    • Dozier almost singlehandedly powered Wednesday's victory over the Brewers, going 3-for-4 with a double, a solo homer, a steal and two runs. Are we seeing another late surge from the veteran second baseman? He's now launched six homers in the last nine games, and fantasy owners certainly won't mind him chipping in with his first steal since June; he's now reached double digits in that category for the fifth straight season. Dozier's lingered in relative mediocrity for much of the year, but we've seen what it looks like when he goes on a heater. He should be locked into fantasy lineups across all formats right now.

    • Twins' Brian Dozier: Launches grand slam Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Dozier went 3-for-5 with two runs, a grand slam and five RBI during Tuesday's win over the Brewers. Dozier roped a go-ahead grand slam in the fourth inning to give the Twins a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 30-year-old hasn't been able to match his offensive production from last season, but with four home runs in his past five games, it's looking like Dozier is gearing up for a strong finish to the 2017 campaign.

    • Twins' Brian Dozier: Returns to lineup Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Dozier (illness) will start at second base and lead off Monday against the Brewers. Dozier exited in the sixth inning of Sunday's win over the Rangers upon falling ill, but after resting overnight, he'll be good to go for the start of the four-game series with Milwaukee. The Twins' table setter has connected on four home runs in his last six games, leaving fantasy owners to salivate over the possibility of another second-half power surge similar to the one he enjoyed in 2016.

    • Dozier (illness) should play Monday against Milwaukee according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Dozier exited Sunday's contest against Texas as a precaution, as he was dealing with dizziness and light-headedness. Head coach Paul Molitor said that he "didn't want to take any chances", which is what prompted the removal of the second baseman. Stay tuned for an update prior to Monday's series opener against the visiting Brewers.
