  • Mariners place Evan Scribner on 10-day DL
    Mariners placed RHP Evan Scribner on the 10-day disabled list with a flexor bundle strain in his right elbow.

    Advice: The 31-year-old hurler has been a disaster in his eight appearances with the Mariners this season, compiling an 11.05 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 6/0 K/BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings. It's unclear at the moment just how long he'll be sidelined. Today, 7:45 am
    10-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Cle
  • Luis Perdomo solid in no-decision
    Luis Perdomo allowed three runs -- one earned -- over six innings against the Giants on Friday.

    Advice: Perdomo did solid work in the no-decision, finishing with five strikeouts and no walks. An Erick Aybar error led to two runs in the first. Perdomo, who missed a couple of outings with shoulder inflamation, has a 4.96 ERA in his three starts. Yesterday, 11:52 pm
  • Joakim Soria gives up four runs in loss
    Joakim Soria, who had thrown 10 scoreless innings this season, gave up four runs -- three earned -- in two-thirds of an inning to take a loss Friday against the Twins.

    Advice: Soria was about due for a bad day, but this one was extra demoralizing for the Royals, who fell to 7-15 after taking a 4-2 lead to the eight. Soria, who could be trade bait as the Royals fall out of contention, has a 2.53 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Johnson notches save vs. Brewers
    Jim Johnson pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning Friday against the Brewers for his fourth save of the season.

    Advice: Johnson threw 15 pitches in the frame and struck out a pair. It was nice to see coming off a pair of shaky appearances. The veteran right-hander is 4-for-6 in save chances to go along with a 4.66 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio in 9 2/3 innings. Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Alvarez notches save against Rangers
    Jose Alvarez pitched a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Rangers for his first career save.

    Advice: Alvarez needed only nine pitches to set the side down in order. The 27-year-old lefty owns a 2.08 ERA and 8/2 K/BB ratio through 8 2/3 innings this season. Bud Norris has reeled off four saves with Cam Bedrosian (groin) sidelined, but he got the day off after pitching in back-to-back games on Wednesday and Thursday. Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Martinez allows three runs in no-decision
    Nick Martinez allowed three runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: All of the damage was via the long ball, as Martinez gave up a solo homer to Yunel Escobar in the first inning and a two-run shot to Mike Trout in the sixth. He struck out seven and walked none in the no-decision. The 26-year-old has pitched well filling in for A.J. Griffin (gout), allowing four runs in 13 innings with a 10/1 K/BB ratio over two starts. Griffin is expected to make his return next week. Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Brach blows save against Yankees
    Brad Brach blew his first save of the season after giving up three runs in the ninth inning Friday against the Yankees.

    Advice: It was a wild one in the Bronx. After entering the bottom of the ninth with a three-run lead, Brach walked Chase Headley before giving up a single to Matt Holliday. Jacob Ellsbury grounded into a fielder’s choice to bring the first run in before Starlin Castro followed with a game-tying two-run blast. Brach came into Friday’s outing with a spotless 0.00 ERA through 11 appearances while going 5-for-5 in save chances, so there’s no reason for concern. He’ll fill in at closer for another couple of days until Zach Britton (forearm) is deemed ready. Yesterday, 8:35 pm
  • Kimbrel strikes out three for eighth save
    Craig Kimbrel struck out three batters in a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Cubs for his eighth save of the season.

    Advice: Kimbrel gave up a two-out double to Ben Zobrist to make things interesting, but he managed to strike out Addison Russell swinging to end it. It has been a dominant start to the year for Kimbrel, who has struck out 20 batters in 10 1/3 innings. Yesterday, 8:11 pm
  • Edgin notches save against Nationals
    Josh Edgin notched a save with a double-play grounder in Friday’s win over the Nationals.

