Alec Mills Chicago Cubs

Alec Mills (P) CHI-N - Jun. 20

Mills (3-1) allowed six hits and struck out three across five scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday versus Miami.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Mills turned in an excellent start, as all six hits he allowed were singles. The right-hander has filled a versatile role in his 15 appearances (three starts) in 2021.

Wander Franco Tampa Bay Rays

Wander Franco (SS) TB - Jun. 20

Franco has been told by the Rays that he'll be called up ahead of Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Franco cemented his status as baseball's top prospect with Triple-A Durham to begin the season, as he slashed .323/.376/.601 with seven home runs, 35 RBI, 30 runs and five stolen bases in 38 games. While Taylor Walls had been serving as the Rays' shortstop after Willy Adames was traded, Franco should see regular playing time in the infield right away.

John Brebbia San Francisco Giants

John Brebbia (P) SF - Jun. 20

Brebbia (elbow) pitched a perfect inning with one strikeout in Sunday's 11-2 win over Philadelphia.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Now recovered from his June 2020 Tommy John surgery, Brebbia was able to make his San Francisco debut. He did well in the final inning of a blowout win. The right-hander last pitched in the majors in 2019, when he had a 3.59 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 87:27 K:BB and 12 holds across 72.2 innings with St. Louis. He'll likely be eased back into action with low-leverage assignments at first, but he could become a key piece of San Francisco's bullpen in the second half of the season.

Ketel Marte Arizona Diamondbacks

His third hit of the game brings the D'backs to within one of the Dodgers in the 8th inning after starting the inning down 9-2, and still the team goes down to its 17th straight defeat. In his last 17 games Ketel is slashing .364/.417/.530.
