Here’s a look at the unheralded players who played well yesterday.


David Eckstein, San Diego Padres
Ecktein went 1 for 5 with a run and 3 RBIs. He’s hitting .274, but isn’t much of a fantasy factor.

Young continuee his impressive 2010 campaign by going 2 for 4 with a HR (5) and 5 RBIs. He’s hitting .298 with 21 RBIs.


Dexter Fowler, Colorado Rockies
Fowler went 3 for 6 with 2 runs, a HR, and a SB to raise his average to .253.
