  • Mets prospect Amed Rosario not available for trade
    The Mets have no plans to trade top SS prospect Amed Rosario.

    Advice: The Mets could be open to making a trade this summer—Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is one player they've had their eye on—but Rosario isn't going anywhere. The 20-year-old has impressed this year by hitting .317 with 42 RBI and 14 steals over 70 games for High-A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton. He's listed at No. 70 in MLB.com's prospect rankings.

  • Corey Seager not in Monday's starting lineup
    Corey Seager is getting the day off Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It's a quick turnaround for the Dodgers, who are playing at 12:35 PM ET after a night game on Sunday. Seager has appeared in all but one game this season with his last day off coming on April 15. The 22-year-old has contributed All-Star numbers this year with 16 HR and a .298 batting average in 299 at-bats. Chris Taylor will handle shortstop duties Monday while batting eighth against Bucs left-hander Francisco Liriano. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:07 am
  • Tired Xander Bogaerts struggling on defense
    Red Sox manager John Farrell says Xander Bogaerts is tired and "needs a day."

    Advice: Bogaerts' bat hasn't slowed down yet—his batting average is second in the American League behind Jose Altuve—but his defense has deteriorated over the past week with three errors in his last four games. Xander hasn't sat since April 23 and is due for a breather. Sitting Wednesday against the Rays is the most likely scenario with the Red Sox off on Thursday. That would give Xander a couple days to catch his breath. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:48 am
  • Trevor Story diagnosed with bruised finger
    Trevor Story was diagnosed with a bruised right middle finger after being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning on Sunday.

    Advice: Thankfully for the Rockies and fantasy owners alike, X-rays came back negative. Consider him day-to-day heading into next week. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:01 am

  • Jordy Mercer leaves with head and ear injury
    Jordy Mercer was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Dodgers with head and right ear discomfort.

    Advice: Mercer sustained the injury while sliding into second base in an attempt to break up a double play. He'll likely be re-evaluated on Monday, but it doesn't sound as though a trip to the disabled list is in his future. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:52 pm
  • Trevor Story heading for X-rays on his hand
    Trevor Story is heading for X-rays on his hand after being drilled by a pitch leading off the ninth inning against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

    Advice: Story was drilled leading off the ninth inning, then came around to score the game-winning run on Mark Reynolds' walk-off blast. The Rockies are hopeful that his hand isn't broken, but it remains a very real possibility at this time. Expect an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:21 pm

  • Flores (hand) picks up pair of hits in loss
    Wilmer Flores (hand) went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: While Flores was dealing with a left hand contusion entering the weekend series, he has played in-full during each of the last two games. On Sunday, he was the only Mets batter to finish with more than one hit. His ninth-inning RBI single drew the team to within 5-2, but that would be the last of the game's scoring. With a .240/.309/.368 triple-slash over 125 at-bats, Flores does not make for any sort of legitimate fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:54 pm
  • Jed Lowrie sitting out on Sunday
    Jed Lowrie is not in the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Arismendy Alcantara is getting a start at second base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:44 am

  • Diaz blasts three-run home run on Saturday
    Aledmys Diaz blasted a three-run shot for his 10th homer of the season on Saturday, finishing the day 1-for-4 with a walk.

    Advice: Diaz is hitting .306/.365/.500 with 48 runs and 39 RBI. Those are great numbers for a shortstop who was available very late in drafts this spring. He got an opportunity to play when Jhonny Peralta got hurt and he made the most of it, keeping the gig when Peralta returned. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:59 pm
  • Desmond launches 13th home run on Saturday
    Ian Desmond connected for his 13th homer on Saturday as his resurgent season rolls on.

    Advice: Desmond added a single to finish 2-for-5 on the night. Now sporting a .322/.371/.527 slash line with 53 runs, 49 RBI and 13 stolen bases, Desmond is on pace to set career highs in every category across the board. Following last year's terrible results, he is perhaps the biggest draft day steal of the season thus far. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:15 pm

  • Correa homers and doubles as Astros win
    Carlos Correa hit his 12th home run of the season and added an RBI double on Saturday in Kansas City.

    Advice: Correa finished the day 2-for-4 with a walk. He boosted his slash line to .265/.363/.467 with the solid day at the plate. The 21-year-old second-year player hasn't quite matched the stats from his rookie season yet but his future is very bright. He has 36 runs, 42 RBI and 8 steals to go along with the 12 home runs. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:19 pm
  • Mercer goes deep for fourth time this year
    Jordy Mercer hit his fourth longball of the season on Saturday, a two-run homer off Joe Blanton of the Dodgers.

