Insight: Dominguez has a .295 average and an .800 OPS against lefties this season, compared to a .209 average and a .580 OPS against righties. He's also gone 3-for-5 with two homers against White Sox left-hander John Danks.

Description: Houston third baseman Matt Dominguez is not normally on many fantasy radar screens, but he's faced Texas ace Yu Darvish 11 times and has taken him deep three times.
Insight: Dominguez is an all or nothing option. He doesn't hit for much of an average, but can hit the long ball. He's batting just .129 in 10 games this season, but does have a pair of homers after blasting 21 last season.

Description: Houston third baseman Matt Dominguez had a monster day at the plate Sunday against the Angels. He went 4-for-5 with a homer, three RBI and two runs.
Insight: Dominguez is hitting just .237 with a .665 OPS, but his 16 homers and 60 RBI are useful for NL-only owners who only have Matt Carpenter, Pedro Alvarez, Chris Johnson, Hanley Ramirez, Martin Prado, Ryan Zimmerman, Pablo Sandoval and the injured David Wright to work with at third base.
 
7/31/2013 10:38:00 PM
Description: Houston third baseman Matt Dominguez filled up the stat sheet Wednesday in a win against the Orioles.
Insight: Dominguez slammed four hits in the contest including his 14th jack of the season. The 23-year-old leads the team in RBI (54) and is second in home runs. Still, his fantasy value is hindered by his low batting average (.236).

Description: Astros third baseman Matt Dominguez is just 1-for-8 versus Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo.
Insight: Dominguez has been hot this week, batting .333 in his last six games, but this isn't a good matchup. Even when there is a decent matchup, make sure to only use him at home where he is hitting .298 with eight home runs, 27 RBI and an .871 OPS.

Description: Astros third baseman Matt Dominguez went 2-for-3 with a homer and five RBI Tuesday against Milwaukee.
