  • Bautista (shoulder) will take BP on Monday
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) is planning to take batting practice before Monday's game in Boston.

    Advice: He won't be in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Monday night, but Bautista does expect to return at some point during this three-game series at Fenway Park. The 34-year-old slugger has been out since last Tuesday with a right shoulder strain. He had four home runs and 10 RBI in 14 games before the injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Perez opts out of deal with Brewers
    Brewers released RHP Chris Perez.

    Advice: Perez signed a minor league contract with the Brewers on March 31 but exercised his opt-out Monday after allowing 14 hits and eight earned runs in 7 2/3 innings at Triple-A Colorado Springs. The 29-year-old former All-Star closer will hope for better results with a change of scenery. He posted a 4.27 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 46 1/3 innings with the Dodgers in 2014. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Franklin (oblique) near rehab assignment
    Nick Franklin (oblique) expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment at some point this week.

    Advice: Franklin seemed to be trending toward minor league games early last week, but the Rays slowed his rehab as a precautionary measure. The 24-year-old was poised to open the 2015 season as Tampa Bay's starting second baseman before suffering an oblique strain at the end of spring training. He should be ready to rock in early May and may carry some value in deep fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • CarGo says he's ready to emerge out of slump
    Carlos Gonzalez believes he's nearly ready to bust out of his early-season offensive slump.

    Advice: Gonzalez is batting just .197/.229/.364 in 17 games this season, but he went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Saturday and slugged his first home run since April 8 on Sunday. "I'm trying to use the whole field," CarGo said Sunday evening. "When I am doing well, I can hit to left with power and line drives into the gap. When I see that coming off my bat, I know that something good is coming." Rotoworld.com

  • Rays outright Allan Dykstra to AAA level
    Rays sent 1B Allan Dykstra outright to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Dykstra was designated for assignment by the Rays this weekend to clear a roster spot for James Loney. The 27-year-old passed through waivers unclaimed despite owning an intriguing .856 career minor league OPS. Dykstra should get another shot eventually. Rotoworld.com

  • Pirela (concussion) begins rehab assignment
    Jose Pirela (concussion) began a rehab assignment Sunday with the High-A Tampa Yankees.

    Advice: Pirela served as Tampa's designated hitter in his rehab debut and went 0-for-4. The 25-year-old catcher had been on the shelf since March 22 with a bad concussion. He'll head to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's fully healthy and his timing is right. Rotoworld.com

  • Colome (pneumonia) goes six strong in rehab
    Alex Colome (illness) tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday at Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Colome yielded only four hits and walked none while striking out six. He threw 45 of his 63 pitches for strikes. The 26-year-old right-hander arrived late to Rays camp this spring due to visa issues and then caught a bad case of pneumonia once he did finally make it to Florida. Colome finally appears ready to join the Tampa Bay rotation and could be worth a look in some deeper fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Rajai Davis not worried about groin tightness
    Rajai Davis said Sunday evening that he doesn't believe his groin injury is serious.

    Advice: Davis had to jog to first base in the ninth inning Sunday after recording his third hit of the game and was then removed. But he expressed optimism about the groin discomfort in the clubhouse afterward. "I don't think it's serious at all," Davis said. "I just think it's sore, tight. I've been running around on it a lot the last couple of days. I guess I wasn't used to that. If I get my body used to it, I think I'll be all right." The 34-year-old is batting .341/.449/.488 with six stolen bases and 11 runs scored in 14 games (10 starts) this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Marisnick homers, scores three times Sun.
    Jake Marisnick (quad) went 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI, two stolen bases, and three runs scored in his return to the Astros' lineup Sunday against the A's.

    Advice: Marisnick sat out Friday and Saturday due to soreness in his right quad, but he returned with a vengeance on Sunday afternoon in Oakland. The 24-year-old center fielder is now batting .364/.408/.591 with two home runs and six stolen bases in 15 games this season. Hopefully he'll start moving up the Astros' batting order. Marisnick has hit ninth in all 15 of his starts so far. Rotoworld.com

  • Eovaldi hit hard by Mets in no-decision
    Nathan Eovaldi was hit hard in a no-decision against the Mets on Sunday, allowing four runs on seven hits in just 4 1/3 innings of work.

