    Nick Ahmed (hip) is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup again Friday.

    Advice: Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that Ahmed is dealing with "hip issues," but he's expected to return on Saturday. Jean Segura will play shortstop while Phil Gosselin will start at second base. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:36 pm
  • Morales (shoulder) moving up to Triple-A
    Franklin Morales (shoulder) will continue his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Morales threw two scoreless innings with High-A Dunedin and will now test himself against advanced competition. The southpaw has been on the disabled list since the first week of the season due to shoulder fatigue. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:16 pm

  • May (back) to begin rehab stint Sunday
    Trevor May (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: May is scheduled to throw an inning on Sunday. The Twins might want to see him pitch on back-to-back days before activating him. The 26-year-old has been sidelined for about two weeks with back spasms. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:58 pm

  • M's call up RHP Roach from Triple-A
    Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Donn Roach from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Roach has posted a 4.26 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9 over 14 starts this year in Triple-A. The 26-year-old will provide some long relief help. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:55 pm
  • Domingo Santana (elbow) out through AS break
    Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Friday that Domingo Santana (elbow) has seen little improvement and will likely be sidelined through the All-Star break.

    Advice: Santana has been limited to just 18 games since the beginning of May due to a shoulder and more recently an elbow issue. He's already missed two weeks in his current disabled list stint and it doesn't appear he's close to resuming baseball activities, let alone make a return. In addition to the injuries, Santana sports a pretty disappointing .234/.347/.391 batting line this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:53 pm

  • Jorge Rondon designated for assignment
    Pirates designated RHP Jorge Rondon for assignment.

    Pirates activated RHP Juan Nicasio from the restricted list.

    Advice: Nicasio was away for about a week while dealing with a private family matter back in the Dominican Republic.

  • Rays acquire Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins
    Rays acquired OF Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: Arcia has hit only .240/.303/.429 over 967 plate appearances at the big league level, but he just turned 25 last month and has shown lots of power in flashes. He should see playing time in the corner outfield spots while Brandon Guyer (hamstring) and Steven Souza (hip) are sidelined, although both players are due back soon. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:58 am

  • MRI on David Peralta's back 'looked good'
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Thursday that an MRI on David Peralta's back earlier this week "looked good."

    Advice: Peralta was placed on the disabled list Monday with a lower back sprain, but the hope is that it's a "short stint," according to Hale. "It’s just a matter of letting the back calm down and get him back doing physical things and then baseball activities," the skipper said. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:11 am

  • Trevor May (back) to throw off mound
    Trevor May (back) will throw a bullpen session Friday.

    Advice: If it goes well, he'll be sent to Triple-A Rochester to begin a rehab assignment. May, who has been out the last two weeks with back spasms, has posted a 6.08 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 40/10 K/BB ratio over 26 2/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:49 am

  • Graveman limits Angels to two runs in win
    Kendall Graveman continued his recent turnaround with a nice effort in Thursday's win over the Angels, allowing two runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Graveman struck out just one, but other than a little two-run fourth inning, kept the scoreboard clean and clear of runs over his 6 2/3 innings of work. The 25-year-old right-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in each of his last three starts. Overall, he holds a 4.68 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 52/26 K/BB ratio across 75 innings. His numbers are trending in the right direction, but there is still work to do here. A road date with the Giants appears next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Jake Lamb launches two-run dinger in victory
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Oddly, while the Diamondbacks racked up 15 hits on the evening, they had just two of the extra-base species. Both came in the third inning, with Socrates Brito and Lamb each socking two-run home runs. For his part, Lamb has now homered four times in his last 10 games. He's hit to a strong .279/.360/.563 triple-slash with 17 doubles, 15 homers and 47 RBI over 240 at-bats. A trip to the All-Star Game is by no means a guarantee, but his numbers make him worthy of consideration at the very least. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Votto (flu) could be available off the bench
    Joey Votto (flu) could be available for Thursday night's game against the Padres.

    Advice: Votto is still battling the flu but was seen taking ground balls at first base before the game. There's a good chance we'll see Votto as a pinch-hitter later tonight. Votto got off to a sluggish start this year but has rebounded by hitting .338 this month with two homers and six RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:23 pm
  • Votto (flu) remains absent Thursday vs. Pads
    Joey Votto (flu) remains absent from the Reds' starting lineup Thursday night against the Padres.

    Advice: This must be a nasty flu bug, as Votto hasn't appeared in a game for the Reds since last Sunday. Adam Duvall will start at first base and Jose Peraza will play left field on Thursday night versus San Diego. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:31 pm
  • Joey Votto out again Wednesday due to flu
    Joey Votto (flu) is out again Wednesday.

    Advice: Votto came down with a stomach bug on Tuesday. Ivan DeJesus Jr. will start at first base and bat seventh Wednesday night against Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:44 pm
  • Franklin Morales (shoulder) set for rehab
    Franklin Morales (shoulder) has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Dunedin.

    Advice: Morales has been on the disabled list since the first week of the regular season because of left shoulder fatigue. He'll probably spend at least a full week (probably two) making appearances on the farm. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:48 pm
    60-Day DL

  • Nicasio will move to bullpen upon return
    Juan Nicasio will be in the bullpen when he returns from the restricted list.

