  • Phils' Williams benched for not hustling
    Phillies prospect outfielder Nick Williams was benched Tuesday for not hustling.

    Advice: Williams was previously benched for two games earlier this month for not running hard on a pop-up. Triple-A Lehigh Valley manager Dave Brundage said the continued discipline is about "teaching him how to play the game right." It's unclear if he'll return to the lineup Wednesday. Williams, who was acquired in the Cole Hamels deal last year, is batting .285/.329/.460 with seven homers, 36 RBI, and five steals over 67 games this season in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:28 am

  • Billy Hamilton homers in loss to Cubs
    Billy Hamilton ripped a solo homer in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Hamilton broke up Jon Lester's shutout with a solo shot to lead off the eighth inning. The Reds then tied things up in the ninth before eventually falling in the 15th. The dinger was Hamilton's lone hit on the night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Thompson has two hits, steal versus Brewers
    Trayce Thompson went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Thompson's two hits snapped an 0-for-19 streak at the plate. The stolen base was his fifth of the season in six tries, but three of those steals came in a single game earlier this month. If he ran more, the 25-year-old would make for a more interesting fantasy player, but as it is he's batting a pedestrian .238/.319/.456 with 11 home runs, 27 RBI and 29 runs scored in 68 games.

  • Rays activate Brandon Guyer from 15-day DL
    Rays activated OF Brandon Guyer from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Given the extent of the injuries the Rays have suffered in the outfield, Guyer should see all of the playing time that he can handle. He has been sidelined since June 4 with a hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:04 pm
  • Rays designate Jaff Decker for assignment
    Rays designated OF Jaff Decker for assignment.

    Advice: The club neededed a roster spot with Brandon Guyer returning from the disabled list, and Decker was the odd-man out. He's likely to pass through waivers and continue to function as outfield depth in the minors. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:59 pm

  • Miller hits 10th home run in loss to Red Sox
    Brad Miller hit his 10th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Miller connected with a Junichi Tazawa pitch in the seventh inning for the solo bomb. He's now homered four times in his last 11 games after hitting six in his first 58. Miller's .319 batting average over his last 12 games has his overall line up to .248/.299/.455. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:41 pm

  • Athletics option INF Max Muncy to Triple-A
    Athletics optioned INF Max Muncy to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The 25-year-old utility man became the odd-man out with Josh Reddick returning on Tuesday. He hit a respectable .257/.366/.314 with a pair of RBI in just 41 plate appearances during his time with the big league club. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:37 pm

  • Alex Gordon not in Royals lineup on Tuesday
    Alez Gordon is not in the Royals starting lineup for Tuesday's showdown against the Cardinals.

    Advice: The Royals are easing Gordon back into action after missing over a month due to a broken bone in his hand. Whit Merrifield is getting the call in left field and batting leadoff while Christian Colon mans second base for the Royals on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm
  • Hunter Renfroe explodes for four hits Monday
    Padres OF prospect Hunter Renfroe contributed four hits Monday in a win for Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: He homered and drove in four runs as the Chihuahuas cruised to 13-3 win over Reno. Renfroe has gone ballistic this month, hitting an electric .330 with six blasts and 28 RBI. The former first-round pick leads the Pacific Coast League in home runs (18) and hits (102) this season. He's also second in RBI (67) and runs scored (58). Renfroe has nothing left to prove in the minors. Right now he's just waiting for a spot to open up in San Diego's outfield. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:39 am

  • Brewers designate OF Presley for assignment
    Brewers designated OF Alex Presley for assignment.

    Advice: Jake Elmore was called up Tuesday and took his spot on the 40-man roster. Presley is batting just .198/.271/.293 over 47 games this season, but he could draw some interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:26 am

  • Billy McKinney plates four in Monday's victory
    Cubs OF prospect Billy McKinney tripled and drove in four runs Monday in a win for Double-A Tennessee.

    Advice: He probably could have done more damage but the game was called in the sixth inning due to rain. The 21-year-old got off to a slow start this year but has picked it up a bit over the last seven games. He's hit .435 during that span while raising his season average from .245 to .264. McKinney hit .300 in 377 at-bats last season between Tennessee and High-A Myrtle Beach. The former first-round pick joined the Cubs organization in 2014 in a trade that sent Jeff Samardzija to Oakland. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:05 am

  • Padres recall OF Dickerson from Triple-A
    Padres recalled OF Alex Dickerson from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured Jon Jay (forearm) on the active roster. Dickerson has had a monster year in Triple-A, batting .382/.425/.622 with 10 homers over 62 games. Still, we're not expecting much fantasy impact in part-time at-bats in San Diego's outfield. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:54 am
  • Jon Jay placed on DL with broken forearm
    Padres placed OF Jon Jay on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20, with a broken right forearm.

    Advice: Brutal news for Jay, who was hit in the right wrist/forearm area with a pitch on June 19. According to Marty Caswell of 1090 Sports Radio in San Diego, Padres general manager A.J. Preller said that the outfielder is slated to be re-evaluated in three weeks. The 31-year-old was batting .296/.345/.407 through 68 games this season, so he was shaping up to be a nice trade chip for San Diego prior to the injury. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:46 am

  • Guyer (hamstring) could return from DL Wed.
    Brandon Guyer (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

    Advice: Guyer is 0-for-8 over two rehab games with High-A Charlotte. He played left field Monday for the first time since his hamstring injury. The plan calls for him to be evaluated Tuesday to see if he's ready to rejoin the Rays or needs another rehab game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:59 am
  • Peter Bourjos goes 3-for-5 in win
    Peter Bourjos went 3-for-5 and scored twice against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: One of the Phillies' corner outfielders finally got hot, and Bourjos has assumed the second spot in the order as a result of his recent success. That doesn't make him a strong pickup in shallow mixed leagues, but he might eke out some value in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:08 pm
  • 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 Monday, 5:58 am

