  • Warwick Saupold suffers right groin strain
    Warwick Saupold suffered a right groin strain during an appearance Tuesday versus the Angels.

    Advice: Saupold yielded three earned runs on a walk and five hits during his two-inning outing. The right-hander will likely be placed on the disabled list Wednesday. Rotoworld.com 37 minutes ago
  • Pennington aggravates hamstring strain
    Cliff Pennington left Tuesday's game against the Tigers after appearing to aggravate his left hamstring.

    Advice: Pennington just spent 15 days on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain, and it looks like he might be headed back there. He suffered the re-injury while legging an infield single in the bottom of the seventh. Rotoworld.com 39 minutes ago

  • Gray manages quality start in win over Reds
    Jon Gray allowed three runs over six innings in a win against the Reds on Tuesday.

    Advice: On a night when the Rockies offense had its way, Gray was able to keep the Reds largely in check. Two solo home runs, by Joey Votto and Jay Bruce, were among the five hits Gray allowed, and he also walked three on the night. Still, it was a quality start for the right-hander, who now has five quality starts in his last six outings after a brutal beginning to the year. Because of that slow start, Gray still has a 5.76 ERA and 1.32 WHIP, but he's also got a 49/16 K/BB ratio over 45 1/3 innings. The 24-year-old should have another strong showing Sunday at the Padres.

  • Cain's four RBI help Royals outlast Rays
    Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored as the Royals slugged their way past the Rays 10-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cain hit a two-run homer off Rays starter Drew Smyly in the first inning and added a two-run single in the fourth. The multi-hit game was his 13th in the month of May, a month he is surely sad to see end. Cain batted .351 with six homers, 25 RBI and 18 runs scored in the month, giving him eight home runs, 33 RBI and 28 runs scored to go with a .295/.348/.456 line overall. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago
  • Ketel Marte (thumb) goes 0-for-5 at AAA
    Ketel Marte (thumb) went 0-for-5 in his first rehab game Tuesday with Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Marte served as the DH in this one, but he should begin playing shortstop by the weekend and he's due back on the Mariners' active roster next Monday. That's the first day he's officially eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list. Marte has been out since May 21 because of a left thumb sprain. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:35 pm

  • Dickerson has homer, four RBI in loss to KC
    Corey Dickerson went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dickerson launched a three-run blast off Royals starter Dillon Gee in the second inning to give the Rays a short-lived lead. The homer was his ninth of the season, giving him 24 RBI. Hitting homers has been about all the 27-year-old has been good for at the plate this season, as he's slashing just .204/.248/.454 in his first year with the Rays. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:32 pm
  • Morales connects for sixth homer against Rays
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Morales connected on a Brad Boxberger pitch in the sixth inning for a two-run shot, his sixth of the season. The multi-hit game was his first since May 14 as it's been a trying year for the 32-year-old, who's hitting just .193/.262/.330 through the season's first two months. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:30 pm
  • Hosmer records fifth straight multi-hit game
    Eric Hosmer finished 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Hosmer continues to punish the baseball, as he's now recorded five consecutive multi-hit games. In those games, the first baseman is 13-for-22 with three doubles, two home runs, six runs scored and 12 RBI. That's good. So is his .330/.376/.553 line overall. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:26 pm
  • Smyly shelled for 12 hits, eight runs by KC
    Drew Smyly was under siege Tuesday, allowing eight runs on 12 hits over four innings in a loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Smyly allowed two runs in the first inning and one in the third before the Royals struck for five more in the fourth. The start was the second subpar showing in a row for the southpaw, who has seen his ERA inflate from 3.54 to 4.77 in that span. There was some amount of luck in his early-season success, but this feels like an overcorrection. Smyly will look to bounce back Sunday at the Twins. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:23 pm
  • Brewers activate Will Smith (knee) off the DL
    Brewers activated LHP Will Smith from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Smith will join the Milwaukee bullpen on Wednesday after missing the first two months of the season with a torn LCL in his right knee. He was in a battle for closer duties with Jeremy Jeffress leading into spring training and that makes him a worthy stash in deep fantasy leagues, though Jeffress has pitched very well. Smith allowed just a hit and no walks while striking out five during his four-inning minor league rehab assignment. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:22 pm
  • Royals offense backs Gee to earn second win
    Dillon Gee allowed nine hits and four runs over five innings in a win over the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: On the plus side, Gee struck out seven compared to just one walk. The win was the second of the year for the right-hander, improving him to 2-2 with a 4.28 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 11 appearances (four starts). Gee will try to put together a winning streak Sunday at the Indians. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:20 pm

