  • Carlos Gonzalez not in Rockies lineup Friday
    Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: It's just a regular day of rest for Gonzalez against opposing left-hander Robbie Ray. He's off to a nice start at the plate in 2016, slashing .310/.355/.529 with four homers and 12 RBI in 21 games. Rotoworld.com 58 minutes ago
  • Freddie Freeman homers in loss to Cubs
    Freddie Freeman singled and launched a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Freeman belted a 3-0 pitch from Jon Lester deep into the Wrigley Field bleachers in right field in the fourth inning. That got the scoring going, but the Cubbies rallied late with five runs in the eighth. Freeman is really starting to heat up, batting .444 with two homers over his last seven games.

  • Carlos Santana could play RF this weekend
    Indians manager Terry Francona said that he's considering using Carlos Santana in right field this weekend in Philadelphia with the designated hitter spot not available.

    Advice: Santana is out of the lineup on Friday, but he could give right field a shot on Saturday and/or Sunday. The 30-year-old did play the outfield a little bit in the minors but hasn't started a game there since 2008 when he was in A-ball. It could be an adventure. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm
  • Jarrod Saltalamacchia sitting out Friday
    Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the Tigers' lineup on Friday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Bobby Wilson is catching. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:53 pm
  • Sam Fuld (shoulder) moved to 60-day DL
    Athletics transferred OF Sam Fuld from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Sean Manaea. Fuld remains out indefinitely with a strained shoulder. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:52 pm
    60-Day DL

  • Giancarlo Stanton getting a day off Friday
    Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's just receiving a day of rest. The Marlins have Ichiro Suzuki in right field and in the leadoff spot in their first game without Dee Gordon. J.T. Realmuto and Adeiny Hechavarria are also getting breathers, as Jeff Mathis is catching and Miguel Rojas is at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:30 pm
  • Desmond Jennings sitting out on Friday
    Desmond Jennings is not in the Rays' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Jennings is hitless in his last 16 at-bats, so he'll get a breather to regroup. Brandon Guyer is in left field. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:37 pm
  • Pedro Alvarez getting a breather Friday
    Pedro Alvarez is not in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's getting a day off with the White Sox throwing southpaw Carlos Rodon. Mark Trumbo is in the designated hitter spot, and Joey Rickard and Nolan Reimold are in the corner outfield spots. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:14 pm
  • Devin Mesoraco sitting out on Friday
    Devin Mesoraco is absent from the Reds' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's been a rough start to the season for Mesoraco, who is hitting only .140/.218/.160 with no homers and one RBI. Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:06 pm
  • Marlins call up Cole Gillespie on Friday
    Marlins purchased the contract of OF Cole Gillespie from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Gordon, of course, just got popped with a PED suspension. Gillespie will need to be added to the 40-man roster, but they have an extra spot now because Gordon won't take up a spot during his 80-game suspension. Gillespie is a career .253/.309/.366 hitter over 427 plate appearances at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:43 am
  • Bochy plans to rest Posey more this season
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that he plans to rest Buster Posey more this season.

    Advice: "The plan really all year with Buster, probably, is to give him a few more breaks than what I’ve given in the past," Bochy said. Posey set career highs in games played and plate appearances last season, although he started 37 games at first base. He's been at first just twice so far this season and it sounds like he'll see more full days off rather than play first when he's not catching. While Posey's fantasy owners might not like him playing fewer games, it could be good for his production in the long run if it helps keep him fresher. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:30 am
  • Andre Ethier (leg) to be re-examined
    Andre Ethier will have his fractured right tibia re-examined on Friday to check the healing progress.

    Advice: Ethier was injured six weeks ago when he fouled a ball off his shin during a spring training game. He's still using crutches to get around and isn't expected back until June. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:53 am

  • Maybin (wrists, shoulder) to resume rehab
    Cameron Maybin (wrists, shoulder) will resume a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Friday.

    Advice: Maybin is working his way back from a hairline fracture in his right wrist and has had two setbacks when he was hit by a pitch on his left wrist and also when he hurt his shoulder on a dive. He's been alternating between playing center field and serving as a designated hitter, and Tigers manager Brad Ausmus indicated Maybin still isn't totally comfortable when throwing. "The bigger concern is being able to throw," Ausmus said. "He’s gotta play the field." Maybin will DH on Friday. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:26 am
    15-Day DL

  • Dee Gordon suspended 80 games for PEDs
    MLB suspended Dee Gordon for 80 games without pay for testing positive for performance-enhancing substances.

    Advice: Stunning late-night news. Gordon tested positive for exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol. The suspension is effective immediately. Gordon has turned his career around over the past two seasons and won the NL batting crown during his first season with the Marlins last year. The 28-year-old recently signed a five-year, $50 million extension with Miami, but the club will now be without him until after the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:24 pm

  • Stanton smashes solo home run late in win
    Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Dodgers.

