  • Dodgers place Justin Turner on 15-day DL
    Dodgers placed INF Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28, with a skin infection on his right thigh.

    Advice: Alex Guerrero and Alberto Callaspo will continue to hold down the fort at the hot corner until Turner is ready to return. He's in the midst of an outstanding season offensively, slashing .323/.387/.563 with 13 homers and 44 RBI in just 254 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:55 pm

  • Robinson Cano (abdomen) out again Friday
    Robinson Cano (abdomen) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's likely to sit out through the weekend with a Grade 1 abdominal strain. The Mariners have brought up Ketel Marte for infield help while Cano recovers. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:53 pm
  • Joe Panik (back) returns to Giants' lineup
    Joe Panik (back) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Panik missed a couple games with a stiff back. He returns to a .309/.375/.440 batting line. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:28 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
  • Donovan Solano back from paternity leave
    Marlins activated INF Donovan Solano from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: He'll return to his utility role. Solano is hitting an embarrassing .145/.185/.210 over 44 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:11 pm
  • Marlins activate, then release Jeff Baker
    Marlins activated INF Jeff Baker from the 15-day disabled list; released hmi.

    Advice: Baker is apparently over his intercostal strain but is now looking for a new job. The 34-year-old has hit only .208/.288/.375 this season, but he's been a big weapon versus lefties in the past so someone figures to take a shot on him. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:40 am

  • Devon Travis (shoulder) headed to DL
    Blue Jays placed 2B Devon Travis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 29, with a left shoulder strain.

    Advice: Travis re-injured his left shoulder on Tuesday. He was given a cortisone shot in hopes that he'd be able to power through the ailment, but apparently it hasn't had the desired effect. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:25 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.

  • Lindor batting .329 in his last 18 games
    Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the A's.

    Advice: The rookie shortstop had a three-run homer and four RBI in his last game, Wednesday against the Royals. His fireworks weren't as bright tonight, but this was another promising showing by Lindor, who is really heating up. He's hit safely in 15 of his last 18 games to raise his average from .205 to .264. During that stretch, he's gone 25-for-76 (.329) with 11 runs, 13 RBI, four homers and a .358 OBP. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:44 pm
  • D.J. LeMahieu goes 3-for-4 against Cards
    D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 on Thursday, raising his average to .325.

    Advice: That's three three-hit games in four days for the NL All-Star. Still, LeMahieu's value is down since the start of the week, since he's now batting lower in the Rockies order following the Jose Reyes acquisition. With Reyes taking over the second spot, LeMahieu hit sixth tonight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Phillips fills it up: 2 HR, 7 RBI, 2 SB
    Brandon Phillips went 4-for-5 with two homers, seven RBI and two steals as the Reds smoked the Pirates 15-5 on Thursday.

    Advice: That's about as good of a game for fantasy purposes as you'll see. According to Baseball-Reference's Play Index, he's the first player since Ryan Spilborghs in 2009 with two homers and two steals in a game. He's just the third since at least 1914 with seven RBI and two steals, joining Mickey Mantle in 1962 and Gary Sheffield in 1995. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Mariners option Chris Taylor to Triple-A
    Mariners optioned SS Chris Taylor to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Taylor went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday, but is hitting just .170/.220/.223 on the season. Perhaps he'll benefit from playing everyday at Triple-A, giving him a chance to get back on track. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:53 pm

  • Dodgers acquire Jose Peraza in huge trade
    Dodgers acquired UTIL Jose Peraza from the Braves in the 13-player, three-team Hector Olivera trade.

    Advice: Peraza entered the 2015 season as a consensus top-100 prospect, but some of that shine has worn off. As of Thursday's official trade announcement, he was batting just .294/.318/.379 in 96 games at Triple-A Gwinnett. The 21-year-old has played second base, shortstop, and center field in the minor leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:24 pm

  • Astros activate Jed Lowrie from disabled list
    Astros activated INF Jed Lowrie from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: Lowrie was the Astros' regular shortstop prior to suffering a torn ligament in his right thumb in late April, but he now figures to get the majority of the playing time at third base. Sure enough, he's starting at the hot corner Thursday while Luis Valbuena plays first base. Lowrie was batting .300/.432/.567 with four homers and 10 RBI in 18 games prior to the injury.

    Cardinals recalled INF Greg Garcia from Triple-A Memphis.

  • Cubs aggressively trying to move SS Castro
    ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Cubs are "aggressively trying to include Starlin Castro in any deal."

    Advice: It's notable that Addison Russell started at shortstop on Wednesday. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said earlier this week that Castro would not be traded, but that's not a promise he can keep. The 25-year-old is batting just .237/.271/.305 in 406 plate appearances this season and his defense at shortstop has deteriorated. There's been talk of interest from the Padres. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:32 am
  • Lawrie's 4 hits, 4 RBI not enough to beat LAD
    Brett Lawrie went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a homer, three runs scored and four RBI in a loss Wednesday to the Dodgers.

