R.A Dickey allowed four runs (three earned) on nine hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over 7.2 innings against the Reds on Sunday.
Dickey suffered his second consecutive loss on Sunday, having now allowed seven runs over his last two stats. Now sitting 6-6 with a 4.04 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, Dickey is still work owning in all but the shallowest of leagues, although he needs to work on both his home runs allowed (12 HR) and walks (42 BB) before being labeled a must-start every time he takes the mound. He will look to bounce back when he takes on the White Sox on Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Update: Carlos Peguero will be on Boston's major league roster.
With the Red Sox dealing with injuries in their outfield, they are going to give Peguero a chance. The Rangers cut ties with him after he struck out in just under 43-percent of the times he came to the plate in the first 30 games of the season. He is one of those guys who has incredible raw power, but he is boom-or-bust and is going to be a drain on your batting average. However, no playing time is guaranteed, so he should be left off most rosters. Analysis: Colby Conway
Colts signed first-round wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.
Dorsett is known for his excellent speed that he showcased while at the University of Miami. The Indy receiving core is pretty packed, so Dorsett’s expectations for his rookie year should be held in check. Last season for the Hurricanes, he caught 36 passes for 871 yards and 10 touchdowns. He would need an injury or two to become seriously fantasy relevant, seeing that he will be no higher than their number four receiver at the start of this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
