News: Nieves (quad) was activated from the 15-day DL on Monday. Impact: Nieves will likely start a few games this week for the Phillies, but with Carlos Ruiz (concussion) expected to be activated Friday, Nieves will return primarily to a backup role. Regardless, it appears the days of consistent playing time for Cameron Rupp will be nearing an end. Nieves had a .259 batting average with one homer over 54 at-bats before going down to injury, and is really only an option this week in deeper and NL-only formats.(RotoWire, )
