6/18:The New York Mets have reportedly opened the doors to trade discussions, and “virtually everyone” is available according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. The two big fish here are obviously starting pitchers Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard, but with both being under control for awhile, dealing either might not make the most sense unless the haul is larger than expected. Perhaps the most logical name to be dealt for a potentially notable prospect would be reliever Jeurys Familia, who is a great closer when healthy and is a free agent at the end of this season. Get ready everyone, trade season is nearly upon us.--Andrew Bua - RotoBallerSource: The Athletic
6/18:Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts hit his 11th homer of the season in a 9–3 win against the Mariners. He switched into power mode, hitting three homers and six RBI in the series. Bogaerts only had 10 homers in all of 2017. He finished the game 2–for–5 with two runs and two RBI; Bogaerts could be primed for a hot streak.--Ellis Canady - RotoBallerSource:

6/18:Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Juan Nicasio (knee) and catcher Chris Hermann (oblique) were activated from the disabled list on Monday. In a corresponding move, the Mariners sent pitcher Rob Whalen and catcher David Freitas down to Triple-A Tacoma. Herrmann will take his place as Mike Zunino’s primary backup, but fantasy value may eventually lie with Nicasio in deeper leagues. His ERA stands at an ugly 5.34, but the reliever does own an outstanding 37/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 28 2/3 innings pitched. That said, he should be left on the waiver until he proves himself a reliable option in the Mariners bullpen.--Mo Castillo - RotoBallerSource: TJ Cotterill

6/18:San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers (oblique) and catcher Austin Hedges (elbow) both hit long balls during their latest rehab game on Sunday. Myers has been working his way back from the injury that landed him on the disabled list on April 29. He went 1-for-4 with the solo shot and is now 3-for-12 in three rehab games. Hedges went down on May 1 and has now played five rehab games in total, so barring any setbacks, the catcher should return to the Padres lineup soon. With that said, Hedges isn’t on the fantasy radar yet, but Myers is worth keeping an eye on. The 27-year-old’s power potential makes him an intriguing option when he returns from the DL.--Mo Castillo - RotoBallerSource: Jeff Sanders

6/18:Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin) was set to throw a bullpen session on Saturday, but it ended just 20 pitches in. Ryu has been on the 60-day disabled list with a strained left groin and had been showing positive signs towards a return with a successful bullpen session on June 12. His second bullpen session — the next step in his rehab — ended when he felt some tightness in his injured groin. Fantasy owners will probably let out a collective groan at this news, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts did not call it a setback. Nonetheless, owners who are willing to stick it through with Ryu will have to hope his rehab continues without any more surprises.--Mo Castillo - RotoBallerSource:
6/18:Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Julio Teheran (hamstring) returned from the disabled list to dominate the San Diego Padres on Sunday. The Braves secured a 4-1 victory, riding the coattails of Teheran’s resurgent performance. Making his way back from a thumb contusion, Teheran shut out the Padres for six innings. He allowed no hits and fanned a season-high 11 batters. Fantasy owners must have let out a sigh of relief as the strikeouts piled up, but the dream situation nearly turned into a nightmare in the sixth inning. Teheran’s right hamstring cramped up on him and his day ended at 95 pitches. He’s considered day-to-day now, and fantasy owners should probably take his return performance with a grain of salt considering it was against the Padres anemic offense. His next start has not yet been scheduled, but he may get the chance to face off against the disastrous Orioles next.--Mo Castillo - RotoBallerSource:
6/18:Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton had a great game overall on Sunday against the Pirates, going 3-for-4 with three singles, two steals, and an amazing diving catch at the warning track. The game was a display of Hamilton's skills of speed and solid defense. He now has a .197/.285/.282 slash line with 13 stolen bases in 67 games. Fantasy owners have come to rely on Hamilton as a top steals option, and while he now has three steals in his last three games, his pace has not been nearly what it has been for the past three seasons. He has struggled to get on base and is now batting ninth in the order, so his opportunities to steal have been limited. Hopefully he can start to get his wheels going and continue his recent steals success.--Connelly Doan - RotoBallerSource:

