  • Pirates DFA righty Radhames Liz
    Pirates designated RHP Radhames Liz for assignment.

    Advice: Liz had walked 10 batters and allowed 20 hits in 17 1/3 innings this season out of the Pirates' bullpen, but the 31-year-old right-hander may draw interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com

  • Doolittle (shoulder) due back from DL Tues.
    Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is expected to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Doolittle has spent the first two months of the 2015 regular season rehabbing a slight tear in his left rotator cuff. He allowed five runs in five innings on his rehab assignment, so the A's will likely ease him back into high-leverage situations. The 28-year-old southpaw should eventually take over for Tyler Clippard at closer. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers put Neftali Feliz (side) on 15-day DL
    Rangers placed RHP Neftali Feliz on the 15-day disabled list with an axillary abscess on his right side.

    Advice: That doesn't sound very fun. Feliz was dumped from the Rangers' ninth-inning role in mid-May and Shawn Tolleson has handled the club's last three save opportunities with relative ease. Tolleson, who boasts a 29/4 K/BB ratio in 20 1/3 innings this season, is clearly the guy to own now from the Texas bullpen. There is no timetable for Neftali's return to action. Rotoworld.com

  • Gausman (shoulder) to throw sim. game June 2
    Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a two-inning simulated game on June 2.

    Advice: Gausman first has to make it through a bullpen session Tuesday and a live batting practice session Friday. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since early May with shoulder tendinitis. It's not exactly clear what his role will be once he's deemed ready to pitch in major league games.

  • Matusz gets eight games for grip-enhancer
    Major League Baseball suspended Brian Matusz eight games for having a foreign substance on his arm.

    Advice: Matusz was caught using a sticky grip-enhancer Saturday night during an appearance against the Marlins, and an eight-game suspension is the going rate for such a crime. The left-hander has appealed and will be available out of the Orioles' bullpen until that appeal is heard. Rotoworld.com

  • Royals recall Brandon Finnegan from Triple-A
    Royals recalled LHP Brandon Finnegan from Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: Finnegan had a 2.70 ERA in 6 2/3 innings of relief for the Royals when they optioned him to the minors on May 7. He's presumably going to return to a long relief role, though he had made three starts on the farm. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:09 am
  • Danny Duffy (shoulder) lands on disabled list
    Royals placed LHP Danny Duffy on the 15-day disabled list with left biceps tendinitis.

    Advice: Duffy reported feeling discomfort around his left shoulder last week and he's been rocked in his last few starts, so the Royals will give him some extended rest. Jason Vargas will be activated to start in his place Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium and Brandon Finnegan will join the Royals from Triple-A Omaha on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Fields (knee) tosses scoreless inning Sun.
    Josh Fields (knee) tossed a scoreless inning in the Astros' win over the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Fields struck out two of the four batters he faced. He was shut down for a bit after taking a comebacker off the outside of his right knee last Thursday. It was no big deal. Fields, 29, boasts a 0.87 ERA and 18/3 K/BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings this season for Houston. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:41 am
  • Frias crushed for 10 runs in four innings
    Carlos Frias was hammered in a loss to the Padres on Sunday, serving up 10 runs on 12 hits over four innings.

    Advice: The Padres unleashed the carnage early, scoring eight runs in the first two innings. Justin Upton was the main carnage man in this case, as he belted a grand slam in the first inning and a two-run double in the second. The rough start took its predictable beating on Frias' numbers, jumping his ERA from 2.82 to 5.34. Not the best day's work. This start was, by far, the worst of Frias' season. To this point, he had actually done a nice job holding down a spot in the rotation. Things don't get any easier moving forward, as a road start against the Cardinals awaits. Rotoworld.com

  • Santiago can't match Miley in pitcher's duel
    Despite allowing just three runs in 6 2/3 innings, Hector Santiago was saddled with the loss against the Red Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: Santiago probably couldn't have foreseen Wade Miley pitching well, but these things happen sometimes. It's not that Santiago pitched poorly. He struck out six and walked just one while scattering seven hits over 6 2/3 innings. The suddenly-hot Napoli touched up Santiago in the second inning with a long two-run homer. Santiago also allowed a less loud run in the form of a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice fly in the fifth. The outing bumped his ERA slightly and he holds a 2.47 mark, as well as a 1.23 WHIP and 50/22 K/BB ratio across 54 2/3 innings. Now that he's finished with the East Coast, he'll head back home for a start against the Tigers. Rotoworld.com

