  • Granderson logs three hits as Mets rout Nats
    Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored as the Mets easily handled the Nationals on Monday.

    Advice: Granderson knocked in the final two of the Mets' 12 runs with a seventh-inning single. The outfielder has been on a tear at the plate, batting .320 (24-for-75) in his last 18 games. He's turned in a productive year, posting a .258/.351/.445 triple-slash line along with 17 home runs and 40 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:20 pm
  • Cespedes knocks in four, Mets rout Marlins
    Yoenis Cespedes plated four runs, doubling three times in five at-bats on Monday as the Mets routed the Nationals.

    Advice: Cespedes had only one hit in eight plate appearances since joining the Mets, but broke out on Monday. He doubled in a pair of runs in the fifth inning and later scored, then added another two-run two-bagger in the sixth before coming home on a wild pitch. The Mets are now in first place ahead of the Nationals and Cespedes should provide plenty more offense for them down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:17 pm
  • Conforto hits first MLB HR as the Mets roll
    Michael Conforto's first major league home run was a three-run home run that gave the Mets a lead they wouldn't relinquish on Monday versus the Marlins.

    Advice: The 22-year-old rookie was batting .211 (4-for-19) in his first six big league games entering Monday. With a pair of ducks on the pond, Conforto deposited a Tom Koehler offering over the fence in right field at Marlins Park to give the Mets a 3-0 lead. He finished 2-for-4. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:14 pm
  • Peralta homers, D'Backs beat the Nationals
    David Peralta went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, aiding in Monday's win against the Nationals.

    Advice: Peralta boosted the Diamondbacks' lead to 3-0 with a two-run home run off of Doug Fister in the fourth inning. It was his first home run since July 18, but he had hit .316 (12-for-38) in that span of time, so it wasn't a slump. On the season, the outfielder is batting a healthy .284/.353/.503 with 10 home runs and 50 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:54 pm
  • Matt Joyce (concussion) works out
    Matt Joyce (concussion) went through a workout on Monday.

    Advice: Although he's been symptom-free for a few days, this is the first on-field workout Joyce has gone through since he went on the 7-day concussion disabled list. He should be ready to be activated soon, but the Angels might designate him for assignment. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:01 pm

  • Angel Pagan (knees) scratched from lineup
    Angel Pagan was scratched from Monday's lineup due to soreness in both knees.

    Advice: Pagan had an issue with his left knee back in June and not only is it sore again but apparently his right one is, as well. "It's really evident," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. The skipper indicated that it will likely be a multi-day absence for Pagan. Gregor Blanco is in center field Monday and Nori Aoki is in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:42 pm
  • Matt Szczur recalled from Triple-A
    Cubs recalled OF Matt Szczur from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Szczur sports an ugly .211/.246/.316 batting line during his time in the majors this season. He'll back up at all three outfield spots. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm
  • Jake Smolinski optioned to Triple-A
    Athletics optioned OF Jake Smolinski to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Smolinski is sent packing despite hitting .320/.379/.640 in 11 games since joining the A's. The club had to pick an outfielder to go with Coco Crisp back from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:28 pm

  • A's activate Coco Crisp from disabled list
    Athletics activated OF Coco Crisp from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Crisp is finally ready to give it a go again after being sidelined since mid-May with his ongoing neck issue. He had only two hits in 45 at-bats before going on the disabled list and remains a major health risk going forward. However, the A's plan to start him in left field and bat him second in the lineup as long as he's able to stay on the field. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:23 pm
  • Denard Span (back) resuming light workouts
    Denard Span (back) will resume light workouts on Monday.

    Advice: Span has been shut down for the last two weeks since receiving a cortisone injection in his ailing back. He'll be slowly ramped back up and will need a rehab assignment before returning, so it will be a little while. Still, Monday was obviously a nice step for the outfielder.

