  • Adrian Gonzalez drives in three in win
    Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Gonzalez lofted a sacrifice fly in the third inning, then came back with a shallow two-run single in the fifth. With the three RBI, he padded his tally to 73 for the season as a whole. The veteran first baseman has also cracked 15 home runs while slashing .301/.369/.458. Yesterday, 11:46 pm
  • Denard Span homers off Kenley Jansen
    Denard Span smacked a solo home run off Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning of Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Span's solo home run to lead off the ninth merely served as cosmetic effect in this one, as the Dodgers held a 9-4 advantage entering the frame. The tater was Span's eighth of the season and pushed his RBI total to 43. In addition, the veteran outfielder is slashing .274/.337/.385 over 464 at-bats. There is no fantasy shine here. Yesterday, 11:39 pm
  • Davis launches three-run homer as A's roll
    Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and three runs scored in Tuesday's 9-1 win over the Indians.

    Advice: Davis opened the scoring in style by swatting a three-run home run off Danny Salazar in the first inning. He also singled and walked in the contest. For the season, the 28-year-old slugger is slashing .257/.300/.530 with 33 homers and 82 RBI over 440 at-bats. He has homered four times in his last 10 games. Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • Gimenez prevents shutout via solo homer
    Chris Gimenez went 1-for-1 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's loss to the A's.

    Advice: Gimenez cracked a solo home run off Sean Manaea to lead off the sixth inning. That homer would represent the only run the Indians managed on the evening. That little power showing aside, the year has mostly been a struggle for Gimenez, who is hitting just .220/.262/.347 with four homers and 11 RBI over 118 at-bats. There is no fantasy intrigue here. Yesterday, 10:59 pm
  • Matt Kemp drives in three as Braves rally
    Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Kemp almost single-handedly rallied the Braves back from a 4-2 deficit. He started the comeback with a sacrifice fly in the fourth to cut the advantage to 4-3, then flipped the score completely with his two-run double with two outs in the top of the eighth inning. The veteran outfielder has picked up hits in nine of his last 10 games and is slashing .263/.296/.480 with 25 homers and 81 RBI. He has rocked at least 23 home runs in each of the last three seasons. Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Lamb's two-run double not enough for victory
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Lamb drove in two with a ground rule double in the third inning. He finished the evening with a pair of two-baggers, giving him 24 for the season as a whole. In addition, Lamb is slashing a shiny .262/.338/.535 with 24 homers and 77 RBI across 409 at-bats. On the whole, it has been a brilliant breakout year for the 25-year-old infielder. Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Addison Russell cranks two-run homer in win
    Addison Russell went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Russell cranked a two-run home run off Padres starter Christian Friedrich in the fifth inning. The dinger was his 19th of the season. For the campaign as a whole, the 22-year-old shortstop is slashing .251/.336/.445 across 418 at-bats. He has homered in each of his last three games, including a two-homer effort against the Rockies on Sunday. Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Late RBI single from Myers not enough for win
    Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Myers picked up an RBI base knock as part of a three-run ninth inning, but the Cubs held a 5-0 cushion to start the frame and managed to close out the win despite a few late rocky moments. For the season as a whole, the 25-year-old Myers is hitting .267/.343/.473 with 23 homers and 72 RBI. The overall numbers are fine, but he has struggled of late and entered Tuesday's game with just two hits in his last 23 at-bats. Yesterday, 10:28 pm
  • Yasmany Tomas exits with back stiffness
    Yasmany Tomas left Tuesday's game against the Braves due to mid-back stiffness.

