  • CIN Relief Pitcher #50
    Reds recalled LHP Sam Moll from Triple-A Louisville.
    Moll is back where he belongs. He had a 0.00 ERA in five innings before a roster crunch got him sent down to Triple-A.
  • DET Left Fielder #8
    Matt Vierling homered for the fourth time in his last three games on Wednesday, but it wasn’t enough to lead the Tigers past the Pirates in the second game of Wednesday’s doubleheader.
    After belting a pair of home runs — including a walk-off — on Sunday, and crushing a three-run shot in the first game on Wednesday, Vierling tagged Paul Skenes for a 373-foot solo shot in the sixth inning of the nightcap. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and is now slashing an impressive .289/.320/.503 to go along with seven homers and 28 RBI on the season.
  • DET Starting Pitcher
    Keider Montero was hit hard in his big league debut on Wednesday, giving up four runs on five hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Pirates.
    The 23-year-old right-hander racked up five strikeouts on the afternoon while issuing a pair of free passes. Most of the damage done against him came via the long ball, as Andrew McCutchen crushed a three-run homer in the third inning and Nick Gonzales added a solo shot in the fourth. Montero got 10 swings and misses on 87 pitches on the day — five of those on his slider — while posting a CSW of 26 percent. He’ll return to Triple-A Toledo where he’ll continue to function as excess pitching depth for the Tigers.
  • PHI Left Fielder #12
    Kyle Schwarber walloped a leadoff homer and also stole a base on Wednesday, propelling the Phillies to a 6-1 victory over the Giants.
    Schwarber delivered a tone-setting blast to left-center field right out of the gate against Giants starter Kyle Harrison before reaching on a fielder’s choice and stealing second base a couple frames later. The 31-year-old slugger also added an RBI single in the eighth inning as well to put the cherry on top of a multi-hit performance at Oracle Park, which is one of the toughest ballparks in the league for left-handed batters.
  • SF Second Baseman #41
    Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with a double on Wednesday in the Giants’ loss to the Phillies.
    Flores ripped a ground-rule double to left-center field off Phillies reliever Spencer Turnbull in the ninth inning and came around to cross the plate later in the frame on a Heliot Ramos run-scoring single. The 32-year-old veteran figures to pick up the majority of the playing time at the cold corner over the next few weeks with on-base machine LaMonte Wade Jr. on the shelf with a hamstring strain, but his appeal is strictly limited to NL-only formats at the moment.
  • PHI Right Fielder #8
    Nick Castellanos went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer on Wednesday in the Phillies’ win over the Giants.
    Castellanos connected on a fifth-inning offering from Giants lefty Kyle Harrison, sending his seventh round-tripper of the season out to left-center field at spacious Oracle Park. The 32-year-old veteran outfielder got off to a slow start this season at the dish, but has heated up of late with three homers over his last seven contests.
  • PHI Starting Pitcher #61
    Cristopher Sánchez recorded seven strikeouts over six shutout innings on Wednesday in a win over the Giants.
    Sánchez had little trouble carving up a San Francisco lineup that has been one of the better in baseball this season against left-handed pitching, scattering four hits and one walk, needing just 96 pitches (68 strikes) to complete six frames. The 27-year-old lefty notched at least seven punchouts for the fifth time in 11 starts this season, inducing 11 swinging strikes and finishing with a solid 34 percent CSW. He’ll carry a strong 2.83 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 56/20 K/BB ratio across 60 1/3 innings (11 starts) into a home outing on Tuesday against the Brewers.
  • SF Starting Pitcher #45
    Kyle Harrison surrendered four runs over five innings on Wednesday in a loss to the Phillies.
    Harrison was knocked around for a staggering 12 hits, including homers by Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos, so it’s pretty remarkable that he managed to limit the damage to just four runs over five frames of work. He racked up five strikeouts and only handed out one free pass. The 22-year-old southpaw will bring a respectable 4.15 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 60/22 K/BB ratio across 65 innings (12 starts) into a road tilt on Tuesday againstt the division-rival Diamondbacks.
  • BOS Third Baseman #47
    Red Sox recalled INF Enmanuel Valdez from Triple-A Worcester.
    The 25-year-old infielder will replace the injured Tyler O’Neill (knee) on the team’s active roster. Valdez has already appeared in 28 games for the Red Sox this season, slashing an underwhelming .156/.186/.267 with two homers, 11 RBI and a 30/4 K/BB ratio. He can continue to be ignored for fantasy purposes.
  • BOS Right Fielder #17
    Red Sox placed OF Tyler O’Neill on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to May 26, with right knee inflammation.
    The Red Sox were hopeful that the 28-year-old slugger wouldn’t require a stint on the injured list, but they still believe that it’ll be a short stay there and he’ll be ready to return as soon as he’s eligible. Perhaps a few days off to clear his head will help his recent struggles at the dish as well. Enmanuel Valdez was recalled from Triple-A Worcester in a corresponding move on Wednesday.
  • STL Right Fielder #21
    Cardinals’ manager Oli Marmol told reporters after Wednesday’s game that Lars Nootbaar will undergo further evaluation on his injured list.
    Marmol noted that Nootbaar felt something in his side on a swing, and they wanted to take a cautious approach, so they pulled him from the game and put in Dylan Carlson. Anticipate that he’ll get some imaging done to determine the severity of the injury and a trip to the injured list isn’t out of the question just yet. The Cardinals should have a better idea on his status on Thursday.
