Mon Sep 2015:14Jake Bauers Goes Yard SundayJake Bauers1B/DHIndiansFree Agent
Seattle Mariners first baseman/outfielder Jake Bauers flashed some impressive power Sunday, hitting a towering 464-foot home run. It was his only hit in five at-bats against the Kansas City Royals. The solo shot now gives Bauers four homers on the year in 273 at-bats to go with six steals and a .579 OPS. Bauers isn't rosterable for fantasy purposes, but he could become a deep-league option in the future should he manage to garner regular playing time.

Mon Sep 2015:12Dylan Moore Reaches Three Times, Steals A BaseDylan Moore2B/3BMarinersFree Agent
Seattle Mariners utility man Dylan Moore has continued to find ways to contribute in limited playing time. He started Sunday's game against the Kansas City Royals at third base batting eighth, and he went 2-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base, a run scored, and an RBI. Moore is now slashing .455/.538/.727 with a home run and three steals in his last seven games, making him a solid dart-throw for desperate fantasy managers in the coming scoring period, as he may find his way into the lineup a bit more.

Mon Sep 2015:06Mitch Haniger Hits 34th HomerMitch HanigerRFMarinersFree Agent
Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger hit his 34th home run of the season Sunday, going deep off of Kansas City Royals relief pitcher Tyler Zuber in the ninth inning of a 7-1 victory. The solo shot was Haniger's only hit in four at-bats, and he also walked once. Haniger has now blown past his previous career high of 26 home runs, and with 101 runs scored, 84 RBI, and one steal, has been a major boon to fantasy managers who bought in after a year and a half of missed time.

Mon Sep 2014:59Ty France Has Four Hits, Reaches Base Three TimesTy France1B/3BPadresFree Agent
Seattle Mariners infielder Ty France had another strong game Sunday, moving up to the second spot in the lineup. France went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, an RBI, and a run scored. France now has a six-game hitting streak, with each of the last three outings having multiple hits. He hasn't homered since August 23, but he's been a very safe option for fantasy managers otherwise. If he could up his power output a bit, he'd be a fantasy force.

Mon Sep 2014:27Garrett Richards Saves Third GameGarrett RichardsSPPadresFree Agent
Boston Red Sox pitcher Garrett Richards has taken well to his job in the bullpen, and he saved his third game of the season Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles. Richards struck out one and did not allow a baserunner in his lone inning of work. He now has three saves on the year. He has allowed exactly two earned runs in 13 relief appearances, and he could now become a factor for saves in a wide-open bullpen, but fantasy managers need not rush to the wire for now. Adam Ottavino remains the primary end-of-game option.

Mon Sep 2014:24Nathan Eovaldi Solid For Five InningsNathan EovaldiSPRed SoxFree Agent
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi was solid again Sunday, going five innings against the Baltimore Orioles and allowing three runs on seven hits and a walk with eight strikeouts. He did not factor into the decision in an eventual 8-6 victory. Eovaldi has not allowed more than three runs in any of his last eight starts, averaging eight strikeouts per outing in that time. He has a 3.58 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 188 strikeouts in 173 2/3 innings for the season, making him a strong streaming option at the very worst.

Mon Sep 2014:21J.D. Martinez Homers For 27th Time SundayJ.D. MartinezDHRed SoxFree Agent
Boston Red Sox designated hitter J.D. Martinez homered Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles, giving him 27 long balls on the year. The solo shot was his only hit in four at-bats in the 8-6 victory. Martinez now has a five-game hit streak, and he's reached base safely in every game since September 2. With a .269/.345/.577 slash line over his last seven games, fantasy managers can expect a strong finish for the slugger.

Mon Sep 2014:18Enrique Hernandez Scores Twice, Drives In TwoKiké Hernández2B/3BDodgersFree Agent
Boston Red Sox utility man Enrique Hernandez appears to be getting his rhythm back at the plate. Hernandez went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, two RBI, and two runs scored in Sundays 8-6 victory over the Baltimore Orioles, giving him back-to-back multi-hit games. Hernandez was a revelation this summer, slugging .568 in July and .500 in August, so he could be primed to finish strong after a COVID hiccup. Fantasy managers can count on runs at the very least, as he leads off regularly for Boston.

Mon Sep 2014:15Alcides Escobar Steals A Base SundayAlcides EscobarSSRoyalsFree Agent
Washington Nationals shortstop Alcides Escobar stole a base against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, giving him three total for the season. He also went 1-for-4 with a run scored. Escobar now has a modest five-game hitting streak to his name, and he's slashed .297/.328/.406 with 22 runs scored over his last 30 games. He's no top fantasy option, but he's a solid fill-in middle infielder, especially since he bats second in the Nationals order.

Mon Sep 2013:29Juan Soto Smacks Mammoth HomerJuan SotoLFNationalsFree Agent
Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto smacked a mammoth 454-foot homer off Jon Gray Sunday, helping his team to a 3-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies. It was his only hit in four at-bats. Soto manages to continue to contribute across the board, despite the fact that opposing pitchers seem determined to pitch around him. With a .356/.522/.614 slash line in his last 30 games, Soto is a rare set-it-and-forget-it player for fantasy managers.

Mon Sep 2013:26Josh Bell Reaches Four Times SundayJosh Bell1BPiratesFree Agent
Washington Nationals first baseman Josh Bell continued his excellent season Sunday against the Colorado Rockies, reaching in all four plate appearances against the Colorado Rockies. He went 2-for-2 with two walks and a run scored, though he was thrown out on the bases trying to stretch one of his singles into a double. Bell leads the Nationals with 27 home runs, and he has slashed .315/.439/.593 with eight homers in his last 30 games. He needs to be active in all fantasy lineups the rest of the way.

