  • Michael Saunders hits seventh in Jays debut
    Michael Saunders is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the Blue Jays lineup against the Rays on Saturday.

    Advice: It's Saunders' first game as a member of the Blue Jays. He draws a dream matchup against Erasmo Ramirez in this outing and should be targeted in all daily leagues where he's available. Rotoworld.com

  • Zobrist to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery
    Ben Zobrist is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

    Advice: The typical time frame for recovery is 4-to-6 weeks. The Athletics have enough moving parts and versatility to overcome his absence in the short term. Eric Sogard should see most of the work at second base while Zobrist is on the shelf. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Hamilton willing to sacrifice $6 million
    Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that Josh Hamilton is willing to sacrifice $6 million of guaranteed money in the proposed deal to the Rangers.

    Advice: With the Angels reportedly willing to take on up to $68 million of the $80 million remaining on his deal, that could put the Rangers expense at only $7 million. Hamilton is also expected to receive an opt-out clause in his deal after the 2016 season Rotoworld.com

    Athletics placed INF/OF Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury.

    Advice: Zobrist had been attempting to play through the injury, but the A's have opted to play it safe and avoid the risk of further injury. There's a chance that he could require arthroscopic knee surgery. Rotoworld.com

  • Jay Bruce not in Reds lineup on Saturday
    Jay Bruce is not in the Reds starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Cubs.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for the struggling outfielder who is hitting just .164/.261/.328 with three homers and nine RBI on the year. Brennan Boesch is getting the start in his place and batting fifth against opposing right-hander Jake Arrieta. Rotoworld.com

  • Reds release veteran Dan Johnson from minors
    Reds released 1B Dan Johnson.

    Advice: The 35-year-old failed to earn a spot on the Astros Opening Day bench, then hit .069 (2-for-29) in his nine games at Triple-A Louisville. It's unclear if he'll explore opportunities elsewhere or decide to hang up his spikes. Rotoworld.com

  • Domonic Brown nearing return to Phillies
    Domonic Brown (Achilles) said Friday that he feels "outstanding" health wise as he nears his return to the Phillies next week.

    Advice: Brown has been on an extended minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Lehigh Valley where he has gone 3-for-24 with three walks and five strikeouts. The Phillies wanted him to get as many at-bats as possible to get his timing back before rejoining the big league club. His last game with the Iron Pigs should be Sunday or Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Maxwell stays hot with two-run homer vs COL
    Justin Maxwell hit a two-run home run and finished 2-for-3 in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Maxwell's been swinging a happy bat as of late. On Tuesday, he tripled and homered, scoring three times. On Thursday, he hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th to slay the Dodgers. And on Friday, he launched a massive, 436-foot home run off of Eddie Butler in the second inning. Over 33 at-bats, Maxwell is now hitting .333/.436/.606. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 12:15 am
  • Belt doubles, knocks in run against Rockies
    Brandon Belt hit an RBI double and finished a perfect 3-for-3 in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: The run-scoring double off of Eddie Butler in the fifth inning was Belt's first of the season. Belt, who hit 12 home runs last season, is still searching for a home run in 2015. After a horrible start to April, he's begun to find his groove. His current five-game hitting streak has moved his average from .077 to a slightly more respectable .238. We like Belt as a player, but he'll need to keep this hot streak going before he can be deployed with confidence in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Heyward smacks second homer of season
    Jason Heyward hit his second home run of the season in Friday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: The third inning home run off of Matt Garza would be Heyward's only hit, as he finished 1-for-5. Heyward has struggled with his new team, but he's shown signs of life over the last three games, recording hits in each of them. He'll have to continue the recent trend if he wants to continue hitting second. Outside of a 27-homer campaign in 2012, Heyward has never hit more than 18 home runs in a season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:28 pm
  • Braun goes hit-less in loss to Cardinals
    Ryan Braun went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Braun also struck out twice. The former MVP has yet to hit anything other than a single. With 58 at-bats in the books, the small sample size is growing larger day-by-day. Braun's slashing just .241/.279/.293. The extra-base knocks should come eventually, but his days as a middle-of-the-lineup star could be fading. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Semien goes 2-for-5, homers
    Making his first start in the leadoff spot, Marcus Semien went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer Friday against the Astros.

