  • Tony Cruz recalled from Triple-A
    Royals recalled C Tony Cruz from Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: He's not replacing Salvador Perez (quad) on the roster, which is a good sign for the All-Star. Cruz will serve as a third catcher with Perez likely unavailable for a bit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:33 am

  • Ryan Hanigan available off bench on Saturday
    Ryan Hanigan (neck, illness) is available off of the bench on Saturday.

    Advice: The veteran backstop was unavailable on Friday due to a neck issue and an illness that he has been battling. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:34 am
  • Blake Swihart not in Red Sox lineup Saturday
    Blake Swihart is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Swihart has been a fixture in left field since his recall from Triple-A, but he'll get a breather on Saturday. Chris Young will start in his place and bat eighth. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:20 am
  • Derek Norris hits fifth homer in victory
    Derek Norris went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI and two walks against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Advice: The Padres need more from Norris, not just so that they can win some games, but also because they want him to drive up his trade value in advance of the deadline. He's hit .224 with four homers in May after finishing April with a .156 average and one homer. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:25 pm
  • Christian Vazquez plates two in loss to Jays
    Christian Vazquez went 1-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday night in Toronto.

    Advice: Vazquez came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning which cut the Jays lead to 5-4. He has had a rough go of it at the plate this season, slashing a mere .223/.263/.330 with one homer and eight RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:10 pm
  • Ross slugs 100th home run of career
    David Ross slugged the 100th home run of his career Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: It was a three-run blast during a four-run fourth inning against Adam Morgan. Ross intends to retire after the season and he’s going out strong. The 39-year-old is batting .254 with four home runs and an .828 OPS. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:06 pm
  • Chirinos (forearm) ready for rehab assignment
    Robinson Chirinos (forearm) is ready to begin a rehab assignment.

    Advice: It's unclear where or when exactly it will begin, but the good news is Chirinos is game-ready. He's hoping to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on June 9. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:37 pm

  • Josh Phegley activated from disabled list
    Athletics activated C Josh Phegley from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Phegley missed a couple weeks with right knee inflammation, but he's ready to go. He'll go back to starting against lefties. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:11 pm
  • Flowers hits two-run homer in loss to Brewers
    Tyler Flowers hit a two-run home run in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

    Advice: Flowers, batting cleanup, got the Braves on the board early with the two-run jack off Brewers starter Wily Peralta. The backstop has split time with A.J. Pierzynski this season but has been representative when in the lineup, hitting .269/.360/.372 with two homers and 10 RBI in 25 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:13 pm
  • Garneau, Story, CarGo homer in win over Sox
    Dustin Garneau hit one of three, two-run home runs on the night as the Rockies thumped the Red Sox 8-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: Garneau's two-run dinger in the fifth inning followed two-run shots by Carlos Gonzalez, who hit his in the fourth, and Trevor Story, whose homer came two batters before Garneau's. The catcher also doubled and scored in the game. The home run was the first of the season for the 28-year-old, and his .270/.317/.459 line while filling in for the injured Nick Hundley could leave the Rockies' front office with a tough decision when Hundley returns. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:43 pm
  • Hanigan (illness, neck) not starting Thursday
    Ryan Hanigan (illness, neck) is not in the Red Sox's lineup Thursday against the Rockies.

    Advice: He left Wednesday's game with an illness and is also battling neck stiffness. Christian Vazquez will draw another start behind the plate. Blake Swihart, who is starting in left field, will fill in if Vazquez leaves early. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:15 pm
  • Angels sign Erik Kratz to minors contract
    Angels signed C Erik Kratz to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Kratz was designated for assignment by the Astros on May 16 and subsequently released. The veteran catcher is a .210/.261/.381 career hitter at the big league level. He will report to Triple-A Salt Lake. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:12 pm

  • Yasmani Grandal hits fourth homer
    Yasmani Grandal hit his fourth homer Wednesday against the Reds.

    Advice: Grandal had been in a 2-for-33 slump while dealing with his frequent off days and a recent minor ankle injury. He's been awfully slump-prone throughout his career, partly due to playing through physical issues, but he can also look like an elite catcher at times. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:20 pm
  • Blake Swihart triples twice
    Blake Swihart tripled twice and knocked in two runs versus the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Advice: It doesn't look like Brock Holt will return within the next 7-10 days, giving Swihart some more time to establish himself as a long-term left field option for Boston. The team would probably prefer to return him to Triple-A when Holt returns, which would allow him to continue to get his reps in behind the plate, but if he hits, he'll make it a tough decision. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:57 pm
  • Ryan Hanigan exits with illness vs Rockies
    Ryan Hanigan was forced out of Wednesday's game against the Rockies due to an illness.

