  • Report: Dodgers interested in Erasmo Ramirez
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are interested in Rays right-hander Erasmo Ramirez.

    Advice: The idea would be to use Ramirez as a stopgap option in the starting rotation. Ramirez has pitched almost exclusively in relief with the Rays this season while posting a 3.68 ERA and 38/12 K/BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings, but he has had success as a starter in the past. He just became arbitration-eligible for the first time last winter as a Super Two player, so the Rays would probably seek a nice piece in return in order to get a deal done with Andrew Friedman and company. 36 minutes ago
  • Rangers claim Surkamp off waivers
    Rangers claimed LHP Eric Surkamp off waivers from the Athletics; optioned him to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Surkamp was recently designated for assignment by the Athletics. He'll provide some left-handed depth for his new club. Today, 12:15 pm

  • Cedeno pitches scoreless ninth inning
    Xavier Cedeno tossed a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Cedeno struck out one batter and worked around a leadoff single by David Ortiz. The Rays had a four-run lead at the time, so it wasn’t a save chance, but the southpaw could be the preferred option in the ninth inning while Alex Colome (biceps) is sidelined. Erasmo Ramirez and Matt Andriese are also in the mix. Today, 12:12 pm
  • Floyd expected to miss 8-12 weeks
    Gavin Floyd is expected to miss eight to 12 weeks with a partial tear of his lat muscle.

    Advice: In other words, there's a pretty good chance that he's done for the year. His bad luck on the injury front continues. Floyd has been a useful bullpen piece at times this season, posting a 4.06 ERA and 30/8 K/BB ratio over 31 innings. Today, 12:03 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Worley (groin) joining O's on Thursday
    Vance Worley (groin) is traveling to Seattle to join the Orioles.

    Advice: Worley has been out for two weeks with a right groin strain, but he's on track to be activated for the series opener against the Mariners on Thursday. The 28-year-old owns a 2.66 ERA with a 33/13 K/BB ratio covering 40 2/3 innings this season. Today, 11:22 am
    15-Day DL
  • Saupold (groin) cleared to rejoin workouts
    Warwick Saupold (groin) has been cleared to resume workouts.

    Advice: Saupold exited Monday's rehab apperance with Triple-A Toledo after aggravating his groin injury. He'll pitch with High-A Lakeland once he's ready to return to action. Today, 8:09 am
  • Reds option Hoover to Triple-A
    Reds optioned RHP JJ Hoover to Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Hoover has allowed 11 runs over his last three appearances and now owns a 13.50 ERA for the year. Keyvius Sampson will take his place in the Reds' bullpen. Today, 7:52 am

  • Richard (blister) makes rehab appearance
    Clayton Richard (blister) struck out two batters in a scoreless inning Tuesday in a minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: It was his first appearance since being placed on the disabled list with a blister last week. It's unclear when he'll rejoin the Cubs. The southpaw has an ugly 7.30 ERA in 22 appearances this season. Today, 6:00 am
    15-Day DL
    W, 9-2 @Cin
  • Suarez surrenders three runs to Athletics
    Albert Suarez surrendered three runs on three hits over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the A's.

    Advice: Suarez struck out five and walked three on the evening. The A's would score one run against him in the fourth inning and two more in the sixth. With Matt Cain (hamstring) set to begin a rehab assignment, the 26-year-old Suarez's time as a starter could be limited. Yesterday, 11:45 pm
  • Delgado steps in for Greinke to allow one run
    Randall Delgado pitched well in emergency relief action during Tuesday's showdown with the Phillies, allowing one run on three hits over three innings.

    Advice: Zack Greinke started the game, but he was waylaid by left oblique tightness after tossing two innings. Enter Delgado, who surrendered a fifth-inning solo home run to Maikel Franco but otherwise did a nice job in holding down the fort after Greinke's unexpected absence. For the season, Delgado owns a 3.51 ERA and 37/21 K/BB ratio over 41 innings. Yesterday, 11:19 pm
  • Feldman pitches well in spot start vs Angels
    Scott Feldman did a nice job in Tuesday's win over the Angels, allowing one unearned run on three hits over five innings.

