  • Cano dealing with Grade 1 abdominal strain
    Robinson Cano's MRI results revealed a Grade 1 abdominal strain.

    Advice: The Mariners are hopeful that he will be able to avoid the disabled list and should be cleared to DH in 5-6 days. In the meantime, the M's will play a man short on the bench. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago
  • Rangers 'clear-cut favorite' for Cole Hamels
    According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Rangers are "now the clear-cut favorite" to land Cole Hamels.

    Advice: Nightengale says the Dodgers prefer David Price, and the Tigers made it public Wednesday that they're going to begin selling parts. Hamels is also drawing interest from the Astros, but word from Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle is that the Astros expect the ace left-hander to land elsewhere. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Wednesday afternoon that the Giants are "fading" in the Hamels chase. It's all coming together for Texas. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:53 pm

  • Baez goes yard twice in Tuesday's return
    Cubs SS prospect Javier Baez blasted two home runs Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: it was his first game back in Triple-A after missing close to two months with a broken finger. Tuesday marked Baez's third multi-homer game of 2015. He's dominated the minor leagues this season, hitting .325 across 157 at-bats while posting a stellar .399 on base percentage. The 22-year-old has come up in trade rumors and could be dealt ahead of Friday's deadline. Starlin Castro, the Cubs' current shortstop, could also be available. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:27 pm

  • Starling goes for the cycle in Tuesday's win
    Royals OF prospect Bubba Starling hit for the cycle Tuesday in a win for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

    Advice: He finished it off with a ninth-inning single. The cycle was the first in club history. Starling has hit a remarkable .356 in 23 games this month with 12 RBI and 11 extra-base hits.

  • Stephenson dominant in win for Louisville
    Reds RHP prospect Robert Stephenson fanned 10 hitters over eight shutout frames Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Louisville.

He's logged an outstanding 2.40 ERA during his five-game unbeaten steak. The 2011 first-round pick has struck out 9.97 hitters per nine innings this season.

  • Padres talking to Cubs about Javier Baez
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Padres have discussed Javier Baez with the Cubs.

    Advice: FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reported on Monday that they've also talked to the Cubs about Starlin Castro as they look for a long-term solution at shortstop. The Cubs are interested in a few of the Padres' starters, namely Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner, so the two sides could be a match. Baez has spent all season at Triple-A Iowa, batting .317/.387/.572 with 10 homers over 38 games in an injury-shortened campaign. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:39 am

  • Cano has abdominal strain, will undergo MRI
    Robinson Cano is dealing with an abdominal strain and will undergo an MRI.

    Advice: Cano initially was hurt while playing the field on Monday. The ailment isn't considered serious, as the Mariners are saying the MRI is precautionary. He's expected to travel with the M's for their road trip that begins Thursday. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:30 am
  • Astros don't expect to land Cole Hamels
    Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros "remain in the Cole Hamels race" but expect him to land elsewhere.

    Advice: That's seemed to be the feeling for a while, as the Astros have made a nice effort for Hamels but can't seem to convince the left-hander to consider accepting a trade there. The Rangers and Dodgers are looking like the teams to beat for the southpaw. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:10 am
  • Plenty of interest in reliever Jim Johnson
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Braves are "getting a lot of play" on Jim Johnson.

    Advice: It's not a surprise, as Johnson has a 2.25 ERA in a nice bounce-back season and is only making $1.6 million. He'll be used as a setup man wherever he goes, which means his fantasy value is about to take a hit. Arodys Vizcaino is the most likely candidate to take over at closer for the Braves if/when Johnson is dealt. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:04 am
  • Aaron Harang (foot) to start Thursday
    Aaron Harang (foot) will rejoin the Phillies' rotation on Thursday against the Braves.

    Advice: Harang had been slated for a rehab start, but the Phils decided to go ahead and plug him back into the rotation since they needed a starter with Cole Hamels being pushed back. The right-hander has missed four weeks of action with plantar fasciitis and figures to be on a fairly limited pitch count. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:51 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Giants 'fading' in race for Cole Hamels
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants are "fading" in the pursuit of Cole Hamels.

