  • Cliff Pennington comes up big as Arizona wins
    Cliff Pennington delivered a game-tying single in the sixth and a game-ending sac fly in the 10th as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 4-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Pennington remains a fine utilityman, but the Diamondbacks haven't gotten a ton of use from him this year with Nick Ahmed playing well at short and Aaron Hill acting as the primary fallback at second and third. The runs batted in he collected tonight were just his sixth and seventh of the season, and it was also only his second multihit game. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Barnes goes 0-for-3 against Arizona
    Brandon Barnes went 0-for-3 before being removed as part of a double-switch Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Barnes should start losing some time now that the Rockies have brought Drew Stubbs back to the majors. Barnes still has a decent .276 average, but it's going down quickly and he doesn't bring much else to the table. Rotoworld.com

  • Wilmer Flores goes 3-for-4 in Mets' win
    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with an RBI as the Mets beat the Dodgers 2-1 on Friday.

    Advice: Flores singled in the Mets' first run in the fourth and collected an infield single during the ninth-inning rally that decided the game. The three hits match his total from his previous six starts combined. He does have 10 homers this season, but getting on base just hasn't been a strength for him. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Noah Syndergaard strong for six innings
    Noah Syndergaard was lifted after allowing one run and two hits in six innings Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Syndergaard only walked two, but it still took him 107 pitches to get through six. Needless to say, the Mets weren't going to give him a chance to match last week's eight innings of one-run ball against the Reds. Syndergaard lowered his ERA to 3.38. He's allowed one or no earned runs in six of his 10 starts. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:50 pm
  • Bourn drives in three to help down Pirates
    Michael Bourn went 2-for-3 with three RBI in Friday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Bourn doubled in a run in the fourth inning, then punched in two more with a single in the eighth to give his team a three run lead and some much needed breathing room. They would ultimately win 5-2. While he does have five hits in his last 11 at-bats, Bourn is still hitting just .234/.305/.284 for the year. He only has 10 extra-base hits and has yet to connect on his first home run. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Michael Cuddyer strikes out as pinch-hitter
    Michael Cuddyer struck out as a pinch-hitter Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It was his first appearance since leaving Tuesday's game with a sore knee. It's possible he'll rejoin the starting lineup on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Marte strikes out twice in hit-less effort
    Starling Marte went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Friday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: The 0-for-4 jaunt snapped Marte's eight-game hitting streak. It's been a career best season to this point for the outfielder, who will set a personal best for homers when he hits his next one (he's currently at 13, same as the number he hit all of last year). He's hitting .284/.333/.465 through 299 at-bats in 2015. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Bauer picks up win in rain-shortened outing
    Trevor Bauer locked down the Pirates on Friday, hurling 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball to earn his seventh win of the season.

    Advice: Bauer could have conceivably pitched deeper into the game were it not for a rain delay, which came in the seventh inning. At that point, the right-hander had only thrown 74 pitches. He would not return to the contest when festivities resumed. Bauer struck out three and walked one, with both runs against him coming home via a homer by Andrew McCutchen. Bauer now holds a 3.88 ERA and 1.25 WHIP and will look to improve to 8-5 in a home showdown with the Astros next time he takes the ball. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:29 pm
  • Morton tosses quality start against Pirates
    Charlie Morton provided a quality start in Friday's loss to the Indians, yielding three runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: Morton struck out three and walked three in the outing. Runs scored in the second and fourth innings, when Morton allowed a two-run homer to Brandon Moss and an RBI double to Michael Bourne, respectively. The loss dropped him to 6-2 on the season. In addition to the solid record, Morton holds a 4.30 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Padres. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Gyorko's big day propels Padres over Cards
    Jedd Gyorko hit a game-tying homer in the seventh inning and a go-ahead RBI single in the ninth to help lead the Padres to a 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: Gyorko was just called up on June 30 to help fill in for the injured Cory Spangenberg (knee). He showed his worth on Friday when he homered off of the ever-dominant Michael Wacha in the seventh inning to tie the game at 1-1. He then helped ensure things wouldn't move to extras when he singled home Yangervis Solarte in the ninth inning to put the Padres up 2-1. Gyorko hit .283/.368/.500 with four home runs in 15 games for Triple-A El Paso after being sent down in early June and should see his share of playing time in the near future, though there's little to love on the fantasy front here. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Solarte triples in win over Cardinals
    Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Friday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Don't expect to see Solarte legging out triples on a regular basis. The three-bagger was his first of the season and just the second of his career. He's hitting .249/.299/.367 with three homers and 29 RBI for the 2015 campaign and shouldn't be relied upon in fantasy formats, despite the newfound existence of wheels on those feet. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Evan Scribner gives up two homers
    Evan Scribner gave up two homers in two innings of relief Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: The home run ball is Scribner's bugaboo, and while he's one candidate to step in as Oakland's closer once Tyler Clippard is traded, those flyball tendencies might cause Edward Mujica to get the job instead. Scribner has given up nine homers this year, which is why his ERA stands at 3.64 despite a crazy 44/3 K/BB ratio in 42 innings. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Brad Miller delivers eighth homer
    Brad Miller collected his eighth homer and his 12th double Friday against the A's.

