  • Cano (ankle) expects to be fine on Monday
    Robinson Cano expects to be in the Mariners lineup on Monday after getting hit by a pitch on his ankle in Sunday's game.

    Advice: There's still a chance that his ankle could swell on the trip back to Seattle, or the Mariners could give him a day to rest as a precaution, but expect to see him in the M's lineup for Monday's series opener against the Tigers.

  • Harper tops all NL players in All-Star votes
    Bryce Harper was the leading vote getter in the entire National League for the All-Star game, garnering 13,864,950 ballots.

    Advice: It will be the third time in his first four years in the big leagues that he has made the National League squad. He'll be joined by Paul Goldschmidt, Dee Gordon, Todd Frazier, Jhonny Peralta, Buster Posey, Giancarlo Stanton and Matt Holliday in the starting lineup for the senior circuit. Stanton is on the disabled list and will not be able to appear in the game, and Holliday's status is up in the air.

  • Rubby De La Rosa shelled for six runs
    Rubby De La Rosa struggled in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, allowing six runs on eight hits over five-plus innings.

    Advice: De La Rosa was bit by the home run bug, serving up a three-run shot to Troy Tulowitzki in the first inning and a two-run bomb to Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. The rough start pushed an already lackluster ERA from 4.60 to 4.89. In addition, De La Rosa holds a 1.27 WHIP and 97/27 K/BB ratio over 106 2/3 innings. The strikeouts are there, and De La Rosa had pitched well in his previous four starts, but these kinds of big letdowns are ERA killers. He'll try to get back on the right track when he takes on the Mets at Citi Field in the Diamondbacks' final game before the All-Star Break.

  • Yoan Moncada slowly heating up for Greenville
    Red Sox 2B prospect Yoan Moncada contributed two hits Saturday for Low-A Greenville.

    Advice: That gives Moncada four two-hit games in his last nine contests. Over that span, he's hit .314 with two RBI. The 20-year-old has only managed a .234 average in his first 34 minor league games, but he already has 10 steals without getting caught. He joined the Red Sox in March and received a $31.5 million signing bonus.

  • Braves waste Miller's 6 1/3 shutout innings
    Shelby Miller's 6 1/3 scoreless innings went to waste as the Braves lost in 10 innings to the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Miller scattered seven hits and two walks while striking out eight, nearly matching opposing starter Cole Hamels in zeroes. He left with a runner on second base and one out in the seventh as Luis Avilan relieved him, and the Phillies were again kept off the board. Miller, despite pitching tremendously, hasn't gotten a win since May 17. He's 5-4 with a 2.07 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP, and an 88/34 K/BB ratio in 108 2/3 innings. Miller will start at Coors Field against the Rockies next.

  • Howard hitless, but knocks in the winning run
    Ryan Howard went 0-for-4, but knocked in the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning on Sunday against the Braves.

    Advice: The two clubs were knotted in a scoreless tie heading into the 10th inning, but the Phillies rallied to load the bases with no outs for Howard, facing lefty reliever Dana Eveland. Howard lifted a sacrifice fly to right field to bring in the first of four 10th-inning runs. Since his last home run on June 19, Howard has hit the skids, batting .135 (7-for-52) in his last 14 games. He's hitting .217/.262/.427 with 13 home runs and 38 RBI on the year.
    Today, 1:51 pm
  • Duffy hurls quality start against Twins
    Danny Duffy pitched well in earning a Sunday no-decision against the Twins, yielding two runs on five hits 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Duffy struck out one and walked three. Miguel Sano stung him for an RBI double in the second inning and Aaron Hicks took him deep for a solo homer in the next frame, but he otherwise kept the Twinkies off the scoreboard. Duffy missed over a month with biceps tendinitis and since returning to the rotation on June 25, has allowed eight runs in 17 2/3 innings. Overall, he holds a 5.14 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. Up next on the docket, a Friday home start against the Blue Jays.

  • Travis knocks in three runs in a Jays win
    Devon Travis went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, and three RBI as the Blue Jays topped the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Travis doubled in the first of six runs the Jays scored in the fifth inning against Justin Verlander. He added an RBI single in the seventh and a sacrifice fly in the ninth. Travis has hit safely in eight of nine games since returning from the disabled list, including seven games in a row now. In 180 plate appearances this season, he's batting .297/.350/.503 with seven home runs and 31 RBI.

