  • Bruce Rondon (biceps) could be activated Fri.
    Bruce Rondon (biceps) could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: Rondon has allowed four runs over 4 1/3 innings in his first five rehab appearances and will make a sixth appearance with Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday. The hard-throwing reliever has been out all season with right biceps tendinitis.

  • David Huff designated for assignment
    Dodgers designated LHP David Huff for assignment.

    Advice: Huff tossed a scoreless inning in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader, but now he's being sent out as the Dodgers add a fresh arm. He'll likely clear waivers.

  • Nicasio allows one run in spot start vs. Rox
    Juan Nicasio allowed one run over two innings Tuesday in the first half of a doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Advice: Los Angeles went on to lose the game 6-3. Nicasio hadn't thrown more than 38 pitches in an appearance this season, so he wasn't projected to last very long in his spot start Tuesday. The right-hander wound up throwing 41 pitches. He'll now head back to the bullpen.

  • Gausman (shoulder) set for rehab start
    Kevin Gausman (shoulder) threw a two-inning simulated game Tuesday without issue.

    Advice: The next step for Gausman will be a three-inning minor league rehab start Saturday with High-A Frederick. If all continues to go smoothly, he should be an option for the Orioles around the middle of June. Though it's not exactly clear what his role will be.

  • Mariners call up Montgomery for MLB debut
    Mariners recalled LHP Mike Montgomery from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Montgomery will make his major league debut Tuesday at home against the Yankees and could be up for an extended period if the outing goes well. The 25-year-old left-hander has lost his top-prospect status, but he's put up a decent 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio in 53 innings this season at the Triple-A level. There may be some value here for deep mixed-leaguers.

  • Kyle Ryan to start for Tigers on Friday
    Kyle Ryan will start Friday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Ryan allowed one run in three innings Wednesday in a start against the A's. The 23-year-old left-hander is not a good fantasy bet Friday night at U.S. Cellular Field.
    Today, 1:23 pm
  • Pomeranz (shoulder) to join A's bullpen
    Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) is likely to be activated from the disabled list Wednesday.

    Advice:'s Jane Lee says Pomeranz will be put in the bullpen rather than added back to the rotation. But that could change. Pomeranz wound up missing around three weeks with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder. He threw two hitless innings and struck out three Sunday at High-A Stockton in what was his only rehab appearance.

  • Dickey takes loss against Nationals
    R.A. Dickey allowed two runs over seven innings and took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Both runs scored in the fifth inning. Dickey gave up eight hits and walked one while striking out six batters, so he did fine, but Jordan Zimmermann was a little bit better. This was his first quality start since May 4. He'll bring a 5.53 ERA into a start against the Astros this weekend at home.

  • Nova (elbow) pitches in ext. spring game
    Ivan Nova (elbow) threw in another extended spring training game on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nova, who is currently working his way back from Tommy John surgery, tossed three innings before rain forced him indoors to pitch two more innings. He's likely to begin a minor league rehab assignment in High-A next week, which puts him on pace for a return around the All-Star break.

  • Rodriguez's MRI shows nothing new in elbow
    Paco Rodriguez underwent an MRI which showed no difference in his elbow from the time he was signed.

    Advice: In other words, the Dodgers didn't find anything to be alarmed about. Rodriguez was placed on the disabled list over the weekend with a left elbow strain and will be shut down for a few days before resuming a throwing program. There's no clear timetable for his return.

  • Jordan could start Wednesday
    Nationals manager Matt Williams suggested that Taylor Jordan could start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: That's assuming he isn't needed during Tuesday's doubleheader. Jordan allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in relief of Stephen Strasburg. We'd steer clear of him in mixed leagues if he gets the assignment.
    Today, 7:58 am
  • Rays designate Ernesto Frieri for assignment
    Rays designated RHP Ernesto Frieri for assignment.

    Advice: The Rays bought low on Frieri over the winter in hopes that he would show his old form, but he posted a mediocre 4.63 ERA and 19/11 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings while allowing six home runs. He has an $800,000 guarantee with Tampa Bay.

