Line of the Day: May 11th, 2011

OF Rajai Davis of the Toronto Blue Jays went 4-for-4 with two RBI, two runs scored and two stolen bases in a 9-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox. The four hits against Boston tied a career high. He's now tied for the American League lead in stolen bases with 11.

Line: 4 AB, 2 R, 4 H, 2 RBI; 2 SB

My fantasy perspective: Davis is 12-for-43 (.279) in the 11 games played since returning from an ankle injury that caused him to mis 16 games. He has 10 stolen bases over that span, as well. More amazingly, the 10 stolen bases have come in just five of those games. When Davis runs, he runs in bunches. He's owned in 80% of ESPN leagues but only 46% of Yahoo! leagues. How does such a disparity happen? Check your league's waivers to see if he's available, but don't get your hopes up if your league has any value to it at all. Davis' fantasy value comes from his speed and being on base, so hope his .269 OBP rises quickly to at least his career OBP of .325, if not beyond.
