  • MIL Second Baseman #2
    Brice Turang went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two stolen bases on Tuesday, leading the Brewers to a 3-2 victory over the Twins.
    With a league-leading six thefts in just five contests to open the season, Turang has rapidly emerged as a dark horse candidate to lead the majors in stolen bases this season, with those odds increasing exponentially following Oakland’s decision to option speedster Esteury Ruiz to Triple-A earlier this week. The 24-year-old second baseman has notched three consecutive multi-hit performances and is batting .500 (7-for-14) with two runs scored and one RBI so far. Simply put, Turang should be rostered in all fantasy formats at this juncture.
  • ATL Shortstop #11
    Orlando Arcia went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and two RBI on Tuesday, leading the Braves to a 6-2 win over the Astros.
    Arcia took Astros starter Hunter Brown deep in the second inning for his first long ball of the season. He also picked up an additional EBI with a seventh-inning sacrifice fly, supplying all of the offense for Atlanta until they erupted for four runs in the ninth inning to put the contest away.
  • ATL Relief Pitcher #26
    Raisel Iglesias recorded a one-out save on Tuesday against the Astros.
    Iglesias was summoned to protect a four-run lead with the tying run in the on-deck circle and wound up retiring pinch-hitter Victory Caratini on five pitches to notch a relatively easy save. The 34-year-old stopper is up to four saves this season.
  • CLE Center Fielder #38
    Steven Kwan went 3-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored, including the eventual game-winner in a 10-7 extra-inning win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.
    All three of Kwan’s hits were singles, but the Guardians’ leadoff man is now slashing .372/.395/.474 on the season with 18 runs scored, two home runs, and one steal. Following the advice from his new coaching staff, Kwan has been more aggressive this season, with a career-high swing rate. He’s chasing out of the zone a little more but still making elite contact and posting a minuscule 4.7 percent swinging strike rate. He’s never going to be a power hitter, but being more aggressive and lifting the ball a little more has led to more barrels and impactful contact than he’s made so far in his career. With his new approach, he could be in for his best season yet.
  • ATL Relief Pitcher #40
    Reynaldo López struck out seven over six innings on Tuesday in the Astros.
    López generated 14 swinging strikes, including eight on his slider alone, and finished with a strong 32 percent CSW. The 30-year-old has been outstanding this season in his Braves debut, completing six frames in three consecutive starts to open the year. He’ll carry a microscopic 0.50 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 18/6 K/BB ratio across 18 innings (three starts) into a tasty home matchup on Monday against the floundering Marlins.
  • BOS First Baseman #36
    Triston Casas went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to the Guardians on Tuesday.
    Casas got off to a bit of a slow start, but he’s now homered in three of his last four games and is now slashing .258/.355/.530 on the season with five home runs and nine RBI. He continues to be a little too patient for his own good, with a nearly 20 percent called strike rate that is among the highest in the major leagues. We’d love to see Casas get a little more aggressive on the edges of the strike zone, but his elite eye at the plate is part of what makes him the hitter that he is. He should remain a great source of power and OBP in the middle of the Red Sox lineup.
  • HOU Relief Pitcher #58
    Hunter Brown allowed two runs over six innings on Tuesday in a loss to the Braves.
    After giving up nine runs on 11 hits in the opening frame of his previous start, Brown fared a little better this time around, needing just eight pitches to spin a scoreless first inning. He wasn’t able to solve Orlando Arcia, who delivered a solo homer and a run-scoring sacrifice fly to account for all of the damage against him in this one. He struck out three and also issued three walks. He’ll face the Cubs next week in his next outing.
  • CLE Shortstop #2
    Tyler Freeman went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
    Freeman greeted reliever Joely Rodriguez with a 106 mph shot that traveled 418 feet. He also doubled off the wall against Kenley Jansen in the ninth to score the game-tying run and force extra innings. Freeman continues to play every day in center field for the Guardians but is slashing .184/.241/.347 with two home runs, eight RBI, and two steals. He currently has a career-high barrel rate and flyball rate as he’s been more aggressive in the zone. He should get some BABIP luck, which could make him rosterable in deeper formats.
  • CLE Starting Pitcher #28
    Tanner Bibee allowed one run on five hits in five innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox.
    Allowing just one run is certainly good news, and he was able to post a solid 23 percent whiff rate and 28 percent CSW, but Bibee needed 92 pitches to get through five innings of work. He also struggled with his slider, throwing it in the zone just 32 percent of the time getting zero whiffs. The 25-year-old was able to lower his ERA to 4.82 but he still doesn’t look as effective as he did in his rookie season last year. He gets a two-start week next week with matchups against the Red Sox and Braves, which will certainly be an anxiety-filled week for his fantasy managers.
  • MIL Catcher #24
    William Contreras went 1-for-5 with two RBI in Tuesday’s loss to the Padres.
    The Brewers were held to just six hits and three runs on the night. Contreras accounted for two of those runs when his RBI single in the seventh scored Joey Wiemer and his sacrifice fly in the ninth again sent Wiemer home. Contreras is off to a hot start for the Brewers. In additon to his 12-game hitting streak, he’s also slashing .375/.461/.625 with four homers and 17 RBI.
  • SD Right Fielder #23
    Fernando Tatis Jr. went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a walk in Tuesday’s win over the Brewers.
    Tatis has tallied nine hits over his last six games and has walked another five times. He helped get things started early in the first inning with a single off of Wade Miley that kick started a four-run inning, and later came around to score on an RBI single by Luis Campusano in the seventh. The hits are starting to come in bunches for Tatis after he started off the year 3-for-16 in his first four games.