    Advice: It was a gutsy call by Mets manager Terry Collins, who opted to pull Jeurys Familia with the bases loaded and one out with Bryce Harper due up. Harper hit a comebacker to Edgin, who threw home for the first out before Travis d’Arnaud threw to first base to complete the double play and end the ballgame. The Mets’ six-game losing streak is over. Yesterday, 7:51 pm
  • Edwin Diaz locks down four-out save Friday
    Edwin Diaz earned his fourth save of the season on Friday, recording the final four outs to preserve a two-run victory over the Indians.

    Advice: Diaz was called upon to face Edwin Encarnacion in the eighth inning with a runner at second base and he responded by striking him out. He then stayed in for the night, striking out a pair and getting a weak pop up. Diaz owns a 3.60 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 12/5 K/BB ratio through 10 innings on the year while converting four of his first five save chances. Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Zach Britton (arm) walks two in rehab outing
    Zach Britton (forearm) struggled in his rehab outing with Double-A Bowie on Friday, allowing one run on a hit and two walks in 2/3 of an inning.

    Advice: The O's would have loved to see Britton work a clean inning on Friday and return to the bullpen on Sunday, but perhaps they'll decide to give him another outing now before bringing him back. Britton threw 17 of his 28 pitches for strikes in Friday's appearance. Yesterday, 6:00 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am @NYY
  • Britton (forearm) activated Sunday or Tuesday
    Zach Britton (forearm) will be activated from the disabled list either Sunday or Tuesday.

    Advice: Britton will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie on Friday. Assuming everything goes off without a hitch, he'll likely be activated Sunday after the one appearance. However, if the Orioles determine that he needs another one, they'll delay his activation until Tuesday. Brad Brach has been filling in at closer. Yesterday, 2:52 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am @NYY
  • Sammy Solis (elbow) gets good news on MRI
    An MRI on Sammy Solis's left elbow revealed nerve inflammation.

    Advice: Solis was sent for an MRI after feeling tingling in his fingers when he tried to play catch a few days ago. There's no timetable for his return, but the good news is he doesn't have any ligament damage. Yesterday, 2:35 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am vs NYM
  • Matt Dermody recalled from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled LHP Matt Dermody from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Dermody was knocked around in an appearance earlier this month with the Blue Jays but will get another shot. He won't be used in high-leverage situations. Yesterday, 2:15 pm
  • Sam Dyson activated from disabled list
    Rangers activated RHP Sam Dyson from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Dyson made a couple rehab appearances and appears to be over the hand injury that he may or may not have actually had in the first place. The former closer will work in the middle innings for now. Yesterday, 1:05 pm
  • Sammy Solis (elbow) undergoes MRI
    Sammy Solis underwent an MRI on his ailing left elbow.

    Advice: Solis tried playing catch a few days ago but said he had tingling in his fingers. It's obviously not a good sign, but more will be known after the exam results are in. Solis is a key part of the Nats bullpen, so losing him for a significant period of time would be a blow. Yesterday, 12:32 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am vs NYM
  • Sean Gilmartin recalled from Triple-A
    Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Gilmartin has made one scoreless relief appearance over two separate stints with the Mets this season. The club plans to use him out of the bullpen, although it's possible he could be needed to start if Noah Syndergaard (biceps) winds up on the disabled list. Yesterday, 12:13 pm
  • Mike Morin (neck) not throwing yet
    Mike Morin (neck) has yet to resume a throwing program.

    Advice: Morin is a week removed from being placed on the disabled list with a stiff neck. He's eligible to return soon but obviously won't be ready in the next few days. Yesterday, 9:52 am
    10-Day DL
    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Cam Bedrosian (groin) yet to resume throwing
    Cam Bedrosian (groin) has yet to begin a throwing program.

    Advice: Bedrosian has been on the disabled list for nearly a week with a strained right groin but remains shut down. He's eligible to return from the DL next Tuesday, but it doesn't sound like that's going to happen. Bud Norris has been capably filling the Angels' closer role with Bedrosian out. Yesterday, 9:51 am
    10-Day DL
    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Andrew Bailey (shoulder) nearing mound work
    Andrew Bailey (shoulder) will resume throwing off a mound in the middle or end of next week.

