    Luisangel Acuna Mon Jun 24 10:30am ET

    New York Mets infield/outfield prospect Luisangel Acuna logged three hits for Triple-A Syracuse Sunday, extending his hitting streak to 10 games in a torrid stretch. During his 10-game hitting streak, Acuna has five multi-hit games. The 22-year-old is hitting .312 in June and has raised his season-long batting average to .271. The Mets No. 5 prospect has shown off the wheels with 26 stolen bases this year. His pure hitting ability and above-average speed make him a great future fantasy contributor. Acuna could get a look for New York at some point this season and when he does is worthy of waiver-wire consideration in leagues of all sizes.

    Jackson Jobe Mon Jun 24 10:20am ET

    Detroit Tigers top pitching prospect Jackson Jobe (hamstring) touched 99 miles per hour on his fastball as he fired three scoreless innings in a rehab start Sunday for High-A West Michigan. Jobe threw 32 pitches (24 for strikes) as he struck out four with no walks. It was an encouraging sign as the talented right-hander works his way back from a hamstring injury. The 22-year-old is one of the top minor-league arms with a devastating fastball-slider combination. His progress this year has been stalled a bit because of his injury but he is on the mend and could reach Triple-A by the end of the season should he demonstrate full health. Next year could be the year for him in Detroit and he has the tools to contribute to fantasy teams right away.

    Justin Crawford Mon Jun 24 10:10am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies outfield prospect Justin Crawford logged two hits, including a triple, for High-A Jersey Shore on Sunday. The No. 4 prospect for the Phillies is hitting .290 with four homers and 30 RBI to go with 24 stolen bases at High-A this season. The 20-year-old is a speedster just like his father and long-time big-leaguer Carl Crawford and possesses 75-grade speed. He also has a 55-grade hit tool, making him a nice fantasy prospect with the potential to contribute heavily in runs, average, and stolen bases. Crawford could be looking at a few more seasons in the minors but all signs point to a quick progression based on his performance at High-A this season.

    Jackson Ferris Mon Jun 24 10:00am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers pitching prospect Jackson Ferris scattered two hits and a walk and struck out eight in six scoreless innings Sunday for the High-A Great Lakes Loons. The left-hander has been very effective in June with a 2.11 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in four starts. He has 32 strikeouts and 10 walks over 21 1/3 innings this month. The 20-year-old has a 60-grade fastball and curveball combination making him an intriguing prospect. The No. 6 prospect in the Dodgers system is making a case for a promotion this year but is still viewed as being a few years away from the majors. One of the top left-handed pitching prospects in baseball, it will be worth monitoring Ferris as he progresses through the minors.

    Jeffrey Springs Mon Jun 24 10:00am ET

    Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Jeffrey Springs (elbow) made his third minor-league rehab start with Triple-A Durham on Sunday, striking out three batters over 2 1/3 innings of work. Springs did allow one earned run on two hits and one walk on Sunday, but he was more importantly able to stretch out to 42 pitches in the outing. Because Springs previously had a brief setback due to left shoulder/lat tightness during his recovery from Tommy John surgery, he's unlikely to be available to the Rays and fantasy managers until sometime after the mid-July All-Star break. The 31-year-old left-hander gave up just one run with a sharp 24:4 K:BB over 16 innings in Tampa Bay's rotation last season and is still well worth stashing in most competitive leagues.

    Matt McLain Mon Jun 24 9:50am ET

    Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell said before Sunday's game against the visiting Boston Red Sox that second baseman Matt McLain (shoulder) is "exactly where he wants to be" in his recovery from left shoulder surgery. McLain is close to resuming swinging, according to Bell, but he remains without a clear timetable for a return to the Reds. With a lengthy ramp-up process and minor-league rehab assignment likely to happen before McLain is an option for fantasy managers, the young infielder is unlikely to be much of a factor until sometime in August. Jonathan India is Cincy's everyday second baseman until McLain is back in the fold, slashing .326/.418/.488 with three home runs, five doubles, 18 RBI, and two stolen bases over his last 27 games, and he's worth a look in all leagues.

    Devin Williams Mon Jun 24 9:40am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers closer Devin Williams (back) has a mound session on the schedule for Wednesday before the club's series finale against the visiting Texas Rangers. That keeps him on track to be pitching in the major leagues sometime in late July if all goes well, considering it's set to be the most significant step forward in Williams' throwing progression to this point in his recovery from stress fractures in his back. The 29-year-old right-hander won the Trevor Hoffman Award as the best closer in the National League with 36 saves and a 1.53 ERA for the Brewers last year, so he needs to be stashed in all fantasy leagues. In the meantime, the flame-throwing Trevor Megill has saved 15 games with a 1.93 ERA and 28:7 K:BB over 25 appearances for Milwaukee and should be rostered in all formats.

