Milwaukee Brewers RP Corey Knebel (oblique) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, June 9. RP Neil Ramirez was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: With Jeremy Jeffress doing a fine job as the teams' closer this year and with Will Smith back and healthy, Knebel is probably a long shot for save opportunities barring an injury ahead of him. But he entered the season as a candidate for a high-leverage job at the back end of the bullpen before his injury and could be useful in the deepest of leagues to stabilize your pitching ratios.

Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada (deltoid muscle) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, June 28. RP Neil Ramirez (shoulder) was activated in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Wada ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had inflammation but apparently no structural damage, so he should be back shortly. In the meantime, disable Wada from your roster and seek help elsewhere for a replacement.

Chicago Cubs RP Neil Ramirez (triceps) expects to return to the team once his 15-day disabled list stint is over. He is expected to continue his rehab in Mesa, Ariz., at the Cubs' facility rather than travel with the team on their upcoming six-game road trip to Los Angeles and Denver.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has pitched well this season. He should be back before Pedro Strop gains any traction in leapfrogging him on the depth chart.
