  • Utley homers in loss to the Padres
    Chase Utley went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, which accounted for the only runs that the Dodgers scored in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: It's been a tough stretch of games for the 37-year-old. He's hitting 2-for-21 (.095) in his last six games, but his crazy-hot start to the campaign means he still boasts a .286/.375/.440 slash line and bats lead-off for the Dodgers. Despite that, he currently ranks outside the top-20 fantasy second basemen and isn't a desirable option outside of deep mixed leagues and standard NL-only leagues. In fact, if Howie Kendrick can find any success whatsoever at the plate, he'll probably start to eat into Utley's playing time as the season progresses. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Odor triples three times in win over Angels
    Rougned Odor tripled three times and scored twice in Saturday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: Odor stood atop the order for the Rangers again, which is a good sign, and set the table nicely with a three-pack of doubles. Greedy fantasy owners likely said that it would've been nice to see him knock in a few runs. That's perhaps the only downfall of his new home in the lead-off role. He's hitting .264/.312/.448 with three homers and four stolen bases. The 22-year-old has been a top-10 fantasy second baseman this month and has the potential to be much more than that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:49 pm
  • Perez homers in loss to Marlins
    Hernan Perez launched a two-out, two-run home run as a pinch hitter in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: He made his second appearance of the campaign on Saturday and supplied his club with fleeting hope with his pinch-hit homer in the seventh inning off lefty Craig Breslow. He's only with the big-league club due to an injury to Scooter Gennett (oblique) and isn't currently worth owning in any fantasy format. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:35 pm
  • Lawrie homers, steals base against Orioles
    Brett Lawrie homered, stole a base and scored two runs in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Lawrie hit a solo home run, his third of the season, in the fourth inning before walking to lead off the seventh. He promptly stole second base -- his second steal of the year -- and came around to score on an Austin Jackson RBI single. In his first year with the Sox, Lawrie is hitting .267/.347/.444 with nine RBI and 14 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:28 pm
  • Forsythe homers, reaches four times in win
    Logan Forsythe went 3-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Forsythe also walked in the game, reaching base in all four plate appearances. The solo homer in the seventh inning tied the game and set the stage for the Rays' walk-off winner in the ninth. Forsythe has carried his 2015 breakout into this year, batting .341/.426/.610 with four homers, 10 RBI, 14 runs scored and three steals as the Rays' leadoff hitter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:33 pm
  • Joe Panik (groin) is available to pinch hit
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted Saturday that Joe Panik (groin) is likely to sit out the remainder of the weekend, though he is available to pinch hit.

    Advice: Panik suffered a minor groin injury during the final inning of Friday's game. Kelby Tomlinson is starting in his place on Saturday and is expected to fill in again on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:37 am

  • Panik (groin) not in Giants starting lineup
    Joe Panik (groin) is not in the Giants starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Mets.

    Advice: Panik suffered a minor groin injury during the ninth inning of Friday's game and will be held out on Saturday as a precautionary measure. Kelby Tomlinson will start in his place and bat eight against opposing right-hander Jacob deGrom. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:36 am

  • Bonifacio expected to rejon Braves on Monday
    Emilio Bonifacio is expected to rejoin the Braves on Monday.

    Advice: With the rain out on Saturday, the Braves are afforded the luxury of skipping the fifth starter spot in their rotation which could prompt them to return to a 12-man pitching staff and carry Bonifacio in a utility role at least for a few days. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 am

  • Aledmys Diaz not in Cardinals starting lineup
    Aledmys Diaz is not in the Cardinals starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against the Nationals.

    Advice: Ruben Tejada will start in his place and bat seventh against opposing right-hander Joe Ross. Diaz, who is hitting a ridiculous .420/.452/.739 with four homers and 13 RBI on the season, should return to the lineup on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 am
  • Prado has three more hits Friday
    Martin Prado went 3-for-5 with a run scored Friday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Prado had two singles and a double. He now has three hits in three straight games, which has raised his batting average from .333 to .397 in the process. Only Cardinals rookie shortstop Aledmys Diaz (.420) has a higher batting average in the majors. Prado finished with nine home runs last season and has yet to go deep so far this season, so his upside is a bit limited in fantasy leagues, but he can be a useful piece in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:50 pm
  • Espinosa socks two-run homer vs. Cards
    Danny Espinosa went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday’s win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: After Jayson Werth gave the Nationals the lead in the fourth inning with a sacrifice fly, Espinosa followed by taking Mike Leake deep for his first home run of the season. It was nice to see, but he’ll need to do more to silence those clamoring for top prospect Trea Turner. Espinosa is batting just .194/.320/.258 through 22 games this season.

