  • Gyorko starting at first base Monday
    Jedd Gyorko will start at first base Monday versus the Royals.

    Advice: Gyorko will get the call with left-hander Danny Duffy on the hill for Kansas City. Matt Holliday will serve as the designated hitter while Brandon Moss gets a start in left field. Gyorko is batting eighth Monday. Rotoworld.com 46 minutes ago

  • Wong not in Monday's lineup
    Kolten Wong is not in Monday's lineup versus the Royals.

    Advice: Not surprisingly, he's sitting against left-hander Danny Duffy. Tommy Pham will start in center field and bat ninth. Rotoworld.com 48 minutes ago

  • Wheeler (elbow) resumed throwing Monday
    Zack Wheeler (elbow) felt fine after playing catch Monday.

    Advice: It was his first time throwing since he was shut down with discomfort in the elbow last week. Wheeler received a cortisone injection to address nerve irritation and will now try to ramp things up again. The Mets were originally aiming for a return around the All-Star break, but obviously his timetable has been pushed back a bit now. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago

  • Turner exits game with hamstring cramp
    Justin Turner was removed from Monday's game against the Pirates due to a hamstring cramp.

    Advice: His exit was precautionary, so it doesn't sound like a major concern. Consider him day-to-day for now. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:35 pm

  • Ellis drives in go-ahead run vs. Pirates
    A.J. Ellis hit a go-ahead infield single in the Dodgers’ 5-4 win over the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: You don’t see "A.J. Ellis infield single" very often, but he hit a ball deep in the hole at shortstop and Jordy Mercer had a tough time getting a hold on it for the throw to first base. The single put a bow on a four-run fifth inning for the Dodgers, which stood up as the difference in the ballgame. Ellis went 1-for-3 with a walk on the afternoon and is hitting .210/.310/.280 over 38 games this season. He’s not fantasy relevant. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:32 pm
  • Turner exits game with possible injury
    Justin Turner exited Monday's game against the Pirates in the ninth inning with a possible injury.

    Advice: Turner appeared to have some cramping in his leg before exiting. The Dodgers should provide an update after the game. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:07 pm

  • Yanks outright Davis to Triple-A
    Yankees sent 1B Ike Davis outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Davis passed through waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. He has expressed a willingness to stick around as depth in the minors, but it's unclear if he's made an official decision. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:03 pm

  • Workman could be close to rehab assignment
    Brandon Workman (elbow) threw a bullpen session Monday at Tropicana Field.

    Advice: It was overseen by manager John Farrell as well as pitching coach Carl Lewis. Now 12 months removed from Tommy John surgery, it appears Workman is close to beginning a rehab assignment. He could be back in the Boston bullpen later this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:03 pm

  • Ryan Webb designated for assignment
    Rays designated RHP Ryan Webb for assignment.

    Advice: Webb gave up five hits and four runs in only one inning of work Saturday in his return from the disabled list. The 30-year-old will likely head to Triple-A Durham if he clears waivers. Danny Farquhar was called up to take Webb's spot on the active roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:45 pm

  • Braves designate Alexi Ogando for assignment
    Braves designated RHP Alexi Ogando for assignment.

    Advice: Ogando got off to a decent start this year but unraveled in June with a 6.52 ERA in 12 appearances. The Braves promoted Mauricio Cabrera from Double-A Mississippi in the corresponding roster move. Ogando will likely report to Triple-A Gwinnett if he clears waivers. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:17 pm

  • Guthrie joins Marlins on minor league deal
    Marlins signed RHP Jeremy Guthrie to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The deal is pending a physical. He'll start out at Triple-A New Orleans and try to work his way up from there. Guthrie was in the Padres' system earlier this year but exercised his opt-out clause when he didn't get a call-up. The 37-year-old recorded a lousy 5.95 ERA in 30 outings (24 starts) for the Royals last season. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:21 am

  • William Cuevas headed back to Pawtucket
    Red Sox optioned RHP William Cuevas to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: He was optioned to make room for infielder Mike Miller. Cuevas allowed two hits and four walks over 2 2/3 scoreless innings against Texas this weekend. He'll probably make his way back to Boston later this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:03 am

  • RHP Rafael Martin called up from Syracuse
    Nationals recalled RHP Rafael Martin from Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Martin has had an uneventful year for Syracuse, contributing a lackluster 4.29 ERA over 29 relief appearances. With the Nationals expected to call up a starter for Tuesday's game against the Mets, Martin could be headed back to Syracuse after Monday's contest. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:50 am
  • Aaron Blair to stay in minors for a while
    Aaron Blair is due for an extended stay in the minor leagues.

