4/16/2014 Brandon Belt, 1B (SF) Belt had three hits Tuesday.

Analysis: Belt is off to a strong start with a .919 OPS.
4/16/2014 Tim Lincecum, P (SF) Lincecum allowed one run in five innings Tuesday.

Analysis: Lincecum threw 93 pitches and owns a 7.20 ERA so "The Freak" isn't scoring you many fantasy points at this rate.
4/16/2014 Josh Beckett, P (LAD) Beckett pitched five scoreless innings Tuesday.

Analysis: Beckett walked five so that's a concern heading into Sunday's matchup with the D-Backs.
4/16/2014 David Wright, 3B (NYM) Wright went 2 for 5 on Tuesday.

Analysis: Wright is 9 for 31 during a seven-game hitting streak.
4/16/2014 Daniel Murphy, 2B (NYM) Murphy went 2 for 5 with two runs scored Tuesday.

Analysis: Murphy is 4 for 9 in the series.
4/16/2014 Kirk Nieuwenhuis, CF (NYM) Nieuwenhuis had three hits, three RBIs and made a diving catch in center field to lead New York to a 9-0 rout of the struggling Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

Analysis: Nieuwenhuis was called up from the minors after Juan Lagares went on the disabled list and may be worth having on your roster of fantasy players. "Hopefully this is his chance to come up and produce," Mets manager Terry Collins said.
4/16/2014 Eric Young, LF (NYM) Young went 3 for 5 with two runs scored Tuesday.

Analysis: Young also drove in two runs and is 5 for 8 in the series.
4/16/2014 Marco Estrada, P (Mil) Estrada suffered his first fantasy loss Tuesday.

Analysis: Estrada took the loss after allowing three runs over six innings and will face the Bucs in his next outing.
4/16/2014 Shelby Miller, P (StL) Miller earned his first fantasy win Tuesday. He struck out seven and allowed three hits over six innings.

Analysis: Miller routinely fired fastballs clocked into the mid-90s past hitters before turning the game over to the bullpen in the seventh. He bounced back after starting the year with two losses and a 6.35 ERA in his first two starts. He should face the Nats in his next one.
4/16/2014 Jhonny Peralta, SS (StL) Peralta was 2 for 4 with a two-run bomb Tuesday.

Analysis: Peralta has six hits in his last 12 ABs.

Analysis: Molina is 12 for 27 with eight runs scored in a seven-game hit streak.
4/16/2014 Gerrit Cole, P (Pit) Cole suffered his first fantasy loss Tuesday.

Analysis: Cole had won his last six starts but allowed five runs in six innings and will face the Brewers in his next outing.
4/16/2014 Mike Leake, P (Cin) Leake enjoyed an amazing fantasy night Tuesday.

Analysis: Leake gave up three runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings to earn his second win. He also doubled and hit a two-run homer. He's not just another pitcher trying to get in a few swings.
4/16/2014 Brandon Phillips, 2B (Cin) Phillips is 3 for 9 in the first two games of a series vs. the Bucs.

Analysis: Phillips has failed to homer in nine straight games so that's a big negative.
4/16/2014 Devin Mesoraco, C (Cin) Mesoraco is 4 for 8 in the first two games of a series vs. the Bucs.

Analysis: Mesoraco is a rising fantasy star who is 11 for 22 with nine RBIs this year. One fun fact about the catcher is that he hails from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania - the place known for the famous groundhog that predicts the weather.
4/16/2014 Todd Frazier, 3B (Cin) Frazier is 3 for 7 with two HRs in the first two games of a series vs. the Bucs.

Analysis: Frazier has driven in four runs in the series that ends Wednesday.
4/16/2014 Joey Votto, 1B (Cin) Votto is 5 for 7 with two walks in the first two games of a series vs. the Bucs.

Analysis: Votto knows how to get on base and slug the baseball, as seen by his 1.014 OPS.
4/16/2014 Starling Marte, LF (Pit) Marte is 2 for 9 with six strikeouts in the first two games of a series vs. the Reds.

Analysis: Marte has struck out 23 times - one behind former Pirate Garrett Jones for the highest total in the majors.
4/16/2014 Gaby Sanchez, 1B (Pit) Sanchez is 4 for 8 with two homers in the first two games of a series vs. the Reds.

Analysis: Sanchez is not known for power but a 1.064 OPS indicates that his time may be now. Let's see if he can keep it up.
4/16/2014 Neil Walker, 2B (Pit) Walker is 5 for 9 with three homers in the first two games of a series vs. the Reds.

Analysis: Walker is starting to tear the cover off the baseball. His OPS is .892.
