  • Danny Valencia (hamstring) returns from DL
    Athletics activated 3B Danny Valencia from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Valencia spent the minimum amount of time on the DL and homered in one of his two rehab games. He'll return to a .294/.345/.353 batting line with the A's and will resume his role as the starting third baseman. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:07 am
  • La Stella has three-hit night against Nats
    Tommy La Stella went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Nationals on Thursday.

    Advice: Drawing another start, the infielder had a double among his three hits, scoring twice on Ben Zobrist hits. Not only was he in the lineup, the 27-year-old occupied choice real estate batting second between Dexter Fowler and Kris Bryant. Cubs manager Joe Maddon seems content to ride the hot hand, and that's La Stella, who's now batting .341/.413/.561 in 16 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:27 pm
  • Dietrich stays hot, has two hits vs. D'backs
    Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with an RBI against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

    Advice: Dietrich opened the scoring with an RBI single in the second inning. He's been drawing more starts as his hot hitting has continued, making his sixth start at second base on Thursday. He'll continue to find his way into the lineup while he's batting .319/.429/.596 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:13 pm

  • Johnson swats RBI double against D'backs
    Chris Johnson had an RBI double in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Johnson, getting a start at first base, knocked the run-scoring double -- his first RBI of the season -- in the fourth inning against Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray. He finished 1-for-4 in the game. The 31-year-old is batting just .207/.281/.276 on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:04 pm
  • Donaldson scores three times in win over TEX
    Josh Donaldson went 1-for-3 with two walks and three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Donaldson scored three of the Jays' 12 runs in the drubbing. He still leads the league in home runs (9) and runs scored (29), and that shouldn't change hitting second in a robust Jays lineup. The third baseman is batting .283/.391/.611 in 30 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:04 pm
  • Jung Ho Kang (knee) could be activated Friday
    Jung Ho Kang (knee) could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: The Pirates have already cleared a spot for him by optioning Jason Rogers to Triple-A Indianapolis. Kang struggled during his rehab assignment, hitting just .150 over 40 at-bats. The Pirates plan on easing him into action with David Freese still making occasional starts at third base. Kang hasn't played for the Pirates since injuring his knee on a hard slide by Chris Coghlan back on September 17. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:11 pm

  • Maikel Franco getting the day off Thursday
    Maikel Franco is getting a day off Thursday.

    Advice: The young third baseman is in a 2-for-22 slump, so he'll take a day of mental and physical rest in Thursday afternoon's series finale in St. Louis. Andres Blanco is starting at the hot corner and batting third versus Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 am

  • Moustakas (thumb) goes 0-for-3 in return
    Mike Moustakas (thumb) went 0-for-3 in his return to the Royals' starting lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Moustakas had been out of the Kansas City lineup for a couple days due to a bruised thumb, though he did smack a game-tying, pinch-hit, two-run single on Tuesday night. The third baseman is clearly just fine. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:45 am
  • Machado doubles twice in loss
    Manny Machado doubled twice in Wednesday's shutout loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Machado was the only ray of sunshine for the Orioles. He doubled twice, collecting doubles 12 and 13 on the year, and is now hitting .355/.410/.673 in 117 plate appearances. That's a slash line that even makes Daniel Murphy blush these days. Machado is one of the best five players in all of baseball and will only see his fantasy value increase with more starts at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:09 pm

  • Castellanos collects two hits in loss
    Nick Castellanos was the only Tigers' hitter with multiple hits in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Tigers, going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.

    Advice: It was an uninspiring night at the plate for the entire Tigers' ballclub, as Corey Kluber carved them up in a five-hit shutout. Still, Castellanos continued his hot start to the season with a couple base hits. He now boasts a .378/.385/.589 slash line in 96 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:57 pm
  • Wallace doubles for one of three Padre hits
    Brett Wallace's double was the only extra-base hit the Padres managed in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Tyler Chatwood more or less erased the Padres' bats from the face of the earth. As a team, they managed just three hits -- singles by Matt Kemp and Melvin Upton Jr., plus Wallace's double. It was his third two-bagger of the season. Through his first 32 at-bats, the 29-year-old former top prospect is slashing .219/.390/.406 with one homer and five RBI. He makes for a dicey fantasy play. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:35 pm

  • Murphy goes 4-for-5 as Nats rout the Royals
    Daniel Murphy finished 4-for-5 with three RBI in the Nationals' 13-2 rout of the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Murphy hit a two-run double -- his 10th double of the year -- in the Nationals' six-run first inning, singled and scored in the Nats' four-run third inning, slugged a solo shot in the fourth inning, and then singled again for good measure in the sixth. Murphy has ridden his remarkable 2015 postseason into a fantastic opening month of 2016, now with a .398/.449/.663 batting line, four homers, 17 RBI, and 17 runs scored in 26 games.

