  • Suzuki removed after potential concussion
    Kurt Suzuki left Saturday's game against the Mariners after getting a foul ball to the face mask.

    Advice: The Twins are likely concerned that Suzuki suffered a concussion, but further information should come after the game. Juan Centano replaced the 32-year-old catcher, who was hitting .200/.257/.284 in 106 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:36 pm

  • Crawford removed for pinch runner in 8th
    Carl Crawford was removed for a pinch runner after beating out an infield single in Saturday's contest against the Mets.

    Advice: Crawford was replaced by LHP Alex Wood, which signaled that the 34-year-old outfielder could've suffered an injury while legging out a grounder to second base. If he is not injured, it represented a creative way to save his legs in a blowout victory. Something is up, though, it seems. Crawford is now hitting .209 with zero homers in 71 plate appearances.

  • Beckham homers, drives in three Braves in win
    Gordon Beckham went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in a Braves' 7-2 win over the Marlins on Saturday.

    Advice: With a couple runners on in the seventh inning, Beckham took an Edwin Jackson offering out to left-center for his second home run of the year. He also doubled and scored in the contest. Beckham has quietly been very good for the Braves in 27 games this year, batting .317/.417/.488 with 14 RBI and 11 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:33 pm
  • Ramsey DFA'd to make room for Fien
    Dodgers designated OF James Ramsey for assignment on Saturday.

    Advice: The Dodgers needed to make room for RHP Casey Fien on the 40-man roster. Ramsey is only hitting .222/.285/.429 with a 33.3 percent strikeout rate in Triple-A Oklahoma City, so the 26-year-old outfielder seemed to be an obvious choice for this move. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:42 pm

  • Avisail Garcia clubs fifth home run in loss
    Avisail Garcia clubbed his fifth home run of the season on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to lead the White Sox to victory over the Royals.

    Advice: Garcia blasted a three-run homer off Yordano Ventura in the fourth inning that increased the White Sox lead to 6-1. He also singled and scored in the contest, finishing the day 2-for-4. For the season, Garcia is hitting .259/.316/.424 with five homers and 18 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:42 pm
  • Russell Martin homers, Jays rally to beat BOS
    Russell Martin homered and drove home three runs on Saturday as the Blue Jays rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Red Sox 10-9 on Saturday.

    Advice: Martin blasted his homer off Rick Porcello in the sixth inning, pulling the Jays to within three runs at 7-4. He added an RBI single as part of a four-run uprising to tie the game in the eighth inning. His biggest contribution came with two-outs in the ninth inning, where his RBI double plated the tying run off Craig Kimbrel. Martin then came around to score the winning run on a single by Devon Travis. He finished the afternoon 3-for-5 with three runs scored and three RBI, raising his season slash to .194/.260/.273 to go along with three homers and 14 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:33 pm
  • Mets acquire James Loney from Padres for cash
    Mets acquired 1B James Loney from the Padres for cash considerations.

    Advice: Loney is expected to platoon at first base with Wilmer Flores. As the strong side of the platoon, he should see enough at-bats to be relevant in NL-only formats, though even at his peak he was never much of a mixed league commodity. He was hitting well at Triple-A El Paso though, slashing .342/.373/.424 with a pair of homers and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:49 am

  • Mets acquire James Loney from Padres
    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have acquired James Loney from the Padres.

    Advice: No word yet on the return, but it isn't expected to be much. With Lucas Duda sidelined and a gaping hole offensively at first base, Loney will have the chance to step right in as the club's everyday first baseman. The 32-year-old was hitting .342/.373/.424 with two homers and 28 RBI in 158 at-bats at Triple-A El Paso. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:18 am

  • Cards designate Ruben Tejada for assignment
    Cardinals designated INF Ruben Tejada for assignment.

    Advice: Greg Garcia flashed enough in his brief callup that that Cardinals felt it would be more prudent to keep him on the roster as a reserve infielder instead of Tejada who was hitting just .176/.225/.235 in his 34 at-bats. He should be able to latch on elsewhere with little difficulty. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 am

  • Braves place Erick Aybar (foot) on 15-day DL
    Braves placed SS Erick Aybar on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot contusion.

    Advice: Aybar suffered the injury when he was drilled by an Adam Conley offering during Friday's game. Rather than rush him back into action, the club will give Aybar ample time to heal. Daniel Castro should handle the bulk of the action at shortstop while he's sidelined. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 am

  • Ryan Hanigan available off bench on Saturday
    Ryan Hanigan (neck, illness) is available off of the bench on Saturday.

