Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Giants | Brian Wilson placed on DL

The San Francisco Giants have placed RP Brian Wilson (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. In a corresponding move, the team recalled RP Steve Edlefsen from Triple-A Fresno.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson won't be eligible to return until Aug. 31. Until then, the Giants will probably play matchups among Jeremy Affeldt, Santiago Casilla and Guillermo Mota, maybe with Javier Lopez in lefty-heavy situations. Side with Affeldt first if you're chasing, with Casilla, Mota and Lopez following in that order. Of course, the possible short window and likely random organization of non-Wilson saves would make this a frustrating fantasy endeavor.