    Advice: It's not a surprise. The Giants would like a frontline starter to pair with Madison Bumgarner, but they have a weak farm system and, thus, can't compete for Hamels if there's a bidding war. San Francisco might have to set their sights a bit lower in their desire for a starter. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:15 am
  • Robinson Cano getting a breather Wednesday
    Robinson Cano is not in the Mariners' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He's just getting a day off. Brad Miller is at second base in Cano's place, while Chris Taylor is handling shortstop. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:11 am
  • Salisbury predicts Cole Hamels to Rangers
    Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com "strongly believes" that the Phillies will trade Cole Hamels to the Rangers.

    Advice: Salisbury is well-connected with the Phillies and it's the second time in the last few days that he's listed the Rangers as the favorites for Hamels' services. The Dodgers will likely be their biggest competitors, with the Astros, Yankees, Giants, Cubs, Red Sox and Diamondbacks also in the mix. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:48 am
  • Corey Dickerson sitting out on Wednesday
    Corey Dickerson is not in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He's on the bench with the Cubs throwing lefty Jon Lester. Drew Stubbs is handling left field in Dickerson's place. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:05 am
  • Report: White Sox will be buyers at deadline
    Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press hears that the White Sox will be buyers at the trade deadline.

    Advice: This comes on the heels of FOX Sports' Jon Morosi saying that he thinks it's likelier that the Tigers trade David Price than the White Sox trade Jeff Samardzija. Chicago has won six straight to creep back into the Wild Card race and it appears they'll be content with a compensation pick for Samardzija rather than a package of prospects. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:03 am
  • No-trade list an issue for Red Sox/Hamels
    Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Cole Hamels' no-trade clause "continues to be a roadblock" when it comes to the Red Sox trying to acquire him.

    Advice: The Red Sox have often been connected to Hamels since last offseason, but Bradford says they "aren’t a likely landing spot" due to them being on the southpaw's no-trade list. The Astros have run into the same problem, as they've pursued Hamels heavily but it doesn't sound like the lefty wants to go there. The Dodgers and Rangers look like the favorites for Hamels at the moment. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:58 am
  • Joe Thatcher released by Astros
    Astros released LHP Joe Thatcher.

    Advice: Thatcher was designated for assignment a week ago despite a decent 3.79 ERA with 22 strikeouts over 19 innings this season. He obviously has his limitations as a left-handed specialist, but someone will pick him up. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:40 am

  • White Sox could hang on to Jeff Samardzija
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi thinks there's a "better chance" that the Tigers trade David Price than the White Sox trade Jeff Samardzija.

    Advice: The White Sox suddenly have a better record than the Tigers after winning six straight and might decide to make a run at a Wild Card spot. It's certainly still possible another club makes an offer for Samardzija that they can't refuse, but the righty has pitched really well of late and Chicago could just settle on receiving draft pick compensation for him if he leaves as a free agent. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:17 am
  • Gregorius has four hits, 3 RBI vs. Rangers
    Didi Gregorius went 4-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored in a lopsided win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gregorius had a three-run triple in the Yankees' 11-run second inning. He added three more singles on the night, raising his batting average nine points with one huge game. Even with nights like Tuesday -- and Monday, when he went 3-for-4 with four RBI -- Gregorius is a defense-first shortstop who is hitting .257/.307/.354 on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Peralta tosses six strong innings to beat SFG
    Wily Peralta allowed two runs in six innings, earning the win on Tuesday against the Giants.

    Advice: Peralta shut the Giants out through six innings, but allowed the first two hitters he faced in the seventh inning to reach base on a walk and a double. Reliever Will Smith came in and allowed both inherited runners to score on out-producing balls in play. Peralta, overall, gave up five hits and two walks while striking out three. He has a solid 3.90 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and a 38/16 K/BB ratio in 60 innings. He'll host the Cubs in his next start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • McHugh allows five runs, gets win vs. Angels
    Collin McHugh allowed five runs over five innings but earned the win Tuesday against the Angels.

    Advice: McHugh wasn't terribly sharp -- he gave up seven hits and walked four in the game -- but he was the sharper of the two starters, and that was good enough to earn him the victory. It was still a less-than-encouraging showing from the 28-year-old, who now owns a 4.43 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 21 starts. He'll look for his 13th win of the year Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Kang blasts game-winning homer against Twins
    Jung-Ho Kang went 2-for-4 with a game-winning home run as the Pirates outlasted the Twins 8-7 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kang was hit by a pitch and scored in the sixth inning and came up with the game tied in the top of the ninth. Against Twins closer Glen Perkins, Kang launched a solo homer to give the Pirates the lead and ultimately the win. The shortstop has seven multi-hit games in his last nine contests, raising his season line to .289/.367/.426 with six homers and 32 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm

