  • Adams (quad) to begin swinging in two weeks
    Matt Adams (quad) said he plans to begin light swinging within the next two weeks.

    Advice: Adams underwent surgery in late May for a severe quad strain and the initial expectation was that he would miss the remainder of the 2015 season, but it now sounds possible that he could serve as a bench bat in late September and into October. "Seems like he’s getting a little bit more flexibility in what he is allowed to do, and that’s always a real positive for us to see," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday.

  • Carlos Gomez trade fell apart over money?
    According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Carlos Gomez trade to the Mets broke down primarily over financial issues.

    Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported late Wednesday night that the proposal fell apart because of Gomez's hip, but agent Scott Boras and Brewers GM Doug Melvin are vehemently rejecting that angle. It should be noted that there's posturing going on here from all sides -- the Brewers want other teams to believe Gomez is fully healthy, and questioning the Mets' desire to spend is an easy alibi. The 29-year-old center fielder is still very much on the trade block, but talks have obviously been called off with the Mets. Rotoworld.com 54 minutes ago
  • Phillies' next trade could involve Ben Revere
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies' next trade could involve Ben Revere.

    Advice: Rosenthal says at least one American League club has expressed interest in the 27-year-old speedster, who entered play Thursday with a .298/.335/.376 slash line and 24 stolen bases in 95 games. Revere, who's under contractual control through 2017, would be a nice bench addition for any contending team. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:06 am
  • Blue Jays interested in SP Yovani Gallardo
    MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that there's a possibility of Yovani Gallardo being traded to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Texas just beefed up its rotation with the Cole Hamels trade, but the club is still buried in the American League Wild Card race and could sell some parts. Gallardo is due to become a free agent this winter. If the price is right, it sounds like the Rangers will move him. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:46 am
  • Montero (shoulder) experiencing stiffness
    Rafael Montero (shoulder) had some stiffness after his latest throwing session and is expected to see a doctor.

    Advice: It's not clear if this is routine discomfort or a more serious setback. Montero was recently shifted from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list, though that doesn't necessarily affect his timetable. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:27 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Mets will ease d'Arnaud (elbow) back in
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Thursday that he will ease Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) into action.

    Advice: The 26-year-old catcher rejoined the Mets on Thursday morning after missing a month with a left elbow sprain, but he won't be officially activated until Friday. Kevin Plawecki is starting behind the plate against the Padres on Thursday afternoon at Citi Field. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:10 am

  • Walden (biceps) exits outing due to heat
    Jordan Walden (biceps) made an early exit from his rehab outing Wednesday in Memphis due to heat.

    Advice: It was a scorcher in southwest Tennessee, so the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds only had Walden throw two-thirds of an inning. The good news is that his arm is feeling fine and he is already scheduled to make another rehab appearance Friday. Walden, who's been out since late April with a biceps strain, should be cleared to return to the Cardinals' bullpen by early next week. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:01 am

  • Brandon Moss officially traded to Cardinals
    Cardinals acquired 1B/OF Brandon Moss from the Indians for LHP Rob Kaminsky.

    Advice: Moss has struggled to produce consistent numbers offensively since developing a hip injury last summer and there hasn't been much indication that he's going to turn it around. The 31-year-old does have some pop and he does fit the Cardinals' need for a corner outfield and first base type with Matt Holliday (quad) back on the shelf, but Kaminsky is no small price. Moss, who's under contractual control through 2016, will likely split time between first base and left field in St. Louis. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:49 am
  • Tyson Ross drawing 'intense' trade interest
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Tyson Ross is drawing "intense interest" from many.

    Advice: Heyman suspects that the Astros may be at the forefront, though he also ties in the Blue Jays, Cubs, Dodgers, and "many, many others." Ross, 28, owns a 3.03 ERA and 332 strikeouts in 323 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2014 season and he is under contract through 2017. Everybody loves a good, cost-controlled starting pitcher. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:45 am
  • Cardinals acquire Brandon Moss for Kaminsky
    Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have acquired Brandon Moss from the Indians for pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky.

    Advice: Moss fits the Cardinals' need for both a first baseman and corner outfielder, but it comes at a steep price. Kaminsky, the 28th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, boasts a 2.15 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 186/68 K/BB ratio in 217 1/3 career minor league innings. The 20-year-old left-hander is currently in High-A ball. Moss, meanwhile, has struggled offensively since undergoing hip surgery in 2014. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:02 am
  • Van Slyke (neck) scores run on Wednesday
    Scott Van Slyke (neck) drew a walk and scored a run in the later innings of Wednesday's game.

