  • Davidson stretches hit streak to five games
    White Sox third base prospect Matt Davidson extended his hitting streak to five Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Davidson mashed a solo home run, his second in as many games. He also drew a bases loaded walk. The 24-year-old has driven in at least one run in each of his last four appearances. Davidson is still hitting just .237 for the year including a dismal .219 in 96 May at-bats. He played 31 games for the White Sox in 2013 but hasn't been back to the big leagues since. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Johnson activated from disabled list
    Braves activated 3B Chris Johnson from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He had been slated to return on Thursday, but the Braves moved his arrival up a day following their trade with the Dodgers. Once the deal becomes official, Johnson will share third base with Juan Uribe. He's hitting .279/.347/.372 over 16 contests for Atlanta this season. Rotoworld.com

    Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-2 with a two-run homer and a walk in a loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

  • Juan Uribe/Alberto Callaspo trade done
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that trade a between the Dodgers and Braves involving Juan Uribe and Alberto Callaspo is "done," pending approval by the commissioner’s office.

    Advice: It was reported earlier Tuesday that Callaspo rejected the trade, but now Rosenthal is saying he waived his right to reject any deal prior to June 15. Rosenthal says it would be a six-player trade, and he thinks Trevor Cahill and/or Eric Stults could be one of the players going to the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com

  • Casey McGehee accepts assignment to AAA
    Giants optioned 3B Casey McGehee to Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: McGehee was designated for assignment by the Giants on Sunday and had the option to become a free agent, but he would have been forfeiting what's left of his $4.8 million salary for 2015. He had an option left, so the 32-year-old third baseman will remain on the Giants' 40-man roster. McGehee will try to work his way back to San Francisco with a strong showing at the Triple-A level.

  • Braves could still have interest in Uribe
    Mark Bowman of MLB.com writes that the Braves could still have interest in acquiring Juan Uribe from the Dodgers, even after the Alberto Callaspo deal fell through.

    Advice: Callaspo chose to reject a trade to the Dodgers, as was his right as a player who signed a free agent contract over the winter. However, the Braves clearly like Uribe and there still might be momentum to get a deal done. The 36-year-old has taken on a diminished role with the Dodgers of late. Rotoworld.com

  • Alberto Callaspo rejects trade to Dodgers
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Alberto Callaspo has rejected a trade to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Juan Uribe and others would have been sent to the Braves in the proposed deal. However, Callaspo has the ability to veto a trade until June 15 since he signed with the Braves as a free agent over the winter. He ultimately chose to use that right. Callaspo figures to be designated for assignment when Chris Johnson comes off the DL later this week and he'll be able to sign with any team at the major league minimum once he hits free agency.

  • Uribe/Callaspo trade talks have lost traction
    Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that the potential Juan Uribe/Alberto Callaspo swap between the Dodgers and Braves has "lost traction."

    Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal wrote that the deal on the table had Uribe and a minor leaguer going to the Braves for Callaspo and three minor leaguers, but Bowman now hears that nothing is imminent. It's unclear why talks have hit a snag, but Callaspo has the ability to veto a trade until June 15 since he signed as a free agent over the winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Dodgers, Braves talking Uribe/Callaspo deal
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are talking to the Braves about a deal involving Juan Uribe and Alberto Callaspo.

    Advice: No specifics yet, but Uribe and a minor leaguer would go to the Braves for Callaspo and three minor leaguers. Rosenthal hears from one source that the deal was close to being completed as of Monday night, which explains why Callaspo was a late-scratch from the Braves' lineup. Callaspo doesn't have much value to the Dodgers, but moving Uribe would officially clear the way for Alex Guerrero, Justin Turner, and Scott Van Slyke to take on more pronounced roles. Uribe, 36, is batting just .247/.287/.309 with one home run and six RBI through 87 plate appearances this season and is making $6.5 million. Because Callaspo signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Braves as a free agent over the winter, he has the ability to veto any trade until June 15. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves trying to trade Alberto Callaspo
    Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez revealed after Monday's game that Alberto Callaspo was scratched because the club is in the process of trying to trade him.

    Advice: There had been speculation that he could be designated for assignment, but evidently the Braves might find a taker for him. They'll surely have to eat a good portion of what remains of Callaspo's $3 million salary for this season. The veteran infielder has just three hits in his last 53 at-bats to drop his season average to .206. Rotoworld.com

  • Callaspo to be designated for assignment?
    MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that Alberto Callaspo may be designated for assignment.

