  • A.J. Achter recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled RHP A.J. Achter from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Achter threw a scoreless inning in his lone appearance with the big club last month. He'll work in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:00 am
  • Junior Guerra to start on Tuesday for Brewers
    The Brewers will recall Junior Guerra on Tuesday to make his first major league start against the Angels.

    Advice: A waiver claim from the White Sox last October, Guerra is a former infielder and reliever who turned 31 in January. He's put up a 4.63 ERA and 23/9 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings for Triple-A Colorado Springs this season. The right-hander is a wild card but could potentially be an interesting gamble in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:13 am
  • O's not naming closer while Britton out
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that he's not naming a closer while Zach Britton (ankle) is sidelined.

    Advice: It's not surprising with it looking like Britton will only be out a few days. Darren O'Day is probably first in line for saves while Britton is out, but Brad Brach and Mychal Givens are also possibilities. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:52 am
  • Tommy Kahnle optioned to Triple-A
    White Sox optioned RHP Tommy Kahnle to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: He's clearing space for the return of David Robertson from the bereavement list. Kahnle threw a scoreless inning in his brief time with the big club. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:28 am

    W, 7-1 @Bal
     
  • Chris Withrow optioned to Triple-A
    Braves optioned RHP Chris Withrow to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Withrow posted a 3.86 ERA and 4/5 K/BB ratio over seven relief innings with the big club. He'll get another shot eventually. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am

  • Brach, Givens could get shot to close for O's
    Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports that Brad Brach and/or Mychal Givens could be given a shot to close for the Orioles if Zach Britton (ankle) is out for a while.

    Advice: Britton exited Saturday's game with an ankle injury and will be re-evaluated on Sunday before the extent of the ailment is determined. The obvious option to replace him in the ninth inning would be Darren O'Day, although it's possible manager Buck Showalter could keep O'Day in his setup role and elevate Brach or Givens. Both Brach (1.26 ERA, 15/5 K/BB ratio over 14 1/3 innings) and Givens (3.00 ERA, 21/7 K/BB ratio over 12 innings) have been excellent this season, although it's possible Brad would have the edge out of the two given Givens' issues against left-handed batters. Brach also has more experience closing games in the minors. Both relievers are worth stashing in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:06 am
  • Phelps picks up first save in win vs Brewers
    David Phelps got the closing nod with A.J. Ramos unavailable in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Brewers and navigated an uneventful inning to pick up his first save since 2014.

    Advice: Phelps has been a high-leverage reliever for the Marlins, so it's not surprising to see him get the opportunity to close over Kyle Barraclough. The right-hander rewarded manager Don Mattingly's trust with a perfect ninth inning. As with many former starters who transition to the bullpen, he's seen his velocity and strikeout rates spike. The 29-year-old has 16 strikeouts in 15 innings and now owns a 1.20 ERA. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:41 pm
  • Gausman allows three runs against White Sox
    Kevin Gausman gave up three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against the White Sox.

    Advice: The right-hander was largely good, surrendering just four hits and a walk while striking out three, but his bullpen couldn't hold on to get Gausman his first win. He's been strong in both of his starts since coming off the disabled list, owning a 2.45 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in those starts. He'll seek that elusive first win Friday against the A's. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:11 pm
  • Bauer allows three runs in first start of '16
    Trevor Bauer allowed three runs over four innings in Saturday's start against the Phillies.

    Advice: Making his first start of the season after spending the first few weeks in the bullpen, Bauer was pedestrian against an even more pedestrian Phillies lineup. He allowed five hits, including a Freddy Galvis two-run homer, and walked two while striking out four. Bauer has an unsightly 5.28 ERA and 1.63 WHIP this season with 18 strikeouts in 15 1/3 innings, but with Carlos Carrasco sidelined for at least the next month Bauer will likely remain in the Indians' rotation. He'll look for a better showing Friday against the Royals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:20 pm
  • Will Smith (knee) to ramp up activity soon
    Will Smith (knee) will ramp up his activity next week.