    Advice: Feldman earned the start in place of Lance McCullers (blister). He struck out two without walking a batter. Depending on whether McCullers is able to recover in time for his next start, Feldman could see at least one more spot outing. The veteran right-hander has been used, for the most part, as a bullpen arm and holds a 2.76 ERA with a 34/13 K/BB ratio across 49 frames. Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Jansen works perfect ninth to earn 23rd save
    Kenley Jansen struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Brewers to earn his 23rd save.

    Advice: Jansen required just 10 pitches to finish the deed. The save was his eighth appearance in a row without allowing a run, lowering his ERA to 1.38 for the year. The right-hander has a 0.67 WHIP and 39/5 K/BB ratio over 32 2/3 innings this season. Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Oh gets call in ninth to finish off Royals
    Seung Hwan Oh was called on to pitch in a non-save situation in the ninth inning Tuesday against the Royals.

    Advice: While not technically a save opportunity, Oh was entrusted with the ninth inning in a four-run game, a sign that Cardinals manager Mike Matheny might turn to him in tighter instances as well. Oh didn't exactly pass with flying colors, allowing two hits and a walk before getting the final two outs without incident, but he still got the job done. With a 1.62 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 51/9 K/BB ratio through 39 innings, the 33-year-old former closer in Korea and Japan is the player to own for fantasy purposes with Trevor Rosenthal struggling. Yesterday, 8:27 pm
  • Cody Allen converts 15th save Tuesday
    Cody Allen allowed a run but held on to convert his 15th save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Jace Peterson smacked a one-out homer off of Allen and the closer also had to pitch around a two-out triple, but he eventually closed it out. Allen has blown a couple saves this month and hasn't had a ton of chances given that the Indians have played so well. He's mostly pitched very well since a rough April, though. Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • Braves option Matt Marksberry to Triple-A
    Braves optioned LHP Matt Marksberry to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Marksberry is being sent out to create room on the roster for Joel de la Cruz who will start for the Braves on Wednesday. The left-hander allowed two runs on two hits over his 1 2/3 innings with the big league club (10.80 ERA). He'll continue to function as bullpen depth in the minors. Yesterday, 7:22 pm

    4:10 pm vs Cle
  • Joel de la Cruz to start for Braves Wednesday
    Joel de la Cruz will make his major league debut against the Indians on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll start in place of the injured Aaron Blair. The 27-year-old hurler owns a troublesome 4.68 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 44/24 K/BB ratio over 57 2/3 innings at Triple-A. He isn't worth using in any fantasy formats, and should be stacked heavily against in daily leagues. Yesterday, 7:08 pm
  • Furbush will throw live batting practice
    Charlie Furbush (shoulder) is scheduled to throw live batting practice on Saturday.

    Advice: The left-hander threw a successful 35-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday and felt great afterwards. He's getting closer to a minor league rehab assignment and should be able to rejoin the M's bullpen at some point around the All-Star break. Yesterday, 3:52 pm
    60-Day DL
    7:10 pm vs Pit
  • Anibal Sanchez heading back to bullpen
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus announced Tuesday that Anibal Sanchez will continue to work out of the bullpen.

    Advice: Sanchez made a spot start in place of Michael Fulmer over the weekend where he was blasted by the Cleveland Indians. He'll continue to work out of his funk in a middle or long relief role for the Tigers. Yesterday, 2:03 pm
  • Orioles recall McFarland back from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled LHP T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: The southpaw has been a preferred choice any time the Orioles need an extra arm in the bullpen. He owns a 4.70 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 6/8 K/BB ratio across 23 innings with the big league club this season. Yesterday, 1:08 pm
  • Saupold pulled from rehab assignment
    Warwick Saupold (groin) has been pulled from his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Saupold exited Monday's rehab start with Triple-A Toledo after apparently aggravating the injury. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to action. He has been sidelined since the end of May. Yesterday, 12:26 pm
  • Marlins call up LHP Reyes from Triple-A
    Marlins purchased the contract of LHP Jo-Jo Reyes from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Reyes, 31, owns a 4.17 ERA and 27/11 K/BB ratio over 36 2/3 innings in Triple-A this season. He has made one appearance in the majors since 2011 and simply gives the Marlins a fresh arm. Yesterday, 12:21 pm
  • Braves recall RHP Kelly from Triple-A
    Braves recalled RHP Casey Kelly from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Kelly will replace the injured John Gant (oblique) on the active roster. The Braves haven't made an official decision, but he could make a spot start Wednesday against the Indians. Yesterday, 12:11 pm
  • Braves place RHP Gant on 15-day DL
    Braves placed RHP John Gant on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

