Boston Red Sox RP Joel Hanrahan blew his first save of the season by allowing a three-run home run to Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado in the ninth inning Wednesday, April 10.
Fantasy Tip: Hanrahan was brought to Boston specifically to serve as the closer, so he'll need to go through an extended stretch of poor performances for John Farrell to even consider going to Andrew Bailey for fireman duties. Continue to roll with Hanrahan.

Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday, Feb. 15, that 3B Manny Machado will concentrate only on third base, and he is not an option to serve as the backup to SS J.J. Hardy even though the team has no clear-cut player at the position. "No," Showalter said. "It doesn't need to be answered, but the question is whether - God forbid - (if) we have a long-term injury to J.J., where do we go? That's why we want to find out our options at shortstop behind J.J."

The Detroit Tigers and Chicago Cubs have discussed a trade for SP Rick Porcello, but the Tigers are trying to get the Baltimore Orioles and SS J.J. Hardy involved in the deal. The Tigers like Hardy, and do not feel the Cubs have the necessary components for a straight-up trade between the two sides. Moving Hardy would allow the Orioles to move 3B Manny Machado back to shortstop in 2013, but the deal would reportedly have to bowl over the Orioles to get them interested.

The Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers are reportedly discussing a deal that would send SP Rick Porcello to Chicago. The Tigers are trying to get the Baltimore Orioles involved in this deal in order to acquire SS J.J. Hardy, and they don't think the Cubs have the necessary players to make it a two-team trade. In this three-team deal, the Cubs would have to send pitching Baltimore's way. However, the O's probably aren't very motivated to get rid of Hardy unless they are overwhelmed in a trade. Baltimore isn't prepared to move 3B Manny Machado to shortstop this season. The Orioles are also interested in adding Porcello.
