  • Gregerson grabs third save in win vs Mariners
    Luke Gregerson picked up his third save of the season, closing out the Astros' 7-5 win over the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Gregerson brought the tying run to the plate after issuing a two-out walk to Kyle Seager, but he got Seth Smith to strike out swinging to end the ballgame. Gregerson remains unscored upon while converting all three save opportunities with a 7/1 K/BB ratio in seven innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Iwakuma mediocre again in a no-decision
    Hisashi Iwakuma turned in his third consecutive mediocre start, giving up four runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Iwakuma has been rather home run prone to start the year. He allowed two more on Monday night, giving him five in 16 1/3 innings to start the season. Overall, he gave up five hits, walked none, and struck out three. Iwakuma owns a 6.61 ERA and he has a good shot at lowering it as his next start comes against the Twins at home over the weekend.

  • Wojciechowski lasts 4 innings in no-decision
    Asher Wojciechowski got a no-decision in Monday's win against the Mariners, yielding four runs in four innings.

    Advice: The right-hander allowed a bunch of base runners, as the Mariners racked up eight hits and drew two walks. Wojciechowski struck out six on the evening. Getting through the Mariners' tough lineup without allowing any home runs is an achievement at least. He'll get the Athletics on Oakland in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • Rasmus homers as Astros top the Mariners
    Colby Rasmus went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win against the Mariners.

    Advice: Rasmus broke a 2-2 tie with a fifth-inning home run off of Hisashi Iwakuma. As usual, he hasn't done much in the average or on-base percentage departments, but has hit for good power. Rasmus has a .200/.273/.500 with two home runs, a double, and a triple in 33 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Valbuena powers Astros with a pair of homers
    Luis Valbuena hit a pair of solo home runs and lifted a sacrifice fly to help the Astros beat the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Valbuena hit his first homer in the first inning off of Hisashi Iwakuma and his second in the eighth inning against Danny Farquhar. Valbuena, pushed out of the picture with the Cubs by the impending arrival of Kris Bryant, has been a nice find for the Astros. He has five home runs, seven RBI, and a .244/.304/.634 slash line in 46 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Shoemaker struggles again in a loss to A's
    Matt Shoemaker struggled on Monday, allowing five runs in three innings as the Angels lost 6-3 to the Athletics.

    Advice: Shoemaker allowed seven hits -- including home runs to Stephen Vogt and Marcus Semien -- while walking three and striking out two. The right-hander started the fourth inning but was promptly replaced after issuing a leadoff home run to Semien. Shoemaker owns a 6.46 ERA, which he'll try to lower in a weekend home start against the Rangers next. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Graveman needs 73 pitches to get thru 3 IP
    Kendall Graveman was inefficient in a no-decision against the Angels on Monday, throwing 73 pitches while allowing three runs (two earned) in three-plus innings.

    Advice: Graveman issued back-to-back walks to start the fourth inning before he was replaced by Dan Otero. The right-hander allowed four hits in total along with three walks and two strikeouts. Despite a strong spring showing, Graveman has not looked good in two of his three starts thus far. He'll try to improve on his 6.94 ERA in his next start against the Astros at home. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:15 pm
  • Semien homers as Athletics beat the Angels
    Marcus Semien went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday in a win over the Angels.

    Advice: Semien went yard off of Matt Shoemaker in the fourth inning to boost the Athletics' lead to 5-3. The shortstop had been in a bit of a funk, going just 2-for-17 in his previous five games entering Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Clippard escapes trouble for his first save
    Tyler Clippard got his first save of the season, but had to escape some ninth-inning trouble to help the Athletics top the Angels on Monday.

    Advice: Protecting a three-run lead, Clippard issued a leadoff walk to Erick Aybar, then walked Johnny Giavotella with two outs. He was able to get Kole Calhoun to line out to left field to end the game. It's only the second save of the year for the Athletics as they have massively outscored their opponents in their seven wins. Clippard will continue to get the ball in save opportunities when they present themselves. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:10 pm
  • Vogt powers A's to win with a 3-run homer
    Stephen Vogt walked and slugged a three-run home run in four at-bats as the Athletics won against the Angels on Monday.

