Update: Red Sox signed OF Rusney Castillo to a seven year, 72.5 million dollar deal.
It's doubtful that we see Castillo as any point this season, but he'll be in camp for the Red Sox next year and will be patrolling one of the outfield spots depending on the personnel they decide to go with in 2015. As for where to draft him next year, a lot is going to depend on what we see from him in the offseason and early on in the spring.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tanner Roark is expected to be on a limit of around 70 pitches Monday.
Monday's start will be the first of the season for the 15-game winner from last year. Roark is taking the spot of Doug Fister in the rotation as Fister recovers from an ailing forearm. The pitch limit will is only because he has not been lengthened into a starter yet this year. Normally an efficient pitcher, the Cubs will test him as they average 4.0 pitches per plate appearance this year. Analysis: Matt Selz
Sean Doolittle is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.
The Athletics were thrilled to see the performance of Doolittle in his last rehab outing on Friday. Doolittle was reevaluated on Monday and was given clearance to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday. Bob Melvin said they would work him back into the fold slowly and not put him right back into high pressure situations. The return of Doolittle hurts the fantasy value of Tyler Clippard.
