Danny Valencia went 4-for-5 with two RBI versus the Astros on Friday.

Valencia's hot streak had fizzled of late, but he's reached base eight times the last two days, raising his OBP from .315 to .333. The Mariners should still be thinking about a first-base upgrade prior to the trade deadline. Valencia isn't bad, but he could be more useful as a part-timer.

After a slow start the veteran can once again be trusted in most AL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed play.