  • Joe Panik suffers minor groin injury Friday
    Joe Panik suffered a minor groin injury while running out of the batter's box in the ninth inning on Friday.

    Advice: While it doesn't sound like anything serious, Panik indicated he will wait and see how he feels in the morning before determining his availability for Saturday's game against the Mets. The Giants may opt to simply play things safe and rest him on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:18 pm

  • Kipnis launches solo homer vs. Phillies
    Jason Kipnis launched a two-run homer Friday against the Phillies.

    Advice: The Indians were held scoreless after Kipnis’ two-run blast off Adam Morgan in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old has two home runs and five RBI over his last four games, but he continues to strike out at an alarming rate. He fanned two more times on Friday and has struck out in 32.6 percent of his plate appearances so far this season. That’s almost double where he was last year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:54 pm
  • Harrison launches first homer to lead Bucs
    Josh Harrison launched his first home run of the 2016 season on Friday, leading the Pirates to a 4-1 victory over the visiting Reds.

    Advice: Harrison's fourth-inning blast off Dan Straily increased the Bucs' early lead to 2-0 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He has been outstanding at the plate through the season's first month, slashing .333/.372/.448 with a homer, 14 RBI and four stolen bases. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:53 pm

  • Brett Lawrie goes deep in loss to Orioles
    Brett Lawrie went deep for the second time this season as the White Sox lost to the Orioles on Friday.

    Advice: His solo shot off Brad Brach in the seventh inning briefly pulled the White Sox even at 3-3, but wound up being the extent of their scoring. Lawrie finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .264/.340/.414 with two bombs and eight RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:23 pm
  • Brad Miller clubs solo homer in loss to Jays
    Brad Miller clubbed his second home run of the season as the Rays fell to the Blue Jays on Friday evening.

    Advice: Miller's solo blast off Drew Storen in the eighth inning merely got the Rays on the board, barely cutting into a 6-0 deficit at the time. He also singled, finishing the night 2-for-3 plus a walk to raise his season slash to .172/.243/.344. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:58 pm

  • Gennett (oblique) expected to miss 3 weeks
    The Brewers expect Scooter Gennett (oblique) to miss three weeks of action.

    Advice: Gennett was placed on the disabled list Thursday with a strained right oblique. The injury didn't require an MRI, though, as the club believes the strain is a slight one. "It's not a bad (injury)," manager Craig Counsell said. "They didn't do an MRI. It wasn't deemed serious enough for that. It's still a DL (situation), though. These things are a little tricky so we'll go with it. He's not playing for at least two weeks, then we'll see." Yadiel Rivera has made two straight starts at second base with Gennett out, but Colin Walsh and Hernan Perez should see some time there, as well. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:50 am

  • Dee Gordon suspended 80 games for PEDs
    MLB suspended Dee Gordon for 80 games without pay for testing positive for performance-enhancing substances.

    Advice: Stunning late-night news. Gordon tested positive for exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol. The suspension is effective immediately. Gordon has turned his career around over the past two seasons and won the NL batting crown during his first season with the Marlins last year. The 28-year-old recently signed a five-year, $50 million extension with Miami, but the club will now be without him until after the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:24 pm

  • Matt Carpenter can't find hit in shutout loss
    Matt Carpenter went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: As a team, the Cardinals managed just three hits on the evening, so Carpenter shouldn't feel too bad for his struggles. He is slashing .241/.394/.456 with three homers, four doubles, a pair of triples and 16 RBI over hits first 79 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:16 pm

  • Espinosa hitless in loss to Phillies
    Danny Espinosa went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Thursday’s loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Espinosa is now batting .172/.310/.190 overall. Meanwhile, top prospect shortstop Trea Turner entered Thursday’s action with a .357/.430/.529 batting line over 18 games with Triple-A Syracuse. Just saying. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:25 pm

    Brock Holt is not in Thursday's lineup against the Braves.

