Sorry for today's delayed post, folks. Technical difficulties and all that. There might be fewer links than usual. *** Jarrod Parker’s six shutout innings on Tuesday raised our streaming starter record to 35-22 for the season. Tonight’s pick is Dillon Gee (owned in 3.9 percent of FOXSports.com leagues) against the Phillies, and we’re going to PASS on a Thursday selection due to a three-game schedule that leaves Colorado’s Jeremy Guthrie as the only low-ownership option. And if you think I’m recommending Jeremy Guthrie, you’re crazy. On to the news: Phillies’ ace Roy Halladay is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a strained lat muscle. If you own Halladay, there’s no way to sugarcoat this one – it stinks. The Phillies’ website reports that Vance Worley is projected to return on Monday to take Halladay’s real-life rotation slot, while my colleague Ryan Fowler has some fantasy replacement suggestions. Dustin Pedroia is trying to convince the Red Sox to play through his right thumb injury, but figure that they’ll take the prudent course and place him on the DL for a 2-4 week absence. If you own Pedroia, have a replacement on speed dial sometime today. The Rangers have agreed to terms with SP Roy Oswalt, who will reportedly make his first appearance in Triple A this weekend. A mid-to-late June debut in Arlington is expected, and if the Rangers’ rotation stays healthy, there won’t be any room in it for Neftali Feliz when he returns this summer. Oswalt wasn't exactly great last season, and is moving to a tougher league and home park. Mixed leaguers shouldn't get too excited. Angels’ ace Jered Weaver is on the DL due to a lower back strain. Weaver is hoping to miss just a couple of starts, but his timetable is TBD at this point. Tigers OF Austin Jackson (abdominal strain) apparently won’t be ready to come off the DL on Friday. That means speedy Quintin Berry will have more time to make a good impression. The Tigers also sent 2B/OF Ryan Raburn to the minors. Phillies C Carlos Ruiz sat again Tuesday with a hamstring strain, but might be able to return to the lineup today. The Blue Jays have sent OF Eric Thames to the minors, and with Travis Snider currently rehabbing a wrist injury, Rajai Davis becomes the team’s everyday left fielder. Even though the Jays are hinting that Thames’ demotion will be short term, Davis (1.9 percent owned) is a fine source for fantasy free-agent stolen bases. Cardinals 3B David Freese might get another day off today to rest his sore right wrist. Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval appears on target to come off the DL in about two weeks. Did you know that Giants OF Melky Cabrera has 50 hits this month? Pirates’ manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday that SS prospect Jordy Mercer was not called up from Triple A to take Clint Barmes’ job. Question for Hurdle: Why not? Catcher Josh Thole is expected to come off the DL for the Mets on Friday. Francisco Liriano returns to the Twins’ rotation today. What’s the appropriate response to this news? “All right!” Nope, that’s not it. “Finally!” Hmm, don’t think so. “%$#@! him and his 8.47 ERA!” Yep, that’s it. Been waiting for Grady Sizemore to rejoin the Indians? Prepare to keep waiting, as his timetable is murky. Reds 3B Todd Frazier saved a choking man’s life by using the Heimlich Maneuver in a Pittsburgh restaurant on Monday. Frazier is also acquitting himself well on the field, with five homers and a .950 OPS in 28 games this season. See how well-rounded a Rutgers University education can make you? R-U-Rah-Rah! Even though James Russell got Tuesday’s save, manager Dale Sveum says that Casey Coleman could be in the mix to close games for the Cubs. Have I told you how stupid the saves category is in fantasy baseball? Picking closer names out of a hat is a better strategy than trying to draft them. Freddie Freeman thinks his new sports glasses will arrive today. His manager isn’t so sure if they will, or exactly when he’ll be ready to play. Stay tuned for more news on this ridiculous situation. Here’s a story on Kirk Gibson breaking his promise to fantasy owners to make Josh Bell the Diamondbacks’ everyday third baseman. He was talking to us when he said that, right? There are four games on this afternoon’s schedule, with Royals-Indians getting things started at 12:05 p.m. ET. Set your lineups accordingly. Did you miss yesterday’s chat? Here’s a transcript. See you back here tomorrow morning. Check out more Fantasy Baseball News and Notes.