  • Storen K's two as Nats beat the Phillies
    Drew Storen worked a scoreless ninth inning for his 14th save as the Nationals wrapped up a 4-1 victory over the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Storen allowed a one-out double to Grady Sizemore, but struck out Cesar Hernandez and Odubel Herrera to end the contest. The right-hander is 14-for-15 in save opportunities with a stellar 0.93 ERA and a 25/3 K/BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:40 pm
  • Aaron Sanchez keeps Mariners in check
    Aaron Sanchez spun 6 2/3 solid innings Sunday, holding the Mariners to two runs in an 8-2 victory.

    Advice: Kyle Seager put the M's on the board with a solo homer in the second inning, but a sacrifice fly was the only way they were able to dent the scoreboard the rest of the way. Sanchez permitted seven hits, walked two and struck out four. The young righty holds a decent 3.98 ERA for the season, but it's come along with a 1.52 WHIP and ugly 34/34 K/BB ratio over 52 frames. He gets the Twins on the road next weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:15 pm
  • Ramirez has homer, command issues in a loss
    Erasmo Ramirez struggled in a loss to the Athletics on Sunday, serving up five runs in six innings of work.

    Advice: Ramirez had trouble finding the plate, issuing five walks. The damage was mostly done via the home run, allowing a first-inning leadoff home run to Billy Burns and a three-run blast to Mark Canha in the sixth inning. He gave up five hits and struck out four on the afternoon. Across five starts and seven relief appearances, Ramirez has a poor 6.62 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and a 29/16 K/BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings. He'll face the Orioles at Camden Yards next weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:11 pm
  • Matt Stites (elbow) nears rehab assignment
    Matt Stites (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Visalia later this week.

    Advice: It will come after he makes one final appearance in extended spring training on Monday. Stites was diagnosed with a strained right flexor tendon in spring training, but he's made nice progress lately and it appears he could be back early next month. Rotoworld.com

  • Hunter Strickland recalled from Triple-A
    Giants recalled RHP Hunter Strickland from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: Strickland had technically been sent back down after Saturday's doubleheader, but he's now back to take Casey McGehee's spot on the roster. The hard thrower will serve a middle relief role. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Gonzales to be examined in St. Louis
    Marco Gonzales will travel to St. Louis to be examined after feeling renewed tightness around his left pectoral muscle while playing catch Saturday.

    Advice: It was reported previously that Gonzales would be scratched from Monday's outing at Triple-A Memphis, and now we have a few more details. The Cardinals are expected to have more on the left-hander's status Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Red Sox get back Varvaro, place him on DL
    Red Sox placed RHP Anthony Varvaro on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 29, with a torn right flexor tendon.

    Advice: This is an interesting one. Varvaro was claimed off waivers by the Cubs early this month after the Red Sox designated him for assignment. Chicago eventually removed him from their 40-man roster, as well, but he's now back in Boston because it's been discovered he suffered the elbow injury while with the Red Sox. Varvaro isn't expected to return this season, but at least he'll draw a major league paycheck now. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzales (shoulder) won't make next start
    Marco Gonzales will not make his next scheduled start for Triple-A Memphis due to renewed discomfort in his pectoral/shoulder area.

    Advice: Gonzales whiffed seven over six innings of one-run ball in his last outing, but he's evidently felt more discomfort since then. It's not clear at this point how big of a setback it might be or if he might be set to undergo an MRI. Gonzales first began feeling soreness in mid-April. Rotoworld.com

    Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will play catch on Monday.

    Advice: It will be the first time he's thrown since he went on the disabled list with a sprained left AC joint. Pomeranz was given a cortisone injection late last week and could be looking at a relatively short stay on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com

  • Wesley Wright moved to 60-day DL
    Orioles transferred LHP Wesley Wright from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Chaz Roe. Wright is throwing in extended spring training games as he works his way back from a shoulder injury but now won't be eligible to return until mid-June. Rotoworld.com

  • Buck Farmer to start for Tigers on Thursday
    Buck Farmer will be recalled to start for the Tigers on Thursday in Anaheim.

