  • Crawford hits two-run triple in win over Reds
    Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a two-run triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Crawford raced around the bases for a two-run triple in the seventh inning. The three-bagger was his fifth of the season. He also hit a pair of singles in the contest. For the season, the 29-year-old shortstop is slashing .275/.344/.433 with nine homers and 63 RBI over 342 at-bats. He has been an integral cog in the Giants machine this season.

  • Duvall crushes a pair of home runs in defeat
    Adam Duvall went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three total RBI in Tuesday's 9-7 loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Duvall hit a two-run shot off Matt Cain with one out in the sixth inning for home run No. 1, then followed it up with a solo blast in the eighth for home run No. 2. He was on-deck at the time Jay Bruce whiffed to end the game with a runner on in the top of the ninth. Bruce represented the tying run. These were Duvall's first two home runs since the All-Star break and give him 25 for the season as a whole. He owns a .247/.294/.545 triple-slash over 336 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Grandal rocks mammoth solo homer in win
    Yasmani Grandal went 1-for-3 with a long solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Grandal absolutely unloaded on a Chris Archer offering to lead off the seventh inning, hitting a moonshot solo home run to right. The tater was his 14th of the season. While that is a healthy home run total for a catcher, the 27-year-old backstop has struggled to do much else with the bat and is hitting just .211/.330/.430 over the course of 228 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Brad Miller notches RBI double in loss to LAD
    Brad Miller went 1-for-5 with an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Miller hit a run-scoring double off Joe Blanton in the eighth inning. The Rays would ultimately bring home two runs in the frame, but wouldn't score again as they fell by a score of 3-2. For the season as a whole, Miller has quietly put together a nice campaign, slashing .244/.292/.457 with 15 homers, 37 RBI and four steals over 324 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Reddick homers, drives in three to lead A's
    Josh Reddick went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Athletics past the Rangers 6-3 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Reddick hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning and added an RBI single an inning later. It was a nice little showcase for the 29-year-old, who has been the subject of trade rumors in recent days. His .296/.373/.442 line has certainly increased his value, as have his seven homers, 27 RBI, 30 runs scored and four steals this year. We'll know soon enough whether the big night was his last as a member of the A's. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Gallo shows off oppo power on first home run
    Joey Gallo hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: So it begins. Gallo muscled a Sonny Gray pitch to left-center in the fifth inning to get the Rangers on the board. It was his only hit in four at-bats, and he struck out in two of the four at-bats. That's a typical Gallo night, as he'll strike out plenty but he hits it plenty far when he makes contact. The power makes him fantasy relevant, but the propensity to swing and miss makes him a high-risk, high-reward player. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm

  • Crisp has RBI double, homer against Rangers
    Coco Crisp went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a solo home run in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Crisp got the scoring started with a solo blast in the fourth inning, and he capped it with his RBI double in the ninth. The homer was his eighth of the year and his first since June 26. The 36-year-old outfielder is batting .237/.304/.405 with 41 RBI, 40 runs scored and five steals through 80 games to date. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:52 pm
  • Semien hits 21st homer in win over Rangers
    Marcus Semien went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Semien connected for a solo dinger off Rangers starter Nick Martinez in the fifth inning, his 21st big fly of the year. That's easily a personal best for the 25-year-old, who will also set a new high for RBI in a season this year. Overall, Semien is hitting .236/.303/.460 with 49 RBI, 49 runs scored and nine steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Gennett stuffs stat sheet, Brewers roll late
    Scooter Gennett went 2-for-3 with three RBI, a stolen base and a run scored as the Brewers used a late surge to down the Diamondbacks 9-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: As he did seemingly all night, Gennett had a large part in the Brewers' five-run eighth inning that sealed the win. The second baseman got the scoring started in the inning with a two-run single, and he later came around to score. Gennett has been finding ways to contribute in recent days, and the 26-year-old is hitting .264/.319/.414 with nine homers, 33 RBI, 36 runs scored and six steals in 78 games overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Goldy has stolen base, two RBI versus Brewers
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Goldschmidt had RBI singles in the first and seventh innings, giving him 65 RBI on the year. That's good for eighth-most in the National League, and his 14 steals are ninth-best in the league. The most complete fantasy first baseman to come along in years, the 28-year-old Goldschmidt is batting .295/.412/.504 through 98 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Braun scores three times in win over D'backs
    Ryan Braun went 1-for-2 with two walks and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: As he's been all month and most of the year, Braun was an on-base machine Tuesday, and he made the D'backs pay each time he reached. He's now hitting .319 with 16 runs scored this month, but strangely just two RBI. The 32-year-old is also riding an 11-game hitting streak. It all adds up to a .324/.386/.520 line with 14 homers, 46 RBI, 50 runs scored and 12 stolen bases overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:28 pm
  • Perez has four hits, homer in win over Royals
    Carlos Perez finished 4-for-5 with a home run and three runs scored in Tuesday's lopsided win over the Royals.

