  • Wong's walkoff HR leads Cardinals to sweep
    Kolten Wong cranked a walkoff solo home run in the bottom of the 14th inning as the Cardinals defeated the visiting Pirates 3-2 on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Wong didn't start the game, but he finished 3-for-4 after entering as part of a double-switch in the top of the eighth inning. And his heroic blast to right field in the 14th secured a three-game sweep for the Cardinals, who have the best record in baseball at 18-6. Wong, 24, is batting .294/.340/.435 with two home runs and two stolen bases in 24 games this season.

  • Dozier triples on his way to four-hit game
    Brian Dozier tripled and singled three times against the White Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: Dozier finished the game 4-for-5 with an RBI and run scored. The triple was his first of the 2015 campaign. It's been a bit of a slow start for the second baseman, who posted a 20/20 season last year, but we'll see if this game gets him going. Overall, he's hitting .240/.318/.385 with two home runs, 11 RBI, 18 runs scored and two steals.

  • Kipnis homers in 4-hit effort versus the Jays
    Jason Kipnis recorded four hits -- including a double and a home run -- in five at-bats to help the Indians hold off the Blue Jays on Sunday.

    Advice: Kipnis knocked in a pair of runs and scored three runs as well, contributing to the Indians' 10-run afternoon. His home run, the third of the season, broke a scoreless tie in the third inning. Kipnis now has three consecutive multi-hit games and has homered in three out of his last five games. The surge has brought his triple-slash line up to .273/.327/.404.

  • Travis swats a grand slam in loss to Indians
    Devon Travis blasted a grand slam, but it wasn't enough for the Blue Jays as they fell to the Indians on Sunday.

    Advice: Travis, who finished 1-for-5, put the exclamation mark on the Jays' six-run fourth inning with a grand slam off of Trevor Bauer, temporarily putting his team on top 6-2. The rookie second baseman has done nothing but hit, as he's the proud owner of a .318/.394/.625 triple-slash line with seven home runs and 23 RBI.
    Yesterday, 1:28 pm
  • Carlos Sanchez drives in seven runs Saturday
    White Sox prospect Carlos Sanchez has gone 9-for-9 over his last two games for Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Saturday's outing included two homers and seven RBI. Sanchez has hit safely in 17 of 19 games this season and reached base in all but one. Sanchez still swings and misses too much (20 Ks in 86 at-bats this year), but other than that, it's hard to find fault with anything he's done this season. If Sanchez keeps this up, it's going to be hard for the White Sox to keep him in Triple-A.

    Ryan Flaherty (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Monday.

    Advice: He's on track to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Friday. Flaherty is hitting .300/.400/.600 with a couple homers over nine games this season.

  • Kolten Wong sitting out on Sunday
    Kolten Wong is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Wong suffered a minor wrist injury on Saturday, but he stayed the game so this just looks like a day off. Pete Kozma is at second base Sunday in his place.
    Yesterday, 8:36 am
  • Luis Valbuena not in Sunday's lineup
    Luis Valbuena is not in the Astros' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It looks like he's just getting a day off. Jonathan Villar is at third base Sunday in Valbuena's place.
    Yesterday, 8:18 am
  • Neil Walker absent from lineup Sunday
    Neil Walker is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears that he's just getting a breather. Josh Harrison is at second base in Walker's place Sunday, with Jung Ho Kang covering third.
    Yesterday, 8:16 am
  • Asdrubal Cabrera getting a day of rest
    Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to simply be a day of rest. Tim Beckham is handling shortstop in Cabrera's place.
    Yesterday, 7:41 am
  • Dee Gordon getting day off Sunday
    Dee Gordon is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to simply be a day of rest. Donovan Solano is filling in for Gordon at second base on Sunday.
    Yesterday, 7:39 am
  • Martin Prado sitting out on Sunday
    Martin Prado is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting a day off even after a big showing Saturday that included a homer and four RBI. Reid Brignac is filling in at third base in Prado's place.
    Yesterday, 7:37 am
  • Wilmer Flores sitting out again Sunday
    Wilmer Flores is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's the second straight day he's been on the bench in favor of Ruben Tejada. Flores is clearly overmatched defensively at shortstop, and it's possible we could start seeing Tejada more and more at the position.
    Yesterday, 7:34 am
  • Franklin (oblique) set for rehab assignment
    Nick Franklin (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment on Monday.

