Description: Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton had been moved down to the eighth spot in the Cincinnati order on Wednesday.
Insight: Unfortunately, Hamilton's only value to fantasy owners this season has been steals, and that will take a huge hit with him hitting eighth. He is batting just .212/.264/.336, so in order to continue adding the his 17 steals and reclaim the leadoff spot, it appears Hamilton will have to get out of his slump.
Description: New York has placed center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury on the 15-day disabled list due to a right knee sprain.
Insight: Not good. Ellsbury has been injury prone in his career, so this is bad news. There is no definitive timetable yet for his return. In the meantime, Chris Young will likely get most of the starts in the outfield without Ellsbury.

Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn will not start on Monday versus the Chicago White Sox.

If owners still want to try and buy low on McCutchen, better do that soon because he is trending upwards.
Description: Cardinals center fielder Jon Jay is not in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Pirates.
Insight: Jay usually sits versus lefties, so it is not a surprise he will be on the bench with Jeff Locke on the mound for Pittsburgh. Jay is batting .248 with two extra-base hits, six RBI and 11 runs this season.
Description: Angels center fielder Mike Trout was 3-for-4 with a solo home run in the, 6-5, loss to the Astros on Saturday.
