  • Jimmy Rollins getting a breather Sunday
    Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just receiving some rest. Carlos Sanchez is filling in at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:54 am
  • Galvis homers, has three RBI to top Indians
    Freddy Galvis went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to help the Phillies top the Indians 4-3 on Saturday.

    Advice: Galvis took Indians starter Trevor Bauer deep for a two-run shot in the first inning, but it was his RBI single in the bottom of the seventh that proved to be the difference in the game. Galvis now has three home runs, 10 RBI and 10 runs scored to go with a .233/.264/.419 line through 23 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:31 pm
  • Jimmy Rollins not in lineup on Saturday
    Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a day of rest for the 37-year-old shortstop. Tyler Saladino will once again fill in for him and bat second against Kevin Gausman and the Orioles on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:43 pm
  • Peralta expected to begin rehab on May 21st
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Friday that he expects Jhonny Peralta (thumb) to begin a minor league rehab assignment around May 21.

    Advice: With that timetable in mind, Mozeliak noted that Peralta would likely need about a week's worth of games before he's ready to rejoin the Cardinals. Barring any setbacks, he could be looking at a return to the big league roster during the first week of June. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:13 am

  • Red Sox recall Marco Hernandez from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled INF Marco Hernandez from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: The 23-year-old infielder appeared in one game with the Red Sox earlier this month, going 1-for-2 plus a walk in his three plate appearances. He provides depth on the bench for the Red Sox, but isn't expected to play enough to generate any type of fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:58 am
  • Espinosa socks two-run homer vs. Cards
    Danny Espinosa went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday’s win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: After Jayson Werth gave the Nationals the lead in the fourth inning with a sacrifice fly, Espinosa followed by taking Mike Leake deep for his first home run of the season. It was nice to see, but he’ll need to do more to silence those clamoring for top prospect Trea Turner. Espinosa is batting just .194/.320/.258 through 22 games this season.

  • Desmond continues hot hitting Friday
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead RBI double in Friday’s 4-2 win over the Angels.

    Advice: Desmond’s hot hitting continues. The 30-year-old batted just .109 through his first 12 games this season, but he’s hitting .394 (13-for-33) with three home runs, three doubles, and nine RBI over his last 10 games. He has also drawn six walks in that time. Those fantasy owners who were patient are being rewarded. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:42 pm

  • Cabrera knocks in two runs vs. Giants
    Asdrubal Cabrera was 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: Cabrera contributed to the Mets’ huge third inning with a two-run double. We haven’t seen much power from him thus far, as he has just one home run through 21 games, but he has a strong .312/.369/.416 batting line. The 30-year-old has averaged 15 home runs per season since 2012, so it’s just a matter of time before we see some more pop. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:34 pm
  • Brad Miller clubs solo homer in loss to Jays
    Brad Miller clubbed his second home run of the season as the Rays fell to the Blue Jays on Friday evening.

    Advice: Miller's solo blast off Drew Storen in the eighth inning merely got the Rays on the board, barely cutting into a 6-0 deficit at the time. He also singled, finishing the night 2-for-3 plus a walk to raise his season slash to .172/.243/.344. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:58 pm

  • Nick Ahmed sitting out on Friday
    Nick Ahmed is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Jean Segura has slid over to shortstop, and Brandon Drury will play second base. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:21 pm

  • Tyler Saladino nursing some back tightness
    Tyler Saladino has been dealing with some back tightness of late.

    Advice: It helps explain why he hasn't started a game since Sunday, although he did make an appearance late in Thursday's contest. Saladino has played a decent amount this season as the White Sox try to keep Jimmy Rollins fresh. The back ailment doesn't seem to be a big deal, although the Sox didn't call up Carlos Sanchez for some more infield protection. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:09 am
  • Espinosa hitless in loss to Phillies
    Danny Espinosa went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Thursday’s loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Espinosa is now batting .172/.310/.190 overall. Meanwhile, top prospect shortstop Trea Turner entered Thursday’s action with a .357/.430/.529 batting line over 18 games with Triple-A Syracuse. Just saying. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:25 pm

  • Villar has three hits, three steals in loss
    Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with a walk, three stolen bases, and two runs scored Thursday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Domingo Santana got the day off Thursday, so Villar made his second start of the season out of the leadoff spot. He took advantage of the opportunity, increasing his batting average from .230 to .262 with his big day at the plate. He was also finally active on the base paths. The 24-year-old entered the day just 2-for-4 in stolen base attempts this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:51 pm

  • Andrelton Simmons hits first homer
    Andrelton Simmons hit his first homer of the year Wednesday in the Angels' 4-2 defeat of the Royals.

