  • Span (concussion) could return this Saturday
    Denard Span (concussion) could return from the concussion disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: Span first has to make it through rehab games on Thursday and Friday. He was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list April 12 after a collision with Braves infielder Dan Uggla. All reports so far have been good.

  • Doug Fister heads to extended spring training
    Doug Fister (lat) headed to extended spring training in Viera, Florida on Wednesday.

    Advice: Fister will begin working on a five-day throwing schedule, beginning with two simulated innings on Thursday. He'll then throw three simulated innings five days after, and a rehab assignment could follow that workout. Fister should join the Nationals around early May and will be a front-line fantasy starter once he is activated.

  • Craig Kimbrel (shoulder) says he is 'ready'
    Craig Kimbrel (shoulder) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Wednesday and declared himself "ready."

    Advice: According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, manager Fredi Gonzalez was "noncommittal" about using Kimbrel on Wednesday night because of the cold weather in Philadelphia. Kimbrel has been unavailable the past two games with mild shoulder soreness.

  • Napoli (finger) not in BOS lineup Wednesday
    Mike Napoli (finger) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday night against the White Sox.

    Advice: Napoli suffered a dislocated left ring finger Tuesday after jamming his hand against the second base bag on a head-first slide. He's expected to avoid the disabled list but may need a few more days off. Daniel Nava is starting at first base Wednesday in Chicago.

    Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Wednesday against the White Sox.

  • Miguel Gonzalez registers first win
    Miguel Gonzalez picked up his first win of the season Wednesday, tossing five scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Rays.

    Advice: Gonzalez whiffed six batters while allowing just three hits and three walks. He did need 98 pitches to get through five, which is one he was removed relatively early. Still, Gonzalez has now been solid for two outings in a row after being blasted in his first start of the season. He'll try to keep the momentum going next week in Toronto.

  • Kelley earns fourth save, Yankees beat Cubs
    Shawn Kelley collected his fourth save of the season in the Yankees' win over the Cubs in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Kelley gave up a two-out single to Anthony Rizzo in the top of the ninth inning and then Rizzo advanced to second base on fielder's indifference, but Kelley rallied back to strike out Nate Schierholtz and end the threat. Kelley remains a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues until David Robertson returns from the disabled list.

  • Tommy Hunter nails down fourth save
    Tommy Hunter notched his fourth save of the season with a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Hunter allowed a leadoff single to Desmond Jennings to start the ninth but bounce back with a groundout, a flyout and then a strikeout to end it. The Orioles closer blew a save the last time out but has pitched well overall this year, holding a 3.60 ERA and 1.00 WHIP to go along with a 5/0 K/BB ratio.

  • Logan Morrison (hamstring) lands on the DL
    Mariners placed OF/1B Logan Morrison on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 15, with a right hamstring strain.

    Advice: Morrison actually suffered the injury on Monday before he took an at-bat or went to his position. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined. LoMo was off to a .150/.227/.150 start with no homers and no RBI in eight games so far this season.

  • Adam Jones picks up a pair of hits
    Adam Jones went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Neither of Jones' hits left the infield, as he bunted for a single in the fourth and then beat out a swinging bunt in the fifth that plated a run. The outfielder had been slated to sit out Tuesday's game due to illness before it was rained out, but he wound up not having to miss a contest.

  • Folty back on track
    Astros prospect RHP Mike Foltynewicz turned in his best start of the season on Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits in five innings for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The 22-year-old made it through 3 1/3 innings in the outing for the first time this year and struck out a season-high six batters. In his three previous starts, Foltynewicz had allowed nine earned runs on 11 hits in seven innings with a 5/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The right-hander has power stuff, with a fastball that routinely touches triple digits, but his control remains a work in progress and could ultimately determine his future role in the major leagues. Foltynewicz's Tuesday start was a step in the right direction, and he's likely to debut for the Astros (in some capacity) later this season.

    Mets sent LHP John Lannan outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Lannan's move to the bullpen didn't go well, as he posted a 15.75 ERA over five relief appearances. He has the option to elect free agency rather than accept the minor league assignment. The Mets will try Daisuke Matsuzaka as a long reliever instead.

  • Heaney fires six shutout frames
    Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney was outstanding on Tuesday, allowing just a hit and walk while striking out five in six scoreless innings for Double-A Jacksonville.

    Advice: After giving up three runs on 10 hits in his season debut, Heaney, 22, has been lights out in his last two starts, allowing five total hits in 12 shutout frames with a 13/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Given Heaney's success in Double-A dating back to last season, it might not be long until he receives a promotion to the major leagues.

  • Pederson smacks two homers
    Dodgers prospect OF Joc Pederson had huge game on Tuesday, going 4-for-4 with a two home runs, a double, walk and five RBI for Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: The 21-year-old is off to a ridiculous start this season, as he's now batting .442/.564/.844 with four doubles, five home runs, four steals and a 9/12 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 12 games. Pederson is playing like he's ready for an audition in the major leagues, but he's doubtful to get the call anytime soon without an injury to one of the Dodgers' current outfielders. For that same reason, expect Pederson to be one of the top prospect trade targets this season.

  • Logan Morrison (hamstring) could be DL-bound
    Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports that Logan Morrison (hamstring) could be headed to the disabled list.

LoMo injured his right hamstring in Monday's game and according to Divish had it "heavily bandaged" Tuesday.

    Matt Harrison (back) wasn't pleased with Monday's rehab start at Double-A Frisco in which he allowed three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and three walks over 3 1/3 frames.

