Player Notes

  • José Abreu takes a breather Saturday vs Padres
    José Abreu is not in the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Padres in San Diego.

    Advice: It seems like a late-season breather for the White Sox veteran. While the over-the-fence power has not been a part of his game this year, the 35-year-old has produced quite well. He is hitting a respectable .304/.376/.444 with 84 runs and 75 RBI across 667 plate appearances. Andrew Vaughn will play first base and bat sixth against Mike Clevinger and the Padres.

  • Joey Meneses goes deep, Nationals crush Phillies
    Joey Meneses went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and four RBI, leading the Nationals to a 13-4 blowout victory over the Phillies in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Meneses delivered a bases-clearing three-run double in the second inning before taking Phillies starter Kyle Gibson deep for a solo shot -- his 13th round-tripper of the season -- in the fifth inning. The 30-year-old late-blooming sensation has hit an astronomical .332/.371/.590 with 13 homers and 33 RBI in 221 plate appearances over just 51 games since being called up by the Nationals back in early August.

  • Kyle Schwarber triples, steals base vs. Nationals
    Kyle Schwarber tripled and also stole a base in the Phillies' blowout loss to the Nationals in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Schwarber ripped a leadoff triple to right field and wound up being credited with a steal of home plate on a delayed double-steal later in the frame. The latest loss drops the Phillies back into a tie with the Brewers for the final NL Wild Card playoff spot. NBCSportsEDGE.com 10 minutes ago
  • Luis García homers in Nats' win over Phillies
    Luis García went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer and five RBI in the Nationals' win over the Phillies in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Advice: García did all of his damage in the late stages of the one-sided contest, hitting an RBI single in the seventh inning before tattooing a three-run shot -- his seventh long ball of the season -- off Phillies reliever Chris Devenski in the eighth inning. NBCSportsEDGE.com 11 minutes ago
  • Aníbal Sánchez goes five innings against Phillies
    Aníbal Sánchez was charged with four runs over five innings on Saturday in a win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Sánchez drew the starting assignment for the front end of Saturday's doubleheader against Philadelphia and got plenty of run support from the Nationals' offense to pull out a win. He struck out six batters and only issued three walks. The 38-year-old veteran right-hander finishes the 2022 campaign with a respectable 4.28 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 48/33 K/BB ratio across 69 1/3 innings (14 starts). NBCSportsEDGE.com 12 minutes ago
