    The Blue Jays are hoping that Devon Travis (shoulder) will be ready to begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

    Advice: Travis took some grounders on Wednesday and his left shoulder felt fine. The Jays think he'll be ready for activation from the disabled list next Monday, but they'll just have to wait and see how he recovers over the next few days. Rotoworld.com

  • Werth still having trouble rotating wrist
    Jayson Werth is still having trouble rotating his ailing left wrist.

    Advice: Therefore, he has obviously yet to be cleared to resume swinging a bat and it's unclear when that might happen. "They’re treating him aggressively like they have been," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "He’s got fairly good grip strength, but the rotation of it and turning that over is not good." X-rays and an MRI on Werth's wrist came back clean, but he has a history of injuries with the wrist so the Nats will be cautious. It doesn't sound like he'll be returning anytime soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Arcia (hip) will remain on rehab through week
    Oswaldo Arcia (hip) will remain on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester through at least the end of the week.

    Advice: Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony has indicated previously that Arcia will have to hit his way back on the active roster, so it would behoove him for his bat to get hot. Arcia was hitless in his first rehab game Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Joyce goes 0-for-3, average falls to .172
    Matt Joyce went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's 10-inning loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Joyce, despite getting almost all of his playing time this season against right-handed pitching, has struggled through the first two months. Tuesday's outing moves his triple-slash line down to .172/.246/.258. His struggles may prompt the Angels to acquire an outfielder leading up to the trade deadline in July. Rotoworld.com

  • Kemp's 10th inning double sends Padres to win
    Matt Kemp hit a bases-clearing double in the 10th inning to break a scoreless tie and send the Padres to a victory against the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kemp made reliever Joe Smith pay for a single and two walks by clearing the bases with a double to left field. He scored not long after and finished the night 1-for-5. It marks his first multi-RBI game since April 29 as he has hit the skids offensively. Kemp is hitting .255/.291/.348 with only one home run and 25 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Gose's speed sets Tigers up to beat the A's
    Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and scored the only run as the Tigers eked out a victory against the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gose led off the game with a single, then stole second and advanced to third base on catcher Josh Phegley's throwing error. He promptly scored on a Rajai Davis sacrifice fly. Gose, on a six-game hitting streak, has quietly been a force at the top of the Tigers' lineup, batting .338/.374/.475 with eight stolen bases, 20 runs scored, and 11 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Napoli has RBI single in loss against Twins
    Mike Napoli had an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Napoli's RBI single in the second inning was the only run the Red Sox could push across against Twins starter Mike Pelfrey. The run batted in was Napoli's 22nd on the season and his 11th in his last eight games. He's raised his average from .162 to .214 in that stretch, batting .429 (12-for-28) in those eight games.

    Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Markakis' three-hit night squandered in loss
    Nick Markakis went 3-for-4 with a double, but the Braves were shut out in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: The double was the outfielder's ninth of the season. He's up to 52 hits on the season, but 43 of them have been singles. Markakis has reached double-digits in home runs in nine previous seasons but he'll have to catch fire at some point to get there by season's end. The 31-year-old is hitting an otherwise productive .311/.398/.365. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Fielder hits three-run homer in Rangers' win
    Prince Fielder stayed red hot Tuesday, finishing 3-for-5 with a three-run homer as the Rangers edged the Indians 4-3.

    Advice: Fielder is in the midst of an otherworldly stretch, as he's now had five straight multi-hit games -- including four consecutive games with three hits -- and collected five home runs, 15 RBI and nine runs scored in that span. Fielder leads the league in batting average (.371) and RBI (38), and he's among the league leaders in a number of other categories. It's been quite a comeback year for the 31-year-old. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • X-rays on Carlos Santana's wrist are clean
    X-rays on Carlos Santana's left wrist came back negative.

    Advice: Santana was hit on the wrist by a pitch in the ninth inning of Tuesday's game. He stayed in the contest and should be fine, but the Indians will check on him Wednesday to see how sore he is. With a day game, there's a good chance Santana could be rested. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Phillips out Tuesday due to turf toe
    Brandon Phillips is out of the Reds' lineup Tuesday after aggravating his turf toe.

