Spencer Hawes (right knee sprain) is officially out for Sunday's game against the Heat.

Hawes is going to miss at least a week with right MCL sprain. He is a back up player at best so do not fret overly about his absence from the lineup.

Nicolas Batum (left foot strain) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Heat.

The questionable tag makes him a risky start. He did miss games 3 and 4 with a left ankle strain, so his availability is up in the air. Keep an eye on the injury report before considering him in daily leagues.

Joe Panik has mild groin strain and will be out a couple days.

Ugh, that is horrible news for his fantasy owners. Groin injuries can linger, and while this is being described as a minor strain, look for more information to come out over the next few days.

Carlos Gomez is dealing with soreness in his rib and will miss a few days.

That is a bit of good news for his owners, as he has been putting up awful results in April. Perhaps the injury is why he is not effective, once again.

Russell Martin is not in Saturday's starting lineup.

Josh Thole will catch on Saturday. Martin has not been a productive catcher this season, and until he gets things going, you should consider sitting him in seasonal leagues and not putting him in your daily lineups

Giants have called up Vin Mazzaro from Triple-A Sacramento.

Mike Broadway was sent to the minors on Saturday, opening a slot for Mazzaro. He is at best a middle inning reliever for the Giants. You can safely ignore him on the wire.

Corey Dickerson is not in Saturday's starting lineup.

Dickerson will hit the pine as he does not fare well against southpaws. With J.A. Happ on the mound Saturday, Steven Souza will replace Dickerson in the Rays' lineup at DH.

Pirates have optioned Rob Scahill to Triple-A-Indianapolis.

With the team activating Jared Hughes on Saturday, Scahill is getting sent out to Triple-A. Scahill was not effective at the major league level and will head back to minor to await a future call up.

Pirates have activated Jared Hughes from the 15-day disabled list.

Hughes has been dealing with a lat injury, but will now be joining the Pirates bullpen. He is noting exciting in terms of fantasy production, being more a real life asset than a guy you want to target off the waiver wire.

Jesse Hahn was promoted from Triple-A Nashville to be Saturday's starting pitcher.

Hahn gets the start on Saturday, replacing Andrew Triggs on the roster. He has posted a fine 2.04 ERA with 13 Ks in the minors so far, and thus is a decent option for a spot start.
