  • Elvis Andrus goes hitless in fourth straight
    Elvis Andrus went hitless in a fourth straight game Saturday, dropping his average to .237.

    Advice: Andrus seemed to be heating up last week, but it proved to be a mirage. It'd be one thing if he were still the excellent defensive shortstop he was a couple of years ago, but since he's not, he's a definite problem for the Rangers right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores singles three times in loss to Dodgers
    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Flores knocked in a run with a single in the eighth inning. He's been absolutely sizzling this holiday weekend, with seven hits in his last 11 at-bats and back-to-back three-hit games. His recent hot stretch is not indicative of how he's been hitting all season, as he's slashing .248/.280/.398 with 10 homers and 35 RBI. The power and run-production are swell enough, but the average could use some work. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Flaherty optioned, could be back Monday
    Orioles optioned 2B Ryan Flaherty to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: The Orioles needed to make room for Jonathan Schoop. Flaherty could return to the roster as soon as Monday. That's when the O's are expected to place Nolan Reimold on the paternity list. Usually when someone gets sent down they have to stay in the minors for a minimum of 10 days, but that doesn't apply to players on paternity leave. Rotoworld.com

  • Bogaerts has two hits, two RBI vs. Astros
    Xander Bogaerts was 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk against the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: Bogaerts had an RBI single in the first inning before knocking in another run with a double in the fifth. He's hitting .375 over his last 13 games and has raised his overall line to .302/.340/.416 on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Justin Turner not in Dodgers lineup Saturday
    Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Saturday against the Mets.

    Advice: It doesn't appear to be anything other than a routine day of rest for Turner. Alberto Callaspo will draw the start at third base and hit seventh against right-hander Matt Harvey on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Iglesias not in Tigers lineup Saturday
    Jose Iglesias is not in the Tigers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a day of rest for the slick-fielding shortstop. Josh Wilson will draw a rare start in his place and bat eighth against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Rotoworld.com

  • Cliff Pennington comes up big as Arizona wins
    Cliff Pennington delivered a game-tying single in the sixth and a game-ending sac fly in the 10th as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 4-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Pennington remains a fine utilityman, but the Diamondbacks haven't gotten a ton of use from him this year with Nick Ahmed playing well at short and Aaron Hill acting as the primary fallback at second and third. The runs batted in he collected tonight were just his sixth and seventh of the season, and it was also only his second multihit game. Rotoworld.com

  • Wilmer Flores goes 3-for-4 in Mets' win
    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with an RBI as the Mets beat the Dodgers 2-1 on Friday.

    Advice: Flores singled in the Mets' first run in the fourth and collected an infield single during the ninth-inning rally that decided the game. The three hits match his total from his previous six starts combined. He does have 10 homers this season, but getting on base just hasn't been a strength for him. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:52 pm
  • Brad Miller delivers eighth homer
    Brad Miller collected his eighth homer and his 12th double Friday against the A's.

    Advice: It's Miller's second homer in four games. His struggles in limited action against left-handers have taken a toll on his numbers, but he's hitting .267/.357/.487 versus righties. Rotoworld.com

  • Sano drives in first career run with single
    Miguel Sano collected his first major league RBI in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: The all-universe prospect singled home Eddie Rosario in the second inning. He later added a double to finish 2-for-4. Sano did strike out twice, but Twin fans should be happy to see that he seems to be fitting in just fine to start his major league career. Sano hit .274/.374/.544 with 15 homers and 48 RBI through 66 Double-A games prior to his call-up. Rotoworld.com

  • Correa homers, picks up three hits vs BOS
    Carlos Correa went 3-for-6 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 12-8, 10-inning win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Correa's homer off Craig Breslow in the eighth inning was the rookie phenom's sixth of the season and his RBI single in the 10th snapped an 8-8 tie. The 20-year-old shortstop has lived up to the hype since his call-up and is currently slashing .300/.320/.570 with six homers and 17 RBI. There are bound to be bumps in the road as major league pitchers make adjustments, but Correa's career is off to a fantastic start. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:17 pm
  • Ramirez homers off Straily in loss to Astros
    Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Ramirez's solo homer in the second inning opened the scoring for the game. He drove in his second run of the contest on a fielder's choice in the fifth inning of a wild contest that saw the teams combine for 28 hits and 20 runs. The outfielder was hit in the left hand on June 24, but after missing a week, he's played in each of the last three games and is now working on an eight-game hitting streak as he looks to add to his 17 homers, 41 RBI and .280/.328/.500 triple-slash. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:56 pm
  • Erick Aybar goes 5-for-5, leads Angels to win
    Erick Aybar had a terrific night at the plate in Friday's 8-2 victory over the Rangers, going 5-for-5 with a double and two RBI.

