Melky Cabrera continues to swing a hot bat as he went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in a losing effort to the Indians on Sunday.
The Melk Man continues to deliver for the Jays as he went 8-for-14 (.571) with a triple, a double, a walk, three runs scored, and a stolen base in the three game series versus the Indians this weekend and is now hitting .345 on the season, which is third best in baseball. There is a good chance that some regression is on the horizon for Cabrera as he owns a career-high .358 BABIP and is walking under 3% of the time while striking out a little over 14% of the time so if you own him now may be the time to try and sell high.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jonathan Gray is expected to start for the Rockies Tuesday.
Gray was the third overall pick in 2013, but his minor league numbers have not exactly lived up to his lofty draft status. In 21 games at Triple-A this season, Gray has a 4.33 ERA, 3.89 FIP and 2.68 K/BB rate. While he probably needs to be owned in deeper leagues and keeper leagues, it is going to be awfully hard to feel confident starting him in Coors until he has some big league success. He could be a sneaky tournament play for DFS Tuesday against the strikeout-prone Mariners, but Gray could easily give up five home runs as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Nationals on Sunday.
Duda is absolutely on fire and is a must-start until he shows signs of slowing down. He became the first Mets player in franchise history to hit nine home runs in an eight-game span after his 21st bomb of the season tonight. Duda was middling around this summer until coming on strong this past week. In his last eight games he has nine homers, 11 hits and a ridiculous 1.393 slugging percentage. This is obviously something Duda won’t be able to keep up, but until he drops off keep him in your lineup. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
