Seattle Mariners SP Adrian Sampson (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 24, because of a right flexor bundle strain. The team also optioned RP Tom Wilhelmsen to Class AAA Tacoma. Ps Wade LeBlanc, Donn Roach and David Rollins were recalled from Class AAA Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known who will take Sampson's spot in the starting rotation, but Taijuan Walker could return in the near future. Walker has a decent ERA despite his 3-6 record and should be used against favorable matchups.

Chicago Cubs SP Donn Roach will make another start against the Miami Marlins Saturday, July 4.
Fantasy Tip: Roach ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) allowed four earned runs in just 3 1/3 innings in his only other start this year against the St. Louis Cardinals. The matchup is a much better one for him, but he's still a deep sleeper best avoided on FantasyScore.

Chicago Cubs SP Donn Roach was recalled from Class AAA Iowa Saturday, June 27. RP Yoervis Medina was optioned to Iowa.
Fantasy Tip: Give Roach a start or two to see what he has in the show before using him on FantasyScore.

Chicago Cubs SP Donn Roach will start against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, June 27.
Fantasy Tip: Roach stands as an extremely risky option in all fantasy formats. He has pitched extremely well with Class AAA Iowa, though. Over 14 starts, Roach has a 7-1 record, a 2.29 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. His 3.6 K/9 is extremely low, however, and it stands to limit his upside.

Fantasy Tip: Hahn is making his major league debut against the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday night, but it could end up just being a spot start with Andrew Cashner (elbow) on the verge of returning from a DL stint.
