  • Matt Wieters not in lineup Friday
    Matt Wieters is not in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Wieters has caught back-to-back games only once this season and is sitting out this one after catching Thursday. Caleb Joseph is behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:35 pm
  • Devin Mesoraco to have labrum surgery Tuesday
    Devin Mesoraco will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

    Advice: It was a labrum tear in his hip that ended his 2015 campaign and now Mesoraco is facing another lost season. The recovery time is a minimum of four months, so the catcher is effectively done for 2016. He's hit only .158/.245/.200 across just 106 plate appearances since the beginning of 2015. Tucker Barnhart and Ramon Cabrera will handle the catching duties with Mesoraco on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm

  • Roberto Perez (thumb) out 8-12 weeks
    Roberto Perez will be sidelined for 8-12 weeks after having surgery Friday to repair an avulsion fracture and ulnar collateral ligament tear in his right thumb.

    Advice: The procedure was more invasive than initially thought, although it appears the Indians will get Perez back in the second half. Adam Moore will back up Yan Gomes until then. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:18 am
    15-Day DL

  • Juan Centeno called up from Triple-A
    Twins purchased the contract of C Juan Centeno from Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Centeno, 26, has hit .245/.315/.327 with one homer at Rochester this season. He'll back up Kurt Suzuki. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:58 am
  • John Ryan Murphy optioned to Triple-A
    Twins optioned C John Ryan Murphy to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Murphy has been in a timeshare with Kurt Suzuki but has managed just three hits in 40 at-bats this season. He'll get a chance to play every day at Rochester and should get another shot in the majors later this year. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:57 am

  • Nick Hundley (oblique) could need DL stint
    Nick Hundley (oblique) will be re-evaluated Friday before the Rockies determine whether he'll need a stint on the disabled list.

    Advice: Hundley tweaked his left oblique during batting practice Thursday and had to be scratched from the lineup. "I've been feeling good physically, so it's frustrating on that end," Hundley said Thursday. "I'll have to check and see how it feels tomorrow. I cut batting practice a little bit short and I was going to go until it got worse." Dustin Garneau will be recalled if Hundley goes on the DL and he'd be in line to share time behind the plate with Tony Wolters. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:15 am

  • Norris homers, collects three hits in win
    Derek Norris went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Mets.

    Advice: Norris notched a solo home run off Mets reliever Logan Verrett in the sixth inning. He also hit singles and doubles, missing out on the cycle by a triple. Through 90 at-bats, the 27-year-old backstop is hitting just .167/.211/.289 with a pair of homers and four RBI. Thursday's performance was nice enough, but he will have to begin stringing those kinds of games together if he is going to be playable for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Nick Hundley a mysterious late scratch
    Nick Hundley was a last minute scratch Thursday against the Giants.

    Advice: The change was never announced. Hundley was listed in the lineup but Tony Wolters came to the plate when it was his turn to bat in the first inning. It's possible he suffered an injury, though beat writer Nick Groke of the Denver Post said he didn't notice anything unusual with Hundley when he hit before the game. We'll wait for manager Walt Weiss to explain himself before jumping to any conclusions. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:09 pm

  • Wieters has multi-hit game against Yankees
    Matt Wieters went 2-for-4 in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Wieters had two of the Orioles' seven hits against Masahiro Tanaka and company, as hits and runs were hard to come by for both sides. It was Wieters' first multi-hit game in nine games as he continues to struggle at the plate. The backstop has one home run and eight RBI with a .234/.300/.313 line in 18 games this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:33 pm
  • John Ryan Murphy headed for a demotion
    The Twins are expected to demote John Ryan Murphy to Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

    Advice: Murphy continued his season-long slump by going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Thursday. At this point he could probably use a change of scenery. Juan Centeno is expected to take Murphy's vacant roster spot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:57 pm

  • Juan Centeno to be called up Friday
    The Twins are expected to call up Juan Centeno from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

