Astros' Carlos Beltran: Goes 4-for-5 against Twins
Carlos Beltran, DH, HOU
6:20 PM
News: Beltran went 4-for-5 with a three-run home run and three runs during Monday's win over Minnesota.

It was just the sixth home run and 18th RBI of the season for the veteran, and Beltran owns an underwhelming .253/.301/.424 slash line. It wouldn't be shocking if the 40-year-old outfielder began to pick it off offensively, but Father Time might have also finally caught up to Beltran. Nonetheless, Monday's huge game was encouraging.

Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Reaches base three times Monday
Mark Trumbo, DH, BAL
5:38 PM
News: Trumbo went 2-for-3 with two singles, a walk, an RBI and a run during Monday's win over the Yankees.

Trumbo entered Monday's game with a .317/.367/.505 slash line in May, and he only improved those marks with his solid showing against the Yankees. For the campaign, he's up to seven home runs, 24 RBI and 30 RBI and appears to have ironed out the kinks in his swing that caused him to stumble out of the gate in April (.548 OPS).

Brandon Moss
Royals' Brandon Moss: Takes seat Monday
Brandon Moss, DH, KC
2:43 PM
News: Moss is out of the lineup Monday against the Tigers, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Moss will hit the pine with the Royals matching up against a left-handed starter in Daniel Norris, allowing Jorge Soler to enter the lineup at DH. Moss should continue to handle the strong side of a platoon, but even in that capacity, he hasn't provided the sort of impact the Royals were expecting after signing him to a two-year deal in January. He's batting .157/.237/.382 over 114 plate appearances against right-handed pitching this season.

Ryon Healy
Athletics' Ryon Healy: Smacks two-run single Sunday
Ryon Healy, DH, OAK
1:30 AM
News: Healy went 1-for-3 with a two-run single and a walk in Sunday's 9-5 loss to the Yankees.

Healy opened the scoring on the day by roping a hit to left in the second that plated Khris Davis and Yonder Alonso. The slugging infielder has hit safely in 13 of the last 14 games and has now matched his April RBI total (10), with six of those runs having been driven in over the last five contests.

Kennys Vargas
Twins' Kennys Vargas: Wears golden sombrero Sunday
Kennys Vargas, DH, MIN
5/28/2017
News: Vargas went 0-for-8 with four strikeouts in Sunday's 8-6 loss to the Rays in 15 innings.

The ugly performance lowered Vargas' slash line to .258/.280/.483 in 93 plate appearances. The switch-hitting power bat has managed five home runs on the year but has fanned 22 times (23.7 percent strikeout rate) and is unlikely to carry a respectable average for his fantasy owners. He's also been much more effective against righties (.362 with all five dingers) than lefties (.087).

Corey Dickerson
Rays' Corey Dickerson: Notches four hits in extra-innings marathon
Corey Dickerson, DH, TB
5/28/2017
News: Dickerson went 4-for-8 with two runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's 8-6 win over the Twins in 15 innings.

The four-hit effort from the leadoff spot raised Dickerson's slash line to .337/.380/.608 on the season. The 28-year-old is in the midst of a breakout season during his second year in Tampa with 12 home runs and 24 RBI in 214 plate appearances. However, his abnormally high .393 BABIP and career-high 42.8 percent groundball rate scream regression. Dickerson could easily have a great season, but he's bound to tail off at some point and is a decent sell-high candidate.

Rickie Weeks
Rays' Rickie Weeks: Raps out pair of hits Saturday
Rickie Weeks, DH, TB
5/28/2017
News: Weeks went 2-for-2 with a walk in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Twins.

Weeks' bat has started to come alive in May following a miserable April in which he hit just .179. The veteran now has five multi-hit efforts during the month, upping his season average 54 points to .233 in the process. The 34-year-old's designated hitter role appears secure at present, and he's also able to fill in at first base when called upon.

Analysis: 

Albert Pujols
Angels' Albert Pujols: Receives day off Sunday
Albert Pujols, DH, LAA
5/28/2017
News: Pujols is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.

Pujols likely would be in the lineup for the series finale if the DH spot was available, but manager Mike Scioscia will give the former MVP a day off following back-to-back days in the field. Jefry Marte will check in at first base in place of Pujols.

Analysis: 

Victor Martinez
Tigers' Victor Martinez: Hits solo homer in ninth
Victor Martinez, DH, DET
5/28/2017
News: Martinez went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks during Saturday's win over the White Sox in the second game of their doubleheader.

This was just the fourth home run of the season for the designated hitter, and with an underwhelming .384 slugging percentage, Martinez hasn't provided much pop. The 38-year-old veteran is just a season removed from posting a .476 mark, and his 25 RBI are an admirable total at this stage. Staying patient with Martinez should pay off in the long run. He's locked into the heart of a dangerous lineup, after all.

Analysis: 

Shin-Soo Choo
Rangers' Shin-Soo Choo: Rips lead-off homer Saturday
Shin-Soo Choo, DH, TEX
5/27/2017
News: Choo went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Choo smashed his fifth homer of the season to lead off the game in a losing effort. With a .255/.364/.396 slash line, he's a low-upside fantasy option.
