  • Royals ship infielder Colon back to Triple-A
    Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: Colon has seen 127 at-bats with the Royals this season, but has done next to nothing with them. The 27-year-old infielder worked to a .228/.295/.268 triple-slash with no homers and five doubles in his previous opportunities with the defending champs this season. Rotoworld.com 29 minutes ago

  • Marwin Gonzalez lifted with hamstring injury
    Marwin Gonzalez left Wednesday's game against the A's due to right hamstring discomfort.

    Advice: Gonzalez was dealing with a bit of a knee injury after being plunked by a pitch in mid-August, but Wednesday's hamstring issue would seem to be unrelated to the previous ailment. Hamstrings are notoriously tricky and a trip to the disabled list is in play here depending on the severity of the injury. The Astros will reevaluate him after the game. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:31 pm

  • Cubs recall Tommy La Stella from Iowa
    Cubs recalled INF Tommy La Stella from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: La Stella is starting at second base and batting seventh on Wednesday night against Pirates right-hander Ryan Vogelsong. He initially refused to report to the minors when the Cubs demoted him on July 29 but eventually relented and is now back in the majors as a utilityman. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:07 pm

  • Rockies activate Mark Reynolds (hand) off DL
    Rockies activated 1B Mark Reynolds from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Reynolds made an incredibly swift recovery from August 15 surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand. Or maybe he's not even ready yet and merely returning ahead of the expansion of MLB rosters on Thursday. There should be more information soon. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:03 am

  • Darwin Barney to be excused on Wednesday
    Darwin Barney will be excused from the Blue Jays on Wednesday for personal reasons.

    Advice: Barney shouldn't be gone more than a day or two. Ryan Goins will be called up from Triple-A Buffalo to give the Blue Jays infield depth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:00 pm

  • Greg Garcia day-to-day with knee soreness
    Greg Garcia is day-to-day with knee soreness.

    Advice: Garcia is not in the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday and the discomfort could limit his ability to play shortstop over the next few days or even weeks. Jedd Gyorko is at short for St. Louis on Tuesday night in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:31 pm

  • Drew (ear) ramping up baseball activities
    Stephen Drew (ear) has ramped up baseball activities in the last couple of days.

    Advice: "He's talking like he'll be ready for action soon," said Nationals manager Dusty Baker. Drew had been experiencing symptoms of vertigo due to a right inner-ear issue. He visited a specialist last Wednesday and has making making good progress since. A mid-September return seems feasible. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm

  • Brewers outright Will Middlebrooks to AAA
    Brewers activated INF Will Middlebrooks from the 15-day disabled list; sent him outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Middlebrooks is recovered from his lower right leg strain, but he's also now off the Brewers' 40-man roster. The infielder was 3-for-27 (.111) with a .337 OPS through 10 games this season with Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:08 pm
  • Tigers option INF McGehee to Triple-A
    Tigers optioned INF Casey McGehee to Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: McGehee has seen a lot of time at third base lately with Nick Castellanos sidelined, but he's batting just .232 (19-for-82) with one double over 22 games with the Tigers this season. The 33-year-old figures to return in September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:03 pm

  • Max Muncy goes hitless in loss
    Max Muncy grounded into a double play, struck out and walked Monday against the Astros.

    Advice: Muncy was primarily a first baseman in the minors and never played a game at second base prior to this year, yet he's been starting pretty regularly at second base for the A's this month. It's not his bat keeping him in the lineup; he's hitting .189 with just four extra-base hits in 110 at-bats (though he has walked 16 times). Muncy doesn't have the bat to play first base in the majors, and it's highly unlikely that he'll cut it as a second baseman. It'd seem to make more sense for the A's to give Arismendy Alcantara a long look there in September, though it remains to be seen if they will. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:18 pm

  • Tyler Saladino cranks eighth home run
    Tyler Saladino had a two-RBI single and a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Saladino was the White Sox' offense in this one, as his single put the White Sox ahead in the fourth and his home run put them ahead in the seventh. Unfortunately for him and the Pale Hose, Jarrod Saltalamacchia put the Tigers back up for good with a homer in the eighth. Saladino has settled in as the White Sox' regular second baseman with Brett Lawrie banged up. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:04 pm

  • Mets option INF Rivera to Triple-A
    Mets optioned INF T.J. Rivera to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Monday's starter, Rafael Montero. Rivera should be back when rosters expand. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:48 pm

  • Headley in Monday's lineup vs. Royals
    Chase Headley is in Monday's lineup against the Royals.

