MLB Recent Player News
|5/24/2018||Matt Davidson, CWS, 3B|
|Davidson is dealing with a stiff back and is out of the White Sox's lineup for a second straight day Thursday.
Analysis: Davidson was a late scratch from Wednesday's game, though it's believed he's dealing with nothing more than a day-to-day issue. The 27-year-old has been one of the bright spots during the White Sox's rough season, leading the team with 11 homers and 28 RBIs to go along with an .890 OPS.
|5/24/2018||Shohei Ohtani, LAA, P|
|The Angels announced they will push back the next pitching start for Ohtani, who had been scheduled to face fellow Japanese star Masahiro Tanaka in Yankee Stadium on Sunday.
Analysis: Angels manager Mike Scioscia did say Ohtani would be available to hit in Sunday's game, which suggests he won't take the mound again until at least Tuesday. The two-way sensation did throw a season-high 110 pitches while holding the Rays to two runs over 7 2/3 innings last Sunday to win his most recent outing.
|5/24/2018||Leury García, CWS, CF|
|Garcia has been placed on the disabled list with a left knee sprain he sustained in Wednesday's game against the Orioles.
Analysis: The utility player will be further evaluated Thursday to determine the severity of the injury. Garcia has been a solid source of steals with nine in 39 games but doesn't offer a whole lot more from a fantasy perspective. Charlie Tilson, who stole 46 bases in Double A in 2015, was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move and may get an extended look in center field while Garcia recovers.
|5/24/2018||Welington Castillo, CWS, C|
|Castillo has been suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball for violating its Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. The catcher tested positive for the banned substance Erythropoietin (EPO).
Analysis: Castillo won't be eligible to return until late August and forfeits nearly half of his $7.25 million salary, though his loss will probably be felt more by fantasy owners than by the rebuilding White Sox. Omar Narvaez, who hit .277 but with little power in 90 games last season, likely takes over as Chicago's regular catcher.
|5/24/2018||Francisco Cervelli, Pit, C|
|Cervelli isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Reds after taking a ball off his right hand while blocking a pitch in the dirt Wednesday night.
Analysis: Cervelli is enjoying a stellar season, leading all catchers in OPS (.931), while ranking second in homers (8) and third in both RBIs (27) and walks (20), so hopefully this is just a minor setback.
|5/24/2018||Mitch Haniger, Sea, LF|
|Haniger, who was hit by a pitch on his right forearm on Tuesday, was given a day off on Wednesday.
Analysis: He also could sit out Thursday's series finale, manager Scott Servais said.
