    Johnny Cueto May 19 2:03am ET

    San Francisco Giants RHP Johnny Cueto (elbow) reportedly threw very well during a bullpen session Saturday, May 18, and is in 'about the best shape I've seen him in,' according to manager Bruce Bochy, who added 'you've got to believe he'll be pitching before the season is over.'

    Shawn Kelley May 19 1:53am ET

    Texas Rangers RH Shawn Kelley (throat) recently revealed he underwent surgery Thursday, May 16, to have two lumps removed from his vocal cords. Doctors are in the process of performing a biopsy on the masses to determine if they are malignant and expect to know the results sometime next week.

    John Means May 19 1:20am ET

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher John Means fell to 5-4 in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Indians. Means pitched five innings, allowing three runs on five hits (including a two-run home run) and three walks with a strikeout. The 26-year-old has been a surprise success this season, posting a 2.68 ERA with 34 strikeouts and 13 walks in 43 2/3 IP. However, his 4.28 SIERA suggests that he has been getting lucky and that his numbers could regressive for the worse. He will next face the Rockies in dreaded Coors Field, where only but the best pitchers should be sat.

    Trey Mancini May 19 1:00am ET

    Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder provided the team's only run in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Indians, going 1-for-4 with a solo home run. Mancini took Adam Plutko deep for his 10th long ball of the season. Mancini has been the O's best offensive producer and fantasy option and now has a .310/.357/.571 slash line with 21 RBI. He should be in fantasy owners' lineups at all times.

    Danny Santana May 18 10:53pm ET

    Texas Rangers OF Danny Santana (ankle) exited against the St. Louis Cardinals after being hit by a pitch Saturday, May 18. X-rays came back negative, and he has been diagnosed with a bruised right ankle.

    Antonio Senzatela May 18 8:50pm ET

    Colorado Rockies pitcher Antonio Senzatela did his best to fool everyone into thinking he had a good outing on Saturday, but he let one too many runs sneak in to escape without the loss. Senzatela threw five innings of two-run ball while making the wrong end of a highlight reel as Bryce Harper murdered a ball more than 460 feet to center field, but he was lucky to get out of there with just those runs scoring. Senzatela allowed five hits and four walks in his five innings, allowing two baserunners in four of the five frames. Senzatela is the epitome of the Colorado pitcher of old, one who shouldn't be owned because runs have a way of magically appearing on the scoreboard out of thin air. That said, he should catch the light-hitting Orioles next outing, so truly desperate owners could roll those dice if they're real gamblers.

    David Dahl May 18 8:50pm ET

    Colorado Rockies outfielder David Dahl is currently hitting .296 after he went 1-for-4 on Saturday against Philly. He's living on borrowed time though. Dahl is sporting a strikeout rate of more than 33%, and he's being buoyed by a ridiculous .437 BABIP. He's hitting the ball softer than he ever has in the majors, he's walking less often than in previous seasons, and he's only hit three home runs, less than supposedly light-hitting teammate Raimel Tapia. It's not entirely clear what's holding Dahl back, though it's likely a health issue since he always has a health issue, but either way, owners should expect his pleasantly high batting average to drop precipitously in the future. If he can't find his way to more contact, his depressed power numbers may be waiting for the batting average to join them in Underperforming Land.

    Raimel Tapia May 18 8:40pm ET

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Raimel Tapia was the only member of the team to record more than one hit on Saturday against the Phillies. Tapia wasn't able to turn either single into a run scored as the Rockies lost, but he pulled his batting average up to .302 on the season and hit safely for the seventh time in the last eight games that he's started. Tapia is still officially in competition with Ian Desmond and David Dahl for playing time, but his performance has earned him five starts in the last seven days. His underlying numbers show some small spots of concern, like the fact that he's striking out 30% of the time and his BABIP is quite high, but his tendency to put the ball on the ground and his speed should help defend against too much regression on that front. For now, it looks like Tapia is a solid candidate for deep fantasy teams.

    Ryan McMahon May 18 8:20pm ET

    Colorado Rockies infielder Ryan McMahon was up against Garrett Hampson in spring training for the second base job, but he seems to have won that since Hampson's been sent down after a terrible first month. Unfortunately, instead of getting a breather, McMahon's just gotten more celebrated competition. Top prospect Brendan Rodgers was called up to play second base, and manager Bud Black has told reporters he intends to get a good long look at Rodgers. McMahon hasn't done anything impressive so far this season, but he may end up being another victim of the ridiculous game Colorado has played with their prospects. In previous seasons, youngsters like David Dahl, Raimel Tapia, McMahon, Hampson, and now Rodgers have all been jerked around between the minor and major leagues while playing time has instead been handed to poorly performing veterans like Ian Desmond, Gerardo Parra, Pat Valaika, Mark Reynolds, and Carlos Gonzalez. While it looks bad for McMahon at the moment, there's no predicting how Rockies management is really going to handle Rodgers and McMahon. Any believers should wait and see for now.

    Yasiel Puig May 18 8:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yasiel Puig went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. Puig ripped a two-run single off of Los Angeles starter Walker Buehler in the third inning. The veteran outfielder is now hitting .210 with seven homers, 17 runs, 25 RBI, and seven steals. He got off to a slow start this season but is hitting .273 over his past 15 games. Puig's power/speed potential makes him a solid option in all fantasy formats.

    Tyler Mahle May 18 8:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Tyler Mahle came through for his team in a tough matchup against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. Mahle pitched six shutout innings, striking out five and walking two on the way to winning his first game of the season. The young right-hander has pitched well this season but has just a 1-5 record to show for his efforts. Mahle will take a 3.51 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 54 strikeouts in 51 1/3 innings into his next start, which will come against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

    Houston Astros INF Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain and is considered day-to-day.

    Austin Meadows May 18 5:20pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Austin Meadows homered on Saturday afternoon, helping the Tampa Bay Rays pick up the 2-1 win over the New York Yankees. Meadows has had an excellent start to this season, hitting with a .355/.434/.688 slash with 14 runs, eight home runs, and 22 RBI in 26 games. Meadows should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

    Justin Miller May 18 4:50pm ET

Miller has had a solid start to the season before this injury, picking up one win with a 4.02 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 11 strikeouts in 15 2/3 innings. Miller should not be owned in any fantasy formats.
