Mark Reynolds
Rockies' Mark Reynolds: Drives in two runs
Mark Reynolds, 1B, COL

News: Reynolds went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a strikeout against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The power-hitting first baseman has hit an impressive .318 during the season, but he's not likely to sustain that number considering his previous career high of .279 came in 2007. However, he remains Colorado's most dangerous hitter, and he seems to have sacrificed a bit of power for more contact with only two home runs in 2016.

Sean Rodriguez
Pirates' Sean Rodriguez: Hits fifth homer of season
Sean Rodriguez, 1B, PIT
5/25/2016
News: Rodriguez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old infielder has been a non-factor in Pittsburgh's offense of late, and he recorded his first extra-base hit and first RBI since May 1. However, Rodriguez has reached base in five of the last 10 games.

Brandon Belt
Giants' Brandon Belt: Suffers mild ankle sprain
Brandon Belt, 1B, SF
5/25/2016
News: Belt suffered a mild ankle sprain in Wednesday's matchup with the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of the San Francisco CSN reports.

Belt injured his ankle sliding into second base, but appears to have dodged a bullet. While it looked potentially serious, the sprain is fortunately mild. He was 0-for-3 at the time of his exit. The Giants have Thursday off, so Belt will have some extra time to heal up, but his status for Friday is certainly up in the air.

Brock Stassi
Phillies' Brock Stassi: Sees decline in performance
Brock Stassi, 1B, PHI
5/25/2016
News: Stassi has a .227 batting average with eight doubles after playing in 33 games at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

After a strong first month of play at the Triple-A level, Stassi has experienced some struggles in the month of May. He's 5-for-30 in his last 10 games and his slugging percentage currently sits at .340, down from the .470 he posted at Double-A Reading in 2015. However, with Tommy Joseph's recent call-up to Philadelphia, Stassi will have more opportunities to adjust to Triple-A ball and rediscover the power in his bat.

Nick Ramirez
Brewers' Nick Ramirez: Continues improving in 2016
Nick Ramirez, 1B, MIL
5/25/2016
News: Ramirez has a .253/.324/.462 line after playing in 34 games at Double-A Biloxi.

The start of the 2016 campaign marked Ramirez's third straight season playing at the Double-A level. In that time, he's reduced his number of strikeouts and steadily increased his batting average from .231. Even though his game has gotten better, the 26 year-old lefty will likely have to continue waiting for the opportunity to test his skills at Triple-A Colorado Springs. Colorado Springs' roster currently has two talented first basemen in Jake Elmore and Andy Wilkins, who are posting batting averages of .329 and .254 respectively.

Wil Myers
Padres' Wil Myers: Not in Wednesday's starting lineup
Wil Myers, 1B, SD
5/25/2016
News: Myers is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.

As expected, Myers will sit out of the series finale in order to get a little extra rest for his ailing forearm. With the team's off day Thursday, though, there's a decent chance that the 25-year-old first baseman could return to the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Diamondbacks. For Wednesday, however, Brett Wallace will take over at first base and bat fifth in place of Myers.

Rhys Hoskins
Phillies' Rhys Hoskins: Hits a grand slam Tuesday
Rhys Hoskins, 1B, PHI
5/25/2016
News: Hoskins went 1-for-4 with a grand slam home run for Double-A Reading on Tuesday.

Hoskins is 13-for-38 with two home runs over his last 10 games raising his batting average to .263. He has eight home runs in 42 games this season, putting him on pace to exceed his 17 homers from last season. He is also on pace to strike out a lot more than last season as well. His strikeout rate has jumped nearly 10 percent this year.

Ryan Zimmerman
Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Homers against Mets
Ryan Zimmerman, 1B, WAS
5/25/2016
News: Zimmerman went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Tuesday against the Mets.

Despite the home run, Zimmerman's .418 slugging percentage is still a career low. The 31-year-old slugger isn't all he used to be, but he still holds value due in part to his placement in the lineup behind potential MVP candidates Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy. If the veteran somehow managed to raise his game back to the level he exhibited in prior seasons, the heart of Washington's lineup would become downright unfair to opposing pitchers.

Analysis: 

Tommy Joseph
Phillies' Tommy Joseph: Drives in Philly's only run
Tommy Joseph, 1B, PHI
5/24/2016
News: Joseph went 1-for-3 with a RBI on Tuesday against the Tigers.

The 24-year-old hit safely for the second straight game after going 0-for-6 during the weekend. Joseph has been pretty streaky so far this season, but at least he managed to plate a run for the second straight game, so he's been finding ways to produce offense for Philadelphia.

Analysis: 

Miguel Rojas
Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Two-run single helps Marlins to Monday win
Miguel Rojas, 1B, MIA
5/24/2016
News: Rojas plated a pair of RBI as part of a 3-for-4 effort during Monday's win over the Rays.

Rojas also scored a pair of runs on the evening while making the start at second base for the Marlins. Batting .311/.360/.378 on the season, Rojas is sharing time with Derek Dietrich at second while Dee Gordon continues to serve a suspension. He's in the lineup against most left-handed starters, but offers very little in terms of power or speed for fantasy owners.
