    Mike Trout Mon Jul 15 5:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (knee) continues to rehab and has said he's targeting the end of July for a return, but with no specific date. The three-time American League MVP is swinging the bat well but still needs to do outfield work. "I'm pretty sure it's going to be pretty soon," Trout said. The 32-year-old 11-time All-Star is recovering from surgery for a torn meniscus in his knee but is apparently making good progress. The Angels certainly won't rush him back into the fold in another lost season, but at worst, it sounds as though Trout will be back by early August. The future Hall of Famer was hitting just .220 (24-for-109) at the time of his injury in late April, but it had come with 10 home runs and six stolen bases in just 29 games. Trout has become injury-prone on the wrong side of 30, but he's still a must-start fantasy asset when he's healthy.

    Brian Anderson Mon Jul 15 5:30pm ET

    The Atlanta Braves outrighted infielder Brian Anderson to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday. Anderson was activated from the 10-day injured list last Wednesday but now is off the 40-man roster after playing in just one game for the Braves last week. The 31-year-old veteran third baseman has appeared in just three games for Atlanta in 2024 and is hitless in five at-bats with two strikeouts. He'll report to Gwinnett for the second half of the season and will hope to rejoin the Braves' big-league roster at some point as infield depth. In his eight years in the big leagues (six with the Miami Marlins) since debuting in 2017, Anderson has a .251/.336/.403 slash line with 66 homers, 273 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 630 games played. Anderson isn't anywhere on the fantasy radar this year.

    Paul Blackburn Mon Jul 15 5:20pm ET

    Oakland Athletics right-hander Paul Blackburn (foot) appeared in relief again in his second minor-league rehab appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday and threw gave up no runs on one hit with a walk and a strikeout in just two-thirds of an inning. Blackburn also hit a batter while throwing 23 pitches. The 30-year-old didn't look good in less than an inning of work in his first rehab appearance last week for Single-A Stockton, either, so the A's will surely want to see more from him on his rehab assignment before reinstating him from the 15-day injured list in the second half of the season. Blackburn certainly needs to stretch his arm out more if he's going to rejoin the A's starting rotation. Before his foot injury, he went 3-2 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 36 K's and 13 walks over eight starts. He'll be a low-upside, deep-league streaming option when he's back in Oakland.

    Ross Stripling Mon Jul 15 5:10pm ET

    Oakland Athletics right-hander Ross Stripling (elbow) hasn't fared well so far in his two minor-league rehab appearances. In his second rehab start for Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Stripling allowed three earned runs on five hits while walking one and fanning one in three innings of work. He threw 37 of his 56 pitches for strikes after going less than an inning in his first rehab appearance for Single-A Stockton. While the results weren't all that pretty on Sunday for the Aviators, it was surely an improvement over his first rehab start. Stripling is likely to need at least one more rehab outing in the minors before coming off the 15-day injured list to rejoin Oakland's rotation in the second half. The 34-year-old went 1-9 before his injury with a 5.82 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with just 35 strikeouts in 11 starts, so he'll only be worth looking at in AL-only leagues when he's back in the big leagues.

    Jeffrey Springs Mon Jul 15 5:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Jeffrey Springs (elbow) allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits while walking one and striking out three in 4 2/3 innings in his latest minor-league rehab start with Triple-A Durham on Sunday. The 31-year-old southpaw threw 77 pitches (51 strikes) in the outing and now has a 4.09 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 24 strikeouts and only two walks in 22 innings over his seven starts for the Bulls. It's unclear what might be next for Springs, but it's quite possible that he'll rejoin the Rays' starting rotation for the second half of the season after having Tommy John surgery in April of last year. The former 30th-round selection of the Texas Rangers in 2015 out of Appalachian State went 9-5 with a 2.46 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with a 144:31 K:BB in 135 1/3 innings in 2022 and is worth picking up off the waiver wire now in mixed leagues if he's available.

    Mike Clevinger Mon Jul 15 5:00pm ET

    Chicago White Sox right-hander Mike Clevinger (elbow, neck) looked good in his fourth minor-league rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, allowing one earned run on three hits (one homer) while walking one and striking out three in four innings of work. In Clevinger's second start since his rehab assignment was restarted due to neck stiffness, he threw 35 of his 51 total pitches for strikes. The 33-year-old isn't sufficiently stretched out, but the White Sox haven't ruled out Clevinger returning to the big-league roster for the start of the second half as he continues to build his pitch count. Either way, Clevinger is going to be a shaky streaming option for fantasy managers in deeper leagues once he rejoins the worst team in baseball from the 15-day injured list. Clevinger landed on the IL on May 28 with right-elbow inflammation.

    Gabe Speier Mon Jul 15 4:50pm ET

    Seattle Mariners left-hander Gabe Speier (shoulder) threw 14 pitches in a minor-league rehab appearance with Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, July 12, allowing two hits and a walk in an inning of work. "It went well. The [velocity] was a tick down than what we are used to seeing," manager Scott Servais said. "Which is very normal, since it's been almost six weeks since he's been out there." He'll have another throwing session in Arizona soon, and the team will gauge the likelihood of Speier returning to the active roster following this week's All-Star break. The goal is to have him for the first series of the second half against the division-rival Houston Astros, which begins on Friday. The 29-year-old southpaw had a 6.06 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with 22 K's and 10 walks in 16 1/3 innings out of the 'pen for the M's this year before suffering a left rotator-cuff strain.

