UPDATES & NEWS
Jake Peavy allowed three runs(one earned) on six hits while walking one and striking out five over seven innings as the Giants fell to the Rockies 3-2.
Peavy fell to 2-4 since being dealt to the Giants despite allowing three runs or less in five of his first six starts with his new team. He is now sitting on a 4.31 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 26 starts between the Red Sox and the Giants while owning a 128:55 K:BB rate over 163.2 innings. After allowing 20 home runs as a member of the Red Sox, Peavy has given up just two home runs since July 27, so he has clearly taken the steps in the right direction, which makes him a solid pick up for the stretch run, even if his record doesn't indicate it. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Brewers on Saturday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Carlos Rodon will take the injured Chris Sale's Cactus League start on Friday.
Rodon, the team's top prospect and 14th-overall prospect in baseball, will start in place of Chris Sale who fractured his right foot in an accident at his home. Rodon is a sleeper to take Sale's spot in the rotation while he deals with this issue, but those in dynasty leagues need to be aware of Rodon's immense fantasy potential. He is going to be a force in fantasy in the near future, but it most likely won't be in 2015. Analysis: Colby Conway
Jose Iglesias was able to run the bases Sunday and said he felt fine.
Iglesias will play one inning for the Tigers in their opener tomorrow against Florida Southern. He will start at shortstop and will hold down the two spot in the lineup. Iglesias missed the entire 2014 season with stress fractures in each of his legs. Iglesias is an incredible defender who will strengthen the Detroit defense as a whole. If he proves he is healthy, Iglesias can be a serviceable fantasy option as he did hit .303 back in 2013 for Boston and Detroit. Analysis: Colby Conway