    Advice: Stanton's solo homer off reliever Pedro Baez in the eighth boosted the Marlin lead to 5-2 and offered a nice insurance run in the process. The superstar slugger is now slashing .253/.352/.560 with seven homers and 18 RBI over 75 at-bats as April draws to a close. Even with the somewhat middling average, he is an elite power hitter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Matt Carpenter can't find hit in shutout loss
    Matt Carpenter went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: As a team, the Cardinals managed just three hits on the evening, so Carpenter shouldn't feel too bad for his struggles. He is slashing .241/.394/.456 with three homers, four doubles, a pair of triples and 16 RBI over hits first 79 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Freeman registers yet another multi-hit game
    Freddie Freeman stayed hot Thursday, finishing 3-for-4 with a walk in a win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: After an ugly start, Freeman has quietly improved at the plate in recent days. In his last six games, the first baseman is 10-for-23 (.434) with two doubles and two RBI. He's still not hitting the ball over the boards -- he has just two homers on the year -- but the power will come as he continues to get more comfortable at the dish. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 pm
  • Jennings strikes out three times in loss
    Desmond Jennings extended his hitless streak to four games, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts on Wednesday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jennings suffered through an injury-plagued season in 2015, so it's understandable that he'd have some rust to shake off. Still, a .194/.267/.269 slash line in 75 plate appearances will be tough to justify in the everyday lineup once May or June rolls around. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:22 pm
  • Posey getting day off Wednesday vs. Padres
    Buster Posey is getting a day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Trevor Brown will start at catcher and bat eighth versus Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner. A scheduled off day Thursday allows the Giants to get Posey back-to-back days of rest. He's slashing .264/.325/.417 with three home runs in 19 games this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:33 am
  • Stanton stings Kershaw for three-run homer
    Giancarlo Stanton hit a three-run home run off Clayton Kershaw in Tuesday's 6-3 win.

    Advice: Back-to-back RBI singles by Martin Prado and Christian Yelich had already brought home two runs against Kershaw when Stanton stepped to the plate with one out in the sixth inning. He did what sluggers do, turning a small inning into a big one and connecting for a three-run home run to center that traveled an estimated 425 feet. Yowza. Stanton's Marlins are treading water at 8-11, but that is through no fault of his own. He is slashing .246/.338/.536 with six homers and 16 RBI across 69 at-bats. With Tuesday's homer, he has now gone yard in three consecutive games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:45 pm
  • Giancarlo Stanton hits fifth homer in win
    Giancarlo Stanton homered, doubled and walked in the Marlins' 3-2 defeat of the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Stanton has yet to get hot, but he has five homers in 17 games anyway. No one else on the Marlins has more than two. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:21 pm
  • Freddie Freeman dropped to sixth Monday
    Freddie Freeman has been dropped to sixth in the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox.

    Advice: It's his first start out of the sixth spot since August 15, 2012. Freeman showed some signs of life by going 2-for-4 with an RBI double on Saturday, but he's batting just .177/.311/.258 through his first 18 games this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:02 pm
  • Gordon steals two bags, scores twice in SF
    Dee Gordon finished 2-for-5 with two stolen bases and two runs scored Sunday in the Marlins' 5-4 defeat of the Giants.

    Advice: In the third inning, Gordon singled, stole second and third base, and then scored on a Christian Yelich groundout. In the fifth, he singled, made it to third base on a Marcell Ozuna base hit, and then raced home on another Yelich grounder. Some of the peripherals have been underwhelming, but the speedy second baseman boasts six stolen bases and 10 runs scored in 17 games this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:30 pm

  • Cameron Maybin MRI shows no structural damage
    Cameron Maybin is expected to resume his minor league rehab assignment in five days after an MRI on his shoulder revealed no structural damage on Sunday.

    Advice: Maybin just can't seem to catch a break. He was days away from a return to the Tigers last Sunday when he was hit in the wrist by a pitch which set him back a few days. He had just resumed his rehab assignment over the weekend when injuring his shoulder while diving for a ball in the outfield. His return will be pushed back at least a week.

  • Cameron Maybin to have MRI on shoulder
    Cameron Maybin (wrist) will undergo an MRI on his shoulder after being injured on a dive during a rehab game with Triple-A Toledo on Saturday.

