Brendan Rodgers Colorado Rockies

Rotoworld:

09.14: Brendan Rodgers ripped a two-run home run Tuesday as the Rockies downedthe Braves. (The Braves tied things up in the bottom of the fourth inning, but Rodgers put them back ahead what turned out to be for good with a line drive shot off Touki Toussaint which just cleared the wall in left. Amazingly, 10 of Rodgers' 12 home runs this season have come away from Coors Field.)

Salvador Perez Kansas City Royals

MVP?

Rotoworld:

09.15... Salvador Perez went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and an RBI single in Tuesday's 10-7 win over the A's.
Spin:
The Royals could have easily, easily given up on this one after falling
behind 6-0 heading into the bottom of the third inning. Instead, they
fought their way through the big deficit to ultimately take the lead on
Perez's three-run home run in the sixth inning. The All-Star backstop's
huge blast put his crew out in front with an 8-7 lead which they would
not relinquish before game's end. On the whole this season, the All-Star
slugger is slashing .275/.316/.542 with 43 home runs and 109 RBI over
the course of 143 games played. Just a fantastic overall season for the
31-year-old catcher.

Yusmeiro Petit Oakland Athletics

A rough second half. 9.39 ERA, three losses, including last night, in his last eight games. Back in May, his seventh win tied him for the league lead. Or if it didn't, it put close.

Cody Bellinger Los Angeles Dodgers

2021 line is painful to watch. The BABIP is brutal but so is the walk rate. The K rate is more like his first two seasons rather than his two great seasons. Probably related to a previous shoulder injury. The question remains what happens next year. Buying opportunity in roto or still too hyped to be a great bargain?

David Bednar Pittsburgh Pirates

September 14, 2021

Pittsburgh Pirates – David Bednar hit the IL tonight with a right oblique strain. Chris Stratton should get the bulk of the save chances for the remainder of the season, as it would be foolish for Bednar to pitch again in 2021.

Lucas Sims Cincinnati Reds

Givens has been scored on in only 2 out of 17 appearances and one of those was 3 Runs in 1/3 of an inning when they were already trailing and he hadn't pitched in a week( a loooooooong time for a reliever to go without work).

It feels like after the 2021 earnings formulae are determined, his 2021 earnings will be even higher ... 45 SBs!  GOLD!

Jesse Winker Cincinnati Reds

09.14... Jesse Winker (intercostal) has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Louisville. 
Spin: Winker has been sidelined for about a month with an intercostal strain, but he's finally ready to get back in game action. If all goes well this week, he could return as soon as this weekend against the Dodgers. That's big as the Reds attempt to secure the second Wild Card spot in the National League. Fantasy managers should be pretty happy too.

Brett Kennedy San Diego Padres

The Chihuahuas released right-handed pitcher Brett Kennedy.

Kennedy, 27, was drafted by the Padres in the 11th round in 2015, out of Fordham University. Kennedy moved up through the system and reached the big leagues in 2018, when he appeared in six games. This season, Kennedy has pitched primarily for El Paso and struggled mightily. In 13 games (10 starts) for El Paso, Kennedy pitched to a 10.35 ERA, allowing a staggering 46 earned runs in 40 innings.

Howard Lynch LynchMob

The Chihuahuas released veteran infielder Nick Tanielu.

Tanielu, 29, signed with the Padres as a minor league free agent prior to the 2021 season. The former Ranger farmhand hit .233/.299/.415 with 14 homers and 42 RBI in 88 games for the Chihuahuas.

Jose Siri Houston Astros

Peter claimed him in the September draft in the XFL on Sunday night (with the 7th pick). I thought, "Siri? Are you serious?" then looked him up. With money to spare (Peter was almost tapped out), I claimed him in the ADL on Monday.

Randal Grichuk Toronto Blue Jays
Another three-hit effort
September 14, 2021
Grichuk went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Monday's 8-1 win over the Rays.
ANALYSIS
That's now back-to-back three-hit performances by Grichuk, pushing his slash line in September to .419/.472/.613 through 13 contests. The entire Toronto offense seems to be locked in all at once as the team pushes for a playoff spot, making even lesser names like Grichuk must-starts in most fantasy formats.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Toronto Blue Jays
Launches league-leading 45th homer
September 14, 2021
Guerrero went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 8-1 win over the Rays.
ANALYSIS
He took over the major-league home run lead with an absolute missile, hooking an Adam Conley pitch just over the wall in the left-field corner on a line drive that left the yard in an incredible 3.3 seconds. Guerrero not only has 45 homers, one ahead of Shohei Ohtani, he also leads the American League in batting average at .318 -- leaving him just four RBI behind Jose Abreu for a potential Triple Crown. As an added bonus, he also leads all of MLB with 114 runs.

Bo Bichette Toronto Blue Jays
Mashes 24th homer
September 14, 2021
Bichette went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 8-1 win over the Rays.
ANALYSIS
He took Ryan Yarbrough deep in the fifth inning, giving the Jays a 5-0 lead at the time. Bichette has a six-game hit streak going during which he's slashing .423/.444/.769 with three of his 24 homers on the year -- a blistering pace to be sure, but merely above average on a Toronto squad that as a team boasts a ridiculous 1.044 OPS in September.
