The New York Yankees have placed SP David Phelps (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list because of elbow tendinitis. The team also recalled RP Matt Daley from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: The team has not announced who will take Phelps' spot in the starting rotation, but Esmil Rogers could be an option. Rogers likely would only be an option for AL-only owners desperate for pitching.

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (lat) will be shut down for 10 days and will miss at least three to four weeks with a Grade 1 strain to his teres major muscle in his shoulder/lat area, according to general manager Brian Cashman. An MRI exam revealed the strain. SP David Phelps is expected to remain in the rotation with Pineda sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: Phelps is a must-add in AL-only leagues now in the short term. Pineda dealt with shoulder problems all of last season, too, so this is somewhat concerning.

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda's (lat) MRI exam showed he has a Grade 1 strain of his lat muscle.
Fantasy Tip: Pineda will surely miss his next scheduled start after he comes off his suspension next week, and it might land him on the disabled list, as well. Lat strains for pitchers require rest, even though it's a mild strain. David Phelps is filling in for Pineda this week, and he's expected to remain in the rotation for as long as Pineda is out.

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (lat) left his simulated game after an inning with a tight lat Tuesday, April 29, and he'll go for tests. It's unlikely that he'll make his first start after he returns from his suspension. SP David Phelps is expected to remain in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on the results of Pineda's tests. Lat injuries can be debilitating for pitchers, depending on the severity. Look to add Phelps in AL-only leagues if Pineda requires a DL stint.
