With solid playing time after leaving a crowded Tampa Bay Rays infield, Tim Beckham is now the every day shortstop for the Baltimore Orioles. The former first round pick hasn't missed a beat since joining the Orioles in July, hitting .536/.552/1.036 in his first 7 games.
Belisle, 37, has been a bullpen arm forever, and last had save opportunities for the Colorado Rockies in 2012. However, with the trade of every day closer Brandon Kintzler
, Belisle slides into the ninth inning. He's converted his first two save opportunities, and has a 4.43 ERA on the season.
The Braves have finally have their best reliever closing out games. Vizcaino has struck out 42 hitters in 40.1 innings pitched this season, and is the closer moving forward, as he's converted the last 3 save opportunities for Atlanta. Drop Jim Johnson
Oakland moved Yonder Alonso
to the Seattle Mariners, opening up the spot at first base between Chapman, Ryon Healy
and Matt Olson.
Chapman primarily plays third base, but could see time at first base, as Olson re-adjusts to the big leagues. Chapman is only hitting .231/.316/.513 this season, but has shown big power numbers in the minor leagues during his career.
