    Jake Faria Sep 25 2:40pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Jake Faria will make the start against the Yankees on Tuesday. He will only likely go a few innings, with Jalen Beeks likely to pitch as well. Faria hasn't started a game since Aug. 15, so it would make sense that he won't last long in this game. The right-hander has plenty of starting experience but has been set back by injuries this year and hasn't been very effective in his 16 outings (11 starts), with a 5.17 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 6.9 K/9. Against a Yankees team trying to keep home-field advantage for the wild-card game, Faria should be avoided.

    Roberto Osuna Sep 25 2:40pm ET

    Domestic-assault charges against Houston Astros closer Roberto Osuna were withdrawn on Tuesday, and he's entered into a peace bond for one year. He cannot contact the alleged victim for one year. Osuna served a 75-game suspension earlier this year and was then traded from the Blue Jays to the Astros, where he has taken over as the closer down the stretch. The right-hander has a 2.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 19 saves (10 with Houston) and an 8.3 K/9 in 21 outings. Osuna has been a strong closing option when he's been available this year.

    David Wright Sep 25 1:20pm ET

    The New York Mets activated third baseman David Wright (shoulder) from the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday. Wright will play in his final game this Saturday against the Marlins. The once-promising third baseman had his career derailed by a number of serious injuries and hasn't played in a big league game since May of 2016. It's a nice story to end the year for a Mets team that didn't have much go right this year other than ace Jacob deGrom. Wright shouldn't be trusted in fantasy lineups for his send-off.

    Michael Conforto Sep 25 1:20pm ET

    New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto has been one of the team's hottest hitters down the stretch. In his last 18 games, Conforto is hitting .319 with six home runs and 23 RBI. After struggling for the majority of the season, the 25-year-old has raised his batting average to .242 to go along with 27 homers and 80 RBI. It seems that Conforto has recaptured what made him such a valuable commodity in the middle of the New York order. He is someone to watch in fantasy drafts next season.

    Jose Pirela Sep 25 12:20pm ET

    San Diego Padres second baseman Jose Pirela went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Mondays win against the San Francisco Giants. The long ball was his just his fourth of the season and first since July 7. The 28-year-old offered some fantasy appeal after stroking 10 homers and a .837 OPS last season but crashed in 2018 with a poor .252/.305/.342 slash in 141 games. Pirela has fallen out of favor with the Padres in the second half and with a young crop of infielders ascending in 2019, hes likely not guaranteed a roster spot. The platoon man will try to finish the season on a strong note and hope his positional versatility lands him a major league gig next season.

    Bryan Mitchell Sep 25 12:10pm ET

    San Diego Padres starter Bryan Mitchell turned in a brilliant performance Monday, recording 8 2/3 shutout innings in a victory against the San Francisco Giants. Entering the game with a 6.16 ERA in 15 appearances (10 starts), this came out of nowhere. The righty surrendered seven hits and three walks in the contest while striking out seven. At risk of being left out of the Padres 2019 40-man roster, Mitchells September (2.19 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) has probably earned him another shot at cracking the rotation next year. Hell have one more opportunity in the season finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Wildly inconsistent, he shouldnt be a trusted streamer nor on fantasy radars going into the offseason.

    Jerad Eickhoff Sep 25 12:00pm ET

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Jerad Eickhoff, who missed most of the season with a lat strain and nerve issue in his right hand, could make a start in the final week of the season. He returned to the team earlier this month and has been pitching in relief. Manager Gabe Kapler said Eickhoff could "potentially" start one of the the final games. The right-hander made 33 starts two years ago and will likely report to spring training next year with a shot at a rotation spot if he's healthy. Eickhof has thrown just two innings in his two appearances out of the bullpen, so he wouldn't go long in a start and wouldn't make for a viable streaming option for fantasy owners.

    Kevin Pillar Sep 25 11:10am ET

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar was 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Houston Astros. Pillar has always been a mediocre fantasy asset, but he has managed to put up a career-high 58 RBI this season. His .249 average and .279 OBP showcase why he is hard to roster, but he has also chipped in 15 homers and 14 stolen bases. Regardless, Pillar is only worth owning in AL-only leagues or the deepest of mixed leagues.

    Marco Estrada Sep 25 11:00am ET

    Toronto Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada allowed four runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings of work during Monday's 5-3 loss to the Houston Astros. He struck out one and walked one in the outing. Estrada has been downright terrible for the majority of the entire season. He has a 7-14 record with a 5.64 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, and 103/50 K/BB ratio. Thankfully, this should be his last start of the regular season. He is someone to avoid in fantasy heading into 2019.

