Torii Hunter (Angels) - (4 HR, 11 H, 10 R, 10 RBI, .500 BA)

Hunter has 11 hits in his last five games while unleashing some power behind the bat lately for some home runs. The Angels have benefitted form Hunter's strong play as of late, as the 36-year-old veteran holds a batting average of .272 with 25 RBIs for the season. His recent hot streak makes him a sufficient pick during the later rounds in the draft.

Jason Kubel (Diamondbacks) - (2 HR, 9 H, 6 R, 12 RBI, .409 BA)

Kubel has been productive for the Diamondbacks since the start of the season. The left fielder holds a season batting average of .299 with 36 RBIs and 6 homers. Lately he's been a force at the plate, grabbing 9 hits in his last four games. Last week Kubel was able to chart a 5 RBI night against the Rockies, showcasing his recent surge heading into mid-June.

Colby Rasmus (Blue Jays) - (2 HR, 11 H, 7 R, 7 RBI, .379 BA)

Toronto's young center fielder is slowly bringing up his season batting average of .248 with each at bat lately. Rasmus had a slow start to the season but is having some better at-bats during the month of June. Colby has 8 total home runs this season and is worth a look when looking for a few hits at a lower price.

Russell Martin (Yankees) - (4 HR, 7 H, 4 R, 8 RBI, .368 BA)

Martin is having a great start to the month of June with scattered home runs and RBIs in the past two weeks. The Yanks' catcher recently had 2 homers and 3 RBIs on Sunday against the Mets, bumping his low batting average to .216 for the season. Martin has a total of 20 RBIs and 8 homers so far this year, which aren't terrible numbers as a catcher with plenty of games left to the season.

Seth Smith (Athletics) - (1 HR, 11 H, 3 R, 5 RBI, .550 BA)

The Oakland left fielder isn't a household name quite yet, but has been consistent lately for the fantasy sharps. Smith had a season-low batting average of .198 on April 20th, but has been able to slap some hits to bump it to up to .259 heading into mid-June. Seth has 7 hits in his last four games and can become a productive draft pick with his recent hitting streak.

Michael Bourn (Braves) - (1 HR, 13 H, 5 R, 4 RBI, .500 BA)

Bourn has been much more reliable lately for Atlanta, with a current 9-game hitting streak heading into June 11th.

Bourn currently holds a batting average of .323 with 83 total hits during the regular season.
