Tue, Mar 3rd
A.J. Puk (shoulder) could potentially resume throwing as early as Tuesday.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Mon, Mar 9th
  A.J. Puk (shoulder) has no timetable to resume throwing, which likely takes him out of contention for an Opening Day rotation spot.

Notes 
 The Astros are going to rely on Urquidy with Gerrit Cole's departure. I like James more, but Urquidy is safer.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Puk has no restrictions, but will the A's let him fly?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Urquidy seemingly has the fourth starter's role locked down, and he offers and intriguing pitch mix, with an above-average fastball and changeup, with a decent slider.It's unlikely that the soon to be 25-year-old will develop into a consistent fantasy starter given his inconsistency, but he certainly has enough upside, as he showed in the playoffs, to warrant rostering in all fantasy leagues.