    Advice: At least for a little while. Nicasio was excused from the Pirates on Saturday to deal with a private family matter back in the Dominican Republic. He'll return "sooner than later," per manager Clint Hurdle. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:36 pm

  • Joey Votto out of Reds' lineup on Tuesday
    Joey Votto is out of the Reds' lineup Tuesday due to a stomach bug.

    Advice: Adam Duvall will start at first base and bat fifth versus Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis. Votto might also have to sit out Wednesday's finale in Texas. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:55 pm
  • Jake Lamb slugs 14th home run of the year
    Jake Lamb slugged his 14th home run of the season Monday in the Diamondbacks' defeat of the Phillies.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the top of the first inning off Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson. Lamb had a massive four-game series in Philadelphia, going 9-for-17 with two homers and five RBI. He has a stellar .932 OPS and 45 RBI in 68 total games this year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:03 pm
  • Diamondbacks place David Peralta on the DL
    Diamondbacks placed OF David Peralta on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back sprain.

    Advice: Peralta missed a third straight game Sunday with discomfort in his lower back and wasn't making much progress on the side, so the Diamondbacks decided to go ahead and disable him. The hope is he'll be ready for activation when first eligible. Socrates Brito was called up from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding roster move. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:07 am

  • Jake Lamb stays hot with double and triple
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-5 with two RBI in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 defeat of the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Lamb drove in Paul Goldschmidt with an RBI double in the top of the sixth inning and then plated Goldy again with an RBI triple in the bottom of the ninth. He also went 2-for-4 with a home run on Saturday and 3-for-4 on Friday. The third baseman is enjoying a breakout season at age 25, now with a .917 OPS and 43 RBI in 67 games.

  • Wade Miley (shoulder) plays light catch
    Wade Miley (shoulder) played some light catch on Sunday.

  • David Peralta (back) could need DL stint
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Sunday that it's possible David Peralta (back) will need a stint on the disabled list.

    Advice: Peralta is missing a third straight game Sunday with a tight back, and Hale said that the club might be best off DLing the outfielder if it looks like he'll be out for a week or so. More could be available on Peralta's status later Sunday, but fantasy owners should have a contingency plan ready for this week. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:41 am

  • David Peralta (back) out again on Sunday
    David Peralta (back) remained out of the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's now sat out three in a row with tightness in his back. Brandon Drury is filling in for Peralta in right field. The D'Backs are also resting Welington Castillo, Jean Segura and Yasmany Tomas, as they have Chris Herrmann at catcher, Phil Gosselin at second base and Peter O'Brien in left field.

  • Pirates place Juan Nicasio on restricted list
    Pirates placed RHP Juan Nicasio on the restricted list.

    Advice: It's a private family issue, per Pirates manager Clint Hurdle. Nicasio was lit up for six runs over just 4 1/3 innings in his last start Thursday against the Mets, watching his season ERA rise to 5.83. It's not clear when he will return and what kind of role he will return to. The right-hander carries workload issues after throwing only 58 1/3 innings for the Dodgers in 2015. He's already up to 63 1/3 innings this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:16 pm

    Pirates purchased the contract of RHP Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Rondon was sporting a 1.91 ERA through 24 appearances this season at Triple-A, though he had walked 24 batters in 33 innings. The righty will pitch in mid-relief. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:10 pm

  • David Peralta remains out of D'Backs lineup
    David Peralta (back) remains out of the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Peralta sat out on Friday due to minor tightness in his back, and while he's feeling better on Saturday the club decided it's in his best interest to give him an extra day off. Look for him to return to the lineup for Sunday's series finale. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:50 am

  • Kendall Graveman goes seven strong
    Kendall Graveman pitched seven strong innings, allowing one run and three hits, Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: Graveman left with a one-run lead, but Ryan Madson let that slip away in the ninth. It's just Graveman's fourth quality start in 13 tries, and it's the first time he's gone seven full innings. He's still a possibility for some mixed-league value in the second half, but he needs to show more first. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:01 pm
  • David Peralta not in Friday's lineup
    David Peralta is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He'll have a seat with the Phillies throwing lefty Adam Morgan. Yasmany Tomas has slid over to right field and Peter O'Brien is in left. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:57 pm

  • Twins designate Arcia for assignment
    Twins designated OF Oswaldo Arcia for assignment.

    Advice: The Twins needed to clear a spot for Danny Santana, who is back after missing two weeks with a strained hamstring. The 25-year-old has struggled offensively this year, hitting just .214 with 46 strikeouts in 103 at-bats. He'll be sent to Triple-A if he clears waivers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:43 pm

  • Nicasio gives up six runs over 4 1/3 in loss
    Juan Nicasio allowed six runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Thursday.

    Advice: Nicasio was victimized by the long ball Thursday, as three of his seven hits allowed left the yard. He also walked two while striking out five. The 29-year-old has endured a difficult slide since a stellar spring, now owning a 5.83 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 63 1/3 innings. His next scheduled start is Tuesday against the Giants.

    Jake Lamb is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

  • Padres designated Sanchez for assignment
    Padres designated C Hector Sanchez for assignment.

    Advice: Sanchez wasn't playing much and the Padres wanted to give utility man Ryan Schmipf a chance in the major leagues. The Padres claimed Sanchez off waivers from the White Sox last month. Teams are always looking for catchers so Sanchez shouldn't have much trouble finding a new team. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:25 pm