    Advice: Van Slyke hasn't started a game since hurting his neck in a cab ride on Saturday in New York. But it's not a major issue. He should be available for any role Friday after Thursday's scheduled team off-day. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:58 am
  • Marte steals base, scores run on Wed.
    Starling Marte finished 1-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored on Wednesday night.

    Advice: The steal was his 20th of the season. Marte had to be scratched from the Pirates' starting lineup on Tuesday due to a stomach ache, but he's obviously just fine. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:55 am
  • STL talking to Indians about Brandon Moss
    According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the Cardinals are talking to the Indians about Brandon Moss.

    Advice: Moss can play both first base and corner outfield, which fits the Cardinals' immediate need now that Matt Holliday is headed back to the disabled list with a re-strain of his right quad. Moss has struggled in his first season with the Indians, but the 31-year-old registered an .844 OPS (135 OPS+) for the A's between 2012-2014. Cotillo says there's been talk of a one-for-one swap of Moss and Cardinals pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:46 am
  • Lawrie's 4 hits, 4 RBI not enough to beat LAD
    Brett Lawrie went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a homer, three runs scored and four RBI in a loss Wednesday to the Dodgers.

    Advice: He also stole a bag in the monster performance. Lawrie started at third tonight, but he's expected to also draw starts at second base in the wake of Tuesday's Ben Zobrist trade. He's slashing .280/.314/.412 and is on pace for 14 homers, 67 RBI, 54 runs and eight steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Colby Lewis beats Yankees for 11th win
    Colby Lewis allowed two runs over six innings Wednesday in a win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Lewis struck out five and walked none in winning for the 11th time this season. He's one of just 12 pitchers in baseball with that many victories, though his ERA is a far less impressive 4.42. In fairness, the ERA reflects a couple of huge beatings and doesn't perfectly reflect how well he's pitched, either. Still, there isn't really any mixed-league value here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • John Lackey goes eight strong in loss
    John Lackey took a tough loss after allowing just one run and two hits over eight innings Wednesday against the Reds.

    Advice: Anthony DeSclafini was just a little better. Lackey was at 88 pitches and probably could have gone for the complete-game loss tonight if the Cardinals hadn't needed to pinch-hit for him in the bottom of the eighth. He's now 9-6 with a 2.78 ERA. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Hip issue caused Mets to back out on Gomez
    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Mets backed out of the proposed trade to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers due to concern over his hip issue.

    Advice: Scott Boras, the agent for Gomez, has stated that his client is "injury-free" and that he has "no problem whatsoever" with his hip. The Mets will have to continue shopping elsewhere to acquire the big bat they would like to add to the outfield. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Jose Quintana wins second straight start
    Jose Quintana held the Red Sox to two runs in 6 1/3 innings to pick up a win on Wednesday.

    Advice: Quintana got a month's worth of run support tonight, as the White Sox busted out for nine runs to give him his sixth win of the season. It's the first time they've done so well in one of his starts since July 2014. With a shutout of the Indians last time out, Quintana has won back-to-back starts for the first time this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Rangers remain open to dealing Gallardo
    According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the Rangers remain open to the idea of trading Yovani Gallardo.

    Advice: Even though Wednesday's acquisition of Cole Hamels sets the Rangers up to compete in 2016, Gallardo is an impending free agent and could net the club a nice return in the trade market. The veteran right-hander owns a 3.19 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 83/46 K/BB ratio over 121 1/3 innings on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Tyson Ross holds Mets to one run
    Tyson Ross pitched five innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a victory over the Mets.

    Advice: Maybe Ross's status as a trade candidate had something to do with him exiting after 83 pitches and not being pushed to pitch a sixth inning. His control wasn't the best tonight, as it often hasn't been this year, but he's just so darn difficult to get the ball in the air against. The homer he allowed to Lucas Duda tonight was just the fourth he's given up in 127 2/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:41 pm
  • Carlos Gomez trade will not happen
    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson clarified late Wednesday that a trade for Carlos Gomez from the Brewers will not be happening.

