Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo (shoulder, biceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 23, with right shoulder biceps tendonitis. RP Brian Matusz (back, ribs) was activated from the disabled list. RP Vance Worley could be stretched out to start when Gallardo's turn comes around.
Fantasy Tip: Matusz has fringe mixed league value for ratios. Worley would be an AL-only option if they insert him into the rotation. For Gallardo owners, it could be a two-to-four-week absence depending on how the shoulder responds to rest and rehab. Stash him if you have the space.

Baltimore Orioles P Brian Matusz (back, ribs) worked three scoreless innings for Class A Frederick in a minor-league rehab appearance Tuesday, April 19. "That's what we were looking for," manager Buck Showalter said.
Fantasy Tip: Matusz might be able to re-join the big club soon, but he will work in the bullpen and is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only rotisserie leagues for help in the ERA and WHIP categories.
