Orioles | Brian Duensing undergoes elbow surgery

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 19:47:08 -0700

Baltimore Orioles RP Brian Duensing (elbow) has undergone surgery to remove bone chips from his elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Duensing has posted a 5.40 ERA through seven appearances this season. The 33-year-old southpaw is expected to be sidelined for at least one month and isn't worth stashing in any fantasy format.

Orioles | Mike Wright sent to minors

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 15:17:57 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright was optioned to Class AAA Norfolk Thursday, June 2, and RP Brian Duensing was recalled in a corresponding move. Wright allowed six runs on seven hits (four home runs) in just 2 2/3 innings against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, June 1. On the year, he's 2-3 with a 5.88 ERA in nine starts. Manager Buck Showalter said the O's still consider Wright a starter.

Fantasy Tip: Wright could rejoin the Baltimore rotation eventually if he shows improvement in the minors. However, his career 6.0 K/9 shows his fantasy upside is extremely limited, and he isn't best-suited to pitch in the AL East in a pitcher-friendly park. Wright is only attractive to those desperate in AL-only leagues if he resurfaces.

Twins | Illness going around Twins clubhouse

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 15:51:07 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe and RPs Brian Duensing and Kevin Jepsen have been affected by a virus going around the team's clubhouse in recent days, according to manager Paul Molitor. SP Phil Hughes (illness) was scratched from his start Monday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is in the lineup tonight as the Twins push for the wild card. He has only three hits in his last 23 at-bats since Sept. 20, though, so you may want to fade him in your daily lineups, especially while facing Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber this evening.
