    Marcus Stroman Aug 21 11:00pm ET

    After exiting Wednesday night's start following just four innings with a left hamstring strain, an update has emerged regarding New York Mets starter Marcus Stroman. The 28-year-old underwent an MRI which revealed only hamstring tightness and nothing further. The New York Mets are reportedly not worried about the prognosis, which means he could very well make his next start. In four innings of work against the Indians, Stroman allowed one run on five hits, with his team eventually picking up the victory in extra innings.

    J.D. Davis Aug 21 11:00pm ET

    Trailing in the 10th inning of Wednesday night's game against the Cleveland Indians, the New York Mets rallied to pick up their second consecutive victory at home. The game-winning hit came from first-year Met J.D. Davis, who ripped a game-winning hit to left with a 3-2 count. The hit capped off an action-packed 10th that saw both teams score a run each before Davis' plate appearance. The 26-year-old continued his hot streak at the plate, batting .385 with 19 RBI in his prior 30 games entering Wednesday.

    Casey Sadler Aug 21 10:23pm ET

    The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled RP Casey Sadler from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

    Dylan Floro Aug 21 10:23pm ET

    The Los Angeles Dodgers placed RP Dylan Floro (intercostal) on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday, Aug. 21 due to a left intercostal strain.

    Brandon Lowe Aug 21 10:23pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays INF Brandon Lowe (leg, quadriceps) was removed from his minor-league rehab game with Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Aug. 21 due to a left quadriceps strain. It's unrelated and separate from the bruised right leg which had him on the rehab stint. He will return to St. Petersburg for further testing.

    Brandon Lowe Aug 21 10:20pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Brandon Lowe (quadriceps) left the game at Triple-A Durham on Wednesday with a left quadriceps strain. It's unrelated to the bruised right leg he was recovering from initially. He's heading back to Tampa for tests, which means he'll miss even more time, although how much longer is unknown as of now. The 25-year-old was having a fine season before his injury, batting .276/.339/.523 with 16 home runs, 40 runs, 49 RBI and five steals. The Rays could certainly use his bat as they attempt to secure a playoff spot down the stretch. Lowe would be a nice asset down the stretch in fantasy leagues, too, but it remains to be seen if that will happen.

    Mike Minor Aug 21 9:50pm ET

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Mike Minor allowed six runs in 5 2/3 innings Wednesday night vs the Angels. Minor cruised through three innings before allowing two runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth before being removed from the game. Minor had gone at least seven innings in each of his previous three outings so this is likely just a blip on the radar for the big lefty who is having a strong season. Minor has a 3.17 ERA and a 4.05 FIP while generating swinging strikes at a very good 11.7 rate which has lead to 171 strikeouts in 167 2/3 innings this season. He'll look to bounce back against Tuesday when he'll get a rematch against the Angels in Southern California.

    Drew Smyly Aug 21 9:20pm ET

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Drew Smyly only lasted 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision at Fenway Park. Smyly only allowed two runs, but gave up five hits, three walks and left a bases-loaded jam the bullpen was able to bail him out of. Smyly made two excellent starts to begin his Phillies tenure, but since has allowed 16 earned runs in 19 1/3 innings as his ERA rose to 6.99 on the season. The left-hander has a very high 11.7 percent walk rate and allows 47.3 percent hard contact which makes it hard to predict these struggles will go away. With the Phillies struggling with pitcher depth they'll turn to Smyly again on Tuesday vs Pittsburgh, fantasy owners, however, can look elsewhere.

    Marcus Stroman Aug 21 8:53pm ET

    New York Mets RHP Marcus Stroman (hamstring) left the game early Wednesday, Aug. 21, because of left hamstring tightness.

    Marcus Stroman Aug 21 8:50pm ET

    New York Mets starting pitcher Marcus Stroman left his start Wednesday with left hamstring tightness, according to Tim Healey. Stroman pitched four scoreless innings but allowed five hits and only one earned run with a strikeout against the Indians before exiting the game. Stroman is having a nice season with a 3.18 ERA and 3.70 FIP but hasn't recorded a quality start now in four starts for New York. He should be considered day-to-day for now until the Mets provide an update on his injury.

    Griffin Canning Aug 21 8:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels RHP Griffin Canning (elbow) will be placed on the 10-day injured list because of elbow inflammation.

