Gausman was just tagged for five earned runs against the Tampa Bay Rays and the team decided to send him down to the minors temporarily to work on his control. However, he will be called back very soon and likely won't even miss a start. Gausman is the face of the team's rotation and is worth locking as soon as possible.

After years of hype, Eaton has finally come alive with his bat. He hit .309 this June with an amazing .391 OBP. He also scored 19 runs and drive in 14 more. Eaton is finally living up to his potential and will be worth a look as a OF3 from here on out.

Duda may not play everyday, but he continues to hit for power in New York. Duda has already crushed 12 home runs this year and he has even added four home runs with 10 RBIs in the last 11 games alone. Duda is finally maturing into a reliable fantasy option.

The rapid decline of Rickie Weeks has helped Gennett sneak into the lineup more regularly. Sure he still sits against lefties, but he is currently throttling right-handers. Gennett is hitting .338 off righties and quietly racked up two home runs with seven RBIs last week. The youngster will be worth a look in all formats this week.

In Triple-A Pawtucket, Betts posted an impressive .322 batting average through 23 games with a .425 OBP. The utility man continued his torrid pace, and as a result, he quickly earned a promotion to the bigs. Boston obviously called up the youngster to play, so fantasy fans should expect him to contribute immediately. Add the youngster now before it’s too late.