  • Torii Hunter slugs solo homer in loss to Jays
    Torii Hunter slugged a solo home run Monday in the Twins' afternoon loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It was the only run Minnesota scored against David Price in his Blue Jays debut at Rogers Centre in Toronto. Hunter has 17 home runs and 56 RBI in 94 games this season, though that has come with a .249 average and .303 OBP. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:56 pm
  • Blue Jays outright Ezequiel Carrera to AAA
    Blue Jays sent OF Ezequiel Carrera outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Carrera was designated for assignment by the Jays on Saturday and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 28-year-old outfielder is a .259/.311/.349 career hitter. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 pm

  • Pollock (hamstring) back in lineup on Monday
    A.J. Pollock (hamstring) is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Monday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Pollock was given a few days off this weekend with a minor hamstring injury. The 27-year-old outfielder is batting .305/.361/.465 with 11 home runs and 23 stolen bases in 100 games this season for the Diamondbacks. He's one of the most underrated players in baseball. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:36 pm
  • Athletics pick up Danny Valencia off waivers
    Athletics claimed INF/OF Danny Valencia off waivers from the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Valencia was designated for assignment by Toronto in a somewhat surprising move after the July 31 trade deadline. He's having a very good season and drew interest from a range of teams (including the White Sox, Rangers, and Orioles) on the waiver wire. The 30-year-old probably isn't going to carry a ton of fantasy value in Oakland. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:06 pm
    Top 5, 1-6 vs x Bal
     
  • Michael Morse starting at 1B on Monday
    Michael Morse is batting seventh and starting at first base Monday in his Pirates debut.

    Advice: Morse was acquired from the Dodgers in a July 31 deadline trade. He had been shipped from Miami to Los Angeles one day prior as part of a big 13-player, three-team swap. The 33-year-old first baseman has struggled mightily this season and probably won't suddenly take on significant fantasy value with Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:00 pm
  • Granderson blasts 17th homer as Mets sweep
    Curtis Granderson blasted his 17th home run of the season as the Mets completed their three-game sweep of the Nationals on Sunday.

    Advice: Granderson's two-run blast off Jordan Zimmermann got the Mets on the board in the third inning. He would immediately be followed by a solo shot from teammate Daniel Murphy, a single from Yoenis Cespedes and a two-run bomb off the bat of Lucas Duda to provide the extent of the Mets offense. Granderson has quietly had a very strong season atop the Mets lineup, slashing .254/.347/.443 with 17 long balls and 38 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:59 pm
  • ChiSox, Rangers, O's interested in Valencia
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the White Sox, Rangers and Orioles have emerged as the most likely destinations for Danny Valencia.

    Advice: In a bit of a surprise move, Valencia was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday. He is expected to be claimed off trade waivers on Monday, which will give the Jays an opportunity to deal him. Valencia is having a terrific season, slashing .296/.331/.506 with seven long balls and 29 RBI in his 162 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:16 pm

  • Pagan's ninth inning double not enough
    Angel Pagan went 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Pagan doubled off of locked-in Rangers starter Martin Perez with one out in the ninth inning. He would score on a Buster Posey RBI single, but the Giants were unable to complete a winning rally, as they fell by a score of 2-1. Pagan is hitting a light .264/.297/.317 with no home runs, 25 RBI, 37 runs scored and six steals this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:02 pm
  • Mets recall Michael Conforto from Triple-A
    Mets recalled OF Michael Conforto from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Conforto was just sent back down to the minor leagues on Saturday to make room on the active roster for Yoenis Cespedes. The 22-year-old is hitting .211 (4-for-19) with no homers and three RBI through his first six games in the big leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:41 pm
  • Coco Crisp (neck) to be activated Monday
    Coco Crisp (neck) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

    Advice: Crisp has been out since late May with his chronic neck injury. He had just two hits in 45 at-bats before going on the disabled list and is a poor bet to remain healthy over a long period of time. A's manager Bob Melvin did note that he plans to hit Crisp second, though, which helps make him an interesting gamble in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:47 am
  • Matt Joyce (concussion) symptom-free
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Saturday that Matt Joyce (concussion) has been symptom-free for a couple days.

