SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Michael Pineda was added to the IL with knee tendinitis. With Pineda on the IL, Devin Smeltzer got the spot start yesterday. He gave up three hits in six innings with no walks and seven strikeouts. He is worth a look in fantasy. If he continues performing, he will most likely earn himself a spot in the starting rotation.
