  • Hamilton to begin rehab assignment next week
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock next week.

    Advice: It had been reported previously that he'd begin the assignment later this week, but the Rangers are pushing it back a few days. Hamilton has played in extended spring training games the last couple days and is expected back before the end of May.

  • Werth has 'cranky' shoulder; will return Fri.
    Jayson Werth is out of the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday due to what Nationals manager Matt Williams referred to as a "cranky" right shoulder.

    Advice: Williams and the Nats are viewing it as part of the normal recovery process after Werth's offseason shoulder surgery. The good news is that the outfielder will be available off the bench Wednesday and return to the lineup Friday. The bad news, of course, is that he's hitting just .176/.247/.203 and has an achy shoulder.
    Today, 8:41 am
  • Jayson Werth getting another day off
    Jayson Werth is absent from the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's his second day off in a row, but Werth isn't injured. Rather, the Nats are just giving the struggling outfielder an extended break. Michael Taylor is in left field Wednesday.
    Today, 7:33 am
  • Chase Headley sat out with back issue
    Chase Headley wasn't in Tuesday's lineup due to a sore back.

    Advice: The Yankees think maybe he's a little sore after diving on Toronto's artificial turf Monday. There's no concern, though, as Headley is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday.
    Today, 6:55 am
  • Jose Pirela (concussion) to be activated Wed.
    Jose Pirela (concussion) will be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

    Advice: Pirela has been over his concussion issues for a while, but the Yankees wanted to get him a good number of rehab at-bats (33). He's expected to take Gregorio Petit's roster spot.

  • Mark Teixeira dealing with lat issue
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi revealed Tuesday that Mark Teixeira's absence from Monday's lineup was due to a minor left lat muscle issue.

    Advice: It's something that's been bothering Teixeira for a few days. He returned to the lineup on Tuesday, though, and belted his 10th home run of the season. As long as the ailment doesn't get worse, it appears Teixeira will continue to play through it. "You deal with bumps and bruises all year," Teixeira said Tuesday. "Joe thought it was a good day for me to take off (Monday) and let it rest. It feels a little better today. The day off helped."
    Today, 6:51 am
  • Adam Eaton returns to action Tuesday
    Adam Eaton doubled and scored a run in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Eaton missed the previous three contests while battling the flu. He's hitting a disappointing .195/.241/.268 this season.
    Today, 6:27 am
  • Cesar Puello moved to 60-day DL
    Mets transferred OF Cesar Puello from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Johnny Monell. Puello remains sidelined with a stress fracture in his back.
    Today, 5:36 am

  • Paxton tosses 7 solid innings in no-decision
    James Paxton held the Angels to two runs over seven innings in a no-decision as the Mariners were handed a 5-4 walk-off loss by the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Paxton was quite strong, unarguably pitching his best game of the season. His only mistake occurred in the first inning when Albert Pujols took him deep for a two-run home run. Overall, the lefty gave up four hits and three walks while striking out four. Paxton mostly sat around 93 MPH with his fastball, but maxed out at 97 MPH. He lowered his ERA to 5.08 and sports a 1.34 WHIP with a 30/11 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings. The Padres await him in a home start next.
    Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Rosenthal earns ninth save in win over Cubs
    Trevor Rosenthal earned his ninth save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Rosenthal got a couple quick ground ball outs before Starlin Castro singled to add some intrigue. Rosenthal got Junior Lake swinging, though, to end any potential threat. It was a nice rebound for Rosenthal after he sustained his first blown save of the season his last time out. The right-hander owns a strong 1.32 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 17/6 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings this year.
    Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Pujols hits 5th homer as Angels top Mariners
    Albert Pujols went 2-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Pujols gave the Angels an early 2-0 lead when he drove a James Paxton offering to left-center in the first inning. It's the 525th homer of Pujols' career. He's 18th on the all-time home run leaderboard, nine shy of tying Jimmie Foxx at 534. The first baseman is batting .239/.314/.435 with five home runs and 12 RBI on the season.
    Yesterday, 9:57 pm
  • Crawford reaches base 4 times in a Giants win
    Brandon Crawford reached base all four times he came to the plate, helping the Giants seal a 6-0 win against the Padres on Tuesday.

    Advice: Crawford singled twice, doubled, and walked on the evening. He scored after walking in the second, and scored again in the third following an RBI single. Crawford is now batting a highly productive .262/.374/.512 with five home runs and 15 RBI, emerging as one of the Giants' key contributors through the season's first month and change.
    Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Panik provides Giants insurance with a homer
    Joe Panik went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Giants emerge victorious over the Padres on Tuesday.

