  2. Sam Haggerty over Toro and Dmo

  3. Penn Murfee is it! 1.82/2.12FIP 35K-8BB

  4. Harry Ford= Harry Ford going off in his last 10 games. .450/.500/.925/1.425, 18H, 5 2B, 4 3B, 2HR, 15R, 11RBI, 5BB, 9K, 2SB.

  5. 1. JP Crawford, SS 2. Ty France, 1B 3. Julio Rodríguez, CF 4. Jesse Winker, LF 5. Mitch Haniger, RF 6. Kyle Lewis, DH 7. Eugenio Suárez, 3B 8. Cal Raleigh, C 9. Adam Frazier, 2B
