  • Headley homers, drives in three in rout of KC
    Chase Headley went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI as the Yankees torched the Royals 14-1 on Memorial Day.

    Advice: Headley kicked off the rout with a two-run homer in the top of the first inning, then Brian McCann and Brett Gardner both followed with three-run shots in what became an eight-run opening frame. Stephen Drew added another three-run homer in the bottom of the second, finally driving Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie from the game. Headley also had an infield single and an RBI double. He's batting .255/.309/.416 with six home runs and 21 RBI in 44 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bautista (shoulder) hopes for OF in one week
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) is hoping to be available to play the outfield in one week.

    Advice: The Blue Jays will be in Washington that night and will not have the designated hitter spot available. Bautista sat out a second straight game Monday after receiving a cortisone shot in his shoulder, but he could feel well enough to be back in there at DH on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Steve Pearce homers to lead Orioles
    Steve Pearce hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh to help the Orioles beat the Astros 4-3 on Monday.

    Advice: Pearce has just nine hits this month, but at least three of them have been homers, and since one was a grand slam, he has driven in 10 runs. There's still plenty of room for him to reemerge as a full-time player for the Orioles if he can get hot. Really, though, he's struggled just to tread water all season. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Bautista (shoulder) is out again Monday
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) is out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup again on Monday.

    Advice: Bautista also sat out Sunday after getting a cortisone injection in his ailing right shoulder. He's been bothered by shoulder discomfort for over a month, but the Blue Jays are expected to keep the slugger active and continue using him as their primary designated hitter. Edwin Encarnacion is at DH on Monday against the White Sox and Justin Smoak is at first base. Rotoworld.com

  • Jon Singleton crushes league-leading 14th HR
    Astros first base prospect Jon Singleton blasted his 14th home run Sunday in a win for Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Singleton owns a .379 average over his last nine games. He's plated 12 runs over that span, stretching his season RBI total to 47. The 23-year-old now leads the Pacific Coast League in homers, RBI, walks (29) and runs scored (35). He's second in total bases (102), OPS (1.045) and slugging (.646). The Astros have Chris Carter at first base and Evan Gattis at DH, so it appears Singleton will continue to see regular at-bats at Fresno until a spot opens up for him. Rotoworld.com

  • Abreu smacks solo homer in loss to Twins
    Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Abreu hit his solo tater off of Kyle Gibson in the fourth inning. It would be the only run that the White Sox managed to score in the game. The dinger was Abreu's seventh and pushed his RBI total to 23. While he's not hitting at the monstrous level that he was in 2014, he's still posting a rock-solid .282/.349/.474 slash-line.

  • Cabrera rips 11th homer as Tigers fall to HOU

    Advice: Cabrera hit a solo home run in the ninth inning, trying to help the Tigers overcome a three-run deficit, but it wasn't enough. As expected, the two-time AL MVP has done nothing but hit this season, carrying a .344/.446/.613 triple-slash line with 11 home runs and 32 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Jose Bautista is not in Sunday's lineup after being given a cortisone shot for his ailing right shoulder.

  • Davis goes hit-less in six at-bats vs Marlins
    Chris Davis went 0-for-6 with four strikeouts in Saturday's 13-inning loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Giving six consecutive at-bats to Chris Davis is just asking for multiple strikeouts. Unfortunately for the Orioles, Davis didn't counteract the four strikeouts with any offensive pyrotechnics. The hit-less game dropped his season batting line to .210/.290/.427. He does have eight home runs and 21 driven in, but he doesn't offer much beyond the power. Rotoworld.com

  • Braves inquired on catcher Jonathan Lucroy
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Braves inquired on Jonathan Lucroy but were told he was not available.

    Advice: The Brewers are going to be sellers prior to the trade deadline, but one guy they appear intent on keeping is Lucroy, who is under team control cheaply through 2017. Heyman adds that the Braves have been "disappointed" by the play of Christian Bethancourt, who is batting just .190/.215/.286 and hasn't been as good as expected defensively. Rotoworld.com

  • Pearce wallops grand slam off Happ in first
    Steven Pearce hit a grand slam in the first inning of Thursday's 5-4 win over Mariners.

    Advice: Pearce hit the four-bagger off of J.A. Happ with two outs in the first inning. It was Pearce's fourth homer of the season and pushed his RBI count to 15. While he does have a little sneaky pop in his bat, it's not enough to overcome a .198/.275/.341 batting line. Continue to disregard him for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com

  • Morneau (head) won't be activated on Friday
    Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Thursday that Justin Morneau will not be activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday when first eligible.

    Advice: Morneau was placed on the 7-day DL on May 16 after suffering a cervical strain (and some concussion symptoms) on a diving play. Weiss told reporters that the veteran first baseman needs "at least a few more days." Morneau has a littered history with concussions, so the Rockies will play it safe. Rotoworld.com

    Buster Posey went 3-for-4 with a double, homer, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 4-0 triumph versus the rival Dodgers.

    Advice: Posey entered the night as a strong play in daily leagues against the left-hander Brett Anderson, and he paid off for those investing handsomely. Interestingly, the homer came against right-hander Yimi Garcia, not Anderson. Posey, on an eight-game hitting streak, is slashing .308/.379/.476. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Posey broke a scoreless tie in the third inning with an RBI single to left-center off of Carlos Frias. As the Dodgers were shut out, it turned out to be the deciding hit. The catcher is now on a seven-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 14 of 16 games so far this month. Posey is batting .295/.369/.439 with six home runs and 19 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com

    Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in Monday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: The longball -- which came in the seventh inning off of Cesar Ramos -- was just Bautista's second in his last 19 games. The slugger now has seven dingers on the season and has upped his average to a season-high .235. Bautista remains limited to designated hitter duties due to his ailing shoulder. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Singleton now has an incredible 12 homers and 40 RBI in 36 games this season. Ten of those RBI came in a 17-6 win over Albuquerque last Wednesday. He's fifth in the Pacific Coast League in OPS (.983) and sixth in slugging percentage (.602). The 23-year-old struggled in 95 games for Houston last season (.168 average in 310 at-bats), but he's bound to get another shot if he keeps this up. Rotoworld.com

    Jose Bautista (shoulder) played catch at 40 feet in an indoor batting cage Monday morning.

    Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, plating the Tigers lone run in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Cabrera also drew a walk in the contest. He has been on an absolute tear at the plate in recent weeks and now sports a .333/.436/.601 with 10 homers and 30 RBI. He remains arguably the best right-handed hitter in the game and an offensive force in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Morneau experienced some lightheadedness after jarring his neck on a dive Wednesday. He has been diagnosed with a cervical strain and mild concussion symptoms.

    Advice: It was the 399th home run of his career. Strangely, it was also his first home run in a night game this season. Cabrera has back-to-back three-hit games and owns a healthy .338/.442/.592 battling line on the year to go along with nine home runs and 28 RBI.

He currently has more walks (16) than strikeouts (13). The Giants are set to get Hunter Pence back from the disabled list on Saturday, which should only help Posey. Rotoworld.com
