  • BAL Starting Pitcher #68
    Wells gave up 10 hits and walked nine batters in nine innings over his final three starts back in July before getting sent down to the minors with arm fatigue. His overall body of work is still very strong this season with a 3.80 ERA in 21 games for the Orioles while posting a 111/33 K/BB ratio. Wells has been pitching out of the bullpen during his latest stint at Triple-A which featured seven appearances, all one inning or less. He is expected to fill in as bullpen relief down the stretch.
  • NYY Relief Pitcher #58
    The lefty has made 63 appearances for the Yankees this season but has been dormant since last Thursday, September 14. Yankees manager Aaron Boone informed reporters that he’s been dealing with triceps issues and now we see the correlating move to the IL. While Peralta is out, the Yankees will test out Yoendrys Gómez who was called up from Double-A.
  • NYY Starting Pitcher #89
    The 23-year-old Venezuelan will be skipping Triple-A ahead of his major-league debut. Gómez has spent the entire season at Double-A, racking up 78 strikeouts in 65 1/3 innings with a 3.86 ERA across 19 games started. This move was made in association with LHP Wandy Peralta hitting the 15-day IL. Gómez has pitched three or fewer innings in all but seven of his starts this season so he’s likely a mid-relief option.
  • COL Third Baseman #44
    Montero got the day off on Wednesday and the team was off on Thursday as they traveled from San Diego to Chicago. He will slot back into the lineup Friday, batting eighth as the designated hitter. Montero is slashing just .242/.290/.399 this season in 76 games played. Other notable changes to the Rockies’ lineup include Elias Diaz returning after a day off, batting sixth on Friday.
  • ATL Starting Pitcher #64
    Vines was called up in association with Max Fried hitting the 15-day IL as he is dealing with a blister issue. Vines has made three appearances for the Braves this season, posting a 3.27 ERA with an 8/2 K/BB ratio in 11 innings. The 25-year-old was some strikeout appeal for fantasy gamers as he’s posted at least five Ks in seven of his 10 starts this season, across all levels. He’s also coming off a six-inning relief appearance, not allowing any earned runs while striking out three batters.
  • ATL Starting Pitcher #54
    Fried got the win on Thursday against the Nationals, giving up one earned run while striking out seven batters across six innings of work. It was a strong outing for Fried who has been limited to just 14 starts this season due to injury. More health concerns popped up after the game when he explained the blister issue he experienced in the later stages of his outing. The Braves will skip his final two starts of the season to allow his finger to hopefully heal before the postseason.
  • CHC First Baseman #74
    Young was recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday and made an immediate impact with a pinch-hit triple that drove in a run, that evening against the Pirates. He’s stationed first base in 13 of his previous 14 games with the Cubs this season but will be the designated hitter on Friday. The remainder of the Cubs lineup is familiar while Miles Mastrobuoni will play third base for a third straight game and Miguel Amaya will crouch behind the plate to receive pitches from Jameson Taillon.
  • WAS Relief Pitcher #63
    Doolittle will walk away after a brilliant 11-year MLB career in which he amassed 3.20 ERA in 463 relief appearances with 112 saves between stops with the Athletics, Nationals, Reds, and Mariners. He earned two All-Star selections along the way and was a big part of the Nationals’ World Series title in 2019. He’s struggled with injury in recent years, including surgery for a partially-torn UCL in his elbow last summer. He was unable to make it back to the Nationals this season after suffering a setback with his knee in June, but Doolittle said in his statement Friday that he’ll put a bow on his playing career with “gratitude and a full heart.”
  • MIL Starting Pitcher #26
    Making his sixth rehab appearance in September, Ashby would like to forget about his Thursday outing. Ashby walked the bases loaded and then walked another batter before getting removed from the game. He tossed 26 pitches with only nine of them going for strikes, getting two outs along the way. Ashby has now allowed nine earned runs over 1 1/3 innings in his last two rehab appearances.
  • MIA Relief Pitcher #31
    Brazoban suffered a hamstring injury on August 14th, landing him on the 15-day IL. Making his return on Thursday, he made a rehab appearance for the Marlins Triple-A affiliate. It went well as he entered the game in the fifth inning and tossed nine pitches on his way to posting a scoreless inning on the box score. Brazoban allowed one hit while striking out one batter. The 33-year-old has made 48 appearances for the Marlins this season with a 4.29 ERA and a 60/31 K/BB ratio over 56 2/3 innings.
