Pittsburgh Pirates RP Cory Luebke (hamstring) started his minor-league rehab assignment with two scoreless innings for Class AAA Indianapolis Thursday, April 21, while RP Jared Hughes (lat) also worked two scoreless rehab innings Wednesday, April 20.
Fantasy Tip: Luebke and Hughes aren't worth using in most fantasy formats when healthy, but they're decent NL-only options in rotisserie leagues which utilize true middle relievers.

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke will work in the Grapefruit League spring game Wednesday, March 2, against the Detroit Tigers and he will be followed by Ps Juan Nicasio, Jared Hughes, Arquimedes Caminero, Eric O'Flaherty and Jorge Rondon.
Fantasy Tip: Locke went 8-11 with a 4.49 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP in 30 starts while striking out 129 over 168 1/3 innings. It was a so-so year for the southpaw, who had a career-high ERA, but also had his most strikeouts while serving up one fewer homer in 37 more innings than 2014. If he can re-gain his control he isn't a bad back-end fantasy rotation option in NL-only leagues.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are placing RP Jason Grilli (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 25, with a left oblique strain, retroactive to April 21. RP Jared Hughes will be recalled from the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Mark Melancon is expected to take sole control of the ninth-inning duties while Grilli is out. Oblique injuries are very tricky for pitchers, especially for a 37-year-old body. Melancon should be swooped up immediately in all leagues. He could be relevant for beyond the two-week DL stint.
