Player Notes

  • Phils activate LHP Loup from 10-day DL
    Phillies activated LHP Aaron Loup from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: The Phillies now have 40 active players. Loup has been out for nearly a month with a left forearm strain, but he's ready to help out as the Phillies play out the string. The southpaw allowed two runs in two innings over four appearances after being acquired from the Blue Jays on July 31. 18 minutes ago
  • Yanks transfer Frazier to 60-day DL
    Yankees transferred OF Clint Frazier from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Justus Sheffield on the 40-man roster. Frazier recently had a setback with concussion symptoms and can now officially be ruled out for the remainder of the season. He'll hope for better luck on the health front in 2019. Today, 7:17 am
    60-Day DL
  • Yanks recall RHP German from Triple-A
    Yankees recalled RHP Domingo German from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: German owns a 5.68 ERA over 13 starts and six relief appearances this season, though he's shown some promise at times. He'll pitch out of the bullpen the rest of the way. Today, 7:10 am
  • Trevor Story dealing with elbow injury
    Trevor Story was pulled from Monday's game versus the Dodgers because of right elbow soreness.

    Advice: Story initially injured the elbow on a throw to first base following a diving play in the first inning and he pulled himself from the game after feeling pain when he swung and missed at a pitch in the fourth. He said after the game that he was unsure as to the severity of the injury. More should hopefully be known after he undergoes tests Tuesday. His fantasy owners are holding their breath. Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Arenado drives in 101st run in loss to LAD
    Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Arenado drove in his 101st run on the season on a single in the eighth inning to score Garrett Hampson and make the score 8-2 Dodgers. The third baseman has had an up-and-down September, but it's tough to complain too much about a line of .297/.377/.558 with 34 homers and the aforementioned 101 RBI in 143 games. Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Gray allows six over two innings in loss
    Jon Gray allowed six runs in just two innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Yikes. Gray just didn't have it in this one, allowing seven hits and two walks while striking out just one. Two of those hits were homers, and Gray's ERA balloons to 5.07 after the poor start. The analytics say that Gray has deserved better than that over his 163 1/3 innings, but it doesn't help you much. He'll try to rebound on Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Ryu strong over seven shutout innings in win
    Hyun-Jin Ryu hurled seven scoreless innings in a victory over the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: The Dodgers needed a strong start from Ryu, and boy did they ever get it. He scattered four hits, and he didn't walk anyone while striking out five. The left-hander had pitched well as of late while allowing a large number of hits. That wasn't the case on Monday. He now boasts a 2.18 ERA and impressive 78/13 K/BB ratio over 70 1/3 innings accumulated over 13 starts. We'll see Ryu back on the mound on Sunday against the Padres. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Longoria hits 16th homer in win over Padres
    Evan Longoria hit a two-run homer in a win over the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: The homer was off of Bryan Mitchell, and it was a two-run shot that gave Longoria 16 blasts on the season and 52 RBI. It's been a terrible first year in San Francisco for the long-time Tampa Bay Rays third baseman, with a .249/.289/.429 slash over 114 games. It's tough to call him an option as anything more than a bench option in mixed redraft formats. Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Shaw has three hits in win over Padres
    Chris Shaw went 3-for-3 with a double and run scored in a victory over the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: Shaw's two doubles are the first two of the season, and the first of his MLB career. Shaw has shown some offensive potential in the minors, but it's been a slow start to his MLB career with a .207 average and .629 OPS over 29 at-bats. Shaw could be a bench option for the Giants next year, but it's tough to see him becoming a regular at this point. Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Smith picks up 13th save on Monday
    Will Smith hurled a scoreless ninth on Monday to give him his 13th save of the year against the Padres.

    Advice: Smith didn't strike anyone out, but the Padres were aggressive and he was able to get out of the inning with just 14 pitches. The scoreless inning lowers his ERA to 1.80 on the season, and he's 13-for-16 in save chances with 66 strikeouts over an even 50 innings pitched. Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Suarez pitches into eighth in win over Padres
    Andrew Suarez allowed just two runs on four hits over 7 2/3 innings in a victory over the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: Suarez allowed a solo homer to Austin Hedges, but outside of that, he limited the hard contact against the (bad) Padres lineup while walking two and striking out three. Suarez has been one of the bright spots for the Giants this year, and while he's never going to miss enough bats to be an elite pitcher, done enough -- with the exception of a few clunkers -- to suggest he can be a long-term option. He'll take a 4.24 ERA into his next start on Sunday against the Cardinals. Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Sampson allows two runs in loss to Rays
    Adrian Sampson allowed two runs over five innings in a loss to the Rays on Monday.