    Advice: Gant suffered the injury during Monday's start against the Indians. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, but it would be no surprise if he misses more than the minimum 15 days. Casey Kelly will take his place on the active roster. Yesterday, 12:09 pm

  • Bellatti sent outright to Triple-A
    Rays sent RHP Andrew Bellatti outright to Triple-A Durham.

  • Diamondbacks released RHP Drabek
    Diamondbacks released RHP Kyle Drabek.

    Advice: Drabek, now 28, made one appearance with the Diamondbacks in April and had an ugly 6.68 ERA over 11 starts and four relief appearances in Triple-A. The former top prospect will attempt to latch on elsewhere. Yesterday, 11:41 am

  • Padres claim Paul Clemens off waivers
    Padres claimed RHP Paul Clemens off waivers from the Marlins.

    Advice: Clemens recently made two starts with the Marlins, giving up seven runs on 11 hits (including five homers) over 10 innings. It's unclear how he'll be used by his new team. Yesterday, 11:21 am

  • John Gant exits game with oblique strain
    John Gant exited Monday's start against the Indians after two innings due to a left oblique strain.

    Advice: Gant gave up one run on three hits before being replaced by Tyrell Jenkins. He's scheduled to be re-evaluated Tuesday, but a trip to the disabled list is likely in his future. Monday, 5:36 pm

  • Feldman to start Tuesday vs. Angels
    Scott Feldman will start Tuesday against the Angels.

    Advice: Feldman will start in place of Lance McCullers, who has been scratched due to a blister. The 33-year-old owns a 3.07 ERA and 32/13 K/BB ratio over 44 innings this season, mostly out of the bullpen. The Angels are an appealing matchup, but we're not expecting much in the way of fantasy value here. Monday, 5:18 pm
  • A's designate Surkamp for assignment
    Athletics designated LHP Eric Surkamp for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Nick Tepesch on the 40-man roster. Surkamp has posted an ugly 6.98 ERA in nine starts with the A's this season. Monday, 3:23 pm

  • Jansen notches four-out save vs. Pirates
    Kenley Jansen notched a four-out save Monday against the Pirates for his 22nd save of the season.

    Advice: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was serious about not getting swept, so he brought in Jansen to face Josh Harrison with two outs and nobody on in the eighth. Jansen responded by striking out Harrison swinging to end the frame. He retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth, including a strikeout of Gregory Polanco, but he issued a two-out walk to John Jaso. Jaso stole second base to move into scoring position, but Jansen was able to get Jordy Mercer on a fly out to end it. Jansen hasn’t allowed a run in his last seven appearances and owns a 1.42 ERA and 37/5 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 innings on the year. Monday, 1:32 pm
  • Seung Hwan Oh to get first crack at closer?
    Seung Hwan Oh warmed up in the eighth inning Sunday against the Mariners but wasn't needed after the Cardinals scored two runs in the ninth.

    Advice: The implication is that Oh would have been manager Mike Matheny's first choice had their been a save situation. The Cardinals have gone to a closer by committee in the wake of Trevor Rosenthal's recent struggles. Oh has enjoyed a brilliant rookie campaign, contributing 14 holds and a stellar 1.66 ERA over 37 appearances. Jonathan Broxton and Kevin Siegrist could also get looks in the ninth inning but Oh needs to be owned in all formats. Monday, 8:58 am
  • Gavin Floyd (shoulder) placed on DL
    Blue Jays placed RHP Gavin Floyd on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tightness.

    Advice: Floyd had to depart Saturday's game due to the ailment. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Bo Schultz has assumed his spot in the Blue Jays' bullpen. Sunday, 9:01 am
    15-Day DL
  • Clayton Richard (blister) resumes throwing
    Clayton Richard (blister) has resumed a throwing program.

