Carlos Hernandez Kansas City Royals
05.20: Royals optioned RHP Carlos Hernández to Triple-A Omaha. (It's probably overdue, honestly, as Hernández has been dreadful all season. Brady Singer will stick around in the rotation.)

Luis Gil New York Yankees

The specifics are now very clear. Gil is booked for TJS on Tuesday. 

Tim McLeod tlmcleod
Matt Olson Atlanta Braves

Strangely, the HR have turned into doubles. 15 doubles in 141 AB so far. If he hits 60 doubles and only 16 HR I will be shocked by both tallies.

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed
Emmanuel Rivera Kansas City Royals

Rotoworld:

05.21: Emmanuel Rivera went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Twins.  (Trying to help spark a late-inning comeback in the bottom of the ninth, Rivera
hit a 105.7 mph solo home run off of Emilio Pagan, bringing the Royals
within two runs of tying the game. Rivera has a clear path to playing
time at third base for the time being. )

Eric Lauer Milwaukee Brewers

Eric Lauer (P) MIL - May. 20
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=14263

Lauer (4-1) allowed five hits through seven scoreless innings Friday, striking out five and earning the victory over Washington.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Lauer bounced back from his first loss of the season in dominant fashion Friday. He allowed just one extra-base hit and danced around a couple of threats by the Nationals. It was his second straight game without issuing a free pass as he improved his K:BB to an impressive 54:8 through 41.2 innings. Lauer will carry a 2.16 ERA into his projected start in San Diego next week.

Michael Chavis Pittsburgh Pirates

Michael Chavis (2B) PIT - May. 20
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=13378

Chavis went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Cardinals.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Chavis has drawn starts in the last four matchups, and he's recorded hits in each of those games. During that time, he's gone 7-for-13 with a homer, a double, two RBI and a run.

Manny Machado San Diego Padres

Tops MLB in war among hitters as of today (3.0 WAR so far per Fangraphs).

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Aaron Civale Cleveland Guardians

Aaron Civale (P) CLE - May. 20
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=14366

Civale exited Friday's game against the Tigers due to a left glute cramp, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Civale tweaked his glute while covering first base in the top of the seventh inning Friday, and he was immediately removed from the game. The right-hander will presumably be monitored by the team's medical staff in the coming days, but his initial diagnosis of a cramp is somewhat encouraging. If Civale is cleared to make his next turn through the rotation, he tentatively lines up to start on the road against Houston on Wednesday.

Matt Olson Atlanta Braves

Doing well, but he's (so far) no Freddie Freeman.

Kent Ostby Seadogs
Carter Kieboom Washington Nationals

BOOM goes the dyna .... uh ... UCL. Well, a clear cut for me on Sunday for PCL.

Aristides Aquino Cincinnati Reds

Aristides Aquino (OF) CIN - May. 20
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=13758

Aquino had his contract selected by the Reds on Friday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The 28-year-old has been with Triple-A Louisville since being designated for assignment three weeks ago, but he'll rejoin the Reds this weekend in Toronto with four players unable to travel and landing on the restricted list. Aquino has a .215 OPS and 53.5 percent strikeout rate in 43 plate appearances this year, so he'll likely head back to the minors after the trip to Canada.

Trent Grisham San Diego Padres

Grisham.

Aaron Nola Philadelphia Phillies

All the pitcher projections have gone missing. I've sent a note to Colin, but I know he doesn't have access to his desktop today.

Adley Rutschman Baltimore Orioles

Making his debut at Camden Yards today. I would expect Grayson Rodriguez to follow next week against the Mariners.  Something to look forward to over the next six years.

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed
Trent Grisham San Diego Padres

Can’t believe I am even asking this, but would you cut Vogelbach or Grisham to activate Gorman?

Aaron Nola Philadelphia Phillies

Why no projected stats line for 2022?

Stephen Strasburg Washington Nationals
Tosses three simulated innings
May 20, 2022
Strasburg (neck) threw 43 pitches over three innings during a simulated game Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
ANALYSIS
Strasburg threw two simulated innings late last week and continues to get closer to being cleared for a rehab assignment. The right-hander is expected to toss 60 pitches over four innings during his next throwing session, and that could occur with a minor-league affiliate.

Tommy Kahnle Los Angeles Dodgers
Facing shutdown
May 20, 2022
Kahnle underwent an MRI that revealed a strain in his forearm related to his Tommy John surgery that he underwent in 2020, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Kahnle returned to major-league game action in early May and posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in four innings over four relief appearances. The right-hander will be shut down for approximately two weeks before being reevaluated, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. However, manager Dave Roberts is optimistic that Kahnle will be back in action at some point this season.
