Fantasy Impact: The extent of Hill's injury is unknown, so the timetable for his return is questionable. The 4-1 Hill was phenomenal for the Dodgers, but his injury does put them and fantasy owners in a tough spot.

Fantasy Impact: Scherzer broke his nose during a bunting drill but will go through his normal routine today in preparation of starting the second game of the double header. He should be locked into fantasy lineups assuming he gives it a go.


The Marlins are reportedly expected to call up Zac Gallen for his MLB debut on Thursday versus the Cardinals. (Source: Craig Mish on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gallen will be pitching against the team that traded him to Miami as part of the Marcell Ozuna package. The 23-year-old has been dominant in the minors this year, posting a 1.77 ERA with a 112/17 K/BB ratio in 91 1/3 innings pitched. He needs to be picked up everywhere.


The Astros activated Jose Altuve (knee, hamstring) off the 10-day IL. (Source: Brian McTaggart on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Altuve is playing second base and batting third in his return versus Tyler Mahle and the Reds. The former MVP has been out of action for a little over a month with knee and hamstring problems. Fantasy owners should limit expectations when it comes to stolen bases from here on out, but we should see plenty of hits and hopefully some power moving forward.
