  • LAA Relief Pitcher #59
    So much for Angels manager Ron Washington’s proclamation that Soriano wouldn’t need a trip to the injured list. The 25-year-old righty was scratched from a scheduled start earlier this week due to abdominal pain and will require a couple weeks off to deal with an abdominal infection. There should be some clarity on his status in the coming days. It’s an unfortunate development for fantasy managers as he was set to face the Athletics early next week.
  • MIL Starting Pitcher #54
    The expectation all along was that Gasser was probably finished for the year, but the fact that he’s elected to undergo surgery — either a full Tommy John or less invasive internal brace procedure (A.K.A. the Seth Maness procedure) — following multiple medical opinions means he’ll miss at least the first half of the 2025 campaign as well. It’s a significant loss for Milwaukee’s starting pitching depth as he was just starting to establish himself at the highest level. There should be an exact timetable following next week’s procedure.
  • OAK Second Baseman #20
    Gelof’s home run was his eighth of the season and his third consecutive game with a home run. He’s still just hitting .202 on the season, but the power is starting to show up. Gelof hit 14 home runs in 69 games last year and could be a decent power source in the middle infield going forward.
  • SD Starting Pitcher #11
    No definitive date yet for Darvish to rejoin San Diego’s starting rotation, but he figures to take the ball at some point during their next series against the Nationals, most likely on Tuesday in place of rookie Adam Mazur. The 37-year-old veteran righty made it through Wednesday’s minor league rehab outing for High-A Fort Wayne without any issues and is on track to return next week. He’s been out since late May recovering from a groin strain.
  • COL Shortstop #1
    Rockies manager Bud Black characterized it as a mild strain and similar to one he was dealing with at Double-A Hartford earlier this year. We’ll see. Amador went 1-for-3 with a single prior to being lifted from Thursday’s contest against the Dodgers in the eighth inning and could wind up requiring a trip to the injured list if he’s unable to play through the injury. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for now.
  • LAD Starting Pitcher #96
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed to reporters following Thursday’s win over the Rockies that Knack will get the ball to kick off the Freeway Series against the Angels. The 26-year-old righty draws the starting assignment in place of an injured Yoshinobu Yamamoto. He’s posted a respectable 2.61 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 16/6 K/BB ratio across 20 2/3 innings (four starts) this season in the majors. He figures to get some extended run with both Yamamoto and Walker Buehler on the shelf for an extended period. There’s definitely some streaming appeal here for fantasy managers in deeper mixed leagues.
  • NYY Second Baseman #25
    Torres was 1-for-2 with a solo homer before leaving the contest after five innings with New York trailing 11-5 at the time. It sounds like his early exit was merely for precautionary reasons, but that’s purely speculation at this juncture. There should be an update on his status shortly.
  • WAS Shortstop #5
    Nationals manager Dave Martinez told reporters Thursday that it isn’t a serious concern. We’re not medical professionals, but a Ganglion cyst is basically a non-cancerous lump that appears along the joints of the wrists or hands. It doesn’t sound like a serious concern moving forward as the issue mighty simply go away on its own, but it’s something Abrams will have to manage going forward. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Abrams back in Washington’s lineup at some point in the coming days.
  • MIN Third Baseman #23
    Of course he homered. That’s already the ninth homer of the season for Lewis; a solid number for a first half of season, but even more impressive when you remember he’s only played 15 games. The 2017 first-overall pick has been remarkable when healthy enough to play, and his 2024 slash is a scorching .385/.459/.942. That’s obviously not sustainable, but he has the talent to be an elite fantasy player as long as he can stay on the field.
  • CLE Center Fielder #17
    Brennan now has eight homers on the season. The first tied the game at 2-2 in the second inning off Luis Castillo, and he extended Cleveland’s lead to 6-3 with his blast off Trent Thornton. The 26-year-old’s platoon role makes it hard to justify him as a fantasy option, but he’s a sneaky-good daily play when he is on the field against righties.
