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
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
