Player Notes

  • Solo homer in loss
    O'Hoppe went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: O'Hoppe went down on strikes in each of his first two at-bats before launching a solo home run off Luis Gil in the bottom of the seventh to bring the Angels back within one run of New York. It was the young catcher's fourth long ball in May and the third in his last seven games. He's now hit safely in four of his last five contests but is still batting just .247 on the month with 15 RBI and nine runs scored. Today, 4:39 am
  • Records fourth steal
    Contreras went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 10-6 win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Contreras has been held hitless just five times over 26 games in May, going 31-for-104 (.298) for the month. The catcher is up to a .323/.394/.509 slash line with eight home runs, four steals, 43 RBI, 45 runs scored, 15 doubles and a triple of 55 contests, so this month has actually been a bit of a cool-off compared to how he started the season. He's been able to have an everyday role between catcher and designated hitter as one of the best overall batters in baseball this season. Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Pops fifth homer
    Lee went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Lee took Blue Jays closer Jordan Romano deep in the ninth inning, but the White Sox couldn't build off his big hit. The catcher opened May 12-for-29 over eight games, then cooled off by going 7-for-36 (.194) over his last 12 contests. He's at a .274/.309/.427 slash line with five homers, 12 RBI, 11 runs scored, three stolen bases and three doubles over 123 plate appearances on the year. Lee still has an edge for playing time over the light-hitting Martin Maldonado. Yesterday, 8:30 pm
  • Reaches 10-homer mark
    Perez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an RBI double and two total runs scored in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Twins.

    Advice: Perez has hit safely in five straight games, going 6-for-21 (.286) in that span. The homer was his first since May 20 and his 10th of the year. He also crossed the 40-RBI mark Wednesday, getting him past halfway to matching his total of 80 RBI over 140 contests last year. The catcher is slashing .325/.386/.537 through 55 games in 2024. Yesterday, 7:56 pm
  • Connor Wong collects two hits in loss to Orioles
    Connor Wong went 2-for-4 and scored the Red Sox’ lone run in Wednesday night’s loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Wong smacked a one-out single off of Corbin Burnes in the opening inning and took second on a throwing error by Colton Cowser. He then went to third on an errant pickoff throw and scored the game’s first run on a ground ball off the bat of Dominic Smith. That would be the extent of the Red Sox’ offense though. With his two-hit attack, the 28-year-old backstop is now slashing .329/.368/.471 with five homers, 19 RBI and a stolen base on the season. Rotoworld Yesterday, 7:09 pm
  • Two homers in rout of Mets
    Smith went 3-for-5 with a double, two solo home runs and a third run scored in Wednesday's 10-2 win over the Mets.

    Advice: The catcher took David Peterson deep in the second inning before getting a hold of an Adam Ottavino sweeper in the eighth. It was Smith's first multi-homer game of the season, and the pair of blasts gave the 29-year-old 100 for his career -- making him the fourth catcher in history to reach triple digits in a Dodgers uniform along with Mike Piazza, Roy Campanella and Steve Yeager. On the season, Smith is slashing .296/.360/.516 with nine long balls and 36 RBI through 49 contests. Yesterday, 7:06 pm
  • Sitting down Wednesday
    Wells isn't in the Yankees' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

    Advice: Wells has gone 3-for-12 with an RBI and five strikeouts across his last three games, and he'll now take a seat versus Tyler Anderson and the Halos. Jose Trevino will get the nod to start behind the dish and bat eighth. Yesterday, 3:26 pm
  • Not in Wednesday's lineup
    Raleigh is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Raleigh started the first two games of the series but has a .403 OPS over his past 26 at-bats and will take a seat for Wednesday's contest. Mitch Garver will step in behind the plate while Mitch Haniger serves as the desigated hitter. Yesterday, 2:51 pm
  • Idle against southpaw
    Naylor isn't in the Guardians' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

    Advice: The Rockies will send lefty Ty Blach to the mound to begin Wednesday's contest, so the left-handed bat of Naylor will retreat to the bench. Austin Hedges will step in to play catcher while batting eighth. Yesterday, 2:18 pm
