Brant Tedeschi Apr 20th 5:31 PM EDT.

Preston Tucker is currently leading the NL in RBI. That's right, a guy you probably never heard of is currently in the league in the NL in RBI thanks in part to last night's big 5 RBI game against the New York Mets.

His season statline is currently sitting at .288 AVG, 3 HR, 18 RBI, and 8 RUNS. He is currently ranked 5th out of all major league left fielders and is projected by experts to end the season around 89th.

Jake Junis, the Kansas City Royals starting pitcher is soaring on the waiver wire today and is currently sitting in the top position for the day. For the season, he has a 1.93 ERA, 16/4 K/BB, 7.7 K/9, and a .80 WHIP.

He started the season with two solid starts, pitching 7 innings and giving up no runs while throwing 90 pitches or less. Then his outing on April 14th happened in which he only managed 4.2 innings and gave up 4 earned runs while striking out a season-high 7 batters.


Mike Napoli Out for Season

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 20th 4:15 PM EDT.

The news out of Cleveland is that first baseman Mike Napoli will undergo season ending surgery. Napoli suffered a torn right ACL and meniscus during a minor league game on Tuesday night.

The Cleveland Indians got great production out of Napoli in 2016, and decided to sign him to a minor league deal for 2018. Napoli was with the Texas Rangers last season and managed to hit 29 home runs. With Yonder Alonso being signed as the first baseman for the Indians, there wasn't a spot on the roster for Napoli.


Tristan Thompson Non Existent

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 19th 5:41 PM EDT.

The Cleveland Cavaliers tied the series up 1-1 versus the Indiana Pacers last night. Tristan Thompson was seen only riding the bench!

Thompson is not bringing much of anything to the floor for the Cavaliers. In game one Tristan only logged two minutes on the court. This year he has seen less playing time during the regular season as well as the playoffs.


Hernandez today's best waiver pickup

Brant Tedeschi Apr 19th 3:01 PM EDT.

Little known Teoscar Hernandez had a very big game yesterday against the Royals by coming a double shy of a cycle while adding four RBI and two runs scored.

"I got a little bit more experience last year, I got more confidence in Spring Training, and I just tried to stay focused and do the best that I can," Hernandez said. "When I got the call, I put in my mind that I got another chance to do what I know and to do my best. Keep getting better and try to get that chance to help the team."

Did you really think Shohei Ohtani could keep up his pace of perfection in the majors? Ohtani came back down to earth on Tuesday against the Boston Redsox.

Ohtani gave up 4 hits (one home run), 2 walks, 3 earned runs, and just one strikeout in 2 innings. His pitch count was only 66, and left his start early after dealing with blisters.

Ryu tops today's list of waiver wire trends

Brant Tedeschi Apr 16th 12:20 PM EDT.

Hyun-jin Ryu tops todays list of waiver wire trends with an increase of almost 12%. The reason is simple, he was lights out in his last start against the Oakland Athletics and he has two starts this week.

On April 10th against the A's, Ryu pitched 6 innings for 8 strikeouts, 1 walk, and no earned runs with 90 pitches. His season stats are currently a 2.79 ERA, 10/6 K/BB, 9.3 K/9, and a 1.24 WHIP. Keep in mind, he has only started two games in this young season.


Dez Bryant Released

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 13th 2:07 PM EDT.

The Dallas Cowboys have released wide receiver Dez Bryant after eight years with the team.

The announcement might come as a surprise to Cowboy fans, and it appears it was a surprise for Dez as well. He arrived at Dallas headquarters and was promptly told he was being released, he was not offered a pay cut to stay with the team. Dez has had a few slow seasons as of late, and hasn't been producing as a top receiver. The Cowboys had a great run game this season with Ezekiel Elliot and are hoping to keep that going.


Hoskins off to a hot start

Brant Tedeschi Apr 12th 12:27 PM EDT.

Rhys Hoskins is off to a hot start in 2018 and appears to be a bargain in most fantasy drafts at an average draft position of 46.

Hoskins is hitting 364 with two home runs, 6 RBI, and 7 runs scored. As you may recall, Hoskins was a fantasy hero last season to many teams and started off his career on a record-setting home run pace.
