    Michael King Tue May 28 8:00am ET

    San Diego starting pitcher Michael King struck out seven across five innings of one-run ball on Monday. He allowed three hits and one free pass. King has looked dominant at times this season but has also had several blow-up starts, making him a difficult asset to trust in fantasy. He has logged five starts with only allowing at most one earned run but two starts of allowing at least six earned runs with an overall 4.03 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. However, he has shown excellent strikeout upside with a 26.3% K rate, which places him in the top 73 percentile among all qualified pitchers. The 29-year-old will look to post another strong outing on Sunday as he takes on the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.

    Willy Adames Tue May 28 7:50am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames went 2-4 at the plate with a three-run blast that powered the Brewers to victory in the opening game of the series. Adames now has eight home runs on the season with a solid .249/.322/.440, 35 RBI, and eight stolen bases. The 28-year-old is looking to put a disappointing season behind him and is already on pace to smash last year's totals. Under the hood, Adames has an above-average barrel rate, xSLG, hard-hit rate, and walk rate, which are great signs that he could be in the food a big summer. He is expected to continue to serve as the everyday shortstop in Milwaukee and consistently bat in the cleanup spot, setting him up for prime RBI opportunities batting behind Christian Yelich and William Contreras. Adames remains a solid shortstop and middle infield option in all standard leagues.

    Robert Gasser Tue May 28 7:40am ET

    Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Robert Gasser struck out a season and career-high seven batters across seven shutout innings on Monday. He allowed just three hits. The southpaw got back on track on Monday after allowing ten hits and for earned runs in his previous outing. Through his first four starts in the majors (23 innings), the 24-year-old holds a 1.96 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and near-perfect 1:13 BB:K ratio. His underlying metrics are quite strong as he currently holds a 1.3% barrel rate and 21.3% hard-hit rate, which places him in the top 98th and 99th percentile among qualified pitchers. However, he has struggled to strike batters out with a poor 14.1% K rate. Nonetheless, Gasser has only had one poor outing in the majors so far and will look to keep the momentum rolling on Saturday when he takes on the Chicago White Sox.

    Andrew Benintendi Tue May 28 7:30am ET

    Chicago White Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi went 3-4 at the plate with three singles in Monday's loss. This was a big bounce-back for the 29-year-old as he entered Monday, hitting for a .053 AVG in his past six games. Overall, on the season, Benintendi is riding a disappointing .193/.230/.271 line with three home runs and two stolen bases. Benintendi is known for being a great batting average contributor in fantasy, posting a .262 and .304 AVG the previous two seasons. Currently, his underlying metrics do not suggest a fast turnaround this season, as he sits with an 87.4 mph average exit velocity and 5.4% barrel rate. As a result, Benintendi should be left on all waiver wires, but could be worth adding in deeper leagues if he continues to find his footing.

    Adam Duvall Tue May 28 7:20am ET

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall launched a two-run blast on Monday, his second in as many days. Through 34 games this season, the 35-year-old has posted a .209/.303/.407 line with five long balls and a 10:22 BB:K ratio. Duvall has not been able to find consistent playing time this season, but that will change due to the recent season-ending injury to Ronald Acuna Jr. (knee). He is now expected to slot in as the everyday right fielder in Atlanta, with J.P. Martinez serving as his backup. While Duval does have strong hitting metrics, such as an excellent 13.8% barrel rate and .499 xSLG, he holds a 22.2% K Rate, which does hurt his value in points leagues. Due to the increase in playing time and power upside, he is worth adding in deeper leagues.

    Jose Miranda Tue May 28 7:10am ET

    Minnesota Twins third baseman Jose Miranda went 1-4 at the plate with a two-run shot to power the Twins to a victory. Miranda has now made ten consecutive starts at the hot corner and looks to have claimed the starting role. In his past ten games he has posted a strong .303/.324/.606 line with three long balls, five RBI, and a 1:4 BB:K ratio. Currently, Miranda holds a stellar 14.8% K rate, which should play well in points leagues. This is a big turnaround for the 25-year-old, as he struggled in the majors last season and finished the season with a poor .211/.263/.303 line and ended up spending half of the season in Triple-A. Miranda is worth adding in AL-only formats and deeper mixed leagues and could even be worth adding in standard formats if he continues this hot stretch.

