Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- Carlos Zambrano hopes to return July 4. Should we start this guy this week?

-- Mark Mulder, Ian Kennedy, Josh Johnson, Adam Loewen and Mike Hampton are on rehab assignments. When are these guys expected to be back and is there any value here?

-- Calendar turns to July and which pitchers should Fantasy owners worry about being traded? C.C. Sabathia, Erik Bedard, A.J. Burnett, Aaron Harang, Bronson Arroyo and Greg Maddux.

-- The A's have a potential All-Star in Justin Duchscherer. Can he keep this up?

Video notes for Pitching Planner

-- Smoltz out for the season, Soriano likely closer with Acosta/Gonzalez as his double-barrel setup men
-- Joel Zumaya just needs back-to-backs before returning... he could be the Tigers closer before July now .. Rodney also coming back
-- Joba's disappointing debut. You expected too much, it will get better
-- Pedro Martinez had a better (re)debut than Joba... can he be a trustworthy Fantasy ace?

Week 2 Pitching Planner Video notes

Injury news
-- Randy Johnson ready for two-start return
-- A's shuffle: Justin Duchsherer to DL; Chad Gaudin off the DL; Harden moved back; Greg Smith -- one of D-Backs prospect received for Haren -- coming up.
-- Garza to DL; Jeff Niemann likely to get the call.
-- Liriano is not quite ready and will need at least one more Triple-A outing. If Kevin Slowey (biceps) cannot go Sunday, then the Twins could turn to Phil Humber or Kevin Mulvey, two of the pitchers received from the Mets for Johan Santana.
-- Yovani Gallardo is targeting an April 19 return; Dave Bush, Manny Parra or Carlos Villanueva will get taken out of rotation.
