Player Notes

  • 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
  • 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

  • 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

  • DeJong hits two-run homer, Cards beat ATL
    Paul DeJong hit a two-run homer in the Cardinals' 11-6 defeat of the Braves on Monday.

    Advice: He also doubled in the game, finishing 2-for-4 with two RBI and one run scored. It's been a disappointing season overall for DeJong, but he does have 40 RBI over his last 51 games dating back to July 21 and he's now up to 18 home runs in 104 total games this year. Yesterday, 8:22 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera has Grade 1 calf strain
    Asdrubal Cabrera suffered a Grade 1 calf strain in Monday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Cabrera will be evaluated further on Tuesday. A Grade 1 strain is the least severe, but any sort of calf strain this late in the year certainly has the potential to be a season-ender. Fantasy owners don't need to wait around on Cabrera. Yesterday, 7:43 pm
  • Jorge Polanco homers in Twins victory
    Jorge Polanco went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in the Twins’ 6-1 win over the Tigers on Monday.

    Advice: Polanco swatted a solo homer, his sixth of the year, against Tigers reliever Alex Wilson in the ninth inning. He was also hit by a pitch and caught stealing in the second inning and beat out an infield single in the fourth. The 25-year-old switch-hitting shortstop has recorded a .289/.339/.431 triple-slash line with 31 runs scored, six homers, 33 RBI and four steals in 277 plate appearances since returning to the Twins lineup in early July. Yesterday, 7:11 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
  • Camargo (groin) returns to Braves' lineup
    Johan Camargo (groin) has returned to the Braves' lineup Monday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Camargo has been out of action since leaving a game last Tuesday with left groin tightness. He'll bat fifth in his return Monday against Miles Mikolas. Yesterday, 12:11 pm
  • Profar clubs 18th home run in loss to Padres
    Jurickson Profar clubbed his 18th home run of the season, but it wasn't enough to lead the Rangers to victory on the road against the Padres in San Diego on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Profar swatted his go-ahead solo homer in the third inning off of Padres' starter Jacob Nix. Profar also doubled and drew a walk in the contest, finishing the day 2-for-3. He's in the midst of a breakout season offensively, slashing .259/.342/.466 with 18 homers and 74 RBI. Still only 25-years-old, Profar looks to be a big part of the Rangers' future. Sunday, 4:29 pm

    Jurickson Profar Tex - 1B,2B,3B,SS,OF
  • David Fletcher (hamstring) may not return
    Angels' manager Mike Scioscia admitted that he's not optimistic about the chances of David Fletcher (hamstring) returning this season.

    Advice: Fletcher suffered a left hamstring strain during Sunday's game against the Mariners. He'll be evaluated on Monday to determine the severity of the injury, but given that there are only two weeks left in the season, his chances of returning appear to be slim. Kaleb Cowart should see additional time at second base while he's out. Sunday, 4:23 pm

    David Fletcher LAA - 2B,3B,SS
  • Mondesi homers again, but Royals lose
    Adalberto Mondesi went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer in a loss to the Twins on Sunday.

    Advice: Mondesi blasted a two-run shot of Kyle Gibson, and it gives the 23-year-old infielder nine on the season in 62 games. He also had a pair of singles, and it helps raise Mondesi's average to .291. He's never going to walk much, but the new-found power along with a chance to hit for average and speed (25 steals) make him a very intriguing -- if volatile -- fantasy option in 2019. Sunday, 2:55 pm
  • Culberson goes deep in loss to Nationals
    Charlie Culberson went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Braves' loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

    Advice: Culberson swatted a two-run homer, his 12th of the year, off Nationals reliever Greg Holland to trim the deficit to one run in the eighth inning, but the Braves late comeback effort fell short in this one. The 29-year-old third baseman has filled in admirably for Johan Camargo, who has been dealing with a nagging groin injury, going deep twice in his last five games. Sunday, 2:52 pm
    Player Note
    Charlie Culberson Atl - 2B,3B,SS,OF
  • Willy Adams slugs ninth homer in Rays win
    Willy Adames went 2-for-3 with a solo homer in the Rays' win over the Athletics on Sunday.

    Advice: Adames drilled a towering 420-foot dinger, his ninth of the year, off Athletics starter Mike Fiers in the fourth inning. It was his first round-tripper since August 24. The 23-year-old shortstop is striking out at a 30 percent rate in his major-league debut, but remains one of the most intriguing middle infield prospects in the game thanks to his tantalizing blend of power and speed. He has a bright future ahead of him in Tampa Bay. Sunday, 2:02 pm
  • Rosario stays hot in loss to Red Sox
    Amed Rosario went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday.

    Advice: Rosario is really swinging the bat well right now, and the double was the 26th of the season for the shortstop. He drove in a run on the seventh on a single to tie the game at 3-3, and it gives Rosario 48 on the season. Because of his struggles in the early part of the year Rosario is still just hitting .259/.298/.395, but he has a .906 OPS in September, and has been a much better offensive player in the second-half of the season. Don't be surprised if Rosario has a breakout 2019 campaign. Sunday, 1:17 pm
  • Holt hits two-run homer in Red Sox victory
    Brock Holt went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a victory over the Mets on Sunday.

    Advice: Holt deposited a Jacob deGrom pitch into the stands, and it gives the utility player five homers on the season in his 290 at-bats. The homer helps improve his line to .262.347/.389 in that time frame. He will need to become an everyday player -- likely for a different club -- to have fantasy relevance in 2019. Sunday, 1:12 pm
    Player Note
    Brock Holt Bos - 2B,3B,SS,OF
  • Jonathan Schoop getting a day off Sunday
    Jonathan Schoop is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Schoop -- who is hitting .196/.243/.343 as a Brewer -- has been benched in two straight and three of the last four. Milwaukee is again going with Travis Shaw at second base and Orlando Arcia at shortstop. Sunday, 8:59 am
  • Indians sitting multiple regulars Sunday
    Francisco Lindor is absent from the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: A day after clinching the American League Central, the Indians are rolling out a lineup filled with backups Sunday. Josh Donaldson is the only regular who is in there. Sunday, 8:19 am
  • Lourdes Gurriel not in Sunday's lineup
    Lourdes Gurriel is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's just a regular day of rest for Gurriel, who is batting only .195/.256/.273 over 19 games since returning from the disabled list. Richard Urena will handle shortstop. Sunday, 8:14 am
  • Tim Anderson getting a breather Sunday
    Tim Anderson is absent from the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It looks to be a routine day of rest. The Pale Hose have Jose Rondon at shortstop. Sunday, 8:00 am
  • Yangervis Solarte not in Jays lineup Saturday
    Yangervis Solarte is not in the Blue Jays' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees.

    Advice: Richard Urena will start in his place at second base and bat ninth against CC Sabathia and the Yankees. Solarte has gone 3-for-11 (.273) with no extra base hits and one strikeout since his return from the disabled list on September 9. Saturday, 10:09 am