    Advice: The hard-throwing right-hander did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the night without issuing a free pass, but couldn't get himself out of a jam in the fifth inning to earn a potential victory. While he owns an impressive 20/5 K/BB ratio through 21 2/3 innings on the season, Eovaldi will carry a 4.15 and worrisome 1.66 WHIP into Sunday's matchup against the Red Sox in Boston. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:54 pm
  • Morrow superb over seven innings vs. LAD
    Brandon Morrow pitched a gem against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing just one run over seven innings.

    Advice: This is the third time in four starts that Morrow has pitched seven innings (he went six innings in his other start). Pretty impressive for a guy who had to win the No. 5 spot in the rotation out of spring training. Against the Dodgers on Sunday, he struck out four, scattered five hits, and walked just one. Morrow's only mistake came on a solo home run by Alex Guerrero in the fifth inning. Otherwise, everything came up aces. Through 27 innings, he holds a 2.67 ERA and a 19/6 K/BB ratio. And he has the talent to keep it rolling as long as he stays healthy. Morrow will look to continue his sparkling run next Saturday at home against the Rockies. 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
    Yesterday, 1:10 pm
  • 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

  • Mo confirms Waino (Achilles) likely done
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak confirmed in an interview on KMOX 1120 AM on Sunday that Adam Wainwright (Achilles) is likely done for the season.

    Advice: "I would imagine that with this injury he will not pitch again this season, but we want to wait for the reports Monday," the GM said. It's confirmation of an earlier report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal as well as what others had speculated. Losing Wainwright is obviously a major hit to the Cards as they seek their third straight division title and fifth straight playoff appearance. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Cook recalled from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled RHP Ryan Cook from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Cook failed to crack the Opening Day roster following a poor Cactus League showing, but he bounced back with five scoreless appearances at Nashville. The A's will use him in middle relief. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:04 am
  • Ryan Braun absent from Sunday's lineup
    Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day of rest for the struggling slugger. Aramis Ramirez is also getting a breather, as Gerardo Parra is in right field and Hector Gomez is at third base. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:24 am
  • Jose Bautista hopes to return early this week
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) is hoping to return to the lineup during the series versus the Red Sox early this week.

    Advice: Bautista hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sore right shoulder, although he reported continued improvement on Sunday. The club will ease the outfielder back into things in the designated hitter spot initially before eventually returning him to the field. Michael Saunders is in right field Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:58 am
  • Adam Wainwright (Achilles) placed on DL
    Cardinals placed RHP Adam Wainwright on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle and Achilles injury.

    Advice: Wainwright will undergo an MRI on Monday, but the feeling is that he blew out his Achilles on Saturday and will need season-ending surgery. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney are the most likely options to take his spot in the rotation later this week. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Yesterday, 7:02 am
  • Jay Bruce sitting out on Sunday
    Jay Bruce is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He had been slated to sit before Saturday's game was rained out and remains out of the lineup the next day. Brennan Boesch is in right field Sunday in Bruce's place. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Waino (Achilles) likely done for 2015
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the "expectation" is that Adam Wainwright will miss the rest of the season with a left Achilles injury.

    Advice: He's yet to undergo an MRI (that comes Monday), but the Cardinals don't appear to be optimistic about a diagnosis. It's obviously a massive blow for St. Louis, as Wainwright had allayed some concerns about his elbow with a strong start (1.44 ERA) to the season. The club does at least have some depth to fall back on with Marco Gonzales at Triple-A, although he's currently out with a shoulder/pectoral issue. Gonzales and Jaime Garcia (shoulder) are the likely long-term options to replace Waino in the rotation, but for now the club is likely to go with Tyler Lyons or Tim Cooney. They could also consider moving Carlos Villanueva from the bullpen to the rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Wainwright: 'Thought I got hit by something'
    Adam Wainwright acknowledged after Saturday's game that the injury is to the back of his left ankle.

    Advice: In other words, it's his Achilles tendon. And if he ruptured it, the ace right-hander could be done for the rest of the 2015 season. "I thought I got hit by something," said Wainwright, who pulled up lame after a fifth-inning pop-out on Saturday night in Milwaukee. "If you look at the replay, I get out of the box and I looked back to think the catcher’s mask must have hit me or the bat must have hit me, something must have hit me." Rotoworld.com

  • Waino leaves with apparent Achilles injury
    Adam Wainwright was lifted from Saturday's game against the Brewers with an apparent left foot injury.

