  • Braves recall LHP Marksberry from Triple-A
    Braves recalled LHP Matt Marksberry from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: He'll take Aaron Blair's spot on the active roster. Marksberry made one appearance with the Braves back in April and owns a 2.84 ERA and 25/14 K/BB ratio over 25 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A. Today, 11:37 am
  • Red Sox opton INF Marrero to minors
    Red Sox optioned INF Deven Marrero to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: The Red Sox have added William Cuevas to their bullpen for Saturday's game. Marrero went 1-for-7 with three strikeouts during his brief stay in the majors. Today, 10:36 am

  • Gomes (back) in Indians' lineup Saturday
    Yan Gomes (back) is in the Indians' lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Gomes was held out of the lineup Friday after having a cyst in his lower back drained. He should be good to go moving forward. Today, 10:01 am
  • Ozuna not in Saturday's lineup
    Marcell Ozuna is not in Saturday's lineup versus the Cubs.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against right-hander John Lackey. Ichiro Suzuki will make the start in center field and bat leadoff as he continues his chase toward 3,000 MLB hits. He's currently 17 away. Today, 9:06 am
    1:10 pm vs x ChC
  • Arcia expected to be in lineup Sat. night
    Oswaldo Arcia is expected to be in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: The Rays are going with Jaff Decker, Taylor Motter, and Corey Dickerson in their outfield and Brad Miller out of the DH spot in the first game. Arcia hasn't played since June 14, so the Rays didn't want him to play both games of the doubleheader. The 25-year-old should split time between right field and the DH spot with his new team. Today, 8:57 am
  • King Felix (calf) showing improvement
    Mariners manager Scott Servais said Friday that Felix Hernandez (calf) continues to show improvement.

    Advice: "He's feeling good," said Servais. "He's picking up his throwing routine, getting stretched out. I think he's trying to get out to 120 feet today. I heard him arguing with [trainer Rick] Griffin in there about wanting to do a little bit more, so you know he's progressing really nicely. We can't have him soon enough." King Felix has been sidelined since May 27 with a right calf strain, but he's likely on track to return right after the All-Star break. Today, 8:41 am
    15-Day DL
    7:10 pm vs StL
  • Orioles call up LHP T.J. McFarland
    Orioles recalled LHP T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: He'll serve as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays. McFarland owns a 5.14 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 6/7 K/BB ratio over 21 innings with the Orioles this season. Today, 7:28 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. Today, 6:25 am
    60-Day DL
    7:05 pm vs Phi
  • 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. Today, 5:17 am

  • Khris Davis hits three-run homer in win
    Khris Davis went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer as the Athletics topped the Angels 7-4 on Friday.

    Advice: Davis has 18 homers and 49 RBI this season, so he's defensively doing something right. Of course, he also has a 71/8 K/BB ratio, which, combined with a .243 average and just eight doubles, leaves him with a .781 OPS that's far more solid than spectacular. He might be trade bait again this summer. Yesterday, 10:59 pm
  • Springer rocks Royals with grand slam Friday
    George Springer blasted a grand slam as part of a three hit day, leading the Astros to a 13-4 victory over the Royals on Friday.

    Advice: Springer led off the game with a triple and followed it up with the grand slam the same inning. He finished the game 3-for-5 with a walk, five RBI and two runs scored. Springer has been a near-elite fantasy force with 16 home runs, 51 runs scored, 46 RBI, six steals and a .266 batting average. Yesterday, 10:54 pm
  • Rasmus goes 4-for-5 with a home run on Friday
    Colby Rasmus filled the box score by going 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored on Friday versus the Royals.

    Advice: Rasmus played like an MVP for the first three weeks of the season but had been awful ever since. Tonight he cheered his owners up immensely. Rasmus has been very streaky throughout his career, so perhaps this game is the start of something good. He now has a .245 batting average with ten home runs, 26 runs, 39 RBI and four steals. Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Carlos Martinez sharp again
    Carlos Martinez held the Mariners to one run in seven innings in a no-decision Friday.

    Advice: Martinez has allowed a total of two runs in 22 1/3 innings in his last three starts, lowering his ERA from 3.76 to 3.02. Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Robertson evades trouble for 19th save
    David Robertson collected his 19th save despite loading the bases with Blue Jays in the ninth inning on Friday.

    Advice: Robertson induced a fly-out to right from Devon Travis before walking Darwin Barney. Ezequiel Carrera and Josh Donaldson both got cheap singles to load the bases. Robertson then fanned Edwin Encarnacion and got Michael Saunders to pop out to end the game. Robertson has walked too many batters to be dominant this year but has still been very effective, blowing only two saves. He remains locked in as the White Sox closer. Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Price gets pounded for six runs on Friday
    David Price was hammered by the Rangers for six earned runs on 12 base hits in only 2 1/3 innings on Friday and was lucky to escape with a no-decision when the Red Sox came back late to win the game.

