Texas Rangers DFS Notes
John Hicks drilled an RBI double on Wednesday in the Rangers' loss to the Tigers. Hicks supplied some early offense for the Rangers with an RBI double to center field off rookie right-hander Matt Manning in the second inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats in the low-scoring affair. The 31-year-old backstop has cooled off considerably after socking four homers in a four-game span earlier this month.
Detroit Tigers DFS Notes
Akil Baddoo walloped a solo homer on Wednesday, powering the Tigers to a 4-2 victory over the Rangers. Baddoo took righty Jordan Lyles deep to right-center field -- his eighth round-tripper of the season -- in the fifth inning. The 22-year-old rookie sensation has experienced a recent uptick in over-the-fence pop, going deep three times over his last six games. He's emerged as a potential building block for the rebuilding Tigers, who have won six consecutive games since the All-Star break, hitting .273/.349/.481 with 35 runs scored, eight homers, 36 RBI and 14 stolen bases across 261 plate appearances. He has the potential to be special, folks.