    Advice: The blister on his left middle finger is no longer an issue and he's ready to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Iowa. Richard should be ready to return when his 15 days are up early next month. He's posted a 7.30 ERA and 2.19 WHIP in 22 appearances this season. Sunday, 6:01 am
    15-Day DL
    W, 9-2 @Cin
  • de la Cruz could take Blair's rotation spot
    Joel de la Cruz is a candidate to start Wednesday's game against the Indians.

    Advice: That would have been Aaron Blair's turn to pitch but the Braves optioned him to Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday. De la Cruz was called up last month but the Braves sent him down before he got a chance to pitch in a game. The 27-year-old holds a 4.68 ERA over 21 appearances (five starts) for Gwinnett this season. Saturday, 9:01 pm
  • T.J. McFarland optioned after doubleheader
    Orioles optioned LHP T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: McFarland was only up for the Orioles' doubleheader Saturday against Tampa Bay. He actually picked up a win in the nightcap, scattering three hits and one walk over two shutout frames. McFarland will continue to shuttle between Baltimore and Norfolk throughout the year. Saturday, 8:36 pm
  • Clemens allows four runs but earns first win
    Paul Clemens allowed four runs over five innings to earn his first win of the season Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Clemens was far from good, walking five while allowing two home runs among his four hits, but he was better than his counterpart, John Lackey. Clemens has now given up five home runs in his two starts, posting a 6.30 ERA and 1.90 WHIP in 10 innings of work. He'll take on the Braves on Friday. Saturday, 5:26 pm

  • Sanchez yields four runs in rotation return
    Anibal Sanchez allowed four runs over five innings in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Sanchez, making his first start in nearly a month after being exiled to the bullpen, gave up two home runs among his five hits allowed. He also walked two while striking out three. He owned a 1.86 ERA and 1.14 WHIP as a reliever but has been decidedly less effective as a starter, going 3-7 with a cumulative ERA now over 6. Sanchez, if he sticks in the rotation after Saturday, will take another shot at turning things around Friday at the Rays. Saturday, 4:26 pm
  • A's option Surkamp to make room for Overton
    Athletics optioned LHP Eric Surkamp to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The A's needed to clear a roster spot for Dillon Overton, who is set to make his major league debut on Saturday. With Surkamp back in the minors, Sean Manaea (elbow) should return to the A's rotation Wednesday against San Francisco. Surkamp is winless in nine starts this season with a disastrous 6.98 ERA.

  • Gavin Floyd exits with shoulder tightness
    Gavin Floyd left Saturday's game against the White Sox with right shoulder tightness.

    Advice: That's his throwing shoulder, in case you were wondering. Floyd faced just two batters before exiting in the sixth inning. The 33-year-old has had a so-so year out of the Blue Jays' pen, pitching to a 4.06 ERA over 31 innings of work. Given his long history of injuries, it wouldn't be a shock to see Floyd land on the disabled list. Saturday, 2:02 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Kelly could start for Braves next week
    Casey Kelly could take Aaron Blair's spot in the Braves' rotation next Wednesday against the Indians.

    Advice: Blair was demoted after an ugly start Friday against the Mets. Kelly, who was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this month, owns a 5.79 ERA and 5/6 K/BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings over one start and seven relief appearances with the Braves this season. Saturday, 12:03 pm
  • Braves recall LHP Marksberry from Triple-A
    Braves recalled LHP Matt Marksberry from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: He'll take Aaron Blair's spot on the active roster. Marksberry made one appearance with the Braves back in April and owns a 2.84 ERA and 25/14 K/BB ratio over 25 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A. Saturday, 11:37 am

  • Furbush (shoulder) throwing bullpen sessions
    Charlie Furbush (shoulder) has resumed throwing bullpen sessions.

