Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon Beachy (elbow), who is coming back from his second Tommy John surgery, threw a bullpen session Monday, May 18, and he's expected to go out on a minor league rehab assignment soon. The Dodgers are expecting him to return in June if he doesn't suffer any setbacks.
Fantasy Tip: If he's healthy, Beachy ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should be expected to jump into the starting rotation with Brandon McCarthy (elbow) and Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) both done for the year. He could come out of the gates slow, especially in regards to his velocity and command, but Beachy could be a valuable piece as rotation depth to rosters for owners in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Think about stashing him now if he's available.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon Beachy (elbow) has "no doubt" that he will return to pitch at a high level, but he said he'll take as much time as he needs after having Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career. Beachy is expected to be ready to pitch around midseason. He'll make $2.75 million guaranteed on his one-year deal, and the 2016 option will be worth between $3 million and $6 million, depending on how much he pitches this year.
Fantasy Tip: Beachy won't be much use to fantasy baseball owners this year. He could be worth a look off the waiver wire in the second half of the season, but it's more likely that he won't be worth your attention until the 2016 season.
