  • Player Notes
    Edward Cabrera Sun Jun 23 1:40pm ET

    Miami Marlins right-hander Edward Cabrera (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list on Sunday morning. Cabrera has been sidelined since May 8 with a right shoulder impingement and appeared to be nearing closer to a return. This transfer to the 60-day IL now makes him ineligible for activation for another two weeks, so there must be a reason the Marlins wanted to slow down his progression. We will see if he makes his scheduled rehab start with Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday. The 26-year-old produced a bloated 7.17 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 31:14 K:BB across his first four starts this season. He can provide some value for fantasy managers due to his high strikeout upside, but he needs to prove he is healthy before being added to rosters.

    David Bednar Sun Jun 23 1:40pm ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates closer David Bednar (side) was placed on the 15-day injured list on Sunday afternoon with left side tightness. He was unavailable for Saturday's game and clearly needs extra time to recover. It is unclear how long he will be sidelined for. Bednar has been more sporadic than normal in 2024 as evidenced by his 5.17 ERA, but he has still converted 16-of-19 save opportunities and produced a 9.19 K/9. Aroldis Chapman should be the main beneficiary in Bednar's absence as he collected the save on Saturday. Chapman owns a 4.00 ERA, 1.67 WHIP, two saves, 13 holds and 45:27 K:BB this season. He is a worthwhile pickup for fantasy managers that are desperate for saves in the short term.

    Jesus Luzardo Sun Jun 23 1:30pm ET

    Miami Marlins starter Jesus Luzardo (back) was moved to the 60-day injured list on Sunday morning. The 26-year-old was originally placed on the 15-day injured list on Saturday afternoon after he was scratched from his scheduled start. He is set to miss around four-to-six weeks due to a lumbar stress reaction. It is Luzardo's second stint on the IL this year and another injury for a battered Marlins rotation. It has not been a banner year for Luzardo in the first place as he owns a 5.00 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 58:22 K:BB across 12 starts. It is unclear how the Marlins plan to set their rotation as they currently have six starters on the IL. Luzardo should be able to return right around the All-Star break barring any setbacks, but he has not been the most reliable fantasy asset even when healthy.

    Max Kepler Sun Jun 23 1:20pm ET

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (neck) is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Oakland Athletics. It will be the third straight absence for Kepler as he continues to deal with neck spasms. It initially looked like Kepler would avoid a trip to the injured list, but that is a bit more unclear now. The 31-year-old is slashing .251/.311/.422 with six home runs, 28 RBI and 25 runs across 55 games this season. He remains a fine power option in deeper league formats and should hopefully return to the lineup soon.

    Braxton Garrett Sun Jun 23 1:10pm ET

    Miami Marlins starter Braxton Garrett (forearm) was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left forearm flexor strain on Sunday morning. He was scratched from Sunday's start with reported elbow soreness, but now his ailment is clearer. Kyle Tyler was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville in a corresponding move and will start Sunday's game. The Marlins rotation has been decimated by injuries this season and Garrett is no exception. The 26-year-old produced a 5.35 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 34:4 K:BB through seven starts in 2024. It is unclear at this time whether Garrett will need surgery as additional testing still needs to be done. Nevertheless, it seems like he will be sidelined for a significant period of time.

    Kyle Gibson Sun Jun 23 1:00pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Kyle Gibson (back) is listed as the team's probable starting pitcher on Tuesday versus the visiting Atlanta Braves. Gibson was scratched from his last scheduled outing on Wednesday against the Miami Marlins due to back tightness, but it appears the injury won't cause him to miss anymore time or put him on the injured list. Although the 36-year-old veteran has limited fantasy upside due to his 18.8% career strikeout rate, he's been trending up of late and hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in each of his last five starts. In three outings in June, he's allowed six earned runs on 15 hits while walking six and fanning 21 in 18 2/3 frames. Gibson will be a bit more risky for fantasy managers on Tuesday, but he'll also be facing a Braves team that is much less dangerous with no Ronald Acuna Jr.

    Nolan Arenado Sun Jun 23 12:50pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado (forearm) is not in the team's starting lineup on Sunday against the visiting San Francisco Giants and right-hander Logan Webb. Veteran Brandon Crawford will get the start at third base and will bat eighth against his former team. After missing a game this week already due to an elbow injury, Arenado is out of the lineup again after leaving Saturday's contest early with pain in his left forearm. Fantasy managers will want to check back on Monday to see if he's active for the series opener against the visiting Atlanta Braves. The 33-year-old veteran has been very mediocre for fantasy managers this year and is hitting .258 (17-for-66) with a homer, three triples, six RBI, a stolen base and four runs scored in 18 games in the month of June. Crawford should be avoided as a DFS sleeper in the eight-hole.

