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.

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.

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.
