Cody Reed allowed seven runs on nine hits while striking out five over four innings against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Reed made his third professional start on Wednesday and it was his worst one to date. He’s struggled severely since being called up as he’s allowed four runs or more in each start. Although he’s struggled, Reed has shown off some serious swing-and-miss stuff striking out 20 batters over his first 16 professional innings. There’s no indication that Reed will be moved out of the rotation, but don’t be surprised if it happens.

Adrian Gonzalez has been ejected from Wednesday's game.

Gonzalez was ejected by third base umpire Dan Bellino after a strikeout. It's been a rough season for Gonzalez and the frustration continues to build for the veteran first baseman. He had a really good track record against Milwaukee, but due to the ejection, hopefully you didn't roster him in DFS.

Adam Duvall went 2-for-3 with a solo home run (22) and a walk against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Your National League leader in home runs, Adam Duvall, ladies and gentlemen. After being thrown to the weigh side by the Giants, the Reds have found a gem in Duvall who belted his 22nd home run of the season on Wednesday. Duvall had seven home runs in his career before this season, so this has been a shock to many. Duvall isn’t going to hit for a high average, nor will he be host to a high on-base percentage, but he has 41 extra-base hits in 74 games thus far this season. He should be relied upon in all fantasy formats and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down as he’s blasted nine homers in June alone.

Joey Votto went 1-for-2 with three walks against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Cubs’ manager Joe Maddon was up to his usual tricks on Wednesday as he decided to pitch around Votto for most of the game, walking him three times. Votto’s specialty has always been his ability to reach base and despite his run-of-the-mill .244 average, he was on the base paths four times on Wednesday, raising his OBP to .375. Votto hit north of .300 in the month of June and has looked much more like himself over the past month. Votto is still very valuable in all fantasy leagues out there.

Billy Burns will replace Khris Davis Wednesday night.

Davis was scratched with a left shoulder contusion, so Billy Burns will replace him int he lineup. Oakland will be without arguably its best power hitter tonight and possibly moving forward if his shoulder doesn't heal as quickly as hoped. Consider him day-to-day at the moment.

Ruben Tejada is expected to serve as the club’s primary option at third base versus left-handed pitching, according to manager Bruce Bochy.

Tejeda is going to provide the team with better defense, not exactly offense at the position. He was hitting .176 before going down the quadriceps injury, so temper your expectations for the third baseman.

Christian Friedrich allowed six runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out seven in five innings on Wednesday against the Orioles.

The strikeouts hadn’t been there for the southpaw lately, but they came back tonight. He still allowed four earned runs in five innings, which is far from ideal, but if he can maintain a decent strikeout percentage, he could find a way to be useful in NL-only formats. The San Diego offense isn’t likely to get him a ton of runs, so wins might be tough to come by for the southpaw. His next start will come on Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Brett Wallace went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run on Wednesday against the Orioles.

Wallace has really struggled of late. Since June 16, Wallace is just 4-for-16 with one home run and three RBI. His playing time has diminished due to the recent poor performances, which has drove his ownership in fantasy formats down tenfold. For the season, he’s hitting just .212 with five home runs and 14 RBI.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, four RBI and two runs scored on Wednesday against the Padres.

All Trumbo continues to do in 2016 is hit the ball. He’s hitting .282 with 23 home runs, 60 RBI, 45 runs scored and one stolen base. He is an AL MVP candidate at the moment and he should never leave your lineup. Trumbo is off to another hot start, however, his numbers tend to decline a bit in the second half of the season. For his career, he slashes .263/.314/.506 in the first half, compared to .242/.290/.419 after the Midsummer classic.
