Carlos Beltran, RF, NYY4/14/2014 9:21:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran finished the game at first base after Francisco Cervelli injured a hamstring.
Insight: Beltran had never played there before and we doubt he'll get enough time to be position eligible. He's off to a solid start, batting .311 with three homers and eight RBI.
Jason Heyward, RF, ATL4/13/2014 8:27:00 PM
Description: Braves RF Jason Heyward went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, one RBI, three runs and a steal Sunday against the Nationals.
Insight: Heyward is off to a slow start for the second straight year, though he already has three steals in 12 games after swiping just two in 2013. The 24-year-old had 27 homers and 21 steals in 2012.
Jay Bruce, RF, CIN4/13/2014 7:35:00 PM

David Murphy, RF, CLEHot4/12/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Indians right fielder David Murphy (2-5) collected four RBI Saturday in a 12-6 victory over the White Sox.
Insight: David Murphy the power-hitter? So far the 32-year-old is on pace for 27 jacks and 135 RBI. His career-high is only 74 RBI so fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited. We'll see if Murphy can stay hot Sunday in the series finale.
Jayson Werth, RF, WAS4/12/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Washington right fielder Jayson Werth missed Saturday's game because of a tight groin. SOURCE: Mark Zuckerman, Comcast Sportsnet Mid-Atlantic
Insight: Hopefully you got him out of your lineup in time. Werth has delivered seven RBI during his five-game hitting streak. Consider him questionable for tomorrow afternoon's series finale.
Torii Hunter, RF, DET4/12/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Torii Hunter is back after missing two games with a bruised knee. SOURCE: Tom Gage, Detroit News
Insight: He'll bat third and play right field. Hunter had been on a home run hitting tear before his injury, blasting three jacks in a span of four games. He's 2-for-2 in his career against tonight's starting pitcher, Ian Kennedy.
Wil Myers, RF, TAM4/12/2014 10:45:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay right fielder Wil Myers played in Friday's game against Texas, but will sit Saturday.
Insight: Myers is off to a slow start (.231, 0 HR, 4 RBI). Matt Joyce will start in right field.
Carlos Beltran, RF, NYY4/12/2014 9:25:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran is hitless in nine at-bats against right-hander John Lackey.
Insight: Beltran is off to a rough start, batting just .243 through the first 10 games and this matchup won't help. He was slow to begin last season too and managed to finish April 2013 batting .307 with six homers and 17 RBI.
Matt Joyce, RF, TAMHot4/11/2014 10:36:00 PM
Description: Rays DH Matt Joyce went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk Friday at Cincinnati.

Josh Reddick, RF, OAK4/11/2014 6:17:00 PM
Description: Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick is out of the lineup again Friday.
Insight: Jane Lee of mlb.com reported earlier Friday that Reddick could be demoted following the activation of Craig Gentry (back) from the DL, but Reddick was spotted taking batting practice and is still on the roster. After hitting .226 last year, Reddick is off to a 3-for-29 start with 13 Ks. His 32-homer 2012 season seems like it was ages ago.
Yasiel Puig, RF, LOS4/11/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig (thumb) will return to the lineup Friday night against the Diamondbacks, according to Ken Gurnick of mlb.com.
Insight: The 23-year-old suffered a sprained thumb while sliding head-first into first base Saturday and didn't start the last three games, but he pinch hiht Wednesday.
Marlon Byrd, RF, PHI4/10/2014 10:00:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI Thursday against the Brewers.
Insight: Byrd has two homers, 11 Ks and a .263 average in 38 at-bats. He hit .291 with a career-high 24 round-trippers last season, but we're skeptical that he'll duplicate those numbers at age 36 after hitting more than 12 HRs in a season just once before last year.
Jayson Werth, RF, WASHot4/10/2014 8:40:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth went yard for the second straight game Thursday.
Insight: Werth hit .349 with 20 homers and a 1.033 OPS over his last 93 games last season and he's picked up where he left off. In nine games, Werth is 12-for-32 (.375) with two homers, eight RBI, eight runs and two steals.
Avisail Garcia, RF, CWS4/10/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia (torn labrum) is done for the season, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: Garcia will undergo surgery within the next week after suffering the injury while trying to make a diving catch Wednesday. The promising 22-year-old won't be seen again until 2015. His absence will open up more at-bats for Dayan Viciedo and Paul Konerko.
Avisail Garcia, RF, CWS4/10/2014 3:04:00 PM
Description: Chicago right fielder Avisail Garcia has a torn labrum in his left shoulder after attempting a diving catch Thursday.
