  • Scott Kazmir gives up three in win on Sunday
    Scott Kazmir earned his ninth victory of the season on Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits over five innings against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Kazmir struck out three and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. The Dodgers offense staked him to nine runs in the first two innings, so all Kazmir had to do was throw strikes and make sure the Cardinals didn't mount a major rally against him. Tommy Pham provided the big blow against him with a two-run blast in the second. He'll bring a 4.35 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Rangers interested in Edinson Volquez
    Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have expressed interest in acquiring veteran right-hander Edinson Volquez from the Royals.

    Advice: Grant notes that the entire Rangers brass in charge of player personnel was on hand for Volquez's start on Sunday and the club has admitted that they're seeking a major upgrade to their rotation. The Royals haven't yet decided if they'll be buyers or sellers at next week's trade deadline. The right-hander's next start is conveniently against the Rangers in Arlington on Friday, so all he may need to do is change dugouts if a deal gets consummated. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 pm
  • Tigers option Buck Farmer to Triple-A
    Tigers optioned RHP Buck Farmer to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Farmer was with the club just for one day as the 26th man for Sunday's quasi-doubleheader against the White Sox. He'll continue to provide depth for the Tigers at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:10 pm
  • A's option Jesse Hahn to AAA Nashville
    Athletics optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Hahn threw 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday afternoon in the A's win over the Rays, but it was only meant to be a spot start. He should get another try in a few weeks after Oakland sells off some parts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:38 pm
  • Hahn pitches into eighth as A's down Rays
    Jesse Hahn delivered 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in the A's 3-2 win over the Rays.

    Advice: It was the best outing of the season for Hahn, who has been toiling away at Triple-A Nashville since posting a 6.49 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over his first seven starts with Oakland. He yielded just four hits and one walk while striking out five on Sunday, keeping Tampa Bay off the board until the top of the eighth inning. Hahn probably deserves another turn, but it's not clear yet if that will happen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:54 pm
  • Nationals option Lucas Giolito back to minors
    Nationals optioned RHP Lucas Giolito to Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Giolito allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 3 1/3 innings Sunday in the Nationals' loss to the Padres. It was his third career start at the major league level. Joe Ross (shoulder) could be activated to fill the rotation vacancy later this week. Or maybe the Nats will try Reynaldo Lopez again. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:41 pm
  • Lester allows four runs in no-decision
    Jon Lester surrendered four earned runs over four innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Brewers.

    Advice: Lester struggled from the jump in this one, yielding two runs in the bottom of the first inning on two walks, three singles, and three stolen bases. Chicago's offense rallied to grab a 6-5 victory, with Joe Nathan earning his first major league win since September 2014. Lester will try to bounce back next time out against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:31 pm
  • Taillon allows four runs versus Phillies
    Jameson Taillon allowed four earned runs over six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Phillies.

    Advice: At least he didn't get hit in the head by a comebacker, which is what happened in his last start Tuesday versus the Brewers. Taillon struck out seven batters on Sunday and issued no walks, but the Phillies got to the rookie right-hander for eight hits, including two home runs. Pittsburgh did rally to take the game 5-4, with the "win" going to Neftali Feliz. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:24 pm
  • Anibal Sanchez yields four runs on 10 hits
    Anibal Sanchez allowed four earned runs over six innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the White Sox.

    Advice: Detroit wound up losing in the bottom of the ninth inning, with Bruce Rondon taking the loss. Sanchez got lit up for 10 hits, including an Adam Eaton three-run shot in the bottom of the second inning. The right-hander has a 6.56 ERA on the year and could be pushed out of the Detroit rotation before his next scheduled turn. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:09 pm
  • Volquez goes six strong but Royals lose
    Edinson Volquez tossed six innings of one-run ball but the Royals fell to the Rangers on Sunday.

    Advice: The reigning World Series champs are now under .500 (48-49) for the year and quickly falling out of contention for a spot in the 2016 postseason. Volquez did his part Sunday, but the Kansas City offense could only muster one run of support. The right-hander has been steady since a brutal 11-run outing June 25 versus Houston. He gets the Rangers again next, this time on the road. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:29 pm
  • Finnegan lit on fire for six runs against ARI
    Brandon Finnegan was horrific in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing six runs on seven hits over five innings.