  • Carpenter has second straight four-hit game
    Matt Carpenter feasted on Brewers pitching again Tuesday, going 4-for-5 with a double, two triples, two RBI and four runs scored in the Cardinals' 10-3 drubbing.

    Advice: All Carpenter has done the past two days is go 8-for-10 with three doubles, two triples, two RBI and seven runs scored. The blistering two games have vaulted him to fifth in the National League in runs scored (36) and eighth in the league in RBI (35). The 30-year-old is hitting .272/.385/.543 on the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:14 pm
  • Brewers option David Goforth to AAA level
    Brewers optioned RHP David Goforth to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Goforth was lit up for four earned runs while recording only one out Tuesday night against the Cardinals. He has a 9.39 ERA in 7 2/3 innings this year with Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:08 pm
  • Lucroy keeps raking with homer, double
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-3 with a double, home run and two RBI in a loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lucroy hit a solo dinger off Cards starter Mike Leake in the second inning and collected another RBI on a sacrifice fly in the eighth. The 29-year-old has been on a tear of late, homering three times in his last five games with 11 RBI and four multi-hit games in that stretch. Lucroy is batting a healthy .299/.355/.531 with nine homers, 28 RBI and 28 runs scored overall. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:05 pm
  • Diaz has two hits, RBI, run against Brewers
    Aledmys Diaz went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Diaz has cooled from his torrid start -- it would have been nearly impossible for him not to cool to some extent -- but he's still got hits in six of his last seven games, with seven runs scored in that span. Even after falling off a bit, the 25-year-old is batting .330/.363/.545 with seven homers, 26 RBI and 36 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:00 pm

  • Marte (thumb) expected to return next Monday
    Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list next Monday.

    Advice: That's the first day he's eligible. Marte, who has been out since May 21 with a left thumb sprain, will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday. He's expected to play a total of five games through Saturday before rejoining the Mariners. The 22-year-old was batting .276/.307/.378 with five steals in 40 games prior to the injury.

  • Hosmer's blast leads Royals over Rays
    Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning to lead the Royals to a 6-2 win over the Rays on Monday.

    Advice: After Lorenzo Cain put the Royals in front with an RBI single, Hosmer took Erasmo Ramirez deep to put the game out of reach. Hosmer also singled and is now hitting a robust .323/.370/.547 with ten home runs on the season. He is on pace to bust his "every other year" cycle of good and bad seasons. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Matt Carpenter singles twice, doubles twice
    Matt Carpenter finished 4-for-5 with three runs scored Monday afternoon against the Brewers.

    Advice: Carpenter singled in his first two at-bats and then doubled to the right-field wall in his next two before striking out in the top of the ninth against Brewers reliever David Goforth. The brand new father has an .883 OPS with 14 doubles and 32 runs scored in 49 games this season for St. Louis. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm
  • Will Smith (knee) expected back Thursday
    Will Smith (knee) is expected to be activated Thursday.

    Advice: Smith joined back up with the Brewers on Monday in Milwaukee after making three minor league rehab appearances between High-A Brevard County and Double-A Biloxi. He'll throw a simulated game Monday before taking a couple days of rest. The lefty reliever has been on the disabled list since the end of spring training with a torn LCL in his right knee. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:20 am
  • Ketel Marte (thumb) nearing rehab games
    Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week.

