9/20/2017 Corey Seager, LAD, SS
Corey Seager went 0 for 4 Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2. He ended the game with a .300 batting average.

Analysis: Seager was back in the lineup after sitting out Monday's series opener to rest his sore right elbow, an injury that seems to have affected his offense as well as his throwing. The reigning NL Rookie of the Year is hitting .191 (9 for 47) over his last 16 games and has homered just once since Aug. 6.
9/20/2017 J.P. Crawford, Phi, SS
J.P. Crawford went 1 for 3 with a triple Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2. Crawford scored once. He ended the game with a .261 batting average.
9/20/2017 Nick Williams, Phi, LF
Nick Williams went 1 for 4 Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2. He ended the game with a .286 batting average.
9/20/2017 Justin Turner, LAD, 3B
Justin Turner went 2 for 4 Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2. He ended the game with a .324 batting average.

Analysis: It's Turner's first multihit effort since Sept. 8, though he's now hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games and has three home runs during that span - including one in Monday's series opener. The consistent third baseman gets an appealing matchup in Wednesday's finale as well, as he's 2 for 3 with a home run off Phillies scheduled starter Jake Thompson.
9/20/2017 Rhys Hoskins, Phi, 1B
Rhys Hoskins went 2 for 3 with a double and four RBIs Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2. He ended the game with a .299 batting average.

Analysis: Though Hoskins has gone five straight games since his last home run, he's still coming through with big hits like the three-run double he delivered in the seventh inning that snapped a 2-all tie. The rookie sensation has remained insanely productive on this homestand, having gone 8 for 26 with four homers and 11 RBIs in eight games.
9/20/2017 Maikel Franco, Phi, 3B
Maikel Franco went 0 for 1 Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies topped the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2. He ended the game with a .232 batting average.
9/20/2017 Aaron Altherr, Phi, LF
Aaron Altherr went 1 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2. The homer was his 18th of the season. He ended the game with a .276 batting average.

Analysis: Altherr is turning into a Dodger killer, as he became the first player ever to connect for a grand slam off Clayton Kershaw in Monday's 4-3 Philadelphia victory. The talented outfielder will take his swings off Alex Wood in Wednesday's series finale, though it should be noted that Monday's blast was only his third hit in his last 23 at-bats against a left-hander.
9/20/2017 Yasmani Grandal, LAD, C
Yasmani Grandal went 1 for 3 with a home run and an RBI Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2. The homer was his 20th of the season. He ended the game with a .244 batting average.

Analysis: The power-hitting catcher hadn't been helping fantasy teams lately, as he entered the contest 7 for 56 with just one home run and three RBIs over his previous 18 games. Grandal is a .345 hitter (10 for 29) with four homers and seven RBIs in eight career games at Citizens Bank Park, so he may be worth a look if he's in Wednesday's lineup.
9/20/2017 Curtis Granderson, LAD, CF
Curtis Granderson went 1 for 4 with a double and an RBI Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2. He ended the game with a .208 batting average.

Analysis: Granderson had a solo homer in Monday's opener, so he's having a good series so far. The former Met is always a threat at Citizens Bank Park, a venue where he's produced a .311 average (19 for 61) with five homers since the start of the 2016 season.
9/20/2017 Chase Utley, LAD, 2B
Chase Utley went 1 for 4 Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2. He ended the game with a .233 batting average.
9/20/2017 Freddy Galvis, Phi, SS
Freddy Galvis went 0 for 4 Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2. He ended the game with a .256 batting average.
9/20/2017 Chris Taylor, LAD, 2B
Chris Taylor went 1 for 4 Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2. He ended the game with a .292 batting average.
9/20/2017 Odúbel Herrera, Phi, CF
Odubel Herrera went 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI Tuesday as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2. Herrera scored once. He ended the game with a .288 batting average.

Analysis: Herrera had cooled off a bit lately, as he entered Tuesday's matchup in a mild 1-for-12 slump. He's still been terrific during the season's second half, having produced a .354 average and a .608 slugging percentage in 43 games since the All-Star break.
9/20/2017 AJ Ramos, NYM, P
AJ Ramos blew his third save, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk in 0.2 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Miami Marlins 5-4 on Tuesday. Ramos struck out two, ending the game with a 4.08 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Ramos' return to Marlins Park was a nightmare as the former Miami closer coughed up a 4-1 lead after entering in the bottom of the ninth inning. It's still his first blown save since July 14, as he had converted each of his last 10 opportunities.
9/20/2017 Kyle Barraclough, Mia, P
Kyle Barraclough improved to 6-2, allowing one hit over 1.0 scoreless inning, as the Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets 5-4 on Tuesday. Barraclough struck out one, ending the game with a 3.14 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
9/20/2017 Seth Lugo, NYM, P
Seth Lugo allowed one run on four hits and one walk in 5.0 innings as the New York Mets lost to the Miami Marlins 5-4 on Tuesday. Lugo struck out three, ending the game with a 5.03 ERA and 1.43 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: A nice bounce-back effort from the right-hander, who was pounded for seven earned runs in three-plus innings against the Cubs in his last assignment. Lugo still hasn't been all that good since returning from the DL in late August, compiling a 1-2 record and a 5.56 ERA in five starts.
9/20/2017 Jerry Blevins, NYM, P
Jerry Blevins walked one and didn't allow a hit in 1.0 scoreless inning as the New York Mets lost to the Miami Marlins 5-4 on Tuesday. Blevins did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 3.04 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
9/20/2017 Odrisamer Despaigne, Mia, P
Odrisamer Despaigne allowed three runs on six hits and one walk in 6.0 innings as the Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets 5-4 on Tuesday. Despaigne struck out two, ending the game with a 4.37 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Despaigne has been pretty solid at home, having posted a 3.13 ERA with three quality starts in his four outings at Marlins Park as a starter. He's recorded a 7.71 ERA on the road, though, and won't be a recommended option when he faces the Rockies at Coors Field next time out.
9/20/2017 Ryan Pressly, Min, P
Ryan Pressly allowed one run on three hits and one walk in 1.0 inning as the Minnesota Twins lost to the New York Yankees 5-2 on Tuesday. Pressly struck out one, ending the game with a 4.89 ERA and 1.18 WHIP on the season.
9/20/2017 Buddy Boshers, Min, P
Buddy Boshers did not allow a hit or walk in 0.1 scoreless innings as the Minnesota Twins lost to the New York Yankees 5-2 on Tuesday. Boshers did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 5.03 ERA and 1.32 WHIP on the season.