    Advice: Vogt put the A's back on top 4-2 with his three-run home run off of Matt Shoemaker in the third inning. The catcher has been terrific to start the year, hitting .366/.435/.780 with four home runs and 12 RBI to begin the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Dickerson nursing 'mild' plantar fasciitis
    Corey Dickerson had to leave Monday's game versus the Padres due to what Rockies manager Walt Weiss referred to as "mild" plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

    Advice: That Weiss is calling the ailment mild suggests that they'll try to avoid putting Dickerson on the disabled list for the time being. It's definitely and injury that can be nagging, though, so fantasy owners should have a contingency plan in place. Dickerson is batting .286/.314/.510 with two homers and 10 RBI this season. Drew Stubbs would stand to gain the extra playing time while Dickerson is out. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Alonso plates three runs in rout of Rockies
    Yonder Alonso plated three runs in a 2-for-4 effort as the Padres ran roughshod over the Rockies 14-3 on Monday.

    Advice: Alonso singled in two runs in the first inning and added a sacrifice fly in the second. The first baseman entered the season as one of the weaker-hitting players at his position but has been on fire in his first 52 plate appearances, carrying a .364/.453/.477 triple-slash line with one home run and seven RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Despaigne superb again as Padres top Rockies
    Odrisamer Despaigne picked up his second win of the season against the Rockies on Monday, limiting them to two runs in 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Both runs scored in the fourth inning, when the Rockies enjoyed a pair of RBI singles, but they were too far behind for it to matter at that point. Despaigne gave up six hits and walked two while striking out five on the night. The right-hander has been excellent in three starts, owning a 1.47 ERA with a 0.34 WHIP and a 9/4 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings. Despaigne will have to work against a tough Dodgers lineup at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Cubs to promote top prospect Russell
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Cubs plan to call up infield prospect Addison Russell.

    Advice: Russell has played just five games at second base, but the Cubs have apparently seen enough that they think he's ready to help at the position in the majors. It certainly wouldn't be hard for him to represent an upgrade, as journeyman Jonathan Herrera has been seeing most of the playing time there of late. Russell is just 21, but he's a career .301/.377/.520 hitter so far in the minors and the consensus among scouts is that his bat his major league-ready. He needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.

  • Norris doubles twice, scores 3 times in win
    Derek Norris doubled twice and singled in five at-bats in Monday's trampling of the Rockies.

    Advice: Norris scored all three times he was on base and even knocked in a run with a double in the fifth inning. Most of the offense Norris has shown so far has been in the form of singles, but he still boasts a productive .314/.340/.412 triple-slash line in 51 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Kemp knocks in 4 runs as Padres rout Rockies
    Matt Kemp had a big night at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a two-run double and a pair of RBI singles in Monday's win against the Rockies.

    Advice: Kemp started the onslaught of runs with a two-run double, sparking a five-run first inning. He added RBI singles in the second and fifth innings as well as the Padres went on to score 14 runs. Kemp is making quite an impression with his new team, batting .368/.393/.561 with 13 RBI in 61 plate appearances to begin the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Justin Upton exits in fourth inning
    Justin Upton left Monday's game versus the Rockies in the fourth inning.

    Advice: It's certainly possible that the Padres were just being careful here since they had a big lead, as Upton was returning to the lineup after missing a game with a sore quad. The club should give an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:47 pm
  • Kennedy 'looked good' in extended spring game
    Padres manager Bud Black said that Ian Kennedy (hamstring) "looked good" during an 81-pitch appearance in an extended spring training game Monday.

    Advice: "He looked good, [threw] all his pitches," Black said. "He had a few strikeouts. They nicked him for a couple runs, but overall he's throwing the ball good, no issues with the hamstring." Black wouldn't officially confirm that Kennedy was slated to rejoin the rotation on Saturday against the Dodgers when first eligible, but all signs point to it happening. Odrisamer Despaigne will head back to the bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • DeSclafani fires 8 shutout innings vs. MIL
    Anthony DeSclafani held the Brewers scoreless over eight innings on Monday as the Reds won 6-1.