    Advice: Farmer is taking Kyle Lobstein's (shoulder) spot in the rotation. The 24-year-old was knocked around during his time with the big club last season but is off to a great start this year at Triple-A Toledo with a 2.98 ERA and 50 strikeouts over 51 1/3 innings. He could be worth a shot in AL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Angels recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Triple-A Salt Lake.

  • Fields (knee) expected to be available Sunday
    Josh Fields (knee) could be available to pitch as soon as Sunday.

    Advice: Fields suffered a bone contusion on the outside of his right knee when he was hit by a comebacker Thursday. He threw a bullpen session Saturday and is expected to be fine. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:01 am
  • Petit allows four runs over six innings
    Yusmeiro Petit allowed four earned runs over six innings Saturday as the Giants dropped the second half of a doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Advice: Petit hadn't gone more than three innings in any appearance this season as the Giants' most-trusted long reliever, so that he was able to make it through six (on just 81 pitches) was a big help to the Giants' pitching staff as a whole. But the Colorado offense got to him for two runs in the fourth and two more in the sixth to split the doubleheader. Petit will head back to the bullpen now. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:56 pm
  • Matusz gets tossed for foreign substance
    Brian Matusz was ejected from Saturday's game for having a foreign substance on his right arm.

    Advice: Milwaukee's Will Smith was suspended eight games for the same offense earlier this week and Matusz should expect a similar punishment. The up-and-down Matusz carries a losing record (1-2) and has almost as many walks (ten) as strikeouts (11) this season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:01 pm
  • Sean Doolittle to be re-evaluated on Monday
    Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is scheduled to be re-evaluated by team doctors on Monday.

    Advice: The A's received glowing reports from Doolittle's last rehab outing on Friday, and barring any setbacks it looks as though he will be cleared to rejoin the bullpen at some point next week. Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated that he would probably be used in lower leverage situations his first couple of times out, easing the hard-throwing southpaw back into the closer's role. His return would spell the end of the fantasy value for Tyler Clippard. Rotoworld.com

  • Drew Storen slams door on Phillies in ninth
    Drew Storen worked a scoreless ninth inning on Friday, preserving a one-run advantage against the Phillies to earn his 13th save of the season.

    Advice: He did allow a pair of hits which put the game, and Max Scherzer's win, in jeopardy, but was able to battle back with a fly ball and a strikeout to end the evening. He has done a terrific job in his transition back to the closer's role, compiling a 0.98 ERA and 23/3 K/BB ratio across 18 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:02 pm
  • Danny Duffy (shoulder) pushed back to Tuesday
    Danny Duffy's (shoulder) next scheduled start has been pushed back from Saturday to Tuesday.

    Advice: Duffy is dealing with some stiffness in his pitching shoulder, which could at least partly explain his erratic performance of late. It doesn't appear to be something the Royals are overly concerned with since they're merely pushing him back a few days, but anytime the shoulder is involved there's some worry. Edinson Volquez and Yordano Ventura will move up a day but will be on regular rest. Rotoworld.com

    15-Day DL
  • Yusmeiro Petit to make spot start Saturday
    Yusmeiro Petit will start the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Advice: That's assuming he isn't needed in relief on Friday. Petit hasn't thrown more than three innings in any appearance this season as the Giants' long reliever, so the club would probably be thrilled to get five frames out of him on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:38 am
  • Pomeranz gets cortisone shot in shoulder
    Drew Pomeranz received a cortisone shot for his sprained left AC joint.

    Advice: Pomeranz will resume throwing once the cortisone shot does its job. There's no clear timetable for his return. Kendall Graveman is set to take his place in Oakland's starting rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Fields diagnosed with knee contusion
    Josh Fields was diagnosed with a bone contusion on the outside of his right knee.

    Advice: Fields was forced to exit Thursday's game after he was hit in the leg by a comebacker. Fortunately, X-rays came back negative and it sounds like he won't have to miss much time. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:05 pm
  • Fields exits game after being hit by liner
    Josh Fields left Thursday's game against the Tigers in the bottom of the ninth inning after he was hit in the right leg by a comebacker.

    Advice: The ball, which was hit by Anthony Gose, appeared to hit him around his knee. He limped off the field before being replaced by Will Harris. The Astros should provide an update soon. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:14 pm
  • O'Flaherty (shoulder) nears mound work
    Eric O'Flaherty (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session later this week.

