Baltimore Orioles 2B Ryan Flaherty is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Saturday, Aug. 29. SS Paul Janish will start at shortstop and is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Flaherty ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Janish is not a great starting option in any fantasy league.

Baltimore Orioles SS Paul Janish is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Tuesday, Aug. 25.
Fantasy Tip: Janish was just recalled, and he could hold fleeting value in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues while J.J. Hardy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is out. You'll likely want to aim higher than Janish in daily contests Tuesday, though. Over his last 221 games in the majors, he owns a .202/.259/.250 slash line.

Colorado Rockies minor league manager Glenallen Hill pointed out that 2B Josh Rutledge is more successful at the plate when he hits with his hands lower during their time working together in 2013. "He came up to me and told me when I was hitting well, my hands were lower," Rutledge said. "I started to feel better after that. Glenallen helped me a lot, and gave me at-bats and a chance to have success." Rutledge will compete with OF Charlie Culberson and SS Paul Janish for roster spots this spring.

Atlanta Braves SS Tyler Pastornicky (knee) will miss the rest of the year and will have surgery to fix a torn anterior cruciate ligament Monday, Aug. 19. Pastornicky tore the ligament in his knee after he crashed into OF Jason Heyward Wednesday, Aug. 14, attempting to catch a fly ball. INF Phil Gosselin is being called up from Triple-A Gwinnett. Gosselin hit .277 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Pastornicky was filling in for Dan Uggla (Lasik eye surgery) at second base. Now, that task will fall to some combination of Paul Janish and Gosselin. Nothing really worth pursuing unless you're desperate for a middle infielder in NL-only leagues.

The Atlanta Braves placed 2B Dan Uggla (eye) on the 15-day disabled list due to eye surgery Tuesday, Aug. 13, and recalled SS Tyler Pastornicky from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Pastornicky and Paul Janish could split time at second base with Uggla sidelined, but they should only be considered in NL-only leagues for now. Uggla was hitting under .200, although he has 21 home runs.
