Nicky Lopez Kansas City Royals

This kid is going to be a star!

Austin Riley Atlanta Braves
It will be interesting to see how he adapts to playing in the outfield and whether or not he can stick once Inciarte is ready to return. The Atlanta outfield D will definitely suffer, but if he hits anywhere near the level he has down on the farm, I'd be willing to bet the Braves will learn to live with it.

Getting the call...

Josh Bell Pittsburgh Pirates

And the deluge continues - suddenly on pace for a 30+ type year.

Over his last 3 weeks, hitting. .375 with 8 HR and 23 RBI.

I had questions over keeping him at $17 ... now definitely wishing I'd extended him!

Nicky Lopez up from the depths.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Toronto Blue Jays

He looked good on the weekend and we all knew it was simply a matter of time. The first homer was absolutely crushed. https://www.mlb.com/news/vladimir-guerrero-jr-s-first-career-home-run

I didn't get a chance to see the first HR, but when he came up, already 2-2 with a walk, and launched the first pitch on a line out in left center, I thought, "he seems to have figured it out."  That first two weeks was rough, but he had a 2-2 game Saturday with two walks and intraday today, he's 3-3 with a walk.  He's gotten his sea legs.  Watch out.

Before tomorrow's stat feed, he's -1/-1.

Giovanny Urshela New York Yankees

100 PAs is just 100 PAs.  I don't see any other .392 BABIPs on this scan.

Paddack vs Kershaw at Dodger Stadium tonight ... I'm on board the hype train :-)

Giovanny Urshela New York Yankees

I think that with Urshela, they thought "damn, that's an impressive glove..."

And if anyone ever needed a late inning defensive backup ... it's Andujar.

That he's been hitting is just icing.

As for Voit - dude had demonstrated that he could hit in the minors ... Cards decided to deal him anyway.

Yoshiba Hirano Arizona Diamondbacks

Peripherals aren't bad ... 11.6 K/9, only 2.6 BB/9.  Only 1 HR.

But 29% LD rate and a .456 will get you.

Wondering whether there's a bounceback ... a better FIP/xFIP than Holland ... but is that something to consider when thinking of dropping someone?

Giovanny Urshela New York Yankees

Voit, now Urshela... What does the Yankees brain trust see that others are missing?

When/if Andujar is healthy, there's no way he reclaims the third base job.

Keston Hiura Milwaukee Brewers

Robert Murray of The Athletic reports that the Brewers are calling up prospect second baseman Keston Hiura.

Get excited, Brewers fans. It didn't look like there was going to be a spot for Hiura in the Brewers' lineup at the start of the year, but Travis Shaw's ongoing struggles have changed the timeline. Hiura, 22, was mashing in Triple-A this year with a .333/.408/.698 batting line and 11 homers over 37 games. There's been questions about his defense, but there's no doubt that he can hit. He's worth an immediate pickup in mixed fantasy leagues on upside alone.

Julio Urias Los Angeles Dodgers

Before we get the pitchforks out, Bleacher Report says 'the woman denied a physical altercation' while talking to police, but also notes that according to TMZ, video seems to back up the witness accounts.

Clearly this is going to need a few days to sort out.

JULIO URIASRP, LOS ANGELES DODGERS

According to TMZ Sports, Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias was arrested Monday night in Los Angeles for an alleged domestic violence incident.

The alleged incident took place at Beverly Center, an upscale shopping area. According to a witness, Urias was arguing with a woman in the parking lot before shoving her to the ground. According to A.J. Perez of USA Today, Urias was arrested and transported to downtown Los Angeles before having his bond set at $20,000. The Dodgers and MLB have yet to issue a comment on the matter. The 22-year-old Urias has appeared in nine games with the Dodgers this season.

Matt Olson Oakland Athletics

Olson has now homered in back-to-back games. A good sign coming off that hand injury.

Oscar Mercado Cleveland Indians

Getting the call to replace Tyler Naquin, who appears headed to the IL. If your need is speed, this kid can fly. 14 stolen bases this year at Columbus and he could be up for the long haul.

Mickey Lopez Seattle Mariners

121 Lopez in the data base, but no Nicky to be found. Can we get him called up from the depths, Alex? Bit of pop, decent speed, and a very solid understanding of the strike zone. That K/BB ratio of 5/20 is just silly. Whit Merrifield is moving to the outfield to accommodate this move.

Brendan Rodgers Colorado Rockies

The Rockies have to sort out what they are doing with McMahon, and I don't think they've figured it out. Until that situation is resolved, Rodgers is probably better off playing full-time at Albuquerque. The kid is definitely making a push for a promotion. Two-homer day yesterday.

Carlos Rodon Chicago White Sox

Carlos Rodon (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery this week.

It had been looking like it was headed in that direction and Rodon has decided to go under the knife following a second opinion. He's a good bet to be sidelined until the second half of next season.
