  • MIA Starting Pitcher #29
    It’s a virtual lock that Garrett will land on the injured list later this weekend and it’s yet another devastating hit to Miami’s injury-depleted starting rotation. At this point, there’s almost nobody left from the Marlins’ pre-season pitching plans. There should be an update on the 26-year-old southpaw’s status once he undergoes some additional testing and imaging to determine the extent of the matter.
  • ARI Catcher #14
    Arizona has clearly opted not to take any chances here and will shut Moreno down for at least the next couple days after he was lifted from Friday’s game against the Phillies with a left thumb sprain. The 24-year-old backstop doesn’t appear to be facing a lengthy absence since X-rays came back negative for any fractures, but the Diamondbacks can’t really afford to play shorthanded at catcher.
  • TEX Starting Pitcher #31
    The declaration comes directly from Scherzer, so we’re going to take his word for it. We’re still not sure why the decision was made to bump him back an extra day, but it doesn’t have significant fantasy ramifications. The 39-year-old veteran right-hander will make his season debut later this weekend after missing the first couple months of the year recovering from offseason back surgery and a thumb issue that cropped up during his rehabilitation process. He’s no longer an upper-echelon fantasy contributor, but he’s still capable of making an impact, when healthy, especially in deeper mixed leagues.
  • MIA Starting Pitcher #44
    Luzardo finds himself on the injured list for the second time this season and the timing is tricky with the trade deadline looming large in a couple weeks. The 26-year-old southpaw is expected to be one of the most highly-coveted names at the deadline, but it’s going to take a considerable haul to pry him away from Miami since he won’t be a free agent until 2027. No word yet on how long he’ll wind up sidelined, and we’re all aware of how complicated back issues can be for pitchers. There should be some much-needed clarity on his status in the coming days.
  • SF Starting Pitcher #7
    Snell, who has been on the shelf since early June recovering from a left groin strain, will be followed by fellow veteran southpaw Robbie Ray, who is in the final stages of his rehabilitation from last year’s Tommy John surgery. The hope here is that Snell, who is slated to throw roughly 50 pitches on Sunday, will be ready to jump back into San Francisco’s starting rotation after a brief rehab assignment.
  • PHI Starting Pitcher #61
    The long-term extension, which was first reported earlier on Saturday by the New York Post’s Jon Heyman, is now official. The deal essentially buys out Sanchez’s remaining arbitration-eligible seasons with club options for his first two free agent years. No word yet on the exact financial terms. It wasn’t looking good for Philadelphia a couple years ago when Curtis Mead blossomed into one of the most promising prospects in baseball after being shipped to Tampa Bay for Sánchez. However, the pendulum has swung back the other way with Mead struggling in the majors and Sánchez turning into a reliable mid-rotation stabilizer. This extension feels like a solid decision that works for both parties.
  • KC Starting Pitcher #52
    Wacha will take the ball for Saturday’s matchup against the defending World Series champions at Globe Life Field following a three-weeks absence due to a fractured left foot. The 32-year-old righty has recorded a serviceable 4.24 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 56/20 K/BB ratio across 68 innings (12 starts) this season in his Kansas City debut.
  • SEA Shortstop #7
    Polanco appears to be close to rejoining Seattle’s infield mix as he’s been out since late May due to a right hamstring strain. The 30-year-old second baseman has dealt with seemingly countless leg issues over the past few seasons, which have impacted his fantasy appeal, but there’s still enough talent here to think he can make an impact in deeper mixed leagues, if he can stay on the field for an extended stretch.
  • MIN Shortstop #80
    Lee’s torrid stretch since returning to action earlier this month for Triple-A St. Paul continued on Friday as he collected two more hits, raising his batting average to .351 (20-for-57) with four homers through 13 games since June 5. The 23-year-old top prospect is on the precipice of helping Minnesota at the highest level, but it’s probably going to take an injury or trade deadline decision for the Twins to open up a path to everyday at-bats on a more permanent basis with both Carlos Correa and Royce Lewis healthy at the moment. It would make sense to move Lewis to designated hitter, at least part time, if they feel Lee is ready to handle the hot corner at the highest level.
  • BAL Third Baseman #86
    Mayo hasn’t skipped a beat since returning earlier this week for Triple-A Norfolk following an extended absence recovering from a fractured rib that he suffered last month. The 22-year-old top prospect has five hits, including three extra-base knocks, in 12 at-bats over three games since making it back to the upper minors. He’s up to 14 round-trippers on the season and seemingly doesn’t have a ton left to prove in the minors, the problem is finding him regular at-bats in Baltimore’s crowded infield mix.
