Padres' Erick Aybar: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(12:59 pm ET) Aybar is not in the lineup Monday against the Cubs, Bob Scanlan of Fox Sports San Diego reports.

Aybar will take a seat for the second straight game as the Padres will go with Chase d'arnaud at shortstop again. There hasn't been any indication of injury, so the Padres may just be going with d'Arnaud again given his 2-for-4 showing in Sunday's contest.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Returns to lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(12:02 pm ET) Lindor is back in the lineup Monday against the Athletics.

Lindor was given a rare day off Sunday, but will be back in business Monday afternoon, batting second and manning shortstop.

Athletics' Adam Rosales: Sits Monday against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11:38 am ET) Rosales is out of the lineup Monday against the Indians.

Rosales last saw a day out of the lineup back on May 15, but since that day has slashed a miserable .108/.154/.135. He'll take a seat for the Memorial Day showdown, giving way to Chad Pinder at shortstop.

White Sox's Tim Anderson: Moves up to leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9:35 am ET) Anderson will start at shortstop and lead off for the White Sox in Monday's game against the Red Sox.

Anderson has served as the White Sox's leadoff hitter on five other occasions in May, but had been batting out of the No. 5 spot over each of the previous five games. The shortstop's move upward in the lineup is likely just a result of Leury Garcia getting the afternoon off, so it's not expected that manager Rick Renteria has any plans to permanently stop using Anderson in the heart of the order.

Mets' Asdrubal Cabrera: Drives in two Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8:50 am ET) Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

He's now gone 3-for-14 with two doubles since returning to the starting lineup. Cabrera's thumb seems fine, and fantasy GMs should feel safe in plugging him back into their active rosters again.

Marlins' J.T. Riddle: Hits third homer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8:26 am ET) Riddle went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, a double, three RBI and two runs during Sunday's win over Los Angeles.

The rookie made the most of his debut in the leadoff spot, and Riddle has now started 14 consecutive games at shortstop with Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique) on the disabled list. Riddle will probably lose playing time once Hechavarria is healthy, but the Marlins also have Martin Prado (hamstring) and Miguel Rojas (thumb) on the DL. Nine of Riddle's 17 hits have gone for extra bases, and he's drove in 17 runs over just 74 plate appearances. He's definitely worth a look in deeper settings, and he could carve out a serviceable long-term role if he continues to hit well.

Nationals' Trea Turner: Two hits Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8:11 am ET) Turner went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

He seems to be putting things together at the plate, and Turner now has a .303/.324/.485 slash line over his last eight games with a homer, two steals, four RBI and five runs. Despite his slow start, the 23-year-old still has plenty of time to turn his season around.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Scores twice against Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/28/2017) Andrus went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs during Sunday's win over Toronto.

The 28-year-old shortstop is in line to have a career year with six home runs, 27 RBI, 10 stolen bases, 27 runs and a .278/.321/.434 slash line. He's never provided this level of cross-category production, and Andrus has also been locked into the top third of the lineup in each of his past 24 games. While it wouldn't be surprising to see Andrus cool off going forward, especially in the power categories, he is also in the heart of his prime and a favorable fantasy setup.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Collects two hits, scores and drives in run
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/28/2017) Ahmed went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a run scored in Sunday's 9-5 loss in Milwaukee.

A day after breaking up Chase Anderson's no-hit bid, Ahmed added two more hits in Milwaukee. His RBI double in the eighth inning jumpstarted a four-run rally for the Diamondbacks, though the deficit proved to be too large. Ahmed has tallied a hit in 12 of his last 16 games, hitting .327 over that stretch.

Orioles' J.J. Hardy: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/28/2017) Hardy is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

With a .579 OPS on the season, Hardy has been one of the worst-performing regulars in baseball, but he's at least turned the corner recently with three two-hit performances in his last five starts. While he'll give way at shortstop to Paul Janish on Sunday, Hardy still seems fairly secure in an everyday role at the position.
