  • Evan Gattis getting a breather Monday
    Evan Gattis is not in the Astros' lineup Monday.

    Advice: The Astros don't have the designated hitter available in San Diego, so Gattis finds himself on the bench. He's hitting just .156/.194/.250 this season but does have two straight multi-hit games.

  • Monday's White Sox/Orioles game postponed
    Monday's game between the White Sox and Orioles has been postponed due to the protests in Baltimore.

    Advice: The decision was made after the O's consulted with the Baltimore City Police Department. No makeup date has been scheduled yet. Ubaldo Jimenez and Hector Noesi had been slated to start Monday.

  • Ottavino (triceps) placed on disabled list
    Rockies placed RHP Adam Ottavino on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 26, with right triceps inflammation.

    Advice: It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but obviously it's good news that he appears to have no structural damage. John Axford picked up a save last week while Ottavino was unavailable and looks like the guy to own in fantasy leagues.

  • Tanner Scheppers optioned to Triple-A
    Rangers optioned RHP Tanner Scheppers to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Scheppers returned from the disabled list barely over a week ago and has now been sent out after allowing five runs over four relief innings. He'll get another chance later this season.

  • Brown (Achilles) could be sent to Triple-A
    Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated Monday that it's possible Domonic Brown (Achilles) could be sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley once activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I don't know that he's ready (to face major league pitching)," Sandberg said of Brown, who is hitting just .188/.298/.292 on his rehab assignment. The Phillies must do something with the outfielder, as his rehab clock runs out after Tuesday. It's hard to believe they wouldn't think Brown is a better option than Jeff Francoeur in right field, but it wouldn't be the first time Philly has made an odd decision.

  • Joey Butler on a roll with Triple-A Durham
    Joey Butler has gotten off to a smoking hot start for Triple-A Durham, hitting .377 with 12 RBI in his first 17 games.

    Advice: At 29, we wouldn't really consider Butler a prospect, but that doesn't make his performance any less noteworthy. A Quad-A player for most of his career, Butler was among the Rays' last cuts in spring training. Butler has 14 games of big league experience on his resume and will probably get another chance to contribute at that level later this year.

    Cubs optioned RHP Brian Schlitter to Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Schlitter has been touched up for six runs on 10 hits and two walks over 5 2/3 relief frames this season. The Cubs are going with another position player in Junior Lake in his place.

  • Junior Lake recalled from Triple-A
    Cubs recalled OF Junior Lake from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Lake was batting .289/.340/.333 in the early going at Iowa. He'll give the Cubbies a backup option at all three outfield spots.

  • L.J. Hoes recalled from Triple-A
    Astros recalled OF L.J. Hoes from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Hoes was off to a sizzling .418/.458/.618 start at Fresno. He'll back up at all three outfield positions for the Astros.

  • Colome to rejoin Rays' rotation this weekend
    Alex Colome (illness) will rejoin the Rays' rotation this weekend in Baltimore.

    Advice: Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times suggests that Friday would be the most likely day. Colome got a late start to spring training due to a visa issue and then went down with pneumonia, but he's healthy now and spun six innings of one-run ball Sunday at Triple-A Durham. The young right-hander is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.

  • Rangers transfer Nick Tepesch to 60-day DL
    Rangers transferred RHP Nick Tepesch from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot on the Rangers' 40-man roster for the arrival of Josh Hamilton. Tepesch remains out indefinitely with a nerve issue in his elbow.

  • Red Sox option Heath Hembree to AAA
    Red Sox optioned RHP Heath Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Hembree was only in the majors for Sunday's game, and he got rocked for six earned runs in 1 1/3 innings of relief against the Orioles. Steven Wright takes his spot.

  • Alexei Ramirez not in CHW lineup Monday
    Alexei Ramirez is not in the White Sox starting lineup Monday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for Ramirez. Gordon Beckham is starting at shortstop and Conor Gillaspie is playing third base Monday against O's righty Ubaldo Jimenez.
    Today, 12:14 pm
  • L.J. Hoes to join the Astros on Monday
    L.J. Hoes will be called up on Monday.

