2 days agoSeattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that running back C.J. Prosise has been healthy this offseason as he tries to win the third-down pass-catching role behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. "He has been fitread more...
2 days agoTampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II, a second-round bust in his rookie season in 2018, is up from 208 pounds last year to 221 pounds. “I’ve put on a lot of pounds of muscle,” Jones said. “I’ve been training with my guy, eating four or five meals a day, protein shakes right after workouts. I’m bigger.” The 21-year-old played only 90 offensive snaps last year and 92 on special teams in nine games, gaining only 77 yards from scrimmage and averaging 1.9 yards per carry with one touchdown. There is opportunity for Jones to improve in a backfield with Peyton Barber atop the depth chart, but most fantasy owners in redraft leagues won't be looking towards Jones at all after his disappointing 2018 campaign.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Pro Football Talk - Charean Williams
2 days agoHouston Astros pitcher Josh James will be the team's opener on Monday against the Angels, with Framber Valdez expected to log the bulk of the innings after him. James is 4-0 on the year with a 4.91 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 76 strikeouts in 47 2/3 innings over his 35 relief appearances. He won't hold any fantasy appeal in the opener role against the Halos and isn't on the fantasy radar as a reliever. Valdez had a couple less-than-stellar outings before the All-Star break but will be back on the radar in deeper leagues as a streaming candidate now that he's back in the rotation.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Athletic - Jake Kaplan
2 days agoHendrick Motorsports driver Jimmie Johnson continues to be determined to win, and the seven-time series champ thinks he has plenty left in the tank. "I still definitely have something to prove," Johnson said. "I love racing. This is who I am and it's what I am. I starting doing this at 5. Through my career, I've had plenty of ups and down and the last couple of years have certainly been down, but that doesn't mean I'm going to stay there. I've worked my entire career to learn what I have today and know what I know." He hasn't won since June 2017 at Dover International Speedway. Next up is a visit to New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com - Marissa Fuller
2 days agoMinnesota Twins right-hander Jose Berrios took a no-decision in a 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. Berrios allowed three runs over five innings of work while picking up six strikeouts and walking three. The young right-hander has taken a huge step forward this season, posting an 8-5 record, 3.10 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 110 strikeouts in 122 innings of work. He will look to keep it going in his next start, which is scheduled to come on Saturday against the Oakland A's.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: www.MLB.com
2 days agoPenske Racing driver Joey Logano was leading the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway late on Saturday night before a spin by Bubba Wallace with six laps to go brought out the caution flag. On the restart, Logano was sandwiched between several drivers, pushing him all the way down to seventh place and he was unable to recover in overtime. "The caution came out at the wrong time," Logano said. "It happens. You try to think through your notebook on how to have a good restart. I thought I was going to have a decent one, but I got stopped on the left rear there and (Kyle Busch) got me. That is what it is. That stopped all my momentum."--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com - Reid Spencer
2 days agoDallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder) is expected to open training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list but is still aiming to be ready for Week 1 after delaying shoulder surgery until April. “The mobility and my strength is coming back naturally,” Lawrence said. “I’m working every day. I’m able to do things. I’m just still limited. Just taking my time. I’ve got time still.” The two-time Pro Bowler has been an IDP beast and wants to break the NFL's single-season record of 22.5 sacks set back in 2001 by Michael Strahan. The 27-year-old Lawrence has accumulated 25 sacks in the last two years for Dallas.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Pro Football Talk - Charean Williams
2 days agoGanassi Racing driver Kurt Busch picked up the checkered flag at the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday night, just edging out his brother Kyle Busch from Joe Gibbs Racing. He was supposed to share a plane back to North Carolina after the race, but Kyle Busch didn't wait for him and forced his older brother to find a ride back home. "I haven't seen him yet, but I was supposed to fly home with him and now I'm looking for a plane ride. So that's Kyle. It's like, he won't even wait," Kurt Busch said. "We shared a plane ride earlier this year, I think it was Phoenix where he won. And I had to sit there and wait for him to do his little Victory Lane thing. So, it'll be fine. We're going over his house tomorrow, actually, for a little get together on a Sunday off and I'm gonna plop the trophy down right on his kitchen counter."--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com
2 days agoOakland Athletics starting pitcher Homer Bailey, who was acquired from the Royals on Sunday, will make his debut for the team on Wednesday against the Mariners. The 33-year-old veteran hasn't moved the needle much in fantasy this year with his 4.80 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 81 strikeouts in 90 innings over 18 starts for Kansas City. However, his fantasy value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues receives a boost with a move to a very pitcher-friendly park and an improved lineup around him. He'll certainly have a little more streaming appeal on Wednesday against a Seattle team that was no hit on Friday night.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Martin Gallegos
2 days agoSan Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that third baseman Evan Longoria (foot) is dealing with plantar fasciitis, but the hope is that he can return to the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader on Monday against the Rockies. The fading veteran is hitting just .239/.317/.446 with 13 home runs, 38 runs, 39 RBI and two steals in 276 at-bats, so this is just more bad news. Hopefully he can play through the ailment effectively, but we don't have much hope that his numbers will improve drastically the rest of the way. If Longo is forced to miss any extended time because of his foot injury, Pablo Sandoval would likely see most of the starts at the hot corner in San Fran.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: San Jose Mercury News - Kerry Crowley

