Alex Cobb allowed three runs on five hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings against the Tigers on Friday.
Cobb's struggles continued as he failed to pitch past the fifth inning for the third consecutive start and while he's won his last two outings, he's still given up 12 earned runs over 15 innings with just a 10:5 K:BB. Not to mention that he's thrown just three quality starts over his last eight outings. Fantasy owners had been expecting more from the 26-year-old right-hander, and it's at the point now where you can't trust him to perform as well as we once thought he would on a regular basis. He's downgraded to weekly streamer in leagues of 12 teams or fewer but still might be worth a look next week when he faces the Royals at home.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Muhammed Wilkerson will report to training camp Wednesday.
Wilkerson has decided to prove it on the field in 2015 that he is deserving of a mega deal next off-season when he becomes a free agent. He will receive $6.96 million in the final year of his rookie deal. If he does continue to be a dominant defensive lineman, he could command at least what the Saints Cameron Jordan received two-months ago which was five-years, $60 million dollars.

Rockies acquired SS Jose Reyes and RHPs Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco from the Blue Jays for SS Troy Tulowitzki and RHP LaTroy Hawkins.
So the trade that everyone and their grandmother reported late Monday night is now officially official. The Blue Jays get a power-hitter they didn't really need, but apparently for them, it was about getting a guy who could be on the field more. Oh the irony. Toronto, given the Rodgers Centre dimensions, is probably the only safe place for Tulo to go and still maintain those numbers he's posted over the year at Coors Field. Hawkins will join the bullpen. As for Reyes, he'll immediately slot in at shortstop for the Rockies and probably take over as their primary leadoff hitter. The relievers will all likely enter the Rockies system at various levels. Overall, this trade is a lateral move for all parties involved. Analysis: Howard Bender
