    Wander Franco May 5 5:20pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco, the top prospect in baseball, finished 3-for-5 with a triple, two singles, two RBI and a steal in his first game action with Triple-A Durham on Tuesday night. Franco hit .327 across two minor league levels in 114 games in 2019. He has been rated with the highest hit tool by scouts, and the Rays have worked on his defensive versatility in order to keep his bat in the lineup every day. He has primarily played shortstop in his career, but Tampa Bay has given him repetitions at second and third base at the alternate training site. We'll continue to keep an eye on baseball's best prospect as the summer nears, but if Franco continues to hit at Triple-A, we could see him make his major league debut sooner rather than later.

    Kevin Gausman May 5 5:10pm ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Kevin Gausman, who was placed on the injured list on Tuesday because of side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine, will return to pitch on Saturday against the San Diego Padres. "[Gausman's] feeling good," manager Gabe Kapler said. "I don't have concerns about his ability to make his next start and give us a full workload." The 30-year-old right-hander has been one of the best pitchers in baseball after the first month of the season, sporting a 2.04 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP over 39 2/3 innings so far in 2021. While the Padres have one of the more dangerous lineups in baseball, Gausman has been a must-start fantasy asset, although he'll be a bit more risky in his next start.

    Reyes Moronta May 5 5:10pm ET

    San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Reyes Moronta (forearm), who experienced right forearm tightness on Saturday, will be evaluated by team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki on Thursday. Moronta missed all of last season while rehabbing from right shoulder surgery before he went on the injured list on April 11 with a right flexor strain. Just when it looked the Giants might get Moronta back earlier this week, he had a setback last weekend. It remains to be seen how much longer the 28-year-old reliever will be out, but expect the Giants to remain patient here. Moronta allowed just one run on a homer while striking out two in four innings of work in relief before his injury this season.

    Ruben Tejada May 5 5:03pm ET

    Free-agent INF Ruben Tejada signed a minor-league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday, May 5.

    Ryan Eades May 5 5:03pm ET

    Free-agent RHP Ryan Eades signed a minor-league contract with the Houston Astros on Wednesday, May 5.

    Richard Rodriguez May 5 5:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates relief pitcher Richard Rodriguez earned his fifth save of the season on Tuesday, pitching a perfect ninth inning to close out a 2-1 win over the Padres. Rodriguez has looked great on the mound to open the year, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out 10 in 12 1/3 innings of work. His Statcast numbers show that his success has been legitimate this season, as his .116 xBA, .160 xwOBA and 0.99 xERA all rank in the 100th percentile in the majors. Managers should grab him if he's still available in their league, but be prepared as he will likely be on the move at the trade deadline and may not end up in the closer role for the team he ends up with.

    Ian Happ May 5 5:00pm ET

    Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ (ribs) will remain sidelined on Wednesday versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. Happ suffered bruised ribs after a collision with infielder Nico Hoerner on Sunday and sat out Tuesday's doubleheader. The good news is that it doesn't appear that Happ will require a trip to the 10-day injured list. Happ remains day-to-day and will be replaced by outfielder Jake Marisnick. Marisnick is having a nice season in limited opportunities and is hitting .271 with three home runs and 12 RBI. The veteran will bat eighth on Wednesday and draws a tough matchup versus Walker Buehler.

    Miguel Sano May 5 5:00pm ET

    Minnesota Twins first/third baseman Miguel Sano (hamstring) was activated from the injured list on Wednesday. Sano has been eligible to return since Saturday, though the team effectively kept him off the roster for several extra days to give him time to fine-tune his mechanics at the plate. The slugger's return comes at a good time for a Twins team that will be down Luis Arraez (concussion) and Alex Kirilloff (wrist) for at least the next week. Sano will start at first base and bat eighth against Rangers' left-hander Hyeon-Jong Yang on Wednesday. Sano was batting just .111 with only two homers before the injury, though he did post the lowest strikeout rate and highest walk rate of his career through 15 games, so hopefully, the time off will help him get his swing going.

    Joey Votto May 5 5:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto (thumb) will miss several weeks after breaking his thumb during Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Chicago White Sox. Votto was plunked on the thumb by a pitch and initially tried to stay in the game, leading to some speculation that he would be okay. He was eventually removed and replaced by Kyle Farmer at first base. According to manager David Bell, "It's going to be weeks for sure" when asked about how long Votto would be out. MLB.com's Mark Sheldon mused on Twitter that the team could move Nick Senzel from center field to either second or third base, Mike Moustakas to first base, and activate Shogo Akiyama to play center field to cover the loss of Votto, although that is just speculation at this point. Votto's loss will be felt as he was hitting .226 with five homers, nine runs, and 17 RBI in 106 at-bats.

    Johnny Cueto May 5 5:00pm ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Johnny Cueto (lat), who has been on the 10-day injured list since April 16 with a Grade 1 lat strain beneath his right shoulder, is expected to be activated and return to the mound on Sunday against the San Diego Padres. It's uncertain what his return will mean for Logan Webb, who has been filling in for Cueto. Anthony DeSclafani will go on Friday in the series opener, while Kevin Gausman will pitch on Saturday. Cueto had a 1.80 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 20 innings with only four walks in three starts before his injury. Since April 16, San Fran's starters have a 2.44 ERA, the best in baseball during that span. While he's looked like vintage Cueto so far this year, fantasy managers should be wary about using him in his first game back against the potent Padres offense.

    Sonny Gray May 5 5:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Sonny Gray threw seven shutout innings in a 1-0 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday. Gray racked up eight strikeouts and walked two batters in the no-decision. The excellent outing lowers Gray's ERA to 3.92 with a 1.35 WHIP and 31 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings of work. Gray had his good stuff working in the outing as he posted a 33% called strikes+whiff rate against a quality White Sox lineup. The veteran hurler remains an excellent fantasy option for his next start, which comes against a weak Pittsburgh Pirates offense.
