  • Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) not in Sunday's lineup
    Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Mets.

    Advice: Ellsbury tested out his hip during pregame workouts but was deemed unable to go. Chris Young will once again start in center field in his place and is batting second on Sunday. Ellsbury is expected to return to the lineup on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman doubles twice in loss to PHI
    Freddie Freeman hit a pair of doubles in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Freeman finished the contest 2-for-4 with the two doubles and a run scored. He's now hit five doubles on the season. In every area but average, Freeman's been producing in the early going, as he has four home runs, eight RBI and 11 runs scored to go with a .235/.307/.485 batting line. Given that he hit .288 last season and .319 in 2013, that average isn't likely to stay low for long. Rotoworld.com

  • Rajai Davis departs with tight right groin
    Rajai Davis was removed from Sunday's game against the Indians due to tightness in his right groin.

    Advice: Davis pulled up while running to first base on a single in the ninth inning. He appears to have avoided anything significant though and is considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Rajai Davis leaves with leg injury
    Rajai Davis exited Sunday's game against the Indians with an apparent leg injury.

    Advice: Davis had to be pinch-run for after singling in the ninth inning. The Tigers should provide an update on his status shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Mets ink Brooks Conrad to minors deal
    Mets signed INF Brooks Conrad to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Conrad made it up to the majors briefly with the Padres last season but spent the bulk of the year in Triple-A, batting .278/.349/.529 with 18 homers. He's merely a depth guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Todd Redmond outrighted to Triple-A
    Blue Jays sent RHP Todd Redmond outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: He cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. Redmond has allowed eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings of relief this season for Toronto. Rotoworld.com

  • Hardy (shoulder) needs 3-4 rehab games
    J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will need at least 3-4 rehab games before being activated from the disabled list.

    Advice: He'll rest until Wednesday after being given a cortisone injection in his ailing left shoulder Saturday, so that means Hardy won't be activated until next weekend in a best-case scenario. Everth Cabrera will continue to fill in at shortstop for the Orioles. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Bauer (illness) could play catch Sun.
    Trevor Bauer (illness) could try to play catch on Sunday.

    Advice: Bauer had to be scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to food poisoning. He's currently slated to take the ball on Tuesday, but it's possible he'll be pushed back again if he's not feeling up to it yet. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Reyes not in lineup on Sunday
    Jose Reyes is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Reyes hasn't done much at the plate this week while battling a small fracture in his left rib cage, but this just appears to be a day of rest. Ryan Goins is filling in at shortstop, while Devon Travis is in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:36 am
  • Desmond Jennings (knee) not in lineup Sunday
    Desmond Jennings (knee) is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Jennings tweaked his left knee during Saturday's game. It doesn't appear to be a major concern at this point, but it's also unclear when he might be ready to return to the lineup. The Rays are going with Brandon Guyer in left field, Kevin Kiermaier in center and Steve Souza in right on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:13 am
  • Marisnick (quad) likely to sit again Sunday
    Jake Marisnick (quad) is expected to sit out again on Sunday.

    Advice: Marisnick is dealing with some soreness in his right quad area. He was able to do some running prior to Saturday's game with no issues, but the Astros are expected to rest him one more day. "Jake, we’ll well monitor him day to day," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He’s available but I’m going to try not to use him unless I have to. He’s bouncing around fine. I’m hopeful for (Sunday), but if it’s not (Sunday) and he needs another day we’re going to still be cautious with him." Rotoworld.com

  • Lucas Luetge optioned to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned LHP Lucas Luetge to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: He tossed 2 1/3 scoreless frames in his lone appearance on Saturday. Luetge is being sent out to clear room for Roenis Elias, who will start Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Brian Dozier goes 2-for-5 as leadoff man
    Moved up to the leadoff spot, Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with a double, a walk, a steal and two runs scored in the Twins' 8-5 victory over the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: That's more like it. Dozier obviously belongs at or very near the top of the Twins lineup, not in the cleanup spot that he had occupied recently. He raised his average to .215 tonight, and the steal was his first of the year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Elvis Andrus goes 2-for-4, steals base
    Elvis Andrus finished 2-for-4 with a stolen base Saturday against the Angels.

    Advice: Andrus has reached base in five straight, a major accomplishment for a Rangers hitter this year. Unfortunately, he's still batting just .208 overall. Worse, he's drawn one walk in 73 at-bats, an unusual problem for the light-hitting shortstop; if nothing else, he's usually managed a decent walk rate for a guy with so little power. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Tulowitzki hits home run in loss to Giants
    Troy Tulowitzki hit a solo home run in Saturday's 11-inning loss to the Giants.

