Player Notes

  • 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
  • Yankees officially promote Justus Sheffield
    Yankees purchased the contract of LHP Justus Sheffield from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Sheffield, 22, has finally arrived in the big leagues after compiling a 2.48 ERA and 123/50 K/BB ratio in 116 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season. The top prospect will join the Yankees' bullpen for now, but he should prepare as a starter next spring. It should be a fun sneak preview, at the very least. Today, 7:11 am
  • 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
  • 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
  • Pederson homers twice, Dodgers rout Rockies
    Joc Pederson homered twice while going 3-for-4 with three RBI in an 8-2 win over the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: He also doubled. Pederson hit a leadoff homer against an awful Jon Gray in the first, and he homered again off of Harrison Musgrave to extend the Dodgers' lead to 8-0. The pair of blasts give the outfielder 23 homers on the season, and the three RBI give him 53 over his 137 games. Pederson is a flawed player, but the power is legit, and that makes him at least fantasy relevant in deeper formats. Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • Hedges hits solo homer in loss to Giants
    Austin Hedges hit a solo homer in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: The homer came in the second off of Andrew Suarez, and it's the 14th round-tripper of the season for the backstop. Hedges doesn't walk and he's hitting just .245, but the power is legit, and makes him relevant as long as he's a catcher. There's no reason to think he won't be a catcher anytime soon. Yesterday, 10:09 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
  • Glasnow spins six shutout innings vs. Rangers
    Tyler Glasnow whiffed six batters over six shutout innings in a win over the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Glasnow scattered a pair of singles over six scoreless frames. He was in complete control of his electric arsenal, issuing just a pair of walks in the contest. He was also extremely efficient, throwing 49 of 86 pitches for strikes in this one. The 25-year-old right-hander owns a 1-4 record with a 4.06 ERA and 49/14 K/BB ratio in nine starts since being acquired from the Pirates on July 31. He’ll face the Blue Jays on the road in his next start on Saturday. 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
  • 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
  • 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
    New Player Note
    Javier Báez ChC - 2B,3B,SS
  • 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
  • Kris Bryant hits first homer since July
    Kris Bryant went 2-for-3 with a homer and walk in a victory over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Bryant stays hot, and his solo homer off of Randall Delgado is the 12th of the season for the former MVP in 92 games. While he's hit for a high average, this is the first homer for Bryant since he came off the disabled list with his shoulder injury, and the first since July 20. Expect to see Bryant to continue to get stronger as the season finishes, and put a few more balls over the fence over these final two weeks. Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Ji-Man Choi homers in win over Rangers
    Ji-Man Choi went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a pair of RBI in the Rays' 3-0 win over the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Choi opened up the scoring with an RBI single to right field in the first inning and tattooed a solo homer, his 10th of the year, in the sixth inning. The 27-year-old slugger has gone deep five times in 14 games this month. He's an intriguing speculative pickup for fantasy owners in search of a power source in deeper mixed leagues over the final two weeks of the regular season. Yesterday, 9:37 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
  • Rougned Odor swipes 12th base in loss
    Rougned Odor went 0-for-3 with a stolen base in the Rangers' loss to the Rays on Monday.

    Advice: Odor was hit by a pitch and swiped second base, his 12th of the year, against Rays starter Tyler Glasnow in the first inning. The Rangers offense managed just two hits against four Tampa Bay pitchers in the shutout loss. The 24-year-old second baseman is hitting .257/.330/.443 with 73 runs scored, 18 homers, 63 RBI and 12 steals in 493 plate appearances. Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Erick Fedde strikes out six in no-decision
    Erick Fedde yielded two runs on two hits over 4 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision against the Marlins.

    Advice: Fedde retired 11 of the first 14 batters he faced to open the contest before serving up back-to-back walks to begin the fifth inning and a two-run double to Starlin Castro, which chased him from the contest, later in the frame. The 25-year-old right-hander struck out six batters and also issued four walks. He struggled with efficiency in this one, throwing just 51 of 93 pitches for strikes and didn’t last long enough to qualify for a win. He’s 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA in three starts since being recalled from Triple-A Syracuse earlier this month. He’s 2-3 with an uninspiring 5.02 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 41/17 K/BB ratio in nine big-league starts this year. He’ll face the Mets at home in his next start on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Anthony Rendon homers in second straight game
    Anthony Rendon went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Nationals' loss to the Marlins on Monday.

    Advice: Rendon blasted a two-run homer, his 21st of the year, off Marlins starter Trevor Richards in the third inning and notched his second consecutive three hit-effort. He also singled and scored a run in the second and singled in the sixth. He's been on an absolute tear at the plate, hitting .349 (22-for-63) with three homers and 11 RBI in 16 games this month. The 28-year-old third baseman is hitting .304/.369/.520 with 81 runs scored, 21 homers, 77 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 548 plate appearances. Yesterday, 9:05 pm
