Casey McGehee went 2-for-3 with a double, one RBI, a run scored and a walk during the Marlins' 5-0 win over the Phillies on Wednesday.
McGehee has now put together a nine-game hit streak and has 49 RBI on a season where he was never expected to do much of anything. He may only have one home run but the 20 doubles he's hit this year indicates that there is still power lurking and should he be able to maintain a solid average in the second half, we could see a boost in home runs. It's certainly nothing to bank on, but he's certainly proven himself enough right now to warrant consideration for your fantasy squad.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Fernando Rodney has hit a recent rough patch, but said he's put it behind him.
Rodney's closing job is in danger right now, as they 38-year old has already blown a save and has given up in seven runs 3 1/3 innings. Carson Smith could be next in line for saves should Rodney be removed from the job, though Yoervis Medina is another option in the back of the bullpen. As a closer, Rodney will have to have a short term memory and put the issues behind him, as he has a great track record and the stuff is still there for him to succeed in the ninth inning.
