  • Mariners option Chris Taylor to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned SS Chris Taylor to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Luis Sardinas was called up as the corresponding roster move. Taylor had been on the major league roster just four days before being called back down. In 84 career games in the bigs, the 25-year-old shortstop owns a .240/.296/.296 triple-slash. He managed a single in three at-bats during his most recent cup of coffee. 23 minutes ago

  • Mariners promote INF Sardinas from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled INF Luis Sardinas from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Shorstop Chris Taylor has been optioned to Triple-A as the corresponding roster move. Earlier this season, the 23-year-old Sardinas saw 26 at-bats with the M's. He managed just four hits in that space. While he could see his share of playing time until Ketel Marte (thumb) is ready to return, he has yet to find the sort of major league success that would make him a palatable fantasy option. 28 minutes ago
  • Tulo (quad) not in Blue Jays' lineup on Wed.
    Troy Tulowitzki (quad) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup Wednesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Tulo made an early exit from Tuesday's game after experiencing tightness in his right quad. Ryan Goins will start at shortstop and bat eighth versus Ivan Nova. Devon Travis will make his season debut at second. Today, 12:43 pm

  • Braves claim Dario Alvarez from the Mets
    Braves claimed LHP Dario Alvarez off waivers from the Mets; assigned him to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Alvarez was designated for assignment by New York on May 23 to open up a 40-man roster spot for utilityman Ty Kelly. The left-hander had a brutal 9.98 ERA over 17 appearances this season at the Triple-A level. It's a "why not?" situation for Atlanta. Today, 12:29 pm

  • Rays option Tim Beckham to AAA Durham
    Rays optioned INF Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Beckham was batting just .185/.241/.352 over 58 plate appearances as a utility infielder in Tampa Bay. The 26-year-old former top prospect shouldn't be owed in any standard fantasy league as he heads to Triple-A. Today, 12:26 pm

  • Shaw (hand) returns to Red Sox lineup Wed.
    Travis Shaw (hand) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Wednesday versus the Rockies.

    Advice: Shaw sat out Tuesday with a minor left hand injury. It was probably just soreness. He will start at third base and bat seventh against Colorado righty Chad Bettis. Today, 12:10 pm
    4:10 pm vs Col
  • Blue Jays option Pat Venditte back to AAA
    Blue Jays optioned SHP Pat Venditte to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The switch-pitcher has a 4.05 ERA in 6 2/3 innings this season with Toronto and a 4.33 ERA for his career. He'll probably be up and down all season for the Jays. Today, 11:31 am

  • Pirates recall Lobstein from AAA level
    Pirates recalled LHP Kyle Lobstein from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Lobstein is filling in for lefty Tony Watson, who went on the paternity leave list Wednesday in a corresponding move. Lobstein, 26, holds a 5.24 career ERA. Today, 11:24 am
  • Pirates place Tony Watson on paternity leave
    Pirates placed LHP Tony Watson on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Watson will be excused for the next 3-5 days to welcome a new child. The left-handed reliever owns a 2.18 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 20 2/3 innings this season. Today, 11:19 am

  • Asdrubal Cabrera pulled due to back spasms
    Asdrubal Cabrera is day-to-day with back spasms.

    Advice: Cabrera left Wednesday's game against the Nationals in the bottom of the first inning, with Matt Reynolds taking over at shortstop. Asdrubal apparently felt the discomfort during pregame warmups. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but you never know with the Mets and their recent rash of back issues. Today, 10:28 am

  • Pence (hamstring) remains out Wednesday
    Hunter Pence (hamstring) remains absent from the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

    Advice: Pence has been dealing with right hamstring discomfort since Saturday and told reporters Tuesday that he plans to take it easy and let the muscle fully heal. There's a chance he could return Friday after Thursday's scheduled off day, but it's not guaranteed. Jarrett Parker is starting in left field and Gregor Blanco is in right field Wednesday versus Padres right-hander James Shields. Today, 10:25 am

  • Carpenter out Wednesday with wife in labor
    Matt Carpenter is out of the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday because his wife is about to have a baby.

