  • Cardinals outright Dan Johnson to Triple-A
    Cardinals sent 1B Dan Johnson outright to Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: The veteran first baseman passed through waivers unclaimed and has opted to remain with the Cardinals as opposed to electing free agency. The 35-year-old is hitting .242/.350/.427 with 11 homers and 44 RBI at Triple-A this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:22 pm

  • Duda continues home run barrage in victory
    Lucas Duda continued his home run barrage on Sunday, blasting a two-run homer off Jordan Zimmermann in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: With the victory, the Mets completed their sweep of the three-game weekend series against the Nationals and pulled even with their division rival for the top spot in the National League East. Duda has been on an absolute tear at the plate in recent days, blasting nine home runs and driving home 12 runs in his last eight ballgames. He finished the night 2-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.348/.489 with 21 homers and 50 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:04 pm
  • ChiSox, Rangers, O's interested in Valencia
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the White Sox, Rangers and Orioles have emerged as the most likely destinations for Danny Valencia.

    Advice: In a bit of a surprise move, Valencia was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday. He is expected to be claimed off trade waivers on Monday, which will give the Jays an opportunity to deal him. Valencia is having a terrific season, slashing .296/.331/.506 with seven long balls and 29 RBI in his 162 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:16 pm

  • Canha walks A's off with double in 10th
    Mark Canha hit a walk-off double to propel the A's to a 2-1 win over the Indians on Sunday.

    Advice: Canha had not recorded a hit entering the 10th inning, but his two-out double off of Indians reliever Cody Allen scored Sam Fuld from first to give the A's a low-scoring win. Canha's hitting .229/.292/.381 with eight homers and 35 RBI in 236 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:11 pm

  • Moss slaps walk-off RBI single as Cards win
    Brandon Moss sent the Cardinals to a walk-off victory on Sunday with an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Rockies.

    Advice: Moss pinch-hit for Mark Reynolds with runners in first and third and one out in the bottom of the ninth inning against Scott Oberg. Against a shifted infield, he slapped a single where the shortstop would normally have been playing, allowing the winning run to score easily. Moss is now 2-for-11 with two singles and an RBI as a Cardinal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:06 pm
  • Howard stays hot with another multi-hit game
    Ryan Howard went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the Phillies lost 6-2 to the Braves on Sunday.

    Advice: Howard doubled to lead off the second inning and later scored on Cody Asche's RBI single to give the Phillies an early 1-0 lead. The first baseman is on an eight-game hitting streak, the most recent three of which have included multiple hits. He has a .241/.292/.464 batting line on the year with 18 home runs and 60 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:29 pm
  • Davis provides Orioles' only offense with HR
    Chris Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Davis provided the only blemish on the afternoon for the Tigers' young lefty Daniel Norris, homering in the fourth inning. The 1B/OF has matched last year's home run total at 26, and has also knocked in 72 runs while hitting .245/.327/.504. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:18 pm

  • Loney drives in two runs to help down Red Sox
    James Loney went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI hits in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Loney doubled home a run off Red Sox starter Wade Miley in the fourth inning and later hit a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth inning to help the Rays to a 4-3 win over their division rivals. The first baseman isn't hitting particularly well this season (.263/.313/.345 with three homers and 20 RBI) and holds little-to-no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:04 pm
  • Ortiz hits RBI double in loss to Rays
    David Ortiz went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Ortiz's third-inning RBI double off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi pushed the Red Sox advantage to 3-1, but the boys from Tampa would chip away and ultimately prevail with a 4-3 win, dropping the Sox to a disappointing 47-59. Ortiz is hitting .246/.337/.469 with 20 homers and 59 RBI. The numbers aren't as gaudy as we're accustomed to, but he remains a productive power bat. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:59 pm
  • Joey Votto not in lineup on Sunday
    Joey Votto is absent from the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's simply getting a day of rest. Ivan DeJesus is handling first base while Votto sits. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:48 am

  • Pearce (oblique) hopes to swing bat soon
    Steve Pearce (oblique) hopes to throw and swing a bat this week.

