According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post Roy Oswalt will likely start for the Rockies Thursday in Washington.
Oswalt's made five minor league appearances since signing with the Rockies. He's posted a 2.16 ERA and 0.930 WHIP over 33 1/3 innings. Oswalt struggled during his time with the Rangers last season, getting hit hard to the tune of a 5.80 ERA over 17 appearances -- including nine starts.ANALYST:
Oswalt is a spot starter, but on the road at Washington is a good spot. He could be a nice value in daily leagues, as well.ANALYST:
Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced on Monday.
The Lions will play the Thursday game again this week, so while they've had a full seven days to prepare, Megatron won't take his usual day off from practice. That has to be encouraging to plenty of fantasy owners as he and Matthew Stafford would like to build off such a strong Thanksgiving performance. Analysis: Howard Bender
Reds signed C Dayan Diaz to a minor league contract.
Diaz climbed up from High-A to Triple-A over two seasons in the Red Sox system and finished last year with a 1.89 ERA and 7.74 K/9 over 57 innings of relief at the highest point. He could find a place in the Reds bullpen, though he could be better suited as one of those guys who rides the shuttle between Louisville and Cincinati all year. Analysis: Howard Bender
