Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Baker is expected to start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, May 2.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to check back for an official announcement, but outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, Baker ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) isn't worth starting. There is upside, but he has only made 12 starts since 2011, and at 33, you'll want to see him prove he can still retire batters consistently.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Baker is expected to start Sunday, April 26, against the San Diego Padres. Baker will be making his first start of the season at the major league level.
Fantasy Tip: Baker represents too much risk to start Sunday. The Dodgers are just biding their time until SP Hyun-Jin Ryu ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) (shoulder) returns from the disabled list. Baker and his career 4.25 ERA should be left alone.

The Philadelphia Phillies may look outside the organization for a fifth starter to complement SPs Cole Hamels, Aaron Harang, David Buchanan and Jerome Williams. Names tossed about include free-agent SP Jhoulys Chacin (Rockies), free-agent SP Scott Baker (Yankees) and free-agent SP Felix Doubront (Cubs).
Fantasy Tip: It may be worth a pick towards the last few rounds of deep NL drafts depending on who wins the job. Stay tuned.

New York Yankees SP Scott Baker was released Sunday, March 29. Baker had signed a deal that would've been worth $1.5 million if he had made the major league roster to begin the 2015 season.
Fantasy Tip: Baker hasn't had a productive fantasy season since 2011 with the Minnesota Twins. It is unlikely Baker receives anything other than a minor-league deal at this point, and is very unlikely to possess any fantasy value this season.
