Description: Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez pitched well but took a no-decision Sunday against the Angels.
Insight: Martinez tossed six innings and allowed no runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two, however Anthony Bass gave up a two-run homer to Mike Trout in the seventh. Martinez is 2-0 with a 0.35 ERA.
Description: Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon was 4-for-5 in the, 6-2, victory over the Nationals on Sunday.
Insight: Unfortunately, Gordon didn't score or drive in any runs. He was also caught stealing for a league-ealding sixth time. Fantasy owners must still be happy with his start, though, as he is batting .390/.407/.463 with 10 runs, 10 RBI and eight steals.
Description: Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper hit a solo home run in the loss to the Marlins on Sunday.
Insight: The Nationals lineup continues to struggle without Anthony Rendon. Washington was 4-for-30 as a team on Sunday and scored just two runs. Harper was 1-for-4 with the bomb. He is hitting .270 with five home runs and 11 RBI in 63 at-bats.
Description: Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was 2-for-4 with an RBI-triple in the, 6-2, victory over the Nationals on Sunday.
Insight: Stanton is beginning to heat up as he is 5-for-7 with three extra-base hits, five runs and three RBI in the last two games. Stanton is hitting .275 with five home runs and 27 RBI in 69 at-bats this season.
Description: Rays starter Chris Archer threw seven shutout innings in the, 5-1, victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Insight: Archer is off to a really good start even though his record is just 3-2. His other numbers are 0.84 ERA, 0.74 WHIP, 37 strikeouts and six walks in 32 2/3 innings in five starts. It looks like Archer is ready to break out this season at 26 years old.
Description: Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli is not in Sunday's starting lineup.
Insight: Cervelli is just getting his normal day of rest being Sunday is a day game, and the Pirates fly to Chicago afterward. Cervelli is off to a solid start both offensively and defensively as he is hitting .265/.321/.347 in 49 at-bats this season. He threw out a runner trying to steal in the bottom of the ninth on Saturday in the, 2-1, victory over the Diamondbacks.
Description: The Dodgers have placed outfielder Yasiel Puig on the 15-day disabled list due to a left hamstring strain according to Roto World.
Insight: Puig initially injured the hamstring two weeks ago, and Puig finally couldn't deal with it anymore. He could be ready in less than a week, but the Dogdgers are playing it safe with the 15 days. Andre Either will start in the meantime.
Description: Tigers catcher Alex Avila is not in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Indians.
Insight: The Tigers have used backup catcher James McCann quite a bit this month as a way to keep Avila fresh. Overall, Avila owners should like that, but it means he is going to miss more games than usual.
Description: Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer did not throw his scheduled bullpen session on Sunday due to a sore thumb according to the Washington Post.
Insight: Scherzer was originally supposed to throw in the bullpen on Saturday, but he pushed it back to Sunday. After missing it again, Scherzer is in danger of missing his next start. He hasn't been ruled out yet, so consider him day-to-day and check back before his scheduled start on Tuesday.
Description: Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright is expected to miss the rest of the 2015 season with a left Achills injury according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
Insight: Wainwright has not undergone an MRI yet, but the team is already preparing for the worse. Wainwright suffered the injury on his first step out of the batter's box during an at-bat in the fifth inning on Saturday. This would be a huge loss for the Cardinals and fantasy owners.
Description: Royals right fielder Alex Gordon is just 6-for-34 versus White Sox pitcher John Danks.
Insight: Fantasy owners have to be disappointed with Gordon through the first three weeks of the season. He has sat out a lot of games and hasn't found his rhythm at the plate. Gordon is batting .239 with one home run in 46 at-bats.
Description: Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has a favorable matchup versus Cardinals starter Lance Lynn on Sunday.
Insight: Segura is 9-for-20 with two extra-base hits in his career against Lynn, so he should remain in all fantasy lineups. Segura has started 2015 very well, hitting .324 with one home run, eight runs and five RBI. Start him as long as he hits first or second in the order.
Description: Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista is not in the starting lineup versus the Rays on Sunday.
Insight: Fantasy owners might be better off because Bautista is just 2-for-24 in his career against Rays starter Chris Archer. Owners would still like Bautista to return soon. He hasn't played since Tuesday due to shoulder soreness.
Description: Rays center fielder Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup agaisnt the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Insight: Jennings left Saturday's game with a knee injury. It doesn't appear to be serious, but he will not start on Sunday. Brandon Guyer, Kevin Kiermaier and Steve Souza Jr. are the Rays outfielders on Sunday.
Description: Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is just 2-for-13 with a double in his career versus Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez.
Insight: It is going to be hard to sit Stanton, who was 3-for-3 with a home run versus Stephen Strasburg on Saturday, but Stanton does not have much success in his career against Gonzalez. Plan your lineup accordingly.
