Fantasy Player Updates & News

Pirates have called up infielder Brent Morel from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Well, he certainly didn't warrant the call-up with glittering statistics. Morel was hitting a pedestrian-check that- dismal .215/.279/.312 at Indianapolis.ANALYST:

Manager Walt Weiss says that if game is postponed, LHP Tyler Matzek would still start on Wednesday.

After Monday's game versus the Diamondbacks was postponed due to poor weather, it seems as if Tuesday's scheduled contest may go the same way. Analysis: Nate Miller

Cory Spangenberg is leading off on Tuesday for the first time this season.

With Jedd Gyorko struggling mightily, Spangenberg has been receiving more and more time at second base. The Padres will battle Giants' righty Ryan Vogelsong on Tuesday night. Analysis: Nate Miller

Manager Terry Francona said Michael Bourn will be sitting vs. lefties for the time being.

Bourn was also out of the Indians' starting lineup this past Saturday, as the speedy leadoff man has been dealing with a stiff neck lately. It might be worth mentioning that Bourn is just 7-for-37 against left-handed pitching this season, which does not bode well for Tuesday's matchup versus Royals' southpaw Jason Vargas. Analysis: Nate Miller

Donnie Veal was designated for assignment on Tuesday.

Veal made three appearances out of the Braves' bullpen this past week, but gave up runs each time out and allowed two homers across 3 1/3 innings. Analysis: Nate Miller

Brad Miller is not in the Mariners' starting lineup on Tuesday.

Miller is just 2-of-18 at the plate over his last six games and will be out of the Mariners' starting lineup for the second consecutive day. Chris Taylor will be at shortstop and bat ninth for the Mariners. Analysis: Nate Miller

Cubs have recalled pitcher James Russell.

Russell spent his first 4 1/2 big-league seasons with the Cubs before being traded to the Braves at the deadline last year. The 29-year-old lefty has allowed just four hits while striking out 12 across 9 2/3 scoreless innings at Triple-A Iowa. Analysis: Nate Miller

Ray’s Ramblings: Baseball Bums

A bum is a lazy or shiftless person. There certainly seem to be a lot of major league players – like Mesoraco and Rendon – that fit that bill through a month of action.
