  • Carlos Gonzalez not in Rockies lineup Friday
    Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: It's just a regular day of rest for Gonzalez against opposing left-hander Robbie Ray. He's off to a nice start at the plate in 2016, slashing .310/.355/.529 with four homers and 12 RBI in 21 games. Rotoworld.com 54 minutes ago
  • Matt Garza (lat) resumes throwing program
    Matt Garza (lat) resumed a throwing program on Friday.

    Advice: He just did a little playing catch, as he's at the beginning of a long rehab process. Garza was moved to the 60-day disabled list on Thursday, which means he's not eligible to return until June. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:45 pm

  • Alex Meyer to start for Twins on Tuesday
    Alex Meyer will make his first major league start on Tuesday in Houston.

    Advice: He's replacing Tommy Milone in the rotation. Meyer has started and relieved since the beginning of last season, putting up a 1.04 ERA and 19/4 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings at Triple-A Rochester in 2016. He has major control issues but also a big arm, so it will be interesting to see how he fares. He's worth a shot if you're in a deep league. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:33 pm
  • Jon Moscot (shoulder) to make next start
    Jon Moscot (shoulder) is expected to make his next start.

    Advice: Moscot had some soreness in his surgically-repaired left (non-throwing) shoulder on Wednesday in his last outing, but there's apparently no cause for concern. He's scheduled to face the Giants next week. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:02 pm

  • Jarrod Saltalamacchia sitting out Friday
    Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the Tigers' lineup on Friday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Bobby Wilson is catching. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:53 pm
  • Sam Fuld (shoulder) moved to 60-day DL
    Athletics transferred OF Sam Fuld from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Sean Manaea. Fuld remains out indefinitely with a strained shoulder. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:52 pm

  • Ross Detwiler designated for assignment
    Indians designated LHP Ross Detwiler for assignment.

    Advice: Detwiler holds a 5.79 ERA this season and a 7.14 mark since the beginning of 2015. He'll surely have to settle for a minor league deal somewhere. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:51 am

  • David Goforth recalled from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Goforth posted a 4.35 ERA over his first eight relief appearances with Colorado Springs. He'll work in the middle innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:37 am
  • Luis Garcia optioned to Triple-A
    Phillies optioned RHP Luis Garcia to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Garcia was only up for a few days, throwing one scoreless inning with the big club. He should get another shot with Philly at some point this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:19 am

  • Lincecum could have showcase next week
    MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that Tim Lincecum could have a showcase for teams next week.

    Advice: We've been waiting for said showcase for months now, but 20 teams are expected to be in attendance whenever it finally takes place. Heyman hears that Lincecum was "consistently" in the 90-91 mph range on Monday and is likely to throw again this weekend. The 31-year-old is coming off hip surgery and had a 4.13 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 60/38 K/BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings last season for the Giants. It's tough to have high expectations at this point.

  • Gennett (oblique) expected to miss 3 weeks
    The Brewers expect Scooter Gennett (oblique) to miss three weeks of action.

    Advice: Gennett was placed on the disabled list Thursday with a strained right oblique. The injury didn't require an MRI, though, as the club believes the strain is a slight one. "It's not a bad (injury)," manager Craig Counsell said. "They didn't do an MRI. It wasn't deemed serious enough for that. It's still a DL (situation), though. These things are a little tricky so we'll go with it. He's not playing for at least two weeks, then we'll see." Yadiel Rivera has made two straight starts at second base with Gennett out, but Colin Walsh and Hernan Perez should see some time there, as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:50 am

  • Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) now 'pain-free'
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) is now "pain-free" after receiving a cortisone shot.

    Advice: However, it's unclear when Gallardo, who is dealing with tendinitis in his rotator cuff, will resume throwing. "He’s started with his exercises with the cuff," Showalter said. "That’s where you get an idea of how strong it is or isn’t by the number of the weight or the weights that you can use. It gives you an idea of how far away somebody is by the amount of weight they start at with the strength exercises. It’s a process, but we like the potential of the return, so we’ll go as fast as we can but as slow as we need to." Rotoworld.com Today, 5:59 am

  • Fernandez fans eight Dodgers in victory
    Jose Fernandez pitched a respectable game in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Dodgers, striking out eight and allowing two runs over six innings.