    Advice: Mercer started the season like gangbusters, hitting .381 in April. He has cooled off considerably since then however. He has a .724 OPS with 31 runs and 26 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:23 pm
  • Villar has three hits, stolen base vs. Nats
    Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored Saturday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Villar's breakout season continues, with Saturday's three-hit game counting as his fifth in his last 10 contests. He also leads the league with his 26 stolen bases. The 25-year-old is batting .299/.380/.429 overall. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:34 pm
  • Russell hits three-run homer against Marlins
    Addison Russell hit a three-run home run in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.

    Advice: The homer was Russell's seventh of the year, giving him 40 RBI and 29 runs scored. The second-year shortstop is batting .245/.338/.392 in 68 games this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:35 pm

  • Lindor enjoys first multi-homer game Saturday
    Francisco Lindor hit two home runs in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: Lindor hit a solo shot off Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez in the first inning before launching another solo dinger in the eighth. It was the first multi-homer game of the 22-year-old's young career. Lindor now has 10 home runs, 39 RBI, 47 runs scored and 12 steals this year to go with a robust .306/.365/.471 line. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:18 pm
  • Reyes to hit leadoff for Mets
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Jose Reyes will take over as the team's leadoff man when he arrives from the minors.

    Advice: Curtis Granderson has been the primary leadoff man over the past two seasons, but he'll be moved to the middle of the order. Reyes is expected to see time at third base in the minors and potentially even the outfield in order to prepare him for a super utility role. The expectation is that he could be with the big club in 7-10 days. Asdrubal Cabrera is expected to remain the primary shortstop, but the Mets are hopeful that Reyes' speed will bring a new dimension to their lineup. By the way, David Wright still leads the Mets with three steals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:42 pm

  • Motter hitless in loss to Orioles
    Taylor Motter went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Saturday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Motter is now batting .174/.275/.290 on the year. He’s been getting playing time in the outfield recently due to a long list of injuries for the Rays, but Oswaldo Arcia’s arrival should change that. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:27 pm

  • Dodgers recall INF Taylor from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled INF Chris Taylor from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Taylor was just acquired from the Mariners last weekend in exchange for right-hander Zach Lee. The 25-year-old is a .240/.296/.296 hitter in the majors and will serve as a backup infield. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:49 pm
  • Mets officially sign infielder Jose Reyes
    Mets signed INF Jose Reyes to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Reyes became a free agent at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday and it didn't take him long to officially reunite with the Mets. The plan calls for him to report to Class A Brooklyn on Sunday, where he's expected to play multiple positions before eventually joining the Mets in a utility role. The 33-year-old owns a .709 OPS since the start of 2014 and is coming off a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife, but the Mets are willing to take a chance on him to add some athleticism to their roster. "As I have expressed in the past, I deeply regret the incident that occurred and remain remorseful and apologetic to my family," Reyes said in a statement. "I have completed the counseling required by MLB, have been in ongoing therapy, and will continue with counseling going forward. I appreciate the Mets organization for believing in me and providing the opportunity to come back home to New York." Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:18 am

  • Jose Reyes-to-Mets expected Saturday
    Marc Carig of Newsday reports that the Mets are expected to officially sign Jose Reyes on Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: Multiple reporters are saying the same, as a reunion is basically seen as a foregone conclusion at this point. Reyes won't officially become a free agent until 1 p.m. ET, but Mets manager Terry Collins was already talking Friday about how the team plans to use him. The Mets would only be responsible for paying the veteran infielder a prorated portion of the major league minimum. Reyes was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week after completing a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:24 am

  • Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 and hit his first home run of the season on Friday night.

    Advice: Escobar has been a lost cause at the plate this year, batting .252/.276/.311 with 25 runs and 19 RBI. His one strength is his 10 stolen bases. He has averaged four home runs per year in his career, so tonight's bomb was a rarity. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:19 pm
  • Mets expected to sign Reyes as soon as Sat.
    Anthony DiComo of MLB.com hears from multiple major league sources that the Mets expect to sign Jose Reyes as soon as Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: Reyes was placed on release waivers on Thursday after the Rockies failed to find a trade for him and he'll officially become a free agent at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday. The Mets were originally seen as an unlikely landing spot, but a reunion has quickly picked up steam over the past few days. The Mets would only be responsible for a prorated portion of the major league minimum, so they are willing to take a chance on him even though he isn't the player he once was and recently served a suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. The expectation is that Reyes would be sent to the minors to get some at-bats while also working at third base. He would likely function in a super-utility role in his return to the Mets.

  • Machado launches 18th home run as O's win
    Manny Machado went deep for the 18th time as part of a 2-for-4 night as the Orioles defeated the Rays 6-3 on Friday.

    Advice: The elite third baseman now sports a mammoth .320/.382/.615 slash line with 52 runs and 43 RBI. He has yet to steal a base this year after swiping 20 last year. Still 23 years old, Machado should be a first round fantasy draft pick for years to come. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:43 pm
  • Ahmed (hip) not in Friday's lineup
    Nick Ahmed (hip) is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup again Friday.