    Advice: It's a start. Simmons should be hitting ninth in the AL lineup, but the Angels have so little talent in the bottom half of their order that they've taken to hitting him sixth. He's batting .241/.259/.325 with five RBI and six runs scored through 83 at-bats. He has as many GIDPs as RBI. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:19 am
  • Iglesias collects two hits and steals a base
    Jose Iglesias went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base on Wednesday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Iglesias doesn't get much attention due to his utter lack of power. He continues to show value in deep mixed leagues and AL-only leagues, though, because he's still hitting for average and stealing a handful of bases. On that point, he now owns a .297/.366/.313 slash line with a pair of steals in 2016. That ain't nothing to write home about, to be sure, but it's a profile that carries fantasy value in the right league. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:16 pm
  • Erick Aybar goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Erick Aybar went 0-for-4 and struck out three times Wednesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: With his below average defense at shortstop, .138 average and one RBI in 75 at-bats, Aybar is on the short list for baseball's worst regular to date. Still, he's not really this bad and there's little reason for the Braves to move on, even if Daniel Castro is better defensively. He'll get hot eventually, and once it happens, the Braves will quickly seek to trade him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:55 pm

  • Amed Rosario boes berserk with four RBI
    Mets SS prospect Amed Rosario finished a double shy of the cycle Tuesday in a win for High-A Port St. Lucie.

    Advice: He plated four of the Mets' 10 runs while pushing his season total to 13 RBI. Eight of those RBI have come in his last three games. The 20-year-old has really come into his own this year. He leads the Florida State League with five triples and ranks second in slugging percentage (.590) behind Clearwater's Mitch Walding (.600). Rosario is also second on the team with five stolen bases. He's been caught twice. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:41 am

  • Desmond homers, scores three runs vs. Yanks
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Advice: The revitalization of Desmond continues. Left for dead after a terrible start, he's 10-for-25 (.400) with three home runs, seven RBI, 10 runs scored and three steals in his last eight games. His 17 runs scored on the year are third-best in the American League. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:40 pm

  • Nick Ahmed ejected in 12th inning on Sunday
    Nick Ahmed was ejected during the 12th inning of Sunday's game against the Pirates for arguing a questionable third strike.

    Advice: While he may have had a point, as the pitch looked like it should have been ball four, it put the D'Backs in quite a predicament as they didn't have any position players remaining. Shelby Miller was forced into the game to play left field due to Ahmed's ejection. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 6:18 pm

  • Jimmy Rollins sitting out on Sunday
    Jimmy Rollins is absent from the White Sox' lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: Rollins has received many days off this month as the White Sox do their best to keep the 37-year-old healthy. Tyler Saladino is filling in at shortstop and in the No. 2 spot in the batting order. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 8:10 am
  • Ahmed gets on base three times in win
    Nick Ahmed got on base three times in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Pirates, scoring a pair of runs.

    Advice: Ahmed doesn't have a dynamic bat, but walked twice and singled to provide a spark in the middle-third of the Diamondbacks' batting order. He is now hitting .226/.284/.403 in 67 PA. Defense will always remain his calling card, and his glove has been good enough to keep him in the everyday lineup, despite the weak bat. His fantasy relevance is limited to NL-only leagues.

  • Cabrera hits first home run against Braves
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: The solo homer was an afterthought in the ninth inning of a five-run game, but it surely was a boost to Cabrera's confidence. Not that he needs it -- the shortstop is hitting .322/.375/.441 through 16 games with his new club. He's hit safely in 13 of those 16 games to date. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 7:33 pm
  • Desmond homers, scores three runs against Sox
    Ian Desmond hit a solo home run, stole two bases and scored three runs against the White Sox on Saturday.

    Advice: Desmond has shown some signs of life lately, homering in two of his last three games and reaching base in seven straight. The walks are an especially promising sign that he's seeing the ball better -- he walked three times Saturday and has nine compared to 18 strikeouts on the year. He'll never hit for a high average, but the power and speed aspects of his game make him a very worthwhile player to own when he's right. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 4:40 pm

  • Jose Iglesias not in Tigers lineup Saturday
    Jose Iglesias is not in the Tigers starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Indians.

    Advice: Nothing more than a day of rest for the slick-fielding shortstop. Andrew Romine is drawing the start in his place and will bat eighth against Corey Kluber. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 6:36 am
  • Galvis triples in win over Brewers
    Freddy Galvis went 1-for-3 with an RBI-triple in the Phillies' 5-2 win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Galvis smacked a triple down the right-field line in the fifth inning. It gave the Phillies the lead and raised his average to .246. He moved back up to second in the batting order on Friday, which makes him a bit more interesting in really deep mixed leagues. The best thing for his fantasy value, though, would be to start running more often on the bases. Batting in front of Maikel Franco makes that very unlikely, and if he moves down to seventh or eighth in the order, there's very little reason to own him anyway. Rotoworld.com Apr 22, 8:54 pm
  • Jimmy Rollins sitting out on Friday
    Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's just getting some rest. Tyler Saladino is handling shortstop. The White Sox also have Jerry Sands in the designated hitter spot over Avisail Garcia. Rotoworld.com Apr 22, 2:43 pm
  • Desmond rocks three-run homer off Keuchel
    Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Astros.

    Advice: Desmond jump-started the Ranger offense, connecting for a three-run homer off reigning AL Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was Desmond's first of the 2016 campaign. Through his first 57 at-bats, the 30-year-old is hitting a lackluster .158/.226/.246. Unless he can start hitting more consistently, his fantasy value is limited. Rotoworld.com Apr 21, 7:55 pm
