    Didi Gregorius Sep 24 11:10am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Didi Gregorius went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a win over the Pirates on Thursday. The blast was Gregorius' 12th of the season as he's displayed decent power despite rough numbers overall. The veteran shortstop is batting just .210 on the season and his .270 on-base percentage simply won't get it done. His 16.9% strikeout rate is better than the league average, but it still represents a career-worst for Gregorius and the extra K's have sapped him of fantasy value in any format. Managers can confidently leave Gregorius on waivers heading into the last week of the regular season.

    J.T. Realmuto Sep 24 11:00am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto didn't get the start on Thursday versus the Pirates, but the veteran backstop still had a huge game after pinch-hitting for Brad Miller in the sixth inning. Realmuto went 3-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored, and four RBI as he helped Philly score 12 unanswered runs after Pittsburgh led 6-0 earlier in the contest. Realmuto will carry a strong .270/.352/.451 slash line into three more matchups with the Pirates over the weekend. He remains a must-start catcher in all fantasy formats.

    Ronald Torreyes Sep 24 10:50am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies infielder Ronald Torreyes hit a go-ahead three-run homer to help defeat the Pirates on Thursday. Torreyes didn't start the game and was greeted with boos from the Philly crowd as his pinch-hit appearance meant Aaron Nola was out of the game despite throwing just 80 pitches through six innings. Those boos turned to cheers with one swing of the bat as Torreyes launched a three-run homer to cap a six-run comeback. The diminutive utilityman has been a valuable asset for the Phillies off the bench and he sealed his place in Phillies lore if this win helps chase down Atlanta for a division title. He's less valuable in fantasy, however, and Torreyes should be left on waivers in all formats.

    Shohei Ohtani Sep 24 10:40am ET

    Los Angeles Angels designated hitter/starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani walked three times in four plate appearances while scoring once during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Houston Astros. He's now walked seven times in his last 10 plate appearances and is hitting .280 with a .486 OBP over his last eight games. Overall, he's slashing .255/.364/.589 with 45 HRs, 95 RBI, 96 runs, and 24 SBs across 149 games. However, since the All-Star break, he's slugged just .433 with 12 HRs. He'll continue to DH the rest of the season but isn't guaranteed to make his last start on Sunday against the Seattle Mariners. He's started 22 games this season and has a 3.28 ERA with a 28.9 K%. Fantasy managers should stay updated, as he's a must-start if he does face the lowly Mariners lineup.

    Alex Cobb Sep 24 10:30am ET

    Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Alex Cobb (8-3) held the Houston Astros to one run during his no-decision in Thursday's 3-2 loss. He pitched 5.2 innings, allowing three walks while striking out four. He got the first two outs in the sixth but then walked back-to-back hitters and gave up an RBI single before being pulled. Cobb doesn't seem to have lost it in his two starts after over a month on the injured list, pitching to a 0.84 ERA over 10.2 IP. Overall this season, he has a 3.46 ERA, 93 strikeouts, and 31 walks across 88.1 innings and 17 starts. He remains a productive fantasy pitcher, contributing in multiple categories.

    Byron Buxton Sep 24 10:30am ET

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a run scored in Thursday's win over Toronto. Buxton hit a 100.3 MPH single in the first inning- then ripped a 104.8 MPH double in the third inning, scoring on a Jorge Polanco single. The speedy outfielder is currently riding a six-game hitting streak, during which he's gone 8-for-23 with four doubles, four runs scored, an RBI, and a stolen base. Buxton has just a 16 percent strikeout rate- and a 77.6 percent contact rate, both improvements on his season-long numbers. In addition, he owns an incredible 63.2 percent hard-hit rate, meaning the power numbers should be around the corner for Buxton.

    Odubel Herrera Sep 24 10:10am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera went 3-for-5 with two runs scored to set the pace for a 12-run outburst versus the Pirates on Thursday. Herrera needed a game like this as he was sporting just a .292 on-base percentage through 19 September games and was in danger of being dropped out of the leadoff spot. On the season, Herrera is slashing .257/.310/.416 with 13 homers, 57 runs, 50 RBI, and six stolen bases as he's been a fringe starter in 12-14 team fantasy leagues. Those looking for help in runs scored can start Herrera as he's got three more good matchups with the Pirates on tap.

    Mitch Garver Sep 24 10:10am ET

    Minnesota Twins catcher Mitch Garver went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays. Garver started his day off with a 107.2 MPH single in the first inning, then added an RBI single in the third inning, which broke a 1-1 tie. The veteran backstop capped off his day with a 105.9 MPH double. Garver has missed about a month of action with a back issue but has ripped back-to-back three hit-efforts since returning from the injured list. With a .539 slugging percentage on the season, Garver is an upside option at the catcher position for fantasy managers in the playoffs.

    Michael Pineda Sep 24 10:00am ET

    Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Michael Pineda was victorious for the fourth straight time Thursday against the Blue Jays. Pineda pitched five innings, allowing two runs on eight hits while walking one. He struck out only two batters. The veteran right-hander has been phenomenal in September, posting a 1.93 ERA over 18 2/3 innings. The key for Pineda has been keeping the ball on the ground, as evidenced by his 41.3 percent groundball rate in September. Still, the low strikeout rate should give fantasy managers pause when turning to him, though a favorable matchup against the Tigers eases those concerns a bit.