    Advice: Bailey has already been long-tossing. Working his way back from right shoulder inflammation, Bailey should rejoin the Angels' bullpen sometime next month. Yesterday, 9:48 am
    10-Day DL
    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Robbie Ross optioned to Triple-A
    Red Sox optioned LHP Robbie Ross to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Ross holds a 4.15 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over four relief appearances this season. Ben Taylor is taking his spot in the bullpen. Yesterday, 9:26 am
    Not Active
    1:05 pm vs ChC
  • Xavier Cedeno (forearm) doesn't need surgery
    Xavier Cedeno (forearm) will not require surgery after receiving a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.

    Advice: He's been given a PRP injection and will be shut down for the next month. Cedeno will have a chance to return to the Rays sometime in the second half. Yesterday, 8:52 am
    10-Day DL
    10:07 am @Tor
  • Capps (elbow) struggles again in rehab game
    Carter Capps (elbow) allowed five runs on three hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning in his last rehab appearance with Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.

    Advice: Capps has been hit-or-miss on his rehab assignment to say the least, tossing five no-hit innings over five appearances but allowing a whopping nine runs over his other two games. It's not terribly surprising, as command can waver for a guy making his way back from Tommy John surgery. Capps should be activated pretty soon, but his inconsistency combined with Brandon Maurer's nice start should make fantasy owners pump the brakes on Capps taking over the Padres' closer job anytime soon. Yesterday, 8:12 am
    10-Day DL
    6:05 pm @SF
  • Cards being cautious with Trevor Rosenthal
    Trevor Rosenthal wasn't available to pitch Tuesday due to some general arm soreness.

    Advice: The Cardinals have avoided using Rosenthal on back-to-back days so far after he suffered a lat strain and subsequently aggravated the injury twice this spring. It wasn't the lat that kept him out Tuesday, but regardless the club is going to continue being careful with his workload. Rosenthal returned to pitch Thursday and was electric, striking out two in a scoreless frame. He has a 13/0 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 relief innings this season. Yesterday, 6:33 am
  • Tyler Lyons could make spot start Monday
    Tyler Lyons could make a spot start for the Cardinals on Monday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: The Cardinals will need a starter after a rainout Wednesday forced a doubleheader Thursday. There's more rain in the forecast this weekend in St. Louis, so another postponement could eliminate the need for Lyons on Monday. If that doesn't happen, though, Lyons is in line to face the Brewers. The lefty allowed one run over two innings Thursday in his first appearance since being activated from the disabled list. Lyons threw 73 pitches in his final rehab appearance, so he should be able to handle a decent-sized workload Monday. Yesterday, 6:25 am
    PPD vs Cin
  • Buddy Boshers recalled from Triple-A
    Twins recalled LHP Buddy Boshers from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Boshers tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings in his only outing for the Twins this year. He'll likely be sent back down after Hector Santiago returns from the bereavement list. Yesterday, 6:10 am
  • Norris continues to confound with fourth save
    Bud Norris pitched a scoreless ninth inning Thursday to close out a 2-1 win over the Athletics.

    Advice: Norris issued a one-out walk to Yonder Alonso but pitched around any further damage, finishing off the A's without incident. He's now a perfect 4-for-4 in save opportunities since taking over for the injured Cam Bedrosian, and the 32-year-old has a legit 2.84 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 15/5 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings. Bedrosian was similarly dominant before hitting the shelf, but Norris may actually be forcing his way into manager Mike Scioscia's plans at closer and is worth an add in mixed leagues to find out. Thursday, 9:48 pm

    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Rosenthal tosses scoreless ninth to earn save
    Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save in Thursday's nightcap win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: With closer Seung Hwan Oh having pitched in the afternoon contest, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny called on Rosenthal to protect the two-run lead in the night game. Rosenthal responded, striking out two while needing just 13 pitches to get the job done. Healthy after a lat injury to start the year, the 26-year-old has a 2.84 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 13/0 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 innings and seems to have the inside track on the closer gig should Oh vacate it at any point. Thursday, 8:48 pm
  • Buddy Boshers joining Twins on Friday
    Buddy Boshers will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

