  • Giles fills in for Gregerson for first save
    Ken Giles handled ninth-inning duties against the Orioles on Thursday, allowing one run on two hits before shutting the door to earn his first save of the season.

    Advice: Luke Gregerson had thrown 43 pitches over the previous two days, so it was Giles who got the call to close out the Orioles. Two singles in the inning produced a run, but Giles got Chris Davis to ground out as the tying run to end the game. Giles has settled down after a miserable start to the year, posting a 2.62 ERA this month with 13 strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings. The closer's job is still Gregerson's to lose, but Giles looks more like a viable alternative, should Gregerson stumble, than he did a few weeks ago. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:37 pm
  • Gausman coughs up three homers against Astros
    Kevin Gausman allowed four runs over five innings -- all on home runs -- in a loss to the Astros on Thursday.

    Advice: Gausman gave up just five hits on the evening, but three of them -- two solo blasts by George Springer, and a two-run shot by Luis Valbuena -- left the yard. Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play? Dingers aside, Gausman pitched well, striking out seven while walking one. He owns a 3.24 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with a 37/9 K/BB ratio in seven starts this year, and he'll try to get on the right side of the ledger Tuesday against the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:29 pm

  • Bryan Morris (back) might need surgery
    Bryan Morris (back) acknowledged he might need surgery.

    Advice: In fact, Morris went as far as to say that "surgery is the only option that can fix what is the issue." Manager Don Mattingly agreed that Morris' lumbar disc herniation probably isn't a "15-day thing." All signs are pointing to an extended absence for the 29-year-old. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:46 pm

  • Drew VerHagen out with undisclosed injury
    Drew VerHagen returned to Detroit for an MRI on Thursday.

    Advice: Triple-A Toledo placed him on the disabled list with an undisclosed injury. VerHagen has a history of back issues, having missed most of the 2014 campaign with a stress fracture. We should know more on his status Friday. VerHagen was sent to the minors Sunday after posting a 7.11 ERA in his first 19 outings for Detroit. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:32 pm

  • C.J. Riefenhauser outrighted to Iowa
    Cubs sent LHP C.J. Riefenhauser outright to Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: He cleared waivers after being designated for assignment. The Cubs' 40-man roster is now down to 37. The 26-year-old owns a 7.30 ERA over 15 outings for Iowa this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:35 pm

  • Yost says Chris Young close to being activated
    Royals manager Ned Yost said Chris Young (forearm) looked "fantastic" in Thursday's simulated game.

    Advice: Young was placed on the disabled list with a strained forearm earlier this month but has made a quick recovery and should return to the Royals' rotation in relatively short order. The right-hander pitched surprisingly well during Kansas City's postseason run last year but has struggled to a 6.88 ERA over seven starts in 2016. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:14 pm

  • Braves recall Withrow from Triple-A Gwinnett
    Braves recalled RHP Chris Withrow from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: He'll be taking Casey Kelly's spot on the active roster. Withrow has been lights out in the minors, allowing just one unearned run over 8 1/3 innings for Gwinnett. He produced a respectable 3.86 ERA over 10 appearances for the Braves earlier this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:55 pm
  • David Goforth called up in place of Capuano
    Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: He's taking over for Chris Capuano, who was placed on the disabled list with elbow inflammation. Goforth spent a couple weeks in the majors earlier this year, logging a 7.20 ERA over four outings. He's pitched to a 3.93 ERA in 13 appearances for Colorado Springs. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:06 pm
  • O's cut the cord on RHP Eric Fornataro
    Orioles released RHP Eric Fornataro.

    Advice: He signed a minor league deal with Baltimore in April but only stuck for about six weeks. Fornataro posted an ugly 8.10 ERA in 10 appearances for Double-A Bowie before getting axed. The 28-year-old made eight appearances for the Cardinals in 2014 but hasn't been to the majors since. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:47 pm

  • Reds outright Steve Delabar to AAA level
    Reds sent RHP Steve Delabar outright to Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: Delabar was pushed off the 40-man roster on May 21 and had option of electing free agency, but he will instead stay with the Reds as organizational relief depth. The right-hander should get another shot at some point this summer if he can find a groove at the Triple-A level. Delabar had a 6.75 ERA, 1.88 WHIP, and 10/10 K/BB ratio in eight innings with Cincinnati prior to the DFA. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 pm

  • Chasen Shreve has sprained left AC joint
    Chasen Shreve has been diagnosed with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder.