    Advice: Along with the eight strikeouts, Fernandez walked three while scattering five hits. The two runs on his line both came home to roost in the first inning courtesy of an RBI double by Yasmani Grandal and an RBI infield single by Yasiel Puig. Fernandez settled in after that frame. The flamethrower has produced a mixed-bag season through five starts, pitching to a 4.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 40/14 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings. He will play host to the Diamondbacks in his next start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Hermann clocks two-run homer in win over STL
    Chris Herrmann went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Herrmann also struck out twice, but he at least made his lone hit count. The 28-year-old backstop clocked a two-run shot off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha in the second inning. The dinger was his second of the season. That aside, he has seen just 28 at-bats this season and offers no fantasy upside. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:12 pm
  • Wacha surrenders three runs over 7 IP vs ARI
    Michael Wacha couldn't quite pick up the win in Thursday's defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks, surrendering three runs on five hits over seven innings.

    Advice: It was a fine start for Wacha overall, but he couldn't match the superlative De La Rosa, who tossed seven shutout innings. For his part, Wacha struck out nine, walked two and allowed a pair of homers. Chris Herrmann burned him for a two-run shot in the second inning and Brandon Drury smacked a solo homer in the fourth. Wacha will carry a 3.07 ERA and 1.33 WHIP (five starts, 29 1/3 innings) into his next start, a home jaunt against the Phillies. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Brewers move Matt Garza (lat) to 60-day DL
    Brewers transferred RHP Matt Garza from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Which means he is going to be sidelined until at least early June. Garza was placed on the 15-day disabled list April 5, retroactive to April 2, with a right lat strain. The initial recovery timetable was 4-6 weeks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:03 am

  • Brewers put Scooter Gennett (oblique) on DL
    Brewers placed 2B Scooter Gennett on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

    Advice: Gennett suffered the injury during batting practice Tuesday on a cold evening at Wrigley Field. He could be out for a month. It's an especially tough blow because the second baseman was off to a great start this season, sporting an .877 OPS and four home runs in 18 games. Yadiel Rivera, Colin Walsh, and Hernan Perez will fill in at second base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:59 am

  • Moscot gives up four runs in just five frames
    Jon Moscot went five innings against the Mets on Wednesday, giving up three runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks.

    Advice: Moscot did his best to make up for suspect defensive work before leaving with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. The Reds’ defense committed three errors, which probably should’ve resulted in more runs than it did considering the fact that Moscot allowed eight baserunners on his own. Still, he finished with just one run credited to him. Before worrying about him in fantasy leagues, though, remember that he has more earned runs (7) and walks (9) than strikeouts, as well as a potential left (non-throwing) shoulder injury.

  • Jon Moscot undergoes X-ray on shoulder
    Jon Moscot underwent an X-ray on his surgically-repaired non-throwing shoulder.

    Advice: Per MLB.com's Mark Sheldon, the Reds are hoping that this is just scar tissue breaking up in Moscot's shoulder rather than something more serious. The 24-year-old right-hander underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder last June. In his first two starts this season, Moscot had allowed seven runs (six earned) on nine hits over 10 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:39 pm

  • Scooter Gennett scratched with tight oblique
    Scooter Gennett was scratched from the Brewers' lineup Tuesday due to right oblique tightness.

