Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Laffey was designated for assignment Friday, April 26, after his spot start against the New York Yankees in place of the injured SP Josh Johnson (triceps).

Toronto Blue Jays SP Josh Johnson (triceps) was scratched from his start Friday, April 26, with tightness in his right triceps. P Aaron Laffey will start in his place.
Fantasy Tip: It's too early to declare a DL stint is coming, but we're leaning that way. Johnson has been awful in his transition to the American League with a 6.86 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP. What was once considered to be one of the brightest young stars on the mound is slowly dimming. Ricky Romero probably isn't an option at this point, as he'll make his first start at Class A Dunedin this weekend.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said SP Aaron Laffey is likely to start for SP Shaun Marcum (neck, shoulder) Sunday, April 7.

Updating previous items, New York Mets SP Aaron Laffey is expected to enter the season as the team's No. 5 starter in place of SP Shaun Marcum (neck, shoulder). Marcum hasn't pitched since March 16 due to a shoulder impingement and neck stiffness. Laffey will work out of the bullpen until a fifth starter is needed to open the season.
Fantasy Tip: Laffey is basically a warm body in fantasy leagues and will probably hurt you more than he helps, even in NL-only leagues. Zack Wheeler needs more work in the minors, otherwise he would be the no-brainer option.

The New York Mets are discussing possibly signing free-agent SP Chris Young (Nationals) with SP Shaun Marcum (neck) nursing injuries. However, a team source said it's unlikely to happen. SPs Aaron Laffey or Collin McHugh could fill in for Marcum in the rotation if need be.