    Ryne Stanek Mon Jul 15 4:40pm ET

    Seattle Mariners right-hander Ryne Stanek (back) issued a four-pitch walk to the first batter he faced in his outing in Sunday's series finale against the division-rival Los Angeles Angels and came up grimacing. After talking to the trainer and manager Scott Servais, Stanek left the game and was replaced by Austin Voth. After the game, Servais said Stanek was dealing with back spasms but didn't provide further information on tests or a timeline. The good news for the M's and Stanek is that he'll now have four days of rest during this week's All-Star break, so perhaps he'll avoid a trip to the injured list and could be available out of Seattle's bullpen for Friday's series opener against the division-rival Houston Astros. The 32-year-old veteran reliever already has a career-high seven saves in 2024 in his first year with the Mariners to go along with a 6-2 record, 3.79 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 42 K's and 14 walks in 38 innings pitched.

    Victor Vodnik Mon Jul 15 3:50pm ET

    Colorado Rockies right-hander Victor Vodnik picked up his second save of the season in Sunday's 8-5 win over the hosting New York Mets by throwing 1 2/3 scoreless innings on two hits while walking one and striking out two. Vodnik replaced Jalen Beeks in the eighth inning and has now picked up both of his saves in July. Colorado's closing situation has been a revolving door for most of the year, and Vodnik has now thrown his hat into the ring alongside Beeks as we head into the All-Star break this year. The 24-year-old former 14th-round pick of the Atlanta Braves in 2018 has a 4.73 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 59 career major-league innings since debuting in the big leagues last year, though, so fantasy managers searching for saves in deeper leagues shouldn't be expecting much from Vodnik, especially with the last-place Rockies.

    Max Meyer Mon Jul 15 3:50pm ET

    On Sunday, Miami Marlins starting pitching prospect Max Meyer struck out six batters over five scoreless innings, allowing three hits and three walks. After making three starts with the big-league club, Meyer was demoted to Triple-A Jacksonville in mid-April. Through his first 11 starts (39 IP), he'd posted a 6.00 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and a 46:18 K/BB. However, over his last three outings, he's allowed just one run. Since the start of July (15 2/3 IP), he's posted a 0.57 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 16:5 K/BB. Many expect the Marlins to sell at the upcoming Trade Deadline. If they ship away any starting pitchers, Meyer will likely be recalled.

    Robby Snelling Mon Jul 15 3:40pm ET

    To start the 2024 season, San Diego Padres starting pitcher prospect Robby Snelling has struggled with Double-A San Antonio. At the end of June, he had a 6.49 ERA, 1.66 WHIP, and 49:27 KBB. Fortunately, he's off to a good start in July. Through his first two outings, he's got a 3.86 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 14:3 K/BB. While the WHIP is still alarmingly high, Snelling has done a better job limiting runs. San Diego's #2 prospect (per MLB.com), he's expected to make his MLB debut at some point in 2025.

    Clay Holmes Mon Jul 15 12:50pm ET

    New York Yankees closer Clay Holmes took his sixth blown save of the year on Sunday in the series finale against the division-rival Baltimore Orioles in a 6-5 loss. In addition to the blown save, Holmes also picked up his fourth loss of the year after giving up three runs (zero earned) on two hits while walking two and striking out one in two-thirds of an inning. Despite going into this week's All-Star break on a sour note, the 31-year-old veteran has been better than he was last year and currently is sporting a 2.77 ERA (2.73 FIP), a 1.31 WHIP, 21 saves, 41 strikeouts and only 10 walks in 39 innings of relief for the Yankees in 2024. Holmes has reached the 20-save mark for the third consecutive season and is only four saves away from setting a new career-high. On a Yankees team set to battle for the American League East title in the second half, Holmes remains a high-end fantasy closer.

    Craig Kimbrel Mon Jul 15 12:40pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles closer Craig Kimbrel blew his fifth save of the season on Sunday against the division-rival New York Yankees but was bailed out and picked up his sixth win of the year in the team's 6-5 victory. Kimbrel allowed three earned runs on just one hit (a homer) while walking two and striking out one in an inning of work in the rough outing. All the damage came on a three-run homer off the bat of rookie Ben Rice after Kimbrel had walked a pair of hitters. The 36-year-old nine-time All-Star has had moments of frustration in 2024 in his first year in Baltimore, but overall he's been solid for the O's and will take a 6-2 record, 2.80 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, 23 saves and a 53:16 K:BB into the All-Star break in 35 1/3 total innings. Although his walk rate of 11.4% isn't ideal, he's also sporting a 37.6% strikeout rate, his highest mark since 2021.

