  • Chris Davis hits solo homer, double in win
    Chris Davis went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Davis struck for a solo home run to lead off the sixth inning. That was just a throat-clearing for the rest of the frame, as the Orioles would score six more times before the Padres managed to extricate themselves from the mess. Over his last five games, Davis has driven in 10 runs. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .247/.359/.517 with 19 homers and 52 RBI across 271 at-bats. Yesterday, 11:17 pm
  • Myers connects for three-run homer in loss
    Wil Myers went 1-for-2 with a three-run homer, a steal and three walks in Tuesday's 11-7 loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Myers launched his three-run homer in the seventh inning. He has been nothing short of phenomenal in the month of June, swatting 11 homers and driving 31 runs this month alone. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .284/.343/.530 with 18 homers, 53 RBI and 11 steals across 296 at-bats. Yesterday, 11:10 pm
  • Nelson Cruz swats two-run homer in victory
    Nelson Cruz went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Cruz crushed a two-run shot off Pirates starter Jonathon Niese in the fifth inning. The dinger was his 20th of the season. In addition to that lofty mark, the veteran slugger is slashing a stupendous .284/.367/.537 and has driven in 53 runs. On the micro level, he has homered in back-to-back contests. Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Starling Marte hits RBI triple in loss to M's
    Starling Marte went 1-for-4 with an RBI triple in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Marte's RBI triple in the seventh came as part of a little two-run rally, but the Mariners held a 5-0 lead at the time, a lead which was never seriously in jeopardy. The star outfielder is hitting .325/.364/.489 with 19 doubles, six homers, 30 RBI and 20 steals over 274 at-bats. Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Granderson fighting through calf strain
    Mets manager Terry Collins said that Curtis Granderson is dealing with a "small" calf strain.

    Advice: Granderson was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Nationals after he had issues getting loose following a rain delay. This calf strain also kept him out of action on Sunday, but doesn't sound like a potential long-term injury. Unless the Mets indicate otherwise, Granderson should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Yesterday, 9:29 pm

  • Bryce Harper homers as Nats take down Mets
    Bryce Harper doubled and ripped a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Harper lined a Jerry Blevins offering into the right-field bullpen with one out in the fifth inning. It was his 16th longball of the season but just his third in June. The reigning National League MVP is sporting a disappointing .258 average but has made up for it and then some with a .403 on-base percentage. Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Billy Hamilton homers in loss to Cubs
    Billy Hamilton ripped a solo homer in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Hamilton broke up Jon Lester's shutout with a solo shot to lead off the eighth inning. The Reds then tied things up in the ninth before eventually falling in the 15th. The dinger was Hamilton's lone hit on the night. Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Thompson has two hits, steal versus Brewers
    Trayce Thompson went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Thompson's two hits snapped an 0-for-19 streak at the plate. The stolen base was his fifth of the season in six tries, but three of those steals came in a single game earlier this month. If he ran more, the 25-year-old would make for a more interesting fantasy player, but as it is he's batting a pedestrian .238/.319/.456 with 11 home runs, 27 RBI and 29 runs scored in 68 games. Yesterday, 8:52 pm
  • Lorenzo Cain diagnosed with hamstring strain
    Lorenzo Cain was diagnosed with a strained hamstring that forced his early exit from Tuesday's game.

    Advice: He'll be re-evaluated by team doctors on Wednesday before determining a course of action. Even if he avoids a trip to the disabled list, expect him to miss a game or two. Look for an update after Wednesday's exam. Yesterday, 8:36 pm
    5:15 pm @StL
  • Granderson pulled after long rain delay
    Curtis Granderson was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Nationals when he had difficulty getting loose after a long rain delay.

    Advice: The veteran outfielder has logged a lot of innings this season, so manager Terry Collins opted to play things safe when Granderson tightened up. He should be back in the lineup in the next day or two. Yesterday, 7:55 pm
    4:05 pm @Was
  • Giancarlo Stanton homers in losing cause
    Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Stanton got the scoring going in the second inning with a laser over the center field wall to plate two. He drove in another run with a single in the fifth. Stanton's slump looks to be in the rear view mirror, as he's now batting .400 with three longballs over his last 10 contests. Yesterday, 7:54 pm
  • Lorenzo Cain leaves with apparent injury
    Lorenzo Cain was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent leg injury.

