Mallex Smith Expected To Return This Week

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mallex Smith was sent down to Triple-A two weeks ago to refine his swing after slashing .165/.255/.247 to begin the year. He still found success on the bases stealing eight bags, but the M's made the move after Smith missed most of spring training with an elbow injury to give him more... Read More

Marco Gonzales Struggles With Command In Loss

Seattle Mariners starter Marco Gonzales had an inefficient outing against the Red Sox on Sunday Afternoon.

Domingo Santana Riding Six-Game Hitting Streak

Seattle Mariners outfielder Domingo Santana has picked his play back up lately after an uninspiring two-week stretch.

Jose Altuve Absent From Saturday's Lineup

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is out of the lineup for Saturday's contest versus the Texas Rangers.

Nomar Mazara Sits For Saturday Night Matchup

Texas Rangers outfielder Nomar Mazara is riding the pine Saturday night versus Astros starter Gerrit Cole. He's 1-for-16 versus Cole with 10 strikeouts and is also in a 4-for-33 funk at the dish. It's a good day for Mazara to clear his head on the sideline after producing a lowly .220/.283/.417 slash line to date.... Read More

Jay Bruce Slugs 12th Dinger Of Season

Seattle Mariners outfielder/first baseman Jay Bruce continued his torrid power surge Saturday afternoon with a two-run bomb off of Red Sox starter Rick Porcello.

Nick Senzel Leading Off Again Saturday

The Cincinnati Reds are keeping their stud outfielder Nick Senzel in the leadoff spot for the fourth consecutive game.

The 23-year-old has three homers, five... Read More

Alex Avila Activated From Injured List

The Arizona Diamondbacks have activated catcher Alex Avila of the injured list prior to Saturday's game versus the Braves. Avila rejoins a crowded catching depth chart with Carson Kelly, Blake Swihart, and John Ryan Murphy, but he should still find some playing time behind the dish and the occasional start at first base. Across six... Read More

Edwin Jackson Acquired By Blue Jays

Edwin Jackson's carousel of teams continues to spin as the Toronto Blue Jays acquired the right-hander from the A's for cash considerations. Jackson will likely enter the Blue Jays rotation but is nothing more than a look in AL-only formats. He had a decent 2018 with a 3.33 ERA, and 1.22 WHIP in 17 starts... Read More

Gleyber Torres Back In Lineup After HBP Friday

New York Yankees middle infielder Gleyber Torres is back in the lineup Saturday after he was hit by a pitch on his elbow in Friday's game.

Tyler Naquin Scratched From Saturday's Lineup

Cleveland Indians outfielder Tyler Naquin has been scratched from the lineup prior to Saturday's contest versus the Athletics. Jordan Luplow will replace him in right field batting sixth for the Tribe. Naquin is experiencing tightness in his left calf which doesn't appear to be serious, and he should be considered day-to-day. The 28-year-old has picked... Read More

Vince Velasquez Placed On IL With Forearm Strain

The Philadelphia Phillies placed starter Vince Velasquez on the IL Saturday with a right forearm strain. The right-hander was enjoying a decent season after a disastrous 2018 campaign currently holding a 3.86 ERA, 1.35 WHIP with a 1-2 record on the year. His control remains an issue and has limited him all season from going... Read More

Travis D'Arnaud Hitting Fifth In Rays Debut

After getting acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday, Travis D'Arnaud is making his Tampa Bay Rays debut on Saturday batting out of the fifth spot and starting at catcher.

Andrelton Simmons Receives Day Off Saturday

Los Angeles Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons is out of the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Baltimore Orioles. He's enjoying a tremendous season batting primarily out of the cleanup spot slashing .308/.325/.442 on the year. Simmons' 21 RBI and 18 runs on the campaign are well worth the late-round investment owners made, and he could... Read More

Stop Sleeping On Domingo German

When Luis Severino hit the injured list prior to the 2019 season, the Yankees pitching rotation appeared to lose their most threatening starter. When you lose a staff ace and a 19-game winner from the previous year, it undoubtedly shakes up the locker room as well as the mindset of upper-management for the upcoming season.... Read More

Ryon Healy Rips Three Doubles in Offensive Outburst

Seattle Mariners corner infielder Ryon Healy took over the major league lead in doubles on Wednesday with a trio of them in their lopsided win. He went 4-for-5 on the night with a pair of runs scored and RBI as he now has 16 doubles on the year. We hope some of these convert to... Read More

Anthony Swarzak Blows Third Save In As Many Opportunities

The disastrous outings continue to pile up for Seattle Mariners reliever Anthony Swarzak. He entered the ninth inning protecting a two-run lead before giving up a single, which was immediately followed by a Giovanny Urshela home run to tie the game. Swarzak proceeded to give up another single before getting lifted after only recording one... Read More

Catcher Waiver Wire Pickups For Week 6

With the calendar flipping over to May last week, we as fantasy managers, have to legitimately assess the state of our team's play so far.
