  • Jansen escapes jam to grab his 14th save
    Kenley Jansen got into a ninth inning jam and escaped, converting his 14th save in Monday's 10-7 victory over the Phillies.

    Advice: Jansen walked Carlos Ruiz and allowed a single to Cody Asche to bring the tying run to the plate with no outs. He struck out Domonic Brown, got Jeff Francoeur to fly out, and struck out Andres Blanco to end the game. Jansen had allowed runs in each of his previous three performances. The hard-throwing right-hander is 14-for-15 in save chances with a 1.83 ERA and a 34/2 K/BB ratio in 19 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • O'Sullivan hammered in a loss to the Dodgers
    Sean O'Sullivan threw a career-high 123 pitches in 5 1/3 innings, yielding seven runs (six earned) but got a no-decision as the Phillies lost to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: The Phillies backed him up with plenty of run support, but it went for naught. Yasmani Grandal struck the big blow, swatting a three-run home run to tie the game at 6-6 in the fifth inning. Overall, he relented eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out three. O'Sullivan has an unsightly 6.08 ERA with a 1.61 WHIP and a 35/20 K/BB ratio over 71 innings. He'll close out the first half with a start in San Francisco against the Giants. Rotoworld.com

  • Rollins has a productive game vs. former team
    Jimmy Rollins knocked in the game-winning hit against his former team, going 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a pair of runs scored in Monday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: With the game knotted at 7-7 in the seventh inning, Rollins drove a two-run single to left-center. He later scored on Joc Pederson's double. The veteran shortstop has not been productive in his first year with the Dodgers, batting .212/.266/.324 with seven home runs and 26 RBI. Even his speed has waned, as he's been successful in only six of 13 stolen base attempts. Rotoworld.com

The backstop has homered three times and knocked in eight runs in his last six games. As a result, he is now hitting .271/.384/.507 with 13 home runs and 34 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Hisashi Iwakuma, making his first start since April 20, yielded five runs in five innings in Monday's 12-5 loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: The first four runs each came as a result of a solo home run, hit by Nick Castellanos, Victor Martinez, J.D. Martinez, and Yoenis Cespedes.

Overall, he surrendered eight hits and three walks while striking out four. Simon has been abysmal over his last four starts, sporting a 10.18 ERA. On the season, the right-hander has a 4.18 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and a 74/33 K/BB ratio in 97 innings. He matches up with the Twins in Minnesota next. Rotoworld.com

    Logan Morrison went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run as the Mariners dropped Monday's contest against the Tigers.

    Advice: Morrison's three-run blast off of Alfredo Simon in the fifth inning gave the Mariners a 5-3 lead, but it didn't last long. The first baseman has been subpar at the dish this year considering his position, as he is hitting .236/.308/.392 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Martinez homers, scores three runs in a win

  • Felix Doubront to start on Tuesday
    Felix Doubront has officially been confirmed as the Blue Jays' starter on Tuesday in Chicago.

    Advice: It had been the assumption that he was taking the ball as long as he wasn't need in relief the last couple days, and he was not. Doubront posted a 2.44 ERA and 43/18 K/BB ratio over 48 innings at Triple-A Buffalo and allowed one run over 2 1/3 relief frames last Friday with the big club. Rotoworld.com

  • Soler doubles in two-hit effort but Cubs lose
    Jorge Soler went 2-for-3 with a double, but the Cubs lost Monday's game 6-0 to the Cardinals.

  • Wong adds 2 hits, RBI, stolen base in a win
    Kolten Wong did a little bit of everything in Monday's win against the Cubs, going 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored, an a stolen base.

    Advice: Wong was mired in a slump, entering the game 2-for-20 in his last six games. He added what was at the time a crucial insurance run, singling in Jason Heyward in the seventh inning to make it 2-0. He scored as part of a four-run ninth inning as well. The second baseman, snubbed for the NL All-Star team, is hitting .281/.339/.444 with nine home runs, 36 RBI, 43 runs scored, and eight stolen bases. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Lackey hurls 7 shutout innings to beat Cubs
    John Lackey hurled seven shutout innings to earn the win against the Cubs on Monday.

