Fantasy Player Updates & News

Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander will pitch Tuesday against the White Sox. Verlander was set to pitch Sunday, but the game against the Twins was postponed by rain.

As one of the best pitchers in the game, this should make little difference to his performance on Tuesday. It has been a bumpy April for the Tigers rotation, but the team still holds a 12-9 record. When the weather improves, so should results from Detroit starting pitchers.ANALYST: David Kerr

Michael Morse is not in the Marlins starting lineup on Friday.

Morse is being benched in favor of Justin Bour. Morse is hitting a dismal .206/.265/.278 with just two home runs and is looking like one of the offseason's worst signings. Analysis: Spencer Silva

Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics lineup on Friday.

Semien was reportedly doing extra work with new infield coach Ron Washington before the game. Andy Parrino will take his place in the lineup against Chris Archer.  Analysis: Spencer Silva

Christian Yelich is not in the Marlins lineup on Friday.

Yelich has been in a funk since being activated from the disabled list earlier this month, slashing just .159/.260/.250. Ichiro, who could make for a nice DFS play, will make the start in his place. Analysis: Spencer Silva

Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak says next season will be Kobe Bryant's last with the Lakers.

Considering Kobe said that he was set to retire anyway this isn't some big revelation for Kupchak nor is he endowing us with any sort of breaking news here. Kobe's effectiveness on the court has massively diminished and his knee issues continue to hinder his performance. We're actually a little surprised he's even going back to the well one more time. Fantasy owners should not. Analysis: Howard Bender
