The Houston Astros optioned SPs Jordan Lyles and John Ely to Triple-A Oklahoma City Wednesday, March 20. Ps Alex White, Brad Peacock, Edgar G. Gonzalez and Erik Bedard are now battling for the final two spots in the starting rotation. Gonzalez is likely to be used in long relief. Lyles had given up 36 hits and 23 earned runs in just 11 2/3 spring innings.
Fantasy Tip: Lyles was working on some things this spring as he matures as a pitcher. Don't write him off after he made significant command gains at the end of last season. He'll be back. Peacock is probably the most intriguing pitcher in the competition for a roster spot and should be given a look in deep NL leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (hip) resumed throwing on flat ground Wednesday, Sept. 19, but there is no set timetable for his return. "I just think he needs to be able to start doing everything he usually does without any pain at all," manager Don Mattingly said. "It's up to him, really. He's the one who directs what he wants to release. He kind of dictates how he wants to let information out." SP Stephen Fife will likely keep filling in for Kershaw in the rotation, and SP John Ely could enter the rotation also.