    Advice: It's an issue that has been nagging the veteran second baseman for a couple of weeks, and Phillips might now be looking at an extended absence. Kristopher Negron will fill in at second on Tuesday night against the Rockies. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:42 pm
  • Phillips not in Tuesday's lineup
    Brandon Phillips is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.

    Advice: Kris Negron will fill in at second base. Meanwhile, Zack Cozart will slide into the leadoff spot. Phillips recently missed a couple of games with turf toe and the Reds should pass along an update soon if it's bothering him again. Rotoworld.com

  • Alvarez homers again as Pirates top Marlins
    Pedro Alvarez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's victory against the Marlins.

    Advice: Alvarez provided insurance with a sixth-inning solo homer off of David Phelps, extending the Pirates' lead to 4-2. He has homered in back-to-back starts and has four in his last eight games, giving him nine total on the season along with 21 RBI and a .241/.327/.496 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Cervelli powers Pirates to win with a homer
    Francisco Cervelli went 2-for-2 with a walk and a three-run home run as the Pirates topped the Marlins on Monday.

    Advice: Cervelli gave the Pirates a 3-1 lead in the second inning with a three-run blast off of David Phelps. Not exactly known for his power, that was Cervelli's first homer of the season. The catcher is batting a solid .316/.381/.404 with 13 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:38 pm
  • Carlos Santana homers, scores twice
    Carlos Santana belted a solo homer and scored a pair of runs in Monday's loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Santana got the Indians on the board in the first inning with a solo blast in what turned out to be an offensive slugfest. He also drew a pair of walks on the day. Santana's numbers have been a tad disappointing to this point, but he still has a .367 on-base percentage and is on pace for 18 homers and 88 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Fielder goes 3-for-5 with two RBI in victory
    Prince Fielder had another nice night at the dish in Sunday's victory over the Yankees, going 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI.

    Advice: He is absolutely killing it at the plate lately, raising his slash line to .358/.412/.551 with Sunday's three-hit attack. Fielder now has 32 RBI to go along with his eight home runs. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:39 pm
  • Napoli stays hot with homer and four RBI
    Mike Napoli hit a two-run homer and a two-run double to finish 2-for-3 with four RBI in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Angels.

    Advice: Napoli had been as cold as the dark side of the moon for most of the season, but over the last two games he has been as hot as a moon that has flown out of orbit and just hit the sun. After a solo homer on Friday and two homers on Saturday, Napoli followed up with another huge game. He smashed a two-run homer off of Hector Santiago in the second inning, then hit a deep double to score two in the eighth to finish with four RBI and two runs scored. After slugging under .300 a week ago, he's dragged his slash-line up to .203/.304/.420 and has now hit eight home runs and driven in 21. Get him in your lineups immediately if you were waiting.

  • Jayson Werth's left wrist still swollen
    Jayson Werth's left wrist remains too swollen to allow him to resume baseball activities.

    Advice: "They’re treating him aggressively," Nationals Manager Matt Williams said. "It’s multiple rounds of treatment every day. The problem is if the swelling gets in the joint, then it can be really stiff and if you start going at it hard, it just exacerbates the problem. We gotta calm it down first before we can get back at it." Werth is eligible for activation from the disabled list in a week, but it's looking unlikely that he'll be ready at that time. A clearer timetable for his return obviously won't be known until he's given the green light to resume swinging a bat. Rotoworld.com

  • Arcia (hip) has to hit his way back on club
    Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony indicated Saturday that Oswaldo Arcia's (hip) rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester might not be brief.

    Advice: Arcia, who has missed 17 games with a right hip flexor strain, will begin the assignment with Rochester on Sunday. "He needs to go down and show he’s ready to come up and help the club," Antony said. "We’ve gotten away from go down, get a couple of at-bats and come back up. All of a sudden the guy is 0-for-12 and not helping the team. A, we need to know that he’s healthy, and B, he needs to look like he’s ready to help us." Arcia was starting to show signs of turning it around at the plate before the injury. Ultimately, he should be back with the Twins pretty soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Napoli cracks two homers in win over Angels
    Mike Napoli hit two long homers and finished 2-for-3 with three RBI and a walk in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Angels.

