Masahiro Tanaka will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.
These bullpen sessions are all about rebuilding Tanaka's stamina, so it is likely that they increase his pitch count which was at 25 during last Friday's session. While they want to push forward here, the club is going to have to be extremely cautious so not to further damage the UCL. The Yankees could just be spinning their wheels here as this could be all for naught. They are taking a big gamble here trying to get him ready for post-season that may never arrive and while yes, they invested a huge sum of money in him, sometimes you have to cut your losses in the immediate to build for a better future. The longer they delay the surgery, the further off it will be before they get him back.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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
