  • Segura goes 2-for-4 with a home run
    Jean Segura hit a solo home run in the first inning and added an RBI double in the second on Saturday.

    Advice: In his first season as a Diamondback, Segura is having a nice bounce-back campaign after being one of the league's worst hitters the last two years in Milwaukee. He is batting .313 with nine home runs, 62 runs, 42 RBI and 17 stolen bases. Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Peterson collects three hits in loss to Phils
    Jace Peterson went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Peterson had two singles and a double while batting leadoff in the game. The three hits raised his season average to .270 with a .748 OPS. Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Rosales hits walk-off home run vs Reds on Sat
    Adam Rosales led off the home half of the 10th inning with a walk-off home run on Saturday to beat the Reds.

    Advice: It was his eighth homer of the season in only 146 at-bats. The 33-year-old journeyman is batting only .212 this year, primarily as a pinch-hitter who starts once a week or so. His playing time might receive a slight boost as the Padres sell off players at the trade deadline. Yesterday, 9:20 pm
    1:40 pm vs Cin
  • Amarista goes 3-for-4 with an RBI and SB
    Alexi Amarista went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Reds.

  • Perez' three hits, three RBI propel Brewers
    Hernan Perez went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Brewers to a 5-3 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

    Advice: Perez, getting a rare start in the third spot in the lineup with Ryan Braun sidelined, took Pirates starter Jameson Taillon deep for a two-run shot in the first inning to set the tone. He tacked on an RBI single in the seventh inning to extend the Brewers' lead. After years of relative obscurity, the 25-year-old is trying to make a name for himself in 2016, batting .283/.308/.444 with seven homers and 16 steals in 66 games. Yesterday, 9:05 pm
    11:10 am vs Pit
  • Gordon scores three times in rout of Cards
    Dee Gordon went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and three runs scored as the Marlins skunked the Cardinals 11-0 on Saturday.

    Advice: In his third game back from suspension, Gordon showed what the Marlins were missing, stealing his seventh base of the year and playing catalyst atop the lineup. The three runs give him 17 runs scored in 24 games this year. With a couple of good games in recent days, Gordon has his line up to .264/.291/.340 and climbing. Yesterday, 8:48 pm
  • Ramirez has two hits, homer against Athletics
    Jose Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a home run in a win over the Athletics on Saturday.

    Advice: The homer was the fifth of the year for Ramirez. The 23-year-old now has three consecutive multi-hit games to raise his season average to .293. He's hitting .293/.355/.413 with five homers, 42 RBI, 49 runs scored and 11 steals on the year. Yesterday, 8:18 pm

  • Johnson goes 2-for-3 with an RBI on Saturday
    Kelly Johnson went 2-for-3 and delivered an RBI single on Saturday.

    Advice: Johnson is batting .247 with four home runs and 16 RBI in 83 games. It has been several years since he was good enough to use in fantasy starting lineups. Yesterday, 8:17 pm

  • Kipnis has double, homer in win over A's
    Jason Kipnis went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Athletics.

    Advice: Kipnis homered in the first inning and just missed a second homer with an RBI double off the wall in the fourth inning. The second baseman is now hitting .344 with six homers, 10 RBI and 20 runs scored in July. Kipnis is hitting .288/.346/.495 with 17 homers, 55 RBI, 59 runs scored and seven steals overall. Yesterday, 8:12 pm
  • Escobar hits three-run home run on Saturday
    Eduardo Escobar went 3-for-5 and smashed a three-run home run on Saturday.

    Advice: The big bomb in the eighth inning temporarily put the Twins on top but the White Sox would come back to win in extra innings. Escobar is hitting .269 with 4 home runs and 25 RBI in 212 at-bats. He stands to get a boost in playing time now that Eduardo Nunez was traded to the Giants. Yesterday, 7:49 pm

  • Miller hits 16th homer, Rays defeat Yankees
    Brad Miller went 2-for-4 with a home run to help the Rays top the Yankees 6-3 on Saturday.

