No. 10-A night after watching Gio Gonzalez earn his nineteenth win and pass him for the Major League lead, R.A. Dickey took the mound hoping to equal the feat. Dickey was effective, lasting seven innings while only allowing three earned runs. The effort was not enough to earn the win as the Nationals got the best of their N.L. East foe.
No. 9-If you find yourself fighting in the standings and a few saves could be the difference in your finish, Jonathan Broxton could make a nice, sneaky addition to your team. He closed Tuesday's game with the save and with the Reds resting Aroldis Chapman for a few days, the former Royals' closer will likely see a few opportunities to tally some saves down the stretch.
No. 8-The Orioles aren't showing any signs of going away in their division battle with the Yankees. J.J. Hardy smacked two home runs and drove in five runs leading the O's to a 9-2 victory on the night.
No. 7-If you weren't sure what to make of the rocky season from Cliff Lee, then your head must be spinning trying to figure out what is going on with his Philly teammate Roy Halladay. Halladay was roughed up by the Marlins on Tuesday, but he got some good run support and the Phils held on for the win. Halladay is still not himself. He now has an earned run average approaching four and is battling to keep his record above .500.
No. 6-Jacoby Ellsbury came up big for the Red Sox on Tuesday, going 4-for-5 including the game winning hit over the hated Yankees. The season's stats don't look great, but Ellsbury has been doing better of late and has the tools to help your team over the last month.
No. 5-You would have been well served to replace Madison Bumgarner on the mound for Madison Bumgarner at the plate on Tuesday night. On a night where he pitched only into the fifth inning, surrendering five earned runs and eleven hits, Bumgarner was much more effective at the plate, going 2-for-2 with a three run home run.
No. 4-Asdrubal Cabrera is banged up and the Indians have rested the talented shortstop so far this week. If you play in a daily league you will want to closely monitor the situration as some reports suggest that Cabrera will be rested until as long as Friday.
No. 3-Dee Gordon will finally be activated from the Disabled List for the Dodgers soon, but make no mistake he will see a greatly diminished role. The Dodgers retooled their team during Gordon's extended stint on the DL and the addition of Hanley Ramirez means that Gordon will likely be relegated to pinch running and a utility role.
No. 2-A year after becoming a second half legend, Mike Napoli appears to be stuck in a platoon situation this season. Napoli hasnt been healthy all season and the Rangers are looking to preserve his health by allowing him some additional rest while sharing time with Geovany Soto.
No. 1-Jimmy Rollins rewarded his owners by registering numbers in all five categories on Tuesday. Rollins drove in three runs with two hits, including a home run. He also scored three times and stole a base in helping the Phillies defeat the Nats.