    Advice: Marte was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 22 with a sprained left thumb. He expects to be activated when first eligible and would seem to be on track to meet that goal. "He’s swinging the bat," Mariners skipper Scott Servais said Sunday. "I think he’s going to hit in the cage with the actual BP thrower (early this week). ... That’ll kind of be the last test. If he gets through that, he’ll be ready to go out on the rehab after." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:29 am

  • Lorenzo Cain swats solo home run in win
    Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Cain opened the contest with an RBI double off Chris Sale in the first inning. He wouldn't strike again until the eighth. Entering that frame, the Royals trailed by a score of 4-2. Cain cut the lead to one with a solo homer off Nate Jones. His squad would ultimately score three runs in the inning to take the lead. The 30-year-old outfielder has notched multiple hits in six of his last 10 games and is slashing .292/.343/.443 with seven homers, 28 RBI and six steals across 185 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:37 pm
  • Lucroy shows off wheels with RBI triple
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-2 with an RBI triple and three total RBI in Sunday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Lucroy drove in three of the five runs the Brewers scored in the game, picking up a sacrifice fly in the first inning, an RBI single in the third and an RBI triple in the seventh. The 29-year-old backstop has now been good for at least a pair of triples in each of his last five seasons. He is hitting a sharp .292/.353/.509 with eight homers and 26 RBI over 171 at-bats as the calendar readies to turn over to June. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:10 pm
  • Cardinals intend to keep Aledmys Diaz at SS
    The Cardinals plan to keep Aledmys Diaz at shortstop after Jhonny Peralta's (thumb) return from the disabled list.

    Advice: The common thought had been that Diaz would move around to different infield positions after Peralta returns. But, while Diaz could play some second and third base, it sounds like the Cards intend to leave him at shortstop most days and move Peralta and Matt Carpenter around the diamond instead. Diaz has struggled defensively at shortstop this season but has been much better of late. "I feel like it’s going to create a fresh opportunity for us, but I also feel like given what you’re seeing out of Diaz at his age (25) you really need to see him develop at shortstop," general manager John Mozeliak said. "When you look at what he’s been able to do, seeing him hold that spot for the next five or six years is reasonable to think. We want to keep him developing and also figure out the right combination to win games. We need to have at least one player moving around. We need one of the veterans to say, ‘Hey, I’m willing.’" Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:15 am

  • Kendrys Morales (finger) returns to lineup
    Kendrys Morales (finger) is back in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Morales hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sprained right finger, but he took batting practice Sunday without any issues. He's in the designated hitter spot and hitting fifth against Chris Sale and the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:04 am
  • Aledmys Diaz sitting out on Sunday
    Aledmys Diaz is not in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's simply getting a day off. The Cards are also resting Yadier Molina, as they have Greg Garcia at shortstop and Eric Fryer behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:24 am

  • Cardinals activate Carpenter from paternity
    Cardinals activated 3B Matt Carpenter from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Carpenter left the club on Wednesday when his wife went into labor with the couple's first child. He'll return to the Cardinals starting lineup on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:03 am
  • Hosmer homers, drives in four vs. White Sox
    Eric Hosmer went 3-for-4 with a homer and a season-high four RBI in Friday’s 7-5 victory over the White Sox.

    Advice: Hosmer drove in a run with a ground out in the first inning and slugged a solo homer in the sixth before adding a go-ahead two-run single in the seventh. The 26-year-old has picked up the power production of late and is now batting .307/.359/.520 with nine homers and 27 RBI through 47 games. He has never hit more than 19 home runs in a season before, but he’s in good position to top that this year if he can stay healthy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:55 pm
  • Will Smith (knee) nearing activation from DL
    Will Smith (knee) is expected to make back-to-back appearances with Triple-A Colorado Springs before being activated from the disabled list.

    Advice: He's already made two scoreless appearances for High-A Brevard County, striking out four over three innings. It's looking like Smith could be activated early next week if he can get a couple games under his belt over the weekend. Working his way back from an LCL tear in his right knee, Smith isn't a bad roster stash for those mining for saves. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:19 am
  • Gray holds Red Sox to two runs in victory
    Jon Gray limited the Red Sox to two runs over 7 1/3 innings in a win Thursday.

