No. 10- Chris Sale surrendered ten hits to the Indians on Monday. Despite the sub par outing, a ninth inning Adam Dunn allowed Sale to escape with a no decision. The White Sox will need Sale to pitch well if they hope to push in to the playoffs and make a post season run.
No. 9- Nine more days are all that are left in the regular season. Fantasy baseball owners are the most invested, dedicated out there. I hope you are closing this final few games out with a celebration of your league championship.
No. 8-Justin Verlander struck out eight batters en route to his sixteenth victory on the season. Verlander was able to scatter nine hits, allowing only two earned runs in the win.
No. 7-Jordan Zimmerman pitched in to the seventh inning while punching out seven Brewers' batters in earning his twelfth win of the season. Zimmerman has pitched better than his record reflects with an earned run average below three and a WHIP of 1.17.
No. 6-Marco Estrada had been very effective over the last month, before being roughed up on Monday. The six earned runs he allowed on Monday were more than he had allowed in his previous six starts combined.
No. 5-Five more runs batted in for Ike Davis on Monday. Davis has been on and off of rosters this season in what was supposed to be his breakout campaign, but he failed to hit consistently. Until he can put it together and hit for average Davis will be stuck playing the role of a Carlos Pena type with upside.
No. 4-The Nationals beat up on the Brewers 12-2 on Monday, lead by Ryan Zimmerman and his four runs batted in. Zimmerman has always been a capable hitter if he can stay healthy and his numbers this season are indicative of his true potential.
No. 3-Three blown saves with forty eight saves is the line for the Orioles' Jim Johnson in his first full season as the closer. Johnson was a cheap closer on draft day as most owners expected diminished value due to the lack of opportunities expected for the Orioles to win games.
No. 2-Two teams have clinched their division title and others are closing in on securing a playoff berth. Pay close attention to these team's lineups and see if they decide to rest any key starters and be prepared to adjust your lineup accordingly.
No. 1-Billy Butler eclipsed the 100 R.B.I. mark for the first time in his career over the weekend. Butler will see his value increase going in to next season.