    Advice: And right-hander Asher Wojciechowski will be sent to Triple-A Fresno to open up a 25-man roster spot. Houston wants an extra position player for its three-game series in San Diego, a National League city. Hoes will probably be shipped back to Fresno on Thursday.

  • Colome (pneumonia) goes six strong in rehab
    Alex Colome (illness) tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday at Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Colome yielded only four hits and walked none while striking out six. He threw 45 of his 63 pitches for strikes. The 26-year-old right-hander arrived late to Rays camp this spring due to visa issues and then caught a bad case of pneumonia once he did finally make it to Florida. Colome finally appears ready to join the Tampa Bay rotation and could be worth a look in some deeper fantasy formats.

  • Rajai Davis not worried about groin tightness
    Rajai Davis said Sunday evening that he doesn't believe his groin injury is serious.

    Advice: Davis had to jog to first base in the ninth inning Sunday after recording his third hit of the game and was then removed. But he expressed optimism about the groin discomfort in the clubhouse afterward. "I don't think it's serious at all," Davis said. "I just think it's sore, tight. I've been running around on it a lot the last couple of days. I guess I wasn't used to that. If I get my body used to it, I think I'll be all right." The 34-year-old is batting .341/.449/.488 with six stolen bases and 11 runs scored in 14 games (10 starts) this season.

  • Marisnick homers, scores three times Sun.
    Jake Marisnick (quad) went 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI, two stolen bases, and three runs scored in his return to the Astros' lineup Sunday against the A's.

    Advice: Marisnick sat out Friday and Saturday due to soreness in his right quad, but he returned with a vengeance on Sunday afternoon in Oakland. The 24-year-old center fielder is now batting .364/.408/.591 with two home runs and six stolen bases in 15 games this season. Hopefully he'll start moving up the Astros' batting order. Marisnick has hit ninth in all 15 of his starts so far.

  • Rajai Davis departs with tight right groin
    Rajai Davis was removed from Sunday's game against the Indians due to tightness in his right groin.

    Advice: Davis pulled up while running to first base on a single in the ninth inning. He appears to have avoided anything significant though and is considered day-to-day.
    Yesterday, 1:10 pm
  • Rajai Davis leaves with leg injury
    Rajai Davis exited Sunday's game against the Indians with an apparent leg injury.

  • Heath Hembree recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled RHP Heath Hembree from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Hembree was off to a nice start with Pawtucket, tossing eight scoreless relief innings with 10 strikeouts. He'll work as a middle reliever with the Red Sox.

  • Marisnick (quad) likely to sit again Sunday
    Jake Marisnick (quad) is expected to sit out again on Sunday.

    Advice: Marisnick is dealing with some soreness in his right quad area. He was able to do some running prior to Saturday's game with no issues, but the Astros are expected to rest him one more day. "Jake, we’ll well monitor him day to day," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He’s available but I’m going to try not to use him unless I have to. He’s bouncing around fine. I’m hopeful for (Sunday), but if it’s not (Sunday) and he needs another day we’re going to still be cautious with him."

  • Rajai Davis runs wild as Tigers top Indians
    Rajai Davis went 2-for-4 and swiped three bases on Saturday as the Tigers topped the Indians 4-1 at Comerica Park.

    Advice: Davis was the spark plug atop the Tigers lineup, running wild every chance that he got and scoring three of the team's four runs in the ballgame. He's off to another strong start in 2015, slashing .297/.409/.405 with six steals on the season.
    Saturday, 1:19 pm
  • Alex Colome to make one more rehab start
    Alex Colome (illness) is slated to make one more minor league rehab start before rejoining the Rays rotation.

    Advice: He can't get back soon enough as the Rays are currently dealing with trotting out the likes of Erasmo Ramirez every fifth day. With Alex Cobb working his way back, Colome's time in the rotation could also be short lived.

  • Evan Gattis not in Astros lineup Saturday
    Evan Gattis is not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It appears to be a routine day off for Gattis, which is somewhat odd timing after his two-hit effort on Friday night. Expect him to return on Sunday.
    Saturday, 10:48 am
  • Domonic Brown nearing return to Phillies
    Domonic Brown (Achilles) said Friday that he feels "outstanding" health wise as he nears his return to the Phillies next week.

    Advice: Brown has been on an extended minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Lehigh Valley where he has gone 3-for-24 with three walks and five strikeouts. The Phillies wanted him to get as many at-bats as possible to get his timing back before rejoining the big league club. His last game with the Iron Pigs should be Sunday or Monday.

  • Marisnick scratched with leg discomfort
    Jake Marisnick was scratched from the Astros starting lineup on Friday due to right leg discomfort.

    Advice: Marisnick will also sit out on Saturday as a precautionary measure. The young outfielder felt something while running the bases in Wednesday's contest. Robbie Grossman is getting the start in his place on Friday and batting ninth against the Athletics.
    Friday, 5:21 pm
  • Ottavino dealing with minor triceps soreness
    Adam Ottavino is currently dealing with slight soreness in his lower triceps.

    Advice: The Rockies said that Ottavino was unavailable on Thursday due to general soreness, and now the area for concern is known. John Axford filled in admirably in a save chance Thursday and would stand to benefit the most if Ottavino was forced to miss any significant amount of time.

  • Adam Ottavino records victory in relief
    Adam Ottavino notched the win in relief after the Rockies came back to beat the Padres 5-4 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ottavino worked a perfect ninth in a tie game before Daniel Descalso won it in the bottom of the ninth. Ottavino is off to a ridiculous start, with just one hit allowed and 12 strikeouts in 8 1/3 scoreless innings.

  • Jimenez allows two home runs, leading to loss
    Ubaldo Jimenez was doomed by a pair of two-run home runs served up in five innings of work in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jimenez allowed two-run home runs in consecutive innings: to Justin Smoak in the fourth, and to Devon Travis in the fifth. The right-hander overall gave up six hits, walked three, and struck out six in the effort. The four runs represent the first four he has allowed this season. He'll carry a 2.30 ERA, a 0.89 WHIP, and a 16/7 K/BB ratio over 15 2/3 innings into a home start against the White Sox.

  • Brown (Achilles) to use full rehab allotment
    Domonic Brown (Achilles) is expected to use his full 20-day allotment during his rehab assignment.

    Advice: Brown hasn't had issues with his left Achilles, but he's not hitting much so the Phillies plan to leave him at Triple-A Lehigh Valley in hopes that he figures things out. "It's kind of up to him when he finds his stride to get hot with the bat," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "I think that would be important for him." Brown's 20th rehab day is next Tuesday.

  • Colome (illness) to continue rehab stint Tue.
    Alex Colome (illness) will continue his minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Colome, who is working his way back from pneumonia, allowed two runs in six innings across two rehab starts with High-A Charlotte. He's slated to throw four or five innings Tuesday and the next step could be for him to join the Rays' rotation.

  • Jake Marisnick not in lineup Sunday
    Jake Marisnick is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Marisnick is one of the few regulars for the club who's hitting (.333/.344/.533), but he'll take a seat in this one. Colby Rasmus is covering center field, with Robbie Grossman handling left.

  • Ubaldo Jimenez tossed for hitting Sandoval
    Ubaldo Jimenez was ejected from Friday's game against the Red Sox after hitting Pablo Sandoval with a pitch.

    Advice: The veteran right-hander hadn't allowed a hit through his 3 2/3 innings of work before getting the gate from home plate umpire Jordan Baker. There had been no warning of either bench, though Sandoval did slide hard into second base and take out Jonathan Schoop earlier in the contest which could have prompted the retaliation.

  • Tanner Scheppers activated from DL
    Rangers activated RHP Tanner Scheppers from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Scheppers got a late start to the season because of an ankle injury, but he struck out five over 2 2/3 scoreless rehab innings. He'll operate in a setup role.
