  • Buster Posey exits with undisclosed injury
    Buster Posey left Wednesday's game against the Marlins with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: There was nothing apparent, but Andrew Susac replaced Posey behind the plate in the bottom of the fifth inning. A few inning earlier Posey took a foul ball off his mask. The Giants should provide an update shortly.

  • Clippard gets four outs to earn 14th save
    Tyler Clippard got four outs Wednesday against the Rockies to earn his 14th save of the season.

    Advice: Clippard was called on to get the final out in the eighth inning before working a perfect ninth to close it out. The right-hander struck out two without allowing a baserunner in the outing. Clippard now owns a 2.67 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 32/15 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings on the year.

  • James Shields allows two runs in loss to M's
    James Shields allowed two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Shields didn't pitch horribly, fanning seven and yielding only four hits in a start that lasted into the seventh, but he was thoroughly out-dueled by Mariners youngster Taijuan Walker. Shields now stands 7-3 with a 4.14 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 123/35 K/BB ratio in 104 1/3 innings this season. He'll get the Pirates on the road next.

  • Pence 'more than likely' back after ASG
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Hunter Pence (wrist) "more than likely" won't return until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: "He's doing well, but he is just hitting off a tee now," Bochy said. "We're going to slow-play this. He'll probably need a couple of (minor-league rehab) games. More than likely he'll be back after the All-Star break. I’m going to be hopefully he makes a speedier recovery." Pence has been on the disabled list since June 12 with wrist tendinitis. The outfielder has played just 18 games for the club this season.

  • Orioles designate Delmon Young for assignment
    Orioles designated OF Delmon Young for assignment.

    Advice: Young wasn't terrible this year but wasn't producing much, either, owning a .270/.289/.339 with two home runs in 174 at-bats. The 29-year-old showed enough that he could be of interest to a team as a possible trade target or waiver claim, though. Young is making $2.25 million this year before becoming a free agent this winter.

  • Michael Conforto continues to swing a hot bat
    Mets OF prospect Michael Conforto collected three hits in Tuesday's win for Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: He crushed a two-run homer in the fifth inning, giving him three in 28 games since his call-up. He's hit .333 for Binghamton, which is actually 50 points higher than he batted at High-A St. Lucie earlier this year. The 22-year-old has put together a .376 on base percentage over 327 plate appearances at two minor league levels this season.

  • Alex Jackson belts first homer of 2015
    Mariners OF prospect Alex Jackson hammered his first home run of the season Tuesday in a win for Low-A Everett.

    Advice: Jackson hadn't homered since July 18 of last year. The 19-year-old hurt his shoulder in May and spent about a month in extended spring training before resurfacing with Everett. In his first 11 games back, he's hit .282 with four extra-base hits. Jackson is No. 22 on MLB.com's list of top prospects.

  • Yan Gomes getting some rest Wednesday
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest. Roberto Perez is catching with Gomes out.
    Today, 12:02 pm
  • Christian Arroyo smashes five hits Tuesday
    Giants SS prospect Christian Arroyo belted a career-best five hits in Tuesday's win for High-A San Jose.

    Advice: That matches a team record. Arroyo has hit .467 with two RBI over his last seven games. Over that stretch, his batting average has climbed 39 points from .282 to .321. The former first-round pick missed several games in May with a strained oblique but that injury is obviously well behind him.

  • Bonifacio named Top Star at Texas League ASG
    Royals OF prospect Jorge Bonifacio earned MVP honors for his performance at Tuesday night's Texas League All-Star Game.

    Advice: He was named the game's Top Star after blasting a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning. The 22-year-old was third in the Texas League in home runs (13) during the first half and fourth in RBI (42). Bonifacio hit .289 in June after batting just .229 in the season's first two months.

  • Owens superb flirts with no-hitter Tuesday
    Red Sox pitching prospect Henry Owens carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning Tuesday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Unfortunately the PawSox hung him out to dry by not scoring any runs. The 22-year-old has posted a stellar 2.39 ERA over his last four starts and now ranks sixth in the International League with 69 strikeouts. Owens also leads the league with 48 walks, a number he'll have to cut down on if he wants to make the big leagues.

  • Dan Jennings activated from disabled list
    White Sox activated LHP Dan Jennings from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Jennings missed nearly a month with a neck injury. He holds a disappointing 7.83 ERA over 22 appearances this season for the White Sox.
    Today, 8:49 am
  • Saunders to be re-evaluated at end of July
    Michael Saunders (knee) will be re-evaluated at the end of July.

