Twins | Max Kepler keeps up July HR barrage

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:52:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler went 1-for-3 with his 10th home run of the season Wednesday, July 20, opposite the Detroit Tigers. The long ball produced his lone run scored and RBI in the contest, and he also drew a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Remarkably, that's now seven homers in July for the rookie, as he previously only had three entering the month. Although he also owns a discouraging .229/.309/.488 slash line for the season, Kepler is someone who should probably be on the radar in deep leagues, if only for his power and nothing else. He's also getting at-bats in Minnesota's heart of the batting order.

Twins | Max Kepler goes deep again

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 15:17:32 -0700

Minnesota Twins rookie OF Max Kepler provided the only offense for his team on Sunday, July 17, versus the Cleveland Indians, sending a solo shot deep into the right-field seats for his sixth home run this month.

Fantasy Tip: Kepler's six homers and 19 RBI in 13 games this month are both major-league best totals. Both marks are made all the more impressive by the fact he is hitting only .196 in July. While he obviously has some work to do in terms of consistency, Kepler has already shown he is worth of being added and started in deeper leagues.

Twins | Max Kepler driving in plenty of runs

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 13:28:13 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler has 19 runs, eight home runs, 31 RBI and two stolen bases with a .252/.331/.553 slash line over his past 28 games. His 31 RBI are second in the league to only Toronto Blue Jays 3B Edwin Encarnacion (32) over the past 30 days.

Fantasy Tip: Kepler has worked his way into a full-time role in right field for the Twins, and he also appears to have climbed into a permanent spot in the five-hole of the lineup. He's worth owning and starting in all fantasy formats given his excellent current form and pedigree as a high-end prospect.

Twins | Max Kepler drives in three runs

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 23:56:48 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler homered and drove in three runs Thursday, July 7, in a 10-1 win over the Texas Rangers. Kepler has four homers in his last six games and a slugging percentage of .492.

Fantasy Tip: Kepler also has a batting average close to .250 and he seems to be heating up in the past week or so. He remains a low-cost option in daily formats and a sleeper option in regular leagues. His value in those leagues will go up the more often he plays the outfield.

Twins | Max Kepler continues to rake

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 23:52:06 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored Tuesday, July 5, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Kepler is enjoying a power surge in the month of July, posting three homers and 10 RBIs in five games, including at least one RBI in each of the past four outings. He is still only worth using in AL-only fantasy formats and as a mid-tier DFS option while running hot.

Twins | Max Kepler explodes for seven RBI

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 14:40:57 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler belted two three-run home runs and set a club rookie record with seven RBI in a 17-5 rout of the Texas Rangers on Saturday, July 02.

Fantasy Tip: Kepler entered the day with three homers and 15 RBI in 37 contests, so one could say this was a coming-out party of sorts. The 23-year-old native of Berlin made a rare appearance batting out of the fifth spot and obviously made his case for remaining there behind new cleanup hitter Brian Dozier. Kepler has at least one hit in 15 of his last 17 games and needs to be monitored in mixed leagues. He should already be on a roster in most deep-mixed or AL-only leagues.

Twins | Max Kepler extends hit streak

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:59:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler went 1-for-3 with a pair of RBIs Wednesday, June 22, against the Philadelphia Phillies to push his hitting streak to eight games. He also recorded a stolen base.

Fantasy Tip: Kepler's regular playing time might be coming to a close once Miguel Sano is healthy enough to return. However, he remains a solid short-term AL-only fantasy option until Sano officially makes it back.

Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, two RBI and three runs scored in a 7-4 win over the New York Yankees Sunday, June 19.

Minnesota Twins OF Max Kepler hit his first career home run, a three-run, game-winner, in the 10th inning against the Boston Red Sox Sunday, June 12.