    Advice: Chris Young will make the start in left field despite right-hander Jhoulys Chacin on the mound. Holt is batting just .188/.293/.229 over his last 14 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:23 pm

  • White Sox recall Carlos Sanchez from AAA
    White Sox recalled INF Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Sanchez is a .229/.268/.321 career hitter in 524 major league plate appearances. He's not fantasy-relevant. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:14 am
  • Anthony Rendon getting day off Thursday
    Anthony Rendon is getting the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Stephen Drew will start at third base and bat seventh versus Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. It's just a day of rest for Rendon, who's off to a sluggish start. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:12 am
  • Yadiel Rivera starting at 2B on Thursday
    Yadiel Rivera is starting at second base for the Brewers on Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.

    Advice: Rivera should get regular playing time at second while Scooter Gennett recovers from an oblique strain. The 23-year-old hit well in last year's Arizona Fall League and carried that over into Cactus League play, but he's probably not worth a pickup in standard leagues. Rivera is 5-for-23 (.217/.250/.348) to open the 2016 MLB season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:09 am
  • Brewers add Hernan Perez to MLB roster
    Brewers purchased the contract of INF Hernan Perez from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Perez will give the Brewers much-needed infield depth while Scooter Gennett recovers from an oblique strain. He's a .235/.251/.307 career hitter at the MLB level. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:00 am
  • Brewers put Scooter Gennett (oblique) on DL
    Brewers placed 2B Scooter Gennett on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

    Advice: Gennett suffered the injury during batting practice Tuesday on a cold evening at Wrigley Field. He could be out for a month. It's an especially tough blow because the second baseman was off to a great start this season, sporting an .877 OPS and four home runs in 18 games. Yadiel Rivera, Colin Walsh, and Hernan Perez will fill in at second base. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:59 am

  • Kolten Wong (flu) reaches as pinch-hitter
    Kolten Wong (flu) reached on a pinch-hit infield single Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Maybe that will help him get off the schneid. Wong, out since Monday with flu-like symptoms, is still batting just .220/.293/.220 in 18 games this year for St. Louis. Jedd Gyorko started at second base Wednesday in Arizona and went 1-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored. Wong should return to the lineup Thursday night. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:48 am
  • Jose Altuve homers, doubles twice in win
    Jose Altuve homered, doubled twice and scored three times Wednesday as the Astros topped the Mariners 7-4.

    Advice: Altuve has been a fantasy dynamo with his .330 average, six homers, 20 runs, 13 RBI and nine steals in 22 games in what amounts to one-seventh of a season. He has more homers this year than he did in 626 at-bats in 2013. Even in 2014, he had just seven homers in 660 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:11 am
  • Aledmys Diaz stays scorching hot in Arizona
    Aledmys Diaz had a homer, a walk, and a single in the Cardinals' 11-4 rout of Arizona on Wednesday.

    Advice: Diaz finished the night 2-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored, and he's now batting .468/.500/.823 with four home runs over his first 66 major league plate appearances. This incredible start from the 25-year-old Cuban shortstop is already in historic territory. Maybe it's time for Cardinals manager Mike Matheny to hit him higher than eighth. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:22 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia collects two homers in win
    Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI to lead the Red Sox to a 9-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Four games against the Braves was just what the doctor ordered for the Red Sox. Pedroia had two homers in a game for the seventh time in his career (oddly enough, four of those have come since the start of 2015). He also drove in five runs for the seventh time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:06 pm
  • Walker clobbers ninth homer, Mets beat Reds
    Neil Walker enjoyed a big night at the plate in Wednesday's win over the Reds, clobbering his ninth homer of the year and getting on base three times.

    Advice: Walker now has nine homers in 83 plate appearances. He only had seven homers in the entire first half a year ago with Pittsburg. It's perhaps worth noting that Walker had actually been quite bad at Citi Field, hitting just .226/.226/.323 in his first eight home games. It's nice to see the power show up at his home ballpark for the second time this homestand, as he was better on the road in 2015, too. The Mets' second baseman now has a .300/.325/.638 slash line with 12 runs scored and 16 runs batted in. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:06 pm
  • Phillips (finger, shin) down again Wednesday
    Brandon Phillips (finger, shin) is out again Wednesday.

