  • Orioles designate Parmelee for assignment
    Orioles designated INF/OF Chris Parmelee for assignment.

    Advice: He was sent out to create a spot on the active roster for the newly-acquired Gerardo Parra. The 27-year-old blasted three home runs in his first two games with the Orioles, but hit just .182/.217/.318 with one homer, six RBI and a 26/3 K/BB ratio in 30 games since.

  • Coco Crisp to remain on rehab through weekend

    Advice: He is scheduled to play in games on Friday and Saturday before being re-evaluated by the Athletics medical staff on Sunday. If all goes well, there's a chance that he could rejoin the A's lineup on Monday. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:03 pm

  • Corey Dickerson undergoes MRI on sore ribs
    Corey Dickerson underwent an MRI exam on his sore ribs on Friday.

    Advice: The results of that exam are not yet known. He was removed from Thursday's contest against the Cardinals with a right rib contusion sustained from diving for a line drive in the outfield. More should be known on his status later Friday. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:02 pm
  • Dodgers get Jose Tabata from Pirates
    Dodgers acquired OF Jose Tabata from the Pirates in exchange for 1B/OF Michael Morse.

    Advice: Tabata has been removed from the Pirates' 40-man roster a couple times, as it was clear he was no longer in their plans. He's owed $4.5 million next season and has $750,000 worth of buyouts from 2017-19. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:50 pm

  • Orioles picks up Junior Lake from Cubs
    Orioles acquired OF Junior Lake from the Cubs in exchange for RHP Tommy Hunter.

    Advice: Lake has shown power in spurts with the Cubs but is a career .241/.283/.380 hitter over parts of three seasons. He doesn't ever figure to have a big role in Baltimore. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:48 pm

  • Corey Dickerson (rib) not in lineup
    Corey Dickerson (rib) is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Dickerson left Thursday's game with a right rib contusion. He's day-to-day. Brandon Barnes is in left field Friday in his place. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:17 pm
  • Efren Navarro optioned to Triple-A
    Angels optioned OF Efren Navarro to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: He already had been designated for assignment but now needs to be optioned because of service time rules. Navarro, 29, is a .248/.306/.328 career hitter at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:01 pm

  • Mets announce trade for Yoenis Cespedes
    Mets acquired OF Yoenis Cespedes from the Tigers in exchange for RHPs Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa.

    Advice: The Mets whiffed on Carlos Gomez and Jay Bruce but found the bat they were looking for in Cespedes. He'll patrol left field in New York and should provide a much-needed jolt to the Mets' lineup. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:35 pm
  • Indians pick up Abraham Almonte from Padres
    Indians acquired OF Abraham Almonte from the Padres in exchange for LHP Marc Rzepczynski; optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Almonte has hit only .204/.271/.259 in the majors this season. He's simply a depth guy. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:59 pm

  • Ben Revere will hit at bottom of order
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that Ben Revere will bat at the bottom of the batting order and platoon in left field.

    Advice: He'll be on the strong side of a platoon, but hitting ninth instead of leadoff obviously hurts Revere's run-scoring potential. He'll still have plenty of fantasy value going from Philadelphia to Toronto, though. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:42 pm
  • Pirates acquire Michael Morse for Jose Tabata
    Pirates acquired 1B/OF Michael Morse from the Dodgers in exchange for OF Jose Tabata.

    Advice: Morse was designated for assignment after the Dodgers picked him up in the three-team deal with the Marlins and Braves. He's hit only .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season but offers the Pirates an option at first base against left-handed pitching. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:23 pm
  • Blue Jays bring in Ben Revere from Phillies
    Blue Jays acquired OF Ben Revere from the Phillies for RHP Alberto Tirado and RHP Jimmy Cordero.

    Advice: The Jays got a nice complimentary piece for their outfield. Revere shouldn't start over Kevin Pillar in center, but he can fill in there on occasion. He'll probably end up platooning with Chris Colabello in left field, giving the Jays more defense there at the cost of power. His fantasy value would seem to drop some, since he could hit low in the order and play less than he might have elsewhere. Still, he remains worth using in mixed leagues. The Phillies have freed up more at-bats for Domonic Brown and Cody Asche as they try to figure out their 2016 outfield. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:00 pm
  • Mets trade for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes
    Bruce Levine of 670thescore.com reports that the Mets have acquired Yoenis Cespedes from the Tigers.