    Advice: The change happened just before first pitch at Wrigley Field, after Gennett's oblique tightened up during batting practice. The second baseman is considered day-to-day for now, but oblique injuries will sometimes linger. Gennett has produced an .877 OPS with four home runs in 18 games this season. Yadiel Rivera is starting at second on Tuesday night against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:14 pm

  • Gennett late scratch from the Brewers lineup
    Scooter Gennett was scratched from the Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: No reason has been given yet for the sudden absence. There should be an update from the Brewers either during the game (8:05 p.m. ET first pitch) or after. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:09 pm

  • Alex Meyer added to Twins' major league 'pen
    Twins recalled RHP Alex Meyer from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Meyer will join the Twins as a long reliever. He had been working as a starter at Triple-A Rochester and could eventually work his way into the Minnesota starting rotation, but there's no reason to grab him off the waiver wire right now. Meyer allowed five earned runs over 2 2/3 innings of relief last season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:27 pm
  • Twins promoting righty Alex Meyer to majors
    Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the Twins are promoting Alex Meyer.

    Advice: Meyer was working as a starter at Triple-A Rochester, but he'll fill a long relief role in Minnesota. This will be the second trip to the majors for the 26-year-old former top prospect, who allowed five earned runs in 2 2/3 innings out of the Twins' bullpen last season. He won't hold any fantasy relevance as a mop-up man. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:54 am
  • No further damage shown in Gallardo MRI
    A second MRI performed on the shoulder of Yovani Gallardo confirmed the original diagnosis of tendinitis.

    Advice: As long as that's the only issue, Gallardo could be looking at a return to the O's rotation in a matter of weeks. Before he was sidelined, the right-hander posted a 7.00 ERA and 1.67 WHIP over 18 innings of work. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:18 pm

  • Gallardo could get injection in shoulder
    Yovani Gallardo could be given a pain-killing injection if an MRI confirms he is only dealing with right shoulder and biceps tendinitis.

    Advice: Gallardo was placed on the disabled list Saturday. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but it shouldn't be terribly long if it's indeed just tendinitis. There should be an update from the O's on Monday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:06 am

    Phillies recalled RHP Luis Garcia from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

  • Fernandez gets knocked around in loss to SF
    Jose Fernandez got knocked around in Saturday’s loss to the Giants, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and three walks in six innings of work.

    Advice: Fernandez still has the dynamic fastball and power breaking ball, but his command has been uncharacteristically poor in 2016. He now has a walk rate of 4.37 BB/9 despite a career walk rate of just 2.74 BB/9 -- which would be understandable coming off Tommy John surgery if he didn’t walk just 14 batters in 64 2/3 innings in his return to the mound. To put that in perspective, he’s already walked 11 batters in 22 2/3 innings in 2016. With a 4.37 ERA, he’ll look to get back on track on the road versus the Dodgers on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:30 pm
  • Wacha tosses quality start for second win
    Michael Wacha couldn’t strike anyone out, but still cobbled together a quality start with just two earned runs over six innings against the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: Wacha’s strikeout rate dropped to 7.59 K/9 in 2015, which was a concern because it illustrated a downward trend that extended back to his debut season 2013. That has seemingly continued this season. After not whiffing a single batter on Saturday, his strikeout rate now sits at 6.04 K/9. The right-hander still made it work against the Padres, allowing just two earned runs on four hits and four walks, but there are some red flags surrounding his attractive 2.82 ERA. He has a tough matchup looming on the road against the Diamondbacks next Thursday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:37 pm
  • Herrmann doubles, homers in loss
    Chris Herrmann went 2-for-3 with a double, a homer and a walk, driving in four runs in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Herrmann had one hit in 21 plate appearances prior to this outburst. He's now hitting .130/.200/.348 on the young season, which actually mirrors his .146/.214/.272 rather closely from a year ago with the Twins. He's not fantasy relevant. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:14 pm
  • Gallardo placed on DL with shoulder tendinitis
    Orioles placed RHP Yovani Gallardo on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder and bicep tendinitis.

