  • Joey Butler hits solo homer in win over O's
    Joey Butler went 2-for-3 with a solo homer in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Butler smacked his solo shot off of Wei-Yin Chen in the third inning. At the time, it pushed the score to 3-0 Rays. That's all a dominant Erasmo Ramirez would need, as the Rays would win by that final score. Butler's hitting .309/.347/.500 over 68 at-bats, plus three homers, eight RBI and eight runs scored. With Desmond Jennings on the shelf, it's likely that Butler will continue to see plate appearances, though there's no reason to expect major production.

  • Pillar hits solo homer against Twins
    Kevin Pillar hit a solo homer and drew a walk Saturday against the Twins.

    Advice: It was his second home run of the season and his first since way back on April 12. Pillar is hitting just .184 this month, but he has now hit safely in three straight games. Perhaps he's finally snapping out of it.

  • Khris Davis leaves game with knee soreness
    Khris Davis left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with left knee soreness.

    Advice: Davis swung awkwardly on a strikeout in his first at-bat and was replaced by Gerardo Parra in left field the following inning. It's bad timing for fantasy owners as Davis had six hits in his previous ten at-bats before getting hurt.

  • Dodgers demote OF Heisey
    Dodgers optioned outfielder Chris Heisey to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Heisey has gone 1-for-9 with five walks in three stints with the Dodgers this season. That's good for an unusual .111/.429/.111 line.

  • Bryce Harper scratched from lineup
    Bryce Harper was scratched from Saturday's lineup after being hit in the back by a pitch during Friday's game.

  • Royals activate Rios from disabled list
    Royals activated outfielder Alex Rios from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Rios missed 6 1/2 weeks with a fractured left hand. He'll return as the Royals' primary right fielder, and he should be fine to use in mixed leagues next week.
    Today, 11:22 am
  • Royals demote Orlando to Triple-A
    Royals optioned outfielder Paulo Orlando to Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: Orlando was the regular right fielder while Alex Rios was out, but he wasn't very good at all in that role and there was no way the Royals were going to sacrifice Jarrod Dyson to keep Orlando on the roster with Rios back. Orlando hit .241/.274/.384 in 112 at-bats overall, but that was because of his strong first couple of games of the season. He hit .231/.259/.327 during Rios's absence.

  • Garcia (knee) back in White Sox lineup Sat.
    Avisail Garcia (knee) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Saturday versus the Astros.

    Advice: Garcia missed several games with discomfort in his right knee. The rest should do him some good in the long term. He's batting .327/.365/.456 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 39 games this season for the Pale Hose.
    Today, 9:54 am
  • Adam Jones (ankle) not in lineup Saturday
    Adam Jones is not in the Orioles' lineup Saturday.

    Advice: It's just a day of maintenance for Jones, who rolled his ankle a couple days ago. David Lough will start in center field in his place Saturday against the Rays.

  • David Peralta not in D'Backs lineup Saturday
    David Peralta is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Ender Inciarte will get the start in left field while Mark Trumbo mans right field. The 27-year-old is slashing .258/.328/.483 with five homers and 24 RBI in 44 games on the season. He should be back in there for Sunday's series finale.

  • Ben Revere to platoon with Francoeur in right
    Ben Revere is expected to share time in right field with Jeff Francoeur now that Cody Asche has been recalled to play left field for the Phillies.

    Advice: That will certainly cut into Revere's fantasy value, as it's hard to steal bases if you aren't on the field. The 27-year-old is hitting .263/.303/.342 with no homers, 15 RBI and nine stolen bases on the season.

  • Seth Smith hits fifth homer
    Batting cleanup for the first time this season, Seth Smith homered and walked against the Indians on Friday.

    Advice: The Mariners hit Nelson Cruz third tonight with Robinson Cano sitting again, leaving Smith to hit cleanup. Even though it worked, we wouldn't expect Smith to remain there Saturday.
    Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Carter drives in two runs vs. White Sox
    Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Friday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Carter had an RBI single in the fourth inning before hitting a sacrifice fly in the sixth. While he still owns a miserable .185/.287/.333 batting line on the year, he's hitting .264 over his last 16 games. Hey, it's progress.