    Advice: The Twins will have to add him to their 40-man roster. John Ryan Murphy will likely be sent down in the corresponding roster move. Centeno's numbers this year are pretty ordinary (.245, 1 HR, 4 RBI in 15 games for Rochester) but the Twins needed to make a change with Murphy struggling mightily (3-for-40 with seven strikeouts). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:52 pm
  • Avila (hamstring) to begin rehab on Friday
    Alex Avila (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

    Advice: Avila was placed on the disabled list with a strained hamstring last week. It sounds like he's making good progress and should be available as soon as he's eligible to come off the disabled list. Dioner Navarro and Hector Sanchez have been filling in behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:15 pm
    15-Day DL
    5:10 pm vs Min
     
  • Montero (back) might skip rehab assignment
    Miguel Montero (back) may not require a rehab assignment.

    Advice: Montero was placed on the disabled list with a back issue last week but didn't show any ill effects at batting practice on Thursday, even hitting a few home runs. There's a good chance he'll return from the disabled list as soon as his 15 days are up. David Ross and Tim Federowicz have been sharing time behind the plate in his absence.

  • Roberto Perez (thumb) to undergo surgery Friday
    Roberto Perez will undergo surgery to repair his broken right thumb on Friday.

    Advice: The Indians will have a better idea of his recovery timeline after the surgery. Regardless, Perez will be facing a lengthy absence. Adam Moore will continue to fill in as Yan Gomes' backup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:36 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Jason Castro homers, knocks in four
    Jason Castro went 2-for-3 with a homer, four RBI and two walks versus the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Castro was hitting .175/.299/.263 with no homers through Monday's action. Now he has two homers in two days, and he's upped his RBI total from two to seven. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:05 pm
  • John Ryan Murphy goes 0-for-4
    John Ryan Murphy went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Wednesday, leaving him 3-for-40 on the season.

    Advice: At least the Twins pitchers had been performing much better with Murphy catching than with Kurt Suzuki behind the plate, well, at least until they gave up 16 runs in this one. The Twins might opt to send down Murphy to give him a chance to sort through his offensive struggles in the minors. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:03 pm

  • Martin hits walk-off against the Rangers
    Russell Martin looped a walk-off single over the head of Nomar Mazara in right field to secure a 4-3 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Martin took reliever Tony Barnette to deep right field with the bases loaded to plate the winning run. It's been a difficult season for the 33-year-old catcher, as he's dealt with neck stiffness that has kept him from playing everyday and has hindered his abilities at the plate. He's hitting .169/.241/.183 and has just one extra-base hit all year, though his walk-off single would've been a double in any other situation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:25 pm
  • Rangers send catcher Brett Nicholas to AAA
    Rangers optioned C Brett Nicholas to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Nicholas was sporting an impressive .876 OPS with four doubles and two home runs in 10 games for the Rangers, but Texas will go with Bryan Holaday and the newly-acquired Bobby Wilson as its catcher tandem. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:15 pm

  • Indians acquire Chris Gimenez from Rangers
    Indians acquired C Chris Gimenez from the Rangers for cash considerations.

    Advice: Gimenez was designated for assignment by the Rangers on May 3. He'll take over as the Indians' backup catcher, with Adam Moore getting shipped out in a corresponding roster move. Gimenez, 33, is a .218/.303/.336 career hitter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:10 am
  • Elias Diaz undergoes right elbow surgery
    Elias Diaz underwent a debridement procedure Tuesday on his injured right elbow.

    Advice: That's a fairly minor surgery, considering the alternatives. Diaz, a 25-year-old catcher, will likely be shut down for the next 7-9 weeks. He is already on the 15-day major league disabled list. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:14 am
    15-Day DL

  • Avila (hamstring) close to rehab assignment
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that Alex Avila (hamstring) is close to rehab games.

    Advice: Avila has been on the 15-day disabled list since April 24 because of a right hamstring. It sounds like the catcher could be ready for activation early next week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:31 pm

  • Perez to have thumb reexamined this week
    Roberto Perez will have his right thumb re-examined by Dr. Thomas Graham on Thursday.

