A bit of a head scratcher considering the state of the Angels rotation, and the numbers Tropeano was able to post prior to the injury. He is worth stashing in deeper leagues, since he does not figure to be down on the farm for long.
Good news for owners waiting for the veteran's services. The timetable appears to have Hill back with the big club in the coming week. Hill has been the lone bright spot on the A's rotation, and it will be interesting to see if he can keep up his solid numbers after his return to the rotation.
Roach will give the Mariners' bullpen some depth, but has posted less than spectacular numbers at Triple-A this season, and for his career. He offers nothing in fantasy.
LeBlanc will fill in for Taijuan Walker who is nursing a foot injury, and make the start Friday against the visiting Cardinals. LeBlanc is not a guy to target in any format at this point.
The M's made a series of moves to help out their pitching staff, and Aoki has been nursing a foot injury for a few days. When he is back to full strength, he figures to join the big club again. Aoki is manly a guy to target in AL only leagues, and in DFS when he has a favorable matchup.
The slugger is sitting after making 25 straight starts in an effort to get his legs back under him. All signs point to him making his way back into the lineup Saturday, but giving him another day of rest is not out of the question. On the season, Abreu has a line of .267/.326/446 with 11 home runs and 47 RBI. Todd Frazier is getting the start at first base and batting cleanup in Abreu's absence.
Tropeano has been a pleasant surprise for owners in deeper leagues, but has steadily seen his ERA climb to 3.25 on the season, but his WHIP remains very high at 1.55. Oddly enough, he was also optioned to Triple-A, but it would figure that he will not be down too long. If you own him, he is worth holding onto in deeper leagues.
After being re-acquired by the Mariners, the veteran got drilled for six earned runs in his debut, and has a 10.07 ERA on the season overall. He will look to get right in Triple-A in the hopes he will get called back up to the big club at some point this season.
Brentz, who will take the spot of Chris Young who went on the DL, was slashing .261/.313/.413 at Triple-A Pawtucket. He figures to be the fourth outfielder, and does not offer much outside of AL only leagues, and being an occasional DFS salary relief option.
