Game Recaps

Gerrit Cole did not give up any runs on four hits and one walk while striking out nine in 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's intrasquad game, James Smyth of YES Network reports.

Fantasy Impact: Cole was able to go 84 pitches which puts him on track to be able to go a full start with no restrictions on Opening Day against the Nationals. The veteran starter should be one of the top starters in fantasy baseball this season.

Ryan Weber threw 79 pitches across four innings during Saturday's intrasquad game, Ian Browne of reports.

Fantasy Impact: Weber had a dominant spring, pitching nine scoreless innings, walking none and striking out 11 over three starts and has looked good in summer camp as well. The 29-year old is the favorite to win the third spot in the rotation.

Casey Mize faces the top of the order on Thursday, and walks away perfect.

Fantasy Impact: In an intrasquad outing on Thursday, Mize went seven up, seven down in two perfect innings. After the 3rd out in inning two, a coach yelled for players to remain on the field. Mize would then proceed to strike out Jorge Bonifacio for the seventh out.

Nathan Eovaldi gave up just one hit and one walk over four scoreless innings in an intrasquad game Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Eovaldi looked good in the spring and has been impressive in summer camp as the veteran starter is in line to be the Opening Day pitcher for the Red Sox. Eovaldi could be a solid pickup in 12-team fantasy leagues and deeper if owners need pitching depth.

Ryan Yarbrough tossed 3 and 1/3 innings of shutout baseball in an intrasquad game Wednesday. He struck out three and allowed one hit.

Fantasy Impact: Yarbrough figures to throw around 45-50 innings in this shortened season, split between starts and piggy-back appearances. It will be interesting to see if he can put his rough 2019 September (.377 wOBA, 7.52 ERA over 26+ innings) behind him.

Tom Eshelman started Wednesday's intrasquad game, pitching three innings. He allowed three hits and one unearned run while striking out a batter.

Fantasy Impact: Eshelman is battling for a spot at the back of the Orioles' rotation, and is off to a good start. Even if he wins a spot, there's not much fantasy value here.

Michael Fulmer (elbow) tossed two innings in an intrasquad game Wednesday, allowing an unearned run striking out one.

Fantasy Impact: Wednesday was Fulmer's first game action since Spring Training 2019. Fulmer will continue to build up arm strength during summer camp. The Tigers haven't publicized how they plan to use Fulmer, but a long-relief role seems likely.
