  • Orioles activate Jimmy Paredes from DL
    Orioles activated INF Jimmy Paredes from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Paredes is taking the place of Jonathan Schoop on the active roster who was placed on the disabled list on Saturday with a knee injury. He'll function in a utility role for the O's.
    Today, 10:14 am
  • Yunel Escobar (groin) to undergo MRI
    Yunel Escobar (groin) will undergo an MRI on Saturday.

    Advice: Escobar said that he felt okay on Saturday and remains optimistic that he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, but the Nationals want to make sure before making a determination.

  • Jake Lamb reaches four times
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-3 with a triple, two RBI and two walks Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: Lamb did lose an at-bat to Yasmany Tomas tonight, but that's only because the rout was on. He won't be losing any starts to the Cuban defector, not with the way he's performed the first two weeks. He's 11-for-25 with nine RBI.

  • Yunel Escobar leaves with apparent injury
    Yunel Escobar was removed from Friday's game against the Phillies in the fourth inning with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Escobar appeared to come up lame while running out a ground ball in his final at-bat and did not take his place in the field defensively. The team should have an update on his status shortly.

  • Casey McGehee returns to Giants lineup
    Casey McGehee (knee) is in the Giants starting lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: McGehee drew a walk as a pinch hitter in Thursday's contest after being sidelined since Sunday. Fantasy owners can safely plug him into weekend lineups, though there's still a chance he'll be rested on Sunday as the Giants ease him back into action.
    Yesterday, 3:19 pm
  • Mike Olt (wrist) placed on disabled list
    Cubs placed 3B Mike Olt on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 15, with a hairline fracture in his right wrist.

    Advice: Olt initially hurt the wrist last Saturday, but he was allowed to take a few at-bats after that because initial tests didn't reveal the hairline fracture. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined, but with Kris Bryant up now, Olt doesn't have a path to playing time.

  • Casey McGehee draws walk as pinch-hitter
    Casey McGehee (knee) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: He was then promptly removed for pinch-runner Tim Lincecum. Although McGehee clearly isn't at 100 percent yet as he battles a bone bruise in his left knee, the expectation is that he'll return to the lineup at some point this weekend.
    Yesterday, 6:58 am
  • Mike Olt heading to disabed list for Cubs
    According to Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago, Mike Olt (wrist) will be placed on the disabled list to create room on the big league roster for Kris Bryant.

    Advice: It was only a matter of time before Bryant staked his claim to the hot corner in Chicago, and would've happened even if Olt hadn't suffered the wrist injury. He can safely be cut in NL-only formats.

  • McGehee remains out of Giants lineup
    Casey McGehee (knee) remains out of the Giants starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: The veteran third baseman is once again available to pinch hit, but isn't quite ready to man his position defensively. He should return over the weekend.
    Thursday, 3:52 pm
  • Paredes (back) to begin rehab stint Friday
    Jimmy Paredes (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Friday.

    Advice: Paredes, who began the season on the DL with a lower back strain, will play with Double-A Bowie on Friday before moving to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. The Orioles have a bit of a roster crunch at the moment, so they could keep him on his rehab stint for close to the maximum of 20 days.
    Thursday, 2:18 pm
  • Asche logs three hits in a losing effort
    Cody Asche went 3-for-3 with a walk and a double as the Phillies dropped Wednesday's game to the Mets.

    Advice: Asche, quietly, has started the season on a torrid pace. Following Tuesday's effort, he's hitting a cool .500 (12-for-24). That being said, 11 of those hits are singles. The pace, of course, isn't sustainable as Asche hit .252 and slugged .390 last season -- both are more indicative of his skill level.

  • McGehee (knee) available as pinch hitter
    Casey McGehee (knee) is available as to pinch hit Wednesday.

    Advice: McGehee has been out of the lineup since Sunday, but he appears close to returning. The third baseman was doing pregame drills and told reporters he could start as soon as Thursday. It's good news considering the bone bruise in his left knee could have been much worse.
    Wednesday, 4:51 pm
  • McGehee (knee) sitting out again Wednesday
    Casey McGehee (knee) is out of the Giants' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Matt Duffy will start at third base and bat second against the Rockies. Joe Panik has been bumped all the way down to eighth. McGehee suffered a bone bruise in his left knee Saturday in San Diego, but he's been able to do pregame activities over the past couple of days and he should be close to returning to action.
    Wednesday, 2:13 pm
  • Olt (wrist) out of Cubs' lineup on Wednesday
    Mike Olt (wrist) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Wednesday against the Reds.

    Advice: Olt was able to enter Tuesday's game as a late sub, but he is still apparently battling some lingering discomfort in his right wrist. Jonathan Herrera is starting at third base and batting ninth.

  • Lonnie Chisenhall drives in a pair
    Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Chisenhall's two-run double in the fourth inning proved to plate the winning RBI for the Tribe. He also added a single in the game. The two-hit contest was Chisenhall's first of the season, as he's batting just .227/.292/.273 in the early going.