    Advice: It seemed odd that the Cards would rest their best left-handed hitter against Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta. Now we have a good reason for the absence. Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth in the afternoon tilt at Busch Stadium. Kolten Wong will take a turn at leadoff. Today, 9:57 am
    Top 8, 8-9 vs x ChC
  • Travis d'Arnaud clear for baseball activities
    Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) has reported to the Mets' spring training facilities in Florida.

    Advice: And the plan calls for d'Arnaud to resume full baseball activities on Thursday, per assistant general manager John Ricco. The 27-year-old catcher has been on the disabled list since April 26 with a strained right rotator cuff and remains without an exact timetable for activation. If he can avoid setbacks, it's possible we'll see him return in late June. But that's really just a guess. Today, 9:00 am
    15-Day DL

  • Lindor out of Cleveland's lineup Wednesday
    Francisco Lindor is out of the Indians' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the White Sox.

    Advice: It's a simple day of maintenance for Lindor. Jose Ramirez will draw the start at shortstop and bat third Wednesday versus White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana. Today, 8:56 am
  • Matt Carpenter taking the day off Wednesday
    Matt Carpenter is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest. Ruben Tejada is starting at third base and batting eighth for St. Louis in the afternoon game against Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta. Kolten Wong will fill in at leadoff. Today, 8:53 am
    Top 8, 8-9 vs x ChC
  • Moustakas to have knee examined Thursday
    Mike Moustakas will have his bruised knee examined by team doctors on Thursday in Kansas City.

    Advice: Moustakas has been held out of the Royals' starting lineup since banging his knee against Alex Gordon on Sunday afternoon in Chicago. Gordon took the brunt of that collision -- he's already been placed on the disabled list with a broken scaphoid bone in his right wrist -- but Moustakas is now having serious problems too. Per beat writer Jeffrey Flanagan of, the third baseman was able to take swings Wednesday but had issues doing any sort of lateral movement. He could soon join Gordon on the DL. Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at the hot corner Wednesday afternoon in Minnesota. Today, 8:50 am

  • Skaggs (elbow, biceps) nearing rehab games
    Tyler Skaggs (elbow, biceps) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

    Advice: That's the word from Angels manager Mike Scioscia. Skaggs is on his way back from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and came down with biceps tendinitis earlier this month. He'll likely be asked to make several appearances in the minors before the Angels consider him an option for their starting rotation. Today, 8:47 am

  • Greene (blister) goes 3 1/3 scoreless at AAA
    Shane Greene (blister) tossed 3 1/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in a rehab start with Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: Greene struck out seven and didn't walk a batter, scattering four hits over his 3 1/3 shutout frames. The right-hander also looked sharp in his rehab debut last Friday with Low-A West Michigan. He could be cleared to return to the Tigers early next week. Today, 8:43 am
    15-Day DL

  • Ben Revere out of Nationals' lineup Wed.
    Ben Revere is out of the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Revere slugged his fifth career homer as part of a 2-for-3 night on Tuesday against the Mets, but he'll take a seat for the matinee Wednesday with New York throwing left-hander Steven Matz. Michael Taylor is starting in center field and batting leadoff for Washington. Today, 8:36 am
    L, 2-0 vs x NYM
  • Moustakas (knee) absent again Wednesday
    Mike Moustakas (knee) remains absent from the Royals' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Twins.

    Advice: Moustakas has now missed three straight games with a knee contusion that he suffered Sunday in a collision with Alex Gordon. He's still considered day-to-day. Cheslor Cuthbert will start at third base and bat seventh Wednesday against Twins righty Tyler Duffey. Today, 8:16 am
    L, 7-5 x @Min
  • Odor's appeal ruling coming Thursday, Friday?
    Rougned Odor's eight-game suspension appeal decision probably won't come until Thursday or Friday.