    Advice: The left-hander needed 77 pitches to get through the 3 1/3 innings. The good news is that Harrison didn't have a setback physically and remains on track to return around the end of the month. He'll be on a 95-pitch limit for Saturday's start in Frisco.

  • Johnson hurls 2 scoreless frames to earn win
    Jim Johnson earned the win Tuesday night against the Angels by tossing two scoreless innings of relief in the 11-inning, 10-9 win.

    Advice: Owners that have held onto Johnson should consider this evening an unmitigated success. To make it possible, Mike Trout had to crush a two-run homer off Sean Doolittle in the ninth to force extras. Once there, Johnson tossed a scoreless 10th and 11th, striking out one, walking one, and giving up a single. He's tossed five straight scoreless innings, earning the victory on consecutive nights, and has to be nearing the ninth inning discussion again.

  • Lowrie ropes two doubles in victory over LAA
    Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a walk, two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored in a win over the Angels on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Lowrie had collected only two hits over his last six starts, sandwiched around Sunday's maintenance day off, so it was nice to see him put a charge into the ball a few times. Despite the lack of hits, he's still been doing damage by drawing 14 walks, good for second in the AL. He's never been a great contact hitter, but that .244 average will rise a bit as pitchers realize that Lowrie is perfectly content to allow them to beat themselves.

  • Young collects 3 hits, 2 RBI, 2 runs in win
    Eric Young Jr. finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-0 blowout win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Young has now reached safely in 11 straight games. He provides zero power -- he's collected two doubles, one triple, and zero homers thus far -- but wreaks havoc on the basepaths when he gets on. Young is currently second in the NL with seven steals, and he's fifth in the league with 11 runs scored. Monitor his playing time closely once Chris Young returns.

  • Badenhop takes the loss as White Sox walk off
    Burke Badenhop got the loss on Tuesday as the White Sox defeated the Red Sox 2-1 on a walk-off throwing error by Xander Bogaerts.

    Advice: Badenhop wasn't sharp in the ninth inning, trying to keep a tie game intact. After allowing two singles (lead-off man Alejandro De Aza was caught stealing after his hit) and issuing another walk, Marcus Semien knocked a ball to Bogaerts, who made a low throw which couldn't be dug out by first baseman Mike Carp for the third out of the inning, allowing the White Sox to walk off as 2-1 winners. Badenhop hasn't been reliable in five appearances to start the season, allowing runs in each of his last four appearances.

    Mike Napoli has been diagnosed with a dislocated left ring finger.

    Advice: That much could be seen by looking at the gruesome picture of Napoli's finger after he slid into second base following a ninth-inning wild pitch. However, the good news is that X-rays on the finger came back negative, and the first baseman is being listed as day-to-day. Mike Carp will handle first if Napoli has to sit out a day or two.

    Mike Napoli left Tuesday's game against the White Sox after appearing to dislocate his left ring finger on a slide into second base.

    Advice: Napoli advanced to second on wild pitch, sliding in head-first but coming up with his finger pointing in the wrong direction. If it's just a dislocation, it's possible he can avoid the disabled list. If it's a fracture, a DL stint will obviously be required. Mike Carp would figure to take over at first base while Napoli is sidelined.

He took the ImPACT concussion test Tuesday and scored higher than when he took the test back in 2008. He could return to Washington on Wednesday to be examined by team doctors, at which point he could be cleared for rehab games. It's sounding like Span could be activated on Saturday when first eligible.

In fact, he's hoping to pitch Tuesday if the weather doesn't wipe out the game in Philadelphia. It's encouraging news, but fantasy owners should continue to cross their fingers.

    Advice: Obviously it's potentially worrisome anytime the shoulder is involved, but Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez isn't concerned, categorizing it as "normal soreness." Kimbrel is expected to be unavailable only for a few days. As a precaution, his fantasy owners should go ahead and pick up David Carpenter just in case. Carpenter converted the save Monday with a scoreless inning.

    Logan Morrison left Monday's game against the Rangers with a tight right hamstring.

    Advice: Morrison's turn didn't come up in the top of the first inning, but then he didn't take his position in right field in the bottom of the frame. It's possible he suffered the injury during pre-game drills but didn't alert manager Lloyd McClendon until it was too late. Consider him day-to-day for now.

    Advice: It was his first time on a mound since he was struck in the face by a comebacker in a March 19 Cactus League game. Chapman needed surgery to repair fractures around his nose and left eye, and the Reds will likely continue to bring him along slowly. A mid-to-late May activation date seems about right.

He tweaked the wrist during an opening-week game against the Brewers when he landed hard on the ground while attempting to turn a doubleplay. The Red Sox open a three-game road series with the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe hears from sources that Dustin Pedroia's wrist injury is not serious.

Chapman said Friday that throwing from flat ground has gone really well so far and he hasn't felt any symptoms since the injury occurred. He's still shooting to rejoin the Reds' bullpen in mid-to-late May.

  • Heaney bounces back in second start
    Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney dominated on Thursday for Double-A Jacksonville, allowing four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in six shutout frames.

    Advice: The 22-year-old left-hander struggled in his season debut last week, but he now owns a 2.38 ERA and 11/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 1/3 innings on the year following Thursday's outing. Heaney had an outstanding 2013 campaign, posting a 1.60 ERA and 89/26 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 95 1/3 innings between High-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville after opening the year on the disabled list. The southpaw is arguably one of Miami's five-best starters at the moment, so it's only a matter of time until he's called upon to join the rotation.
