  • Gattis homers twice, knocks in four in win
    Evan Gattis homered twice and drove in four runs as the Astros beat the Angels 7-2 on Saturday.

    Advice: Gattis terrorized Angels starter Jered Weaver, blasting a three-run shot in the second inning before tacking on a solo dinger in the fourth. The homers were his 14th and 15th of the year, giving him 40 RBI. That power has kept him fantasy relevant, but El Oso Blanco is hitting just .224/.289/.451 on the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:36 pm

  • Lucroy hits two-run home run on Saturday
    Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run home run in the first inning on Saturday and finished the game 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored.

    Advice: Lucroy is a prime candidate to be moved before next weekend's trade deadline. Today's game boosted his trade value a bit higher than it already was. His .301/.362/.494 slash stats with 13 homers and 50 RBI make him one of the top three catchers in fantasy baseball. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:30 pm

    Kurt Suzuki was cleared of a concussion.

    Advice: Suzuki left Saturday's game against the Red Sox after taking a foul tip off his catcher's mask, but he escaped with a minor cut. Consider him day-to-day. Juan Centeno took over behind the plate for Minnesota. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:24 pm

  • Cameron Rupp showing no concussion signs
    Cameron Rupp is showing no concussion symptoms.

    Advice: That's great news. Rupp was pulled from Saturday's game against the Pirates after taking a 91 mph fastball from Tyler Glasnow off the side of his batting helmet. The 27-year-old catcher entered the day with an impressive .810 OPS and 10 home runs in 62 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:50 pm

  • Cameron Rupp leaves after HBP to helmet
    Cameron Rupp was pulled from Saturday's game against the Pirates after taking a pitch off his helmet.

    Advice: The 91 mph fastball from Pirates rookie Tyler Glasnow caught Rupp right in the ear hole. He'll probably be put through MLB's concussion protocol. Look for an update Saturday night or Sunday morning. Rupp was 0-for-1 in the game, after going 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk, and three RBI on Friday night. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:15 pm

  • Angels option Juan Graterol back to Triple-A
    Angels optioned C Juan Graterol to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: The club wanted more experience behind the plate so they recalled the hot-hitting Carlos Perez from Triple-A on Saturday. Graterol will continue to serve as organizational catching depth for the Halos. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:25 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 Today, 12:23 pm
  • Athletics place Vogt on family leave list
    Athletics placed C/1B Stephen Vogt on the family emergency medical leave list.

    Advice: Vogt has a family matter that he needs to tend to for a couple of days, so the Athletics brought up Bruce Maxwell from Triple-A to help handle the load behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:06 pm

    Advice: He'll provide depth behind the plate for the Bucs with Eric Fryer away on paternity leave. He doesn't hold any fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:34 am
  • Pirates place Eric Eryer on paternity leave
    Pirates placed C Eric Fryer on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Fryer's wife gave birth to twins on Saturday morning, so he certainly has his hands full for the next couple of days. Elias Diaz was recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:33 am

  • Buster Posey (foot) in Giants lineup Saturday
    Buster Posey (foot) is in the Giants starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Posey was forced to leave Friday's game after fouling a ball off of his back leg. He suffered only a minor contusion though and is back behind the dish and batting third for the Giants against Ivan Nova and the Yankees on Saturday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:14 am

  • Russell Martin (knee) feeling better Saturday
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Saturday that Russell Martin (knee) is feeling much better.

    Advice: Martin sat out Friday's game due to a minor knee injury. He's out again on Saturday, but that's a product of knuckleballer R.A. Dickey being on the hill for the Jays. Look for Martin to be back behind the dish for Sunday's series finale against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:51 am

  • Rupp homers, drives in three vs. Pirates
    Cameron Rupp went 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk, and three RBI in Friday’s win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Rupp got the Phillies on the board with a single in the sixth inning before adding a two-run homer for some insurance in the ninth. Expectations were modest coming into the year, but the 27-year-old quietly has 10 homers with an .810 OPS through 62 games. He’s gaining momentum in mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Buster Posey day-to-day with foot contusion
    Buster Posey was diagnosed with a right foot contusion and is considered day-to-day.

    Advice: Posey was lifted from Friday's game after fouling a ball off of his back leg, but X-rays thankfully came back negative. Given the short bench that the Giants are playing with, it wouldn't be surprising to see Posey back in the lineup on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:25 pm

  • Posey leaves game after fouling ball off leg
    Buster Posey was forced to leave Friday's game against the Yankees after fouling a ball off of his back leg.

