Angels' Huston Street: On for spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Braves' Brandon Phillips: Pops sixth homer Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 5-4 win over the Brewers.

The groin tweak that took him out of Thursday's game early was no issue for the veteran second baseman. Phillips now has six homers on the season with three of them coming in June, a month in which he also sports a .319 (29-for-91) batting average with 10 RBI and 16 runs in 21 games.

Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Picks up first save Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vizcaino gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his first save of the season in Friday's 5-4 win over the Brewers.

A leadoff double by Eric Thames made things interesting, but Vizcaino kept his cool and got out of the jam. The 26-year-old only got the call in the ninth because Jim Johnson has pitched in three of the last four games and was unavailable, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Braves gradually begin to work Vizcaino into the closer mix in anticipation of a deadline deal involving Johnson.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Tosses six shutout innings in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter (1-0) fired six shutout innings, allowed just three hits and a walk and struck out five batters in his first win Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Leiter was unremarkable in his time in the Phillies bullpen (4.74 ERA, 12:14 K:BB), but he looked awfully sharp in his first start against one of the better lineups in the National League. He needed just 81 pitches to go the six innings and managed to keep the ball in the yard while inducing eight flyouts. Leiter managed a brilliant 27:4 K:BB in his three starts back at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, so it's possible that he's simply better suited to a starting role. Leiter will likely keep getting chance to prove that hypothesis until Jerad Eickhoff returns from injury.

Braves' Mike Foltynewicz: Whiffs nine in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foltynewicz (5-5) allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out nine over five innings in Friday's 5-4 win over the Brewers.

He didn't last long enough for a quality start due to rain and a high pitch count, but Foltynewicz continued his recent run of success nonetheless as he's given up two runs or less in four of five starts in June while posting a 3.49 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB in 28.1 innings on the month. The 25-year-old is still a volatile fantasy play due to his control issues, but his strikeout potential makes him a high-risk, high-reward option in many formats. He gets a strong matchup in his next start Thursday on the road against a Padres squad that leads the majors in strikeout percentage against right-handed pitchers.
