The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed SP Juan Nicasio on the restricted list so that he can return to the Dominican Republic to take care of a family matter. The team is likely to call up SP Wilfredo Boscan from Class AAA Indianapolis to start in his place Tuesday, June 21, against the San Francisco Giants. In other moves, the Pirates recalled RPs Curtis Partch and Jorge Rondon and INF Jason Rogers from Indianapolis, while designating RP Cory Luebke for assignment and optioning RP Rob Scahill to Indianapolis.
Fantasy Tip: Nicasio is 5-6 with a 5.83 ERA through 13 appearances (12 starts) this season, with 27 walks and 65 strikeouts through 63 1/3 innings. Despite the high strikeout totals, the 29-year-old right-hander is in jeopardy of being demoted to the bullpen soon because of his struggles facing batters during the second and third times through the batting order. Boscan is 1-0 with a 2.92 ERA in five relief appearances at the MLB level this season but would make a risky play in DFS Tuesday.

Pittsburgh Pirates RP Tony Watson was placed on the paternity list Wednesday, May 25. RP Rob Scahill has been recalled from Class AAA Indianapolis.
Fantasy Tip: Watson is the primary eighth-inning setup man for Mark Melancon in Pittsburgh. The left-hander has been stellar with a 2.18 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 7.4 strikeouts per nine innings. He's valuable in much deeper leagues and as a handcuff for Melancon owners.
