  • Gregerson retires the side to earn 11th save
    Luke Gregerson worked a perfect ninth inning against the Angels on Saturday to earn his 11th save.

    Advice: Gregerson was given the day off Thursday after having worked each of the previous two days, but rested and ready he jumped right back into the ninth inning Saturday. And he had little trouble with the top of the Angels' lineup, retiring the side in order, culminating with a Mike Trout groundout to end the game. Gregerson owns a 3.18 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 22 appearances to date. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Nicasio can't get through 5th against Rangers
    Juan Nicasio failed to make it out of the fifth inning Saturday, allowing four runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Nicasio surrendered two home runs among his seven hits allowed. It was the third time in four starts that he's allowed four earned runs, raising his ERA to 4.79 through nine outings. The good news is he's striking out a batter per inning, but the bad news is that he's also giving up a hit per inning. Nicasio will try to get back on the right track Thursday at the Marlins.

  • Cingrani strikes out side to earn fourth save
    Tony Cingrani struck out three over a scoreless ninth inning to close out a 7-6 win over the Brewers on Saturday.

    Advice: The save was Cingrani's fourth of the season and his first in nearly two weeks. It was a reassuring showing from the southpaw, who is the team's closer for lack of a better option. Cingrani owns a 3.32 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 21 2/3 innings to date. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:55 pm
  • Lobstein optioned to Triple-A
    Pirates optioned LHP Kyle Lobstein to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: With Tony Watson returning from the paternity list, Lobstein returns to Triple-A. The 26-year-old southpaw has struggled at the big-league level this year, compiling a 4.79 ERA with a 14/10 K/BB in 20.2 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:49 pm

  • Watson returns from paternity leave
    Pirates re-instated LHP Tony Watson from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Watson welcomed a new son, Theodore, to the world this week. The 30-year-old reliever has been one of the steadiest middle relievers in the game in recent years. He owns a 2.18 ERA in 20 appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:47 pm
  • Lorenzen throws live BP session
    Michael Lorenzen (elbow) successfully threw live batting practice on Friday and is expected to toss a pair of innings in extended spring training in the very near future.

    Advice: Lorenzen sprained his right ulnar collateral ligament in spring, and this represents the most meaningful step in his rehab program. Although it's unclear whether he'll return as a starter or a reliever, fantasy owners should remain patient. He posted a 5.40 ERA in 113 1/3 innings a year ago, after all, and had both walk and home-run issues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:24 pm
    60-Day DL

  • Dodgers recall Casey Fien from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled RHP Casey Fien from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The right-hander is active and in uniform for Saturday's game against the Mets. He's taking the roster spot of Julio Urias who was optioned back to Triple-A on Saturday. Fien registered a 7.90 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 12/3 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings before he was cut by the Twins earlier in the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:56 pm
  • Corey Knebel to make four rehab appearances
    Corey Knebel is scheduled to make two rehab appearances with High-A Brevard and two appearances with Triple-A Colorado Springs before he returns to the Brewers bullpen.

    Advice: The right-hander is expected to work in a setup role upon his return to the Brewers. He registered a 3.22 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 58/17 K/BB ratio over 50 1/3 innings with the big league club in 2015. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:23 am
    15-Day DL

  • Blue Jays activate Aaron Loup from 15-day DL
    Blue Jays activated LHP Aaron Loup from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Loup has looked strong on his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo and is ready to return to a setup role in the Blue Jays bullpen. He has missed the entire season to date due to a flexor strain in his pitching elbow. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:48 am
  • Royals activate Chris Young from 15-day DL
    Royals activated RHP Chris Young from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander will work out of the bullpen, at least initially, upon his return. He registered a troublesome 6.88 ERA in his seven starts before hitting the disabled list, so he'll have to prove his worth in long relief before he gets another shot at the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:37 am
  • Christian Friedrich wins as a starter
    Christian Friedrich blanked the Diamondbacks for seven innings on Friday to win as a starter for the first time since July 2012.

    Advice: Friedrich made 16 starts for the Rockies as a rookie in 2012 and three more in 2014 (he missed all of 2013) before shifting to the pen. The Padres picked him off the scrap heap over the winter and decided to try him again as a starter. Lo and behold, it's worked, with the left-hander amassing a 1.65 ERA in his first three starts. We still don't trust him for fantasy purposes. For one thing, he's walked 10 in 16 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:31 pm
  • Pat Dean fans eight in win over Mariners
    Pat Dean beat the Mariners by allowing two runs over seven innings and striking out eight on Friday.

    Advice: He walked none. Dean's fastball is well below average, forcing him to be on point with his slider and changeup. He's more than held his own through two major league starts, but we wouldn't recommend him in AL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:22 pm
  • Chris Devenski goes 4 1/3 scoreless in relief
    Chris Devenski pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings after Mike Fiers' early exit Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: The 59-pitch outing was his second in relief since he was bumped from the Astros rotation last week. He would be the obvious choice to step in now if the team decided to demote Fiers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:09 pm
  • Chatwood spins gem vs. Giants at Coors Field
    Tyler Chatwood allowed just an unearned run over seven innings in Friday’s 5-2 win over the Giants.

