  • Canha walks A's off with double in 10th
    Mark Canha hit a walk-off double to propel the A's to a 2-1 win over the Indians on Sunday.

    Advice: Canha had not recorded a hit entering the 10th inning, but his two-out double off of Indians reliever Cody Allen scored Sam Fuld from first to give the A's a low-scoring win. Canha's hitting .229/.292/.381 with eight homers and 35 RBI in 236 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:11 pm

  • Royals sign Paul Clemens to minor league deal
    Royals signed RHP Paul Clemens to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The 27-year-old right-hander had been cut loose by the Phillies after registering a 6.00 ERA and 1.96 WHIP over 24 innings at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He's nothing more than organizational depth for the Royals. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:50 pm

  • Joe Panik frustrated over back stiffness
    Joe Panik admitted after Sunday's game that his nagging back stiffness is not improving and that he's growing frustrated.

    Advice: Panik will see the trainers again on Monday, but it's starting to sound as though he may need a trip to the disabled list. Ehire Adrianza has been filling in during his absence, and would continue to do so should Panik get forced to the DL. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:12 pm
  • Cabrera manages RBI single in loss to Yankees
    Melky Cabrera went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: The Melk Man hit his RBI single off of Yankees starter Ivan Nova in the sixth inning. Unfortunately for the White Sox, the Bombers held a 9-0 lead at the time of Cabrera's base knock. Needless to say, the Yankees won the game. Cabrera's been swinging a hot bat of late and has worked his overall batting line up to .287/.326/.403 with seven homers and 53 RBI.

  • Richard excels in spot start duty against MIL
    Making a spot start against the Brewers on Sunday, Clayton Richard fired six innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Richard is only up for this start, as the Cubs needed a warm body in the rotation as they await the arrival of the recently acquired Dan Haren. He made the most of the opportunity, with the only run against him scoring on a Hernan Perez RBI ground out in the second inning. A return to Triple-A Iowa is imminent, but Richard could see additional spot duty depending on the future state of the Cub rotation. He holds a 4.29 ERA in 21 innings at the big league level this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:41 pm
  • Teheran's seven strong innings leads to a win
    Julio Teheran pitched seven innings of two-run ball on Sunday against the Phillies, earning his first win in five starts.

    Advice: Teheran allowed an RBI single to Cody Asche in the second inning and another RBI single to Odubel Herrera in the fifth, accounting for the damage. He scattered eight hits, walked none, and struck out seven in what was his finest outing since his last win on July 3 -- also against the Phillies. Teheran now has a 4.59 ERA, a 1.39 WHIP, and a 113/49 k/BB ratio over 131 1/3 innings. He gets another good match-up this weekend, as he'll host the struggling Marlins. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:24 pm
  • Henry Owens to start for Red Sox on Tuesday
    Red Sox manager John Farell announced Sunday that Henry Owens will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to start against the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Advice: It will be the major league debut for the 23-year-old right-hander, who is regarded by many to be the top pitching prospect in the Red Sox organization. He owns a 3.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 103/56 K/BB ratio over 122 1/3 innings at Pawtucket this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:22 pm

  • Norris dazzles vs. Orioles in Tigers debut
    Daniel Norris, making his Tigers debut, allowed a lone run to the Orioles in 7 1/3 innings on Sunday.

    Advice: Norris, a highly-regarded pitching prospect, was acquired from the Blue Jays in the David Price trade. The lefty held the O's to four hits and a walk while striking out five. Norris had mixed results in five starts in April for the Jays, but owns a 3.23 ERA on the year with a 1.30 WHIP and a 23/13 K/BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep it going in a home start against the Red Sox next. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:13 pm
  • Miley pitches into seventh in strong start
    Wade Miley put together a nice start in earning a no-decision against the Rays on Sunday, tossing 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball.

