Martin Prado went 3-for-4 with his fifth home run, a double, a walk, five RBI, and a run scored in Saturday's 10-6 win over the Phillies.
Prado has now hit safely in five straight games and is batting .444 (8-for-18) with one home run, six RBI and three runs scored over that span. We're not looking at big numbers from Prado at all, but he manages to post totals reasonable enough to leave him in your lineup, and maybe just move him around to keep the roster full thanks to his multi-position eligibility.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Mark Teixeira went 3-for-4 with a solo home run against the Mets on Saturday.
That’s Tex’s eighth home run of the year. He won’t continue to hit home runs at this rate, but it’s not unreasonable to think he can hit 25 or more this year. He has also drawn as many walks as he has strikeouts. And he’s hitting .254 despite a .163 BABIP. That’s mainly because most of the balls he’s hitting are leaving the yard right now, but it’s still encouraging for his batting average going forward. Analysis: Brett Talley
