Wil Myers (R) Headshot

Myers went 1-for-5 with a solo homer Saturday against the Giants.

Myers smashed his 19th homer of the season off Matt Moore to tie the game at one apiece in a game the Padres would eventually lose. His power is his greatest asset to fantasy managers while his .252 batting average leaves much to be desired.

Matt Moore (L) Headshot

Moore (3-10) allowed four runs on seven hits while striking out seven across six innings, but received no decision Saturday against the Padres.

Moore did quite well the first time through the lineup before getting pasted for four runs in the fourth inning, but the offense gave him enough support to keep him from losing his 11th game of the campaign. Even though he's thrown in a few decent starts on occasion, his 5.82 ERA is a fair reflection of the pitcher he's been all season, which is an extremely shaky fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Dodgers.

Luis Perdomo (R) Headshot

Perdomo (4-5) allowed four runs, one of which was earned, on eight hits and two walks while striking out four across six innings, but received no decision Saturday against the Giants.

Perdomo had a 4-1 lead going into the fourth inning, but an error turned into easy inning into a three-run rally by the Giants that kept him from earning his fifth victory of the season. He's held opponents to three or fewer earned runs in five of his last seven starts, and although he owns a 4.71 ERA, he's been showing signs of improvement, and he's become a player that fantasy owners should take a close look at. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Mets.

Viktor Arvidsson Headshot

Arvidsson signed a seven-year, $29.75 million contract with the Predators on Saturday, Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reports.

Arvidsson led the Predators in both goals and points last season, with 31 tallies and 30 assists. The 24-year-old was able to cash in on his breakout season, as he landed a long-term deal. He'll continue to operate as the team's top right wing, and power-play ice time is a given as well.
8:02 pm (EST)
Josh Rutledge (R) Headshot

Rutledge (concussion) will come off the DL prior to Monday's game in Seattle, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

He has been on the concussion DL since June 21, so this was a pretty serious head injury. However, Rutledge said earlier this week that his concussion symptoms are gone, so it is not surprising to hear he will soon be activated. The Red Sox will option a reliever as a corresponding move, so Rutledge will be left to compete with Deven Marrero and Brock Holt for at-bats at third base.
7:42 pm (EST)
Dallas Keuchel (L) Headshot

Keuchel (neck) built his pitch count up to 62 (48 strikes) in what was likely his final rehab start Saturday for short-season Tri-City, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. He allowed a run on three hits and zero walks while striking out five in five frames.

Keuchel is expected to rejoin the big-league rotation Friday in Detroit, although given his pitch count in this final rehab outing, it seems unlikely that he will be able to throw more than around 90 pitches in his first start off the DL. The 29-year-old southpaw has a 1.67 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 69 strikeouts in 75.2 innings this season. He is expected to face a Tigers team that has already traded J.D. Martinez and could move another impact bat (Ian Kinsler is being shopped) before Friday's game.
7:37 pm (EST)
Kyle Busch Headshot

Busch won the pole for the Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday afternoon.

It was no surprise to see the two-time Brickyard winner atop the scoring pylon after the final round of knockout qualifying. Busch piloted the No. 18 Toyota past Kevin Harvick to claim the top starting spot for Sunday's race at Indianapolis. The Joe Gibbs Racing star has been dominant at this historic oval the past two seasons, and he's the top contender to win the Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400.
7:24 pm (EST)
Justin Turner (R) Headshot

Manager Dave Roberts said he expects Turner (illness) to play Sunday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Turner is dealing with an upper respiratory issue, but he will be available off the bench Saturday and it sounds like he should be fine for the series finale. Confirmation as to Turner's status against lefty Sean Newcomb should come no later than the early afternoon with the game set for a 4:10 ET start.
