  • Prado drives in lone run in 13-inning win
    Martin Prado's RBI single with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 13th inning made 1-0 winners out of the Marlins in Saturday's contest against the Orioles.

    Advice: Had Prado not singled, it's possible that this game simply would have sunk into a tear in the fabric of space-time, never to end. Prado made sure the universe remained intact. After Giancarlo Stanton drew an intentional walk to load the bases, Prado stepped up against T.J. McFarland and singled to end the game before any position players had to pitch. The hit extended Prado's hitting streak to six games and he's now slashing .273/.310/.341.

  • Aybar doubles and scores twice in loss to BOS
    Eric Aybar went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Aybar's double in the eighth inning was his seventh of the season. A hot May has helped boost Aybar's numbers and he's now hitting .274/.320/.335 with a homer, 14 RBI and 19 runs scored.

  • Crawford triples with 3 RBI on rainy night
    Brandon Crawford went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a two-run triple in Saturday's 10-8 win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Crawford hit a run-scoring single off Jordan Lyles in the fourth inning. He didn't have to wait long to put the hurt on the Rockies a second time, as he tripled in two runs an inning later. The shortstop has been brilliant thus far, hitting .303/.385/.514 with six homers, 31 RBI and 21 runs scored. As the sample size rises, all of his numbers are tracking toward career bests.

  • Peterson's walkoff RBI guides Braves over MIL
    Jace Peterson hit a walkoff RBI single Saturday in the Braves' 3-2 extra-innings win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Peterson smacked a leadoff single in the bottom of the first inning but was caught trying to steal second base. His next hit of the game -- five at-bats later -- was a single to left-center field that scored Alberto Callaspo from third base in the bottom of the 11th inning. Peterson, 25, is batting .264/.336/.318 with four steals and 14 runs in 39 games this season.

  • Jose Iglesias leaves early with bruised knee
    Jose Iglesias is day-to-day after leaving Saturday's game with a left knee contusion.

    Advice: He banged knees with Chris Carter on an infield single back in the third inning. Hernan Perez came in to pinch-run for Iglesias after he singled again in the fifth. Perez and Andrew Romine are candidates to fill in at shortstop if Iglesias misses time.
    Yesterday, 2:47 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia batting leadoff for Sox
    Dustin Pedroia will bat leadoff Saturday against the Angels.

    Advice: Pedroia hasn't batted leadoff since last season. His lifetime average in the leadoff spot is .264, much lower than his .303 clip hitting elsewhere. Mookie Betts typically hits leadoff for the Sox, but he's getting the day off.
    Yesterday, 1:47 pm
  • Mookie Betts not in Red Sox lineup Saturday
    Mookie Betts is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Rusney Castillo is getting the start in center field, with Shane Victorino back in there in right field against opposing southpaw C.J. Wilson. Betts has fallen on hard times after a strong start to the season and is hitting just .232/.290/.387 with five homers and 22 RBI in 41 games on the year.
    Yesterday, 12:47 pm
  • Rendon to play in simulated games next week
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) took full batting practice for the first time on Saturday and has been cleared to begin playing in simulated games next week.

    Advice: He'll play in a few simulated games in Viera early in the week before heading out on a minor league rehab assignment. At this stage, barring any setbacks, he should be cleared to rejoin the Nationals in early June.

  • Brett Lawrie not in Athletics lineup Saturday
    Brett Lawrie is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Max Muncy is getting the call at the hot corner and batting fifth in the A's lineup against opposing right-hander Nathan Karns. Lawrie should be back in there for Sunday's series finale. The 25-year-old is hitting .279/.310/.364 with two homers and 16 RBI in 43 games.
    Yesterday, 8:58 am
  • Brad Miller not in Mariners lineup Saturday
    Brad Miller is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against opposing southpaw Mark Buehrle, with Chris Taylor starting at shortstop and hitting ninth for the M's. Look for Miller to be back in there for Sunday's series finale.

  • X-rays come back negative for Ramirez
    X-rays on the hand of Hanley Ramirez came back negative late Friday.

