• Dylan Moore homers and steals base in loss
    Dylan Moore homered and stole a base Thursday in a loss to the Guardians.

    Advice: Moore shellacked a Logan Allen pitch in the first inning to give Seattle a 2-0 lead. The steal gives the 31-year-old 13 on the season, and it’s the eighth homer of the season. Moore has scuffled in June with a .512 OPS, but he has homered in two of his last three games, and his power/speed combo will always be intriguing. Rotoworld 28 minutes ago

  • Will Brennan homers twice in win over Mariners
    Will Brennan homered twice while going 3-for-4 in a 6-3 win for the Guardians over the Mariners on Thursday.

    Advice: Brennan now has eight homers on the season. The first tied the game at 2-2 in the second inning off Luis Castillo, and he extended Cleveland’s lead to 6-3 with his blast off Trent Thornton. The 26-year-old’s platoon role makes it hard to justify him as a fantasy option, but he’s a sneaky-good daily play when he is on the field against righties. Rotoworld 28 minutes ago

  • Jesse Winker hits solo homer in loss to D-Backs
    Jesse Winker went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in a loss to the D-Backs on Thursday.

    Advice: Winker took Ryne Nelson deep in the sixth inning to cut the Diamondbacks’ lead to 4-2. The outfielder has homered in back-to-back games and now has eight roundtrippers on the year. It’s not quite the version we saw in Cincinnati a few years ago, but Winker has revitalized his career in DC with a slash of .270/.381/.421. Rotoworld 36 minutes ago
     
  • Jake McCarthy has three hits, two steals in win
    Jake McCarthy went 3-for-4 while stealing two bases in a 5-2 win for the Diamondbacks over the Nationals on Thursday.

    Advice: He also scored two runs. McCarthy’s pair of steals give him 12 on the season, while the three-hit game sees his average improve to .298 on the campaign. The 26-year-old was a player who showed flashes of this type of talent in 2022, but at least over the first half of the season, it appears he’s put things together quite nicely.

  • Jasson Domínguez out eight weeks with injury
    According to Yankees manager Aaron Boone, Jasson Domínguez will miss up to eight weeks with an oblique strain.

    Advice: We knew the oblique would keep Domínguez out for a couple of weeks, but this is an extensive period of time and one that could threaten his ability to contribute MLB at-bats this season. If Domínguez doesn’t return to minor league action until late August and then gets a couple of weeks to get his timing back at Triple-A, it would be September even before the Yankees can think about promoting him. If all goes well, he could be a candidate for a mid-September call-up, but the Yankees would then be thrusting him into a major role in the middle of a pennant race after missing a major chunk of time. It’s a shame because he was looking great after Tommy John surgery, hitting .356/.404/.609 with six homers and 13 RBIs in 23 games across three levels. Rotoworld Today, 12:05 pm
     
  • Nolan Jones (illness) remains out of the lineup
    Nolan Jones (illness) is not in the Rockies lineup on Thursday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Jones will miss his second straight game with an illness as Sean Bouchard fills in for him in left field and bats second. Jones has looked better since coming off the IL, going 5-for-13 (.385) with one stolen base and just two strikeouts to eight walks. The plate discipline improvements are really nice to see and there might still be a buy low window here before he returns to the lineup from this bout of sickness. Rotoworld Today, 12:00 pm

  • Charlie Blackmon remains out of the Rockies lineup
    Charlie Blackmon (hamstring) is not in the Rockies’ lineup on Thursday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It’s unfortunate timing for Blackmon, who was hitting over .300 over his last two weeks but now finds himself battling an injury during a week in which the Rockies will play all their games at home. For fantasy managers who picked Blackmon up, it’s OK to move on from him in shallower formats since it’s not a given he returns on Friday. Elehuris Montero will DH and hit fifth on Thursday.

  • Dealing with neck spasms
    Kepler had to exit Thursday's game against the Rays because of neck spasms, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Kepler tweaked his neck while sliding into first base when he attempted to bunt for a hit in the first inning. He should be considered day-to-day for now, but the Twins could provide more information on Kepler's status after the game. Rotowire.com Today, 11:31 am

  • Out eight weeks at Triple-A
    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Dominguez will be out for up to eight weeks at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre due to a "significant" left oblique strain, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Advice: Boone labeled Dominguez's oblique strain as "moderate" Wednesday, but the injury now appears to be more severe than the Yankees initially believed. The 21-year-old outfielder already missed the first two-plus months of the Triple-A season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, and an eight-week return timeline will keep him out of action until at least mid-August.