    Advice: Five of the six runs on Finnegan's line came courtesy of a trio of home runs by Yasmany Tomas, Welington Castillo and Paul Goldschmidt. Tomas and Goldschmidt notched solo shots in the second and fifth innings, respectively, while Castillo came through with a three-run tater in the third. With that disaster squared away, Finnegan will hit the road for a date with the Padres next time he toes the rubber. He will carry a bloated 4.93 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into that affair. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:20 pm
  • Giolito allows four runs, Nats fall to Padres
    Lucas Giolito allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 3 1/3 innings Sunday in the Nationals' loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Giolito escaped with a no-decision because the Padres didn't grab the lead for good until the top of the ninth inning, when they plated four runs against Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon. Giolito walked three and gave up four hits while recording zero strikeouts. He might be headed right back to the minor leagues with Joe Ross (shoulder) making swift progress in his rehab. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:11 pm
  • Wei-Yin Chen headed to DL with elbow injury
    Marlins placed LHP Wei-Yin Chen on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 21, with a left elbow sprain.

    Advice: Chen having an elbow issue was first reported by SiriusXM's Craig Mish. Manager Don Mattingly said that the club is hopeful the injury isn't serious, but it sounds like they might not know for sure until after Chen is examined further. Jarred Cosart has placed Chen in the rotation for the time being, but the Marlins are expected to seek rotation help before the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:20 pm

  • Carlos Rodon (wrist) making rehab start Mon.
    Carlos Rodon (wrist) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

    Advice: White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said whether Rodon needs an additional rehab start will depend on how he feels. In other words, he should rejoin the Pale Hose rotation later this week as long as he doesn't have a setback. Rodon has missed two and a half weeks with a sprained left wrist.

  • Glasnow might have been hurt before start
    Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Tyler Glasnow's shoulder might have been bothering him before his start on Saturday.

    Advice: Glasnow was pulled in the third inning against the Phillies. The good news is that Huntington thinks the injury was caught before it got too bad, although the GM noted that Glasnow should've alerted the staff sooner that he wasn't 100 percent. Glasnow hasn't undergone any tests and it doesn't appear at this point that he will, so he might not be sidelined for terribly long. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:46 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Tyler Skaggs to make season debut Tuesday
    Tyler Skaggs will make his season debut for the Angels on Tuesday in Kansas City.

    Advice: Skaggs has completed his rehab from Tommy John surgery and also from a shoulder ailment that cropped up earlier this season. The usual caution should be applied here with anyone coming back from Tommy John surgery, but Skaggs was dominant of late for Triple-A Salt Lake, allowing just two runs while striking out 26 over his last 12 2/3 frames. He's worth a flier in deeper mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:20 am

  • Jesse Hahn recalled from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Hahn will make a spot start against the Rays on Sunday. He could be sent down right after the outing, depending on whether the A's think Rich Hill (blister) will be ready for his next turn. Hahn holds an ugly 6.49 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in seven starts with the A's this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 am
  • Report: Chen injury could be elbow related
    SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports that Wei-Yin Chen's injury is arm related and is "could be (his) elbow."

    Advice: The Marlins announced Saturday that Chen would not start Monday, but they didn't reveal the nature of his injury. It's unclear at this point how serious the ailment might be, but we should find out before long. Jarred Cosart is taking Chen's spot in the rotation for now, but the club is almost surely going to land a starter prior to the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 am

  • Lucas Giolito recalled for Sunday's start
    Nationals recalled RHP Lucas Giolito from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Giolito will rejoin the Nats' rotation on Sunday against the Padres. He's been up and down in his two starts with the big club and probably isn't guaranteed anything beyond Sunday with Joe Ross (shoulder) due back soon. However, Giolito certainly makes for an interesting streaming option against San Diego. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:47 am
  • Glasnow (shoulder) placed on disabled list
    Pirates placed RHP Tyler Glasnow on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

    Advice: Glasnow departed Saturday's start against the Phillies with a sore shoulder. It's unclear at this point whether he might be dealing with any structural issues, but obviously the Pirates don't want to take any chances here. The club could offer more on a potential timetable for Glasnow later Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:32 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Wisler gives up six runs at Coors Field
    Matt Wisler took a beating at Coors Field on Saturday, giving up six runs in 5 1/3 innings and earning his 10th loss of the season.

