  • Tyler Cravy called up for Friday's start
    Brewers recalled RHP Tyler Cravy from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: The Brewers need him to make a spot start Friday against the Reds. Wily Peralta (paternity) is only expected to miss one start, so it should be one and done for Cravy. The 26-year-old appeared in five games for Milwaukee earlier this year, compiling a 3.18 ERA while working out of the bullpen. Rotoworld.com 46 minutes ago

  • Wily Peralta placed on paternity leave
    Brewers placed RHP Wily Peralta on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Peralta's daughter was born on Thursday. Tyler Cravy was called up Triple-A Colorado Springs and will start in Peralta's place Friday against Cincinnati. Peralta should be fine to make his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Marlins. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago

  • Kyle Lohse throwing for teams at UC-Irvine
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse is throwing for teams Thursday at UC-Irvine.

    Advice: Heyman didn't mention which teams will be in attendance but the Orioles, Reds and Tigers are known to be interested. Lohse bottomed out last year, contributing a miserable 5.85 ERA over 37 outings (22 starts) for Milwaukee. The 37-year-old has thrown 2,522 1/3 career innings for five teams since debuting in 2001.

  • White Sox recall Erik Johnson from AAA
    White Sox recalled RHP Erik Johnson from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Johnson will start Thursday against the Red Sox in place of veteran left-hander John Danks, who was pushed off Chicago's 40-man roster earlier this week. Johnson holds a rough 4.17 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 6.9 K/9 in 86 1/3 career major league innings and probably won't be worth a fantasy stream at any point. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:28 pm
  • Luebke (hamstring) earns three-inning save
    Cory Luebke (hamstring) earned a three-inning save in a rehab appearance Wednesday at Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Those three innings were scoreless and Luebke struck out four. The left-hander has been on the disabled list since April 14 because of a right hamstring strain. He should return to the Bucs' bullpen soon, or at least that should be an option soon. Pittsburgh could officially option the oft-injured Luebke to the minors once his rehab assignment has concluded.

  • Adam Morgan allows three runs in fifth
    Adam Morgan yielded three runs in four-plus innings Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Morgan made it look pretty easy for four innings, allowing just two hits. Then the fifth started and he failed to retire any of the five hitters he faced before being yanked, giving up four hits and a walk. Fortunately, Colton Murray came in and stranded both baserunners he inherited, protecting Morgan's ERA from further damage. Still, he's at 6.00 in two starts since his callup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:45 pm
  • Wilson tosses quality start in loss
    Tyler Wilson only allowed three runs (two earned) in six innings against the Yankees on Wednesday, but still suffered his first loss of the season.

    Advice: Wilson contributed to his own downfall in the sixth inning. His throwing error allowed the third run to cross, but he got the ever-struggling Aaron Hicks to ground out to limit the damage. It was nice to see him throw 96 pitches in his third start since transitioning from the bullpen. However, the right-hander has a 4.94 K/9 and isn't fantasy relevant in any league, as his margin for error is just too small to work over an extended period of time. If he gets another start, he'll face the Twins on the road on Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:05 pm
  • Medlen crushed for nine runs by Nats
    Kris Medlen was crushed for nine runs -- six earned -- over two-plus innings Wednesday in a loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Washington pounced for six runs in the top of the first inning and four more in the third, eventually winning 13-2 in the matinee at Kauffman Stadium. The ugly, ugly loss pushes Medlen's record to 1-3 and his ERA to 6.85. He simply needs to be better next week at Yankee Stadium. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:28 pm
  • Davies allows two runs over six to Angels
    Zach Davies allowed two earned runs over six innings Wednesday in the Brewers' loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Milwaukee's bullpen -- Tyler Thornburg, to be exact -- turned in a close game into a late rout. Davies struck out three, walked three, and gave up five hits in what wound up as a no-decision. He'll carry a 6.98 ERA into his next start on the road against the Marlins. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:13 pm
  • Indians outright Ross Detwiler to AAA level
    Indians sent LHP Ross Detwiler outright to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Detwiler was designated for assignment by the Tribe at the end of April and accepted the Triple-A demotion after passing through waivers unclaimed. He had a 5.79 ERA in seven relief appearances this season for Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:41 pm

  • Thompson dominates in Tuesday's no-decision
    Phillies RHP prospect Jake Thompson turned in his best start of the year Tuesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, allowing just two hits, two walks and one run over seven innings.

