    Avisail Garcia (knee) is back in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Garcia hasn't played since Thursday due to inflammation in his right knee, but he apparently feels well enough to give it a go in this one. The 23-year-old is hitting a nifty .319/.359/.451 with four homers this season.

  • 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
  • Mike Morin (oblique) placed on DL
    Angels placed RHP Mike Morin on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

    Advice: Morin suffered the injury during Saturday's loss to the Red Sox. There's no timetable for his return, but it's an ailment that usually require more than a minimum stay on the DL.
    Today, 8:05 am
    15-Day DL
  • 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.
    Today, 7:57 am
  • Jose Altuve getting some rest Sunday
    Jose Altuve is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

  • Pablo Sandoval (knee) out again on Sunday
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Sandoval has been limited to just one pinch-hitting appearance since being hit on the left knee by a pitch Tuesday. He'll be available off the bench again Sunday but obviously isn't feeling well enough to return to the lineup just yet. Brock Holt is handling third base again Sunday.
    Today, 7:12 am
  • 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.

  • Arcia (hip) has to hit his way back on club
    Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony indicated Saturday that Oswaldo Arcia's (hip) rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester might not be brief.

    Advice: Arcia, who has missed 17 games with a right hip flexor strain, will begin the assignment with Rochester on Sunday. "He needs to go down and show he’s ready to come up and help the club," Antony said. "We’ve gotten away from go down, get a couple of at-bats and come back up. All of a sudden the guy is 0-for-12 and not helping the team. A, we need to know that he’s healthy, and B, he needs to look like he’s ready to help us." Arcia was starting to show signs of turning it around at the plate before the injury. Ultimately, he should be back with the Twins pretty soon.

  • Bolsinger holds Padres to one hit over eight
    Mike Bolsinger delivered eight shutout innings Saturday in the Dodgers' 2-0 win over the Padres.

    Advice: Bolsinger was absolutely terrific, yielding only one hit while striking out eight against a plenty-good Padres lineup. He did not walk a batter. The 27-year-old has posted tremendous numbers this season between Triple-A Oklahoma City and Los Angeles, and he's worth a shot in mixed fantasy leagues while the fire is lit. Some regression is probably coming. A road date with the Cardinals is next.
    Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Mike Morin diagnosed with oblique strain
    Mike Morin has been diagnosed with an oblique strain.

    Advice: Which likely means the right-hander will be placed on the disabled list. Morin suffered the oblique strain Saturday night in a rehab appearance at Fenway Park.
    Yesterday, 6:51 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Morin leaves Saturday's game with injury
    Mike Morin left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Morin only threw six pitches before exiting. It's possible he was dealing with cramps. Vinnie Pestano entered the game in his place. Opponents have hit just .228 against Morin despite his mediocre ERA (6.00 in 15 innings).

  • Howard launches 10th homer in rout of Nats
    Ryan Howard launched his 10th home run of the season Saturday in the Phillies' 8-1 rout of the Nationals.

    Advice: He singled in the second, hit an RBI double in the third, and then slugged a ball 410 feet over the center-field fence in the fifth as the Phillies stunned Stephen Strasburg at Nationals Park. Howard's sudden resurgence at age 35 is one of the more intriguing storylines of the first half. He has an .865 OPS through 41 games.
    Yesterday, 3:51 pm
  • Yasmani Grandal (concussion) placed on DL
    Dodgers placed C Yasmani Grandal on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Grandal suffered the injury Friday when Padres first baseman Yangervis Solarte hit him with his backswing. The Dodgers think he'll be back to normal soon but understandably wanted to be cautious. We'd expect A.J. Ellis to do most of the catching in his absence, though Austin Barnes could see time there as well. Barnes was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday.

  • Pablo Sandoval remains out of Red Sox lineup
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) remains out of the Red Sox lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Sandoval is still available off the bench as a pinch-hitter, though his left knee is too sore to man the hot corner defensively. Brock Holt is getting another start in his place and will bat eighth against opposing left-hander C.J. Wilson.
    Yesterday, 12:48 pm
  • Avisail Garcia remains out of ChiSox lineup
    Avisail Garcia (knee) remains out of the White Sox lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Friday that Garcia could miss a couple of games, and admitted Saturday that he wanted to give him an extra day as a precautionary measure. J.B. Shuck is once again getting the start in his absence.
    Yesterday, 10:44 am
  • Yasmani Grandal day-to-day for now
    The Dodgers aren't sure whether Yasmani Grandal suffered a concussion Friday, but he won't play Saturday.

    Advice: It's possible Grandal will end up on the seven-day concussion DL, but that remains to be seen. A.J. Ellis will catch Saturday.

  • Avisail Garcia (knee) could miss a few games
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Friday that Avisail Garcia's knee injury could cause him to miss a couple of games.

    Advice: The inflammation in his right knee has been an ongoing issue for Garcia, and it looks like it could cost him another couple of games this weekend. J.B. Shuck got the start in his place on Friday and could be in line for additional playing time while Garcia is sidelined.
    Friday, 8:36 pm
  • Souza homers, steals base vs. Athletics
    Steven Souza smacked a solo homer and stole a base against the Athletics on Friday.

