  • CIN Starting Pitcher #40
    Reds placed LHP Nick Lodolo on the 15-day injured list with a strained left groin.
    Lodolo still hasn’t had any arm problems as a major leaguer, but the rest of his body keeps betraying him. The 26-year-old was looking like a potential All-Star with his 3.34 ERA and 43/9 K/BB ratio in six starts since returning from his last round of problems with his left leg. Nick Martinez could return to the rotation in his place.
  • ATL Catcher #16
    Travis d’Arnaud was pulled from Friday night’s battle against the Padres due to a head contusion.
    The 35-year-old backstop was dizzy after taking a foul ball off of his mask, prompting his removal from the game. The good news, is that he passed the initial concussion tests without issue, but he will be evaluated again on Saturday before the team makes a determination on his status. For now, he should be considered day-to-day.
  • NYY Starting Pitcher #65
    Nestor Cortes worked seven innings without allowing an earned run in the Yankees 4-2 win over the White Sox on Friday. He struck out six, walked one, allowed five hits, and earned the win.
    This was the fourth time this season that Cortes has completed at least seven innings. He’s been a reliable, steadying force in the Yankees’ rotation and looks to have bounced back fully after a poor 2023.
  • NYY Relief Pitcher #35
    Clay Holmes struck out two White Sox to earn the save on Friday. He also walked one.
    Holmes has arguably been the best relief pitcher in baseball this season not named Mason Miller. Yet to allow an earned run, he suppresses hard contact at an impressive clip and is running a career best 29 K%.
  • CWS Starting Pitcher #52
    Mike Clevinger allowed three earned runs in 4 ⅔ innings in a loss to the Yankees on Friday. He also walked two and struck out five.
    Clevinger ran into the buzzsaw that is Aaron Judge who took him deep in the first and then fell victim to the middle of the Yankees lineup in a two-run fourth inning. Such is life for the modern version of Clevinger who will take a 5.56 ERA into his next start against the Blue Jays.
  • NYY Right Fielder #99
    Aaron Judge went 1-for-1 with a solo home run and three walks in a win over the White Sox on Friday.
    Judge has been retired just once in three games as his scalding hot streak continues. He has six home runs in his last 46 at-bats and his .981 OPS is suddenly sixth among all qualified hitters.
  • CWS Center Fielder #28
    Tommy Pham went 3-for-5 on Friday with a double and a run scored.
    Pham has been scalding hot since being activated by the White Sox with a .338 average and .866 OPS. All he’s ever done is hit and will have every opportunity to do so as he leads off and plays every day for this dismal White Sox team.
  • FA Starting Pitcher #23
    Zack Greinke faced hitters in a live batting practice session at the Diamondbacks’ spring training facility on Friday.
    The 40-year-old hurler still has hopes of continuing his pitching career and the Diamondbacks are willing to let him use their facility to see where things go as he ramps up. He only began throwing seriously around two weeks ago, so it’s going to take him a while to get back into game shape. It’s very early in the process, but perhaps we haven’t seen the last of Greinke on a big league mound just yet.
  • MIA Starting Pitcher #44
    Jesús Luzardo completed six innings in the Marlins 8-0 win over the Mets on Friday. He struck out seven, walked none, and allowed seven hits.
    Luzardo has been fantastic since returning from the IL, striking out 15 in 11 ⅔ innings across two starts putting a rough start to the season behind him. However, be advised his fastball averaged just 94.7 MPH Friday. That was his lowest mark in a single start this season and after he’s already spent time on the shelf with elbow tightness.
  • MIA Catcher #4
    Nick Fortes went 3-for-3 with a three-run homer and three runs scored against the Mets on Friday.
    The home run was just Fortes’ second in what’s been a disastrous start to the season. He’s had some intriguing batted ball metrics in the past, but this was just his second barrel of the season. He’s hard to trust even in two-catcher formats.
  • NYM Starting Pitcher #45
    Christian Scott allowed four earned runs across four innings on Friday in a loss against the Marlins. He struck out three, walked one, and allowed seven hits.
    The Marlins jumped all over Scott for a four-run second inning with the big blow being a three-run home run from Nick Fortes. Scott is a strike-thrower which is one of his greatest qualities, but also caused his undoing in this one. He’s lined up to face the Giants next Friday as the Mets move into a six-man rotation.