    Advice: The Tigers will receive pitching prospects Michael Fulmer and Luis Cessa in return, but the Mets didn't blink in refusing to offer Zack Wheeler. Detroit pretty much had to deal Cespedes, as they're in seller mode and can't make him a qualifying offer after the season. He'll provide some much-needed thump to the Mets' lineup. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:52 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez (shin) not in lineup Friday
    Hanley Ramirez (shin) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Ramirez injured his shin during Thursday's game. He's considered day-to-day. Alejandro De Aza is in left field Friday. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:23 pm
  • 'Nothing happening' on Upton trade front
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that there's "nothing happening" on the Justin Upton trade front and "it appears he's staying put at deadline."

    Advice: Things can always change, of course, but there has been surprisingly little trade rumors of late involving the outfielder. The Padres appear content to pick up a draft pick for Upton this winter rather than deal him for a trade package they deem unsatisfactory. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:19 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez won't be traded this month
    ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Rockies have told teams they will revisit trading Carlos Gonzalez next month or over the winter.

    Advice: They evidently haven't been able to find a robust enough market for CarGo this month. Gonzalez is one of the hottest hitters in baseball with a .431/.481/.958 batting line and 11 homers over his last 18 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:29 am
  • Mets 'making push' for Yoenis Cespedes
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are "making a push" for Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: The Mets had a deal in place for Carlos Gomez and were close on Jay Bruce, only to see both potential trades fall apart. It appears they've moved their focus to Cespedes as they seek some offensive help. It's unclear at this point what the Mets would have to give up. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:20 am
  • Angels have discussed Cespedes with Tigers
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Angels have talked with the Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: The Angels have already traded for three different outfielder/designated hitter types, but Cespedes would be a much bigger bat than all of them. It's unclear how serious the discussions are at this point. The Mets have also been linked to Cespedes. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:11 am
  • Blue Jays pick up Ben Revere from Phillies
    MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports that the Blue Jays have acquired Ben Revere from the Phillies.

    Advice: It's unclear at this point what the Blue Jays are giving up in return. Revere will take over in left field for Toronto and possibly slide into the leadoff spot. He could score a ton of runs in front of that dynamic offense. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:06 am
  • Mets talking to Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are talking to the Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: Talks with the Reds about Jay Bruce appear to be losing steam, so the Mets are looking at other outfielders. Rosenthal notes that Cespedes is "one of their many options," as they've also been connected to Will Venable and Rajai Davis. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says that the Nationals "could be a possibility" for Cespedes. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:14 am
  • Orioles acquire Gerardo Parra from Brewers
    Orioles acquired OF Gerardo Parra from the Brewers for RHP Zach Davies.

    Advice: Two months later, the Orioles have replaced Alejandro De Aza with another Alejandro De Aza, but one who happens to be in the midst of a career season. Or, at least, a career three months so far. Parra was hitting .328/.369/.517 for Milwaukee, a huge improvement over his .265/.316/.387 lines from the previous two seasons. He's never played in the AL before, so he's facing a transition, and most likely, he'll begin to revert to something closer to his career numbers. That still probably makes him the Orioles' best option in left field against right-handers. He's just not really likely to be a difference maker. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:55 am
  • Phillies land OF Williams in Hamels trade
    Outfielder Nick Williams was traded from the Rangers to the Phillies in the Cole Hamels trade.

    Advice: This isn't the first year that Williams has put up numbers, but it's the first time he's done so while showing a modicum of plate discipline. He's gone from posting a 110/15 K/BB ratio in 95 games in 2013 and a 140/22 K/BB ratio in 112 games last year to coming in at 77/32 through 97 games this year. He's also hitting .299/.357/.479 with 13 homers and 10 steals in Double-A. If he keeps improving, he could take over as the Phillies' left fielder next summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:13 am

  • '50/50' chance Orioles trade for Ben Revere
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal was told by one source that there's a "50/50" chance the Orioles trade for Ben Revere.

