Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-4 and homered off the Orioles' Bud Norris on Tuesday.
Since Danny Santana is set to play shortstop this year, Nunez may see more time in the outfield than the infield for the Twins. It's too bad he's not much of an option in center or he'd be a fantasy sleeper with his steal potential. As is, he might be in line for less action that last year, assuming he stays with the Twins.

Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 with a double, stolen base and a run scored in a win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

The stolen base was his ninth in 12 attempts this season. Nunez will continue to function as a role player heading into the 2015 season.

Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-5 with an RBI, stolen base and run scored in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Every batter in the Twins lineup scored at least once, but none scored more than Nunez. The shortstop actually scored twice in the Twins' nine-run eighth inning. The stolen base was his fifth of the season. He started out hot out of the gate, but the Nunez is batting just .252/.283/.367 and isn't much of an option for fantasy purposes.

Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in the Twins' lopsided 10-2 win over the Royals on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old has been on fire through his first 27 games, posting a .321/.354/.487 line, and with Danny Santana out he'll continue to find regular at-bats in the near term.

Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 and drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Making his fifth career start in left field, Nunez punctuated the Twins' three-run, eighth-inning rally with a base knock that scored Josmil Pinto. He got thrown out at second base while trying to stretch the hit to a double, but the damage had already been done. Nunez has made three straight starts for the Twins and could churn out some value in AL-only leagues.
