  • Cano collects three RBI in win over Rockies
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cano had an RBI double in the first inning before singling in two more with the bases loaded in the eighth. It was another productive night for the 32-year-old, who now has 12 RBI in his last nine games. After a sluggish first half, Cano is now batting .264/.309/.413 with 48 RBI and 51 runs scored on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:53 pm
  • Semien clubs three-run homer as A's top O's
    Marcus Semien went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Semien broke the game open in the sixth inning, hitting his three-run shot to left-center off of reliever Chaz Roe to send the Athletics' lead to 5-0. It's his second home run in four games, but he's been mediocre offensively overall, batting .245/.292/.382 with 10 home runs and 26 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm

    Advice: Cabrera hit one of the Rays' four homers on the night, taking reliever Daniel Webb deep in the seventh inning. It was his third consecutive two-hit game and extended his hitting streak to a modest eight games. Cabrera has raised his average 21 points in that span, and he's now hitting .241/.294/.390 with seven homers on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Duffy's four-hit game paces Giants in victory
    Matt Duffy went 4-for-5 with an RBI double, a run scored and a stolen base as the Giants topped the Braves 8-3 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Duffy had three singles to go with his RBI double, and the steal was his fifth of the year. The infielder hasn't had back-to-back hitless games since July 2-3, and Tuesday's outburst has his line up to .309/.346/.465. He'll have some stiff competition, but Duffy is square in the middle of the Rookie of the Year race in the National League. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:31 pm

  • Rollins logs two hits in his return to Philly
    Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-5 with a double in his first game back in Philadelphia, a Dodger loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Rollins went 5-for-15 with two doubles, a home run, and five RBI when the Phillies visited for four games at Chavez Ravine last month. In his first game back in Philadelphia since he was traded to the Dodgers during the winter, Rollins struck out in his first at-bat leading off the game, then doubled in the third inning and singled in the fifth. The veteran hasn't been the offensive force he was last year, batting a meager .219/.273/.362 with 11 home runs, 33 RBI, and eight stolen bases in 15 attempts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:09 pm
  • Escobar homers as Nats top the D'Backs
    Yunel Escobar went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run as the Nationals eked out a win against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

The veteran is having his best season since at least 2011, currently hitting .315/.362/.425 with seven home runs and 33 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Tejada has two hits, RBI in win over Marlins
    Ruben Tejada went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Tejada's RBI single in the sixth inning tied the score, and the Mets eventually won the game. The RBI was just his second since July 21 and 20th overall. The light-hitting shortstop is batting .255/.322/.341 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:45 pm
  • Castro contributes two RBI doubles in a win
    Starlin Castro went 2-for-5 with two RBI doubles as the Cubs shut out the Pirates 5-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Castro doubled in a run and later scored in the third inning, helping the Cubs take a 3-0 lead. He made it 4-0 in the fifth with another RBI double. Offensive contributions have been few and far between for the shortstop, who's hitting a paltry .238/.272/.307 with five home runs and 46 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:37 pm
  • Phillips has two hits, stolen base vs. Cards
    Brandon Phillips went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Phillips has come alive in recent days, as he's 10-for-21 in his last five games. He's also stolen four bases in that span, including swiping third base off Yadier Molina -- but mostly John Lackey -- in Tuesday's game. He's now got 15 stolen bases this season, the most since 2012. Phillips is hitting .282/.318/.374 with 50 runs scored on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:09 pm

    Advice: "He had a good day Sunday," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "Another good day [Monday] with the increase of physical activity. There's no reproducing of the concussion symptoms right now." Betts will travel with the Red Sox to Detroit this weekend, so it sounds like he could be activated later this week.

  • Correa's hot streak continues, homers in loss
    Carlos Correa homered for the fourth time in as many games, finishing 1-for-5 in a loss to the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Correa gave the Astros an early 2-0 lead with a first-inning home run off of Colby Lewis, but it was quickly forgotten when the opposition posted a six-spot in the bottom half. The shortstop has done nothing but hit since arriving in the major leagues, currently the proud owner of a .297/.344/.573 triple-slash line along with 13 home runs and 34 RBI in 209 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:50 pm
  • Gyorko logs 3 hits, including homer, in a win
    Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a solo home run as the Padres defeated the Brewers on Monday.

