  • Eugenio Suarez hits 17th homer
    Eugenio Suarez had a two-run homer and a double Monday against the Giants.

    Advice: It's disappointing that Suarez's OBP has been hanging right around .300 for much of the year, but he's up to 17 homers now. It's too bad those homers have come with just seven doubles and a 100/27 K/BB ratio in 345 at-bats. Yesterday, 10:53 pm
  • Tyler Saladino delivers game-winner
    Tyler Saladino went 2-for-4 with a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth as the White Sox edged the Cubs 5-4 on Monday.

    Advice: Saladino is outhitting Brett Lawrie over the last month and is the superior defensive second baseman, so maybe it's time to give him a crack at the starting job. He wouldn't do much for fantasy leaguers if it happens, but as far as the White Sox are concerned, he just needs to be a better player than Lawrie. Right now, Saladino has a .722 OPS in 130 AB, while Lawrie is at .723 in 351 AB. Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Javier Baez goes 3-for-4, homers
    Javier Baez finished 3-for-4 with a homer and a doubles Monday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Most of Baez's success this year has come off lefties, so it was nice to see him collect extra-base hits against a pair of righties in this one. It could help him earn some more playing time. Yesterday, 9:10 pm

  • Addison Russell starts, goes 0-for-3

  • Jose Iglesias blasts two-run homer Monday
    Jose Iglesias singled and smacked a two-run homer in Monday's victory over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Drew Pomeranz had held the Tigers off the scoreboard until Iglesias launched a towering blast over the Green Monster with one out in the sixth inning. He also singled and scored in the eighth. Iglesias has batted second each of the last two nights with Cameron Maybin sitting out with a back ailment. Yesterday, 8:31 pm
  • Andres Blanco to have surgery on finger
    Andres Blanco will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a fractured left index finger.

    Advice: Blanco suffered the injury on a slide into third base on Sunday. Phillies manager Pete Mackanin is optimistic that he could be back in six weeks. Yesterday, 1:21 pm

  • Phillies recall Taylor Featherston from AAA
    Phillies recalled INF Taylor Featherston from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Featherston will take over for Andres Blanco, who landed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a fractured index finger. Featherston, 26, was batting .264/.320/.446 with 12 home runs and 32 RBI through 87 games this season at the Triple-A level. Yesterday, 11:35 am
  • Phillies place Andres Blanco (finger) on DL
    Phillies placed INF Andres Blanco on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left index finger.

    Advice: Blanco suffered the injury Sunday in the Phillies' loss to the Pirates when Gregory Polanco slid into his hand at third base in the bottom of the fifth inning. Blanco could very well be done for the season. Yesterday, 11:32 am

  • Yankees acquire Torres in Chapman trade
    Yankees acquired SS Gleyber Torres, RHP Adam Warren, OF Billy McKinney, and OF Rashad Crawford from the Cubs in exchange for LHP Aroldis Chapman.

    Advice: Torres is the centerpiece of this deal for the Yankees, who could be launching into a kind of firesale as they attempt a rolling rebuild. Torres, 19, has batted .275/.359/.433 with nine home runs, 47 RBI, 19 stolen bases, and 62 runs scored over 94 games this season in High-A ball while playing excellent defense at the shortstop position. Baseball America,, and Baseball Prospectus all ranked him a top-50 prospect leading into 2016. It's a great get for New York. Yesterday, 11:24 am

  • Bregman at 3B and hitting sixth in MLB debut
    Alex Bregman is starting at third base and batting sixth Monday in his MLB debut.

    Advice:'s Richard Justice expects that Bregman will play left field on Tuesday and DH on Wednesday. His primary spot will probably be third base, but the 22-year-old top prospect is athletic enough to handle just about any position on the diamond. He was slashing .306/.406/.580 with 20 home runs and 61 RBI in 80 games this season between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Fresno. Yesterday, 10:10 am
  • Astros officially promote Bregman from AAA
    Astros purchased the contract of INF Alex Bregman from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Bregman will join the Astros ahead of Monday night's series opener against the visiting Yankees. The 22-year-old has been one of the best hitters in the minors this season, boasting a .306/.406/.580 batting line with 20 home runs and 61 RBI in 80 games between Double-A and Triple-A. He can also steal bases. Bregman should see everyday-like action between third base and left field and needs to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues. Yesterday, 9:28 am
  • Gleyber Torres part of Cubs offer for Chapman
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres is part of the Cubs' offer to the Yankees for closer Aroldis Chapman.

