Mauricio Dubon Hits Three-Run Home Run Wednesday

San Francisco Giants second baseman/outfielder Mauricio Dubon went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Rockies. Dubon crushed a fifth-inning Yence Almonte breaking ball into the centerfield seats for his third HR of the season. While he hasn't hit for power this season (.386 slugging percentage), Dubon has hit for average, batting .286 with 18 RBI.

Dean Kremer Has First Poor Start Wednesday

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Dean Kremer fell to 1-1 in Wednesday's 9-1 loss to the Red Sox. Kremer lasted just 2 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks with two strikeouts. The 24-year-old had three great starts prior to this one, but it brings his season totals to a 4.82 ERA with 22 strikeouts and 12 walks over 18 2/3 IP. This will likely be Kremer's last start of the season, but he showed enough to garner intrigue in dynasty leagues.

Johnny Cueto Allows Seven Runs In Monday Loss

San Francisco Giants starting Johnny Cueto turned in a poor outing in Monday's 7-2 loss to the Rockies. Cueto pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing seven runs on eight hits (including a solo home run) and three walks with four strikeouts. The veteran just hasn't been able to return to his former self and now owns a 5.53 ERA for the season. Needless to say, Cueto should be avoided for his final start of the season against the Padres.

John Means Strikes Out A Dozen In Sunday Win

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher John Means had his best start of the season in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Rays. Means pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing a single run on three hits (including a solo home run) and no walks with 12 strikeouts. The 27-year-old struggled mightily at the beginning of the season but has an impressive 2.74 ERA over four starts in September. Means' next start will be a decent matchup at the Blue Jays and, given how he has pitched lately, he is worth starting for fantasy players.

Darin Ruf Plates Four Sunday

San Francisco Giants first baseman/outfielder Darin Ruf continued to hit well in Sunday's 14-2 win over the A's. Ruf went 2-for-4 with a single, a two-run home run, four RBI, and two walks. The veteran has posted an insane .400 with four HR and nine RBI in September. Hopefully, fantasy players have a lineup they are comfortable with heading into the end of the season, but Ruf could be a nice streaming option if they aren't.

Tyler Anderson Earns Win Sunday

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Tyler Anderson improved to 3-3- in Sunday's 14-2 win over the A's. Anderson pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing two runs (none earned) on four hits and three walks with four strikeouts. Anderson now has a 4.53 ERA on the season, but should be avoided in his final start against the Padres.

Brandon Crawford Hits Grand Slam Sunday, Stays Hot

San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford had a big game at the plate in Sunday's 14-2 win over the A's. Crawford went 2-for-5 with a double, a grand slam (his sixth home run of the season), and two strikeouts. The veteran has been hitting well lately, batting .318 with 13 RBI in September. Given his recent performance, Crawford is worth a look as a potential streamer for the last week of the season and is definitely worth a look in daily fantasy.

Austin Hays Hits Solo Home Run Friday

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Austin Hays provided all of the team's runs in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Rays. Hays went 2-for-3 with a single, a solo home run, and a walk. He took Tyler Glasnow deep in the fourth inning for his second HR of the season. Hays has not provided the success he had in 2019 and now owns a disappointing .227/.296/.307 slash line on the season.

Alex Cobb Takes Tough Loss Friday

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Alex Cobb fell to 1-5 despite pitching well in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Rays. Cobb pitched six innings, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts. Despite the positive outing, the veteran now owns a 4.76 ERA and should be avoided for the remainder of the season.

Logan Webb Pitches Poorly Again In Friday Start

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Logan Webb fell to 2-4 in Friday's 6-0 loss to the A's. Webb pitched 3 1/3 innings, allowing six runs on six hits (including a three-run home run) and two walks with one strikeout. The 23-year-old started the season well but now has a 5.73 ERA. Fantasy players should definitely avoid Webb for the remainder of the season.

Hitter Streamers for Fantasy Baseball Week 10

Welcome back to another installment of the hitting streamers column! This edition is for September 21 through September 27.

As will be the case every week, I will offer a couple of worthy streamers for each position (catcher, corner infield, middle infield, outfield) based on the number of games the players have for the upcoming week, favorable matchups, or injury replacements. You may not always see well-known names in this column; my goal is to identify hitters who I think have the best chance to do well for the following week, not just to identify names you may recognize who are available.