    Advice: It will be his first time back on the bump since landing on the disabled list early this month with left shoulder inflammation. There's no word on a potential timetable for O'Flaherty's return, but a rehab assignment shouldn't be far off. Rotoworld.com

  • Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) placed on DL
    Athletics placed LHP Drew Pomeranz on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19, with a sprained left AC joint.

    Advice: It's an ailment he's dealt with before and he didn't seem concerned, as the southpaw was even able to play catch Tuesday. However, the A's have obviously decided to exercise caution here. It's not clear at this point how long Pomeranz will be sidelined. Arnold Leon has replaced him on the roster. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Gausman has expanded his sessions of catch to 60 feet and will move back to 90 feet on Thursday before stepping on the mound. The goal is for him to throw a simulated game on May 27. Working his way back from right shoulder tendinitis, will join Triple-A Norfolk's rotation when ready, but the open spot for him with the Orioles may still be in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Frias takes a tough luck loss against Giants
    Carlos Frias was handed his first loss of the season despite limiting the Giants to one run in six innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: The only run he allowed scored on a Buster Posey RBI single to left-center in the third inning. Opposing starter Tim Hudson was just a little better at limiting the damage. Frias allowed seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. He's done a superb job since moving into the rotation, posting a 2.82 ERA with a 17/5 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings. He'll face the Padres at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:21 pm
  • Ramirez earns second straight win vs. Braves
    Erasmo Ramirez earned his second straight win Tuesday, allowing three runs over five innings against the Braves.

    Advice: Ramirez allowed just two hits and two walks, but the Braves collected all four in the second inning to put up a three spot. The right-hander struck out five and has now allowed runs in just one of his previous 10 innings spanning two starts. He's always had the talent, and the Rays certainly have job openings for him if he continues to pitch well. Ramirez will try to keep it going Sunday against the A's. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:08 pm
  • Sanchez pitches into the 8th in loss to LAA
    Aaron Sanchez pitched well but faltered late, ultimately picking up the loss after yielding three runs in 7 1/3 innings facing the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sanchez held the Angels to one run through six innings, but relented one in the seventh on a Chris Iannetta single and another in the eighth on a David Freese sacrifice fly. Overall, Sanchez gave up six hits, walked three, and struck out five. The right-hander has been inconsistent throughout the season and control has been an issue, but he has upside if he can figure things out. He sits with a 4.17 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP, and a 30/32 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings. Sanchez will match up with the Mariners at home in his next outing. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:47 pm
  • Santiago keeps rolling, tosses 7 solid frames
    Hector Santiago continued to pitch well as he picked up the win after holding the Blue Jays to two runs (one earned) in seven innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: With Tuesday's outing, the lefty has allowed one earned run or fewer in six of eight starts this season. He allowed only four hits and three walks while punching out five. Santiago has a stellar 2.25 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 44/21 K/BB ratio in 48 innings. He'll finish up the Jays' road trip on Sunday against the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:40 pm
  • Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) a DL candidate
    Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) has flown back to the Bay Area to be examined on Wednesday and is a candidate to be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Pomeranz had to exit Monday's start with soreness around the AC joint in his left shoulder. He was able to play catch Tuesday and seemed optimistic about his status, but the A's might elect to be cautious with him. More will obviously be known about his status after Wednesday's exam.

    Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) was able to play catch on Tuesday without issue.

    Advice: Pomeranz made an early departure from his start Monday against the Astros after experiencing some discomfort around the AC joint in his left shoulder. "Normal soreness," the southpaw said after his short throwing session Tuesday. "What I expected." It's not yet clear whether he'll be allowed to take his next scheduled turn in the A's starting rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Parra (neck) to begin rehab stint
    Manny Parra (neck) has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Parra recently dealt with some tenderness in his pitching elbow, but it's apparently not a big deal. The southpaw has been sidelined for about three weeks with a strained neck. He appears on track to rejoin the Reds' bullpen by the end of the month. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:22 pm
  • Drew Pomeranz dealing with AC joint soreness
    Drew Pomeranz revealed after Monday's game that the left shoulder issue he's dealing with is soreness in his AC joint.