    Advice: That explains why Torres was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday at High-A Myrtle Beach. Heyman says the offer remains on the table for the Yankees, who were said to be close to finalizing a Chapman trade on Saturday night. Chicago may be trying to work out an extension with the impending free agent left-hander. Torres, 19, has batted .275/.359/.433 with nine home runs, 47 RBI, 19 stolen bases, and 62 runs scored over 94 games this season in the Carolina League. He was a consensus top-50 prospect leading into the 2016 campaign. Sunday, 4:32 pm

  • Story slugs 27th home run, Rockies top ATL
    Trevor Story slugged his 27th homer of the year Sunday in the Rockies' 7-2 victory over the Braves.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the fourth inning off Atlanta rookie Tyrell Jenkins. Story also doubled and scored in the first inning, finishing 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI. Only two middle infielders in major league history have registered 30-homer seasons by age 23: Alex Rodriguez and Nomar Garciaparra. Story is well on his way to becoming the third. Sunday, 4:20 pm
  • Astros to call up top prospect Alex Bregman
    The Astros announced that they will call up top prospect Alex Bregman prior to Monday's game versus the Yankees.

    Advice: Finally, after weeks (months, really) of speculation, Bregman is set to make his major league debut. Astros manager A.J. Hinch admitted that he's not sure yet where Bregman will play but the former first-rounder has seen time at shortstop, third base and left field in the minors this season. Rest assured, he'll play regularly wherever it may be. Bregman has batted .306/.406/.580 with 20 homers and seven steals between Double- and Triple-A this season and needs to be picked up in any fantasy leagues where he's still available. Sunday, 2:31 pm
  • Andres Blanco (finger) headed to DL
    Andres Blanco will be placed on the disabled list after being diagnosed with a fractured left index finger on Sunday.

    Advice: Blanco suffered the injury when he was spiked. It's unclear at this point how long the utility infielder might be sidelined. Sunday, 1:36 pm

  • Reyes notches RBI triple in win over Marlins
    Jose Reyes went 1-for-5 with an RBI triple in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Reyes showed that despite his age (33), he still brings a strong speed element to play whenever he steps to the dish. In Sunday's case, he collected an RBI triple against Marlins starter Jose Urena in the third inning. Since the Mets called him up on July 5, the embattled third baseman is slashing .242/.284/.516 with three homers, eight RBI and three steals over the course of 62 at-bats. He has quietly picked up hits in eight of his last 10 games. He is worth a shot in NL-only and deeper mixed-league formats at this juncture. Sunday, 1:34 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. Sunday, 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. Sunday, 12:47 pm
  • J.J. Hardy not in Sunday's lineup
    J.J. Hardy is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears to be a simple day off. Ryan Flaherty is at shortstop. Sunday, 8:37 am
    4:05 pm vs Col
  • Zack Cozart getting a breather Sunday
    Zack Cozart is absent from the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a day off. Jose Peraza is filling in for Cozart at shortstop. Eugenio Suarez is also receiving a breather, as Ivan DeJesus Jr. is at third base. Sunday, 7:54 am
  • Story homers twice, scores thrice, nets 5 RBI
    Trevor Story stuffed the box score on Saturday, going 4-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base.

    Advice: He hit a two-run homer in the second inning, then added a solo shot in the eighth. The rookie now has 26 longballs on the season, which is a lot more than he ever hit in a minor league season. He is batting .272/.347/.580 with 63 runs, 67 RBI and seven steals. He has an extremely high strikeout rate, but that has not interfered with his stellar overall production yet. Saturday, 9:49 pm
  • Bogaerts' four-hit game not enough for Sox
    Xander Bogaerts finished 4-for-6 with a run scored in a loss to the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: The Red Sox pounded out 15 hits on the night, led by Bogaerts' four, but the Twins won the slugfest. That wasn't by fault of the 23-year-old Bogaerts, who is 11-for-22 in his last five games. The ultra-talented young shortstop is hitting .329/.385/.474 with 61 RBI and 72 runs scored, sixth-most in the American League, on the season. Saturday, 9:47 pm
  • Nunez has three RBI, stolen base against Sox
    Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-6 with three RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Nunez had an RBI single in the second inning and chipped in a two-run single in the Twins' five-run seventh inning. The stolen base was his 24th of the season, already a single-season best for the 29-year-old. It's been a year to remember all around for Nunez, who's hitting .302/.328/.452 overall. Saturday, 9:43 pm
    5:10 pm vs Atl
  • Lindor goes 2-for-4 with a run scored on Sat.
    Francisco Lindor stroked two singles in four at-bats and scored a run on Saturday.

