Rich Hill Boston Red Sox


06.16: Rich Hill was charged with four runs -- three earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the A's. (All
of the runs should have been unearned, but Trevor Story's misplayed
popup that opened the door for a three-run third inning was ruled a
double. The final run came after he left with a man on first and two
outs in the sixth and was unearned as the result of a Rafael Devers
error. Hill walked none and struck out four. He's not going deep into
games at all, but he's pitched better than his 4.42 ERA suggests.)

Oscar Gonzalez Cleveland Guardians


06.16: Oscar Gonzalez went 0-for-4 and struck out three times versus the Rockies on Thursday. (Gonzalez picked a disappointing time to cool off, finishing 1-for-12 in the series at Coors Field. His OPS has dropped from .993 on Saturday to .815
now. With Franmil Reyes due back soon, Gonzalez will be looking at a
reduced role unless he turns it around fast.)

Shogo Akiyama San Diego Padres

Update: The Chihuahuas made a pair of roster moves before the start of Thursday’s game. The Padres organization released big league veterans in outfielder Shogo Akiyama and left-handed reliever Ian Krol. It is expected that Akiyama will return to his native Japan. The 34-year-old hit .343/.378/.529 in 16 games with El Paso.

And just as quickly, he's back on the plane heading to Hogtown. Do the Yankees adjust their rotation this weekend?

Matt Swarmer Chicago Cubs

Matt Swarmer (P) CHI-N - Jun. 16

Swarmer (1-2) allowed four runs on four hits and five walks while striking out four in 3.2 innings to take the loss in Thursday's game against the Padres.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: After allowing just two earned runs in 12 innings over his first two major-league starts, Swarmer has struggled over his last two outings, giving up 10 runs in 8.2 innings to take back-to-back losses. The 28-year-old had command issues during Thursday's series finale against San Diego, as he threw just 42 of his 86 pitches for strikes.

Ryan Weber New York Yankees

Ryan Weber (P) NY-A - Jun. 16

Weber was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Thursday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The right-hander's contract was selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday after Luis Severino (illness) was scratched from his scheduled start. Weber was relatively effective as a bulk reliever during Thursday's game against the Rays, as he allowed a run on two hits and no walks while striking out one in 3.2 innings. However, he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster after Severino was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list following Thursday's matchup.

Alex Patton Alex
Taylor Ward Los Angeles Angels

Taylor Ward (OF) ANA - Jun. 16

Ward went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Mariners.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: All three of Ward's hits were singles, and that served well to set the table for both of Mike Trout's home runs in the contest. This snapped Ward's 0-for-8 skid at the plate in two games since he returned from the injured list. The 28-year-old outfielder is up to a .324/.427/.607 slash line with 10 home runs, 26 RBI, 32 runs scored and a stolen base across 171 plate appearances.

Jose Leclerc Texas Rangers

Jose Leclerc (P) TEX - Jun. 16

Leclerc (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Thursday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Leclerc missed most of the 2020 season due to a shoulder issue and underwent Tommy John surgery in March of 2021 that has kept him sidelined since then. However, the right-hander began a rehab assignment in late May and posted a 5.00 ERA, 11:5 K:BB and 1.56 WHIP in nine innings over nine appearances between the Double-A and Triple-A clubs.

Mark Canha New York Mets

Odd comment from Rotowire. He's actually hitting much better than last year.

Mark Canha (OF) NY-N - Jun. 16

Canha went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a stolen base, a walk and two total runs scored in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Brewers. He was also hit by a pitch.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Canha tied the game at 4-4 with his fifth-inning blast. He was plunked in the seventh and stole second. The 33-year-old had 17 homers and 12 steals in 2021, but he has just five long balls and one steal through 52 contests this season.

Joe Musgrove San Diego Padres

Improves to 8-0, cruising past the Cubbies in Wrigley. Allowed a homer to the leadoff batter, another run in the second, then nothing (one baserunner) for the next five. Before the stat feed, he's earned $19 and $16. His BABIP is .264.

Wilmer's daddy must think like former heavyweight champ George Foreman who named all five of his sons George Foreman.

Shane all the way. Outside of some strand rate fortune there's nothing to indicate a major blowup is coming anytime soon.

How to tell Wilmer Flores apart from his brothers Mets infielder shares same name as two siblings ... yes ... that's right ... Wilmer Flores has *2* brothers named Wilmer!

Spencer Torkelson Detroit Tigers

He is late on fastballs.  It's almost like he has a slider speed bat, but is laying off most breaking pitches.  He's not striking out a crazy amount, only once per game, but he's making a lot of weak contact.  Most of his HR have been on mistakes and he's totally crushed them.  He has pretty good strike zone command. His misses are in the zone. He also takes a lot of strikes on the edges which gets him down in the count.  I'd say his plate coverage over the outside third is poor.