    Advice: Pomeranz noted that he's had problems with the AC joint before and it has yet to cause him to miss a start. So, it sounds like even though the ailment forced him from Monday's outing that he might be able to make his next start. He figures to be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Pomeranz goes 4 1/3 in injury-shortened start
    Drew Pomeranz got a no-decision, giving up one run in 4 1/3 innings before departing with an injury against the Astros in Monday's win.

    Advice: The Astros scored their only run against Pomeranz in the first inning on an Evan Gattis sacrifice fly. Pomeranz gave up only two hits, but walked five while striking out only two. Walks are usually not an issue for the lefty, but he has walked five batters in two of his last three starts. He has a 4.40 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a 32/16 K/BB ratio in 43 innings. If Pomeranz is able to make his next start, it will be in Tampa against the Rays. Rotoworld.com

  • Drew Pomeranz leaves with shoulder tightness
    Drew Pomeranz left Monday's start against the Astros due to left shoulder tightness.

    Advice: It's too early to speculate about the seriousness, but obviously anytime the shoulder is involved it's not good. The A's should have more on Pomeranz's status following the conclusion of Monday's game, but a trip to the disabled list would seem to be likely. Rotoworld.com

  • Manny Parra suffers setback in recovery
    Manny Parra (neck) has been dealing with tenderness in his pitching elbow, which has pushed back his return to the Reds bullpen.

    Advice: Parra admitted, "I had a slight setback, but I'm trying to make progress. I'm good." Reds manager Bryan Price said he's close to pitching again, though he will need a few appearances on a minor league rehab assignment before he's cleared to return. Rotoworld.com
    May 17, 7:21 pm
  • Neftali Feliz no longer secure as closer
    Rangers manager Jeff Bannister said Sunday that there are currently no roles in the team's bullpen.

    Advice: That means that Neftali Feliz isn't secure as the team's closer, and anyone could emerge in high-leverage situations. Feliz has struggled thus far, posting a 5.51 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 15/7 K/BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings. One name to watch here could be hard-throwing right-hander Keone Kela, though he sports a troublesome 1.47 WHIP as well. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He'll need to get through some flat ground and bullpen session before that. Gausman is slated for Triple-A Norfolk's rotation once healthy but could eventually rejoin the Orioles in a relief role. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Duffy could be booted from rotation
    Royals manager Ned Yost indicated Sunday that Danny Duffy will need to show improvement in order to avoid being removed from the rotation.

    Advice: Yost said that Duffy will "probably" make his next scheduled start, but the left-hander is on thin ice after another poor showing Saturday. He has a 5.87 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 38 1/3 innings this season and could be replaced by Jason Vargas (elbow) when the latter is ready to return from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com

  • Eric O'Flaherty (shoulder) throwing again
    Eric O'Flaherty (shoulder) resumed a throwing program on Friday.

    Advice: He also threw on Saturday, playing catch from a distance of 90 feet. There's no word on a potential timetable for O'Flaherty's return, but the A's figure to be careful here. Rotoworld.com

  • Duffy allows three runs in loss to Yankees
    Danny Duffy surrendered four earned runs over five innings Saturday in the Royals' loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Duffy gave up a run on a Carlos Beltran sacrifice fly in the top of the third inning and then three runs on a Chase Headley homer in the top of the fifth. Duffy walked four and gave up four total hits in his third straight poor outing. He has a rough 2-3 record, 5.87 ERA, and 1.70 WHIP in 38 1/3 innings this season. A tough matchup with the cross-state Cardinals is next. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays likely to skip Erasmo Ramirez next start
    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays are likely to utilize Monday's off-day to skip Erasmo Ramirez' next start.

    Advice: Nate Karns is scheduled to pitch on Tuesday, then they are likely to throw Jake Odorizzi on Wednesday on his regular rest. That would push Ramirez back to Saturday against the Athletics. Even after throwing five scoreless innings his last time out, he isn't a recommended streaming option. Rotoworld.com

  • Doolittle to pitch in minors rehab game Sun.
    Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will pitch in a rehab assignment on Sunday.

    Advice: Doolittle's working his way back from a slight tear in his rotator cuff, diagnosed in late January. He's started to pitch in minor league games at High-A Stockton and will continue on that front in a rehab appearance on Sunday. He could be ready to return by late May or early June, though the A's are likely to ease him back into the closer's role. Rotoworld.com
