  • Tommy Milone moved to Twins' bullpen
    Tommy Milone has been moved to the Twins' bullpen.

    Advice: There had been whispers of him having a start skipped, but apparently he'll be removed from the rotation altogether. Milone has posted a 5.40 ERA over five starts this season. Ricky Nolasco will move up to start Sunday and Alex Meyer will replace Milone in the rotation. Rotoworld.com 19 minutes ago
  • Nick Ahmed sitting out on Friday
    Nick Ahmed is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Jean Segura has slid over to shortstop, and Brandon Drury will play second base. Rotoworld.com 26 minutes ago
  • Jon Moscot (shoulder) to make next start
    Jon Moscot (shoulder) is expected to make his next start.

    Advice: Moscot had some soreness in his surgically-repaired left (non-throwing) shoulder on Wednesday in his last outing, but there's apparently no cause for concern. He's scheduled to face the Giants next week. Rotoworld.com 45 minutes ago

  • Tommy Milone could have turn skipped
    Tommy Milone could have his next turn in the rotation skipped.

    Advice: Milone's spot comes up Sunday, but the Twins could start Ricky Nolasco on regular rest or possibly go with Alex Meyer. The left-hander holds a 5.40 ERA in his five starts and his time in the Twins' rotation might come to a close soon. Rotoworld.com 52 minutes ago
  • Matt McBride optioned to Triple-A
    Athletics optioned 1B/OF/C Matt McBride to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: McBride was only up with the big club for a couple days. He didn't appear in a game. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago

  • A's promote Sean Manaea for Friday's debut
    Athletics purchased the contract of LHP Sean Manaea from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Manaea will make his major league debut on Friday against the Astros. Acquired from the Royals last season in the Ben Zobrist deal, Manaea has put up a 1.50 ERA and 21/4 K/BB over 18 innings this season at Nashville. He should get a chance to stick around for good if he pitches well, particularly with Chris Bassitt (elbow) going on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com 59 minutes ago

  • Michael Fulmer recalled for MLB debut
    Tigers recalled RHP Michael Fulmer from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Fulmer will make his major league debut on Friday against the Twins. He's posted a 4.11 ERA and 20/5 K/BB ratio across 15 1/3 innings for Toledo this season and the top prospect isn't a bad streaming option. Fulmer is replacing Shane Greene (blister) and isn't a given to stick around long. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:42 am
  • Shane Greene (blister) placed on DL
    Tigers placed RHP Shane Greene on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a middle finger blister.

    Advice: The blister didn't heal fast enough for Greene to make his scheduled start this weekend, so the Tigers are playing it safe. He should be back soon. Michael Fulmer is taking Greene's rotation spot. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:40 am
    15-Day DL
    5:10 pm @Min
     
  • Michael Foltynewicz likely to start Monday
    Michael Foltynewicz is expected to start for the Braves on Monday versus the Mets.

    Advice: He's expected to take the rotation spot of Bud Norris, who is headed to the bullpen. Tyrell Jenkins was also mentioned as a possibility to take Norris' spot, but it appears the duty will fall to Foltynewicz. The hard-throwing right-hander holds a 2.05 ERA and 20/14 K/BB ratio across 22 frames for Triple-A Gwinnett this season. He'll likely provide strikeouts but not much else for fantasy owners.

  • Luis Garcia optioned to Triple-A
    Phillies optioned RHP Luis Garcia to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Garcia was only up for a few days, throwing one scoreless inning with the big club. He should get another shot with Philly at some point this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:19 am

  • Adam Morgan recalled from Triple-A
    Phillies recalled LHP Adam Morgan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Morgan will start on Friday against Cleveland, taking the rotation spot of Charlie Morton (hamstring). The left-hander held a 3.57 ERA in his first three starts for Lehigh Valley but isn't a strong fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:17 am

  • Erasmo Ramirez to remain in bullpen?
    Rays manager Kevin Cash indicated Thursday that it's possible Erasmo Ramirez will remain in the team's bullpen.

