Reds: After a couple poor outings, Aroldis Chapman has been diagnosed with a fatigued shoulder. He was expected to be held out of the game on Tuesday and could miss a few extra days as well. Thankfully, Chapman was not feeling any pain in the shoulder. Jonathan Broxton will likely get any save chances until the Reds deem Chapman ready to return to action.

Recommended Pickup

Donovan Solano, 2B/3B, MIA: Since the Marlins traded Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers and put Solano in the starting lineup on July 25, the rookie has hit .280 with five stolen bases. That doesn't sound very glamorous, but Solano has really taken his efforts up a notch over the past couple of weeks. Since August 20, Solano has hit .364/.407/.390 and has scored 12 runs and drove in 11 baserunners. Be wary: Solano has never hit this well in the minor leagues, and it's likely just a hot stretch. But that hot stretch comes at a key time during the season, when many fantasy owners are in the midst of the playoffs. His eligibility at second base and third base could make him a valuable option as he continues to hit well for now.
