13 hours agoKansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez (elbow) has progressed to the point where he can start catching side sessions as long as he doesn't do any throwing. Perez is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and will not be an option in redraft leagues at all in 2019. At the thinnest fantasy position, Perez should be an attractive backstop next year if he is fully ready for the start of the regular season. The 29-year-old has sacrificed contact for power the last several seasons, and he's hit at least 21 bombs in each of the last four years.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Kansas City Star - Lynn Worthy

13 hours agoDetroit Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario has been recalled from Triple-A on Wednesday. Candelario is hitting .179/.277/.269 with the Tigers this season. However, Candelario is batting .345/.427/.631 during his time in the minors. Clearly, something hasn't clicked at the major league level for Candelario yet. He'll bat sixth and play third base versus lefty Mike Minor on Wednesday. The only place where he's even worth a look is in AL-only leagues.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource:

14 hours agoSeattle Mariners pitcher Matthew Carasiti has been named the opener for Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. The opener move hasn't worked well for Seattle this year, but they will give it at least one more shot. Carasiti will pitch an inning or two and then be followed by lefty Wade LeBlanc out of the bullpen. Fantasy owners should avoid this situation.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Greg Johns

14 hours agoAtlanta Braves outfielder Austin Riley (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Cubs. Riley is getting a routine day off, but should be back in there next game. Johan Camargo will play left field and bat eighth versus righty Yu Darvish. Camargo has been hitting well lately in his limited appearances, but batting eighth isn't going to help his DFS value.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource:

14 hours agoPhiladelphia Phillies relief pitcher Tommy Hunter (elbow) could rejoin the bullpen this weekend, according to Matt Breen. Hunter has been out all season due to a flexor strain, but could make a big impact in the Philly bullpen. The Phillies bullpen has been crushed by injuries all season, so Hunter should make a splash once activated. However, Hunter likely won't pitch in the ninth inning too often, so his fantasy value is limited.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Matt Breen
14 hours agoMilwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain (thumb) is out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Seattle Mariners. Cain reportedly underwent cryotherapy for his right thumb on Tuesday. However, Cain was not placed on the injured list and is being considered day-to-day at the moment. Ben Gamel will cover center field and bat fifth versus righty Matt Carasiti. Gamel doesn't have enough upside to warrant using in fantasy leagues.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource:

14 hours agoWhile reports early Wednesday were promising, the New York Yankees will have to place outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (knee) back on the injured list with a PCL strain. The 29-year-old suffered the injury Tuesday sliding the bases in the third inning. In response to the move, the club will recall Mike Tauchman from Triple-A, sending him to London for the club's two-game set against the Red Sox. This is a frustrating result for Stanton, the Yankees and Stanton's fantasy owners as he had just returned from a lingering injury and was starting to hit well.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Lindsey Adler Twitter

14 hours agoLos Angeles Angels pitcher Jaime Barria has been recalled from Triple-A and will make the start against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday. Barria has a 6.52 ERA in five appearances with the Angels this season. The Angels may decide to give him a longer look this time. However, Barria doesn't have much upside in terms of fantasy production, so he can be left on the waiver wire in most formats.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource:
14 hours agoNew York Mets catcher Wilson Ramos is getting a breather Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies. Ramos has been excellent in his last three games, collecting three runs, two home runs and three RBI, but even more so since the calendar hit May. Over the past 42 games, Ramos has a .297/.378/.507 slash line along with eight home runs, 23 runs and 24 RBI, and looks set to return high-end fantasy catcher numbers as originally projected. Tomas Nido will be behind the plate on Wednesday and bat ninth against Phillies right-hander Nick Pivetta and is not a recommended play.--Yossef M - RotoballerSource: Baseball Press

15 hours agoIn their final game before heading to London for the weekend, the New York Yankees didn't get the desired performance out of starter James Paxton Wednesday afternoon. The Canadian native was not sharp, allowing a three-run home run to the third batter he faced. In the second inning he surrendered a two-run blast, before allowing one more solo shot in the fifth after his offense had stormed back to tie the score. The 30-year-old exited after 4 1/3 innings of work, having allowed his most home runs in a start this season. He's expected to make his next start back in New York when the Yankees return from England to face the Mets.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Mike Petriello Twitter
15 hours agoNew York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard (hamstring) is on track to return to the mound Sunday after successfully completing his rehab assignment. The 26-year-old allowed three runs over five innings while striking out 12 batters in the start and looks ready to rock. Get him back into your lineups Sunday and let him roll against the Braves. As long as Thor's command is on, he's typically solid for his fantasy owners. He's had his ups and downs in 2019, and the matchup against Atlanta isn't the easiest.--Yossef M - RotoballerSource: Anthony DiComo ‏- Twitter
15 hours agoChicago Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Atlanta Braves with left-hander Dallas Keuchel on the mound. Schwarber has been solid over the month of June, posting a .261 batting average while collecting six home runs and 15 RBI over 23 games. Kris Bryant will slide over to left and bat second while Jason Heyward mans right and bats sixth, the latter of whom has struggled mightily against left-handed pitching and is not a recommended play on Wednesday.--Yossef M - RotoballerSource: Baseball Press

