Brian Dozier2BTwins second baseman Brian Dozier was 2-for-5 with a RBI-double and two runs in the, 8-5, victory over the Mariners on Saturday.Dozier hit his double in the seventh to give the Twins some insurance runs late. Dozier hasn't been great to start 2015, so perhaps this game gets him going. He is hitting .215 with one home run and five RBI this season.4/26/2015 9:30:00 AM
Joe Mauer1BTwins first baseman Joe Mauer has nine hits, including three home runs, against Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie.Mauer is 9-for-25 overall with four RBI and six walks versus Guthrie. It would be nice for Mauer to show some of that power on Wednesday because he still doesn't have a home run in 52 at-bats in 2015.4/22/2015 11:09:00 AM
Torii HunterRFTwins outfielder Torii Hunter is 16-for-49 with eight RBI versus Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie.Hunter also had four extra-base hits against Guthrie. Coming into Wednesday, Hunter has a six-game win streak.4/22/2015 11:07:00 AM
Joe Mauer1BTwins first baseman Joe Mauer had two hits and an RBI in the, 6-5, loss to the Royals on Tuesday.Mauer had an RBI-single in the fourth to score Danny Santana. It was his fifth RBI, but he still doesn't have a home run. Because of the lack of power, Mauer is only fantasy relevant in very deep leagues.4/22/2015 9:19:00 AM
ColdRicky NolascoSPTwins starter Ricky Nolasco (sore elbow) is headed out on a rehab assignment, according to Twins general manager Terry Ryan.Nolasco wasn't fantasy relevant last season (6-12, 5.38 ERA, 1.516 WHIP) and his first start in 2015 was just ugly. Take a wait and see attitude before adding Nolasco to your roster.4/20/2015 11:31:00 AM
Torii HunterRFTwins outfielder Torii Hunter hit his first home run of his second tenure with the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.Hunter hit a three-run bomb in the sixth put Minnesota ahead, 7-1, and pretty much put the game away. Hunter is hitting .225 with six RBI to go with his one digger.4/19/2015 6:13:00 PM
Phil HughesSPTwins starter Phil Hughes allowed four runs Saturday versus Cleveland.Hughes continues to be an irrelevant fantasy option. He went 6 2/3 innings and allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk, while strking out three. He has a 5.30 ERA through three starts.4/18/2015 4:39:00 PM
Trevor Plouffe3BTwins third baseman Trevor Plouffe hit a walk off home run in the 11th to lift the Twins to a, 3-2, victory over the Indians, but will sit on Saturday.It's probably not a coincidence that he's just 1-for-11 with five strikeouts against Saturday's scheduled starter Danny Salazar. Eduardo Nunez will get the start at the hot corner.4/18/2015 11:36:00 AM

ColdMichael BournCFIndians center fielder Michael Bourn is batting eighth in Monday's starting lineup.It's the first time he's batted somewhere other than first in three seasons. Considering he's batting .169 with 17 Ks and just 11 hits, he's lucky to be in the lineup at all. He's not even stealing bases. 4/25/2015 3:24:00 PM
Carlos CarrascoSPIndians starter Carlos Carrasco allowef ive runs in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.He lasted just 4 1/3 innings and allowed those five runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out sive. Carrasco is 2-2 with a 4.60 ERA.4/26/2015 4:32:00 PM

Carlos CarrascoSPIndians manager Terry Francona admitted he took starter Carlos Carrasco out of Tuesday's game after just 60 pitches because Carrasco was "tight" according to cleveland.com.Francona didn't say what body part was tight, but he did also say he might have overreacted in taking him out. Carrasco should make his next start, but fantasy owners should double check in the next couple of days just to make sure.4/22/2015 2:24:00 PM
Michael BrantleyLFIndians left fielder Michael Brantley had two hits in the, 6-2, victory over the White Sox on Tuesday.Brantley is off to a bit of a slow start mostly due to a back issue, but the two hits raised his average over 40 points.