    Advice: He is batting .304 with 12 homers, 68 runs, 49 RBI and 13 steals. Lindor has hit better in the majors than he ever did in the minors. He has been a very productive fantasy shortstop the last two seasons and is still only 22 years old. Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Drew strokes walk-off RBI double on Saturday
    Stephen Drew was called upon to pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth inning and stroked a game-winning RBI double as the Nationals won in walk-off fashion on Saturday.

    Advice: Drew has been relegated to part-time duty this season but has hit well when given the chance. After being one of the game's worst batters the last two years, Drew is hitting .255/.313/.539 this year. He has seven home runs in only 103 at-bats. Saturday, 7:48 pm

  • Correa hits 15th home run in win over Angels
    Carlos Correa went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: Correa hit a solo shot, his 15th homer of the year, off reliever Jhoulys Chacin in the fifth inning. After a stellar June, the homer was just Correa's second this month, a month in which he's batting .257. The talented 21-year-old is hitting .266/.363/.470 with 63 RBI, 50 runs scored and 10 stolen bases overall. Saturday, 7:27 pm
  • Jhonny Peralta (thumb) nearing swings
    Jhonny Peralta (thumb) said he's hoping to begin swinging a bat in the next day or two.

    Advice: Peralta was placed on the 15-day disabled list July 19 with ongoing discomfort in his surgically-repaired left thumb. It sounds like he could be ready in mid-August, but this has become a lingering thing and it's possible there are more setbacks to come. Saturday, 4:55 pm

  • Diamondbacks place Nick Ahmed on 15-day DL
    Diamondbacks placed INF Nick Ahmed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hip impingement.

    Advice: Ahmed may have been expendable anyways with Chris Owings returning from the disabled list. He was hitting just .218/.265/.299 with a 58/15 K/BB ratio in 284 at-bats with the Diamondbacks before suffering the hip injury. Saturday, 12:21 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. Saturday, 11:32 am

  • Jung Ho Kang not in Pirates lineup Saturday
    Jung Ho Kang is not in the Pirates starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: As well as dealing with some off-field issues, Kang's performance at the plate has fallen off considerably in recent weeks. David Freese is starting in his place at third base on Saturday and will bat fifth against Aaron Nola and the Phillies. Saturday, 9:11 am
    4:05 pm vs Sea
  • Shawn O'Malley starting at shortstop Saturday
    Shawn O'Malley is starting at shortstop and batting ninth for the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: He gets the challenge of facing Jays' knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. With Ketel Marte on the disabled list, the door is open for O'Malley to see some extra time in the infield over the next week or so. Saturday, 7:08 am
  • Mariners place Ketel Marte on 15-day DL
    Mariners placed SS Ketel Marte on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 20, with mononucleosis.

    Advice: Marte has already missed a week of action with the illness, so while they wait on him to get well they'll utilize his roster spot elsewhere. David Rollins was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move to provide bullpen depth. Saturday, 6:20 am
    15-Day DL

  • Corey Seager goes 4-for-7 against Cards
    Corey Seager went 4-for-7 and knocked in a run against the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: Seager didn't hit for the kind of average we were hoping for early on, but he's all of the way up to .307 for the season now. He's batting .331 with 15 homers in his last 66 games. Friday, 10:34 pm
  • Trevor Story hits 24th homer
    Trevor Story collected his 24th homer Friday against the Braves.

    Advice: Story has now matched Troy Tulowitzki's homer total from his rookie season in 2007. The only shortstops to hit more than 24 as rookies were Nomar Garciaparra (30 in 1997) and Cal Ripken Jr. (28 while splitting time between short and third in 1982). Those two were Rookie of the Year winners. Time will tell is Story will be, too. Friday, 9:11 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. Friday, 8:26 pm

  • Reyes has three hits in win over Marlins
    Jose Reyes filled up the box score Friday against the Marlins by going 3-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored, and a stolen base.

