  • McGehee hitless again, average down to .208
    Casey McGehee went hitless again Tuesday, lowering his average to .208.

    Advice: McGehee went 0-for-3 before being removed from the game. He's 6-for-41 since July 17, dropping his overall line to .208/.277/.298. The Marlins aren't going anywhere, but it's hard to understand why they keep running him out there at this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:51 pm
  • Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) back in lineup
    Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) is back in the Indians' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Chisenhall had to exit Monday's contest after suffering whiplash on a diving attempt. He's making his fifth straight start in right field. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:41 pm
  • Giants outright Joaquin Arias to AAA Fresno
    Giants sent INF Joaquin Arias outright to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Arias was designated for assignment by the Giants on July 27 and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 30-year-old is a .265/.293/.350 career hitter in the majors. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:51 pm

  • A's option Max Muncy back to Nashville
    Athletics optioned INF Max Muncy to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Muncy gets the boot to clear a roster spot for Danny Valencia, who was claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays on Monday. Muncy, 24, has batted just .207/.275/.378 in 91 plate appearances this season for Toronto. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:23 pm

  • Braves recall Terdoslavich from Triple-A
    Braves recalled INF/OF Joey Terdoslavich from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Terdoslavich will replace the injured Freddie Freeman (oblique) on the active roster. The 26-year-old is batting .147/.171/.265 in 19 games with the Braves this season and will function in a utility role. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:35 am
  • Lonnie Chisenhall departs with whiplash
    Lonnie Chisenhall left Monday's game against the Angels due to a cervical strain.

    Advice: It's a fancy way of saying he had whiplash, which he suffered after making a diving attempt in right field. Consider Chisenhall day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:06 pm
  • Solarte's 2 HR, 4 RBI power Padres to a win
    Yangervis Solarte hit two home runs, knocked in four runs, and drew a walk in five plate appearances in Monday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Solarte put the Padres on the board early with a first-inning solo home run against Wily Peralta. He added a three-run home run to cap off a six-run seventh inning. The third baseman is on a nine-game hitting streak, the most recent four of which have included multiple hits. Solarte owns a productive .266/.319/.418 batting line with seven home runs and 40 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:30 pm
  • Adam Duvall homers in Louisville debut
    Reds 1B prospect Adam Duvall homered in his first game for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

    Advice: Duvall now has 27 round-trippers in 408 at-bats this year. There's no denying his immense power, but unfortunately Duvall is in the same position he was in San Francisco. With the Giants, he was blocked at first base by Brandon Belt. Now in Cincinnati, the same is true with Joey Votto. Duvall's best chance to crack the majors might be as a corner outfielder, though it's unclear if he can make that transition. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:51 pm

  • Athletics pick up Danny Valencia off waivers
    Athletics claimed INF/OF Danny Valencia off waivers from the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Valencia was designated for assignment by Toronto in a somewhat surprising move after the July 31 trade deadline. He's having a very good season and drew interest from a range of teams (including the White Sox, Rangers, and Orioles) on the waiver wire. The 30-year-old probably isn't going to carry a ton of fantasy value in Oakland. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:06 pm

  • Michael Morse starting at 1B on Monday
    Michael Morse is batting seventh and starting at first base Monday in his Pirates debut.

    Advice: Morse was acquired from the Dodgers in a July 31 deadline trade. He had been shipped from Miami to Los Angeles one day prior as part of a big 13-player, three-team swap. The 33-year-old first baseman has struggled mightily this season and probably won't suddenly take on significant fantasy value with Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:00 pm

  • Cardinals outright Dan Johnson to Triple-A
    Cardinals sent 1B Dan Johnson outright to Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: The veteran first baseman passed through waivers unclaimed and has opted to remain with the Cardinals as opposed to electing free agency. The 35-year-old is hitting .242/.350/.427 with 11 homers and 44 RBI at Triple-A this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:22 pm

  • ChiSox, Rangers, O's interested in Valencia
    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the White Sox, Rangers and Orioles have emerged as the most likely destinations for Danny Valencia.

    Advice: In a bit of a surprise move, Valencia was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday. He is expected to be claimed off trade waivers on Monday, which will give the Jays an opportunity to deal him. Valencia is having a terrific season, slashing .296/.331/.506 with seven long balls and 29 RBI in his 162 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:16 pm

  • Canha walks A's off with double in 10th
    Mark Canha hit a walk-off double to propel the A's to a 2-1 win over the Indians on Sunday.

    Advice: Canha had not recorded a hit entering the 10th inning, but his two-out double off of Indians reliever Cody Allen scored Sam Fuld from first to give the A's a low-scoring win. Canha's hitting .229/.292/.381 with eight homers and 35 RBI in 236 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:11 pm

  • Howard stays hot with another multi-hit game
    Ryan Howard went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the Phillies lost 6-2 to the Braves on Sunday.

