New York Mets left-hander David Peterson will make the start on Friday against the Texas Rangers after the team placed right-hander Chris Bassitt on the injured list with a non-injury issue. Peterson, who has a solid 3.10 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 50 strikeouts in 11 games (nine starts), will be on normal rest after not pitching since June 26. In that outing against the Miami Marlins, he allowed only two runs on four hits while walking none and striking out eight in seven strong innings. Peterson has a 3.35 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 44 strikeouts in 45 2/3 innings over his nine starts for the Mets, and you could certainly do worse than the southpaw as a streamer in fantasy on Friday night.
Baltimore Orioles first baseman Trey Mancini is not in the starting lineup on Friday against the Minnesota Twins. Mancini has now been out of Baltimore's lineup twice in the last three games after he was hit on the hand by a pitch last weekend. The 30-year-old's name has come up in trade talks recently, with the New York Mets interested in him, but as far as we know, no trade is imminent. His counting stats don't stand out, but Mancini has been solid for fantasy managers with a .280/.356/.421 slash line, seven home runs, 30 RBI and 30 runs scored in 295 plate appearances over 68 games. Ryan Mountcastle is at first base and is batting cleanup on Friday, while Anthony Santander is the designated hitter and is batting third against Twins right-hander Joe Ryan.
St. Louis Cardinals right-handed pitcher Jack Flaherty (shoulder) is set to undergo physical therapy over the next couple of weeks, according to Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak. After he completes physical therapy, he will be re-evaluated by the team. The 26-year-old was placed on the 15-day injured list due to a right shoulder strain on Monday. We don't have a clear timetable for him at this point, but based on this physical-therapy news, it certainly doesn't sound like this stint on the injured list will be a short one. If you're pressed for roster space right now, Flaherty is someone who can be let go. Despite the high upside he's shown in previous years, he faces a lot of obstacles towards becoming a significant fantasy contributor at some point this year.
The Detroit Tigers have activated starting pitcher Michael Pineda (finger) from the 15-day injured list. He will be the team's starting pitcher for Friday's series opener against the Kansas City Royals. The 33-year-old missed about a month and a half after fracturing his right middle finger. He made just five starts before the injury and went 1-2 with a 3.22 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. He could continue to maintain a solid ERA and WHIP throughout the year, but he offers little strikeout upside (just 12 strikeouts over 22.1 innings) and his win potential is low on the Tigers. To clear space for Pineda, the Tigers sent fellow right-hander Alex Faedo to Triple-A.
Detroit Tigers outfielder Riley Greene will be hitting leadoff for the first time in his career in Friday's game against right-hander Brad Keller and the Kansas City Royals. Greene, who is one of the top prospects in all of baseball, is off to a nice start to his MLB career. Over 10 games, he's gone 10-for-35 with a stolen base and seven runs scored. He's walked eight times while striking out just six times. The 21-year-old has just one extra-base hit so far (a double), but he certainly showed power potential in the minors. Last year, Over 124 games split between Double-A and Triple-A, he compiled 24 homers, 25 doubles and eight triples. He's worth a speculative add in just about all fantasy leagues if he's still out there on the waiver wire.
Kansas City Royals first baseman Vinnie Pasquantino will be hitting cleanup in Friday's game against right-hander Michael Pineda and the Detroit Tigers. The 24-year-old batted sixth in his MLB debut Tuesday, then hit fifth in his second game, so he's been inching his way in the right direction in the order. Over his first two MLB games, he went 0-for-5 with a pair of walks. We'll see if he can deliver his first major league hit on Friday. The youngster has a lot of eyes on him right now after he became one of the most talked-about prospects in the league. Over 69 games at Triple-A this year, he slashed .280/.372/.576 with 18 home runs, 67 RBI and 51 runs. Perhaps most impressively, he struck out just 36 times over that 69-game stretch while walking 37 times.
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Rich Hill (knee) stated that he felt a pop in his knee during his start against the Chicago Cubs on Friday. According to Red Sox manager Alex Cora, the team is currently waiting to find out how serious the issue is. In his post-game presser, Hill said that he put the team in a "tough position" while trying to pitch through the ailment. Hill's final line for the day was 4 2/3 innings, three hits, four walks, three earned runs and three strikeouts. The team wound up losing 6-5. He's tentatively scheduled to make his next start next Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Rays, but we should know more about his situation and his prospects of making that start soon.
Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Kyle Bradish (shoulder) threw on flat ground on Friday, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com. He is now slated to throw a bullpen session at some point in the next few days. Bradish has been on the injured list for a week due to right shoulder inflammation. The 25-year-old has struggled in his first taste of the majors this year. Over 10 starts, he's gone 1-4 with an ugly 7.38 ERA and 1.77 WHIP.
Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman/outfielder Gavin Lux is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against left-hander Blake Snell and the San Diego Padres. Chris Taylor will be in left field for the game with Max Muncy covering the keystone. Lux is coming off of a great month of June. He slashed .341/.389/.476 with one home run, six doubles, two stolen bases, five RBI and 11 runs across the month. Lux is hitting a stellar .292 on the season, but it's come with very little power (two homers, .388 slugging percentage) and only five stolen bases. He's been exclusively hitting in the lower third of the Dodgers' loaded line up and that's not likely to change. He'll likely continue to have some underwhelming counting stats despite potentially being a solid source of batting average.
Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Thomas Hatch will be the team's starting pitcher in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays. Kevin Gausman will be on the mound for Game 1. Hatch has spent the entirety of the 2022 season at Triple-A. He's made 12 starts and he's gone 4-4 with a 5.12 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. The 27-year-old has made 20 appearances (three starts) for the Blue Jays over the past two years and he's pitched to a 3.79 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.
The Detroit Tigers optioned starting pitcher Alex Faedo to Triple-A on Friday. The move was made to clear a roster spot for Michael Pineda (finger), who was activated from the 15-day injured list to start Friday's game against the Kansas City Royals. According to Tigers manager A.J. Hinch, Faedo's demotion was a strategic move to "lengthen out Alex's season." Hinch also added that Faedo would likely be back with the team for their upcoming doubleheaders on July 4 and July 11. The 26-year-old has seen his first MLB action this year. He had a strong 2.92 ERA over his first seven starts, but he really fell apart after that. Over his last three outings, he allowed a total of 14 earned runs over 11.1 innings.
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani (ankle) is going back on the injured list on Friday with right ankle inflammation. It's the same issue that cost DeSclafani two months already this season. Jason Vosler will now make the start on Saturday against the Chicago White Sox. Skipper Gabe Kapler said "there's real concern" with DeSclafani's ankle and said that "everything is on the table" when asked about possible surgery. Jakob Junis will be an option soon for the Gigantes rotation, but until then, the team might have to go with a couple bullpen games. DeSclafani has an ugly 9.95 ERA (21 earned runs) in just 19 innings over five starts, and he was plastered for seven earned runs in just 2 2/3 innings in his last start on Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds. It's been a disappointing year after he went 13-7 with a 3.17 ERA in 31 starts for San Fran in 2021.
San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado (ankle) is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Machado returned to action on Thursday as the DH after missing over a week, going 1-for-4 with a double, a run, and three strikeouts but will be sidelined yet again on Friday. The Padres are likely easing Machado back into action after his ankle sprain as there has been no indication that he aggravated the injury on Thursday. Saturday's lineup will be a good indication as to where Machado's ankle stands moving forward.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts (ribs) got in an on-field workout on Friday before his team's game against the San Diego Padres. Betts has been on the injured list since June 19 after injuring his ribs. Betts reportedly "felt good" after his workout and could possibly be activated from the injured list in the next few days. The All-Star outfielder is hitting .273 with 17 homers, 53 runs, 40 RBI, and six steals on the season.
Detroit Tigers left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (personal) remains without a timetable for a return to the field. Rodriguez has been dealing with a personal issue since the middle of June after going on the injured list earlier in the year with a rib injury. Team manager A.J. Hinch was asked about Rodriguez's status on Friday and did not provide an update, other than to say that Rodriguez is safe and is back at home in Florida with his kids. The southpaw has made eight starts for the Tigers in 2022, posting a 1-3 record, 4.38 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 34 strikeouts over 39 innings of work. At this point, it is anyone's guess as to when Rodriguez will return to the field.
Chicago White Sox right-hander Liam Hendriks (forearm) told reporters on Friday that he is expecting to be activated off of the injured list on Monday. Hendriks has been sidelined since June 10 after coming down with a forearm issue but fantasy gamers shouldn't be without him for much longer. The Chicago closer has appeared in 25 games in 2022, posting a 1-2 record, 2.81 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 16 saves, and 37 strikeouts over 25 2/3 innings of work. With Hendriks back in the fold, look for Kendall Graveman to head back to a setup role for the Sox.
San Francisco Giants third baseman Evan Longoria is not in the starting lineup for his team's game against the Chicago White Sox on Friday. Longoria will be replaced at third base by Jason Vosler, who will bat seventh. The 36-year-old Longoria has been on a hot streak at the plate of late, hitting .435 with three homers, seven runs, and six RBI over his past 10 games. Look for Longoria to return to action for Saturday's matchup when the Sox send right-hander Dylan Cease to the mound.
New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole had his Friday start against the Cleveland Guardians postponed due to inclement weather. Cole will instead take the mound in Game 1 of a Saturday doubleheader against Cleveland. The Yankees will then turn to lefty Nestor Cortes to square off against the Guardians for Game 2. Cole has pitched to a 6-2 record, 2.99 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 111 strikeouts over 87 1/3 innings for the Yankees this season. He will be a no-brainer fantasy option in all formats for Saturday's game.
Cleveland Guardians right-hander Aaron Civale had his Friday start against the New York Yankees postponed due to inclement weather. The Guardians and Yankees will now play a doubleheader in Cleveland on Saturday. Cleveland has yet to officially announce their pitching plans for Saturday, but expect that Civale will start one of the two games. Civale has struggled through an up-and-down season and will not be a recommended fantasy option in a tough matchup against the Yankees offense.
Detroit Tigers first baseman Spencer Torkelson was removed from Friday's game against the Kansas City Royals after getting hit in the head by a pitch in the seventh inning. Torkelson went 1-for-2 in the game before getting plunked in the helmet by an 88 MPH pitch from right-hander Brad Keller. Torkelson reportedly looked fine while walking off the field and into the dugout under his own power. Look for an update on the prized rookie sometime after Friday's game ends.