    Advice: Though it was against the lowly Brewers, DeSclafani gave up only two hits and a walk while striking out five. DeSclafani was a popular sleeper pick coming into the season and he's already paying dividends. The right-hander owns a 0.86 ERA, a 0.62 WHIP, and a 16/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings. DeSclafani will attempt to remain undefeated in his next start at home versus the Cubs. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:59 pm
  • Nolan Arenado scratched with sore wrist
    Nolan Arenado was scratched from Monday's lineup with a sore left wrist.

    Advice: It's not clear at this point how Arenado injured the wrist or how serious the setback might be. The Rockies should provide an update on the third baseman shortly. Rafael Ynoa took Arenado's spot at the hot corner. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:38 pm
  • Addison Russell playing some 2B at Triple-A
    Cubs shortstop prospect Addison Russell has started at second base in his last five games for Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: It's big news, obviously, since that's the position Russell probably has the best chance to crack at the major league level at the moment. "Being a little bit more proactive regarding prepping him for a need that might be open here," manager Joe Maddon said Monday. Russell is hitting .297/.308/.432 with one homer in the early going for Iowa and could potentially challenge for a promotion before long. Rotoworld.com

  • Justin Upton (quad) returns to Padres' lineup
    Justin Upton (quad) is back in the Padres' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Upton missed Sunday's game with a minor quad ailment, but he tested things out prior to Monday's contest and was cleared to return. The outfielder sports a .326/.373/.630 batting line with three home runs in the early going this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Machado goes 0-for-3 in O's loss to Red Sox
    Manny Machado went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the Orioles' loss to the Red Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Machado is just 7-for-45 this season and owns a troubling .156/.231/.244 overall slash line. He showed some signs of life late last week, but that has not carried over. The 22-year-old third baseman appeared in just 82 games in 2014 because of knee injuries. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:22 pm
  • Blevins to have splint on forearm for 6 weeks
    Jerry Blevins will have a splint on his fractured left forearm for the next six weeks.

    Advice: Blevins should be able to resume throwing once those six weeks are over, but then he'll need at least another two weeks to rebuild his arm strength. The left-handed reliever suffered a distal radius fracture Sunday when he got struck by a comebacker and can be ruled out until at least mid-June. He had rattled off seven scoreless appearances this season for the Mets. Rotoworld.com

  • Adam Duvall hits for the cycle in Triple-A
    Giants prospect Adam Duvall blasted five hits Sunday for Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: He hit for the first cycle in River Cats' history. Duvall is quickly outgrowing Triple-A. The 26-year-old ranks second in the Pacific League in both RBI (14) and batting average (.457). Duvall hit .192 in 28 games for the Giants in 2014 and should get another chance with the big club this year. He's listed as San Francisco's 19th-best prospect on MLB.com. Rotoworld.com

  • Beachy (elbow) on track for June debut
    Brandon Beachy has advanced to bullpen sessions in his ongoing recovery from Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: "Everything is good," Beachy told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday. "I'm really happy." If everything continues to go smoothly, the 28-year-old righty could be an option for the Dodgers' starting rotation by early June. He signed a one-year, $2.75 million free agent contract with LA in late February. The deal includes a vesting option for 2016. Rotoworld.com

  • James Loney (oblique) set for rehab games
    James Loney (oblique) will play a rehab game or two this week for High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Loney is eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday, and it sounds like he'll be ready. "It's been hard, just sitting there and watching games," Loney said of the first DL stint of his career. "It goes by. It's just one of those things." He suffered a strained oblique during batting practice before the Rays' second game of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Jerry Blevins suffers fractured left forearm
    X-rays have revealed that Jerry Blevins has a fractured left forearm.

    Advice: Blevins suffered the injury when he was hit by a comebacker Sunday. It's a big blow to the Mets' bullpen that already lost lefty Josh Edgin for the season. A timetable for the reliever isn't known at this point, but obviously he's looking at an extended absence. Blevins is unscored upon in seven appearances this season. Rotoworld.com

    Jerry Blevins had to exit Sunday's game against the Marlins after being hit on the left wrist by a comebacker.

