Michael Cuddyer (hamstring) expects to return Friday.

Cuddyer is out of the Rockies' starting lineup again on Wednesday due to hamstring soreness, but it's not a major injury. The Rockies are off on Thursday and then begin a three-game series with the Marlins on Friday night.

Tigers signed No. 1 overall pick RHP Casey Mize.

The Tigers were set to make it official with a press conference Monday. According to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press, Mize will receive a $7.5 million bonus. While that's a new record under the current bonus pool rules, the deal is still $596,300 under the slot value for the pick. That means the Tigers can use that savings with some of their other picks, if they so choose. As for Mize, he was the easy choice for the No. 1 pick and immediately becomes the top prospect in Detroit's system. The ingredients for a frontline starter are here and he could make it to the majors rather quickly.

Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's lineup against the Angels.

It sounds like a routine day of rest. Alcides Escobar is slated to make his first ever start at third base.

Gary Sanchez (groin) will be placed on the disabled list.

The Yankees have yet to make an official announcement, but Jon Morosi of MLB Network hears that Kyle Higashioka will replace Sanchez on the active roster. Sanchez left Sunday's game with a groin injury, but we should know more about the severity following MRI results.

Athletics designated RHP Liam Hendriks for assignment.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Hendriks has missed time this season with a groin injury while struggling with a 7.36 ERA over 13 appearances. He's still owed about half of his $1.9 million salary for this season, but he could draw some interest via waivers or trade. He still has one year of team control remaining, as well.

Daniel Murphy delivered a go-ahead two-run single with two outs in the eighth inning on Sunday night, leading the Nationals to an 8-6 victory over the Phillies.

Phillies' closer Seranthony Dominguez intentionally walked rookie Juan Soto to load the bases in order to face Murphy in the eighth inning with the Nationals trailing by a run. He fell behind in the count 1-2, but was able to then serve a two-run single into left field to give the Nationals their first lead of the night. Murphy finished the night 3-for-4 (all singles) and also drew a walk, raising his season slash to .195/.233/.220 through his first 43 plate appearances.

Derek Dietrich had a big game Sunday in Colorado, finishing 4-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI.

Dietrich will wish the Marlins could stay in the rarefied air of Denver a little longer, as he had a homer in each of the three games against the Rockies. He wrapped up the three-game set going 8-for-13 with two doubles, three homers and four RBI. The Fish return home to open a three-game set with the Diamondbacks on Monday night. He is hitting just .277 with four homers and 14 RBI across 119 at-bats at Marlins Park, while posting a .322 average with seven homers and 15 RBI over 143 road at-bats.

Alex Bregman went hitless in four at-bats with a walk, a run scored and an RBI Sunday against the Royals, and he was trying everything to snap out of his funk.

Bregman also had a throwing error in the game, and was so determined to change his luck that he shaved in the middle of the 11-3 victory. Despite taking the collar at the plate, the Astros had more than enough offensive support for Gerrit Cole and the rest of the pitching staff. He is mired in a 4-for-24 (.167) slide with six strikeouts and just two extra-base hits, but he remains a solid fantasy option across the board.

Caleb Smith was removed from Sunday's start against the Rockies due to left shoulder tightness.

Initially, it was believed that Smith had sustained a groin injury, but it's his pitching shoulder instead that ails him. It's not yet clear if it's severe enough to cause him to miss his next start, but fantasy owners should have a contingency plan ready in case he is unable to start next week.

Giancarlo Stanton went 5-for-5 with a homer and two doubles in a loss to the Rays in extras on Sunday.

He also drew a walk, so we saw the slugger on base six times in the extra-inning loss. Stanton's blast was a big one, as it was a solo shot that tied the game at 6-6 in the eighth inning off of Vidal Nuno. He now has 19 homers on the season, and the two doubles give him 15, respectively. It's not the MVP season we saw in 2017, but Stanton now has his OPS up to .852 over 74 games, and there's reason to believe that number will continue to go up as the year progresses.
Jun 24 - 5:46 PM

Jake Bauers went 2-for-6 and hit a walk-off homer in the 12th inning on Sunday in a 7-6 victory over the Yankees.

His other hit was his first big-league triple. The solo homer off of Chasen Shreve give Bauers two on the season, with this one giving the Rays the win and a surprising series sweep. Since being called up on June 7, the rookie has hit a pedestrian .254, but he's shown his strong approach with a .389 on-base percentage and .525 slugging percentage over 59 plate appearances. As long as he gets everyday playing time -- and he should -- there should be some fantasy value here.
Jun 24 - 5:40 PM

Carlos Rodon threw eight innings and allowed two runs in a 10-3 victory over the Athletics on Sunday.

Rodon allowed seven hits over those eight innings, and he didn't walk anyone while striking out three. It's the first win of the season for the southpaw, and the eight strong innings lowers his ERA to 3.70. Expect to see the left-hander to miss more bats as he builds up his arm strength, but it's nice to see him firing strikes early on. Rodon will toe the rubber again on Saturday against the Rangers.
