4/21:Colorado Rockies first baseman/outfielder Ian Desmond is out of the lineup against the Cubs on Saturday. Desmond has had a bad start to the season, and he's been particularly atrocious as of late. He's hitting just .152 on the year, but that's partly because he's hitless in his last 14 at-bats. Hopefully, the day off will help him clear his head and get on the right track.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: Colorado Rockies
4/21:Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia (foot) will be out of the lineup on Saturday against the Miami Marlins and will be re-assessed for his injury after the series. On Friday, Arcia was removed from the game after awkwardly rolling his foot returning to first base and had to be helped off. There is a possibility that he could still land on the DL, which would open up playing time at SS for primarily Eric Sogard. Check back tomorrow for updates on Arcia's injury.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: Tom Haudricourt on Twitter
4/21:Chicago Cubs top pitching prospect Adbert Alzolay went six innings in his season debut for Triple-A Iowa on Friday. Alzolay allowed one run, two hits and struck out six batters. Alzolay throws his fastball in the upper 90s, but is still developing his changeup to go along with his fastball and curveball. The right-hander has a good chance to make his debut in 2018, but can be avoided in redraft leagues as he offers more value in dynasty leagues.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource:
4/21:Milwaukee Brewers catcher Manny Pina will run the bases on Sunday, and if all goes well, he could return on Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals. Pina has been on the DL for a calf strain that he received on April 11 and when returning, will be the starting catcher for the Brewers. As of right now though, there is still some uncertainty as his running is the only issue, and if that's not ready to go, he can't return. Upon returning, he won't hold much fantasy value except in NL-only and two-catcher leagues.--Caden Inaba - RotoBallerSource: Tom Haudricourt on Twitter
4/21:Chicago Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber will sit Saturday versus the Rockies. It makes sense as the team faces left-handed Tyler Anderson. Ian Happ will replace Schwarber in the lineup and bat sixth. Schwarber has had a very good season with a .283 batting average to go along with four home runs and 13 RBI.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Gordon Wittenmyer
4/21:Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson will bat first Saturday evening versus the Houston Astros. Anderson is struggling and is seven for his last 36, but has picked up four stolen bases over that span. It’s an odd move by manager Rick Renteria as Anderson is ice cold and second baseman Yoan Moncada who has hit first every game this year has been hitting well lately. We will have to wait and see if the White Sox will stick with this lineup.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Chicago White Sox
4/21:Chicago White Sox second baseman Yoan Moncada has been moved down from the No. 1 spot in the order to the No. 6 spot. It’s a bit of an interesting move as Moncada has been seeing the ball very well with a .294 batting average, two home runs, six RBI and four stolen bases over the past week. Shortstop Tim Anderson will bat first Saturday over Moncada.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Chicago White Sox
4/21:Detroit Tigers outfielder JaCoby Jones is on fire at the dish, having notched eight hits in his last 19 at bats. Jones has seen a boost in playing time with the demotion of Mike Mahtook to Triple-A Toledo, and he's been making the most of it. On the season, he's slashing .297/.372/.541 with two homers and three steals. If he can reach base with any sort of regularity, his speed becomes a valuable fantasy asset in deeper mixed leagues or AL-only formats.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: MLB
4/21:Detroit Tigers right fielder Nicholas Castellanos launched his first home run of the season on Saturday as the Tigers beat the Royals. It was part of a three-hit, three-RBI effort for Castellanos, bringing his season average to .286 and his RBI total to nine. It's been a bit of a slow start for Castellanos from a power perspective, but he's coming off his best year at the plate and is making hard contact 51.8% of the time, so it's only a matter of time before his counting stats improve.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: MLB
4/21:Detroit Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris made a spot start on Friday for his first start of the season, lasting 4 2/3 innings and allowing one run while striking out five. Norris was the odd man out in the Tigers' rotation this year and had pitched out of the bullpen up to this point. There was speculation that he would go down to Toledo so he could continue to pitch as a starter, but manager Ron Gardenhire told reporters Norris will stay in the big leagues and continue to work in long relief or as a spot starter. Needless to say, he has limited fantasy value at this point.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: Chris McCosky
4/21:The Chicago Cubs have promoted infielder David Bote to replace Ben Zobrist (back) who was placed on the 10-day disabled list. Bote has hit .234 with three home runs over his first 49 at-bats in Triple-A Iowa. Bote will play third base tonight, but will doesn’t hold much value as he will mostly be a bench bat.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Mark Gonzales
4/21:Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Joe Musgrove (shoulder) will throw another bullpen session on Sunday, according to a report from Liz Bloom of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He'll follow that up with a simulated game on Wednesday if all goes well. Musgrove was expected to be the Pirates' fifth starter coming out of spring training, but he has not pitched yet due to a right shoulder strain. There's still no exact timetable for his return, though it stands to reason that he'll head out on a rehab assignment soon if his upcoming throwing sessions go well.--Matt Wilkes - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
4/21:Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Jason Hammel had a stellar game on Friday, but he was saddled with the rare nine-inning no decision after the game went to extra innings. His effort was for naught as reliever Brad Keller surrendered a walk-off home run to the Tigers in the bottom half of the 10th, but it was still one of Hammel's best outings of his career. Hammel has only thrown nine innings once before in his nine-year career, and that was six years ago. Hammel's not racking up many strikeouts, so his value in fantasy is limited, but he seems to be working pretty craftily so far this season, so he could be a mediocre back-end starter in deep leagues. Just don't count on anymore starts of this length.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource:
4/21:Washington Nationals starter Max Scherzer won the battle of the titans in Los Angeles on Friday. Despite giving up a first-pitch leadoff triple to Chris Taylor and a subsequent HBP to Corey Seager, Scherzer rebounded by not allowing a run in the first. He was finally tagged for one earned run, his only one, in the sixth, his final inning. All in all, he gave up four hits, struck out nine and walked four. Scherzer is having a fine season. He hasn't given up more than two earned runs, nor given up more than six hits, in any contest. He is laying claim, game-by-game, to the title of best pitcher in baseball. He'll next take the mound in pitcher-friendly PNC Park in San Francisco on Wednesday.--Mario Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Jorge Castillo - The Washington Post
4/21:Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas continues to be one of the few bright spots on an otherwise bad team. In Friday's double-header, Moustakas homered in the first game and singled in the second game to extend his hit streak to 12 games. The homer was Moose's fifth of the season, and he's now raised his season triple slash to .333/.359/.986. Owners shouldn't expect him to hit safely forever, but this is an excellent start to the season for the third baseman.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource:
