Anthony Rendon (wrist) to undergo season-ending surgery

Angels 3B Anthony Rendon will undergo season-ending surgery to repair his right wrist early next week, the team announced on Twitter Friday afternoon. (Source: Los Angeles Angels on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rendon has appeared in just 155 games over the last three seasons with the Angels, though one of those is the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. He has slashed .252 / .359 / .421 with 20 home runs and 91 RBI over those 155 games. Injuries have unfortunately become a recurring issue for Rendon, who turned 32 less than two weeks ago. He has four years and $ 154M left on his contract with the Angels. Infielders Luis Rengifo and Matt Duffy figure to see time at third base for Los Angeles in the short term.

Riley Greene (fractured foot) to make a debut Saturday against Rangers

Fantasy Impact: Greene will look to make an immediate impact for a Tigers lineup that has underwhelmed all season. The 21-year-old posted 24 home runs and 16 stolen bases between Double-A and Triple-A during the 2021 season. The prospect should be immediately picked up in all fantasy formats.

Fantasy Impact: Bichette had X-rays on the foot that came back negative, so the Blue Jays are likely just playing it safe with their shortstop. Look for Bichette to return to the lineup sometime this weekend. He’s hitting .302 / .348 / .465 over his last 10 games.

Tylor Megill (shoulder) placed on IL

Tylor Megill has been placed on the 15-day IL with a right shoulder strain. He will be shut down for 4 weeks before being re-evaluated. (Source: Tim Britton on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Megill was only able to make 2 starts before heading back to the IL. This seems not to be a minor issue if the Mets are shutting him down for at least 4 weeks. Megill was great early in the year, but now holds a 5.01 ERA and an AVG exit velocity in the 37th percentile. He can be dropped in most leagues if you need the roster space.