    Advice: The Rays haven't decided which affiliate he'll be assigned to yet, and it's also unclear how many rehab games Franklin is expected to require. The infielder figures to be tracking towards a mid-May return and is expected to take over at second base even though Logan Forsythe and Tim Beckham have been pretty productive.

  • Turner homers, scores three runs vs. D'Backs
    Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a home run Saturday in the Dodgers' 6-4 defeat of the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Turner slugged a solo home run in the first inning off Diamondbacks starter Jeremy Hellickson. He also drew a walk and scored a run in the third inning and then doubled and scored in the seventh inning, finishing the game with a total of three runs. Turner is batting .300 with a .958 OPS in 18 games this season and should continue to see semi-regular playing time at third base. Juan Uribe was out of the lineup Saturday for the second straight game.

  • Altuve flexes muscles with three-run homer
    Jose Altuve hit a three-run homer off of Taijuan Walker in Saturday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: The home run was Altuve's third of the season. You don't see that too often with the star second baseman, who hit just seven last season, but he has shown that he's got a bit of pop in the bat. Altuve finished the contest 1-for-4, snapping his streak of nine straight multi-hit games. Had he finished with one more hit, he would have set the franchise record. As is, the homer extended his hitting streak to 11 games in-a-row. He's now slashing a sizzling .371/.412/.524.
    Saturday, 9:31 pm
  • Flaherty on track to begin rehab assignment
    Ryan Flaherty tested his injured groin Saturday by running the bases.

    Advice: Flaherty is hoping to begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on Monday. He could be joined there by J.J. Hardy (shoulder), who also worked out on Saturday. Flaherty is eligible to come off the disabled list Friday when the Orioles visit the Yankees. Reynaldo Navarro will likely be the odd man out when Flaherty returns to the infield.

  • Prado drives in four as Marlins beat Phillies
    Martin Prado finished 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in the Marlins' 7-0 win over the Phillies on Saturday.

    Advice: Prado reached on an error in the first inning, slugged a three-run shot in the second inning, drew a walk in the fourth inning, and then cranked an RBI double in the sixth. He has a decent .733 OPS with two home runs, 14 RBI, and 11 runs scored in 24 games this season. If he keeps hitting near the top of the Marlins' batting order -- he hit second on Saturday -- the 31-year-old third baseman should continue to provide a good amount of fantasy value.
    Saturday, 4:05 pm
  • Altuve notches ninth straight multi-hit game
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-3 with a run scored Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Another day, another multi-hit game. That makes nine straight, which ties a club record. Altuve is batting .468 during his 10-game hitting streak and .376 for the year.
    Friday, 9:02 pm
  • Kipnis homers Friday against Blue Jays
    Jason Kipnis went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a walk against the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Advice: After failing to homer in 67 straight games dating back to last July, Kipnis has now gone deep in two out of the last three games. That has to feel good for those fantasy owners who were banking on a bounceback. Kipnis batted leadoff Friday for the sixth straight game.
    Friday, 7:28 pm
  • Ryan Flaherty (groin) nears rehab assignment
    Ryan Flaherty (groin) could begin a rehab assignment on Monday.

    Advice: Flaherty has been taking batting practice the last couple days. He's tracking towards a return sometime next week.
    Friday, 1:44 pm
    15-Day DL
  • Devon Travis not in there on Friday
    Devon Travis is not in the Blue Jays' lineup on Friday.

    Advice: It appears to be a routine day of rest. Ryan Goins is at second base Friday in Travis' place, while Josh Donaldson is getting his first ever start in the leadoff spot.
    Friday, 1:06 pm
  • Franklin (oblique) could begin rehab Monday
    Nick Franklin (oblique) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as Monday.