    Rob Refsnyder Sun Jun 23 12:40pm ET

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Rob Refsnyder (knee) will serve as the team's designated hitter and will bat in the two-hole on Sunday to face off against the Cincinnati Reds and left-hander Nick Lodolo. In his only career at-bat against Lodolo, Refsnyder hit a solo home run. The 33-year-old veteran missed each of the team's last three games due to right-knee soreness, but he's feeling better now and is ready to give it a go in the series finale in Cincinnati. In a pinch-hitting appearance on Saturday, Refsnyder came through with an RBI single and is now hitting an impressive .324 (45-for-139) on the season, albeit with only two home runs, 18 RBI and 16 runs scored. So far in June, he's slashing .308/.383/.385 with four RBI. Refsnyder is getting it done at the plate but doesn't carry much counting-stat upside for fantasy managers and faces a tough matchup on Sunday.

    Eloy Jimenez Sun Jun 23 12:40pm ET

    The Chicago White Sox reinstated outfielder/designated hitter Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list on Sunday and optioned outfielder Oscar Colas to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move. Jimenez is right back in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Detroit Tigers and right-hander Reese Olson, serving as the designated hitter and batting third in the order. In seven career at-bats against Olson, Jimenez hasn't recorded a single hit. The 27-year-old has been sidelined since straining his left hamstring on May 21, but he went 8-for-18 with a homer, double and five RBI on his minor-league rehab assignment in the Arizona Complex League. Despite his inability to stay on the field consistently due to injuries, Jimenez deserves to be rostered in most fantasy leagues now that he's back in the fold.

    Jazz Chisholm Jr. Sun Jun 23 12:30pm ET

    Miami Marlins outfielder Jazz Chisholm Jr. (biceps) is serving as the designated hitter and is batting in his customary leadoff spot on Sunday versus the visiting Seattle Mariners and right-hander Bryce Miller. Chisholm was removed from Saturday's game early due to right-biceps tightness, according to manager Skip Schumaker, but apparently it wasn't a very serious injury. Chisholm has dealt with a couple minor injuries of late, but thankfully he hasn't been forced to miss much time and will be available for fantasy managers on Sunday. He's have a solid month of June amid some injuries, as he's hitting .288 (17-for-59) with two home runs, a triple, seven RBI, five walks, two stolen bases and five runs scored in 17 games played. Keep Chisholm in your fantasy lineups in a matchup against Miller, who Chisholm has never faced in his career.

    Tyler Stephenson Sun Jun 23 12:30pm ET

    Cincinnati Reds catcher Tyler Stephenson (undisclosed) is back behind the plate and is batting fifth for the Reds on Sunday against the visiting Boston Red Sox and right-hander Zack Kelly. Stephenson will return to action after missing the last two games with a minor undisclosed injury. The 27-year-old appeared as a pinch-hitter in the loss on Saturday, signaling that his return to the starting lineup was probably imminent. Now that Stephenson's injury is behind him, he will look to turn things around at the plate after going just 2-for-25 (.080) with no homers, a double, no RBI and six strikeouts in his last 10 games since June 8. The poor stretch has dropped his season line to .243/.322/.397 with six homers and 22 RBI. Fantasy managers may want to keep Stephenson benched until further notice.

    Taijuan Walker Sun Jun 23 12:20pm ET

    The Philadelphia Phillies placed right-hander Taijuan Walker (finger) on the 15-day injured list (retroactive to June 22) with right index finger inflammation on Sunday and recalled right-hander Michael Mercado from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move. Walker is officially dealing with a blister on his right index finger and will take at least the next two weeks to try and heal up. The 31-year-old veteran didn't look comfortable in Friday night's loss against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, when he allowed four runs on five hits across just four innings of work. Walker currently sits with a 3-3 record, 5.60 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, 43 strikeouts and 21 walks in 53 innings over his 10 starts in 2024. He has a greater chance for wins pitching for the Phillies, but his 18.7% strikeout rate, his lowest mark since 2018, is concerning.

    Giancarlo Stanton Sun Jun 23 12:10pm ET

    The New York Yankees placed outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list on Sunday with a left-hamstring strain and recalled infielder Oswald Peraza from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move. The move comes after Stanton had to leave Saturday's game against the Atlanta Braves in the fourth inning while injuring his left hamstring scoring from second base. Fantasy managers must keep the 34-year-old power hitter stashed in all league formats while he heals up. In the first lineup with Stanton sidelined on Sunday, Aaron Judge is serving as the DH and Trent Grisham is in center field. Even though Grisham is hitting just .113/.263/.306 on the year, he figures to be the biggest beneficiary in playing time for however long Stanton stays on the IL. In 260 at-bats this year, Stanton is hitting .246 (64-for-260) with 18 homers and 45 RBI.

