  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Butler fills up the box score as A's beat COL
    Billy Butler had a big night, going 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, two RBI, and three runs scored in Monday's win against the Rockies.

    Advice: Butler singled and scored in the first inning, clubbed a solo home run in the fourth, knocked in a run with a double in the eighth and later scored on Brett Lawrie's triple. Aside from a four-hit night on June 17, Butler hadn't done anything at the plate, batting a miserable .179 (10-for-56) since June 5. Overall, he's hitting .254/.315/.366 with six home runs and 34 RBI.

  • Carter swats 14th homer as Astros down KC
    Chris Carter swatted his 14th home run of the season in a 1-for-4 effort as the Astros downed the Royals 6-1 on Monday.

    Advice: Carter added some superfluous offense with a solo shot off of Brandon Finnegan in the fifth inning for what turned out to be the Astros' final run. The slugger is hitting .198/.315/.405 with 14 home runs and 38 RBI in 76 games. It's worth noting that, through 76 games last season, he had a .189/.269/.421 batting line with 15 home runs and 35 RBI. He finished the year at .227/.308/.491 with 37 home runs and 88 RBI, so a summer surge may yet await him.

  • Lucroy's four-hit night sparks Brewers to win
    Jonathan Lucroy tallied four hits in five at-bats, scoring twice and knocking in two runs to help the Brewers take down the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: All four hits were singles. He singled and scored in the first and third innings, then hit run-scoring singles in the sixth and eighth innings. The catcher missed about a month and a half of the season due to a broken toe and has only been able to muster a .235/.284/.302 batting line with one home run and 14 RBI on the year.
    Yesterday, 7:42 pm
  • Moreland powers Rangers with a pair of homers
    Mitch Moreland drilled a pair of home runs, powering the Rangers past the Orioles on Monday.

    Advice: Another big day for the first baseman. He clubbed a solo shot in the second inning off of Bud Norris, then victimized Norris again in the fourth inning for a two-run blast. He finished 2-for-5 on the evening. Moreland has 12 homers on the year with 39 RBI and a .300/.346/.533 batting line in what has been a career year.
    Yesterday, 7:22 pm
  • James Loney (finger) nearing rehab assignment
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that James Loney (finger) could begin a rehab assignment "in the next couple of days."

    Advice: Loney has progressed more quickly than expected in his recovery from a broken left middle finger and could be activated prior to the All-Star break. The first baseman sports a .275/.322/.376 batting line with two homers and 11 RBI in 30 games this season.

  • Brian McCann getting a breather Monday
    Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It's just a day off. John Ryan Murphy is behind the plate while McCann rests.
    Yesterday, 3:37 pm
  • Hosmer (finger) out until at least Thursday
    Eric Hosmer (finger) is not expected to return to the lineup until at least Thursday.

    Advice: Hosmer is nursing a sprain of his left ring finger. He had to be pinch-hit for on Sunday due to the ailment and will not play in the series versus the Astros that runs through Wednesday. The disabled list doesn't appear to be under consideration at this point. Kendrys Morales will handle first base until Hosmer is ready.
    Yesterday, 3:23 pm
  • Eric Hosmer (finger) to be out a few days
    Eric Hosmer (finger) is expected to miss the next few games.

    Advice: Hosmer is dealing with a mild sprain of his left ring finger. He was able to start Sunday's game in the designated hitter spot but had to be removed late for a pinch-hitter. It doesn't sound like the disabled list is under consideration at this point, but it appears we won't see him again until later on in the week.
    Yesterday, 2:02 pm
  • C.J. Cron recalled from Triple-A
    Angels recalled 1B/DH C.J. Cron from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Cron is batting just .204/.237/.269 in his time with the big club this season. He'll see some time versus left-handers.
    Yesterday, 1:26 pm
  • Daniel Nava (thumb) could begin rehab Friday
    Daniel Nava (thumb) took batting practice on the field Saturday at Tropicana Field.

    Advice: He'll do the same in Toronto and if all goes well, he should begin a rehab assignment when the Red Sox return home on Friday. Nava enjoyed a breakout season in 2013 but has hit just .254 in 428 at-bats since with four homers and 44 RBI. It's going to be tough for him to find playing time in Boston's crowded outfield, though he could get a chance at first base if Mike Napoli continues to struggle.

