  • Goldschmidt extends hit streak to 10 games
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a walk, but the Diamondbacks lost in 10 innings to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt kept hope alive, drilling a two run double in the bottom of the 10th inning against Kenley Jansen to make it a 6-4 game. The first baseman is on a 10-game hitting streak, batting a ridiculous .354/.469/.639 with 20 home runs, 65 RBI, and 15 stolen bases to date. Rotoworld.com

  • Grandal plates four as Dodgers beat DBacks
    Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's 10-inning win against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Grandal opened the scoring with a two-run home run off of Rubby De La Rosa in the second inning. He added necessary insurance in the 10th inning with a two-run double to make it a 6-3 game. Grandal has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 12 on the season along with 31 RBI and a .269/.380/.497 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Teixeira's 19th HR serves as Yanks' only run
    Mark Teixeira provided the Yankees their only run in Tuesday's loss against the Angels.

    Advice: It was a solo home run to left-center off of Andrew Heaney, one of only two Yankee hits on the evening. He finished 1-for-2 with a walk. Teixeira hadn't homered since June 15, but has 19 on the season with 54 RBI and a .246/.359/.536 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols rips 24th home run as Angels edge NYY
    Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the Angels edge the Yankees on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pujols tied the game at 1-1 when he ripped a solo home run to straightaway center field off of Ivan Nova. He has 24 on the season and seems like a good bet to cross the 40-homer threshold by season's end, which would be the first time he will have done that since 2010. Pujols has also knocked in 49 runs while batting .265/.332/.558. 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
    Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Mauer collects two RBI in win over Reds
    Joe Mauer went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Mauer scored a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning before adding an RBI single in the eighth. It was Mauer's first multi-RBI game since June 5, as he totaled nine RBI for the month of June. The multi-hit game was just his fifth this month. With Tuesday's game, Mauer is now hitting .263/.334/.370 with 39 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Bour hits seventh homer in win over Giants
    Justin Bour hit his seventh home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: The solo homer was his only hit in four at-bats on the night. He's now got seven homers in 50 games with the Marlins. The 27-year-old is hitting .254/.331/.454 overall. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:50 pm
  • Espinosa's 3-hit, 2-double night aids in win
    Danny Espinosa doubled twice with an RBI and two runs scored in a 3-for-5 effort as the Nationals topped the Braves 6-1 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Espinosa sparked a four-run first inning with an RBI double. He later scored on a Wilson Ramos single. He singled to lead off the third inning and eventually scored following A.J. Pierzynski's throwing error. Espinosa had been slumping, batting .107 (3-for-28) since June 20. He's batting .259/.336/.438 overall with eight home runs, 23 RBI, and 37 runs scored. Rotoworld.com

  • Ortiz launches 13th home run in a win vs. TOR
    David Ortiz hit a solo home run in a 1-for-4 effort as the Red Sox took down the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ortiz made it a 4-0 game when he slugged a solo home run off of Marco Estrada in the third inning. He's gone yard in two of his last three games, giving him 13 on the year with 36 RBI and a .228/.313/.422 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (foot) goes through full workout
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) went through a full workout on Tuesday, hitting, fielding grounders and doing some running.

    Advice: He'll go through a similar workout on Wednesday before being re-evaluated. It's possible at that point Zimmerman will be cleared to begin a rehab assignment, as it would appear he could be activated by next week. "He hasn’t hit a groundball to short and had to run full-speed to first yet, so that’s the telling sign," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "There’s no way to simulate that unless you get in a game situation and it happens naturally and he reacts. Going five steps to his left to dive for a ball or having to turn first to third, you can’t do it, you can’t simulate that, it’s never the same as being in competition." Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman (wrist) might not return before break
    Freddie Freeman (wrist) might be held out until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: The Braves had been optimistic about getting him back before the break, but that's looking unlikely now. Freeman hasn't had a setback with his right wrist, but it makes sense to give him a little extra time. "We were hoping we could get him shortly after the 15 days, but I think it’s going to be a little longer than that," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Not quite sure how much longer. We had our fingers crossed and were optimistic to get him (then or soon after), but I think it’s going to be little longer." Rotoworld.com

    Athletics optioned INF Max Muncy to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Muncy batted .203/.273/.367 with two home runs across 88 plate appearances with the A's. The 24-year-old corner infielder has posted big numbers at Triple-A and should get another shot in the majors soon enough. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Morse has returned to Miami after tweaking a back muscle during his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Morse was considered likely to be activated Tuesday, but that's obviously not going to happen now. No word yet on how much time he'll miss. The 33-year-old has already been sidelined since May 23 with a finger sprain. Rotoworld.com

  • Goldschmidt adds 2 RBI, 2 SB in D'Backs win
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run single, and two stolen bases as the Diamondbacks pounded their way to a win over the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt is now on a 10-game hitting streak, extended with a single in the sixth inning just ahead of a Yasmany Tomas home run. Goldy then ripped a two-run single in the eighth to cap off a four-run frame. He's having a bonkers year, carrying a .352/.467/.637 triple-slash line with 20 home runs, 64 RBI, 15 stolen bases, 55 runs scored, and 60 walks. Rotoworld.com

  • Cron's homer does the job in win vs. Yankees
    C.J. Cron went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, helping the Angels edge the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Cron, recently recalled from Triple-A, drilled his second big league home run of the season in the seventh inning off of CC Sabathia to pad the Angels' lead to 4-1. He hasn't hit much in the majors this season, but has crushed Triple-A competition in two short stints. Rotoworld.com

  • Ortiz homers, helping Red Sox beat the Rays
    David Ortiz walked and hit a two-run home run in four plate appearances Sunday as the Red Sox took down the Rays.