    Advice: Good things rarely happen for pitchers in Denver and today was no exception. Wisler allowed seven baserunners and six of them scored. He gave up five hits and two walks while fanning three. The bad game lowers his record to 4-10 with a 4.92 ERA. As a mediocre pitcher on a team that rarely gives him much run support, Wisler is only an option for desperate fantasy owners. On the other hand, he is only 23 years old and is holding his own in the major leagues already, so maybe he will be a good fantasy pitcher in a few years. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:00 pm
  • Smyly gives up one run in six innings on Sat.
    Drew Smyly held the Athletics to only one run in six innings but had to settle for a no-decision after the Rays' bullpen blew the save on Saturday.

    Advice: He gave up six hits and one walk and fanned only one batter in the ballgame. The lack of strikeouts is unusual for Smyly, who has whiffed more than a batter per inning this year. The win would really have been nice for his owners, who have suffered through his 2-11 record this year. He will take his 5.42 ERA into his next start at home against the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:29 pm
  • Wei-Yin Chen scratched from start on Monday
    Wei-Yin Chen has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday against the Phillies.

    Advice: It's an injury, but there are no specifics yet. Look for an update Sunday morning. Jarred Cosart will be called up from Triple-A New Orleans to take the hill instead. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:43 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Glasnow left start because of shoulder injury
    Tyler Glasnow was pulled from his second major league start Saturday due to shoulder discomfort.

    Advice: Shoulder troubles rarely end well, but there's no word yet as to the severity of this particular issue. Glasnow figures to see a specialist within the next couple of days. He gave up two runs in three-plus innings Saturday versus the Phillies, hitting two batters and walking three. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:28 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Glasnow leaves game with an apparent injury
    Tyler Glasnow left his start Saturday against the Phillies with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Glasnow had hit two Phillies batters and gave up a run in both the first and second. He exited with zero outs in the top of the fourth. This was the 22-year-old top prospect's second start in the major leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:46 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Giolito returning to start Sunday vs. Padres
    Lucas Giolito will return to the majors to start Sunday at home against the Padres.

    Advice: It's a nice matchup for a talented pitcher, but it will likely be a spot start with Joe Ross (shoulder) nearing his return. Giolito allowed four earned runs in 7 2/3 innings (two starts) three weeks ago with Washington. Those were his first two MLB outings. Maybe he can force the Nationals to keep him on the major league roster if he dominates on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:33 pm
  • Pirates recall Glasnow for Saturday start
    Pirates recalled RHP Tyler Glasnow from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Glasnow will make his second start with the Pirates on Saturday at home against the Phillies. If he pitches well, he could make a case for remaining in the rotation for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:30 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Tyler Glasnow to start for Pirates Saturday
    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle confirmed Friday that Tyler Glasnow will start on Saturday against the Phillies.

    Advice: It will be the first start in Pittsburgh for the 22-year-old southpaw. He gave up four runs on three hits and a pair of walks over 5 1/3 innings in his major league debut against the Cardinals on July 7. If he pitches well, he could stake his claim to a rotation spot for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:13 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Tyler Glasnow could start on Saturday
    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Thursday that Tyler Glasnow is "definitely one of the guys we’re talking about" when it comes to who will start on Saturday.

    Advice: Glasnow had been listed as Triple-A Indianapolis' starter for that day, but now Chad Kuhl is listed in that spot. Kuhl is less than 10 days from being optioned, so he can't be recalled unless someone goes on the disabled list. Glasnow is looking like the heavy favorite to take the ball against the Phillies on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:30 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Jesse Hahn to start for A's on Sunday
    Jesse Hahn will be recalled from Triple-A Nashville to start for the Athletics on Sunday.

    Advice: The A's had hoped that Rich Hill (blister) would be ready to return on Sunday, but that appears very unlikely. Hahn posted a worrisome 6.49 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in seven starts with the A's earlier in the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:32 pm
  • Skaggs (shoulder) fans 12 in rehab start
    Tyler Skaggs (shoulder) looked in midseason form during Wednesday's rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake, striking out 12 over 5 2/3 scoreless innings.