    Advice: Ramirez has made just one start so far, as the Rays have essentially gone with a four-man rotation given all of their off days. They'll need a regular fifth starter in May, but Cash sounds like he likes the idea of keeping Ramirez in the bullpen. "He's been impacting us in a big way and he's done it in an even bigger way (as a reliever," Cash said. If the Rays do wind up keeping Ramirez in the bullpen, that could open the door for Blake Snell. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:59 am
  • Jeremy Hazelbaker insists he oblique is fine
    Jeremy Hazelbaker was checked for a possible oblique injury during Wednesday's game, but he took batting practice Thursday and said he was "good to go."

    Advice: Hazelbaker looked to stretch out his back/oblique after a swing in the eighth inning Wednesday. Although he insists he's fine, it's notable because he was not among the many left-handed bats the Cardinals started Thursday. Keep an eye on this, as it wouldn't be a surprise if Hazelbaker were attempting to hide an injury here given his situation. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:45 am
  • Ketel Marte heating up at the plate
    Ketel Marte is 13-for-30 at the plate over his last seven games, pushing his average from .186 to .288.

    Advice: He's also batted either first or second in three of those games after a slow start resulted in him being moved to the No. 9 spot. "I’ve made some adjustments to see the ball better," Marte said. "And when I get my pitch, that’s what I do. I hit in the cage every day. I work with Robby (Cano) and (hitting coach) Edgar Martinez. They’ve helped me a lot." Rotoworld.com Today, 9:38 am
  • Jason Motte (shoulder) throws bullpen session
    Jason Motte (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: Motte is working his way back from a strained right shoulder and appears to be making progress. It seems like he should be ready to begin a rehab assignment before long. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:09 am
    15-Day DL

  • Hermann clocks two-run homer in win over STL
    Chris Herrmann went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Herrmann also struck out twice, but he at least made his lone hit count. The 28-year-old backstop clocked a two-run shot off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha in the second inning. The dinger was his second of the season. That aside, he has seen just 28 at-bats this season and offers no fantasy upside. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:12 pm
  • Shane Greene (finger) to be placed on the DL
    MLive.com's Chris Lott reports that Shane Greene (finger) will be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Greene was pulled after three innings in his last start due to a blister issue on his right middle finger and on Monday manager Brad Ausmus indicated that Greene was uncertain for his next start. It is apparently worse than just uncertain, as it appears the 27-year-old right-hander will need at least another week to heal. Top pitching prospect Michael Fulmer is expected to be called up to start against the Twins on Friday. While the team hasn't yet committed to more than one start, Fulmer should be considered rosterable in mixed leagues on a speculative basis. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:00 pm

  • Moscot gives up four runs in just five frames
    Jon Moscot went five innings against the Mets on Wednesday, giving up three runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks.

    Advice: Moscot did his best to make up for suspect defensive work before leaving with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. The Reds’ defense committed three errors, which probably should’ve resulted in more runs than it did considering the fact that Moscot allowed eight baserunners on his own. Still, he finished with just one run credited to him. Before worrying about him in fantasy leagues, though, remember that he has more earned runs (7) and walks (9) than strikeouts, as well as a potential left (non-throwing) shoulder injury.

  • Jon Moscot undergoes X-ray on shoulder
    Jon Moscot underwent an X-ray on his surgically-repaired non-throwing shoulder.

    Advice: Per MLB.com's Mark Sheldon, the Reds are hoping that this is just scar tissue breaking up in Moscot's shoulder rather than something more serious. The 24-year-old right-hander underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder last June. In his first two starts this season, Moscot had allowed seven runs (six earned) on nine hits over 10 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:39 pm

  • Report: Tigers to promote top prospect Fulmer
    Mlive.com's Chris Lott hears that the Tigers will promote RHP prospect Michael Fulmer for a Friday start against the Twins.

    Advice: The Tigers acquired Fulmer last summer as part of the trade that sent Yoenis Cespedes to the Mets. The 23-year-old right-hander is the club's top pitching prospect. In three starts at Triple-A Toledo, he holds a 4.11 ERA and 20/5 K/BB ratio across 15 1/3 innings. His larger sample numbers from 2015 are more impressive. Splitting time between Single and Double-A, he posted a 2.24 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 125/30 K/BB ratio over 124 2/3 innings. Shane Greene is reportedly about to hit the disabled list with a blister issue, so Fulmer is worth picking up in mixed leagues, though he isn't guaranteed to stick in the majors once Greene has returned to health. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:01 pm
  • A's calling up Sean Manaea for Friday debut
    Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports the Athletics are calling up pitching prospect Sean Manaea to start Friday night against the Astros.

