  • Braves recall Ryan Weber from Gwinnett
    Braves recalled RHP Ryan Weber from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Weber will take over the bullpen spot left vacant by Jason Grilli, who was traded to the Blue Jays on Tuesday evening. Weber has allowed nine runs in 7 2/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level. 47 minutes ago
  • Mike Minor has some rotator cuff fatigue
    Mike Minor is experiencing fatigue in his rotator cuff and will be examined by Royals doctors.

    Advice: Royals manager Ned Yost told reporters Tuesday that it's nothing serious, but there's no way of saying that for sure until Minor undergoes some tests. Minor missed the entire 2015 season with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He is currently on the 60-day major league disabled list. Today, 3:07 pm
    60-Day DL
    5:15 pm vs TB
  • Maeda (hand) questionable Thursday vs. CHC
    Kenta Maeda has some residual swelling in his right hand and might not pitch Thursday.

    Advice: Maeda was struck in the hand by a comebacker in his last start Saturday against the Mets. X-rays turned up negative, but even a little swelling can affect the right-hander's delivery. Maeda was lined up to start Thursday's series finale at Wrigley Field. Today, 3:02 pm
    5:05 pm @ChC
  • Pagan (hamstring) ready in one week?
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy is hopeful Angel Pagan (hamstring) will be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible.

    Advice: That would be June 8. Pagan has been pretty productive this season when healthy, but left hamstring problems have limited the veteran outfielder to 35 games. Jarrett Parker and Gregor Blanco have been sharing left field duties for San Francisco lately. Today, 2:54 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Ethier (leg) still not cleared for activities
    Andre Ethier (leg) still hasn't been cleared to begin baseball-related activities.

    Advice: Ethier was given a 10-14 week recovery timetable when he fractured his right tibia in March, but that can be trashed now. The veteran outfielder would have to hustle to make it back before the All-Star break. Today, 2:43 pm
    60-Day DL
    5:05 pm x @ChC
  • Ackley (shoulder) needs season-ending surgery
    Dustin Ackley will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the torn labrum in his right shoulder.

    Advice: Ackley suffered the torn labrum (and a shoulder dislocation) on a slide Sunday against the Rays. He'll finish up 2016 with a .148 batting average and .390 OPS in 28 games. The 28-year-old is a definite non-tender candidate. Today, 2:26 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Bryan Morris opts to undergo back surgery
    Bryan Morris has opted to undergo back surgery.

    Advice: Morris told reporters last week that surgery was probably the only option to repair his lumbar disk herniation, and further testing and exams proved that to be accurate. Marlins manager Don Mattingly said he's hopeful the right-hander can return this season. Today, 1:39 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Rangers may keep Jurickson Profar in majors
    According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Rangers have discussed keeping Jurickson Profar around after Rougned Odor's suspension ends.

    Advice: Hanser Alberto would also remain on the active roster and the Rangers would go with a seven-man bullpen. Profar is 6-for-18 (.333) since his callup on Friday and he was slashing 284/.356/.426 with five homers and four steals in 189 plate appearances this season with Triple-A Round Rock. The former top prospect might have finally found some footing at the major league level, though it's still pretty loose. Today, 1:36 pm
  • James Loney added to Mets' 25-man roster
    James Loney has officially been added to the Mets' 25-man roster.

    Advice: Loney was acquired from the Padres on Saturday for cash and will be thrown into the Mets' starting lineup Tuesday night against the White Sox. He should start regularly at first base against right-handed pitching, at least until Lucas Duda (back) returns. Loney was hitting the ball well at Triple-A El Paso before the trade and is worthy of consideration in deeper fantasy formats now that he's in a good position for playing time. Today, 1:10 pm
  • Giancarlo Stanton (side) out again on Tuesday
    Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the Marlins' lineup again Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Stanton has now missed seven straight starts due soreness in his right side, but the Marlins continue to say that he's not too far off. Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting leadoff. Today, 12:14 pm
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Marlins activate Mike Dunn from 15-day DL
    Marlins activated LHP Mike Dunn from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Dunn has been out all year with a forearm strain, but he's finally ready to make his season debut. The southpaw tossed three scoreless innings with a 5/0 K/BB ratio with High-A Jupiter during his minor league rehab assignment. Today, 12:07 pm
  • Kemp serving as DH on Tuesday
    Matt Kemp will serve as the designated hitter in Tuesday's interleague contest against the Mariners.

