Evan Gattis Headshot

Evan Gattis went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Gatttis is boom or bust behind the plate, we all know that. His 17 home runs on the season are great, but his .221 batting average is pretty darn bad. If you have a solid team batting average and can afford to play Gattis in your lineup, then go ahead and do it because that power is real. He will face Masahiro Tanaka tomorrow, whom he’s hitless against in three at-bats.

Doug Fister Headshot

Doug Fister allowed six earned runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out three in 4.2 innings on Tuesday against the Yankees.

Fister had been pitched really well of late, allowing just five earned runs over his last 20 innings. Well, he allowed six in just 4.2 innings tonight against the Bronx Bombers. Fister’s ERA jumped to 3.73 on the season and along with that, the three strikeouts were right on par with where’s he has been most of the season. He’s better suited for AL-only use than mixed league right now, but if you are really desperate you could play him in mixed leagues. Just know that he isn’t going to be a game changer in any one category. His next start will come on Monday against the Blue Jays.

Marwin Gonzalez Headshot

Marwin Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs on Tuesday against the Yankees.

Gonzalez’s two homers tonight were his first in over week and now gives him four since the All-Star break. He could lose out on at-bats moving forward depending what the team does, but for now, his spot is safe. Also, if he continues to have performances like this, he should be able to maintain his spot moving forward. He now has 10 home runs, 28 RBI and nine stolen bases on the season.

Andrew Miller Headshot

Andrew Miller allowed one hit and struck out two to earn his 9th save of the season against the Astros on Tuesday.

Another good outing from the Yankee closer. He could be out of New York here in the coming days, but for now, he is the closer for the Bronx Bombers. He’s been dominant this season, as seen by his 6-1 record and 1.39 ERA. Continue to roll with him in all formats, whether he’s a closer or setup guy in the American League or National League.

Starlin Castro Headshot

Starlin Castro went 2-for-4 with a walk, one RBI and one run scored on Tuesday against the Astros.

Castro’s first season in the Bronx has been alright, all things considered. He’s driven in 40 runs, while homering 11 times and scoring 38 times himself. He’s hitting .261 on the year and is a solid middle infielder option in deeper mixed league formats. He’s never faced tomorrow’s starter Lance McCullers.

CC Sabathia Headshot

C.C. Sabathia allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five in 6.2 innings on Tuesday against the Astros.

For the second straight night a Yankee starter kept the Houston offense on its heels. There were only two pitches that really did him in, both went over the fence for solo home runs. Marwin Gonzalez and Evan Gattis took the southpaw deep in this one, but he was able to hold Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman and George Springer hitless. Interesting how baseball works. This was Sabathia’s first quality start since June 16, so it’s safe to say that he’s only useful in deeper AL-only formats. His next start will come on Monday against the New York Mets.

Daniel Norris Headshot

Daniel Norris (right oblique) will make his next rehab start in Double-A Erie on Thursday.

So far Norris has not looked shart in his rehab stint, and the Tigers are hoping he can improve before he comes back up. Before the injury the youngster is sporting a 4.85 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP in 13 innings pitched on the year. He still has tremendous upside at just 23 years of age so he is one to be patient with, as he still has plenty of time to turn it around.

Eduardo Nunez Headshot

Eduardo Nunez went 1-for-3 with a walk and two stolen bases on Tuesday against the Braves.

Nunez has been one of the biggest waiver wire darlings this season. He’s hitting .298 with 12 home runs, 48 runs scored, 46 RBI and 26 stolen bases on the season. He’s a top-10 player at his position and his fantasy value is at his highest when he’s hitting atop that Minnesota order. He should able to start racking up the runs if and when Miguel Sano can get hot.

Ervin Santana Headshot

Ervin Santana allowed two earned runs on seven hits while striking out five in nine innings on Tuesday against the Braves.

The Braves offense, outside of Freddie Freeman and even Nick Markakis, doesn’t pose much of a threat. However, the Twins offense didn’t provide Santana tonight with the necessary run support, so the veteran right-hander was saddled with a complete game, tough-luck loss. He’s been good over his last two starts, but he doesn’t provide much upside in the strikeout department. His next start will come on Sunday against the Chicago White Sox.
35 minutes ago
Lucas Harrell Headshot

Lucas Harrell allowed four hits and three walks while striking out four in six shutout innings on Tuesday against the Twins.

Through five starts with the Braves, Harrell has posted a 3.38 and a 21:12 K/BB ratio. The Minnesota offense can be tough, but they are very strikeout prone, so Harrell’s outing shouldn’t be too surprising. Harrell did exactly what he was expected, but for now, he’s better suited for use in NL-only formats. He draws another favorable matchup this Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies.
