  • The news on Carlos Gonzalez's finger doesn't sound very good. He was expected to return to Colorado's lineup this week, but since it's still bothering him, it's time to start worrying about him being shut down for the season. I originally had Corey Dickerson at No. 85 in anticipation of Gonzalez forcing him out of the lineup, but he's up to No. 62 now and he remains worth playing in mixed leagues for however long Gonzalez is out.
  • Whether George Springer is coming up after the Triple-A playoffs remains a mystery. He's certainly earned it by hitting .303/.411/.600 with 37 homers and 45 steals between Double- and Triple-A this season, and if it doesn't happen, it's safe to say it's mostly about money. If Springer were 21 right now, I'd say leaving him in the minors and preventing him from collecting some September service time would be the right move. Springer, though, turns 24 this month. He deserves that promotion, and it'd be a bad precedent for the Astros not to give it to him. As is, Springer comes in at No. 98 this month. If he gets the call, he'd move up to the 60s and be worth a try in mixed leagues.