    Matt Shaw Mon Jun 24 9:30am ET

    Chicago Cubs infield prospect Matt Shaw had another big performance for Double-A Tennessee on Sunday. Shaw, the No. 42 prospect per MLB Pipeline went 2-for-4 with three runs, five RBI and a home run in a loss. Shaw's homer was his third in the last six games and he is now hitting .245 with 10 homers, 33 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 65 games. Shaw has been a big bright spot for the Cubs system this season and quietly has become of the of better prospects in all of baseball. The 2023 first-round draft pick has shown the ability to make consistent contact off both righties and lefties and also has some pop in his bat. Shaw was drafted as a shortstop, but he is likely to wind up at third base with Dansby Swanson and Nico Hoerner holding down the middle of the infield for the Cubs. The Cubs offense has been ugly this season and that could lead to the team considering Shaw more and more as the season goes on. Even if Shaw doesn't make his debut in 2024, there is a strong chance that he could be wearing blue pinstripes in 2025. He should be rostered in dynasty leagues and a name for redraft managers to remember heading into next season.

    Nick Lodolo Mon Jun 24 9:30am ET

    Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Nick Lodolo's (finger) pitching in Sunday's start against the visiting Boston Red Sox was impacted by a blister on his index finger. "The feeling for the ball was not the same, but it's not impacting me a ton. Definitely a little bit. I'll work to get it right", Lodolo said following the game. Limited to just 76 pitches on Sunday against Boston, Lodolo gave up three earned runs on five hits and a season-worst four walks. It's too early to tell if this issue will affect the 26-year-old southpaw's status for Saturday's scheduled appearance against the division-rival St. Louis Cardinals, but it's certainly something for the Reds and fantasy managers to monitor this week. Lodolo now has a 2.96 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 73 strikeouts and 19 walks over 70 innings in Cincy's rotation this year.

    Fernando Tatis Jr. Mon Jun 24 9:20am ET

    San Diego Padres outfielder Fernando Tatis Jr. (triceps, quad), who exited Friday's game after being hit on the left elbow, was available in Sunday afternoon's game against the visiting San Diego Padres in the right situation, manager Mike Shildt said. Tatis remains day-to-day with the elbow and the quad injury he's been playing through. It sounds like the Padres and fantasy managers should have a good chance of getting Tatis back into their lineups for Monday's series opener against the Washington Nationals in San Diego, but considering he's banged up with multiple issues at the moment, there's always a chance he could sit out another game or so to recuperate. There's more apparent concern about the 25-year-old superstar's quad problem, which has lingered for most of the year.

    Tink Hence Mon Jun 24 9:00am ET

    St. Louis Cardinals pitching prospect Tink Hence (undisclosed) left Sunday's start after one inning. Sunday's start was the first for Hence since he was sidelined on June 5 with tightness in his chest, shoulder, and side. It's never a good sign when a pitcher re-injures themselves right after returning from being banged up, but more should be known on the situation as Monday goes on. Hence, 21, is the Cardinals top prospect and has put together a strong season at Double-A Springfield. On the season, Hence is 4-2 with a 3.29 ERA to go along with 73 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings. Hence has never thrown more than 96 innings in a season, and the longevity of the season could also be catching up with the youngster. When healthy, Hence possesses the stuff of a potential middle of the rotation starter. For now, Hence remains a hold in dynasty leagues and just a name for redraft managers to file away.

    Noelvi Marte Mon Jun 24 8:50am ET

    Cincinnati Reds infield prospect Noelvi Marte continues to struggle as he works towards his return to the big leagues. Marte went 0-for-4 on Sunday and is now 7-for-49 with two RBI and a stolen base for Triple-A Louisville. Marte has struggled mightily as he is shaking off some of the rust from serving an 80-game suspension for a performance enhancing substance. Marte was expected to return to the Reds when his suspension is over, but that is three days away and the club may elect to see him prove something before handing him a spot on the big-league spot. Marte was a Top-25 prospect last season and can provide both power and speed when he is at the top of his game. With his potential, he is worth rostering in most formats, but expectations should be managed until he can get going.