    Advice: Brandon Drury pinch-hit for Tomas midway through Tuesday's contest, as apparently Tomas' back stiffened up on him during the proceedings. He was waylaid by a stiff neck earlier this month, but no word as of yet whether his current back ailment is in any way related. For the time being, Tomas should be considered day-to-day. He will be reevaluated on Wednesday. Yesterday, 10:16 pm
    6:40 pm vs Atl
  • Ellsbury clocks two-run home run in win
    Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Ellsbury connected for a two-run shot off Taijuan Walker in the fifth inning, snapping a 1-1 tie in the process. The Mariners wouldn't score again as the Bombers cruised to an easy 5-1 victory. For his part, the speedy Ellsbury is hitting .262/.321/.368 with six homers, 42 RBI and 18 steals over 432 at-bats. He simply hasn't provided a ton of spark this season in terms of fantasy production. Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Cano singles twice in loss to former team
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: As a team, the Mariners managed just four hits on the evening. Cano was the only player to pick up more than one. The All-Star second baseman is in the midst of a fantastic campaign and is currently slashing .295/.349/.522 with 28 homers and 79 RBI across 508 at-bats. Fantasy second basemen don't get much better than that. Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Flores hits three-run shot in win over Cards
    Wilmer Flores hit a three-run home run as the Mets bested the Cardinals 7-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Getting a start against a lefty as per usual, Flores turned on an inside fastball in the first inning for the three-run dinger. It was his only hit in the game and Flores' 13th homer of the year. With first base still a big question mark and Flores' ability to hit left-handed pitching, the 25-year-old should continue to draw starts at the less-hot corner going forward. Flores is hitting .259/.315/.447 in 87 games total. Yesterday, 10:00 pm
    New Player Note
    Wilmer Flores NYM - 1B,2B,3B,SS
    5:15 pm @StL
  • Molina picks up three hits in loss to Mets
    Yadier Molina finished 3-for-5 with an RBI double in a loss to the Mets on Tuesday.

    Advice: The multi-hit game was Molina's fifth in his last 10 contests. He hasn't displayed the power he once did, swatting just four homers to date, but the 34-year-old owns a respectable .284/.345/.387 line with 39 RBI and 40 runs scored on the year. Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Cabrera collects three more hits since return
    Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base Tuesday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Garcia now has two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in four games since being activated from the disabled list on August 19. He's 6-for-16 in those four games, raising his overall line to .260/.310/.414 with 13 homers, 35 RBI and 43 runs scored. The stolen base, swiped against the great Yadier Molina as part of a double steal, was just Cabrera's second on the year. Yesterday, 9:52 pm
  • Reyes has three hits, three runs versus Cards
    Jose Reyes went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a stolen base and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Reyes scored nearly half of the Mets' runs in the game, accounting for three of the team's seven. He did it with three singles, giving him 15 hits in his last 38 at-bats. After a slow start, the 33-year-old is now hitting .284/.336/.477 with three homers, 12 RBI, 18 runs scored and six steals in 26 games. Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Perez' two-run triple leads Brewers past Rox
    Hernan Perez hit a two-run triple in the seventh inning to help the Brewers get past the Rockies 6-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: The hit was Perez' only one in four at-bats, but it was a big one. With two outs and an 0-2 count, Perez slashed a Carlos Estevez pitch down the right field line and into the corner, plating both Jonathan Villar and Ryan Braun to give the Brewers a late lead. It was just the latest noteworthy performance for the 25-year-old this year, who's hitting .282/.308/.458 with 11 homers, 43 RBI, 35 runs scored and 23 steals in 87 games played. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
    11:10 am vs Col
  • Arenado hits three-run jack against Brewers
    Nolan Arenado hit a three-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Arenado leads the National League with 33 home runs and 107 RBI, and he's second in the league with 91 runs scored. There's just not a lot else to say about the 25-year-old superstar besides he's one of the best in the game in almost every facet. Offensively, which is what matters in our game, Arenado is hitting .286/.357/.564 through 124 games. Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • V-Mart homers, scores three runs vs. Twins
    Victor Martinez finished 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Twins.

    Advice: Martinez had three of the Tigers' 14 hits on the evening, including a two-run blast in the seventh. The homer was No. 23 for V-Mart, who now has 73 RBI and 52 runs scored. After enduring a cold July, the 37-year-old is hitting .305 with six homers, 13 RBI and 12 runs scored this month. Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Lorenzo Cain drives in lone run for Royals
    Lorenzo Cain singled in the only run of the game in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Cain drove one to center field off of Andrew Cashner in the sixth inning to plate Paulo Orlando. He also had another single on the night, picking up two of the Royals' six hits. Kansas City has now won nine straight games to pull back into the American League Wild Card race. Yesterday, 7:32 pm
  • Beckham leaves game with tight hamstring
    Tim Beckham left Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with a tight left hamstring.

