  • Jansen allows a run following his first walk
    Kenley Jansen allowed a run but still snagged his 12th save of the season as the Dodgers pulled out a 6-4 victory in 10 innings against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: With two outs, Jansen issued his first walk of the season to his 56th batter. Paul Goldschmidt then punished him for the walk with an RBI double. Jansen bounced back to strike out Yasmany Tomas to end the game. The right-hander is 12-for-13 in save chances this season with a 1.08 ERA and a 28/1 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • De La Rosa solid in 5 2/3 IP in no-decision
    Rubby De La Rosa scattered two runs in 5 2/3 innings, but got a no-decision in Tuesday's 10-inning loss versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Both runs scored on a Yasmany Tomas home run in the second inning. De La Rosa allowed six hits and a walk overall while striking out seven. He's put together four terrific starts in a row now but still has a mediocre 4.60 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 94/26 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will look to keep it going when he faces the Rockies at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • Frias goes 5 innings in no-decision vs DBacks
    Carlos Frias allowed three runs in five innings, getting a no-decision as the Dodgers needed 10 innings to fend off the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Frias gave up seven hits and walked three while striking out only one batter. Nick Ahmed struck the big blow in the fourth inning with a two-run home run. Things could've gone a lot worse for Frias. The young right-hander now owns a 4.39 ERA with a 1.55 WHIP and a 40/24 K/BB ratio in 69 2/3 innings. He'll have a decent match-up his next time out as he'll face the Phillies at home. Rotoworld.com

  • Goldschmidt extends hit streak to 10 games
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a walk, but the Diamondbacks lost in 10 innings to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt kept hope alive, drilling a two run double in the bottom of the 10th inning against Kenley Jansen to make it a 6-4 game. The first baseman is on a 10-game hitting streak, batting a ridiculous .354/.469/.639 with 20 home runs, 65 RBI, and 15 stolen bases to date. Rotoworld.com

  • Grandal plates four as Dodgers beat DBacks
    Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's 10-inning win against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Grandal opened the scoring with a two-run home run off of Rubby De La Rosa in the second inning. He added necessary insurance in the 10th inning with a two-run double to make it a 6-3 game. Grandal has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 12 on the season along with 31 RBI and a .269/.380/.497 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Blackmon knocks in a run in a win vs. the A's
    Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with an RBI, helping the Rockies eke out a win against the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Blackmon singled in a run in the fifth inning against Chris Bassitt to break a scoreless tie. The outfielder is batting a productive .275/.348/.443 with 10 home runs, 34 RBI, and 21 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Bassitt pitches well in relief of Sonny Gray
    Chris Bassitt, making a spot start, limited the Rockies to one run in five innings, but suffered a tough luck loss on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sonny Gray was scratched due to an illness, so Bassitt was called up from Triple-A Nashville. The right-hander scattered five hits, walked none, and struck out three in the effort. As Gray will presumably be over his illness soon, Bassitt is likely headed back to Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Martinez homers again, but Tigers fall in 14
    J.D. Martinez went 3-for-6 with a two-run home run, but the Tigers couldn't overcome the Pirates in 14 innings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Martinez belted a two-run home run to left-center off of Tony Watson in the bottom of the eighth inning, knotting the game up at four apiece. It's his fourth home run in his last five games and his seventh in his last seven. He has 20 round-trippers on the year with 48 RBI and a .275/.330/.535 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Nova allows two solo homers to take a loss
    Ivan Nova allowed two solo home runs, proving to be his undoing over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: They both came in the sixth inning, back-to-back shots from Albert Pujols and Erick Aybar. Nova struck out David Freese, but then allowed a double to Matt Joyce to end his evening. He gave up eight hits and two walks overall while striking out seven. The right-hander has been solid in two starts since being activated, as he pitched 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball against the Phillies in his previous start. Nova will face the Athletics at home next.

  • Teixeira's 19th HR serves as Yanks' only run
    Mark Teixeira provided the Yankees their only run in Tuesday's loss against the Angels.

