  • Michael Morse ready to return from DL
    Marlins activated Michael Morse (back) from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Miami went struggling right-hander Jarred Cosart to Triple-A New Orleans in the corresponding roster move. Morse hit .270 with one homer and four RBI during his 11-game rehab assignment. He'll share time at first base with hot-hitting Justin Bour. Rotoworld.com

  • Nolan Reimold to go on paternity leave
    Nolan Reimold is expected to go on the paternity list after Sunday's game.

    Advice: He can be away from the team for up to three days. The 31-year-old has played sparingly this year, making just 38 at-bats over 16 games. The 10-day minor league rehab window doesn't apply to players on paternity leave. That allows Ryan Flaherty to take Reimold's roster spot even though he was just optioned on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Astros send Domingo Santana back to AAA
    Astros optioned OF Domingo Santana to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: The Astros needed to clear a roster spot for Jake Marisnick. Santana hit .256 with 2 HR and 8 RBI during his 14-game stint with Houston. The 22-year-old has a higher ceiling than Alex Presley and could get another call-up while George Springer is on the disabled list with a broken wrist. Rotoworld.com

  • J.B. Shuck delivers game-winning double
    J.B. Shuck played the role of hero on Saturday, delivering a pinch-hit RBI double in the eighth inning to break a tie and propel the White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Orioles.

    Advice: He pinch-hit for Geovany Soto with a man on second and one-out in the eighth inning, greeting Darren O'Day with a double to right field to break the 2-2 deadlock. Shuck has played well in his limited playing time this season, slashing .292/.358/.333 with no homers and six RBI in 72 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Pham scores two runs as Cardinals top Padres
    Tommy Pham went 1-for-4 with a double and scored both of the Cardinals runs in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the visiting Padres.

    Advice: Pham clubbed a leadoff double in the sixth inning and came around to score the Cardinals first run on a Matt Carpenter single. He then reached on an error in the eighth inning, swiped second base, advanced on a ground out and dashed home on a sacrifice fly. He should continue to see some playing time in center field while Jon Jay is on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:03 pm
  • Victorino has two hits against Astros
    Shane Victorino went 2-for-4 with two runs scored on Saturday against the Astros.

    Advice: It was his first game action since being activated from the disabled list on Friday. Victorino got the start against right-hander Collin McHugh, but he'll likely be on the short side of a platoon with Alejandro De Aza in right field. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:48 pm
  • Michael Cuddyer remains out of Mets lineup
    Michael Cuddyer remains out of the Mets starting lineup on Saturday.

    Yesterday, 12:48 pm
  • Taylor hits leadoff homer Saturday vs. Giants
    Michael Taylor clubbed a leadoff homer Saturday against the Giants.

    Advice: Taylor made the start in center field Saturday while Denard Span got the day off. The 24-year-old is hitting just .246 with a .295 on-base percentage, but he has been relevant in deeper mixed fantasy leagues because of his power-speed combo. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:36 am
  • Mariners recall James Jones from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled OF James Jones from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The 26-year-old has appeared in seven games for the M's this season, going hitless in eight at-bats. He's likely only with the club as an extra bat for a few days until Hisashi Iwakuma returns from the disabled list on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:48 am
  • Colby Rasmus returns to Astros lineup
    Colby Rasmus (illness) has returned to the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He's back in center field and batting sixth for the Astros on Saturday after missing a week of action due to an infection he sustained from a bug bite. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:16 am
  • Angel Pagan not in Giants lineup on Saturday
    Angel Pagan is not in the Giants starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's matchup against the Nationals.

    Advice: The Giants continue to give the outfielder regular rest in order to keep his knees fresh. Gregor Blanco will start in center field and bat leadoff for the Giants against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals on Saturday, while Ryan Lollis draws his first major league start in left field. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:26 am
  • Rays designate Marc Krauss for assignment
    Rays designated 1B Marc Krauss for assignment.

