After this weekend there will only be 10 days left in the MLB season. Don’t neglect the three-day week to end the season. Often times leagues can be decided by one at-bat. Which means we need to be in on players now if you want that leg up on your rival manager.

 

Notable schedules:

Seven games: Orioles, Red Sox, Nationals (DH)

Five games: Diamondbacks, Astros, Mets, Cardinals

 

10/12 Adds

Hunter Greene (CIN/SP) – Greene is a raw talent, with big strikeout upside. He should get one start in each of the next two weeks. Both are serviceable as it’s against the Pirates and Cubs.

Cody Morris (CLE/SP) – Morris came int0 2022 as a well-regarded prospect. He missed out on his chance of an opening day spot as well as most of the season due to an injury. He was able to make it five innings in his last start. He’ll get matchups against the Rays and Royals over the last 10 days.

Bailey Ober (MIN/SP) – Ober lines up for two solid matchups against the White Sox and Tigers. He projects as the SP17 this week on our Streamonator.

Luis Severino (NYY/SP) – Severino is still available in a hand full of 12 team leagues. He should get two starts this week as well.

Jon Gray (TEX/SP) – Mariners this week and the Yankees next week. He stretched out to 5 innings on Friday allowing no runs.

Brandon Marsh (PHI/OF) – Phillies have ten games remaining, eight against RHP and all in good hitter’s parks. Grab who can from their roster.

Ji-Hwan Bae (PIT/2B) – Speed first with good plate skills. Look to add if you trying to chip away at steals. He had 30 in 108 games in Triple-A and has two already to his name the bigs.

Gavin Sheets (CWS/1B,OF) – Currently the White Sox are scheduled to face one LHP in their nine remaining games. Sheets is hitting .252/.306/.440 against RHP this season, along with all 14 of his home runs.

Nick Gordon (MIN/2B,SS,OF) – Gordon is slashing .295/.334/.480 against RHP this season. The Twins are scheduled to face seven in their last nine games.

Mike Yastrzemski (SFG/OF) – Mike is 6-18 this week with 2 homers entering Saturday. It’s been a tough year but he may be catching fire and will see eight righties in their last nine games.

Drew Smyly (CHC/SP) – Smyly is coming back from shoulder fatigue and is hoping for a return against the Phillies on 9/27. I wouldn’t use him there but if all goes well, he should pitch on 10/3 or 10/4 against the Reds.

Hayden Wesneski (CHC/SP) – Wesneski has now transitioned to the rotation and has two starts under his belt. Hayden racked up 13 ks in 13.1 IP while allowing 3 ERs, on 8 hits, and 2 walks. Granted, this was against the Rockies and Pirates but by all means, looks the part. He lines up for a day game at home against the Phillies this week but will have a nice match up against the Reds the following week.

 

15 Team Adds

TJ Friedl / Jake Fraley / Mike Siani (CIN/OF) – The Reds will face seven RHPs in their last nine games. Fraley has the most power but they all have similar profiles.

Joey Wentz (DET/SP) – Wentz does a good job of limiting hard contact but is fairly average everywhere else. He’ll get two starts against the Royals and Twins. Both of whom have team K-rates of over 24% against LHP since August 1st.

Bryce Elder (ATL/SP) – Elder made a spot start for Spencer Strider earlier this week. The Braves placed Strider was placed on IL Saturday morning. It’s likely Elder will fill his role for his next two turns (likely the Nationals and Marlins).

Dane Dunning (TEX/SP) – Dunning didn’t take the step forward this year as I expected but he has a chance to end the season strong with starts in Seattle and Anaheim this week.

Graham Ashcraft (CIN/SP) – Ashcraft is someone to monitor on Saturday to see how deep into the game he pitches. He’s an appealing add as he will have two starts against the Cubs to end the season.

 

Feeling lucky or just desperate?

Chase Anderson (CIN/SP) – Mediocre veteran but two starts against the Pirates and Cubs this week.

Daniel Lynch (KCR/SP) – Two starts against the Guardians and Tigers, both are bottom 10 offenses against LHP since August 1st.

Was ready to add Ward or Wong to replace Cron for my H2H championship, but now you’ve piqued my interest with Marsh—who do you like of the three?
