Rangers | Geovany Soto back to DL

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 12:48:48 -0700

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 22, with a strained right groin. Soto left the game early Monday, July 21, with tightness in the same groin.

FANTASY TIP: If you took a leap of faith on Soto, and cannot stash him in a disabled list slot, he is safe to drop. When healthy, he has marginal value in two-catcher formats and AL-only leagues, so check back for his return.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 12:42:28 -0700

FANTASY TIP: When Hefner's return gets closer, he will be worth a flier in NL-only leagues.

Blue Jays | Will cut Brad Mills

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 11:36:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Brad Mills will be designated for assignment Tuesday, July 22, to make room for SP Aaron Sanchez.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez, more coming up

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 11:30:38 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez will be called up Tuesday, July 22, along with INF Ryan Goins and RP Esmil Rogers. Sanchez was recently moved to the bullpen during his brief time at Triple-A Buffalo and probably will serve the same role in the bigs. Goins might not be there long because Steve Tolleson will be on paternity leave. Rogers will serve as a swingman reliever.

FANTASY TIP: Sanchez could be worth an AL-only stash in case he earns a bigger role, but there's not much immediate value here.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 11:29:18 -0700
