    Joey Votto smacked a solo homer in Friday's win over the Nationals.

  • Tulowitzki homers twice to power Rockies
    Troy Tulowitzki clobbered a pair of solo home runs off Cole Hamels on Friday, powering the Rockies to a 4-1 victory over the Phillies.

    Advice: Tulo got the Rockies on the board with his solo blast in the first inning and repeated the feat in the third inning. He also collected a pair of singles, finishing the night 4-for-4 with two runs scored and a pair of RBI. The oft-injured shortstop is now hitting .285/.303/.456 with four long balls and 20 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Ross Detwiler to be used out of bullpen
    Ross Detwiler (shoulder) will be used out of the Rangers bullpen once he returns from the disabled list.

    Advice: The Rangers have had issues recently with the backend of their rotation, but it doesn't appear that Detwiler will be the savior for the group. He is expected to rejoin the team soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Mariners recall Dominic Leone from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled RHP Dominic Leone from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: He'll take the place of James Paxton on the active roster. Leone owns a 5.40 ERA and 4/6 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings out of the Mariners bullpen on the season. He'll likely hang around until the team decides how best to replace Paxton in the rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Casey Fien activated from disabled list
    Twins activated RHP Casey Fien from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Fien missed a month of action with a right shoulder strain. He'll return to a setup role for the Twins. Rotoworld.com

  • Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) returns to lineup
    Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) is back in the Rays' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's his first start since he suffered a mild groin injury on Sunday. Cabrera sports an ugly .213/.267/.338 batting line over 45 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Diamondbacks call up Jarrod Saltalamacchia
    Diamondbacks purchased the contract of C Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Saltalamacchia hit two homers in nine games for Reno but batted just .188/.222/.375 overall. However, with Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) going on the disabled list the Snakes needed another body behind the plate. Salty should get the bulk of the starts while Gosewisch is out and his power makes him worth an add in two-catcher leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Orioles getting interest in Alejandro De Aza
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "there's said to be a bit of a market" for Alejandro De Aza.

    Advice: De Aza was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Wednesday after batting .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. He's making $5 million this season, so the O's would likely have to eat some of the contract to move him in a trade. Heyman says that the Angels are not among the clubs interested in De Aza.

  • OF McCutchen has another multi-hit effort
    Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and two RBI as the Pirates bested the Padres on Thursday.

    Advice: McCutchen has finally woken up from his early-season slumber. He's had multi-hit games in five of his last eight, recording three in three of them. Hitting .188 as recently as May 6, McCutchen has his slash line up to .272/.364/.473. Expect it to keep rising. Rotoworld.com

  • Kennedy reverts back into a pitching machine
    Ian Kennedy was ripped for seven runs in 3 2/3 innings by the Pirates in Thursday's 11-5 loss.

    Advice: Here we go again. Kennedy coughed up three homers in the train wreck, the second time this year he's allowed at least three round-trippers and seven earned runs in a start. At 2-5 with a 7.15 ERA, he simply can't be trusted in fantasy at the moment. Rotoworld.com

  • Iannetta smacks grand slam as LAA punks DET
    Chris Iannetta went 2-for-4 with a double and a grand slam on Thursday in a 12-2 stomping of the Tigers.

    Advice: With the game already out of hand, Detroit stretched Tom Gorzelanny beyond his LOOGY capabilities and his ERA will suffer for it for some time. Not that Iannetta much cares. His slash line was a hideous .123/.217/.137 as recently as 11 days ago, but Carlos Perez's emergence has jolted him awake. Iannetta has 12 RBI in his past 10 games and three homers and three doubles across his last eight. Rotoworld.com

  • Uncle! Buck: Farmer gets blasted in loss
    Buck Farmer was detonated by the Angels on Thursday, yielding seven runs on nine hits over five innings of a 12-2 loss.

    Advice: He gave up twice as many homers (two) as he struck out. Farmer was making his season debut in a spot start in place of the injured Kyle Lobstein (shoulder). We are about to see how much faith the Tigers currently have in the 24-year-old, because a quick hook back to the minors is certainly in play here. In four career MLB appearances (two starts), Farmer has a 11.57 ERA. Rotoworld.com

  • Yankees Clipp'ed: Clippard finishes off NYY
    Tyler Clippard gave up one run but evaded further damage to earn his fifth save of the season in Thursday's 5-4 victory against the Yankees.

