MLB Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: The Diamondbacks have placed Hoover on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
Impact: The reliever will likely be out through the All-Star break. Hoover's eight holds are tied for second among members of the Arizona bullpen and he's posted a 4.18 ERA in 31 appearances this season.
News: Fien has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained rotator cuff.
Impact: The move comes three days after the journeyman reliever was rocked for five runs and six hits in two-thirds of an inning against the Cardinals. With a 12.75 ERA over two different teams this year, Fien has absolutely no fantasy value.
News: The Padres have placed Diaz on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right forearm.
Impact: The Rule 5 pick exited Wednesday's start against the Cubs after 2 1/3 innings with the injury and figures to be sidelined indefinitely. Diaz is 1-1 with a 6.82 ERA in three starts and 21 relief appearances during his rookie season.
News: The Tigers have released Rodriguez following another poor outing on Thursday.
Impact: The 35-year-old was removed from the closer's role in May and had his season ERA rise to 7.92 after allowing a game-breaking grand slam to Robinson Cano in the Tigers' 9-6 loss at Seattle. Rodgriguez was in the final season of a three-year, $17 million contract the six-time All-Star signed with the Brewers in 2015, prior to his trade to Detroit in December of that year.
News: Sano is not in the lineup Friday in Cleveland due to an illness.
Impact: Even if he's feeling better Sano may consider sitting out Saturday, as well, considering he's 1 for 16 with nine strikeouts lifetime against scheduled starter Corey Kluber.
News: Urias will undergo left anterior capsule surgery on his pitching shoulder on Tuesday.
Impact: Anterior capsule surgery is one of the most difficult arm surgeries for a pitcher to recover from. Pitchers who have required the procedure in the past have required as many as 18 months to fully recover. Even in the best case scenario, Urias won't be returning to the mound until 2018, and it's entirely possible he will miss a significant chunk of next season as well.
News: Kemp is not in Friday's lineup after leafing Thursday's game with a left hamstring injury.
Impact: Braves manager Brian Snitker had originally said he removed Kemp for precautionary reasons.
News: The Angels have optioned Cron to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Impact: The 33-year-old opted out of his minor league contract with the Angels on Wednesday, though he has the right to refuse the claim and become a free agent. A 12-game winner for the Astros last season, Fister went 1-0 with a 4.02 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Salt Lake after signing with the Angels last month. The Red Sox do have an opening in the rotation with Eduardo Rodriguez and Brian Johnson currently out with injuries.
News: Presley has been placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list after he was injured in Thursday's loss at Seattle.
Impact: Presley sustained the injury when he collided with the outfield wall during Detroit's 9-6 defeat.

Impact:
News: Headley missed Thursday's game against the Angels due to back spasms.
Impact: The third baseman may be unavailable for Friday's series opener with Texas as well. Ronald Torreyes started at third base in Thursday's contest and would likely again draw the nod if Headley can't go.
News: Matt Kemp went 1 for 3 Thursday as the Atlanta Braves beat the San Francisco Giants 12-11. He ended the game with a .320 batting average.
Impact: Kemp (left hamstring) left for what Braves manager Brian Snitker described as precautionary reasons.

Impact: Cain fell to 0-5 with an 8.31 ERA in eight road starts this season and makes his next start at home Tuesday against the Rockies. He actually pitched OK at Coors Field on June 17, working around nine hits and two walks to yield two runs - one earned - over five innings.

News: Kyle Crick allowed one hit without giving up a run in 2.1 innings as the San Francisco Giants lost to the Atlanta Braves 12-11 on Thursday. Crick did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.43 WHIP on the season.

News: Michael Conforto went 0 for 1 Thursday as the New York Mets lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3. He ended the game with a .277 batting average.

Impact: Taylor went 0 for 11 with two walks in the Dodgers' final three games against the Mets after batting .346 with two homers, three doubles, eight RBIs and six runs in his prevous six contests.

News: Lucas Duda went 1 for 2 with a double and an RBI Thursday as the New York Mets fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3. He ended the game with a .242 batting average.

Impact: Pederson has hit safely in eight of 10 games since coming off the DL, and is batting .360 with three homers, three doubles, five RBIs and 10 runs in his last eight. However, he has a .160/.222/.160 slash line in 25 at-bats against lefties this season, and the Dodgers face Colorado lefty Kyle Freeland on Friday.
News: Jose Reyes went 1 for 4 Thursday as the New York Mets fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3. He ended the game with a .193 batting average.
Impact:
News: Austin Barnes went 0 for 1 with an RBI Thursday as the Los Angeles Dodgers topped the New York Mets 6-3. Barnes added two stolen bases. He ended the game with a .280 batting average.