Insight: Garcia had been placed on the DL and the team recalled Jordan Danks. The injury should provide more playing time for Dayan Viciedo..
Josh Reddick, RF, OAK4/10/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Athletics right fielder Josh Reddick is out of the lineup Thursday.
Insight: Reddick is batting just .103 this spring with a league-leading or is that league worst 13 strikeouts. A day off may be what he needs. Brandon Moss will play in right field and Daric Barton at 1B.
Giancarlo Stanton, RF, MIA4/10/2014 9:57:00 AM
Description: Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton is 8-for-21 (.381) against Washington ace Stephen Strasburg with a pair of homers.
Insight: Stanton is off to a quick start, batting .324 and leading the league in RBI with 13. Although a favorable matchup, he's the only Marlins hitter with a lot of success and may be left stranded on base.
Jayson Werth, RF, WASHot4/9/2014 11:04:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth crushed a go-ahead grand slam in the bottom of the eighth Wednesday against the Marlins.
Insight: It was his first homer of 2014 and the fourth grand slam of his career (first with Washington). Werth hit .349 with 20 homers, 68 RBI, 64 runs and a 1.033 OPS in his last 93 games last season and has hit over .300 two years in a row. He's off to a .345 start this season.

Insight: Heyward had zero hits in his last 20 at-bats prior to Wednesday's game.
Yasiel Puig, RF, LOS4/9/2014 9:19:00 PM
Description: Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig (sprained left thumb) will not start Wednesday, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.
Insight: The 23-year-old suffered the thumb injury while sliding head-first into first base Saturday. The Dodgers have four solid outfielders (Puig, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford) and can easily absorb this injury and give Puig all the rest he needs.
Torii Hunter, RF, DETHot4/9/2014 9:18:00 PM
Description: Detroit RF Torii Hunter (knee) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, according to Jason Beck of mlb.com.
Insight: Hunter exited Tuesday's game with a left knee contusion and manager Brad Ausmus says he'd like to keep Hunter off his feet until Friday.
Charlie Blackmon, RF, COLHot4/9/2014 8:02:00 PM
Description: Colorado right fielder Charlie Blackmon stayed hot with three hits Wednesday against the White Sox.
Insight: One of the hits was a triple. Blackmon is 16-for-34 (.471) with six extra-base hits, eight RBI, seven runs and two steals.
David Lough, RF, BAL4/9/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: The Orioles have reversed course and will not place David Lough (concussion-like symptoms) on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Lough passed concussion tests on Wednesday and will stay off the DL. The 28-year-old is off to a 2-for-19 (.105) start and could lose at-bats to Delmon Young.
Avisail Garcia, RF, CWS4/9/2014 7:54:00 PM
Description: Chicago right fielder Avisail Garcia jammed his left shoulder while attempting to make a diving catch Thursday. X-rays ruled out a fracture, separation or dislocation, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Insight: Garcia had his MRI in a sling after the game and will have an MRI Thursday. The 22-year-old went 4-for-5 with two homers Tuesday and walked twice Wednesday.
Oswaldo Arcia, RF, MIN4/9/2014 5:14:00 PM
Description: According to Rhett Bollinger of mlb.com, the Twins are expected to place outfielder Oswaldo Arcia (wrist) on the disabled list.
Insight: Arcia hit .251 with 14 HR and 43 RBI last season while striking out 117 times in 351 at-bats. He hit .111 in his first four games and is dealing with right wrist issues for the second straight season.
Avisail Garcia, RF, CWS4/9/2014 9:52:00 AM
Description: Chicago right fielder Avisail Garcia belted four hits Tuesday in a 15-3 onslaught of Colorado.
Insight: Two of those hits went for home runs. The 22-year-old now has nine jacks in 320 career at bats. We'll see if Garcia (.276, 2 HR, 4 RBI) has any magic left Wednesday in the series finale.
David Murphy, RF, CLEHot4/8/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Indians right fielder David Murphy followed up his four-hit game Sunday with two more hits, including his first homer with Cleveland, in three at-bats Tuesday against the Padres.
Insight: Murphy also had a double and scored three runs. The Rangers tasked Murphy, who hit .304 with 15 homers in 2012, with replacing Josh Hamilton last season, but he batted .220 with 13 homers and a .656 OPS. He's trying to bounce back in Cleveland.
Jose Bautista, RF, TOR4/8/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista smacked a solo homer Tuesday against Houston.
Insight: Bautista has four round-trippers in eight games. He'll hit 40 if he can manage to play 140+ games for the first time since 2011.
