Description: Los Angeles shortstop Erick Aybar had four hits, all singles, in six at bats Saturday against Atlanta.
Insight: Aybars (.288) is 16-for-46 (.348) with four doubles and seven RBI this month. He's a decent shortstop option, but his fantasy value would be better if he was still a threat to steal 20-30 bases. He's swiped just 17 bags on 28 attempts in 203 games going back to the start of last season after picking up 24 steals per season from 2010-12. He also hits near the bottom of the order so he's scored between 67-71 runs in each of the last five seasons.
