Description: Nationals minor league third baseman Brandon Laird has been hitting the ball well this year with Triple-A Syracuse. He is batting .310 with 15 home runs and 77 RBI.
Insight: Brother of Gerald Laird, he played 25 games in big leagues this year, but Laird is in the Nationals minor league system. Even with Ryan Zimmerman is out, Anthony Rendon moved to third base, so Laird has yet to play in Washington.

Description: Astros third baseman Brandon Laird erupted for three hits Wednesday in a win over the Mariners.
Insight: All three were for extra bases (two doubles and a home run). This was just Laird's fifth game of the season so it's still too early to tell if he'll be a factor in fantasy.
