Description: Braves C/OF Ryan Doumit could be in for a rare start on Friday as he's a career .500 hitter (8-for-16 with a home run) against Reds right-hander Homer Bailey.
Insight: Doumit is struggling to do much with his infrequent at-bats, but could be a nice surprise if given the chance by manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Insight: Doumit's greatest asset is that he's still eligible at catcher though he spent the majority of last season as a DH. The jack of all trades has also started at first base and both corner outfield positions. He'll be a low-risk, high-reward fantasy option in 2014.

Insight: The Twins also announced that Doumit won't play catcher again this season, sighting a concussion he suffered back in August. Instead, Doumit will get most of his at bats as the DH while making occasional appearances in the outfield. September call-up Josmil Pinto will fill in behind the plate until Joe Mauer, who is also dealing with a concussion, is ready to return.

7/27/2013 9:34:00 AM
Description: Minnesota catcher/outfielder Ryan Doumit has faced Seattle's Aaron Harang 32 times and picked up 11 hits, including three doubles and three home runs.
Insight: Most of those at-bats came while Harang was a member of the Reds and Doumit a member of the Pirates. Doumit was a solid deep-league catching option last season with 18 homers, 75 RBI and a .781 OPS, but he has hit a disappointing .236 with nine round-trippers and a .679 OPS while getting regular playing time this year.

Description: Minnesota catcher/outfielder Ryan Doumit is hitless in eight tries versus Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma with five strikeouts.
Insight: Doumit inherited the cleanup role on Wednesday with Joe Mauer (paternity leave) and Josh Willingham (injury) out of the lineup, but that shouldn't cloud your view that at this time you don't want any part of the Twins makeshift lineup.
7/21/2013 12:26:00 PM
Description: Ryan Doumit will have the pleasure of facing Indians righthander Justin Masterson on Sunday. In the past, that hasn't worked out too well for Doumit.

Description: Minnesota C/OF Ryan Doumit is a career .667 hitter (6-for-9) versus Yankees starter Phil Hughes with a 1.667 OPS.
Insight: The Twins DH is only hitting .238 for the season, but he still provides some value in fantasy because he's eligible at catcher and has eight homers and 38 RBI.

Description: Ryan Doumit is back after missing a few games with an ankle injury.
Insight: The Twins DH is only hitting .237 for the season. He does provide some value in fantasy because he's eligible at catcher.
6/26/2013 12:01:00 PM
Description: Twins C/OF/DH Ryan Doumit is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Miami.

Cold4/30/2013 11:00:00 AM
Description: Minnesota C/DH Ryan Doumit is hitless in 11 at-bats versus Detroit ace Justin Verlander.
Insight: This would be a good day for the Twins DH to take off. He's already off to a poor start, batting .197, and this won't help. Avoid the matchup.
1/26/2013 12:56:00 PM
Description: Braves utility man Ryan Doumit should no longer be considered a catcher, just an outfielder and first baseman, according to Twins beat writer Mike Berardino.
Insight: Doumit's greatest asset was that he was still eligible at catcher though he spent the majority of last season as a DH and in the outfield. He didn't catch at all after suffering a concussion in August and after talking it over with his family isn't expected to return behind the plate in 2014. The Braves have Evan Gattis and Gerald Laird to catch, so barring multiple injuries, Doumit might not be asked to don the "tools of ignorance."
