  • Rafael Devers was 2 for 4 with a pair of solo home runs in a Red Sox loss to the Indians. Devers has been incredible since making his big league debut. The 20 year old is hitting .339 with 9 HR and 12 RBI since his debut. Edwin Encarnacion matched Devers with 2 homers of his own. He had 4 RBI in the win. Encarnacion now has 26 HR and 70 RBI this year.
  • Aaron Judge went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in a Yankees win over the Mets. Judge has slowed since the All-Star break hitting just 6 homers in that span. Aaron Hicks was 2 for 4 with a solo HR of his own. Hicks also scored 2 runs. Hicks has been a solid OF option when healthy and with regular playing time. He’s worth a look even in standard mixed leagues.
  • Roberto Osuna recorded the final 4 outs of a Blue Jays win to nail down a save over the Rays. Osuna has been 1 of fantasy’s best closers this year. He has 30 saves with a 3.24 ERA 0.86 WHIP and 68 Ks this season. Josh Donaldson went 2 for 4 with a 2-run HR in the win. Donaldson is hitting .258 with 17 HR this year.
  • Giancarlo Stanton keeps hitting home runs! Stanton went 2 for 4 with a 2-run HR in a Marlins win over the Giants. He now has 43 HR on the season which is a new single season record for a Marlins player. We still have a month and a half of baseball to play! Stanton crush!
  • Justin Upton went 1 for 3 with a 2-run HR in a Tigers loss to the Rangers. Upton is having a fine season hitting .281 with 23 HR and 85 RBI. Rougned Odor had a nice night going 3 for 4 with a double. He scored 3 runs and also stole 2 bags. Odor has been a bit of a disappointment this year hitting just .219 but he does have 24 HR and now 11 SB.
