    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.

    Kenley Jansen Mon Jul 15 1:30am ET

    Boston Red Sox closer Kenley Jansen picked up a rare two-inning save on Sunday, slamming the door on the Kansas City Royals in a 5-4 win. Jansen breezed by the Royals in his first inning of work, striking out all three batters he faced. Things got a bit scary in the ninth, with the Royals scoring a run and putting a runner on second, but Jansen got out of it for his 19th save of the season. The big righty has only gone more than one inning three times this year, but the incoming all-star break gives the Red Sox an easy way to rest Jansen up for the second half. He has gotten back to his prime form this season, going 19-for-20 in save chances with a 2.16 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 38 strikeouts in 33 IP. He is a solid closing option for the second half in fantasy.

    Zac Gallen Mon Jul 15 1:20am ET

    Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Zac Gallen got demolished on Sunday, allowing seven runs (six earned) in 3 IP in an 8-7 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. He got off the hook after the Diamondbacks rallied from 7-0 down to tie up the game, but ultimately it was too much to overcome. Gallen gave up nine hits and walked one while punching out just one batter. The 28-year-old has been pretty bad after a brilliant start on June 29 in his first game back off the IL, allowing 15 runs (13 earned) in 13 IP since. The all-star break is coming at a good time for Gallen, who could clearly use the rest. He should be held onto in fantasy leagues and makes for a decent buy-low if anyone is scared by his last few outings.

    Seth Brown Mon Jul 15 1:10am ET

    Oakland Athletics first baseman/outfielder Seth Brown had a big day on Sunday, belting two homers in an 18-3 drubbing of the Philadelphia Phillies. The A's hit a whopping eight homers in this one, and Brown did his part by smashing a couple of solo shots. He finished the day 3-for-5 and added three runs and three RBI to his totals. It's been a tough year for the 32-year-old, who has a .202 AVG, 16 runs, seven homers, 19 RBI, and four swipes over 193 at-bats. He doesn't need to be rostered in any fantasy formats.

    Christopher Morel Mon Jul 15 1:10am ET

    Chicago Cubs third baseman Christopher Morel nailed a pair of homers on Sunday, leading the Cubs to an 8-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Morel went 2-for-4 with two runs and three RBI to round out his line. The toolsy infielder has had a strange season, slashing just .202/.303/.387 while playing miserable defense, yet somehow being quite useful in fantasy by tacking on 42 runs, 18 homers, 50 RBI, and seven swipes in 341 at-bats. His statcast page is also a sea of red, so he could be a solid buy-low going into the second half.

    Ezequiel Tovar Mon Jul 15 1:00am ET

    Colorado Rockies shortstop Ezequiel Tovar finished his first half in style on Sunday, popping two homers in an 8-5 victory over the New York Mets. Tovar finished the day 3-for-4 with two runs, two homers, and four RBI. After a miserable stretch in early July where he went 0-for-28 with 11 strikeouts, Tovar has gone 11-for-25 (.440) in his last six games, hitting safely in each of them. The 22-year-old has been solid for fantasy this year, but his advanced numbers don't back it up and he has been trending down for some time. His fantasy owners will have to hope that his last few games get him on track for the second half.

    From RotoBaller

    Lawrence Butler Mon Jul 15 12:40am ET

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Lawrence Butler had a monster day at the dish on Sunday, launching three two-run homers in an 18-3 demolition of the Philadelphia Phillies. Butler ended the day 3-for-6 and added six RBI and three runs to his trio of homers. The lefty has shown signs of coming on in July, going 13-for-41 (.317) with seven homers, 17 RBI, and two steals in 12 games. He has also moved up to the leadoff spot in the A's lineup for the last two games and will likely stay there as long as he keeps hitting. He has a nice blend of power and speed that could make for a useful fantasy player if he can cut down on the strikeouts. Butler is a solid upside add in deeper leagues and should be watched in all categories leagues.

    Michael Toglia Mon Jul 15 12:40am ET

    Colorado Rockies first baseman Michael Toglia continued his power barrage on Sunday, blasting three solo shots to lead the Rockies past the New York Mets. Toglia went 3-for-4 with three runs, three homers, and three RBI on the day. The big slugger now has six homers in his last six games, giving him 16 in just 173 at-bats on the season. Although the average is terrible, his counting stats have been solid for the amount of at-bats he has and he's also chipped in a few steals, making him a somewhat useful fantasy player in deeper leagues. He should be looked at in deeper leagues where managers are in need of some pop.

    Corey Seager Sun Jul 14 10:00pm ET

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager has been named to the American League All-Star team on Sunday. The AL needed another player with Minnesota Twins shortstop Carlos Correa (foot) being unable to play. Seager will join the All-Star team for the fifth time in his career. The 30-year-old is well deserving considering how well he's playing this season. Seager is slashing .270/.355/.479 with 18 home runs and 48 RBI in 83 games.
