    Shota Imanaga Mon Jul 22 3:20am ET

    Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Shota Imanaga had a stellar Sunday afternoon hurling seven one-run innings while punching out 10 batters with two hits and one walk allowed in a 2-1 extra-inning victory versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. After having a rough 5.67 ERA in June, mostly due to a 10-run blow-up performance against the New York Mets and a couple of short outings from the end of May and beginning of June, Imanaga proved to baseball fans everywhere once again that there is more than just one great "Sho" in town. Imanaga has been superb in three July starts with a 1.89 ERA in three games versus loaded lineups in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Arizona. Paul Skenes was looking like he could runaway with the National League Rookie of the Year Award, but Imanaga's last few performances have gotten him back in the race. It will be a fun battle to watch between these two exciting starting pitchers that is for sure. Look for Imanaga to continue the "Sho" against the Kansas City Royals next weekend.

    Michael King Mon Jul 22 3:10am ET

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Michael King (8-6) was the "King of the Hill" Sunday afternoon picking up the win and a quality start after tossing seven one-run innings allowing one run on two hits with six strikeouts and one walk in a close 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Guardians. King carried a no-hitter into the 7th inning before allowing a bloop single off the bat of Angel Martinez and another single to Jose Ramirez. Ramirez was tossed out at second base after trying to sneak an extra base after a long throw from right field to third base. The lone run allowed then came in on a Josh Naylor ground out. The 29-year-old hurler has been excellent in his last four starts in which he hasn't allowed more than one run in all four starts to some power house teams in the Red Sox, Rangers, Mariners, and Guardians. In the last month and a half he's lowered his ERA from 4.31 to a stellar 3.28 ERA on the season. His next opponent will be no walk in the park either with a matchup against the Baltimore Orioles on the road set for next weekend.

    Nick Castellanos Mon Jul 22 2:50am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos was at it again Sunday homering on yet another interesting day in our modern history. Castellanos smacked a a garbage time solo home run in the ninth inning, his 14th of the season, just a few hours after our current President Biden stepped down from his reelection bid. If you haven't been paying attention Castellanos has a flare for the dramatics during the most questionable times. He most notably homered in the middle of Reds former broadcaster, Thom Brennaman's, famous on-air apology and since then has tacked on a few more. He's homered in the past on the day Osama Bin Laden was assassinated, the day Queen Elizabeth died, the day the I-95 collapsed in Philadelphia, and even on the day of the recent assassination attempt on former President Trump. If crazier things happened more on the daily Castellanos could potentially be reaching Barry Bonds' territory, but luckily for society's sake Castellanos has only 14 long balls on the season and not the 99 home run total he'd have if big news dropped every single day.

    Aaron Judge Mon Jul 22 2:30am ET

    New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge smacked his league-leading 35th home run of the season and pitched in a single in a 6-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday afternoon. The home run was of the three-run variety which puts his 2024 total at an absurd 89 RBI sitting here with about two and a half months left of the regular season. After a brutal first month of the season Judge looks like the MVP version of himself that set the American League home run record just two seasons ago. It's only been three games, but he's already off to a hot start in the second half with a 4-for-10 line with one home run and four RBI and three walks. Juan Soto's presence in the lineup has eased the offensive burden on Judge's shoulders this season and he should have no problem running away the American League MVP this season barring any injuries or major slumps.

    Juan Soto Mon Jul 22 2:20am ET

    New York Yankees outfielder continued his fantastic first season in the Bronx Sunday afternoon going 3-for-5 with an RBI-double and a run scored in a 6-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Soto almost kept the Yankees come back hopes alive as his RBI hit brought the tying run up into the bottom of the ninth inning before Aaron Judge and Austin Wells were retired to end the game. The soon-to-be free agent has scorched the baseball in the three games after the all-star break going 8-for-13 which has raised his season batting average to a stellar .307. It looked like for the last couple of seasons that Juan Soto was going to regret that $500 million offer that the Nationals offered him, but after the 2024 season he's having, assuming he continues this for the remainder of the season, it wouldn't be shocking for him to get offers in that range during the 2024-2025 offseason. Look for him to continue to be a spark plug in front of Aaron Judge for the remainder of the season.

