  • D'Arnaud's bat, legs lead Braves past Marlins
    Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in the Braves' 8-5 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

    Advice: D'Arnaud scored the first run of the game for the Braves in the third inning, motoring around from first base on Freddie Freeman's triple, and he added RBI hits in the sixth and eighth innings. The 29-year-old, who has played five different positions for the Braves this year, is batting a respectable .276/.349/.366 in 42 games. He's not much to look at, but those in deep NL-only leagues may want to take notice. Yesterday, 10:14 pm

  • Espinosa has two homers, seven RBI in rout
    Danny Espinosa led the charge with two home runs and seven RBI as the Nationals routed the Reds 13-4 on Thursday.

    Advice: Espinosa made his two hits count, cranking a grand slam off Reds starter Brandon Finnegan in the third inning before launching a three-run blast a frame later. It was a strong finish to what was an impressive month for the 29-year-old, as he closes June with nine homers, 21 RBI and 21 runs scored in the month. Espinosa is doing everything he can to keep Trea Turner in the minors for another day. Yesterday, 9:31 pm

  • Peralta has two hits, homer in loss to Royals
    Jhonny Peralta went 2-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: The home run was Peralta's third in 20 games thus far this season. He's got 10 RBI and eight runs scored in those 20 games but is hitting just .232/.267/.415 after missing the first two months of the season following thumb surgery. Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Ramiro Pena diagnosed with sprained ankle
    Ramiro Pena's MRI revealed a sprained ankle.

    Advice: Pena suffered the injury in last night's loss to Oakland. The injury will keep him out of the lineup for the next 5-7 days, though Pena could be available to pinch-hit this weekend. He's hit .400 with six RBI since arriving in the big leagues about three weeks ago. Yesterday, 6:00 pm

  • Diaz and Piscotty available off the bench
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Aledmys Diaz (eye) is available off the bench Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: So is Stephen Piscotty (foot). Diaz hit in the batting cage on Thursday and seems to be doing much better. Don't be surprised if he's back in the lineup for Friday's series opener against Milwaukee. Greg Garcia has been handling shortstop during his absence. Yesterday, 4:31 pm

  • Aledmys Diaz (eye) hits in batting cage Thursday
    Aledmys Diaz said his injured eye is feeling better.

    Advice: He was able to hit in the batting cage on Thursday and it looks like he could be back in the lineup later this weekend. Greg Garcia will start in his place Thursday against Kansas City. Yesterday, 2:52 pm

  • Tim Anderson goes 3-for-4, draws a walk
    Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 and finally collected his first career walk Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Anderson entered the day with a 27/0 K/BB ratio in 82 at-bats. Fortunately, he was hitting .292 anyway (now .314), so the White Sox have kept him in the leadoff spot. Yesterday, 2:47 pm
  • Reyes will need 3-6 more games before recall
    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Thursday that Jose Reyes would need another three-to-six games in the minor leagues before he's recalled.

    Advice: Reyes is getting himself back into game shape while learning how to play third base at Double-A Binghampton. There was thought that with the injury to Curtis Granderson, the Mets may speed up the timeline to get Reyes in New York, but it appears his debut will have to wait until next week.

  • Aledmys Diaz remains out of Cards lineup
    Aledmys Diaz (eye) remains out of the Cardinals starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: It'll be the third straight contest the young shortstop has missed after getting hit by a foul ball above his eye during Monday's game. He could return at some point over the weekend. Yesterday, 1:44 pm
    5:15 pm vs Mil
  • Starlin Castro getting a breather Thursday

    Elvis Andrus is not in the Rangers' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Jurickson Profar will handle shortstop while Andrus rests. Yesterday, 7:46 am
  • Sean Rodriguez knocks in four runs
    Sean Rodriguez doubled twice and knocked in four runs Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Rodriguez entered the night with a .675 OPS and no homers in 65 at-bats in June, so he had cooled considerably after his fantastic start. Still, he's been a terrific asset for the Pirates with his production and versatility this year. Wednesday, 10:33 pm

  • Alcides Escobar delivers from leadoff spot
    Alcides Escobar delivered a go-ahead double in the top of the 12th to help the Royals beat the Cardinals 3-2 on Wednesday.

