  • Park connects for seventh homer versus Astros
    Byung-ho Park hit his seventh home run of the season Tuesday against the Astros.

    Advice: Park continues to assault the pitches he makes contact with, driving a Collin McHugh offering off the second-deck facade in right field -- his opposite field -- in the sixth inning. He also had a strikeout for the ninth consecutive game, giving him 25 punchouts in 22 games to date. That's what you get with Park, and the Twins will live with it if he keeps hitting the ball hard when he does connect. He's hitting .250/.318/.605 overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Carter blasts two homers in defeat of Angels
    Chris Carter homered twice and had three RBI as the Brewers edged the Angels 5-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Carter hit a two-run homer in the third inning and added a solo shot in the fifth. He's now got nine home runs, third-most in the National League, with 21 RBI and 17 runs scored. The power production comes as a shock to no one; the fact that he's hitting .287/.356/.713 while doing it is the real story. That won't last, but the power should, for what it's worth.

  • Lucroy stays hot, hits first homer of season
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: Lucroy hit a two-run homer off Angels starter Nick Tropeano in the fifth inning, his first dinger of the year. He's now put up three straight multi-hit games with a double, triple and a homer in that span. The backstop is hitting .321/.387/.440 in 23 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Abreu's two XBH, three RBI take down Red Sox
    Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and three RBI as the White Sox bested the Red Sox 4-1 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Abreu had an RBI triple, his first triple of the year, in the first inning to get the Sox on the board. He then capped the scoring in the eighth with a two-run double. Abreu has a seven-game hitting streak during which he has six multi-hit games. After an ugly start, his season line is up to .252/.331/.398. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:52 pm
  • Smoak ties it with homer, wins it with homer
    Justin Smoak was the Blue Jays' offense Tuesday versus the Rangers, tying the game in the ninth with a homer and winning it with another homer in the 10th.

    Advice: Not a bad time for your first two longballs of the season. Smoak took closer Shawn Tolleson deep to the opposite field with a solo shot to lead off the bottom of the ninth and then deposited a Phil Klein offering again over the left-field wall with a runner on in the 10th. They were the only three runs of the game for the Blue Jays. Smoak is sporting a nifty .267/.421/.422 batting line on the season and will continue to hold down first base with Chris Colabello suspended. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:35 pm
  • Ramirez blasts second homer against White Sox
    Hanley Ramirez hit a solo home run against the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: The homer was just his second of the season, giving him 16 RBI. He's got a modest eight-game hitting streak in which he's 11-for-34 (.323). That stretch has helped him run his overall line up to .284/.306/.412. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:34 pm
  • Buster Posey notches three hits Tuesday
    Buster Posey went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's victory over the Reds.

    Advice: All three of his hits were doubles. The Giants tallied 10 hits on the night and finally scratched across the go-ahead runs in the eighth inning. Posey has picked up seven hits over his last three games and has pushed his average from .264 to .315 over his last five contests. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:08 pm
  • Howard's solo homer pushes Phils past Cards
    Ryan Howard hit a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Howard finished 1-for-3 in the game, with his sixth-inning blast serving as the only run in the contest. The home run was his sixth of the season, but he's got just 11 RBI for all that power. That's due in part to the fact that power is all he's sporting these days, as he's hitting just .190/.255/.417 with 32 strikeouts overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:08 pm
  • Pearce goes 2-for-4, homers against Dodgers
    Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Drawing a start against lefty Scott Kazmir, Pearce connected for a solo home run in the fifth inning. He's been deployed sparingly this year, playing mostly against southpaws -- he's a career .263/.345/.475 hitter against pitchers of that orientation -- and has been serviceable in that role. After Tuesday's game, the 33-year-old is hitting .283/.365/.435 with two home runs in 46 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:44 pm

  • Trumbo homers twice as O's defeat Yankees
    Mark Trumbo homered twice Tuesday in the Orioles' 4-1 defeat of the Yankees.

