The Miami Marlins are expected to recall RPs Vin Mazzaro and Andre Rienzo from Class AAA New Orleans to replace injured SPs Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) and Mat Latos (knee) on the 25-man roster. The team will not need another starting pitcher until their game against the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday, May 26, when either SP Justin Nicolino or Jose Urena could be promoted.
Fantasy Tip: As a result of Alvarez and Latos being placed on the disabled list, it's possible that whoever gets the starting nod for Tuesday's game will stick around in the rotation for at least one more start. Nicolino, who is one of the organization's top prospects, is 3-1 with a 2.09 ERA in eight starts for New Orleans, while Urena has pitched even better, going 4-0 with a 1.21 ERA in six starts.

The Chicago White Sox activated RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, Aug. 8, and optioned RP Andre Rienzo in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Jake Petricka has been holding down the ninth-inning save duties with Putnam on the DL. Putnam could threaten Petricka for save chances eventually, so if you're searching for saves avenues, Putnam is worth a look in deeper leagues.

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list Thursday, July 24, with right shoulder inflammation. In a corresponding move, RP Andre Rienzo was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.
Fantasy Tip: Putnam was getting looks in the ninth inning, so with him out of the committee, Jake Petricka should see more opportunities. Javy Guerra and Daniel Webb could also get an occasional chance. Matt Lindstrom should take over closing duties, when he returns from his ankle injury. However, Perticka is an immediate add, with Guerra and Webb more speculative additions, for those chasing saves.

Although they have struggled in recent outings, Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura plans to stick with SPs Hector Noesi and Andre Rienzo for the time being.

Due to the rainout Tuesday, June 10, Chicago White Sox SP Andre Rienzo will have his turn in the rotation skipped and he will not start again until Sunday, June 15.
Fantasy Tip: There was some doubt if Rienzo would stick around in the rotation this week, but his skipped gave him a vote of confidence for at least one more start. He likely needs to have an adequate outing Sunday, or his starting job could be in jeopardy. Right now he is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues.