    Advice: With Whit Merrifield getting the night off (at least to start), Escobar made his first start in the leadoff spot in three weeks. This will probably keep him there through 2018. Not only did he have the 12th-inning double, but his sac fly opened the scoring in the top of the eighth and he also had a single earlier in the contest. The double pushed his OPS back up to .600 for the first time since June 1. Wednesday, 10:22 pm
  • Villar get three hits to raise AVG to .300
    Jonathan Villar rapped three hits in four at-bats, raising his batting average to an even .300 on the season.

    Advice: Villar has come out of nowhere to generate significant fantasy value this year. Most of that value comes from his 26 stolen bases and high batting average. The steals have always been a strength and should stay that way. The batting average is going to fall. His .397 BABIP is unsustainable, so enjoy the high AVG while it lasts. Wednesday, 9:17 pm
  • Seager collects one of only two Dodger hits
    Corey Seager doubled in a 1-for-4 game on Wednesday in Milwaukee on a night when the Dodgers could muster only two base hits.

    Advice: Seager is now batting .296/.355/.531 on the season. Not bad fora 22-year-old, eh? He has 16 home runs, 51 runs scored and 38 RBI to boot. Yasiel Puig got the only other Dodgers' hit before leaving with a minor leg injury. Wednesday, 9:05 pm
  • Nunez nets three hits and a home run on Wed.
    Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-5 with a home run in the Twins' loss on Wednesday.

    Advice: His surprisingly good season continues. Now batting .316 with 11 home runs, the 29-year-old veteran is smashing his career highs in every category this year. He is eligible at third base and shortstop, and could soon gain eligibility at second base in many formats. He is making the most of his first real chance at everyday playing time. Wednesday, 8:40 pm

  • Jose Reyes picks up first hit since signing
    Jose Reyes went 1-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI Wednesday with Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: Reyes had been 0-for-9 since inking a minor league contract with the Mets over the weekend. He snapped that on Wednesday. The veteran infielder could be called up to the majors in short order, possibly as soon as this weekend's playoff rematch with the Cubs. Wednesday, 7:21 pm

  • Giants promote Ruben Tejada to majors
    Giants purchased the contract INF Ruben Tejada from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: The Giants picked up Tejada after the Cardinals released him at the beginning of June. He was hitting just .176/.225/.235 in 23 games with the Red Birds. The 26-year-old infielder is in the Giants' lineup for the first time on Wednesday, hitting ninth and playing third against the A's. Wednesday, 4:21 pm

  • Kike Hernandez heading to DL with rib injury
    Dodgers placed OF Kike Hernandez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 28, with left rib cage inflammation.

    Advice: This one comes a bit out of left field, as there was little indication that Hernandez was dealing with any sort of a significant injury. Manager Dave Roberts shed a little light on the unexpected move to the disabled list, telling reporters that Hernandez has been fighting discomfort for the past two weeks. A timetable for his return should be solidified in the coming days. Prior to the disabled list trip, Hernandez owned an uninspiring .189/.280/.346 triple-slash across 143 plate appearances.

  • Hechavarria notches RBI three-bagger in loss
    Adeiny Hechavarria went 1-for-4 with an RBI triple in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Hechavarria flew around the bases for his RBI triple off Daniel Norris in the second inning. Ichiro would subsequently drive him home with a single, but the Marlins would score just once more in the game as they fell by a score of 10-3. The 27-year-old shortstop owns a .243/.276/.340 triple-slash to pair with eight doubles, three homers and 24 RBI across 259 at-bats. He doesn't make for much of a fantasy option, even in deeper NL-only formats. Wednesday, 1:48 pm
  • Russell slugs solo homer vs. Reds
    Addison Russell slugged a solo homer against the Reds on Wednesday.

