  • Player Notes
    Juan Soto Jul 25 12:40am ET

    Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto stayed hot Saturday night, hitting his 17th home run of the season off of Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Adam Plutko. It was his only hit in four at-bats. Soto has now homered six times in eight games since the all-star break, and is slashing .309/.507/.870 with eight home runs, 18 RBI, and a steal in his last 15 games. There's no way any player could keep up this pace, but Soto makes it look easy. It'll be fun for fantasy managers to watch him tear up the league and lead them through the fantasy playoffs.

    Jon Lester Jul 25 12:40am ET

    Washington Nationals starting pitcher Jon Lester was pressed into duty a day early on Saturday after fellow starter Max Scherzer was scratched, and once again he did not seem to have his best stuff. Corbin gave up three runs on three hits and a walk in five innings to take the loss against the Baltimore Orioles. He struck out two batters, and two of the three hits against him went for home runs. Lester now has a 5.02 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and 51 strikeouts in 75 1/3 innings on the season. He doesn't belong on fantasy rosters.

    Kyle Crick Jul 25 12:33am ET

    The Pittsburgh Pirates placed RHP Kyle Crick on release waivers rather than outright waivers Saturday, July 24, per source.

    Nathan Eovaldi Jul 25 12:30am ET

    Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi was outstanding Saturday night, throwing 7 2/3 innings and allowing two runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out eight New York Yankees. He left in position for a win but was stuck with a no-decision after reliever Adam Ottavino gave up the lead. It was a banner night for Eovaldi, who pounded the zone to the tune of 82 strikes out of 100 pitches, allowing him to pitch deeper in the game than he had in any other this season. He now has a 3.49 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 114 strikeouts in 116 innings this season. He belongs on fantasy rosters in most formats.

    Adam Ottavino Jul 25 12:30am ET

    Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Adam Ottavino didn't have his best night Saturday, yielding two runs on three hits and no walks in just a third of an inning of work to give up the lead in a 4-3 defeat against the New York Yankees He was saddled with his third loss and fourth blown save of the season. Ottavino was a bit unlucky in this one, as two of the hits against him were bloopers that fell in in the shallow outfield. It all looks the same in the box score, and Ottavino's ERA and WHIP both rose to 3.35 and 1.36. He remains a solid piece in holds leagues, with potential for more as an insurance policy for closer Matt Barnes.

    Asher Wojciechowski Jul 25 12:23am ET

    New York Yankees RHP Asher Wojciechowski elected to become a free agent instead of accepting an outright assignment Saturday, July 24.

    Anthony Rizzo Jul 25 12:00am ET

    Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo went 1-for- 4 with a run scored and two strikeouts in a 7-3 loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday. This continues what has been a cold stretch at the plate recently for Rizzo, who is slashing .194/.303/.369 with four home runs, six RBI and 11 runs scored over his last 30 games. With this slump, Rizzo's season line now stands at .241/.341/.420 with 11 homers, four steals, 35 RBI and 38 runs scored over 88 games. To say that this has been a disappointing season for Rizzo is an understatement, and while his Statcast metrics suggest he's been slightly unlucky so far, his .249 xBA and .429 xSLG don't offer much hope of a significant turnaround in the second half.

    Adalberto Mondesi Jul 24 11:50pm ET

    Kansas City Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi (oblique) could begin a rehab assignment within the next two weeks, according to Jesse Newell of the Kansas City Star. There's still no timetable of just when he'll be able to return, but this is a step in the right direction and provides a glimmer of clarity on where he's at. Mondesi has been limited to just 10 games this year, but when he was on the field he produced at the plate by slashing .361/.378/.833 with four homers, one steal, nine RBI and six runs scored. Managers should continue to monitor for further updates, but for now it appears that he could be back in Kansas City by mid-August.

    Brandon Belt Jul 24 11:30pm ET

    San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt (knee) ran the bases on Saturday and expects to begin a rehab assignment within the next few days, according to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle. This is good news for Belt, who has been out since injuring his knee on a slide at home plate on June 23. He's had a solid year at the plate so far, slashing .253/.363/.512 with 11 home runs, 28 RBI and 30 runs scored over 55 games. There's still no timetable for his return, but managers in deeper formats and NL only leagues should scoop him up if he's available.

    George Springer Jul 24 11:00pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer returned to the leadoff spot in the batting order on Saturday and made manager Charlie Montoyo look like a genius by homering in the club's 10-3 win over the Mets. His third inning blast off Taijuan Walker was his eighth of the campaign as he finished the day going 2-for-6 with a pair of runs scored. Springer had settled into the fourth and fifth spot in the batting order since returning to the Jays lineup at the end of June, but with a top of the order shakeup, he may be back to batting first for good. It would undoubtedly bode well for his fantasy outlook the rest of the way as he currently sits with 15 RBI, 17 runs, and a .232 BA through 27 games this year.

    Hyun Jin Ryu Jul 24 11:00pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu was handed a six-run lead on Saturday, but was unable to go five innings as he settled for a no-decision in their 10-3 win over the Mets. The southpaw tossed four-shutout frames to begin the game before getting pulled with one out in the fifth after allowing five-straight hits. Three runners came around to score in the frame as he finished the night with 10 hits allowed and a 4/1 K/BB in the 77-pitch effort. It was a bit of a letdown that Ryu couldn't hang in long enough to earn the win as his record sits at 9-5 with a 3.44 ERA and 1.18 WHIP through 110 IP. He hasn't pitched his sharpest over the last month and a half, so managers will have to decide if they want to start him on the road next week against a formidable Red Sox club.

