  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Lind launches 13th homer to help beat Reds
    Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Lind connected for his 13th homer when he took Reds starter Josh Smith deep in the fourth inning. He also added a single and walked twice to finish the day 2-for-3. Toiling away for a bad Brewers team, Lind is quietly posting a .295/.370/.507 triple-slash line with 13 homers and 48 RBI. After some lean years with the Blue Jays, his bat has come back in style over the last two-going-on-three seasons. Rotoworld.com

  • Frazier doubles twice in loss to Brewers
    Todd Frazier went 4-for-5 with two doubles in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Frazier's two doubles gave him 24 for the season, a fantastic indication of just how well he's been hitting. For comparison's sake, Frazier's career-high for doubles was 29 in 2013. That number should be bypassed soon enough. From the wider angle, he's currently hitting .289/.348/.610 with 25 home runs, 54 RBI and eight steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Mauer doubles and homers to down Royals
    Joe Mauer went 4-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Royals.

    Advice: Did somebody ask for fireworks in Kansas City? Mauer wasted little time putting the Twins on the board this Fourth of July, taking Joe Blanton deep to right after a Brian Dozier single in the first inning and staking his team to a 2-0 lead. Mauer would also double and single in the contest to finish 4-for-5. Despite a relatively light (by his standards) slash-line of .272/.341/.388, Mauer's been a productive run-producer and has now driven in 43 runs. His career best for RBI in a season was 96 in 2009 and while he's unlikely match that this year, an RBI total in the mid-to-high 80's is within reach at the rate he's currently going. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez smacks solo homer to help lead win
    Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Gonzalez took Mets starter Matt Harvey deep for his 15th homer of the year in the fifth inning and with the RBI, Gonzalez has now batted in an even 50 for the season. His season-long triple-slash looks solid at .293/.367/.514, but it should be noted that after a molten hot April, he's posted progressively lower numbers each of the last two months. In June, he hit just .248/.320/.381. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Morse ready to return from DL
    Marlins activated Michael Morse (back) from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Miami went struggling right-hander Jarred Cosart to Triple-A New Orleans in the corresponding roster move. Morse hit .270 with one homer and four RBI during his 11-game rehab assignment. He'll share time at first base with hot-hitting Justin Bour. Rotoworld.com

  • Ruf smacks three-run homer in loss to Braves
    Darin Ruf went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Ruf took an Alex Wood offering out of the park in the fifth inning to pull the Phillies to within 9-4. Suffice it to say, the Phillies lost the game. Ruf was called up on June 24 to take Chase Utley's (ankle) spot on the active roster. Across 118 major league at-bats this season, he's hitting .229/.268/.390 with four homers and 14 RBI.

  • Braves still looking to move Chris Johnson
    Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports the Braves are still looking to trade Chris Johnson, including deals where he would be "attached to another player."

    Advice: The Braves used this same technique in April when the Padres were forced to acquire Melvin Upton Jr. in order to get Craig Kimbrel. Johnson has hit just .258 since his breakout season in 2013. He'll be a free agent after next season. Rotoworld.com

    Diamondbacks optioned 1B/OF Danny Dorn to Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: The D'Backs needed to clear space for Patrick Corbin and Oscar Hernandez, who are both coming off the 60-day DL. Dorn has just five hits in 29 at-bats for the big club this year. He'll get another shot when the rosters expand in September, if not sooner. Rotoworld.com

  • Yangervis Solarte goes deep on Saturday
    Yangervis Solarte belted his fourth home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: His solo blast off Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez in the fourth inning wound up being the extent of the Padres offense in the contest. He finished the day 1-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.298/.378 with four homers and 30 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

    Tyler Moore was 3-for-4 with two doubles and four RBI against the Giants on Saturday.

    Advice: Moore doubled home a run in the fourth inning before hitting a two-run double in the sixth. He then added an RBI single in the seventh. It was his first three-hit game of the season. The 28-year-old is batting .227/.277/.400 in part-time duty this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Victor Martinez not an option at first base
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Saturday that Victor Martinez is not considered an option to play first base in the wake of the Miguel Cabrera injury.

    Advice: The Tigers are left scrambling at first base after losing their best hitter for the next six weeks, but Ausmus said he was concerned about trusting Martinez there for an extended period of time. It sounds as though they'll roll with a combination of Alex Avila, Andrew Romine and Jefry Marte for the time being. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera expected to miss six weeks
    Miguel Cabrera is expected to be sidelined for six weeks with a grade 3 left calf strain.

