Miguel Castro has been removed from the Blue Jays' closer role.

Brett Cecil, who was pulled from the closer role earlier this month, is back in. There's no easy answer for the Blue Jays right now, but Castro has really struggled of late, allowing runs in four out of his last five appearances and blowing two saves in the process. The Blue Jays are hoping that pitching in some lower-leverage situations will get him back on track.

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. Cecil was pulled from the closer role earlier this month and his velocity is still below what we've come to expect, but he needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues as long as the opportunity is there.

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.
Apr 28 - 3:40 PM

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.
Apr 28 - 3:36 PM

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.
