Tue Jun 1812:04No Timetable For Kerry CarpenterKerry CarpenterCFTigersDark Angel
The Detroit Tigers haven't indicated a timetable for outfielder Kerry Carpenter's (spine) return after he went on the injured list on May 29 (retroactive to May 27) with what the Tigers called lumbar-spine inflammation. Carpenter had been dealing with a lingering back issue and underwent tests the previous evening. The Tigers recently altered his diagnosis to a lumbar-spine stress reaction, which has been described by doctors as a crack in the bone that tends to appear clearly on MRIs and CT scans. It can take six weeks or three months for a stress fracture to settle down, so Carpenter's return isn't on the horizon. Before his injury, the 26-year-old had a 1.004 OPS against right-handed pitching, good for seventh in MLB. Carpenter should be able to return to full strength once the injury is healed, but he remains without a timetable and has yet to resume baseball activities.

Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter Shohei Ohtani had three hits during Monday's 9-5 win at the Colorado Rockies, his third multi-hit game in the last four.

He has recorded seven hits in his last 15 at-bats and is hitting .314/.388/.601 with 19 homers, 47 RBI, 55 runs scored, and 16 stolen bases. Ohtani is competing with New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge for fantasy MVP honors, and his fantasy managers are thriving behind his numbers.

Tue Jun 1806:06Sonny Gray Fans Four In Quality Start MondaySonny GraySPTwinsObi-Wan
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Sonny Gray (8-4) picked up a quality start in a no-decision Monday night, fanning four batters while allowing four runs on five hits and two walks in an extra-inning victory over the Miami Marlins. Gray continues to flourish with his new team to the tune of a 2.95 ERA and 1.02 WHIP on the season, to go along with 95 strikeouts in 76 1/3 innings pitched. Last season, Gray finished with 183 strikeouts in 184 innings pitched, but so far in 2024, Gray is racking up the strikeouts with about 20 more than innings pitched. Fantasy managers should feel great with Gray moving forward, especially with a matchup against the San Francisco Giants coming up this weekend.

Mon Jun 1710:05Yennier Cano Notches Third SaveYennier CanoRP/SPTwinsFree Agent
Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Yennier Cano was called upon to get out of a jam during Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. The O's were up 8-3 but a walk and two errors loaded up the bases for Philly in the ninth inning. After that, O's manager Brandon Hyde decided to go with Cano to get the final out of the game. The right-hander needed only four pitches as he struck out the only batter he faced. He earned himself his third save of the season, but remains behind Craig Kimbrel in a set-up role.

Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve gave his team a big lift during Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers. The veteran slugger went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in the 4-1 win. He also drew a walk and stole a base in what was a fairly productive day at the plate for Altuve. He's now slashing .299/.350/.460 with 11 home runs, 29 RBI, and 10 stolen bases on the season.

Mon Jun 1709:31Matt Wallner Showing Power In Triple-AMatt WallnerRFTwinsFree Agent
Minnesota Twins outfielder Matt Wallner went 2-for-5 with two runs, three RBI and a home run for Triple-A St. Paul. Wallner's home run would be the 16th of the season for Wallner, who opened the season with the big-league club. To go along with his impressive 16 longballs, Wallner has driven in 43 runs and hit .250 over 200 at-bats. Wallner made his debut last season and hit 14 homers in 76 games, but struggled with his time in the big leagues earlier this season with two hits in 25 at-bats. Wallner has light tower power, but doesn't offer much else and could eventually become a Quad-A type of player. The power is nice, but dynasty managers could feel safe swapping him for a player with better upside.

Mon Jun 1709:28Kutter Crawford Records Nine StrikeoutsKutter CrawfordSPRed SoxDoubleHeader
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Kutter Crawford showed off his hit-and-miss stuff during Sunday's outing against the New York Yankees. The right-hander racked up nine strikeouts while allowing only three hits in the win. The 28-year-old gave up a home run to Aaron Judge during the opening frame, but Crawford settled down after that. He gave his team six innings of three-run ball which was good enough to get the victory. He'll take a 3.54 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 88/26 K/BB ratio into his next start against the Cincinnati Reds.

Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Bailey Ober looked sharp during Sunday's outing against the Oakland Athletics. The right-hander allowed one run on six hits while striking out eight batters over 6 1/3 innings of work. Ober only walked two batters as he made easy work of the A's lineup. He been up-and-down this season but does have another favorable outing against the Oakland Athletics next week.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow had seemingly no issues during Sunday's outing against the Kansas City Royals. The right-hander struck out nine batters while throwing seven shutout innings during the victory. Glasnow had strong command in this one as he only walked one batter over the course of his outing. He'll carry a 3.00 ERA and 125/25 K/BB ratio into his next start.

Mon Jun 1701:18Logan Gilbert Nearly Untouchable Against RangersLogan GilbertSPMarinersDoubleHeader
Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Logan Gilbert dominated the Texas Rangers on Sunday, picking up his fourth win of the season in a 5-0 victory. Gilbert was electric throughout his eight shutout innings, striking out nine while allowing just two hits and walking none. Although he's been working deep into games and providing quality innings lately, he hasn't had a truly dominant performance like this one in a while, so it was nice to see. The 27-year-old now has an elite 2.93 ERA and 0.92 WHIP to go with 93 strikeouts in 98 IP. He should be treated as a top-tier fantasy option.

