Blue Jays' Roberto Osuna: Gets win Sunday after blowing save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osuna was tagged for two runs on three hits in the ninth inning Sunday to blow his fourth save of the season, but was then credited with his third win after the Jays rallied in the bottom half of the frame to beat the Yankees 4-3.

It's the second time in the last week the normally reliable 21-year-old closer has coughed up some runs, but Osuna still has a strong 2.61 ERA and 81:13 K:BB in 69 innings on the season. Expect the team to lean heavily on him over the final week as they try to clinch a playoff spot.

Yankees' Michael Pineda: Fans seven in Sunday's no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pineda (6-11) allowed just one run on three hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out seven Sunday, but came away with a no-decision in a 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays.

Despite having little to show for it, he's been very effective in September, posting a 2.66 ERA and 34:10 K:BB in 23.2 innings across five starts. Pineda's last decision, a loss, came on Aug. 29, while he last recorded a victory all the way back on Aug. 5. He'll get one more shot at another win at home Friday against the Orioles.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Unused in Sunday's save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel was left in the bullpen in a save situation in Boston's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Rays on Sunday.

Until we hear otherwise, not going to Kimbrel appears to be a decision based on his usage over the last week, and not due to injury. Boston's closer had pitched four of the last five days, so he was allowed to sit this opportunity out despite the Red Sox having an off day Monday. Instead, manager John Farrell left Joe Kelly (2.2 innings) in the game to finish off the Rays in the 10th inning.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Picks up win in extra innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly pitched the final 2.2 innings in Boston's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Rays on Sunday. He allowed two hits and struck out four to earn the win.

Kelly came on in the eighth inning after Tampa Bay had tied the game and induced a double-play grounder to ward off any further damage. It was another strong effort for Kelly and a sign of the growing confidence manager John Farrell has in the fire-balling right-hander, who has picked up more high-leverage work over the month of September.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Shuts down Indians on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon threw eight scoreless innings against the Indians on Sunday to earn his eighth win of the season.

He struck out 11 and walked just three against an Indians squad that would have clinched the AL Central had they won. The start tied career-highs in terms of innings and strikeouts, and it broke a two game stretch over which he had allowed 12 runs. Rodon has been woefully inconsistent in his sophomore season, but starts like Sunday's will likely keep his auction price somewhat inflated in 2017.