    Andrew Benintendi Sep 25 11:00am ET

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi was 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 6-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Benintendi has had a cold September, which has seen him fail to hit a home run while only tallying seven RBI and a .247 average. Benintendi still has outstanding numbers on the season with a .285/.363/.460 slash line to go along with 16 homers, 84 RBI, 100 runs scored, and 21 stolen bases. He remains one of the best sources of run production and speed, but he went cold at an inopportune time for fantasy owners. He is still a top-25 fantasy option for next season.

    Xander Bogaerts Sep 25 10:50am ET

    Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts was 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Monday's 6-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. He was feeling no ill-effects after leaving Sunday's game with a sore shoulder. Bogaerts has enjoyed a fantastic season that has seen him set career-highs in several different categories. The 25-year-old is slashing .286/.357/.509 with 21 homers, 96 RBI, eight stolen bases, and 68 runs scored. He has been a vital part of the Red Sox offense for the entire season and will earn a hefty contract this summer as he tests free agency for the first time.

    Nathan Eovaldi Sep 25 10:50am ET

    Boston Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi allowed one run on four hits through five innings of work in Monday's 6-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Eovaldi struck out 10 batters in the contest, which was a season-high. This was likely the final start of the regular season for Eovaldi and his role for the postseason is still unknown. The 28-year-old was a solid trade deadline acquisition for the Red Sox as he compiled a 3-3 record, 3.46 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 44/12 K/BB ratio through 52 innings with the team. He will be an unrestricted free agent heading into the 2019 offseason.

    Christian Yelich Sep 25 4:50am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich came through in big moments in the late innings Monday versus the Cardinals. In the sixth inning, he scored to give the Brewers a 2-1 lead. In the seventh inning, he drove in a run to tie the game at 4-4. And in the ninth inning, he would double to drive in an insurance run to make it 6-4, which would be the final score. Yelich has been a big factor for the Brewers this season with 32 HR, 96 RBI, and 108 runs scored. He also has stolen 21 bases. As of the end of September 24, Yelich leads the National League with a .321 batting average, a .576 slugging percentage and a .967 OPS. Yelich has been one of the better fantasy options in 2018.

    Ryan Braun Sep 25 4:30am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun stepped up in a big game Monday versus the Cardinals. He would homer to open the scoring and then drove in the second Brewers run. The offense was slow to get started but Braun did his part in the early going. The HR was his 16th of the season. Braun has not had a good season based on his career standards where he used to be one of the best offensive forces in the National League. He is only hitting .249 with 16 HR and 56 RBI which is not particularly impressive by the standards of fantasy outfielders, especially for a player who used to be a mainstay in the first round of drafts.

    Corey Kluber Sep 25 2:38am ET

    Cleveland's SP Corey Kluber recorded 11 strikeouts in 7.0 innings getting the win in a 4-0 win over Chicago on Monday, Sep. 24.

    Nathan Eovaldi Sep 25 2:19am ET

    Boston Red Sox's SP Nathan Eovaldi recorded 10 strikeouts in 5.0 innings getting the win in a 6-2 win over the Orioles on Monday, Sep. 24.

    Jeremy Jeffress Sep 25 1:20am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Jeremy Jeffress (neck) was unavailable to pitch on Monday due to neck spasms. In his absence, Corey Knebel closed out the win and earned the save in a big game against the division-rival Cardinals. Jeffress has been fantastic this year, going 8-1 with a 1.35 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 12 saves and a 10.3 K/9 over 70 appearances. Jeffress figures to get the majority of the save chances for the Brew Crew whenever he returns to the bullpen.

    Christian Walker Sep 25 1:20am ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Christian Walker (face) suffered a facial contusion when he was hit by a pitch on Monday. Walker was hitless in four plate appearances with two strikeouts before suffering his injury. He'll likely be evaluated for a concussion as well. Walker's season line drops to .163/.226/.388 with three homers and six RBI in just 53 plate appearances as a bench option in 2018. He was only getting the start with Paul Goldschmidt being rested.

    Aaron Altherr Sep 25 1:20am ET

    In addition to a right big toe sprain and bruised right knee from crashing into the outfield wall on Monday, Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Aaron Altherr could also have a concussion. With the regular season finale this Sunday, Altherr will almost certainly be shut down now. He had a massively disappointing season while hitting under .200 and being sent to the minors for a while to work on his swing. He won't be a popular late-round bounce-back candidate in mixed leagues in 2019.

    From RotoBaller

    Zach Eflin Sep 25 1:10am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Zach Eflin (side) will head back to Philadelphia for an exam on his "left side." Eflin has been dealing with the injury for roughly two weeks and is likely done for the remainder of the season. The right-hander allowed five hits and five earned runs in just 2 2/3 innings on the road against the Rockies on Monday before leaving his outing. He'll finish with an 11-8 record, 4.36 ERA and 8.65 K/9 in 24 starts. Eflin finished on a sour note, but his strikeout upside gives fantasy owners hope for the future.