    Jake Irvin Mon Jul 15 12:30pm ET

    Washington Nationals right-hander Jake Irvin imploded in his final start before the All-Star break on Sunday when he surrendered seven runs (six earned) on nine hits (two home runs) while walking three and striking out three in just four innings in a loss to the hosting Milwaukee Brewers. Irvin had been on a nice stretch for the Nationals and fantasy managers, but in his last two starts, including Sunday, the 27-year-old has given up 13 runs (12 earned). He has allowed plenty of hard contact this year but heads into the break with a solid 3.49 ERA (3.85 FIP) and 1.11 WHIP with a career-high-tying 99 strikeouts and 29 walks in 116 innings over 20 starts. Although Irvin has looked better in his second year in the big leagues, this is a reminder that he still has work to do. After throwing 121 innings in his rookie year, Irvin is already up to 116 this season.

    Camilo Doval Mon Jul 15 12:30pm ET

    San Francisco Giants closer Camilo Doval blew his fourth save of the season on Sunday against the visiting Minnesota Twins, giving up two earned runs on two hits while walking one and striking out one in just one-third of an inning in the team's eventual 3-2 victory. It was Doval's first blown save since June 28, and he had five straight scoreless appearances before struggling again on Sunday. The 27-year-old Dominican reliever hasn't had the best of seasons at the halfway point for the Giants, as he's currently has a 4.38 ERA (3.51 FIP), a 1.62 WHIP, 17 saves, 49 strikeouts and 24 walks in 37 innings pitched. Doval led the league with a career-high 39 saves in 2023, which earned him his first All-Star appearance. However, he's currently sporting a career-high 14% walk rate, and if he continues to hand out free passes in the second half, there's a chance he could lose his grip on the closer role.

    Trent Grisham Mon Jul 15 12:20pm ET

    New York Yankees outfielder Trent Grisham had a nice day at the plate in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the division-rival Baltimore Orioles, going 3-for-3 with a home run, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored. The home run was Grisham's sixth of the season in his first year in the Bronx after being acquired by the Yankees from the San Diego Padres as part of the Juan Soto deal. The 27-year-old left-handed-hitting outfielder has been playing more regularly of late with Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) on the injured list, as it has allowed center fielder Aaron Judge to take over designated hitter duties more often. Despite Grisham's strong performance to close out the first half of the season on Sunday, he's still hitting just .195/.301/.389 with a .690 OPS and will return to being a fourth outfielder for the Bombers when Stanton returns to the active roster.

    Miguel Sano Mon Jul 15 12:10pm ET

    The Los Angeles Angels released third baseman Miguel Sano over the weekend after he went unclaimed off waivers. Sano will now have the All-Star break this week to look for another organization to latch onto as corner-infield depth. After not playing in the big leagues at all in 2023, Sano made the Angels roster out of spring training this year but hit just .205/.295/.313 with a .608 OPS, two home runs, six RBI and 36 strikeouts in 95 trips to the plate over 28 games for the Halos before being designated for assignment. He became expendable once Anthony Rendon returned from a lengthy stint on the injured list in the first half of the season. Sano does have two 30-homer seasons in his career, but he'll likely have to settle for a minor-league deal elsewhere as he tries to work his way back to the big leagues.

    JJ Bleday Mon Jul 15 12:10pm ET

    Oakland Athletics outfielder JJ Bleday was feeling it at the plate on Sunday in the 18-3 blowout win over the hosting Philadelphia Phillies to close out the first half of the season. Bleday finished a home run short of the cycle and ended up going 3-for-4 with two doubles, a triple, a walk and four runs scored. It was an offensive explosion for the lowly A's, as they had eight total home runs in the outburst. Bleday's big game was nice to see, as he had gone just 1-for-23 at the plate in his previous six games. Fantasy managers in deeper leagues will be hoping his three-hit performance will carry over to the second half of the season, which starts on Friday. The former fourth overall pick of the Miami Marlins in 2019 out of Vanderbilt is playing regularly in his first year in Oakland and is hitting .230/.313/.420 with 11 homers, 32 RBI and 41 runs scored in 348 at-bats so far in 2024.

    Roman Anthony Mon Jul 15 10:20am ET

    Boston Red Sox outfield prospect claimed the first-ever Futures Skills Showcase this weekend. The Red Sox' No. 2 prospect made a statement by showing off his overall skills and topping a talented crop of young players in the competition. The 20-year-old is currently at Double-A Portland and is hitting .241 with 10 homers, 27 RBI, and eight stolen bases. Anthony is a premium prospect in the Boston farm system and could be a few years away from patrolling the outfield in Fenway Park.

    Chase Dollander Mon Jul 15 9:20am ET

    After a dominate performance for High-A Spokane in the first half of the season, the Colorado Rockies will promote pitching Chase Dollander to Double-A Hartford when the second half of the season begins. The former Tennessee Volunteer was selected with the ninth overall pick of the first-round in the 2023 MLB Draft and hasn't missed a beat in his debut season with Spokane. In 14 starts, MLB Pipeline's No. 36 prospect has produced a 2.83 ERA to go along with 111 strikeout and 28 walks in 70 innings. It is a much-deserved promotion for the 22-year-old that could quickly rise through the Rockies system. Although he will play half his games at Coors Field, managers in dynasty leagues should still consider rostering Colorado's future ace.
