    Josh Donaldson May 15 10:10am ET

    Minnesota Twins third baseman Josh Donaldson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Athletics. Donaldson supplied the only offense of the night with the Twins' bats going quiet- as he belted a solo shot off of Frankie Montas in the sixth inning. The homer traveled 381 feet at an exit velocity of 104 MPH, one of two batted balls that was hit 100 MPH or harder by the veteran third baseman. Donaldson is slashing .279/.364/.488 with four homers and 14 RBI and is on-pace for the lowest strikeout rate of his career. He's hitting the ball harder than ever and could be on the verge of one of his finest big league seasons, so long as he stays healthy.

    Shohei Ohtani May 15 10:03am ET

    Los Angeles Angels RHP/DH Shohei Ohtani will be given extra rest before his next scheduled start because manager Joe Maddon feels that he has shown recent signs of fatigue. He had been scheduled to face the Cleveland Indians Tuesday, May 18, but it is currently unknown when he will make his next appearance on the mound.

    Adam Haseley May 15 10:03am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies OF Adam Haseley has returned to the club after being away for more than one month due to personal reasons. He will get back into game shape by working at the organization's minor league complex and then plans to play in minor league games.

    Cristian Pache May 15 10:03am ET

    Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) was activated from the injured list Friday, May 14. He replaced OF Cristian Pache (hamstring) on the active roster, after Pache was placed on the 10-day injured list due to right hamstring inflammation.

    Ender Inciarte May 15 10:03am ET

    Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) was activated from the injured list Friday, May 14. He replaced OF Cristian Pache (hamstring) on the active roster, after Pache was placed on the 10-day injured list due to right hamstring inflammation.

    Matt Shoemaker May 15 10:00am ET

    Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker took his fourth loss of the season in Friday's 6-1 defeat at the hands of the Athletics. Shoemaker pitched six innings but gave up five earned runs on five hits, striking out four while walking a pair. The nine-year veteran made it through four frames relatively unscathed but allowed a pair of two-run homers in the fifth and sixth. Shoemaker now owns a 6.62 ERA and is allowing a career-worst 2.6 home runs per nine innings. Given his injury history, it's not out of the question to suspect there's an underlying issue- though whether it's injury or ineffectiveness, he could soon find himself out of the rotation if he doesn't begin to put together some more consistent results. Shoemaker shouldn't be started in any formats in his next outing against the White Sox.

    Jakob Junis May 15 9:50am ET

    Kansas City Royals pitcher Jakob Junis was given a spot start in Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox. He struggled in the outing, lasting just 1 1/3 innings and allowing four hits and three runs (two earned) while striking out one. Junis started off the year strong and pitched his way into the starting rotation. He then struggled and was moved back to the bullpen, where his struggles continued. Over 11 games and 29.1 innings this year, he has a 5.52 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.

    Salvador Perez May 15 9:40am ET

    Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez helped the team break their 11-game losing streak in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox. Perez went 2-for-4 in the game with a three-run home run, his eighth home run of the year. He then went on to go 0-for-3 in the second game of the doubleheader. Following Friday's action, Perez is now slashing .280/.312/.500 over 38 games on the year. He leads the Royals in home runs, batting average and hits (42).

    Adrian Houser May 15 9:40am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Adrian Houser (3-4) allowed two runs on two hits and five walks over three innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against Atlanta. Three of Houser's five walks came during the third inning before Austin Riley plated a pair of runs with a single. He threw just 32 of 65 pitches for strikes in his shortest outing of the season. The 28-year-old righty now owns a 3.63 ERA and a 34:16 K:BB. Houser is projected to take the mound in Cincinnati next weekend. He's had a few good starts, and more than a few rough ones. He's certainly not a reliable option at this point until he finds more control.

    Luis Urias May 15 9:40am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Luis Urias went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Friday's 6-3 loss to Atlanta. Urias opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the second inning. He then knocked a solo homer in the ninth to cut Atlanta's lead to 6-2, tying the career-high four homers he hit in 2019. The 23-year-old infielder is sporting a .691 OPS with 17 RBI through the beginning of the season. He's a lower-end option in deeper leagues, but still has some room for offensive growth in Milwaukee as he progresses in his career. He's more valuable in keeper/dynasty formats.