  • Delino DeShields activated from disabled list
    Rangers activated OF Delino DeShields from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: DeShields is back from his hamstring injury after completing a six-game rehab assignment. With Josh Hamilton's (groin) status up in the air, he could wind up playing a lot in left field.
    Today, 12:55 pm
  • Anthony Rizzo getting some rest Sunday
    Anthony Rizzo is not in the Cubs' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting a breather ahead of the club's big four-game series with the Cardinals early this week. Mike Baxter is at first base with Rizzo out.
    Today, 8:09 am
  • Tomlin (shoulder) close to rehab assignment
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Saturday that Josh Tomlin (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment "pretty soon."

    Advice: Tomlin has been throwing off a mound at the Tribe's spring training complex. Working his way back from surgery on his right AC join, Tomlin is hoping to be an option for the Indians at some point in the second half.

  • Nick Swisher (knee) nears rehab assignment
    Nick Swisher (knee) is on track to begin a rehab assignment just after the All-Star break.

    Advice: Swisher ran on the field prior to Saturday's game as he works his way back from inflammation in his surgically-repaired left knee. He's already missed nearly a month and it's unclear how many rehab games he'll require.

  • D.J. LeMahieu goes 3-for-4
    D.J. LeMahieu broke out of a slump with a 3-for-4 game Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: LeMahieu hadn't had a multihit game since June 11, even though he's been batting second and usually getting five plate appearances per game. His average, which stood at .351 on June 11, entered tonight at .293, but it's back up to .300 now. He's not a bad option in mixed leagues for as long as he bats second, but he'll probably end up back at the bottom of the order at some point.
    Yesterday, 10:36 pm
  • Wandy Rodriguez gives up five runs to Angels
    Wandy Rodriguez gave up five runs in five innings Saturday in a loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Rodriguez managed to survive the Orioles earlier in the week, but he's given up 28 hits and eight walks over 14 innings in his last three starts. The Rangers will stick with him, but AL-only leaguers don't have as much reason to do so.
    Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • C.J. Cron hits three-run homer, knocks in six
    C.J. Cron went 3-for-6 with a three-run homer and six RBI in the rout the Rangers on Saturday.

    Advice: The outburst was appreciated, but Cron needs to come up big in games the Angels aren't winning 13-0. He entered the night with a .198/.228/.281 line and a 30/2 K/BB ratio in 121 at-bats. The Angels are starved for offense, though, so this might earn him some extra playing time.
    Yesterday, 10:18 pm
  • Delino Deshields close to returning from DL
    Delino Deshields (hamstring) will be reevaluated after Saturday's workout.

    Advice: Deshields recently wrapped up a six-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock and is close to 100 percent. He should be activated from the disabled list in the next day or two. Texas has a crowded outfield now with Josh Hamilton, Leonys Martin and Shin-Soo Choo all seeing regular at-bats. Deshields had 13 steals in 48 games before his injury.
    Yesterday, 4:52 pm
  • Bryce Harper launches 25th home run
    Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk, and two runs scored in Saturday's 9-3 win over the Giants.

    Advice: Using a special Fourth of July-themed bat, Harper took Madison Bumgarner deep in the first inning. Bumgarner hadn't given up a home run to a left-handed batter in 47 starts. Harper is now up to 25 home runs, which ties him with Cincinnati's Todd Frazier for second in the National League. He owns a ridiculous .344/.470/.719 batting line on the year.
    Yesterday, 11:39 am
  • D.J. LeMahieu not in Rockies lineup Thursday
    D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the second straight week that Walt Weiss has opted to rest his second baseman on Thursday. Daniel Descalso will get the start in his place and bat seventh against Jeremy Hellickson and the Diamondbacks.
    Thursday, 4:03 pm
  • Cano tallies four hits as M's defeat Padres
    Robinson Cano finished 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in the Mariners' defeat of the Padres on Wednesday.

