  • Goldschmidt homers and drives in three
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Goldy almost single-handedly won the Diamondbacks the game, as he drove in three of the four runs. The other was driven in by starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson. Goldschmidt hit an RBI single in the first inning, then decided to up the excitement factor with a two-run homer in the third. Just another day at the office for the slugger, who is hitting a phenomenal .333/.438/.635 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and 34 runs scored.

  • Miley limits Angels to one run over eight IP
    Wade Miley hurled a strong start in a 6-1 win over the Angels on Sunday, tossing eight innings of one-run ball and allowing just four hits.

    Advice: Miley cruised through this one. Outside of an RBI double by Mike Trout in the sixth inning, the Angels were unable to touch him. He allowed just four hits while striking out two and walking one. After a rough go of it early, Miley's now won three straight starts and has dropped his ERA to 4.47 to pair with a 1.31 WHIP and a 31/19 K/BB ratio in 50 1/3 innings pitched. He'll gun for a fourth straight win in a showdown with the Rangers next Friday.

  • Santiago can't match Miley in pitcher's duel
    Despite allowing just three runs in 6 2/3 innings, Hector Santiago was saddled with the loss against the Red Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: Santiago probably couldn't have foreseen Wade Miley pitching well, but these things happen sometimes. It's not that Santiago pitched poorly. He struck out six and walked just one while scattering seven hits over 6 2/3 innings. The suddenly-hot Napoli touched up Santiago in the second inning with a long two-run homer. Santiago also allowed a less loud run in the form of a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice fly in the fifth. The outing bumped his ERA slightly and he holds a 2.47 mark, as well as a 1.23 WHIP and 50/22 K/BB ratio across 54 2/3 innings. Now that he's finished with the East Coast, he'll head back home for a start against the Tigers.

  • Simmons hits RBI single in low-scoring win
    Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-2 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: At the time Simmons hit his run-scoring single off of Jimmy Nelson in the sixth inning, it made the score 2-0. The Brewers would drive closer with a run in the seventh, but Simmons' RBI would ultimately stand as the barrier between victory and defeat. The RBI was his 18th of the year and Simmons is now hitting .248/.307/.394. He's cooled off a bit since a hot start.

  • Cabrera rips 11th homer as Tigers fall to HOU
    Miguel Cabrera doubled and hit a solo home run in five at-bats Sunday, but the Tigers lost to the Astros.

    Advice: Cabrera hit a solo home run in the ninth inning, trying to help the Tigers overcome a three-run deficit, but it wasn't enough. As expected, the two-time AL MVP has done nothing but hit this season, carrying a .344/.446/.613 triple-slash line with 11 home runs and 32 RBI.

  • X-Rays come bace negative for Cowgill (hand)
    Collin Cowgill was scratched from Sunday's game against the Red Sox after he hurt his top hand while swinging in batting practice pregame.

    Advice: He was sent out for precautionary X-rays which came back negative. Cowgill has also been battling back tightness in recent days, which many had thought was the reason for his late scratch from Sunday's lineup. He should be considered day-to-day and looks as though he'll avoid a trip to the disabled list.

  • Kyle Seager goes deep in Mariners' loss
    Kyle Seager singled and belted a solo homer in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: He scored the Mariners' only two runs of the game, going deep in the second and then scoring on a sac fly in the seventh. Seager is starting to heat up, having homered in back-to-back games and while hitting .311 with five longballs over his last 16 contests.

  • Jared Burton inks minors deal with Rangers
    Rangers signed RHP Jared Burton to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Burton allowed three runs over four relief innings with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate before being cut loose. The soon-to-be 34-year-old held a 4.36 ERA out of the Twins' bullpen last season and is a decent depth addition.

    Matt Stites (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Visalia later this week.

    Advice: It will come after he makes one final appearance in extended spring training on Monday. Stites was diagnosed with a strained right flexor tendon in spring training, but he's made nice progress lately and it appears he could be back early next month.

  • Shane Victorino (calf) lands on disabled list
    Red Sox placed OF Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain.

    Advice: Victorino originally hurt the calf in the middle of last week and then aggravated the ailment on Saturday. He's played just 50 of a possible 204 games since the start of 2014 due to a variety of ailments. Rusney Castillo will be the Red Sox' everyday right fielder.

