• Joins 40/40 club
    Acuna went 2-for-4 with a double, home run, one RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 9-6 win over Washington.

    Advice: Acuna joined an elite club when he led off the game with a 379-foot solo shot off Patrick Corbin for his 40th homer of the season. He joins just four other players (Jose Canseco, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez and Alfonso Soriano) in the history books as the only players to hit 40 homers and swipe 40 bags in the same season. Acuna continues his MVP-caliber season and is slashing .337/.415/.597 with 40 homers, 68 steals, 143 runs and 101 RBI over 710 plate appearances. Rotowire.com 4 minutes ago
  • Shaky in loss
    Glasnow (9-7) took the loss Friday, allowing four runs on three hits and four walks over 5.1 innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out seven.

    Advice: Glasnow struggled with his command Friday night as he issued four walks, equaling a season-high last registered on June 14 against Oakland. Since returning from a back injury on Aug. 14, the 30-year-old pitcher has made eight starts, going 4-4 with a 4.46 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 57:14 K:BB over 46.1 innings. Glasnow looks to bounce back in his final start of the season, currently scheduled to be at Toronto. Rotowire.com 16 minutes ago

  • Roughed up by Rangers
    Miller (8-6) allowed six runs on six hits and a walk over 4.1 innings Friday, striking out two and taking a loss against Texas.

    Advice: Most of the damage against Miller came in the first two innings when he allowed a solo shot to Corey Seager and a three-run homer to Evan Carter. Miller had given up just one home run over his previous eight starts. During that stretch, he posted a strong 2.98 ERA and 38:7 K:BB over 42.1 frames. Miller's season ERA climbed to 4.17 through 127.1 innings. He's currently lined up for a home matchup with the Astros next week. Rotowire.com 21 minutes ago
  • Pops first homer
    Mead went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-2 loss against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Mead hit his first career home run in the seventh inning with a 337-foot liner off Blue Jays' starter Chris Bassitt. The 22-year-old rookie has struggled to see much playing time during the Rays' playoff push as he's received only five starts and 21 plate appearances since being recalled Sept. 12. Mead is slashing .281/.359/.421 in 64 big-league plate appearances. Rotowire.com 29 minutes ago

  • Fans seven in no-decision
    Abbott (8-5) did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks over 4.1 innings in a 7-5 loss against the Pirates. He struck out seven.

    Advice: Abbott mostly cruised through the first three innings before serving up a solo homer to Ke'Bryan Hayes in the top of the fourth and an additional solo shot to Henry Davis in the top of the fifth. The rookie left-hander still managed to generate a lot of whiffs and will carry a respectable 3.70 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 119:44 K:BB into his final regular-season start next week at Cleveland.

    Advice: Bednar is now up to 37 saves on the year, which is tied for the NL lead and trails only Emmanuel Clase (42) on the overall MLB leaderboard. The 28-year-old right-hander has delivered a terrific 2.08 ERA with 75 strikeouts across 65 total innings of work this season for the Pirates. Rotowire.com 41 minutes ago
