Fantasy Draft Baseball Notables

  • You can expect Phillies first baseman Tommy Joseph to be back in the lineup. Ryan Howard started Tuesday and Wednesday, but Howard went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts Wednesday against the Cubs. Joseph has supplanted Howard as the team’s primary first baseman, hitting .311 (19-for-61) with two doubles, five home runs and eight RBIs in 19 games.
  • Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday. He had missed the past 53 games with a right forearm fracture.
  • Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre was not in the lineup for Thursday’s game against the Astros, and he was set to be re-evaluated after leaving Wednesday’s game with a tight left hamstring.
  • San Francisco catcher Buster Posey, who hasn’t played since Saturday in St. Louis due to nerve irritation in his right thumb, could be back behind the plate just in time for game 1 of the Dodgers/Giants 3 game series .

Major League Fantasy Baseball Draft News October 9th 2015

Texas Ranges versus Toronto Blue Jays Game 2 MLB ALDS Real Money Fantasy Preview

Game 2 will begin from Toronto at 12:30PM Eastern Time on FOX Sports 1.

Texas Rangers 2B:

Rougned Odor

The bottom of the lineup did the damage for Texas in Game 1. Odor had a hit and RBI with three runs scored in the win on Thursday.

Texas Rangers C:

Robinson Chirinos

The Rangers catcher had a homer with two RBIs.

Texas Rangers P:

Cole Hamels

The Rangers left hander on the year is 13-8 with an ERA of 3.65 and WHIP of 1.19. Hamels has the edge of pitching in a pressure packed situation on Sunday as he was on the mound when Texas defeated the LA Angels to win the AL West division. He pitched a complete game nine innings and allowed two earned runs and just three hits.

Toronto Blue Jays DH:

Edwin Encarnacion contributed with two hits and an RBI in a losing cause in Game 1.

Toronto Blue Jays P:

Marcus Stroman

On the year the 24 year old is 4-0 with an ERA of 1.67 and WHIP of 0.96.

Rangers/Blue Jays Summary:

Stroman has had great success against the Texas Rangers lineup. They have just 2 hits in 24 at bats career wise against the Rangers right hander. Stroman gets the nod as the roster pick from the pitchers in this game. The left hander Hamels had had difficulty in the past battling Edwin Encarnacion. The Texas DH is hitting .357 life time against Hamels.

Fantasy Roster Pick Recommendations:

P: Marcus Stroman (Blue Jays)
DH: Edwin Encarnacion (Blue Jays)

Kansas City Royals P:

Johnny Cueto

The Royals veteran right hander is 11-13 with an ERA of 3.44 and WHIP of 1.13.

Astros/Royals Summary:

The Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer has had success against Kazmir with a lifetime mark of .391. Omar Infante bats .407 against Kazmir with two homers and seven RBIs. Johnny Cueto is a free agent at the end of the year and has great motivation in the playoffs. Colby Rasmus has had the most success against Cueto in his career with a .333 batting average with a homer and five RBIs. Carlos Gomez has smacked two homers off Cueto in 12 at bats.

Fantasy Roster Picks Recommendations:

P: Johnny Cueto (Royals)

St Louis Cardinals P:

John Lackey

The veteran right hander is 13-10 with an ERA of 2.77 and WHIP of 1.21.

In 40 at bats Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta has belted three homers. Matt Holliday is 5 of 9 with three RBIs against the Cubs lefty.

Jacob DeGrom

LA Dodgers P:

Clayton Kershaw

Kershaw this year is 16-7 with an ERA of 2.13 and WHIP of 0.88.

Mets/Dodgers Summary

As a team the LA Dodgers hit just .175 against Jacob DeGrom. This has a look of a low scoring pitching duel that will be decided by each bullpen. Andre Eithier is 2 for 6 and Adrian Gonzalez 3 for 8 against DeGrom and the rest of the LA roster struggles. The Mets hit .213 against Kershaw. Ruben Tejada had five hits in 14 at bats against Kershaw and has drawn three walks.

Fantasy Roster Picks Recommendations:

P: Clayton Kershaw (Dodgers)
1B: Adrian Gonzalez (Dodgers)