Sun Jun 1609:36Chas McCormick Hits First Home Run SaturdayChas McCormickCF/LF/RFAstrosBallbusters
Houston Astros outfielder Chas McCormick went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 13-5 loss to the Tigers. It was McCormick's first home run of the season and the three RBI account for 25% of his RBI total on the season (12). It has been a disappointing season for the 29-year-old after hitting .273 with 22 home runs, 19 stolen bases, and posting a 133 wRC+ last season. The right-handed hitter has tallied a .209-1-12-10-3 line through 36 games this season with a .255 wOBA and 64 wRC+. Until he heats up, McCormick will be off the fantasy radar in redraft leagues.

Sun Jun 1609:07Trevor Megill Picks Up 12th Save On SaturdayTrevor MegillRPTwinsFree Agent
Milwaukee Brewers closer Trevor Megill picked up his 12th save of the season in Saturday's 3-1 victory over the Reds. Megill walked Elly De La Cruz to start the ninth inning, who promptly stole second and then scored on Jeimer Candelario's double. That was the extent of the damage, however, as the 30-year-old was able to record three consecutive outs after that. Megill has been solid for the Brewers this season, posting a 2.25 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, a 23.2% K-BB%, 12 saves, three holds, and just one blown save. He only needs to hold down the role for about another month as Devin Williams is expected back sometime after the All-Star break.

Sun Jun 1606:32George Kirby Strikes Out Six, Picks Up Win SaturdayGeorge KirbySPMarinersThe Empire
Seattle Mariners right-hander George Kirby turned in an excellent start in a 7-5 win over the Texas Rangers on Saturday. Kirby allowed just one unearned run over six innings of work while striking out six and walking two to earn the win. The veteran hurler racked up 16 swinging strikes in the outing while improving his record to 6-5 on the season. Overall, Kirby has a 3.54 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 84 strikeouts over 86 1/3 innings of work this season. Kirby is a nice anchor starting pitcher for fantasy gamers and should be in starting lineups whenever he takes the mound. His next scheduled start is set for Friday on the road against the Miami Marlins.

Sun Jun 1606:24MJ Melendez Hits Grand Slam In Saturday WinMJ MelendezC/DH/LF/RFRoyalsDoubleHeader
Kansas City Royals outfielder MJ Melendez turned in a big performance in a 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday. Melendez went 2-for-4 with a grand slam to power the Royals to the win over LA. The veteran blew open the game in the seventh inning when he deposited a ball over the wall in right field to clear the bases and put KC up 5-2. Melendez worked a 12-pitch at-bat before ripping his first career grand slam, a shot that traveled 395 feet and had an exit velocity of 103.2 MPH. It has been a rough go for the veteran this season as he is now hitting .168 with eight homers, 19 runs, 23 RBI, and two steals across 196 at-bats in 2024. Hopefully the big night on Saturday will get his season turned around.

New York Mets designated hitter J.D. Martinez continued his recent hot hitting in a 5-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Saturday. Martinez went 3-for-3 with two walks, two homers, two runs, and three RBI, powering his team to the win. The veteran slugger hit a two-run shot in the fourth inning and followed that up with a solo blast in the seventh. Martinez is now hitting .286 with eight homers, 17 runs, and 26 RBI across 161 at-bats for the Mets in 2024. He's been on fire of late, batting .308 with three homers and 11 RBI over his past seven games. Martinez should be locked into fantasy lineups while he's swinging a hot bat.

The 23-year-old later crushed a three-run blast off Arrighetti again in the second inning to put Detroit up 7-0. He drove in a career-high six RBI in Saturday's victory. Greene has been on fire in June, hitting .321 (17-for-53) with four home runs and 14 RBI over 13 games. Overall, Greene is slashing .256/.348/.488 with 14 home runs, 36 RBI, 48 runs, and three stolen bases over 69 games in 2024. Fantasy managers should continue to roll with Greene in all league formats while he's wielding a hot bat.

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander went 2-for-2 with two home runs and four RBI in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Santander has been on a power surge in June and has homered eight times during the month. He is slashing .231/.307/.498 with 17 home runs, 42 RBI, and 38 runs over 66 games in 2024. Santander hits in the heart of the order in one of the most potent lineups in baseball, and fantasy managers should continue to roll with him in all league formats.

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Anthony Santander went 2-for-5 with his 15th home run of the season in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Orioles. The home run was a big one that knotted the game at 2-2 in the eighth inning, and came off of reliever Matt Strahm, who hadn't allowed an earned run in 27 consecutive appearances prior to Friday. After hitting .211 over the first couple months of the season, Santander has turned it on in June, hitting .273 with six home runs in 14 games. The switch-hitter now owns a .224-15-38-36-0 line with a .335 wOBA and 121 wRC+.

Sat Jun 1508:00Shane Baz Strikes Out Eight Across Six One-Run FramesShane BazSPRaysFree Agent
Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Shane Baz posted another dominant outing at Triple-A on Friday evening, where he tossed six one-run frames with eight punchouts and allowed just four hits and one free pass. Baz carried his momentum from his previous outing, where he struck out 10 batters across five one-run innings on June 8. The 24-year-old has now completed his extensive Tommy John recovery process and is on the verge of returning to the major leagues. He has not pitched in Tampa Bay since the 2022 season, where he logged just 27 innings, and should be on his way back to the majors very soon. He is a must-stash candidate in all leagues, as he possesses elite strikeout upside.
