The Promise of Youth

The Promise of Youth
A few older closers are still making it work, but the promise of youth is too much to ignore, in your pens, and in your lineups.

Shawn Kelley collected his fourth save of the season in the Yankees' win over the Cubs in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Kelley gave up a two-out single to Anthony Rizzo in the top of the ninth inning and then Rizzo advanced to second base on fielder's indifference, but Kelley rallied back to strike out Nate Schierholtz and end the threat. Kelley remains a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues until David Robertson returns from the disabled list.
Apr 16 - 4:01 PM

Carlos Beltran hit his fourth home run as the Yankees beat the Cubs in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Beltran hit his solo shot in the bottom of the first inning and then drew a walk in the bottom of the third. He's batting .313 with a 1.025 OPS so far in pinstripes.
Apr 16 - 3:58 PM

Tommy Hunter notched his fourth save of the season with a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Hunter allowed a leadoff single to Desmond Jennings to start the ninth but bounce back with a groundout, a flyout and then a strikeout to end it. The Orioles closer blew a save the last time out but has pitched well overall this year, holding a 3.60 ERA and 1.00 WHIP to go along with a 5/0 K/BB ratio.
Apr 16 - 3:57 PM

Jason Hammel surrendered three earned runs over seven innings as the Cubs dropped the first half of Wednesday's day-night doubleheader at Yankee Stadium

Hammel served up a solo home run to Carlos Beltran in the bottom of the first inning and then single runs in the fourth and fifth. He'll carry a 2-1 record, 3.05 ERA, and 0.73 WHIP into his next outing versus Arizona.
Apr 16 - 3:56 PM

Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 in the Cubs' loss to the Yankees in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader.

The Cubs only collected three total hits in the game -- Junior Lake had the other one -- and they were all singles. Rizzo is batting .333/.397/.490 on the year.
Apr 16 - 3:54 PM

Jake Odorizzi was charged with three runs on five hits and three walks over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

Odorizzi wasn't hit hard, as the Orioles didn't have a single extra-base hit and scored their runs on a sac fly, a groundout and an infield single. However, the righty was a little wild and required 95 pitches to cover the five frames. Odorizzi, who holds a 5.63 ERA over his first three outings, will try to bounce back next week against the Twins.

Rangers sent RHP Daniel McCutchen outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

McCutchen was designated for assignment Tuesday but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. He could get another shot later this summer.
Apr 16 - 3:49 PM

Mariners recalled INF Nick Franklin from Triple-A Tacoma.

Franklin earned the promotion after batting .395/.469/.744 with four homers and 13 RBI over his first 11 Triple-A contests this season. While he has yet to play the outfield in any professional game, Franklin played there some in spring training and the rumor is that he could see some time there while up with the big club. He'd probably have to be used some in the outfield to have much fantasy value, as there's really no room for him to play anywhere else.
