  • De La Rosa solid in 5 2/3 IP in no-decision
    Rubby De La Rosa scattered two runs in 5 2/3 innings, but got a no-decision in Tuesday's 10-inning loss versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Both runs scored on a Yasmany Tomas home run in the second inning. De La Rosa allowed six hits and a walk overall while striking out seven. He's put together four terrific starts in a row now but still has a mediocre 4.60 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 94/26 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings. De La Rosa will look to keep it going when he faces the Rockies at home in his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • Frias goes 5 innings in no-decision vs DBacks
    Carlos Frias allowed three runs in five innings, getting a no-decision as the Dodgers needed 10 innings to fend off the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Frias gave up seven hits and walked three while striking out only one batter. Nick Ahmed struck the big blow in the fourth inning with a two-run home run. Things could've gone a lot worse for Frias. The young right-hander now owns a 4.39 ERA with a 1.55 WHIP and a 40/24 K/BB ratio in 69 2/3 innings. He'll have a decent match-up his next time out as he'll face the Phillies at home. Rotoworld.com

  • Hawkins nabs first save since April 7 vs. A's
    LaTroy Hawkins enjoyed a 1-2-3 ninth inning to earn his second save in Tuesday's 2-1 victory against the Athletics.

    Advice: With John Axford back on the 7-day family medical emergency list, Hawkins was called upon to finish out Tuesday's game. He used 14 pitches to get a ground out, a pop-up, and a line out to end the contest. He hadn't saved a game since April 7. Hawkins may not see all of the save chances with Axford out, as Scott Oberg and Tommy Kahnle are candidates as well. Hawkins has a 5.27 ERA and a 14/3 K/BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings this season.

  • Bassitt pitches well in relief of Sonny Gray
    Chris Bassitt, making a spot start, limited the Rockies to one run in five innings, but suffered a tough luck loss on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sonny Gray was scratched due to an illness, so Bassitt was called up from Triple-A Nashville. The right-hander scattered five hits, walked none, and struck out three in the effort. As Gray will presumably be over his illness soon, Bassitt is likely headed back to Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Nova allows two solo homers to take a loss
    Ivan Nova allowed two solo home runs, proving to be his undoing over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: They both came in the sixth inning, back-to-back shots from Albert Pujols and Erick Aybar. Nova struck out David Freese, but then allowed a double to Matt Joyce to end his evening. He gave up eight hits and two walks overall while striking out seven. The right-hander has been solid in two starts since being activated, as he pitched 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball against the Phillies in his previous start. Nova will face the Athletics at home next.

  • Miller homers as Mariners blank the Padres
    Brad Miller launched a two-run home run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mariners shut the Padres out 5-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller took Ian Kennedy out to right-center in the fourth inning for a two-run homer, making it a 4-0 Mariners lead at the time. It's his seventh homer of the season. He looks certain to surpass his career high of 10 set last season. He's also knocked in 22 runs while batting a passable .237/.316/.404. Rotoworld.com

  • Nunez' three-hit night leads Twins past Reds
    Eduardo Nunez finished 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base as the Twins trumped the Reds 8-5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nunez and the Twins racked up 15 hits against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds bullpen. The shortstop had three of them, collecting two singles and a double. He also stole his third base of the season. Nunez' usage has been inexplicable at times -- the light-hitting shortstop has served as the team's designated hitter in 11 games this year -- but he's put up decent numbers through 33 games, hitting .305/.350/.516 with 11 RBI and 13 runs scored. Perhaps he'll begin garnering more of the playing time at short with his hot hitting. Rotoworld.com

  • Suarez blasts second home run against Twins
    Eugenio Suarez hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Suarez hit a solo shot off Phil Hughes in the third inning to get the Reds on the board. The homer was his second in 17 games this season. Suarez took over for Zack Cozart at shortstop and has held his own, hitting .328/.369/.475. Despite that, his offensive upside is limited and he can be ignored in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Flowers hits game-winning homer in extras
    Tyler Flowers hit a solo home run in the 11th inning to lead the White Sox to a 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flowers took reliever Miguel Socolovich deep to break a 1-1 tie. The catcher finished 2-for-5 in the game. The homer was his sixth of the season and his second in as many games. Flowers is hitting .217/.268/.369 while splitting time behind the dish for the Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • Jungmann notches quality start as Brewers win
    Taylor Jungmann notched a quality start in Tuesday's win versus the Phillies, allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings.