2 days agoCincinnati Reds outfielder Jesse Winker (side) was removed from the game early on Sunday after grimacing after swinging and missing at a pair of pitches in the sixth inning. Winker signaled an injury to the left side of his body. While more details will emerge on Winker's status either later Sunday or Monday, this injury could be related to an oblique pull, which would almost certainly require Winker to take a trip to the injured list. The good news is he had a single and two RBI in four plate appearances before he left Sunday. The 25-year-old is slashing a mediocre .250/.328/.462 with 13 home runs, 38 runs and 29 RBI on the season. If he's forced to miss time with his injury, Phillip Ervin, who had six hits on Saturday, would see regular playing time.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Cincinnati Enquirer - Bobby Nightengale

2 days agoLos Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (calf) was removed from the game early on Sunday but is considered day-to-day with right calf tightness. The 27-year-old superstar was hitless in his lone plate appearance before departing. His fantasy owners can breathe easy, though, as Trout has a good chance to return to the lineup on Monday. He's hitting a robust .305/.455/.666 with 20 doubles, a triple, 30 home runs, 74 runs, 75 RBI and eight steals in 402 plate appearances. Trout remains one of the best players on the planet, if not the best.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Angels Twitter

2 days agoNew York Yankees starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery (elbow, shoulder) threw batting practice recently, and manager Aaron Boone thinks that Montgomery could still play a late-season role for the team. Even if the left-hander does return later this year, he's unlikely to move the needle for fantasy owners at all. The 26-year-old is recovering from Tommy John surgery and a shoulder setback and hasn't pitched at all this season. You're better off avoiding him when he returns and checking back in for the 2020 season.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Bryan Hoch
2 days agoChicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson (ankle) took ground balls on Sunday but isn't real close to a return from his high right ankle sprain. "He’s still not pushing off that leg as well as we’d like but he’s healing," manager Rick Renteria said. Anderson is unlikely to return before next month, but fantasy owners must be patient and continue stashing him in all leagues after the 26-year-old has hit an impressive .317/.342/.491 with 11 home runs, 39 runs, 37 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 271 at-bats. Leury Garcia should continue to fill in at the 6 with Anderson on the shelf.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Chicago Sun-Times - Daryl Van Schouwen

2 days agoSan Francisco Giants starting pitcher Dereck Rodriguez will be the 26th man and start Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Rockies on the road on Monday. It'll likely just be a spot start for Rodriguez, who has struggled to a 5.27 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, 23 walks and 36 strikeouts in 56 1/3 innings over 17 outings (eight starts) for the Gigantes. His 2.81 ERA in his rookie season in 21 games last year was a bit of a mirage, and fantasy owners have found that out first-hand in 2019. There should be no reason to consider using him at hitter-friendly Coors Field on Monday.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: San Jose Mercury News - Kerry Crowley
2 days agoSt. Louis Cardinals outfielder Marcell Ozuna (fingers) is still dealing with swelling in his hand and hasn't been able to rebuild his grip strength yet after landing on the injured list on June 29 with small fractures in two fingers on his right hand. In the opinion of MLB.com's Jeff Jones, the end of July is probably aggressively optimistic for Ozuna's return. The 28-year-old is hitting .259/.331/.515 on the year with 20 homers, 52 runs, 62 RBI and eight stolen bases in 293 at-bats, so he's worth stashing in all formats. Harrison Bader, Dexter Fowler, Jose Martinez and Tyler O'Neill will continue to split time in the outfield until Ozuna is ready to return.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Jeff Jones