    Advice: Cain lunged for first base in an attempt to beat out an infield single and appeared to tweak something. He also had his base hit taken away from him on video review, literally adding insult to injury. He'll get checked out in the clubhouse and the Royals should have an update on his status shortly. Yesterday, 7:28 pm
    5:15 pm @StL
  • MRI comes back clean, Beltran day-to-day
    Carlos Beltran (hamstring) is considered day-to-day after Tuesday's MRI came back clean.

    Advice: The 39-year-old outfielder was forced to leave Tuesday's game after his first at-bat due to tightness in his right hamstring, the Yankees appeared to have dodged a bullet here though. He may sit out on Wednesday as a precautionary measure, but expect the hot-hitting Beltran back in the lineup by the weekend. Yesterday, 6:58 pm
    4:05 pm vs Tex
  • Beltran heading for MRI on right hamstring
    Carlos Beltran was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rangers with a tight right hamstring.

    Advice: He'll head for a precautionary MRI to determine the extent of the damage. The Yankees can't afford to have his bat out of the lineup long, as the veteran slugger is hitting .297/.336/.570 with 19 homers and 53 RBI in a resurgent season. Yesterday, 5:25 pm
    4:05 pm vs Tex
  • Carlos Beltran leaves game with leg injury
    Carlos Beltran was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Rangers in the second inning with an apparent leg injury.

    Advice: Beltran singled in his first at-bat and then pulled up lame instead of going to second base. Team trainers and Joe Girardi came out immediately to look at Beltran who was quickly yanked. Look for the club to provide an update on the status of the hot-hitting outfielder shortly. Yesterday, 4:30 pm
    4:05 pm vs Tex
  • Josh Reddick returns to Athletics lineup
    Athletics activated OF Josh Reddick from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He'll rejoin the A's lineup immediately, batting third and playing right field against Albert Suarez and the Giants. Reddick had been sidelined since May 19 due to a fractured left thumb. He returns to a .322/.394/.466 line with five homers and 18 RBI in 44 games. Yesterday, 3:35 pm
  • Yasiel Puig not in Dodgers starting lineup
    Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

    Advice: While he has been on fire at the dish since his return, he'll get a breather against Chase Anderson on Tuesday. Howie Kendrick is starting in left field and batting second for the Dodgers. Yesterday, 1:55 pm
  • Alex Gordon not in Royals lineup on Tuesday
    Alez Gordon is not in the Royals starting lineup for Tuesday's showdown against the Cardinals.

    Advice: The Royals are easing Gordon back into action after missing over a month due to a broken bone in his hand. Whit Merrifield is getting the call in left field and batting leadoff while Christian Colon mans second base for the Royals on Tuesday. Yesterday, 1:27 pm
  • Brett Gardner not in Yankees starting lineup
    Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's simply a routine day of rest for Gardner as the Yankees square off against a difficult southpaw. Aaron Hicks will start in his place in left field and bat eighth for the Yankees. Yesterday, 1:06 pm
  • Mazara not in Tuesday's lineup
    Nomar Mazara is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Yankees.

    Advice: He'll sit against southpaw CC Sabathia. Shin-Soo Choo will start in right field while Ryan Rua plays left. Yesterday, 12:59 pm
  • Davis out of Indians' lineup Tuesday
    Rajai Davis is out of the Indians' lineup Tuesday versus the Braves.

    Advice: The Indians will go with Jose Ramirez, Tyler Naquin, and Lonnie Chisenhall from left to right in their outfielder versus right-hander Aaron Blair. Cleveland is looking for their 11th straight victory. Yesterday, 12:51 pm
  • Hunter Renfroe explodes for four hits Monday
    Padres OF prospect Hunter Renfroe contributed four hits Monday in a win for Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: He homered and drove in four runs as the Chihuahuas cruised to 13-3 win over Reno. Renfroe has gone ballistic this month, hitting an electric .330 with six blasts and 28 RBI. The former first-round pick leads the Pacific Coast League in home runs (18) and hits (102) this season. He's also second in RBI (67) and runs scored (58). Renfroe has nothing left to prove in the minors. Right now he's just waiting for a spot to open up in San Diego's outfield. Yesterday, 11:39 am

  • Brewers designate OF Presley for assignment
    Brewers designated OF Alex Presley for assignment.