    Advice: Blevins was able to recover and make the play, but he then walked off the field. It's possible the reliever will need X-rays, but the Mets should provide an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Justin Upton (quad) not in Sunday's lineup
    Justin Upton (quad) is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Upton tweaked his quad in the ninth inning Saturday but remained in the game and even doubled in the 10th. He'll be fine but needs a day or two of rest. Will Venable is handling left field Sunday. The Padres are also going with Yangervis Solarte over Yonder Alonso at first base and Clint Barmes over Alexi Amarista at shortstop. Rotoworld.com

  • Justin Upton day-to-day due to quad strain
    Justin Upton is day-to-day with a strained quad.

    Advice: It's unclear when the injury occurred as Upton never left Saturday's game against the Cubs. Upton has been his usual productive self this season, hitting .326 with three home runs and eight RBI. Will Venable could see time in left field if Upton has to sit out a few games. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:43 pm
  • Matt Kemp blasts two-run homer vs. Cubs
    Matt Kemp went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: The first-inning blast off Kyle Hendricks was his first home run of the season. Kemp was very productive during the second half last year and he has largely picked up from where he left off with an impressive .340/.358/.540 batting line over his first 12 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:37 pm
  • Derek Norris not in Padres lineup Saturday
    Derek Norris is not in the Padres starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Cubs.

    Advice: It's a routine day of rest for Norris being a day game after a night game, but it's also noteworthy that it will be the second straight time that Will Nieves has caught for Tyson Ross. Expect to see Norris back in there on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:34 am
  • Stephen Vogt homers twice as Athletics fall
    Stephen Vogt delivered the first multi-homer game of his career in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Vogt followed a solo blast by Ike Davis with one of his own off Jeremy Guthrie in the fourth inning to tie the game at 3-3. He'd later tag Guthrie again in the seventh for another solo shot, once again bringing the A's even at 4-4. He finished the career night 3-for-4 and is now hitting an impressive .353/.421/.735 with eight RBI in his first season as the A's full-time starting catcher. Rotoworld.com

  • Asher Wojciechowski recalled from Triple-A
    Astros recalled RHP Asher Wojciechowski from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Wojciechowski had just been sent down Tuesday, but he returns to replace the injured Brad Peacock (intercostal). He figures to serve as the team's fifth starter. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:51 pm
  • Kennedy (hamstring) to appear in ext. spring
    Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will throw 75-90 pitches in an extended spring training game on Monday.

    Advice: He was cleared for game action after getting through a bullpen session Friday with no issues. That the Padres have decided to give him an extended spring training start rather than send him on an official rehab assignment should be irrelevant. Kennedy will be eligible for activation five days after Monday's appearance and should be penciled in to rejoin the rotation on April 25 versus the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday that James Loney (oblique) might be ready when eligible.

    Advice: Loney was placed on the 15-day disabled list April 7, so the first day he can be activated is April 22. The first baseman is working his way back from a right oblique strain. It was called mild from the jump. Rotoworld.com

  • 3B Arenado belts third homer of the season
    Nolan Arenado spanked a three-run homer in Wednesday's victory over the Giants.

    Advice: He finished 1-for-4, with the three-run bomb -- courtesy of a sluggish Tim Lincecum slider -- the difference in a 4-2 win. Arenado and his offensive mates are apparently trying to revive the Blake Street Bomber moniker of Rockies' past. The young third baseman is slashing .324/.395/.735 and the Rockies are off to a 7-2 start, including a stunning 6-0 on the road, fresh off a sweep in San Francisco of the defending champs. Can the Rockies keep it up? Doubtful. Can Arenado? A monster season isn't out of the question. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:14 pm
  • Upton terrorizes former team, Pads top 'Backs
    Justin Upton went 3-for-4 and clubbed a solo homer against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The eighth inning blast off Randall Delgado broke a 2-2 tie and ultimately won the game for the Padres, who brought on fellow former Brave Craig Kimbrel for a quick save in the ninth. Upton went 5-for-11 in the series against the Diamondbacks with a pair of homers. The Padres now embark upon a road trip 6-4, including 5-2 at home. Their stud new acquisition has hit safely in all 10 of those games. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:05 pm
  • Manny Machado hits first homer
    Manny Machado hit his first homer and walked Wednesday versus the Yankees.

