Soaring Down South
Just as we think Galvis is fading, he steals a base in back-to-back games Friday and Saturday before knocking in three runs Sunday. Though he batted just. Gallardo should have trouble with the long ball away from Safeco Field. Mitch Moreland L , Using Moreland typically makes more sense against right-handed pitchers, and this may be a perfect chance.
Anderson has negatively regressed recently, and righty bats have torched him all season. Miller Park remains an attractive power park for lefty batters. Neil Walker B , Walker's platoon advantage at Citi Field could help him breaking out of his season-long swoon. Jayson Werth R , The Bearded One will land here frequently when he faces a southpaw as he boasts a career.
Werth also hit second for eight straight games with Adam Eaton knee out for the year. Righty hitters hold a career. Danny Valencia R , 6. The switch has flipped for Seattle's starting first baseman, who's 8-for with two home runs and six RBIs in his past five starts. Robbie Grossman B , 3. Grossman has hit leadoff, cleanup or fifth in all but two of his games this season, and he's snapping out of a recent funk after lobbing his second home run of the season Saturday.
The switch-hitter boasts a career. Target Field boosts right-handed power. Hitter ratings account for the opposing starting pitcher's history three years' worth, as well as the past 21 days and ballpark factors.
Weighted on-base average wOBA is the primary statistic used in the calculation. Ratings range from 1 to 10, with 10 representing the best possible matchup, statistically speaking, and 1 representing the worst. So, for example, a 10 is a must-start rating, whereas a 1 should be avoided if possible ; a is poor, is fair, is average, is very good and is excellent.

Fantasy baseball daily notes for May 10 d Tim Heaney. Fantasy baseball forecaster for Week 24 -- Sept. He bounced back from a rough outing against San Antonio to total 33 points and 13 assists versus Denver and also hit at least four 3-pointers for the first time since November The All-Star guard has notched triple-doubles in both previous meetings against the Pelicans this season, totaling 38 points, 27 rebounds and 26 assists, but he also has shot just That shooting percentage is really what separates him from Simmons.
Westbrook has recorded four straight triple-doubles versus New Orleans and five in the last six meetings, averaging While Rivers is coming off a poor game in which he shot one of eight and had just three points in a loss to Portland, coach Doc Rivers' son will see major minutes since Milos Teodosic is out with a foot injury and share ball-handling responsibilities with Lou Williams.
In the eight games before the loss to the Trail Blazers, Rivers averaged He shot just three for 12 against the Pacers on March 23 and finished with ten points, but he also had eight assists. James Harden is the best shooting guard available, and more than usual, he will be the focal point of Houston's offense since they will be without running mate Chris Paul and possibly fellow shooting guard Eric Gordon.
About the only thing Harden is not doing well during this winning streak is hitting from beyond the arc. He has gone five for 33 from deep in his last four games yet has still averaged Harden has played in nine games of Houston's current game run, averaging Those perimeter struggles have existed against San Antonio this season, making just nine of 34, but he has scored 28 points in each of the three wins to go with 23 assists and 15 rebounds.
Harden has averaged Thompson's first game back after missing eight with a sprained thumb went better than expected as he made three of seven from 3-point range and ten of 19 overall while scoring 25 points against Sacramento on Saturday night. There is little downside to playing Thompson given his opponent Sunday is Phoenix, and coach Steve Kerr appears committed to giving him in-game conditioning after he logged 32 minutes versus the Kings.
The hand injury prevented him from playing in the most recent meeting March 16, and Thompson had 16 points in the other contest in February, knocking down seven of 12 shots. Thompson has scored in double figures in his last 20 games versus the Suns, averaging Bogdanovic is the second scoring option behind Victor Oladipo and is enjoying one of his best stretches of the season, averaging This follows a five-game stretch in which he averaged 6.
He went 12 of 18 and three of six from beyond the arc against the Clippers on March 23 to start his current surge, and his 28 points were one off his season high. Bogdanovic has scored in double figures in six of his last seven matchups with Los Angeles, scoring It has been six whole games since LeBron James has posted a triple-double, which has caused little consternation.
Then again, he has averaged The th should come quickly against Dirk Nowitzki and Dallas, against whom he had 19 points, 11 rebounds and four assists November Combo forward Keita Bates-Diop could be one of the most versatile players on the Suns roster, if selected with the 31st pick. Bates-Diop put solid numbers this past college basketball season, averaging His 6-foot-8 frame makes him an interesting defensive option to come off the bench for the Suns.
He would be ideal for the role of a small-ball four if drafted by the Suns. Hopefully, Malik Newman will drop down to the Suns at the 59th pick. Newman could be the steal of the second round.
With some development in the G-League, Newman could become a scoring sixth man off the bench in the future. He ended his last season strong with multiple plus point games. Next 1 of 4 Prev post.
