 Blake Treinen, who hasn't pitched since April 8th due to right shoulder inflammation, is opting to rehab his injury rather than undergo surgery. He will be sidelined until at least the All-Star break, according to manager Dave Roberts, who is hopeful to have his best reliever back for the stretch run.

Notes 
  Matz had a surprisingly effective year despite moving to the AL East and Toronto, pitching 150 2/3 innings with a 3.82 ERA. We know what he is by now in his career - a strikeout rate that won't hurt you, a decent walk rate that isn't enough to keep his WHIP in check, and a ceiling of about 160 innings. Moving to St. Louis is a great thing for him, however, as he'll benefit from the Cardinals' excellent infield defense (Matz has a 47.1% ground ball rate). But he's essentially a replacement level fantasy starter at this point, and entering his age-31 season, we're probably not going to see much growth.