    Advice: Every so often it seems that Perez will pull a huge game out of his hat, and Tuesday was another example. The backstop hit a solo homer off Royals starter Dillon Gee in the sixth inning, his fifth homer of the season, and he scored three of the Angels' 13 runs on the evening. The 25-year-old Perez is hitting just .221/.252/.357 despite these occasional flashes of brilliance. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Giavotella has three hits, three runs Tuesday
    Johnny Giavotella went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs scored Tuesday against the Royals.

    Advice: Giavotella also threw in a stolen base for good measure. The big night raised Giavotella's line to .267/.293/.390 with 28 RBI, 43 runs scored and four steals. It certainly had to feel good coming against his former team to boot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Calhoun has two hits, four RBI in win over KC
    Kole Calhoun went 2-for-5 with a double and four RBI in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Amazingly, Calhoun did his damage over four different at-bats. The outfielder hit an RBI double in the first inning before collecting an RBI groundout in the fourth, a sacrifice fly RBI in the sixth and another run-scoring groundout in the ninth. They all look the same in the scorebook, as they say, and his four RBI gives him 54 RBI on the year. The 28-year-old is hitting .283/.364/.431 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:07 pm
  • Valbuena leaves game due to hamstring strain
    Luis Valbuena suffered a right hamstring strain on Tuesday night against the Yankees.

    Advice: Valbuena pulled up lame while running to first base in the bottom of the second inning. Houston is calling him day-to-day, but a 15-day disabled list stint seems possible. That would open more playing time at third base for top prospect Alex Bregman, who served as the Astros' designated hitter on Tuesday after starting at the hot corner in his MLB debut on Monday.

  • Valbuena exits game with apparent leg injury
    Luis Valbuena left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with a right leg injury.

    Advice: Valbuena fell while running to first base in the bottom of the second inning. He looked to be in a good amount of pain as he limped to the home dugout at Minute Maid Park. Valbuena was starting at third base in this one, with top prospect Alex Bregman serving as the Astros' DH. Marwin Gonzalez moved to the hot corner and Jason Castro took over at first base.

  • Gallo at 1B and batting sixth Tuesday night
    Joey Gallo is starting at first base and batting sixth on Tuesday night against the Athletics.

    Advice: Mitch Moreland is at designated hitter and Jurickson Profar is starting at shortstop. Gallo will probably get the majority of his playing time at first base, with Moreland seeing a dip in action. The 22-year-old slugger was sporting a .939 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at Triple-A Round Rock. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:59 pm

  • Rangers promote 22-year-old slugger Gallo
    Rangers recalled INF/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Gallo has posted a .949 OPS with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in 70 games this season at the Triple-A level. Plate discipline remains an issue for the 22-year-old, but he has incredible raw power and could take on significant fantasy value if he finds a good offensive groove and regular playing time in Texas. Gallo has appeared in 23 games at first base and 33 games at third base this year with Round Rock. He played a lot of left field last year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:35 pm

  • Gennett hits one of four Brewers homers
    Scooter Gennett singled and ripped a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Gennett got the scoring going with a deep blast to center field in the first inning. It was one of four dingers the Brewers had on the night, as Jonathan Villar, Martin Maldonado and Andy Wilkins also went deep. Gennett has already tied his career high with nine home runs. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:08 pm
  • Paul Goldschmidt picks up three hits Monday
    Paul Goldschmidt picked up three hits in five trips to the plate in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: All three of his base knocks were singles. Goldschmidt was scuffling coming into this one with just two hits in his last 16 at-bats, but the three-hit night pushes his season line back to .294/.412/.506. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:04 pm
  • Crisp (neck) could play Tuesday
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said after Monday's game that Coco Crisp (neck) might be ready to play Tuesday.

    Advice: Crisp has missed back-to-back games due to neck soreness, but he was able to take batting practice Monday. Consider him day-to-day for now. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:46 pm
  • Luis Valbuena reaches four times
    Luis Valbuena went 3-for-3 with a walk Monday in the loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Valbuena reached base safely four times in four plate appearances. The rest of the Astros did so four times in 31 plate appearances in the 2-1 loss. That's why Valbuena won't be losing his starting job to Alex Bergman or Yuleski Gurriel this month. He'll sit against a lot of lefties, but he'll be in there at first base or DH against righties.

  • Crisp (neck) out again Monday
    Coco Crisp (neck) is out of the Athletics' lineup for the second straight day Monday against the Rangers.

  • Reddick (back) returns to A's lineup Monday
    Josh Reddick (back) has returned to the Athletics' starting lineup Monday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Reddick missed consecutive starts over the weekend due to back soreness, but he was able to play some defense on Sunday. It's not a major concern. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:44 pm
  • Reddick (back) plays inning of right field
    Josh Reddick (back) played an inning of right field Sunday in the A's defeat of the Rays.

  • Coco Crisp scratched with neck injury
    Coco Crisp was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to neck soreness.

