Cincinnati Reds OF Nick Senzel (thumb) missed his second straight game Sunday, Aug. 25 against the Pittsburgh Pirates due to a sore right thumb. It isn't the sole reason he has been sidelined, but it is a factor, according to manager David Bell.
Boston Red Sox OF Andrew Benintendi (side) did not play Sunday, Aug. 25 against the San Diego Padres due to a left side injury. He is considered day to day.
Baltimore Orioles 3B/DH Renato Nunez (hamstring) left the game Sunday, Aug. 25 against the Tampa Bay Rays due to tightness in his hamstring behind the knee. Manager Brandon Hyde said Nunez should be OK.
Baltimore Orioles 2B Hanser Alberto (head, neck) left the game Sunday, Aug. 25 against the Tampa Bay Rays due to a head contusion and cervical neck strain. He will be re-evaluated Monday, Aug. 26.
Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier (ribs) left the game Sunday, Aug. 25 against the Baltimore Orioles due to a left rib contusion.
Chicago White Sox RHP Reynaldo Lopez (illness) left his start Sunday, Aug. 25 against the Texas Rangers after experiencing dehydration and flu-like symptoms.
Chicago White Sox OF Leury Garcia (shin) left the game Sunday, Aug. 26 against the Texas Rangers due to a left shin contusion. X-rays were negative and he is considered day to day.
Los Angeles Dodgers RP Casey Sadler (back) did not pitch Sunday, Aug. 25 against the New York Yankees, and manager Dave Roberts said the pitcher has a 'back thing.'
Oakland Athletics C Chris Herrmann (groin) left the game Sunday, Aug. 25 against the San Francisco Giants due to a groin contusion.
Oakland Athletics OF Stephen Piscotty (ankle) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Aug. 25 due to a sprained right ankle.
San Francisco Giants OF Mike Yastrzemski (hand) suffered a hand contusion Sunday, Aug. 25 against the Oakland Athletics. He was not set for X-rays.
New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius (shoulder) injured his shoulder in the first inning Sunday, Aug. 25 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He had X-rays after the game and they came back negative. Manager Aaron Boone said Gregorius is considered day to day.
Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Shane Bieber pitched well on Sunday, going seven innings while allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks. He struck out eight and allowed one home run. "Not Justin" threw 111 pitches and was forced to settle for a no decision despite the solid effort. He'll take a 3.23 ERA and a .216 opponent's batting average to the mound for his next start.
Cleveland Indians outfielder/designated hitter Franmil Reyes hit two home runs on Sunday, going 2-for-5 with four RBI and two runs scored. Reyes has been having a hard time since getting traded to Cleveland, as even the strong Sunday left him with a .182/.217/.416 line.
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter had an excellent game on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, and two singles. He drove in two runs and scored three. The home run was the 12th of the season for Carpenter, who moved his line up to .218/.328/.375. It's been a rough year for "Carp" but he showed what he's capable of in this one. If he has another good game or two, he may be worth looking into in deeper formats.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler drove in three runs on Sunday, going 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a run scored. Fowler's 20th double of the season was a big one, helping lead the Cardinals to a 11-4 win over the Rockies. Fowler has been leading off for the Cardinals lately, and he's hitting .247/.349/.426.
Texas Rangers starting pitcher Brock Burke allowed one run in six innings Sunday in a loss to the White Sox. Burke allowed two hits and three walks while striking out five on the afternoon. Burke has now allowed only one run through his first 12 MLB innings. The left-hander primarily pitched in Double-A this season with a 3.18 ERA and a 2.76 FIP. He had a 26.6 percent strikeout rate across Double-A and Triple-A and is one of the top prospects in the Rangers system. He's worth a speculative add in fantasy to see how long he keeps this up, especially with a nice matchup against Seattle lined up for Friday.
Cincinnati Reds right-hander Trevor Bauer was hit hard in a 9-8 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. Bauer allowed eight runs (seven earned) over three innings while striking out two. It was an uneven effort across the board as the veteran hurler gave up two runs in the first inning and then three runs in each the second and third innings. Bauer has struggled since coming over to Cincinnati, having posted a 7.32 ERA over five starts. Overall, in 29 starts between the Reds and the Cleveland Indians, Bauer has a 10-11 record, 4.34 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 217 strikeouts. He will look to bounce back against the St. Louis Cardinals in his next start.
Minnesota Twins left-hander Martin Perez pitched well in a 7-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. Perez allowed just two runs over six innings of work while striking out five. The veteran southpaw picked up the win, improving his record to 9-6 to go along with a 4.53 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 116 strikeouts over 139 innings of work. Perez hit a rough patch last month but he has straightened out, having allowed just four earned runs over his past three starts. The Minnesota hurler is worth an add in deeper leagues based on his recent performance. He will face the Tigers again in his next start, this time in Detroit.
Minnesota Twins first baseman C.J. Cron went 1-for-2 with two walks and a three-run homer in a 7-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. Cron launched a three-run shot off Detroit left-hander Matthew Boyd in the fourth inning, giving him 21 homers on the season. The big slugger got off to a fast start this season but that was just his third home run in the month of August. Overall, Cron is hitting .257 with the 21 homers, 44 runs, and 68 RBI. His recent slow spell has rendered him as more of an option in American League-only formats.