    Advice: The O's have already added Gerardo Parra, but they're still seeking some outfield help. Revere has also been connected with the Blue Jays, but it sounds like their interest has died down a bit. He's under team control through 2017. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am
  • Blue Jays 'aren't interested' in Ben Revere
    ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Blue Jays "aren't interested" in Ben Revere at the current asking price.

    Advice: This comes after multiple reports had talks between the Jays and Phillies about the outfielder progressing, but obviously significant ground needs to be made up. Olney says the Phils "are talking to some other team." It's unclear which club that is, but the Orioles reportedly still have some interest even after acquiring Gerardo Parra. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:48 am
  • Blue Jays' talks for Ben Revere 'heating up'
    Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that the Blue Jays' trade talks with the Phillies involving Ben Revere are "heating up."

    Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has confirmed that the Jays are in on Revere. It's unclear what the Phillies might receive in return, but Toronto makes sense for a landing spot for Revere since they're looking for left field help. The speedy outfielder could also be an option to hit leadoff. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:00 am
  • BAL 'closing in' on trade for Gerardo Parra
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are "closing in" on a trade for Gerardo Parra in exchange for pitching prospect Zach Davies.

    Advice: CBS Sport' Jon Heyman says the deal is done, pending physicals. Parra has turned into a nice trade chip for Milwaukee by batting .328/.369/.517 with nine homers and nine stolen bases this season. The O's are also after Ben Revere as they look to remake their corner outfield spots. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:30 am
  • O's are 'best bet' to acquire Gerardo Parra
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman believes that the Orioles are the "best bet" to acquire Gerardo Parra from the Brewers.

    Advice: It's been reported that they're also after Ben Revere, as they could use help at both corner outfield spots. Parra entered the season as a highly paid fourth outfielder but has turned into a nice trade chip for the Brewers by batting .328/.369/.517 with nine homers and nine stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:28 am
  • Orioles trying to acquire Revere and Parra
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are trying to acquire both Ben Revere and Gerardo Parra.

    Advice: Picking up two corner outfielders would allow them to move Chris Davis back to first base. Revere is making $4.1 million this season and is under team control through 2017, while Parra will be a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:43 am
  • Eddie Rosario homers, triples, doubles
    Eddie Rosario missed the cycle by a single, knocked in three runs and scored three runs Thursday as the Twins beat the Mariners 9-5.

    Advice: Rosario was hitting .272/.296/.396 a week ago. Eight extra-base hits in five games have changed that in a hurry, pushing him up to .294/.316/.462. One would think his lack of plate discipline will catch up to him at some point, but even if that happens, his defense in left field will help him stay in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Josh Hamilton homers, knocks in four in win
    Josh Hamilton went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI as the Rangers edged the Yankees 7-6 on Thursday.

    Advice: Hamilton singled in Leonys Martin to win it against Andrew Miller in the bottom of the ninth. He's now hitting .258 with four homers and 14 RBI in 27 games in his return to Texas. That's nothing special, but it's certainly better than what the team was getting from his spot prior to his reacquisition. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Ryan Rua hits inside-the-park homer
    Ryan Rua went 2-for-3 with an inside-the-park homer Thursday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Rua has hit in five straight starts while seeing time against lefties of late. Ideally, he'd almost never start against righties, but with Josh Hamilton, Shin-Soo Choo and Mitch Moreland all being counted on, there should always be room him for somewhere versus southpaws.

  • Yoenis Cespedes goes 3-for-5, homers
    In probably his final game with the Tigers, Yoenis Cespedes went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI as Detroit prevailed 9-8 against Baltimore on Thursday.

    Advice: The Tigers moved David Price and Joakim Soria, so there's no reason to stop now. Since Cespedes won't even bring back a pick this winter, he's almost certainly a goner. And he'll probably have less fantasy value wherever he ends up. Cespedes is batting .293 with 18 homers, 62 runs scored and 61 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:35 pm
  • Domonic Brown goes 2-for-4, homers
    Domonic Brown went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Thursday as the Phillies topped the Braves 4-1.

