  • Peter Bourjos goes 3-for-5 in win
    Peter Bourjos went 3-for-5 and scored twice against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: One of the Phillies' corner outfielders finally got hot, and Bourjos has assumed the second spot in the order as a result of his recent success. That doesn't make him a strong pickup in shallow mixed leagues, but he might eke out some value in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Rickie Weeks Jr. goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Rickie Weeks Jr. went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the loss to the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks are giving Weeks some additional playing time after his recent success versus lefties, but he didn't capitalize tonight. He'll probably return to the bench tomorrow, with either Peter O'Brien or Brandon Drury starting in left field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Chisenhall stays hot with three-run homer
    Lonnie Chisenhall singled and lifted a three-run homer in Monday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Chisenhall's longball off of Tyrell Jenkins in the fourth inning put the Indians ahead for good. It was his second straight game with a homer, and Chisenhall now has 11 hits over his last six games. His batting line for the season is suddenly up to .295/.355/.470.

  • Lagares (thumb) to begin rehab stint Tuesday
    Juan Lagares (thumb) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: He's expected to be joined by the newly-signed Jose Reyes, who will move up from Low-A Brooklyn on Tuesday. Lagares has been sidelined since June 14 with a sprained left thumb and still hopes to avoid surgery. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:49 pm

  • Corey Dickerson nursing sore left thumb
    Corey Dickerson (thumb) missed Sunday's game with a sore left thumb.

    Advice: Dickerson won't be in the lineup Monday against Boston but he's hoping to return on Tuesday. The 27-year-old has struggled in his first year away from Coors Field, hitting just .209 with 13 HR and 34 RBI. Evan Longoria filled in as the DH Sunday against Baltimore. The Rays have sunk to the bottom of the AL East by losing 11 straight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:58 am

  • Tommy Pham clubs two homers as Cardinals win
    Tommy Pham clubbed a pair of solo home runs on Sunday as the Cardinals topped the Mariners in a slugfest at Safeco Field.

    Advice: Pham hadn't done anything until the seventh inning, where he tagged Nick Vincent for a solo shot to put extend the Cardinals lead to 8-6. He wasn't finished though, victimizing Vidal Nuno in the ninth for another insurance run. For the season, Pham is hitting just .235/.278/.588 with two homers and two RBI in his limited role with the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:44 pm

  • Gutierrez clobbers three-run homer in loss
    Franklin Gutierrez clobbered a three-run home run in a losing effort against the Cardinals on Sunday.

    Advice: He also singled and drew a walk, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3. Gutierrez was in the lineup due to his ability to mash left-handed pitching, but impressively his three-run shot came off right-handed reliever Donn Roach in the sixth inning to tie the game at 6-6. Unfortunately, that would be the extent of the M's offense in the ballgame. With the two-hit effort, Gutierrez is now slashing .266/.336/.516 with nine homers and 25 RBI on the season. He's worth using in all formats whenever a left-hander is on the hill. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:44 pm
  • Adonis Garcia blasts three-run homer
    Adonis Garcia went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: The Braves held just a 1-0 lead heading into the eighth inning, but opened up some much-needed breathing room with a four-run frame. The big blow came courtesy of Garcia, who provided in the clutch when he launched a three-run homer off reliever Logan Verrett. For the season, the 31-year-old third baseman is slashing .253/.296/.356 with five homers and 21 RBI over 194 at-bats. He can be safely avoided for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:59 pm

  • Arcia homers, collects three hits in loss
    Oswaldo Arcia went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a two-run double in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Arcia came over from the Twins in a trade on Friday. He failed to pick up a hit in his first three at-bats with his new club, but came through in a big way on Sunday. He notched a solo home run in the fourth inning and a two-run double in the fifth to finish with three RBI. In 103 at-bats with the Twins prior to the trade, the 25-year-old outfielder was hitting just .214/.289/.369 with four homers and 12 RBI. He is young enough and talented enough that his career shouldn't be considered a lost cause yet, though it is off to a rocky enough start. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:29 pm

  • Juan Lagares (thumb) resumes activities
    Juan Lagares (thumb) has resumed baseball activities at the Mets' spring training complex.

    Advice: There's no word yet on when he'll be ready for a rehab assignment. Lagares has decided to put off surgery on his sprained left thumb for now, although we'll have to see how he progresses. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:06 am

  • Cliff Pennington (hamstring) runs the bases
    Cliff Pennington (hamstring) ran the bases on Saturday.

    Advice: Pennington is nearing a rehab assignment. The veteran infielder has missed a good chunk of the season with a pair of hamstring injuries. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:11 am

  • Crisp scores four times and nets three hits
    Coco Crisp finished the day 3-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and four runs scored on Saturday.

    Advice: Crisp is rapidly approaching the end of his 15 year career and is not having a good season, but he is still capable of filling the stat sheet on the rare occasions when he is fully healthy. Today he reached base four times and his teammates drove him home each time. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:45 pm

  • Will Venable accepts demotion to OKC
    Dodgers sent OF Will Venable outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Venable cleared waivers after being designated for assignment on Friday. He logged just one hit in 10 at-bats during his six-game stint with Los Angeles. The 33-year-old is now off the Dodgers' 40-man roster. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:23 pm

  • Guyer beginning rehab assignment Saturday
    Brandon Guyer (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Saturday.

    Advice: Guyer will serve as the DH on Saturday. He was placed on the disabled list three weeks ago with a strained hamstring. The Rays' outfield is pretty banged up right now with injuries to Steven Souza (hip), Mikie Mahtook (hand) and Kevin Kiermaier (hand), so it will be a welcome sight when Guyer returns sometime next week.