15 hours agoGary Woodland will be teeing it up for the first time since his breakthrough victory at the U.S. Open two weeks ago. The American checks all the boxes the way you would hope to see for a course that nobody has ever played, but there has to be some concern when it comes to how prepared the 35-year-old will be after going on his media tour following his victory. All eyes will be on the four-time PGA Tour winner, and it is doubtful he has had much time to work on his game. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
15 hours agoWashington Nationals infielder Howie Kendrick is getting the game off against the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. The 35-year-old has proven to be valuable when he does get playing time this season, posting 39 runs, 12 home runs and 43 RBI with a .388 on-base percentage over 182 at-bats, which has been enough to hold value in slightly deeper mixed leagues. Matt Adams will man first and bat fifth  against rookie right-hander Zac Gallen. Adams has hit nine of his 10 home runs against right-handed pitching this season and has four in his last seven games and could prove to be a very good play against the rookie.--Yossef M - RotoballerSource: Baseball Press

15 hours agoIt is not often that we see a player hit a price tag of $12,000 on DraftKings, but with the weak field the Rocket Mortgage Classic has assembled, that is precisely the amount Dustin Johnson comes in at this weekend. Johnson has posted two straight questionable finishes at the RBC Canadian Open and U.S. Open, but Detroit Golf Club feels like the perfect bounce-back spot for the 35-year-old golfer. We have no issues with starting both cash-game and GPP lineups with Johnson and would advise heavily considering him for both.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
16 hours agoViktor Hovland is in the field for this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic. It will be the second professional start of Hovland's career. His pro debut - a T54 at last week's Travelers - was a mixed bag, as the 21-year-old flashed many of the qualities that make him a potential star, while also showing that some areas of his game need to improve. Hovland was brilliant with the driver and gained 5.9 strokes off the tee, but lost over two strokes with his putter at TPC River Highlands. The youngster has a great chance to make a splash in Detroit this week against a less-than-stellar Rocket Mortgage field. He's an interesting 'boom-or-bust' GPP option. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
17 hours agoHideki Matsuyama is in the field for the upcoming Rocket Mortgage Classic. The event will be making its first appearance on the PGA Tour schedule and Matsuyama is one of the few elite players in this week's field. The Japanese superstar has continued to impress with his ball-striking ability in 2019 and ranks fourth on the PGA Tour in strokes gained on approach this season. 'Deki' has struggled horribly with his putter this in the past, but has turned things around on the greens recently by gaining strokes putting in each his last four starts. Matsuyama's world-class talent, ball striking, and improving short game makes him an ultra-elite option in all fantasy formats this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
17 hours agoCleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber has been on the injured list since early May with a non-displaced fracture of the ulna bone in his right arm. He will undergo a series of MRIs this week to be cleared to begin a throwing program. The hopes are that he will be available to the Indians soon after the All-Star break once he starts throwing. Kluber had an uncharacteristic 5.80 ERA before the injury, so we will hope that this layoff can get him back on track.--Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource: Paul Hoynes
17 hours agoKevin Streelman is in the field for the upcoming Rocket Mortgage Classic. Streelman heads to the Motor City with loads of positive momentum. The veteran recorded a T15 at last week's Travelers Championship, the latest in a string of great finishes for him this summer. The 40-year-old isn't flashy, but he's certainly been getting the job done in 2019. Streelman ranks 28th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: tee to green. His fairways-and-greens style should make him a great fit on this week's Donald Ross layout. Streelman is a rock-solid DFS option in all formats. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
17 hours agoIt is being reported by Jon Morosi that the Los Angeles Dodgers have interest in Pittsburgh Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez. While he would be a huge help to the backend of the Dodgers bullpen, this move would come at a cost for Vazquez's fantasy value as he would be expected to be used in a setup role. He currently has a 1.91 ERA and 19 saves, so fantasy owners will hope that he doesn't get moved to a team that will take him out of the closer's role. The Pirates may not be inclined to move him, as he is under team control until 2023.--Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource: Jon Morosi
17 hours agoSungjae Im is quickly proving himself to be the hardest working man in golf. The 21-year-old is scheduled to make his mind-blowing 28th start of the season at this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic. Im heads to Detroit on the heels of two strong outings at the RBC Canadian Open and last week's Travelers Championship. The young man from South Korea is making a solid case for PGA Tour rookie of the year honors and currently sits 26th in the FedEx Cup points race. He's an intriguing DFS option in this week's watered-down field. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
18 hours agoRyan Moore is scheduled to play in the upcoming Rocket Mortgage Classic. Moore heads to Motown with his game trending in the right direction. He logged a T15 at last week's Travelers Championship on the strength of his sharp iron play. The 36-year-old ranks third on the PGA Tour in driving accuracy percentage and profiles as a solid fit for this week's Donald Ross layout at Detroit Golf Club. Moore was one of the most decorated amateur golfers in history, but his professional career has been plagued by inconsistency. He will attempt to string together back-to-back good outings and makes for an interesting DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
18 hours agoChicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada exited Wednesday’s contest in the top of the first inning. Moncada was hit in the knee by Chris Sale and stayed in the game initially. After going from first to third during the teams next at bat, Moncada exited. More should be known on Moncada’s status as the day goes on. Infielder Yolmer Sanchez replaced Moncada and will bat second.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Daryl Van Schouwen

