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 could look to call up SP Tyler Matzek from Triple-A Colorado Springs or SP Jon Gray from Double-A Tulsa with SP Jordan Lyles (hand) out. They could also insert P Franklin Morales back into the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: The latter two options seem to be a reach. Matzek is 5-3 with a 4.15 ERA and 52 K's in 60 2/3 innings. He'd be worth a look in NL-only formats with some matchup value in mixed leagues.

Colorado Rockies SP Franklin Morales was bumped from the rotation and moved to the bullpen Tuesday, June 3. He posted an 0-3 record with a 6.03 ERA in the month of May. He was available out of the bullpen Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: If you were relying on Morales in NL-only fantasy play, drop him immediately. Eddie Butler will be promoted from Double-A to take his spot in the rotation, and is a decent replacement with some upside.

If Colorado Rockies SP Brett Anderson (finger) goes on the disabled list, P Franklin Morales appears to be a strong candidate to replace him in the starting rotation. Morales was recently demoted to the bullpen in favor of SP Jordan Lyles but has not yet pitched in relief.
