Fantasy Baseball Prospect Report: Call 'Em Up
David Kerr

Ryan Tannehill is excited about Adam Gase's new offense and about his authority to audible on the field.

Infamously, Tannehill wasn't allowed to audible in Bill Lazor's offense. "In this offense, you're not really locked in on what the play call is," Gase said. "For (Tannehill) to have the ability to know what to get to — that kind of flexibility — being able to do that as a quarterback is very valuable." Gase went on to say Tannehill's intelligence is "off the charts." Coming off a season where he revived Jay Cutler's career, Gase has the capability to put Tannehill's in motion. Tannehill finished with an 88.7 QBRat, 4,208 Pass Yds, 24 TD Pass and 12 Int last season.

Koa Misi was involved in a fight outside of a Fort Lauderdale night club early Sunday morning.

Misi allegedly struck someone in the head before struggling to be subdued by police. He was released without being arrested after the alleged victim declined to press charges. It's a silly, regrettable incident, but it doesn't sound like much in the way of legal problems is going to come from it. Misi had 78 tackles last season in 13 games for Miami.

Jets TE Jace Amaro is expecting a big year after his shoulder injury in 2015.

The Jets' tight end depth is in a sorry state. Along with Amaro, Kellen Davis and Zach Sudfeld round out the top three. The Jets received a league-low 10 catches from their tight ends last season. It's possible they simply don't plan on using the position, instead opting for an extra tackle in blocking situations or using for receivers. Amaro missed all of 2015 with a torn labrum.

Mario Hollands has had his rehab assignment moved to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Hollands is coming back from Tommy John surgery, so his stops on his rehab assignment have been longer than that of the typical rehabbing pitcher. This should be the final stop for him before joining the big league bullpen early next week. He hasn't pitched at the major league level since 2014 in where he finished with a 4.40 ERA in 47 innings pitched for the Phillies.

Cody Asche has had his rehab assignment moved to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The stat sheet says one thing, Cody Asche another. “I’m close,” the Phillies’ once (and possibly future) leftfielder said after going hitless in four at-bats in a rehab assignment game for Double A Reading on Thursday morning. “I’m close, for sure.” Asche, recovering from a strained left oblique muscle, is just 2 for 16 in four games at Reading, after going 3 for 18 in five games at Single A Clearwater. But not to worry, he said. There are just “a couple little things” he needs to shore up at the plate, things that have led to “not-so-favorable results,” before he is ready to return to the major leagues. “But I’m confident,” he said. “They’re easy fixes.” Asche, a little over a month away from his 26th birthday, said he feels healthy, that he just needs to get his timing back and just needs to face more “good quality pitching.” Where he will get that opportunity is now clear. Immediately after beating Erie, 7-4, in Thursday’s matinee, Reading headed to New Hampshire to begin a road trip. Asche was not expected to accompany the Fightin Phils. Meanwhile, Triple-A Lehigh Valley begins a homestand Friday and that is where Asche will be expected to suit up next. Double-A Reading manager Dusty Wathan did address Asche’s situation after he played his first game at Reading on Sunday. “It’s like his spring training,” the manager told reporters. “He’s trying to get himself back, get himself comfortable in left field, get himself comfortable at the plate and back into baseball shape.” Asche, the Phillies’ fourth-round pick in 2011, hit .252 with 10 homers and 46 RBIs in 121 games at third base in 2014. Last year he began the season at that position before making the transition to left, in the wake of Maikel Franco’s emergence. But when Franco broke a wrist late in the year, Asche returned to his natural position. Overall he hit .245 with 12 homers and 39 RBIs in 129 games. Five of his homers came in his last 18 games.

DeAndre Levy (hip) was able to hit the blocking sled and do 11-on-11 work at Lions OTAs this week.

Linebacker Levy was back on the field Thursday, participating almost fully in the Detroit Lions' organized team activities after missing all but a half of one game of last season with a hip injury. He was running around, hitting sleds and even participating in some team drills, though there is no hitting allowed in OTAs. "That's the next step," Levy said. He was back on the field for OTAs Thursday after missing all but one half of one game of last season with a hip injury. Levy said he is still rehabbing but expects to be cleared to fully hit by the time training camp begins and should be ready for the season opener against Indianapolis on Sept. 11. After being one of the leading tacklers in the league in 2014 with 151 and signing a four-year, $33 million extension in training camp last season, he couldn't play in 2015, had surgery and spent the rest of the time trying to get back to his old form. He said he had no concerns about how his body will hold up and that he is ready to go. He said the biggest thing is getting reps again.
