MLB Pickups of the Day for August 30th

  • Royce Lewis

    Another week, another Wednesday, which means a full slate of midweek afternoon baseball! Let’s see who is performing of late and who may be available to bolster your teams as we close in on the fantasy playoff period.

    Royce Lewis, 3B/SS, Minnesota Twins

    Yahoo 43%, ESPN 10%
    Royce Lewis has been raking since returning to the Twins lineup. His rostership has climbed since I wrote about him two weeks ago, but he’s still out there in the majority of leagues. The former first-overall pick went 1-for-4 with his fifth long ball in 13 contests since coming off the IL. He’s hitting .294 over that stretch with a 1.026 OPS. Through 146 at-bats this year, Lewis has a .315/.363/.534 slash line with nine home runs, 29 RBI and 21 runs scored. He has been flip-flopping between third base and DH but is also shortstop eligible, so if you’re looking for a replacement at that position, he may be your guy.
