MLB Pickups of the Day for August 16th

  • Royce Lewis

    Another week, another Wednesday, which means more midweek afternoon baseball! Let’s see who is performing of late and who may be available to bolster your fantasy baseball teams.

    Royce Lewis, 3B/SS, Minnesota Twins

    Yahoo 28%, ESPN 6%
    Royce Lewis returned to the Twins lineup last night after missing more than six weeks with an oblique strain. The former first-overall pick went 1-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk and a run scored batting third in the order. Through 98 at-bats this year, Lewis has a .327/.359/.469 slash line with four home runs, 16 RBI and 12 runs scored. He should get plenty of playing time at third base but is also shortstop eligible, so if you’re looking for a replacement at that position, he may be your guy. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that he can stay on the field for the rest of the season.
