Anthony Santander went 2-for-4 with one double, one single, one RBI, and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Santander is 2-for-12 since coming off the IL on July 30th. He's not a consideration in fantasy right now.

Ryan Mountcastle went 2-for-4 with one run scored, one double, one single, and one RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Mountcastle hit the ball hard four times. He had a miserable July, slashing .205/.286/.370 in 73 at-bats, but he's got five hits in his last nine at-bats, so maybe he's getting hot again.

Spenser Watkins allowed four runs on three hits, two walks, and four strikeouts in five and two-thirds innings.

Fantasy Impact: Watkins got eight whiffs on 89 pitches, allowed three hard-hit balls, and topped out at 91.8 MPH. He's not someone managers need to worry about for fantasy.

Fantasy Impact: Scott, 27, is 4-4 with a 3.95 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and .200 OBA through 48 relief outings this year. The southpaw has amassed 14 holds but is 0-for-2 during save opportunities. He has walked 31 batters and struck out 59 this year.

Alex Wells allowed four runs on seven hits, three walks, and four strikeouts in five innings.

Fantasy Impact: Wells has a 5.28 ERA this season and is not a consideration in fantasy.

Pedro Severino went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Severino is hitting .229 with a .654 OPS this season. He's not rosterable, even in two-catcher leagues.

Trey Mancini went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, one walk, and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Mancini is having a great July (.324/.375/.635) after an albatross June (.208/.286/.327). He's put together a modest ten-game hitting streak and is in the 87th-percentile in xwOBA. It's been a fantastic comeback season for the 29-year-old.

Jorge Lopez allowed five runs on seven hits, two walks, and two strikeouts in two innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Lopez has a 6.19 ERA and 1.68 WHIP this season. The 28-year-old is not a consideration in fantasy.

Cedric Mullins went 2-for-4 with one run scored, one single, one home run, and one RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Mullins is slashing .304/.329/.522 in 69 at-bats this month. He's been great this season and is in the running for Waiver Wire pickup of the year in most leagues.

Cole Sulser recorded one out and got a save.

Fantasy Impact: Sulser came into the game with the Orioles down by one run, two on, and two outs in the top of the ninth. He got Josh Bell to ground out to end the threat, and the Orioles won the game in the bottom of the inning.

Ryan McKenna went 2-for-4 with one RBI, one single, one home run, one strikeout, and two runs.

Fantasy Impact: McKenna is hitting .183 with a .536 OPS this season.

John Means allowed four runs on five hits, one walk, and two strikeouts in six and two-thirds innings.

Fantasy Impact: Means hasn't had good results since coming back from the IL, allowing nine runs in 11 and 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back on track against the Tigers on Saturday.

Dillon Tate allowed one hit and two strikeouts in one inning.

Fantasy Impact: Tate's first save came all the way back on June 30th. He's got a 4.10 ERA this season.

Category: Game Recaps


Matt Harvey allowed zero runs on one hit and four strikeouts in six innings. He's put together back-to-back six-inning, shutout performances and looks to be heating up with a 3.45 ERA in July.

Fantasy Impact: Harvey allowed two hard-hit balls, got nine whiffs, and topped out at 95.7 MPH in his best start of the season.

Ramon Urias went 1-for-4 with one run scored, one single, one strikeout, and two RBIs.

Fantasy Impact: Urias had one hard-hit ball in the contest. He's filled in admirably for the injured Freddy Galvis - slashing .285/.350/.415 in 130 at-bats this season. He's not a consideration in standard redraft leagues, but maybe shortstop-needy managers in deeper AL-only leagues can add him while he's playing every day.

Pat Valaika went 2-for-3 at the bottom of the Orioles lineup with two solo home runs.

Fantasy Impact: Valaika has three home runs in the past two games and, as such, should be considered in DFS on Saturday. He's a career .222/.268/.391 hitter, so this hot streak isn't expected to last, but managers should at least check the box score on Saturday to see if he can keep it going.

Paul Fry was perfect on Friday with three strikeouts in one, and one-third innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Fry was the first man out of the bullpen and finished off the fifth inning before pitching the sixth in a game the Orioles won 6-1. He's not considered in standard redraft leagues, but with nine holds and two saves, he has some value in holds + saves leagues.
