Drew Smyly will start Friday against the Angels.

Smyly has been limited to bullpen appearances so far due to off-days and rain postponements. The 24-year-old left-hander owns a 3.18 career ERA and 1.15 career WHIP in the majors, and remains an exciting fantasy sleeper.

George Springer is batting second in his major league debut on Wednesday night against the Royals.

Houston will throw the ultra-talented young outfielder right into the fire. Springer was batting .353/.459/.647 with three home runs in 13 games this year at Triple-A Oklahoma City and is a must-have in all standard fantasy leagues. The 24-year-old compiled a .959 OPS, 65 homers, 85 steals, and 207 RBI in 284 minor league games.

Wily Peralta held the Cardinals to one run over 6 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 5-1 Brewers win.

The dominant performance pushed Milwaukee to an 11-4 record and a two-game lead over the Cardinals in the National League Central standings. Peralta had his sinker and slider working, fanning three batters and scattering six hits over his 6 1/3 frames. He issued just one walk. The 24-year-old right-hander will bring a 2-0 record and 1.96 ERA into his next start at home against the Padres. That's a juicy fantasy matchup.

Aramis Ramirez finished 3-for-4 with an RBI in the Brewers' win over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

A-Ram's big day helped the Brewers avoid a three-game sweep and remain atop the National League Central standings with an 11-4 record. The veteran third baseman is off to a scorching start this season, batting .377 with a .905 OPS and 13 RBI in 15 games played.
Apr 16 - 4:16 PM

Allen Craig hit his first home run of the season in the Cardinals' loss to the Brewers on Wednesday.

It gave the Cardinals their only run of the afternoon. Craig began the season in a bad funk, but he's making better contact lately and should soon begin racking up RBI with great regularity in a loaded St. Louis lineup.

Mike Napoli (finger) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday night against the White Sox.

Napoli suffered a dislocated left ring finger Tuesday after jamming his hand against the second base bag on a head-first slide. He's expected to avoid the disabled list but may need a few more days off. Daniel Nava is starting at first base Wednesday in Chicago.
Apr 16 - 4:10 PM

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday against the White Sox.

Pedroia will lead off and play second base in the second game of a three-game set at U.S. Cellular Field. He was diagnosed Monday with inflammation in his left wrist and given a cortisone shot to help him through the discomfort.
Apr 16 - 4:06 PM

Masahiro Tanaka shut out the Cubs for eight innings as the Yankees grabbed a 3-0 win in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Tanaka was scheduled to pitch on Tuesday but the game was called because of rain. He looked well-rested on Wednesday afternoon, yielding just two hits and one walk over his eight shutout frames while racking up 10 strikeouts. It was Tanaka's most dominant start so far in the major leagues, and he'll carry an outstanding 2-0 record, 2.05 ERA, and 0.77 WHIP into his next scheduled outing against the Rays.
