5/24/2017 Joc Pederson, LAD, CF
Pederson departed Tuesday's game against St. Louis after spraining his neck in an outfield collision with with teammate Yasiel Puig during the 10th inning.

Analysis: Pederson took an inadvertent elbow to the head from Puig as both players were attempting to chase down a deep fly ball off the bat of Yadier Molina. After remaining on the ground for a few minutes, Pederson walked off the field with the aid of team trainers while appearing a bit wobbly, then was removed for a pinch-hitter at the bottom of the inning.
5/24/2017 Darwin Barney, Tor, 2B
Barney was held out of Tuesday's game at Milwaukee due to a tight left hamstring.

Analysis: Jose Bautista started at third base for the first time since 2013 in his place. Barney isn't much of a fantasy option even when he's playing regularly, and he soon won't be with Josh Donaldson nearing a return.
5/24/2017 Dylan Covey, CWS, P
Covey was removed from Tuesday's start at Arizona after 2 1/3 innings due to tightness in his left oblique.

Analysis: The rookie, who fell to 0-4 in Chicago's 5-4 loss, surrendered four runs and five hits before departing. With an 8.12 ERA on the season, Covey isn't worth owning in even the deepest of fantasy leagues.
5/24/2017 Carlos Correa, Hou, SS
Correa was held out of Tuesday's game at Detroit, with Astros manager A.J. Hinch saying the star shortstop wasn't feeling well.

Analysis: It's unclear if Correa, who's 0 for 10 over his last three games, will be back in the lineup for Wednesday's matchup.
5/24/2017 Craig Stammen, SD, P
Craig Stammen allowed one run on three hits in 3.1 innings as the San Diego Padres lost to the New York Mets 9-3 on Tuesday. Stammen struck out two, ending the game with a 5.40 ERA and 1.43 WHIP on the season.
5/24/2017 Jhoulys Chacin, SD, P
Jhoulys Chacin fell to 4-4, allowing seven runs on eight hits in 0.2 innings, as the San Diego Padres lost to the New York Mets 9-3 on Tuesday. Chacin did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 5.74 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Coming off an excellent performance against Milwaukee, allowing just one run and two hits in seven innings, Chacin got only two outs in the shortest and worst of his 145 career starts over nine major league seasons. He next takes the ball Sunday at Washington, facing a Nationals team which leads the majors in runs, batting average and slugging. In his only start against Washington last season, he allowed five hits in six shutout innings.
5/24/2017 Matt Harvey, NYM, P
Matt Harvey improved to 3-3, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks in 5.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the San Diego Padres 9-3 on Tuesday. Harvey struck out six, ending the game with a 5.36 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: In his first home start since his suspension, Harvey earned his first win since April 11 at Philadelphia. The embattled former ace was 0-3 in his previous six starts and got banned three days by the Mets after skipping a home game this month following a late night on the town. He next takes the ball Sunday at Pittsburgh.
5/24/2017 Josh Smoker, NYM, P
Josh Smoker allowed one run on one hit in 1.0 inning as the New York Mets defeated the San Diego Padres 9-3 on Tuesday. Smoker struck out two, ending the game with a 7.94 ERA and 1.71 WHIP on the season.

5/24/2017 Paul Sewald, NYM, P
Paul Sewald allowed two hits without giving up a run in 1.0 inning as the New York Mets defeated the San Diego Padres 9-3 on Tuesday. Sewald struck out one, ending the game with a 2.51 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the season.
5/23/2017 Jesse Hahn, Oak, P
Hahn exited Tuesday's start against Miami after two-plus innings with a strained right triceps.

Analysis: The right-hander wasn't pitching well prior to departing and ended up being charged with five runs on seven hits. Hahn, who entered the game with a 3.02 ERA despite winning just one of his seven starts, could be facing a trip to the disabled list.
5/23/2017 Jerry Blevins, NYM, P
Jerry Blevins allowed one hit without giving up a run in 0.2 innings as the New York Mets defeated the San Diego Padres 9-3 on Tuesday. Blevins struck out two, ending the game with a 1.72 ERA and 1.02 WHIP on the season.
