Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison is the probable pitcher for Saturday, July 26, against the New York Yankees. He is 0-3 with a 9.22 ERA in three starts over 13 2/3 innings against the Yankees this season.
FANTASY TIP: If you were contemplating starting Hutchison in daily fantasy Saturday, don't do it. Plus, the Blue Jays have dropped 17 straight road games to the Yankees, and Hutchison hardly has the numbers to suggest that skid is going to end.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle allowed six runs and nine hits over three innings Friday, July 25, against the New York Yankees, his shortest outing since June 6, 2010, when he was a member of the Chicago White Sox. He hasn't beaten the Yankees since 2004, and the Blue Jays have dropped 17 straight road games against the Yankees, a skid which started September 2012. It is the longest losing streak at one opponent since the Tampa Bay Rays lost 18 in a row on the road against the Cleveland Indians from September 2005 to July 2010.
FANTASY TIP: Buehrle started the season 10-1, and was a huge sell-high fantasy candidate. He is now 0-6 with a 4.83 ERA over his past nine starts since his last victory June 1.

Updating a previous report, the St. Louis Cardinals will sign free-agent C A.J. Pierzynski (Red Sox) Saturday, July 26. He has already joined up with the club in Chicago.
FANTASY TIP: Pierzynski still has a little something left in the tank, and he obviously wasn't a fit (and he'll tell you and the team in an open letter) with the Red Sox. The veteran is an upgrade over Tony Cruz and George Kottaras to bridge the gap until Yadier Molina can return. He is a nice NL-only pickup at catcher, and still a serviceable No. 2 backstop in mixed formats.

San Diego Padres OF Carlos Quentin (undisclosed) left the game Friday, July 25, against the Atlanta Braves due to an undisclosed reason. He struck out, and appeared to be frustrated returning to the dugout. OF Will Venable replaced him in the lineup midway through the game.
FANTASY TIP: It is unknown if Quentin suffered an injury, but given his medical history, it wouldn't be shocking in the least to see him on the shelf again.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) will make a minor-league rehab start Monday, July 28, with Triple-A Indianapolis. Manager Clint Hurdle said Cole will shoot for 80 to 85 pitches Monday after throwing 60 pitches in a bullpen session Friday, July 25. Cole sounded open to making at least one or two rehab starts before returning to the big club.
FANTASY TIP: It might be two more scoring periods before fantasy owners have Cole back with the big league team. Be patient, but don't expect to activate him until early August.
