  • Randall Delgado to start again on Monday
    Randall Delgado will make another start for the Diamondbacks on Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: The right-hander filled in against the White Sox on Wednesday, allowing just one earned run on three hits over four frames. He'll continue to occupy that spot in the rotation until Taijuan Walker is healthy enough to return. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:16 pm
  • Giants option Steven Okert down to Triple-A
    Giants optioned LHP Steven Okert to Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: The 25-year-old southpaw has struggled out of the Giants' bullpen this season, registering a 6.23 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 7/6 K/BB ratio across 13 innings of work. He'll try to get back on track in the minors. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:53 pm

  • Jose Leclerc (finger) cleared for rehab games
    Jose Leclerc (finger) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco on Sunday.

    Advice: He's expected to make two appearances before then likely rejoining the Rangers' bullpen. Leclerc posted a 2.31 ERA and 18 strikeouts through 11 2/3 innings before going down with a finger injury earlier this month. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:01 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Carter Capps (elbow) close to facing hitters
    Carter Capps (elbow) could face hitters early next week.

    Advice: It would be the first time he's done so since he was pulled from his rehab assignment in order to work on his command and mechanics. Obviously, a potential return date for Capps is completely up in the air still. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:59 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Alec Asher to start Sunday for Orioles
    Alec Asher will start for the Orioles on Sunday in Houston.

    Advice: It's unclear whether it's just a spot start or whether he's auditioning for a longer look. Asher has been terrific out of the Orioles' bullpen with a 2.17 ERA and 22/7 K/BB ratio over 29 innings. While it would take him a bit to get stretched back out, Asher has been a starter almost exclusively throughout his pro career so it shouldn't take long. It was Ubaldo Jimenez's turn Sunday, so he could be headed to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:47 pm
  • Perkins (shoulder) close to facing hitters
    Glen Perkins (shoulder) could begin facing hitters next week.

    Advice: Perkins is slated to throw two more bullpen sessions before possibly getting the green light to face hitters for the first time since last year's shoulder surgery. He's obviously still facing a long road back, but it looks like progress is being made. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:39 pm

  • Alexander (hamstring) begins rehab assignment
    Scott Alexander (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

    Advice: He shouldn't need too many appearances before being activated. Alexander has missed the last two-and-a-half weeks with a strained hamstring. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:13 pm
  • Dodgers claim Chris Heston off waivers
    Dodgers claimed RHP Chris Heston off waivers from the Mariners.

    Advice: Heston was designated for assignment after allowing 12 runs -- 11 earned -- over five innings for the M's. He'll provide depth in the minors. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:02 pm

  • Seth Lugo (elbow) moved to 60-day DL
    Mets transferred RHP Seth Lugo from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Tyler Pill. It doesn't affect Lugo's return date, as he remains on track for activation in early June. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Rafael Montero optioned to Triple-A
    Mets optioned RHP Rafael Montero to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Montero was knocked around in a spot start Thursday and has been ineffective both as a starter and reliever for the Mets. It could be a while before we see him again. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:43 pm

  • First game of DET/CWS doubleheader rained out
    The first game of Friday's doubleheader between the Tigers and White Sox has been postponed due to rain.

    Advice: The nightcap is still scheduled to be played, but they'll now try for a doubleheader on Saturday. Buck Farmer and Mike Pelfrey had been slated to start the afternoon game. Farmer will be moved to Saturday, while Pelfrey will take the ball Friday night. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:11 pm

  • Report: DET selling if sub-.500 end of June
    MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Tigers will make all veterans available via trade if they're still under .500 by the end of June.

    Advice: It's the same stance they seemingly had going into last winter before they wound up essentially just standing pat. However, the Tigers have an aging roster that seems unlikely to be in the thick of the playoff race and also the desire to cut payroll, so it's not hard to see the writing on the wall here. Morosi notes that Justin Wilson drew the most interest of any Tigers player last offseason and that interest has surely only piqued given how good he's been in the first two months. However, we could see Detroit unload several players, from impending free agent J.D. Martinez to possibly even Justin Verlander. The Tigers are currently two games under .500 and 4.5 games behind the Twins in the American League Central. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:07 am
  • Tyler Danish recalled from Triple-A
    White Sox recalled RHP Tyler Danish from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Danish will start the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers, and it's possible he'll be needed for more starts with Dylan Covey (oblique) out. The righty has put up a 3.15 ERA and 23/13 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 frames at Charlotte this season and is a poor streaming option. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:50 am

  • Juan Minaya recalled from Triple-A
    White Sox recalled RHP Juan Minaya from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Minaya holds a 1.23 ERA and 11/4 K/BB ratio over 14 2/3 relief innings at Charlotte this season. He'll be used in the middle of games. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:48 am

