The most recent fantasy baseball news from RotoWire.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Farmer had been on tap to start Wednesday's game against the Royals, but the Tigers elected to change course and give that appointment to Matt Boyd, who was acquired last week in the David Price trade. The 24-year-old has been smacked around over his eight career appearances (five starts) with the Tigers the last two seasons, producing a 9.55 ERA (6.21 FIP) over 27.1 innings.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Turner hit the DL on Wednesday with an infection in his leg, but it's healing well, and the third baseman appears on pace to be back with the team next week.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)A bout of lower-back tightness forced Reddick from Sunday's game and kept him out of the lineup Monday, but he's penciled in to return Tuesday against right-hander Miguel Gonzalez. Reddick has never faced Gonzalez but is batting .312/.360/.509 against right-handed pitching this season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The plan is for Gordon to take on-field batting practice with his teammates at some point this weekend, so long as he responds well to Tuesday's activity. He still has a way to go in his rehab, but Gordon appears to at least have a chance to beat the eight-week estimate established after he suffered a Grade 3 groin strain back on July 8.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Kennedy was placed on the paternity list Saturday, and he spent the maximum three days away from the team. He's slated to start Wednesday's game against the Brewers in Milwaukee. In a corresponding move, the Padres optioned right-hander Leonel Campos to Triple-A.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Wada missed a little more than a month with inflammation in his shoulder, and he'll now return to Triple-A, where he's made 12 starts on the season, posting a 3.88 ERA across 65 innings. In seven starts for the Cubs, Wada is 1-1 with a 3.73 ERA and 8.9 K/9.
