2017 Fantasy Baseball Weekly Planner: Week 13
Nate Miller
Allen Cordoba (R) Headshot

X-rays on Cordoba's injured hand came back negative and he is available off the bench during Sunday's game against the Tigers.

Cordoba departed after being plunked on the hand by a pitch during Saturday's contest. It appears that the injury isn't anything overly serious, but the Padres will play it safe and likely keep him on the bench during Sunday's series finale against the Tigers. The team has an off-day Monday, so Cordoba could make his return to the lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Madison Bumgarner (L) Headshot

Bumgarner (shoulder) hit off a tee Sunday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

In addition to pitching in an Arizona Rookie League game, Bumgarner added tee work to his list of rehab activities Sunday. The good news keeps coming for Bumgarner, who may begin a rehab stint with Triple-A Sacramento this week. Now, a return to the majors in the next few weeks does not seem totally out of the question.
3:06 pm (EST)
Austin Jackson (R) Headshot

Jackson left Sundays contest with the Twins after the fourth inning with left quad tightness, The Akron Beacon Journal's Ryan Lewis reports.

Jackson reached on an infield single and took second base on a wild pitch in the bottom of the fourth before Daniel Robertson took his place in the field the next inning. It is not clear when Jackson appeared to suffer the injury, but he should be considered day-to-day for the time being.
3:04 pm (EST)
Zack Wheeler (R) Headshot

Wheeler (biceps) threw a 72-pitch bullpen session Sunday, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports.

Earlier in the week, the Mets insinuated that Wheeler could only miss one start due to his presence on the 10-day disabled list. On Sunday, though, they were noncommittal about whether the right-hander would make his next start, which is scheduled for July 1 against the Phillies.
2:59 pm (EST)
Ben Gamel (L) Headshot

Gamel was sidelined Sunday with a minor groin issue, MLB.com's Josh Horton reports.

What appeared to be a rare day off is actually a lymph node issue that could cause Gamel to miss a few games. With a scheduled off day coming Monday, consider Gamel day-to-day for now until more information arises. Guillermo Heredia takes over in left in his stead, and would likely continue to do so in the event that Gamel is out for an extended period of time.
2:54 pm (EST)
Hunter Strickland (R) Headshot

Strickland has completed his six-game suspension and is eligible to rejoin the Giants on Sunday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Strickland will take back his role as one of the Giants' primary late-inning relievers. The 28-year-old currently holds a 2.08 ERA on the year.
2:53 pm (EST)
Addison Russell (R) Headshot

Russell exited Sunday's game against the Marlins with shoulder soreness, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Russell has had issues with his shoulder at various points during the season and it appears that the shoulder pain may have re-emerged. He'll be listed as day-to-day for the time being.
2:50 pm (EST)
Collin McHugh (R) Headshot

McHugh (elbow) completed a simulated game with all of his pitches Saturday, and will head to the minors for a rehab start next week, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

McHugh recently threw live batting practice, and appears to be making strides with his injury that has caused him to miss all of the 2017 season thus far. With a rehab assignment on the horizon, McHugh could be back with the club before the All-Star break barring any setbacks.
2:47 pm (EST)
Yasiel Puig (R) Headshot

Puig is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

Puig has been swinging a hot bat during the month of June, but the 26-year-old will head to the bench Sunday as the Dodgers face off against Tyler Anderson and the Rockies. J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports that Puig is dealing with a nagging hamstring injury, but that it's nothing serious at all. Cody Bellinger will start right field with Logan Forsythe taking over at first base and Austin Barnes drawing the start at the keystone.
2:44 pm (EST)
Dallas Keuchel (L) Headshot

Keuchel (neck) is likely to be out until after the All-Star break, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Although the southpaw has began throwing at 120 feet, he has yet to make any pitches on a mound, causing the Astros to be realistic about his return date. Since the team has little reason to rush their ace back into the fold, it becomes more and more likely that he will be out until the end of the All-Star break, placing his return around July 14.