    Advice: It was a solo home run to left-center off of Andrew Heaney, one of only two Yankee hits on the evening. He finished 1-for-2 with a walk. Teixeira hadn't homered since June 15, but has 19 on the season with 54 RBI and a .246/.359/.536 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols rips 24th home run as Angels edge NYY
    Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Angels edge the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pujols tied the game at 1-1 when he ripped a solo home run to straightaway center field off of Ivan Nova. He has 24 on the season and seems like a good bet to cross the 40-homer threshold by season's end, which would be the first time he will have done that since 2010. Pujols has also knocked in 49 runs while batting .265/.332/.558. Rotoworld.com

  • Kennedy serves up two homers in loss to SEA
    Ian Kennedy gave up four runs over five innings to take the loss on Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Mike Zunino ripped a solo home run in the third inning to open the scoring. An Austin Jackson RBI single and a two-run Brad Miller home run created a three-run fourth to account for the rest of the offense. Kennedy allowed five hits and a walk overall while striking out five. The right-hander has looked competent at times this season, but hasn't been able to gather any momentum. He has a 5.23 ERA with a 1.34 WHIP and a 70/23 K/BB ratio in 74 innings. Kennedy will try to change his luck with a road start against the Cardinals in his next trip out to the mound. Rotoworld.com

  • Nunez' three-hit night leads Twins past Reds
    Eduardo Nunez finished 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Twins trumped the Reds 8-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nunez and the Twins racked up 15 hits against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds bullpen. The shortstop had three of them, collecting two singles and a double. He also stole his third base of the season. Nunez' usage has been inexplicable at times -- the light-hitting shortstop has served as the team's designated hitter in 11 games this year -- but he's put up decent numbers through 33 games, hitting .305/.350/.516 with 11 RBI and 13 runs scored. Perhaps he'll begin garnering more of the playing time at short with his hot hitting. Rotoworld.com

  • Suarez blasts second home run against Twins
    Eugenio Suarez hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Suarez hit a solo shot off Phil Hughes in the third inning to get the Reds on the board. The homer was his second in 17 games this season. Suarez took over for Zack Cozart at shortstop and has held his own, hitting .328/.369/.475. Despite that, his offensive upside is limited and he can be ignored in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Mauer collects two RBI in win over Reds
    Joe Mauer went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Mauer scored a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning before adding an RBI single in the eighth. It was Mauer's first multi-RBI game since June 5, as he totaled nine RBI for the month of June. The multi-hit game was just his fifth this month. With Tuesday's game, Mauer is now hitting .263/.334/.370 with 39 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • A's recall RHP Bassitt from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled RHP Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The A's have yet to announce a corresponding roster move. Bassitt will start against the Rockies on Tuesday in place of Sonny Gray, who was scratched due to illness. The 26-year-old has posted a 3.71 ERA and 64/18 K/BB ratio over 63 innings this season in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Goldschmidt adds 2 RBI, 2 SB in D'Backs win
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run single, and two stolen bases as the Diamondbacks pounded their way to a win over the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt is now on a 10-game hitting streak, extended with a single in the sixth inning just ahead of a Yasmany Tomas home run. Goldy then ripped a two-run single in the eighth to cap off a four-run frame. He's having a bonkers year, carrying a .352/.467/.637 triple-slash line with 20 home runs, 64 RBI, 15 stolen bases, 55 runs scored, and 60 walks. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:30 pm
  • Blackmon the Rockies' only source of offense
    Charlie Blackmon provided the Rockies their only run with a homer in Monday's loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Blackmon finished 1-for-5, drilling a solo shot in the eighth inning to put the Rockies on the board. He's posting similar numbers as last season, batting .275/.349/.446 with 10 home runs and 33 RBI, but he's really turned things up in the stolen base department. Blackmon has stolen 21 bases already in less than half a season compared to 28 last year. Rotoworld.com

  • Suarez knocks in 3 runs, steals two bases
    Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI, and two stolen bases as the Reds held on to beat the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: Suarez had logged four straight multi-hit games between June 21-25 and did it again on Monday. He doubled in two runs in the third inning and singled in a run in the sixth in a slugfest. Suarez is filling in for the injured Zack Cozart and has done well thus far, batting .316/.361/.421 with nine RBI and three stolen bases in 62 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Jansen works around leadoff 2B for 11th save
    Kenley Jansen allowed a leadoff double, but worked around it for his 11th save in Sunday's 2-0 win against the Marlins.