    Advice: He also scored a pair of runs in the contest. Aybar capped off the Halos' six-run uprising in the second inning with a two-run single. He has been a very solid and stable source of fantasy production at the shortstop position this season, slashing .274/.315/.336 with 25 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:30 pm
  • Hernandez drives in lone run in loss to ATL
    Cesar Hernandez went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Hernandez's RBI single off Julio Teheran in the fourth inning would score the only run that the Phillies managed in the game. While his power is almost non-existent, he should continue to see at-bats as long as he's able to keep up the average portion of his .285/.374/.376 slash-line. Rotoworld.com

  • Mets reportedly willing to overpay on Zobrist
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets are willing to overpay to acquire Ben Zobrist from the Athletics.

    Advice: With the A's winning 12 of their last 18 games, there is hope within the organization that they could still make a run for the postseason, so at least for now Zobrist has been pulled off the trade block. That being said, you never want to give away leverage in a negotiating situation and now that the word is out A's general manager Billy Beane is likely to demand a king's ransom from the Mets in exchange for Zobrist.

  • Christian Colon optioned to Triple-A
    Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha.

  • Athletics not sellers at this point
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Athletics have "backed away from selling after winning more games recently."

    Advice: The A's have gone 12-6 over their last 18 games to pull within 6.5 games of a Wild Card spot. It's still quite a bit of ground to make up, but it's no surprise that they appear to want to ride things out for a while longer before making a decision on which direction to go. Heyman confirms a previous report that the Mets are one of many clubs in on Ben Zobrist. The Nationals, Cubs and Yankees have also been connected to the versatile Zobrist. Rotoworld.com

  • Semien corks 7th HR in win vs. the Mariners
    Marcus Semien hit a solo homer in a 4-0 win versus Seattle on Thursday.

    Advice: Semien finished 1-for-3. His big contribution of the night was talking Roenis Elias deep in the fifth inning to give the A's a 3-0 cushion. Semien is slashing .259/.309/.402 and is on pace for 14 homers and 12 steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Santana has RBI triple in win
    Danny Santana went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple in Thursday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: His fifth-inning triple was the only run of the game until Eduardo Escobar drove in a run in the ninth for some insurance. Coming into Thursday's action, Santana had just two hits in 17 at-bats since returning from the minors. This was his first multi-hit game since way back on May 6. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:37 pm
  • Sano has infield single in MLB debut
    Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with an infield single in his major league debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano lined out to center field in his first at-bat before striking out swinging in his next two chances. The infield single came in the top of the ninth inning. The Twins plan to use the 22-year-old as their regular designated hitter for the time being, so his power upside is well worth the flier in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brad Miller to remain M's starting shortstop
    Despite the return of Chris Taylor, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon clarified Thursday that Brad Miller will remain the team's starting shortstop.

    Advice: The 25-year-old has struggled at the dish this season, slashing .238/.319/.403 with seven homers and 22 RBI in his 74 games. It sounds like it's a vote of confidence from the skipper, but if Taylor continues to mash the baseball he'll find his way into more playing time soon enough. Rotoworld.com

    Thursday, 2:39 pm
  • Sano batting sixth in MLB debut Thursday
    Miguel Sano will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth in his MLB debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano was called up Thursday after batting .274/.374/.544 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI over 66 games this season with Double-A Chattanooga. The 22-year-old offers massive power potential from the right side of the plate. He's expected to serve as the primary DH now that Kennys Vargas has been demoted, so he's well worth a flier in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Herrera hits two-run homer and sacrifice fly
    Jonathan Herrera went 1-for-2 with a homer and three RBI in Thursday afternoon's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Herrera sacrificed in a run in the second inning, then took Mets starter Jacob deGrom deep for a two-run homer in the sixth to account for his three RBI on the day. It was his first long ball of the season. Over 70 at-bats, he's hitting .229/.250/.314, numbers that shouldn't put him near any fantasy radars. Rotoworld.com

