  • Player Notes
    Jose Alvarado Aug 25 12:50am ET

    The Tampa Bay Rays placed reliever Jose Alvarado (elbow) on the 10-day injured list on Saturday with left elbow inflammation and activated infielder Joey Wendle (wrist) from the injured list in a corresponding move. Alvarado just recently returned from an oblique injury and is now right back on the shelf. The left-hander allowed a hit, three walks and an earned run in just one-third of an inning to take the loss as the opener on Saturday against the Orioles, too. He's no lock to make it back this year and can be left to the waiver wire now that he's no longer getting save chances. Wendle has been hurt most of the year and is hitting .206/.274/.277 with no homers, 10 RBI and four steals in 141 at-bats. He figures to be a bench player for Tampa and will have minimal appeal.

    Wilmer Flores Aug 25 12:40am ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Wilmer Flores (back), who hasn't played since Tuesday, said he has been dealing with a back issue. Flores doesn't seem to think the injury is serious, though, and manager Torey Lovullo said that Flores has been available the past few days. The 28-year-old Venezuelan is hitting a fine .307/.353/.466 for the Snakes this year, but he's really only been valuable in NL-only leagues because of his lack of consistent playing time. Flores has just six home runs and 22 RBI in 189 at-bats over the full season. He could return as early as Sunday.

    Kolten Wong Aug 25 12:40am ET

    St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong (toe) left the game early on Saturday after fouling a ball off his toe. Wong said his big toe isn't fractured, but he had a lot of pain and swelling that needed to be alleviated by drilling a hole in the nail. He's on crutches and will be out for several days, but he's encouraged by initial X-rays. This could be something that will send him to the injured list, but for now consider him day-to-day. The 28-year-old had a single and a run scored in three plate appearances on Saturday and is now hitting .272/.356/.395 with nine homers, 48 runs, 48 RBI and 17 steals in 458 plate appearances this year. Yairo Munoz or the struggling Matt Carpenter could benefit from Wong's injury.

    Josh Bell Aug 25 12:40am ET

    Having not hit a home run since August 13, Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Josh Bell broke the drought on Saturday night as the Pirates thumped the Reds 14-0. The seventh-inning three-run blast gives Bell 102 RBI on the season, along with 31 HR and 84 runs scored. His owners can only hope that the 365-foot shot off of Reds relieverKevin Gausman breaks the top-tier first baseman out his recent slump, as Bell is still just 4-for-40 over his last ten games.

    Edwin Diaz Aug 25 12:40am ET

    New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz (shoulder) left his outing against the Braves on Saturday with trapezius tightness. Manager Mickey Callaway said "it's really hard to say" if the injury is something that could force the hard-throwing right-hander to the injured list. On the other hand, Diaz is upbeat and doesn't consider the injury very serious. Diaz also allowed a home run, walk and two earned runs in one-third of an inning before being pulled, so this definitely doesn't help his cause in his quest to win the closing job back all to himself. If he lands on the injured list, Seth Lugo should see most of the save chances. If he's not already owned in your league and you're in need of saves, grab Lugo immediately.

    Nomar Mazara Aug 25 12:10am ET

    Texas Rangers outfielder Nomar Mazara (oblique) has started throwing and doing some light swinging. Manager Chris Woodward said Mazara is expected to increase his workouts over the next few days, and the team is cautiously optimistic that he could be ready on Sept. 1 when rosters expand. It's tough to come back quickly from oblique strains, and the 24-year-old has been out since Aug. 19. But it appears he's making good progress, but fantasy owners should still be skeptical about how much he'll be able to help with the season winding down. Mazara has hit .268/.318/.466 with 17 home runs, 65 runs, 62 RBI and four swipes on the season in 406 at-bats.

    Joey Gallo Aug 25 12:00am ET

    Texas Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo (hand) has been swinging a bat, but he's not taking batting practice and there is still some soreness in his right hand after he had surgery to fix a broken hamate bone. The Rangers want to give him a chance to play again this year. Gallo will have to play through pain and it'll depend on his pain tolerance, but he can't re-injure the hand. You have to keep Gallo stashed for his elite power just in case he makes it back next month. The 25-year-old had been making real strides with his strikeouts and he was hitting .253/.389/.598 with 22 home runs, 54 runs, 49 RBI and four steals in 70 games before his injury. Don't expect the power to come back immediately if he returns and plays through pain, however.

