  • Starlin Castro not in Friday's lineup
    Starlin Castro is not in the Cubs' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It looks to simply be a day of rest. Addison Russell has slid over to cover shortstop, while Jonathan Herrera is getting a start at second base.

  • David Goforth recalled from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled RHP David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Goforth didn't allow a run in four appearances spanning 2 1/3 innings earlier this season with the Brewers. He'll be a middle reliever.
    Today, 7:00 am
  • Tyler Cravy recalled to from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled RHP Tyler Cravy from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Cravy tossed seven frames of one-run ball in his major league debut last month but was sent back down after the game. He will be used in long relief.
    Today, 6:59 am
  • Doug Bernier outrighted to Triple-A
    Twins sent INF Doug Bernier outright to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Bernier was already in the minors and now he's off the 40-man roster. He had one hit in five at-bats in a brief stay in the majors earlier this season.

  • Dan Straily recalled from Triple-A
    Astros recalled RHP Dan Straily from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Straily will take the ball on Friday against the Red Sox. He owns an uninspiring 4.06 ERA and 1.38 WHIP for Fresno this season, although it's come along with a nice 70/14 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings. He could get a couple starts with the big club until Scott Feldman (knee) is ready to return.

  • Blue Jays have interest in Jeff Samardzija
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jeff Samardzija "is on the list" of the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Samardzija has already been dealt twice over the last year and the impending free agent is likely to be on the move again with the White Sox out of contention. The right-hander has put up a disappointing 4.56 ERA this season, but his stuff looks to be intact and he would be a welcome upgrade to the Blue Jays' rotation.
    Today, 6:10 am
  • Astros, Dodgers, scouting Johnny Cueto
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Astros and Dodgers had two scouts apiece at a recent Johnny Cueto start versus the Mets.

    Advice: Heyman notes that "some of the scouts might have been there doing regular/advance coverage." However, it's no secret that both the Astros and Dodgers are among the clubs interested in the veteran right-hander. The Blue Jays and Yankees are two other teams known to have interest. Cueto has appeared to put his elbow issue behind him and should fetch a nice return for the Reds later this month.

  • Pollock has 2 hits, including HR, in win
    A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored in Thursday's 8-1 win versus the Rockies.

    Advice: Pollock hit his 10th homer of the year off Chris Rusin in the sixth inning. The outfielder has been an unsung fantasy stud so far this year. He's batting .301 and is on pace for 21 homers, 74 RBI, 107 runs and 33 steals. That type of production would threaten for a top-five fantasy outfielder finish.
    Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Rusin allows only 1 ER in loss to the D'Backs
    Chris Rusin allowed six hits and three runs -- one earned -- over six frames in a loss to Arizona on Thursday.

    Advice: Rusin whiffed six and walked two. He's now 3-3 with a 4.27 ERA in 46-plus innings, surpassing expectations, but that will change any day now, as his 1.55 WHIP and 32/14 K/BB rate both portend rough times ahead. Steer clear in fantasy.
    Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Phegley plates a pair in 4-0 win over Seattle
    Josh Phegley went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Phegley has been stellar in a part-time role for the A's, slashing .280/.333/.523 in 107 at-bats. He's also been an asset throwing out potential base robbers.
    Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Elias gives up 3 runs in loss to the A's
    Roenis Elias surrendered three runs on three hits across six innings in a loss to the A's on Thursday.

    Advice: He struck out seven and walked one. Elias was touched for two runs in the first, mostly settling in for a smooth five innings to come after that. Unfortunately, Scott Kazmir put up eight zeroes across from him, dropping Elias to 4-6 with a 4.27 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.
    Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Venable hits go-ahead homer in extras
    Will Venable slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in a 5-3 win over the Cardinals in 11 innings on Thursday.

    Advice: The Cardinals tied the game in the fifth inning, but both sides remained scoreless from there until Venable took Carlos Villanueva deep in extras. After a disappointing 2014 season, the 32-year-old is batting .263/.324/.421 with six homers and six steals over 66 games this season.
    Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Cooney handed no-decision vs. Padres
    Tim Cooney allowed three runs (two earned) over six innings in a no-decision against the Padres.

    Advice: Cooney allowed four hits (including two home runs) and walked two while striking out six. He kept the Cardinals in the game, which is exactly what they were asking for. Jaime Garcia (groin) is only expected to miss one start, so Cooney will likely be sent right back down to Triple-A.
    Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Solarte ejected from Thursday's game
    Yangervis Solarte was ejected from Thursday's game in the sixth inning for arguing a check-swing call.

