Jake Lamb
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Pounds out three hits Tuesday
Jake Lamb, 3B, ARI
11:45 AM
News: Lamb went 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Cardinals in 10 innings.

Lamb's power production has waned during June, but since he's maintained a .400 on-base percentage for the month, there's been little reason for fantasy owners to get too worked up. The third baseman is still on pace to surpass last season's career-high 29 home runs and has upped his batting average nearly 40 points from 2016.

Johan Camargo
Braves' Johan Camargo: Drives in two Tuesday
Johan Camargo, 3B, ATL
10:30 AM
News: Camargo went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

He's now slashing an impressive .353/.378/.500 over his last 10 games with seven RBI and six runs. If the Braves follow through on their plan to try Freddie Freeman at third base when he comes off the DL, Camargo could get bumped to the bench or even back to Triple-A Gwinnett, but at the moment he's doing everything he can to convince the club to leave him at the hot corner.

Ty Kelly
Phillies' Ty Kelly: Poor offensive showing in limited playing time
Ty Kelly, 3B, PHI
9:15 AM
News: Kelly is hitting .190 with six doubles and 11 strikeouts this season.

Philadelphia's utility man hasn't been of much use with the bat this season as he struggles to get his average above the Mendoza Line. His versatility on defense makes him viable to play almost anywhere on the field, but the lack of offensive production has been what's kept him from seeing his number called on more consistent occasions.

Maikel Franco
Phillies' Maikel Franco: Hits 10th homer in win over Seattle
Maikel Franco, 3B, PHI
2:01 AM
News: Franco went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

It was Franco's 10th home run of the season and third in his last nine games. Franco hasn't exactly been raking this month following talk of a possible demotion in late May, but his 8:5 BB:K over his last 15 games is encouraging.

Conor Gillaspie
Giants' Conor Gillaspie: Trip to DL imminent
Conor Gillaspie, 3B, SF
6/27/2017
News: Gillaspie will be placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with back issues, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Gillaspie has dealt with back issues at multiple different points this season, and it now appears his ailing back will force him onto the disabled list for the second time this season. It's still unclear how long he'll remain sidelined with the injury at this point, but the hope is that he'll be ready to go after the minimum 10-day stay. Jae-Gyun Hwang is expected to have his contract purchased from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move.

Jae-Gyun Hwang
Giants' Jae-Gyun Hwang: Expects to be called up Wednesday
Jae-Gyun Hwang, 3B, SF
6/27/2017
News: Hwang is expected to be called up by the Giants on Wednesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Hwang, who was brought over from the Korea Baseball Organization in January, has been performing admirably with Triple-A Sacramento this season, slashing .287/.333/.476 with seven home runs and 44 RBI over 68 games. He'll have a chance to contribute immediately with fellow third basemen Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) and Conor Gillaspie (back) sidelined due to injuries, but his stay on the roster is likely a temporary one. Nonetheless, with the Giants searching for answers at the plate, Hwang may be able to establish himself as a viable option for a long-term promotion.

Analysis: 

Justin Turner
Dodgers' Justin Turner: Gets day off Tuesday
Justin Turner, 3B, LAD
6/27/2017
News: Turner is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

It appears to be a routine day off for Turner, who has started five straight games for the Dodgers. Logan Forysthe will slide over to the hot corner in his absence, while Chase Utley draws the start at second base.

Analysis: 

Jedd Gyorko
Cardinals' Jedd Gyorko: Plates three in Monday's win
Jedd Gyorko, 3B, STL
6/27/2017
News: Gyorko went 2-for-3 with three RBI from a two-run home run and a run-scoring single while drawing a walk in Monday's 8-2 win over the Reds.

Gyorko now has hits in three straight and has driven in four runs overall in his last two contests. The veteran infielder has cooled off some since a red-hot April, but all three components of his current .298/.358/.519 line represent career bests, and he's well on pace to exceed the high-water mark of 63 RBI he compiled in his rookie 2013 season with the Padres.

Analysis: 

Eduardo Nunez
Giants' Eduardo Nunez: Could be activated Friday
Eduardo Nunez, 3B, SF
6/26/2017
News: Nunez (hamstring) may be activated as soon as he is eligible on Friday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports Friday.

An MRI on Nunez's hamstring found no structural damage, but the Giants didn't want to go without the extra infielder on their roster as they waited for the inflammation to go down. Look for him to be back in the lineup as the Giants begin a series in Pittsburgh against the Pirates on Friday.

Analysis: 

Jeimer Candelario
Cubs' Jeimer Candelario: Recalled from Triple-A
Jeimer Candelario, 3B, CHC
6/26/2017
News: Candelario was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Monday. He is starting at third base and batting sixth against the Nationals.

With Addison Russell dealing with a shoulder injury, Candelario was added to the Cubs' roster ahead of Monday's series opener with the Nationals to offer some extra infield depth. The 23-year-old was slashing .274/.366/.520 with Iowa before being promoted to the big-leagues. He could be headed back to Iowa once Russell is healthy enough to return.
