Nationals' Sean Doolittle: Secures 23rd save of the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doolittle pitched a scoreless 10th inning to collect his 23rd save of the season during Saturday's win over the Mets.

Make it 20 in a row for Doollitle since joining the Nationals, and he sports an impressive 2.55 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 11.0 K/9 for the campaign. He should continue to be viewed as a high-end fantasy asset in all settings, and the lefty is probably the favorite to open the 2018 campaign as the Washington closer.

Rangers' Miguel Gonzalez: Takes tough-luck loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (8-12) took the loss Saturday against the Athletics, despite giving up only one run on four hits in six innings and striking out five.

The right-hander has allowed only two runs in his last two starts for Texas, which have accounted for 11 innings (0.81 ERA). His 4.62 season-long ERA, however, should reflect that perhaps he's getting a bit fortunate. Of course, Gonzalez will face these same Athletics at home, which still makes him a decent streamer -- despite the repeat matchup -- because the A's rank among the league leaders in strikeouts.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Locks down another save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen worked around a hit to record his 14th save of the season Saturday against the Rangers. He struck out two batters.

Treinen continues to be a pleasant surprise as Oakland's closer choice, saving their second straight game. The right-hander boasts a 2.31 ERA and an 11-for-14 record on save conversions in 35 innings since the A's acquired him.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Clobbers 40th homer Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis hit his 40th home run of the season Saturday, a solo blast, during a 1-for-3 effort against the Rangers.

He pelted a laser to right-center field off Texas' Miguel Gonzalez to provide the only run in this surprising pitcher's duel. Davis' .241 batting average continues to hold him back for fantasy value, but even in a season packed with power, his stability in that category likely has helped many a fantasy title contender.

Athletics' Raul Alcantara: Shines with win in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara (1-1) earned the win Saturday against the Rangers, throwing five shutout innings while working around two hits and two walks in Oakland's 1-0 victory over the Rangers. He struck out five.

A last-minute replacement for Sean Manaea (back), Alcantara spun a gem, eking out just enough innings to qualify for the helpful decision. He threw 49 strikes in 86 pitches, though, which reflects his risky skill set. Still, AL-only players and desperate mixed streamers desperate enough to start him came away with a pleasant surprise. He may take another turn if Manaea can't go Thursday on the road against these same Rangers.
