Nobody is hotter than Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who smacked a pair of home runs and knocked in seven runs Wednesday. Tulowitzki has 11 home runs and 27 RBIs in 15 September games. It might be too late for a run at NL MVP, but Tulowitzki is going to get top-20 consideration in 2011 drafts.

Tampa Bay Rays first baseman Dan Johnson hit a pair of two-run home runs to key the win over the New York Yankees Wednesday. Johnson, the International League MVP this season with 30 home runs and 95 RBIs in 98 games, can help those in AL-only leagues, especially if the scoring system favors walks.

Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Kyle Drabek made his major league debut with six innings of three-run ball Wednesday, striking out five Baltimore Orioles. Drabek, who was 14-9 with a 2.94 ERA at Double-A New Hampshire, is likely to get a few more starts this season, but fantasy owners are better off choosing safe options.