  • Billy Hamilton sitting out on Sunday
    Billy Hamilton is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Jose Peraza will handle center field. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:58 am
  • Jon Jay (wrist) held out again Sunday
    Jon Jay (wrist) remained out of the Padres' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Jay hasn't played since being hit on the right wrist with a pitch a week ago. Travis Jankowski is again in center field and the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:52 am

  • Gordon homers in first game off DL
    Alex Gordon homered and doubled in his first game back from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: Gordon was having a very poor season before he broke his hand a month ago. Now back in action, perhaps he will start to generate some value for any patient fantasy owners who held onto him despite the injury and poor performance. Today's game boosts his line to .218/.322/.361 with five home runs in 147 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:05 pm
  • Guyer beginning rehab assignment Saturday
    Brandon Guyer (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Saturday.

    Advice: Guyer will serve as the DH on Saturday. He was placed on the disabled list three weeks ago with a strained hamstring. The Rays' outfield is pretty banged up right now with injuries to Steven Souza (hip), Mikie Mahtook (hand) and Kevin Kiermaier (hand), so it will be a welcome sight when Guyer returns sometime next week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:42 pm
  • Royals activate Alex Gordon from 15-day DL
    Royals activated OF Alex Gordon from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Gordon has been sidelined since May 23 due to a broken scaphoid bone in his right hand, but he was cleared to return after batting .364 (8-for-22) with a homer, a double, and five walks over six minor league rehab games. He'll return to a .211/.319/.331 batting line over 42 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:41 am
  • Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) out again Saturday
    Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: Jay hasn't played since he was hit in the wrist area with a pitch last Sunday and a stint on the disabled list remains a possibility. Travis Jankowski will start in center field again and bat leadoff Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:34 am
    15-Day DL

  • Miller to serve as designated hitter Sat.
    Brad Miller will serve as the designated hitter in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Corey Dickerson was the DH on Friday, but he's starting in left field Saturday. Tim Beckham will make the start at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:09 am
    9:10 am vs ^ Bos
     
  • Decker to start in center field Sat.
    Jaff Decker will start in center field in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Meanwhile, Desmond Jennings is on the bench. Decker has played both corner outfield spots since joining the Rays earlier this month, but this will be his first start in center field. Taylor Motter is making the start in right field Saturday while Corey Dickerson is in left. The newly-acquired Oswaldo Arcia isn't in the lineup, but he could be for Game Two. He figures to see time between DH and right field. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:43 am

  • Hamilton gets two hits and steals a base
    Billy Hamilton netted two hits, a run, a walk and his 17th stolen base of the season on Friday.

    Advice: One of the hits was a triple. After a brutally bad season at the plate last year, Hamilton has made modest strides this year. He will never help his fantasy owners in the home run or RBI categories, but his ability to steal bases by the dozen could make him a fantasy star if he could just score some runs and hit for a decent batting average. He hit .226 last year and has improved to .261 this year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:41 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

  • Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) out again Friday
    Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) is out of the Padres' lineup again Friday versus the Reds.

    Advice: Jay was hit by a pitch last Sunday and is still dealing with some swelling. He will see a hand specialist upon returning to San Diego next week and the Padres haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:09 pm

  • Jon Jay (forearm) out again Thursday vs. CIN
    Jon Jay (forearm) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Jay hasn't appeared in a game for the Padres since suffering a bruised right forearm last Sunday. He's still considered day-to-day. Travis Jankowski will bat leadoff and start in center field Thursday versus the Reds. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:29 pm

  • Alex Gordon (wrist) due back this weekend
    Alex Gordon (wrist) is on track to be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: Gordon is 4-for-11 (364) with a homer, a double, and two RBI through three rehab games with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He'll probably play one or two more rehab games before returning to Kansas City. Gordon landed on the disabled list May 23 after suffering a broken scaphoid bone in his right hand during a costly outfield collision with Mike Moustakas. Moose is done for the year with a torn ACL. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:24 am
  • Trayce Thompson out of LAD lineup Tues.
    Trayce Thompson is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Yasiel Puig will start in right field and bat seventh in his return from the disabled list. Thompson went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Monday against the Nationals and is batting just .212 over his last 30 games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:54 pm
  • Jon Jay sitting Tuesday with bruised forearm
    Jon Jay is out of the Padres' lineup Tuesday after bruising his right forearm Sunday.

    Advice: He'll be reevaluated on Wednesday, per Padres manager Andy Green. Jay has been a nice little surprise for San Diego this season, slashing .296/.345/.407 with an NL-leading 24 doubles in 68 games. He'll make for a nice trade chip next month if he can stay healthy.

  • Guyer (hamstring) nearing baseball activity
    Brandon Guyer (hamstring) could begin baseball activities on Friday.

    Advice: Guyer has been sidelined for a little over two weeks with a left hamstring strain, but he has increased his running in recent days and could take some swings against rehabbing right-handers Alex Cobb and Chase Whitley later this week. He appears on track to return in the early part of July. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:32 am
  • Trayce Thompson goes 0-for-4 against Nats
    Trayce Thompson went 0-for-4 and struck out three times Monday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Thompson is hitting just .212 over his last 30 games, though he does have five homers and 15 walks over that span. His decline is all BABIP, and there's nothing so far to suggest he's overmatched. Still, he should be losing some playing time against right-handers with Yasiel Puig back.
