Description: Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin appears to have escaped serious injury when he dove for a line drive and rolled his wrist.

Insight: A .365 batting average against "King Felix" is like a .500 batting average against a "normal pitcher." The problem is that if he doesn't hit it out of the park, who will knock him in as the remainder of the roster includes no one batting more than .215 against the ace right-hander.
Carlos Gomez, CF, MIL5/4/2015 10:01:00 AM
Description: Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez, just off the disabled list on Saturday, is a career .353 hitter versus Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.

Carlos Gomez, CF, MIL5/2/2015 11:49:00 AM
Description: Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez has been activated from the disabled list on Saturday.
Insight: Gomez had a small tear in his hamstring. He likely won't steal bases for a while, but he's still good enough to start on all fantasy teams. Off to a slow start, Gomez should still be re-installed onto your lineup.
Adam Jones, CF, BAL5/2/2015 10:35:00 AM
Description: Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is a career .071 hitter (1-for-14) against Rays ace right-hander Chris Archer.
Insight: Jones is off to a great start, batting .380 with five homers and 19 RBI, but he doesn't hit Archer well and the young righty hasn't given up an earned run in his last four starts. Doesn't sound like a recipe for success, so avoid Jones on Saturday.
