Gallo will be examined again Monday and may rejoin the team later in the day in Los Angeles with the team opening a four-game set against the Angels. He should be considered day-to-day until further information surfaces, though it sounds like a stint on the disabled list could very well be on tap.
Aguilar made the most of his at-bats at Coors Field over the weekend, finishing 4-for-5w with three homers, four runs and five RBI. He's now hitting .275 with 14 long balls in his first full big-league season and continues to provide a solid source of secondary production for the Brew Crew as they battle for a playoff berth.
Cuthbert has started sparingly since returning from the disabled list Aug. 8, and even after Sunday's strong outing, he projects to return to a depth role. There aren't many fantasy setups where he's a viable option.
Gyorko's bomb was one of the lone bright spots for the Cardinals at the Little League Classic, as they weren't able to plate many runs despite recording 11 hits. Nonetheless, Gyorko now has 17 round-trippers on the season, which puts him on pace to fall markedly short of last year's career-high output of 30.
Bell played the hero in front of a few thousand lucky fans in Williamsport, smacking a two-run bomb in the first inning off Cardinals starter Mike Leake before singling in a couple more runs in the third. He's been productive of late with 13 RBI over his last nine contests, giving the first baseman an impressive 72 in his sophomore season.
This was Lindor's first multi-hit showing in 13 games, and he posted a disastrous .523 OPS during that stretch. It's been a rare slump for the shortstop, though. Lindor boasts a respectable .266/.322/.463 slash line with 20 homers, 58 RBI, nine stolen bases and 66 runs for the year, which are solid marks in the majority of fantasy settings.
The Pirates' hitters wasted no time in front of 3,000 fans at the Little League Classic in Williamsport, knocking Leake out of the game before the fourth inning. Leake is now riding an ugly four-game losing streak and is 1-6 over his last nine starts -- allowing seven or more hits seven times during that span -- so he's definitely one starting pitcher to avoid right now if possible.
After collapsing in the second half last season (.663 OPS), it's encouraging to see Lamb maintain most of his fantasy value into August this year. He's up to seven homers and 28 RBI through 32 games since the All-Star break, and while his .223 batting average underwhelms, the slugger is moving the needle in the power categories. Still, don't forget that Lamb still hasn't figured out southpaws and sports a .593 OPS against lefties this year.
Nova's performance in the Little League Classic in front of around 3,000 fans wasn't his best, but he pitched well enough to get back above .500 on the season. The big right-hander continues to maintain an ERA (3.81) and WHIP (1.22) slightly better than his career marks of 4.21 and 1.34 through 25 starts this season, as he continues to hold down the No. 3 spot in the Pirates' rotation behind Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon.
After losing out on playing time, Drury suited up for all three games during the series against Minnesota. Obviously, the ability to utilize a designated hitter opened additionally opportunities for Drury, but this showing should help him receive more starts moving forward. After all, he's now registered six extra-base hits through his past 21 at-bats. Still, he's far from a reliable fantasy option at this stage of the game.
This was Martinez's ninth homer with Arizona, and he sports a rock-solid .903 OPS since moving to the National League. He's also settled into a cushy fantasy setup hitting behind Paul Goldschmidt in the heart of the D-backs' lineup and projects to remain a high-end fantasy asset throughout the stretch drive.
This was just the sixth start in August for Gimenez, so while it was a noteworthy performance, he isn't receiving enough playing time to move the needle in the majority of the fantasy settings. Additionally, Gimenez's .204/.323/.372 slash line is nothing to write home about.
