  • Logan Morrison (wrist) grounded out Tues.
    Logan Morrison (wrist) grounded out as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It was his first plate appearance in eight days. LoMo has been battling tendinitis in his wrist and forearm but could very well return to the starting lineup Wednesday. He's slashing .231/.308/.376 with 10 home runs and 31 RBI in 86 games this season for Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:38 am

  • Duvall crushes a pair of home runs in defeat
    Adam Duvall went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three total RBI in Tuesday's 9-7 loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Duvall hit a two-run shot off Matt Cain with one out in the sixth inning for home run No. 1, then followed it up with a solo blast in the eighth for home run No. 2. He was on-deck at the time Jay Bruce whiffed to end the game with a runner on in the top of the ninth. Bruce represented the tying run. These were Duvall's first two home runs since the All-Star break and give him 25 for the season as a whole. He owns a .247/.294/.545 triple-slash over 336 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Giants rock Reed for six runs as Reds fall
    Cody Reed was deconstructed in Tuesday's loss to the Giants, yielding six runs (five earned) on nine hits over five innings.

    Advice: Reed's moment of infamy in this one came when he surrendered a three-run homer to opposing number Matt Cain in the second inning. The 23-year-old southpaw has surrendered at least four runs in every one of his seven starts bar one and holds little fantasy value. He will try to lower his 7.07 ERA and 1.79 WHIP in a home date with the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Grandal rocks mammoth solo homer in win
    Yasmani Grandal went 1-for-3 with a long solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Grandal absolutely unloaded on a Chris Archer offering to lead off the seventh inning, hitting a moonshot solo home run to right. The tater was his 14th of the season. While that is a healthy home run total for a catcher, the 27-year-old backstop has struggled to do much else with the bat and is hitting just .211/.330/.430 over the course of 228 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Bud Norris brilliant into seventh vs Rays
    Bud Norris turned in a gem in Tuesday's win over the Rays, hurling 6 1/3 innings of scoreless ball.

    Advice: Norris struck out six and walked two on the evening. He allowed a double to Evan Longoria and a single to Steve Pearce. And that was it. Pearce's single with one out in the seventh inning would cause manager Dave Roberts to make the call to the bullpen. The crisp outing is made all the more remarkable for the fact that Norris threw 23 pitches out of the pen in the 15th and 16th innings against the Cardinals on Friday. His last three starts prior to Tuesday saw him allow 14 runs on 21 hits in 15 innings. The outing before that stretch? Six innings of two-hit, shutout ball. Norris' inconsistency equals out to a 4.27 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 92/35 K/BB ratio over 99 innings between the Braves and Dodgers. He will try to keep things together in a home start against the Red Sox next time he toes the rubber. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Gallo shows off oppo power on first home run
    Joey Gallo hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: So it begins. Gallo muscled a Sonny Gray pitch to left-center in the fifth inning to get the Rangers on the board. It was his only hit in four at-bats, and he struck out in two of the four at-bats. That's a typical Gallo night, as he'll strike out plenty but he hits it plenty far when he makes contact. The power makes him fantasy relevant, but the propensity to swing and miss makes him a high-risk, high-reward player. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm

  • Crisp has RBI double, homer against Rangers
    Coco Crisp went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a solo home run in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Crisp got the scoring started with a solo blast in the fourth inning, and he capped it with his RBI double in the ninth. The homer was his eighth of the year and his first since June 26. The 36-year-old outfielder is batting .237/.304/.405 with 41 RBI, 40 runs scored and five steals through 80 games to date. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:52 pm
  • Semien hits 21st homer in win over Rangers
    Marcus Semien went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Semien connected for a solo dinger off Rangers starter Nick Martinez in the fifth inning, his 21st big fly of the year. That's easily a personal best for the 25-year-old, who will also set a new high for RBI in a season this year. Overall, Semien is hitting .236/.303/.460 with 49 RBI, 49 runs scored and nine steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Rich Hill (blister) could start Sunday in CLE
    Rich Hill (finger) is tentatively scheduled to return to the A's rotation Sunday in Cleveland.

    Advice: Hill first has to make it through a bullpen session Friday. He hasn't appeared in a game since July 17 because of a blister on his left middle finger, but his recent throwing sessions with a protective cover have gone well. The veteran southpaw is one of Oakland's top trade chips leading up to the August 1 deadline, boasting a 2.25 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 90/28 K/BB ratio in 76 innings this season.