  • Parmelee homers again, O's sweep twin bill
    Chris Parmelee blasted his fourth home run of the season as the Orioles topped the Indians 8-0, sweeping Sunday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Parmelee's two-run blast capped off a six-run uprising in the fourth inning, and was one of three long balls in the frame, joining teammates Chris Davis and Travis Snider. He has provided a nice spark to the Orioles offense since being recalled from Triple-A, slashing .302/.348/.721 with four homers and six RBI. While he won't continue this type of production, fantasy owners should continue to ride the hot hand until he starts to fade.

  • Logan Morrison flies out as pinch-hitter
    Logan Morrison came off the bench Sunday to fly out as a pinch-hitter.

    Advice: Morrison didn't start against the Angels because of a sore back. It seems like he'll still be safe to use this week.
    Sunday, 4:48 pm
  • Frazier slugs 25th home run as the Reds lose
    Todd Frazier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Mets on Sunday.

    Advice: Frazier tied the game up at 2-2 with a solo home run off of Steven Matz. The Reds were otherwise not able to accomplish much offensively. Frazier's career year continues, now sitting on 25 home runs with 53 RBI, eight stolen bases, and a .287/.350/.618 triple-slash line.

  • Lind launches 11th homer in win over Twins
    Adam Lind hit a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Lind hit the two-run shot off Casey Fien in the eighth inning. It was his 11th home run of the season and his only hit in four at-bats on the day. The first baseman, who may be a popular trade chip at the deadline next month, is hitting .291/.362/.494 with 39 RBI on the year.
    Sunday, 2:15 pm
  • 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.
    Sunday, 1:41 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.

    4:10 pm vs ChC
  • Gonzalez provides 3 hits, RBI in a win
    Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI double in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

    Advice: Gonzalez added some insurance in a low-scoring affair, doubling in the seventh inning to make it a 2-0 ballgame. While no one realistically expected him to maintain a 1.000 OPS over the course of the season, his June swoon has caused his OPS to drop 137 points since the beginning of the month. He's still batting a very productive .297/.371/.518 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI.
    Sunday, 1:16 pm
  • Eric Hosmer nursing minor finger injury
    Eric Hosmer is nursing a mild sprain of his left ring finger.

    Advice: It's not keeping him from playing, but he will be used in the designated hitter spot rather than at first base Sunday, flip-flopping with Kendrys Morales. The ailment doesn't seem to affect Hosmer at the plate, so fantasy owners shouldn't have second thoughts about using him.
    Sunday, 11:52 am
  • Tommy Joseph moves from C to 1B
    The Phillies are converting former catcher prospect Tommy Joseph to a first baseman.

    Advice: Joseph was once a nice prospect behind the plate, but he's dealt with numerous concussions and the Phils have finally decided enough is enough. "He’s not going to catch going forward," said director of player development Joe Jordan. "We’re not going to expose him to that type of risk. Tommy is very excited about the move and anxious to get back on the field playing again." Joseph is hitting just .123/.135/.178 this season and it's fair to question whether he has enough bat to profile at first base.

  • Mike Napoli ejected from Sunday's game
    Mike Napoli was ejected from Sunday's game versus the Rays for arguing balls and strikes.

    Advice: Home plate umpire Tripp Gibson looked to have a quick trigger, as Napoli seemed to be disputing a called strike three pretty calmly in the second inning before getting the heave-ho. It's been a nightmarish season for the first baseman, as Napoli sports an ugly .203/.304/.380 batting line.
    Sunday, 10:38 am
  • Logan Morrison sitting out with sore back
    Logan Morrison is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday due to a sore back.

    Advice: He's been battling the back ailment for a bit. Morrison is expected to return to action on Tuesday following Monday's off day. Willie Bloomquist is at first base Sunday while LoMo rests.
    Sunday, 10:14 am
  • Pedro Alvarez not in Sunday's lineup
    Pedro Alvarez is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's on the bench versus lefty Alex Wood. Sean Rodriguez is handling first base in Alvarez's place.
    Sunday, 9:59 am
  • Wil Myers (wrist) gets cast removed Saturday
    Wil Myers (wrist) had his cast removed on Saturday.

    Advice: He's 4-to-6 weeks away from resuming baseball activities, which actually puts him about two weeks ahead of schedule. Myers said he lost some muscle in his left forearm while he had his cast on. He'll focus on strength and mobility exercises as he works his way back into playing shape. The 24-year-old should be ready for a rehab assignment in early to mid-August.

  • McCann hits grand slam, Yankees top Astros
    Brian McCann went 2-for-4 with a grand slam as the Yankees outlasted the Astros 9-6 on Saturday.

