    Jose Hernandez May 12 10:00pm ET

    Houston Astros starting pitcher Jose Urquidy (shoulder) was pulled from Wednesday's matchup against the Los Angeles Angels. The 26-year-old lasted nearly four innings before exiting with what was described as a posterior shoulder injury. He has met expectations so far in 2021, compiling a record of three wins and two losses in addition to a 3.51 ERA throughout seven starts. While he is classified as day-to-day, it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume he could miss a game or two moving ahead.

    Mike Moustakas May 12 10:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds infielder Mike Moustakas went 2-for-3 with a homer, two runs, one RBI, and two walks in a 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday. Moustakas drew first blood with his solo shot in the second inning, taking Pirates starter Trevor Cahill deep. It was a welcome sight for Moustakas, who hadn't homered since May 2 and only has four long balls on the year. Moustakas will take a .235 average, 15 runs, and 12 RBI into Thursday's matchup against Colorado Rockies starter Chi Chi Gonzalez on Thursday. Hopefully the weekend series at Coors Field will jump-start his bat. On another positive note, Moustakas has been playing first base since Joey Votto fractured his thumb, so he could be close to gaining eligibility there in fantasy leagues.

    Nick Pivetta May 12 9:50pm ET

    Boston Red Sox pitcher Nick Pivetta was placed on the COVID-19 injured list on Wednesday. The righty has been on a roll in 2021, sporting a 3.19 ERA to go along with five wins and no losses. While his 24 walks are somewhat concerning, his 35 strikeouts throughout 36 innings place him near the top of the league. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor Pivetta's status over the next few days leading up to his scheduled start on Friday against the Los Angeles Angels.

    Didi Gregorius May 12 9:43pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies SS Didi Gregorius (elbow) left the game Wednesday, May 12, because of right elbow stiffness.

    Byron Buxton May 12 9:30pm ET

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton (hip) is expected to begin hitting in the cage on Thursday or Friday. Buxton was also cleared to throw and work with the strength and conditioning staff. Given that his timetable for a return was initially seen as "weeks" away, the star outfielder isn't close to being activated, though it is nice to see him taking some steps forward. Fantasy managers will hope that Buxton can progress through his recovery from the hip strain quickly, as he was vastly outplaying his ADP before the injury with a .370/.408/.772 slash line along with nine homers and five stolen bases.

    Christian Walker May 12 9:30pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Christian Walker (oblique) has landed on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain. This is not good news as the slugger has already missed time this season because of this same issue. Although he could make it back to the lineup within a few weeks, fantasy managers should plan for a more prolonged absence, especially since the injury has been nagging him for a while now. The 30-year-old is batting .203 this season to go along with 13 hits, seven runs, five RBI, and a homer throughout 64 at-bats. Although he does strike out more than fantasy managers would like, it is hard to replace the type of power he has displayed over the last few seasons.

    Kyle Freeland May 12 9:23pm ET

    Colorado Rockies LHP Kyle Freeland (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehab start with Class AAA Albuquerque Saturday, May 15. He is expected to throw 70 pitches during the start.

    Chad Kuhl May 12 9:13pm ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates RHP Chad Kuhl (shoulder) is scheduled to throw in a simulated game later this week.

    Didi Gregorius May 12 9:03pm ET

    Philadelphia Phillies SS Didi Gregorius (undisclosed) was removed from the game early Wednesday, May 12.

    Jon Gray May 12 8:50pm ET

    Colorado Rockies right-hander Jon Gray took the loss on Tuesday when he allowed four runs, one earned, on three hits with three walks and six strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a 5-3 loss to the Padres. Gray started Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader and pitched better than his box score would indicate. He kept the Pads off the scoreboard until the top of the fifth inning when Trent Grisham knocked an RBI single. He came back out for the sixth and issued a walk before an Alan Trejo error and another walk led to a bases-loaded jam. Gray was then yanked in favor of Robert Stephenson, who served up a grand slam to Victor Caratini. Even though he only surrendered one earned run, it was enough to saddle him with the loss. He still holds a stellar 2.93 ERA and 1.17 WHIP over 46 innings on the season. He'll get a rematch with the Padres, this time on the road, in his next turn.

    Alex Kirilloff May 12 8:43pm ET

    Minnesota Twins OF Alex Kirilloff (wrist) was cleared for weight room activities Wednesday, May 12, and is expected to test out some swings over the weekend.

    Alex Kirilloff May 12 8:30pm ET

    Minnesota Twins outfielder/first baseman Alex Kirilloff (wrist) has been cleared for weight room activities. It's clearly a good sign that he'll be allowed to lift weights, though a clearer picture of his availability for game action won't arrive until he attempts to swing a bat, which he is expected to do when the Twins return to Target Field this weekend. Kirilloff had clubbed four homers in three contests- and was working on a seven-game hitting streak before his wrist injury. Fantasy managers should stay tuned for updates on Kirilloff's health over the weekend, though it might be a good idea to have a contingency plan in place should the talented prospect require surgery.

    Nick Castellanos May 12 8:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Castellanos went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run in a 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday. Castellanos came around to score on Eugenio Suarez's 10th-inning double as part of a four-run inning. The veteran outfielder is hitting .310 with nine homers, 25 runs, 22 RBI, and one steal in 126 at-bats. Castellanos is unlikely to slow down anytime soon, as he is in the top 20th percentile in the league in hard-hit rate, expected batting average, expected slugging percentage, and expected weighted on-base average. He should continue to rack up quality numbers hitting in the middle of a solid Cincy lineup.

    Zac Gallen May 12 7:53pm ET

    Updating a previous story, Arizona Diamondbacks RHP Zac Gallen (elbow) said Wednesday, May 12, he doesn't think surgery will be needed.

    Edwin Rios May 12 7:53pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Edwin Rios (shoulder) will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum next week, according to the team Wednesday, May 12. He's expected to be ready for spring training in 2022.

    Sonny Gray May 12 7:50pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Sonny Gray allowed one run over 4 2/3 innings of work in a 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday. Gray struck out five and walked two in the no-decision. The veteran hurler needed 87 pitches to get through two outs in the fifth inning before departing. Gray didn't have his best stuff on Wednesday as he posted a very average 26% CSW (called strikes+whiffs) rate. It probably helped that he faced a weak Pittsburgh lineup. Gray will take a 0-2 record, 3.55 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 36 strikeouts in 25 1/3 innings into his next start, which comes against the San Francisco Giants.

    Josiah Gray May 12 7:33pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers RHP Josiah Gray (shoulder) will be shut down for 7-10 days due to a shoulder impingement, according to manager Dave Roberts Wednesday, May 12.

    Devin Smeltzer May 12 7:33pm ET

    Minnesota Twins LHP Devin Smeltzer (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, May 12, due to left elbow inflammation. RHP Shaun Anderson was recalled from Class AAA St. Paul in a corresponding move.

    Shaun Anderson May 12 7:33pm ET

    Minnesota Twins LHP Devin Smeltzer (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, May 12, due to left elbow inflammation. RHP Shaun Anderson was recalled from Class AAA St. Paul in a corresponding move.

    Devin Smeltzer May 12 7:30pm ET

    Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Devin Smeltzer (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday with left elbow inflammation, according to Do-Hyoung Park of Smeltzer had made only one appearance so far this year, tossing 4 2/3 innings of relief against the Pirates on April 24. With Smeltzer out, the Twins have recalled Shaun Anderson to take his place. For now, neither Smeltzer nor Anderson should be considered as viable options in fantasy.
