Tue Sep 2111:32Erick Fedde Allows Three Home Runs To MarlinsErick FeddeSPNationalsFree Agent
Washington Nationals starting pitcher Erick Fedde allowed four runs (two earned) in five innings against the Miami Marlins Monday, taking a no-decision in an eventual 8-7 extra-inning loss. He gave up four hits, including three home runs, and no walks while striking out five batters. Fedde has not had a calendar month with an ERA under five since June, and with a 5.10 ERA and 1.39 WHIP for the season, he simply isn't a factor in the fantasy conversation.

Tue Sep 2111:28Lane Thomas Homers, Scores Twice MondayLane ThomasCF/RFNationalsFree Agent
Washington Nationals outfielder Lane Thomas had another strong game Monday, going 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double, a walk, and two runs scored against the Miami Marlins in an 8-7 extra-inning defeat. Thomas has slashed .302/.390/.548 with six homers, 25 runs scored, and 22 RBI in his 33 games and 126 at-bats as a National. It remains to be seen whether this production will last into 2022, but he simply must be rostered and activated in all leagues for the remainder of this season.

Tue Sep 2111:24Keibert Ruiz Drives In Four MondayKeibert RuizCNationalsFree Agent
Washington Nationals catcher Keibert Ruiz drove in four runs against the Miami Marlins Monday. He went 3-for-5 with three singles and a run scored. That's his third three-hit game in his last four, bringing his slash line over his last seven games to .385/.429/.462 with eight RBI. He still has just three extra-base hits in his 56 career at-bats, but he's already showing off what makes him such a strong prospect on the field and in fantasy.

Tue Sep 2111:20Kyle Seager Has Three Hits, Drives In ThreeKyle Seager3BMarinersFree Agent
Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager had a three-hit game against the Oakland Athletics Monday, hitting a double and two singles and driving in three runs. Seager has now matched his career high with 99 RBI for the season. It's his fourth three-hit game of the year, and his first since June 13. Seager can be a drain on batting average, hitting just .211, but he's contributed plenty for fantasy managers with his 34 homers and 74 runs scored.

Tue Sep 2111:18Charlie Culberson Goes Deep In LossCharlie Culberson2B/3BRangersFree Agent
Texas Rangers infielder Charlie Culberson surprisingly provided the power for this lineup during Monday's contest. He went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the fifth inning of what ended up being a 4-3 loss to the New York Yankees. This was Culberson's fifth home run on the season, but he is not a player known for his power. He is mainly a veteran infielder used off the bench and can be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Tue Sep 2111:16Paul Sewald Recores Five-Out Save MondayPaul SewaldRPMarinersFree Agent
Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Paul Sewald recorded a five-out save against the Oakland Athletics Monday, bringing his season total to nine saves. Sewald entered in relief of an ineffective Diego Castillo with two runners on and proceeded to strike out both Matt Olson and Matt Chapman. He struck out three total and did not allow a baserunner. Sewald has now had three consecutive scoreless outings after having three consecutive in which he was scored upon. He appears to be back on track, though fantasy managers who are only in search of holds will be disappointed with his high-leverage usage.

Tue Sep 2111:14A.J. Alexy Walks Six Versus YankeesA.J. AlexySPRangersFree Agent
Texas Rangers starting pitcher A.J. Alexy struggled to find the strike zone during Monday's game against the New York Yankees. He went 3 1/3 innings, four hits allowed, four earned runs, six walks, and one strikeouts in the 4-3 loss. It's surprising that he only gave up four runs considering he walked that many batters. Alexy was solid during his first two big league starts, but has control issues. He'll be an avoidable fantasy option for the rest of the season.

Tue Sep 2111:13Tyler Anderson Shuts Down A'sTyler AndersonSPMarinersFree Agent
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Tyler Anderson shut down the Oakland Athletics for seven innings Monday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk with seven strikeouts to earn his seventh win of the season. Anderson has started seven games since being traded to Seattle, recording a 3.38 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and 46 strikeouts in 56 innings. He's allowed more than three earned runs on just one occasion, making him a solid floor play in deep leagues.

Tue Sep 2111:07Austin Riley Hits Three Doubles On MondayAustin Riley3BBravesFree Agent
Atlanta Braves outfielder Austin Riley took advantage of the Arizona Diamondbacks lackluster pitching staff on Monday. He went 3-for-5 with three doubles and three RBI in what ended up being a 11-4 blowout victory for Atlanta. The 24-year-old has really settled into a groove this season and is becoming a main piece in the middle of the lineup. Riley is hitting .301 with 29 home runs and 92 RBI, so certainly someone to think about early in fantasy drafts next season.

Tue Sep 2111:03Freddie Freeman Has Three-Hit PerformanceFreddie Freeman1BBravesFree Agent
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is one of the main reasons why this team is in first place in the division. The former MVP has put on a show at the plate and has been an important piece to this lineup. On Monday, Freeman went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in the 11-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. It's unlikely that Freeman wins another MVP this season. However, Freeman is hitting .300/.390/.510 with 30 home runs and 80 RBI, so a solid season at the plate.

Tue Sep 2110:59Chad Pinder Scores Run In Loss To Mariners On MondayChad Pinder2B/RFAthleticsFree Agent
Oakland Athletics outfielder Chad Pinder went 1-for-3 with a run scored in a loss to Seattle on Monday night. Pinder has been rotating playing time between right field, left field, and second base and hasn't been getting enough at-bats to justify a roster spot in fantasy. When he does play, he's slashing just .233/.294/.372 with just three homers and one steal on the season. He's a nice utility player for Oakland, but fantasy managers can continue to ignore Pinder on waivers.

