This is a lesson from the FAAB Master Class:

Always go YOLO +1

On the Agenda:
1. Various News and Notes
2. Streaming Pitching Options

Various News and Notes
Javy Baez left Sunday’s game with a heel injury. Baez injured the heel on a awkward play in the field, but played through the issue for a while before being removed. After the game he stated that the issue is not serious, so it looks like he will avoid the IL. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Wilmer Flores left Sunday’s game against the Giants with a foot injury. Flores injured the foot when he was hit by a pitch from Drew Pomeranz. X-rays on the foot came back negative and the injury is being characterized as a contusion. Consider him day-to-day at this time.

Gio Urshela left Sunday’s game after fouling off a pitch that hit him in the groin. Manager Aaron Boone said that the removal was precautionary and that he is expected to be fine.

George Springer left Sunday’s with lower back stiffness. Manager AJ Hinch stated after the game that Springer never got stiff and that he will not play on Monday. Consider him day-to-day until we have morte information.

Yasiel Puig left Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury after injuring himself on this awesome catch:


Puig is expected to undergo testing on Monday to reveal the extent of the injury, but the initial diagnosis is that it shouldn’t be a serious issue.

Yandy Diaz left Sunday’s game with a hand injury after being hit by a pitch. The injury was diagnosed as a contusion after x-rays came back negative for any fractures. He is considered day-to-day at this time.

Scott Kingery was activated from the 10-Day IL. Kingery is recovered from the hamstring injury that sent him to the IL. Kingery was on fire before getting hurt, hitting .406/.457/.719 with two home runs and a stolen base. He will likely start off in a reserve role, but should see at bats at multiple positions which will give him enough at bats to be worthy of a pick up in most formats.

Streaming Pitching Options (Less than 50% owned)
Pitcher for Today: None

High Risk Options: Mike Leake at TEX
The Rangers offense is overlooked too often since it is actually pretty good, but Leake has been pitching well as of late. This feels like a trap…

Pitcher for Tomorrow: None

High Risk Options: Lance Lynn vs SEA
Lynn gets has been hit or miss this season and gets a Mariners team that isn’t playing nearly as well as it was a few weeks ago.