Mon Sep 2013:17Kyle Finnegan Bounces Back For 10th SaveKyle FinneganRPNationalsFree Agent
Washington Nationals relief pitcher Kyle Finnegan locked down his 10th save of the year Sunday, allowing one walk and striking out one in an inning of work against the Colorado Rockies. It's a good bounce-back outing for Finnegan, who had blown two consecutive saves coming into the contest. Finnegan faces little competition for save chances, but he still has very limited fantasy upside, given that the Nationals just endured the worst 50-game stretch in franchise history.

Mon Sep 2013:15Paolo Espino Delivers Another Fine OutingPaolo EspinoSPNationalsFree Agent
Washington Nationals starting pitcher Paolo Espino was once again very good Sunday against the Colorado Rockies, as he turned in 5 2/3 innings without allowing a run. He gave up three hits and three walks while striking out seven, and was pulled one out shy of what would have been his second consecutive quality start. Espino earned a victory in the contest, improving his record to 5-5. He has a 3.94 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season with 90 strikeouts in 102 2/3 innings. He makes for a solid streamer in good matchups, though time is running out this season.

Mon Sep 2012:30Charlie Blackmon Collects A Pair Of Doubles On SundayCharlie BlackmonRFRockiesFree Agent
Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 with two doubles, one walk, and a strikeout in a 3-0 loss to the Nationals on Sunday. Blackmon was one of two Rockies' to collect multiple hits and he was the only one to notch an extra-base hit. Paolo Espino and company were locked in on the other side and Colorado wasn't able to muster any type of offense. The multi-hit performance was Blackmon's first since September 7. He's now slashing .266/.344/.415 with 13 home runs, 76 RBI, and three stolen bases over 477 at-bats. He's been underwhelming from a fantasy perspective this season, particularly when it comes to power.

Mon Sep 2012:24Jon Gray Takes Another Loss On SundayJon GraySPRockiesFree Agent
Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray took the loss on Sunday when he allowed two runs on three hits with two walks and five strikeouts over four innings in a 3-0 loss to the Nationals. Gray wasn't very efficient in this one, needing 70 pitches just to get through his four innings. He coughed up an RBI single to Yadiel Hernandez in the first inning and allowed a solo home run to Juan Soto in the third. The Rockies were blanked on offense so that was enough to give him the loss. The big right-hander now owns an 8-11 record, 4.17 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 145:58 K/BB ratio over 140 1/3 innings (27 starts). He'll take on the Giants at home in his next turn.

Mon Sep 2011:03Anthony DeSclafani Takes Tough Loss SundayAnthony DeSclafaniSPRedsFree Agent
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani fell to 12-7 in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Braves. DeSclafani pitched 6 innings, allowing two runs on six hits (including a two-run home run) and no walks with six strikeouts. Despite the loss, he has pitched very well all season and now has a 3.23 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. His next start will be in Coors Field, but the Rockies are a good matchup. Fantasy managers could consider starting him given how well he has pitched.

Mon Sep 2010:53Kyle Gibson Pitches Well Despite Loss On Sunday NightKyle GibsonSPRangersFree Agent
Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Kyle Gibson allowed three runs across 6 2/3 innings but suffered the loss on Sunday Night Baseball against the Mets. Gibson had allowed just two runs through six innings, but served up a home run to Jeff McNeil in the seventh inning which proved to be the difference in the game. Gibson isn't the flashiest fantasy option, but he's got a solid 3.51 ERA supported by a 3.80 expected ERA with opposing batters hitting just .235 against him. Gibson is a viable starter in all fantasy leagues on Friday when he has a strong matchup against the Pirates.

Mon Sep 2010:40Andrew McCutchen Stays Cold With 0-For-4 Night Versus MetsAndrew McCutchenLFPhilliesFree Agent
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen remained ice-cold by going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a loss to the Mets on Sunday Night Baseball. McCutchen has struggled mightily as he has just three hits in his previous 22 at-bats and is batting just .196 through 16 games in September. Most of McCutchen's troubles can be blamed on a career-worst 23% strikeout rate, but he's also been the victim of a .240 BABIP which is well below his career average. McCutchen is not a viable starter in mixed leagues at the moment.

Mon Sep 2010:25Jared Walsh Singles, Scores A Run SundayJared Walsh1BAngelsFree Agent
Los Angeles Angels first baseman Jared Walsh went 1-for-4 on Sunday with a run scored against the Oakland Athletics. The single helped the Angels score two runs to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth before ultimately losing in extras 3-2. After going cold in the middle of the year, he's looking to end strong and has posted a .951 OPS and .313 batting average with five home runs since August 22. Overall in 131 games this season, he owns a .271/.335/.504 slash line with 27 HRs, 85 RBI, and 62 runs. He has value in every format and fantasy managers should start him in every league during his hot streak.

Mon Sep 2010:16Lou Trivino Earns Relief Win Sunday Versus AngelsLou TrivinoRPAthleticsFree Agent
Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Lou Trivino was efficient on Sunday as he needed just 14 pitches to record five outs and earn the win in relief. Trivino was summoned in the ninth inning after Sergio Romo blew a two-run lead, in part thanks to some shoddy defense by Oakland. Trivino escaped the ninth and worked a clean 10th inning, picking up two strikeouts along the way. The A's bullpen has been a mess with the lefty Andrew Chafin and the righty Romo swapping save chances with Trivino seemingly out of the closer mix despite holding down the job most of the season. Perhaps this outing will get Trivino back in the good graces of manager Bob Melvin, but fantasy managers desperate for saves should still prioritize Chafin in the Oakland 'pen.
