• Oswaldo Cabrera swipes base in victory on Sunday
    Oswaldo Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored as the Yankees topped the Red Sox on Sunday evening in New York.

    Advice: Cabrera led off the fourth inning with a double off of Red Sox starter Brayan Bello, then swiped third base with two outs and scored the game's first run on Jose Trevino's RBI single. The 23-year-old infielder has hit just .233/.301/.408 with four homers and 17 RBI through his first 133 plate appearances in the big leagues. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 8:18 pm

  • Aaron Judge doubles in victory over Red Sox Sunday
    Aaron Judge went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk as the Yankees triumphed over the Red Sox in a rain-shortened affair on Sunday night.

    Advice: Judge started out the home half of the first inning by lacing a 1-0 offering from Brayan Bello for a double to left field. He would wind up stranded at third base though. The 30-year-old superstar is now slashing .314/.421/.697 with 60 homers, 128 RBI and 16 stolen bases in what has been a truly remarkable season. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 8:17 pm

  • Rob Refsnyder collects lone hit, makes key error
    Rob Refsnyder went 1-for-2 with a double on Sunday night, collecting the Red Sox lone hit in a losing effort against the Yankees.

    Advice: Refsnyder broke up Nestor Cortes' no-hit bid with his two-out, two-bagger in the fourth inning. He also made an atrocious error in the sixth inning, dropping a routine fly ball that allowed the Yankees second run to score. He's now hitting .303/.378/.486 with five homers, 17 RBI and one stolen base in 164 plate appearances on the season. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 8:17 pm

  • Drury smacks 28th homer in blowout win Sunday
    Brandon Drury went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two RBI against the Rockies on Sunday.

    Advice: Drury was white-hot when the Padres traded for him at the training deadline. He quickly ordered a grand salami in his first game in San Diego but his bat went cold. However, the 30-year-old has put together a four-game hit streak as the Padres defeated the Rockies on Sunday. The Padres have a tough week as they look to secure their playoff spot as they face the Dodgers and White Sox next week at home in San Diego. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:23 pm

  • Juan Yepez collects two hits Sunday in loss to LAD
    Juan Yepez went 2-for-3 with a walk and run scored in a loss to the Dodgers Sunday.

    Advice: The Cardinals bats were pretty cold Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. They managed to connect with seven hits but one lone batter crossed home plate. Since being recalled on September 24, Yepez has been seeing regular playing time. He could be a sneaky pickup for fantasy managers in the last scoring period of the year.

  • Brown connects with 25th homer in loss to Mets
    Seth Brown went 1-for-3 with one run scored in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: The Athletics bats went cold as they faced future Hall of Famer Maz Scherzer Sunday. The only damage the A's could muster was a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth inning when they were already down by six runs. Brown has had an excellent season of the lowly A's and is hitting .233/.306/.458 with 25 bombs.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:34 pm

  • Varsho swipes 13th base in loss to Giants Sunday
    Daulton Varsho went 0-for-3 with a walk and his 13th stolen base in a loss to the Giants Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Digging deeper into Varsho's stats, the 26-year-old has some major flaws. He is an extreme pull-hitter and does most of his damage off right-handers. Fantasy managers can put their blinders on as Varsho as catcher eligibility next year but with how exciting the Arizona outfield is shaping up to be, dynasty managers could look to sell high over the winter.

  • Ronald Acuña Jr. (back) leads Braves past Phillies
    Ronald Acuña Jr. (back) hit a go-ahead RBI single and also walked on Sunday, leading the Braves to an 8-7 extra-inning victory over the Phillies.

    Advice: Acuña Jr. delivered a tie-breaking hit in the 11th inning of an extra-inning marathon, which also included a two-hour and nine-minute rain delay, after being held out of the Braves' starting lineup on Sunday for the fourth straight contest due to ongoing back tightness. He entered the contest in the eighth inning as a pinch-hitter and wound up being intentionally walked. The 24-year-old fantasy superstar has been available off the bench the last few games and should be ready to return sometime early this week against the Nationals. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 4:29 pm
