  • Franklin hits first homer, but the Rays lose
    Nick Franklin hit his first home run of the season in a losing effort against the Angels on Monday.

    Advice: Franklin had gone 2-for-29 in his first 11 games since being activated from the disabled list, so it was nice to see him have some success at the dish. He went 1-for-4 on the night. Rotoworld.com

  • Walker's double breaks tie, sends PIT to win
    Neil Walker's two-run double broke a tie and proved to be the deciding factor in Monday's victory against the Giants.

    Advice: Walker broke a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning with a two-run double to left-center off of Ryan Vogelsong. It was his only hit on the evening in four at-bats. Walker's numbers aren't where they have been compared to previous seasons, as he's hitting .263/.324/.392 with only three home runs and 19 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Tejada stays hot, gets three hits to beat SDP
    Ruben Tejada had three hits and scored twice in five at-bats as the Mets took down the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: Tejada now has three multi-hit games out of his last four. He doubled and scored in the first inning, then singled and scored in the fifth. Tejada was recently anointed the club's regular third baseman by manager Terry Collins. He has good job security as long as David Wright is out and he's hitting. Tejada is batting .274/.357/.419 with eight RBI and nine runs scored in 70 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

    Daniel Murphy went 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI single, and a two-run home run in Monday's victory versus the Padres.

    Advice: Murphy started the scoring early with an RBI single in the first inning. He added a two-run home run in the fifth, starting a four-run rally. Murphy has been up-and-down offensively this year, but is currently hitting .286/.337/.418 with four home runs and 29 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Luis Valbuena went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Orioles.

    Advice: Valbuena tied the game up in the fifth inning with a solo home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez. He also scored the go-ahead run in a four-run seventh inning. 10 of Valbuena's 11 home runs this season have been of the solo variety. Along with 19 RBI, he's hitting .196/.260/.413. Rotoworld.com

  • Dilson Herrera (finger) swinging lightly
    Dilson Herrera (finger) has begun swinging a bat lightly.

    Advice: He's also begun throwing. Herrera was unable to grip a bat or baseball just a week ago, so he appears to have made big strides with his fractured right middle finger since then. There remains no timetable for his return. Rotoworld.com

  • Marlins not looking to trade INF Martin Prado
    According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins are not looking to trade Martin Prado.

    Advice: There are multiple contending teams in need of infield help, but Frisaro notes that Prado is under contract through 2016 and the Marlins intend to compete next year even if they can't claw their way back this year. Also, the Yankees are covering $3 million of his $11 million salary. He's a relatively inexpensive glue guy for a clubhouse that needs glue guys. Rotoworld.com

  • Giavotella's two-run single leads Halos sweep
    Johnny Giavotella delivered a two-out, two-run single in the eighth inning on Sunday, breaking a 2-2 tie and propelling the Angels to a 4-2 victory over the Tigers and a completion of their four-game series sweep.

    Advice: David Price had held the Angels down most of the night, but left the bases loaded in the eighth inning and Joba Chamberlain was unable to put out the fire. Giavotella also singled, finishing the night 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI. With the two-hit effort, he's now slashing .265/.322/.348 with 17 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays place Tim Beckham on 15-day DL
    Rays placed INF Tim Beckham on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

  • Moncada collects first minor league home run
    Red Sox infield prospect Yoan Moncada blasted his first minor league homer Saturday in a win for Low-A Greenville.

    Advice: Before going deep, Moncada had been in a 1-for-14 slump. The 20-year-old is still incredibly raw. He's struck out 11 times and made four errors in his first nine games. But he'll have plenty of time to grow as he works his way through the Red Sox system. Moncada received a record $31.5 million signing bonus earlier this spring. Rotoworld.com

  • LeMahieu homers in 3-hit effort vs. Phillies
    D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run as the Rockies completed a sweep of the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: LeMahieu extended the Rockies' lead to 4-1 in the fifth inning, ripping a two-run home run to left field off of Jerome Williams. The 26-year-old is quietly having a very productive season, batting .335/.385/.441 with three home runs and 25 RBI. He also has five stolen bases -- albeit in nine attempts -- giving him some additional fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Phillips' two-run homer aids Reds in a win
    Brandon Phillips went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a solo home run in Sunday's victory against the Nationals.

