Player Notes

  • 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
  • Yadi Molina homers, drives in three vs. ATL
    Yadier Molina homered and talling three total RBI Monday in the Cardinals' win over the Braves.

    Advice: Molina drove home the first run of the night on a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch in the top of the first inning and he capped off a big 11-6 victory for St. Louis with a two-run shot off Arodys Vizcaino in the top of the ninth. The home run was the 18th of the season for Molina, who's slashing .270/.323/.445 in 113 games at age 36. Yesterday, 8:35 pm
  • Stallings pokes walk-off RBI single vs. KC
    Jacob Stallings hit a walk-off RBI single Monday in the Pirates' 7-6 win over the Royals.

    Advice: Stallings finished the night 3-for-5 with three singles -- none bigger than his game-winning poke to left field in the bottom of the ninth. The 28-year-old catcher is still batting .250/.286/.250 just in 12 total games this season at the major league level. Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • Danny Jansen slugs second MLB home run
    Danny Jansen slugged his second major league home run on Monday night against the Orioles.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the top of the second inning off O's right-hander Evan Phillips. Jansen owns a decent .779 OPS through his first 23 big league games. Yesterday, 7:06 pm
  • Tomas Nido to see more playing time
    Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Monday that Tomas Nido has earned more playing time down the stretch.

    Advice: Nido is hitting just .250/.250/.458 this month, but the defensive-minded catcher has apparently impressed his skipper with his work behind the plate. He doesn't have any fantasy value. Yesterday, 2:56 pm
  • Francisco Cervelli (illness) scratched Monday
    Francisco Cervelli was scratched from the Pirates' lineup Monday because of the flu.

    Advice: He should be fine in a day or two. Jacob Stallings will catch. Yesterday, 2:06 pm
  • Mitch Garver still has concussion symptoms
    Mitch Garver is still experiencing concussion symptoms and will miss a fifth straight start Monday.

    Advice: Garver took a foul tip off the mask last Wednesday and hasn't played since. In fact, he hadn't even been sitting in the dugout until Sunday. It doesn't appear that his return is imminent. Willians Astudillo and Chris Gimenez have been handling the catching duties for the Twins in Garver's absence. Yesterday, 1:53 pm
  • Chance Sisco still in concussion protocol
    Chance Sisco is still in concussion protocol and unavailable to play Monday.

    Advice: Sisco left Sunday's game against the White Sox after taking a foul tip to the mask. He also suffered a laceration on his chin in addition to a possible concussion. Yesterday, 1:47 pm
  • Francisco Mejia clobbers walk-off grand slam
    Francisco Mejia played the role of hero on Sunday, clobbering a walk-off grand slam to propel the Padres to a 7-3 victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: The Padres entered the ninth inning trailing 3-2, but an RBI double by Freddy Galvis knotted things up. A couple of walks later, Mejia obliterated the first pitch that he saw from Jeffrey Springs for the game-winning blast. The rookie backstop finished the day 1-for-4 plus a walk and is now slashing .241/.353/.586 with three homers and eight RBI in his first 34 plate appearances with the Padres. Sunday, 4:34 pm
  • Holaday doubles twice in victory
    Bryan Holaday went 2-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI in a victory over the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Holaday drove in a run to give the Marlins a 3-1 lead on his first double of the game. The second double gives the backup backstop five on the season in 59 games. If that number didn't tell you how little fantasy relevance Holaday has, his line of .214/.270/.269 in those games might. Sunday, 2:01 pm
  • Reese McGuire drives in first run
    Reese McGuire drove in his first run in the majors in Sunday's victory over the Yankees.

