    Franmil Reyes May 21 11:00am ET

    San Diego Padres outfielder Franmil Reyes blasted his 15th homer Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Reyes two-run shot in the sixth inning determined the outcome in a tight 2-1 contest. Through 48 games, the 23-year-old slugger holds a sturdy .258/.299/.596 slash with 48 runs-plus-RBI. Reyes is both walking and striking out less this season but pummeling the ball with immense authority (.615 expected slugging). Hes one long ball away from the 16 he smacked during his 2018 rookie campaign in 121 fewer plate appearances. Solidified at right field on most nights, Reyes has evolved into a bankable power source in all fantasy formats.

    Austin Riley May 21 11:00am ET

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Austin Riley was 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk during a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. The 22-year-old, who was mashing with Triple-A Gwinnett to start the season, now has a ridiculous .409/.435/.864 slash line through his first 22 at-bats in the big leagues. He also has three HRs and six RBI over that span. If Riley is somehow still hanging out on the waiver wire, he is worth an immediate add in almost all formats.

    Chris Paddack May 21 10:50am ET

    San Diego Padres starter Chris Paddack picked up his fourth win Monday, tossing six innings of one-run ball against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Paddack relinquished five hits and zero walks in 89 pitches while striking out seven. The Sheriff remains good as advertised, rocking a 1.93 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 28.5 percent strikeout rate in 51 1/3 frames (nine starts). Paddack has walked one or less in eight outings and holds a spectacular 5.1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Having never surpassed more than 91 innings in the minors and coming back from Tommy John surgery, Paddack could have his innings capped later in the season if the Padres fall out of contention, but hes currently a bonafide must-start in all formats. He lines up to battle the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday at the Rogers Centre.

    Mike Soroka May 21 10:50am ET

    Atlanta Braves starter Mike Soroka allowed one run on two hits through two innings of work during a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Monday. He struck out seven batters without walking any. The 21-year-old now has a 5-1 record to go along with a sensational 1.01 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 41/14 K/BB rate. The former first-round pick is unquestionably one of the top young arms in baseball. Soroka has a tougher matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals in his next outing, but he is worthy against any team at this point.

    Sean Newcomb May 21 10:50am ET

    Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb fired a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save during a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants. It was the first save opportunity of the year for the 25-year-old. Newcomb, who was demoted to Triple-A Gwinnett back in April, has not allowed a run yet in seven appearances out of the Braves' bullpen. Luke Jackson still factors into the ninth-inning duties, but if the Braves are not planning on putting Newcomb back into the rotation, it is wholly possible he earns his fair share of save opportunities. Fantasy managers can pick him up if they are desperate for saves, but it may be better to wait and see who earns the next opportunity.

    Ronald Acuna Jr. May 21 10:40am ET

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna was 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and a walk during Monday's 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants. Acuna has been raking since returning to his regular leadoff spot, as he owns a .333 average with five HRs, 11 RBI, and two stolen bases across his past 15 games. The 21-year-old is one of the most exciting young players in baseball and has a potent lineup backing him up. He is arguably one of the most valuable players in dynasty formats and can be started without question every time he takes the field.

    J.T. Realmuto May 21 7:50am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto hit a solo home run in the tenth inning to lead the Phillies to a win Monday night in Chicago. Realmuto also had an RBI single in the game and has now homered in back-to-back games. Realmuto has settled in nicely with his new team sporting a career-high 43.7 percent hard-hit rate and leads all catchers with 30 runs scored. He's one of only a few players capable of being a true difference maker at fantasy baseball's weakest position. The righty swinging catcher will look to keep his hot streak going in his next three games at the Cubs, who are scheduled to start lefties in all three games.

    Miguel Sano May 21 7:20am ET

    Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday. Sano's two-run shot in the eighth inning broke a 1-1 tie and wound up being the difference in the ballgame for Minnesota. The veteran slugger was just activated from the injured list last week and is off to a bit of a slow start, hitting just .190 with two homers and five RBI. Sano remains an intriguing fantasy option considering his power potential in a loaded Minnesota lineup.

    Blake Parker May 21 6:30am ET

    Minnesota Twins closer Blake Parker pitched a scoreless ninth to lock down a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday. Parker worked around one hit in the frame on the way to earning his eighth save in eight chances this year. Overall, Parker has a 1.10 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 12 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings of work this season. He occasionally loses a save chance to lefty Taylor Rogers, but Parker continues to operate as the team's preferred ninth-inning option. His main issue this season has been the fact that the high-powered Minnesota lineup hasn't played in many close games this season. Still, he remains a quality fantasy closer in all formats.

    Jake Odorizzi May 21 6:20am ET

    Minnesota Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi pitched five scoreless innings in a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday. Odorizzi struck out six and walked two but had to settle for a no-decision. The veteran right-hander has been excellent for Minnesota this season, posting a 6-2 record, 2.38 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts in 53 innings of work. Keep Odorizzi active for his next start, which will come against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.
