Profar will fill in at second base for Rougned Odor while he serves his seven game suspension. Profar hasn't played in a major league game since 2013 but the former number-one overall prospect has played well in Triple-A. He's hit .284 with five home runs. He has plenty of fantasy value over the next coupe of weeks.
With Matt Carpenter off on paternity leave, the Cardinals are without their leadoff hitter. Garcia has played well this season for the Birds and will get a chance to show what he's truly worth. His on-base percentage sits at an impressive .765 despite the small sample size.
The Blue Jays recently moved Jose Bautista into the leadoff role but with Joey Bats serving his one-game suspension on Friday, Carrera will be called upon to head the Jays lineup. Carrera has performed well this season hitting .333 although it's been in a limited role.
After sitting out two consecutive days with a quad injury, Tulowitzki feels well enough to play on Friday. Tulowitzki hasn't played well at all this season hitting just .209. We're not sure if he'll continue to stink it up but only time will tell. Right now he's a mediocre fantasy option at best.
Teixeira received a cortisone shot on Thursday and was originally projected to miss three days before returning. This is day two and he should return to the Yankees lineup at some point this weekend. Consider him day-to-day at this point.
This is nothing more than a standard day off for Ortiz. Hanley Ramirez will move from first to DH and Travis Shaw will shift over from third to first. Ortiz started Friday as the MLB leader in RBI and is right in the thick of things in the AL MVP race.