    Advice: The home run was Tulowitzki's second of the season and gave him nine RBI. He also added a single to finish the game 2-for-5. While his .303/.309/.530 slash-line is impressive in its own right (though his lack of walks is somewhat odd), owners should be even more pleased that Tulo's showing no ill-effect or discomfort from last year's hip surgery. If he can stay healthy, his bat remains one of the best in the game. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • De La Rosa fans seven in second start
    Jorge De La Rosa struck out seven Giants on Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits.

    Advice: De La Rosa missed most of April with a groin injury. His first start, on April 20th against the Padres, was a nine-run disaster, but the pitcher showed improvement on Saturday. De La Rosa put up respectable numbers for the Rockies last season, posting a 4.10 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 184 1/3 innings. He'll try to give up fewer than nine runs when he faces the Padres again in his next start. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Trevor Bauer in line to pitch Tuesday vs. KC
    Trevor Bauer will start Tuesday's game against the Royals.

    Advice: Food poisoning forced him to miss Saturday's start. Bauer has looked sharp all year, limiting opponents to a .125 batting average. The 24-year-old has collected at least seven strikeouts in each of his three starts. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:58 pm
  • J.J. Hardy receives a shoulder injection
    J.J. Hardy was given a shoulder injection on Saturday.

    Advice: He'll rest up for a few days before testing his shoulder again on Wednesday. Hardy was originally expected to be back at the end of the month, but that's no longer an option. We won't know how close Hardy is until he begins a rehab assignment. Everth Cabrera has been filling in at shortstop for the Orioles. Rotoworld.com

  • Desmond Jennings exits with sore knee
    Desmond Jennings left Saturday's game with left knee soreness.

    Advice: Kevin Kiermaier took over for Jennings in center field to begin the eighth inning. Jennings went 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts before exiting. He's day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:06 pm
  • Jacoby Ellsbury leaves Saturday's game early
    Jacoby Ellsbury left Saturday's game with hip tightness.

    Advice: He went 0-for-3 before exiting in the eighth inning. The Yankees are hopeful Ellsbury won't miss any time, but if he does sit out Sunday, expect Chris Young to fill in at center field. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:09 pm
  • Rajai Davis runs wild as Tigers top Indians
    Rajai Davis went 2-for-4 and swiped three bases on Saturday as the Tigers topped the Indians 4-1 at Comerica Park.

    Advice: Davis was the spark plug atop the Tigers lineup, running wild every chance that he got and scoring three of the team's four runs in the ballgame. He's off to another strong start in 2015, slashing .297/.409/.405 with six steals on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Bauer a late scratch due to illness
    Trevor Bauer was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to illness.

    Advice: T.J. House, who had been scheduled to go Sunday, will start in his place against the Tigers. Bauer could work on Sunday if he's feeling better. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:12 am
  • Reyes does not record hit in big loss to Rays
    Jose Reyes went 0-for-3 in Friday's blowout loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Reyes, who is dealing with a small fracture in his left rib, went hit-less against the Rays and has not recorded a hit in his last seven at-bats. Stretching beyond the last few games, he has just one hit since April 21, spanning 15 at-bats. While he has avoided a stay on the disabled list for the time being, it's not a surprise that the speedy shortstop has struggled of late. Reyes is hitting just .250/.268/.308 and has limited fantasy value until he starts getting on base more. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:52 pm
  • Brian Dozier goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Brian Dozier went 0-for-4 and struck out three times in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Moving Dozier into the cleanup spot hasn't done the Twins any good; he's 5-for-28 with two RBI in eight games there. He should be the team's second best OBP guy behind Joe Mauer, so it'd certainly make more sense to have him batting first or second. Ideally, he'd hit first and Danny Santana would be dropped to the ninth spot. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:25 pm
  • Ellsbury launches first homer of season
    Jacoby Ellsbury hit his first home run of the season in Friday's win over the Mets, finishing the game 2-for-5.

    Advice: Ellsbury smacked the solo home run off of Jacob deGrom in the third inning. It doubled his RBI total. He now has two driven in on the year. Math. Ellsbury has been hitting for average in the early going, but the power's been difficult to come by. Fantasy owners should be happy to see him finally get on the board. He hit 16 bombs with the Yankees in 2014 and while he's probably never going to match the career-best 32 he launched in 2011, a home run total between 13-17 is still well within reach for the speedy centerfielder. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:31 pm
  • Mariners recall Lucas Luetge from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled LHP Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The 28-year-old hurler appeared in 12 games for the Marlins in 2014, posting a 5.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over nine innings. His stay is likely to be short lived as the M's must decide how to handle Hisashi Iwakuma's vacant rotation spot on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Marisnick scratched with leg discomfort
    Jake Marisnick was scratched from the Astros starting lineup on Friday due to right leg discomfort.

