Colorado Rockies SP Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) will make a minor-league rehab start Tuesday, April 15, with Class A Modesto. He might be cleared to return to the Rockies rotation April 28 or May 3.
Fantasy Tip: Chacin will certainly be welcomed back with open arms after Brett Anderson went down with a longer term injury, and Franklin Morales has struggled in a starting role. Fantasy owners will want to keep Chacin reserved until he can make one full start without any setbacks.

Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles is one of the arms competing for the open rotation spot that's likely to occur with Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) injured. Lyles tossed three scoreless innings Tuesday, March 11, with four strikeouts. Lyles holds a 1.13 spring ERA and has made some adjustments with pitching coach Jim Wright. The right-hander has improved the angle on his fastball that may force more ground balls from opponents.
Fantasy Tip: If you have to dive into this SP pool, hold your nose. The competition also involves Franklin Morales and Christian Friedrich. Lyles once had a mildly intriguing pedigree but is in a tough situation to succeed, even with his grounder background. Tread carefully, NL-only poachers.

It's almost a certainty that he'll start the season on the disabled list, though.
