  • Hill (blister) to face hitters again Saturday
    Rich Hill (blister) will face hitters again on Saturday either in a simulated game or a rehab appearance.

    Advice: Hill got through a successful simulated game Wednesday with no issues but will face live hitters once more before the Dodgers consider activating him. What role he'll fill is up in the air, as the team is mulling over using Hill as a reliever with the thinking that it would be easier to contain his nagging blister issues that way.

  • Chris Tillman (shoulder) joins O's in NYC
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) has joined the Orioles in New York.

    Advice: The Orioles still need to decide whether Tillman will rejoin their rotation on Tuesday in Boston. Tillman struggled in his three rehab starts and was sitting in the upper-80s in Thursday's outing, so it's possible the O's will have him make another tune-up start. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:25 am

  • Jarred Cosart (hamstring) to throw off mound
    Jarred Cosart (hamstring) will throw another bullpen session this weekend.

    Advice: If it goes well, the Padres could decide to activate him. With Luis Perdomo back, Cosart seems likely to head back to the bullpen once activated. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:15 am

  • Hector Santiago goes on bereavement list
    Twins placed LHP Hector Santiago on the bereavement list.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Graveman pitches well in loss to Angels
    Kendall Graveman allowed two runs on six hits over six innings but took the loss Thursday against the Angels.

    Advice: Graveman pitched fairly well in his first start off the disabled list, but it wasn't enough to overcome a poor offensive showing from his teammates. The right-hander didn't walk a batter and struck out four in his first start since April 14. Through four starts on the year, Graveman is 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA and 1.00 WHIP and while he does few things that move the fantasy needle, he makes for a palatable last starter in deep mixed leagues. If nothing else, his next start Wednesday against the Twins could be a decent streaming opportunity. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:44 pm
  • Nolasco limits A's to one run over 5 2/3
    Ricky Nolasco held the Athletics to a lone run over 5 2/3 innings in a win Thursday.

    Advice: Nolasco gave up just three hits and walked two while striking out four in the contest. It was the third time in five outings he's fallen short of a quality start, but he's been close in two others, including Thursday. It's not anything to write home about, but a positive takeaway, at least. In total, Nolasco is 2-2 with a 4.13 ERA and 1.24 WHIP, and he'll try to improve on those numbers Wednesday at the Mariners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Weaver touched up by D'backs for five runs
    Jered Weaver allowed five runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

    Advice: Weaver gave up three homers in this one, as Chase Field and fly ball pitchers are a bad combination. He allowed six hits and walked two while striking out just one overall. The start was his worst as a member of the Padres, but the club is actually 0-5 in Weaver's five starts this year. The 34-year-old will carry a 4.71 ERA and 1.08 WHIP into Wednesday's dangerous matchup with the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Walker fans 11 over eight stellar innings
    Taijuan Walker struck out 11 while allowing two runs over eight innings in a win over the Padres on Thursday.

    Advice: Walker had everything working, turning in easily his best start as a member of the Diamondbacks. Facing the Padres helps, too. The right-hander allowed just four hits without issuing a walk, running his record to 3-1 with a 3.94 ERA through five starts overall. One bright spot is his 33/7 K/BB ratio in those 29 2/3 innings of work. Walker will face a much stiffer test Wednesday when the D'backs face the Nationals in the nation's capital. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Kluber punches out 10 in win over Astros
    Corey Kluber struck out a season-high 10 batters while allowing three runs over seven innings in the Indians' 4-3 win over the Astros on Thursday.

    Advice: Kluber got off to a rocky start, allowing three runs through the first three innings, but he settled down to keep the Astros off the board for his final four frames. The win was his third in a row, improving him to 3-1 with a 4.19 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 37/12 K/BB ratio over 34 1/3 innings. Kluber will try to run his streak to four when he faces the Tigers in Detroit on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:17 pm
  • Tillman goes five innings in last rehab start
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) scattered eight hits, six runs (four earned) and one walk over five innings in Thursday's rehab start for High-A Frederick.

    Advice: He added two strikeouts while throwing 48 of his 71 pitches for strikes. Obviously the results weren't there for Tillman, but the right-hander said his shoulder felt good and that's all the Orioles were concerned about. He's tentatively expected to return against the Red Sox Tuesday at Fenway Park. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:53 pm

  • Matt Moore strikes out eight Dodgers
    Matt Moore limited the Dodgers to one run and two hits over seven innings in a no-decision Thursday.

