Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers had two hits in Sunday night's game against the New York Yankees, going 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored, and a stolen base. Devers now has five steals on the season, a number which doesn't seem impressive at first, but does a lot to separate him from other bat-first players in roto and head-to-head formats. Devers is slashing .393/.414/.571 in his last seven games, and appears set to finish a very strong fantasy campaign on a high note.
Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson is absent from the starting lineup for Monday's game against Matt Manning and the Detroit Tigers. Leury Garcia is getting the start at shortstop for the game while Luis Robert is bumping up to the leadoff spot. Anderson has been seeing a few days off per week since returning from the injured list in mid-September. He missed about two weeks due to a hamstring injury to kick off the month. The team wants to manage his workload while looking ahead to the postseason. Anderson's power numbers have been down a bit this year, but he's been great otherwise. Over 118 games, he's slashing .302/.331/.460 with 16 home runs, 18 stolen bases, 58 RBI and 91 runs.
Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto (knee) is back in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Connor Overton and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Votto missed the team's previous two games while dealing with knee soreness. The 38-year-old veteran has a 1.051 OPS so far in September. He has 33 home runs on the year, just four shy of his career-high of 37, which he set back in 2010. It's been a fantastic revival campaign for the Red star who is slashing .268/.379/.557 over 124 games on the season. His .936 OPS on the year is his highest since 2017, up from .800 last year.
Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Nick Anderson allowed one earned run on one hit over a one inning during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins. He didn't strike anyone out and surrendered a solo blast to Lewis Diaz in the bottom of the ninth inning but still earned the save over the Marlins. The 31-year-old has now allowed an earned run over his last three appearances. Anderson will continue to split closing duties with Pete Fairbanks while incumbent closer Andrew Kittredge (shoulder) is sidelined. The Rays right-hander owns a 4.50 ERA with a 1:2 K: BB through six innings and can be rostered by fantasy managers searching for saves.
Tampa Bay Rays infielder Wander Franco went 2-for-4 with a double, a triple, and two runs scored in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins. He extended his on-base streak to 41 games and continues his impressive rookie campaign. The 20-year-old returned to the lineup Friday after missing two weeks with a hamstring injury. Franco is slashing .287/.350/.476 with seven home runs, 36 RBI, 51 runs scored, and two stolen bases over 280 plate appearances in 2021. Fantasy managers should continue to start Franco as he emerges as one of the top players in the game.
Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Shane Baz (2-0) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out nine batters over 5 2/3 scoreless innings during Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins. He picked up his second win of the season. The 22-year-old threw 82 pitches, firing 52 for strikes. He cruised through 5 2/3 innings and didn't let the Marlins get into scoring position until the sixth frame. Baz owns a terrific 1.69 ERA, 0.56 WHIP, and a 14:1 K: BB over his first two MLB appearances. Fantasy managers can start Baz in his final start against the New York Yankees on Saturday.
Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays. Buxton sent a ball 393 feet into the outfield at 100.8 MPH for his 16th long ball of the season. The speedy outfielder isn't hitting for average much, but owns a .511 slugging percentage with 17 runs scored, six homers, nine RBI, and two stolen bases in September. Buxton should be a mainstay in lineups while he's hitting this well.
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (9-2) pitched a brilliant game against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday, throwing seven innings with one run, no walks, and 10 strikeouts. He had little run support, however, and the Angels ended up losing 5-1. It's his second start in a row with 10 strikeouts and fourth overall on the year. Over 23 starts, the AL-MVP favorite has a 3.18 ERA, 29.3 K%, 8.3 BB%, and 1.09 WHIP across 130.1 IP. There's no word on if Ohtani will start again this season. He'll still help fantasy managers with his bat the rest of the way and has a .258/.371/.595 slash line with 45 HRs and 24 SBs.
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Jaime Barria (shoulder) landed on the 10-day injured list on Sunday with right shoulder impingement. His start on Saturday was cut short after just two innings, initially feeling arm fatigue. With six games left on the campaign, Barria will be out for the remainder of the season. He was having a tough season on the bump for the Halos, posting a 4.61 ERA, 35 strikeouts, and 19 walks over 56.2 innings. According to manager Joe Maddon, rookie Reid Detmers could start in Barria's place on Saturday against the Seattle Mariners. Detmers made four starts before landing on the injured list and being optioned to Triple-A on September 23. The top prospect has a 7.11 ERA with 17 strikeouts across 19 innings in the majors this year and should be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
New York Yankees relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman notched his 30th save of the season in Sunday's win over the Red Sox. Chapman had to work a bit, as he needed 20 pitches to navigate the ninth inning, though he got a five-pitch strikeout to end the game. The hard-throwing lefty became just the ninth reliever in baseball to reach the 30-save mark this season. Chapman has posted a 2.70 ERA with a 38.4 percent strikeout rate since the start of August. The veteran closer remains a strong relief option as fantasy managers head into their final matchups.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery delivered a solid effort despite the no-decision Sunday against the Red Sox. Montgomery pitched five innings, allowing one run on seven hits with zero walks issued. The lefty struck out four batters while generating nine whiffs. Montgomery has been brilliant over his last three starts, as he has allowed just three runs while posting a 22:2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He'll be a solid streaming option in his final scheduled start against the Rays. Montgomery owns a 3-1 record and a 3.18 ERA in 28 1/3 innings against Tampa Bay this year.