This column will highlight players rostered in roughly fewer than 50% of Yahoo leagues who could present as nice streaming options for the upcoming week. This will be the final full week of the fantasy season, potentially championship week for some fantasy players. As such, roster choices will be extremely important this week. Let's go find some players who can help seal the deal!

Behind the Plate

Jorge Alfaro (C, MIA) - 30% rostered

Jorge Alfaro has missed some playing time this season with injuries, but he has performed quite well recently in a hot Marlins lineup. Alfaro has hit .350 with two home runs and nine RBI over the last seven days This week the Marlins will face four games at the Braves (5.34 team ERA in September) and three games at the Yankees (3.69 team ERA in September). While the Yankees matchups are tough, the four Braves matchups are favorable. At this point, Alfaro is worth streaming even for the first half of the week paired with, say Sean Murphy for the second half of the week.

Also Consider: Sean Murphy (C, OAK) 29% rostered

 

At the Corners

Jared Walsh (1B,LAAF) - 38% rostered

Admittedly, this stream suggestion is based on a relatively small sample size. That being said, Jared Walsh has been on an absolute tear lately. The 27-year-old has hit an insane .467 with five HR and 13 RBI over the last seven days. These numbers obviously aren't sustainable, and his matchups this week are less than ideal (one game against the Rangers, two at the Padres, three at the Dodgers), but he has been hitting so well lately that it's hard to resist. This would be a risky stream, but could pay huge dividends for the final full week.

Nate Lowe (1B, TB) - 12% rostered

Nate Lowe has not been with the Rays all that long, but he has been contributing, batting .350 with three HR, eight RBI, and a stolen base over the last seven days. The Rays have hit well all season long and get great matchups this week with three games at the Mets (4.94 team ERA in September) and three against the Phillies (4.94 team ERA in September). Lowe has not been as hot as Walsh recently, but is a much safer streaming option for this week.

Also Consider: Alec Bohm (3B, PHI) 37% rostered, Maikel Franco (3B, KC) 22% rostered

 

Up the Middle

Chris Taylor (2B/SS/OF, LAD) - 52% rostered

I wrote about Chris Taylor last week and he is now just over 50% rostered, but he is such a good streaming option and is still pretty available. Taylor came through last week, hitting .333 with three HR and six RBI over the last seven days. The Dodgers get six matchups this week, all at home. Three games are against a relatively tough A's rotation and three against a favorable Angels rotation. With the Dodgers playing so well lately, Taylor is certainly worth a stream for the final full week.

Tommy La Stella (1B/2B/3B, OAK) - 43% rostered

Once again, Tommy La Stella has been a valuable fantasy asset this season, hitting well with multi-position eligibility. He hasn't hit eye-poppingly well lately, but has provided a solid .313 batting average with one HR and four RBI over the last seven games. The A's face the Dodgers for three games on the road, which is not great, but they then get four games against the Mariners. For fantasy managers who can afford the roster spot, La Stella is a nice streaming option for the back half of the week.

Also Consider: Asdrubal Cabrera (1B/2B/3B, WSH) 16% rostered, Miguel Rojas (SS, MIA) 10% rostered

 

In the Outfield

Clint Frazier (OF, NYY) - 36% rostered

There has never been a doubt that Clint Frazier could be a solid fantasy contributor, but limited playing time has always been his downfall. He has been seeing regular playing time lately and has made the most of it, batting .350 with two HR and six RBI over the last seven days. The Yankees always have a dangerous lineup and should continue to thrive this week with matchups against the Blue Jays (6.38 team ERA in September) and Marlins (5.10 team ERA in September). All in all, Frazier is a great streaming option this week.

Ryan Braun (OF, BAL) - 47% rostered

This one is a fun blast from the past. Ryan Braun is no longer the player he once was, but he has been hitting like his old self lately, batting .278 with three HR and nine RBI over the last seven days. The Brewers get eight games this week, and while they aren't the best matchups (three at Reds, four against Cardinals), the number of games makes Braun a steaming option to consider.

Also Consider: Brian Anderson (3B/OF, MIA) 30% rostered, Kole Calhoun (OF, ARI) 20% rostered, Brandon Nimmo (OF, NYM) 19% rostered

Keegan Akin Earns First Win Of Season Wednesday

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Keegan Akin improved to 1-1 in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Braves. Akin pitched five innings, allowing no runs on three hits and a walks with nine strikeouts. The 25-year-old rookie now has a 3.38 ERA with 25 strikeouts and nine walks over 18 2/3 IP this season. Akin will likely face the Red Sox on the road in a favorable matchup in his next start. Given the strikeout prowess he has shown, Akin is an intriguing start for his next matchup.

