Line of the Day: May 12th, 2011

OF Carlos Beltran of the New York Mets went 3-for-5 with three home runs and six RBI in a 9-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies. It was the first time in his career that Beltran hit three homers in a game and became the eighth Mets player ever to do so.

Line: 5 AB, 3 R, 3 H, 6 RBI; 3 HR

My fantasy perspective: Beltran looks to be healthy again and is thriving with the bat (.295/.387/.590, 8 HR, 24 RBI, 21 Runs). He has no stolen bases (or even attempts), so double-digit steals are probably a part of his game he'll never get back. Beltran is currently the 43rd-ranked player on ESPN (203.3 ADP) and 41st-ranked on Yahoo! (180.5 ADP) and looking like a steal for owners that took a chance on him late in their drafts. I, for one, am hoping he stays healthy in 2011 and beyond.