    Advice: He was replaced in the lineup by Richie Shaffer before the top of the eighth inning, finishing the night 1-for-3 with a single. Beckham will be reevaluated by the Rays' medical team on Wednesday. Yesterday, 7:11 pm
    4:10 pm vs Bos
  • LeMahieu scratched due to wrist inflammation
    DJ LeMahieu was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation.

    Advice: Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth Tuesday versus Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson. This could be a multi-game absence for LeMahieu. Yesterday, 2:09 pm
    11:10 am @Mil
  • Anthony Rizzo goes 4-for-5
    Anthony Rizzo went 4-for-5 on Monday to finish a game with a .300 average for the first time since April 9.

    Advice: Rizzo got to .299 in the final game before the All-Star break, so it's not like he's been on a tear of late. Still, he's managed to keep contributing, even though he has just one homer in the last month. Monday, 10:43 pm
  • Starlin Castro homers twice
    Starlin Castro hit a pair of solo homers Monday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Castro has set a new career high with 17 homers this year, but even so, he hasn't been as productive as hoped. The sub-.300 OBP and mediocre defense at second base have left him a below average regular. Monday, 10:30 pm
  • Freddie Freeman homers twice against Arizona
    Freddie Freeman homered twice, doubled and walked Monday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Well, of course he did; he was playing in Arizona. Freeman has hit .400 with 12 homers, 12 doubles and 36 RBI in 31 career games against the Diamondbacks. Monday, 10:16 pm
  • Carlos Santana homers and walks in win
    Carlos Santana homered and walked as the Indians' leadoff man Monday against the A's.

    Advice: Santana's homer off Ryan Dull was the only run in the 1-0 win. He's matched his career high with 27 homers this season. Monday, 9:59 pm
  • Khris Davis fans four times
    Khris Davis struck out all four times he was up in Monday's loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Davis now has a career high in strikeouts (125) to go along with his highs in homers (32) and RBI (79) this season. He has just 20 walks and 18 doubles in 469 plate appearances, so he's not doing much when he isn't homering. Still, he's homering enough to make up for it. Monday, 9:57 pm
  • Freddie Freeman (finger) in Monday's lineup
    Freddie Freeman (finger) is back in Monday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Freeman got the day off Sunday after receiving a cortisone shot in his right middle finger on Saturday. He got treatment and hit in the cage on Monday with no issues, so he's ready to make his return to the lineup. Monday, 3:41 pm
  • Adrian Gonzalez has three-HR, eight-RBI day
    Adrian Gonzalez had a monster day in Monday’s 18-9 pounding of the Reds, going 3-for-6 with three homers and a career-high eight RBI.

    Advice: Gonzalez connected for a three-run shot off Homer Bailey in the first inning before adding a solo blast in a six-run fifth and a two-run shot in the seventh. He had a chance for a fourth homer in the eighth, but grounded out to second base. On the bright side, he drove in his eighth run of the day on the play. This is the second three-homer game of Gonzalez’s career. He has now hit safely in 15 consecutive games and is batting .299/.369/.458 with 15 homers and 70 RBI overall. Monday, 1:41 pm
  • Denard Span goes hitless in loss to Mets
    Denard Span had a rough night at the plate on Sunday, going hitless in four at-bats as the Giants were shutout by Noah Syndergaard and the Mets.

    Advice: As a team, the Giants were only able to generate three total hits, so Span wasn't alone in his ineffectiveness. The Giants' leadoff hitter is now hitting .272/.335/.377 on the season with seven homers and 42 RBI. Sunday, 7:39 pm
  • Arenado goes 4-for-5 with two homers, six RBI
    Nolan Arenado finished 4-for-5 with six RBI in the Rockies' 11-4 rout of the Cubs on Sunday.

    Advice: Arenado opened the game's scoring with a three-run shot in the bottom of the first inning before adding another three-run blast in the bottom of the fourth. He also singled twice. The 25-year-old third baseman is up to 104 RBI for the year, which leads all of MLB, and only Mark Trumbo and Edwin Encarnacion have more homers. Sunday, 4:26 pm
  • Russell hits pair of solo shots in Colorado
    Addison Russell hit a pair of solo homers Sunday in the Cubs' loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: He got to Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa in both the top of the fifth and the top of the seventh, but Colorado's offense produced 11 runs on 14 hits to take an 11-4 win. Russell finished the day 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored. He's up to 17 homers and 78 RBI for the year. Sunday, 4:20 pm
  • Freeman unavailable Sunday due to finger
    Freddie Freeman was unavailable for Sunday's game against the Nationals after receiving a shot in the right middle finger on his right hand on Saturday.