    Advice: The deal had been agreed upon by both sides, pending physicals, so the most logical explanation is that something came back with the physical of Zack Wheeler that the Brewers didn't like. Well, it was fun while it lasted. The Mets are likely to turn their attention to other outfield targets once again, perhaps Yoenis Cespedes of the Tigers or Justin Upton from San Diego. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:33 pm
  • Alderson: Gomez trade will not transpire
    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said late Wednesday that the rumored deal to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers "will not transpire".

    Advice: The reported deal had the Mets sending Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores to the Brewers in exchange for the outfielder. The deal was reportedly pending physicals, and still could be, but it doesn't sound as if it's a sure thing at this point. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:13 pm
  • Travis d'Arnaud to rejoin Mets on Thursday
    Travis d'Arnaud has completed his minor league rehab assignment and will rejoin the Mets on Thursday.

    Advice: He has missed the past month with a left elbow sprain, but is now fully recovered and ready to provide an offensive jolt to the Mets. Before landing on the disabled list, the 26-year-old was hitting .296/.338/.535 with four homers and 17 RBI in 19 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:11 pm

  • Mets agree to acquire Carlos Gomez from MIL
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets have agreed to a deal with the Brewers to acquire Carlos Gomez.

    Advice: As rumored, Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores will be headed back to Milwaukee in the trade. The deal is done pending physicals, so don't expect an official announcement to take place until Thursday. Gomez returns to the organization where he began his big league career as a 21-year-old in 2007. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:12 pm
  • Brewers have discussed Wheeler and Flores
    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Brewers have discussed a deal involving Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores in exchange for Carlos Gomez.

    Advice: Rosenthal again cautions that there are no indications that a deal between the two clubs is close, just that talks are ongoing. The Brewers a reportedly seeking a "top four" starter in return for Gomez, and with the Mets wealth of young pitching they certainly have the pieces to make a deal work. It just depends on what they are willing to give up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:25 pm
  • Mets are pushing hard to get Carlos Gomez
    Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports that the Mets are "pushing hard" to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers.

    Advice: The Mets are reportedly close to making a big trade for an outfielder, and Gomez would certainly be everything that they are looking for, a dynamic talent who is still relatively inexpensive and under team control through the 2016 season. Stay tuned, as the Mets appear poised to make some noise before the evening is through. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:59 pm
  • Tyson Ross is Blue Jays 'top trade target'
    ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that Tyson Ross has become the Blue Jays' "top trade target."

    Advice: The issue, however, is how eager the Padres are to move him given his skill level and the fact that he's under team control through 2017. San Diego is also listening on James Shields, Andrew Cashner and Ian Kennedy and they'd surely prefer to trade any of those three over Ross. The Jays have also been connected to Jeff Samardzija, Mike Leake and others. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:45 pm
  • Marte scratched from lineup due to illness
    Starling Marte was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup because of gastritis.

    Advice: In other words, he has a tummy ache. Marte should be ready to roll in a day or two. Jaff Decker has assumed his spot in left field. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:46 pm
  • D'Arnaud (elbow) plays in latest rehab game
    Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) went 1-for-3 with a single and caught seven innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab game with Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: D'Arnaud, out for a month with a left elbow sprain, caught five innings on Saturday and served as the DH on Sunday. He's expected to catch a full game on Tuesday and appears likely to rejoin the Mets this weekend. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:46 am

  • Ross is 'focus' in Cubs' talks with Padres
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Tyson Ross has been the "focus" of the Cubs' trade talks with the Padres.

    Advice: The Padres appear willing to trade anyone from their rotation, but Ross would probably be the least likely to be dealt since he's under team control through 2017. The Cubs have also expressed interest in Ian Kennedy and there's been some speculation that they could consider James Shields. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:03 pm
  • TOR, HOU, LAD, TEX interested in Tyson Ross
    Tyson Ross has drawn interest from the Blue Jays, Astros, Dodgers, and Rangers, reports CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

    Advice: Heyman calls Ross "an extremely popular man on the trade market," and rightly so. The 28-year-old right-hander is under contractual control through 2017 and boasts a 3.05 ERA and 9.2 K/9 in 318 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2014 season. It's going to take a big return for the Padres to give him up, but it does sound like they're listening. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:18 am
  • Rangers, Indians interested in Carlos Gomez
    Carlos Gomez is drawing serious trade interest from the Rangers and Indians, per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

    Advice: Those teams are not currently in line for postseason spots and many expect them to be sellers at the July 31 trade deadline, but a player with the profile of Gomez is going to get attention from all sorts if he's truly made available by the Brewers. The 29-year-old center fielder is earning $8 million this season and is under contract for only $9 million next season. He's a summer removed from a 23-homer, 34-steal campaign. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:34 am
  • Dodgers view Gallardo as secondary option
    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Dodgers currently view Yovani Gallardo as a secondary option if they are unable to land Cole Hamels or David Price.

