Fake Teams Hitting the Fantasy Links

Happy Thursday.  Some news that broke just as I was getting ready to schedule this to publish: Brandon Lyon is being flown back to Houston to be examined for shoulder problems, according to Astros rep Alyson Footer.  Also, don't forget that we've got another early game today.

Lester's Legends likes Adam Dunn to bounceback.

KFFL is the latest site to dig into Yovani Gallardo's rough start, and the outlook here is a bit more rosy than I've seen elsewhere.  Remember: It's always good to get a wide variety of opinions before you do something drastic, so read up if you're a Gallardo owner.

Johnny Cueto is about ready to get activated from the DL, and Roto Hardball has some notes on him.

Michael Pineda gave up 4 runs last night, including his first two home runs as a major leaguer, but he also threw 77 of 97 pitches for strikes.  He's going to be fine.
