    Alek Thomas Mon Jun 24 1:00pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Alek Thomas (hamstring) played seven innings in center field and had three at-bats on Saturday in the Rookie-level Arizona Complex League and said his hamstring felt good. After an off day on Sunday, Thomas will take live batting practice against right-hander Zac Gallen (hamstring) on Monday and then head to Triple-A Reno for a minor-league rehab assignment. The D-backs are hoping Thomas will join the big-league roster for the June 28-30 series against the visiting Oakland Athletics. The 24-year-old center fielder had been scheduled to come off the injured list on May 7, but manager Torey Lovullo said Thomas felt something in his left hamstring after playing in a rehab game on May 5. He then received a platelet-rich plasma injection to alleviate swelling on May 13. When healthy, Thomas is a defense-first player for the Snakes.

    Zac Gallen Mon Jun 24 12:50pm ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Zac Gallen (hamstring) is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session on Monday against outfielder Alek Thomas (hamstring). If everything goes well, Gallen could be reinstated from the 15-day injured list and return during the team's series against the Oakland Athletics from June 28-30. He was diagnosed with a strained right hamstring after his sixth pitch of the game on May 30 against the New York Mets. The D-backs later announced it was a Grade 1 hamstring strain for Gallen. Gallen was put on the injured list the next day. The 28-year-old has allowed a lot of hard contact so far in an injury-plagued season, but he still has fantasy ace potential when he's right, and the good news is he isn't dealing with an arm injury. Gallen should remain rostered in all fantasy formats with his return on the horizon.

    Dean Kremer Mon Jun 24 12:40pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said that right-hander Dean Kremer (triceps) not making it past the first inning in his minor-league rehab start for Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday was "not ideal." The low pitch count may require Kremer to make another rehab start before he's activated from the injured list and returns to Baltimore's starting rotation. The 28-year-old went 3 2/3 innings in his first rehab start but didn't get out of the first frame on Saturday while throwing 39 pitches. His short outing over the weekend means he probably is going to need another rehab assignment and won't make his return to the O's rotation until early July. When healthy, Kremer can be an effective deep-league streamer. He's currently 3-4 with a 4.32 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and a 49:18 K:BB in 50 innings and nine starts. Kremer's 23.7% strikeout rate is his highest since his rookie year in 2020.

    Ian Gibaut Mon Jun 24 12:27pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Ian Gibaut (forearm) has been working on his grip strength with his right hand. Once he reaches a certain level of progress, he will be cleared to begin a throwing program. Gibaut had surgery on May 9 to relieve a compression in a forearm nerve called the anterior interosseous nerve or AIN. Manager David Bell said that the 30-year-old could be cleared to return from the 60-day injured list in as soon as six weeks. He's been shut down all year to this point and will not be able to rejoin Cincy's bullpen until the second half of the season. The former 11th-round pick by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2015 out of Tulane went 8-4 with a 3.33 ERA (4.07 FIP), a 1.28 WHIP, a career-high three saves, a career-high 69 strikeouts and 28 walks in 74 relief appearances in his first full season with the Reds in 2023.

    Emilio Pagan Mon Jun 24 12:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds right-hander Emilio Pagan (lat), who was placed on the 15-day injured list on June 9 with a right-lat strain, is scheduled to undergo a new can on Monday to check his healing process. If everything goes well, Pagan could be cleared to begin a throwing program this week. However, the veteran reliever isn't expected to be back in the Reds' major-league bullpen until the second half of the season. When the Reds feel good enough about Pagan to bring him back from the injured list, he'll be serving in a late-inning setup role ahead of closer Alexi Diaz, giving him slight appeal in deep holds leagues. Before his injury, Pagan wasn't all that effective, posting a 4.43 ERA (4.18 FIP) and 1.38 WHIP with 26 strikeouts and seven walks in 20 1/3 innings out of the bullpen.

    Matt McLain Mon Jun 24 12:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds second baseman Matt McLain's (shoulder) most recent visit with his surgeon went well and he was "exactly where he wants to be," manager David Bell said on Sunday. However, no timelines were revealed for a target return date for McLain's progressions. He was cleared to resume throwing and running six weeks after his late-March shoulder surgery, but McLain hasn't been cleared yet to swing a bat. The Reds are taking it slow with the 24-year-old second-year player, although he's close to swinging a bat. Once he starts swinging, McLain will still have plenty of boxes to check before eventually going on what will be a lengthy minor-league rehab assignment. The first-rounder in 2021 out of UCLA could be ready to rejoin the big-league roster at some point in August, barring any setbacks along the way.

    Willson Contreras Mon Jun 24 12:10pm ET

    All signs are pointing to St. Louis Cardinals catcher Willson Contreras (forearm) being activated from the injured list and returning to the starting lineup ahead of Monday's series opener against the visiting Atlanta Braves. Contreras fractured his forearm on May 7 and was originally slated to return by the All-Star break. Instead, he could rejoin the team weeks ahead of his projected timetable. He went 1-for-5 in his sixth minor-league rehab game for Triple-A Memphis, and his true testing point was catching back-to-back games, which he did on Friday and Saturday. He came out of those games fine and escaped a scar on Saturday when he was involved in a collision at home plate. With Ivan Herrera (back) also on the IL, rookie Pedro Pages is likely to stick around as Contreras' backup moving forward.

    Will Benson Mon Jun 24 12:10pm ET

    X-rays came back negative on Cincinnati Reds outfielder Will Benson (elbow) after he was hit by a pitch in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox, according to manager David Bell. Benson went 0-for-3 and set a career-high hitless streak with an 0-for-21 slump before getting hit on the inside of his left elbow by a pitch in the bottom of the eighth inning. He stayed in the game to take first base but was eventually replaced on defense in right field by Nick Martini in the top of the ninth inning. The 26-year-old left-handed-hitting outfielder appears to have escaped a serious injury but he's unlikely to play on Monday for the series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates, especially with the team facing a left-handed pitcher. Benson's cold stretch has dropped his season slash line to .192/.287/.379 with eight homers, 22 RBI and nine steals in 214 at-bats.

    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.

    From RotoBaller

    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.