    Advice: It's been nearly six weeks since he tore his right LCL. Smith will meet with doctors soon to decide if he'll require surgery, which would sideline him for the rest of the year. He was expected to compete with Jeremy Jeffress for closer duties this season but now Jeffress has the gig all to himself. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:13 pm
    15-Day DL
    W, 14-5 vs Mia
     
  • Chris Bassitt could need Tommy John surgery
    Chris Bassitt has been diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow and could require Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: It's another tough break for the Athletics who have been ravaged by injuries in their starting rotation. Bassitt will get a second opinion on Thursday to confirm the diagnosis, but it's very likely his 2016 season is over. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:18 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Phillies recall Colton Murray from Triple-A
    Phillies recalled RHP Colton Murray from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Murray will take the place of the injured Dalier Hinojosa in the Phillies bullpen. The 26-year-old hurler posted a 6.10 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 14/5 K/BB ratio across 10 1/3 innings at Triple-A. He'll be used in low-leverage situations. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:09 pm
  • Pirates option Rob Scahill back to Triple-A
    Pirates optioned RHP Rob Scahill to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Scahill became the odd-man out in the Pirates bullpen with Jared Hughes returning from the disabled list on Saturday. Scahill appeared in eight games for the Pirates, compiling a 6.00 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 5/3 K/BB ratio across six innings. He should get another opportunity with the big league club this summer.

  • Pirates activate Jared Hughes from 15-day DL
    Pirates activated RHP Jared Hughes from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: The right-hander has been sidelined since the spring with a strained lat, but is now fully recovered and ready to go. He'll work in his traditional middle relief role for the Pirates. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:45 am
  • Tyler Chatwood goes 6 1/3 scoreless in win
    Tyler Chatwood scattered five hits over 6 1/3 innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout of the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Advice: It's not saying a whole lot, but Chatwood certainly looks like the Rockies' ace from here; he's keeping the ball on the ground and he's amassed a 20/7 K/BB in 29 2/3 innings. It's been good for a 3-2 record and a 2.73 ERA to date. We're guessing he'll continue to be an above average starter, but with Coors weighing him down, he's a streaming option in mixed leagues at best. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:22 pm
  • Tommy Kahnle recalled from Triple-A
    Rockies recalled RHP Tommy Kahnle from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Kahnle held a 3.00 ERA and 12/3 K/BB ratio over his first nine relief innings for Charlotte. He's taking Daniel Webb's (elbow) spot in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:47 pm

  • Jared Hughes (lat) slated to return Sat.
    Jared Hughes (lat) is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: Hughes is with the club in Pittsburgh now, but they evidently want to give him at least a couple days of rest after he went two innings in his final rehab appearance Wednesday. He got a late start to the season due to a strained lat. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:04 pm
  • Chris Bassitt goes on DL with strained elbow
    Athletics placed RHP Chris Bassitt on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.

    Advice: It helps explain why Bassitt's velocity was down Thursday against the Tigers when he got pummeled for seven runs over 3 2/3 innings. It's unclear at this point how long Bassitt will be sidelined. Jesse Hahn will replace him in the rotation on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:44 pm
    15-Day DL
    L, 2-1 vs Hou
     
  • A's concerned with Bassitt's velocity drop
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said the club might want to get Chris Bassitt "checked out" due to a drop in velocity.

    Advice: According to Brooks Baseball, Bassitt was sitting around 92 mph with his fastball on Thursday against the Tigers while giving up seven runs on 10 walks over 3 2/3 innings. That's a couple ticks down from where he was when the season began. For what it's worth, Bassitt claims that he's fine physically. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:06 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Pirates vs. Rockies postponed at Coors Field
    Thursday's game between the Pirates and Rockies has been postponed due to wet weather in Denver.

    Advice: It was actually snowing at one point this morning at Coors Field. Tyler Chatwood was set to go for the Rockies and Juan Nicasio was scheduled for the Bucs. Those starters will presumably be pushed back to Friday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:37 am
  • Jared Hughes (lat) roughed up in AAA game
    Jared Hughes (lat) allowed three runs on five hits over two innings Wednesday in a rough minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Hughes also got hammered on Sunday with Triple-A Indy and will probably be asked to make at least one more appearance on the farm before activation. The right-hander has been out since the end of spring training because of a left lat strain. He owns a sharp 2.12 ERA in 131 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2014 campaign. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:02 am
  • Kevin Gausman pitches well in season debut
    Kevin Gausman pitched well in his season debut Monday, striking out seven over five frames of one-run ball in a loss to the Rays.

