David Ortiz is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday.

Ortiz made a rare start at first base in Tuesday's win over the Reds, but will take a seat in favor of Mike Napoli in Wednesday afternoon's contest. The Red Sox move on to Houston following the game, meaning they will be back in an American League ballpark meaning Ortiz will be back in his usual role on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Clint Barmes went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Barmes has been used mostly off the bench for the Padres with Wednesday's start being just his fourth start in his last 10 games. Although his production was solid, it is hard to imagine he will earn enough playing time to warrant fantasy consideration in the final month of the season.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Brandon Moss went 3-for-5 with a home run, one RBI and one run scored against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Moss has three homers in his last four games, scoring four times and driving in five runs in the same span. He will drain your batting average, but he can leave the yard at any point. For the 2015 season he now has 19 home runs and 58 RBI.  Analysis: Colby Conway

Tyler Lyons allowed three earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six in six innings on Wednesday against the Nationals.

Lyons was impressive in a spot start, filling in for Michael Wacha on Wednesday evening. It’s tough to determine how long he will remain in the team’s rotation, but if he continues to pitch like this, he could be a serviceable option for owners down the stretch. He could make for a valuable play in DFS, especially since he should come with a relatively low price tag. If he does make another start for the Cardinals, it would come on Tuesday against the Cubs. Analysis: Colby Conway