    Advice: It doesn't sound as though the injury is serious, so Freeman should be considered day-to-day. He's having a nice season at the dish, slashing .287/.382/.539 with a career-high 24 homers and 58 RBI. Sunday, 4:01 pm
  • Khris Davis launches 32nd home run of '16
    Khris Davis slugged his 32nd home run of the season on Sunday against the White Sox.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the top of the fourth inning off White Sox starter Jose Quintana and gave the A's their only runs of the game. Davis is batting just .257 with a .299 on-base percentage, but the 28-year-old slugger is on pace for 42 home runs and 103 RBI. Sunday, 3:19 pm
  • Victor Martinez getting a day off Sunday
    Victor Martinez is not in the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Miguel Cabrera is in the designated hitter spot Sunday, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia getting a start at first base. Sunday, 9:13 am
  • Freddie Freeman sitting out on Sunday
    Freddie Freeman is absent from the Braves' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a rare day off for the first baseman. Nick Markakis is handling first base for Freeman, with Jeff Francoeur taking a spot in right field. Sunday, 8:10 am
  • Cain collects three hits, three RBI vs. Twins
    Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI and a run scored in a win over the Twins on Saturday.

    Advice: Cain swatted a two-run double in the third inning and added a sacrifice fly RBI later in the game. He's now hit in six straight games, going 14-for-27 with eight RBI and five runs scored in those six contests. It's nice to see him rounding into form after he showed some rust following activation from the disabled list in late July. Cain is now hitting .289/.333/.408 overall. Saturday, 8:06 pm
  • Jacoby Ellsbury goes 3-for-5, homers
    Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-5 and homered Friday against the Angels.

    Advice: The homer was his first of the second half. He entered the night hitting .224/.272/.267 with just one steal in 116 at-bats since the All-Star break. Still, the Yankees haven't used his struggles as an excuse to move him down in the lineup or to give him less playing time. Friday, 11:24 pm
  • Khris Davis slugs homer No. 31 in win
    Khris Davis went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and four runs scored in Friday’s win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Davis also singled and doubled in the victory. He’s now up to 31 homers on the year. Only Edwin Encarnacion and Mark Trumbo have hit more in MLB. Friday, 8:05 pm
  • Mets activate Asdrubal Cabrera from 15-day DL
    Mets activated INF Asdrubal Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He's back in the lineup on Friday night, as is lineup-mate Yoenis Cespedes. Cabrera returns to a .255/.308/.410 slash line on the season, where he has been a solid performer and capable run producer. His bat has been sorely missed in the Mets lineup. Friday, 5:16 pm
  • Cano cracks solo home run in loss to Angels
    Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Cano whacked a solo home run off Angels starter Matt Shoemaker in the first inning for his lone hit of the game. The dinger was his 27th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 75. The 27 homers are the most he has hit since he launched the same number with the Yankees in 2013. With about a month-and-a-half remaining in the season, the star second baseman needs six more home runs to tie the career-best 33 he notched four seasons ago. Thursday, 10:30 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) to be activated Friday
    The Mets will activate Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) from the 15-day disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: Yoenis Cespedes (quad) will also come off the DL on Friday. The Mets were originally planning to activate Cabrera on Thursday but they decided to wait another 24 hours. Cabrera missed a couple weeks with a strained patellar tendon. He sports a pedestrian .255/.308/.410 slash line over 373 at-bats this season. Thursday, 5:12 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) returning Thursday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) will be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

    Advice: Cabrera wound up missing a little over two weeks with a strained patellar tendon in his left knee. He went 2-for-6 with two doubles and two RBI in a two-game minor league rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie. Thursday, 5:56 am
  • Tomas hits two homers, nets six RBI in rout
    Yasmany Tomas had two homers, a triple, six RBI and a walk Wednesday as the Diamondbacks crushed the Mets 13-5.