    Advice: It's Miller's second homer in four games. His struggles in limited action against left-handers have taken a toll on his numbers, but he's hitting .267/.357/.487 versus righties. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Mark Canha goes 2-for-4, knocks in three
    Mark Canha went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI against the Mariners on Friday.

    Advice: The right-handed-hitting Canha keeps starting against lefties, even though he's struggled mightily against them this year. He did have a single against J.A. Happ tonight, but his big hit was a two-run double off right-handed reliever Carson Smith. All eight of his homers this season have come off righties. It's probably a big fluke, but the weird platoon splits are making it difficult for the A's to use him. Rotoworld.com

  • Heyward singles in quiet offensive game
    Jason Heyward went 1-for-3 with a walk and a single in Friday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Heyward's single was one of just four hits that the Cardinals managed as a team. The once highly-touted outfielder looked dead in the water a month ago, but he absolutely melted the ball in June, hitting .326/.365/.517 with four homers and 14 RBI for the month. After a rough April, he's starting to look more and more like the player that the Cardinals were hoping for when they acquired him in the off-season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Wacha hurls seven innings of one-run ball
    Michael Wacha continued to throw like one of the best pitchers in baseball on Friday, holding the Padres to just one run over seven innings in a 2-1 loss.

    Advice: Wacha struck out six and walked just one. Only a Jedd Gyorko solo homer in the seventh inning prevented Wacha from the shutout. It also prevented him from picking up his 11th win of the year, as the homer tied the game at 1-1. With a 2.66 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 10-3 record, he's a near lock for the All-Star Game and should be in the Cy Young discussion at the end of the season assuming he stays healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Cashner holds Cards to one run over six IP
    Andrew Cashner pitched well on Friday, limiting the Cardinals to one run on three hits over six innings.

    Advice: Cashner struck out three and walked three in the contest. Despite the well-pitched outing, he was unable to come away with a decision, as the Padres would not pull ahead for the win until the ninth inning. Cashner is the owner of a 4.06 ERA and 1.39 WHIP and will carry those numbers in to his next start, a road date with the Pirates. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Cain doubles, singles twice in leading Royals
    Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with a double and two singles in Friday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Cain was all over the place in this contest. He would drive in a run with a single in the third inning and score both the game-tying run in the eighth and the game-winning run in the 10th as the Royals improved to 45-32 for the season. He's now racked up nine hits in his last 16 at-bats. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Morales doubles and singles in extras win
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Friday's 3-2, 10-inning win over the Twins.

