Tanner Roark is expected to start on Tuesday against the Cubs.

With Doug Fister (elbow) out indefinitely, it appears the Nationals are ready to move Roark back into the rotation. He hasn't pitched in five days, but he faced hitters on Friday and figures to be on a pretty limited pitch count Tuesday. The owner of a career 2.70 ERA over 36 starts, Roark should be scooped up in fantasy leagues where he remains unowned.
May 22 - 4:25 PM

Justin Verlander (triceps) will throw a simulated game on Tuesday.

If that goes well, he should then be cleared to begin a rehab assignment. Verlander has been out all season with a strained right triceps but has progressed nicely the last couple weeks after resuming a throwing program. Still, he probably won't be activated until mid-June even in a best-case scenario.
May 22 - 4:17 PM

Samuel Deduno (back) will throw a bullpen session Saturday.

Deduno was sent for an MRI on his ailing back, but it evidently came back clean and he's ready to throw again. He'll be used in long relief once activated.
May 22 - 4:15 PM

Rangers recalled OF Jake Smolinski from Triple-A Round Rock.

Smolinski batted just .140/.290/.220 batting line over 62 plate appearances for the Rangers earlier this season. He'll likely be around only for the weekend, as Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is due to be activated Monday.
May 22 - 4:12 PM

Rangers placed 1B/DH Kyle Blanks on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 20, with a pilonidal cyst.

Blanks was off to a .322/.365/.542 start with three homers over 15 games for the Rangers, but he's now making yet another trip to the DL. It's not clear how long he'll be out. Jake Smolinski has replace him on the roster.
May 22 - 4:10 PM

The Twins have moved pitching prospect Alex Meyer to the bullpen at Triple-A Rochester.

It's hard to imagine the Twins giving up on Meyer as a starter, but for now they'll see if he can rediscover himself while working in shorter stints. The 25-year-old has struck out 41 over 39 1/3 innings at Rochester this season but has also walked 24 while holding a 7.09 ERA. Meyer entered the season ranked by Baseball Prospectus as the No. 14 prospect in baseball.

Michael Morse is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

The slumping veteran has been seeing quite a bit of time off lately. Justin Bour is at first base in Morse's place.
May 22 - 4:01 PM

Christian Yelich is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Yelich is down to .180/.263/.236 for the season and will get a day off to regroup. Ichiro Suzuki is covering left field.

    Things are getting heated in Atlanta. Braves just went Michael Pineda on Will Smith, thrown out for a foreign substance.
  • John Danks 2015 Outlook

    Didn't see a thread him. That means this is a good forum.
  • Ben Paulsen 2015 Outlook

    Last year after Blackmon and Dickerson did their thing... I promised myself that any Rockie with starting job = pick up ...
  • Ryan Howard 2015 Outlook

    Seriously no thread? I know he is ancient but he now has more homers then Votto and Carlos Santana.
