The latest Samuel Deduno MLB and fantasy baseball news

The Minnesota Twins will recall SP Samuel Deduno and place him in the rotation Friday, May 24, passing up top prospect Kyle Gibson. Deduno will replace Pedro Hernandez.
Fantasy Tip: Deduno is best known for his success in this March's World Baseball Classic for the champion Dominican Republic squad. His control issues have held him back from taking a step forward in the bigs, though AL-only scroungers could find useful, roster-capping innings here, especially during home starts. Gibson, however, should be a factor for the Twins sometime this summer after his Super 2 status clears.

Minnesota Twins SPs Kyle Gibson, P.J. Walters and Samuel Deduno are all candidates to start Friday, May 24.
Fantasy Tip: Gibson easily has the most upside of this group, but the Twins may decide to be cautious with him since it's his first full season since returning from Tommy John surgery. Gibson is the only one of these three that warrants consideration in mixed leagues.

Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was impressed with how SP Samuel Deduno pitched in the World Baseball Classic, and he said he's firmly in the mix for a starting rotation spot.