    Advice: Two runs scored on ground outs in the second and third innings. Carlos Ruiz slugged a solo home run off of him in the sixth. Jungmann gave up five hits and a pair of walks while striking out four on the evening. The right-hander has been solid in five starts thus far, sporting a 2.79 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and a 23/8 K/BB ratio over 29 innings. Jungmann will try to keep it going when he starts against the Reds on the road next. Rotoworld.com

  • Ramirez has 3 RBI to lead Brewers past Phils
    Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's win against the Phillies.

    Advice: Ramirez staked the Brewers to an early 2-0 lead with a two-run single in the first inning. He tacked on an important run with an RBI single in the eighth, which tied the game at 3-3 at the time. He's had a miserable 2015 season but has still drawn some trade interest. Ramirez is hitting .222/.261/.413 with nine home runs and 33 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Bour hits seventh homer in win over Giants
    Justin Bour hit his seventh home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: The solo homer was his only hit in four at-bats on the night. He's now got seven homers in 50 games with the Marlins. The 27-year-old is hitting .254/.331/.454 overall. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockies to go with committee at closer
    The Rockies are expected to go with a committee at closer while John Axford is on the family medical emergency list.

    Advice: Nick Groke of the Denver Post lists LaTroy Hawkins, Scott Oberg and Tommy Kahnle as ninth-inning options for manager Walt Weiss. Hawkins is probably the favorite out of the gate, as he has closer experience and has pitched very well since returning from the disabled list, allowing just one run with a 7/1 K/BB ratio over 6 2/3 innings.

  • Schoop (knee) likely to remain in minors
    Jonathan Schoop (knee) is likely to remain in the minor leagues for the remainder of this week.

    Advice: There was talk that the Orioles might activate him Monday, but Schoop needs a little more work as he makes his way back from a PCL tear in his left knee. He hasn't appeared in a major league game since April 17. Rotoworld.com

  • A's recall RHP Bassitt from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled RHP Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The A's have yet to announce a corresponding roster move. Bassitt will start against the Rockies on Tuesday in place of Sonny Gray, who was scratched due to illness. The 26-year-old has posted a 3.71 ERA and 64/18 K/BB ratio over 63 innings this season in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

    Cardinals transferred RHP Jordan Walden from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Marcus Hatley on the 40-man roster. Walden has been out for two months with a right shoulder strain and hopes to return around the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com

  • Medlen (elbow) makes latest rehab start
    Kris Medlen (elbow) allowed two runs over 3 2/3 innings Monday in a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: Medlen, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, gave up four hits (including two home runs) while walking none and striking out none. It was his first start in Triple-A after posting a 5.63 ERA and 7/2 K/BB ratio in eight innings over two outings with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He's on track to join the Royals by mid-July, though it's unclear how he'll be used. Rotoworld.com

  • Suarez knocks in 3 runs, steals two bases
    Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI, and two stolen bases as the Reds held on to beat the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: Suarez had logged four straight multi-hit games between June 21-25 and did it again on Monday. He doubled in two runs in the third inning and singled in a run in the sixth in a slugfest. Suarez is filling in for the injured Zack Cozart and has done well thus far, batting .316/.361/.421 with nine RBI and three stolen bases in 62 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Jonathan Schoop takes BP Monday in Baltimore
    Jonathan Schoop (knee) will take batting practice with the Orioles on Monday.

  • Decision coming on Jonathan Schoop (knee)
    The Orioles are expected to make a decision on Jonathan Schoop (knee) on Monday.

    Advice: Schoop will either be activated from the disabled list or continue his rehab with Triple-A Norfolk. He's been rehabbing at Double-A Bowie but the Baysox are going on the road and the Orioles would prefer to have Schoop closer to Baltimore. Schoop's 20-day rehab window expires on July 8. The 23-year-old hasn't appeared in the major leagues since April 17. Rotoworld.com

  • Jonathan Schoop (knee) nearing activation
    Jonathan Schoop (knee) could be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: That's only if Adam Jones (shoulder) has to go on the DL. If Jones doesn't, Schoop is likely to return Monday. Working his way back from a PCL tear in his left knee, Schoop is batting .273/.304/.773 over six rehab games and will play in a seventh game Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • De La Rosa impressive in no-decision
    Rubby De La Rosa spun seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

    Advice: De La Rosa left with the lead, but the Diamondbacks' bullpen quickly coughed it up in the eighth inning. Still, it was a very impressive outing at a tough place to pitch. De La Rosa gave up just five hits and one walk while striking out five, with the only damage coming on a solo homer from Nolan Arenado in the sixth. The 26-year-old has allowed just two earned runs in 22 innings over his last three starts, improving his ERA from 5.84 to 4.69 in the process. He'll try to keep it going against the Dodgers next week at home. Rotoworld.com

  • Frias spins 5 shutout frames to beat the Cubs
    Carlos Frias hurled five innings of shutout ball to earn a win versus the Cubs on Thursday.