    Advice: Joyce should be ready to return soon, but with the addition of David Murphy, Shane Victorino and David DeJesus, there's really no longer a role for him. He's a candidate to be designated for assignment. Joyce is batting just .178/.274/.298 on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 am

  • Mets send down Michael Conforto
    Mets optioned OF Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: New York sent him down to make room for Yoenis Cespedes. Conforto got off to a good start (4-for-7 in his first two games), but went hitless over his last four contests. The 22-year-old should have plenty more chances to make an impact in the big leagues, but for now, he's better off getting regular at-bats in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:49 pm
  • Pollock (hamstring) not in lineup on Saturday
    A.J. Pollock is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He was forced to leave Friday's game due to tightness in his hamstring, and it sounds as though manager Chip Hale wants to give him an extra day just to be safe. Cliff Pennington is starting in left field and will bat ninth for the D'Backs. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:48 pm
  • Jays designate Danny Valencia for assignment
    Blue Jays designated INF/OF Danny Valencia for assignment.

    Advice: With all of the recent acquisitions that the Blue Jays have made, they were forced to make a few tough decisions on their roster and it appears that Valencia is the odd-man out. The lefty-masher was hitting .296/.331/.506 overall with seven homers and 29 RBI in 162 at-bats. He should attract interest from plenty of teams looking to upgrade their bench.

  • Blue Jays designate Carrera for assignment
    Blue Jays designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

    Advice: The 28-year-old outfielder had done a nice job in limited time for the Jays, hitting .279/.327/.374 with three homers and 21 RBI in 70 games. He could attract some interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:15 am

  • A.J. Pollock leaves game with tight hamstring
    A.J. Pollock was removed from Friday's game against the Astros due to tightness in his hamstring.

    Advice: The Diamondbacks are calling his early exit purely precautionary. He's considered day-to-day and should be able to rejoin the Diamondbacks lineup at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:24 pm
  • Span (back) to resume baseball activity soon
    Denard Span (back) is expected to resume doing baseball activities soon.

    Advice: The outfielder has thus far been working on strengthening his core, but will soon progress to swinging and fielding drills. He will need a minor league rehab assignment to get his timing back, but could be able to return to the Nationals lineup in early August if he avoids any further setbacks. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:59 pm

  • Coco Crisp to remain on rehab through weekend
    Coco Crisp (neck) will remain on his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Stockton throughout the weekend.

    Advice: He is scheduled to play in games on Friday and Saturday before being re-evaluated by the Athletics medical staff on Sunday. If all goes well, there's a chance that he could rejoin the A's lineup on Monday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:03 pm
  • Mets announce trade for Yoenis Cespedes
    Mets acquired OF Yoenis Cespedes from the Tigers in exchange for RHPs Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa.

    Advice: The Mets whiffed on Carlos Gomez and Jay Bruce but found the bat they were looking for in Cespedes. He'll patrol left field in New York and should provide a much-needed jolt to the Mets' lineup. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:35 pm
  • Pirates acquire Michael Morse for Jose Tabata
    Pirates acquired 1B/OF Michael Morse from the Dodgers in exchange for OF Jose Tabata.

    Advice: Morse was designated for assignment after the Dodgers picked him up in the three-team deal with the Marlins and Braves. He's hit only .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season but offers the Pirates an option at first base against left-handed pitching. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:23 pm
  • Mets trade for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes
    Bruce Levine of 670thescore.com reports that the Mets have acquired Yoenis Cespedes from the Tigers.

    Advice: The Tigers will receive pitching prospects Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa in return, but the Mets didn't blink in refusing to offer Zack Wheeler. Detroit pretty much had to deal Cespedes, as they're in seller mode and can't make him a qualifying offer after the season. He'll provide some much-needed thump to the Mets' lineup. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:52 pm
  • Mets 'making push' for Yoenis Cespedes
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are "making a push" for Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: The Mets had a deal in place for Carlos Gomez and were close on Jay Bruce, only to see both potential trades fall apart. It appears they've moved their focus to Cespedes as they seek some offensive help. It's unclear at this point what the Mets would have to give up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:20 am
  • Angels have discussed Cespedes with Tigers
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Angels have talked with the Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: The Angels have already traded for three different outfielder/designated hitter types, but Cespedes would be a much bigger bat than all of them. It's unclear how serious the discussions are at this point. The Mets have also been linked to Cespedes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:11 am
  • Mets talking to Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are talking to the Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: Talks with the Reds about Jay Bruce appear to be losing steam, so the Mets are looking at other outfielders. Rosenthal notes that Cespedes is "one of their many options," as they've also been connected to Will Venable and Rajai Davis. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says that the Nationals "could be a possibility" for Cespedes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:14 am
  • Yoenis Cespedes goes 3-for-5, homers
    In probably his final game with the Tigers, Yoenis Cespedes went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI as Detroit prevailed 9-8 against Baltimore on Thursday.