    Advice: Maybin was hurt while making a diving catch as he helped preserve a no-hitter for Toledo. The outfielder is over his right wrist injury, but he's had a couple setbacks with a hit by pitch on his left wrist and now the shoulder ailment. We'll obviously know more about his status following the exam. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:48 am

  • Desmond Jennings sitting out on Sunday
    Desmond Jennings is not in the Rays' lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: It's just a day off. Corey Dickerson is in left field for the Rays, while Logan Forsythe is in the designated hitter spot, Steve Pearce is at second base and Logan Morrison is at first. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:01 am
  • Freeman has RBI double in loss to Mets
    Freddie Freeman went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: The double was Freeman's first extra-base hit in a week, and he still hasn't homered since the season opener. He has been hitting better of late, going 9-for-33 (.272) in his last eight games. Freeman is too good of a hitter to be held down for long, so hopefully these recent developments are signs of better days ahead. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:40 pm
  • Matt Carpenter getting the day off Saturday
    Matt Carpenter is not in the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

    Advice: He's sitting out for the first time this year. Carpenter had a tough night Friday, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. He also committed his third error of the season. Jedd Gyorko will fill in at third base and bat seventh. Kolten Wong is hitting leadoff in place of Carpenter. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:44 pm
  • Saltalamacchia homers again as Tigers lose
    Jarrod Saltalamacchia clobbered his sixth home run of the season as the Tigers were destroyed by the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Saltalamacchia's solo shot in the fifth inning accounted for the club's only offense against Corey Kluber and company. He has been an extremely prolific run producer in the first month of the season, slashing .282/.364/.821 with six homers and 15 RBI. He's worthy of using in all formats at least until James McCann returns from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:11 pm
  • Maybin to resume rehab assignment Saturday
    Cameron Maybin (wrist) will resume his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Saturday.

    Advice: Maybin was nearing a return to the Tigers last week before he was hit by a pitch on Sunday which caused a minor setback. He's expected to play 3-5 games on his rehab assignment before being re-evaluated. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:32 am
    15-Day DL

  • Carlos Santana powers Indians past Tigers
    Carlos Santana clubbed a leadoff home run on Friday, powering the Indians to a 2-1 victory over Justin Verlander and the Tigers.

    Advice: Santana was hitting out of the leadoff spot for the first time this season as manager Terry Francona wanted to shake things up in an effort to generate more offense. Santana also doubled, finishing the night 2-for-4 to raise his season slash to .200/.305/.440 to go along with his three homers and nine RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:26 pm
  • Carlos Santana batting leadoff on Friday
    Carlos Santana is batting leadoff for the Indians on Friday.

    Advice: Manager Terry Francona admitted in spring training that he was toying with the idea, and now he's putting it into practice. Santana has never batted leadoff before and is an unorthodox choice for the spot given his lack of speed, but he makes plenty of sense given his career .364 on-base percentage. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:03 pm
  • Posey not in Giants' starting lineup Thursday
    Buster Posey is out of the Giants' starting lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Trevor Brown will start at catcher and bat eighth versus Arizona right-hander Shelby Miller. Posey went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and has an underwhelming .255/.328/.392 batting line in 14 games this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:23 am
  • Dee Gordon out of Marlins' lineup Thursday
    Dee Gordon is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Nationals.

    Advice: Derek Dietrich will start at second base and hit sixth versus Washington right-hander Max Scherzer. Giancarlo Stanton is also getting a day off for the matinee game. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:06 am

  • Stanton, Gordon off Thursday vs. Nationals
    Giancarlo Stanton is getting the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and hit leadoff and Marcell Ozuna will bat cleanup as the Marlins close out a series against the visiting Nationals. Dee Gordon is also out, with Derek Dietrich filling in at second base. Max Scherzer is on the bump for Washington. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:05 am
  • Mesoraco out of Reds' lineup Wednesday
    Devin Mesoraco is out of the Reds' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest for Mesoraco, who dealt with a sore quad last week. He was limited to 45 at-bats last season because of a hip injury. Tucker Barnhart will start at catcher Wednesday versus the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:46 am
  • Saltalamacchia homers in third straight game
    Jarrod Saltalamacchia stayed hot Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in a loss to the Royals.

    Advice: He's now homered in three straight contests and four of his last five. He's always had good power, but to say this was expected of a guy who has been with five different organizations since 2010 would be a lie. Fantasy owners will take it, though, and he'll continue to get at-bats with James McCann sidelined -- and maybe even when McCann comes back. The 30-year-old is batting .300/.364/.867 with five homers and 14 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Buster Posey starting at 1B on Tuesday
    Buster Posey is starting at first base Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: It'll be his first start there this season. He's batting third. Trevor Brown will catch Giants right-hander Matt Cain and bat fifth versus Arizona lefty Robbie Ray. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:25 pm
  • Maybin (wrist) should be ready in couple days
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Cameron Maybin (wrist) should be ready in a couple days.

    Advice: Maybin was forced from a rehab game Sunday at Triple-A Toledo after taking a pitch off his left wrist, but he managed to avoid a serious injury. He's on the disabled list due to a hairline fracture in his right wrist. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:13 pm
