Josh Hamilton went 3-for-6 with a home run, one double, three RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's extra innings loss to the Orioles.
Hamilton is now slashing .293/.365/.442 with six home runs and 32 RBI through 215 at-bats as he continues to put together a nice season following an extended stay on the disabled list. Batting behind both Mike Trout and Albert Pujols certainly hasn't done any favors to his RBI production, but career-worst 35.8 AB/HR isn't going to help his cause either. However, as long as he is healthy he is a threat to put up big numbers and needs to be in everyday lineups in all league formats. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Angels RHP Garrett Richards (knee) threw five innings in a minor league game Saturday.
Richards is very close to returning to action from a severe knee injury that he suffered at the end of 2014. He threw 69 pitches of one hit, one walk, zero run ball on Saturday and is progressing well. Due to the way that the Angels schedule is set up, they won't need a fifth starter for several weeks, giving Richards a chance to jump right into the rotation without kicking any other starters out. Richards' monster 2014 breakout campaign was legit, so as long as owners drafting him are comfortable with his health and knee, he could be a nice discount on draft day. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Stewart had a solid season last year, averaging 4.6 YPC, though he scored just three touchdowns in thirteen games. The 28-year old just 9 games over the past three seasons, and will not be able to handle the load of a workhorse back. The Panthers will likely find a running back in the draft that is capable of handling the other 8-10 carries that the Panthers expect. Considering that Stewart averaged just 13.5 carries per game in 2014, this won't destroy his already limited fantasy value. Analysis: Ben Diamond
