Description: Houston first baseman Matt Downs smacked a pair of home runs Wednesday in the Astros' 8-4 loss to San Diego. Downs, who finished with three hits, drove in all four of Houston's runs.
Insight: Downs (.191, 7 HRs, 13 RBIs) is starting to see a bit more playing time at first base now that Carlos Lee has been traded but it's probably still a bit of a stretch to call him "fantasy-worthy" at this point.

Insight: Downs has had increased playing time recently and has improved his hitting, but he is still more of a backup. At this time, Downs is considered a low-end option in NL-only formats.