    Advice: Miley's strong start comes on the heels of a seven-run debacle versus the White Sox. Against the Rays on Sunday, he bounced back nicely and scattered five hits while striking out four and walking one over 6 2/3 innings. Brandon Guyer burned him for a solo home run in the first inning and James Loney notched an RBI double in the fourth, but the 28-year-old southpaw otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. Miley's quietly allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts and holds a 4.55 ERA and 1.39 WHIP overall. He'll take to the road to face the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.

  • 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 Today, 1:41 pm
  • Joe Panik sitting out again with stiff back
    Joe Panik is not in Sunday's lineup due to nagging back stiffness.

    Advice: Panik played the last two days after missing two games with a stiff back, but now he's on the bench again. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that the infielder should be available off the bench, but he doesn't expect to start him for a few days. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Sunday. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:53 am
  • Yasiel Puig not in Sunday's lineup
    Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a day off. Andre Ethier has shifted over to right field in Puig's place, while Carl Crawford is getting a start in left. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:51 am

    Twins transferred RHP Ryan Pressly from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Tyler Duffey. Pressly not won't be eligible to return from his lat injury until early September. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:49 am

  • Clayton Richard recalled from Triple-A
    Cubs recalled LHP Clayton Richard from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: He'll make a spot start Sunday before Dan Haren joins the rotation later this week. Richard holds a 5.40 ERA over 15 innings with the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:13 am
  • Ausmus plans to go with Alex Wilson at closer
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Saturday that he'll "probably" use Alex Wilson as his closer.

    Advice: Wilson notched his first career save on Thursday when he recorded the final five outs of the game and it appears that he's Ausmus' top option for the ninth inning following the trade of Joakim Soria. "I'll probably use Wilson at the back end, maybe (Blaine) Hardy at the back end if there are lefties," Ausmus said. "(Neftali) Feliz and (Bruce) Rondon hopefully can stretch through the seventh and eighth somehow." Wilson boasts a 1.79 ERA on the season, although he's struck out just 33 over 55 1/3 innings. He doesn't have typical closer stuff but obviously needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:10 am
  • Pearce (oblique) hopes to swing bat soon
    Steve Pearce (oblique) hopes to throw and swing a bat this week.

    Advice: Pearce to this point has been limited to rest and treatment since straining his left oblique two weeks ago, but he said he was finally pain-free on Saturday. He might need a couple rehab games but doesn't appear too far off from a return if he can avoid a setback. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:22 am

  • Buster Posey goes 3-for-5, homers
    Buster Posey went 3-for-5 with a homer and a double against the Rangers on Saturday.

    Advice: Posey never had a homer as a DH coming into 2015, but now he has two in three starts there. He's hitting .328 with 15 homers overall, and he's struck out just 33 times in 351 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:15 pm
  • Melky Cabrera homers in Saturday's win
    Melky Cabrera paced the White Sox with three hits Saturday in a win over the Yankees.

    Advice: He went 2-for-3 with a single and a three-run homer. The veteran has hit safely in 13 of his last 15 games, raising his batting average 26 points over that span. Cabrera has appeared in all but one game for the White Sox this season with 114 hits. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:55 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 Yesterday, 3:49 pm
  • Clayton Richard to pitch Sunday vs. Brewers
    Clayton Richard will start Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    Advice: Richard won't be in the majors long as the Cubs are likely to option him back to Triple-A Iowa when Dan Haren joins the rotation sometime next week. Richard is 1-0 in three appearances for the Cubs this year with a disappointing 5.40 ERA. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:30 pm
  • Joe Panik (back) returns to Giants' lineup
    Joe Panik (back) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Panik missed a couple games with a stiff back. He returns to a .309/.375/.440 batting line. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:28 pm
  • Braves not expected to trade Julio Teheran
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Julio Teheran's name is "not out there now" in trade talks.

    Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports last week that the Braves were "quite open" to the idea of dealing Teheran, but they've apparently pulled him off the market. It would be an odd time to trade him, anyway, since he's having a disappointing season and Atlanta might not be able to get what he's worth. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:32 am
  • Alex Wilson gets five-out save
    Alex Wilson got five outs for his first save Thursday in the Tigers' 9-8 win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Wilson had just two holds all year, so he was never seen as a setup man in front of Joakim Soria. Nevertheless, he was Brad Ausmus's choice to close tonight. He likely would have started the ninth had everything gone as planned, but after Al Alburquerque allowed two of the first three batters to reach in the eighth, Ausmus decided to go to Wilson right then. Wilson allowed one of the inherited runners to score, but finished the Orioles off from there. He might be the favorite for saves in the Tigers pen, at least until he blows one. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:33 pm
  • Daniel Norris to make Tigers debut on Sunday
    Daniel Norris will make his Tigers debut on Sunday afternoon against the Orioles.

    Advice: Norris was acquired from the Blue Jays on Thursday in the four-player David Price trade. He is a very well-regarded young pitching prospect and should do well with the move from Rogers Centre to Comerica Park (though his debut Sunday will be at Camden Yards). Give the 22-year-old a boost in stock in mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:24 pm
  • Tigers get Norris, two others for David Price
    Tigers acquired LHPs Daniel Norris, Jairo Labourt, and Matt Boyd from the Blue Jays for LHP David Price.

    Advice: Norris hasn't shown a whole lot yet at the major league level, but the 22-year-old left-hander entered the 2015 season as one of the top pitching prospects in baseball and the Tigers get six years of him for 2-3 months of Price. Labourt and Boyd also carry considerable upside. It's a nice haul for the retooling Detroit front office. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:43 am
  • Puig's big night helps Dodgers ambush A's
    Yasiel Puig went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 10-7 come-from-behind triumph over the A's.

    Advice: The homer off Jessie Chavez was his seventh of the season. For Puig, the big game could not have come at a better time, as his name is currently being batted around the rumor mill. He's having a down year, slashing .254/.326/.433, but it'd be a surprise to see LA's sharp brass sell low on a world-class talent under team control cheaply through 2019. We'll see.

  • Buster Posey getting a breather Wednesday
    Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off with it being a day game after a night game. Hector Sanchez is catching in Posey's place. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:28 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
  • Cabrera has four-hit night against Red Sox
    Melky Cabrera continued to hit the cover off the ball Tuesday, finishing 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Cabrera has been the hottest hitter in baseball since the All-Star break, going 21-for-52 (.404) with multi-hit games in each of his last six contests. On Thursday, three of his four hits went for extra bases, as he doubled twice and tripled in the win. Cabrera's torrid stretch has his line up to .281/.319/.392 after a brutal first half. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:28 pm
  • Miley hit early and often against White Sox
    Wade Miley struggled from the outset Tuesday, allowing seven runs on 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Miley spotted the White Sox a five-run lead but managed to keep them off the board until giving up two more runs in the sixth. Miley also walked three while striking out five in the poor start. The start was actually a departure from Miley's previous two starts, as he'd allowed just one run over his previous two starts spanning 13 innings. Miley will carry an 8-9 record, 4.65 ERA and 1.42 WHIP into Sunday's contest against the Rays. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:15 pm

  • Teheran terrorized by Davis in loss to Braves
    Julio Teheran served up five runs in four innings en route to a loss on Tuesday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Chris Davis did all of the damage, unloading for a three-run home run in the first inning and a two-run shot in the second. The right-hander allowed five hits and walked four while striking out four in the abbreviated outing. Though Teheran had pitched much better in July, his numbers are still quite poor as he stands with a 4.71 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a 106/49 K/BB ratio over 124 1/3 innings. He'll attempt to rebound when he makes a road start against the Phillies next. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:12 pm
  • Joe Panik getting a day off Tuesday
    Joe Panik is not in the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Ehire Adrianza is at second base in Panik's place. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:38 pm
  • Yasiel Puig is 'available in the right deal'
    USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Dodgers "have let teams know that Yasiel Puig is available in the right deal."

