Twins 2B Brian Dozier cracks two home runs on Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Twins second baseman Brian Dozier went 2 for 5 at the plate in Minnesota's 8-1 win over the White Sox on Sunday.
Dozie got things going in the first when he smacked a leadoff home run off of Jose Quintana. Then in the seventh, Dozier did it again, blasting a three-run shot off of Scott Carroll over the left center field wall, his ninth of the season.
"He kinda started it and then finished it off today," manager Paul Molitor said to MLB.com. "He got the first one and then the last three. And in between we had a really nice inning."
Dozier is now hitting .253 with 24 RBI in 166 at-bats this season.

Twins 2B Brian Dozier HRs, knocks go-ahead sac fly in Friday's win
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Second baseman Brian Dozier delivered a game-tying homer in the third inning and added a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the seventh to help lift the Twins over the Rays on Friday.|
"You don't really think about it," Dozier said about the home run. "It just came in a big situation to tie the game up."
|2014 summary: Brian Dozier emerged from obscurity to be a useful Fantasy option in 2013, but he became even more relevant last season. In increasing his walk rate and his stolen base attempts, Dozier elevated himself among the elite at second base, as he finished third in Fantasy points and fifth in Rotisserie value at his position. Dozier's tendency to pop out keeps him from delivering a high batting average, and his .242 mark from last year was just one point above his career average. In every other regard, Dozier was a Fantasy stud among middle infielders, hitting 23 home runs, scoring 112 runs, driving in 71 runs and stealing 21 bases.|
Playing time status: Dozier tied for the sixth-highest total of plate appearances in the majors, and as long as he remains at or near the top of the Twins' batting order, he should continue to amass plate appearances -- and his counting stats.
2015 outlook: Because Dozier's performance two seasons ago seemingly came out of nowhere, he had some skeptics heading into last season. Having built on that initial success, it is safe to view Dozier as a top five second basemen in this season's drafts, making him an early-round option.
