Yordan Álvarez went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Tuesday as the Astros defeated the Rangers.
On a night where he hit a 109.6 single and a 103.5 mph double, it's a shame that he was unable to drive anyone in. Nonetheless, he was driven in himself by a Jeremy Pena single in the top of the second. The 24-year-old slugger's .200 batting average through 45-at bats isn't an accurate representation of his skill set. If he can remain healthy, he should have a highly productive campaign.
Adolis Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.
With one man out and nobody on in the bottom of the second, Garcia connected on an 86 mph splitter from Jake Odorizzi and sent it 385 feet to left field, tying the game up at 1-1. The 29-year-old slugger has plenty of pop in his bat, but his subpar plate approach will continue to hold him back.
Aroldis Chapman preserved Yankees' 12-8 win over the Orioles on Tuesday night.
Aroldis Chapman struck out two over a ninth inning Tuesday against the Orioles. Chapman had some command issues walking two but securing the 12-8 win at Yankee stadium. The veteran closer hasn't allowed a run over 7 1/3 innings this season with 11 strikeouts and four saves.
Raisel Iglesias earned his fourth save of the season after striking out a pair of batters in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Guardians.
Iglesias should have had the night off -- the Angels led 4-0 to open the ninth inning -- but after Jimmy Herget let in a run on Jose Ramirez's one-out RBI double, the closer was called in from the pen to make sure no further drama was injected into the proceedings. He proceeded to strike out Franmil Reyes and Owen Miller to polish off the two-out save. Iglesias is now 4-for-4 in save chances while boasting a 1.17 ERA and 10/0 K/BB ratio over 7 2/3 innings.
Lourdes Gurriel Jr. was out of the Blue Jays' lineup on Tuesday due to hamstring soreness.
It's considered to be a minor issue and Gurriel was be available off the bench. He homered and doubled for a second straight game in Monday night's series opener against the visiting Red Sox.
Yoán Moncada (oblique) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend at Triple-A Charlotte.
Moncada has still been dealing with some issues on his left side while hitting, but is apparently close to embarking on a minor league rehab assignment. Barring any setbacks, it sounds like he could be back for the White Sox at some point early next month.
Luis Robert (groin) is expected to return to the White Sox' lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Royals.
With the start time for Wednesday's contest moved up due to freezing temperatures in Chicago, the White Sox have decided to push back Robert's return an additional day to avoid him playing in back-to-back games in less than 24 hours. Fantasy managers should expect him to be back out there in center field on Wednesday afternoon.
