    Josh Naylor Mon Jun 24 1:40am ET

    Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor continued his strong season on Sunday, going 3-for-5 with a homer, a double, two runs scored, and an RBI. Naylor became the fifth major leaguer this season to hit 20 dingers with his fourth-inning shot. The 27-year-old is enjoying a breakout season where he has found his power stroke. Although his batting average is lower than usual at .244, he has the aforementioned 20 homers to go along with 58 RBI and an .835 OPS. He is easily a top-ten first base option in fantasy and is a must-start player.

    Luis Severino Mon Jun 24 1:40am ET

    New York Mets starting pitcher Luis Severino had his best start of the season on Sunday Night Baseball against the Chicago Cubs, throwing six shutout innings to pick up his fifth win of the season in a 5-2 victory. Severino was firing on all cylinders in this one, allowing just three hits and striking out ten while walking none. It was his first double-digit strikeout effort of the season and the first time he allowed no runs in a start. Some fantasy managers in deeper leagues may have given up on Severino after a bad start against the Texas Rangers last week, and he is worthy of an add in those formats. In standard size leagues, taking a shot on Severino could make sense if pitching is a need, but he will have to show this more often to become a must-roster player.

    Spencer Horwitz Mon Jun 24 1:30am ET

    Toronto Blue Jays infielder Spencer Horwitz went 2-for-3 with a pair of homers in a 6-5 loss to the Cleveland Guardians on Sunday. Horwitz did his part to give his team a chance to win this one, getting on base four times, scoring three runs, and driving in two. The 26-year-old has been dynamite since his call-up on June 8, batting .366 with a 1.041 OPS in 41 at-bats. He has consistently been hitting at the top of the Jays order, and that should continue given the struggles of the rest of their lineup. He is a solid waiver wire option in deeper leagues, especially points leagues given his ability to get on base at a high rate.

    Colt Keith Mon Jun 24 1:30am ET

    Detroit Tigers second baseman Colt Keith had a big game on Sunday, going 4-for-5 with a homer, a double, three runs scored, and three RBI in an 11-2 thumping of the Chicago White Sox. Keith, like the rest of the Tigers lineup, feasted on White Sox starter Jonathan Cannon, homering off him in the first before hitting an RBI double in the second. Although it was a nice game for the youngster, he still has a long way to go before he can be considered in any redraft fantasy format. He does have two four-hit games in the past eight days, so he should be placed on watch lists in deeper formats for now.

    Blake Snell Mon Jun 24 1:20am ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Blake Snell (groin) labored through his first rehab start on Sunday, tossing 1 innings while allowing two runs on three hits. He didn't strike out a batter and walked three. It wasn't the appearance that Snell or the Giants were looking for and shows that he's going to need at least one more rehab start before he can return to the big league team. It's been a bit of a disaster season for Snell, who signed with the Giants late and hasn't been able to find his midseason form. Injuries haven't helped his cause, but that doesn't excuse the abysmal 9.51 ERA and 1.94 WHIP Snell has this season. Fantasy managers who own Snell know that he can turn it on at any point and look like a Cy Young candidate, but he will need to do that soon to salvage this season.

    Robbie Ray Mon Jun 24 1:10am ET

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Robbie Ray (elbow) continued his rehab assignment in Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, throwing 45 pitches in 2 IP. He allowed one hit and one walk while striking out a pair. Ray is in the process of a long rehab stint that is acting as his Spring Training. He will likely need a few more starts to build up his pitch count before he can return to the Giants, which will hopefully come at some point in July. Savvy fantasy managers should be looking to stash Ray, especially in leagues where IL spots are available.

    Edwin Diaz Mon Jun 24 1:00am ET

    New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz was ejected from Sunday's game against the Chicago Cubs after a routine check for illegal substances. Diaz was about to enter in the ninth inning and was looking to preserve a 5-2 lead and lock down another save before a typical check by the umpiring crew led to him being tossed from the game. The fireballer will now face the automatic 10-game suspension that comes with every sticky stuff ejection. It's a tough loss for both the Mets and Diaz's fantasy owners, who will have to look for alternatives to get into their lineups for saves this week.

    Framber Valdez Sun Jun 23 9:36pm ET

    Houston Astros starting pitcher Framber Valdez was solid on the mound during Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. The southpaw allowed one run on six hits over seven innings of work in the win. Valdez struck out seven batters while walking two hitters on the day. This wasn't an easy task for Valdez, but he turned out another strong outing. He has posted back-to-back quality outings after getting hit around by the Giants earlier this month. He'll take a 3.68 ERA into this next start against the New York Mets.

    Yainer Diaz Sun Jun 23 9:30pm ET

    Houston Astros catcher Yainer Diaz had a solid day at the plate during Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. Diaz went 3-for-3 with three RBI and two runs scored during Sunday's win. All of his hits were singles, but fantasy managers will take a three-RBI game any day. This season Diaz is slashing .264/.292/.412 with seven home runs and 37 RBI. It's certainly not elite numbers, but he's contributing enough at the catcher spot for fantasy purposes.