    Advice: He'll take the roster spot vacated by Hector Santiago, who will be away from the team while he attends his grandmother's funeral. Under normal circumstances the Twins would have to keep Boshers in the minors for at least 10 days (he was optioned to Rochester after Sunday's game), but that rule is being waived because Santiago is going on the bereavement list. Boshers tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings in his only outing for the Twins this year. Thursday, 4:29 pm
  • Jim Johnson gives up two runs to Mets
    After entering the ninth with a four-run lead, Jim Johnson gave up two runs before finishing off the Mets on Thursday.

    Advice: Johnson had a strong spring and a fine first couple of weeks, but he's given up four runs and seven hits over his last two appearances. It probably hasn't helped that today was just his second appearance in 10 days. His closing gig is safe, but it'd be nice to see him bounce back next time out. Thursday, 1:31 pm
  • Bud Norris records third save
    Bud Norris pitched a perfect ninth against the A's for his third save Wednesday.

    Advice: Norris got two strikeouts, both looking, in protecting the three-run lead tonight. He's 3-for-3 in saves since Cam Bedrosian went down. Wednesday, 11:32 pm
    Player Note
    Bud Norris LAA - SP,RP
    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Sam Dyson (hand) to return on Friday
    Sam Dyson (hand) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: Dyson declared himself ready after appearing in back-to-back games for Triple-A Round Rock on Monday and Tuesday. "I think it was pretty positive," said Dyson. "Yeah, I’m definitely ready to come back up here and contribute." Dyson was placed on the disabled list with a bruised hand, but we suspect the Rangers just wanted to give the right-hander a break after blowing three straight saves to begin the year. He'll return to a setup role ahead of new closer Matt Bush. Wednesday, 4:52 pm
  • Britton headed to Double-A Bowie on Friday
    Zach Britton is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Friday.

    Advice: That's assuming Britton comes out of Wednesday's side session without issue. The Orioles have been taking their time with Britton, who has spent the last two weeks nursing a strained forearm. Interim closer Brad Brach has yet to allow a run in 10 outings this year, so the Orioles are in good hands either way. Wednesday, 2:44 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am @NYY
  • Mets option Sean Gilmartin to AAA
    Mets optioned LHP Sean Gilmartin to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Gilmartin has made just one appearance this season at the major league level despite receiving two separate callups. Matt Reynolds is replacing him on the Mets' active roster Wednesday. Wednesday, 12:00 pm
  • Dyson (hand) makes second rehab app.
    Sam Dyson (hand) allowed one run on two hits in a one-inning rehab appearance Tuesday with Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: That's obviously not a promising note, but Dyson needed only 10 pitches to ultimately get three outs and he pitched a scoreless inning in his rehab debut with Triple-A Round Rock on Monday. The right-hander is eligible to be activated from the disabled list Thursday, and he now has back-to-back rehab appearances under his belt. It should be time. Tuesday, 7:59 pm
  • Britton (forearm) on target for Friday rehab
    Zach Britton (forearm) is scheduled to make a minor league rehab appearance on Friday.

    Advice: That assumes he makes it through a full bullpen session Wednesday without issue. There's talk of Britton returning to the Orioles on Sunday, but the 29-year-old closer still has some big hurdles to clear. Brad Brach and Darren O'Day have been handling ninth-inning duties for Baltimore while Britton nurses a forearm strain. Tuesday, 1:38 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am @NYY
  • Bud Norris notches second save
    Bud Norris recorded his second save Monday in the Angels' 2-1 win over the Jays.