    Advice: Russell finished the afternoon 1-for-3 with a walk. With a .236/.331/.388 batting line, the 22-year-old hasn’t taken the leap forward many fantasy owners were hoping for this season, but he’s up to eight homers and 41 RBI through 72 games. He’s obviously in a great spot to continue to amass fantasy value. Wednesday, 1:11 pm
  • Bregman blasts two-run shot in Tuesday's ASG
    Astros SS prospect Alex Bregman bopped a two-run homer as part of a two-hit effort Tuesday in the Texas League All-Star Game.

    Advice: It's not a bad way to go out as Bregman is expected to be promoted to Triple-A Fresno later this week. The 22-year-old had nothing left to prove in Double-A, hitting .297 with 14 HR, 46 RBI and five steals in the first half. The Astros' consensus top prospect hasn't missed a beat since joining the organization as the No. 2 overall pick in last year's draft. With Carlos Correa entrenched at shortstop, Bregman's best shot to crack the big leagues in 2016 will probably come as a third baseman. Wednesday, 11:39 am

  • Trevor Story not in Wednesday's lineup
    Trevor Story is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Story went 0-for-4 in his return to the lineup Tuesday. With the quick turnaround, the Rockies are likely just being cautious about his injured finger. Cristhian Adames is playing shortstop and batting second. Wednesday, 10:12 am
    7:10 pm @LAD
  • Ahmed not in Wednesday's lineup
    Nick Ahmed is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Phillies.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against right-hander Zach Eflin. Jean Segura will start at shortstop while Phil Gosselin will play second base. Wednesday, 10:03 am
  • Cozart not in Wednesday's lineup
    Zack Cozart is not in Wednesday's lineup versus the Cubs.

    Advice: He's presumably getting a breather. Jose Peraza will start at shortstop while Billy Hamilton will slide into the leadoff spot. Wednesday, 7:15 am
  • Reyes hitless in first game in Double-A
    Jose Reyes went 0-for-4 with a run scored Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: After reaching on a fielder's choice, Reyes scored from second base on a single by prospect shortstop Amed Rosario. Reyes is now 0-for-9 since signing a minor league deal with the Mets over the weekend, but he's not concerned. "My body feels perfect," said Reyes. "I just need my timing, and some more action at third base." Reyes could join the Mets as soon as this weekend against the Cubs. Wednesday, 6:13 am

  • Giants fall to A's despite Crawford's 5 RBI
    Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with five RBI in Tuesday's 13-11 loss to the A's.

    Advice: Crawford finished a home run shy of the cycle. As for the runs he drove in, the shortstop notched a two-run double in the third and a three-run triple in the sixth. For the season, Crawford is slashing .268/.342/.415 with six homers and 49 RBI over 265 at-bats. Tuesday, 11:52 pm
  • Correa launches three-run homer vs Angels
    Carlos Correa was a monster in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Angels, finishing 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and four total RBI.

    Advice: Correa jumped the Astros out to a 3-0 lead when he smacked a three-run homer off Tim Lincecum in the first inning. He would drive in his fourth run of the game with an RBI ground out in the seventh inning. The 21-year-old phenom has been scalding the ball of late and has picked up five doubles in his last 10 games. In that same space, he has driven in 14 runs. For the season, Correa is slashing .265/.363/.474 with 13 homers, 47 RBI and eight steals across 283 at-bats. Tuesday, 10:54 pm
  • Javier Baez smacks grand slam Tuesday
    Javier Baez was hitless in his first six trips to the plate but launched a grand slam in his seventh at-bat in the 15th inning of Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Now that's how you turn your night around. Baez lifted a JJ Hoover offering over the center field wall, giving the Cubs some cushion in the extra-inning marathon. The free swinger is hitting just .256/.301/.430 with 40 strikeouts over 172 at-bats, but he's slugged seven homers. Tuesday, 9:03 pm

  • Aledmys Diaz (eye) will miss a few games
    Aledmys Diaz is expected to miss a few games until the swelling above his right eye subsides.

