Machado begins baseball activities: Orioles prospect Manny Machado is expected to resume baseball activities at the team's spring training complex in Sarasota on Thursday, reports MLB.com. He'll start a rehab program that will last less than a week, and then from there he'll be activated and back with Class A Delmarva. Machado had been sidelined since dislocating his left kneecap on May 5.

Fantasy Analysis
The 18-year-old shined in his first 25 games, boasting an impressive batting average (.333) and on-base percentage (.450) while racking up 13 extra-base hits. Consider him a solid Fantasy option in long-term keeper leagues.

Billy Hamilton, SS (CIN) has now 31 SB on the season for Dayton of the Midwest League. 8 in the last 3 games. Problem is, he's hovering around the .200 mark. Something to keep an eye on, but the speed is ridiculous.

With his speed all he needs to be is a slapper and not a K machine and he'll produce. Made some quality picks in place of him like Homer and Scott Baker, but would feel a lot better about my MLS if I'd have gotten him too.

His hitting style is similiar to Ichiro, I have a feeling someone is trying to tinker with his mechanics and not letting his use his athleticism as much as he should be using it. Or the opposite, nobody is trying to alter his mechanics to assure more contact on the ball. Either way, he's fast and he is stealing bases left and right.

IN other news, John Lamb was pulled for elbow discomfort or something to that effect. Hopefully its not serious.

Though they wouldn't say when he might be called up, the Blue Jays are pleased with the progress of top prospect Brett Lawrie.

Lawrie is hitting .335 with nine homers and 32 RBI for Triple-A Las Vegas. "I’m very pleased with how he’s responded to us asking him to be a little more selective in his at bats," said GM Alex Anthopoulos. "I’m more excited about him today than I was in April when he was hitting .430. When I look at a game report for Lawrie the first thing I look at is the number of pitches seen per plate appearance. When they’re not going to give him a lot to hit we need to see that he’s made the adjustment, and he’s starting to do that." It wouldn't be a surprise to see Lawrie sometime in June.

There's been talk that his defense is improving, so I expect to see him up soon.

Anybody want to share some thoughts about what to expect? More for this season, but long term as well. I've got him and Hosmer, plus Chisenhall, Machado and Wil Meyers in a keeper league but can't keep them all.

Lawrie is more valuable than all of them because of his position eligibility, I think Hosmer may have stronger numbers but at 1B it supresses his value a bit. I'm keeping expectations in check for this season, wouldn't expect end game numbers greater than Prado/Kendrick and there probably will be at least one prolonged slump in there, but every once in a while these hot prospects go Ryan Braun on us.

Amy Gutierrez of CSNBayArea.com reports that the Giants are calling up Brandon Belt from Triple-A Fresno.

The scenario was called a "longshot" by Giants manager Bruce Bochy just yesterday, but things have changed following the injury to Buster Posey. The roster moves aren't official yet, but Darren Ford and Posey are both headed to the disabled list while Belt and catcher Chris Stewart have been called up from the minors. It's not clear what role Belt with have this time around, but he's obviously worth monitoring in deeper mixed leagues.

Young to join Rockies Friday: The Denver Post reports Rockies 2B/OF Eric Young is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Colorado on Friday after the team designated infielder Jose Lopez for assignment on Thursday. Young batted .363 with 17 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 42 games with the Sky Sox.

Fantasy Analysis
Young has been tearing the cover off the ball in the minors and should compete for playing time immediately with the Rockies. He has been playing outfield at Triple-A but he should see time at second base with Jonathan Herrera. The 26-year-old has blazing speed and has shown the ability to hit for average so owners in deeper Fantasy formats should consider picking up Young, especially with the Dodgers and Giants on the schedule for Week 9 (May 30-June 5).

Scoring of note yesterday:

The Montgomery Biscuits (Tampa AA) made 8 errors yesterday. 8. That's an absolutely ludicrous number.

8 is a lot!

Texas has a lot of young arms in the minors. I grabbed High A prospect Joe Wieland in SSB. The kids numbers are video game like from a K/BB rate 24.6 :1

65 innings pitched
74 strikeouts
3 walks

He's gone at least 6 innings in his last 9 starts and I suspect he'll get bumped up a league soon.

Dodgers recall prospect Gordon: The Dodgers recalled SS prospect Dee Gordon prior to Monday's series opener against the Phillies in Philadelphia. Juan Castro was designated for assignment to make room on the roster. Gordon was not in the starting lineup posted for Monday's game.

Fantasy Analysis
Gordon, who has earned the nickname "Mr. Excitement" for his play in the minors, was hitting. 315 with 22 steals in 25 tries for the Triple-A Isotopes. Rafael Furcal is on the disabled list for at least another couple of weeks and we suspect Gordon will be in line for a good amount of playing time during that time frame. Otherwise, the Dodgers would have been better served to keep their young prospect in the minors. He doesn't offer any power, but think of him as a great source for steals in Rotisserie formats if he is not overmatched by major league pitching and is able to get on base at anywhere near the same rate he has been in the minors (.361 OBP).

Rumor has it that Charlie Blackmon will also be called up to take the place of Dexter Fowler.

Toss in we might have an Anthony Rizzo sighting soon as well.
