    Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored as the Mets easily handled the Nationals on Monday.

    Advice: Granderson knocked in the final two of the Mets' 12 runs with a seventh-inning single. The outfielder has been on a tear at the plate, batting .320 (24-for-75) in his last 18 games. He's turned in a productive year, posting a .258/.351/.445 triple-slash line along with 17 home runs and 40 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:20 pm
  • Conforto hits first MLB HR as the Mets roll
    Michael Conforto's first major league home run was a three-run home run that gave the Mets a lead they wouldn't relinquish on Monday versus the Marlins.

    Advice: The 22-year-old rookie was batting .211 (4-for-19) in his first six big league games entering Monday. With a pair of ducks on the pond, Conforto deposited a Tom Koehler offering over the fence in right field at Marlins Park to give the Mets a 3-0 lead. He finished 2-for-4.

  • Castillo's homer binge continues in ARI win
    Welington Castillo hit another home run in Monday's victory versus the Nationals, finishing 1-for-4.

    Advice: Castillo went back-to-back with David Peralta in the fourth inning against Doug Fister. His solo blast made it a 4-0 ballgame. The catcher has five home runs in his last six games, giving him 12 on the season and 10 since joining the Diamondbacks in early June. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:57 pm
  • Freddie Freeman suffers strained oblique
    Freddie Freeman was pulled from Monday's game versus the Giants with a right oblique strain.

    Advice: Well, at least he didn't aggravate his wright injury. The Braves are calling Freeman day-to-day for the time being, but, as we all know, oblique injuries usually wind up leading to stints on the disabled list. Chris Johnson would be poised to take over at first base if Freeman misses significant time. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:13 pm
  • Freddie Freeman exits with undisclosed injury
    Freddie Freeman left Monday's game against the Giants with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: He didn't suffer an obvious injury but was replaced at first base by Chris Johnson in the top of the fifth inning. The worry has to be that Freeman re-injured his right wrist, but the Braves should offer more on his status later Monday. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:39 pm
  • Jose Ramirez recalled from Triple-A
    Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Ramirez lost his shortstop job when Francisco Lindor was promoted but should see some time at second base while Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is out. He's hit only .176/.243/.235 in the majors this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:36 pm
  • Angel Pagan (knees) scratched from lineup
    Angel Pagan was scratched from Monday's lineup due to soreness in both knees.

    Advice: Pagan had an issue with his left knee back in June and not only is it sore again but apparently his right one is, as well. "It's really evident," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. The skipper indicated that it will likely be a multi-day absence for Pagan. Gregor Blanco is in center field Monday and Nori Aoki is in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:42 pm
  • Robinson Cano playing 2B on Monday
    Robinson Cano is back at second base for the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Cano has been limited to designated hitter duty the last couple days due to a minor abdominal strain, but he's ready to play his position again with the DH not available in Colorado. Ketel Marte is starting in center field. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:31 pm
  • Capps (elbow) expected back when eligible
    An MRI on Carter Capps' right elbow showed no major damage and he's expected to resume throwing in 3-4 days.

    Advice: Capps was placed on the disabled list Monday with a strained pitching elbow, but the Marlins think he'll be ready to return when his 15 days are up. It wouldn't be a surprise if it ultimately takes a bit longer than that, but obviously this is good news. Capps has been an elite reliever this season, posting a 1.16 ERA and 58/7 K/BB ratio over 31 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:09 pm

  • Steven Matz (lat) resumes throwing program
    Steven Matz (lat) threw on flat ground Monday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's done any throwing since he was diagnosed with a partially torn left lat muscle nearly four weeks ago. Obviously, the Mets will proceed cautiously with Matz, building him back up slowly. There's no timetable for his return, but Monday was a nice step. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:06 pm

  • Ervin Santana gives up three earned runs
    Ervin Santana gave up three earned runs in six innings Monday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Santana allowed six hits and three walks in the tough afternoon outing at Rogers Centre. He had been fairly sharp in his first four outings since returning from an 80-game PED suspension, but his last two turns in the Twins' rotation have not gone well. The 32-year-old right-hander now stands 2-2 with a 3.89 ERA. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:53 pm
  • Blue Jays outright Ezequiel Carrera to AAA
    Blue Jays sent OF Ezequiel Carrera outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Carrera was designated for assignment by the Jays on Saturday and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 28-year-old outfielder is a .259/.311/.349 career hitter. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 pm

  • Marlins place Carter Capps (elbow) on the DL
    Marlins placed RHP Carter Capps on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.

