The rash of high-profile baseball injuries continued on Saturday, when Philadelphia OF/DF Bryce Harper fractured his thumb on an inside pitch from Blake Snell. Those that have relied on Harper throughout the season must now consider other options in the Philadelphia outfield or other names altogether in the MLB DFS player pool. The player that stands to get the most consistent work in Harper’s place is Matt Vierling, who over his last seven appearances from June 16 to June 25, has seven total hits and two home runs.
A player from a different team that could be worth thinking about for MLB DFS lineups on Sunday is Texas outfielder Adolis Garcia, who is currently riding a seven-game hitting streak. The Rangers have a favorable matchup against Washington starting pitcher Jackson Tetreault, who has given up 10 total runs in his only two appearances this season. Over Garcia’s last five games, he has six total hits, with a double, two home runs and three RBI.
