    Jose Suarez Sep 19 10:10am ET

    Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Jose Suarez (7-8) was hit with the loss in Saturday's game against the Oakland Athletics, in which they lost 3-1. Suarez threw 5.2 innings, giving up three runs, six hits, two walks, and he struck out three. All of the damage came in the first inning when he surrendered a home run and two doubles. Suarez now has a 3.67 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and 21.2 K% over 88.1 innings. Across 12 starts, however, his ERA is an elevated 4.43. Suarez is nothing but a streaming option in deeper leagues, allowing too many runs for his lack of strikeouts.

    Shane Bieber Sep 19 10:03am ET

    Cleveland Indians RHP Shane Bieber (shoulder) will pitch four innings or throw approximately 55-60 pitches in a rehab appearance for Class AA Akron Sunday, Sept. 19.

    Jonathan Loaisiga Sep 19 10:03am ET

    New York Yankees RHP Jonathan Loaisiga (shoulder) played catch Saturday, Sept. 18.

    Michael A. Taylor Sep 19 8:50am ET

    Kansas City Royals outfielder Michael A. Taylor had a strong game in the team's 8-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday. He went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and two RBI. The home run was his 12th of the year and his first since August 29. Taylor is slashing .246/.300/.361 over 133 games on the year with 12 stolen bases to go along with his 12 home runs. The 30-year-old has been buried in the Royals' lineup most of the year and just hasn't had the consistency needed to warrant fantasy intrigue.

    Adalberto Mondesi Sep 19 8:40am ET

    Kansas City Royals shortstop/third baseman Adalberto Mondesi helped the team defeat the Seattle Mariners 8-1 on Saturday. He went 2-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored. It was his second consecutive two-hit game. Mondesi had appeared in just 10 games this year before returning from the injured list at the start of September. He's provided solid fantasy value for any fantasy manager who waited on him or wisely swiped him off waivers. He's stolen nine bases over 13 games this month while also adding two home runs, seven RBI and eight runs.

    Tarik Skubal Sep 19 8:30am ET

    Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Tarik Skubal had another short start against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday. He pitched three innings and allowed three hits, no walks and two earned runs while striking out two. He was pulled after just 41 pitches as the team is currently managing his workload closely. He had gone exactly three innings in each of his two previous starts as well. Over 29 games (27 starts) on the year, Skubal is 8-12 with a 4.25 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. He'll make his next start at home against the Kansas City Royals on Friday.

    Kris Bubic Sep 19 8:30am ET

    Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Kris Bubic had a strong outing against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday. He pitched 6 1/3 innings and allowed two hits, four walks and one earned run while striking out two. He earned the win to improve to 5-6 on the year. The 24-year-old has pitched well in September with a 2.84 ERA over 19 innings. Saturday's start was his longest of the month and it was his first quality start since August 21. Over 27 games (18 starts) on the year, Bubic has a 4.80 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. He'll make his next start on the road against the Detroit Tigers next Friday.

    Derek Hill Sep 19 8:20am ET

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Derek Hill (leg) was carted off the field during the fifth inning of Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. He suffered a leg injury after falling to the ground hard while attempting to run out a bunt. He should undergo tests on Sunday, but it seems likely that he'll be headed to the injured list and his season may be over. The 25-year-old rookie has seen a good amount of run in the majors this year. He has appeared in 49 games for the Tigers this year, slashing .259/.313/.388 with three home runs, six stolen bases, 14 RBI and 19 runs.

    Michael Fulmer Sep 19 8:20am ET

    Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Michael Fulmer closed the door on Saturday's 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays to earn his 10th save of the year. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one walk and no hits while striking out one. The team's primary closer, Gregory Soto (hand), was likely unavailable for the game after he was hit in the hand by a comebacker on Friday. There's no word yet on the severity of Soto's injury, but if he lands on the injured list, Fulmer will be in good shape to earn further save opportunities going forward. Fulmer has a 3.18 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP on the year and he's converted 10 of his 14 save opportunities.

    Jeimer Candelario Sep 19 8:10am ET

    Detroit Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario had the biggest hit in the game in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. He went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk. He has now homered in two of his last three games and he has six home runs so far in September. The 27-year-old has done some good contact hitting this year with a .273 average over 139 games. However, he only had 10 home runs on the year before the calendar turned to September. He could be a much more valuable fantasy asset if he provided more consistent power to go along with his solid batting average. He's worth a look for fantasy managers in need of a reliable hitter down the stretch.

