  • 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

  • Wall (shoulder) lands on DL
    Rockies prospect 2B Forrest Wall (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list at Low-A Asheville on June 30.

    Advice: Wall, 19, is in the middle of a strong full-season debut in South Atlantic League, batting .258/.342/.426 with six home runs, seven doubles, eight triples and 37 RBI to go along with 16 stolen bases in 23 attempts. And considering Asheville’s home park heavily favors left-handed hitters, it is good to see Wall has balanced home (.774 OPS) and road (.762 OPS) splits. Wall is among the top second-base prospects in the minor leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Alex Presley brought up to replace Springer
    The Astros will call up OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: He's expected to replace George Springer, who left Wednesday night's game with a bruised wrist. The 29-year-old appeared in 89 games for Houston last season, batting .244 with six homers and 19 RBI. In 244 at-bats for Fresno this season, Presley has hit .308 with 10 steals and 35 RBI.

  • Tigers release outfielder Xavier Avery
    Tigers released OF Xavier Avery.

    Advice: Avery exercised a July 1 opt-out in his minor league contract with the Tigers. The 25-year-old outfielder was batting .305/.371/.393 with one homer and 14 stolen bases through 73 games for Triple-A Toledo and should have no trouble latching on with a new organization. Rotoworld.com

  • Pagan not in Giants' lineup on Thursday
    Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: It's only a day off, though Pagan has been battling some swelling in his left knee. The 34-year-old outfielder is hitting just .266/.303/.322 in 74 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Loney (finger) expected to return on Friday
    James Loney (finger) is expected to return to the Rays' active roster on Friday.

    Advice: Loney has been on a minor league rehab assignment since Tuesday. He broke a bone in his left middle finger back in late May and will wind up missing around five weeks. The first baseman returns to a .275/.322/.376 batting line, two homers, and 11 RBI in 30 games. Rotoworld.com

  • A.J. Pierzynski hits two-run homer
    A.J. Pierzynski hit a two-run homer against the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Pierzynski hit three homers in his first five games of the season, but he's had just two since. His offensive numbers are still living off that huge April he had, but the Braves committed to him over Christian Bethancourt and don't seem to regret it. Rotoworld.com

  • Hill socks solo homer in loss to Dodgers
    Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Hill connected for his fourth homer of the season when he launched a Brett Anderson offering into the seats in the sixth inning. He also chipped in with a sacrifice fly in the eighth to push his overall RBI total for the season to an even 20. Hill is a possible candidate for trade as we enter July, though his .224/.284/.333 slashline makes one wonder what, if anything, the Diamondbacks could get in return for the 33-year-old infielder.

  • Butler nabs fifth career triple against Rox
    Billy Butler went 2-for-3 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: The second-inning triple was just Butler's fifth in 4,599 career at-bats. He scored later in the inning and added an RBI single in the fifth. The big man is batting .259/.323/.376 on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Orioles designate Delmon Young for assignment
    Orioles designated OF Delmon Young for assignment.

    Advice: Young wasn't terrible this year but wasn't producing much, either, owning a .270/.289/.339 with two home runs in 174 at-bats. The 29-year-old showed enough that he could be of interest to a team as a possible trade target or waiver claim, though. Young is making $2.25 million this year before becoming a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Yesterday, 12:44 pm
  • Kennys Vargas optioned to Double-A
    Twins optioned DH Kennys Vargas to Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Vargas had one hit in three at-bats on Wednesday, pushing up his season line to a still-awful .245/.277/.365. The Twins will not announce a corresponding roster move until Thursday, but there's been speculation that they could call up Miguel Sano. Rotoworld.com

  • Bonifacio named Top Star at Texas League ASG
    Royals OF prospect Jorge Bonifacio earned MVP honors for his performance at Tuesday night's Texas League All-Star Game.

    Advice: He was named the game's Top Star after blasting a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning. The 22-year-old was third in the Texas League in home runs (13) during the first half and fourth in RBI (42). Bonifacio hit .289 in June after batting just .229 in the season's first two months.

  • Will Middlebrooks (ankle) pinch-hits
    Will Middlebrooks (ankle) grounded out as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Middlebrooks was removed from Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks with an ankle injury that occurred when he stepped on a bat in the on-deck circle. He's expected to avoid the disabled list. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:43 am
  • 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

  • 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

  • Loney (finger) begins rehab stint Tuesday
    James Loney (finger) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Loney, out since May 24 with a broken left middle finger, will DH in his return to game action. He has a good chance to return prior to the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com

  • Butler fills up the box score as A's beat COL
    Billy Butler had a big night, going 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, two RBI, and three runs scored in Monday's win against the Rockies.

