  • HOU Third Baseman #2
    Alex Bregman went 2-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday’s win over the Athletics.
    Bregman swatted his fourth homer of the season in the second inning to give the Astros an early 1-0 lead. Bregman has now homered in back-to-back nights and has hit safely in his last six games. He’s hitting .417 over that span and may finally be starting to turn the corner after getting off to a slow start to the season.
  • DET First Baseman #20
    Spencer Torkelson is not in the lineup for Saturday’s contest against the Blue Jays.
    It’s Torkelson’s first off day since April 28. The 24-year-old former top prospect has shown the occasional glimpses of big-time power potential, but he’s batting just .207/.279/.330 with three homers and 17 RBI in 209 plate appearances over 49 contests. He’s gone 0-for-16 at the dish over his last five games and will get some time off to reset mentally. It’ll be Mark Canha drawing a rare start at the hot corner in his absence.
  • TEX Starting Pitcher #17
    Jeff Wilson of Rangers Today reports Nathan Eovaldi (groin) is unlikely to return this weekend.
    Eovaldi is progressing towards a return from the injured list, but it doesn’t sound like he’ll return this weekend, as the Rangers are most likely going to roll with a bullpen game for Sunday’s series finale against the Twins. There should be some additional clarity on his return timetable at some point this weekend.
  • ATL Relief Pitcher #46
    Braves recalled RHP Jimmy Herget from Triple-A Gwinnett.
    Herget provides Atlanta with some extra bullpen depth heading into Saturday’s contest against the Pirates after Darius Vines was shipped back to the minors. The 30-year-old righty was acquired from the Angels earlier this month after being designated for assignment and hasn’t pitched in the majors this season. However, he’s made 92 appearances in the big leagues over the last three years.
  • PIT Catcher #6
    Yasmani Grandal went 1-for-5 with a pair of RBI on Friday in his return to the Pirates’ lineup.
    Grandal wound up missing a pair of contests following an early exit from Tuesday’s showdown against the Giants with left groin discomfort. The 35-year-old veteran will continue splitting the catching duties with Joey Bart for now.
  • WAS Starting Pitcher #70
    Mitchell Parker’s next scheduled start has been pushed back to Monday against the Braves.
    It’s a tough break for fantasy managers planning on a two-start week from Parker as he’ll go from facing the Mariners on Sunday afternoon to a much tougher challenge on Monday against the Braves in Atlanta. It’ll be Patrick Corbin bumping up to take the ball on Sunday to give the young lefty an extra day of rest between starts.
  • TEX Left Fielder #36
    Wyatt Langford (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a walk on Friday in a minor league rehab contest for Triple-A Round Rock.
    It won’t show up in the surface stats, but Langford recorded impressive exit velocities of 109.6, 101.3 and 96 mph on three batted ball events during his rehab assignment debut on Friday night at Triple-A Round Rock. The 22-year-old top prospect will likely require a handful of additional contests to get back up to speed before returning to the Rangers’ lineup. He’s been on the shelf since early May recovering from a right hamstring strain.
  • CHC Starting Pitcher #36
    Jordan Wicks (forearm) struck out three over a pair of scoreless innings on Friday in a minor league rehab start for Triple-A Iowa.
    Wicks scattered a pair of hits and needed just 33 pitches (22 strikes) to navigate a pair of frames. The 24-year-old southpaw will require a handful of additional outings to continue building up his pitch count and stamina, but he figures to rejoin Chicago’s starting rotation mix at some point in early-to-mid June.
  • CHC Left Fielder #52
    Cubs OF prospect Pete Crow-Armstrong went 4-for-5 with a solo homer and four RBI on Friday for Triple-A Iowa.
    Crow-Armstrong was jettisoned to the minors last week with Cody Bellinger and Seiya Suzuki back from injured-list stints and certainly made some noise in this one with his fifth long ball of the year along with three doubles. The 22-year-old top prospect’s elite-caliber defense guarantees he’s going to be around for a long time and he offers enough of a power/speed combination for fantasy managers to dream on. It’ll be interesting to see how he performs when he gets another extended look in Chicago.
  • ATL Catcher #12
    Sean Murphy (oblique) went 2-for-5 with an RBI on Friday in a minor league rehab game for Triple-A Gwinnett.
    Murphy homered in back-to-back contests to kick-off his rehab assignment prior to Friday’s game. He’s batting .357 (5-for-14) and appears close to returning to Atlanta’s lineup, possibly at some point this weekend.
  • FA Starting Pitcher #78
    Dodgers released LHP Stephen Gonsalves.
    Gonsalves was a notable pitching prospect with the Twins back a few years ago, but hasn’t appeared in the majors since the 2021 season when he made three relief appearances for the Red Sox. The 29-year-old southpaw signed a minor league pact with Los Angeles back in mid-January and never wound up making it to Dodger Stadium.
