Video notes for the pitching planner

-- The top three ranked players in Rotisserie rankings through Wednesday on CBSSports.com are Zack Greinke, Dan Haren and Johan Santana... Chad Billingsley is No. 5 and Yovani Gallardo is No. 7. Emack, I thought you said pitching isn't as important as hitting in Roto?!
-- The Tigers are having a revival this year. Even Justin Verlander pitched well his last time out.
-- Street closing again already? Emack, you're a genius!

Change of the week:
Phil Hughes for Chien-Ming Wang. We could have gone with Street again, but Hughes was just so darn dominant, he could cause more changes for the Yankees... which are...

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.
