7/11:Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Carlos Rodon went 7 1/3 innings and gave up three hits, struck out seven and walked two in his victory Wednesday over the St. Louis Cardinals. Rodon is 2-3 with a 3.56 ERA in seven starts. He has walked 17 and struck out 35 in 43 innings. Rodon gives up too many runs to be relevant in anything other than AL-only leagues. His next start will come against the Mariners after the All-Star break--Aaron Russell - RotoBallerSource: Scott Merkin
7/11:Cleveland Indians infielder Jose Ramirez had an excellent game on Wednesday, smacking two home runs and driving in five runs. He finished 2-for-4 and raised his batting average to .293 and his OPS to 1.001. The two home runs gave him 27 on the season and the five RBI brought him to 65. The All-Star is putting together another season that should land him near the top of MVP voting.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

7/11:San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey hit a single in the bottom of the 13th inning to beat the Chicago Cubs. Posey went 3-7 with the one RBI. He is the No. 3 catcher in mixed leagues and is an All-Star this year. He will not attend the event to rest his hip. This could be why he is only batting .192 in the past seven days.--Aaron Russell - RotoBallerSource: Alex Pavlovic

7/11:Cleveland Indians pitcher Adam Plutko earned the first save of his career on Wednesday. It was the three-inning variety of save, as Plutko actually tossed four innings, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out four and allowed two home runs. It wasn't a great outing by any means, but he closed out a 19-4 win and saved the Cleveland bullpen. It'll almost certainly be the only save of the season for Plutko, and quite possibly the only one of his career.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
7/11:Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco tossed five strong innings on Wednesday, picking up a win. He allowed just one run on five hits and a walk while striking out seven. The win was Carrasco's 10th, moving his record to 10-5 and his ERA to 4.16. He only threw 83 pitches, but with the game well in hand, he was lifted after the fifth inning.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
7/11:Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Shelby Miller could only manage a single inning Wednesday at Coors Field. His line was one inning pitched, four hits, five earned runs, two walk, and a strikeout. The official word was Miller left with right elbow tightness. An MRI is pending. Miller is 0-3 with a 9.00 ERA. He should not be owned this year.--Aaron Russell - RotoBallerSource: FOX Sports Arizona - Jody Jackson
7/11:Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Sam Gaviglio lasted only 1 2/3 innings against the Braves on Wednesday night as he gave up six runs on six hits. The start spikes Gaviglio's ERA from 3.81 to 4.70 as he heads into the All-Star break. If there was any doubt before this start, Gaviglio shouldn't be considered as much more than waiver wire fodder.--Matthew Sparrow - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
7/11:While in the minors with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last month, New York Yankees infielder Tyler Wade took a page out of teammate Brandon Drury’s book and spoke of his frustrations of being stuck in the minors. On Wednesday, the 23-year-old recorded three hits in a start at second base and even launched his first career home run. Brought up in the aftermath of Gleyber Torres’ injury, Wade, had his first significant damage in this game, driving in a run and scoring one himself. With Neil Walker still looking at the majority of starts at second while Torres recovers, Wade gave the Yankees something to ponder and he should see more playing time after this.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: NY Post

7/11:New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo was supposed to have Wednesday off, but was called upon to pinch hit in the bottom of the 10th inning. He hit the first pitch he saw over the right field fence for a game winning three-run homer. Nimmo has a .380 on-base percentage with 13 homers and 29 RBI. He is a cult favorite for many fantasy owners, but has been slumping lately. I can't justify owning or starting him--Aaron Russell - RotoBallerSource: Mets

7/11:Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak homered for the second time in as many games on Wednesday night against the Braves. It was a solo shot for Smoak, his 14th of the year and 47th RBI. While he's not on the 38-home run pace of last season, Smoak can still reliably contribute in the power department on a daily basis and should be started in most leagues.--Matthew Sparrow - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

7/11:Could New York Yankees first baseman Greg Bird be on the comeback trail? The 25-year-old’s last couple of games certainly make it seem that way. On Wednesday night in New York’s easy victory over the Orioles, he delivered just one hit, his first career grand slam which busted the game wide open. He now has two home runs and eight RBI in his past two games, while having recorded a hit in five straight. For Bird, who has struggled mightily since making his season debut, these are small steps that can become huge as we enter the second half of the season.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

7/11:Atlanta Braves outfielder Ender Inciarte was hit in the first inning of Wednesday's 9-5 win over Toronto. He was hit in the arm, and left in the game in the top of the fifth. Inciarte went 1-for-2 with an RBI and a run scored. There was speculation that his arm may have tightened up. It was probably a precautionary measure - we will let you know if there is any need to worry.--Michael Griffin - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

7/11:It's a good thing Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz got a lot of run support on Wednesday, since he suddenly lost his touch in the seventh inning. The righty was cruising along with a 7-0 lead and then... poof. Five runs, including a homer from Justin Smoak and one from Devon Travis, and he was in the showers. Fortunately, the Braves scored two more runs and won, 9-5. Folty got the win and he will next pitch in the All-Star Game.--Michael Griffin - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com
7/11:Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis went hitless against the Yankees, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a walk. Davis had registered exactly one hit in each of the past five games, including two homers, but he looked like his former self on Wednesday night. With just nine home runs overall and a pitiful .158 average, it's time to cut bait if you haven't already.--Matthew Sparrow - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

7/11:Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies should have his family visit more often. Albies, who will be going to the All-Star Game, showed why he was selected, going deep twice on Wednesday. Both homers were solo and it was the first time he'd hit two round-trippers in a game. He's now got 20 homers and 54 RBIs. Yes... 40 homers are far from being out of the question. It should go without saying... start him.--Michael Griffin - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com
