  • Pedroia doubles, powers Red Sox victory
    Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in the Red Sox 4-3 win over the Yankees on Friday.

    Advice: Pedroia hit a ground rule double in the third to knock in Brock Holt after Holt tripled, then smacked an RBI single in the seventh to drive in rookie Mookie Betts. It was a nice game for Pedroia, who could use a lot more like this. This season, he's hitting .278/.343/.374. The average and OBP are fine, but it's clear that Pedroia has lost a bit of his laser show power as injuries and the inevitable march of time have worn on him.

  • Robinson Cano scores lone run in loss to O's
    Robinson Cano reached base three times on Friday and scored the Mariners lone run in a loss to the Orioles

    Advice: Cano finished the night 2-for-3 and also drew a walk, raising his season slash to an impressive .331/.392/.454. His power numbers have been down though in his first season with the Mariners, with just seven homers and 59 RBI on the season.

    Scooter Gennett (finger) is considered day-to-day with a contusion of his left index finger.

  • Bonifacio playing right field in Braves debut
    Emilio Bonifacio is making his Braves debut on Friday, playing right field and hitting eighth against the Padres.

    Advice: Bonifacio is likely to be used as a super-utility type, seeing work all over the diamond while finding his way into the lineup on a fairly regular basis. His speed continues to make him a strong fantasy option.

    Cubs purchased the contract of INF Chris Valaika from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: He'll take the place of Felix Doubront on the active roster, who was placed on the disabled list on Friday. The utility infielder was hitting .278/.344/.423 with 10 homers and 50 RBI over 102 games at Iowa. He'll function in a reserve role for the Cubs.

  • Santana homers in a losing effort vs. Royals
    Danny Santana led off Thursday's game with a home run and later walked, but the Twins fell to the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: Santana greeted Royals starter Ervin Santana coldly, taking him out to right field to begin the ballgame. The outfielder has been productive at the plate since rejoining the team to begin the second half, having hit six extra-base hits in his last 53 plate appearances. Overall, he's slashing .313/.347/.467 with four home runs, 22 RBI, and six stolen bases.

  • Kipnis homers, knocks in two but Tribe loses
    Jason Kipnis went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run, but the Indians lost by one run to the Mariners on Thursday.

    Advice: The Indians hung a three-spot on the Mariners in the third, but Kipnis answered back with a two-run homer in the bottom half of the inning, part of the Indians' own three-spot. Kipnis has been slumping at the plate and recently acknowledged that his right oblique muscle is still bothering him. He's slashing .243/.322/.356 with six home runs, 36 RBI, and 15 stolen bases.

  • Ackley homers as Mariners hang on to a win
    Dustin Ackley walked and hit a two-run home run in five trips to the plate as the Mariners narrowly edged out the Indians on Thursday.

    Advice: The All-Star break seems to have reinvigorated Ackley, as he has been on a tear in the 13 games since. He took Zach McAllister deep for a two-run blast in the third inning, only the fifth time Ackley has gone yard this season. The outfielder has a .253/.301/.375 with 36 RBI on the season.

    Advice: Tejada was inked to a minor league deal in May but played in only four games for Double-A Jacksonville before going down with a right shoulder injury. He was close to returning, but the Marlins decided to go ahead and cut the 40-year-old loose. Tejada remains unlikely to play in a major league game again.

  • Brian Dozier sitting out with jammed thumb
    Brian Dozier is not in Thursday's lineup due to a swollen left thumb.

    Advice: Dozier jammed the thumb while sliding into third base during Wednesday's game. The good news is that he planned to take batting practice before Thursday's contest and be available off the bench, so he should return to the lineup over the weekend. Eduardo Escobar is at second base Thursday.

  • Rays gamble on Seattle INF Franklin
    Rays acquired SS Nick Franklin in a three-team trade that sent LHP David Price to the Tigers.

    Advice: Tampa Bay immediately optioned Franklin to Triple-A. It seems as though Tampa Bay is viewing Franklin as Ben Zobrist 2.0, so it's a little disappointing they couldn't move Ben Zobrist 1.0 today to open a spot in the lineup. The talented 23-year-old raced through the minor leagues -- his time at Low-A Clinton was even chronicled in the 2013 book Class A -- but fell out of favor in Seattle by slashing a rough .214/.291/.358 over 119 games the past two seasons. The former top prospect has destroyed, and continues to destroy, minor league pitching, so this is an interesting gamble by Andrew Friedman.

  • Braves acquire Bonifacio from Cubs
    Braves acquired INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio and LHP James Russell from the Cubs for C Victor Caratini.

