Description: Mainers first baseman Justin Smoak has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.
Insight: Smoak was hitting well in the minors, .337 with 40 RBI in 56 games and a .924 OPS, but he hasn\'t been able to carry that success to the major league level. With the Mariners in a pennant race he probably won\'t get many opportunities to help fantasy owners.
Description: Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer (hand) has been activated from the disabled list.
Insight: This move makes it tough on management because Billy Butler has hit much better since he started playing in the field. The 24-year-old Hosmer is hitting .267 with just six homers, 46 RBI, 45 runs and a .689 OPS in 409 at-bats this season, not good enough for a fantasy first baseman.
