Jorge Polanco (MIN) - Jorge Polanco hit his 6th homerun of the year against the Tigers in the 9th inning on Monday. Polanco finished the day going 2-for-5 and is now slashing .289/.339/.431 with 6 HR, 33 RBI, 31 RBI in 65 games. He does have 4 steals, but after getting caught stealing in Monday's game, he also had 5 caught stealing. Polanco would be well on his way to a strong season if he hadn't been suspended for the first 80 games of this year and will be a middle infielder to watch in the mid-rounds next year.
Nick Castellanos (DET) - Nick Castellanos had another big night on Monday as he went 3-for-4 with a double and run scored. On the season, he's hitting .296/.354/.491 with 21 HR, 81 RBI and 79 runs scored. Castellanos has forever "under-performed" in the HR/FB rate stat, especially when you consider his hard hit rate of 47.7% this year. With just a couple weeks left, it's unlikely he will match his 26 home runs from 2017 and even that number seemed low in the pre-season. The best explanation for this phenomenon has to do with his batted ball profile which has seen a gradual increase to his line drive rate and sharp decrease in his fly ball rate over the last couple of seasons.
Ryan Borucki (TOR) - Blue Jays started Ryan Borucki tossed an exceptional game on Monday, twirling 8 scoreless innings while striking out 7, giving up 3 hits and walking just 1. Borucki has emerged out of nowhere this season and has been a serviceable starter with a 3.86 ERA. Unfortunately, his 1.33 WHIP and 4.57 xFIP paint a better picture of the type of pitcher he has actually been this season. With just a 15% strikeout rate, it's unlikely he will provide much fantasy value.
Eddie Rosario (MIN) - Eddie Rosario was forced to leave Monday's game with an injured right quad, the same one that forced him to miss time earlier this year. The most recent injury is being described as "mild to moderate", so with just a couple weeks left in the season, there's a good chance that he will be done for the year. Rosario finishes the season with 24 home runs, 77 RBI, 87 runs scored, 8 stolen bases and a slash line of .288/.323/.479.
Michael Fulmer (DET) - Michael Fulmer was diagnosed with a torn meniscus on Monday and will likely miss the rest of the regular season. It's a disappointing end to an even more disappointing season for Michael Fulmer. The Tigers' right hander finishes the season with a 4.69 ERA, 20% strikeout rate and 8% walk rate. He was pretty unlucky with a 68% strand rate , but with a career mark of 70%, it's difficult to give much merit to the idea that he's due for favorable regression.