    Advice: And at Coors Field, to boot. Chatwood allowed just four hits and walked none while striking out three batters. He’s the first Rockies pitcher to throw seven innings or more with zero earned runs and zero walks at Coors Field since Juan Nicasio did it on July 15, 2011. Yep, it has been a while. Chatwood entered Friday’s action with a 6.65 ERA in four starts at home this season, so we wouldn’t say that he has turned a new leaf here. While the peripherals aren’t overly impressive, he has managed a 2.69 ERA through 10 starts overall. He remains a decent matchup play, though this start won’t change the fact that he’s best utilized on the road. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:35 pm
  • McGee notches one-out save vs. Giants
    Jake McGee notched a one-out save Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: McGee was called upon after Miguel Castro gave up a two-out RBI single to Gregor Blanco to bring the Giants to within three runs. He only faced one batter and got pinch-hitter Kelby Tomlinson to pop out to third base to end it. Fantasy owners will happily take the save. The 29-year-old hasn’t allowed a run in nine straight appearances and owns a 3.38 ERA with 14 saves in 16 chances. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:33 pm
  • Chris Young will come back as reliever
    Royals manager Ned Yost said Friday that when Chris Young (forearm) returns from the disabled list, it will be as a reliever.

    Advice: He could be activated as soon as this weekend. Yost did at that he expects Young to eventually rejoin the rotation, but for now he'll be used in long relief. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:19 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 Thursday, 3:14 pm
  • Pirates recall Lobstein from AAA level
    Pirates recalled LHP Kyle Lobstein from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Lobstein is filling in for lefty Tony Watson, who went on the paternity leave list Wednesday in a corresponding move. Lobstein, 26, holds a 5.24 career ERA. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:24 am

  • Pirates place Tony Watson on paternity leave
    Pirates placed LHP Tony Watson on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Watson will be excused for the next 3-5 days to welcome a new child. The left-handed reliever owns a 2.18 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 20 2/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:19 am
  • Loup (elbow) throws scoreless inning at AAA
    Aaron Loup (elbow) threw another scoreless inning Tuesday night at Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Loup got roughed up in his rehab debut May 14 at High-A Dunedin, but he's made four scoreless appearances since with four strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings. The left-hander should be cleared to join Toronto's bullpen this weekend. He's been out all year because of a flexor strain in his pitching elbow. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:06 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:04 pm
  • Knebel (oblique) to throw pen session Wed.
    Corey Knebel (oblique) is scheduled to throw a 45-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll treat it like a two-inning appearance, with a break somewhere in the middle of those 45 pitches. The next step for Knebel will be live batting practice, then a rehab assignment. He's probably at least two weeks away from his 2016 major league debut. Knebel registered a promising 3.22 ERA and 58 strikeouts in 48 appearances last season for the Brewers and will slide back into a setup role when he's ready. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:48 pm

  • Nicasio's next turn will be against Rangers
    Juan Nicasio's next start will come this weekend at the Rangers.

    Advice: Nicasio was scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Rockies, but a rainout shifted that game to Monday afternoon and Ryan Vogelsong will take the hill on regular rest. This gives the struggling Nicasio some extended time off. He has a rough 6.46 ERA in three May starts after registering a 3.33 ERA over five starts in April. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:24 am
  • Loup (elbow) pitches scoreless rehab inning
    Aaron Loup (elbow) pitched a scoreless eighth inning in his rehab debut with Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

    Advice: Loup worked around a double by inducing three groundouts. The left-hander has been out all season due to a flexor strain in his throwing elbow. He should be an option for the Toronto bullpen by the end of this week. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:02 am
  • Chatwood holds Bucs to one run in no-decision
    Tyler Chatwood limited the Pirates to one run over six innings but settled for a no-decision Saturday.

    Advice: Chatwood allowed six hits and walked two, but he was matched by counterpart Jon Niese, who also allowed one run during his tenure. Chatwood has quietly put together a very good 2016 thus far, posting a 3.02 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through nine starts. He's one of the reasons the Rockies are in second place in the NL West. Speaking of the NL West, Chatwood will take on the division-rival Giants on Friday. Rotoworld.com May 21, 7:16 pm
  • Pat Dean logs quality start against Blue Jays
    Pat Dean logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday, surrendering two runs on three hits over six strong innings.

    Advice: Dean punched out five on the afternoon while walking two. The only blemish on his day came on a two-run blast off the bat of Jose Bautista in the third inning. It's unclear if he'll draw another start for the Twins, or head back to a long relief role in the club's bullpen. Rotoworld.com May 21, 1:40 pm
  • Aaron Loup moves rehab work to Triple-A
    Aaron Loup (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Advice: Loup had been working at High-A Dunedin, so the move to the higher level of competition is a good sign toward an impending return. The southpaw has been sidelined the entire season to date due to a flexor strain in his pitching elbow. Rotoworld.com May 21, 9:07 am
  • Christian Friedrich exits start in fourth
    Christian Friedrich lasted 3 1/3 innings and allowed two runs in his start Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Friedrich is much more likely to help the Padres as a reliever than as a starter, but the team wanted to give him a look in the latter role with its depth getting hammered. A change will come eventually. Rotoworld.com May 20, 11:24 pm
  • Devenski moving back to Astros' bullpen
    Chris Devenski is moving back to the Astros' bullpen.

    Advice: Houston was rolling with a six-man rotation for a bit, but Devenski will now return to the long relief role that he occupied at the opening of the 2016 season. The 25-year-old right-hander owns a cool 3.24 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 28/9 K/BB ratio over his first 33 1/3 innings (four starts, six relief appearances) with the Astros. He'll be thrown right back into the rotation mix if there's an injury. Rotoworld.com May 19, 8:55 am
