  • Eddie Rosario homers, triples, doubles
    Eddie Rosario missed the cycle by a single, knocked in three runs and scored three runs Thursday as the Twins beat the Mariners 9-5.

    Advice: Rosario was hitting .272/.296/.396 a week ago. Eight extra-base hits in five games have changed that in a hurry, pushing him up to .294/.316/.462. One would think his lack of plate discipline will catch up to him at some point, but even if that happens, his defense in left field will help him stay in the lineup. Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Aaron Hicks goes 3-for-4 with a homer
    Aaron Hicks went 3-for-4 with a homer and a walk from the two hole Thursday against the Mariners.

    Advice: The Twins never would have asked for this much from Hicks, but they're getting it. He's had multiple hits in five straight games, raising his average from .259 to .299. If the Twins keeps batting him second, he might even offer some mixed-league value down the stretch. Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Austin Jackson homers against Twins
    Austin Jackson homered, doubled and walked versus the Twins on Thursday.

    Advice: Jackson has been quite the bust offensively in his Mariners career, but at least he's had a bit to offer fantasy leaguers these last two months (.267 average, four homers, five steals) than he did previously. It's just not quite enough to give him mixed-league value. Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Jason Castro delivers walkoff bomb
    Jason Castro hit a game-winning homer in the bottom of the ninth as the Astros topped the Angels 3-0 on Thursday.

    Advice: Castro was making his first start of the series. The big blast gave him his first RBI since July 3, his first homer since June 12 and his first three-RBI game since last year. Hank Conger probably deserves to keep starting two out of every three games for now, but if Castro does pick it up offensively, it's no secret that the Astros prefer his defense behind the plate. Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Josh Hamilton homers, knocks in four in win
    Josh Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI as the Rangers edged the Yankees 7-6 on Thursday.

    Advice: Hamilton singled in Leonys Martin to win it against Andrew Miller in the bottom of the ninth. He's now hitting .258 with four homers and 14 RBI in 27 games in his return to Texas. That's nothing special, but it's certainly better than what the team was getting from his spot prior to his reacquisition. Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Ryan Rua hits inside-the-park homer
    Ryan Rua went 2-for-3 with an inside-the-park homer Thursday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Rua has hit in five straight starts while seeing time against lefties of late. Ideally, he'd almost never start against righties, but with Josh Hamilton, Shin-Soo Choo and Mitch Moreland all being counted on, there should always be room him for somewhere versus southpaws. Yesterday, 9:36 pm

  • Brewers recall Logan Schafer from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled OF Logan Schafer from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Schafer will join the team on Friday. He'll help provide depth in the outfield for the Brewers after dealing Carlos Gomez to the Astros on Thursday. Schafer is hitting just .182/.270/.276 in 33 at-bats with the big league club this season. Yesterday, 6:03 pm

  • Domingo Santana goes to Brewers in Gomez deal
    Brewers acquired OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, LHP Josh Hader, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76 from the Astros for OF Carlos Gomez and RHP Mike Fiers.

    Advice: The 22-year-old outfielder has seen limited action with the big league club this season, but has mashed to the tune of .320/.426/.582 with 16 homers and 59 RBI in 75 games at Triple-A Fresno. With little left to prove in the minor leagues, he could immediately get an opportunity to play everyday in Milwaukee. Yesterday, 4:56 pm
  • Athletics release Dayan Viciedo from minors
    Athletics released OF Dayan Viciedo.

    Advice: The veteran slugger opted out of his deal and was granted his release from the Athletics. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league pact. Yesterday, 3:43 pm

  • White Sox acquire Justin Sellers from Pirates
    White Sox acquired INF Justin Sellers from Pirates for a player to be named later.

