Line of the Day: April 19th, 2011

3B/OF Ryan Roberts of the Arizona Diamondbacks was 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, 2 runs scored and a stolen base in the D'Backs 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds. It was Roberts' second career multi-homer game.

Line: 3 AB, 2 R, 2 H, 3 RBI; BB, HR, SB

Fantasy perspective: When given the opportunity this season, Roberts is producing. He currently sports a healthy 5x5 line of .382/7/4/10/2 but has only started eight of the D'Backs first 15 games. He's made appearances defensively at 2B (1), 3B (7) and SS (1) to go along with his OF eligibility, so there should be opportunities to get him at-bats and you have to wonder how long Melvin Mora will stay in the mix. He's widely available in ESPN leagues (1.8% owned) and Yahoo! leagues (7%), so there's no rush to make a decision on him but worth keeping an eye on his playing time.
