  • 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

  • Mariners cut veteran Justin Germano
    Mariners released RHP Justin Germano.

    Advice: He and left-hander Rafael Perez both opted out of their minor league contracts. Germano pitched well for Triple-A Tacoma, recording a 2.83 ERA over 18 outings before his release. The 32-year-old has made 96 major league appearances with seven different teams. 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

  • Buster Posey (head) in Giants' lineup Thurs.
    Buster Posey (head) is starting at first base for the Giants on Thursday afternoon against the Marlins.

    Advice: Posey left Wednesday's game after taking a foul ball off the center of his mask, but he passed a concussion test. He is batting cleanup Thursday against Jose Fernandez, who's making his first start in over 13 months. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves recall Manny Banuelos for MLB debut
    Braves recalled LHP Manny Banuelos from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Banuelos will make his major league debut Thursday in the Braves' series finale against the Nationals. The 24-year-old former top prospect has registered a strong 2.29 ERA and 69/38 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings this season for Gwinnett but probably isn't worth the one-time stream in most fantasy leagues. If he gets an extended look, that may change. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants backing off closer Santiago Casilla
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he will back off Santiago Casilla for a few days due to fatigue.

    Advice: Casilla blew his fourth save of the season on Wednesday night, yielding three runs without retiring batter. His job still seems safe, but look for Bochy to play the matchups with Javier Lopez and Sergio Romo over the next few games should a save opportunity arise. Casilla, 34, has a 3.03 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 29 2/3 total innings this season. He's been fine for the most part. Rotoworld.com

  • Roach getting another start for the Cubs
    Donn Roach will take another turn in the Cubs' rotation Saturday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Roach got roughed up in his debut last weekend against the Cardinals, yielding eight hits and four runs over just 3 1/3 innings. He's a poor fantasy bet versus the Fish. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:51 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
    Today, 7:00 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants activate Matt Cain for Thursday debut
    Giants activated RHP Matt Cain from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Cain will make his 2015 regular-season debut Thursday in the Giants' series finale against the Marlins after missing three months with a flexor tendon strain in his right arm. The veteran right-hander pitched pretty well on his minor league rehab tour and is worth owning in most mixed fantasy leagues. Tim Lincecum (forearm) was placed on the disabled list Thursday in a corresponding roster move. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:45 am
  • Doug Fister gives up four runs in loss
    Doug Fister was tagged for four runs in six innings by the Braves in a loss Wednesday.

    Advice: It was just one bad inning, as Fister allowed two homers and all four runs in the fourth. His velocity was about the same as last time out, which was better than in his return from the DL but not where he was last year. He's probably just a fifth starter in mixed leagues as is. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • 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.

  • Anderson holds D-Backs to one run in seven IP
    Brett Anderson picked up his fifth win of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Diamondbacks, yielding just one run over seven innings.

    Advice: Anderson scattered seven hits over his seven innings of work. The lone run to dent his line came when he served up a solo homer to Aaron Hill in the sixth inning. Otherwise, Anderson was aces, striking out seven against two walks and improving to 5-4 on the year. This isn't anything new, as he's allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his last eight starts. Anderson's bugaboo has always been health, but for the time being, he is pitching some of his best baseball of the season. Overall, he holds a 3.00, 1.29 WHIP and 69/26 K/BB ratio over 96 innings. A home date with the Phillies awaits for his next start. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Ray surrenders four runs in loss to Dodgers
    Robbie Ray couldn't quite manage a quality start in Wednesday night's loss to the Dodgers, tossing six innings of four-run ball.

    Advice: Ray struck out six and walked two in the contest. Three of the four runs against him scored in the third inning, when he allowed a pair of RBI doubles and an RBI single. With the loss, the 23-year-old southpaw dropped to 2-4 on the season. Despite Wednesday's relatively unimpressive performance against the Dodgers, Ray's pitched well since returning to the Snakes' starting rotation on June 5 and currently holds a 2.55 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. He'll try to rebound when he faces the Rangers in his next scheduled start. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Santiago Casilla blows fourth save
    Santiago Casilla took his fourth blown save after giving up three runs without retiring a batter Wednesday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Single, single, home run. Casilla's last two blown saves have been ugly, but since they're his only bad outings in two months, his job is plenty safe enough. The real concern is injury: he always seems to be good for one per year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:14 pm
  • Posey passes concussion test after exiting
    Buster Posey passed a concussion test after Wednesday's game.

    Advice: Posey left the game after taking a foul ball off his mask. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the catcher felt "off" and didn't want to risk further injury. He'll be re-evaluated again Thursday, but as of now it appears he dodged a huge bullet. Rotoworld.com

  • Posey leaves after taking foul ball off mask
    Buster Posey left Wednesday's game after taking a foul ball off his mask.

    Advice: Posey stayed in after the incident, but he was removed in the fifth inning. He's being re-evaluated, likely for concussion symptoms, and the club may have a better prognosis after the game. Andrew Susac would be in line for the bulk of the playing time if Posey is forced to miss time. Rotoworld.com

  • Buster Posey exits with undisclosed injury
    Buster Posey left Wednesday's game against the Marlins with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: There was nothing apparent, but Andrew Susac replaced Posey behind the plate in the bottom of the fifth inning. A few inning earlier Posey took a foul ball off his mask. The Giants should provide an update shortly. 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
  • Posey has double, homer in loss to Marlins
    Buster Posey finished 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two runs scored against the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Posey hit a solo home run in the third inning before doubling and scoring on a wild pitch in the sixth. The catcher is 11-for-24 (.458) with four doubles, two home runs, 13 RBI and eight runs scored during a six-game hitting streak. The hot stretch has his overall line up to .303/.378/.487.

