  • Frazier draws three walks, steals two bags
    Todd Frazier went 0-for-1 in Monday's win over the Brewers, drawing three walks, stealing two bases, and scoring three runs.

    Advice: Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson battled his control, responsible for two of Frazier's three walks on the evening. Frazier is now up to three steals on the season while hitting .250/.358/.529 with five home runs, 14 RBI, and 15 runs scored. He enjoyed a 20/20 season in 2014 and could be on his way to a repeat performance this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Fister struggles again, Nats lose to Braves
    Doug Fister's struggles continued as he yielded five runs (four earned) in 5 2/3 innings in an 8-4 loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Fister held the Braves to two runs over his first five innings, but he contributed to a three-run sixth inning to end his evening. He allowed 10 hits, walked two, and struck out three in the effort. He has allowed five runs in back-to-back starts. Fister will attempt to rebound in New York when he takes on the Mets in his next start. He owns a 3.28 ERA with a 1.46 ERA and a mediocre 11/9 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Moustakas catalyzes Royals with a 4-hit game
    Mike Moustakas enjoyed a four-hit night in Monday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Moustakas came to the plate five times, singling twice and doubling once. His seventh-inning RBI single provided the Royals an insurance run and sparked what turned out to be a three-run inning. The 26-year-old has posted subpar numbers since entering the league in 2011, but has hit quite well to begin the season. He's batting .342/.419/.526 with three home runs and seven RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Sandoval knocks in three runs before exit
    Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-2 with a two-run single and a solo home run in Monday's victory versus the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Sandoval brought the Red Sox back within one run with a two-RBI single in the bottom of the first inning. He added a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth to make it a 5-3 game at the time. Sandoval, who has homered on consecutive days now, left after five innings due to neck soreness. He's hitting .294/.392/.412 with two home runs and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Murphy swats a go-ahead three-run homer
    Daniel Murphy helped push the Mets to victory, slugging a ninth-inning three-run home run as his team topped the Marlins on Monday.

    Advice: Murphy entered the frame 0-for-3, appearing to extend what has been a season-long slump. However, he got around on a Steve Cishek offering with two men on base to put the Mets up 3-1 in the top of the ninth. Murphy has two home runs, 14 RBI, and a .174/.247/.333 triple-slash line on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Freddie Freeman ejected from Monday's game
    Freddie Freeman was ejected from Monday's game versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Freeman tossed his helmet and might have said something to home plate umpire Bill Welke after striking out swinging to end the fifth inning. Welke didn't immediate eject Freeman, but it was Chris Johnson taking Freeman's spot at first base to start the sixth. Rotoworld.com

  • Pablo Sandoval leaves game with sore neck
    Pablo Sandoval left Monday's game versus the Blue Jays with neck soreness.

    Advice: It's not clear how Sandoval suffered the injury, but the Red Sox should provide more on his status after the game. Sandoval had a two-RBI single and a solo homer before exiting. Rotoworld.com

  • Ottavino (triceps) placed on disabled list
    Rockies placed RHP Adam Ottavino on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 26, with right triceps inflammation.

    Advice: It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but obviously it's good news that he appears to have no structural damage. John Axford picked up a save last week while Ottavino was unavailable and looks like the guy to own in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Tanner Scheppers optioned to Triple-A
    Rangers optioned RHP Tanner Scheppers to Triple-A Round Rock.

  • Brown (Achilles) could be sent to Triple-A
    Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated Monday that it's possible Domonic Brown (Achilles) could be sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley once activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I don't know that he's ready (to face major league pitching)," Sandberg said of Brown, who is hitting just .188/.298/.292 on his rehab assignment. The Phillies must do something with the outfielder, as his rehab clock runs out after Tuesday. It's hard to believe they wouldn't think Brown is a better option than Jeff Francoeur in right field, but it wouldn't be the first time Philly has made an odd decision. Rotoworld.com

  • Wainwright to have Achilles surgery this week
    Adam Wainwright will undergo season-ending surgery on Thursday after an MRI confirmed that he suffered a torn left Achilles tendon on Saturday.

