    Tarik Skubal Wed Aug 17 8:20pm ET

    Detroit Tigers left-hander Tarik Skubal (elbow) had successful flexor tendon surgery on Wednesday, according to skipper A.J. Hinch. Skubal's timetable for a return is unknown, but he's already been ruled out for the rest of this year and could possibly be late to begin the 2023 season, depending on how his rehab goes in the offseason. The 25-year-old southpaw had surgery after visiting with a specialist last week. A typical recovery for this type of surgery is around nine months, so fantasy managers should be expecting him to miss the start of next year. Skubal had a career-low 3.52 ERA (2.96 FIP) with a 1.16 WHIP and a 117:32 K:BB in 117 2/3 innings over 21 starts in 2022 before suffering his elbow injury.

    Dellin Betances Wed Aug 17 8:20pm ET

    Right-handed reliever Dellin Betances, the former All-Star reliever for the New York Yankees, announced his retirement from professional baseball on Wednesday. Betances was with the Los Angeles Dodgers on a minor league contract before he was released on Wednesday, leading to his decision to hang up his cleats. The 34-year-old had shoulder surgery last summer and had a rough 10.26 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, 19 strikeouts and 14 walks in just 16 2/3 innings in two minor league stops for the Dodgers this year. In his prime, Betances made four straight All-Star squads with the Yankees from 2014-17. Although he only had 36 career saves in 10 major league seasons, he was once one of the more feared late-inning, hard-throwing arms when he was at his best.

    Sam Clay Wed Aug 17 8:13pm ET

    New York Mets INF Eduardo Escobar (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Aug. 17, because of a strained oblique. The team also recalled LHP Sam Clay from Class AAA Syracuse and designated RHP R.J. Alvarez for assignment.

    Eduardo Escobar Wed Aug 17 7:50pm ET

    New York Mets third baseman Eduardo Escobar (oblique) has been officially placed on the 10-day injured list. The 33-year-old suffered a left oblique strain last week. The expectation was that he'd need a trip to the injured list, but the team was trying to wait it out. He was in the lineup on Tuesday, but was eventually scratched due to renewed soreness in his oblique. Brett Baty has been recalled from the minors and is starting in his place during Wednesday's game. Fantasy managers should see if Baty is available because he could have some short term value with Escobar sidelined.

    Wander Franco Wed Aug 17 7:40pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco (hand) is hopeful to resume his rehab assignment on Thursday, according to manager Kevin Cash. The switch-hitting slugger was pulled from his first rehab game due to soreness in his hand. The organization doesn't believe that the soreness is anything serious. The hope is that this isn't setback and Franco can get back on the field this week. Franco should only need a few rehab games before he's ready to rejoin the Rays' roster.

    Tyler Mahle Wed Aug 17 7:30pm ET

    Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Tyler Mahle (shoulder) was forced to exit early during Wednesday's start against the Kansas City Royals. Now, the right-hander will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder. It's worth noting that this is the same shoulder that has given Mahle problems in the past. The Twins are being cautious and having Mahle undergo more testing. Fantasy managers will have to wait until some time on Thursday for more information on his status.

    Ozzie Albies Wed Aug 17 7:20pm ET

    Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (foot) is expected to resume batting practice as early as next week. The 25-year-old is continuing to work his way back from a broken foot that has limited him to 62 games this season. Albies is aiming to travel with the team for their next road trip where he'll face live pitching. The organizations believes he could return in late August or early September. This is good news for fantasy managers who have been holding Albies through this injury. He could make a significant impact once he gets back on the field.

    Taijuan Walker Wed Aug 17 7:10pm ET

    New York Mets starting pitcher Taijuan Walker (back) came back with a clean MRI on Wednesday, according to manager Buck Showalter. This is good news after Walker was removed early during his start on Tuesday. It sounds like Walker will avoid a trip to the injured list, but could miss his next scheduled start. At least fantasy managers shouldn't be without Walker for too long. He holds a 3.36 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 85 strikeouts across 112 1/3 innings this season. Hopefully, Walker will only miss one start, but fantasy managers should stay tuned for updates.

    Joe Barlow Wed Aug 17 7:10pm ET

    Texas Rangers relief pitcher Joe Barlow (finger) has been activated from the 10-day injured list on Wednesday. The 26-year-old has been sidelined since mid-July due to a blister on his finger. He returns to an impressive 3.26 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 23/8 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings. The expectation is that he'll resume his role as the primary closer in Texas. He should be ready to come out of the bullpen for Wednesday's contest. Fantasy managers should make sure he's back on their active team for Wednesday.

    Jeimer Candelario Wed Aug 17 7:00pm ET

    Detroit Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario (illness) has been scratched from Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Guardians. The 28-year-old is dealing with a non-COVID related illness. The expectation is that he'll return to the lineup within the next day or two. In the meantime, Kody Clemens will cover third base and bat eighth against right-hander Cal Quantrill. Fantasy managers shouldn't bother considering Clemens as a streaming option for Wednesday.