    Advice: This makes two good starts and three bad ones from Moore, who never has found much in the way of consistency as a major leaguer. He'll have mixed-league value in the end, but he'll probably continue to frustrate along the way. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:19 pm
  • Shelby Miller transferred to 60-day DL
    Diamondbacks transferred RHP Shelby Miller from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Miller is weighing Tommy John surgery after being diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow. The other option would be to undergo stem cell treatment, a procedure Garrett Richards went through last season when he suffered the same injury. That decision will come in the next few days. Regardless of what he chooses, Miller is a long shot to return this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:05 pm

  • Antonio Senzatela takes first loss
    Antonio Senzatela took his first loss Thursday after allowing four runs in six innings against the Nationals.

    Advice: Four runs in six innings against the Nationals in Coors Field actually seems like a pretty good showing; consider that the Nationals totaled 42 runs over their other 30 offensive innings in the series. Senzatela, now 3-1 with a 2.81 ERA, would be intriguing for fantasy purposes if he pitched anywhere else. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:51 pm
  • Shelby Miller diagnosed with torn UCL
    Shelby Miller is evaluating his options after being diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow.

    Advice: He's also dealing with a strained flexor tendon. We assumed the injury was serious when news spread of Miller sending his MRI results to Dr. James Andrews. Now Miller must decide whether to rehab his ailing elbow or undergo Tommy John surgery, which would sideline him for at least a year. The rehab route is not unprecedented—Garrett Richards and Masahiro Tanaka have both done it—but most pitchers opt for Tommy John. The injury is a devastating blow for Miller, who had been aiming for a bounce-back season after disappointing in his first year as a Diamondback. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:20 pm

  • Graveman activated for Thursday's start
    Athletics activated RHP Kendall Graveman from the 10-day disabled list.

    Advice: Matt Olson was optioned to Triple-A Nashville in the corresponding roster move. Graveman is back after missing one start with a strained shoulder. He'll be on a slightly reduced pitch count when he takes the mound Thursday against the Angels. Graveman is undefeated with a 2.00 ERA in three starts this year. Daily Slant: Kendall Graveman generated some excitement again this year when he showed increased velocity this spring. While he started the season at 94.5 mph, he’s dropped 0.4 mph in each of his subsequent starts and is throwing his sinker 90% of the time. He’s not generating a higher than average rate of ground balls with it and he generated just two swinging strikes in his last start, though was at least league average in his two previous starts. It’s tough to get excited about all sinkers, especially when a big part of DFS success revolves around strikeouts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:54 pm
  • Rich Hill (hand) may return to a bullpen role
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts suggested Thursday that Rich Hill (blister) could return as a reliever.

    Advice: Hill threw a successful simulated game Wednesday and is nearing activation from the 10-day disabled list, but the Dodgers want to keep Alex Wood in the starting rotation and they just promoted Julio Urias. Maybe a bullpen role would work better for Hill's blister management, but it's brutal news for fantasy owners who used a high draft pick on him this spring. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:13 am

  • Five shutout innings for Gutierrez
    Reds prospect Vladimir Gutierrez pitched five shutout innings for High-A Daytona on Thursday.

    Advice: It was easily the best start of Gutierrez's season, as he allowed just three hits and seven strikeouts with no walks. There's a long way to go, but when he's at his best he shows a 96 mph fastball and a true power curveball that can miss bats. If the command can be even average, he has a chance to pitch in a rotation. If not, he could be a quality relief option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:47 am

  • Yarbrough impresses
    Rays prospect Ryan Yarbrough struck out eight hitters in 6 1/3 innings for Triple-A Durham on Wednesday.

    Advice: Yarbrough allowed just two runs on six hits and two walks in his just over six innings. Acquired in the Drew Smyly deal, Yarbrough doesn't get a ton of hype, but with a strong change and a sinking fastball, his stuff is better than advertised. He also throws those pitches and an average breaking-balls for strikes, so he absolutely has the ability to pitch in the back of a rotation. Just don't expect anything more.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:32 pm
  • Santiago gives up two runs in five innings
    Hector Santiago pitched fairly well for five innings against the Rangers, allowing two runs on six hits in a game his team eventually lost.

    Advice: He pitched well enough to win and left the game with a lead, but the Twins' bullpen utterly collapsed and the Rangers won in a landslide. Santiago was unscored upon through four innings before giving up two runs in the fifth, which was his final inning of work. He issued four walks and struck out six batters, both of which led to an elevated pitch count and an early exit. His record holds at 2-1 with a 2.43 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings.