    Advice: Morales' RBI single in the eighth inning might have been the most important hit of the game, as it knotted the score at 2-2 and allowed the Royals to eventually win in extras without having to face lock-down closer Glen Perkins. For his part, Morales is slashing .286/.347/.466 with 10 homers and 51 RBI in what's been a nice season to this point. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Dozier fails to find hit in five at-bats
    Brian Dozier went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Ouchie. Rough game aside, Dozier is putting in a fine season and is currently slashing .260/.331/.514 with 16 homers, 40 RBI and seven steals. His combination of speed and power make him one of the best fantasy chips at his position. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Sano drives in first career run with single
    Miguel Sano collected his first major league RBI in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: The all-universe prospect singled home Eddie Rosario in the second inning. He later added a double to finish 2-for-4. Sano did strike out twice, but Twin fans should be happy to see that he seems to be fitting in just fine to start his major league career. Sano hit .274/.374/.544 with 15 homers and 48 RBI through 66 Double-A games prior to his call-up. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Guthrie pitches into eighth against Twins
    Jeremy Guthrie pitched a strong game in earning a no-decision against the Twins on Friday, allowing two runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Despite Guthrie's strong performance, the pitcher did not receive a decision in the game, as the contest was knotted at 2-2 until the Royals snapped the tie in the bottom of the 10th inning. Guthrie struck out four and walked one, lowering his ERA to a still-awful 5.42. He also holds a 1.46 WHIP. None of these numbers are good, obviously. Guthrie will try to repeat his results from Friday when he faces the Rays in a home start next Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Altuve collects three hits to lead hit parade
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Friday's 12-8, 10-inning win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Altuve's RBI single in the seventh inning scored two runs and gave the diminutive second baseman 35 batted in for the season. He's now put up back-to-back three-hit games and is working with a .303/.348/.424 slash-line for the year. With 90 hits through 74 games, Altuve is a near-lock to finish with 200+ hits as long as he stays healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Twins option Alex Meyer back to Triple-A
    Twins optioned RHP Alex Meyer to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: The 25-year-old struggled in his two appearances with the big league club, allowing five runs in 2 2/3 innings (16.88 ERA). He will continue to work out of the bullpen at Triple-A and should make his way back to the Twins at some point this summer. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Cuddyer (knee) not in Mets lineup on Friday
    Michael Cuddyer (knee) remained out of the Mets' starting lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

    Advice: The veteran outfielder is still expected to avoid the disabled list. He received a cortisone injection on Wednesday and is expected to return to action at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:11 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. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:05 pm
  • Sano has infield single in MLB debut
    Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with an infield single in his major league debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano lined out to center field in his first at-bat before striking out swinging in his next two chances. The infield single came in the top of the ninth inning. The Twins plan to use the 22-year-old as their regular designated hitter for the time being, so his power upside is well worth the flier in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:36 pm
  • Brad Miller to remain M's starting shortstop
    Despite the return of Chris Taylor, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon clarified Thursday that Brad Miller will remain the team's starting shortstop.

    Advice: The 25-year-old has struggled at the dish this season, slashing .238/.319/.403 with seven homers and 22 RBI in his 74 games. It sounds like it's a vote of confidence from the skipper, but if Taylor continues to mash the baseball he'll find his way into more playing time soon enough. Rotoworld.com

  • Sano batting sixth in MLB debut Thursday
    Miguel Sano will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth in his MLB debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano was called up Thursday after batting .274/.374/.544 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI over 66 games this season with Double-A Chattanooga. The 22-year-old offers massive power potential from the right side of the plate. He's expected to serve as the primary DH now that Kennys Vargas has been demoted, so he's well worth a flier in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:41 pm
  • Michael Cuddyer (knee) might be headed to DL
    Michael Cuddyer (knee) remained out of the Mets' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

    Advice: He got an injection Wednesday and may need a few days to recover. Manager Terry Collins said Cuddyer could require a trip to the disabled list if he doesn't improve in the next three days. Eric Campbell and John Mayberry would split time in left field if Cuddyer faces a lengthy absence. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:30 am
  • Twins officially promote prospect Miguel Sano
    Twins recalled INF Miguel Sano from Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Sano will take over as the Twins' regular designated hitter in Thursday's series opener against the Royals. The 22-year-old was sporting a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level and he's a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues for his massive power potential. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:57 am
  • Bourn serving one-game suspension Thursday
    Michael Bourn will serve his one-game suspension Thursday.

