    Austin Meadows Jul 30 6:50am ET

    Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Austin Meadows went 3-for-5 with two home runs, five RBI, and three runs scored during Thursday's 14-0 win over the Yankees. He blasted a three-run shot off Gerrit Cole in the bottom of the first inning to give the Rays a 4-0 lead. He later took Albert Abreu deep in the sixth inning for his second long ball of the game. It was the 26-year-old's second multi-homer effort over his last four games. Meadows is having an excellent bounce-back season in 2021 after a disappointing 2020 campaign, slashing .243/.330/.480 with 20 home runs, 76 RBI, 59 runs scored, and three stolen bases over 412 plate appearances.

    Anthony Santander Jul 30 2:53am ET

    Baltimore Orioles OF Anthony Santander (illness) worked out on Thursday, July 29, after clearing health and safety protocols the day before, and he could be activated during the team's current series with the Detroit Tigers.

    Lourdes Gurriel Jr. Jul 30 2:53am ET

    Toronto Blue Jays OF Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (elbow) was not in the lineup Thursday, July 29, after being struck by a pitch on his elbow in the previous game and removed. X-rays were negative, according to manager Charlie Montoyo, and Gurriel is considered day-to-day.

    Charlie Blackmon Jul 30 2:50am ET

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in a 3-0 shutout loss to the San Diego Padres. Blackmon was the only member of the Rockies to pick up multiple hits as Joe Musgrove and the Padres bullpen were locked in on Thursday. The veteran outfielder is slashing a solid .316/.350/.509 with two home runs, nine RBI, and two stolen bases over the last 15 games (57 at-bats). His power has been sapped this season but he's still a solid mixed league OF option with his on-base skills. Overall, he's batting .272 with a .763 OPS, six home runs, 48 RBI, and two swipes over 328 at-bats.

    Daniel Bard Jul 30 2:40am ET

    Colorado Rockies relief pitcher Daniel Bard took the loss on Thursday when he allowed two runs on one hit with a walk and two strikeouts in a 3-0 loss to the Padres. Bard entered the ball game in the bottom of the eighth inning with the Rockies trailing 1-0. He was tasked with keeping the game close but couldn't get the job done. He had his work cut out for him as he had to face the heart of the San Diego lineup. He walked Tommy Pham before striking out Fernando Tatis Jr. and getting Manny Machado to pop out. Jake Cronenworth made him pay, though, as he swatted a two-run blast to pad San Diego's lead. Bard took the loss and raised his season ERA to 4.32 to go along with a 1.56 WHIP and 55:21 K/BB ratio over 41 2./3 innings. The Rockies just traded away Mychal Givens so the closer gig should remain his down the stretch.

    Dinelson Lamet Jul 30 2:33am ET

    San Diego Padres RHP Dinelson Lamet (forearm) pitched a simulated inning on Thursday, July 29, and manager Jayce Tingler said it was 'very realistic' that Lamet was ready to transition to 'live game action.' Lamet will work out of the bullpen upon his return.

    Kyle Freeland Jul 30 2:30am ET

    Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Freeland took the loss on Thursday when he allowed one run on eight hits with one walk and four strikeouts over six innings in a 3-0 shutout loss to the San Diego Padres. Freeland ran into a little trouble in the first inning, culminating in an RBI double from Fernando Tatis Jr. but that would be the only run he would allow all game. The Padres hit him around a bit and had nine men reach base but Freeland was able to keep them off the scoreboard. The 28-year-old southpaw has a sterling 1.98 ERA and 1.07 WHIP over his last 41 innings (seven starts). Overall, he's got a 4.52 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 46:19 K/BB ratio over 61 2/3 innings (12 starts) on the year. He'll face the Cubs at home in his next turn and should be on the streaming radar for that one.

    Buster Posey Jul 30 2:23am ET

    San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (head) was held out of the starting lineup Thursday, July 29, after taking a foul ball off of his mask in the previous game. Manager Gabe Kapler said that Posey tested negative for a concussion, though, and could return as soon as Friday, July 30.

    Mike Moustakas Jul 30 2:03am ET

    Cincinnati Reds INF Mike Moustakas (heel) could begin playing in rehab games for Triple-A Louisville early next week, according to manager David Bell.

    Nick Senzel Jul 30 2:03am ET

    Cincinnati Reds OF Nick Senzel (knee) is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Friday, July 30.

    Eloy Jimenez Jul 30 1:43am ET

    Chicago White Sox OF Eloy Jimenez (groin) was not in the lineup Thursday, July 29, after being removed from the team's previous game with a groin strain. Manager Tony La Russa said the team is still awaiting word regarding the severity of Jimenez's injury.

    Jose Abreu Jul 30 1:43am ET

    Chicago White Sox 1B Jose Abreu (neck) was not in the starting lineup on Thursday, July 29, due to stiffness in his neck.

    Jacob deGrom Jul 30 1:33am ET

    New York Mets RHP Jacob deGrom (forearm) threw a side session on Thursday, July 29. It was his third since hitting the injured list July 18.

    Nelson Cruz Jul 30 1:33am ET

    Tampa Bay Rays DH Nelson Cruz (foot) was not in the starting lineup for a second straight game on Thursday, July 29, due to a bruised foot.

    Patrick Corbin Jul 30 1:30am ET

    Washington Nationals starting pitcher Patrick Corbin got plenty of run support Thursday night, leaving game two of the doubleheader against the Phillies in position for a win, but an unfortunate bullpen meltdown left him with just a no-decision. Corbin wasn't especially effective himself, allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk in five innings. He struck out two batters and gave up three home runs. It's his third consecutive outing with at least four earned runs allowed, and fantasy managers should be far away from him by now.

    Juan Soto Jul 30 1:20am ET

    Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto went 3-for-5 with three singles and two runs scored in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies. He was also caught stealing. He's been successful in just six of 12 attempts this season. Soto remains wildly effective at the plate as usual, but his fantasy value is bound to dip slightly with so many of his teammates around him being traded. Still, his power and plate discipline will keep him as a top fantasy asset, though he could stand to pick his spots a bit better on the basepaths.

    Ryan Zimmerman Jul 30 1:20am ET

    Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman started Thursday's nightcap against the Philadelphia Phillies, batting third and playing first base. He went 2-for-3 with two walks, an RBI, and two runs scored. As it stands, Zimmerman has only been in the lineup against left-handed starters, but with so many players on the move that could change. Starting first baseman Josh Bell could be moved as well, or the team has been experimenting with Bell in the outfield to create room for Zimmerman. He could have value in deep mixed and NL-only leagues in that scenario.
