  • ChiSox, Rangers, O's interested in Valencia
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the White Sox, Rangers and Orioles have emerged as the most likely destinations for Danny Valencia.

    Advice: In a bit of a surprise move, Valencia was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday. He is expected to be claimed off trade waivers on Monday, which will give the Jays an opportunity to deal him. Valencia is having a terrific season, slashing .296/.331/.506 with seven long balls and 29 RBI in his 162 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:16 pm

  • Lamb doubles twice in losing effort
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Lamb doubled home a run against Astros starter Collin McHugh in the second inning. The Diamondbacks wouldn't score again in the game, though, as they fell by a score of 4-1. For the season, the Snakes' third baseman is hitting .279/.340/.425 with three homers and 24 RBI across 179 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:34 pm
  • Peterson's 3-run homer downs the Phillies
    Jace Peterson went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run, striking the big blow to defeat the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Peterson broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning when he belted an Adam Morgan offering to right field in the fifth inning. His effort helped the Braves avoid a four-game series sweep in Philadelphia. The second baseman isn't normally one for power, as he's batting .245/.322/.343 with 44 RBI and only four home runs.

  • Amarista socks homer to tie MIA in ninth
    Alexi Amarista went 2-for-4 with a triple and a game-tying two-run home run in the ninth inning of Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Amarista's triple is notable for the fact that it was the only extra-base hit allowed by Marlins starter Jose Fernandez. After Fernandez left the game, the Padres looked dead in the water until the ninth inning, when Amarista struck like lightning, belting a two-run homer off reliever A.J. Ramos with one out to tie the proceedings at two-all. The big offensive showing is all the more surprising for the fact that Amarista was dealing with an 0-for-24 skid prior to his triple. He's batting just .201/.267/.293 with three home runs and 23 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:32 pm

  • Cory Spangenberg (knee) ready for rehab
    Cory Spangenberg (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A San Antonio on Monday.

    Advice: It's unclear how many rehab games he'll need. Spangenberg has been out since late June with a bruised left knee. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:22 am

  • Aramis Ramirez sitting out on Sunday
    Aramis Ramirez is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off for Ramirez, who has just four hits in his first 30 at-bats with the Pirates. Sean Rodriguez is at third base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:46 am
  • Lonnie Chisenhall homers for Indians
    Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians' only run Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: Chisenhall is 4-for-11 in three games since returning to the majors Thursday. Since he's likely to keep on starting in the outfield against righties, he should be a nice AL-only option the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:48 pm
  • Jake Lamb getting the day off Saturday
    Jake Lamb is not in the Diamonbacks' starting lineup Saturday against the Astros.

    Advice: It's a routine day off for Lamb. Aaron Hill will grab the start at third base. Lamb has hit .248 since coming off the disabled list in early June. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:04 pm
  • Jays designate Danny Valencia for assignment
    Blue Jays designated INF/OF Danny Valencia for assignment.

    Advice: With all of the recent acquisitions that the Blue Jays have made, they were forced to make a few tough decisions on their roster and it appears that Valencia is the odd-man out. The lefty-masher was hitting .296/.331/.506 overall with seven homers and 29 RBI in 162 at-bats. He should attract interest from plenty of teams looking to upgrade their bench.

  • Blue Jays recall Kawasaki from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled INF Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 34-year-old infielder and fan favorite is hitting just .200/.294/.333 in 15 at-bats with the Blue Jays this season. He'll provide infield depth and flexibility while Devon Travis is on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:11 am
  • Alex Guerrero hits 11th homer
    Alex Guerrero hit his 11th homer Friday in the win over the Angels.

    Advice: Guerrero had been struggling mightily in his bit role, and the homer was his first since June 2. He's due additional playing time now with Justin Turner on the DL, so maybe he'll go on another role. Mixed leaguers in need of homers could do worse than rotating him in next week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:15 am
  • Lonnie Chisenhall goes 3-for-4, doubles
    Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

    Advice: Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. Ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:05 am
  • Dietrich slugs game-tying homer in ninth
    Derek Dietrich slugged a game-tying solo homer off Craig Kimbrel with two outs in the ninth inning on Friday.

    Advice: Unfortunately for the Marlins, his heroics went for naught as they fell in extra innings to the Padres. It was the lone hit in four at-bats on the night for Dietrich who is hitting .273/.373/.545 with six homers and eight RBI in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:27 pm

  • Brewers purchase contract of Elian Herrera
    Brewers purchased the contract of INF/OF Elian Herrera from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Herrera will add versatility and depth to the Brewers bench in the wake of the Carlos Gomez trade. The 30-year-old hit just .212/.259/.374 in 99 at-bats with the Brewers earlier in the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:06 pm

  • Indians recall Lonnie Chisenhall from AAA
    Indians recalled INF Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: With Brandon Moss shipped out of town, Chisenhall could see some action in the corner outfield, where he had been working in the minors. Unless he finds everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:00 pm
  • Athletics sign Brent Morel to minors contract
    Athletics signed INF Brent Morel to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Morel elected free agency after being designated for assignment by the Pirates earlier this week. He'll function as organizational depth for the A's. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:12 pm

  • Gillaspie has two hits, two RBI versus Astros
    Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gillaspie had an RBI double in the first inning before adding an RBI single an inning later. He's enjoyed his new digs through three games, going 5-for-12 with two doubles, three RBI and three runs scored as a member of the Angels. Gillaspie is hitting .249/.288/.378 on the year after being designated for assignment by the White Sox earlier in July. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:42 pm
  • Dodgers haven't asked Guerrero about clause
    Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com reports that the Dodgers have yet to ask Alex Guerrero about waiving the opt-out clause in his contract in exchange for money.