    Advice: Christian Bethancourt was the DH on Monday, but he's behind the plate in Tuesday's game while Derek Norris is on the bench. Travis Jankowski is starting in right field. Today, 9:44 am
  • Gattis starting behind plate Tuesday
    Evan Gattis will start behind the plate Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: This will be his fourth start behind the plate. Gattis is batting .298 with four homers and a .961 OPS in 52 plate appearances since returning from the minors and he's on the verge of an uptick of value when he gains catcher-eligibility in fantasy leagues. Today, 9:37 am
  • Castillo not in Tuesday's lineup
    Welington Castillo is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Astros.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest. Chris Herrmann will start behind the plate and bat sixth against right-hander Lance McCullers. Today, 9:28 am
  • Santana (shoulder) to begin rehab stint Tue.
    Domingo Santana (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Biloxi.

    Advice: Santana has been out since May 18 with a lingering injury to his right shoulder. The 23-year-old should be back with the Brewers within a week or so, but Jonathan Villar has run away with the leadoff spot during his absence. Today, 8:11 am
    15-Day DL
    5:10 pm vs x StL
  • Ackley diagnosed with torn labrum in shoulder
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Monday that Dustin Ackley (shoulder) could require surgery.

    Advice: Ackley, who was placed on the disabled list Monday, was diagnosed with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Either way, he's facing a lengthy absence. There should be more clarity on his status in the coming days. Yesterday, 2:26 pm
    15-Day DL
    Bot 2, 1-0 x @Tor
  • Stanton (side) out again Monday versus PIT
    Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the Marlins' starting lineup again on Monday.

    Advice: Stanton was able to take live batting practice Sunday, but the Marlins will give his sore right side at least one more day of rest. Cole Gillespie will start in right field and bat seventh Monday night against the Pirates. Marcell Ozuna is hitting cleanup. Yesterday, 12:34 pm
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Yankees put Dustin Ackley (shoulder) on DL
    Yankees placed INF/OF Dustin Ackley on the 15-day disabled list with a dislocated shoulder.

    Advice: Ackley hurt himself on a slide Sunday against the Rays. It's not clear how long he might be out, but it figures to be more than 15 days. Rob Refsnyder has been called up in a corresponding 25-man roster move. Yesterday, 11:16 am
    15-Day DL
    Bot 2, 1-0 x @Tor
  • Evan Gattis not in Astros' lineup on Monday
    Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The game is being played at Chase Field under National League rules, so Gattis can't DH. Tyler White is starting at catcher and Jason Castro will be behind the plate. Yesterday, 10:16 am
  • Loney expected to be activated on Tuesday
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that he expects James Loney to be activated on Tuesday.

    Advice: Loney is expected to see most of his work against right-handed pitching, so he wouldn't have started on Monday anyways against left-hander Jose Quintana. Loney was hitting well for the Padres at Triple-A El Paso, slashing .342/.373/.424 prior to the trade. Sunday, 2:36 pm
  • Kenta Maeda plans to make his start Thursday
    Kenta Maeda said Sunday that his hand is feeling much better and he plans to make his scheduled start on Thursday.

    Advice: Maeda was drilled by a comebacker on Saturday, but was able to remain in the game and post-game X-rays came back negative. The 28-year-old owns a 3.00 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 51/17 K/BB ratio across 57 innings in his 10 starts this season. Sunday, 2:08 pm
    5:05 pm @ChC
  • Dustin Ackley leaves game with shoulder issue
    Dustin Ackley was removed from Sunday's game against the Rays with a shoulder injury.

    Advice: Ackley suffered the injury while sliding. He's heading for an MRI and could be looking at a possible stint on the disabled list. Expect an update from the Yankees on his status after learning the MRI results. Sunday, 1:19 pm
    15-Day DL
    Bot 2, 1-0 x @Tor
  • Stanton (side) to take batting practice Sun.
    Giancarlo Stanton (side) will take batting practice Sunday.

    Advice: Stanton is out of the lineup again, but he could be back in there as soon as Monday if BP goes well. The outfielder hasn't played since Tuesday because of soreness in his right side. Sunday, 11:33 am
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Giancarlo Stanton (side) out again on Sunday
    Giancarlo Stanton (side) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Stanton hasn't played since Tuesday because of soreness in his right side. He's done some hitting in recent days, so it does appear some progress is being made. Ichiro Suzuki is in right field again in Stanton's place. Sunday, 10:38 am
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Welington Castillo not in Sunday's lineup
    Welington Castillo is absent from the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting a simple day off. Chris Herrmann is catching Archie Bradley. Jake Lamb is also sitting out for the D'Backs, as Phil Gosselin is holding down third base. Sunday, 9:54 am
  • Profar has triple, two runs scored vs. Bucs
    Jurickson Profar went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: In just his second game back with the Rangers, Profar made his presence felt, hitting a one-out triple and scoring in the seventh inning. He has three hits in nine at-bats since being recalled, and he's expected to fill in at second base -- and atop the Rangers' order -- while Rougned Odor is serving his suspension. If Profar performs well during the audition, he could force Rangers' brass to make a tough decision when Odor returns. Saturday, 8:25 pm
  • Maeda's X-rays on hand come back negative
    Kenta Maeda underwent X-rays on his right hand after Saturday's win over the Mets, but they came back negative.

