Player Notes

  • Judge (wrist) hits in simulated game again
    Aaron Judge (wrist) took swings in a simulated game for the second straight day on Tuesday.

    Advice: Facing minor league right-hander Adonis Rosa, Judge slugged an opposite field homer and put three other plays in play. He also swung and missed at several pitches. Still, it's a good sign for his wrist that he was able to take some swings against live pitching on back-to-back days. It's possible that Judge could return at some point during this week's series against the Red Sox. Judge has been out since late July with a chip fracture in his right wrist. 46 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
  • Muncy homers, walks twice in victory
    Max Muncy went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and two runs scored in a victory over the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: The homer came off of Jon Gray, and it gives the first baseman 33 blasts on the season. He also walked twice to help raise his on-base percentage to .388 with a .577 slugging percentage. You have the right to wonder if he can do that again next season, but you cannot deny that what Muncy has done in 2018 has been impressive, and awesome to watch. He's a risky play right now, however, because his playing time has been inconsistent. Yesterday, 10:29 pm

    Max Muncy LAD - 1B,2B,3B,OF
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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. Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Josh Reddick day-to-day with sore Achilles
    Josh Reddick is day-to-day with right Achilles soreness.

    Advice: The Astros initially announced the injury as right ankle discomfort, but manager A.J. Hinch revealed after that game that the soreness was more in Reddick's Achilles. It doesn't seem to be something the team is overly concerned with at this time, but they'll be careful with the outfielder. Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Gordon has two hits, triples in win
    Dee Gordon went 2-for-4 with a triple in a win over the Astros on Monday.

    Advice: Gordon's triple is the sixth of the season; a solid total but a bit disappointing when you consider how fast he is. After a strong start to the season, Gordon has been a pretty big disappointment, as he's hitting just .271/291/.336 with 30 steals and just eight walks in 134 games. Yesterday, 8:31 pm

  • Santana homers in second straight game
    Domingo Santana crushed a pinch-hit homer in the Brewers' blowout win over the Reds on Monday.

    Advice: Santana swatted a pinch-hit, solo homer -- his fifth of the year -- off Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani in fifth inning. The 26-year-old slugger has left the yard in back-to-back games, but has been utilized exclusively in a pinch-hitting role in recent weeks. He's hitting .462 (6-for-13) with a pair of homers since being recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on September 1. Yesterday, 8:01 pm
  • Conforto homers, plates six against Phillies
    Michael Conforto went 3-for-5 with a home run and six total RBI in the Mets' 9-4 win over the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: Conforto hit a two-run single in the top of the fifth inning, an RBI double in the top of the seventh, and then popped a three-run homer off Phillies reliever Austin Davis in the top of the ninth. The 25-year-old outfielder is now up to seven home runs and 22 RBI in 16 games since the calendar flipped to September. Yesterday, 7:21 pm
  • Castellanos reaches four times in loss
    Nicholas Castellanos went 3-for-3 with a walks and a run scored in the Tigers’ loss to the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: Castellanos has been on of the lone bright spots in an otherwise dismal season for Detroit, accounting for three of their five hits in a lopsided loss. He notched his 18th three-hit performance and 51st multi-hit effort of the year in this one. He singled in the first inning, walked and came around to score the lone Tigers run of the contest in the fourth, singled in the sixth and drilled a ground-rule double in eighth inning. The 26-year-old outfielder is hitting .296/.354/.491 with 79 runs scored, 21 homers, 81 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 627 plate appearances. Yesterday, 7:07 pm
  • Villar steals two bases in loss to Blue Jays
    Jonathan Villar stole two bases Monday in the Orioles' loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Villar is now up to 14 steals in 42 games with the O's, and he's also tallied eight home runs, 23 RBI, and 24 runs scored. The 27-year-old infielder should have a rejuvenated fantasy profile leading into 2019. Yesterday, 7:03 pm
  • Pillar doubles, homers as Jays beat Orioles
    Kevin Pillar went 2-for-4 with his 14th home run of the season Monday in the Blue Jays' defeat of the Orioles.

    Advice: Pillar doubled and scored the first run of the night on a Rowdy Tellez RBI single in the top of the second inning before popping a solo shot off O's reliever Sean Gilmartin in the top of the seventh. It's been a mostly disappointing 2018 season for the 29-year-old center fielder, who's slashing .248/.277/.421 in 133 games. Yesterday, 7:01 pm
  • Twins' Eddie Rosario aggravates quad injury
    Eddie Rosario departed Monday's game against the Tigers after aggravating his right quad injury.

    Advice: The quad flared up on him again when he was trying to chase down a ball in the gap. Rosario first injured his quad back on August 30 and he was playing just his second game in the outfield Monday since the injury (he made six starts in the designated hitter spot over that span). The Twins are referring to the strain as "mild to moderate," so Rosario's season is surely over. Yesterday, 6:16 pm
  • Ryan Braun not in Monday's lineup
    Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Monday.

    Advice: He and Jonathan Schoop are both on the bench. Curtis Granderson is getting a start in the outfield and leading off and Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw are covering the middle infield. Yesterday, 1:14 pm
  • Adam Eaton out again Monday
    Adam Eaton is out of the Nationals' lineup again Monday against the Marlins.

    Advice: It's unclear if Eaton is dealing with some sort of physical issue or if the Nationals simply want to get a long look at Victor Robles down the stretch. Robles is in the leadoff spot for the second straight day. Yesterday, 12:33 pm
