Player Notes

  • Not in Tuesday's lineup
    Freeman is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Mariners.

    Advice: It looks to be a routine day off for the 25-year-old. Daniel Schneemann will start in center field for the Guardians on Tuesday while Freeman gets some rest. Rotowire.com 6 minutes ago

  • Corbin Carroll (side) leading off Tuesday vs. Nats
    Corbin Carroll (side) is leading off and playing center field against the Nationals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Carroll is back in the lineup after leaving Sunday’s game against the White Sox with discomfort in his side. The 23-year-old had an MRI back clean, and it’s great news for fantasy managers and the Diamondbacks that last year’s Rookie of the Year is back in action. Rotoworld 10 minutes ago
  • Starting rehab assignment
    Abreu (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday, Tommy Cassell of the Worcester Telegram and Gazette reports.

    Advice: Abreu is slated to bat second and serve as the designated hitter for the WooSox. He's been sidelined for just over two weeks with a right ankle sprain, so Abreu shouldn't need many rehab at-bats before rejoining the Red Sox' active roster. Rotowire.com 19 minutes ago
  • Royals option Drew Waters back to Omaha
    Royals optioned OF Drew Waters to Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: Waters lasted a week with the Royals and picked up just one hit in his eight at-bats. He’ll have a chance to rejoin Kansas City this summer, but in a role that provides no fantasy value. Waters will be replaced on the roster by reliever Carlos Hernández. Rotoworld Today, 10:30 am
  • Ends homer drought Monday
    Stewart went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Getting the start in right field and batting fifth, Stewart ripped a first-pitch fastball from Jon Gray down the right-field line in the second inning, giving the Mets an early 7-0 lead in an eventual 14-2 rout. The blast ended a 32-game homer drought for Stewart, with his last long ball coming April 30 -- in between, he slashed a woeful .145/.299/.182 with just two RBI in 67 plate appearances. The 30-year-old has seen his playing time largely evaporate with J.D. Martinez handling everyday duties at DH, and even if he heats up at the plate, Stewart's role isn't likely to change much.

  • Goes back on IL
    Triple-A Reno placed Barrosa on its 7-day injured list June 11 with an unspecified injury.

    Advice: Barrosa was on Reno's IL for about six weeks due to a hamstring injury before returning to action May 31, but he was shut down again just over a week later. It's unclear if Barrosa aggravated the previous hamstring injury, or if he's dealing with a new health concern. He's appeared in just 18 games for Reno this season, slashing .283/.389/.417 with one home run and three stolen bases across 72 plate appearances. Rotowire.com Today, 8:00 am
  • Nearing rehab assignment
    Bae (wrist) participated in live batting practice Monday, MLB.com reports.

    Advice: Bae has also resumed defensive work. Manager Derek Shelton indicated that Bae is close to beginning a rehab assignment, meaning he should be activated from the injured list prior to the end of June barring any setbacks. Rotowire.com Today, 7:47 am

  • Clubs ninth homer
    Schneider went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: The 25-year-old took Nick Pivetta deep in the seventh inning, but Toronto was in a 7-2 hole at that point. Schneider has been struggling in June, slashing .170/.224/.302 through 16 games, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him moved down in the order from his usual spot hitting first or second. On the season, he's batting .225 with nine homers, three steals, 31 runs and 34 RBI in 65 contests. Rotowire.com Today, 7:37 am
  • Without timeline for return
    Carpenter hasn't resumed baseball activities since being diagnosed with a lumbar spine stress fracture in late May, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Carpenter was placed on the 10-day injured list May 29 with lumbar spine inflammation, only for his diagnosis to change a couple days later once he underwent further testing. Three weeks after landing on the shelf, Carpenter remains limited to doing what manager A.J. Hinch described as therapy work, so the 26-year-old still looks to be at least a couple weeks away from being ready for game action. During Carpenter's ongoing absence, Matt Vierling has taken hold of a full-time role in the outfield, and Justyn-Henry Malloy has settled in as the Tigers' primary designated hitter.