    Advice: The Tigers had hoped that he would be ready to return shortly after the All-Star break, but it appears that the All-Star slugger will be on the shelf until late August. It will be interesting to see if the Tigers look to acquire a bat to replace Cabrera in the lineup, or if his untimely injury will force Dave Dombrowski to become a seller at the trade deadline.

  • Tigers place Miguel Cabrera (calf) on DL
    Tigers placed 1B Miguel Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left calf.

    Advice: It's the first time in Cabrera's career that he has been on the disabled list. This is a major blow to the Tigers and to fantasy owners, as the All-Star slugger was hitting an absurd .350/.456/.578 with 15 homers and 54 RBI on the season. The hope is that he will be able to return immediately after the All-Star break. In a corresponding move, Jefry Marte was recalled from Triple-A Toledo. Rotoworld.com

  • Reds have no interest in trading Todd Frazier
    Reds general manager Walt Jocketty clarified Thursday that the team will not trade third baseman Todd Frazier.

    Advice: The Reds are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline and have several pieces that should be very popular commodities. Frazier won't be one of them though. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing .281/.341/.600 with 25 homers, 54 RBI and eight stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Moss cranks two-run homer in win over Pirates
    Brandon Moss went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Moss launched his two-run shot off of Pirates starter Charlie Morton in the second inning. It was the first baseman's 14th bomb of the season and pushed his RBI total to 44. He might not hit for much average (currently .230), but his 14 homers put him on track to come close to--if not surpass--the career-high 30 he smacked in 2013. Moss is looking to post his fourth straight season with 20 or more long balls. Rotoworld.com

  • Solarte triples in win over Cardinals
    Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Friday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Don't expect to see Solarte legging out triples on a regular basis. The three-bagger was his first of the season and just the second of his career. He's hitting .249/.299/.367 with three homers and 29 RBI for the 2015 campaign and shouldn't be relied upon in fantasy formats, despite the newfound existence of wheels on those feet. Rotoworld.com

  • Mark Canha goes 2-for-4, knocks in three
    Mark Canha went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the Mariners on Friday.

    Advice: The right-handed-hitting Canha keeps starting against lefties, even though he's struggled mightily against them this year. He did have a single against J.A. Happ tonight, but his big hit was a two-run double off right-handed reliever Carson Smith. All eight of his homers this season have come off righties. It's probably a big fluke, but the weird platoon splits are making it difficult for the A's to use him. Rotoworld.com

  • Morales doubles and singles in extras win
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Friday's 3-2, 10-inning win over the Twins.

    Advice: Morales' RBI single in the eighth inning might have been the most important hit of the game, as it knotted the score at 2-2 and allowed the Royals to eventually win in extras without having to face lock-down closer Glen Perkins. For his part, Morales is slashing .286/.347/.466 with 10 homers and 51 RBI in what's been a nice season to this point. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Ortiz's run-scoring two-bagger in the eighth inning knotted the score at 8-8, but the Astros would go on to score four times in the 10th inning to drop the Red Sox to a disappointing 37-45. The two runs driven in pushed Ortiz's season RBI total to 41. He's slashing .233/.321/.433, numbers that are a far cry from those in the height of his Hall of Fame caliber career. The counting stats are there, at least, as Ortiz has hit 14 homers and driven in the aforementioned 41 runs. Rotoworld.com

  • Brian McCann belts walkoff three-run homer
    Brian McCann belted a walkoff three-run home run in the 11th inning on Friday, propelling the Yankees to a 7-5 come-from-behind victory against the Rays.

    Advice: The Yankees were on the ropes a couple of times in the ballgame but never stopped fighting. They trailed 3-0 heading into the eighth inning where Mark Teixeira connected on a three-run homer to tie the game and force extra innings, then trailed 5-3 in the 11th before McCann's heroic blast against Steve Geltz. It was the veteran backstop's lone hit in five at-bats on the night and he also drew a walk. He has been one of the best offensive catchers in the league this season, slashing a healthy .264/.333/.477 with 13 long balls and 52 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Todd Frazier failed to pick up a hit in Friday's loss to the Brewers, finishing the game 0-for-3.

