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. 33 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
  • Dozier (back) doubles in return to lineup
    Hunter Dozier (back) went 1-for-4 with a double in his return to the starting lineup Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Dozier missed a couple of games with back soreness, but he's feeling better now. The 27-year-old is batting .231/.281/.393 with nine home runs and 29 RBI over 91 games this season. Today, 5:40 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
  • Turner has two more hits in win over Rockies
    Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a walk in a victory over the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: This is the third-straight multi-hit game for Turner, and the fifth in his last 10 games. On August 3, Turner owned a .257 average and .769 OPS. Those numbers are now .324 and .955. He owns a .365/.469/.615 line in September after slashing .402/.491/.722 in August. All of this to say that there haven't been many better offensive players as of late, and there's no reason to think he's going to slow down. Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • 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

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
