Mike Foltynewicz will likely be activated and start on Thursday.

Foltynewicz had originally been slated for another rehab start but it appears as if that has been scrapped. He has had improved results this season, likely due to his ability to find the strike zone more consistently. To take the next step he will need to limit the amount of home runs he surrenders, but given his pedigree, Foltynewicz is an intriguing name to keep an eye on.

Melky Cabrera has a right wrist sprain and will miss at least 3-4 days.

Cabrera suffered the wrist injury yesterday but it is good that he will not miss extended time. Cabrera had been enjoying a productive season, his OPS currently sits at .806, so hopefully this injury will not affect his performance throughout the remainder of the season. J.B. Shuck will likely gain at-bats in Cabrera's absence but there is little to no fantasy intrigue there.

Magic acquired guard Jodie Meeks from Detroit in exchange for a future conditional second round draft pick.

Meeks will serve as some depth to fill in for recently traded Victor Oladipo. While certainly no one will confuse Meeks with Oladipo, he will provide some scoring ability, especially from distance. He averaged 7.3 points per game last season and knocked down 1.3 threes per game with the Pistons.

Lorenzo Cain has a Grade-1 hamstring strain and is expected back when he's first eligible to come off the disabled list.

This is relatively good news regarding his status. Still, there has to be some questions regarding his fantasy value when he is ready to return. To date, he has attempted 10 steals but has only been successful six times. Considering the nature of the injury, it is reasonable to expect that he may run less upon his return and that he may lose even more efficiency when he does decide to steal.

Noah Syndergaard said the bone spur in his elbow feels great and it's not an issue.

Call me skeptical. Syndergaard certainly wouldn't come forward and say this injury is a big problem and that he was going to put the ball on a tee for opposing hitters. His two most recent starts also seem to belie his assertion, however, as he has surrendered eight earned runs and 15 hits in nine innings in that span. This is something to monitor moving forward, but it is hard to act in regards to his injury right now. He cannot be cut but his trade stock is also likely quite low at the moment.

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The Rays leadoff man continued his solid 2016, collecting two hits off of David Price on Wednesday. Forsythe has become one of the more underrated leadoff hitters in the game, as he’s slashing .300/.367/.495 on the year. Forsythe’s uncanny ability to get on base and shoot the gaps for numerous amounts of extra-base hits make him a quality fit in almost all fantasy leagues around.

Brandon Guyer went 2-for-4 with a double, home run (7), two RBI and one run scored against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Guyer was activated off of the disabled list on Tuesday and returned to the lineup in a big way on Wednesday posting two extra-base hits including his seventh home run. Guyer got off to a great start to his season but was really scuffling at the beginning of June -- going 1-for-12 -- right before he injured his hamstring. Now that he’s back, expect him to platoon in the outfield like he was prior to his injury. The Rays also added Oswaldo Arcia since then, so there are now five guys vying for three spots when Kevin Kiermaier returns. Guyer isn’t reliable in many fantasy formats, if any at all.
