Max Fried – SP Atlanta Braves

The uncertainty of Fried’s status is something to monitor. There’s no word on what things he is working through. As Bowman said, there weren’t any physical ailments that indicated he was injured following his blowup last start.

Christian Arroyo – 2B Boston Red Sox

This should lead the way for Emmanuel Valdez to come in and possibly take the job over.

Brandon Hughes – RP Chicago Cubs

This is an important next step for Hughes as he tried to come back from a knee injury that just won’t go away. We’ll see how that knee responds to this before making any assumptions.

Eloy Jimenez – OF Chicago White Sox

The team waited one day to officially make this move because there was nobody available to join the team on Saturday.

Graham Ashcraft – SP Cincinnati Reds

It seems as if the combination of too many pitches alongside taking a comebacker both contributed to Ashcraft being taken out of Sunday’s game. Consider him DTD as the manager didn’t seem too concerned over the ailment.

Jake Fraley – OF Cincinnati Reds

It looks as though Fraley will be ready to roll on Tuesday.

Aaron Civale – SP Cleveland Guardians

Civale has been out of action for almost a month and continues to work toward getting better. He will potentially pitch an extended Spring Training too, but all of this depends on how his body responds to the aforementioned BP and sim game.

Jose Altuve – 2B Houston Astros

That’s fantastic to hear, but it’s all dependent on how Altuve progresses. That said, he seems to be on track to start this without complications.

Jose Urquidy – SP Houston Astros

This indicates that the minor swelling that was speculated is significantly more than advertised. Urquidy has struggled to start the year, and he likely will be shut down for a while. With the All-Star Break being an optimistic timeline, the Astros are in desperate need of help and could do so through a trade.

Ryan Yarbrough – SP Kansas City Royals

Good news following a scary incident. The hope is that Yarbrough can get back to 100% health soon, but the team will likely be very cautious.

Kyle Farmer – INF Minnesota Twins

Fantastic news!

Ranger Suarez – SP Philadelphia Phillies

Due to his efficiency, Suarez was limited to just 48 pitches over five innings pitched. While it’s a tough debut matchup next week in Colorado, Suarez is someone that should be added in deeper leagues.

Kolten Wong – 2B Seattle Mariners

Wong has struggled to start the year, but he’ll look to get back at it midweek.

Alex Wood – SP San Francisco Giants

There’s no word on how many appearances Wood will need to make, but one should expect at least two.

Victor Robles – OF Washington Nationals

Robles injured himself while sliding on Saturday and the decision was made on Sunday to put him on the Injured List. He will miss at least ten days after a solid start to the season.