    Advice: Trumbo got to Yankees starter Luis Severino for a solo shot in the second inning and a two-run shot in the fifth, finishing the night 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBI. The 30-year-old slugger has been one of the most productive hitters in baseball through the first month of 2016, boasting a .337/.381/.612 slash line, eight home runs, and 22 RBI in 25 games. Some regression is undoubtedly coming, but Camden Yards is a pretty ideal fit for a guy of Trumbo's skillset. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:15 pm

  • Avila (hamstring) close to rehab assignment
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that Alex Avila (hamstring) is close to rehab games.

    Advice: Avila has been on the 15-day disabled list since April 24 because of a right hamstring. It sounds like the catcher could be ready for activation early next week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:31 pm

  • Orioles recall INF Flaherty from Triple-A
    Orioles recalled INF Ryan Flaherty from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured J.J. Hardy (foot) on the active roster. It's unclear how the Orioles intend to play it in their infield with Hardy sidelined, but Flaherty should see some starts. The 29-year-old is a .215 hitter in the majors, but he offers some pop and could be relevant in AL-only leagues if the playing time is there. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:09 pm

  • Santana batting leadoff versus Tigers
    Carlos Santana is back in the leadoff spot for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

    Advice: Santana recently batted leadoff in five out of six games, but he was used out of the cleanup spot during the club's interleague series with the Phillies over the weekend. Jose Ramirez is batting eighth and playing third base Tuesday while Jason Kipnis is batting second. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:30 am
  • Derek Norris goes 0-for-3 against Rockies
    Derek Norris finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts against the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Norris is hitting .145 with 25 strikeouts and just four walks through 83 at-bats. He should rebound and serve as a decent option in two-catcher mixed leagues, but it's been ugly so far. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:18 pm
  • Twins activate Trevor Plouffe from 15-day DL
    Twins activated 3B Trevor Plouffe from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Plouffe, out since April 17 with a right intercostal strain, was cleared to return after playing a pair of minor league rehab games. Eduardo Nunez has swung the bat well while filling in at third base, but he's now likely headed back to a bench role. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:19 pm
  • Ryan Zimmerman doubles twice
    Ryan Zimmerman doubled twice and drove in a run Monday against the Royals.

    Advice: The results haven't been there yet, but Zimmerman ranks among the top five percent of the league in exit velocity, suggesting that things are going to pick up for him. He's at .234/.310/.338 with one homer so far. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:10 pm
  • Matt Adams goes deep in win over Phillies
    Matt Adams singled, ripped a solo homer and scored a pair of runs in Monday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Adams had one of five longballs on the night for the Cardinals, as he joined Kolten Wong, Aledmys Diaz, Randal Grichuk and Adam Wainwright in going deep. He's homered twice in his last four games and is suddenly sporting a nice .280/.345/.500 batting line after his mini hot streak. Adams will continue to fight for playing time at first base with Brandon Moss. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:44 pm

  • Votto homers in loss to Giants on Monday
    Joey Votto launched a three-run homer in Monday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Votto took former teammate Johnny Cueto deep in the middle of a six-run third inning for the Reds before the club watched their horrid bullpen inevitably cough up the lead. It was the first baseman's lone hit on the night in four trips to the plate, but he'll take it given his struggles so far this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:00 pm
  • Lucas Duda smacks fifth home run
    Lucas Duda slugged his fifth home run of the season in Monday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Duda's solo blast in the first inning followed David Wright's solo shot and Yoenis Cespedes' two-run blast. He also had a walk on the night. Duda has just a .256 average and .300 on-base percentage so far, but he's provided power with a .476 slugging percentage and five bombs. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:53 pm
  • Plouffe (intercostal) to be activated Tuesday
    Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) is set to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Plouffe, who went down with a right intercostal strain in mid-April, went 1-for-8 over two minor league rehab games with High-A Fort Myers. He was batting .302 (13-for-43) with two homers and an .868 OPS over 12 games prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:26 pm
  • Ryan Flaherty expected to join O's on Tues.
    Ryan Flaherty is expected to return to the Orioles' active roster on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flaherty was just optioned to Norfolk a week ago, but the O's need him again to provide infield depth while J.J. Hardy recovers from a fracture in his foot. Paul Janish will also be worked into the mix once he returns from the Triple-A paternity leave list. Manny Machado could be the everyday guy at short. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:15 pm

  • Daniel Nava to begin rehab assignment Monday
    Daniel Nava (knee) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Class-A Inland Empire on Monday.