    Advice: The Tigers moved David Price and Joakim Soria, so there's no reason to stop now. Since Cespedes won't even bring back a pick this winter, he's almost certainly a goner. And he'll probably have less fantasy value wherever he ends up. Cespedes is batting .293 with 18 homers, 62 runs scored and 61 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:35 pm
  • Dodgers designate Morse for assignment
    Dodgers designated 1B Michael Morse for assignment.

    Advice: Morse was acquired on Thursday as part of the massive 13-player, three-team trade with the Marlins and Braves, but it's clear that he was just a salary dump. The 33-year-old is unlikely to attract much interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:34 pm
  • Granderson launches three-run homer in loss
    Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Granderson's three-run tater off of Padres starter Andrew Cashner in the fifth inning pushed the Met advantage to 4-0. They would ultimately lose 8-7 after blowing a six-run lead. The homer was Granderson's 16th of the season. He also contributed a double in the contest. While he's hitting a somewhat pedestrian .255/.350/.440, he's on track to finish with 20+ home runs for the eighth time in his career. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:39 pm
  • Report: Orioles interested in Yoenis Cespedes
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Orioles are interested in Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: The Orioles are just one game back for a Wild Card spot and could really use a bat, but they might not have enough in their farm system to outbid other contenders. They also might not be willing to give a top prospect for a rental. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:26 pm
  • Dodgers acquire Michael Morse from Marlins
    Dodgers acquired 1B Michael Morse from the Marlins in the 13-player, three-team Mat Latos trade.

    Advice: Morse doesn't fit all that well on the Dodgers' current roster and it seems possible that they might turn around and designate him for assignment to clear room for some of the other players they acquired in this massive swap. Morse, 33, was batting just .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season for Miami. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:34 pm
  • Mets have inquired on Yoenis Cespedes
    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Mets have spoken to the Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: Morosi cautions that there is only minimal interest from the Mets at this time. With the team reportedly closing in on a deal for an outfielder, there should be a resolution soon. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:27 pm
  • Dodgers/Marlins deal could involve third team
    Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that there is a third team involved in the trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Bowden says the deal will be "bigger than expected." There's a good chance it means Morse will be flipped to another team, as the Dodgers have little use for him. We should know more details later Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:43 pm
  • Angel Pagan not in lineup Wednesday
    Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Gregor Blanco is in center field while Pagan rests. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:28 am
  • Peralta fills up the box score as D'Backs win
    David Peralta went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, two RBI, and a run scored as the Diamondbacks defeated the Mariners 8-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Peralta gave the D'Backs an early 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first inning. He tacked on an RBI double in the third, and scored after singling in the sixth. He walked and stole second base in the seventh but was stranded. Peralta has put up great numbers this season, batting .278/.352/.495 with nine home runs and 45 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:25 pm
  • Cespedes homers again but Tigers lose to Rays
    Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, but the Tigers were felled by the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cespedes hit a solo home run off of Jake Odorizzi in the fourth inning to create a 1-1 tie. He's gone deep in back-to-back games and seven times in 19 games since July 6, giving him 17 on the year with 58 RBI and a .289/.321/.500. The Tigers are four games under .500 with less than three days remaining until the trade deadline. Cespedes remains a candidate to be moved in a trade. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:55 pm
  • Granderson homers, Mets blank the Padres
    Curtis Granderson had a two-run home run and a single in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mets shut out the Padres 4-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Granderson added insurance when he took reliever Shawn Kelly yard in the eighth inning, doubling the Mets' lead. Though his bat has cooled off a bit in July, the outfielder has turned in a solid year despite carrying a .682 OPS through the end of April. Granderson is batting .253/.346/.431 with 15 home runs and 33 RBI to date. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:49 pm
  • Angels place OF Joyce on concussion DL
    Angels placed OF Matt Joyce on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Joyce suffered a concussion in a collision with teammate Erick Aybar on Sunday and will now get some extended rest. Dioner Navarro will take his place on the active roster. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:00 pm

  • Coco Crisp (neck) to begin rehab assignment
    Coco Crisp (neck) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Stockton on Monday.

