    D.J. Stewart Oct 18 6:00pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder D.J. Stewart (ankle) underwent successful microfracture surgery on his right ankle on Thursday. Stewart is expected to return to baseball activities near the end of spring training. Microfracture procedures aren't your typical surgery, so Stewart should be expected to miss the start of the 2020 regular season, and he could be slowed upon his return. The 25-year-old played in just 44 games for the O's this year, hitting .238/.317/.381 with four home runs and 15 RBI. There is opportunity for him in Baltimore's outfield moving forward, but he'll have to prove his health and win a job before fantasy owners take notice.

    Elvis Andrus Oct 18 5:50pm ET

    Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus won't opt out of the $43 million and three years left on his current deal. The 31-year-old is making the right decision after hitting .275/.313/.393 with 12 home runs, 72 RBI and 31 stolen bases in 147 games for Texas in 2019. It was Andrus' first time going over 30 steals since 2011, but his power numbers were again down after slugging a career-high 20 round-trippers in 2017. Injuries will also become an issue as the shortstop ages on the wrong side of 30. Don't expect Andrus to return to the 20-homer mark again, so a decent batting average and some speed is what you can bank on with him moving forward.

    Jake Marisnick Oct 18 4:30pm ET

    Houston Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick is starting in center field and is batting ninth against Yankees left-hander James Paxton in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series on Friday. With the southpaw on the mound, Josh Reddick will take a seat for this one. Marisnick is mainly used late in games for his defensive prowess. He hit just .225 (23-for-102) with four home runs and 14 RBI against left-handers this year, so DFS gamers will likely want to shy away from the light-hitting Marisnick. He slashed .233/.289/.411 with 10 homers, 34 RBI and 10 steals in 292 at-bats this year.

    James Paxton Oct 18 3:50pm ET

    New York Yankees starter James Paxton will take the mound in Game 5 in hopes of keeping the Yankees alive for one more game in the ALCS. Paxton lasted only 2 1/3 innings on October 13 against the Astros, getting pulled after allowing one run, walking two and surrendering four hits. Much has been made about the big left-hander possibly tipping pitches in his last start and will need to pitch deeper into the game. Paxton posted a 3.35 ERA at home in the regular season but will have a tough task taking down an Astros offense that has torched left-handed pitching this season.

    Aaron Judge Oct 18 3:50pm ET

    New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge will hit second in a struggling lineup as the Yankees will try and stave off elimination against the Astros in Game 5. Judge homered in Game 2 but has failed to make a consistent impact, slugging only .412 in the series. Judge disappointed, at times, against right-handed pitching in the regular season, slashing only .247/.349/.498 in contrast to posting a 1.124 OPS against opposing lefties. The Astros will send their ace, Justin Verlander, to the mound in Game 5. Judge will need to step up in order to extend the series.

    Gleyber Torres Oct 18 3:40pm ET

    New York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres will start and hit third in Game 5 of the ALCS against the Astros. Torres has been the only consistent offensive threat for the Yankees over the last week and continues to get elevated in the lineup. The 22-year-old has been fantastic throughout the entire postseason, slashing .345/.406/.793 with three home runs, four doubles and 10 runs batted in through 29 postseason at-bats. Torres is slugging .706 in the ALCS and the Yankees need him now more than ever in this elimination game.

    Giancarlo Stanton Oct 18 3:30pm ET

    New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton will start and hit cleanup in the Yankees crucial Game 5 matchup against the Astros. Stanton has not played since October 12 with a quadriceps injury but it is do-or-die for the Yankees season. Stanton went 2-for-4 with a home run in Game 1 of the series and will handle the DH duties while Edwin Encarnacion takes a seat. Stanton has only one hit in eight career at-bats against Verlander but that one hit left the yard. It is fair to estimate that Stanton may not play the whole game but wants to help the team however he can.

    DJ LeMahieu Oct 18 3:30pm ET

    New York Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a double and one walk in the Yankees Game 4 loss to the Astros in the ALCS. The Yankees offense has been shut down over the past few games, but LeMahieu continues to rake. The veteran is 7-for-17 (.412) in the ALCS with three walks and four runs scored. The Yankees will go up against Justin Verlander in Game 5, and LeMahieu came into the series hitting .333 (5-for-15) against the veteran pitcher in his career. LeMahieu is one of the few safe bets in the Yankees lineup right now.