    Taylor Hearn Jul 24 11:00pm ET

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Taylor Hearn will take to the hill on Sunday against the A's. Jordan Lyles will get some more rest, which opens the door for Hearn to pick up a rare spot-start against Oakland. The 26-year-old lefty currently owns a 2-3 record and a 4.70 ERA throughout 30 games this season, so fantasy managers looking to fill a void may want to look elsewhere.

    Bo Bichette Jul 24 10:50pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette got his first career start out of the cleanup spot on Saturday and went on to go 3-for-4 with three runs and two RBI in the club's 10-3 win over the Mets. The 23-year-old swatted a pair of singles and also chipped in with his 17th dinger of the season in what turned out to be a smart move by Charlie Montoyo to shuffle up the top half of the lineup. Bichette is now sitting pretty with a .294/.345/.479 slash line with 76 runs, 63 RBI, and 13 thefts through 94 games in 2021. Whether he remains getting at-bats as the cleanup hitter remains to be seen, but it's certain that he'll stay in the top half of the lineup where his counting stats will continue to thrive.

    Teoscar Hernandez Jul 24 10:50pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez swatted a pair of long balls on Saturday as his club went on to a 10-3 victory over the New York Mets. He followed up a two-run blast in the third with another two-run shot in the ninth inning to finish the game going 2-for-4 with a walk and four RBI. It was Hernandez's third homer in his last three games and fourth since the All-Star game as he now sits with 15 big flies on the year with 41 runs, 55 RBI, seven steals, and a .297 BA. The 28-year-old is putting together a pretty solid five-category performance in 2021 and managers should expect more of the same going forward in the second half.

    Marcus Semien Jul 24 10:50pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Marcus Semien clubbed his 24th long ball of the season on Saturday as his club defeated the Mets 10-3. His three-run shot in the fifth inning chased starter Taijuan Walker from the ballgame as he went on to add a single to finish the game going 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. Semien had gone hitless in his last five games, so manager Charlie Montoyo shuffled the top of his lineup by moving Semien down to the third hole and moving George Springer into the leadoff spot. A move down the lineup isn't exactly ideal, but as long as the 30-year-old remains in the top-third, he'll continue to put up superb numbers in this dangerous offense.

    Braxton Garrett Jul 24 10:50pm ET

    Miami Marlins starting pitcher Braxton Garrett was splendid on Saturday, taking the win against the Padres. The 23-year-old got called up from Jacksonville for this one, replacing Trevor Rogers (back), who found a spot on the 10-day injured list. Overall, Braxton worked his way through seven innings before calling it a day, allowing two runs but made up for it by fanning 10 batters. The lefty has appeared in four games for the big club this season, currently sitting on a 1-1 record and a hideous 5.17 ERA. He is worth a spot on the radar, especially if he remains in the majors and continues to pitch well.

    Jake Woodford Jul 24 10:40pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jake Woodford was decent in Saturday's start against the Cincinnati Reds. He tossed five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits with two walks and two strikeouts. Woodford needed 88 pitches (57 strikes) to get through the five innings. He's been an acceptable starter since joining the rotation, and that's good enough for the Cardinals right now, who have been dealing with injuries and ineffectiveness in their starting rotation all year. Woodford will likely continue starting for the Cardinals, but he doesn't really belong on a mixed league roster right now.

    Luis Castillo Jul 24 10:40pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Luis Castillo was excellent in a 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. Castillo tossed seven innings of one-run ball while striking out nine and walked three. The veteran picked up the win in the contest, improving his record to 4-10 on the year with his only run allowed an unearned run coming as a result of Eugenio Suarez's fielding error in the second inning. The veteran hurler was impressive on Saturday, racking up a 33% CSW and 23 whiffs. Castillo now has a 4.12 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 113 strikeouts over 115 2/3 innings of work. He will face off against the Chicago Cubs next time through the rotation.

    Patrick Sandoval Jul 24 10:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Patrick Sandoval was dominant on Saturday against Minnesota. The 24-year-old recorded the win, taking a no-hitter into the ninth before it was canceled by a double from Brent Rooker. Overall, it was a fantastic outing from the southpaw, striking out 13 batters in total. After logging a loss in each of his previous two starts, fantasy managers were undoubtedly encouraged with the performance against the Twins. He isn't a consistent fantasy option. However, he has upside, especially if he can continue to produce as he did in this one.

    From RotoBaller

    Heath Hembree Jul 24 10:40pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Heath Hembree threw a scoreless ninth inning to save a 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. Hembree did not allow a base-runner in the outing while picking up his second save in as many days. The veteran right-hander has been excellent of late, posting a 1.23 ERA, four saves, and 10 strikeouts spanning 7 1/3 innings over his past seven appearances. Hembree overall has eight saves as he has overtaken the ninth-inning role for the Reds this season. He has pitched well enough to hold onto the spot even after Tejay Antone and Lucas Sims return from the injured list.