    Advice: He contributed four strikeouts while lowering his season ERA from 6.16 to 4.85. Tuesday was his longest outing of the season. Thompson induced 10 groundouts including two double plays. It's been an up-and-down year for the 22-year-old. The former second-round pick owns a 1.31 WHIP to go with an equally underwhelming 7.61 K/9. Maybe Tuesday's impressive showing was a sign that he's ready to turn the corner. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:52 am

  • Jose De Leon dominates in first start of 2016
    Dodgers RHP prospect Jose De Leon recorded nine strikeouts over five scoreless frames Tuesday in his season debut for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: De Leon missed the first month while recovering from a sprained ankle. He didn't miss a beat in his return, holding New Orleans to two hits and one walk. He got the hook from manager Bill Haselman after throwing 88 pitches. The Zephyrs took the lead against reliever Luis Avilan in the seventh, forcing De Leon to settle for a no-decision. The 23-year-old from Puerto Rico is considered the Dodgers' second-best prospect behind left-hander Julio Urias. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:57 am

  • Matt Andriese fans 14 in no-decision Tuesday
    Rays RHP prospect Matt Andriese tallied a career-high 14 strikeouts over seven shutout frames Tuesday for Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Andriese went up against Pirates top prospect Jameson Taillon in an epic pitcher's duel. Neither starter allowed a run in their combined 14 innings of work. Andriese actually made 25 appearances for the Rays last season, so he isn't really a prospect anymore. The 26-year-old has done a fine job for Durham this year, earning a 3.41 ERA with an 11.54 K/9 over six starts. Andriese may make a few spot starts here and there, but he's going to have a tough time cracking Tampa Bay's loaded starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:40 am

  • Giants have increasing interest in Lincecum
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday that he has increasing interest in free agent Tim Lincecum.

    Advice: Lincecum is scheduled to throw a showcase for interested teams on Friday in Arizona, and over 20 major league clubs are expected to have a representative in attendance. Bochy and the Giants are viewing Lincecum as a potential long reliever. The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner probably prefers to start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 am

  • Greene (finger) resumed throwing Tuesday
    Shane Greene (blister) resumed throwing Tuesday.

    Advice: "Everything felt really good," Greene said of the blister on his right middle finger. "The issue is just letting it heal. So we'll see how it responds tomorrow and go from there." The right-hander hopes to be activated off the 15-day disabled list when first eligible next Tuesday. Michael Fulmer will take at least one more turn in the Tigers' rotation.

  • Erik Johnson to start Thursday vs. Red Sox
    Erik Johnson will join the White Sox starting rotation Thursday and face the Red Sox.

    Advice: He's replacing veteran starter John Danks, who was pushed off the 40-man roster on Tuesday afternoon. Johnson owns an ugly 4.17 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 6.9 K/9 in 86 1/3 career major league innings. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:25 pm
  • Mets not planning to watch Lincecum
    Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets don't plan to attend Tim Lincecum's showcase on Friday.

    Advice: Finally, news of a team who won't be in attendance. More than a dozen teams reportedly will be, including the likes of the Angels, Mariners, Dodgers, Cubs, Padres, Giants, Athletics, Rangers, Astros, White Sox, Nationals, and Orioles. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner is rehabbing from hip surgery and hopes to land a starting job somewhere. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:56 am

  • Report: Angels to attend Lincecum's showcase
    Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that the Angels will attend Tim Lincecum's showcase on Friday in Arizona.

    Advice: The Angels are expected to be one of around 20 teams in attendance. It's worth a shot to at least take a look, as the club could use the rotation depth. C.J. Wilson (shoulder), Tyler Skaggs (elbow, shoulder), and Andrew Heaney (forearm) are all on the disabled list while Matt Shoemaker was recently demoted after posting a 9.15 ERA over five starts.

  • Peralta earns win despite 13 hits allowed
    Despite allowing five runs on 13 hits over 5 2/3 innings, Wily Peralta somehow picked up a win against the Marlins on Sunday.

    Advice: Peralta should send a fruit basket and some sort of sympathy card to Marlins starter Tom Koehler, as the latter actually managed to pitch worse (allowing eight runs into the third) and gave Peralta a shot at a cheap victory. Neither pitcher struck out a batter. Victory is victory, of course. A victory for fantasy owners would be to bench the talented-but-struggling Peralta until he shows signs of righting the ship. At the moment, he holds a 7.50 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 18/13 K/BB ratio across 30 innings. A road start against the Reds shows next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:21 pm

  • Tim Lincecum to host showcase on Friday
    Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that Tim Lincecum will finally hold his long-awaited showcase for interested teams on Friday in Scottsdale, Arizona.

    Advice: At least 20 teams have expressed interest in attending the showcase at one point or another to see what the two-time National League Cy Young award winner has left in the tank. The 31-year-old has reportedly been throwing in the 90-91 mph range. With so many teams starved for rotation help, he shouldn't have much difficulty landing a job. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:20 pm

  • Adam Morgan showing better velocity
    Adam Morgan's average fastball was clocked at 90.8 mph during Friday's start against the Indians.

    Advice: That's up almost a full two mph from last season. Morgan is now two years removed from shoulder surgery and it appears he's beginning to regain his old velocity. "Everything is good, and that's what I'm excited about. Everything has been progressing phenomenally," Morgan said. "It's a good sign, for sure. I'm feeling good, and it gives me confidence." Morgan's upside still isn't all that high even with the better velocity, but he could carve out some NL-only value. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:44 am
  • Kris Medlen allows one run in loss
    Kris Medlen lost despite holding the Mariners to one run and one hit in 5 1/3 innings on Friday.

