  • Hundley hits ninth homer in loss to Mariners
    Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Hundley took Mariners starter Vidal Nuno deep in the fourth inning for his ninth home run of the season. The move to the Rockies has definitely aided Hundley's offense, as he's now hitting .303/.343/.472 with 39 RBI and 40 runs scored on the season. Yesterday, 10:57 pm
  • Parker launches first major league home run
    Kyle Parker hit his first major league home run in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: With the outcome of the game still in the balance, Parker hit a solo shot off reliever Mayckol Guaipe -- not exactly the most memorable opposing pitcher against whom to hit a first-ever homer -- in the sixth inning. It was Parker's lone hit in four at-bats. Parker is hitting .286/.333/.500 after Tuesday's game but will need to show more of that power before becoming fantasy relevant. Yesterday, 10:50 pm
  • Urshela's 12th-inning HR breaks scoreless tie
    Giovanny Urshela smacked a two-run home run in the 12th inning to break a scoreless tie, allowing the Indians to beat the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Urshela finished 3-for-5 with a double on the night. The Indians were able to pound out 10 hits and draw three walks, but couldn't capitalize until the 12th. It was a welcome night for Urshela, as he had been held hitless since the fifth inning on July 30. He's batting .247/.283/.367 with four home runs and 12 RBI. Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Blanco scores four runs in win over Braves
    Gregor Blanco went 2-for-3 with four runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Blanco walked twice along with his two hits, scoring all four times he reached base on the evening. Blanco is getting more playing time in recent days with Angel Pagan ailing. The 31-year-old is hitting .295/.376/.420 overall. Yesterday, 8:18 pm
  • Ramos' two late RBI prove crucial to Nats
    Wilson Ramos hit a tie-breaking two-run single in the eighth inning, proving crucial in Tuesday's one-run victory against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Ramos broke a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning when he plated two runs against reliever David Hernandez. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk on the evening. The catcher hasn't been much to write home about offensively, batting .239/.266/.365 with nine home runs and 45 RBI. Yesterday, 7:53 pm
  • McGehee hitless again, average down to .208
    Casey McGehee went hitless again Tuesday, lowering his average to .208.

    Advice: McGehee went 0-for-3 before being removed from the game. He's 6-for-41 since July 17, dropping his overall line to .208/.277/.298. The Marlins aren't going anywhere, but it's hard to understand why they keep running him out there at this point. Yesterday, 7:51 pm
  • Tejada has two hits, RBI in win over Marlins
    Ruben Tejada went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Tejada's RBI single in the sixth inning tied the score, and the Mets eventually won the game. The RBI was just his second since July 21 and 20th overall. The light-hitting shortstop is batting .255/.322/.341 overall. Yesterday, 7:45 pm
  • David Freese (finger) could return next week
    David Freese (finger) said Tuesday that he could return to the Angels' lineup by next week.

    Advice: He'll have missed three weeks at that point with a non-displaced fracture in his right index finger. Conor Gillaspie has filled in nicely for Freese at third base, batting .286/.310/.536 with a homer and six RBI over seven contests. Yesterday, 5:03 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) back in lineup
    Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) is back in the Indians' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Chisenhall had to exit Monday's contest after suffering whiplash on a diving attempt. He's making his fifth straight start in right field. Yesterday, 3:41 pm
  • Giants outright Joaquin Arias to AAA Fresno
    Giants sent INF Joaquin Arias outright to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Arias was designated for assignment by the Giants on July 27 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 30-year-old is a .265/.293/.350 career hitter in the majors. Yesterday, 2:51 pm

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

    Advice: Muncy gets the boot to clear a roster spot for Danny Valencia, who was claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays on Monday. Muncy, 24, has batted just .207/.275/.378 in 91 plate appearances this season for Toronto. Yesterday, 1:23 pm

  • Ackley (back) expected to miss 20-30 days
    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that Dustin Ackley (back) is expected to miss 20-30 days.

    Advice: Ackley, who was acquired from the Mariners last week, was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a right lumbar strain. He was healthy at the time of the trade, so the Yankees have no dispute with the Mariners. Still, it's a tough break. Cashman says that surgery could be an issue if he doesn't show improvement. Yesterday, 12:37 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Dodgers activate Elis from 15-day DL
    Dodgers activated C A.J. Ellis from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Ellis has been out since July 19 with right knee inflammation. He'll continue to serve as Yasmani Grandal's backup. Yesterday, 10:44 am
  • Yanks place Ackley (lumbar strain) on DL
    Yankees placed OF/INF Dustin Ackley on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 3, with a right lumbar strain.

    Advice: Ackley was acquired from the Mariners last week and was a potential threat for playing time at second base, but that will have to wait for now. The Yankees called up right-hander Caleb Cotham to take his place on the active roster. Yesterday, 10:04 am
    15-Day DL

  • Joseph homers, helping Orioles beat the A's
    Caleb Joseph hit an RBI double and a two-run home run in four at-bats on Monday, helping the Orioles to a 9-2 win against the Athletics.

