General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said sending Domonic Brown to the minors is not an option at this time.

Whether he's working out the kinks in the minors or in Triple-A is irrelevant. There should be no reason to not let him do it in the majors if the Phillies are basically willing to concede an out whenever he's up. We're not sure at what point the team will pack in the idea of Brown being an effective outfielder, but it's obviously not soon.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Chris Colabello was 2-for-4 with a run, home run and two RBI on Saturday.

Chris Colabello continues to have an under the radar season with the Blue Jays. With two more hits including his seventh home run on Saturday, Colabello is now hitting .335 with 31 RBI in 51 games for Toronto. Although he is a .254 career hitter, Colabello has flourished this year but is due for some regression in his average but can continue to contribute in fantasy. Analysis: Greg Jewett

R.A. Dickey pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up 11 hits, five earned runs, walked two and struck out one in his loss on Saturday to the Tigers.

R.A. Dickey is having a hard time regaining his form this year. On Saturday, Dickey gave up five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings and 11 hits against Detroit. Dickey is now 0-6 in his last eight road starts and his propensity to give up walks is a culprit. His ERA is now at 5.02 with a 5.22 FIP. Dickey will make his next start in Chicago against the White Sox.  Analysis: Greg Jewett

Justin Miller has been optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Miller has actually been solid out of the pen for the Rockies this season, but with John Axford now back Colorado had to clear a spot in the bullpen. It would not be surprising to see Miller back in the big leagues soon.  Analysis: Ben Diamond

Kevin Durant says he will be ready for Thunder training camp.

Durant had his season detailed due to foot injuries, beginning the season injured and ending the season out as well, so it would not be surprising to see the Thunder taking it very slowly with their best player. Luckily, he should be good to go for the start of the season, as well as for training camp.  Analysis: Ben Diamond

Clippers expected to have discussions with center JaVale McGee.

With the Clippers trying to find a replacement for DeAndre Jordan, it is not surprising to see the team contacting McGee as a possible signing. Right now the Clippers appear to be in the front running to sign the center. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Trevor May has been moved to the Twins' bullpen.

May is probably not going to permamently end up in the bullpen, but for now he will try to stabilize his mechanics and performance out of the bullpen for the Twins.  Analysis: Ben Diamond

Jonathan Schoop is likely to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

Schoop appears to have fully recovered from a knee injury that he suffered early this season, and should be back in the lineup on Sunday. He is likely to be the Orioles starting second baseman. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Orioles have optioned INF Ryan Flaherty to Triple-A Norfolk.

Flaherty is not needed on the major league roster now, as Jonathan Schoop is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday and will become the Orioles' starting second baseman. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Tuffy Gosewisch has been transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Gosewisch is likely out for the season with a knee injury, and he will be put on the 60-day DL, with Oscar Hernandez being activated from the DL to assume duties as the Diamondbacks backup catcher. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Update: Kevin Gausman will start Tuesday at Minnesota.

Gausman is replacing Bud Norris's spot in the major league rotation after starting the year in the bullpen before being injured. He has a ton of upside and is a solid flyer in fantasy leagues, as he should be able to keep his rotation spot. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Matt Joyce is not in the Angels' starting lineup on Saturday.

Joyce has started the past three games, but will sit on Saturday with Dan Robertson playing left field and hitting ninth in the order. Analysis: Ben Diamond