  • Dickerson has RBI, run scored against Cubs
    Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dickerson had a single and a double in the game, collecting an RBI on a groundout in the fifth inning. Since returning to the lineup, the 26-year-old is 7-for-16 with multiple hits in three of his four games. The strong return to the lineup has his overall line up to .315/.347/.510. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:36 pm
  • Samardzija allows four runs over eight in win
    Jeff Samardzija allowed four runs over eight innings in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Samardzija cruised through most of the first eight innings, allowing only two runs, but he stumbled trying to close out the game in the ninth. The right-hander allowed a run and another inherited runner scored after he left, depriving him of a quality start and marring his overall line on the night. Samardzija gave up seven hits and a walk in the game, striking out three in what could be his final start with the White Sox. If he's still in a Sox uniform come Sunday, Samardzija will take on the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:15 pm
  • Astros 'making a strong effort' for Hamels
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Astros are "making a strong effort" for Cole Hamels.

    Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported something similar on Tuesday. It's still unknown whether Hamels would wind up approving a deal to Houston, but it appears the Astros are giving it their best shot. The Phillies have reportedly told teams to get their best offers in for Hamels on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:48 pm
  • Cole Hamels' next start pushed to Friday
    Cole Hamels' next start has been pushed to Friday.

    Advice: Hamels is scheduled to start Thursday, but the Phillies obviously don't want to use him one day before the July 31 trade deadline. His start Friday will likely be in a different uniform. The left-hander threw a no-hitter against the Cubs on Saturday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:11 pm
  • Brewers activate Peralta from 15-day DL
    Brewers activated RHP Wily Peralta from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Peralta, who has been out for nearly two months with a left oblique strain, posted a 1.59 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings over three minor league rehab starts. He'll make his return to the Brewers' rotation Tuesday against the Giants. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:10 am
  • Phils want best offers on Hamels by Wednesday
    According to Jayson Stark of ESPN, the Phillies have told several teams interested in Cole Hamels that they'd like to get their "best" offers by Wednesday.

    Advice: Coming off a no-hitter, Hamels is currently scheduled to make his next start Thursday against the Braves. The Phillies would apparently prefer to make a decision before that, but there's a chance this situation could drag into Friday. The Dodgers and Rangers have been considered the favorites to land Hamels in recent days, but the Phillies have also spoken with the Cubs, Giants, Astros, Diamondbacks, Yankees, and Red Sox. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:26 am
  • Giants making 'strong push' for Cole Hamels
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants are making a "strong push" to acquire Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

    Advice: Rosenthal notes that the Giants have $50 million coming off the payroll at the end of the season, so adding Hamels wouldn't break the bank. The Giants' biggest competition might be the division rival Dodgers, though the Rangers, Yankees, Cubs, Diamondbacks, and Astros have also been mentioned as possibilities. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:01 am
  • Cano walks twice, homers, but Mariners lose
    Robinson Cano had a pair of walks and a solo home run in five plate appearances, but the Mariners fell to the Diamondbacks in 10 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Cano delivered a solo home run off of Robbie Ray in the sixth inning to reduce the Mariners' deficit to one run. He's had a torrid July, homering seven times while hitting .347 (33-for-95). As a result, his triple-slash line is up to .265/.309/.416 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:46 pm
  • Gregorius homers, knocks in 4 runs in a win
    Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a two-run single and a two-run home run as the Yankees downed the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Gregorius tied the game at 2-2 in the third inning when he drilled a two-run home run off of Matt Harrison. He added insurance in the seventh inning with a two-run single. It's only the fifth multi-RBI game of the season for the shortstop, who has left Yankees fans pining for Derek Jeter as he's hitting .248/.297/.340 with five home runs and 25 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:31 pm
  • Hamels has told Astros he won't go there
    ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Astros "were told weeks ago" that Cole Hamels would not approve a trade to Houston.

    Advice: It apparently hasn't kept the Astros from pursuing him, as both Stark and his colleague, Jerry Crasnick, are hearing that Houston is making a late push for the left-hander. Whether they'd be able to offer the best package and talk the left-hander into changing his mind remains to be seen. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:09 pm
  • Blue Jays most aggressive on Jeff Samardzija
    According to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com, the Blue Jays have been most aggressive on Jeff Samardzija.