    Advice: Christian Yelich greeted Jansen with a leadoff double, which allowed the Marlins to bring the potential tying run to the plate on three separate occasions. Jansen struck out Adeiny Hechavarria and Marcell Ozuna consecutively before getting Derek Dietrich to foul out to end the contest. Jansen has been utterly dominant since debuting in mid-May, now 11-for-12 in save opportunities with a 0.57 ERA and a 26/0 K/BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • J.D. Martinez powers Tigers past White Sox
    J.D. Martinez blasted a solo home run in the eighth inning on Friday, propelling the Tigers to a 5-4 victory over the White Sox.

    Advice: The game had been knotted up at 4-4 before Martinez took Zach Duke over the wall in left-center for the game-winning blast. He has now homered in three consecutive games for the second time this month, and has nine home runs in his last 12 contests. On the season, he's slashing a healthy .274/.331/.533 with 19 home runs and 46 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:26 pm
  • Yasmani Grandal sitting again on Friday
    Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's the second straight game he's been on the bench. Grandal isn't suffering from any known injury, so it appears the club is just wanting to go with A.J. Ellis behind the plate. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:14 pm
  • De La Rosa impressive in no-decision
    Rubby De La Rosa spun seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

    Advice: De La Rosa left with the lead, but the Diamondbacks' bullpen quickly coughed it up in the eighth inning. Still, it was a very impressive outing at a tough place to pitch. De La Rosa gave up just five hits and one walk while striking out five, with the only damage coming on a solo homer from Nolan Arenado in the sixth. The 26-year-old has allowed just two earned runs in 22 innings over his last three starts, improving his ERA from 5.84 to 4.69 in the process. He'll try to keep it going against the Dodgers next week at home. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:02 pm
  • Frias spins 5 shutout frames to beat the Cubs
    Carlos Frias hurled five innings of shutout ball to earn a win versus the Cubs on Thursday.

    Advice: Frias, on 82 pitches, worked around seven hits and three walks with five strikeouts to keep the Cubs off the board. The 25-year-old right-hander has been more miss than hit lately for fantasy purposes and should continue to be passed over despite Thursday's results. He has a 4.31 ERA, a 1.52 WHIP, and a 39/21 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings. Frias will face the Diamondbacks in Arizona next. Rotoworld.com

  • Martinez clubs his 9th June homer in a loss
    J.D. Martinez went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 10-inning loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Martinez reduced the Tigers' deficit to 5-4 with a two-run home run in the fifth inning off of Carlos Rodon, marking his fifth home run in his last four games.

  • Paul Goldschmidt hits 20th homer
    Paul Goldschmidt launched his 20th homer of the year Wednesday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Goldschmidt's 20th homer came in his 71st game of the season. Last year, he hit 19 in 109 games before a fractured hand ended his season. He's also surpassed his 2014 total in steals (12 to 9) and he's getting close to last year's walk total (57 to 64). Rotoworld.com

  • Kennedy's 5 unearned runs sink Padres
    Ian Kennedy held the Giants to one earned run over six innings Wednesday, but was charged with five unearned runs in the 6-0 loss.

