• Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Derrek Lee enjoyed his return to the NL Monday, homering twice for his new team. Lee, hitting cleanup in front of fellow weekend acquisition Ryan Ludwick (he was 0-for-3) while Andrew McCutchen returned to leadoff duties, hit six home runs for the Baltimore Orioles in July with 19 RBIs, so his power has been trending up. The Pirates -- and NL-only owners -- are pleased to see it. Lee is owned in 43.4 percent of leagues.
