  • SF Starting Pitcher #67
    The Giants said Keaton Winn suffered from forearm tightness while giving up five runs in four innings Tuesday in a loss to the Dodgers.
    That’s a bummer. Winn has a 6.17 ERA after this, but he’s generally looked better than that suggests. The Giants just sent down Mason Black with Blake Snell set to return to the rotation, but they might need to go back to him now.
  • SF Center Fielder #17
    Heliot Ramos is in left field and batting seventh for Saturday’s game against the Mets.
    Ramos finds himself buried at towards the tail-end of San Francisco’s lineup despite batting .281 (16-for-57) with two homers, nine RBI and one steal in 15 games since returning to the majors back on May 8. It wouldn’t be shocking to see the 24-year-old former prospect stick in the majors for good following the season-ending injury to rookie Jung Hoo Lee (shoulder). It’s Luis Matos continuing to get opportunities at the top of the lineup, which makes him the safer option for fantasy managers speculating on a waiver wire pickup.
  • CWS Third Baseman #44
    White Sox activated INF Bryan Ramos from the 10-day injured list.
    Ramos is back in Chicago’s lineup at third base following a minumum stay on the shelf recovering from a mild quad strain. The 22-year-old rookie has gotten off to a nice start, batting .281 (9-for-32) with a pair of RBI in 34 plate appearances over 10 contests.
  • CWS Right Fielder #31
    White Sox optioned OF Zach DeLoach to Triple-A Charlotte.
    DeLoach was summoned earlier this week to make his big-league debut and wound up going 0-for-5 in a trio of contests. The 25-year-old figures to be back at some point this summer for an extended opportunity with the rebuilding White Sox.
  • NYM Third Baseman #27
    Mark Vientos is not in the lineup for Saturday’s contest against the Giants.
    Brett Baty gets his first nod at the hot corner in three contests to face Giants righty Jordan Hicks with Vientos on the bench to open Saturday afternoon’s showdown. The 24-year-old has homered twice in his last three games and is quickly emerging as the preferred starting option at third base, at least for the moment, in New York.
  • OAK Starting Pitcher
    The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports the Athletics are calling up left-hander Jack O’Loughlin.
    The 24-year-old lefty receives his first call-up the majors after posting a serviceable 5.12 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 44/16 K/BB ratio across 38 2/3 innings (10 appearances, eight starts) for Triple-A Las Vegas.
  • 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.