    Advice: With Sam Fuld on the bench, it's the first time this year that Semien has batted higher than eighth. He'll probably return to the bottom of the order on Saturday, but it's possible he could get a long look in the two hole if he continues hitting. He has six hits in his last three games, raising his average to .279. Rotoworld.com

  • Carl Crawford homers, doubles
    Carl Crawford homered and doubled in a winning cause Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Crawford has come under a little early fire, in part because Alex Guerrero needs more playing time and could be an alternative in left field. Crawford, though, likely remains the team's best option there against righties. He was off to an ugly start going into this one, though, with a .216 average and just one RBI in 37 at-bats. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • David Freese hits fourth homer
    David Freese hit his fourth homer versus the Rangers in Friday's win.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot off Keone Kela. Freese had just 10 homers in 134 games last year and nine in 138 games in 2013, so this has been quite the early outburst from him. We still wouldn't suggest picking him up in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Beckham cranks third homer of season
    Tim Beckham hit his third home run of the season when he went yard against Jeff Francis in the seventh inning of Friday's romp over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Beckham's been a pinch-hit wizard, with both of his other homers this season coming off the bench. While Beckham did pinch-hit for David DeJesus against the Blue Jays on Friday, the home run came in his second at-bat. He finished the game 2-for-2 with two RBI and a run scored. A former No. 1 overall pick, his strong bench bat would probably be fun to own just for the sake of awesomeness. Over 36 AB's, he's hitting .278/.325/.583. It's not quite enough at-bats to say he's a must-add, but if he's floating on the waiver wire, keep an eye on him. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Cron goes 3-for-4
    C.J. Cron went 3-for-4 with a double Friday against the Rangers.

    Advice: With Josh Hamilton departing, this sure would be a good time for Cron to step up his game. He's currently batting .209 with one homer and just two walks in 43 at-bats. The Angels want Cron to be their DH and Matt Joyce to be their primary left fielder going forward, but they might need to end up replacing one of the two before the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Loney homers in return from disabled list
    James Loney hit a two-run home run off of R.A. Dickey in the fourth inning of Friday's blowout win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Loney had not played since April 6th, as the first baseman's been recovering from a right oblique strain. He came back in style, swatting the big fly in the fourth inning of a game in which the Rays would score 12 runs on 13 hits. Loney hit .290/.386/.380 in 2014. He has a bit of pop in his bat, but he isn't worth owning in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Reyes does not record hit in big loss to Rays
    Jose Reyes went 0-for-3 in Friday's blowout loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Reyes, who is dealing with a small fracture in his left rib, went hit-less against the Rays and has not recorded a hit in his last seven at-bats. Stretching beyond the last few games, he has just one hit since April 21, spanning 15 at-bats. While he has avoided a stay on the disabled list for the time being, it's not a surprise that the speedy shortstop has struggled of late. Reyes is hitting just .250/.268/.308 and has limited fantasy value until he starts getting on base more. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:52 pm
  • Nick Ahmed goes 0-for-3 in loss
    Nick Ahmed went 0-for-3 before being removed for a pinch-hitter Friday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Ahmed is quite the defender, but he's batting .128 with one extra-base hit, one RBI and one run scored through 47 at-bats. He can't remain quite this bad, but he's likely to be the NL's worst offensive regular for however long the Diamondbacks stick with him. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Travis hits solo homer in blowout loss
    Devon Travis hit a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: That's home runs in back-to-back games for the infielder. He had been dealing with a rib injury suffered after he was hit by a pitch on April 19, but appears to be swinging fine. Though the Blue Jays went on to lose 12-3, they must be thrilled to have Travis back in the lineup. In the early going, he's hitting .375/.435/.732 with five home runs, 16 RBI and 12 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez homers in win over Orioles
    Hanley Ramirez hit a solo home run in Friday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Ramirez went back-to-back with teammate David Ortiz in the fifth inning. He would finish the game 2-for-5. The former Red Sox prospect-turned-Dodger-turned Red Sox player is loving life in Boston right now and is slashing .274/.333/.565 with five home runs, 13 RBI and 11 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Logan Morrison hits first homer
    Logan Morrison hit his first homer Friday off the Twins' Phil Hughes.

