  • LAD Designated Hitter #17
    Shohei Ohtani went 1-for-4 with a solo homer against the Rangers on Wednesday.
    Ohtani put the Dodgers on the board with a solo homer off Jon Gray in the first inning. It was one of only two runs the Dodgers would score on Texas in the game. The 29-year-old superstar is slashing .311/.383/.587 with 17 homers, 51 runs scored, 44 RBI, and 15 steals across 300 plate appearances.
  • TOR Relief Pitcher #93
    Blue Jays’ manager John Schneider told reporters on Saturday that Yimi Garcia (neck) is on his way to join the team in Arizona.
    It sounds like the 33-year-old right-hander could be activated from the injured list prior to Sunday’s first half finale. Prior to landing on the injured list with a nerve issue in mid-June, Garcia had registered a 2.57 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and a 37/7 K/BB ratio over 28 innings,
  • WAS Third Baseman
    Nationals acquired INF Cayden Wallace and a Competitive Balance A pick from the Royals for RHP Hunter Harvey.
    Wallace, 22, was the Royals’ second-round selection from the 2022 draft class. He has spent most of his 2024 season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas where he has slashed .282/.350/.427 with three homers, 16 RBI, two stolen bases (in five attempts) and a 26/9 K/BB ratio across 140 plate appearances. Expect him to begin his Nationals’ career at Double-A Harrisburg.
  • KC Relief Pitcher #63
    Royals designated RHP Nick Anderson for assignment.
    The Royals made a strong move to bolster their bullpen on Saturday by acquiring Hunter Harvey from the Nationals, but to free up a spot on their roster Anderson was designated for assignment. The 34-year-old hurler holds a 4.15 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and a 27/15 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 innings on the season. There’s a chance that another team in need of bullpen depth could take a flier on him on waivers.
  • KC Relief Pitcher #73
    Royals acquired RHP Hunter Harvey from the Nationals for INF Cayden Wallace and a Competitive Balance A pick.
    The 29-year-old right-hander has functioned as the primary setup man in front of Kyle Finnegan this season, compiling a 4.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and a 50/12 K/BB ratio across 45 innings in 43 appearances with the Nationals. Presumably, he’ll keep the same role with his new club, setting up for incumbent closer James McArthur. Nick Anderson was designated for assignment by the Royals in a corresponding move.
  • MIL First Baseman #12
    Rhys Hoskins went 1-for-4 with a run scored, a double and two RBI against the Nationals.
    Hoskins hit a two-run double off Mitchell Parker in the first inning. He came around to score on a double by Andrew Monasterio later in the inning. Hoskins is hitting .215 with a .722 OPS and 46 RBI on the season.
  • MIL Relief Pitcher #29
    Trevor Megill allowed two runs and blew the save against the Nationals on Saturday.
    Megill entered in the eighth inning with two outs and two men on and struck out Jesse Winker. With a one-run lead in the ninth inning, Megill gave up a single to Luis Garcia Jr. and a home run to CJ Abrams. It was just his second blown save in 20 chances this year. Megill has a 2.05 ERA on the season.
  • WAS Shortstop #5
    CJ Abrams went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run against the Brewers on Saturday.
    Abrams’ home run was his 15th of the season. He hit a two-run shot in the ninth inning to put the Nationals ahead 6-5. Abrams is hitting .269 with an .830 OPS and 48 RBI on the season.
  • WAS Relief Pitcher #67
    Kyle Finnegan tossed a scoreless inning and picked up the save against the Brewers on Saturday.
    Finnegan’s save was his 25th of the season. He’s converted his last two save opportunities since blowing a save against the Cardinals on July 5th. Finnegan could be on the move before the trade deadline, but for now he’s one of the best closers in fantasy baseball.
  • LAD Starting Pitcher #85
    Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that Dodgers’ right-hander Dustin May will miss the remainder of the 2024 season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn esophagus.
    May had been working his way back from last July’s surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow. He was closing in on starting a minor league rehab assignment, but the surgery to repair his torn esophagus will now sideline him from all activity for the next two months. The 26-year-old hurler should be fully recovered and ready to go for the start of spring training next season.
  • WAS Starting Pitcher #70
    Mitchell Parker allowed five runs in 2/3 innings and took the loss in the Nationals’ 6-5 victory over the Brewers on Saturday.
    Parker gave up three hits, walked two and struck out two. It was a disaster of a start for Parker and the second time he’s allowed five runs in his last three starts. He had two outs in the first inning, but gave up a two-run double to RHys Hoskins and an RBI double to Andruw Monasterio before he was removed. Two more runs scored on a single by Eric Haase and the runs were charged to Parker. His ERA increased to 3.90 on the season.