    Advice: Miller hit his 16th home run of the season in the first inning off Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi. It was his fifth in his last nine games, a stretch in which he has five multi-hit games. It's shaping up to be a career year in all aspects for the 26-year-old, who's hitting .253/.301/.479 with 38 RBI, 43 runs scored and four steals on the year. Yesterday, 7:25 pm
    10:10 am vs NYY
  • Beckham homers, scores twice against Yankees
    Tim Beckham went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored Saturday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Beckham hit a two-run blast to the deepest part of the park in the seventh inning, his fifth homer of the year. The 26-year-old actually has a modest six-game hitting streak going, batting .545 (12-for-22) with two homers, six RBI and seven runs scored in that span. It's a glimpse of what the former top overall pick can do, but he'll have to do a lot more of it to stay in the lineup on a regular basis. Beckham is hitting .238/.295/.459 overall. Yesterday, 7:13 pm
  • Trea Turner clubs two hits in Saturday's loss
    Trea Turner collected two hits Saturday in a losing effort against the Giants.

    Advice: Turner drew the start at second base with Daniel Murphy (hamstring) getting the afternoon off. The 23-year-old is quickly turning into a major asset for the Nationals with a .333 average and seven steals in only 15 appearances. He's made starts at both center field and second base and also has some experience playing shortstop. Yesterday, 5:20 pm
  • Addison Russell goes hitless in loss to M's
    Addison Russell had a rough afternoon at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Mariners, going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts.

    Advice: The Cubs struggled to get anything going against Wade Miley and company, generating just one run on three hits in the contest. With the 0-for-4, Russell is now hitting .241/.329/.407 on the year with 12 homers and 61 RBI. Yesterday, 2:01 pm
  • Marwin Gonzalez out with right hand soreness
    Marwin Gonzalez (hand) is not in the Astros' lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Gonzalez will get the day off after exiting Friday night's game with right hand soreness. His X-rays came back negative but Gonzalez will still need a few days to heal up. Tyler White is getting the nod at first base. He'll bat seventh against Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander. Consider Gonzalez day-to-day. Yesterday, 1:55 pm

  • Aledmys Diaz not in Cardinals lineup Saturday
    Aledmys Diaz is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It appears to be just a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting shortstop. Greg Garcia is starting in his place and will bat leadoff for the Cardinals on Saturday against Collin Rea and the Marlins. Yesterday, 12:52 pm
  • Giants designate Ramiro Pena for assignment
    Giants designated INF Ramiro Pena for assignment.

    Advice: The veteran infielder was squeezed off of the Giants roster with the addition of Eduardo Nunez and return of Hunter Pence. There's a decent chance that he'll pass through waivers unclaimed and continue to function as organizational depth in the minors for the Giants. Yesterday, 11:29 am

  • Mets shying away from cost of Steve Pearce
    Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that the Mets have interest in acquiring Steve Pearce, though the cost to acquire him is higher than they're willing to pay at this time.

    Advice: The hard-hitting right-hander would provide a nice boost in the middle of the Mets lineup and his versatility would certainly help as well. Pearce, who is set to hit free agency after the season, is hitting .313/.390/.527 with 10 homers and 29 RBI in 59 games this season. Yesterday, 11:00 am
    10:10 am vs NYY
  • Daniel Murphy (hamstring) not in lineup
    Daniel Murphy (hamstring) is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: In what would have been a juicy matchup against Giants right-hander Jake Peavy, Murphy will get an extra day to rest his hamstring that tightened up on Friday. Trea Turner will start at second base and bat leadoff for the Nationals on Saturday. Yesterday, 10:53 am
    1:05 pm @SF
  • Daniel Murphy leaves with minor leg injury
    Daniel Murphy was pulled from Friday's game against the Giants when his leg tightneed up on him in the sixth inning.

    Advice: It sounds like it's a minor issue and the club called his early exit precautionary. It wouldn't be terribly surprising to see him get an extra day of rest on Saturday however. Yesterday, 5:32 am
    1:05 pm @SF
  • Phillips goes 3-for-5 and scores twice Friday
    Brandon Phillips went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored on Friday.

    Advice: Two of the hits were doubles. He seems to be recovering nicely from the hairline fracture in his hand that he has been playing through for a few weeks. His owners are hoping he can improve his weak .263/.301/.369 slash line over the last two months of the season. Friday, 11:22 pm
  • Odor homers twice in win over Royals
    Rougned Odor finished 3-for-4 with a pair of solo homers in a win over the Royals on Friday.

    Advice: It was the second multi-homer game of his career. The first one was a legitimate blast, but the second just barely eked over the right field fence. But it all counts the same in the box score. He’s now up to 21 homers on the year to go along with 54 RBI, 10 steals, and a .282/.301/.508 batting line. Friday, 9:34 pm
  • Profar homers, scores three runs on Friday
    Jurickson Profar went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk, and three runs scored Friday against the Royals.