    Advice: The one hit was a Seth Smith homer, dooming Medlen to a loss in a 1-0 game. The right-hander also walked five batters, which shortened his night but didn't lead to any additional runs. He's still on shaky ground in the Royals' rotation, but tonight's performance should help his cause a bit. He's 1-2 with a 4.87 ERA. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:09 pm
  • Davies gives up four runs in loss
    Zach Davies was touched up for four runs on six hits and three walks over five innings in a loss to the Marlins on Friday.

    Advice: Davies dug himself an early hole by giving up a three-run bomb to Justin Bour in the first inning. While the 23-year-old posted a 3.71 ERA over six starts as a rookie last season, his secondary numbers indicated that he was walking a fine line. He has dropped all three of his starts this season and owns an ugly 8.78 ERA. Fantasy owners have better options to choose from. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:51 pm
  • Morgan goes five innings in no-decision
    Adam Morgan allowed three runs over five innings Friday in a no-decision against the Indians.

    Advice: He struck out a career-high seven batters and walked just one. Morgan, who was called up this week to replace the injured Charlie Morton, held the Indians scoreless before giving up an RBI single to Rajai Davis and a two-run homer to Jason Kipnis in his final inning of work. While things fell apart for him in the end, the Phillies have to be happy with what they saw. Morgan could carve out some NL-only value in Philadelphia’s rotation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:56 pm
  • Orioles continue to talk to Kyle Lohse
    Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Baseball reports that the Orioles have continued to talk to free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse.

    Advice: Despite signing Wandy Rodriguez to a minor league deal on Friday, the O's continue to scour the market for potential upgrades to their starting rotation. The Orioles have reportedly made an offer to Lohse, but the two sides haven't been able to reach an agreement on financial terms. The Tigers and Reds have also expressed interest in Lohse.

  • Ross Detwiler designated for assignment
    Indians designated LHP Ross Detwiler for assignment.

    Advice: Detwiler holds a 5.79 ERA this season and a 7.14 mark since the beginning of 2015. He'll surely have to settle for a minor league deal somewhere. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:51 am

  • Shane Greene (blister) placed on DL
    Tigers placed RHP Shane Greene on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a middle finger blister.

    Advice: The blister didn't heal fast enough for Greene to make his scheduled start this weekend, so the Tigers are playing it safe. He should be back soon. Michael Fulmer is taking Greene's rotation spot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:40 am

  • Adam Morgan recalled from Triple-A
    Phillies recalled LHP Adam Morgan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Morgan will start on Friday against Cleveland, taking the rotation spot of Charlie Morton (hamstring). The left-hander held a 3.57 ERA in his first three starts for Lehigh Valley but isn't a strong fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:17 am
  • Lincecum could have showcase next week
    MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that Tim Lincecum could have a showcase for teams next week.

    Advice: We've been waiting for said showcase for months now, but 20 teams are expected to be in attendance whenever it finally takes place. Heyman hears that Lincecum was "consistently" in the 90-91 mph range on Monday and is likely to throw again this weekend. The 31-year-old is coming off hip surgery and had a 4.13 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 60/38 K/BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings last season for the Giants. It's tough to have high expectations at this point.

  • Wilson can't hang on long enough to earn win
    Tyler Wilson pitched well but failed to make it through five innings Thursday, allowing two runs over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the White Sox.

    Advice: Trying to protect a three-run lead, Wilson got two quick outs in the top of the fifth before a hit batsmen and a single brought up Jose Abreu as the tying run. He finished with four hits and a walk allowed, striking out three before exiting. The start was his second since joining the rotation, and the 26-year-old owns a 3.06 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 17 2/3 innings. The Yankees are up next for Wilson, as the two will face off on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:39 pm
  • Shane Greene (finger) to be placed on the DL
    MLive.com's Chris Lott reports that Shane Greene (finger) will be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Greene was pulled after three innings in his last start due to a blister issue on his right middle finger and on Monday manager Brad Ausmus indicated that Greene was uncertain for his next start. It is apparently worse than just uncertain, as it appears the 27-year-old right-hander will need at least another week to heal. Top pitching prospect Michael Fulmer is expected to be called up to start against the Twins on Friday. While the team hasn't yet committed to more than one start, Fulmer should be considered rosterable in mixed leagues on a speculative basis. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:00 pm

  • Phillies expected to call up Adam Morgan
    Adam Morgan was scratched from his scheduled outing Wednesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: The Phillies are expected to promote Morgan so he can start Friday's game against Cleveland. He could draw a handful of starts while Charlie Morton works his way back from a hamstring injury. Morgan has posted a 3.57 ERA in his first three starts for Lehigh Valley. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:05 pm
  • Greene (finger) questionable for next start
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that Shane Greene (finger) is still up in the air for his next start.

    Advice: Greene was forced to exit Sunday's start against the Indians due to a blister on his right middle finger. Matt Boyd, Buck Farmer, and Michael Fulmer are among the options to fill in if he isn't ready by Friday's game against the Twins. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:50 pm
