    Chris Stratton May 24 9:43pm ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates RHP Chris Stratton (arm) was removed from his start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, May 24, with an apparent arm injury.

    Pedro Strop May 24 8:33pm ET

    Chicago Cubs RP Pedro Strop (hamstring) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, May 25.

    Scooter Gennett May 24 8:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds 2B Scooter Gennett (groin) began swinging a bat and participating in fielding drills this week. There is no timetable for his return.

    Anthony DeSclafani May 24 8:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Anthony DeSclafani struggled in a 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs on Friday. DeSclafani lasted just 3 2/3 innings while giving up four runs on five hits and three walks. He struck out just two batters in the outing but his offense got him off the hook, resulting in a no-decision. DeSclafani now has a 2-2 record, 4.99 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts in 48 2/3 innings of work. He was starting to show some promise in late April and early May, but the young right-hander has now allowed exactly four runs in each of his past four starts. He is shaping up more like a streaming option in plus matchups as opposed to an every-week, locked-in starter. He will face the Pittsburgh Pirates in his next start.

    Shohei Ohtani May 24 8:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani (finger) is back as the designated hitter on Friday and is batting third against Rangers left-handed starting pitcher Drew Smyly. Outfielder Kole Calhoun will take a seat against the lefty, with Brian Goodwin in right field and batting ninth. Ohtani was hit by a pitch in the finger earlier this week and was given a rest day on Thursday. He's hit .276 against lefties the last two years, but only two of his 26 homers have come against them. Goodwin has swung the bat well in 2019 but not against lefties, hitting .192 with no homers in 26 at-bats. Fade him in daily lineups Friday night.

    Yasiel Puig May 24 8:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yasiel Puig went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in a 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs on Friday. Puig had an RBI single and a two-run homer in the win. The veteran outfielder is hitting .213 with eight homers, 18 runs, 28 RBI, and seven steals on the year. He has hit just .192 over his past seven games after showing some signs of life at the beginning of the month. Puig has a ton of potential in his bat if he is able to get locked in at the plate.

    Nathan Eovaldi May 24 8:10pm ET

    Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) will throw another bullpen session on Saturday. Eovaldi threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday and is starting to ramp back up for a potential return in the middle of next month. The hard-throwing right-hander wasn't nearly effective in his first four starts to begin the year as he was last postseason. Eovaldi had a 6.00 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 21 innings for Boston in the month of April. He still has upside in most leagues, mainly in the strikeout department, so consider stashing him soon if you need the rotation help this summer.

    Brock Holt May 24 8:10pm ET

    Boston Red Sox infielder Brock Holt (shoulder) will play shortstop for Double-A Portland on Friday and could rejoin the team in Houston this weekend. Holt had just one hit in his 16 at-bats for the BoSox before his injury and he hasn't played since April 5. With Michael Chavis running away with the second base duties and Eduardo Nunez also in the fold off the bench, Holt isn't going to see much playing time in Boston when he does return. You can keep ignoring him in most leagues.

    Justin Upton May 24 8:10pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Justin Upton (toe) can now run on 100 percent of his weight and has been cleared for batting practice on the field and some outfield drills. Upton has been out all year due to turf toe, but he has cleared a big hurdle and is on track to make his season debut in the middle of June. The 31-year-old probably won't hit for a very high average anymore, but he still has 30-homer power in a full season and can make an impact in all fantasy leagues when he returns. If he was dropped by his previous owner, pick him up if he's available.

    Andrew Heaney May 24 8:00pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Andrew Heaney (elbow) will come off the injured list and make his season debut on Sunday against the Rangers, according to manager Brad Ausmus. When he's right, the 27-year-old left-hander can be the ace of the staff after he posted a 4.15 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 9.0 K/9 in 180 innings (30 starts) for the Halos in 2018. There's always the risk of an injury, but Heaney needs to be owned in all leagues. Starting him in his first game back against Texas is a little more risky, as he might not go long enough to qualify for a quality start. Heaney fanned 10 in 4 1/3 innings in a rehab start at Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

    Taylor Cole May 24 7:53pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels RP Jaime Barria was recalled from Class AAA Salt Lake Friday, May 24. The team also optioned RP Taylor Cole to Class AAA Salt Lake.

