  • TEX Starting Pitcher #31
    Scherzer threw another live batting practice session on Friday without any issues and has been cleared to take the next step in his recovery. He’s likely going to need two or three starts in the minor leagues before he’s ready to join the Rangers’ rotation, but as long as he avoids any setbacks we should see him in a Rangers’ uniform in mid-May.
  • MIL Center Fielder #11
    After Brice Turang homered in the fourth inning, Chourio made it back-to-back with a solo blast off Miles Mikolas. He drew a walk in the sixth and came around to score on a base hit by William Contreras. Chourio got on base with another walk in the seventh inning and stole second before scoring on a throwing error. A base hit in the ninth would drive in another run as the Brewers broke the game open. The 20-year-old outfielder is now slashing .235/.293/.426 with four homers, 13 RBI, and four steals across 75 plate appearances, raising his OPS in this one game from .626 to .719.
  • BOS First Baseman #36
    Casas drew a walk in his lone at-bat during the first inning, but he did have an awkward swing during the plate appearance where it appeared that he may have tweaked something — perhaps an oblique. Bobby Dalbec then slid over to first base when the Red Sox took the field, with Pablo Reyes entering the game at third base. Expect the team to provide an update on his status as soon as one becomes available.
  • TEX First Baseman #30
    The 28-year-old first baseman had been shelved since late March due to a strained oblique. He’ll resume his regular role as the Rangers’ first baseman and should once again find himself hitting in the middle of the lineup. Jared Walsh was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
  • NYY Left Fielder #22
    Soto was responsible for New York’s lone extra-base hit of the contest and accounted for half of their hit total as Rays starter Zach Eflin and a quartet of relievers combined on a 10-inning, four-hit shutout. The 25-year-old generational superstar is off to a blistering-hot start in his Yankees debut, batting .354 (28-for-79) with 13 runs scored, five homers, 20 RBI and one steal through 21 contests.
  • TB Starting Pitcher #24
    Eflin and opposing starter Nestor Cortes matched zeroes into the late innings of Saturday’s rare pitcher’s duel at Yankee Stadium with neither side breaking through until extra innings. The 30-year-old righty induced 12 whiffs and finished with a near-elite 36 percent CWS, needing just 78 pitches (49 strikes) to complete six shutout frames. He’ll bring an impressive 3.68 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 26/2 K/BB ratio across 29 1/3 innings (five starts) into an extremely favorable road tilt on Friday against the White Sox.
  • NYY Starting Pitcher #65
    Cortes and opposing starter Zach Eflin locked horns in a throwback pitcher’s duel during Saturday’s afternoon matinee at Yankee Stadium, trading zeroes into the late innings of this one. The 29-year-old southpaw was simply magnificent, generating 17 swinging strikes, and finishing with a 30 percent CSW, needing just 102 pitches (69 strikes) to navigate seven nearly-flawless frames. He’ll bring a solid 3.41 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 28/5 K/BB ratio across 29 innings (five starts) into a tasty home matchup on Thursday against the Athletics.
  • HOU Starting Pitcher #59
    Valdez progressed to throwing off a mound for the first time since landing on the injured list back in early April with left elbow inflammation. Astros manager Joe Espada told reporters the 30-year-old southpaw could potentially return without needing a minor league rehab assignment. However, he’s likely going to need to face hitters in a live batting practice session befoe he’s cleared to rejoin Houston’s injury-depleted starting rotation mix.
  • NYM Catcher #4
    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza told reporters Alvarez is still undergoing additional testing to determine the severity of the injury. However, it’s pretty much a best-case scenario outcome for the Mets, and fantasy managers, for the moment as Alvarez has yet to be diagnosed with a fracture, or a torn ligament, which would result in a much lengthier absence. There should be some clarity on his potential return timeline at some point in the next few days. The 22-year-old backstop suffered the injury when he stumbled rounding first base during Friday’s series opener against the Dodgers. At this point, it doesn’t sound like he’ll wind up missing more than a couple weeks.
  • BOS Third Baseman #11
    Devers remains out of the lineup for the third consecutive contest due to a bone bruise in his left knee. The Red Sox are understandably exercising some extreme caution with their 27-year-old franchise cornerstone and it’s unclear if he’ll be ready to return for Sunday’s series finale. He’s played in just three of Boston’s last 10 games since April 11 due to injury. It’ll be Bobby Dalbec once again at the hot corner on Saturday in his absence.