    Advice: Frias, on 82 pitches, worked around seven hits and three walks with five strikeouts to keep the Cubs off the board. The 25-year-old right-hander has been more miss than hit lately for fantasy purposes and should continue to be passed over despite Thursday's results. He has a 4.31 ERA, a 1.52 WHIP, and a 39/21 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings. Frias will face the Diamondbacks in Arizona next. Rotoworld.com

  • Jungmann tosses 5 scoreless innings vs. Mets
    Taylor Jungmann shut the Mets out over five innings but took a no-decision as the Brewers ultimately lost on Thursday.

    Advice: Jungmann was inefficient, needing 91 innings to get through five innings, but worked around four hits, a pair of walks, and a hit batsman with five strikeouts. The 25-year-old has been solid in four starts thus far, giving up only seven runs in 23 innings (2.74 ERA) with a 1.22 WHIP and a 19/6 K/BB ratio. Jungmann has what appears to be a favorable match-up coming up, as he'll take on the Phillies in a road start next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Aramis Ramirez out of lineup Thursday

  • Nova shuts down Phillies in return from TJS
    Ivan Nova delivered 6 2/3 shutout innings Wednesday in the Yankees' 10-2 pounding of the Phillies.

    Advice: It was Nova's first major league start since undergoing Tommy John surgery last April and he looked as sharp as anyone could have hoped for, yielding only three hits and two walks while pitching into the seventh inning. Now we'll see how he handles a real offense next week in Anaheim. Expectations should be tempered as Nova works back to full strength, though he could make for a decent fantasy streamer in the right matchups. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:30 pm
  • Ivan Nova (elbow) returns from disabled list
    Yankees activated RHP Ivan Nova from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Nova will make his season debut on Wednesday versus the Phillies after successfully completing his rehab from Tommy John surgery. It's a nice first matchup for the right-hander, but fantasy owners might want to him him a start or two before sticking him into their lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:49 am
  • Nova (elbow) to make season debut Wednesday
    Ivan Nova (elbow) will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Nova was knocked around in his final rehab start, but he's feeling healthy and showing good velocity so the Yankees are ready to stick him back into their rotation. The club will go with a six-man rotation for at least one turn, so Nathan Eovaldi and Adam Warren are both safe for now. Fantasy owners should probably give Nova at least a start or two before putting him back into their lineups. Rotoworld.com

  • Frias allows six runs over 5 1/3 IP vs SF
    Carlos Frias couldn't find traction in a loss to the Giants on Saturday, allowing six runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Four of the six runs against Frias scored via a pair of two-run homers by Justin Maxwell and Brandon Belt in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively. Frias struck out just two while walking one on the way to dropping his record to 4-5. With a 4.68 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 34/18 K/BB ratio in 59 2/3 innings, there's not a ton to recommend here for fantasy purposes, and given the Dodgers' free-spending ways, it's not a given that the team will stand pat with the rotation as the trade deadline nears. Frias will try to rebound from this poor outing when he takes to the road to face the Cubs next Thursday afternoon. Rotoworld.com

  • De La Rosa goes seven in win over Padres
    Rubby De La Rosa yielded two runs (one earned) over seven-plus innings Friday in a 4-2 win over the Padres.

    Advice: De La Rosa had a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning and the second run scored after Daniel Hudson replaced him following back-to-back errors. He fanned six and walked three for his sixth win of the season. After back-to-back awful starts, De La Rosa has now turned in consecutive strong effort to bring his ERA down to 4.96 for the year. He faces a challenging matchup next time out against the Rockies on the road. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 20, 11:59 am
  • Aramis Ramirez not in Brewers starting lineup
    Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a homer in Friday's victory, but he'll get a day to rest on Saturday afternoon against Chad Bettis. Hernan Perez will start in his place at the hot corner and bat seventh for the Brewers. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 20, 9:15 am
  • Jungmann gives up four runs in win
    Taylor Jungmann allowed four runs over six innings in a 9-5 win over the Rockies on Friday.

    Advice: Jungmann allowed eight hits and a walk while striking out four. Fortunately for him, his offense did more damage against Jorge De La Rosa. Coors Field is not an easy assignment for a pitcher, let alone one who was making just his third major league start, so the Brewers couldn't have asked for much more under the circumstances. The win snapped the team's six-game losing streak. Jungmann will bring a 3.50 ERA into a start against the Mets next week at home. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 19, 9:51 pm
  • Ramirez homers in win over Rockies
    Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Ramirez also singled and doubled. The 36-year-old isn't the same player he once was, with a .220/.256/.405 batting line on the year, but he still has some pop in his bat and could come in handy for a contender. Rotoworld.com
