• Los Angeles Angels shortstop Erick Aybar enjoyed his Sunday, swatting two home runs, knocking in four and scoring five runs as well. Aybar is not 100 percent owned in ESPN standard leagues, despite being a clear top-10 shortstop on the Player Rater. With 28 steals and a strong batting average, he could be a top-100 overall choice in 2012.
• Atlanta Braves right-hander Brandon Beachy struggled Sunday, allowing five hits and five walks in 4 1/3 messy innings. Beachy, a rookie with an exceptional WHIP and strikeout rate, hasn't won in September, but he's registered 32 strikeouts in 21 1/3 innings. Keep him active for the strikeouts alone.
Howard Smith/US PresswireBrandon Beachy hasn't won since Aug. 25, but at least he is piling up the strikeouts.
