    Description: Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia hit a homer Wednesday versus Tampa Bay.

    Description: Mariners second basman Robinson Cano is finally starting to find a groove this season.
    Insight: Many fantasy owners have complained about Cano's slow start, but he does have hits in eight straight games. Cano is also a .423 career hitter with five RBI versus Astros Roberto Hernandez, so Cano is doing just fine.
    Ben Zobrist, 2B, OAK4/22/2015 11:24:00 AM

    Description: Tampa Bay shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is not in Tuesday's starting lineup.

    Description: Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is 5-for-10 with a couple of doubles against Seattle starter Taijuan Walker.
    Insight: Altuve is also 2-for-2 in steals against Walker. he's batting .296 this season , but had a nine-game hitting streak end Monday night. he should get right back on the horse in this favorable matchup.

    Description: Athletics infielder/outifelder Ben Zobrist was not in the lineup on Monday against the Angels and is not expected to be available for Tuesday's game against the LA Angels
    Insight: Zobrist is dealing with soreness in his left knee and was given a cortisone shot so should miss a couple more days, according to Joe Stiglich of Comcast SportsNet California.

    Description: Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett should miss a couple of days after cutting his hand in the shower on Sunday.

    Omar Infante, 2B, KAN4/20/2015 11:49:00 AM
    Description: Royals second baseman Omar Infante is doubtful for Monday's game against Minnesota due to a strained left groin.
    Insight: The Royals added Orlando Calixte from the minors to help their middle infield depth, but neither batter holds much value for fantasy owners.
    Ben Zobrist, 2B, OAK4/20/2015 11:23:00 AM
    Description: Athletics infielder/outifelder Ben Zobrist is questionable for Monday's game against the LA Angels due to a sore left knee.
    Insight: Zobrist left late on Sunday and could get some time off, but it doesn't appear to be serious. He's not a high-average guy, but he's effective. He is batting .267 with one homer, eight RBI, eight runs and a stolen base.
    Devon Travis, 2B, TOR4/20/2015 11:08:00 AM
    Description: X-rays on Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis were negative after he was hit in the left ribcage by a pitch.
    Insight: Travis has been impressive through the first 13 games, hitting .356 with three home runs and a 1.053 OPS. If you need second base help, he's your guy.
    Ryan Flaherty, 2B, BALHot4/20/2015 9:29:00 AM
    Description: If you installed Orioles infielder Ryan Flaherty into your lineup over the weekend, you did well for yourself as he went 4-for-8 with a double and home run over the weekend.
    Insight: Flaherty has played shortstop for the injured J.J. Hardy and now is playing second base for Jonathan Schoop. If he continues to hit like this there will be no need to find a long-term replacement down the road.

    Description: Astros second baseman Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with a caught stealing in the, 4-3, victory over the Angels on Sunday.

    Description: Phillies second baseman Chase Utley has just four hits in 25 at-bats aganst Stephen Strasburg.
    Insight: He has no extra base hits and no RBIs against him as well. Utley will not be a good option Sunday against Washington.

    Insight: He did so in three at-bats, and alos had one RBI and one run scored. Panik is hitting .286 this season.

    Description: Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop took a hit from Pablo Sandoval Friday night and has been diagnosed with a PCL tear and a sprained MCL.

    Description: Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop took a hit from Pablo Sandoval Friday night and is doubtful for Saturday's game, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com.
    Insight: Schoop has shown power early on with three homers and seven RBI through nine games. We should hear more on the injury closer to game-time.
    Kolten Wong, 2B, STLCold4/18/2015 11:40:00 AM
    Description: Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is not in Saturday's starting lineup.
    Insight: Wong is just getting a day of rest. He's batting .207 after going 1-for-12 over the past four games and can probably use the time off. Peter Kozma gets the start at 2B.
    Dan Uggla, 2B, WAS4/18/2015 10:54:00 AM
    Description: Dan Uggla will get the start at second base on Saturday against Aaron Harang and the Phillies.
    Insight: Uglla is a .333 hitter (9-for-27) against Harang with a pair of homers. Yunel Escobar (leg) and Danny Espinosa will get the day off.

    Description: Twins second baseman Brian Dozier is 7-for-11 (.636) against Cleveland right-hander Danny Salazar.

