Pirates | Gerrit Cole tosses sim game

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:57:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) was able to throw 70 pitches in a simulated game Wednesday, July 23. Cole said he feels good, but the team isn't going to rush him back. Cole might need a minor-league rehab assignment.

Mets | Bartolo Colon available

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:56:37 -0700

The New York Mets have made SP Bartolo Colon available in trade talks, although there did not seem to be much of a scouting presence at Safeco Field in Seattle for his most recent start Wednesday, July 23.

FANTASY TIP: If Colon could replicate his results from Wednesday, teams would be lining up for his services, as he retired the first 20 batters he faced. His fantasy value might take a little bit of a jump if he moves to a contender, but for now he is a back-end rotation option for fantasy owners in most formats.

Mets | Bartolo Colon flirts with perfection

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:56:08 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon retired the first 20 batters he faced Wednesday, July 23, against the Seattle Mariners before losing his perfect game. It was the longest perfection bid by a Mets pitcher since SP Matt Harvey May 7, 2013. Colon ended up allowing two runs, three hits and a walk with five strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings.

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:55:39 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson (illness) is uncertain for the series opener Thursday, July 24, against the Milwaukee Brewers due to flu-like symptoms, according to manager Terry Collins.

Mets | Eric Campbell likely to start Thursday

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:55:05 -0700

New York Mets 3B Eric Campbell is likely to get the start at shortstop Thursday, July 24, with SS Ruben Tejada (head) likely to need a day off after being hit in the head by a pitch.

FANTASY TIP: Daily fantasy owners might want to take note, as Campbell can sometimes be used at various positions with certain fantasy providers. He recently had a 10-game hitting streak, and comes on the cheap in salary cap formats.

Mets | Ruben Tejada feeling fine

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:53:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada (head) was feeling "pretty good" after the game Wednesday, July 23, after being hit in the head by a pitch, according to manager Terry Collins. Team doctors said he had no concussion-like symptoms, and he will travel with the team. There is no call-up pending.

FANTASY TIP: If you're in an NL-only fantasy leagues which allows daily transactions, it is a good idea to reserve him. Tejada is likely to get the day off Thursday, regardless of how he feels.

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:53:25 -0700

The Seattle Mariners optioned SP Taijuan Walker to Triple-A Tacoma Wednesday, July 23. The team is expected to announce a corresponding move, likely a position player, before the game Thursday, July 24.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira DL trip possible

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) may require a DL stint, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

FANTASY TIP: Tex's up-and-down season seems to have hit another valley. Brian McCann may line up at first base for the duration, especially with INF/OF Kelly Johnson (groin) on the disabled list. It'd be good for McCann's value to play more frequently and not behind the plate.
