Justin Nicolino pitched seven innings of 3-hit ball for Double-A Jacksonville Sunday, striking out six and walking none.

Nicolino was acquired in the Toronto-Miami mega-deal a few seasons ago that sent Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle to Toronto. After Sunday's outing, Nicolino now owns the best ERA in the Southern League (2.64). His change-up is his only pitch that grades out above average, and in order to reach his ceiling as a number three starter at the major league level, he'll need to carry his excellent control over to the next level.

Greg Holland allowed two unearned runs in the 10th inning Sunday, and will be on the hook Sept. 22nd when the suspended affair resumes action.

With two outs in the 10th inning, Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis reached first on a fielding error by Billy Butler. Then Catcher Yan Gomes singled, and Lonnie Chisenhall followed up with two-run double before the game was suspended until sept. 22nd. Holland will be on the line for the loss when play resumes.

Cody Allen blew a save opportunity Sunday night, allowing a game-tying home run to Alex Gordon in the ninth inning.

It was just Allen's second blown season of the season, and he still carries an impressive 1.80 ERA on the season with 79 strikeouts in 60 innings pitched. The uber-talented young closer will be a top 10 option at the position headed in 2015.

T.J. House pitched seven solid innings Sunday night against the Royals, allowing five hits, no walks, one run and five strikeouts.

The outing dropped his ERA below 4.00 for the season (3.92). He's been inconsistent in the Indians rotation so far, alternating implosions with impressive outings. With the departure of Justin Masterson, House should continue to get chances at the back-end of the Indians rotation. He's worth watching in AL-Only formats.

Yan Gomes went 4-for-5 in Sunday night's suspended game against the Royals, scoring two runs.

Gomes has quickly become one of the league's best offensive catchers -- he's not shabby with the glove, either. The big game lifts his season slash to .285/.324/.476 with 17 home runs and 54 RBI in 111 games. His allergy to walks is the only downside to his overall game, which really only matters to those of us in OBP formats. He's a Top 5-7 catcher in 5 x 5 formats headed into 2015.

Alex Gordon went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI.

Gordon has been one of the MLB's hottest hitters, as he's now slugged six home runs in his last eleven games. For the season, he's slashing .280/.355/.457 with 18 home runs and 8 steals. He's been one of the league's most productive hitters and should cash in this offseason should be decline his option for 2015.

Danny Duffy pitched 6.2 innings Sunday night, giving up two runs (one earned), striking out six and walking three.

Despite a humble 8-11 win-loss record, Duffy has been extremely effective. For the season, he owns a stellar 2.42 ERA over 141 1/3 innings pitched. His pitching independent numbers suggest he's been lucky, however, so unless his mediocre strikeout 108/50 strikeout-walk ratio improves he's unlikely to repeat this degree of success in 2015.

The Royals vs. Indians game at Kauffman Stadium Sunday night has been suspended. It's set to be finished Sept. 22nd.

The Indians are currently winning 4-2 in the 10th inning. Indians closer Cody Allen allowed a game-tying home run in the ninth inning, but Greg Holland promptly gave up two unearned runs in the top of the tenth. This wild affair will continue at a later date.

The Blue Jays have acquired outfielder John Mayberry Jr. from the Phillies.

Mayberry is on the DL with a wrist injury but thoughts were the Phillies would activate him once rosters expand. With the trade to the Blue Jays Mayberry will provide some depth of the bench with the ability to play in the outfield and first base. With the Phillies Mayberry was hitting .213 with 11 runs, six home runs and 21 RBI.

Evan Gattis blasted his 21st home run of the year, a solo shot, and the Braves edged the Marlins 1-0 on Sunday. 

The catching market has been rather weak this season but Gattis continues to shine. Gattis will be a preseason top-five catcher next season and owners who have him this year are experiencing quality numbers from a saturated catching market. Start Gattis daily with extreme confidence.
