Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin acknowledged that SPs Jarrod Parker (forearm) and A.J. Griffin (elbow) are in jeopardy of starting the season on the disabled list. SP Jesse Chavez is expected to claim one of the rotation spots, and SP Tommy Milone is also likely to be in the starting five in April.
Fantasy Tip: Avoiding Parker and Griffin in your drafts might be the smart thing to do right now, until we know more about their injuries. Chavez and Milone are flier picks in cavernous mixed leagues and AL drafts.

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (forearm) is dealing with forearm tightness and will visit with Dr. James Andrew Monday, March 17.
Fantasy Tip: It's never a good thing when a pitcher goes to see Andrews about forearm or elbow problems. Keep tabs on how the visit goes. If Parker's issue is serious, there's a good bet Tommy Milone or Jesse Chavez will take his rotation spot.
