  • PHI Starting Pitcher #61
    Sánchez walked none and struck out four in the 80-pitch outing. He gave up a 387-foot fly to Christian Walker in the first that would have been a homer in nine ballparks, but CBP wasn’t one of them. Sánchez has still allowed just one homer in 84 1/3 innings for the year. He’s 5-3 with a 2.67 ERA.
  • SD Right Fielder #23
    Tatis will miss his second consecutive contest after being drilled in the left triceps by a pitch during Friday’s showdown at Petco Park. If there’s a positive takeaway here it’s that the 25-year-old fantasy superstar didn’t need to undergo any precautionary imaging and is merely day-to-day with a triceps contusion. He’s also been playing through a lingering quad issue, which might be the more pressing issue at the moment. There should be a decision from San Diego concerning his status at some point early next week.
  • NYY Third Baseman #5
    Davis provides New York with some additional experienced infield depth moving forward after being designated for assignment earlier this week by Oakland. The 31-year-old corner infielder holds a pedestrian 670 OPS with four homers and five RBI in 135 plate appearances in 39 games this season. He figures to get some time at third base or designated hitter against left-handed pitching while Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) is on the shelf.
  • PIT Relief Pitcher #51
    Pirates general manager Ben Cherington said Sunday during a local radio interview that he hopes the injury is minor. The 29-year-old stopper was unavailable during Saturday’s game against the Rays due to left side tightness and is going to get some extra time off to rest and recover. There should be some clarity on his status in the coming days. It’ll presumably be Aroldis Chapman handling the closing duties for Pittsburgh during his absence.
  • TEX Starting Pitcher #31
    Scherzer will make his highly-anticipated season debut on Sunday afternoon for the defending World Series champions against the Royals at Globe Life Field. The 39-year-old veteran right-hander missed the first few months of the year recovering from offseason back surgery, and a nerve-related issue in his thumb that sprung up during his rehabilitation process. He’s no longer an elite fantasy contributor at this advanced stage of his legendary career. However, he’s likely to have flashes of occasional brilliance, and make a tangible impact for fantasy managers, even in shallow mixed leagues, when healthy.
  • TOR Shortstop #13
    Wow. According to a team statement, Martinez tested positive for clomiphene, a performance-enhancing substance. Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins added “We were both surprised and disappointed to learn of Orelvis Martinez’s suspension. We will do everything in our power to ensure Orelvis has learned from this mistake. Orelvis has our support and we know he will get through this.” The 22-year-old top prospect made his big-league debut earlier this week, going 1-for-3 at the dish, after posting an .867 OPS with 16 homers across 63 games this season for Triple-A Buffalo. He can be dropped in all re-draft formats as his season is ostensibly over.
  • MIA Starting Pitcher #29
    The hits just keep on coming to Miami’s injury-ravaged starting rotation with Garrett becoming the latest to fall victim to the injury bug. The major concern here is that forearm flexor tendon strains are often a precursor to more significant elbow issues, which could wind up leading to surgery. The 26-year-old southpaw will presumably undergo a battery of tests to determine the severity of the issue after experiencing elbow discomfort earlier this week. Barring an unexpected development, fantasy managers shouldn’t anticipate him returning anytime soon.
  • NYY Right Fielder #27
    Stanton is slated to undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the severity and how much time he’ll likely wind up sidelined. Fantasy managers should anticipate him missing at least a few weeks, even if it’s a low-grade strain. The 34-year-old slugger, who has 18 homers in 69 games this season, suffered the injury during Saturday’s contest against the Braves. The timing is extremely unfortunate for the Yankees, and fantasy managers, as there isn’t a clear replacement for him at the moment with top prospect Jasson Domínguez on the shelf at Triple-A due to an oblique strain.
  • PHI Starting Pitcher #99
    The move is now official. It’ll presumably be Spencer Turnbull stepping in to take Walker’s rotation spot to face his former team during Wednesday’s series finale in Detroit. Walker has been dealing with a blister issue on his right finger, which has impacted his ability to command his arsenal of late. The hope here is that some extra time off will help put the issue to bed and lead to improved results.
  • WAS Center Fielder #50
    He’s back. Wood took big-league southpaw Joey Lucchesi deep to left-center field for an extremely impressive fifth-inning solo shot. It was his 10th round-tripper of the season and first time going deep since returning earlier this month from a hamstring strain that cost him a couple weeks. The 21-year-old has blossomed into arguably the top prospect in baseball at this juncture and doesn’t appear too far off from making his highly-anticipated arrival in Washington.