    Advice: Skaggs yielded just one hit over his 5 2/3 innings of work. He is nearing a return to the majors after undergoing Tommy John surgery in the August of 2014. Several setbacks have prevented him from a speedier recovery. The 25-year-old southpaw could rejoin the Angels next week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:34 pm

  • Chen gives up four runs in loss to Phillies
    Wei-Yin Chen was touched up for four runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He managed to fan five batters without walking anyone but got hit early and often. The loss moves his record to 5-4 with a 4.99 ERA. He has a league-average strikeout rate and an excellent walk rate. Home runs have been the problem this year. He has given up 20 longballs in 19 starts. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:14 pm

  • Anibal Sanchez to start on Sunday
    Anibal Sanchez will start against the White Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: Sanchez has struggled mightily this season, but struck out 11 in his last outing and showed enough to earn another start. With Daniel Norris (oblique) currently out on a rehab assignment and nearing a return to the Tigers, this could well be Sanchez's last shot to impress in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:52 pm
  • Taillon (head) lands in concussion protocol
    Jameson Taillon was placed in the concussion protocol after taking a line drive to his head on Tuesday.

    Advice: Taillon -- who had just returned from the disabled list on Tuesday -- was hit in the head by a liner off the bat of Hernan Perez in the second inning. The ball came off Perez's bat at 105 mph. He shook the liner off and went on to toss six innings of one-run ball. Taillon said that he woke up feeling good on Wednesday morning, a positive sign. His status for a scheduled Sunday showdown with the Phillies remains cloudy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:10 pm
  • Taillon tosses six strong innings in return
    Jameson Taillon threw six innings of one-run ball against the Brewers in his return from the disabled list Tuesday.

    Advice: Taillon gave up five hits without walking a batter, needing just 65 pitches to get through his six innings. His toughest test, in fact, was overcoming a line drive that glanced off his head in the second inning. He stayed in the game and pitched well but didn't get a win for his efforts. Taillon will carry a 2-1 record, 3.44 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into Sunday's start against the Phillies. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:15 pm
  • Kazmir goes seven strong in win over Nats
    Scott Kazmir allowed a solitary run over seven innings of work in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: On a day when the Dodgers had to shut down ace Clayton Kershaw due to lingering back discomfort, Kazmir offered some solace with his longest outing since May 14. The southpaw scattered four hits without issuing a walk, striking out eight Nationals in the victory. Kazmir improved to 8-3 with the win and will take a 4.30 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Sunday night's start against the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:21 pm
  • Anibal Sanchez strikes out 10 Twins
    Anibal Sanchez struck out 10 Twins on Tuesday, but he took a loss after allowing three runs in six-plus innings.

    Advice: It could have been extremely positive outing for Sanchez had he been pulled after allowing one run in six innings. Instead, he was sent back out for the seventh and lifted after a leadoff walk and a single. Both runners came around to score off Bruce Rondon. Even so, it's the first time in 10 starts that he's allowed three runs or fewer. It hadn't happened since April 28 against the A's. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:47 pm
  • Giolito sharp over 6 2/3 innings at AAA
    Lucas Giolito allowed just one unearned run over 6 2/3 innings Tuesday in a start for Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: He scattered seven hits and two walks over his 6 2/3 frames, striking out seven. 70 of his 104 pitches went for strikes. This was actually the Triple-A debut for Giolito, who jumped from Double-A Harrisburg directly to Washington last month for his first MLB start. He should get another shot with the Nats within the next few weeks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:38 pm
  • Carlos Rodon (wrist) played catch Tues.
    Carlos Rodon (wrist) played catch Tuesday without issue.

    Advice: "It's a good sign, throwing and not hurting," the left-hander told reporters after his workout. Rodon will throw on flat ground again Thursday and should then be cleared to return to a mound in a simulated setting. He's been on the disabled list since July 6 with a sprained left wrist and doesn't currently have a timetable for activation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:45 pm

  • Pirates welcome Jameson Taillon back from DL
    Pirates activated RHP Jameson Taillon from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Taillon hit the disabled list at the start of July with right shoulder fatigue, but he'll make his return Tuesday against the Brewers. The rookie right-hander owns a 3.86 ERA and 21/5 K/BB ratio in 28 innings through his first five starts in the majors.Daily Slant: Jameson Taillon has been held to under 100 pitches in each of his five starts and it's very likely that continues tonight, but did get to 95 pitches last time out with his highest SwStr rate (8.4%). That’s still below average and doesn’t match up with his 18.8 K% so far, but he did miss bats at an above average rate in the minors and hasn’t walked many with a ground ball rate a bit above 50% so far. The kicker here is a great spot against a MIL offense with a 26.2 K% vs RHP in a park that should punish their moderate power. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:45 pm
  • Skaggs (shoulder) to make rehab start Wed.
    Tyler Skaggs (shoulder) will make his next minor league rehab start on Wednesday with Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Skaggs was originally scheduled to pitch on Tuesday, but he was pushed back a day due to rain. Nick Tropeano (elbow) appears likely to land on the disabled list, so Skaggs could replace him in the rotation as soon as next week. The Angels have a scheduled off-day on Thursday, so they can skip Tropeano's next turn this weekend. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:07 am

  • Drew Smyly gives up five runs to Rockies
    Drew Smyly gave up five runs in five innings Monday in a loss to the Rockies at Coors.