    Advice: Reyes had a double and a pair of singles. He scored on a pair of sacrifice flies by Yoenis Cespedes. This was Reyes’ first three-hit game of the season and his first multi-hit game since July 10. He’s batting .250/.298/.538 overall. The Mets could use more games like this one from him.

  • Corey Seager (flu) returns to Dodgers' lineup
    Corey Seager (flu) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Seager missed three days of action with the flu bug, but he's evidently feeling better. He's at shortstop and hitting second against Michael Wacha and the Cardinals. Friday, 1:28 pm
  • Ketel Marte (mono) headed to disabled list
    Ketel Marte will be placed on the disabled list after being diagnosed with mononucleosis.

    Advice: Now it makes more sense why he's missed a week of action with what had been described as a stomach bug. Marte shouldn't need much more than another week before being activated. Shawn O'Malley and Luis Sardinas will share shortstop in his absence. Friday, 1:02 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm @Pit
  • Ketel Marte (illness) sitting out again
    Ketel Marte (illness) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Friday.

  • Bogaerts has big night as Red Sox roll to win
    Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored in a lopsided win over the Twins on Thursday.

    Advice: The first four hitters in the Sox lineup finished 14-for-19 in the one-sided affair, and Bogaerts was right in the middle of the action with a two-run double in the third inning. The 23-year-old is hitting .324/.380/.470 with 61 RBI and 71 runs scored this year, and he's got 11 homers and 11 steals to boot. Thursday, 7:03 pm
  • Bregman in left field again Thursday
    Alex Bregman will start in left field for the second straight Thursday with Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Bregman made his first ever start in left field on Wednesday, as the Astros look ahead to where he could fit in the majors. Of course, the club just signed Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel, who figures to play third base once he's ready for the majors. With the way he's hitting, Bregman figures to make it to the majors first, but the added versatility will help his chances of getting regular at-bats down the stretch. Thursday, 2:23 pm
  • Kang out of lineup Thursday
    Jung Ho Kang is not in Thursday's lineup versus the Brewers.

    Advice: Kang has completely fallen apart at the plate recently, hitting just .159 with zero homers and a .479 OPS over his last 16 games. David Freese is starting at third base Thursday. Thursday, 1:17 pm
    4:05 pm vs Sea
  • Bregman notches three hits in left field debut
    Astros SS/3B prospect Alex Bregman smashed three hits while starting in left field Wednesday in a win for Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: The 22-year-old has produced at least two hits in each of his last three games. Playing left field, a position Bregman had never played until Wednesday, is an interesting wrinkle in his development. Bregman is a shortstop by trade but has recently focused on third base because it's his clearest path to the major leagues. Now that Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel has been added to the mix, it might not be a bad idea for Bregman to get comfortable playing the outfield as well. The new top prospect in baseball should make his big league debut later this year. Thursday, 8:23 am
  • Seager (flu) remains out Thursday vs. Nats
    Corey Seager (flu) remains absent from the Dodgers' lineup Thursday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Seager is still battling that nasty flu bug that seems to be traveling from clubhouse to clubhouse. Chris Taylor will start at shortstop Thursday in Washington, D.C. Thursday, 6:52 am
  • Hardy nets two hits in Orioles loss Wednesday
    J.J. Hardy finished the game 2-for-4 in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hardy spent six weeks on the DL in May and June and hasn't done much since his return. He is batting an empty .264 with four home runs and 20 RBI on the season. His days as a good fantasy shortstop option are in the rear-view mirror and fading fast. Wednesday, 7:28 pm
    4:05 pm vs Col
  • Corey Seager (flu) remains out Wednesday
    Corey Seager (flu) remains out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Seager is one of the many major leaguers battling a stomach virus. Charlie Culberson will start at shortstop and bat eighth Wednesday versus the Nationals. Wednesday, 12:43 pm
  • Alex Bregman may start in LF on Wednesday
    Alex Bregman may get a start in left field on Wednesday at Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: He played third base Tuesday for the first time since his promotion from Double-A Corpus Christi. Bregman is adding some versatility while he knocks down the door for a callup to the major leagues. He's batting .312/.413/.601 with 20 home runs and seven stolen bases in 76 games this season between Double-A and Triple-A. Wednesday, 11:17 am
  • Ketel Marte (ankle, flu) out again Wednesday
    Ketel Marte (flu, ankle) is out of the Mariners' starting lineup again on Wednesday.

