Jeff Samardzija will start on Saturday and Scott Kazmir on Sunday. 

Just a minor tweak of the rotation here as the A's give Kazmir, who got pummeled in his last start, an extra day of rest. Nothing fantasy-wise is really affected here.

Well, he's eligible to come off the 7-day DL on Friday barring any setbacks.Not that we're anticipating any, but when it comes to concussions, you just never know how a guy is going to react.

Shin- Soo Choo will have elbow surgery Friday to remove bone spur.

Choo's season was cut short due to the problems stemming from the elbow issue. Not that it was such a great season anyway as an ankle injury hindered his performance as well. He joins a long line of Texas Rangers who have disappointed fantasy owners this year.

Eric Hosmer (hand) is taking batting practice on Thursday. He could go on rehab assignment this weekend.

Hosmer was taking swings with the bat Wednesday and was told that if all went well with his batting practice session, that he could get to his rehab assignment overthe weekend and potentially join the team next week. When he returns, the Royals will have their hands full finding at-bats for him, Josh Willingham and Billy Butler.

Dodgers sent RHP Victor Arano to the Phillies as the second of two players to be named in trade for RHP Roberto Hernandez.

He's just 19-years old and has posted a 4.08 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 86 innings at Low-A Great Lakes. He's a long, long way off from reaching the majors, so really a non-factor at this time. With an ERA like that in Low-A, his advancement through any system seems like it's going to be an uphill climb. What do you want? It was for Roberto Hernandez for crying out loud.

Kyle Lobstein could start on Tuesday.

Lobstein gave up three runs on four hits and four walks over 5.2 innings the last time he took the mound for the Tigers. He certainly wasn't awful, but he wasn't all that great either. He'll need to maintain his command a little better if he's going to be a successful big-league pitcher, but he's obviously got something going on or the Tigers would have bumped him. Or would they? That Anibal Sanchez injury is looming large over Motown.

Update: Robbie Grossman is out of the lineup with ankle soreness. He tweaked his ankle on his single late last night.

Ity doesn't sound like anything too serious, but again, since he's been playing regularly since August 7, the rest will do him good. Consider him day-to-day and check back with the lineups over the weekend for his return.