    Advice: The Rays gave Smyly an extra-long break in an effort to try to help him out of his funk, but he didn't have any success working on 11 days' rest tonight. He still doesn't seem hopeless, but 0-7 with a 7.60 ERA over a 10-start span just isn't very good. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:52 pm
  • Edinson Volquez solid for seven innings
    Edinson Volquez allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings Monday in a no-decision against the Indians.

    Advice: Volquez was outpitched by Corey Kluber, but the Royals went on to win this one after both starters left. Volquez has a solid 3.16 ERA in four starts since having the worst outing of his life (11 ER in 1 IP) against the Astros on June 24. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:41 pm
  • Brandon Finnegan picks up fifth victory
    Brandon Finnegan lasted just five-plus innings but picked up a win Monday, allowing two runs in an 8-2 victory over the Braves.

    Advice: Finnegan served up a leadoff homer and then a double and a single in the sixth before being pulled. He was good before that, though, giving up four hits and a walk through his first five frames. It was just the second time in his last 10 starts that Finnegan walked fewer than three batters. He'll take on the Diamondbacks the next time out. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:04 pm
  • Matt Wisler undone by the longball Monday
    Matt Wisler was roughed up for six runs -- five earned -- over five innings in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Wisler faced the minimum through the first three innings, but the Reds got to him with three home runs and five runs in the fourth. The young right-hander has had an up-and-down season and has now allowed six runs in back-to-back outings. He'll have a tough time bouncing back this weekend in Colorado. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:58 pm
  • Jon Lester bounces back in win over Mets
    Jon Lester bounced back from a couple rough outings with 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball in Monday's 5-1 victory over the Mets.

    Advice: Lester gave up 13 runs over just 4 1/3 innings in his last two starts before the All-Star break, but he got off to a nice start in the second half by shutting down the Mets. The left-hander recorded just three strikeouts and also walked three, but he held the Mets to only four hits. Lester will carry a 10-4 record and 2.89 ERA into Milwaukee this weekend. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:03 pm
  • Jameson Taillon (shoulder) to start Tuesday
    Jameson Taillon (shoulder) is slated to rejoin the Pirates' rotation on Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Taillon has been held out of action for all of July with right shoulder fatigue, but he's evidently ready to go now. The young hurler has put up a 3.86 ERA and 21/5 K/BB ratio over 28 innings across five starts for the Pirates. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 8:46 am
  • Rodon: I'll be good to go in another week
    Carlos Rodon (wrist) said he "should be good to go in another week."

    Advice: Rodon played catch on Saturday after taking the All-Star break off to rest. He still reported some soreness but didn't seem overly concerned. "This last week I made a lot of progress," said Rodon. "The past couple of days, now I can move it around a little bit, and it’s feeling better." Manager Robin Ventura hinted that Rodon might need a rehab start before he's ready to join the White Sox rotation. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 6:39 pm

  • Chen gives up four runs in six innings on Fri
    Wei-Yin Chen surrendered four runs on six hits in six innings but did not factor into the decision in the Marlins' 7-6 come-from-behind victory over the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: He struck out five and walked one. All the damage came in the fourth inning when he gave up a solo homer to Stephen Piscotty and a three-run homer to Tommy Pham. He has given up 19 home runs already in his 18 starts. Chen is having a poor year in a pitchers' park in Miami after having a very good year in a hitters' park in Baltimore last season. He will take his 5-2 record and 4.90 ERA into a road matchup with the Phillies next week. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 10:05 pm

  • Skaggs (shoulder) to remain in minors for now
    Tyler Skaggs (shoulder) will make at least one more rehab start with Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Skaggs was fantastic in his most recent start on Thursday, allowing just one hit and no walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out 14 batters. His return from Tommy John surgery was pushed back due to a shoulder issue, but he's back on track now and should be stashed in a DL spot in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 4:29 pm