    Advice: He was hit by a pitch during Friday's loss to the Angels and was removed from the game. He appears to have avoided any serious injury and should be considered day-to-day.
    Yesterday, 5:09 am
  • Nick Ahmed comes up big in 13-inning win
    Nick Ahmed homered and delivered a game-winning single in the 13th as the Diamondbacks edged the Cubs 5-4 on Friday.

    Advice: Nick Ahmed? The homer was his first of 2015 and second in 174 major league at-bats. He raised his average from .l94 to .212 with his first three-hit game of the year. His defense has been terrific, which is why he won the job in the first place. Anything he offers with the bat is a bonus as far as the Diamondbacks are concerned.

  • Matt Duffy hits second homer
    Matt Duffy hit his second homer as part of a 3-for-5 night against the Rockies on Friday.

    Advice: Duffy has established himself as the Giants' best option at third base, for better or worse. He's not going to be much of an asset offensively, but he's certainly outplayed Casey McGehee to date.

  • D.J. LeMahieu hits second homer
    D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: LeMahieu is bating .326, but between his placement at the bottom of the Rockies order and his poor baserunning, he's scored just 13 runs. Fortunately, he's driven in 20, which has resulted in some surprising early-season fantasy value.
    Friday, 10:32 pm
  • Dee Gordon steals four bases vs. O's
    Dee Gordon stole four bases Friday against the Orioles.

    Advice: It tied his career-high and tied the Marlins record, which was set by Luis Castillo back in 2000. Gordon finished the night 2-for-5 with a run scored and is batting .386 with 16 steals through 40 games.
    Friday, 9:33 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez leaves with sore left hand
    Hanley Ramirez was removed from Friday's game against the Angels due to soreness in his left hand.

    Advice: Ramirez was drilled by a pitch there earlier in the ballgame. The fact that the score was 11-3 at the time may have also played a role in his early departure. He should be considered day-to-day.
    Friday, 6:34 pm
  • Prado racks up three hits in loss to Snakes
    Martin Prado went 3-for-5 with an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: All three of Prado's hits were singles. In fact, of the Marlins' 12 hits as a team, only one, a J.T. Realmuto triple, went for extra-bases. The water torture netted the team six runs, which wasn't quite enough to come up on the right side of a 7-6 final score. Prado himself has managed just eight extra-base hits all season (six doubles, two home runs), which would explain the lackluster slugging in his .277/.313/.349 slash.

  • Crawford not in Giants' lineup on Thursday
    Brandon Crawford is not in the Giants' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He'll take a seat with the Dodgers throwing ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Joaquin Arias is at shortstop.
    Thursday, 10:30 am
  • Iglesias not in Tigers' lineup on Thursday
    Jose Iglesias is not in the Tigers' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for Iglesias, who has battled some groin issues. Andrew Romine is at shortstop as the Tigers kick off a four-game set with the Astros.
    Thursday, 6:50 am
  • Crawford collects 3 hits, has 9 RBI in last 5
    Brandon Crawford finished 3-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's 4-0 win against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Crawford has nine RBI over his past five games, though note that six came in one. Any way you slice it, it's been a sizzling start to what is starting to look like the early making of a breakout year. Crawford is slashing .298/.387/.511 and is on pace for 24 homers and 104 RBI.
    Wednesday, 10:11 pm
  • Rendon hit and took grounders on Wednesday
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) hit in a cage and took some grounders with the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rendon was placed on the disabled list before Opening Day with a sprained MCL in his left knee and he suffered a strained oblique in early May while rehabbing that knee injury. The Nationals will continue to take it slowly with the 24-year-old third baseman. He's eventually going to need a minor league rehab assignment and remains highly doubtful to debut before the end of May.

  • Hanley Ramirez (leg) back in Red Sox' lineup
    Hanley Ramirez (leg) is back in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Hanley had to leave Tuesday's contest after banging his left leg on a slide, but he'll gut it out in this one. Ramirez hasn't hit with the same authority since returning from a shoulder injury that he was earlier in the season.
    Wednesday, 12:09 pm
  • HanRam doubles twice among three hits Tuesday
    Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Ramirez oddly had just one double on the year coming into the game. He had to make an early exit after jamming his left leg, but it's considered a minor injury. The shortstop is batting .276/.322/.522 overall this season.
    Tuesday, 7:51 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez exits game with leg injury
    Hanley Ramirez left Tuesday's game against the Rangers after jamming his left leg on late.

