  • Will Middlebrooks leaves with strained leg
    Will Middlebrooks left Sunday's game versus the Cubs with a right lower leg strain.

    Advice: Middlebrooks tweaked his leg while popping out in the third inning. It's unclear whether it could be more than a day-to-day injury, but the Brewers should offer up more on his status at some point. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:51 pm

  • Garcia goes 2-for-4 with a run and RBI
    Adonis Garcia stroked two hits in four chances, adding an RBI and a run scored on Saturday.

    Advice: He singled and scored in the first inning. He singled again in the third inning to drive in Freddie Freeman. The 31-year-old is playing most every day for the Braves but has not put up the kind of numbers to be a viable fantasy option. He is batting .257 with 7 home runs in 299 plate appearances.

  • Healy hits walk-off home run versus Rays
    Ryon Healy launched a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Rays on Saturday.

    Advice: It was the second homer of his career after being called up last week. He is slashing .281/.303/.563 in 32 at-bats. He has 16 homers combined between the minors and majors this year. At 6-5/225 he is a big man, but was not a huge home run hitter in the minors. He was more of a high batting average guy, having hit over .300 the last two years. Healy has been getting everyday playing time since his call-up and could be a quality fantasy producer the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm

  • Drew strokes walk-off RBI double on Saturday
    Stephen Drew was called upon to pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth inning and stroked a game-winning RBI double as the Nationals won in walk-off fashion on Saturday.

    Advice: Drew has been relegated to part-time duty this season but has hit well when given the chance. After being one of the game's worst batters the last two years, Drew is hitting .255/.313/.539 this year. He has seven home runs in only 103 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:48 pm

  • Jhonny Peralta (thumb) nearing swings
    Jhonny Peralta (thumb) said he's hoping to begin swinging a bat in the next day or two.

    Advice: Peralta was placed on the 15-day disabled list July 19 with ongoing discomfort in his surgically-repaired left thumb. It sounds like he could be ready in mid-August, but this has become a lingering thing and it's possible there are more setbacks to come. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:55 pm

    Brett Lawrie (hamstring) will undergo an MRI Friday.

    Advice: Lawrie was forced to leave Thursday's game with tightness in his left hamstring, and he was still feeling sore when he got to the ballpark Friday. Obviously more will be known about his status when the test results are in. Tyler Saladino is filling in at second base Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:38 pm

  • Plouffe (rib) throws, does some running
    Trevor Plouffe (rib) threw from 90 feet and did some light running on Friday.

    Advice: He'll take swings off a tee soon. Plouffe is nearly three weeks removed from a cracked rib but appears to finally be making some progress. He'll likely need a rehab assignment before returning. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:37 pm

  • Dodgers optioned Culberson to Triple-A
    Dodgers optioned INF Charlie Culberson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: The move clears a 25-man roster spot for Julio Urias, who will make his ninth major league start Thursday afternoon against the Nationals. Culberson has hit .267/.290/.333 in 16 games this year in the majors. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:57 am

  • Jefry Marte powers Angels past Rangers
    Jefry Marte clubbed a three-run homer in the first inning on Wednesday, powering the Angels to a 7-4 victory over the visiting Rangers.

    Advice: Marte has been an unexpected source of power in the Halos lineup this season, though he's only hitting .227/.277/.436 on the year with six homers and 17 RBI. He isn't seeing consistent enough playing time to be worth a look in mixed leagues, though he's worth a roster spot in all AL-only formats and could be an interesting punt option in daily leagues when squaring off against an opposing southpaw.

  • Headley hits fourth July homer versus Orioles
    Chase Headley hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

  • Cardinals place Peralta (thumb) back on DL
    Cardinals placed 3B Jhonny Peralta on the 15-day disabled list with a left thumb injury.

    Advice: Peralta continues to experience nagging pain in his surgically-repaired left thumb. Hopefully a good two weeks of rest will finally solve the issue. He had batted just .221/.258/.416 in 30 games since his initial June 7 activation. Greg Garcia figures to see semi-regular action at third base in Peralta's absence. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:26 pm

  • Adonis Garcia goes deep in loss to Reds
    Adonis Garcia went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: He also scored on a Jeff Francoeur double, tallying both of the Braves' runs on the night. The Braves' third baseman has been heating up of late with a .421 average over his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 8:45 pm

  • Jhonny Peralta (thumb) out of Monday's lineup
    Jhonny Peralta is out of Monday's lineup against the Padres due to continued pain in his surgically-repaired left thumb.

    Advice: Peralta missed a couple of games prior to the All-Star break due to nagging pain and was double-switched out of Sunday's game. The Cardinals will continue to monitor him for now. Greg Garcia is getting the start at the hot corner on Monday. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 2:57 pm

  • Peralta not in Monday's lineup
    Jhonny Peralta is not in Monday's lineup versus the Padres.

    Advice: Peralta could just be getting some routine rest, but remember that he missed a couple of games prior to the All-Star break due to a thumb injury. Greg Garcia is playing third Monday and batting eighth against left-hander Christian Friedrich. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 1:50 pm

  • Brett Wallace placed on paternity leave
    Padres placed 3B Brett Wallace on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Justin Upton was activated from the bereavement list in the corresponding move. Wallace can miss up to three games while on paternity leave. He's played sparingly since Yangervis Solarte's return from a hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 12:46 pm

  • Drew has three doubles, two runs scored Sat.
    Stephen Drew went 3-for-4 with three doubles and two runs scored Saturday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Drew had just five doubles in 48 games prior to Saturday's game, but he was an extra-base machine in the victory. The good game raised his batting average 21 points, an indication of how sparsely he's been used and how pedestrian he's been when he does find his way into the lineup. Drew is hitting .263/.324/.568 overall. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 9:13 pm

  • Healy hits first major league homer Saturday
    Ryon Healy went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, the first of his big league career, in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Healy's dinger off Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey in the second inning was an important one, as the A's ended up holding on to win by one run. The two hits were the first two of his career after he went hitless in his MLB debut Friday night. The 24-year-old was having a strong year in the minors and is worth a flyer in AL-only leagues, with those in deeper mixed leagues encouraged to keep an eye on his progress.

  • A's promote Ryon Healy from AAA Nashville
    Athletics purchased the contract of INF Ryon Healy from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Healy was batting .326/.382/.558 with 14 home runs and 64 RBI in 85 games this season between Double-A Midland and Triple-A Nashville. The 24-year-old could steal starts at first base with Yonder Alonso struggling mightily, and he could take over at third base in the event Danny Valencia gets traded later this month. Healy is worth a look in deeper mixed fantasy leagues and AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 12:30 pm
