VMart has woken up in the last few days -- he's 7-for-14 (.500) with three home runs, nine RBI and five walks. The home run was Martinez's 27th of the season.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Pulled with apparent hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/25/2016) Cruz was removed from Sunday's game against the Mariners in the top of the eighth inning with an apparent left wrist soreness, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Cruz hit a pair of solo home runs in his first three at-bats of the game to boost his total to 41 for the season, but he appeared to hurt his hand on the second of the two blasts. Seth Smith entered the game to pinch hit for Cruz, who will be listed as day-to-day heading into the Mariners' series with the Astros that begins Monday.

Royals' Kendrys Morales: Hits 30-homer mark in Saturday win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/25/2016) Morales went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, walk and two runs overall in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Tigers.

The veteran slugger hit the 30-homer mark for only the second time in his career and first time since 2009 with his eighth round-tripper of September. Morales also has a whopping 27 RBI during the month, propelling him to a second straight season with at least 90 runs driven in. Following Saturday's production, the 33-year-old is hitting .337 (28-for-83) in September, a tally that includes seven multi-hit efforts.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Blasts moonshot for homer in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/24/2016) Cruz went 2-for-4 with a double, a mammoth home run and two RBI in Saturday's loss to Minnesota.

The veteran launched one into the third deck -- estimated at 454 feet -- for his 39th homer, moving him up to sixth in MLB this season. Now that he spends most of his time as a designated hitter, perhaps the 36-year-old can continue put up elite production for a few more years to come as 40-year-old David Ortiz has.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Launches 22nd homer in Friday win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/24/2016) Alvarez went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning victory over the D-backs.

The veteran slugger broke the ice on a dismal offensive performance up to that point by taking reliever Enrique Burgos deep with a 407-foot shot to right in the eighth, kick-starting the Orioles' comeback. Despite the homer Friday and some modest success making hard contact during the month, Alvarez is struggling overall in September, as evidenced by his .195 average over 41 at-bats.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Blasts 38th homer in win at Twins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/24/2016) Cruz doubled, homered and drove in four runs Friday in a win at the Twins.

Cruz hit a two-run shot for his 38th homer this season. He has nine games left to get to 40 homers for the third consecutive year. He's also four RBI away from his second 100-RBI season.

Blue Jays' Edwin Encarnacion: On base three times in Friday blowout
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/23/2016) Encarnacion went 1-for-3 with an RBI walk, another base-on-balls and two runs in Friday's 9-0 victory over the Yankees.

The menacing slugger was pitched around in the second with the based jammed, which resulted in Kevin Pillar coming home on the bases-loaded walk. Encarnacion has now hit safely in seven of his last eight games, with three homers and eight RBI over that span.

Indians' Carlos Santana: Churns out four-RBI effort Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/23/2016) Santana went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and an RBI double in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Royals.

Santana's been enjoying the diluted pitching of September baseball, as he's having his best month, posting a .310/.451/.634 line with six homers and 17 RBI over 20 games. That's about as much average as you'll ever see him hit for, as Santana tends to hover in the .250 range (or worse), but he's still been plenty productive for fantasy owners. The 30-year-old has a career-high 34 homers already, and he's just two short of his career-high 85 RBI and one short of his career-high 84 runs.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Homers as pinch hitter in Game 1 Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9/22/2016) Martinez hit a three-run home run as a pinch hitter in Game 1 of the Tigers' doubleheader Thursday.

The blast off Michael Tonkin was V-Mart's 25th of the year. Concerns about his right knee, which had been plunked twice in three days as of Sunday, look to be alleviated. He's in the lineup as designated hitter for Game 2 of the twin bill Thursday night. Martinez boasts a .288/.347/.472 triple slash for 2016.