2 days agoSt. Louis Cardinals infielder Jedd Gyorko's (back, calf, wrist) wrist isn't responding well and he is still healing from a calf injury. The Cardinals are a month away from re-evaluating what his timeline looks like, and Gyorko won't disagree that it might be hard to see him returning before Sept. 1. It basically equates to a lost season for the veteran 30-year-old. Gyorko was also hitting just .196/.274/.304 with two homers, five runs, seven RBI and two steals in 56 at-bats before his injuries, so you can pretty much keep forgetting about him in fantasy for the rest of 2019.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Jeff Jones

2 days agoTampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash said that second baseman Brandon Lowe (shin) might not be back until the team's next homestand next weekend. Lowe has been out since July 2. The first-time All-Star has had a phenomenal year in 2019, slashing .276/.339/.523 with 16 home runs, 40 runs, 49 RBI and five steals in 279 at-bats. His owners must remain patient and keep him stashed, as he should continue to see regular at-bats when he comes off the injured list.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Tampa Bay Times - Marc Topkin

2 days agoWashington Nationals pitcher Austin Voth will start on Tuesday on the road against the Orioles. While the matchup is the best a pitcher can have in 2019, Voth still isn't a recommended fantasy streamer unless you're desperate in an NL-only league. The 27-year-old right-hander has a 5.52 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, 16 strikeouts and five walks in 14 2/3 innings in his three starts for the Nats this season. He went six innings in his first start on June 23 but hasn't gone past the fifth inning in his two starts since. There are better options at your disposal most likely.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Washington Post - Jesse Dougherty
2 days agoTampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow (arm) will have a follow-up MRI exam on Monday to determine if he can resume a throwing program. Glasnow has been out since May 10 and then had a setback in June which will likely keep him out until late August or longer. The young right-hander was well on his way to a breakout season before his ailment, going 6-1 with a 1.86 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 55 strikeouts in 48 1/3 innings over his eight starts. The 25-year-old's upside is through the roof, so he should remain stashed in all leagues. Hopefully he can pick up right where he left off.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Tampa Bay Times - Marc Topkin
2 days agoMinnesota Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario (ankle) did some running, outfield work and hitting on Sunday and could return from the injured list on Tuesday. Rosario is on the cusp of a return and should be stashed in all leagues after hitting .282/.312/.529 with 20 home runs, 51 runs, 60 RBI and three stolen bases in his 308 at-bats before his injury. The 27-year-old is one of the more underrated fantasy outfielders. Rosario has been out since June 26, but his owners will want to get him back in their lineups immediately when he returns.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Do-Hyoung Park

