  • Motter hitless in loss to Orioles
    Taylor Motter went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Saturday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Motter is now batting .174/.275/.290 on the year. He’s been getting playing time in the outfield recently due to a long list of injuries for the Rays, but Oswaldo Arcia’s arrival should change that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm
  • Dodgers recall INF Taylor from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled INF Chris Taylor from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Taylor was just acquired from the Mariners last weekend in exchange for right-hander Zach Lee. The 25-year-old is a .240/.296/.296 hitter in the majors and will serve as a backup infield. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:49 pm
  • 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 Yesterday, 8:09 am
  • Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 and hit his first home run of the season on Friday night.

    Advice: Escobar has been a lost cause at the plate this year, batting .252/.276/.311 with 25 runs and 19 RBI. His one strength is his 10 stolen bases. He has averaged four home runs per year in his career, so tonight's bomb was a rarity. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:19 pm
  • Ahmed (hip) not in Friday's lineup
    Nick Ahmed (hip) is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup again Friday.

    Advice: Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that Ahmed is dealing with "hip issues," but he's expected to return on Saturday. Jean Segura will play shortstop while Phil Gosselin will start at second base. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:36 pm
  • Chris Owings (foot) hits in simulated game
    Chris Owings (foot) took at-bats in a simulated game on Thursday.

    Advice: Owings had been hoping to be playing in rehab games by now, but he is making progress. "That’s a step in the right direction," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said of the simulated game. Owings should be cleared for game action soon if all goes well. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:14 am

  • Semien's three-run homer leads A's over LAA
    Marcus Semien went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Angels.

    Advice: Semien was starter Kendall Graveman's best friend on Thursday, mashing a three-run homer in the second inning to jump the A's to a 3-0 advantage. He has six RBI over his last three games. With 13 home runs on the season, he is now just two away from matching the career-best 15 he socked in 2015. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:19 pm
  • Freddy Galvis homers, knocks in five
    Freddy Galvis homered, tripled and knocked in five runs as the Phillies topped the Twins 7-3 on Thursday.

    Advice: Galvis picked up an RBI on a squeeze bunt his first time up and then sacrificed again in his second plate appearance. Nonetheless, he finished with five RBI, making him the first person since Hack Wilson in 1928 with two sac hits and five RBI in a game. The homer was a three-run shot off Kevin Jepsen. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:00 pm
  • Cesar Hernandez reaches five times
    Cesar Hernandez went 4-for-4 with a walk and three runs scored versus the Twins on Thursday.

    Advice: Hernandez's OBP was down to .293, but this will help a whole lot. What's really disappointing from a fantasy perspective is that he's just 3-for-8 stealing bases. He never figured to contribute much in the other categories, but he did seem like a solid bet for 20 steals going into the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:50 pm
  • Mets promote Amed Rosario to Double-A
    Mets shortstop prospect Amed Rosario has been promoted from High-A St. Lucie to Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: Rosario earned the promotion by batting .309/.359/.442 with three home runs, 40 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 27 runs scored in 66 games at the High-A level. The 20-year-old top shortstop prospect will be one of the youngest players in the Double-A Eastern League. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:10 pm

  • Orlando Arcia leaves the yard twice Wednesday
    Brewers SS prospect Orlando Arcia homered twice in Wednesday's doubleheader for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Colorado Springs split the doubleheader, winning the first game before falling to Memphis in the nightcap. The 21-year-old only logged two hits in the double dip but made them count by driving in five runs. Arcia has held his own in Triple-A, batting .282 with six homers, 32 RBI and 10 steals. He was a rockstar in Double-A last season, batting .307 with 69 RBI and 25 thefts while leading Biloxi to its first division title. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:14 am

  • Andres Blanco goes 3-for-4 homers
    Andres Blanco went 3-for-4 and hit his third homer Wednesday against the Twins.

