Jason Bourgeois had a successful start to his rehab assignment going 2-for-4 including a triple. Bourgeois was on fire, .407 batting average and 12 stolen bases, when he suffered a strained oblique and is a must add especially if you’re in need of steals. Bourgeois is only owned in 11% of Yahoo! leagues and 16.3% of ESPN leagues.
Don’t feel bad if you missed out on Royals hot-shot youngster
Eric Hosmer, more minor league promotions are on the horizon. The Blue Jays are finally ready to promote super prospect
Brett Lawrie. Lawrie has been destroying AAA pitching to the tune of a .354 batting average with 15 home runs, 49 RBI and 11 steals. There’s a good chance Lawrie on your waiver wire and should be added immediately.
Endy Chavez continues his hot ways as he went 4-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base. Chavez is now hitting .415 through 41 at-bats. With Julio Borbon scheduled to return within the next week nothing is promised to Chavez, but he should be on your radar.
Joakim Soria may not be out of the closers role for long as he threw two scoreless innings on Thursday night. Don’t let your chance to buy-low slip away without making an offer.
How is Cardinals outfielder
Allen Craig available in over 90% of ESPN leagues? After a 2-for-3 performance on Thursday, Craig is now hitting .347 with four home runs, 22 RBI and four stolen bases.
Thanks to an April in which he hit .224 with one home run and nine RBI I was the recipient of much abuse from a buddy of mine who draft
Mike Morse at my urging. But, after a scorching May, Morse is now hitting .319 with seven home runs and 26 RBI. The silence is now deafening. Thank you, Mike Morse.
