  • Yan Gomes to catch on Saturday and Sunday
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Friday that Yan Gomes will catch on Saturday and Sunday.

    Advice: It will be the first time this season that the backstop has caught consecutive games as he has been eased back into action in his return from the disabled list. The 27-year-old is struggling at the dish, hitting just .133/.156/.167 with one RBI and a 9/1 K/BB ratio in his first eight games. Rotoworld.com

  • Derek Norris delivers walkoff grand slam
    Derek Norris delivered a walkoff grand slam as the Padres beat the Pirates 6-2 on Friday.

    Advice: Rob Scahill walked the first batter he faced in a 2-2 game, then threw the ball away handling a sac bunt, putting runners on second and third. An intentional walk followed to lead the bases. Scahill almost escaped from there, getting grounders from Alexi Amarista and Yangervis Solarte that both resulted in outs at home. However, Norris ended it with a big blast. It was just his fourth homer, but he has 32 RBI already. Rotoworld.com

  • Buster Posey homers, doubles
    Buster Posey drove in three runs with a homer and a double as the Giants topped the Braves 4-2 on Friday.

    Advice: Following a quiet April, Posey has hit .333 with five homers, 17 RBI and 17 runs scored in May. He's also on pace to walk more than he's struck out for the first time in his career (17/20 K/BB). Rotoworld.com

  • Brian McCann homers in fourth straight
    Brian McCann homered in a fourth straight start Friday against the Athletics.

    Advice: The incredible thing is that the last two homers have come in road games in Oakland. Prior to Thursday, 25 of his 29 homers as a Yankee had come in the Bronx. Rotoworld.com

  • Soto has go-ahead double vs. Astros
    Geovany Soto had a go-ahead two-run double as the White Sox topped the Astros 6-3 in 11 innings on Friday.

    Advice: Soto entered the game after Jose Abreu exited in the eighth inning with a swollen finger and went on to have the big hit in extras. After making the White Sox out of spring training on a minor league deal, the 32-year-old backstop is batting .203/.250/.344 with two home runs and nine RBI in a part-time role this season.

  • Ramos has two hits in loss to Reds

    Advice: Ramos came into Friday's action with just one hit (a home run) in 21 at-bats over his last six games. That was after hitting safely in 19 out of 20 games. Fantasy owners will have to hope that this is the start of another hot streak. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Lavarnway elects to become free agent
    Ryan Lavarnway has elected free agency.

    Advice: He was designated for assignment earlier in the week to make room on the active roster for Steve Clevenger. With so many teams around the league starved for depth behind the plate, he should be able to find a suitable opportunity elsewhere. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis d'Arnaud nursing bone bruise in wrist
    Travis d'Arnaud's (finger) return from the disabled list will be delayed due to a bone bruise in his wrist.

    Advice: It's not clear at this point how he suffered the injury or how long it will set him back. D'Arnaud had been slated for activation from the disabled list next week. He's been on the shelf since April 20 with a fractured right pinkie finger. Rotoworld.com

  • Tuffy Gosewisch likely has ACL tear
    Tuffy Gosewisch revealed Friday that he likely has an ACL tear in his left knee.

    Advice: It sounds like he'll receive at least one more opinion before making a decision on surgery, but it appears his season is likely over. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has taken Gosewisch's spot on the roster and should serve as the Diamondbacks' starting catcher indefinitely. Rotoworld.com

  • Wieters (elbow) on track for June 5 return
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Matt Wieters (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list on June 5.

    Advice: He's eligible to be activated on June 4, but it appears the O's will have Wieters join them in Cleveland rather than a day earlier in Houston. Showalter added that the catcher will have no physical restrictions when he returns, so it sounds like fantasy owners can count on him being in the lineup regularly. Rotoworld.com

  • Oscar Hernandez moved to 60-day DL
    Diamondbacks transferred C Oscar Hernandez from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Hernandez is out with a broken left hamate bone and a timetable for his return isn't known. Rotoworld.com

  • Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) placed on DL
    Diamondbacks placed C Tuffy Gosewisch on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 28, with a left ACL injury.

