The Houston Astros activated RP Joshua Fields (forearm) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 31, and placed SP Edgar G. Gonzalez (shoulder) on the 15-day DL with a right shoulder strain in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Fields could be in the mix for late-inning setup duties, but he, or the rest of the back end of the bullpen won't challenge Jose Veras for closing duties any time soon. Skipper Bo Porter is comfortable using Veras as the full-time closer for the time being.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Edgar G. Gonzalez will be available out of the bullpen. The team has yet to determine who will take SP J.A. Happ's (head) place in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: There a plethora of very mediocre options for the Blue Jays at Class AAA, including Miguel Batista, Dave Bush, Justin Germano and Claudio Vargas. Batista or Bush makes the most sense, but they'd basically just be filling needed innings on a temporary basis.

The Toronto Blue Jays placed SP J.A. Happ (head) on the 15-day disabled list with a head contusion Wednesday, May 8, and recalled SP Edgar G. Gonzalez from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Happ's fantasy implications are definitely secondary to his well being at the moment. Toronto will likely give him plenty of time to recover from an injury that could easily have been life-threatening. Gonzalez should only be considered in the deepest of AL-only leagues at the moment.
