Braves | Arodys Vizcaino lands on DL

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 13:49:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves RP Arodys Vizcaino (oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 16, with a strained right oblique. RP Eric O'Flaherty (knee) was activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Jim Johnson is next in line for saves. However, at this point, you pretty much know what he is with a 4.06 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He has 27 K's in 31 innings. Since the team is rebuilding, they could opt to use Chris Withrow or Mauricio Cabrera in the role. Withrow, 27, has a 3.51 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP with a 7.01 K/9. Cabrera has two saves, but one of them came in extras. Obliques usually cost pitchers a month, and Johnson could be trade bait at the deadline. If you're looking for the biggest bang for your FAAB buck, Withrow or Cabrera could be worth some deep fishing lures. Stash Vizcaino as he could slide right back into the role upon his return.

Pirates | Jeff Locke to work Wednesday

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 19:42:56 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke will work in the Grapefruit League spring game Wednesday, March 2, against the Detroit Tigers and he will be followed by Ps Juan Nicasio, Jared Hughes, Arquimedes Caminero, Eric O'Flaherty and Jorge Rondon.

Fantasy Tip: Locke went 8-11 with a 4.49 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP in 30 starts while striking out 129 over 168 1/3 innings. It was a so-so year for the southpaw, who had a career-high ERA, but also had his most strikeouts while serving up one fewer homer in 37 more innings than 2014. If he can re-gain his control he isn't a bad back-end fantasy rotation option in NL-only leagues.

Athletics | OAK closer situation in flux

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:41:40 -0700

The Oakland Athletics have not yet determined their closer situation following the trade of RP Tyler Clippard. Free-agents-to-be RPs Edward Mujica and Eric O'Flaherty could also be dealt.

Fantasy Tip: The Athletics bullpen could be a mess down the stretch, but whomever emerges as the closer could be a decent addition in AL-only fantasy play.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle feeling better

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 11:25:26 -0800

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is feeling much better after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection in his shoulder to alleviate swelling and irritation. He's started range-of-motion stretching. However, there's no timetable for when he'll throw again, and he's still expected to miss the start of the season. RPs Tyler Clippard, Eric O'Flaherty and Ryan Cook are the obvious candidates to take over closing duties with Doolittle out.