  • Report: Shelby Miller may need TJ surgery
    According to Tommy Stoke of FanRag Sports, Shelby Miller is dealing with a ligament issue in his right elbow and could need Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: That would explain why Miller is sending his MRI to Dr. James Andrews for a third opinion. Miller had been hoping for a bounce-back season after struggling to a 6.15 ERA in his first year with Arizona but obviously his elbow injury has thrown a wrench in those plans. Zack Godley was called up from Triple-A Reno to take Miller's spot in Arizona's starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:25 pm

  • Graveman on 'slightly' reduced pitch count
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Kendall Graveman will be on a "slightly" reduced pitch count when he returns from the disabled list Thursday against the Angels.

    Advice: Graveman only missed one turn through the rotation while nursing a strained shoulder. The A's are going to be cautious with him in his first start back but it won't be long until the training wheels come off. Graveman turned in a 2.00 ERA in his first three starts before getting hurt. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:27 pm
  • Rich Hill feels 100 percent after sim game
    Rich Hill (blister) threw 25-28 pitches with no bandage on his finger during a simulated game on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hill said he felt "100 percent" and is ready for "whatever they tell me to do next." That next step will come Saturday, either in the form of a minor league rehab assignment or another simulated game. Wherever he ends up pitching on Saturday, manager Dave Roberts expects him to throw 30-35 pitches. Alex Wood has been occupying Hill's spot in the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:47 pm

  • Shelby Miller sends MRI to James Andrews
    Shelby Miller (elbow) sent his MRI results to Dr. James Andrews.

    Advice: Miller has already been evaluated by team doctors as well as Dr. Neal ElAttrache, so technically he's getting a third opinion. Andrews is usually the doctor players see before getting Tommy John surgery, so obviously Miller is dealing with more than a garden variety elbow injury. Even if Miller gets good news from Andrews, we wouldn't expect to see him on a big league mound anytime soon. It's been one disaster after another for Miller since joining the Diamondbacks in 2016.

  • Santiago to be placed on bereavement leave
    Hector Santiago is expected to be placed on the bereavement list following his start Wednesday against the Rangers.

    Advice: He's leaving the team so he can attend his grandmother's funeral. The Twins will announce a corresponding move on Thursday. Santiago should be able to make his next turn in the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:22 pm

  • Graveman (shoulder) returns Thursday at LAA
    Kendall Graveman (shoulder) will return to the A's rotation Thursday in Anaheim.

    Advice: Graveman got the go-ahead after making it through a 42-pitch bullpen session on Monday without issue. The 26-year-old right-hander wound up missing just one turn and will return Thursday to a 2-0 record, 2.00 ERA, and 1.00 WHIP through three starts covering 18 innings. With the velocity spike he's shown this season, Graveman deserves to be owned in deeper mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:22 pm
  • Graveman (shoulder) threw side session Tues
    Kendall Graveman (shoulder) threw a successful 42-pitch bullpen session on Monday.

    Advice: Graveman reported no day-after discomfort on Tuesday and is on track to return to the Oakland rotation Thursday in Anaheim. The 26-year-old right-hander was sporting an excellent 2-0 record, 2.00 ERA, and 1.00 WHIP through three starts (18 innings) this season, showing improved fastball velocity. This shoulder issue will hopefully be a minor blip. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:54 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:45 pm
  • Ricky Nolasco to start on Thursday
    Ricky Nolasco will start on Thursday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Nolasco will have gone eight days in between outings, as the Angels wanted him to work on his mechanics on the side. The veteran right-hander holds a 4.76 ERA and 17/3 K/BB ratio over his first 22 2/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:10 pm
  • Shelby Miller (elbow) getting second opinion
    Shelby Miller (elbow) will receive a second opinion on his ailing right elbow from Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller went on the disabled list Monday with what the Diamondbacks are calling right elbow inflammation for now. However, manager Torey Lovullo wouldn't comment when asked if there was anything wrong with Miller's ligament, which could be an ominous sign. We should know more later this week. Archie Bradley is an option to take Miller's spot in the rotation, although the D'Backs are considering keeping him in the bullpen given his success there. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:56 pm
    60-Day DL

  • D'Backs place Shelby Miller (elbow) on DL
    Diamondbacks placed RHP Shelby Miller on the 10-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

    Advice: The injury that forced him from Sunday's start had been described as forearm tightness. That the D'Backs are saying it's merely inflammation would seem to be an encouraging sign, although they've yet to offer any more details. The club also hasn't said who will take Miller's spot in the rotation, but Archie Bradley is an obvious candidate. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:32 pm

  • Tillman (shoulder) set for next rehab start
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) is slated to throw around 75 pitches in his next rehab start Thursday for High-A Frederick.

