Koda Glover, RP, Washington Nationals
Another week, another Nationals reliever. Ryan Madson was listed last week, but he's now hurt, too. Glover hasn't pitched much this season due to recovery from a shoulder injury. However, the Nats don't have many options for the ninth inning. Buyer beware, but also - cheap saves.
After missing nearly three months with a groin injury, Ryu returned to the mound and tossed a gem against the Giants - tossing six shutout innings and striking out six. Ryu figures to stick around the rotation, as Ross Stripling
and Kenta Maeda
were both moved to the bullpen. Ryu is owned in less than 40% of leagues.
Melky Cabrera, OF, Cleveland Indians
The veteran has found himself in the starting lineup for the red-hot Cleveland Indians for the past month. Over the past 23 games, the Melk man is hitting .311/.363/.459 with 3 home runs. Cabrera usually puts the ball in play, not striking out a lot. The Indians keep sending him out everyday in right field, so owners might want to add him to their roster for consistency.