    Advice: Napoli absolutely owned Angels starter C.J. Wilson on Saturday, smacking a laser of a solo homer in the second inning, then uncorking a two-run moonshot in the sixth that completely cleared the Green Monster. The Red Sox are dying for some kind of offensive production and it would be a welcome sign if Napoli could find a groove. He's hitting a disappointing .193/.292/.385 with seven homers, 16 RBI and 17 runs scored over 135 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Prince Fielder homers again in rout of Yanks

His two-run blast came off Branden Pinder in the seventh inning, increasing the Rangers lead to 15-1 at the time. He has been on fire at the dish in recent weeks and is now slashing a monster .351/.407/.544 with eight long balls and 30 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Fielder homers twice as Rangers top Yankees
    Prince Fielder blasted a pair of home runs and drove home four runs on Friday as the Rangers outlasted the Yankees 10-9 in a wild game in New York.

    Advice: The Rangers broke the game open by scoring seven runs in the third inning, with Fielder's three-run blast off starter Michael Pineda serving as the big blow. He tacked on a solo shot off Chasen Shreve in the seventh inning which would end up looming large. He's having a terrific season in the middle of the Rangers lineup, batting .341/.397/.521 with seven homers and 27 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:09 pm
  • Moss homers, knocks in three vs. Reds
    Brandon Moss went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, and a walk in a win over the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: Moss blasted a solo homer in the third inning and added a two-run double one inning later. The 31-year-old has three home runs and 13 RBI through 18 games this month, but he continues to have issues making contact. He's batting just .233 through 33 games this season while striking out 27 percent of the time. Rotoworld.com

  • Arcia (hip) beginning rehab assignment Sunday
    Oswaldo Arcia (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.

    Advice: He shouldn't need more than a few games before being activated. Arcia is still feeling some discomfort in his right hip when he throws, so he's likely slated for designated hitter duty initially upon his activation from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis (shoulder) expected back when eligible
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on June 1 when first eligible.

    Advice: Travis was placed on the DL on Thursday after battling a left shoulder injury for a few days. It's a minor ailment, though, as he's been given a cortisone shot and should resume full workouts before long. The rookie had been scuffling at the dish of late before the DL move, batting just .162/.205/.243 over his previous 10 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays place Devon Travis (shoulder) on DL
    Blue Jays placed INF Devon Travis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 17, with left shoulder inflammation.

    Advice: The Blue Jays had been playing it day-by-day with Travis who is dealing with a sore shoulder where he was hit by a line drive and then agitated with a swing during Saturday's game. His stay on the disabled list should be minimal, so expect him to rejoin the Jays lineup in early June. Rotoworld.com

  • Jays expect Travis to avoid disabled list
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Thursday that the team still expects Devon Travis (shoulder) to avoid the disabled list.

    Advice: Travis is out of the lineup for the fifth straight game Thursday due to soreness in his left shoulder/collarbone. The Blue Jays could always backdate him on the disabled list as long as they keep him out of the lineup, but they don't think it will be necessary. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

    Thursday, 6:09 am
  • Brandon Phillips goes 3-for-5, doubles
    Brandon Phillips went 3-for-5 with an RBI double against the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: That's because he was batting second, and everyone the Reds have had bat second this year has experienced incredible success, for some reason. Of course, since no one else hits besides the No. 2 hitter, the Reds scored just that one run tonight. Phillips is batting .314. Incredibly, he's stolen five bases this month after stealing none in April, two in 121 games last year and five in 151 games in 2013. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Napoli hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning before delivering an RBI single in the fifth. The occasional long ball has been about all Napoli has been good for this year -- he's hitting just .174/.275/.314 through 34 games. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Arcia resumed hitting in a batting cage last Friday and evidently things have progressed nicely since then.

  • Jayson Werth (wrist) could have MRI Monday
    Jayson Werth (wrist) could undergo an MRI on Monday.