    Advice: He also stole a bag in the monster performance. Lawrie started at third tonight, but he's expected to also draw starts at second base in the wake of Tuesday's Ben Zobrist trade. He's slashing .280/.314/.412 and is on pace for 14 homers, 67 RBI, 54 runs and eight steals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:49 pm

  • Lowrie to return to Astros lineup Thursday
    Jed Lowrie (thumb) will be activated from the disabled list and return to the Astros lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Lowrie will start at third base for the Astros, with Carlos Correa firmly entrenched as the team's starting shortstop. Before landing on the shelf, the 31-year-old was hitting .300/.432/.567 with four homers and 10 RBI in 18 games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:45 pm

  • Jose Peraza would be included in Dodgers deal
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Jose Peraza would head to the Dodgers in the rumored three-team deal with the Marlins.

    Advice: As it currently stands, the Dodgers would receive Peraza, Alex Wood and Jim Johnson from the Braves plus Mat Latos and Michael Morse from the Marlins. The Braves would receive Hector Olivera, Zach Bird and a compensation pick, while the Marlins would acquire three low-level minor league pitchers. There are still hurdles to clear, so don't expect anything to be finalized until Thursday at the earliest. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:54 pm

  • Justin Turner will miss a few more games
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Justin Turner will miss a few more games due to the infection in his leg.

    Advice: Turner was forced to sit out on Tuesday and Wednesday after a pimple in his leg became infected and required a trip to the emergency room. Look for Alberto Callaspo and Alex Guerrero to continue see additional playing time in his absence. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:56 pm

  • Francisco Lindor homers, drives in four runs
    Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Lindor singled in his first at-bat, hit a sacrifice fly in his second and capped off his day with a three-run homer in the sixth. The shortstop has really turned it up a notch of late, hitting .324 with four homers and 12 RBI over his last 16 games. It was an offensive explosion for the Tribe, as they pounded out 18 hits -- including four home runs -- and 12 runs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:30 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera homers in Rays' loss
    Asdrubal Cabrera belted a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Cabrera's solo shot in the fifth inning represented the lone run for the Rays. He also gave it back and then some, as a crucial error by the shortstop in the seventh led to the Tigers' only two runs. Cabrera is batting just .231/.281/.373 for Tampa this season.

  • Cano has abdominal strain, will undergo MRI
    Robinson Cano is dealing with an abdominal strain and will undergo an MRI.

    Advice: Cano initially was hurt while playing the field on Monday. The ailment isn't considered serious, as the Mariners are saying the MRI is precautionary. He's expected to travel with the M's for their road trip that begins Thursday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:30 am

  • Joe Panik (back) to sit out again Wednesday
    Joe Panik will miss a second straight game Wednesday due to back tightness.

    Advice: Panik noted that it wasn't one play that caused the injury, but rather it's just "one of those things" you have to deal with during a long season. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:24 am
  • Ryan collects three RBI in lopsided victory
    Brendan Ryan had two RBI doubles -- both coming in the second inning -- and finished 2-for-6 with three RBI in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Yankees batted around in an 11-run second inning, with Ryan providing a two-run double early before capping the scoring with another RBI double later in the inning. The offensive performance was unusual for Ryan, who had just eight RBI in 49 games all of last season. Ryan is hitting a deceptive .276/.323/.517 through 11 games this year.

    Advice: Altuve drove in runs in three different innings, proving to be in the right place at the right time on several occasions. He had an RBI single in the second, a two-run single in the fourth and a two-run double in the sixth. The five-RBI game was his first in 606 career games. The second baseman is batting .305/.349/.432 with nine homers, 48 RBI, 54 runs scored and 28 steals overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:48 pm

  • LeMahieu falls homer shy of cycle in Rox win
    D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and two runs scored in the Rockies' 7-2 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Advice: LeMahieu got the scoring started with an RBI double in the first inning, coming around to score later in the inning. He fell a homer shy of a cycle, but that's not terribly surprising given that he's hit just 13 homers in 469 career games. Still, the 27-year-old is on fire in July, riding an 18-game hitting streak en route to a .324/.381/.423 overall line. His 56 runs scored are eighth-most in the National League.

  • Travis hits leadoff HR, but Jays fall to PHI
    Devon Travis hit a leadoff home run in a 1-for-2 effort before leaving Tuesday's loss to the Phillies with a left shoulder injury.