Hanser Alberto Held Hitless Tuesday, Continues Cold Streak

Baltimore Orioles second/third baseman Hanser Alberto continued his cold September in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Braves, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. Alberto started the season off well but has struggled in September, hitting just .189 with no extra-base hits. Fantasy managers should bench Alberto if they can afford it as he is not producing during the most important part of the fantasy season.

Thomas Eshelman Takes First Loss Of Season Tuesday

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Thomas Eshelman fell to 3-1 in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Braves. Eshelman. pitched 3 1/3. inning, allowing two runs on six hits (including a solo home run) and a walk with four strikeouts. The 26-year-old now has a 4.13 ERA with 15 strikeouts and nine walks over 28 1/3 IP this season. He will next face a tough matchup against the Rays. Given the matchup and his lack of strikeouts, Eshelman has low fantasy upside for his next start.

DJ Stewart Continues To Hit Monday, Plates Four

Baltimore Orioles outfielder DJ Stewart continued his hot streak in Monday's 14-1 win over the Braves. Stewart went 2-for-5 with a single, a three-run home run, four RBI, and two strikeouts. The 26-year-old has been one of baseball's hottest hitters in September, batting an impressive .371 with seven HR and 12 RBI. At this point, he is certainly worth a look for fantasy players looking to get some extra momentum down the home stretch.

Austin Hays Collects Two Hits In Return From Injured List

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Austin Hays (rib) returned from the injured list on Monday after recovering from a fractured rib and went 2-for-4 with two singles and a walk in a 14-1 win over the Braves. Hays had been out since the middle of August after getting hit by a pitch and running into an outfield wall. The 25-year-old is now hitting just .219 over 86 plate appearances. However, he hit .309 over 75 plate appearances last season, so hopefully he can regress in that direction for the rest of the season.

Jorge Lopez Pitches Well Monday, Earns Win

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Jorge Lopez had a solid start in Monday's 14-1 rout of the Braves. Lopez did a great job navigating a tough Braves lineup, allowing a single run on five hits (including a solo home run) and two walks with three strikeouts over seven innings pitched. The 27-year-old now has a 5.23 ERA with 22 strikeouts and 10 walks over 31 innings this season. He will next face another tough matchup against the Rays. While he did pitch well on Monday, fantasy players should not rely on Lopez to replicate his success in his next start.

Hitter Streamers for Fantasy Baseball Week 9

Welcome back to another installment of the hitting streamers column! This edition is for September 14 through September 20.

As will be the case every week, I will offer a couple of worthy streamers for each position (catcher, corner infield, middle infield, outfield) based on the number of games the players have for the upcoming week, favorable matchups, or injury replacements. You may not always see well-known names in this column; my goal is to identify hitters who I think have the best chance to do well for the following week, not just to identify names you may recognize who are available.

This column will highlight players rostered in roughly fewer than 50% of Yahoo leagues who could present as nice streaming options for the upcoming week. With just a few weeks left in the fantasy baseball season, some managers will need to make final choice moves to propel themselves to victory. Which players could help you this week? Let's find out!

 

Behind the Plate

Sean Murphy (C, OAK) - 18% rostered

Sean Murphy has not performed as well as fantasy players had hoped this season, but he has performed quite well recently, particularly among available catchers. Murphy has hit .333 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and has the matchups to continue to hit this week. The A's will face the Mariners on the road twice, the Rockies on the road twice, and the Giants three times at home. Hopefully, fantasy players won't have to plug a new catcher into their lineups this late in the season, but Murphy is a worthy candidate if they need to.

Also Consider: Joey Bart (C, SF) 31% rostered, Kurt Suzuki (C, WAS) 12% rostered 

 

At the Corners

Brandon Belt (1B/OF, SF) - 50% rostered

I wrote about Brandon Belt last week and, while his rostership has increased, he still qualifies for this article. Belt continued to produce offensively last week, hitting .278 with two HR and seven RBI. The Giants only have five matchups this week (two at the Mariners and three at the A's), but the whole Giants' offense have been on fire lately. Belt has been on a hot enough streak that he is worth a roster spot despite the lack of matchups.