    Advice: The Reds managed just one extra-base hit in the entire contest and just one run, as the Brewers put up a rare beatdown to the tune of 12-1. Frazier's hit-less game does nothing to obscure what's been a great season to this point. The third baseman is currently slashing .281/.341/.600 with 25 homers, 54 RBI, 54 runs scored and eight steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Ausmus not optimistic on Cabrera's injury
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said after Friday's game that he isn't optimistic that Miguel Cabrera (calf) will be able to avoid the disabled list.

    Advice: The All-Star slugger was forced to leave Friday's game against the Blue Jays after sustaining a left calf strain while running to second base in the fourth inning. He's set to undergo an MRI exam on Saturday, but it sounds as though the most logical scenario has him heading to the disabled list and returning after the All-Star break. The Tigers should have an update on his status after his MRI. Rotoworld.com

    Victor Martinez went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored on Friday as the Tigers topped the Blue Jays 8-6.

    Advice: Since returning from the disabled list on June 19, his bat has certainly perked up, hitting .321 (18-for-56) with a homer and 10 RBI. With Miguel Cabrera leaving Friday's game with a calf injury, Martinez could be required to shoulder a large load in the Tigers' offense in the coming weeks. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Cabrera was running to second base on a 3-2 pitch to Victor Martinez when he pulled up lame. He had to be assisted off the field by the training staff and was walking with a noticeable limp. The Tigers should have an update on his status soon, but any sort of extended absence would be a deadly blow to the Tigers chances of a postseason berth. Rotoworld.com

Prior to his 11th inning heroics, he delivered an RBI single as part of a three-run uprising in the first inning against Phillies starter Chad Billingsley.

    Advice: Incredibly, it's the second time in four games for the Rays that Krauss, a left-handed hitter, has been replaced by a right-handed pinch-hitter against a right-handed pitcher. Which makes one wonder why the Rays are playing him at first base or why they bothered acquiring him in the first place. He's 1-for-10 so far for the team. Rotoworld.com

  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded.

  • Cuddyer 'definitely concerned' about knee
    Michael Cuddyer admitted that he was "definitely concerned" about the left knee injury that forced him from Tuesday's game versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Cuddyer said he first felt pain in the knee while running to first base after his first plate appearance, but he wasn't removed until the seventh. The veteran outfielder will undergo an MRI on Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage, but it sounds like a trip to the disabled list could be in the offing. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Cuddyer (knee) to have MRI Wed.
    Michael Cuddyer will undergo an MRI on his left knee Wednesday.

    Advice: Cuddyer left Tuesday's game against the Cubs after injuring the knee. It's unclear how worried the Mets are about the outfielder at this point, but the fact that he's having the MRI certainly creats some cause for concern. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Cuddyer left Tuesday's game versus the Cubs with a sore left knee.

    Advice: Cuddyer didn't suffer an obvious injury, so it's unclear how he was hurt. The Mets should have more on the veteran outfielder's status later Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

    Marlins manager Dan Jennings said Michael Morse (back) will be activated in the next few days.

    Advice: Morse was pulled off his rehab assignment on Monday after tweaking a muscle in his back, but tests taken Tuesday showed nothing major. Morse was originally placed on the disabled list May 23 with a finger sprain. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Morse has returned to Miami after tweaking a back muscle during his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Morse was considered likely to be activated Tuesday, but that's obviously not going to happen now. No word yet on how much time he'll miss. The 33-year-old has already been sidelined since May 23 with a finger sprain. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Carter swats 14th homer as Astros down KC
    Chris Carter swatted his 14th home run of the season in a 1-for-4 effort as the Astros downed the Royals 6-1 on Monday.

    Advice: Carter added some superfluous offense with a solo shot off of Brandon Finnegan in the fifth inning for what turned out to be the Astros' final run. The slugger is hitting .198/.315/.405 with 14 home runs and 38 RBI in 76 games. It's worth noting that, through 76 games last season, he had a .189/.269/.421 batting line with 15 home runs and 35 RBI. He finished the year at .227/.308/.491 with 37 home runs and 88 RBI, so a summer surge may yet await him. Rotoworld.com

  • Frazier slugs 25th home run as the Reds lose
    Todd Frazier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Mets on Sunday.

    Advice: Frazier tied the game up at 2-2 with a solo home run off of Steven Matz. The Reds were otherwise not able to accomplish much offensively. Frazier's career year continues, now sitting on 25 home runs with 53 RBI, eight stolen bases, and a .287/.350/.618 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

    Adam Lind hit a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Lind hit the two-run shot off Casey Fien in the eighth inning. It was his 11th home run of the season and his only hit in four at-bats on the day. The first baseman, who may be a popular trade chip at the deadline next month, is hitting .291/.362/.494 with 39 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com

    David Ortiz walked and hit a two-run home run in four plate appearances Sunday as the Red Sox took down the Rays.