Tue Sep 2110:59Jaime Barria Solid In BlowoutJaime BarriaSPAngelsFree Agent
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Jaime Barria (2-4) pitched well for 5 1/3 innings on Monday night in the 10-0 loss to the Houston Astros. He worked around 10 hits, giving up two runs and no walks while striking out five. In the end, he was the losing pitcher after the bullpen surrendered eight runs. Barria hasn't been good over 12 appearances this season, posting a 4.77 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and a poor 14.4 strikeout percentage while going at least five innings in just five of his 10 starts. He offers no value and should be left on the waiver wire in every format.

Tue Sep 2110:57Adam Duvall Mashes Two-Run HomerAdam DuvallCF/LF/RFBravesFree Agent
Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall continued showing off his impressive power ability on Monday versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run that helped pad on to what was already becoming a blowout win for the Braves. Duvall has 37 home runs and 107 RBI while posting a .287 OBP, so that should tell you all you need to know as a fantasy manager.

Tue Sep 2110:52Huascar Ynoa Shaky Versus DiamondbacksHuascar YnoaSPBravesFree Agent
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Huascar Ynoa has normally been a reliable option, but he struggled during Monday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went four innings and allowed five hits, three earned runs, two walks and two strikeouts in the 11-4 win. He ended up with a no-decision in what was expected to be a favorable outing for Ynoa. Nonetheless, he'll take a 3.43 ERA into his next start versus the San Diego Padres. He'll be an avoidable streaming option for that matchup.

Tue Sep 2110:51Starling Marte Collects RBI In Loss To MarinersStarling MarteCFAthleticsFree Agent
Oakland Athletics outfielder Starling Marte went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in a loss to the Mariners on Monday. Marte got off to a torrid start to his A's career after the trade deadline, but he's cooled off considerably since that hot start. Since the start of September, Marte has just a .758 OPS, more than 100 points lower than the sturdy .882 OPS he posted in August. He's also been held in check on the basepaths as Marte has just three steals in September and has been caught twice; in August he was 19-for-19 on stolen base attempts. Marte is still a must-start outfielder in fantasy with three more games versus Seattle on tap.

Tue Sep 2110:40Sean Manaea Roughed Up By Mariners On MondaySean ManaeaSPAthleticsFree Agent
Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Sean Manaea allowed four runs on eight hits to suffer his 10th loss of the season Monday versus the Mariners. The left-hander walked one and picked up just three strikeouts in his latest disappointing start. Manaea has now allowed nine runs in his last 10 innings and has a 6.95 ERA going back to the start of August. He did have back-to-back seven inning starts with nine strikeouts back on September 3 and 9, but other than those starts, Manaea has not pitched past the fifth inning in any start since July and has allowed at least four runs in four starts in that span. Manaea is not a recommended starter in his next start versus a deadly Astros lineup.

Tue Sep 2110:21Matt Vierling Holding Down First Base For PhilliesMatt VierlingLFPhilliesFree Agent
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Matt Vierling went 1-for-3 on Monday night to raise his batting average to .341 through his first 48 plate appearances this season. Vierling now has five hits in his last four starts as he's done a nice job at first base in the absence of Rhys Hoskins (abdomen) who is out for the season. The 25-year-old rookie is yet to homer in the Big Leagues and he slugged just .359 in Triple-A this season, so he shouldn't be expected to put up big power numbers. He does, however, have two stolen bases and has been in the lineup most days for a Philly club that is still fighting for a postseason birth. The majority of fantasy players can leave Vierling on waivers, however, he's a name to know in deep leagues down the stretch.

Tue Sep 2110:03Ranger Suarez Fires Six Solid Innings Despite LossRanger SuárezRPPhilliesFree Agent
Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Ranger Suarez was the tough-luck loser on Monday night despite tossing six strong innings versus the Orioles. Suarez had a rough first inning as he allowed three straight singles to let in two runs. That was all Baltimore could muster versus Suarez who settled in nicely after that rocky inning. On the night, Suarez needed 102 pitches to complete six innings, picking up five strikeouts along the way, but it wasn't enough to avoid a loss as the Phillies were shut down by John Means and two Baltimore relievers. Suarez will carry a pristine 1.60 ERA and 1.06 WHIP into another soft matchup with the Pirates. He's a must-start fantasy asset in all leagues.

Tue Sep 2109:08Scott Barlow Allows Solo Homer But Converts SaveScott BarlowRPRoyalsFree Agent
Kansas City Royals relief pitcher Scott Barlow was called upon to close out Game 2 of the team's doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians on Monday. He entered in the seventh inning while the team was ahead 4-1. He went on to give up a solo home run to Bobby Bradley, but that was the only damage that was done. Barlow recorded two strikeouts in the inning and went on to earn his 14th save of the year. The 28-year-old has now converted six consecutive save opportunities and appears to be the clear closer for the team. He should be rostered in all leagues where saves are scarce for the final weeks of the year.

Tue Sep 2109:02Hunter Dozier Launches His 14th Home RunHunter Dozier1B/3B/RFRoyalsFree Agent
Kansas City Royals third baseman/outfielder Hunter Dozier went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Game 1 of the team's doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians on Monday. The 30-year-old veteran is quietly putting together a solid month of September. Over 19 games this month, he's slashing .291/.379/.600 with four home runs, five doubles, 11 RBI and eight runs. It's been a nightmare season so far for Dozier, who was slashing just .203/.271/.352 before the calendar flipped to September. He could be a worthy and sneaky add in deep leagues and AL-only leagues for managers who can utilize either his third base, first base or outfield eligibility for the final weeks of the year.