    Advice: Panik belted a solo home run to right field in the fifth inning off of Andrew Cashner, pushing the Giants' lead to 6-0, the score by which they would eventually win. It's the second long ball of the season for Panik, who has driven in nine runs and is hitting .292/.350/.438. Panik is hitting nearly as well as he did last year in terms of average and has shown more power, which the Giants are certainly happy to see.
    Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Cashner falls to 1-5, allows six runs to SFG
    Andrew Cashner suffered his fifth loss of the season after yielding six runs (four earned) in six innings against the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Six of the seven hits Cashner allowed were singles, but he walked three and was hurt by a pair of errors in the third inning as well. He struck out three in the outing. Interestingly, the right-hander has allowed 23 runs on the season, but only 13 of them are earned runs. He has a 3.16 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 39/11 K/BB ratio in 37 innings. Cashner will close out a road series in Arizona against the Diamondbacks next.
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Rollins hits third homer in win over Brewers
    Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run homer and scored twice in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Rollins made his one hit count, taking Neal Cotts out for his third homer of the season. Hits have been scarce for the veteran, as he's batting just .168/.254/.317 through 26 games. Still, he's got 11 RBI and 12 runs scored in a potent Dodgers offense.
    Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Butler has two hits, RBI in win over Twins
    Billy Butler went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Butler broke out of a slump with the two-hit night, as he'd had just three hits in his previous 40 at-bats coming into the game. The RBI single in the first inning gave Butler 13 RBI on the season to go with a .267/.325/.400 line on the year.
    Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Teixeira blasts 10th homer to help Yanks win
    Mark Teixeira went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run to help lead the Yankees past the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Teixeira pushed the Yankees' lead to 5-0 in the fifth inning when he drove a Marco Estrada offering over the fence in right-center. The first baseman hasn't hit more than 24 home runs in a season since 2011 and capped out at 22 last season, but he's already up to 10 this year. Along with that, he's hitting .205/.324/.602 with 22 RBI.
    Yesterday, 7:39 pm
  • Werth out of lineup against Marlins
    Jayson Werth is out of the Nationals' lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Just your typical off-day here for Werth. The outfielder underwent shoulder surgery in January and the Nationals make sure to spell him from time to time. Werth is hitting just .176/.247/.203 in 74 at-bats this season. Michael Taylor will get the start in his place.
    Yesterday, 12:38 pm
  • Mark Teixeira sitting out Monday
    Mark Teixeira is not in the Yankees' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It appears to just be a day of rest. Garrett Jones is at first base in Teixeira's place.
    Monday, 1:31 pm
  • Josh Hamilton (shoulder) hitless in four ABs
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder) went hitless in four at-bats Monday in an extended spring training game.

    Advice: Hamilton hit three grounders to first base and then struck out in his fourth and final plate appearance of the afternoon. He played three innings in left field. The veteran slugger is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment later this week and should join the Rangers' active roster by the end of May.

  • Rosenthal blows first save but Cardinals win
    Trevor Rosenthal blew his first save of the season Sunday in the Cardinals' 14-inning win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Rosenthal entered in the top of the ninth inning with the Cardinals leading 1-0 and promptly gave up a game-tying solo blast to Jung Ho Kang. It was the Korean shortstop's first major league homer. Rosenthal kept the damage at one run and the Cardinals won it in the bottom of the 14th. He still owns an impressive 1.42 ERA in 12 2/3 innings this season and should remain a top-tier fantasy closer all summer on another good St. Louis team.
    Sunday, 3:48 pm
  • Hamilton set for rehab assignment this week
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock later this week.

    Advice: Hamilton's surgically-repaired shoulder is no longer an issue, but he's being worked back into playing shape. He's been training at the Rangers' spring training complex and faced live pitching Saturday for the first time. The big club expects Hamilton to join them towards the end of the month.
    Sunday, 9:09 am
    15-Day DL

  • Billy Butler not in Sunday's lineup
    Billy Butler is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's simply a day of rest. Mark Canha is in the designated hitter spot Sunday in Butler's place.
    Sunday, 9:02 am
  • Adam Eaton (illness) still out Sunday
    Adam Eaton (illness) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's now poised to miss the entire three-game set in Minnesota. Eaton should be ready to go after Monday's off day. J.B. Shuck is in center field again Sunday in Eaton's place.
    Sunday, 8:33 am
  • Pujols slugs fourth homer in loss to Giants
    Albert Pujols slugged his fourth home run of the season Saturday in the Angels' loss to the Giants.

    Advice: The seventh-inning shot off Tim Hudson was Albert's only hit of the game. He sat out Thursday and Friday with a left hamstring injury but told reporters late Saturday that it's no longer bothering him. The 35-year-old is batting just .210/.289/.395 on the young season, but he should be good for 25-plus dingers if he can stay mostly healthy.
    Saturday, 5:45 pm
  • Josh Hamilton to play three innings Monday
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will play three innings Monday in an extended spring training game.