    Advice: Posey fouled a ball off his back foot during his at-bat in the fourth inning on Friday. He stayed in the game to run the bases for himself, but was replaced defensively by Trevor Brown. He'll presumably head for further evaluation and the Giants should have an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:48 pm

  • Erik Kratz elects free agency
    Erik Kratz has elected free agency.

  • Yasmani Grandal (illness) back in lineup
    Yasmani Grandal (illness) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Grandal was unavailable Thursday due to a stomach bug. He's catching and batting sixth against Michael Wacha and the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:54 pm
  • Russell Martin (knee) to miss a couple days
    Russell Martin is not in Friday's lineup due to a minor knee injury.

    Advice: He's sit out Saturday, as well, although that was already going to happen with R.A. Dickey starting. Martin hurt his knee when he got lightheaded in a sauna and slipped and fell. Really. Josh Thole will catch Friday and Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:35 pm

  • Avila (hamstring) expected out four weeks
    Alex Avila (hamstring) is expected to miss around four weeks.

    Brewers manager Craig Counsell said that Jonathan Lucroy is getting a planned day off Thursday.

    Advice: Trade speculation surfaced as soon as Thursday's lineup card was released, but Lucroy is staying put for now. Still, there's a good chance he's dealt by the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:26 pm

  • Swihart (ankle) not ready for rehab games
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Thursday that Blake Swihart (ankle) has had to slow down his rehab.

    Advice: Swihart hasn't felt 100 percent with his ankle while doing some cuts while running, so rehab games don't appear to be imminent. The 24-year-old has been out since June 4 with a severe sprain of his left ankle. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:52 pm

  • Lucroy out of Brewers' lineup Thursday night
    Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' starting lineup Thursday night against the Pirates.

    Advice: Commence the trade speculation. Lucroy tallied three RBI and a stolen base on Wednesday night, but Martin Maldonado will get the nod at catcher Thursday. He is batting eighth versus Bucs lefty Francisco Liriano. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:57 pm

  • Gary Sanchez hammers grand slam Wednesday
    Yankees C prospect Gary Sanchez pounded three hits including a grand slam Wednesday in a win for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: The grand slam came during a 12-run sixth inning. Sanchez has been a steady power presence for the RailRiders this year, slugging 10 homers with 44 RBI over 62 appearances. He's also logged five steals, a respectable total for someone who spends most of his time behind the plate. Sanchez has made a couple cameos in New York but is still looking for his first major league hit (0-for-6). Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:12 am

  • Lucroy drives in three runs and steals a bag
    Jonathan Lucroy drove in three runs and added a stolen base as the Brewers beat the Pirates 9-5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: He drove in two runners with a single to left in the sixth inning, then hit a sacrifice fly to bring in an insurance run in the eighth inning. Lucroy's name is swirling in trade rumors but it hasn't been a distraction for the All Star catcher. He is batting .305/.362/.492 with 12 home runs in 311 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:22 pm

  • Brown homers among three base hits
    Trevor Brown went 3-for-5 and smashed a two-run homer but the Giants lost on Wednesday.

    Advice: Brown does not get to play very much but has done well when given the chance. He has a .261 batting average with a .731 OPS in 111 at-bats spread across 43 games. The home run gave him five for the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:31 pm
  • Evan Gattis day-to-day after hand contusion
    Evan Gattis left Wednesday's game against the A's due to a right hand contusion.

    Advice: Gattis is being listed as day-to-day. He was lifted in the seventh inning with the injury, but remained in the clubhouse. With the Astros off on Thursday, the slugger could potentially return to the lineup without missing a game when they face off with the Angels on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:19 pm

  • Report: Indians shooting for Lucroy trade
    ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Indians are "in talks" for a potential Jonathan Lucroy trade.

    Advice: There are no details as to who the Indians might have to give up in return for Lucroy. As far as available catchers go, the 30-year-old backstop is about as reliable as they come. This season, he is slashing .305/.362/.494 with 12 homers and 45 RBI over the course of 308 at-bats. Lucroy has told FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman that he would like to play for a contender. At 55-38 and holding a seven-game lead in the AL Central, the Indians would fit that bill. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:18 pm

    Alex Avila (hamstring) is being reevaluated by the White Sox after he pulled himself from Tuesday's rehab game.

