Update: Josh Hamilton (thumb) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Friday.
With his rehab assignment starting on Friday, Hamilton would be on track to return to the Angels lineup as early as the end of next week. Fantasy owners will want to keep a close eye on this situation over the next few days to ensure that his timetable is still on track as he battles back from a thumb injury. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