  • Aviles launches go-ahead homer in 10th
    Mike Aviles hit a go-ahead solo home run in the 10th inning on Thursday, helping to propel the Indians to a 5-4 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Aviles homered off of Xavier Cedeno to lead off the 10th inning. His run would stand as the difference in the eventual 5-4 win. Across 153 at-bats, the veteran infielder has smacked four home runs and is hitting .256/.312/.365. Aviles is who he is as a player and there's no fantasy upside here. Rotoworld.com

  • Rojas triples, singles twice in win over SF
    Miguel Rojas went 3-for-4 with a triple in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Rojas was called up in late June to act as a utility bat. The three hits he recorded on Thursday were his first three of the season. Playing for Triple-A New Orleans prior to the call-up, he hit .302/.345/.431 over 64 games. He doesn't figure to see enough significant at-bats to become fantasy relevant. Rotoworld.com

  • Mariners DFA veteran Willie Bloomquist

If Bloomquist decides to hang up his cleats, he'll finish his career with 778 hits in 1,055 big league appearances. Rotoworld.com

The 22-year-old was sporting a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level and he's a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues for his massive power potential.

  • Starlin Castro delivers in extras for Cubs
    Starlin Castro knocked in the go-ahead run with an infield single as the Cubs beat the Mets 2-0 in 11 innings Wednesday.

    Advice: Castro legged out his little chopper to third, scoring Anthony Rizzo in the process. The Cubs then added a second run on Miguel Montero's single. Castro also doubled earlier in the game. It was just hit seventh double of the year after he had 33 in 2014 and 34 in 2013. Rotoworld.com

  • Twins calling up top prospect Miguel Sano
    MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins are calling up prospect Miguel Sano.

    Advice: Kennys Vargas has already been optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a roster spot. Sano, 22, boasts a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level. He's primarily played third base in the minors, but look for the Twins to use him as their everyday designated hitter. Sano has been a consensus top-20 prospect for going on four years and is worth a shot in every mixed fantasy league for his power potential. Rotoworld.com

  • Miller homers as Mariners blank the Padres
    Brad Miller launched a two-run home run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mariners shut the Padres out 5-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller took Ian Kennedy out to right-center in the fourth inning for a two-run homer, making it a 4-0 Mariners lead at the time. It's his seventh homer of the season. He looks certain to surpass his career high of 10 set last season. He's also knocked in 22 runs while batting a passable .237/.316/.404. Rotoworld.com

    Hanley Ramirez (hand) will return to the Red Sox' lineup on Wednesday.

    Tuesday, 7:30 pm
  • Hernandez to get a chance to stick at 2B?
    Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said Tuesday that he "would like to think that Cesar (Hernandez) has proven that he deserves a chance to be the everyday second baseman."

    Advice: Hernandez, 25, entered Tuesday batting .277/.365/.365 on the season and .328/.394/.406 in June. Chase Utley, meanwhile, is on the disabled list with an ankle injury and sports an ugly .179/.257/.275 line this season. It's hard to believe the Phils would bench Utley even given his struggles, and Mackanin did note that he didn't "want to get ahead of myself." However, if Hernandez keeps performing, it's possible. Notable is that the Phillies have a $15 million club option for 2016 on Utley that automatically vests if he reaches 500 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:31 pm
  • Hanley (hand) will take BP on Tuesday
    Hanley Ramirez (hand) is scheduled to take batting practice before Tuesday's game in Toronto.

    Advice: Hanley won't be in Boston's starting lineup, but he appears to be progressing nicely from his bruised left hand. Rusney Castillo is with the Red Sox in Toronto as insurance, but it doesn't sound like he'll be needed. Hanley should return either Wednesday or Thursday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:03 pm
  • Hernandez stays hot with 2 more hits in loss
    Cesar Hernandez's bat continued to stay hot as he went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run, and a stolen base in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Fresh off a four-hit performance on Sunday, Hernandez logged his fifth multi-hit performance in seven games on Monday. He knocked in the Phillies' first run in the first inning with an infield single and later came around to score on a balk. Hernandez is batting .277/.365/.365 with 25 runs scored, 16 RBI, and seven stolen bases and is now getting regular at-bats while Chase Utley is sidelined. It's not known yet when Utley returns, so those in daily leagues might find utility in Hernandez as a cheap source of stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley Ramirez (hand) takes swings off tee
    Hanley Ramirez (hand) took some swings off a tee Monday.

