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.
Castellanos is slashing just .220/.295/.382 and he's committed nine errors, tied for the second-most in baseball.
After a strong 2016, many were counting on a breakout 2017 for the young third baseman, but so far it's been a struggle. He's started every game this season and doesn't think fatigue is an issue, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. "I don't believe in that. I want to play tomorrow," Castellanos said. Still, a rest day or two might help him get back on track.
Forsythe went 1-for-5 with a walk-off RBI double in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Cardinals.
He struck out in his first four at-bats in his first game action since April 18, but that seemed to be enough to shake off the rust as Forsythe sliced a Jonathan Broxton fastball into the right-field corner to bring home Kiki Hernandez in the bottom of the 13th inning. Forsythe should see a full workload at third base with Justin Turner (hamstring) out until at least early June, but Chris Taylor's impressive play at second while Forsythe was on the DL could make for a crowded Dodgers infield once everyone is healthy.
Mahtook went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.
Mahtook's blast accounted for the only Detroit runs, as Lance McCullers and four Houston relievers shut the Tigers down. Mahtook is still slashing just .200/.259/.380, and he doesn't play enough to be much of a fantasy factor, despite some power potential.
Crowder delivered 18 points (6-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and four assists from 40 minutes in Tuesday's 112-99 Game 4 loss in Cleveland.
It was an admirable performance from Crowder as the C's try to make up for the loss of Isaiah Thomas (hip). Crowder led Boston with eight boards, but Cleveland out-rebounded Boston 37 to 29, highlighting an on-going problem for the Celtics. With Amir Johnson also out (shoulder), Crowder played some power forward in Boston's smaller lineups. Expect more big minutes from Crowder as the series returns to Boston Thursday for Game 5.
