Aaron Hill out of lineup Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Hill dislocated his pinkie finger on a slide at home plate late in Monday's game, but he remained in to finish the game. He has hit .244/.287/.367 with 10 home runs and 60 RBI in 501 at-bats.

File Miguel Montero's name away for 2015
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Carlos Corporan, Andrew Susac, Roberto Perez, Curt Casali, David Ross. This is not exactly a who's-who of Fantasy catchers, but they are just some of the ones who have scored more runs than Miguel Montero has since July 1. Thanks to both a lack of opportunities and a severe reduction in power, Montero has scored all of nine runs over the course of his last 57 games played.

Though the Diamondbacks' catcher has done little to help owners of late, his sluggish performance could actually work to your benefit on draft day next season. There have been some positives to Montero's season, which I reviewed in detail in a recent Fantasy Baseball Today blog post, but those could be forgotten by many owners five or six months from now (if not already).

Montero still has the potential to be a good power and run producer, particularly for a catcher, and while you probably don't need to protect him in keeper leagues, he could be an inexpensive pickup in next season's drafts and auctions. As you assemble a list of potential sleepers to target in 2015, be sure to keep Montero's name handy.

Mark Trumbo aiming to elevate ball
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo homered twice Sunday at Colorado, giving him 11 in 305 at-bats this year. According to the Arizona Republic, he's been looking to improve his home run total by hitting the ball in the air.

"There's no money for me on the ground," Trumbo said. "I need to drive the ball. I need to hit the ball in the air. It's frustrating when you're not doing it, but fortunately today I was able to get a few out there, and that's kind of what I need to do."

According to FanGraphs.com, Trumbo's fly-ball rate is actually a bit higher than it was last season, but fewer of those fly balls are resulting in home runs. The former Angels slugger missed 71 games earlier this season with a stress fracture in his foot.

"Looking at my numbers, if I'm a 30-home run guy, maybe I'm not that far off pace for missing half the year," said Trumbo. "But it feels like this year it's been more frustrating. The balls I've hit hard have been lower for outs. You look around the league, and the guys who are in my same mold probably are getting the ball up in the air. That's what I've got to do, too."
