Roy Oswalt's agent, Bob Garber, told Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com that his client has been working out on the Mississippi State campus and is "waiting for the right offer from a contender."

Garber says that geography will not be a factor in Oswalt's decision as it was a year ago, and that Oswalt's only focus now is to pitch for a club in contention. Garber also said the veteran right-hander would be willing to pitch in late-inning relief in some cases, though he prefers to start. Oswalt, 35, posted a 5.80 ERA in 17 appearances last season with the Rangers but had a nice 59/11 K/BB ratio over 59 frames.

Anthony DeSclafani (oblique) felt discomfort in his side during Friday's rehab start for Low-A Dayton.

He reported feeling a "sensation" in his injured oblique after throwing 77 pitches over five innings. "We’re really doing everything we can to avoid a setback," said manager Bryan Price. "He was good until the last inning or so, and then it was an issue." DeSclafani was expected to join the Reds for his next start but that seems unlikely now.

Raisel Iglesias is in danger of missing Sunday's start against the Pirates with a right shoulder injury.

Iglesias said he felt a "pinch" on Friday and was examined by team doctors. This could be a recurrence of the shoulder fatigue that plagued him late last season. Louisville right-hander Tim Adleman was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday in case the Reds need him to fill in on Sunday. Iglesias' first five starts have yielded mixed results. His 3.49 ERA is impressive but opponents are hitting .296 against him with four homers in 115 at-bats. Fantasy owners should prepare to be without him on Sunday.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

He'll get the day off after laboring through a dismal 0-for-4 showing on Friday. Puig has watched his average fall from .347 to .250 over his last 10 games. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at right field and bat sixth.

Jordan Zimmermann continued his domination of the American League on Saturday, improviing to 5-0 on the season with seven innings of one-run ball against the Twins.

Zimmermann scattered six hits on the afternoon and punched out seven without issuing a free pass. The only damage against him on the afternoon came on a solo home run off the bat of Byung-ho Park in the fourth inning. He now boasts a tremendous 0.55 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 23/7 K/BB ratio over 33 innings on the season. He'll look to continue his impressive run when he takes the hill against the Rangers at home on Friday.

Devin Mesoraco remains out of the Reds starting lineup on Saturday.

It sounds as though Reds manager Bryan Price wanted to give his young backstop a few days off to clear his head after starting the season in a .140/.218/.160 funk with only one RBI. Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate again on Saturday and batting seventh for the Reds against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates.
Apr 30 - 2:35 PM

Joe Panik (groin) is not in the Giants starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Mets.

Panik suffered a minor groin injury during the ninth inning of Friday's game and will be held out on Saturday as a precautionary measure. Kelby Tomlinson will start in his place and bat eight against opposing right-hander Jacob deGrom.

Saturday's contest between the Cubs and Braves was postponed due to rain.

No makeup date has been announced. Make sure to avoid both of these clubs when making your DFS lineups for the early slate on Saturday.

Adam Conley fired 7 2/3 no-hit innings in Friday’s 6-3 win over the Brewers.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly made the bold call to pull Conley after 116 pitches. Jonathan Lucroy eventually broke up the no-hitter with a one-out single off Jose Urena in the bottom of the ninth. While Conley didn’t get a chance to finish off the no-hitter, it was still a very encouraging outing. The southpaw walked four and struck out seven while inducing 14 swinging strikes. While he’s been a bit up and down in the early part of the season, he continues to show why he deserves consideration in mixed fantasy leagues. Conley lines up for a start against the Diamondbacks at home next week.

Justin Bour had a monster night Friday against the Brewers, going 3-for-4 with two home runs and a career-high five RBI.

Bour slugged a three-run homer in the first inning before adding an RBI double in the third inning and a solo homer in the sixth. This was his second career multi-homer again. The 27-year-old entered the day with one home run through his first 70 plate appearances. Perhaps this will finally get him going.
Apr 30 - 12:52 AM

Stephen Strasburg gave up two runs over seven innings and struck out nine in a 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Strasburg gave up both runs in the first inning, but really settled down from there. He walked just one batter and notched seven strikeouts in the span of eight batters at one point. After finishing last season strong, the impending free agent is 4-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 40/8 K/BB ratio in 36 innings through his first five starts this season. He’ll attempt to keep it going next week against the Royals on the road.
Apr 30 - 12:16 AM

Michael Fulmer defeated the Twins in his Major League debut on Friday, allowing two runs on seven hits over his five innings of work.

The 23-year-old right-hander struck out four and walked one in the ballgame. He cruised through the first three innings unscathed, but allowed the Twins to scratch out single runs in the fourth and fifth innings. He definitely held his own in place of the injured Shane Greene though and could secure a rotation spot for the remainder of the season if he continues to pitch well, making him an interesting target in deeper mixed leagues. He'll take on the Indians his next time out in Cleveland on Thursday.