    Advice: It's not clear how long he might be out. Capps has used his funky delivery to become one of the most dominant relievers in baseball this year, boasting a 1.16 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, and 58/7 K/BB ratio in 31 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:17 pm

  • Peraza hits first homer for Oklahoma City
    Dodgers 2B prospect Jose Peraza provided three hits in Sunday's doubleheader for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    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 Today, 12:16 pm

  • Athletics pick up Danny Valencia off waivers
    Athletics claimed INF/OF Danny Valencia off waivers from the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Valencia was designated for assignment by Toronto in a somewhat surprising move after the July 31 trade deadline. He's having a very good season and drew interest from a range of teams (including the White Sox, Rangers, and Orioles) on the waiver wire. The 30-year-old probably isn't going to carry a ton of fantasy value in Oakland. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:06 pm

  • Michael Morse starting at 1B on Monday
    Michael Morse is batting seventh and starting at first base Monday in his Pirates debut.

    Advice: Morse was acquired from the Dodgers in a July 31 deadline trade. He had been shipped from Miami to Los Angeles one day prior as part of a big 13-player, three-team swap. The 33-year-old first baseman has struggled mightily this season and probably won't suddenly take on significant fantasy value with Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:00 pm
  • Pirates option Jaff Decker to Triple-A
    Pirates optioned OF Jaff Decker to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: The move clears a roster spot for Michael Morse, who was acquired on July 31 for Jose Tabata. Decker, 25, has logged just 13 at-bats this season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:19 am

  • Cano (abdomen) expects to be in M's lineup
    Robinson Cano (abdomen) expects to be in the Mariners' starting lineup Monday at Colorado.

    Advice: Cano was limited to designated hitter duties on Saturday and Sunday against the Twins due to a Grade 1 abdominal strain. He'll have to return to second base Monday as the M's open a three-game series in a National League park. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:15 am
  • Granderson blasts 17th homer as Mets sweep
    Curtis Granderson blasted his 17th home run of the season as the Mets completed their three-game sweep of the Nationals on Sunday.

    Advice: Granderson's two-run blast off Jordan Zimmermann got the Mets on the board in the third inning. He would immediately be followed by a solo shot from teammate Daniel Murphy, a single from Yoenis Cespedes and a two-run bomb off the bat of Lucas Duda to provide the extent of the Mets offense. Granderson has quietly had a very strong season atop the Mets lineup, slashing .254/.347/.443 with 17 long balls and 38 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:59 pm
  • ChiSox, Rangers, O's interested in Valencia
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the White Sox, Rangers and Orioles have emerged as the most likely destinations for Danny Valencia.

    Advice: In a bit of a surprise move, Valencia was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday. He is expected to be claimed off trade waivers on Monday, which will give the Jays an opportunity to deal him. Valencia is having a terrific season, slashing .296/.331/.506 with seven long balls and 29 RBI in his 162 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:16 pm

  • Pagan's ninth inning double not enough
    Angel Pagan went 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Pagan doubled off of locked-in Rangers starter Martin Perez with one out in the ninth inning. He would score on a Buster Posey RBI single, but the Giants were unable to complete a winning rally, as they fell by a score of 2-1. Pagan is hitting a light .264/.297/.317 with no home runs, 25 RBI, 37 runs scored and six steals this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:02 pm
  • Mets recall Michael Conforto from Triple-A
    Mets recalled OF Michael Conforto from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Conforto was just sent back down to the minor leagues on Saturday to make room on the active roster for Yoenis Cespedes. The 22-year-old is hitting .211 (4-for-19) with no homers and three RBI through his first six games in the big leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:41 pm
  • Carter Capps leaves game with elbow stiffness
    Carter Capps was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Padres with right elbow stiffness.

    Advice: The injury is believed to be minor, and the Marlins are listing the hard-throwing right-hander as day-to-day. He owns an outstanding 1.16 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 58/7 K/BB ratio in just 31 innings on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:04 pm

  • Mets send down Michael Conforto
    Mets optioned OF Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: New York sent him down to make room for Yoenis Cespedes. Conforto got off to a good start (4-for-7 in his first two games), but went hitless over his last four contests. The 22-year-old should have plenty more chances to make an impact in the big leagues, but for now, he's better off getting regular at-bats in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:49 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
  • Jays designate Danny Valencia for assignment
    Blue Jays designated INF/OF Danny Valencia for assignment.

    Advice: With all of the recent acquisitions that the Blue Jays have made, they were forced to make a few tough decisions on their roster and it appears that Valencia is the odd-man out. The lefty-masher was hitting .296/.331/.506 overall with seven homers and 29 RBI in 162 at-bats. He should attract interest from plenty of teams looking to upgrade their bench.