    Advice: With Micah Johnson forced to the disabled list at Triple-A Charlotte, Sellers will provide versatility and insurance. Yesterday, 3:33 pm

  • Astros activate Jed Lowrie from disabled list
    Astros activated INF Jed Lowrie from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Lowrie was the Astros' regular shortstop prior to suffering a torn ligament in his right thumb in late April, but he now figures to get the majority of the playing time at third base. Sure enough, he's starting at the hot corner Thursday while Luis Valbuena plays first base. Lowrie was batting .300/.432/.567 with four homers and 10 RBI in 18 games prior to the injury. Yesterday, 1:14 pm
  • Cardinals DFA 35-year-old Dan Johnson
    Cardinals designated 1B Dan Johnson for assignment.

    Advice: Johnson managed just three hits -- all singles -- in 21 plate appearances with the Cardinals. The 35-year-old will probably pass through waivers unclaimed. Yesterday, 11:53 am

  • Red Sox outright Sandy Leon to Triple-A
    Red Sox sent C Sandy Leon outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Leon was designated for assignment by the Red Sox exactly 10 days ago and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 26-year-old will continue acting as organizational depth at catcher for Boston. Yesterday, 11:13 am

  • Adams (quad) to begin swinging in two weeks
    Matt Adams (quad) said he plans to begin light swinging within the next two weeks.

    Advice: Adams underwent surgery in late May for a severe quad strain and the initial expectation was that he would miss the remainder of the 2015 season, but it now sounds possible that he could serve as a bench bat in late September and into October. "Seems like he’s getting a little bit more flexibility in what he is allowed to do, and that’s always a real positive for us to see," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday. Yesterday, 8:32 am
    60-Day DL

  • Van Slyke (neck) scores run on Wednesday
    Scott Van Slyke (neck) drew a walk and scored a run in the later innings of Wednesday's game.

    Advice: Van Slyke hasn't started a game since hurting his neck in a cab ride on Saturday in New York. But it's not a major issue. He should be available for any role Friday after Thursday's scheduled team off-day. Yesterday, 5:58 am
  • Lowrie to return to Astros lineup Thursday
    Jed Lowrie (thumb) will be activated from the disabled list and return to the Astros lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Lowrie will start at third base for the Astros, with Carlos Correa firmly entrenched as the team's starting shortstop. Before landing on the shelf, the 31-year-old was hitting .300/.432/.567 with four homers and 10 RBI in 18 games. Wednesday, 8:45 pm
  • Hicks drives in three runs in loss to Pirates
    Aaron Hicks went 2-for-3 with three RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Rather than one big hit, Hicks drove in runs in three different innings in the loss. That included an RBI triple in the sixth inning. Since being activated from the disabled list on July 3, Hicks is hitting .323 (21-for-65) with three homers, 14 RBI and 12 runs scored. Still just 25, Hicks may finally be delivering on some of the promise he showed as a prospect. Tuesday, 9:10 pm
  • Scott Van Slyke battling neck injury
    Scott Van Slyke was unavailable to play Saturday due to a neck injury.

    Advice: Van Slyke hurt his neck in a cab on the way to the game Saturday when his head hit the divider as the driver slammed on his breaks. He's considered day-to-day. Sunday, 9:18 am
  • Justin Sellers outrighted to Triple-A
    Pirates activated INF Justin Sellers from the 60-day disabled list; sent him outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Sellers has battled an Achilles injury all season. While he appears to be over it, he's now off the Pirates' 40-man roster. Sunday, 5:43 am

  • Josh Hamilton out of Rangers' lineup Sat.
    Josh Hamilton is not in the Rangers' lineup Saturday.

    Advice: He'll take a day off with the Angels throwing left-hander Hector Santiago. Ryan Rua is starting in left field. Saturday, 2:07 pm
  • Lowrie (thumb) to begin rehab games on Wed.
    Jed Lowrie (thumb) is set to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: Lowrie has been taking rounds of batting practice without issue since late last week. The 31-year-old underwent surgery in April to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb and Carlos Correa has since taken over at shortstop for Houston. But the switch-hitting Lowrie could work his way into playing time at the hot corner -- stealing some starts from lefty Luis Valbuena -- and he'll be a nice bench piece for the stretch run. Tuesday, 1:57 pm
