New York Yankees SP Bryan Mitchell was recalled for long-relief insurance if SP Esmil Rogers cannot pitch deep into the game Friday, Aug. 8, against the Cleveland Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Rogers hasn't started a game all season, so it makes sense. Mitchell's stay in the big leagues may be short.

New York Yankees SP Esmil Rogers will start Friday, Aug. 7, against the Cleveland Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Rogers hasn't started a game all season. It isn't time to start him in fantasy, either. He could pitch his way into AL-only consideration, though.

The New York Yankees might look to P Esmil Rogers as a rotation replacement for SP David Phelps (elbow), or SP Chase Whitley, who relieved Phelps Sunday, Aug. 3. Whitley made 12 starts before being shifted to the bullpen. There is also an outside chance SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) could be in the mix, although manager Joe Girardi seemed to indicate Monday that is unlikely for now.

The New York Yankees have placed SP David Phelps (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list because of elbow tendinitis. The team also recalled RP Matt Daley from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: The team has not announced who will take Phelps' spot in the starting rotation, but Esmil Rogers could be an option. Rogers likely would only be an option for AL-only owners desperate for pitching.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez will be called up Tuesday, July 22, along with INF Ryan Goins and RP Esmil Rogers. Sanchez was recently moved to the bullpen during his brief time at Triple-A Buffalo and probably will serve the same role in the bigs. Goins might not be there long because Steve Tolleson will be on paternity leave. Rogers will serve as a swingman reliever.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez could be worth an AL-only stash in case he earns a bigger role, but there's not much immediate value here.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman was scratched from his start for Triple-A Buffalo Friday, May 30. There are no health issues, according to manager Gary Allenson, and the reasoning has not been made public. SP Esmil Rogers is starting in Stroman's place.
Fantasy Tip: Hmmmm ... is this a sign that he's either joining the big club? Perhaps, in a long shot, is he being shipped to the Chicago Cubs for Jeff Samardzija? Stay tuned for more.
