Nobody ... I have two open roster spots due to DL. The issue is that it's only Monday and, after adding JD Martinez and Hector Santiago this morning to fill my other two empty roster spots (Upton/Crawford) I only have 2 moves left for the week. Will I be ok using one on Samardzija today and having one move left between now and next Monday? That burned me last week when Cozart was snatched before my moves reset...

With Hanley, you wouldn't have played Cozart anyways, right?
I don't know your rules?
If somebody goes on DL, can you replace them this week?

We have daily moves and 3 utility spots. What got me in trouble last week is that I used up my 4 moves too quickly, such that I was with an empty utility spot (nobody to fill in for BJ Upton). Every sunday night/monday morning 12am pacific time our moves reset each week, so I go in right at midnight and grab a few guys that I am afraid will be gone when I wake up Monday morn pacific time (late morning eastern time).

So yeah, basically still need to grab a SP to replace Fister who is on the DL. Samardzija seems like an option. Another avenue is to grab Aroldis Chapman to just provide some clean innings and k's.

i like guthie, he puts up real solid numbers and in the NL can do some real damage.
