    Tony Cingrani (shoulder) threw a pair of scoreless innings in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

  • Derek Holland (shoulder) throws off mound
    Derek Holland (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's thrown off a mound since he went down with a subscapular strain in his left shoulder in early April. There's currently no timetable for Holland's return, but he should be able to begin a rehab assignment before long. Rotoworld.com

  • Jameson Taillon to have hernia surgery
    Pirates pitching prospect Jameson Taillon will undergo surgery next week to repair an inguinal hernia.

    Advice: The procedure will sideline him for two months. It's some more rotten luck for Taillon, who now is facing a second straight lost season after rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. Taillon will turn just 24 over the winter but will need to make up for the time he's lost. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs acquire Clayton Richard from Pirates
    Cubs acquired LHP Clayton Richard from the Pirates in exchange for cash considerations; purchased his contract from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Richard could have opted out of his deal, but instead the Pirates will get a little money to move him elsewhere. The veteran left-hander will start on Saturday versus the Marlins, as the Cubs have sent down Donn Roach. Richard hasn't pitched in the majors since 2013 but has had a nice year at Triple-A Indianapolis, posting a 2.09 ERA over nine starts. He struck out just 25 over 56 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Tom Koehler holds Cubs in check Friday
    Tom Koehler limited the Cubs to just one run across six innings in a 2-1 win Friday.

    Advice: Koehler yielded just five hits -- four singles -- on the day, striking out four while issuing one free pass and hitting a batter. He was pulled after six even though he'd thrown just 91 pitches, but the move proved to be a wise one as the Marlins' bullpen took care of business. Koehler boasts a 2.88 ERA over eight starts since re-joining the rotation after a brief demotion to the bullpen. He'll get the Reds at home next week to close out his first half. Rotoworld.com

  • Corbin (elbow) to make 2015 debut Saturday
    Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut on Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Corbin had been slated for one more rehab start, but the Diamondbacks felt that he looked ready on his rehab assignment so they will bring him back a little early. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, the left-hander put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 rehab innings. Ideally, fantasy owners should give him at least a start or two before sticking him back into their lineup. Rotoworld.com

  • Andy Oliver opts out of contract
    Rays released LHP Andy Oliver.

    Advice: Oliver has exercised the opt-out clause in his minor league contract. He posted a 3.86 ERA with 32 strikeouts over 28 innings at Triple-A Durham, but walks remained an issue for him with a whopping 24 free passes. Rotoworld.com

  • Cory Rasmus activated, then optioned
    Angels activated RHP Cory Rasmus from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Rasmus has successfully rehabbed from core muscle surgery but needs some time in the minors to sharpen things up. He'll be back with the Angels in the second half. Rotoworld.com

  • Drew VerHagen recalled from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled RHP Drew VerHagen from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: VerHagen was moved to the bullpen this season and will get a shot with the big club despite a 5.73 ERA between Double- and Triple-A. He'll operate in middle relief. Rotoworld.com

  • Parker close to strengthening exercises
    Jarrod Parker (elbow) will be out of his sling and begin strengthening exercises in a week.

    Advice: It's a nice step in what will be a long road back. Parker is not expected back this season after having surgery in May to stabilize the medial epicondyle fracture in his right elbow. Rotoworld.com

  • Felix Doubront called up from Triple-A
    Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Felix Doubront from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The Jays need a fifth starter following the demotion of Matt Boyd, although it's unclear whether Doubront will immediately be thrust into the rotation. The left-hander has earned a shot with some nice work at Buffalo, where he's posted a 2.44 ERA and 43/18 K/BB ratio over 48 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Alvarez (shoulder) to return just after break
    Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) is expected to rejoin the Marlins' rotation shortly after the All-Star break.

    Advice: Plagued all season by inflammation in his pitching shoulder, Alvarez will need a rehab assignment but it's unclear when he'll begin one. The right-hander has been limited to just four starts this season due to injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Doc 'a little more concerned' about Nolasco
    Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Dr. Robert Anderson "was a little more concerned" about Ricky Nolasco (ankle) after a visit Thursday.

    Advice: Nolasco is dealing with a bone fragment in his right ankle and has been unable to throw off a mound without pain. There's been no decision made yet as far as surgery goes, but it may be a foregone conclusion. It's unclear how long Nolasco would be sidelined if he does go under the knife. Rotoworld.com

  • Hellickson has 27/2 K/BB rt. in last 4 starts
    Jeremy Hellickson tossed seven innings of one-run ball and struck out six in Thursday's triumph over the Rockies.

    Advice: He only allowed three hits and didn't walk a batter. Don't look now, but Hell Boy boasts a 27/2 K/BB rate over his last four starts, bagging quality starts in three of them. At long last he can be trusted in NL-only leagues. He gets the Rangers next time around. Rotoworld.com

  • Elias gives up 3 runs in loss to the A's
    Roenis Elias surrendered three runs on three hits across six innings in a loss to the A's on Thursday.

    Advice: He struck out seven and walked one. Elias was touched for two runs in the first, mostly settling in for a smooth five innings to come after that. Unfortunately, Scott Kazmir put up eight zeroes across from him, dropping Elias to 4-6 with a 4.27 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. Rotoworld.com

  • Corbin (elbow) could make debut Saturday
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Patrick Corbin (elbow) could make his season debut Saturday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Corbin was expected to make a final rehab start Thursday, but the club is holding him back with the idea that he could be needed with the big club sooner. Corbin owns a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 minor league innings as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Corbin is worth owning, if not starting, in all fantasy leagues.