    Advice: Bourn was handed the one-game sentence last week for bumping home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi during an argument. Michael Brantley is starting in center field and Mike Aviles is in left field Thursday versus the Rays. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:00 am
  • Jose Altuve goes 3-for-4 in Astros' win
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a HBP, an RBI and two runs scored in the Astros' 6-5 defeat of the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Altuve also swiped a pair of bases. He's hit in 10 straight games to push his average back up to .298. That doesn't quite measure up to last year, but though three months, he's given his fantasy owners exactly what they paid for. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:56 pm
  • Marte homers in a four-hit effort to beat DET
    Starling Marte doubled and homered in a 4-for-5 effort as the Pirates trounced the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Marte's only run and RBI came on his solo home run in the eighth inning, the second of three solo shots in the frame. He's now on a seven-game hitting streak, but entered the game with a .518 OPS in his previous 10 contests. He still has a productive .285/.333/.471 triple-slash line with 13 home runs, 47 RBI, and 15 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:35 pm
  • Twins calling up top prospect Miguel Sano
    MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins are calling up prospect Miguel Sano.

    Advice: Kennys Vargas has already been optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a roster spot. Sano, 22, boasts a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level. He's primarily played third base in the minors, but look for the Twins to use him as their everyday designated hitter. Sano has been a consensus top-20 prospect for going on four years and is worth a shot in every mixed fantasy league for his power potential. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:14 pm
  • Michael Cuddyer (knee) expected to avoid DL
    Michael Cuddyer (knee) isn't expected to require a trip to the disabled list.

    Advice: Cuddyer had to leave Tuesday's game with a left knee injury, but an MRI apparently didn't show any serious damage. The Mets think he'll only have to sit out a few days. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:44 pm
  • Miller homers as Mariners blank the Padres
    Brad Miller launched a two-run home run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mariners shut the Padres out 5-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller took Ian Kennedy out to right-center in the fourth inning for a two-run homer, making it a 4-0 Mariners lead at the time. It's his seventh homer of the season. He looks certain to surpass his career high of 10 set last season. He's also knocked in 22 runs while batting a passable .237/.316/.404. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • Cain doubles twice, collects three hits
    Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with two doubles in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Cain and the Royals' bats were kept pretty well under wraps by Dallas Keuchel, but the outfielder did manage to collect three of the team's eight hits and two of their three extra-base hits on the evening. Alas, they were shut out in the contest. That didn't keep Cain from raising his overall line to .296/.352/.447 with the strong showing. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:32 pm
  • Bourn has two hits, stolen base against Rays
    Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with a stolen base against the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bourn was the only player on either team with multiple hits in the game. The steal was his sixth of the year and first since June 4. A brutal month of June has lowered Bourn's average to .228 with a .298 on-base percentage overall. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:05 pm
  • Cuddyer 'definitely concerned' about knee
    Michael Cuddyer admitted that he was "definitely concerned" about the left knee injury that forced him from Tuesday's game versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Cuddyer said he first felt pain in the knee while running to first base after his first plate appearance, but he wasn't removed until the seventh. The veteran outfielder will undergo an MRI on Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage, but it sounds like a trip to the disabled list could be in the offing. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:56 pm
  • Michael Cuddyer (knee) to have MRI Wed.
    Michael Cuddyer will undergo an MRI on his left knee Wednesday.

    Advice: Cuddyer left Tuesday's game against the Cubs after injuring the knee. It's unclear how worried the Mets are about the outfielder at this point, but the fact that he's having the MRI certainly creats some cause for concern. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:46 pm
  • Michael Cuddyer exits game with sore knee
    Michael Cuddyer left Tuesday's game versus the Cubs with a sore left knee.

    Advice: Cuddyer didn't suffer an obvious injury, so it's unclear how he was hurt. The Mets should have more on the veteran outfielder's status later Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:57 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
  • Padres call up Jedd Gyorko from Triple-A
    Padres recalled INF Jedd Gyorko from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: He'll replace the injured Cory Spangenberg (knee) on the active roster and figures to see at least part-time at-bats at second base. The 26-year-old was batting just .210/.282/.311 prior to his demotion earlier this month, but he was swinging the bat well during his time in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:56 am
  • Cain (hamstring) hitless in return to lineup
    Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Monday in his return to action against the Astros.

