Logan Forsythe
Dodgers' Logan Forsythe: To return Friday
Logan Forsythe, 2B, LAD

News: Forsythe (toe) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday or Thursday and expects to be activated Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Forsythe was placed on the disabled list on April 19 with a fractured toe on his right foot. His rehab has progressed smoothly and assuming everything goes well in his minor-league rehab game, he's slated to return for the start of the series against the Padres on Friday. The second baseman was hitting .295 prior to his injury.

Brandon Phillips
Braves' Brandon Phillips: Sitting out series finale Sunday
Brandon Phillips, 2B, ATL
9:31 AM
News: Phillips will not be in the starting lineup Sunday against the Brewers, The Associated Press reports.

After missing two games with a groin injury, Phillips returned to the lineup Saturday, and he also extended hit hitting streak to 12 games. However, manager Brian Snitker said Phillips would sit out Sunday's game and return to the lineup Monday against the Mets. The veteran second baseman is up to 10 runs, two home runs, nine RBI, five stolen bases and a .347/.380/.493 slash line.

Dustin Pedroia
Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Hitting out of six-hole
Dustin Pedroia, 2B, BOS
9:19 AM
News: Pedroia went 3-for-4 in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Cubs.

Pedroia is 5-of-7 with a walk and a run scored since being dropped to the sixth spot in the batting order. It really doesn't matter where Pedroia bats, he'll rake out of any spot in the order.

Jed Lowrie
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Smacks solo homer against Astros
Jed Lowrie, 2B, OAK
8:30 AM
News: Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Saturday's win over Houston.

While it was just the second home run and fifth RBI of the campaign for the veteran, Lowrie's .306/.368/.459 slash line highlights his serviceable start. He's been batting second or third for most of the season, which helps his fantasy floor, and Lowrie has already scored 13 runs. In his age-33 campaign, Lowrie's upside is capped, though, and especially since he's only played over 100 games twice during his 10-year career.

Analysis: 

Jose Altuve
Astros' Jose Altuve: Responsible for offense in Saturday's loss
Jose Altuve, 2B, HOU
7:33 AM
News: Altuve went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Athletics.

Altuve's eighth-inning homer, his third of the season, made the game interesting but the Astros didn't have the comeback bats working Saturday. After sitting out a couple of games due to a shoulder injury, Altuve is back to full strength, hitting third in Houston's order.

Brandon Drury
Diamondbacks' Brandon Drury: Cracks first homer of season Saturday
Brandon Drury, 2B, ARI
4/29/2017
News: Drury went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Rockies.

The 24-year-old has been a high-average hitter thus far, but he finally managed to send one over the fence Saturday when Rockies starter Tyler Anderson let a 1-1 changeup get a little too much of the plate. Saturday's performance brings Drury's OPS up to .802, which is 15 points up from last season's final tally.

Jose Ramirez
Indians' Jose Ramirez: Ups RBI count to 21
Jose Ramirez, 2B, CLE
4/29/2017
News: Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a two-run double during Saturday's win over Seattle.

The two-RBI showing has Ramirez just a single tally back of the American League lead, and alongside his six home runs and .333/.388/.609 slash line, it's been a monster start for the 24-year-old. He's stolen just two bases in four attempts, and while he may fall short of last season's 22 stolen bases, Ramirez's ability to tilt the scales across all five rotisserie categories is extremely valuable. His eligibility at multiple position is another significant fantasy boost.

Analysis: 

Rougned Odor
Rangers' Rougned Odor: Jacks two-run blast in Saturday's win
Rougned Odor, 2B, TEX
4/29/2017
News: Odor blasted his fourth home run of the season to power the Rangers to a 6-3 victory over the Angels on Saturday.

The young second baseman dealt the final blow in a rough fifth inning for Angels starter Jesse Chavez, belting a 1-2 offering into the right-field bleachers. This is a step in the right direction for Odor, as he had been batting just .154 over the past week prior to Saturday night's contest, although his OPS still sits at a relatively disappointing .618 mark.

Analysis: 

Ben Zobrist
Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Hits ninth-inning homer
Ben Zobrist, 2B, CHC
4/29/2017
News: Zobrist went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer in the ninth inning of Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

It was Zobrist's third home run of the season, and it provided two insurance runs for the Cubs. The veteran is off to an underwhelming start with a .214/.329/.386 slash line, but hitting in the middle of a potent lineup has helped his counting stats, as Zobrist has 12 runs and 11 RBI despite registering just 15 hits this season.

Analysis: 

Robinson Cano
Mariners' Robinson Cano: Smacks fourth homer Friday
Robinson Cano, 2B, SEA
4/29/2017
News: Cano went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 3-1 win over the Indians on Friday.

Cano's .253/.321/.432 line is still considerably under his typical level of production, but Friday's homer extended what has been an improved stretch at the plate for the veteran. He's now hit safely in five of his last six games with two round-trippers and five RBI over that stretch. The 34-year-old has likely been a bit on the unlucky side with a .256 BABIP thus far, as his 86 percent contact rate is right in line with his usual standards, while his walk rate has actually seen a nice bump up to 9.4 percent.