  • Mike Olt pinch-hits in Tuesday's game
    Mike Olt (wrist) appeared as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Olt flew out as a pinch-hitter in the eighth, stayed in the game for defense and then struck out to end the game in the ninth. He hadn't played since Saturday after being hit in the wrist by a pitch, but he'll be fine.

  • McGehee (knee) swings, throws Tuesday
    Casey McGehee (knee) did some swinging and throwing on Tuesday.

    Advice: McGehee, who is dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee, noted that he's feeling much better. He has not, however, been told by the trainers when he might be cleared to return to the lineup. McGehee is missing his third straight game on Tuesday.
    Tuesday, 4:33 pm
  • Juan Uribe returns to Dodgers' lineup
    Juan Uribe (hamstring) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Uribe missed the last couple games after tweaking his left hamstring Saturday, but he's obviously feeling well enough to give it a go now. The third baseman sports a .231/.286/.231 batting line in the early going.

  • Olt (wrist) out of Cubs' lineup again Tuesday
    Mike Olt (wrist) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Tuesday against the Reds.

    Advice: Jonathan Herrera is playing third base and batting ninth. Olt was able to go through a pregame workout Tuesday at Wrigley Field but he still has some discomfort in his right wrist, which was struck by a pitch on Saturday night in Colorado.

  • Paredes (back) plays seven innings at EST
    Jimmy Paredes (back) played seven innings at extended spring training on Tuesday.

    Advice: Paredes will play in another extended spring game Wednesday. He should be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment by the end of this week and figures to be an option for the Orioles' active roster late next week. He was placed on the disabled list before Opening Day with a lower back strain.
    Tuesday, 1:28 pm
  • Chisenhall not in Tuesday's lineup
    Lonnie Chisenhall is not in Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

    Advice: He's taking a seat against left-hander Jose Quintana. Mike Aviles will start at third base and bat second.

  • Escobar batting leadoff for Nats on Tuesday
    Yunel Escobar will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Rookie outfielder Michael Taylor has been handling leadoff duties, but he has struggled to make contact, so he has been bumped down to ninth in the order. Jayson Werth will hit second Tuesday against Justin Masterson while Clint Robinson will serve as the designated hitter.

  • Turner (finger) flies out as pinch-hitter
    Justin Turner (finger) flew out as a pinch-hitter in Monday's game against the Mariners.

    Advice: Turner left Saturday's game after being spike on the left hand and having some stiffness in index finger, but he's obviously feeling better now. He should be good to go moving forward.

  • Lamb reaches base three times in a win
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a stolen base, and two runs scored as the Diamondbacks topped the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: Lamb has done nothing but hit to start the season, now carrying a .400 average in 15 at-bats. He has split time at third base with Aaron Hill, sitting against left-handed pitching. That will likely be the case until the D'Backs are able to find a trade partner for Hill.
    Monday, 10:42 pm
  • Freese homers, leads Angels past Rangers
    David Freese walked and hit a two-run home run in five plate appearances as the Angels topped the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Freese clubbed a two-run home run off of Ross Detwiler in the fifth inning to break a 3-3 tie. The third baseman has the power stroke early, now sitting on three home runs despite a .222 average. Freese hit only 10 round-trippers last season.
    Monday, 8:44 pm
  • Mike Olt (wrist) scratched from lineup
    Mike Olt (wrist) was scratched from Monday's lineup.

    Advice: It sounds like Olt's right wrist was still a bit sore in pre-game workouts, so the Cubs will give him another day. Jonathan Herrera has taken his spot at third base.

    Mike Olt (wrist) is back in the Cubs' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Olt didn't start Sunday after being hit by a pitch in the wrist Saturday, although he was able to pinch-hit. He has just two hits in his first 13 at-bats this season, although one of them was a homer.

  • Maikel Franco flexes muscles in 16-inning win
    Phillies prospect Maikel Franco went 3-for-7 with a pair of doubles Sunday in a win over Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: The game went 16 innings, which would explain Franco's high at-bat total. The 22-year-old had just two hits in his first three games prior to Sunday's win. Franco has a chance to be a fixture in Philadelphia, though with Ryan Howard and Cody Asche occupying the two corner infield spots, that opportunity may not come until later this year.

  • Marlins place Don Kelly (finger) on DL
    Marlins placed 1B Don Kelly on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right ring finger.

    Advice: In a painful quirk of the universe, both Kelly and catcher Jeff Mathis fractured right ring fingers on Sunday against the Rays. No timetable has been set for either player's return at this point.

    Casey McGehee has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his left knee.

    Advice: It's the best-case scenario, as the feeling had been that he likely suffered a strain. McGehee, who revealed that he actually first hurt the knee on Opening Day, has been given a cortisone shot and hopes to return after a few days of rest and rehab. Matt Duffy is handling third base for the Giants on Sunday.

  • Charlie Culberson goes on 60-day DL
    Rockies recalled INF Charlie Culberson from Triple-A Albuquerque; placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a bulging disk in his back.

    Juan Uribe said he's fine to play after testing out his left hamstring prior to Sunday's game.

