Fantasy Player Updates & News

Yankees GM Brian Cashman announces that CC Sabathia will have micro-fracture surgery on his right knee, ending his season.

And that's probably all she wrote for the career as well. Granted, he doesn't have to do the same running as a position player, but given his weight and his delivery, it's going to be a very hard thing to come back from. He can officially be dropped in all formats. All of them.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI and a walk against San Francisco on Tuesday.

Given that Madison Bumgarner started for the Giants, this was a nice performance from Aramis. He’s hitting just .236 this year, but a .237 BABIP is a big part of that. He’s still hitting for power as he has six home runs now, so if his BABIP rebounds he may continue to be relevant in mixed leagues even in his old age. Analysis: Brett Talley

Brandon Belt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

After a slow start, Belt now has five home runs in his last ten games. His .396 BABIP won’t hold, but Belt is a career .271 hitter, so he’ll continue to be above average in that category. With 10-15 more home runs likely in his bat, Belt is an solid corner option in mixed leagues. Analysis: Brett Talley

Matt Duffy went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Duffy has a five-game hit streak going and has homered twice in those five games. His .361 BABIP will tail off, but he could still hit .255-.260, which is about average in mixed leagues. The real question is whether he can keep hitting for power. His HR/FB rate won’t hold, but he’s also hitting very few fly balls so far. If he elevates the ball a bit more, he could continue to provide some pop. Analysis: Brett Talley

Hunter Pence went 1-for-5 with a solo home run against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Pence has now been back for about 10 games, and he’s hitting .326 with double-digit runs and RBI with two home runs and a steal. His average will tail off once his .400 BABIP normalizes, but Pence should give you something in each category going forward. Analysis: Brett Talley

Santiago Casilla recorded his 13th save of the season against Milwaukee on Tuesday allowing two hits and striking out two.

Casilla’s strikeout and walk rates continue to be rather average, but he’s basically on pace for 40 saves. The skills make him somewhat of a risk and squarely outside the top closer tier, but saves are saves. You’re getting what you want out of Casilla. Analysis: Brett Talley

Madison Bumgarner allowed three runs and four hits with two walks and three strikeouts in six innings against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Given that the Brewers had the second worst strikeout rate and second worst wRC+ against left-handed pitching entering action on Tuesday, this was a disappointing start for Bumgarner. DFS players who rostered him aren’t thrilled with the return they got. No matter, he’ll again be an elite option when he takes the hill on Sunday against Atlanta. Analysis: Brett Talley

Bobby Parnell tossed a scoreless frame Tuesday for Double-A Binghamton.

Jeurys Familia has been excellent as the Mets closer this season, so Parnell probably isn't going back into a ninth inning role when he returns. He's worth a specualtive add in deeper leagues if you have the roster space, but Familia has just been too good. Analysis: Brett Talley

Matt Garza allowed five runs and eight hits with three walks and seven strikeouts in five innings against the Giants on Tuesday.

Garza hasn’t been as bad as his 6.00 ERA indicates, but that doesn’t mean he has been anything close to good. His strikeout rate is well below average as is his walk rate, which is by far the worst of his career. He might still be worth holding on to in very deep leagues, but his value is very limited at the moment. He’ll go again Monday in St. Louis. Analysis: Brett Talley

Update: The Dodgers/Braves multi-player deal is reportedly complete, pending approval from the commissioner's office.

Uribe hasn't started a game for the Dodgers in about a week, and he figures to see more playing time in Atlanta. Uribe is more useful with his glove than his bat, but he could have value in NL-only leagues if Atlanta plays him regularly.  Analysis: Brett Talley

After Tuesday night's game, Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny said his level of concern about Matt Adams's injury is "high" and that there will likely be a roster move.

This pretty much confirms that Mark Reynolds is about to see a bump in playing time. Reynolds is worth a look in OBP leagues and deeper standard leagues if you need power. Analysis: Brett Talley

Paul Millsap could reportedly require shoulder surgery this offseason.

With the Hawks being swept out the Conference Finals by Cleveland on Tuesday, this news broke rather quickly. Whether Millsap would be ready to go for the start of next season is unclear from this report. Analysis: Brett Talley

Wilmer Flores went 1-for-4 with a couple of RBI in Tuesday’s 5-4 victory versus the Phillies.

Flores waited until the 10th inning to extend his hitting streak to six games, as the young shortstop delivered a walk-off single that plated Juan Lagares and gave the Mets a dramatic win. During his current run at the plate, Flores has gone 7-for-22 with a homer and six RBI. Analysis: Nate Miller

Jake Elmore went 2-for-5 with four RBI against Seattle on Tuesday.

Elmore was recalled from Triple-A on Monday and made his first start since his return on Tuesday. Asdrubal Cabrera is day-to-day so Elmore could get a start or more two in the near future, but Tim Beckham and Nick Franklin are also in play at the middle infield spots for Tampa, so Elmore’s value is limited for now.  Analysis: Brett Talley
