In other news, the Atlanta Braves have activated RHP Gavin Floyd from the disabled list.  Floyd will pick up the start on Tuesday against the Cardinals.  Anything after that will depend on how Ervin Santana‘s thumb is doing.

Floyd is probably best left alone, especially against the Cardinals.  I think I would avoid him even in NL-only leagues.

The Cleveland Indians have called up Nyjer Morgan.  Morgan went 2-5 yesterday batting leadoff while Michael Bourn nurses a sore hamstring.  Morgan does have great speed, and is worth picking up if you need steals.  He had three steals while filling in for Bourn earlier this year.

The Tampa Bay Rays have designated Heath Bell for assignment.  Bell had a 7.27 ERA and an atrocious 1.84 WHIP in 17.1 innings.  The Rays will hope someone is willing to offer at least a little bit of a return on Bell.  RHP Nate Karns will take Bell’s place in the bullpen.

    I believe Stroman has value in redraft leagues as well. If or when Dustin McGowan or Happ falter, I anticipate the Jays will give Stroman a chance. I plan to pick my spots, i.e. whenever he gets a road start or friendly opponent at home.

      That could be true. Its easy to forget that we still have five months to go. Thanks for the reply!
