Kurt Suzuki on 9-game hitting streak
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/14) Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki enters Tuesday's game at the Angels on a nine-game hitting streak. He's 14 for 33 (.424) with three doubles and three RBI during the streak and is batting .321 overall.

In Sunday's win over the White Sox, Suzuki went 3 for 4 with a double.

Regular at-bats not enough for Kurt Suzuki to maintain value
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(6/9/14) Coming into the season, Kurt Suzuki looked like he would have to battle Josmil Pinto for playing time, but with 43 starts in 61 games, he's practically got the Twins' starting gig to himself. And with a .297 batting average and top 12 standing among catchers in standard Head-to-Head and Rotisserie formats, he would appear to be a legitimate option in two-catcher leagues, even with some regression.

Fortunately for Suzuki, he's not getting a real challenge from Pinto, who has hit for power, but has struck and popped out on his way to a .222 batting average. Pinto has also failed to throw out a runner in 16 tries, so you can't blame Twins manager Ron Gardenhire for penciling Suzuki into his lineup on a regular basis.

As I noted in a recent blog post, Suzuki has improved his plate discipline, but his batting average and overall Fantasy value look due to plunge. Despite the lack of a challenge to his playing time, Suzuki doesn't project to produce enough going forward to be worth starting outside of deep leagues. If you're currently relying on Suzuki in a mixed league, you should consider replacing him with either Mike Zunino or John Jaso, both of whom are still available in more than 60 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com.

Kurt Suzuki open to extension
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/29/14) Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki is open to signing an extension with the club, according to the St. Paul Pioneer-Press.

Suzuki signed a one-year deal with the team last offseason, and appears to be enjoying his time in Minnesota. Despite his willingness to sign, a source close to the situation said it was "too early" for the team to make this type of decision. Suzuki has performed well, hitting .291/.360/.397 in 151 at-bats.