    Advice: Cain didn't start Sunday due to a lingering hamstring issue, but he felt good enough to serve as the DH on Monday. He might not be completely out of the woods yet, but it's a good sign. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:24 am
  • Altuve homers, helping the Astros beat KC
    Jose Altuve walked and hit a solo home run in four plate appearances on Monday as the Astros topped the Royals.

    Advice: Altuve slugged a solo home run to left field off of Joe Blanton in the third inning, padding his club's lead to 3-0 at the time. He's now on an eight-game hitting streak while carrying a .292/.336/.415 batting line with seven home runs, 31 RBI, and 21 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:25 pm
  • Jedd Gyorko to be recalled by Padres
    Jedd Gyorko will be recalled prior to Tuesday's game versus the Mariners.

    Advice: The Padres are expected to place someone on the disabled list, with Will Middlebrooks (ankle) and Cory Spangenberg (knee) being the most likely options. Gyorko has hit .283/.368/.500 with four homers over 15 games for Triple-A El Paso after being sent down earlier this month. He could wind up seeing a decent amount of playing time, depending on what the club's corresponding move is. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:12 pm
  • Dozier drills 3-run HR but Twins fall to Reds
    Brian Dozier clubbed a three-run home run in a 1-for-5 effort on Monday, but the Twins fell to the Reds.

    Advice: Dozier's three-run home run capped off a six-run fourth inning in which the Twins made serious inroads, reducing their deficit to 9-7 at the time. Dozier is having an even better season thus far than he did in 2014, batting .266/.340/.529 with 16 home runs and 40 RBI with seven stolen bases. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:08 pm
  • Wilmer Flores officially moving to second base
    The Mets plan to use Wilmer Flores at second base when Daniel Murphy returns from the disabled list.

    Advice: Flores had been splitting time with Ruben Tejada at shortstop. Now he'll move to second with Murphy taking over at third base. Murphy could even see time at first when Lucas Duda needs a day off. Light-hitting second baseman Dilson Herrera appears to be the odd man out. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:29 am
  • Jeremy Guthrie allows two runs in victory
    Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs over six innings in a victory over the Athletics on Sunday.

    Advice: Guthrie picked up his 1,000th career strikeout along the way. His seven strikeouts were a season high. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:16 pm
  • Cuddyer not in lineup for Mets on Sunday
    Michael Cuddyer is not in the Mets starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

    Advice: Cuddyer went 1-for-6 with a pair of strikeouts on Friday/Saturday. He's in a 6-for-45 (.133) slump over his last 13 games, and could probably benefit from the mental health day. John Mayberry Jr. will start in left field and bat sixth for the Mets on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:32 pm
  • Bauer gives up four runs in loss to Orioles
    Trevor Bauer gave up four runs over seven innings in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

    Advice: Bauer gave up just five hits, but four were of the extra-base variety -- Jimmy Paredes hit a two-run homer in the third, Manny Machado homered to lead off the sixth and Paredes and Chris Davis hit back-to-back doubles later in the sixth. He walked just one, though, his lowest walk total in a start since May 24. The loss dropped Bauer to 6-5 with a 3.96 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. Bauer will try to get back in the win column Friday at the Pirates. Rotoworld.com

  • Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) sitting out Sunday
    Lorenzo Cain is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday after aggravating his hamstring injury while stealing a base Saturday.

    Advice: He missed a few games over the last week with the ailment but had played in two straight after Thursday's off day. Cain is hoping to return to the lineup on Monday. Jarrod Dyson is in center field in his place Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Cashner earns win over Arizona
    Andrew Cashner won for just the third time this season after holding the Diamondbacks to two runs in seven innings Saturday.