  • Martinez allows four runs in loss to Red Sox
    Nick Martinez allowed four runs on seven hits over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Perhaps no stat line better encapsulates Nick Martinez: not very good, but not awful, either. His 4.69 ERA through seven starts tells a similar story. At least he's reliable -- in all seven of those starts, he's gone at least five innings but no more than seven. Martinez will carry a 1-3 record into Tuesday's start against the Rays. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Montero lasts just three innings versus SD
    Rafael Montero struggled in three innings of work Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Montero also walked three while striking out four. Anyone looking at the final score might not expect that the Mets' starter was so bad -- in relief of Montero, the Mets bullpen allowed just one run over the next six innings to hold it to a 4-3 game. He's now struggled in two of three starts on the year, and Montero has failed to get out of the fourth inning in any of them. That's what an 8.24 ERA and 2.54 WHIP look like, but unfortunately for the Mets, it's not like they're flush with better options right now. Still, they can probably do better than the 26-year-old their next time out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:43 pm

  • Tyler Danish to start Game 2 on Friday
    Tyler Danish will start the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

    Advice: The first game will be started by right-hander Mike Pelfrey. Danish made three appearances for the White Sox in 2016 but this will be his first big league start. The 22-year-old carries a respectable 3.15 ERA in eight outings for Triple-A Charlotte this season, though his low strikeout rate (4.53 K/9) is a cause for concern. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:24 pm

  • Buck Farmer will start Game 1 of Friday's DH
    Buck Farmer will be called up to start the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Advice: Farmer will be the Tigers' 26th man on Friday, so he'll be one-and-done in the starting rotation. The nightcap will be started by left-hander Matt Boyd. Farmer is winless with a 9.68 ERA in eight career big league starts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:08 pm

  • Montero to start in deGrom's place Thursday
    Rafael Montero will make a spot start Thursday against the Padres.

    Advice: Montero is starting in place of Jacob deGrom, who had his start pushed back to Friday due to weather concerns. The right-hander fared poorly in his first start this year, scattering seven hits, five runs and three walks over 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on May 5. Even against a weak Padres lineup, Montero won't be a recommended streaming option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:17 pm

  • Delgado surrenders two runs over four IP
    Randall Delgado allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits over four innings in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Delgado had been working solely as a reliever prior to drawing the spot start against the White Sox in place of Taijuan Walker (blister). He pitched well enough in his stead, striking out three and walking one on the afternoon. Leury Garcia cracked a solo homer off him in the second inning and one more run came in on a double play in the fourth, but Delgado otherwise kept the White Sox at bay. He finished his outing having thrown 61 pitches (36 strikes). It remains to be seen whether he will be needed for another start before Walker returns to action. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:47 pm
  • Mariners DFA right-hander Chris Heston
    Mariners designated RHP Chris Heston for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a 40-man roster spot for outfielder Andrew Aplin, who was acquired from the Astros on Wednesday morning. Heston has allowed 12 runs -- 11 earned -- over just five innings this season at the MLB level. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:39 am

  • Jose Leclerc (finger) nearing mound work
    Jose Leclerc (finger) could be cleared to begin throwing off a mound later this week.

    Advice: He'll first have to make it through back-to-back flat-ground sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. The 23-year-old has been on the disabled list since May 8 because of tendinitis in his right index finger. Leclerc was sporting a 2.31 ERA and 18 strikeouts through 11 2/3 innings this season out of the Rangers' bullpen. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:16 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Lugo (elbow) set for second rehab start
    Seth Lugo (elbow) is set to make his second minor league rehab start on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lugo, who is coming back from a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament, allowed two hits with no strikeouts and no walks over 3 2/3 scoreless innings in his first rehab start with High-A St. Lucie last Thursday. Assuming no setbacks, he appears on track for a return in the early part of June. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:35 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Randall Delgado to make spot start Wednesday
    Randall Delgado will start Wednesday versus the White Sox.

    Advice: He's filling in for Taijuan Walker (blister). All 15 of Delgado's appearances this season have come out of the bullpen, but he's thrown three innings of four occasions, including in his previous outing last Friday. It's unclear whether the D'Backs will need him for more than one start. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:05 pm
  • Chris Heston optioned to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned RHP Chris Heston to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Heston was pummeled for seven runs over three innings in a spot start Sunday. He was also awful in a relief appearance for the M's last month. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:07 pm

  • Chris Heston blasted for seven runs by CWS
    Chris Heston was demolished to the tune of seven runs on seven hits over three innings in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Heston was making his first start of the season in this one. It was one to forget. He walked three in the first inning while surrendering RBI hits to Yolmer Sanchez, Tim Anderson, Matt Davidson and Kevan Smith. When the dust settled, Heston was down 5-0 before the M's even had a chance to bat. He would go on to allow solitary runs in the third and fourth innings before being mercifully relieved of duty. Heston figures to be dropped back down to Triple-A following this disastrous performance. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:58 pm

  • Carter Capps (elbow) moved to 60-day DL
    Padres transferred RHP Carter Capps from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Chase d'Arnaud. Capps is at extended spring training after being pulled off his rehab assignment due to command issues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:29 am

  • Chris Heston recalled from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled RHP Chris Heston from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Heston will start Sunday against the White Sox. He was rocked for five earned runs and seven hits in just two innings of relief in his only appearance with the M's this season and should be ignored for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:07 am

  • Chris Heston to start Sunday's game
    Chris Heston will be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to start Sunday's game against the White Sox, manager Scott Servais confirmed.

