    Ryan Zimmerman is not in the lineup for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Zimmerman went 0-for-3 with an RBI in the early game, a 2-0 win for Washington. He will be available off the bench as the Nationals try to sweep the twin-billing. Rotoworld.com

  • Joey Gallo batting sixth in MLB debut Tuesday
    Joey Gallo is batting sixth in his major league debut Tuesday night against the White Sox.

    Advice: That seems like a pretty appropriate spot in the Rangers' lineup for the 21-year-old slugger. Gallo was called up from Double-A Frisco on Tuesday morning to handle third base while Adrian Beltre (thumb) is on the shelf and he's worth a shot in most mixed fantasy leagues for his incredible raw power.

  • Kris Bryant starting in left field Tuesday
    Kris Bryant will make his first career start in left field Tuesday.

    Advice: Bryant made one start in center field earlier this season and has played three innings in left field, but this will be his first career start there. It's likely just a temporary thing, as Jorge Soler is out of Tuesday's lineup with a sore ankle. Junior Lake is filling in for Soler in right field. Meanwhile, Jonathan Herrera will play third.

  • Escobar has two more hits Tuesday
    Yunel Escobar went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Escobar hit leadoff Tuesday with Denard Span (knee) sidelined. We keep waiting for the 32-year-old to come back down to Earth, but he's showing no signs of slowing down yet. With a .319/.378/.396 batting line over 47 games, he's been a nice surprise for Washington. Rotoworld.com

    Brewers designated INF Elian Herrera for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Hernan Perez. Herrera, 30, was batting .212 with four home runs and .633 OPS over 38 games this season and wasn't going to be a long-term piece for Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com

  • Sano hits 10th home run
    Twins prospect 3B Miguel Sano went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run on Monday for Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Sano now has 10 homers on the year after a slow start, and his slash line sits at a much improved .250/.354/.506 through 45 games. The 22-year-old has swung a hot bat of late, with a .317 batting average, two home runs and 13 RBI in his last 10 contests. Sano’s strikeout (24.6%) and walk (13.3%) rates this season are close to his career averages, which is nice to see after he missed all of 2014. However, the reality that the Twins have no reason to rush the young slugger makes it difficult to envision him getting a shot in the major leagues this season unless there’s an injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers promote prospect 3B Joey Gallo
    Rangers purchased the contract of 3B Joey Gallo from Double-A Frisco.

    Advice: Rangers general manager Jon Daniels made the surprising announcement Monday, with Adrian Beltre (thumb) expected to miss the next 2-3 weeks. The 21-year-old Gallo was batting .314/.425/.636 with nine home runs and 31 RBI over 34 games this season in Double-A and possesses immense raw power, but strikeouts have been an issue for him in the minors and he's no sure thing have immediate success. He makes for a fine flier in most fantasy leagues based on upside alone, but the expectation is that he'll be sent right back down to the minors when Beltre is ready to return. It should be a fun sneak preview at the very least. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers place Beltre (thumb) on 15-day DL
    Rangers placed 3B Adrian Beltre on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 1, with a sprained left thumb.

    Alex Rodriguez extended his hitting streak to 11 games, going 1-for-3 with a walk as the Yankees topped the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Rodriguez singled in the fifth inning to keep the streak alive, and came around to score on Mark Teixeira's grand slam. His next home run will be the 666th of his career. He's hitting .282/.372/.541 with 11 home runs and 27 RBI so far this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Murphy's 4 hits, 3 RBI contribute to Mets win
    Daniel Murphy went 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI single, and a two-run home run in Monday's victory versus the Padres.

    Advice: Murphy started the scoring early with an RBI single in the first inning. He added a two-run home run in the fifth, starting a four-run rally. Murphy has been up-and-down offensively this year, but is currently hitting .286/.337/.418 with four home runs and 29 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Arenado homers again, but Rockies fall to LAD

    Advice: Arenado has now homered six times in his last eight games, giving him 13 on the season with 37 RBI and a .289/.330/.578. One could say he's seeing the ball well right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Valbuena homers as Astros down the Orioles
    Luis Valbuena went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Orioles.

    Advice: Valbuena tied the game up in the fifth inning with a solo home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez. He also scored the go-ahead run in a four-run seventh inning. 10 of Valbuena's 11 home runs this season have been of the solo variety. Along with 19 RBI, he's hitting .196/.260/.413. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryant contributes to Cubs' win with RBI 2B
    Kris Bryant went 1-for-4 with a walk and an RBI double as the Cubs beat the Marlins by a 5-1 score on Monday.

    Advice: Bryant walked and scored in the first inning, then knocked in the Cubs' fourth run with a double in the seventh. The rookie continues to perform at the plate, now batting .280/.396/.480 with seven home runs, 33 RBI, and five stolen bases. His 33 RBI, by the way, is best on the Cubs. Rotoworld.com

  • Beltre (thumb) expected to miss 2-3 weeks
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said in a radio interview Monday that he expects Adrian Beltre (thumb) to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

    Advice: Beltre suffered a lacerated and dislocated left thumb when he attempted to break up a double play during Sunday's game. He won't swing a bat for over a week but it sounds like the Rangers are optimistic that it will be a relatively short-term absence. Beltre will officially be placed on the disabled list Tuesday and be replaced on the roster by Joey Gallo. Rotoworld.com

  • Rangers to promote top prospect Joey Gallo
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said in a radio interview Monday that the club will call up third base prospect Joey Gallo on Tuesday.