    Advice: Odor had the appeal hearing Tuesday, but Jon Morosi of FOX Sports notes that there is "a lot of information being considered" by the people tasked with rendering a ruling. The second baseman was issued the eight-game punishment by Major League Baseball on May 17 for his role in a massive May 15 brawl with the Blue Jays. He could be clearly seen connecting on a punch to Jose Bautista's face. Odor will remain active until the appeal decision is announced. Today, 7:54 am
  • Kinsler (flu) sits again Wednesday vs. Phils
    Ian Kinsler (flu) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup again on Wednesday versus the Phillies.

    Advice: Kinsler had to be scratched from Tuesday night's game after experiencing flu-like symptoms and he'll remain on the bench for Wednesday's matinee. Mike Aviles is starting at second base and batting eighth versus Philadelphia right-hander Aaron Nola. Cameron Maybin will get another turn at leadoff. Today, 7:09 am
    L, 8-5 vs x Phi
  • Loup (elbow) throws scoreless inning at AAA
    Aaron Loup (elbow) threw another scoreless inning Tuesday night at Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Loup got roughed up in his rehab debut May 14 at High-A Dunedin, but he's made four scoreless appearances since with four strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings. The left-hander should be cleared to join Toronto's bullpen this weekend. He's been out all year because of a flexor strain in his pitching elbow. Today, 6:06 am
    15-Day DL

  • Duvall whacks two-run homer in loss to LAD
    Adam Duvall went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Duvall was the entire Reds offense (as it were) in the 8-2 loss, cracking a two-run home run off starter Mike Bolsinger in the fourth inning. The 27-year-old has now homered in two of his last three games and boosted his triple-slash to .259/.294/.548 in the process. For the season, he has smacked nine homers and 12 doubles while driving in 19 runs across 135 at-bats. Yesterday, 10:26 pm
  • Bolsinger allows two runs in sixth vs Reds
    Making his second start of the season, Mike Bolsinger allowed two runs on three hits over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Bolsinger struck out six and walked one on the evening. Both runs on his line came home courtesy of a two-run home run by Adam Duvall in the fourth inning. The 28-year-old right-hander was optioned to Triple-A following his first start of the season last week and while he pitched just fine in start No. 2, he shouldn't be considered a long-term rotation option for fantasy purposes. Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Jon Jay smacks solo homer in loss to SFG
    Jon Jay went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Jay stroked a solo home run against Giants starter Jeff Samardzija in the sixth inning. It would be one of just two runs the Padres managed to scratch out on the evening. With a .267/.330/.372 triple-slash over 172 at-bats, the 31-year-old outfielder can be safely ignored for fantasy purposes. Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Santana smacked for nine hits, six runs by KC
    Ervin Santana was battered by the Royals for nine hits and six runs over 3 2/3 innings in a loss Tuesday.

    Advice: The start was, by almost any measure, his worst of the season to date, dropping his record to 1-3 overall. Through his first seven starts, Santana owned a 3.13 ERA; after Tuesday, it sits at 4.17, with a 1.49 WHIP to boot. The 33-year-old has generally been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal season for the Twins, and he'll attempt to get back on track Monday at the Athletics. Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Lindor collects three more hits against Sox
    Francisco Lindor went 3-for-5 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lindor was one of four Indians with multiple hits against Chris Sale and company. The shortstop now has six three-hit games in the month of May, batting .340 with 11 RBI and 17 runs scored this month. The 22-year-old is hitting .318/.372/.413 with nine stolen bases overall. Yesterday, 8:13 pm
  • Ben Revere hits rare homer Tuesday
    Ben Revere ripped a rare home run in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: The home run even came off of a left-hander, as Revere took southpaw Antonio Bastardo deep with a solo shot in the seventh inning. Revere also doubled and drew a walk, scoring a pair of runs on the night. The speedy leadoff hitter is starting to heat up with multi-hit games in four out of his last five contests. Yesterday, 7:41 pm
    L, 2-0 vs x NYM
  • Tulo removed from game with quad tightness
    Troy Tulowitzki left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with tightness in his right quad.

    Advice: Tulowitzki was 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base before exiting. He may have injured the quad on that swipe of second base in the top of the seventh. Ryan Goins moved to shortstop and catcher Russell Martin took over at second to close out the 6-0 loss. Tulo will be reevaluated by the Blue Jays training staff on Wednesday. Yesterday, 7:08 pm
    4:05 pm x @NYY
  • Pence (hamstring) out again Tuesday vs. SD
    Hunter Pence (hamstring) is out of the Giants' starting lineup again on Tuesday versus the Padres.

