  • Schoop collects two hits and homers vs LAA
    Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: The blast was Schoop's eighth of the year and put him up to 26 RBI. Despite the homer, the second baseman is batting just .220/.256/.338 this season and doesn't merit serious fantasy consideration. Rotoworld.com

  • Machado gets anti-inflammatory injection
    Manny Machado (back) received an anti-inflammatory injection after Tuesday's game.

    Advice: Machado was a late scratch Tuesday after his lower back tightened up on him. He's never had back issues before and will be re-evaluated Wednesday to see how much progress he's made. Consider the third baseman day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera goes 2-for-4 in loss to Diamondbacks
    Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 on Tuesday, including an RBI single in the first.

    Advice: The RBI knock gave Cabrera 77 batted in on the year. Ho hum. Death, taxes, Miguel Cabrera knocking in runs on a nightly basis. What are "things that are a given," Alex? While Mike Trout seems destined for the AL MVP award this year, Cabrera continues to be consistently spectacular. He's slashing .313/.369/.531. Rotoworld.com

  • Arenado hits first homer since finger injury
    Nolan Arenado hit a two-run home run, his first homer since breaking his left middle finger on May 23, in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Since his return to the lineup on July 3, Arenado had gone 14 games without a homer before Tuesday's blast in the third inning. The homer, his seventh overall, was his only hit in four at-bats. The finger injury derailed what appeared to be the makings of a breakout offensive year for the 23-year-old, but Arenado is still hitting .282/.305/.456 with plenty of time to add to those numbers over the next two months.

  • Rendon has three hits, scores twice vs. Rox
    Anthony Rendon finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Rendon's three-hit effort broke a 1-for-19 slump he'd endured to start the second half. His two runs scored gives him 71 runs on the season, second-most in the National League. The 24-year-old is batting .279/.333/.473 with 13 home runs and 53 RBI with just over two months to play. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) to have MRI
    Ryan Zimmerman will undergo an MRI after leaving Tuesday's game against the Rockies with a strained right hamstring.

    Advice: It's looking like Zimmerman is headed to the disabled list, but the Nationals won't know for sure until the test results come back. It would be his second trip to the DL this season, as he missed nearly two months with a fractured thumb. The Nats would go back to Anthony Rendon at third base and Danny Espinosa at second if Zimmerman is on the shelf for a while. Rotoworld.com

  • Moustakas' two homers help Royals down ChiSox
    Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in the Royals' 7-1 win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: When it rains, it pours for Moustakas -- he'd hit just two home runs since June 21 and he hadn't driven in a run in his past eight games prior to Tuesday's outburst. The homers give Moustakas 12 home runs on the season to go with a .198/.262/.391 line. Games like Tuesday's remind of his potential, but the third baseman is just too inconsistent to be relied upon in fantasy realms. Rotoworld.com

  • Kelly Johnson nursing groin injury
    Kelly Johnson will undergo an MRI after leaving Tuesday's game against the Rangers with a groin injury.

    Advice: It's been a bad 24 hours for Johnson, as the groin ailment was preceded by the Yankees acquiring Chase Headley to take over at third base. The Bombers should have an update on Johnson's condition on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Olt optioned to Triple-A
    Cubs optioned 3B Mike Olt to Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: The last straw was Olt going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Tuesday, dropping his season line to .139/.222/.353 and his K/BB ratio to 84/19. Olt obviously has plus raw power, but he has a lot of holes in his swing and could struggle to carve out a long-term niche on a team with a boatload of position prospects on the way. Rotoworld.com

  • Headley delivers walk-off hit in Yanks debut
    Chase Headley made his Yankees debut in style, delivering a walk-off single in the 14th inning against the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Headley took his first at-bat as a Yankee in the eighth inning and struck out. He stayed in the game, grounding out twice in his next two at-bats before driving in Brian Roberts with his 14th-inning single. The Yankees acquired Headley earlier in the day. Overall, he is slashing .230/.296/.353 with seven home runs and 45 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Santana's three XBH lead Tribe past Twins
    Carlos Santana went 4-for-5 with a home run and nine total bases as the Indians cruised past the Twins 8-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Santana had just three extra-base hits in his previous nine games, but the 28-year-old added two doubles to go with his 15th home run of the year. If anything, he deserved to have an even better night from a statistical standpoint -- the homer came with nobody on, and his other three hits drove in just one run combined. The four-hit evening raised his season line to .214/.353/.401. Rotoworld.com

  • Manny Machado scratched with back tightness
    Manny Machado was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with lower back tightness.