    Advice: Profar, who batted leadoff, went opposite-field off Edinson Volquez in the sixth. It’s worth noting that he made the start in left field. He previously made four starts at the position in 2013, but this was his first with the Rangers this year. There’s always the chance that Profar could be traded in a blockbuster deal by Monday’s deadline, but his versatility could come in handy for the Rangers down the stretch. Friday, 9:33 pm

  • Kipnis has RBI single in win over A's
    Jason Kipnis went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Friday’s 5-3 win over the Athletics.

    Advice: Kipnis tied things up with a single against Marc Rzepczynski in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Indians then took the lead on a wild pitch from Ryan Dull. Kipnis has hit .333 this month to go along with five homers, but it has resulted in just eight RBI. On the bright side, he has scored 18 runs in the process. He’s batting .285/.342/.483 with 16 homers on the year, so he’s shown a significant uptick in power from the previous two seasons. Friday, 8:36 pm
  • Cesar Hernandez reaches four times in loss
    Cesar Hernandez had a nice night at the plate in Friday's loss to the Braves, reaching base four times and scoring the Phillies' lone run.

    Advice: Hernandez went 1-for-2 and drew three walks, serving as a terrific catalyst atop the Phillies lineup. The only issue was that the hitters behind him failed to drive him in. Hernandez is having a nice season offensively, slashing .289/.341/.375 with two homers, 26 RBI and 10 stolen bases. Friday, 8:02 pm
  • Forsythe homers in win over Yankees
    Logan Forsythe went 2-for-5 with a solo homer in a win over the Yankees on Friday.

    Advice: Forsythe hit his first career leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning and later added a single in the eighth. The 29-year-old was productive after returning from a fractured left shoulder blade last month, but his production has dropped off significantly in July. Still, he already has as many homers against right-handers (seven) as he had all of last season. Friday, 7:28 pm
  • Trea Turner not in Nationals lineup Friday
    Trea Turner is not in the Nationals starting lineup against the Giants on Friday.

    Advice: The young speedster has brought a spark to the Nationals lineup with his speed, but he'll sit this one out in favor of Wilmer Difo who was recalled from Triple-A earlier in the week. Expect to see Turner back in there on Saturday. Friday, 3:35 pm
  • Steve Pearce expected to be traded
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Steve Pearce "will be dealt."

    Advice: As a versatile impending free agent who's hitting .312/.384/.528, it's no surprise that Pearce is expected to be on the move. The Indians are known to have interest in Pearce, although there figure to be other clubs involved. The Giants had been in the mix but are now likely out after acquiring Eduardo Nunez.

  • Chris Coghlan activated from disabled list
    Cubs activated INF/OF Chris Coghlan from the 15-day disabled list.

  • Ramiro Pena (groin) strikes out as PH
    Ramiro Pena (groin) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

  • Trea Turner picks up sixth steal in 13 games
    Trea Turner went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Turner came through with an RBI single to score Danny Espinosa in the second inning. His steal on Thursday was No. 6 on the season. The 23-year-old outfielder has picked up at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games and all six steals have come during that same stretch. In 51 at-bats, Turner is slashing .333/.382/.510. The jewel of the Nationals farm system deserves hard consideration for mixed-league usage given the way he is swinging the stick right now. Thursday, 11:07 pm
  • Odor hits 19th home run in win over Royals
    Rougned Odor hit his 19th home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Odor connected with a Yordano Ventura pitch in the second inning for one of three solo home runs hit by Rangers batters on the evening. He's already surpassed his single-season high for homers, besting the 16 he hit last year with two months still left to play. With 52 RBI, 62 runs scored and 10 steals to go with a .277/.297/.487 line, the 22-year-old could set a number of personal bests before the year is out. Thursday, 8:59 pm
  • Diaz homers, drives in three in win over Fish
    Aledmys Diaz went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run as the Cardinals edged the Marlins 5-4 on Thursday.

    Advice: Diaz took Jose Fernandez deep for the two-run dinger in the third inning, and he added an RBI double in the fifth. The 25-year-old now has 14 home runs, 56 RBI and 64 runs scored in his rookie year. He continues to prove the naysayers wrong, batting .313/.378/.523 through 94 games. Thursday, 7:19 pm
  • Dee Gordon goes hitless in return to lineup
    Dee Gordon went hitless in his return to the lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Gordon batted .257/.278/.343 in nine minor league games before being reinstated, so he's still probably knocking some of the rust off. In 22 games overall, Gordon is hitting .255/.277/.327, so he's really yet to get it going at all this year. That said, Gordon's speed is game-changing, and he should be in fantasy lineups for that factor alone. Thursday, 7:03 pm
  • Turner getting another start in center field
    Trea Turner will draw another start in center field Thursday against the Giants.