Description: Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler has a great chance to keep his recent hot streak going on Sunday against Indians starter Carlos Carrasco.
Insight: Kinsler is 4-for-8 in his last two games and is 5-for-16 (.313) in his career versus Carrasco. Three of those five hits are doubles. Kinsler is hitting .296 with nine RBI this season, but he is still waiting for his first home run.
Description: Twins second baseman Brian Dozier was 2-for-5 with a RBI-double and two runs in the, 8-5, victory over the Mariners on Saturday.
Insight: Dozier hit his double in the seventh to give the Twins some insurance runs late. Dozier hasn't been great to start 2015, so perhaps this game gets him going. He is hitting .215 with one home run and five RBI this season.
Description: Angels closer Huston Street picked up his league-leading seventh save of season on Saturday against the Rangers.
Insight: Street allowed a hit, but no other bases runners versus Texas. In seven appearances, Street is 7-for-7 in save chances and hasn't give up a run. He also has a 0.57 WHIP, eight strikeouts and two walks.
Description: Padres outfielder Justin Upton hit a pair of home runs in the, 11-8, loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.
Insight: Upton hit a two-run homer in the first and then a three-run bomb in the sixth to finish the day with five RBI. He was 2-for-3 with a walk too. Upton is hitting .303/.347/.606 with five home runs and 13 RBI this season.
Description: Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez hit a three-run homer in the Dodgers, 11-8, victory over the Padres on Saturday.
Insight: Gonzalez was 2-for-5 with three RBI and three runs scored. That was his seventh homer of the season. He is hitting .403/.459/.851 with 18 RBI too. If owners want to sell high on Gonzalez now would be the time, but it is tempted to just ride out this hot streak. He leads the National League in home runs and RBI and is second in average.
Description: Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-5 with a home run in the extra-inning loss to the Giants on Saturday.
Insight: Tulowitski hit a solo home run in the third inning to give Colorado a, 2-1, lead, but the Rockies had to comeback to tie the game in the ninth in order to force extra innings. San Francisco, however, won, 5-4, in the 10th. Tulowitzki is hitting .303/.309/.530 with two home runs and nine RBI this season.
Description: Pirates closer Mark Melancon looks a bit more like himself as he picked up his fifth save of the season on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks.
Insight: Melancon's velocity is still down, but he has picked up three straight saves since his blown save on Tuesday. He did allow a hit and a walk in the ninth on Saturday, but a caught stealing help Melancon hold the one-run lead. The numbers still look bad, 5.79 ERA and 1.50 WHIP, but hopefully the worse is behind him.
Description: Pirates starter A.J. Burnett pitched well again, but he is still searching for his first win in the 2015 regular season.
Insight: Burnett is likely pleased that his team at least won this time as they scored a run in the top of the ninth and held on, 2-1, versus the Diamondbacks, but Burnett still doesn't have a win this season despite his 1.80 ERA. He pitched seven innings and allowed one run on five hits, throwing just 88 pitches.
Description: Pirates second baseman Neil Walker was 2-for-4 with two doubles and both of the Pirates runs as Pittsburgh beat Arizoma, 2-1, on Saturday.
Insight: The Pittsburgh offense is really struggling to start the season, but the team has been able to win games. The Pirates fell behind, 1-0, on Saturday, but Walker scored in the fourth and ninth as Pittsburgh came back to win, 2-1. Walker scored on two-outs hits each time. He is hitting .273 with seven RBI but just one home run this season. The Pirates have won four straight and seven of the last nine.
Description: Brewers shortstop Jean Segura continued his hot start, going 3-for-4 with a run in the, 5-3, loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.
Insight: Segura had two singles and a double, which was his fourth of the season. He is batting .324 with one home run, five RBI and eight runs. Without Carlos Gomez in the lineup, Segura is leading off. It would be better if Jonathan Lucroy was still hitting behind him, but as long as Segura is hitting at the top of the lineup, he is fantasy relevant.
Description: Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday hit the game-winning home run as St. Louis held on to beat Milwaukee, 5-3, on Saturday.
Insight: Holliday hit a three-run homer in the seventh to put the Cardinals ahead, 5-0, but the Brewers responded with three runs in the eighth, so Holliday's homer proved to be the winner. It was his first homer of the season, but Holliday is hitting .358 with 10 RBI too, so he is off to a great start.
Description: Orioles outfielder David Lough had a pinch-hit walk off home run to lift Baltimore over Boston, 5-4, on Saturday.
Insight: Baltimore trailed, 4-3, heading into the bottom of the 10th when Adam Jones started the inning with a triple. Chris Davis hit a sacrifice fly that scored Jones to tie the game, and in the next at-bat, Lough hit the walk off. That is Lough's first homer of the season.
