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.
DJ Limaheu He was placed on the IL with a toe injury. There is no timetable for his return.
Kibert Ruiz He was removed from the match after sustaining a blow to the testicles with an off-court tackle. Ruiz had to be taken to hospital after the accident. There is no update on his status at the time of writing.
Freddy Peralta He was removed in the third inning of his start due to shoulder strain. This is not good. Peralta stated after the match that he will play again this season, but will be placed on IL which means he will miss more than half of the remaining season.
Various news and notes
Molina runs He went 2-4 with two runs at home in the loss to the Nationals on Thursday.

Molina is in the twilight of his career as he is expected to retire at the end of the season, but he should hold a lot further as Cardinal Swan gives him a future Hall of Famer doing a much deserved win.
Seiya Suzuki He went 2-4 with a home run in the loss to the Reds on Thursday.

Suzuki hasn’t yet delivered on the hype that was there for him when he came from Japan, but over the past month he’s hit a . It looks like Suzuki is getting more comfortable as the season progresses and could be sleeping after the hype in 2023.
Adrian Sampson He threw six runs against the Reds, allowing one to run with five strokes and not walk during one shot.

Sampson is not overwhelming, but it is an interesting streamer player in decent matches. He’s got the Mets on his next start, but then lines up against the Marlins in Miami and the Pirates in Pittsburgh who are the best you could ask for.
Yuan Moncada went 5-6 with two runs at home in the victory over athletics on Thursday.

Moncada has struggled this season, scoring just 0.211/.280/.344 with nine home runs and no stolen bases in 339 games. Moncada has been living on the hype of old possibilities in the fantasy realm for a few seasons because he hasn’t been really good since the 2019 season. The talent is still there and he’s still only 27, so it wouldn’t be fair to write it off completely, but at this point, he probably shouldn’t Listed or drafted into anything but the deepest leagues.
Flowing pitchers (<50% at CBS)
jug of the day: David Peterson At the Museum of Islamic Art
Peterson put in a good show, but it’s more about a great match against the Marlins.
Jug of Tomorrow: John Hesley vs. DET
Hesley has been quietly good since called up and had a nice game.