    Advice: Morrison hadn't had an extra-base hit or an RBI in 51 at-bats entering this one. On the other hand, he's struck out just six times, so one would think the hits would start coming soon. The Mariners don't really have another first baseman, so they'll be slow to pull the plug on Morrison if his slump lingers. They could put Seth Smith there if necessary. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:27 pm
  • Davis' late solo home run not enough for O's
    Chris Davis hit a solo home run in the eighth inning of Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Davis' solo homer off of Junichi Tazawa in the eighth inning drew the Orioles to within 7-5, but they were unable to muster another run off the Red Sox bullpen. The home run was his third of the season, the RBI his eighth. He would finish 1-for-3 with two runs scored, plus a walk and a strikeout. Davis has now struck out 27 times in 16 games. He'll crank a fair number of home runs, but given his propensity to whiff, his average figures to remain in the low-.200's. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Saunders activated from disabled list
    Blue Jays activated OF Michael Saunders from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Saunders had minor knee surgery during spring training, but has made a quick recovery and is ready to get his season back on track. With his blend of power and speed and playing in the friendly confines of the Rogers Centre, he could be very relevant in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Angels will not receive player from Rangers
    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Angels would not receive a player in return in the rumored Josh Hamilton deal, it would strictly be for cash considerations.

    Advice: It looks like it will be a move strictly to get Hamilton out of Los Angeles and back in Texas where he flourished in the past. The Rangers are expected to pay less than $15 million of the $80 million remaining on Hamilton's deal through the 2017 season. Rosenthal cautions that there are still several hurdles to clear and the talks could still fall apart, it isn't yet a done deal. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers close to acquiring Josh Hamilton
    TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are close to acquiring Josh Hamilton from the Angels.

    Advice: A return to the Rangers is one destination that seems to make sense, though Sullivan notes that there remains a lot of work to be done before a trade is officially announced, which may not happen until Monday. Reports from SI.com and Ken Rosenthal first noted that the Angels and Hamilton were close to parting ways. The Halos will surely have to pick up a large portion of the $83 million remaining on Hamilton's contract. Rotoworld.com

  • Angels 'close to parting' with Josh Hamilton
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels are "close to parting" with Josh Hamilton.

    Advice: It confirms a report from SI.com. It's unclear at this point how the relationship will be dissolved, but the two sides have been discussing various scenarios to resolve the dispute, including a trade. Hamilton still has $83 million remaining on his contract, and the Angels will surely have to end up eating a lot of that. The outfielder is working his way back from shoulder surgery and isn't going to be ready to play for a while, regardless of where he ends up. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Swisher (knees) to be re-evaluated Mon.
    Nick Swisher (knees) will be re-evaluated by the Indians on Monday after playing two rehab games with Triple-A Columbus over the weekend.

    Advice: Assuming he doesn't have a setback, he should be activated from the disabled list at that point. Swisher will play right field once back with the Tribe, as he believes that will put less stress on his surgically-repaired knees. Rotoworld.com

  • Saunders (knee) expected to be activated Sat.
    Michael Saunders (knee) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: The Blue Jays had been considering bringing him back Friday, but with the Rays sending a lefty (Drew Smyly) to the mound, it made sense to wait another day. Saunders got a late start to the season after having minor knee surgery, but he's an interesting fantasy option in deeper leagues with Rogers Centre as his new home. Rotoworld.com

  • Saunders (knee) to play another rehab game
    Michael Saunders (knee) will play another rehab game with High-A Dunedin on Friday.

  • James Loney returns from disabled list

  • Chris Davis fans four times against Jays
    Chris Davis took home the Golden Sombrero after striking out all four times he was up Thursday against the Blue Jays.

    Ben Zobrist (knee) indicated after Thursday's game that he's feeling better every day, but he still needs to run the bases pregame and show he can do various other activities before returning to the starting lineup.

    Advice: Zobrist appeared as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning of Thursday's contest and said that his knee still felt "weird" as he trotted down to first base. While it's encouraging that he's improving by the day, a full return still looks to be a couple of days away. Rotoworld.com

    Justin Maxwell sent the Giants home happy with a walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th inning against the Dodgers on Thursday.