    Advice: Jarrett Parker will start in left field and bat seventh and Gregor Blanco will start in right field and bat eighth. Pence has been bothered by hamstring discomfort since Saturday, though he did hit a walkoff bloop double on Monday night against the Padres. He remains day-to-day. Yesterday, 3:14 pm
    Top 5, 1-0 vs x SD
  • Kinsler scratched Tuesday with flu symptoms
    Ian Kinsler was scratched from the Tigers' lineup Tuesday due to flu-like symptoms.

    Advice: Mike Aviles will start at second base and Cameron Maybin will bat leadoff versus Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson. Kinsler is considered day-to-day. Yesterday, 2:17 pm
    L, 8-5 vs x Phi
  • Moustakas (knee) out again Tuesday vs. MIN
    Mike Moustakas (knee) is out again Tuesday.

    Advice: Moustakas suffered a knee contusion in his collision with Alex Gordon on Sunday and has now missed two straight games. Cheslor Cuthbert is at third base and Whit Merrifield is at second base on Tuesday night against Twins right-hander Ervin Santana. Yesterday, 1:58 pm
    L, 7-5 x @Min
  • Odor (suspension) in Rangers' lineup Tuesday
    Rougned Odor is batting leadoff in the Rangers' starting lineup Tuesday versus Anaheim.

    Advice: Odor had an appeal hearing for his eight-game suspension on Tuesday afternoon, but the Rangers aren't expecting a ruling to come down before the start of Tuesday night's game against the visiting Angels. The second baseman was issued the suspension (and a fine) for his role in last Sunday's brawl with the Blue Jays. Odor got a clean shot to the face of Jose Bautista after Bautista slid hard into him at the second base bag. Yesterday, 1:16 pm
  • Travis Shaw (hand) not in Tuesday's lineup
    Travis Shaw (hand) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.

    Advice: Shaw is currently dealing with a minor injury to his left hand is considered day-to-day. Josh Rutlege is filling in at third base. Yesterday, 12:10 pm
    4:10 pm vs Col
  • Pence (hamstring) has walk-off pop-up 2B
    Hunter Pence (hamstring) delivered a walk-off pop-up RBI double in Monday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: It was a ball that should have been caught, but the Giants will take it. Pence has missed three straight starts with a mild right hamstring strain and didn't feel comfortable taking swings in batting practice Monday, but he's not far off. Yesterday, 5:42 am
    Top 5, 1-0 vs x SD
  • D'Arnaud (shoulder) has resumed throwing
    Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) has resumed throwing in California.

    Advice: D'Arnaud was shut down earlier this month after he felt renewed discomfort in his rotator cuff, but he has made progress since receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection. The plan calls for him to travel to Port St. Lucie, Florida later this week to ramp up baseball activities, but the best-case scenario is that he's likely a few weeks away from joining the Mets. Monday, 4:29 pm

  • Pence diagnosed with mild hamstring strain
    Hunter Pence was diagnosed with a mild right hamstring strain following an MRI.

    Advice: Pence has missed the last two games, but he's scheduled to take batting practice on Monday and could potentially talk his way into the lineup if he feels good. Either way, it doesn't sound like he'll be sidelined for much longer. Monday, 4:11 pm
    Top 5, 1-0 vs x SD
  • Dodgers recall RHP Bolsinger from Triple-A
    Dodgers recalled RHP Mike Bolsinger from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Bolsinger will presumably make the start Tuesday against the Reds. The 28-year-old gave up three runs in 4 1/3 innings last Wednesday against the Angels before being sent down to Triple-A. Monday, 3:40 pm
  • Hunter Pence (hamstring) out again Monday
    Hunter Pence (hamstring) is out again Monday against the Padres.

