Cleveland Indians RP Tommy Hunter (abdomen) has posted a 1.50 ERA in five appearances for Class AAA Columbus during his rehab assignment, with no walks and four strikeouts over six innings.
Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for Hunter's return. When he comes back, expect Cleveland to use him in a setup role, which would make him valuable in AL-only and deep mixed leagues where the holds category is used.

Cleveland Indians RP Tommy Hunter (abdomen) allowed one run and three hits over one inning in his second rehab appearance for Class AAA Columbus Wednesday, April 13.

The Tampa Bay Rays are having advanced talks with free-agent RP Tommy Hunter (Cubs).
Fantasy Tip: Hunter went 4-2 with a 4.18 ERA in 57 appearances for the Orioles and Cubs in 2015 and would likely be used in a setup role to CL Brad Boxberger if the Rays sign him. However, the 29-year-old right-hander could miss the beginning of the regular season while recovering from abdominal surgery. His appeal should be limited to single-universe leagues and fantasy leagues that use the holds category.

Chicago Cubs RP Tommy Hunter recorded the final two outs of a 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers to log a save in his team debut Saturday, Aug. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Hector Rondon is the primary closer, but he was likely unavailable after pitching the previous three days. Jason Motte then faltered in the ninth, opening the door for Hunter. Keep an eye on the situation, but there is a chance Hunter could earn some save chances on days Rondon can't pitch.
