  • CLE First Baseman #22
    Josh Naylor went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer on Tuesday in the Guardians’ win over the Rangers.
    Naylor capped off a six-run second inning for the Guardians when he smacked a three-run homer off Rangers rookie Jack Leiter to give the Guardians a commanding 6-1 lead. Naylor has now homered four times this month and has hit 12 on the season while also driving in 33 runs. He’s pacing toward a career year if he can continue his strong start. He’s cooled off a bit, slashing .239/.352/.587 this month, but continues to be an imposing threat in the middle of the order.
  • LAA Third Baseman #22
    Angels removed Miguel Sanó (burned knee) from his rehab assignment.
    The veteran burned his left knee last weekend after taking the protection off his heating pad to make it hotter. The burn has not healed, so the team has brought him back to Anaheim, and there is no timetable for his return. Yes, all of that is true.
  • FA Second Baseman #18
    Joey Wendle rejected an outright assignment from the Braves and elected free agency.
    Wendle was waived by the Braves on Monday to make room for Sean Murphy on the active roster, but he has no intention of playing in the minor leagues. The veteran, who is hitting .222 with zero home runs in 36 at-bats this season, will hope to latch on with another team.
  • CWS Third Baseman #44
    White Sox optioned 3B Bryan Ramos to Triple-A Charlotte.
    Ramos was activated off the 10-day IL on Saturday but will now head back to the minors. The 22-year-old was hitting just .196/.208/.239 in 15 games in the big leagues. While it wasn’t a successful start, he figures to get another chance later in the season since the White Sox are not in contention and could get value out of seeing what their younger players are capable of.
  • NYM First Baseman #20
    Pete Alonso (hand) has been diagnosed with a bone bruise after CT scans revealed no break.
    Hey, that’s one piece of good news for the Mets. Alonso may miss a couple of games as he deals with soreness and some potential inflammation, but it appears he avoided any major injury here and should be back in the lineup soon. Even though he’s not producing at the level you expected when you drafted him, he’s too talented to leave out of your fantasy lineup once he returns.
  • CHC Left Fielder #27
    Seiya Suzuki is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Brewers.
    Pete Crow-Armstrong, who was just promoted from Triple-A, will start in center field with Cody Bellinger moving to designated hitter and Mike Tauchman to right field. It could simply be a routine day off for Suzuki. Still, it’s noteworthy that the Cubs called up Crow-Armstrong today while demoting an infielder, thereby adding another outfielder to an already full position group. Suzuki has struggled in May, slashing .209/.260/.269 in 16 games while dealing with an injury. However, he has struggled early in the season in years past and is striking out just 19 percent of the time in May, so he is continuing to make contact. It should only be a matter of time before he gets it going again.
  • TB Right Fielder #15
    Josh Lowe (oblique) will play for Triple-A Durham this weekend as he nears a return.
    The plan is for Lowe to play all weekend with Durham and, if all feels good, he could return to the Tampa Bay lineup on Tuesday against the Marlins. Lowe has now had three setbacks this season with his oblique, but the last imaging he had showed no major issues and both he and the Rays have expressed optimism that he will return next week.
  • KC Starting Pitcher #43
    Royals optioned RHP Carlos Hernández to Triple-A Omaha.
    With Brady Singer scratched from his Thursday start due to illness, the Royals needed a starter on short notice, so they called up Daniel Lynch IV from Triple-A and optioned Hernández to make room. The 27-year-old made four appearances for the Royals after returning from injury, allowing one run on two hits in 2 2/3 innings while striking out one and walking three. He’ll be back in the Royals’ bullpen in the near future.
  • KC Starting Pitcher #41
    Royals recalled LHP Daniel Lynch IV from Triple-A Omaha.
    With Brady Singer unavailable due to an illness, Lynch will make a spot start on Thursday against the Twins. The 27-year-old has made nine starts in Triple-A, posting a 4.76 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. He’s not a recommended option in fantasy leagues.
  • KC Starting Pitcher #51
    Royals scratched Brady Singer from Thursday’s start due to illness.
    It doesn’t seem like anything concerning for Singer long term, but he will miss today’s start against the Twins and may not pitch again until his next turn in the rotation. Daniel Lynch IV was called up from Triple-A Omaha to start in Singer’s place.
  • TB Left Fielder #56
    Randy Arozarena will hit second for Tampa Bay against the Athletics on Thursday.
    With a left-hander on the mound, the Rays will deploy their right-hand heavy lineup, which means Richie Palacios, Brandon Lowe, and Jonathan Aranda will all head to the bench. That allows Yandy Diaz to lead off and Arozarena to move up to second in the order. The 29-year-old has been struggling for the entirety of the 2024 season, but perhaps hitting in front of the Rays’ middle-of-the-order bats will give him more good pitches to hit and lead to a solid performance.