    Advice: Franklin appears to have finally turned a corner with his strained left oblique. It's not clear how many rehab games he'll require, but he would seem to be at least a couple weeks away from being activated.

  • Jose Altuve delivers game-winner
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with a stolen base and a game-winning single in the bottom of the 10th as the Astros edged the Mariners 3-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: The game-ender would have been his second double of the game under other circumstances. After a modest start, he's racked up eight straight multihit games, raising his average all of the way to .367. He's also swiped nine bases, putting him a tad above last year's pace (56 steals in 158 games).
    Thursday, 8:50 pm
  • Brian Dozier homers, knocks in four
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer and four RBI as the Twins smoked the White Sox 12-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: Dozier is hitting .250 with two homers, two doubles, seven RBI and four walks in six games since moving up to the leadoff spot. It's where he belongs, at least either there or in the two hole.
    Thursday, 8:24 pm
  • Jason Kipnis hits three-run homer
    Jason Kipnis had a three-run homer, an RBI groundout and a walk Wednesday versus the Royals.

    Advice: Finally some power from Kipnis. Not only was it his first homer, but he had just two extra-base hits in 78 at-bats entering the night. With four RBI, he doubled his season total.
    Wednesday, 7:41 pm
  • Ryan Flaherty (groin) takes batting practice
    Ryan Flaherty (groin) took batting practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Everything went well. Flaherty isn't sure when he'll begin a rehab assignment, but he has a shot to be activated when first eligible.

  • Altuve's 4-hit night leads Astros past Padres
    Jose Altuve went 4-for-6 with two doubles and a stolen base to help the Astros run roughshod over the Padres on Tuesday.

    Advice: Altuve is on a seven-game hitting streak, the most recent six of which have been of the multi-hit variety. He's picked up right where he left off last year, when he led the league in average and stolen bases. The second baseman is batting .348/.389/.472 and is tied for the American League lead in steals with teammate George Springer at eight.
    Tuesday, 10:35 pm
  • Gordon has two-hit night in win over Mets
    Dee Gordon finished 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Gordon singled and scored the first run of the game in the Marlins' three-run sixth inning, and he also collected his fifth double of the game. The speedy second baseman raised his line to an impressive .400/.415/.478 through 21 games, with eight steals and 11 runs scored. Gordon has been doing his part, and with some more production behind him in the lineup that run total should creep higher in subsequent months if he keeps getting on base.
    Tuesday, 7:24 pm
  • Dozier not in Twins' lineup on Tuesday
    Brian Dozier is not in the Twins' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: It's just a day off. Eduardo Escobar is at second base and Danny Santana is back in the leadoff spot for the Twins, who are taking on Tigers righty Anibal Sanchez.
    Tuesday, 1:32 pm
  • Turner clubs pinch-hit three-run homer in win
    Justin Turner mashed a three-run home run as a pinch-hitter as the Dodgers topped the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: The Dodgers had put two men on base with one out against Yusmeiro Petit in the eighth inning. Turner laced the first pitch he saw over the outstretched glove of center fielder Angel Pagan for a three-run blast to extend the Dodgers' lead to 8-3. It's the first homer of the year for Turner, who is batting .310/.333/.517 in 30 plate appearances as a utilityman.

  • Travis homers again, but the Blue Jays lose
    Devon Travis clubbed his sixth home run of the season, but the Blue Jays lost 6-5 to the Red Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Travis finished 2-for-4 with a first-inning RBI single along with the home run. The second baseman took Red Sox starter Joe Kelly yard in the third inning, continuing what has been a very impressive first month for the rookie. Along with the six home runs, Travis is hitting .368/.419/.721 with 18 RBI.
    Monday, 6:47 pm
  • Nick Franklin (oblique) near rehab assignment
    Nick Franklin (oblique) expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment at some point this week.

