Yasmani Grandal Out of Lineup Wednesday

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Yasmani Grandal is getting a routine day off on Wednesday. Backup catcher Manny Pina will bat sixth.

Nick Markakis Sitting Wednesday

Atlanta Braves outfielder Nick Markakis is out of the team's lineup on Wednesday, his first off day since June 29. Matt Joyce takes his right field spot and will bat eighth against Milwaukee Brewers starter Chase Anderson.

Jonathan Schoop Not in Wednesday Lineup

After exiting Tuesday's game with an apparent injury, Minnesota Twins second baseman Jonathan Schoop will take a seat for Wednesday's matchup against the New York Mets. Luis Arraez will play second base and bat ninth against Mets starter Jason Vargas. The left-handed Arraez is no DFS bargain in that ninth spot against the left-handed Vargas,... Read More

Welcome to the All-Star Break edition of Power Hitting Risers & Fallers. All stats are full season through Monday, July 15 (unless otherwise noted).

Evan Longoria Exits With Foot Discomfort

San Francisco Giants third baseman Evan Longoria left Sunday's matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers due to foot discomfort. That's a pretty generic injury so we will see how this story develops. Longoria, 33, is on the back end of his career, but has wielded an average bat this season, hitting .239/.317/.446. Having AT&T as a... Read More

Rowdy Tellez Optioned

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Rowdy Tellez was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo Sunday. Tellez had an .804 OPS as recently as May 23, but since then he has hit just .195/.238/.373 in 34 games. Tellez was losing playing time as well, which had reduced his ownership to mostly AL-only rosters. With the news of his... Read More

Jonathan Lucroy To Miss Three Weeks

Los Angeles Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy will miss roughly three weeks with a broken nose and concussion. Lucroy suffered the injury in his collision with Jake Marisnick on July 7, one that Marisnick induced. Lucroy is hitting just .237/.307/.364 this year, with seven home runs and 30 RBI in 73 games. There is no real... Read More

Maikel Franco Walks It Off For Phillies

Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco hit a walk-off home run off Washington Nationals reliever Matt Grace in Sunday's 4-3 victory. It was Franco's second straight game with a home run as he went 1-for-3 on the day with a walk. Despite the late life, Franco is still hitting just .240/.307/.444 on the season while... Read More

Brock Holt Out Sunday

Boston Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt is not in Sunday's lineup after starting the first two games since the All-Star Break.

Ryne Stanek, Ryan Yarbrough Perfect For Eight Innings

Starting with two innings from opening pitcher Ryne Stanek, the Tampa Bay Rays took what would have been the first combined perfect game in MLB history into the ninth inning on Sunday, before follower Ryan Yarbrough allowed a leadoff single. Tampa Bay ultimately prevailed over the Baltimore Orioles, 4-1, with Oliver Drake and Emilio Pagan... Read More

Dellin Betances Cleared to Throw

As expected, New York Yankees relief pitcher Dellin Betances has been cleared to resume throwing. Betances has suffered from a right shoulder bone spur and a lat strain this season, but the team his confident he will be okay from here. Given that Betances has not pitched all season, it will be important to note... Read More

Daniel Poncedeleon to Rotation, Michael Wacha Out

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Daniel Poncedeleon will start on Wednesday, sending Michael Wacha to the bullpen. While the switch may not be permanent, any fantasy roster that has Wacha on it can afford to drop him for now. The 28-year-old has struggled to a 5.54 ERA and 6.22 FIP this season, so he was already... Read More

The Cut List (Week 16) - Time to Let Go?

Not a ton has changed since last week given the one combined real game from Monday through Thursday. Friday doesn't exactly give us enough new information, either: as if Josh Bell opening the second half 0-for-4 would make anyone panic. That said, there are still decisions to be made. Fewer, given the lack of new... Read More

Back Puts Max Scherzer on IL

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer was placed on the injured list Saturday, retroactive to July 10, with a mid-back strain. Catcher Spencer Kieboom was called up to take his place. There is no word yet on how long Scherzer may be out, but this is not good news after he had his next start... Read More

Max Scherzer Start Pushed Back

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer, originally scheduled to pitch on Sunday, will no longer be making that start on account of back tightness. Scherzer has been experiencing it since before the All-Star Break and obviously it remains an issue. It's not clear the extent of the pushback -- Scherzer himself anticipates a matter of...

Power Hitting Risers & Fallers for Week 15 - Buy or Sell?

Welcome to the All-Star Break edition of Power Hitting Risers & Fallers. All stats are full season through Sunday, July 7 (unless otherwise noted). For the break, this week's risers and fallers were selected somewhat more scientifically than usual. Everyone who had 100 plate appearances in both 2018 and 2019 had the number of plate... Read More

The Cut List (Week 15) - Time to Let Go?

The All-Star Break will be here after today's games. For players who won't participate in the game on Tuesday, it's a chance to take a break from the grind for several days.

Max Scherzer On Paternity List

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer was placed on the paternity list on Wednesday. Infielder Adrian Sanchez temporarily takes his roster spot.

Rays Send Andrew Velazquez to Indians

Infielder Andrew Velazquez was traded from the Tampa Bay Rays to the Cleveland Indians Wednesday in exchange for international bonus pool money. Velazquez is a 4-for-22 hitter in his MLB career and also just .267/.331/.390 in the minors, so this is an organizational depth move. Cleveland designated pitcher Chih-Wei Hu, who has not appeared in... Read More

Ryan Zimmerman Off Wednesday

Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman will not start Wednesday, his second time out of the lineup in five games since returning from plantar fasciitis. The left-handed Matt Adams gets the start and bats fifth against Miami Marlins right-hander Sandy Alcantara. Adams is a decent DFS play against Alcantara, if this game -- which starts... Read More

Hernan Perez Outrighted to Triple-A

Milwaukee Brewers infielder/outfielder Hernan Perez, who was designated for assignment on June 28, cleared waivers Wednesday and was sent to Triple-A San Antonio. Perez showed promise in 2016 with a .272 batting average, 13 home runs, and 34 stolen bases, but has not approached similar value since and was hitting just .235/.277/.383 in 160 plate... Read More

Brian Anderson Out of Lineup Wednesday

Miami Marlins outfielder/third baseman Brian Anderson is not in the team's lineup Wednesday after exiting Tuesday's game with an elbow contusion. For the most part, Anderson has been playing right field while Neil Walker starts at third base. Wednesday, Walker will stay at third and bat fourth, while Harold Ramirez takes Anderson's right field spot... Read More

Willie Calhoun Could See Second Base Time

Texas Rangers outfielder Willie Calhoun has done some work at second base in recent days, and could also start doing some third base work as well. This development would seem to be a damning statement on incumbent second baseman Rougned Odor, who has hit a dreadful .189/.259/.369 in 2019. Calhoun is unlikely to be any... Read More

Tyler Flowers Takes Turn At Catcher

Atlanta Braves catcher Tyler Flowers is the team's eighth hitter Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies. The rest of Atlanta's lineup is their standard arrangement. They are facing Phillies starter Nick Pivetta, who's been better since returning from a demotion on May 28, but still has just a 4.30 ERA, 32-10 K-BB ratio, and nine home... Read More

Dodgers Acquire Casey Sadler, Transfer Rich Hill

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired pitcher Casey Sadler from the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday in exchange for pitcher Nathan Witt.
