4/24:Any hopes Texas Rangers relief pitcher Kevin Jepsen had of wrestling the closer's role from Keone Kela went up in smoke Monday. Jepsen came into a tie game with two outs in the top of the eighth inning, which he successfully navigated. However, he ran into trouble in the ninth inning, where he gave up four earned runs on three hits and a walk. Prior to this outing, Jepsen had given up just two earned runs in 10 2/3 innings with six strikeouts. Following Kela's bad outing on Friday, Jepsen had gained ground in the closer competition, but those gains now appear to have been lost.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
4/24:Houston Astros starter Charlie Morton will face Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani on Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park. Morton has begun the season in phenomenal fashion and will take the mound looking for his fourth win of the season. Through 25 innings this season, Morton has allowed only 16 hits while striking out 33 with an ERA at a minuscule 0.72 and a WHIP of 0.88. The 34-year-old really hit his stride last season and Morton looks even sharper thus far in 2018. Despite an obvious regression to the norm coming, Morton has been an absolute fantasy steal so far.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros
4/24:Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Colin Moran is out of the lineup against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday. Moran is scuffling a bit over his previous nine games, batting only .179/.200/.250 in his last 30 plate appearances. He also hasn't homered since April 2, so manager Clint Hurdle may just want his young third baseman to get an additional breather after the off day on Monday. David Freese is getting the starting nod and batting seventh against Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann.--Matt Wilkes - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Pirates
4/24:Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Ian Kennedy faces off against the Milwaukee Brewers at Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday. Kennedy has pitched well so far this season with a 2.35 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 23 innings. In two home starts, he has surrendered just two earned runs with eight strikeouts in 12 innings. Now he gets to face off against a team that has blown hot and cold this season and has struck out 215 times in 23 games. Facing a team with the power of Milwaukee at home will hopefully help Kennedy avoid giving up the long ball, which he has struggled with in the past. Kennedy is a high-risk, high-reward DFS start Tuesday.--Ben Rolfe - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
4/24:Seattle Mariners catcher Mike Zunino snapped an 0-for-9 streak to begin his season by collecting two hits Monday night, including a his first home run of the season. It is the smallest of sample sizes, but Zunino is already giving fantasy owners a taste of what to expect. He already has seven strikeouts through his first 13 at-bats but flashed the power that allowed him to send 25 balls over the fence in 2017. Zunino will hit eighth Tuesday against the White Sox and is as feast or famine as it gets in fantasy baseball moving forward.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Seattle Mariners
4/24:MLB.com Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch reports that first baseman Tyler Austin will not be in the lineup Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins. There is no news as to why Austin is out, but Neil Walker will be playing at first in his place and will be batting seventh. Austin had been batting .346 with three doubles and two home runs over his last seven games. There are questions as to whether Tuesday's game is the first of a five-game suspension Austin is currently appealing stemming from a benches-clearing brawl against the Red Sox on April 11. For now, though, there is no word that his absence is due to the suspension.--Michael Grennell - RotoBallerSource: Bryan Hoch
4/24:Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story is on a roll, and he didn't want to let it fall apart on a Monday. Story homered in the first inning against the Padres to help complete a weekend cycle that saw him knock five hits over three days, including two singles, a double, a triple, and a homer. He also stole his fifth base of the season just to round out the excellent three-day span. Story is still striking out over 30% of the time, but he's also walking more than 11% of the time, a major league career high for him. With five homers and five stolen bases before the end of April, it looks like this version of Story may be the best yet.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
4/24:Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Rick Porcello will start against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday. Thus far, he has been excellent with a 1.40 ERA through four starts. Porcello also has 23 strikeouts in 25 innings and only a single walk allowed this season. If history is any indication, this might not be as easy a start as it seems. Porcello has a career 9-9 record against the Blue Jays with a 4.98 ERA.--Ellis Canady - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
4/24:Colorado Rockies middle reliever Scott Oberg isn't a heavily owned member of the fantasy universe, but if he was slotted in anyone's roster Monday night, he likely isn't still on it now. Oberg entered the game in the seventh inning with two on and one out, which isn't ideal, but it is part of the job. However, instead of finding a way out of the jam, Oberg absolutely melted down. After getting the first batter he faced out, Oberg's next five batters took turns singling or walking before he was relieved by Antonio Senzatela. Senzatela then cleared the bases with a couple surrendered hits of his own, and that hung a 135 ERA on Oberg for the night.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
4/24:The Seattle Mariners made a pair of roster moves on Tuesday morning, as they have added outfielder Jayson Werth and pitcher Roenis Elias to their Triple-A affiliate, the Tacoma Rainiers. In corresponding moves, the team has released pitcher Josh Smith and infielder Matt Hague. Werth appeared in 70 games last season for the Washington Nationals and hit 10 home runs while knocking in 29 runs and carrying a .226 batting average. Elias rejoins the Mariners organization following a short stint in Boston. Elias made 49 starts for the M's between the 2014 and 2016 seasons. For now, both Werth and Elias are off the fantasy radar.--Brendan Kennealy - RotoBallerSource: Mike Curto, Twitter
4/24:Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Chad Bettis had a rough start to his night on Monday by giving up four earned runs in the first inning. However, his offense picked him up by getting them right back and Bettis settled into a groove for the next four innings of his outing. Bettis would be lifted after five innings and 94 pitches, but he left with a lead. His bullpen would go on to implode and leave him without a decision, but Bettis has now had four solid starts this year outside of a single inning in his most recent game. The catch is that his 2.40 ERA is still highly dependent on his 83.7 percent strand rate. His FIP is 4.44, and prospective owners should expect his ERA to begin heading in that direction soon.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
4/24:The Colorado Rockies have signed free-agent relief pitcher Brett Oberholtzer to a minor league deal, according to Chris Cotillo. Oberholtzer hasn't pitched in the majors since 2016, and he hasn't finished a season with an ERA under 4.00 since 2013. It's unclear if Oberholtzer will be able to find his way back to the big leagues, but with Colorado's pitching struggles, they're turning over every rock in search of some more arms. Oberholtzer can be ignored in fantasy.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: Chris Cotillo
4/24:Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon was interviewed earlier on Monday and said that third baseman Kris Bryant (eye) is “fine,” and it is 50-50 on whether he plays Tuesday night. Bryant suffered a laceration above his right eye Sunday after he was hit in the face. Bryant passed all of his concussion tests, but the team may still opt to give him another recovery day. More will be known when the Cubs release their lineup later Tuesday.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Mark Gonzales
4/24:With Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia (hamstring) placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, outfielder Trayce Thompson will start in right field and bat seventh. Thompson is 2-for-8 since coming back to the White Sox off waivers, and that includes one home run. He is worth monitoring in AL-only leagues but is best suited on the waiver wire.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Chicago White Sox
4/24:Chicago White Sox outfielder Nick Delmonico will rest Tuesday versus the Seattle Mariners. Leury Garcia will be in left field Tuesday evening and bat eighth. Delmonico is off to a slow start with a .241 batting average and .643 OPS. He can be avoided in all formats for now.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Chicago White Sox