    Advice: With Ben Revere likely exiting, the door is open for Brown to get fairly regular playing time the rest of the way, should he show anything to justify it. He has gone 12-for-28 with three extra-base hits since July 20. It's something to build on. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:48 pm
  • Orioles emerge as suitor for Gerardo Parra
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Orioles have emerged as a strong possibility to acquire Gerardo Parra from the Brewers.

    Advice: The Orioles continue to believe that they are in the thick of the race for one of the Wild Cards in the American League, and Parra would certainly be an upgrade both offensively and defensively. As the O's don't have the necessary prospects to land any of the top outfielders on the market, Parra seems like a tremendous fit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:23 pm
  • Dickerson leaves game with rib contusion
    Corey Dickerson was forced to exit Thursday's game against the Cardinals with a right rib contusion.

    Advice: Dickerson sustained the injury while diving for a line drive off the bat of Jason Heyward. He's considered day-to-day and should return to the Rockies lineup at some point over the weekend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:48 pm
  • Brewers recall Logan Schafer from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled OF Logan Schafer from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Schafer will join the team on Friday. He'll help provide depth in the outfield for the Brewers after dealing Carlos Gomez to the Astros on Thursday. Schafer is hitting just .182/.270/.276 in 33 at-bats with the big league club this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:03 pm
  • Dodgers designate Chris Heisey for assignment
    Dodgers designated OF Chris Heisey for assignment.

    Advice: Like Brandon Beachy, Heisey became a roster casualty due to the massive three-team trade with the Marlins and Braves. While the 30-year-old outfielder struggled in his limited action with the big league club this year, he should attract interest on waivers and could be flipped elsewhere.

  • Dodgers designate Morse for assignment
    Dodgers designated 1B Michael Morse for assignment.

    Advice: Morse was acquired on Thursday as part of the massive 13-player, three-team trade with the Marlins and Braves, but it's clear that he was just a salary dump. The 33-year-old is unlikely to attract much interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:34 pm
  • Upton hits homer in bizarre circumstances
    Justin Upton cracked a go-ahead three-run home run in the ninth inning of Thursday afternoon's 8-7 win over the Mets.

    Advice: This will go down as one of the stranger games of the season. The Mets held a 7-1 lead after six innings. This advantage was dropped to two runs after Derek Norris hit a grand slam in the seventh inning. And then the ninth inning happened. Mets closer Jeurys Familia recorded the first two outs of the inning easily enough, at which point, a string of storms hit and delayed the game for 44 minutes. You can probably guess what happened next. Familia returned to the game after the long delay, allowed two singles, then served up a three-run homer to Upton to give the Padres an 8-7 lead. This would hold as the final score, though not before another delay of over an hour. The baseball deities must have really wanted to enjoy this epic collapse. Upton's name has been swirling in trade rumors for weeks, but he's still with the Padres and it's not a given that he'll be moved. He's struggled over the last two months, but has now homered twice and driven in six in his last two games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:45 pm
  • Report: Orioles interested in Yoenis Cespedes
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Orioles are interested in Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: The Orioles are just one game back for a Wild Card spot and could really use a bat, but they might not have enough in their farm system to outbid other contenders. They also might not be willing to give a top prospect for a rental. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:26 pm
  • Report: White Sox in on Upton, Cespedes
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the White Sox are interested in Padres outfielder Justin Upton and Tigers outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: Such a scenario would have been unthinkable just a couple of weeks ago, but the White Sox have played much better of late and currently sit just 2 1/2 games back for a Wild Card spot. Both Upton and Cespedes would merely be rentals, but either could make a huge difference in the lineup for the suddenly-surging South Siders. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:11 pm
  • Yankees acquire Dustin Ackley from Mariners
    Yankees acquired OF/INF Dustin Ackley from the Mariners for OF Ramon Flores and RHP Jose Ramirez.

    Advice: The Mariners selected Ackley with the No. 2 overall pick in 2009, but things never quite came together for him in Seattle, as he produced a disappointing .243/.306/.366 batting line over 584 games. The Yankees will have to hope that the change of scenery will make a difference for him. He could be a possibility to get some looks at second base over Stephen Drew. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:57 pm
  • Dodgers acquire Michael Morse from Marlins
    Dodgers acquired 1B Michael Morse from the Marlins in the 13-player, three-team Mat Latos trade.

