Casey Kotchman – 3 for 4 with 2 RBI and now had 5 multi hit games in august and is hitting .341 on the year.  Would anyone else be mad if Kotchman wins the AL batting title?

Justin Morneau – 2 for 4 in his rehad game and is now hitting .353 on the year.  If you have room to stash Morneau it might not be a bad idea, but I wouldn’t drop anyone worthwhile for him.

Scott Baker – Continuing to have elbow problems and will likely be placed back on the DL.  Don’t forget that Baker had elbow surgery in the offseason and its just not feeling 100%.  He is expected to meet with doctors on Tuesday.

Shin-Soo Choo – Had to at bats in his first rehab start and went hitless.  Funny, he did a lot of that in the majors as well.  Shoo is about a week away from returning.

Alex Rios – 2 for 4 with a steal as he continues to show life these last few games.  I wouldn’t pick him up, because I do believe is garbage but if he continues this hot streak, we will have no choice.

Heath Bell – .1 IP 3 ER as he blew the save for the Pads.  No ones perfect right?

Tommy Hanson – May have his next start pushed back due to ineffectiveness.  I don’t believe there is any injury here, but more of a tired arm.  Skipping Hanson in the rotation for a start should help fantasy owners long term.

Chase Headley – Out 6 weeks with a broken pinky.  Go ahead and drop Headley in all leagues.
