  • BAL Shortstop #2
    Gunnar Henderson went 3-for-5 with his 21st home run of the season on Monday, leading the Orioles to a 5-2 victory over the Rays.
    Henderson led off the contest with a gargantuan 430-foot moonshot to straightaway center field -- his seventh leadoff homer of the season -- to give the Orioles an early advantage and put him just three round-trippers behind Yankees superstar Aaron Judge, who leads the majors with 24 big flies. He also added a pair of additional hits, including a double, to cap off a stellar three-hit performance. It was his fifth three-hit effort of the year and 20th multi-hit game. The 22-year-old fantasy stalwart has been on an absolute tear since the start of June, batting .350 (14-for-40) with three homers and one steal over 10 games during that span.
  • NYM Starting Pitcher #59
    Sean Manaea allowed three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Rangers. He struck out six and walked three in a loss.
    Manaea had a no-hitter going in this one through five innings and retired 14 straight after a shaky first inning. Yet, his inability to get through a lineup for the third time did him and the Mets in. Hopefully you don’t play in a quality start league if you roster Manaea because this is now 11 of 14 starts where he failed to complete six innings.
  • HOU Center Fielder #6
    Jake Meyers went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored in the Astros 4-1 win over the White Sox on Wednesday.
    Meyers doubled in the sixth and came around to score on a base hit by César Salazar. He then led off the eighth with another double before moving to third on a sacrifice bunt and scoring on a sacrifice fly by Chas McCormick. The 25-year-old outfielder is slashing .254/.312/.418 with six homers, 25 RBI, and six steals across 206 plate appearances.
  • CWS Left Fielder #23
    Andrew Benintendi went 1-for-3 with a solo homer on Wednesday against the Astros.
    Benintendi provided all the offense against the Astros on Wednesday, taking Hunter Brown deep for a solo homer in the fourth for Chicago’s only run of the game. The 29-year-old outfielder is up to five homers, surpassing his 2023 total, while slashing .203/.243/.307 with 19 RBI and two steals across 214 plate appearances.
  • HOU Relief Pitcher #71
    Josh Hader tossed a scoreless ninth inning with one strikeout to record the save against the White Sox on Wednesday.
    Hader was summoned to close out the game with a three-run lead in the ninth against the White Sox. He worked around a base hit, striking out one batter to end the game with his tenth save of the season.
  • HOU Starting Pitcher #58
    Hunter Brown held the White Sox to one run with six strikeouts over six innings to earn the win on Wednesday.
    Brown has been fantastic over his last several starts. The only run he allowed Wednesday came on a solo homer by Andrew Benintendi in the fourth inning. It was the only run he’s allowed over his last three outings. Brown scattered six other hits while striking out six batters to zero walks. The 25-year-old right-hander will take a 4.72 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and an 82/29 K/BB ratio across 74 1/3 innings into a start against the Rockies in Houston on Tuesday.
  • CWS Starting Pitcher #45
    Garrett Crochet allowed three runs with eight strikeouts across six innings in a loss to the Astros on Wednesday.
    Crochet came into this one on a roll, not allowing more than two runs over each of his last nine starts. The Astros got to him for three on Wednesday, starting with three hits and a groundout to bring a run across in the third inning. A walk and two hits brought another run in to score in the fourth. After a scoreless fifth, Crochet allowed one more run in on a double and a base hit in the sixth. He still generated 19 whiffs to strike out eight batters. The 24-year-old left-hander will take a 3.25 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and a 124/20 K/BB ratio across 88 2/3 innings into a start against the Dodgers in Chicago on Monday.
  • LAD Starting Pitcher #22
    Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) went three innings in his first minor league rehab start at High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday night.
    The 36-year-old southpaw threw 36 pitches on the night — 26 of them for strikes — while hitting 90 mph on his fastball. Kershaw surrendered one run on two hits and a walk while punching out five in the ballgame. He’ll continue to work every fifth day or so in the minor leagues to build up his stamina with a goal of rejoining the Dodgers’ rotation at some point around the All-Star break.
  • BOS Starting Pitcher #66
    Brayan Bello punched out six Red Sox across six innings on Wednesday in a 7-3 win over the Blue Jays. He walked two and allowed two earned runs on his way to securing the victory.
    Bello showed a great approach in this one: leaning on his sinker and slider against right-handed batters while mixing those two with a heavy dose of changeups against lefties. He kept the ball on the edges and his velocity was up a tick across the board. The Blue Jays have made plenty of pitchers look great this season, but seeing Bello command his nasty arsenal is a welcome sight.
  • TOR Starting Pitcher #34
    Kevin Gausman allowed five runs - four earned - in 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Red Sox. He struck out four and walked three en route to a loss.
    Gausman never looked comfortable in this one. He allowed his first run in the midst of a two-error inning and then labored until being pulled in the sixth inning. He threw far too many fastballs in the heart of the zone and couldn’t get the Red Sox to bite at his splitters. His 4.24 ERA and 79 strikeouts in 80 2/3 innings so far this season have been disappointing.
  • BOS Center Fielder #16
    Jarren Duran went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, and two stolen bases against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
    Duran’s long ball gave the Red Sox a lead and they wouldn’t let go as he continued his do-it-all season in this one. He’s pacing for about 15 homers, 40 steals, 100 runs scored, and 70 RBI in what would be a phenomenal year for the young outfielder.
