Nationals | Jonathan Papelbon put on DL

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 10:55:05 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain Tuesday, June 14. RP Matt Belisle (calf) was activated from the DL in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Despite saving 16 of his 18 chances this year, Paps was very shaky with a 3.28 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 2.9 walks per nine. Because there's still a decent chance he'll be in the mix for saves when he's back, you'll probably want to stash him at least in deeper formats. Intercostal injuries are tricky, so don't be surprised if Papelbon is out beyond 15 days. Shawn Kelley needs to be owned everywhere now. He pitched 1 2/3 innings for his first save Monday night and has been a much better reliever than Papelbon this season. Kelley could continue seeing saves opportunities even after Papelbon returns to full health.

Nationals | Matt Belisle continues to rehab

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 19:57:22 -0700

Washington Nationals RP Matt Belisle (calf) has worked nine games for Class AAA Syracuse through Sunday, June 12, as part of a lengthy minor-league rehab assignment. He has posted a 4.09 ERA over 11 innings during the stint.

Fantasy Tip: Belisle is worth a look in deeper NL-only rotisserie formats which use true middle relievers. Other than that, he can mostly be avoided in all other formats.