    Advice: Howard doubled to lead off the second inning and later scored on Cody Asche's RBI single to give the Phillies an early 1-0 lead. The first baseman is on an eight-game hitting streak, the most recent three of which have included multiple hits. He has a .241/.292/.464 batting line on the year with 18 home runs and 60 RBI. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:29 pm
  • Loney drives in two runs to help down Red Sox
    James Loney went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI hits in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Loney doubled home a run off Red Sox starter Wade Miley in the fourth inning and later hit a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth inning to help the Rays to a 4-3 win over their division rivals. The first baseman isn't hitting particularly well this season (.263/.313/.345 with three homers and 20 RBI) and holds little-to-no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:04 pm
  • Kyle Blanks (Achilles) nears rehab games
    Kyle Blanks (Achilles) is expected to begin a rehab assignment within the next 10 days.

    Advice: Blanks has been on the shelf since mid-June with a nagging right Achilles injury. He's a poor bet to remain healthy even if he's activated soon. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:04 am
    15-Day DL

  • Pearce (oblique) hopes to swing bat soon
    Steve Pearce (oblique) hopes to throw and swing a bat this week.

    Advice: Pearce to this point has been limited to rest and treatment since straining his left oblique two weeks ago, but he said he was finally pain-free on Saturday. He might need a couple rehab games but doesn't appear too far off from a return if he can avoid a setback. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:22 am

  • Lonnie Chisenhall homers for Indians
    Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians' only run Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: Chisenhall is 4-for-11 in three games since returning to the majors Thursday. Since he's likely to keep on starting in the outfield against righties, he should be a nice AL-only option the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:48 pm
  • Howard rips three hits in Saturday's rout
    Ryan Howard led the Phillies with three hits Saturday in a blowout win over the Braves.

    Advice: Howard contributed an RBI single during the Phillies' four-run fourth inning. The former MVP is hitting a robust .313 since the All-Star break. He leads Philadelphia in home runs (18), RBI (60) and strikeouts (101) this season. Despite winning eight of their last nine, the Phillies remain 14 and a half games behind first-place Washington in the NL East. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:14 pm
  • Jays designate Danny Valencia for assignment
    Blue Jays designated INF/OF Danny Valencia for assignment.

    Advice: With all of the recent acquisitions that the Blue Jays have made, they were forced to make a few tough decisions on their roster and it appears that Valencia is the odd-man out. The lefty-masher was hitting .296/.331/.506 overall with seven homers and 29 RBI in 162 at-bats. He should attract interest from plenty of teams looking to upgrade their bench.

  • Lonnie Chisenhall goes 3-for-4, doubles
    Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

    Advice: Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. Ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:05 am
  • 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 Friday, 1:23 pm

  • Adam Duvall goes to Reds in Leake deal
    Reds acquired INF Adam Duvall and RHP Keury Mella from the Giants in exchange for RHP Mike Leake.

    Advice: Duvall, 26, hit 27 homers at Triple-A last season and has 26 so far in 2015, but he's been blocked at the major league level and not gotten much of a chance. Unfortunately for him, he's now blocked again in Cincinnati by Joey Votto and Todd Frazier. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:22 am

  • 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 Thursday, 4:34 pm
    4:05 pm vs ChC
     
  • Indians recall Lonnie Chisenhall from AAA
    Indians recalled INF Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: With Brandon Moss shipped out of town, Chisenhall could see some action in the corner outfield, where he had been working in the minors. Unless he finds everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:00 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 Thursday, 1:34 pm
    4:05 pm vs ChC
     
  • Cardinals DFA 35-year-old Dan Johnson
    Cardinals designated 1B Dan Johnson for assignment.

    Advice: Johnson managed just three hits -- all singles -- in 21 plate appearances with the Cardinals. The 35-year-old will probably pass through waivers unclaimed. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:53 am

  • Yangervis Solarte goes 4-for-5
    Yangervis Solarte finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Solarte is playing fairly regularly with Will Middlebrooks in the minors and Cory Spangenberg on the DH, and he's hit well this month, batting .284 with three homers in 74 at-bats. There's no mixed-league value here at all, but he's giving the Padres a lift. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:38 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
    4:05 pm vs ChC
     
  • Max Muncy recalled from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled INF Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: He's taking Ben Zobrist's spot on the roster. Muncy has hit only .203/.273/.367 with the big club this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:01 pm

  • Steve Pearce (oblique) yet to resume activity
    Steve Pearce (oblique) remains limited to rest and treatment.

    Advice: Pearce is eligible to return from his left oblique strain in a week, but he's not going to be ready at that point. "If you test it and you're wrong, you set yourself back another two weeks," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:07 pm

  • Joaquin Arias designated for assignment
    Giants designated INF Joaquin Arias for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears space on the roster for the return of Nori Aoki. Arias has been with the Giants since 2012 but was hitting just .207/.207/.276 this season. He'll clear waivers given his $1.45 million salary and should remain in the organization. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:29 pm