    Advice: Opposing starter Jon Lester was attempting to throw a no-hitter, but Lackey was still able to outlast him. He limited the Cubs to six hits and a walk while striking out four. Aside from one horrific start on June 8, Lackey has been brilliant this season, sporting a 3.09 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and an 81/27 K/BB ratio in 110 2/3 innings. He makes one more first half start in Pittsburgh against the Pirates ahead of the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com

  • Lester gets 1st career hit, flirts with no-no
    Jon Lester brought a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but ultimately lost it and the game on Monday after giving up two unearned runs in seven innings against the Cardinals.

    Advice: The highlight of the game may have been Jon Lester ending a career-long 0-for-66 skid at the plate when he beat out an infield single in the second inning. He brought a no-hit bid into the seventh inning but lost it when Jhonny Peralta, fittingly, reached on an infield single. Kris Bryant later committed an error, which set up two unearned runs. Lester allowed two hits overall, walked two, and struck out eight on the evening. Lester has pitched quite well after a tough April, owning a 3.48 ERA on the year with a 1.28 WHIP and a 101/30 K/BB ratio in 103 1/3 innings. He wraps up his first half with a home start against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com

  • Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) back from disabled list
    Mariners activated RHP Hisashi Iwakuma from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: The right-hander has been sidelined since late April due to a strained lat muscle.

Fantasy owners can probably feel free to go ahead and ride with him. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:54 pm
  • No restrictions to be placed on Iwakuma (lat)
    According to Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon, there will be "no restrictions" on Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) when he returns to start against the Tigers on Monday.

    Advice: Iwakuma last started on April 20. While McClendon and the team are not placing any restrictions on Iwakuma, it's reasonable to assume that he'll be at least be relatively limited in the number of pitches he throws in his first few starts back. He sported a 6.61 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 11/3 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings and three starts prior to the DL stint. Rotoworld.com

    Adrian Gonzalez was removed from Sunday's contest against the Mets after being hit by a pitch on his hand.

    Advice: Gonzalez remained in the game until his next at-bat, where Alex Guerrero pinch-hit for him. He's likely headed for precautionary X-rays to rule out any structural damage and the Dodgers should have an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs activate Jorge Soler from disabled list
    Cubs activated OF Jorge Soler from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Soler went just 2-for-13 with four strikeouts during his four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Iowa, but his ankle is feeling fine and that's all the Cubs really care about. The youngster missed just over a month of action with a sprained left ankle. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez smacks solo homer to help lead win
    Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Gonzalez took Mets starter Matt Harvey deep for his 15th homer of the year in the fifth inning and with the RBI, Gonzalez has now batted in an even 50 for the season. His season-long triple-slash looks solid at .293/.367/.514, but it should be noted that after a molten hot April, he's posted progressively lower numbers each of the last two months. In June, he hit just .248/.320/.381. Rotoworld.com

  • Victor Martinez not an option at first base
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Saturday that Victor Martinez is not considered an option to play first base in the wake of the Miguel Cabrera injury.

    Advice: The Tigers are left scrambling at first base after losing their best hitter for the next six weeks, but Ausmus said he was concerned about trusting Martinez there for an extended period of time. It sounds as though they'll roll with a combination of Alex Avila, Andrew Romine and Jefry Marte for the time being. Rotoworld.com

  • Iwakuma to rejoin Mariners rotation on Monday
    Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) will rejoin the Mariners rotation on Monday against the Tigers.

  • Wong struggles in 0-for-4 game
    Kolten Wong couldn't find any traction against the Padres on Friday, finishing the game 0-for-4.

