Toronto Blue Jays RPs Brett Cecil (triceps) and Franklin Morales (shoulder) will continue their rehab assignments with Class AAA Buffalo, after both hurlers made appearances for Class A Dunedin Thursday, June 23.
Fantasy Tip: Of the two southpaws, Cecil has the greater fantasy value at this point in AL-only fantasy leagues, because of his ability to contribute in the ERA and WHIP categories. Morales has experience as a starter but will likely be used as a reliever when he returns from the disabled list.

Milwaukee Brewers P Franklin Morales is expected to make his first Cactus League spring appearance with the team soon. He has an opt-out date of March 28 that will allow him to become a free agent, so the team needs to see if he can help them soon.
Fantasy Tip: Morales has experience in the rotation, but he is expected to start out in the bullpen if he makes the team. Even if he nails down a spot in the bullpen his fantasy ceiling is rather limited.

Colorado Rockies SP Franklin Morales could be placed on the paternity list if he is not available to pitch Saturday, Aug. 16. Morales likely will be used out of the bullpen if he returns Saturday.

Colorado Rockies RP Matt Belisle will make an emergency start in place of SP Franklin Morales Friday, Aug. 15, against the Cincinnati Reds.
Fantasy Tip: Belisle hasn't started a game since 2008, so he should be avoided fantasy. Remove Morales from all lineups, too.

Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier and C Devin Mesoraco are not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 15, against the Colorado Rockies. C Brayan Pena is starting behind the plate and batting fifth, and 2B Ramon Santiago is playing third base and batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Remove Mesoraco and Fraizer from your daily lineups. This leaves the already depleted Reds lineup without its two best hitters. If ever there was a time to put Franklin Morales in a fantasy lineup, it is tonight. Morales' price in daily games makes him a high-reward option tonight, but obviously he is very risky.

Colorado Rockies SP Franklin Morales will make the start Sunday, Aug. 10, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Morales temporarily had been demoted to the bullpen in favor of Yohan Flande, but an injury to Brett Anderson opened up a spot in the rotation. He is nothing more than an NL-only fantasy option in the deepest of leagues.

The Colorado Rockies have moved SP Franklin Morales from the starting rotation to the bullpen. He was scheduled to start Thursday, Aug. 7, but SP Yohan Flande will take that spot instead.
