Line of the Day: Nick Hundley: August 16th, 2011

Catcher Nick Hundley went 3-for-4 with two triples, an RBI and two runs scored in the San Diego Padres 6-1 victory over the New York Mets. He became the 14th player in Padres history to hit two triples in a game and the first catcher to do so since Fred Kendall in 1973. (video recap)

Line: 4 AB | 2 R | 3 H | 1 RBI; 2 3B

My fantasy perspective: The 2011 season was supposed to be the year Hundley went from a backup/part-time catcher to the starter/primary catcher for the Padres but a couple of injuries have caused him to miss over two months of playing time.

Since returning from his latest DL stint (elbow surgery), Hundley has been absolutely on fire. In four games, he's gone 9-for-16 (.563 BA) with a double, two triples and a home run. If your team is in need of help at the catcher position, he's only owned in 3% of ESPN, 6% of Yahoo! and 15% of CBS leagues.