    Advice: Clippard had himself to blame for the run after inexplicably walking Garrett Jones -- who has been hitting like your grandfather has been cooking -- with two outs. Brett Gardner next doubled Jones in, doing right by the karma gods. Clippard has been effective and owns a nice 2.57 ERA, but his days as closer are numbered with Sean Doolittle healthy and shaking off the rust in middle relief. Rotoworld.com

  • Burns Notice: Billy smacks another homer
    Billy Burns finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's 5-4 victory over the Yankees.

    Advice: Billy Burns is apparently the new Rickey Henderson. He's hit two homers in the past five games (and also smacked a double). How surprising is that? Well, Mr. Burns hit a grand total of two homers in 1,796 minor league at-bats. He slugged .357 on the farm, but has found this major league stuff pretty easy with a .417 mark (and a .302 average). It won't continue, but who are we to rain on Billy Burns' parade? Rotoworld.com

  • Moss goes 2-for-4 with a home run, 2 runs
    Brandon Moss finished 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Mariners on Thursday.

    Advice: It was his third homer of the past eight games. Cleveland asked for power when acquiring Moss and that's exactly what they've gotten: He's on pace for 28 homers and 97 RBI. Everything else is still making the transit from California, as Moss sports an underwhelming .227/.300/.447 slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • D'Backs to recall Saltalamacchia on Friday
    Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that the Diamondbacks will recall Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Advice: With Tuffy Gosewish dealing with an injury, recalling the veteran backstop seemed the logical conclusions for the Diamondbacks to make. Fantasy owners expecting him to make an impact should note his uninspiring .188/.222/.375 line with two homers, seven RBI and a 13/2 K/BB ratio in nine games at Triple-A Reno. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:09 pm
  • Tigers recall RHP Farmer from Triple-A
    Tigers recalled RHP Buck Farmer from Triple-A Toledo.

    Advice: He'll take the place of Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) in Detroit's rotation and will start against the Angels on Thursday. The 24-year-old struggled in his first stint in the majors last year, but he had a 2.98 ERA and 50/19 K/BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings over nine starts this season in Triple-A. He should be relevant in AL-only leagues as long as he has a rotation spot. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:34 pm
  • Alejandro De Aza designated for assignment
    Orioles designated OF Alejandro De Aza for assignment.

    Advice: He played really well for the O's last year down the stretch of the regular season and in the playoffs, but they've decided to cut him loose after his slow start in 2015. De Aza, who batted leadoff for Baltimore on Opening Day, has hit just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games this season and was seeing his playing time dwindle. He's making $5 million this season, which means he'll almost surely clear waivers. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Moss not in Wednesday's lineup
    Brandon Moss is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a rare day off versus a righty for Moss. David Murphy is starting in right field, while Nick Swisher is handling designated hitter duties. Rotoworld.com

  • Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) draws IBB as PH
    Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) drew an intentional walk as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Cabrera hasn't started the last two games due to a minor groin strain. He expects to be back in the lineup on Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 5:13 am
  • Ross Detwiler (shoulder) an option for Sat.
    The Rangers are considering activating Ross Detwiler (shoulder) from the disabled list to start on Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Out with left shoulder inflammation, Detwiler threw an extended bullpen session on Tuesday that went well. The Rangers would ideally like to give him at least one rehab start, but Phil Klein was awful in his last start so the club is considering bringing Detwiler back early. "We continue to assess where we’re at," manager Jeff Banister said. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera (groin) not in Tuesday's lineup
    Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Mariners.

    Advice: Cabrera made an early exit Sunday with a mild groin strain and will now miss his second straight game. Tim Beckham will start at shortstop Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Alejandro De Aza goes hitless against Astros
    Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-3 from the ninth spot in the Orioles order on Monday.

    Advice: De Aza is just 8-for-42 in May (.190), bringing his overall average down to .216. He's already lost some playing time against right-handers, and it looks like he's in position to lose more to David Lough and Travis Snider. Rotoworld.com

    Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) expects to return Tuesday.

    Advice: Cabrera is out of the Rays' starting lineup on Monday night against the Mariners after leaving Sunday's game with a groin strain. The strain is of the minor variety. Rotoworld.com

    Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) is not in the Rays' starting lineup on Monday night versus the Mariners.

    Advice: Cabrera was forced from Sunday's series finale against the A's with a mild groin strain. He's considered day-to-day. Tim Beckham is at shortstop on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Tulowitzki not in Rockies' lineup on Monday
    Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' starting lineup Monday against the Reds.

