Matt Duffy (hamstring) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Thursday.

Duffy had what manager Kevin Cash called "a really good workday" on Tuesday and is scheduled to play in a simulated game Wednesday at the Rays' spring training complex in Port Charlotte. Assuming that goes smoothly, he will then appear in one or two minor league games, either at High-A Charlotte or Triple-A Durham. The 27-year-old third baseman should be ready to come off the disabled list sometime this weekend.

Todd Frazier (toe) went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored in his return to the Mets' lineup Tuesday.

Frazier suffered a minor bruise on his foot after getting spiked on Saturday, but he moved around just fine in Tuesday night's series opener against the Cardinals, a 10-inning win for the Mets. The 32-year-old third baseman is batting .261/.411/.464 with three homers, 14 RBI, and 14 runs scored through 21 games this season.

Michael Taylor went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's loss in San Francisco.

Taylor's three-run homer off of Ty Blach in the top of the fourth inning accounted for all of Washington's offense in an off night in Frisco. Despite the homer he is still slashing just .220/.289/.354, so consider him only in NL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed formats for his stolen base potential.

Tanner Roark allowed four earned runs, six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss at San Francisco on Tuesday.

Roark is now winless over his past four outings after winning his initial start of the 2018 season in Atlanta back on April 2. Walks and homers are to blame, as Roark has yielded five homers with 10 walks in 24 innings across the past four starts. He'll look to get back into the win column on Monday night in a favorable matchup against Chad Kuhl and the Pirates to kick off a two-start week.
Apr 25 - 3:12 AM

Joe Panik finished Tuesday's game against Washington with three singles over four at-bats while scoring twice.

Panik has posted a pair of three-hit games over his past three outings, raising his average from .254 to .286 just since April 21. He hasn't hit a home run since April 3 after showing an unusual display of power early in the season. That's not his game, but you can expect a solid average and a decent number of runs scored.
Apr 25 - 3:08 AM

Hunter Strickland worked a perfect ninth inning for his fifth save against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Strickland needed just eight pitches to breeze through the Washington top half of the ninth, lowering his ERA to 1.64. After a rough patch with back-to-back blown save opportunities he has righted the ship with three straight successful save chance conversions. He appears to be back on track and should stick as the San Francisco closer through the remainder of the season.
Apr 25 - 3:06 AM

Ty Blach allowed three earned runs, four hits and two walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Nationals.

Blach threw 47 of his 79 pitches for strikes in the no-decision, as the Opening Day starter has a 1-3 record and a 4.31 ERA with a 1.53 WHIP. He has managed just two quality starts over six outings this season, and he has dropped each of his past three decisions since winning his initial outing back on March 29. He'll look to bounce back Sunday against Kenta Maeda and the visiting Dodgers.
Apr 25 - 3:02 AM

Mac Williamson finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's victory against the Nationals.

Williamson tripped over the bullpen mound pursuing a fly ball in foul territory, taking a tumble and smacking his head into the wall. Even Bryce Harper, the batter, made a surprised face watching the play. Williamson checked out fine after being administered a concussion test in the dugout, and he came back strong with a homer in the sixth. He is making the most of his opportunity to play and is worth using in most fantasy leagues and DFS while running hot.
Apr 25 - 2:59 AM

Yasiel Puig took the collar in Tuesday's game against the Marlins to drop his season average to .195.

Puig looked to be finally awakening from his slumber with a modest four-game hitting streak from April 17-21, but he is back in a nosedive going 0-for-10 across his past three outings. He isn't exactly bringing his best to the table in his 27-year-old season, as he is below the Mendoza line in batting average and he has yet to smack his first homer of the season. He is a fantasy liability at the moment, although he isn't a bad buy-low candidate if you can afford the roster spot. Puig will come around.
Apr 25 - 2:56 AM

Kenta Maeda allowed one earned run, four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Marlins.

Maeda did his part against the Marlins, throwing 55 of his 82 pitches for strikes. However, L.A.'s offense was unable to get to left-hander Dillon Peters on the other side. It was a surprising result, as the Dodgers had posted a 16-5 record across Maeda's past 21 starts, including 7-2 in his past nine against National League East foes. He'll look to get back into the win column Sunday in San Francisco.
Apr 25 - 2:27 AM

Cameron Maybin went 2-for-4 with a game-winning RBI in Tuesday's road victory against the Dodgers.

Maybin helped the Marlins snap a five-game skid, getting to the beleaguered Los Angeles bullpen. Despite the late-inning heroics he is still hitting just .238, and Tuesday represented just his third multi-hit performance of the season. As such he remains useful only in deeper NL fantasy play at the moment.
Apr 25 - 2:23 AM

Brad Ziegler needed just eight pitches in a perfect ninth inning for his second save of the season Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Ziegler has had some trouble in non-save situations, and the struggling Marlins just haven't give him very many chances to nail down saves. He has converted each of his save chances this season, but this was his first since April 8. Ziegler is the team's closer, but he is nailing down saves for a bad team and his production will be sporadic at best.
Apr 25 - 2:13 AM

Dillon Peters allowed just one earned run, four hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision on the road Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Peters did a good job giving his team a chance to win, throwing 57 of his 96 pitches for strikes. It was a surprising result, as the Marlins ended up winning to snap a five-game skid in the series against L.A. They were also just 1-4 in their past five trips to Dodger Stadium. The southpaw will take the ball next on May 1 against Ben Lively and the Phillies at Marlins Park.
Apr 25 - 2:11 AM

Noel Cuevas posted a pair of singles with a run scored over four at-bats in Tuesday's 8-0 victory against the Padres.

The hits were the first of his career, as he was hitless in his first four at-bats after making his major league debut on Sunday against the Cubs. Cuevas has the ability to play all three outfield positions so he could stick around if he continues to hit. However, he is only worth a look in the deepest of NL fantasy formats at this juncture.
Apr 25 - 2:05 AM

Trevor Story had just one hit over his three at-bats in Tuesday's game against San Diego but it was good for a grand slam, his sixth homer of the season.

Story took rookie Eric Lauer deep in his major league debut on a 1-1 pitch middle in and deposited it into the seats in left-center field a few rows in as he sat dead-red on a fastball. The shortstop is second behind Charlie Blackmon (8) for the team lead in homers, and he leads the team in RBI (18). He is rolling right along and providing nice numbers across the board.
