Washington Nationals prospect and uber-popular fantasy baseball prospect Trea Turner tweaked his hamstring and was forced out of the game Saturday night. The good news for the Nats and owners is that it doesn't appear to be serious and Turner may - at best - only miss a few days. With a combination of power and speed, Turner was drafted in the early second round of most fantasy baseball drafts this year.
On the waiver wire: Andrelton Simmons is a band-aid.
Gary Sanchez on 10-day DL
After starting the season 3-of-20, Yankees' catcher Gary Sanchez has landed on the 10-day disabled list with a bicep strain suffered while swinging during an at-bat. There is no timetable for his return, so fantasy owners could be without him for longer than the 10 days. It's a huge blow at a shallow position considering Sanchez was the top catcher selected in many drafts last month.
On the waiver wire: Sandy Leon, Stephen Vogt, Jason Castro.

Greg Bird day-to-day
With the loss of Sanchez, it would be nice to see Greg Bird's bad wheel heal. The first baseman tore the cover off the ball during spring training, but fouled one off his ankle in late-March and has been fighting through some discomfort since. He's 1-16 with seven strikeouts so far this season.
Red Sox flu bug
The Red Sox clubhouse is fighting off a nasty flu bug that has bit Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramirez and, most recently, Andrew Benintendi. Reporters were kind enough to let us know that the top prospect in baseball had to vomit during the sixth inning on Saturday. Forget the Rally Monkey, the Puke 'n Rally has come to Boston.

Jeremy Guthrie pitched 2/3 of the first inning and allowed 10 earned runs to the Phillies, which works out to a 135.00 ERA in his first start for the Nationals. I'm not even mad, I'm impressed.
Darvish better, but still erratic
Darvish held the A's to one run on four hits in his second start of the season, but has walked eight batters in 12 1/3 innings pitched so far this year.
Indians SP 4 & 5 struggle
Josh Tomlin and Trevor Bauer allowed 10 earned runs on 14 hits to the Arizona Diamondbacks in just over 10 innings pitched. If there was a silver lining, the back-end duo only allowed one walk. So, they were getting the ball over, but they hanged 'em and Arizona banged 'em around.
Buxton moved down lineup
Byron Buxton leads MLB with 13 strikeouts. He was removed from the No. 3 slot in the Twins lineup and hit seventh on Saturday. Despite two more strikeouts in the seven hole, Buxton picked up a double. His first extra base hit of the season.

Cruz in early-season slump
Nelson Cruz is just 2-22 with an extra base hit and 11 strikeouts to start the season.

Waiver wire hero: Brandon Drury
Why isn't Drury owned in more leagues? He's started the season 10-19 with four runs and five RBI. He hit 16 homers in 130-ish games last season. So, the power will come in what is a stacked Diamondbacks lineup. Plenty of RBI chances for the guy with 3B/OF eligibility.
Padres' prospect Manuel Margot hit two homers on Friday and two doubles on Saturday. He's also projected to swipe 30 bases this year. He's still available in 90 percent of leagues on FOXSports.com.