  • Nicasio to start first game of doubleheader
    Juan Nicasio will start the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Advice: Nicasio has a solid 1.29 ERA and 28/11 K/BB ratio in 21 innings this season, but he hasn't thrown more than 38 pitches in an appearance this season. In other words, look for this to be a bullpen game for the Dodgers.

  • Mejia set to return to U.S. soon
    Jenrry Mejia is slated to return to the United States in about 10 days to begin a throwing program.

    Advice: Mejia was placed on the disabled list in early April due to right elbow inflammation before being handed an 80-game PED suspension. He'll be eligible to return on July 7 and Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that they'll find a spot for him in their bullpen.

  • Colome hit around for 5 runs over 6 innings
    Alex Colome lost on Monday against the Angels after giving up five runs in six innings.

    Advice: Colome was hurt by the long ball, as all five runs came on three home runs. The first was a David Freese homer to left field. The second plated three runs via Mike Trout, and the third was a solo blast from Albert Pujols. Colome allowed nine hits in total while walking three and striking out five. Despite a 5.05 ERA, he's been more good than bad on the mound thus far, but he doesn't have any fantasy value. Colome starts next in Seattle against the Mariners.

  • Kendrick hammered by the Dodgers in a loss
    Kyle Kendrick was hit hard in a loss to the Dodgers on Monday, serving up six runs (five earned) over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Kendrick allowed 10 hits, two of which were home runs, while walking two and striking out one. Both homers came in the second inning via Andre Ethier and Jimmy Rollins. The Dodgers then put on their first five batters against Kendrick in the sixth on four hits and an error en route to a six-run frame. Kendrick and Coors Field hasn't been a good match, as expected. He has an ugly 6.55 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 32/22 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. Kendrick will face the Marlins at home in his next start.
    Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Mike Montgomery to make MLB debut Tuesday
    Mariners pitching prospect Mike Montgomery will be recalled to make his major league debut on Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: He's taking James Paxton's (finger) spot in the rotation. A former top-50 prospect, Montgomery has seen his star fade dramatically the last couple years but has had a nice season at Triple-A Tacoma, posting a 3.74 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio over 53 innings. He could stick around for a bit if he pitches well.
    Yesterday, 3:45 pm
  • David Huff called up from Triple-A
    Dodgers purchased the contract of LHP David Huff from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: He'll be available out of the bullpen Monday, but if he isn't used could start one of games during Tuesday's doubleheader. Huff allowed four runs over four innings in a spot start for the Dodgers back in April.

  • Paco Rodriguez (elbow) lands on disabled list
    Dodgers placed LHP Paco Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 30, with a left elbow strain.

    Advice: Manager Don Mattingly revealed that Rodriguez hasn't felt quite right in his last few appearances. He'll get his elbow examined before more is known about a potential timetable for his return.

  • Drew Pomeranz to make rehab start Sunday
    Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) is scheduled to make his first minor league rehab start with High-A Stockton on Sunday.

    Advice: He will work two innings in his first outing and build up from there. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to rejoin the rotation in late June
    Friday, 4:43 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Ivan Nova (elbow) nearing rehab assignment
    Ivan Nova (elbow) will make one more appearance in extended spring training next week before beginning a rehab assignment.

    Advice: The right-hander threw 63 pitches in his sixth appearance in extended spring on Thursday. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Nova will need a handful of rehab starts but should be an option for the Yankees' rotation in late June or early July.

  • Gausman (shoulder) set for starts at AAA
    Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is scheduled to make starts June 6 and June 11 at Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: That assumes he gets through his final simulated game without issue. Gausman has been on the self since early May with tendinitis in his right shoulder and it's not clear when he might return to the major leagues. It's also unclear what his role will be once he does make it back to Baltimore.

    15-Day DL
  • Kyle Kendrick solid over 7 1/3 innings
    Kyle Kendrick allowed four runs but lasted 7 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 6-4 victory over the Reds.