    Advice: The Dodgers blew a one-run lead in the bottom of the ninth, then blew the tie game the next inning. Maxwell, starting in right field, finished 2-for-5 with the RBI single. In 35 plate appearances, the 31-year-old is hitting .300/.400/.500 with five RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Heyward goes 2-for-4 against Nats
    Jason Heyward went 2-for-4 on Thursday, giving him his first multihit game since he went 3-for-5 on Opening Day.

    Advice: Heyward's .213 average would be less of a problem if he were drawing his typical number of walks, but he's worked just one in his first 61 at-bats. The Cardinals are winning and can stay patient, but at some point, they might decide they'd be better off with Kolten Wong hitting second. Rotoworld.com

  • Maxwell's productive night leads SFG to a win
    Justin Maxwell walked, tripled, homered, drove in two runs, and scored three times in four plate appearances in a win versus the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Maxwell tripled and scored in the second inning, grounded into a fielder's choice and scored in the fourth, then slugged a two-run home run in the eighth inning off of Pedro Baez. Maxwell, who entered the game with just one extra-base hit in 22 plate appearances, has been used mostly as a pinch-hitter with the occasional start in right field against a left-handed starter. If he continues to hit well, he could force a platoon in left field with Norichika Aoki once Hunter Pence returns and reclaims his spot in right field. Rotoworld.com

The shortstop-turned-outfielder has been everything the Red Sox paid for in the early part of the season, batting .269/.328/.558 with five home runs and 12 RBI in 13 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Brown (Achilles) to use full rehab allotment
    Domonic Brown (Achilles) is expected to use his full 20-day allotment during his rehab assignment.

    Advice: Brown hasn't had issues with his left Achilles, but he's not hitting much so the Phillies plan to leave him at Triple-A Lehigh Valley in hopes that he figures things out. "It's kind of up to him when he finds his stride to get hot with the bat," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "I think that would be important for him." Brown's 20th rehab day is next Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Hamilton to go to extended spring this week
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will report to extended spring training this week.

    Advice: Hamilton will remain there for 2-3 weeks before then beginning an official rehab assignment. The Angels have mapped out a plan that will have the outfielder back with them in June, although it's not a given that he'll be with the club at that point. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported over the weekend that the two sides are discussing various scenarios to resolve their dispute following Hamilton's recent drug relapse. Rotoworld.com

    Nick Swisher (knees) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

    Advice: It's not clear at this point how many games Swisher will need before the Indians activate him, but he's already played in a bunch of extended spring training contests. Swisher will play right field for the Tribe once he's back with the big club. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It appears to just be a day of rest. The Giants are going with Buster Posey at first base and Andrew Susac behind the plate with Belt out. Rotoworld.com

  • Saunders (knee, hamstring) could debut Fri.
    Michael Saunders (knee, hamstring) could debut Friday.

    Advice: That's what Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters on Tuesday afternoon. Saunders has been out all season recovering from February knee surgery, and he injured his hamstring earlier this month on a minor league rehab assignment. But everything has gone smoothly over the past week. The 28-year-old outfielder should carry deep-league value in the potent Toronto offense. Rotoworld.com

  • Loney (oblique) expects weekend return
    James Loney (oblique) expects to be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: Loney suffered a mild right oblique strain prior to the second game of the season, but he took batting practice Tuesday without incident. He expects to play one minor league rehab game before returning. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:12 pm
  • Travis (rib) not in Tuesday's lineup
    Devon Travis (rib) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

    Advice: Travis had to leave Sunday's game after he was hit in the side by a pitch. X-rays ruled out a fracture, but he's presumably still dealing with some soreness. Consider him day-to-day. Ryan Goins will fill in at second base. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:59 pm
  • Jose Reyes (rib) back in Blue Jays' lineup
    Jose Reyes (rib) is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

    Advice: Reyes is dealing with a small fracture in his left rib cage and will reportedly try to hit exclusively from the right side of the plate for now. There's no telling if things will get worse or whether his production will suffer, so we wouldn't say he's out of the woods yet. Still, he has at least avoided a trip to the disabled list. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley Ramirez (illness) in Tuesday's lineup
    Hanley Ramirez (illness) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

    Advice: Ramirez made an early exit from Monday's Patriots' Day game against the Orioles after just two innings due to dizziness brought on by a cold, but he's feeling a lot better now. He'll bat cleanup against Chris Archer. Rotoworld.com

  • Angels mapping out comeback plan for Hamilton
    Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Angels are mapping out a comeback plan for Josh Hamilton (shoulder) which could have him back with the team in early June.