    Advice: Pearce to this point has been limited to rest and treatment since straining his left oblique two weeks ago, but he said he was finally pain-free on Saturday. He might need a couple rehab games but doesn't appear too far off from a return if he can avoid a setback. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:22 am

  • Brandon Belt homers twice in Giants' win
    Brandon Belt hit his 11th and 12th homers of the year Saturday as the Giants beat the Rangers 9-7 in 11 innings.

    Advice: Hunter Pence had the go-ahead homer in the 11th before Belt hit his second of the game to provide an insurance run. Remarkably, both homers tonight were off lefties (Brandon Belt and Sam Freeman). He had been homerless in 66 at-bats versus southpaws this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:29 pm
  • Buster Posey goes 3-for-5, homers
    Buster Posey went 3-for-5 with a homer and a double against the Rangers on Saturday.

    Advice: Posey never had a homer as a DH coming into 2015, but now he has two in three starts there. He's hitting .328 with 15 homers overall, and he's struck out just 33 times in 351 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:15 pm

  • Lonnie Chisenhall homers for Indians
    Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians' only run Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: Chisenhall is 4-for-11 in three games since returning to the majors Thursday. Since he's likely to keep on starting in the outfield against righties, he should be a nice AL-only option the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:48 pm
  • Duda homers twice, supplies go-ahead RBI
    Lucas Duda had a huge impact on Saturday's 3-2 win over the Nationals, hitting a pair of solo home runs and a go-ahead RBI double.

    Advice: The Mets brought Yoenis Cespedes over at the trade deadline to bolster a shoddy offense, but on Saturday, Duda did it all on his own. He launched a solo home run against Nationals starter Joe Ross in the fourth inning, then repeated the feat in the seventh. That second homer tied the game at 2-2. A frame later, he smacked an RBI double off Nationals reliever Matt Thornton to put the Mets up 3-2. This would stand as the final. Duda has produced multi-homer efforts in three of his last seven games to help boost his slash to .246/.347/.481 with 20 home runs and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:27 pm
  • Howard rips three hits in Saturday's rout
    Ryan Howard led the Phillies with three hits Saturday in a blowout win over the Braves.

    Advice: Howard contributed an RBI single during the Phillies' four-run fourth inning. The former MVP is hitting a robust .313 since the All-Star break. He leads Philadelphia in home runs (18), RBI (60) and strikeouts (101) this season. Despite winning eight of their last nine, the Phillies remain 14 and a half games behind first-place Washington in the NL East. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:14 pm
  • Jays designate Danny Valencia for assignment
    Blue Jays designated INF/OF Danny Valencia for assignment.

    Advice: With all of the recent acquisitions that the Blue Jays have made, they were forced to make a few tough decisions on their roster and it appears that Valencia is the odd-man out. The lefty-masher was hitting .296/.331/.506 overall with seven homers and 29 RBI in 162 at-bats. He should attract interest from plenty of teams looking to upgrade their bench.

  • Lonnie Chisenhall goes 3-for-4, doubles
    Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

    Advice: Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. Ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:05 am
  • Chris Davis homers, knocks in four runs
    Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, four RBI and a walk Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Davis has six homers in 13 games since the All-Star break and 25 overall. It's not nearly the same kind of season he had in 2013, not with his .244 average, but it's is a big improvement on what he did last year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:28 pm

  • David Ortiz goes 3-for-3, knocks in two
    Despite facing Chris Sale, David Ortiz went 3-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a walk Thursday against the White Sox.

    Advice: All three hits came off Sale. Ortiz has had more success lately, but even so, he entered the game with a .162/.182/.276 line against left-handers this season. His overall average is up to .247, which is the highest it's been since early May. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:14 pm
  • Indians recall Lonnie Chisenhall from AAA
    Indians recalled INF Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: With Brandon Moss shipped out of town, Chisenhall could see some action in the corner outfield, where he had been working in the minors. Unless he finds everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:00 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. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:53 am

  • Brandon Moss officially traded to Cardinals
    Cardinals acquired 1B/OF Brandon Moss from the Indians for LHP Rob Kaminsky.