    Advice: Marisnick will also sit out on Saturday as a precautionary measure. The young outfielder felt something while running the bases in Wednesday's contest. Robbie Grossman is getting the start in his place on Friday and batting ninth against the Athletics. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 5:21 pm
  • Troy Tulowitzki absent from Friday's lineup
    Troy Tulowitzki is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It appears to just be a day of rest. Daniel Descalso is starting at shortstop Friday in Tulowitzki's place. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:20 pm
  • Ellsbury scores both Yankees runs in victory
    Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, and a stolen base while scoring both Yankee runs in a victory over the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Ellsbury walked, stole second base, advanced to third on a ground out, and scored on a balk in the sixth inning to tie the game at one apiece. In the eighth, he doubled, advanced to third base on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on a Brian McCann ground out. Ellsbury has been an on-base machine in the season's first month, as evidenced by his .286/.384/.317 triple-slash line. He's a modest 4-for-7 in the stolen base department, however. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:43 pm
  • Jose Reyes (rib) back in Blue Jays' lineup
    Jose Reyes (rib) is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

    Advice: Reyes is dealing with a small fracture in his left rib cage and will reportedly try to hit exclusively from the right side of the plate for now. There's no telling if things will get worse or whether his production will suffer, so we wouldn't say he's out of the woods yet. Still, he has at least avoided a trip to the disabled list. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:54 pm
  • Hardy (shoulder) to work out in Triple-A
    J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will work out with Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.

    Advice: Hardy, who is working his way back from a left shoulder strain, did the same thing with Double-A Bowie last Friday. While he's doing some baseball activities, he's not ready to begin a minor league assignment and it's still unclear when he will be. Rotoworld.com

  • De La Rosa hammered in return to the mound
    Jorge De La Rosa's season debut didn't go well, as the lefty was hammered for nine runs (seven earned) in two innings in a loss to the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: De La Rosa missed the first two weeks of the season with a groin injury. The Padres had no issues squaring him up, as the lefty yielded nine hits and a walk while striking out three. The nine runs were split up with five in the first inning and four in the second. De La Rosa will try to bounce back in his next start at home against the Giants. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:57 pm
  • Bauer tosses 7 shutout frames in no-decision
    Trevor Bauer continued to impress, hurling seven scoreless frames, but took a no-decision as the Indians lost 4-3 on Monday.

    Advice: Bauer allowed just four hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven. Considered by many to be a breakout candidate for the 2015 season, Bauer has bolted out to a 2-0 record with a 0.95 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a 26/11 K/BB ratio in 19 innings. He'll need to have the command he showed on Monday if his success is going to last over a full season. Bauer matches up against the Tigers in Detroit next. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:35 pm
  • Jorge De La Rosa activated from disabled list
    Rockies activated LHP Jorge De La Rosa from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He'll make his season debut on Monday against the Padres after getting a late start to the season due to a groin ailment. De La Rosa has fared pretty well in his career at Coors Field (3.98 ERA), but he's a risky play in this one against a good Padres lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 20, 2:48 pm
  • De La Rosa (groin) to debut Monday vs. SD
    Jorge De La Rosa (groin) will make his 2015 season debut on Monday night versus the Padres.