    Advice: Pence has now missed three straight games with right hamstring soreness. The Giants continue to call him day-to-day. Gregor Blanco is starting in right field again Monday. Monday, 3:22 pm
    Top 5, 1-0 vs x SD
  • Moustakas day-to-day with knee contusion
    Mike Moustakas is day-to-day with a knee contusion.

    Advice: Moustakas presumably banged up the knee in a collision with Alex Gordon on Sunday. Cheslor Cuthbert has returned to the active roster now that Gordon is on the disabled list, but Whit Merrifield is playing third base Monday. Moose should be back in there soon. Monday, 2:34 pm
    L, 7-5 x @Min
  • Mike Moustakas not in Monday's lineup
    Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's lineup against the Twins.

    Advice: Moustakas was in the original lineup, so perhaps something is ailing him from Sunday's collision with teammate Alex Gordon. Whit Merrifield will fill in at third base. Monday, 2:11 pm
    L, 7-5 x @Min
  • Mets designate Alvarez for assignment
    Mets designated LHP Dario Alvarez for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Ty Kelly on the 40-man roster. Alvarez has struggled to the tune of a 9.98 ERA over 17 appearances this season in Triple-A. There's a chance he'll pass through waivers unclaimed. Monday, 1:11 pm

  • Loup (elbow) pitches scoreless rehab inning
    Aaron Loup (elbow) pitched a scoreless eighth inning in his rehab debut with Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

    Advice: Loup worked around a double by inducing three groundouts. The left-hander has been out all season due to a flexor strain in his throwing elbow. He should be an option for the Toronto bullpen by the end of this week. Monday, 7:02 am
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm @NYY
  • Rougned Odor's appeal to be heard on Tuesday
    Rougned Odor is scheduled to have his appeal hearing on his eight-game suspension on Tuesday.

    Advice: John McHale, the Executive Vice President of MLB will hear the appeal and make the final ruling. Regardless of whether or not the suspension gets lessened, Odor is expected to begin serving his punishment on Friday. That means fantasy owners will need to have an alternative option lined up for next weekend. Sunday, 6:37 pm
  • Hunter Pence remains out of Giants lineup
    Hunter Pence (hamstring) is once again absent from the Giants starting lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: Pence is dealing with soreness in his right hamstring, which also caused him to miss Saturday's game. He is available off the bench as a pinch-hitter, but manager Bruce Bochy thought it would be best to give him an extra day of rest. Gregor Blanco will once again start in his place in right field with Angel Pagan manning left field. Sunday, 3:08 pm
    Top 5, 1-0 vs x SD
  • Adam Duvall crushes solo homer in loss
    Adam Duvall went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: It was just a solo home run, but what a solo home run it was. Duvall absolutely unloaded on a Wade Miley offering in the fourth inning, launching it an estimated 457 feet to left-center. With a .264/.299/.543 triple-slash and eight homers over 129 at-bats, the 27-year-old outfielder is worth a pickup in deeper mixed leagues, particularly for those who need a little power boost. Sunday, 2:15 pm
  • Rougned Odor not in Sunday's lineup
    Rougned Odor is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Odor has had trouble in his career against Dallas Keuchel, so he'll get a breather for this one. Shin-Soo Choo and Mitch Moreland are also sitting against the southpaw, as the Rangers are going with Hanser Alberto at second base, Drew Stubbs in right field and Ryan Rua at first base. Sunday, 8:13 am
  • Chris Taylor recalled from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled SS Chris Taylor from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: He's replacing Ketel Marte (thumb) on the roster and should see plenty of time at shortstop while Marte is sidelined. Taylor has struggled during his time in the majors but has batted .294/.374/.464 with two homers and eight steals for Tacoma this season. Sunday, 8:06 am

  • Mariners to promote Chris Taylor on Sunday
    Chris Taylor will join the Mariners in Cincinnati on Sunday.

    Advice: The Mariners haven't announced a corresponding move, though it looks like Ketel Marte (thumb) could be headed to the disabled list. Taylor appeared in 37 games for Seattle last season, hitting .170 with only one RBI in 94 at-bats. He's had a productive year in the minors so far, batting .294 with eight steals for Triple-A Tacoma.

