Player Notes

  • Cubs and Braves scouting Nicholas Castellanos
    According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Cubs and Braves are among the teams that have been scouting Tigers' outfifelder Nicholas Castellanos.

    Advice: Morosi mentions both clubs as great fits for Castellanos -- who owns a 1.090 OPS against left-handed pitching this season -- since they are both clubs who could match up against the Dodgers' and their slew of southpaws in the postseason. Castellanos, who is a set to hit free agency at season's end, is a near lock to be traded before the deadline. 26 minutes ago
  • Marlins prospect Harrison has wrist surgery
    Marlins' prospect Monte Harrison is expected to be sidelined for the next 4-to-6 weeks after undergoing surgery on his right wrist.

    Advice: The 23-year-old has been limited to just 50 games so far this season due to various injuries. He has been terrific when on the field though, slashing .284/.372/.479 with nine homers, 22 RBI and 20 stolen bases at Triple-A New Orleans. 39 minutes ago

  • Padres to recall Luis Urias on Saturday
    Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that the Padres plan to recall Luis Urias from Triple-A El Paso prior to Saturday's game against the Cubs.

    Advice: It's unclear if that's going to mean the end of the Ian Kinsler era in San Diego, but it's certainly possible. It's also possible -- though unlikely -- that the Padres want to showcase the top prospect in advance of a potential trade. The 22-year-old is slashing .315/.398/.600 with 19 homers, 50 RBI and seven stolen bases in 73 games at Triple-A El Paso this season. 42 minutes ago

  • Keynan Middleton shut down after setback
    Keynan Middleton (elbow) has been pulled back from his minor league rehab assignment after suffering a setback.

    Advice: Middleton has been diagnosed with mild ulnar neuritis in his right elbow. The good news, is that his surgically-repaired UCL is still intact, though it's unclear how long he'll need to be shelved. It's obviously a tough break for the right-hander who was trending toward a return to the Angels' bullpen this month. Today, 5:39 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Max Muncy not in Dodgers lineup on Friday
    Max Muncy is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup for Friday night's showdown against the Marlins.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting first baseman. Joc Pederson is starting in his place at first base on Friday and batting leadoff against Zac Gallen and the Marlins on Friday. Today, 5:10 pm
    New Player Note
    Max Muncy LAD - 1B,2B,3B
  • Workman could remain as Red Sox closer
    Red Sox manager Alex Cora acknowledged Friday that Brandon Workman could remain in the team's ninth-inning role even after Nathan Eovaldi is activated on Saturday.

    Advice: Cora didn't want to pin down specific roles, but did indicate that the bullpen has become more structured in recent weeks -- where Workman has secured three saves in his last seven chances. It's still a fluid situation, but don't expect Eovaldi to step right into the closer's role upon his return. Today, 5:01 pm
  • Justin Upton not in Angels lineup on Friday
    Justin Upton is not in the Angels' starting lineup for Friday night's game against the Mariners.

    Advice: It appears to be nothing more than a regular day of rest for the oft-injured outfielder, though it comes at a disappointing time as Upton owns solid career numbers against Mariners' right-hander Mike Leake. Brian Goodwin will start in left field and bat leadoff for the Halos on Friday. Today, 4:40 pm
  • Eugenio Suarez ejected for arguing on Friday
    Eugenio Suarez was ejected from Friday's game against the Cardinals for arguing balls and strikes.

    Advice: Suarez took exception to a called third strike call against him in the first inning and made sure that the home plate umpire heard about it. Reds' manager David Bell was also given the heave-ho for coming to his player's defense. Today, 4:38 pm
  • Angels recall Jaime Barria from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP Jaime Barria from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: The 23-year-old hurler will start for the Angels on Friday night against the Mariners. He also has a chance to stick around, now that Matt Harvey was designated for assignment on Friday. Barria owns a 5.22 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 30/7 K/BB ratio in 29 1/3 innings with the Halos this seaosn. Today, 4:35 pm
  • Angels recall Jared Walsh from Triple-A
    Angels recalled INF Jared Walsh from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: The 25-year-old hasn't had much success in his limited action with the Angels this season, but is slashing .311/.422/.625 with 20 homers and 54 RBI in 70 games at Triple-A Salt Lake. He's only likely to see sporadic at-bats with the Halos for the time being though, which makes him irrelevant from a fantasy perspective. Today, 4:34 pm
  • Angels option Jake Jewell to Triple-A
    Angels optioned RHP Jake Jewell to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: The 26-year-old right-hander has struggled in his eight appearances with the Halos, posting a 7.50 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 12/5 K/BB ratio across 12 innings. He'll continue to function as depth at Triple-A. Today, 4:29 pm

