Ender Inciarte, CF, ARI6/30/2015 10:37:00 AM
Description: Arizona outfielder Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is expected to return from the disabled list next week.
Insight: in case you haven't been paying attention to the late night games, Inciarte was having a very good year, batting .287 with 39 runs scored and nine steals in 63 games. That's a 100 runs scored pace.
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF, NYY6/30/2015 10:11:00 AM
Description: New York center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury (right knee sprain) played his first rehab game on Monday and could be back with the team by the end of the week.
Insight: Hopefully Ellsbury will back before the All-Star Break as he was a force before the injury, batting .324 with 29 runs scored and 14 steals in 37 games. Add him to a hot Brett Gardner and the top of the Yankees order would be one of the best.
Aaron Hicks, CF, MIN6/30/2015 10:06:00 AM
Description: Minnesota outfielder Aaron Hicks has been rehabbing at Triple-A Rochester and could be ready to return to Minnesota and center field.
Insight: Hicks (.247, 1 HR, 2 RBI) in 28 games could be used while rookie Byron Buxton is sidelined. He's yet to show much fantasy value.
Colby Rasmus, CF, HOU6/30/2015 9:24:00 AM
Description: Houston outfielder Colby Rasmus is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Kansas City.
Insight: According to beat writer Evan Drellich, Rasmus was bitten on his left hand by a bug and the antibiotics and IV have left him unable to play the last three games. He's batting .247 with 10 homers and 26 RBI this season.
Eury Perez, CF, ATL6/29/2015 10:55:00 AM
Description: Braves outfielder Eury Perez left Sunday's game after a collision with Cameron Maybin.
Insight: Perez is batting a respectable .296 in the 10 games he's played, but outfielders with a .655 OPS aren't usually fantasy worthy.
Lorenzo Cain, CF, KAN6/28/2015 2:14:00 PM
Description: Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain is not in Sunday's lineup after aggravating his hamstring injury on a stolen base attempt.
Insight: Cain missed a few games last week due to his hamstring issue, but he returned on Saturday. Cain is hoping to return on Monday, but in the meatime, Jarrod Dyson will start in center.

Description: White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton has been tremendously successful against Tigers ace pitcher David Price.
Insight: Eaton is 7-for-16 (.438) versus Price. All seven of the hits have been singles, but the lack of power shouldn't deter any owner from taking Eaton out of the lineup on Sunday.
Adam Jones, CF, BAL6/28/2015 12:28:00 PM
Description: Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is returning on Sunday for the first game of the doubleheader versus the Indians.
Insight: Jones missed the last 10 games due to a sore right shoulder. He is hitting .298 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI this season. It's good to see him back out on the field.

Description: Nationals center fielder Denard Span is back in the lineup for the first game of the doubleheader versus the Phillies on Sunday.

Description: Houston outfielder Colby Rasmus will remain out of the Astros lineup on Sunday.

Description: Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen is in Sunday's lineup versus the Braves.
Insight: McCutchen left Saturday's game after he took a fastball on the elbow in his first at-bat. X-rays were negative, and he is apparently able to play with the bruise. That's great news for his owners.

Description: Houston outfielder Colby Rasmus will sit on Saturday due to a skin infection.
Insight: Rasmus is hitting .247 with 10 home runs and 26 RBI. He's always had plenty of power, he just hasn't been able to stay healthy for a full season to show it off. Domingo Santana will take his place in right field.
Rajai Davis, CF, DET6/27/2015 2:33:00 PM
Description: Tigers center fielder Rajai Davis will make a start on Saturday and fantasy owners needing a stolen base or two should lok this way.
Insight: Davis is five-for-five in stolen base attempts versus White Sox starter John Danks. Davis is batting .280 with two homers, 12 RBI, 29 runs and 14 steals. On the other hand there is a very good chance this one will be rained out just like the Orioles-Indians game.
Yasiel Puig, CF, LOS6/27/2015 1:46:00 PM
Description: Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig isn't in Saturday's starting lineup.
Insight: Puig has some discomfort on his left hand from a callus, but obviously he can't be far off if he was able to pinch hit. He's a .308 hitter with an .879 OPS through 28 games.
Kevin Kiermaier, CF, TAM6/27/2015 12:01:00 PM
Description: Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier is not in Saturday's starting lineup.
Insight: Kiermaier is slashing .266/.301/.430 with four home runs, 15 RBI and 32 RBI, but fantasy owners need more production from him if he's to be fantasy worthy. David DeJesus will get the start.
Andrew McCutchen, CF, PITHot6/27/2015 10:40:00 AM
Description: Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen is a career .417 hitter (5-for-12) with a pair of home runs against Braves right-hander Julio Teheran.

Description: Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig didn't start on Thursday or Friday, but did get into friday's game as a pinch hitter.

Description: Braves center fielder Cameron Maybin has only faced Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano five times, but he's struck out all five times.
Insight: Maybin is getting a chance to play every day and he's done well with the opportunity, batting .288 with six homers, 36 RBI, 26 runs and 13 steals, but he's yet to put the ball in play against Liriano. Avoid him on Friday. Update: Maybin in not in the starting lineup.

Insight: Puig has some discomfort on his left hand from a callus. He's a .311 hitter with an .887 OPS through 27 games, though most of the damage has been done at home and this one is in Miami. Scott Van Slyke is likely to play right field again.
Chris Coghlan, CF, CHC6/26/2015 11:11:00 AM
Description: Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan is 7-for-12 (.583) versus Cardinals starter John Lackey.
Insight: Coghlan was just 1-for-8 in the four-game set with the Dodgers. He is batting just .246 with eight homers, 18 RBI and 28 runs, but it's hard not to like this matchup.

Yasiel Puig, CF, LOS6/26/2015 10:09:00 AM

Insight: The injury is not considered severe. Consider him day-to-day for now as we await word on whether he will play on Friday. He's batting .290 with six homers, 32 RBI, 41 runs and 14 steals. Royals manager Ned Yost is thinking Friday will be the day he returns to the lineup.

The Reds scored the final two runs of the game, but they couldn't push across the tying run. McCutchen also had a double, which he legged out, running hard right out of the box. It's great to see McCutchen running so well after his knee issue in early April.

Adam Jones, CF, BAL6/23/2015 3:59:00 PM
Description: Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was not in the starting lineup on Sunday and is out of the lineup again on Tuesday.
Insight: Fantasy owners, and Orioles fans should start to get concerned. He's missed five of the last seven games, so obviously his shoulder isn't healing very well. David Lough will make a start in center field, but his .222 batting average doesn't offer much value.

Description: Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar is a career 0-for-8 with five strikeouts against Rays starter Chris Archer.
Insight: Pillar has done a decent job in center field, batting .269 with six home runs and 34 RBI and 40 runs scored, but he apparently has trouble just putting the bat on the ball when Archer in on the hill. Stay away on Tuesday.