    Juan Uribe (hamstring) is absent from the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Uribe tweaked his left hamstring during Saturday's game. It doesn't appear at this point to be an injury that will force him to the disabled list, but he figures to miss a few games. Alex Guerrero is handling third base. Carl Crawford is also sitting out Sunday, with Andre Ethier covering left field.

  • Jimmy Paredes (back) ready for games
    Jimmy Paredes (back) will play in an extended spring training game on Monday.

    Advice: It will be his first game action since he suffered a lower back strain. Paredes will be cleared to begin a rehab assignment if things go well Monday, so it sounds like he could be activated relatively soon.
    Sunday, 6:31 am
  • Yangervis Solarte reaches four times
    Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-4 with a walk and an RBI against the Giants on Saturday.

    Advice: Solarte is off to a 5-for-11 start in his part-time role in the San Diego infield. If he keeps hitting, it might make sense for the Padres to play him over Will Middlebrooks against right-handers. Still, it seems as though they'd prefer Middlebrooks keep the job at third base. Middlebrooks also had three hits tonight and is 6-for-24 with a homer in the early going. Of course, he's fanned eight times, while Solarte has struck out just once.
    Saturday, 11:42 pm
  • X-rays turn up negative on Olt's right wrist
    X-rays taken Saturday on Mike Olt's right wrist showed no fracture of any kind.

    Advice: Olt has some swelling in the wrist and will probably sit out of Sunday's series finale in Colorado, but he should be fine by early next week. Arismendy Alcantara took over at third base on Saturday night and could draw the start there on Sunday afternoon. Kris Bryant is due to arrive in the majors on April 17.

  • Gonzalez's homer is lone bright spot in loss
    Marwin Gonzalez hit a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: The utility infielder got his first home run of the season out of the way early, going deep off Yovani Gallardo in the third inning. He finished the game 2-for-4. In 285 at-bats last season, Gonzalez hit .277/.327/.400 with six homers and 23 RBI. He's not worth consideration in fantasy leagues, but as a real-life player, he provides the Astros position flexibility and a nice little bench bat.

  • Olt pulled from game after HBP on right wrist
    Mike Olt was pulled from Saturday's game after taking a pitch off his right wrist.

    Advice: Olt looked to be in a good deal of pain and will likely be sent for X-rays. He had homered earlier in the game. Arismendy Alcantara was shifted from second base to third base and Jonathan Herrera entered to handle the keystone. Kris Bryant could take over third base for good next Friday.

    Juan Uribe is day-to-day with hamstring tightness.

    Advice: Uribe grabbed at his left hamstring after ranging to make a play at third base in the bottom of the third inning. He had entered the game just moments earlier after Justin Turner got spiked in the hand on a hard slide into third base. It's been a rough night at Chase Field for the Dodgers.

  • McGehee departs game with left knee strain
    Casey McGehee has been diagnosed with a left knee strain.

    Advice: McGehee suffered the injury Saturday while breaking out of the batter's box on a flyout to center field in the top of the first inning. It sounds like he may need a trip to the 15-day disabled list, though a full reevaluation of the injury is coming Sunday morning. Joaquin Arias took over at third base on Saturday in San Diego.

  • McGehee exits game with an apparent injury
    Casey McGehee was lifted from Saturday's game against the Padres with an apparent injury.

    Advice: McGehee doubled over in pain after a flyout to center field in the top of the first inning. It was hard to tell what happened, though there should be some sort of diagnosis from the Giants within the hour. Joaquin Arias entered the game to play third base.

    Jake Lamb is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Friday.

    Friday, 1:30 pm
  • McGehee hits like Big Panda in win for SF
    Casey McGehee hit a two-run home run in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: McGehee finished the game 2-for-5, doubling along with the two-run shot. He smacked the ninth-inning dinger off Diamondbacks' reliever Evan Marshall. McGehee has the joyful task of taking over the hot corner in San Francisco from free agent renegade Pablo Sandoval. Last season with the Marlins, the 32-year-old McGehee slashed .287/.355/.357. While the veteran doesn't offer much in terms of speed or power, he did drive in 76 runs for Miami and should post respectable RBI numbers in his new home by the bay.
    Wednesday, 10:09 pm
  • Jake Lamb plates four more, up to seven RBI
    Jake Lamb went 1-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run as the Diamondbacks edged out the Giants for a win on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Lamb knocked in a run with a groundout in the second inning, then hit a go-ahead three-run bomb in the bottom of the fifth which put the D'Backs up 7-4 at the time. Lamb had three RBI on Opening Day, so he now has a total of seven RBI through his first two games. The 24-year-old carries legitimate high-level fantasy potential this season after batting .327/.407/.566 last summer between Double-A and Triple-A. Yasmany Tomas doesn't seem to be a threat to Lamb at third base.
    Tuesday, 9:57 pm
  • Freese's homer the difference in Angels' win
    David Freese's two-run home run was the only offense in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over the Mariners.

    Advice: Freese took James Paxton yard in the fourth inning to break a scoreless tie and neither team scored afterwards. After hitting 20 homers in 2012 with the Cardinals, he hit only nine and 10 in the most recent two seasons. Freese turns 32 at the end of April, but a power resurgence isn't out of the question.
