    George Springer May 23 7:00pm ET

    Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that outfielder George Springer (back) could return to the starting lineup on Friday. Springer hasn't played since Sunday due to lower back tightness, but he's been taking batting practice and appears close to returning. The 29-year-old ranks eighth in the American League in batting average (.313), second in runs scored (41), fifth in hits (57), first in home runs (17) and first in RBI (42), so his fantasy owners will surely be ecstatic when he comes back. Jake Marisnick will go back to a bench role when Springer returns to the lineup.

    Renato Nunez May 23 7:00pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles third baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez flexed his muscle again in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Yankees, going 2-for-4 with a single, a three-run home run, and a strikeout. Nunez took Tommy Kahnle deep in the eighth inning for his 10th long ball of the season. The 25-year-old has hit for power but not average this season as his batting average now sits at .223. The low average and high strikeout rate (27.7%) render Nunez unusable in season-long leagues at this time, although he could be a cheap daily fantasy play in favorable matchups

    Tyler Thornburg May 23 6:40pm ET

    Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Tyler Thornburg (hip) has been placed on the 10-day injured list. Thornburg is dealing with a hip impingement, but owns a 7.71 ERA this season. He hasn't pitched well this season, so the Red Sox may take their time with him. Right-handed relief pitcher Travis Lakins has been added to the active roster in a corresponding move.

    Chad Green May 23 6:30pm ET

    New York Yankees pitcher Chad Green will draw the start versus the Kansas City Royals on Friday. This marks Green's second start of the year, but he'll likely only go an inning or two. Green has a 12.41 ERA this season, so this is going to be a bullpen day for the Bronx Bombers. It's unclear who is going to come in to relieve Green after the first few innings.

    Tony Kemp May 23 6:30pm ET

    Houston Astros outfielder/infielder Tony Kemp will slide over to second base for Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Aledmys Diaz has been playing second base lately, but he'll bat sixth and cover first base against righty Lucas Giolito. Kemp gets to move from the outfield to second base, but honestly doesn't offer much fantasy value outside of his speed.

    Kyle Schwarber May 23 6:20pm ET

    Chicago Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber hit his seventh home run of the season on Thursday versus the Phillies. Schwarber finished the game 2-for-4 with two runs, two RBI and a walk. Thursday was the eighth straight start for Schwarber in leadoff spot and he now has eight hits in 30 at-bats with a pair of home runs. For the season, Schwarber is hitting .233 with seven home runs and 17 RBI. Hes a good power option in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues and should score more runs if he stays at the top of the order.

    Jon Lester May 23 6:20pm ET

    Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester put together his worst performance of the year on Thursday versus the Phillies. Lester only last four innings and allowed seven runs (four earned), seven hits, one walk and struck out five. Even with the rough outing, Lester still owns a cool 2.68 ERA. The lefty will draw a tough matchups versus the Astros on Tuesday.

    Anthony Rizzo May 23 6:20pm ET

    Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo went 4-for-5 with a home run, three runs scored and 3 RBI on Thursday versus the Phillies. Rizzo has been seeing the ball well of late and is now hitting .274 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI.

    Robinson Chirinos May 23 6:10pm ET

    Houston Astros catcher Robinson Chirinos (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Chirinos has been surprisingly productive this season, so this appears to be just a routine day off. Max Stassi will cover behind the plate and bat eighth versus righty Lucas Giolito. Stassi won't be a useful option for DFS contests.

    Yonder Alonso May 23 6:00pm ET

    Chicago White Sox designated hitter Yonder Alonso has been dropped into seventh in the batting order on Thursday. The slugging lefty has been towards the top of the lineup throughout most of the season. However, Alonso is hitting just .178, so the White Sox feel he would do better lower in the order. Alonso is worth looking at in AL-only leagues, but that's about it right now.

    Eric Haase May 23 6:00pm ET

    Cleveland Indians catcher Eric Haase is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Haase was recalled from Triple-A on Wednesday because catcher Roberto Perez (concussion) is sidelined. Haase was swinging the bat well in the minors, so this promotion was earned. He'll bat seventh and draw the start behind the plate versus lefty Ryan Yarbrough. Haase won't be up long enough to warrant adding in fantasy leagues.

    From RotoBaller

    Travis d'Arnaud May 23 5:50pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays catcher Travis D'Arnaud (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Cleveland Indians. d'Arnaud has done basically nothing at the plate all season, so it's not surprising to see him taking a seat here. Erik Kratz will draw the start behind the plate and bat eighth versus righty Adam Plutko. Neither d'Arnaud nor Kratz need to be owned in fantasy leagues.

    Neil Ramirez May 23 5:33pm ET

    Cleveland Indians RP Neil Ramirez was sent outright to Class AAA Columbus on Thursday, May 23.

    Joey Rickard May 23 4:43pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles OF Joey Rickard was optioned to Class AAA Norfolk on Thursday, May 23.

    Charlie Blackmon May 23 4:43pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies OL Charlie Blackmon (calf) was taken out of the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday, May 23, due to a 'slight' issue with his right calf, according to's Thomas Harding.

    George Springer May 23 4:40pm ET

    Houston Astros outfielder George Springer (back) remains out of the starting lineup on Thursday. Jake Marisnick is once again in center field and is batting ninth, while Josh Reddick is leading off and playing right field against White Sox starting pitcher Lucas Giolito. Springer hasn't played since Sunday while dealing with lower back stiffness, but he's been working out in recent days and remains day-to-day. Hopefully he'll be back in the lineup on Friday and his fantasy owners can get him back into their lineups. Reddick, who is hitting .331/.384/.461 on the season, is a great DFS choice while he continues to hit leadoff with Springer out.

    Brandon Crawford May 23 4:33pm ET

    San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (illness) is expected to be sidelined Thursday, May 23, and Friday, May 24, due to a case of conjunctivitis, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

    Luke Voit May 23 4:30pm ET

    Although they needed a late rally in which they played a very small role in, the New York Yankees swept the Baltimore Orioles Thursday afternoon at Camden Yards. Arguably their most reliable player, Luke Voit, played a key role in the victory. The 28-year-old recorded two hits, but his biggest was a solo home run in the eighth that stretched his club's lead to four runs. While in the moment the home run simply appeared to be padding a lead, it would loom large, as the Orioles scored four in the same frame to tie the game. The Yankees ultimately prevailed, but the game was further evidence of Voit's worth on this first-place club.

    Keon Broxton May 23 4:30pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Keon Broxton is expected to join the team Friday in Colorado after being acquired from the Mets. Joey Rickard was optioned to Triple-A on Thursday to make room for Broxton. Broxton appeared in 34 games with the Mets but garnered only 53 plate appearances, hitting .143 with one double and two RBI. Broxton should see more consistent playing time with the non-contending Orioles, but still does not figure to be much of a fantasy asset.

    Yoenis Cespedes May 23 4:23pm ET

    New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) underwent ankle surgery Thursday, May 23, and has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2019 season.
