Whitley is recovering from TJS and last pitched for the Yankees in 2015. He was claimed off waiver by the Rays in November. He profiles as a middle relief bullpen arm, and has little fantasy value.

Braves have recalled Ryan Weber from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Weber was shelled in three appearances this season out of the Braves bullpen, allowing nine earned runs over 7.2 innings. At Triple-A this season he has been much better, going 0-2 with a 2.81 ERA over 11 appearances.
With the trade of Jason Grilli to the Blue Jays, there was an open slot on the roster which Weber will fill for the nonce. He figures to step in as a middle reliever for the Braves out the pen, and with just limited strikeout potential and a terrible MLB stat line in his previous 36 innings, do not get overly excited about his return to the Braves pitching staff for fantasy purposes.

Andrelton Simmons (thumb) took batting practice and fielded grounders on Tuesday.

Simmons is working his way back from a torn ligament in his thumb. He is expected to return to the Angels lineup by the end of June however there is little fantasy upside here with Simmons.
A move in the right direction for the Angels. His timetable to return to the lineup is still late June, but the good signs with the BP and fielding drills hints he may be back sooner than later. The team could use his defensive skills at short, but his bat has not been a selling point for him this season.

Bryce Harper (knee) could be out of the Nationals' starting lineup until Friday.

Harper was hit in the knee during Monday's game so it's a bit discouraging to hear that this knee contusion could keep him out of the lineup for the next few days. Harper owners will want to monitor this situation as it continues to develop.