David Lough, RF, BAL4/8/2014 6:45:00 PM
Description: Baltimore outfielder David Lough is headed to the 15-day disabled list. SOURCE: Roch Kubatko, MASN
Insight: This could be related to the neck injury he suffered during spring training. Lough's vacant roster spot will be absorbed by Jemile Weeks (.111 AVG in eight games for Oakland last season).
Yasiel Puig, RF, LOS4/8/2014 6:24:00 PM
Description: Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig (strained left thumb) is out of the lineup again Tuesday.
Insight: The 23-year-old suffered the injury while sliding head-first into first base Saturday. The Dodgers have four solid outfielders (Puig, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford) and can easily absorb this injury and give Puig all the rest he needs.
Jay Bruce, RF, CIN4/8/2014 1:40:00 PM
Description: Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is a career .438 hitter with four extra base hits in 16 at-bats versus Cardinals starter Lance Lynn.
Insight: The outfielder doesn't get as much credit as he should because of a mediocre batting average which sometimes hides the fact that he's been a lock for 30 homers and 95-plus RBI for the past three seasons. Start him Tuesday.
Giancarlo Stanton, RF, MIA4/8/2014 10:24:00 AM
Description: Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton is just 1-for-10 against Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez.
Insight: Stanton has gotten out of the gate quickly, batting .345 with a pair of homers and 12 RBI, but this is an unfavorable matchup against a tough lefty. Don't expect much as Gonzalez will walk him rather than give in (4 BB).
Oswaldo Arcia, RF, MIN4/7/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: Minnesota right fielder Oswaldo Arcia is questionable for Monday's game against Oakland with a sore left wrist.
Insight: Arcia has done nothing to warrant attention from fantasy owners. He batted .251 with 14 HR and 43 RBI last season, but is hitting just .111 so far this spring.
Carlos Beltran, RF, NYY4/7/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran is a career .364 hitter with a pair of homers in 11 at-bats versus Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez.
Insight: Beltran is off to a slow start with just three hits in 19 at-bats (.158) so may not be ready to take advantage of this favorable matchup.
Yasiel Puig, RF, LOS4/7/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig's MRI revealed a strained left thumb ligament.
Insight: The 23-year-old suffered the injury while sliding head-first into first base Saturday. He should avoid a trip to the disabled list and could even play Tuesday, though the smart money says he takes a few more days off. The Dodgers have four solid outfielders (Puig, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford) and can easily absorb this injury and give Puig all the rest he needs.
David Murphy, RF, CLE4/6/2014 7:02:00 PM
Description: Indians right fielder David Murphy swatted four hits Sunday in a loss to Minnesota.
Insight: Murphy had just two hits in 14 at bats this season prior to Sunday. It's the veteran's first four-hit game since June 27, 2012.
Torii Hunter, RF, DETHot4/6/2014 5:02:00 PM
Description: Torii Hunter's power surge continued Sunday in a loss to Baltimore.
Insight: Hunter's solo shot in the fourth was Detroit's only run of the afternoon. The veteran has left the yard three times in his last three appearances. In 2013, Hunter didn't hit his third homer until June 16th. That was his 59th game of the season.
Yasiel Puig, RF, LOS4/6/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig will not play Sunday due to a left thumb injury, according to Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times. Andre Ethier (.304, one HR, six RBI) will get the start in right field against the Giants.
Insight: Puig's X-rays came back negative, though he'll also have an MRI. The 23-year-old has hit .250 with one homer and four RBI this season and was benched Friday for showing up late to the ballpark. He suffered the thumb injury while sliding head-first into first base Saturday and because it's Puig he's likely to draw some criticism for the decision.
Jason Heyward, RF, ATL4/6/2014 11:12:00 AM
Description: Braves outfielder Jason Heyward felt muscle spasms near his neck after fouling off a pitch, but he says he'll play Sunday, according to Mark Bowman of mlb.com.
Insight: Heyward is 0-for-10 over his last three games. We're still waiting for the 24-year-old to realize his potential.
Norichika Aoki, RF, MIL4/6/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Royals RF Norichiki Aoki is out of the starting lineup Sunday against the White Sox.
Insight: Aoki is off to a 4-for-16 start with two doubles, three walks and one steal with his new team. He's getting a day off with lefty Chris Sale on the mound.
Giancarlo Stanton, RF, MIAHot4/6/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: In just eight at-bats against Padres starter Ian Kennedy, Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton has managed to hit two homers.
Insight: Stanton also had a double off Kennedy. The 24-year-old Stanton is off to a flying start, hitting .360 with three doubles, two homers and 11 RBI in six games. Miami's offense is improved so Stanton should see way more pitches to hit than he did last year.