    Advice: Wainwright pulled up lame on his first step out of the batter's box following a fifth-inning pop-out and could barely make his way off the field. It looked like an Achilles injury, though the Cardinals are calling it a "left ankle injury" for now. Wainwright had tossed four scoreless innings against Milwaukee, lowering his season ERA to 1.44. He'll be reevaluated back in St. Louis. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Saturday, 1:19 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez not in lineup on Saturday
    Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for the struggling outfielder who is hitting just .197/.231/.328 with an 11/3 K/BB ratio in 61 at-bats. Drew Stubbs is starting in his place against opposing right-hander Tim Hudson. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:36 pm
  • Alex Colome to make one more rehab start
    Alex Colome (illness) is slated to make one more minor league rehab start before rejoining the Rays rotation.

    Advice: He can't get back soon enough as the Rays are currently dealing with trotting out the likes of Erasmo Ramirez every fifth day. With Alex Cobb working his way back, Colome's time in the rotation could also be short lived. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays designate Allan Dykstra for assignment
    Rays designated 1B Allan Dykstra for assignment.

    Advice: Dykstra is the odd man out with James Loney back in the fold, and his 40-man roster spot was needed for Everett Teaford who had his contract selected on Saturday. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, Dykstra will continue to function as organizational depth for the Rays. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for the struggling outfielder who is hitting just .164/.261/.328 with three homers and nine RBI on the year. Brennan Boesch is getting the start in his place and batting fifth against opposing right-hander Jake Arrieta. Rotoworld.com

  • Braun goes hit-less in loss to Cardinals
    Ryan Braun went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Braun also struck out twice. The former MVP has yet to hit anything other than a single. With 58 at-bats in the books, the small sample size is growing larger day-by-day. Braun's slashing just .241/.279/.293. The extra-base knocks should come eventually, but his days as a middle-of-the-lineup star could be fading. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:20 pm
  • 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
  • Bautista (shoulder) likely back this weekend
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) is likely to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend.

    Advice: Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Bautista's sore right shoulder is improving rapidly to the point that he's ruled out the possibility of a disabled list stint. The club will ease the outfielder back into things in the designated hitter spot initially before eventually returning him to the field. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:54 pm
  • Jose Bautista (shoulder) out again on Friday
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) remained out of the Blue Jays' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Jays are still confident that Joey Bats will be able to avoid the disabled list, but he'll miss a third straight contest with a right shoulder strain. Kevin Pillar is in right field Friday, with Steve Tolleson in left. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:43 pm
  • Rays option Allan Dykstra to Triple-A
    Rays optioned 1B Allan Dykstra to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Dykstra's brief stay with the Rays comes to an end as James Loney is slated to return from the disabled list on Friday. He managed to hit just .129/.289/.226 in 38 plate appearances with the big league club. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays not expected to send Bautista to DL
    The Blue Jays most likely won't be placing Jose Bautista (shoulder) on the disabled list.

    Advice: Good signs here. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Bautista "felt much better [on Thursday]." The slugger suffered a right shoulder strain on Tuesday trying to throw out Delmon Young at first base. While he's apparently improving, Bautista is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles. He'll try swinging on Friday and see how the shoulder reacts. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:24 pm
  • Joey Bats (shoulder) not in TOR lineup Thurs.
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) is not in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Thursday evening.

    Advice: Bautista suffered a right shoulder strain Tuesday when he tried to gun Delmon Young out at first base from his position in right field. The slugger could be placed on the 15-day disabled list if he doesn't show improvement by the weekend. Kevin Pillar is starting in right field and Danny Valencia is in left field Thursday against the Orioles. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:39 pm
  • CarGo getting day of rest on Thursday
    Carlos Gonzalez is getting a day off Thursday.

    Advice: Charlie Blackmon will start in right field and Drew Stubbs will cover center in the matinee versus the Padres. Rotoworld.com

