Yankees' Brett Gardner: Launches leadoff homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Gardner went 2-for-5 with a leadoff homer Sunday against the Mariners.

The leadoff blast off Seattle starter Yovani Gallardo allowed the outfielder to tie his career high in home runs with his 17th shot of the season. For the time being, Gardner appears to still be in the main outfield alignment with Clint Frazier and Aaron Judge despite his recent struggles at the plate, although things could change once Aaron Hicks (oblique) returns to the fray.


Astros' Norichika Aoki: Lunches three-run blast in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Aoki went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored during Sunday's loss to Baltimore.

Aoki isn't receiving consistent playing time, so his fantasy value is limited to deep settings. Additionally, this was just his second homer of the campaign, and his .280/.329/.376 slash line isn't providing much impact when he's in the lineup. Still, being attached to a high-end offense has appeal and will help Aoki modestly tilt the scales in the RBI and runs columns.


Tigers' Jim Adduci: Demoted to minors

(7/23/2017) Adduci was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Sunday, MLive.com reports.

The Canadian outfielder has seen just 47 at-bats with the Tigers this year, recording six extra-base hits, seven RBI and a .298 average. Adduci will head back down to the Mud Hens, where he's put up a similar average (.288) with three home runs and 15 RBI across 111 at-bats in 2017.


Athletics' Khris Davis: Squares up 28th bomb
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Davis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Sunday's win over the Mets.

At this stage of the game, there aren't many surprises with Davis. He's an elite slugger and is already up to 28 homers, 68 RBI and 60 runs. However, his .244 batting average and four stolen bases don't move the needle, so he's still best viewed as feast-or-famine asset. Albeit, a very good one.


Angels' Mike Trout: Slugs third home run in five games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Trout went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday against the Red Sox.

Trout has been absolutely tattooing the ball of late with three home runs in the past five games. The soon-to-be 26-year-old would likely be in serious contention for his third AL MVP if he hadn't missed 38 games due to a thumb injury, slashing .328/.450/.719 in 240 plate appearances.


White Sox's Adam Engel: Hits three-run double as leadoff man
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Engel went 1-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Royals.

Engel erased a three-run deficit with a bases-clearing double in the fifth, then came around to score later in the frame to give Chicago a temporary lead. The rookie center fielder hit out of the leadoff spot with lefty Travis Wood on the mound for Kansas City after batting ninth in each of his previous five games played.


Royals' Jorge Bonifacio: Goes deep again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Bonifacio went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk Sunday against the White Sox.

Bonifacio's 13th home run of the season was sandwiched between Whit Merrifield and Eric Hosmer long balls, as the top of the Royals order hit back-to-back-to-back jacks off Derek Holland to open the home half of the fourth inning. The rookie outfielder has homered in consecutive contests after going 18 games without hitting one.


Orioles' Austin Hays: Leaves game following foul off face
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Hays was removed from Sunday's game with Double-A Bowie after fouling a ball off his face, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The injury doesn't seem to be too severe at this time, as he's only expected to receive a few stitches to repair a cut above his eye. Consider Hays day-to-day for the time being. Prior to this incident, the top prospect was slashing .330/.355/.609 in 115 at-bats with the BaySox.


White Sox's Melky Cabrera: Removed with foot bruise
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Cabrera was taken out of Sunday's game against the Royals in the fifth inning due to a bruised left foot, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

The incident stemmed back to when the outfielder fouled a ball off his foot in the third inning, so given that he was able to play the field a couple times before being removed is certainly a good sign for him moving forward. Consider Garcia day-to-day for the time being. Alex Hanson took over for him in left field to finish out the contest.


Mariners' Jarrod Dyson: Sitting Sunday following collision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/23/2017) Dyson (toe) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees.

Dyson is still recovering from a jammed toe, which he sustained during a collision with the outfield wall Saturday. The Mariners are listing Dyson as day-to-day and will get by with Guillermo Heredia in center field until Dyson is cleared to rejoin the lineup.