    Advice: Leadoff hitter Andrew Susac reached safely on Will Middlebrooks' error in the third inning, setting the stage for a frustrating inning of pecking until Buster Posey blasted a grand slam. Owners who waited out Kennedy's horrific start are almost out of that long, desolate tunnel. After going 2-5 with a 7.15 ERA across his first eight starts, Kennedy had gone 2-0 with a 2.63 mark in his past four prior to tonight. At home against the Mariners next week, Kennedy is usable in just about every format. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:18 pm
  • Nova shuts down Phillies in return from TJS
    Ivan Nova delivered 6 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in the Yankees' 10-2 pounding of the Phillies.

    Advice: It was Nova's first major league start since undergoing Tommy John surgery last April and he looked as sharp as anyone could have hoped for, yielding only three hits and two walks while pitching into the seventh inning. Now we'll see how he handles a real offense next week in Anaheim. Expectations should be tempered as Nova works back to full strength, though he could make for a decent fantasy streamer in the right matchups. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:30 pm
  • Teixeira drives home two in return Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira finished 3-for-5 with two RBI in the Yankees' rout of the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: That cortisone shot for his neck injury apparently did the trick. All of Teixeira's hits were singles, but he drove in one run in the Yankees' three-run fourth inning and another run in the Yankees' four-run seventh inning. The veteran first baseman is batting .259/.369/.557 with 51 RBI in 66 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:25 pm
  • J.D. Martinez goes deep Wed. in loss
    J.D. Martinez ripped a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: His longball in the seventh inning got the Tigers on the board, but that's as close as they got with Carlos Carrasco cruising most of the day. Martinez now has 17 home runs on the season to put him on pace for 38, which would far surpass the 23 he hit in last year's breakout campaign. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:23 pm
  • Ivan Nova (elbow) returns from disabled list
    Yankees activated RHP Ivan Nova from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Nova will make his season debut on Wednesday versus the Phillies after successfully completing his rehab from Tommy John surgery. It's a nice first matchup for the right-hander, but fantasy owners might want to him him a start or two before sticking him into their lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:49 am
  • Mark Teixeira (neck) returns to lineup Wed.
    Mark Teixeira (neck) is back in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Teixeira was given a cortisone shot to combat his ailing neck and was cleared to return to action after testing things out in batting practice. The Yankees' first baseman is tied for fourth in the American League with 18 home runs this season. Rotoworld.com

    Tuesday, 12:57 pm
  • J.D. Martinez held out of Tuesday's lineup
    J.D. Martinez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

    Advice: It sounds like a routine day off for Martinez, who is 1-for-9 with seven strikeouts against Danny Salazar. Chris Iott of MLive.com points out that this is the second time Brad Ausmus has sat Martinez against Salazar in recent weeks. Rajai Davis is starting in right field. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols' torrid June continues with 2 more HR
    Albert Pujols blasted another pair of home runs, powering the Angels past the Astros on Monday in a 2-for-3 effort.

    Advice: Pujols' first homer, a two-run shot off of Brett Oberholtzer, gave the Angels a 2-1 lead in the fifth inning. He homered again in the seventh to make it 3-1. The veteran has had a torrid June, now having drilled 12 homers in 20 games. He has a league-leading total of 23 on the season along with 47 RBI and a .275/.336/.581 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • MRI on Mark Teixeira's neck comes back clean
    An MRI on Mark Teixeira's neck came back negative.

    Advice: Teixeira isn't dealing with anything serious, although he was given a cortisone injection in hopes of speeding up the healing process. He could miss a few more games while the shot takes effect. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 22, 7:56 pm
  • Teixeira (neck) expected to be out until Wed.
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi doesn't expect Mark Teixeira (neck) back in the lineup until at least Wednesday.

    Advice: Teixeira has been bothered by a neck issue for about 10 days and was sent for an MRI. He's sitting out Monday and will be on the bench Tuesday, as well. "It's hard to turn," Girardi said. "I think we've all experienced that. It can be frustrating, and it's irritating. It's something that's tough to play in, because obviously they have to turn a lot in this game." Rotoworld.com
    Jun 22, 4:53 pm
  • Nova (elbow) to make season debut Wednesday
    Ivan Nova (elbow) will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Nova was knocked around in his final rehab start, but he's feeling healthy and showing good velocity so the Yankees are ready to stick him back into their rotation. The club will go with a six-man rotation for at least one turn, so Nathan Eovaldi and Adam Warren are both safe for now. Fantasy owners should probably give Nova at least a start or two before putting him back into their lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 22, 1:05 pm
  • Teixeira out Monday, undergoing MRI on neck
    Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' lineup on Monday because of lingering stiffness in his neck.