    Advice: Price's ERA took a beating and is now back up to 4.68 in 102 innings. Considering he gave up so many hits in such a short time Price could have given up even more runs, but only two of the twelve hits went for extra bases and he didn't add to his misery by walking anyone. Price was terrible early in the season but had been pitching very effectively for a long time. This was his first clunker since a May 7th game against the Yankees. He should be one of the better pitchers in the league moving forward. Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Gomes sitting out after having cyst drained
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Friday after having a cyst in his lower back drained.

    Advice: He'll be available to pinch-hit Friday and will be back in the lineup Saturday. Chris Gimenez is catching in Gomes' place. Yesterday, 1:12 pm
  • Rays acquire Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins
    Rays acquired OF Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: Arcia has hit only .240/.303/.429 over 967 plate appearances at the big league level, but he just turned 25 last month and has shown lots of power in flashes. He should see playing time in the corner outfield spots while Brandon Guyer (hamstring) and Steven Souza (hip) are sidelined, although both players are due back soon. Yesterday, 10:58 am
  • Ozuna hits 16th home run in win over Cubs
    Marcell Ozuna hit his 16th home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Ozuna took Cubs starter Jon Lester deep for a solo shot in the sixth inning. The 25-year-old now has four homers in his last five games as he continues his breakout year. Ozuna is now batting .322/.373/.578 with 44 RBI and 46 runs scored on the year. Thursday, 7:02 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. Thursday, 2:51 pm

  • Hernandez (calf) throws from 75 feet out
    Feliz Hernandez (calf) threw off flat-ground from 75 feet out on Wednesday.

    Advice: Per manager Scott Servais, Hernandez threw for about eight minutes and continues to workout. He is recovering from a strained right calf suffered at the beginning of June. The ace right-hander is likely looking at a return around the All-Star Break. Wednesday, 2:43 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:10 pm vs StL
  • Khris Davis (calf) goes 1-for-5 in return
    Khris Davis (calf) finished 1-for-5 with two runs scored in his return to the A's lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Davis missed one game (Sunday against the Angels) because of cramping in his calf. The big slugger has 16 home runs and 45 RBI in 64 games this season for Oakland. Wednesday, 5:48 am
  • Ozuna not in Tuesday's lineup
    Marcell Ozuna is out of the Marlins' lineup Tuesday versus the Braves.

    Advice: Ozuna had a two-homer night Monday against the Rockies, but he'll be on the bench in Tuesday's series opener. Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field and batting leadoff against Bud Norris. Tuesday, 12:19 pm
    1:10 pm vs x ChC
  • Robertson strike out two to earn 17th save
    David Robertson struck out two in a scoreless 10th inning against the Red Sox on Monday to earn his 17th save.

    Advice: Robertson gave up a harmless two-out single to David Ortiz, but he struck out Hanley Ramirez to end the threat and the game. The save chance came a day after Robertson sustained his first loss of the season on Sunday. He's got a 3.81 ERA and 1.41 WHIP to go with 32 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings on the year. Monday, 8:30 pm
  • Ozuna's two-homer game not enough for Marlins
    Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two home runs in Monday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Ozuna enjoyed his matchup with Rockies starter De La Rosa, taking the lefty deep in the first and fourth innings, both times for solo shots. The homers gave him 15 jacks on the year to go with a .322/.374/.567 line. That .322 batting average is third-best in the National League. Monday, 8:10 pm
    1:10 pm vs x ChC
  • Price fires eight innings of one-run ball
    David Price pitched admirably in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Mariners, allowing one run on eight hits over eight innings.

    Advice: Price struck out seven without walking a batter on the afternoon. Franklin Gutierrez rocked a solo homer off him in the fourth inning, but he otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. After scuffling through April and early May, the ace southpaw has been fantastic. He has made it through eight innings in each of his last three starts and has allowed two or fewer runs in six of his last eight outings. Price will carry a 4.24 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 109/24 K/BB ratio (99 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Rangers next time he takes the mound. Sunday, 6:59 pm
  • Ozuna styles three-run home run in victory
    Marcell Ozuna clocked a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Ozuna rocked a three-run homer in the sixth inning to snap a scoreless tie. Those would be the only runs to score in the game, for either team. In addition to the big home run, he also picked up a pair of singles to finish 3-for-4. This season, the 25-year-old outfielder is slashing .319/.372/.545 with 13 homers and 41 RBI. Just about any way you slice it, Ozuna is posting a stellar offensive season. Sunday, 2:22 pm
    1:10 pm vs x ChC
  • Khris Davis (calf) sitting out Sunday's game
    Khris Davis (calf) is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Davis departed Saturday's contest with cramping in his calf. He'll be fine, but the A's will have him rest Sunday. Jake Smolinski is handling left field. Sunday, 10:14 am
  • King Felix (calf) to resume throwing soon
    Felix Hernandez (calf) will resume flat-ground throwing on Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Advice: Hernandez's strained right calf is finally feeling better. He's been on the shelf for all of June and will need to be built back up a bit before being activated. Hernandez could still make it back before the All-Star break, but the start of the second half is more likely. Sunday, 8:55 am
    15-Day DL
    7:10 pm vs StL
  • Cardinals waste seven scoreless from C-Mart
    Carlos Martinez threw seven shutout innings but didn't factor in the decision Saturday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Martinez was brilliant, allowing just four singles and issuing one free pass before exiting. He left with a lead and a chance at his fourth straight win, but the bullpen stumbled and cost him the victory. Even so, it was another very strong turn for the 24-year-old, who owns a 3.17 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 66/27 K/BB ratio over 82 1/3 innings of work this year. Another interleague date, this time with the Mariners, is on tap for Friday. Saturday, 8:30 pm
  • Springer delivers walk-off hit to down Reds
    George Springer hit a walk-off, RBI single in the 11th inning to give the Astros a 5-4 win over the Reds on Saturday.