    Advice: McCann took Astros starter Brett Oberholtzer deep for the salami in the first inning. The homer was McCann's 12th of the year and his third in the last five games. His good afternoon has his line up to .274/.341/.489 with 49 RBI. That's good for fifth-most RBI in the American League.
    Saturday, 5:20 pm
  • Deuces are wild for Carter in loss to Yankees
    Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

    Advice: Carter connected off Masahiro Tanaka for a solo homer in the fourth inning. He also added an RBI double and scored a run in the second inning. Carter is up to 13 home runs and 37 RBI after a slow start to the year.
    Saturday, 5:14 pm
  • Morales knocks in two runs as Royals edge A's
    Kendrys Morales went 2-for-3 with two RBI to help the Royals edge the Athletics 3-2 on Saturday.

    Advice: Morales' two-run single in the sixth inning was the difference in the game. He's got a 10-game hitting streak that has his line up to .292/.353/.469. His 48 RBI are good for sixth-most in the American League.
    Saturday, 4:15 pm
  • Hosmer records two hits, steal against A's
    Eric Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored against the A's on Saturday.

    Advice: The multi-hit game was his fifth in his last nine contests. Hosmer now has four steals to go with a .294/.358/.450 line, 40 RBI and 40 runs scored.
    Saturday, 4:10 pm
  • Jose Abreu batting second for White Sox
    Jose Abreu is batting second for the White Sox in Saturday's game against the Tigers.

    Advice: There's no real downside to moving Abreu up in the order, and there's a chance that it could wind up in him getting an extra at-bat in the ballgame, though his RBI chances could take a small hit. The 28-year-old slugger is hitting .290/.341/.493 with 13 homers and 41 RBI on the season.
    Saturday, 10:00 am
  • James Loney (finger) ahead of schedule
    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Saturday that James Loney (finger) is ahead of schedule in his recovery and should return to the Rays before the All-Star break.

    Advice: Loney has been on the shelf since May 25 with a broken left middle finger and was expected to be sidelined until after the Mid-Summer classic. Before hitting the disabled list, he was hitting .275/.322/.376 with two homers and 11 RBI in 30 games.

  • Stephen Vogt (wrist) in A's lineup Saturday
    Stephen Vogt (wrist) is in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Vogt was expected to get the day off after he left Friday's game with a bruised wrist after he was hit by a pitch. He was able to avoid any serious injuries though and apparently feels good enough to give it a go on Saturday. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing .304/.399/.545 with 13 homers and a league-leading 53 RBI.

  • Ryan Howard not in Phillies lineup Saturday
    Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a day of rest against tough southpaw Gio Gonzalez. Maikel Franco is getting the start at first base while Andres Blanco covers the hot corner. Look for Howard to return on Sunday.
    Saturday, 9:26 am
  • Billy Butler goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Billy Butler went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Royals and is hitting .197 with one homer and six RBI in 66 at-bats during June.

    Advice: If Butler were on a one-year deal instead of a three-year pact, he'd be a real candidate for a benching. As is, the A's will likely stick with him and hope for the best. He's been a liability thus far.
    Friday, 10:38 pm
  • Stephen Vogt listed as day-to-day
    X-rays on Stephen Vogt's wrist came back negative, and he's day-to-day after being hit by a pitch in Friday's game.

    Advice: Vogt will probably need Saturday off, but it looks like he escaped serious injury.

  • Stephen Vogt exits game after HBP
    Stephen Vogt left Friday's game in the ninth inning after getting hit on the right hand/wrist by a pitch.

    Advice: Vogt was in quite a lot of pain, so this could be a DL-type situation. Josh Phegley would catch regularly if that's the case.

  • 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.

  • Todd Frazier slugs 24th homer
    Todd Frazier went 3-for-6 and hit his 24th homer versus the Pirates on Thursday.

    Advice: 24 homers. That's five more than he hit in 150 games in 2013. He did step it up to 29 last year, but it looks like he'll blow right past that this season. He's hit .306 with eight homers and 10 doubles in June.

  • Moreland's big day not enough for the Rangers
    Mitch Moreland went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a solo home run, but it wasn't enough as the Rangers fell to the Athletics on Thursday.

    Advice: Moreland got the scoring started in the fourth inning with a solo home run off of Sonny Gray. He added an RBI single in the fifth to break a 2-2 tie. Though he had been slumping over his last eight games coming into Thursday's action, Moreland is having the best season of his career, batting .302/.352/.510 with nine home runs and 35 RBI.
    Thursday, 2:43 pm
  • Vogt logs another three-hit game as A's win
    Stephen Vogt went 3-for-5 and scored a run in Thursday's win against the Rangers.

