  • Casey Kelly to throw simulated game Monday
    Casey Kelly (elbow) is scheduled to throw in an extended spring training game on Monday.

    Advice: If all goes well with that outing, he'll be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment. He's working his way back from Tommy John surgery, but as long as he continues to progress, he could be looking at a return to the Padres before the All-Star break.

  • Snakes designate Rowland-Smith for assignment
    Diamondbacks designated LHP Ryan Rowland-Smith for assignment.

    Advice: The 31-year-old left-hander was moved to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Cody Ross who was activated from the disabled list. He appeared in six games this season, posting a 4.91 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 9/4 K/BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings. He could generate interest from other teams in need of bullpen depth.

  • Vidal Nuno to start on Sunday
    Vidal Nuno is expected to start on Sunday against the Rays.

    Advice: The Yankees need a spot starter following Wednesday's doubleheader, and Nuno makes the most sense. He last pitched on April 8 and got up to 67 pitches in the outing (though he allowed seven runs over 3 1/3 innings).

  • Escobar struggling in Triple-A
    Giants prospect LHP Edwin Escobar has gotten off to a slow start this season, posting an 8.53 ERA through his first 12 2/3 innings for Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: The 21-year-old has allowed a total of 22 hits over his three starts this season, and opposing hitters are raking against him at a .379 clip. However, none of those 22 hits have left the yard (which is all the more impressive considering Fresno plays in the notoriously hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League), and Escobar has still posted an impressive 17/4 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The left-hander profiles as a No. 4 or 5 starter in the major leagues and should debut with the Giants at some point this season.

  • Nick Martinez to start on Tuesday
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Friday that Nick Martinez is likely to be recalled to start on Tuesday in place of the injured Tanner Scheppers (elbow).

    Advice: Martinez held his own in his major league debut earlier this month, allowing three runs over six frames against the Rays. He could be needed for more than one start, depending on when the Rangers bring Matt Harrison (back) back from the DL.

  • Brandon Maurer will start on Sunday
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon confirmed Friday that Brandon Maurer will be recalled to start on Sunday in Miami.

    Advice: Maurer began the season in Triple-A Tacoma's bullpen but was moved into the rotation last week and boasts a 2.16 ERA with a whopping 17 strikeouts over his first 8 1/3 innings. He only went two innings in his lone start for Tacoma, so his pitch count will obviously be limited Sunday.

  • Jose Alvarez optioned to Triple-A
    Angels optioned LHP Jose Alvarez to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Alvarez was up for less than a week and was unscored upon in two-thirds of an inning. He's being replaced in the bullpen by Josh Wall.

  • Freddy Garcia set to sign with Asian club
    Chris Cotillo of reports that Freddy Garcia is close to signing with an undisclosed team in Asia.

    Advice: Garcia opted out of his minor league deal with the Braves after finding out he wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster. He was hoping to find a major league deal somewhere but had only been offered minor league deals to this point. Obviously he's apparently found a better opportunity overseas.

  • Brandon Maurer likely to start Sunday
    Brandon Maurer is the most likely candidate to start for the Mariners on Sunday in Miami.

    Advice: Taijuan Walker (shoulder) had a setback and Blake Beavan (shoulder) joined him on the disabled list, so the M's are looking for another starter. Maurer began the season in Triple-A Tacoma's bullpen but was moved into the rotation last week and boasts a 2.16 ERA with a whopping 17 strikeouts over his first 8 1/3 innings. He only went two innings in his lone start for Tacoma, so his pitch count would obviously be limited Sunday.

  • Kyle Gibson goes eight in shutout of Jays
    Kyle Gibson pitched four-hit ball for eight innings and combined with Anthony Swarzak on a shutout of the Blue Jays on Thursday.

    Advice: It's a depleted Blue Jays lineup, but that's still quite an outing for the 26-year-old. He's already 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA this year after going 2-4 with a 6.53 ERA in 10 starts as a rookie last season. While he should remain a decent enough AL-only starter, we don't expect him to last as an asset in mixed leagues.

  • Anderson undergoes surgery on index finger
    Brett Anderson underwent successful surgery Thursday on his fractured left index finger.

    Advice: Anderson had four pins inserted into the broken finger to stabilize it and allow for proper healing. The left-hander has already been placed on the disabled list and is expected to be out for the next 4-6 weeks.

  • Harrison (back) to make more rehab starts
    Matt Harrison (back) is expected to make a few more minor league rehab starts.

    Advice: Harrison was not happy with himself after allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over 3 1/3 innings Monday at Double-A Frisco. He'll pitch again for Frisco on Saturday and could make one or two more rehab starts after that. The left-hander won't be back until May.

  • Indians RHP Trevor Bauer electric in Triple-A
    Trevor Bauer tossed six shutout innings, scattering five hits and one walk while striking out nine batters on Wednesday night for Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Bauer seems to have finally taken that leap that the Indians wanted to see when they acquired him as part of the Shin-Soo Choo trade. Given that most of the rotation in Cleveland is struggling, the 23-year-old right-hander may not be in Columbus for much longer.

  • Milone allows two runs in ND against Angels
    Tommy Milone surrendered three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in Wednesday's no-decision versus the Angels.

    Advice: Milone isn't going to blow anybody away, so there are going to be starts like tonight that could go one way or the other based on a whole bevy of circumstances. This evening, walking a pair and striking out only one didn't come back to bite him in a big way because he mostly avoided hard contact (six hits; four singles and two doubles). Milone has coughed up 16 hits over his first two starts, a frequency which must come down ASAP with the Rangers coming to town on Tuesday.

  • Danny Duffy strikes out four in relief
    Danny Duffy struck out four in two scoreless innings of relief to pick up a win against the Astros on Wednesday.

    Advice: Duffy probably isn't in the bullpen for good, but he could be an asset in relief for however long the Royals leave him there. He's pitched 4 1/3 innings, striking out seven, since his callup Saturday.

  • Matt Harrison not pleased with rehab start
    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.

  • Brett Anderson (finger) lands on DL
    Rockies placed LHP Brett Anderson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 13, with a fractured left index finger.

    Advice: Anderson suffered the injury on Saturday during an at-bat. He will have surgery this week to insert some pins in the finger and is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks. Franklin Morales will go back into the rotation in Anderson's place.

    Advice: It's a tough break for the oft-injured 26-year-old who posted a 3.60 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio over 15 innings in his first three starts. Franklin Morales will replace him in the Rockies rotation.

  • Jose Alvarez recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled LHP Jose Alvarez from Triple-A Salt Lake.

  • Anderson (finger) could land on disabled list
    Brett Anderson (finger) could be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Anderson was initially diagnosed with a bruised left index finger after having to leave Saturday's game with the injury, but he's feeling worse Sunday than expected. The southpaw will undergo an X-ray Sunday and possibly an MRI Monday before the Rockies decide whether they need to make a roster move.