    Edwin Encarnacion Oct 18 3:20pm ET

    New York Yankees designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion is having a brutal ALCS, going only 1-for-15 (.067) through the first four games. Things will not get easier for the slugger in Game 5 against the Astros Justin Verlander. In 41 career at-bats against the veteran pitcher, Encarnacion is hitting only .122. The Yankees offense has been shut down the past few games and will need the middle of their order to produce. But Encarnacion does not have a favorable matchup for Game 5.

    George Springer Oct 18 3:10pm ET

    Houston Astros outfielder George Springer popped a huge three-run home run to take down the Yankees in Game 4 of the ALCS. Springer and Co. are now one win away from winning the pennant and will face left-handed starter James Paxton in Game 5. It has been a very quiet postseason for the leadoff man and is 0-for-7 against left-handed pitching in the playoffs. But Springer posted a .504 slugging percentage against lefties in the regular season and a .475 clip in 2018. Springer will be a threat every time he steps to the plate in Game 5.

    Carlos Correa Oct 18 3:10pm ET

    Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa hit a huge three-run home run to lead the Astros past the Yankees in Game 4 of the ALCS. Houston is now one win away from getting back to the World Series for the second time in three seasons, and Correa has come up with some huge hits. Correa is slugging .588 through the first four games of the series with one double, two home runs and five runs batted in. The shortstop will also have a positive matchup against left-handed starter James Paxton in Game 5. In 65 regular season at-bats against lefties, Correa slashed .308/.423/.538 with eight extra-base hits.

    Yordan Alvarez Oct 18 3:00pm ET

    Houston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez is only 1-for-15 (.067) in the ALCS as the Astros will try and win the pennant in Game 5 against the Yankees. The rookie phenom has torn through the league all season and hit .375 in the ALDS but now is slugging only .294 through 34 postseason at-bats. The slugger will, however, have a positive matchup against the Yankees starter, left-hander James Paxton. Alvarez posted a 1.038 OPS against lefties in the regular season with nine home runs and 12 doubles in only 114 at-bats.

    Alex Bregman Oct 18 3:00pm ET

    Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman will have a favorable matchup in Game 5 against the Yankees left-handed starter James Paxton. Bregman went 1-for-4 in Game 4 with a double and two runs scored and now the Astros are one game away from the World Series. Bregman has absolutely destroyed left-handed pitching this season, slashing .350/.443/.742 with 31 extra-base hits in 163 regular season at-bats. Those splits have carried over to the postseason and is 3-for-7 against lefties in the playoffs. Bregman will be a strong fantasy play in Game 5.

    Jose Altuve Oct 18 2:50pm ET

    Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve will be a player to watch in Game 5 of the ALCS against the Yankees. Altuve has been, by far, the Astros best offensive player in the playoffs and now will have a juicy matchup against Yankee starter James Paxton. Altuve has crushed left-handed pitching all season, slashing .331/.380/.677 with 10 doubles and 11 home runs in 130 regular season at-bats. The former MVP also is 3-for-7 (.429) against lefties in the playoffs and will be one of the safest fantasy bets for Game 5.

    Justin Verlander Oct 18 2:40pm ET

    Houston Astros starter Justin Verlander will take the mound in Game 5 of the ALCS with the intention of sending the Astros to the World Series. This will be the fourth time Verlander has faced the Yankees in the playoffs and the veteran has a 1.19 ERA against them with 28 strikeouts. Verlander pitched 6 2/3 innings on October 13, allowing two runs while striking out seven. The right-hander has been fantastic pitching on the road in the regular season as well, posting a 2.82 ERA, a 0.76 WHIP and holding home opponents to a measly .164 batting average in 17 road starts.

    CC Sabathia Oct 18 2:10pm ET

    The New York Yankees replaced starting pitcher CC Sabathia (shoulder) on the American League Championship Series roster on Friday with reliever Ben Heller. Sabathia suffered a subluxation of his left shoulder joint in his relief appearance in the Game 4 loss to the Astros on Thursday night. The left-hander announced before this season that 2019 would be his last, so unfortunately Sabathia will end his career in the playoffs on a sour note. The veteran hurler spent his last 11 seasons in pinstripes and should get into the Hall of Fame eventually.

    Freddie Freeman Oct 18 2:10pm ET

    Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman (elbow) underwent arthroscopic right elbow surgery on Wednesday in New York. Dr. David Altchek removed three fragmented loose bodies and cleaned up multiple bone spur formations in Freeman's elbow. The All-Star first baseman is expected to be ready for spring training in 2020. The 30-year-old had a quiet National League Division Series against the Cardinals but hit a career-high 38 home runs and drove in 121 runs in 158 games in 2019. He'll continue to be an early-round target as one of the best all-around first baseman in the league.