    Advice: Wong struggled on Friday, but it's not indicative of what he's done on the whole this season. His triple-slash of .283/.341/.451 stands in the upper tier of his position offensively and he's hit nine homers while driving in 36 runs and scoring 42. At just 24 years of age, there's still room for offensive improvement here. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:09 pm
  • Victor Martinez collects three hits in win
    Victor Martinez went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored on Friday as the Tigers topped the Blue Jays 8-6.

    Advice: Since returning from the disabled list on June 19, his bat has certainly perked up, hitting .321 (18-for-56) with a homer and 10 RBI. With Miguel Cabrera leaving Friday's game with a calf injury, Martinez could be required to shoulder a large load in the Tigers' offense in the coming weeks. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:21 pm
  • Iwakuma (lat) won't be back this weekend
    The Mariners will not activate Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) from the disabled list to start on Sunday.

    Advice: Mike Montgomery will stay on turn and take the ball Sunday. The Mariners have not made a decision on the next step for Iwakuma, but it's possible he'll make another rehab start. He could also rejoin Seattle's rotation early next week. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:53 pm
  • Felix Doubront called up from Triple-A
    Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Felix Doubront from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The Jays need a fifth starter following the demotion of Matt Boyd, although it's unclear whether Doubront will immediately be thrust into the rotation. The left-hander has earned a shot with some nice work at Buffalo, where he's posted a 2.44 ERA and 43/18 K/BB ratio over 48 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:37 am
  • Soler to play nine innings at Triple-A Friday

  • Jansen notches 13th save in win over D-Backs
    Kenley Jansen allowed a late run but still managed to pick up his 13th save of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Jansen trotted into the game with his team up 4-2. The two-run cushion turned out to be necessary. After striking out the first batter of the frame, Jansen coughed up a solo homer to David Peralta before recording the last two outs minus any issues. Jansen's allowed runs in each of his last two appearances, but owners should look to a 13-for-14 save chance record, 1.53 ERA and stellar 30/1 K/BB ratio over 17 2/3 innings rather than these little blips of trouble on the radar. As long as he's healthy, he remains one of the top closers in the game. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:16 pm
  • Jon Lester goes seven scoreless
    Jon Lester blanked the Mets for seven innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lester struck out seven and walked none in one of his best starts as a Cub. Granted, the Mets aren't really hitting anyone at the moment, but as difficult of a year as Lester has had, he'll take what he can get. Unfortunately, that didn't include a win, as the Cubs didn't take the lead until the 11th. Rotoworld.com

  • Simon clobbered by the Pirates in a loss
    Alfredo Simon was shelled in a loss to the Pirates on Wednesday, serving up six runs in 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Simon allowed 15 hits, the second time a pitcher has done that this season, joining Tim Hudson. Hudson and Simon are the only two starters to have accomplished the ignominious feat since the start of the 2012 season. Simon did refrain from issuing any walks and he struck out seven, so there's that. The right-hander has a 3.94 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, and a 70/30 K/BB ratio in 91 1/3 innings. He'll try for better results in a road start against the Mariners. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:39 pm
  • Grandal gets rest against D'backs Wednesday
    Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

    Wednesday, 3:37 pm
  • A-Gonz out of Dodgers' lineup on Wednesday
    Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

  • Jansen allows a run following his first walk
    Kenley Jansen allowed a run but still snagged his 12th save of the season as the Dodgers pulled out a 6-4 victory in 10 innings against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: With two outs, Jansen issued his first walk of the season to his 56th batter. Paul Goldschmidt then punished him for the walk with an RBI double. Jansen bounced back to strike out Yasmany Tomas to end the game. The right-hander is 12-for-13 in save chances this season with a 1.08 ERA and a 28/1 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:00 pm
  • Grandal plates four as Dodgers beat DBacks
    Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's 10-inning win against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Grandal opened the scoring with a two-run home run off of Rubby De La Rosa in the second inning. He added necessary insurance in the 10th inning with a two-run double to make it a 6-3 game. Grandal has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 12 on the season along with 31 RBI and a .269/.380/.497 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Iwakuma doesn't think blister is big issue
    Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) doesn't think the blister that forced him from his rehab start Tuesday will be an issue.