18 hours agoJoaquin Niemann is in the field for the upcoming Rocket Mortgage Classic. Niemann heads to Detroit fresh off a career-best-tying T5 at last week's Travelers Championship. The young star scuffled for the better part of 2019, but has turned things around over the last month with four solid outings. The 20-year-old ranks 34th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: tee to green. His weakness is normally the putter, but the flatstick has been more cooperative recently. Niemann's talent and trending form makes him a high-upside DFS option this week at Detroit Golf Club. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
18 hours agoBubba Watson is in the field for this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic. Watson heads to Detroit in slumping form. The 40-year-old is fresh off a disappointing T54 at last week's Travelers Championship and hasn't logged a top-10 finish since March. The lefty is a very course-specific type of player and it's anyone's guess as to how he will react to seeing Detroit Golf Club for the first time. Watson is a recognizable name in this weak Rocket Mortgage field, but his recent form makes it tough to put much confidence in him. He's an iffy fantasy prospect this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
18 hours agoRickie Fowler is in the field for this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic. Fowler is sponsored by the company that's hosting the new event in Detroit. The fan favorite has a win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open on his 2019 resume, but he's been a non-factor in the year's last two major championships. This tournament's field is one of the weakest of the season, which automatically makes Fowler one of the favorites at Detroit Golf Club. His DFS salaries are expensive across the industry, but he is without a doubt an elite option in this spot. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
19 hours agoArizona Diamondbacks infielder Jake Lamb (quadriceps) is playing first base and batting fifth in his return from the injured list on Wednesday. Christian Walker sits. Also of note in Arizona's lineup are the absences of Ketel Marte, who sat with a groin injury on Saturday and Sunday, as well as Adam Jones. Lamb will probably have some rust after hitting just .179/.304/.308 at Triple-A Reno during his rehab stint, so should be avoided in DFS. He also struggled last season after strong 2016 and '17 campaigns. Let someone else take the chance on him in deeper mixed leagues.--Nate Green - RotoBallerSource:

19 hours agoChicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson (ankle) is headed to the 10-day injured list with a high right ankle sprain. Anderson left Tuesday’s contest early and was seen in a walking boot on Wednesday. It’s a tough blow for fantasy owners and Anderson is likely to be replaced at shortstop by Leury Garcia. Garcia doesn’t do much across the board to warrant an add outside of AL-only leagues.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Paul Sullivan

19 hours agoSan Diego Padres catcher Francisco Mejia is their designated hitter Wednesday for the second game of a road series against the Baltimore Orioles. He is batting sixth. San Diego is showing some trust in the formerly highly-rated prospect, who has struggled as a Major Leaguer but is hitting .313/.353/.563 in 17 plate appearances since his latest call-up, by getting him in the lineup even when not catching. His latest success is nonetheless from a very small sample so it's probably best to avoid Mejia in DFS Wednesday.--Nate Green - RotoBallerSource:

19 hours agoCleveland Indians outfielder Jake Bauers (ankle) will start in left field and bat sixth on Wednesday, his first start since Saturday. Outfielders Mike Freeman and Jordan Luplow are not in the lineup and Tyler Naquin slides down to ninth in the order. Luplow has not appeared in a game since pinch hitting and playing left field Sunday, but there hasn't been any indication from the team as to why. Bauers, meanwhile, has struggled to a .224/.302/.384 slash line this season making him a fringe player for both standard fantasy and in DFS.--Nate Green - RotoBallerSource:
