  • MIL First Baseman #12
    Rhys Hoskins said a hamstring injury caused him to leave Monday’s game and that he’ll have an MRI on Tuesday morning.
    Not good. One imagines the Brewers will bring Tyler Black back to the majors now. He was short-changed in his first opportunity, and he might well be a fine replacement for Hoskins.
  • COL Shortstop #14
    Ezequiel Tovar went 4-for-6 and delivered a game-winning hit in the bottom of the 11th as the Rockies upset the Phillies 3-2 on Friday.
    Jacob Stallings previously tied this one up by homering in the bottom of the ninth. Neither team scored in the 10th, and the Phillies also came up empty in the 11th before the Rockies won it. Tovar had a double and a second RBI in the game. His first career four-hit game pushed his average up to .285 for the season.
  • COL Starting Pitcher #50
    Ty Blach delivered a quality start against the Phillies on Friday, allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision.
    The runs came on homers from Nick Castellanos and Edmundo Sora in the fifth, but Blach remained in and pitched two more innings afterwards. He was actually at just 78 pitches when came out. Blach has a solid 4.55 ERA in four starts and three relief appearances for the Rockies, even though he’s fanned just 12 batters in 27 2/3 innings.
  • PHI Starting Pitcher #61
    Cristopher Sánchez held the Rockies to one run in 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Friday.
    Sánchez’s velocity has been great in his last two starts, though it didn’t lead to strikeouts tonight (two) at Coors Field like it did last time (eight) against the Nationals. Sánchez lowered his ERA to 3.15, but he remained stuck on two wins.
  • PHI Relief Pitcher #46
    José Alvarado took a blown save after giving up a game-tying homer to Jacob Stallings in the ninth inning Friday against the Rockies.
    Alvarado has a couple of losses, but this is his first blown save to go along with nine saves and four holds. He’s still the clear favorite for saves in Philadelphia. Incredibly, he’s walked just two batters in his last 18 appearances, spanning 16 2/3 innings.
  • NYY Third Baseman #19
    Jon Berti suffered a calf injury during Friday’s game and likely will go on the injured list.
    The Yankees could bring DJ LeMahieu back from his rehab early with Berti out, but that’s not the current play. Perhaps Oswald Peraza will get the call. Oswaldo Cabrera will play third base until LeMahieu is activated early next week.
  • BAL Shortstop #2
    Gunnar Henderson collected his 17th homer and his fifth double Friday as the Orioles defeated the White Sox 6-4.
    Henderson is tied with Kyle Tucker for the major league lead in homers, one ahead of Aaron Judge. He’s also tied for third with four triples. On the other hand, he’s tied for 185th place in doubles with Luis Guillorme, Eguy Rosario and Danny Mendick, among many others.
  • BAL Starting Pitcher #39
    Corbin Burnes allowed three runs over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the White Sox.
    He struck out six and walked two. This season has not seen Burnes at his absolute best, but neither has he faltered at any point; he still hasn’t allowed more than three runs or pitched fewer than five innings in any of his 11 starts. His next turn will come against the Red Sox. It’s the only team he’s completed seven innings against this year, doing so in a 7-1 victory on Apr. 9.
  • BAL Relief Pitcher #46
    Craig KImbrel picked up his 11th save with a perfect ninth against the White Sox on Friday.
    Sort of perfect anyway, given that it took Colton Cowser robbing Tommy Pham of a homer to end the game. Still, even if that ball had managed to get over Cowser’s glove in center, Kimbrel did have another run to play with. It goes as Kimbrel’s sixth straight hitless and walkless appearance.
  • CWS Starting Pitcher #77
    Chris Flexen yielded four runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a no-decision versus the Orioles.
    The White Sox are holding out hope that Flexen might bring back a minor prospect at the trade deadline, but he’s not doing them much good in the meantime. This leaves him with a 5.69 ERA in nine starts and two relief appearances.
  • CWS First Baseman #25
    Andrew Vaughn had a solo homer, an RBI double and a walk Friday versus the Orioles.
    Vaughn had dipped again recently, entering tonight in a 1-for-20 slump. He definitely seems to be swinging better now than he was a month ago, but he’s probably not going to get to the point at which he overcomes being part of such a bad offense in order to contribute in mixed leagues.
