No. 10-After his three hit performance on Tuesday, Mark Reynolds now has three multi-hit games in his last five games. As you might have expected one of Reynolds hits was a home run. Equally true to stereotypes, Reynolds also struck out in the only at bat that the Blue Jays got him out.
No. 9-Adam Laroche continues to have an impressive season. Tuesday Laroche pounded two more home runs driving his season total to twenty seven.
No. 8-Manny Machado is a top prospect and figures to contribute to fantasy lineups for years to come. Machado had a couple more hits Tuesday, but he has cooled off since his initial flurry right after his call up. Machado should be retained in dynasty leagues, but until the Orioles find a spot for him further up the lineup his overall production will be suspect.
No. 7-The Reds activated Joey Votto from the disabled list on Tuesday, but he was not in the starting lineup. Votto expects to be eased back in to the lineup with periodic days off as the Reds prepare for the playoffs. Todd Frazier figures to be the beneficiary of those at bats and can still be a valuable contributor in daily lineups.
No. 6-The White Sox have considered giving Phil Humber a couple of starts this month with Gavin Floyd injured. If Tuesday is any indication you will want to steer clear of Humber. Humber who threw a perfect game early in the season, was torched for seven earned runs in only 1/3 of an inning. If the White Sox decide to run him back to the mound, don't get caught up in the early season perfection.
No. 5-Chris Perez resumed his closing duties for the Indians after being away from the team for a few days to be with his family as his daughter was born. Perez has a firm grasp on the closer job and figures to only be challenged by the Indians ability to win games to allow him to close them out.
No. 4-If you find yourself late in the season, streaming starters you should take a look at Brett Anderson. Anderson missed the biggest chunk of the season on the disabled list but has come back strong, giving the A's a dependable starter down the stretch. In three starts, Anderson has tallied three wins, only allowing two earned runs in twenty innings while striking out fifteen batters. Anderson faces off with the light hitting Mariners this weekend and figures to build on his recent success.
No. 3-After a few bumpy outings, R.A. Dickey has recovered his early season form and has won his last two outings. Dickey will look to stay on track today as he takes the mound against the Cardinals and will be looking for win number eighteen.
No. 2-Desmond Jennings continued his impressive second half with his twelfth home run of the season last night. Jennings drove in a run, scored twice and also stole a base. If Jennings can continue the strong second half he will again enter next season as a trendy break out candidate.
No. 1-Football starts tonight. Forgive me, but I can not help myself!