    Advice: Manaea, acquired from the Royals last year in the Ben Zobrist deal, boasts a 1.50 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 21/4 K/BB in 18 innings (three starts) this season at Triple-A Nashville. He warrants a pickup in mixed fantasy leagues, even if the stay is not an extended one. The young lefty will be making his major league debut. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:55 am

  • A's add Matt McBride from AAA Nashville
    Athletics purchased the contract of 1B/OF/C Matt McBride from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: McBride will take a spot on the A's bench. He's been playing some catcher this year for Nashville and can function as a backup at multiple positions for Oakland, but the 30-year-old is a .199/.228/.305 career MLB hitter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:28 am

  • Phillies expected to call up Adam Morgan
    Adam Morgan was scratched from his scheduled outing Wednesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: The Phillies are expected to promote Morgan so he can start Friday's game against Cleveland. He could draw a handful of starts while Charlie Morton works his way back from a hamstring injury. Morgan has posted a 3.57 ERA in his first three starts for Lehigh Valley.

  • Jeremy Hazelbaker homers, doubles off bench
    Jeremy Hazelbaker had a two-run homer and an RBI double after taking over for an injured Matt Holliday in Monday's game.

    Advice: Hazelbaker is now 5-for-11 with three homers, two doubles and seven RBI coming off the bench this year. He's been fine in his starts, too, hitting .268/.304/.512 in those 10 games, but it's as a sub that he's truly shined. It looked like he'd be spending more time on the bench going forward after cooling off some of late, but if Holliday is hobbled (early word is that it was just a cramp), that would change. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:55 pm
  • Tommy Milone struggles again Monday
    Tommy Milone yielded two runs over just 4 2/3 innings but escaped with a no-decision in Monday's 4-3 win over the Indians.

    Advice: Milone did strike out five, but he yielded seven hits and walked a pair. The left-hander has failed to go five innings in three of five starts this season and now holds a 5.40 ERA. The Twins have options with Alex Meyer, Tyler Duffey and Jose Berrios, so you have to figure Milone's rotation spot is on thin ice. He's currently scheduled to face the Tigers this weekend. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:59 pm
  • Greene (finger) questionable for next start
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that Shane Greene (finger) is still up in the air for his next start.

    Advice: Greene was forced to exit Sunday's start against the Indians due to a blister on his right middle finger. Matt Boyd, Buck Farmer, and Michael Fulmer are among the options to fill in if he isn't ready by Friday's game against the Twins. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:50 pm

  • Nick Ahmed ejected in 12th inning on Sunday
    Nick Ahmed was ejected during the 12th inning of Sunday's game against the Pirates for arguing a questionable third strike.

    Advice: While he may have had a point, as the pitch looked like it should have been ball four, it put the D'Backs in quite a predicament as they didn't have any position players remaining. Shelby Miller was forced into the game to play left field due to Ahmed's ejection. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:18 pm
  • Shane Greene departs outing with blister
    Shane Greene left Sunday's start against the Indians with a blister on his right middle finger.

    Advice: Greene issued a leadoff walk to Francisco Lindor in the top of the fourth inning before being visited by a trainer and eventually walking off. The righty wound up being charged with one run over three-plus frames. It's unclear at this point whether the blister might prevent Greene from making his next start. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:13 am

  • Luis Garcia recalled from Triple-A
    Phillies recalled RHP Luis Garcia from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Garcia was a surprise cut late in spring training but will get a shot now. He posted a 3.51 ERA with 63 strikeouts over 66 2/3 innings for the Phils last season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:56 am

  • Hazelbaker clobbers pinch-hit homer in win
    Jeremy Hazelbaker didn't start in Saturday's 11-2 win over the Padres, but he entered the game in the seventh inning as a pinch hitter and clobbered a three-run shot.

    Advice: Hazelbaker had been the latest "Random Cardinal Who Suddenly Becomes Good." He's now hitting .311/.340/.689 on the year. However, the 28-year-old journeyman had only started two games since April 15, and his home run was his first base hit since April 14. It seems the clock may finally be getting close to striking midnight, even if he was able to sneak in a bit more excitement before the fairytale ends. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:57 pm
  • Ahmed gets on base three times in win
    Nick Ahmed got on base three times in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Pirates, scoring a pair of runs.