    James Wood Mon Jun 24 8:40am ET

    Washington Nationals outfield prospect James Wood returned from a hamstring injury last week and has not missed a beat. Since returning, Wood, a consensus Top-5 prospect has gone 3-for-12 with a home run, two RBI and four walks in four games. Prior to landing on the seven-day injured list, Wood was carving up Triple-A pitching. On the season, the 21-year-old has dominated with an incredible .348 batting average to go along with 10 homers, 33 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 178 at-bats. Wood has shown that he has not been overmatched by Triple-A pitching and it should only be a matter of time before he forces his way onto the big-league roster. As one of the best prospects in the game, Wood should be rostered or stashed in all formats.

    Josh Naylor Mon Jun 24 1:40am ET

    Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor continued his strong season on Sunday, going 3-for-5 with a homer, a double, two runs scored, and an RBI. Naylor became the fifth major leaguer this season to hit 20 dingers with his fourth-inning shot. The 27-year-old is enjoying a breakout season where he has found his power stroke. Although his batting average is lower than usual at .244, he has the aforementioned 20 homers to go along with 58 RBI and an .835 OPS. He is easily a top-ten first base option in fantasy and is a must-start player.

    Luis Severino Mon Jun 24 1:40am ET

    New York Mets starting pitcher Luis Severino had his best start of the season on Sunday Night Baseball against the Chicago Cubs, throwing six shutout innings to pick up his fifth win of the season in a 5-2 victory. Severino was firing on all cylinders in this one, allowing just three hits and striking out ten while walking none. It was his first double-digit strikeout effort of the season and the first time he allowed no runs in a start. Some fantasy managers in deeper leagues may have given up on Severino after a bad start against the Texas Rangers last week, and he is worthy of an add in those formats. In standard size leagues, taking a shot on Severino could make sense if pitching is a need, but he will have to show this more often to become a must-roster player.

    Spencer Horwitz Mon Jun 24 1:30am ET

    Toronto Blue Jays infielder Spencer Horwitz went 2-for-3 with a pair of homers in a 6-5 loss to the Cleveland Guardians on Sunday. Horwitz did his part to give his team a chance to win this one, getting on base four times, scoring three runs, and driving in two. The 26-year-old has been dynamite since his call-up on June 8, batting .366 with a 1.041 OPS in 41 at-bats. He has consistently been hitting at the top of the Jays order, and that should continue given the struggles of the rest of their lineup. He is a solid waiver wire option in deeper leagues, especially points leagues given his ability to get on base at a high rate.

    Colt Keith Mon Jun 24 1:30am ET

    Detroit Tigers second baseman Colt Keith had a big game on Sunday, going 4-for-5 with a homer, a double, three runs scored, and three RBI in an 11-2 thumping of the Chicago White Sox. Keith, like the rest of the Tigers lineup, feasted on White Sox starter Jonathan Cannon, homering off him in the first before hitting an RBI double in the second. Although it was a nice game for the youngster, he still has a long way to go before he can be considered in any redraft fantasy format. He does have two four-hit games in the past eight days, so he should be placed on watch lists in deeper formats for now.

    Blake Snell Mon Jun 24 1:20am ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) labored through his first rehab start on Sunday, tossing 1 innings while allowing two runs on three hits. He didn't strike out a batter and walked three. It wasn't the appearance that Snell or the Giants were looking for and shows that he's going to need at least one more rehab start before he can return to the big league team. It's been a bit of a disaster season for Snell, who signed with the Giants late and hasn't been able to find his midseason form. Injuries haven't helped his cause, but that doesn't excuse the abysmal 9.51 ERA and 1.94 WHIP Snell has this season. Fantasy managers who own Snell know that he can turn it on at any point and look like a Cy Young candidate, but he will need to do that soon to salvage this season.

    From RotoBaller

    Robbie Ray Mon Jun 24 1:10am ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Robbie Ray (elbow) continued his rehab assignment in Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, throwing 45 pitches in 2 IP. He allowed one hit and one walk while striking out a pair. Ray is in the process of a long rehab stint that is acting as his Spring Training. He will likely need a few more starts to build up his pitch count before he can return to the Giants, which will hopefully come at some point in July. Savvy fantasy managers should be looking to stash Ray, especially in leagues where IL spots are available.

    Edwin Diaz Mon Jun 24 1:00am ET

    New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz was ejected from Sunday's game against the Chicago Cubs after a routine check for illegal substances. Diaz was about to enter in the ninth inning and was looking to preserve a 5-2 lead and lock down another save before a typical check by the umpiring crew led to him being tossed from the game. The fireballer will now face the automatic 10-game suspension that comes with every sticky stuff ejection. It's a tough loss for both the Mets and Diaz's fantasy owners, who will have to look for alternatives to get into their lineups for saves this week.
