Steve Pearce went 2-for-4, scored twice and smacked a solo home run in a win over the Rays on Wednesday.
He took starter Jacob Faria over the well in right field in the fourth inning for his 12th homer of the year. Pearce was awful for the first few injury-plagued months of the season but has gotten things turned around nicely in recent weeks. The veteran multi-position player is up to .269/.342/.475 with 35 RBI in 73 games. He should be a strong fantasy hitter down the stretch. Aug 16 - 10:39 PM

As long as Pearce is playing regularly, he's a fringe mixed-league option.
