"He's done a really good job in his first two starts," Gibson said. "I know that. What we're looking for is people to execute game plans, and he was very sharp when he came out early.

Hudson likely to start for Chicago on SundayPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 34 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Daniel Hudson is expected to be recalled by the White Sox to start on Sunday, according to MLB.com. Our View Jake Peavy (back) will not be able to make his start on Sunday and could be out for much longer than that, so the prospect Hudson will finally get his chance. He's gone 11-4 with a 3.47 ERA for Triple-A Charlotte and has been especially good over his last 10 starts, going 7-2 with a 2.64 ERA. He's worth a look in all AL-only leagues, as well as any deeper mixed league.

Youkilis may be available todayPosted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 34 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News X-rays on Kevin Youkilis' ankle came back negative, and he may be available to play on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. Our View Youkilis' presence in Boston's lineup today is far from a sure thing, but it sounds like Youkilis believes he'll be out there. Owners in daily leagues should be sure to check back in later today, but this injury certainly does not seem like anything to worry about in the long term.
Could Ellsbury be back this weekend?Posted in Fantasy Baseball by DuckSnort 34 days ago (http://ownersedge.fanball.com)
The News Jacoby Ellsbury (ribs) could be ready to join the Red Sox in their weekend series at Toronto, according to the Boston Globe. "He may not," manager Terry Francona said of Ellsbury's possible return. "But if he's at the point where he can do the baseball stuff, then he'll join us." Our View Keep in mind that this is far from a sure thing, and it'd seem like a rush to get him back before the All-Star break. It's nice to hear that he's making good progress, but keep Ellsbury out of your lineup until you know for sure that he'll be back.

Mathis' spot in the rotation is definitely temporary, and thus there's no reason to bother picking him up.
