Rays' Taylor Featherston: Goes deep for second time Wednesday
Taylor Featherston, SS, TB
3:02 PM
News: Featherston went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 8-3 win over the Reds.

Featherston is parlaying his current opportunity with the Rays into some decent production, as he's now slashing .273/.346/.591 and has hit safely in five of his last seven games. The 27-year-old's stint with the big-league club could be fairly lengthy one if he can continue offering serviceable production, as Matt Duffy (heel) remains without a clear timetable for return.

Andrelton Simmons
Angels' Andrelton Simmons: Nabs 13th steal Wednesday
Andrelton Simmons, SS, LAA
2:24 PM
News: Simmons went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and his 13th stolen base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

The 27-year-old hasn't let his new placement in the heart of the order limit his ability to stay active on the basepaths. In fact, he has taken three bases over the three games he has batted fifth in. Simmons continues to be a solid contributor at the shortstop position, giving him mixed-league value for the first time since 2013 when he exploded for 17 home runs.

Jorge Polanco
Twins' Jorge Polanco: Back in lineup Thursday
Jorge Polanco, SS, MIN
11:45 AM
News: Polanco is batting seventh and playing shortstop Thursday against the White Sox, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

He's back in after taking a breather for two days. Polanco is batting just .242/.294/.338 in 219 plate appearances and will continue piecing together at-bats between shortstop and third base.

Tim Anderson
White Sox's Tim Anderson: Leading off Thursday
Tim Anderson, SS, CHW
11:09 AM
News: Anderson is leading off and playing shortstop Thursday against the Twins, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Anderson will stare down Twins left-hander Nik Turley, so Chicago moved him up in the lineup to get a platoon advantage. This makes him a more valuable start today for the likelihood of an extra plate appearance.

Analysis: 

Jean Segura
Mariners' Jean Segura: Hits bloop single in return to lineup
Jean Segura, SS, SEA
10:38 AM
News: Segura (ankle) went 1-for-3 with a walk in his return from the disabled list Wednesday against Detroit.

After missing the last 18 games with an ankle injury, there seemed to be no lingering effects as the 27-year-old ran around the bases to score twice in the late innings. Segura, who is batting .341 on the year, will move back into his everyday role at shortstop, where he will look to continue his hot season at the plate.

Carlos Correa
Astros' Carlos Correa: Provides insurance with 14th homer
Carlos Correa, SS, HOU
12:27 AM
News: Correa went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and a pair of runs in Wednesday's win over the A's.

While Correa has yet to even attempt a stolen base this year after breaking double digits in each of the past two seasons, he's doing his finest work yet at the plate. Every component of his .301/.378/.521 slash line represents a career high, and with 14 homers already, he's on pace to blast past his career-best 22 from two seasons ago.

Analysis: 

Gleyber Torres
Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Undergoes successful surgery
Gleyber Torres, SS, NYY
6/21/2017
News: Torres (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Wednesday.

Torres injured himself sliding headfirst into home plate in a Triple-A game last week. After a successful surgery, the Yankees' top prospect -- who was lining up to make his MLB debut later in the season -- will now look to heal up before spring training rolls around next year. He compiled a .309/.406/.457 slash in 96 plate appearances with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season after being promoted from Double-A Trenton in late May.

Analysis: 

Ehire Adrianza
Twins' Ehire Adrianza: Runs wild Wednesday
Ehire Adrianza, SS, MIN
6/21/2017
News: Adrianza went 1-for-4 with three steals and an RBI against the White Sox on Wednesday.

It's disappointing that he didn't score any runs despite his fine work on the bases, which doubled Adrianza's steal total for the season. As an unremarkable hitter and relatively little-used utility infielder, he's not going to find a place on many fantasy rosters.

Analysis: 

Marcus Semien
Athletics' Marcus Semien: Rehab to be extensive
Marcus Semien, SS, OAK
6/21/2017
News: Semien's (wrist) rehab assignment will be extensive according to manager Bob Melvin, Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Melvin made it a point to emphasize that Semien's assignment, which is scheduled to begin Friday at High-A Stockton, will not just be a matter of a few games, instead remarking it will be "almost like spring training". The slugging shortstop has been sidelined since April 14 with his injury and has logged just 46 plate appearances in 2017.

Analysis: 

Francisco Lindor
Indians' Francisco Lindor: Homers in win over Orioles
Francisco Lindor, SS, CLE
6/21/2017
News: Lindor went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBI during Wednesday's win over Baltimore.

Now up to 14 homers, 33 RBI and 42 runs with a .256/.319/.491 slash line, Lindor is turning in another excellent fantasy campaign. His .251 BABIP is well below the .333 mark he posted through his first two seasons, so it's likely that his .256 batting average has positive regression ahead. Continue to view Lindor as a set-and-forget asset in all settings.
