Brett Cecil is back as the Blue Jays' closer.
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said after Monday's game that he would have used Cecil in a save opportunity, so this doesn't come as a big surprise. Miguel Castro has really struggled of late and will now pitch in more lower-leverage situations. Roberto Osuna and Aaron Loup will help set up.
Anthony Rendon (knee) is not in Tuesday's lineup with Double-A Harrisburg.
Rendon was scratched from a rehab game Monday because he had trouble getting loose with his knee. That he's sitting again Tuesday isn't a good sign. The Nationals were originally hoping that he would be able to make his season debut as soon as Thursday against the Mets, but that obviously won't happen at this point.
Michael Cuddyer is not in the Mets' starting lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.
Wilmer Flores and Kevin Plawecki are also sitting. Kirk Nieuwenhuis will start in left field while Ruben Tejada plays shortstop and Anthony Recker starts behind the plate.
Mike Leake has been pushed back to start Thursday against the Braves.
Leake was originally scheduled to pitch Wednesday, but the Reds are calling up Micheal Lorenzen to pitch instead. Thursday's start remains a favorable matchup for those in mixed fantasy leagues.
The Reds will call up right-hander Michael Lorenzen to start Wednesday against the Brewers.
The Reds were forced to shuffle their rotation now that Homer Bailey (elbow) is on the disabled list. Mike Leake was originally scheduled to pitch Wednesday, but he has been pushed back to Thursday against the Braves. Lorenzen, 23, owns a 3.08 ERA over 28 starts and 21 relief appearances in the minors, but he has averaged just 6.4 K/9. He's strictly an NL-only option for now.
Mike Napoli (illness) is expected to miss another couple of days.
Napoli's illness is apparently contagious and will keep him out of the lineup for a second straight day Tuesday. Have a backup plan in mind in fantasy leagues this week.
Chris Coghlan is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Pirates.
He'll sit against left-hander Jeff Locke. Junior Lake will make his start of the season in left field and bat sixth.
Dodgers prospect LHP Julio Urias was brilliant on Monday for Double-A Tulsa, allowing one hit while striking out 10 batters in six shutout innings.
It was an outstanding bounce-back performance for the 18-year-old phenom, who surrendered five earned runs in six innings his last time out. Urias has been scored in just one of his four starts this season, and he now owns a 2.18 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 26/3 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 2/3 innings. The sky is the limit with Urias, the consensus top left-handed pitching prospect in baseball, though it’s hard to envision the Dodgers rushing him to the major leagues this season, even with the ongoing concerns regarding the team’s starting rotation.
