Carlos Gomez Headshot

Carlos Gomez left Wednesday's game with an apparent injury.

This must have been music to the ears of the Astros fanbase, as they just recently created a fundraising page to buyout Gomez's contract. That should tell you all you need to know about Gomez's statistical season thus far, making him a fantasy pariah in 2016.

Zack Greinke Headshot

Zack Greinke will throw 60 pitches in an Arizona Rookie League game Friday.

Word is that if all goes well on Friday, Greinke will be cleared to return to the bigs after the weeknd. That bodes well for fantasy owners and the D-Backs alike, however it may be too little too late to change Arizona's last place fortunes this season.

Vincent Brown Headshot

Saints plan to release Vincent Brown with an injury settlement.

Thats a shame for Brown, however it was unlikely that he would make the team anyway, so he may end up getting something positive out of this at least. Best of luck to him on his recovery going forward.

Xander Bogaerts Headshot

Xander Bogaerts went 1-for-4 with a home run (12) on Wednesday afternoon against the Tigers.

What a season it has been for the young shortstop, as he is posting MVP level numbers. Sure he’s unlikely to win, but it’s really tough to outdo his projections of a .331 average, 20 home runs, and 103 RBI, not to mention an additional 20 steals to boot. He is correctly placed as the three hitter in this loaded Red Sox lineup as he is the catalyst of everything they do offensively.

Dustin Pedroia Headshot

Dustin Pedroia went 1-for-4 with a home run (11) on Wednesday afternoon against the Tigers.

This has no doubt been Pedrioa’s best season since 2012 when he played 159 games, hit .290, 15 homers, and drove in 65 runs. While many were worried that his career was on the downswing, the former MVP has really bounced back in a nice way in 2016. It helps that Boston finally put a loaded lineup around him in the two-hole, but it all counts the same to fantasy owners. Continue to start him going forward.

Miguel Cabrera Headshot

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a home run (21) on Wednesday afternoon against the Red Sox.

It’s good to see Cabrera back over the 20-plus homer hump, as his injury plagued 2015 was the first time since his rookie season (2003) that he didn’t reach the milestone. This season, the future hall of famer’s projections are just about par for the course for his expectations and the ones of his fantasy owners (.301 average, 33 home runs, 95 RBI).

James McCann Headshot

James McCann went 1-for-3 with a home run (6) on Wednesday afternoon against the Red Sox.

Sure he hit his sixth homer of the season, which is all well and good, but his .197 batting average makes him an untouchable in any fantasy format going forward.

Justin Wilson Headshot

Justin Wilson picked up his 1st save of the season on Wednesday afternoon against the Red Sox.

This is not something for prospective fantasy owners to get excited about, as Wilson was just filling in for regular closer Francisco Rodriguez who was home tending to a personal matter. Once K-Rod is back with the club, he will return to his regular role as the team’s primary closer.

Michael Fulmer Headshot

Michael Fulmer went 7 2/3 innings, allowed three runs on seven hits, while he struck out three in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Wednesday afternoon.

The rookie right-hander tossed another great game on Wednesday afternoon, as he pitched deep into the eighth inning and allowed only three runs. Unfortunately he didn’t factor into the decision, however his record still stands at a remarkable 9-2 for the season. With solid work all season long, there is no reason to expect Fulmer to falter at any point down the stretch going forward.

Eduardo Rodriguez Headshot

Eduardo Rodriguez went 5 1/3 innings, allowed three runs on nine hits and three walks, while he struck out six in a no-decision against the Tigers on Wednesday afternoon.

The repugnant season that Rodriguez was on pace for appears to be calming down, as he has returned to the bigs and pitched on par or better in his subsequent three starts. This is not an endorsement of his services in fantasy leagues per say, however his stock is one to watch going forward now that he seems to have regained his rotational role with Boston.