    Advice: The veteran backstop was unavailable on Friday due to a neck issue and an illness that he has been battling. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:34 am
  • Braves will re-evaluate Aybar on Saturday
    The Braves plan to re-evaluate Erick Aybar (foot) on Saturday.

    Advice: Aybar was forced to leave Friday's game after he was hit in the foot by a pitch. While X-rays came back negative, the Braves will ensure that he's ready to go before returning to the lineup. Expect to see Daniel Castro at shortstop on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:53 am

  • Angela to designate Ryan for assignment
    Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Angels plan to designate Brendan Ryan for assignment on Saturday.

    Advice: The veteran infielder has been with the club as a reserve infielder, but offers little in the way of offense and isn't a part of the team's future plans. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:01 am

  • Derek Norris hits fifth homer in victory
    Derek Norris went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI and two walks against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Advice: The Padres need more from Norris, not just so that they can win some games, but also because they want him to drive up his trade value in advance of the deadline. He's hit .224 with four homers in May after finishing April with a .156 average and one homer. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:25 pm
  • Colin Moran gets first two knocks
    Colin Moran collected his first two major league hits and an RBI against the Angels on Friday.

    Advice: Moran's single in the ninth plated the Astros' only two runs of the game. He's 2-for-16 since being called up 11 days ago. The slow start has already resulted in him playing less than originally expected, but this could help some. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:07 pm
  • Yonder Alonso goes hitless in loss
    Yonder Alonso went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Tigers on Friday.

    Advice: Alonso has picked it up some after a brutal April, but even so, he's still hitting a modest .254/.322/.324 with no homers in May. The A's might run out of patience and give Max Mundy an extended look soon. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:58 pm
  • Aaron Hill continues power surge against Reds
    Aaron Hill continued his power surge against the Reds on Friday, blasting a pair of home runs in a 9-5 victory.

    Advice: Hill registered the first and only three homer game of his career earlier in the month against this same Reds pitching staff. Hill tagged starter John Lamb for a solo homer that tied the game at 3-3 in the fourth inning, then replicated the feat in the fifth. Hill also singled in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-4 to raise his season slash up to .271/.340/.443 to go along with six homers and 19 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:52 pm

  • Cardinals expected to DFA Ruben Tejada
    Mark Saxon of ESPN reports that the Cardinals are expected to designate Ruben Tejada for assignment on Saturday.

    Advice: The Cardinals are forced to make a roster move to reinstate Matt Carpenter from the paternity leave list, and it appears as though Tejada is the odd-man out. Tejada is hitting just .176/.225/.235 in 34 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:35 pm

  • Erick Aybar day-to-day with foot contusion
    Erick Aybar is listed as day-to-day after leaving Friday's game against the Marlins with a foot contusion.

    Advice: Aybar was pulled after getting hit on the foot by a pitch from Adam Conley in the fourth inning. He may sit out on Saturday as a precaution, but expect him to return to the field before the weekend is through. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:01 pm

  • Erick Aybar leaves game after hit by pitch
    Erick Aybar was removed from Friday's game against the Marlins in the fifth inning after he was hit in the ankle by a pitch from Adam Conley.

    Advice: Aybar remained in the game to run the bases for himself, but was replaced by Daniel Castro defensively to begin the next inning. It would appear as though his exit was precautionary, but expect an update from the Braves on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:04 pm

  • Hanigan (illness, neck) not starting Thursday
    Ryan Hanigan (illness, neck) is not in the Red Sox's lineup Thursday against the Rockies.

    Advice: He left Wednesday's game with an illness and is also battling neck stiffness. Christian Vazquez will draw another start behind the plate. Blake Swihart, who is starting in left field, will fill in if Vazquez leaves early. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:15 pm
  • Beckham homers in pinch-hit appearance
    Gordon Beckham pinch hit in the sixth inning and clobbered a two-run homer that temporarily put the Braves on top of the Brewers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Beckham picked up another base hit later in the game, but all of his damage came on a two-run shot off lefty Chris Capuano in the sixth. He's now hitting .310/.402/.451 and is proof that almost any big leaguer can be productive in small samples, if utilized correctly. He just doesn't currently see enough playing time to matter in standard fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:12 pm
  • Martin goes deep twice in win over Yankees
    Russell Martin finally busted out of his power slump and hit a pair of homers in Wednesday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Martin had one extra-base hit, a double, in 136 plate appearances prior to Wednesday, but he took Ivan Nova deep for a solo shot in the sixth and followed up with a two-run homer off Chasen Shreve in the seventh. It's important to note that his neck has hindered his playing time and his overall performance in 2016. Although his neck stiffness won't magically disappear, Wednesday's big performance hopefully will kick off a positive run of play from Martin, who is now only hitting .181/.248/.236 on the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • Ryan Hanigan exits with illness vs Rockies
    Ryan Hanigan was forced out of Wednesday's game against the Rockies due to an illness.