    Advice: Diaz is with the club and in good spirits after getting struck above the eye by a foul ball during Monday's game against the Royals. He went through the full concussion protocol after Monday's game, with everything coming back negative. Greg Garcia is starting in his place on Tuesday and should continue to see action until Diaz is cleared to return. Tuesday, 4:10 pm

  • Story (finger) returns to Rockies' lineup
    Trevor Story (finger) has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Story tested out his injured finger before the game and it appears to have held up just fine. He'll bat second in a premium matchup at home against Blue Jays' southpaw JA Happ. Tuesday, 4:00 pm
    7:10 pm @LAD
  • Story will test finger during BP on Tuesday
    Trevor Story will test out his injured finger by throwing during batting practice on Tuesday, and if all feels well he'll be in the Rockies starting lineup.

    Advice: Otherwise, he'll get another day of rest with Cristhian Adames likely in his stead. Story sustained a bruised right middle finger when he was drilled by a pitch in the ninth inning on Sunday. Tuesday, 2:23 pm

  • Aledmys Diaz (eye) to undergo further testing
    Aledmys Diaz (eye) will go to the hospital Monday night for further testing.

    Advice: Diaz was struck above the right eye by a foul ball in the ninth inning Monday versus the Royals, but the Cardinals don't believe he suffered a fracture to his orbital bone. Still, they'll send him for more tests to be on the safe side. The Cardinals should have an update on his status Tuesday. Monday, 8:40 pm
    5:15 pm vs Mil
  • Aledmys Diaz exits after foul ball hits face
    Aledmys Diaz exited Monday's game against the Royals in the ninth inning after fouling a ball off his face.

    Advice: Diaz hit a foul ball which bounced off home plate and hit him in the forehead area. He walked off the field with a towel on his face. The Cardinals should pass along an update after the game. Monday, 7:56 pm

  • Reyes plays second game in minors for Mets
    Jose Reyes went 0-for-2 with a walk in his second game with Low-A Brooklyn on Monday.

    Advice: Reyes played third base for seven innings and committed a fielding error. He's slated to move up to Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday and will likely join the Mets in about a week. He's expected to function as the team's leadoff man while playing multiple positions. Monday, 6:42 pm

  • Trevor Story (finger) not in Monday's lineup
    Trevor Story (finger) is not in Monday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

    7:10 pm @LAD
  • Reyes to move up to Double-A on Tuesday
    Jose Reyes will join Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday.

    Advice: Reyes went 0-for-3 with a walk and played six innings at third base Sunday in his first game with Low-A Brooklyn. He'll play another game at third base with the Cyclones on Monday before moving up to face advanced competition. Look for him to join the Mets in the next week or so. Monday, 1:46 pm

    Corey Seager is getting the day off Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It's a quick turnaround for the Dodgers, who are playing at 12:35 PM ET after a night game on Sunday. Seager has appeared in all but one game this season with his last day off coming on April 15. The 22-year-old has contributed All-Star numbers this year with 16 HR and a .298 batting average in 299 at-bats. Chris Taylor will handle shortstop duties Monday while batting eighth against Bucs left-hander Francisco Liriano. Monday, 7:07 am
  • Trevor Story diagnosed with bruised finger
    Trevor Story was diagnosed with a bruised right middle finger after being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning on Sunday.

  • Trevor Story heading for X-rays on his hand
    Trevor Story is heading for X-rays on his hand after being drilled by a pitch leading off the ninth inning against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

    Advice: Story was drilled leading off the ninth inning, then came around to score the game-winning run on Mark Reynolds' walk-off blast. The Rockies are hopeful that his hand isn't broken, but it remains a very real possibility at this time. Expect an update on his status shortly. Sunday, 5:21 pm

  • Diaz blasts three-run home run on Saturday
    Aledmys Diaz blasted a three-run shot for his 10th homer of the season on Saturday, finishing the day 1-for-4 with a walk.