    Advice: Morse doesn't fit all that well on the Dodgers' current roster and it seems possible that they might turn around and designate him for assignment to clear room for some of the other players they acquired in this massive swap. Morse, 33, was batting just .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season for Miami. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:34 pm
  • Report: Yankees to acquire Dustin Ackley
    Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees are set to acquire Dustin Ackley from the Mariners.

    Advice: Ramon Flores and Jose Ramirez will be going back to Seattle. Ackley, 27, is batting just .215/.270/.366 with six home runs and 19 RBI over 207 plate appearances this season. While he's another option for second base, he has mostly played in the outfield in 2015. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm
  • Ichiro walks once in loss to Nationals
    Ichiro Suzuki went 0-for-3 with a walk in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Ichiro--and the Marlins in general--couldn't do much of anything against Nationals starter Max Scherzer on Thursday. The 0-for-3 dropped the veteran outfielder's season-slash to an unimpressive .246/.300/.289. He's amassed just five extra-base hits to this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:13 pm
  • Phillies' next trade could involve Ben Revere
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies' next trade could involve Ben Revere.

    Advice: Rosenthal says at least one American League club has expressed interest in the 27-year-old speedster, who entered play Thursday with a .298/.335/.376 slash line and 24 stolen bases in 95 games. Revere, who's under contractual control through 2017, would be a nice bench addition for any contending team. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 am
  • Brandon Moss officially traded to Cardinals
    Cardinals acquired 1B/OF Brandon Moss from the Indians for LHP Rob Kaminsky.

    Advice: Moss has struggled to produce consistent numbers offensively since developing a hip injury last summer and there hasn't been much indication that he's going to turn it around. The 31-year-old does have some pop and he does fit the Cardinals' need for a corner outfield and first base type with Matt Holliday (quad) back on the shelf, but Kaminsky is no small price. Moss, who's under contractual control through 2016, will likely split time between first base and left field in St. Louis. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:49 am

  • Cardinals acquire Brandon Moss for Kaminsky
    Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have acquired Brandon Moss from the Indians for pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky.

    Advice: Moss fits the Cardinals' need for both a first baseman and corner outfielder, but it comes at a steep price. Kaminsky, the 28th overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, boasts a 2.15 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 186/68 K/BB ratio in 217 1/3 career minor league innings. The 20-year-old left-hander is currently in High-A ball. Moss, meanwhile, has struggled offensively since undergoing hip surgery in 2014. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:02 am

  • Marte steals base, scores run on Wed.
    Starling Marte finished 1-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored on Wednesday night.

    Advice: The steal was his 20th of the season. Marte had to be scratched from the Pirates' starting lineup on Tuesday due to a stomach ache, but he's obviously just fine. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 am
  • STL talking to Indians about Brandon Moss
    According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the Cardinals are talking to the Indians about Brandon Moss.

    Advice: Moss can play both first base and corner outfield, which fits the Cardinals' immediate need now that Matt Holliday is headed back to the disabled list with a re-strain of his right quad. Moss has struggled in his first season with the Indians, but the 31-year-old registered an .844 OPS (135 OPS+) for the A's between 2012-2014. Cotillo says there's been talk of a one-for-one swap of Moss and Cardinals pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:46 am

  • Justin Upton hits 17th homer
    Justin Upton went 2-for-4 and hit his 17th homer Wednesday versus the Mets.

    Advice: He also had a sac fly and finished the night with three RBI. He's still batting just .186 in 156 at-bats since the beginning of June, but better days are surely ahead. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:35 pm
  • Mets have inquired on Yoenis Cespedes
    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Mets have spoken to the Tigers about Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: Morosi cautions that there is only minimal interest from the Mets at this time. With the team reportedly closing in on a deal for an outfielder, there should be a resolution soon. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:27 pm
  • Angels designate Navarro for assignment
    Angels designated OF Efren Navarro for assignment.

