6/20:Detroit Tigers outfielder Leonys Martin did everything he could to ignite the Tigers offense on Tuesday in Cincinnati, but it was all for naught as they fell to the Reds 9-5. Martin had three hits and two walks out of his usual leadoff spot and also drove in two of the Tigers five runs, all of which came in the ninth inning against reliever Wandy Peralta. Those two RBI brought his season total to 28, and he has a respectable .801 OPS on the year.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: MLB

6/20:Chicago Cubs closer Brandon Morrow was placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 17, with a back injury. Morrow injured his back following the series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals. Morrow will be out for at least the next seven days. Pedro Strop could see save opportunities for the time being, as he has a 1.76 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 29 strikeouts in 2018.--RJ Stacey - RotoBallerSource: Mark Gonzales

6/20:Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez has been hitting bombs this season, but his power-heavy approach has caught up to him as his batting average has recently plummeted. Perez is mired in the midst of a 7-for-45 (.156) slump over the last two weeks. Even though he's been struggling, Perez hasn't changed his approach in the least as he's taken zero walks over that stretch. Over the last few years, Perez has switched from his former average-conscious approach to selling out for homers, and it's mostly proved fruitful. However, the downside of such a swing is that there will be cold stretches like this. Hopefully, he comes out of it soon.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource:

6/20:Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas was slumping like the rest of the team until recently, but he seems to be coming out of his funk ever so slowly. Moose tallied one of the team's four singles on Tuesday, and that brought him to six straight games with a hit. Unfortunately, only one of those has been for extra bases, so his power is still a bit missing. Moustakas is biding his time while the obviously-rebuilding Royals hear offers and try to negotiate some type of deal before the trade deadline. While the team has stated multiple times that Moustakas may not be traded, it would be shocking if he's still wearing powder blue in August.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource:

6/20:San Francisco Giants reliever Sam Dyson was named the closer by Bruce Bochy after Tuesday's win against the Marlins. Will Smith initially started the ninth inning but walked a batter and Dyson was called on to close out the game. Dyson is a must-add while he has the job, but it wouldn't be surprising if his leash is short. Dyson has been known to be streaky in the past, and the Giants have Mark MelanconTony Watson and Smith, who are all capable of being the closer as well.--Steve McCarthy - RotoBallerSource: Alex Pavlovic

6/20:Kansas City Royals rookie middle infielder Adalberto Mondesi is now slated to start at shortstop one to two times a week after previously being disregarded for such a thing. Mondesi is one of KC's top prospects, as his power/speed combo at a middle infield position is ultra desirable, but on Monday manager Ned Yost said that he wouldn't displace veteran and offensive black hole Alcides Escobar. On Tuesday, Yost changed his tune and said Mondesi will see weekly starts while Escobar provides zero offense at a variety of other positions like center field and third base. With the team entering full rebuild mode, expect Mondesi to continue to push for more at-bats, assuming he can hit major league pitching better than he has in the past.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: Jeffrey Flanagan
6/20:Tampa Bay Rays closer Sergio Romo came in for the third straight game in a save situation Tuesday versus the Astros. This time, he recorded two outs to close out a 2-1 victory. Romo now has four saves on the season, and having been used in three straight save situations over the last three days suggests he is now the closer for the team. Romo had been serving multiple roles this season, including starting several times. This split role made it tough for fantasy owners to use Romo. When he opened, he could not provide either a win or a save, and he would often be facing the best part of a team's lineup. Now that he seems to be the closer, his value goes up tremendously.--Jamie Mellor - RotoBallerSource:
6/20:Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco is in the lineup batting seventh against the St. Louis Cardinals. J.P. Crawford was placed on the disabled list with a broken hand, which will benefit Franco the most. Franco was losing playing time due to his slump but will get a chance to try to get hot. The 25-year-old has a .707 OPS in 2018 and has not produced enough to be a good fantasy contributor this season, but maybe he can get in a groove.--RJ Stacey - RotoBallerSource: Jim Salisbury

6/20:Kansas City Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar is currently the owner of the longest active consecutive-start streak in the league, and it sounds like manager Ned Yost is intending on keeping that streak intact even though Escobar's expected replacement is on the major league squad. A day after Yost dismissed the idea of replacing Esky with rookie Adalberto Mondesi, he changed his tune and said Mondesi would be starting at shortstop one to two times per week. In response to those lost starts, Yost suggested that he'll still find a way to keep Escobar on the field by moving him to center field or third base because of his athleticism. The additional position qualifications would be nice for fantasy baseball if Escobar was any good offensively, but he's still hitting .204 on the season and has nearly no fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: Jeffrey Flanagan

6/20:Kansas City Royals top prospect Nick Pratto dominated in the Single-A All-Star game on Tuesday night as he blasted a home run and drove in four runs en route to winning the MVP award. Pratto was one of four Lexington Legends named to the All-Star team, and the Royals organization has high hopes for the 19-year-old. He's tallied seven home runs and nine stolen bases in the first half of 2018, but he's only hitting .238. KC is just starting a full rebuild, and Pratto will be considered one of their key pieces in the future, so don't expect him to be rushed up through the levels anytime soon.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: Lexington Legends
6/20:Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (knee) has been hit hard by the injury bug in 2018. After having cartilage restoration surgery in his knee back in October, he finally returned to the Red Sox lineup on May 26. That was short-lived, however, as Pedroia only played in three games before being put back on the disabled list with knee inflammation. Manager Alex Cora has said that Pedroia is still not in a position to resume baseball activities. This is certainly worrying. The injury issues make Pedroia a volatile fantasy commodity, especially due to the fact that there is no timetable for Pedroia's return. Even in the deepest of leagues, he is tough to roster at this point.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: Boston Globe
6/20:Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell is absent from the lineup card Wednesday. Russell has been hitting the ball well after a slow start, but his lack of run production has lowered his value to fantasy owners. Second baseman Javier Baez will slide over to shortstop Wednesday and Ben Zobrist will be at second base. Russell is expected to start on Thursday versus the Reds.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Bruce Miles

6/20:Boston Red Sox third basement Rafael Devers hit a home run in his second consecutive game and was the only offensive bright spot in a 6-2 loss to the Twins. He finished the game 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI. Devers has really been heating up lately; in his last 13 games, he has eight RBI and seven extra-base hits. Do not give up on this young man and his .243 average, as he has demonstrated he can hit for power and average in the minors.--Ellis Canady - RotoBallerSource:

6/20:Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen picked up his 18th save of the season in Tuesday's day game against the Cubs. Jansen entered the ninth inning after an exciting eighth in which his team went up by a run and proceeded to shut the door, pitching a 1-2-3 inning with a strikeout. Jansen has now converted 18 of 20 save opportunities this season with a 2.41 ERA, 34 strikeouts, and nine walks in 33 2/3 innings pitched. He remains a top fantasy relief pitcher/closer option and should be in owners' lineups at all times.--Connelly Doan - RotoBallerSource:

6/20:Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Jon Jay went 2-for-5 with two runs in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Angels. After a rough start to his Diamondbacks career, Jay has been a model leadoff hitter for Arizona, collecting multiple hits in six of his last eight games. Over that span, Jay has scored 10 runs to go along with a .500 on-base percentage. He has given manager Torey Lovullo no reason to remove him from the leadoff spot and should continue to rack up the runs in front of Paul Goldschmidt.--Jonathan Chan - RotoballerSource: ESPN
