Michael Taylor went 1-for-4 with an RBI double, a run scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Phillies.

Taylor currently leads the majors with 22 steals. He’s already established a new career-high, topping his 17 steals from last year. The 27-year-old has produced a mediocre .243/.307/.396 batting line on the year, but he’s been excellent over the past month. Unfortunately, he’s found himself the odd man out in recent days with the Nationals trying to keep young sensation Juan Soto in the lineup.

Matt Olson went 2-for-4 and swatted his 16th home run of the season as the Athletics dropped the nightcap of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Olson got the Athletics on the board in the first inning with an RBI single, then smashed a solo homer in the sixth that pulled them to within a run at 3-2. With the two-hit attack, he's now slashing .240/.320/.458 with 16 long balls and 39 RBI.

Chris Bassitt was hit hard as the Athletics dropped the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Bassitt allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits over his 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander struck out four while issuing only one free pass. The White Sox pushed three runs across in the second inning, then Bassitt settled in and didn't allow them to score again until the sixth. Even with this rough outing, he still owns a respectable 3.86 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season. He makes for an interesting streaming option for Wednesday's start against the Tigers in Detroit.

Willy Adames went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Friday’s 2-1 victory over the Yankees.

Adames got the Rays on the board in the fourth inning before C.J. Cron added a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning for what proved to be some valuable insurance. The Rays appear committed to giving Adames an extended opportunity at shortstop, but he’s struggled to make consistent contact so far. He’s batting .208 with 21 strikeouts through 48 at-bats. This was his first multi-hit game since June 12.
Jun 22 - 10:51 PM

Ryan Yarbrough improved to 6-3 on the year after tossing 3 1/3 scoreless innings against the Yankees on Friday.

Yarbrough took over after Ryne Stanek tossed a scoreless first inning. He held the Yankees to just one hit while walking three and striking out four. This was his first scoreless outing since way back on May 4. He’s fanned 67 batters in 71 2/3 innings this season while posting a 4.02 ERA. With his inconsistency and unconventional role, there’s just not much to get excited about here in standard mixed leagues.
Jun 22 - 10:50 PM

CC Sabathia gave up two runs (one earned) over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Rays on Friday.

It could have been worse, as Sabathia escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first inning. He went on to give up runs in the fourth and fifth innings. The veteran southpaw fanned four and walked one in the loss. He’s now 4-3 with a 3.18 ERA through 14 starts this season. Up next is an interleague start against the Phillies on the road.

Sergio Romo tossed a scoreless ninth inning against the Yankees on Friday for his fifth save of the season.

Asked to hold a one-run lead, Romo gave up a leadoff single to Miguel Andujar, though he was eventually erased on a game-ending double play grounder. The veteran reliever has been used in the last five save situations for the Rays while converting four of them. He’s the name to pick up in fantasy leagues for those desperate for saves. Though this could change, Romo hasn’t "started" a game since June 1.
Jun 22 - 10:49 PM

Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 in Friday’s win over the Yankees.

All three hits were singles. Ramos has been one of the most productive catchers in the game during the first half, batting .296/.344/.452 with nine homers and 36 RBI through 61 games. He’s going to be a valuable trade chip over the next month.