    Advice: Garrett Jones is starting at first base and batting sixth against Phillies right-hander Kevin Correia. Teixeira boasts a stellar .920 OPS with 18 home runs and 49 RBI in 65 games this season, but this neck issue won't seem to go away. He is undergoing an MRI. Rotoworld.com

  • Yasmani Grandal homers twice to power LAD
    Yasmani Grandal blasted a pair of home runs on Sunday night, powering the Dodgers to a 10-2 victory over the Giants.

    Advice: Grandal also singled, finishing the night 3-for-5 with three runs scored and a pair of RBI. Each of Grandal's long balls, and all four that the Dodgers hit in the contest, came off of San Francisco reliever Yusmeiro Petit. Grandal has been an absolute force offensively for the Dodgers this year, slashing .276/.386/.494 with 10 homers and 26 RBI in 170 at-bats. His defense is also drawing positive marks from various metrics. Rotoworld.com

  • J.D. Martinez's three-homer day powers Tigers
    J.D. Martinez had a monster afternoon Sunday, launching three home runs and driving in six in a blowout win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Martinez had a two-run shot off of Masahiro Tanaka in the first inning and then a solo blast off Tanaka in the fifth before capping off his day with a three-run dinger off of Danny Burawa in the sixth. The Tigers outfielder has had his ups and downs this season, but he now has six longballs over his last eight contests and his 16 for the year puts him on pace for 38. Rotoworld.com

  • Martinez hits RBI double in losing effort
    J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a single and an RBI double in Saturday's beatdown at the hands of the Yankees.

    Advice: Martinez notched his 35th RBI of the season with a double off Yankees starter Nate Eovaldi in the seventh inning, but it merely acted as cosmetic effect in his team's 14-3 loss to the Bronx Bombers. Martinez has been a dependable offensive cog in the machine this season and is hitting .269/.329/.478 with 13 homers, 35 RBI and 36 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 20, 8:43 pm
  • Frias allows six runs over 5 1/3 IP vs SF
    Carlos Frias couldn't find traction in a loss to the Giants on Saturday, allowing six runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Four of the six runs against Frias scored via a pair of two-run homers by Justin Maxwell and Brandon Belt in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively. Frias struck out just two while walking one on the way to dropping his record to 4-5. With a 4.68 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 34/18 K/BB ratio in 59 2/3 innings, there's not a ton to recommend here for fantasy purposes, and given the Dodgers' free-spending ways, it's not a given that the team will stand pat with the rotation as the trade deadline nears. Frias will try to rebound from this poor outing when he takes to the road to face the Cubs next Thursday afternoon. Rotoworld.com

  • De La Rosa goes seven in win over Padres
    Rubby De La Rosa yielded two runs (one earned) over seven-plus innings Friday in a 4-2 win over the Padres.

    Advice: De La Rosa had a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning and the second run scored after Daniel Hudson replaced him following back-to-back errors. He fanned six and walked three for his sixth win of the season. After back-to-back awful starts, De La Rosa has now turned in consecutive strong effort to bring his ERA down to 4.96 for the year. He faces a challenging matchup next time out against the Rockies on the road. Rotoworld.com

  • Blackmon has two hits, RBI in loss
    Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple, a walk, and a stolen base Friday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Many were predicting Blackmon to take a step back this season and while his struggles against lefties has pulled down his batting average, he's still providing a lot of value as Colorado's leadoff man. The 28-year-old has eight home runs, 23 RBI, 16 steals and 37 runs scored through 66 games. Rotoworld.com