    Advice: The operation carries a 9-12 month rehab schedule, although Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that he was optimistic the right would be ready for spring training. Wainwright, who will turn 34 in August, has three years remaining on his contract after 2015. The Cards will go with either Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney as his replacement in the rotation for now, but Marco Gonzales (shoulder/pectoral) is expected back soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Heyward (hamstring) sitting out on Monday
    Jason Heyward (hamstring) is not in the Cardinals' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Heyward revealed that he actually tweaked his left hamstring -- not left groin as previously reported -- on Sunday. The good news is that he expects to go through full workouts Monday and there would seem to be a good chance he'll be back out there Tuesday.. Mark Reynolds is getting a start in right field in Heyward's place Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Jackson sitting out on Monday
    Austin Jackson is not in the Mariners' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It appears to just be a day of rest. Logan Morrison is also on the bench for the M's, as Justin Ruggiano is in center field and Willie Bloomquist is at first base. Rotoworld.com

  • Parnell (elbow) to resume throwing Thursday
    Bobby Parnell (elbow) is planning to resume throwing off flat ground on Thursday.

    Advice: Parnell was shut down for a week with some renewed discomfort in his surgically-repaired right elbow, but it doesn't sound like it was a significant setback. He's on track to debut at some point in mid-to-late May and could quickly be pitching in high-leverage situations for the Mets. Rotoworld.com

  • Jennings (knee) not in Rays' lineup Monday
    Desmond Jennings (knee) is out of the Rays' starting lineup again on Monday.

    Advice: Jennings tweaked his left knee on Saturday night and has now missed two straight games, but it's not thought to be serious. It's possible he could be available off the bench Monday. Brandon Guyer is in left field for the Rays Monday versus Yankees righty Adam Warren. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays transfer Jaso (wrist) to the 60-day DL
    Rays transferred C John Jaso from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Jaso injured his left wrist on a slide into third base during the Rays' season-opening game April 6 against the Orioles. It was initially called a contusion, but it's clearly much more serious than that. He won't be eligible for activation until early June. Rotoworld.com

  • Daniel Murphy plates two in losing effort
    Daniel Murphy went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday night.

    Advice: Murphy also drew a walk, reaching base safely in three of his four plate appearances. He has struggled mightily in the early going, slashing a mere .169/.247/.292 with one homer and 11 RBI. Hopefully this strong night finally gets him rolling. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman doubles twice in loss to PHI
    Freddie Freeman hit a pair of doubles in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Freeman finished the contest 2-for-4 with the two doubles and a run scored. He's now hit five doubles on the season. In every area but average, Freeman's been producing in the early going, as he has four home runs, eight RBI and 11 runs scored to go with a .235/.307/.485 batting line. Given that he hit .288 last season and .319 in 2013, that average isn't likely to stay low for long. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Heyward (groin) listed as day-to-day
    Jason Heyward is considered day-to-day with a left groin injury.

    Advice: Heyward suffered the injury during Sunday's game against the Brewers while chasing down a ball in the outfield. He tested things out with some jogging and looked OK, but the Cardinals decided to be cautious here. Consider the outfielder day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:58 pm
  • Jason Heyward exits game with leg injury
    Jason Heyward left Sunday's game versus the Brewers with an apparent left leg injury.

    Advice: Heyward tweaked something while chasing after a ball in the right-field corner. He tested things out with some jogging and looked OK, but the Cardinals decided to go ahead and pull him just to be safe. The club should have an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo confirms Waino (Achilles) likely done
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak confirmed in an interview on KMOX 1120 AM on Sunday that Adam Wainwright (Achilles) is likely done for the season.

    Advice: "I would imagine that with this injury he will not pitch again this season, but we want to wait for the reports Monday," the GM said. It's confirmation of an earlier report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal as well as what others had speculated. Losing Wainwright is obviously a major hit to the Cards as they seek their third straight division title and fifth straight playoff appearance. Rotoworld.com

  • Adam Wainwright (Achilles) placed on DL
    Cardinals placed RHP Adam Wainwright on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle and Achilles injury.