    Advice: He was out-dueled by Chris Archer, but it was an encouraging showing for Gausman, who was hitting the upper-90s regularly with his heater while flashing a nasty slider. The young righty did need 91 pitches to get through five innings, so he'll need to improve his efficiency. Gausman gets the White Sox this weekend. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:45 pm
  • Bauer to take Carrasco's spot in rotation
    Trevor Bauer will replace the injured Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) in the Indians' rotation.

    Advice: It was the logical move after Bauer allowed two runs on four hits and one walk in 3 1/3 innings in relief of Carrasco on Sunday against the Tigers. However, it's unclear when Bauer will make his first start. The 25-year-old has yet to live up to his potential in the majors, but his strikeout upside should have him on the radar in deeper fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Apr 25, 3:48 pm
  • O's activate RHP Gausman for season debut
    Orioles activated RHP Kevin Gausman from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Gausman was forced to begin the year on the disabled list due to right shoulder tendinitis, but he's ready to make his season debut Monday against the Rays. The 25-year-old has shown flashes of brilliance in the past and possesses breakout potential in 2016. Rotoworld.com Apr 25, 3:09 pm
  • Hughes (lat) set for rehab appearance
    Jared Hughes (lat) is scheduled to pitch two innings Monday for Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Hughes had to be scratched from a scheduled rehab outing last week due to flu-like symptoms, but he's feeling better now. If all goes smoothly from here, the right-hander could be cleared to join the Pirates' bullpen early next week. He has been out since the end of spring training because of a left lat strain. Rotoworld.com Apr 25, 5:48 am
  • Bauer touched up for pair of runs in relief
    Replacing the injured Carlos Carrasco in Sunday's win over the Tigers, Trevor Bauer yielded two runs on four hits over 3 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Carrasco was forced to exit stage left with a left hamstring strain after just 2 2/3 innings of work. He would give way to Bauer, who went on to strike out four and walk one. The 25-year-old right-hander posted a strong spring, but the Indians pushed him to the bullpen to start the regular season. In 11 1/3 innings (six appearances) he holds a 4.76 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 14/5 K/BB ratio. Depending on how long Carrasco's hamstring injury keeps him from pitching, Bauer could be in play for a few starts. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 1:39 pm
  • Chatwood gives up three in loss to Dodgers
    Tyler Chatwood only went four innings against the Dodgers on Saturday night and gave up three earned runs on six hits and two walks, striking out four.

    Advice: Chatwood barely kept the dangerous Dodgers at bay all night. He teed up a two-run homer to A.J. Ellis in the second inning, but it could’ve gotten much worse in the third had Joc Pederson not lined out to second base with the bases loaded. The right-hander thrives when he pounds the strike zone and induces a myriad of ground balls. On Friday, he needed 95 pitches to span four innings, and only 52 of those pitches went for strikes. That won’t often end well, especially at Coors Field. Nonetheless, Chatwood has been pretty good this year, posting a 3.47 ERA and a pair of wins in 23 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 8:39 pm
  • Chris Bassitt crushed in loss to Blue Jays
    Chris Bassitt was crushed by the Blue Jays on Saturday, surrendering six runs on nine hits over his five frames in a losing effort.

    Advice: Bassitt walked a pair and punched out five on the afternoon. He was a victim of the long ball, as Josh Donaldson clubbed a three-run homer against him and Troy Tulowitzki tacked on a solo shot. With this rough outing, Bassitt now owns a 4.44 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the year and could be a candidate to lose his rotation spot once Henderson Alvarez is ready to return. He'll look for better results against the Tigers in Detroit on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 12:54 pm
    15-Day DL
    L, 2-1 vs Hou
     
  • Gausman (shoulder) expected to return Monday
    Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is expected to return to the Orioles' rotation Monday against the Rays.

    Advice: Gausman was deemed ready after collecting nine strikeouts in Wednesday's rehab outing for Triple-A Norfolk. He's missed the last few weeks with shoulder tendinitis. Vance Worley will return to the bullpen when Gausman is activated. Rotoworld.com Apr 21, 2:12 pm
