    Brendan Donovan Sat Jun 22 11:40pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals infielder Brendan Donovan went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 9-4 win over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday. He blasted a solo shot off Giants relieve Luke Jackson in the bottom of the seventh inning to put the Cardinals up 8-4. His home run traveled 422 feet with an exit velocity of 107.4 mph. The 27-year-old has now homered in three of his last four games. He is hitting .458 (11-for-24) with three home runs, eight RBI, and three runs scored over his previous five games. Donovan is slashing .262/.329/.415 with eight home runs, 37 RBI, and 34 runs scored in 70 games. Fantasy managers should continue to start Donovan in all league formats while he's on this torrid stretch.

    Zach Neto Sat Jun 22 11:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels shortstop Zach Neto (calf) was removed from Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers with left calf tightness. He injured himself on a sliding stop of a ground ball. The 23-year-old also fouled a ball off his leg earlier in the game. Neto was able to walk off under his power. He went 0-for-1 with a strikeout before exiting. Michael Stefanic replaced him in the fourth inning. The severity of Neto's injury is unknown, and he is considered day-to-day. Stefanic should see an uptick in at-bats with Neto sidelined, but he is not on the fantasy radar after slashing .231/.310/.269 over eight games in 2024.

    Chas McCormick Sat Jun 22 11:20pm ET

    Houston Astros outfielder Chas McCormick went 3-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs, a stolen base, and three total runs scored in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles. He took Corbin Burnes deep in the fifth inning to give the Astros a 4-1 lead. The 29-year-old later smashed another solo shot off Bryan Baker in the bottom of the eighth inning for the second long ball of the game. The 29-year-old had his best game of the season and is now slashing .225/.286/.358 over 133 plate appearances in 2024. McCormick has collected a hit in three of his last five games and can be used as a streamer while swinging a hot bat.

    Jon Berti Sat Jun 22 11:10pm ET

    New York Yankees infielder Jon Berti (calf) is showing improvements and could begin a rehab assignment in a "few more weeks." The 34-year-old was transferred to the 60-day injured list and won't be eligible to come off the injured list until around the All-Star break. "Hopefully, in a few more weeks here, he'll start to be ready for a rehab assignment, but it's a pretty good injury," said Yankees manager Aaron Boone. Berti is slashing .273/.322/.327 with a home run, six RBI, and six runs over 17 games in 2024. Fantasy managers outside AL-Only and deep-league formats can leave Berti on the waiver wire as he is expected to serve in a utility role once he is activated from the injured list.

    Isiah Kiner-Falefa Sat Jun 22 11:00pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs and a hit-by-pitch in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Guardians. He took Guardians right-hander Ben Lively deep in the top of the third inning for his first home run of the game. The 29-year-old later smashed another solo shot in the top of the eighth inning for his second long ball on Saturday. He has collected a hit in seven straight games, hitting .384 (10-for-23) with two home runs, five RBI, and three runs scored during the streak. Fantasy managers can use Kiner-Falefa as a streamer while he's wielding a hot bat.

    Patrick Sandoval Sat Jun 22 10:50pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels left-hander Patrick Sandoval (elbow) was placed on the 15-day injured with a left elbow strain. The Angels recalled reliever Guillermo Zuniga from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move. He exited Friday's start against the Los Angeles Dodgers after just 2 1/3 innings. Sandoval will be eligible to return from the injured list around the All-Star break. Before landing on the injured list, Sandoval owned a 5.08 ERA, 1.51 WHIP, and an 81: 35 K: BB across 79 2/3. Zuniga won't take Sandoval's spot in the rotation, and the Angels will look for a replacement for the southpaw in the next few days.

    Emmanuel Clase Sat Jun 22 10:30pm ET

    Cleveland Guardians Emmanuel Clase struck out one over a perfect inning to earn the save during Saturday's 6-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. The 26-year-old needed just 15 pitches to make quick work of the Blue Jays en route to his 23rd save. He owns a 0.74 ERA, 0.61 WHIP, and a 37 :3 K: BB across 36 1/3 innings. Clase is second in the majors with 23 saves behind only St. Louis Cardinals closer Ryan Helsley's 25 saves. Clase is one of the best relievers in the game, and fantasy managers should continue to roll with him in all league formats.