    Advice: Iwakuma noted that he's had numerous blister problems over the years and that the Mariners' training staff knows how to treat them. It remains to be seen whether the M's share his opinion, but either way this isn't a big setbacks. Iwakuma could rejoin Seattle's rotation as soon as Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Iwakuma (lat) exits rehab start with blister
    Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) had to leave Tuesday's rehab start with Triple-A Tacoma due to a blister on his pitching hand.

    Advice: He pitched well before exiting, allowing just one run on five hits and one walk while striking out six. Iwakuma's splitter has often given him blister issues, but it's unclear at this point if this is a notable setback. Tuesday's rehab start likely was going to be his last, although the Mariners hadn't confirmed as much. More should be known about Iwakuma on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:01 pm
  • Wong not in starting lineup Tuesday
    Kolten Wong is not in Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

    Advice: The Cardinals had a scheduled off-day on Monday, so manager Mike Matheny is likely just using this as an opportunity to give him some extra rest. Pete Kozma will start at second base while Peter Bourjos will bat leadoff. Chris Sale is on the mound for Chicago. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:01 pm
  • Soler (ankle) starts minor league rehab stint
    Jorge Soler (ankle) went 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: "He looked good," said Iowa manager Marty Pevey. "He made a great catch down the right-field line in the bullpen and he got his at-bats in, and we'll build on today's game." Assuming Soler feels good, he's expected to play seven to nine innings on Tuesday and get four at-bats. He's on track to join the Cubs this weekend. Soler has been sidelined for about a month with a left ankle sprain. Rotoworld.com

  • O'Sullivan beat up by the Brewers in a loss
    Sean O'Sullivan didn't have anything working in a loss to the Brewers on Monday, surrendering six runs on 12 hits in five innings.

    Advice: O'Sullivan limited the Brewers to only three runs through five innings, but things fell apart in the sixth inning when he allowed four straight hits before departing. Justin De Fratus came in and allowed two more hits before plugging the leaky ship. Along with the 12 hits, O'Sullivan walked one and struck out three. His ERA moves up to 5.76 with a 1.58 WHIP and a 33/18 K/BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings. Not that fantasy owners care, but he'll take the ball next in Atlanta to face the Braves this weekend.

  • Jansen works around leadoff 2B for 11th save
    Kenley Jansen allowed a leadoff double, but worked around it for his 11th save in Sunday's 2-0 win against the Marlins.

    Advice: Christian Yelich greeted Jansen with a leadoff double, which allowed the Marlins to bring the potential tying run to the plate on three separate occasions. Jansen struck out Adeiny Hechavarria and Marcell Ozuna consecutively before getting Derek Dietrich to foul out to end the contest. Jansen has been utterly dominant since debuting in mid-May, now 11-for-12 in save opportunities with a 0.57 ERA and a 26/0 K/BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 1:20 pm
  • Gonzalez provides 3 hits, RBI in a win
    Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI double in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

    Advice: Gonzalez added some insurance in a low-scoring affair, doubling in the seventh inning to make it a 2-0 ballgame. While no one realistically expected him to maintain a 1.000 OPS over the course of the season, his June swoon has caused his OPS to drop 137 points since the beginning of the month. He's still batting a very productive .297/.371/.518 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    John Lackey allowed two runs over seven innings Friday in a no-decision against the Cubs.

    Advice: Lackey allowed eight hits and three walks, so the Cubs had their share of chances, but he managed to keep the damage to a minimum and keep the Cardinals in the ballgame. He struck out five in the no-decision. The veteran right-hander had a really rough outing in Coors Field earlier this month, but he has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three straight starts since. He'll carry a 3.35 ERA into a start against the Padres next week at home. Rotoworld.com