    Advice: Travis was batting leadoff following the departure of shortstop Jose Reyes in the Troy Tulowitzki trade. He greeted Adam Morgan rudely with a home run to lead off the game. He struck out to end the second inning before leaving the game with a left shoulder injury, likely a re-aggravation of the issue which forced him to the disabled list for five weeks earlier this season. Travis has otherwise had a great season, batting .304/.361/.498 with eight home runs and 35 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:03 pm

    Rockies recalled INF Cristhian Adames from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Adames has hit .296/.342/.416 with seven home runs and seven stolen bases in 86 games this season at the Triple-A level. The 24-year-old can play all over the infield, but he'll get most of his action at shortstop with Troy Tulowitzki now out of the picture. There's some talk that the Rockies might flip Jose Reyes, which could then open up a starting job for Adames. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:55 pm

  • Cano walks twice, homers, but Mariners lose
    Robinson Cano had a pair of walks and a solo home run in five plate appearances, but the Mariners fell to the Diamondbacks in 10 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Cano delivered a solo home run off of Robbie Ray in the sixth inning to reduce the Mariners' deficit to one run. He's had a torrid July, homering seven times while hitting .347 (33-for-95). As a result, his triple-slash line is up to .265/.309/.416 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI on the season.

  • Cabrera (hamstring) to be activated Tuesday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.

  • Lindor's three-run homer not enough in a loss
    Francisco Lindor slugged a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Royals, finishing 1-for-5.

    Advice: The Indians had fallen behind 9-1 when Lindor brought them back in the game with a three-run home run off of Joe Blanton in the seventh inning. The 21-year-old has hit safely in six straight games and now owns a .260/.297/.377 batting line with four home runs and 15 RBI since making his major league debut on June 14.

  • Pads have discussed Starlin Castro with Cubs
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Padres have discussed Starlin Castro with the Cubs.

    Advice: Morosi adds that the Cubs have inquired on the Padres' starters and he opines that a Castro-for-James Shields swap might make some sense. Castro has been a colossal disappointment with the Cubs this season, hitting just .233/.268/.302 with five homers. He's under contract through 2019 and the Cubs would probably love to use him as a trade chip this week to get pitching help. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:33 pm
  • Asdrubal (hamstring) ready for rehab games
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is set to begin a rehab assignment Monday night with High-A Port Charlotte.

    Advice: Cabrera, who's been out since July 12 with a strained right hamstring, will play between five and seven innings in his first rehab game. The expectation is that his rehab assignment will be a short one. "He's a veteran guy, so he gives us as good a sense as anybody as to when he thinks he's ready," manager Kevin Cash said Sunday. "But I know he's itching to get back." Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:00 am

  • Jose Altuve hits walkoff homer
    Jose Altuve went 4-for-5 and hit a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth as the Astros edged the Red Sox 5-4 on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the Astros' first walkoff blast of their very surprising season. Altuve also doubled and stole a base. He raised his average to .304, which is the highest he's finished a game at since May 21. This makes two homers and four doubles in his last seven games, which is quite a power surge for him.

  • Lindor smacks homer in first to set tone
    Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday afternoon's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: The home run was Lindor's third of the season. He's hitting a relatively unimpressive .246/.284/.349 across 126 at-bats, but there's possible value to be had here in deeper AL-only formats so long as he continues to hit in the two-hole. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:03 pm
  • Starlin Castro sitting out on Wednesday
    Starlin Castro is absent from the Cubs' lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Reds.

    Advice: Addison Russell is at shortstop, with Jonathan Herrera covering second base. Castro will be back out there for the nightcap. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:03 am
  • Altuve reaches four times, scores two runs
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-3 with two walks, an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: As he's done for years, Altuve served as a catalyst for the Astros offense in the win. He walked to lead off the bottom of the first inning, stole second base and scored later in the inning. He added another run and an RBI single later in the game. Altuve is now hitting .296/.342/.419 with 49 runs scored, 41 RBI and an AL-best 27 steals on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:39 pm

  • Turner belts 12th home run in loss to Braves
    Justin Turner hit his 12th home run of the season in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: A night after going 4-for-4 with three singles, Turner connected on a solo shot against Braves starter Alex Wood in Tuesday's contest. It ended up being his only hit on the night. The infielder continues to enjoy a breakout year in Los Angeles, as he's now hitting .322 with a .940 OPS and a career-high 12 homers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:48 pm

  • Lowrie (thumb) to begin rehab games on Wed.
    Jed Lowrie (thumb) is set to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: Lowrie has been taking rounds of batting practice without issue since late last week. The 31-year-old underwent surgery in April to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb and Carlos Correa has since taken over at shortstop for Houston. But the switch-hitting Lowrie could work his way into playing time at the hot corner -- stealing some starts from lefty Luis Valbuena -- and he'll be a nice bench piece for the stretch run.