    Advice: Phillips added an insurance run with a solo home run in the fifth inning, then broke a 2-2 tie and started a six-run rally with an RBI single in the seventh. Dealing with a case of turf toe, Phillips hadn't registered a hit since May 23. He's batting .291/.326/.364 with three home runs and 21 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Mets to use Tejada as primary third baseman
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that he'll use Ruben Tejada as the team's primary third baseman for the time being.

    Advice: The Mets have been struggling for stability at the position since David Wright went down, and with Tejada swinging a hot stick at the moment he'll get a chance to be in the lineup everyday. He could be worth a look as a middle infield option in NL-only or deeper mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores homers as Mets avoid sweep vs. MIA
    Wilmer Flores had one hit in four at-bats, a solo home run, as the Mets topped the Marlins on Sunday to avoid a sweep.

    Advice: Flores extended the Mets' lead to 3-1 with his third-inning blast off of David Phelps, his eighth of the season. He is tied with Jhonny Peralta for the most home runs hit by a shortstop to this point in the season with eight. Flores is hitting .244/.273/.421 with 22 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Tejada's late double sends Mets past Marlins
    Ruben Tejada finished 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

    Advice: Tejada broke a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the seventh inning with an RBI double to left-center. The three-game set against the Marlins, in which he went 5-for-13, rejuvenated Tejada's bat, raising his OPS from .641 to .724. He still doesn't have any fantasy value, however. Rotoworld.com

  • Brendan Ryan (calf) begins rehab assignment
    Brendan Ryan (calf) began a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Sunday.

    Advice: He's now back in the organization where he began his career. Frandsen, 33, has hit .309/.352/.333 at Triple-A this season and gives the Giants a solid depth utility option. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Cubs planning to target Ben Zobrist
    Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Cubs plan to target Ben Zobrist in a trade.

    Advice: He'd fit in nicely in left field and, of course, offers the versatility to play a number of positions. Zobrist played for nine years under manager Joe Maddon in Tampa Bay. A free agent after the season, Zobrist figures to be a popular trade target come July. Rotoworld.com

    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer Saturday in his return to the Mariners lineup.

    Advice: The homer was just Cano's second of the season. Hopefully, it's a sign of better days to come. He missed the previous couple of games with a stomach issue, though it seemed like the Mariners wanted to give him a bit of a break anyway. Rotoworld.com

    Cory Spangenberg went 0-for-3 in the loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

    Advice: Spangenberg has been getting a whole lot more playing time of late, but he's not really doing much with it. He's hitting .216 in 88 at-bats this month after coming in at .227 in 22 at-bats in April. It's still quite possible he'll end up back in the minors at some point. Rotoworld.com

  • Ian Kinsler hits first homer
    Ian Kinsler finally hit his first homer of the season Saturday against the Angels.

    Advice: It was his lone hit in five at-bats, but it was his first of the year to leave the yard. It was quite a power drought in an otherwise solid start. Of course, he does have 12 doubles and two triples, so he hasn't been completely punchless. Rotoworld.com

  • Groin injury sends Tolleson to disabled list
    Blue Jays placed Steve Tolleson (groin) on the 15-day disabled list.

  • Tejada clears bases with three-run double
    Ruben Tejada went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Tejada stepped up against Tom Koehler in the fourth with the bases loaded. He proceeded to unload them, doubling to center to tie the game at 5-5. The Mets wouldn't find much traction moving forward, though, ultimately losing 9-5 to the Marlins. Tejada is hitting .245/.344/.377 with a homer and seven RBI over 53 at-bats this season. He's not a relevant fantasy piece. Rotoworld.com

    Tim Beckham left Saturday's game against the Orioles with a right hamstring cramp.

