  • NYY Third Baseman #38
    Davis was place on the injured list with an illness, but now he’s back and the Yankees will try to get him some at-bats against left-handed pitching. It’s unlikely that he’ll be part of a strict platoon with Ben Rice at first base given the rookie’s early success and Davis’ struggles this year. Davis is hitting .221 with four home runs and six RBI in 136 at-bats this year.
  • CHC Center Fielder #4
    Canario came up as an extra outfielder when Cody Bellinger was placed on the injured list. Now Canario is headed back to the minors with the Cubs activating Mike Tauchman from the injured list. Canario hit .280 with one home run and two RBI in 25 at-bats with the Cubs.
  • CHC Left Fielder #40
    Tauchman returns after missing about a month with a groin strain. Alexander Canario was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. Tauchman’s absence opened up regular playing time in centerfield for Pete Crow-Armstrong. Now the Cubs are back to having four spots for Tauchman, Crow-Armstrong, Christopher Morel, Seiya Suzuki, and Ian Happ. Tauchman is hitting .259 with five home runs, 19 RBI and five steals in 220 at-bats this year.
  • CHC Starting Pitcher #36
    Wicks was diagnosed with a Grade 2 right oblique strain, which foreshadowed a lengthy absence. The Cubs are moving him to the 60-day injured list now to make room on the 40-man roster for Jesus Tinoco. Kyle Hendricks will continue to occupy Wicks’ spot in the Cubs’ rotation.
  • CHC Relief Pitcher #59
    Tinoco was recently acquired from the Royals and will now join the Cubs’ bullpen for the second half. Jordan Wicks was transferred to the 60-day injured list to make room on the 40-man roster. Tinoco had an 8.10 ERA in nine appearances for the Rangers earlier this year, but had a 3.86 ERA in 21 appearances at Triple-A.
  • KC Relief Pitcher #94
    Lamet opted out of his minor league deal with the Dodgers in early June. He allowed one run in 4 1/3 innings with the Dodgers and was designated for assignment in April. Lamet had a 4.82 ERA in 37 1/3 innings with Triple-A. Bullpen depth is still a priority for the Royals even after trading for Hunter Harvey and there’s no risk in stashing Lamet on a minor league deal.
  • ATL Center Fielder #18
    Laureano hasn’t played a game since June 26th, but was placed on the injured list retroactive to July 9th with a left oblique strain. Atlanta could look to add an outfielder before the trade deadline, which would cut into Laureano’s playing time. He’s hitting .181 with two home runs and eight RBI in 105 at-bats this year.
  • TEX Third Baseman #6
    Jung remains without an official target date to return, but he’s no longer dealing with any pain in his surgically-repaired wrist and figures to be ready for a minor league rehab assignment coming out of the All-Star break. Barring any further setbacks, he could return at some point in August.
  • TEX Center Fielder #32
    It’s typically the final hurdle to clear before a position player heads out for a minor league rehab assignment, so it wouldn’t be shocking to see Carter get into some rehab contests in the coming days. The 21-year-old former top prospect struggled out of the gate this season before hitting the injured list last month with a stress reaction in his back. He should be ready to return at some point in early August.
  • SF Starting Pitcher #45
    Harrison has allowed five runs on nine hits with a 5/5 K/BB ratio across 8 2/3 innings (two starts) since returning from a nearly one-month stint on the injured list and will take the ball on Friday night at Coors Field to open the second half. Given the extremely challenging matchup, fantasy managers should strongly consider leaving him on the bench outside of extremely deep mixed leagues and NL-only formats.