    Advice: Diaz is hitting .306/.365/.500 with 48 runs and 39 RBI. Those are great numbers for a shortstop who was available very late in drafts this spring. He got an opportunity to play when Jhonny Peralta got hurt and he made the most of it, keeping the gig when Peralta returned. Saturday, 10:59 pm
    5:15 pm vs Mil
  • Correa homers and doubles as Astros win
    Carlos Correa hit his 12th home run of the season and added an RBI double on Saturday in Kansas City.

    Advice: Correa finished the day 2-for-4 with a walk. He boosted his slash line to .265/.363/.467 with the solid day at the plate. The 21-year-old second-year player hasn't quite matched the stats from his rookie season yet but his future is very bright. He has 36 runs, 42 RBI and 8 steals to go along with the 12 home runs. Saturday, 8:19 pm
  • Villar has three hits, stolen base vs. Nats
    Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored Saturday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Villar's breakout season continues, with Saturday's three-hit game counting as his fifth in his last 10 contests. He also leads the league with his 26 stolen bases. The 25-year-old is batting .299/.380/.429 overall. Saturday, 6:34 pm
  • Russell hits three-run homer against Marlins
    Addison Russell hit a three-run home run in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.

    Advice: The homer was Russell's seventh of the year, giving him 40 RBI and 29 runs scored. The second-year shortstop is batting .245/.338/.392 in 68 games this season. Saturday, 5:35 pm
  • Reyes to hit leadoff for Mets
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Jose Reyes will take over as the team's leadoff man when he arrives from the minors.

    Advice: Curtis Granderson has been the primary leadoff man over the past two seasons, but he'll be moved to the middle of the order. Reyes is expected to see time at third base in the minors and potentially even the outfield in order to prepare him for a super utility role. The expectation is that he could be with the big club in 7-10 days. Asdrubal Cabrera is expected to remain the primary shortstop, but the Mets are hopeful that Reyes' speed will bring a new dimension to their lineup. By the way, David Wright still leads the Mets with three steals. Saturday, 1:42 pm

  • Mets officially sign infielder Jose Reyes
    Mets signed INF Jose Reyes to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Reyes became a free agent at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday and it didn't take him long to officially reunite with the Mets. The plan calls for him to report to Class A Brooklyn on Sunday, where he's expected to play multiple positions before eventually joining the Mets in a utility role. The 33-year-old owns a .709 OPS since the start of 2014 and is coming off a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife, but the Mets are willing to take a chance on him to add some athleticism to their roster. "As I have expressed in the past, I deeply regret the incident that occurred and remain remorseful and apologetic to my family," Reyes said in a statement. "I have completed the counseling required by MLB, have been in ongoing therapy, and will continue with counseling going forward. I appreciate the Mets organization for believing in me and providing the opportunity to come back home to New York." Saturday, 11:18 am

  • Jose Reyes-to-Mets expected Saturday
    Marc Carig of Newsday reports that the Mets are expected to officially sign Jose Reyes on Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: Multiple reporters are saying the same, as a reunion is basically seen as a foregone conclusion at this point. Reyes won't officially become a free agent until 1 p.m. ET, but Mets manager Terry Collins was already talking Friday about how the team plans to use him. The Mets would only be responsible for paying the veteran infielder a prorated portion of the major league minimum. Reyes was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week after completing a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. Saturday, 8:24 am

  • Escobar hits first home run of season
    Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 and hit his first home run of the season on Friday night.

    Advice: Escobar has been a lost cause at the plate this year, batting .252/.276/.311 with 25 runs and 19 RBI. His one strength is his 10 stolen bases. He has averaged four home runs per year in his career, so tonight's bomb was a rarity. Friday, 10:19 pm
  • Mets expected to sign Reyes as soon as Sat.
    Anthony DiComo of hears from multiple major league sources that the Mets expect to sign Jose Reyes as soon as Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: Reyes was placed on release waivers on Thursday after the Rockies failed to find a trade for him and he'll officially become a free agent at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday. The Mets were originally seen as an unlikely landing spot, but a reunion has quickly picked up steam over the past few days. The Mets would only be responsible for a prorated portion of the major league minimum, so they are willing to take a chance on him even though he isn't the player he once was and recently served a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. The expectation is that Reyes would be sent to the minors to get some at-bats while also working at third base. He would likely function in a super-utility role in his return to the Mets.