  • Corbin gives up four runs against Brewers
    Patrick Corbin allowed four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Corbin struck out six, a positive, but he also gave up six hits and walked three in his five innings of work. The no-decision means he still hasn't picked up a win this month, and he's just 4-9 through 21 starts overall. Corbin will work on improving his record, as well as his ugly 5.31 ERA and 1.55 WHIP, when he takes on the Dodgers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Garza registers quality start against D'backs
    Matt Garza allowed three runs over six innings Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Garza gave up five hits and walked two in the quality start, his first such start in over a month and only his second QS in eight starts this year. Despite that, he didn't factor in the decision, leaving his record at 1-4 with a 5.74 ERA and 1.68 WHIP. Garza will try again for that second win Sunday against the Pirates. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Skaggs dominates Royals in first 2016 start
    Tyler Skaggs showed no rust in carving up the Royals on Tuesday, allowing just three hits over seven scoreless innings in the Angels' 13-0 victory.

    Advice: Making his first major league start since July 31, 2014, Skaggs was brilliant, needing just 88 pitches to get through his seven innings. He walked one and struck out five before exiting. The 25-year-old, who is working his way back from elbow and shoulder issues, had similar success in minor league rehab starts leading up to Tuesday, so it wasn't a total surprise, but dominating Triple-A opponents and flaying the defending World Series champs are two different things. Skaggs is definitely worth a mixed league flyer, and we'll get a better idea of what we're looking at when he squares off with the potent Red Sox offense on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Giavotella has three hits, three runs Tuesday
    Johnny Giavotella went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs scored Tuesday against the Royals.

    Advice: Giavotella also threw in a stolen base for good measure. The big night raised Giavotella's line to .267/.293/.390 with 28 RBI, 43 runs scored and four steals. It certainly had to feel good coming against his former team to boot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Calhoun has two hits, four RBI in win over KC
    Kole Calhoun went 2-for-5 with a double and four RBI in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Amazingly, Calhoun did his damage over four different at-bats. The outfielder hit an RBI double in the first inning before collecting an RBI groundout in the fourth, a sacrifice fly RBI in the sixth and another run-scoring groundout in the ninth. They all look the same in the scorebook, as they say, and his four RBI gives him 54 RBI on the year. The 28-year-old is hitting .283/.364/.431 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:07 pm
  • Gee rocked for 10 hits, five runs by Angels
    Dillon Gee's return to the rotation didn't go quite as planned Tuesday, allowing 10 hits and five runs over five innings in a loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Gee didn't have many answers for the Angels' bats, as four of the 10 hits went for extra bases, including a home run off the bat of Carlos Perez. It wasn't an encouraging showing after Gee had been bumped from the rotation by Brian Flynn last week. Given his 4.54 ERA and 1.60 WHIP, there's a decent chance the Royals once again look for a better option before Gee's turn comes up this weekend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • LoMo (wrist) expected to return Wednesday
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said he expects Logan Morrison (wrist) to return Wednesday.

    Advice: LoMo had been aiming to return Tuesday, but the decision was made to give his ailing forearm and wrist a little bit more rest. Steve Pearce is starting at first base for the Rays on Tuesday night against the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:22 pm

  • Gallo at 1B and batting sixth Tuesday night
    Joey Gallo is starting at first base and batting sixth on Tuesday night against the Athletics.

    Advice: Mitch Moreland is at designated hitter and Jurickson Profar is starting at shortstop. Gallo will probably get the majority of his playing time at first base, with Moreland seeing a dip in action. The 22-year-old slugger was sporting a .939 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at Triple-A Round Rock. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:59 pm

  • LoMo (wrist) remains out Tuesday vs. LAD
    Logan Morrison (wrist) is out of the Rays' lineup again on Tuesday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Morrison has been out a full week because of tendinitis in his wrist and forearm. Steve Pearce is starting at first base for Tampa Bay on Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:39 pm

  • Rangers promote 22-year-old slugger Gallo
    Rangers recalled INF/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Gallo has posted a .949 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at the Triple-A level. Plate discipline remains an issue for the 22-year-old, but he has incredible raw power and could take on significant fantasy value if he finds a good offensive groove and regular playing time in Texas. Gallo has appeared in 23 games at first base and 33 games at third base this year with Round Rock. He played a lot of left field last year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:35 pm

