Updated VBR Player Note
08/23/1991Yordan Alvarez
(HOU - LF)
90 → 120 PA.
08/23/1913Bo Bichette
(TOR - SS)
20 → 120 PA. Bichett should be the starting SS for the rest of the season.
08/20/1981Gio Urshela
(NYY - 3B,SS)
10 → 110 PA. Re-entering an override that didn't seem to stick.
08/14/19198Will Smith
(LAD - C)
20 → 100 PA. If he keeps hitting like this, the Dodger's can't justify not starting Smith.
08/12/19798Rich Hill
(LAD - SP) IL60
21 → 11 IP. 4 → 0 GS. Hill will likely be a reliever when he returns this season.
08/12/19348Luke Weaver
(ARI - SP) IL60
9 → 3 GS. At this point it's unclear if Weaver will return this season.
08/09/19114Oscar Mercado
(CLE - CF)
115 → 165 PA, .400 → .300 BABIP, .34 → .20 SO%.

(SF - OF)
.220 → .242 AVG.
08/05/1926Asher Wojciechowski
(BAL - SP,RP)
2 → 12 GS. Wojciechowski's spot in the rotation feels secure after 4 straight starts.
08/05/19241Victor Caratini
(CHC - C,1B)
40 → 130 PA. Caratini will catch while Wilson Contreras is injured.
08/05/19249Willson Contreras
(CHC - C) IL10
150 → 75 PA. Contreras will miss a month with a strained hamstring.
08/05/19483Archie Bradley
(ARI - RP)
1 → 5 SV. Arizona will use a closer by committee after removing Holland, but Bradley seems to be the leader of that committee.
08/05/19302Jose Leclerc
(TEX - RP)
3 → 9 SV. Leclerc has re-won the closer job.
08/05/191024Wade Davis
(COL - RP)
9 → 1 SV. Davis lost the closer's job after posting an ERA north of 10 in the 2nd half.
08/05/19127Scott Oberg
(COL - RP) IL60
1 → 9 SV. Oberg won the closer's job from the struggling Wade Davis.
08/05/19423Willians Astudillo
(MIN - C,3B) IL10
170 → 95 AB. Astudillo is out with an unknown timetable for a strained oblique.
08/05/19113Jay Bruce
(PHI - 1B,RF) IL10
137 → 117 AB. Bruce should miss the minimum 10 days with a sprained rib.
08/05/19167Edwin Encarnacion
(NYY - 1B,DH) IL10
160 → 85 AB. Encarnacion will miss at least 3 weeks with a wrist fracture.
08/05/19228Raimel Tapia
(COL - CF)
80 → 150 AB. Tapia will start in place of the injured David Dahl.
08/05/19116David Dahl
(COL - LF,CF,RF) IL10
164 → 94 AB. Dahl will miss time with an ankle sprain.
08/05/197Zack Greinke
(HOU - SP)
5 → 6 W, 2 → 1 L. Greinke's W-L odds improve with the Astros batting for him.
08/05/1970Nicholas Castellanos
(CHC - RF)
20 → 25 RBI. Castellanos gets a slight bump in value from an improved team around him after joining the Cubs.
08/05/19394Anthony Bass
(SEA - RP)
0 → 4 SV. Seattle won't be winning much this year, but when they do, Bass should be the closer.
08/05/19426Jake Faria
(MIL - SP) MiLB
2 → 8 GS. Faria is expected to start when he joins the Rays.
07/29/19400Donovan Solano
(SF - 2B,SS)
70 → 115 PA. .220 → .269 AVG.
07/26/19883Luis Severino
(NYY - SP) IL60
40 → 10 IP. (0 GS) Severino will join the bullpen when he returns in September, and then go back to starting for the playoffs.
07/26/19437Joey Gallo
(TEX - 1B,LF,CF,RF) IL10
214 → 44 PA. Gallo is likely to return with only a couple weeks left after breaking his hamate bone, if he returns this season at all.
07/25/19208Blake Snell
(TB - SP) IL10
12 → 6 GS. Snell will miss at least 4 weeks recovering from elbow surgery.
07/19/19222Keston Hiura
(MIL - 2B)
75 → 150 PA. Hiura will replace Travis Shaw who was placed on the IL with a wrist injury that might have more to do with Shaw playing poorly and Hiura's high potential.
07/16/191168Alex Wood
(CIN - SP)
12 → 7 GS. Wood will likely make two more rehab starts before returning to the majors in late July or early August.
07/12/19225Ender Inciarte
(ATL - CF) IL10
252 → 150 AB. Enciarte is unlikely to take his starting job back from Austin Riley when he returns from his back injury.
07/09/19469Nathan Eovaldi
(BOS - SP)
31 IP, 4.35 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, 28 K, 13 SV. Eovaldi is expected to move to the bullpen and serve as closer when he returns from injury after the all-star break.
07/09/19-David Robertson
(PHI - RP) IL60
38 → 21 IP.
07/09/19181Jake Lamb
(ARI - 3B)
350 → 230 PA.
07/05/19157Stephen Piscotty
(OAK - RF)
276 → 186. Piscotty will likely miss all of July with a knee injury sustained sliding into second base.
07/05/19307Tommy La Stella
(LAA - 2B,3B) IL10
200 → 65 PA. With a fractured tibia, La Stella won't return until September.
07/05/19-Steve Pearce
(BOS - 1B,LF,DH) IL60
140 → 90 PA. Pearce suffered a setback with his knee issue. The timetable is unknown but he's unlikely to return before August.
