  • Will Middlebrooks leaves with strained leg
    Will Middlebrooks left Sunday's game versus the Cubs with a right lower leg strain.

    Advice: Middlebrooks tweaked his leg while popping out in the third inning. It's unclear whether it could be more than a day-to-day injury, but the Brewers should offer up more on his status at some point. Rotoworld.com 36 minutes ago

  • Martin picks up lone hit in loss to Blue Jays
    Leonys Martin secured the Mariners' only hit in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Martin's little single was all the M's could manage against J.A. Happ and company. While he has had a few big moments this month -- including a two-homer performance against the White Sox on July 20 -- Martin has struggled for the most part since the calendar flipped. He entered Sunday's contest holding a soggy .188/.316/.359 triple-slash over 64 July at-bats. Rotoworld.com 40 minutes ago
  • Cobb (elbow) could resume rehab soon
    Alex Cobb (elbow) will throw another bullpen session Tuesday, at which point the Rays will decide if he's ready to resume his rehab assignment.

    Advice: Cobb was pulled off his rehab assignment last week due to arm fatigue. It's something that's fairly common when a pitcher is coming back from a major operation, so there shouldn't be much worry. However, he's probably not going to be an option for the Rays' rotation until late August, at the earliest. It's unclear he'll do much for fantasy owners this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:19 pm
    60-Day DL
     
  • Logan Morrison (wrist) remains out of lineup
    Logan Morrison (wrist) remained out of the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Morrison hasn't played in a week due to a wrist issue. Rays manager Kevin Cash said recently that the injury was getting worse, although the club obviously hasn't placed LoMo on the disabled list yet. Steve Pearce is at first base Sunday. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:42 am

  • Anthony Ranaudo recalled from Triple-A
    White Sox recalled RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Ranaudo holds a 3.03 ERA and 71/12 K/BB ratio over 92 Triple-A innings this season. He'll be utilized in a relief role for now. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:59 am
  • Arismendy Alcantara optioned to Triple-A
    Athletics optioned INF/OF Arismendy Alcantara to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: He's clearly out to accommodate the arrival of Sunday's starter, Jesse Hahn. Alcantara has three hits in 13 at-bats in his brief time with the big club this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:18 am

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:37 am

  • Mikie Mahtook (hand) to hit off a tee
    Mikie Mahtook (hand) will hit off a tee Sunday.

    Advice: Mahtook has missed over a month of action with a fractured left hand. He probably won't be back until late August, at the earliest. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:03 am
    15-Day DL

  • Ryan Tepera recalled from Triple-A
    Blue Jays recalled RHP Ryan Tepera from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: He's taking Drew Storen's spot in the bullpen. Tepera holds a 5.79 ERA over five relief appearances with the Jays this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:44 am
  • A.J. Schugel recalled from Triple-A
    Pirates recalled RHP A.J. Schugel from Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Schugel holds a 3.94 ERA and 41/13 K/BB ratio over 48 relief innings this season. He'll be used in the middle of games. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:33 am
  • Nick Burdi (elbow) likely done for season
    Twins pitching prospect Nick Burdi (elbow) is unlikely to pitch in another game this season.

    Advice: Burdi has been limited to just three appearances this season due to a bone bruise near his right elbow that he suffered at the end of spring training. He's rehabbing at the club's spring training complex and could resuming a throwing program soon, but with just over a month left in the minor league season he's likely to run out of time. Burdi is a potential closer candidate for the Twins assuming he can get healthy, but he won't debut until at least 2017 now. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:15 am

  • Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) throws off mound
    Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's thrown from the bump since being diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament. The Diamondbacks are hoping De La Rosa can rejoin their rotation at some point in the second half, but he's still got some work to do. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:16 am
  • Chad Kuhl leaves AAA start with biceps injury
    Chad Kuhl left his start for Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday with right biceps discomfort.

    Advice: It's unwelcome news at any time, but especially after Tyler Glasnow exited his start with the big club on the same day with a shoulder issue. How long Kuhl will be sidelined isn't known at this point, but it's fair to assume that he won't be starting for the Pirates for a while. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:25 am

  • Anderson gives up three in six frames for win
    Tyler Anderson turned in a quality start at Coors Field, yielding three runs in six innings to help the Rockies beat the Braves 8-4 on Saturday.

    Advice: The rookie continues to impress. He struck out six batters, walked one and gave up eight base hits, none of which left the yard. It was his seventh start since being called up, and five of them have come at Coors Field. He is 3-3 with a 3.56 ERA. He has a 41/10 K/BB ratio in 48 innings. Perhaps most impressively, he has given up only four home runs, and two of those came on the road. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Rosario nabs four hits, three runs versus Sox
    Eddie Rosario went a perfect 4-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: All four of Rosario's hits were singles, but that's about all the fault you can find with his night Saturday. The 24-year-old has been a breath of fresh air since being recalled on July 2, batting .396 (21-for-53) with two homers, seven RBI and 11 runs scored. With the Twins going nowhere, it would behoove them to continue to find Rosario at-bats with the hope that this could finally be the breakout that has been promised for years. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Pirates option A.J. Schugel to Triple-A
    Pirates optioned RHP A.J. Schugel to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: Schugel had been serving as the long man in the Pirates bullpen, but with Jeff Locke shifting to that role he became expendable. Expect to see him again at some point during the second half of the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:32 am
  • Logan Morrison (wrist) not in Rays lineup
    Logan Morrison (wrist) is not in the Rays starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Rays manager Kevin Cash admitted Thursday that Morrison is dealing with a wrist issue that's getting worse, prompting a visit to the doctor on Thursday. Tim Beckham is starting in his place at first base against Sonny Gray and the A's on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:15 pm