    Jeimer Candelario Tue May 28 1:00am ET

    Cincinnati Reds corner infielder Jeimer Candelario had a successful return to the lineup in Monday's 3-1 win over the Cardinals. The 30-year-old went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk. Candelario got things going, pulling a first-inning Lance Lynn fastball over the right-field wall for his sixth HR of the season. Despite the move to a favorable home park, Candelario has struggled offensively, slashing .222/.299/.419 with 20 RBI in 187 plate appearances. He has hit for more power at home but has actually batted worse with a .202/.333/.440 slash line compared to a .241/.259/.398 slash line on the road. While it seems likely that Candelario's overall numbers will improve as he starts to hit better at home, fantasy managers will have to be patient until he can start producing more consistently.

    Lance Lynn Tue May 28 12:50am ET

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn turned in another nice start but took the loss in Monday's 3-1 game against the Reds. Lynn pitched six innings, allowing three runs (one earned) on five hits (including a solo home run) and three walks with five strikeouts. The 37-year-old veteran has had a nice bounce-back season after a poor 2023, going 2-3 with a 3.45 ERA, an 8.32 K/9 rate, a 3.61 BB/9 rate, and a 1.10 HR/9 rate in 10 starts and 51 1/3 IP. His next matchup will be a tough one at the Phillies. While Lynn has pitched better this season, fantasy managers may want to avoid starting him later in the week if they can afford to.

    Nick Lodolo Tue May 28 12:50am ET

    Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Nick Lodolo (groin) improved to 4-2 in Monday's 3-1 win over the Cardinals. Lodolo, who was activated from the 15-day injured list earlier in the day after recovering from a groin strain, pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing one run on five hits (including a solo home run) and no walks with three strikeouts over 81 pitches. This was very encouraging for the 26-year-old and fantasy managers, as Lodolo has pitched well this season with a 3.12 ERA and a 10.26 K/9 rate in seven starts and 40 1/3 IP. The former high-end fantasy prospect had a poor, injury-shortened 2023 season after a promising rookie season, so it is nice to see him back on the right track. Lodolo will look to keep things going in his next start, which is projected to be a decent matchup at the Cubs.

    Paul Goldschmidt Tue May 28 12:40am ET

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt added another long ball to his recent total in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Reds. Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout. He provided his team's entire offense, sending a first-inning Nick Lodolo fastball into the left-field seats. The 36-year-old has been cold at the plate overall this season but now has three HR in his last two games and is hitting .276 with six extra-base hits in his last seven games. Age is a concern for Goldschmidt, but hopefully, he can extend his hot streak and start performing closer to the high-end fantasy option he has been throughout his career.

    George Springer Tue May 28 12:30am ET

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer had a nice game at the plate in Monday's 5-1 win over the White Sox. The 34-year-old went 2-for-3 with a single, a two-run home run, and a walk. Springer crushed a second-inning Nick Nastrini fastball into the left-center seats for his fourth HR of the season. Springer has seven stolen bases but has been dreadful offensively otherwise, slashing just .196/.274/.296 with 11 RBI in 201 plate appearances. He has been a solid fantasy option throughout his career and still can produce power and speed, making him a worthwhile roto player. However, fantasy managers in shallower points leagues may be able to find more impactful players to pick up.

    Carson Whisenhunt Tue May 28 12:30am ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher prospect Carson Whisenhunt fanned seven batters in five innings for Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday. The lefty allowed two earned runs on five hits while walking just one, although he also hit two batters. The strikeouts have been there this season for the former second-round draft pick, with 62 punchouts in 40 1/3 innings pitched, but the southpaw owns a 6.02 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 11 starts. Hopefully this is the start of something good for the Giants' top pitching prospect who still might see the big leagues this season, and with the big strikeout potential fantasy managers should continue to keep him on the radar.

    Lucas Sims Tue May 28 12:30am ET

    Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher Lucas Sims picked up his first save of the season in Monday's 3-1 win over the Cardinals. Sims came in to pitch the top of the ninth inning up by two and delivered a 1-2-3 outing with a strikeout. Closer Alexis Diaz had pitched the last two days, so Sims got the call to close things out. The 30-year-old has had a middling season, going 1-1 with seven holds as well as a 4.15 ERA, a 9.87 K/9 rate, and a 5.19 BB/9 rate in 17 1/3 IP. He has only seen two save opportunities all season, so his fantasy value is very low except in deeper saves-plus-holds leagues at this time.

