Sonny Gray
Athletics' Sonny Gray: Throws solid rehab game Saturday
Sonny Gray, SP, OAK
4/22/2017
News: Gray threw five shutout innings in his rehab outing at High-A Stockton on Saturday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Gray was very efficient during Saturday's game, as he threw a mere 47 pitches over five innings and allowed just a single hit without walking any batters. It wouldn't come as a surprise if Gray made one or two more rehab starts before rejoining Oakland's rotation, but Saturday's effort certainly indicates that he's on the right track and that his return isn't too far away.

Tyson Ross
Rangers' Tyson Ross: Continues throwing program

News: Ross (shoulder) has resumed throwing, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Ross has gone through a long rehab process since undergoing surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in October. It was recently reported that he'd been dealing with back spasms, but he's continued throwing and plans to throw from a mound soon. At this point in time, he expects to be back with the big club at the latter end of May.

Sam Dyson
Rangers' Sam Dyson: Rehab assignment on tap
Sam Dyson, RP, TEX
4/22/2017
News: Dyson (hand) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Dyson will be eligible to come off the DL on Thursday, but it remains to be seen whether or not he'll be activated at that point. Dyson's performance to start the season has been terribly disappointing, as he's blown three saves and allowed 13 runs over 4.1 innings (six games), so the club may want to see him throw a couple quality rehab outings before bringing him off the disabled list.

Evan Longoria
Rays' Evan Longoria: Fuels Rays win with two doubles, two RBI
Evan Longoria, 3B, TB
4/22/2017
News: Longoria went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI during Saturday's win over Houston.

It's been a solid start to the campaign for the veteran, as Longoria has nine runs, three home runs and 12 RBI with a .250/.337/.444 slash line. While it might be difficult to repeat his 2016 numbers, he's locked in as a worthy starter at the hot corner in the majority of fantasy settings. Longoria is also sporting an active 7-for-17 stretch with four extra-base hits and six RBI over his past four games.

Alex Colome
Rays' Alex Colome: Collects fourth save
Alex Colome, RP, TB
4/22/2017
News: Colome allowed one hit during a scoreless ninth inning to collect his fourth save of the season Saturday against Houston.

The Tampa Bay closer hasn't allowed a run through seven innings, and after recording 37 saves with a 1.91 ERA last year, he should have a long leash in the ninth inning. It's also likely that Colome begins to show an uptick in the strikeout column -- just four punchouts this year -- after posting an 11.28 K/9 in 2015.

Jose Altuve
Astros' Jose Altuve: Blasts first home run of season
Jose Altuve, 2B, HOU
4/22/2017
News: Altuve went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two runs and a stolen base during Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Already up to nine runs and seven stolen bases with a .304 batting average and .380 on-base percentage, Altuve is kick-starting 2017 as expected. His power outburst last year will likely prove to be tough to duplicate, but his ability to reach base, post a high-end batting average, touch home plate and steal bases make Altuve an elite fantasy asset.

Evan Gattis
Astros' Evan Gattis: Hits first 2017 home run
Evan Gattis, C, HOU
4/22/2017
News: Gattis went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI during Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Gattis has been seeing semi-regular playing time with 34 at-bats, and he's turning in solid results when given the opportunity. Currently sporting a .294/.415/.441 slash line with five runs and seven RBI, he's well on his way to a serviceable showing from the catcher position. It also might prove that a little more rest and duty as the designated hitter allows Gattis to be more efficient when he's in the lineup.

Dalton Pompey
Blue Jays' Dalton Pompey: Moved to 60-day disabled list
Dalton Pompey, CF, TOR
4/22/2017
News: Pompey (concussion) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Saturday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet reports.

Pompey opened the year on the disabled list with a concussion that he suffered in the World Baseball Classic. Moving him to the 60-day DL made room for Leonel Campos on the 40-man roster. Once healthy, Pompey is expected to be an outfield reserve option.

Analysis: 

Blake Snell
Rays' Blake Snell: Allows two solo homers in no-decision
Blake Snell, SP, TB
4/22/2017
News: Snell allowed three runs on three hits and five walks while striking out four batters over five innings during Saturday's win over Houston.

The sophomore wasn't sharp Saturday, and he's lucky the Astros didn't do more damage. Snell currently sports a 5.43 FIP and has just 15 strikeouts through 21.1 innings for the campaign, so he's likely lucky to be sporting a 3.38 ERA. Command also continues to be a problem, and he'll need to improve on his 13.9 walk percentage. Snell projects to face the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre next.

Melky Cabrera
White Sox's Melky Cabrera: Dealing with wrist injury
Melky Cabrera, LF, CHW
4/22/2017
News: Cabrera (wrist) left Saturday's game as a precautionary measure and is day-to-day with a wrist injury.

After leaving the game, Cabrera received X-rays to determine whether or not his wrist was fractured. Fortunately, the X-rays were negative, so it would appear that Cabrera avoided a significant injury. If the White Sox keep Cabrera out of the lineup in the coming days, look for Jacob May or Cody Asche to start in his place.
