Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Power surge continues Friday

News: Devers went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs Friday against the Yankees.

Devers blasted his seventh bomb of the year to give the Red Sox an early lead in a game they'd go on to win. He's now left the yard four times over his last five games, and since entering the lineup on July 25, he's rewarded fantasy managers with an amazing .356/.420/.699 slash line.

Yankees' Todd Frazier: Slugs 20th bomb of season Friday
Todd Frazier, 3B, NYY
10:25 PM
News: Frazier went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and two runs Friday against the Red Sox.

Frazier launched his 20th homer of the campaign to start a Yankees' rally that would eventually erase a three-run deficit, though the team would go on to lose. Despite his solid number of bombs, his batting average is toxic to most fantasy teams while his slugging percentage is sub-par as well.

Manny Machado
Orioles' Manny Machado: Crushes third grand slam of month Friday
Manny Machado, 3B, BAL
10:08 PM
News: Machado went 3-for-5 with a three homers and seven RBI Friday against the Angels.

Machado blasted homers in the third and fifth innings before balasting a walk-off grand slam. He's been tearing the cover off the ball this month, as he's hit eight bombs of his last 14 games to raise his slugging percentage to .494.

Jose Ramirez
Indians' Jose Ramirez: Forearm feeling better
Jose Ramirez, 3B, CLE
5:27 PM
News: Ramirez (forearm) took batting practice Friday and was withheld from the lineup as a precautionary measure, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Ramirez could be used off the bench Friday, but may receive the entire night off to ensure that he doesn't aggravate his forearm injury. However, owners should look for him to return to the lineup in the coming days.

Johan Camargo
Braves' Johan Camargo: Participates in baseball activities Friday
Johan Camargo, 3B, ATL
4:58 PM
News: Camargo (knee) was able to partake in some drills prior to Friday's game against the Reds, but is still likely a week away from embarking on a rehab assignment, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Camargo has been out for over a week while dealing with a right knee bone bruise after injuring it running onto the field. The infielder is going to need an extended period of time while recovering from this unlucky break, as he will likely wind up playing a few games in the minors on a rehab assignment before returning to Atlanta.

Analysis: 

Nolan Arenado
Rockies' Nolan Arenado: In lineup for series opener against Milwaukee
Nolan Arenado, 3B, COL
4:00 PM
News: Arenado will not miss any time after leaving Thursday's game with a hand injury.

Arenado's X-rays came back negative Thursday night after he was forced to exit the contest in the seventh inning after taking a sharply hit grounder off his hand. The third baseman was held out of Monday's game due to an injury on the same hand -- stemming from a hit by pitch against the Marlins on Sunday -- but he appears to be healthy enough to give it a go during a series with major implications for Colorado.

Analysis: 

Ryan McMahon
Rockies' Ryan McMahon: Shipped back to minors
Ryan McMahon, 3B, COL
3:55 PM
News: McMahon was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.

McMahon made a pair of starts and logged a couple appearances off the bench during his week-long stint with the big club, going 2-for-9 with a double, two walks and a strikeout. He figures to be back no later than Sept. 1, but an increase in playing time upon his return is not a given even with his .354/.401/.587 line at the upper levels of the minors this year. This move leaves Alexi Amarista and Pat Valaika as the Rockies' backup infielders.

Analysis: 

Wilmer Flores
Mets' Wilmer Flores: Returns to lineup Friday
Wilmer Flores, 3B, NYM
3:27 PM
News: Flores (ribs) is back in the lineup Friday against the Marlins.

Flores was able to avoid landing on the disabled list following a left rib injury that has forced him out of the lineup for the past two games. He will take over at first and bat in the cleanup spot for the series opener, but don't be surprised if he receives a couple days off here and there while fully recovering from the rib soreness. Since the All-Star break, Flores is hitting .292/.342/.625 with seven home runs and 13 RBI.

Analysis: 

Kyle Seager
Mariners' Kyle Seager: In Friday's lineup
Kyle Seager, 3B, SEA
2:28 PM
News: Seager (illness) is in the lineup Friday against the Rays, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

After missing two games, Seager is set to return to action. He'll start at third base and hit fifth Friday as he aims to improve his recent performance. In the month of August, Seager has slashed just .204/.264/.469.

Eduardo Escobar
Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Two RBI hits in nightcap
Eduardo Escobar, 3B, MIN
12:01 AM
News: Escobar went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in the nightcap of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Escobar produced an RBI single in the third inning and added an RBI double in the eighth. Both of those hits came tantalizingly close to doing even more damage, as each pushed an additional runner to third base. The versatile infielder had quite the day overall, finishing 4-for-9 with two doubles and three RBI between the two games.
