9/26:New York Mets outfielder Michael Conforto hit his 28th home run on Wednesday to help lead his team to victory. Conforto took Atlanta Braves reliever Kyle Wright deep in the eighth inning to provide Jacob deGrom with enough run support to earn a crucial 10th win on the mound. In addition to helping deGrom, Conforto has really been hitting well down the stretch. He is 6-for-13 in his last three games with a home run and five RBI while raising his batting average to a respectable .246. Mets fans and fantasy owners can only hope that this late-season resurgence is a sign of what's to come in 2019.--Adam Young - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
9/26:New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom capped off one of the most impressive pitching campaigns in recent history on Wednesday against the Atlanta Braves. DeGrom threw eight shutout innings, allowing just two hits and zero walks to go along with 10 strikeouts. The Mets ace finished the season with 29 straight starts allowing three runs or less. DeGrom allowed more than three runs just once all year and will end his remarkable 2018 season with a 10-9 record and 1.70 ERA.--Adam Young - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
9/26:Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier (foot) suffered a hairline fracture in his right foot on Wednesday after fouling a ball off of it. It's a fitting way for his disastrous 2018 season to end. He was hitless in two plate appearances before the injury on Wednesday. Kiermaier played in just 87 games this year due to injuries and hit a brutal .218/.281/.372 with seven home runs, 44 runs scored, 28 RBI and 10 stolen bases. His aggressive nature of play in the outfield and on the base paths leaves him vulnerable to injuries, and he hasn't played in over 100 games in a season since 2016. It's easy to see his fantasy stock sink even further in 2019, although he could be a late-round value pick if he manages to stay healthy.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Tampa Bay Times - Marc Topkin
9/26:Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Mike Fiers will start against the Angels on Friday, which would line him up to make the start in the wild-card game against the Yankees next Wednesday. Fiers has had a solid season overall, but he's been much better after he went from Detroit to Oakland. In nine starts for the A's, Fiers is 5-1 with a 2.90 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 8.9 K/9. He'll be a great option in fantasy this Friday, but the same can't be said about next week if he starts against the Yanks, especially if it's in the Bronx. Fiers has been much more hittable (4.07 ERA, 1.16 WHIP) on the road that at home (2.81 ERA, 1.16 WHIP).--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Jane Lee
9/26:Chicago White Sox catcher Kevan Smith (ankle) will have offseason surgery on his ankle. Smith hit .288/.343/.362 with two home runs and 19 RBI in only 163 at-bats this season as a backup for the White Sox. He won't have any fantasy appeal heading into the 2019 season.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
9/26:Washington Nationals starting pitcher Kyle McGowin (finger) left his start on Wednesday against the Marlins with a blister on his right middle finger. It's something he had dealt with this summer. McGowin allowed one hit and no runs while walking three and fanning four in four innings before leaving the game. It was a decent start minus the blister injury, but it's unlikely we'll see him again before the season finale on Sunday.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MASN Sports - Mark Zuckerman
9/26:Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman (back) left the game early on Wednesday with a tight back, but he's hoping to play on Friday. Zimmerman had a run scored and a walk in his lone plate appearance on Wednesday before departing. While the veteran still has a bit of power in his lumber (13 home runs), he doesn't do much else to be relevant in mixed leagues anymore, and he's no longer an everyday player. Don't count on him playing much in the final weekend of the season.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MASN Sports - Mark Zuckerman
9/26:Tampa Bay Rays infielder Matt Duffy (quadriceps) left the game early on Wednesday with right quadriceps tightness. He is considered day-to-day. Duffy had a walk and a run scored in one plate appearance on Wednesday before leaving. He should be able to make a return for the final weekend of the season. Although he lacks power (four homers, 44 RBI), Duffy has provided those in deeper leagues with position versatility and a strong average (.294) and some speed (12 steals).--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
9/26:Minnesota Twins pitcher Kohl Stewart will be shut down for the year after throwing a combined 145 1/3 innings this year. Stewart had just 82 innings thrown in 2017. The 23-year-old performed well in his first big league action, going 2-1 with a 3.68 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 5.9 K/9 over eight outings (four starts). He should go into spring training competing for a rotation spot next year. However, his lack of strikeout upside should keep his ownership to deep mixed and AL-only leagues if he wins a spot.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: St. Paul Pioneer Press - Mike Berardino
9/26:Free-agent relief pitcher Trevor Rosenthal (elbow) announced on Twitter that he will hold a workout for interested teams on Wednesday, Oct. 3, in Irvine, Calif. Rosenthal had a 3.40 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, career-high 14.3 K/9 and 11 saves for the Cardinals last year before he needed Tommy John surgery in August. If he's fully healthy, some team will likely give him a shot at the back end of their bullpen in 2019.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Twitter
9/26:Chicago Cubs second baseman/outfielder Ben Zobrist will rest Wednesday versus the Pirates. Outfielder Ian Happ will draw the start in right field and bat fifth. Happ will face Ivan Nova and he is worth a dart throw in DFS. Zobrist should return to the lineup on Thursday after getting a day of rest on Wednesday.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Tribune
9/26:Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that third baseman Kris Bryant (wrist) is sore after being hit by a pitch on Tuesday, but his wrist isn't as swollen as the team thought. Bryant is out on Wednesday and could miss another game or two, but he should be able to return this weekend and into the postseason. Bryant's season has been ruined mainly by a shoulder injury during the summer, limiting him to just 12 home runs and 49 RBI in 98 games. The Cubs can only hope he'll be his usual self in October baseball.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Chicago - Jesse Rogers
9/26:Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson (hand) has been diagnosed with a partially torn ligament in his left hand. He will undergo treatment in Atlanta for the rest of the week and then be re-evaluated next week before the start of the playoffs. Swanson injured himself on a swing in the game Tuesday. There's a chance that he won't be available at all in the postseason, which would be a big blow to Atlanta up the middle. Charlie Culberson and Johan Camargo are the best options to replace him at the 6 for however long he'll be out.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Mark Bowman
9/26:Cincinnati Reds pitcher Sal Romano could start on Sunday against the Pirates in the regular season finale if he's not used in relief on Friday. Romano had a few decent starts here and there in 2018, but he was too erratic mostly for those to rely on him in mixed leagues. The right-hander is 8-11 with a 5.36 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and mediocre 6.7 K/9 over 37 outings (24 starts). He also hasn't started a game since Aug. 21, making him more unattractive if he gets the nod on Sunday.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Athletic - C. Trent Rosecrans
9/26:New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway said infielder Wilmer Flores (knees) has "some arthritis buildup" in his knees. The injury isn't believed to be serious and wouldn't have kept Flores out for more than 10 days if it weren't the end of the regular season. Even on a bad team, Flores didn't see regular playing time and hit .267/.319/.417 with only 11 home runs and 51 RBI in 386 at-bats. That doesn't bode well for him heading into the 2019 season.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Newsday - Tim Healey