  • Cobb (elbow) throws 28 pitches off a mound
    Alex Cobb (elbow) threw 28 pitches off a mound Wednesday at Tropicana Field.

    Advice: Cobb was pulled off his rehab assignment this week after leaving a start last week at High-A Charlotte with arm fatigue. At least it sounds like it wasn't a major setback. He remains without a timetable for his return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:51 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:28 pm

  • Walk-off shot one of two homers for Martin
    Leonys Martin launched a walk-off solo home run to end Wednesday's 6-5, 11-inning win over the White Sox, his second homer of the game.

    Advice: Martin's first shot was of the two-run variety. He socked it off White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez in the second inning. The 28-year-old outfielder waited until the bottom of the 11th to crack homer No. 2, this one coming off reliever Dan Jennings. Unfortunately for Jennings, it would finish off the game. For the season, Martin is slashing .245/.324/.427 with 13 homers, 29 RBI and 10 steals over 274 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:16 pm
  • A's recall Arismendy Alcantara from Nashville
    Athletics recalled INF/OF Arismendy Alcantara from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Alcantara has 28 steals in 31 attempts and a .750 OPS in 77 games this season between the Triple-A affiliates of the Cubs and Athletics. The versatile 24-year-old could take on fantasy value if he finds regular at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:07 am

  • Cobb (elbow) pulled off rehab assignment
    Alex Cobb (elbow) has been officially pulled off his minor league rehab assignment.

    Advice: Cobb was lifted from a rehab start last week at High-A Charlotte due to arm fatigue and the Rays want to give him time on the side to work through that. They believe it to be a mechanical issue. "We felt this was the right time to do it," manager Kevin Cash said. "We want to make sure he gets his full rehab and can work through the process at his pace a little bit." There is currently no timetable for Cobb's return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:15 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Pirates option Kuhl to Triple-A
    Pirates optioned RHP Chad Kuhl to Triple-A Indianapolis.

    Advice: He'll head down to the minors now that Jameson Taillon is ready to return. Kuhl posted a 4.19 ERA and 13/5 K/BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings through his first four starts in the majors. He should get another chance soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:49 pm

  • Cobb (elbow) threw bullpen session Sunday
    Alex Cobb (elbow) made it through a successful bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: And he'll throw another one Wednesday before possibly facing live hitters again. Cobb was pulled from a rehab start last week at High-A Charlotte after experiencing fatigue. He's still trying to rebuild strength following Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and clearly has no timetable for activation at this point. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 5:50 am
    60-Day DL
     
  • Nationals fail to strike in Kuhl's six frames
    Chad Kuhl pitched well in earning a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, firing six innings of shutout ball.

    Advice: Kuhl allowed just one hit, but despite his shutout work, no decision would be rendered until the Pirates secured the win via a solo home run by Starling Marte in the 18th inning. Through his first four major league starts, the 23-year-old right-hander has allowed nine runs on 19 hits over 19 1/3 innings. That works out to a 4.19 ERA. A home start against the Phillies shows next on his schedule. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 4:25 pm

  • Hardy's two-run homer leads O's past Rays
    J.J. Hardy hit a two-run home run, and the Orioles held on for a 2-1 win over the Rays on Saturday.

    Advice: Hardy has homered in two of his last three games and has four homers in 44 games overall. The shortstop has a nine-game hitting streak as well. Hardy, who missed time earlier this year with a fractured left foot, is batting .262/.293/.415 overall. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 7:41 pm

  • Martin doubles, triples in win over Astros
    Leonys Martin went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and run scored in Saturday's win over the Astros.

    Advice: Martin led off the sixth inning with a triple, his second of the season, and came around to score one batter later on a Robinson Cano RBI single. A hamstring injury in late May derailed what was looking to be a breakout year for the 28-year-old, and he's struggled since returning in mid-June. Martin is batting .249/.322/.418 with 11 home runs, 26 RBI, 36 runs scored and nine steals overall. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 7:06 pm
  • Cobb (elbow) to throw 'pen session Sunday
    Alex Cobb (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Sunday to work on his mechanics.

    Advice: Cobb was pulled from his rehab start Monday at High-A Charlotte after just one inning due to fatigue. He's still rebuilding the strength of his right arm coming out of Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Rays manager Kevin Cash said Friday that it's not a significant setback and that Cobb could pitch again on Tuesday or Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 1:28 pm
