  • 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.
  • MIA Left Fielder #54
    Myers is expected to miss 6-8 weeks after suffering a fractured left ankle last Saturday when he kicked the clubhouse door. It’ll go down as one of the more bizarre injuries of the entire season and it’s a significant loss for Miami as he likely would’ve been in line for expanded playing time following the trade deadline. He won’t be back until at least late August or early September, barring any setbacks.
  • ARI Starting Pitcher #19
    Nelson will take the ball at Wrigley Field to be followed by Zac Gallen and Brandon Pfaadt for the rest of the weekend road series. It’ll be interesting to see whether Arizona sticks with rookie Yilber Diaz for the remainder of the second half, especially with Jordan Montgomery (knee) due back at some point in the near future.
  • FA First Baseman
    Sasaki, who hit a high school-record 140 homers in high school overseas in Japan, was expected to be the first overall pick in last year’s Nippon Professional Baseball Draft, but has decided to play collegiate baseball at Stanford instead. He had been playing in the Trenton Thunder of the MLB Draft League for the last few weeks, but will now play in the wood bat summer collegiate league. The 19-year-old phenom will be eligible for the MLB Draft as early as 2026.
  • LAD Starting Pitcher #22
    It’ll be Kershaw’s third rehab outing as he continues to progress towards a mid-to-late August season debut coming off last year’s shoulder surgery. The 36-year-old veteran lefty struck out five over three shutout innings last weekend for Triple-A Oklahoma City. He figures to make an impact for fantasy managers over the final few weeks of the year, even in shallow mixed leagues. The results have been there for the future Hall of Fame southpaw, when healthy, over the last few years.
  • OAK Shortstop
    Wilson will join the Athletics for Friday’s second-half opener against the Angels after just 72 games in the minors since being selected sixth overall in last year’s MLB Draft. The 22-year-old shortstop has torn the cover off the ball this season in the upper minors with a surreal .438/.475/.687 triple-slash line with seven homers and two steals across 200 plate appearances. He doesn’t offer a ton of over-the-fence pop or stolen base potential upside, and Oakland’s lackluster supporting cast doesn’t exactly help either. Yet, his bat-to-ball skills give him a shot to make an impact for fantasy managers in the second half. He’s at least worthy of a speculative roster spot in deeper mixed leagues.
  • CIN Starting Pitcher
    MLB Pipeline’s Jim Callis adds that Burns will receive a $9.25 million signing bonus as the second-overall pick from the 2024 MLB Draft out of Wake Forest, narrowly surpasses the record-setting $9.2 million figure current All-Star Paul Skenes received last year from the Pirates as the top-overall selection. The 21-year-old right-hander projects as an impact fantasy contributor in the near future as he boasts a triple-digit fastball and arguably the best slider in the entire draft class. It’s easy to envision him blossoming into an upper-echelon fantasy starter down the road given his impressive stuff. He’ll be worth monitoring closely over the next few months as he kicks off his professional career.
