Ozzie Albies went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in a 7-3 victory over the Orioles on Sunday.

Albies now has seven hits in his last two games, and it appears his struggles are starting to come to a close. The 21-year-old infielder now has a .264 average on the season, and while he's not showing the same power stroke he did to start the year, he still has his slugging percentage of .492. The future is exceptionally bright for Albies, but he can still help your squad in 2018 as well.

Rajai Davis went 2-for-2 with two runs scored and a stolen bases on Sunday in a win over the Tigers.

The steal gives Davis 16 on the season on, and he's been thrown out just three times in his 19 attempts. His other numbers leave a lot to be desired (.242/.296/.290, one homer in 52 games), but if you're looking for steals and can take the hit in the average and slugging, you know where to find them.
Jun 24 - 4:28 PM

Jose Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a homer in a victory over the Tigers on Sunday.

The homer gives Ramirez 23 on the season. He also walked, and his OPS is up to an outstanding 1.018. Any thoughts that Ramirez was a one-year wonder should be put to the side now, as this is a year and a half of being one of the best hitters in baseball right now. He's also 12-for-14 in steals to go along with his .296/.402/.616 line over 75 games, so he's helping you in every facet of the game.
Jun 24 - 4:24 PM

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-5 with a double and a homer in a blowout win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Lindor's homer gives him 19 on the season, and the double is number 24. He also scored three runs, as he was able to get on and take advantage of the strong games from Jose Ramirez and Edwin Encarnacion. The strong season continues for the young shortstop, as his slash improves to .296/.372/.558 along with 10 steals and 44 RBI.
Jun 24 - 4:20 PM

Chris Sale punched out 13 batters across seven shutout frames in the Red Sox' 5-0 victory over the Mariners on Sunday.

Sale got a whopping 26 swinging strikes in this one as he whiffed double-digit batters for the second start in a row and sixth time in 17 outings this season. The Mariners managed just four hits and one walk against the southpaw and Sale needed just 93 pitches to cruise through his seven innings even with all of the strikeouts. Sale has a big matchup in Yankee Stadium waiting for him his next time out.
Jun 24 - 4:20 PM

Edwin Encarnacion went 2-for-5 with a homer and five RBI in a 12-2 rout of the Tigers on Sunday.

Encarnacion's grand slam put the finishing touches on the blowout win; coming off of Artie Lewicki with one out in the eighth inning. He also drove in a run on an RBI double in the first, so he's up to 53 on the season. After a relatively slow start to the year, Encarnacion now has his OPS up to .794, and he's on pace to drive in 113 runs and hit 38 homers in 2018. Expect his .238 average and .311 on-base percentage to go up in the second half, as well.
Jun 24 - 4:17 PM

Marco Gonzales was charged with five runs over six innings of work in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gonzales held the Red Sox off the scoreboard for the first four innings, but Boston piled up six hits and five runs in the fifth and sixth. The left-hander did strike out six batters on the day and didn't walk anyone. Gonzales had had a rough three-start stretch against the Angels, Yankees and Red Sox, allowing 14 runs. He should find things easier next weekend versus the Royals.
Jun 24 - 4:15 PM

Matt Boyd struggled over three innings in a loss to the Indians on Sunday, allowing six runs on eight hits.

It’s back-to-back rough starts for Boyd, who has seen his ERA rise from 3.00 at the end of May to the 4.15 he offers now. He allowed eight hits in the loss, and he walked two and struck out five. The 27-year-old southpaw has done a decent job of missing bats -- 69 strikeouts in just-over 82 innings -- but his command leaves a lot to be desired, and he doesn’t get deep into games. Boyd is back on the mound on Saturday for a contest with the Blue Jays in Toronto.
