2016 NBA Draft Recap: Reaction and Analysis
Brett Squires
LATEST PLAYER ALARMS View All

Brett Cecil will continue his rehab at Triple-A Buffalo.

The veteran has pitched well so far in his rehab, and figures to get a few more appearances before joining the Jays. Cecil did not pitch well before the injury, posting a 5.94 ERA and a 1.94 WHIP, but was able to post five holds. Even in leagues where holds are counted, his other numbers make him hard to add. If he is able to slot in the bullpen, and lower his ratios, then he could be relevant in holds leagues.

Tarvaris Jackson has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after reportedly pulling a gun on his wife Friday.

Not much to say on this one. Jackson was looking to compete for the backup job to Russell Wilson, but that looks like a long shot, as the Seahawks will likely cut him after this incident. By the looks of the charges, football appears to be the least of his worries.

Andrew Cashner (neck) threw a bullpen session on Friday.

Cashner still figures to be a few weeks away from joining he teams' rotation again, despite the progress he has made. He will need to get he arm stretched out before he returns to the team. Before the injury, the veteran posted a 4.75 ERA in 53 innings. It is hard to make a case for him to be owned in most formats.

Jon Gray (shoulder) threw a 14-pitch bullpen session Friday and said he's ready to go for Monday.

At one point this year, Gray was a viable option away from Coors, but has lost that distinction also. His ERA at home is 5.02 at Coors, and has steadily risen to 4.65 everywhere else. Batters are still only hitting .216 against him on the road, but as the ERA signifies, they have made the hits count. It is hard to recommend him in most formats outside NL only, especially when you can only feel good about starting him in his road starts anyway.

Astros plan to promote top prospect A.J. Reed.

The youngster had cooled a bit at Triple-A, but has hit .372 in his last ten games, with three homers. It was not a question of if, but when, with Reed as Marwin Gonzalez has gotten the majority of starts at first base. It is possible that Reed could sit against left handers until he proves he can hit them, but with his power bat, he is an add in almost every format.

Derrick Rose wants the Knicks to sign Joakim Noah this offseason.

Noah will figure to be a hot commodity in the free agent market this summer. The veteran big would be a nice fit with the Knicks, who just lost Robin Lopez in the Derrick Rose trade. Noah remains a solid option in fantasy as long as he is healthy no matter where he lands for 2016-'17.

Trevor May (back) will begin a rehab assignment on Monday with Triple-A Rochester.

Once looked at as the closer in waiting, May's shaky outings in a set-up role probably knocked him out of that role upon his return. Unless be pitches better than the 6.08 ERA and the 1.50 WHIP, he has little fantasy value. If you are stashing him, it is worth seeing exactly what his role will be upon his return, but if he does not get holds or saves chances, he offers little in most formats.

Nick Tropeano has been optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake.

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.

Rich Hill threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Friday and will have a rehab start on Monday.

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.
