  • Player Notes
    Max Scherzer Jul 24 12:43pm ET

    Washington Nationals RHP Max Scherzer is being discussed as as a trade possibility, according to a report Saturday, July 24. The report also notes that Scherzer has a clause in his contract to veto trades.

    Isiah Kiner-Falefa Jul 24 12:40pm ET

    Texas Rangers infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa appears to be getting back into his groove at the plate. On Friday, he went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored in the 7-3 loss to the Houston Astros. There is not a whole lot of positive things coming from this Rangers' lineup right now. Kiner-Falefa is a bright spot, hitting .258/.293/.358 with six home runs and 33 RBI. Certainly, worth snagging in plenty of fantasy formats. Probably, a borderline option in 12-team formats, but can certainly help elsewhere.

    Kike Hernandez Jul 24 12:30pm ET

    Boston Red Sox utility player Kike Hernandez remains in the lineup for Saturday's contest against the New York Yankees. He'll bat leadoff and cover second base versus righty Jameson Taillon. Normally, Hernandez isn't a huge factor with the bat, but that changed this season. Since the All-Star break, Hernandez is hitting .333/.406/.815 with seven extra-base hits, three home runs and eight RBI. He is turning himself into a must-have fantasy option and someone who appears to be a great play for DFS contests on Saturday.

    Paul Sewald Jul 24 12:30pm ET

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Paul Sewald earned his sixth win of the season Friday, throwing 1 1/3 innings and only giving up a walk while striking out three batters. Sewald has carved out a nice role for himself as the primary setup man in Seattle, with seven holds and three saves, and the wins just pump up that value even further, though relief wins are fluky and hard to rely on going forward. With a 2.45 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 51 strikeouts in 29 1/3 innings, Sewald is a worthy add in any format and essential if Kendall Graveman were to be traded.

    Cal Raleigh Jul 24 12:30pm ET

    Seattle Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh hit his first major-league home run Friday night, and i was a big one, traveling 444 feet off of Oakland Athletics starter Frankie Montas. The two-run shot was Raleigh's only hit in four at-bats, and he struck out in each of his other three turns at the plate. The switch-hitting Raleigh has plenty of potential, but he's struck out in eight of 20 career at-bats over his first six games. He'll need to limit that number before he becomes a consideration in standard leagues, though he's a definite add in dynasty and keeper formats.

    Eduardo Rodriguez Jul 24 12:30pm ET

    Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez (head) was forced to exit early during Friday's game against the New York Yankees. He was dealing with migraine symptoms and only lasted one inning during the contest. On Saturday, manager Alex Cora mentioned that Rodriguez was feeling better. It sounds like he should be able to make his next start against the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday. Hopefully, this was only a one time thing and he won't be forced to be placed on the injured list.

    Josh Rojas Jul 24 12:20pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) has been activated from the 10-day injured list. He has been out since early June due to a hamstring issue. He'll take the roster spot of Josh Rojas (finger) who lands on the 10-day injured list. It seemed like the D-Backs were just going to hold Rojas out for a few games. He is dealing with a dislocated finger, so he'll miss at least 10 days of action. Cabrera was hitting .240/.332/.385 with five homers before landing on the injured list. He won't be much of an asset in most fantasy formats. Rojas is likely worth holding through the injury because he has been a reliable bat for Arizona this season.

    Yusei Kikuchi Jul 24 12:10pm ET

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Yusei Kikuchi got back on track Friday night after two consecutive tough outings, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk in six innings against the Oakland Athletics. He struck out a career-high 12 batters. Kikuchi has recorded a quality start in 12 of his 18 games this year, and now carries a 3.95 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 117 strikeouts in 109 1/3 innings. He's been one of the most consistent starters in the league and deserves to be in fantasy lineups week in and week out.

    Josh Rojas Jul 24 12:10pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Josh Rojas (finger) is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs. He'll miss his second straight game due to a dislocated finger. It sounds like Rojas is day-to-day and should avoid a trip to the injured list. Rojas should be able to continue holding solid fantasy value, assuming he doesn't miss significant time. Until then, Josh VanMeter will bat leadoff and cover second base versus righty Alec Mills on Saturday. VanMeter could have some low-end streaming appeal or DFS value in a favorable matchup here.

    Kendall Graveman Jul 24 12:10pm ET

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Kendall Graveman has been an ace out of the bullpen all season, and he finally reached the 10-save plateau on Friday against the Oakland Athletics. Graveman allowed one walk and recorded two strikeouts in a scoreless ninth inning in the 4-3 Mariners victory. Graveman has a 0.87 ERA and 0.71 WHIP in 31 appearances, earning himself a place on fantasy rosters in all formats despite the underwhelming saves totals.

    Kolby Allard Jul 24 12:10pm ET

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Kolby Allard was smacked around during Friday's loss to the Houston Astros. He went four innings, seven hits allowed, seven earned runs in the 7-3 loss. Allard tossed two scoreless frames before completely melting down in the third inning. He has allowed 12 runs over his last two outings. The Rangers will continue to ride with their young starter in a lost season. However, his fantasy value is quickly evaporating with an 4.71 ERA on the year.

    Michael Fulmer Jul 24 12:03pm ET

    Detroit Tigers RHP Michael Fulmer (spine) will make his next rehab appearance for Class AAA Toledo Sunday, July 25. He could be activated from the injured list shortly thereafter if all goes well.

    Josh Rojas Jul 24 12:03pm ET

    The Arizona Diamondbacks placed INF/OF Josh Rojas (finger) on the 10-day injured list Saturday, July 24, due to a dislocated left finger. In a corresponding move, INF Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) was activated from the injured list.

    Kris Bryant Jul 24 12:00pm ET

    Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant (hamstring) made his return to the starting lineup on Friday. He missed some time prior to that due to a minor hamstring issue. He'll play left field and bat second versus righty Merrill Kelly on Saturday. Bryant has been the target to plenty of trade rumors over the last few weeks. That isn't going to stop with the deadline less than a week away. His fantasy value is unlikely to change much, assuming he does get traded. He is certainly worth a look as a DFS option for Saturday's contest.

    Darien Nunez Jul 24 11:53am ET

    The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled RHP Brusdar Graterol and LHP Darien Nunez from Class AAA Oklahoma City Friday, July 23. In a corresponding move, LHP Garrett Cleavinger was optioned to Oklahoma City.

    Brusdar Graterol Jul 24 11:53am ET

    Carson Kelly Jul 24 11:50am ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Carson Kelly (wrist) began his rehab assignment in the Arizona Complex League on Thursday. He suffered a fractured wrist in mid-June from a hit by pitch. Prior to the injury, Kelly was hitting .260/.385/.460 with eight home runs, 26 RBI. He'll likely need a few weeks to get back into his groove at the plate. Kelly is certainly worth stashing in plenty of fantasy formats. The hope is that he'll resume being the starting catcher within the next few weeks.

    Craig Stammen Jul 24 11:40am ET

    San Diego Padres relief pitcher Craig Stammen (personal) has been activated off the paternity list following a short stint away from the team. He ended up missing three games, but is back as a main piece in the Padres bullpen. Stammen is posting a 2.78 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 52/8 K/BB ratio across 55 innings this season. He doesn't have a ton of fantasy upside, but is certainly an asset in formats where relievers are valuable. Left-hander Daniel Camarena has been optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.