  • Brock Holt sits against Carlos Rodon
    Brock Holt is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest with the White Sox.

    Advice: Holt will sit against opposing southpaw starter Carlos Rodon. In his place, Chris Young earns a start in left field. Young is hitting sixth. This is nothing new for Holt. He has seen just nine at-bats all season against left-handed pitchers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:35 pm

  • Eugenio Suarez homers, drives in three vs. SF
    Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Reds' 7-4 win over the Giants on Wednesday.

    Advice: Suarez slugged a two-run homer off Giants starter Jake Peavy in the bottom of the second -- one of three homers in that frame versus Peavy. The third baseman then added an RBI single in the bottom of the third. Suarez has been slumping a bit since his hot start, but he now boasts six homers and 18 RBI in just 27 games.

  • Braves extend Olivera's administrative leave
    Hector Olivera's administrative leave has been extended.

    Advice: Oliera was taken into custody and charged with misdemeanor assault and battery after a woman called 911 on April 13 outside the Braves' team hotel in Arlington, Virginia alleging that she had been attacked by the 31-year-old Cuban outfielder. The investigation by the Arlington Police Department is still underway. Major League Baseball is also running an investigation of its own under the league's new domestic violence policy. This could take a while to sort out. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:39 am

  • Matt Duffy on Giants' bench Wednesday
    Matt Duffy is on the bench Wednesday versus the Reds.

    Advice: Conor Gillaspie will start at third base and bat sixth versus Reds right-hander Dan Straily. Duffy holds a disappointing .241/.291/.352 batting line on the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:32 am

  • David Wright out Wednesday versus Braves
    David Wright is out Wednesday versus the Braves.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of maintenance for the veteran third baseman. Wilmer Flores will draw the start at the hot corner and bat seventh Wednesday afternoon against Atlanta right-hander Jhoulys Chacin. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:13 am
  • Moustakas (thumb) ties game as pinch-hitter
    Mike Moustakas (thumb) hit a game-tying, pinch-hit, two-run single on Tuesday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Moustakas then scored the game-winning run on a Lorenzo Cain walkoff RBI single a few batters later. The third baseman was held out of Kansas City's starting lineup because of a nagging thumb contusion. He may be given another "bench day" on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:59 am
  • Rendon gets on the board with first '16 homer
    Anthony Rendon hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Rendon, the second batter of the game, took Royals starter Chris Young deep to start the scoring. It was a much-needed blast for the 25-year-old, who hasn't hit with much authority this season after missing most of 2015 with various injuries. Rendon has just two RBI to go with his one homer and he's hitting a rather pedestrian .240/.307/.317 despite batting high in one of the league's better lineups. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:10 pm
  • Seager busts game open with three-run homer
    Kyle Seager went 2-for-4 with a three run home run in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the A's.

    Advice: The Mariners already held a 5-1 lead when Seager strolled to the plate to face reliever Marc Rzepczynski with two runners on and nobody out in the eighth inning. He essentially put it out of reach with one swing of the bat, clocking a three-run home run to send the Oakland faithful home in a dour mood. Through his first 94 at-bats, Seager is slashing just .181/.274/.436 with five doubles, six homers and 17 RBI. The sky might be brightening, though, as Seager has notched three doubles, two homers and seven RBI over his last four games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:00 pm

  • Valencia will play one more rehab game
    Danny Valencia (hamstring) will play one more rehab game with High-A Stockton on Wednesday.

    Advice: If all goes well, he will fly with the A's to Baltimore on Thursday and come off the disabled list Friday when first eligible. Valencia has been on the disabled list since April 20 because of a left hamstring strain, with Chris Coghlan doing most of the filling in at third base. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:50 pm
  • Moustakas absent Tues. due to thumb bruise
    Mike Moustakas is absent from the Royals' lineup Tuesday because of a bruised thumb.

