Mark Leiter Chicago Cubs

Mark Leiter (P) CHI-N - Sep. 22

Leiter picked up the save Thursday in Pittsburgh, striking out four in 2.1 innings while walking two and hitting a batter in a 3-2 win.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Leiter entered the game in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and two outs and struck out Rodolfo Castro to end the inning. He walked a batter in the eighth and had runners on second and third with two outs in the ninth but escaped both situations unscathed. It was his third save of the season and second in September. In the second half, he's posted a 1.75 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB in 25.2 innings across 18 relief appearances.

Jose Alvarado Philadelphia Phillies

Jose Alvarado (P) PHI - Sep. 22

Alvarado earned a save against Atlanta on Thursday, allowing one hit and striking out two batters over 1.1 scoreless innings.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Alvarado entered in the eighth inning with two outs and the tying run on first base. He retired Matt Olson to end the frame, then stayed in for the ninth despite the fact that No. 1 closer David Robertson was warming in the bullpen. Alvarado took advantage of the opportunity by working around a two-out single to notch his second save of the campaign. Robertson and Seranthony Dominguez have struggled in September, so it's possible that Alvarado could get some more save chances moving forward.

Julio Rodriguez Seattle Mariners


09.22: Mariners manager Scott Servais told reporters after Thursday's game that Julio Rodríguez (back) will undergo an MRI exam on Friday in Kansas City. (That's
certainly not what you want to hear. Servais also called the
21-year-old's back injury "concerning". When he missed three games over
the weekend due to tightness in his lower back, Rodríguez did not have
any imaging done, so the Mariners want to get a better look at what's
going on there. Expect the club to provide an update on his status after
that imaging is done. Until then, all fantasy managers, Mariners fans
and baseball fans in general can do is hope for the best.)

Juan Soto San Diego Padres

Zero for 3 with a walk and a strikeout again last night.  Crushing disappointment is right.  I traded for him and Musgrove (with Texpope, actually) since I have a great shot at a home league title this year.  Since I acquired Soto:  in 65 ABs, his OPS is .603, with 1 HR and 7BI, hitting a cool .169.  Yikes.  

Bob Elam Bob-in-TX
Shelby Miller San Francisco Giants

Called up from AAA by the Giants. 

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Daniel Hudson Los Angeles Dodgers

Dodgers exercise option on Hudson for 2023 and add a similar option for 2024 (6.5 million option with 1 million buy out).

Josiah Gray Washington Nationals

He was okay in the first half but turned into a pumpkin in July.

Mike Landau ML-

The #1 starter for Washington based on 5x5 on the site here. Yikes.

Choes Balin continues to crush in PCL, garning 107 points (120 is max).

My Psalms 19 boys are in second with 93 points.

Balin has Tyler Anderson (4), Estrada (reserve pick), Logan Webb (reserve pick last year), and grabbed Syndergaard during the trade deadline. He also has almost no complete misses on his team.

Aaron Judge New York Yankees

FWIW, he's also first in Runs, even though Runs is the great equalizer. That said, his average will be worth more when all is said and done. Averages are awful this year compared to nearly every year, including last.  I'm not sure how total league runs and HR are this year compared to last.

Ketel Marte Arizona Diamondbacks
2019 was an aberration ... the other four years are 16, 13, 18, and (projected) 15.  But he constantly goes for 24 to 30 ... 
Kent Ostby Seadogs
Juan Soto San Diego Padres

As my team sinks farther and farther out of contention, I've stopped looking for or thinking about Soto's line. It's a shock when he contributes anything at all. Just an absolute crushing disappointment.

T.J. Rohr TJRohr
Aaron Judge New York Yankees

Triple Crown leader, leads AL in HR by 23, 16 SB, and still "only" worth $52/$47? Seems low.

T.J. Rohr TJRohr
Jarred Kelenic Seattle Mariners

Kelenic is getting another shot with the M's this year. Taylor Trammell sent to Tacoma in the corresponding move. 

Tim McLeod tlmcleod
Joey Meneses Washington Nationals

HR #10 today.

Even with BABIP regression could be a solid 1B option for 2023.   

Phil Ponebshek Texpope
Nelson Cruz Washington Nationals


Remains out of lineup
September 21, 2022
Cruz (eye) isn't starting Wednesday against Atlanta.
Cruz is out of the lineup for a seventh consecutive matchup due to left eye inflammation, but the Nationals haven't yet indicated that they plan to put him on the injured list. Luke Voit will serve as the designated hitter and bat cleanup once again.