  • Peralta homers against Brewers on Fri.
    David Peralta went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, two walks, and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Batting out of the cleanup spot,, Peralta had an RBI double in the first inning and a solo homer in the third. The 27-year-old has quietly been very useful in fantasy leagues this season, batting .258 with five home runs, 24 RBI, and an .812 OPS over 44 games.
    Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Garcia (knee) expects to return on Saturday
    Avisail Garcia (knee) expects to return to the White Sox lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since aggravating his knee injury during Monday's game. It's the type of injury that isn't serious enough to land him on the disabled list, but could continue to crop up here and there throughout the grind of the MLB season.
    Yesterday, 6:21 pm
  • Avisail Garcia (knee) sitting out again Fri.
    Avisail Garcia (knee) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Garcia hasn't played since aggravating his right knee injury during Monday's game. He is progressing, though, as he did some running and will hit and take flyballs during batting practice before the game. It sounds like he could be back in the lineup at some point over the weekend. J.B. Shuck is in right field Friday.
    Yesterday, 1:50 pm
  • Khris Davis not in Friday's lineup
    Khris Davis is not in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

  • Alex Rios (hand) to be activated on Saturday
    Alex Rios (hand) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: He had been slated for a return on Friday, but the Royals have decided to give him one more day. Rios has been on the shelf since mid-April with a fracture in his left hand. Paulo Orlando is getting another start in right field Friday but is expected to be sent down when Rios is activated.
    Yesterday, 9:47 am
  • Jones singles, strikes out twice vs CWS
    Adam Jones went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Jones did hit a single against Chris Sale, but otherwise, he was held quiet. He hasn't had many of these kinds of games this season. For the year, Jones is hitting .313/.353/.472 with six homers, 25 RBI and 21 runs scored. His bat is one of the most consistent in the majors.

    White Sox manager Robin Ventura confirmed that Avisail Garcia (knee) won't play in either half of Thursday's doubleheader at Baltimore's Camden Yards.

    Advice: Garcia hasn't played since leaving Monday's game in Toronto with discomfort in his right knee. It's something that has been bothering him for a couple of weeks, so the White Sox want to give him some extended rest. The 23-year-old is batting .327/.365/.456 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 39 games this season. J.B. Shuck is in right field in the first half Thursday.
    Thursday, 8:25 am
  • Avisail Garcia (knee) not in lineup Thursday
    Avisail Garcia (knee) is not in the White Sox starting lineup for the first half of Thursday's doubleheader.

    Advice: He might also sit out the second half. Garcia left Monday's game in Toronto after experiencing renewed discomfort in his right knee and the White Sox opted to keep him off the Rogers Centre turf for the remainder of that series. He remains day-to-day. J.B. Shuck is starting in right field on Thursday afternoon in Baltimore.

  • Bryce Harper homers, walks twice
    Bryce Harper homered and walked twice Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: He struck out in his other two plate appearances, so it was all three-true outcomes tonight. For the year, he has 18 homers, 42 walks and 46 strikeouts in 200 plate appearances.
    Wednesday, 8:17 pm
  • Davis triples twice but Brewers fall to SFG

    Wednesday, 1:46 pm
  • Dodgers recall Chris Heisey from AAA OKC
    Dodgers recalled OF Chris Heisey from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Heisey has been up and down all season and probably won't play enough to carry fantasy relevance in NL-only leagues. His longest stay in the majors this year lasted five days.

He leads the league with four three-baggers on the season and is now batting .264/.306/.346 with 15 RBI and nine stolen bases. The Phillies have had some trade interest in Revere, particularly as he has heated up as of late.

    Bryce Harper belted his 17th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Advice: Harper tied the game at 1-1 with his seventh-inning blast off of starter Kyle Hendricks. The phenom has homered 12 times in the month of May. Along with 17 round-trippers total, he's hitting .331/.467/.734 with 42 RBI. Player of the Month honors await him.
    Tuesday, 7:00 pm
  • Orlando provides Royals' only run with homer
    Paulo Orlando's home run accounted for the Royals' only run in a 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Advice: Orlando ruined Adam Warren's bid for a shutout with a solo home run in the sixth inning, his first of the season. He finished 1-for-3 on the night. The outfielder has a league-leading total of five triples but is otherwise hitting a mediocre .250/.284/.394 with seven RBI.

  • Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has been hitting
    Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has been hitting for a few days.

    Advice: Hitting hasn't been an issue, but Puig is still feeling some tightness in his left hamstring while running. He'll report to extended spring training to continue his rehab when the Dodgers begin their road trip this weekend. Obviously, fantasy owners can't get excited about getting him back until the tightness completely goes away.

  • Avisail Garcia (knee) won't return Wednesday
    Avisail Garcia (knee) won't return Wednesday.

    Advice: Garcia left Monday's game in Toronto after experiencing renewed discomfort in his right knee and he is not in the lineup Tuesday. The White Sox have decided to keep him off the heavily-criticized new turf at Rogers Centre. J.B. Shuck is filling in for Chicago.
    Tuesday, 2:47 pm
  • Avisail Garcia (knee) not in lineup Tuesday
    Avisail Garcia (knee) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Garcia left Monday's game with continued inflammation in his right knee and is considered day-to-day. J.B. Shuck will fill in Tuesday.
    Tuesday, 12:44 pm
  • Garcia day-to-day with knee inflammation
    Avisail Garcia is considered day-to-day after leaving Monday's game with more inflammation in his right knee.

