With Chien-Ming Wang back on the DL and no timetable for his return, the Yankees are without a fifth starter and have decided to hand the job over to former Cubs and Marlins starter Sergio Mitre. Mitre will get his first start Tuesday night against the Orioles.
In Triple-A this year Mitre is pitching impressively, allowing 40 hits in 45 innings with just five walks (1.00 BB/9). Mitre will not strike a ton of guys out—expect around a 6.50 K/9 rate—but if he can keep up his impeccable control and use his sinker to keep the ball on the ground (65 GB% in minors) he can be a successful major league pitcher. In AL-Only leagues he is worth a speculative add and in deeper mixed leagues if you are looking for pitching help—specifically in the wins category—Mitre is certainly worth a look.

I know myself and many other people have been expecting increased playing time for Seth Smith, well now the Rockies have officially announced the outfielder will get more playing time. Manager Jim Tracy told the Denver Post:
As we go from day to day, you have to look at situations and answer the question of who's the best offensive group to put out there to start the game, and right now, Seth Smith enters into that discussion every afternoon in my office. That's why you can't ignore him; you can't turn your head. We have to move on it, and I think every guy in that clubhouse realizes that.
Smith is currently batting .302 with 8 home runs, 34 RBI, and 3 steals and should be owned in all leagues.