    Advice: An MRI taken last week of Saunders' left knee showed significant healing, but clearly he's still a long ways away from a return. The Blue Jays will hope to get him back at some point during the second half.

  • Ryan Hanigan (hand) delayed by flight
    Ryan Hanigan (hand) wasn't activated from the disabled list Wednesday because of a flight cancellation that delayed his arrival in Toronto.

    Advice: Hanigan is in Toronto now but won't be activated until Thursday. Blake Swihart is likely to be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to make room on the roster.

  • Iglesias (oblique) looks good in rehab start
    Raisel Iglesias (oblique) allowed just one hit over three shutout innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

    Advice: Reds manager Bryan Price said the reports on Iglesias were "good." The right-hander is expected to make two more rehab starts before rejoining the big club's rotation after the All-Star break.

  • Ryan Hanigan (hand) won't be activated Wed.
    Ryan Hanigan (hand) will not be activated from the disabled list Wednesday.

    Advice: That's the day the Red Sox had been targeting him to return. The club could be delaying a decision with their catchers, as Blake Swihart has played well of late and the Sox don't want to lose Sandy Leon, who is out of options. Either way, Hanigan will surely be activated later this week.

  • De La Rosa solid in 5 2/3 IP in no-decision
    Rubby De La Rosa scattered two runs in 5 2/3 innings, but got a no-decision in Tuesday's 10-inning loss versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Both runs scored on a Yasmany Tomas home run in the second inning. De La Rosa allowed six hits and a walk overall while striking out seven. He's put together four terrific starts in a row now but still has a mediocre 4.60 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 94/26 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will look to keep it going when he faces the Rockies at home in his next start.
    Yesterday, 10:58 pm
  • Goldschmidt extends hit streak to 10 games
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a walk, but the Diamondbacks lost in 10 innings to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt kept hope alive, drilling a two run double in the bottom of the 10th inning against Kenley Jansen to make it a 6-4 game. The first baseman is on a 10-game hitting streak, batting a ridiculous .354/.469/.639 with 20 home runs, 65 RBI, and 15 stolen bases to date.
    Yesterday, 10:53 pm
  • Blackmon knocks in a run in a win vs. the A's
    Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with an RBI, helping the Rockies eke out a win against the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Blackmon singled in a run in the fifth inning against Chris Bassitt to break a scoreless tie. The outfielder is batting a productive .275/.348/.443 with 10 home runs, 34 RBI, and 21 stolen bases.

  • Martinez homers again, but Tigers fall in 14
    J.D. Martinez went 3-for-6 with a two-run home run, but the Tigers couldn't overcome the Pirates in 14 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Martinez belted a two-run home run to left-center off of Tony Watson in the bottom of the eighth inning, knotting the game up at four apiece. It's his fourth home run in his last five games and his seventh in his last seven. He has 20 round-trippers on the year with 48 RBI and a .275/.330/.535 triple-slash line.
    Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • McCutchen reaches base 5 times in a win
    Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-5 with three walks and an RBI in Tuesday's 14-inning win against the Tigers.

    Advice: McCutchen knocked in what turned out to be a very important run with a single in the eighth inning. The Tigers would knot the game up in the bottom half of the inning on a two-run home run. McCutchen is again putting up All-Star numbers, batting .296/.389/.485 with nine home runs and 45 RBI.
    Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Teixeira's 19th HR serves as Yanks' only run
    Mark Teixeira provided the Yankees their only run in Tuesday's loss against the Angels.

    Advice: It was a solo home run to left-center off of Andrew Heaney, one of only two Yankee hits on the evening. He finished 1-for-2 with a walk. Teixeira hadn't homered since June 15, but has 19 on the season with 54 RBI and a .246/.359/.536 triple-slash line.
    Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI.

