Diamondbacks | Jason Kubel lets swelling subside

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Jason Kubel (quadriceps) is recovering from a strained left quadriceps, and he is in "calm-down" mode as he lets the swelling go down. "He'll just do mobility stuff and regular manual strengthening, just what's tolerable while they try to calm everything down," manager Kirk Gibson said. "The MRI showed some fluid in there, which means there's swelling. He'll try to work that out, as well, and then start ramping up at that point."

Fantasy Tip: Kubel is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list April 28, but that looks unlikely at this point. Fantasy owners will want to keep him reserved until he can officially return and prove his health. It might be early May before he is playing regularly in the majors.
