Update: Jason Heyward (back) will likely return to the lineup Wednesday or Thursday.

This is great news for Heyward owners who likely were a bit worried after he was ruled out of tonight's game due to the back injury he suffered the night before. If you own Heyward continue to follow Fantasy Alarm as we update you on when to get him back in your lineup.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba

Reds placed Marlon Byrd (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list.

Byrd suffered a fractured right wrist after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning during Tuesday's game. He is not expected back until sometime in August. Analysis: Howard Bender

Red Sox transferred Brandon Workman to the 60-day disabled list.

The Red Sox are just doing this as a clerical move to open up another spot on the 40-man roster. Workman is still eligible to return later this month, but might just end up back in the minors if/when he is activated. Analysis: Howard Bender

Colby Rasmus has been under the weather the last few days.

Rasmus is just day-to-day with the flu. Nothing more than that. The Astros will go with Preston Tucker and Jake Marisnick alongside George Springer for the time being. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jhonny Peralta went 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Peralta continues to make his bid for an All-Star spot in this year’s summer classic. In his last 10 games, he is hitting .368 (14-for-38), which has helped boost his season average up to an impressive .310. He is currently a top-3 performer at his position and he needs to be started in all formats on a daily basis. Analysis: Colby Conway

Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with two RBI and one run scored on Wednesday against the Brewers.

Carpenter is hitting .314 on the season and has been a consistent force out of the second spot in the team’s lineup. He has an extremely impressive on-base percentage, which equates to lots of runs for his owners. He has scored 35 times on the year, to go along with that impressive average, eight home runs and 27 RBI. Continue to start him in all formats. Analysis: Colby Conway

Trevor Rosenthal allowed one hit but recorded two outs on Wednesday against the Brewers to earn his 17th save of the season.

Rosenthal has been dominant this year, registering a 1-0 record with a dazzling 0.69 ERA. He has 17 saves and that number should be high again this year as the Cardinals are one of the better teams in the National League. Continue to run him out there in all formats. Analysis: Colby Conway

John Lackey allowed three earned runs on 10 hits with one walk and five strikeouts in seven innings on Wednesday against the Brewers.

Despite allowing 10 hits in seven innings, Lackey was his normal self in today’s outing. He has registered quality starts in three out of his last four efforts and his 2.93 ERA on the season is wonderful. The strikeouts come and go, but fantasy owners just want to see him continue to limit the damage done by the opposition and keep that WHIP down. He will face the Colorado Rockies on Monday in his first of two starts in the scoring week. Analysis: Colby Conway

Gerardo Parra went 4-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and one RBI on Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Parra was 1-for-17 in his last five games before busting out in a big way tonight. He will receive regular at-bats for the time being while Khris Davis is on the disabled list with a knee injury. This breakout game doesn’t warrant all owners to go pick him up, but it would be worth a shot if he can prolong any sort of success at the plate. Analysis: Colby Conway

Jimmy Nelson allowed seven runs (six earned) on seven hits with two walks while striking out five in five innings of work against the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Nelson has been an average fantasy pitcher this season, even if his record indicates he has been porous. He can be a quality source of strikeouts, but he is very prone to being knocked around a bit. His season ERA sits at 4.41 on the season, but there have been a few starts where he has been flat out dominant. You never really know what you’re going to get from Nelson, therefore warranting him as a serviceable asset in NL-only or deeper leagues. He will toe the rubber next on Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Analysis: Colby Conway

Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with two RBI, one run scored and a stolen base against the Twins on Wednesday.

While he is hitting for a high average (.292), there isn’t much production in other departments to consider him a fantasy stud. He has scored just 20 runs, hit only two homers, driven in 17 runs and only swiped three bases. He would be higher ranked if he could start producing in some of the other counting stats. Analysis: Colby Conway

Ricky Nolasco (ankle) could start Saturday if he comes out of his Thursday bullpen session without issue.

The Twins will simply take a wait-and-see approach here. Should he come away just fine, you can expect him to pitch and the Twins won't need to recall any sort of a spot starter. Analysis: Howard Bender

Dustin Pedroia went 4-for-5 with two runs scored and one RBI against the Twins on Wednesday.

Pedroia was a popular play in DFS today given his career track record against Minnesota starter Phil Hughes. Well, Pedroia didn’t disappoint. He has been red hot lately, hitting .392 (20-for-51) in his last 12 games, while hitting two homers and driving in seven runs during that span. He is a top-10 player at his position currently and he needs to be started in all formats. Analysis: Colby Conway

Shane Victorino (calf) has increased the intensity of his workout routine and running.

The Red Soz will wait until the end of the week to set a rehab assignment for Victorino as they aren't sure how many games they think he will need. Obviously the more games he plays the greater the risk he takes in re-injuring himself. Analysis: Howard Bender

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out seven in seven strong innings on Wednesday against the Twins.

What a start to the season for Rodriguez. He has been electric in his first two starts with Boston, allowing just one earned run on five hits in 14 2/3 innings. His 14:4 K/BB ratio is very impressive for the southpaw who is making a case that he is here to stay. It’s hard to fathom that Boston could send him back down to Triple-A, but he still needs to be owned in all formats. His next start will come on Wednesday against the division rival Baltimore Orioles. Analysis: Colby Conway