    Advice: Gyorko pushed the Padres' lead to 5-2 with an RBI single in the third inning, then whacked a solo home run off of Michael Blazek in the fifth to make it a 7-2 game. The mercurial infielder is batting .239/.301/.362 with six home runs and 23 RBI. His triple-slash line represents a modest improvement over last year's struggles. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:34 pm
  • Crawford homers twice, Giants lose in 12
    Brandon Crawford hit two home runs, but it wasn't enough as the Giants fell to the Braves in 12 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Crawford went back-to-back with Brandon Belt in the second inning, then added a two-run homer in the fourth inning to send the Giants' lead to 6-0. They accounted for both of his hits in five at-bats. The shortstop has put up terrific numbers this season, batting .266/.328/.492 with 18 home runs and 67 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:18 pm
  • Ahmed homers in 4-hit night as D'Backs win
    Nick Ahmed went 4-for-4 with a solo home run as the Diamondbacks beat the Nationals on Monday.

    Advice: Ahmed broke a scoreless tie in the top of the third inning with a solo home run off of Doug Fister. It was one of four Arizona homers on the evening. The shortstop hasn't exactly been an offensive dynamo, as Monday's performance still leaves him with a lackluster .232/.289/.348 batting line along with seven home runs and 26 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:47 pm
  • Kipnis (shoulder) expected to miss 2-3 weeks
    Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

    Advice: Kipnis tried to battle through a sore right shoulder for a few days, but the Indians finally placed him on the disabled list Monday. He doesn't have any structural damage, but it's an ailment that's bothered Kipnis off and on for a good chunk of the season. Mike Aviles is likely to receive the bulk of the playing time at second base while Kipnis is out. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:46 pm

  • Jason Kipnis (shoulder) placed on 15-day DL
    Indians placed 2B Jason Kipnis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 2, with right shoulder inflammation.

    Advice: Kipnis tried playing through the ailment for a few days, receiving starts in the designated hitter spot, but the club has decided it's best to go ahead and shut him down for a while. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Jose Ramirez has taken his spot on the roster and should see some time at second base along with Mike Aviles while Kipnis is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:32 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Robinson Cano playing 2B on Monday
    Robinson Cano is back at second base for the Mariners on Monday.

  • Joe Panik (back) to have tests Tuesday
    Joe Panik is headed back to San Francisco to undergo tests on his ailing back.

    Advice: An MRI and cat scan will be part of the battery of tests he goes through. Panik was placed on the disabled list Monday with what the Giants are simply calling lower back inflammation for now, but they should get a better read on his status Tuesday. A clearer picture on his timetable should be known then. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:34 pm

    Giants placed 2B Joe Panik on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation.

    Advice: Panik admitted after Sunday's game that he's been bothered by back stiffness for the past couple of weeks. Hopefully a bit of time off will do the trick for the 24-year-old, who's enjoying a breakout 2015 season. Ehire Adrianza and callup Kelby Tomlinson figure to share playing time at second base while Panik is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:27 pm

    Advice: One of the hits included his first home run as a member of the Dodgers organization. He also stole his 27th base and drove in a pair of runs. Peraza has gone 9-for-23 (.391) during his six-game hitting streak. The 21-year-old joined the Dodgers last week as part of a three-team swap with Atlanta and Miami. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:16 pm

  • Kipnis (shoulder) could land on disabled list
    The Indians are considering placing Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the disabled list.

    Advice: Kipnis is not playing Sunday after being limited to designated hitter duty of late because of soreness in his right shoulder. The results of an MRI he had Sunday haven't been revealed, but it's evidently bad enough that the club thinks the second baseman could need at least a couple weeks off. Manager Terry Francona said he would talk things over with the medical staff and general manager Chris Antonetti before a decision is made. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:08 am

  • Marcus Semien homers, walks against Indians
    Marcus Semien homered, walked and scored twice against the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Semien has more errors (29) than RBI (23) or walks (25) this year, yet he still has an OPS (.670) right at the league average for shortstops. It's about as weird of a bad season as one could dream up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:52 pm

  • Robinson Cano returns to M's lineup Saturday
    Robinson Cano (abdomen) returned to the Marniners starting lineup as the designated hitter on Saturday.