    Advice: Cano hit a single in the fourth inning, a solo shot in the sixth inning, another single in the seventh inning, and an RBI double in the top of the ninth. It was one of his best games of the season. He's still batting just .247/.285/.365 in 75 total games.
    Wednesday, 3:54 pm
  • De La Rosa solid in 5 2/3 IP in no-decision
    Rubby De La Rosa scattered two runs in 5 2/3 innings, but got a no-decision in Tuesday's 10-inning loss versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Both runs scored on a Yasmany Tomas home run in the second inning. De La Rosa allowed six hits and a walk overall while striking out seven. He's put together four terrific starts in a row now but still has a mediocre 4.60 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 94/26 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will look to keep it going when he faces the Rockies at home in his next start.
    Tuesday, 10:58 pm
  • Duffy yields four runs in loss against Astros
    Danny Duffy allowed four runs over 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: It was a bit of a mixed bag for Duffy, who allowed six hits and two walks but struck out six in the effort. Still, it was a better showing than his last time out when, after cruising along for four innings, Duffy was yanked before completing five innings. That was his first start in more than a month due to biceps tendinitis, and Duffy is now 2-4 with a 5.44 ERA and 1.63 WHIP. He'll look to continue to round into form Sunday against the Twins.

  • Miller ineffective in a loss against the Nats
    Shelby Miller was ineffective in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday, serving up five runs (four earned) over five innings.

    Advice: Miller did strike out a season-high 10 batters, but allowed eight hits and three walks. The Nats scored four of their five runs in the first inning, and tacked on that fifth run in the third inning thanks to an A.J. Pierzynski throwing error. Miller has only twice in 16 starts allowed four-plus runs, but both have occurred in June. He still owns an outstanding 2.20 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP and an 80/32 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 innings. Miller will face a low-scoring Phillies lineup at home his next turn through the rotation.
    Tuesday, 7:34 pm
  • Harper in Tuesday's lineup
    Bryce Harper is in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

    Advice: Harper returned from his right hamstring strain in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader, but sat out the second game. He'll hit cleanup Tuesday against Shelby Miller.
    Tuesday, 12:36 pm
  • Cron's homer does the job in win vs. Yankees
    C.J. Cron went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, helping the Angels edge the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Cron, recently recalled from Triple-A, drilled his second big league home run of the season in the seventh inning off of CC Sabathia to pad the Angels' lead to 4-1. He hasn't hit much in the majors this season, but has crushed Triple-A competition in two short stints.
    Monday, 10:04 pm
  • Rodriguez tosses 5 solid innings to beat O's
    Wandy Rodriguez earned the win, limiting the Orioles to one run in five innings as the Rangers sealed an 8-1 victory on Monday.

    Advice: Rodriguez was routed in his most recent start against the Athletics, so Monday's performance was a nice bounce-back effort. The lefty worked around eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts. He'll carry a 3.91 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 61/28 K/BB ratio over 73 2/3 innings into a home start against the Angels next weekend.
    Jun 29, 7:38 pm
  • C.J. Cron recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled 1B/DH C.J. Cron from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Cron is batting just .204/.237/.269 in his time with the big club this season. He'll see some time versus left-handers.
    Jun 29, 1:26 pm
  • Harper sits for second game of doubleheader
    Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

    Advice: Harper returned to the lineup in Game 1 on Sunday, going 1-for-4 plus a walk. Clint Robinson will draw the start in left field and bat fourth for the Nationals.
    Jun 28, 1:50 pm
  • Robinson Cano (head) back in M's lineup
    Robinson Cano (head) is back in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Cano was hit in the forehead by an errant throw from the Angels' Taylor Featherston in between innings Saturday. He avoided a serious injury, though, and is back in there Sunday.
    Jun 28, 10:33 am
  • Bryce Harper (hamstring) back in action Sun.
    Bryce Harper (hamstring) is back in the Nationals' lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

    Advice: Harper hasn't played since Wednesday due to a minor right hamstring strain, but he's made the necessary progress in order to return to action Sunday. The Nats figure to play it safe and rest him for the second game of the doubleheader.
    Jun 28, 7:48 am
  • Cano day-to-day with bruised forehead
    Robinson Cano is day-to-day with a bruised forehead.

    Advice: The injury occurred when Cano got hit by an errant throw from Angels shortstop Taylor Featherston between innings. Cano passed his concussion test and most of the swelling has already gone down. Expect the six-time All-Star to be back in the lineup on Sunday.
    Jun 27, 6:52 pm
  • Robinson Cano leaves game with head injury
    Robinson Cano left Saturday's game against the Angels with a head injury.