    Advice: Souza also drew a walk and scored twice. The 26-year-old is hitting just .229 on the year and has struck out in 38 percent of his plate appearances, but he's remained useful in fantasy leagues with seven home runs and seven stolen bases.
    Friday, 8:28 pm
  • Grandal departs after being hit by backswing
    Yasmani Grandal was forced to leave Friday's game against the Padres after being hit in the head by Yangervis Solarte's backswing.

    Advice: Grandal attempted to remain in the game but had to be replaced by A.J. Ellis to start the fifth inning. He's likely to be evaluated for a possible concussion. Consider him day-to-day.

  • Avisail Garcia scratched with knee issue
    Avisail Garcia was scratched from the White Sox starting lineup on Friday due to inflammation in his right knee.

    Advice: The knee has been a constant issue for Garcia in recent weeks and has caused him to miss several games along the way. J.B. Shuck will start in his place on Friday and bat seventh against Phil Hughes and the Twins.
    Friday, 3:54 pm
  • Arcia (hip) beginning rehab assignment Sunday
    Oswaldo Arcia (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.

    Advice: He shouldn't need more than a few games before being activated. Arcia is still feeling some discomfort in his right hip when he throws, so he's likely slated for designated hitter duty initially upon his activation from the disabled list.

  • Pablo Sandoval (knee) out again on Friday
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Sandoval remains available to pinch hit, but his left knee remains too sore when making throws. He hopes to return to the lineup at some point this weekend. Brock Holt is at third base Friday.
    Friday, 1:29 pm
  • Steven Souza strikes out four times
    Steven Souza Jr. struck out all four times he was up Thursday against the A's.

    Advice: Souza has followed up his 30-strikeout April by racking up 32 with 10 days left to go in May. The Rays keep batting him second anyway, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see that change soon. On the plus side, he is still drawing walks and hitting the ball hard when he does make contact.
    Thursday, 7:38 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval appears as pinch-hitter
    Pablo Sandoval struck out as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's game against the Rangers.

    Advice: Sandoval didn't start because of a bruised knee, but he's expected to be ready to play third on Friday.
    Thursday, 7:04 pm
  • Ryan Howard slugs ninth home run in loss
    Ryan Howard launched a solo homer Thursday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Howard sure enjoyed his visit to Colorado, as he collected six hits (including two home runs and a double) in 17 at-bats over the four games. After getting off to a slow start, the veteran first baseman now has nine home runs on the year to go along with an .828 OPS. Only Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton have hit more home runs since April 21. Quite an unexpected turnaround for "The Big Piece."
    Thursday, 3:39 pm
  • Sandoval (knee) out of Red Sox lineup Thurs.
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) is out of the Red Sox starting lineup again on Thursday night.

    Advice: Pablo Sandoval left Tuesday's game after being hit on the left knee by a pitch and he did not make an appearance Wednesday. He still has some bruising around that knee. Brock Holt will start at third base for the Red Sox on Thursday against Rangers lefty Wandy Rodriguez.
    Thursday, 12:03 pm
  • Grandal not in Dodgers' lineup on Thursday
    Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: A.J. Ellis will catch Clayton Kershaw and bat eighth against Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner.

  • Pablo Sandoval (knee) sitting out Wednesday
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Sandoval had to exit Tuesday's contest after being hit on the left knee with a pitch. Tests came back negative, but he's no doubt still sore. Consider Sandoval day-to-day. Brock Holt is filling in at third base.
    Wednesday, 12:08 pm
  • Souza has two hits, stolen base vs. Braves
    Steven Souza went 2-for-4 with an RBI, run scored and stolen base against the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Souza put his skills on display in the game, showing why he was such a popular target in drafts before the season. The outfielder stole his sixth base of the season while collecting his 16th RBI. Souza is hitting .231/.331/.410 with six homers and 18 runs scored on the season.
    Tuesday, 7:30 pm
  • Tests on Pablo Sandoval's knee are negative
    Tests on Pablo Sandoval's left knee came back negative.

    Advice: Sandoval left Tuesday's game against the Rangers after being hit on the knee by a pitch, but he's expected to be fine. Kung Fu Panda singled in one of his three at-bats before exiting. Consider him day-to-day.
    Tuesday, 7:20 pm
  • Oswaldo Arcia (hip) nearing rehab assignment
    Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said Tuesday that Oswaldo Arcia (hip) is close to beginning a rehab assignment.

    Advice: Arcia resumed hitting in a batting cage last Friday and evidently things have progressed nicely since then. He has noted that his hip is more of an issue when he throws, so he could be pegged for designated hitter duty at least initially when he returns from the disabled list.

  • Avisail Garcia (knee) back in lineup Tuesday
    Avisail Garcia (knee) is in the White Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Indians.

