Sam Fuld OF MIN 12 Days

Sam Fuld reached base three times for the third consecutive game on Thursday against Seattle.

He finished 1-for-2 with two walks, a steal and a run scored. Fuld doesn't want to leave Seattle. He went 5-for-10 (.500) with four walks, a homer, three steals, two RBI and three runs scored as the Twins took three of four. If you need a center fielder in your AL-only league, Fuld is probably your best free agent bet at the moment. He won't keep raking like this -- he's hit safely in nine of 10 -- but Fuld will draw the occasional walk and steal bases as long as he's in the lineup.

Sam Fuld reached base three times, drove in a run and scored another in Wednesday's 8-1 blowout at Seattle's expense.

He finished 1-for-2 with a pair of walks. Fuld is 13-for-29 (.448) over his past nine games, and he's accrued a multi-hit game in four of his last seven. He doesn't have the tools to be a consistent contributor in even AL-only leagues, but he can be started by those without better options in that format as long as he's hot and receiving everyday at-bats.

Sam Fuld singled twice, homered and swiped two bases in Tuesday's 2-0 win against the Mariners.

Fuld failed to reel in Michael Saunders' round tripper on Monday, but he made up for it a day later, taking Chris Young over the right field fence in the fifth inning. Fuld finished 3-for-3 as a one-man wrecking crew. He's hit safely in seven of his last eight games to raise his batting average from .214 to .253. Fuld has enough speed to be usable in AL-only formats when he's starting -- tonight's steals were his ninth and 10th in 45 games -- but he doesn't make consistent contact, and rarely lifts the ball when he does. This was only his seventh career round-tripper.