    Advice: The Braves didn't give a reason for scratching Callaspo from Monday's lineup, but Bowman is hearing it could be because his time with the club is coming to an end. The veteran infielder has just three hits in his last 53 at-bats to drop his season average to .206. He was signed to a $3 million contract over the offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays option Kawasaki to AAA Buffalo
    Blue Jays optioned INF Munenori Kawasaki to Triple-A Buffalo.

  • Adam Rosales powers rangers past Yankees
    Adam Rosales blasted a two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the Yankees in New York.

    Advice: It was the second straight start that Rosales has made at second base and he made the most of it, going 2-for-3 plus a walk, though he was caught stealing. Though he's hitting just .214/.279/.375 on the season, he could be interesting in AL-only formats if he's indeed seeing the bulk of playing time at second base. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez's 3 hits contribute to Astros' win
    Marwin Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored as the Astros held off the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Jose Altuve wasn't in the lineup Sunday as he was getting a day of rest. Gonzalez took second base in his stead and performed admirably, contributing to a 10-run outburst on the afternoon. He's hitting .263/.271/.421 on the year with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 13 runs scored. Rotoworld.com

  • Casey McGehee designated for assignment
    Giants designated 3B Casey McGehee for assignment.

    Advice: The Giants traded for McGehee over the winter in hopes that he'd pick up some of the offensive slack following the loss to Pablo Sandoval. It would be an understatement to say it didn't work out, as he hit just .200/.254/.282 and is now off the roster. Matt Duffy will be San Francisco's regular third baseman. Rotoworld.com

  • Peterson's walkoff RBI guides Braves over MIL
    Jace Peterson hit a walkoff RBI single Saturday in the Braves' 3-2 extra-innings win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Peterson smacked a leadoff single in the bottom of the first inning but was caught trying to steal second base. His next hit of the game -- five at-bats later -- was a single to left-center field that scored Alberto Callaspo from third base in the bottom of the 11th inning. Peterson, 25, is batting .264/.336/.318 with four steals and 14 runs in 39 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Middlebrooks starting at shortstop Saturday
    Will Middlebrooks will make his first career start at shortstop Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Middlebooks played one inning at shortstop against the Diamondbacks on May 10. With Middlebrooks occupying shortstop, Cory Spangenberg will draw the start at third base. Alexi Amarista, who has started at shortstop for 31 of San Diego's 44 games this season, will get the night off. Rotoworld.com

  • Bloomquist delivers two-run double in victory
    Willie Bloomquist delivered a two-run double on Saturday, leading the Mariners to a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Score one for the batter vs. pitcher DFS crowd, as Bloomquist entered the day 20-for-44 (.455) with seven extra-base hits lifetime against Mark Buehrle. His two-run double in the third inning increased the M's advantage to 3-1 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon, and he's now hitting .184/.205/.211 with three RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Duffy hits second homer
    Matt Duffy hit his second homer as part of a 3-for-5 night against the Rockies on Friday.

    Advice: Duffy has established himself as the Giants' best option at third base, for better or worse. He's not going to be much of an asset offensively, but he's certainly outplayed Casey McGehee to date. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Flaherty has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 12 because of a mild right groin strain. He should be ready to return when first eligible and will likely resume getting regular starts at second base for the Orioles, who will be without Jonathan Schoop (knee) until mid-July. Rotoworld.com

  • Ramirez helps Brewers go back-to-back-to-back
    Aramis Ramirez hit the third of back-to-back-to-back home runs as the Brewers beat the Tigers in Tuesday's match-up.

    Advice: Ryan Braun hit a three-run jack off of Anibal Sanchez and was immediately followed with a solo blast from Adam Lind. Ramirez made it three in a row when he took Sanchez out to deep left field. It's homer number five on the year for the veteran, who has now homered in consecutive games. The power is starting to show itself, but Ramirez is hitting an otherwise mediocre .245/.279/.453 with 14 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Johnson (hand) could be activated Mon.

  • Ramirez homers as Brewers top Tigers
    Aramis Ramirez clubbed a solo home run, finishing 1-for-4 in a winning effort against the Tigers on Monday.

    Advice: Ramirez tied the game at 2-2 with his solo shot off of Kyle Lobstein in the fourth inning. The 36-year-old was hampered by a back injury after he appeared to be heating up to start the month of May. He's batting .245/.280/.431 with four home runs and 13 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Peterson gets on base 3 times with 2 RBI
    Jace Peterson went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a two-run single in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Peterson was once again a factor in the Braves' offense a day after hitting a grand slam. He singled in two runs and later scored as part of the Braves' five-run second inning. He's now batting .284/.350/.349 with one home run and 15 RBI. Rotoworld.com
