    AL Player Analysis - September 29, 2017

    Carlos Carrasco (SP-CLE) - Granted it was against a Twins team that was resting a large number of regulars after having clinched a Wild Card spot the previous day, but Carrasco came up big on Thursday. The righty allowed six...

    Jake Arrieta (SP-CHC) - A hamstring injury had limited Arrieta to just 2.1 innings of work since August 29, but he took the hill against a tough Brewers team Thursday and held them to just one run on five hits...

    Robbie Ray (SP-ARI) - When you strike out nine, and walk a pair, that can tend to elevate your pitch count, and that was what happened to Ray on Thursday. The lefty fanned nine Mets over five innings while allowing...

    Mike Fiers (SP-HOU) - Fiers dropped to 7-8 on the year Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Fiers allowed three runs (two earned) over 5.1 innings with an impressive seven strikeouts to two walks. Once again, home runs were the big issue,...

    Dexter Fowler (OF-STL) - Fowler continued his strong play since returning from a wrist injury, knocking a double and home run while driving in five on Thursday. Settled into the cleanup spot, at least for now, Fowler is batting .251/.349/.479...

    Andrew Moore (SP-SEA) - Moore's MLB debut Thursday was an unqualified success, as the 23-year-old right-hander held the Tigers to three runs on six hits over seven solid innings with no walks and four strikeouts. Moore posted sub-9.0 K/9's at...

    Avisail Garcia (OF-CHW) - If All-Star selections were made today, I'd have to think Garcia would be the White Sox lone representative. The best Chicago Garcia singled and hit a three-run homer in four at-bats against Jake Odorizzi and the...

    Justin Smoak (1B-TOR) - I'm still not sure Smoak is a top-10 first baseman, though after going 3-for-5 with his 12th homer and four RBI (34 now) on Monday, he probably is. The former elite prospect and Rangers/Mariners flame-out is...
