Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Daulton Varsho went without a hit in the 10-4 loss to the San Diego Padres on Wednesday. He was 0-for-5 with a pair of punch-outs. Varsho's now hitting .237 with nine home runs, 32 runs, 28 RBI, and four stolen bases across 64 games. After a strong start to the season, the 25-year-old has done almost nothing since the end of May. Over his last 30 games, Varsho's slashing .229/.276/.356 with three home runs and one stolen base. He's startable in two catcher leagues, but fantasy managers in shallower formats can bench him until he turns things around.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Adam Duvall (hand) will remain out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Duvall was hit on his hand by a pitch during this past Saturday's game and he hasn't seen the field since. The 33-year-old crushed eight home runs throughout June while slugging .571 across the month, helping lift his season-long slash line to .205/.272/.376. However, now that Eddie Rosario is back with the team, we may start to see Duvall lose some playing time going forward as the team also has rookie Michael Harris II earning starts in the outfield.
The Cincinnati Reds have activated left-hander Nick Lodolo (back) from the 60-day injured list. He will be the team's starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the New York Mets. Lodolo landed on the injured list in late April due to a lower back strain. He made three starts prior to the injury and went 1-2 with a 5.52 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. The 24-year-old rookie performed well in his rehab outings. In his final tuneup at Triple-A last Wednesday, he pitched 4 2/3 innings and allowed six hits, one walk and one earned run while striking out five. He's too risky to trust as a fantasy option right now, but he's certainly someone worth monitoring as he's one of the top pitching prospects in the Reds' organization.
Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Ryan Pepiot is being recalled from the minors in order to start on Tuesday against the Colorado Rockies instead of Mitch White. Pepiot has been pretty outstanding in his first three major league starts this year, allowing just four earned runs on six hits while striking out 13 and walking 11 in 11 1/3 innings. The 24-year-old will definitely need to cut down on giving out free passes, though, and his FIP of 5.41 shows he's been pretty fortunate so far in the big leagues. Tuesday's game in Los Angeles makes Pepiot a bit more attractive as a streamer, but there's a fair bit of risk involved if he continues to walk hitters.
Baltimore Orioles outfielder Austin Hays (wrist) is not in the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Texas Rangers and said he's day-to-day after being hit by a pitch on Monday. Hays' X-rays came back negative and there is no additional swelling. He swung the bat in the batting cage and just didn't feel right on Tuesday, but he might be available off the bench. The 27-year-old will start on the bench on his birthday, and hopefully he can pick it up sooner than later after going 2-for-24 (.083) with no home runs or RBI and four strikeouts in six games over the last week. Overall, however, he's been solid with a .271/.327/.459 slash line with 11 home runs, 45 RBI, 40 runs scored and one stolen base in 318 plate appearances over 76 games for the O's.
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (back) is throwing live batting practice at Fenway Park on Tuesday. Eovaldi went on the injured list with lower back inflammation on June 12, but he's made slow progress in his recovery. However, it's a good sign that he's progressed to facing live hitters after recently throwing two successful bullpen sessions. Given how long the 32-year-old right-hander has been out, it's likely that he'll need at least one minor league rehab start before he rejoins Boston's rotation. He needs to be stashed in all fantasy formats, as he had a 3.16 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 72 strikeouts and 10 walks in 68 1/3 innings over 12 starts before his injury.
Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts (thigh) is back at shortstop and is hitting cleanup on Tuesday against Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Jeffrey Springs. Bogaerts needed stitches to close a left thigh laceration that he suffered on Sunday, and he sat out on Monday in the series opener against Tampa. The 29-year-old should be returned to all starting fantasy lineups in single-year leagues, as he's hitting .318/.391/.456 on the year with an .847 OPS, six home runs, 31 RBI, 47 runs scored and three stolen bases in 322 plate appearances over 76 games played. He's cooled off a bit lately, though, going 8-for-36 (.222) with no homers or RBI in 10 games over the last two weeks.
Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Chris Archer has been scratched from his scheduled start on Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox for undisclosed reasons. Rookie Josh Winder will get the start instead, rain permitting. If the 33-year-old was scratched due to an injury, we'll pass it along once we know more. Archer has a solid 3.08 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 61 1/3 innings over 15 starts for the Twins this year, but his 4.89 FIP is concerning, on top of the fact that he's only struck out a career-low 17.9% of the batters he's faced while walking a career-high 11.5%. Winder also has a nice 3.06 ERA and 1.16 WHIP while striking out 24 and walking 10 in 35 1/3 innings over eight outings (four starts). The right-hander has allowed just three earned runs in 21 1/3 innings over his four starts, but he'll still be a shaky fantasy streamer on short notice.
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Didi Gregorius (knee) is out of the starting lineup again against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday. Gregorius is dealing with left knee soreness and hasn't played since July 1. Fantasy managers should continue to consider him day-to-day and remove him from daily lineups. The 32-year-old has played in only 41 games so far this year and is hitting .255/.316/.362 with no home runs, 12 RBI and 14 runs scored in 155 plate appearances. Bryson Stott will start at shortstop again on Tuesday and is hitting seventh against Nationals right-hander Paolo Espino. Stott is hitting just .185 on the season with four home runs and three stolen bases in 52 games, but he's gone 6-for-16 (.375) with two RBI and a steal in six games over the last week.
Detroit Tigers pitcher Drew Hutchison had his contract selected by the team on Tuesday. The veteran hurler is starting for the team on Tuesday against the Cleveland Guardians. He's made 12 appearances for Detroit this season, two of which were starts. Overall, he's pitched to a 4.81 ERA, a 4.76 FIP, 17 strikeouts, and 16 walks in 24.1 innings for the Tigers. Fantasy managers are probably best off looking elsewhere for streaming options. Detroit designated left-handed reliever Sam Howard for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Hutchison.
Miami Marlins infielder Jon Berti isn't starting on Tuesday for a matchup with the Los Angeles Angels and right-hander Noah Syndergaard. So far this season, Berti is batting .268 with a .363 on-base percentage, two home runs, and 25 stolen bases in 190 plate appearances. Joey Wendle is starting at second base and batting leadoff. Wendle is hitting .289 with a .352 on-base percentage, two home runs, and five stolen bases in 108 plate appearances this year. He's worth a look as a streaming option for fantasy managers on Tuesday.