    Advice: Cashner struck out six and walked none tonight, a big improvement over his 11/13 K/BB ratio in his previous four starts. His 3-9 record is hardly all his fault -- the Padres defense, for one, deserves a lot of blame, but he's been a disappointment, especially of late. He gets the Cardinals next week, making him a mediocre play in mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Wacha sharp in Saturday's win over Cubs
    Michael Wacha allowed six hits and one run over six innings in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Wacha could have pitched deeper into the game but the Cardinals already had a comfortable lead. The lanky right-hander ranks second in the National League with ten wins and is eighth in ERA (2.77). He's been the best pitcher on the best team in baseball. He's a shoe-in for next month's All-Star Game in Cincinnati. Rotoworld.com

  • Marte steals home as Pirates down Braves
    Starling Marte went 3-for-4 with three runs scored, including a steal of home, in the Pirates' 8-4 win over the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: Marte stole home in the fifth inning, breaking for the plate as the Braves attempted to pick off Pedro Alvarez from first base. He had an RBI single and scored a run in the Bucs' five-run first inning and also scored in the seventh. Marte is hitting .279/.328/.460 on the year with 46 RBI and 41 runs scored. The stolen base was his 15th, sixth-most in the National League this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Morton allows 10 hits, four runs vs. Braves
    Charlie Morton allowed four runs on 10 hits over six innings in a win over the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: Morton struggled for a second straight start but managed to limit the damage in this one. That was due in part to his six strikeouts while not walking a batter. Morton owned a 1.62 ERA on June 16, but after his last two starts he's up to a 4.28 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP. Morton will carry a 6-1 record into Friday's interleague tilt with the Indians. Rotoworld.com

  • Morales knocks in two runs as Royals edge A's
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-3 with two RBI to help the Royals edge the Athletics 3-2 on Saturday.

    Advice: Morales' two-run single in the sixth inning was the difference in the game. He's got a 10-game hitting streak that has his line up to .292/.353/.469. His 48 RBI are good for sixth-most in the American League. Rotoworld.com

  • Bourn has hearing to appeal his suspension
    Michael Bourn had his hearing Friday to appeal his one game suspension for bumping home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi in Tuesday's game.

    Advice: A decision will be made some time between now and July 10 on whether the ban is upheld. Either way, the Indians are likely to have him serve on a day that he would've had off anyways, so there aren't any major fantasy implications here. Rotoworld.com

  • Lorenzo Cain goes 1-for-4 in return to lineup
    Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in his return to the Royals starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Cain sat out two of the team's previous three contests with a slight hamstring strain. It doesn't sound as though the issue will warrant a trip to the disabled list, but he could require a day off here and there to manage it. Rotoworld.com

  • Dozier hits 15th home run
    Brian Dozier went 3-for-4 with a leadoff home run in Friday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: His leadoff blast against Kyle Lohse gave the Twins an early lead, but the Brewers pounded out six runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back. Dozier is already up to 15 home runs through 71 games, so he has a really good chance to surpass his career-high of 23 from last season. Rotoworld.com

  • Syndergaard goes eight IP in win over Reds
    Noah Syndergaard spun eight innings of one-run ball in a 2-1 win over the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: It was the first time in his brief major league career that he completed eight innings. Syndergaard cruised for the most part, allowing five hits while walking none and striking out five. The only run scored on a ground out. He needed just 89 pitches to get through his eight innings of work. The 22-year-old has had his fair share of ups and downs of late, but an outing like this one underscores the upside. He'll bring a 3.59 ERA into a start against the Dodgers next weekend on the road.

  • Cuddyer hitless Friday against Reds
    Michael Cuddyer went 0-for-4 with a strikeout against the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: Cuddyer had a chance to do some real damage when he came up with the bases loaded in the fifth inning, but he swung at the first pitch and lined out to center field. The 36-year-old has just one hit in his last 19 at-bats and owns a disappointing .248/.303/.370 batting line on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Alex Meyer recalled from Triple-A
    Twins recalled RHP Alex Meyer from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Meyer put up a 0.53 ERA and 20/6 K/BB in 17 innings since being moved to the bullpen at Rochester. His future might still be in the rotation, but he'll be used in relief for now and could earn a high-profile role in the Twins' bullpen in short order. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Altuve goes 3-for-4 in win
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with, two doubles, three runs scored and two steals as the Astros' No. 3 hitter on Thursday.

