Billy Hamilton went 1-for-3 with an RBI and his 40th stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.
Hamilton has his safely in four of his first six games since returning from the All-Star break, more importantly he has now logged a stolen base in back-to-back games. His fantasy value relies solely on his speed, and up to this point he has certainly lived up to the hype, batting .281 with 40 steals and 49 runs scored through 356 at-bats. It would be nice to see him get on base at a higher clip (.312 OBP), but that will come as he progresses in his big league career. Either way he is an elite base-stealer that is a must-own in all formats. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
