    Jonathan Loaisiga Aug 21 12:10pm ET

    While the New York Yankees suffered a 6-2 loss to kick off their West Coast road trip, their second pitcher on the night gave them cause for hope. Pitcher Jonathan Loaisiga, who just returned from an extended injury absence, bounced back in a very positive way. After getting battered last Thursday in his return, the 24-year-old fired 2 2/3 shutout innings, surrendering just one hit and two walks while striking out two. His 40-pitch was a step in the right direction as the Yankees begin to essentially hold tryouts for postseason reliever spots. Loaisiga could additionally serve as a starter at some point this season.

    Marwin Gonzalez Aug 21 12:10pm ET

    Minnesota Twins utility man Marwin Gonzalez (rest) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's series finale against the White Sox. The 30-year-old will get a routine day of rest after making 15 consecutive starts, and should be right back in the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Tigers. Gonzalez has put together a monster stretch with a .385 batting average, 12 RBI, and 20 hits over the past two weeks. Overall on the season Gonzalez has produced 14 home runs, 47 RBI, and a .265 batting average, making him worth owning in mixed leagues with the multi positional eligibility. Jake Cave will fill in for Gonzalez in right field and bat ninth against White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito.

    Domingo German Aug 21 12:00pm ET

    New York Yankees starter Domingo German has jumped to the top of the MLB wins category by receiving a very healthy amount of run support from his offense. On Tuesday night in Oakland, however, that wasn't the case as he took just his third loss of the season and first in nearly three months. The 27-year-old didn't pitch well, going just 5 1/3 innings and allowing five earned runs on eight hits and two walks. An early lead was blown immediately, as he served up two home runs in the first inning. While five runs hasn't been decisive for him this season, the Yankees offense mustered just two runs, resulting in defeat. German's next start is scheduled for Sunday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

    Yonny Chirinos Aug 21 12:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays starter Yonny Chirinos (finger) was cleared to resume baseball activities on Wednesday. The 25-year-old has been shut down since early August with a right middle finger inflammation, after a productive season in which he posted a 9-5 record to go along with a 3.62 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 110 strikeouts through 126 2/3 innings. A timetable for Chirinos' return is unclear at the moment but he is worth stashing in deep formats with IL spots.

    Clayton Kershaw Aug 21 11:50am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw allowed three runs on six hits across six innings of work during Tuesday's 16-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. He struck out six batters while walking three. Solo home runs victimized the veteran, as Bo Bichette smacked two off of him while Derek Fisher hit one. Nevertheless, Kershaw now has a 13-2 record on the season to go along with a 2.71 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 147/31 K/BB rate. 19 of his 22 starts this season have been quality starts. Kershaw is a bonafide ace, and he'll have to prove it in his next projected start against the daunting New York Yankees.

    Joey Votto Aug 21 11:50am ET

    Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto (back) could return to the Reds lineup as soon as this weekend, when first eligible. The 35-year-old was placed on the injured list with a lower back strain and has not appeared in a game since August 14. Votto has recorded totals of 12 home runs, 39 RBI, 60 runs scored, a .262 batting average and a career-low .352 OBP in 2019. Votto is worth owning in deep mixed leagues but is not the fantasy asset he once was.

    Corey Seager Aug 21 11:40am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager was 3-for-4 with two RBI during Tuesday's 16-3 thrashing of the Toronto Blue Jays. The 25-year-old is batting .321 with three home runs and eight RBI over his past seven games. Seager has had a productive campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2018. He is slashing .269/.344/.462 with 12 HRs, 55 RBI, and 62 runs scored. The fact that Seager has still provided reliable stats after a horrific injury is a remarkable achievement. Look for him to finish the season strong as the Dodgers continue to cruise.

    Eric Sogard Aug 21 11:40am ET

    Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Eric Sogard (rest) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's series finale against the Mariners. Sogard will take a seat with left-hander Wade LeBlanc starting for the opposition, as Mike Brosseau will take over at second base and bat eighth in the lineup. The 33-year-old has picked up right where he left off after being traded from the Blue Jays, with totals of three home runs, eight RBI, and a .333 batting average through 17 games with the Rays. Sogard is worth owning in deep mixed leagues and will continue to provide a high batting average moving forward.

    Chris Taylor Aug 21 11:40am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Chris Taylor was 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBI, three runs scored, and a walk in Tuesday's 16-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. It was Taylor's first game since July 14 as he missed five weeks with a fractured left forearm. The 28-year-old is slashing .268/.342/.468 with nine HRs, 45 RBI, seven stolen bases, and 36 runs scored this season. He will likely see regular at-bats for the remainder of the campaign, making him a valid option in mixed leagues with 12 or more teams.

    Bo Bichette Aug 21 11:40am ET

    Even in a 16-3 loss to the Dodgers, there were at least signs of Toronto's bright future, as Bo Bichette continued his outstanding rookie campaign by hitting two home runs off of Clayton Kershaw. Bichette led the game off with a 419-foot blast before adding a 411-foot bomb in the sixth inning and now has seven home runs, 11 RBI, and 15 runs scored on the year, with 12 doubles and a .341 AVG. Already a boon for any owners who snatched him up in redraft leagues, Bichette cements himself as one of the best assets in dynasty with every game he plays.

