    Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: Jay hasn't played since he was hit in the wrist area with a pitch last Sunday and a stint on the disabled list remains a possibility. Travis Jankowski will start in center field again and bat leadoff Saturday. Rotoworld.com 40 minutes ago

  • Yanks designate Ike Davis for assignment
    Yankees designated 1B Ike Davis for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Mark Teixeira's return from the disabled list. Davis went 3-for-14 (.214) with an RBI during his brief stint with the Yankees. He told reporters that he'll consider staying with the organization if he passes through waivers unclaimed. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago

  • Jennings out for first game of doubleheader
    Desmond Jennings is not in the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jaff Decker will make the start in center field instead. Taylor Motter will play right field and Corey Dickerson is in left. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:06 am
  • Cain (hamstring) throws bullpen session
    Matt Cain (hamstring) threw about 20 pitches off the bullpen mound on Friday.

    Advice: Cain will do the same thing on Sunday before the Giants determine the next step. If the club wants to play it safe, he could throw on the side or pitch batting practice, but he could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. There should be more clarity on his status soon. The veteran right-hander has been sidelined since June 13 with a strained right hamstring. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:07 am

  • Tomlinson (thumb) not close to returning
    Kelby Tomlinson (thumb) is about a week to 10 days away from a minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Tomlinson landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a sprained left thumb and Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he still needs time for recovery and strengthening before ramping up baseball activity. His return now appears likely to fall around the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:04 am

  • Rays option Geltz to Triple-A
    Rays optioned RHP Steve Geltz to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for newly-acquired outfielder Oswaldo Arcia. Geltz gave up his 10th homer of the season on Friday against the Indians and owns an ugly 6.75 ERA over 20 innings on the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:58 am

  • Romo (elbow) not ready to join Giants
    Sergio Romo (elbow) could make his next minor league rehab appearance on Saturday or Sunday.

    Advice: There was some talk of Romo rejoining the Giants this weekend, but he gave up two runs on three hits over one-third of an inning during his most recent rehab appearance on Thursday. The Giants want to see better results before bringing him back. Romo has been sidelined since April 10 with a strained flexor tendon. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:25 am

  • Perez activated from paternity leave
    Brewers activated INF Hernan Perez from the paternity leave list.

  • Carrera (Achillies) returns to lineup Friday
    Ezequiel Carrera (Achillies) went 1-for-5 with a single and a strikeout in his return to the lineup Friday versus the White Sox.

    Advice: Carrera sat out Wednesday's game because of a sore Achilles, but he was back in the leadoff spot Friday night. He should continue to see plenty of playing time with Jose Bautista (toe) sidelined. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:25 am
  • Diamondbacks option Godley to Triple-A
    Diamondbacks optioned RHP Zack Godley to Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks intend to add a fresh arm to their bullpen on Saturday. Godley allowed two runs on three hits and a walk over an inning of work on Friday and owns a 4.35 ERA in five appearances with Arizona this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:17 am

  • Zach Eflin sharp versus Giants
    Zach Eflin pitched six innings and allowed just an unearned run Friday in a no-decision against the Giants.

    Advice: Eflin left with a 2-1 lead, but it vanished almost immediately in the seventh. Still, this was a second straight nice outing for him after he gave up eight earned runs in 2 2/3 innings in his major league debut 10 days ago. He remains a weak bet outside of deep NL-only leagues, but he won't embarrass himself. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • Angel Pagan goes 3-for-4, knocks in two
    Angel Pagan went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a steal versus the Phillies on Friday.

    Advice: Pagan is hitting .297 with a homer and nine RBI in nine games since coming off the disabled list. He'll continue to get as much playing time as his body can handle while Hunter Pence is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:03 pm
  • Yasmany Tomas homers twice in win
    Yasmany Tomas drove in four runs with a pair of homers to held the Diamondbacks beat the Rockies 10-9 on Friday.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks won despite being just the second team in history to use nine pitchers in a nine-inning game that took place prior to the Sept. 1 roster expansion. Tomas finally came up big with multiple men on base; he had never homered and rarely gotten a hit of any kind with two or three bases occupied. The first homer tonight was a three-run shot, and he tied up the game in the ninth with a solo blast. The Diamondbacks went on to take their 10-9 lead when Michael Bourn drove in Jean Segura. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Martinez gives up four runs in six innings
    Nick Martinez was charged with four runs in six innings and took a no-decision versus the Red Sox on Friday.

