Sandoval was replaced in the game by Orlando Calixte. The severity of the injury is unclear, and his status for Tuesday's game will likely depend on how much swelling appears overnight. Consider him day-to-day.
Goldberg had a four-out scoreless appearance in the conclusion of Monday's doubleheader, but he still exits the clubs with an 8.25 ERA over 12 innings of work. He had a horrid 3:14 K:BB -- no, that's not backwards -- in his 11 appearances and needs to fix his control issues before he has any chance of sticking in the majors for the long-term.
Fulmer gave up an 8.49 ERA over 11.2 innings in his first major league stint in 2016, and he doesn't look any more ready for the big time here in 2017. He may get another look when rosters expand, but considering his struggles at Triple-A (5.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP over 24 games) there's no reason to expect him to contribute in a significant way any time soon.
This was just the second start of the season for Gee (and his first with Minnesota), as he's mainly been used as a reliever this year. There's a chance that he sticks in the rotation for another turn, but expectations should remain in check since he hasn't been fully stretched out to pitch deep into games. He threw just 69 pitches Monday, after all.
Overall, it's been a bit of a disappointing fantasy showing for Ramirez this season, as his .248/.336/.437 slash line is hardly moving the needle. However, he's still posted respectable counting stats with 19 homers, 48 RBI and 50 runs, and the 33-year-old veteran is capable of padding his numbers in a hurry when he catches fire. Unfortunately, time is running out on the 2017 campaign.
While Benintendi isn't posting big numbers in any particular stat column, the rookie is turning in a strong cross-category showing. He's now up to a .279/.358/.449 with 18 homers, 70 RBI , 14 stolen bases and 64 runs. It's also encouraging that Benintendi appears to be solidifying himself as the No. 3 hitter in the lineup.
Wood missed a start in early June due to the same issue, which was initially thought to be a shoulder injury but turned out to be minor. The same discomfort has returned, so the Dodgers won't take any chances with their 14-1 pitcher as they nurse a gigantic National League West lead. Expect a disabled list announcement shortly.
The young lefty has struggled to find consistency since returning from the disabled list July 17 and entered Monday's outing with a 4.78 ERA and 1.47 WHIP during that six game stretch. Rodriguez has maintained an excellent strikeout ratio all season (9.8), and pitching for a winning team is an added bonus. However, considering his recent form, it's not out of the question to be conservative with his matchups. Rodriguez projects to face the Orioles at Fenway Park in his next start.
The last time Clevinger faced Boston he allowed five runs through three innings, so this was another underwhelming outing against the Red Sox. Still, there have been more solid outings than poor ones, and the 26-year-old righty sports a 3.97 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 10.1 K/9 for the campaign. With Cleveland in contention, Clevinger projects to continue moving the fantasy needle across all categories. He lines up to face the Royals at Progressive Field in his next start.
Cleveland scored the game-tying run in the bottom of the eighth inning, and then the Indians walked it off in the bottom of the ninth with Allen as the pitcher of record. While this was his first win of the season, Allen has recorded 21 saves with a 3.08 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 12.1 K/9. The 28-year-old righty is turning in another solid fantasy campaign.
This was an excellent outing from Walker after posting a 5.40 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through his previous four starts. There have been minor peaks and valleys throughout the season, but with a 3.66 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 8.0 K/9 for the campaign, he's a solid fantasy asset in the majority of settings. Walker lines up to face the Giants at Chase Field in his next start.