    Advice: Moss has struggled to produce consistent numbers offensively since developing a hip injury last summer and there hasn't been much indication that he's going to turn it around. The 31-year-old does have some pop and he does fit the Cardinals' need for a corner outfield and first base type with Matt Holliday (quad) back on the shelf, but Kaminsky is no small price. Moss, who's under contractual control through 2016, will likely split time between first base and left field in St. Louis. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:49 am
  • Cardinals acquire Brandon Moss for Kaminsky
    Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have acquired Brandon Moss from the Indians for pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky.

    Advice: Moss fits the Cardinals' need for both a first baseman and corner outfielder, but it comes at a steep price. Kaminsky, the 28th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, boasts a 2.15 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 186/68 K/BB ratio in 217 1/3 career minor league innings. The 20-year-old left-hander is currently in High-A ball. Moss, meanwhile, has struggled offensively since undergoing hip surgery in 2014. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:02 am
  • STL talking to Indians about Brandon Moss
    According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the Cardinals are talking to the Indians about Brandon Moss.

    Advice: Moss can play both first base and corner outfield, which fits the Cardinals' immediate need now that Matt Holliday is headed back to the disabled list with a re-strain of his right quad. Moss has struggled in his first season with the Indians, but the 31-year-old registered an .844 OPS (135 OPS+) for the A's between 2012-2014. Cotillo says there's been talk of a one-for-one swap of Moss and Cardinals pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:46 am
  • Lucas Duda hits three homers in losing cause
    Lucas Duda hit three homers to plate all three Mets runs Wednesday against the Padres.

    Advice: Oddly enough, the last player to have three homers to account for all of a team's runs was Duda's old competitor, Ike Davis, on July 8, 2012. The Mets lost that one to the Diamondbacks 6-3. Tonight, they lost 7-3. Duda has six homers in his last four games after hitting three in his previous 46 games. Hopefully, he can stay hot like he did in April. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:32 pm
  • Buster Posey getting a breather Wednesday
    Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off with it being a day game after a night game. Hector Sanchez is catching in Posey's place. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:28 am

  • Votto hits three-run homer in win over Cards
    Joey Votto went 3-for-3 with a three-run home run as the Reds shut out the Cardinals 4-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Votto hit a single and a double to go along with his three-run homer in the sixth inning. The multi-hit game was his eighth in his last 11 contests, including five three-hit outings. After a lull in early July, the 31-year-old is back to hitting a robust .311/.428/.538 with 19 homers, 51 RBI and 55 runs scored overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:17 pm

  • Davis has 2 HR, 5 RBI to down the Braves
    Chris Davis crushed a pair of home runs to drive in five runs, helping the Orioles take down the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: The O's fell behind 2-0 in the top of the first inning, but Davis quickly responded with a three-run home run in the bottom half. He added a two-run shot in the second, with both blasts coming against Julio Teheran -- his only hits in four at-bats on the night. Davis is swinging a hot stick as he's homered five times in his last seven games, giving him 24 on the season with 65 RBI and a .243/.325/.497 line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 pm

  • Duda homers as Mets shut out the Padres
    Lucas Duda went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Mets to a win on Tuesday against the Padres.

    Advice: Duda staked the Mets to an early 2-0 lead when he drilled a James Shields offering over the fence in center field. Given how masterful Noah Syndergaard was on the mound, it was the only offense the Mets would need. Duda has three home runs in his last three games, giving him 15 on the season with 42 RBI and a .236/.338/.433 batting line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:45 pm
  • Ortiz homers again, but Red Sox lose slugfest
    David Ortiz hit a two-run home run, his only hit in five at-bats, but the Red Sox came out on the losing end of Monday's slugfest with the White Sox.

    Advice: Ortiz halved the deficit created by Joe Kelly in the first inning with his two-run home run off of John Danks, making it a 4-2 game. It's his seventh home run in the month of July and his 20th on the year along with 56 RBI and a .243/.330/.473 triple-slash line. It didn't seem possible a month ago, but Ortiz has a chance to register the ninth 30-homer season of his 20-year career. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:17 pm
  • Steve Pearce (oblique) yet to resume activity
    Steve Pearce (oblique) remains limited to rest and treatment.

