  • Phil Gosselin homers, drives in four
    Phil Gosselin doubled in a run and launched a three-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Gosselin was hitless in his Diamondbacks debut Monday, but he made up for it and then some with a big showing in his second game with the Snakes. His blast off Miguel Castro in the seventh inning went an estimated 441 feet. It looks like Gosselin could get a decent look at second base this month, making him worth a look in NL-only formats.

  • Holliday (quad) takes BP on field Tuesday
    Matt Holliday (quad) took batting practice on the field with his Cardinals teammates on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's nice to see, but Holliday still needs to ramp up his running before he can be considered close to a return to the Cardinals' active roster. He's been out since late July with a re-tear of his right quad and probably won't be back until mid-September. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:26 pm

  • Javier Baez starts at 2B, bats seventh Tues.
    Javier Baez is starting at second base and batting seventh Tuesday night against the Reds.

    Advice: It'll be his first game at the major league level this season. Baez was a huge disappointment for the Cubs in 2014, but he has continued to post eye-popping numbers this year in the minors and it looks like he'll have a shot at regular playing time down the stretch if he gets off to a hot start. The 22-year-old should be owned in most mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:48 pm

  • White Sox recall Leury Garcia from Triple-A
    White Sox recalled INF/OF Leury Garcia from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Garcia last saw time with the White Sox in late July, when Emilio Bonifacio was sidelined with an oblique injury. He received six at-bats, picking up two hits. For a better sample size, he was hitting .298/.340/.395 with three homers, 31 RBI and 30 steals over 90 games for Triple-A Charlotte. With those wheels, he should be able to find work as a pinch-runner on the expanded roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:26 pm

  • Royals activate OF Alex Gordon from DL

His numbers at the level have been stellar, including a 2.37 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 136/41 K/BB ratio in 132 2/3 innings. The 25-year-old right-hander could represent an intriguing flier for deeper AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:11 pm

    Dodgers acquired OF Chris Heisey from the Blue Jays for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

    Advice: Heisey signed with the Blue Jays last month after the Dodgers released him, but now he's back with the organization.

    Advice: Baez has batted .324/.385/.527 with 13 home runs, 61 RBI, and 17 steals over 70 games in Triple-A this season and has been especially hot of late. Strikeouts were a major issue for him during his time with the Cubs last year, but it looks like he could get the opportunity to take over the second base job.

  • CarGo continues power surge
    Carlos Gonzalez was 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, and three runs scored against the Mets on Friday.

    Advice: CarGo's ridiculous power surge continues. After beginning the year with just four home runs through his first 49 games, he has 25 over his last 64 games. The 29-year-old is batting .272/.333/.539 overall on the year. Rotoworld.com Aug 21, 10:04 pm