    Advice: Hanigan collected a single in his first at-bat, but was pulled for a pinch-hitting Christian Vasquez in the bottom of the fourth. The Red Sox forwarded that he is dealing with a bit of a bug. Consider him day-to-day. Hanigan is also fighting through a left hand contusion suffered over the weekend. Tough times for the veteran backstop. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:50 pm
  • Report: Loney's reps plan to contact Mets
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that James Loney's representatives plan to contact the Mets to gauge interest.

    Advice: Lucas Duda is out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his back, so it could be a natural fit. Sherman hears that the Mets at least have "some curiosity" about the possibility. Loney, 32, is batting .333/.368/.417 with two home runs and 23 RBI over 39 games with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate. He has the ability to opt of his minor league deal if he finds an opportunity in the majors. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:57 am

  • Avisail Garcia out for third straight game
    Avisail Garcia is out of the White Sox starting lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader.

    Advice: It'll be the third game off in a row for Garcia, who's batting .248/.313/.413 in 134 plate appearances this season. Brett Lawrie is at DH and Carlos Sanchez is at second base for Chicago in the early game versus Indians right-hander Mike Clevinger. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:43 am
  • Hill reaches four times, scores twice in loss
    Aaron Hill had a single, three walks, two runs scored and a stolen base Saturday against the Mets.

    Advice: Hill was a thorn in the side of starter Jacob deGrom and the Mets bullpen all day, reaching base in all four plate appearances. The stolen base was his third of the season in four tries. Hill has enjoyed a small resurgence as a member of the Brewers this season, batting .252/.321/.390 with four homers, 17 RBI and 13 runs scored in 40 games. Rotoworld.com May 21, 6:55 pm

  • Ryan Hanigan leaves with left hand contusion
    Ryan Hanigan left Saturday's game against the Indians with a left hand contusion.

    Advice: Trevor Bauer drilled him with a pitch in the sixth inning. Christian Vasquez pinch-hit for Hanigan in the seventh and replaced him behind the plate. Hanigan could be headed for X-rays. Rotoworld.com May 21, 4:42 pm
  • Avisail Garcia not in ChiSox lineup Saturday
    Avisail Garcia is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the second day off in the past three games for Garcia. Jerry Sands is starting at first base and batting cleanup while Jose Abreu shifts over to the designated hitter role in the lineup. Rotoworld.com May 21, 8:29 am
  • Beckham has two hits, RBI vs. Phillies
    Gordon Beckham went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored against the Phillies on Friday.

    Advice: Beckham, who made the start out of the No. 2 spot, is now batting .394 (13-for-33) in 10 games since coming off the disabled list. We obviously don’t expect it to last given his track record, so steer clear in mixed formats, but there’s opportunity in this infield right now. Rotoworld.com May 20, 7:47 pm
  • Aybar returns to Braves' lineup
    Erick Aybar went 1-for-3 with a bunt single and a walk in his return to action Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Aybar sat out Thursday’s game after getting a chicken bone caught in his throat. Fortunately, he’s fine and should be good to go moving forward. The 32-year-old is hitting just .178 with a .423 through his first 39 games this season, so this year hasn’t been very kind to him so far. Rotoworld.com May 20, 7:47 pm

  • Erick Aybar hospitalized after choking on bone
    Erick Aybar was taken to the hospital Thursday after getting a chicken bone stuck in his throat.

    Advice: Obviously he won't be starting against Pittsburgh in the series finale. The Braves own the NL's worst record by a wide margin and aren't getting any breaks right now, even in the lunch room. Daniel Castro will get the nod at shortstop on Thursday night. Aybar is day-to-day. Rotoworld.com May 19, 2:40 pm

  • Avisail Garcia not starting Thursday
    Avisail Garcia is not in the White Sox's starting lineup Thursday against the Astros.

    Advice: Garcia is just getting a routine day off. Jerry Sands will serve as the DH and hit seventh. Garcia struggled in April (.214 AVG) but has bounced back by hitting .319 with a .373 OBP in May. Rotoworld.com May 19, 1:59 pm