  • Lagares (pectoral, elbow) scratched Sunday
    Juan Lagares (pectoral, elbow) has been scratched from the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's still dealing with elbow and pectoral soreness. It's not clear at this point whether the Mets might consider putting Lagares on the disabled list, but for now he should be considered day-to-day. Darrell Ceciliani took his spot in center field Sunday.
    Today, 8:14 am
  • Lagares still nursing pectoral, elbow issues
    Juan Lagares is still dealing with soreness in his right pectoral and right elbow.

    Advice: Lagares' elbow issue dates back to last season and his pectoral soreness caused him to miss three games earlier this month. He's in Sunday's lineup and will attempt to play through the discomfort.

  • Jose Altuve getting some rest Sunday

  • Andrew Lambo (foot) not progressing
    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Saturday that Andrew Lambo (foot) is "still not showing the signs of improvement and progress to get him into any type of game."

    Advice: Lambo has been sidelined for the last three weeks with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. It's an ailment that can linger and it doesn't sound like the Pirates are expecting him back anytime soon.

  • Kennedy allows two runs in loss to Dodgers
    Ian Kennedy allowed two earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Joc Pederson slugged a solo shot off Kennedy in the bottom of the first and then Justin Turner smacked an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth. Kennedy was otherwise sharp, yielding only six total hits and zero walks while striking out six Los Angeles hitters. The 30-year-old will carry a 2-4 record, 6.11 ERA, and 1.39 WHIP into his next start at home against the Pirates. He's been very inconsistent this season, but better results should be coming.
    Yesterday, 9:27 pm
  • Shane Victorino leaves with calf tightness
    Shane Victorino left Saturday's game with left calf tightness.

    Advice: Victorino tweaked his calf chasing down a fly ball in the third inning. Mookie Betts pinch-hit for him in his next at-bat. Victorino's body has really let him down the last few seasons. Including tonight, he's played just 50 of a possible 204 games since the start of 2014.

  • Paul Goldschmidt hits 11th homer
    Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI against the Cubs on Friday.

    Advice: After the Cubs pulled ahead in the 10th, it was Goldschmidt's two-run homer that tied the game back up. He's certainly in the running for early NL MVP honors with his .331 average, 11 homers and 35 RBI in 41 games.

  • Seager ejected from Thursday's game
    Kyle Seager was ejected from Thursday's game against the Orioles in the fifth inning.

    Advice: Seager struck out looking in the top of the fifth inning and apparently didn't like the call, as he was tossed by home plate umpire John Tumpane. He went 2-for-3 with a run scored before exiting. Willie Bloomquist took over at third base.

  • Victorino (calf) scratched from lineup Thu.
    Shane Victorino was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rangers due to general soreness which Red Sox manager John Farrell says is "centralized somewhat" in his left calf.

    Advice: Farrell is hopeful that the injury is a day-to-day situation. Daniel Nava will fill in and start in right field Thursday against the Rangers.

  • Goldschmidt out of Arizona lineup Thursday
    Paul Goldschmidt is not in Arizona's lineup Thursday.

    Advice: It's a rare day of rest for the star first baseman. Mark Trumbo will cover first and David Peralta is in left field. Goldschmidt is just 4-for-24 with two walks on the Diamondbacks' current road trip, but he's capable of busting out of the mini slump at any moment.
    Thursday, 6:45 am
  • Miley holds Rangers to two runs over 7 IP
    Wade Miley held the Rangers to two runs over seven innings in a win Tuesday.

    Advice: Miley allowed seven hits and a walk, striking out seven in the victory. His first go-round with the Red Sox has been largely positive, but a few bumps in the road have his ERA at 5.10 after eight starts. Miley is 3-4 on the year, but he's won two straight and will attempt to even his record Sunday against the Angels.

  • Santiago keeps rolling, tosses 7 solid frames
    Hector Santiago continued to pitch well as he picked up the win after holding the Blue Jays to two runs (one earned) in seven innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: With Tuesday's outing, the lefty has allowed one earned run or fewer in six of eight starts this season. He allowed only four hits and three walks while punching out five. Santiago has a stellar 2.25 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 44/21 K/BB ratio in 48 innings. He'll finish up the Jays' road trip on Sunday against the Red Sox.
    Tuesday, 6:40 pm
  • Matt Stites appears in extended spring
    Matt Stites (elbow) threw a scoreless inning in an extended spring training game on Monday.

