Though initially thought to be just mild soreness, Drew Smyly (LHP, DET) finds himself back on the DL for the second time in a month. Top prospect Jacob Turner will take Smyly's slot, but how long will he be needed?

Ben Sheets (RHP, ATL) reportedly will make his first MLB appearance in two years on July 15, likely replacing one of ATL's inconsistent young starters, Randall Delgado (RHP, ATL) or Mike Minor (LHP, ATL).

Sheets has a strong skills history, though his Dom and Cmd faded in recent years as he battled a series of injuries.
