I remember this moment as if it was yesterday.

Max Kepler left Sunday’s game with a bruised leg. Take it day in and day out for now.
Trevor Storey left Sunday’s game with a heel injury. He is expected to undergo more tests. Take it day in and day out for now.
Rugend Odor left Sunday’s match due to a hand injury. X-rays were negative. Take it day in and day out for now.
Mitch Hanegger left Sunday’s game with a tight back. It doesn’t seem too dangerous. Take it day in and day out for now.
Nico Horner left Sunday’s game with a tight triceps. It appears to have been a precautionary step. Take it day in and day out for now.
Various news and notes
Mitch Keeler threw seven goal-free innings against the Cardinals on Sunday, allowing two hits and three into the no-decision decision.

Keeler was bad at the outing, throwing all his pitches for 31% CSW and mixing it up well. Keeler was quietly brilliant in the second half, throwing 48 runs with a 3.00 ERA and 38 strokes. He still does a bad WHIP and there is a lot of walking, but his on-land run rate was great. I don’t know I’ve sold on him quite as much as the connection he gave up, but this is a step in the right direction for the previous higher probability.
Stone Jarrett went 1-for-4 with two stolen bases in the win over the Rockies on Sunday.

Garrett has quietly done very well, making .405/.436/.757 three-stroke home runs and three steals bases in 42 board appearances since his call-up. Unfortunately, he doesn’t play every day, but he’s someone who streams in the daily motion leagues and uses them in DFS.
Stephen Kwan went 3 for 5 with a home run and a stolen base in the win over the Twins on Sunday.
– Cleveland Guardians (CleGuardians) September 11, 2022
Cowan had a high and low season, but in the second half, he scored 307 with three home runs and nine stolen bases as he advanced in every game he played. There isn’t a lot of power at all, but there are great communication skills and speed and it’s likely to be worth somewhat less in 2023.
Eduardo Escobar went 2-4 with his homerun in the win over the Marlins on Sunday.

– SNY (SNYtv) September 11, 2022
Escobar has been awful for most of the season, coming in at 0.218 with 12 home runs, but since the calendar has turned to September, he’s been on fire, hitting 0.457 with four home runs. He will calm someone down, but in order for him to do so, he must be listed in all forms.