Description: Orioles starter Wei-Yen Chen allowed just two runs on four hits in eight innings but settled for a no decision versus the Red Sox on Saturday.
Insight: Chen only allowed the two runs on a two-run homer from Mike Napoli in the second inning. He also struck out five and walked one. Chen left with the lead, but the Red Sox rallied to tie the game in the ninth. Boston, however, also blew a save chance as Koji Uehara allowed two runs in the 10th, and Baltimore won, 5-4.
Description: Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright left Saturday's start with a left foot injury according to Roto World.
Insight: Wainwright suffered the injury on his first step out of the batter's box in the fifth inning. He needed help getting off the field. Wainwright had a shutout going into the fourth when he left. Stay tuned for updates.
Description: Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard hit a two-run homer in the, 5-2, loss to the Braves on Saturday.
Insight: Howard's homer came in the fourth inning to give Philadelphia a, 2-0, lead, but Atlanta scored the final five runs of the game. Howard went 1-for-3 and is hitting .189 with two home runs and six RBI this season. Not exactly fantasy relevant.
Description: Ble Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson had two hits in the loss to the Rays on Saturday.
Insight: Donaldson had an RBI-single to score Devin Travis in the first inning as Toronto took an early lead, but Tampa Bay answered in the bottom of the inning. The Blue Jays retook the lead in the seventh on Russell Martin's homer, but the Rays scored three runs in the eighth. Donaldson is hitting .352 with four home runs and 14 RBI this season.
Description: Rays third baseman Evan Longoria went 4-for-4 with a RBI-double in the, 4-2, victory over the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Insight: Longoria hit a RBI-double in the first to score Steven Souza Jr. Longoria also had three singles. He is hitting .271/.380/.441, but fantasy owners would like to see more power. Longoria has just one home run and four RBI.
Description: Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki broke the Japanese runs scored record on Saturday as he went 2-for-4 with a run versus the Nationals.
Insight: Suzuki scored on Adeiny Hechavarria's three-run homer in the eighth, which made it 1,310 runs in his major league career. Including his 658 runs in Japan, Ichiro has scored 1,968 times in professional base, which is more than any other Japanese player. At 41-year-old, though, he is hardly fantasy relevant. Suzuki is hitting .286 with one RBI and no homers in 42 at-bats.
Description: Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg did not pitch well again on Saturday versus the Marlins.
Insight: Strasburg pitched six innings and allowed four runs on eight hits. He pitched well in his last start versus the Phillies, but the outing before he allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings, so Strasburg has been inconsistent to start the year. He is 1-2 with a 4.88 ERA and 1.63 WHIP.
Description: Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was 3-for-3 with a double and home run in the, 8-0, victory over the Nationals on Saturday.
Insight: Stanton came into the game with three career home runs off Stephen Strasburg, so hopefully owners listened to our advice to keep Stanton in the lineup. Stanton didn't hit the homer until the eighth, so it wasn't against Strasburg, but owners will take a single and double off the Nationals right-hander. Stanton is hitting .262 with five home runs and 16 RBI this season.
Description: Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick was 2-for-2 with two walks and a run in the, 9-3, loss to the Astros on Saturday.
Insight: It could have been worse as Houston jumped up over Oakland, 8-0, to start the game. Reddick was the only Athletics batter who reached base twice, and he had two hits and reached four times. Redick is hitting.357 with one home run and seven RBI this season.
Description: Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia continues to be a shell of his former self.
Insight: Sabathia pitched well against the tough Detroit Tigers offense on Monday, giving fantasy owners some hope that maybe he could be a servicable option, but he allowed seven runs in five innings and struck out just two versus the Mets on Saturday. Sabathia tossed up three home runs to Lucas Duda, Eric Campbell and Kevin Plawecki. Sabathia is 0-4 with a 5.96 ERA in four starts this season.
Description: Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira was 3-for-4 with an RBI and run in the, 8-2, loss to the Mets on Saturday.
Insight: Teixeira had the only Yankees RBI of the day with a solo home run in the seventh. The team's other run came on a Jacoby Ellsbury's double play. Teixeira started the season very slowly, but he is 5-for-8 in the last two games with three home runs.
Description: Mets right-hander Matt Harvey won the battle of New York against Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia, pitching 8 2/3 innings and allowing just two runs on five hits in the, 8-2, victory on Saturday.
Insight: Harvey also struck out seven and walked two batters. His only real blemish was a solo home run from Mark Teixeira in the seventh. Harvey is 3-0 with a 3.04 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 31 strikeouts and three walks this season.
Description: Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino is heading to the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring strain according to Roto World.
Insight: Here we go again. Victorino spent much of last season on the DL and is going there just three weeks into the 2015 season. With Rusney Castillo also injured, Allen Craig and Daniel Nava will share time in right field.