Bobby Dalbec (1B/3B, BOS) - 15% rostered

Once again, another young prospect has found his way into this article. Bobby Dalbec got called up at the end of August and has compiled an impressive .719 slugging percentage with five HR and eight RBI. The Red Sox get six decent matchups this week with three games at the Marlins (4.69 team ERA) and three against the Yankees (4.44 team ERA). Given the pop he has shown, Dalbec could be a nice spark plug for fantasy players down the stretch.

Also Consider: Jeimer Candelario (1B/3B, DET) 45% rostered, Miguel Andujar (3B, NYY) 22% rostered, Rio Ruiz (1B/3B, BAL) 7% rostered

 

Up the Middle

Chris Taylor (2B/SS/OF, LAD) - 29% rostered

Like teammate Kike Hernandez, Chris Taylor usually pops up as a useful streamer at some point during every fantasy season, and now is the time. Taylor has been getting playing time lately and capitalizing on it, hitting .350 with one HR and five RBI over the last seven days. The Dodgers get seven nice matchups, three at the Padres and four tasty matchups at the Rockies. Factor in the lineup he hits in and his multi-position eligibility and Taylor is a prime streaming candidate.

Andres Gimenez (2B/SS, NYM) - 13% rostered

Another prospect who has performed well this season, Andres Gimenez has been particularly hot lately. The 22-year-old has hit .409 with one HR, five RBI, and a stolen base over the last seven days. The Mets have six favorable matchups this week, three at the Phillies (5.15 team ERA) and three against the Braves (4.71 team ERA). Gimenez is worth a stream this week given his production at the plate and his speed.

Also Consider: Nick Solak (2B/3B/OF, TEX) 34% rostered, Tommy La Stella (1B/2B/3B, OAK) 28% rostered, Nick Madrigal (2B/SS, CHW) 26% rostered

 

In the Outfield

Adam Duvall (OF, ATL) - 47% rostered

The Braves have been putting up some big scores lately, and Adam Duvall has had a lot to do with it. Duvall has crushed the baseball lately, batting .357 with five HR and 11 RBI over the last seven days. The Braves have decent matchups this week with three games at the Orioles and three games at the Mets. At this point, Duvall is so hot that he would be worth a flyer regardless of the matchups.

Ryan Mountcastle (OF, BAL) - 47% rostered

Ryan Mountcastle has continued to impress since joining the O's, who have played surprisingly well as a team. He has been on fire at the plate lately, hitting .526 with two HR and nine RBI over the last seven days. The O's get eight matchups this week, and while they aren't fantastic (three against the Braves, five against the Rays), Mountcastle's recent performance and the sheer number of games makes him a worthy streamer.

Also Consider: Alex Dickerson (OF, SF) 29% rostered, Kike Hernandez (2B/SS/OF, LAD) 18% rostered, Mauricio Dubon (2B/SS/OF, SF) 7% rostered

Renato Nunez Hits 11th Home Run Of Season Sunday

Baltimore Orioles first baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez went 2-for-4 with a single, a solo home run, and two strikeouts in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Yankees. Nunez took J.A. Happ deep in the second inning for his 11th HR of the season. This was nice to see, as Nunez has been slumping through the month of September. He has been known to go on hot streaks, however, so fantasy players should keep an eye on him. His upcoming matchups against a poor Braves pitching staff could be a nice opportunity for him to get going.

John Means Pitches Well Again In No-Decision Sunday

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher John Means turned in an encouraging start in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Yankees. Means pitched six innings, allowing a single run on five hits (including a solo home run) and one walks with four strikeouts. Means has now pitched two consecutive solid games, but still owns a subpar 5.63 ERA on the season. Means will next face a tough matchup against the Rays. Hopefully, he can continue his streak of strong performances, but fantasy players should not count on him down the stretch.

Renato Nunez Goes Hitless Saturday, Continues To Slump

Baltimore Orioles first baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Saturday's extra-innings 2-1 loss to the Yankees. Nunez, who can be quite streaky, is in a massive cold streak, batting just .147 in the month of September. However, he does have three home runs in the month, so he has still provided a bit of fantasy value. Unfortunately, fantasy players may need to keep him on their benches for the rest of the season unless he can start to hit for average again.

