  • Steven Duggar

    San Francisco Giants

    Steven Duggar (back) scratched Wednesday; Mike Yastrzemski replaces

    Duggar has been scratched from the San Fransisco Giants original confirmed lineup and will not start in Wednesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Dodger due to lower back tightness. He’ll be replaced in the lineup by Mike Yastrzemski, who will now play right field and slot directly into Duggar’s vacated eighth spot in the order. However, the remainder of the Giants lineup will stay intact offensively as they face off against left-hander Rich Hill on the road this evening.

    Garrett Cooper (triceps) scratched Wednesday; Yadiel Rivera replaces

    Cooper has been scratched from the Miami Marlins original confirmed lineup and will not start in Wednesday’s matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals due to sore left triceps. He’ll be replaced in the lineup by Yadiel Rivera, who will now play first base and slot into the seventh spot in the order, which shuffles quite a few players around in the Marlins batting order but, most notably, bumps Curtis Granderson all the way up to second, respectively. Therefore, be sure to double-check the Starting Lineups page for the updated lineup as Miami faces off against right-hander Daniel Ponce de Leon at home this evening.

    Houston Astros

    Start of HOU-CIN will be delayed due to rain Wednesday

    The start of the matchup between the Houston Astros and Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday afternoon will be delayed due to rain. There’s yet to be any confirmation of an official start time, and the Reds have not yet committed to a specific timeline for providing further updates. The definitive late start is potentially better news for the prospects of starting pitchers like Gerrit Cole not being pulled from the game early because of a mid-game stoppage, and as Kevin Roth detailed in the latest update to his MLB weather forecast, he expects this game to play through following the initial weather delay barring some incredibly bad luck with pop-up storms.

    Start of HOU-CIN will be delayed due to approaching inclement weather Tuesday

    The start of the matchup between the Houston Astros and Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday evening will be delayed due to inclement weather approaching the stadium. There’s yet to be any confirmation of an official start time, and the Reds have not yet committed to a specific timeline for providing further updates.

    The start of the matchup between the Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals on Tuesday evening will be delayed due to inclement weather. There’s yet to be any confirmation of an official start time, and the Nationals have not yet committed to a specific timeline for providing further updates. The definitive late start is potentially better news for the prospects of starting pitchers like Patrick Corbin not being pulled from the game early because of a mid-game stoppage, but as Kevin Roth detailed in the latest update to his MLB weather forecast, there is certainly a legitimate chance of a late postponement given the Nationals spotty track record in waiting out weather delays.

    Benintendi has been scratched from the Boston Red Sox original confirmed lineup and will not start in Sunday’s matchup against the Baltimore Orioles due to a presently unspecified reason. He’ll be replaced in the lineup by Marco Hernandez, who will now play second base and slot into the ninth spot in the order, which shuffles quite a few players around in the Red Sox batting order but, most notably, bumps Christian Vazquez all the way up to second, respectively.

  • Kevon Looney will start at center

    Looney getting the start here might make both he and Cousins slightly more appealing, as it is unlikely Gasol will be very focused on containing Looney’s offensive game, and will allow Cousins to be more ball-dominant with the second unit.

  • Kevon Looney

    Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney is expected to play

    Looney, he of the fractured collarbone, will tough it out and play tonight. It is as of yet unclear whether he or DeMarcus Cousins will get the start, but Looney can be expected to get a decent amount of run regardless of who actually starts, as the Warriors are in need of his toughness and size against the Gasol/Ibaka duo from Toronto. His presence will allow Cousins to be used in shorter bursts, which may actually make Cousins more effective. Both Looney and Cousins can be considered salary saving options for tonight’s game.

There’s yet to be any confirmation of an official start time, and the Royals have not yet committed to a specific timeline for providing further updates.
