  • Steve Tolleson outrighted to Triple-A

  • Tomas knocks in a pair vs. the Rockies
    Yasmany Tomas smacked a two-run double in Thursday's win against the Rockies.

    Advice: The seventh-inning drive off of Scott Oberg plated A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt and gave the Diamondbacks a 5-1 lead in the eventual 8-1 victory. The Tomas investment looked like an early flop, but he's slashing a tasty .318/.359/.441 through 220 at-bats. If the power comes and the average doesn't suffer because of it, he's going to be a fantasy star. Rotoworld.com

  • Semien corks 7th HR in win vs. the Mariners
    Marcus Semien hit a solo homer in a 4-0 win versus Seattle on Thursday.

    Advice: Semien finished 1-for-3. His big contribution of the night was talking Roenis Elias deep in the fifth inning to give the A's a 3-0 cushion. Semien is slashing .259/.309/.402 and is on pace for 14 homers and 12 steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Solarte ejected from Thursday's game
    Yangervis Solarte was ejected from Thursday's game in the sixth inning for arguing a check-swing call.

    Advice: Solarte went 1-for-3 with a solo homer before home plate umpire Bob Davidson gave him the boot. His solo shot in the second inning snapped a 22-inning scoreless streak for San Diego. Rotoworld.com

  • Carpenter reaches base four times in loss
    Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, two walks, and two runs scored Thursday against the Padres.

    Advice: It was his first multi-hit game since June 18. Carpenter has seen his batting average fall 100 points from .378 to .278 since May 1. Rotoworld.com

  • Sano has infield single in MLB debut
    Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with an infield single in his major league debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano lined out to center field in his first at-bat before striking out swinging in his next two chances. The infield single came in the top of the ninth inning. The Twins plan to use the 22-year-old as their regular designated hitter for the time being, so his power upside is well worth the flier in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Cody Asche goes deep in loss to Brewers
    Cody Asche belted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Brewers on Thursday.

    Advice: Now serving as the Phillies' primary left fielder, Asche had himself quite a night at the dish, going 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and two RBI, and he also drew a walk. For the season, he's slashing .254/.289/.362 with four long balls and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Rockies option Rafael Ynoa to Triple-A
    Rockies optioned INF Rafael Ynoa to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: The 27-year-old utility man was hitting just .225/.250/.270 in 89 at-bats with the big league club. He'll continue to function as organizational depth for the Rockies at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Sano batting sixth in MLB debut Thursday
    Miguel Sano will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth in his MLB debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano was called up Thursday after batting .274/.374/.544 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI over 66 games this season with Double-A Chattanooga. The 22-year-old offers massive power potential from the right side of the plate. He's expected to serve as the primary DH now that Kennys Vargas has been demoted, so he's well worth a flier in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Herrera hits two-run homer and sacrifice fly
    Jonathan Herrera went 1-for-2 with a homer and three RBI in Thursday afternoon's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Herrera sacrificed in a run in the second inning, then took Mets starter Jacob deGrom deep for a two-run homer in the sixth to account for his three RBI on the day. It was his first long ball of the season. Over 70 at-bats, he's hitting .229/.250/.314, numbers that shouldn't put him near any fantasy radars. Rotoworld.com

  • Aviles launches go-ahead homer in 10th
    Mike Aviles hit a go-ahead solo home run in the 10th inning on Thursday, helping to propel the Indians to a 5-4 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Aviles homered off of Xavier Cedeno to lead off the 10th inning. His run would stand as the difference in the eventual 5-4 win. Across 153 at-bats, the veteran infielder has smacked four home runs and is hitting .256/.312/.365. Aviles is who he is as a player and there's no fantasy upside here. Rotoworld.com

  • Rojas triples, singles twice in win over SF
    Miguel Rojas went 3-for-4 with a triple in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Rojas was called up in late June to act as a utility bat. The three hits he recorded on Thursday were his first three of the season. Playing for Triple-A New Orleans prior to the call-up, he hit .302/.345/.431 over 64 games. He doesn't figure to see enough significant at-bats to become fantasy relevant. Rotoworld.com

  • Twins officially promote prospect Miguel Sano
    Twins recalled INF Miguel Sano from Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Sano will take over as the Twins' regular designated hitter in Thursday's series opener against the Royals. The 22-year-old was sporting a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level and he's a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues for his massive power potential.

  • Kris Bryant getting day off Thursday vs. NYM
    Kris Bryant is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Mets.

    Advice: Bryant struck out in three of his five trips to the plate on Wednesday and will now take a day of mental and physical rest. Jonathan Herrera is starting at third base and batting seventh versus Mets righty Jacob deGrom. Rotoworld.com

  • Hill socks solo homer in loss to Dodgers
    Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Hill connected for his fourth homer of the season when he launched a Brett Anderson offering into the seats in the sixth inning. He also chipped in with a sacrifice fly in the eighth to push his overall RBI total for the season to an even 20. Hill is a possible candidate for trade as we enter July, though his .224/.284/.333 slashline makes one wonder what, if anything, the Diamondbacks could get in return for the 33-year-old infielder.

  • Twins calling up top prospect Miguel Sano
    MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins are calling up prospect Miguel Sano.