    Advice: The first baseman was optioned to Triple-A earlier in the week after going just 1-for-10 with seven strikeouts in his limited time with the Rays. There's a chance that he could attract some interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Barnes goes 0-for-3 against Arizona
    Brandon Barnes went 0-for-3 before being removed as part of a double-switch Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Barnes should start losing some time now that the Rockies have brought Drew Stubbs back to the majors. Barnes still has a decent .276 average, but it's going down quickly and he doesn't bring much else to the table. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:54 pm
  • Bourn drives in three to help down Pirates
    Michael Bourn went 2-for-3 with three RBI in Friday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Bourn doubled in a run in the fourth inning, then punched in two more with a single in the eighth to give his team a three run lead and some much needed breathing room. They would ultimately win 5-2. While he does have five hits in his last 11 at-bats, Bourn is still hitting just .234/.305/.284 for the year. He only has 10 extra-base hits and has yet to connect on his first home run. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Cuddyer strikes out as pinch-hitter
    Michael Cuddyer struck out as a pinch-hitter Friday against the Dodgers.

    Friday, 10:44 pm
  • Brad Miller delivers eighth homer
    Brad Miller collected his eighth homer and his 12th double Friday against the A's.

    Advice: It's Miller's second homer in four games. His struggles in limited action against left-handers have taken a toll on his numbers, but he's hitting .267/.357/.487 versus righties. Rotoworld.com

  • Shane Victorino activated from DL
    Red Sox activated OF Shane Victorino from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Victorino has been on the shelf since late May with a calf injury. He's in line to serve on the short side of a platoon in right field with Alejandro De Aza. Rotoworld.com

    Colby Rasmus (illness) is hoping to return to the lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Rasmus was in the hospital from Sunday to Wednesday after developing an infection following a bug bite. He's feeling much better now, though, and is aiming to be back out there shortly. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:29 pm
  • Tommy Pham recalled from Triple-A
    Cardinals recalled OF Tommy Pham from Triple-A Memphis.

    Advice: Pham batted .338/.402/.625 with five homers and six steals over 24 games for Memphis after returning from a quad injury. He's starting in center field Friday and could see some more time there until Matt Holliday (quad) returns from the disabled list an Randal Grichuk moves to center. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:12 pm
  • Brad Miller to remain M's starting shortstop
    Despite the return of Chris Taylor, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon clarified Thursday that Brad Miller will remain the team's starting shortstop.

    Advice: The 25-year-old has struggled at the dish this season, slashing .238/.319/.403 with seven homers and 22 RBI in his 74 games. It sounds like it's a vote of confidence from the skipper, but if Taylor continues to mash the baseball he'll find his way into more playing time soon enough. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Cuddyer (knee) might be headed to DL
    Michael Cuddyer (knee) remained out of the Mets' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

    Advice: He got an injection Wednesday and may need a few days to recover. Manager Terry Collins said Cuddyer could require a trip to the disabled list if he doesn't improve in the next three days. Eric Campbell and John Mayberry would split time in left field if Cuddyer faces a lengthy absence. Rotoworld.com

  • Pagan not in Giants' lineup on Thursday
    Angel Pagan is not in the Giants' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: It's only a day off, though Pagan has been battling some swelling in his left knee. The 34-year-old outfielder is hitting just .266/.303/.322 in 74 games this season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:48 am
  • Bourn serving one-game suspension Thursday
    Michael Bourn will serve his one-game suspension Thursday.

    Advice: Bourn was handed the one-game sentence last week for bumping home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi during an argument. Michael Brantley is starting in center field and Mike Aviles is in left field Thursday versus the Rays. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:00 am
  • Marc Krauss sent to Triple-A Durham by Rays
    Rays optioned 1B Marc Krauss to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Krauss was 1-for-10 with seven strikeouts in four games with the Rays since being acquired from the Angels on June 25. He was optioned to make room for Matt Moore on the active roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Marc Krauss strikes out twice
    Marc Krauss struck out in both of his at-bats Wednesday before being removed for a pinch-hitter.

    Advice: Incredibly, it's the second time in four games for the Rays that Krauss, a left-handed hitter, has been replaced by a right-handed pinch-hitter against a right-handed pitcher. Which makes one wonder why the Rays are playing him at first base or why they bothered acquiring him in the first place. He's 1-for-10 so far for the team. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Cuddyer (knee) expected to avoid DL
    Michael Cuddyer (knee) isn't expected to require a trip to the disabled list.

    Advice: Cuddyer had to leave Tuesday's game with a left knee injury, but an MRI apparently didn't show any serious damage. The Mets think he'll only have to sit out a few days. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 12:44 pm
  • Colby Rasmus hospitalized due to infection
    Colby Rasmus (infection) was hospitalized overnight into Tuesday.

