    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.

    Jhon Romero Sep 24 3:03am ET

    Washington Nationals OF Yadiel Hernandez was placed on the paternity list on Thursday, Sept. 23. In a corresponding move, RHP Jhon Romero was promoted from Triple-A Rochester.

    Wade Miley Sep 24 3:03am ET

    Cincinnati Reds LHP Wade Miley (neck) had his start scheduled for Friday, Sept. 24, pushed back due to tightness around his neck.

    Cody Bellinger Sep 24 2:43am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers OF Cody Bellinger (rib) could start swinging a bat as early as Saturday, Sept. 25, as he works his way back from a fractured left rib.

    Chris Taylor Sep 24 2:43am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers INF/OF Chris Taylor (neck) was not in the starting lineup for a second straight game on Thursday, Sept. 23, due to a sore neck, but he did appear as a pinch hitter.

    Tyrone Taylor Sep 24 2:09am ET

    Brewers' CF Tyrone Taylor had five RBIs going 2-for-4 with two home runs in a 8-5 loss to the Cardinals on Thursday, Sep. 23.

    Charlie Morton Sep 24 12:20am ET

    Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Charlie Morton has unfortunately not received much run support whenever he is on the mound. He's gotten a no-decision or a loss in nine of his 18 quality starts. On Thursday, Morton went six innings, five hits allowed, three earned runs, two walks, and eight strikeouts in the 6-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Morton exited after giving up one run, but left two base runners on that eventually scored and were charged to him. Despite having some tough luck, Morton is posting a 3.53 ERA and is a solid streaming option and DFS choice whenever he takes the mound.

    Austin Riley Sep 24 12:20am ET

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Austin Riley has been on quite a hot streak lately. On Thursday, he went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in what ended up being a 6-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Riley finished that four game series going 7-for-17 with three doubles, three homers and eight RBI. He now has 32 home runs on the season and is three runs batted in away from the century mark. There is a good chance that he'll hit 100 RBI before the season ends.

    Adam Wainwright Sep 24 12:10am ET

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright had a rare bad start in Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Cardinals eventually ended up winning their 12th game in a row, but Wainwright lasted just four innings, allowing five runs on four hits and two walks. He only struck out one and allowed two home runs. He ended up with a no decision, but saw his ERA rise to 3.05.