    Advice: Ivan DeJesus Jr. will start at second base and bat second against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey. Phillips has bruises on his left hand and shin. He remains day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:40 am
  • Jose Altuve walks twice in depressing loss
    Jose Altuve went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: The Astros offense was nowhere to be found on Tuesday, with the team logging just three hits total against Nathan Karns and company. In addition to his two walks, Altuve also struck out once. The diminutive second baseman has done everything in his power to try to spark the team's winning ways from 2015 and is hitting .313/.412/.602 with five homers, 11 RBI and nine steals over 85 at-bats. Despite all of that happiness, the Astros sit at just 6-15. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:34 pm
  • Kipnis connects for second homer of season
    Jason Kipnis hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Kipnis got the Indians on the board early, taking Twins starter Ricky Nolasco out to right for a solo homer. The home run was his first in almost two weeks and just his second overall. A modest six-game hitting streak has helped the 29-year-old raise his numbers in recent days, and he's hitting .282/.329/.423 with two homers, eight RBI, 10 runs scored and three steals to date. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:25 pm
  • Odor hits third home run in win over Yankees
    Rougned Odor hit his third home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Batting leadoff once again, Odor got on the board with a solo shot in the eighth inning of a lopsided win. Still, the 22-year-old will take it, as will fantasy owners. Odor enjoyed a big spring but got off to a slow start out of the gate, and through 21 games he's hitting .234/.272/.403 with three homers, 14 RBI, 11 runs scored and four steals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:32 pm
  • Forsythe doubles twice, scores vs. Orioles
    Logan Forsythe went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run scored Tuesday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Forsythe continued playing catalyst atop the Rays' lineup, registering his fourth multi-hit game in his last eight contests. The second baseman is now hitting .306/.383/.556 with three homers, eight RBI and 13 runs scored. It appears as though last year's breakout was a legitimate one. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:08 pm
  • Scooter Gennett scratched with tight oblique
    Scooter Gennett was scratched from the Brewers' lineup Tuesday due to right oblique tightness.

    Advice: The change happened just before first pitch at Wrigley Field, after Gennett's oblique tightened up during batting practice. The second baseman is considered day-to-day for now, but oblique injuries will sometimes linger. Gennett has produced an .877 OPS with four home runs in 18 games this season. Yadiel Rivera is starting at second on Tuesday night against the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:14 pm

  • Gennett late scratch from the Brewers lineup
    Scooter Gennett was scratched from the Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

  • Wong (flu) won't start Tuesday vs. D'Backs
    Kolten Wong (flu) is out of the Cardinals' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Wong came down with flu-like symptoms over the weekend. He did enter Monday's series opener against the Diamondbacks in the sixth inning, but the second baseman struck out in his one at-bat and made an error in the field before exiting. Jedd Gyorko will start at second and bat seventh Tuesday against Arizona right-hander Shelby Miller. Wong, 25, has a brutal .485 OPS in 17 games this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:48 pm
  • Marlins activate Prado from paternity leave
    Marlins activated 3B Martin Prado from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: Prado was excused from the team on Saturday afternoon to welcome a new child. The veteran third baseman returns Tuesday to an impressive .340/.382/.420 batting line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:10 pm
  • Brandon Phillips (finger) sitting against Mets
    Brandon Phillips (finger, shin) is not in the Reds' lineup Tuesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Phillips is beat up after taking a pitch off his left finger Monday and fouling a ball off his left shin. Ivan DeJesus Jr. will take over at second base and bat seventh against right-hander Bartolo Colon. Consider Phillips day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:47 pm
  • Kolten Wong dealing with the flu
    Kolten Wong is battling the flu.

    Advice: Wong wasn't in the starting lineup Monday against the Diamondbacks but he entered in the sixth inning, striking out and committing an error at second base before leaving an inning later. He's obviously not 100 percent. Jedd Gyorko started in his place Monday and would probably do the same Tuesday if Wong is still under the weather. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:16 am
  • Neil Walker swats go-ahead homer vs. Reds
    Neil Walker went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead two-run homer in a 5-3 win over the Reds on Monday.