  • Angels call up Tyler Skaggs for season debut
    Angels recalled LHP Tyler Skaggs from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Skaggs is over the elbow and shoulder troubles that have cost him nearly two years and will make his 2016 debut on Tuesday night in Kansas City. He dominated in his final two minor league rehab starts, racking up a combined 26 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings for Triple-A Salt Lake. Get the 25-year-old southpaw activated in all standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm
  • Hill (finger) to throw bullpen Wednesday
    Rich Hill (finger) is scheduled to throw his next bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hill has been throwing with a protective cover on his finger and it's unclear whether he has made enough progress to shed it. The southpaw hasn't pitched since July 17, but the A's remain hopeful he'll be able to make a start before the end of the team's current road trip. It's worth noting that the road trip runs right through the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:51 pm

  • Crisp (neck) could play Tuesday
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said after Monday's game that Coco Crisp (neck) might be ready to play Tuesday.

    Advice: Crisp has missed back-to-back games due to neck soreness, but he was able to take batting practice Monday. Consider him day-to-day for now. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:46 pm
  • Crisp (neck) out again Monday
    Coco Crisp (neck) is out of the Athletics' lineup for the second straight day Monday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Crisp was scratched Sunday due to neck soreness and the A's don't want to take any chances given his history. Consider him day-to-day. Jake Smolinski will start in center field and bat second. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:01 pm
  • Hill describes blister as 'hot spot'
    Rich Hill described the blister on his left middle finger as "a little hot spot," but said that it's healing.

    Advice: Hill, who left a start on July 17 after just five pitches, threw a bullpen session Sunday while wearing a protective cover on his finger. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to action, but some clarity would be nice as August 1 approaches. The southpaw is one of the top starting pitchers on the trade market.

  • LoMo (wrist) expected to return Tuesday
    Logan Morrison (wrist) is expected to return to the Rays' starting lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Morrison hasn't appeared in a game in a week due to wrist and forearm tendinitis. He was given a cortisone injection Thursday and it is apparently improving the situation. LoMo wanted to play Sunday versus the A's but manager Kevin Cash decided to use Monday's scheduled team off day to get the 28-year-old a bit more rest. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:10 am

  • Dillon Gee expected to start on Tuesday
    Dillon Gee is expected to start on Tuesday against the Angels.

    Advice: Gee was swapped out in favor of Brian Flynn for one turn in the rotation, but it appears the Royals will go back to Gee now. The right-hander holds a 4.19 ERA over 19 appearances -- five starts -- for Kansas City this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:00 pm
  • Coco Crisp scratched with neck injury
    Coco Crisp was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to neck soreness.

    Advice: Crisp has a history of neck issues, although there's been no indication that this is more than a day-to-day thing. The A's put Yonder Alonso in the lineup in Crisp's place, moving Danny Valencia to right field and Jake Smolinski to center. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:06 am
  • Logan Morrison (wrist) remains out of lineup
    Logan Morrison (wrist) remained out of the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Morrison hasn't played in a week due to a wrist issue. Rays manager Kevin Cash said recently that the injury was getting worse, although the club obviously hasn't placed LoMo on the disabled list yet. Steve Pearce is at first base Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:42 am

  • Tyler Skaggs to make season debut Tuesday
    Tyler Skaggs will make his season debut for the Angels on Tuesday in Kansas City.

    Advice: Skaggs has completed his rehab from Tommy John surgery and also from a shoulder ailment that cropped up earlier this season. The usual caution should be applied here with anyone coming back from Tommy John surgery, but Skaggs was dominant of late for Triple-A Salt Lake, allowing just two runs while striking out 26 over his last 12 2/3 frames. He's worth a flier in deeper mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:20 am
  • Rich Hill (blister) to throw pen session Sun.
    Rich Hill (blister) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: He'll wear a cover on his finger where a blister has developed and is refusing to go away -- that cover, by the way, can't be worn in a live game. The veteran left-hander lasted just five pitches in his first start out of the All-Star break, back on July 17. Hill is one of Oakland's better trade chips leading up to the August 1 deadline, but he obviously needs to get past this. There is no timetable for his return to the Athletics' rotation.