    Cody Bellinger Aug 21 11:30am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger was 2-for-3 with three RBI, three runs scored, and a walk during Tuesday's 16-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. The 24-year-old is batting .357 with four HRs and 11 RBI over his past seven games. Bellinger is likely in the lead for the National League MVP race, as he is slashing .320/.418/.673 with 42 HRs, 100 RBI, 10 stolen bases, and 100 runs scored this season. He is a terror for opposing pitchers. Lock him into your fantasy lineups and throw away the key.

    Max Muncy Aug 21 11:20am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Max Muncy was 1-for-1 with a solo home run, three runs scored, and three walks during Tuesday's 16-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. He reached base safely in all four of his plate appearances. The 28-year-old has shown that his 2018 breakout season was no fluke. He is slashing .260/.374/.536 with 32 HRs, 86 RBI, and 85 runs scored this season. Muncy is a fearsome slugger worthy of ownership in all fantasy formats.

    A.J. Pollock Aug 21 11:20am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder A.J. Pollock was 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs scored, and two walks during Tuesday's 16-3 dismantling of the Toronto Blue Jays. The 31-year-old is batting .327 over his past 15 games. Pollock is slashing .270/.335/.469 on the season with nine HRs, 31 RBI, and 36 runs scored, but injuries have limited him to just 55 games. Pollock has a seemingly everyday role with the team for the remainder of the season. He is a solid depth outfielder in leagues with 10 or more teams.

    Homer Bailey Aug 21 11:10am ET

    Oakland Athletics starter Homer Bailey allowed one run on seven hits across 5 2/3 innings of work during Tuesday's 6-2 win over the New York Yankees. He struck out eight batters without issuing a walk. Bailey has allowed one run across his past two starts, tallying 15 strikeouts in the process. The 33-year-old now has an 11-8 record on the season to go along with a 5.06 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 116/47 K/BB rate. He is expected to face the Kansas City Royals in his next projected start, which is a preferable matchup for the right-hander.

    Matt Olson Aug 21 11:10am ET

    Oakland Athletics first baseman Matt Olson was 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk during Tuesday's 6-2 win over the New York Yankees. The 25-year-old has been on fire, batting .357 with three HRs and 10 RBI over his past seven games. Olson is slashing .265/.350/.542 on the season with 26 HRs, 62 RBI, and 48 runs scored. He is not a world-beater, but he provides reliable production and plenty of power. Olson is worthy of ownership in all formats with 10 or more teams.

    Dallas Keuchel Aug 21 11:00am ET

    Atlanta Braves starter Dallas Keuchel allowed one run on six hits across six innings of work during Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Miami Marlins. He struck out seven batters while walking two. This performance comes after Keuchel allowed eight runs to the Marlins back on August 8. The veteran left-hander now owns a 4-5 record on the season to go along with a 4.14 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 60/24 K/BB rate. Out of his 12 starts with the Braves this season, seven have been quality starts. He remains a mid-tier fantasy pitcher heading into a matchup at Citi Field against the New York Mets.

    Freddie Freeman Aug 21 11:00am ET

    Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was 3-for-4 with two home runs, four RBI, and three runs scored during Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Miami Marlins. The 29-year-old is slashing .339/.443/.587 over his past 30 games. On the season, Freeman is batting .307 with 33 HRs, 102 RBI, five stolen bases, and 99 runs scored. While teammate Ronald Acuna commands a lot of attention, Freeman is also deserving of National League MVP consideration. He is one of the best bats in baseball and can be rolled out each night with confidence.

    Gavin Lux Aug 21 10:20am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop prospect Gavin Lux continues to shine for Triple-A Oklahoma City. Lux went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI on Tuesday. Lux started the season in Double-A, but earned a promotion to Triple-A and has shined. Lux is now hitting .415 with 12 home runs and 38 RBI in 41 games for Oklahoma City. Lux, 21, wasnt expected to the big leagues this year, but with rosters about to expand in September, Lux may have forced the issue and there is a chance he could be in Dodger blue in 2019. Lux should already be owned in dynasty leagues and should be scooped up if the Dodgers promote him for the stretch run.

    Jackie Bradley Jr. Aug 21 9:30am ET

    Boston Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Philadelphia. Bradley Jr. collected his 15th long ball on the season in the third inning but Boston didn't score again after that. The 29-year-old is hitting just .224 with 49 RBI, making him viable solely in AL-only formats. His spotty home run power doesn't provide much mixed league value down the stretch.

    From RotoBaller

    Matt Barnes Aug 21 9:30am ET

    Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Matt Barnes struck out two and walked one in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Philadelphia. Barnes hasn't allowed a run over his last three appearances and has a 5/2 K/BB over those two complete innings. However, the righty hasn't recorded a save since June 6, so his fantasy relevance is long gone. Brandon Workman remains the Boston reliever to own for fantasy.
