No need to look at Ryan Roberts
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (4/27/2013) With the exception of a glorious two-homer day against CC Sabathia, Rays second baseman Ryan Roberts has been a non-entity this season. Despite a .241 batting average and only four extra-base hits in 54 at-bats, Roberts has remained on our most-viewed players list in recent days.
Roberts' two home run game was Monday, so Fantasy owners are probably seeing him pop up as one of the top contributors over the last seven days. Unfortunately, he is 1 for 15 in four games since the home runs, so there is little reason to pick the veteran up.
Roberts had 19 home runs in 2011, but that is looking like an outlier in his career as he has just 24 home runs in 1,000 plate appearances otherwise. Fantasy owners should probably pay him no mind outside of AL-only formats.

The 32-year-old, who was batting just .233 after a game against Oakland on April 20, has gone 5 for 9 in his last two contests with three RBI and four runs scored.
