8 hours agoNew York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres is having a fantastic postseason thus far and will take a five-game playoff hitting streak into Game 3. Torres is 9-for-22 (.409) with two home runs, four doubles, six runs scored and nine runs batted in but will have a tough test in Game 3. Torres and Co. will go up against the Astros starter Gerrit Cole, who has not lost since May 22. While the matchup is tough, Torres will be one of the safer plays in fantasy among Yankees hitters for Game 3 of the ALCS.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Yankees

8 hours agoNew York Yankees first baseman D.J. LeMahieu will be tasked with sparking the offense against Gerrit Cole and the Astros in Game 3. LeMahieu is enjoying a career season and has thrived hitting at Yankee Stadium. The 31-year-old is hitting .444 in the postseason at home and slashed .338/.392/.585 in 71 regular season games. There are few pitchers in the game that have been hotter than Cole at present but LeMahieu has the home splits to produce in Game 3.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Yankees

8 hours agoHouston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa will start and hit seventh against the Yankees in Game of the ALCS. Correa was the hero of Game 2, going 2-for-5 with a home run and an extra-innings RBI double to pick up the win for the Astros. It has been a quiet postseason overall for Correa, a player who has battled injuries multiple times this season. He could be in line, however, to do more damage in Game 3 against right-handed starter Luis Severino. Correa posted a .577 slugging percentage this season against right-handed pitching and he has enjoyed past success against Severino.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros
Share:
8 hours agoNew York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks is getting a rare postseason start and will hit ninth against the Astros and Gerrit Cole in Game 3. Hicks has seen only one at-bat this postseason as teammate Giancarlo Stanton heads to the bench. The move can certainly be described as surprising as Hicks is slashing a dismal .221/.299/.363 at home this season. Furthermore, he is hitting only .218 against right-handed pitching through 142 plate appearances. The Yankees are hoping Hicks provides some left-handed pop from the bottom of their order.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Yankees
Share:
8 hours agoHouston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has hits in all seven of the teams playoff games this season heading into Game 3. Altuve has an excellent track record of postseason success and it is on full display once again this season. The 29-year-old is 10-for-27 (.370) with two home runs and three doubles, four runs scored and five runs batted in. Altuve's resurgent second half of the season has carried into the playoffs and will be a top fantasy option among Astros hitters for Game 3.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros
Share:
9 hours agoNew York Yankees starter Luis Severino will take the ball in Game 3 against the Astros in Yankee Stadium. Severino tossed four spotless innings in the ALDS and his stuff looked electric. Severino has missed most of the season due to injury and is not expected to pitch deep into the game. The talented starter pitched against the Astros twice in the 2017 playoffs, both games ending in Astros wins. Severino should feel comfortable out of the gate, however, going 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA pitching at home in 2018.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Yankees
Share:
9 hours agoHouston Astros starter Gerrit Cole will take his historic run on the mound into Yankee Stadium for Game 3 of the ALCS. Cole set a major league record with 25 strikeouts in the ALDS and has 10-plus strikeouts in 11 straight starts. Cole has not lost since May 22 and is 18-0 during that span. The right-handed hurler has been close to unbeatable, posting 10 or more K's in 24 of his 35 starts, including the playoffs, this season. When Cole is on the mound, it is a must-win situation for the Astros.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros
Share:
9 hours agoNew York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton will ride the bench to start Game 3 against Gerrit Cole and the Houston Astros. Stanton is 2-for-4 in the series thus far but the Yankees have opted to start Aaron Hicks in his place. It has been a lost season for the slugger but Stanton has come up with some big home runs in the postseason thus far. Even more curious, Stanton is slashing .300/.471/.800 in 10 career at-bats against Cole with one home run and two doubles. Stanton will represent a major threat off the bench in Game 3.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Yankees
Share:
3 days agoWashington Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton will start and hit second against the Cardinals and Adam Wainwright in Game 2. It has been a struggle offensively for Eaton in the postseason but tripled in the Nationals Game 1 win. He is hitting only .167 in the playoffs this season but has an intriguing matchup in Game 2 against Wainwright. It is a small sample size, but Eaton is 6-for-11 (.545) lifetime against the Cardinals right-handed starter, including 3-for-8 with one home run this season. Eaton, at the very least, can be expected to square up a few balls in Game 2.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Washington Nationals
Share:
3 days agoSt. Louis Cardinals outfielder Marcell Ozuna will hit cleanup against the Nationals Max Scherzer in Game 2 of the NLCS. Ozuna had a five-game postseason hitting streak snapped in Game 1 but has enjoyed quality success lifetime against Scherzer. Ozuna is 10-for-36 (.278) with two home runs in his career against the Nationals hurler and the Cardinals offense will have to wake up after being held to one hit in Game 1. For the playoff thus far, Ozuna is posting a .720 slugging percentage with two home runs and three doubles.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: St. Louis Cardinals
Share:
3 days agoWashington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman will get the start and hit sixth against the Cardinals and Adam Wainwright in Game 2 of the NLCS. Zimmerman is on a nice little streak at the plate and now will have a favorable matchup against Wainwright. The veteran slugger is 5-for-13 over his last three games with one double, one home run and three runs batted in. He also is 12-for-34 (.353) with two home runs lifetime against Wainwright. The Nationals are looking to steal another game on the road from St. Louis and Zimmerman has sneaky fantasy appeal for Game 2.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Washington Nationals
Share:
3 days agoSt. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt will start and hit third in Game 2 of the NLCS. The slugger went 0-for-4 in Game 1 but is slashing .360/.407/.760 with two home runs and four doubles through 25 postseason at-bats. He will have a tough matchup, however, against the Nationals Max Scherzer in Game 2. In 25 career at-bats against Scherzer, Goldschmidt has only two hits and 14 strikeouts. The Cardinals struggled to generate offense to open the series and Goldschmidt will be a risky fantasy option in Game 2.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: St. Louis Cardinals
Share:
4 days agoNew York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will start in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Astros on Saturday. Left-hander James Paxton will go in Game 2 on Sunday and Luis Severino will toe the rubber in Game 3 on Tuesday when the series shifts to New York. Tanaka was up and down in 2019, going 11-9 with a 4.45 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 149 strikeouts in 182 innings over his 31 starts and one relief appearance in the regular season. Keeping the ball in the ballpark will be key for his success against the hot-hitting Astros. The Japanese right-hander was solid in his ALDS starts against the Twins, giving up one run while walking one and striking out seven in five innings for the victory. He'll be opposing Astros starter Zack Greinke in Game 1.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: USA TODAY Sports - Bob Nightengale
Share:
4 days agoWashington Nationals relief pitcher Daniel Hudson was placed on the postseason paternity list on Friday. As a result, Wander Suero will be on the team's roster to start the National League Championship Series against the Cardinals. Hudson could miss anywhere from one to three games in this series. The right-hander had been serving as the Nats closer of late, so this could have a profound effect on the late innings early in the series. The most likely direction Washington goes in is to use left-hander Sean Doolittle for any save chances in the ninth inning while Hudson is away. The Nationals bullpen was one of the most shaky in the National League all season, though, so this is bad news.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Mark Feinsand
Share:
4 days agoWashington Nationals outfielder Victor Robles (hamstring) and catcher Kurt Suzuki (head, wrist) are not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the National League Championship Series against the Cardinals on Friday. Michael A. Taylor will continue to man center field and bat seventh, while Yan Gomes is behind the plate and hitting eighth against Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas. Both Taylor and Gomes are known more for their defense than their hitting, so both will be deep DFS sleeper picks for the lone playoff game on Friday night.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Baseball Press