2 days agoToronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said that pitcher Jacob Waguespack is likely to start on Tuesday against the Red Sox. Sean Reid-Foley is also a possibility next Thursday in place of Clayton Richard (lat), who landed on the injured list on Sunday. Waguespack, 25, has a 5.00 ERA in nine relief innings with 11 strikeouts for Toronto this season. He's sporting a 5.30 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 8.9 K/9 in 11 starts and one relief appearance in 52 2/3 innings at Triple-A Buffalo in 2019 and should be avoided at all costs across the board against the strong Boston lineup this week.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Sportsnet.ca - Shi Davidi
2 days agoBaltimore Orioles starting pitcher Aaron Brooks will make the start on Wednesday against the Nationals. Brooks tossed 2 2/3 scoreless innings against the Rays on Saturday and might get a chance to prove himself in the starting rotation. The 29-year-old right-hander had a 5.01 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 7.7 K/9 in 15 outings (six starts) for Oakland before landing in Baltimore. The O's don't have any better options that Brooks to be honest, so he could stick in the rotation if he's serviceable. Those that are desperate in AL-only leagues could look to Brooks, but he should be avoided in all other formats on Wednesday and moving forward.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MASN Sports - Roch Kubatko
2 days agoThe San Diego Padres have placed a high price tag on closer Kirby Yates as the trade deadline approaches, according to other teams. Unless another team steps up and makes a big offer, Yates is likely staying in San Diego. It makes sense for the Friars to have a high asking price on their lone All-Star this year as they remain in wild-card contention to begin the second half of the season. Yates has been excellent, posting a 1.10 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, major league-leading 30 saves and 64 K's in 41 innings this year.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN - Buster Olney
2 days agoTexas Rangers starting pitcher Ariel Jurado allowed five runs in four innings against the Astros Sunday. Jurado allowed seven hits and walked four against only three strikeouts in the rough outing. Jurado has had some decent games this season, but they are too few and far between to be a usable fantasy option. His 16.9 percent strikeout rate is near the bottom of starting pitcher ranks and he gives up too much hard contact for someone who doesn't get the strikeouts. Jurado should be on waivers in virtually all leagues when he makes his next start next Saturday against the Astros again.--Mike Schwarzenbach - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 days agoSan Francisco Giants third baseman Evan Longoria left Sunday's matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers due to foot discomfort. That's a pretty generic injury so we will see how this story develops. Longoria, 33, is on the back end of his career, but has wielded an average bat this season, hitting .239/.317/.446. Having AT&T as a home park has hurt his fantasy value, however. If he's out for any length of time, he can be dropped by any manager who is out of IL spots.--Nate Green - RotoBallerSource: Maria Guardado, MLB.com

2 days agoPhiladelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a win over the Nationals. Realmuto opened the scoring for the Phillies with an RBI single in the fourth inning then took starter Anibal Sanchez deep in the sixth for his 11th home run of the season. Realmuto has been a mild disappointment in fantasy given his sky-high preseason expectations, but he's still batting a respectable .275 with 44 RBI. Realmuto is making hard contact at a career-high 44.1 percent rate and is hitting 23.7 percent line drives so as long as he keeps those numbers up he could be in for a huge second half. If the Realmuto owner was expecting more, now could be a good time to make a trade offer for one of the few difference makers at the catcher position.--Mike Schwarzenbach - RotoBallerSource: MLB

2 days agoNew York Yankees outfielder Cameron Maybin (calf), who suffered a left calf strain on June 21, is on the cusp of beginning a rehab assignment. He ran outside for the first time on Saturday and has been working on a treadmill over the last week. Manager Aaron Boone said that Maybin will ramp up baseball activities this week. Maybin was a pleasant surprise for a depleted Yankees outfield before his injury, and he had multi-hit games in half of the last 12 contests he played in. The veteran was hitting .314 with a .391 on-base percentage, 14 RBI, five home runs and six stolen bases in his 42 games. The 32-year-old has been good this year, but his playing time will be in question when he's healthy enough to return.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: New York Post - Mollie Walker

2 days agoToronto Blue Jays first baseman Rowdy Tellez was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo Sunday. Tellez had an .804 OPS as recently as May 23, but since then he has hit just .195/.238/.373 in 34 games. Tellez was losing playing time as well, which had reduced his ownership to mostly AL-only rosters. With the news of his demotion, he can finally be dropped everywhere, with the possible exception of some dynasty leagues, as he's still just 24.--Nate Green - RotoBallerSource: Gregor Chisholm, Twitter

2 days agoPhiladelphia Phillies closer Hector Neris struck out the side in the top of the ninth before his team walked off with a win against the Nationals. Neris was dominant Sunday needing only 14 pitches to pick up three strikeouts and set up the walk-off win. Neris has had his rough outings this season, such as his blown save Saturday, but has been a stable closing option for the Phillies and fantasy owners alike. Neris has 17 saves on the season and is also contributing elsewhere with a 3.43 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. His 18 percent swinging strike rate is fifth among all qualified relievers and it's lead to 53 strikeouts in 39 1/3 innings this season. Neris is must-own in any category-based format but also has appeal in points leagues as long as he remains the undisputed closer in Philadelphia.--Mike Schwarzenbach - RotoBallerSource: MLB
