  • Yankees recall lefty James Pazos from AAA
    Yankees recalled LHP James Pazos from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Pazos had a 3.00 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 12 innings this season at the Triple-A level, but control remains a serious issue for the 24-year-old left-hander. He's walked 90 batters in 211 2/3 professional frames. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:36 pm
  • Matt Andriese fans 14 in no-decision Tuesday
    Rays RHP prospect Matt Andriese tallied a career-high 14 strikeouts over seven shutout frames Tuesday for Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Andriese went up against Pirates top prospect Jameson Taillon in an epic pitcher's duel. Neither starter allowed a run in their combined 14 innings of work. Andriese actually made 25 appearances for the Rays last season, so he isn't really a prospect anymore. The 26-year-old has done a fine job for Durham this year, earning a 3.41 ERA with an 11.54 K/9 over six starts. Andriese may make a few spot starts here and there, but he's going to have a tough time cracking Tampa Bay's loaded starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:40 am

  • Beimel is auditioning for teams this week
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Joe Beimel is auditioning for interested teams this week.

    Advice: Beimel is 39 years old and had some shoulder problems in 2015, but he should be able to find an opportunity somewhere. The free agent left-hander holds a 3.12 ERA, 1.278 WHIP, and 47/30 K/BB ratio over his last 92 1/3 major league innings dating back to the beginning of the 2014 season. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:40 am

  • Boxberger (abdomen) throws another bullpen
    Brad Boxberger (abdomen) threw another successful 30-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: Boxberger worked in some changeups and sliders in anticipation of the next step of his rehab, which will be facing live hitters. He'll head to the Rays' spring training complex Friday to begin simulated work. The right-hander is probably two weeks away -- maybe a little less -- from joining the back end of the Tampa Bay bullpen. Rays fill-in closer Alex Colome is sitting on a 3.00 ERA and five saves.

  • Young removed before getting through five
    Chris Young lasted just 4 2/3 innings Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits in a no-decision against the Nationals.

    Advice: Young's final line doesn't look awful, but he served up two home runs and got into a bases loaded jam in the fifth when Royals manager Ned Yost finally pulled the plug. It was the third time in six starts that Young has failed to get out of the fifth inning, and he's gone six innings or more just once. He's got a 5.76 ERA and 1.45 WHIP heading into Monday's start at the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Guerra earns win in first major league start
    Junior Guerra allowed four runs over six innings to earn the win over the Angels in his 2016 debut on Tuesday.

    Advice: Guerra gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out three in the outing. The 31-year-old wasn't only making his 2016 debut, he was also making his first-ever MLB start. Guerra will try to make it two for two when he faces the Reds on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Twins recall J.R. Graham from AAA level
    Twins recalled RHP J.R. Graham from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Graham will give the Twins' bullpen the fresh arm it so badly needs. He had an underwhelming 4.95 ERA and 53/21 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings for Minnesota last year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:46 pm
  • Arodys Vizcaino converts third save
    Arodys Vizcaino nailed down his third save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: On to protect a three-run lead, Vizcaino got a strikeout of Curtis Granderson and then a groundout and flyout to end it. Vizcaino has received just four save chances and blown one of them, but he's also allowed just one earned run over 10 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:22 pm
  • O'Day picks up save in O's win over Yankees
    Darren O'Day picked up a save Tuesday in the Orioles' win over the Yankees.

    Advice: O'Day got the call in the ninth with Zach Britton nursing an ankle injury and worked around a Carlos Beltran leadoff single to net his second save of the season. O'Day's other save was on April 7 against the Twins, with Britton getting a routine day off. Britton isn't expected to be out much longer, so there's no reason to go nuts for O'Day in a non-holds league. He is a truly excellent setup man, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:10 pm
  • Sergio Romo (elbow) throwing at 90 feet
    Sergio Romo (elbow) has stretched his flat-ground throwing to 90 feet.

    Advice: And he's experienced no issues thus far, though these are just the initial steps. Romo landed on the disabled list April 14 with a right flexor strain and will probably continue to be eased along in his rehab. We wouldn't expect him to be an option for the Giants' bullpen again until sometime after mid-May. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:48 pm

  • Kontos (elbow) throws 40 pitches off mound
    George Kontos (elbow) threw 40 pitches off a bullpen mound Tuesday and felt fine.

