  • Phils outright O'Sullivan to Triple-A
    Phillies sent RHP Sean O'Sullivan outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: O'Sullivan got the boot after he threw 123 pitches in 5 1/3 innings while allowing seven runs (six earned) Monday against the Dodgers. The 27-year-old has posted an ugly 6.08 ERA across 13 starts this season. Only Rick Porcello, Kyle Lohse, and Jerome Williams have a higher ERA among pitchers with at least 70 innings pitched.

  • Garcia struggles in a spot start vs. Phillies
    Yimi Garcia, making his first major league start, gave up two runs in two innings but got a no-decision as the Dodgers eventually overcame the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: Garcia allowed a two-run home run to Freddy Galvis in the second inning, accounting for the damage. It was one of four hits he allowed while walking none and striking out two. The Dodgers were hurting for rotation help, but Garcia will likely head back to the bullpen after this. Rotoworld.com

  • O'Sullivan hammered in a loss to the Dodgers
    Sean O'Sullivan threw a career-high 123 pitches in 5 1/3 innings, yielding seven runs (six earned) but got a no-decision as the Phillies lost to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: The Phillies backed him up with plenty of run support, but it went for naught. Yasmani Grandal struck the big blow, swatting a three-run home run to tie the game at 6-6 in the fifth inning. Overall, he relented eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. O'Sullivan has an unsightly 6.08 ERA with a 1.61 WHIP and a 35/20 K/BB ratio over 71 innings. He'll close out the first half with a start in San Francisco against the Giants. Rotoworld.com

  • Rollins has a productive game vs. former team
    Jimmy Rollins knocked in the game-winning hit against his former team, going 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a pair of runs scored in Monday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: With the game knotted at 7-7 in the seventh inning, Rollins drove a two-run single to left-center. He later scored on Joc Pederson's double. The veteran shortstop has not been productive in his first year with the Dodgers, batting .212/.266/.324 with seven home runs and 26 RBI. Even his speed has waned, as he's been successful in only six of 13 stolen base attempts. Rotoworld.com

  • Grandal hits three-run home run to beat Phils
    Yasmani Grandal clubbed a three-run home run and walked in five plate appearances, helping the Dodgers outslug the Phillies in Monday's win.

    Advice: Grandal, named to the 2015 National League All-Star roster on Monday, hit a game-tying three-run home run to right-center in the fifth inning against Sean O'Sullivan. The backstop has homered three times and knocked in eight runs in his last six games. As a result, he is now hitting .271/.384/.507 with 13 home runs and 34 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:32 pm
  • Gonzalez homers as Dodgers top the Phillies
    Adrian Gonzalez homered and walked in five plate appearances on Monday as the Dodgers topped the Phillies.

    Advice: Gonzalez made it a 2-0 game with a solo home run off of Sean O'Sullivan in the first inning. It's his third home run in five July games, giving him 16 on the season with 51 RBI and a .291/.368/.526 batting line. It was announced on Monday that Gonzalez made the National League's 2015 All-Star Game roster as a reserve. Rotoworld.com

  • Kendrick's 4 hits help Dodgers outlast Phils
    Howie Kendrick went 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, an RBI, and two runs scored as the Dodgers outlasted the Phillies for a win on Monday.

    Advice: It's his third four-hit game in his last 10 games. He tripled in the first inning and scored the Dodgers' first run, then led off the fifth inning and came around to score on Yasmani Grandal's three-run home run. He added an RBI single in the sixth, finishing a home run short of the cycle. Kendrick is hitting .300/.349/.432 with seven home runs, 37 RBI, and 40 runs scored on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Iwakuma struggles in his return to the mound
    Hisashi Iwakuma, making his first start since April 20, yielded five runs in five innings in Monday's 12-5 loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: The first four runs each came as a result of a solo home run, hit by Nick Castellanos, Victor Martinez, J.D. Martinez, and Yoenis Cespedes. Iwakuma allowed a single after the Cespedes home run in the sixth inning before departing. All told, he gave up eight hits, walked none, and struck out three. He now has a 7.17 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and a 14/3 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings across four starts. Iwakuma will try to stabilize in his final start before the All-Star break, at home against the Angels.

    Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Cespedes homers as Tigers top Mariners
    Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-5 with a solo home run as the Tigers topped the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Cespedes drilled a solo home run to left-center off of Hisashi Iwakuma in what turned out to be a five-run sixth inning. The outfielder was unveiled as a finalist on the American League side of the Final Vote for the All-Star Game. He's batting .294/.322/.488 with 11 home runs and 45 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Simon struggles, but lucks out with a win
    Alfredo Simon continued to struggle but lucked out with a win on Monday, allowing five runs in 5 2/3 innings against the Mariners,

    Advice: Simon allowed two runs on a run-scoring triple and a run-scoring double, hit consecutively in the fourth inning. He then served up a three-run home run to Logan Morrison in the fifth. Overall, he surrendered eight hits and three walks while striking out four. Simon has been abysmal over his last four starts, sporting a 10.18 ERA. On the season, the right-hander has a 4.18 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and a 74/33 K/BB ratio in 97 innings. He matches up with the Twins in Minnesota next. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:36 pm
  • Castellanos has big 4 hit, 4 RBI game vs. SEA
    Nick Castellanos went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and four runs batted in to help the Tigers pound out a win against the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Every Tiger, with the exception of Ian Kinsler, was hitting Mariner pitching on Monday as the club pounded out 19 hits. Castellanos started the scoring in the second with a solo home run, added a two-run single in a five-run sixth inning, and tacked on an RBI single in a four-run seventh. The third baseman is on a seven-game hitting streak, now batting .245/.289/.365 with five home runs and 34 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:27 pm
  • Niese blanks Giants over 8 innings in a win
    Jon Niese kept the Giants off the board over eight innings, earning his fourth win of the season on Monday.

    Advice: Niese limited the Giants to five base runners (three hits and two walks) while striking out four. The lefty hit the kids in May but has racked up quality starts in each of his last six starts. As a result, his ERA is down to 3.58 with a 1.42 WHIP and a 67/33 K/BB ratio in 98 innings. The Mets, who have been attempting to trade him, couldn't be happier. Niese will take on the Diamondbacks at home in his final first half start. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • Monell's 2-run double sends Mets over Giants
    Johnny Monell hit a two-run double in the ninth inning to help the Mets hold off the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Neither the Mets nor the Giants seemed very interested in scoring runs after eight innings, but perhaps Monell just wanted to go home. Finishing 1-for-4, he doubled in a pair of runs off of Santiago Casilla to break a scoreless tie. He later came around to score on a Juan Lagares single. Monell had accrued an RBI in only one of his other 20 games this season, back on May 10 against the Phillies. He's batting an unimpressive .189/.250/.243 with four RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Soler doubles in two-hit effort but Cubs lose
    Jorge Soler went 2-for-3 with a double, but the Cubs lost Monday's game 6-0 to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Soler was the only Cub to register multiple hits, and he was also the only Cub to register an extra-base hit on the evening. He went 0-for-3 on Sunday, his first game back since being activated from the disabled list following an ankle injury. The 23-year-old is hitting .267/.322/.405 with four home runs and 19 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Lester gets 1st career hit, flirts with no-no
    Jon Lester brought a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but ultimately lost it and the game on Monday after giving up two unearned runs in seven innings against the Cardinals.

    Advice: The highlight of the game may have been Jon Lester ending a career-long 0-for-66 skid at the plate when he beat out an infield single in the second inning. He brought a no-hit bid into the seventh inning but lost it when Jhonny Peralta, fittingly, reached on an infield single. Kris Bryant later committed an error, which set up two unearned runs. Lester allowed two hits overall, walked two, and struck out eight on the evening. Lester has pitched quite well after a tough April, owning a 3.48 ERA on the year with a 1.28 WHIP and a 101/30 K/BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings. He wraps up his first half with a home start against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs expected to pursue Kendrick over winter
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Cubs are expected to target Howie Kendrick over the offseason.

