Phillies optioned RHP Michael Stutes to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Stutes was competing for the final spot in the Phillies' bullpen, but will be demoted in favor of Phillippe Aumont. The move comes as no surprise after Stutes posted a 7.36 ERA this spring.

Cole Hamels (biceps) has been cleared to join the Phillies' rotation Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Hamels threw seven innings of one-run ball Thursday at High-A Clearwater, wrapping up his minor league rehab assignment with a 2.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 17 total frames. The Dodgers present a tough first matchup, but Hamels should be a fantasy ace going forward.

Chase Headley is back in the Padres' starting lineup on Saturday night against the Giants.

Headley has been limited to pinch-hitting duties for much of this week because of a mild right biceps strain. He is batting fifth and playing third base Saturday.

Jenrry Mejia (blister) has been cleared to start Monday in the Mets' series-opener against the Cardinals.

Mejia made it through a bullpen session Saturday without being bothered by the blister on his right middle finger. The 24-year-old is 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA in three starts this year, but St. Louis is a tough fantasy matchup.

Desmond Jennings will be limited to pinch-hitting duties on Saturday and Sunday due to groin discomfort.

Jennings is aiming to return to the Rays' starting lineup for Tuesday's series-opener against the Twins. He has a cool .825 OPS in 17 games this season.

Max Scherzer picked up his first victory of the 2014 season on Saturday, surrendering one run on three hits over seven strong innings against the Angels.

The reigning American League Cy Young winner punched out nine while walking just two in the game. The only damage against him came on a leadoff home run by J.B. Shuck, but he was able to settle in nicely and dominate the rest of the afternoon. He’ll carry a 2.33 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 34/7 K/BB ratio into Thursday’s home start against the White Sox.

Carlos Beltran (shoulder, wrist) is back in the Yankees' starting lineup on Saturday against the Rays.

Beltran sat out of Friday's game after flipping over a short outfield fence while trying to make a diving catch on Thursday. He has some soreness in his right shoulder and wrist, but an MRI was taken and came up clean.

Lance Lynn yielded one run over 5 2/3 innings in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Nationals.

Lynn left with the bases loaded and two out in the bottom of the sixth inning. Fortunately for him, Kevin Siegrest was able to get Danny Espinosa to fly out to center field to end the threat. Lynn gave up five hits and three walks while fanning five batters. Oh, and he also had an RBI double in a three-run second inning against Jordan Zimmermann. He's now 4-0 with a 3.42 ERA and 27/7 K/BB ratio through 23 2/3 innings. The Mets are on tap for next week.
Apr 19 - 4:10 PM

Bryce Harper was pulled from Saturday's loss to the Cardinals for not running out a groundball.

Nationals manager Matt Williams called it a "lack of hustle." Harper has been bothered for over a week by quad discomfort, so you can understand why he might be taking it easy on routine groundouts. This is a truly odd situation, but one that should ultimately blow over. "I respect what he did," Harper told the media.

Mark Buehrle continued his early season dominance, hurling seven shutout innings to defeat the Indians on Saturday afternoon.

Buehrle surrendered just four hits and three walks while striking out three. The 35-year-old southpaw is now a perfect 4-0 on the season with a stellar 0.64 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 19/5 K/BB ratio through his first 28 innings. He certainly won’t continue at this pace, and may not even prove to be mixed league relevant the remainder of the season, but he should continue to be started until he comes back to earth. He’ll look for his fifth victory when he takes on the Royals in Kansas City on Thursday.

Troy Tulowitzki had a huge day at the plate on Friday against the Phillies, going 3-for-3 with a home run, five RBI, a walk, and two runs scored.

Tulo terrorized the Phillies on Friday, delivering a three-run homer in the second inning, an RBI double in the fourth, and an RBI single in the sixth. Oh, and he also drew a 14-pitch walk against Jonathan Pettibone in a four-run first inning. The veteran shortstop is hitting .360 (18-for-50) with eight extra-base hits (two home runs), 11 RBI, and a .460 on-base percentage through 16 games. It goes without saying, but he's a fantasy monster when healthy.
Apr 19 - 1:28 AM

Jason Vargas spun seven scoreless frames in 5-0 win over the Twins on Friday night.

Vargas scattered seven hits (all singles) in the victory while walking just one batter and fanning four. The 31-year-old left-hander has been excellent so far this season, going at least seven innings in all four of his starts while allowing two runs or fewer in all of them. We don't expect the 1.24 ERA to last, but the Royals have to be thrilled with the early returns on their offseason investment.
