Brandon Nimmo connected for his first major league homer in a 10-2 win over the Cubs on Friday.

According to StatCast, Nimmo’s fourth-inning blast traveled 442 feet, which is the longest home run by a Mets player this season. The 23-year-old went 2-for-3 on the night and is batting .280 (7-for-25) through his first six games in the majors. He’s bringing some energy out of the leadoff spot for New York and could be worth a try in deeper mixed leagues for however long he stays there.

Kris Bryant slugged a solo homer and drew a walk in Friday’s defeat to the Mets.

After going deep in back-to-back games, Bryant now leads the National League with 23 home runs across 77 games this season. Keep in mind that the 24-year-old had 26 homers in 151 games as a rookie. He’s set to obliterate that total in 2016.

Jose Fernandez played hero Friday by smacking a go-ahead, pinch-hit two-run double in the 12th inning as part of a 7-5 win over the Braves.

Never doubt the Marlins’ ace. Fernandez was asked to pinch-hit with two on and two out against Casey Kelly and he delivered by ripping a ball into the gap in left-center field. After doing damage with his bat on Friday, Fernandez will try to do his part on the mound Saturday.

Rays manager Kevin Cash announced Friday that Steven Souza (hip) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Taylor Motter has been optioned to Triple-A to create a spot on the roster. The Rays are in desperate need for help on offense, which Souza should provide. Before landing on the shelf with his hip injury, Souza was hitting .255/.315/.443 with 10 homers and 25 RBI.

Ian Desmond clobbered a game-winning home run in the 10th inning on Friday, propelling the Rangers to a 3-2 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

The gargantuan shot off of Fernando Abad was his 15th long ball of the season. Desmond also singled and doubled in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-5. He has been one of the best hitters in the American League this season, slashing .323/.376/.535 with 15 homers, 52 RBI and 14 stolen bases.

Jaime Garcia spun eight innings of one-run ball in Friday’s win over the Brewers.

It was quite a night for Garcia. His only mistake was a solo homer by Chris Carter in the second inning. Garcia walked four, but gave up just four hits and struck out six batters. He induced 15 swinging strikes and 16 ground balls in the victory. He also drove in a run with a single. This was his longest outing since his one-hit shutout against this same Brewers team on April 14. Garcia will bring a 3.84 ERA into a start against the Pirates next week at home.

Victor Martinez belted a pair of three-run homers on Friday, powering the Tigers in a 10-2 rout over the Rays in Tampa Bay.

Martinez started the game slowly, as he was 0-for-3 heading into the seventh inning, before he greeted Danny Farquhar with a three-run bomb to increase the Tigers' advantage to 10-7. He wasn't finished though, adding another three-run shot in the ninth to cap off the monster day. He has been a monster at the dish this year, slashing .324/.369/.543 with 16 homers and 49 RBI.

Michael Fulmer returned to the Tigers starting rotation with authority on Friday, racking up 10 strikeouts over seven shutout innings in a victory over the Rays.

The rookie right-hander allowed just two singles and a walk in the ballgame. He has been nothing short of outstanding for the Tigers this season, registering an 8-2 record, 2.17 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 70/25 K/BB ratio over 70 2/3 innings. He'll look to further his case for American League Rookie of the Year honors when he squares off against the red-hot Indians in Cleveland on Wednesday.
Jul 1 - 10:18 PM

Odubel Herrera had all of his tools on full display in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Royals, going 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and a stolen base.

Hererra started the game with a bang, blasting a leadoff home run off of Ian Kennedy. He later singled, swiped a base and scored his second run of the contest. The Phillies' leadoff man is having a terrific season at the dish, slashing .306/.396/.439 with nine homers, 30 RBI and 12 stolen bases.
Jul 1 - 10:17 PM

Denard Span was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Friday due to a stiff neck.

Gregor Blanco will replace him and bat leadoff against Shelby Miller and the Diamondbacks. Consider Span day-to-day.
Jul 1 - 9:06 PM

Padres manager Andy Green said Friday that Brandon Maurer will get the "first crack" at the ninth inning after dealing Fernando Rodney away on Thursday.

He isn't locked in as the official closer yet, but will have a chance to stake his claim to the role with a few successful conversions. Many had assumed that Ryan Buchter, who had functioned as the primary setup man for Rodney, would get the first shot at the ninth inning, but it looks as though Green is more comfortable keeping the southpaw in the eighth inning. Maurer is worthy of an add in all formats until he proves otherwise.