    Advice: Shreve apparently suffered the injury Wednesday while giving up three runs on two homers and a single as the Yankees fell to the Blue Jays. He received a cortisone injection on Thursday and won't pick up a baseball for at least a week. It's probably going to be a lengthy absence for the lefty reliever. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:36 pm

  • Dodgers option Luis Avilan to AAA OKC
    Dodgers optioned LHP Luis Avilan to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: This move clears a roster spot for top pitching prospect Julio Urias, who is scheduled to make his major league debut on Friday night at Citi Field. Avilan has allowed three earned runs in one inning (four appearances) this season out of the Los Angeles bullpen. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:04 pm

  • Yankees option Chasen Shreve to AAA
    Yankees placed LHP Chasen Shreve on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury.

    Advice: Shreve surrendered three runs on two homers and a single Wednesday in the Yankees' loss to the Blue Jays, watching his season ERA rise from 4.00 to 5.21. And he apparently woke up Thursday with an abnormal amount of discomfort in his throwing shoulder. Richard Bleier is taking over the vacant bullpen spot. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:31 am

  • Marlins recall Nick Wittgren from AAA level
    Marlins recalled RHP Nick Wittgren from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Wittgren will give the Fish some much-needed bullpen depth while setup man Bryan Morris recovers from a herniated disc in his back. Wittgren has allowed five hits, four walks, and two earned runs in 5 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:59 am
  • Marlins place Bryan Morris (back) on DL
    Marlins placed RHP Bryan Morris on the 15-day disabled list with a lumbar disc herniation.

    Advice: Nick Wittgren has been called up from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding roster move. Morris also dealt with back problems in 2015 and doesn't carry an exact recovery timetable. It could be a while. He had registered a 3.06 ERA through 17 2/3 innings this year out of the Miami bullpen. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:57 am
    15-Day DL

  • Torres picks up surprise save in extras
    Carlos Torres got the surprise save by pitching a perfect 13th inning of Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Braves.

    Advice: Torres breezed through a 1-2-3 inning to secure his first save since 2014. He's been a workhorse for the Brewers' bullpen, as he's already covered 23 1/3 innings and has a respectable 3.47 ERA with 22 strikeouts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Guerra throws five scoreless in no-decision
    Junior Guerra struck out six and walked four over five scoreless frames against the Braves on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Guerra continued to find success with his splitter, and he’s now fanned 17 batters in his last two starts. His command wavered, especially against lefties, but that’s to be expected with the 31-year-old reliever-turned-starter. Guerra has a 3.30 ERA in 30 innings for the Brewers and should continue to be a sneaky source of strikeouts, even if he’ll potentially hurt a fantasy squad’s ratios. He’ll next get the Cardinals at Miller Park in a tough matchup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Chris Young (forearm) throws 35-pitch pen
    Chris Young (forearm) threw a successful 35-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: Young said it went well, and that he's planning for a simulated appearance Thursday or Friday. The veteran right-hander has been on the disabled list since May 12 with a forearm strain and he had a brutal 6.88 ERA over his first seven starts. He shouldn't be owned in standard fantasy formats.

  • Dodgers recall Avilan from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled LHP Luis Avilan from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Avilan made three appearances with the Dodgers back in April and owns a 4.97 ERA and 15/9 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings in Triple-A this season. The 26-year-old will give the Dodgers a fresh arm in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:42 pm

  • Tigers option Drew VerHagen back to Triple-A
    Tigers optioned RHP Drew VerHagen to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: The Tigers have struggled to patch together the middle innings between their rotation and closer Francisco Rodriguez, with VerHagen being the latest casualty. Buck Farmer will replace him in the Tigers bullpen. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:19 pm

  • Kevin Gausman puts clamps to Angel offense
    Kevin Gausman was sharp in taking a no-decision in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Angels, tossing 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Gausman scattered eight hits while striking out six and walking one. The only run he allowed came when Yunel Escobar worked an RBI single in the seventh inning. The 27-year-old right-hander now holds a sweet 2.70 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 30/8 K/BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings (six starts). He will hit the road less traveled for a date with the Indians next time out.

  • Steve Delabar designated for assignment
    Reds designated RHP Steve Delabar for assignment.

    Advice: The Reds clearly aren't happy with their bullpen. In addition to designating Delabar for assignment, the team also optioned Keyvius Sampson and Jumbo Diaz to Triple-A Louisville. The Reds are hoping to keep Delabar around as minor league depth but he'll have to clear waivers first. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:50 pm

  • Junior Guerra fans 11 in beating Cubs
    Junior Guerra yielded three runs in seven innings and fanned 11 as the Brewers beat the Cubs 5-3 on Thursday.

    Advice: The Brewers are now 4-0 in Guerra's starts, even though he gave up four runs in each of the first two. The 31-year-old journeyman had almost as many strikeouts today as in his first three starts combined (13). He still seems like a weak bet in fantasy leagues, but he's a nice story, regardless.
