Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price said all of the team's young pitchers, including SPs Anthony DeSclafani, Michael Lorenzen, Raisel Iglesias, David Holmberg, Keyvius Sampson, Robert Stephenson, Brandon Finnegan and John Lamb will have their innings monitored as the season wears on. "The biggest challenge is for a lot of guys who will be considered for call-ups for September or even earlier. We'll have guys who don't have that first major-league season where they pitched in September and had a chance to take their workload from 145 innings or 150 to 175 or 185. We'll have a lot of guys who we'll have to be cautious with their innings."
Fantasy Tip: That's not what owners of any of these pitchers want to hear, but it's a reality that often affects all young pitchers and their fantasy owners as the season winds down. On FantasyScore, none of the Reds young pitchers is ever a slam dunk, and their daily value will likely only continue to plummet if they are kept on pitch counts or innings limits.

Cincinnati Reds SP Keyvius Sampson will join the starting rotation and start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, Aug. 2.
Fantasy Tip: Through 39 innings with Class AAA Louisville, Sampson had a 5.08 ERA, a 1.59 WHIP and a 7.6 K/9, so fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check. Still, he'll hold value in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, if he sticks in the rotation. FantasyScore players should take a wait-and-see approach.

The Cincinnati Reds need a pitcher to replace SP Jon Moscot (shoulder) in the rotation, and the options are SPs David Holmberg, Keyvius Sampson and Josh Smith.
Fantasy Tip: Moscot is likely to be sidelined a while due to a dislocation of his shoulder, so the replacement pitcher has a chance to be in the rotation for a while. FantasyScore players could find great value in the replacement.

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Cashner has been good this season, despite low run support, with a 2.35 ERA and 47 K's in 57 1/3 innings. Juan Pablo Oramas or Keyvius Sampson could be options to replace Cashner at Triple-A El Paso. Neither has much value outside of NL-only leagues, but they have potential with K/9s close to 9.00 on the season.
