  • Player Notes
    Alex Bregman Oct 21 6:30pm ET

    Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman is hitting second and playing third base for Game 7 of the Championship Series against Yankees starter CC Sabathia on Saturday. Against the southpaw, outfielder Josh Reddick drops to ninth in the order. Bregman has just seven hits in 38 postseason at-bats (.184) this year, but he does have two long balls and five RBI, and his move up the lineup makes him a DFS sleeper. He's 0-for-3 with a strikeout against Sabathia, but Bregman did hit a cool .331 against lefties in 2017.

    Justin Verlander Oct 21 4:00pm ET

    Justin Verlander shut down the Yankees again, this time twirling seven shutout innings while striking out eight to force a Game 7 in the ALCS. In 16 innings pitched against the Yankees, Verlander has allowed zero runs while striking out 21 hitters. Verlander only needed 99 pitches in a game where the Houston offense busted the game open midway through. With the World Series on the line, it would not be a surprise to see Verlander possibly make a quick appearance out of the bullpen in Game 7.

    Charlie Morton Oct 21 3:50pm ET

    The Astros will put their World Series hopes in the hands of right-hander Charlie Morton as they take on the Yankees in Game 7 of the ALCS. Morton was lit up for seven runs in 3 2/3 innings by the Yankees earlier in the series and will have a very short leash. Morton's 10.13 postseason ERA obscures the fact that Morton was a workhorse this season, winning 14 games and striking out 163 batters in 146 2/3 innings this season. With the season on the line, pitchers like Lance McCullers and Dallas Keuchel will also be available out of the bullpen.

    Charlie Morton Oct 21 11:40am ET

    Houston Astros starting pitcher Charlie Morton has been tabbed to start Game 7 of the Championship Series against the Yankees on Saturday. However, manager A.J. Hinch said he won't be afraid to use as many pitchers as it takes to get 27 outs, meaning Morton will be on a very short leash if he's ineffective early. Morton was the loser in Game 3, allowing seven runs in just 3 2/3 frames. The right-hander has struggled in the postseason, but he went 14-7 with a 3.62 ERA and 163 K's in 146 2/3 innings during the regular season.
