Chase Anderson Takes Loss Tuesday Versus Cincinnati: Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Chase Anderson suffered a subpar outing at an inopportune time Tuesday versus the Reds. He would last 3 2/3 innings allowing three runs which left him with the loss when the Brewers only scored one run. Despite shutting down the Cubs in a short outing last time, he had allowed several hard-hit balls which perhaps foreshadowed what happened Tuesday. Anderson is a volatile fantasy option but his 3.93 ERA shows he has had some strong outings. His unpredictability also extends towards the difficulty in projecting his future fantasy value. - as of Wed, 19 Sep 2018 05:01:39 -0400 RotoBaller Staff https://www.rotoballer.com?p=549096&post_type=newsdesk&preview_id=549096 MLB ChaseAndersonMILSP1987-11-30502624 This article first appeared on RotoBaller.com.

Joey Wendle Records Four Hits Tuesday Versus Texas: Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Joey Wendle quietly contributed to the team effort Tuesday versus the Rangers. While Snell's milestone and, to a lesser degree, Adames HR grabbed the most attention coming out of the 4-0 victory, Wendle made his impact on the game. Wendle would produce four hits which tied the most in his major league career. He would also drive in a run as well as scoring one. Wendle has a strong batting average at .298 while also stealing 13 bases and hitting seven HR. He is not a league-winner and is not worth much in shallow or medium-depth leagues but there are deep formats where he matters. - as of Wed, 19 Sep 2018 04:39:24 -0400 RotoBaller Staff https://www.rotoballer.com?p=549095&post_type=newsdesk&preview_id=549095 MLB JoeyWendleTB2B1990-04-26621563 This article first appeared on RotoBaller.com.

Blake Snell Wins His 20th Tuesday: Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Blake Snell hit a major milestone Tuesday versus Texas. He would throw five scoreless innings to start off the 4-0 victory. The win he earned was his 20th of the season, which leads the majors. It is a milestone for two reasons. First, 20 wins itself is considered a seasonal milestone that has become much rarer than 30-HR or .300 batting average. Second, Snell became only the second Ray to reach 20 wins in a season. Snell is now 20-5 with a 1.97 ERA this season. Snell has become an elite fantasy pitcher in 2018. - as of Wed, 19 Sep 2018 04:16:03 -0400 RotoBaller Staff https://www.rotoballer.com?p=549094&post_type=newsdesk&preview_id=549094 MLB BlakeSnellTBSP1992-12-04605483 This article first appeared on RotoBaller.com.

Willy Adames With Game-Winner Tuesday Versus Texas: Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Willy Adames struck the key blow versus the Rangers Tuesday. He would drive a 420-foot two-run shot that made the score 2-0. The Rays would throw a combined shutout so the homer was the eventual game-winner. The HR was his tenth of the season, which is even more impressive when taking into consideration he spent part of the season in the minor leagues. Adames was a highly touted prospect who offers a mixture of power and speed to go along with his defense. He just turned 23 years old and so has room to develop physically into an even better player. - as of Wed, 19 Sep 2018 04:02:22 -0400 RotoBaller Staff https://www.rotoballer.com?p=549093&post_type=newsdesk&preview_id=549093 MLB prospects-rookies WillyAdamesTBSS1995-09-02642715 This article first appeared on RotoBaller.com.

Michael Lorenzen Looks Strong In First Start Since 2015: Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher Michael Lorenzen was dominant in his first start of the season (and first start since the 2015 season) in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Brewers. Lorenzen pitched four innings, allowing one unearned run on a hit and a walk with three strikeouts. Lorenzen was on a 50-60 pitch count limit and certainly made the most of it. He has done a bit of everything this season and now has a 3.03 ERA with 52 strikeouts and 30 walks in 71 1/3 innings. The Reds have an open starter's slot for Sunday's game against the Marlins and it would be nice to see what Lorenzen could do with another start opportunity. - as of Wed, 19 Sep 2018 00:55:42 -0400 RotoBaller Staff https://www.rotoballer.com?p=549075&post_type=newsdesk&preview_id=549075 MLB MichaelLorenzenCINRP1992-01-04547179 This article first appeared on RotoBaller.com.

