Jorge Sosa - Relief Pitcher

Braves acquired RHP Jorge Sosa from the Devil Rays for 2B Nick Green.

A nice pickup for the Braves. Green received good reviews for his work last year, but he's just a reserve without much in the way of versatility or offensive upside. Sosa figures to be used a lot like Juan Cruz was last year. Pitching for the Braves gives him fantasy upside, but you should be able to hold off on picking him up for a few weeks.

Juan Gonzalez - Outfielder

Indians placed outfielder Juan Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

''He's frustrated,'' manager Eric Wedge said. ''He believes this is the best thing to do right now. It's a long season. We want to give him a chance to get back to 100 percent.'' Gonzalez last played on Sunday, so he'll be eligible to come off the DL on April 11. However, we wouldn't count on him being ready then.


Chin-Hui Tsao - Relief Pitcher

Rockies placed RHP Chin Hui Tsao on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 25, with right shoulder inflammation.

Tsao can return as soon as April 9, but the Rockies would be wise to be extra careful with him. While he's out, Brian Fuentes is probably the favorite for saves, even though he's had an awful spring. Scott Dohmann and Ryan Speier are also candidates to pitch the ninth. Byung-Hyun Kim will have to show something before he's trusted with any late leads.


C.J. Nitkowski - Relief Pitcher

Twins released LHP C.J. Nitkowski; reassigned RHP Willie Eyre to minor league camp.

A week ago, Nitkowski looked like the heavy favorite to claim Grant Balfour's rotation spot. Now it seems that Matt Guerrier will have that job. Nitkowski still didn't hurt his chances of getting back to the majors by allowing two runs in 13 1/3 innings this spring.