    Advice: Solarte went 1-for-3 with a solo homer before home plate umpire Bob Davidson gave him the boot. His solo shot in the second inning snapped a 22-inning scoreless streak for San Diego.
    Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Cards call up LHP Cooney from Triple-A
    Cardinals recalled LHP Tim Cooney from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Cooney will start Thursday in place of Jaime Garcia, who came down with some cramping in his left groin. It's likely to just be a spot start, so he figures to be sent down to Triple-A after the game.
    Yesterday, 1:25 pm
  • Cooney to make spot start on Thursday
    Tim Cooney will make a spot start for the Cardinals on Thursday night against the Padres.

    Advice: It is Jaime Garcia's turn in the rotation, but he has been scratched with cramping in his left groin. Cooney struggled earlier this season in his major league debut against the Phillies and doesn't look like an overly attractive play Thursday versus San Diego.
    Yesterday, 5:55 am
  • Starlin Castro delivers in extras for Cubs
    Starlin Castro knocked in the go-ahead run with an infield single as the Cubs beat the Mets 2-0 in 11 innings Wednesday.

    Advice: Castro legged out his little chopper to third, scoring Anthony Rizzo in the process. The Cubs then added a second run on Miguel Montero's single. Castro also doubled earlier in the game. It was just hit seventh double of the year after he had 33 in 2014 and 34 in 2013.
    Wednesday, 7:56 pm
  • Straily set to make Astros debut on Friday
    Dan Straily will start for the Astros against the Red Sox on Friday.

    Advice: Straily owns a 4.06 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 70/14 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings with Triple-A Fresno this year. The 26-year-old will replace Brett Oberholtzer in the Astros' rotation.

  • Cueto spins eight innings of one-run ball
    Johnny Cueto held the Twins to just one run over eight innings while striking out eight in a 2-1 victory Wednesday.

    Advice: Brian Dozier came around to score after smacking a leadoff double down the left-field line in the sixth inning, but that's all the Twins were able to scrape together against Cueto. In six starts since returning from an elbow issue, Cueto boasts a 2.52 ERA and 40/8 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings. In other words, he's looked like his normal self. The righty takes on the Nationals on the road next.
    Wednesday, 12:53 pm
  • Shane Robinson leaves after HBP on elbow
    Shane Robinson left Wednesday's game against the Reds after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch.

    Advice: Robinson stayed in to run the bases after being pelted by the Johnny Cueto offering, but he appeared to be in a lot of pain so it's no surprise he eventually exited. It's unclear whether he'll need to have X-rays.

  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI.
    Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • Shane Robinson scratched due to the flu
    Shane Robinson was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup due to the flu.

    Advice: He should be fine in a day or two. Danny Santana took Robinson's spot in the lineup and played center field, while Eddie Rosario moved over to left.

  • Johnny Cueto on Houston's radar
    The Houston Chronicle reports Johnny Cueto is the "most attractive potential acquisition" for the Astros.

    Advice: He's also being pursued by the Blue Jays, Dodgers and Yankees. Cueto is in the last year of his contract and is unlikely to re-sign with Cincinnati. Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle said the Astros have also done "scouting homework" on starters Matt Garza, Cole Hamels, Scott Kazmir, Mike Leake, Kyle Lohse and Jeff Samardzija. Houston's rotation ranks 14th in strikeouts (365) and 16th in ERA (4.07).
    Monday, 8:52 am
  • Starlin Castro goes hitless in loss to Cards
    Starlin Castro went hitless in four at-bats as the Cubs fell to the Cardinals on a rainy night in St. Louis on Sunday.

    Advice: He finished the night 0-for-4 with a strikeout. Castro has been a bit of a disappointment at the dish this season, slashing just .260/.292/.338 with five homers and 35 RBI.
    Sunday, 10:07 pm
  • Jeff Samardzija fades late in loss to Tigers
    Jeff Samardzija was terrific for most of Sunday but lost it late in a loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: "Shark" dominated the Tigers for seven shutout innings but came apart in the eighth. Or, rather, he was hung out to dry by White Sox manager Robin Ventura in the eighth. After hitting Ian Kinsler with a bases-loaded pitch, Samardzija looked to empty the tank when he bounced back to strike out Miguel Cabrera. Ventura stuck with the righty, though, and Victor Martinez cleared the bases with a double. It's been a maddeningly inconsistent season for Samardzija, who now has a 4.56 ERA and just one win over his last seven starts. He'll take on the Orioles next weekend.
    Sunday, 1:31 pm
  • A.J. Pollock sitting out on Sunday
    A.J. Pollock is absent from the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to simply be a day of rest. David Peralta is in center field with Pollock out, while Cliff Pennington is covering left.
    Sunday, 10:12 am
  • Rusin allows 10 hits, five runs vs. Giants
    Chris Rusin allowed 10 hits and five runs -- two earned -- over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Saturday.