    Advice: Gallardo didn't look right Friday against the Royals, allowing four runs over two innings while hitting just 88 mph on the radar gun. "My shoulder just didn’t feel right," said Gallardo. "To be honest, it was one of those feelings that I’ve never had my whole career." Gallardo failed his physical this spring because of a shoulder issue before the two sides agreed to a revised contract. The Orioles should have a better idea of how much time he'll miss after his MRI on Sunday. Kevin Gausman (shoulder) will occupy a spot in the rotation when he returns from the disabled list early next week. Gallardo's injury means Vance Worley will stay in the rotation a while longer.

  • Saltalamacchia homers again as Tigers lose
    Jarrod Saltalamacchia clobbered his sixth home run of the season as the Tigers were destroyed by the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: Saltalamacchia's solo shot in the fifth inning accounted for the club's only offense against Corey Kluber and company. He has been an extremely prolific run producer in the first month of the season, slashing .282/.364/.821 with six homers and 15 RBI. He's worthy of using in all formats at least until James McCann returns from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:11 pm
  • Gallardo pulled after two innings vs Royals
    Yovani Gallardo only lasted two innings and was torched for four earned runs on five hits and a walk versus the Royals on Friday night.

    Advice: Gallardo had nothing on the mound once again, struggling to top 88 mph with his fastball and unable to consistently throw good strikes. He couldn't strike anyone out before being lifted from the game. His ERA now sits at 7.00, and one has to imagine the Orioles are scratching their heads as to what they can do with Gallardo. The right-hander has $22 million, plus a $2 million buyout, remaining on his contract, which will be hard to swallow in the bullpen. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:56 pm

  • Gallardo leaves game with shoulder discomfort
    Yovani Gallardo is scheduled to visit team doctors in Baltimore after experiencing shoulder discomfort during Friday's start against the Royals.

    Advice: Gallardo lasted just two innings against the Royals on Friday, partly due to ineffectiveness, but also because of the shoulder issue. The team should have an update on his status at some point on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:32 pm

  • Moscot gives up four runs in messy outing
    Jon Moscot tiptoed around three hits and four walks, somehow only surrendering four runs (three earned) in five innings on Friday night against the Cubs.

    Advice: Moscot was shaky with his command on Friday. Things could’ve gotten completely out of hand in the fourth inning because after he gave up a solo homer to Anthony Rizzo, the Cubs had already plated a pair and had runners at second and third with just an out. Moscot managed to wiggle his way out with only one more run crossing the plate. Still, his struggles showed his thin margin for error at the big-league level. He owns a 5.06 ERA and isn’t relevant in any fantasy format. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:12 pm

  • Tim Lincecum nearing showcase for teams
    According to MLB Network's Jon Heyman, free agent Tim Lincecum was recently spotted throwing at the Giants' spring training complex in Arizona.

    Advice: They were probably just letting him use the facilities. Lincecum is nearing a full recovery from September hip surgery and preparing a showcase for teams. There's believed to be interest from 20 different clubs, with the Giants possibly entering the mix if he accepts a relief gig. Lincecum posted a 4.13 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 60/38 K/BB ratio across 76 1/3 innings last season before his hip began acting up. He had a 4.74 ERA in 2014. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:33 am

  • Saltalamacchia homers in third straight game
    Jarrod Saltalamacchia stayed hot Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in a loss to the Royals.

    Advice: He's now homered in three straight contests and four of his last five. He's always had good power, but to say this was expected of a guy who has been with five different organizations since 2010 would be a lie. Fantasy owners will take it, though, and he'll continue to get at-bats with James McCann sidelined -- and maybe even when McCann comes back. The 30-year-old is batting .300/.364/.867 with five homers and 14 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Gennett drives in go-ahead run vs. Twins
    Scooter Gennett drove in the go-ahead run as the Brewers topped the Twins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Milwaukee allowed Minnesota to tie the game 5-5 in the bottom of the eighth inning, but Yadiel Rivera hit a double-turned-triple with one out in the top of the ninth and Gennett followed with an RBI single to recapture the lead. Gennett cooled considerably after a scorching start, but he's currently rocking a .943 OPS over 14 games. When he's batting second, he carries significant fantasy value.