    Advice: Hamilton, who is working his way back from shoulder surgery, is expected to report to the team's complex in Arizona "sooner rather than later" for two to three weeks of work in extended spring training. He would then go out on an official minor league rehab assignment. This doesn't necessarily mean that he will play for the Angels again, as his future with the team is still very much in question following his recent drug relapse. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported over the weekend that the two sides are discussing various scenarios to resolve the dispute, including a trade. Rotoworld.com

    Marcus Semien went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday in a win over the Angels.

    Advice: Semien went yard off of Matt Shoemaker in the fourth inning to boost the Athletics' lead to 5-3. The shortstop had been in a bit of a funk, going just 2-for-17 in his previous five games entering Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Braun slugs homer, but Brewers fall to Reds
    Ryan Braun provided the Brewers their only run with a ninth-inning solo home run in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: The Brewers entered the bottom of the ninth trailing 6-0, so Braun's solo homer -- his first of the season -- off of Burke Badenhop barely made a dent. Braun has been off to a slow start this season, currently slashing .238/.273/.310 in 44 trips to the dish. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben Zobrist (knee) sidelined a few more days
    Ben Zobrist (knee) will be sidelined for at least a couple more days after being given a cortisone shot on Monday.

    Advice: Zobrist has dealt with some cartilage issues in his left knee for a while, and they flared up on him Sunday, forcing him from the game. The good news is that he had an MRI and it didn't reveal any ligament issues. The bad news is that it's possible he could require surgery if the cortisone shot doesn't help. It would just be of the cleanup variety, but an operation would obviously sideline Zobrist for at least a few weeks. Rotoworld.com

  • Swisher (knees) close to rehab assignment
    Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said Monday that Nick Swisher (knees) will begin a rehab assignment in the next couple days.

    Advice: Also noteworthy is that Swisher will return to the Tribe as a right fielder, as he believes that will put less stress on his surgically-repaired knees. Swisher has been playing games in extended spring training for a couple weeks, so he shouldn't need too many rehab contests before being activated. A return before the end of the month seems possible. Rotoworld.com

    Hanley Ramirez (illness) expects to play Tuesday in Boston's series-opener versus the Rays.

    Advice: Ramirez was removed from Monday's Patriots' Day game against the Orioles after just two innings due to dizziness brought on by a cold. It was a wet, nasty morning and early afternoon at Boston's Fenway Park. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley Ramirez exits Monday due to illness
    Hanley Ramirez left Monday's game due to illness.

    Advice: There's a flu bug going around some MLB clubhouses and Hanley apparent caught it. He grounded out to first base in the bottom of the first inning and was then replaced in the top of the third by Allen Craig. Ramirez, who already has five homers and 12 RBI in 12 games with Boston, can be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley removed Monday with apparent injury
    Hanley Ramirez was pulled from Monday's game against the Orioles with an apparent injury.

    Advice: It's not clear what happened. Hanley grounded out to first base in the bottom of the first inning and took the field in the top of the second, but Allen Craig was in left field to open the top of the third. There should be an update soon from the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • James Loney (oblique) set for rehab games
    James Loney (oblique) will play a rehab game or two this week for High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Loney is eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday, and it sounds like he'll be ready. "It's been hard, just sitting there and watching games," Loney said of the first DL stint of his career. "It goes by. It's just one of those things." He suffered a strained oblique during batting practice before the Rays' second game of the season. Rotoworld.com

    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday that Jose Reyes could return to the Blue Jays lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Reyes will be limited to hitting only from the right side of the plate as he's dealing with a small fracture in his left rib cage, but it looks as though he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:15 pm
  • X-rays confirm no fracture for Travis (rib)
    X-rays confirmed that Devon Travis did not suffer a left rib fracture.

    Advice: Travis had to leave Sunday's game following a hit by pitch, but he managed to escape with just a bruise. The Blue Jays are considering the second baseman day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:02 pm
  • Crawford (illness) still under the weather
    Carl Crawford (illness) might not be available off the bench Sunday.

