Robbie Ray Toronto Blue Jays

31 walks in 31 IP ... ouch :-(

He's got a W and 43 Ks ... so he's ... survivable :-)

He's got a better ERA/WHIP than Strasburg and MadBum ... just sayin' ...

Howard Lynch LynchMob

Davies basically neutralizes Ray leaving a combined 1.38/4.44 and a lot of strikeouts.
From there Hendricks, Wainwright, and Corbin bring the WHIP/ERA down into a better position.

Junior Guerra Arizona Diamondbacks

The Monkey, reporting on a rare win of late for the NL...

Arizona Diamondbacks — Stefan Crichton collected his second save of the season on Tuesday with a perfect ninth inning. He looks like the best option for saves in Arizona for the next two weeks. Junior Guerra deserves some credit as well for his effort last night, as he entered the sixth inning with one out and the go-ahead run on third before promptly striking out Mike Trout and inducing a flyout from Anthony Rendon.

Hierarchy remains: *Crichton | Bergen | Guerra.
* = closer-by-committee

Nathaniel Lowe Tampa Bay Rays

Now I'm broke. Bid $7 (of a possible $9) for him on Monday, and there were no other bids! Best not to complain. A homer and -- surprise bonus -- stolen base last night.

Jared Walsh Los Angeles Angels

Onto each team a little sun must shine.

BA's prospect report...

Los Angeles Angels

—Another game, another home run for Jared Walsh. The 27-year-old has been on fire of late, with five home runs and 14 RBIs in his last seven games. On Tuesday night, he went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a solo home run, two runs and three RBIs. Walsh is hitting .315 with six homers and 16 RBIs on the year.

Willi Castro Detroit Tigers

He got his chance and ran with it. Goodrum, finally back from the DL, played second yesterday

Detroit Tigers

—No. 13 prospect Willi Castro turned in another strong performance, with three hits in five at-bats—including a solo home run in the sixth inning. The 23-year-old has been one of the best rookies in the game, posting a .352 average with four home runs, 14 RBIs and 13 runs scored.

Dane Dunning Chicago White Sox

Don't know why we aren't getting his excellent stats but you can click on BA' link.

Chicago White Sox

—No. 10 prospect Dane Dunning pitched a career-high seven innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks and striking out seven to earn his second win. The 25-year-old righthander has impressed in five starts, with 28 strikeouts and just nine walks in 27 innings.

Tanner Houck Boston Red Sox

In today's prospect report from Baseball America...

Boston Red Sox

—No. 13 prospect Tanner Houck looked plenty comfortable in his first big league start, striking out seven and allowing two hits and three walks over five scoreless innings to pick up his first career win. The 24-year-old righthander was recalled on Tuesday after spending time at the team’s alternate site.

Oliver Drake Tampa Bay Rays

From the Monkey this morning...

Tampa Bay Rays — The Rays activated Oliver Drake from the IL on Tuesday. Drake will be eased back into action and probably won’t pitch on back-to-back days right away, but we’re sliding him back into this committee as someone who may eventually see a save chance. 

Updated hierarchy: *Anderson | Castillo | Drake.
* = closer-by-committee

Alex Patton Alex
Hector Neris Philadelphia Phillies

He's back in, maybe.

From the Monkey:

Philadelphia Phillies – With Brandon Workman seemingly available, the Phillies turned to Hector Neris to close out Tuesday’s 4-1 win over the Mets. Manager Joe Girardi said that he might switch things up in the late innings, and it looks like he’s staying true to his word. We’ll slap a committee tag on this bullpen for now, but don’t be surprised if Neris wins his job back with another strong outing.

Hierarchy remains: *Workman | Neris | Phelps.
* = closer-by-committee

R.J. Alaniz Seattle Mariners

R.J. Alaniz (P) CIN - Sep. 15

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=757624

Alaniz's contract was purchased prior to Tuesday's game against the Pirates, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: He logged a 9.19 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 15.2 innings with the Reds and Mariners a season ago, so Alaniz should be expected to pitch almost exclusively in low-leverage situations. Jose De Leon (groin strain) was placed on the 10-day IL in a corresponding move.

How did you survive Robbie Ray?

I can tell you I haven't survived Jo Adell.

Alex Patton Alex
Jo Adell Los Angeles Angels

A mini-slump!

Jo Adell (OF) ANA - Sep. 15

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=757697

Adell isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Adell has been in a slump recently as he's gone 0-for-20 with one walk and 10 strikeouts over the past six games. He'll retreat to the bench with Taylor Ward starting in right field.

Cameron Maybin Chicago Cubs

Why was Cameron beaming so?  Cuz P&C still has him on the Tigers 🐯.


Frank Smith Pancho

Big smile on his face as he heads to first on a walk-off HBP says it all.

The players have gone through a lot. But they're making good money and having fun.

Playoffs to come for most teams.

Alex Patton Alex

1) Shared Hitters -- Wil Myers and Sam Hilliard.
Shared Pitchers -- Zach Davies and Robbie Ray (sorry Howard about Ray).
2) Howard punted saves. I focused on power and Lorenzo Cain killed my stolen base chance so it looks like I punted saves.
3) My plan was to avoid huge name players and try to get the high teens hitters and low teens pitchers. Kole Calhoun is on all 5 of my teams which are all in the 3rd to 6th.

C: Gomes, Ramos

IF: Bell, Segura, Anderson, Galvis, D'Arnaud, Ahmed

OF: Pollack, Hilliard, Cain, Myers, Winker, Calhoun

P: Hendricks, Ray, Davies, Wainright, Quintana, Corbin, Gant, Kintzler, Jansen,

Antonio Senzatela Colorado Rockies

Tosses the first complete game for the Rockies in Coors since 2015.

That's not a misprint unless I misheard.

Francisco Lindor Cleveland Indians

Popped the ball over the left field fence to tie the game in the 9th against the Cubs in Wrigley.

No way it should have been a homer but it is what it is.

Go Kent -- stay ahead of the mob!

Let's see your rosters, please. At least the highlights. How many players do you share?

I'm going to guess that my big-ticket item in another Doubt league, Yelich, isn't one of them.

Luke Voit New York Yankees

Yanks show who's boss with 20-6 spanking of the Jays. Voit plates five, hits two over the fence to take over the major league lead with 18.
