  • Latos allows two runs in five innings vs NYM
    Mat Latos was saddled with the loss on Saturday after allowing two runs over five innings to the Mets.

    Advice: This was Latos' most routine start of the year. In his first outing, the Braves rocked him for seven runs in the first inning, and in his second outing, Mother Nature handed him a 40-minute rain delay after four frames, from which Latos did not return. On Saturday, he finally managed to make it past the fourth inning. Latos struck out five, walked one and scattered six hits against the Mets. Other than a Juan Lagares RBI single in the second inning and a Travis d'Arnaurd solo home run in the third, Latos pitched cleanly. This was definitely a step in the right direction for the pitcher, who spoke of mechanical issues in the spring. Until he's able to show some kind of consistency, though, it might be best to avoid him in mixed leagues. He'll look to continue on the uptrend when he faces the Nationals in his next start.

  • Reddick's home run leads to fireworks vs. KC
    Josh Reddick hit his first home run of the season in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Royals.

    Advice: Reddick launched a three-run shot off Yordano Ventura in the fourth inning. Next batter Brett Lawrie paid the bill, as Ventura plunked him and was ejected. Lawrie's hard slide into Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar on Friday set all of this off. Extracurricular activity aside, Reddick finished the game 2-for-4. He had been on the shelf for more than a month as he recovered from an oblique injury. Reddick hit 12 home runs in his 2013 and 2014 campaigns, both of which were shortened by injuries. When healthy, he's a potential 20-plus home run player. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Joyce (foot) makes early exit Saturday
    Matt Joyce (foot) departed early from Saturday night's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Joyce made it to the top of the seventh inning, but Efren Navarro was in left field when the bottom of the seventh began. Joyce fouled a ball off his right foot Wednesday and is dealing with some lingering soreness. He should ultimately be fine. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Davis slugs second home run of year
    Chris Davis slugged his second home run of the season Saturday in the Orioles' win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: It was a two-run opposite field shot that sailed over the Green Monster. Davis also singled, though he struck out in his three other plate appearances. The 29-year-old is batting .256/.310/.487 with seven RBI and 18 strikeouts in 10 games this season for the O's. Rotoworld.com

  • Tillman goes five-plus strong in win over Sox
    Chris Tillman hurled 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday as the Orioles topped the Red Sox.

    Advice: It was a nice bounceback from his last start, in which he he gave up seven runs -- three earned -- to the Blue Jays and didn't make it out of the third inning. Tillman struck out five Red Sox and walked two on Saturday afternoon at Fenway Park, moving to 2-1 on the season with a 5.52 ERA, 1.70 WHIP, and 10/8 K/BB ratio in 14 2/3 innings. He will face the Blue Jays on the road next time out. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmermann takes loss against Phillies
    Jordan Zimmermann gave up four runs (two earned) over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

    Advice: Zimmermann didn't get any help from his defense, namely from Ian Desmond, but he wasn't particularly sharp either. He gave up four hits and four walks while striking out three batters. It's worth noting that he didn't walk more than three batters in any of his 32 starts last season. After back-to-back uncharacteristic outings, he'll look to bounce back against the Marlins next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond has three hits in loss to Phils
    Ian Desmond went 3-for-5 in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: All three hits were singles. Desmond now has six hits in his last nine at-bats and has pulled his batting average up from .211 to .298. While he's swinging a hot bat right now, he continues to struggle miserably in the field. He committed his eighth error of the season Saturday and had another misplay on a potential double play ball.

  • Dodgers outright David Huff to AAA OKC
    Dodgers sent LHP David Huff outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

  • Alcides Escobar (knee) not starting Saturday
    Alcides Escobar (knee) is not in the Royals starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Escobar strained his knee Friday when Oakland's Brett Lawrie took him out with a hard slide at second base. Christian Colon will fill in at shortstop. Escobar was off to a good start before the injury, hitting .326 with seven runs and five RBI. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Plouffe not in Twins lineup Saturday
    Trevor Plouffe is not in the Twins starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Eduardo Nunez is getting the start in his place at third base and will bat eighth for the Twins against Danny Salazar and the Indians. Plouffe should return to his place at the hot corner for Sunday's series finale. Rotoworld.com