    Advice: Avila was closing in on a potential Thursday return to the big league club, but that has been thrown into question after he was forced out of his rehab showing on Tuesday. The 29-year-old backstop was placed on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain on July 6. The White Sox will update his status on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:14 pm

  • Mariners recall Mike Zunino from AAA level
    Mariners recalled C Mike Zunino from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Zunino had two homers in seven at-bats during his last stay in the majors. He's been excellent this season at the Triple-A level, slashing .286/.376/.521 with 17 home runs and 57 RBI in 79 games. The former top prospect has the ability to steal playing time from Chris Iannetta, but it will probably be a timeshare out of the gate. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:19 am
  • Chirinos goes yard twice in slugfest loss
    Robinson Chirinos went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Tuesday's 8-6 loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Chirinos will be haunting Tim Lincecum's dreams tonight. He burned him twice, cracking a solo homer in the second inning and following that up with a two-run tater in the fourth. The veteran backstop is hitting just .217 over his 83 at-bats, but he also boasts a hearty .554 slugging percentage in that space. He missed almost two months due to a fractured forearm before returning from the disabled list in early June. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:22 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
  • Swihart (ankle) doing full baseball activity

    Matt Wieters was sent for X-rays on his foot after Monday's game.

    Buster Posey went 3-for-5 and hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the 10th inning but the Giants eventually lost to the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: He added a run-scoring double in the fifth inning. The solo home run gave him 12 for the season to go with his .293 batting average, 53 runs and 44 RBI. The 29-year-old is still the top fantasy catcher in baseball as he has been for several years. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:56 pm

  • Lucroy swats a two-run homer on Saturday
    Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run home run, his 12th of the season, against the Reds on Saturday.

    Advice: He finished the game 1-for-3 plus a walk. His batting average climbs to .303 and the two RBI give him 45 for the season. Lucroy is one of the best catchers in baseball, both with the bat and the glove. His name is swirling in trade rumors and there is a high likelihood he will be changing teams in the next two weeks. He will be a fantasy stud no matter where he ends up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:51 pm

  • Jonathan Lucroy a possibility for Atlanta?
    SB Nation's Scott Gelman reports the Braves are looking to acquire a catcher at the trade deadline.

    Advice: The Braves will be without Tyler Flowers (fractured hand) for the next 4-6 weeks, which leaves them with A.J. Pierzynski and Anthony Recker behind the plate. Jonathan Lucroy has piqued Atlanta's interest in the past, though the catcher has already said he would prefer to play for a contender. Lucroy is set to become a free agent in 2018 and the Braves would probably need some assurance that he'd be open to a contract extension before pursuing him in a trade. The Rangers have also been linked to Lucroy, who was named to his second All-Star team earlier this month. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:38 pm

  • Martin sitting with Dickey on the mound
    Russell Martin is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Saturday against the Athletics.

    Advice: As always, Josh Thole will catch for knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Martin went 1-for-5 last night in his first game of the second half. He's only hitting .227 this year and has been a difficult player to trust in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:38 am

  • Stephen Vogt goes 3-for-4, homers
    Stephen Vogt went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI against the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Advice: Maybe Vogt will have a little chip on his shoulder after getting selected for the All-Star Game as Oakland's only rep and then being held out of the game by Ned Yost. It's just the second time this year that he's knocked in three runs in a game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:47 pm

  • Rangers' talks for Lucroy went nowhere
    Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that trade talks between the Brewers and Rangers "went nowhere" regarding Jonathon Lucroy.

    Advice: Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reported earlier Friday that the Rangers have discussed both Lucroy and Jeremy Jeffress with the Brewers, but there's nothing to suggest that anything is close and Texas could be better off using their assets to acquire a starting pitcher. Meanwhile, Haudricourt hears that the asking price for Lucroy remains "very high." And that's understandable, as Lucroy's contract includes a bargain $5.25 million club option for 2017.

  • Cervelli to begin rehab assignment Thursday
    Francisco Cervelli (hand) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday.

    Advice: He's close to returning from a broken hand he suffered last month. Cervelli is allowed to rehab for a maximum of 20 days, though he won't need all of it. The 30-year-old was hitting .257 with 21 RBI and a .373 on base percentage before his injury. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:47 pm