    Advice: He'll make a simulated appearance on Friday and should then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. Kontos, a bullpen workhorse for the Giants in 2015, has been out since April 19 due to a flexor strain. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:46 pm

  • Mariners lose Tony Zych to rotator cuff issue
    Mariners placed RHP Tony Zych on the 15-day disabled list with rotator cuff tendinitis.

    Advice: Zych was rocking a 3.00 ERA and 19 strikeouts through 12 innings this season out of the Mariners' bullpen, and he boasts a 2.67 ERA in 30 1/3 career major league frames. It's not clear when the 25-year-old right-hander might be able to pitch again. Steve Johnson got the callup from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday to provide relief depth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:17 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Thayer opts out of minors deal with Dodgers
    According to MLB Trade Rumors, Dale Thayer has opted out of his minor league contract with the Dodgers.

    Advice: Thayer latched on with the Dodgers after spring training and had a 6.75 ERA with 10 strikeouts and two walks over eight innings. The 35-year-old will look for an opportunity elsewhere. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:58 am

  • Harris (elbow) cleared to resume throwing
    Mitch Harris (elbow) has been cleared to resume a throwing program.

    Advice: Harris got the go-ahead after a checkup with Dr. George Paletta on Monday. The 30-year-old was forced to begin the season on the disabled list with compression syndrome, which is a nerve issue in his right elbow. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:15 am

  • Brewers recall RHP Guerra from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled RHP Junior Guerra from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Guerra will start Tuesday against the Angels. Claimed off waivers from the White Sox last October, the 31-year-old had a 4.63 ERA and 23/9 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings over four starts in Triple-A. He made three relief appearances for the White Sox last season, but this will be his first major league start. Fantasy owners have better options to choose from. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:36 am
  • Kontos throws 30-pitch bullpen without issue
    George Kontos (elbow) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session without issue on Sunday.

    Advice: It's the second time over the weekend that the right-hander has been able to throw without any problems. He should be sent out on a minor league rehab assignment soon and is on track to rejoin the Giants bullpen in early May. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:59 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Brad Boxberger (abdomen) to face hitters soon
    Brad Boxberger (abdomen) will throw live batting practice late this week.

    Advice: Boxberger threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday and will throw one more 'pen session early this week before being allowed to face hitters. He's not far off from a rehab assignment and is poised to return in mid-May. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:46 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 8:52 am
  • George Kontos (elbow) throws off mound
    George Kontos (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's thrown off a mound since being diagnosed with a flexor tendon strain. Kontos should be ready for a rehab assignment before long. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:44 pm

  • Ross Detwiler designated for assignment
    Indians designated LHP Ross Detwiler for assignment.

    Advice: Detwiler holds a 5.79 ERA this season and a 7.14 mark since the beginning of 2015. He'll surely have to settle for a minor league deal somewhere. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:51 am

  • Chris Young gives up three runs in loss
    Chris Young gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Royals to fall to 1-4 on the season.

    Advice: Young gave up two homers, accounting for the three runs. He was strong his previous time out against the Orioles, but that's still his only quality start in five tries this year. His rotation spot might be tenuous. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:16 am
  • Boxberger (abdomen) throws 25-pitch bullpen
    Brad Boxberger (abdomen) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: According to the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin, Boxberger's bullpen consisted mostly of fastballs, with five or six changeups tossed into the mix. The 27-year-old right-hander is recovering from a mid-March core muscle surgery. He could rejoin the Rays by the middle of May if he doesn't hit any bumps in his rehab over the next few weeks.

  • Boxberger (abdomen) cleared to advance rehab
    Brad Boxberger (abdomen) has been cleared by his surgeon to begin intensive baseball activities.

    Advice: Boxberger has already been throwing bullpen sessions and should be just about ready to face live hitters. The right-hander needed surgery on March 18 for a core muscle. He's on track for a mid-May activation date. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:33 pm

    George Kontos (elbow) has played catch on back-to-back days.

    Advice: Kontos landed on the disabled list last week a right flexor strain. While he's beginning to ramp things up, Giants manager Bruce Bochy estimates that he's still a couple of weeks away from returning. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:29 pm

  • Romo (flexor strain) to play catch Friday
    Sergio Romo (flexor strain) will play catch on Friday.

    Advice: Romo landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a right flexor strain and he's now ready to test his progress. He's still a ways off from rejoining the Giants' bullpen. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:20 pm