    Robert Suarez Mon Jul 22 2:00am ET

    San Diego Padres closer Robert Suarez hurled 1 1/3 perfect innings with one strikeout Sunday afternoon to pick up his 23rd save on the season. Suarez inherited one runner on first base with two outs after Bryce Johnson walked David Fry and proceeded to retire Bo Naylor. Then he returned for the ninth inning to retired the 1-2-3 hitters in the Guardians batting order to complete the 2-1 victory. The 33-year-old closer has been a dream scenario replacement for Josh Hader who left via free agency in the offseason. Suarez has a 4-1 record with a 1.62 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP in 39 innings pitched. Suarez has been arguably the best closer in baseball this season and should have no problem locking down the closer role for the remainder of the season and maybe for even more seasons to come.

    Tyler Fitzgerald Sun Jul 21 9:50pm ET

    San Francisco Giants infielder Tyler Fitzgerald has been showing off his pop at the plate over the last few games. On Sunday, Fitzgerald continued his hot stretch with a solo home run in the third inning. It marked the third straight game that Fitzgerald has hit a ball over the wall. Before this, Fitzgerald was mainly only playing against left-handed pitchers since his call-up last month. Possibly, the Giants give him more playing time with him showing an ability to hit right-handed pitching as well.

    Byron Buxton Sun Jul 21 9:50pm ET

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton has been hitting everything that comes his way lately. On Sunday, Buxton went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs in the loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. Fantasy managers that stuck with Buxton are finally being rewarded for their patience. Buxton is slashing .364/.413/.700 over his last month of games. He has earned himself a slot in the three-hole in the lineup, which might stay that way. Who knows how long it will last, but fantasy managers should continue riding out this hot stretch with Buxton.

    Carlos Estevez Sun Jul 21 9:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels relief pitcher Carlos Estevez was called upon to protect a three-run lead versus the Oakland Athletics on Sunday. The right-hander walked the leadoff hitter but retired the next three batters to record his 18th save of the season. The 31-year-old is having a nice year in what has been a down year for the Halos. There is a good chance that Estevez does get moved at the upcoming trade deadline. That being said, his fantasy value as a closer could be ending. It's unknown whether or not his new team would want him as their primary ninth-inning option. That being said, fantasy managers should hold Estevez until further notice.

    Ramon Urias Sun Jul 21 9:30pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles third baseman Ramon Urias (neck) was held out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Texas Rangers. It sounds like the plan was for Urias to start but he was scratched due to neck soreness. This shouldn't be the type of issue that holds Urias out of the lineup for too long. O's manager Brandon Hyde said the original plan was to give Gunnar Henderson the day off. However, Hyde needed Henderson to play on Sunday with Urias being unavailable. Fantasy managers will have to check back ahead of their next game to see if Urias is able to return.

    Miguel Andujar Sun Jul 21 9:30pm ET

    Oakland Athletics third baseman Miguel Andujar has been put together a quietly solid season so far. On Sunday, Andujar went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in what ended up being a loss for Oakland. The 29-year-old smacked a 377-foot home run off Carson Fulmer to give his team the lead. This season, Andujar is slashing .304/.327/.419 with four home runs and 24 RBI in 47 games. He could be a candidate to be moved at the trade deadline with the A's rebuilding their roster. However, a move elsewhere could still mean a part-time role which probably wouldn't help his fantasy value.

    Miguel Rojas Sun Jul 21 9:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Miguel Rojas (forearm) was removed early during Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox. The veteran infielder was taken out of the contest due to tightness in his forearm. The severity of the injury is unknown as the team will likely have Rojas undergo further testing. In his absence, Enrique Hernandez moved over to shortstop while Chris Taylor entered the game to play third base. Both players could see increased playing time if Rojas is forced to miss time.

    Ty France Sun Jul 21 9:10pm ET

    Seattle Mariners first baseman Ty France has been placed on outright waivers by the organization on Sunday. This comes as a bit of a shock considering France was an All-Star a few years ago. However, the 30-year-old has been slumping at the plate over the last two seasons. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, Seattle would be able to outright him to Triple-A or France can refuse and become a free agent. Despite his recent struggles there should be a contending organization willing to give him a shot. This season, France is slashing .224/.313/.351 with eight home runs and 31 RBI in 87 games. The Mariners appear to be committed to Tyler Locklear as their full-time option at first base.