    Advice: Martinez gave up six hits, two of which landed on the far side of the outfield wall. Making his second start of the year, he struck out only two batters while walking three. He has a 5.54 ERA and is striking out only 3.46 batters per nine innings. Martinez is nothing more than a replacement-level pitcher who is only in the majors because the Rangers' rotation has been devastated by injury. He is best avoided in fantasy unless you play in a very deep AL-only league. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Upton's mammoth game leads Pads over Reds
    Melvin Upton crushed two home runs to lead the Padres to a 13-4 whipping of the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: He finished the day 3-for-5 with four RBI and scored two runs. He now has 11 home runs on the season. Upton was one of the worst hitters in the league his two years in Atlanta but has been pretty good since moving to San Diego last year. His owners could benefit from a 20 homer, 30 steal season from Upton if he continues his current pace. He has stolen 16 bases this year and has stolen 40 or more three times in his career -- most recently in 2010 however. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) out again Friday
    Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) is out of the Padres' lineup again Friday versus the Reds.

    Advice: Jay was hit by a pitch last Sunday and is still dealing with some swelling. He will see a hand specialist upon returning to San Diego next week and the Padres haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:09 pm

  • Cain (hamstring) won't return when eligible
    Matt Cain (hamstring) won't return from the disabled list when first eligible next Wednesday.

    Advice: Cain's right hamstring strain is improving, but the Giants want him to make at least one rehab start this time after he skipped one following the initial injury. That means Albert Suarez will make at least one more start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:28 am
    15-Day DL

  • Upton has two hits, stolen base against Reds
    Melvin Upton went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored Thursday against the Reds.

    Advice: The stolen base was the 16th in 20 tries for Upton this season. He's now got six multi-hit games in his last 10 contests, batting .375 with two homers, five RBI and nine runs scored in that stretch. The 31-year-old is experiencing a mini career resurgence with the Padres this year, batting .257/.308/.404 with those 16 steals and nine homers overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:52 pm
  • Sergio Romo (elbow) could be activated soon
    Sergio Romo (elbow) could be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: Romo tossed a scoreless inning for Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday and will pitch again Thursday night. After that, the Giants will decide whether to activate him or have Romo make another rehab appearance. Romo has been sidelined for the last two months with a strained flexor tendon.

  • Jon Jay (forearm) out again Thursday vs. CIN
    Jon Jay (forearm) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Jay hasn't appeared in a game for the Padres since suffering a bruised right forearm last Sunday. He's still considered day-to-day. Travis Jankowski will bat leadoff and start in center field Thursday versus the Reds. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:29 pm

  • Ezequiel Carrera out because of sore heel
    Ezequiel Carrera is out Wednesday because of a sore Achilles.

    Advice: Darrell Ceciliani will start in right field and bat ninth versus Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray. Carrera is considered day-to-day. He's been filling in as Toronto's primary right fielder with Jose Bautista on the disabled list because of turf toe. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:40 am
  • Carrera out of Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday
    Ezequiel Carrera is out of the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Carrera is serving as the Jays' primary right fielder with Jose Bautista battling turf toe, but Darrell Ceciliani gets the nod Wednesday versus Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray. Ceciliani is hitting ninth. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:00 am
  • Yasmany Tomas goes deep to beat Blue Jays
    Yasmany Tomas clubbed a two-run homer in the fourth inning on Tuesday, propelling the Diamondbacks to a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Tomas turned around a fastball from Marco Estrada, sending it deep into the seats in left field, increasing the Diamondbacks' advantage to 3-0 in the fourth inning. With his 1-for-4 effort on Tuesday, Tomas is now hitting .257/.309/.454 with 10 long balls and 25 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:15 pm
  • Jon Jay sitting Tuesday with bruised forearm
    Jon Jay is out of the Padres' lineup Tuesday after bruising his right forearm Sunday.