    Advice: After opening the season 0-for-15, Machado has gone 5-for-15 with a couple of extra-base hits in his last four games. He's hit sixth seven times and second twice so far. Obviously, the second spot would be better for his fantasy value, but he needs to outproduce Steve Pearce in order to reclaim his old place. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:33 pm
  • Kennedy (hamstring) throws bullpen session
    Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw a bullpen session Wednesday.

    Advice: Kennedy hit the disabled list after suffering a hamstring strain in his 2015 debut. He'll throw another bullpen session Friday, after which he will go on a rehab assignment. It sounds as though he won't miss much more than the minimum, a good sign for Kennedy owners. Rotoworld.com

  • Adam Duvall putting on a clinic in Triple-A
    Giants prospect Adam Duvall has dominated the Pacific League this season, hitting .478 through his first six games.

    Advice: It's more of the same for Duvall, who hit .298 with 27 HR and 90 RBI for Triple-A Fresno last season. He's ready to play in the big leagues but Brandon Belt is blocking his path at first base. Through frustrating, having Duvall see everyday at bats in Triple-A is better than having him waste away on San Francisco's bench. Rotoworld.com

  • Iwakuma takes a no-decision over five innings
    Hisashi Iwakuma allowed four runs in five innings, taking a no-decision in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Iwakuma's mediocre start to the 2015 season continues, as he had given up five runs in six innings to the Angels previously. The right-hander yielded six hits and walked three while striking out five against the Dodgers. Andre Ethier and Alex Guerrero both homered off of him. Iwakuma will try to turn things around in his next start at home against the Astros. Rotoworld.com

  • Dickerson triples, scores three runs in a win
    Corey Dickerson went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a triple, and three runs scored as the Rockies earned a 4-1 win over the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dickerson brought in the Rockies' first run with a single in the second inning and later scored on a wild pitch. He singled and scored in the fourth, then led off the ninth inning with a triple and later came around to score an insurance run. Dickerson has been hitting quite well, having hit safely in seven of eight games with a .406 average, six extra-base hits, nine RBI, and eight runs scored in 34 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Upton homers as Padres take down the D'Backs
    Justin Upton walked and hit a solo home run in four plate appearances as the Padres defeated the Diamondbacks 5-1 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Upton added some more insurance with his solo home run off of Jeremy Hellickson in the fifth inning, pushing the Padres' lead to 4-1 at the time. The slugger has hit safely in all nine games to start the season and is now batting .303 with two home runs and six RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Despaigne stymies D'Backs as Padres win
    Odrisamer Despaigne stymied the Diamondbacks over seven innings, allowing only one run, in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: Despaigne is filling in for the injured Ian Kennedy and pitched admirably, limiting the D'Backs to two hits and two walks while striking out three. Mark Trumbo knocked in the only run with a fourth-inning double. Despaigne should be ignored for fantasy purposes as his next start will come against the Rockies at Coors Field. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:43 pm
  • DeSclafani tosses seven scoreless in victory
    Anthony DeSclafani threw seven shutout innings, allowing just two hits, as the Reds edged the Cubs 3-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: DeSclafani walked two to go with his two hits allowed, striking out five in the win. He's now turned in two good starts to begin the year, owning a 1.38 ERA and 0.77 WHIP through 13 innings. The win was his first of the season, and he'll look to add another Monday at the Brewers.

    Tuesday, 8:23 pm
  • Graveman rebounds with 5 1/3 shutout innings
    Kendall Graveman shut out the Astros over 5 1/3 innings to earn his first win of the season on Tuesday.