    Advice: Norris gave up a single and a walk to start the inning, but he was able to strike out Chris Coghlan and induce a double-play ball from Devon Travis to end the game. Expect him to keep getting save chances until Cam Bedrosian returns. Monday, 10:45 pm
    Player Note
    Bud Norris LAA - SP,RP
    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Brach earns fourth save Monday versus Rays
    Brad Brach nailed down his fourth save Monday in the Orioles' 6-3 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Brach worked a scoreless ninth inning with a walk and a strikeout after a short rain delay at Camden Yards. He has yet to allow a run in 2017, with a 0.50 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 10 innings. The 31-year-old right-hander looks like the clear frontrunner for save opportunities in Baltimore with Zach Britton (forearm) sidelined, though Darren O'Day is also in the mix. Monday, 8:01 pm
  • Cedeno (forearm) getting second opinion
    Xavier Cedeno will get a second opinion on his ailing left forearm this week from Dr. James Andrews.

    Advice: Cedeno, who was placed on the disabled list last Friday, has already seen Rays team doctor Koco Eaton. The results of that visit aren't known, but it's usually not a good sign when Dr. Andrews is involved. An update on Cedeno should be available later this week. Monday, 3:21 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:07 am @Tor
  • Britton (forearm) to throw 'pen session Wed.
    Zach Britton (forearm) will throw a full bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: That's assuming he feels fine Tuesday following Monday's flat-ground session. The Orioles are saying Britton will be re-evaluated after Wednesday's bullpen session but they didn't indicate whether a short rehab assignment might be the next step or if he might just be activated. We'll know more in a few days. Monday, 1:48 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am @NYY
  • Zach Britton (forearm) resumes throwing Mon.
    Zach Britton (forearm) played catch from 90 feet and threw some pitches off flat ground on Monday.

    Advice: It was his first time throwing since an MRI on Friday ruled out structural damage. He said his arm felt good Monday, but more should be known about the next step after he talks to Buck Showalter and visits with a hand specialist. Brad Brach has been filling in at closer. Monday, 12:40 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am @NYY
  • M's looking to get Diaz more work
    Mariners manager Scott Servais is mulling over using Edwin Diaz in high-leverage situations earlier in games in order to get him more regular work.

    Advice: With the Mariners off to a disappointing start, Diaz has only made six appearances this season and just one since April 16. The hard-throwing 23-year-old hasn't been particularly sharp, which Servias believes is because of a lack of consistent work. "He needs to pitch," said Servais. "I don’t just want to stick him down there and wait because he’s the closer. He is so young. It may depend on where we are in the game. He hasn’t pitched much lately at all." It's a smart idea to use him outside of the constraints of the closer role if the situation warrants, though fantasy owners could miss on a save chance or two if he follows through with his idea. Monday, 11:21 am
  • Perdomo surrenders three runs against Marlins
    Luis Perdomo allowed three runs on four hits over five-plus innings in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Perdomo had not seen the mound since he was forced out of his regular-season debut due to shoulder inflammation. In his return on Sunday, the 23-year-old right-hander struck out five and walked three. He kept the Marlins off the scoreboard completely through the first five innings, but was unable to record an out in the sixth in what eventually developed into a six-run frame for Miami. Perdomo will try to truly get into the swing of things in a road start against the Giants next time he takes to the mound. In 35 appearances (20 starts) last season, he pitched to a 5.71 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 105/46 K/BB ratio over 146 2/3 innings. Sunday, 5:36 pm
  • Twins option Buddy Boshers back to Triple-A
    Twins optioned LHP Buddy Boshers to Triple-A Rochester

    Advice: The 28-year-old pitched well against the Tigers on Sunday, hurling 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief, but because of that he wouldn't be available the next few days. The Twins won't announce a corresponding roster move until Monday. Sunday, 3:16 pm
  • Kimbrel earns seventh save Sunday vs. O's
    Craig Kimbrel earned his seventh save of the season Sunday as the Red Sox beat the Orioles.

