UPDATES & NEWS
Jose Bautista had a monster game, going 3-for-4 with two home runs, four RBI and a pair of runs scored in Friday's loss to the Yankees.
Bautista went yard twice on Friday night, giving him three home runs over his last three games. The Blue Jays slugger is having himself a great season, slashing .297/.412/.524 with 20 home runs and 60 RBI through 347 at-bats. What is even more impressive is that he has taken more walks (66) than he has strikeouts (62), which is incredible for this late in the season for a power hitter on his level. He remains an elite fantasy option even if he slides a bit in the stretch run. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Carl Crawford exited Monday night's game with tightness in his right side.
It was only a matter of time before the glass-made Crawford cracked in some capacity. It's unknown whether or not he'll need a DL stint to rid him of the tightness, but if he does Scott Van Slyke and Alex Guerrero are likely to fill in for him. Guerrero has been among the hottest hitters in baseball, in a limited role, and would become mixed league relevant if/when he finds himself in the lineup. Don Mattingly, however, doesn't appear to be Guerrero's biggest fan. Let's hope he's not pigeon-holed to pinch-hitting duties. Analysis: Spencer Silva