Impact: Norris had won each of his previous two starts but received a wealth of run support in each. The inconsistent 24-year-old will next pitch Wednesday at home against the Royals, a team he allowed three runs to in a five-inning no-decision on May 29.
News: Andrew Moore allowed three runs on six hits in 7.0 innings to win his major league debut as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Detroit Tigers 9-6 on Thursday. Moore struck out four, ending the game with a 3.86 ERA and 0.86 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Moore, a second-round pick in the 2015 draft, certainly didn't look out of place in his introduction to the big leagues. "Heck of a debut," Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "You can't say a whole lot more. What an effort. It's kind of what we've seen out of Andrew Moore since the day he put a Mariners jersey on." The 23-year-old likely earned himself another start, slated to take place Wednesday at home against the lowly Phillies.
News: Steve Cishek recorded his first save, allowing no runs on no hits in 1.0 inning, as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Detroit Tigers 9-6 on Thursday. Cishek struck out two, ending the game with a 3.97 ERA and 0.97 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Cishek got the call in the ninth inning with Edwin Diaz unavailable after pitching in each of the previous two days. The former Marlins closer figures to be first in line for saves in the event of a Diaz injury, though he won't hold much fantasy value in his present role.
News: Kyle Seager went 0 for 4 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners topped the Detroit Tigers 9-6. He ended the game with a .253 batting average.
Impact: The Mariners' offense is really clicking right now, though Seager hasn't played a big role in the surge. He went 1 for 14 for the four-game series and is hitting just .167 (6 for 36) over his past nine games.
News: Ian Kinsler went 2 for 5 with a home run and two RBIs Thursday as the Detroit Tigers fell to the Seattle Mariners 9-6. The homer was his eighth of the season. Kinsler stole a base. He ended the game with a .254 batting average.
Impact: Kinsler went deep for a third consecutive game and hit safely for the 11th time in his past 12 contests, a stretch in which he's batting .300 (15 for 50) with four homers, eight RBIs and 11 runs scored. The 35-year-old is showing some speed as well, having stolen three bases in his last three outings.
News: Miguel Cabrera went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs Thursday as the Detroit Tigers fell to the Seattle Mariners 9-6. The homer was his eighth of the season. He ended the game with a .271 batting average.
Impact: The star slugger broke out of a 1-for-14 slump by producing his third homer in his last eight games. Cabrera has for the most part been his usual self of late, as he's batting .302 (13 for 43) with eight extra-base hits and nine runs scored over an 11-game stretch.
News: Danny Valencia went 2 for 2 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 9-6. Valencia scored once. He ended the game with a .262 batting average.

Impact: Castellanos recorded a second straight two-hit game and is having a strong June after putting together a miserable May. He's hitting .306 with four homers and 12 RBIs in 19 games this month, a considerable improvement from the .175 average and .505 OPS he posted in May.
News: Nelson Cruz went 0 for 3 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 9-6. Cruz scored once. He ended the game with a .292 batting average.
Impact:
News: Robinson Cano went 2 for 4 with two home runs and six RBIs Thursday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 9-6. The homers were his 12th and 13th of the season. He ended the game with a .284 batting average.
Impact: The standout second baseman connected for a two-run homer in the third inning and a game-breaking grand slam in the seventh. After recording just six RBIs through his first 19 games of June, Cano has eight in the last two.
News: Jose Iglesias went 0 for 4 with an RBI Thursday as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Seattle Mariners 9-6. He ended the game with a .255 batting average.
Impact:
News: Justin Upton went 1 for 4 with an RBI Thursday as the Detroit Tigers fell to the Seattle Mariners 9-6. He ended the game with a .269 batting average.

News: Alex Avila went 1 for 4 with a double Thursday as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Seattle Mariners 9-6. Avila scored once. He ended the game with a .313 batting average.