    Advice: Nava is only expected to need a couple of games to get his timing back before he's deemed ready to rejoin the Angels. His return could force Rafael Ortega back to Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:41 pm

  • Eric Hosmer goes deep as Royals top Mariners
    Eric Hosmer smashed his fourth home run of the season on Sunday, leading the Royals to a 4-1 victory over the Mariners in Seattle.

    Advice: Hosmer's blast off Vidal Nuno capped off the game's scoring in the eighth inning. He also singled in the ballgame, finishing the day 2-for-4. He has been mighty impressive through the first month of the 2016 campaign, slashing .333/.374/.538 with four long balls and nine RBI. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:27 pm
  • Carter flashes power with a pair of homers
    Chris Carter was locked in during Sunday's 14-5 obliteration of the Marlins, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of homers, three RBI and three runs scored.

    Advice: Not only did Carter homer twice, he also hit his 10th double of the season. The streaky slugger went yard with a two-run shot in the third inning and followed that up with a solo dinger just an inning later. After being non-tendered by the Astros over the winter, Carter is slashing a silly .278/.355/.671 with seven homers and 18 RBI for the Brew Crew. Fantasy owners should luxuriate in this hot stretch, because winter is coming. It always does with Carter. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:30 pm
  • John Jaso plays almost-hero versus Reds
    John Jaso hit a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning of Sunday's 6-5, 11-inning loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Jaso's solo homer off reliever Ross Ohlendorf came with two outs in the ninth inning and tied the proceedings at 5-all. Alas for the Pirate faithful, that would be the last run to score for the home team. Jaso has now homered in two straight games -- his first two homers of the season, at that. While he is slashing a tidy .306/.375/.471 across 85 at-bats, there is little in his history that would indicate that such a batting line will hold up over the course of the season.

  • Scott Van Slyke (back) likely out until June
    Scott Van Slyke (back) is not expected to return before June.

    Advice: Van Slyke has been out for three weeks with a lower back injury and still hasn't been cleared to resume baseball activities. The 29-year-old has been a weapon for the Dodgers against left-handed pitching the last few seasons, so his absence for what looks like will be at least a couple months is notable.

  • Ryan Zimmerman sitting out on Sunday
    Ryan Zimmerman is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Clint Robinson is filling in at first base for the Nats. Michael Taylor is also getting a breather, as Matt den Dekker is in center field and in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:10 am
  • Jonathan Lucroy not in Sunday's lineup
    Jonathan Lucroy is absent from the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Martin Maldonado is doing the catching. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:38 am
  • Justin Smoak not in Sunday's lineup
    Justin Smoak is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: The Jays have Edwin Encarnacion at first base, Jose Bautista in the designated hitter spot and Ezequiel Carrera in right field. Smoak hit just .189/.375/.216 in April. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:04 am
  • Myers doubles twice in win over Dodgers
    Wil Myers enjoyed a big day at the plate in Saturday's win over the Dodgers, going 2-for-3 with two doubles, two walks, an RBI and a stolen base.

    Advice: Many hoped that a permanent defensive home at first base would allow his hitting talent to finally shine through. After Saturday's banner performance, he's now batting .302/.343/.510 with five doubles, five homers and three stolen bases. His .375 BABIP suggests some regression is in the future; however, he owns a career .322 BABIP, which means any expected drop-off may not be as steep as we'd otherwise assume. He has been a top-five fantasy first baseman and finally appears to be fulfilling his top-prospect pedigree at 25 years old. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:58 pm

  • Moreland homers in win over the Angels
    Mitch Moreland capped off a six-run third inning with a three-run blast in Saturday's 7-2 victory over the Angels.

