Alex Gordan blasted his 14th home run of the season while adding a walk but it was not enough as the Royals fell to the Rockies 5-2 on Wednesday.
Gordon had a five game hit streak, including four-straight multi-hit performances, come to an end Tuesday, but he picked it right back up with his second home run in four days. The Royals have been on quite the surge lately and it's no coincidence that a Gordon hit streak has something to do with it. Him finishing the season strong will obviously be a blessing to the Royals themselves, but fantasy owners will be freaking out if he can put it together for them finally as well. With a .284/.360/.450 on the year and a hot streak towards the end of the season, Gordon could end up the fantasy MVP for a lot of teams.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Dwyane Wade (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's game.
Wade didn't play on Wednesday due to a sore knee, so of course he is questionable for Friday. If he isn't in the starting lineup, Mario Chalmers will once again get the start and see a bump in value. Wade has been relatively healthy this season and has produced in a big way in the process. He's averaging 21.6 points and 5.2 assists per game. Analysis: David Kerr
Ross Detwiler has made the Rangers starting rotation.
There are far worse pitchers with starting jobs in baseball, so Detwiler is deserving of this chance. He's bounced back and forth between the starting rotation and the bullpen while pitching for the Nationals, but should settle in as a member of the Rangers' rotation. He has solid value in AL-Only leagues. Analysis: David Kerr