    Advice: Anaheim needed to clear out roster spots for the arrival of David Murphy and David DeJesus. Navarro, 29, is a .248/.306/.328 career hitter at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:39 pm

  • Dodgers/Marlins deal could involve third team
    Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that there is a third team involved in the trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Bowden says the deal will be "bigger than expected." There's a good chance it means Morse will be flipped to another team, as the Dodgers have little use for him. We should know more details later Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:43 pm
  • '30/70' chance that Carlos Gonzalez is traded
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that there's a "30/70" chance that Carlos Gonzalez is traded.

    Advice: The Rockies are willing to listen to offers for Gonzalez, but they apparently haven't gotten any yet to motivate them to trade the slugger. CarGo is the hottest hitter in baseball with a .431/.471/.969 batting line and 10 homers over his last 16 games. He's owed $37 million from 2016-2017. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:13 am
  • Corey Dickerson sitting out on Wednesday
    Corey Dickerson is not in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He's on the bench with the Cubs throwing lefty Jon Lester. Drew Stubbs is handling left field in Dickerson's place. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:05 am
  • Parra adds 3 hits, scores 3 runs as MIL wins
    Gerardo Parra went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple, and three runs scored while extending his hitting streak to 11 games in Tuesday's win against the Giants.

    Advice: Parra led off the game with a double and came around to score in a two-run opening frame. He led off the third with a single and scored, then tripled and scored in the seventh. Parra is having a career year, batting .324/.365/.517 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, 52 runs scored, and seven stolen bases. He could be wearing a new uniform in the next two days as the trade deadline approaches. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:55 pm
  • Dickerson has RBI, run scored against Cubs
    Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dickerson had a single and a double in the game, collecting an RBI on a groundout in the fifth inning. Since returning to the lineup, the 26-year-old is 7-for-16 with multiple hits in three of his four games. The strong return to the lineup has his overall line up to .315/.347/.510. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:36 pm
  • Cespedes homers again but Tigers lose to Rays
    Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, but the Tigers were felled by the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cespedes hit a solo home run off of Jake Odorizzi in the fourth inning to create a 1-1 tie. He's gone deep in back-to-back games and seven times in 19 games since July 6, giving him 17 on the year with 58 RBI and a .289/.321/.500. The Tigers are four games under .500 with less than three days remaining until the trade deadline. Cespedes remains a candidate to be moved in a trade. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:55 pm
  • Marte scratched from lineup due to illness
    Starling Marte was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup because of gastritis.

    Advice: In other words, he has a tummy ache. Marte should be ready to roll in a day or two. Jaff Decker has assumed his spot in left field. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:46 pm

  • Rockies more likely to trade CarGo in winter?
    Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com hears from a source who believes the Rockies are more likely to trade Carlos Gonzalez over the winter as opposed to this week.

    Advice: We're not so sure about that, as Gonzalez has been red-hot this month. Given his injury history, this could be the perfect time for the Rockies to get aggressive. The 29-year-old is still owed $37 million from 2016-2017. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:57 pm

  • Rockies prepared to trade Carlos Gonzalez
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies are planning to trade outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.

    Advice: And the timing couldn't be better, as Gonzalez went deep twice on Monday against the Cubs and now has 10 home runs this month. The 29-year-old is batting .278/.332/.520 with 20 home runs and 51 RBI overall this season. His injury history and contract could cause some teams to shy away, but he has the potential to be an impact bat for a contender. He's making $16 million this season and is owed $37 million from 2016-2017. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:44 am
  • Gonzalez homers twice, but the Rockies lose
    Carlos Gonzalez homered twice in a 4-for-5 effort, but the Rockies lost to the Cubs on Monday.

    Advice: Gonzalez started the scoring when he drilled a two-run home run to left-center off of Kyle Hendricks in the third inning. He helped the Rockies rally for a four-run ninth inning, drilling a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning against Rafael Soriano. It wasn't a lead they would hold, however. Gonzalez has been on fire in July, racking up 10 multi-hit performances in 19 games. He has 20 home runs on the season with 51 RBI and a .278/.332/.520 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:42 pm
  • Cespedes knocks in both Tiger runs in a loss
    Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a solo home run, accounting for all of the Tigers' offense in Monday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Cespedes got the Tigers on the board with a solo home run off of Nate Karns in the seventh inning to make it 3-1, then added an RBI single in the eighth. The Tigers weren't doing much else offensively. Cespedes has put together a fine season, batting .287/.319/.492 with 16 home runs and 57 RBI. He could be wearing a new uniform by Saturday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:48 pm
  • Orioles, Padres talking Justin Upton trade
    ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Orioles and Padres have discussed a trade that would send Justin Upton to Baltimore.