    Nick Ahmed (hip) is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup again Friday.

    Advice: Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that Ahmed is dealing with "hip issues," but he's expected to return on Saturday. Jean Segura will play shortstop while Phil Gosselin will start at second base. Friday, 4:36 pm
  • Report: Mets targeting Jose Reyes at 3B
    If the Mets sign Jose Reyes, Newsday's Marc Carig believes the team will immediately send him to the minor leagues to work at third base.

    Advice: A Mets/Reyes union was floated out as a possibility earlier this week and now it looks like it might actually happen. Carig said he'd be "surprised at this point if Reyes ends up somewhere else." The Royals have also been linked to Reyes but the Mets have a more pressing need at third base, where David Wright (neck surgery) remains out indefinitely. Reyes has never played third base in a major league game but if he can make the transition, he'd be a big upgrade over light-hitting Wilmer Flores. Thursday, 4:28 pm

  • Eduardo Nunez getting a breather Thursday
    Eduardo Nunez is getting the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and bat second versus Phillies right-hander Jerad Eickhoff. Nunez has run into some natural regression over the last few weeks, but he still boasts a .313/.345/.472 season slash line with nine home runs and 17 RBI in 62 total games. Thursday, 8:25 am

  • Corey Seager hits 16th home run
    Corey Seager went 3-for-4 and hit his 16th homer Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: 16 homers in 287 at-bats for Seager. Last year, he had 13 in 421 at-bats while playing in the PCL, so it seemed like it would be a while before he was going to chase 20 homers, much less 30, in the majors. Alas, here he is, on pace for 35. We don't expect him to keep that up, but he has a better chance of maintaining his current .289 average. Wednesday, 10:55 pm
  • Aledmys Diaz goes 3-for-4 with HR vs. Cubs
    Aledmys Diaz went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Wednesday in the Cardinals' 7-2 defeat of the Cubs.

    Advice: Diaz singled off Jake Arrieta in the first and fifth before cranking a two-run shot off Carl Edwards Jr. in the sixth. The 25-year-old shortstop has met some natural regression, but he still boasts an impressive .310/.362/.496 overall batting line with nine home runs and 35 RBI in 67 total games this season.

  • Castro slugs walkoff homer to down Rockies
    Starlin Castro slugged a walkoff solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday as the Yankees beat the visiting Rockies 9-8.

  • Correa walks off Angels with two-run single
    Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with a home run and a two-run, walk-off single to give the Astros a 3-2 win over the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Correa hit a solo home run in the fifth inning before coming to the plate with the bases loaded and no outs in the bottom of the ninth. He roped a Huston Street pitch to the right-center field wall to plate two and give the Astros the come-from-behind win. Correa has heated up considerably in recent days, going 8-for-21 with three homers, seven RBI and five runs scored in his last six games. The 21-year-old is batting .263/.361/.452 in 68 games overall. Tuesday, 9:50 pm
  • Cozart has triple, homer in win over Rangers
    Zack Cozart went 2-for-4 with a triple, home run and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Cozart lined a two-run triple to center in the fifth inning before hitting a solo homer in the seventh. The home run was his 11th of the season, and it was his first triple this year. The 30-year-old is batting .284/.325/.513 in 62 games, on pace for the best offensive season of his career. Tuesday, 8:26 pm
  • Carlos Correa hits 10th homer for Astros
    Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, three RBI and a walk Monday as the Astros topped the Angels 10-7.

    Advice: Correa has walked in five straight games. Last month, he had one stretch in which he went 14 straight games without a walk. Hopefully, it means he's seeing the ball better and his power numbers will start to pick back up. He's been a disappointment for fantasy purposes, but the upside hasn't gone anywhere. Monday, 9:24 pm