    Advice: He'll hit leadoff against Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto. The fact that Turner is starting against a right-hander instead of Ben Revere would suggest that Turner has usurped Revere's role as the everyday center fielder. And why not? He's hitting .319 with six RBI and five steals in only 12 contests. Until Turner's luck runs out, expect him to be in the lineup most days. He's worth a speculative add in most formats. Thursday, 4:05 pm
  • Hernan Perez homers, steals two bases
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The D'Backs jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first, but Perez knotted things back up with a two-run blast in the third. He also added a pair of stolen bases, giving him 16 on the season. While he played shortstop Thursday, Perez has taken over as the Brewers' third baseman since the trade of Aaron Hill and has provided sneaky production this season. He's on pace for 10 homers and 26 stolen bases despite a relatively limited number of at-bats. Thursday, 2:15 pm
    11:10 am vs Pit
  • Marlins reinstate Dee Gordon from suspension
    Marlins reinstated 2B Dee Gordon from suspension.

    Advice: Gordon will return to the Marlins' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals after missing the last 80 games while serving out a performance-enhancing suspension. He didn't hit the ball very well on his minor league rehab assignment, but the 28-year-old second baseman is obviously capable of having a huge fantasy impact down the stretch this season. Derek Dietrich will be shifted into more of a utility role. Thursday, 9:00 am
  • Russell blasts grand slam on Wednesday
    Addison Russell cranked a grand slam against the White Sox on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his only hit of the night but it was a big one. It was his 12th home run of the season in 379 plate appearances. He has a .248 batting average, 40 runs and 60 RBI in the Cubs strong lineup. Those are essentially league-average numbers, which is very good considering he is only 22 years old and still developing. Wednesday, 9:20 pm
  • Profar snares three hits and scores a run
    Jurickson Profar went 3-for-5 and scored a run in the Rangers' loss on Wednesday.

    Advice: One of the hits was a double. The former top overall prospect in baseball is finally healthy enough to help his fantasy owners. He is hitting .296/.349/.414 in 162 at-bats. Having played multiple games at every position except pitcher and catcher this year, his positional eligibility provides a huge boost to his fantasy value. Profar looks set to play pretty much every day moving forward unless the Rangers bring in some competition via trade or promotion. Wednesday, 8:35 pm

  • Hernan Perez plates lone run in losing effort
    Hernan Perez went 1-for-2 and drove home the Brewers' lone run in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Perez brought home Jonathan Lucroy with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, pulling the Brewers to within seven runs at 8-1. He has been a pleasant surprise in the Brewers lineup this season, slashing .274/.301/.411 with five homers, 28 RBI and 14 stolen bases. Wednesday, 8:14 pm
    11:10 am vs Pit
  • Diaz goes 2-for-5 with a run scored Wednesday
    Aledmys Diaz went 2-for-5 with a run scored as the Cardinals came back to win on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Diaz has been one of the biggest surprises in all of baseball this season. He is batting .312 with an .890 OPS as a rookie. He has 13 homers, 61 runs and 53 RBI. People have been expecting the 25-year-old shortstop's production to tail off but he has shown no signs of being a fluke. Wednesday, 8:11 pm
  • Indians possibly eyeing Steve Pearce
    The New York Post's Joel Sherman reports that the Indians are "among several teams" who have asked about Steve Pearce.

    Advice: The Indians have been tied to several players in trade rumors. In addition to Pearce, they have reportedly been looking into Eduardo Nunez, Will Smith and Jonathan Lucroy. Pearce, 33, is slashing .313/.386/.530 with 10 homers and 29 RBI over 198 at-bats. He has notched double-digit home runs in three consecutive seasons. Wednesday, 6:12 pm
    10:10 am vs NYY
  • Trea Turner goes 3-for-4 with three RBI
    Trea Turner finished 3-for-4 with three RBI in the Nationals' 4-1 win over the Indians on Wednesday.

