Omar Infante received a cortisone shot for elbow on Tuesday. He says he won't throw again until the weekend.
Infante has time to get ready for the start of the year, but his body is betraying him at the moment. More than capable of hitting at least .280, Infante has no upside and no heat behind his name so you can draft him in the reserve rounds if you need help up the middle.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
He is slated to be the starting second baseman for the Royals. He had 54 runs, 10 HR, 51 RBI, 5 SB, and .318/.345/.450. He should only be drafted in deep mixed leagues and AL only leagues.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Indians recalled P Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus.
Adams will take the roster spot of Scott Atchison, who was placed on the disabled list on Thursday. The 28-year-old reliever owns a 5.40 ERA at Triple-A Columbus, but has shown the ability to rack up strikeouts as evident by his 14.0 K/9 this year. The Indians are likely to use him in the middle innings. Analysis: David Kerr
Indians placed Carlos Santana on the paternity list.
Santana is going to miss a few days while on the paternity list, so be sure to remove him from your fantasy lineup. He can miss up to three days, though it is unknown whether he will use the allotted amount of time. Jerry Sands was called up to take Santana's place on the Indians roster. Analysis: David Kerr
Leonys Martin is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Thursday.
Martin is struggling across the board this season to the tune of a .215 average, so he will take a seat against the Red Sox on Thursday night. It's worth noting that Martin is actually hitting lefties (.245) better than righties (.198), but the team feels as though batting Delino DeShields Jr. in the leadoff spot against a lefty will benefit them overall. Martin will be back in the lineup over the weekend. Analysis: David Kerr
White Sox recalled RHP Chris Beck from Triple-A Charlotte.
As is often the case with a doubleheader, the White Sox needed a spot start, so they are giving the ball to Chris Beck. The 24-year-old prospect doesn't have elite minor league numbers and actually has posted a paltry 5.5 K/9 rate over four minor league seasons. Beck will face off against Mike Wright on Thursday night, so this should be a relatively high scoring game for those of you that are looking to stack in DFS games. Analysis: David Kerr