    Advice: Gray allowed five hits and walked three on the evening, with David Ortiz' two-run homer in the first inning accounting for all the Red Sox' offense. Gray settled in after that, allowing just three hits and three walks while striking out six the rest of the way. The righty is 2-2 with a 5.95 ERA that doesn't tell the whole story, as he's pitched much better in the month of May save for one clunker against the Cardinals. Gray will face off against the Reds on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:29 pm

  • Diaz swats seventh homer in loss to Nationals
    Aledmys Diaz hit his seventh home run of the season in a loss to the Nationals on Thursday.

    Advice: The home run was Diaz' only hit on the night. The 25-year-old has started to come back down to earth after a torrid start to the year, but he still ranks sixth in the National League in hitting, fifth in runs and seventh in slugging. Diaz owns a .329/.359/.570 line with 25 RBI and 32 runs scored overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:59 pm

  • Carpenter (paternity) expected to return Saturday
    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said Matt Carpenter (paternity leave) will be back by Saturday.

    Advice: Carpenter left the team Wednesday after his wife went into labor. At most, he'll miss two more games. Greg Garcia was called up to take his place on the active roster. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:19 pm
  • Morales out with sprained middle finger
    Kendrys Morales will miss 3-4 days with a sprained right middle finger.

    Advice: Morales wasn't in the lineup Wednesday against Minnesota and now we know why. Brett Eibner will fill in at DH Thursday against the White Sox. Morales hasn't found his stroke yet this year. So far, he's hitting just .187 with five homers in 45 appearances. Maybe the time off will do him some good. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:07 pm
  • David Goforth called up in place of Capuano
    Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: He's taking over for Chris Capuano, who was placed on the disabled list with elbow inflammation. Goforth spent a couple weeks in the majors earlier this year, logging a 7.20 ERA over four outings. He's pitched to a 3.93 ERA in 13 appearances for Colorado Springs. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:06 pm
  • Drew Smyly gives up five runs to Marlins
    Drew Smyly yielded five runs in six innings Thursday in a loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Smyly had a 2.60 ERA and a 41/6 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings during April. In May, he has a 5.59 ERA and a 26/9 K/BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. We still feel pretty good about him as a mixed-league option, though. He'll face the Royals in Kansas City next time out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:20 pm
  • Matt Carpenter placed on paternity leave list
    Cardinals placed 3B Matt Carpenter on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Carpenter's wife went into labor with the couple's first child ahead of Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Cubs. He could miss the Cardinals' entire four-game series in Washington, D.C. Greg Garcia was called up Thursday in a corresponding roster move to provide infield depth. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:22 am
  • Dillon Gee takes loss Tuesday versus Twins
    Dillon Gee took a loss Wednesday after yielding six runs -- five earned -- in four innings versus the Twins.

    Advice: Not a good sign when Minnesota's punchless offense can post crooked numbers against you. Gee gave up two runs in the first inning, one more in the second, and then three more between the fourth and fifth. He watched his ERA rise from 2.90 to 3.86 in the matinee loss at Target Field. We'd expect the regression to continue. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:38 pm

  • Carpenter out Wednesday with wife in labor
    Matt Carpenter is out of the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday because his wife is about to have a baby.

    Advice: It seemed odd that the Cards would rest their best left-handed hitter against Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta. Now we have a good reason for the absence. Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth in the afternoon tilt at Busch Stadium. Kolten Wong will take a turn at leadoff. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:57 am
  • Matt Carpenter taking the day off Wednesday
    Matt Carpenter is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest. Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth for St. Louis in the afternoon game against Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta. Kolten Wong will fill in at leadoff. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:53 am
  • Cain's four-hit night propels KC past Twins
    Lorenzo Cain finished 4-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in the Royals' 7-4 win over the Twins on Tuesday.

    Advice: The stolen base was his sixth, and Cain also has six homers on the season. The 30-year-old has three doubles, a home run and six RBI during a modest six-game hitting streak, and he's now put together four consecutive multi-hit games. The good stretch has his overall line up to .296/.348/.432. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:33 pm
  • Will Smith (knee) ready for rehab assignment
    Will Smith (knee) will join High-A Brevard County to begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday.

