Rowdy Tellez went 1-for-2 with three walks and scored three runs on Wednesday as the Blue Jays beat the Orioles by an 11-10 score.

Fantasy Impact: Tellez finally had a patient night at the plate with the three walks as the slugger has been striking out at a career-high 28% this season. Don't expect this trend to continue and Tellez can be left on the waiver wire.

Fantasy Impact: Smoak has been disappointing this season hitting just .212. But the veteran first baseman has put up some decent power numbers with 20 home runs and 55 RBI over 111 games. Smoak is worth owning in AL-only formats.

Derek Law pitched 1 2/3 innings Saturday, allowing just two walks and striking out two to earn the save in a 7-5 win over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact: Law got an opportunity for the save with Ken Giles on the paternity list and out for a couple of games. Normally Law works in a setup role and will move back once Giles returns and is not worth adding in fantasy.
