DFS MLB Pitching Coach: May 29

Jameis Winston has reportedly dropped "a lot" of weight this offseason as he prepares for his second season.

Winston wasn't exactly in Eddie Lacy territory, but if he and the team decided he needed to lose "a lot" of weight, it is nice to see he is at least taking that part of his preparation seriously. Quarterback is very deep this season. so there is no reason to reach for Winston for fantasy, but Winston appears poised to take another step forward next season.

Braves general manager John Coppolella told reporters he is done trading players like Julio Teheran for prospects.

The Braves have Teheran under contract through 2019, and while it may make some sense to trade Teheran, they certainly do not have to. They could always trade him in 2017 or 2018 if it appears they are not contending.

Rougned Odor (suspension) will work out pregame only at Double-A Frisco while team is in Cleveland and the Rangers have yet to decide if he'll go to Arizona.

It seems extremely unlikely that it will matter at all how Odor spends his time during his suspension. As soon as he is reinstated, he should be right back in your lineup.

Giancarlo Stanton (side) will take batting practice on Sunday and if all goes well, he may return for upcoming Pirates series.

The Marlins have four games against Pittsburgh starting Monday, so this means Stanton might be activated in by Thursday. Considering how poorly Stanton has hit so far this season, you should probably bench Stanton in weekly leagues.

Nick Vincent likely won't be available Sunday after a heavy workload Saturday night.

Vincent threw 49 pitches in two innings Saturday and took the loss. With Vincent likely out, Joaquin Benoit and Joel Peralta will likely be the right-handed setup men Sunday for the Mariners.

Luis Severino will throw 50 to 60 pitches Sunday night for Single-A Tampa at Brevard County.

Depending on how the Yankees want to use him, Severino will likely get at least one more rehab start before he is activated. Severino isn't guaranteed a rotation spot when he returns, and the Yankees could go to a six-man rotation to accommodate Severino.

Orioles scratched T.J. McFarland from his minor league start.

McFarland provides valuable depth as both a starter and reliever, so the Orioles could be in trouble if McFarland has suffered a significant setback. McFarland has a 4.73 ERA in 13 1/3 big league innings this season.

Brock Holt is not close to playing yet. He's only doing conditioning work as he returns from a concussion.

Holt will likely have to do some hitting and fielding before he heads out on a rehab assignment. If Blake Swihart starts to hit, the Red Sox may not even have room in their lineup for Holt when he is back, so Holt probably isn't worth stashing in most leagues.
