Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher John Means improved to 11-11 in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Mariners. Means pitched seven innings, allowing a single run on seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts. The 26-year-old rookie has been a huge value for fantasy players this season, posting a 3.54 ERA with 116 strikeouts and 36 walks over 150 IP. He is slated for a tough matchup at the Red Sox this week, but he could certainly be started given how he has pitched all season.
Diamondbacks' SP Robbie Ray recorded 10 strikeouts in 5.1 innings in a 6-4 loss to San Diego on Sunday, Sep. 22.
Cubs' SP Yu Darvish recorded 12 strikeouts in 8.1 innings but took the loss in a 3-2 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, Sep. 22.
Texas Rangers' SP Lance Lynn recorded 12 strikeouts in 5.1 innings with the win in a 8-3 win over Oakland on Sunday, Sep. 22.
Kansas City Royal SS Adalberto Mondesi (shoulder) is done for the remainder of the season, according to manager Ned Yost, Sunday, Sept. 22. Mondesi's shoulder popped out of socket but returned to the joint. He will see a team physician Monday, Sept. 23.
Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) may be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Sept. 27, according to manager Brian Snitker.
St. Louis Cardinals INF Kolten Wong (hamstring) said he has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain and hopes to return for the final three games in St. Louis.
Boston Red Sox LHP David Price (wrist) is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday, Sept. 26, to remove a cyst from his left wrist. Manager Alex Cora said Price should be fine for the start of training camp.
Houston Astros RHP Brad Peacock (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Sept. 22.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Braun will get a routine rest day here, as the team wants to make sure the veteran slugger stays healthy. Ben Gamel will draw the start in left field and bat seventh versus righty Trevor Williams. Gamel is not someone worth looking at in DFS contests.
San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Braves. Posey was dealing with a back and hip issue earlier in the week, but appears fine now. The Giants are likely just giving their veteran catcher a regular rest day here. Aramis Garcia will draw the start behind the plate and bat eighth versus lefty Dallas Keuchel. Garcia is not worth looking at in DFS contests, so hopefully Posey is back in the lineup soon.
Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Betts returned to the outfield for the first time since September 12 on Saturday. He'll get a routine rest day here as the Red Sox want to be cautious with his foot issue. Gorkys Hernandez will bat seventh and play right field versus lefty Ryan Yarbrough. Hernandez hasn't done much with the bat this season, so he can be avoided in DFS contests.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Trey Mancini (leg) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners. Mancini was hit by pitches in the leg and is feeling some soreness in his left leg. The Orioles expect him to be back in the lineup within the next day or two. Chris Davis will cover first base and bat seventh versus lefty Marco Gonzales. Davis was already a rough option for DFS contests, but against a lefty he must be avoided.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette (head) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the New York Yankees. Bichette was hit in the helmet earlier this week, and hasn't played since being removed on Thursday. He still needs to clear the league's concussion protocol before being allowed to play again. The Jays are out of contention, so they may decide to let Bichette sit out for the rest of the season. Richard Urena will cover shortstop and bat seventh versus righty Luis Severino.
Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the New York Yankees. Guerrero injured his ribs earlier in the week, but appears to be fine now. This looks like it's just a routine day off for the young slugger. Brandon Drury will cover third base and bat eighth versus righty Luis Severino. Drury doesn't have much upside with the bat right now, so go ahead and ignore him.
Seattle Mariners second baseman Dee Gordon (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. Gordon went 0-for-6 in Saturday's game, so he'll take the day off against the left-handed starter. Shed Long will bat leadoff and cover second base versus lefty John Means. Long is hitting over .400 in the last week, and is an incredible DFS option for Sunday's contest.
Washington Nationals infielder Asdrubal Cabrera (ankle) is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Miami Marlins. Cabrera had to exit early during Saturday's contest due to a sore right ankle. Luckily, he does not need an MRI and is expected to be available off the bench on Sunday. Brian Dozier will cover second base and bat sixth versus righty Pablo Lopez. Dozier doesn't seem to have much upside with the bat anymore, so he can be ignored in DFS contests.
Seattle Mariners designated hitter Daniel Vogelbach (neck) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. This is a minor issue, but with the Mariners out of contention there is no need to rush Vogelbach back to the field. Tom Murphy will serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth versus lefty John Means. Murphy has actually been surprisingly decent with the bat, but probably won't have the best game against Means.
Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe (quad) has been activated from the 60-day injured list on Sunday. Manager Kevin Cash announced a month ago that Lowe would be out for the rest of the regular season due to a strained left quad. However, he's made a quick recovery and is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox. Lowe will bat fifth and play second base versus righty Nathan Eovaldi. This is actually a favorable matchup for Lowe, so DFS players should take notice.
Detroit Tigers designated hitter Miguel Cabrera (knee) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Cabrera was scratched from Saturday's game due to a sore right knee. It's likely that Cabrera sits quite a bit with the Tigers out of contention and a week left of the regular season. Christin Stewart will serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth versus righty Reynaldo Lopez. Stewart has been average with the bat, but doesn't offer much upside.