    Advice: Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that Ahmed is dealing with "hip issues," but he's expected to return on Saturday. Jean Segura will play shortstop while Phil Gosselin will start at second base. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:36 pm

  • Semien's three-run homer leads A's over LAA
    Marcus Semien went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Angels.

    Advice: Semien was starter Kendall Graveman's best friend on Thursday, mashing a three-run homer in the second inning to jump the A's to a 3-0 advantage. He has six RBI over his last three games. With 13 home runs on the season, he is now just two away from matching the career-best 15 he socked in 2015. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:19 pm
  • Report: Mets targeting Jose Reyes at 3B
    If the Mets sign Jose Reyes, Newsday's Marc Carig believes the team will immediately send him to the minor leagues to work at third base.

    Advice: A Mets/Reyes union was floated out as a possibility earlier this week and now it looks like it might actually happen. Carig said he'd be "surprised at this point if Reyes ends up somewhere else." The Royals have also been linked to Reyes but the Mets have a more pressing need at third base, where David Wright (neck surgery) remains out indefinitely. Reyes has never played third base in a major league game but if he can make the transition, he'd be a big upgrade over light-hitting Wilmer Flores. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:28 pm

  • Xander Bogaerts wins game for Boston
    Xander Bogaerts singled in Mookie Betts in the bottom of the 10th to give the Red Sox an 8-7 win over the White Sox on Thursday.

    Advice: It was Bogaerts' second hit of the game, and it made a winner out of Craig Kimbrel, who came up big for a Red Sox team that badly needed it today. With the win, the Red Sox avoided what would have been the White Sox's first four-game sweep at Fenway since 1927. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:11 pm
  • Mets promote Amed Rosario to Double-A
    Mets shortstop prospect Amed Rosario has been promoted from High-A St. Lucie to Double-A Binghamton.

The 20-year-old top shortstop prospect will be one of the youngest players in the Double-A Eastern League. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:10 pm

  • Rox request release waivers on Jose Reyes
    According to the Rockies' public relations department, the club has requested release waivers on Jose Reyes.

    Advice: Reyes should officially become a free agent on Saturday. Colorado made an effort to trade the veteran shortstop, but no team had interest in taking on what's left of his contract (around $40 million) and he's also coming off a 51-game domestic violence suspension. That said, Reyes should have some suitors once he officially clears waivers. There's thought to be a level of interest from the Royals and Mets. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:19 am

  • Orlando Arcia leaves the yard twice Wednesday
    Brewers SS prospect Orlando Arcia homered twice in Wednesday's doubleheader for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Colorado Springs split the doubleheader, winning the first game before falling to Memphis in the nightcap. The 21-year-old only logged two hits in the double dip but made them count by driving in five runs. Arcia has held his own in Triple-A, batting .282 with six homers, 32 RBI and 10 steals. He was a rockstar in Double-A last season, batting .307 with 69 RBI and 25 thefts while leading Biloxi to its first division title. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:14 am

  • Eduardo Nunez getting a breather Thursday
    Eduardo Nunez is getting the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop and bat second versus Phillies right-hander Jerad Eickhoff. Nunez has run into some natural regression over the last few weeks, but he still boasts a .313/.345/.472 season slash line with nine home runs and 17 RBI in 62 total games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:25 am
  • Corey Seager hits 16th home run
    Corey Seager went 3-for-4 and hit his 16th homer Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Advice: 16 homers in 287 at-bats for Seager. Last year, he had 13 in 421 at-bats while playing in the PCL, so it seemed like it would be a while before he was going to chase 20 homers, much less 30, in the majors. Alas, here he is, on pace for 35. We don't expect him to keep that up, but he has a better chance of maintaining his current .289 average. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:55 pm
  • Rockies unlikely to find trade for Jose Reyes
    The New York Post's Ken Davidoff relays that "most industry executives surveyed believe Colorado will not find a willing trade partner for [Jose Reyes]."

    Advice: The Rockies have until Saturday to trade him. If not, they will likely release him, for a multitude of reasons. Even setting aside the uncomfortable nature of the 51-game suspension Reyes just finished serving for a November domestic violence incident, he just turned 33 years old and is owed $38 million (or thereabouts) through the end of the 2017 season. Not to mention that his current replacement at shortstop, Trevor Story, is slashing .264/.324/.549 with 18 homers and 46 RBI over 273 at-bats. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported on Monday that the Mets are at least mulling a possible reunion. There might be interest from the Royals too. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:53 pm

  • Xander Bogaerts goes 3-for-5, knocks in three
    Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI against the White Sox on Wednesday.