  • Robinson Cano could return on Saturday
    Robinson Cano (illness) could return to the Mariners lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Cano has missed the last two games with what the Mariners now believe is an ear infection. A few days off could be a blessing in disguise for the slumping second baseman who is hitting .251/.295/.332 with just one home run and 13 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

    Brett Lawrie hit his fourth homer Friday in the win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Lawrie is batting .296 in May after coming in at .229 in April. Still, we'd be more encouraged if it didn't come with a 27/3 K/BB ratio. Incidentally, that's identical to his mark from April. He actually has a 44/2 K/BB ratio against righties and a 10/4 K/BB ratio versus lefties. Rotoworld.com

    Brandon Phillips (toe) struck out as a pinch-hitter Wednesday in the Reds' loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Phillips reaggravated the turf toe in his left foot on Monday, but that he was used as a pinch-hitter Wednesday is a good indication that he is going to avoid the disabled list. The veteran second baseman is slashing .297/.335/.355 with two home runs and 18 RBI in 41 games this year. Rotoworld.com

    Wilmer Flores knocked in the tying and game-winning runs as the Mets walked off winners in 10 innings versus the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores, who went 1-for-4 on the night, tied the game at 4-4 with an eighth-inning sacrifice fly against Ken Giles. In the 10th inning, he came to the plate with runners on the corners and two out. He lifted an Elvis Araujo offering into left field to bring in the winning run. Flores has hit for decent power but otherwise has been lackluster, batting .252/.284/.429 with seven home runs and 21 RBI. Rotoworld.com

He doubled in the sixth and later scored on a Chris Davis sacrifice fly, giving the Orioles a temporary 1-0 lead.

    Wilmer Flores cranked his seventh home run of the season Monday in the Mets' defeat of the Phillies.

    Advice: And just like that, he is leading all major league shortstops in home runs. Flores was retired in his other three at-bats Monday and is batting just .252 with a .287 on-base percentage for the season, but his pop gives him value at a position where production is scarce. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Flores can proudly tell his grandchildren that he did not strike out against Francisco Liriano in a game that saw 12 strikeouts by the former Twin. Not only did Flores not strike out, he managed the only run for the Mets (on an RBI single in the fifth inning) and was the only Met to record more than one hit.

  • Dilson Herrera (finger) progressing slowly
    Dilson Herrera (finger) remains unable to grip a baseball or a bat.

  • Ruben Tejada to get long look at 3B
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Ruben Tejada will be given multiple starts at third base.

    Advice: Eric Campbell has really struggled at the hot corner, so the Mets will give Tejada a long look at the position. With David Wright (back) looking like he'll be sidelined for a while long, Tejada could settle into the position for a while if he plays well. Rotoworld.com

  • Brett Lawrie expected to sit again Sunday
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that Brett Lawrie is "a little banged up" and he plans to rest the third baseman for a second straight day Sunday.

    Advice: The skipper wouldn't reveal exactly what Lawrie is dealing with, but whatever it is appears to be minor. He should be back in there on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Prado drives in lone run in 13-inning win
    Martin Prado's RBI single with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 13th inning made 1-0 winners out of the Marlins in Saturday's contest against the Orioles.

    Advice: Had Prado not singled, it's possible that this game simply would have sunk into a tear in the fabric of space-time, never to end. Prado made sure the universe remained intact. After Giancarlo Stanton drew an intentional walk to load the bases, Prado stepped up against T.J. McFarland and singled to end the game before any position players had to pitch. The hit extended Prado's hitting streak to six games and he's now slashing .273/.310/.341. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He has been sidelined since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on April 28, and has made very quick work of his recovery which was initially expected to extend into mid-June.

  • Brett Lawrie not in Athletics lineup Saturday
    Brett Lawrie is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Max Muncy is getting the call at the hot corner and batting fifth in the A's lineup against opposing right-hander Nathan Karns. Lawrie should be back in there for Sunday's series finale. The 25-year-old is hitting .279/.310/.364 with two homers and 16 RBI in 43 games. Rotoworld.com

  • D.J. LeMahieu hits second homer
    D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: LeMahieu is bating .326, but between his placement at the bottom of the Rockies order and his poor baserunning, he's scored just 13 runs. Fortunately, he's driven in 20, which has resulted in some surprising early-season fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays option Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham
    Rays optioned INF Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: The 25-year-old infielder went 2-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season on Friday, but became a roster casualty as the Rays needed a fresh arm in the bullpen. While he has shown flashes, he's hitting just .224/.266/.459 on the year and could benefit from everyday at-bats at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis (shoulder) expected back when eligible
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on June 1 when first eligible.

    Advice: Travis was placed on the DL on Thursday after battling a left shoulder injury for a few days. It's a minor ailment, though, as he's been given a cortisone shot and should resume full workouts before long. The rookie had been scuffling at the dish of late before the DL move, batting just .162/.205/.243 over his previous 10 games. Rotoworld.com