    Clayton Kershaw Sat Jun 22 10:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) reported soreness during Saturday's bullpen session. According to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, Kershaw's next rehab outing on Tuesday could be pushed back. The southpaw threw three innings during a rehab outing with Single-A on Wednesday and was scheduled to throw another rehab outing on Tuesday. The Dodgers will monitor Kershaw over the next few days. He owned a 2.46 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and a 137:40 K: BB across 131 2/3 innings in 2023. Fantasy managers should continue to stash Kershaw, who is expected to return sometime around the All-Star break.

    Drew Thorpe Sat Jun 22 10:00pm ET

    Chicago White Sox rookie right-hander Drew Thorpe (1-1) allowed two hits and four walks while striking out five over six scoreless innings to earn the win in Saturday's 5-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers. He cruised to his first victory by tossing six scoreless frames. The 24-year-old threw 94 pitches, landing 47 for strikes, including generating 10 swinging strikes. He owns a 5.02 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and a 9:11 K: BB across 14 1/3 innings in 2024. Thorpe will look to build on Saturday's performance and is mainly a streamer in deep leagues in a tough matchup against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday.

    Giancarlo Stanton Sat Jun 22 9:40pm ET

    New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) exited Saturday's game early against the Atlanta Braves. He will undergo imaging on Sunday to determine the severity of his hamstring injury. The 34-year-old grimaced in pain when rounding from third base to home in the bottom of the fourth inning. He went 1-for-2 with a double and a run scored before exiting. Trent Grisham replaced Stanton in the Yankees lineup during the bottom of the sixth inning. The imaging results will determine if Stanton will require a trip to the injured list, but he is now considered day-to-day. Grisham should see an uptick in at-bats with Stanton sidelined, but he is not on the fantasy radar after slashing .100/.257/.250 over 74 plate appearances in 2024.

    Daulton Varsho Sat Jun 22 7:20pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Daulton Varsho left the game Saturday with a back injury. In the ninth inning, he hit a ground ball and never made it out of the batter's box, immediately grabbing at his lower back. Manager John Schneider said after the game that Varsho was dealing with lower back tightness. Varsho is hitting .207 with 11 home runs, 35 RBI, eight stolen bases and 40 runs scored in 240 at-bats. Should Varsho be forced to miss time, look for Davis Schneider or Addison Barger to get a tick-up in playing time.

    David Bednar Sat Jun 22 7:10pm ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates closer David Bednar was unavailable Saturday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Rays, per manager Derek Shelton. He is dealing with left-side soreness. Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth and earned his second save. Bednar has three wins, 16 saves, a 5.17 ERA, and 32 strikeouts in 31 innings. It is unknown how serious the injury is, or how long Bednar might be out. Should he miss any time, look for Chapman to be the fill-in in the short term.

    Edmundo Sosa Sat Jun 22 7:00pm ET

    Philadelphia Phillies infielder Edmundo Sosa had negative X-rays on his sore elbow. He is listed as day-to-day with a contusion. Sosa was hit by a pitch by Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Scott McGough, left the game, and was replaced by Whit Merrifield. Should Sosa need to miss time, Merrifield could replace him in the lineup in the short term. Sosa provided a huge boost to the team when Trea Turner was out with a leg injury, hitting .281 with five home runs, 19 RBI, and three stolen bases in 139 at-bats.

    Alec Burleson Sat Jun 22 6:50pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Alec Burleson knocked in five runs Saturday against the San Francisco Giants, helping the Cards to a 9-4 victory. Burleson had three hits, two of which were home runs, and also added a walk and a stolen base. He is hitting .281 with 12 home runs, 30 RBI, three stolen bases and 30 runs scored on the season. Burleson hit his first homer off starter Jordan Hicks, a three-run shot, and the second homer off Sean Hjelle, a two-run blast. Burleson has recently moved to second in the lineup and the move has paid dividends for the Cardinals. Continue to start the hot-hitting Burleson in most formats.