    Advice: Daniel Descalso will fill in at shortstop for the Rockies in the afternoon opener at Great American Ball Park. It's just a day of rest for Tulo, who's batting .235/.254/.294 through 71 plate appearances in May. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:16 am
  • Cabrera leaves with mild groin strain Sunday
    Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Athletics with a mild groin strain.

    Advice: Cabrera felt a pop in his groin area while scurrying back to second base in the seventh inning. While he's sore, he thinks he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list and should return to the lineup in a couple of days. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:08 pm
  • Burns homers, scores 3 runs in an A's win
    Billy Burns went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a stolen base, and three runs scored in Sunday's victory over the Rays.

    Advice: Burns led off the game with a solo home run to right field off of Erasmo Ramirez, serving as his first career long ball. He also singled twice and stole a base en route to scoring two more runs. The speedy outfielder has been a spark plug at the top of the Athletics' lineup, batting .309/.356/.395 with seven stolen bases in nine attempts. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:04 pm
  • Buck Farmer to start for Tigers on Thursday
    Buck Farmer will be recalled to start for the Tigers on Thursday in Anaheim.

    Advice: Farmer is taking Kyle Lobstein's (shoulder) spot in the rotation. The 24-year-old was knocked around during his time with the big club last season but is off to a great start this year at Triple-A Toledo with a 2.98 ERA and 50 strikeouts over 51 1/3 innings. He could be worth a shot in AL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:23 am
  • Kennedy allows two runs in loss to Dodgers
    Ian Kennedy allowed two earned runs over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Joc Pederson slugged a solo shot off Kennedy in the bottom of the first and then Justin Turner smacked an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth. Kennedy was otherwise sharp, yielding only six total hits and zero walks while striking out six Los Angeles hitters. The 30-year-old will carry a 2-4 record, 6.11 ERA, and 1.39 WHIP into his next start at home against the Pirates. He's been very inconsistent this season, but better results should be coming.

    Saturday, 9:27 pm
  • Iannetta smacks three-run homer vs. BoSox
    Chris Iannetta connected for a three-run homer and drew two walks in Friday's blowout win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: His three-run blast was the big blow in a nine-run fifth inning for the Angels. Iannetta got off to a miserable start this season, but he has shown signs of life in recent days by going 8-for-18 (.444) with two home runs, two doubles, and seven RBI over his last five games. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:14 pm
  • Moss homers, knocks in three vs. Reds
    Brandon Moss went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, and a walk in a win over the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: Moss blasted a solo homer in the third inning and added a two-run double one inning later. The 31-year-old has three home runs and 13 RBI through 18 games this month, but he continues to have issues making contact. He's batting just .233 through 33 games this season while striking out 27 percent of the time. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:47 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera not in Rays' lineup Thurs.
    Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the Rays' starting lineup Thursday evening against the Athletics.

    Advice: Nick Franklin will get his first start at shortstop this season. Cabrera is just getting a day of rest. Rotoworld.com

  • McCutchen homers, but Pirates fall in 13th
    Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, but the Pirates fell in 13 innings to the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: McCutchen knotted the game up at 3-3 with an eighth-inning opposite-field home run off of Blaine Boyer. It's number five on the year for the outfielder, who has started to look much better at the plate. He's batting .238/.333/.399 with 23 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:12 pm
  • Fien (shoulder) cleared to begin rehab at AAA
    Casey Fien (shoulder) has been cleared to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Fien made it through another bullpen session Wednesday at Target Field. The 31-year-old right-hander should be back in the Twins' bullpen by the end of this month. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:11 pm
  • Moss blasts sixth homer in win over White Sox
    Brandon Moss hit his sixth home run of the season in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Moss took reliever Zach Putnam deep in the eighth inning. The homer was the first baseman's first since May 6. He's got six homers and 24 RBI through 35 games thus far. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:57 pm
  • Cabrera lifts second home run in win over ATL
    Asdrubal Cabrera hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Cabrera hit a solo shot off Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz in the fourth inning, his only hit in four at-bats. Cabrera was given a prime opportunity early in the season, batting third for 23 games for manager Kevin Cash, but he failed to capitalize and has now been moved lower in the order. The infielder is batting just .214 with his two homers and 11 RBI in 39 games. Rotoworld.com