    Advice: Moustakas originally bruised the thumb in Anaheim and then jammed it in Seattle. He might also sit out Wednesday. Christian Colon is starting at third base Tuesday night against Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:56 pm
  • Beckham (hamstring) nearing rehab games
    Gordon Beckham (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: He'll get in a few more workouts before reporting to the Braves' Triple-A affiliate this weekend. Beckham has been on the disabled list since April 17 with a hamstring strain. He should get semi-regular playing time on the Atlanta infield once he's activated. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:46 pm

  • Manny Machado now at SS for O's on Tues.
    Manny Machado is starting at shortstop on Tuesday.

    Advice: Machado was originally penciled in at third base, but the O's have decided to let him play short with Ryan Flaherty covering the hot corner. Machado should get regular starts at shortstop while J.J. Hardy recovers from a small fracture in his left foot. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:06 pm

    Advice: The thought was that he was just getting the day off on Monday, but it sounds like something could be up. The Royals should provide an update soon. Christian Colon is starting at third base versus Washington. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:46 pm
  • Machado at 3B, Flaherty at SS on Tuesday
    Manny Machado will start at third base Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Many were expecting Machado to get the first crack to fill in for J.J. Hardy (foot) at shortstop, but he's staying put on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the newly-recalled Ryan Flaherty will start at shortstop. We still think Machado still has a chance to see some time at shortstop, which would obviously be nice for his fantasy value.

  • Orioles recall INF Flaherty from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled INF Ryan Flaherty from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured J.J. Hardy (foot) on the active roster. It's unclear how the Orioles intend to play it in their infield with Hardy sidelined, but Flaherty should see some starts. The 29-year-old is a .215 hitter in the majors, but he offers some pop and could be relevant in AL-only leagues if the playing time is there. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:09 pm

    Advice: Valencia, out since April 20 with a left hamstring strain, also played seven innings at third base. He's expected to be activated when he's first eligible on Friday. Valencia was batting .294/.345/.353 over 14 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:29 am
  • Twins activate Trevor Plouffe from 15-day DL
    Twins activated 3B Trevor Plouffe from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Plouffe, out since April 17 with a right intercostal strain, was cleared to return after playing a pair of minor league rehab games. Eduardo Nunez has swung the bat well while filling in at third base, but he's now likely headed back to a bench role. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:19 pm
  • David Wright helps Mets power past Braves
    David Wright singled and smacked a solo homer in Monday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: The Mets jumped on Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz for four runs on a trio of home runs in the top of the first inning, with Lucas Duda and Yoenis Cespedes also going deep. Wright had a walk on the night, as well, reaching base three times. Wright has had a decent number of off days as the Mets keep an eye on his back issue, but he's been pretty productive with a .266/.383/.468 batting line and three homers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:43 pm
  • Plouffe (intercostal) to be activated Tuesday
    Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) is set to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Plouffe, who went down with a right intercostal strain in mid-April, went 1-for-8 over two minor league rehab games with High-A Fort Myers. He was batting .302 (13-for-43) with two homers and an .868 OPS over 12 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:26 pm
  • Beckham (hamstring) nears rehab stint
    Gordon Beckham (hamstring) did some running on Sunday.

    Advice: Gordon strained his left hamstring in mid-April, but it appears that he's moving closer to a minor league rehab assignment. The Braves demoted Jace Peterson to the minors on Monday, so there could be opportunity with the big club once he's ready to return. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:34 pm

  • Ryan Flaherty expected to join O's on Tues.
    Ryan Flaherty is expected to return to the Orioles' active roster on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flaherty was just optioned to Norfolk a week ago, but the O's need him again to provide infield depth while J.J. Hardy recovers from a fracture in his foot. Paul Janish will also be worked into the mix once he returns from the Triple-A paternity leave list. Manny Machado could be the everyday guy at short. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:15 pm

  • Castellanos homers, drives in four in win
    Nick Castellanos went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and four total RBI in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Twins.

