Milwaukee Brewers SP Marco Estrada (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. The club has recalled P Tyler Thornburg from Triple-A Nashville to take Estrada's place on the roster. Writer Tom Haudricourt speculates that Thornburg was probably called up to take Estrada's next turn, which comes on Saturday, June 8, against the Philadelphia Phillies, unless Milwaukee needs him out of the bullpen beforehand.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how long Estrada will be sidelined, but it could be more than the minimum based on previous reports. Thornburg is an interesting prospect, but as Haudricourt notes, he's not had a good season for the Sounds, so fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach. The Brewers could end up recalling and going with Mike Fiers, who has also disappointed this season.
