Dexter Fowler Los Angeles Angels

Out for the year with a torn ACL. Will the Angels just put Walsh in RF and Pujols at 1B? Or will they call up one of their minor leaguers who need more seasoning? Jo Adell obviously requires it. Brandon Marsh, it remains to be seen. They probably would keep him down an extra week or so just to start his service time clock later.

Luis is the PIT Oviedo.  Rule 5 RP who made the roster.

Zach McKinstry Los Angeles Dodgers

I am on team Zach. Don't see what Haseley offers Roto players. No power no speed extant. Plus Zach offers multi-position eligibility.

GEOFF CRESAP SydThrift

Need to drop a player to activate Ahmed. Choice is between Zach and Haseley. Leaning toward keeping Zach. Any thoughts?

joel schreier jschri

Fine by me.

Good luck to everyone drafting today!

And with that, we settle back to watch.

Jorge Alfaro Miami Marlins

Jorge Alfaro (C) MIA - Apr. 10

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=769790

Alfaro was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Mets due to lingering tightness in his left hamstring.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: He was originally slated to return after missing two games with hamstring tightness, but apparently he didn't quite get through pregame warmups without still feeling the injury. Chad Wallach will enter the lineup in his place.

Chris Archer Tampa Bay Rays

Chris Archer (P) TB - Apr. 10

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=769860

Archer (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Archer suffered a right forearm injury during Saturday's start against the Yankees that forced him to be removed in the third inning. However, manager Kevin Cash said that Archer's injury isn't anything too serious and was optimistic that the right-hander would only be forced to miss one start. Brent Honeywell was recalled by the Rays in a corresponding move and will serve as the opener for Sunday's series finale against the Yankees.

Ryan Zimmerman Washington Nationals

I've seen about 10 of his ABs over the past couple of weeks ... he's hitting so well ... just seems like he's barreling everything ...

My guess is you'll be glad to hear that this looks like my final update for a while ... future updates will have to come from George Costanza (who had the guts to DeGrom in Doubt Wars!) ...

Mookie Betts Los Angeles Dodgers

I decided to combine two strategies in a league where I was taking over a team with only 4 keepers and $33 spent. League is 10 owners / 312 normal / 28 players since we are down to 10 owners (1 extra UT, 1 extra OF, 1 SW, 2 extra P).

I combined $1 pitching staff with Stars and Scrubs. This league didn't play last year and tossed a roster which gave us more stars to pull from. This league also let's you retro-reserve any player (i.e. you can toss bad stats) for no reason at all.

I opened up by getting down to dollar days in the first 32 names of a 169 player auction.

Betts 46, Freeman 44, Arenado 30, Machado 34, Calhoun 17, Star Marte 31, Baez 27, Albies 37. (Carried over Wong 10, ONeill 10, Tapia 5, Dubon 5. Final hitters on bench for a dollar were Pablo, Gomes, Camasauno, Owings.

Pitchers (all $1): Graterol, DeSclafini, Antone, Bass, Ginkel, Wood, Weaver, Houser, Miley, Poncedelon, Price.  Added some pitchers in the reserve draft as well.

Was super fun. Have no idea if it will work out.

Posting Stieb's no hitter, reminds me, didn't he have back to back perfect games or at least no hitters going that were broken up with two outs in the 9th?