  • Coco Crisp breaks tie in 13th
    Coco Crisp singled in Ryon Healy in the bottom of the 13th for the only run as the A's beat the Rays 1-0 on Friday.

    Advice: It was Crisp's only hit of the night, but it came at a good time. He should be starting to lose playing time with the A's needing to go younger down the stretch, but Bob Melvin just can't give him up. He's batting .196/.268/.235 in 51 at-bats this month. He's led off 12 times for the A's in July and scored just twice. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:49 pm
  • Bud Norris takes loss in 16th
    Two days after starting, Bud Norris took a loss in relief after giving up a homer in the 16th inning Friday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Norris pitched a scoreless 15th, but he gave up the homer with one out in the 16th. It's unclear if he'll make his next start as scheduled on Tuesday, though he should have sufficient time to recover. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:36 pm
  • Rich Hill (blister) plays catch again Friday
    Rich Hill (blister) played catch again on Friday without any issues.

    Advice: There is still no timetable to get the veteran left-hander back on the mound, as they are playing things very cautiously not to make the injury worse. It seems likely that he'll be ready to pitch at some point next week, which could be his only showcase for team's interested in acquiring Hill before the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:34 pm

  • Yasmani Grandal (illness) back in lineup
    Yasmani Grandal (illness) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Grandal was unavailable Thursday due to a stomach bug. He's catching and batting sixth against Michael Wacha and the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:54 pm
  • Marcus Semien sitting out on Friday
    Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Danny Valencia is also sitting out, as the A's are going with Arismendy Alcantara at shortstop, Yonder Alonso at first base, Khris Davis in the designated hitter spot, Jake Smolinski in center field and Coco Crisp in left. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:46 pm
  • Yasmani Grandal battling stomach virus
    Yasmani Grandal was unavailable on Thursday due to a stomach virus.

    Advice: It's the same ailment that's kept Corey Seager out of action for three games. Whether either player is available to play on Friday in St. Louis remains to be seen. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:57 am
  • Rich Hill (blister) plays catch again Thurs.
    Rich Hill (blister) played catch Thursday for the second straight day.

    Advice: However, he did so with a covering on the finger where he has a blister. Hill will not be ready to start on Sunday, as the A's will give the ball to Jesse Hahn. The left-hander should be ready at some point next week, which would likely be his last chance to start prior to the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:22 am

  • Garza yields four ER in fourth straight loss
    Matt Garza allowed five runs -- four earned -- over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Garza gave up eight hits, including a home run, while walking two in the start. The loss was his fourth in a row after going 1-0 in his first three starts. The right-hander has a 5.94 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in his seven starts this year, and he'll look to break the losing streak Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Logan Morrison (wrist) not in Rays lineup
    Logan Morrison (wrist) is not in the Rays starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Rays manager Kevin Cash admitted Thursday that Morrison is dealing with a wrist issue that's getting worse, prompting a visit to the doctor on Thursday. Tim Beckham is starting in his place at first base against Sonny Gray and the A's on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:15 pm

  • Norris pounded for six runs on three homers
    Bud Norris struck out eight batters in five innings but gave up six runs in the process, taking a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Three of the seven hits he gave up sailed over the wall. He falls to 5-8 with a 4.53 ERA in 91 1/3 innings. Norris had a good stretch of starts in May and June but has since reverted to his usual mediocre self. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:14 pm
  • Skaggs (shoulder) fans 12 in rehab start
    Tyler Skaggs (shoulder) looked in midseason form during Wednesday's rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake, striking out 12 over 5 2/3 scoreless innings.

    Advice: Skaggs yielded just one hit over his 5 2/3 innings of work. He is nearing a return to the majors after undergoing Tommy John surgery in the August of 2014. Several setbacks have prevented him from a speedier recovery. The 25-year-old southpaw could rejoin the Angels next week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:34 pm
  • Corbin's struggles continue in loss to Jays
    Patrick Corbin struggled in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays, yielding six runs (five earned) on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Corbin has now allowed at least five runs in each of his last five starts. Josh Donaldson set the tone by whacking a two-run homer off the southpaw in the first inning and things just snowballed from there. Corbin will bring a 5.38 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into his next scheduled start, a road date with the Brewers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:25 pm
  • Rich Hill (blister) doubtful for Sunday start
    Rich Hill (blister) is doubtful to be ready Sunday.