    Advice: The catcher had an RBI double in the third inning to get the Blue Jays on the scoreboard. He also added a single later in the game and scored the tying run. McGuire doesn't play enough to warrant any attention in fantasy leagues. Sunday, 1:11 pm
  • Eric Haase records first MLB hit, RBI in loss
    Eric Haase went 1-for-4 with an RBI in the Indians' loss to the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Haase collected his first major-league hit with an RBI single to left field off Tigers starter Francisco Liriano, putting the Indians ahead in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old backstop hit .236/.288/.443 with 20 homers and 71 RBI in his 120 games at Triple-A Columbus prior to his call-up earlier this month. He's nothing more than quality organizational depth at catcher behind starters Roberto Perez and Yan Gomes. Sunday, 1:01 pm
  • Willson Contreras benched again Sunday
    Willson Contreras is absent from the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's now been benched in favor of Victor Caratini in four of the last six games. Contreras is batting an ugly .184/.300/.223 with zero home runs over his last 34 contests. Caratini hasn't exactly been setting the world on fire lately, either, with a .230/.288/.344 line over the same span. The Cubs are also sitting Javier Baez and Kris Bryant on Sunday, as Tommy La Stella and David Bote are getting starts. Sunday, 9:05 am
  • Chirinos has bases-clearing double
    Robinson Chirinos came through with a go-ahead bases-clearing double in Saturday’s 6-3 victory over the Padres.

    Advice: Chirinos nearly took Jose Castillo deep for a grand slam, but the ball landed on the warning track in left-center field. Still, the hit put the Rangers ahead and they even added two more runs before the sixth inning was through. Chirinos had just two RBI for all of September leading into Saturday’s game. His production has really dropped off since the start of August. Saturday, 9:51 pm
  • Gallagher has four-hit game vs. Twins
    Cam Gallagher had his first career four-hit game Saturday against the Twins.

    Advice: Gallagher collected three singles and a double. He scored twice and even knocked in a run with a single in the seventh. The 25-year-old doesn’t offer much power and entered Saturday’s action with a .203/.267/.333 batting line over 76 plate appearances in the majors. He’s not going to play often enough to provide fantasy value. Saturday, 7:56 pm
  • Diaz (hamstring) runs the bases Saturday
    Elias Diaz (hamstring) ran the bases Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: He also ran the bases Friday, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said, and reacted well to the activity. Diaz has been sidelined for a few weeks with a right hamstring strain but seems to be making progress toward a return. He's hitting .286/.337/.453 in 76 games this year. Saturday, 2:03 pm
  • Taylor Ward goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Taylor Ward went 0-for-4 and struck out twice Friday in a loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: The Angels have stuck with Ward through his struggles, and he'll probably remain in the starting lineup through the end of the year. Thus far, though, he hasn't appeared quite ready for the majors; he's batting .189 with a 34/7 K/BB ratio in 95 at-bats. Friday, 10:57 pm
  • Salvador Perez delivers walkoff slam
    Salvador Lopez hit a game-ending grand slam Friday in the Royals' 8-4 win over the Twins.

    Advice: Perez also had an RBI single earlier in the contest. The slam came with one out in the ninth after Adalberto Mondesi had already singled in a run to tie it up. It was Perez's third career grand slam and second career walkoff homer. Six of his 26 homers this year have come against the Twins. Friday, 10:40 pm
  • Willians Astudillo goes 3-for-4
    Willians Astudillo went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a walk against the Royals on Friday.

    Advice: The walk was his first in 53 plate appearances as a major leaguer. One shouldn't expect many more, either; he had just nine in the minors this year and his high total in nine minor league seasons is 19. Of course, Astudillo hardly ever strikes out, either; he's fanned just twice for the Twins. Defense remains an issue, but it looks like he has something to offer offensively. Friday, 10:29 pm
  • Sanchez has three-hit night Friday
    Gary Sanchez went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a run scored Friday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: One of his hits was an infield single, which is a good sign for the state of his groin. This was his second three-hit game in his last four contests. It’s not much, but Sanchez is now hitting .194 for the year. He hasn’t been in that area since originally going down with his groin injury in late June. Friday, 8:14 pm