    Advice: Bonifacio has boosted his trade value since returning from the disabled list and owns a .279/.318/.373 batting line over 69 games this season to go along with 19 extra-base hits, 14 stolen bases, and 35 runs scored. It's not immediately clear how the Braves plan to use him, but he could push B.J. Upton to the bench at least some of the time.

    Jurickson Profar (shoulder) won't play this season, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Jeff Wilson.

  • Boston takes Kelly Johnson for Stephen Drew
    Red Sox acquired INF/OF Kelly Johnson from the Yankees for SS Stephen Drew.

    Advice: Johnson was a popular fantasy sleeper in the spring, but unfortunately he kept dozing after Opening Day. He ended up hitting just .219 with a .304 OBP and six home runs in 77 games for the Yankees. Currently on the disabled list with a strained left groin, Boston won't rush him back. Slotted behind Brock Holt and Dustin Pedroia in the infield, and Shane Victorino and Allen Craig in the outfield, the tank of Johnson's 2014 fantasy value has run dry.

    Advice: The Cubs will receive catching prospect Victor Caratini in the deal. Bonifacio will be a jack-of-all-trades for the Braves, filling in at second base some and in the outfield. Russell gives them the left-hander reliever that they've been looking for.

  • Report: Zobrist to stay put in Tampa Bay
    The "sense" is that Ben Zobrist will not be traded before Thursday's deadline, the New York Post's Joel Sherman reports.

    Advice: Tampa Bay is furiously working the phones to consummate a David Price deal, and taking Zobrist off the table with 30 minutes to go until the deadline should simplify the process for them a bit. Since we have nothing else to add, here's some trivia to stump your friends at the bar tonight: Zobrist was acquired from the Astros back in 2006 along with Mitch Talbot for Aubrey Huff. His price tag has gone up in the interim.

    Advice: Sizemore had an underwhelming .272/.332/.424 batting line in 268 plate appearances at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. But the 29-year-old infielder should be able to find a new minor league contract rather quickly.

  • Athletics DFA UTIL Elmore to open 40-man spot
    Athletics designated INF/OF Jake Elmore for assignment.

    Advice: It's likely Elmore didn't realize, while looking at the Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes for Yoenis Cespedes trade, that his 40-man spot was needed to accommodate the extra big leaguer. Elmore was claimed off waivers by the White Sox from the Astros over the winter, and then dealt to Oakland for cash, so it's possible a team looking for a young utility player will place a claim.

  • Mets 'highly doubtful' to trade Daniel Murphy
    According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Mets are "highly doubtful to move" Daniel Murphy.

    Advice: There has been interest -- most notably from the Nationals -- but Murphy is under contractual control through the 2015 season and so the Mets would have to be overwhelmed by an offer to pull the trigger on a deal. Murphy, 29, is hitting .295/.341/.423 with eight home runs and 11 stolen bases in 105 games this season.

  • Gyorko goes 3-for-5 with double, homer, 4 RBI
    Jedd Gyorko finished 3-for-5 with a double, solo homer, four RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 12-1 thrashing of St. Louis.

    Advice: Ladies and gentleman, we've officially received signs of life from the 25-year-old second baseman. Gyorko hit just .162/.213/.270 in 221 plate appearances before missing close to two months with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Since his activation on Monday, he's gone 6-for-11 (.545). Gyorko is owned in only 33-percent of Yahoo leagues, a number that isn't high enough. Based on the offensive chops he showed as a rookie -- including a .249/.301 /.444 slash line and 23 homers, which earned a five-year, $35 million contract extension -- it's not out of the question that the former top prospect could thrive over the next few months.

  • Solarte continues to mash, smacks 4 singles
    Yangervis Solarte went 4-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 12-1 romp over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Solarte had homered in two out of his last three games. He's now tallied an extra-base hit in four of eight games since coming over to the Padres from the Yankees along with Rafael De Paula for Chase Headley. Solarte has slashed .364/.410/.606 during that period. He's a must-start in NL-only formats at the moment, but it's likely you can find better options in your mixed league on the waiver wire.

    The Giants are likely to release second baseman Dan Uggla in the coming days.

    Advice: A report surfaced Wednesday that the team had already parted ways with the struggling infielder, but Uggla remains a member of the Giants for now. He likely won't be for too much longer, though, as sources have indicated to the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman that Uggla will be cut loose soon.

    The Nationals have had internal discussions about Daniel Murphy and Asdrubal Cabrera but no deal appears close, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

    Advice: The Nats are in need of an infielder with Ryan Zimmerman out for most of the rest of the regular season, and both Murphy and Cabrera would allow Anthony Rendon to remain at third base while pushing Danny Espinosa back to a bench role. Murphy would be a nice upgrade but would be tough to do within the same division, while Cabrera is a free agent after the season.

It's a nice development for the infielder, who was believed to still be a few weeks away from returning.