    Advice: Guerrero has a clause in his contract that says he can become a free agent at the end of the season if he's traded. It was reported recently that he might be willing to waive it in exchange for some cash, but apparently the Dodgers have yet to ask him if that could happen. It doesn't mean it won't, of course, as there are still a few days before the deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:07 pm
  • Brent Morel elects free agency
    Brent Morel has elected free agency.

    Advice: Morel was again outrighted off the 40-man roster and has decided to look for a job elsewhere instead of reporting back to Triple-A Indianapolis. He's hitting .266/.322/.441 with nine homers at Triple-A this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:50 pm

  • Brock Holt (knee) out again Tuesday night
    Brock Holt (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Holt sat out Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a hyperextended knee and he apparently needs at least another day. Jemile Weeks will fill in at second base again on Tuesday while Alejandro De Aza will get a shot out of No. 2 spot in the order. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:25 pm

  • Dodgers discussing Guerrero in trade talks
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers have discussed parting with Alex Guerrero in trade talks.

    Advice: Guerrero has a clause in his contract that says he can become a free agent at the end of the season if he's traded, but the Los Angeles Times reported recently that he would consider waiving that right if it meant more money. Rosenthal says that the Dodgers, not surprisingly, are looking for pitching in return. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:27 pm
  • Brock Holt (knee) expected back on Tuesday
    Brock Holt (knee) is expected to return to the Red Sox' lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Holt is sitting out Monday after having to leave Sunday's contest when he hyperextended his left knee. He's ultimately expected to be fine, though. Jemile Weeks is handling second base Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:40 pm

    Brock Holt (knee) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday night versus the White Sox.

    Advice: Holt suffered a hyperextended left knee on Sunday night against the Tigers. It's thought to be a minor injury, but Jemile Weeks will fill in at second base for Boston in Monday's series opener against the Pale Hose. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:16 pm

  • Alex Guerrero (back) served as defensive sub
    Alex Guerrero served as a late-inning defensive sub in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Guerrero was a late scratch from the Dodgers' starting lineup on Friday because of stiffness in his back and he hasn't made a plate appearance since. The 28-year-old Cuban utilityman has 10 home runs and 30 RBI in just 167 plate appearances this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 27, 5:58 am
  • Holt (knee) not expected to miss any time
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Sunday's game that he doesn't expect Brock Holt (knee) to miss any time.

    Advice: Holt was forced to leave Sunday's contest against the Tigers after hyperextending his left knee. It appears to be a minor issue though, so expect the All-Star to be in the lineup for Monday's series opener against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 9:21 pm

  • Brock Holt leaves with tightness in left knee
    Brock Holt was removed from Sunday's game against the Tigers due to tightness in his left knee.

    Advice: Holt landed awkwardly while rounding first base earlier in the ballgame and was likely lifted for precautionary reasons. Jemile Weeks replaced him at second base and could see increased action if Holt if forced to miss a day or two. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 7:01 pm

  • Lamb triples in run to help down Brewers
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Lamb hit his triple off Brewers starter Matt Garza in the fourth inning. It was his fourth of the season. He also notched a double off Garza, his seventh. Lamb's hitting a decent .277/.335/.409 with two homers and 20 RBI over 159 at-bats. He missed several months with a foot injury, but has shown his versatility when healthy.

  • Leury Garcia optioned to Triple-A
    White Sox optioned INF/OF Leury Garcia to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: He was only up for a few days while Emilio Bonifacio was on bereavement. Garcia returns to a .301/.344/.372 batting line at Charlotte. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 8:09 am

  • Miami's Derek Dietrich drawing trade interest
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Marlins infielder Derek Dietrich is drawing trade interest.

    Advice: Rosenthal notes that Miami is willing to move Dietrich if the price is right, and MLB.com's Joe Frisaro adds that the Rays appear to want him. The 26-year-old has posted an excellent .301/.378/.548 batting line in 32 games this season and would take on much more fantasy value with a move to another team -- a team that will actually give him regular starts. The asking price might be high given that he's under contractual control through 2019. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 4:06 pm

  • Pirates designate Brent Morel for assignment
    Pirates designated INF Brent Morel for assignment.

    Advice: Morel had been seeing action at third base for the Pirates, but with Aramis Ramirez in tow his services were no longer needed. There's a chance that he passes through waivers unclaimed and continues to serve as organizational depth for the Buccos. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 12:36 pm

  • Aramis Ramirez bats cleanup in Pirates debut
    Aramis Ramirez is in the Pirates lineup and batting cleanup against the Nationals on Saturday.

    Advice: It'll be the first time that the 37-year-old has taken the field as a member of the Pirates since he was traded during the 2003 season. Prior to the trade, Ramirez was hitting .247/.295/.430 with 11 homers and 42 RBI in 81 games for the Brewers. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 12:29 pm
  • Alex Guerrero scratched due to back stiffness
    Alex Guerrero was scratched from the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday due to back stiffness.

    Advice: He had been in line to make a rare start in left field, but his back acted up during pregame warmups. Kike Hernandez will take his place in left field and bat sixth for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 4:36 pm
  • Angels pick up Conor Gillaspie from White Sox
    Angels acquired 3B Conor Gillaspie from the White Sox in exchange for cash considerations.

    Advice: Gillaspie had been designated for assignment last weekend after hitting just .237/.276/.364 this season. Although he's been a disappointment in 2015, Gillaspie isn't a bad option to fill in for the injured David Freese (finger) for the next few weeks at third base. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 10:05 am