    Advice: Cano has been sidelined since Monday with a Grade 1 abdominal strain. He still isn't ready to man his position defensively, but can swing the bat without issue. He's hitting cleanup against Kyle Gibson and the Twins on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:56 pm
  • Troy Tulowitzki not in Jays lineup Saturday
    Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Blue Jays lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

    Advice: Manager John Gibbons simply wanted to give his new shortstop a day of rest. Munenori Kawasaki will start in his place and bat eighth against Yordano Ventura on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:57 am
  • Castro drives in two runs vs. Brewers
    Starlin Castro knocked in two runs against the Brewers on Friday.

    Advice: Castro had an RBI single in the second inning before hitting into a fielder's choice in the fourth inning to drive in another run. The 25-year-old was in the middle of trade discussions this week, but the Cubs are surely hoping he'll breathe a bit easier now that the deadline has passed. He owns a disappointing .237/.271/.304 batting line on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:16 pm
  • Crawford hits 16th home run in loss
    Brandon Crawford launched a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: It was his 16th home run of the season and his fourth in his last nine games. The 28-year-old has been a surprising force at the shortstop position this season, batting .268/.331/.481 across 99 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:51 pm
  • Escobar has RBI single in loss to Mets
    Yunel Escobar drove in the Nationals' only run of the night Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: His eighth-inning single off Matt Harvey tied the game, but the Mets eventually won in extras. Escobar went 1-for-5 on the night and has a .312/.360/.410 batting line on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:02 pm
  • Tulo has two hits, two runs scored in win
    Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-6 with two runs scored in Friday's extra-inning win over the Royals.

    Advice: Tulowitzki singled with one out in the 11th inning and eventually came around to score the winning run on Josh Donaldson's walk-off single. With Devon Travis (shoulder) back on the disabled list, the slugging shortstop appears likely to stick in the leadoff spot for Toronto. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:42 pm
  • Gyorko plates three as Padres outlast Marlins
    Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-4 and drove home three runs on Friday as the Padres topped the Marlins 8-3 in 11 innings.

    Advice: Gyorko tied the game at 2-2 with an RBI single in the fourth inning and delivered a two-run single as part of a five-run uprising in the 11th. While he has picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks, he is still hitting just .233/.296/.350 with 21 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:31 pm
  • Dodgers place Justin Turner on 15-day DL

  • Phillips fills it up: 2 HR, 7 RBI, 2 SB
    Brandon Phillips went 4-for-5 with two homers, seven RBI and two steals as the Reds smoked the Pirates 15-5 on Thursday.

    Advice: That's about as good of a game for fantasy purposes as you'll see. According to Baseball-Reference's Play Index, he's the first player since Ryan Spilborghs in 2009 with two homers and two steals in a game. He's just the third since at least 1914 with seven RBI and two steals, joining Mickey Mantle in 1962 and Gary Sheffield in 1995. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:09 pm
  • Dodgers acquire Jose Peraza in huge trade
    Dodgers acquired UTIL Jose Peraza from the Braves in the 13-player, three-team Hector Olivera trade.

    Advice: Peraza entered the 2015 season as a consensus top-100 prospect, but some of that shine has worn off. As of Thursday's official trade announcement, he was batting just .294/.318/.379 in 96 games at Triple-A Gwinnett. The 21-year-old has played second base, shortstop, and center field in the minor leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:24 pm

  • Cubs aggressively trying to move SS Castro
    ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Cubs are "aggressively trying to include Starlin Castro in any deal."

    Advice: It's notable that Addison Russell started at shortstop on Wednesday. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said earlier this week that Castro would not be traded, but that's not a promise he can keep. The 25-year-old is batting just .237/.271/.305 in 406 plate appearances this season and his defense at shortstop has deteriorated. There's been talk of interest from the Padres. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:32 am
  • Tulowitzki homers, knocks in 3 in TOR debut
    Troy Tulowitzki made his Blue Jays debut and went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in a win against the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: What a way to make a debut. He struck out in his first at-bat with his new club, but made up for it with a two-run home run in the third inning. He added an RBI double in the sixth. Tulowitzki now has 13 home runs on the year with 56 RBI along with a .305 average. The Rogers Center is friendly to right-handed hitters, so the move away from Coors Field may not hurt his numbers all that much. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:54 pm
  • Jose Peraza would be included in Dodgers deal
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Jose Peraza would head to the Dodgers in the rumored three-team deal with the Marlins.

