Kyle Gibson will make his MLB debut on Saturday vs. the Royals. I really like him for AL-only leagues and he makes for solid matchup play in mixed leagues. I don’t think Gibson has big impact upside for this year but he should be able to post an ERA in the 3.75-4 range.
Dustin Ackley will split time between the OF and 2B. He hit really well at AAA and I think he’s worth a shot if you need a 2B help.
Tommy Hanson could be out until late July with an arm injury. With Jason Vargas possibly out until sometime in August, Jerome William and Garret Richards seem to each have a secure rotation spot for the foreseeable future.
J.A. Happ and Brandon Morrow’s could make their respective returns to the Blue Jays rotation in about a month. Chien-Ming Wang has looked good thus far but don’t get too excited. He’ll face the Red Sox tonight and the Tigers next week. I would start him late next week against the Twins.
Brett Lawrie will likely be able to return before the all-star break. Despite a rough second half last year and an even worse start to this season I still believe in Lawrie’s ability to provide plenty of fantasy value from the hot corner.
Brian Roberts will return this weekend and I think he’s worth a pickup even in mixed leagues if you need 2B help. He’s a huge injury risk at this point but he should still produce while he’s in the lineup.
Dylan Bundy will have Tommy John Surgery and shouldn’t be a factor for fantasy until 2015.
David Price should be able to make his return sometime next week.
Clay Buchholz is dealing with a shoulder issue and could be out until after the all-star break.
Anibal Sanchez has a chance to return before the all-star break.
Jake Peavy will likely make his return in 3-4 weeks.
It’s been a drama-filled week for the Yankees and Alex Rodriguez and now it’s unclear whether he will return at all this season.
Mark Teixeira will likely undergo season-ending wrist surgery. This could affect some decision-making regarding his value in keeper leagues this off-season as well. Lyle Overbay will regain his value but I think the Yankees will end up trading for an upgrade near the deadline.
After posting a 10.32 ERA in April, Erik Bedard had a 3.99 ERA in May and is having his best month yet with a 3.19 ERA in June thus far. He gets the Rays at home in his next start and he might be worth a pickup in AL-only leagues.
Koji Uehara is in at closer for the Red Sox but be careful about investing too much in him. There’s at least a decent possibility that the Red Sox end up trading for a closer.
Michael Pineda is getting closer and closer to being called up and once he joins the Yankee rotation I think he’ll be an impact fantasy SP the rest of the way.