    Advice: Hamilton isn't ready to play the field yet, so he'll only bat. The former Angel underwent shoulder surgery during spring training and is slated to return in late May. In the meantime, Jake Smolinski and Carlos Peguero will fill in at left field. Hamilton has been in decline for years but a return to Texas may rejuvenate his fantasy value. 84 of his 192 career home runs have come at Globe Life Park.

  • Jimmy Rollins not in Dodgers' lineup Sat.
    Jimmy Rollins is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday night against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: It's a day of mental and physical rest for the veteran shortstop, who's batting just .179/.278/.321 in 22 games this year. Enrique Hernandez is starting at short and Joc Pederson is leading off for Los Angeles.
    Saturday, 2:47 pm
  • Pujols returns to Angels lineup on Saturday
    Albert Pujols (hamstring) has returned to the Angels starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He's slotted in his regular third slot in the Angels lineup and will play first base. Before he sustained the injury, the veteran slugger was hitting just .208/.291/.364 with three homers and nine RBI in 21 games.
    Saturday, 11:12 am
  • Adam Eaton remains out of White Sox lineup
    Adam Eaton remains out of the White Sox lineup on Saturday due to illness.

    Advice: Eaton was given a night off on Friday as he was feeling under the weather and doesn't appear to have improved overnight. J.B. Shuck is starting in his place in center field and will bat leadoff against Ricky Nolasco and the Twins.
    Saturday, 8:35 am
  • Adam Eaton not in Friday's lineup
    Adam Eaton is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Eaton had an awful April, batting just .192/.241/.256 over 19 contests. J.B. Shuck is in center field, while Micah Johnson is in the leadoff spot.
    Friday, 1:27 pm
  • Rangers hope Hamilton is ready by late May
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said earlier this week that the club hopes Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will be ready for activation in late May.

    Advice: Previous timetables had Hamilton possibly returning as soon as mid-May, but it appears the goal is to get him back late this month. Hamilton is recovered from shoulder surgery, but he's essentially in spring training mode right now and needs to work himself back into game shape. Rangers outfield instructor Dwayne Murphy said Wednesday that he's pleased with how Hamilton has looked in workouts. "I like what I see from him, especially the eagerness to play," Murphy said. "I have to put the reins on him because he wants to do a lot more. That is good."

  • James Paxton solid for seven innings
    James Paxton surrendered two runs over seven innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Astros.

    Advice: Scott Feldman matched him, so Paxton remains winless through five starts. Still, this was the best outing -- and the best velocity -- he's had so far, and it was badly needed with his rotation spot potentially in jeopardy. He still has some potential for mixed-league value, and he probably needs to be picked up in any 12- or 14-team leagues in which he's gotten dropped.
    Thursday, 8:48 pm
  • Pujols (hamstring) hopes to play this weekend
    Albert Pujols said Thursday that his left hamstring was feeling better and that he's hopeful of playing Saturday or Sunday in San Francisco.

    Advice: The Angels are likely to take things cautiously with their veteran slugger, so while he could appear as a pinch-hitter over the weekend, it would be surprising to see him return to the lineup so quickly.
    Thursday, 4:40 pm
  • Albert Pujols says left hamstring feels 'OK'
    Albert Pujols told reporters Thursday morning that his left hamstring feels "OK."

    Advice: But he is not in the Angels' lineup Thursday afternoon in Oakland and he probably won't get any starts during the team's weekend series in San Francisco, where there will be no option to DH him. Pujols pulled up lame on a base hit in the sixth inning Wednesday night and had to limp off the field, but he believes it was just a hamstring cramp.
    Thursday, 9:56 am
  • Pirela (concussion) shifts rehab to Triple-A
    Jose Pirela (concussion) has shifted his rehab assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: He's 1-for-14 in four rehab games between High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton, but the Yankees aren't going to be too worried about those results. Pirala should join the big league roster as a utility infielder by early next week. The 25-year-old suffered a concussion on March 22 when he knocked into a wall at spring training.
    Thursday, 9:07 am

    4:07 pm @Tor
  • Pujols (hamstring) expected to avoid the DL
    Albert Pujols is expected to avoid the disabled list after leaving Wednesday's game with hamstring tightness.

    Advice: Pujols is set to miss at least a couple of games, though. C.J. Cron will start at first base unless the Angels decide to call up Efren Navarro. Collin Cowgill and Grant Green could get some extra at-bats. Pujols tweaked his hamstring Wednesday night on a sixth-inning single.
    Wednesday, 10:47 pm
  • Pujols exits with potential hamstring injury
    Albert Pujols left Wednesday's game against the Athletics with a potential left hamstring injury.

    Advice: Pujols singled in the sixth inning but clutched his hamstring as he jogged to first base. The 35-year-old left the game but was moving fairly well, lending hope to the idea that it's a mostly precautionary measure. The Angels should give an update shortly.
    Wednesday, 8:48 pm
  • Rosenthal escapes trouble for his 8th save
    Trevor Rosenthal got out of a ninth-inning jam for his eighth save of the season in Wednesday's victory versus the Phillies.