    Advice: As it currently stands, the Dodgers would receive Peraza, Alex Wood and Jim Johnson from the Braves plus Mat Latos and Michael Morse from the Marlins. The Braves would receive Hector Olivera, Zach Bird and a compensation pick, while the Marlins would acquire three low-level minor league pitchers. There are still hurdles to clear, so don't expect anything to be finalized until Thursday at the earliest. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:54 pm

    Advice: Betts was injured when he fell over the short bullpen wall at Fenway Park while trying to make a catch during Tuesday's game. As is the case with most any concussion, how long he'll be sidelined is totally up in the air at this point. Jackie Bradley will handle center field while Betts is out.

  • Asdrubal Cabrera homers in Rays' loss
    Asdrubal Cabrera belted a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Cabrera's solo shot in the fifth inning represented the lone run for the Rays. He also gave it back and then some, as a crucial error by the shortstop in the seventh led to the Tigers' only two runs. Cabrera is batting just .231/.281/.373 for Tampa this season.

  • 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 Wednesday, 11:30 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 Wednesday, 10:11 am
  • Starlin Castro not in lineup on Wednesday
    Starlin Castro is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a day off for the struggling Castro. Addison Russell has slid over to handle shortstop, while Jonathan Herrera is getting a start at second base. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:15 am
  • Joe Panik (back) to sit out again Wednesday
    Joe Panik will miss a second straight game Wednesday due to back tightness.

    Advice: Panik noted that it wasn't one play that caused the injury, but rather it's just "one of those things" you have to deal with during a long season. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:24 am

  • Correa homers, has three hits against Angels
    Carlos Correa went 3-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: The homer, a solo shot in the first inning, was Correa's ninth in 42 games this season. The 20-year-old has hits in 11 of his past 12 games as he settles in at the major league level. Correa is batting .299/.350/.545 with 28 RBI, 25 runs scored and five steals to go with his nine homers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:34 pm
  • Mookie Betts expected to go on concussion DL
    Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports that Mookie Betts will likely be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Betts is showing concussion symptoms after tumbling over the short bullpen wall at Fenway Park while trying to make a catch during Tuesday's game. It's unclear at this point how much time he might miss, but it makes no sense for the Red Sox to push him. Jackie Bradley Jr. is expected to be called up to take Betts' spot on the roster and in center field. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:16 pm

  • Kipnis has 3 hits, wasted in loss to Royals
    Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with a double, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's contest to the Royals.

    Advice: Kipnis couldn't be brought around to score as the Indians' 2-5 hitters combined to go 2-for-14. The Indians have dropped six games in a row, averaging 1.7 runs per game. But it's not the fault of Kipnis, who has an outstanding .330/.405/.485 triple-slash line on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:40 pm
    15-Day DL
     
  • Mookie Betts showing concussion symptoms
    Mookie Betts is displaying symptoms consistent with a concussion.

    Advice: He will undergo further testing, but you'd have to think there's a good chance the Red Sox will play it safe and go ahead and put him on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Betts suffered the injury Tuesday when he tumbled over the short bullpen wall at Fenway Park while trying to make a catch. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:27 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera activated from DL

  • Betts being evaluated for possible concussion
    Mookie Betts is being evaluated for a possible concussion after leaving Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

    Advice: Betts made a catch on Jose Abreu's deep drive to right-center field but then fell over the bullpen wall and landed on his neck/head area. He seemed fine initially but was then removed. The play was eventually ruled a home run after replay. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:57 pm

  • Justin Turner has infection on leg
    Justin Turner is not playing Tuesday due to a pimple on his leg that became infected, necessitating a visit to the emergency room after he had a reaction to medication.

    Advice: Well, that's... appetizing. The Dodgers expect to know more on Turner later Tuesday, but he should be available to play Wednesday. Alberto Callaspo is at the hot corner Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:21 pm

  • Blue Jays officially acquire Troy Tulowitzki
    Blue Jays acquired SS Troy Tulowitzki and RHP LaTroy Hawkins from the Rockies for SS Jose Reyes and RHPs Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco.

