Erick Aybar has a right foot contusion. X-rays were negative, he is day-to-day.

The good news here is that nothing is broken for Aybar and the Braves. This injury will have a bigger impact in NL-Only leagues as Aybar has not produced enough to be worth considerations in mixed leagues or DFS formats.

Matt Cain left Friday's game with an injury.

Cain lasted just 1 2/3 innings before exiting the contest. The Giants have yet to announce the injury that forced him from the game so fantasy owners will want to follow this situation as it develops.

Jon Lester allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits while walking two and striking out seven over 6.1 innings during Friday’s outing against the Phillies.

Friday was just another day at the park for Lester who has been excellent through the first two months of the 2016 season. He lowered his ERA to a cool 2.48 and notched his eighth quality start in 10 outings. Lester’s not allowing many base runners either, as his WHIP is a shade above one. Lester’s next start will come against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 with a home run (5), two RBI and one run scored during Friday’s game against the Phillies.

Slowly but surely it seems like Soler is putting it together. He blasted his second home run in three games on Friday and hit his third in his last seven contests. Soler’s still having a very subpar season thus far as he’s slashing .214/.308/.384. Continue to keep your eye on Soler as he could become valuable in fantasy if he continues to show improvements.

David Ross went 1-for-4 with a home run (4), three RBI and one run scored during Friday’s game against the Phillies.

Maybe Ross has figured it out – in his 14th professional season – or maybe the Cubs dynamic offense is contagious. Nevertheless, Ross has had a solid start to 2016. He’s catching two out of the five Cubs starters and still remains the Cubs second catcher in the pecking order. Ross does have four homers and 17 RBI but has virtually no fantasy value.

Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with a home run (11), one RBI, one run scored and one walk during Friday’s game against the Phillies.

The Cubs were already up four runs before Bryant deposited his 11th homer of the year into the stands in Friday’s victory against the Phillies. Over his last 10 games, Bryant has been flat out raking. He’s gone 12-for-40 (.333 AVG) with five home runs and 11 RBI. Bryant’s done everything you could ask for from a fantasy standpoint thus far in 2016 and there’s no reason to think it won’t continue.

Adam Morgan allowed six runs on eight hits while walking one and striking out three over four innings during Friday’s outing against the Cubs.

Friday’s start was Morgan’s sixth of the season and he’s had very varied results thus far. Two of his starts, including Friday, he’s been hammered and the rest he’s kept his team in the game. Morgan isn’t much of a fantasy asset as he doesn’t miss bats and isn’t putting together consistent performances. His next turn comes in a matchup against Max Scherzer and the Nationals so make sure he’s not even thought about in DFS on that day.

Maikel Franco went 1-for-2 with two RBI and a walk during Friday’s game against the Cubs.

Franco was the Phillies only form of offense on Friday as he drove in the both of the team’s runs. Franco has started to heat up of late as he’s raised his average over 20 points in the past two weeks. That’s in large part due to his recent five game hitting streak including three multi-hit contests. Franco was pegged to have a monster 2016 campaign and he’s beginning to show exactly what the hype was all about. He’s on pace for 27 homers and 95 RBI which are borderline top-five numbers amongst all third basemen in fantasy.
