Line of the Day: May 28th, 2011

Chris Iannetta of the Colorado Rockies homered twice and drove in six runs in the Rockies' 15-4 rout of the St. Louis Cardinals. It was Iannetta's first career multi-homer game and the six RBI were a single-game high for him, as well.

Line: 5 AB, 2 R, 4 H, 6 RBI; 2 HR

My fantasy perspective: Iannetta's four hits helped raise his season's batting average to just .242 but the two home runs gave him seven for the season and puts him on pace for 22 this year. His seven home runs are tied for third-most among all catchers. Over the last 30 days he's appeared in 23 games and is hitting .291 (23/79) with five home runs and 15 RBI.

Fantasy owners want Iannetta to be better but his ownership numbers prove they have no faith what they are seeing is for real. Owned in just 14.4% of ESPN and 23% of Yahoo! leagues, Iannetta deserves a long look if your team is reeling from the loss of Buster Posey.