Kansas City Royals closer Scott Barlow made things interesting in the ninth inning of Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers, but he was able to get the job done in the end. Barlow entered the game as the Royals had a 2-0 lead in the ninth inning. He went on to give up two hits, two walks and one earned run before putting things away. Each of the three outs in the inning came through a strikeout. Barlow now has 16 saves on the year, six of which have come this month. He's converted each of his last eight saves opportunities dating back to late August.
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Wily Peralta wasn't able to keep the Kansas City Royals off the base paths on Sunday. He pitched 4 2/3 innings and allowed eight hits, three walks and two earned runs while striking out three. It took him 100 pitches to get through 4 2/3 innings. Peralta had been stellar on the mound this month prior to Sunday's outing. He had allowed just three earned runs over 21 innings in September and each of his last two outings before Sunday had gone for quality starts. He now has a 3.08 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP over 18 games (17 starts) on the year. His final start of 2021 will come against the Chicago White Sox on Friday.
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge (finger) went 1-for-4 with a key, two-run double in Sunday's win over the Red Sox. Judge ripped a 118.4 MPH double to give the Yankees a 4-3 lead in the eighth inning, though the slugger dislocated his pinky finger while sliding into second base. Judge said after the game that he's not concerned about the injury. The California native is slashing .284/.370/.533 with 36 homers, 92 RBI, 85 runs scored, and six stolen bases in 142 games played. With three extra-base hits and six RBI in his last five games, Judge should be considered a strong start in the upcoming series against the Blue Jays.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Kris Bubic had his best outing of the year on Sunday against the Detroit Tigers. He pitched seven innings and allowed two hits, one walk and no runs while striking out six. He earned the win to improve to 6-6 on the year. Bubic has quietly had a strong month of September. Over five starts this month, he's gone 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA. He hasn't been going very deep into his starts all year, but Sunday's outing was his second consecutive quality start. He'll make his final start of the 2021 season against the Minnesota Twins next Saturday.
The Philadelphia Phillies designated outfielder Matt Joyce for assignment on Sunday. The team selected the contract of pitcher Hans Crouse in a corresponding move and Crouse went on to start Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 37-year-old Joyce has been injured for a great deal of the season and he's struggled immensely at the plate when he's been active. Over 43 games this year, he's slashed .091/.261/.218 with two home runs, seven RBI and six runs.
New York Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Red Sox. LeMahieu rapped a couple of singles, one in the first inning and another in the fifth, with the latter base hit scoring a run for New York. The veteran infielder still hasn't hit for much power but owns the second-highest batting average of any calendar month in September, along with 13 runs scored atop the Yankee lineup. LeMahieu has also shown a most patient eye at the plate, as evidenced by his 12.4 percent walk rate and 10.3 percent strikeout rate in the month. It's been an up and down season for LeMahieu, but he's finishing strong for his fantasy managers.
The Chicago White Sox placed outfielder Brian Goodwin (back) on the 10-day injured list on Sunday. The move is retroactive to September 24. Goodwin is dealing with lower back spasms. Due to the timing of the move, he is ineligible to return from the injured list during the regular season. The White Sox called up relief pitcher Matt Foster to fill his roster spot. The 30-year-old Goodwin slashed .221/.319/.374 with eight home runs, 29 RBI and 33 runs over 72 games this year. He had been operating as a reserve outfielder lately as the team has a fully healthy outfield.
The Oakland Athletics placed both shortstop Elvis Andrus (leg) and second baseman Jed Lowrie (hand) on the 10-day injured list on Sunday. Both players are done for the regular season and can be dropped in all redraft fantasy leagues. Andrus was diagnosed with a fractured left fibula in his lower leg. He suffered the injury while running the bases in Saturday's game. Lowrie, meanwhile, has a sprained right hand that has been bothering him all month, forcing him to only bat left-handed in September. The Athletics activated Sam Moll from the paternity list and called up Vimael Machin from Triple-A to fill the two open roster spots.
Chicago Cubs third baseman Patrick Wisdom (wrist) was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals due to wrist soreness. Matt Duffy went on to draw the start at third base in his place. There hasn't been any indication of how severe Wisdom's injury is yet. He should be considered day-to-day. The Cubs are off on Monday before beginning a three-game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday. Wisdom has struggled at the plate this month, slashing .150/.261/.325 with three home runs, 11 RBI and eight runs scored.
