Garrett Richards    P   Los Angeles Angels
Richards (knee) will start Sunday against the Astros, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This was expected, with the right-hander working up to 91 pitches in his rehab start with Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, but the team has officially cleared Richards to return for the finale against Houston. Before going down with the injury last season, Richards went 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 164:51 K:BB. He's someone most owners will want active from the get-go.
Odubel Herrera    2B   Philadelphia Phillies
Herrera went 3-for-4 Saturday with a walk, a double, an RBI, two runs scored and two stolen bases.

Billy Hamilton    OF   Cincinnati Reds
Hamilton left Saturday's game against the Cardinals in the top of the eighth inning, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hamilton was injured trying to beat out an infield single. It's unclear what exactly is ailing him, but he should be considered day-to-day and questionable for Sunday's finale until the team elaborates.
Miguel Castro    P   Toronto Blue Jays
Castro blew his first save of the season on Saturday, coughing up a solo home run to Kelly Johnson in the top of the ninth.

Ryan Braun    OF   Milwaukee Brewers
Braun will bat leadoff against the Pirates on Saturday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Carlos Gomez (hamstring) landing on the DL, the Brewers have a hole atop the order, and it will be Braun who sets the table Saturday. It marks the first time Braun has led off in his career. The 31-year-old Braun is still without an extra-base hit this season (seven singles), so this move out of a key RBI spot makes some sense, but it seems likely to be temporary.
Carlos Beltran    OF   New York Yankees
Beltran is not in the starting lineup Saturday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.