    Advice: Franklin seemed to be trending toward minor league games early last week, but the Rays slowed his rehab as a precautionary measure. The 24-year-old was poised to open the 2015 season as Tampa Bay's starting second baseman before suffering an oblique strain at the end of spring training. He should be ready to rock in early May and may carry some value in deep fantasy leagues.

  • Neil Walker's three hits pace Pirates attack
    Neil Walker went 3-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs on Sunday, leading the Pirates offensive attack in an 8-0 victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Walker's two-run double off Jeremy Hellickson in the fifth inning plated a pair of runs and gave the Pirates a 4-0 lead. He also drew a walk and scored a run on the afternoon. Serving primarily as the team's cleanup hitter this season, Walker is off to a strong start hitting .300/.333/.457 with nine RBI in the early going.
    Apr 26, 4:39 pm
  • Brian Dozier goes 2-for-5 as leadoff man
    Moved up to the leadoff spot, Brian Dozier went 2-for-5 with a double, a walk, a steal and two runs scored in the Twins' 8-5 victory over the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: That's more like it. Dozier obviously belongs at or very near the top of the Twins lineup, not in the cleanup spot that he had occupied recently. He raised his average to .215 tonight, and the steal was his first of the year.
    Apr 25, 10:02 pm
  • Wong hits triple in win over Brewers
    Kolten Wong hit an RBI triple in Saturday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: The second inning three-bagger was Wong's first of the season and his only hit of the game, as he finished 1-for-4. Wong also struck out once and scored once. He's now hitting .288/.350/.442. If Jason Heyward continues to scuffle, Wong could see time in the two-hole. As of now, he's hitting sixth for yet another strong Cardinals team.
    Apr 25, 7:47 pm
  • Altuve slugs three-run shot, Astros beat A's
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer Saturday in the Astros' 9-3 rout of the A's.

    Advice: Altuve hit his three-run shot off A's starter Kendall Graveman in the top of the second inning. He also singled in the top of the first but was caught stealing second base. The diminutive 24-year-old is batting .315/.367/.425 with two home runs and five steals in 17 games this season for the Astros, who are off to a 10-7 start.
    Apr 25, 4:30 pm
  • Travis hits solo homer in blowout loss
    Devon Travis hit a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: That's home runs in back-to-back games for the infielder. He had been dealing with a rib injury suffered after he was hit by a pitch on April 19, but appears to be swinging fine. Though the Blue Jays went on to lose 12-3, they must be thrilled to have Travis back in the lineup. In the early going, he's hitting .375/.435/.732 with five home runs, 16 RBI and 12 runs scored.
    Apr 24, 9:45 pm
  • Brian Dozier goes 0-for-4 in loss
    Brian Dozier went 0-for-4 and struck out three times in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Moving Dozier into the cleanup spot hasn't done the Twins any good; he's 5-for-28 with two RBI in eight games there. He should be the team's second best OBP guy behind Joe Mauer, so it'd certainly make more sense to have him batting first or second. Ideally, he'd hit first and Danny Santana would be dropped to the ninth spot.
    Apr 24, 9:25 pm
  • Gordon notches three hits and a steal in win
    Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Gordon hit the RBI single off of Jordan Zimmerman in the fifth inning. He also flashed his reckless side, as he was thrown out at second on the same play. Gordon giveth and he taketh away in that fashion. Later in the game, he recorded his eighth steal of the season. In Gordon's first year with the Marlins, he is slashing a lovely .370/.382/.452. If we're going to quibble with the great start, Gordon's walked just twice in 73 at-bats, meaning that his OBP is largely dependent on his bat.
    Apr 24, 7:37 pm
  • Ryan Flaherty (groin) placed on disabled list
    Orioles placed INF Ryan Flaherty on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 23, with a strained right groin.

    Advice: Flaherty thinks he'll be ready to play in a week or so, but Baltimore couldn't afford to wait. With J.J. Hardy (shoulder) and Jonathan Schoop (knee) also out, the O's will roll with Everth Cabrera at shortstop and Jimmy Paredes and Rey Navarro at second base for a while.