6/18:Tampa Bay Rays reliever Sergio Romo earned his third save of the season Sunday versus New York. He would pitch a scoreless ninth inning to maintain and close out the 3-1 lead. Romo has been serving multiple roles this season, including starting several times. This split role makes it tough for fantasy owners to use Romo. When he opens, he cannot provide either a win or a save, and he will often be facing the best part of a team's lineup. Watch the usage going forward because if Romo starts picking up a solid portion of the save opportunities, his value goes up tremendously.--Jamie Mellor - RotoBallerSource:
6/18:Houston Astros reliever Hector Rondon picked up his fourth save in six chances Sunday as the Astros won again 7-4. The offense is absolutely humming right now and the team may have found its closer for the foreseeable future. Rondon has not allowed a single run yet on the road this season in 13 1/3 innings pitched away from Minute Maid Park. Rondon is throwing some serious heat and has a ton of confidence right now. It is pretty clear the closer's job is his to lose after 2017 closer Ken Giles was used in the eighth inning of a tight game. Rondon will be a sneaky add to anyone's fantasy roster this week as the Astros have now won their last 12 games.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros

6/18:Detroit Tigers reliever Joe Jimenez worked a perfect ninth inning and struck out the side against the White Sox on Sunday to pick up his second save of the season. Normally the team's setup man, Jimenez was called upon to fill in as the closer with Shane Greene unavailable. Greene had earned saves in each of the last four games. Jimenez has been outstanding this season, posting a 2.04 ERA and 10.19 K/9 rate thus far.--Tyler Germain - RotoBallerSource: MLB

6/18:The Philadelphia Phillies headed into the ninth inning of Sunday’s series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers with a five-run lead, seemingly headed for an easy victory at Miller Park. The day after recording his first save of the month, reliever Hector Neris was summoned to record the final three outs of the game, but he wouldn’t be able to get the job done. The 29-year-old was absolutely terrible, giving up a home run, single and double to begin the frame. After recording two outs, he surrendered a three-run home run, cutting the lead to just one run. At that point, manager Gabe Kapler had seen enough, pulling Neris from the game. The Phillies would go on to finish the game, but Neris’ future in pressure situations has to be in major trouble.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: The Trentonian

6/18:Houston Astros infielder/outfielder Marwin Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with an RBI in the Astros 7-4 win on Sunday. The Astros are the hottest team in baseball and Gonzalez may possibly be one of the hottest hitters in the game. He now is hitting .459 in the month of June (17-for-37) with one home run, three triples, four doubles and five runs batted in. Fantasy owners that have been patient with Gonzalez are finally beginning to see some rewards after the versatile player got off to a horrible start this season. Over the last two weeks he has resembled more the player that drove in 90 runs in 2017 than the player that came into the month hitting only .217. Gonzalez is a player on the rise and deserves a look, if available, off the waiver wire this week.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros

6/18:As the Toronto Blue Jays fall further out of contention, it’s only natural that we’ll start to hear trade rumors surrounding some of their more productive players. One of those players will be starting pitcher J.A. Happ, who owns a 3.48 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and a 3.76 K/BB across 14 games started this season. Easily Toronto’s most productive pitcher game-in and game-out this year Happ could fetch a nice return from a team in need. According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, two of those teams could be the New York Yankees and the Seattle Mariners, who have both expressed interest in Happ. Happ makes a ton of sense for both of them, but with the trade deadline still over a month away we wouldn’t expect a quick move here. Happ going to either team would increase his chances for wins, but Yankee Stadium isn’t the most ideal choice for a home ballpark when it comes to pitching.--Andrew Bua - RotoBallerSource: Jon Morosi
6/18:The first court date for Toronto Blue Jays reliever Roberto Osuna is on Monday, but fantasy owners shouldn’t expect an outcome anytime soon. Monday’s initial hearing for Osuna’s sexual assault charge is “largely procedural”, and Osuna himself won’t even be in attendance for it. The only real purpose for this hearing is that it will set the stage for the next court hearing, likely in a few weeks. This is what our fear here was – the case isn’t likely to be resolved right away, meaning we’re still weeks away from a resolution and even more time away from learning what Osuna’s potential suspension could be. Osuna has been on administrative leave since May 8, and that isn’t changing anytime soon. Ryan Tepera will continue to handle the ninth inning for Toronto.--Andrew Bua - RotoBallerSource: Sportsnet

6/18:The bad news Mets get even more bad news. Yoenis Cespedes, who hasn't played in over a month now, was held out of rehab activities on the weekend due to continued soreness in his hip/quad. Cespedes was thought to be close to returning earlier this month, even taking part in a rehab game in the minors. Unfortunately he ended up being pulled from that game too, and now there is no timetable for his return. He will continue physical therapy and rehab on Monday, as fantasy owners desperately await for two-time All-Star to return to action.--Devon Taylor - RotoBallerSource:
