  • Marwin Gonzalez pulled Wed. with sore hammy
    Marwin Gonzalez was pulled from Wednesday's loss to the A's with soreness in his right hamstring.

    Advice: "It happened the second game in Chicago (on Saturday), I got sore running the bases and since that day I've been playing with (soreness)," Gonzalez told reporters late Wednesday night. "So I've been dealing with it." The shortstop is hoping to play in Thursday's series finale. He's hit well since taking over for Jonathan Villar.

  • Ramirez (wrist) hasn't swung a bat since Sun.
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is still "feeling it" in his hand.

    Advice: Mattingly said Ramirez hasn't swung a bat since being hit in the hand by a pitch by Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal on Sunday. He has picked a bat up and "moved it around," according to Mattingly, for whatever that's worth. He's been called day-to-day since sustaining the injury, but Ramirez hasn't been in the lineup since Sunday and the Dodgers will have to think about a DL trip if he doesn't show great improvement soon.

  • Escobar tossed for arguing balls and strikes
    Yunel Escobar was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals for arguing balls and strikes.

    Advice: Escobar took a called strike three in the fourth inning and took exception to the call. Home plate umpire Dan Bellino took exception to his exception and threw Escobar out of the game. It was the Rays' second ejection in two nights after manager Joe Maddon was tossed from Tuesday's game in what turned out to be a miscommunication of sorts.

  • Tejada feels 'pretty good' after HBP in head
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Ruben Tejada feels "pretty good" after leaving Wednesday's game due to being hit in the head with a pitch.

    Advice: It's good news, as Tejada could have easily been more seriously injured. Team doctors said he has no concussion symptoms, so a roster move won't be made at this time. Tejada will travel home with the team and should be back in the lineup shortly.
    Yesterday, 4:04 pm
  • Tejada exits game after taking pitch to head
    Ruben Tejada left Wednesday's game against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch to the head.

    Advice: The ball hit the front of Tejada's helmet and knocked it off. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but the Mets will surely run concussion tests.

  • Hanley (wrist) out of LAD lineup again Tues.
    Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Pirates.

  • Lindor makes Triple-A debut
    Indians prospect SS Francisco Lindor went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and run scored on Tuesday in his debut with Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: He also struck out twice in the game. Lindor, 20, was promoted to Triple-A after batting .278/.352/.389 with 51 runs scored, 22 extra-base hits, 25 stolen bases and a 61-40 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 88 games at Double-A Akron. The slick-fielding shortstop should receive his first taste of the major leagues later this season before taking over for free-agent-to-be Asdrubal Cabrera at the position in 2015.

  • Rafael Furcal yet to resume activities
    Rafael Furcal (hamstring) has yet to resume baseball activities.

    Advice: Furcal has been on the shelf since mid-June following another hamstring injury. The veteran infielder is no safe bet to return at all this season.

  • Asdrubal Cabrera out again Wednesday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (back) remained out of the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He's missed the last two games after exiting Monday's contest with back spasms. The Indians have called up Jose Ramirez to provide protection for Cabrera, who is considered day-to-day.

  • Hardy doubles twice in win over Angels
    J.J. Hardy went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI in Tuesday's meeting with the Angels.

    Advice: He now has 21 doubles on the season, to go with 30 RBI and a slash line of .284/.316/.380 His power outage through the first three months of the season has been well documented. If you're looking to buy low on an infielder, Hardy is a possible candidate, though at this point it's hard to trust him. July has been a rough month for the shortstop, as he's scuffled to the tune of .220/.281/.356.

  • Rollins homers again, but Phils fall to SFG
    Jimmy Rollins blasted a two-run home run, finishing 1-for-5 with two walks overall, in a 14-inning loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rollins gave the Phillies a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run home run off of Yusmeiro Petit. It's his 13th home run of the season and his fifth in his last 10 games. He had six all of last season. The shortstop has had an up-and-down year, and maintains a mediocre .243/.327/.396 slash line with 45 RBI and 19 stolen bases.

  • Crawford helps Giants win in 14 with 3-run 2B
    Brandon Crawford cleared the bases with a double to break a 3-3 tie in the 14th inning as the Giants defeated the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Crawford took advantage of a struggling Jeff Manship, lacing a two-out double to left-center to give the Giants an 8-5 lead. They would tack on one more run just for good measure. Crawford had previously knocked in a run with a ground out and finished 2-for-6 on the night. The shortstop is slashing .239/.323/.413 with eight home runs and 44 RBI on the season.
    Tuesday, 9:56 pm
  • Ramirez has two hits, two steals vs. Royals
    Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Ramirez surprised everyone by stealing 30 bases last season, and his two thefts on Tuesday gives him 17 steals on the year. The All-Star's two hits helped to raise his season line to .281/.318/.395.

