First Basemen:

Standard:

James Loney, Rays:  This guy has always been gold for batting average chasers.  He is at it again, hitting .311 on the season.  If average is all you need, go get him.

Moderate:

C.J. Cron, Angels:  He is hitting .353 since his call up.  Ride him until he cools off.

Deep:

Ike Davis, Pirates: No, this is not a typo.  Ike is hitting .353 over the last two weeks since the Pirates have him playing exclusively against righties.  Their utilization techniques suggest that he might just be able to keep this up.  If not?  Well, you’re not out anything, since he is owned in less than two percent of leagues.

Second Basemen:

Standard:

Neil Walker, Pirates: Surprisingly enough, he is no longer owned in 100 percent of leagues.  If he is available, go get him.  He is hitting .306 over the last two weeks to bring his season average up to .265.

Moderate:

Dustin Ackley, Mariners: Ackley is starting to pick things up here lately.  He is hitting .282 over the last two weeks while earning regular playing time again.  He is worth playing unless he goes cold again.

Deep:

Mike Aviles, Indians: Aviles is guaranteed playing time with Jason Kipnis on the DL.  He has made the most of it so far, hitting .357 with Kipnis out.  Pick him up until he gets demoted.
