1 day agoSeattle Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc has been activated for Saturday night's game versus the Minnesota Twins. LeBlanc had missed time with an oblique injury and sports an underwhelming 4.50 ERA, and 1.63 WHIP across three starts this season. LeBlanc can be avoided for this start and as a fantasy asset in all leagues but he may have some streamer appeal in future starts this season.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Ryan Divish - Twitter
1 day agoTexas Rangers reliever Shawn Kelley underwent surgery to remove lumps from his throat after he was placed on the IL last week with an "infection." Results from the biopsy are pending, but Kelley hopes to return to the Rangers bullpen Monday when he's first eligible. He'll throw a session on Saturday, and if he experiences no discomfort with his incision on his chin, he should be activated. It remains to be seen if Kelley will immediately return to his closing role after proving to be the most reliable reliever with Jose Leclerc struggling. Kelley is still worth a speculative add if we hear that his session goes well as saves remain an elusive category in 2019.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Jeff Wilson - Star Telegram
1 day agoThe New York Mets officially activated starter Steven Matz for Saturday's game versus the Miami Marlins sending down Paul Sewald in a corresponding move. Matz has been on the IL over the last couple of weeks with a forearm injury and returns in a juicy matchup against an uninspiring Marlins team. This matchup makes him seem like a worthy starter in DFS and season-long leagues although his outing may be shortened so he should be avoided depsite the good matchup. Matz has a 3.86 ERA, and 1.20 WHIP in seven starts this year as he's shown flashes of brilliance as well as some frustrating moments. The southpaw is better utilized as a streamer in mixed-leagues until we see some more game-to-game consistency.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: New York Mets - Twitter
1 day agoThe Oakland Athletics made a late change to their lineup Saturday scratching designated hitter Khris Davis. He was initially slated to bat cleanup versus Tigers lefty Matthew Boyd but will instead tend to his lingering hip issue that's forced him from the lineup of late. It appears as a precautionary move for the scuffling A's as they want to keep their slugger healthy for the long run. It's disappointing for fantasy owners after he seemed to be returning to form with a two-homer performance earlier this week followed by a three-hit performance on Friday. Look for Davis to return to the lineup Sunday or Monday when they begin a series against the Indians.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Oakland Athletics - Twitter

1 day agoMilwaukee Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson was superb in his third rehab start Friday night. He went 5.2 shutout innings striking out eight batters while giving up three hits and a walk for his second victory. Nelson stated he didn't feel "fatigued" after throwing 86 pitches in the outing as he'll likely have another start or two before joining the Brewers rotation. Nelson missed the entire 2018 campaign after undergoing shoulder surgery and appears to be near full health after this outing. He holds a 3.77 ERA with 16 strikeouts in 14.1 IP in Triple-A and is worth a stash in deep leagues. Nelson hopes to return to the majors by month's end, and he'll provide significant fantasy relevance upon his return.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Todd Rosiak - jsonline.com
1 day agoDetroit Tigers outfielder/first baseman Niko Goodrum is out of the lineup Saturday for the second straight day with flu-like symptoms. He's considered day-to-day as the Tigers face A's starter Daniel Mengden this afternoon. Goodrum is having a subpar season hitting .201 with three homers and 12 RBI and only holds value in AL-only and deep mixed leagues. Goodrum's positional eligibility is a plus, but he doesn't offer much value in any roto category, especially on an underwhelming offense.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Chris McCosky - Twitter

1 day agoCleveland Indians recent outfield call-up Oscar Mercado is getting his second career start Saturday versus Orioles lefty John Means. The 24-year-old sat in back-to-back games after receiving his promotion May 14 hinting that perhaps his stay in the majors may not be for the long term. Mercado is a cheap DFS option for today as the rest of the Indians bats have heated up lately as he searches for his first big league hit. Mercado has great dynasty value with his power/speed combo, but his redraft value remains limited if the Indians aren't going to use him every day or keep him on the big league squad.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Cleveland Indians - Twitter

1 day agoOakland Athletics first baseman Matt Olson is sitting on Saturday versus Tigers lefty Matthew Boyd as Mark Canha will take his spot in the lineup. It's a good day for a rest after playing almost every day since returning 10 days ago from a broken hand. Olson has found his power strike lately with three dingers in his last five games which is a good sign since hand injuries tend to linger. Expect the 25-year-old to return to action Sunday as the Tigers will send another lefty, Gregory Soto, to the mound.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Oakland Athletics - Twitter

1 day agoNew York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton appears not far away from a return to the majors. He'll begin a minor league rehab assignment on Monday and could return to the Yankees lineup in about a week. Stanton was placed on the IL on April 1 with a biceps injury, and he also suffered a setback with a shoulder issue since then. It's big news for New York as well as fantasy owners to get their slugger back after the 29-year-old crushed 38 homers and 100 RBI a season ago. Look for the Yankees to give more updates this week on his status as he should return producing tremendous power numbers once again this season.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Pete Caldera - northjersey.com

1 day agoToronto Blue Jays minor league shortstop Bo Bichette is cleared for light activity and will begin hitting next week. Bichette suffered a fracture in his left hand on April 26 after a hit-by-pitch and is expected to be out 4-6 weeks. It's a good sign that his recovery is on schedule as the 21-year-old is expected to make his major league debut at some point in 2019. Bichette was slashing .250/.310/.404 for Triple-A Buffalo and remains one of the best hitting prospects in all of baseball. He offers speed, power, and an ability to hit for average and will be worth a fantasy roster spot when his promotion comes. For now, he can be left alone in redraft mixed leagues, but his dynasty value is sky-high.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Ben Nicholson-Smith - Twitter

1 day agoTexas Rangers designated hitter Hunter Pence (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The veteran outfielder will get a routine day off here. Willie Calhoun will draw the start in left field and bat second, while Shin-Soo Choo will leadoff and bat first versus righty Dakota Hudson. Both could make for interesting fantasy options at the top of the order on Saturday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

1 day agoLos Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner (shin) is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cincinnati Reds. Turner fouled a ball off his shin during Friday's game. The X-rays came back negative, so Turner is considered day-to-day at the moment. Matt Beaty will cover first base and bat sixth, while Max Muncy bats second and plays third base versus righty Tyler Mahle.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Bill Plunkett

1 day agoCleveland Indians starting pitcher Adam Plutko will draw the start versus the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday. Plutko will make the start on Saturday which will push back Carlos Carrasco and Shane Bieber. Plutko missed the first five weeks of the season due to a forearm injury. He's not a reliable streaming option, even against the struggling Orioles offense.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Mandy Bell
1 day agoColorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers will remain in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Rodgers made his MLB debut on Friday, but went hitless. Ryan McMahon is struggling with the bat, so Rodgers should continue seeing playing time. Rodgers will bat seventh and play second base versus righty Aaron Nola. Fantasy owners in need of infield help should take a look at Rodgers.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

1 day agoColorado Rockies first baseman Ian Desmond (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Desmond has a shaky .219 batting average, but has hit five home runs and knocked in 20 runs. David Dahl will draw the start in center field and at third versus righty Aaron Nola. Dahl could be cheap reliable DFS option for Saturday's contests.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