    Advice: Maeda got struck by a sharp comebacker on Saturday. He stayed in the game, and the post-game X-rays came back negative. Manager Dave Roberts indicated that he should make his next start without issue. Saturday, 7:56 pm
    5:05 pm @ChC
  • Profar leads off on Saturday vs Pirates
    Jurickson Profar will bat in the lead-off role in Saturday's contest against the Pirates.

    Advice: Profar was hitting .284/.356/.426 in Triple-A Round Rock, so it's hardly a stretch to see him succeeding in the lead-off role in the majors. This placement in the lineup illustrates the Rangers' faith (as well as the faith fantasy owners should have) in the 23-year-old, even if his stay in the big leagues is likely to be short. Saturday, 1:59 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. Saturday, 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. Saturday, 11:18 am
  • Giancarlo Stanton remains out for Marlins
    Giancarlo Stanton (side) is once again absent from the Marlins starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: The slugger hasn't played since Tuesday due to soreness in his right side. He was able to take swings in the batting cage on Friday, but still appears to be at least a day or two away from a return to the Marlins lineup. Saturday, 10:00 am
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Giancarlo Stanton (side) hits in the cage
    Giancarlo Stanton (side) took swings in a batting cage on Friday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Tuesday due to soreness in his right side and is out of the lineup again Friday. Stanton would appear to still be at least a day or two away, but he's making some progress. Friday, 2:56 pm
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Jurickson Profar batting leadoff for Rangers
    Rangers recalled INF Jurickson Profar from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Profar is starting at second base and batting leadoff for the Rangers on Friday and could remain in both places for the next week while Rougned Odor serves his suspension. After missing two seasons with ongoing shoulder issues, Profar has batted .284/.356/.426 with five homers and four steals across 189 plate appearances with Round Rock this season. His stay with the big club could be short, but he's worth owning in fantasy leagues while he's up. Friday, 12:58 pm
  • Giancarlo Stanton (side) out again Friday
    Giancarlo Stanton (side) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Stanton hasn't played since Tuesday due to soreness in his right side. The Marlins haven't indicated to this point that a trip to the disabled list is a possibility, but obviously the likelihood increases the longer this drags on. Ichiro Suzuki is again filling in in right field and leading off. Friday, 11:58 am
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Bryan Morris (back) might need surgery
    Bryan Morris (back) acknowledged he might need surgery.

    Advice: In fact, Morris went as far as to say that "surgery is the only option that can fix what is the issue." Manager Don Mattingly agreed that Morris' lumbar disc herniation probably isn't a "15-day thing." All signs are pointing to an extended absence for the 29-year-old. Thursday, 4:46 pm
    15-Day DL
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs Pit
  • Jurickson Profar to fill in for Rougned Odor
    The Rangers will call up Jurickson Profar from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

    Advice: That's when Rougned Odor will begin serving his seven-game suspension for punching Jose Bautista in the face. Profar is a shortstop by trade but will handle second base in Odor's absence. The 23-year-old hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2013. Profar could boost his trade value with a strong showing over the next week. He's played reasonably well for Round Rock this year, hitting .284 with five homers and four steals. The Rangers haven't announced who will go down in the corresponding roster move. Thursday, 2:30 pm
  • Marlins place Bryan Morris (back) on DL
    Marlins placed RHP Bryan Morris on the 15-day disabled list with a lumbar disc herniation.

    Advice: Nick Wittgren has been called up from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding roster move. Morris also dealt with back problems in 2015 and doesn't carry an exact recovery timetable. It could be a while. He had registered a 3.06 ERA through 17 2/3 innings this year out of the Miami bullpen. Thursday, 7:57 am
    15-Day DL
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs Pit
  • Stanton (side) out again Thursday vs. Rays
    Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday versus the Rays.

    Advice: Stanton also sat out Wednesday after complaining of soreness in his right side. He has been struggling offensively since a collision with teammate Marcell Ozuna on May 15 in Washington, D.C. All of this seems related. Thursday, 7:50 am
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Welington Castillo getting day off Thursday
    Welington Castillo will get a day of rest Thursday.

    Advice: Chris Herrmann is starting at catcher and batting sixth in the matinee versus Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole. Castillo should return to the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Padres. He has an .810 OPS, seven home runs, and 20 RBI in 36 games this season. Thursday, 7:32 am
  • Evan Gattis homers, doubles in victory
    Evan Gattis had a two-run homer and a double to help the Astros edge the Orioles 4-3 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gattis made his second start of the year at catcher in this one. He's 11-for-31 with four homers since returning from the minors on May 16, so whether he's catching or DHing, he's going to be in the starting lineup most of the time for the foreseeable future. Wednesday, 8:21 pm
  • Giancarlo Stanton feeling right side soreness
    Marlins manager Don Mattingly said that Giancarlo Stanton is dealing with "a little soreness" on his right side.

