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.)

COVID issues

Keegan Akin and Anthony Santander were placed on the restricted list on Monday. This is most likely because they were not vaccinated as the team plays a series in Toronto. They should be back once the team returns to Baltimore on Friday.

Hacker Duane Underwood laid down on COVID-IL on Monday. Watch as this situation becomes a bigger problem for hackers.

Closest chaos

According to manager Tony Larsa, Liam Hendrix was unavailable on Sunday and Monday due to arm stiffness. The White Sox didn’t put him on IL which should be a good sign at the moment, but that’s troubling for one of the elite few that is shutting down in the game. Kendall Grafman will fill in Hendrix so he can return.

Seranthoni Dominguez played the ninth clean game to score the victory for Velez on Monday. With Corey Nebel out, Dominguez appears to be the next man to save balls in Philadelphia. Brad Hand could factor in too, but for now it looks like Seranthony is going to get some running and will be of real value in the near future.

quick beats

Eduardo Rodriguez was placed on the restricted list by the Tigers on Monday. Tigers general manager Alex Avila released a statement saying he had informed the team that he had been selected not to join the team due to “personal matters”. This does not look good at all. It will probably be dropped in most formats where hiding it is not an option.

Eli White was put on IL with his broken wrist. He will likely miss at least the next 10 weeks because he is not expected to resume baseball activities for at least six weeks. Liudi Taveras has been called up to take White’s place on the roster which is well worth the speculation about stolen bases in deeper formats.

He upheld the one-game suspension of Josh Donaldson on Monday. The suspension will serve on Tuesday.

Stephen Strasbourg was placed in IL after experiencing discomfort following his usual Bullpen session. Director Davy Martinez stated that he did not know if the problem was related to the thoracic outlet surgery he had. Strasbourg’s pace waned on his first start to the season on Thursday and he took a heavy blow. It’s dropable in all shapes as you can’t reserve it.

Yasmani Grandal was placed on the IL with back spasms. This move is retroactive to June 12.

Jake Burger left Monday’s game after sustaining a ball injury in his hand. The X-ray was negative, so consider it day in and day out for now.

Aristides Aquino on IL with strain of calf. Jonathan India was brought back from IL in the corresponding step.

Ozzy Albis left Monday’s game with a broken foot. And Alpes was injured on the field in the fifth half.

Expect him to go to IL, but there’s no timeline for his return now.

Juan Soto left Monday’s game with knee pain. Apparently, Soto hit his knee on the bench in the dugout and the citizens made a precautionary move. Take it day by day at this time.

Various news and notes

According to Alex Stumpf of DK Pittsburgh, Oneil Cruz should reach Super Two status within two to three days. It’s no surprise to see the pirates play a game of service time with Cruz because it’s one of their best prospects. It seems likely that he will debut at Pittsburgh’s next home versus the Giants on Friday. It must choose in all forms where it is available.

John Bertie went 2-4 with a stolen base in the loss to the Phillies.

Berti hit 0.311 with eight bases stolen in June with a 91% area connection and is still somehow on the list of only 16% of CBS tournaments. Bertie is in a hot streak and got plenty of playing time while qualifying in second and third. It should be included in all formats where you need plagiarized bases.

Lance Lynn appeared in his first season after revitalizing outside of IL, throwing 4.1 innings in a loss to the Tigers, allowing three runs earned on 10 hits and no walks while hitting four.

Lynn’s speed was only 88 mph which is a bit disconcerting, but it’s just his first start. The fact that he didn’t walk with anyone is great, but he was very battered with Philo low and made a lot of mistakes in the area. Apparently he was frustrated and ended up with the third White Sox head coach while in the dugout which led to some great tweets:

Flowing jugs (<50% at CBS)

Jug of the Day: Zack Davis vs. CIN

You won’t get many hits, but it’s a great match at home.

High-Risk Options: JT Brubaker at STL, Dane Dunning vs HOU, Matthew Liberatore vs PIT.

Jug of Tomorrow: Alex Faedo vs CHW

Faido put in a good show and has a good start at home.

High-Risk Options: Andre Ballante vs. Pete, San Francisco’s John Hesley, Ruancy Contreras at STL.

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”.
