All Player News
  • BOS Third Baseman #11
    Devers remains absent from Boston’s lineup for the third consecutive contest due to an ongoing left shoulder soreness. The positive news here is that all indications are he won’t require a trip to the injured list and the Red Sox are merely proceeding with an abundance of caution since it’s so early in the year. It’ll be Bobby Dalbec taking over at the hot corner on Saturday in his absence. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for now.
  • BAL Second Baseman #7
    It’s a much needed break for Holliday, who appears to be pressing a bit at the plate in search of his first career hit. The 20-year-old top prospect, who struck out all three times up during Friday’s series opener against the Brewers, has gone 0-for-11 with seven strikeouts in his first three contests since being called up earlier this week. It’s not unprecedented for top prospects to struggle initially as they adjust to everyday life in the majors, so fantasy managers should continue to exercise patience here. It’s only a matter of time before he heats up.
  • CIN Shortstop #44
    De La Cruz finds himself towards the bottom of Cincinnati’s lineup card facing southpaw Garrett Crochet, despite batting .533 (8-for-15) with four homers, seven RBI, one steal and zero strikeouts over his last four games. It’s admittedly an extremely small sample, but it feels like only a matter of time before Reds manager David Bell bumps him up a couple spots, especially if his plate discipline continues to improve.
  • TOR Starting Pitcher #29
    Rodriguez will make his highly-anticipated major-league debut on Saturday against the Rockies at the Rogers Centre. It’s an extremely favorable matchup, which gives him some immediate appeal for fantasy managers as a streaming candidate. The 27-year-old Cuban right-hander, who signed a five-year, $32 million contract in the offseason, looked extremely sharp recently for Triple-A Buffalo, striking out 10 batters over 6 1/3 shutout innings (two starts). There are some lingering questions concerning how he’ll hold up with a full starter’s workload moving forward, but he’s worthy of a speculative roster spot in all fantasy formats based on talent alone.
  • MIN Shortstop #4
    The Twins haven’t revealed the results of Correa’s MRI, which will determine how long he’s likely to remain sidelined. The 29-year-old superstar shortstop suffered the right oblique strain during Friday’s contest against the Tigers during a third-inning at-bat. There should be some much-needed clarity on his return timeline at some point this weekend, but fantasy managers should anticipate him missing at least a few weeks. It’ll most likely be Willi Castro and Austin Martin filling in at shortstop in his absence with top prospect Brooks Lee on the shelf in the minors due to injury.
  • CIN Starting Pitcher #40
    Lodolo will take the ball on Saturday afternoon against the White Sox for his first big-league start since last May. The 26-year-old southpaw was establishing himself as a potential upper-echelon fantasy starter before suffering a left calf injury that wound up keeping him on the shelf for nearly an entire year. Given his immense strikeout potential, Lodolo figures to make a significant impact for fantasy managers, if he can stay healthy.
  • NYY Shortstop #11
    Volpe finds himself atop New York’s lineup for the second consecutive contest to open Saturday’s twin bill in Cleveland, with a slumping Gleyber Torres batting fifth in this one. The 22-year-old shortstop’s offseason swing adjustments have led to a sizzling-hot start this season, which includes a .372/.460/.581 triple-slash line with 11 runs scored, two homers, six RBI and three steals in 51 plate appearances over 12 contests.
  • DET Center Fielder #31
    Greene has been elevated to Detroit’s leadoff spot for the second consecutive contest with Parker Meadows dropped to the lower third of the order. It’s not a completely unexpected development, especially considering Meadows’ struggles at the outset of the season, as the move should result in a few additional runs scored, while also reducing his overall RBI opportunities. He went 1-for-3 with a walk and a pair of runs scored during Friday’s showdown against the Twins.
  • ATL Starting Pitcher #99
    The positive news for the Braves, and fantasy managers, is that Strider underwent an internal brace procedure to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, not a full Tommy John ligament reconstruction, which expedites his return timeline considerably. The 25-year-old fantasy ace will miss the remainder of the 2024 campaign, but should be ready to return in the early stages of next season.
  • LAD Starting Pitcher #21
    Buehler was cruising along, scattering three hits and issuing one walk, before being hit by a comebacker on his pitching hand during his second inning of work. He managed to remain in the contest initially to finish out the frame, but was pulled shortly afterwards out of an abundance of caution. The positive news here is that he apparently managed to avoid serious injury. The hard-throwing 29-year-old fantasy ace, who is in the final stages of his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery, is expected to make another rehab start before he’s ready to make his season debut.