07/05/19595Kevin Gausman
(CIN - SP)
13 → 6 GS. Gausman is due back late July, but hit rotation spot is not guaranteed.
07/05/191211Taylor Clarke
(ARI - SP)
2 → 7 GS.
07/05/191011Jon Duplantier
(ARI - SP) MiLB
7 → 17 IP. Expected to return late July/early August.
07/03/19243Gregory Polanco
(PIT - RF) IL10
350 → 250 PA.
07/02/1910Giancarlo Stanton
(NYY - LF,RF,DH) IL60
316 → 175 PA. Stanton is out until at least August with a knee injury.
07/01/19-Jordan Hicks
(STL - RP) IL60
Out for season with torn UCL.
06/28/1932Corey Kluber
(CLE - SP) IL60
13 → 8 GS.
06/28/19-Jameson Taillon
(PIT - SP) IL60
13 → 7 GS. Taillons timetable is uncertain, but it's unlikely he comes back before August if he does return this season.
06/28/19210Tyler Glasnow
(TB - SP,RP) IL60
13 → 7 GS. After suffering a setback, Glasnow is likely out until August.
06/26/19294Jarrod Dyson
(ARI - CF,RF)
110 → 200 PA (8 → 15 SB)
06/24/19382Bobby Bradley
(CLE - 1B) MiLB
20 → 100 PA. Bradley was called up to the majors, but it's unclear how much playing time he'll get initially.
06/24/19201Hansel Robles
(LAA - RP)
6 → 13 SV.
06/24/19199Brandon Dixon
(DET - 1B,RF)
50 → 280 PA. Updated to reflect roles as an everyday starter.
06/22/19-Frankie Montas
(OAK - SP) SUS
With an 80-game suspension, Montas will return with just a week left in the season, meaning he's unlikely to pitch again this year.
06/21/19407Scott Kingery
(PHI - 3B,SS)
180 → 250 AB. Updated to reflect role as an almost-every-day starter.
06/18/1999Nick Senzel
(CIN - 2B,3B,CF)
270 → 330 PA. Updated to reflect role as everyday leadoff hitter.
06/18/19284Michael Chavis
(BOS - 1B,2B,3B) IL10
180 → 230 PA.
06/14/19374Chris Paddack
(SD - SP)
142 → 120 season total IP. Paddack has been sent to the minors despite pitching well to limit his innings this year, and possibly to extend his rookie contract.
06/14/19255Daniel Vogelbach
(SEA - 1B,DH)
95 → 300 PA.
06/06/19109Ryan Zimmerman
(WSH - 1B) IL10
300 → 200 PA. Zimmerman might return soon from missing time due to Plantar fasciitis, but it's unlikely the recurring problem won't sideline him again this season.
06/06/19137Alex Verdugo
(LAD - LF,CF) IL10
189 → 300 PA. Originally expected to return to the bench when AJ Pollock is healthy, Verdugo is making a strong case with his bat for more playing time.
06/05/1950Carlos Carrasco
(CLE - SP) IL60
19 → 6 GS. Carrasco is out indefinitely with a blood condition, but the team is hopeful he'll be able to return this season.
06/05/19-Andrew McCutchen
(PHI - LF,RF) IL60
Out for the season with a torn ACL.
06/03/19134Willie Calhoun
(TEX - LF)
148 → 280 PA. Updated with expectation that Calhoun will get plenty of time as a starter after returning from the IL.
05/29/19235Bryan Reynolds
(PIT - CF)
5 → 100 PA. .245/.294/.373 2HR 3SB, should see some playing time while Marte is on the IL with an uncertain timeline.
05/22/19652Griffin Canning
(LAA - SP) IL10
2 → 18 GS. Updated to reflect Cannings solid role in the rotation.
05/17/19-Brendan Rodgers
(COL - SS)
70 → 200 PA. Rodgers was called up to replace Garrett Hampson, and should have plenty of opportunity to hit with so many struggling bats around.
05/14/19-Matt Shoemaker
(TOR - SP) IL60
Out for season with torn ACL.
04/23/19254Erik Gonzalez
(PIT - 1B,2B,3B,SS)
382 → 183 PA. Out for at least two months with a broken collar bone.
04/20/19-Arodys Vizcaino
(ATL - RP) IL60
Out for season after elbow surgery.
04/08/19611Hunter Strickland
(WSH - RP)
18 → 4 SV. It's unlikely Strickland will get the closer role back right away when he returns.
04/02/1925Aaron Hicks
(NYY - CF) IL10
545 → 450 PA. Hicks won't return before late April with a back injury, and it will be hard to be confident in him staying healthy after that.
04/02/19456Jason Kipnis
(CLE - 2B,CF,DH)
531 → 480 PA. Expected back late April or early May from calf strain.
04/02/19510Matt Olson
(OAK - 1B)
494 → 410 PA. Out at least a month with a broken hand after being hit by a pitch.
04/02/19165Daniel Murphy
(COL - 1B,2B)
575→480 PA. Out at least a month with a broken finger.
04/02/19-Miguel Andujar
(NYY - 3B,DH) IL60
584-250 PA. Placed on IL with torn labrum that will cause an extended absence, possibly season-ending.
03/30/1960Justin Upton
(LAA - LF,DH)
601 → 375 PA. Out 8-12 week with toe injury. (PA reflects 10 weeks out)
