  • ATL Relief Pitcher #40
    López authored yet another dominant performance, this time against a floundering Marlins lineup, piling up six strikeouts and only allowing five baserunners over seven frames. Yet, he was forced to settle for a no-decision after Atlanta’s bullpen coughed up a two-run lead in the ninth inning. The 30-year-old converted reliever has been a revelation this season, allowing one earned run or fewer and completing six frames in four consecutive starts to kick off his Braves debut. He’ll bring a microscopic 0.72 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 24/8 K/BB ratio across 25 innings (four starts) into a road tilt on Tuesday against the Mariners in Seattle.
  • CHC Center Fielder #24
    There isn’t a reported designation for Bellinger, but given it’s a rib fracture, fantasy managers can expect the 28-year-old to miss an extended period of time. X-rays were initially negative, but a CT scan on Wednesday morning revealed a fracture in his right rib after he collided into the centerfield wall against the Astros on Tuesday.
  • BOS Starting Pitcher #66
    The hits keep on coming for the Red Sox as their young ace will be sidelined for at least the next couple weeks. Bello has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his five starts and threw at least seven strikeouts in his last two starts this season. It’s a tough pill to swallow for Boston as the team leaned on Bello as they manage injuries to its rotation, but now he’s a part of that issue for Alex Cora and his roster.
  • SF Starting Pitcher #7
    Brutal. The reigning NL Cy Young will be sidelined for at least the next couple weeks after being one of the big names in the free agent market this offseason. In his three starts with the Giants, Snell is 0-3 with a 11.57 ERA, 1.97 WHIP and a 12/5 K/BB ratio. The 31-year-old southpaw hasn’t always had his best stuff at the beginning of the season, but hitting the injured list after he signed a two-year, $62 million contract is disaster for a Giants team that came into the season riddled with injuries to their pitching staff.
  • STL Right Fielder #18
    It wasn’t the major league start the 21-year-old outfielder expected and because of that, the team will send him to Memphis to continue to develop. Walker made the Cardinals’ Opening Day roster, but slashed a horrid .155/.239/.259 in his 67 plate appearances. He didn’t record a hit in 12 of his 20 games played this season.
  • WAS Center Fielder #28
    It’s certainly not what fantasy managers want to hear after Thomas made an early exit from Tuesday’s showdown against the Dodgers after twisting his left leg on a stolen base attempt. There should be an update on his status prior to Wednesday’s showdown. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for the moment, but it’s possible he’ll wind up requiring a trip to the injured list.
  • CHC Center Fielder #24
    Cubs manager Craig Counsell told reporters afterwards that X-rays came back negative on Bellinger’s right ribs following his early exit from Tuesday’s contest after a fourth-inning collision with the center-field wall at Wrigley Field. There should be an additional update on his status at some point on Wednesday. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for the moment.
  • ATL Starting Pitcher #54
    Fried was efficient from start to finish in this one recording the third Maddux of his career. He entered the ninth inning with just 84 pitches thrown, and needed only eight pitches in the ninth to retire the side in order. It was a much-needed solid outing for the Braves’ ace, who entered the day sporting a 7.71 ERA through his first four outings. Tuesday’s complete game marked the fifth of Fried’s career, while the shutout was the fourth he has thrown. He’ll look to follow up this outing with another strong performance on Monday against the Mariners.
  • ARI Starting Pitcher #29
    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told reporters Kelly will not require surgery to address a teres major strain in his right shoulder, but the club doesn’t know the severity or next steps for the 35-year-old veteran right-hander until he receives additional medical opinions. There should be some clarity on his return timetable in the coming days, but fantasy managers should expect him to require a lengthy absence, especially since shoulder issues can be extremely complicated matters.
  • LAA Center Fielder #27
    It’s the first time Trout has led off for Los Angeles since the second game of a late-August doubleheader against the Astros during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign. His previous appearance before that was back in early 2018. The 32-year-old generational talent is in the midst of a renaissance campaign with an .889 OPS with eight homers and five steals through 23 contests.