    Advice: Atlanta shipped Blair to the minors last month so he could work on his mechanics but injuries forced him back into the starting rotation after only one outing. After another tough stint in the major leagues, the Braves intend to let Blair work through his issues in Triple-A. "He’s a big part of what we’ve got going forward," said interim manager Brian Snitker. "We're trying to help and do the right thing for [him] right now, what’s best for Aaron Blair." The 24-year-old has struggled to a 7.99 ERA over 11 winless outings for the Braves this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:57 am

  • Ross Stripling to throw for OKC on Tuesday
    Ross Stripling will make an appearance for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll pitch in relief of Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is making his fourth rehab start. Stripling has spent the past month at the team's spring training facility in Arizona in an effort to limit his innings. This is Stripling's first full season since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2014. He should be back with the Dodgers at some point this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:22 am

  • Corey Dickerson nursing sore left thumb
    Corey Dickerson (thumb) missed Sunday's game with a sore left thumb.

    Advice: Dickerson won't be in the lineup Monday against Boston but he's hoping to return on Tuesday. The 27-year-old has struggled in his first year away from Coors Field, hitting just .209 with 13 HR and 34 RBI. Evan Longoria filled in as the DH Sunday against Baltimore. The Rays have sunk to the bottom of the AL East by losing 11 straight. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:58 am

  • Justin Turner stays hot in loss to Pirates
    Justin Turner continued his hot-hitting ways in Sunday's loss to the Pirates, going 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI.

    Advice: Turner accounted for all of the Dodgers offense in this one, smacking a two-run homer off of Chad Kuhl in the third inning and adding on an RBI double in the fifth. He finished the night 2-for-3 and is now slashing .250/.332/.437 with 11 homers and 37 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:52 pm

  • Zack Wheeler (elbow) to resume throwing Mon.
    Zack Wheeler (elbow) will resume long-tossing on Monday.

    Advice: Wheeler's rehab from Tommy John surgery hit a speed bump due to nerve irritation in his right elbow, but he was recently given a cortisone shot and hopes to get back on track. The right-hander should be ready to begin a rehab assignment soon if he can avoid another setback. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:51 am

  • Ryan Webb (pectoral) activated from 15-day DL
    Rays activated RHP Ryan Webb from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Tyler Sturdevant was optioned to Triple-A Durham in the corresponding move. Webb needed about a month to recover from a strained pectoral muscle. He was only so-so during his four-game rehab stint, recording a 7.36 ERA over four outings for High-A Charlotte and Triple-A Durham. The right-hander will be used in middle relief.

  • Braves option RHP Blair to Triple-A
    Braves optioned RHP Aaron Blair to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Blair gets the boot after being hammered for eight runs over 4 1/3 innings Friday against the Mets. He now owns a 7.99 ERA over 11 starts in the majors. Blair still offers promise for the long-term, but he has some work to do. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:34 am

    Red Sox recalled RHP William Cuevas from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Cuevas made one appearance for the Red Sox back in April and owns a 3.30 ERA and 48/29 K/BB ratio in 73 2/3 innings across 12 start in Triple-A. The 25-year-old will operate in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:39 am

  • Yanks designate Ike Davis for assignment
    Yankees designated 1B Ike Davis for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Mark Teixeira's return from the disabled list. Davis went 3-for-14 (.214) with an RBI during his brief stint with the Yankees. He told reporters that he'll consider staying with the organization if he passes through waivers unclaimed. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:17 am

  • Blair gives up eight runs in loss
    Aaron Blair was hammered for eight runs over 4 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Blair remains winless through his first 11 starts in the majors. He has deserved better on a couple of occasions, but this wasn’t one of them. He allowed seven hits (including a three-run homer to James Loney in the fifth) and three walks in the loss and now stands at 0-5 with a 7.99 ERA. Assuming the Braves stick with him, he’ll get the Indians next week. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:04 pm

  • Dickerson homers in loss to Orioles
    Corey Dickerson homered as part of a 2-for-4 night with two RBI on Friday.

    Advice: His home run in the first inning was his 13th of the year. Dickerson has struggled mightily since being traded from the Rockies to the Rays. He has a very unlucky .225 BABIP so perhaps better days are ahead for the 27-year-old outfielder. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:26 pm

  • Zack Wheeler (elbow) receives cortisone shot
    Zack Wheeler (elbow) received a cortisone injection to treat sensory nerve irritation in his right elbow.