    Advice: The O's have been one of the clubs connected to Upton previously. However, Stark also notes that the deal could be expanded to include Andrew Cashner or Tyson Ross. It's unclear at this point how close something might be to getting done. The Orioles have been mentioned as a possible seller, but they sit just 3.5 games out of a Wild Card spot and this rumor would seem to indicate that they have no plans to give up on a playoff run. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:19 pm
  • CarGo stays hot as Rockies rout the Reds
    Carlos Gonzalez stayed red-hot on Sunday, blasting another pair of home runs and driving in six as the Rockies routed the Reds 17-7 at Coors Field.

    Advice: Gonzalez delivered an RBI single to start a 10-run third inning, which he finished with a two-run homer. He wasn't finished though, as he clobbered a three-run shot in the fifth to cap off his massive afternoon. He has now hit seven home runs in his last nine games and is slashing .270/.326/.497 on the season with 18 long balls and 47 RBI. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:22 pm

  • Coco Crisp (neck) to begin rehab assignment
    Coco Crisp (neck) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Stockton on Monday.

    Advice: He's slated to play for games there before being re-evaluated, so it sounds like Crisp could be activated by the end of the week.

  • Mets unwilling to meet asking price for Upton
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Mets and Padres have reached an impasse in trade talks for Justin Upton.

    Advice: The Padres are reportedly demanding at least one high-end prospect, possibly two, but the Mets have balked at the high asking price. While the two sides could certainly resume talks, it seems more likely that the Mets will target a lower-level outfielder such as Gerardo Parra from the Brewers, rather than mortgage any part of their future. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:19 am
  • Ben Revere not in Phillies lineup on Saturday
    Ben Revere is not in the Phillies starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Cubs.

    Advice: It doesn't appear to be anything more than a day of rest for Revere, who has been a popular name in trade rumblings this week. Odubel Hererra will start in his place in center field and will bat second for the Phillies against Jake Arrieta. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:03 am
  • CarGo has two-homer night against Reds
    Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo homers in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Make that five home runs in his last eight games. Who knows if the Rockies will actually deal CarGo before next Friday's non-waiver trade deadline, but the recent power surge is surely appreciated by the front office. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:43 pm
  • Coco Crisp (neck) could begin rehab soon
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Coco Crisp (neck) has been feeling better in recent days and could begin a minor league rehab assignment soon.

    Advice: Crisp has been taking batting practice since Tuesday without any issues. The oft-injured outfielder has been limited to just 13 games this season due to a wide variety of ailments. He's likely going to require a lengthy rehab stint, and if he comes through it healthy could rejoin the A's at some point in early August. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:26 pm

  • Justin Upton returns to Padres lineup Friday
    Justin Upton (oblique) has returned to the Padres starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Upton missed the previous four games due to an oblique issue. The 27-year-old, who is a hot commodity on the trade market, is slashing .251/.330/.425 with 15 homers, 49 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 90 games on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:59 pm
  • Rockies activate Corey Dickerson from DL
    Rockies activated OF Corey Dickerson from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Dickerson had been sidelined since mid-June due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He'll immediately jump back into the Rockies lineup, hitting sixth against Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds on Friday. Fantasy owners should get him active and into lineups for the weekend series at Coors Field. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:22 pm
  • Gerardo Parra not in Brewers lineup on Friday
    Gerardo Parra is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest for Parra against opposing left-hander Patrick Corbin. Khris Davis will start in left field and bat sixth for the Brewers on Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:15 pm
  • Giants could bring back Michael Morse
    MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that Michael Morse "might just be dealt" to the Giants.

