The most impactful injuries for my fantasy teams yesterday were to CarGo and Fowler who both left the early innings of yesterday's day game with what turned out to be minor injuries. Hopefully they'll be back today or at least some time this weekend. Unfortunately the news wasn't as good for Tulo owners as an MRI revealed a broken rib that will sideline him for 4-6 weeks. The upshot is that the widely available Josh Rutledge should be recalled from Triple A Colorado Springs where he had been mashing for a .348/.438/.565 line while improving his plate discipline to the tune of 8 BBs/11 Ks.

He should be an immediate add in fantasy for anyone in search of MI help, especially Tulo owners, and also makes a good preemptive grab for those who have been relying on Profar who figures to see his playing time cut considerably when Kinsler returns within the week.

Anniversaries: Chris Jaffe
  • 1876 George Hall becomes the first major leaguer to hit for the cycle.
  • 1921 Babe Ruth homers twice. It’s the second straight game he’s done that, and the fifth consecutive game he’s homered in.
  • 1924 George Kelly belts three homers in a game for the second time in his career. He’s the first person to do it twice. In all, he’s 4-for-4 with eight RBIs and a walk, guiding the Giants to a 8-6 win over the Reds. Yes, he drove in all of the team’s runs.
  • 1929 Yankee centerfielder Earle Combs legs out an inside the park home run for the second consecutive day.
  • 1932 The Yankees top the Indians, 7-6, thanks to a triple steal with Ben Chapman swiping home plate.
  • 1947 The Cubs win, giving them an all-time cumulative franchise peak record of 1,179 games over .500 (5,527-4,348).
  • 1952 The Braves sign Hank Aaron. (I also have this listed occurring on June 11. One of them must be correct).
  • 1953 The Yankees win their 18th consecutive game. There won’t be another winning streak this long in the AL until the 2002 Moneyball A’s.
  • 1959 Early Wynn, one of the better hitting pitchers, has his only four-hit day at the plate, going 4-for-5 with two doubles as the White Sox top the Orioles, 9-6.
  • 1961 Don Drysdale has a nice day, belting a home run and throwing a complete game shutout.
  • 1963 Duke Snider joins the 400 home run club. He’s just the ninth man to do so, joining Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, Lou Gehrig, Mel Ott, Stan Musial, Ted Williams, Eddie Mathews, and Mickey Mantle.
  • 1965 Jim Maloney has one of the greatest games to result in a loss. He has a no-hitter after nine innings, but the game is tied, so keeps going on. He allows a hit in the 11th and the Reds end up losing 1-0 to the Mets. Maloney has to settle for a Reds franchise record 18 strikeouts. He walks just one batter, Ed Kranepool in the fourth.
  • 1968 Hawk Harrelson hits three home runs in one game for the Boston Red Sox.
  • 1969 Reggie Jackson has a fantastic game, driving in 10 runs (!) on the day. He’s 5-for-6 with a double and two homers. His two singles both come with the bases loaded and drive in a pair of runs each. It’s the only five hit game of his career and (obviously) his personal best in RBIs. He could’ve had even more RBIs, too—his only out was a bases loaded strikeout. The A’s destroy the Red Sox, 21-7.
  • 1971 Joe Morgan receives a walk-off walk for a 5-4 Astros win over the Pirates.
  • 1974 It’s one of the most amazing pitching duels of all-time as Luis Tiant and Nolan Ryan go into overtime against each other. Tiant pitches 14.1 IP, the longest start of his career, only to get stuck with the loss as the Angels top the Red Sox, 4-3. Ryan pitches “only” 13 innings but fans 19 and walks 10 in the process. It’s the first of four times he fans 19 in a game in 1974. It’s Tiant’s ninth consecutive complete game, his personal best. It’s also the last time any starting pitcher has gone over 14 IP in a game.
  • 1976 Hank Aaron finally has a moment against Frank Tanana. In his 18th plate appearance against the fastballer, Aaron gets his first hit – which is a home run. It will be the only hit Aaron gets against Tanana in 19 PA, the most PA he has against a pitcher with just one hit. Also, this makes Tanana half the answer to a great trivia question, as he and Rick Reuschel are the only pitchers to surrender home runs to Barry Bonds and Hank Aaron.
  • 1978 Pete Rose begins his 44 game hitting streak.
  • 1978 Gaylord Perry shuts out the Padres. It’s the 22nd team he’s shut out, the most by any pitcher in history. (Nolan Ryan had 21).
  • 1978 Vida Blue walks the game’s first batter, something he last previously did on Aug. 14, 1974, 138 starts earlier.
  • 1987 Mike Schmidt gets his 2,000th career hit. He does it in style too, as it’ a three home run game for him.
  • 1988 For the second and final time in his career, Rafael Palmeiro plays centerfield.
  • 1989 Eric Show wins his 93rd game as a Padre, passing Randy Jones as the franchise’s all-time leader. He still is.
  • 1995 Manny Ramirez steals two bases in one game, the only time he ever does that.
  • 1995 Mike Benjamin, of all people, goes 6-for-7 in order to set a new record with 14 hits in his last three games. He’s 14-for-18 in that span.
  • 1996 Cal Ripken plays in his 2,216th consecutive game, breaking the record by Japanese iron man Sachio Kinugasa.
  • 1996 Jeff Bagwell nails four doubles in one game. It’s the only time he has more than two in one contest.
  • 2001 Wally Joyner appears in his final game.
  • 2005 Ichiro Suzuki gets his 1,000th hit in the North American major leagues. It took him just 696 games. He, Chuck Klein, and Lloyd Waner are the only guys since 1900 to reach this level in under 700 games.
  • 2006 Steve Finley crushes his 300th career home run.
  • 2006 Matt Clement plays in his last game.
  • 2007 Seattle releases former super-prospect Sean Burroughs.

I was and still am a Rutledge believer. He was sent down before his BABIP had a chance to stabilize, he was walking more, and striking out less than last season, which was partially why people were high on him to begin with. He was on pace for a 20/20 season and 100 Runs. I think he's going to be a very productive play at 2B/SS for the remainder of the season if they'll keep him in the lineup.

Yah I drafted him wherever I could but had to cut the cord when he got sent down, picked him back up in any leagues that I felt I had the need in the middle.

Any opinions on these three guys- all 1B/OF eligible would be appreciated. Rank please:

Mike Carp
Kyle Blanks
Tyler Colvin

All have at least some playing time concerns, but all are widely available and absolutely raking right now. I'm currently rostering Carp and Blanks in one of my deep bench teams, but I wonder if I might want to sneak Colvin in there for one of them.

Hmmmm they all are struggling for playing time. For now I would probably say Blanks Carp Colvin mainly because Cargo isn't headed to the DL and Blanks is the only one not fighting for playing time until Alonso comes back. If they all had consistent playing time I would probably rank them

Colvin
Carp
Blanks

Only because Colvin will get more rbi chances in Colorodo's lineup. Although Carp is very very close in my mind but I don't think he can keep this streak up... I just think long term Colvin has a little higher ceiling

Another homer for Joyce. In deep leagues, it's worth picking him up until he cools down.

Giancarlo Stanton looks like he's picking up right where he left off (on a tear) before getting hurt.