Dylan Bundy's Defense Fails Him Tuesday: Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Dylan Bundy fell to 8-15 in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays despite a solid start. Bundy allowed five runs but only two earned on seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. His outing would have looked a lot different if not for a two-run error in the seventh inning which occurred with two outs. Despite the encouraging start, Bundy still has a 5.37 ERA on the season, which can be partly attributed to his massive 2.10 HR/9 rate. Tuesday's start was Bundy's first in his last 13 in which he did not allow at least one HR. Bundy will need to figure out how to limit the long ball if he is to be fantasy relevant next season. - as of Wed, 19 Sep 2018 00:46:26 -0400 RotoBaller Staff https://www.rotoballer.com?p=549074&post_type=newsdesk&preview_id=549074 MLB DylanBundyBALSP1992-11-15605164 This article first appeared on RotoBaller.com.

Cedric Mullins Hits Leadoff Home Run Tuesday: Baltimore Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays. Mullins got things started by tagging an Aaron Sanchez fastball into the right-center field seats for his fourth HR of the season. The 23-year-old has shown promise in his first stint in the big leagues, posting a .268/.348/.439 slash line with nine RBI and a steal in 140 plate appearances.

Gabriel Moya To Serve As Opener Wednesday: Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Gabriel Moya will serve as the opener again on Wednesday against the Tigers, with Stephen Gonsalves being the primary pitcher to follow him.

Aaron Nola Falls One Out Short Of Win: With 5 2/3 innings under his belt Tuesday night, Philadelphia Phillies ace Aaron Nola was removed from the game, with manager Gabe Kapler calling for Pat Neshek. Neshek would retire the final batter of the inning, earning a victory as a result. It was a disappointing finish for Nola, who allowed two runs on six hits and two walks, striking out nine along the way. The performance, while not, a bad one, continues a worrying trend for the young ace as the season winds down. In three starts this month, Nola has a 5.60 ERA, easily his worst of any month this year. - as of Tue, 18 Sep 2018 23:59:38 -0400 RotoBaller Staff https://www.rotoballer.com?p=549058&post_type=newsdesk&preview_id=549058 MLB AaronNolaPHISP1993-06-04605400 This article first appeared on RotoBaller.com.

Jorge Alfaro's Blast Seals Victory: Trailing in the sixth inning against the New York Mets Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia Phillies catcher Jorge Alfaro stepped to the plate after his club tied things up. The 25-year-old, who lost the starting catcher job earlier this season, drilled a three-run home run to deep left-center field, giving his team a lead they would preserve the rest of the way. It was Alfaro's first home run of the month as he continues a strong offensive September, now hitting .364 in nine games this month.

Neil Walker's Blast Propels Yankees To Victory: The New York Yankees only had three hits against the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night in the Bronx. They still managed to prevail, however, as Neil Walker provided the biggest hit of the game. Starting at first base over Luke Voit and Greg Bird, the 33-year-old stepped up to the plate in the seventh with two runners on and crushed a pitch to right field for a three-run blast. The Yankees were being shut out at that point, immediately taking a two-run lead with the shot. It was Walker's 10th home run of the season, as the Yankees tied a league record of players on a roster with double-digit home runs in one season. - as of Tue, 18 Sep 2018 23:43:07 -0400 RotoBaller Staff https://www.rotoballer.com?p=549055&post_type=newsdesk&preview_id=549055 MLB NeilWalkerNYY2B1985-09-10435522 This article first appeared on RotoBaller.com.

Aaron Judge Goes Hitless In Return To Lineup: At long last, New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge made his return to the starting lineup just in time for the club to host the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night in the Bronx. The 26-year-old, who was out since late July with a wrist injury, batted second and started in right field. The All-Star would go hitless in four plate appearances, hitting the ball hard a couple of times but failing to reach base.

J.A. Happ Stymies Red Sox In No-Decision: New York Yankees starter J.A. Happ was originally scheduled to make his second start in a Yankees uniform against the archrival Boston Red Sox but would be placed on the DL beforehand.

Happ also struck out six, but would eventually earn a no-decision, as he exited with his club trailing by a run. While Happ didn't earn a win, he had himself another sensational outing, continuing to remain a serious option to start the A.L.