    Advice: Gosewisch injured the knee while trying to beat out an infield single on Wednesday. It's not clear at this point if the ligament will require surgery, but if it does it would obviously knock Gosewisch out for the season. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has taken his spot on the roster.

  • Diamondbacks call up Jarrod Saltalamacchia
    Diamondbacks purchased the contract of C Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Saltalamacchia hit two homers in nine games for Reno but batted just .188/.222/.375 overall. However, with Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) going on the disabled list the Snakes needed another body behind the plate. Salty should get the bulk of the starts while Gosewisch is out and his power makes him worth an add in two-catcher leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Iannetta smacks grand slam as LAA punks DET
    Chris Iannetta went 2-for-4 with a double and a grand slam on Thursday in a 12-2 stomping of the Tigers.

    Advice: With the game already out of hand, Detroit stretched Tom Gorzelanny beyond his LOOGY capabilities and his ERA will suffer for it for some time. Not that Iannetta much cares. His slash line was a hideous .123/.217/.137 as recently as 11 days ago, but Carlos Perez's emergence has jolted him awake. Iannetta has 12 RBI in his past 10 games and three homers and three doubles across his last eight. Rotoworld.com

  • Lucroy (toe) goes 1-for-3 in first rehab game

  • D'Backs to recall Saltalamacchia on Friday
    Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that the Diamondbacks will recall Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Advice: With Tuffy Gosewish dealing with an injury, recalling the veteran backstop seemed the logical conclusions for the Diamondbacks to make. Fantasy owners expecting him to make an impact should note his uninspiring .188/.222/.375 line with two homers, seven RBI and a 13/2 K/BB ratio in nine games at Triple-A Reno. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Santana placed on paternity leave list

  • C Perez collects a pair of hits and two RBI
    Carlos Perez finished 2-for-4 with a double and a pair of RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Perez has taken advantage of Chris Iannetta's season-long Mr. Magoo impersonation at the plate to steal most of the catching at-bats. He's playing just well enough to continue to garner those plate appearances, posting a head-above-water .279/.289/.395 slash line. Perez is not yet drawing walks, but perhaps more will come as he continues to get more comfortable in the batter's box. Rotoworld.com

  • Gosewisch to have MRI on left knee Thursday
    Tuffy Gosewisch will have an MRI taken of his left knee Thursday.

    Advice: Gosewisch left Wednesday's game with a jammed left knee, and the Diamondbacks want to know the extent of the injury before developing a gameplan. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said the club could make a decision about a possible disabled list stint by Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Gosewisch dealing with jammed left knee
    Tuffy Gosewisch left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with a jammed left knee.

    Advice: Gosewisch likely jammed the knee stretching to touch first base while trying to beat out a throw in the sixth inning. A jammed knee doesn't sound terribly serious, but the Diamondbacks should give a clearer outlook for the backstop by Thursday. Jordan Pacheco will likely fill in at catcher if Gosewisch is forced to miss time. Rotoworld.com

    Wednesday, 1:04 pm
  • Jorge Alfaro homers for second straight game
    Rangers catching prospect Jorge Alfaro slammed his fourth home run of the year Tuesday in a win for Double-A Frisco.

    Advice: Alfaro also homered in Monday night's contest. He's hit .333 during his five-game hitting streak. The 21-year-old got off to a hot start (.328 average in April) but has cooled off considerably in the month of May (.233 in 86 at-bats). He's done a lot of his damage against left-handers, batting .429 with two homers in 21 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

Lucroy was batting just .133 with a .393 OPS in 12 games before the injury, but he can get it going in a hurry. Rotoworld.com

    Travis d’Arnaud (finger) caught five innings Tuesday in an extended spring training game.

    Advice: D'Arnaud, out since April 20 with a fractured right pinkie finger, also went 1-for-3 with a run scored and reached on a catcher's interference. The hope is that he'll be ready to join Triple-A Las Vegas for an official rehab assignment within the next few days. This would put him on pace to join the Mets at some point next week.
