With this strong showing, Carroll continues to solidify his status as a valuable asset in fantasy baseball leagues. In his rookie season, Carroll has played 150 games, maintaining a solid .289 batting average with 73 RBI, 158 hits, and 51 stolen bases.

Clarke Schmidt had a tough outing on Monday, lasting just 4 innings while allowing 2 earned runs on 3 hits and 3 walks.

Fantasy Impact: Despite striking out 3 batters, Schmidt's high pitch count of 79 limited his effectiveness and prevented him from earning a win. This performance raises concerns for fantasy owners, as Schmidt's season-long stats have been underwhelming with a 4.65 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. While his 8.5 K/9 and 3.17 strikeout-to-walk ratio show some promise, his inconsistency and inability to go deep into games make him a risky option moving forward.

Castillo had a rough outing against the Astros, allowing 5 earned runs on 8 hits and 1 walk over 6 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Despite his solid season stats, he struggled in a crucial outing for the Mariners on Monday. Nonetheless, it's tough to argue with his 3.20 ERA and 20.9% K-BB% in 32 starts on the season.

Merrill Kelly had a solid outing against the Yankees, going 5 innings and giving up 2 earned runs.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the loss, Kelly managed to strike out 5 batters while allowing only 4 hits and 2 walks. With a season ERA of 3.48 and a WHIP of 1.20, Kelly has been a reliable option for fantasy managers this year. Although he didn't earn a win in this game, his consistent performance throughout the season, with 12 wins, makes him a valuable asset going forward.

Despite the loss, Blake Snell continued his strong season, delivering another impressive outing as he looks to win his second career Cy Young award.

Fantasy Impact: In six innings of work, Snell allowed just four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. With this performance, Snell maintained his excellent 2.25 ERA and 1.19 WHIP for the season. His 11.7 K/9 rate also remained impressive, showcasing his ability to generate strikeouts consistently. Although the Padres fell short in a close 2-1 game, Snell's solid outing should provide fantasy managers with confidence moving forward.

Gray's season-long numbers have been solid, with a 3.95 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 8.1 K/9. He departed the contest due to right wrist tightness.

Fantasy Impact: Although his 4.51 FIP suggests some regression may be in store, his ability to limit walks and generate strikeouts bodes well for his fantasy value going forward.

In Monday's game against the Texas Rangers, Patrick Sandoval had a rough outing, lasting only 3 innings due to an oblique injury while allowing 2 hits and issuing 5 walks.

Fantasy Impact: Although he managed to keep the Rangers off the scoreboard, his lack of command was evident, as he threw 65 pitches in his short outing. This performance adds to Sandoval's disappointing season, as he now holds a 4.54 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in 28 games started. His 8.0 K/9 and 4.22 FIP suggest he has the potential to be more effective, but his 1.73 strikeout-to-walk ratio and high BABIP of 0.316 indicate that he still has work to do in order to become a reliable fantasy option. With a record of 7 wins and 13 losses after this game, Sandoval's fantasy outlook remains uncertain.

Fantasy Impact: With a solid season behind him, boasting a 3.32 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP, Verlander has solidified his status as a reliable fantasy option moving forward. Owners have been hit with some lower strikeout numbers from the 40-year-old but he has now racked up 30 wins over his last 54 starts