    Advice: Vogt has logged three hits in three of his last four games. Not coincidentally, the Athletics have won all four games. Barring a tremendous slump or an injury, the 30-year-old should wind up on the AL All-Star roster as he's batting a healthy .308/.401/.552 with 13 home runs, 53 RBI (leading the league), and 37 runs scored.

    Brian McCann is out of the Yankees' lineup again Thursday against the Astros.

    Thursday, 1:51 pm
  • Carter not in Thursday's lineup
    Chris Carter is not in Thursday's lineup against the Yankees.

    Advice: Carter will take a seat against Adam Warren. Marwin Gonzalez gets the start at first base.
    Thursday, 1:45 pm
  • 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).
    Wednesday, 10:25 pm
  • Stephen Vogt goes 3-for-5 against Rangers
    Stephen Vogt, who missed Tuesday's game with a sore elbow, went 3-for-5 with two RBI against the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Vogt played first base while Josh Phegley, who went 2-for-4 with a homer and a walk, did the catching. Vogt is expected back behind the plate tomorrow, though as well as Phegley is hitting, it'd made sense to let Vogt DH or play first base more frequently. Billy Butler can take a spot on the bench if he doesn't step it up.

  • Moreland leaves game with undisclosed injury
    Mitch Moreland left Wednesday's game with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: It's hard to discern whether he was actually injured or whether, down 8-2, the Rangers just decided to get him out of the game, but earlier Wednesday he told reporters he was dealing with "general soreness." Moreland has struggled to stay healthy over the course of his career, but, at least right now, it doesn't seem like the kind of thing that should keep him sidelined too long. More should be known about the nature of the injury after the game.
    Wednesday, 7:14 pm
  • 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.

  • Abreu has four-hit night in win over Twins
    Jose Abreu finished 4-for-5 with two runs scored as the White Sox bested the Twins 6-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Abreu ended the evening with three singles and a double as the White Sox banged out 15 hits in total. That he didn't drive any runners in was a surprise, but the first baseman scored runs in the seventh and ninth innings to help the cause. The strong performance extended his hitting streak to eight games and gave him a nice round .300/.350/.500 line with 12 homers, 40 RBI and 39 runs scored on the year.
    Tuesday, 8:29 pm

    Advice: Vogt got a cortisone shot in his ailing left elbow on Sunday and will be held out of action Tuesday night against the Rangers. He's dealt with a variety of injuries this season, but they've all been pretty minor. The 30-year-old catcher has a .938 OPS, 13 home runs, and 51 RBI in 68 games this season for the Athletics.

  • Mike Napoli dropped to eighth in lineup
    Mike Napoli was dropped to eighth in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

    Advice: This will be his first time batting eighth as a member of the Red Sox, though it's worth noting he has a lot of history in that spot in his career. However, this is all about his lack of production. He's hitting .179 with one home run and .515 OPS over his last 16 games.
    Tuesday, 12:22 pm
  • McCann drills 11th homer in loss to Phillies
    Brian McCann clubbed his 11th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Phillies on Monday.

    Advice: McCann finished 1-for-3 with a walk on the night. He homered in the seventh inning off of Elvis Araujo, reducing the Yankees' deficit to 10-6. He had lifted a sacrifice fly in the first inning as well. McCann has gone yard in back-to-back games and is now batting .275/.340/.488 with 45 RBI.

    Advice: Frazier gave the Reds a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning when he ripped a two-run home run to right-center off of David Phelps. He finished 1-for-4. Thus continues the season of one of baseball's best fantasy performers to date. Frazier has 23 home runs, 48 RBI, eight stolen bases, and a .292/.356/.636 triple-slash line.

  • Morales homers to help down Red Sox
    Kendrys Morales went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Morales' two-run bomb off Rick Porcello in the fifth inning capped off a five-run frame for the home team. It's been a fantastically consistent season to this point for the DH, who is currently slashing .286/.345/.462 with eight homers and 45 RBI.

    Advice: The hard-hitting backstop gets a routine day of rest with an afternoon game after a night game. Martin Maldonado will start behind the dish for the Brewers and bat eighth against Chad Bettis and the Rockies.

  • Hosmer homers in loss to Red Sox
    Eric Hosmer was 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: It was his eighth home run of the season and his first since way back on May 14. This has been a quiet month for the AL's leading vote-getter at first base, but he still has a solid .300/.368/.475 batting line on the season.
