Street (knee) is making his 2017 Cactus League debut Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Coming off a 6.45 ERA during (surprise) an injury-shortened 2016, Street is battling for the closer role with Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey, among others. His body of work and name recognition may land him the job initially, but it's wise for fantasy players to remain skeptical, especially considering his health issues and the talent Bedrosian boasts when healthy.
Morrison went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Monday's loss to the Angels.
Morrison has had a breakout month in the power department with seven homers and 18 RBI through 18 May games. He sports a .248/.337/.538 slash line for the season, and with a 24.9 strikeout percentage, it'll probably be difficult for Morrison to show marked improvement in his batting average. Still, his 12 home runs, 32 RBI and 21 runs are high-end marks.
Gibson (1-4) allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks across five innings during Monday's win over the Orioles. He struck out five.
Gibson was sent down to Triple-A Rochester earlier this month in hopes of turning things around after a rough start, but Monday's outing wasn't all that inspiring. He allowed five runs on five hits in the second inning and another on an RBI double by Manny Machado in the fourth. Gibson struggled to throw strikes and was battered at times, but he was allowed to labor through five frames as his team remained competitive, before earning him the win in the latter innings. He now owns a ghastly 8.62 ERA through 31.1 innings in 2017 and seems likely to be headed back to the minors.
Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Monday's loss to the Angels.
The bomb was Dickerson's sixth during his current six-game hitting streak, as he continues to post elite May numbers. For the month, Dickerson has registered a hit in all but two games, and the heater has him up to 12 home runs, 23 RBI, 31 runs and a .345/.394/.644 slash line for the season. Counting on Dickerson cooling down is advised, but it would take a significant decline before it becomes a fantasy concern.
Odorizzi allowed just two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out eight batters over six innings during Monday's loss to the Angels. He didn't factor into the decision.
The eight punchouts were a season high for Odorizzi, and Monday's outing continued his strong run of starts to open the campaign. He sports a rock-solid 3.14 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 7.7 K/9 and is closing in on establishing himself as a matchup-proof fantasy option. Odorizzi lines up next for a road start against the Twins this weekend.