    Advice: Springer was hitless in his first four at-bats before coming through with a one-out single in the 11th to plate Jason Castro and send Astros fans home happy. It was his 41st RBI of the year, an impressive number considering he's spent his entire season batting first or second in the order. The 26-year-old is hitting .268/.354/.472 overall. Saturday, 5:24 pm
  • Khris Davis leaves game with calf cramping
    Khris Davis left Saturday's game against the Angels with some minor cramping in his calf.

    Advice: "I'll be alright," he told reporters after the 7-1 loss. Davis went 0-for-2 against Tim Lincecum before giving way to Max Muncy. He might sit out Sunday's series finale. Saturday, 4:36 pm
  • Orioles option T.J. McFarland to Triple-A
    Orioles optioned LHP T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: McFarland is the odd-man out with Yovani Gallardo and J.J. Hardy returning from the disabled list on Saturday. The 27-year-old southpaw owns a 5.14 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 6/7 K/BB ratio over 21 innings with the big league club this year. He'll be back with the O's at some point this summer. Saturday, 12:14 pm
  • Colby Rasmus not in Astros lineup on Saturday
    Colby Rasmus is not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He'll take a seat in favor of Jake Marisnick with southpaw Cody Reed on the hill for the Reds. Rasmus has fallen off a cliff since his hot start, slashing a cringe-inducing .199/.265/.287 with three homers and a 57/16 K/BB ratio in 43 games since April 24. Saturday, 9:12 am
  • Red Sox recall Deven Marrero from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled INF Deven Marrero from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: The 25-year-old infielder will provide depth while Josh Rutledge is on the disabled list. A defensive-minded shortstop, Marrero was hitting just .216/.256/.264 with no homers and 19 RBI at Pawtucket. He holds no fantasy value. Saturday, 8:52 am

  • Khris Davis hits 16th homer
    Khris Davis went 2-for-4 and hit his 16th homer Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: It's Davis's second homer of June after he hit 11 in May. He's one more good game away from having a .250 average for the first time all year. Right now, he's at .246. Friday, 10:56 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. Friday, 3:43 pm
    60-Day DL
    7:05 pm vs Phi
  • Yan Gomes not in Friday's lineup
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Chris Gimenez is behind the plate. Friday, 12:22 pm
  • Twins designate Arcia for assignment
    Twins designated OF Oswaldo Arcia for assignment.

    Advice: The Twins needed to clear a spot for Danny Santana, who is back after missing two weeks with a strained hamstring. The 25-year-old has struggled offensively this year, hitting just .214 with 46 strikeouts in 103 at-bats. He'll be sent to Triple-A if he clears waivers. Thursday, 8:43 pm
  • Yan Gomes goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Yan Gomes went 0-for-4 against the Royals on Wednesday, dropping his average to .167.

    Advice: Gomes hasn't finished a game with a .200 average since April 29, but this is still as low as he's been in a month; he's in the midst of a 5-for-45 slump. Gomes' track record suggests that he's still going to bounce back, but the Indians have to be getting sick of waiting. Wednesday, 8:52 pm
  • Springer blasts go-ahead two run bomb
    George Springer launched a two-run homer in the eighth inning to spring the Astros past the Cardinals on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Astros were trailing 1-0 when Springer cracked his 15th homer. That was all the scoring his team would need to win. It was Springer's only hit of the game. He is up to .266/.352/.478 with 44 runs and 40 RBI. The four steals (and six caught stealing) are a disappointment for a guy who stole 45 bases in the minors in 2013. Wednesday, 8:14 pm
  • Felix Hernandez (calf) throws lightly
    Felix Hernandez (calf) is taking part in a "light-throwing routine," according to the Tacoma News Tribune's Bob Dutton.

    Advice: Hernandez was placed on the disabled list with a strained right calf on June 1. While he has been throwing a bit, he has yet to toss a bullpen. The ace right-hander underwent an MRI on Friday and it was determined that he will likely miss another four weeks or thereabouts. He could potentially return around the All-Star break assuming he does not hit any setbacks in his rehab. Wednesday, 1:10 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:10 pm vs StL
  • Khris Davis hits RBI single, RBI double in L
    Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Davis -- who clubbed a three-run homer and finished with five RBI on Monday -- hit an RBI double in the first inning against Rangers starter Martin Perez, following that up with an RBI single in the sixth. He struck out in his other two at-bats. For the season, the 28-year-old slugger has hit to a .249/.286/.502 triple-slash with 15 homers and 44 RBI across 217 at-bats. Tuesday, 11:55 pm
