Texas Rangers C Jack Kruger was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, May 10.
Arizona Diamondbacks RHP Taylor Widener (groin) threw a bullpen session on Monday, May 10, that manager Torey Lovullo said went well.
Houston Astros RHP Jake Odorizzi (arm) is set to throw live batting practice on Wednesday, May 12, as he continues to work his way back from a strained muscle in his throwing arm.
Los Angeles Angels 3B Anthony Rendon (knee) did some on-field work before the team's game Monday, May 10, and could be ready to return from the IL for the start of the team's series with the Boston Red Sox that begins on Friday, May 14.
Boston Red Sox RP Ryan Brasier (calf) threw a bullpen session over the weekend but still isn't close to starting a rehab assignment, according to manager Alex Cora.
Baltimore Orioles OF D.J. Stewart (hamstring) was not in the lineup Monday, May 10, but said he was experiencing less soreness in his left hamstring after being removed from the team's previous game.
Pittsburgh Pirates OF Bryan Reynolds (lower body) returned to the lineup on Monday, May 10, after missing the team's previous two games with lower-body soreness.
Pittsburgh Pirates starting Mitch Keller had a rough night on the mound on Monday, as he allowed seven runs on seven hits and two walks over 3 1/3 innings in a 14-1 loss to the Reds. Coming off his best start of the season in which he tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings against the Padres, Keller looked more like how he did in the month of April where he went 1-3 with an 8.20 ERA and 1.98 WHIP over five starts. His outing against San Diego looked like it could be a sign he was finally putting things together, but after Monday night it looks like that was a mirage rather than an indicator of future success. For now, managers can continue to ignore Keller in all formats.
Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Adam Frazier extended his hitting streak to 11 games on Monday night, finishing 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in a 14-1 loss to the Reds. Over his streak Frazier is hitting 15-for-45 with five doubles, five walks, one steal and four runs scored, as he is slashing .308/.384/.421 with 10 RBI and 16 runs scored on the year. He won't hit for much power, but for managers looking for help in batting average or OBP, Frazier is a good middle-infielder to target off the waiver-wire.
Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Jacob Stallings drove in the lone run for the Pirates on Monday night, finishing 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk in a 14-1 loss to the Reds. After a slow start to the season, Stallings has begun to turn things around this month, slashing .286/.400/.571 with one home run, three RBI and two runs scored over the last seven games. Stallings will have the most value in either NL-only leagues or in OBP formats, as he currently boasts a 20:17 K:BB ratio and .382 OBP this season.
Los Angeles Angels catcher Max Stassi (concussion) has been feeling better, but manager Joe Maddon said it's too early to know when Stassi will be cleared to return under the league's concussion protocol. Stassi was placed on the seven-day concussion list four days ago, but he may need more time before he's cleared to return to the starting lineup. The 30-year-old had been sharing time behind the dish with veteran Kurt Suzuki and was hitting .241 with a single home run in 32 plate appearances before his head injury. Stassi has some pop, but he's not all that useful in single-catcher leagues now that he's hurt and because of the fact that he was sharing time with Suzuki when he was healthy.
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds reached based four times on Monday night, finishing 2-for-2 with a double and two walks in a 14-1 loss to the Reds. After missing the past couple games while feeling banged up, Reynolds continued what has been a good start to May, as he is now slashing .333/.379/.667 with one home run, three RBI and three runs scored through his first seven games of the month. Reynolds is proving to be a good outfield option in most formats this season, especially in OBP formats as he is slashing .291/.381/.470 with three home runs, 14 RBI and 21 runs scored.
Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Chris Rodriguez (shoulder) hasn't started his throwing program but has been receiving treatment and doing strengthening exercises in the gym after being put on the injured list last Thursday with right shoulder inflammation. However, the Angels remain optimistic that it will be a short stay on the injured list for Rodriguez. The 22-year-old right-hander has looked solid so far this year in relief, posting a 2.30 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 17 strikeouts and eight walks in 15 2/3 frames over eight outings. He's also 2-0 with a 26.2 strikeout percentage. Rodriguez is a young arm to watch in the Angels bullpen, and he could see more high-leverage innings down the line if he continues to get it done.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (knee), who has been out since May 3 with a left knee contusion, took ground balls on the field before the game on Monday. Rendon could return from the injured list for the series against the Boston Red Sox that begins on Friday on the road. Manager Joe Maddon said that the 30-year-old is in good spirits with his health, so it looks like Rendon may not be gone that much longer for the Halos and fantasy managers. Rendon is hitting .276/.348/.466 with only three home runs and 11 RBI in 15 games for the Angels in his second season with the club. Rendon should be fine in the long run for his fantasy managers, but he just needs to get back on the field. Phil Gosselin and Jose Rojas have been equally splitting time at the hot corner with Rendon on the shelf.
Los Angeles Angels shortstop Jose Iglesias (back) was held out of the lineup for a third straight game on Monday against the Houston Astros. David Fletcher started in his place at shortstop while leading off against right-hander Luis Garcia. Iglesias remains day-to-day and could return to the lineup as early as Tuesday against Astros right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. Iglesias had a strong 2020 season with the bat and was hitting well before his injury, slashing .271/.289/.347 with two home runs and eight RBI in 118 at-bats. Fantasy managers that were riding his hot streak in deeper leagues will be hoping that he can keep it going when he returns, but you shouldn't have too high of hopes for the defensive whiz with just 37 career home runs over 10 big league seasons.
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani told manager Joe Maddon that he wants to be in the batting lineup on Tuesday against the Houston Astros, which would mark the third time hitting for himself on the same day he pitches this year after never doing it in the majors before 2021. He was held out for precautionary reasons his last two starts on the mound after being hit by a pitch on his right elbow and also while dealing with a blister on his right middle finger. Ohtani is expected to hit second on Tuesday and has been in the lineup for 32 of the team's 34 games this year. The 26-year-old two-way star has a 2.41 ERA with 30 strikeouts and 19 walks in 18 2/3 innings as a pitcher and entered Monday slashing .276/.326/.626 with 10 homers (tied for the league lead), nine doubles and 26 RBI in 31 games. Ohtani is a must-start on the mound and as a hitter in fantasy right now.
Baltimore Orioles third baseman Maikel Franco continued to struggle at the plate in Monday's 4-1 win over the Red Sox, going 0-for-3 with a walk. Franco is now hitting just .205 on the season after a solid 2020 season and has just three hits in his last 41 at-bats. While he may eventually start to produce at a solid level again, fantasy managers have plenty of better options available to them at this time.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder Ryan Mountcastle continued his hot May in Monday's 4-1 win over the Red Sox. Mountcastle went 2-for-4 with a single, a solo home run (his third of the season), and a strikeout. The 24-year-old had a very poor start to the season but is having a great May, batting .324 with two HR and five RBI. Fantasy managers who gave up on him earlier may consider giving him another chance at this point, as he is only rostered in 44 percent of leagues.
Cincinnati Reds second baseman Nick Senzel went 2-for-5 with a double, a run, and three RBI in a 14-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. Senzel is now hitting .256 with one homer, four doubles, 15 runs, eight RBI, and two steals across 90 at-bats. With the recent thumb injury to Joey Votto, Senzel has been getting starts at second base, a trend that should continue over the next month or so. He should pick up dual eligibility in most leagues in the near future, a bonus for fantasy gamers with him on their rosters. The Reds are making a trip to Coors Field to face the Colorado Rockies later in the week, making Senzel and the rest of his teammates excellent fantasy options this week.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman/outfielder Trey Mancini had a nice day at the plate in Monday's 4-1 win over the Red Sox, going 2-for-4 with a single and a solo home run. Mancini lined a six-inning Matt Andriese offering way over the center-field wall to put the O's ahead for good. Mancini started slow but has started to pick things up and is now slashing .252/.311/.452 with 29 RBI. Fantasy managers know his potential, so he should be in their lineups as long as he's producing.
