Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien was recalled from Class AAA Reno Friday, June 10. In a corresponding move, SP Edwin Escobar was optioned to Reno.
Fantasy Tip: O'Brien owns elite power potential and has posted a .587 slugging percentage with 43 home runs through 759 plate appearances. He might not receive much playing time, though, so leave him to cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. Escobar returned a 14.14 ERA over two starts and should be replaced in all seasonal leagues.

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Edwin Escobar will be pitching out of the bullpen, according to manager Chip Hale. A starter for Saturday, June 11, is to be determined.
Fantasy Tip: Well, that didn't take long, not that it should have, as Escobar probably shouldn't have been starting for the Diamondbacks in the first place. Regardless, he shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters. Josh Collmenter may be someone to monitor if he is summoned to take the left-hander's spot, but will have to reprove himself first.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Edwin Escobar allowed eight runs - seven earned - and 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings in his first career start Monday, May 30, against the Houston Astros.
Fantasy Tip: Escobar threw just 53 of his 87 pitches for strikes. He isn't likely to stick around in the Arizona rotation at this rate, and he doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration at this time.

Arizona Diamondbacks SPs Archie Bradley and Edwin Escobar will start against the San Diego Padres Sunday, May 29, and the Houston Astros Monday, May 30, respectively, manager Chip Hale announced Friday, May 27.
Fantasy Tip: Through his first two starts of the season, Bradley has allowed nine runs through just 10 1/3 innings, which makes him a risky option in all fantasy formats. Escobar owns a 4.79 ERA through 220 innings at the Class AAA level, and it'll be his first career start Monday, so he is an equally risky start. Both are nothing more than flier adds in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.
