White Sox's Matt Davidson: Drives in three to help top Royals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/22/2017) Davidson went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run and three RBI during Friday's win over Kansas City.

Davidson entered Friday with a crippling .136/.183/.258 slash line through 18 September games, so he's been off the fantasy radar of late. Friday's outburst has him up to 26 homers and 67 RBI for the season, so he was moving the needle before his recent funk. It's definitely worth noting that Davidson's slump correlates with his return from a stint on the disabled list due to a wrist injury, which could explain his struggles.


Astros' Carlos Beltran: Out of Friday's lineup

(9/22/2017) Beltran is not in the lineup Friday against the Angels.

Beltran has started three of Houston's last four games. In that time he's gone 0-for-11 at the dish, bringing his line down to .189/.231/.297 for the month of September. Evan Gattis will get the nod to start at the DH spot Friday night while Beltran gets the night off.


Blue Jays' Kendrys Morales: Sitting out Friday

(9/22/2017) Morales is out of the lineup for Friday's matchup against the Yankees, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Miguel Montero will be used as Toronto's DH in place of Morales on Friday night. Over his last 10 games Morales has slashed .306/.342/.361 and driven in three runs while scoring once.


White Sox's Matt Davidson: Back in action Friday

(9/22/2017) Davidson (illness) is in the lineup Friday against the Royals.

Davidson was scratched from Thursday's lineup, but is set to return for Friday's series opener against Kansas City. Davidson has struggled quite a bit over the month of September. Since the start of the month he's hit just .136/.183/.258 over 18 games, dropping his batting average from .233 to .219 in that time.


Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Out of Friday's lineup

(9/22/2017) Trumbo is not in the lineup Friday against the Rays.

Over the last three games, Trumbo has gone 0-for-9 and struck out five times across 10 plate appearances. He'll head to the bench Friday night while Pedro Alvarez serves as Baltimore's designated hitter and hits eighth.


Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez: Sitting out against Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/22/2017) Ramirez is out of the lineup Friday against the Reds, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

With the Red Sox playing in a National League ballpark, they won't be able to use a designated hitter. As a result, Ramirez will head to the bench. Boston could opt to use Ramirez at first base instead of Mitch Moreland at some point over the weekend. However, if they choose to keep Ramirez out of the lineup, he'd likely return to the DH spot Monday against the Blue Jays.


Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Goes deep again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/22/2017) Cruz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.

The veteran slugger snapped the would-be shutout with a 375-foot shot to right in the seventh, his second round tripper in as many games. Cruz hasn't quite been able to maintain the torrid pace he established in August (.341/.413/.747 line), but he boasts a .507 wOBA, .458 ISO and 52.9 percent hard contact rate over the 30 plate appearances spanning his last seven games.


Indians' Edwin Encarnacion: Connects for 37th home run
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/21/2017) Encarnacion went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Angels.

The 34-year-old has hit safely in all but two of his starts so far in September. He's cleared 30 homers for the sixth straight season and set a new career high with 101 walks, but his contributions have been overshadowed by other standout offensive performances this season. It's possible Encarnacion falls to the third round in a lot of drafts next spring.

Willy Garcia replaced him in the lineup, batting seventh and serving as the White Sox's designated hitter against lefty Dallas Keuchel and the Astros. His status for Friday's series opener against the Royals remains up in the air.