    Advice: Kimbrel was called into the game with two outs in the bottom of the ninth after Joe Kelly gave up a run on three hits and promptly induced a pop-out from Manny Machado to end it. Kimbrel has a stellar 1.93 ERA, 0.64 WHIP, and 17/2 K/BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings this season. He is 7-for-8 in save opportunities. Sunday, 2:22 pm
  • Luis Perdomo activated for Sunday start
    Padres activated RHP Luis Perdomo from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Perdomo will start Sunday versus the Marlins. He had been nursing some shoulder inflammation. Sunday, 11:07 am
  • Sam Dyson (hand) begins rehab assignment
    Sam Dyson (hand) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

    Advice: He'll make back-to-back appearances for Round Rock on Monday and Tuesday. Dyson is eligible for activation from the disabled list on Thursday, and it's looking like he'll be ready at that time. He will not, however, regain his closer job. Sunday, 9:50 am
  • Buddy Boshers recalled from Triple-A
    Twins recalled LHP Buddy Boshers from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Boshers had a nice 37/7 K/BB ratio over 36 relief innings for the Twins last season. He'll be used as a lefty specialist. Sunday, 6:14 am
  • Bud Norris nails down first save
    Bud Norris allowed a single in a scoreless ninth inning for his first save of the season Saturday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Norris needed just six pitches in the tidy effort, throwing five for strikes, filling in rather admirably for the injured Cam Bedrosian (groin). If Norris continues to serve in the closer's role with Bedrosian on the shelf he would have some nice short-term fantasy appeal in AL-only play. Saturday, 11:51 pm
    Player Note

    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Martinez holds Royals to one run over seven
    Nick Martinez limited the Royals to one run over seven innings but settled for a no-decision Saturday.

    Advice: Martinez, making his first start of 2017, kept the Royals offense in check for most of the night, giving up just four hits -- all singles -- and walking one over his seven innings. The 26-year-old got the start in place of A.J. Griffin, and his performance guarantees he'll get another. That start will likely come next weekend against the Angels. Saturday, 9:05 pm
  • Cam Bedrosian (groin) lands on 10-day DL
    Angels placed RHP Cam Bedrosian on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain.

    Advice: We're not sure when Bedrosian got hurt, but it must have happened in Friday night's loss to Toronto. With Huston Street (shoulder), Andrew Bailey (shoulder) and Bedrosian on the DL, the Angels are now without their three best relievers. If you're looking for a speculative add, right-hander Blake Parker might be your best option. Either way, this is not a situation fantasy owners should be targeting. Saturday, 5:59 pm
    10-Day DL
    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Britton (forearm) pleased with MRI results
    Zach Britton (forearm) said he was happy with his MRI results from Friday.

    Advice: The MRI ruled out any structural damage. Britton wants to begin throwing again but he won't be cleared until he meets with a hand specialist on Monday. Interim closer Brad Brach has yet to allow a run this year, so the Orioles can afford to take their time with Britton. Saturday, 1:27 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:05 am @NYY
  • Cam Bedrosian takes blown save
    Cam Bedrosian was charged with a blown save after giving up a hit to one of the three batters he faced in the eighth inning Friday.

    Advice: Bedrosian entered a 4-3 game with two on and one out in the eighth and promptly surrendered a two-run double before retiring back-to-back batters to end the inning. The Angels went on to score in the bottom of the eighth, but Bedrosian didn't come back out in a tie game in the ninth. This is one blown save that probably won't be held against him by manager Mike Scioscia. Saturday, 12:57 am
    10-Day DL
    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Nick Martinez to start for Rangers Saturday
    Rangers recalled RHP Nick Martinez from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: He'll start for the Rangers on Saturday against the Royals in place of the injured A.J. Griffin. The 26-year-old right-hander posted a 5.59 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 38 2/3 innings for the Rangers in 2016. He should not be considered as a streaming option. Friday, 8:10 pm
  • Rays place Xavier Cedeno on 10-day DL
    Rays placed LHP Xavier Cedeno on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 18, with left forearm tightness.

