Logan Morrison went 3-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base, and two runs scored Tuesday against the Marlins.
It look long enough, but Morrison continues to heat up at the plate. He’s 12-for-23 (.522) over his last eight games and has improved his batting average from .119 to .206 along the way.
Giancarlo Stanton socked a solo homer Tuesday against the Rays.
It was his 12th home run of the season and his first since May 15. Stanton has been a complete mess at the plate recently while piling up strikeouts at an alarming pace, but his power potential is unmatched. Fantasy owners need to be patient.
Justin Upton (quad) is out of the Tigers' lineup again Tuesday against the Phillies.
The struggling Upton was a late scratch Monday due to right quad tightness and he's apparently not quite right yet. Mike Aviles will make the start in left field.
Cesar Hernandez has been dropped to seventh in the order for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.
Hernandez has mostly batted second recently, but he owns an underwhelming .252/.301/.305 batting line through 42 games. Freddy Galvis will get a chance in the No. 2 spot versus Justin Verlander.
Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Tuesday versus the Blue Jays.
He's likely just getting a breather. Austin Romine will start behind the plate and catch Nathan Eovaldi.
Carlos Gomez (rib cage) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.
Gomez landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a bruised left rib cage. He's not eligible to return until the beginning of June, but getting a bunch of at-bats in the minors isn't the worst idea for him. He's batting just .182 with a .486 OPS in 34 games this season.
Astros OF prospect Teoscar Hernandez clubbed four hits including three doubles Monday in a win for Double-A Corpus Christi.
He plated four runs, giving him nine RBI in his last nine games. Hernandez has had a productive month, hitting .338 with a .400 OBP in May. The 23-year-old leads the Texas League with 15 steals and is fifth in walks with 22. Hernandez has made huge strides this year after batting only .219 in 121 games for the Hooks last season.
Travis Shaw (hand) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.
Shaw is currently dealing with a minor injury to his left hand is considered day-to-day. Josh Rutlege is filling in at third base.