  • Dodgers recall Casey Sadler from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled RHP Casey Sadler from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The right-hander was just optioned back to Triple-A on Thursday, but he'll be allowed to come right back with Dylan Floro heading to the injured list. Sadler owns a a stellar 2.05 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 13/6 K/BB ratio over 22 innings at the big league level this season. Today, 4:27 pm
    Not Active
  • Dodgers place Dylan Floro on 10-day IL
    Dodgers placed RHP Dylan Floro on the 10-day injured list with neck inflammation.

    Advice: The 28-year-old hurler has appeared in 37 games out of the Dodgers' bullpen this season, posting a 4.11 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 30/10 K/BB ratio over 35 innings. Casey Sadler was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move to take his place in the Dodgers' bullpen. Today, 4:26 pm
    10-Day DL
  • Angels designate Matt Harvey for assignment
    Angels designated RHP Matt Harvey for assignment.

    Advice: It doesn't come as a huge surprise, given that Harvey has been disastrous in 12 starts with the Angels and was obliterated again in Thursday's loss to the Astros. In all, he posted a 7.09 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 39/29 K/BB ratio over 59 2/3 innings with the Halos. Not exactly what the Angels were looking for when inking the right-hander to a one-year, $11 million contract over the winter. Still, there's likely to be other teams willing to take a chance on the 30-year-old hurler at the veteran's minimum after he undoubtedly passes through waivers unclaimed. Today, 4:23 pm

  • Mets option Luis Guillorme to Triple-A
    Mets optioned INF Luis Guillorme to Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Guillorme had been up with the big league club since the beginning of the month as an extra infielder. He's just 4-for-22 (.182) in his time with the Mets this year. Today, 4:15 pm
  • Mets option Chris Mazza back to Triple-A
    Mets optioned RHP Chris Mazza to Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Mazza, 29, has appeared in just four games for the Mets this season, posting a 5.19 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 6/2 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings. He'll continue to hone his craft at Triple-A until he's needed again. Today, 4:11 pm
  • Mets recall Steve Nogosek from Triple-A
    Mets recalled RHP Steve Nogosek from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: He and Tyler Bashlor were recalled from Triple-A on Friday while Chris Mazza and Luis Guillorme were optioned out. Nogosek sports a 7.71 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 3/2 K/BB ratio over 4 2/3 innings with the Mets this season. Today, 4:09 pm

  • Mets recall Tyler Bashlor from Triple-A
    Mets recalled RHP Tyler Bashlor from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: The 26-year-old hurler has appeared in 13 games for the Mets this season, registering an underwhelming 5.40 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 12/7 K/BB ratio. He'll function in middle relief and can be ignored for fantasy purposes. Today, 4:07 pm
    Not Active
  • Buster Posey not in Giants lineup on Friday
    Buster Posey is absent from the Giants' starting lineup for Friday night's showdown against the Mets.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the veteran backstop -- and not a bad time for one against right-hander Jacob deGrom. Stephen Vogt will start in his place and bat cleanup for the Giants on Friday. Today, 3:39 pm
  • Diamonbacks option Domingo Leyba to Triple-A
    Diamondbacks optioned INF Domingo Leyba to Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: The 23-year-old performed well in his limited action with the big league club -- going 3-for-9 with a double and an RBI -- he just simply wasn't getting enough playing time to warrant keeping him up. He'll continue playing everyday at Triple-A until he's needed once more. Today, 3:28 pm