    Advice: Tillman allowed three runs over 3 2/3 innings Saturday in his second rehab start, but he said he felt better than his first. The hope is that he could be ready to be activated on May 2 against the Red Sox, but it depends on how things go on Thursday. The veteran right-hander has been dealing with shoulder issues since the offseason. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:31 pm

  • Shelby Miller (forearm) set for MRI on Monday
    Shelby Miller (forearm) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday.

    Advice: The right-hander was lifted from Sunday's start in the fifth inning after experiencing tightness in his forearm. He admitted after the ballgame that it's the first time he's ever had an issue like this with his pitching arm and manager Torey Louvullo admitted that the team is very concerned. Expect an update on his status after the D'Backs get the results of that exam on Monday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:16 pm

  • Shelby Miller leaves with forearm tightness
    Shelby Miller was removed from Sunday's start against the Dodgers in the fifth inning due to tightness in his forearm.

    Advice: The right-hander will be re-evaluated on Monday. While there has been no announcement regarding an estimate on how long he'll be sidelined, it's likely that Miller will miss at least his next start. Look for an update from the Diamondbacks on Monday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:42 pm

  • Shelby Miller leaves with undisclosed injury
    Shelby Miller was forced to leave Sunday's start against the Dodgers due to an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: The right-hander received a visit from the team's trainer during the fifth inning where the decision was made to pull him. He had hurled four shutout innings entering the fifth before walking the first two hitters and giving up an RBI double to Corey Seager. Expect an update from the Diamondbacks on his status after the conclusion of Sunday's game. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:22 pm

  • Graveman (shoulder) on track for Thursday
    Kendall Graveman (shoulder) will throw another bullpen session Monday and is on track to start Thursday in Anaheim.

    Advice: Graveman went on the disabled list a week ago with a shoulder injury, but the move has looked precautionary from the beginning, as the righty resumed throwing a day after going on the DL. The righty has put up a 2.00 ERA in his first three starts and should be started in deeper fantasy leagues this week. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:33 am
  • Nolasco pushed back to work on mechanics
    Ricky Nolasco will have his next scheduled start pushed back a few days so that he can work on his mechanics.

    Advice: Nolasco pitched well in his last start, but evidently the Angels think he has some things to iron out. It's unclear when he'll start again, but Thursday would make sense. Jesse Chavez will start Monday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:30 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. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:51 pm
  • Jered Weaver coughs up two more homers
    Jered Weaver allowed two solo home runs with four hits and a walk over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Weaver has allowed seven homers in four starts (23 innings), including at least two long balls in three of the outings. He is eating up innings, posting three straight quality starts, but he is still only worth a look in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues because of his high homer totals and low strikeout numbers. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:15 pm
  • Matt Moore roughed up at Coors Field
    Matt Moore allowed six earned runs, nine hits and a walk with four strikeouts over four innings in a loss Saturday at Colorado.

    Advice: The southpaw is struggling out of the gate, failing to last longer than 5 2/3 innings in three of his four outings. Walks have been an issue, as he has yielded six free passes over 23 innings and he had a problem keeping the ball in the yard Saturday. He has served up five homers over his past 17 2/3 innings. As such he is only worth a look in NL-only play right now. He faces another uphill battle when the Dodgers visit on Thursday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:38 pm
  • Antonio Senzatela runs record to 3-0
    Antonio Senzatela allowed just one earned run and four hits with no walks over seven innings in a victory Saturday against the Giants.

    Advice: Senzatela also struck out three batters in the 90-pitch quality start, running his record to 3-0 while lowering his ERA to 2.08. The Venezuelan right-hander has rattled off three straight quality starts, lasting at least seven innings in each of the outings. Despite the solid showings his fantasy ceiling remains rather limited since half of his games are at Coors Field. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:28 pm
  • Dodgers thinking of using Hill as a reliever?
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said it’s possible Rich Hill (blister) could pitch out of the bullpen when he returns from the disabled list.

    Advice: Hill threw a 25-pitch bullpen session on Saturday and will likely begin a rehab assignment sometime next week. The left-hander has struggled with blister issues on and off for the better part of two seasons and using him out of the bullpen might be the best way to preserve his long-term health. If Hill does move to the pen full-time, it could open up a spot for Julio Urias in the starting rotation. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:48 pm

  • Tillman to start for Frederick on Thursday
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) will make another rehab start Thursday for High-A Frederick.

