    Jeremy Hellickson May 21 2:50pm ET

    Washington Nationals starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson was placed on the injured list on Tuesday with a strained right shoulder. Pitcher Javy Guerra takes his place on the active roster. The Nationals are now without two-fifths of their Opening Day rotation with Anibal Sanchez out as well. Hellickson just pitched Sunday but the Nationals will soon need a starter to take his place. Joe Ross is one possibility, but nothing has been announced. Hellickson is 2-3 with a 6.23 ERA and 1.72 WHIP, losing all fantasy relevance. Even in NL-only leagues, he's waiver fodder, especially now that he's out hurt.

    Johnny Cueto May 21 2:40pm ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Johnny Cueto (elbow) impressed the coaching staff during his bullpen session on Saturday, and manager Bruce Bochy said there's a chance that the veteran hurler returns later this season. "He threw really, really well," Bochy said. "I think he surprised a lot of us with where he's at as far as his stuff, how hard he threw, his command." Cueto has lost around 20 pounds and looks to be in excellent shape during his rehab from Tommy John surgery. He has thrown five bullpen sessions and has also started throwing his changeup off flat ground. Even if Cueto returns this year, he won't be able to give fantasy owners more than a handful of starts in a best-case scenario.

    David Hale May 21 2:23pm ET

    New York Yankees RP David Hale was recalled from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, May 21. The team also optioned RP Nestor Cortes to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and transferred 3B Miguel Andujar from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list.

    Shohei Ohtani May 21 2:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (elbow), who is recovering from Tommy John surgery last October, is now throwing four times a week instead of three times. However, he still won't pitch at all in 2019 and is only throwing on flat ground and not at full intensity. In 48 at-bats this year, Ohtani is hitting .250 (12-for-48) with two home runs and eight RBI. He'll be plenty useful for his power/speed combination as a hitter in fantasy leagues after winning American League Rookie of the Year in 2018.

    Justin Upton May 21 2:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Justin Upton (toe) hasn't had any setbacks from with his left toe injury, but he also said he's still "a while" away from returning. His initial timeline of eight to 12 weeks hasn't changed, and he could be out roughly another month. Upton hasn't started running on flat ground but has been using a gravity-altering treadmill, which allows him to put only around 80 percent of his body weight on his feet. He's also been doing light throwing and swinging. He hit .257/.344/.463 with 30 home runs, 18 doubles and 85 RBI in 145 games last season and needs to remain stashed in all leagues. Brian Goodwin continues to man left field on most days in his absence.

    Zack Greinke May 21 2:10pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Zack Greinke (abdomen) will make his next scheduled start on Tuesday against the Padres after his MRI exam came back clean over the weekend. It's great news for his fantasy owners. Greinke is a must-start while going 6-1 with a 2.78 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 62 strikeouts in 64 2/3 innings over his 10 starts on the season. Fire him up at Petco Park for Tuesday night.

    Erick Fedde May 21 1:50pm ET

    Washington Nationals pitcher Erick Fedde will get the nod on Tuesday against the New York Mets. The 26-year-old will make his first start of the 2019 season after making five appearances (10 2/3 innings) out of the bullpen. Fedde has a 3.38 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 5.9 K/9 this year. He makes for a very risky fantasy streaming option since he's not stretched out and is unlikely to throw many innings against New York.

    Devon Travis May 21 1:40pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis (knee) had another setback and has yet to play in 2019 due to right knee soreness. He recently experienced more pain in his knee after ramping up the intensity of his workouts in Florida. He was sent to New York to be examined by Dr. Riley Williams, but not structural damage was found and Travis received a platelet-rich plasma injection to reduce inflammation. There is no timetable for his return. The 28-year-old has talent but has never been able to stay healthy in the majors. Travis has never played in more than 103 games in a single season and sports a career .274/.314/.437 slash line in 316 games over four seasons. You can continue to ignore him everywhere.

    Clay Buchholz May 21 1:40pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Clay Buchholz (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain of his teres major muscle, which is located in the upper back and right shoulder area. He's scheduled to receive a second opinion this week from Dr. James Andrews, but there is currently no timetable for his return. It's looking like he'll miss significant time if the original diagnosis is confirmed. Out for the foreseeable future, Buchholz can safely be dropped in most leagues now. The veteran right-hander was 0-2 with a 6.57 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings in his five starts for Toronto.

    Aledmys Diaz May 21 1:30pm ET

    Houston Astros infielder Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) is improving from a Grade 1 left hamstring strain that he suffered last Friday, and he could return to the lineup as soon as Tuesday. Manager A.J. Hinch said that Diaz will be back Tuesday "if all goes well." Diaz has been decent this year for Houston as a utility infielder, hitting .266/.307/.519 with five home runs and 21 RBI in 79 at-bats. He should continue to see playing time at the keystone until Jose Altuve (hamstring) is back from the injured list.

    Javier Baez May 21 1:20pm ET

    Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez (heel) will not start on Tuesday. Manager Joe Maddon announced the news on a local radio station and Baez remains day-to-day with a heel contusion. Its likely that Addison Russell will be at shortstop tonight versus Phillies starter Zach Eflin. Russell is no more than a dart throw in DFS Tuesday.

    Anthony Rendon May 21 1:10pm ET

    Washington Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon had another big game Monday night at Citi Field against the New York Mets. Rendon reached base safely all four times he came to plate, walking twice, hitting his ninth home run and notching his league-leading 17th double. Rendon has been a bright spot in a dark season for the Nationals, hitting .324 with an OPS of 1.141. It looks like the first All-Star appearance is in order for the third baseman. Rendon will continue to anchor fantasy lineups the rest of the year.

    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.