    Advice: Butler singled and scored in the first inning, clubbed a solo home run in the fourth, knocked in a run with a double in the eighth and later scored on Brett Lawrie's triple. Aside from a four-hit night on June 17, Butler hadn't done anything at the plate, batting a miserable .179 (10-for-56) since June 5. Overall, he's hitting .254/.315/.366 with six home runs and 34 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • James Loney (finger) nearing rehab assignment
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that James Loney (finger) could begin a rehab assignment "in the next couple of days."

    Advice: Loney has progressed more quickly than expected in his recovery from a broken left middle finger and could be activated prior to the All-Star break. The first baseman sports a .275/.322/.376 batting line with two homers and 11 RBI in 30 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Angel Pagan goes 0-for-4 against Rockies
    Angel Pagan, still dealing with swelling in his left knee, went 0-for-4 against the Rockies on Sunday.

    Advice: Pagan has started the last two games even after the Giants called him doubtful for the weekend on Friday. He hasn't done much of anything for fantasy leaguers this year, but the Giants still need him in the lineup with their other two starting outfielders on the DL. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:01 pm
  • Middlebrooks leaves game with apparent injury
    Will Middlebrooks was removed from Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Middlebrooks appeared to roll his ankle on a bat in the Diamondbacks on-deck circle while chasing down a foul pop fly. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but will be evaluated by team trainers. The Padres should have an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:05 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
  • McCann walk-off HR completes Tigers' comeback
    James McCann smacked a walk-off, solo home run in the Tigers' comeback win over the White Sox Sunday.

    Advice: The Tigers were dominated for seven innings by Jeff Samardzija, but they tied things up in the eighth with Victor Martinez's bases-clearing double. McCann, who singled and scored in the eighth, then won it by depositing a Zach Putnam pitch just over the left-field wall. Alex Avila (knee) is due back soon, but McCann will continue to start versus lefties. Rotoworld.com

  • James Loney (finger) ahead of schedule
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Saturday that James Loney (finger) is ahead of schedule in his recovery and should return to the Rays before the All-Star break.

    Advice: Loney has been on the shelf since May 25 with a broken left middle finger and was expected to be sidelined until after the Mid-Summer classic. Before hitting the disabled list, he was hitting .275/.322/.376 with two homers and 11 RBI in 30 games. 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
    Saturday, 6:01 am
  • Angel Pagan likely to miss Saturday's game
    Angel Pagan isn't likely to play Saturday after sitting Friday with swelling in his left knee.

    Advice: The current hope is that he just misses a couple of days. The Giants can hardly afford to put their third starting outfielder on the disabled list, but it might happen if the knee fails to respond by Sunder. Gregor Blanco is playing center in Pagan's place. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:02 pm
  • Billy Butler goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Billy Butler went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Royals and is hitting .197 with one homer and six RBI in 66 at-bats during June.

    Advice: If Butler were on a one-year deal instead of a three-year pact, he'd be a real candidate for a benching. As is, the A's will likely stick with him and hope for the best. He's been a liability thus far. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:38 pm
  • 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
    Friday, 6:42 pm
  • Pagan (knee) heading for x-ray and MRI exam
    Angel Pagan is set to undergo X-rays and an MRI exam on his left knee.

    Advice: Pagan bruised his knee when he crashed into the wall during Thursday's game and wasn't feeling good enough to play on Friday so the Giants want to rule out any serious injury. Should he be forced to the disabled list, Justin Maxwell would continue to get extended run in the Giants outfield. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 5:49 pm
  • Angel Pagan scratched from Giants lineup
    Angel Pagan was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: No word yet on the reason for the late switch, but the oft-injured outfielder has dealt with his fair share of ailments this season. Gregor Blanco will hit leadoff for the Giants on Friday with Justin Maxwell entering the lineup and hitting eighth. Rotoworld.com

  • Vargas' 4 hit, 4 RBI night leads Twins to win
    Kennys Vargas had a big night as the Twins routed the White Sox on Monday, finishing 4-for-4 with an RBI single and a three-run home run.

    Advice: Vargas rapped an RBI single as part of a five-run fourth inning, then drilled a three-run homer to kickstart a five-run sixth inning. Entering the night, Vargas had recorded only six hits in 36 plate appearances since getting recalled from Triple-A. He's batting .248/.283/.379 on the year with five home runs and 15 RBI.

  • Nationals interested in D'Backs infielders
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Nationals are interested in the Diamondbacks' middle infield depth.

    Advice: He doesn't say which player(s) specifically they might be targeting, but Aaron Hill, Chris Owings, Nick Ahmed and Cliff Pennington are the options. Hill would probably make the most sense, as the D'Backs have been trying to trade him for a while. The 33-year-old hasn't been very good this season, hitting .236/.301/.338 with three homers.