  • Jaime Garcia (shoulder) still six weeks away
    Jaime Garcia (shoulder) faced live hitters for the first time on Friday but is still at least six weeks away from a potential return to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak indicated that Garcia's goal is to come back as a starting pitcher, but likened his progress to this point as being at the beginning of spring training. The Cardinals will obviously play things cautiously in his recovery, so fantasy owners shouldn't count on anything out of the left-hander until around midseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Sandoval reaches twice in return to lineup
    Pablo Sandoval (foot) went 1-for-2 and drew a walk in his return to the Red Sox lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Sandoval had been sidelined since leaving Tuesday's game with a bruised left foot after being drilled by a pitch. He's off to a terrific start to his Red Sox career, hitting .316/.409/.316 in the early going. Rotoworld.com

  • Gardner appears as pinch runner on Friday
    Brett Gardner (wrist) appeared as a pinch runner in Friday's victory over the Rays.

    Advice: He has been nursing a bone bruise in his right wrist and is expected to return to the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday. He certainly did his job on Friday after pinch-running for Carlos Beltran, Gardner swiped second base and scored the go-ahead run on an RBI single by Alex Rodriguez. Rotoworld.com

  • Neftali Feliz picks up save against Mariners
    Neftali Feliz earned his second save in as many chances Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Feliz hasn't really inspired much confidence since the spring, but he's always owned the Mariners. This makes 27 scoreless innings against the team in one start and 21 relief appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Plouffe launches walk-off HR vs. Indians
    Trevor Plouffe delivered a walk-off solo homer in a 3-2 win over the Indians in 11 innings on Friday night.

    Advice: How's that for a slump-buster? Plouffe came into Friday's action hitting .133 and went hitless over his first four at-bats before taking Bryan Shaw deep to leadoff the bottom of the 11th and send the Target Field fans home happy. The 28-year-old hasn't been able to replicate the power production he had in 2012, but he's capable of being a useful corner infielder in deeper mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brantley (back) notches two hits in return
    Michael Brantley (back) went 2-for-5 in his return to the lineup Friday.

    Advice: Both hits were singles. Brantley, who served as the DH on Friday, missed the previous four games due to a back injury. The issue has already flared up a couple of times since spring training, so he might not be out of the woods yet. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Escobar out with knee injury after hard slide
    Alcides Escobar was removed from Friday's game against the Athletics with a mild left knee strain after being taken out by a hard slide at second base by Brett Lawrie.

    Advice: The play led to a benches-clearing altercation between the two clubs, as Lawrie slid quite a bit past the base on a ball that the Royals weren't going to be able to turn over for a double play. Luckily, he was able to avoid significant injury and the Royals are listing him as day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:21 pm
  • Desmond has three hits against Phillies
    Ian Desmond went 3-for-4 with two runs scored Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: All three hits were singles. Desmond has eight hits in 16 at-bats over the past four games, so he's starting to come around with the bat. As for the glove, not so good. He committed his seventh error of the season on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Joyce dealing with sore right foot
    Matt Joyce is currently dealing with a sore right foot, which is why he's serving as the team's designated hitter on Friday.

    Advice: Joyce fouled a ball off his foot on Thursday and it's still a bit sore, so manager Mike Scioscia opted to give him a night off defensively. It's a blow to C.J. Cron who gets bumped to the bench to let Joyce serve as the designated hitter. Rotoworld.com

  • Gardner (wrist) expects to return on Saturday
    Brett Gardner (wrist) expects to return to the Yankees' lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: There's an outside shot that he could even talk his way into Friday's lineup, as Gardner is taking full batting practice. But, it sounds like manager Joe Girardi wants to give him one more day before throwing him back out there Saturday. Chris Young will handle left field in Gardner's place Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:02 pm
  • Brantley (back) returns to Indians' lineup
    Michael Brantley (back) is back in the Indians' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's in the designated hitter spot rather than in left field, but Brantley's fantasy owners will take it. The outfielder had played just once over the previous 10 days due to a back injury that has lingered since spring training. David Murphy is in left field. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:39 pm
  • Brett Gardner (wrist) still sitting out Fri.
    Brett Gardner (wrist) remained out of the Yankees' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Gardner is nursing a bone bruise in his right wrist. The Yankees had been hoping he was feeling well enough to give it a go Friday, but obviously that's not the case. Chris Young will handle left field in Gardner's place Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:05 pm
  • MRI confirms bruised wrist for Brett Gardner
    An MRI taken Thursday on Brett Gardner's right wrist confirmed that he has a bone bruise.

