Tampa Bay Rays SP Chase Whitley (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte Monday, July 18.
Fantasy Tip: Whitley is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and is unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact until the 2017 season. He's not worth stashing outside of deep AL-only leagues.

Tampa Bay Rays P Chase Whitley (elbow) mixed in curveballs in his 35-pitch session against hitters. It was his third session since returning from Tommy John surgery.

Tampa Bay Rays SPs Alex Cobb (elbow) and Chase Whitley (elbow), each making their way back from Tommy John surgery, were able to throw fastballs off a mound Wednesday, May 4.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb and Whitley might return at some point this season, but for now they can be left to the waiver wire unless you have extremely deep reserve or plenty of DL spots.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chase Whitley (elbow) threw 25 fastballs from halfway up a mound during his second bullpen session of the week Friday, April 15.
Fantasy Tip: Whitley is recovering from Tommy John surgery and it is uncertain if he will be able to pitch this season, so he shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar at this time.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chase Whitley (elbow) was able to throw 20 fastballs from halfway up a mound Tuesday, April 12. He is making his way back from Tommy John surgery.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Whitley will be able to contribute this season or not. The former New York Yankee still has a long way to go before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment.

New York Yankees SP Chase Whitley (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery on his elbow Tuesday, May 19, and it'll be performed by team Dr. Chris Ahmad.
Fantasy Tip: Drop Whitley in all single-year fantasy formats. Chris Capuano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) returned from the DL and had a shaky start against the Kansas City Royals Sunday. He figures to remain in the rotation for the time being but really is only an option for owners in deep AL-only leagues. At FantasyScore, Capuano is merely a desperation sleeper play in the right matchup.

New York Yankees SP Chase Whitley (elbow) has a torn tendon in his pitching elbow. Whitley is scheduled to meet with the team doctor Monday, May 18, and a decision on possible surgery will be made after the visit.
Fantasy Tip: Whitley ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely will miss a significant period of time if he needs to undergo surgery. Chris Capuano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will take his place in the starting rotation but is not a great option on FantasyScore.