  • Joey Bats (shoulder) could land on 15-day DL
    Jose Bautista was unable to make warmup throws on Wednesday due to soreness in his right shoulder and could need a trip to the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Bautista had been dealing with shoulder soreness for over a week and aggravated it Tuesday when he tried to throw Delmon Young out at first base from his position in right field. Kevin Pillar is starting Wednesday in Bautista's place. "Joey Bats" slugged his fourth home run of the season in Tuesday's rout of the Orioles but he has an odd .149/.322/.426 overall batting line. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:09 pm
  • Jose Bautista not in Wednesday's lineup
    Jose Bautista is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: We're sure it's a total coincidence that he's sitting one day after getting into it with a few Orioles players. Kevin Pillar is in right field Wednesday in Bautista's place, with Ryan Goins handling left. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:49 pm
  • Bruce blasts grand slam in win over Brewers
    Jay Bruce hit a grand slam as the Reds outslugged the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bruce sent a Mike Fiers fastball deep into the night to get the Reds on the board in the third inning. The homer was his third of the season. Bruce also walked and stole a base in the game, giving him two steals on the year. Bruce now has nine RBI to go with a .200/.310/.400 slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Morrow serves up five runs in a no-decision
    Brandon Morrow yielded five runs in six innings in a no-decision as the Padres beat the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Morrow allowed six hits and a walk but the Rockies were able to arrange them well enough to plate five runs. Morrow struck out three on the evening in what was the worst of his three starts to begin the season. The right-hander has a 3.15 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 15/5 K/BB ratio in 20 innings. Morrow still hasn't gotten a decision; he'll hope for a win against the Dodgers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:00 pm
  • Eovaldi's 7 strong innings lead Yanks to win
    Nathan Eovaldi held the Tigers to one run over seven innings to record his first win of the season on Tuesday.

    Advice: Eovaldi scattered eight hits and a walk while striking out four on the evening. The Tigers entered the game boasting one of the American League's top offenses, so holding it to a run is a feat. The only run came in Eovaldi's final inning, when Yoenis Cespedes hit a sacrifice fly. Now with a 3.12 ERA, Eovaldi will look for his second win of the season in his next start at home against the Mets. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:11 pm
  • Bautista homers as the Blue Jays rout Orioles
    Jose Bautista hit a two-run home run -- his only hit in five at-bats -- in Tuesday's trouncing of the Orioles.

    Advice: Bautista added insult to injury with a seventh-inning blast off of Jason Garcia, pushing the Blue Jays' lead to 13-4. He has four home runs, but has had numerous oh-for's and one-for's this season, resulting in a lopsided .149/.322/.426 triple-slash line. Like his struggling teammate Edwin Encarnacion, who homered twice on Tuesday, we don't expect his offensive woes to persist. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:05 pm
  • Colome (illness) to continue rehab stint Tue.
    Alex Colome (illness) will continue his minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Colome, who is working his way back from pneumonia, allowed two runs in six innings across two rehab starts with High-A Charlotte. He's slated to throw four or five innings Tuesday and the next step could be for him to join the Rays' rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Braun slugs homer, but Brewers fall to Reds
    Ryan Braun provided the Brewers their only run with a ninth-inning solo home run in Monday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: The Brewers entered the bottom of the ninth trailing 6-0, so Braun's solo homer -- his first of the season -- off of Burke Badenhop barely made a dent. Braun has been off to a slow start this season, currently slashing .238/.273/.310 in 44 trips to the dish. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:47 pm
  • Wainwright outstanding in victory over Reds
    Adam Wainwright was outstanding in Sunday's victory over the Reds, allowing just one run on seven hits over eight strong frames.

    Advice: Wainwright punched out four on the evening while walking two. The only damage against him came on a two-out bloop RBI single off the bat of Brandon Phillips in the third inning. He went toe-to-toe with Mike Leake who was terrific on the other side as well and was eventually able to scratch out the win. He'll carry an impressive 1.71 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 14/3 K/BB ratio into Saturday's matchup against the Brewers in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • Braun leads off with pair of singles
    In his first career start leading off, Ryan Braun hit two singles against the Pirates.

    Advice: Braun finished the game 2-for-3. While the singles are nice, they marked a continuation of an odd start for Braun. After smacking 30 doubles and 19 home runs last season, Braun has yet to notch his first extra-base hit of the 2015 season. The power should come eventually, but it should be remembered that the former MVP underwent experimental thumb surgery in October. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 18, 7:07 pm
  • Ryan Braun hitting leadoff on Saturday
    Ryan Braun is serving as the Brewers leadoff hitter for the first time in his career on Saturday.

    Advice: Braun has struggled in the early going, slashing just .226/.250/.226, so perhaps the move was made to try to get him going. With Carlos Gomez sidelined, the Brewers are in desperate need of a spark atop their lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 18, 12:48 pm
  • Dykstra hits first major league home run
    Allen Dykstra connected for his first major league home run Friday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Dykstra hit a go-ahead three-run shot off Adam Warren in the fourth inning, but Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees battled back to get the win. Called up after James Loney's recent oblique strain, the 27-year-old is just 2-for-17 in the majors thus far, but he has drawn six walks. Rotoworld.com
