Cleveland Indians catcher Roberto Perez was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Athletics with an undisclosed head injury. He was 0-for-2 on the night and is getting further evaluated on his injury as a concussion is always in play for backstops. Perez has been hitting surprisingly well in the power department this season clubbing six homers and 14 RBI providing some value in two-catcher formats, but he doesn't offer much in single-catcher leagues. Expect the Indians to update his status later this evening as a call-up for prospect Eric Hasse could be looming.
Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett (groin) has joined the team on their road trip, but Gennett and Reds manager David Bell said the earliest possible return date (Sunday) is out of the question. Gennett is guessing a couple more weeks, but he doesn't have an exact timetable for his return. The plan was for Gennett to hit off a tee on Tuesday. The issue isn't hitting, so the real test will be running and moving laterally. He'll eventually need a rehab assignment and possibly a short one. He's yet to play in 2019 but should remain stashed in all leagues after hitting 40 home runs and driving in 189 runs the last two seasons. Gennett's return could mean a move to the bench for the struggling Jose Peraza.
The Pittsburgh Pirates lifted catcher Francisco early in Tuesday's game versus the Rockies after taking a pitch in his neck area. He had sat in the last four games giving way to Elias Diaz behind the dish, but the team hadn't announced anything wrong with him health-wise prior to this evening as they may have given him a mental break. Cervelli was 1-for-2 on the evening but has hit a disastrous .185 this season with one home run. His removal from the game is concerning given his lack of play recently and look for the Pirates to update his status post game. Owners in single-catcher leagues can cut bait on the veteran even if he doesn't need an IL stint.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Ender Inciarte hasn't begun any baseball activities yet as he sits on the IL with a lumbar strain. The 28-year-old is expected to be out of the Braves lineup for about another month, and he may be relegated to a bench role upon arrival. With Austin Riley crushing it at the big league level, the team doesn't need to rush Inciarte who may wind up as the fourth outfielder on a crowded depth chart. He's been underwhelming this season hitting just .218 with two homers and three steals and can be left off the mixed league radar.
San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers is taking a seat Tuesday as the team squares off against Zack Greinke and the Diamondbacks. To say Myers is having a disappointing season would be an understatement as he's slashing .228/.296/.414 with seven homers in 46 games for the Friars. He's struck out at an alarming 37.7% of the time as he's been moved down to as low as the eighth spot in the order in recent games. Myers biggest knock against him has been his inability to stay on the field as he's proved to be a top producer when on the diamond, but this year is an exception. Owners should remain patient with the 28-year-old as there's plenty of season left, but it's hard not to be at wit's end.
Tampa Bay Rays catchers Mike Zunino (quadriceps) and Michael Perez (oblique) continue to progress from their respective injuries. Zunino has been hitting and doing light squatting, while Perez has been limited to hitting off a tee due to minor discomfort when he swings. Both players think they could be back in the lineup in the next couple of weeks. Zunino is the fantasy relevant player of the two. He'll never help you in average but has desirable power upside and should see the majority of starts behind the dish when he's healthy. Travis D'Arnaud and Erik Kratz are holding down the fort in the meantime.
Tampa Bay Rays infielder Matt Duffy (hamstring) is eligible to come off the 60-day injured list on Monday and is getting closer to a return to the lineup. He has played third base, shortstop and left field during his rehab assignment and was set to play seven innings in left field on Tuesday for Triple-A Durham. With Yandy Diaz at third base and Brandon Lowe at the keystone, it looks like Duffy will return to a super-utility role for the Rays, which will obviously limit his fantasy appeal to single-universe leagues.
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco (finger) was scratched from the lineup on Tuesday with "finger discomfort" that he suffered after jamming a finger in his left hand on Sunday. Make sure to remove Polanco from your daily lineups on Tuesday and consider him day-to-day moving forward. The left-handed hitter got a late start to the season due to offseason shoulder surgery, but he's hit .280/.344/.512 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 82 at-bats and should be in your lineups each time he's playing.
Washington Nationals manager Dave Martinez referred to starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson's (shoulder) injury as "tendinitis." Hellickson said he felt "OK" after throwing with a doctor's blessing after landing on the injured list on Tuesday. It might be a quick return for the 32-year-old veteran, but fantasy owners should leave him to the waiver wire in most formats. Hellickson is 2-3 with a 6.23 ERA, 1.72 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 39 innings over eight starts in nine outings. There's just not much left in his arm these days.