    Yordan Alvarez Sun Jul 21 7:50pm ET

    Houston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez created history at the plate during Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners. The 27-year-old singled in the first inning to start off his incredible day at the plate. Later, Alvarez blasted a 429-foot solo shot off Bryan Woo in the fourth inning. Alvarez smacked an RBI triple in the sixth inning to pull his team within one run. After that, Alvarez slapped a double in right field to finish off his cycle. He becomes the second member of the Astros in the past 10 years to hit for the cycle, joining fellow teammate Jose Altuve.

    Hayden Birdsong Sun Jul 21 7:40pm ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Hayden Birdsong was showing off his hit-and-miss stuff during Sunday's outing against the Colorado Rockies. The right-hander struck out 12 batters while allowing two runs in the win. The Rockies only managed to record two hits and two walks while facing Birdsong. The 22-year-old has been solid for the most part during his time in the big leagues. He'll get another start against the Rockies during his next start. That being said, Birdsong looks like he'll be a worthy streaming option for that one.

    Junior Caminero Sun Jul 21 7:40pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Junior Caminero has been on a hot streak at the plate lately. The top prospect blasted his fourth home run in his past eight games on Sunday. Caminero currently sits as the No. 3 prospect in baseball according to MLB Pipeline. He has been on a tear at the place since returning from injury. The way Caminero is hitting it shouldn't be long before he's tearing the cover off the ball in Tampa Bay. It remains to be seen if the Rays will make Caminero a September call-up. Otherwise, Caminero should be ready to play on the big league roster for the 2025 season.

    Ozzie Albies Sun Jul 21 7:30pm ET

    Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (wrist) has been placed on the injured list after suffering a fractured left wrist during Sunday's game. The 27-year-old sustained the injury while sliding into second base while attempting to steal a base in the ninth inning. This is a crushing blow to an already banged up Braves roster. The organization said that Albies is set to miss eight weeks of action following the injury. Zack Short should see more chances at shortstop while Nelson Alvarez becomes an intruging call-up option for Atlanta. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues have a tough decision to make with Albies likely out until late September.

    Julio Rodriguez Sun Jul 21 7:30pm ET

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (ankle) was removed early during Sunday's game against the Houston Astros. The 23-year-old suffered an ankle injury when crashing into the wall while making an impressive catch. The Mariners took the cautious approach and immediately pulled Rodriguez from the game. The X-rays came back negative for any fractures which is great news for fantasy managers. For the moment, fantasy managers should consider Rodriguez as day-to-day with an ankle sprain. Victor Robles came into the game to replace Rodriguez and he figures to see more time in center field, assuming Rodriguez misses time.

    Ozzie Albies Sun Jul 21 5:00pm ET

    Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (wrist) is heading to the injured list according to David O'Brien of The Athletic. Atlanta skipper Brian Snitker expressed after Sunday's game that the injury is 'not good' and that the star second baseman will hit the injured list. Albies appeared to have suffered this injury when attempting to prevent a stolen base in the ninth inning. The 27-year-old has held a disappointing .256/.308/.403 line with eight home runs and eight stolen bases across 90 games this season. While the extent of the injury is not known, fantasy managers should expect the second baseman to be out for a significant amount of time. While sidelined, Zach Short should see most of the opportunities at the keystone.

    Michael King Sun Jul 21 4:50pm ET

    San Diego Padres starting pitcher Michael King tossed seven innings of one-run ball en route to earning his eighth victory of the campaign. He allowed just two hits and one free pass. He struck out six. King carried a no-hitter into the seventh but allowed a leadoff single to Angel Martinez. Martinez would then score on an RBI groundout, courtesy of Josh Naylor. The 29-year-old has now posted four straight strong outings as he entered Sunday riding a 1.56 ERA and 0.92 WHIP across his past three starts. In his first season as a starter, King has flashed elite upside at times but has had a few growing pains. The right-hander should remain in all lineups going forward and is a high-upside play in DFS.