    Advice: Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that Rasmus is "actually improved," but he also sounded less certain that the outfielder would be ready to leave with the club for their road trip that begins Thursday. There's no talk of the disabled list at this point, but it doesn't sound like Rasmus' return to the lineup is imminent. "There’s still a little bit of achiness in there and still a little bit of discomfort," Hinch said. "I think the smart thing for us is just to let the doctors continue to monitor him and get the infection out of there." Rotoworld.com

  • Miller homers as Mariners blank the Padres
    Brad Miller launched a two-run home run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mariners shut the Padres out 5-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller took Ian Kennedy out to right-center in the fourth inning for a two-run homer, making it a 4-0 Mariners lead at the time. It's his seventh homer of the season. He looks certain to surpass his career high of 10 set last season. He's also knocked in 22 runs while batting a passable .237/.316/.404. Rotoworld.com

  • Bourn has two hits, stolen base against Rays
    Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with a stolen base against the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bourn was the only player on either team with multiple hits in the game. The steal was his sixth of the year and first since June 4. A brutal month of June has lowered Bourn's average to .228 with a .298 on-base percentage overall. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:05 pm
  • Cuddyer 'definitely concerned' about knee
    Michael Cuddyer admitted that he was "definitely concerned" about the left knee injury that forced him from Tuesday's game versus the Cubs.

    Advice: Cuddyer said he first felt pain in the knee while running to first base after his first plate appearance, but he wasn't removed until the seventh. The veteran outfielder will undergo an MRI on Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage, but it sounds like a trip to the disabled list could be in the offing. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:56 pm
  • Michael Cuddyer (knee) to have MRI Wed.
    Michael Cuddyer will undergo an MRI on his left knee Wednesday.

    Advice: Cuddyer left Tuesday's game against the Cubs after injuring the knee. It's unclear how worried the Mets are about the outfielder at this point, but the fact that he's having the MRI certainly creats some cause for concern. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:46 pm
  • Michael Cuddyer exits game with sore knee
    Michael Cuddyer left Tuesday's game versus the Cubs with a sore left knee.

    Advice: Cuddyer didn't suffer an obvious injury, so it's unclear how he was hurt. The Mets should have more on the veteran outfielder's status later Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:57 pm
  • Morse (back) to be activated in a few days
    Marlins manager Dan Jennings said Michael Morse (back) will be activated in the next few days.

    Advice: Morse was pulled off his rehab assignment on Monday after tweaking a muscle in his back, but tests taken Tuesday showed nothing major. Morse was originally placed on the disabled list May 23 with a finger sprain. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:36 pm
  • Morse tweaks back muscle on rehab stint
    Michael Morse has returned to Miami after tweaking a back muscle during his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Morse was considered likely to be activated Tuesday, but that's obviously not going to happen now. No word yet on how much time he'll miss. The 33-year-old has already been sidelined since May 23 with a finger sprain. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:39 am
  • Colby Rasmus could play before road trip
    Colby Rasmus (infection) could be available to play before the Astros begin a road trip on Thursday.

    Advice: Rasmus got an infection following a bug bite on his left wrist. He's been given an IV and antibiotics, which have left him lethargic and unavailable to play the last few days. It appears he'll avoid the disabled list, though. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:29 pm
  • Colby Rasmus (infection) out again Monday
    Colby Rasmus (infection) remained out of the Astros' lineup Monday.

    Advice: It's the third straight game he's missed due to a skin infection. Preston Tucker is in left field with Rasmus on the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:12 pm
  • Victorino (calf) nearing return to Boston
    The Red Sox could activate Shane Victorino (calf) from the disabled list as early as Friday against the Astros.

    Advice: Victorino went 1-for-4 in Sunday's rehab game for Triple-A Pawtucket. The Red Sox want to see him play in back-to-back games before activating him. With Hanley Ramirez (hand) sidelined, Victorino could be an everyday player when he comes back. Boston's current outfield features Mookie Betts, Alejandro De Aza, Jackie Bradley and utility man Brock Holt. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 29, 5:08 am
  • Angel Pagan goes 0-for-4 against Rockies
    Angel Pagan, still dealing with swelling in his left knee, went 0-for-4 against the Rockies on Sunday.

