  • Desmond Jennings (knee) is pain-free
    Desmond Jennings said Thursday that his surgically-repaired left knee is pain-free for the first time since late April.

    Advice: Jennings finally had arthroscopic surgery last month after he was unable to get over the hump with his knee ailment. He's hoping to return sometime in August. "It's a good feeling," Jennings said. "I'm anxious to start playing some baseball."

  • Loney (finger) activated from disabled list
    Rays activated 1B James Loney from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Loney progressed more quickly than expected in his recovery from a broken left middle finger and has been cleared to return after a few rehab games. He returns to a .275/.322/.376 batting line and should provide a much-needed boost for the Rays at first base.

  • Jason Rogers optioned to Triple-A
    Brewers optioned INF Jason Rogers to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Rogers got off to a nice start with the Brew Crew but hasn't had a hit in a couple weeks while playing sparingly. He returns to a .360/.429/.640 batting line at Colorado Springs.

  • Doug Bernier outrighted to Triple-A
    Twins sent INF Doug Bernier outright to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Bernier was already in the minors and now he's off the 40-man roster. He had one hit in five at-bats in a brief stay in the majors earlier this season.

  • Steve Tolleson outrighted to Triple-A
    Blue Jays sent INF Steve Tolleson outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: He cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain with the organization. Tolleson could get another shot with the big club at some point.

  • Dioner Navarro still wants to be traded
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Dioner Navarro "renewed his interest in a trade this week."

    Advice: Navarro requested a trade over the winter after the Blue Jays signed Russell Martin and he apparently still desires to be somewhere where he could catch more. He's been the Jays' backup catcher and occasional designated hitter but would probably represent an upgrade as a starting catcher for a handful of clubs.

  • Eric Hosmer reaches twice in return to lineup
    Eric Hosmer (finger) singled and drew a walk in four plate appearances in his return to the lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Hosmer had missed the last three games with a minor left ring finger sprain. He should be fine.
    Today, 5:51 am
  • Pollock has 2 hits, including HR, in win
    A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored in Thursday's 8-1 win versus the Rockies.

    Advice: Pollock hit his 10th homer of the year off Chris Rusin in the sixth inning. The outfielder has been an unsung fantasy stud so far this year. He's batting .301 and is on pace for 21 homers, 74 RBI, 107 runs and 33 steals. That type of production would threaten for a top-five fantasy outfielder finish.
    Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Tomas knocks in a pair vs. the Rockies
    Yasmany Tomas smacked a two-run double in Thursday's win against the Rockies.

    Advice: The seventh-inning drive off of Scott Oberg plated A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt and gave the Diamondbacks a 5-1 lead in the eventual 8-1 victory. The Tomas investment looked like an early flop, but he's slashing a tasty .318/.359/.441 through 220 at-bats. If the power comes and the average doesn't suffer because of it, he's going to be a fantasy star.
    Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Semien corks 7th HR in win vs. the Mariners
    Marcus Semien hit a solo homer in a 4-0 win versus Seattle on Thursday.

    Advice: Semien finished 1-for-3. His big contribution of the night was talking Roenis Elias deep in the fifth inning to give the A's a 3-0 cushion. Semien is slashing .259/.309/.402 and is on pace for 14 homers and 12 steals.

  • Phegley plates a pair in 4-0 win over Seattle
    Josh Phegley went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Phegley has been stellar in a part-time role for the A's, slashing .280/.333/.523 in 107 at-bats. He's also been an asset throwing out potential base robbers.
    Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Venable hits go-ahead homer in extras
    Will Venable slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in a 5-3 win over the Cardinals in 11 innings on Thursday.

    Advice: The Cardinals tied the game in the fifth inning, but both sides remained scoreless from there until Venable took Carlos Villanueva deep in extras. After a disappointing 2014 season, the 32-year-old is batting .263/.324/.421 with six homers and six steals over 66 games this season.
    Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Solarte ejected from Thursday's game
    Yangervis Solarte was ejected from Thursday's game in the sixth inning for arguing a check-swing call.

    Advice: Solarte went 1-for-3 with a solo homer before home plate umpire Bob Davidson gave him the boot. His solo shot in the second inning snapped a 22-inning scoreless streak for San Diego.
    Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Carpenter reaches base four times in loss
    Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, two walks, and two runs scored Thursday against the Padres.

