DeVante Parker Headshot

DeVante Parker (hamstring) is listed as day-to-day and coach Adam Gase says Parker needs to start taking care of his body better.

Parker was the Dolphins 1st round pick last year but started the year off with lingering injuries and appeared in just 14 games, making 26 catches for 494 yards. He is an explosive talent and coupled with Jarvis Landry would make the Dolphins passing attack pretty dangerous.

Rich Hill Headshot

Rich Hill will pitch Game 2 Wednesday against the Rockies.

Hill made is long awaited debut with the Dodgers last week and tossed six shutout innings against the Giants. He will find a difficult test in the Rockies on Wednesday however they are very strikeout prone and Hills ability to miss bats could neutralize the batters advantage that Coors field presents.

Ross Stripling Headshot

Ross Stripling will pitch Game 1 Wednesday against the Rockies.

Stripling is 3-5 with a 4.13 ERA over 16 games (12 starts) this season for the Dodgers. Coors field is far from a favorable spot for him to be pitching in so fantasy owners would be wise to avoid his start on Wednesday.

Michael Brantley Headshot

Michael Brantley expects to wear a sling for six more weeks as he recovers from his second surgery.

This season has been a lost cause for Brantley who began the year on the disabled list and only appeared in 11 games before landing back on the disabled list. Brantley is expected to make a fully recovery in about four months according to reports following his surgery.

Andrew Benintendi Headshot

Andrew Benintendi has been fitted for a brace for his sprained left knee.

Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters it will take a few weeks for the brace to be made for Benintendi but it will allow for him to begin his rehab. There is still no timetable for his return to the Red Sox lineup which is tough for fantasy owners.

Peter Bourjos Headshot

Peter Bourjos missed his second straight game Tuesday after getting hit in the left wrist by a pitch Sunday.

Bourjos is not much of a fantasy contributor so while his absence from the lineup is tough for the Phillies it should have no relevance to fantasy rosters. On the year he is hitting .250 with 36 runs, four home runs and 21 RBI.

Tanner Scheppers Headshot

Tanner Scheppers threw a scoreless inning Tuesday for Triple-A Round Rock.

Scheppers is working his way back from off-season knee surgery and is nearing a return to the Rangers bullpen. His call-up to the Rangers will likely come when rosters expand on Friday.

Cameron Maybin Headshot

Cameron Maybin (thumb) had an MRI that showed no major damage.

Maybin has been playing through a hand contusion that has caused some discomfort but with his MRI coming back relatively clean this is certainly good news for his fantasy owners. On the year Maybin is hitting .329 with 46 runs, three home runs, 36 RBI and 14 stolen bases over 70 games in his first season with the Tigers.

Melky Cabrera Headshot

Melky Cabrera left Tuesday's game due to an illness.

Cabrera left Tuesday's game in the 7th inning and now we know why. Fantasy owners should consider him day-to-day with this illness and be thankful that it was not some sort of long term injury.
