Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker (back) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 20, because he is getting a day off to rest his back.
FANTASY TIP: Walker is playing through the back injury, but likely will be getting more days off to allow the back to rest. Owners will need to check the lineup each day until he is completely recovered from the injury.

Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a light bullpen session Thursday, Aug. 21, and expects to start in one of the two games Saturday, Aug. 23.
FANTASY TIP: Verlander is coming off a shoulder injury, so it is not known how he will pitch when he rejoins the starting rotation. Owners could consider keeping him out of their lineups until they see him pitch again.
