Updates & News
George Springer (hip) returned to the lineup and went 2-for-5 with two home runs, five RBI, and two runs scored during the Astros' 9-4 win over the Mariners on Saturday.
Daily League players, hopefully you have fallen into the habit of watching our player news feed prior to setting your lineups. You could have benefited from Springer's big night if you followed our advice earlier in the day when we relayed to you that "Springer is hitting better against right-handed pitching than left thus far with three of his four home runs coming off of righties," which he added to on Saturday. Springer is now hitting .293 (22-for-75) with six home runs, 16 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 19 May games.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Orioles are expected to option Tyler Wilson to Triple-A Norfolk.
Wilson's demotion to Triple-A will clear a spot in the bullpen for Oliver Drake, who's been pitching unbelievably well in Triple-A. Wilson hasn't been particularly bad since being called up, appearing in two games and posting a 4.50 ERA and a 2.50 WHIP, but Drake's performance appears to have have won him the opportunity to take that next step.

Athletics recalled Kendall Graveman from Triple-A Nashville.
Graveman will make the start in today's game against the Rays as a result of Drew Pomeranz being placed on the DL. Graveman struggled mightily in his four starts with the A's (8.27 ERA, 2.02 WHIP, 9/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio) prior to being sent back down to Triple-A, but has been dominant in his four minor leagues starts since then (1.85 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a 14/9 strikeout-to-walk ratio).
