quick beats

Ramon Laureano was placed on IL. This season will likely be over.

Ozzie Albies was put on IL with a broken pinky in his right hand. This could end his season being disappointing as he just got back from IL. The Albies suffered one season disaster and are likely to be discounted by 2023.

Nick Solak will miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with a broken foot.

JT Brubaker was put on IL with a backline injury. He will likely miss the rest of the season.

Brendan Rodgers left Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury. Take it day in and day out for now.

Various news and notes
Cody Morris threw six runs against the Twins, allowing only one run with six strokes and one walk as he made six in the loss on Sunday.

Morris wasn’t overly impressive at first, getting only six jets on the fastball and the shear, but he was very efficient and didn’t make many mistakes. He’s not an ace in the future, but he could be an effective player in the long run and could potentially compete for a rotation spot in 2023.

Oswaldo Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a home run in the win over the Brewers on Sunday.

The Cabrera has started slow since its debut, coming in at .228/.288/.356 with two home runs and a base stolen in 111 plate appearances. However, since 9/10, he hit 346, and both Homer and the Stolen Base came in that stretch. He needs to stay hot to keep up his role, but any part of this Yankees lineup is worth a look.

Luis Rengivo went 2-4 with two games at home in the victory over the Mariners on Sunday.

Not only did Rengifo go twice, he did so from both sides of the board. He’s quietly put on a really great season, hitting .275/.307/.455 with 15 home runs and six stolen bases. While he does offer a glimpse into a super utility man, he will continue to regularly play on The Exhausted Angels and should have a decent size role in the coming year.

Luis Sessa threw five goal-free innings against the Cardinal, allowing only one hit and two walks during one hit.

This was a surprising outing considering how much he had struggled in his earlier debut against the pirates. Cessa struggles with it, but he’s done a great job in the area here. His next starts are home off Milwaukee and at Cubs, which makes him risky but not out of question.

Flowing pitchers (<50% at CBS)

Jug of the Day: Wade Miley at the Museum of Islamic Art

Miley had a nice comeback from IL and got her Marlins in Miami.

High-Risk Options: Jose Suarez vs. SEA.

Pitcher for Tomorrow: Austin Voth vs. DET

It’s a bit risky if you’re after a win, but Voth put in a really good show in Baltimore and that’s as good as it can be.

High-Risk Options: CIN’s Brayan Bello, Zack Greinke vs MIN, Aaron Civale at CHW, Adrian Sampson at MIA, Michael Grove against ARI.

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”.