    Advice: However, he also adds that "teams are showing much more interest in their prospects." That's not altogether surprising, given that the Dodgers have one of the better farm systems in the game and have elite prospects like Corey Seager and Julio Urias. Puig is having a disappointing season with a .253/.327/.423 batting line and just six homers, but he's just 24 and is under team control cheaply through 2019. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has reported previously that the Dodgers have told Puig he will not be traded. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:56 pm

  • Steve Pearce (oblique) yet to resume activity
    Steve Pearce (oblique) remains limited to rest and treatment.

    Advice: Pearce is eligible to return from his left oblique strain in a week, but he's not going to be ready at that point. "If you test it and you're wrong, you set yourself back another two weeks," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Rotoworld.com Jul 27, 5:07 pm

  • Dodgers reassure Puig that he won't be traded
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Dodgers reassured Yasiel Puig on Friday that he will not be traded.

    Advice: Puig has been an increasingly popular name in trade rumblings in recent days, so much so that Puig asked the Dodgers brass about the rumors. The organization assured him that they are not interested in moving him. While things are constantly changing around the trade deadline, don't expect the dynamic young outfielder to be donning a new jersey come August 1. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 6:51 am

  • Cabrera has two-run double vs. Indians
    Melky Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a run scored in Friday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Cabrera got off to an awful start this season, but he's now batting .340 over his last 27 games. That's closer to what the White Sox had in mind when they gave him a three-year, $42 million contract over the winter. The 30-year-old has raised his batting average from .236 to .265 since June 20. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 7:27 pm
  • Puig slugs two-run homer vs. Mets
    Yasiel Puig launched a two-run homer Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: It was his second home run in his last four days. The Dodgers will have to hope that it's a sign of things to come for Puig, who has produced an underwhelming .259/.335/.434 batting line on the year thus far. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 7:02 pm

  • 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
  • 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
  • Clayton Richard optioned to Triple-A
    Cubs optioned LHP Clayton Richard to Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Richard had to be designated for assignment earlier this week given his major league service time, but he had an option left so the Cubs are now using it after he cleared waivers. He'll stick around as depth. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 5:49 am
  • Wade Miley holds Astros to one run
    Wade Miley pitched around five walks to allow one run in six innings Thursday against the Astros.

    Advice: The lone run came on Marwin Gonzalez's first-inning homer. It was a second straight fine outing for Miley, though he really does need to cut down on the walks. He's issued 44 in 114 1/3 innings this year, and he's just too hittable to get away with that. Rotoworld.com Jul 23, 8:54 pm

  • Melky Cabrera homers twice in victory
    Melky Cabrera hit his fifth and sixth homers of the year Thursday in the win over the Indians.

    Advice: Melky is hitting .313 with four homers in July. He should be a perfectly capable mixed-league outfielder the rest of the way, though it would help if the rest of the White Sox lineup were performing better. Rotoworld.com Jul 23, 7:06 pm
  • Braves may be willing to deal Julio Teheran
    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Braves may be willing to trade right-hander Julio Teheran.

    Advice: Two rival executives that Rosenthal spoke to indicated that the Braves were "quite open" to the idea. The 24-year-old hurler is in the second year of a six-year, $32.4 million deal and would certainly require a premium haul if he is to be pried away. Rotoworld.com Jul 23, 6:27 pm
  • Mets not promoting Michael Conforto on Thurs.
    According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, there are no plans to promote Michael Conforto on Thursday.

    Advice: There has been speculation all week that Conforto is on the verge of joining the Mets, but it would be pretty cruel to promote the left-handed-hitting 22-year-old on Thursday and make him debut against Clayton Kershaw. Conforto, the 10th overall pick in the 2014 MLB Amateur Draft, should get the nod soon enough. He's batting .301/.377/.489 with 12 home runs and 54 RBI in 90 games this season between High-A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton. Rotoworld.com Jul 23, 6:09 am