Impact:
News: Ben Gamel went 1 for 4 with a double and two RBIs Thursday as the Seattle Mariners topped the Detroit Tigers 9-6. Gamel scored once. He ended the game with a .352 batting average.
Impact: Gamel's two-run double in the second inning extended his hitting streak to 14 games, the longest current active run in the majors. The impressive rookie is batting an outstanding .448 (26 for 58) with seven RBIs and 15 runs scored during the tear and has posted a .432 average since May 29.
News: Jean Segura went 1 for 4 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 9-6. Segura scored once. He ended the game with a .339 batting average.
Impact:
News: Mitch Haniger went 1 for 3 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 9-6. Haniger scored twice. He ended the game with a .320 batting average.
Impact: Haniger has now totaled 31 runs in 32 games this season, plus he's batting .308 (12 for 39) with a pair of homers over his last 10 contests. The offseason addition has really enjoyed hitting in his new home park, where he's registered a .362 average, 12 RBIs and a 1.066 OPS in 13 games thus far.
News: Mike Zunino went 0 for 3 Thursday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 9-6. He ended the game with a .247 batting average.
Impact:
News: J.D. Martinez went 1 for 4 with a double Thursday as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Seattle Mariners 9-6. Martinez scored once. He ended the game with a .305 batting average.
Impact:

News: Jesse Chavez allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks in 4.0 innings as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the New York Yankees 10-5 on Thursday. Chavez struck out three, ending the game with a 5.15 ERA and 1.37 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Chavez was hurt by serving up a three-run homer to Aaron Judge in the second inning, the 12th consecutive start in which he's been taken deep at least once. The well-traveled right-hander has posted a troubling 9.13 ERA over his last five road starts and won't be a recommended option when he takes the mound at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday.
News: Dellin Betances allowed two runs on two hits and one walk in 0.2 innings as the New York Yankees lost to the Los Angeles Angels 10-5 on Thursday. Betances struck out two, ending the game with a 1.16 ERA and 1.11 WHIP on the season.
Impact: This marks the first time Betances has surrendered an earned run since April 8. Though he's no longer closing games with Aroldis Chapman back, the three-time All-Star's stellar ERA and 45 strikeouts in 23 1/3 still give him plenty of fantasy appeal.
News: David Hernandez allowed one hit without giving up a run in 1.0 inning as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the New York Yankees 10-5 on Thursday. Hernandez struck out two, ending the game with a 2.28 ERA and 0.97 WHIP on the season.
Impact:
News: Luis Severino fell to 5-3, allowing a season-high six runs - five earned - on eight hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the New York Yankees lost to the Los Angeles Angels 10-5 on Thursday. Severino struck out five, ending the game with a 3.30 ERA and 1.09 WHIP on the season.
Impact: The 23-year-old is going through a rough stretch, having permitted nine earned runs in 12 innings over his past two starts. Severino went 3-0 with a splendid 1.35 ERA while amassing 37 strikeouts during a five-start run prior to this decline, so owners probably shouldn't cut bait. He next faces a White Sox team he recorded 10 Ks against while allowing three earned runs across eight innings back on April 18.
News: Aaron Hicks went 1 for 4 Thursday as the New York Yankees lost to the Los Angeles Angels 10-5. Hicks scored once. He ended the game with a .300 batting average.

Impact: Maybin's 22 stolen bases already make him a fantasy asset, but he's further raised his stock with a recent power surge. He's now homered three times in his last five games and owns a terrific .388 average (19 for 49) with nine steals and 17 runs scored over his past 12 contests.
News: Curtis Granderson went 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and an RBI Thursday as the New York Mets fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3. The homer was his ninth of the season. He ended the game with a .225 batting average.

Impact:
News: Chris Carter went 2 for 4 with a double Thursday as the New York Yankees lost to the Los Angeles Angels 10-5. Carter scored once. He ended the game with a .209 batting average.
Impact: The strikeout-prone slugger entered the matchup in an 0-for-10 slump, though he has been a serviceable fantasy option at first base for most of his month. Carter is hitting .269 (14 for 52) with four homers and nine RBIs over his past 15 games and appears to be secure in an everyday role for the time being.
News: Luis Valbuena went 1 for 5 with an RBI Thursday as the Los Angeles Angels topped the New York Yankees 10-5. He ended the game with a .194 batting average.
Impact: Valbuena's bat appears to be finally coming to life, as he's 5 for 14 with two homers and six RBIs over his last three games. Though the veteran infielder rarely hits for a high average, he has recorded double-digit homers in each of the past four seasons.
News: Yunel Escobar went 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI Thursday as the Los Angeles Angels topped the New York Yankees 10-5. Escobar scored twice. He ended the game with a .276 batting average.
Impact: The third baseman went through a bit of a slump last week but has bounced back with three two-hit outings in his past four games. Escobar is 6 for 17 with three extra-base hits and four runs scored during that stretch.
News: Eric Young Jr. went 1 for 4 Thursday as the Los Angeles Angels beat the New York Yankees 10-5. He ended the game with a .288 batting average.