    Advice: They'll have to free up the logjam on their infield first, which likely would involve trading Starling Castro. Rosenthal notes that the Dodgers could attempt to re-sign Kendrick, and the Yankees would be a possible landing spot, as well. Kendrick, who will turn 32 on Sunday, is batting .292/.342/.416 with seven homers and 36 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:11 pm
  • Adrian Gonzalez (hand) in lineup on Monday
    Adrian Gonzalez (hand) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Gonzalez had to exit Sunday's game after being hit on the right hand by a pitch, but he escaped with merely a bruise. The first baseman sports a .291/.366/.518 batting line with 15 homers and 50 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:19 pm
  • Yimi Garcia to start on Monday
    Yimi Garcia will start Monday's game versus the Phillies.

    Advice: Eric Surkamp had been expected to get the call, but he'll instead follow Garcia in what will be a bullpen game. Garcia hasn't started a game since 2011 in rookie ball. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:24 pm
  • Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) back from disabled list
    Mariners activated RHP Hisashi Iwakuma from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: The right-hander has been sidelined since late April due to a strained lat muscle. He also had a blister issue in his last rehab start, but manager Lloyd McClendon said that Iwakuma will not be under a strict pitch count Monday when he takes on the Tigers. Fantasy owners can probably feel free to go ahead and ride with him. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:54 pm
  • No restrictions to be placed on Iwakuma (lat)
    According to Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, there will be "no restrictions" on Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) when he returns to start against the Tigers on Monday.

    Advice: Iwakuma last started on April 20. While McClendon and the team are not placing any restrictions on Iwakuma, it's reasonable to assume that he'll be at least be relatively limited in the number of pitches he throws in his first few starts back. He sported a 6.61 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 11/3 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings and three starts prior to the DL stint. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:04 am
  • Gonzalez diagnosed with right hand contusion
    Adrian Gonzalez was diagnosed with a right hand contusion after being hit by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Mets.

    Advice: Gonzalez appears to have avoided any significant injuries after being drilled by Steven Matz on Sunday. He should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:03 pm
  • Adrian Gonzalez leaves after hit by pitch
    Adrian Gonzalez was removed from Sunday's contest against the Mets after being hit by a pitch on his hand.

    Advice: Gonzalez remained in the game until his next at-bat, where Alex Guerrero pinch-hit for him. He's likely headed for precautionary X-rays to rule out any structural damage and the Dodgers should have an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:31 pm
  • Yasmani Grandal sitting out on Sunday
    Yasmani Grandal is absent from the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. A.J. Ellis will catch while Grandal comes off the bench. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs activate Jorge Soler from disabled list
    Cubs activated OF Jorge Soler from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Soler went just 2-for-13 with four strikeouts during his four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Iowa, but his ankle is feeling fine and that's all the Cubs really care about. The youngster missed just over a month of action with a sprained left ankle. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez smacks solo homer to help lead win
    Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Gonzalez took Mets starter Matt Harvey deep for his 15th homer of the year in the fifth inning and with the RBI, Gonzalez has now batted in an even 50 for the season. His season-long triple-slash looks solid at .293/.367/.514, but it should be noted that after a molten hot April, he's posted progressively lower numbers each of the last two months. In June, he hit just .248/.320/.381. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:58 pm
  • Jorge Soler (ankle) to return Sunday
    The Cubs are expected to activate OF Jorge Soler (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday.

    Advice: Soler went 2-for-13 with four strikeouts during his four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Iowa. He'll immediately take over for Chris Denorfia in right field. The 23-year-old went on the DL last month with a sprained left ankle. Rotoworld.com

  • Iwakuma to rejoin Mariners rotation on Monday
    Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) will rejoin the Mariners rotation on Monday against the Tigers.

    Advice: The right-hander has been sidelined since April 21 due to a strained lat muscle. In three starts with the M's before hitting the disabled list, he registered a 6.61 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 11/3 K/BB ratio across 16 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:23 am
  • Iwakuma (lat) won't be back this weekend
    The Mariners will not activate Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) from the disabled list to start on Sunday.

