Luis Robert went 1-for-5 with a home run on Thursday versus the Blue Jays. The two-run shot came off Blue Jays starter Hyun-Jin Ryu and traveled an estimated 410-feet with an exit velocity of 108.5 miles per hour. Robert is now batting .331/.370/.506 with four home runs, 13 doubles, and five stolen bases over 154 at-bats this season. The 24-year-old could be quite the difference-maker down the stretch on fantasy leagues.

Ian Happ went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI during Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader vs the Rockies. The home run was a three-run blast off Rockies reliever Daniel Bard in the seventh inning that traveled an estimated 381 feet over the centerfield wall. Happ has been on fire lately, hitting .319/.385/.660 over the last 15 games with four home runs and 10 RBI, while carrying a 4/3 K/BB ratio over the past week. Fantasy managers should be sure and continue to ride the wave because Happ has proven to stay hot in the past for long periods of time.