    Advice: Cedeno has been an important cog in the Rays bullpen the past few seasons and any amount of time that he misses will be a blow to them. He sports a 3.86 ERA and gruesome 3.42 WHIP through 2 1/3 innings of work this season. Friday, 7:56 pm
    10-Day DL
    10:07 am @Tor
  • Brad Brach saves his third consecutive game
    Brad Brach worked a perfect ninth inning on Friday, protecting a two-run lead against the Red Sox to earn a save in his third consecutive game.

    Advice: Brach has been outstanding to begin the 2017 season, firing nine scoreless innings with a 12/3 K/BB ratio. The O's haven't missed a beat since closer Zach Britton went down with his injury, making Brach a very attractive commodity in fantasy leagues. Friday, 7:45 pm
  • Angels place Mike Morin (neck) on 10-day DL
    ANgels place RHP Mike Morin on the 10-day disabled list with neck stiffness.

    Advice: There had been speculation that Morin would get sent down to Triple-A to make room for Alex Meyer who is starting against the Jays on Friday, but he'll go to the DL instead. The neck issue isn't believed to be serious and he should be able to return after a minimum stint on the disabled list. Friday, 4:08 pm
    10-Day DL
    4:15 pm @Tex
  • Sean Gilmartin recalled from Triple-A
    Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Gilmartin was sent down Thursday, but he's returned with the Mets making a couple disabled list moves. He'll expected to work in long relief, although it's possible he'll have to make a spot start Saturday if Jacob deGrom (neck) isn't ready. Friday, 1:08 pm
  • Brach stays spotless, earns second save
    Brad Brach struck out one in a scoreless 10th inning Thursday against the Reds to earn his second save.

    Advice: With Zach Britton on the disabled list, Brach has taken over as the Orioles' de facto closer in recent days. And why not, as the 31-year-old has yet to allow a run in eight innings, striking out 12 with a 0.50 WHIP. He should be owned in mixed leagues while Britton is out, and with Britton's return up in the air, he could be a nice find for some owners who get in early on the right-hander. Thursday, 7:12 pm
  • Mike Morin could be sent down on Friday
    The Angels are expected to option a reliever to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

    Advice: The Angels need to clear a roster spot for Alex Meyer, who is making a spot start against the Blue Jays. Jose Alvarez and Mike Morin are the only relievers with minor league options, so one of those two will likely be sent down. We're guessing it will be Morin, who carries a dreadful 8.10 ERA over four outings this year. Thursday, 7:11 pm

  • Luis Perdomo to start Sunday against Marlins
    Luis Perdomo (shoulder) will start Sunday against the Marlins.

    Advice: The Padres will wait until Sunday to activated him from the disabled list. Perdomo left his season debut with shoulder inflammation but looked sharp during Wednesday's 50-pitch bullpen session. His return will bump Jarred Cosart from the starting rotation. Thursday, 4:53 pm
  • Mets option Sean Gilmartin to Las Vegas
    Mets optioned LHP Sean Gilmartin to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: The Mets made a flurry of roster moves Thursday to account for Travis d’Arnaud’s wrist injury and Jeurys Familia’s return from suspension. Gilmartin appeared in just one game before being sent down. Expect the left-hander to continue shuttling back and forth between Vegas and Queens. Thursday, 1:59 pm
  • Craig Kimbrel blows save, gets win
    Craig Kimbrel gave up a leadoff homer to blow a save Thursday, but he ended up with a win after pitching two scoreless innings against Toronto.

