Fantasy Impact: The Braves and fantasy owners should have alternate plans for closers at this point. Vizcaino had appeared in four games so far this season and had a 2.25 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. Dan Winkler and AJ Minter are the ones in line for closes, more than likely.

The Phillies are reportedly optioning Nick Pivetta to the minors and moving Jerad Eickhoff to the rotation. (Source: Matt Gelb on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pivetta earned the win in last night's start against the Mets, but was mediocre at best, allowing three runs and 10 base-runners over five innings. He's struggled all season and the Phillies appear to have reached their temporary breaking point. Pivetta still has quality raw stuff and should be back in the rotation at some point, but for now, fantasy owners in redraft leagues can move on.

Blake Snell has been placed on the 10-day IL, due to a fractured fourth right toe. Snell said the injury occurred on Sunday when he was getting out of the shower and decided to move a decorative stand in his bathroom. Part of the stand fell as he lifted it and the bottom piece, which was made from granite, fell on his right foot. The IL move was retroactive to Sunday and the Rays are calling up Emilio Pagan in Snell's place. (Source: Mark Topkin on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Snell is a cornerstone for fantasy owners, so this will surely sting. Luckily for the ace, the Rays only expect him to miss one start. Continue to monitor his injury as it is still breaking and will surely develop over the next few days.