  • Pence sitting with sore hamstring Saturday
    Hunter Pence is dealing with a sore right hamstring.

    Advice: That would explain why Gregor Blanco is filling in at right field Saturday against the Cubs. Manager Bruce Bochy said Pence will be available to pinch-hit. He should be back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale. Saturday, 2:15 pm
    Top 5, 1-0 vs x SD
  • Hunter Pence not in Saturday's lineup
    Hunter Pence is not in the Giants' starting lineup Saturday against the Cubs.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. It's only Pence's second absence of the year. Gregor Blanco will handle right field with Kelby Tomlinson making a surprise start in left. Pence is tied for fourth in the NL with 32 RBI. Saturday, 1:31 pm

  • Greene to move rehab to Triple-A Wednesday
    Shane Greene (blister) will make his next minor league rehab start with Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday.

    Advice: Greene looked very sharp in his first start with Low-A West Michigan on Friday. He is expected to throw 60 pitches in that outing, which means he may need an additional start after that before he's ready for a potential return to the Tigers rotation. Saturday, 10:26 am

  • Aaron Loup moves rehab work to Triple-A
    Aaron Loup (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Advice: Loup had been working at High-A Dunedin, so the move to the higher level of competition is a good sign toward an impending return. The southpaw has been sidelined the entire season to date due to a flexor strain in his pitching elbow. Saturday, 9:07 am

    4:05 pm @NYY
  • Royals activate Mike Moustakas from 15-day DL
    Royals activated 3B Mike Moustakas from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Moustakas looked good on his minor league rehab assignment and is ready to rejoin a Royals lineup that has desperately missed his bat. He has been sidelined since early in the month due to a small fracture in his left thumb. Cheslor Cuthbert, who had been filling in for the past few weeks, was optioned back to Triple-A. Look for Moustakas to be back in the lineup on Saturday. Saturday, 6:12 am
    L, 7-5 x @Min
  • Shane Greene fans five in rehab appearance
    Shane Greene (blister) racked up five strikeouts over three scoreless innings in his minor league rehab start with Low-A West Michigan on Friday.

    Advice: Greene allowed two hits and a walk in the process, throwing a total of 42 pitches. He'll need at least one more rehab start before he's cleared to rejoin the Tigers, but could be worth a stash if he's sitting on the waiver wire in deeper mixed leagues. Friday, 5:14 pm

  • Ben Revere not in Friday's lineup
    Ben Revere is absent from the Nationals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's getting a breather with the Marlins throwing lefty Justin Nicolino. Michael Taylor is in center field and leading off. Friday, 1:32 pm
    L, 2-0 vs x NYM
  • Jon Jay (shoulder) gets two hits in return
    Jon Jay (shoulder) doubled and singled in his return to the lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Jay didn't start a game for nearly a week due to a sore shoulder. It's not expected to be a long-term issue for him. Friday, 5:04 am
  • Santana's eight quality innings aren't enough
    Ervin Santana pitched eight strong innings, allowing two runs on four hits, in a no-decision Thursday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Santana kept his team in the game but was matched by the equally effective Marco Estrada, leaving both out of the decision. The right-hander walked two while striking out five, with an Edwin Encarnacion two-run homer in the sixth accounting for all of the Jays' runs against him. Santana has been largely good in seven starts this year, posting a 3.13 ERA, but he's just 1-2 to show for it. The 33-year-old will seek a better result Tuesday against the Royals. Thursday, 9:52 pm
  • Carpenter's three XBH, six RBI pace Cardinals
    Matt Carpenter finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run and six RBI as the Cardinals outlasted the Rockies 13-7 on Thursday.

    Advice: Carpenter is usually the one scoring the runs atop the Cardinals' lineup, but he made his RBI opportunities count in this one. The third baseman had RBI doubles in the second and fourth innings, giving him 10 doubles on the year, and he put the cherry on top with a three-run homer in the eighth. Carpenter is now hitting .259/.387/.537 with nine homers, 32 RBI and 28 runs scored on the year. Thursday, 9:43 pm
    Top 8, 8-9 vs x ChC
  • Revere gets going with triple, two RBI
    Ben Revere finally got going Thursday, finishing 2-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored against the Mets.