    Advice: Tillman had been slated to start for Frederick on Saturday but due to poor weather conditions, he'll instead travel to Harrisburg and make the start for Double-A Bowie. He could be ready to rejoin the Orioles rotation after Thursday's outing. He got a late start this year while battling shoulder issues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:03 pm

  • Rich Hill throws a 25-pitch bullpen session
    Rich Hill (blister) completed a 25-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: Hill had a blister pop up on his left middle finger Sunday against the Diamondbacks and landed on the disabled list a day later. He resumed throwing on Wednesday and hopes to pitch off a mound without the covering in a few days. Hill wore a band-aid on his finger during Saturday's session. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:40 pm

  • Taijuan Walker gives up four runs
    Taijuan Walker pitched 5 2/3 innings and allowed four runs in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Friday.

    Advice: Walker came up one out shy of a quality start, surrendering a double and an RBI single with two outs in the sixth. Walker has a 4.57 ERA after four starts, but his other stats are very solid; he's struck out 22, walked seven and given up two homers in 21 2/3 innings. It's just not going to be very easy for him to post a strong ERA in Arizona. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:41 pm
  • Kluber tosses three-hit shutout vs. ChiSox
    Corey Kluber tossed a three-hit shutout in Friday’s 3-0 victory over the White Sox.

    Advice: He needed 110 pitches (73 of them strikes) to compete his fourth career shutout. Kluber was flat-out dominant, striking out nine batters while issuing only two walks. All three hits were singles. Kluber lowered his ERA from 6.38 to 4.28 with the brilliant outing and fantasy owners should expect continued improvements in the outings to come. He’ll square off against the Astros next time out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:18 pm
  • Hector Santiago fans six in win over Tigers
    Hector Santiago struck out six over 6 1/3 innings of three-run ball in Friday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: The veteran southpaw allowed seven hits and one walk in the ballgame. The Tigers scored a pair in the third inning and added a solo homer in the sixth by James McCann, but that was the extent of the damage against him. Now 2-1 on the season, Santiago will carry a stellar 2.19 ERA and 0.97 WHIP Wednesday's showdown against the Rangers in Texas. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:22 pm

  • Graveman (shoulder) throws bullpen session
    Kendall Graveman (shoulder) said he felt great after throwing a successful bullpen session on Friday.

    Advice: All indications are that the right-hander will miss just one start and be able to take his regularly scheduled turn in the rotation against the Angels next week. Cesar Valdez, who filled in for him on Thursday, has already been sent back to Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:27 pm
  • Chris Tillman starting for Frederick Saturday
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) will make another rehab start Saturday for High-A Frederick.

    Advice: Tillman allowed one run in 2 2/3 innings Monday in his first rehab start for Double-A Bowie. He admitted to being rusty in that outing and will probably need at least one more start in the minors after Saturday. Tillman led Baltimore with a career-high 16 wins last season.

  • Rich Hill (blister) attempts outfield throws
    Rich Hill (blister) was throwing in the outfield on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hill was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a blister on his left middle finger on Monday. Blister issues have plagued the veteran southpaw over the past two seasons. For the time being, Alex Wood replaces him in the rotation. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said earlier this week that the team is considering shutting Hill down for an extended amount of time.

  • Padres place Jarred Cosart (hamstring) on DL
    Padres placed RHP Jarred Cosart on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

    Advice: Cosart strained his right hamstring in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks. There is no current timetable for his recovery. The Padres have yet to announce who will take Cosart's place in the rotation, but regardless of whom fills in, there is unlikely to be any true fantasy relevance. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:59 pm

  • Shelby Miller holds Padres to one run
    Shelby Miller limited the Padres to one run over 7 1/3 innings to earn a win Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller hasn't had a bad outing yet, but this rates as his first quality start. Of course, it did come against a Padres team that included four players (plus the pitcher) hitting under .200. Miller is obviously in far better form this year than last, but we're still not sure that will translate into any mixed-league value. He has a 3.50 ERA and a 17/7 K/BB ratio in 18 innings so far. He will be a streaming option next week, as he's due to face the Padres and Rockies at home. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:49 pm

  • Ricky Nolasco solid for six innings in win
    Ricky Nolasco pitched six innings and allowed two runs Tuesday in a win over the Astros.

    Advice: It's his first win in four starts. Nolasco has a 17/3 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings, but because he's given up seven homers, he's sporting a 4.76 ERA. He's strictly an AL-only pitcher. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:29 pm
  • Cosart leaves start with hamstring strain
    Jarred Cosart suffered a right hamstring strain in his start Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Cosart allowed three runs -- one earned -- over 3 2/3 innings before exiting. The right-hander is probably headed for the 10-day disabled list, and we probably won't recommend picking up his replacement in the Padres' patchwork rotation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:53 pm