    Advice: The Twins actually held a 5-2 lead entering the sixth inning (such things do occur on occasion), at which point Castellanos cracked a three-run home run off starter Ricky Nolasco to tie the game at 5-5. Jarrod Saltalamacchia would provide the go-ahead RBI in the eighth inning as the Tigers improved to 14-10. For his part, Castellanos is hitting a cool .361/.371/.590 with four homers, 18 RBI and five doubles over 83 at-bats. He has accumulated eight hits over his last four games, with homers in two of his last three. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:09 pm
  • Manny Machado singles twice in lost cause
    Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Machado was the only Oriole with more than one hit. As a team, they did not record an extra-base knock. The 23-year-old slugger is slashing a stupendous .350/.404/.660 with seven homers, 16 RBI and (already) 10 doubles. Almost half of his 35 hits have gone for extra bases. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:02 pm

  • Jung Ho Kang to play two of every three games
    Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that he expects Jung Ho Kang (knee) to initially play two out of every three games upon his activation from the disabled list.

    Advice: That sounds about right. Kang is making his way back from a torn meniscus and fractured tibia and just recently began playing in back-to-back games on his rehab assignment. The Pirates have some infield depth, so there's no need to push Kang too hard too fast. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:22 am

  • Danny Valencia (hamstring) expected back Fri.
    Danny Valencia (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday, the first day he's eligible.

    Advice: Valencia will begin a three-game rehab assignment with High-A Stockton on Monday, playing third base twice and serving as a designated hitter once. Assuming all goes well, he'll be back with the A's next weekend in Baltimore. Valencia was off to a .294/.345/.353 start in his first 14 games before straining his hamstring. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:21 am
  • Moustakas doubles in loss to the Mariners
    Mike Moustakas went 2-for-4 with his sixth double of the year in Saturday's defeat to the Mariners.

    Advice: Moustakas used to never be a viable starting option against a left-handed pitcher like Wade Miley, but he's really come into his own as a player. He's now hitting .375 with a pair of doubles and a homer against southpaws this year and was the only offensive threat against Miley all night. Overall, the 27-year-old has a .273/.333/.580 slash line with seven homers and 11 RBI in 22 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:33 pm
  • Seager goes deep in win over Royals
    Kyle Seager launched fifth home run of the season off Yordano Ventura in Saturday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Seager capped off a huge four-run first inning for the Mariners with a three-run blast. He followed it up with a double and a walk later in the game, making it a very productive night overall. The 28-year-old is only hitting .159/.266/.378 on the year but his .129 BABIP is by far the worst in the majors among qualified players. Expect his performance to skyrocket in the coming months, as that batted-ball luck sorts itself out. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:25 pm

  • Dietrich hitless Friday against Brewers
    Derek Dietrich made the start at second base Friday against the Brewers and finished 0-for-3.

    Advice: With Dee Gordon serving his 80-game PED suspension, Dietrich will see an uptick in playing time. The Marlins could end up playing him at third base and Martin Prado at second, but they didn’t change their alignment on Friday. Dietrich had 10 homers with an .802 OPS last season and is batting .290/.389/.548 through 17 games this season, so he deserves to be on the radar in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.

    David Wright is scheduled to receive a day of rest on Saturday against the Giants.

  • Harrison launches first homer to lead Bucs
    Josh Harrison launched his first home run of the 2016 season on Friday, leading the Pirates to a 4-1 victory over the visiting Reds.

    Advice: Harrison's fourth-inning blast off Dan Straily increased the Bucs' early lead to 2-0 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He has been outstanding at the plate through the season's first month, slashing .333/.372/.448 with a homer, 14 RBI and four stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:53 pm

  • Danny Valencia continues baseball activities
    Danny Valencia (hamstring) ran sprints on Thursday and has continued to hit off of a tee and pitching machine.