    Advice: Crisp has a history of neck issues, although there's been no indication that this is more than a day-to-day thing. The A's put Yonder Alonso in the lineup in Crisp's place, moving Danny Valencia to right field and Jake Smolinski to center. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:06 am
  • Josh Reddick (back) out again on Sunday

    Advice: It sounds like a day-to-day type of thing. Reddick has posted a cool .295/.374/.433 batting line in 61 games this season and will be a big trade chip for the Athletics ahead of the August 1 non-waiver deadline. There is known to be interest from the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:19 pm
  • Angels recall Carlos Perez from Triple-A
    Angels recalled C Carlos Perez from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Perez was optioned to Triple-A earlier in the month when Geovany Soto returned from the disabled list, but is needed back due to the lack of catching depth. He was also stinging the ball at Triple-A, going 11-for-31 with five extra base hits since his demotion. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:23 pm
  • Coco Crisp breaks tie in 13th
    Coco Crisp singled in Ryon Healy in the bottom of the 13th for the only run as the A's beat the Rays 1-0 on Friday.

    Advice: It was Crisp's only hit of the night, but it came at a good time. He should be starting to lose playing time with the A's needing to go younger down the stretch, but Bob Melvin just can't give him up. He's batting .196/.268/.235 in 51 at-bats this month. He's led off 12 times for the A's in July and scored just twice. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:49 pm
  • Braun slugs solo homer in loss
    Ryan Braun slugged a solo homer and drew a walk in Friday’s loss to the Cubs.

  • Marcus Semien sitting out on Friday
    Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Danny Valencia is also sitting out, as the A's are going with Arismendy Alcantara at shortstop, Yonder Alonso at first base, Khris Davis in the designated hitter spot, Jake Smolinski in center field and Coco Crisp in left. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:46 pm
  • Yasmani Grandal battling stomach virus
    Yasmani Grandal was unavailable on Thursday due to a stomach virus.

    Advice: It's the same ailment that's kept Corey Seager out of action for three games. Whether either player is available to play on Friday in St. Louis remains to be seen. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:57 am
  • Cubs looking at A's outfielder Josh Reddick
    According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Cubs are "looking at" A's outfielder Josh Reddick.

    Advice: Morosi notes that Cubs president Theo Epstein drafted Reddick in Boston back in 2006. It's been a frustrating 2016 for the 29-year-old outfielder, who missed part of May and most of June with a fractured thumb, but he has been a productive hitter when healthy for going on five years and he's only owed about $3 million on his current contract. Reddick can become a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:43 am
  • Braun goes 2-for4 with three runs scored
    Ryan Braun finished 2-for-4, walked, stole a base and scored three runs on Wednesday.

    Advice: One of the hits was a triple. Braun spent a lot of time running around the bases tonight, which is a pleasing sight for his owners. All that running is a sign that Braun is fully healthy for once, and a fully healthy Ryan Braun can be a fantasy monster. He is batting .316/.373/.512 with 13 home runs, 44 RBI and 8 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:41 pm
  • Adam Duvall out of Reds' lineup Wednesday
    Adam Duvall is out of the Reds' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Braves.

    Advice: Jose Peraza will start in left field and bat seventh versus Atlanta right-hander Lucas Harrell. It's a routine day off for Duvall, who's sitting on 23 home runs and 64 RBI. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:38 am
  • Reddick hits cue shot walkoff single vs HOU
    Josh Reddick hit a walk-off, opposite-field RBI single to beat the Astros in the 10th inning of Tuesday night's 4-3 victory.

    Advice: Reddick didn't exactly scald the walk-off winner against Tony Sipp, but as the old adage goes, he just needed to hit it where they ain't. In this case, the Astros employed the shift when Reddick stepped to the plate. He proceeded to hit an opposite-field grounder that would have likely been gobbled up by Carlos Correa had the shift not been on. As is, the ball just squeaked through to score Marcus Semien. For the season as a whole, Reddick is slashing .298/.378/.439 with six homers and 23 RBI over 205 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:18 pm
  • Grandal connects for 13th homer against Nats
    Yasmani Grandal hit his 13th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: The dong was Grandal's first since a three-homer game leading into the All-Star break. He's got 38 RBI and 22 runs scored to go with a disappointing .208/.321/.429 line on the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:33 pm
  • Crisp in Monday's lineup
    Coco Crisp is in Monday's lineup against the Astros.

    Advice: The Athletics plan to give Jake Smolinski more time in center field, so Crisp hasn't played since Friday. He's hitting leadoff against right-hander Mike Fiers. Danny Valencia, who is also expected to take on a reduced role, is serving as the DH on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:24 pm
  • Rangers open to trading Joey Gallo for pitching
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports the Rangers are willing to trade Joey Gallo for a long-term starting pitcher.

    Advice: The Rangers have been talking to the Rays about acquiring one of their starting pitchers and Gallo, who was previously thought to be off limits, could be part of the return package if the two sides strike a deal. Gallo is still a power-hitting behemoth but he hasn't been able to crack the Rangers' lineup with Adrian Beltre occupying third base and Shin-Shoo Choo and Nomar Mazara blocking his path at corner outfield. The 22-year-old has hit .250 this year with 16 HR and 40 RBI in 216 at-bats for Triple-A Round Rock. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:44 am
