    Jose Abreu Sep 28 9:00am ET

    Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu has had a bit of a streaky season. He was absolutely fantastic in August, when he mashed 10 home runs and posted an OPS of 1.043. However, he's slowed down a good amount in September as he's only hit one home run so far this month while slashing .256/.394/.359. The 34-year-old veteran has 113 RBI on the year, which is second in the majors behind only Salvador Perez, who has 117. Abreu has a 92.1 mph average exit velocity that ranks in the 89th percentile. However, his .251 xBA is the lowest xBA he's ever had, down from a career-high .299 last year.

    Whit Merrifield Sep 28 9:00am ET

    Kansas City Royals second baseman/outfielder Whit Merrifield is second in the majors in stolen bases on the year with 40. He trails only Starling Marte, who has 45. However, Merrifield hasn't been very aggressive on the base paths in September. He's only attempted a steal three times this month, converting 2-of-3 attempts. In August, conversely, he went 11-for-13 in stolen base attempts. The 32-year-old veteran has slashed .278/.318/.396 on the year. His power output has been disappointing as he has just 10 home runs, but his stolen base expertise and his 93 runs on the year have made him a strong fantasy asset regardless.

    Nick Anderson Sep 28 8:40am ET

    The Tampa Bay Rays placed relief pitcher Nick Anderson (back) on the 10-day injured list with a lower back strain on Monday. He'll miss the remainder of the regular season, but he'll be eligible to return for Game 1 of the ALDS. The 31-year-old right-hander has been plagued with injuries this year. He's only appeared in six games and he's pitched to a 4.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP while converting his only save opportunity. He was dominant in 2020, maintaining a 0.55 ERA and 0.49 WHIP while striking out 26 over 16.1 innings. We'll see if he can work his way back into a high-leverage role with the team next year.

    Starling Marte Sep 28 8:30am ET

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Starling Marte (lat) was held out of Monday's game against the Seattle Mariners. According to Athletics manager Bob Melvin, Marte is dealing with left lat soreness. He received some treatment on the injury on Monday. It isn't quite clear at this point how severe the injury is. Seth Brown got the start in center field on Monday and could continue to man the position if Marte misses additional time. Marte has been fantastic since being acquired from the Miami Marlins prior to the trade deadline. Over 52 games with the Athletics, he's slashing .317/.359/.466 with five home runs, 23 stolen bases, 29 RBI and 34 runs.

    Tyler Anderson Sep 28 8:30am ET

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Tyler Anderson has been named the starter for Tuesday's game against the Oakland Athletics. Mariners manager Scott Servais made the announcement after Monday's game. Yusei Kikuchi was originally slated to start the game and it isn't clear at this point if his turn is being skipped or if he's being pushed back. Anderson will be starting on short rest. He pitched on Saturday, but only threw 54 pitches as he got absolutely hammered by the Los Angeles Angels, giving up nine runs over two innings. He had been pitching well before that outing, but he shouldn't be trusted by fantasy managers on short rest and while coming off such a dud.

    Salvador Perez Sep 28 8:20am ET

    Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez was removed after the eighth inning of Monday's game against the Cleveland Indians. He took a foul ball off his face mask in the seventh inning of the game. He initially stayed in the game and went up to bat in the eighth inning. He made the last out of the eighth inning, then he was replaced by Cam Gallagher in the ninth. The team hasn't said anything about a potential injury to Perez so he was likely removed as a precaution in a game the team went on to lose 8-3. Fantasy managers should be able to safely assume he's fine. Perez went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Monday's game. Over 155 games on the year, he's slashing .275/.315/.541 with 46 home runs, 117 RBI and 83 runs.

    Brendan Rodgers Sep 28 8:10am ET

    Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers (head) was removed from Monday's game against the Washington Nationals in the first inning after being hit in the helmet by a pitch. Fortunately, he went on to pass all concussion protocols. He should be considered day-to-day. Rodgers has been hitting well lately with a .302/.323/.510 slash line in September. He has 15 home runs, 48 RBI and 47 runs over 97 games on the year. The 25-year-old has been plagued with injuries for several years, but we've finally gotten an extended look at him in the majors and he's delivered some solid production. He'll be a good mid-round target in drafts next spring.

    James Paxton Sep 28 8:10am ET

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton (elbow) extended his throwing range on Monday, playing catch from 60 feet. He'd been throwing from shorter distances for two weeks prior to Monday. Paxton underwent Tommy John surgery in April and is in the midst of the long post-surgery recovery. If he continues to progress well, he could be ready for MLB action around midseason next year. The Mariners signed Paxton to a one-year deal this past offseason and he suffered his season-ending injury just 24 pitches into his first start of 2021. It's yet to be seen as to whether the 32-year-old will return to the Mariners next year or hit the free agency market again.