    Advice: It's his first game action since he went down with a strained right flexor tendon in spring training. Stites could be looking at a return sometime in June if all goes well.

  • Miguel Cabrera plates lone run in loss Sunday
    Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, plating the Tigers lone run in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Cabrera also drew a walk in the contest. He has been on an absolute tear at the plate in recent weeks and now sports a .333/.436/.601 with 10 homers and 30 RBI. He remains arguably the best right-handed hitter in the game and an offensive force in fantasy leagues.

  • Andrelton Simmons sitting out Sunday
    Andrelton Simmons is not in the Braves' lineup Sunday.

  • Cabrera homers in win over Cardinals
    Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored against the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: It was the 399th home run of his career. Strangely, it was also his first home run in a night game this season. Cabrera has back-to-back three-hit games and owns a healthy .338/.442/.592 battling line on the year to go along with nine home runs and 28 RBI. He'll set his sights on career home run No. 400 this weekend.

  • Altuve swats three-run homer in win
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer in an 8-4 win over the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Advice: Altuve is now up to five home runs on the year, so he's already two shy of his career-high. The 25-year-old is hitting .338/.389/.500 on the year and leads the American League with 13 steals, so he's showing no signs of slowing down from what he did last year. In fact, it's possible he could be even more productive.
    May 15, 8:36 pm
  • Goldschmidt hits double and drives in two
    Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Goldschmidt's two-run double in the top of the seventh inning temporarily put the Diamondbacks up 3-1, but the Snake bullpen would immediately give the advantage back, as the Phillies scored three times in the bottom of the frame. Goldschmidt (.344/.446/.668 with nine homers, 30 RBI and 28 runs scored) is doing all he can to lift an inertia-less Diamondbacks team, but there's no sign that things are going to improve in the near future for his 15-19 squad.
    May 15, 7:17 pm
  • Lagares (shoulder) returns to lineup
    Juan Lagares (shoulder) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Friday in his return to action.

    Advice: Lagares missed three straight games with a slight muscle strain near his right armpit. He has just two hits in his last 29 at-bats and has seen his batting line dip to .267/.292/.328 on the year. He's not stealing bases, so there's little appeal here in mixed fantasy leagues.
    May 15, 6:46 pm
  • Juan Lagares (shoulder) back in Mets' lineup
    Juan Lagares (shoulder) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The outfielder missed the last three games with a slight muscle strain underneath his armpit. Lagares is hitting a mediocre .276/.301/.339 this season but has played his usual stellar defense.
    May 15, 12:23 pm
  • Victorino goes 2-for-3 with a walk and a HR
    Shane Victorino finished 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer in Thursday's 2-1 win against the Mariners.

    Advice: It was his first homer of the year. Victorino had a .143/.302/.171 slash line when he was activated from the disabled list, but he's 3-for-6 with a walk, double and homer in the past two games, giving hope that the veteran can chip in against left-handers this year. The Hawaiian is 90 percent healthy, according to skipper John Farrell.

  • Cabrera smacks two homers and drives in five
    Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI in Thursday's 13-1 crushing of the Twins.

    Advice: It was one of those games for Cabrera. He got things started in the first inning with an RBI single, then unleashed the fireworks midway through the contest when he hit a two-run homer in the sixth off of Brian Duensing and another two-run bomb in the seventh off of J.R. Graham. Cabrera's now hitting .328/.437/.568 with eight home runs, 26 RBI and 20 runs scored.

  • Juan Lagares (shoulder) expected back Friday
    Juan Lagares (shoulder) is expected to return Friday.

    Advice: Lagares has missed three straight games with a slight muscle strain underneath his armpit that he suffered last week on a diving catch. Curtis Granderson is playing center field and John Mayberry is in right field for the Mets on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.
    May 14, 8:46 am
  • Santiago allows only one run, strikes out 8
    Hector Santiago hurled six innings of one-run ball Wednesday and struck out eight in a no-decision against the Rockies.

    Advice: The last time we blurbed Santiago, we suggested he was under-owned in mixed leagues and was, if nothing else, a solid streaming option off your bench. We recommended he be deployed in home matchups like this very one, at home against Colorado, and sure enough he baffled the Rockies. The 27-year-old didn't walk a batter for the first time all season, a good sign for a southpaw whose control can waver. Santiago (2.41 ERA) has a two-start week on deck, but he's a risky play in mixed formats because those outings come in Toronto and Boston.
