Latest Player News

All Player News
  • NYY Right Fielder #99
    Excellent news. It’s an extremely positive update from Judge, who added that it’s possible he won’t wind up missing any time at all. The 32-year-old superstar was sent for additional imaging and further evaluation at a local hospital after being hit on the left hand by a 95-mph fastball during Tuesday’s game against the Orioles, but it sounds like he’s managed to avoid serious injury. It’s a massive relief for the Yankees, and fantasy managers as well. He’s day-to-day for the moment.
  • BAL Third Baseman #11
    Westburg collided awkwardly with Yankees slugger Juan Soto while fielding a first-inning grounder at third base and was lifted from the contest in the ensuing frame. It sounds like his early exit was merely for precautionary reasons, but he’ll presumably undergo some additional testing to rule out anything serious. The 25-year-old holds an .836 OPS with 11 homers and six steals in 275 plate appearances this season. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for now.
  • TEX Starting Pitcher #31
    It’s a soft landing spot for Scherzer, who is finally set to make his season debut after undergoing offseason back surgery and dealing with a nerve-related thumb issue during his rehabilitation process. The 39-year-old veteran isn’t the fantasy stalwart anymore from earlier in his career, but can still make an impact for fantasy managers on a per-start basis moving forward.
  • LAA Center Fielder #27
    Trout added that his recovery from last month’s surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee has been progressing slower than he wants, which doesn’t exactly inspire confidence that he’ll make it back at any point in the near future. The 32-year-old generational talent is roughly six weeks removed from the procedure and there isn’t any sort of timeline for his potential return at this juncture.
  • HOU Starting Pitcher #35
    Houston’s decision to put Verlander on the shelf doesn’t come as much of a surprise after skipper Joe Espada told reporters earlier on Tuesday that the 41-year-old veteran was progressing “slower than expected” in his recovery from a lingering neck issue, which has been bothering him for a couple weeks now. He’ll get an extended break in an effort to put the issue to bed. No word yet on how the Astros will fill his spot in their injury-depleted starting rotation moving forward.
  • BOS Shortstop #70
    Hamilton has rapidly emerged as a relevant fantasy contributor over the last few weeks, batting .323 (31-for-96) with three homers and 14 stolen bases over his last 30 contests. The 26-year-old speedster was removed from Monday’s game against Toronto with left side discomfort, but it doesn’t sound like he’s going to wind up requiring a trip to the injured list at the moment. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for now.
  • NYY Catcher #93
    Rice ascends to the majors in the wake of Anthony Rizzo’s forearm fracture and is expected to receive the majority of the playing time at the cold corner moving forward. He’s at first base and batting sixth on Tuesday night against the Orioles in his big-league debut. The 25-year-old burgeoning slugger, who has recorded a sublime 925 OPS with 15 homers and nine steals across 60 games this season in the upper minors, is extremely appealing for fantasy managers since he’ll still have catcher eligibility moving forward. He doesn’t strike out a ton for a power-hitting backstop and also offers a little bit of speed as well for fantasy purposes. He’s worthy of a speculative roster spot in all fantasy leagues until further notice.
  • NYY First Baseman #48
    Rizzo is expected to miss roughly two months after suffering a fracture in his right forearm last weekend during a first-base collision. The 34-year-old veteran first baseman hasn’t made much of an offensive impact, but he remains an excellent defender at the cold corner, which is where his loss will be felt the most over the next few weeks. There’s a chance he’s back at some point in mid-August.
  • TOR Shortstop #13
    It unfortunately took an injury to Bo Bichette (calf) to happen, but Martinez is coming up for a chance to make his MLB debut in the coming days. The 22-year-old is the best hitting prospect in the Toronto system, and he’s socked 16 homers with an .866 OPS thus far for Triple-A Buffalo. He’s alsos truck out 65 times in 63 games, and swing-and-miss is going to likely be an issue. The power is great, but keep in mind that he might be a one-category player in the short term.
  • TOR Shortstop #11
    Bichette has been dealing with soreness in his right calf, and rather than wait for the infielder to get ready and play short-handed, the Blue Jays will take precaution and place the star shortstop on the injured list. He’ll miss at least a week, but a more concrete timeline should be available shortly. In the meantime, Orelvis Martinez is taking Bichette’s place on the active roster.