    Advice: Joseph made it a 6-0 game with a two-run home run off of Jesse Chavez in the fourth inning. He tacked on an RBI double in the fifth inning to make it 8-1. Splitting time with Matt Wieters behind the plate, Joseph is hitting .250/.325/.429 with nine home runs and 37 RBI. Monday, 10:02 pm
  • Lonnie Chisenhall departs with whiplash
    Lonnie Chisenhall left Monday's game against the Angels due to a cervical strain.

    Advice: It's a fancy way of saying he had whiplash, which he suffered after making a diving attempt in right field. Consider Chisenhall day-to-day. Monday, 9:06 pm
  • Sizemore homers, Rays rally late vs White Sox
    Grady Sizemore ripped a game-tying solo home run, aiding in a comeback win over the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Sizemore entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and doubled, then later scored. The next inning, he slugged a game-tying solo home run off of lefty reliever Zach Duke. Aside from a few productive games in early July shortly after joining the Rays, Sizemore hasn't done much at the plate, batting .241/.250/.448 with three home runs and eight RBI. Monday, 9:02 pm

  • Wilson Ramos not in Nats lineup on Sunday
    Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Mets.

    Advice: It doesn't appear to be anything more than a regular day of rest for the hard-hitting backstop. Jose Lobaton will start in his place behind the dish and bat seventh against Noah Syndergaard. Sunday, 1:22 pm
  • Lonnie Chisenhall homers for Indians
    Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians' only run Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: Chisenhall is 4-for-11 in three games since returning to the majors Thursday. Since he's likely to keep on starting in the outfield against righties, he should be a nice AL-only option the rest of the way. Saturday, 10:48 pm
  • Kyle Parker called up to replace Corey Dickerson
    Rockies recalled OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: The move was expected after Corey Dickerson went down with a rib injury. Parker hasn't fared well in the big leagues, batting only .222 with 14 strikeouts in 27 lifetime at-bats. He did hit a single in his only at-bat of the season June 10 against St. Louis. Saturday, 3:32 pm
  • Rockies expected to recall Kyle Parker
    Thomas Harding of reports that the Rockies are expected to recall Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

    Advice: He'll take the place of the injured Corey Dickerson. The 25-year-old is hitting .280/.326/.431 with nine homers and 58 RBI in 93 games at Triple-A, though he isn't likely to see enough playing time to be fantasy relevant outside of NL-only formats. Saturday, 10:39 am
  • Rays recall Grady Sizemore from Triple-A
    Rays recalled OF Grady Sizemore from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: He takes the place of Mikie Mahtook on the Rays roster. Prior to his demotion, the veteran outfielder was hitting .235/.245/.392 with two homers, seven RBI and a 13/1 K/BB ratio in 15 games with the Rays. Saturday, 7:09 am

  • Lonnie Chisenhall goes 3-for-4, doubles
    Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

    Advice: Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. Ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016. Saturday, 12:05 am
  • Indians recall Lonnie Chisenhall from AAA
    Indians recalled INF Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: With Brandon Moss shipped out of town, Chisenhall could see some action in the corner outfield, where he had been working in the minors. Unless he finds everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats. Thursday, 4:00 pm
  • Yankees acquire Dustin Ackley from Mariners
    Yankees acquired OF/INF Dustin Ackley from the Mariners for OF Ramon Flores and RHP Jose Ramirez.

    Advice: The Mariners selected Ackley with the No. 2 overall pick in 2009, but things never quite came together for him in Seattle, as he produced a disappointing .243/.306/.366 batting line over 584 games. The Yankees will have to hope that the change of scenery will make a difference for him. He could be a possibility to get some looks at second base over Stephen Drew. Thursday, 1:57 pm

  • Report: Yankees to acquire Dustin Ackley
    Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees are set to acquire Dustin Ackley from the Mariners.

    Advice: Ramon Flores and Jose Ramirez will be going back to Seattle. Ackley, 27, is batting just .215/.270/.366 with six home runs and 19 RBI over 207 plate appearances this season. While he's another option for second base, he has mostly played in the outfield in 2015. Thursday, 1:27 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm vs Bos
  • A.J. Ellis (knee) catches bullpen session
    A.J. Ellis (knee) caught a bullpen session on Monday.

    Advice: Ellis should be ready to go early next week when his 15 days are up. Austin Barnes will continue to back up Yasmani Grandal in the meantime. Wednesday, 7:28 am
  • Max Muncy recalled from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled INF Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: He's taking Ben Zobrist's spot on the roster. Muncy has hit only .203/.273/.367 with the big club this season. Tuesday, 4:01 pm

  • Joaquin Arias designated for assignment
    Giants designated INF Joaquin Arias for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears space on the roster for the return of Nori Aoki. Arias has been with the Giants since 2012 but was hitting just .207/.207/.276 this season. He'll clear waivers given his $1.45 million salary and should remain in the organization. Monday, 4:29 pm

  • Joseph drills a homer, helping O's best Rays
    Caleb Joseph went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win versus the Rays.

    Advice: Joseph took Matt Moore out to left-center in the fourth inning, extending the Orioles' lead to 5-0. The backstop has now registered multiple RBI in four of his last seven games, giving him 30 RBI on the season along with seven home runs and a .235/.306/.390 batting line. Jul 26, 1:06 pm
