Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Chicago White Sox. Sano is getting a routine day off, so fantasy owners don't need to be alarmed about any injury. Williams Astudillo will cover third base and bat seventh versus righty Dylan Covey. Astudillo doesn't have much upside in terms of fantasy value.
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher David Price was removed from Saturday's start after experiencing flu-like symptoms; he faced just three hitters. According to manager Alex Cora, Price had been experiencing similar symptoms since Tuesday, but he granted Price's wish to pitch through it, despite catcher Sandy Leon recommending the southpaw sit the start out. The 33-year-old was able to get through 15 pitches, and actually recorded a strikeout before being removed. Granted his health improves and the Sox keep the same rotation schedule, Price will get the Yankees on Thursday in what will likely be a tough return to the mound.
Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson (wrist) will return to Sundays lineup and bat seventh versus the Twins. Anderson missed Saturdays contest with a wrist injury, but is good to go Sunday in a matchup versus Twins starter Jake Odorizzi. Anderson is safe to deploy in all formats.
San Diego Padres starting pitcher Chris Paddack (neck) has been scratched from his scheduled start versus the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Paddack reportedly woke up with a stiff neck, so the Padres will push him back to Wednesday against the Yankees just to be safe. Robbie Erlin will make the start versus the Jays on Sunday. DFS players should be able to find a more reliable option for Sunday.
San Diego Padres outfielder Franmil Reyes (shoulder) is out of the starting lineup for the second straight game. Reyes is dealing with left shoulder soreness after tweaking it on a swing a few games ago. The Padres are considering Reyes day-to-day at the moment, so he won't be put on the injured list. Josh Naylor will play right field and bat second versus righty Marcus Stroman. Naylor won't be a reliable DFS option for this one.
Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Mitch Keller has been recalled from Triple-A and will make his major league debut on Monday versus the Cincinnati Reds. The Pirates play a doubleheader on Monday, so it's unclear which game Keller is starting. He could be an interesting DFS option and could be worth stashing in fantasy leagues. There is no word if Keller will stay on the roster after Monday, but he pitched well in the minors and should get more chances with the Pirates rebuilding.
Baltimore Orioles catcher Pedro Severino went 4-for-5 with four singles and an RBI in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Rockies. The 25-year-old has been a decent bat for the O's this season, posting a .276/.357/.494 slash line with five home runs and 12 RBI in 99 plate appearances. For a weak position, Severino is definitely worth a look in two-catcher leagues at this time.
Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Andrew Cashner improved to 5-2 despite a lackluster start in Saturday's win against the Rockies. Cashner pitched five innings, allowing five runs on eight hits (including a three-run home run) and no walks with five strikeouts. The 32-year-old has been mediocre this season, posting a 4.55 ERA with 48 strikeouts and 20 walks in 59 1/3 IP. However, he can be a cheap daily fantasy play in favorable matchups. One of those matchups could be his next scheduled start at home against the Giants.
Baltimore Orioles third baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez continued to heat up in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Rockies, going 3-for-5 with two singles and a two-run home run. The 25-year-old has now homered in each of his last four games and has five in his last seven games. Additionally, Nunez is hitting .391 with nine RBI in his last seven games. He has shown immense power potential at times this season and could be a useful streamer in deeper leagues when he's on.
Baltimore Orioles second baseman/shortstop Jonathan Villar had a great day at the plate in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Rockies. The 28-year-old went 3-for-5 with a single, a double, a three-run home run, and a strikeout. Despite the positive outing, Villar has been cold at the plate in May, batting .236 with three HR, 13 RBI, and three steals. His speed always makes him fantasy relevant, but hopefully, he can start to pick things up so he can be more useful for owners.