    Advice: Tomas has four two-homer games just since the All-Star break, and he's hit 25 homers overall. That he hardly ever walks remains an issue, but he's always maintained a decent batting average and power stroke as a major leaguer. It seems like he'll be a respectable, if potentially overrated, fantasy regular going forward. Wednesday, 10:18 pm
    6:40 pm vs Atl
  • Freeman swats two-run homer Wednesday
    Freddie Freeman went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a two-run bomb in a loss to the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: He set a career high with his 24th home run of the season. After several dreadful weeks early in the season Freeman has been one of the best hitters in the league since then. He is batting .288/.384/.543 with 56 RBI and 68 runs scored. Unfortunately the lineup around him is too poor to allow him to accumulate top-tier fantasy counting stats. His .927 OPS is good for sixth in the National League. Wednesday, 8:39 pm
  • A-Gone drills two bombs, drives in five runs
    Adrian Gonzalez drilled a three-run bomb in the fourth inning and a two-run tater in the seventh to lead the Dodgers over the Phillies 7-2 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez has come to life lately to perk up a sluggish season. The powerful game raised his line to .298/.371/.438 with 12 homers, 62 RBI and 53 runs scored in 115 games. The batting average and on-base percentage look good but the power stats are well below what we are used to getting from the veteran slugger. Wednesday, 7:54 pm
  • V-Mart cracks solo homer in Wednesday's loss
    Victor Martinez hit a solo home run that provided the only scoring the Tigers could muster in a tough loss to the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Detroit squandered a no-hit bid by Anibal Sanchez. The home run was the 22nd time Martinez has gone deep this year. He is batting .303 with 70 RBI as a 37-year-old. He has lost the catcher eligibility that made him a fantasy star for a decade but his bat is plenty good enough to devote a UTIL slot to him day in and day out. Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Span getting the day off on Wednesday
    Denard Span is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Eduardo Nunez will bat leadoff and Gregor Blanco will start in center field in the afternoon tilt against the Pirates. Span is batting just .263/.329/.361 this year. Wednesday, 10:20 am
  • Ellsbury getting the day off Wednesday
    Jacoby Ellsbury is getting the day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Aaron Hicks will start in center field and bat ninth versus Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ. The left-handed Ellsbury owns a disappointing .263/.326/.361 batting line in 110 games this season with New York. Wednesday, 7:39 am
  • LeMahieu scores three times as Rox best Nats
    DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-3 with a triple, a two-run home run and three runs scored as the Rockies topped the Nationals 6-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: No one this side of the equator (sorry, that disqualifies you, Michael Phelps) is as hot as LeMahieu these days. The 28-year-old is now hitting .548 (17-for-31) with two home runs, five RBI and eight runs scored during an eight-game hitting streak, running his overall line to .342/.415/.498. LeMahieu is also fourth in the National League with 79 runs scored. Tuesday, 11:05 pm
    11:10 am @Mil
  • Perez hits 10th homer in loss against Cubs
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 with his 10th home run of the season in Tuesday's nightcap against the Cubs.

    Advice: Perez hit what seemed like a meaningless homer with two outs in the ninth inning of a four-run game, but the Brewers put together a small rally to bring the tying run to the plate before Aroldis Chapman snuffed out the comeback attempt. The homer was the 10th for Perez in what is shaping up to be a breakout year for the 25-year-old. He's hitting .286/.312/.456 with 21 steals to go along with those 10 homers. Tuesday, 9:02 pm
    11:10 am vs Col
  • DJ LeMahieu goes 4-for-4
    DJ LeMahieu had a 4-for-4 night at the plate Monday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Though he lacks the big power stroke, LeMahieu has been awesome at Coors Field this year, hitting .390 with a 24/36 K/BB ratio in 242 plate appearances. On the road, he's at a much more pedestrian, though still respectable, .288 with a 38/16 K/BB ratio in 239 plate appearances. It's just not all about the home run at Coors. Monday, 9:22 pm
    11:10 am @Mil
  • Lorenzo Cain reaches four times Monday
    Lorenzo Cain reached base four times in Monday's victory over the Tigers.