    Advice: The double might have been a homer, but a fan interfered with it from atop the Green Monster and it was ruled a double after replays were inconclusive. Bogaerts is having such a strong season that a three-hit game merely raises his average from .347 to .351. He's collected 104 hits, seven more than anyone else in either league. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:11 pm
  • Aledmys Diaz goes 3-for-4 with HR vs. Cubs
    Aledmys Diaz went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Wednesday in the Cardinals' 7-2 defeat of the Cubs.

    Advice: Diaz singled off Jake Arrieta in the first and fifth before cranking a two-run shot off Carl Edwards Jr. in the sixth. The 25-year-old shortstop has met some natural regression, but he still boasts an impressive .310/.362/.496 overall batting line with nine home runs and 35 RBI in 67 total games this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:45 pm
  • Jonathan Villar out Wednesday against A's

  • Semien drives in three as A's drop Brewers
    Marcus Semien went 3-for-4 with a two-run triple and three total RBI in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Semien's RBI single in the sixth inning tied the game at 2-2. He would come up again an inning later, this time with the A's holding a 3-2 lead. Semien added to that with a two-run triple. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .238/.305/.430 with 12 homers, 31 RBI and five steals over 70 games played. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:56 pm
  • Correa walks off Angels with two-run single
    Carlos Correa went 2-for-4 with a home run and a two-run, walk-off single to give the Astros a 3-2 win over the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Correa hit a solo home run in the fifth inning before coming to the plate with the bases loaded and no outs in the bottom of the ninth. He roped a Huston Street pitch to the right-center field wall to plate two and give the Astros the come-from-behind win. Correa has heated up considerably in recent days, going 8-for-21 with three homers, seven RBI and five runs scored in his last six games. The 21-year-old is batting .263/.361/.452 in 68 games overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:50 pm
  • Carlos Correa hits 10th homer for Astros
    Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, three RBI and a walk Monday as the Astros topped the Angels 10-7.

    Advice: Correa has walked in five straight games. Last month, he had one stretch in which he went 14 straight games without a walk. Hopefully, it means he's seeing the ball better and his power numbers will start to pick back up. He's been a disappointment for fantasy purposes, but the upside hasn't gone anywhere.

  • Ian Desmond hits 11th homer in win
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 and hit his 11th homer to lead the Rangers to a 4-3 win over the Orioles on Monday.

    Advice: The Rangers won despite being outhit 15-9 (and outwalked 2-1). In fact, the Orioles were the first team this year to collect 15 hits and score as few as three runs. Desmond's homer was the Rangers' lone hit to go for extra bases. His .312 average qualifies as one of the biggest surprises of the 2016 season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:07 pm

    Addison Russell went 0-for-4 on Monday and is batting .170 in 53 at-bats this month.

    Advice: Russell is leading the NL All-Star balloting at shortstop, but it doesn't seem warranted at this point. His OPS peaked at .822 on May 14, but it stands at .688 right now. He's in no danger of losing his job, but he could be rested more frequently until his slump concludes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:20 pm

    Francisco Lindor filled up the stat sheet on Monday, going 3-for-4 with a home run, stolen base and two runs scored against the Rays.

    Advice: The three-hit game was the fourth such performance in the last eight games for the 22-year-old talent. He's now got eight home runs and 12 stolen bases in 68 games. Lindor is batting .314/.375/.466 overall. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:33 pm

  • Mets 'debating internally' about Jose Reyes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears from major-league sources that the Mets are "debating internally" whether signing Jose Reyes would be worth the public-relations fallout.

    Advice: Reyes was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week on the heels of serving a 51-game suspension for a domestic violence incident with his wife. The 33-year-old could be signed at the major league minimum assuming he becomes a free agent, but the question is whether it would be worth the distraction to bring him aboard when he's clearly not the player he once was. Still, the Mets haven't ruled out the possibility, at least not yet. Rosenthal speculates that he could be a fit at either second or third base. Reyes could become a free agent as soon as this weekend. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:26 pm

  • Dodgers acquire Chris Taylor from Mariners
    Dodgers acquired INF Chris Taylor from the Mariners for RHP Zach Lee.

    Advice: The 25-year-old infielder has struggled in every chance he has received at the big league level, but was raking to the tune of .311/.388/.459 with three homers, 29 RBI and 12 stolen bases at Triple-A Tacoma. He'll add infield depth for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 6:55 pm

  • Mercer homers, drives in two in loss to Cubs
    Jordy Mercer went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Batting leadoff, Mercer cranked a homer in the first inning against Cubs starter Jon Lester to get the Bucs on the board early. He then led off the third inning with a double and scored later in the frame. Mercer has cooled from his early production, but the 29-year-old is still batting .267/.355/.356 with three homers, 24 RBI and 29 runs scored in 65 games this year. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 9:20 pm