    Advice: Jake Elmore was called up Tuesday and took his spot on the 40-man roster. Presley is batting just .198/.271/.293 over 47 games this season, but he could draw some interest on waivers. Yesterday, 11:26 am

    5:10 pm vs LAD
  • Billy McKinney plates four in Monday's victory
    Cubs OF prospect Billy McKinney tripled and drove in four runs Monday in a win for Double-A Tennessee.

    Advice: He probably could have done more damage but the game was called in the sixth inning due to rain. The 21-year-old got off to a slow start this year but has picked it up a bit over the last seven games. He's hit .435 during that span while raising his season average from .245 to .264. McKinney hit .300 in 377 at-bats last season between Tennessee and High-A Myrtle Beach. The former first-round pick joined the Cubs organization in 2014 in a trade that sent Jeff Samardzija to Oakland. Yesterday, 11:05 am

  • Jon Jay placed on DL with broken forearm
    Padres placed OF Jon Jay on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20, with a broken right forearm.

    Advice: Brutal news for Jay, who was hit in the right wrist/forearm area with a pitch on June 19. According to Marty Caswell of 1090 Sports Radio in San Diego, Padres general manager A.J. Preller said that the outfielder is slated to be re-evaluated in three weeks. The 31-year-old was batting .296/.345/.407 through 68 games this season, so he was shaping up to be a nice trade chip for San Diego prior to the injury. Yesterday, 10:46 am
    15-Day DL
    12:40 pm vs Bal
  • Zobrist with two hits in his last 23 at-bats
    Ben Zobrist is 2-for-23 (.087) over his last seven games.

    Advice: His average has tumbled from .316 to .295 in the process. Zobrist was held out of Saturday's lineup with a bruised left ankle, but he has been in there for the last two games. Yesterday, 6:18 am
  • Mike Trout homers, doubles twice
    Mike Trout homered and doubled twice in a losing cause Monday against the Astros.

    Advice: Trout had all three of the Angels' extra-base hits. He's 6-for-9 with two homers in two games after being moved up to the second spot in the lineup on Sunday and 13-for-22 with three homers in his last five games. Monday, 10:52 pm
  • Peter Bourjos goes 3-for-5 in win
    Peter Bourjos went 3-for-5 and scored twice against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: One of the Phillies' corner outfielders finally got hot, and Bourjos has assumed the second spot in the order as a result of his recent success. That doesn't make him a strong pickup in shallow mixed leagues, but he might eke out some value in deeper leagues. Monday, 10:08 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez hits 17th homer for Rockies
    Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk to lead the Rockies to a 9-5 win over the Blue Jays on Monday.

    Advice: In the 31 days since May 27, Carlos Gonzalez has 11 homers, 10 doubles and 31 RBI. It's the kind of run that figures to put him on the NL All-Star team for the first time since 2013 and the third time in his career. Monday, 9:30 pm
  • Reddick (thumb) on track to return Tuesday
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that Josh Reddick (thumb) is track to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

