Fantasy Impact: Casas’ MRI showed that he will need more than the 10-day IL stint to recover. The team has not placed a timetable on his expected return. The Red Sox will likely rotate multiple players at first base in his absence.

Fantasy Impact: The move does not come as a surprise considering Hays left Sunday’s game early with a calf injury. This should open up even more playing time for Colton Cowser.

Fantasy Impact: Kjerstad should see a fair share of playing time with Austin Hays landing on the injured list. The power hitting outfielder hit .349, with 10 home runs, and 30 RBI in 21 games with the Tides.

Fantasy Impact: Burger has been on the injured list for a left intercostal strain, but is beginning to feel better. There is no timetable for his return, but returning to hitting drills would be a step in the right direction.
