• Lifts 11th homer
    Contreras went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Contreras went 0-for-10 over his previous three games. He was able to snap the slump in his second at-bat Sunday with his solo shot, which put the Brewers ahead 2-1 in the third inning. The All-Star catcher has had few quiet stretches this year. He's now at a .286/.352/.440 slash line with 11 homers, 55 RBI, 65 runs scored, 23 doubles and five stolen bases over 93 games.

  • Busy in Sunday's win
    Mitchell went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Mitchell entered Sunday without a homer or a steal before getting one of each in this contest. The outfielder is hitting just .192 with three RBI and two runs scored over his first 10 games of the season after missing the first three months of the year with a fractured finger. He has been limited to a strong-side platoon role so far, sharing center field with switch hitter Blake Perkins. Rotowire.com 10 minutes ago

    Advice: Adames has gone 9-for-21 (.429) with nine RBI over his last five games.

For the season, Adames is slashing .246/.330/.430 with 15 homers, 67 RBI, 52 runs scored, 12 stolen bases and 23 doubles across 97 games. Rotowire.com 13 minutes ago

  • Triples, steals base Sunday
    McKinstry went 1-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Dodgers. He also stole a base.

    Advice: McKinstry showed off his speed in the last game of the first half, as he recorded his third triple of the season and seventh stolen base. The utility player got the start at shortstop with Javier Baez (back) held out, though Baez is not expected to need a stint on the injured list. McKinstry will slot into a reserve role after the All-Star break if Baez is healthy, which limits the former's fantasy upside. Rotowire.com 14 minutes ago

    Vladimir Guerrero Jr. clobbered a go-ahead solo homer in the seventh inning on Sunday, leading the Blue Jays to an 8-7 victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The two sides traded seven-run rallies in the fourth and fifth inning on Sunday, then Guerrero Jr. swung the game back in the Jays’ direction with a 438-foot (109.9 mph EV) go-ahead solo shot off of Kevin Ginkel in the seventh. He also singled and doubled in the ballgame, finishing the day 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. On the season, the 25-year-old slugger is now hitting .288/.359/.456 with 14 long balls and 55 RBI.

  • Kevin Kiermaier blasts grand slam against D’Backs
    Kevin Kiermaier capped off a seven-run uprising in the fourth inning on Sunday with a grand slam as the Blue Jays eked out a one-run victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Kiermaier, who was passed through waivers unclaimed earlier in the week, capped off a seven-run rally against Zac Gallen with a 395-foot (97.4 mph EV) grand slam on a first-pitch cutter. That would be his only hit in four at-bats on the day, but it played a critical role in the Jays’ victory. On the season, the defensive specialist is slashing .189/.234/.306 with four homers and 18 RBI. Rotoworld 18 minutes ago
  • Ketel Marte’s grand slam not enough to beat Jays
