With less than a week to go and a five-game cushion, "expected" seems a little understated ("series" is wildly overstated) but for many of us, there's still the regular season to play and the three final days could decide it all.

Julio Rodriguez (OF) SEA - Sep. 29

Rodriguez (back) is slated to return to baseball activities Thursday and continues to aim for activation Monday when first eligible, Brandon Gustafson of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The news comes directly from general manager Jerry Dipoto, who's lending further credence to the possibility of Rodriguez missing the minimal amount of time required by his IL stint. Dipoto added the decision to sideline Rodriguez temporarily was mostly precautionary, and the outfielder has reported feeling better each day thus far. The star rookie's ability to get some at-bats in over the final days of the regular season before the Mariners' expected wild-card series would naturally be a benefit for his timing at the plate, and it would serve as a platform to further corroborate his back is at full health.

09.23: Mariners placed OF Julio Rodríguez on the 10-day injured list with a lower back strain. (No word yet on exactly what the Mariners found in the 21-year-old's MRI, but it had been expected all along that they would play things
cautiously and place him on the injured list. He'll be eligible to
return for the Mariners' final  four-game series of the regular season
against the Tigers if he's recovered by then.)

09.22: Mariners manager Scott Servais told reporters after Thursday's game that Julio Rodríguez (back) will undergo an MRI exam on Friday in Kansas City. (That's
certainly not what you want to hear. Servais also called the
21-year-old's back injury "concerning". When he missed three games over
the weekend due to tightness in his lower back, Rodríguez did not have
any imaging done, so the Mariners want to get a better look at what's
going on there. Expect the club to provide an update on his status after
that imaging is done. Until then, all fantasy managers, Mariners fans
and baseball fans in general can do is hope for the best.)

Way to jinx me Peter!

I've just taken a narrow lead and keeping it in the face of a fierce fire sale trade by the Tooners -- Aaron Judge, Gerrit Cole and Scott Barlow for Yordan Alvarez and Nestor Cortes -- will not be easy.

Domingo German helped me last night. Everyone needs a Yankee.

Alex is driving to an ADL championship this year on the back of Julio. A $10 Keeper triples in value is a good strategy. 

Julio's emergence allowed the Moose Factory to trade Cedrick Mullins and Adolis Garcia (in separate deals) for Paul Sewald and Triston McKenzie in the first part and Andrew Vaughn in the second and still have a commanding lead in steals.

And everything else has gotten better.

Sidenote: It was I who traded Sewald and McKenzie for Mullins on June 6. Alex wanted Gausman and I didn't think I could afford the hit in ERA and Ratio. So I offered a set up guy who has since gone on to save 12 games for the Moose. (McKenzie since the deal? 89.7 IP, 3.21 ERA, 6 wins 9.31 WHIP. Gausman? 3.14 ERA, 9 wins, 11.32 WHIP)

08.27: Mariners signed OF Julio Rodríguez to a 12-year contract extension. (The deal, which was officially announced by the Mariners late Friday
evening, will keep Rodríguez in Seattle through the 2034 season and also
includes options for an additional five seasons, which would extend the
deal through the 2039 campaign. The team hasn't released the exact
financial details yet, but according to multiple reports, the
21-year-old superstar outfielder will receive $210 million guaranteed
and the total value of the contract could reach $470 million. Simply
put, Rodríguez is going to remain in Seattle for a very long time.)

Joins the 20-20 club. There was a time when it looked like he would end up in the 20-40 but he's slowed down. 30-30 is the current goal (as far as I'm concerned).

08.03: Julio Rodríguez said Wednesday that his right hand/wrist is getting better. (Rodríguez was placed on the injured list on Sunday with a right hand/wrist
contusion that has been a lingering issue since before the All-Star
break. But all tests have come back negative for any structural damage
and the expectation is that the budding superstar will be able to return
to the Mariners' active roster by the middle of August. He left behind
an .816 OPS with 18 home runs and 21 stolen bases through his first 96
major league games.)

I told him not to play in the home run derby. I did.

07.31: Mariners placed OF Julio Rodríguez (wrist) on the 10-day injured list. (While his x-rays came back negative, Rodríguez is apparently dealing with
significant swelling and will not be able to swing a bat for the next five days.)

Compare his stats to Bobby Witt's after we get today's feed. They aren't that different.