    Advice: Kendrick served up two homers and struck out only one, but he permitted just five hits in total and also issued just one free pass. The outing was his longest of the season in 10 trips to the mound. Kendrick will bring an ugly 6.38 ERA and 31/20 K/BB ratio over 60 2/3 innings into next week's start versus the Dodgers.
    Wednesday, 12:51 pm
  • Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) to throw off mound
    Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

    Advice: Pomeranz played catch a few days after being placed on the disabled list with a sore shoulder and is now ready for mound work, so it's safe to say the cortisone injection he received has worked. The left-hander could be ready for a rehab assignment before long.
    Wednesday, 10:53 am
    15-Day DL
  • Kyle Ryan recalled from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled LHP Kyle Ryan from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Ryan will make a spot start on Wednesday against the A's with Alfredo Simon going on the bereavement list. The left-hander holds an unappealing 4.67 ERA over nine starts at Toledo this season and can be avoided for fantasy purposes.
    Wednesday, 7:20 am
  • Ivan Nova (elbow) nearing rehab assignment
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that he expects Ivan Nova (elbow) to begin a rehab assignment "pretty soon."

    Advice: Nova is expected to throw about 70 pitches Wednesday or Thursday in an extended spring training game. His rehab assignment would figure to be pretty lengthy, so Nova is still multiple weeks away from a return. Still, the Yanks will be happy to have him as a rotation option relatively soon.

  • Colome allows two runs against Mariners
    Alex Colome gave up two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Advice: Things got off to a rocky start for Colome, as four of the first five hitters singled to produce two runs in the top of the first inning. Colome settled down to allow just one more hit and one more walk over the next 4 1/3 innings. He was unable to improve his 3-1 record but he did lower his ERA to 4.55. The right-hander will next take on the Angels on Monday.
    Tuesday, 8:32 pm
  • Dickey struggles in no-decision vs. White Sox
    R.A. Dickey allowed five runs in five innings, taking a no-decision as the Blue Jays walked off 10-9 winners on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dickey allowed two runs on a single and a sacrifice fly in the second inning, then three more in the fifth on a Jose Abreu three-run home run. He gave up eight hits overall with a pair of walks and five strikeouts. It's been three weeks since Dickey's last quality outing, as he has a terrible 5.77 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and a 35/23 K/BB ratio in 64 innings. He'll try to turn it around in his next start against the Nationals on the road.
    Tuesday, 8:05 pm
  • Rondon shoots to return middle of next week
    Bruce Rondon (biceps) is hoping to rejoin the Tigers' bullpen by the middle of next week.

    Advice: Rondon had a 1-2-3 inning Sunday in his second rehab appearance with Triple-A Toledo, hitting 98 mph a couple times on the radar gun. The goal is for him to make back-to-back appearances on Friday and Saturday and then a final appearance of more than one inning after that. If he gets through that with no issues, he'll be activated. Rondon has been out all season with right biceps tendinitis.

  • Gausman (shoulder) to throw sim. game June 2
    Kevin Gausman (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a two-inning simulated game on June 2.

    Advice: Gausman first has to make it through a bullpen session Tuesday and a live batting practice session Friday. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since early May with shoulder tendinitis. It's not exactly clear what his role will be once he's deemed ready to pitch in major league games.
    May 25, 8:37 am
    15-Day DL
  • Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) to play catch Monday
    Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) will play catch on Monday.

    Advice: It will be the first time he's thrown since he went on the disabled list with a sprained left AC joint. Pomeranz was given a cortisone injection late last week and could be looking at a relatively short stay on the disabled list.
    May 24, 8:50 am
    15-Day DL
  • Taylor Jordan recalled from Triple-A
    Nationals recalled RHP Taylor Jordan from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Jordan holds a 2.14 ERA over seven starts at Syracuse this season. He'll give the bullpen length, which will be needed with Tanner Roark transitioning from the 'pen to the rotation.