    Advice: In fact, he might not come to the ballpark at all. Crawford is under the weather and was given IV fluids on Saturday. The Dodgers are off Monday, so they seem likely to just tell the outfielder to get some extra rest before joining them for their road trip beginning Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Devon Travis exits game after HBP in side
    Devon Travis left Sunday's game versus the Braves after being hit in the left side by a pitch.

    Advice: The initial diagnosis is a left rib contusion, although he seems like to be sent for X-rays. Travis stayed in the game initially but appeared to aggravated the injury on a dive back into first base on a pickoff attempt. The second baseman looked to be in quite a bit of pain as he exited the field. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Belt getting start in LF Sunday
    Brandon Belt is starting Sunday's game versus the Diamondbacks in left field.

    Advice: It's his first start at the position since 2012, as Giants manager Bruce Bochy is obviously willing to shake things up in an effort to get his struggling offense going. Buster Posey is starting at first base Sunday, while Andrew Susac is behind the plate. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 10:06 am
  • Braun leads off with pair of singles
    In his first career start leading off, Ryan Braun hit two singles against the Pirates.

    Advice: Braun finished the game 2-for-3. While the singles are nice, they marked a continuation of an odd start for Braun. After smacking 30 doubles and 19 home runs last season, Braun has yet to notch his first extra-base hit of the 2015 season. The power should come eventually, but it should be remembered that the former MVP underwent experimental thumb surgery in October. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Davis slugs second home run of year
    Chris Davis slugged his second home run of the season Saturday in the Orioles' win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: It was a two-run opposite field shot that sailed over the Green Monster. Davis also singled, though he struck out in his three other plate appearances. The 29-year-old is batting .256/.310/.487 with seven RBI and 18 strikeouts in 10 games this season for the O's. Rotoworld.com

  • Carl Crawford out sick Saturday vs. Rockies
    Carl Crawford is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday due to an illness.

    Advice: Andre Ethier will take over in left field. Crawford's fantasy contributions have been minimal this season (.258, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 0 SB) so it's not the end of the world. He could be back for the series finale Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:22 pm
  • Heyward connects for solo HR vs. Reds
    Jason Heyward connected for a solo homer Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: It was his first home run of the season and his only hit in four at-bats on Saturday. Hitting .227 through 10 games, Heyward is off to a slow start with his new team, but this isn't something out of the ordinary. He came into Saturday's action with a .729 OPS between March and April for his career. Things should get better as the calendar flips to May and beyond. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Hamilton filed for a divorce in February
    Court documents show Josh Hamilton has filed for divorce from his wife Katie in Tarrant County, Texas.

    Advice: Hamilton filed for divorce in late February, around the same time reports surfaced of his latest drug relapse. Hamilton was able to avoid suspension from Major League Baseball, much to the chagrin of his own team. The Angels don't want to pay the underachieving 33-year-old outfielder and have been publicly feuding with him since the spring. He hasn't even been healthy enough to play thanks to a shoulder injury. Los Angeles' five-year deal with Hamilton is looking worse by the day. Rotoworld.com

    Ryan Braun is serving as the Brewers leadoff hitter for the first time in his career on Saturday.

    Advice: Braun has struggled in the early going, slashing just .226/.250/.226, so perhaps the move was made to try to get him going. With Carlos Gomez sidelined, the Brewers are in desperate need of a spark atop their lineup. Rotoworld.com

  • Carl Crawford (ankle) goes 1-for-5 in return
    Carl Crawford (ankle) returned to the Dodgers lineup on Friday, going 1-for-5 in a victory over the Rockies.

    Advice: Crawford sat out Wednesday's contest after jamming his ankle on Tuesday, but the injury appears to have been very minor. The veteran outfielder is off to a bit of a slow start in 2015, slashing .258/.281/.323 with one RBI and zero stolen bases in his first nine games. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:19 am
  • Brandon Belt goes 0-for-3 against D'backs
    Brandon Belt went 0-for-3 as the Giants' No. 6 hitter in Friday's loss.