    Advice: Kennys Vargas has already been optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a roster spot. Sano, 22, boasts a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level. He's primarily played third base in the minors, but look for the Twins to use him as their everyday designated hitter. Sano has been a consensus top-20 prospect for going on four years and is worth a shot in every mixed fantasy league for his power potential. Rotoworld.com

  • Steve Tolleson activated, then DFA'd
    Blue Jays activated INF Steve Tolleson from the 15-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

    Advice: Tolleson had been out since late May with a strained groin. He seems likely to clear waivers and remain in the organization. Rotoworld.com

  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryant scores lone run in win over Mets
    Kris Bryant went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: The run was the only one either team would score in the game. Even after missing the season's first two weeks, Bryant's 40 walks are fifth-most in the National League. The 23-year-old is hitting .275/.381/.466 in his rookie year. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Carpenter out of Tuesday's lineup
    Matt Carpenter is out of Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

    Advice: Chris Sale is on the hill for the White Sox, so it's not a bad time to give Carpenter a bit of a breather. Mark Reynolds will start at third base while Xavier Scruggs plays first. Rotoworld.com

  • Tomas homers as D'Backs top the Dodgers
    Yasmany Tomas homered and walked in five trips to the plate Monday as the Diamondbacks took down the Dodgers.

    Advice: Tomas lined a two-run home run to left field in the sixth inning off of Yimi Garcia. It barely made it over the fence and was reviewed for fan interference, but was ultimately upheld. The power hasn't quite been there as often as the D'Backs would have liked, but Tomas has otherwise done a fine job at the plate in his first year in the majors, batting .314/.357/.440 with four home runs and 29 RBI.

    Yankees optioned INF Gregorio Petit to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Petit has hit just .184/.238/.263 over 18 games with the Bombers this season. He should be back up again at some point. Rotoworld.com

  • Marlins recall Miguel Rojas from Triple-A
    Marlins recalled INF Miguel Rojas from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: The 26-year-old infielder has the ability to play three different positions in the infield and will provide depth on the bench for the Marlins. He was hitting .302/.345/.431 with three homers and 23 RBI in 64 games at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryant (illness) singles, has sac fly vs. STL
    Kris Bryant (illness) went 1-for-4 with a single and a sacrifice fly in his return to action Friday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Bryant made an early exit from Thursday's game due to flu-like symptoms, but it shouldn't be an issue moving forward. The rookie sensation is batting .277 with 10 home runs and an .850 OPS through his first 64 games in the majors. Rotoworld.com

    Kris Bryant (illness) is back in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Bryan had to make an early exit Thursday while battling the flu, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go Friday. The rookie slugger sports a .278/.383/.474 batting line with 10 homers and 42 RBI across 63 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryant departs game with flu-like symptoms
    Kris Bryant left Thursday's series finale against the Dodgers with flu-like symptoms.

    Advice: Bryant struck out in his first at-bat and was lifted before the top of the third inning, with Jonathan Herrera taking over at third base, Chris Coghlan moving to second base, Chris Denorfia shifting to left field, and Matt Szczur taking over in center. Bryant can be considered day-to-day. This doesn't sound like a big deal. Rotoworld.com

    Yankees recalled INF Gregorio Petit from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Petit has batted just .200/.256/.286 with 13 strikeouts in 35 at-bats this season with the Yankees. The 30-year-old utility infielder is not a fantasy-relevant player. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Carpenter (back) tallies RBI in return
    Matt Carpenter (back) hit an RBI single in his return to the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his only hit in four at-bats, and he got gunned down at second base trying to stretch the single into a double. Carpenter missed Tuesday's series opener with tightness around the middle of his back. He should start at third base again on Thursday night. Rotoworld.com

  • Yasmany Tomas goes 4-for-5 in victory
    Yasmany Tomas had a career-high four hits in five at-bats Wednesday as the Diamondbacks came back to beat the Rockies 8-7.

    Advice: Tomas singled in a run as part of the three-run rally in the ninth. He also had a double earlier in the game. Just when it looked like his average was finally starting to tumble some, he's back up to .328 now. That's even though he's sporting a 43/9 K/BB ratio in 189 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Tomas (illness) back in D'Backs lineup Wed.
    Yasmany Tomas (illness) is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Wednesday night in Denver.

    Advice: Tomas had to be scratched from Arizona's lineup Tuesday due to altitude sickness. He's obviously better-acclimated now. The 24-year-old Cuban has hit .315/.351/.429 with three home runs and 25 RBI through his first 53 games at the major league level. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:50 pm
  • Yasmany Tomas scratched due to illness
    Yasmany Tomas was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to illness.

    Advice: Tomas is having a little trouble with altitude sickness in Denver. It's a bummer for Tomas' fantasy owners, as they were surely looking forward to a matchup against Kyle Kendrick at Coors Field. Danny Dorn has taken his spot in right field. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:56 pm
  • Matt Carpenter has some mid-back tightness
    Matt Carpenter is dealing with some mid-back tightness.

    Advice: That's part of the reason Carpenter is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup on Tuesday night in Miami, though manager Mike Matheny said he's been meaning to get the third baseman a day off anyway. It's not a serious issue. Mark Reynolds is at first base and Xavier Scruggs is at first base Tuesday versus the Marlins. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:55 pm
  • Matt Carpenter not in Tuesday's lineup
    Matt Carpenter is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins.

    Advice: The Cardinals just had a scheduled off-day on Monday, but perhaps Carpenter is just getting another day of rest. Mark Reynolds will fill in at third base while Xavier Scruggs will play first. Rotoworld.com