    Advice: Adrian Beltre is set to miss the next 2-3 weeks with a dislocated left thumb and the Rangers have decided to promote their top prospect to fill the void. Daniels stressed that he expects Gallo to return to the minors once Beltre returns. But, of course, if the slugger tears it up they could always change their minds and find another spot for him. Gallo is batting .314/.425/.636 with nine homers and 31 RBI for Double-A Frisco this season. He's worth an add in all formats, though it's certainly possible he's not ready to handle major league pitching yet. Rotoworld.com

  • Jimmy Paredes getting a breather Monday
    Jimmy Paredes is not in the Orioles' lineup Monday.

  • Marlins not looking to trade INF Martin Prado
    According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins are not looking to trade Martin Prado.

    Advice: There are multiple contending teams in need of infield help, but Frisaro notes that Prado is under contract through 2016 and the Marlins intend to compete next year even if they can't claw their way back this year. Also, the Yankees are covering $3 million of his $11 million salary. He's a relatively inexpensive glue guy for a clubhouse that needs glue guys. Rotoworld.com

  • Middlebrooks swats seventh homer in victory
    Will Middlebrooks swatted his seventh home run of the season as the Padres cruised past the Pirates 7-1 on Sunday.

    Advice: His towering two-run drive to left field came off Pirates starter Jeff Locke in the third inning, increasing the Padres lead to 5-0. He would later add a sacrifice fly, finishing the evening 1-for-4 with three RBI. While he isn't hitting for a strong average or getting on base much (.238/.271/.419), he has provided punch from the bottom of the lineup with seven homers and 21 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Beltre (thumb) won't swing bat for 12 days
    Adrian Beltre (thumb) will not swing a bat for at least the next 12 days.

  • Rodriguez singles twice in loss to Athletics
    Alex Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's loss to the A's.

    Advice: Nobody on the Yankees was doing much of anything offensively against Jesse Chavez. The only non-Rodriguez Yankee to record more than one hit in the game was Didi Gregorious. With the two singles, A-Rod is now hitting .281/.369/.545 with 11 homers and 27 RBI. He's playing about as well as a 39-year-old who just took a year off can play. Rotoworld.com

  • Beltre (thumb) to miss at least two weeks
    Adrian Beltre will miss at least the next two weeks after spraining his left thumb in Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Beltre also sustained a laceration in his thumb that required four stitches. It's unclear how to Rangers plan to absorb his absence at third base, but Adam Rosales replaced him on Sunday and could wind up being the primary beneficiary. Rotoworld.com

  • Villar doubles, triples, commits error vs CWS
    Jonathan Villar went 2-for-3 with a double and a triple in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Villar was all over the place in this one, for better and worse. He doubled and tripled against John Danks while also committing an error in the field. He's seeing playing time with Jed Lowrie (thumb) on the shelf. In 263 at-bats last season, Villar hit .209/.267/.354 with 17 steals. There's value to be had here in deeper leagues, especially for those in need of a little speed. Rotoworld.com

  • Adrian Beltre leaves after jamming thumb
    Adrian Beltre was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Red Sox after jamming his thumb while attempting to break up a double play at second base.

    Advice: He is still being evaluated by the team to determine the extent and severity of the injury. Adam Rosales took his place at third base and would likely see increased action should Beltre be forced to miss a few games. Rotoworld.com

  • Franco held hitless again, Phils get swept
    Maikel Franco was held hitless again, going 0-for-3 with a walk as the Rockies completed a series sweep of the Phillies with a 4-1 win on Sunday.

    Advice: Franco went 0-for-11 in the series and has registered only two hits -- both singles -- in 28 plate appearances since May 24. The Phillies' talented third base prospect is hitting .194/.242/.339 with two home runs and eight RBI in 66 plate appearances thus far. Rotoworld.com

  • Frazier rips 16th homer as Reds sweep Nats
    Todd Frazier went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a solo home run as the Reds completed a sweep of the Nationals on Sunday.

    Advice: Frazier broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning with a solo home run off of Tanner Roark. He now has 16 on the year, good for third-best in baseball behind Bryce Harper and Nelson Cruz with 18. Frazier set a career-best last season with 29 home runs. He seems well on his way to exceeding that. Along with the 16 round-trippers, he has 31 RBI, six stolen bases, and a .287/.372/.624 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Castellanos not in Tigers lineup Sunday
    Nick Castellanos is not in the Tigers starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Angels.

    Advice: The slumping third baseman will take a seat in favor of Andrew Romine who will bat ninth against opposing right-hander Matt Shoemaker. The 23-year-old is hitting just .230/.276/.366 with four homers and 21 RBI on the year, and could probably benefit from getting a day off. Rotoworld.com

    Will Middlebrooks went 2-for-4 with a double, home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 5-4 win against the Angels.

    Advice: Middlebrooks' two-run round-tripper off Garrett Richards in the fourth inning gave the Padres a 3-2 lead in an eventual 5-4 triumph. He continues to be a frustrating asset in NL-only leagues, though the third baseman has performed better of late. Middlebrooks has exactly two hits in five of his last eight games.

    X-rays on Carlos Santana's left wrist came back negative.

    Advice: Santana was hit on the wrist by a pitch in the ninth inning of Tuesday's game. He stayed in the contest and should be fine, but the Indians will check on him Wednesday to see how sore he is. With a day game, there's a good chance Santana could be rested. Rotoworld.com

  • Prado drives in lone run in 13-inning win
    Martin Prado's RBI single with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 13th inning made 1-0 winners out of the Marlins in Saturday's contest against the Orioles.

    Advice: Had Prado not singled, it's possible that this game simply would have sunk into a tear in the fabric of space-time, never to end. Prado made sure the universe remained intact. After Giancarlo Stanton drew an intentional walk to load the bases, Prado stepped up against T.J. McFarland and singled to end the game before any position players had to pitch. The hit extended Prado's hitting streak to six games and he's now slashing .273/.310/.341. Rotoworld.com
