David Wright will not participate in baseball activity for eight weeks due to continued issues with his shoulder and lower back.

More bad news for Wright, who hasn't appeared in a major league game since May 27, 2016. The 35-year-old hasn't given up hope of continuing his career, though the odds are very long at this point. Wright is still owed $20 million in 2018, $15 million in 2019, and $12 million in 2020. The Mets hold an insurance policy which covers 75 percent of his salary if he can't play.

Nick Senzel will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right index finger.

Ouch, this is a tough one to take. The Reds' top prospect battled through a vertigo issue early in the season and had just started to rake at Triple-A Louisville when he suffered the injury on Friday night. He finishes his age-22 season slashing .310/.378/.509 with six homers, 25 RBI and eight stolen bases in 44 games. He could be recovered in time to participate in the Arizona Fall League or in winter ball.

Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Friday's 11-3 rout of the Marlins.

Arenado is on a power tear against the dregs of the National League East, belting a homer in each of his past four outings while piling up 11 RBI during the impressive stretch. He is averaging two RBI across his past eight contests, too. He'll look for a homer in a fifth straight outing against RHP Trevor Richards on Saturday afternoon. He is hitting .341 (28-for-82) with four doubles, five homers and 18 RBI in day games this season.

Manny Machado slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in the 15th inning as the Orioles defeated the Braves 10-7 on Friday.

It was a wild night in Atlanta, but Machado’s blast off Peter Moylan finally put the Orioles ahead for good. Machado went 2-for-5 on the night with two walks, two runs scored, and a stolen base. He’s been pretty quiet this month, but he still owns a quality .305/.374/.561 batting line with 19 homers and 55 RBI over 73 games. The trade chatter should continue to build in the coming days.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said after Friday's game that Arodys Vizcaino was unavailable due to a sore shoulder.

Vizcaino hasn't pitched since June 17, so it was a little strange to see Dan Winkler come out for a save chance on Friday. Winkler blew the save and the Orioles eventually won the game in 15 innings. Snitker mentioned that he's hopeful Vizcaino will be ready to return on Saturday, but that's not a sure thing.

Shin-Soo Choo finished 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, a walk, two runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 8-1 win at Minnesota.

Choo has hit safely in six straight, going 9-for-24 (.375) with a double, two homers and five RBI during the impressive span, raising his average from .271 to .280 since June 15. Choo was able to extend his on-base streak to 35 consecutive games with the two-run shot in the fifth inning off of reliever Fernando Romero.

Jack Flaherty allowed one earned run, one hit and two walks over seven innings Friday at Milwaukee while matching a career best with 13 strikeouts.

The stat line was outstanding, but he and his fantasy owners had to settle for a no-decision since Junior Guerra and the Brewers bullpen matched him. It was an impressive showing considering Flaherty threw first-pitch strikes to just 13 of the 25 batters he faced. He'll look to get back into the win column on Wednesday against Shane Bieber and the visiting Cleveland Indians.

Patrick Corbin struck out 12 batters over seven scoreless frames against the Pirates on Friday, but was forced to settle for a no-decision.

The 12 strikeouts matched a career-high. Corbin allowed just three hits (all of them singles) and didn’t walk a batter. He racked up 25 swinging strikes in his 102 pitches, most of them coming on his slider. Corbin’s season has been moving in the wrong direction for a while now, so this was nice to see. Fantasy owners will have to hope that he can keep it going in a favorable matchup against the Marlins next week.
Jun 23 - 12:24 AM

Shane Bieber was dominant in Friday's victory over the Tigers, racking up a career-high nine strikeouts over seven shutout innings.

Bieber allowed just four hits and one walk over his seven brilliant frames. Through his first three starts, he now boasts a 2.45 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 22/3 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 innings. It's probably time to start taking him seriously from a mixed league perspective. He'll do battle against the Cardinals his next time out in St. Louis on Wednesday.

J.D. Martinez knocked in five runs while going 4-for-5 with a homer and three runs scored in Friday’s wild 14-10 win over the Mariners.

Martinez got the Red Sox on the board with an RBI double in the bottom of the first inning before slugging a two-run shot in the fourth. He knocked in two more runs with a single in the seventh. He’s now at 60 RBI, three more than anyone else (Eugenio Suarez with the Reds) and he’s tied with Mike Trout for the MLB-lead with 23 homers. Oh, and he’s also batting .324/.393/.644 on the year. He’s been just about everything the Red Sox could have hoped for and then some.

Nelson Cruz went 4-for-5 with two homers and seven RBI as the Mariners fell to the Red Sox on Friday.

Cruz connected for a pair of three-run homers (in the first and fourth innings) and also drove in a run with a single in the second. According to Rotoworld’s Matthew Pouliot, Cruz is the first player since J.P. Arencibia (July 29, 2014) to drive in seven runs in a game his team lost. The veteran slugger has hit safely in six straight games and now finds himself tied for fourth in the majors with 20 homers.
Jun 22 - 11:45 PM

Odubel Herrera had four hits and scored four runs while homering in his fifth straight game Friday against the Nationals.

Now that's a monster day. Herrera kept the streak alive with a two-run blast against Tanner Roark in the third inning. His other three hits fell for singles. The power is understandably getting most of the attention, but Herrera is also piling up the hits in general. He’s hitting .472 (17-for-36) over his last eight games. His batting average has soared from .283 to .308 during that time.
