Baltimore Orioles OF Hyun-soo Kim drew his fifth straight start in left field on Sunday, May 29, and delivered a tiebreaking solo shot in the seventh inning off Cleveland Indians RP Jeff Manship.
Fantasy Tip: Given the recent struggles of early-season surprise Joey Rickard and Kim's continued excellence in spot duty prior to this week, it seemed only a matter of time before Kim saw increased playing time. The 28-year-old Korean is batting .383 and, at least at the moment, appears to be manager Buck Showalter's top choice to hit in between Adam Jones and Manny Machado. That's prime real estate for any hitter and a spot that should lead to many run-scoring opportunities, meaning owners probably need to pick him up off the wire immediately.

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters was sent to Class AAA Columbus. In corresponding moves, RP Jeff Manship was promoted to the parent club and SP Shaun Marcum was designated for assignment Thursday, June 18.
Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily players like Walters ($1,500, 3.0% of cap) wouldn't merit much mention, but this appears to be a sign the club intends to play Francisco Lindor ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Mike Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) more often. Keep an eye on how this affects Lindor in particular.

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed RP Jeff Manship (quadriceps) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right quadriceps. He suffered the injury attempting to leg out an infield hit in the 13th inning of the game against the New York Mets Saturday, May 31.

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jonathan Pettibone is expected to be called up to make the start Saturday, April 12. SP David Buchanan was eliminated from contention when he threw 93 pitches for Triple-A Lehigh Valley Tuesday, April 8. Manager Ryne Sandberg said Buchanan would not start on short rest. The other option would be P Jeff Manship, who is the long man in the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: If Pettibone is the choice, he may only be used for two starts, depending on the health of Cole Hamels (shoulder). That makes Pettibone strictly an option for NL-only leaguers looking for innings.

Philadelphia Phillies SPs Jonathan Pettibone and David Buchanan are the main candidates to make the start against the Miami Marlins Saturday, April 12, although RP Jeff Manship also has some starting experience. Pettibone and Buchanan are both at Triple-A Lehigh Valley right now. Buchanan could be pitching on short rest, since he's scheduled to go Tuesday, April 8, in the minors. Pettibone is on the 40-man roster while Buchanan is not.
Fantasy Tip: Pettibone would be the more obvious candidate, especially since he had experience pitching in the rotation last year. Neither pitcher will be of much use in fantasy leagues, however.