    Luis Campusano Sat Jun 22 6:40pm ET

    San Diego Padres catcher Luis Campusano is going to the IL with an injured thumb. Manager Mike Shildt suggested that Campusano will only miss the minimum of 10 days. Catcher Brett Sullivan was called up from Triple-A to replace Campusano on the roster. Shildt said Campusano felt he would be good to play in a couple of days, but the team erred on the side of caution and did not want to be without a backup catcher. Campusano is hitting .234, with five home runs and 31 RBI this season for the Padres. Veteran Kyle Higashioka figures to get the bulk of the starts with Campusano on the IL.

    Yu Darvish Sat Jun 22 6:30pm ET

    Veteran right-hander Yu Darvish will return to the mound this coming Tuesday for the San Diego Padres against the Washington Nationals. Darvish has four wins, a 3.20 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and 53 strikeouts in 11 games started this season. He is set to come off the injured list, where had been placed with left groin soreness on May 29th. In his last rehab outing, Darvish threw only 49 pitches at High-A Fort Wayne, so he figures to be on a pitch count on Tuesday. The Padres currently sit at 40-40 eight games back of the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers, and will look for their ace to provide quality starts.

    Brandon Lowe Sat Jun 22 6:20pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe left the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates early on Saturday afternoon with a right foot contusion. He was removed from the game as a precaution and was replaced by Isaac Paredes. The injury is not believed to be serious and was suffered on a hit-by-pitch by rookie Jared Jones. Lowe is hitting .217 with five home runs and 22 RBI in 115 at-bats for the Rays this season. Consider him day-to-day at this point. Should he miss time, look for Amed Rosario or Richie Palacios to get a start or two in the meantime.

    Nolan Arenado Sat Jun 22 6:10pm ET

    Star third baseman Nolan Arenado of the St. Louis Cardinals left the Saturday afternoon game against the San Francisco Giants. He left the game due to left forearm discomfort, and there was no more information available after the game. This injury was not related to the hit-by-pitch Arenado suffered earlier in the week against Miami. It seemed he was in discomfort after being jammed on a pitch and grounding out. Jose Fermin replaced Arenado in the lineup. Arenado is hitting .257 with six home runs, 32 RBI and 26 runs scored in 272 at-bats. Should he be forced to miss time, perhaps Brendan Donovan could slide over to third base.

    Starling Marte Sat Jun 22 5:00pm ET

    New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte was removed during the second inning of Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs with right knee soreness. Marte has been battling knee issues over the past few weeks so having to be removed during a game is a bit concerning for the 35-year-old after already missing multiple games earlier this month. The right-hander has been having a solid season, hitting for a 117 OPS+ and an .834 OPS in the month of June. If Marte is to miss much time with his knee issue, fantasy managers should expect Tyrone Taylor to receive more starts. With a .626 OPS and two HR in 135 AB, Taylor is a much less appealing fantasy option and fantasy managers likely shouldn't consider adding him unless desperate in a deeper league.

    Jordan Romano Sat Jun 22 4:50pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays reliever Jordan Romano (elbow) was shut down from baseball activities by the team after experiencing soreness in his right elbow while throwing long toss on Friday. The shutdown is only expected to be for a few days but it marks a setback in Romano's recovery. The 31-year-old has been on the injured list since June 1st and missed the start of this season with elbow inflammation, adding to the Blue Jays' need to be cautious with any setbacks. Romano did not perform well while healthy, posting a 6.59 ERA in just over 13 innings while still leading the Blue Jays in saves with eight. In his absence, and with Yimi Garcia being placed on the injured list, Toronto has turned to Nate Pearson for their closer role. Fantasy managers in need of a closer should consider Pearson, though his 4.13 ERA isn't exactly appealing on the surface.