    Advice: Garcia was forced from Monday's game with inflammation in his right knee. It's something that has been lingering, but it's clearly only a minor issue. Garcia, 23, is batting .338/.376/.481 with four home runs and 17 RBI in 34 games this season for the Pale Hose.
    Tuesday, 1:07 pm
  • Garcia departs game with minor knee issue
    Avisail Garcia had to leave Monday's game versus the Indians due to a knee injury.

    Advice: It actually flared up on him over the weekend but evidently wasn't enough of an issue until he had to be pinch-ran for in the 10th inning Monday. White Sox manager Robin Ventura said the club was just being cautious, so it sounds like Garcia could be back in there Tuesday.
    Monday, 8:01 pm
  • Garcia smacks two-run homer in ninth inning
    Avisail Garcia went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Athletics.

    Advice: Garcia's two-run homer off of Tyler Clippard in the ninth inning helped to give the White Sox a little bit of a cushion, increasing their lead from 5-3 to 7-3. They would win by that final score. The homer was Garcia's fourth of the season and pushed his RBI count to 17. If he continues to hit for power, he could really start to put together the fantasy upside that made him a sleeper in the off-season. To this point, he's hitting .346/.380/.492.
    May 17, 4:26 pm
  • Grandal's single drives in only run in win
    Yasmani Grandal's run-scoring single in the fourth inning would be the only run scored in a 1-0 Dodger win over the Rockies on Sunday.

    Advice: Grandal finished the game 1-for-2 with a walk. The two-out RBI single off of Kyle Kendrick gave Grandal 17 RBI for the season. He's also hit four homers and scored 17 runs. The catcher's been in a groove offensively and has a season-slash of .301/.421/.484 while helping to lead the 24-13 Dodgers.

  • Bolsinger pitches six innings of shutout ball
    Mike Bolsinger gave up just three hits over six innings without allowing a run to the Rockies on Sunday.

    Advice: Bolsinger struck out six and walked two in a 1-0 win. He threw 85 pitches during his time on the mound. This was Bolsinger's second start since being called up on May 12 and he should continue to see run in the Dodger rotation as they work their way through some injuries. In 17 1/3 innings this season, Bolsinger's allowed two runs on 13 hits, with a 14/6 K/BB ratio. The numbers have been nice and he's a decent stop-gap option in NL-only leagues, though we'd still caution against putting too much faith in him for mixed league play. Bolsinger will try to keep up his strong run when he takes on the rival Padres at home in his next start.
    May 17, 3:54 pm
  • Ryan Howard sitting out on Sunday
    Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Darun Ruf is at first base in Howard's place.
    May 17, 8:10 am
  • Pablo Sandoval continues to struggle vs. LHP
    Pablo Sandoval went 0-for-3 against J.A. Happ on Friday to fall to 2-for-37 against left-handers this season.

    Advice: Sandoval has killed righties, but he's looked positively helpless batting right-handed. Considering that he was bad last year, too, it's about time he considers joining the club, which already boasts Shane Victorino and Daniel Nava as members, and giving up switch-hitting. The Red Sox don't really have an alternative for him against lefties; Sandoval's backup, Brock Holt, is a left-handed hitter.
    May 15, 9:50 pm
  • 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
  • Howard smacks RBI double in win
    Ryan Howard went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Howard hit his run-scoring double in the sixth inning after Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson hit Freddy Galvis and walked Grady Sizemore. One run scored on the play, giving Howard 17 RBI for the season. In addition to the double, Howard also struck out once. He started out the season about as poorly as a hitter can start out a season, but the numbers have stabilized over the last month and he's now hitting .231/.291/.479. The average is unlikely to rise much higher, but at least the power is showing itself here and there.
    May 15, 7:29 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
  • Izturis (groin) ready for rehab assignment
    Maicer Izturis (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Dunedin on Monday.

    Advice: Izturis' recovery from a right groin strain has taken a long time, as he suffered the ailment nearly two months ago. He's finally ready for game action again, though, and should be ready for activation from the disabled list in early June when eligible.

  • Oswaldo Arcia (hip) hits in batting cage
    Oswaldo Arcia (hip) resumed hitting in a batting cage on Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's done any hitting since being placed on the disabled list on May 4 with right hip flexor strain. Arcia didn't feel any pain while swinging a bat, but he said his hip still bothers him a bit when he throws. There hasn't been a timetable set for his return.

  • 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
  • Pablo Sandoval not in Red Sox lineup
    Pablo Sandoval is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Brock Holt is getting the start in his place at the hot corner. Sandoval should be back at his post on Friday.
    May 14, 3:43 pm
  • Howard records three hits, homers in win
    Ryan Howard went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Pirates.

    Advice: This was just Howard's sixth multi-hit game in 2015. He smacked the solo home run off of Radhames Liz in the fifth inning. With the dinger, the former All-Star now has seven homers and 16 RBI. Howard won't hit for average, but he's seen a decent jump in slugging this season and his .230/.293/.478 slash line is an improvement over a lost 2014 campaign.
    May 14, 12:53 pm
  • 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.
