Brett Gardner went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, one RBI and three runs scored against the Rangers on Tuesday.
Who are you and what have you done with Brett Gardner? Are you serious? Gardner is now 7-for-10 with three home runs, three RBI and five runs scored over these last two games and he's suddenly looking like a beast at the plate. Unfortunately, this is not power upon which you can rely and the fact remains that, while he has 17 stolen bases on the year, he has just two this month and just two in June. Yes, moments like these are nice, but Gardner was drafted for his 30-to-40-steal potential and if he's not giving you that, then you have to find a speedster who will. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Meyers Leonard will start for injured Noah Vonleh on Monday.
He offensively plays like a stretch four, providing plenty of space for the Blazers guards to operate, however on defense Leonard is rather stout considering his inconsistent playing time. With Vonleh out, Leonard will be expected to play more often, while providing the Blazers with some much-needed size in the frontcourt. Because of his above-average three-point shooting for his size, Leonard might be worth a look in very deep leagues, or for daily players who are strapped on a very tight budget on Monday night.
