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.
Pinder (hamstring), who went 0-for-3 with a walk in Triple-A Nashville's loss to New Orleans on Sunday, is 2-for-13 with a solo home run and two walks over four rehab games with the Sounds.
The rehabbing infielder may be struggling with his offense, but he's suffered no setbacks with his hamstring and remains on track to potentially return for next weekend's series versus the Twins. Pinder will likely find playing time a bit scarcer when he returns now that Marcus Semien is back and handling the shortstop position on any everyday basis. However, a move of Jed Lowrie before the trade deadline would open up ample opportunity at second base.
Vieira notched his first save in Triple-A Tacoma's win over Sacramento on Sunday, firing a clean ninth inning.
Vieira got 10 of his 15 pitches into the strike zone and as per Rainiers broadcaster Mike Curto, he became the first pitcher to hit 100 mph on the radar gun at Tacoma this season. The 24-year-old made his Rainiers debut on Thursday and surrendered an earned run on one hit over 1.2 innings against Albuquerque while notching three strikeouts.
Davis collected his 20th save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.
Davis had the pleasure of closing out the final two games of Chicago's three-game set with the Cards, improving his ERA to 2.12 to go with a 1.12 WHIP. The former Ray and Royal has been a solid ninth-inning man in his first year with the Cubs, as he's yet to blow a save and has fanned as many batters (47) in 33 innings as he did all of last year with Kansas City.
Garcia recorded a strikeout and didn't allow a baserunner during a scoreless ninth inning to record his first save of the season in Sunday's win over Milwaukee.
Hector Neris had pitched in each of the past two games, so that's likely why Garcia entered in the ninth for the save opportunity. However, the Philadelphia closer job has been somewhat fluid all season, so it isn't out of the question that Garcia sees more work closing out games moving forward. He should at least be on your fantasy radar, and especially if you're chasing saves.