    Advice: The Astros liked Carlos Correa's work in the two hole while Jose Altuve missed time last week with a hamstring injury, so Altuve has been hitting third since returning Monday. It doesn't hurt his fantasy value at all. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:49 pm
  • Kolten Wong knocks in two runs in win
    Kolten Wong went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk Thursday in the win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Wong was having a rough June until yesterday, but now he's 4-for-8 with a homer the last two days. It doesn't look like he'll be vacating the leadoff spot anytime soon. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:16 pm
  • Starling Marte not in Pirates lineup Thursday
    Starling Marte is not in the Pirates' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Gregory Polanco will start in left field and Josh Harrison will play right field against Reds right-hander Anthony DeSclafani. Marte should be back in there Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 11:50 am
  • Twins calling up Alex Meyer for bullpen
    According to Brandon Warne of 105 The Ticket, the Twins will call up Alex Meyer on Friday.

    Advice: Meyer has registered a 0.53 ERA and 20/6 K/BB ratio in 17 innings since being converted into a reliever at Triple-A Rochester. The 25-year-old right-hander could quickly slide into a setup role with the Twins if he's able to keep his control in check. Rotoworld.com

  • Wacha can work 200-plus innings this season
    Cardinals officials feel Michael Wacha can work more than 200 innings, per FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

    Advice: Which is good news for his fantasy owners, who have watched Wacha flourish to the tune of a 2.85 ERA, 1.087 WHIP, and 69/20 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 innings this season. Wacha was limited to 107 innings last summer due to a shoulder injury, but the 23-year-old right-hander has had no shoulder problems at all in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Mets discussing moving Flores to 2B
    Sources tell Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News that the Mets are discussing moving Wilmer Flores to second base.

    Advice: The move would shore up the keystone, where Dilson Herrera has looked largely overmatched at the plate, while also getting Ruben Tejada's bat in the lineup on a regular basis. In that scenario, Daniel Murphy -- close to returning from a strained left quad -- would play third base and possibly first at times. If and when David Wright returns, the Mets would have a decision to make. Flores is hitting .243/.277/.406 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Heyward stays hot, homers in 3rd consec. game
    Jason Heyward homered in his third consecutive game in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Heyward, in a 1-for-4 effort, hit a three-run home run to right field in the seventh inning off of Mat Latos to pad the Cardinals' lead to 5-1 at the time. The outfielder has been red-hot as of late, batting .391/.417/.739 since June 10. Overall, he's hitting .278/.318/.448 with nine home runs and 27 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Wong homers as Cardinals defeat the Marlins
    Kolten Wong went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Cardinals take down the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wong slugged a two-run home run to right field in the third inning against Mat Latos, giving the Cardinals a 2-1 lead. It's his second home run in his last four starts, now with nine on the year along with 32 RBI, six stolen bases, and a .282/.337/.454 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Cain dealing with slight hamstring issue
    Lorenzo Cain is dealing with a slight hamstring issue.

    Advice: That explains why he has been out of the Royals' lineup for two of the team's past three games. Royals manager Ned Yost said he hopes to have the center fielder back for Friday's game. Jarrod Dyson started in center for the club on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:53 pm
  • Lorenzo Cain not in Royals' lineup Wednesday
    Lorenzo Cain is not in the Royals' lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: It would appear to be a simple day of rest for the oft-used outfielder, but it's the second in three days after he sat out Monday as well. There may be more to the story than is currently known. As he did Monday, Jarrod Dyson will get the start in center field with Cain out. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:11 pm
  • Jeremy Guthrie gives up six runs in loss
    Jeremy Guthrie was tagged for six runs and nine hits in five innings by the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Advice: This is doubly ugly with the way the Mariners have been hitting. Guthrie had been pitching a little better lately, allowing eight runs over his previous four starts. Still, his season overall has been nothing less than a disaster. He's sporting a 5.90 ERA with just 36 strikeouts in 76 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com