    Advice: Garcia had just returned to action on Sunday after missing two games with the ailment. He singled in his first at-bat Monday but then had to be taken out when the knee acted up on him again. It sets up as a sticky situation for fantasy owners, as Garcia's ailment doesn't appear bad enough to require a disabled list stint but he also might be in and out of the lineup.
    Monday, 5:07 pm
  • Avisail Garcia removed with injury Monday
    Avisail Garcia exited Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Garcia singled in his lone at-bat in the top of the frame but then was removed for defense in the bottom of the inning. The outfield has battled inflammation in his right knee of late, so it's safe to assume that's the issue here again. The White Sox should update his status soon.
    Monday, 4:40 pm
  • Davis hits two home run in loss
    Khris Davis went 3-for-3 with a pair of solo homers and three runs scored in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: Davis also drew a walk, so he reached base in all four of his plate appearances. His first home run of the day nearly got taken away, as it was ruled that he didn't touch home plate after the Giants appealed. However, the call was reversed after a replay review. This was his second career multi-homer game. Davis has been very inconsistent so far this season, resulting in a .245/.333/.424 over 42 games.
    Monday, 2:49 pm
  • Alex Rios to begin rehab assignment Sunday
    Alex Rios (hand) will begin his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

    Sunday, 2:05 pm
  • Harper's two RBI send Nats past the Phillies
    Bryce Harper went 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBI as the Nationals beat the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Harper broke a 1-1 tie in the fifth inning with an RBI ground out. He provided insurance in the seventh inning with an RBI single, and soon thereafter scored from first base on a Ryan Zimmerman double. The 22-year-old phenom has looked unstoppable through two months, batting .333/.471/.728 with 16 home runs and 41 RBI.
    Sunday, 1:32 pm
  • Avisail Garcia (knee) returns to lineup Sun.
    Avisail Garcia (knee) is back in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Garcia hasn't played since Thursday due to inflammation in his right knee, but he apparently feels well enough to give it a go in this one. The 23-year-old is hitting a nifty .319/.359/.451 with four homers this season.
    Sunday, 9:21 am
  • Harper belts 16th home run to power Nationals
    Bryce Harper blasted his 16th home run of the season on Friday, powering the Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Phillies.

    Advice: Harper victimized Sean O'Sullivan for the solo blast in the second inning, the third time that he's taken the young right-hander deep this season. He is in a class of his own at the plate right now, slashing a ridiculous .336/.475/.750 to go along with his 16 bombs and 39 RBI. While it's only May, he's the clear early favorite for National League MVP honors it what is shaping up to be a breakout season for the 22-year-old.
    Friday, 7:06 pm
  • Yasiel Puig (hamstring) still has tightness
    Yasiel Puig attempted to jog on Friday, but is still experiencing tightness in his left hamstring.

    Advice: Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported Friday afternoon that Puig was feeling much better and that it may not be long before he returns, but it appears as though he's still dealing with the hamstring issue. He'll still need a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Dodgers, so fantasy owners shouldn't count on having him any time soon.

  • Yasiel Puig (hamstring) 'feeling much better'
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is "feeling much better" and it "may not be that much longer" before he returns.

    Advice: Puig was shut down just over a week ago after having a setback with his left hamstring during his rehab assignment, but he's evidently made nice progress since then. The Dodgers have yet to reveal when the outfielder will re-start the rehab assignment, but it sounds like it could happen shortly.

  • Peralta knocks in three runs in D'Backs win
    David Peralta singled twice and knocked in three runs over five plate appearances in Wednesday's victory against the Marlins.

    Advice: Peralta knocked in a first-inning run on a ground out, added a sacrifice fly in the seventh, and added more insurance with an RBI single in the ninth. The outfielder maintains a productive .276/.327/.500 batting line with four home runs and 18 RBI.
    Wednesday, 7:25 pm
  • Harper ejected for arguing balls and strikes
    Bryce Harper was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Yankees for arguing balls and strikes.

    Advice: This one wasn't even a called third strike, as Harper was tossed by home plate umpire Marvin Hudson on a first-pitch strike. The ejection was Harper's second in the past week, as he was tossed from last Wednesday's game for arguing as well. He's super talented, but his attitude can obviously still get him in trouble at times.
    Wednesday, 4:55 pm
  • Carter launches two-run homer against A's
    Chris Carter hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Athletics.

    Advice: Carter connected against A's starter Sonny Gray in the second inning. He's shown signs of life at the plate recently, as the homer was his second in his last four games. He's now got seven homers on the year, but he's capable of going on a tear on short notice.
