Street (knee) is making his 2017 Cactus League debut Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Coming off a 6.45 ERA during (surprise) an injury-shortened 2016, Street is battling for the closer role with Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey, among others. His body of work and name recognition may land him the job initially, but it's wise for fantasy players to remain skeptical, especially considering his health issues and the talent Bedrosian boasts when healthy.
Jaso started Saturday night's game in right field in place of the injured Gregory Polanco, going 0-for-3 with a walk.
Jaso also replaced Polanco on Friday night when Polanco got hurt. He had started to get more time ahead of Adam Frazier and Jose Osuna when Starling Marte was still serving his suspension. He's hitting just .222/.309/.407 on the season, not exactly the production you'd hope for from a corner outfielder.
Gordon went 2-for-5 with two stolen bases and a run during Saturday's win over Cincinnati.
Gordon is now up to 34 stolen bases for the year, and his .290 batting average and 58 runs are also excellent marks. Obviously, the leadoff hitter offers nothing in the power categories, but that was also never an advertised asset. More of the same is likely ahead for the speedster.
Odorizzi, who'll start Sunday's series finale versus the Rangers, plans to continue throwing from the stretch exclusively for the time being, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The decision comes as a result of the success the right-hander encountered in a 3-2 win over the Athletics last Monday, one in which he fired seven innings of one-hit ball. According to Odorizzi, the fact that the stretch forces him to limit his movements prior to the pitch led to across-the-board improvements in his performance. While some pitchers feel they lose power when pitching out of the stretch, Odorizzi's repertoire isn't overly reliant on his fastball, which clocks in just over 90 mph on average.
Realmuto went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI during Saturday's win.
Realmuto is providing high-end numbers from the catcher position with a .305/.361/.475 slash line, 10 homers, 39 RBI, five stolen bases and 41 runs. He entered Saturday's game with the fourth-most plate appearances (328) among all catchers, so his hefty role also provides a high fantasy floor.
