Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Rays | Yunel Escobar headed to DL?

Tampa Bay Rays INF Ryan Roberts has reportedly been scratched from a game at Triple-A Durham and is on his way to join the parent club. The Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin believes that the club must not have liked the way that SS Yunel Escobar (hamstring) looked and plans to put him on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Topkin is simply making an educated guess, but no reason to second-guess him. Ben Zobrist would probably play shortstop, allowing Kelly Johnson and Roberts to platoon at the keystone. Johnson may have some short-term value in mixed leagues if he hits.