    Advice: That's the next time Oakland needs a starting pitcher, but Hill's blister is not quite healed. This obviously comes with bad timing for the A's, who will be trying to trade the veteran southpaw ahead of the August 1 deadline. He boasts a 2.25 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 90/28 K/BB ratio in 76 innings this season but has made just three starts since the end of May. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:13 pm

  • Adam Duvall out of Reds' lineup Wednesday
    Adam Duvall is out of the Reds' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Braves.

    Advice: Jose Peraza will start in left field and bat seventh versus Atlanta right-hander Lucas Harrell. It's a routine day off for Duvall, who's sitting on 23 home runs and 64 RBI. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:38 am
  • Grandal connects for 13th homer against Nats
    Yasmani Grandal hit his 13th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: The dong was Grandal's first since a three-homer game leading into the All-Star break. He's got 38 RBI and 22 runs scored to go with a disappointing .208/.321/.429 line on the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:33 pm
  • Cody Reed solid in no-decision
    Cody Reed held the Braves to a pair of unearned runs over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

    Advice: With the huge caveat that it came against the Braves, it's still Reed's best outing in six tries as a major leaguer. He'll have to do something similar against a legitimate offense before he'll be worth activating in NL-only leagues. The Giants qualify, and he'll get them next time out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Rich Hill (hand) questionable for next start
    A's manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that it's too early to tell whether Rich Hill (blister) is going to be able to take his next turn in the rotation.

    Advice: Hill left his last start Sunday versus the Blue Jays after aggravating a blister on his throwing hand. It's something that has been bothering him since before the All-Star break. Melvin said the A's are trying to avoid placing Hill on the disabled list -- he is one of their top trade chips -- but couldn't offer up any guarantees. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:29 pm

  • Skaggs (shoulder) to make rehab start Wed.
    Tyler Skaggs (shoulder) will make his next minor league rehab start on Wednesday with Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Skaggs was originally scheduled to pitch on Tuesday, but he was pushed back a day due to rain. Nick Tropeano (elbow) appears likely to land on the disabled list, so Skaggs could replace him in the rotation as soon as next week. The Angels have a scheduled off-day on Thursday, so they can skip Tropeano's next turn this weekend. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:07 am
  • Crisp in Monday's lineup
    Coco Crisp is in Monday's lineup against the Astros.

    Advice: The Athletics plan to give Jake Smolinski more time in center field, so Crisp hasn't played since Friday. He's hitting leadoff against right-hander Mike Fiers. Danny Valencia, who is also expected to take on a reduced role, is serving as the DH on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:24 pm
  • Rangers open to trading Joey Gallo for pitching
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports the Rangers are willing to trade Joey Gallo for a long-term starting pitcher.

    Advice: The Rangers have been talking to the Rays about acquiring one of their starting pitchers and Gallo, who was previously thought to be off limits, could be part of the return package if the two sides strike a deal. Gallo is still a power-hitting behemoth but he hasn't been able to crack the Rangers' lineup with Adrian Beltre occupying third base and Shin-Shoo Choo and Nomar Mazara blocking his path at corner outfield. The 22-year-old has hit .250 this year with 16 HR and 40 RBI in 216 at-bats for Triple-A Round Rock. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:44 am

  • Report: Tigers could be in on Rich Hill
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports said the Tigers have been "calling around on starting pitching."

    Advice: Passan considers them a dark horse to land Rich Hill, who has also drawn interest from the Blue Jays, Dodgers, Marlins, Orioles, Rangers and Red Sox. Hill's trade market should expand once teams feel confident about his health. He had his last start moved back because of a blister and then lasted just five pitches Sunday against Toronto. Aside from his blister issues and a groin injury that sidelined him for all of June, Hill has had a renaissance year for the A's, contributing a stellar 2.25 ERA over 14 appearances.

  • Rich Hill leaves start with blister issue
    Rich Hill was forced to leave Sunday's start against the Blue Jays due to a recurrence of the blister on his pitching hand.

    Advice: Hill was scratched from Friday's start due to the issue and apparently he was too eager to get back. Hill threw just five pitches before departing. Consider him day-to-day, but his next start looks to be in jeopardy. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 1:39 pm
