postheadericon ATTA BOY, ALBERT!

Albert Pujols – After 106 at bats, Pujols finally breaks the Home run drought.  Let’s hope he gets hot and goes on a massive home run streak.
Matt Holliday – Might be out until Friday now, don’t be surprised if you hear a “hes now going on the DL” sometime soon.
Jered Weaver – after 4 straight pedestrian starts, he finally has a great start.  He only K’d 5 on the night, so its not exactly what fantasy owners wanted, but they’ll take this start from him.
Corey Hart – hit his first three home runs of the season on Monday night with 7 RBI’s.  Hart has been hitting well the month of May, hopefully this is the start of many more home runs for Hart.
Edinson Volquez – Sent to the minors.  If you were still starting this guy in mixed leagues, I feel bad for your team.
Alexi Ogando – 9 IP, 0 ER, 6 K’s while picking a win for the Rangers.  Ogando has his best start of the year against a hot Sox team.  This guy just continues to impress, but with really only one plus pitch, we cant keep expecting this type of success.
Nelson Cruz – 1 for 4 with a 2 run home run.  Way to announce your return with a bang!
Josh Hamilton – Also returns from the DL and hits a home run in his first at bat!
Michael Cuddyer – 2 for 3 with a double and a walk. Cuddyers average is all the way up to .267 after being at .235 on May 13th.  Cuddyers has great value this year as he now has 2B eligibility.  The time to buy low on him might be expiring, test the waters.
Dustin Pedroia – Left in the 8th inning with a left leg injury.  There has been no update as to how long he will be out.  Fantasy owners need to monitor this situation closely.
Jose Bautista – Hit his 19th home run Monday.  Home run machine!
Chase Utley – 0 for 5 in his season debut with the Phillies.  Don’t sweat it, it’s going to take him some time to get his timing in the Majors.