    Advice: Rusin was twice given multiple-run leads only to hand them back. It was the third time in his last four starts that Rusin has allowed nine hits or more, but he narrowly escaped taking his third loss in his last four games. Rusin remains 3-2 with a 4.69 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. He'll look for a better result Thursday against the Diamondbacks.
    Saturday, 4:33 pm
  • Cueto gives up two runs in loss
    Johnny Cueto gave up two runs over six innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

    Advice: It was his first start since last Wednesday, as the Reds decided to give him some extra rest for his elbow. Cueto held the Mets to one run over the first four innings before walking three batters in the fifth inning to force in a run. He gave up just two hits in all, including a leadoff homer to Curtis Granderson. This was his first loss since May 19. The Reds' ace now owns a 2.98 ERA through 14 starts this season. If he can stay healthy, he's highly likely to be traded by July 31.
    Friday, 6:44 pm
  • Cueto (elbow) will make his start on Friday
    Johnny Cueto (elbow) will make his scheduled start on Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: Cueto hasn't pitched since June 17 after having his last start pushed back due to stiffness in his pitching elbow. He'll likely be pitching in front of representatives of several different clubs, as Cueto is one of the biggest names likely to be moved before next month's trade deadline.
    Thursday, 4:20 pm
  • Pollock has two hits, RBI in loss to Rox
    A.J. Pollock went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: It was another productive day for Pollock, who also drew a walk, scored a run, and stole a base. The 27-year-old continues to be a five-category stud for fantasy owners this season, batting .307 with nine home runs, 35 RBI, 15 stolen bases, and 47 runs scored over 71 games.
    Thursday, 4:00 pm
  • Castro (family) scratched from Cubs' lineup
    Starlin Castro has been scratched from the Cubs' starting lineup Thursday versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Castro is headed to a local hospital in Chicago to welcome the birth of his second child. Addison Russell will start at shortstop and bat fifth for the Cubs. Jonathan Herrera is playing second base and batting ninth.
    Thursday, 8:50 am
  • Astros 'remain interested' in Jeff Samardzija
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Astros "remain interested" in Jeff Samardzija.

    Advice: Rosenthal first connected Houston to Samardzija back in mid-May, noting that Astros scouts had been monitoring the 30-year-old right-hander's outings. And they still are. Samardzija owns an ugly 4.53 ERA in 101 1/3 innings this season for Chicago, but Rosenthal notes that the White Sox defense is partly to blame. He'd probably fare much better from a fantasy perspective in Houston, at least in the win expectancy department. Rosenthal also connects the Astros to A's left-hander Scott Kazmir.
    Thursday, 5:42 am
  • Elias bombed for 7 runs in 4th inning of loss
    Roenis Elias was shelled in a loss to the Royals on Wednesday, yielding seven runs on five hits across 3 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Elias breezed through three shutout innings until the wheels fell off abruptly in the fourth. The 26-year-old left-hander struck out two and walked one in the clunker. He'll tote a 4.25 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his next start in San Diego.
    Wednesday, 10:02 pm
  • Morosi: Royals inquiring on Cueto, Leake
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi and Ken Rosenthal report that the Royals have inquired to the Reds about the availability of Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake.

    Advice: The Royals have gotten the fewest innings of any team in baseball out of their starters, so upgrading their rotation is a must if they hope to make another postseason run. As one of the best pitchers in baseball, Cueto would certainly cost much more than Leake, although he's dealt with an elbow injury recently. The Yankees and Tigers are also known to have interest in Cueto.
    Wednesday, 5:45 am
  • Josh Phegley belts fourth home run
    Josh Phegley doubled in a pair of runs and smacked a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Phegley let a run score on a passed ball in the game, but he certainly made up for it with his bat. The A's have received incredible production at the plate from their catchers this season, as Stephen Vogt is going to be an All-Star and Phegley is hitting .297/.350/.538 with four homers as his backup.
    Tuesday, 8:38 pm
  • Samardzija holds Twins to two runs in victory
    Jeff Samardzija limited the Twins to two runs over seven innings in a win on Tuesday.

    Advice: Samardzija scattered eight hits and a walk over his seven innings, striking out seven in the outing. The right-hander has had a bit of a return to form in recent starts, as Tuesday was his third straight going seven innings with three or fewer runs allowed. Despite that, the win was his first since May 22. Samardzija is 5-4 with a 4.53 ERA and 1.33 WHIP heading into Sunday's showdown with the Tigers in Detroit.
