Player Notes
Brian Dozier connected for his 30th home run of the season in the Twins' loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

Advice: He added a single and finished 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored. Dozier has generated a sudden burst of power lately with 13 home runs in his last 23 games. This is the first 30-homer season in Dozier's career. He has a .270 batting average this year after being a burden in that fantasy category in all prior seasons. He contributes nicely across the board with 79 runs scored, 76 RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

Advice: Dozier hit a solo jack in the fifth inning, his 10th homer this month and 29th of the season. That's seventh-best in the American League, and it's now a single-season high for the 29-year-old. It's shaping up to be a career year on a few different fronts for Dozier, who is batting .268/.341/.536 with 75 RBI, 77 runs scored and 10 steals this year.

Brian Dozier hit his 27th home run of the year in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

Advice: Dozier greeted Royals starter Dillon Gee rudely, homering to lead off the game. Little did Dozier and company know it would be the only run they would get against Gee and the Royals bullpen on the evening. Dozier is riding a nine-game hitting streak during which he's homered five times with 10 RBI and nine runs scored. His speed has disappeared -- Dozier's eight steals would be the lowest of his career -- but everything else is working for the 29-year-old, who's hitting .267/.341/.531 with 73 RBI and 73 runs scored overall.
