Baltimore Orioles designated hitter/third baseman Renato Nunez had a great day at the plate in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Yankees, going 5-for-5 with four singles, a double, and two RBI. The 25-year-old has been useful in fantasy at times this season but is hitting just .204 with one home run and five RBI in August. This big game may be what he needs to get going again and if he does, fantasy players should be quick to notice, as he has been one of baseball's streakiest hitters.
Baltimore Orioles designated hitter Renato Nunez (ankle) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Houston Astros. Nunez left Saturday's game after fouling a ball off his ankle. Luckily, the X-rays came back negative, so Nunez will only be sidelined a few days at most. Chance Sisco will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh versus righty Justin Verlander. Sisco is not a reliable fantasy option for this one.
Baltimore Orioles third baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez closed out a strong July in Tuesday's 8-5 win over the Padres. Nunez went 2-for-5 with two singles, two RBI, and a strikeout. The 25-year-old has swung a hot bat all July, hitting .304 with seven home runs and 19 RBI. He has shown his power potential all season long as well as an ability to hit in streaks, but this month shows that he could carry his productivity over a longer stretch. Nunez is worth a roster spot in most leagues at this point.