    Advice: Turner opened the game's scoring with a two-run line-drive single in the top of the second inning and then tallied his third RBI on a double in the top of the seventh. He also doubled in the top of the first, but it didn't lead to anything. The young speedster is now batting .319/.360/.511 with six extra-base hits, six RBI, and five steals in 12 games this season. He started in center field for the second straight game Wednesday. Wednesday, 12:34 pm
  • Daniel Murphy slugs his 20th home run
    Daniel Murphy slugged his 20th home run of the season on Wednesday against the Indians.

    Advice: Murphy took Carlos Carrasco deep for a solo shot in the top of the sixth inning. He also singled in the 4-1 victory, finishing 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Murphy has an incredible .351/.388/.621 batting line with 75 RBI through 96 games this season. Wednesday, 12:24 pm

  • Ramiro Pena scratched with sore groin
    Ramiro Pena was scratched from the Giants' lineup on Wednesday due to a sore groin.

    Advice: Pena took a baseball to a bad place on Tuesday night and wasn't feeling so hot during pregame drills on Wednesday. Grant Green will start at second base versus the Reds. Wednesday, 12:10 pm

  • Padres recall Alexi Amarista from Triple-A
    Padres recalled INF/OF Alexi Amarista from Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Amarista will fill in for Yangervis Solarte, who was placed on the family leave list in a corresponding move. Amarista, 27, has hit .239/.299/.261 in 98 plate appearances this year at the major league level. Wednesday, 7:10 am
    1:40 pm vs Cin
  • Trea Turner starting in CF on Wednesday
    Trea Turner is making his second straight start in center field Wednesday versus the Indians.

    Advice: He will also bat leadoff for the Nationals against Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco. Turner made his first career start in center field on Tuesday night and had some issues, but it's the best spot for him at the moment under the Nats' current roster construction. He should be athletic enough to make it work. Wednesday, 6:27 am
  • Brad Miller notches RBI double in loss to LAD
    Brad Miller went 1-for-5 with an RBI double in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Miller hit a run-scoring double off Joe Blanton in the eighth inning. The Rays would ultimately bring home two runs in the frame, but wouldn't score again as they fell by a score of 3-2. For the season as a whole, Miller has quietly put together a nice campaign, slashing .244/.292/.457 with 15 homers, 37 RBI and four steals over 324 at-bats. Tuesday, 10:20 pm
    10:10 am vs NYY
  • Gonzalez homers twice in loss to Yankees
    Marwin Gonzalez hit two home runs in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Gonzalez was one of the only Astros hitters able to get anything done against CC Sabathia and company, taking Sabathia deep for a solo dinger in the first inning before tacking on a one-run shot in the eighth for good measure. The homers gave Gonzalez 10 on the year to go with 28 RBI and 40 runs scored. The 27-year-old is hitting .256/.295/.426 overall. Tuesday, 8:54 pm

  • Trea Turner starting in CF on Tuesday night
    Trea Turner will start in center field Tuesday against the Indians.

    Advice: Turner saw some time in center field in the minors, but this will be his first start at the position in the majors. He should see more time there with Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) back from the disabled list. Turner is batting leadoff Tuesday while Ben Revere will play left and bat eighth. Jayson Werth is in the DH spot. Tuesday, 12:33 pm
  • Gordon on track to rejoin Marlins on Thu.
    Dee Gordon (suspension) remains on track to rejoin the Marlins on Thursday.

    Advice: Gordon is serving the final days of his 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. The speedy second baseman is 7-for-27 (.259) over seven games during his minor league tuneup games with Triple-A New Orleans. He got off to a slow start, but has hit safely in each of his last five games. He could make a big impact in fantasy leagues over the final two months. Tuesday, 6:29 am
  • Addison Russell starts, goes 0-for-3
    Addison Russell went 0-for-3 with a walk Monday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Russell started at shortstop tonight after leaving Sunday's game with a bruised left heel. Monday, 9:09 pm
  • Addison Russell exits game with heel injury
    Addison Russell exited Sunday's game against the Brewers with a bruised left heel.

    Advice: He fouled a ball off the heel Saturday and it got progressively sore on him Sunday. The Cubs are saying his removal was precautionary, so consider Russell day-to-day. Javier Baez is likely to fill in at shortstop for any amount of time that Russell might miss. Jul 24, 1:03 pm
  • Addison Russell exits with undisclosed injury
    Addison Russell departed Sunday's game against the Brewers with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Russell was pulled after flying out to end the fourth inning. He didn't suffer any obvious injury, but the Cubs should provide more on his status shortly. Jul 24, 12:47 pm
  • Rays demanding Profar if dealing with Texas
    Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that the Rays have demanded Jurickson Profar be included if they are to deal one of their available starting pitchers to the Rangers.