    Advice: Hayes adds that the Giants are also interested. Samardzija owns a 3.91 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 108/26 K/BB ratio in 140 1/3 innings this season with the White Sox and he's been especially dominant lately. The 30-year-old impending free agent should yield a nice return package. It looked for a while like the Pale Hose might have to sell low on him. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:41 am
  • Jim Johnson earns ninth save versus Cards
    Jim Johnson earned his ninth save of the season Sunday in the Braves' win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Johnson surrendered a two-out single to Kolten Wong, but he got Matt Carpenter to fly out to center field to end the minor threat and preserve Atlanta's one-run lead. Johnson now owns a 2.11 ERA in 47 innings of relief this season for the Braves. The 32-year-old right-hander is a strong candidate to be moved ahead of the July 31 trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:28 pm
  • Aaron Harang (foot) set for rehab assignment
    Aaron Harang (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

    Advice: Assuming he doesn't have a setback, it's expected to be his lone rehab outing before rejoining the Phillies' rotation. Harang has missed nearly a month of action with plantar fasciitis. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:29 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Cano slugs three-run homer in M's loss
    Robinson Cano slugged a three-run homer Saturday in the Mariners' loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It was a fourth-inning shot to left field off Jays starter Drew Hutchison. Cano has been producing this entire month and is obviously capable of finishing strong. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:44 pm
  • Wily Peralta (oblique) returns Tuesday vs. SF
    Wily Peralta (oblique) will return to the Brewers' rotation on Tuesday against the Giants.

    Advice: Peralta has been out since late May with a severe left oblique strain. He allowed just two runs and registered a 12/2 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 minor league rehab innings, so it should be safe to start the right-hander out of the gate in fantasy leagues. Milwaukee will roll with a six-man rotation for a bit. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:32 pm
  • Harang (foot) to throw bullpen on Saturday
    Aaron Harang (foot) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: If all goes well, he will then be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Harang has been on the shelf since July 2 due to plantar fasciitis. He's on track to rejoin the Phillies rotation in early August. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:48 am
    15-Day DL
     
  • Rockies activate Corey Dickerson from DL
    Rockies activated OF Corey Dickerson from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Dickerson had been sidelined since mid-June due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He'll immediately jump back into the Rockies lineup, hitting sixth against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds on Friday. Fantasy owners should get him active and into lineups for the weekend series at Coors Field. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:22 pm
  • Jays in 'active discussions' for Samardzija
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Blue Jays "remain in active discussions" with the White Sox about Jeff Samardzija.

    Advice: The Jays will almost surely add an impact starter at the trade deadline and Samardzija could be the most likely target, as they've been linked to him for a while now. The big right-hander has disappointed overall with the White Sox this season but has been terrific of late with a 1.71 ERA in four July starts. Samardzija, of course, will be a free agent after this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:47 am
  • Daniel Robertson's (shoulder) X-ray is clean
    X-rays on Daniel Robertson's right shoulder came back negative.

    Advice: Robertson hurt the shoulder when he crashed into the outfield wall during Wednesday's game. He's expected to be fine but anticipates being unavailable for a few games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:30 am

  • Jeff Samardzija goes eight strong to win
    Jeff Samardzija held the Indians to one run in eight innings Thursday to pick up his seventh victory.

    Advice: It'd be best for Samardzija's future if he got a trade, but he's made that a little less likely to happen by allowing a total of six runs over 31 2/3 innings in his last four starts, three of which turned into wins for the White Sox. It's still more likely than not that he'll go, but the White Sox think they might yet have a wild card run in them. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:14 pm
  • Collin McHugh goes seven strong in win
    Collin McHugh pitched seven innings of two-run ball Wednesday in a victory over the Red Sox.

    Advice: McHugh still has the unimpressive 4.25 ERA, but that's down from 5.04 a month ago. He's won five of his last seven starts, allowing no more than three earned runs in any of them. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:35 pm
  • Dickerson (foot) could return this weekend
    Corey Dickerson (foot) is likely to return to the Rockies' active roster this weekend.

    Advice: Dickerson is 4-for-11 with an RBI, a walk, and two runs scored in three rehab games spread between High-A Modesto and Triple-A Albuquerque. Most important is that he has felt no discomfort in his left foot, which has been suffering from plantar fasciitis all season. Dickerson has appeared in just 38 games for the Rockies, but he has produced an .843 OPS and five home runs though the lingering foot injury. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:26 pm
  • Wily Peralta could make another rehab start
    Wily Peralta (oblique) could make another rehab start.

