Hitters to target for the second half


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:49 pm ET) Need a sleeper for the second half? Matt Adams, Martin Prado, Manny Machado, J.J. Hardy and C.J. Cron are some of my favorites.

Check out my latest column to find out why.

Manager: Joey Votto will return in weeks, not months


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Reds manager Bryan Price believes first baseman Joey Votto's timetable will come down to weeks, not months, MLB.com reports Saturday.

"It's so far out, and when I say 'far out,' it's more weeks; I'm not talking about months and months and months," Price said. "But with both Brandon [Phillips] and Joey, we're talking more about weeks than days. So I think it would be reckless of me to suggest there's a due date on when either one of them would be back."

Lucas Duda continues hot hitting with homer


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Mets first baseman Lucas Duda continued his season turnaround Friday, as he went deep in a 7-1 win over the Marlins.

The Mets jumped on the Marlins early in the game, and Duda was a big part of that. He slugged a two-run home run in the third inning to put the Mets up 4-0, with his only hit of the game. He was 1 for 4 with one run scored and two driven in.

Duda is now hitting .300/.432/.600 with two home runs and seven RBI in 10 games during the month of July. 


Tommy Medica to miss multiple games, but may avoid DL


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Padres infielder Tommy Medica is not available Friday against the Dodgers, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Medica will likely also be held out the rest of the weekend. With the All-Star break approaching, there's a chance Medica will avoid being placed on the disabled list. He's dealing with a right groin injury. 


Tommy Medica remains out Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Padres first baseman Tommy Medica was not in the team's starting lineup Friday.

Tommy Medica departs with groin tightness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Medica left the game in the bottom of the second inning with the injury, and was replaced with Rene Rivera. Medica is hitting .230/.275/.410 with four homers and 13 RBI in 122 at-bats. His status remains uncertain for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

Justin Morneau to take part in the Home Run Derby


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau will take part in the Home Run Derby.

Morneau was a finalist in the Final Vote, but lost out to Anthony Rizzo. Despite that, Morneau was asked to take part in the Derby. While Morneau could still find his way onto the All-Star roster as an injury replacement, he doesn't have to be on the team to take part in the Derby. Yoenis Cespedes won last season despite not being on the All-Star team.

Morneau won the Derby back in 2008. He's hitting .313/.346/.509 over 320 at-bats. He's hit 13 home runs. 


Ryan Howard clubs number 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard belted his 15th home run Thursday against the Brewers.

Howard waited until the ninth inning to unleash his power. With one man on, Howard belted an 88 mph fastball out to center for the two-run shot. Howard previously clubbed a double earlier in the game. He finished 2 for 5, with two runs scored and three RBI. 


Anthony Rizzo named to All-Star team


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo won Major League Baseball's final vote, earning a spot on the 2014 All-Star team.

Rizzo was more than a deserving candidate for the spot. He's hitting .280/.387/.512 over 328 at-bats. Rizzo's 20 home runs trails only Giancarlo Stanton in the National League. He's been one of the few offensive bright spots for the Cubs this season. Rizzo will be a reserve to open the game.


Anthony Rizzo slugs 20th home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo went 2 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 4-1 loss to the Reds Wednesday.

Rizzo has homered on three straight days as he heads towards the All-Star break on a bit of a hot streak. He has hit .280/.387/.512 with 20 home runs and 49 RBI in 328 at-bats.


Jake Goebbert smashes first home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Padres first baseman Jake Goebbert went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 6-3 loss to the Rockies Wednesday.

Goebbert's home run was his first of his 14-game stint with the big-league club, and he also has a triple to his credit. He owns a .333/.400/.519 line in 27 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lucas Duda's confidence at plate continues to grow


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Mets first baseman Lucas Duda went 3 for 3 with one RBI, two walks and two doubles during an 8-3 win Tuesday vs. Atlanta. He's batting .350 through seven July games, but Duda has been a much improved hitter since late May, batting .294 with a .412 on-base percentage, .603 slugging percentage and 1.015 OPS in his last 39 games.

"With Lucas, the more confidence he gets, the hotter he is going to be, because when he starts getting hits to all fields, he’s a dangerous hitter, because he can hit anybody," manager Terry Collins said, per the New York Post. "We saw that when he first got here.

"If he continues to swing the bat good, the middle of our lineup is a whole different animal."


Anthony Rizzo has three hits, homer in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo put together a three-hit game Tuesday, though it came in a 6-5 loss to the Reds.

Rizzo went 3 for 5, with a double and a solo home run in the game. He finished with one RBI and one run scored in the loss.

Rizzo is hitting .277/.383/.502 with 19 home runs, which ranks second in the National League. 


Mark Reynolds smacks pinch-hit home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Brewers infielder Mark Reynolds slugged a pinch-hit two-run home run in his team's 9-7 loss to the Phillies Tuesday.

Reynolds managed to collect six home runs in April and another six home runs in May, but he hadn't homered since June 2 before doing so Tuesday. He has hit .211/.307/.402 with 14 home runs and 33 RBI in 251 at-bats.


Lyle Overbay smashes grand slam Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Brewers first baseman Lyle Overbay went 1 for 5 with a grand slam in his team's 9-7 loss to the Phillies Tuesday.

The Brewers already had one home run in the first inning before Overbay came up with the bases loaded and drove the ball over the right-field wall to give his team a 5-1 lead. He now has one home run each in April, May, June and July. Overbay has hit .235/.316/.349 with four home runs and 25 RBI in 166 at-bats.


Kyle Parker added back to Rockies' roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Rockies outfielder Kyle Parker was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs Tuesday. Parker, who was hitless in six at-bats with four strikeouts in his first appearance with Colorado, is batting .262 with one home run, two doubles and four RBI in his last 10 games for Colorado Springs.

Joey Votto hits the DL with lingering quad injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) The Reds placed first baseman Joey Votto on the disabled list Tuesday, as a result of a lingering left quadriceps injury.

Votto has not played since Saturday as a result of the injury, so his stint on the DL will be backdated to July 6. This is the second time the injury has put him on the DL, as he spent nearly a month from mid-May to early June on the shelf as well. There is currently no timetable for his return.