    John Means Aug 25 12:00am ET

    Unheralded Baltimore Orioles pitcher John Means was brilliant on Saturday, going seven innings in a victory over Tampa Bay, while only allowing only one run and striking out seven. With the victory, Means is now 9-9 on the year, with a 3.61 ERA over 117 innings, and has quietly been a top-75 pitcher in fantasy. Means will be an interesting streamer next week, going on the road to face the Kansas City Royals, who have a 23.8% K-rate and 77 wRC+ against left-handers on the year.

    Hunter Pence Aug 25 12:00am ET

    Texas Rangers outfielder Hunter Pence (back) will not play at all this weekend due to lower back tightness. He felt the tightness while working in the batting cage on Friday and was scratched from the lineup. The team is hoping that Pence will be ready to return for a two-game series that starts on Tuesday against the Angels. Texas has the day off Monday. Pence is the leading candidate for Comeback Player of the Year by hitting .297/.358/.552 with 18 home runs, 53 runs, 59 RBI and six stolen bases, but the injury bug is slowing him down in the second half. Keep Pence stashed and hope that he can return next week.

    Jose Ramirez Aug 24 11:50pm ET

    Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez (wrist) was forced to leave the game early on Saturday with a right wrist injury after his first-inning plate appearance. Ramirez underwent an MRI exam after leaving, and the Tribe pulled infield prospect Yu Chang from Triple-A Columbus' game as a precaution in case Ramirez needs to go on the injured list. Ramirez had been a disappointment for fantasy owners in the first half, but he was hitting .327/.363/.705 since the All-Star break, so losing him for any amount of time would be tough on the Indians and his fantasy owners. His 17 extra-base hits in August is tied with Boston's Rafael Devers for the most in baseball. Chang is the team's No. 11 prospect and is hitting .254/.323/.429 in 67 games on the farm. Chang or Mike Freeman could see starts at the hot corner if Ramirez misses action.

    Kolby Allard Aug 24 11:30pm ET

    Texas pitcher Kolby Allard tossed a gem on Saturday night, pitching 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball while striking out eight in a 4-0 win over the White Sox. Since being traded from Atlanta at the deadline, Allard has allowed 11 runs in 15 innings over three starts but was until very recently a prized arm in the loaded Brave's system. Allard will look to build off his best start as a Ranger when he faces the Seattle Mariners at home next Friday.

    Edwin Encarnacion Aug 24 11:20pm ET

    Out since August 3 with a fractured wrist, Yankees designated-hitter Edwin Encarnacion resumed baseball activities on Saturday, taking grounders, playing catch, and doing tee-work. Still with no firm timetable for his return, the news is nevertheless positive as the Yankee's midsummer acquisition looks to rejoin the roster sometime in September.

    Willson Contreras Aug 24 11:10pm ET

    Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras advanced in his rehabilitation prior to Saturday's game against the Nationals, progressing to making throws to second base. Out since August 3 with a hamstring injury, Contreras has spent the last few days taking part in running and agility drills and could return to the Cubs lineup by early September. Coming just in time for the stretch run of the fantasy season, Contreras will be a welcome sight to all his owners who have kept him stashed.

    Shohei Ohtani Aug 24 10:50pm ET

    Two-way sensation Shohei Ohtani continued to progress in his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery 11 months ago, throwing a 35-pitch bullpen before the Angels' game on Saturday. Ohtani ramped up his intensity in this latest session, throwing fastballs, sliders, and curveballs without incident. Manager Brad Ausmus described the pitching as "free and easy" and Ohtani remains on track to return to pitching next spring on his normal schedule.

    Pablo Sandoval Aug 24 10:50pm ET

    In the middle of his best season in years, San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval will have his year ended by Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. The 33-year old Sandoval, who's been on the shelf with elbow inflammation since August 24, had 14 home runs, 41 RBI, and 42 runs scored in 295 plate appearances this year and his 109 wRC+ was his highest since 2015.

    Pete Alonso Aug 24 10:40pm ET

    Mets first baseman Peter Alonso tied the Met's franchise record for home runs in a season on Saturday night, hitting a go-ahead three-run home run in the fifth inning against Max Fried of the Braves. New York would eventually lose 9-5 to Atlanta but Alonso's 41st home run puts him within striking distance of Aaron Judge's rookie record of 52 HR set in 2017.

    Corey Dickerson Aug 24 10:30pm ET

    Philadelphia outfielder Corey Dickerson went 4-for-5 on Saturday night, as the Phillies beat the Marlins 9-3. Dickerson had two doubles and five RBI but is still only slashing a disappointing .250/.246/.517 since being acquired from Pittsburgh at the trade deadline. Over the past 30 days, Dickerson is ranked as the #52-outfielder in standard Yahoo Leagues and will need to pick it up to stay mixed-league relevant for the remainder of the year.