  • Kennedy serves up two homers in loss to SEA
    Ian Kennedy gave up four runs over five innings to take the loss on Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Mike Zunino ripped a solo home run in the third inning to open the scoring. An Austin Jackson RBI single and a two-run Brad Miller home run created a three-run fourth to account for the rest of the offense. Kennedy allowed five hits and a walk overall while striking out five. The right-hander has looked competent at times this season, but hasn't been able to gather any momentum. He has a 5.23 ERA with a 1.34 WHIP and a 70/23 K/BB ratio in 74 innings. Kennedy will try to change his luck with a road start against the Cardinals in his next trip out to the mound.
    Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Suarez blasts second home run against Twins
    Eugenio Suarez hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Suarez hit a solo shot off Phil Hughes in the third inning to get the Reds on the board. The homer was his second in 17 games this season. Suarez took over for Zack Cozart at shortstop and has held his own, hitting .328/.369/.475. Despite that, his offensive upside is limited and he can be ignored in most fantasy formats.
    Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Rodriguez sees way out of trouble to beat PHI
    Francisco Rodriguez saw his way out of trouble to pick up his 17th save as the Brewers wrapped up a 4-3 victory against the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rodriguez walked Ben Revere to start the inning, then saw Cesar Hernandez reach base when Jonathan Lucroy made a poor throw to second base following a bunt. With two on and nobody out, Rodriguez struck out Maikel Franco, got Andres Blanco to weakly fly out, and struck out Jeff Francoeur to end the game. His record remains unblemished, earning the save in all 17 chances with a 1.50 ERA and a 36/9 K/BB ratio in 30 innings.
    Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Posey has double, homer in loss to Marlins
    Buster Posey finished 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two runs scored against the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Posey hit a solo home run in the third inning before doubling and scoring on a wild pitch in the sixth. The catcher is 11-for-24 (.458) with four doubles, two home runs, 13 RBI and eight runs scored during a six-game hitting streak. The hot stretch has his overall line up to .303/.378/.487.
    Yesterday, 7:54 pm
  • Hunter Pence (wrist) takes swings off tee
    Hunter Pence (wrist) took swings off a tee with a fungo bat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He also played catch as he resumed baseball activities for the first time in nearly two weeks. There remains no timetable for Pence's return, as the Giants will have to see how his ailing left wrist responds to increased activity.

  • Goldschmidt adds 2 RBI, 2 SB in D'Backs win
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run single, and two stolen bases as the Diamondbacks pounded their way to a win over the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt is now on a 10-game hitting streak, extended with a single in the sixth inning just ahead of a Yasmany Tomas home run. Goldy then ripped a two-run single in the eighth to cap off a four-run frame. He's having a bonkers year, carrying a .352/.467/.637 triple-slash line with 20 home runs, 64 RBI, 15 stolen bases, 55 runs scored, and 60 walks.
    Monday, 10:30 pm
  • Blackmon the Rockies' only source of offense
    Charlie Blackmon provided the Rockies their only run with a homer in Monday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Blackmon finished 1-for-5, drilling a solo shot in the eighth inning to put the Rockies on the board. He's posting similar numbers as last season, batting .275/.349/.446 with 10 home runs and 33 RBI, but he's really turned things up in the stolen base department. Blackmon has stolen 21 bases already in less than half a season compared to 28 last year.

  • Suarez knocks in 3 runs, steals two bases
    Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI, and two stolen bases as the Reds held on to beat the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: Suarez had logged four straight multi-hit games between June 21-25 and did it again on Monday. He doubled in two runs in the third inning and singled in a run in the sixth in a slugfest. Suarez is filling in for the injured Zack Cozart and has done well thus far, batting .316/.361/.421 with nine RBI and three stolen bases in 62 plate appearances.
    Monday, 8:04 pm
  • Rodriguez slams door on Phils for 16th save
    Francisco Rodriguez kept the Phillies off the board in the ninth inning to pick up his 16th save as the Brewers won 7-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Rodriguez got consecutive ground outs from Cody Asche and Cameron Rupp, but Freddy Galvis kept hope alive with a single. "K-Rod" then struck out Darin Ruf to end the game. Contending teams are surely noting the fact that the right-hander has converted all 16 save opportunities thus far with a 1.55 ERA and a 34/8 K/BB ratio over 29 innings.
    Monday, 7:57 pm
  • Gomes' big night aids in Indians win vs. Rays
    Yan Gomes went 3-for-5 with a double and a solo home run as the Indians topped the Rays 7-1 on Monday.

    Advice: Gomes doubled to lead off the second inning and later came around to score the Indians' second run in the second inning. He drilled a solo home run to left-center in the eighth off of reliever Kirby Yates to add some insurance. The catcher has battled injuries throughout the year, limiting him to a .211/.226/.330 batting line with three home runs and nine RBI in 115 plate appearances.
    Monday, 7:15 pm
  • Charlie Blackmon not in Sunday's lineup
    Charlie Blackmon is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's on the bench with the Giants throwing lefty Madison Bumgarner. Brandon Barnes is covering center field with Blackmon out.