Dean Kremer Pitches Well Again Saturday, Takes No-Decision

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Dean Kremer put forth another solid effort in Saturday's 2-1 extra-innings loss to the Yankees. Kremer pitched five innings, allowing a single run on four hits and three walks with seven strikeouts. The 24-year-old rookie has now made two starts, both against the Yankees, and owns a 1.64 ERA with 14 strikeouts and six walks over 11 IP. His next matchup will be another tough one against the Rays at home, but, based on how he fared against the Yankees, Kremer may be an interesting daily fantasy option.

Keegan Akin Does Not Pitch Past First Inning Friday

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Keegan Akin had a very short start in Friday's Game Two 10-1 loss to the Yankees. Akin pitched just 2/3 of an inning, allowing four runs on three hits and a walk with one strikeout. The 25-year-old rookie's first two starts went well, but with this one he now has a 4.61 ERA with 16 strikeouts and eight walks over 13 2/3 IP this season. His next start will likely come against either the Braves or Rays, both tough matchups. Fantasy players in single-season leagues should avoid Akin if they can.

Alex Cobb Allows Three Home Runs Friday

Baltimore Orioles Alex Cobb was done in by the long ball in Friday's Game One 6-0 loss to the Yankees. Cobb pitched four innings, allowing five runs on seven hits (including three home runs) and a walk with five strikeouts. Cobb started the season well but has regressed back towards his metrics of the past several seasons and now owns a 5.03 ERA with 29 strikeouts and 13 walks over 39 1/3 IP. His next start will likely be against a tough Braves matchup, although fantasy players should not trust him in any matchup at this time.

Logan Webb Roughed Up In Tuesday Start

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Logan Webb turned in a lackluster start in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Mariners. Webb pitched five innings, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks with four strikeouts. The 23-year-old started the season strong but has struggled since and now has a 5.23 ERA with 39 strikeouts and 18 walks over 41 1/3 IP. His next start should be a tough one at the Padres. Webb should be avoided for this start.

Ryan Mountcastle Hits Two-Run Home Run Tuesday

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Ryan Mountcastle stayed hot at the plate in Tuesday's 11-2 win over the Mets. Mountcastle went 2-for-5 with a double, a two-run home run, and a strikeout. The 23-year-old took Michael Wacha deep in the third inning for his fourth HR of the season. Mountcastle has performed quite well since joining the O's, posting a .339/.397/.607 slash line with 13 RBI in 63 plate appearances. He is currently just 39% rostered and is worth a look for the final push of the fantasy season.

John Means Earns First Win Of Season Tuesday

Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher John Means improved to 1-3 in Tuesday's 11-2 drubbing of the Mets. Means pitched six innings, allowing a single run on three hits (including a solo home run) and a walk with five strikeouts. The 27-year-old had an excellent rookie season but has not been able to put it all together this season, compiling a 6.58 ERA with 17 strikeouts and five walks over 26 IP. This start was encouraging, but Means' next start will likely come against the Yankees on the road, a start that fantasy players should avoid until he proves he can pitch more consistently.

Kevin Gausman Fans Nine In Monday Win

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Kevin Gausman was on his game in Monday's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks. Gausman pitched six innings, allowing a single run on two hits and three walks with nine strikeouts. Gausman has pitched to form this season, allowing a mediocre 4.05 ERA but with an impressive 62 strikeouts over 46 2/3 IP. His next start should come against a tough Padres matchup on the road, but his performance lately makes him a fantasy start.

Donovan Solano Hits Two-Run Home Run Sunday

San Francisco Giants second baseman Donovan Solano continued to hit in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks, going 3-for-3 with a single, a double, a two-run home run, and a walk. Solano took Alex Young deep in the sixth inning for his third HR of the season. Solano has absolutely mashed at the plate this season, compiling a .344/.388/.516 slash line with 27 RBI. He has been a huge fantasy asset and should continue to be in fantasy managers' lineups for the rest of the season.

Tyler Rogers Earns Third Save Of Season Sunday

San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Tyler Rogers notched his third save of the season in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks. Rogers pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning with two strikeouts to lock the game down, while teammate Tony Watson pitched a clean eighth inning with two strikeouts as well. This comes immediately after a game in which Rogers allowed a run in the eighth inning with Watson earning the save. Rogers has struggled this season, allowing a 6.00 ERA while converting three of five save opportunities. The path to saves on the Giants' team has been unclear this season, with multiple players seeing opportunities. Given his overall performance, Rogers is not a great fantasy option at this time.
