  • Shane Peterson recalled from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled 1B/OF Shane Peterson from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Peterson has hit .320/.387/.523 with seven homers and 27 RBI at hitter-friendly Colorado Springs this season. He'll give the club some outfield depth with Khris Davis (knee) out.

  • Rosenthal: Red Sox acquire De Aza from O's
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox have acquired Alejandro De Aza from the Orioles.

    Advice: There's no word yet on what the Orioles will be getting in return or how much of what's remaining on his $5 million contract they might be picking up. De Aza was designated for assignment by Baltimore last Friday after batting just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. Boston certainly isn't an ideal landing spot for him given all the other outfield options that they have.

  • Jackson reaches base six times in SEA's loss
    Austin Jackson reached base six times, as he was hit by a pitch, drew a walk, had four hits, and stole a base in Tuesday's 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Jackson raised his OPS from .599 to .665 with the effort. He scored once, in the third inning on a Nelson Cruz single to tie the game at 1-1. He then gave the Mariners a temporary 2-1 lead in the sixth with an RBI double. Jackson may be starting to heat up as he's on a six-game hitting streak.

  • Burnett earns his sixth win in 5 IP vs Giants
    A.J. Burnett wasn't sharp, allowing four runs in five innings, but still got his sixth win on Tuesday facing the Giants.

    Advice: Burnett was burned for two runs in the first inning on a Buster Posey double, then two more on a Brandon Crawford homer in the third. All told, he allowed eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out five. His ERA balloons to 2.20 with a 1.22 WHIP and a 64/22 K/BB ratio in 69 2/3 innings. Burnett will vie for win number seven when he takes on the Brewers at home.

  • McCutchen flirts with cycle in win vs. Giants
    Andrew McCutchen finished a home run shy of the cycle, going 4-for-5 with two RBI as the Pirates won against the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: McCutchen is a ball of hot fire right now, as Tuesday's effort marked his sixth multi-hit game in his last 11 contests. He knocked in a run in the third inning with a single and padded the Pirates' lead with an RBI double in the ninth. McCutchen's early-season struggles are in the rear-view mirror now, as he's hitting .292/.379/.497 with seven home runs and 32 RBI. If there is one complaint, it's that he hasn't been very active on the base paths -- he has only three stolen bases in five attempts to date after going 18-for-21 last year.

  • Ziegler slams door on Braves for his 4th save
    Brad Ziegler slammed the door on the Braves in the ninth inning, notching his fourth save in Tuesday's 7-6 victory.

    Advice: Ziegler allowed a leadoff single to Todd Cunningham, but got a series of ground balls -- his forte -- to close out the ballgame. The right-hander has had some difficulty on the mound as of late, but the Diamondbacks don't have many options at the back end of the bullpen, so he figures to see the lion's share of save chances for the foreseeable future and should be owned in all fantasy leagues. He's 4-for-6 in save chances with a 1.50 ERA and a 14/8 K/BB ratio in 24 innings.

  • Miller uncharacteristically struggles in loss
    Shelby Miller got a no-decision in his worst outing of the season, surrendering four runs in 4 1/3 innings to the Diamondbacks as the Braves lost on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller entered the game with the best ERA among starters at 1.48, but the D'Backs didn't much care. The right-hander struggled mightily with control, walking six while giving up six hits and striking out only two. The control problems aren't enough to warrant concern, but fantasy owners should have known Miller wouldn't keep it up all season long. He still has a 1.89 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and a 51/24 K/BB ratio over 71 1/3 innings. Miller will try to bounce back in a home start versus the Padres.
    Yesterday, 10:10 pm
  • Cunningham logs 3 hits, 2 RBI in loss to ARI
    Todd Cunningham went 3-for-4 with a two-run double, but the Braves dropped Tuesday's game to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Cunningham capped off a five-run sixth inning with a two-run double, giving the Braves a temporary 6-4 lead. The 26-year-old had been held hitless over 19 plate appearances in his previous six games. He's batting only .277/.333/.362 on the year and doesn't have fantasy relevance at the moment.

  • Wilson stuggles, allows 5 runs in loss to TB
    C.J. Wilson gave up five runs in six innings of work Tuesday as the Angels lost 6-1 to the Rays.

    Advice: Wilson was immediately behind after Logan Forsythe hit a two-run homer in the first inning. The Rays rallied for three more runs in Wilson's final inning. The lefty allowed only four hits in total but walked three and hit a batter while striking out seven. Wilson has struggled as of late, allowing four-plus runs in three of his last four starts, but he still has a productive 3.55 ERA with a 1.18 WHIP and a 56/24 K/BB ratio over 71 innings. He'll face the Rays again in his next start, this time on the road.
    Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Archer strikes out 15 Angels over 8 innings
    Chris Archer was dominant again in a win on Tuesday, striking out 15 batters and allowing only one run over eight innings against the Angels.

