Jordan Reed on PUP list, but likely just precautionary move

Brant Tedeschi Jul 26th 7:55 PM EDT.

Fantasy owners and Washington Redskins fans know how important Jordan Reed is to their success. Evidently, so does Redskins management as they decided to put Reed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Reed has been suffering from a sprained toe which does not seem to be too serious. The move is apparently a precautionary one, according to the Post's source.


Chris Sale Continues to Dominate

Brant Tedeschi Jul 26th 7:48 PM EDT.

Chris Sale and the Boston Red Sox dominated the Seattle Mariners by the score of 4-0. Sale ended the day with 7 IP, 3 hits, 1 walk, and 11 strikeouts.

Business as usual for Chris Sale. He has given up only 4 runs for the entire month of July and lowered his ERA to 2.37 and WHIP to 0.88.


Aroldis Chapman's disappointing season continues

Brant Tedeschi Jul 16th 3:43 PM EDT.

The Yankees and fantasy owners had high hopes for Aroldis Chapman heading into the 2017 baseball season. He was projected by many to be a top 3 closer and hasn't come close to meeting those expectations.

He has been activated from the DL over a month ago and has only managed ONE save. Yes, you read that correctly, he has more blown saves (2) since coming off the DL than actual saves.


Kris Bryant Suffers Ankle Injury

The Chicago Cubs will be without Kris Bryant after he suffered an ankle sprain in Wednesday night's game. The severity of the injury has not been released, but Bryant is hopeful he will stay of the disabled list.

The injury occurred during the fifth inning, and Bryant exited the game. For now he is listed as day to day with a mild ankle sprain.


Jacob Faria is a hot waiver pickup

Brant Tedeschi Jun 15th 3:45 PM EDT.

Jacob Faria has two starts so far this season and looked extremely impressive in both starts for the Tampa Bay Rays. He picked up two wins and two quality starts already.

Faria has pitched 12.2 innings for a 13/3 K/BB and a 9.2 K/9 with a 1.42 ERA and .95 WHIP. Those are lights out numbers and he has already increased in ownership up to 53%.


Jason Heyward Returns to Action Saturday

Lesley Tedeschi May 19th 2:21 PM EDT.

After spending the last two weeks away from the field, Jason Heyward is scheduled to be back in action on Saturday. The outfielder has been dealing with a sore knuckle on his right hand, and is finally feeling better.

The Chicago Cubs are taking on the NL central leaders, the Milwaukee Brewers. The Cubs have a decision to make about whether or not to send Ian Happ back down to the minors in order to make room for Heyward. Heyward had a positive outing during his rehab game on Thursday night, so the chances that the Cubs put Happ back down to the minors is likely.


Closer Mark Melancon Back From DL

Lesley Tedeschi May 17th 6:07 PM EDT.

After being on the disabled list since May 9th, closer Mark Melancon is finally off of the disabled list. The San Francisco Giants activated the closer on Wednesday after he had been sidelined with a pronator strain near his right elbow.

Melancon threw a bullpen session recently and felt great afterwards, so his return to the mound happened a few days earlier than expected. The original date of Friday was pushed forward after Melancon insisted that he was ready to get back out there and that he feels great all around.


Troy Tulowitzki Expected Back Wednesday

Lesley Tedeschi May 15th 6:32 PM EDT.

The Toronto Blue Jays are hoping to have shortstop Troy Tulowitzki back in time for Wednesday's series opener against the Atlanta Braves.

Tulowitzki has been out for over three weeks dealing with a hamstring injury. The strained right hamstring was tested in a simulated game on Sunday and all signs seem to be pointed towards Tulo's return.


Aroldis Chapman Placed on DL

Lesley Tedeschi May 15th 12:13 PM EDT.

Closer Aroldis Chapman was placed on the 10 day disabled list retroactive to Saturday. Chapman is dealing with inflammation in his left shoulder rotator cuff. The New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman said to expect to see Chapman sidelined with the next four weeks.

Chapman had an MRI on Saturday morning that luckily revealed there is no structural damage to his shoulder. The Yankees will take things slowly to give their reliever time to recover.


Jeurys Familia Possible Surgery

Lesley Tedeschi May 11th 3:09 PM EDT.

The New York Mets are once again being tested in their pitching department. Closer Jeurys Familia was diagnosed with an arterial clot in his right shoulder and will travel to St.Louis to be further evaluated.

Familia has already missed time this season after starting off serving a 15 game suspension. He had violated the MLB's domestic violence policy that stemmed from an issue from the previous October with his wife. The Mets are struggling to keep their pitching staff healthy and this is another hit for them.