    Advice: It was his first multi-hit game since June 18. Carpenter has seen his batting average fall 100 points from .378 to .278 since May 1.
    Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Santana has RBI triple in win
    Danny Santana went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple in Thursday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: His fifth-inning triple was the only run of the game until Eduardo Escobar drove in a run in the ninth for some insurance. Coming into Thursday's action, Santana had just two hits in 17 at-bats since returning from the minors. This was his first multi-hit game since way back on May 6.
    Yesterday, 8:37 pm
  • Rios hitless in loss to Twins
    Alex Rios went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Rios is batting just .188 since returning from the disabled list at the end of May. He has only two extra-base hits (both doubles) in that time.
    Yesterday, 8:36 pm
  • Pillar collects four hits in loss to Red Sox
    Kevin Pillar had a nice night at the plate in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox, going 4-for-5 with a double and a run scored.

    Advice: Pillar has made a name for himself in recent years with his tremendous defensive prowess in center field, but he has developed into an integral part of the Blue Jays offense this year. With the four-hit attack, he's now hitting .285/.348/.409 on the season.
    Yesterday, 7:56 pm
  • David Lough tallies two hits in loss to Texas
    David Lough was the lone bright spot on offense for the Orioles on Thursday, going 2-for-3 in a losing effort against the Rangers.

    Advice: The Orioles were shut out by Yovani Gallardo and company on Thursday, with Lough tallying two of the team's three total hits. He has struggled for the most part in limited time with the O's, slashing just .216/.262/.351 on the season.
    Yesterday, 7:27 pm
  • Jacoby Ellsbury will not rejoin Yanks Friday
    Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will not rejoin the Yankees on Friday as had been anticipated.

    Advice: Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that Ellsbury is still trying to get his legs in baseball shape. It seems likely that he'll continue on his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Tampa through the weekend before rejoining the Bombers next week.

  • Ender Inciarte to return after All-Star break
    Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list immediately after the All-Star break.

    Advice: He has been on the shelf since mid-June with a right hamstring strain. Inciarte had been expected to rejoin the club at some point next week, but they'll give him a few extra days just to be safe. The 24-year-old is hitting .287/.316/.371 with two homers, 21 RBI and nine stolen bases on the season.

  • Cardinals place Jon Jay (wrist) on 15-day DL
    Cardinals placed OF Jon Jay on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 1, with a left wrist stress reaction/bone bruise.

    Advice: Jay has been dealing with the wrist injury all season and hopes that a couple of weeks of rest will prove beneficial. He'll be eligible to return after the All-Star break.

  • Montero smashes two-run homer in ninth inning
    Miguel Montero went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Thursday afternoon's win over the Mets.

    Advice: The home run was Montero's 10th of the season. He's currently slashing .245/.352/.422. It will be interesting to see if the catcher can pass his career-best for homers, which stands at 18. He should finish in that vicinity, though a 20-homer season is not out of the question.
    Yesterday, 1:21 pm
  • A's designate Freiman for assignment
    Athletics designated 1B Nate Freiman for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-acquired Cody Martin on the 40-man roster. Freiman, 28, was batting just .171/.225/.188 over 35 games this season in Triple-A.

  • Sizemore's two RBI not enough for victory
    Grady Sizemore went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Facing off against his former team, Sizemore punched in runs with a pair of RBI singles in the first and sixth innings. He was released from the Phillies last month after hitting .245/.288/.296 with zero homers and six RBI in 104 plate appearances. Sizemore's picked up six hits since June 28 (when the Rays acquired him), but there's little reason to expect much fantasy juice here.
    Yesterday, 12:28 pm
  • Loney (finger) expected to return on Friday
    James Loney (finger) is expected to return to the Rays' active roster on Friday.

    Advice: Loney has been on a minor league rehab assignment since Tuesday. He broke a bone in his left middle finger back in late May and will wind up missing around five weeks. The first baseman returns to a .275/.322/.376 batting line, two homers, and 11 RBI in 30 games.
    Yesterday, 5:49 am
  • Jose Altuve goes 3-for-4 in Astros' win
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a HBP, an RBI and two runs scored in the Astros' 6-5 defeat of the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Altuve also swiped a pair of bases. He's hit in 10 straight games to push his average back up to .298. That doesn't quite measure up to last year, but though three months, he's given his fantasy owners exactly what they paid for.
    Wednesday, 9:56 pm
  • Jay (wrist) could be headed for disabled list
    Jon Jay (wrist) was held out of batting practice Wednesday and may be a candidate for the disabled list.