    Advice: Heston was punched around for five earned runs and seven hits in just two innings of relief in his only appearance during his first go-around with the Mariners back on April 25. Fantasy owners and DFS players needn't bother with Heston until he shows more consistency. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:20 am

  • Leclerc (finger) shut down after injection
    Jose Leclerc received an injection in his right middle finger.

    Advice: Leclerc hasn't shown much improvement since landing on the DL with finger tendinitis about two weeks ago. The injection will shut him down for at least a few days. Leclerc has had success in a setup role this year, earning a terrific 2.31 ERA with a 13.89 K/9 over 10 outings. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:12 pm

  • Tigers option Buck Farmer back to Triple-A
    Tigers optioned RHP Buck Farmer to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Farmer was just up as an extra bullpen arm for a couple of days and will now make the trek back down I-75 to Toledo. He'll continue to provide rotation depth until he's needed again. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:56 am

  • Randall Delgado gets three-inning save
    Randall Delgado was credited with a save after pitching three innings of one-run ball Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Delgado came into a 10-0 game in the seventh on his way to his second career save. It seems like a bit of a waste for a reliever who has been quite good of late -- he'd entered the night on a scoreless streak of 13 innings -- but someone needed to finish it up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:19 pm
  • Nick Martinez beats Tigers to earn first win
    Nick Martinez picked up his first victory of the 2017 season on Friday, limiting the Tigers to one unearned run on four hits over his five frames.

    Advice: The right-hander walked one and struck out four on the night. With this strong effort added to his resume, he now sports a more respectable 4.33 ERA and 1.25 WHIP through 35 1/3 innings on the season. He still isn't a recommended streaming option for Thursday's matchup against the Red Sox in Boston. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:22 pm
  • Perkins (shoulder) could face hitters soon
    The Twins will discuss when Glen Perkins (shoulder) can face hitters if his bullpen session Friday goes well.

    Advice: Perkins' rehab from major shoulder surgery seemed to stall earlier this month, but he's resumed throwing again. He's obviously still facing a long road back. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:23 am

  • Tigers call up Buck Farmer from AAA Toledo
    Tigers recalled RHP Buck Farmer from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: He was called up to replace Victor Martinez, who is away on paternity leave. Farmer has gone 1-2 with a 3.60 ERA in eight starts for Toledo this year. He'll be used in long relief. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:48 pm

  • Capps (elbow) throwing at extended spring
    Carter Capps (elbow) continues to throw at extended spring training.

    Advice: Capps was pulled off his minor league rehab assignment at the beginning of May after struggling with his command at Triple-A El Paso. The hop-stepping right-hander is 15 months removed from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery but is apparently still rebuilding strength. There is no timetable for his Padres debut.

  • Wilson earns a save versus Orioles on Wed.
    Justin Wilson gave up a hit and a walk in the ninth inning but held on for the save against the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was called upon to protect a one-run lead and got the job done. He made it interesting by giving up an infield single and a walk before bearing down to retire the side without allowing a run to score. It was his third save of the season. He has been rock solid with a 1.50 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 18 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:00 pm
  • Leclerc (finger) not yet throwing off mound
    Jose Leclerc (finger) has yet to begin throwing off the mound.

    Advice: Leclerc has been sidelined with a bruised right index finger since May 8. He has been playing catch, albeit only while throwing his changeup. Manager Jeff Banister addressed this, saying, "It’s not because of pain, it's more strengthening of the finger until we get him to where the strength of the finger is there and he's able to feel good about where he's throwing his fastball." It remains somewhat unclear just when the 23-year-old right-hander will be able to rejoin the team. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:31 pm
    10-Day DL
     
  • Justin Wilson takes first blown save Tuesday
    Justin Wilson took his first blown save Tuesday in the Tigers' loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Wilson struck out Seth Smith to close out the top of the eighth, but he surrendered a game-tying solo homer to Mark Trumbo in the top of the ninth and the Orioles eventually won the game in 13 innings. Wilson had been close to perfect since taking over as the Tigers' closer and he should still have a good hold on the job. Francisco Rodriguez was handed the loss Tuesday after serving up a go-ahead two-run shot to Chris Davis in the top of the 13th. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:35 pm