    Advice: Stanton is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays, with Ichiro Suzuki starting in right field and batting leadoff. It is not known if this current bout of soreness for Stanton is related to a mid-May outfield collision with teammate Marcell Ozuna. Unless further word surfaces, the slugger should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Wednesday, 2:29 pm
    Bot 2, 0-0 vs x Pit
  • Giancarlo Stanton not in Marlins' lineup Wed.
    Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Ichiro Suzuki will play right field and bat leadoff versus Rays right-hander Matt Andriese. Stanton hit his 12th home run of the season on Tuesday night, but he had been in a minor slump since an outfield collision with Marcell Ozuna on May 15 in Washington, D.C. He'll take a day of mental and physical rest. Wednesday, 11:39 am

  • Giants put Pagan (hamstring) on 15-day DL
    Giants placed OF Angel Pagan on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

    Advice: Pagan strained the same hamstring in early May and wound up spending two weeks on the Giants' active roster as an inactive player. This time the club has decided to go ahead and put him on the disabled list. Jarrett Parker was called up from Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding roster move. Tuesday, 2:02 pm
    15-Day DL
    Bot 3, 0-0 x @Atl
  • Dunn (forearm) to begin rehab stint Tuesday
    Mike Dunn (forearm) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Jupiter.

    Advice: Dunn, who is coming back from a forearm strain, is expected to throw around 20 pitches. The plan calls for him to get the day off Wednesday before pitching again on Thursday. The southpaw could be back with the Marlins next week if all goes well. Tuesday, 10:33 am
  • 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. Tuesday, 8:57 am
  • Angel Pagan to undergo MRI on hamstring
    Angel Pagan will undergo an MRI on his left hamstring on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pagan aggravated the hamstring during Monday's game against the Padres. He managed to avoid the disabled list the first time around, but the Giants could be forced to make a move to add another outfielder to the mix. Tuesday, 5:46 am
    15-Day DL
    Bot 3, 0-0 x @Atl
  • Angel Pagan leaves game with apparent injury
    Angel Pagan left Monday's game after eight innings with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Pagan left after grounding out to end the eighth inning. He didn't appear comfortable running, which suggests that he could be dealing with a hamstring issue again. Brandon Belt replaced him in left field while Conor Gillespie took over at first base. Monday, 9:41 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Mike Minor (shoulder) throwing mid-90s
    Mike Minor (shoulder) was clocked in the mid-90s during his rehab start with Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

    Advice: It was reported that Minor was touching 96 mph in extended spring training and the velocity has evidently carried over into official games. It's a surprise, as it's actually noticeably harder than he threw prior to labrum surgery. Minor credits the Royals' medical staff with his velocity increase. "I think it’s because of those guys in there — the medical staff," Minor said. "(I’m) just doing hip and spine programs and kind of stretching more. (I’m) focusing on smaller muscles, and things that can help me on the mound." Minor holds a 4.97 ERA and has walked eight over 12 2/3 rehab frames to this point, but he's also struck out 17. Dillon Gee and Danny Duffy have pitched well since being thrust into the Royals' rotation, but Minor could get a shot before long. May 22, 7:30 am
    60-Day DL
    5:15 pm vs TB
  • Pagan (hamstring) expected to return Sunday
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy expects Angel Pagan (hamstring) to start Sunday's game against the Cubs.

    Advice: Pagan got the day off Saturday after feeling renewed soreness in his hamstring. Obviously it wasn't a major setback as Pagan was available to pinch-hit and should start Sunday's series finale. Hunter Pence also sat out Saturday's game with hamstring soreness. His status for Sunday is up in the air. May 21, 8:40 pm
    15-Day DL
    Bot 3, 0-0 x @Atl
  • Mike Dunn (forearm) to begin rehab Tuesday
    Mike Dunn (forearm) pitched in a simulated game on Saturday.

    Advice: He threw a total of 27 pitches—10 warmups and 17 against a live hitter. Dunn will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter on Tuesday and expects to return to the majors on June 1 or June 2. The left-hander is coming back from a forearm strain he suffered in spring training. May 21, 8:12 pm
  • Angel Pagan out with sore hamstring Saturday
    Angel Pagan (hamstring) is not in the Giants' starting lineup Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Pagan missed time with a strained hamstring earlier this month and it looks like it's still bothering him. With Pagan sidelined, Kelby Tomlinson will make his first career start in left field on Saturday. Pagan should be available to pinch-hit and could be back in the lineup as early as Sunday. May 21, 2:19 pm