    Advice: He walked twice and had a couple singles, with one of them driving in a run. Cain had been in a horrible slump, but he's now tallied six hits over his last seven at-bats. His batting line for the season is sitting at .283/.327/.399. Monday, 7:42 pm
  • Cabrera (knee) to begin rehab stint Tuesday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) will indeed begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A St. Lucie.

    Advice: Cabrera, who is working his way back from a strained patellar tendon in his left knee, will be eased in as the designated hitter before returning to shortstop. The Mets are hoping he'll be able to return this weekend in San Francisco. Monday, 5:37 pm
  • Rizzo slugs 25th home run in losing effort
    Anthony Rizzo slugged his 25th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Cardinals on Sunday night.

    Advice: His solo blast off of Kevin Siegrist in the eighth inning pulled the Cubs back to within two runs at 6-4, but that would be as close as they would come in the ballgame. Rizzo also singled twice, finishing the night 3-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI. He's having an outstanding season at the dish, slashing .291/.398/.572 with 25 homers, 85 RBI and three stolen bases. Aug 14, 8:14 pm
  • Davis clubs 30th home run in loss Sunday
    Khris Davis clubbed his 30th home run on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Athletics to victory over the Mariners.

    Advice: Davis' two-run shot in the sixth inning pulled the A's to within four runs at 7-3. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and is now slashing .254/.294/.516 with the aforementioned 30 bombs and 75 RBI. While the on-base percentage isn't optimal, he's one of the top sources of right-handed power in all of baseball. Aug 14, 4:05 pm
  • LoCain goes 4-for-4 with three RBI vs. Twins
    Lorenzo Cain finished 4-for-4 with three RBI in the Royals' 11-4 rout of the Twins on Sunday.

    Advice: Cain drove in the game's first run with a sacrifice fly in the top of the first inning and then added a double in the fourth and singles in the fifth, sixth, and eighth. His single in the top of the sixth plated Christian Colon and Cheslor Cuthbert. Cain had been stuck in a bad offensive slump since his return from the disabled list on July 29. Maybe this will get him going toward a big finish. Aug 14, 2:31 pm
  • Carlos Santana (head) back in lineup Sunday
    Carlos Santana (head) is back in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Santana was pulled from Thursday's game when he was hit in the side of the head by a foul ball while sitting in the dugout. He sat out the last two days but has been cleared of concussion symptoms and is back in his customary designated hitter and leadoff spots Sunday. Aug 14, 7:17 am
  • Cano slugs two-run homer on Saturday
    Robinson Cano slugged a key two-run homer to lift the Mariners over the Athletics on Saturday.

    Advice: The blast was his 26th of the season. He is batting .294 with 73 RBI and 75 runs scored. His .872 OPS is his best since joining the Mariners in 2014. Aug 13, 10:23 pm
  • Span drives in four runs on Saturday
    Denard Span went 2-for-5 and drove home four runs as the Giants beat the Orioles on Saturday.

    Advice: Not exactly what you expect from a lead-off hitter. Span singled in two runs in the second inning and did the same thing again in the sixth -- although this time he got thrown out trying to stretch the single into a double. Span's .263 batting average with five homers, 38 RBI, 50 runs scored and 12 stolen bases in 105 games are not very enticing for fantasy owners. Aug 13, 9:32 pm
  • Flores' three hits help Mets win in extras
    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Mets' 3-2, 11-inning win over the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: Flores was having a good night before he came to the dish with runners on the corners and one out in the 11th inning. The 25-year-old hit a ground ball up the middle that second baseman Ryan Schimpf fielded but threw wide of catcher Christian Bethancourt, allowing the winning run to score and making Flores the hero. With the three-hit night, Flores is batting .255/.309/.434 with 11 homers, 33 RBI and 27 runs scored overall. Aug 13, 9:15 pm

  • Myers connects for clutch homer against Mets
    Wil Myers hit his 23rd home run of the year in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: It was going to be a loss anyway before Myers turned around a 97 mph fastball from closer Jeurys Familia to tie the game with two outs in the ninth inning. The homer was Myers' only hit in four at-bats. The 25-year-old has settled in with the Padres and is enjoying a breakout offensive year, batting .276/.354/.500 with 23 homers, 70 RBI, 77 runs and 21 stolen bases through 113 games. Aug 13, 9:10 pm