    Advice: Wheeler had been steadily working his way back from Tommy John surgery, but he hit a snag with the elbow earlier this month and the team is understandably playing things cautiously. The Mets do not believe his current nerve irritation is the result of any structural damage within his surgically-repaired elbow. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:09 pm

  • Zack Wheeler backed off his elbow rehab
    Zack Wheeler has been backed off his rehab due to renewed elbow discomfort.

    Advice: He won't throw his scheduled simulated game this week, and this will also further delay a minor league rehab assignment. Wheeler had been aiming to return from Tommy John surgery shortly after the All-Star break. He might now be sidelined through all of July. The right-hander is scheduled to be examined by Mets team doctors on Wednesday in New York. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:10 pm

  • Webb (pectoral) makes third rehab appearance
    Ryan Webb (pectoral) struck out two batters over a scoreless inning Monday in his latest rehab appearance with Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Webb, out since May 26 with a right pectoral strain, has allowed two runs on four hits and one walk in 2 2/3 innings over three appearances in Triple-A. It's not clear what the next step will be, but he's getting close to being activated. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:37 am

  • Justin Turner hits 10th homer
    Justin Turner went 2-for-4 and hit his 10th homer against the Nationals on Monday.

    Advice: Turner has raised his OPS a full hundred points, from .668 to .768, while collecting five homers over the last week. It's hard to imagine he's still unowned in any mixed leagues now. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:13 pm

  • Wong starting in center field Monday
    Kolten Wong will start in center field and bat eighth Monday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Tommy Pham got the start in center field against Rangers left-hander Martin Perez on Sunday, but Wong is back out there with right-hander John Lackey on the hill for Chicago. The 25-year-old swung the bat well during his demotion and could be mixed league relevant again if he keeps it going in his return to the majors. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:33 pm

  • Ryan Webb (pectoral) nearing return
    Ryan Webb (pectoral) is expected to make at least one more rehab appearance before being activated.

    Advice: Webb has made two rehab appearances to this point as he works his way back from a pectoral strain. It seems likely that he'll be activated later this week if all goes well. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 7:15 am

  • Turner fills the scoresheet vs Brewers
    Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, two runs scored, one walk and a stolen base on Saturday.

    Advice: The home run was of the three-run variety and was Turner's ninth of the season. That follows the two longballs he hit the night before. The stolen base was his first. Turner is batting .248 and has 28 runs and 30 RBI in 236 at-bats. Those are not the kind of numbers that will lead your fantasy team to the championship, but he can be useful as a backup or spot starter, especially if he has multi-position eligibility in your format.

  • Blair notches quality start against the Mets
    Aaron Blair turned in a quality start but did not factor into the decision on Saturday in a 4-3 Braves win over the Mets, tossing six innings while allowing three earned runs on five hits, including two home runs.

    Advice: He walked one and whiffed four. Blair allowed solo homers to Wilmer Flores and Yoenis Cespedes but only three other hits. Blair's 7.19 ERA remains horrific after 10 starts but he got it moving in the right direction today. His 5.24 K/9 is way too low and his 5.05 BB/9 is way too high for him to have any sort of success in the major leagues. He will try to improve those ratios when he faces the Mets again on Friday.

  • Wong starting in CF and batting second Sat.
    Kolten Wong is starting in center field and batting second Saturday versus the Rangers.

    Advice: It will be his first start in center at the major league level, and he hadn't played the position in the minors before this past week. Wong could begin to see regular action in center if he handles the position defensively and starts hitting. He slugged four home runs in seven games at Triple-A Memphis. Rotoworld.com Jun 18, 1:19 pm

  • Justin Turner homers twice for Dodgers
    Justin Turner went 3-for-5 with a pair of homers Friday to lead the Dodgers past the Brewers 3-2.

    Advice: Turner drove in all three runs, homering in the first and eighth innings and then singling in Will Venable to end the game in the bottom of the 10th. It seems as though he's putting things together now after a miserable first two months -- he also homered Tuesday and he's hit in five straight -- so he'd be worth a try in any mixed leagues in which he was dropped.

  • Cardinals recall Kolten Wong from Triple-A
    Cardinals recalled 2B/OF Kolten Wong from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Wong didn't even last two weeks at Memphis, as he earned a recall after hitting .429/.529/.929 with four homers in seven games. He was playing center field of late with Memphis and that's the spot where he seems likelier to garner playing time this time around with Randal Grichuk's struggles. Wong was batting just .222/.306/.286 before being sent down but could get back on the mixed league radar if he receives regular playing time and picks it up with the bat.
