  • Diaz (arm) doesn't expect to be out long
    Jumbo Diaz (arm) said Thursday that he doesn't expect to be out long.

    Advice: Diaz landed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday morning with right arm fatigue. He's having trouble working effectively on back-to-back days and holds a rough 5.49 ERA in 19 2/3 innings for the year. The big right-hander will probably go out on a short minor league rehab assignment before returning to the Tampa Bay bullpen in early June. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago

  • Bedrosian (groin) ready to face live hitters
    Cam Bedrosian (groin) is set to begin facing live hitters in the next day or two.

    Advice: Bedrosian is working out at the Angels' spring training complex in Arizona and could head out on a minor league rehab assignment next week if everything continues to go smoothly. Bud Norris has done a surprisingly great job as the Angels' fill-in closer and Huston Street (shoulder) is due back from the disabled list soon, so Bedrosian might return to a seventh- or eighth-inning setup job. At least initially. He's been out since April 22 with a right groin strain. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:55 am

  • Phillies activate Jeanmar Gomez from DL
    Phillies activated RHP Jeanmar Gomez from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Gomez missed around three weeks with a right elbow impingement. The Phillies' Opening Day closer owns a brutal 7.94 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in 11 1/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:50 am
  • Angels option Brooks Pounders to AAA
    Angels optioned RHP Brooks Pounders to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Pounders was only up in the majors for a day and worked a scoreless inning of relief in Wednesday's loss to the Rays. Thursday's starter Daniel Wright will take over the vacant 25-man roster spot. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:40 am

  • Boxberger (lat, forearm) set for live BP
    Brad Boxberger (lat, forearm) is scheduled to throw live batting practice next Monday and Thursday at the Rays' spring training complex.

    Advice: Wilson Ramos (knee) will catch with Brad Miller (abdomen) and Matt Duffy (heel) taking live swings. Boxberger has been on the disabled list all season because of a lat issue and a strained flexor tendon in his right forearm, but it sounds like the setup man could be ready to rock sometime in early-to-mid June.

  • Rays activate Tommy Hunter (calf) from DL
    Rays activated RHP Tommy Hunter from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Hunter will be available out of the Rays' bullpen for Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Angels after missing a full month with a right calf strain. The right-hander had a 1.08 ERA over his first 10 relief appearances this season for Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:48 am
  • Rays place Jumbo Diaz on 10-day DL
    Rays placed RHP Jumbo Diaz on the 10-day disabled list with right arm fatigue.

    Advice: Diaz has struggled to a 5.49 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 17/12 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings this season out of the Rays' bullpen. The big right-hander could be shelved for a while. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:46 am

  • Braves DFA right-hander Josh Collmenter
    Braves designated RHP Josh Collmenter for assignment.

    Advice: Collmenter allowed seven runs on six hits, including three homers, in the 10th inning of Wednesday night's loss to the Pirates. That historically bad outing ballooned his season ERA from 5.63 to 9.00. Matt Wisler is taking his spot in the Braves' bullpen Thursday. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:38 am

  • Bastardo (quad) nearing rehab assignment
    Antonio Bastardo (quad) is nearing a minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Bastardo threw an inning in an extended spring training game Tuesday and will do the same thing on Thursday before reporting to one of the Pirates' minor league affiliates over the weekend. The lefty reliever has been on the disabled list since April 25 because of a left quad strain. Assuming all goes well, he should be ready to return to the Pittsburgh bullpen the first week of June.

  • Lindblom (side) threw bullpen session Wed.
    Josh Lindblom (side) threw a successful bullpen session on Wednesday afternoon.

    Advice: It sounds like Lindblom will be ready for activation from the 10-day disabled list when first eligible next Tuesday, but he might be sent back to Triple-A Indianapolis soon after. The 29-year-old right-hander has posted a 7.84 ERA and 2.03 WHIP in 10 1/3 innings this season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:10 am

  • Bonilla yields three runs in five innings Wed
    Lisalverto Bonilla gave up three runs in five innings during his start versus the Indians on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was in line to take a loss until the Reds came back and won in the ninth inning. He gave up six hits and three walks while striking out two. Two of the runs he allowed came on a Carlos Santana bomb in the third inning. Bonilla has a 6.17 ERA in 23 1/3 innings. The Reds' rotation is wide open due to injuries and poor performances but Bonilla will need to make some improvements if he wants to stick around. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • Bauer allows two runs in 5 1/3 innings Wed.
    Trevor Bauer took a no-decision after allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings against the Reds on Wednesday.

    Advice: He left the game with a lead but the bullpen blew it in the ninth inning. The two runs Bauer allowed came on a two-run blast by Adam Duvall. He gave up four hits and two walks while punching out six. This was one of Bauer's best outings of the season and lowers his ERA to 6.30 through nine starts. His nice 59/18 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 50 innings indicates better things could be in store as the season unfolds. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Hand survives stressful ninth for save Wed.
    Brad Hand escaped a bases-loaded situation in the ninth inning to earn a save versus the Mets on Wednesday.

