James Loney (LAD) – The light-hitting Dodgers first baseman always seems to leave fantasy owners wanting more. Over the past week however, Loney has been scorching at the plate going 15-for-26 (.577 AVG). He has also contributed 3 HR to go along with 7 RBI and 7 runs. He's alos available in the vast majority of leagues. Kyle Seager (CWS) – At one point, he had 4 multi-hit efforts in a row and has gone 14-for-24, good for a .583 AVG during the past seven days. Throw in the fact that in some leagues he is eligible at multiple infield positions and Seager is a hot one to be sure. Mark Reynolds (BAL) –
One of the streakiest players in the game, Reynolds is on another tear of late, hitting homers in 3 straight games, reaching 30 for the season. This is exactly the reason the Orioles picked him up in the off-season and the same holds true for his fantasy owners.
COLD Jason Kubel (MIN) – Perhaps it was the personal family matters he was dealing with. More likely is the bizarre situation he found himself in with his being placed on waivers leaking to the media, followed by rumors he was moving to the White Sox or the Indians. Whathttp://www.blogger.com/post-create.g?blogID=2421217608800810027ever the cause, Kubel has struggled mightily over the past week, going a mere 2-23 at the dish. Geovany Soto – The Cubs' catcher has performed much better behind the plate than at it over the past 7 days, managing a measly single. He followed up that hit by going 6 straight games without a hit. Yikes. Adam Dunn (CWS) – The end of the 2011 season can't come fast enough for Dunn, who did not register a hit over the past week. The good news? The White Sox only trotted him out there for 11 at bats.
