Tom Murphy Seattle Mariners

It looks like he was the only two-home-run hitter yesterday. But he keeps the streak going (I think; if there's been a day in the last month or a little more when no one hit two or more homers, I missed it).

Seth Beer Houston Astros

Seth Beer, LF, Diamondbacks -- Beer had two hits in three at-bats for Double-A Jackson. He drew a walk and collected two doubles while driving in two runs and coming around to score once as well. Since joining the Diamondbacks, Beer has just six extra-base hits, all doubles, in 53 at-bats.

Trevor Rosenthal Detroit Tigers
Rafael Montero Texas Rangers

Texas Rangers – Rafael Montero pitched the 10th and 11th innings on Monday, earning the win and lowering his ERA to 1.20 over 15 innings with the Rangers. Montero, who earned his second hold earlier this week, has joined Emmanuel Clase as late-inning options in the lead-up to Shawn Kelley and Jose Leclerc.

Updated hierarchy: Leclerc | Kelley | Montero.

Age, it seems to me.

I've started to slide in Doubt Mixed 2 since Tatis went down. Somehow I was doing fine without Hicks.

Pete Alonso New York Mets

That's correct. In the new formulas, which I am not sophisticated  enough to adjust while the season is underway, he will earn -- just guessing -- two or three dollars less.

Tyler Beede San Francisco Giants

In his last 5 starts (including the one referenced below) his control has still been good (23 IP, 7 BB to 26 K) ...  but a 51%!!! hard hit ball rate, leading to a .432 BABIP *and* a 30% HR/FB rate.

As one Giants blogger writes:  "I’m inclined to think the league has a book on young Tyler. He may even be tipping his pitches. Whatever the case, the A’s, and other teams, have been hitting Beede’s fastball like it was a bp pitch. It appears the young righty has lost faith and command in his change-up and slider and has relied too heavily on the number one, which though it may be traveling at 95 MPH, appears to be a little too straight to avoid violent collisions with opponent wooden baseball bats."

Is it age or overthinking it or both?

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Nick Ahmed Arizona Diamondbacks

Him and Christian Walker have carried me to second place in NL Doubt 1, but with injuries to Tatis, Cutch, Hicks, and now Doolittle, among others, I'm going to be heading down soon.

Pete Alonso New York Mets

Question about the earnings $$ we see here (e.g., $28 in 4x4 for Pete as of this writing).  Is that based on last season's denominators?  If so, I would guess then that there will be a significant correction in actual 2019 earnings to reflect the inflated HR rate.

Nick Anderson Miami Marlins

Egads, two hits off Nick last night.

But he still hasn't been scored on in eight appearances for the Rays. More amazing, perhaps, he hasn't issued a walk.

Tom Murphy Seattle Mariners

Ups his slugging average to .609 -- six. oh. nine -- with two homers and a single.

Asdrubal Cabrera Washington Nationals

Plates five for his new team in the nation's capital.

Or is that capitol? I still haven't figured that out.

Pete Alonso New York Mets

Back to being a monster. Broke Bellinger's NL rookie record for homers last night, will break the ML record (52, Judge, also in 2017) before it's over.

But nobody's going to hit 60, which seems kind of odd, considering how easily comparative weaklings are reaching the seats.

Alex Patton Alex
Nick Ahmed Arizona Diamondbacks

Player of the week after touching them all four times, driving in four, slugging 1.038.

Interesting to compare this year's and last year's slash stats, BB/SO percentages, and BABIP. Same player, different baseball.

Billy Hamilton Atlanta Braves

Claimed on waivers by the Braves.

One thing that the no-waiver trades change has done is make people take a chance on DFA-ed players whose salary might have been prohibitive in the past. Now those people may be the best chance to grab a veteran.

I also think we are seeing slightly more prospect call-ups than usual to fill injury spots.

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Freddy Galvis Cincinnati Reds

A very cheap 2020 option for the Reds if they want to pick it up ... and playing full time for Cinci he'll easily crack 20 HR.

Corban Joseph Oakland Athletics

I was so save-obsessed in the FAAB bidding this morning in the ADL, that I completely missed this guy. Went to the Tooners for $1. For a third of my remaining FAAB I could have picked him up. Even at Las Vegas, even this year, a .371/.421/.585 slash line gets the attention.

Tooners have a commanding lead -- overall and in the power cats -- it probably doesn't mean anything. But if it does...

I bid two-thirds of my remaining budget for Matt Magill. Didn't get him.
