Jung Ho Kang had an RBI single and a stolen base against the Mets on Friday.
Kang has hit safely in five straight games and owns a .310/.372/.440 batting line with two home runs, 11 RBI, and three stolen bases through 29 games. He has pushed the struggling Jordy Mercer to the bench in recent days and deserves to be owned in more fantasy leagues right now.
Chris Stewart went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Friday's win over the Mets.
A nice night for Stewart, who also threw out two would-be base stealers. The 33-year-old is batting .267/.277/.333 through 15 games as Francisco Cervelli's backup.
Eric Campbell went 0-for-2 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch in Friday's loss to the Pirates.
Campbell hit safely in each of his first three games after returning from the minors, but he's 0-for-14 over his past four games. David Wright (hamstring) is likely at least a week away from returning, but Mets manager Terry Collins should at least consider keeping Campbell near the bottom of the order until he does.
Sean O'Sullivan delivered a quality start in Friday's loss to the Nationals, surrendering just two runs on five hits over his six innings of work.
O'Sullivan punched out three on the night while walking one. He allowed a solo homer to Bryce Harper in the second inning and an RBI double to Ian Desmond in the sixth, but that was the extent of the damage. The right-hander will carry an impressive 3.54 ERA and 1.14 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Mets in New York and could be worth a look as a streaming option in mixed leagues.
Hanley Ramirez was removed from Friday's game against the Angels due to soreness in his left hand.
Ramirez was drilled by a pitch there earlier in the ballgame. The fact that the score was 11-3 at the time may have also played a role in his early departure. He should be considered day-to-day.
Hyun-Jin Ryu admitted Friday that he has known about the tear in his labrum since he underwent an MRI two years ago.
The fact that he was able to pitch through the injury for as long as he did, and at the level of effectiveness, is a minor miracle. He underwent season-ending surgery on Thursday to correct the issue and should be ready to go for spring training next season barring any setbacks.
Wily Peralta was removed from Friday's start against the Braves after just four innings due to tightness in his left side.
He departed with a 10-0 lead, so to not stick around for another inning to earn the victory, so the team was clearly concerned about the issue. The Brewers should have an update on his status and potential timetable for his return shortly.
Matt Cain (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session on Friday, mixing in offspeed pitches with fastballs.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy came away from the session encouraged. As long as he doesn't experience any unusual soreness on Saturday, he'll proceed to the next stage of his rehab which will be facing live hitters for the first time on Tuesday. While he's finally making tangible progress, he still isn't expected to return to the Giants before July.
