Latest Player Updates


Nick Ahmed went 1-for-2 with a home run, a run scored, and an RBI in the Giants' 5-4 win over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact: Ahmed's performance was highlighted by his crucial home run, which contributed significantly to the Giants' narrow victory. Despite a modest season batting average of .250, this game showcased Ahmed's potential to deliver in clutch situations. His season-long performance, characterized by a low walk rate (.052) and a modest wOBA (.270), suggests that while he may not be a consistent high-impact player, he can provide occasional power and RBI opportunities. Fantasy managers should view Ahmed as a situational player whose value increases in matchups that favor him.

Matt Chapman went 2-for-4 in the Giants' 5-4 win over the Cubs, contributing a home run, a double, two runs scored, and an RBI.

Fantasy Impact: This performance highlighted Chapman's potential to deliver key hits, though his season-long batting average of .233 still leaves much to be desired. His power numbers, with 9 homers and 20 doubles, provide some solace to fantasy managers, but the high strikeout rate (.242) continues to be a concern. Chapman's ability to impact games with extra-base hits is evident, yet his inconsistency at the plate may limit his fantasy appeal in less forgiving formats.

Erik Miller delivered a hitless inning despite issuing a walk in the Giants' 5-4 win over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact: While he didn't add any strikeouts to his tally, Miller managed to keep his ERA steady and avoid any damage on the scoreboard. His season-long metrics, including a solid 4.00 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP, continue to make him a viable option in deeper fantasy leagues, particularly for those in need of holds.

Nico Hoerner went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in the Cubs' 5-4 defeat to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: While Hoerner's multi-hit game is a bright spot, his season-long batting average of .241 and modest power numbers (only 2 homers and 18 RBI through 70 games) continue to limit his fantasy appeal. His value remains primarily in leagues that reward stolen bases, where his 12 steals are a useful contribution. The lack of consistent run production and power, combined with a middling .294 wOBA, suggests that fantasy managers should temper expectations for significant improvement in other categories.

Justin Steele delivered a solid performance against the Giants, allowing two earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out nine over 7.1 innings in Monday's 5-4 loss.

Fantasy Impact: Despite his strong outing, Steele's season continues to be a tale of personal success overshadowed by a lack of support, keeping him winless through 11 starts. His 3.08 ERA and 1.06 WHIP are commendable, especially with a 9.1 K/9 rate, indicating he remains a valuable asset in fantasy leagues, particularly for strikeouts and ratio help. However, fantasy managers should temper expectations for wins due to the Cubs' inconsistent offense and bullpen support.

Cade Povich took the loss Monday, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over 5.2 innings against the Guardians.

Fantasy Impact: This outing nudged his ERA up to 4.15 and his WHIP to 1.29 for the season, reflecting a continuation of his struggle to dominate at the mound. With a modest strikeout rate of 5.8 K/9 and a concerning 4.69 FIP, Povich's fantasy value remains shaky. His low BABIP of .242 suggests some bad luck, but not enough to significantly alter his outlook. Fantasy managers should view Povich as a risky play, primarily in deeper leagues or as a streaming option depending on matchups.

Andres Gimenez went 0-for-3 but managed to steal a base in the Guardians' narrow 3-2 victory over the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: Despite not contributing with his bat, Gimenez did draw a walk and showcased his speed with another stolen base. This season, Gimenez's .252 average and modest power numbers have been a bit underwhelming for fantasy managers, especially given his potential coming into the season. His speed remains a valuable asset, as evidenced by his 14 stolen bases, but his overall production has not lived up to expectations. Fantasy managers should consider him a situational play, primarily for his speed, until he shows more consistency at the plate.

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-4 in the Guardians' 3-2 victory over the Orioles, including a home run, two RBI, a run scored, and a stolen base.

Fantasy Impact: Ramirez's performance was a bright spot in what has been a solid season for the third baseman, boosting his home run tally to 20 and his RBI count to 69. His ability to combine power with speed, as evidenced by his 15 stolen bases, continues to make him a valuable asset in all fantasy formats. His consistent run production and multi-category contributions should keep him firmly entrenched in fantasy lineups.

Tanner Bibee delivered a strong performance, allowing just one earned run on five hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings in Monday's 3-2 win against the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: This outing continues a solid season for Bibee, who now boasts a 3.50 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP through 16 starts. His ability to maintain a high strikeout rate, now at 10.9 K/9, coupled with a superb 4.82 strikeout-to-walk ratio, makes him a valuable asset in fantasy leagues. Fantasy managers should consider him a reliable starting option, especially in matchups where strikeouts are highly valued.