    Advice: Valencia is sidelined with a strained left hamstring, but it's looking as though he may only need a minimum stint on the disabled list. Before he was sidelined, Valencia was hitting .294/.345/.353 with two RBI in 14 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:27 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 Thursday, 9:16 pm

    Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, five RBI and three runs scored as the Orioles trounced the White Sox 10-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: Machado jumped on a slider from reliever Jake Petricka in the sixth inning to turn a relatively close game into a blowout. The homer was his seventh of the season, tying him for second-most in the American League (including with his teammate Chris Davis). The 23-year-old has 16 RBI and 19 runs scored to go with a .333/.389/.678 line through 21 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:55 pm

  • Donaldson gets on base three times in loss
    Josh Donaldson went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Donaldson now has 16 extra-base hits, which is the best mark in the majors. He's an all-around fantasy monster, hitting .297/.379/.637 with 21 runs scored and 19 runs batted in. The 30-year-old also benefits from perhaps the most potent lineup in baseball. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:49 pm
  • Plouffe (intercostal) set for rehab assign.
    Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Fort Myers this weekend.

    Advice: Plouffe was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain in mid-April. He has faced no setbacks in his recovery, though, and will be eligible to be activated from the DL on Tuesday. The Twins open next week with a series against the Astros.

    Jung Ho Kang (knee) is playing in back-to-back games for the second time during his rehab assignment.

    Advice: Getting his rehab work in at Triple-A Indianapolis, Kang went 2-for-5 with a home run on Tuesday. He will be back at it on Wednesday. Trainer Tom Tomcyzk said that the 29-year-old is showing "good signs" in his recovery from a torn meniscus and fractured tibia. He could return to the Pirates in early May barring a health setback.

  • Matt Dominguez earns 1B start for Blue Jays
    Matt Dominguez is playing first base and hitting sixth for Wednesday's showdown with the White Sox.

    Advice: Dominguez was called up on Tuesday to help serve as a right-handed bat in lieu of the suspended Chris Colabello (performance enhancing drugs). He sees a start on Wednesday against left-hander Jose Quintana, though manager John Gibbons indicated that moving forward, Justin Smoak will likely see the bulk of starts at first. Dominguez held a nice .311/.333/.475 triple-slash with 14 RBI through 17 games at Triple-A Buffalo, but as a career .233 hitter in the majors, offers little fantasy upside.

  • Kang (knee) goes deep in rehab game at AAA
    Jung Ho Kang (knee) went 2-for-5 with a homer Tuesday in a rehab game at Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: He entered the day 1-for-19 on his minor league rehab assignment. Kang has made a relatively smooth recovery from last year's severe left leg injury and should be just about ready to rejoin the Pirates' active roster. The 29-year-old infielder batted .287/.355/.461 with 15 home runs and 58 RBI over his first 126 major league games last season. He will be safe for immediate activation in fantasy leagues.

  • Moustakas clubs solo homer in loss to Angels
    Mike Moustakas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Moustakas opened the game promisingly enough, burning Angels starter Jered Weaver for a solo home run in the first inning. It would be his only hit on the evening, though, and an ineffective Edinson Volquez would ensure that the four runs scored by the Royals in the contest would fall in vain. Moustakas is hitting a shiny .267/.337/.613 with five doubles, seven homers and 11 RBI over his first 75 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:10 pm
  • Valencia (hamstring) hit off a tee on Monday
    Danny Valencia (hamstring) hit off a tee Monday.

    Advice: It's a nice step in the right direction for the Oakland third baseman, who landed on the disabled list April 21 with a strained left hamstring. He should be ready to rejoin the A's sometime in early May. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:20 pm
  • Blue Jays call up Matt Dominguez
    Blue Jays recalled 3B Matt Dominguez from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Toronto needed a right-handed bat to replace Chris Colabello, who is serving an 80-game PED suspension. Dominguez has been raking in Triple-A with a .311 average and 14 RBI in his first 17 games. Right-hander Drew Hutchison was sent to Buffalo in the corresponding move. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:54 am

  • Kyle Seager hits fourth homer
    Kyle Seager hit his fourth homer of the year Monday off the Astros' Doug Fister.

    Advice: Seager is still hitting just .141, but his slump might be nearing its end. It's not like he's been striking out a ton or struggling to hit for power... he should be just fine. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:35 pm

  • Blue Jays to call up Matt Dominguez
    Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports that the Blue Jays will call up Matt Dominguez from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Advice: Drew Hutchison will be sent down to clear a spot on the active roster. Dominguez will give the Blue Jays a right-bat off their bench following Chris Colabello's PED suspension. The 26-year-old is a .233 hitter in the majors, but he was batting .311/.333/.475 with two home runs through his first 17 games in Triple-A this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:09 pm