    Advice: It's probably safe to call him day-to-day, but the Orioles don't want to take any chances with their stud young third baseman. Machado was replaced at third base by Ryan Flaherty. Rotoworld.com

  • Alberto Callaspo (hamstring) takes BP
    Alberto Callaspo (hamstring) took a successful round of batting practice Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's done so since landing on the DL. Callaspo has also done some running, though he's yet to run the bases. He's expected to be activated in the middle of next week if all goes well. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs activate Bonifacio from 15-day DL
    Cubs activated INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Darwin Barney has been designated for assignment in a corresponding roster move. Bonifacio has been sidelined since mid-June with a strained right oblique and will return to a .261/.307/.340 batting line to go along with 13 steals and 29 runs scored over 61 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Yankees officially acquire 3B Chase Headley
    Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations from the Padres for INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula.

    Advice: The deal is now official. Headley's stock has plummeted since his breakout season in 2012, but he's a worthwhile gamble for the Yankees given their current options at third base. The 30-year-old has swung the bat better of late and has good road numbers for his career, so it would be no surprise if he finishes his walk year on a high note. Rotoworld.com

  • Padres acquire Solarte in Headley deal
    Padres acquired INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula from the Yankees for 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations.

    Advice: The Yankees picked Solarte up for nothing over the winter and managed to turn him into an upgrade at third base. Pretty nice work by GM Brian Cashman. For San Diego, this was mostly about getting anything for Headley, who will be a free agent after the season. A qualifying offer wasn't a realistic option, as he likely would have accepted a one-year deal in the range of $15 million. Solarte could see some time at third base down the stretch in San Diego, but his days of fantasy relevancy are likely already behind him. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Yankees acquire Headley from Padres
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres.

    Advice: Neither team has confirmed the deal, but the Yankees will send infielder Yangervis Solarte and prospect right-hander right-hander Rafael De Paula to the Padres. New York will also receive $1 million from San Diego to help cover part of the nearly $4 million remaining on Headley's contract for this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bloomquist's 3 hits leads Mariners to victory
    Willie Bloomquist went 3-for-5 with a steal, two runs scored, and an RBI double in a win over the Mets on Monday.

    Advice: Somebody out there will wake up tomorrow morning grinning ear-to-ear that Bloomquist was in his AL-only fantasy lineup tonight. Chances are, that isn't you. In truth, nobody could have seen a big night coming from the veteran utilityman. This was Bloomquist's first steal of the season, his first three-hit game of the year, and the double represented his first extra-base hit since June 22. Willie Bloomquist will now return to being Willie Bloomquist. Rotoworld.com

  • Alberto Callaspo could return next week
    Alberto Callaspo (hamstring) thinks he'll be ready for activation just a couple days after he's eligible next Sunday.

    Advice: It's possible that Callaspo will play a few rehab games before the A's activate him. The veteran infielder has been on the shelf since mid-July with a strained right hamstring. Rotoworld.com

  • Tigers lose despite Cabrera's three hits
    Miguel Cabrera had a nice day at the plate as the Tigers dropped the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Indians, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

    Advice: He and Austin Jackson were the only two hitters in the Tigers order who could figure out Corey Kluber on this one, accounting for five of the team's seven total hits. With the three-hit effort, Cabrera is now hitting .313/.370/.538 on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Manny Machado goes 2-for-4, homers
    Manny Machado went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the A's.

    Advice: It's nice to see the All-Star break didn't half Machado's homer binge; he now has six in 13 games after hitting a total of four in his first 50. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera swipes base in loss to Indians
    Days after refuting a report that his surgically-repaired groin was still bothering him, Miguel Cabrera swiped his first base of the season in Friday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: While the timing is probably just coincidental, there's a chance that Cabrera just wanted to show off how spry he could be. With his 2-for-4 effort Friday, he's now hitting .308/.366/.533 on the season to go along with 14 homers and a league-leading 75 RBI. Rotoworld.com