    Advice: Mike Montgomery will stay on turn and take the ball Sunday. The Mariners have not made a decision on the next step for Iwakuma, but it's possible he'll make another rehab start. He could also rejoin Seattle's rotation early next week. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:53 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes hitting second on Friday
    Yoenis Cespedes is batting second for the Tigers on Friday.

    Advice: The Tigers finally moved Anthony Gose down in the order (to eighth) while moving up Ian Kinsler to the leadoff spot and Cespedes to the No. 2 hole. It's a nice little boost for Cespedes' fantasy value, as he has hit either fifth or sixth for most of the season. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:50 pm
  • Soler to play nine innings at Triple-A Friday
    Jorge Soler (ankle) is slated to play nine innings at Triple-A Iowa on Friday.

    Advice: If all goes well, it could be the final step before he's cleared to rejoin the Cubs. The young slugger has been on the shelf since early June with a left ankle sprain. Rotoworld.com

  • Iwakuma (lat) throws a successful bullpen
    Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) threw a successful bullpen session on Thursday without any issues.

    Advice: It's unclear if he's going to need one final minor league rehab start, or be cleared to rejoin the Mariners rotation immediately. M's manager Lloyd McClendon said he'll elaborate on the team's rotation plan on Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:05 pm
  • Jon Lester goes seven scoreless
    Jon Lester blanked the Mets for seven innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lester struck out seven and walked none in one of his best starts as a Cub. Granted, the Mets aren't really hitting anyone at the moment, but as difficult of a year as Lester has had, he'll take what he can get. Unfortunately, that didn't include a win, as the Cubs didn't take the lead until the 11th. Rotoworld.com

  • Simon clobbered by the Pirates in a loss
    Alfredo Simon was shelled in a loss to the Pirates on Wednesday, serving up six runs in 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Simon allowed 15 hits, the second time a pitcher has done that this season, joining Tim Hudson. Hudson and Simon are the only two starters to have accomplished the ignominious feat since the start of the 2012 season. Simon did refrain from issuing any walks and he struck out seven, so there's that. The right-hander has a 3.94 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, and a 70/30 K/BB ratio in 91 1/3 innings. He'll try for better results in a road start against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:39 pm
  • Grandal gets rest against D'backs Wednesday
    Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Grandal, a switch-hitter who hits significantly better from the left side, will sit this one out against southpaw Robbie Ray. A.J. Ellis will catch Brett Anderson for the Dodgers in Grandal's place. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:37 pm
  • A-Gonz out of Dodgers' lineup on Wednesday
    Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: With lefty Robbie Ray on the hill, Gonzalez and a few of the other left-handed hitting Dodgers are getting a rest. Scott Van Slyke started in his place at first base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:33 pm
  • Grandal plates four as Dodgers beat DBacks
    Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's 10-inning win against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Grandal opened the scoring with a two-run home run off of Rubby De La Rosa in the second inning. He added necessary insurance in the 10th inning with a two-run double to make it a 6-3 game. Grandal has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 12 on the season along with 31 RBI and a .269/.380/.497 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:52 pm
  • Kendrick homers in 10th as Dodgers defeat ARI
    Howie Kendrick homered in the 10th inning on Tuesday as the Dodgers took down the Diamondbacks.

He also had a four-hit game on Friday. The second baseman is on a six-game hitting streak, batting .298/.349/.429 with seven home runs and 34 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:49 pm
  • Iwakuma doesn't think blister is big issue
    Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) doesn't think the blister that forced him from his rehab start Tuesday will be an issue.

    Advice: Iwakuma noted that he's had numerous blister problems over the years and that the Mariners' training staff knows how to treat them. It remains to be seen whether the M's share his opinion, but either way this isn't a big setbacks. Iwakuma could rejoin Seattle's rotation as soon as Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Iwakuma (lat) exits rehab start with blister
    Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) had to leave Tuesday's rehab start with Triple-A Tacoma due to a blister on his pitching hand.

