Tim Anderson yanked two longballs, drove in four runs and scored three times during Saturday's 8-4 win over the Tigers.

He also made three errors in the contest but his fantasy owners don't care one bit. He popped a solo dinger off starter Francisco Liriano in the fifth inning, then topped that by belting a three-run jack off reliever Louis Coleman in the next frame. He also walked and scored a third run in the ballgame. The leadoff batter has added considerable power this year and is stealing bases at a rapid clip as well. He has a .246 batting average with 10 homers, 18 RBI and 26 runs. He's swiped 11 bases and has been caught only once.

Christian Yelich went 3-for-5 with an RBI triple, a two-run double and three runs scored in Saturday's 17-6 romp over the Mets.

Yelich was one of three Brewers batters (joining Lorenzo Cain and Jesus Aguilar) to finish with three knocks. He raced around for an RBI triple in the fourth inning and added a two-run double in the fifth, putting him on Cycle Watch for the back half of the game. While he already had the most difficult leg of the cycle -- the triple -- under his belt relatively early, the former Marlins outfielder came up short of the fun statistical when he failed to find himself a home run by the end of the contest. He's played solid (if unspectacular) baseball this season, slashing .296/.365/.463 with five home runs and 23 RBI in 162 at-bats.
May 26 - 9:09 PM

Jose Abreu went 4-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Tigers on Saturday.

He smacked a double that plated Tim Anderson in the third inning and he followed that up with a solo dinger off starter Francisco Liriano in the fifth frame. The first baseman also walked in the contest to reach base in all five of his chances. He is mashing to the tune of .319/.382/.560 with nine homers and 30 RBI on the season.
May 26 - 9:02 PM

Jesus Aguilar went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and a two-run single in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Aguilar was just one of several Brewers hitters to come through with huge performances against the Mets on Saturday. As a team, they finished with a whopping 17 runs on 19 hits. His initial contribution to the carnage came when the game was still actually a game, as he swatted a solo home run off Jason Vargas in the third inning to pull the Brewers within 5-3. Things would be considerably different by the time he notched his two-run single in the seventh inning. That made the score 12-6 in favor of the Brew Crew and was just the opening throat-clearing in what eventually evolved into a seven-run frame for the home team. For his part overall, Aguilar is now hitting a delightful .317/.380/.569 with eight home runs and 26 RBI across 45 games played.
May 26 - 9:00 PM

Hector Santiago allowed three runs (two earned) in five innings and took home a win against the Tigers on Saturday.

He surrendered two home runs to Jeimer Candelario and he's now given up 10 homers in just 43 1/3 innings this year. He was able to keep the other Tiger hitters under control well enough to snare his first win of the season. He yielded seven hits total and one walk while fanning five in the ballgame. The veteran left-hander has a 4.98 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 14 games (five starts) and is not a recommended fantasy option except perhaps as a streamer in very deep leagues.
May 26 - 8:59 PM

Wilmer Flores went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

This was Flores' first three-hit game of the 2018 season and perhaps could get him started with the bat. He's cracked double-digit home runs in each of the prior three seasons, but has just three dingers to his credit through his first 45 games played during the current campaign. His batting line on the whole -- a mark of .252/.325/.405 -- is a fair shade off of what we're accustomed to.
May 26 - 8:50 PM

Jeimer Candelario slugged two home runs, drove in three runs and scored three times but his team fell to the White Sox on Saturday.

He drilled a two-run shot in the first inning and popped a solo dinger in his next at-bat. Unfortunately his exploits were one-upped by Tim Anderson on the other side of the field. Candelario has emerged as a strong fantasy asset for the first time in his career. He owns a .277 batting average with seven homers, 20 RBI and 24 runs scored in 39 games. He was recently activated from the disabled list after missing time with left wrist tendinitis.
May 26 - 8:50 PM

Victor Martinez went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in a loss to the White Sox on Saturday.

The 39-year-old can still put the bat on the baseball although there is less and less punch in that stick with each passing year. He has one of the best strikeout rates in the league and walks nearly as often as he strikes out but has managed a paltry .244/.305/.365 slash line with four homers and 22 RBI in 46 games.