    Felix Hernandez Aug 21 8:40pm ET

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez (shoulder) will return from the injured list to start on Saturday against the Blue Jays. King Felix, hardly baseball royalty these days, will be making his first start since May 11. The veteran right-hander and future Hall of Famer doesn't have much left in the tank, though, and you'll want to steer clear of him in almost every fantasy league. The 33-year-old is 1-4 with an ugly 6.52 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 34 strikeouts in his 38 2/3 innings over eight starts. Look elsewhere.

    Toronto Blue Jays RHP Jason Adam was recalled from Class AAA Buffalo Wednesday, Aug. 21. The team also optioned RHP Sean Reid-Foley from Class AAA Buffalo.

    Matt Magill Aug 21 8:30pm ET

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Matt Magill allowed two runs without recording an out to blow the save Wednesday at Tampa Bay. Magill was tasked with protecting a one-run lead after the Mariners rallied in the top of the ninth, but faced four batters without recording an out as the Rays walked off with the win. Magill had gotten the previous two saves for Seattle and only allowed one hit and no runs in his previous five appearances, but clearly didn't have it this afternoon. Magill's recent success and 28.1 percent strikeout rate should get him another chance, but the Seattle closer job has been fluid most of the season so he'll need to bounce back in his next appearance. Magill should be owned in leagues where saves are scarce but has little value in any other format.

    Stephen Piscotty Aug 21 8:20pm ET

    Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that outfielder Stephen Piscotty (ankle) was pulled on Tuesday due to soreness in his ankle, but the outfielder is back in the starting lineup on Wednesday and is hitting sixth against Yankees left-hander J.A. Happ. Piscotty has been a pretty big disappointment in 2019, hitting .246/.308/.403 with 12 home runs, 44 runs and 42 RBI in 89 games and 345 at-bats. He was much more relevant in mixed leagues in 2018 when he clobbered 27 roundtrippers and drove in 88 in 151 games.

    Dustin May Aug 21 8:00pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Dustin May will move back to the starting rotation and start a game next week according to manager Dave Roberts. May had been pitching in relief, but Roberts said he will not pitch again until he makes a start. It is still unclear what day May will toe the rubber but it is good news for fantasy owners. May made three starts for the Big League club, all 5 2/3 innings long, and only allowed five runs total with 15 strikeouts before one terrible relief appearance skewed his numbers. In the minors, May pitched to a 2.30 ERA but only had a 19 percent strikeout rate. The lack of strikeouts limits his upside, but he is one of the top prospects in the Dodgers organization and is a good bet for a win with a strong lineup backing him. He's worth a speculative add in most leagues.

    Deivi Garcia Aug 21 7:50pm ET

    The New York Yankees are moving their top prospect, starting pitcher Deivi Garcia, to the bullpen for the rest of the year. The 20-year-old is currently pitching with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The move is a way to limit the young hurler's innings, and it'll be a way for the Yankees to see if they'd like to use the hard thrower in September in relief. He's already at a career-high 103 2/3 innings this year and has a 4.08 ERA across three minor league levels. Garcia is striking out 13.4 betters per nine innings and walking 4.4. He has a 5.01 ERA with 34 K's and 17 walks in 32 1/3 innings for Scranton. The youngster has impressive strikeout stuff, but he won't be much of a fantasy option in relief, especially if he can't limit his free passes.

    Dustin May Aug 21 7:50pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Dustin May will return to a starting role soon, according to manager Dave Roberts. May, the team's No. 2 prospect per MLB Pipeline, is 1-2 with a 4.26 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 19 innings over three starts and one relief appearance in his first taste of the big leagues. Gingergaard has plenty of upside in his right arm, but he isn't likely to reach that full potential the rest of the way. Still, he'll be an intriguing streamer in the right matchups in deep mixed leagues when he returns to a starting role.

    Emilio Pagan Aug 21 7:40pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays relief pitcher Emilio Pagan allowed three runs in one inning of work to blow a save vs the Mariners Wednesday. Pagan was called on to protect a two-run lead and promptly served up a homer to the first batter he faced. Things would go south from there as he put two men on base who would come around to score on a Mallex Smith triple. Pagan was able to escape further damage and was credited with a win after the Rays walked off in the bottom of the ninth. Pagan had only allowed one run in 8 2/3 innings pitched in August with five saves this month, but today he clearly didn't have it. Manager Kevin Cash is notorious for shuffling bullpen roles but Pagan's recent success should give him a little leeway when it comes to keeping the closer job.