    Advice: Wainwright will undergo an MRI on Monday, but the feeling is that he blew out his Achilles on Saturday and will need season-ending surgery. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney are the most likely options to take his spot in the rotation later this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond Jennings (knee) not in lineup Sunday
    Desmond Jennings (knee) is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Jennings tweaked his left knee during Saturday's game. It doesn't appear to be a major concern at this point, but it's also unclear when he might be ready to return to the lineup. The Rays are going with Brandon Guyer in left field, Kevin Kiermaier in center and Steve Souza in right on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:13 am
  • Report: Waino (Achilles) likely done for 2015
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the "expectation" is that Adam Wainwright will miss the rest of the season with a left Achilles injury.

    Advice: He's yet to undergo an MRI (that comes Monday), but the Cardinals don't appear to be optimistic about a diagnosis. It's obviously a massive blow for St. Louis, as Wainwright had allayed some concerns about his elbow with a strong start (1.44 ERA) to the season. The club does at least have some depth to fall back on with Marco Gonzales at Triple-A, although he's currently out with a shoulder/pectoral issue. Gonzales and Jaime Garcia (shoulder) are the likely long-term options to replace Waino in the rotation, but for now the club is likely to go with Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney. They could also consider moving Carlos Villanueva from the bullpen to the rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Jackson goes 2-for-5, homers
    Austin Jackson went 2-for-5 and hit his second homer Saturday against the Twins.

    Advice: Jackson was homerless in his first 65 games in Seattle before hitting two in the last six. We still harbor serious doubts that he'll prove to be a quality leadoff man for the Mariners this year, but at least things are looking up from last year's dreadful results. Rotoworld.com

  • Wainwright: 'Thought I got hit by something'
    Adam Wainwright acknowledged after Saturday's game that the injury is to the back of his left ankle.

    Advice: In other words, it's his Achilles tendon. And if he ruptured it, the ace right-hander could be done for the rest of the 2015 season. "I thought I got hit by something," said Wainwright, who pulled up lame after a fifth-inning pop-out on Saturday night in Milwaukee. "If you look at the replay, I get out of the box and I looked back to think the catcherÂ’s mask must have hit me or the bat must have hit me, something must have hit me." Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond Jennings exits with sore knee
    Desmond Jennings left Saturday's game with left knee soreness.

    Advice: Kevin Kiermaier took over for Jennings in center field to begin the eighth inning. Jennings went 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts before exiting. He's day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:06 pm
  • Waino leaves with apparent Achilles injury
    Adam Wainwright was lifted from Saturday's game against the Brewers with an apparent left foot injury.

    Advice: Wainwright pulled up lame on his first step out of the batter's box following a fifth-inning pop-out and could barely make his way off the field. It looked like an Achilles injury, though the Cardinals are calling it a "left ankle injury" for now. Wainwright had tossed four scoreless innings against Milwaukee, lowering his season ERA to 1.44. He'll be reevaluated back in St. Louis. Rotoworld.com

  • Domonic Brown nearing return to Phillies
    Domonic Brown (Achilles) said Friday that he feels "outstanding" health wise as he nears his return to the Phillies next week.

    Advice: Brown has been on an extended minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Lehigh Valley where he has gone 3-for-24 with three walks and five strikeouts. The Phillies wanted him to get as many at-bats as possible to get his timing back before rejoining the big league club. His last game with the Iron Pigs should be Sunday or Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Heyward smacks second homer of season
    Jason Heyward hit his second home run of the season in Friday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: The third inning home run off of Matt Garza would be Heyward's only hit, as he finished 1-for-5. Heyward has struggled with his new team, but he's shown signs of life over the last three games, recording hits in each of them. He'll have to continue the recent trend if he wants to continue hitting second. Outside of a 27-homer campaign in 2012, Heyward has never hit more than 18 home runs in a season. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:28 pm
  • Bobby Parnell (forearm) shut down for a week
    Bobby Parnell (elbow) will be shut down for the next week due to forearm soreness.

    Advice: The Mets don't appear to be overly concerned at this point, but Parnell's velocity has been down and he's been knocked around in his three rehab outings, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over 2 2/3 innings. Obviously, he's not going to rejoin the big club's bullpen anytime soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Ottavino dealing with minor triceps soreness
    Adam Ottavino is currently dealing with slight soreness in his lower triceps.

