Carlos Gonzalez (ankle) remains out of the Rockies' starting lineup Tuesday.

Wait, Carlos Gonzalez is missing multiple games? No way! Same player, same story. I have no sympathy for his fantasy owners because he does this every single season, except, this time, he hasn't hit well when healthy.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan

Francisco Rodriguez walked one and struck out two in the ninth inning of Tuesday’s game with the Phillies to earn his 17th save of the season.

K-Rod is one of the more reliable closers in the game, but it’s unfortunate that the Brewers can’t provide him with more opportunities. Regardless, when he does make an appearance, he is in to close the door and he does that more often than not. Continue to roll him out there on a regular basis. Analysis: Colby Conway

Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a stolen base on Tuesday against the Phillies.

Ramirez is hitting just .222 this season and is actually outside the top-25 at his position. He stole his first base of the year tonight, but he still has hit just nine homers in 2015. He is becoming less and less relevant in leagues, especially shallower leagues. He may start for some teams, but there are others where Ramirez is a backup. Analysis: Colby Conway

Ryan Braun went 4-for-5 with a double and two runs scored against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Braun has three multi-hit performances in his last five contests, showcasing his five-category prowess during this stretch. In the past five games he is hitting .647 (11-for-17) with one home run, five RBI, two stolen bases and five runs scored. Keep him active moving forward. Analysis: Colby Conway

Taylor Jungmann allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits with two walks while striking out four in six innings on Tuesday against the Phillies.

Since arriving in the big leagues earlier this month, Jungmann has pitched very well. He is going to strike out a fair number of batters, but he is going to walk a couple. He has shown the ability to limit the opposition’s hits and runs, which is definitely a good sign for a pitcher. He is 2-1 on the year with a 2.79 ERA and he has some value in deeper leagues or NL-only formats. He isn’t a fantasy game changer by any means, but he is definitely better than many pitchers on the waiver wire. His next start will come on Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds. Analysis: Colby Conway

Cesar Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a walk, one run scored and two stolen bases on Tuesday against the Brewers.

In the past three days (four games), Hernandez has nine hits, three runs scored and six stolen bases. He has played well enough during Utley’s absence to warrant regular at-bats moving forward, or at least fantasy owners hope so. He is going to be a major boost to many teams in the speed department and the best thing for him would be a Chase Utley trade to pave the way for regular, consistent playing time. Analysis: Colby Conway

Cole Hamels allowed two earned runs on five hits with one walk and seven strikeouts in seven innings against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Amidst the swirling trade rumors, Hamels continues to produce for the porous Phillies. Hamels can block deals to nine teams, but he also has a no-trade list where he will refuse to go. Texas still seems like a likely landing spot for the southpaw, but his fantasy value is sure to rise no matter where he gets traded. Let’s be honest, any team he goes to is sure to have a more potent offense than the Phillies right? Hamels will take his 5-6 record and 3.22 ERA into a Sunday start against the Atlanta Braves. Analysis: Colby Conway

Erasmo Ramirez went 5 2/3 innings striking out seven while giving up just one run on two hits against the Indians on Tuesday.

Ramirez pitched for the first time in ten days and was effectively, but his bullpen failed him, seeing his record fall to 6-3. His seven strikeouts tied his season high, while his only blemish was a solo shot by Jason Kipnis. His healthy is the only thing keep him from the rotation as Ramirez has a good 1.14 WHIP and .224 BAA on the season. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Danny Salazar went threw 7 2/3 innings of dominant ball, allowing two hits and two runs, one earned, and striking out two on Tuesday.

Salazar was flirting with a no-hitter through six innings before allowing a single to Curt Casali. It was a welcome sight for fantasy owners for Salazar to bounce back from two ineffective starts in a row to shut down Tampa. He is now 7-3 on the season with a 1.16 WHIP and 3.80 ERA in a nice bounceback year. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Giovanny Urshela was 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Indians' 6-2 win over the Rays.

Urshela has a hit in nine straight games, but this was his first extra-base hit in that stretch. It was also his first RBI over the same time span so you can see he has limited fantasy value. It's fine to pass for the time being on Urshela, even in the deepest of leagues. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jason Kipnis was 1-for-5 with a solo home run on Tuesday against the Rays.

Kipnis has been the best second-base in baseball this season and continues to showcase all of his tools. The homer was his sixth of the season as his SLG sits at .515 for year to help his .936 OPS. He did, however, strikeout three times, making that seven in his last four games, a stat worth watching for the potential All-Star. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jake Marisnick (hamstring) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Fresno on Wednesday.

Even with a scorching hot first month of the season, Marisnick's 85 wRC+ for the year is uninspiring. He's unlikely to play much upon his return, so he has little value, if any. Analysis: Brett Talley

David Murphy was 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI on Tuesday against the Rays.

Murphy hit his fifth homer of the season to raise his AVG to .329 and OPS to .866. He doesn't get full-time AB and won't be a huge addition to your fantasy team. But if Murphy does start to see more time, he is worth the add with a dangerous lineup ahead of him in Cleveland. Analysis: Rob Trayah