    Jake Rogers May 15 9:40am ET

    Detroit Tigers catcher Jake Rogers went yard for his first home run of the year in Friday's game against the Chicago Cubs. It was a solo home run and his only hit on the day as he went 1-for-2 before being pinch-hit for in the ninth inning. Rogers has started three of the past four games for the Tigers with both Wilson Ramos (back) and Grayson Greiner (hamstring) on the injured list. Rogers should be the team's primary catcher in the interim while Ramos and Greiner are out. Eric Haase, who started on Thursday, is the team's current backup catcher. Rogers has gone 3-for-12 overall since his call-up last weekend. He isn't worth rostering in any fantasy leagues at this point.

    Chad Kuhl May 15 9:33am ET

    Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates RHP Chad Kuhl (shoulder) tossed a two-inning simulated game Thursday, May 13.

    Tyler Glasnow May 15 9:30am ET

    Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow struck out 10 batters in the Rays' 3-2 victory over the New York Mets on Friday. Glasnow went eight innings and yielded only five hits, one walk, and two earned runs. He did not factor into the decision. Over 57 1/3 innings pitched in 2021, Glasnow now owns a 2.35 ERA, a 0.87 WHIP, and has posted an incredible 85 strikeouts. As one of the best pitchers in MLB, Glasnow should remain active in all fantasy formats. He will next face the Orioles on Thursday in Baltimore in a salivating matchup against a free-swinging, strikeout-prone lineup.

    Tarik Skubal May 15 9:30am ET

    Detroit Tigers pitcher Tarik Skubal made his sixth start of the year on Friday against the Chicago Cubs and wound up with his sixth loss. He pitched six innings and allowed eight hits, one walk and four earned runs while striking out five. Over eight games and six starts this year, Skubal is now 0-6 with a 5.73 ERA and 1.58 WHIP. He has an even uglier xERA of 7.18 and his strikeout rate is down from 27.6% in 2020 to 20.4% this year. Skubal has a great deal of potential and should be held onto in all dynasty leagues. In all season-long leagues, however, he should be left on waivers. His next start will be on Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners.

    Josh Staumont May 15 9:30am ET

    Kansas City Royals relief pitcher Josh Staumont closed out the team's 6-2 win over the Chicago White Sox in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader. He pitched the ninth inning, allowing one walk and no hits while recording one strikeout. Staumont has received the last three saves for the Royals, though none of them have come in May as the Royals have been in the midst of a horrendous stretch. The team lost 11 consecutive games before winning Game 1 on Friday. Royals manager Mike Matheny has been tough to trust with his bullpen management, but Staumont clearly appears to be the frontrunner for save opportunities in Kansas City right now. He should be rostered in just about all fantasy leagues.

    Jose Abreu May 15 9:23am ET

    Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu (face, knee) is listed as day-to-day after sustaining a facial bruise and cut, as well as a bruised left knee, after a collision with Kansas City Royals INF/OF Hunter Dozier during the first game of a doubleheader Friday, May 14.

    Alex McRae May 15 9:23am ET

    Chicago White Sox RHP Alex McRae was called up from Class AAA Charlotte as the team's 27th man for the doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals Friday, May 14. He was sent back to Charlotte after the second game was over.

    Francisco Lindor May 15 9:20am ET

    New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in the Mets' 3-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday. Despite the poor performance on Friday at the hands of Rays' starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow, Lindor is still hitting .333 with one home run and four RBI over his past seven games (24 at-bats). Fantasy managers should look at Friday's performance as a mere hiccup at the hands of one of the league's best pitchers. While Lindor is still only batting .195/.311/.265 on the season over 113 AB, he has been heating up in May and should, accordingly, remain active in all fantasy formats.

    Anthony Santander May 15 9:13am ET

    Baltimore Orioles OF Anthony Santander (ankle) began a rehab assignment with Class AA Bowie Friday, May 14.

    Trent Grisham May 15 9:10am ET

    San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham went 1-for-2 with three walks and two runs scored in the Padres' 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday. Grisham raised his slash line to .292/.380/.487 on the season, over 113 at-bats, to go with five home runs and 12 RBI. Though Grisham's average has dipped slightly over the past seven games in which he is batting only .222, he has remained an on-base machine, posting a .344 on-base percentage over that same period. As the Padres leadoff hitter who has excellent on-base skills, and who can provide counting stats in the runs, power, and steals departments, he is a bona fide five-tool threat in fantasy. He should, accordingly, remain rostered and active in all fantasy formats.
