J.T. Realmuto will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

It's an outside-the-box choice as the Marlins try to fill the void left by the suspended Dee Gordon. But Realmuto has some speed and is batting .312/.329/.455 through 20 games this season. It's worth a shot, especially with lefty Patrick Corbin on the mound.
May 3 - 3:30 PM

Reds activated LHP John Lamb from the 15-day disabled list.

Lamb will start Tuesday in place of Jon Moscot, who has been dealing with a shoulder issue. Acquired from the Royals in the Johnny Cueto deal last July, the 25-year-old Lamb was forced to begin this season on the disabled list following back surgery in December. He had an ugly 9.22 ERA through three rehab starts in Triple-A, but he had a 12/3 K/BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings and averaged 10.5 K/9 over 10 starts with the Reds late last year. He's worth grabbing in NL-only formats.
May 3 - 3:26 PM

Athletics SS prospect Franklin Barreto paced Double-A Midland with three hits including a solo home run Monday in a win over visiting San Antonio.

Barreto got off to a sluggish start this season but has raised his average over 200 points since April 22 by going 20 for his last 46 at the plate. He's collected at least two hits in five of his last six games, stealing four bases over that stretch. The 20-year-old is tied for eighth in the Texas League with 20 runs scored this year.

Manny Machado will start at third base Tuesday against the Yankees.

Many were expecting Machado to get the first crack to fill in for J.J. Hardy (foot) at shortstop, but he's staying put on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the newly-recalled Ryan Flaherty will start at shortstop. We still think Machado still has a chance to see some time at shortstop, which would obviously be nice for his fantasy value.
May 3 - 3:18 PM

Astros RHP prospect Joe Musgrove notched five strikeouts over six shutout innings Monday in a win for Double-A Corpus Christi.

He scattered five hits and one walk. Opposing hitters have been no match for Musgrove this year. So far he's held opponents to a .193 average with 26 strikeouts in 88 at-bats. The dominant right-hander leads the Texas League in ERA (0.39) and is second in WHIP (0.86). Musgrove hasn't allowed an earned run since April 19 at Springfield. The 23-year-old began his career in the Blue Jays' organization but was traded to Houston in 2012.

Orioles placed SS J.J. Hardy on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 2, with a left foot fracture.

Hardy suffered the injury when he fouled a ball off his foot in the fourth inning of Sunday's game. He's expected to miss around 6-8 weeks. Manny Machado is an option to fill in at shortstop during Hardy's absence, though Ryan Flaherty is getting the first start there Tuesday. Chris Davis and Pedro Alvarez could see time at third base if Machado makes the move to shortstop.
May 3 - 3:12 PM

Orioles recalled INF Ryan Flaherty from Triple-A Norfolk.

He'll replace the injured J.J. Hardy (foot) on the active roster. It's unclear how the Orioles intend to play it in their infield with Hardy sidelined, but Flaherty should see some starts. The 29-year-old is a .215 hitter in the majors, but he offers some pop and could be relevant in AL-only leagues if the playing time is there.
May 3 - 3:09 PM

Yankees RHP prospect Cale Coshow surrendered just one hit over six scoreless innings Monday for Double-A Trenton.

Akron came from behind to win 2-1, forcing Coshow to settle for another no-decision. Coshow remains winless despite an impressive 2.89 ERA. The 23-year-old has struggled with control at times, walking 12 batters in 28 innings this season. Opponents have hit .224 against him with 18 strikeouts in 98 at-bats. Coshow pitched out of the bullpen early in his career but has been used exclusively as a starter since joining Trenton late last season.
