Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa has landed on the injured list, as the 24-year-old is dealing with a back injury. He'll play in 110 or fewer games for the third straight season. I
earlier in the season when he was injured, but I have to again: It's going to be extremely difficult to draft Correa anywhere before Round 4 next year since he can't stay on the field consistently.
Arizona Diamondbacks Shortstop Nick Ahmed -- The 29-year-old picked a great time to heat up, as many fantasy owners are looking for a replacement to the aforementioned Correa or San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. Ahmed recently won National League Player of the Week and is hitting .323 with seven home runs in August. Ahmed has a chance to score 90 runs and drive in 90 runs while hitting more than 20 home runs and chipping in double-digit stolen bases. The Diamondbacks shortstop is the red-hot addition this week, so jump on this now.
San Francisco Giants Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski -- The 28-year-old is making the most of his first opportunity in the big leagues, as he has slugged 17 home runs in fewer than a half-season's worth of games. The outfielder hit three home runs Aug. 16 and is giving fantasy owners who picked him up a boost. The good thing is he is still available in more than 50 percent of Yahoo! Sports leagues, so he can provide depth for fantasy owners down the stretch.
Minnesota Twins Second Baseman Luis Arraez --
In March, we stressed multi-position players
to give our roster flexibility
. Recently, I have mentioned that we may have to target players that
only help us in certain categories
down the stretch. This brings me to Arraez. The 22-year-old is eligible at second base, third base and outfield, which is crucial. Arraez is also batting .341 on the season, which is elite production in the batting-average category. However, he doesn't provide any power and won't steal any bases. If you need a late boost in the batting average category, Arraez is your guy.