    Advice: A ball struck him in the forehead while the Angels were warming up between innings. Willie Bloomquist replaced Cano at second base. Cano was hitless in three at-bats before exiting. The six-time All-Star is likely headed for a concussion test.
    Jun 27, 6:14 pm
  • Bryce Harper remains out of lineup Saturday
    Bryce Harper (hamstring) remains out of the Nationals starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Harper continues to feel better by the day, but isn't quite ready to return to the Nationals lineup. Clint Robinson will once again draw the start in his place.
    Jun 27, 10:59 am
  • Ryan Howard not in Phillies lineup Saturday
    Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a day of rest against tough southpaw Gio Gonzalez. Maikel Franco is getting the start at first base while Andres Blanco covers the hot corner. Look for Howard to return on Sunday.
    Jun 27, 9:26 am
  • MRI on Harper's hamstring 'pretty good'
    Nationals manager Matt Williams said that an MRI on Bryce Harper's right hamstring came back "pretty good."

    Advice: Williams added that Harper is "better, but still a little tight," so that's why he's out of the lineup again on Friday. It sounds like the outfielder has a good shot to return at some point over the weekend.
    Jun 26, 2:24 pm
  • Moncada doubles, steals two bases
    Red Sox prospect 2B Yoan Moncada went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored and two stolen bases on Thursday for Low-A Greenville.

    Advice: Moncada has struggled this season in his highly anticipated pro debut, batting just .215/.305/.312 through 26 games in the South Atlantic League. His double on Thursday was his fourth of the season, and he also has a home run and triple. The 20-year-old phenom has had some swing-and-miss and pitch-recognition issues in the early going, resulting in a 27.6% strikeout rate in 105 plate appearances. However, that was to be expected considering he hadn’t played professionally since 2013, prior to defecting from Cuba.

  • Bryce Harper (leg) out of lineup again Friday
    Bryce Harper (leg) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Harper has missed two starts in a row because of cramping in his right leg. He should be ready to return at some point over the weekend. Clint Robinson is getting another start in right field.
    Jun 26, 12:39 pm
  • Travis (shoulder) returns from disabled list
    Blue Jays activated 2B Devon Travis from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Travis wound up missing over a month of action with a left shoulder injury. He'll return to his role as the Jays' starter at second base.
    Jun 26, 12:03 pm
  • De La Rosa impressive in no-decision
    Rubby De La Rosa spun seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

    Advice: De La Rosa left with the lead, but the Diamondbacks' bullpen quickly coughed it up in the eighth inning. Still, it was a very impressive outing at a tough place to pitch. De La Rosa gave up just five hits and one walk while striking out five, with the only damage coming on a solo homer from Nolan Arenado in the sixth. The 26-year-old has allowed just two earned runs in 22 innings over his last three starts, improving his ERA from 5.84 to 4.69 in the process. He'll try to keep it going against the Dodgers next week at home.
    Jun 25, 4:02 pm
  • Rizzo's 3-hit, 2-double night goes to waste
    Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, but the Cubs were unable to capitalize in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Rizzo and leadoff man Chris Denorfia were the only ones in the lineup doing much of anything. The Cubs were unable to bring Rizzo around to score each of the three times he reached base. The first baseman has been one of the best hitters in the league -- non-Bryce-Harper division -- with a .312/.421/.586 triple-slash line, 15 home runs, 43 RBI, and 11 stolen bases.
    Jun 25, 3:00 pm
  • DeShields (hammy) to begin rehab stint Sat.
    Delino DeShields (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: DeShields has been sidelined since June 15 with a strained left hamstring. He should be ready to return to the Rangers right around when he's first eligible.
    Jun 25, 2:13 pm
  • D.J. LeMahieu getting day off on Thursday
    D.J. LeMahieu is getting a day off on Thursday.

    Advice: Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez are also absent from the Rockies' starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Diamondbacks. Rafael Ynoa will start at second base and bat second for Colorado.
    Jun 25, 10:03 am
  • Harper (leg cramp) out of Nats' lineup Thurs.
    Bryce Harper (leg) is not in the Nationals' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Braves.

    Advice: Harper received treatment for a cramp in his right leg after Wednesday's game and will get a day of rest on Thursday. Clint Robinson is starting in right field and batting cleanup in the Nationals' series finale with Atlanta.
    Jun 25, 9:42 am
  • Duffy pitches well in return to the mound
    In his return to the rotation, Danny Duffy surrendered two runs -- one earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: After throwing four shutout innings, Duffy looked to be a lock for the win cradling a 7-0 lead. Instead, he couldn't escape the fifth inning and got the hook at 88 pitches, gifting the victory to reliever Ryan Madson. The left-hander, sidelined with biceps tendinitis since late May, has a tough assignment in Houston next time around.