    Advice: Furbush hasn't pitched in a major league game since July 2015 due to shoulder issues, but he's finally making some progress. It's unclear when he'll go out on a minor league rehab assignment, but he'll likely a bunch of appearances before being a legitimate consideration to rejoin the Mariners. Saturday, 8:43 am

  • Orioles call up LHP T.J. McFarland
    Orioles recalled LHP T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: He'll serve as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays. McFarland owns a 5.14 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 6/7 K/BB ratio over 21 innings with the Orioles this season. Saturday, 7:28 am
  • Andrew Bellatti designated for assignment
    Rays designated RHP Andrew Bellatti for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Oswaldo Arcia. Bellatti, 24, has struggled in the minors the last two seasons but put up a 2.31 ERA over 17 games for the Rays last year. Friday, 11:01 am

  • Surkamp to start Friday instead of Saturday
    Eric Surkamp's start has been moved up to Friday.

    Advice: The A's have been trying to piece together their rotation with Rich Hill (groin) and Sean Manaea (elbow) both hurt. Surkamp was originally slated to start Saturday's game against the Angels but instead he'll move up a day and pitch on five days rest. Dillon Overton could be in line to start Saturday. The left-hander has won seven straight for Triple-A Nashville and would be pitching on normal rest. Zach Neal and Jesse Hahn are also candidates to start. Thursday, 5:27 pm

  • Albert Suarez strikes out six in victory
    Albert Suarez allowed three runs -- two earned -- over five innings Thursday in a win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Suarez gave up four hits, walked two and struck out six while again filling in for Matt Cain. He's probably going to make one more start next week, but Cain isn't expected to remain sidelined for too much longer. Thursday, 1:26 pm
  • Worley (groin) hoping for Thursday bullpen
    Vance Worley (groin) threw a bullpen on Tuesday and will throw another on Thursday.

    Advice: The Orioles are aiming to start Worley on a rehab assignment by June 28. The 28-year-old right-hander had pitched to a 2.66 ERA with a 33/13 K/BB ratio covering 40 2/3 innings prior to being placed on the disabled list on June 14. Wednesday, 2:22 pm
    15-Day DL
  • John Gant allows three runs in loss to MIA
    John Gant surrendered three earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Gant was terrific last Friday against the Mets, but he fell back into mediocrity Wednesday afternoon in Miami. The right-hander gave up seven hits, including a two-run homer to Marlins first baseman Justin Bour. He stands 1-2 with a 4.45 ERA on the year. Wednesday, 11:44 am

  • Furbush transferred to the 60-day DL
    Mariners transferred LHP Charlie Furbush from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Tom Wilhelmsen, who was re-signed to a one-year deal on Wednesday morning. Furbush is still working his way back from a shoulder injury with no timetable for activation. Wednesday, 7:02 am

  • Cubs place Clayton Richard on the DL
    Cubs placed LHP Clayton Richard on the 15-day disabled list with a blister.

    Advice: Richard has a rough 7.30 ERA and 2.19 WHIP in 22 appearances this season out of the Cubs' bullpen. Maybe some time off and a rehab assignment will do him good. Tuesday, 2:27 pm
    15-Day DL
    W, 9-2 @Cin
  • Saupold (groin) set for rehab assignment
    Warwick Saupold (groin) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Saupold has been on the MLB disabled list since June 1 because of a right groin strain. He'll probably wind up back at Toledo when he returns to full health. Tuesday, 1:26 pm
  • Kenley Jansen becomes Dodgers' save king
    Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth Monday against the Nationals to move into first place on the Dodgers' save list.

    Advice: Jansen passed Eric Gagne with his 162nd career save. He's earned 20 of those this season. Monday, 10:16 pm
  • Clemens yields three runs over five in debut
    Paul Clemens allowed three runs over five innings in his season debut against the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: The final line was actually pretty friendly to the 28-year-old, as the Rockies hit three home runs, all with the bases empty, among Clemens' seven hits allowed. He also walked three and struck out just two. Clemens owned a 4.30 ERA at Triple-A New Orleans before his promotion, so he's not much to look at fantasy-wise, and a date with the Cubs on Saturday won't help that curb appeal. Monday, 7:49 pm

  • Paul Clemens called up from Triple-A
    Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Paul Clemens from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Clemens has put up a 4.30 ERA with 66 strikeouts across 75 1/3 innings for New Orleans this season. He'll presumably replace Justin Nicolino in the rotation but isn't worth considering in fantasy leagues. Jun 19, 8:02 am