    Advice: Reddick, out since May 19 with fractured left thumb, is 3-for-20 (.150) with a homer over five rehab games with Triple-A Nashville. Assuming all goes well Monday, he's expected to return to the A's for Tuesday's game against the Giants. Reddick was batting .322/.394/.466 with five homers and 18 RBI in 44 games prior to the injury. He could become trade bait for Oakland next month if the two sides don't make progress on a contract extension. Joe Stiglich of hears that Reddick is on a preliminary list of players under consideration by the Giants. Monday, 5:52 pm
  • Chris Davis rocks grand slam in O's victory
    Chris Davis connected for a first-inning grand slam in Sunday's 12-5 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Davis launched his granny off of Rays starter Drew Smyly in the first inning. He would later add a single to finish 2-for-4. The slugger is working to a .240/.355/.498 triple-slash with 18 homers and an even 50 RBI over 267 at-bats. It will take a nice second-half power push to reach the 47 dingers he hit in 2015. Sunday, 2:35 pm
  • Myers fails to notch hit in shutout defeat
    Wil Myers went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: The Padres -- as a team -- managed just five singles in the shutout loss. With the 0-for-4 under his belt, Myers is hitting .283/.337/.522 with 17 homers, 50 RBI and 10 steals over 293 at-bats. The 10 steals are already the most he has recorded in a season. Sunday, 1:03 pm
  • A's, Josh Reddick to revisit extension talks
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Athletics and Josh Reddick plan to revisit contract extension talks before the trade deadline.

    Advice: The two sides were unable to work something out previously, as the A's wanted to give Reddick a three-year deal and the outfielder was seeking four years. If a long-term deal isn't worked out, there's a good chance the A's will trade Reddick next month. Rosenthal does note that the club is prepared to hang on to Reddick and give him a qualifying offer over the winter if it comes to that. Reddick is making $6.575 million this season in his final year before free agency. Sunday, 9:23 am
  • Curtis Granderson sitting out on Sunday
    Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Brandon Nimmo is in right field for his major league debut Sunday, and Kelly Johnson is in left and in the leadoff spot. The Mets are also resting Asdrubal Cabrera and Travis d'Arnaud, as Matt Reynolds is at shortstop and Rene Rivera is catching. Sunday, 7:58 am
    4:05 pm @Was
  • Billy Hamilton sitting out on Sunday
    Billy Hamilton is not in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Jose Peraza will handle center field. Sunday, 6:58 am
  • Jon Jay (wrist) held out again Sunday
    Jon Jay (wrist) remained out of the Padres' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Jay hasn't played since being hit on the right wrist with a pitch a week ago. Travis Jankowski is again in center field and the leadoff spot. Sunday, 6:52 am
    15-Day DL
    12:40 pm vs Bal
  • CarGo (wrist) doubles twice in return
    Carlos Gonzalez (wrist) doubled twice in five trips to the plate in his return to the lineup Saturday.

    Advice: CarGo left Thursday's game and sat out Friday with a minor wrist ailment, but he appears to be good to go. He's sporting a .314/.358/.551 batting line this season. Sunday, 5:13 am
  • Trout has three hits, home run
    Mike Trout finished Saturday's game 3-for-5 and hit his 15th home run of the season.

    Advice: Trout now has 50 RBI and 50 runs scored. He has the lowest strikeout rate of his career and now has 47 walks to go with his 60 strikeouts. He has 154 career home runs and is only 24 years old. His .308/.408/.540 slash line is very close to his career average. Saturday, 11:38 pm
  • Gordon homers in first game off DL
    Alex Gordon homered and doubled in his first game back from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: Gordon was having a very poor season before he broke his hand a month ago. Now back in action, perhaps he will start to generate some value for any patient fantasy owners who held onto him despite the injury and poor performance. Today's game boosts his line to .218/.322/.361 with five home runs in 147 at-bats. Saturday, 8:05 pm
  • Puig stays hot with two hits on Saturday
    Yasiel Puig finished 2-for-4 on Saturday to continue his hot hitting since coming off the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Puig is now 7-for-15 in his last four games. The mini hot streak has boosted his line to .254/.296/.383 on the season. He still has a long way to go if he is going to return to the All Star level of production he provided his first two seasons in the majors. Saturday, 7:16 pm
  • Stanton collects three RBI in win over Cubs
    Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with three RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Stanton had an RBI single in the fifth inning before swatting a two-run double in the seventh. The outfielder continues to punish the baseball in recent days, as he has five multi-hit games in his last eight starts. Stanton is batting .219/.319/.443 with 14 homers, 37 RBI and 30 runs scored overall. Saturday, 5:41 pm
  • Beltran has two hits, RBI in win over Twins
    Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: Beltran tied things up with an RBI single in the fifth inning before Starlin Castro put the Yankees ahead on a fielder’s choice in the eighth. The veteran outfielder has hit safely in four straight games and six out of his last seven as his resurgent campaign continues. He’s batting .290/.328/.573 with 19 home runs and 53 RBI through 70 games this season. Saturday, 1:10 pm
    4:05 pm vs Tex
  • Royals activate Alex Gordon from 15-day DL
    Royals activated OF Alex Gordon from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Gordon has been sidelined since May 23 due to a broken scaphoid bone in his right hand, but he was cleared to return after batting .364 (8-for-22) with a homer, a double, and five walks over six minor league rehab games. He'll return to a .211/.319/.331 batting line over 42 games. Saturday, 11:41 am
  • Zobrist (ankle) not in Saturday's lineup
    Ben Zobrist is not in Saturday's lineup against the Marlins.