    Advice: He pitched well before exiting, allowing just one run on five hits and one walk while striking out six. Iwakuma's splitter has often given him blister issues, but it's unclear at this point if this is a notable setback. Tuesday's rehab start likely was going to be his last, although the Mariners hadn't confirmed as much. More should be known about Iwakuma on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:01 pm
  • Jon Niese on wrong end of low-scoring affair
    Jon Niese was on the wrong end of a low-scoring affair Tuesday, taking the loss despite allowing one run over seven innings against the Cubs.

    Advice: Niese allowed a lone run on four hits while also walking four on the evening. The lefty struck out five in the losing effort. It has become a bit of a pattern for Niese, who fell to 3-8 despite a decent 3.90 ERA. Niese still hasn't won since May 9, but he'll look to correct that Sunday at the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:38 pm
  • Soler (ankle) starts minor league rehab stint
    Jorge Soler (ankle) went 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: "He looked good," said Iowa manager Marty Pevey. "He made a great catch down the right-field line in the bullpen and he got his at-bats in, and we'll build on today's game." Assuming Soler feels good, he's expected to play seven to nine innings on Tuesday and get four at-bats. He's on track to join the Cubs this weekend. Soler has been sidelined for about a month with a left ankle sprain. Rotoworld.com

  • O'Sullivan beat up by the Brewers in a loss
    Sean O'Sullivan didn't have anything working in a loss to the Brewers on Monday, surrendering six runs on 12 hits in five innings.

    Advice: O'Sullivan limited the Brewers to only three runs through five innings, but things fell apart in the sixth inning when he allowed four straight hits before departing. Justin De Fratus came in and allowed two more hits before plugging the leaky ship. Along with the 12 hits, O'Sullivan walked one and struck out three. His ERA moves up to 5.76 with a 1.58 WHIP and a 33/18 K/BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings. Not that fantasy owners care, but he'll take the ball next in Atlanta to face the Braves this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:54 pm
  • Dodgers not in active discussions for Niese
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are "not in active discussions" with the Mets regarding Jon Niese.

    Advice: He adds that Niese is just "one of many pitchers" the Dodgers are considering. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has also reported that the Cubs -- another club connected to Niese -- had discussions about the lefty but are "not on him now." Niese may very well wind up being traded, but Heyman says his market is "less than robust at present." Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:33 pm
  • Soler to begin rehab assignment on Monday
    Jorge Soler (ankle) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Monday.

    Advice: Soler was finally cleared for game action after running the bases without any issues over the weekend. He's only expected to need a couple of games before he's ready to rejoin the Cubs, so expect to see him for their upcoming weekend series against the Marlins. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez provides 3 hits, RBI in a win
    Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI double in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

    Advice: Gonzalez added some insurance in a low-scoring affair, doubling in the seventh inning to make it a 2-0 ballgame. While no one realistically expected him to maintain a 1.000 OPS over the course of the season, his June swoon has caused his OPS to drop 137 points since the beginning of the month. He's still batting a very productive .297/.371/.518 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 1:16 pm
  • Rosenthal: Dodgers showing interest in Niese
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are interested in Jon Niese.

    Advice: It was Rosenthal who previously reported that the Cubs had interest in the lefty, and it appears we can add another team to the list. Niese has been up-and-down in 2015, posting a 4.12 ERA and just 58 strikeouts over 83 innings, but he would figure to offer both the Dodgers and Cubs a more stable option for the back-end of their rotation. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 11:20 am
  • Rosenthal: Cubs have discussed Jon Niese
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Cubs "have discussed" Jon Niese.

    Advice: Rosenthal cautions, though, that the Cubs "would probably prefer someone better." Niese has been solid in June with a 3.46 ERA, but he's been inconsistent overall this season with a 4.12 ERA and just 58 strikeouts over 83 innings. Chicago is happy with their first four starters but would like to upgrade the No. 5 spot. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 8:49 am
  • Jorge Soler begins rehab assignment this week
    Jorge Soler (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment this week.

    Advice: The specifics of the assignment aren't known yet, but Soler was cleared for game action after running the bases this weekend with no issues. He shouldn't need too many games before being activated, so Soler figures to rejoin the Cubs prior to the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com