    Advice: Peralta has allowed just two runs with a 12/2 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 rehab innings so far, going five innings and throwing 74 pitches in his last outing Tuesday. He'll join the Brewers in Arizona this weekend and could possibly start for them on Sunday, but it's possible the club will give him one more rehab start. Peralta has been out since late May with a strained left oblique. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:35 am
  • Johnson works perfect ninth for eighth save
    Jim Johnson worked a scoreless ninth inning against the Dodgers on Tuesday to earn his eighth save of the season.

    Advice: Johnson was his usual efficient self, inducing two ground outs while needing just 10 pitches to seal the deal. The right-hander recently gained mixed league value when he slid into the closer role vacated by the injured Jason Grilli. Johnson owns a 2.15 ERA and 1.22 WHIP to go with the eight saves, and he's a solid if unspectacular option for saves going forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:41 pm
  • Baez (finger) nearing rehab games in AZ
    Javier Baez (finger) is performing the full range of baseball activities in Arizona.

    Advice: Baez should soon begin playing in games for one of the Cubs' low-level minor league affiliates -- probably one in Arizona. He's been out of commission for Triple-A Iowa since June 7 due to a fractured left ring finger. The 22-year-old infield prospect could help the Cubs by the end of season, even if it's only in a role as a bench bat. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:34 pm

  • Astros designate Thatcher for assignment
    Astros designated LHP Joe Thatcher for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Vince Velasquez on the active roster. Thatcher has struggled a bit recently, but owns a decent 3.79 ERA with 22 strikeouts over 19 innings this season in a specialist role. He could draw interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:35 am

  • Johnson escapes trouble for his 7th save
    Jim Johnson saw his way out of trouble, allowing one run while picking up his seventh save of the season in Monday's 7-5 victory against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Johnson, asked to protect a three-run lead, allowed three consecutive singles to load the bases with no outs in the ninth inning. A run scored, but the Braves got two outs on a Howie Kendrick double play. Johnson then got Adrian Gonzalez to ground out to end the threat. The right-hander has gotten the save in both opportunities since taking over for the injured Jason Grilli. The 44-49 Braves still might trade him if the right offer comes along. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:52 pm
  • Cano homers again, but Mariners fall to DET
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Tigers on Monday.

    Advice: Cano tied the game at three apiece with his solo home run in the fifth inning against Alfredo Simon. It's his fifth home run of the month and ninth of the season, as the second baseman appears to have finally discovered his power stroke. Cano still owns a disappointing .255/.294/.393 batting line with 35 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:21 pm
  • Aaron Harang (foot) nearing rehab assignment
    Aaron Harang (foot) is close to beginning a rehab assignment.

    Advice: Harang hasn't missed much time with plantar fasciitis, so it's possible he'll be ready to rejoin the rotation after just one rehab start. The right had really been struggling of late before going on the DL, putting up a 6.94 ERA over his last eight outings. Rotoworld.com Jul 20, 1:29 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • CHW listening; Samardzija 'most likely to go'
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the White Sox are in "listening mode" and Jeff Samardzija is "most likely to go."

    Advice: Samardzija is a free agent this offseason and the White Sox currently stand 13 games back of the Royals in the American League Central standings. There's no reason to keep him around beyond the July 31 deadline if he can fetch some young talent. The 30-year-old right-hander has been good but not great in his first year with Chicago, carrying a 4.08 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 105/26 K/BB ratio through 132 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Jul 20, 8:29 am
  • Bubba Starling (knee) expected to be OK
    Royals outfield prospect Bubba Starling isn't expected to miss much time after suffering a bruised right knee on Saturday with Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

    Advice: Starling collided with the outfield wall while trying to make a catch and then bruised his knee when he slammed to the ground. He escaped serious injury, though, and could play as soon as Sunday. Rotoworld.com Jul 19, 11:12 am

  • Bubba Starling leaves game on cart
    Royals outfield prospect Bubba Starling had to leave the field on a cart after colliding with the outfield wall on Saturday with Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

    Advice: Starling was trying to bring a home run ball back and collided hard with the wall before then landing on his right knee. It's unclear at this point what and how severe his injury is. Starling's prospect status has bounce back this season, as he's hit .291/.360/.471 with seven homers between High- and Double-A after a disappointing 2014. Rotoworld.com Jul 19, 6:39 am