  • Andrew McCutchen (elbow) in Sunday's lineup
    Andrew McCutchen (elbow) is back in the Pirates' lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: 'Cutch had to ext Saturday's game against the Braves after taking a pitch off his left elbow. X-Rays came back negative, though, and he's ready to go.
    Sunday, 8:41 am
  • Iglesias (oblique) ready for rehab assignment
    Raisel Iglesias (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment early this week.

    Advice: Iglesias was cleared for game action after throwing another successful bullpen session on Saturday. "I don't think he has anything else to prove throwing on the side," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "His next outing is sometime early next week in a game. It will take two or three outings probably to build him back up to start." Iglesias should rejoin the Reds' rotation right after the All-Star break.

  • Posey has two-run double in win over Rockies
    Buster Posey went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Posey contributed a two-run double in the third inning, the third time in his last four games that he's driven in multiple runs. In that span, he's 7-for-16 with three doubles, nine RBI and six runs scored. Overall, Posey is hitting .297/.375/.471 with 11 homers, 39 runs scored and 50 RBI.
    Saturday, 4:39 pm
  • McCutchen's elbow X-rays come back negative
    X-rays on Andrew McCutchen's left elbow came back negative.

    Advice: Pirates fans can breathe a huge sigh of relief. McCutchen is day-to-day. Meanwhile, Saturday's game just got a little more interesting. Both dugouts were warned after Charlie Morton plunked Andrelton Simmons. It's unclear if Morton was retaliating for McCutchen's hit-by-pitch earlier in the game.
    Saturday, 2:24 pm
  • Andrew McCutchen goes down with elbow injury
    Andrew McCutchen left Saturday's game against the Braves after taking a pitch off his left elbow.

    Advice: He couldn't get out of the way of Julio Teheran's 91 mph fastball in the first inning. Jung Ho Kang pinch-ran for McCutchen with Starling Marte moving to center field. McCutchen has hit.333 with 31 RBI since May 1. If he faces an extended absence, it would be a huge loss for fantasy owners.
    Saturday, 2:01 pm
  • J.D. Martinez powers Tigers past White Sox
    J.D. Martinez blasted a solo home run in the eighth inning on Friday, propelling the Tigers to a 5-4 victory over the White Sox.

    Advice: The game had been knotted up at 4-4 before Martinez took Zach Duke over the wall in left-center for the game-winning blast. He has now homered in three consecutive games for the second time this month, and has nine home runs in his last 12 contests. On the season, he's slashing a healthy .274/.331/.533 with 19 home runs and 46 RBI.
    Friday, 7:26 pm
  • Posey plates three as Giants win slugfest
    Buster Posey went 3-for-5 and drove home three runs as the Giants outlasted the Padres in a 13-8 slugfest on Thursday.

    Advice: Two of Posey's three knocks were doubles and he also scored three runs in the contest. He has once again been one of the truly elite offensive performers behind the plate this season, slashing .293/.369/.469 with 11 long balls and 48 RBI.
    Thursday, 4:12 pm
  • James Shields slaughtered in loss to Giants
    James Shields was slaughtered in Thursday’s loss to the Giants, surrendering seven runs on nine hits in his four-plus innings of work.

    Advice: The small silver lining for fantasy owners is that he was able to rack up seven strikeouts on the afternoon while walking two. It was Shields’ worst start as a member of the Padres and his shortest outing since August of 2013. Now 7-2 on the season, the veteran right-hander will carry a 4.24 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 116/31 K/BB ratio into Wednesday’s start against the Mariners.
    Thursday, 4:06 pm
  • De La Rosa impressive in no-decision
    Rubby De La Rosa spun seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

    Advice: De La Rosa left with the lead, but the Diamondbacks' bullpen quickly coughed it up in the eighth inning. Still, it was a very impressive outing at a tough place to pitch. De La Rosa gave up just five hits and one walk while striking out five, with the only damage coming on a solo homer from Nolan Arenado in the sixth. The 26-year-old has allowed just two earned runs in 22 innings over his last three starts, improving his ERA from 5.84 to 4.69 in the process. He'll try to keep it going against the Dodgers next week at home.
    Thursday, 4:02 pm
  • Clippard works 1-2-3 9th vs TEX for 13th save
    Tyler Clippard had a 1-2-3 ninth inning, earning his 15th save as the Athletics took down the Rangers 6-3 on Thursday.