    Orelvis Martinez Sun Jun 23 12:10pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays infield prospect Orelvis Martinez, the team's No. 2 prospect per MLB Pipeline, has been suspended for 80 games by Major League Baseball for violating the league's drug prevention and treatment program. Martinez tested positive for clomiphene, a performance-enhancing substance. The move comes shortly after the 22-year-old received made his major-league debut on Friday. While Martinez could return later this season when his suspension is up, fantasy managers in single-year formats that picked him up after his promotion can now safely drop him. In his only game played for Toronto on Friday, he went 1-for-3 with a strikeout. The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder out of the Dominican must remain stashed in all dynasty/keeper leagues for his plus power at a middle-infield position.

    Bryce Harper Sun Jun 23 10:00am ET

    Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper went 4-for-5 with his 18th home run of the season in Saturday's 12-1 rout of the Diamondbacks. Harper collected three RBI and scored twice in the contest as well. Harper now has a seven-game hit streak going, and has hit safely in 17 of his last 20 contests. The 31-year-old is having another MVP-caliber campaign, posting a .294-18-51-47-4 line with a .401 wOBA and 161 wRC+.

    Francisco Alvarez Sun Jun 23 9:40am ET

    New York Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez homered for the second straight game in Saturday's 8-1 loss to the Cubs. The home run accounted for the Mets only run of the ballgame, although Alvarez also doubled and walked in the contest. Alvarez was 2-for-14 (.143) over the first four games off the IL, but since then the 22-year-old is 10-for-19 (.526) over his last five games with two doubles, two home runs, three runs scored, and six RBI. Coming off a 2023 campaign in which he hit 25 home runs, fantasy managers would like to see this power surge keep going. So far he's also lowered his K% from 26.0% to 23.2% and upped his Contact% to 75.3%, so a final BA above last year's .209 seems plausible.

    Jameson Taillon Sun Jun 23 9:20am ET

    Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jameson Taillon pitched seven innings of one-run ball in Saturday's 8-1 victory over the Mets. The 32-year-old allowed just one earned run on six hits and no walks while striking out a season-high 10 batters, picking up his fourth win of the season. It was the veteran's third straight quality start, lowering his ERA to 2.90 (3.82 FIP, 4.29 SIERA) with a 1.27 WHIP and 12.8 K-BB% on the season. We'll see how long he can keep it up as the righty owns a 3.93 career ERA, but it seems limiting the long ball has been key to his success this season as he currently sports a career-low 8.6% HR/FB%, down from 13.4% last season. Taillon will face the Giants on the road next Thursday in his next turn through the rotation.

    Oneil Cruz Sun Jun 23 9:10am ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Oneil Cruz went 1-for-3 with a walk and his 10th home run of the season, a 445-foot blast into the Allegheny River, in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Rays. Cruz was batting .295 in June until a 1-for-13 stretch over his last four games, so he's back to hitting just .250 in June. For the season, the 25-year-old owns a .243/.295/.427 slashline. His OBP is so low partly because his BB% is below-average at 6.9%, but his SLG is high because, on the back of an 18.1% Barrel%, they tend to go for extra bases when he hits it. A 32.7% K% and 68.7% Contact% are going to limit his batting average, so hopefully he can keep slugging. Fantasy managers who drafted the Dominican surely were hoping for better than a 99 wRC+ season, however.

    Jared Jones Sun Jun 23 8:50am ET

    Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Jared Jones pitched seven innings in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Rays, allowing two earned runs on just three hits and three walks while striking out eight on his way to picking up his fifth win of the season. He also hit two batters, though, so his command was a bit off. Nevertheless, it was a nice rebound after allowing six earned runs his last time out against the Rockies. The 22-year-old is now 5-6 with a 3.66 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and a 19.4% K-BB% in 15 starts (86 IP). He'll have a tough test his next time out as he'll face the Braves in Atlanta next Friday.

    Wyatt Langford Sun Jun 23 8:30am ET

    Texas Rangers outfielder Wyatt Langford went 2-for-4 with his first career grand slam in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Royals. It was his third consecutive multi-hit game and eighth in June, now hitting .313 (21-for-67) for the month with four doubles, two triples, two home runs, 17 RBI, six runs scored, and six stolen bases in 18 games. The 22-year-old now has two home runs in his last four games, a welcome sign as fantasy managers who drafted him were expecting more pop based on his 70-grade power and after swatting six long balls in 21 spring games this year.