    Advice: Moreland got a 90-mph cookie up in the zone from Matt Shoemaker, who had absolutely nothing left in the tank by the time the Rangers' first baseman stepped into the box. He's now hitting .257/.313/.459 with three homers and 11 RBI in 80 plate appearances. That's almost identical to his career numbers, too, so don't expect too much more from the 30-year-old slugger this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:02 pm
  • Abreu knocks in game-winner, Sox outlast O's
    Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with two RBI, including the game-winner in the ninth, as the White Sox outlasted the Orioles 8-7 on Saturday.

    Advice: Abreu had an RBI single in the eighth to help the Sox stage a comeback, and it was his two-out RBI hit in the ninth that gave them the win. Abreu's sluggish start had some concerned, but the first baseman has multi-hit games in four of his last five contests to raise his average to .229. The power is still notably absent -- he's hit just three homers, and none since April 19 -- but there's no reason for alarm just yet, especially in light of the recent improvements. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:40 pm
  • Jaso hits first homer of season versus Reds
    John Jaso hit his first home run of the season Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: Jaso attacked the first pitch of the game from Reds starter Alfredo Simon, ripping it out to right center to give the Bucs an early lead. It may have been his first home run of the year, but Jaso has been a catalyst atop the Pirates' lineup from the outset. The first baseman is hitting .316/.389/.456 with seven RBI and 10 runs scored through Saturday's game. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:38 pm

    Advice: It's good timing for the Angels with Craig Gentry battling back stiffness.

  • Byung-ho Park clubs sixth home run in loss
    Byung-ho Park clubbed his sixth home run of the season on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Tigers.

    Advice: Park's fourth inning blast off of Jordan Zimmermann wound up being the club's only offense in the contest. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 with a strikeout and is now hitting .227/.288/.561 with a team-leading six homers and eight RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:05 pm
  • Adams homers, knocks in three runs vs. Nats
    Matt Adams went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Friday’s loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Adams did most of the heavy lifting for the Cardinals’ offense on Friday, with an RBI single in the first inning and a two-run blast in the eighth inning. Despite his best efforts, St. Louis ended up falling one run short. Adams has mostly struggled in sporadic playing time this season, batting .238/.289/.429 over 22 games. He’s no longer on the radar in mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:14 pm

  • Byung-ho Park goes hitless in loss to Tigers
    Byung-ho Park had a rough day at the plate in Friday's loss to the Tigers, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

    Advice: It has been a struggle at the dish in the early going for the Korean import, slashing just .226/.290/.532 with five homers, seven RBI and a 21/5 K/BB ratio in 69 plate appearances. The power appears to be legit, but he'll need to make more consistent contact in order to be a real factor in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:23 pm
  • Howard launches walk-off homer vs. Indians
    Ryan Howard socked a walk-off solo homer in a 4-3 win over the Indians in 11 innings on Friday

    Advice: The clubs were locked in a 3-3 tie after five innings and Howard finally broke through when he took Cody Allen deep to lead off the bottom of the 11th. It was his sixth career walk-off homer and his first since 2013. Howard went 3-for-5 with two runs scored on the night, boosting his batting average from .185 to .214. The Phillies have now won seven out of eight and sit at a surprising 13-10 on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:58 pm
  • Carlos Santana could play RF this weekend
    Indians manager Terry Francona said that he's considering using Carlos Santana in right field this weekend in Philadelphia with the designated hitter spot not available.

    Advice: Santana is out of the lineup on Friday, but he could give right field a shot on Saturday and/or Sunday. The 30-year-old did play the outfield a little bit in the minors but hasn't started a game there since 2008 when he was in A-ball. It could be an adventure. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:36 pm
  • Bochy plans to rest Posey more this season
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that he plans to rest Buster Posey more this season.