  • Blue Jays designate Carrera for assignment
    Blue Jays designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

    Advice: The 28-year-old outfielder had done a nice job in limited time for the Jays, hitting .279/.327/.374 with three homers and 21 RBI in 70 games. He could attract some interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:15 am

  • Welington Castilo belts game winning homer
    Welington Castillo belted a game-winning solo home run in the 10th inning on Friday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 6-4 victory over the Astros.

    Advice: Castillo victimized Pat Neshek for the go-ahead blast, which was immediately followed by a solo shot off the bat of teammate Jake Lamb. Castillo finished the night 3-for-5 and scored three runs. He has been a tremendous addition to the Diamondbacks, hitting .293 (34-for-116) with nine homers and 20 RBI in just 36 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:04 pm
  • Freeman belts 14th homer in loss to Phillies
    Freddie Freeman belted his 14th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday.

    Advice: The Phillies jumped out to an early 9-0 lead in this one, and Freeman's two-run shot in the eighth merely made it a 9-3 ballgame. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .288/.354/.509 to go along with 14 bombs and 45 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:30 pm
  • Robinson Cano (abdomen) out again Friday
    Robinson Cano (abdomen) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's likely to sit out through the weekend with a Grade 1 abdominal strain. The Mariners have brought up Ketel Marte for infield help while Cano recovers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:53 pm
  • Pirates acquire Michael Morse for Jose Tabata
    Pirates acquired 1B/OF Michael Morse from the Dodgers in exchange for OF Jose Tabata.

    Advice: Morse was designated for assignment after the Dodgers picked him up in the three-team deal with the Marlins and Braves. He's hit only .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season but offers the Pirates an option at first base against left-handed pitching. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:23 pm
  • Yankees talking to Marlins about Capps
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees "may turn to" Carter Capps if they're unable to complete a deal for Craig Kimbrel.

    Advice: They've also been connected to Aroldis Chapman, although it could all be a ploy to get San Diego to lower their asking price for Kimbrel. Capps isn't as flashy of a name as either of the aforementioned closers, but he's been one of the best relievers in baseball this season with a 1.21 ERA and ridiculous 56 strikeouts over 29 2/3 innings.

  • Dodgers designate Morse for assignment
    Dodgers designated 1B Michael Morse for assignment.

    Advice: Morse was acquired on Thursday as part of the massive 13-player, three-team trade with the Marlins and Braves, but it's clear that he was just a salary dump. The 33-year-old is unlikely to attract much interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:34 pm
  • Granderson launches three-run homer in loss
    Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Granderson's three-run tater off of Padres starter Andrew Cashner in the fifth inning pushed the Met advantage to 4-0. They would ultimately lose 8-7 after blowing a six-run lead. The homer was Granderson's 16th of the season. He also contributed a double in the contest. While he's hitting a somewhat pedestrian .255/.350/.440, he's on track to finish with 20+ home runs for the eighth time in his career. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:39 pm
  • Dodgers acquire Michael Morse from Marlins
    Dodgers acquired 1B Michael Morse from the Marlins in the 13-player, three-team Mat Latos trade.

    Advice: Morse doesn't fit all that well on the Dodgers' current roster and it seems possible that they might turn around and designate him for assignment to clear room for some of the other players they acquired in this massive swap. Morse, 33, was batting just .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season for Miami. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:34 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

  • 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

  • Castillo blasts two homers as D'Backs top M's
    Welington Castillo blasted a pair of home runs off Felix Hernandez on Wednesday, powering the Diamondbacks to an 8-2 victory over the Mariners in Seattle.

    Advice: Castillo capped off a four-run uprising in the first inning with a two-run blast, then added a solo shot in the fourth. He finished the afternoon 2-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .280 (31-for-111) with eight homers and 19 RBI in 35 games with the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:53 pm
  • Cano dealing with Grade 1 abdominal strain
    Robinson Cano's MRI results revealed a Grade 1 abdominal strain.

    Advice: The Mariners are hopeful that he will be able to avoid the disabled list and should be cleared to DH in 5-6 days. In the meantime, the M's will play a man short on the bench. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:12 pm
  • Santana blasted for eight earned by Pirates
    Ervin Santana was blasted for eight earned runs in 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Yikes. Santana entered the afternoon outing with a 2.60 ERA in four starts since returning from his PED suspension and he left it with a 3.78 ERA. The 32-year-old right-hander will try to get back on track next week in a road outing against the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:57 pm
  • Dodgers/Marlins deal could involve third team
    Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that there is a third team involved in the trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Bowden says the deal will be "bigger than expected." There's a good chance it means Morse will be flipped to another team, as the Dodgers have little use for him. We should know more details later Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:43 pm
  • 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

  • Freeman homers early, Braves defeated by O's
    Freddie Freeman went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run on Tuesday as the Braves lost 7-3 to the Orioles.