    Advice: The ninth saw some hard contact, but Clippard lucked out. Robinson Chirinos lined out, Rougned Odor popped out, and Shin-Soo Choo lined out. The right-hander moves to 13-for-15 in save opportunities with a 2.87 ERA and a 29/14 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings.
    Thursday, 2:51 pm
  • Martinez clubs his 9th June homer in a loss
    J.D. Martinez went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 10-inning loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Martinez reduced the Tigers' deficit to 5-4 with a two-run home run in the fifth inning off of Carlos Rodon, marking his fifth home run in his last four games. He's also gone yard nine times in June, giving him 18 on the season along with 45 RBI and a .270/.329/.522 batting line.
    Thursday, 2:17 pm
  • Posey's grand slam pushes Giants past Padres
    Buster Posey blasted a grand slam in Wednesday's 6-0 triumph across from San Diego.

    Advice: He finished 1-for-4. Posey's grand slam seemed almost preordained after Ian Kennedy slogged through a third inning elongated by a Will Middlebrooks error. Considering Posey's history against Kennedy, it came as no surprise that he capitalized on the moment. Posey is 16-for-40 (.400) lifetime against the right-hander.
    Wednesday, 10:33 pm
  • Paul Goldschmidt hits 20th homer
    Paul Goldschmidt launched his 20th homer of the year Wednesday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Goldschmidt's 20th homer came in his 71st game of the season. Last year, he hit 19 in 109 games before a fractured hand ended his season. He's also surpassed his 2014 total in steals (12 to 9) and he's getting close to last year's walk total (57 to 64).
    Wednesday, 10:25 pm
  • Kennedy's 5 unearned runs sink Padres
    Ian Kennedy held the Giants to one earned run over six innings Wednesday, but was charged with five unearned runs in the 6-0 loss.

    Advice: Leadoff hitter Andrew Susac reached safely on Will Middlebrooks' error in the third inning, setting the stage for a frustrating inning of pecking until Buster Posey blasted a grand slam. Owners who waited out Kennedy's horrific start are almost out of that long, desolate tunnel. After going 2-5 with a 7.15 ERA across his first eight starts, Kennedy had gone 2-0 with a 2.63 mark in his past four prior to tonight. At home against the Mariners next week, Kennedy is usable in just about every format.
    Wednesday, 10:18 pm
  • K-Rod slams door on Mets for his 15th save
    Francisco Rodriguez kept the Mets off the board in the ninth inning, grabbing his 15th save as the Brewers won 4-1 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rodriguez got back-to-back ground outs from Michael Cuddyer and Curtis Granderson before Ruben Tejada kept the Mets' hopes alive with a double. However, Rodriguez rebounded to strike out Lucas Duda to end the game. He has yet to blow a save in 15 opportunities and now has an even 1.00 ERA with a 32/7 K/BB ratio over 27 innings. Fantasy owners are hoping the Brewers are able to move him to a contender to boost the frequency of his save chances.
    Wednesday, 7:54 pm
  • Pence (wrist) still 5-7 days from activity
    Hunter Pence (wrist) is still 5-7 days away from baseball activity.

    Advice: Pence was able to shed the splint he'd been wearing, but after being re-evaluated the outfielder will still need some down time before ramping up the work. The Giants are certainly eager to get Pence back with Nori Aoki now on the disabled list as well, but they won't rush him. Pence is likely out until after the All-Star break at least.

  • Teixeira drives home two in return Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira finished 3-for-5 with two RBI in the Yankees' rout of the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: That cortisone shot for his neck injury apparently did the trick. All of Teixeira's hits were singles, but he drove in one run in the Yankees' three-run fourth inning and another run in the Yankees' four-run seventh inning. The veteran first baseman is batting .259/.369/.557 with 51 RBI in 66 games this season.
    Wednesday, 1:25 pm
  • J.D. Martinez goes deep Wed. in loss
    J.D. Martinez ripped a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: His longball in the seventh inning got the Tigers on the board, but that's as close as they got with Carlos Carrasco cruising most of the day. Martinez now has 17 home runs on the season to put him on pace for 38, which would far surpass the 23 he hit in last year's breakout campaign.
    Wednesday, 12:23 pm
