Sleeper and the Bust DK مسابقة Competition

Most Tuesdays, Fridays, and some other days, Paul Sporer and I will do work 5 dollar kings game for anyone interested. A link will be added as soon as it becomes available.

quick beats
Giancarlo Stanton He left Monday’s game after contaminating the floor of his foot. The X-ray was negative so it appears to have avoided serious injury. Take it day in and day out for now.

Franchi Cordero He left Monday’s game after hitting a wall while trying to catch him:

Franchi was taken off the field and diagnosed with a sprained ankle and is expected to undergo an MRI on Tuesday. Consider it day in and day out for now, but it looks like it’s going to hit IL.

Brandon Drury Placed on 7-day IL concussion. Drury was hit in the head. There is no timetable for his recovery.

Vidal Brogan left Monday’s match after receiving a heavy blow at second base Alex Verdugo.

The injury is not considered serious. Take it day in and day out for now.

Austin Slater was placed on IL with pinky dislocation/hand sprain. There is no timetable for his return.

Various news and notes
Louis Brinson He went 2 for 5 with runs at home in the win over the Dodgers on Monday.

Brinson recently traded with Giants and was called up. He’s a former senior player who crushed minors time and time again, but has struggled to make consistent connections in the major leagues. Tools have never been in question, but if he can start making connections close to the league average, he could be a fantasy superstar.

Jose Suarez He threw seven goal-free innings against the Tigers, allowing only three hits and a walk as he hit seven times in victory.

Suarez has been outstanding in his last seven matches, racking up 1.76 ERAs and 39 strokes in 41 runs while racking up five wins. Suarez benefited from an impressive schedule during this stretch, but his previous three starts before this were against the Yankees, Reese and the Mariners. He’s lined up with his next starts as Guardians and Rangers, so the schedule is still very favorable.

Elvis Andrews He went 2-4 with a run in the victory over the Mariners on Monday.

Andrus was fired by athletics in mid-August, but hit 0.303 with three home runs and a base stolen since August 19 since signing with the White Sox. Even better, he’s been driving to Chicago since the end of the month. Andrus doesn’t have a lot of ups, but in the deep leagues he has a deceptive value.

CJ Abrams He went 4-5 with a hat-trick in a win over the Cardinals

Abrams was one of the centerpieces of John Soto He traded on deadline and was widely considered a top five pre-season lead. Although he struggled in the junior season with San Diego and Washington, he is only 21 years old and there are still a lot of positives on the profile. He could be a steal in the drafts next season as he likely enters the year with a full-time role in rebuilding the Nationals.

Flowing pitchers (<50% at CBS)

jug of the day: Eduardo Rodriguez that LAA

The last start wasn’t a good one, but it’s a good match and there’s no reason he’s less than 50% on the list.

High risk options: Rich Hill in TB, Mike Myers Return.

jug for tomorrow: Billy Walter vs MIA

Walter was cool quietly and had a great game against Miami.

High-Risk Options: Kane and Ladechuk vs. ATL, Tommy Henry and SD, Drew Hutchison that LAA, Javier the Lion versus CIN.

For those of you who would like to see how these shots work, I have a document I put together to track stats from recommended shooters. It does not include “high-risk options”.
