Pirates | Jeff Locke could stick in rotation

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke, who allowed four runs and six hits while walking four and striking out three in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Atlanta Braves Thursday, April 18, could stick around in the rotation even after SPs Jeff Karstens (shoulder) and Francisco Liriano (arm) return from their injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Locke will have to pitch better than his effort last night to convince Clint Hurdle to keep him in the rotation. In Locke's defense, he was facing a red-hot Atlanta Braves squad. Only consider Locke in NL-only leagues, especially since he may be without a job in a few weeks.