    Advice: Zobrist suffered a bruised left ankle when he was hit by a pitch on Friday. Consider him day-to-day. Javy Baez will start at second base and bat fifth against Paul Clemens. Saturday, 9:38 am
  • Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) out again Saturday
    Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) remains out of the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

    Advice: Jay hasn't played since he was hit in the wrist area with a pitch last Sunday and a stint on the disabled list remains a possibility. Travis Jankowski will start in center field again and bat leadoff Saturday. Saturday, 8:34 am
    15-Day DL
    12:40 pm vs Bal
  • Myers homers, drives in five in win over Reds
    Wil Myers went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI on Friday night versus the Reds.

    Advice: The home run was his 17th. He has a .289 batting average to go with 49 runs, 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases. After three injury-plagued seasons, the 25-year-old Myers is finally turning into the fantasy stud we all expected when he was a prospect. He may surpass his career high of 335 at-bats before the All Star break. Friday, 8:49 pm
  • Hamilton gets two hits and steals a base
    Billy Hamilton netted two hits, a run, a walk and his 17th stolen base of the season on Friday.

    Advice: One of the hits was a triple. After a brutally bad season at the plate last year, Hamilton has made modest strides this year. He will never help his fantasy owners in the home run or RBI categories, but his ability to steal bases by the dozen could make him a fantasy star if he could just score some runs and hit for a decent batting average. He hit .226 last year and has improved to .261 this year. Friday, 8:41 pm
  • Ben Zobrist diagnosed with bruised ankle
    Ben Zobrist was diagnosed with a bruised left ankle after going for X-rays.

    Advice: Zobrist was forced to exit Friday's game against the Marlins after he was hit in the foot by a pitch. He'll likely have to sit out Saturday's game, but consider him day-to-day for now. Friday, 8:07 pm
  • Marte (foot) has two hits in return to lineup
    Starling Marte (foot) went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a run scored in his return to the lineup Friday.

    Advice: Marte was limited to pinch hitting duties over the past two days due to a sore foot. He still appeared to be favoring the injury a bit on Friday, but he’s feeling good enough to play right now. Friday, 7:42 pm
  • Puig homers in win over Pirates
    Yasiel Puig went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in a win over the Pirates on Friday.

    Advice: His sixth-inning blast off Jared Hughes landed in the second deck in left field. It was his sixth homer of the season and his first since coming off the disabled list earlier this week. He's actually hit safely in all three games since returning. Puig won’t be in the eighth spot in the order for long if he keeps swinging the bat like this. Friday, 7:42 pm
  • Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) out again Friday
    Jon Jay (wrist, forearm) is out of the Padres' lineup again Friday versus the Reds.

