News: Candelario exited Saturday's game with a right knee contusion, and he's day-to-day.

The 23-year-old, who's being given an extended shot to lock down a place in the Tigers' future, may have to take a breather over the next few days. Candelario holds a .294/.379/.459 line with three homers in his first 124 plate appearances for Detroit.

Jose Ramirez
Indians' Jose Ramirez: Perfect day at plate Saturday
Jose Ramirez, 3B, CLE

News: Ramirez went 3-for-3 with a homer and four RBI Saturday against the Mariners.

Ramirez led the Tribe on an 11-run rampage which led to an easy road victory. He's clobbered eight homers this month, as he's been absolutely on fire at the dish, and he's certainly helping fantasy owners at the most important time of the season.

Todd Frazier
Yankees' Todd Frazier: Leaves yard for 27th time Saturday
Todd Frazier, 3B, NYY
9/23/2017
News: Frazier went 1-for-2 with a solo homer and a walk Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Frazier belted his 27th bomb of the season to provide the Yankees an insurance run in the eighth inning of a road victory. He's cranked out six homers this month, but aside from his ability to leave the yard, his batting average has been a liability for fantasy owners.

Yandy Diaz
Indians' Yandy Diaz: Seeing drop in playing time
Yandy Diaz, 3B, CLE

News: Diaz is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners.

Diaz started regularly at third base to open the month, but he will open on the bench Saturday for the fourth day in a row while Giovanny Urshela gets another start at third base.

Giovanny Urshela
Indians' Giovanny Urshela: Starts fourth straight game
Giovanny Urshela, 3B, CLE
9/23/2017
News: Urshela will start at third base Saturday for the fourth game in a row.

Urshela has usurped the starting third-base job from Yandy Diaz, at least for the time being it appears. He will hit eighth in the batting order Saturday against Mariners starter Andrew Moore.

Evan Longoria
Rays' Evan Longoria: Breaks out of homer drought Friday
Evan Longoria, 3B, TB
9/23/2017
News: Longoria went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-3 win over the Orioles.

Longoria's 353-foot shot to left in the third extended the Rays' lead to 5-2, serving as his first round tripper since Sept. 6. and only his third since the calendar flipped to August. The veteran third baseman has had a solid month at the plate despite the lack of pop (four extra-base hits over 80 plate appearances), hitting .284 and driving in 11 runs.

Analysis: 

Alex Bregman
Astros' Alex Bregman: Hitting leadoff Saturday
Alex Bregman, 3B, HOU
9/23/2017
News: Bregman will hit leadoff in Saturday's game against the Angels.

George Springer has been in the leadoff spot for all but one game since Aug. 14, but with him getting a day off Saturday, Bregman will get a chance to hit atop the order for the second time this season.

Analysis: 

Rafael Devers
Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Crushes first homer of September on Friday
Rafael Devers, 3B, BOS
9/22/2017
News: Devers went 2-for-4 with a double and a three-run homer Friday against the Reds.

Devers smashed his ninth homer of the season as part of a four-run fourth inning that helped deliver the Red Sox a come-from-behind victory. After raking throughout the months of July and August, he's hit just a single homer this month although he's still batting over .300 in September.

Analysis: 

Nicholas Castellanos
Tigers' Nick Castellanos: Hits 26th blast of 2017 on Friday
Nicholas Castellanos, 3B, DET
9/22/2017
News: Castellanos went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Twins.

Castellanos crushed his 26th bomb of the season to open the scoring for the Tigers in the second inning of the game they'd go on to lose. He now has six homers in a month in which he's been tearing the cover off the ball, and in the process, he's likely helping many fantasy teams to advance through the playoffs.

Adrian Beltre
Rangers' Adrian Beltre: Homers in win over Seattle
Adrian Beltre, 3B, TEX
9/22/2017
News: Beltre went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over Seattle.

The veteran has heated up over his past four games going 7-for-16 with a homer, three RBI and three runs. Beltre has missed a lot of time this season, but amazingly, his .929 OPS would stand as his highest mark since his monster 2004 campaign.
