Jackie Bradley Jr., riding a 29-game hitting streak, will bat leadoff for the Red Sox tonight against Colorado as manager John Farrell gives Mookie Betts a planned day off. Betts will return to the No. 1 spot and Bradley will move back down in the order when the Red Sox begin a three-game series Friday night in Toronto.

You know you're a fantasy owner when you're not a Pirates fan but get frustrated when 5-3 lead becomes 8-3 lead in bottom of eighth. No save for Melancon!

Tough one as Royals lose 3B Moustakas for rest of season with torn ACL. Royals no reasonable replacement for fantasy, but available choices include Valencia, Lamb, Nunez, Reynolds.

Struggling reliever Chasen Shreve is going on the DL with a shoulder issue. He is being checked by doctors to figure out the severity.

Axe Hair has announced it has signed long-haired Mets pitchers Noah Syndergaard & Jacob DeGrom to endorsement deals.

Does Matt Harvey have shoulder weakness or fatigue? Why do I ask? Innings 1-3 his ERA is 3.03; innings 4-6 his ERA is 9.89. Pitches 1-25 opponents hit .212 against him and pitches 51-75 they bat .424 against him. In addition, velocity of all pitches decline accordingly. Pitch selection 2nd and 3rd time around the lineup could be a factor but not enough to explain the vast differential. These facts should not be ignored by the Mets in diagnosing his struggles.
