15DCliff Pennington 2B/SS/3B LAA 48 minutes ago

Pennington (hamstring) will be activated from the DL on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He showed the Angels enough in just two rehab games with High-A Inland Empire to convince them he's ready to return to the major leagues. Brendan Ryan was designated for assignment in anticipation of Pennington's return. Pennington is hitting just .217/.294/.370 this season, and with Gregorio Petit faring well of late, the 31-year-old may be relegated to a utility role upon activation.

Mike Wright SP BAL 48 minutes ago

Wright allowed three runs on six hits, walking two and striking out four, but lasted just 4.2 innings and came away with a no-decision against Cleveland on Friday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wright saw his ERA drift up to 5.05 on the season while again failing to take the team deep into the game. He tossed 99 pitches (60 for strikes) but didn't get out of the fifth inning. He'll take on a tough Boston lineup in Baltimore next time out, but he'll have to be more efficient to make himself fantasy relevant going forward.

Gregor Blanco OF/DH SF 49 minutes ago

Blanco went 1-for-4 with an RBI against the Rockies on Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran outfielder is not San Francisco's biggest threat in the lineup, but he made his presence felt with his second RBI of the past 10 games. Blanco has gone 5-for-13 in a modest three-game hitting streak, and his average climbed to .244 as a result.

Tony Wolters C COL 53 minutes ago

Wolters drove in a run and scored another run in a 2-for-4 Friday against the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wolters is not known for his offense, but he made his presence felt with his first multi-hit game since May 14. The 23-year-old has hit a mere .195 this year, and he will have value as long as he's able to put the ball in play.

Brendan Ryan 2B/SS/3B LAA 56 minutes ago

Ryan was designated for assignment by the Angels after Friday's game, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With Cliff Pennington (hamstring) ready to return from the DL, the team went ahead and bumped Ryan, who failed to record a hit in 11 at-bats with the Angels. Now 34 years old, Ryan may have played his last game in the majors, but he's capable of filling an organizational depth need.

Trevor Story SS COL 56 minutes ago

Story went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI Friday against the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The rookie shortstop has looked pretty comfortable in the seventh spot in the lineup, where he's gone 3-for-8 in the last two games. Strikeouts will always be an issue for him, but his power (13 home runs and 29 total extra-base hits) and ability to produce runs (35) more than make up for his lack of contact.

Charlie Blackmon LF/CF COL 1 hour ago

Blackmon went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run Friday against the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The center fielder has been pretty hot of late, with hits in nine of the last 10 games and a .333 average over that span. Blackmon now has a five-game hitting streak to his name, and five of his 15 hits have gone for extra bases, so he's been doing a lot of damage at the top of the lineup in recent weeks.

Nolan Arenado 3B COL 1 hour ago

Arenado went 1-for-4 with an RBI Friday against the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The third baseman has hit safely in five of the last 10 games, but he's gone a mere 7-for-36 (.194) over that span, so Colorado clearly needs more production out of him. A silver lining is the fact that Arenado has driven runs in the last two games, and he's one of the NL leaders in that department with 36.

Jake McGee RP COL 1 hour ago

McGee pitched one-third of an inning to record his 14th save against the Giants on Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

McGee recorded the save with only two pitches - both thrown for strikes - as he induced a Kelby Tomlinson pop out to end the game. McGee has been pretty dependable as Colorado's closer, converting 14 of 16 saves opportunities to the tune of a 3.38 ERA.

Steve Pearce 1B/2B/LF TB 1 hour ago

Pearce was 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Yankees on Friday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The utility-man's eighth home run didn't come until the ninth inning, and was too-little, too-late, but his .297 average with 20 RBI, and very useful multiple position eligibility have been a nice asset for fantasy teams.
