  • Holt (concussion) has two doubles in return
    Brock Holt (concussion) went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in his return from the disabled list Friday versus the Angels.

    Advice: Both of his hits were doubles. Holt ended up missing about five weeks with concussion symptoms, but he should see a lot of time in left field now that he’s back in action. He doesn’t offer a lot of upside in fantasy leagues, but his multi-position eligibility can help some rosters. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago

  • Nimmo connects for first MLB homer in win
    Brandon Nimmo connected for his first major league homer in a 10-2 win over the Cubs on Friday.

    Advice: According to StatCast, Nimmo’s fourth-inning blast traveled 442 feet, which is the longest home run by a Mets player this season. The 23-year-old went 2-for-3 on the night and is batting .280 (7-for-25) through his first six games in the majors. He’s bringing some energy out of the leadoff spot for New York and could be worth a try in deeper mixed leagues for however long he stays there. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:34 pm
  • Steven Souza to rejoin Rays on Saturday
    Rays manager Kevin Cash announced Friday that Steven Souza (hip) will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: Taylor Motter has been optioned to Triple-A to create a spot on the roster. The Rays are in desperate need for help on offense, which Souza should provide. Before landing on the shelf with his hip injury, Souza was hitting .255/.315/.443 with 10 homers and 25 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:05 pm
  • Rays option Taylor Motter back to Triple-A
    Rays optioned INF/OF Taylor Motter to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Steven Souza will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday, and someone had to be sent out to make room, with Motter being the odd-man out. The utility man should get another shot with the big league club later this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:03 pm

  • Ender Inciarte day-to-day with groin injury
    Ender Inciarte was forced to leave Friday's game against the Marlins due to a minor right groin injury.

    Advice: He's listed as day-to-day and should return to the lineup before the end of the weekend. Fantasy owners should have an alternative option ready though if he isn't in Saturday's lineup. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:01 pm

  • Dodgers bring back Will Venable from Triple-A
    Dodgers purchased the contract of OF Will Venable from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Venable had just been outrighted to Triple-A last week, but he's needed back to provide depth in the outfield with Joc Pederson heading to the disabled list. He could be worth a look in NL-only formats where you can skim him against right-handed pitching. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:56 pm
    W, 5-0 vs x Col
     
  • Presley declines assignment, now free agent

  • Blake Swihart (ankle) hits in the cage

  • Brock Holt activated from disabled list
    Red Sox activated INF/OF Brock Holt from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: The Red Sox have said that Holt is still dealing with some symptoms of a concussion, but they apparently think it's something he'll be able to play through. He should get regular time in left field. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:27 am

    Hyun Soo Kim went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Kim cracked a solo home run off Mariners starter Taijuan Walker to lead off the seventh inning. One inning later, he notched an RBI single. The 28-year-old rookie has been used as a part-time piece this season and is hitting a crisp .344/.433/.484 with eight doubles, three homers and 11 RBI across 122 at-bats.

    Cameron Maybin went 3-for-4 with four RBI, including a three-run double in the ninth inning that capped an eight-run inning for the visitors, as the Tigers beat the Rays 10-7 on Thursday.

    Advice: Maybin led off the ninth inning with a single, and five runs later, he finished off the Rays with a bases-loaded double that put the Tigers ahead for good. During a modest six-game hitting streak, Maybin is 11-for-24 with three doubles, seven RBI and five runs scored. He's got 20 RBI and 25 runs scored in 39 games total, and the 29-year-old is hitting .359/.413/.428 on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:51 pm

    Mets GM Sandy Alderson says Juan Lagares (thumb) could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: Lagares went on the disabled list a couple weeks ago with a sprained left thumb. So far he's recorded three hits in his first two rehab games for Double-A Binghamton. Before the injury, Lagares was hitting .289 with two homers in 90 at-bats. He could see regular playing time with Curtis Granderson still recovering from a strained calf.

  • Jason Heyward dealing with side soreness
    Jason Heyward has been dealing with muscle tightness in his left side for a few days.