    Advice: After closer Brandon Maurer pitched a clean eighth inning, Hand was brought in to protect a one-run lead in the ninth. He promptly surrendered a single, a walk and another single to load the bases with nobody out. He was able to punch out the next two batters before getting Juan Lagares to fly out to end the game and notch his first save of the season. It is possible this game indicates the Padres have promoted Hand into the closer role to replace Maurer. Today's results were a mixed bag for Hand. He was able to close out the game without allowing a run but pushed everything to the breaking point in the process. Hand has a 1.73 ERA with 35 strikeouts in 26 innings compared to Maurer's 6.50 ERA. Much of that disparity is explained by Maurer's .400 BABIP compared to Hand's .222 BABIP.

  • Trevor Williams gives up three runs to Braves
    Trevor Williams pitched five-plus innings and yielded three runs Wednesday against the Braves.

    Advice: All three runs came in the sixth after Williams gave up three straight singles to open the frame and was pulled. The Pirates seem pretty content with mediocrity lately, so Williams, who has given up 13 earned runs over 18 2/3 innings in his four starts, will probably get additional opportunities. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Jose Ramirez blows save for Braves
    Given a save chance with Jim Johnson needing the day off, Jose Ramirez gave up two runs in the ninth to blow a save Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Both Johnson and Arodys Vizcaino had worked the last two days and four of the previous five days, so Ramirez got the call. An overturned call gave the Pirates an infield single to open the inning, and they got another single, a walk and a two-run single afterwards to tie the game. Ramirez probably won't get any additional save chances in the near future. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Josh Collmenter gives up seven runs in 10th
    Josh Collmenter was blasted for seven runs in the 10th to take a loss Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: The Braves decided not to further tax their bullpen tonight, so Collmenter was left in to finish the inning after giving up three homers. He had a 2.00 ERA in nine innings during April, but he's given up 15 earned runs in eight innings since. He's probably in danger of being DFA'd. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm

  • Rays recall Ryan Garton from AAA Durham
    Rays recalled RHP Ryan Garton from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Garton has allowed three runs on five hits and a walk over 2 1/3 innings this season out of the Tampa Bay bullpen. He'll work in a low-leverage role. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:56 am
  • Angels recall Brooks Pounders from AAA
    Angels recalled RHP Brooks Pounders from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Pounders has allowed four earned runs in 3 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. He will work in a low-leverage relief role for Anaheim. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:15 am

  • Tommy Hunter (calf) makes rehab appearance
    Tommy Hunter (calf) allowed two runs on three hits in a one-inning rehab appearance Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Not the greatest results, but Hunter reported feeling fine and if he pitches a little better in his next rehab outing the Rays could go ahead and activate him. The right-hander had a 1.08 ERA in 10 relief appearances for Tampa Bay before straining his right calf in late April while rushing to cover first base. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:14 pm
  • Hunter (calf) to begin rehab stint Tuesday
    Tommy Hunter (calf) is slated to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Hunter should only need a couple of appearances before rejoining the Rays. The veteran reliever has been sidelined for a month due to a right calf strain. He had a 1.08 ERA over 10 appearances prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:28 am
  • Cam Bedrosian (groin) throwing off mound Mon.
    Cam Bedrosian (groin) will throw a bullpen session Monday.

    Advice: It will be the first time he's thrown off a mound since he went down with a strained right groin a month ago. Bud Norris has pitched surprisingly well in the Angels' closer role since Bedrosian went down, but the latter should eventually get his job back. He'll likely need a rehab appearance or two before returning. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:06 am
    10-Day DL
     
  • Pirates place Josh Lindblom on 10-day DL
    Pirates placed RHP Josh Lindblom on the 10-day disabled list with left side discomfort.

    Advice: The 29-year-old hurler has really struggled in his limited time with the Pirates this season, compiling a 7.84 ERA, 2.03 WHIP and 10/3 K/BB ratio across 10 1/3 innings. There's no clear timetable for his return at the moment, but it should be at some point in June. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:20 am
    10-Day DL
     
  • Bauer gives up three runs in win over Astros
    Trevor Bauer gave up three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a victory over the Astros on Friday.

    Advice: Bauer gave up five hits (including home runs to Josh Reddick and Carlos Correa) and one walk while striking out a season-high nine batters. He trailed early before the Indians pulled away in the middle innings. The club’s dominant bullpen made the lead hold up. Bauer has now allowed 10 home runs in 44 2/3 innings this season to go along with a 6.65 ERA. He can’t be trusted in mixed fantasy leagues at this time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:51 pm
  • Bonilla hit hard in loss to Rockies on Friday
    Lisalverto Bonilla was hit hard in Friday's loss to the Rockies, allowing six runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings of work.

    Advice: The right-hander walked three and struck out three on the night. The Rockies scratched out a pair of runs in the first inning then Bonilla was able to keep them off the board until an uprising in sixth. There, a three-run homer by Alexi Amarista provided the bulk of the damage. He'll carry a 6.38 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Indians in Cleveland. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:53 pm
  • Williams gives up three runs in loss
    Trevor Williams yielded three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Friday.

    Advice: The Pirates gave Williams an early lead, but he coughed it up in his final frame before being pulled. He gave up four hits and walked a pair while failing to strike out any of the 23 batters he faced. The 25-year-old has allowed 10 runs in 13 2/3 innings in three starts since joining the Pirates’ rotation. He’s not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:16 pm