    Advice: Hanigan collected a single in his first at-bat, but was pulled for a pinch-hitting Christian Vasquez in the bottom of the fourth. The Red Sox forwarded that he is dealing with a bit of a bug. Consider him day-to-day. Hanigan is also fighting through a left hand contusion suffered over the weekend. Tough times for the veteran backstop. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:50 pm
  • Yankees prospect Sanchez fractures thumb
    Yankees catching prospect Gary Sanchez has a non-displaced fracture in his right thumb.

    Advice: Sanchez will hit the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre disabled list and be reevaluated via X-rays in two weeks. The 23-year-old backstop initially suffered the injury after taking a foul-tip to the thumb on Tuesday. The major league off-shoot of this is that the Yankees have little ammunition at the catcher position should Brian McCann or Austin Romine suffer any sort of injury. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:07 pm

  • Travis d'Arnaud clear for baseball activities
    Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) has reported to the Mets' spring training facilities in Florida.

    Advice: And the plan calls for d'Arnaud to resume full baseball activities on Thursday, per assistant general manager John Ricco. The 27-year-old catcher has been on the disabled list since April 26 with a strained right rotator cuff and remains without an exact timetable for activation. If he can avoid setbacks, it's possible we'll see him return in late June. But that's really just a guess. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:00 am

  • Grandal (ankle) back in Dodgers' lineup Tues.
    Yasmani Grandal (ankle) is back in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Reds.

    Advice: Grandal missed a few games after fouling a ball off his right ankle on Saturday. He's starting at catcher and batting eighth Tuesday night against Reds righty Daniel Wright. It will be Winkler's major league debut. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:34 pm
  • Chirinos (forearm) could be ready on June 9?
    Robinson Chirinos (forearm) could be ready for activation from the 60-day disabled list when first eligible on June 9.

    Advice: That comes from beat writer Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Chirinos was given a recovery timetable of 10-12 weeks when he underwent surgery for a broken right ulna on April 11. He'd be coming in two weeks ahead of that. It's a promising injury update for a Rangers team that needs promising injury updates. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:10 pm

  • Astros release catcher Erik Kratz
    Astros released C Erik Kratz.

    Advice: Kratz was designated for assignment by the Astros on May 16 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The veteran catcher owns a .210/.261/.381 career batting line in MLB. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:38 pm

  • D'Arnaud (shoulder) has resumed throwing
    Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) has resumed throwing in California.

    Advice: D'Arnaud was shut down earlier this month after he felt renewed discomfort in his rotator cuff, but he has made progress since receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection. The plan calls for him to travel to Port St. Lucie, Florida later this week to ramp up baseball activities, but the best-case scenario is that he's likely a few weeks away from joining the Mets.

  • Grandal (ankle) served as pinch-hitter
    Yasmani Grandal (ankle) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's marathon win over the Padres.

    Advice: Grandal was held out of the Dodgers' starting lineup after fouling a ball off his right ankle on Saturday. X-rays came back negative. He's considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:14 am
  • Yasmani Grandal (ankle) not in lineup Sunday
    Yasmani Grandal (ankle) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Grandal departed Saturday's game after fouling a ball off his right ankle. X-rays came back clean and he's available to pinch-hit. A.J. Ellis is catching Sunday. The Dodgers also have Howie Kendrick at third base for Justin Turner and Trayce Thompson in left field. Rotoworld.com May 22, 11:12 am
  • X-rays on Yasmani Grandal's foot are negative
    X-rays on Yasmani Grandal's right foot came back negative.

    Advice: Grandal had to leave Saturday's loss to the Padres after fouling a ball off the foot, but thankfully exams came back clean. "It looks worse than it is," said Grandal. Even with X-rays coming back negative, it wouldn't be a surprise if Grandal sits for a day or two if he's sore. Rotoworld.com May 22, 5:10 am
  • Ryan Hanigan leaves with left hand contusion
    Ryan Hanigan left Saturday's game against the Indians with a left hand contusion.

    Advice: Trevor Bauer drilled him with a pitch in the sixth inning. Christian Vasquez pinch-hit for Hanigan in the seventh and replaced him behind the plate. Hanigan could be headed for X-rays. Rotoworld.com May 21, 4:42 pm
  • Phegley to bein rehab assignment Saturday
    Josh Phegley (knee) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

    Advice: Phegley will play at least four games on the rehab assignment before he's cleared to return to the A's. In the meantime, Matt McBride will continue to serve as the primary backup for Stephen Vogt. Rotoworld.com May 20, 4:07 pm
  • Blake Swihart recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled C/OF Blake Swihart from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Swihart has been playing some left field for Pawtucket and should see some time there while Brock Holt (concussion) is sidelined. He batted .278/.391/.278 in six games for the Red Sox last month before being sent down. Rotoworld.com May 20, 9:39 am