    Advice: Morse, of course, had a nice season for the Giants last year. However, he's hit only .206/.268/.310 during an injury-shortened 2015 campaign and is owed $8 million next season. Plus, the Giants don't really have a need for him other than a bat off the bench. It's hard to see a fit unless the Marlins pay down the bulk of what remains on his contract. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:45 am
  • Justin Upton (oblique) expected back Friday
    Justin Upton (oblique) is expected back in the Padres' lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Upton missed a fourth straight start on Thursday, but he took batting practice before the game and then pinch-hit in it. The outfielder has been battling tightness in his left oblique. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:22 am
  • Justin Upton feels better, remains sidelined
    Justin Upton (oblique) said that he felt better on Thursday, but remained out of the lineup for a fourth straight game.

    Advice: Upton was scheduled to take batting practice on Thursday, and there have been no indications that anything went wrong with that session. He should still be considered day-to-day with a return over the weekend looking more and more likely. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:39 pm
  • Gonzalez's three-run homer not enough vs TEX
    Carlos Gonzalez smashed a three-run homer in Wednesday's 10-8 loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Gonzalez's three-run homer in the eighth inning tied the game at 8-all, but alas, the Rockies bullpen immediately blew the team's new-found lease on life. The outfielder would finish the game 1-for-4. After some tough sledding early in the season, the once-mighty slugger has shown signs of life in June and July and has pushed his overall slash-line to .258/.315/.455 to pair with 14 homers and 39 RBI. He's bounced back nicely from an injury-plagued 2014 and he could post a very good second half to the season if he's able to keep this going. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:25 pm
  • Dickerson (foot) could return this weekend
    Corey Dickerson (foot) is likely to return to the Rockies' active roster this weekend.

    Advice: Dickerson is 4-for-11 with an RBI, a walk, and two runs scored in three rehab games spread between High-A Modesto and Triple-A Albuquerque. Most important is that he has felt no discomfort in his left foot, which has been suffering from plantar fasciitis all season. Dickerson has appeared in just 38 games for the Rockies, but he has produced an .843 OPS and five home runs though the lingering foot injury. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:26 pm
  • Abraham Almonte recalled from Triple-A
    Padres recalled OF Abraham Almonte from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Almonte has hit only .186/.255/.233 over 23 games with the big club this season. He'll provide some outfield depth with Justin Upton (oblique) banged up. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:52 am

  • Morse homers as Marlins top the D'Backs
    Michael Morse went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, helping the Marlins top the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Morse added insurance in a low-scoring affair, clubbing a solo home run to right field off of Jeremy Hellickson in the seventh inning. It was a rare sign of light at the plate for the veteran, who is hitting a paltry .211/.268/.316 with four home runs and 12 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:40 pm
  • Marte has two hits, stolen base against KC
    Starling Marte went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Marte doubled off Royals starter Jason Vargas in the second inning before stealing third base, but his teammates weren't able to drive him in. Marte has three multi-hit games in his last four contests. The 26-year-old is now hitting .283/.331/.455 with 13 homers, 50 RBI, 47 runs scored and 19 steals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:52 pm
  • Parra triples twice, scores two runs in win
    Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with two triples, an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Indians on Tuesday.

    Advice: Parra led off the bottom of the first inning with a triple, later scoring a run, and he managed to do it again with an RBI triple in the eighth. The outfielder is having a heck of a season after starting the year in a part-time role -- after Tuesday's game, Parra is hitting .315/.352/.514 with nine homers, 31 RBI, 45 runs scored and six steals. He's playing well enough that he may be playing his way out of Milwaukee and onto a championship contender by next week's trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:18 pm
  • Coco Crisp (neck) takes batting practice
    Coco Crisp (neck) will take a full round of batting practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's a big step for the outfielder. Crisp has been sidelined since late May with a nagging neck issue and had his progress slowed recently by a bout with kidney stones. A's manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that he expects to know by early next week whether Crisp can start a rehab assignment soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:24 pm

  • Mets keeping an eye on Gerardo Parra
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are looking at Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra.

    Advice: This confirms a report from Newsday's Marc Carig, who hears that the Mets are also keeping an eye on big names like Justin Upton and Carlos Gomez. Parra figures to be very popular leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but his price tag could be lower than Upton or Gomez. Known for his solid defense, the 28-year-old is having a huge year at the plate this season, batting .313/.348/.500 with nine home runs, 30 RBI, and six steals over 90 games.