    Advice: Ronald Torreyes started all three games at third base over the weekend, but Headley is back in there Monday and will bat seventh against Dillon Gee. Headley will likely continue to lose playing time if Torreyes continues to play well. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:25 pm
  • La Stella to be called up this week
    Tommy La Stella will be among the Cubs' September call-ups this week.

    Advice: La Stella initially refused to report to Triple-A Iowa following his demotion late last month -- and was even placed on the temporary inactive list for a stretch -- but he finally came around to the idea and has been playing regularly between second base and third base in Triple-A. The 27-year-old was batting .295/.388/.457 at the time of his demotion and is capable of being a useful bench piece down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:10 pm

  • Castellanos (hand) played catch on Monday
    Nick Castellanos (hand) played catch Monday for the first time since landing on the disabled list.

    Advice: But he can only receive soft throws at this point and isn't close to hitting. Castellanos suffered a broken hand on August 6 when he was struck by a Logan Verrett pitch. He'll try to make it back by mid-September, but it might be more like late September. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:56 pm

  • Jefry Marte homers, drives in three vs. DET
    Jefry Marte went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Marte launched a two-run home run off Anibal Sanchez in the fifth inning and came through with a sacrifice fly just one frame later. He just returned to the Angels on Friday after being away from the team to handle a personal matter earlier in the week. For the season, the 25-year-old first baseman is working to a .243/.286/.453 triple-slash with 10 homers and 30 RBI over 181 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:38 pm

  • Mets recall T.J. Rivera from Triple-A Vegas
    Mets recalled INF T.J. Rivera from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Rivera probably didn't even have time to unpack his bags after being sent down on Friday. Now he's on his way back to the major leagues where he'll absorb the roster spot left by Justin Ruggiano, who was placed on the disabled list with left shoulder discomfort. Traditionally employed as a utility infielder, Rivera could see time in the outfield during Ruggiano's absence. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:19 pm

  • Headley socks two-run homer in win
    Chase Headley finished 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored against the Orioles on Friday.

    Advice: After a miserable April, Headley picked things up through the end of July, but he was hitting just .220/.313/.356 this month coming into Friday’s action. It’s worth noting that he was dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles during that time, but he now has two homers in his last four games. Perhaps he’s turning the corner.

  • T.J. Rivera optioned to Triple-A
    Mets optioned INF T.J. Rivera to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Rivera's most recent stay was a short one, as he was only up for a few days while Neil Walker was on paternity leave. He'll be back in September. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:56 am

  • Jefry Marte (personal) to return on Friday
    Jefry Marte (personal) will join the Angels Friday in Detroit.

    Advice: Marte missed the club's series against the Blue Jays while tending to a personal matter. The 25-year-old has been a jack of all trades this season, splitting time between left field and both corner infield spots. He's hit a little bit too with nine homers and 27 RBI over 176 at-bats for the Halos. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:05 pm

  • Saladino (back) singles, steals base
    Tyler Saladino (back) singled in three at-bats and stole a base on Wednesday.

    Advice: Saladino had missed four straight games due to back soreness. It obviously wasn't anything too serious. He's hitting .258/.295/.385 with 10 steals in 70 games this season as a utilityman for the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:51 am

    Stephen Drew visited an inner-ear specialist Wednesday and received a shot.

  • Middlebrooks (leg) set for rehab assignment
    Will Middlebrooks (leg) will report to Low-A Wisconsin for a rehab assignment on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll play at least two games there before moving up the Brewers' minor league ladder. Middlebrooks has been on the disabled list since July 25 with a lower right leg strain. He was batting .111 (3-for-27) with a .337 OPS through 10 games with Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 am
  • Saladino still sidelined by back discomfort
    Tyler Saladino missed a fourth straight start Tuesday due to back soreness.

    Advice: But the 27-year-old infielder did say Tuesday that it's "feeling better." Saladino hasn't appeared in a game for the White Sox since last Thursday. He had been serving as their primary starter at second base with Brett Lawrie (hamstring, quad, knee) on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:56 pm

  • Mets calling up T.J. Rivera on Tuesday
    The Mets will recall T.J. Rivera from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

    Advice: Neil Walker is set to go on paternity leave, so Rivera will provide some infield depth. The 27-year-old recently hit .355 (11-for-31) during his first stint in the majors. Rotoworld.com Aug 22, 1:47 pm

  • Chase Headley battling Achilles tendinitis
    Chase Headley has been dealing with tendinitis in his left Achilles for over a week.

    Advice: It was a factor in him sitting out Friday and Saturday, although Headley was available off the bench Saturday. Headley could return to the lineup Sunday. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 7:01 am