    Advice: Freeman, playing in his fourth game since being activated from the disabled list, staked the Braves to a 2-0 lead when he drilled a two-run home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez in the first inning. He's now 2-for-14 since being activated, but still owns a terrific .291/.359/.511 batting line along with 13 home runs and 43 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:17 pm
  • Granderson homers, Mets blank the Padres
    Curtis Granderson had a two-run home run and a single in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mets shut out the Padres 4-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Granderson added insurance when he took reliever Shawn Kelly yard in the eighth inning, doubling the Mets' lead. Though his bat has cooled off a bit in July, the outfielder has turned in a solid year despite carrying a .682 OPS through the end of April. Granderson is batting .253/.346/.431 with 15 home runs and 33 RBI to date. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:49 pm
  • Welington Castillo (elbow) not in lineup
    Welington Castillo (elbow) is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Castillo left Monday's game after being hit on the elbow by a pitch. He looks to be day-to-day for now. Oscar Hernandez is catching Tuesday, while Jarrod Saltalamacchia is serving as the designated hitter. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:04 pm
  • Welington Castillo exits after HBP on elbow
    Welington Castillo left Monday's game versus the Mariners after being hit on the elbow by a pitch.

    Advice: Castillo didn't sound too optimistic about the injury after the game. "It doesn’t feel really good right now," he said. "We will see tomorrow." Jarrod Saltalamacchia would be in line for more playing time if Castillo is sidelined for a while. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:26 pm
  • 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

    Advice: Castillo pushed the Diamondbacks' lead to 2-0 with a solo shot off of Mike Montgomery in the second inning. The catcher has gone yard six times in 122 plate appearances as a member of the Diamondbacks, giving him eight total along with 23 RBI.

  • Cano slugs three-run homer in M's loss
    Robinson Cano slugged a three-run homer Saturday in the Mariners' loss to the Blue Jays.

  • Braves activate Freddie Freeman from DL
    Braves activated 1B Freddie Freeman from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Freeman has been sidelined since June 18 due to a bone bruise in his wrist, but the club apparently feels that he's ready to return without a lengthy minor league rehab assignment. Before hitting the DL, the 25-year-old slugger was hitting .299/.367/.520 with 12 homers and 41 RBI in 66 games. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 12:14 pm
  • Welington Castillo appears as pinch hitter

    Advice: Castillo was scratched from the D'Backs starting lineup on Wednesday due to tightness in his hamstring and hasn't started since. He's expected to get back behind the dish at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 5:38 am
  • Conforto hitless, drives in run in MLB debut
    Michael Conforto went 0-for-3 with an RBI ground out in his major league debut Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Conforto grounded out in all three of hits at-bats, so his first career hit will have to wait for another day, but he did manage to drive in his first run. It's hard to say for sure whether he's ready, but the Mets are prepared to give him a shot in left field with Michael Cuddyer sidelined. Things could change if he struggles or the team makes another trade. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 7:01 pm
  • Michael Conforto batting seventh in MLB debut
    Michael Conforto is in left field and batting seventh in his major league debut on Friday.

    Advice: He and the Mets will be facing off against Ian Thomas and the Dodgers. Following weeks of speculation, Conforto was finally promoted after putting up a .297/.372/.482 batting line with 12 homers and 54 RBI between High- and Double-A this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 1:50 pm
  • Giants could bring back Michael Morse
    MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that Michael Morse "might just be dealt" to the Giants.

    Advice: Morse, of course, had a nice season for the Giants last year. However, he's hit only .206/.268/.310 during an injury-shortened 2015 campaign and is owed $8 million next season. Plus, the Giants don't really have a need for him other than a bat off the bench. It's hard to see a fit unless the Marlins pay down the bulk of what remains on his contract. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 9:45 am
  • Michael Conforto called up from Double-A
    Mets purchased the contract of OF Michael Conforto from Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: The Mets bought as much time as they could with Michael Cuddyer's knee injury but ultimately placed him on the disabled list Friday. That means Conforto, who was the club's first-round draft pick last season, will take over as the regular left fielder at least against right-handers. Ranked by Baseball America at midseason as the No. 14 prospect in the game, Conforto has batted .297/.372/.482 with 12 homers and 54 RBI between High- and Double-A this season. The 22-year-old is worth a shot in all fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 8:18 am
