    Chad Kuhl Thu Aug 18 7:43pm ET

    Colorado Rockies RHP Chad Kuhl (hip) is scheduled to make a rehab start for Class AAA Albuquerque Saturday, Aug. 20.

    Elias Diaz Thu Aug 18 7:43pm ET

    Colorado Rockies C Elias Diaz (wrist) was able to take swings Thursday, Aug. 18, and has been able to catch without pain.

    Danny Young Thu Aug 18 7:33pm ET

    Atlanta Braves LHP Daniel Young was outrighted to Class AAA Gwinnett Thursday, Aug. 18.

    Francisco Mejia Thu Aug 18 7:30pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays catcher Francisco Mejia isn't in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Kansas City Royals and right-hander Max Castillo. Even though Mejia has been hot at the plate lately, he's hitting .225 with 46 strikeouts against right-handers and .386 with five strikeouts against lefties, so is absence from the lineup makes sense. Midseason acquisition Christian Bethancourt will start in his place, batting seventh and suiting up behind the dish.

    Bryce Harper Thu Aug 18 6:40pm ET

    The Philadelphia Phillies moved outfielder Bryce Harper (elbow, thumb) to the 60-day injured list on Thursday to make room for outfielder Bradley Zimmer, who was claimed off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays. Harper is recovering from a fractured left thumb after undergoing surgery in late June, but his timetable hasn't changed at all. He's also recovering from a torn ligament in his right elbow, but the 29-year-old is fully expected to make it back before the end of the regular season next month. There's a chance that Harper could begin a minor league rehab assignment at some point next week. Fantasy managers need to keep last year's National League MVP stashed in all fantasy baseball leagues.

    Mike Soroka Thu Aug 18 6:30pm ET

    Atlanta Braves right-hander Mike Soroka (Achilles) will make his second minor league rehab start on Sunday for Triple-A Gwinnett. Soroka said he's feeling "great" after his first rehab start on Tuesday for High-A Rome, when he threw four scoreless innings on 45 pitches. The Braves aren't going to rush the 25-year-old back since he hasn't pitched in the majors since 2020, but he could be a difference-maker for Atlanta if he's able to return later this year or for the postseason. In his last full season in 2019 when he was an All-Star for the first time, Soroka went 13-4 with a 2.68 ERA (3.45 FIP), a 1.11 WHIP and a 142:41 K:BB in 174 2/3 innings over 29 starts. If you have room on your roster, he's definitely worth stashing if he's available on the waiver wire.

    Max Castillo Thu Aug 18 6:30pm ET

    The Kansas City Royals recalled right-hander Max Castillo from Triple-A Omaha on Thursday, and he'll make his first start with the team against the Tampa Bay Rays. The team's No. 17 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays in the trade that involved Whit Merrifield. The 23-year-old had a 3.05 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings in his first nine major league appearances (two starts) in Toronto this year. Castillo wasn't as sharp for Omaha after joining the Royals organization, but he could see multiple starts in KC's rotation with Brad Keller recently being moved to the bullpen. He doesn't have overwhelming stuff but relies on movement and deception against opposing hitters.

    Taijuan Walker Thu Aug 18 6:20pm ET

    There is increased optimism that New York Mets right-hander Taijuan Walker (back), whose MRI results showed a slight disc bulge in his lower back, can make his next scheduled start on Sunday against the division-rival Philadelphia Phillies. Walker called it "the worst pain I ever felt" and said he's "shocked" he's feeling this good two days later. The 30-year-old left his last start on Tuesday after just two innings, but his MRI exam didn't show any structural damage. It's great news for the Mets that the injury wasn't more serious, but he'll be a pretty risky fantasy play if he makes his next start on Sunday. In 21 starts in 2022, Walker has gone 10-3 with a strong 3.36 ERA (3.66 FIP), 1.20 WHIP, 85 strikeouts and 33 walks in 112 1/3 innings pitched.

    Omar Narvaez Thu Aug 18 6:20pm ET

    Milwaukee Brewers skipper Craig Counsell said that catcher Omar Narvaez (quadriceps) will probably return from the 10-day injured list on Saturday. In two games on his minor league rehab assignment for Triple-A Nashville, Narvaez has gone 3-for-8 with two RBI and a run scored, so he's nearing a return to the major league roster. The 30-year-old will return to primary catching duties for Milwaukee when he's activated. He's hit a very modest .237/.324/.363 with four home runs, 18 RBI and 17 runs scored for the Brew Crew this year in only 190 at-bats. Victor Caratini and Mario Feliciano have been splitting playing time behind the dish with Narvaez on the injured list.

    Brandon Marsh Thu Aug 18 6:10pm ET

    The Philadelphia Phillies placed outfielder Brandon Marsh (ankle) on the 10-day injured list on Thursday with a left ankle sprain. In corresponding moves, the Phillies claimed outfielder Bradley Zimmer off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays and moved outfielder Bryce Harper (elbow, thumb) to the 60-day injured list. Marsh's injured list stint is retroactive to Aug. 17. The 24-year-old injured himself while leaping at the wall on Tuesday and will miss at least the next 10 days. He's gone 8-for-32 (.250) with no homers, two RBI and two runs scored in his first 12 games in Philly after being acquired from the Los Angeles Angels at the Aug. 2 trade deadline. Marsh isn't a must-stash in mixed fantasy leagues.

    Elvis Andrus Thu Aug 18 6:10pm ET

    The Chicago White Sox signed free-agent shortstop Elvis Andrus to an undisclosed deal on Thursday after he was released by the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, according to sources. Andrus is expected to join the White Sox in Cleveland on Friday for the start of their series against the Guardians. Chicago has been using Romy Gonzalez, Lenyn Sosa and Leury Garcia at shortstop with Tim Anderson (finger) on the injured list, but Andrus should take over regular duties at the 6 moving forward. As a regular for the A's in 106 games this year, the 33-year-old veteran hit .237/.301/.373 with eight home runs, 30 RBI, 41 runs scored and seven stolen bases in 354 at-bats. Andrus doesn't have much upside these days, but the move to the Pale Hose does make him more attractive in deeper fantasy formats.

    Antonio Senzatela Thu Aug 18 5:03pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies RHP Antonio Senzatela (knee) suffered a knee injury of unknown severity as he attempted to cover first base against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday, Aug. 18. Manager Bud Black told reporters after the game that Senzatela will undergo an MRI on Friday, Aug. 19.

    Charlie Blackmon Thu Aug 18 5:03pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (hamstring) is considered day-to-day after suffering a hamstring injury on an infield hit in the first inning against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday, Aug. 18.

    Charlie Blackmon Thu Aug 18 5:00pm ET

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon isn't expected to land on the injured list after exiting Thursday's game with a hamstring issue. Manager Bud Black told Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post that the veteran will be okay in a couple of days. This comment casts doubt on Blackmon's availability for Friday, but he could be back in the lineup as soon as this coming weekend. The 34-year-old went 1-for-1 with a single on Thursday and has now logged a base hit in six of his last seven games. Expect Connor Joe to fill Blackmon's spot in the lineup for the duration of his absence.