    Advice: But there's no structural damage, so he should still be on track to rejoin the Yankees' starting lineup this weekend. Gardner got hit in the wrist by a pitch in the first inning of Monday's game against the Orioles. Chris Young has been filling in. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond cranks first homer, Nats top Sox
    Ian Desmond cranked his first home run of the season Wednesday in the Nationals' defeat of the Red Sox.

    Advice: It was a third-inning solo shot off Red Sox starter Wade Miley that opened a six-run frame for the visiting Nats. Desmond is off to a somewhat sluggish start in his contract year, batting just .206/.270/.382 in 34 at-bats after Wednesday's 1-for-4 performance. Rotoworld.com

  • Gardner (wrist) out of NYY lineup again Wed.
    Brett Gardner (wrist) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Chris Young will start in left field against the Orioles. X-rays taken Monday on Gardner's right wrist came back negative, but he still has some soreness and probably won't return to action until the weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:47 pm
  • Sandoval (foot) not in Wednesday's lineup
    Pablo Sandoval (foot) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Tests on Sandoval's bruised left foot came back negative, but it's not a surprise to see him sitting with Boston having a day game. He's day-to-day. Brock Holt is filling in at third base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:36 am
  • Huff allows 4 runs in 4 frames in no-decision
    David Huff took a no-decision on Tuesday, yielding four runs in four innings of work against the Mariners.

    Advice: The Mariners jumped on Huff immediately with back-to-back home runs in the first inning. Robinson Cano hit a two-run blast and Cruz, of course, went solo. Overall, the lefty gave up seven hits, walked one, and struck out two. Huff could get another start the next trip through the rotation. If he does, it'll be against the Giants on the road. If he doesn't, Scott Baker is likely to get the nod. Rotoworld.com

    Brett Gardner (wrist) hoping to try and swing a bat on Wednesday.

    Advice: X-rays on Gardner's right wrist came back negative, but the outfielder admitted Tuesday that he is still "pretty sore." The Yankees don't expect him to return to the lineup until at least Friday, and it sounds like it might take a bit longer than that. Rotoworld.com

  • Pablo Sandoval diagnosed with bruised foot
    Pablo Sandoval has been diagnosed with a bruised left foot.

  • Gardner (wrist) unlikely to start before Fri.
    Brett Gardner (wrist) is not expected to return to the lineup until at least Friday.

    Advice: It's possible he could be available off the bench before then. Gardner had to leave Monday's game after being hit on the right wrist by a pitch, but X-rays came back clean. "He's just sore," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "I've got to see what his availability is for me tonight, whether it's pinch-running and playing defense. I don't think he'll be able to hit, but we'll see." Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:34 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval exits after being hit on foot
    Pablo Sandoval left Tuesday's game against the Nationals after being hit on the left foot by a pitch.

    Advice: Sandoval took a Stephen Strasburg curveball to the foot in the third inning. He stayed in the game for a while, but the foot must have stiffened up on him because he exited in the sixth. The Red Sox should have more on Sandoval's status later Tuesday. Hanley Ramirez moved in from left field to take Sandoval's spot at third base. Rotoworld.com

  • Indians hope Brantley (back) can play Friday
    The Indians are hoping that Michael Brantley (back) will be ready to return to the lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Brantley has played just once over the last eight days due to a back injury. He's feeling better, but the Indians are off on Thursday so they'll hold the outfielder back and hope he's ready to go on Friday. "I think he's really trending in a good way," manager Terry Francona said on Tuesday. "If you see him playing tomorrow, he's perfect. Because, with the day off [Thursday], we want to make sure we get him going in the right direction and keep him going in the right direction." Rotoworld.com

  • Dodgers call up David Huff for Tues. start
    Dodgers purchased the contract of LHP David Huff from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Huff will start for the Dodgers on Tuesday night versus the Mariners. He only went three innings in his first appearance this season at Triple-A, so the left-hander figures to be on a pitch count of some sort in his spot start for Los Angeles. He was a poor fantasy bet anyway against the M's. Rotoworld.com

  • Brantley (back) has been examined extensively
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Michael Brantley's back "has been looked at extensively."

