Reds outfielder Scott Schebler homered for the third consecutive game Monday and over the past month nobody in baseball has hit more. It's not really a fluke, either. Schebler hit for power in the minors and this isn't a case of someone selling out hitting a ton of fly balls. He's making hard contact. Schebler remains available in more than half of ESPN's standard leagues and could be on the way to 30 blasts.

Joe Maddon figured if today wasn't a day to play Albert Almora Jr then when would there be a good one? With the Cubs facing a lefty and fly ball pitcher John Lackey on the mound for them he felt it was right to have Almora in there over Ian Happ.
