Manny Machado's five-game suspension has been upheld by Major League Baseball, and he will begin serving it Monday night.
Take him out of your lineup this week and find yourself an adequate stop gap. The Orioles play a full slate of seven games this week so he'll be available again Saturday. Ryan Flaherty will likely fill in for him, but just isn't a strong fantasy play.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
