Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Garrett Richards allowed six runs Wednesday against the Atlanta Braves, four of which were earned. He lasted just four innings and gave up seven hits and a walk in four innings in an outing where his spin rates were noticeably down. He did strike out three batters. With a 1.61 WHIP for the year, the baserunners were bound to start coming around to score at some point, and his ERA figures to rise even past its current 4.36 figure. Fantasy managers might want to try to move Richards now if they still can.
Houston Astros relief pitcher Cristian Javier allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out two over two innings of work in an 8-4 win over the Rangers on Wednesday night. He's now posted a 2.77 ERA over 13 innings of work since being bumped to the bullpen, and has recorded a 15:6 K:BB ratio. Obviously his value is diminished while he's in the bullpen, but he can still provide enough value to make him worth hanging onto until he can eventually make it back into Houston's rotation.
Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Adam Ottavino collected his fourth save of the year Wednesday, allowing one run on two hits to the Atlanta Braves in a 10-8 victory. Ottavino was filling in for closer Matt Barnes, who had pitched several days in a row. Ottavino is not going to get many save chances, but he still is an excellent value, especially in leagues that value holds. He now has a 2.89 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 34 strikeouts in 28 innings this season.
Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez (illness) left Wednesday night's game early, and was replaced by fellow backstop Kevin Plawecki. It was later reported that this was not the result of any injury, but that he had been experiencing a "stomach illness." He was 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored before exiting. Fantasy managers can feel comfortable that Vazquez should not miss any further time.
Boston Red Sox utility man Christian Arroyo played the hero once again Wednesday night, pinch-hitting with the bases loaded and producing a go-ahead grand slam. The home run, Arroyo's fourth of the season, put the Red Sox ahead for good. Arroyo is slugging .619 over his last seven games, and has home runs in three of his last six. He isn't likely to keep this up for long, but fantasy managers may want to make a short-term add while he's so hot at the dish.
Washington Nationals outfielder Victor Robles continued his recent struggles on Wednesday, going 0-for-4 at the plate in a 3-1 victory over the Pirates. It's been a rough go of things as of late for Robles, as he is now slashing .186/.327/.302 with three steals, two RBI and seven runs scored over his last 15 games. With this recent stretch, Robles is now slashing .228/.341/.316 over 55 games and still has yet to hit a home run this year. Hopefully he can bounce back soon, although his .223 xBA and .332 xSLG don't suggest there's much room for improvement currently.
Minnesota Twins shortstop Andrelton Simmons (ankle) exited Wednesday night's game due to left ankle tightness, according to Phil Miller of the Star Tribune. There's no word yet on the severity or how long it may cost him, but managers aren't in a huge rush for his return as he's been scuffling along this season with a .244 average and .643 OPS both his worst marks since 2014. Keep an eye out for further updates after the game, but for now consider him day-to-day.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in a 10-8 loss to the Red Sox on Wednesday. It marked the third time in his last six games he has gone hitless, but that hasn't stopped him from putting up solid numbers recently, as he is slashing .295/.358/.443 with three steals, 12 RBI and six runs scored over his last 15 games. He'll look to bounce back from this performance on Thursday in the series opener with the Cardinals.
Minnesota Twins third baseman Josh Donaldson (calf) exited Wednesday night's game due to tightness in his right calf, according to Phil Miller of the Star Tribune. The move was described as precautionary, as it was a right calf issue that cost him several games last season. Donaldson has been pretty solid at the plate this year, slashing .237/.335/.453 with 10 home runs, 26 RBI and 30 runs scored over 54 games. Consider him day-to-day for now, and look for further updates after the game.
Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman (quad) could be facing a lengthy absence with a left quad strain, according to Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle. Manager Dusty Baker said that the severity of Bregman's injury is not yet known, but he added that, "it looks like we've lost Bregman for a while". He will undergo further examinations on Thursday, but managers should start preparing for an IL stint in the near future for Bregman.
Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Keegan Akin fell to 0-2 in Wednesday's 8-7 loss to the Indians. Akin pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing all eight runs on eight hits (including a solo home run) and three walks with seven strikeouts. The 26-year-old has struggled since joining the starting rotation and now owns a 5.76 ERA. Akin's next start will be a tough matchup against the Astros at home, but fantasy managers should not trust him in any start at this point.
Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins SS Andrelton Simmons (ankle) exited against the Seattle Mariners with left ankle tightness Wednesday, June 16.
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander went 0-for-1 with a strikeout in a pinch-hit appearance in Wednesday's 8-7 loss to the Indians. Santander has not performed as well as fantasy managers have probably hoped for, slashing .250/.278/.412with a 3.2% walk rate and a 25.8% strikeout rate. His walk rate and slugging percentage are the lowest since he started playing consistently in 2019 and his strikeout rate is the highest. He hasn't done poorly, but fantasy managers may want to keep him on their benches if they can until he starts to pick things up.
San Diego Padres second baseman Jake Cronenworth stung a pinch-hit solo home run Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies. Cronenworth interrupted his off day by rounding the bases in the sixth frame, staying in the contest to finish 1-for-2. The 27-year-old's numbers have dipped of late, hitting just .216 in June (11-for-51) with three extra-base hits. However, he's supplied steady fantasy production as a middle infielder, slashing .272/.338/.412 with seven homers, three steals and 63 runs-plus-RBI over 289 plate appearances. He merits a platoon role in most fantasy formats.
San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies. El Nio's solo blast in the third frame was the longest of his career, traveling 477 feet. He also doubled in a run to lift his season slash to .277/.352/.665. After going yard in back-to-back games, Tatis rocks an NL-leading 21 homers with 13 steals and 95 runs-plus-RBI across 219 plate appearances. At the moment, he's fantasy baseball's most valuable offensive player.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder Trey Mancini had a nice day at the plate in Wednesday's 8-7 loss to the Indians. Mancini went 3-for-3 with two singles, a double, and a strikeout. The 29-year-old has cooled off in June but still has a solid .275/.355/.484 slash line with 12 home runs and 48 RBI on the season. He should continue to be a high-end fantasy option despite hitting in an overall weak lineup.
San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham finished 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies. Slotted down to fifth in the order against southpaw Kyle Freeland, Grisham promptly registered his season high for RBI, cranking a two-run blast in the third frame before tacking on a sacrifice fly in his final plate appearance. The 24-year-old has missed nearly two months this season with leg injuries but has provided tremendous production when healthy, slashing .289/.370/.520 with eight homers, seven steals and 44 runs-plus-RBI over 173 plate appearances. The extended IL stints have made Grisham a roster liability for fantasy squads, but he's a solid OF2 when he's in the lineup.
Toronto Blue Jays RHP Rafael Dolis (hand) exited against the New York Yankees with numbness in his right hand Wednesday, June 16, according to manager Charlie Montoyo.
Minnesota Twins SS Andrelton Simmons (undisclosed) exited against the Seattle Mariners with an undisclosed injury Wednesday, June 16.
Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez (illness) exited against the Atlanta Braves with a stomach illness Wednesday, June 16.
