Joaquin Benoit notched a four-out save Friday against the Braves.

It was his second save of the season and his first since taking over the closer role from Huston Street, who was traded to the Angels last week. Benoit owns a quality 1.93 ERA and 49/13 K/BB ratio over 42 innings this season and is capable of being a valuable fantasy closer the rest of the way. Of course, that's assuming he doesn't end up in a set-up role elsewhere in advance of the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

Alexei Ramirez homered and scored three runs in helping to lead the White Sox to a decisive victory over the Twins in Minnesota on Friday.

He finished the night 2-for-5, with his solo blast coming off opposing starter Kevin Correia in the third inning. The All-Star shortstop has been one of the finest offensive weapons at the shortstop position this season, slashing .283/.321/.401 with nine homers, 44 RBI and 17 stolen bases.
Jul 25 - 11:12 PM

Tommy Medica went 4-for-5 with an RBI single in Friday's win over the Braves.

The four hits were a career-high. Medica has seven hits over the past two days, but he could move back into a reserve role with Yonder Alonso (wrist) nearing the end of a minor league rehab assignment.
Jul 25 - 11:11 PM

Chris Denorfia went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs scored Friday against the Braves.

Even with the three-hit night, Denorfia is batting just .246/.298/.325 over 85 games this season. Still, he has a reputation for punishing left-handed pitching and has experience at all three outfield positions, so he should draw plenty of interest leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
Jul 25 - 11:11 PM

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored in Friday's loss to the Padres.

Freeman had half of the Braves' hits on the night. The triple was his fourth of the season, which is more than the likes of Jose Reyes and Jacoby Ellsbury. The 24-year-old owns a .283/.373/.480 batting line on the year.
Jul 25 - 11:10 PM

John Danks picked up his ninth victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Twins to four runs on six hits over seven innings of work.

Danks punched out five on the night without walking a batter. Staked to a big early lead, Danks was in cruise control most of the night, throwing plenty of strikes and giving the White Sox bullpen a bit of a rest. He’ll bring a 4.40 ERA and 1.39 WHIP into Thursday’s matchup against the Tigers in Detroit.
Jul 25 - 11:08 PM

Chris Colabello went 1-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs in Friday's loss to the White Sox.

Colabello's two-run single off John Danks in the sixth inning pulled the Twins to within 8-3, but that would be as close as they'd get. He has seen increased playing time at first base with Joe Mauer on the shelf, but remains a fringe fantasy option in all but AL-only formats.
Jul 25 - 11:08 PM

Oswaldo Arcia belted his seventh home run of the season in a losing effort against the White Sox on Friday.

His solo blast came off opposing southpaw John Danks in the seventh inning. He also singled, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .225/.310/.390 to go along with seven homers and 20 RBI.