    Advice: "The plan really all year with Buster, probably, is to give him a few more breaks than what I’ve given in the past," Bochy said. Posey set career highs in games played and plate appearances last season, although he started 37 games at first base. He's been at first just twice so far this season and it sounds like he'll see more full days off rather than play first when he's not catching. While Posey's fantasy owners might not like him playing fewer games, it could be good for his production in the long run if it helps keep him fresher. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:30 am
  • Hanley has three hits, two RBI against Braves
    Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI against the Braves on Thursday.

    Advice: Ramirez had an RBI single in the first before cracking a run-scoring double in the third. He's driven in a run in four straight games and six of his last seven, giving him 13 RBI overall. After a disappointing first year in his new digs, the 32-year-old is batting .287/.304/.402 as the Red Sox' primary first baseman this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:14 pm
  • Trumbo could play first base this weekend
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that Mark Trumbo could play some first base during the team's series against the White Sox this weekend.

    Advice: Trumbo has made the bulk of his starts this season in right field, though he has also seen time at DH and left field. He has actually started more games at first base than any other position during his career, but Chris Davis has been the primary option there so far this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:51 pm

  • Eric Hosmer homers, doubles
    Eric Hosmer went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and a double versus the Angels on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hosmer's two were the Royals' only extra-base hits of the night. He's been off to a great start, with a .333 average and three homers among his nine extra-base hits, but since Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain have done a poor job of getting on base, he has just eight RBI.

  • Plouffe (intercostal) set for rehab assign.
    Trevor Plouffe (intercostal) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Fort Myers this weekend.

    Advice: Plouffe was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain in mid-April.

  • Wil Myers cracks three-run homer in loss
    Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Myers connected for a three-run homer off Giants reliever Steven Okert in the seventh to draw the Padres to within 13-8. That score would stand as the final. The homer was Myers' fifth of April. He comes away from the game slashing a healthy .303/.333/.506 in 89 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:13 pm

  • Moreland has two hits, two RBI against Yanks
    Mitch Moreland went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Moreland pitched in a two-run single in the Rangers' five-run third inning against Yankees starter Luis Severino. The output matched Moreland's production from the previous five games, as he'd been 2-for-16 without an RBI or a run scored over that span. The 30-year-old is hitting .239/.301/.418 overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:45 pm
  • Trumbo delivers Orioles' lone RBI in loss
    Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: The run batted in gave Trumbo 17 RBI on the season, third-most in the American League. The two-hit game also extended his hitting streak to 11 games. In all, the 30-year-old has hit safely in 17 of 19 games to compile a .373/.405/.613 line on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:12 pm

    Advice: He's been sidelined with lower back tightness since April 12. Van Slyke has been working to strengthen his core muscles but there's no indication he's close to resuming baseball activities. The Dodgers' outfield has been plagued by injuries all year, though Carl Crawford's return Tuesday should provide a nice boost. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:11 am

    Hanley Ramirez is sitting Monday in Atlanta.

    Advice: Travis Shaw will start at first base and Josh Rutledge will start at third versus Braves right-hander Julio Teheran. It's just a day of routine rest for Hanley, who has appeared in each of Boston's first 18 games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:56 pm
  • Blue Jays, Cardinals could talk trade?
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi suspects the Blue Jays and Cardinals could become trade partners.

    Advice: Toronto lost first baseman Chris Colabello to a PED suspension on Friday and the Cardinals have two first basemen in Matt Adams and Brandon Moss. Adams has struggled this season and had a rough 2015, but he does carry more years of control than Moss and he'd probably do well in a place where he could get starts at DH. Moss, a free agent this winter, has four home runs and 10 RBI in 18 games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:57 am

    Advice: As a team, the Reds had just three singles. One by Votto, one by Eugenio Suarez and one by Tucker Barnhart. And that, as they say, is all she wrote. The 32-year-old Votto has struggled through the first three weeks of the 2016 season and is hitting just .206/.295/.309 with two homers and nine RBI across 68 at-bats. His is a dependable bat, though, and there is no tangible reason owners should worry over a garden variety slump. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 1:29 pm
