  • TEX Right Fielder #53
    Rangers activated OF Adolis García from the 10-day injured list.
    The Rangers were initially targeting a return to the lineup over the weekend for García, but he felt so good after Monday’s live batting practice session that they went ahead and activated him. The 30-year-old slugger is starting in right field and batting sixth for the Rangers against Kutter Crawford and the Red Sox on Monday evening in Arlington.
  • ATL Third Baseman #27
    Austin Riley went 2-for-3 with a homer and four RBI as the Braves held off the Nationals 9-6 on Friday.
    Riley had two sac flies to go along with his two-run homer. He’s up to 96 RBI, putting him in strong position to become the fourth Braves player with 100 RBI on the season. Matt Olsen (132), Ozzie Albies (104) and Ronald Acuña Jr. (101) are already there. Marcell Ozuna, with 90, has an outside chance of reaching the mark, too.
  • ATL Relief Pitcher #26
    Raisel Iglesias held on to a three-run lead Friday against the Nationals for his first save since Sept. 10.
    He gave up a pair of singles, but he retired the other three batters he faced. Iglesias had blown his last two save chances, though he ended up with the win in both of those games anyway. He’s 30-for-34 saving games on the season.
  • WAS Starting Pitcher #46
    Patrick Corbin was tagged for five runs in 4 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Braves.
    Corbin has held his own for the most part this year, but his stuff just doesn’t translate against a lineup like Atlanta’s. He managed just one strikeout tonight, and he gave up homers to Ronald Acuña Jr. and Austin Riley in falling to 10-14 with a 5.13 ERA. He’s given up 32 homers on the season, which is fourth on the Nationals’ all-time list behind Josiah Gray’s 38 last year, Corbin’s own 37 in 2021 and Trevor Williams’ 34 this season.
  • ATL Right Fielder #13
    Ronald Acuña Jr. hit his 40th homer, doubled, walked and scored three times versus the Nationals on Friday.
    The homer made Acuña the charter member of the 40/50 club. He’s probably going to end up at 40/70, as he needs just two more stolen bases. But as cool as that is, it’s worth remembering that the steals are pretty much the smallest part of his value. He leads the NL in OBP, OPS, hits, total bases and runs scored, along with the steals. He’d have a strong MVP case if he had never attempted a single stolen base this year.
  • PHI Catcher #10
    J.T. Realmuto hit a three-run homer Friday as the Phillies defeated the Mets 5-4 in 10 innings.
    Alec Bohm had the game-winning hit in the 10th. Realmuto’s homer was his 20th, making this the fourth time he’s reached the milestone in his career. Even in a down year, he’s been one of the game’s top catchers, both in reality and in fantasy.
  • PHI Starting Pitcher #99
    Taijuan Walker had a fine outing against his former team Friday, allowing two runs over six innings against the Mets.
    Walker left with a one-run lead, but it didn’t hold up. Technically, it’s his first quality start since July 31, though he had barely missed a few times since then. He’ll take a 15-5 record and a 4.35 ERA into his final start versus the Pirates.
  • PHI Relief Pitcher #31
    Craig Kimbrel took a blown save against the Mets after allowing a solo homer in the ninth Friday.
    The Phillies went on to win in 10th, with Serathony Domínguez getting credit with the victory after a scoreless top of the inning. The homer given up to Brett Baty was the ninth allowed by Kimbrel, matching his career high. He’s been quite good apart from the homers, but he’s definitely sharing the closer’s role in Philly at this point.
  • NYM Third Baseman #22
    Brett Baty hit a game-tying homer off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth Friday before the Mets went on to lose to the Phillies in 10.
    Baty’s homer was crushed, leaving his bat at 110 mph and traveling 432 feet. He also had a pair of well-hit groundouts tonight. There’s still progress to be made here, but in spite of his disappointing campaign, he’s probably yet on his way to becoming an above average regular.
  • PIT Third Baseman #19
    Jared Triolo finished 2-for-3 with a homer and two walks as the Pirates topped the Reds 7-5 on Friday.
    Triolo is 7-for-17 with two homers, two doubles and five walks since Sept. 17, which should give him a clear edge over some of the other options at second base for playing time the rest of the way. Up to .273/.364/.360 in 173 PA, he’s helping his chances of being considered for a spot on next year’s Opening Day roster.
  • PIT Relief Pitcher #51
    David Bednar protected a two-run lead in the ninth for a save Friday against the Reds.
    Bednar walked a pair and had another runner reach on a fielder’s choice, but the Reds couldn’t get a hit off him. He’s now 37-for-40 saving games this year. He could have been a difference maker if a contender had been able to pry him away at the deadline.