    Tyler O'Neill Sep 19 7:27am ET

    St. Louis Cardinals' RF Tyler O'Neill scored 32.5 fantasy points going 8-for-21 with three home runs and nine RBIs in five games this week. O'Neill is owned in 68.15% of mixed leagues.

    Shane Bieber Sep 19 7:10am ET

    Cleveland Guardians pitcher Shane Bieber (shoulder) will make a rehab start for Double-A Akron on Sunday. He has been sidelined since mid-June with a strained right shoulder. The 26-year-old will throw 55-60 pitches on Sunday. He allowed one earned run on three hits and a walk while striking out three across 2 2/3 innings in his previous rehab start with Triple-A Columbus. With two weeks left in the regular season, Bieber could return to the majors for a start or two. Fantasy managers need to temper expectations as Bieber will likely be on a pitch count if he is activated before the season ends. Stay tuned.

    Shane Baz Sep 19 6:50am ET

    Tampa Bay Rays pitching prospect Shane Baz (back) will make his major league Monday against the Toronto Blue Jays. He originally was scheduled to pitch Friday but was scratched due to back spasms. The 22-year-old posted a 2.06 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and a 12.9 K/9 across 78 2/3 innings between Double-A and Triple-A. Baz is the Rays' top prospect, but it's unclear if he will be on a pitch count for Monday's start. The Rays rookie phenom has a ton of upside and is worth rostering for the season's final two weeks. Despite the tough matchup against a loaded Blue Jays offense, Baz can be used as a streamer in Monday's slate.

    Evan Longoria Sep 19 6:50am ET

    Giants' 3B Evan Longoria had a slash line of .312/.353/.812 going 5-for-16 with 6 RBIs in four games this week. Longoria is owned only in 8.76% of mixed leagues.

    Brandon Belt Sep 19 6:48am ET

    Giants' 1B Brandon Belt scored 26.5 fantasy points going 7-for-25 with three home runs and six RBIs in six games this week. Belt is owned only in 29.21% of mixed leagues.

    Michael Brantley Sep 19 6:40am ET

    Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley (knee) will begin baseball activities Sunday. He was placed on the 10-day injured list with right knee discomfort last Wednesday. The 34-year-old missed over a week with a sore knee but wasn't put on the injured list until Wednesday. He is eligible to return next week, but the Astros will monitor the outfielder to see how his knee responds during baseball activities. Brantley is considered day-to-day. He slashed .315/.367/.441 over 116 games before the injury. Chas McCormick will continue to handle center field duties while Brantley is sidelined. McCormick can be used as a streamer in deep-leagues after hitting .235 (4-for-17) with a home run, five RBI, and six strikeouts over his last seven contests.

    Andrew Benintendi Sep 19 6:37am ET

    Royals' LF Andrew Benintendi had a slash line of .500/.522/.550 going 10-for-20 with 6 RBIs in five games this week. Benintendi is owned only in 38.25% of mixed leagues.

    Josh Harrison Sep 19 6:37am ET

    Oakland Athletics' 2B Josh Harrison scored 26.0 fantasy points going 9-for-21 and nine RBIs in five games this week. Harrison is owned only in 49.10% of mixed leagues.

    Nico Hoerner Sep 19 6:30am ET

    Chicago Cubs' second baseman Nico Hoerner (oblique) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. He has been sidelined since July with a right oblique strain after slashing .319/.388/.388 with three steals, 14 RBI, and 13 runs scored over 39 games this season. The 24-year-old is a speculative add in the final two weeks of the regular season as Hoerner will have an everyday second base role. Fantasy managers should check back on Sunday to ensure Hoerner is in the starting lineup before activating him.

    Lorenzo Cain Sep 19 6:20am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain (hip) exited Saturday's 6-4 win over the Chicago Cubs with right discomfort. The 35-year-old sustained the injury after he collided with the outfield wall while making a catch. He remained in the game but was eventually replaced by Jackie Bradley Jr. in the top of the fifth inning. Cain went 0-for-1 with a walk before exiting. The severity of his hip injury is unknown at this time and he's considered day-to-day. Bradley Jr. would see an uptick in playing time if Cain were to miss any games.
