Baltimore Orioles SS J.J. Hardy and C Matt Wieters (foot) remain out of the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Sunday, July 24. INF Ryan Flaherty will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Caleb Joseph will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, OF Julio Borbon is back in left field and will hit ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Flaherty is 5-for-11 versus Kluber in his career, while Joseph is 7-for-19 over the past week following a slow start at the plate this year. Both players are worth considering as inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy games.

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (back) and C Matt Wieters (foot) are out of the lineup Thursday, July 21. C Caleb Joseph and OF Julio Borbon are hitting eighth and ninth, respectively.

Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 19, because of a right hamstring strain. The team recalled OF Julio Borbon from Class AA Bowie.
Fantasy Tip: Kim could be sidelined for an extended period of time because of his hamstring injury, so owners should look for a possible timetable. Owners may want to keep Kim on their roster if they can because he helps with his batting average. Joey Rickard should receive more playing time and can help owners in AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

The Chicago Cubs hope OF David DeJesus (shoulder) will be able to play in games at the team complex in Mesa, Ariz., next week. There still isn't a timetable for his return.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Ryan Sweeney (rib) sustained a fractured left rib after running into the outfield wall Saturday, June 29, in a game against the Seattle Mariners. He will not be allowed to do baseball activities for four to six weeks and will be placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 2.
Fantasy Tip: For now, the light-hitting Julio Borbon figures to get the bulk of the starts in center field for the Cubs. He offers solid defense and good speed on the bases but not much else, so he should only be considered in deep NL-only leagues.