    Brandon Belt Sep 28 6:10am ET

    San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt (thumb) underwent x-rays on Monday, which revealed a fractured thumb. He exited Sunday's game early after getting hit in the hand by a pitch while attempting a bunt. The 33-year-old will continue to meet with doctors to develop a recovery plan and a timetable for a return. Belt is considered day-to-day, but the injury comes at a terrible time for the Giants' first baseman, with the playoffs starting next week. He slashed .349/.451/.721 with nine home runs, 18 RBI, and 23 runs through September before getting injured. Tommy La Stella will handle first base duties while Belt is sidelined. The 32-year-old is starting to heat up and is hitting .429 (6-for-14) with a home run and three RBI over his last four games. Fantasy managers looking for a replacement for Belt can add La Stella for the season's final week.

    Nick Castellanos Sep 28 3:03am ET

    Cincinnati's RF Nick Castellanos had five RBIs going 1-for-2 with a home run in a 13-1 win over the Pirates on Monday, Sep. 27.

    Mitch Haniger Sep 28 2:23am ET

    Seattle's LF Mitch Haniger had six RBIs going 2-for-5 with two home runs in a 13-4 win over the Athletics on Monday, Sep. 27.

    Ryan McMahon Sep 28 1:40am ET

    Colorado Rockies third baseman Ryan McMahon went 1-for-4 with a double, three RBI, one walk, a stolen base, and a strikeout in a 5-4 loss to the Washington Nationals on Monday. McMahon delivered the biggest hit of the day for the Rockies as he swatted a bases-loaded double off Josiah Gray, scoring three runs. It was his only hit of the ball game but he did reach once more with a walk and swiped his sixth bag of the season. The 26-year-old infielder is now slashing .254/.333/.448 with 22 home runs, 80 RBI, and six thefts over 507 at-bats this year.

    Brendan Rodgers Sep 28 1:33am ET

    Colorado Rockies SS Brendan Rodgers (concussion) left the game Monday, Sept. 27 against the Washington Nationals after being hit in the helmet by a pitch. He was able to pass all concussion protocols.

    German Marquez Sep 28 1:30am ET

    Colorado Rockies starting pitcher German Marquez took the loss on Monday as he allowed four runs on six hits with two walks and four strikeouts over five innings in a 5-4 loss to the Washington Nationals. Marquez was looking good through the first three innings before falling apart in the fourth. He served up three runs in that frame and Juan Soto followed that up with an RBI groundout in the fifth. The Rockies didn't provide enough run support--they didn't even score a run until after Marquez exited the game--and he was saddled with the loss. The 26-year-old really faded down the stretch, notching just one quality start over his last seven outings. He'll have one more shot to right the ship on Sunday against the Diamondbacks on the road. He'll carry a 4.40 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 176:64 K/BB ratio over 180 innings (32) starts into that one.

    Trevor Story Sep 28 1:30am ET

    Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story went 1-for-3 with a single, two runs scored, two walks, and a strikeout in a 5-4 loss to the Nationals on Monday. Story has a solid day at the dish, reaching three times and scoring a pair of runs. Monday's effort snapped an 0-for-9 streak for the 28-year-old shortstop. It's been an underwhelming season, as far his Story's standards go, as he's slashing just .245/.324/.465 with 23 home runs, 73 RBI, and 19 stolen bases over 510 at-bats. He could be playing his final games with the Rockies over the coming week as he's set to become a free agent this winter and should command plenty of attention on the open market.

    Joey Votto Sep 27 10:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 2-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in a 13-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. Votto hit a pair of two-run homers in the lopsided win, one in the first inning and one in the fourth. The veteran infielder is wrapping up an impressive rebound season, hitting .270 with 35 homers, 71 runs, 96 RBI, and a steal over 433 at-bats. He is just three homers away from setting a new career-high after he hit 37 back in 2010.

    Reiver Sanmartin Sep 27 10:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds left-hander Reiver Sanmartin was impressive in the first MLB start of his career. Sanmartin allowed one run over 5 2/3 innings while striking out five in a 13-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. Sanmartin was called up to make a spot start after right-hander Luis Castillo had to go on the family medical emergency list on Monday. It is still unclear whether the Reds will keep Sanmartin in the big leagues or send him back to Triple-A Louisville following his Monday start.
