No. 10-Jimmy Rollins continued his nice second half power output by hitting his fourth home run in the last seven games on Monday against the Mets. The twenty one home runs on the season equals a season high since 2009 for Rollins.
No. 9-R.A. Dickey was denied his second attempt at win number nineteen on the season in the game with the Phils. Dickey was impressive going seven innings, striking out eight while only allowing five hits and two earned runs. He will again attempt to claim the elusive nineteenth win later in the week against Miami.
No. 8-Dewayne Wise filled in capably last month when the White Sox were suffering through a string of injuries. Down the stretch he is working his way back in the mix. Wise went 3-for-5 with two runs batted in on Monday and will likely continue to find the field in favor of Alejandro De Aza as long as he continues to swing the bat well.
No. 7-Delmon Young was a bright spot for the Tigers on Monday despite their loss to their division rival White Sox. Young went 2-for-3 and drove in three of the Tigers four runs.
No. 6-Justin Ruggiano has shown no signs of slowing down after a red hot summer. He continues to hit well over .300 with above average power and speed. He will make a good late round pick next year to anchor your team.
No. 5-Tim Hudson was pretty ordinary on Monday but still held on to earn the win behind the strength of the Braves deep bullpen. Hudson allowed ten hits and four earned runs in five innings. Hudson has his share of good outings but he is no longer a sure start each time out and in shallow leagues he may not even warrant a roster spot.
No. 4-Cliff Lee was impressive for the Phillies earning the win with eight strong innings. Lee has now won his last four decisions and still boasts an impressive earned run average and WHIP. Don't be fooled by the 6-7 record, Lee is a nice "buy low" candidate for next season.
No. 3-Max Scherzer takes the mound seeking his seventh straight win against the surprising Athletics today. Despite the early season inconsistencies, Scherzer has sixteen wins and leads the majors with 220 strikeouts.
No. 2-After only winning five starts for the Cubs, Ryan Dempster has railed off five consecutive wins in with the Rangers. He will look for his seventh win since joining the Rangers today as he takes the mound against the Angels.
No. 1-With only seven games on the tab for Monday, it stands as a good reminder for daily league players to be adding players as their roster allows to fill out their lineup and get a few more crucial at bats down the last couple of weeks to close the season out.