Jose Bautista, RF, TOR4/6/2014 9:17:00 AM
Description: Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista has gone 2-for-23 (.087) with one homer and eight Ks against Yankees starter CC Sabathia.
Insight: Given Sabathia's diminished velocity and struggles to keep the ball down, fantasy owners shouldn't bench Bautista Sunday, but daily league players might want to spend their money elsewhere.
Torii Hunter, RF, DET4/5/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Detroit right fielder Torii Hunter drove home five runs Saturday against the Orioles.
Insight: Hunter had a double and a homer in the game. The 38-year-old has batted above .300 in each of the last two seasons and has one of the best lineup spots in the game as the No. 2 hitter in front of Miguel Cabrera.
Kole Calhoun, RF, ANA4/5/2014 3:46:00 PM
Description: Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun is not in Saturday's starting lineup against the Astros, according to Alden Gonzalez of mlb.com. He's getting the day off.
Insight: The Angels leadoff hitter has started off 3-for-18 with one homer and three runs. He batted .282 with eight home runs in 58 games last season. Colin Cowgill is starting in his place.
Scott Van Slyke, RF, LOS4/5/2014 12:50:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke will get a start in left field on Saturday.
Insight: Given Andre Ethier's .125 batting average versus Madison Bumgarner this is no surprise. Van Slyke offers power to fantasy owners. He he seven last year in 129 at-bats with an .807 OPS.
Roger Bernadina, RF, WAS4/5/2014 12:23:00 PM
Description: Reds outfielder Roger Bernadina will get another start on Saturday due to the injury and slow start of Billy Hamilton.
Insight: Bernadina hit .181 last year and is hitless in five at-bats this season, though he has walked three times. He brings speed to the table, but little else.
Alex Rios, RF, TEXHot4/5/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Rangers right fielder Alex Rios is a career .407 hitter with six extra base hits and a 1.281 OPS versus Rays left-hander David Price.
Insight: Rios is batting .400 this season and has a favorable matchup.
Jason Heyward, RF, ATL4/5/2014 10:11:00 AM
Description: Braves outfielder Jason Heyward is a career .450 hitter versus Washington ace Stephen Strasburg (9-for-20).
Insight: We're still patiently waiting for Heyward to turn his potential into production. If he can do it against the likes of Strasburg, why is he a career .259 hitter?
Charlie Blackmon, RF, COL4/4/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: Colorado right fielder Charlie Blackmon collected six hits Friday in a 12-2 rout of Arizona.
Insight: By all accounts, Blackmon had the game of his life on Friday. He finished with five RBI and was a triple shy of the cycle. His .563 AVG through three games is fourth-best in the major leagues.
Yasiel Puig, RF, LOS4/4/2014 3:32:00 PM
Description: Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig showed up late to batting practice and has been benched for Friday's game against San Francisco.
Insight: Matt Kemp will get the start in his place. We expect this to be a one-game benching, but Puig's fantasy owners can't be happy.
Wil Myers, RF, TAM4/4/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay right fielder Wil Myers wasn't available Thursday and is questionable for Friday's game against Texas due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Matt Joyce (.556, 0 HR, 3 RBI), usually would take over in right field, but he's not very good against left-handers (career .193 batting average vs lefties) so Brandon Guyer might get the spot start.
Wil Myers, RF, TAM4/3/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay right fielder Wil Myers won't be available Thursday against the Blue Jays. SOURCE: Shi Davidi, Sportsnet
Insight: He's out with the flu. Matt Joyce (.667, 0 HR, 3 RBI), usually the Rays' DH, will take over in right field.
Giancarlo Stanton, RF, MIA4/2/2014 11:02:00 PM
Description: Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton hit his first homer of the season Wednesday against the Rockies.
Insight: Stanton is off to a great start, driving in six runs and scoring four in the first three games. The Marlins improved their lineup by adding Garrett Jones, Casey McGehee and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, so Stanton will likely see more pitches to hit this year. According to FanGraphs, Stanton saw the second-least pitches in the strike zone of any qualified hitter in the majors last season.
Jose Bautista, RF, TOR4/2/2014 10:47:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista crushed two solo homers Wednesday at Tampa Bay.
Insight: Bautista slugged six longballs this spring and has averaged 43 per 162 games over the last two seasons. Unfortunately, he played just 210 games in that span due to injuries.
Jayson Werth, RF, WAS4/2/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth went 4-for-5 with a double Wednesday at New York.
Insight: Werth batted just .206 this spring but hit .349 with 20 homers, 68 RBI, 64 runs and a 1.033 OPS in his last 93 games last season and has hit over .300 two years in a row.
Jason Heyward, RF, ATLHot4/1/2014 10:58:00 PM