    Advice: Rosenthal was tasked with protecting a three-run lead against the light-hitting Phillies. After getting two quick outs, he allowed a single to pinch-hitter Grady Sizemore and a walk to Ben Revere to bring up the tying run in the form of Odubel Herrera. Rosenthal powered a fastball by Herrera to close out the contest. The right-hander moves to 8-for-8 in save chances with a 0.93 ERA and a 14/5 K/BB ratio in 9 2/3 innings.
    Wednesday, 8:03 pm
  • Report: Dodgers talked Hamilton before trade
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports hears the Dodgers were involved in talks with the Angels for Josh Hamilton before he was traded to the Rangers.

    Advice: Every scenario still had Hamilton ending up in Texas, Heyman said, but the Dodgers wanted to get involved in hopes of trading cash for prospects. The Dodgers, obviously, have no use for Hamilton, so there's no reason to think they're in the market for an outfielder despite the report.

  • Cashner punches out 10 in loss to Astros
    Andrew Cashner struck out 10 over seven innings but allowed three runs -- two earned -- in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: For the second straight day a Padres pitcher enjoyed a strong strikeout total against a free-swinging Astros club but ended up with the loss. For Cashner, he allowed six hits and walked one but was simply outpitched by Dallas Keuchel. It was still a largely positive start for the right-hander, who fell to 1-4 but owns a 2.61 ERA and 36/8 K/BB ratio through five starts. Cashner will look to get in the win column Tuesday at the Giants.
    Wednesday, 3:18 pm
  • Jose Pirela (concussion) could return Wed.
    Jose Pirela (concussion) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Wednesday.

    Advice: Pirela has appeared in two rehab games. The Yankees sent Gregorio Petit down Tuesday to make room for spot starter Chase Whitley. It's likely that they'll then replace Whitley with Pirela, who would serve in a utility role.

  • Rangers, Angels finalize Josh Hamilton trade
    Rangers acquired OF Josh Hamilton from the Angels for cash considerations.

    Advice: The deal was officially announced by the Angels' Twitter account on Monday afternoon. Anaheim is expected to eat $68 million of the $80 million still owed to Hamilton from his original five-year, $125 million agreement with the club. He'll get a fresh restart in Texas after a falling out with the Angels brought on by his offseason alcohol and cocaine relapse. Hamilton is expected to be recovered from shoulder surgery in mid- to late-May and carries considerably more fantasy value with the Rangers than he would have with the Halos.

  • Josh Hamilton spotted at Globe Life Park
    Josh Hamilton has been spotted at the Rangers' Globe Life Park.

    Advice: Which presumably means the trade sending him from Anaheim to Texas has been completed and will be formally announced on Monday afternoon. The Angels are reportedly going to eat $68 million of the $80 million owed to Hamilton. His deal will also now reportedly carry an opt-out clause for after the 2016 season. Hamilton is due back from shoulder surgery in mid-May. It's a pretty great deal for Texas if the 33-year-old outfielder can stay on the straight and narrow.

  • Pirela (concussion) begins rehab assignment
    Jose Pirela (concussion) began a rehab assignment Sunday with the High-A Tampa Yankees.

    Advice: Pirela served as Tampa's designated hitter in his rehab debut and went 0-for-4. The 25-year-old catcher had been on the shelf since March 22 with a bad concussion. He'll head to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's fully healthy and his timing is right.

  • Hamilton deal expected to be finalized Monday
    Alden Gonzalez of reports that the trade sending Josh Hamilton to the Rangers is still expected to be finalized on Monday.

    Advice: There had been rumblings that the two sides would clear all hurdles and get it done on Sunday afternoon, but it looks as though that was optimistic. The Angels are said to be willing to eat up to $68 million remaining on Hamilton's deal, and the beleaguered outfielder is expected to receive an opt-out clause in the contract following the 2016 season.

  • Hamilton trade could be finalized Sunday's T.R. Sullivan reports that the trade of Josh Hamilton to the Rangers could be finalized as soon as Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan says the deal could be announced Sunday evening. The Angels are reportedly willing to eat $68 million of the $80 million remaining on Hamilton's contract in order to get something done. Hamilton will sacrifice $6 million of guaranteed money and will receive an opt-out clause in his deal after the 2016 season.

  • James Paxton strikes out seven Twins
    James Paxton yielded four runs -- one earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Saturday against the Twins.

    Advice: Paxton struck out seven. His velocity, while still down some from last year, was slightly better than it's been previously this season. He's not nearly out of the woods yet, but his fortunes seem a little better tonight than they did six days ago, when he got lit up by the hapless Rangers.