    Advice: Jay was hit by a pitch last Sunday and is still dealing with some swelling. He will see a hand specialist upon returning to San Diego next week and the Padres haven't ruled out a potential stint on the disabled list. Friday, 3:09 pm
    15-Day DL
    12:40 pm vs Bal
  • Carlos Gonzalez (wrist) sitting out on Friday
    Carlos Gonzalez (wrist) is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

    Advice: CarGo tweaked his right wrist on a swing Thursday and had to be lifted from the game. It looks like a minor thing at this point, but he could need a few days off. Ryan Raburn is in right field. Friday, 2:12 pm
  • Nomar Mazara sitting out on Friday
    Nomar Mazara is absent from the Rangers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The Rangers are going with a right-handed heavy lineup against David Price. Ryan Rua is in left field. Friday, 1:02 pm
  • Starling Marte (foot) back in Pirates' lineup
    Starling Marte (foot) is back in the Pirates' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Marte hasn't started since leaving Tuesday's game with a sore foot. He's batting second and playing left field. The Pirates are also resting Josh Harrison, as Sean Rodriguez is handling second base. Friday, 12:40 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez nursing minor wrist injury
    Carlos Gonzalez suffered a right wrist injury in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: CarGo struck out with the bases loaded in the eighth inning and was then removed in a double switch in the ninth. Rockies team doctor Tom Noonan looked at Gonzalez after the game and believes the injury is minor, but the outfielder will be re-evaluated on Friday. "I sprained it a little bit, and it’s sore," Gonzalez said Thursday. "We will see how it feels tomorrow, but I don’t think it’s anything major." Friday, 8:46 am
  • Stanton homers, drives in two to best Cubs
    Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored as the Marlins beat the Cubs 4-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: Stanton hit a solo homer in the fourth inning and added an RBI single in the eighth. He's been on a tear at the plate in the last week, going 10-for-25 with two homers, three RBI and five runs scored. The good stretch, while not only encouraging for Stanton owners, has raised his overall line to .216/.314/.441. Thursday, 7:35 pm
  • Yankees open to re-signing Carlos Beltran?
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post expects the Yankees to extend a qualifying offer to Carlos Beltran when he reaches free agency this offseason.

    Advice: The one-year qualifying offer would likely pay between $16.5-17 million. Of course, New York could change its mind if Beltran cools off and he could even be floated as trade bait if the Yankees become sellers at the trade deadline. But if anyone can afford to pay $17 million for a 40-year-old outfielder, it's the Yankees. The veteran has been the team's best hitter by far this year with 19 HR and 51 RBI through 68 games. Thursday, 4:49 pm
    4:05 pm vs Tex
  • Nelson Cruz homers twice against Tigers
    Nelson Cruz hit a pair of solo homers against the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Cruz isn't quite on last year's pace, but he does have 18 homers in 71 games. Plus, because he's hitting in a better lineup, he has 48 RBI, giving him a realistic chance of topping his career high of 108. Last year, he had 93 RBI to go along with his 44 homers, since there just wasn't much happening in front of him in the order. Thursday, 2:07 pm
  • Starling Marte appears as pinch-hitter
    Starling Marte flied out as a pinch-hitter Thursday against the Giants.

    Advice: Marte also came off the bench yesterday. He's been unable to start the last two days because of left foot soreness. Thursday, 1:17 pm
  • Jon Jay (forearm) out again Thursday vs. CIN
    Jon Jay (forearm) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Jay hasn't appeared in a game for the Padres since suffering a bruised right forearm last Sunday. He's still considered day-to-day. Travis Jankowski will bat leadoff and start in center field Thursday versus the Reds. Thursday, 12:29 pm
    15-Day DL
    12:40 pm vs Bal
  • Marte (foot) out of Bucs lineup again Thurs.
    Starling Marte (foot) is not in the Pirates' starting lineup Thursday against the Giants.

    Advice: Marte was also held out of the starting lineup Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's game with pain in his left foot. He did pinch-hit on Wednesday, which is usually a good indication that the injury is not serious. Sean Rodriguez is starting in left field Thursday. Thursday, 7:22 am
  • Starling Marte (ankle) serves as pinch hitter
    Starling Marte (foot) grounded out as a pinch-hitter Wednesday versus the Giants.