    Advice: Before Hunter Pence got hurt, the Giants indicated that Belt could open the season batting third. However, that injury rearranged the lineup and Belt has hit fourth twice, fifth four times and now sixth once, going 2-for-26 in the process. His bat will warm up, but his fantasy value has already taken a hit. Hopefully, things will get better for the Giants lineup as a whole once Pence returns. Rotoworld.com

  • Molina has bases clearing double in win
    Yadier Molina had a bases-clearing double in a win over the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: Molina played hero in the bottom of the seventh by ripping a Johnny Cueto pitch into the left field corner to plate three runs and put the Cardinals ahead for good. The 32-year-old backstop got off to a slow start, but he has shown some signs of life over the past few days. He's now batting .281 (9-for-32) with a .361 on-base percentage. Rotoworld.com

It remains a murky situation, but Hamilton had lunch with several teammates on Friday and indicated his desire to return to the team. He isn't expected to be ready to take the field until sometime in May. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The Blue Jays will wait until after Monday's off day to see if Reyes is feeling well enough to play through a small fracture in his left rib cage. If he's still in pain Tuesday, they'll place him on the disabled list. Ryan Goins is expected to fill in at shortstop while Reyes is out. Rotoworld.com

    Devon Travis is batting leadoff versus Julio Teheran and the Braves on Friday.

  • Jose Reyes dealing with fracture in rib cage
    An MRI has revealed that Jose Reyes is dealing with a small fracture in his left rib cage.

    Advice: The Blue Jays haven't ruled out him being able to play through it, as manager John Gibbons said the club should know later Friday whether a trip to the disabled list will be required. Reyes had been dealing with the ailment for a bit before being removed from Thursday's game when it became too painful. Ryan Goins is expected to fill in at shortstop while Reyes is out.

  • Saunders to resume rehab assignment
    Michael Saunders (knee, hamstring) is expected to resume his rehab assignment with High-A Dunedin on Friday.

    Advice: It was reported previously that he'd be back to game action on Tuesday after his right hamstring tightened up on him Sunday, but he apparently needed a few extra days. Saunders ran sprints and the bases Wednesday before being cleared to return. With Kevin Pillar playing so well, the Blue Jays can afford to take their time with Saunders. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The veteran infielder is expected to take the next couple of days off, but is hopeful that he will be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, though how quickly his oblique responds to treatment may determine that.

  • Tim Beckham delivers second pinch-hit homer
    Tim Beckham delivered his second pinch-hit homer of the year Thursday off the Jays' Aaron Loup.

    Advice: A former No. 1 overall pick probably shouldn't aspire to be Manny Mota, but Beckham sure has done nice work off the bench so far, with the two homers and a triple in five at-bats as a pinch-hitter. The Rays might start giving him more time at second base to show what he can do. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Reyes leaves game with rib injury
    Jose Reyes was removed from Thursday's game against the Rays in the first inning due to soreness in his left rib area.

    Advice: Reyes has been batting an oblique issue for awhile, and this could be a recurrence of that, as opposed to a new injury. He was slated for a day of rest on Saturday, and that could be extended now that he's dealing with this ailment. The Jays should have an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com

    Domonic Brown (heel) will continue his minor league rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

It's unclear how many games he'll play in Triple-A before being activated. The Phillies have been relying on a combination of Jeff Francoeur and Grady Sizemore in right field during his absence.

  • Devon Travis goes 3-for-5, homers
    Devon Travis went 3-for-5 with a homer and a double versus the Rays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Travis also homered on Opening Day, so this makes two for him. With the Jays scoring in bunches so far, Travis has been good for six runs scored and six RBI in nine games from the bottom of the order. That's allowed him to be useful in mixed leagues so far, but if the runs begin to dry up for the Jays, Travis's value likely will, too. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:14 pm
  • Molina singles three times in win vs. Brewers
    Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Wednesday's win against the Brewers.

    Advice: Molina has been a bit sluggish to start the season, entering Wednesday's contest 3-for-21 (.143). He knocked the Cardinals' third run in with a single to left field against Wily Peralta. Molina, 32, wasn't quite the force at the plate he used to be, finishing the 2014 season with a .282 average and seven home runs. It's quite tough for catchers to be consistently elite, especially at Molina's age. Rotoworld.com

    Hanley Ramirez slugged a two-run homer in Boston's loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was a fifth-inning shot off Gio Gonzalez that sailed over the Green Monster. Hanley had no other hits on the afternoon but he's off to a very promising start with his new team, boasting a .923 OPS, four home runs, and nine RBI in eight games. Now if only he could pitch. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Cron not in Wednesday's lineup
    C.J. Cron is not in the Angels' lineup Wednesday.