    Advice: Kimbrel caught a bad break right off the bat, when his first curve to Kendrys Morales wasn't called a strike despite catching plenty of the plate. He grooved the next pitch, a fastball, and Morales hit it out to center, tying the game at 1-1. Kimbrel was dominant after that, striking out five of the remaining six batters he faced. He looks much sharper than he did during the latter portion of last season. Thursday, 12:58 pm
  • Cardinals activate left-hander Tyler Lyons
    Cardinals activated LHP Tyler Lyons from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Lyons will join the Cardinals' bullpen as a long reliever on Thursday after posting a 1.29 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and 14/2 K/BB ratio in 14 innings (three starts) with Triple-A Memphis. He appears to be fully recovered from offseason knee surgery. Thursday, 12:32 pm

  • Brach snares first save of the season Wed.
    Brad Brach struck out one batter in a clean ninth inning to earn a save against the Reds on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his first save since regular Orioles' closer Zach Britton went on the disabled list. Brach has been dominant this year, striking out 11 batters without giving up a run through seven innings. He is capable of generating strong fantasy value as long as he remains in the ninth-inning role. He struck out more than a batter per inning with sub-3.00 ERAs in each of the last two seasons. Manager Buck Showalter stated Brach will share save opportunities with Darren O'Day but fantasy owners should expect Brach to get most of the chances simply because he is the better pitcher. Wednesday, 7:04 pm
  • Perdomo (shoulder) throws 50-pitch bullpen
    Luis Perdomo (shoulder) threw a 50-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday.

    Advice: Padres manager Andy Green said that so long as Perdomo checks out fine following his bullpen work, the team is leaning toward starting him in place of the injured Jarred Cosart (hamstring) on Sunday against the Marlins. The 23-year-old right-hander is making his way back from posterior inflammation in his right shoulder after hitting the 10-day disabled list on April 11. Wednesday, 5:34 pm
  • Sammy Solis (elbow) heading to 10-day DL
    Nationals placed LHP Sammy Solis on the 10-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation.

    Advice: Just when Solis might be healthy enough to return to action is not yet known. The 28-year-old southpaw struggled prior to going down injured, surrendering four runs on four hits over 4 1/3 innings. He walked three in that space. Wednesday, 4:03 pm
    10-Day DL

  • Zach Britton (forearm) to undergo Friday MRI
    Zach Britton (forearm) will undergo a followup MRI on Friday.

    Advice: Britton said on Tuesday that his left forearm strain is beginning to feel better, but Friday's MRI should help shed light on the exact nature of his injury and should help to give a better idea of when the All-Star closer will be able to return to action. He will first be eligible to return from the 10-day disabled list on April 25. The Orioles are hoping that he will be able to hit that date, or close to it. In the meantime, Brad Brach and Darren O'Day figure to continue to see the bulk of save chances. Wednesday, 2:49 pm
    10-Day DL

  • Rosenthal earns save Wednesday for Cards
    Trevor Rosenthal earned his first save of the season Wednesday afternoon against the Pirates.

    Advice: Seung Hwan Oh was used Monday and Tuesday and has not been sharp through the early part of this season, so Rosenthal got the call in the ninth inning Wednesday to finish up a three-game sweep of Pittsburgh. Rosenthal hit 101 mph and struck out two in his scoreless frame, though he did allow a single to John Jaso and needed a total of 23 pitches. We wouldn't expect Cardinals manager Mike Matheny to make a change at closer quite yet, but Rosenthal makes for a smart stash. Wednesday, 1:29 pm
  • Cam Bedrosian gets two-inning save
    Cam Bedrosian got a two-inning save Tuesday in the 5-2 game against the Astros.

    Advice: Bedrosian had pitched one-third of an inning in a week, so it seemed like the plan early on was to go to him for two innings tonight. He's pitched six scoreless innings and struck out eight so far this year. Huston Street won't be back until at least June, so Bedrosian will have plenty of time to establish himself. Tuesday, 10:24 pm
    10-Day DL

  • Carter Capps throws scoreless inning at AAA
    Carter Capps (elbow) struck out a batter in a scoreless inning Tuesday night with Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: A huge improvement over his last rehab outing on Sunday, when he was charged with four earned runs while recording only two outs. Capps could be nearing a return to the Padres and might be able to work his way into save opportunities quickly if he comes out of the gate pitching like he did Tuesday at Triple-A. The hop-stepping right-hander underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last March. Tuesday, 9:36 pm
    10-Day DL
