• George Springer continued his recent assault on Sunday, going 1-for-4 with his fourth home run in three games. After a fairly lackluster start, Springer has rewarded patient owners with gusto: He has a hit in all but three of his last 21 games, including each of his last seven, alongside 14 RBI. If there has been any false advertising, it's that Springer has only one stolen base, so he isn't the triple threat he was in the minors quite yet. But let's not be too picky. Springer has proved the last two weeks that he's a fantasy game-changer, and while he's gone in most competitive fantasy formats, he remains available in 41 percent of Yahoo! leagues. That needs to change, pronto.

• Drew Pomeranz lasted four innings against the Blue Jays on Sunday before leaving with the bases loaded and no outs in the top of the fifth. He allowed only two runs through four (Jim Johnson bailed him out in relief), and thus, his ERA and WHIP figures remains pretty glitzy, at 1.38 and 1.16, respectively. The former top prospect still isn't worth rolling out for every start -- remember, he posted a 6.23 ERA in limited time with the Rockies in 2013 -- but Pomeranz provides a good spot start this weekend against the Angels.