    Advice: Jay was activated from the disabled list on May 29 but has never gotten fully healthy. Since being activated, he's started 17 of the team's 29 games but has hit just .185/.280/.262 in that span. With Matt Holliday nearing a return and Randal Grichuk heating up at the plate, it may behoove the Cards to give Jay some more time on the DL to get his wrist right.
    Wednesday, 6:27 pm
    15-Day DL
    5:15 pm vs SD
  • Hosmer (finger) takes swings, plays catch
    Eric Hosmer (finger) took some soft-toss swings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hosmer remains out of the lineup, but he's working toward a return in the coming days. The first baseman also planned to play catch and field some grounders before Wednesday's game. The left ring finger sprain is still day-to-day at this point.
    Wednesday, 3:30 pm
  • Ellsbury (knee) back in Tampa lineup Wed.
    Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is back in the lineup Wednesday night at High-A Tampa.

    Advice: Ellsbury was held out Tuesday with some mild fatigue. He is still on track to rejoin the Yankees on Friday.

  • Steve Tolleson activated, then DFA'd
    Blue Jays activated INF Steve Tolleson from the 15-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

    Advice: Tolleson had been out since late May with a strained groin. He seems likely to clear waivers and remain in the organization.

  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI.
    Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • Jacoby Ellsbury could still return Friday
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) could still be activated on Friday even after sitting out Tuesday's rehab game because of fatigue.

    Advice: "I guess the running we've done the last couple of days has kind of worn him out," Girardi said Tuesday. "And it's not only in the one leg, it's in both legs. So we'll give him a day off today and hopefully he's back in there tomorrow." Ellsbury went 0-for-3 in his first rehab contest on Monday but needs to play at least a game or two in center field before being activated.

  • Ellsbury sits out rehab game due to fatigue
    Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) did not play in Tuesday's rehab game with High-A Tampa as scheduled due to "general fatigue," according to Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

    Advice: It's obviously not ideal, but at least it's not a significant setbacks. Ellsbury, who hopes to play Wednesday, had been slated for activation from the disabled list as soon as Friday. That could be pushed back a bit now.

  • Matt Carpenter out of Tuesday's lineup
    Matt Carpenter is out of Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

    Advice: Chris Sale is on the hill for the White Sox, so it's not a bad time to give Carpenter a bit of a breather. Mark Reynolds will start at third base while Xavier Scruggs plays first.
    Tuesday, 1:04 pm
  • Loney (finger) begins rehab stint Tuesday
    James Loney (finger) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Loney, out since May 24 with a broken left middle finger, will DH in his return to game action. He has a good chance to return prior to the All-Star break.
    Tuesday, 12:56 pm
  • Ellsbury (knee) begins rehab assignment
    Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Tampa.

    Advice: Ellsbury served as the DH on Monday, but he's expected to play center field on Tuesday. The tentative plan calls for him to be activated on Friday. Ellsbury has been sidelined since May 19 with a right knee sprain.
    Tuesday, 7:33 am

  • Tomas homers as D'Backs top the Dodgers
    Yasmany Tomas homered and walked in five trips to the plate Monday as the Diamondbacks took down the Dodgers.

    Advice: Tomas lined a two-run home run to left field in the sixth inning off of Yimi Garcia. It barely made it over the fence and was reviewed for fan interference, but was ultimately upheld. The power hasn't quite been there as often as the D'Backs would have liked, but Tomas has otherwise done a fine job at the plate in his first year in the majors, batting .314/.357/.440 with four home runs and 29 RBI.
    Monday, 10:34 pm
  • Altuve homers, helping the Astros beat KC
    Jose Altuve walked and hit a solo home run in four plate appearances on Monday as the Astros topped the Royals.

    Advice: Altuve slugged a solo home run to left field off of Joe Blanton in the third inning, padding his club's lead to 3-0 at the time. He's now on an eight-game hitting streak while carrying a .292/.336/.415 batting line with seven home runs, 31 RBI, and 21 stolen bases.
    Monday, 8:25 pm
  • Sizemore homers to break up perfecto bid
    Grady Sizemore homered to break up Cody Anderson's bid for a perfect game, finishing 1-for-4 in Monday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Sizemore drilled Anderson's offering over the fence in right field with one out in the seventh inning to end the perfecto. The veteran went 3-for-5 in his Rays debut -- and his return to the major leagues after a month-long layoff -- so things are looking up for him right now. We don't expect him to be of much fantasy utility over the long haul, though.
    Monday, 7:12 pm
  • James Loney (finger) nearing rehab assignment
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that James Loney (finger) could begin a rehab assignment "in the next couple of days."