    Advice: Ahmed doesn't have a dynamic bat, but walked twice and singled to provide a spark in the middle-third of the Diamondbacks' batting order. He is now hitting .226/.284/.403 in 67 PA. Defense will always remain his calling card, and his glove has been good enough to keep him in the everyday lineup, despite the weak bat. His fantasy relevance is limited to NL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:25 pm
  • Herrmann doubles, homers in loss
    Chris Herrmann went 2-for-3 with a double, a homer and a walk, driving in four runs in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Herrmann had one hit in 21 plate appearances prior to this outburst. He's now hitting .130/.200/.348 on the young season, which actually mirrors his .146/.214/.272 rather closely from a year ago with the Twins. He's not fantasy relevant. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:14 pm
  • Moscot gives up four runs in messy outing
    Jon Moscot tiptoed around three hits and four walks, somehow only surrendering four runs (three earned) in five innings on Friday night against the Cubs.

    Advice: Moscot was shaky with his command on Friday. Things could’ve gotten completely out of hand in the fourth inning because after he gave up a solo homer to Anthony Rizzo, the Cubs had already plated a pair and had runners at second and third with just an out. Moscot managed to wiggle his way out with only one more run crossing the plate. Still, his struggles showed his thin margin for error at the big-league level. He owns a 5.06 ERA and isn’t relevant in any fantasy format. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:12 pm

  • Erasmo Ramirez notches fourth win
    Erasmo Ramirez recorded his fourth win by getting four outs in relief Thursday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Ramirez had to be awfully disappointed to be left out of the Rays' rotation to begin the year, but here he is tied for the major league lead in wins 2 1/2 weeks into the year. Three of those wins have come in relief, the other in a spot start against the White Sox last weekend. He had been slated to start Saturday, but that assignment will likely have to go to someone else after Thursday's relief appearance. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:06 pm
  • Milone knocked around in loss to Brewers
    Tommy Milone gratefully accepted a no-decision after getting knocked around for four runs in 4 2/3 innings on Wednesday night against the Brewers.

    Advice: Milone racked up a high pitch count against a suddenly-patient Brewers club, throwing 102 pitches in under five innings. He managed to strike out six, but ultimately gave up a quartet of runs on five hits and two walks. Of course, the lefty is what he is at this point in his career, a back-end starter who doesn’t strike out enough batters to be interesting and doesn’t prevent enough runs to be rosterable. He now has a 5.87 ERA in 15 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 pm
  • Ketel Marte out of Mariners' lineup Wed.
    Ketel Marte is out of the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Marte is batting just .186 with a .436 OPS in 12 games this season. Luis Sardinas will start at shortstop and bat ninth against Indians righty Danny Salazar. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:27 am
  • Hazelbaker out of Cardinals' lineup Wed.
    Jeremy Hazelbaker is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Hazelbaker got off to an incredible start this season, but he went 0-for-4 on Tuesday night and is hitless in his last 14 at-bats. We all knew some regression was coming. Matt Holliday is in left field, Randal Grichuk is in center, and Stephen Piscotty is in right on Wednesday afternoon versus Chicago. Matt Adams will get the start at first base. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:54 am
  • Hazelbaker in 0-for-14 slide back to earth
    Jeremy Hazelbaker went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's game against the Cubs, leaving him hitless in his last 14 at-bats.

    Advice: There was bound to be a learning curve eventually -- surprising as it is, he wasn't going to hit .526 forever -- and it certainly seems as though he's battling it. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny continued to bat him second Tuesday, although that may end as well given the Cardinals' struggles to score runs in the series. If this is the carriage quickly turning back into a pumpkin, it was one of the more fun pumpkins to root for in the first few weeks of the season, at least. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:08 pm
  • Greene battered by Royals for seven runs
    Shane Greene was knocked around by the Royals on Tuesday, allowing seven runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss.

    Advice: Greene gave up six hits and walked four in the outing. The result was a disappointment after he struck out seven in a quality start his last time out. Overall, Greene has a 7.15 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 11 1/3 innings on the year. A meeting with the Indians is scheduled for Sunday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:53 pm
    15-Day DL