    Advice: Pagan has started the last two games even after the Giants called him doubtful for the weekend on Friday. He hasn't done much of anything for fantasy leaguers this year, but the Giants still need him in the lineup with their other two starting outfielders on the DL. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 5:01 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. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 1:32 pm
  • Colby Rasmus (infection) remains out Sunday
    Colby Rasmus (infection) remained out of the Astros' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Rasmus is battling a skin infection and has missed two straight starts. He's day-to-day. George Springer is handling center field Sunday, with Domingo Santana covering right. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 28, 8:43 am
  • Rasmus scratched Saturday with skin infection
    Colby Rasmus was scratched from the Astros starting lineup on Saturday due to a skin infection.

    Advice: Domingo Santana will take his place in right field for the Astros. It's unclear how long the issue may keep Rasmus sidelined, so consider him day-to-day for the time being. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 27, 11:24 am
  • Morse (finger) expected to rejoin Marlins
    Joe Frisaro of MLB.com believes that Michael Morse will rejoin the Marlins within the next couple of days.

    Advice: With the injury to Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlins need a powerful bat in the middle of their lineup, and hope that Morse is healthy enough to provide that. He has looked good on his minor league rehab assignment and should be activated before the end of the weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 27, 9:02 am
  • Bourn has hearing to appeal his suspension
    Michael Bourn had his hearing Friday to appeal his one game suspension for bumping home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi in Tuesday's game.

    Advice: A decision will be made some time between now and July 10 on whether the ban is upheld. Either way, the Indians are likely to have him serve on a day that he would've had off anyways, so there aren't any major fantasy implications here. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 27, 6:01 am
  • Angel Pagan likely to miss Saturday's game
    Angel Pagan isn't likely to play Saturday after sitting Friday with swelling in his left knee.

    Advice: The current hope is that he just misses a couple of days. The Giants can hardly afford to put their third starting outfielder on the disabled list, but it might happen if the knee fails to respond by Sunder. Gregor Blanco is playing center in Pagan's place. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 26, 11:02 pm
  • Krauss has RBI double in Rays' debut
    Marc Krauss had an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Krauss was playing his first game with the Rays after being acquired from the Angels on Thursday. The 27-year-old should see part-time duty at first base until James Loney (finger) is ready to return from the disabled list. There's some pop in his bat, but it's hard to recommend him outside of deeper AL-only formats. He came into Friday's action with a .194/.268/.335 batting line in the majors. Rotoworld.com

  • Taylor has two hits, scores two run in win
    Michael Taylor went 2-for-5 with two runs scored against the Phillies on Friday.

    Advice: Taylor doubled to lead off the game and came around to score before reaching on an infield single in the fifth inning and eventually scoring on an error. The 24-year-old has now hit safely in seven straight games, which includes four multi-hit games. While he's hitting just .249 with a .296 on-base percentage, he has enough power and speed to be useful in deeper mixed fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 26, 7:09 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 26, 6:42 pm
  • Pagan (knee) heading for x-ray and MRI exam
    Angel Pagan is set to undergo X-rays and an MRI exam on his left knee.

    Advice: Pagan bruised his knee when he crashed into the wall during Thursday's game and wasn't feeling good enough to play on Friday so the Giants want to rule out any serious injury. Should he be forced to the disabled list, Justin Maxwell would continue to get extended run in the Giants outfield. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 26, 5:49 pm
  • Angel Pagan scratched from Giants lineup
    Angel Pagan was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: No word yet on the reason for the late switch, but the oft-injured outfielder has dealt with his fair share of ailments this season. Gregor Blanco will hit leadoff for the Giants on Friday with Justin Maxwell entering the lineup and hitting eighth. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 26, 4:03 pm
  • Victorino (calf) goes 2-for-3 in rehab game
    Shane Victorino (calf) went 2-for-3 with a double in his latest minor league rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday.

    Advice: Victorino has been on the shelf since May 24 due to a left calf strain. He is expected to return to the Red Sox early next week, and could log considerable time in right field with Rusney Castillo back in Triple-A, though with Alejandro De Aza playing well, he'll have to hit to remain in the lineup against right-handers. Rotoworld.com
    Jun 25, 8:23 pm
  • Rays acquire Marc Krauss from Angels
    Rays acquired 1B Marc Krauss from the Angels for Kyle Winkler.

    Advice: The 27-year-old slugger struggled in his brief time with the Angels, but was hitting .289/.415/.453 with four homers and 29 RBI in 47 games at Triple-A Salt Lake. He should handle first base regularly until James Loney (finger) returns, making him worth an add in AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com