    Advice: While many expected the Blue Jays to make a big splash for their pitcher, they stunned the baseball world late Monday night by upgrading what was already the best offense in the majors. Tulowitzki has managed to stay mostly healthy this season while batting .300/.348/.471 with 12 home runs and 53 RBI over 87 games. His injury history is a concern, especially on the turf at Rogers Centre, but the 30-year-old could age better in the American League because of the ability to DH. Tulowitzki will receive a $2 million assignment bonus for being traded and his contract now includes a full no-trade clause. He's owed $94 million from 2016-2020 with a $15 million club option or $4 million buyout in 2021. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:06 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
  • Crawford homers as Giants top the Brewers
    Brandon Crawford homered and walked in a 1-for-2 effort on Monday as the Giants defeated the Brewers.

    Advice: Crawford delivered a two-run home run off of Kyle Lohse in the third inning, pushing the Giants' lead to 3-0. He's on a six-game hitting streak, currently standing with a .270/.336/.481 batting line along with 15 home runs and 61 RBI. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:56 pm
  • Troy Tulowitzki traded to Jays for Jose Reyes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins have been traded to the Blue Jays for Jose Reyes and minor leaguers.

    Advice: Well, how about that for a late-night surprise? Offense certainly wasn't a need for Toronto given that they are leading baseball in runs by a wide margin, but they obviously saw an opportunity to make a strength even stronger. They're also improving their defense with the deal, as Reyes' defense has really gone south. Tulo is under contract through 2020 with a club option for 2021. Reyes might be flipped elsewhere, as dealing Tulo but then taking on Reyes' contract wouldn't mesh with the Rockies' rebuild. Colorado is reportedly set to receive Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and one other minor leaguer in the deal. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:32 pm
  • Cabrera (hamstring) to be activated Tuesday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.

    Advice: Cabrera played in his first rehab game with High-A Charlotte on Monday and evidently that's all he needed. The veteran shortstop will have missed just one day more than the minimum with a strained right hamstring. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:43 pm
  • Joaquin Arias designated for assignment
    Giants designated INF Joaquin Arias for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears space on the roster for the return of Nori Aoki. Arias has been with the Giants since 2012 but was hitting just .207/.207/.276 this season. He'll clear waivers given his $1.45 million salary and should remain in the organization. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:29 pm

  • Pads have discussed Starlin Castro with Cubs
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Padres have discussed Starlin Castro with the Cubs.

    Advice: Morosi adds that the Cubs have inquired on the Padres' starters and he opines that a Castro-for-James Shields swap might make some sense. Castro has been a colossal disappointment with the Cubs this season, hitting just .233/.268/.302 with five homers. He's under contract through 2019 and the Cubs would probably love to use him as a trade chip this week to get pitching help. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:33 pm
  • Pads shopping second baseman Jedd Gyorko
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Padres are shopping Jedd Gyorko "hard."

    Advice: Gyorko is batting just .212/.279/.333 in 652 plate appearances since the beginning of the 2014 season. That's right around the time he signed a five-year, $35 million contract extension with the Padres coming off a 2013 campaign in which he tallied 23 home runs and 63 RBI. The 26-year-old second baseman probably isn't going to draw much interest on his own, but maybe the Friars can throw him into a package with one of their more attractive trade chips. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:05 am
  • Asdrubal (hamstring) ready for rehab games
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is set to begin a rehab assignment Monday night with High-A Port Charlotte.

    Advice: Cabrera, who's been out since July 12 with a strained right hamstring, will play between five and seven innings in his first rehab game. The expectation is that his rehab assignment will be a short one. "He's a veteran guy, so he gives us as good a sense as anybody as to when he thinks he's ready," manager Kevin Cash said Sunday. "But I know he's itching to get back." Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:00 am
  • Kipnis (neck) goes 0-for-4 in return Sat.
    Jason Kipnis (neck) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Sunday in his return to the Indians' lineup.

    Advice: Kipnis was held out of action on Saturday due to some mild stiffness in his neck. It obviously isn't a big deal. The second baseman is slashing .321/.397/.476 in what has otherwise been a frustrating year for Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:54 am
    15-Day DL
