Arizona Diamondbacks SPs Archie Bradley and Edwin Escobar will start against the San Diego Padres Sunday, May 29, and the Houston Astros Monday, May 30, respectively, manager Chip Hale announced Friday, May 27.
Fantasy Tip: Through his first two starts of the season, Bradley has allowed nine runs through just 10 1/3 innings, which makes him a risky option in all fantasy formats. Escobar owns a 4.79 ERA through 220 innings at the Class AAA level, and it'll be his first career start Monday, so he is an equally risky start. Both are nothing more than flier adds in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

The San Francisco Giants have acquired SP Jake Peavy from the Boston Red Sox, in exchange for minor league Ps Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree.
Fantasy Tip: Peavy has posted an unsightly 1-9 record and 4.72 ERA this season but has pitched better of late, having had five quality starts in his last seven outings. He is worthy of consideration in NL-only leagues but if you're expecting him to be as dominant as he was with the San Diego Padres, you'll probably be sorely disappointed. Expect Yusmeiro Petit to lose his spot in San Francisco’s starting rotation to make room for Peavy.