    Advice: Pearce is eligible to return from his left oblique strain in a week, but he's not going to be ready at that point. "If you test it and you're wrong, you set yourself back another two weeks," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:07 pm

  • Cards 'don't appear high' on O's Chris Davis
    According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Cardinals "don't appear to be high" on Chris Davis.

    Advice: St. Louis is known to be in search of an upgrade at first base, but the Cardinals' primary target seems to be the Brewers' Adam Lind. Crasnick says the Cards are "wary" of Davis' lofty strikeout totals, and it also probably helps that Lind carries a team-friendly option for 2016 whereas Davis is due to become a free agent.

  • Ortiz plates seven, Red Sox demolish Tigers
    David Ortiz homered twice and drove home a career-high seven runs on Sunday as the Red Sox demolished the Tigers 11-1 at Fenway Park.

    Advice: The veteran slugger broke a 1-1 tie with a mammoth three-run shot off Tigers starter Shane Greene in the fourth inning. He would add an RBI single in the sixth before unloading on a Neftali Feliz fastball in the seventh for his second three-run blast. He finished the night 4-for-5 with three runs scored and seven RBI, raising his season slash to .243/.332/.468 to go with 19 homers and 54 RBI. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 8:38 pm
  • Duda homers twice in beatdown rout of LAD
    Lucas Duda went 2-for-6 with a pair of solo home runs in Saturday's 15-2 demolition of the Dodgers.

    Advice: The Mets racked up 21 hits in the big win. Duda might have only had two of those, but both left the ballpark. He did his damage against the Dodgers bullpen, launching a solo shot in the sixth inning and another in the seventh. The two dingers gave him 14 on the year. He's also driven in 40 runs and is slashing .238/.340/.430. All of these numbers are down from a breakout 2014 campaign, though Duda has had his moments this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 7:59 pm
  • Davis crushes grand slam in O's win
    Chris Davis launched a grand slam in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Davis unloaded on an Erasmo Ramirez offering with one out and the bases juiced in the third inning to give the Orioles a 4-0 lead. It was his 22nd homer of the season and pushed his RBI total to an even 60 on the year. The slugger has been in the zone of late, with three homers and two doubles in his last four games. That, on top of an ongoing eight-game hitting streak. He's currently hitting .242/.321/.487. On Friday, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reported that the Orioles were considering selling off some pieces at the trade deadline. Davis is one of those potential pieces, and with his recent hot stretch, he should draw interest as a rental from multiple teams if the team does, indeed, try to move him.

  • Ryan Howard slugs 17th home run of 2015
    Ryan Howard slugged a three-run homer Saturday in the Phillies' defeat of the Cubs.

    Advice: Howard went deep to left-center off Cubs starter Jake Arrieta after an Odubel Herrera two-out double and a Maikel Franco two-out walk. The veteran first baseman has tallied 17 home runs and 51 RBI in 89 games this season despite a .223 batting average and .269 OBP. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 4:03 pm
  • Votto has three hits, HR vs. Rockies
    Joey Votto went 3-for-5 with a solo homer Friday against the Rockies.

    Advice: He took John Axford deep with one out in the ninth inning to tie the ballgame, but the Rockies went on to win on a wild pitch in the next half-inning. Votto has been red-hot in recent days, hitting .593 (16-for-27) over his last seven games. He has improved his batting average from .277 to .302 during that time. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 9:42 pm

  • O's giving 'serious consideration' to selling
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Orioles are giving "serious consideration" to becoming sellers at the trade deadline.

    Advice: The reigning American League East champs have been disappointing so far in 2015, posting a 46-48 record. They sit just 4.5 games out of a Wild Card spot, though, so it would be a bit of a surprise to see them sell. If they would make such a decision, impending free agents like Chris Davis, Matt Wieters and Wei-Yin Chen could be on the move. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 10:03 am
