New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon, Arizona Diamondbacks SP Trevor Cahill, Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman and Philadelphia Phillies SP A.J. Burnett have interested the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as they search to replace SP Garrett Richards (knee) in their starting rotation. Ps Randy Wolf, Chris Volstad and Michael Roth are the Angels' current in-house options. Burnett is believed not to want to go to the West Coast. Colon may be the best option, but the Angels may face competition from other teams looking to beef up their rotations.

The Colorado Rockies recalled SP Roy Oswalt from the minors Thursday, June 20, and optioned SP Jeff Francis to Triple-A Colorado Springs in a corresponding move. Also, SP Chris Volstad was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Oswalt probably isn't as bad as his numbers with the Texas Rangers last year reflected, but he's 35 and pitching in another unfriendly environment for hurlers. He's a risky gamble, but one you can justify taking in deep enough mixed leagues.

The Colorado Rockies have selected the contract of RP Logan Kensing. In a corresponding move, RP Chris Volstad has been optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Colorado Rockies OF Eric Young Jr. will be designated for assignment prior to the club's game on Wednesday, June 12. The club is promoting RP Chris Volstad to take that spot on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Tyler Colvin's two-homer game has clearly gotten Walt Weiss' attention. EY Jr. wasn't causing the same kind of trouble when he was in the lineup that he did earlier this season, either, so it's no surprise that they're going in a different direction, but this is perhaps a bit surprising. Someone seems likely to be interesting in Young.

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa (finger) is being monitored because of a small cut on a finger of his throwing hand. If he needs to miss time, the club could bring up P Chris Volstad.
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like a big deal, but DLR could miss a start. Volstad isn't a fantasy option if he gets the call.
