FBT: Patrick Wisdom waiver heater, Albert Pujols gets to 700, Aaron Judge still in limbo, more

Good Monday everyone! This past weekend in baseball was all about history – and we’ve been chasing it with two of the best hitters ever – one of all time, and the other will eventually be discussed in the same light. Albert Pujols entered Friday in the pursuit of immortality – hoping to hit his 700th home run. He needed two and got them immediately on Friday with a double dong! Pujols became only the fourth player in MLB history to hit 700 or more home runs. And it was truly amazing to watch the crowd explode as opposing coach Dave Roberts tried to contain his excitement about what would go down in history as one of the most memorable moments in baseball history.

Aaron Judge, who is also chasing a historic season, is still stuck on his 60th home run. He has now gone four games without one, including Sunday rain. Does he push a little? May be. But Judge is one home run away from the Yankees record, and it’s only a matter of time before he gets there.

We’ll be continuing with some more this weekend, but first make sure you’re all up to date on everything that’s going on at Scott White is still putting together the weekly content you need as we head into the final days of the season. You can find him sleeping strikers for the coming week here. And these attackers stood out:

Gunnar Henderson: “Henderson’s roster ratio has finally started to rise to a more suitable level, but we’re now at a point where a rookie should basically start, especially with the Orioles being one of eight teams with 10 games in the Finals. credit period”.

Luis Rengifo: Rengifo has recently had a couple of games with two homers and is hitting .299 for September, so just as a hot-handed game, he’s recommended. But the Angels also have second-best matches this week. , including four against left-handers, against whom he is hitting .333 with .954 OPS.”

And you can also find Scott’s sleep jugs here. And here are some of the standouts:

Hunter Green: “Green was direct. Fire in his first two starts he came back with a strained shoulder and is now lining up to face the Pirates and Cubs in the final week of the season. He’s a particularly good choice if you want to play catch-up on the outs.”

Cody Morris: The Guardians have made the curious decision to have Morris’ introduction to the Majors primarily serve as a rehab assignment for a sprained shoulder, but so far so good, even seeing him stretch to over five innings in the last two. The Rays and Royals are gearing up for some exciting end-of-year games, especially with Morris’ wide availability.”

Wisdom breaks the stretch

Patrick Wisdom took the sock and boot on Sunday as he hit his 25th home run and eighth stolen base. He now has three homers in his last five games. Wisdom has nine games left and is at 70% of the roster.

Rejection of wire jugs for consideration

José Quintana has only allowed two earned runs in his last four starts. He had 6 2/3 closed innings with six strikeouts and just five hits (no walks) in his last start. He now has a 2.14 ERA in his 10 starts with the Cardinals, along with the following numbers: 1.13 WHIP, 3.58 xFIP, 50% ball frequency, 9.3% strike frequency.

Quintana is 67% in the starting XI against the Pirates in the last two matches.

John Gray only allowed one hit on the Guardians and finished with five one-shots (unearned). He passed one batter, hit another and dropped his ERA to 3.64 with a 1.11 WHIP. He also has 126 strikeouts from 116 1/3 innings. Gray is 65% ready for his last two starts.

Fantasy News, Trauma and Notes

For a full account of every injury, news and more, make sure you’re connected to the Fantasy Baseball Today podcast, where Frank, Scott and Chris go over every player note in depth. For the CliffsNotes version, we’ll summarize the most important news and notes you need to know right here:

  • First, the good news for Tampa: Tyler Glasnow is due to start Wednesday in Cleveland but will be limited to about 45 fields.
  • Bad news: Shane Baz will undergo Tommy John surgery and will not compete in the 2023 season.
  • Spencer Strider drove the IL with an oblique deformity to the left.
  • Julio Rodriguez went to IL with a lower back strain.
  • Louis Robert went to IL with a sprained left wrist. He won’t be playing again in 2022, such a disappointing season.
  • Dustin May went to IL with a stiff lower back.
  • Craig Kimbrel was pulled from a closer role on Friday. Chris Martin, Evan Phillips and Brousdar Gratherol could play their part.
  • On Tuesday, Byron Buxton will undergo season-ending arthroscopic knee surgery.
  • Luis Castillo signed a five-year, $108 million extension with the Mariners. He has a 3.35 ERA in 10 starts with Seattle. Oddly enough, he has been touched up by the Royals and Fives in his last two matches.
  • DJ LeMahieu is still unable to play due to a toe injury and it is unclear if he will be able to return this season.
  • Nick Castellanos will not need rehab and is expected to return sometime between Tuesday and Thursday. I assume we stay away?
  • Jorge Polanco is still having problems with his left knee and may not return this season.
  • Drew Smiley will not start the upcoming series against the Phillies. He is dealing with fatigue in his left shoulder.
  • Chris Bryant confirmed on Saturday that he will not be returning this season. In his first season with the Rockies, he only played 42 games.
  • Brandon Lowe is out of action for the remainder of the season due to back pain.
  • Jesse Winker was moved on Sunday with a bruised left wrist.
  • Edward Cabrera pulled out of Sunday’s start with a slight ankle sprain. In any case, he would have only one start left, so I think he can be thrown out.
  • Tyler Male is officially out of action for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
  • Mackenzie Gore will start rehab again on Triple-A Monday. He got up to 65 pitches in his previous outing, but it looks like he won’t matter anymore this season.
  • Dane Dunning will undergo arthroscopic hip surgery at the end of the season.
  • Madison Bumgarner will no longer pitch for the Dbacks this season.