    Advice: The Reds tied the game in the top of the seventh inning before Walker took JC Ramirez deep in the bottom of the frame. The 30-year-old is now up to eight home runs on the year, so he’s already halfway to his total from all of last season. He’s also just one home run away from tying the Mets’ club record for home runs in April. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:00 pm
  • X-rays negative on Brandon Phillips' finger
    X-rays came back negative on Brandon Phillips' left finger.

    Advice: Phillips was forced to exit Monday's game against the Mets after he was hit in the left hand by a Noah Syndergaard, but fortunately there was no structural damage. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:56 pm
  • Brandon Phillips exits game after HBP on hand
    Brandon Phillips exited Monday's game against the Mets in the fourth inning after he was hit in the hand by a pitch.

    Advice: It was a painful at-bat for Phillips, who fouled two pitches off his foot before being hit in the hand by a Noah Syndergaard fastball. Ivan DeJesus, Jr. replaced him in the game. The Reds should pass along an update soon. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:23 pm
  • Pedroia collects three hits as Red Sox win
    Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-7 with a double, triple and run scored as the Red Sox topped the Astros 7-5 on Sunday night in Houston.

    Advice: The diminutive second sacker has been on fire at the plate through the first three weeks of the season, slashing .321/.361/.449 with one homer and six RBI. He still hasn't swiped a base though, despite his preseason proclamation that he would be running more in 2016. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 10:14 pm
  • Aledmys Diaz stays hot with a 3-for-5
    Aledmys Diaz went 3-for-5 with a solo homer in the Cardinals' defeat of the Padres on Sunday.

    Advice: The solo shot tied the game at 5-5 in the top of the sixth inning, and the Cardinals went on to win by three. Diaz hit a pinch-hit single on Friday and went 5-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI on Sunday, so he officially finished 9-for-11 with three RBI in the three-game weekend set at Petco Park. The Cuban shortstop is slashing .480/.509/.860 over his first 53 plate appearances at the major league level. Maybe it's time for him to hit a little higher in the Cardinals' lineup. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 5:18 pm
  • Gordon steals two bags, scores twice in SF
    Dee Gordon finished 2-for-5 with two stolen bases and two runs scored Sunday in the Marlins' 5-4 defeat of the Giants.

    Advice: In the third inning, Gordon singled, stole second and third base, and then scored on a Christian Yelich groundout. In the fifth, he singled, made it to third base on a Marcell Ozuna base hit, and then raced home on another Yelich grounder. Some of the peripherals have been underwhelming, but the speedy second baseman boasts six stolen bases and 10 runs scored in 17 games this season. Rotoworld.com Apr 24, 4:30 pm

  • Panik gets on base three times in win
    Joe Panik went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in Saturday's win over the Marlins, giving him at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games.

    Advice: Panik frustrated Jose Fernandez all night, singling in the first inning and drawing a walk in the third. Even his one out came on a liner to center field. The 25-year-old is now hitting .257/.321/.457 and benefits from hitting second in a deep Giants lineup. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 10:45 pm

  • Utley collects three hits in win
    Chase Utley collected a double and a pair of singles on Saturday against the Rockies, increasing his batting average to .317.

    Advice: Utley has thrived in the leadoff role for the Dodgers, hitting .317/.377/.460 in 69 plate appearances. And although he hasn't homered yet this year, the fact that he has five doubles and two triples suggests that the power hasn't disappeared. Fantasy owners shouldn't dwell on his .212 batting average from a year ago, either. A guy with a career .300 BABIP wasn't going to have a .230 BABIP two seasons in a row. He could hit double-digit home runs this year with a solid, but unspectacular, batting average. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 8:49 pm
  • Altuve paces Houston with three hits Saturday
    Jose Altuve bashed three hits Saturday in an 8-3 win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: That bumps his average up to a healthy .314. Altuve has been a lot more patient this year, swinging on a little more than 41 percent of pitches compared to his career rate of 49.2. He's on pace to draw 81 free passes this year, which is more than double his career-high of 40. In addition to his hitting prowess, Altuve leads the majors with seven steals this year. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 5:16 pm
  • Matt Carpenter getting the day off Saturday
    Matt Carpenter is not in the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

    Advice: He's sitting out for the first time this year. Carpenter had a tough night Friday, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. He also committed his third error of the season. Jedd Gyorko will fill in at third base and bat seventh. Kolten Wong is hitting leadoff in place of Carpenter. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 1:44 pm

  • Martin Prado going on paternity leave
    Marlins placed 3B Martin Prado on the paternity list.