    Advice: Graveman had a disastrous season debut on Thursday, serving up eight runs to the Rangers. He was much better this time around, limiting the Astros to four hits and four walks while striking out three. Graveman doesn't miss bats often, which limits his mixed league appeal. He is slated for a date with the Angels in L.A. next. Rotoworld.com

  • Vogt (ankle) in A's lineup on Tuesday night
    Stephen Vogt (ankle) is in the Athletics' starting lineup on Tuesday night versus the Astros.

    Tuesday, 1:50 pm
  • Alonso homers in a losing effort vs. D'Backs
    Yonder Alonso homered in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Alonso went 1-for-4 on the evening and his second-inning solo home run off of Rubby De La Rosa barely made a dent as the D'Backs were leading 4-0 at the time. Alonso has cooled off since back-to-back three-hit games in games two and three of the regular season, but is still batting a cool .360 (9-for-25). Rotoworld.com

  • Shoemaker notches quality start in win vs TEX
    Matt Shoemaker improved to 2-0, allowing three runs in 6 1/3 innings, as the Angels went on to a 6-3 win versus the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: The Rangers got to Shoemaker early, scoring three runs in the first inning, but then the right-hander settled down. On the evening, Shoemaker yielded six hits and a walk while striking out seven. He'll look to improve to 3-0 in his next start against the Astros in Houston. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Vogt tweaks ankle Monday
    Stephen Vogt turned his left ankle during Monday's game.

    Advice: He finished the game but was noticeably hobbled. It doesn't sound like a huge deal, but Vogt will be re-evaluated on Tuesday and could wind up missing a game or two. For what it's worth, Vogt says he'll be fine. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:27 pm
  • Semien hits one of Athletics' three homers
    Marcus Semien singled and hit a solo home run in four trips to the plate in Monday's 8-1 victory versus the Astros.

    Advice: Semien pushed the Athletics' lead to 5-1 at the time with a fifth-inning solo homer off of Scott Feldman, one of the Athletics' three home runs on Monday night. The young shortstop is batting .323 (10-for-31) to start the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Asher Wojciechowski optioned to Triple-A
    Astros optioned RHP Asher Wojciechowski to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Wojciechowski had been scheduled to start Tuesday, but he was needed out of the bullpen Monday.

  • Ian Kennedy (hamstring) nearing mound work
    Ian Kennedy (hamstring) is 2-3 days away from throwing a bullpen session.

    Advice: Padres manager Bud Black noted that Kennedy will likely need a rehab assignment before being activated, but it will probably be just one start. The veteran right-hander has a shot to be activated when first eligible later this month. Rotoworld.com

  • Addison Russell bashes first Triple-A homer
    Cubs prospect Addison Russell connected on a two-run homer Sunday in a win over Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: The third-inning blast was Russell's first Triple-A home run. He went 3-for-5 on the afternoon, bumping his season average up to a robust .389. Russell's path to the major leagues is currently being blocked by Starlin Castro, but if Russell keeps this up, the Cubs will have to find a spot for him. For what it's worth, Russell is considered a better defensive player than Castro. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Kemp goes 4-for-5 against Giants
    Matt Kemp went 4-for-5 with a two doubles versus the Giants on Saturday.

    Advice: Kemp is still looking for his first homer for the Padres, but he's off to a nice start otherwise, with a .346/.393/.462 line and four RBI in six games. Thus far, Justin Upton and Will Middlebrooks are tied for the Padres team lead with one homer. Rotoworld.com

  • Arenado smacks two-run home run against Cubs
    Nolan Arenado hit a two-run homer in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Arenado hit the tater off Jason Hammel in the second inning. It was his second home run on the early season and bodes well for the youngster, who finished the game 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI. He's off to a 9-for-20 start in 2015. Still just 24 years old, Arenado could be in for a big season. Last year, he hit 18 home runs and collected 61 RBI in just 111 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Vogt not in A's lineup on Saturday
    Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: As it's an afternoon game after a night game, manager Bob Melvin thought it wise to get his backstop a day of rest. Josh Phegley will start behind the dish and bat seventh for the A's against J.A. Happ and the Mariners. Rotoworld.com
