Cubs | Brian Matusz to start in Iowa

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 19:08:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs SP Brian Matusz is expected to be used as a starter with Class AAA Iowa, his original role before the Baltimore Orioles converted him to a left-handed specialist out of the bullpen. Several teams were interested in him as a starter, but he chose an organization with former O's SPs Jake Arrieta, Jason Hammel and Pedro Strop.

Fantasy Tip: Matusz will get a chance to resurrect his career in Chicago, but the contending Cubs have a tremendous rotation and it might be a while before we see Matusz on the north side. Avoid him in fantasy formats for now.

Cubs | Brian Matusz joins Cubs

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:13:06 -0700

Free-agent RP Brian Matusz (Orioles) signed a minor league deal with the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Matusz could be worth scooping up in NL-only leagues for ratios and K's if/when he arrives. Keep an eye on him.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo to DL

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 13:50:34 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder, biceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 23, with right shoulder biceps tendonitis. RP Brian Matusz (back, ribs) was activated from the disabled list. RP Vance Worley could be stretched out to start when Gallardo's turn comes around.

Fantasy Tip: Matusz has fringe mixed league value for ratios. Worley would be an AL-only option if they insert him into the rotation. For Gallardo owners, it could be a two-to-four-week absence depending on how the shoulder responds to rest and rehab. Stash him if you have the space.

Orioles | Brian Matusz makes rehab appearance

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 21:39:59 -0700

Baltimore Orioles P Brian Matusz (back, ribs) worked three scoreless innings for Class A Frederick in a minor-league rehab appearance Tuesday, April 19. "That's what we were looking for," manager Buck Showalter said.

Fantasy Tip: Matusz might be able to re-join the big club soon, but he will work in the bullpen and is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only rotisserie leagues for help in the ERA and WHIP categories.