    Advice: Ortiz made it a 4-0 game when he clubbed a two-run home run to right-center off of Chris Archer, one of three homers his team hit on the afternoon. The veteran has 12 home runs on the season, but has hit half of them in the last three and a half weeks. He has also knocked in 35 runs while batting .231/.318/.420. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse (finger) expected to rejoin Marlins
    Joe Frisaro of MLB.com believes that Michael Morse will rejoin the Marlins within the next couple of days.

    Advice: With the injury to Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlins need a powerful bat in the middle of their lineup, and hope that Morse is healthy enough to provide that. He has looked good on his minor league rehab assignment and should be activated before the end of the weekend. Rotoworld.com

  • Yasmani Grandal sitting again on Friday
    Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

  • Ryan Zimmerman (foot) takes swings off tee
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) took 25 swings off a tee on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was also able to take throws at first base and walk on a treadmill as he continues his recovery from plantar fasciitis. He'll require a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Nationals which puts a potential return at some point in mid-July. Rotoworld.com

  • Freddie Freeman gets PRP injection in wrist
    Freddie Freeman received a platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injection in his right wrist earlier this week.

    Advice: Freeman was placed on the disabled list this week with what was termed as a right wrist contusion. The hope is that the PRP injection will help speed up the healing process. It's unlikely he'll be ready when he's first eligible on July 3, but the Braves are optimistic it could happen prior to the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul Goldschmidt hits 20th homer
    Paul Goldschmidt launched his 20th homer of the year Wednesday against the Rockies.

    Advice: Goldschmidt's 20th homer came in his 71st game of the season. Last year, he hit 19 in 109 games before a fractured hand ended his season. He's also surpassed his 2014 total in steals (12 to 9) and he's getting close to last year's walk total (57 to 64). Rotoworld.com

  • David Ortiz hits two-run homer
    David Ortiz hit a two-run homer off Bud Norris in Boston's win Wednesday.

    Advice: Ortiz has five homers in his last 13 games after hitting six in his first 52. All 11 of his homers on the season have come against righties. Southpaws have completely owned him this year, but there aren't many AL hitters with better numbers versus right-handers. Rotoworld.com

  • Zimmerman (foot) takes throws at first base
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) took throws at first base on Wednesday.

    Advice: Nationals manager Matt Williams said he also walked briskly on a treadmill for 15 minutes and that the team hopes he can resume jogging soon. "For right now, he is making good progress. The pressure on the plantar fasciitis is being reduced and he is feeling better about it," Williams said. Zimmerman was prescribed only rest for the foot ailment, so as long as he's feeling good he can continue to work toward a return. It's unclear whether he'll need a rehab assignment before being activated. Rotoworld.com

  • Teixeira drives home two in return Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira finished 3-for-5 with two RBI in the Yankees' rout of the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: That cortisone shot for his neck injury apparently did the trick. All of Teixeira's hits were singles, but he drove in one run in the Yankees' three-run fourth inning and another run in the Yankees' four-run seventh inning. The veteran first baseman is batting .259/.369/.557 with 51 RBI in 66 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Morse (finger) could be activated at some point during the Marlins' homestand, which runs through June 30.

    Advice: Morse has batted .286/.375/.476 with one homer over six rehab games as he works his way back from a a sprained right finger. He was hitting just .211/.268/.289 before the injury, but with Justin Bour falling back to earth Morse should start getting the lion's share of playing time at first base again. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves place Freeman (wrist) on 15-day DL
    Braves placed 1B Freddie Freeman on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 18, with a right wrist contusion.

    Advice: The move is now official. Freeman's wrist issue isn't believed to be serious, so there's a chance he'll be ready to return after the minimum 15 days, but it's still a big loss for Altanta. The 25-year-old is batting .299/.367/.520 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI over 66 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman (wrist) to DL a 'strong possibility'
    MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports that "it sounds like there's a strong possibility" Freddie Freeman (wrist) will be placed on the disabled list.

    Advice: Results of the MRI on Freeman's right wrist haven't been revealed yet, but it was apparently bad enough that he'll be out at least a couple weeks. The move likely won't be made official until Tuesday since the Braves are off Monday. Kelly Johnson has been filling in for Freeman at first base and should continue to do so, although Joey Terdoslavich is expected to be called up to take Freeman's roster spot and he could also see some time at first.

    Advice: Teixeira has been bothered by a neck issue for about 10 days and was sent for an MRI. He's sitting out Monday and will be on the bench Tuesday, as well. "It's hard to turn," Girardi said. "I think we've all experienced that. It can be frustrating, and it's irritating. It's something that's tough to play in, because obviously they have to turn a lot in this game." Rotoworld.com

Each of Grandal's long balls, and all four that the Dodgers hit in the contest, came off of San Francisco reliever Yusmeiro Petit. Grandal has been an absolute force offensively for the Dodgers this year, slashing .276/.386/.494 with 10 homers and 26 RBI in 170 at-bats. His defense is also drawing positive marks from various metrics. Rotoworld.com