    Advice: Marte was held out of the starting lineup after leaving Tuesday's game with pain in his left foot. It's clearly nothing too serious, but he may also have to be limited to bench work in Thursday afternoon's series finale. Thursday, 5:33 am
  • Puig's long race home gives Dodgers a win
    Yasiel Puig came all of the way around to score on a single to center in the bottom of the ninth, the result of a Michael Taylor error, and gave the Dodgers a 4-3 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Puig hustled right out of the box on his grounder up the middle with one out and Howie Kendrick at first base, pausing only slightly to clap his hands and congratulate himself on the way up the line. It was as he was touching first that he saw the ball get by Taylor in center, and he turned on the jets, racing all of the way around the bases to turn a 3-2 deficit into a victory. It was Puig's second hit of the game. He didn't get an RBI on the play, but it probably didn't matter to him. Wednesday, 11:02 pm
  • Nelson Cruz getting the night off Wednesday
    Nelson Cruz is getting the night off Wednesday.

    Advice: Adam Lind will serve as the Mariners' DH and hit sixth against Tigers right-hander Michael Fulmer. Wednesday, 12:57 pm
  • Starling Marte (ankle) out Wednesday vs. SF
    Starling Marte (foot) is not in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Marte was lifted from Tuesday's game after experiencing pain in his left foot while trying to chase down a Ramiro Pena triple in the top of the eighth inning. He's considered day-to-day for now. Gregory Polanco will start in left field and Matt Joyce will play right on Wednesday night against the Giants. Wednesday, 12:10 pm
  • Stanton out of Marlins lineup on Wednesday
    Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Braves.

    Advice: Stanton is batting .170/.241/.283 with 45 strikeouts over his last 106 at-bats. Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and bat leadoff Wednesday afternoon against Atlanta right-hander John Gant. Wednesday, 7:19 am
  • Alex Gordon (wrist) due back this weekend
    Alex Gordon (wrist) is on track to be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

    Advice: Gordon is 4-for-11 (364) with a homer, a double, and two RBI through three rehab games with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He'll probably play one or two more rehab games before returning to Kansas City. Gordon landed on the disabled list May 23 after suffering a broken scaphoid bone in his right hand during a costly outfield collision with Mike Moustakas. Moose is done for the year with a torn ACL. Wednesday, 6:24 am
  • Brett Gardner scores twice in losing effort
    Brett Gardner went 2-for-3 and scored a pair of runs as the Yankees fell to the Rockies on Tuesday night in New York.

    Advice: Gardner also drew a pair of walks in the contest, reaching base safely in four of his five plate appearances. He has done a nice job once again as a catalyst atop the Yankees lineup this season, slashing .258/.370/.367 with five homers, 41 runs scored and 11 stolen bases. Tuesday, 10:28 pm
  • Harper launches solo homer in loss to Dodgers
    Bryce Harper went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Harper connected for a solo homer off Dodgers starter Scott Kazmir in the first inning. The dinger was his 15th of the season. Those 15 bombs, plus his 43 RBI, are nice enough, but after a scalding-hot start to the 2016 campaign, Harper has cooled off to a relatively modest .258/.403/.498. For reference's sake, when he won the NL MVP in 2015, that came on the strength of a .330/.460/.649 triple-slash. Harper owners shouldn't panic, but disappointment is a reasonable emotion to feel given expectations. Still plenty of time for the young superstar to right the mostly-upright ship. Tuesday, 10:04 pm
  • Trout has RBI single, stolen base vs. Astros
    Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a stolen base against the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Trout also hit his second triple of the season in the loss. The stolen base was his 10th of the season, ensuring his fifth consecutive season with double-digit homers and steals. The 24-year-old is batting .301/.404/.537 with 14 homers, 48 RBI and 47 runs scored on the season. Tuesday, 9:45 pm
  • Giancarlo Stanton goes hitless in loss to ATL
    Giancarlo Stanton had a rough night at the plate in Tuesday's loss to the Braves, going 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts.

    Advice: Stanton left six men on base in the game. He had been showing signs of life at the plate in recent days, but looked completely helpless against Bud Norris and the Braves bullpen on Tuesday. He's now hitting a disappointing .211/.311/.427 on the season with 13 homers and 32 RBI. Tuesday, 9:30 pm
  • Starling Marte left game with foot discomfort
    Starling Marte departed Tuesday's game against the Giants with left foot discomfort.