    Advice: It's a near certainty that the Rangers deal the right-hander before next week's deadline, and they may not be able to wait for the rest of the pitching market to play out before pulling the trigger. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:17 pm
  • Carlos Gomez not in Sunday's lineup
    Carlos Gomez is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Gerardo Parra is filling in for Gomez in center field, while Khris Davis is manning left. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:54 am
  • Scott Van Slyke battling neck injury
    Scott Van Slyke was unavailable to play Saturday due to a neck injury.

    Advice: Van Slyke hurt his neck in a cab on the way to the game Saturday when his head hit the divider as the driver slammed on his breaks. He's considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:18 am
  • Gallardo surrenders five runs in no-decision
    Yovani Gallardo allowed five earned runs in four innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Angels.

    Advice: Texas won the game with a three-run top of the eighth inning. Gallardo was very little help, coughing up eight hits and three walks in a crucial showcase start. The 29-year-old right-hander is one of the more talked-about players on the trade block and could be done in a Rangers uniform. His ERA is back above 3.00. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:53 pm
  • Travis d'Arnaud catches five innings at AA
    Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-3 and caught five innings Saturday afternoon with Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: It looks like d'Arnaud will be back on the Mets' active roster early next week. The 26-year-old catcher has been out since June 23 because of a left elbow sprain. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:18 pm

  • Travis d'Arnaud moves rehab up to Double-A
    Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) has had his minor league rehab assignment up to Double-A Binghampton.

    Advice: His rehab has been stalled a bit after he had a few games rained out at High-A St. Lucie. The Mets are hopeful that he'll be able to return to the team next weekend against the Nationals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:16 am

  • Ben Revere not in Phillies lineup on Saturday
    Ben Revere is not in the Phillies starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Cubs.

    Advice: It doesn't appear to be anything more than a day of rest for Revere, who has been a popular name in trade rumblings this week. Odubel Hererra will start in his place in center field and will bat second for the Phillies against Jake Arrieta. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:03 am
  • Colby Lewis pitches into eighth in victory
    Colby Lewis held the Angels to two runs over 7 2/3 innings in the Rangers' 4-2 win Friday.

    Advice: Lewis just upped his record to 10-4, though his 4.49 ERA is quite a bit less impressive. The poor ERA is partly a result of him being left in to give up 10 earned runs against the Angels on July 5 and nine earned runs against the Indians on May 27, but the 10-4 record probably overstates how well he's pitched. Nonetheless, he could be trade fodder if the Rangers decide to sell. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:13 pm
  • Jose Quintana throws first career shutout
    Jose Quintana threw his first career shutout as part of a 6-0 win over the Indians on Friday.

    Advice: Quintana needed 120 pitches to go the distance. The southpaw scattered seven hits while walking none and striking out eight. It was his first win since July 1. Quintana has again been a very solid option in fantasy leagues this season, posting a 3.56 ERA and 113/27 K/BB ratio in 129 innings across 20 starts. He'll face the struggling Red Sox next week in Boston. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:29 pm
  • Rafael Montero moved to 60-day DL
    Mets transferred RHP Rafael Montero from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: It's just a procedural move to get Michael Conforto on the 40-man roster, as Montero has already missed 60 days with a shoulder injury. He recently began a rehab assignment. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:28 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Ross gives up hree earned runs in loss
    Tyson Ross allowed four runs (three earned) over 5 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: What's strange about the poor outing is that Ross struck out eight, walked zero and gave up no homers. That second bit is shocking given his ineffectiveness tonight, as Ross entered last in the bigs with 4.38 walks per nine (but also leading the league with 0.23 homers allowed per nine innings). Ross gets the Mets next time. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:21 pm
  • John Lackey beats Royals for ninth win
    John Lackey yielded two runs in seven innings in defeating the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: This makes eight straight outings in which Lackey has pitched at least 6 2/3 innings and allowed no more than two runs. For the season, he's given up just 10 homers in 131 1/3 innings, well down from the 24 he allowed in 198 innings last year or the 26 he gave up in 189 1/3 innings in 2013. His ERA stands at 2.88. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:58 pm
  • D'Arnaud (elbow) to begin rehab stint Thu.
    Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday.

