Matt Holliday:  1/3 with his 9th HR while hitting .269.  Got to love the body of work of Holliday this season who is showing he is not done yet being a top OF 3.  His swing is tailor-made for his home park and that alone will keep him in a daily lineup the rest of 2017.

C.C. Sabathia:  6.1 IP 6 H 2 ER 3 BB 9 K with an ERA of 4.42.  You get flashes of the old ace C.C. once in awhile but the other three times out of four he goes out, the numbers can be very scary.

Dellin Betances:  scoreless 1.1 IP for his fifth save with an ERA of 0.52.  Betances has dominated since becoming the Yankee closer and so his struggles finishing games last season can now be fully blamed on fatigue and not mental struggles.

Shin-Soo Choo:  1/4 with his 5th HR while hitting .255.  Like with Matt Holliday, Shin-Soo Choo is showing he can still be of service.  Batting leadoff is a nice bonus as well.

Jose Bautista:  1/4 with his 9th HR while hitting .236.  Bautista's home run swing has been in fine working order the last three weeks and he can carry your team for awhile in that area when the going is good.  Still I would rather have Choo or Holliday.

Marco Estrada:  6 IP 4 H 1 ER 1 BB 8 K with an ERA of 3.15.  Estrada is the new Matt Cain, as the former used to always beat the BABIP curve year after year.  Don't know how he does it but he does it.

Michael Fulmer:  8 IP 9 H 3 ER 1 BB 4 K with an ERA of 2.65.  We may have to add Fulmer to the Cain-Estrada slayers of BABIP.  Fulmer's advanced metrics continually scream out "regression" but he has escaped thus far.

Tyler Danish:  5 IP 3 H 0 ER 6 BB 6 K with an ERA of 0.00.  Effectively wild in his first start.  The 22-year-old former second-round pick had all of a 4.53 K/9 at Triple-A before reporting for MLB duty.  No thanks.

Colby Rasmus:  1/2 with his 6th HR while hitting .254.  Nope I still don't care about him

Brian Dozier:  1/3 with his 7th HR while hitting .255.  At least Dozier has raised his average a bit lately to help overcome the horrid power.  NEVER PAY FOR CAREER YEARS.

Brian Johnson:  9 IP 5 H 0 ER 0 BB 8 K with an ERA of 2.57.  Just going out on a limb in predicting that Johnson will be the biggest pickup in fantasy baseball the next 24 hours.  Had a 2.82 ERA at Triple-A prior to his promotion.  Decent power arm who has a chance to stick around.