    Advice: There may not be a hotter pitcher going right now than Archer. He struck out 12 in eight shutout frames a week ago against the Mariners and hasn't allowed more than one run in each of his last four starts. He scattered six Angel hits while walking zero in the effort, lowering his ERA to 2.01 with a 0.96 WHIP and a 97/20 K/BB ratio in 76 innings. Archer will get another crack at the Mariners in his next start, which will come in Seattle.
    Yesterday, 9:44 pm
  • Hosmer collects RBI single in loss to Indians
    Eric Hosmer had an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Hosmer's RBI single in the bottom of the third inning gave the Royals a brief lead, but it was the only run they would be able to push across against Indians starter Carlos Carrasco. Hosmer now has 32 RBI to put him among the league leaders in the AL. The first baseman owns a .301/.376/.500 line overall.
    Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Allen tosses perfect ninth to earn 12th save
    Cody Allen threw a perfect ninth inning against the Royals on Tuesday to earn his 12th save of the season.

    Advice: Allen struck out two in the scoreless inning. The right-hander appears over his early struggles, having converted nine straight save opportunities. Allen owns a still-unsightly 5.01 ERA and 1.50 WHIP but has a 34/13 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings on the year.
    Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Guthrie holds Tribe to one run in no-decision
    Jeremy Guthrie allowed just one run on two hits over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Tuesday.

    Advice: Aside from a Brandon Moss solo home run, Guthrie was nearly perfect on the evening. It was quite a contrast to his last start in which he allowed 11 runs over an inning-plus of work. The right-hander walked one and struck out one over his 5 2/3 innings Tuesday, but his counterpart, Carlos Carrasco, was equally as strong to deny Guthrie of a decision. He'll attempt to get back in the win column Sunday against the Rangers.
    Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Carrasco strikes out eight to down Royals
    Carlos Carrasco allowed one run over seven innings, striking out eight, in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Carrasco allowed five hits and two walks over his seven innings, the third straight start in which he's allowed five hits or fewer. Not coincidentally, he's won all three of those starts. Carrasco is now 7-4 with a 3.92 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 74/15 K/BB ratio over 64 1/3 innings this year. Carrasco will try to make it four straight when he faces the Orioles on Sunday.
    Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Flaherty has two-run triple in loss to Astros
    Ryan Flaherty hit a two-run triple and scored a run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Flaherty's triple was part of a four-run second inning against Astros starter Collin McHugh. The triple, his second of the year, was Flaherty's only hit in three at-bats. Flaherty is hitting .276/.364/.517 in a part-time role this year.
    Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Ziegler notches third save of season
    Brad Ziegler allowed a run, but managed to hold on for his third save of the season Friday against the Brewers.

    Advice: After entering the bottom of the ninth inning with a three-run lead, Ziegler allowed a leadoff double to Gerardo Parra before getting Ryan Braun to ground out. Elian Herrera followed with another ground out to knock in a run, but Ziegler got Aramis Ramirez to fly out to end the ballgame. The sidearmer doesn't miss many bats, so he's not the prototypical closer-type, but he's the best option in Arizona's bullpen right now.
    Friday, 9:15 pm
  • Orioles getting interest in Alejandro De Aza
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "there's said to be a bit of a market" for Alejandro De Aza.

    Advice: De Aza was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Wednesday after batting .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. He's making $5 million this season, so the O's would likely have to eat some of the contract to move him in a trade. Heyman says that the Angels are not among the clubs interested in De Aza.

  • OF McCutchen has another multi-hit effort
    Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and two RBI as the Pirates bested the Padres on Thursday.

    Advice: McCutchen has finally woken up from his early-season slumber. He's had multi-hit games in five of his last eight, recording three in three of them. Hitting .188 as recently as May 6, McCutchen has his slash line up to .272/.364/.473. Expect it to keep rising.

  • Burnett wins 5th straight, Pirates blast Pads
    A.J. Burnett allowed five runs -- four earned -- over 5 2/3 innings Thursday in an 11-5 win against the Padres.