    Advice: The Mets want d'Arnaud to play a handful of games in the minors, but Terry Collins thinks he has a chance to be activated next weekend. The 26-year-old catcher has been on the disabled list since June 23 with a left elbow sprain. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:14 pm

  • Dodgers, Rangers have talked about Gallardo
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Dodgers and Rangers have talked about Yovani Gallardo.

    Advice: Morosi is also tying the Royals to Gallardo, who has posted a surprising 2.91 ERA in 117 1/3 innings this season for the Rangers. There's little doubt that the Dodgers will acquire a starting pitcher ahead of the July 31 trade deadline and the list of possible targets is long and wide-ranging. Gallardo, 29, is earning $14 million this year. He can become a free agent in the fall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:11 am
  • Royals 'considering' Gallardo, Cueto, others
    According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Royals are "considering Yovani Gallardo and Johnny Cueto, among many other options for their rotation."

    Advice: Cueto would obviously be the biggest splash, but Gallardo isn't a bad target either for the starter-needing Royals. Gallardo has revitalized his career this season in an unlikely spot -- Arlington, Texas -- boasting a 2.91 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 80/43 K/BB ratio in 117 1/3 innings. The 29-year-old right-hander would obviously come much cheaper than Cueto in terms of prospects. Kansas City just lost Jason Vargas to Tommy John surgery. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:20 am
  • Marte has two hits, stolen base against KC
    Starling Marte went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Marte doubled off Royals starter Jason Vargas in the second inning before stealing third base, but his teammates weren't able to drive him in. Marte has three multi-hit games in his last four contests. The 26-year-old is now hitting .283/.331/.455 with 13 homers, 50 RBI, 47 runs scored and 19 steals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:52 pm
  • Gomez reaches base four times against Indians
    Carlos Gomez reached base all four times he came to the plate against the Indians on Tuesday, finishing 1-for-1 with an RBI, a run scored and three walks.

    Advice: In a strange twist, the usually walk-averse outfielder has now walked 11 times in his last nine games after walking just 10 times all season through July 6. Although most leagues don't count walks, it's a good sign for fantasy owners that Gomez seems to be seeing the ball well these days. The RBI single pushed his line to .271/.338/.442 with 42 RBI and 41 runs scored on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:22 pm
  • Astros have discussed Ross, Cashner with Pads
    Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros have "had at least a preliminary conversation" with the Padres about Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner.

    Advice: They've also talked with the Phillies about Cole Hamels, although there's been some feeling that Hamels would reject a trade to the Astros. Houston has been connected to Johnny Cueto, as well. Both Ross and Cashner would be more than rentals for the Astros, as Ross is under team control through 2017 and Cashner through 2016. Drellich does add that the Astros "do seem prepared to part with top prospects, however, even for a rental." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:41 pm
  • Rangers 'listening' on Yovani Gallardo
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers are "listening" on Yovani Gallardo even while involved in Cole Hamels trade talks.

    Advice: Rosenthal says that the Rangers could both buy and sell, as they're not really contenders this season but could go after Hamels as a long-term play. Gallardo is in the midst of a nice season, having put up a 2.91 ERA across 20 starts for the Rangers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:57 pm
  • Walden (biceps) cleared for rehab assignment
    Jordan Walden (biceps) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Double-A Springfield.

    Advice: A nice development for the Cardinals, who have been without the hard-throwing setup man since the end of April. Walden will probably make 4-5 minor league appearances before returning to the St. Louis bullpen around late July or early August. He had a 0.87 ERA and 12 strikeouts over his first 10 1/3 innings (12 appearances) this season with the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:17 pm

  • Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) taking rounds of BP
    Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) has taken successful rounds of live batting practice the last two days.

    Advice: And it sounds like he'll be playing in rehab games by the end of the week. The 26-year-old catcher has been on the disabled list since June 23 with a left elbow sprain. He's trending toward an end-of-July return. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:38 pm