    Advice: Loney has progressed more quickly than expected in his recovery from a broken left middle finger and could be activated prior to the All-Star break. The first baseman sports a .275/.322/.376 batting line with two homers and 11 RBI in 30 games this season.
    Monday, 5:10 pm
  • Ellsbury (knee) begins rehab assignment Mon.
    Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Monday.

    Advice: He was cleared for game action after working out with the Yankees over the weekend with no issues. Ellsbury will be used in the designated hitter spot for Tampa on Monday and is slated for 3-4 plate appearances. The Yankees expect him to need only a few rehab games, so Ellsbury could be activated from the disabled list before the end of the week.
    Monday, 3:47 pm

    4:05 pm vs TB
  • Hosmer (finger) out until at least Thursday
    Eric Hosmer (finger) is not expected to return to the lineup until at least Thursday.

    Advice: Hosmer is nursing a sprain of his left ring finger. He had to be pinch-hit for on Sunday due to the ailment and will not play in the series versus the Astros that runs through Wednesday. The disabled list doesn't appear to be under consideration at this point. Kendrys Morales will handle first base until Hosmer is ready.
    Monday, 3:23 pm
  • Eric Hosmer (finger) to be out a few days
    Eric Hosmer (finger) is expected to miss the next few games.

    Advice: Hosmer is dealing with a mild sprain of his left ring finger. He was able to start Sunday's game in the designated hitter spot but had to be removed late for a pinch-hitter. It doesn't sound like the disabled list is under consideration at this point, but it appears we won't see him again until later on in the week.
    Monday, 2:02 pm
  • Sizemore returns to MLB, records three hits
    Grady Sizemore, in his return to the majors, went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Sizemore was released by the Phillies at the beginning of the month, then signed to a minor league deal by the Rays two weeks later. He had been with Single-A Charlotte since. The 32-year-old veteran showed he still has some life left in his bat, providing one of the Rays' three runs with an RBI single in the seventh. Sizemore hit .245/.288/.296 with no home runs and six RBI in 104 plate appearances for the Phillies earlier this year.
    Sunday, 1:44 pm
  • Eric Hosmer nursing minor finger injury
    Eric Hosmer is nursing a mild sprain of his left ring finger.

    Advice: It's not keeping him from playing, but he will be used in the designated hitter spot rather than at first base Sunday, flip-flopping with Kendrys Morales. The ailment doesn't seem to affect Hosmer at the plate, so fantasy owners shouldn't have second thoughts about using him.
    Sunday, 11:52 am
  • A.J. Pollock sitting out on Sunday
    A.J. Pollock is absent from the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to simply be a day of rest. David Peralta is in center field with Pollock out, while Cliff Pennington is covering left.
    Sunday, 10:12 am
  • Marcus Semien not in Sunday's lineup
    Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to simply be a day of rest. Eric Sogard is handling shortstop while Semien sits.

  • Desmond Jennings moved to 60-day DL
    Rays transferred OF Desmond Jennings from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Grady Sizemore. Jennings is out until mid-August following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee earlier this month.
    Sunday, 7:18 am

    4:05 pm @NYY
  • Grady Sizemore called up by Rays
    Rays purchased the contract of OF Grady Sizemore from High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Sizmore inked a minor league deal with Tampa earlier this month after the Phillies cut him loose. He hit only .245/.288/.296 with no homers in 39 games for Philadelphia and will be used in a reserve role with the Rays.
    Sunday, 7:15 am
  • Inciarte (hamstring) likely back next weekend
    Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list next weekend.

    Advice: Inciarte won't be ready to return from his right hamstring strain when his 15 days are up on Wednesday, but it will be just a few days after that. "I think it's probably going to be in the 18-20 days (range) after the injury," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said.

  • Hosmer records two hits, steal against A's
    Eric Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored against the A's on Saturday.

    Advice: The multi-hit game was his fifth in his last nine contests. Hosmer now has four steals to go with a .294/.358/.450 line, 40 RBI and 40 runs scored.
    Saturday, 4:10 pm
  • James Loney (finger) ahead of schedule
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Saturday that James Loney (finger) is ahead of schedule in his recovery and should return to the Rays before the All-Star break.

    Advice: Loney has been on the shelf since May 25 with a broken left middle finger and was expected to be sidelined until after the Mid-Summer classic. Before hitting the disabled list, he was hitting .275/.322/.376 with two homers and 11 RBI in 30 games.
    Saturday, 9:53 am
  • Ellsbury could begin rehab assignment Monday
    Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will work out with the Yankees on Saturday, and if all goes well he could begin a minor league rehab assignment on Monday.