    Advice: Smith suffered a torn LCL in his right knee late in spring training, losing out on an opportunity to open the 2016 season as the Brewers' closer. Jeremy Jeffress took that job and has run away with it, boasting a 2.37 ERA in 19 innings and 11 saves in 12 attempts. Smith, who had a 2.70 ERA and 91 strikeouts in 63 1/3 innings last year, still makes for a decent stash in fantasy leagues with deeper rosters. Rotoworld.com May 23, 6:22 am
  • Lucroy nets RBI single in low-scoring loss
    Jonathan Lucroy went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Lucroy gave the Brewers an oh-so-brief 1-0 lead with his RBI single off Noah Syndergaard in the top of the first inning. For the season, the 29-year-old backstop is slashing a hearty .287/.352/.473 with eight doubles, six homers and 17 RBI over 150 at-bats. Rotoworld.com May 22, 1:25 pm
  • Pennington expected back when eligible
    Cliff Pennington (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday, the first day he's eligible.

  • Marte (thumb) expected back in 15 days
    Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to be ready for activation from the disabled list when his 15 days are up.

    Advice: Marte sprained his left thumb on a slide Saturday but has apparently avoided a serious injury. "Everything indicates that it shouldn’t be anything longer than 15 days with Marte," Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "It’s not as bad as originally thought." Shawn O'Malley is at shortstop for the M's on Sunday, but Chris Taylor has been recalled and figures to see the bulk of the starts at the position while Marte is out. Rotoworld.com May 22, 8:38 am

  • Ketel Marte's X-rays come back negative
    Ketel Marte's X-rays came back negative.

    Advice: He sprained his thumb sliding into second Saturday against the Reds. Marte is hoping to return in a few days, though the club doesn't sound as optimistic. Triple-A shortstop Chris Taylor is on his way to Cincinnati, which could be a sign that Marte is headed to the disabled list. If Marte does land on the DL, it won't be a long stay.

  • Smyly allows three runs in loss to Tigers
    Drew Smyly allowed three runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Tigers on Saturday.

    Advice: Two home runs accounted for all three of the Tigers' runs against Smyly. It's an issue he's had in a handful of starts so far this year -- in four starts he's allowed two or more homers, while allowing zero combined in the other five. Despite a 3.54 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 63/14 K/BB ratio over 56 innings, Smyly is now 2-5 on the year. An interleague date with the Marlins is on tap for Thursday. Rotoworld.com May 21, 4:52 pm
  • Marte swipes two bags in win over Reds
    Ketel Marte went 1-for-3 with two stolen bases in Saturday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Marte singled to lead off the fifth inning before stealing second and eventually third base off the battery of John Lamb and Tucker Barnhart. The stolen bases were his fourth and fifth of the season after he stole eight in 57 games with the club last season. The speedy shortstop actually left the game with a sprained left thumb following the stolen bases, so it remains to be seen how long he might be out with the injury. Rotoworld.com May 21, 4:10 pm

  • Cain hits sixth home run against White Sox
    Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Cain took White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez deep for the solo blast, his sixth homer of the season. Of course, three of those came in one game, so it's not as though he's been tearing the cover off the ball with regularity. The 30-year-old has 22 RBI and 21 runs scored to go with five steals and a .271/.329/.406 line overall. Rotoworld.com May 21, 2:20 pm
  • Will Smith ready for minor league rehab
    Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Saturday that Will Smith (knee) is ready to begin a minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Counsell said they would have a plan for him in place on Sunday. The left-hander, who was expected to begin the season as the club's closer, is working his way back from a torn right LCL. Barring any setbacks, he could be looking at a return to the Brewers bullpen at some point in early-to-mid June. Rotoworld.com May 21, 12:07 pm
  • Diaz drives in two runs in loss to D-Backs
    Aledmys Diaz went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Diaz drove in a run with a ground out in the first inning before reaching on an RBI single in the seventh. The move to the No. 2 spot this week was long overdue and he should have a good chance to stick there if he continues to hit. By the way, he’s not slowing down. He has hit safely in seven out of his last eight games and four of them have been multi-hit games. Diaz is batting .373/.403/.634 overall. The Cardinals can’t possibly sit him when Jhonny Peralta (thumb) comes off the DL. Rotoworld.com May 20, 9:45 pm