  • Corbin (elbow) on track for July 7-8 return
    Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut for the Diamondbacks on either July 7 or 8 in Texas.

    Advice: Corbin will make one final rehab start on Thursday to complete his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The left-hander has put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 innings across four rehab starts to this point but has reportedly been hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. Despite the nice velocity, fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach with Corbin rather than trusting him right away. Rotoworld.com

  • Nolasco (ankle) to see another specialist
    Ricky Nolasco (ankle) will visit foot/ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte on Thursday.

    Advice: Nolasco had yet another setback with his right ankle last Friday when he had to cut a bullpen session short. The Twins had been optimistic that he could avoid surgery, but that might not be the case anymore. More should be known about his status later this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Cingrani (shoulder) to begin rehab Friday
    Tony Cingrani (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

    Advice: If all goes well, he could be back with the Reds by the All-Star break. The 25-year-old went on the disabled list earlier this month with a strained left shoulder. All 24 of Cingrani's appearances this year have come out of the bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeremy Hellickson gives up seven runs in loss
    Jeremy Hellickson gave up seven runs and 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Hellickson started on five days' rest tonight after dealing with back and side injuries last time out. Whether that had any effect on his performance tonight is unclear; he had a bad outing, but then, it's not unusual for him to have bad outings. He's 5-5 with a 5.38 ERA for the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Koehler gives up two runs in win over Dodgers
    Tom Koehler allowed two runs over seven innings in a win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Advice: Koehler gave up just six hits without issuing a walk, besting Clayton Kershaw in the victory. He improved to 5-3 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.26 WHIP overall. Koehler will next square off with the Cubs in Chicago on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Patrick Corbin k's five in rehab start Friday
    Patrick Corbin (elbow) punched out five hitters over six innings of work in his latest minor league rehab start with Double-A Mobile on Friday.

    Advice: Corbin gave up two runs on four hits and a pair of walks in the outing. He built his stamina up to 87 pitches in this outing and will require just one more rehab start before rejoining the Diamondbacks rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Nolasco suffers setback in bullpen session
    Twins manager Paul Molitor said Friday that Ricky Nolasco's (ankle) bullpen session "did not go well".

    Advice: By all accounts, Nolasco's recovery from his ankle injury has hit a wall. The Twins were optimistic he would be able to avoid surgery and make a relatively quick return to the rotation, but this doesn't sound encouraging. Rotoworld.com

  • Elias bombed for 7 runs in 4th inning of loss
    Roenis Elias was shelled in a loss to the Royals on Wednesday, yielding seven runs on five hits across 3 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Elias breezed through three shutout innings until the wheels fell off abruptly in the fourth. The 26-year-old left-hander struck out two and walked one in the clunker. He'll tote a 4.25 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his next start in San Diego. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:02 pm
  • Hellickson (back, side) set for next start
    Jeremy Hellickson (back, side) will make his next scheduled start Saturday.

    Advice: It wasn't initially clear that Hellickson had sustained an injury, but he underwent an MRI on his back and side after his Sunday start. The results came back clean, though, and Hellickson will be good to go Saturday at the Padres. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:16 pm
  • Derek Holland (shoulder) nearing mound work
    Derek Holland (shoulder) is expected to be cleared to resuming throwing off a mound when he has a follow-up MRI on July 3.

    Advice: Holland is currently long-tossing from 120 feet and having no issues. "We’re going very slow, not by my choice," Holland said. "After the MRI we’re hitting the gas pedal." The left-hander isn't expected to rejoin the Rangers' rotation until at least late July. Rotoworld.com

  • Felix Doubront in consideration for promotion
    Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports that Felix Doubront is the "likeliest candidate" to be called up to serve as the Blue Jays' No. 5 starter.

    Advice: The Jays had been considering skipping the fifth spot for a turn, but they now might give Drew Hutchison some extra rest after he threw a season-high 109 pitches in five innings Monday. Doubront, who was inked to a minor league deal just before Opening Day, holds a 2.85 ERA and 38/14 K/BB ratio over 41 innings for Triple-A Buffalo this season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:47 pm
  • Tony Cingrani (shoulder) resumes throwing
    Tony Cingrani (shoulder) has resumed a throwing program.

    Advice: It's not clear when he'll be cleared for mound work, but the Reds expect Cingrani back prior to the All-Star break. He's been on the shelf for the last week with a strained left shoulder. Rotoworld.com

  • Corbin (elbow) to make two more rehab starts
    Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make two more rehab starts before rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation.

    Advice: Corbin holds a 6.55 ERA and 6/5 K/BB ratio over 11 innings in his first three rehab outings. It's not a pretty bottom line, but the good news is that he's reportedly hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. The lefty is a worth stash for fantasy owners, but they probably shouldn't be expecting a whole lot right out of the gate. Rotoworld.com

  • Taillon dealing with abdominal pain
    Pirates prospect right-hander Jameson Taillon (elbow) is being held out of game activity due to lower abdominal pain.

    Advice: Taillon was originally expected to start for the Pirates' GCL team on Tuesday, which would have been his first official rehab start as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery, but that plan is on hold for now. He apparently began feeling symptoms after his last start in extended spring training last week. No word on how long he'll be sidelined, but the good news is that it isn't related to his elbow.
