Weekly Roster Update 08/23/19

It’s Friday, you know what that means, we’ve updated all 30 teams’ rosters! We’ve given significant boosts to this past week’s top performers and changed the lineups to best reflect the ones being put on the field each day by MLB clubs.

This weekend is Players’ Weekend! We’ll be giving a special shoutout to
the past week’s top performers that have top nicknames!

Pete “Polar Bear” Alonso

The fans have spoken! Pete Alonso was this week’s winner of the #ChooseToBoost poll. Keep an eye out for our next poll so that you can vote for which top performer of the weekend gets a boost! Follow us on Twitter @RBIGAME to make sure you never miss a poll!

Polar Bear made history this week! He became the first player in RBI history to win the #ChooseToBoost poll twice! Don’t let that overshadow the fact that he also broke the NL Rookie HR Record, smashing his 40th tater at the Royals on August 18th. The Rookie HR Record is 52 set by Aaron “BAJ” Judge in 2017. The Mets’ Franchise HR record is 41, set by Todd Hundley and Carlos “Señor Octubre” Beltran.

We’ve boosted Polar Bear’s Power.

Andrew “Heandog” Heaney

Heandog has been a hot dog this past week. Heandog’s last two starts he’s thrown a combined 15 innings, tallying 20 K, 0 BB, 4 H, 4 ER, and two big Ws. Heandog has a WHIP of 1.166, best of all Angels starters.

We’ve boosted Heandog’s Curve & Drop.

Chuck Nazty and his bat have been surging recently to help give the Rockies some life in the Wild NL West. In his last 6 games, Chuck Nazty has slashed .435/.500/1.413 with 10 H, 2 doubles, 3 trips to souinver city, and 7 RBIs.

A man who can do it all, Chuck Nazty leads the Rock Bois in Hits, Doubles, Triples, Runs, BA, OBP, SLG, OPS, and sick beards.

We’ve boosted Chuck Nazty’s Contact & Power.

We’ve boosted Matty B’s Curve.