It still could happen, but right now there doesn't seem to be a ton of fire there. Bonifacio and his .279/.318/.373 line remain likely to be moved before Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline.

    Advice: Both clubs are looking for help against left-handed pitching, and Bonifacio is sporting an OPS over 1.000 from the right side of the plate this season. He's being paid $3.5 million this year and will be a free agent this winter and shouldn't cost a whole lot.

    Yangervis Solarte homered, walked and scored two runs on Tuesday in a 3-1 win against the Cardinals.

The infielder is off to a sizzling start on the West Coast, recording an RBI in six of his first seven games as a Padre. Solarte isn't likely to make anybody forget Chase Headley, but he is slashing .286/.353/.571 over his short tenure with the Padres.

    Brian Dozier went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Dozier also doubled in the game, breaking an 0-for-15 slump. The most disappointing thing about his July slide is his lack of walks -- after walking 52 times through the season's first three months, Dozier has a 1/21 BB/K ratio in July. The drought has him at .233/.328/.422, and owners who sold high on him are patting themselves on the back right now.

The 23-year-old reached on a bunt single in the third inning and scored the game's first run, and he doubled and scored in the fifth. Santana has 26 runs scored in 47 games this season, and he's scored seven in his last seven games as he rounds into form following a DL stint for a knee bone bruise.

The 26-year-old has been red-hot since returning from the break, as he holds a .444 average (20-for-45) in 11 games since.

  • Dan Uggla goes hitless in loss to Dodgers
    Dan Uggla had a rough night in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts, and also making a critical error that led to an unearned run.

    Advice: Uggla also drew a walk in the ballgame. He's now hitting an unfathomable .152/.234/.217 on the season and is closer to being released than he is to being fantasy relevant once again.

  • Solarte hits first Padres homer vs. Braves
    Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-5 with his first home run as a member of the Padres in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Solarte has enjoyed a revitalization since being dealt to the Padres, going 7-for-21 (.333) with Sunday's homer, five RBI and five runs scored. The infielder is hitting .260/.341/.396 overall. He'll continue to get everyday playing time for the next two months and is a decent option in NL-only leagues.

  • Jedd Gyorko to be activated from DL on Monday
    Jedd Gyorko (plantar fasciitis) will be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

    Advice: He has completed a minor league rehab stint with Triple-A El Paso and deemed ready to return. Before hitting the shelf in early June, he had hit just .162/.213/.270 with five homers and 24 RBI in his first 56 games.

  • Gennett pinch hits in loss to Mets on Sunday
    Scooter Gennett popped out in a pinch-hit appearance in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Gennett hadn't seen game action since Tuesday, when he left with right quad tightness. The pinch-hit appearance is a good sign for Gennett, who is expected to return to the lineup on Monday. The second baseman is hitting .304/.342/.480 in what's been a breakout campaign.

  • Murphy doubles, scores in win over Brewers
    Daniel Murphy went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in the Mets' win over the Brewers on Sunday.

    Advice: Murphy has been locked in at the plate in recent days, going 7-for-12 in his last three games. The hit parade has raised his overall line to .293/.340/.412. With seven home runs and 11 stolen bases, Murphy has a decent shot at his second straight double-double season.

  • Pedroia has two hits, stolen base in victory
    Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Pedroia singled and came around to score on David Ortiz' home run in the third inning. The stolen base was just his third of the season, as his speed has been largely a non-factor this year. He's 6-for-15 in his last four games to run his overall line to .274/.341/.368.

  • Santana triples, drives in two against Sox
    Danny Santana tripled and drove in two runs in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Batting leadoff for the third straight game, Santana delivered an RBI triple in the third inning and added a sacrifice fly in the seventh. The triple was Santana's second of the season. The 23-year-old is hitting .315/.348/.458 and, now healthy, should be a nice player in mixed leagues from here on out.

  • Gennett (quad) expected back on Monday
    Scooter Gennett (quad) is expected to return to the Brewers' lineup on Monday.

    Advice: Gennett is missing his fifth straight game Sunday with a tight right quad, but he made it through running drills before the game with no issues. Rickie Weeks is getting another start at second base Sunday, but expect to see Gennett out there on Monday against the Rays.

  • Scooter Gennett (quad) out again Sunday
    Scooter Gennett (quad) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's the fifth straight game he's missed with a tight right quad. There's been no indication to this point that a disabled list stint might be required, so consider Gennett day-to-day. Rickie Weeks is getting another start at second base Sunday.

  • Dan Uggla goes hitless in loss
    Dan Uggla went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and committed an error at second base Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Uggla isn't making a great first impression with the Giants. However, it's not like anyone else on the team had any luck against Clayton Kershaw tonight. Uggla will probably be back in the lineup against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu on Saturday.