    Los Angeles Angels RP Jaime Barria was recalled from Class AAA Salt Lake Friday, May 24. The team also optioned RP Taylor Cole to Class AAA Salt Lake.

    Joey Votto May 24 7:50pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs in a 6-5 win over the Chicago Cubs on Friday. Votto also walked once in the win. The veteran first baseman is off to a sluggish start this season, hitting just .215 with a .668 OPS, four homers, eight doubles, 24 runs, and eight RBI. His power has all but evaporated while his 24.6% strikeout rate is the highest of his career. Votto is no longer an everyday fantasy first baseman and isn't even a must-hold in deeper mixed leagues.

    Khris Davis May 24 7:40pm ET

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Khris Davis (hip, oblique) will be shut down from swinging for five days. Davis was placed on the injured list on Friday, but it seems likely that he'll need more than 10 days to recover from an injury that has been bothering him since May 5. He is hitting .248 (39-for-157) with 12 homers, 23 runs and 29 RBI on the year and should be held in all leagues for his elite power. In his absence, both Chad Pinder and Mark Canha should see more playing time and are worth considering in deep mixed leagues.

    Dan Straily May 24 7:30pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Dan Straily has been removed from the starting rotation and will be available in relief starting on Saturday. Manager Brandon Hyde is hoping that Straily can perform better in short spurts, and there's a chance he can work his way back into the rotation. The 30-year-old has been the least effective starter in the majors this year, going 1-4 with a 9.09 ERA, 1.99 WHIP, 18 strikeouts, 17 walks and 14 home runs allowed in 34 2/3 innings over nine outings (eight starts). If you were holding him in a deep AL-only league, you can let go of him now.

    Chris Davis May 24 7:20pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Colorado Rockies. The O's are in an NL park, so they won't have a designated hitter in this contest. Trey Mancini will bat third and play first base versus righty Jeff Hoffman. Mancini is a fantastic DFS option for Friday against Hoffman who had an ERA of 7 plus in the minors. Mancini is in the heart of the order and is crushing the ball this season.

    Odubel Herrera May 24 7:20pm ET

    Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera has seen the bench quite a bit lately, and is sitting out once again on Friday. The red-hot Scott Kingery recently returned from the injured list and has taken over for Herrera in center field on multiple occasions. Herrera is hitting .218 this season and can't seem to find his groove. Jean Segura has shortstop covered, so the Phillies must find somewhere to put Kingery. It appears Kingery is going to play a lot of center field with Herrera struggling, so fantasy owners of Herrera should look for someone else.

    Christian Vazquez May 24 7:10pm ET

    Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Houston Astros. Vazquez has been off to a surprisingly great start to the season, so this is just a routine day off. Sandy Leon will draw the start behind the plate and bat eighth against lefty Wade Miley. Vazquez needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues, while Leon can be avoided.

    From RotoBaller

    Mitch Moreland May 24 7:10pm ET

    Boston Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Houston Astros. This is a routine day off for Moreland as he normally sits out against left-handed starters. Steve Pearce will draw the start at first base and bat fifth against Wade Miley. Pearce is hitting .171 with one home run, so he's not a fantasy asset right now.

    Nick Pivetta May 24 7:00pm ET

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Nick Pivetta could return to the Majors as early as Tuesday according to Pivetta has been in Triple-A since April 16 after starting the season with an 8.35 ERA in his first four starts of the season. Pivetta has been good since his demotion pitching to a 3.41 ERA with a 3.31 FIP. He has a 33.1 strikeout rate with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs and appears ready for another shot in the Majors. Phillies manager Gabe Kapler hasn't officially announced a starter for Tuesday but did say Vince Velasquez would be available out of the bullpen this weekend, indicating Pivetta should be the frontrunner to start vs St. Louis. He's worth an add in deeper leagues in case he lives up to the potential he showed last year that made him a trendy breakout pick during fantasy draft season.
