Eduardo Nunez
Giants' Eduardo Nunez: Viewed as option in left field
Eduardo Nunez, 3B, SF
4/22/2017
News: Nunez may play left field in the coming days, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The Giants outfield has been hit by a handful of injuries recently. Jarrett Parker is out with a broken clavicle and Denard Span had to leave Saturday's game with a shoulder injury. Span's departure forced the Giants to shuffle their lineup and resulted in Nunez being sent to right field. Although Span isn't expected to miss much time, Nunez may be used in left field until Span is back. While it's not his primary position, Nunez does have experience playing the outfield, as he occasionally played there during his tenure with the Yankees and Twins.

David Freese
Pirates' David Freese: Blasts third homer of season
David Freese, 3B, PIT
4/22/2017
News: Freese with 1-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Yankees.

Freese's third bomb of the season extended the Pirates a lead in the fourth inning of a game they'd go on to lose. He's been hitting very well throughout the month of April, as evidenced by his .333 batting average, and fantasy owners should consider using him in lineups until an inevitable slump comes along.

Eugenio Suarez
Reds' Eugenio Suarez: Launches pair of homers
Eugenio Suarez, 3B, CIN
4/22/2017
News: Suarez went 3-for-5 with two solo homers in the Reds 12-8 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.

Suarez blasted his fourth and fifth homers of the campaign, but it wasn't enough to lift his team to a victory. In addition to his fast start with his power stroke, he's also hitting .367, and it's entirely possible that the 25-year-old is ready to reward fantasy owners with a breakout season.

Matt Carpenter
Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Could see time at third base
Matt Carpenter, 3B, STL
4/22/2017
News: Carpenter is one of the players manager Mike Matheny is considering for occasional starts at third base in the wake of Jhonny Peralta (upper respiratory illness) heading to the disabled list, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "We're not ruling that out as an option," said Matheny.

The former third baseman has been taking grounders at third in the last few days in anticipation, although he continues to draw starts at first base. Occasional deployment of Carpenter at the hot corner would presumably shift Jedd Gyorko to first or give fellow left-handed bat Matt Adams a chance for extra playing time.

Jose Reyes
Mets' Jose Reyes: Not in Saturday's lineup
Jose Reyes, 3B, NYM
4/22/2017
News: Reyes is not in the Mets' lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

It's a routine day off for Reyes, who is mired in the midst of a 2-for-22 slump over the last week. T.J. Rivera takes over at third base, and could be line for further playing opportunities unless the veteran can reverse his miserable start to the season.

Analysis: 

Jake Lamb
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Drives in two runs Friday
Jake Lamb, 3B, ARI
4/22/2017
News: Lamb went 1-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and a run scored in Friday's 13-5 win over the Dodgers.

The matchup with Dodgers southpaw Alex Wood wasn't a favorable one for the lefty-hitting Lamb, but he hung tough during a critical fifth-inning at-bat and singled home what at the time was the go-ahead run. Despite his success Friday, Lamb still remains a liability against left-handed pitching, but his utter destruction of right-handers has allowed him to maintain a .297 average and .378 on-base percentage so far this season.

Analysis: 

Tommy La Stella
Cubs' Tommy La Stella: Activated and sent down
Tommy La Stella, 3B, CHC
4/22/2017
News: La Stella was activated from the bereavement list Saturday and optioned to Triple-A Iowa.

There simply hasn't been a pressing need for La Stella this season -- he has yet to make a start and remains buried on the Cubs' infield depth chart -- so the team will continue carrying an extra bullpen arm. The 28-year-old should get more opportunities for playing time on the farm and remains a top option in the event of an injury.

Analysis: 

Adonis Garcia
Braves' Adonis Garcia: Pops second homer Friday
Adonis Garcia, 3B, ATL
4/22/2017
News: Garcia went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

The homer, Garcia's second of the season, came off Phillies closer-for-the-day Hector Neris to lead off the ninth inning and cut the Braves' deficit to 4-3, but the rest of the lineup couldn't complete the comeback. The 31-year-old third baseman has had a slow start to the season, slashing .197/.234/.311 through 16 games, but he's picked things up in the last week, hitting .269 (7-for-26) with both his home runs.

Analysis: 

Wilmer Flores
Mets' Wilmer Flores: Placed on DL
Wilmer Flores, 3B, NYM
4/22/2017
News: Flores (knee) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday, Daniel Popper of the New York Daily News reports.

T.J. Rivera was summoned from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move. Flores is receiving treatment for an infection in his knee, and as yet there's no indication he'll need to miss any more than the minimum amount of time.

Analysis: 

Javier Baez
Cubs' Javier Baez: Smashes first homer of season
Javier Baez, 3B, CHC
4/21/2017
News: Baez went 2-for-4 with a double, and a solo homer Friday against the Reds.

Baez's first homer of 2017 drew the Cubs within a run of the Reds in the fifth inning of a game they'd eventually win in extra innings. Although he got the season off to a slow start, he's now collected hits in six of his last seven games, and he's appearing to heat up, and fantasy owners who may have left him on the bench recently, will likely want to get him right back into their lineups.