  • Francisco Lindor goes 2-for-4, homers
    Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and three runs scored Tuesday against the Royals.

    Advice: Lindor has been one of the AL's steadiest hitters this year, coming in at .293 in April, .316 in May, .301 in June and .293 so far in July. It's just too bad he's slowed down on the basepaths; he's 0-for-1 stealing bases in July. He had 10 steals the first two months and just three since. Tuesday, 8:33 pm
  • Stephen Drew out Tuesday with the flu
    Stephen Drew was unavailable Tuesday due to the flu.

  • Alex Bregman starting at third base at AAA
    Alex Bregman is starting at third base for Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday night.

    Advice: It's his first start at the hot corner since his promotion from Double-A Corpus Christi. Third base is the clear spot for Bregman in Houston with Carlos Correa at shortstop and Jose Altuve at second base. The addition of Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel complicates things long term, but Bregman should beat Gurriel to the major leagues this year. These are good problems to have for Houston. Tuesday, 3:21 pm
  • Ketel Marte (ankle, flu) out again Tuesday
    Ketel Marte (flu) is out again Tuesday.

    Advice: Marte returned to the Mariners' lineup Sunday after missing a game with an ankle injury, but he came down with a stomach virus on Monday. Consider him day-to-day still. Shawn O'Malley is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff Tuesday versus White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana. Tuesday, 3:06 pm

  • Corey Seager out Tuesday because of virus
    Corey Seager is out Tuesday due to a stomach virus.

    Advice: It's probably the same bug that has been traveling around a number of MLB clubhouses. Chris Taylor will fill in at shortstop Tuesday night against the Nationals. Tuesday, 2:24 pm
  • Cardinals place Peralta (thumb) back on DL
    Cardinals placed 3B Jhonny Peralta on the 15-day disabled list with a left thumb injury.

    Advice: Peralta continues to experience nagging pain in his surgically-repaired left thumb. Hopefully a good two weeks of rest will finally solve the issue. He had batted just .221/.258/.416 in 30 games since his initial June 7 activation. Greg Garcia figures to see semi-regular action at third base in Peralta's absence. Tuesday, 1:26 pm

  • Baez not in Tuesday's lineup
    Javier Baez is not in the Cubs' lineup Tuesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Tommy La Stella will make the start at third base and bat leadoff. Meanwhile, Willson Contreras, Jason Heyward, and Kris Bryant will handle the outfield from left to right. Miguel Montero is behind the dish and will catch Jake Arrieta, as per usual. Tuesday, 11:19 am

  • Rangers getting 'tons of calls' on Profar
    T.R. Sullivan of reports that the Rangers are getting "tons of calls" on Jurickson Profar.

    Advice: The Rangers' biggest need is starting pitching, so the question is whether they'll find anything that motivates them to trade Profar. Sullivan notes that the Rangers have interest in Matt Moore, Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly from the Rays, but that might not be enough to part with Profar. Sullivan also mentions the Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy as a potential target. Profar essentially missed two years due to shoulder issues, but he's still just 23 years old and has impressed with a .318/.366/.455 batting line in 142 plate appearances with the Rangers this season.

  • Gleyber Torres stays hot with four hits Monday
    Cubs SS prospect Gleyber Torres whacked four hits Monday in a win for High-A Myrtle Beach.

    Advice: Reyes' primary goal is getting more comfortable at third base, but he'll also continuing working in center field just in case. The Mets are also looking at Michael Conforto in center field, so anything is possible in this situation. No word on if Bartolo Colon has been ruled out as an option. Monday, 2:04 pm

    Stephen Drew went 3-for-4 with three doubles and two runs scored Saturday against the Pirates.

    Advice: Drew had just five doubles in 48 games prior to Saturday's game, but he was an extra-base machine in the victory. The good game raised his batting average 21 points, an indication of how sparsely he's been used and how pedestrian he's been when he does find his way into the lineup. Drew is hitting .263/.324/.568 overall. Jul 16, 9:13 pm
