Mark Teixeira (back) remains out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Saturday.

This shouldn't come as a surprise as manager Joe Girardi spoke with the media Friday and reiterated that Teixeira wouldn't be an option until Monday. His back is still problematic and the team is still deciding whether or not he is going to need yet another DL stint. Brian McCann continues to play first base in his absence.

Brandon Morrow is heading to Florida on Sunday to continue his rehab. He is hopeful to return before the end of August. 

Whether Morrow returns or not should be irrelevant to fantasy owners. Forget about the hype he once had. It's gone. He's not even remotely the same pitcher he once was when scouts and fantasy experts were drooling years ago. He's a huge injury risk, he's inconsistent on the mound, and numbers have been declining virtually every single year. Let someone else enjoy this nightmare. You've got much better options out there.

The Red Sox are close to trading starting pitcher Jake Peavy to an unknown National League team.

While a move back to the national League would theoretically help Peavy's value, keep in mind that we are dealing with a player whose peripherals are all declining and has experienced a loss of velocity. Even the prospect of facing a pitcher as opposed to a DH is negated by how poorly he has pitched this year. And then, of course, there's the injury history. Peavy may have a one or two start resurgence with a move to the NL and a favorable change of scenery, but nothing that would be sustainable. He is still a player in decline and a serious risk to your fantasy ratios.

Ubaldo Jimenez tossed a two-inning simulated game Friday and  is set to begin a rehab assignment next week.

Jimenez is now one step closer to making his return to the Orioles starting rotation, although when he does that doesn't mean he should instantly become a fantasy asset. His first year with the Orioles hasn't gone as planned, sitting on a 3-8 record with a 4.52 ERA and 1.54 WHIP through 18 starts, so outside of AL-only leagues prospective owners should take a wait-and see approach once activated from the disabled list, which will come in early August.

Nolan Arenado was removed from Friday's game after he failed to run hard to first on a grounder to the mound in the fourth inning. 

There is no excuse for not hustling, no matter how good of a player you may be. It has yet to be determined if Arenado will miss any more time after this recent disciplinary action, but at least we now know he did not suffer an undisclosed injury.

Feliz Hernandez settled for a no-decision despite allowing just one run on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 batters in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Orioles. 

Hernandez continues his incredible season on Friday night, despite failing to pick up his 12th win along the way. He is now 11-2 with a 1.99 ERA and 0.89 WHIP through 22 starts, while owning an unreal 173:29 K:BB rate over 158.1 innings. The Mariners Ace is clearly the best pitcher in the American league at this moment and as long as he can maintain his 1.5 BB/9 and continue to limit the long ball (6 HR allowed) we are in for a treat in the second half. He will look to keep the ball rolling when he takes on the Indians on Wednesday.