    Advice: The Rockies said that Ottavino was unavailable on Thursday due to general soreness, and now the area for concern is known. John Axford filled in admirably in a save chance Thursday and would stand to benefit the most if Ottavino was forced to miss any significant amount of time. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Heyward goes 2-for-4 against Nats
    Jason Heyward went 2-for-4 on Thursday, giving him his first multihit game since he went 3-for-5 on Opening Day.

    Advice: Heyward's .213 average would be less of a problem if he were drawing his typical number of walks, but he's worked just one in his first 61 at-bats. The Cardinals are winning and can stay patient, but at some point, they might decide they'd be better off with Kolten Wong hitting second. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:41 pm
  • Murphy's 4 RBI send Mets to 11th straight win
    Daniel Murphy knocked in four runs as the Mets earned their 11th consecutive win Thursday versus the Braves.

    Advice: Murphy went 2-for-3 with a walk on the afternoon. He unloaded the bases with a double in the first inning to put the Mets up 3-0, then added an RBI single in the seventh, padding the Mets' lead to 6-3. It was a rare positive day at the dish for Murphy, who has struggled to begin the season. He's hitting .170/.250/.283 overall with one home run and five RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Adam Ottavino records victory in relief
    Adam Ottavino notched the win in relief after the Rockies came back to beat the Padres 5-4 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ottavino worked a perfect ninth in a tie game before Daniel Descalso won it in the bottom of the ninth. Ottavino is off to a ridiculous start, with just one hit allowed and 12 strikeouts in 8 1/3 scoreless innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Fister hit around by the Cardinals in a loss
    Doug Fister was hit around by the Cardinals in a no-decision on Wednesday, surrendering five runs (four earned) in six innings.

    Advice: Fister, not known for being homer-prone, allowed two long-balls in the outing. Matt Carpenter clubbed a solo shot to lead off the game, and Kolten Wong added a two-run jack in the second. All told, Fister yielded seven hits and two walks while striking out three. It's a small bump in the road as Fister has otherwise been excellent and should be quite solid over the course of the season. He'll head into his next road start against the Braves with a 2.37 ERA.

  • Frazier launches grand slam, Reds score 16
    Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and three runs scored as the Reds outlasted the Brewers 16-10 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Frazier's fourth inning blast was part of a historic night, as the teams tied a record with three grand slams in one game. Frazier walked twice to go along with his two hits, and his three runs scored gives him 11 runs on the year. The 29-year-old has picked up where he left off last year, at least in the power department, as Frazier now has four homers and 13 RBI to go with a .250/.317/.518 line in the team's first 14 games.

  • Moustakas' three RBI lead Royals past Twins
    Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Royals came back to edge the Twins 6-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Moustakas hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning, his third of the season, before driving in the game-winning run with an RBI single in the eighth. He's got just five RBI on the year but has scored 13 runs through 14 games while batting mostly in the No. 2 spot in the Royals' lineup. Carrying over a wonderful 2014 postseason, the third baseman is now hitting .327/.413/.545 on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Brown (Achilles) to use full rehab allotment
    Domonic Brown (Achilles) is expected to use his full 20-day allotment during his rehab assignment.

    Advice: Brown hasn't had issues with his left Achilles, but he's not hitting much so the Phillies plan to leave him at Triple-A Lehigh Valley in hopes that he figures things out. "It's kind of up to him when he finds his stride to get hot with the bat," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "I think that would be important for him." Brown's 20th rehab day is next Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Sandoval not in Red Sox lineup on Monday
    Pablo Sandoval is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday morning against the Orioles.

    Advice: Sandoval battled a left foot bruise late last week, so he'll be on the bench rather than in the starting lineup for Boston's annual Patriots' Day game. The 28-year-old third baseman is hitting .289/.385/.311 with zero homers and four RBI through 11 games with his new club. Brock Holt is starting at the hot corner Monday and batting seventh.

  • Wainwright outstanding in victory over Reds
    Adam Wainwright was outstanding in Sunday's victory over the Reds, allowing just one run on seven hits over eight strong frames.