    Advice: De La Rosa missed the first two weeks of the regular season with a groin injury that bothered him throughout spring training. The 34-year-old left-hander pitched pretty well in a pair of minor league rehab starts, but he's not a great fantasy bet against a good Padres offense Monday at Coors Field. De La Rosa posted a 4.10 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 139/67 K/BB ratio in 184 1/3 innings last season for Colorado. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 20, 11:14 am
  • Tulowitzki goes hit-less in loss to Dodgers
    Troy Tulowitzki did not record a hit in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Tulo ended the game 0-for-3. He shouldn't hang his head, though, as the Dodgers combined to hold the Rockies to just four hits in the contest. Even with the uneventful day at the park, Tulowitzki's still hitting .326/.340/.543 with one home run, seven RBI and eight runs scored. As always, if Tulowitzki can remain healthy, he will be one of the top offensive producers in baseball. To this point, his hip has not started barking at him. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 19, 5:22 pm
  • Jose Reyes (rib) could play on Tuesday
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday that Jose Reyes could return to the Blue Jays lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Reyes will be limited to hitting only from the right side of the plate as he's dealing with a small fracture in his left rib cage, but it looks as though he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 19, 1:15 pm
  • Jake Marisnick not in lineup Sunday
    Jake Marisnick is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Marisnick is one of the few regulars for the club who's hitting (.333/.344/.533), but he'll take a seat in this one. Colby Rasmus is covering center field, with Robbie Grossman handling left. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 19, 8:37 am
  • Jennings continues to struggle in loss to NYY
    Desmond Jennings went 0-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Jennings was far from the only one scuffling in the contest, as the Rays as a team collected just three hits. He's off to a slow start in 2015 and is currently hitting just .195/.306/.195. In 41 at-bats, he has just eight hits, none for extra bases. Jennings isn't as bad a hitter as the early season numbers say, but the once-heralded prospect has yet to put together the kind of power-speed season that scouts envisioned for him. To this point, his season-best for home runs was 14 in 2013 and his season best for steals was 31 in 2012. His steal totals have dropped each of the last three seasons. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 18, 8:32 pm
  • Freeman homers again as Braves fall to Jays
    Freddie Freeman homered for the second consecutive game in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    Advice: Freeman entered with terrific lifetime numbers against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and delivered a two-run bomb off the veteran right-hander in the third inning. Freeman finished the day 2-for-4 and is now hitting .256/.319/.581 with four long balls and eight RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 18, 1:02 pm
  • Freddie Freeman's two-run blast powers Braves
    Freddie Freeman's two-run homer in the eighth inning on Friday powered the Braves to an 8-7 victory over the visiting Blue Jays.

    Advice: At the time, Freeman's blast off southpaw Brett Cecil increased the Braves advantage to 8-5, but after a late rally by the opposition it would prove to be the difference in the ballgame. Freeman finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .231/.286/.513 with three bombs and six RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 17, 7:39 pm
  • Jose Reyes (rib) ruled out through weekend
    Jose Reyes (rib) will not play this weekend.

    Advice: The Blue Jays will wait until after Monday's off day to see if Reyes is feeling well enough to play through a small fracture in his left rib cage. If he's still in pain Tuesday, they'll place him on the disabled list. Ryan Goins is expected to fill in at shortstop while Reyes is out. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 17, 12:31 pm
  • Jose Reyes dealing with fracture in rib cage
    An MRI has revealed that Jose Reyes is dealing with a small fracture in his left rib cage.

    Advice: The Blue Jays haven't ruled out him being able to play through it, as manager John Gibbons said the club should know later Friday whether a trip to the disabled list will be required. Reyes had been dealing with the ailment for a bit before being removed from Thursday's game when it became too painful. Ryan Goins is expected to fill in at shortstop while Reyes is out. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 17, 8:28 am
  • Jose Reyes (ribs) will not play on Friday
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons confirmed that Jose Reyes (ribs) will not play on Friday.

    Advice: The veteran infielder is expected to take the next couple of days off, but is hopeful that he will be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, though how quickly his oblique responds to treatment may determine that. Ryan Goins is expected to fill in at shortstop in his absence. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 16, 7:40 pm
  • Jose Reyes leaves game with rib injury
    Jose Reyes was removed from Thursday's game against the Rays in the first inning due to soreness in his left rib area.

    Advice: Reyes has been batting an oblique issue for awhile, and this could be a recurrence of that, as opposed to a new injury. He was slated for a day of rest on Saturday, and that could be extended now that he's dealing with this ailment. The Jays should have an update on his status after the game. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 16, 4:35 pm
  • Reyes to get the day off Saturday
    Jose Reyes is slated to get the day off Saturday.

    Advice: The Blue Jays are resting him for a day game after a night game on turf, which Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com writes could become a regular thing. Keep this in mind as the season moves along. Steve Tolleson will start at shortstop on Saturday while Ryan Goins will be a late-inning defensive replacement. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 16, 1:42 pm
  • Hardy (shoulder) to work out in Double-A
    J.J. Hardy (shoulder) will work out with Double-A Bowie on Friday.

    Advice: Hardy, who is coming back from a left shoulder strain, took a full round of batting practice Wednesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list. He hasn't been cleared to play in rehab games yet, but he's getting closer. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays DFA struggling righty Redmond
    Blue Jays designated RHP Todd Redmond for assignment.

    Advice: Redmond had allowed eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings of relief this season for Toronto. The 29-year-old righty will probably make it through waivers unclaimed. Rotoworld.com
