All Player News
  • CIN Third Baseman #7
    Steer is back in the cleanup spot for the first time since September 10, 2023. The 26-year-old has proven that last season wasn’t just a one off as he’s been the best offensive player for the Reds so far in 2024. Through 12 games, Steer is slashing .372/.471.721 with three home runs and his 15 RBI are tied for the most in the majors.
  • DET Center Fielder #31
    This is the first time Greene is hitting leadoff since September 28, 2022. The 23-year-old outfielder will look to be a spark at the top of the lineup as he’s posted a .433 on base percentage over his past seven games. Greene has recorded at least one hit and scored a run in each of his past three games.
  • BAL Center Fielder #17
    After coming off a historical series against the Red Sox, Cowser is getting rewarded with batting after former AL Rookie of the Year Gunnar Henderson. Cowser racked up 10 RBI against Boston earlier this week, the most RBI by an Orioles player in a series at Fenway Park. Through his first 11 major league games, Cowser is slashing an absurd .458/.462/.917 across 26 plate appearances.
  • TB Second Baseman #8
    The 29-year-old second baseman lands on the injured list after he suffered the injury during warmups prior to Tuesday’s game against the Angels. He’ll likely be sidelined for at least a few weeks, given he’s also suffered some side tightness on his left side. Curtis Mead will likely take over keystone duties while Lowe isn’t available.
  • NYM Catcher #4
    A union invesitgation found complaints from other agents about improper benefits given to players under the agency, according to the report. Rimas Sports, which was launched around this time last year by Puerto Rican rapper and singer Bad Bunny, focused on signing Latin American players such as Francisco Alvarez, Ezequiel Tovar, Santiago Espinal, Mets INF prospect Ronny Mauricio and Los Angeles Dodgers C prospect Diego Cartaya. “At Rimas Sports, we uphold the highest standards of professionalism and integrity of our industry,” the company said in a statement. “Out of respect for an ongoing process within the context of the MLBPA Agent Regulations, we will refrain from making any comments at this time. We remain committed to continue serving our clients with excellence.” The agency has the right to appeal, but there is no word if Arroyo will challenge the decision made by the MLBPA.
  • CLE Starting Pitcher #59
    The game has been rescheduled as a split doubleheader on Saturday, April 13. Carlos Carrasco and Clarke Schmidt were the probable starters for Friday’s matchup and will likely be the starters for the first game of the doubleheader.
  • BOS Third Baseman #29
    The 28-year-old will either be replacing Rafael Devers or Romy Gonzalez, with both of them having a chance at landing on the injured list prior to Friday’s series opener against the Angels. If it is Devers, it’s a tough blow for fantasy managers as the the third baseman was a projected second-round pick in fantasy drafts this spring and has got off to a slow start.
  • TB Relief Pitcher #40
    The 30-year-old has appeared in 30 major-league games, and hasn’t made a start in almost five years. Waguespack has been operating as a reliever in the early portion of the season for the Rays and in his three appearances, he’s allowed six earned runs in six innings pitched. He has a career 4.13 ERA, 1.35 WHIP with a 50/25 K/BB ratio across 65 1/3 innings as a starter.
  • ATL Starting Pitcher #61
    Vines will join the Braves’ pitching mix after the team elected to option Allan Winans back to Triple-A following his start against the Mets on Thursday. It appears the Braves are seeking for a potential fifth starter to fill the massive gap left due to Spencer Strider being placed on the injured list. Vines could be used over the next few days and allow the rotation to stay on schedule for the rest of the Braves’ starters.
  • TOR Starting Pitcher #29
    Rodriguez, who was signed to a five-year, $32 million contract over the winter, will be summoned after two strong appearances at Triple-A Buffalo in which he struck out 10 over 6 1/3 scoreless innings. It’s unclear if he’ll immediately replace Bowden Francis in the rotation or perhaps piggyback off him initially, but he’s certainly a more interesting option in fantasy leagues than Francis is. The 27-year-old Cuban hurler is worthy of a speculative roster spot, especially in deeper mixed leagues.