    Advice: It sounds like he was removed for precautionary reasons. Consider Ramirez day-to-day for the time being. He went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored before exiting Tuesday.
    Tuesday, 7:22 pm
  • Erick Aybar batting leadoff on Monday
    Erick Aybar is batting leadoff for the Angels on Monday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Kole Calhoun will bat cleanup against Todd Redmond. Aybar has been scorching-hot over the last 10 days and the Angels will try to take advantage. He had a terrible April.
    Monday, 7:28 am
  • Peterson gets on base 3 times with 2 RBI
    Jace Peterson went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a two-run single in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Peterson was once again a factor in the Braves' offense a day after hitting a grand slam. He singled in two runs and later scored as part of the Braves' five-run second inning. He's now batting .284/.350/.349 with one home run and 15 RBI.
    May 17, 12:36 pm
  • D.J. LeMahieu sitting out on Sunday
    D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest. Rafael Ynoa is at second base Sunday in LeMahieu's place.
    May 17, 10:44 am
  • Brad Miller homers twice in loss to Red Sox
    Brad Miller slugged two solo home runs Saturday in the Mariners' loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Miller hit both of his big flies off Red Sox starter Rick Porcello, but that represented that entirety of Seattle's offensive output for the night. Miller was at DH and batting second. He seems to have found new life since being moved into a roving utility role.
    May 16, 9:07 pm
  • Crawford hits grand slam and racks up 6 RBI
    Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and six RBI in Saturday's 11-2 demolition of the Reds.

    Advice: Crawford launched his big slam off of Mike Leake in fifth inning. He also had an RBI single and an RBI double in the contest, missing just a run-scoring triple to hit for the vaunted RBI cycle. With the huge game, Crawford now has six home runs and 24 RBI on the season. He's been extremely productive for his position and is currently hitting .277/.372/.504.
    May 16, 7:39 pm
  • Jace Peterson blasts grand slam in victory
    Jace Peterson's grand slam powered the Braves to a 5-3 victory over the Marlins on Saturday.

    Advice: The second inning blast was his first of the season. Peterson batted out of the leadoff slot in the Braves' lineup Saturday and could continue doing so if he keeps producing. He's a good value play in daily games.
    May 16, 2:38 pm
  • Gordon has three hits Friday vs. Braves
    Dee Gordon went 3-for-5 with a run scored Friday against the Braves.

    Advice: Gordon has seven hits over the past two games, pulling his batting average up from .412 to .433 in the process. That's hard to do. He already has 61 hits on the year. This was the 11th time this season that he has notched at least three hits in a game.
    May 15, 8:08 pm
  • Ramirez collects 4 hits in win over Seattle
    Hanley Ramirez went 4-for-5 with a double in Thursday's win against the Mariners.

    Advice: Han-Ram has gone 6-for-9 in the past 48 hours, raising his batting average from .252 to .284. He's enjoying his first campaign in Boston, slashing .284/.336/.552. Ramirez's 10 homers rank third in the American League, and that slugging percentage checks in at No. 10.
    May 14, 10:11 pm
  • Rendon (knee) to resume baseball activities
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) reported to the Nationals' spring training complex in Viera on Thursday where he'll begin baseball activities.

    Advice: They'll attempt with a slower progression for him this time around, beginning with fielding light ground balls. Aside from his left MCL sprain, he has also been battling a left oblique strain which shut down his recovery early in May. It's unlikely that he returns to the Nationals lineup before the end of May.

  • SS Aybar turning things around, has 3 hits
    Erick Aybar went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI as the Angels bested the Rockies 2-1 in 11 innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Just how rough has Aybar's start been? Consider that this is the first time we've blurbed about him since March 6. There are real signs of progress, however. Aybar slashed a horrifying .222/.284/.247 in April and went hitless in his first two games of May, but has since hit safely in nine of 10, five of which were of the multi-hit variety. Usually slotted fifth or sixth in the lineup, Aybar will drive in more runs than the average shortstop so long as balls are falling in.
