Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson is expected to return to the team Sunday, May 1. RP Nate Jones will be the primary closer with Robertson unavailable, but RPs Matt Albers and Zach Duke are possibilities, too, according to manager Robin Ventura.
Fantasy Tip: Jones is worth a flier if you're desperate for saves, but otherwise, Jones, Albers and Duke are fantasy afterthoughts in the majority of leagues. It is nice to know that Jones is next in line, though, so saves vultures could potentially hang onto him. Robertson's job is one of the most secure in the majors, though.

The Washington Nationals called up 3B Anthony Rendon from Triple-A Syracuse and P Ian Krol from Double-A Harrisburg Tuesday, June 4, and designated RPs Henry Rodriguez and Zach Duke for assignment in corresponding moves.
Fantasy Tip: Rendon was moved to second base at Syracuse with Danny Espinosa (wrist) ailing. It's not official yet, but it looks as though Espinosa will head to the disabled list. Rendon, although he's not starting tonight, should see plenty of playing time alongside Steve Lombardozzi at the keystone. Rendon should hit better than he did in his first call-up, especially now that he'll have frequent playing time over a longer period of time. Scoop him up wherever he's available.