    Advice: He struck out six and walked two. Burnett wasn't sharp, but he didn't have to be facing off against an imploding Ian Kennedy. The 38-year-old has won five consecutive starts and is now 5-1 with a 1.81 ERA and 1.16 WHIP.
    Thursday, 10:54 pm
  • Wilson holds Tigers to 1 ER in 12-2 laugher
    C.J. Wilson painted six innings of one-run ball in the Angels' 12-2 blowout of the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Wilson was hard to touch -- he surrendered only two hits and struck out seven -- but his control wavered in walking five. Fortunately, none of that mattered as he danced from danger and his teammates turned Buck Farmer and Tom Gorzelanny into human PiƱatas. At 3-3 with a 3.18 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, Wilson is pitching slightly better than his career norms.
    Thursday, 10:35 pm
  • Miller gives up just 1 run, takes loss anyway
    Shelby Miller was slapped with the tough-luck loss on Thursday, yielding just one run over seven innings in a 7-0 loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Miller was scarcely in danger. Oh, except for that seventh inning Brandon Belt homer. Chris Heston was dealing across the bump, ensuring that Miller's record would drop to 5-2. The youngster, who struck out one and walked none tonight, has proven to be everything the Braves could have asked for and more, posting a 1.48 ERA and 0.88 WHIP across 10 starts.
    Thursday, 10:27 pm
  • Allen whiffs 2 in drama-less 9th to earn save
    Cody Allen struck out two and tossed a scoreless ninth to convert his 10th save of the season in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Allen did not look long for the late innings in going 0-2 with a 11.57 ERA in April, but he's converted all six of his save chances in May and given up an acceptable four runs in 13 innings. The overall numbers will still make your eyes bleed (5.85 ERA and 1.65 WHIP), but Allen will continue to drag those down to baseline.
    Thursday, 10:08 pm
  • Brad Ziegler blows save in ninth
    Brad Ziegler took a blown save and a loss after giving up two runs -- one earned -- in the ninth Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Ziegler blew the save immediately, giving up a leadoff homer to Jason Heyward in the ninth. After that came a single, a groundout, an intentional walk, a walk and then what looked like an inning-ending double play ball. It turned out to be the game-winner for the Cardinals since a sliding Peter Bourjos hit catcher Jordan Pacheco's leg as he was making the home-to-first relay, sending the throw into right field. Ziegler should hang on to closing duties for now. It was his first blown save in three tries since he replaced Addison Reed.
    Wednesday, 9:08 pm
  • Archer fans 12 over 8 IP but gets no-decision
    Chris Archer struck out 12 batters across eight scoreless innings, but took a no-decision as the Rays lost late to the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Advice: Archer was out-dueling Felix Hernandez, but closer Brad Boxberger took the hill in the ninth inning despite Archer having thrown only 95 pitches. Archer allowed only two hits and walked zero batters. The right-hander has a terrific 2.12 ERA with a 0.99 WHIP and an 82/20 K/BB ratio in 68 innings. He'll try to get back in the win column when he faces the Angels on the road in his next outing.
    Wednesday, 12:36 pm
  • Carlos Carrasco goes eight strong in win
    Carlos Carrasco pitched eight innings of one-run ball and struck out eight as the Indians crushed the Rangers 12-3 on Wednesday.

    Advice: It can be hard to see how Carrasco still has a 4.24 ERA with his 66/13 K/BB ratio and just five homers allowed in 57 1/3 innings, but then one remembers just how bad the Indians defense is and it's a bit easier to figure out.
    Wednesday, 12:18 pm
  • Alejandro De Aza designated for assignment
    Orioles designated OF Alejandro De Aza for assignment.

    Advice: He played really well for the O's last year down the stretch of the regular season and in the playoffs, but they've decided to cut him loose after his slow start in 2015. De Aza, who batted leadoff for Baltimore on Opening Day, has hit just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games this season and was seeing his playing time dwindle. He's making $5 million this season, which means he'll almost surely clear waivers.

  • Ryan Flaherty activated from disabled list
    Orioles activated INF Ryan Flaherty from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Flaherty is playing second base and hitting seventh for the O's Wednesday. He's battled a groin issue for over a month -- an injury that caused two DL stints -- but is convinced he's over it now.
    Wednesday, 10:42 am
  • Jackson (hamstring) back in M's lineup
    Austin Jackson (hamstring) will start in center field and bat leadoff Tuesday against the Rays in his return from the disabled list.

    Advice: Jackson has been sidelined since May 3 with a sprained right ankle. He returns to a .242/.294/.326 batting line over 25 games.
    Tuesday, 12:05 pm
  • Austin Jackson activated from disabled list
    Mariners activated OF Austin Jackson from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Jackson batted only .263/.333/.289 over nine rehab games for Tacoma, but he's feeling healthy and that's really all the Mariners care about. The veteran outfielder had been sidelined since early May with a sprained right ankle.
    Monday, 7:26 pm
  • Austin Jackson (ankle) to return this week
    Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that the club will make a decision on when Austin Jackson (ankle) will be activated "sometime this week."

    Advice: The Mariners will end a string of six straight games on artificial turf on Wednesday, so the team could decide to just activate Jackson at the beginning of an 11-game homestand on Thursday. He's been out since early May with a sprained right ankle. "I'm told he's moving pretty good, so we'll see," McClendon said.
    Monday, 4:17 pm
  • Guthrie obliterated for 11 runs by Yankees
    Jeremy Guthrie was obliterated for 11 earned runs in one official inning of work Monday by the Yankees.

    Advice: Chase Headley, Brian McCann, and Brett Gardner all went deep in the bottom of the first inning and then Stephen Drew's three-run shot with no outs in the second finally drove Guthrie from the game. He entered the afternoon outing with a 4.75 ERA and watched it rise all the way up to 6.70. Guthrie is not a fantasy starter.
    Monday, 1:36 pm
  • Alejandro De Aza goes hitless against Astros
    Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-3 from the ninth spot in the Orioles order on Monday.

    Advice: De Aza is just 8-for-42 in May (.190), bringing his overall average down to .216. He's already lost some playing time against right-handers, and it looks like he's in position to lose more to David Lough and Travis Snider.

  • Austin Jackson (ankle) plays eighth rehab gm.
    Austin Jackson (ankle) went 1-for-4 with a run scored in his eighth rehab game Sunday with Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: And he went 3-for-5 with a walk on Saturday. Jackson should return from the disabled list early this week, perhaps as soon as Monday. The 28-year-old center fielder has been out since May 3 with a right ankle sprain.