    Advice: Brantley has been checked out by the Indians' team doctors and an outside specialist since feeling a "stabbing" pain in his back last Friday. And the injury seems to be nothing more than soreness. He is out of the Indians' starting lineup again on Tuesday night, but there's a chance he could return Wednesday. Cleveland is off on Thursday.

    Brett Gardner (wrist) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

    Advice: Gardner was hit in the right wrist with a pitch Monday, but X-rays came back negative. He's considered day-to-day right now. Chris Young will start in his place. Here's the full lineup against the Orioles: Jacoby Ellsbury CF, Chase Headley 3B, Carlos Beltran RF, Mark Teixeira 1B, Brian McCann C, Garrett Jones DH, Young LF, Stephen Drew 2B, Didi Gregorius SS.

    Michael Brantley (back) is not in the Indians' lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Brantley hasn't played since he reported feeling a "stabbing" pain in his back during Friday's game. He was scheduled to take batting practice Tuesday, so we should know more about his status soon. Jerry Sands is taking his place in left field Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com

  • Gardner (wrist) hopes to not miss much time
    Brett Gardner (wrist) said after Monday's game that he hopes to not miss much time.

    Advice: Gardner was hit in the right wrist with a pitch in the first inning and was eventually lifted for a pinch-hitter (Stephen Drew, who hit a go-ahead grand slam) in the seventh. X-rays came back negative, but there should be more clarity on his status Tuesday. "It's kind of wait and see, just a day-to-day thing," said Gardner. "I'm just glad that the X-rays look good. We've got a wrap on there for tonight, keep the swelling down, and hopefully I feel good tomorrow." Rotoworld.com

  • Latos lasts only four innings in loss to ATL
    Mat Latos took the loss on Monday, allowing three runs (two earned) in four innings versus the Braves.

    Advice: Latos' night was interrupted by rain, which was unfortunate for the right-hander. He allowed one run in the fourth inning on a wild pitch, then sat down for 40 minutes. He came back out for the fifth inning after a 40-minute delay, gave up a single and a double, and then was replaced by reliever Sam Dyson, who gave up consecutive RBI singles. Latos, overall, yielded five hits and three walks while striking out five. It's hard to start a season off any worse than Latos has. He'll try to turn things around in his next start against the Mets at Citi Field. Rotoworld.com

  • X-rays on Brett Gardner's wrist are negative
    X-rays on Brett Gardner's right wrist came back negative.

    Advice: Gardner was hit on the wrist by a pitch in the first inning Monday and eventually taken out in the seventh. He managed to avoid breaking any bones, though, and can probably safely be called day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Escobar has two hits and two RBI in win
    Alcides Escobar had two hits, two RBI, and a run scored in a win over the Twins on Monday.

    Advice: Escobar has hit safely in all seven games this season and is batting .367 (11-for-30) with five RBI and seven runs scored. The 28-year-old has just 21 home runs in 831 major league games, so he's not going to provide much power, but he has averaged 28 stolen bases over the past four seasons and should score plenty of runs at the top of this lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:29 pm
  • Jordan Zimmermann pummeled by Red Sox
    Jordan Zimmermann had a rare clunker Monday, getting blasted for eight runs -- seven earned -- over just 2 1/3 frames in a loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Usually possessing pinpoint command, Zimmermann had zero of it in this one from the get-go, allowing nine hits, walking one and hitting a pair of batters without recording a strikeout. The right-hander looked sharp in his first outing of the season, so we'll just have to chalk this one up to a "one of those days" starts. He'll have a good chance to rebound this weekend versus the Phillies. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:12 pm
  • Jaime Garcia (shoulder) throwing off mound
    Jaime Garcia (shoulder) has resumed throwing off a mound.

    Advice: He threw a bullpen session Sunday and will throw another one Wednesday. Assuming he recovers well, he'll then throw live batting practice on Friday. Garcia had a setback with his pitching shoulder at the end of spring training, but the Cardinals consider it a stamina issue more than anything else, so the goal is for the lefty to get stretched out without tiring. "As you saw in spring training, when Jaime was throwing, he seemed to do very well when he was in that 30-to-40 pitch range," general manager John Mozeliak said. "But when that started to expand, that's when things got a little more difficult for him. … He could certainly be a long man. But I think his goal is still to get back and be a starter, and I think that's how he wants us to push him." Rotoworld.com

  • David Huff to start Tuesday vs. Mariners
    David Huff will start on Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Scott Baker had been considered the favorite to get the start, but the Dodgers have opted for Huff instead. The lefty went just three relief innings in his lone Triple-A appearance this season, so he figures to be on a limited pitch count. The Dodgers will make an official roster move with Huff on Tuesday.