    Bo Bichette Tue May 28 12:20am ET

    Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette made his one hit count in Monday's 5-1 win over the White Sox, going 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout. Bichette drilled a fourth-inning Nick Nastrini fastball over the center-field wall for his fourth HR of the season. The 26-year-old has had an uncharacteristically underwhelming season with the bat so far, slashing just .247/.297/.366 with 23 RBI. The good news is that he is running more overall and has picked things up in May with an improved .291/.330/.442 slash line. The Blue Jays have started slowly as a team offensively, but it looks like Bichette has started to turn the corner.

    Shohei Ohtani Tue May 28 12:10am ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter Shohei Ohtani said Monday that he has progressed to throwing from 60 feet. The two-way superstar is recovering from his second Tommy John surgery and hasn't pitched since 2023. He said his sessions have been 60 to 70 throws at up to 80 MPH. He and the Dodgers are hoping he can return to the mound in 2025. Ohtani has still been a top fantasy player without pitching, as he has slashed an impressive .336/.403/.621 with 13 home runs, 35 RBI, and 13 stolen bases in 239 plate appearances. He has a way to go before providing fantasy value as a pitcher again, but Ohtani should continue to be one of fantasy's best players.

    Trey Lipscomb Tue May 28 12:10am ET

    Washington Nationals infield prospect Trey Lipscomb has continued to hit since he was optioned back to the minors on May 17, including a four-hit game for Triple-A Rochester on Sunday and going 9-for-28 (.321) with a pair of stolen bases over the last seven games. On the season, the 23-year-old is hitting .327 in the minors (13 games), but while with the big league club he was able to swipe 10 bags and score 16 runs in 33 games despite a mediocre .252 average. If he can continue to get on base and get the call again, the former third-round draft pick could be a sneaky source of steals for managers in need, so keep him on your season-long radar.

    Noble Meyer Mon May 27 11:10pm ET

    The Miami Marlins have promoted pitching prospect Noble Meyer to High-A Beloit. The 2023 first-round draft pick posted a 2.65 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP with a 43:23 K:BB over 34 innings pitched so far this season. The 19-year-old is already ranked as the Marlins top prospect and 45th overall in all of baseball. The righty is not expected to reach the majors for a couple years, but should already be on dynasty league managers' radar.

    Justin Steele Mon May 27 10:10pm ET

    Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Justin Steele put together his most complete start of the year in Monday's loss to the division-rival Milwaukee Brewers, throwing a season-high seven innings of scoreless ball on three hits and one walk to go with a season-best eight strikeouts for a tough-luck no-decision. The three hits also marked a season-low figure for Steele, who hadn't tossed at least five scoreless innings in any of his prior five starts to Monday's strong outing. The 28-year-old southpaw has endured a trying year due to injury as well as poor results on the field overall, but his 31:7 K:BB over 32 1/3 innings should instill some optimism that a turnaround is on the horizon despite a lackluster 4.45 ERA. Steele next lines up to take the ball at home on Saturday against the visiting Cincinnati Reds, a team he's struggled against to the tune of a ghastly 8.64 ERA over 16 2/3 frames since 2022.

    Davis Schneider Mon May 27 10:00pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays outfielderDavis Schneiderhad a two-run home run on Memorial Day to put the game out of reach for the White Sox as Toronto won 5-1. AfterGavin Sheetshit a solo shot in the eighth inning to cut the Blue Jays lead to two, Schneider answered in the top of the ninth with his sixth blast to left field, scoringGeorge Springer and sealed the deal for Chicago. After mainly going undrafted in fantasy leagues this spring, Schneider looks to hold value sitting at the top of an under-performing but always dangerous Blue Jays lineup. Hopefully, Monday's home run will be a sign of things to come. The 25-year-old should be added to watchlists everywhere. Schneider is currently rostered in only 21% of Yahoo leagues and less than six percent of ESPN leagues.

    Kyle Schwarber Mon May 27 10:00pm ET

    Philadelphia Phillies designated hitter Kyle Schwarber clubbed his 10th home run of the season in Monday's loss to the hosting San Francisco Giants, adding a stolen base in the defeat. Schwarber crushed a two-run home run to right-center field off Giants left-hander Blake Snell, cutting the Phillies' deficit to 3-2 in the third inning, and he also tacked on a popup single in front of home plate in the seventh. In the month of May, the 31-year-old star slugger is slashing a strong .288/.422/.413 with two long balls, 16 RBI, 23 runs scored, and two steals over 80 at-bats as the everyday leadoff man atop Philly's loaded lineup. Keep rolling with the hot Schwarber for the remainder of the series against San Francisco, as he's batting .270 with seven big flies, 12 RBI, and 15 runs scored in 17 games for the Phils against the Giants in his career.