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall (calf, finger) is away from his minor league rehab assignment for non-injury reasons, according to manager Clint Hurdle. Outfielder Corey Dickerson (shoulder) is scheduled to throw to the bases on Tuesday. Chisenhall hasn't played since May 15, so it's obviously a concern as he tries to work his way back to make his season debut. He'll likely be in a platoon role in a corner outfield spot against right-handed hitters whenever he makes his return. Dickerson had just 13 at-bats before landing on the injured list this year, but he's getting close to a rehab assignment. Keep an eye on him in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.
Oakland Athletics outfielder Khris Davis (hip) left the game early on Tuesday with what the A's are calling lingering effects from his hip contusion. The 31-year-old just can't seem to shake his hip injury, so there's an increasing likelihood that he'll need to go on the injured list. Davis grounded out meagerly in his only plate appearance on Tuesday and is hitting .248 with 12 home runs and 29 RBI on the season. It makes sense for the A's to play it cautiously and sideline him for a while. If Davis does miss extended time, Mark Canha should benefit the most from added playing time out of the designated hitter spot in Oakland.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies is not in the starting lineup on Tuesday. Johan Camargo will start at second base and bat eighth against Giants starting pitcher Shaun Anderson on Tuesday evening. Albies has slowed down in May, hitting .218 (17-for-78) with a homer, nine RBI and one steal, so hopefully this day of rest will help clear his head. It's a nice matchup for Camargo, but he's still a desperation daily selection in a hitter-friendly ballpark in San Fran.
Baltimore Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said that starting pitcher Alex Cobb (back) remains in Florida and his return to the team is "open-ended." Back problems have haunted the veteran right-hander all year. Cobb is 0-2 with an ugly 10.95 ERA, 1.87 WHIP and eight strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings over his three starts. Even when he returns, fantasy owners are going to want to avoid the 31-year-old in a hitter-friendly home environment on one of the worst teams in baseball.
Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session and could face live hitters on Saturday. The 21-year-old southpaw is the team's No. 1 prospect and is ranked as the second best left-handed prospect in all of baseball, so he's worth a stash in most leagues for his upside. He should get an opportunity to pitch out of the team's starting rotation in the second half of this season.
Oakland Athletics starting pitcher A.J. Puk (elbow) will throw another simulated game on Friday, while starter Jharel Cotton (elbow) will make another rehab start for High-A Stockton on Wednesday. Puk, the team's No. 2 prospect and No. 4 left-handed prospect in baseball, should be an option for the team's rotation in the second half of the year and should be stashed in deeper leagues and dynasty formats for his upside. Cotton, 27, will also become an option for Oakland's rotation this summer, although he doesn't miss nearly as many bats and will mostly be in play in AL-only leagues if he's starting games. He allowed two runs while striking out three and walking one in 2 2/3 innings in his first rehab start.
Houston Astros infielder Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday after suffering a left hamstring strain last Friday. He is starting at second base and is batting sixth against White Sox starter Dylan Covey. Diaz has hit well (.266, five homers and 21 RBI) in limited playing time this year in his first season in Houston and is a worthy option in AL-only leagues while Jose Altuve (hamstring) recovers from his injury. Altuve could return next week, so Diaz will likely go back to his utility role.
Tampa Bay Rays infielder Joey Wendle (wrist) will undergo X-rays on Wednesday and is hoping to be cleared to increase his baseball activities. Wendle has been out since late April and is hitting just .136/.240/.182 with no homers and two RBI in his 22 at-bats on the season. He should be able to return sometime next month, but his playing time will be firmly in question with Yandy Diaz in the fold at third base and Brandon Lowe at the keystone.
Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox outfielder J.D. Martinez (illness) is out of the lineup on Tuesday because he's sick. It helps explain why he hasn't played in the last two games, so his fantasy owners can relax a little bit. The 31-year-old continues to mash this year, hitting .308/.390/.521 with nine home runs, 28 runs and 29 RBI in 169 at-bats. Get him back into all lineups when he returns, which hopefully will be on Wednesday.
Toronto Blue Jays RP Ryan Tepera (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow impingement Tuesday, May 21. The team also recalled RP Jimmy Cordero from Class AAA Buffalo.
The Miami Marlins placed infielder/outfielder Jon Berti (oblique) on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday with a left oblique strain and called up outfielder Austin Dean from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding move. Berti was shaken up after crashing into the outfield wall trying to make a catch on Sunday. The earliest he can return will be May 29. He was hitting .237 with two home runs, four RBI and a stolen base in 22 games for the Fish and wasn't much of a fantasy option, even in NL-only affairs. The 25-year-old Dean hit .227 with a homer and six RBI in 22 at-bats in six games this year and will provide outfield depth in Miami.
