postheadericon THE RETURN OF REYES!

Jose Reyes – Activated from the DL and picked up right where he left off.  Reyes went 2 for 5 with a run scored in his return.  Fantasy owners rejoice!

Chien-Ming Wang – Should be on the Nationals roster July 29th.  Wang has not been in the majors since 2009, so don’t expect too much from him.

Jose Bautista – 1 for 6 in his return to the lineup.  Come on Bautista, youre making my #1 ranking look stupid now!

Roy Oswalt – Threw a bullpen session without any pain on Tuesday.  Oswalt is expected to make a minor league rehab start next week.

Brandon Belt – Called up Tuesday and responded by going 2 for 4 with a home run and 3 RBI.  Belt is only worth an add in NL only league, keeper leagues and extremely deep mixed leagues.

Ryan Braun – returned to the lineup and went 1 for 3 with a home run.  One doesn’t realize how valuable Braun is to your team until he’s gone!

Jason Isringhausen – Got his first save since 2008 by tossing a scoreless 9th inning Tuesday.  Isringhausen appears to be the favorite for closing duties.  If youre lacking saves, go ahead and pick up Izzy!

Jason Heyward – The new glass chipper is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday.  When he returns, he better hit 3 home runs for all the time he has missed.

Dan Uggla – 2 for 4 with 2 home runs and now has 17 home runs on the year.  Uggla is still batting under .200 and only has 37 RBIs, so hopefully this is the start of a scorching hot streak.

Matt Garza – 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 K and had his bullpen blow him a lead.  Garza has been hot and cold all year, and even with his inconsistency his ERA sits at 3.80.  I would continue to roll Garza out there every start.