    Jake Irvin Sun Jun 23 9:20pm ET

    Washington Nationals starting pitcher Jake Irvin made easy work of the Colorado Rockies during Sunday's outing. Irvin allowed one run on three hits over six innings in a no-decision. The 27-year-old did everything he could even striking out 10 batters during this outing. His only mistake was allowing a solo home run to Michael Toglia in the second inning. Irvin continues to be a bright spot for the Nats this season. He should be a solid streaming option against the Tampa Bay Rays during his next outing.

    Kodai Senga Sun Jun 23 9:20pm ET

    New York Mets starting pitcher Kodai Senga (shoulder) was able to throw a successful 22-pitch live bullpen session on Sunday. This is the first time that Senga has been able to face hitters since early May. The expectation is that Senga will do this again before heading out on a rehab assignment. It's a step in the right direction, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect to get Senga back anytime soon. The hope is that Senga can rejoin the rotation following the All-Star break.

    Kyle Finnegan Sun Jun 23 9:10pm ET

    Washington Nationals relief pitcher Kyle Finnegan has been a feel-good story through the first three months of the regular season. The right-hander was called upon to hold a one-run lead against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday. Finnegan allowed back-to-back singles to start the inning. He was able to battle back and recorded the next three outs and notch his 22nd save of the season. For now, Finnegan remains a solid source for saves. However, that could change if he's moved at the trade deadline and ends up a set-up man elsewhere.

    Kyle Freeland Sun Jun 23 9:10pm ET

    Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Freeland made his return to the mound after not pitching since mid-April. The left-hander showed no signs of rust as he cruised through the Washington Nationals hitters on Sunday. Freeland threw six shutout innings, allowing one hit while striking out four batters in the no-decision. The veteran southpaw hasn't always been a viable option but should carry solid streaming appeal against the Chicago White Sox during his next start.

    Pablo Lopez Sun Jun 23 7:40pm ET

    Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Pablo Lopez delivered his best performance of the season during Sunday's outing against the Oakland Athletics. The right-hander recorded 14 strikeouts over eight shutout innings in the win. The 28-year-old only gave up two hits, which were both singles and walked one during his fantastic outing. This was a great bounce back outing for Lopez who was hit around by the Tampa Bay Rays during his last start. We'll see if he can build off this outing during his next start against the Seattle Mariners.

    Byron Buxton Sun Jun 23 7:40pm ET

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton was the main source of offense for his team during Sunday's game against the Oakland Athletics. Buxton opened up the scoring with a solo shot off Hogan Harris to give the Twins the lead in the second inning. He'd knock in another RBI with a double in the seventh inning. He finished the day 2-for-3 with two RBI in the 3-0 victory. The veteran outfielder is now slashing .245/.294/.408 with five home runs and 25 RBI this season.

    Max Scherzer Sun Jun 23 7:30pm ET

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Max Scherzer made his much anticipated season debut against the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. The 39-year-old threw five shutout innings, while allowing only one hit in the win. Scherzer also struck out four batters while walking no one with only 57 pitches. The expectation is that the Rangers are going to ease Scherzer back into things. It's worth noting his velocity was down a bit, but that clearly wasn't much of an issue during this outing.

    From RotoBaller

    Alex Bregman Sun Jun 23 7:30pm ET

    Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman was on fire at the plate during Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. Bregman went 4-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in the blowout win. The veteran slugger recorded two doubles and two singles but still somehow didn't come away with an RBI. Regardless, Bregman has been hot at the plate with a .364 batting average in the month of June. Fantasy managers should keep rolling him out there on a daily basis.

    From RotoBaller

    Heston Kjerstad Sun Jun 23 7:20pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Heston Kjerstad is expected to be recalled ahead of Monday's game. The 26-year-old was optioned to Triple-A after a short stint with the team in mid-May. During that time, Kjerstad recorded only two hits through 17 plate appearances. The Orioles didn't have enough playing time available in order for them to keep Kjerstad on the big league roster. They felt it was better if he received regular playing time in the minors. We'll see if the O's decide to give Kjerstad more at-bats this time around.

    From RotoBaller

    Sonny Gray Sun Jun 23 7:20pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Sonny Gray was fantastic on the mound during Sunday's outing against the San Francisco Giants. The right-hander allowed one run on one hit over seven innings of work in the victory. Gray also struck over eight batters and walked no one during this start. The only mistake Gray made was giving up a solo home run to Patrick Bailey in the seventh inning. Gray has looked like a great signing for St. Louis as he'll take a 2.81 ERA into his next start against the Cincinnati Reds.

    Cristopher Sanchez Sun Jun 23 7:10pm ET

    Philadelphia Phillies starter Cristopher Sanchez scattered three hits across seven scoreless innings during Sunday's 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. He struck out four batters without issuing a walk. It was the eighth quality start of the season for the 27-year-old and improved his record to 5-3. He now owns a 2.67 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 70:24 K:BB through 84 1/3 innings. Most impressively, Sanchez has only allowed one home run in his 15 starts. He is a top-50 fantasy starter heading into a promising matchup against the Miami Marlins next week.
