Alonzo Gee has opted out of his contract with the Pelicans.
Gee averaged 22.4 minutes per game last season, but he hardly made a huge impact out on the court. He's definitely not going to be a team's top priority in the offseason, but he could be a bargain signing that could pay off, especially if he can revert back to his time with the Denver Nuggets. For those 39 games in a Nuggets uniform, he shot 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.
Steven Moya went 1-for-4 with a solo home run (4) against the Marlins on Wednesday.
The 24-year old Moya continues to impress as he belted his fourth homer of the year and fourth since June 19th, which is a span of six games. Moya has at least one hit in eight of his last nine games, including two three-hit outings mixed in. Through 17 games this year, Moya has posted a .993 OPS. We doubt that this is sustainable, but ride him while he’s hot in all fantasy formats.
Free agent small forward Nicolas Batum mulling over options, including talking with Lakers.
The Lakers could really use a player like Batum. Despite dealing with shoulder problems the past two seasons, Batum continues to be a quality small forward in the NBA. He averaged 14.9 points, 5.8 assists and 6.1 rebounds per game this past season, showcasing his ability to do a little bit of everything. The Washington Wizards have also been rumored to express interest in Batum's services.
Ichiro Suzuki went 2-for-5 with two singles and an RBI against the Tigers on Wednesday.
Wednesday was nothing but another day at the office for Suzuki, as he notched his second consecutive two-hit outing against the Tigers. Ichiro is now hitting .342 on the year and also is owner to a .417 on-base percentage. He opened the year as the Marlins fourth outfielder but with the way he’s hitting, it’s impossible to keep him out of the lineup. After his two hits on Wednesday, he’s just 14 hits away from 3,000 major league knocks. He may not be the same fantasy star he once was, but there are some leagues his services could definitely be used in.
Jose Altuve extended his career high on-base streak to 32 games Wednesday.
Altuve is having an MVP caliber season and he's now reached a new career high of 32 games. Just to put things in perspective, the MLB record for most consecutive games of reaching base is 84 by Ted Williams back in 1949. Altuve may not reach that mark, but if he continues doing what he has been, he could be hauling in an MVP trophy by seasons end.