    Advice: Wainwright punched out four on the evening while walking two. The only damage against him came on a two-out bloop RBI single off the bat of Brandon Phillips in the third inning. He went toe-to-toe with Mike Leake who was terrific on the other side as well and was eventually able to scratch out the win. He'll carry an impressive 1.71 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 14/3 K/BB ratio into Saturday's matchup against the Brewers in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Jackson launches first homer in win
    Austin Jackson launched his first home run of the season on Sunday, helping to propel the Mariners to a victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: Jackson led off the game by depositing a Ross Detwiler offering into the seats in left-center. He also collected a pair of singles, finishing the afternoon 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and two RBI. With the three-hit attack, Jackson is now hitting .277/.333/.362 with a homer and two RBI. He has also yet to steal a base after vowing to run more this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Jennings continues to struggle in loss to NYY
    Desmond Jennings went 0-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Jennings was far from the only one scuffling in the contest, as the Rays as a team collected just three hits. He's off to a slow start in 2015 and is currently hitting just .195/.306/.195. In 41 at-bats, he has just eight hits, none for extra bases. Jennings isn't as bad a hitter as the early season numbers say, but the once-heralded prospect has yet to put together the kind of power-speed season that scouts envisioned for him. To this point, his season-best for home runs was 14 in 2013 and his season best for steals was 31 in 2012. His steal totals have dropped each of the last three seasons. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 18, 8:32 pm
  • Heyward connects for solo HR vs. Reds
    Jason Heyward connected for a solo homer Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: It was his first home run of the season and his only hit in four at-bats on Saturday. Hitting .227 through 10 games, Heyward is off to a slow start with his new team, but this isn't something out of the ordinary. He came into Saturday's action with a .729 OPS between March and April for his career. Things should get better as the calendar flips to May and beyond. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman homers again as Braves fall to Jays
    Freddie Freeman homered for the second consecutive game in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    Advice: Freeman entered with terrific lifetime numbers against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and delivered a two-run bomb off the veteran right-hander in the third inning. Freeman finished the day 2-for-4 and is now hitting .256/.319/.581 with four long balls and eight RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Sandoval reaches twice in return to lineup
    Pablo Sandoval (foot) went 1-for-2 and drew a walk in his return to the Red Sox lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Sandoval had been sidelined since leaving Tuesday's game with a bruised left foot after being drilled by a pitch. He's off to a terrific start to his Red Sox career, hitting .316/.409/.316 in the early going. Rotoworld.com

  • Freddie Freeman's two-run blast powers Braves
    Freddie Freeman's two-run homer in the eighth inning on Friday powered the Braves to an 8-7 victory over the visiting Blue Jays.

    Advice: At the time, Freeman's blast off southpaw Brett Cecil increased the Braves advantage to 8-5, but after a late rally by the opposition it would prove to be the difference in the ballgame. Freeman finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .231/.286/.513 with three bombs and six RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Murphy has RBI double against Marlins
    Daniel Murphy had an RBI double in a win over the Marlins on Friday.

    Advice: It was the only hit of the night for Murphy, who is now batting just .162 (6-for-37) through 11 games. Remember that he missed a large chunk of spring training with a hamstring injury, so it might take him a little while to get into the swing of things. Things should get a lot better soon.

    Advice: Rays manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday that the swelling has not gone down in Jaso's wrist, thus the reason for him still not being able to wear a glove yet. He's eligible to return from the disabled list next Wednesday but seems unlikely to be ready at that time. Rotoworld.com

  • Parnell's (elbow) velocity down in rehab
    Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Bobby Parnell (elbow) was throwing 89-93 mph in his second rehab appearance with High-A St. Lucie on Thursday.

    Advice: Rubin adds that his lone 93 mph offering came on his final pitch of the night in an outing where he allowed a double, triple and walk and was charged with two runs in an inning of work. The report also says that Parnell was throwing 91-92 mph in his first rehab appearance. Parnell's fastball averaged 95.0 mph in 2013 and occasionally reached the upper-90s. It's certainly possibly that the velocity picks up in time, but don't expect him to challenge Jeurys Familia for the closer job anytime soon. Rotoworld.com