  • 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
  • Banuelos expected to make MLB debut Thursday
    The Braves are expected to recall Manny Banuelos from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday to make his major league debut versus the Nationals.

    Advice: He'll be taking Williams Perez's (foot) spot in the rotation. Acquired from the Yankees over the offseason in the David Carpenter deal, Banuelos holds a 2.29 ERA and 69/38 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings for Gwinnett this season. His stay might be short, but he's worth a look in NL-only leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:43 pm
  • Matt Cain (arm) will debut Thursday vs. MIA
    Matt Cain (forearm) will return to the Giants' starting rotation on Thursday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Cain had been lined up to make his 2015 regular-season debut on Friday, but the Giants need him to step up and take Tim Lincecum's spot. Lincecum is headed to the disabled list with a forearm bruise. Cain has been decent on his lengthy minor league rehab assignment and is worth a shot in most mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:48 pm
  • 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
  • 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
  • Donn Roach struggles in loss to Cardinals
    Donn Roach got roughed up in his Cubs debut, allowing eight hits and four run in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: He only lasted 3 1/3 innings. With Tsuyoshi Wada (shoulder) only expected to miss one start), Roach is probably headed back to Triple-A. Saturday marked Roach's first loss in 17 big league appearances. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:05 pm
  • Posey has two-run double in win over Rockies
    Buster Posey went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Posey contributed a two-run double in the third inning, the third time in his last four games that he's driven in multiple runs. In that span, he's 7-for-16 with three doubles, nine RBI and six runs scored. Overall, Posey is hitting .297/.375/.471 with 11 homers, 39 runs scored and 50 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs officially recall Donn Roach
    Cubs recalled RHP Donn Roach from Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Roach is getting the start Saturday in place of Tsuyoshi Wada (shoulder). The right-hander went 1-0 with a 4.75 ERA in 16 appearances for the Padres last season. Chicago sent Yoervis Medina to Triple-A in the corresponding roster move. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:13 pm
  • 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
  • Robbie Ray goes six solid innings in loss
    Robbie Ray yielded three runs -- two earned -- in six innings Friday against the Padres.

    Advice: Ray struck out five and walked none. He's the Diamondbacks' best starter right now, but he shouldn't be used in mixed leagues next week, what with his lone start coming against the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:02 pm
  • Brett Anderson Ks 10 in win over Marlins
    Brett Anderson was sensational against the Marlins on Friday, tossing seven innings of one-run ball while striking out a season-high 10 batters.

    Advice: Anderson gave up just five hits and one walk, with the lone run scoring on a ground out from Adeiny Hechavarria in the first inning. The southpaw missed bats and kept the ball on the ground, allowing just one fly ball all night long. He has allowed two earned runs or fewer in six out of his last seven starts, giving him a 3.13 ERA on the year. Injuries have kept him off the field in recent years, but he's been a great story in the Dodgers' rotation this season. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:38 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
  • Donn Roach to start for Cubs Saturday
    Donn Roach will be called up to start on Saturday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Tsuyoshi Wada (shoulder) isn't feeling quite ready, so the Cubs need a spot starter. Roach has put up a 2.29 ERA over 14 starts for Triple-A Iowa this season, although he's managed only 33 strikeouts over 82 2/3 innings. He can be avoided for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:00 pm
  • 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
  • Doug Fister fires seven scoreless as Nats win
    Doug Fister was outstanding in Thursday’s victory over the Braves, scattering four hits over seven scoreless innings.

    Advice: Fister walked just one and punched out four on the afternoon. After experiencing reduced velocity in his first start back from the disabled list, the veteran right-hander looked to be in vintage form on Thursday, throwing 113 pitches over his seven frames. He’ll look to replicate this fine outing in a rematch against the Braves in Atlanta on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:17 pm
  • Posey plates three as Giants win slugfest
    Buster Posey went 3-for-5 and drove home three runs as the Giants outlasted the Padres in a 13-8 slugfest on Thursday.

    Advice: Two of Posey's three knocks were doubles and he also scored three runs in the contest. He has once again been one of the truly elite offensive performers behind the plate this season, slashing .293/.369/.469 with 11 long balls and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Posey's grand slam pushes Giants past Padres
    Buster Posey blasted a grand slam in Wednesday's 6-0 triumph across from San Diego.

    Advice: He finished 1-for-4. Posey's grand slam seemed almost preordained after Ian Kennedy slogged through a third inning elongated by a Will Middlebrooks error. Considering Posey's history against Kennedy, it came as no surprise that he capitalized on the moment. Posey is 16-for-40 (.400) lifetime against the right-hander. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Cain (forearm) on track to return July 3
    Matt Cain (forearm) is on track to rejoin the Giants' rotation on July 3.

    Advice: Cain holds a 4.61 ERA but a 15/3 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings in his first three rehab starts. The veteran right-hander is trying to pitch through a strained flexor tendon and isn't a great bet to make in through the season, but fantasy owners can probably roll with him as long as he's healthy. Go ahead and stash Cain away if he's on your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:53 pm
  • Jose Altuve (hamstring) back in lineup Monday
    Jose Altuve (hamstring) is back in the Astros' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Altuve missed the last four games with a strained right hamstring, but he tested things out and is ready to go. The second baseman has hit an un-Altuve-like .237/.284/.321 since the beginning of May. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 3:37 pm
  • 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.
