Paulo Orlando went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.
Orlando resides in the lower half of the Royals order, but the 30-year-old just keeps hitting. He's now batting .323/.347/.404 through 70 games. If Orlando ever moves to a more prime spot in the lineup, he could be worth a look outside of AL-only leagues.
Ryon Healy launched a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Rays on Saturday.
It was the second homer of his career after being called up last week. He is slashing .281/.303/.563 in 32 at-bats. He has 16 homers combined between the minors and majors this year. At 6-5/225 he is a big man, but was not a huge home run hitter in the minors. He was more of a high batting average guy, having hit over .300 the last two years. Healy has been getting everyday playing time since his call-up and could be a quality fantasy producer the rest of the season.
Cole Hamels allowed only an unearned run over 5 1/3 innings of work in a win over the Royals on Saturday.
Hamels wasn't as efficient as he was in a dominant win over the Cubs his last time out, giving up five hits and walking three on Saturday, but the result was the same. The southpaw has now won six of his last seven decisions and is 11-2 on the year. Hamels owns a shiny 2.87 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 120/50 K/BB ratio ahead of Thursday's rematch with these same Royals.
Giancarlo Stanton broke out of a miniature slump in a big way Saturday, finishing 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Marlins past the Mets 7-2.
Stanton connected for a two-run home run in the third inning, later adding an RBI single. The big night broke a 6-for-27 (.222) stretch dating back to last week's All-Star break. The homer was his 21st of the season. The 26-year-old is hitting .241/.334/.495 with 55 RBI and 44 runs scored on the year.
Jake Smolinski hit a two-run home run to tie the game in the ninth inning of a game the Athletics would win later in the inning on Saturday.
He went 2-for-4 in the game, boosting his line to .324/.375/.528 with six bombs in 108 at-bats. He is obviously deserving of more playing time but will not be fantasy-worthy until he gets it.
Oswaldo Arcia went 2-for-3 with an RBI but the Rays lost on Saturday.
He stroked an RBI single in the second inning and added a double later in the game. The part-time player is now batting .230 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 152 at-bats.
Martin Prado went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Saturday's win over the Mets.
Prado had a pair of RBI singles in the win, the first in the fifth and another in the seventh inning. He's now got 35 RBI on the year. The 32-year-old doesn't produce many counting stats, but he's hitting .317/.366/.410 with 41 runs scored through 91 games.
Kevin Gausman shut out the Indians for seven innings, striking out seven, walking three and giving up only four hits as the Orioles won 5-2 on Saturday.
The win was only the second of the season for Gausman even though he has pitched well. His record improves to 2-7 with a 3.77 ERA in 17 starts. He has fanned 95 batters and walked only 23 in 100 1/3 innings.
