Twins | Ricky Nolasco to DL

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 12:21:01 -0700

The Minnesota Twins will place SP Ricky Nolasco (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain Tuesday, July 8. OF Chris Herrmann will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester. The move is retroactive to July 6. The Twins haven't announced who'll replace Nolasco in the rotation, but it could be SPs Samuel Deduno or Anthony Swarzak. Herrmann was batting .314 with two home runs and 15 RBIs with Rochester and had been splitting time between catcher and the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco should only be held onto in AL-only leagues at this point. Deduno or Swarzak likely only have short-term value in the starting rotation and aren't worth much consideration, aside from AL leagues.

Twins | Scott Diamond, Anthony Swarzak improving

Wed, 03 Apr 2013 15:08:37 -0700

Minnesota Twins SPs Scott Diamond (elbow) and Anthony Swarzak (ribs) both pitched in extended spring training Tuesday, April 2, and received positive reports. Diamond struck out seven hitters in five innings and will start again for Single-A Fort Myers Sunday, April 7, and could rejoin the rotation by April 12. Swarzak struck out five in four innings Tuesday but isn't expected to return when eligible Saturday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Check to see if Diamond is available in AL leagues. Swarzak is more of a long relief option out of the bullpen, so he can be ignored aside from the cavernous AL-only formats.
