DJ LeMahieu went 4-for-4 with a double and four runs scored against the Braves on Wednesday.

LeMahieu isn't hitting homers or stealing bases, but his average sits at .314 and he's up to 74 runs scored, including 41 in his last 45 games. It should be enough to make him a top-10 fantasy second baseman anyway.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, four RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base as the Rangers pounded the Tigers 12-6 on Wednesday.

He also walked in the game just for good measure. The shortstop homered in the fifth, drove in two runs with a single in the sixth and added another RBI single in the seventh. Andrus is having by far his best season at the plate. Today's homer doubled his previous career high of eight set last year. He has a .299 batting average with 16 homers, 76 runs, 64 RBI and 23 stolen bases. He's playing the role of kingmaker in some fantasy leagues this year.

The Dodgers said after Wednesday's game that Yu Darvish left as a precaution because of back tightness.

Darvish had thrown 90 pitches while giving up three runs (all on solo homers) in six innings, so there's no guarantee that he was going to get through the seventh anyway. The hope is that this was nipped in the bud and will cause no further issue.

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Tigers.

His two-run shot in the third inning knocked starter Anibal Sanchez out of the game. The future Hall of Famer spent the first two months of the season on the disabled list with a calf injury but hasn't let that affect his performance since returning. He has a marvelous .313/.381/.549 triple slash with 13 homers and 52 RBI in 65 games.
Aug 17 - 1:34 AM

Nomar Mazara went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Tigers on Wednesday.

He belted a two-run shot off starter Anibal Sanchez in the second inning, then plated another run with a single in the sixth. The promising second-year outfielder is still one of the youngest players in the major leagues but you wouldn't know it from his performance. He has a .258 batting average with 15 home runs and 77 RBI in 108 games.
Aug 17 - 1:27 AM

Cole Hamels was credited with a win over the Tigers even though he yielded four runs in six frames on Wednesday.

He struggled with his control, walking five batters and allowing a pair of home runs in the contest. Lucky for him his teammates brought their premium lumber to the ballpark to back him up with 12 runs. He served up a home run to the first batter he faced (Ian Kinsler) and was taken deep by center fielder Mikie Mahtook in the third frame. Hamels improved to 8-1 with a 3.48 ERA in 15 starts. His 62/31 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 98 1/3 innings is far worse than his stellar career norm and sounds a note of concern for the rest of the season.
Aug 17 - 1:20 AM

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-2 and worked a pair of walks in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

He singled and doubled in the contest before being replaced by a pinch-hitter when the game was out of reach. Miggy has not been fully healthy at any point this season and it shows in his diminished stats. The perennial MVP candidate has no chance at any awards this year. He has a .255/.343/.408 slash line with 13 home runs and 53 RBI in 432 plate appearances.
Aug 17 - 1:13 AM

Ian Kinsler went 2-for-3, walked twice, scored twice, stole a base and hit a solo home run in a loss to the Rangers.

He started the game with a bang by taking Cole Hamels deep leading off the first inning. He walked and rode home on a Mikie Mahtook dinger in the third. The aging second baseman is no longer a fantasy stud but can still fill up a box score on occasion. He owns a .248 batting average with 12 homers, 70 runs, 35 RBI and nine steals in 101 games.