    Advice: He dealt with a left ankle injury earlier this month, but it's not clear if this new foot thing is related. Marte pulled up in pain after trying to chase down a Ramiro Pena triple in the top of the eighth inning Tuesday. He will be reevaluated on Wednesday. Tuesday, 7:54 pm
  • Starling Marte departs game with leg injury
    Starling Marte left Tuesday's game against the Giants with an apparent leg injury.

    Advice: Marte came up hurting after trying to chase down a Ramiro Pena triple in the top of the eighth inning. Marte brought a stellar .333/.374/.502 batting line into the game. It'd be a huge loss for the Pirates if he requires a stint on the 15-day disabled list. Tuesday, 7:07 pm
  • Trayce Thompson out of LAD lineup Tues.
    Trayce Thompson is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Yasiel Puig will start in right field and bat seventh in his return from the disabled list. Thompson went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Monday against the Nationals and is batting just .212 over his last 30 games. Tuesday, 2:54 pm
  • Jon Jay sitting Tuesday with bruised forearm
    Jon Jay is out of the Padres' lineup Tuesday after bruising his right forearm Sunday.

    Advice: He'll be reevaluated on Wednesday, per Padres manager Andy Green. Jay has been a nice little surprise for San Diego this season, slashing .296/.345/.407 with an NL-leading 24 doubles in 68 games. He'll make for a nice trade chip next month if he can stay healthy. Tuesday, 2:46 pm
    15-Day DL

  • LAD activate Yasiel Puig (hamstring) from DL
    Dodgers activated OF Yasiel Puig from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Puig will return to the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Nationals after missing the last 17 days because of a strained left hamstring. He went 5-for-12 (.417) with a homer and three walks on his five-game minor league rehab assignment. Tuesday, 2:05 pm
  • Reddick (thumb) begins rehab assignment
    Josh Reddick (thumb) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Reddick was tentatively scheduled to begin his rehab assignment on Sunday, but it ultimately got pushed back to Monday.

  • Trayce Thompson goes 0-for-4 against Nats
    Trayce Thompson went 0-for-4 and struck out three times Monday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Thompson is hitting just .212 over his last 30 games, though he does have five homers and 15 walks over that span. His decline is all BABIP, and there's nothing so far to suggest he's overmatched. Still, he should be losing some playing time against right-handers with Yasiel Puig back. Monday, 10:10 pm
  • Stanton finally breaks through for 13th homer
    Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with a home run in Monday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: The home run was Stanton's first in almost a month, as he'd been in a 15-game homerless drought dating back to May 24. It was his 13th home run of the season. Stanton has been showing signs of life in recent days, going 8-for-16 in the four-game series with the Rockies to raise his overall line to .216/.317/.437 in 59 games. Monday, 8:00 pm
  • Puig (hamstring) to be activated Tuesday
    Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: There was some thought that Puig would return on Monday, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said they'll wait another day before bringing him back. The 25-year-old went 5-for-12 (.417) with a homer and three walks over five games during his minor league rehab assignment. He has been sidelined since June 2 with a left hamstring strain. Monday, 4:35 pm
  • Marte (face) goes 3-for-5 in return Sun.
    Starling Marte (face) went 3-for-5 with a triple and two RBI in his return to the Pirates' starting lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

  • Carlos Gonzalez hits lost cause double
    Carlos Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Gonzalez's double -- No. 14 on the season -- stood as the Rockies' only extra-base hit in the 3-0 loss. This season, the slugger is slashing a superlative .313/.357/.556 with 15 homers and 37 RBI in 259 at-bats. Jun 19, 2:17 pm
  • Myers goes 3-for-4 with a home run Saturday
    Wil Myers cranked his 16th home run as part of a 3-for-4 day at the plate with three RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Padres' 7-3 come-from-behind victory over the Nationals on Saturday.

    Advice: In addition to the first-inning homer, Myers had a key double in the Padres' six-run eighth inning rally. The young outfielder is finally healthy this year and it shows. He now rocks a .291/.333/.537 line with 16 longballs, 45 runs, 44 RBI and nine stolen bases. He is a strong contributor in all five fantasy scoring categories. Jun 18, 11:01 pm