    Advice: Blanco had been in a five-week slump that dropped his OPS from .952 on May 14 to a more appropriate .722 entering tonight's affair. Still, he's been a really nice utilityman for the Phillies this last year and a half, and some contender might try to add him next month. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:18 pm

  • Eugenio Suarez hits three-run homer
    Eugenio Suarez went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer against the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Suarez has picked it back up some this month after his very rough second half of April and May. He's still hitting just .229 overall, but there shouldn't be any giving up on a middle-infield type with 14 homers in 72 games. It's true he's playing third base now, but he could always wind up back at short or second next year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:41 pm
  • Janish accepts outright assignment to minors
    Paul Janish accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Janish is just a .216/.284/.289 hitter for his career. And he was hitting even worse than that this season, holding an uneasy .194/.286/.226 triple-slash across 35 plate appearances with the big league club. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:27 pm

  • Swanson rips two hits in Tuesday's All-Star Game
    Braves SS prospect Dansby Swanson contributed two hits Tuesday while guiding the South All-Stars to a win in the Southern League All-Star Game.

    Advice: Both hits were singles. Last year's No. 1 overall pick has shown flashes with five homers and 10 steals this season but hasn't put it all together yet. He's had a tough June, hitting only .177 with 20 strikeouts in 62 at-bats. There's still plenty of time for the 22-year-old to develop. Swanson is considered baseball's sixth-best prospect, according to MLB.com. He's probably about a year away from the major leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:23 am

  • Semien drives in three as A's drop Brewers
    Marcus Semien went 3-for-4 with a two-run triple and three total RBI in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Semien's RBI single in the sixth inning tied the game at 2-2. He would come up again an inning later, this time with the A's holding a 3-2 lead. Semien added to that with a two-run triple. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .238/.305/.430 with 12 homers, 31 RBI and five steals over 70 games played. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:56 pm
  • Orioles outright Paul Janish to Norfolk
    Orioles sent INF Paul Janish outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Janish batted .194/.286/.226 in 35 plate appearances with the O's. He is a .216/.284/.289 career hitter. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:38 pm

  • Dodgers acquire Chris Taylor from Mariners
    Dodgers acquired INF Chris Taylor from the Mariners for RHP Zach Lee.

    Advice: The 25-year-old infielder has struggled in every chance he has received at the big league level, but was raking to the tune of .311/.388/.459 with three homers, 29 RBI and 12 stolen bases at Triple-A Tacoma. He'll add infield depth for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 6:55 pm
  • Chris Owings (foot) nearing rehab games
    Chris Owings (foot) could begin a rehab assignment with rookie league Arizona by the middle of the week.

    Advice: The hope is that Owings will be ready for activation from the disabled list sometime during the Diamondacks' homestand, which begins on June 27. He's missed over a week of action with plantar fasciitis in his left foot but has apparently made progress in recent days. Rotoworld.com Jun 19, 8:52 am

  • Eugenio Suarez delivers game-winner in 11th
    Eugenio Suarez came through with an RBI double in the 11th inning on Friday, propelling the Reds to a 4-2 victory over the Astros in Houston.

    Advice: Suarez had been hitless in three at-bats on the evening before that point. After Adam Duvall singled to lead off the ninth inning, Suarez wasted no time, jumping on the first pitch he saw from Pat Neshek to break a 2-2 tie. He has slowed considerably after a hot start to the season, now hitting .227/.288/.420 with 13 homers and 35 RBI. Rotoworld.com Jun 17, 9:18 pm
  • Brad Miller hits seventh homer in loss Friday
    Brad Miller swatted his seventh home run of the season as the Rays fell to the Giants in the opening game of a three-game set on Friday.

    Advice: Miller's ninth-inning blast off Jeff Samardzija was the only thing that prevented the Rays from being shut out. He finished the night 1-for-4, raising his season slash to .234/.289/.428 to go along with the aforementioned seven bombs and 22 RBI. Rotoworld.com Jun 17, 7:35 pm
  • Eugenio Suarez out of Reds' lineup Thurs.
    Eugenio Suarez is out Thursday versus the Braves.

    Advice: Ivan DeJesus Jr. will start at third base and bat seventh in the matinee game against Atlanta right-hander Matt Wisler. Suarez got off to a great start this season, but he's stuck in another offensive rut and batting just .227/.287/.421 in 254 total plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Jun 16, 7:38 am