    Advice: He will only need a couple of games on his rehab assignment to get his timing back, so barring any setbacks there's a chance that he could rejoin the Yankees before the end of next week. Ellsbury has been sidelined since May 19 with a right knee sprain.

  • Danny Santana recalled from Triple-A
    Twins recalled INF/OF Danny Santana from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Santana rebounded with a .308/.343/.492 batting line over 15 games at Rochester after being sent down. All of his appearances with the Twins this season have been at shortstop, but they could use him in center field now with Byron Buxton (thumb) out.
    Friday, 7:24 am
  • Jose Altuve goes 3-for-4 in win
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with, two doubles, three runs scored and two steals as the Astros' No. 3 hitter on Thursday.

    Advice: The Astros liked Carlos Correa's work in the two hole while Jose Altuve missed time last week with a hamstring injury, so Altuve has been hitting third since returning Monday. It doesn't hurt his fantasy value at all.
    Thursday, 7:49 pm
  • Pollock has two hits, RBI in loss to Rox
    A.J. Pollock went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: It was another productive day for Pollock, who also drew a walk, scored a run, and stole a base. The 27-year-old continues to be a five-category stud for fantasy owners this season, batting .307 with nine home runs, 35 RBI, 15 stolen bases, and 47 runs scored over 71 games.
    Thursday, 4:00 pm
  • Matt Carpenter (back) tallies RBI in return
    Matt Carpenter (back) hit an RBI single in his return to the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his only hit in four at-bats, and he got gunned down at second base trying to stretch the single into a double. Carpenter missed Tuesday's series opener with tightness around the middle of his back. He should start at third base again on Thursday night.
    Thursday, 5:32 am
  • Yasmany Tomas goes 4-for-5 in victory
    Yasmany Tomas had a career-high four hits in five at-bats Wednesday as the Diamondbacks came back to beat the Rockies 8-7.

    Advice: Tomas singled in a run as part of the three-run rally in the ninth. He also had a double earlier in the game. Just when it looked like his average was finally starting to tumble some, he's back up to .328 now. That's even though he's sporting a 43/9 K/BB ratio in 189 at-bats.
    Wednesday, 10:32 pm
  • Tomas (illness) back in D'Backs lineup Wed.
    Yasmany Tomas (illness) is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Wednesday night in Denver.

    Advice: Tomas had to be scratched from Arizona's lineup Tuesday due to altitude sickness. He's obviously better-acclimated now. The 24-year-old Cuban has hit .315/.351/.429 with three home runs and 25 RBI through his first 53 games at the major league level.
    Wednesday, 1:50 pm
  • Josh Phegley belts fourth home run
    Josh Phegley doubled in a pair of runs and smacked a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Phegley let a run score on a passed ball in the game, but he certainly made up for it with his bat. The A's have received incredible production at the plate from their catchers this season, as Stephen Vogt is going to be an All-Star and Phegley is hitting .297/.350/.538 with four homers as his backup.
    Tuesday, 8:38 pm
  • Lough's three-run homer propels O's to win
    David Lough hit a three-run home run to propel the Orioles to a 6-4 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lough's three-run blast off Red Sox starter Joe Kelly in the second inning wasn't the difference in the game, but it certainly set the tone. Lough also scored a run the fourth inning as the O's extended their lead. The part-time outfielder has four home runs and 12 RBI to go with a .226/.261/.381 in 84 at-bats this year.
    Tuesday, 7:35 pm

  • Yasmany Tomas scratched due to illness
    Yasmany Tomas was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to illness.

    Advice: Tomas is having a little trouble with altitude sickness in Denver. It's a bummer for Tomas' fantasy owners, as they were surely looking forward to a matchup against Kyle Kendrick at Coors Field. Danny Dorn has taken his spot in right field.

  • Matt Carpenter has some mid-back tightness
    Matt Carpenter is dealing with some mid-back tightness.

    Advice: That's part of the reason Carpenter is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night in Miami, though manager Mike Matheny said he's been meaning to get the third baseman a day off anyway. It's not a serious issue. Mark Reynolds is at first base and Xavier Scruggs is at first base Tuesday versus the Marlins.

  • Matt Carpenter not in Tuesday's lineup
    Matt Carpenter is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins.

    Advice: The Cardinals just had a scheduled off-day on Monday, but perhaps Carpenter is just getting another day of rest. Mark Reynolds will fill in at third base while Xavier Scruggs will play first.