    Advice: Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Matt Moore are all said to be available for the right price, and it appears that price must include Profar if the Rangers are going to land a major upgrade to their starting rotation. The Rangers have said no thus far, but as things get closer to the trade deadline we'll see if their position changes. Jul 23, 11:32 am

  • Jace Peterson hits fifth homer
    Jace Peterson hit his fifth homer Friday against the Rockies' Jason Motte.

    Advice: Peterson lost his job early this year and was sent down for a time, but he's been one of the Braves' best players this year, amassing a .743 OPS in 171 at-bats. Of course, with just 17 RBI, 23 runs scored and one steal in his 57 games, he still hasn't been able to do much for fantasy leaguers. That doesn't seem likely to change. Jul 22, 9:08 pm
  • Jurickson Profar goes hitless in loss
    Jurickson Profar went 0-for-3 with a HBP on Friday to drop his average under .300 for the first time since his second game of the season.

    Advice: Profar is hitting .229 with just two extra-base hits (both homers) in 83 at-bats since June 11. He could get more consistent playing time now with Prince Fielder done, but the Rangers might get more production from giving those at-bats to Joey Gallo instead. Jul 22, 8:26 pm

  • Jean Segura goes deep in loss to Reds
    Jean Segura had a nice night at the dish in Friday's loss to the Reds, going 2-for-3 with a solo home run.

    Advice: Segura got the game started out with a bang, launching a leadoff home run off of Dan Straily. He has been a terrific catalyst atop the D'Backs lineup this season, slashing .314/.359/.451 with eight long balls and 38 RBI. Jul 22, 8:24 pm
  • Daniel Murphy leaves the yard in loss Friday
    Daniel Murphy clubbed his 19th home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Nationals past the Padres.

    Advice: Murphy's solo shot in the eighth inning pulled the Nats to within two runs at 5-3, but that would be as close as they would come. He continues to pummel the baseball, slashing .348/.387/.612 with 19 long balls, 70 RBI and three stolen bases in an impressive debut season with the Nats. Jul 22, 8:06 pm

  • Brad Miller not in Rays lineup on Friday
    Brad Miller is not in the Rays starting lineup for Friday's showdown against the Mariners.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against his former club with southpaw James Paxton on the hill for the Mariners. The hot-hitting Tim Beckham will start in his place at shortstop and bat seventh for the Rays on Friday. Jul 22, 3:44 pm

  • Rays receiving inquiries on Steve Pearce
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Rays "are getting some calls" on Steve Pearce and there's a "decent chance he gets moved by the deadline."

    Advice: It makes sense that there would be interest in Pearce, as he's a versatile player who's having a great year with a .322/.393/.522 batting line. He's also owed less than $2 million for the rest of the season before hitting free agency this winter. Crasnick lists the Giants and Indians as clubs that are "among potential fits" for Pearce, with the Mets also a potential possibility. Jul 22, 6:57 am

  • Diaz completes comeback with walk-off single
    Aledmys Diaz hit a walk-off single to complete the comeback against the Padres on Thursday, giving the Cardinals a 6-5 win.

    Advice: Down 5-1 in the eighth inning, the Cardinals scored four to tie the game, and Diaz came up with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning with a chance to be a hero. He did just that, lining a Carlos Villanueva pitch over the shortstop's head to bring home the winning run. Diaz finished 2-for-5 with two RBI in the game. The 25-year-old is hitting .319/.387/.533 with 13 homers, 51 RBI and 61 runs scored in a breakout rookie season. Jul 21, 8:53 pm
  • Perez has RBI double, run scored vs. Bucs
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored Thursday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Perez was one of the few Brewers able to get to Pirates starter Francisco Liriano, knocking the run-scoring double in the seventh inning. The multi-hit game was his third in a row, and Perez has now hit in five straight. The infielder is batting .279/.304/.422 in 57 games. Jul 21, 7:37 pm

  • Steve Pearce not in Rays lineup Thursday
    Steve Pearce is not in the Rays starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: It's just a routine day off for Pearce, who played in two straight games after being activated from the disabled list on Tuesday. Look for him back in his customary cleanup spot in the order on Friday. Jul 21, 4:04 pm