    Aaron Nola Sep 24 9:30am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Nola allowed six runs across six innings, but still earned his ninth win of the season on Thursday versus Pittsburgh. As has been the case all year, Nola pitched significantly better than his final line indicates. He was one pitch away from escaping a bases-loaded jam in the second inning, but he gave up a bloop single. To the opposing pitcher. On an 0-2 pitch. The next batter hit an opposite-field three-run homer that barely escaped the yard. Sigh. Despite his night being soiled early, Nola buckled down and picked up eight K's and at one point retired 12 straight batters as he was absolutely cruising. He was pinch-hit for despite throwing just 80 pitches, but pinch-hitter Ronald Torreyes hit a go-ahead three-run homer, so it worked out to give Nola the win. Start him next week versus Atlanta. It's risky, but Nola is not as bad as his 4.64 ERA and he'll be a popular bounce-back candidate in 2022 drafts.

    Max Scherzer Sep 24 8:30am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Max Scherzer had his first bad outing in a Dodgers jersey on Thursday. Facing the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field, Scherzer pitched five innings and allowed six hits, one walk and five earned runs while striking out six. He wound up with a no decision as the Dodgers went on to win 7-5. The 37-year-old veteran hadn't allowed an earned run over his first 29 innings of the month of September. Thursday's outing increased his month-long ERA to 1.32 and his ERA over 10 starts with the Dodgers is now 1.43. He'll make one more start during the normal 162-game season against the San Diego Padres on Wednesday. The Dodgers appear likely to be playing a 163rd game or a Wild Card game after next weekend and Scherzer will be getting the ball for that game.

    Corey Seager Sep 24 8:30am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager helped the team defeat the Colorado Rockies 7-5 on Thursday. He went 4-for-5 with four singles and two RBI in the game. The 27-year-old has been swinging a hot bat in September. Over 20 games this month, he's slashing .348/.439/.507 with three home runs, 12 RBI and eight runs. Most impressively, he's struck out just six times this month while walking 12 times. After putting together a career-best .307/.358/.585 slash line in 2020, Seager has been a bit underwhelming on the whole this year. Over 86 games this season, he has a .289/.381/.456 slash line to go along with 10 home runs, 48 RBI and 45 runs. Luckily for fantasy managers, it looks like he's getting hot at the most important time.

    Yu Darvish Sep 24 8:20am ET

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Yu Darvish had a tough time on the mound in Thursday's game against the San Francisco Giants. He pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed three hits, three walks and four earned runs while striking out seven. Luckily, the Padres offense came alive for the game and the team went on to win in extra innings, so Darvish was left with a no decision. Darvish has now allowed at least four earned runs in five of his last seven starts. He's had a rough second half of the season and as a result, he has a 4.21 ERA on the year. Fortunately, he's still maintaining a solid 1.07 WHIP and a 29.2% strikeout rate. His next and final start of the year will be on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

    Matt Moore Sep 24 8:10am ET

    The Philadelphia Phillies placed pitcher Matt Moore (back) on the 10-day injured list on Thursday. The team called up fellow pitcher Cristopher Sanchez from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Moore is dealing with a lower back strain. The move to the injured list is retroactive to September 20. The 32-year-old southpaw has been in and out of the starting rotation this year. He's made 24 total appearances (13 starts) and he has a 6.29 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP. He'll be eligible to return during the team's final series of the year against the Miami Marlins, but there's a solid chance we've seen the last of him this season.

    Devin Williams Sep 24 7:40am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Devin Williams (calf) was unavailable during Thursday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals due to a calf injury. According to Brewers manager Craig Counsell, Williams injured his calf while doing some running in the outfield. Counsell told reporters that the team is hoping Williams can avoid a stint on the injured list. Williams had a rough start to the year, but he's been fantastic over the second half of the season. He didn't allow a single earned run over 19 innings across July and August. He has 23 holds on the year to go along with a 2.55 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP and a 38.6% strikeout rate.

    Wander Franco Sep 24 7:40am ET

    Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco (hamstring) is nearing a return to the team. According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, he is likely to be activated from the injured list either on Friday or Saturday. The 20-year-old rookie reportedly looked good in his rehab game at Triple-A on Thursday. He walked twice in the game and scored a run. Franco has been out since September 10 due to a strained right hamstring. He was really heating up before the injury, slashing .367/.424/.633 over his first eight games in September. Fantasy managers can expect to have him back in their lineups soon.

    Thomas Hatch Sep 24 7:30am ET

    The Toronto Blue Jays recalled pitcher Thomas Hatch (hamstring) prior to Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. He came on in relief during Thursday's game in the fourth inning, but was forced to leave the game in the fifth due to hamstring discomfort. His final line for the day was one hit, three walks and three earned runs over 1 2/3 innings. The 26-year-old right-hander has spent most of the year at Triple-A, pitching to a 4.04 ERA and a 1.91 WHIP over 64.2 innings. He's made three appearances (two starts) for the Blue Jays this year and he has a 6.75 ERA and a 1.82 WHIP across those three outings.
