Yasiel Puig went 4-for-5 with three triples, a double, two RBI, and two runs scored in the 8-0 win over the Giants Friday.
Puig had a chance to become the first player with four triples in over 100 years, but flew out in his final at-bat. Instead, he became just the 33rd player in MLB history to have three triples in a single game. If he is going to hit like this while playing center field, which he did for the first time this season Friday, manager Don Mattingly may want to keep him there. Side note, it is far more unlikely for a player to have three triples in a single game than it is for one to get a cycle as there have been, in comparison, 300 players to have hit for the cycle over the last 100 years.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Carlos Gonzalez (knee) was removed from Friday's game for precautionary reasons.
To borrow one from Adam Carolla: Sssssssssssssssssssssshocking. Gonzalez has managed just 717 plate appearances combined in the last two years, and fantasy owners are all too familiar with his health woes. When healthy in the last two seasons, he's struck out a fair bit more than he ever has before, so we can longer treat CarGo as a top option when healthy. There's definitely upside, but it's hard to imagine him reaching it. Analysis: Brett Talley
Delino DeShields is nearing a spot on the Rangers Opening Day roster.
DeShields was a Rule 5 pick, so it appears the Rangers will hold on to him rather than send him back down I-45 to Houston. DeShields will likely serve as a fifth outfielder and a late game situational player where Texas can utilize his speed. Unless the Rangers have another rash of injuries this year, DeSheilds isn't going to get enough work to be fantasy relevant. Analysis: Brett Talley
