Bryce Harper    OF   Washington Nationals
Harper scored four runs and an RBI despite not registering a hit in Thursday's lopsided victory over the Braves.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Harper was pulled in the sixth inning after walking four times, officially ending his night without an actual at-bat. Even crazier is that he didn't swing the bat once, all strikes against him were called. This is just the fourth time in MLB history that a player scored at least four runs without an official at-bat. Harper's explosion in walk rate has been one of the stories of his breakout season, thanks both to highly improved plate discipline and fear from opposing pitchers.
Edinson Volquez    P   Kansas City Royals
Volquez was bombed for six runs on eight hits and a walk in just three innings against Detroit on Thursday.

Jose Iglesias    SS   Detroit Tigers
Iglesias left Thursday's game against the Royals after being hit on the right hand by a pitch in the top of the third inning, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It looked like the Edinson Volquez pitch got Iglesias on the fingers as he squared up to bunt, and the 25-year-old appeared in significant pain as he left the field. Andrew Romine came into the game to replace Iglesias at short and would likely be in line for starts at the position if Iglesias is forced to miss additional time.
Bryce Harper    OF   Washington Nationals
Harper was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning of Thursday's game against the Braves with the Nationals up 12-1.

Josh Johnson    P   San Diego Padres
Johnson (elbow) will pitch one inning for High-A Lake Elsinore on Friday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

His recovery from Tommy John surgery No. 2 has, predictably, been a slow one, as several setbacks have kept him off the mound entirely to this point in the season. Johnson will finally pitch for an affiliate Friday, and it seems the Padres may look to get him on the major league roster at some point in the final month, but it's impossible to know what he'll bring to the table after nearly two years away from the game.
Corey Hart    1B   Pittsburgh Pirates
Hart (shoulder) will not return this season.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The 33-year-old has returned from his rehab assignment but will not be activated, as the Pirates evidently didn't see enough in his six games with Triple-A Indianapolis to warrant a return to the major league roster. Signed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal last winter, Hart ended up playing in just 35 games with Pittsburgh, going 12-for-54 (.222 average) with two homers, nine RBI and a 1:19 BB:K.
Andy Wilkins    1B   Los Angeles Dodgers  (AAA)
Wilkins was designated for assignment Thursday, Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports.

Yonder Alonso    1B   San Diego Padres
Alonso (back) is out of the lineup Thursday against the Dodgers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Alonso's ailing back will keep him out of the lineup for the second consecutive game Thursday after the issue flared up on him at the end of Tuesday's contest. Brett Wallace will take over at first base Thursday.
Chris Heston    P   San Francisco Giants
Heston will start Friday against the Rockies, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Derek Norris    C   San Diego Padres
Norris (shoulder) is in the lineup Thursday against the Dodgers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The catcher was expected to miss a few games after aggravating a shoulder injury Wednesday, but he'll tough it out and remain behind the plate for the Padres' series opener against the Dodgers. While it's a good sign that he's back in the lineup Thursday, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if he gets rested for a game over the weekend to allow Rocky Gale or Austin Hedges to get some at-bats.
Yimi Garcia    P   Los Angeles Dodgers
Garcia was recalled by the Dodgers on Thursday, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports.

Corey Seager    SS   Los Angeles Dodgers
Seager will make his major league debut Thursday, batting eighth in the order and playing short stop against the Padres.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Seager, the Dodgers' highest touted prospect in most circles, will make his long awaited debut Thursday. He posted strong numbers across two levels this season with a .292/.343/.486 slash line, 18 home runs, and 74 RBI at Double-A and Triple-A. Seager will face Colin Rea on Thursday, who is a highly thought of prospect in the Padres organization in his own right.
Brandon Crawford    SS   San Francisco Giants
Crawford (calf) is out of the lineup Thursday against the Rockies.