    Advice: That might explain why Prado hasn't been in the lineup the last two nights. Left-hander Cody Ege was called up from Triple-A New Orleans in the corresponding roster move. Prado should be back in a few days. Rotoworld.com Apr 23, 1:19 pm
  • Brett Lawrie plates two in win over Rangers
    Brett Lawrie went 1-for-3 and drove in a pair of runs on Friday, helping to lead the White Sox to a 5-0 victory over the Rangers.

    Advice: Lawrie's two-run double in the sixth inning increased the White Sox advantage to 4-0 at the time and would prove to be more than enough support for Jose Quintana. Lawrie also drew a walk in the contest and is now hitting a solid .288/.364/.424 with six RBI on the young season. Rotoworld.com Apr 22, 8:25 pm
  • Forsythe doubles twice vs Yankees in loss
    Logan Forsythe went 2-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Friday’s loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: It’s crazy to think that Forsythe was an established low-.200s hitter with minimal power just two years ago. He’s now proven himself to be a quality, well-rounded hitter. His two-hit night on Friday raised his batting average to .298, and he now has eight extra-base hits with an impressive .375 on-base percentage. For those who thought last year was a fluke, Forsythe is coming out strong in 2016 to argue otherwise. Rotoworld.com Apr 22, 7:27 pm
  • Martin Prado sitting out on Friday
    Martin Prado is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Prado isn't known to be hurt, but this is the second time in the last three games he's been benched. Derek Dietrich is starting at third base and J.T. Realmuto is in the No. 2 spot in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Apr 22, 2:54 pm
  • Aledmys Diaz not in lineup Friday
    Aledmys Diaz is absent from the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Diaz has now sat out two of the last three games, as the Cards are going with the more sure-handed Ruben Tejada. St. Louis also has Matt Adams at first base Friday, as Brandon Moss and Jeremy Hazelbaker are on the bench. Rotoworld.com Apr 22, 2:46 pm
  • Logan Forsythe scores three times in victory
    Logan Forsythe went 3-for-4 with two walks and three runs scored as the Rays beat the Red Sox 12-8 on Thursday.

    Advice: Forsythe's OBP climbed from .304 to .355 with his five times on base today. That's what the Rays wanted from him in the leadoff spot after he spent most of last year batting in the middle of the order. Rotoworld.com Apr 21, 3:08 pm
  • Dustin Pedroia goes 3-for-6, homers
    Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-6 and hit his first homer Thursday against the Rays.

    Advice: The third hit was the 1,500th of his career. At 32, he's quite a long shot to reach 3,000 in his career. Still, he won't need to get all of the there to be Cooperstown worthy. He will need to stay relatively healthy into his mid-30s. Rotoworld.com Apr 21, 2:59 pm
  • Dee Gordon out of Marlins' lineup Thursday
    Dee Gordon is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Nationals.

    Advice: Derek Dietrich will start at second base and hit sixth versus Washington right-hander Max Scherzer. Giancarlo Stanton is also getting a day off for the matinee game. Rotoworld.com Apr 21, 7:06 am

  • Rougned Odor homers in Rangers' win
    Rougned Odor homered to give the Rangers their two runs Wednesday in a 2-1 victory over the Astros.

    Advice: Odor didn't get the No. 2 spot in the order when Shin-Soo Choo went down, but he is hitting .301 with two homers, four doubles and 13 RBI over his last 10 games. He's going to be a top-notch fantasy second baseman this year. Rotoworld.com Apr 20, 9:58 pm
  • Brock Holt appears at shortstop
    Brock Holt made his season debut at shortstop after replacing an injured Xander Bogaerts in Wednesday's game.

    Advice: If this gives Holt shortstop eligibility in your league, he just got a whole lot more valuable. Unfortunately, it'll probably be quite a while before he gets five-game eligibility at shortstop, especially with Bogaerts expected back in a day or two. Rotoworld.com Apr 20, 9:21 pm
