Nolan Arenado (R) Headshot

Arenado went 2-for-3 with a walk, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Wednesday's 10-5 loss to the Cardinals.

The major-league RBI leader is now slashing .404/.429/.872 with six homers, 13 runs scored and 19 driven in since the All-Star break. Arenado is on pace to fall short of his third straight 40-HR campaign, but otherwise the 26-year-old is headed for another stellar season.

Adrián Béltre (R) Headshot

Beltre went 3-for-3 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs during Wednesday's loss to Miami.

With nine homers, 34 RBI and 25 runs through just 48 games, Beltre has made a huge impact since returning from injury. Additionally, his .933 OPS is his highest mark since 2004 when he mashed 48 homers during his age-25 season. Hitting in the heart of a strong Texas lineup will help him maintain his fantasy value, too.

Jeff Hoffman (R) Headshot

Hoffman (6-3) coughed up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out three over four innings in Wednesday's 10-5 loss to the Cardinals.

Even away from Coors Field, the right-hander couldn't find a way to turn things around. Hoffman now has a brutal 8.44 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 22:18 K:BB in 37.1 innings over his last seven starts, making him a radioactive fantasy play the next time he takes the mound Tuesday at home against the Mets.
8:42 am (EST)
Giancarlo Stanton (R) Headshot

Stanton went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, two RBI and three runs scored during Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

Stanton is in the midst of a power binge with 12 long balls, 20 RBI and 20 runs through his past 17 games. As a result, the slugger has grabbed the league lead in homers and is well on his way to a career-best showing across the board.
8:38 am (EST)
Leury García (B) Headshot

Garcia (finger) went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI for the White Sox's rookie-level club in Arizona on Wednesday.

Garcia commenced his rehabilitation assignment, finally getting back onto the field after sustaining a finger injury in mid-June. It's uncertain how many rehab games he'll need before he's ready, but an early August return to Chicago is likely. The 26-year-old outfielder had been putting together his best season prior to the injury and is anxious to get back and further submit evidence that he should be part of the team's rebuild plans going forward.
8:36 am (EST)
Christian Yelich (L) Headshot

Yelich went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, three doubles and four runs scored during Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

The youngster has now homered in back-to-back games to improve to a 1.014 OPS with four homers, 17 RBI and 19 runs through his past 25 games. Yelich is up to a .291/.368/.442 slash line for the year, and there is potential for him to continue rolling right through the end of the season. Following his slow start to the season, he might be underappreciated in some circles, so a buy-low bid could reward handsomely.
8:33 am (EST)
Todd Frazier (R) Headshot

Frazier went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

The blast was both his first homer and his first RBI since donning pinstripes, and he's now 5-for-21 (.238) since being traded to the Yankees. While he likely won't hit for an average much higher than that the rest of the way, the 31-year-old is now up to 17 home runs on the year and figures to be a decent source of power.
8:28 am (EST)
Ryan Cordell (R) Headshot

Cordell (back) will visit with White Sox team doctors, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

No surprise here. Cordell had the back injury when he was acquired from the Brewers. General manager Rick Hahn said there's a chance Cordell doesn't get into action until closer to instructional league this fall, but added the injury is a non-factor in terms of his long-term prognosis.
