David Dahl Headshot

David Dahl is out of the Rockies lineup on Saturday.

Added 42 minutes ago Source
Dahl has received regular days off in September as he has admittedly been fatigued. With Carlos Gonzalez also warming the bench tonight, the Rockies will go with an outfield of Ryan Raburn, Charlie Blackmon, and Gerardo Parra against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw tonight. Dahl is batting .318/.361/.492 with six homers and five steals in 55 games with the Rockies.
Ty Blach Headshot

Ty Blach will start for the Giants on Sunday instead of Johnny Cueto.

Added 1 hour ago Source
There was a chance that Cueto would overcome his groin injury and make his scheduled start, but the injury is still bothering him enough to keep him off the mound. Blach has been pitching in long relief for the Giants, so despite a plus matchup with the Padres, he's unlikely to pitch deep enough into the game to be a recommended fantasy option.
Ken Giles Headshot

X-rays on Ken Giles wrist came back negative as he's been diagnosed with a contusion.

The Astros can breathe a sigh of relief, although Giles will probably stil miss some time with this injury. Luke Gregerson has been outstanding since his early season demotion to the eighth inning, so he will most likely be the next man up in the ninth if Giles is forced to miss out on any save opportunities, although Will Harris has 12 saves this year and could leapfrog Gregerson.
Brandon Crawford Headshot

Brandon Crawford (finger) will take batting practice Saturday and hopes to return to the lineup by Sunday.

Added 1 hour ago Source
Crawford has missed a few games with the finger injury, but he appears to be nearing a return to action. He's been relatively disappointing this year, having socked 21 homers last year but this year sits at just 12 through 148 games. The 80 RBI are nice, but in this season of inflated home run totals, Crawford has been left in the fantasy dust by other middle infielders.
DJ LeMahieu Headshot

DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies lineup on Saturday.

Added 1 hour ago Source
He won't complain too much about not having to face Clayton Kershaw. He's seen a decline in his stolen base numbers, having gone 23-26 in stolen base attempts a season ago and is only 11-18 this year, but his robust .349/.419/.499 slash line has helped made up for the lack of steals.
Carlos Gonzalez Headshot

Carlos Gonzalez is out of the Rockies lineup on Saturday.

Added 1 hour ago Source
He'll get the night off against the toughest lefty in the league, Clayton Kershaw. He's managed to stay relatively healthy this season, eclipsing the 600 plate appearance mark for the second year in a row. He should be in the lineup for Sunday's contest and face Dodgers righty Brandon McCarthy.
Brandon McCarthy Headshot

Brandon McCarthy will start for the Dodgers on Sunday.

Added 2 hours ago Source
After The Dodgers announced that Hill will be skipped on Sunday they also announced that McCarthy will get the start. He is just one of the many Dodgers that have battled with injuries this year, but it looks like he will be ready for the playoffs.
Rich Hill Headshot

Dodgers will skip Rich Hill's next start scheduled for Sunday.

Rich Hill will be skipped on Sunday. He has. Even a great pitcher all year but injuries have continued to hold him back. The Dodgers have not announced a starter, but because of all the injuries the team has dealt with they have a lot of options.
Nick Castellanos Headshot

Nick Castellanos (hand) will play in instructional games on Monday and Wednesday.

After having what looked to be the start to a breakout year in April and May Castellanos' performance fell off a little bit. Before he could get back on track a hand injury derailed his season. Thankfully it looks like he is healthy enough to return to baseball soon.
Yangervis Solarte Headshot

Yangervis Solarte has rejoined the Padres.

The baseball community still has the Solarte family in its prayers after Solarte's wife passed away from cancer at the age of 31. It's impossible to understand how he may feel but hopefully baseball can provide a comforting place for him.