    Advice: Sampson surrendered six hits, including a solo homer to Ji-Man Choi in the sixth inning. He struck out a pair of batters and only issued one walk. The 26-year-old right-hander turned in a quality start, but got zero support from the Rangers offense in this one. He's 0-2 with a 4.09 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio in three appearances (two starts) since being called up from Triple-A Round Rock earlier this month. He’ll face the Mariners at home in his next start on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Pollock hits homer in loss to Cubs
    A.J. Pollock went 1-for-4 with a homer on Monday in a loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: The homer had zero significance on the game, as it came with the Diamondbacks trailing 5-0 in the ninth inning off of Kyle Hendricks. He now has 18 homers on the season, and he also adds his 60th RBI in 104 games with the Diamondbacks in 2018. Unfortunately, his average and on-base percentage -- .260 and .319, respectively -- leave a lot to be desired. It's fair to call this a disappointing season for Pollock. Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Sergio Romo records 22nd save
    Sergio Romo fired a scoreless ninth inning to record his 22nd save of the year against the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Romo was summoned to preserve a three-run lead in the ninth inning and worked around a two-out walk to slam the door on the Rangers. He struck out a pair of batters in the frame. The 35-year-old veteran righty has allowed only five runs in 22 appearances since the All-Star break. He's 3-3 with a 3.30 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 69/19 K/BB ratio in 68 appearances (five starts). Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Zobrist has two hits, doubles in win
    Ben Zobrist went 2-for-4 with a double in a win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Zobrist's double is the 27th of the season. There are lots of offensive stalwarts in the Chicago lineup, but Zobrist seems to get overlooked. He shouldn't be. The two hits up his season average to .314, and his OPS of .841 shows that he gets on via walk while putting the ball into the gaps and occasionally over the wall (nine homers in 127 games). You can do a lot worse. Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Baez hits 32nd homer in Chicago victory
    Javier Baez hit his 32nd homer of the season in a victory over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Baez walloped a Patrick Corbin offering in the sixth inning to give the Cubs a 3-0 lead, and the two RBI bring his total up to 105 this season. He's now slashing an outstanding .294/.328/.568 to go along with those 32 homers and RBI, and he's added 21 steals in his 555 at-bats this year. An excellent season for the 25-year-old infielder, and that's an understatement. Yesterday, 9:43 pm

  • Mallex Smith posts two hits in win over Texas
    Mallex Smith went 2-for-3 with a run scored in the Rays' win over the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Smith led off the contest by reaching on an infield single and came around to score a run later in the frame. He also singled in the third inning, walked in the sixth and was caught stealing for the 12th time this year. The 25-year-old outfielder has put together an impressive breakout campaign, hitting .302/.372/.414 with 56 runs scored, two homers, 36 RBI and 33 steals in 488 plate appearances. Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Corbin fans seven over six in loss to Cubs
    Patrick Corbin fanned seven hitters while allowing three runs over six innings in a loss to the Cubs on Monday.

    Advice: Corbin was mostly solid on Monday, but a three-run sixth inning that was highlighted by a two-run shot by Javier Baez combined with Kyle Hendricks' excellent start gave him the loss. The seven strikeouts give the southpaw 237 in 192 innings, giving him a strong chance to finish the year with a 250 strikeout year. He'll take a 3.09 ERA and 1.03 WHIP into his next start against the Rockies on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Adam Conley nets third save
    Adam Conley worked a scoreless ninth inning to record his third save of the year Monday in the Marlins' win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Conley was summoned to protect a three-run lead in the ninth inning and needed just 13 pitches to slam the door on the Nationals. The 28-year-old southpaw struck out Wilmer Difo to begin the frame before getting Mark Reynolds and Matt Wieters to fly out to center field. There aren't a ton of save opportunities in Miami, but it wouldn't be shocking to see the remaining ones divided up between Drew Steckenrider and Conley based on matchups over the final two weeks. Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Sierra notches a pair of RBI, steal in win
    Magneuris Sierra went 1-for-3 with a pair of RBI and a stolen base in the Marlins' win over the Nationals on Monday.

    Advice: Sierra delivered a game-tying two-run single against Nationals reliever Jimmy Cordero in the sixth inning. He also swiped second base, his second steal of the year, later in the frame. The 22-year-old outfielder has looked completely overmatched against big-league pitching, hitting .178/.205/.195 in 125 plate appearances this year, but remains an intriguing long-term asset in fantasy formats.
