That's what MLB now shows, and it's crazy. Win for Peralta. For teams using Onroto, it still shows Holmes w the win, Peralta a save. Hope that's the final decision. I own Holmes.

A strong season just got even stronger for Yosinobu Yamamoto. With the weekend no-hitter, he lowered his ERA to 1.55 on the season. He is looking at a posting for the 2024 season and I hope his wish is granted. https://twitter.com/JCoskrey/status/1538066110566002690

Aaron Hicks New York Yankees

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Gerrit Cole made a run at history on Monday — and then the Yankees got a huge hit from Aaron Hicks and a gutsy performance from Wandy Peralta to hold on and beat the Rays, 4-2. 

After Cole took a no-hitter into the eighth inning, the Yankees gave back a two-run lead, but Hicks — in the midst of a rough season — delivered an RBI triple in the top of the ninth for the go-ahead run.

Tyrone Taylor Milwaukee Brewers
Provides offense in win
June 20, 2022
Taylor went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Monday's 2-0 win over the Cardinals.
ANALYSIS
Taylor took Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas deep in the fifth inning, and that homer was all the run support Corbin Burnes needed. In his last nine games, Taylor has gone 7-for-30 (.233), but he's hit safely in six of those contests. The 28-year-old is poised for a regular role in center field with Lorenzo Cain designated for assignment over the weekend. Taylor is slashing .227/.273/.420 with seven homers, 27 RBI, 17 runs scored, a stolen base, 12 doubles and a triple in 194 plate appearances.

Taylor Ward Los Angeles Angels
Productive again Monday
June 20, 2022
Ward went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Royals.
ANALYSIS
Ward accounted for the Angels' two runs in the game, hitting a solo shot in the third inning and an RBI single in the fifth. He was the only Angels batter to record multiple hits in the contest, his third such effort in his last eight games. The 28-year-old is up to a .313/.406/.578 slash line with 11 homers, 28 RBI, 35 runs scored and a stolen base across 192 plate appearances.

Andrew Velazquez New York Yankees
Logs 10th steal
June 20, 2022
Velazquez went 1-for-2 with a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Royals.
ANALYSIS
Velazquez has logged two steals in his last three games, though he's also struck out five times in that span. The shortstop is up to 10 thefts this season, and he's yet to get caught stealing. He's posted a lackluster .175/.219/.273 slash line with four home runs, 17 RBI, 19 runs scored and six doubles across 197 plate appearances, and it's expected he could see a challenge for playing time from utility man Tyler Wade going forward.

Travis d'Arnaud Atlanta Braves

Rotowire:

Posts another homer Monday
June 21, 2022
D'Arnaud went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday in a 2-1 win against San Francisco.
ANALYSIS
D'Arnaud got the Braves on the board with his second-inning solo shot off Logan Webb. The long ball was his second in as many games and fourth across his past five contests. Over the productive stretch, d'Arnaud is slashing .286/.318/.857 with four homers, eight RBI and six runs.

Jesus Sanchez Miami Marlins

Rotoworld:

06.20: Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Monday that Jesús Aguilar (COVID-19) and Jesús Sánchez (COVID-19) are "feeling better." (Good
news. Mattingly added that the tandem, who landed on the COVID-19
injured list last Friday, have been able to work out the past two days
and need to get their strength back before returning to the Marlins'
lineup. Aguilar and Sánchez will get in full workouts on Tuesday and
could return at some point later this week.)

Javier Baez Detroit Tigers

Rotoworld:

06.20: Javier Baez doubled twice against the Red Sox on Monday. (It's just the second time this year that he's collected multiple extra-base
hits.)

Dominic Smith New York Mets

Dominic Smith (OF) NY-N - Jun. 20
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=12950

Smith was recalled by the Mets on Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Smith has hit a respectable .266/.347/.438 in 15 games since being demoted to Triple-A Syracuse at the end of May, though his return may be less about his own numbers and more about the fact that teams are limited to 13 pitchers for the rest of the season.

Josh Lowe Tampa Bay Rays

0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout last night. Rays had three hits and struck out 14 time against Gerrit Cole and two relievers.

Josh Lowe (OF) TB - Jun. 20
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=14246

The Rays recalled Lowe from Triple-A Durham on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: With Tampa Bay needing to pare down its pitching staff to 13 men ahead of Monday's MLB-imposed deadline, reliever Luke Bard will cede his spot on the 26-man active roster to Lowe. After breaking camp with the big club as a starting outfielder, Lowe was sent to Triple-A just three weeks later when he slashed .181/.250/.325 with a 38 percent strikeout rate over 71 plate appearances at Tampa Bay. The 24-year-old has since righted the ship at Triple-A with a .929 OPS at Durham, but he's still struck out in 31.2 percent of his 157 plate appearances. In spite of his high pedigree as a prospect, Lowe may still have to initially settle for fourth-outfielder duties behind Manuel Margot, Randy Arozarena and Kevin Kiermaier as he rejoins the big club.

Luke Bard Los Angeles Angels

Luke Bard (P) TB - Jun. 20
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=11970

The Rays optioned Bard to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Bard finds himself as the odd man out for the Rays, who needed to reduce their pitching staff to the MLB-mandated 13 men prior to Monday's game against the Yankees. Outfielder Josh Lowe was added to the active roster as a replacement for Bard, who struck out five over six scoreless frames across his four relief appearances with Tampa Bay following his June 7 call-up from Triple-A.

C.J. Abrams San Diego Padres

CJ Abrams (SS) SD - Jun. 20
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=16042

Abrams was recalled by the Padres on Monday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Abrams joined the Opening Day roster straight from Double-A this season but looked overmatched. He was demoted a little over a month into the season after struggling to a .182/.270/.273 line in 20 games. He's fared far better in his first taste of Triple-A action, hitting .314/.365/.507 in 30 games for Triple-A El Paso. Depending on the severity of Manny Machado's ankle sprain, Abrams could be in line to start regularly going forward, with Ha-Seong Kim sliding to cover third base, leaving Abrams as the primary option at shortstop.

Clay Holmes New York Yankees

So did Holmes get the Win last night or not? He came on in the bottom of the 8th with the Yanks ahead 2-0, allowing Cole's runner to score and then 1 of his own to score to tie it up at 2. Holmes pitched 2/3 of an inning, 1ER allowed. The Yankees got 2 in the top of the 9th to go up 4-2 and then Peralta closed it out with a scoreless 9th. 

You would think that's a Win for Holmes and a Save for Peralta, but I'm seeing just a Win for Peralta. Was the official scorer that upset that Holmes blew Cole's Win? Relievers blow saves all the time and still get the Win...not sure what's going on here. 

Scott Shea SJS
Tyler O'Neill St. Louis Cardinals

Rotoworld:

06.20: Cardinals placed OF Tyler O'Neill on the 10-day injured list witha left hamstring strain. (O'Neill tweaked his hamstring during the ninth inning of Sunday's game and is headed back to the IL just a couple weeks after returning from it. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be out. O'Neill had hit .354/.385/.521 in 13 games since being activated, so the timing is a bummer especially with the Cards set to begin a series versus the Brewers.)