    Michael Brantley (back) will take batting practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: Brantley felt a "stabbing" pain in his back during Friday's game against the Tigers. He did not play on Saturday or Sunday. According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Indians aren't going to push the outfielder back into the lineup until he is at 100%. With a lefty (John Danks) on the mound on Wednesday and an off-day on Thursday, a return against the Twins this weekend seems most likely. Rotoworld.com

  • Tillman hammered by the Jays in Sunday's loss
    Chris Tillman was hit hard by the Blue Jays in Sunday's start, giving up seven runs (three earned) in 2 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Dalton Pompey greeted Tillman rudely with a first-inning two-run home run. Kevin Pillar hit a solo homer in the second, and then the Jays struck for four unearned runs in the third inning thanks to a Travis Snider fielding error. Overall, Tillman allowed six hits and three walks while striking out only one. Tillman will try to rebound in his next start over the weekend in Boston against the Red Sox. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Brantley (back) is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Brantley felt a "stabbing" pain in his back late during Friday's game and has now sat out two straight days. The Indians are off Monday, so he'll get three days of rest and hope to be back out there Tuesday. Brantley reported improvement with his back Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Davis launches solo home run against Jays
    Chris Davis hit his first home run of the season against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    Advice: Davis smacked the solo shot off Aaron Sanchez in the first inning. He finished the game 2-for-4 with the home run and a single, plus a strikeout. The slugger missed the Orioles' opener serving the final game of a 25-game suspension for amphetamine use, but he looks no worse for the wear. The Orioles are hoping that Davis can bounce back from a 2014 campaign in which he hit just .196/.300/.404. Rotoworld.com

  • Brantley had pain in back Friday, out on Sat.
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Saturday that Michael Brantley felt a "stabbing" pain in his back late during Friday's game against the Tigers.

    Advice: Francona admitted that he probably shouldn't have played Brantley on Friday. The outfielder is resting on Saturday and could get the day off on Sunday as well. A trip to the disabled list remains a possibility. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Brantley not in lineup on Saturday
    Michael Brantley (back) is not in the Indians starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Tigers.

    Advice: Brantley returned to the lineup on Friday after missing the previous two games due to back stiffness. Manager Terry Francona is opting to play things cautiously with him, and getting an extra day of rest against opposing southpaw David Price isn't a terrible idea. Expect him to return on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Reddick expected to rejoin A's Sunday
    Josh Reddick (oblique) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

    Advice: Initially the A's had targeted a Saturday turn, but with the club squaring off against southpaw J.A. Happ, they'll give Reddick an extra day. His return should cut into the playing time of Mark Canha, and perhaps Marcus Semien as Ben Zobrist will be free to be utilized all over the infield. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Brantley (back) is back in the Indians' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's back in left field and in his familiar No. 3 spot in the batting order against Alfredo Simon and the Tigers. Brantley missed the last two games with lower back stiffness, an ailment that bothered him for much of spring training, as well. He's obviously feeling well enough to give it a go Friday, though.

  • Joyce back in Angels' lineup, playing DH
    Matt Joyce is in the Angels' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Joyce had Tuesday off against a tough lefty but he's back in there a day later, although at designated hitter. Joyce is batting cleanup for the Halos. With Josh Hamilton sidelined Joyce will certainly see the lion's share of playing time, and if he continues to hit in a prime lineup spot he's definitely mixed league worthy when he's starting.

    Advice: Feliz got Ben Zobrist to ground out, Billy Butler to line out, and Brett Lawrie to strike out for his first save of 2015. Shortstop Elvis Andrus had committed a two-out error on an Ike Davis grounder to extend the inning, but it didn't bother Feliz. Feliz was strong after joining the Rangers' bullpen late last season, recording a 1.99 ERA with 13 saves and a 21/11 K/BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