    Advice: Revere actually had both of his hits in the top of the third inning, singling to lead off the frame before knocking a two-run triple to cap the scoring in the seven-run inning. It was just his second multi-hit outing in 12 games since returning from the disabled list as he continues to try to knock the rust off. The speedy outfielder is batting just .123/.177/.211 in 13 games overall. Thursday, 8:16 pm

  • Lindor steals base, scores twice against Reds
    Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base Thursday against the Reds.

    Advice: Lindor continues to hit everything in sight, as Thursday was his fourth consecutive multi-hit game and his sixth in the last week. The stolen base -- as if stinging the ball every at-bat wasn't enough -- was his seventh of the year. The 22-year-old is now hitting .329/.382/.439 with 19 RBI and 27 runs scored overall.

  • Dodgers demote Bolsinger after spot start
    Dodgers optioned RHP Mike Bolsinger to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Bolsinger allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in his season debut. Apparently, it wasn't enough to keep him in the starting rotation.

  • Jon Jay (shoulder) expected back Thursday
    Padres manager Andy Green said he expects Jon Jay (shoulder) to return to the lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Jay has been sidelined since last Friday because of a jammed shoulder, though he did make an appearance as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday night. He grounded out to second base in the bottom of the eighth inning, but it still served as a positive sign. Jay, the Padres' primary center fielder, is slashing .278/.338/.368 in 38 games this season. Thursday, 6:11 am
  • Mike Bolsinger takes loss in season debut
    Making his season debut, Mike Bolsinger pitched 4 1/3 innings and allowed three runs Wednesday in a loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Bolsinger was slated to be a part of the Dodgers rotation before suffering a strained oblique in spring training, costing him the first month. The Dodgers activated him tonight even though he probably could have used one or two more rehab starts. He might now be sent down to make them. Wednesday, 10:29 pm
  • Hunter Pence homers in Giants' win
    Hunter Pence homered off Drew Pomeranz to supply both Giants runs Wednesday against the Padres.

    Advice: It was worth wondering just how much the 33-year-old Pence would rebound after his injury-filled 2015, but he's off to a smashing start, with seven homers and an .885 OPS to date. He's finished with that high of an OPS just once in his career, when he came in at .899 in 108 games as a 24-year-old rookie in 2007. Wednesday, 10:02 pm

    Advice: Shaw launched a three-run blast off Royals starter Yordano Ventura in the sixth inning for his sixth homer of the year.

The 26-year-old is hitting .329/.400/.573 with 29 RBI and 24 runs scored, with three steals to boot, through 39 games this season. Tuesday, 8:55 pm

    Francisco Lindor doubled twice as part of a 3-for-6 night on Tuesday as the Indians routed the Reds.

    Advice: Cleveland's offense managed 13 runs on 17 hits -- with 10 of those runs and 14 of those hits coming against Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon. That follows a 15-6 explosion against Reds pitching on Monday. If only Lindor and the Indians could play the cross-state club all the time. Tuesday, 6:47 pm

    Jon Jay is day-to-day with a sore shoulder.

    Advice: Jay jammed the shoulder on Friday night and hasn't felt much progress, but the Padres are hoping this doesn't have to be a disabled list situation.

    Rougned Odor was ejected from Sunday's game against the Blue Jays after landing a massive right hook to the jaw of Jose Bautista during a benches-clearing brawl.

    Advice: After a hard slide from Bautista into second base, Odor wasted no time clocking Bautista which started the altercation.

  • Shane Greene (blister) nearing rehab games
    Shane Greene (blister) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo in the next few days.

    Advice: "His last bullpen was fine in terms of the finger, but he felt he wasn’t real crisp," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "We will give him another bullpen (session). He felt like it was a terrible bullpen, just from a pitching standpoint, not a physical standpoint." Greene will make at least two rehab starts for Toledo before rejoining the Tigers' rotation. Michael Fulmer will continue to hold down a rotation spot until then. May 15, 6:32 am
