Jorge Soler Kansas City Royals

We got him back this year -- on a topper -- at PRECISELY the AP price (4x4); would have cheerfully gone $16.

I've lost count. Is it now 26 consecutive days that batters have connected for at least two round-trippers? Four did it yesterday.

Jorge Soler* (KCR): 3-3, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 2 R

Hunter Dozier* (KCR): 3-5, 2 HR, 2 RBI, 3 R

Josh Bell* (PIT): 3-4, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 2 R

Justin Turner (LAD): 2-4, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 R

Freddy Galvis Cincinnati Reds

Claimed off of waivers by the Reds. My guess, and purely a guess, is that the Jays call up Rowdy Tellez, who has been tearing it up at Buffalo.

Tim McLeod tlmcleod
Seth Lugo New York Mets

Edwin Diaz continues to struggle, allowing two earned runs on Sunday. A handful of saves, possibly more, could be in store for Lugo down the stretch.

Been pushing for awhile in my home league to just make the 23rd spot a "swing spot" that can be used for a hitter or pitcher.  It's a half-step that acknowledges the reality Peter notes below.

There's a guy who dropped $26 on Shane Greene in our 5x5 league ... locking Greene in for a guaranteed contract for 2020.  

I've still held onto Jackson, who I have in just about every league I'm in.

But I certainly wouldn't be taking any risks to invest in that pen from here out.

2019 FIP / xFIP
Melancon - 3.18   /  3.65
Jackson  - 3.55  /  2.96
Greene - 4.22 / 3.89 (the ERA is great - the peripherals lousy)
Newcomb - 3.83  / 4.63  (ditto)

Nick Anderson Miami Marlins

Why I'll quit playing keeper fantasy baseball -

Two years ago, I took Kevin Maitan, who was then gone by screwup to the AL

Last year, in the reserves I took Austin Meadows, and now he's also in the AL.

A few months ago, I called Nick Anderson and plucked him for a buck. In his last 10+ innings, he's allowed just 6 baserunners while striking out 21. Of course a lot of the work has come in his new AL home.

Video games don't cause violence, but this might.

I think there is a subtle change in the FA pool for pitchers when you go to 10 pitchers in an AL or NL league. With 9 pitchers there are always safe as milk relievers with decent strikeout rates available. With 10 pitchers in any given week the best available guys are LOOGYS like Oliver Perez. The 12 extra pitchers sucks up the safe as milk talent. Makes it much more challenging to determine who might be helpful from week to week.

Seth Lugo New York Mets

Lugo was National League pitcher of the month or relief pitcher of the month for July.

Carl Edwards Chicago Cubs
Ozzie Smith St. Louis Cardinals
Brendan McKay Tampa Bay Rays
Juan Soto Washington Nationals

Soto left Sunday's 7-4 win over the Mets because of a mild right ankle sprain. He is listed as day to day.

Luke Jackson Atlanta Braves
Seth Lugo New York Mets
Matt Manning Detroit Tigers

Manning followed up his 9 K outing with a 10 K outing in only 6 IP.  No runs allowed, no walks.  He's 10-4 with a 2.57 134 Ks in 119 IP against 36 BB and 85 hits, a 1.02 WHIP.  He's ready for the majors, but probably won't get a cup of coffee.  That would only hurt the Tigers chances of getting the first pick in the draft.

Wander Franco Tampa Bay Rays

It's been a rough 10 days for Wander.  On August 9, his average slipped all the way down to 313, but he's rebounded the past two days.  He went 2-4 Saturday and 4-6 today.  He's back up to 333/399/482 in high-A.
