From April 22 to May 8, the ‘ hit .188 (9 for 48), filling those who predicted his imminent demise with glee. But since then, he’s batting .341 (14 for 41) with four home runs in 10 games.

In the biz, we call that “weathering the storm.” Or at least we should. Basically, when a guy overdue for a cold streak comes out of that cold streak with numbers nearly as impressive as when he went in, his breakthrough seems all the more credible.

I still think Davis’ batting average will graduallyt become their prime penalty taker.Gabriel Jesus followed recent examples from Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling in missing from 12 yards for City on Wednesday night as they recorded a narrow 1-0 win away to Sheffield United in the Premier League.And fall to about the .280 range over the next four-plus months, but he’ll have so many bursts of productivity during that time that you’ll hardly care. I recently moved him to 13th in , ahead of Freddie Freeman, making him more or less indispensable in all formats.

Here we go again with first baseman . This guy is really prone to slow starts.

After another disappointing April, LaRoche is now a career .214 hitter during March/April games. The good news is that LaRoche usually heats up as we get deeper into the summer. LaRoche’s slash line in the first half — .244/.323/.436/.759 — pales in comparison to his slash line in the second half — .293/.353/.533/.886.

I get why Fantasy owners have been . First base is such a deep position that you don’t have to endure prolonged slumps at the position because you can usually find a viable replacement on your bench or waivers. But if you can afford to be patient with LaRoche, then the payoff should be huge down the road.

Just some other numbers to keep in mind. LaRoche has a , which is lower than his career .307 mark, per FanGraphs.com. You look at his batted ball and plate-discipline numbers and nothing really jumps out, so it seems the hits haven’t been falling for the veteran first baseman. But once they do, then LaRoche might be a player you keep in your lineup.

There is no denying that first baseman was hitting the ball well before his injury, as a .542 batting average and three home runs in just 24 at-bats more than speaks for itself. He is set to return from his oblique injury in Week 6 (May 6-12), and may represent a tantalizing starting option for some owners.

Unfortunately, his 24 at-bats came sprinkled throughout the course of 18 days, and there is little indication that more playing time is going to become available upon his return. As our Scott White notes in , Adams does not make much sense as a starting option right now. Given the makeup of the Cardinals’ roster, Adams is likely to get lost in the shuffle, no matter how big a stick he might swing.

With early struggles at the plate, Fantasy owners have been given little reason to pursue , who has been filling in as the ‘ shortstop in place of Hanley Ramirez (thumb). Still, deep league owners may see Sellers’ .294/.383/.515 line from his three stints at Triple-A Albuquerque and think there is some Fantasy value there.

Sellers can draw walks, but he relied on a high flyball rate and favorable park effects to achieve his power numbers. His flyball-hitting ways won’t produce the same results in Dodger Stadium, so owners won’t get much from Sellers in any category. He can be bypassed in virtually all Fantasy formats.

Flowers’ HR off starter James Shields in the fifth inning was the only run scored in the 1-0 victory for Chicago. Replacing veteran and longtime favorite A.J. Pierzynski behind the plate in the Windy City, Flowers certainly endeared himself to fans by playing the hero. 

He finished the game 1 for 3 with a strikeout hitting out of the No. 8 hole in the lineup.

manager Ron Gardenhire elaborated on his choice to bat catcher second, prior to Monday’s season opener vs. Detroit.

“As I told you guys, I wanted him to bat first, second and third, but I can only bat him in one place,” Gardenhire said, per the Pioneer Press. “We chose second. … More at-bats, all those types of things.”

Mauer has appeared as the No. 2 hitter in 77 career games, batting .316 with a .512 slugging percentage. Mauer has no problem moving out of the No. 3 spot in the order.

“Just have to get ready one batter earlier,” Mauer said. “Not really any United legend Paul Scholes is full of praise for left-back Brandon Williams.Williams, 19, has started five of United’s last six matches, and was again impressive in Wednesday night’s 1-0 win over Wolves in United’s FA Cup third round replay.In Williachanges.