  • Reyes does a little of everything as Jays win
    Jose Reyes stole a base, homered, and doubled in a run in five at-bats as the Jays slugged their way to a win against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: For Reyes, the two extra-base hits equaled his total over the previous two weeks. His solo shot in the sixth inning off of Jake Peavy gave the Jays a 2-0 lead. He added some insurance in the eighth with an RBI double to make it 7-1. The shortstop is now sporting a .276/.326/.420 slash line with eight home runs, 32 RBI, and 19 stolen bases.

    Joe Panik left Tuesday's game versus the Phillies with a sprained right ankle.

    Advice: He grounded out in his lone plate appearance before exiting. The Giants should update Panik's status after the game. He was replaced at second base by Ehire Adrianza.

  • Asdrubal Cabrera (back) not in lineup Tues.
    Asdrubal Cabrera (back) is not playing Tuesday.

    Advice: Cabrera left Monday's series-opener against the Twins with back spasms. He's considered day-to-day. Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop Tuesday night in Minnesota.
    Tuesday, 1:37 pm
  • Hanley (wrist) not playing Tues. vs. Pirates
    Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Pirates.

    Advice: Ramirez was the struck by pitches on the left shoulder and wrist Sunday night in St. Louis. X-rays have been taken and came back negative, but the shortstop is still pretty sore. Justin Turner will again fill in.

  • Blue Jays recall INF Goins from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled INF Ryan Goins from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Goins batted just .150/.203/.217 over 24 games with the Blue Jays earlier this season. He's not fantasy relevant.

  • Ryan Goins to be called up from Triple-A
    Ryan Goins is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Blue Jays will also call up top prospect Aaron Sanchez. No word yet on the corresponding roster moves involved. Goins began the year as Toronto's starting second baseman, but he batted just .150/.203/.217 over 24 games before being demoted. Still, he's highly-regarded for his defense and could have value as a backup infielder.

  • 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.

  • Francisco Lindor promoted to Triple-A
    The Indians have promoted shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Lindor won't turn 21 until November, but he earned the promotion by batting .281/.356/.393 with six homers, 48 RBI and 25 steals while playing excellent defense at Double-A Akron. The top prospect should get a shot with the big club in September and could open next season as the Opening Day shortstop.

  • Asdrubal Cabrera exits with back spasms
    Asdrubal Cabrera left Monday's game against the Twins with lower back spasms.

    Advice: The injury appeared to occur when Cabrera fielded a groundout in the bottom of the second inning. He was pinch-hit for in the top of the third. The Indians should provide an update on their shortstop after the game.
    Monday, 6:29 pm
  • Hanley's second X-ray comes back clean
    A second X-ray on Hanley Ramirez's left hand came back negative.

    Advice: Ramirez passed a preliminary test Sunday after exiting following a hit by pitch, but the Dodgers wanted to give him another one just in case. The shortstop is out of Monday's lineup but should be back in there soon enough.
    Monday, 4:05 pm

    Advice: Ramirez was struck by two pitches in Los Angeles' defeat of the Cardinals on Sunday night in St. Louis -- once in the shoulder and once in the wrist. He passed a preliminary test, but the Dodgers will play it safe. Justin Turner is playing shortstop on Monday.
    Monday, 12:42 pm
  • Hanley removed from game after second HBP
    Hanley Ramirez left Sunday night's game against the Cardinals after taking a pitch off his wrist.

    Advice: It was a 99 mph fastball from Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal. Hanley also got plunked in his left shoulder earlier in the game, but a preliminary exam showed no major injuries and he told reporters late Sunday that he expects to start Monday in Pittsburgh. "We'll see," added Dodgers manager Don Mattingly.

  • Rafael Furcal moved to 60-day DL
    Marlins transferred 2B Rafael Furcal from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

  • Hanley Ramirez doubles in return to lineup
    Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) returned to the Dodgers lineup on Friday, going 1-for-4 with a double in a loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: The injury has been a nagging problem for Ramirez and has caused him to miss a handful of games over the last month. He has been terrific when on the field though, hitting .275/.368/.468 with 11 homers, 48 RBI and 12 stolen bases in his 84 games.

  • Alexei Ramirez held hitless in Friday's win
    Alexei Ramirez (back) returned to the White Sox lineup on Friday, going 0-for-4 in a victory over the Astros.

    Advice: Ramirez sat out the last two games of the first half due to stiffness in his back, but felt good enough to suit up for the All-Star Game. The 32-year-old shortstop is enjoying a fine season offensively, hitting .279/.315/.396 with eight homers, 41 RBI and 15 stolen bases.