    Advice: Ortiz made it a 4-0 game when he clubbed a two-run home run to right-center off of Chris Archer, one of three homers his team hit on the afternoon. The veteran has 12 home runs on the season, but has hit half of them in the last three and a half weeks. He has also knocked in 35 runs while batting .231/.318/.420. Rotoworld.com

  • Cuddyer not in lineup for Mets on Sunday
    Michael Cuddyer is not in the Mets starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

    Advice: Cuddyer went 1-for-6 with a pair of strikeouts on Friday/Saturday. He's in a 6-for-45 (.133) slump over his last 13 games, and could probably benefit from the mental health day. John Mayberry Jr. will start in left field and bat sixth for the Mets on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez provides 3 hits, RBI in a win
    Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI double in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

    Advice: Gonzalez added some insurance in a low-scoring affair, doubling in the seventh inning to make it a 2-0 ballgame. While no one realistically expected him to maintain a 1.000 OPS over the course of the season, his June swoon has caused his OPS to drop 137 points since the beginning of the month. He's still batting a very productive .297/.371/.518 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • McCann hits grand slam, Yankees top Astros
    Brian McCann went 2-for-4 with a grand slam as the Yankees outlasted the Astros 9-6 on Saturday.

    Advice: McCann took Astros starter Brett Oberholtzer deep for the salami in the first inning. The homer was McCann's 12th of the year and his third in the last five games. His good afternoon has his line up to .274/.341/.489 with 49 RBI. That's good for fifth-most RBI in the American League. Rotoworld.com

    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-3 with two RBI to help the Royals edge the Athletics 3-2 on Saturday.

    Advice: Morales' two-run single in the sixth inning was the difference in the game. He's got a 10-game hitting streak that has his line up to .292/.353/.469. His 48 RBI are good for sixth-most in the American League. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Turner took Marlins starter Tom Koehler deep in the first inning to give the Dodgers an early lead. He finished 2-for-4 with a single to go along with the homer. It has been a legitimate breakout year for the 30-year-old, who is hitting .320/.392/.584 with 36 RBI and 30 runs scored in 66 games. Rotoworld.com

    Joe Frisaro of MLB.com believes that Michael Morse will rejoin the Marlins within the next couple of days.

    Advice: With the injury to Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlins need a powerful bat in the middle of their lineup, and hope that Morse is healthy enough to provide that. He has looked good on his minor league rehab assignment and should be activated before the end of the weekend. Rotoworld.com

    Marc Krauss had an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Krauss was playing his first game with the Rays after being acquired from the Angels on Thursday. The 27-year-old should see part-time duty at first base until James Loney (finger) is ready to return from the disabled list. There's some pop in his bat, but it's hard to recommend him outside of deeper AL-only formats. He came into Friday's action with a .194/.268/.335 batting line in the majors. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Forsythe cooled off significantly earlier this month, but he's hitting .476 (20-for-42) over his last 11 games. With a .298/.378/.453 batting line to go along with eight home runs, 32 RBI, and seven steals, he's been a nice surprise for the Rays and fantasy owners alike. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Cuddyer went 0-for-4 with a strikeout against the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: Cuddyer had a chance to do some real damage when he came up with the bases loaded in the fifth inning, but he swung at the first pitch and lined out to center field. The 36-year-old has just one hit in his last 19 at-bats and owns a disappointing .248/.303/.370 batting line on the year. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The 27-year-old slugger struggled in his brief time with the Angels, but was hitting .289/.415/.453 with four homers and 29 RBI in 47 games at Triple-A Salt Lake. He should handle first base regularly until James Loney (finger) returns, making him worth an add in AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com

    Chris Colabello's solo home run in the top of the 12th inning was all the Blue Jays needed to capture a win over the Rays Wednesday.

    Advice: There were only a total of 10 hits between the two clubs in the pitcher's duel, and Colabello's bomb to left-center that just snuck over the wall was the last one. The Jays removed Colabello from the 40-man roster back in February after they had claimed him off waivers, but they're glad he didn't get way from them now. He's hit .343/.383/.512 with six homers over 44 games this season. Rotoworld.com
