10 hours agoHouston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Angels. Alvarez will get a routine day off here against the left-handed starter. George Springer will bat leadoff and serve as the designated hitter versus lefty Jose Suarez. Springer has been swinging a hot bat lately, so he's a strong candidate for DFS contests.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource:

10 hours agoThe Cincinnati Reds activated second baseman/outfielder Derek Dietrich (shoulder) from the injured list on Friday. Dietrich missed 16 games with left shoulder inflammation and was 2-for-11 with two runs, two strikeouts and a hit by pitch in three rehab games. He's at first base and is hitting seventh against Pirates starter Mitch Keller in his return. Dietrich had cooled off considerably before his injury, however, so you may want to hold him out of your lineups until he proves that he's completely healthy again. On the season, the 30-year-old is hitting just .207/.349/.514 with 19 home runs and 43 RBI.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Cincinnati Enquirer - Bobby Nightengale

10 hours agoTampa Bay Rays outfielder Avisail Garcia (oblique) is expected to be activated off the 10-day injured list on Saturday. Garcia has been out of action for the last week or so due to a right oblique issue. He seems to be playing well during his rehab games, so Garcia is on track to rejoin the Rays on Saturday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Marc Topkin

10 hours agoLos Angeles Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons (ankle) has been activated from the 10-day injured list on Friday. Simmons has missed basically all month due to a sprained left ankle. He did not play in any rehab games, so he'll jump right into the starting lineup for Friday's contest. Simmons will play shortstop and bat seventh versus righty Zack Greinke.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource:

10 hours agoWashington Nationals starting pitcher Joe Ross (leg) is expected to make his start on Saturday against the Cubs. Ross was hit by a comebacker in his last start earlier this week, but X-rays were negative and he should be good to go this weekend. The right-hander has been very good for the Nats this month, but he's still a pretty risky starting option on Saturday against a good hitting lineup in the Cubbies.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Jamal Collier
10 hours agoWashington Nationals starting pitcher Max Scherzer (back) played catch without issue on Friday but said he's "not out of the woods yet" with his injury. He will monitor his back moving forward. The Nats ace returned from the injured list on Thursday and was effective in his four innings. His velocity wasn't at its normal levels either, and it's very possible that Scherzer won't be completely 100 percent the rest of the way. Fantasy owners will take it, though, as Scherzer at less than 100 percent is still better than the majority of other pitchers out there. Hopefully he'll be able to go a little longer in his next outing.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Jamal Collier
10 hours agoArizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Robbie Ray (back) is scheduled to rejoin the starting rotation on Sunday versus the Milwaukee Brewers. Ray was able to get through a bullpen session without any issues on Friday. He's been sidelined for a little over a week due to back spasms. Ray won't need a rehab outing and will take the mound against the Brewers on Sunday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Russell Dorsey
10 hours agoSt. Louis Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter is not in the lineup for the second straight day on Friday. Tommy Edman is at third base again and will hit seventh against Rockies starter Peter Lambert. Carp has been atrocious since returning from his injury and has just never really hit a stride all season. As a result, it looks like St. Louis will keep him on the bench more regularly. Edman will be the beneficiary and is worth a look in NL-only leagues. He's not the greatest DFS play, though, as he's hitting .270/.303/.423 with five homers, 20 RBI and eight steals in 189 at-bats.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Baseball Press

11 hours agoMiami Marlins starting pitcher Jose Urena (back) is set to become the team's closer once he returns from the injured list in September. While the Marlins may not put him in position to get many saves, those that play in head-to-head leagues know all too well that the few saves he will be in line to get could be the difference between moving on in the fantasy playoffs or going home. If you have a spare roster spot and play in saves leagues, give him some consideration.--Yossef M - RotoBallerSource: Craig Mish - Twitter
11 hours agoTexas Rangers utility man Danny Santana is back in the starting lineup Friday after sitting out of Thursday's game with a sore hamstring. There was never much fear over Santana missing an extended period of time, but the day off may have been exactly what he needed. Santana has not been hitting the ball as well as he was early on in the season, posting an underwhelming .229 batting average through the month of August so far, but he does have five home runs and 13 RBI in that time frame. Feel free to trot him out as you normally would, but keep an eye on his production going forward.--Yossef M - RotoBallerSource: Baseball Press

12 hours agoTampa Bay Rays catcher Travis D'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Baltimore Orioles. This looks like a routine day off for D'Arnaud, who has started the last five consecutive games behind the plate. Mike Zunino will take his place behind the dish and bat ninth against right-hander Trevor Richards and can be safely ignored in most fantasy formats. He's all or nothing for DFS players, and Zunino has mostly come up empty in 2019.--Yossef M - RotoBallerSource: Baseball Press

12 hours agoSeattle Mariners starting pitcher Justus Sheffield has been recalled from Double-A Arkansas and will get the start against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday. While Sheffield has an underwhelming 4.13 ERA and 1.35 WHIP through 133 innings between Double-A and Triple-A this season, he has absolutely dominated since being sent back to Double-A, pitching to the tune of a 2.19 ERA over 78 innings. Sheffield is somewhat of a risky option at the moment, but he has all the tools to be a valuable fantasy starter if he can put it all together. Those who play in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only leagues may want to give him a shot.--Yossef M - RotoBallerSource: Mariners PR - Twitter
12 hours agoChicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez (hip) is not in the lineup Friday against the Texas Rangers for a second straight game. Jimenez was a late scratch Thursday with hip soreness, but the injury does not seem to be too severe, as White Sox manager Rick Renteria said the team is just being cautious. There is a chance we see him back in the lineup sometime this weekend. Leury Garcia will slide into left and bat leadoff while Jon Jay mans right and bats sixth against right-hander Lance Lynn. Both players can be safely ignored by fantasy owners and DFS players.--Yossef M - RotoBallerSource: Baseball Press

12 hours agoPhiladelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper was placed on the paternity list Friday. Harper can miss a maximum of three games, which would put him on track to return to the lineup Monday against the Pirates, at the latest. Scott Kingery will take his place in the outfield against the Marlins on Friday and bat seventh, but he can be left on the waiver wire for this one. Maikel Franco was recalled in a corresponding roster move but will not be in the starting lineup.--Yossef M - RotoBallerSource: Baseball Press

12 hours agoBoston Red Sox starting pitcher David Price (wrist) is likely to make his return to the rotation Sunday when the Red Sox face off against the Padres. Fantasy owners are hoping Price can pitch the way he had been before the All-Star break when he pitched to the tune of a 3.16 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 88 innings. In four starts since then, Price has a worrisome 10.59 ERA and 2.18 WHIP. Price's recent struggles are somewhat of a concern, so don't be afraid to sit him for this one until he shows he is ready to rock.--Yossef M - RotoBallerSource: Pete Abraham - Twitter
