Seattle Mariners SP Cody Martin could be called up to the parent club if SP Taijuan Walker (foot) has to miss a turn or go on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Martin has been a decent pitcher at Class AAA Tacoma, and he may be worth a flyer in daily formats. He isn't worth the play in other formats unless you have a deep bench and can stash Martin away.

Seattle Mariners RP Edwin Diaz will reportedly have his contract selected from Class AA Jackson and be available to the team if needed against the Texas Rangers on Saturday, June 04. RP Cody Martin will be sent down to Class AAA Tacoma in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Diaz was named Seattle's minor-league starting pitcher of the year in 2014 and 2015 before the organization asked him to convert to a reliever. The 22-year-old Puerto Rican has been dynamic out of the bullpen, allowing one unearned run while striking out 16 over 11 2/3 frames. He's probably not going to challenge Steve Cishek for the closer's role anytime soon, but his power arm figures to be a nice fit for owners in leagues that value holds.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez (rib) is dealing with a non-displaced rib fracture, and manager Bob Melvin said Chavez won't pitch again this season. SP Cody Martin is set to start Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Go ahead and drop Chavez anywhere that he was still owned. Martin has a 15.00 ERA in one start over three innings for the A's this year. That should be enough to warn you not to run with him in your daily lineups tomorrow.

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez (rib) will be scratched from his start Wednesday, Sept. 16, as he's dealing with rib soreness. Chavez is having trouble breathing and could miss the rest of the year. However, X-rays were negative and he could go for an MRI exam Wednesday. SP Cody Martin could replace Chavez in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: While it's possible Chavez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) could return to make another start this year, it's unlikely at this juncture. Dump him in any league that you still own him and don't plan on using him on FantasyScore.

Oakland Athletics SP Cody Martin will start Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in place of the injured SP Chris Bassitt (shoulder).
Fantasy Tip: Give Martin at least one start to show what he can do before depending upon him. He might simply get one look if Bassitt ends up being able to return sooner rather than later.