  • Arcia expected to be in lineup Sat. night
    Oswaldo Arcia is expected to be in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: The Rays are going with Jaff Decker, Taylor Motter, and Corey Dickerson in their outfield and Brad Miller out of the DH spot in the first game. Arcia hasn't played since June 14, so the Rays didn't want him to play both games of the doubleheader. The 25-year-old should split time between right field and the DH spot with his new team.

    4:10 pm vs Bos
     
  • Jennings out for first game of doubleheader
    Desmond Jennings is not in the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jaff Decker will make the start in center field instead. Taylor Motter will play right field and Corey Dickerson is in left. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:06 am
  • Carrera (Achilles) returns to lineup Friday
    Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles) went 1-for-5 with a single and a strikeout in his return to the lineup Friday versus the White Sox.

    Advice: Carrera sat out Wednesday's game because of a sore Achilles, but he was back in the leadoff spot Friday night. He should continue to see plenty of playing time with Jose Bautista (toe) sidelined. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:25 am
  • Dickerson homers in loss to Orioles
    Corey Dickerson homered as part of a 2-for-4 night with two RBI on Friday.

    Advice: His home run in the first inning was his 13th of the year. Dickerson has struggled mightily since being traded from the Rockies to the Rays. He has a very unlucky .225 BABIP so perhaps better days are ahead for the 27-year-old outfielder. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:26 pm

  • Will Venable designated for assignment
    Dodgers designated OF Will Venable for assignment.

    Advice: Signed less than two weeks ago, Venable picked up one hit in 10 at-bats during his brief time with the Dodgers. He'll likely clear waivers and accept an outright assignment in order to retain a big league contract. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:33 pm

  • Rays acquire Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins
    Rays acquired OF Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: Arcia has hit only .240/.303/.429 over 967 plate appearances at the big league level, but he just turned 25 last month and has shown lots of power in flashes. He should see playing time in the corner outfield spots while Brandon Guyer (hamstring) and Steven Souza (hip) are sidelined, although both players are due back soon. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:58 am

  • Garcia's go-ahead shot leads Braves past Mets
    Adonis Garcia hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning to break a tie and lead the Braves to a 4-2 win over the Mets on Thursday.

    Advice: Garcia got just enough of an Addison Reed pitch to clear the wall in left field for the game-winning dinger. It was his fourth of the year and his third in his last 10 games. He's hitting .389 with six RBI and six runs scored in that span, bringing his overall line up to .258/.304/.346. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:16 pm

  • Coco Crisp doubles, homers in loss to Brewers
    Coco Crisp went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a double in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Crisp slashed a solo homer off Brewers starter Junior Guerra in the fourth inning. It was the veteran outfielder's sixth of the season. He also managed a double in the game, his 14th such hit of that variety. Despite Wednesday's nice efforts, Crisp is still slashing just .227/.284/.394 over 216 at-bats. He does not make for a legitimate fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:00 pm

  • Ezequiel Carrera out because of sore heel
    Ezequiel Carrera is out Wednesday because of a sore Achilles.

    Advice: Darrell Ceciliani will start in right field and bat ninth versus Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray. Carrera is considered day-to-day. He's been filling in as Toronto's primary right fielder with Jose Bautista on the disabled list because of turf toe. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:40 am
  • Carrera out of Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday
    Ezequiel Carrera is out of the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Carrera is serving as the Jays' primary right fielder with Jose Bautista battling turf toe, but Darrell Ceciliani gets the nod Wednesday versus Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray. Ceciliani is hitting ninth. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:00 am
  • Adonis Garcia (ankle) used as pinch-hitter
    Adonis Garcia (ankle) struck out as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night against the Marlins.

    Advice: Garcia hasn't started a game since injuring his left ankle last Thursday, but he would seem to be pretty close. The third baseman is slashing .258/.305/.331 with three homers and 14 RBI in 49 games this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:46 am

  • Guyer (hamstring) nearing baseball activity
    Brandon Guyer (hamstring) could begin baseball activities on Friday.

    Advice: Guyer has been sidelined for a little over two weeks with a left hamstring strain, but he has increased his running in recent days and could take some swings against rehabbing right-handers Alex Cobb and Chase Whitley later this week. He appears on track to return in the early part of July. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:32 am

  • Pennington (hamstring) not close to return
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Cliff Pennington (hamstring) is still "a ways away."

    Advice: Scioscia said that Pennington is just beginning some "very low level" baseball activity, so a return isn't imminent. The veteran infielder has been sidelined since the end of May after aggravating a left hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:57 pm

  • Gutierrez supplies M's offense with solo shot
    Franklin Gutierrez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Gutierrez supplied the lone Mariners run of the afternoon against a resurgent David Price, cracking a solo home run in the fourth inning. The dinger was his eighth through the first two-and-a-half months of the 2016 campaign. For the season, the veteran outfielder is slashing .259/.331/.509 over 116 at-bats. He has recorded seven hits in his last four games. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 7:02 pm
  • Adonis Garcia (ankle) out again Saturday
    Adonis Garcia (ankle) is aiming to return to the Braves' starting lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Garcia hasn't played since tweaking his ankle while running the bases on Thursday afternoon. He could pinch-hit Saturday and Sunday, but the third baseman is still having issues with lateral movement. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 3:56 pm

  • Cardinals recall Tommy Pham from Triple-A
    Cardinals recalled OF Tommy Pham from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Pham provides the Cardinals with another option in center field now that Randal Grichuk has been sent down. He's likely to serve as a backup and defensive replacement, with Kolten Wong expected to see most of the starts in center field. The 28-year-old was hitting just .236/.344/.382 with three homers and 17 RBI in 33 games at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 11:29 am
