Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored during the Orioles' 6-4 win against the White Sox on Monday.
Jones continues to heat up along with the weather this summer, having now logged three straight multi-hit games, raising his batting average up to .296 with 14 home runs and 47 RBI on the season. After a terrible month of April, Jones has since been a great fantasy asset, including batting .329 with eight home runs and 18 RBI in the June, which is by far his best month to date. He will likely slow down a bit considering the pace he is on, but even if he does he is still one of the top fantasy outfield options ot own the rest of the way.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jed Lowrie (right thumb) has progressed to swinging a fungo bat.
On May 18th, Lowrie was transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day DL. He is still progressing well, but will not be eligible to return to the bigs until a few days after the All-Star break at the earliest. Once he does return, try to grab him on the waiver wire, as he came out of the gates swinging a hot bat (.300 average, four home runs, 10 RBI in 18 games). Analysis: Dom Murtha
Patrick Corbin is scheduled to return next week against the Rangers.
Everything went well in Corbin's final rehab start, so the D-Backs feel that he is ready to make his return next week against the Rangers. After going 14-8 with a 3.41 ERA and 178 strikeouts in 2013, Arizona had high hopes going forward for the young left-hander. Tommy John surgery sidelined him for all of last season up until this point, so it will be interesting to see how he has recovered. Analysis: Dom Murtha