    Advice: He'll be reevaluated on Wednesday, per Padres manager Andy Green. Jay has been a nice little surprise for San Diego this season, slashing .296/.345/.407 with an NL-leading 24 doubles in 68 games. He'll make for a nice trade chip next month if he can stay healthy.

  • Brewers place Perez on paternity leave
    Brewers placed INF Hernan Perez on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Perez can remain on the paternity leave list for 24-72 hours. Yadiel Rivera will take his place on the Brewers' bench. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:42 am

  • Melvin Upton scores twice as Padres roll
    Melvin Upton went 2-for-4 and scored a pair of runs as the Padres rolled over the Nationals 6-3 in Sunday's series finale.

    Advice: Upton continues his resurgent season at the dish with another fine effort on Sunday. The elder Upton is now hitting .255/.308/.409 with nine homers, 32 RBI and 15 stolen bases on the season. He has been one of the biggest surprises in the first half of the MLB season and a true difference maker in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:04 pm
  • Eflin allows two runs in loss to D'Backs
    Zach Eflin allowed two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Eflin looked much sharper than he did in his MLB debut Tuesday against the Blue Jays, but he got only one run of support on Sunday and fell to 0-2 in two major league starts. The young right-hander struck out three Arizona hitters while yielding only one walk and four total hits. He'll try to build off those results on his next turn against the Giants at AT&T Park. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:38 pm
  • Martinez allows three runs in spot start
    Nick Martinez allowed three runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in a start against the Cardinals on Saturday.

    Advice: It's unclear whether the start will be his last for a while or whether the Rangers will keep him in the rotation for the foreseeable future for lack of better options. He has a 5.14 ERA in seven innings with the big club and owned a 4.50 ERA in 11 starts at Triple-A, so either way, Martinez isn't a name worth knowing for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:33 pm
  • Jon Jay goes 3-for-5, doubles twice
    Jon Jay finished 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles Friday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Jay is first in the NL and third in the majors with 24 doubles. He might be a nice little trade piece for the Padres next month, especially since there never seem to be enough leadoff hitters to go around. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:21 pm

  • Tomas smacks two solo homers vs. Phils
    Yasmany Tomas connected for a pair of solo homers Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: The second homer reached the second deck. It was his second career multi-homer game. He also hit two homers against the Padres back on April 17. Tomas is now up to nine homers through 58 games this season, which matches his total from 118 games last season. Still, he has slowed down significantly since his hot start to the season and regular playing time is no longer a sure thing. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:34 pm
  • Sergio Romo (elbow) resumes rehab Friday
    Sergio Romo (elbow) will resume his minor league rehab assignment with an inning of work at Single-A San Jose on Friday.

    Advice: Romo had battled almost all the way back from his elbow issue last month when he suffered a setback. It's unclear what role that he'll have upon his eventual return as Hunter Strickland seems to have settled in nicely in the eighth inning role. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:43 pm

  • Nick Martinez will start on Saturday
    Nick Martinez will start on Saturday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: He's getting the call over Cesar Ramos, who will head back to the Rangers' bullpen. Martinez carries a 4.50 ERA in 11 starts for Round Rock this year and can be ignored for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:09 pm
  • Steve Geltz recalled from Triple-A
    Rays recalled RHP Steve Geltz from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Geltz holds a 6.06 ERA over 17 relief appearances in the majors this season. He'll be used in low-leverage situations. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:30 pm

  • Melvin Upton cracks solo homer in win
    Melvin Upton went 3-for-3 with a double, a solo home run and two total RBI in Wednesday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Upton struck for a solo homer against Marlins starter Justin Nicolino with one out in the second inning. The dinger was his ninth of the season and he is now slashing .246/.301/.411. He has stolen 13 bases and driven in an even 30 runs across 236 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:42 pm
  • Jennings (quad) goes 0-for-3 in return Tues.
    Desmond Jennings (quad) finished 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Jennings made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Astros after experiencing tightness in his quad, but he said after the game that he felt fine and the 29-year-old outfielder was able to play all nine innings of Tuesday night's series opener versus Seattle. The real problem is he's batting just .185/.264/.315 this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:49 am