    Advice: Ramirez was out of the lineup for a fifth straight game Monday, but X-rays and an MRI came back clean and he's ready to ramp up his swinging. That the Red Sox had him fly to Toronto indicates they're confident the outfielder will be ready to return to the lineup at some point between now and when the series concludes Thursday.

  • Bogaerts knocks in 2 runs, extends hit streak
    Xander Bogaerts proved to be the deciding factor as the Red Sox took down the Blue Jays on Monday, delivering a two-run double.

    Advice: Bogaerts broke a scoreless tie in the third inning with a double, his only hit in four at-bats. It proved to be the deciding factor in a two-run, low-scoring victory. The shortstop is on a six game hitting streak. Bogaerts, on the year, is hitting .294/.327/.409 with three home runs, 33 RBI, and four stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanley (hand) shooting to return by Thursday
    Hanley Ramirez (hand) is hoping to return to the lineup by Thursday.

    Advice: Tests have confirmed that Ramirez is merely dealing with a bruise on his left hand, but he remains sore and will have to ramp up a swinging progression before being cleared to return to action. Hanley hasn't played since last Wednesday. Alejandro De Aza has been filling in in left field. Rotoworld.com

    Hanley Ramirez (hand) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday.

  • Wilmer Flores officially moving to second base
    The Mets plan to use Wilmer Flores at second base when Daniel Murphy returns from the disabled list.

    Advice: Flores had been splitting time with Ruben Tejada at shortstop. Now he'll move to second with Murphy taking over at third base. Murphy could even see time at first when Lucas Duda needs a day off. Light-hitting second baseman Dilson Herrera appears to be the odd man out. Rotoworld.com

  • Starlin Castro goes hitless in loss to Cards
    Starlin Castro went hitless in four at-bats as the Cubs fell to the Cardinals on a rainy night in St. Louis on Sunday.

    Advice: He finished the night 0-for-4 with a strikeout. Castro has been a bit of a disappointment at the dish this season, slashing just .260/.292/.338 with five homers and 35 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond's homer not enough as the Nats lose
    Ian Desmond walked and hit a two-run home run in four trips to the plate, but the Nationals couldn't overcome the Phillies in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Desmond clubbed a two-run home run off of Severino Gonzalez in the fourth inning, helping chip into the four-run deficit the Nationals had entering the frame. It's his seventh round-tripper of the year and his 22nd and 23rd RBI's. He carries a mediocre .225/.269/.356 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 6:40 pm
  • Hernandez's four-hit day contributes to a win
    Cesar Hernandez singled four times in as many at-bats, helping the Phillies in a win over the Nationals in the back end of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Advice: It's the second four-hit game of Hernandez's career, with the other occuring on September 28, 2013. The Phillies, despite scoring eight runs, only brought him home once, at the end of their four-run second inning. Hernandez has been hitting well as of late, logging multi-hit efforts in three of his last five games. With Chase Utley on the shelf, he should be a regular in the lineup. He's hitting .271/.361/.361 in 163 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 6:38 pm
  • Aybar (hamstring) expected to return Monday
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday that he expects Erick Aybar (hamstring) to return to the starting lineup on Monday.

    Advice: Aybar left Friday's game with tightness in his left hamstring and sat out the remainder of the weekend as a precaution. The 31-year-old is hitting .261/.303/.308 with one homer and 21 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Correa has two hits, scores twice vs. Yanks
    Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in a win over the Yankees on Sunday.

    Advice: Correa twice doubled off Yankees starter Michael Pineda, but the first one was a lazy fly ball that fell between Garrett Jones and Brett Gardner. Gardner proceeded to boot the ball, allowing Correa to round the bases and score. Correa scored another run on an Evan Gattis triple later in the game. The shortstop is as advertised through his first 20 games, hitting .314/.337/.593 with 15 RBI and 13 runs scored. Rotoworld.com
