Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Orioles | Jason Hammel to DL

The Baltimore Orioles placed SP Jason Hammel (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list with right forearm tightness Wednesday, July 31, and OF Steve Pearce was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move. Also, RP Jairo Asencio has cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Bud Norris, who the O's just traded for today, will effectively take Hammel's place in the rotation. It's unclear if Hammel will have a rotation spot when he's ready to return, but he can be dropped in shallow formats.
