As the July 17 Draft signing deadline nears, get the complete breakdown of which top picks have agreed to terms, and for how much.
Welcome to DraftKings fantasy baseball, the Official Daily Fantasy Game of Major League Baseball. The players listed below could provide difference-making stats for DraftKings participants on Wednesday.
Wednesday packs a big punch with games spread out over the course of the day. Here are five things to watch for.
The pitch from Carter Capps that wound up deciding Tuesday night's game between the Red Sox and Marlins came in to Xander Bogaerts, who is an Esurance MLB All-Star Game Final Vote candidate, at 99 mph. At least that's what the radar gun reading was on the offering Bogaerts ripped into right-center for a rare three-run single that led the Red Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Marlins.
Yoenis Cespedes could make a home run derby out of facing Mariners pitching. He'd settle for making an All-Star team. The way he has swung the bat the last couple of nights at Safeco Field can't be hurting his 2015 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Final Vote case at all.
Sometimes in elections, talk is cheap for a candidate with the voters. It's better to prove yourself on the job and in the arena. Reds ace Johnny Cueto certainly accomplished that on Tuesday night vs. the Nationals.
The 2015 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Final Vote is underway to determine the last spot on the American League and National League rosters and, as usual, there are some very difficult choices on the ballots.
The typical expectations of age don't seem to apply to Carlos Correa's family. His father, Carlos Sr., began working construction at the age of 13 and married Carlos' mother, Sandybel, when he was 16 and she was 14. Carlos Jr. was born two years later, and he began helping his father on job sites when he was just 8.
One year ago, Clayton Kershaw was being hailed as not just baseball's best pitcher but as the game's most dominant southpaw since the prime of Sandy Koufax.
In a matchup against Max Scherzer and the first-place Washington Nationals, Johnny Cueto lifted his game to another level - perhaps that of an All-Star. Cueto pitched a two-hitter with 11 strikeouts, Joey Votto homered and drove in three runs and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Nationals 5-0 Tuesday night. The potential pitching duel between Cueto and Scherzer never materialized.
In a four-game series between the Dodgers and Phillies that doubles as a reunion tour, it was Chad Billingsley's turn to beat his old mates in a 7-2 win for Philadelphia at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night.
Robinson Cano smacked a walk-off single in the 11th inning as the Mariners won a slugfest against the Tigers, 7-6, on Tuesday night at Safeco Field to even the three-game series at one game apiece.
Corey Kluber looked and acted like he always does after a game, stoic and sedate. Kluber shut down Houston for 6 2-3 innings and got his first win since May 28, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 2-0 victory over the Astros on Tuesday night. Despite pitching well enough to win, Kluber (4-9) went 0-4 with two no-decisions in his previous six starts.
Robinson Cano lined an RBI single into the right-field corner with one out in the 11th inning, giving the Seattle Mariners a 7-6 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Cano lined a 2-1 pitch from Detroit left-hander Ian Krol (1-2) that one-hopped off the wall. It was the first walk-off hit for Cano since Aug. 28, 2009, with the New York Yankees.
Albert Pujols' sons were pressing their father to take part in the All-Star Home Run Derby. Pujols, the Los Angeles Angels' first baseman, says he talked with Major League Baseball and confirmed he will be one of the hitters for the event Monday in Cincinnati. ''I'm going to give it one last chance,'' Pujols said Tuesday.
Chad Billingsley felt at home kicking the dirt on the mound at Dodger Stadium. Pitching in a comfort zone, Billingsley won for the first time in over two years, helping the last-place Philadelphia Phillies beat his old team, NL West-leading Los Angeles, 7-2 Tuesday night. My whole time with the Dodgers was special.
Indians right-hander Corey Kluber continued to receive little in the way of run support, but he took matters into his own hands by shutting out the Astros over 6 2/3 innings in a 2-0 victory at Progressive Field on Tuesday evening.
Behind a wild three-run seventh inning, the Cubs rallied to beat the Cardinals, 5-3, in Game 2 of a doubleheader on Tuesday night. Chicago won Game 1, 7-4, for its first doubleheader sweep at Wrigley Field since Sept. 27, 2003, against Pittsburgh.
Heavy rain came during the Pirates' 3-2 win over the Padres on Tuesday, and some players lent a helping hand to the grounds crew putting the tarp on the field.
Gregory Polanco had the go-ahead hit in the eighth inning after helping with a save in the third. Polanco helped free a grounds crew member trapped underneath a billowing tarp, then hit a triple that sent the Pittsburgh Pirates past the San Diego Padres 3-2 Tuesday night. Polanco and fellow Pirates outfielders Andrew McCutchen and Sean Rodriguez made the play of the game at the start of a 1 hour, 42 minute rain delay in the top of the third inning.