    Description: Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis is just 1-for-11 (.091) against Minnesota starter Mike Pelfrey.
    Insight: We're still waiting for Kipnis to return to his 2013 form and Friday's matchup is likely to make us keep waiting.
    Brian Dozier, 2B, MINCold4/17/2015 11:21:00 AM
    Description: Twins second baseman Brian Dozier is just 3-for-22 against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber.
    Insight: Dozier has twice as many strikeouts (6) as hits. We recommend avoiding this matchup.
    Devon Travis, 2B, TOR4/16/2015 10:28:00 PM
    Description: Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis went 2-for-4 against the Rays on Thursday.
    Insight: Toronto only had four hits in the game, so Travis was the only Blue Jays hitter to make an impact. He doubled in the ninth to score Russell Martin. Travis has been impressive through the first 10 games, hitting .371 with two home runs and seven RBI.
    Howie Kendrick, 2B, LOS4/15/2015 9:29:00 AM
    Description: Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick was the hero Tuesday against Seattle.
    Insight: Kendrick capped the Dodgers' comeback with a walkoff RBI single that scored Jimmy Rollins and Carl Crawford. Kendrick should be active in all formats.
    Robinson Cano, 2B, SEA4/15/2015 9:26:00 AM
    Description: Mariners second basman Robinson Cano smacked his first homer of the season.
    Insight: His 2-for-5 night should help the slow start to the season. The dinger was a two-run shot.
    Chase Utley, 2B, PHI4/14/2015 10:25:00 PM
    Description: Phillies second baseman Chase Utley broke out of his slump on Tuesday night.
    Insight: He did so in a big way, going 3-for-3 with two homers, three RBIs and two runs scored. Even at 36 years old, Utley is a fine option at second base.
    Dustin Pedroia, 2B, BOS4/14/2015 9:40:00 PM
    Description: Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-4 with solo home run in the, 8-7, victory over the Nationals on Tuesday.

    Dee Gordon, 2B, MIA4/14/2015 11:35:00 AM
    Description: Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon is a career .400 hitter (6-for-15) against Braves starter Trevor Cahill.
    Insight: That's not the real reason we like Gordon on Tuesday. It's that he's 3-for-3 in stolen base attempts off of Cahill that makes him an exciting play.
    Stephen Drew, 2B, NYY4/13/2015 11:00:00 PM
    Description: Yankees infielder Stephen Drew played the role of hero Monday night against Baltimore.
    Insight: He hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh, which won the game for New York. However, Drew is not a great fantasy option.
    Ben Zobrist, 2B, OAK4/13/2015 11:24:00 AM
    Description: Athletics infielder/outifelder Ben Zobrist is just 1-for-13 versus Houston right-hander Scott Feldman.
    Insight: Zobrist is batting just .250 this season, but has scored five times and knocked in four runs. So far he's played mostly in the outfield, but did start once at second base. We're hoping he continues to be multi-position eligible.
    Jose Altuve, 2B, HOU4/13/2015 11:21:00 AM
    Description: Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is 9-for-19 (.474) against Oakland left-hander Scott Kazmir.
    Insight: Altuve is also 2-for-2 in stolen base attempts. We're still waiting for Altuve to show up this season as he's batting just .192 for the fix six games.
    Asdrubal Cabrera, 2B, TAMHot4/13/2015 11:13:00 AM
    Description: Tampa Bay shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera apparently likes facing the knuckle ball of R.A. Dickey as he's 4-for-9 with a double and a pair of homers in their matchups.
    Insight: Cabrera is off to a solid start, batting .320 through the first six ganes abd with the favorable matchup could be a nice play on Monday.
    Tommy La Stella, 2B, CHC4/13/2015 10:29:00 AM
    Description: Cubs second baseman Tommy La Stella is doubtful for Monday's game against Cincinnati due to a strained oblique.
    Insight: Mike Olt is also hurting and Jonathan Herrera started Sunday, but has little fantasy value.
    Dee Gordon, 2B, MIA4/12/2015 5:05:00 PM
    Description: Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon went 3-for-5 with double, triple, RBI and run scored on Sunday.
    Insight: It's too bad Gordon wasn't also able to steal a bag, but fantasy owners will take this big day. He is now hitting .346/.370/.500 after the first week of the season.
    Ben Zobrist, 2B, OAK4/12/2015 10:20:00 AM
    Description: Athletics infielder/outifelder Ben Zobrist does not have much success in his career against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
    Insight: Well, not many people have success off Hernandez, but Zobrist is just 4-for-31 with 11 strikeouts versus King Felix. If owners have a better option, sit Zobrist.
    Neil Walker, 2B, PIT4/12/2015 10:16:00 AM
    Description: Pirates second baseman Neil Walker is a career .333 hitter against Brewers starter Kyle Lohse.
    Insight: Walker has five extra-base hits and nine RBI against Lohse as well. The Pirates will have to count on Walker and other in the lineup to step up as Andrew McCutchen could be out again on Sunday.
    Gordon Beckham, 2B, ANACold4/12/2015 10:09:00 AM
    Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is not a good fantasy play on Sunday against Twins starter Phil Hughes.
    Insight: Beckham is 2-for-18 with seven strikeouts in his career versus Hughes. Beckham's two hits are doubles, but it would be wise to go with someone else on Sunday.
    Daniel Murphy, 2B, NYM4/12/2015 10:07:00 AM
    Description: Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy is a .455 lifetime hitter versus Braves starter Alex Wood.
    Insight: Murphy is 5-for-11 with no extra-base hits, but he should be started on Sunday. Murphy is hitting just .111 this season, but perhaps this matchup will get him going.
    Jose Altuve, 2B, HOU4/12/2015 9:30:00 AM
    Description: Astros second baseman Jose Altuve was 2-for-4 with a RBI and walk on Saturday against the Rangers.

    Ian Kinsler, 2B, DETHot4/11/2015 10:06:00 PM
    Description: Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler had a big day, going 4-for-5 with two RBI and three runs as Detroit stayed unbeaten and defeated Cleveland, 9-6.
