Player Notes
Brian Dozier tripled and singled three times against the White Sox on Sunday.

Advice: Dozier finished the game 4-for-5 with an RBI and run scored. The triple was his first of the 2015 campaign. It's been a bit of a slow start for the second baseman, who posted a 20/20 season last year, but we'll see if this game gets him going. Overall, he's hitting .240/.318/.385 with two home runs, 11 RBI, 18 runs scored and two steals.

Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer and four RBI as the Twins smoked the White Sox 12-2 on Thursday.

Advice: Dozier is hitting .250 with two homers, two doubles, seven RBI and four walks in six games since moving up to the leadoff spot. It's where he belongs, at least either there or in the two hole.

Sun, May 3 Rotoworld
Brian Dozier is not in the Twins' lineup Tuesday.

Advice: It's just a day off. Eduardo Escobar is at second base and Danny Santana is back in the leadoff spot for the Twins, who are taking on Tigers righty Anibal Sanchez.

Moved up to the leadoff spot, Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with a double, a walk, a steal and two runs scored in the Twins' 8-5 victory over the Mariners on Saturday.

Advice: That's more like it. Dozier obviously belongs at or very near the top of the Twins lineup, not in the cleanup spot that he had occupied recently. He raised his average to .215 tonight, and the steal was his first of the year.

Tue, Apr 28 Rotoworld
Brian Dozier went 0-for-4 and struck out three times in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

Advice: Moving Dozier into the cleanup spot hasn't done the Twins any good; he's 5-for-28 with two RBI in eight games there. He should be the team's second best OBP guy behind Joe Mauer, so it'd certainly make more sense to have him batting first or second. Ideally, he'd hit first and Danny Santana would be dropped to the ninth spot.