    Advice: Perez was placed on the disabled list over the weekend with a fractured right thumb. Surgery hasn't been ruled out as a possibility. Adam Moore will continue to serve as Yan Gomes' backup. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:03 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs x KC
     
  • Rangers designate Gimenez for assignment
    Rangers designated C Chris Gimenez for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-acquired Bobby Wilson on the 40-man roster. Gimenez was recently sent on a minor league rehab assignment after he began the season on the disabled list with an infection in his ankle. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:10 am
  • Derek Norris goes 0-for-3 against Rockies
    Derek Norris finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts against the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Norris is hitting .145 with 25 strikeouts and just four walks through 83 at-bats. He should rebound and serve as a decent option in two-catcher mixed leagues, but it's been ugly so far. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:18 pm
  • Mesoraco weighing shoulder surgery
    Devin Mesoraco is weighing playing through the labrum tear in his left shoulder.

    Advice: Mesoraco tried to do the same thing last year with a torn labrum in his hip before eventually undergoing surgery. He could do further damage with the shoulder by playing and the Reds aren't expected to contend, so it might be best for him to just go ahead and have the procedure now. "I’m going to definitely have to get surgery at some point," said Mesoraco. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:20 pm

  • John Ryan Murphy exited from Monday's game
    John Ryan Murphy was ejected from Monday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Murphy was tossed after arguing balls and strikes while catching. He went 0-for-1 with a walk before being replaced by Kurt Suzuki behind the plate. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:01 pm

  • Devin Mesoraco has torn labrum in shoulder
    Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 28, with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

    Advice: Brutal news for Mesoraco, who was hoping to rebound after being limited to 23 games last season due to a torn labrum in his hip. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined or if surgery will be required, but he'll obviously be facing a lengthy absence. Tucker Barnhart will likely handle the bulk of the catching duties for now.

  • Devin Mesoraco undergoes MRI on shoulder
    Devin Mesoraco had an MRI on his ailing left shoulder.

    Advice: Mesoraco has now missed four straight starts. That he needed an MRI isn't exactly the best sign. It appears that a trip to the disabled list is very possible. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:22 pm

  • Elias Diaz to undergo surgery on right elbow
    Elias Diaz is scheduled to undergo surgery on his injured right elbow this week.

    Advice: The exact procedure he's facing is unclear. Diaz began experiencing elbow troubles toward the end of spring training and recently had a setback with his rehab. 2015 could become a lost season for the 25-year-old catcher. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:10 pm

  • Martin not ready to play back-to-back games
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Russell Martin (neck) isn't ready to play in back-to-back games yet.

    Advice: He's been battling neck stiffness for the past week. "He's not 100% that's for sure," said Gibbons. "He's gutting it out, really is what he's doing. But you can tell he's favouring it." Josh Thole is getting the start Saturday but Martin should be back behind the plate Sunday with Marcus Stroman on the mound. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:19 pm
  • Devin Mesoraco remains out of Reds lineup
    Devin Mesoraco remains out of the Reds starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It sounds as though Reds manager Bryan Price wanted to give his young backstop a few days off to clear his head after starting the season in a .140/.218/.160 funk with only one RBI. Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate again on Saturday and batting seventh for the Reds against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:35 am

  • Russell Martin not in Jays lineup Saturday

    Cubs placed C Miguel Montero on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a back injury.

    Advice: Montero came down with back stiffness earlier this week and hasn't made much improvement, but the Cubs will hope he only needs two weeks of rest.

    Elias Diaz (elbow) threw for a second consecutive day Wednesday at the Pirates' spring training complex.

    Advice: Diaz was placed on the major league disabled list just before Opening Day after coming down with right elbow soreness in mid-March. The 25-year-old catcher will probably continue to be eased along, and he figures to report to Triple-A Indianapolis rather than Pittsburgh once he returns to full health.

    Russell Martin (neck) is back in the Blue Jays' batting order Wednesday night against the White Sox.

    Advice: Martin has been in and out of the Toronto lineup because of a stiff neck. It's nothing serious. The veteran catcher is off to a rough start this season, slashing just .154/.237/.173 in 17 games played. He'll try to get it going against Chicago lefty Jose Quintana.
