Player Notes
Luis Valbuena hit his 18th and 19th homers Tuesday against the Angels.

Advice: Valbuena might be having the most bizarre season of anyone in the league, what with his .195 average and a homer total that ranks second in the AL. He has just 47 hits, a full 40 percent of which were homers. He showed nice pop last year, too, but that resulted in 16 homers in 478 at-bats with the Cubs. His 19 homers this year have come in 240 at-bats. We doubt he'll keep hitting homers at this rate, but then, we would have said that a month ago, too.