    Advice: He's slated to play for games there before being re-evaluated, so it sounds like Crisp could be activated by the end of the week. The veteran outfielder has been on the shelf since late May with a nagging neck issue. He had just two hits in 45 at-bats before going on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 11:15 am
  • Hunter homers in second straight game vs NYY
    Torii Hunter went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 8-5 loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Hunter's three-run homer off of Yankees starter CC Sabathia in the third inning made the score 5-0 Twinkies. The team wouldn't score again in the contest, though, ultimately falling 8-5 as the Yankees completed a big comeback. Sad loss aside, Hunter's putting in a strong season for the Twins. The home run was his 16th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 53. He's hitting .254/.308/.443 and while his average has fallen off compared to recent seasons, he continues to mash for power and should pass the 20-homer mark for the 11th time in his career sometime in the next few weeks. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 7:33 pm
  • Peralta (head) goes 1-for-3 in return Friday
    David Peralta (head) went 1-for-3 in his return to the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Peralta was drilled in the helmet by a Jose Fernandez pitch in a scary incident on Wednesday, but passed all of his concussion tests and looks to be good to go. He's/aving a nice season in the middle of the D'Backs lineup, slashing .273/.347/.492 with nine homers and 43 RBI in 88 games. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 5:44 am
  • Conforto hitless, drives in run in MLB debut
    Michael Conforto went 0-for-3 with an RBI ground out in his major league debut Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Conforto grounded out in all three of hits at-bats, so his first career hit will have to wait for another day, but he did manage to drive in his first run. It's hard to say for sure whether he's ready, but the Mets are prepared to give him a shot in left field with Michael Cuddyer sidelined. Things could change if he struggles or the team makes another trade. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 7:01 pm
  • Coco Crisp (neck) could begin rehab soon
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Coco Crisp (neck) has been feeling better in recent days and could begin a minor league rehab assignment soon.

    Advice: Crisp has been taking batting practice since Tuesday without any issues. The oft-injured outfielder has been limited to just 13 games this season due to a wide variety of ailments. He's likely going to require a lengthy rehab stint, and if he comes through it healthy could rejoin the A's at some point in early August. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 5:26 pm
  • Michael Conforto batting seventh in MLB debut
    Michael Conforto is in left field and batting seventh in his major league debut on Friday.

    Advice: He and the Mets will be facing off against Ian Thomas and the Dodgers. Following weeks of speculation, Conforto was finally promoted after putting up a .297/.372/.482 batting line with 12 homers and 54 RBI between High- and Double-A this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 1:50 pm
  • Giants could bring back Michael Morse
    MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that Michael Morse "might just be dealt" to the Giants.

    Advice: Morse, of course, had a nice season for the Giants last year. However, he's hit only .206/.268/.310 during an injury-shortened 2015 campaign and is owed $8 million next season. Plus, the Giants don't really have a need for him other than a bat off the bench. It's hard to see a fit unless the Marlins pay down the bulk of what remains on his contract. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 9:45 am
  • Michael Conforto called up from Double-A
    Mets purchased the contract of OF Michael Conforto from Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: The Mets bought as much time as they could with Michael Cuddyer's knee injury but ultimately placed him on the disabled list Friday. That means Conforto, who was the club's first-round draft pick last season, will take over as the regular left fielder at least against right-handers. Ranked by Baseball America at midseason as the No. 14 prospect in the game, Conforto has batted .297/.372/.482 with 12 homers and 54 RBI between High- and Double-A this season. The 22-year-old is worth a shot in all fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 8:18 am
  • Pollock falls a homer short of cycle in win
    A.J. Pollock went 3-for-5 with a double, triple, two RBI and a run scored versus the Brewers on Thursday.

    Advice: Pollock is one of the most underrated fantasy players in the sport, one of its only five-category barbarians. Pollock is hitting .307 and is on pace for 19 homers, 76 RBI, 107 runs and 34 steals. Rotoworld.com Jul 23, 10:16 pm
