Ian Desmond went 1-for-3 with a double and a pair of RBI in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Marlins.
Desmond continued to have his best season at the plate in the month of July, slashing .306/.359/.482, which is the only month in which he has finished with an batting average north of .300 up to this point. Now sitting on a .250 average with 17 home runs, 64 RBI and 10 stolen bases, Desmond remains one of the best shortstop in all of fantasy, despite owning a miserable 31.3 percent strikeout rate.

Sean Marshall (shoulder) has resumed throwing from flat ground.
Marshall was shut down at the beginning of spring training with shoulder soreness, but has resumed throwing. Last June, Marshall underwent season ending shoulder surgery after making just 15 appearances in 2014. The only thing scarier than last season's 7.71 ERA is the fact that he has had some sort of shoulder injury in each of the last three seasons. Leave this guy off your draft board.

Nathan Eovaldi has been working on improving his splitter during spring training.
Eovaldi is more of a thrower than a pitcher right now, but the Yankees are hoping he can develop into a mainstay in their rotation. Even though he hasn't had a winning season in his four year career, his velocity is hope for optimism. Eovaldi got knocked around a lot last year, but he doesn't walk many batters, something else the Yankees are excited about. Eovaldi is going late in drafts and there is some solid value to be had if he can take the next step forward. Analysis: Colby Conway
