Dozier went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs Saturday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier crushed his 13th homer of the season off Cody Allen to break up a tie game and the lead the Twins to a road victory. With his slugging percentage down nearly 90 points from last year, he's been a weak fantasy option with a .254/.343/.453 slash line.

Dozier is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier will sit for the first time since May 9, when he was sidelined due to an ankle injury. With four hits in 20 at-bats over his last five starts, Dozier should benefit from the full two days of rest, as the Twins are off the schedule Monday before opening a series with the White Sox the following day. Eduardo Escobar will cover the keystone with Dozier out while shortstop Jorge Polanco moves up to the leadoff spot.

Dozier went 2-for-8 with his 12th home run as the Twins lost both games of a doubleheader Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier has started to heat up in June as he's hitting .286 with three home runs in his last seven games. He's now tied with Starlin Castro for the most home runs among second baseman.

Dozier went 2-for-5 with a double, a homer, two RBI and two runs in Tuesday's 20-7 whipping of the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

He's been rolling along in style lately, going 12-for-31 (.387) with three homers and seven RBI over the course of his current eight-game hitting streak. Dozier's power has predictably fallen off from last year's ridiculous pace, but no fantasy owner should have drafted him with the expectation of another 40-homer campaign. Still, he's on track to hit 30 long balls and steal more than 20 bases, making him a hugely valuable fantasy contributor if you can stomach his mediocre-at-best batting average.

Dozier was 0-for-4 and struck out three times Sunday during the Twins' 3-2 loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier's batting average fell nearly 20 points in the span of a week. He is 6-for-38 in that span, and his slash line after Sunday reads .236/.330/.404. The 30-year-old's playing time is not in jeopardy, but it's most likely his results, especially in the power department, will not mirror the stats he put up the previous two seasons.

Dozier went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 17-6 loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

He's starting to pick up the pace in the power department, hitting three homers with seven RBI in his last eight games. Dozier's .249/.346/.432 remains disappointing compared to his 2016 performance, but he still has plenty of time to pad those numbers.

Dozier went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and two walks Saturday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier launched his seventh bomb of the season to break open a 2-2 tie, leading to a home victory. After crushing 42 homers in 2016, his .442 slugging percentage isn't what fantasy owners were hoping for when paying up for him on draft day.

Dozier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The home run was Dozier's sixth of the season, and came off of Baltimore ace Dylan Bundy. He hasn't put up the power numbers that fantasy owners are accustomed to seeing, but he's still capable of driving in runs and swiping a base. Dozier remains a valuable fantasy asset for his upside across multiple categories.

Dozier went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

He did his job from the leadoff spot, and Dozier's .359 OBP and 13.4 percent walk rate on the season would both be career highs if he can maintain that pace. On the downside it doesn't look like the 30-year-old is going to repeat last year's 42-homer barrage, as he has only five through 31 games, but with six steals to go with them he still seems set to deliver his second career 20-20 campaign.

Dozier went 1-for-3 with a walk and was caught stealing for the fifth time during Sunday's loss to Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier also went 0-for-2 in stolen base attempts Saturday, which drops him to an underwhelming 6-for-11 this season. It wouldn't be surprising to see him be more conservative on the base paths in the immediate future, and especially with the emerging power due of Miguel Sano and Kennys Vargas driving in runs in bunches of late. With just 16 runs, five home runs, 11 RBI and a .237/.343/.407 slash line, Dozier is well off the pace of his career-best showing last season.
