Sole Brother --- appreciate your heads up about me dropping Strider, and yes it was a major screw up and it was suppose to be Steer. Didn't see your message until yesterday May 20th. Only 19 days tooooooooooo late. Doing to many leagues.
Oh my goodness hope they fix it.
LL I'm 99.9% sure you meant to drop Spencer Steer and not Spencer Strider lol... you should hit the commisioner up ASAP to fix it if that's the case
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments via email or phone at 636-447-1170.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres OF Juan Soto (back) grounded out as a pinch-hitter against the New York Yankees on Sunday, May 28, after he had been scratched from the lineup.
Los Angeles Dodgers RHP Gavin Stone's next scheduled start against the New York Yankees is in question as manager Dave Roberts told reporters Sunday, May 28, that he plans to 'reassess' Stone's spot in the rotation.
Minnesota Twins RHP Emilio Pagan (hip) was lifted from his relief appearance against the Toronto Blue Jays due to a left hip flexor strain Sunday, May 28.
St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Ryan Helsley took the blown save and the loss on Sunday in a 4-3 loss against the Cleveland Guardians. Helsley didn't have his command in this one, walking two and allowing a walk-off two-run double to Jose Ramirez. It was the flamethrowers fourth loss and fourth blown save of the season. Helsley had been good in May up until this one, going three-for-three in save chances and picking up three wins to only one loss. Still, he now holds a slightly disappointing 3.52 ERA and 1.26 WHIP on the season. He still should see the majority of save opportunities for St. Louis, so there is no need to panic yet.
Cincinnati Reds right-handed pitcher Alexis Diaz converted his 12th save of the season Sunday, closing out the Chicago Cubs in an 8-5 victory. Diaz struck out the side while only allowing an infield single in his inning of work. The Reds closer has been almost unhittable this season, with a 1.74 ERA and 0.87 WHIP to go with 40 strikeouts in 20 IP. He is now a perfect 12/12 in saves as well. Diaz has risen into the upper echelon of fantasy closers and should be regarded as one of the elites.
Los Angeles Angels RHP Reyes Moronta was sent outright to Class AAA Salt Lake on Sunday, May 28.
Arizona Diamondbacks right-handed pitcher Miguel Castro picked up his fifth save of the season in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Castro allowed just an infield single and struck out two in his inning of work. He now has a 2.22 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 22 strikeouts in 24 IP on the season and has been the Diamondbacks best reliever. He has also managed to pick up four of his five saves in May and seems to be the preferred option in the ninth. He should be rostered in any leagues where saves or holds matter.
Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Michael Soroka will be called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to start Monday's game in Oakland. It will be Soroka's first MLB start since August 3rd, 2020 as he has had to work his way back from two Achilles tears in the last three years. In eight minor league starts, Soroka went 1-2 with a 4.33 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 35 strikeouts in 35 IP. It is tough to know what to expect from the 25-year-old as he makes his long-awaited return, but a tasty matchup with the A's and the potential for a two-start week make him a worthwhile add in most leagues.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias (hamstring) may not be reinstated from the 15-day injured list when first eligible. Urias is eligible to return on June 3rd, and originally the Dodgers planned to have him back at that date, but he is still feeling discomfort in his hamstring and his timeline has been pushed back. Manager Dave Roberts said that Urias is likely to throw a bullpen on Tuesday and he won't be rushed in his recovery process. It sounds like the Dodgers are being extra cautious with this injury, but Urias should still be back in relatively short order.
Colorado Rockies outfielder/designated hitter Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 with a home run, three runs scored, and two RBI in a high-scoring 11-10 victory over the New York Mets on Sunday. The 36-year-old is putting together a resurgent campaign from 2022, now slashing .287/.369/.466 with 30 runs scored, five long balls, and 23 RBI in 2023. Not only has the hitting machine hit safely in all but three of his 21 games in May, but Blackmon's hot bat has also connected for a .339 average, nine extra-base hits, and 11 RBI over his last 16 games. The two-time Silver Slugger is a superior fantasy play when at home than on the road, but the Rocks will only play six of their next 23 games at Coors Field.
New York Mets outfielder/designated hitter Tommy Pham went 3-for-4 with four RBI, two stolen bases, and two runs scored on Sunday, but the team was outscored 11-10 against the Colorado Rockies. The 35-year-old didn't sign with the Mets until the late stages of the offseason and has underwhelmed overall. The three-hit attack raised his average to a still faint .225 with three homers, 14 RBI and five swipes over 89 at-bats this season. Pham may have helped DFS players take down a tournament on Sunday, but we wouldn't advocate adding the journeyman off fantasy waivers at this time despite the great performance. He's immersed in a part-time role with multiple New York batters.
Free-agent LHP Adam Morgan (Astros) announced his retirement from baseball.
Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Ben Joyce has been called up to the major league roster. The hard-throwing right-hander will take the spot of Matt Moore (oblique) on the active roster. Joyce is a third-round pick of the Angels who has been pitching in Double-A Rocket City this season. He holds a 4.60 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 24/13 K/BB ratio across 14 appearances this season. The flame-throwing right-hander has terrific stuff and could be a future closer for the organization. The expectation is that Joyce is going to start out by pitching in low-leverage spots out of the bullpen. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on him going forward.
Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Liam Hendriks is expected to be activated prior to Monday's game against the Los Angeles Angels. The right-hander is working his way back after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in January. He was eased back into action after undergoing cancer treatment. Hendriks made six rehab appearances and threw a bullpen session as well. It appears the 33-year-old is ready to rejoin the White Sox bullpen. He'll immediately resume his role as the closer, so Hendriks should probably be rostered in all formats.
Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Carlos Santana (back) was removed early during Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners. The switch-hitter was taken out of the contest due to back tightness. The expectation is that Santana will undergo further testing to determine the severity of the issue. It's possible that Santana does end up on the injured list from this issue. Fantasy managers who are relying on Santana should look for a backup plan in case he does miss time.
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve recently returned to the lineup and missing most of the first two months of the season due to injury. He has been swinging a red-hot bat this returning to the Astros' lineup. On Sunday, Altuve went 3-for-5 with his first home run of the season in the 10-1 win over the Oakland Athletics. The 33-year-old is slashing .370/.452/.593 with one home run and two RBI in his first seven games this season. Hopefully, he'll be able to keep swinging a hot bat.
New York Yankees 1B Anthony Rizzo (neck) is 'good' after undergoing tests following his early exit from the Sunday, May 28 game, and will be monitored over the next few days, manager Aaron Boone said.
Miami Marlins relief pitcher JT Chargois was tasked with closing down the game versus the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday. Normally, right-hander Dylan Floro is the closer in Miami, but he was unavailable after pitching in three straight contests. Chargois was able to hold the two-run lead, but he didn't make it look pretty. Chargois gave up a leadoff single that was quickly erased on a double play. After that, Chargois walked the next batter and gave up a double to Hunter Renfroe. Then, Mike Trout came to the plate with the tying runs in scoring position. Somehow, Chargois was able to escape the inning without any damage and earn his first career save. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect Chargois to get many save chances with Floro healthy.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Eury Perez was tough to hit during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Angels. The rookie right-hander allowed two hits over five scoreless innings during Sunday's 2-0 victory. Perez struggled a bit with his command, allowing four walks during this game. However, he was able to escape the jams and help his team get the win. Through four starts, Perez holds a 2.84 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 19/10 K/BB. He'll get a favorable matchup against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday.