    Advice: Heyward suffered the injury making a throw from right field. He's healthy enough to play but manager Joe Maddon decided to play it safe by giving him another day off Thursday against Mets left-hander Steven Matz. Heyward should be back in the lineup on Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm
  • Stephen Piscotty (foot) not in Cards lineup
    Stephen Piscotty (foot) is not in the Cardinals starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Piscotty bruised his left foot while attempting to make a diving catch during Wednesday's game, so he'll sit out on Thursday as a precautionary measure. Brandon Moss will start in right field with Kolten Wong manning center. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:37 pm
    W, 7-1 vs x Mil
     
  • Steven Souza begins rehab assignment Friday
    Steven Souza (hip) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Friday.

    Advice: Souza took live batting practice against Alex Cobb and Chase Whitley on Thursday, taking each right-hander deep in the process.

  • Jason Heyward sitting out on Thursday
    Jason Heyward is not in the Cubs' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: He's sitting out for the second straight day against a lefty. The Cubs have Ben Zobrist in right field, Matt Szczur in left, Albert Almora in center and Javier Baez at second base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:40 pm

  • Stephen Piscotty nursing foot injury
    Stephen Piscotty might not play Thursday due to a bruised left foot.

    Advice: Piscotty banged his left foot while making an attempt at a diving catch Wednesday. He remained in the game but didn't look totally comfortable. X-rays ruled out any fractures, though, and he should be considered day-to-day. "Double-swelling going on there," he said. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:31 am

  • Piscotty hits extra-inning home run vs Royals
    Stephen Piscotty hit a game-tying home run in the bottom of the 10th inning on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Cardinals eventually lost to the Royals in 12 innings. Piscotty went 2-for-6 to boost his line to .288/.369/.466 on the season. He has nine home runs, 45 runs and 40 RBI. Even though he is not a big slugger, his blend of power and average is valuable to any fantasy roster. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:06 pm

  • Brandon Nimmo notches first two hits
    Brandon Nimmo notched his first two major league hits in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: They weren't exactly screamers, as Nimmo hit a soft liner that fell in right field in his first at-bat and then hit a cue shot to third base in his second at-bat that went for an infield single. But, hey, the youngster will take it. Nimmo is in line to receive regular playing time in left field against righties while Michael Conforto irons out his issues in the minors.

    Advice: Souza reported feeling good after hitting in the cage in each of the past two days. He was also scheduled to do some running Monday for the first time since his hip injury earlier this month. Barring a setback, he should rejoin the Rays before the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:49 pm
  • Souza (hip) to take batting practice Monday
    Steven Souza (hip) will take batting practice on Monday.

    Advice: Souza has been limited to hitting in a cage so far but he'll be on the field for Monday's BP session at Tropicana Field. He should be close to beginning a rehab assignment.

  • Brandon Nimmo won't start Saturday's game
    Brandon Nimmo won't be in the starting lineup Saturday against the Braves.

    Advice: He didn't arrive in Atlanta until late in the afternoon so manager Terry Collins decided to give him a day to get settled. Alejandro De Aza will grab the start in left field and bat seventh against Braves right-hander Julio Teheran. Nimmo should be in the lineup to make his major league debut Sunday in the series finale. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:12 pm
  • Motter hitless in loss to Orioles
    Taylor Motter went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Saturday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Motter is now batting .174/.275/.290 on the year. He’s been getting playing time in the outfield recently due to a long list of injuries for the Rays, but Oswaldo Arcia’s arrival should change that. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:27 pm

  • Mets recall OF Brandon Nimmo from Triple-A
    Mets recalled OF Brandon Nimmo from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: With Michael Conforto headed down the minors, Nimmo should see plenty of playing time in the Mets' outfield in the coming days. He could slot in as the primary left fielder against right-handed pitching, but he's also capable of playing center field. The 2011 first-round pick was batting .328/.409/.508 with five home runs, 37 RBI, and five stolen bases over 63 games this season in Triple-A. He's worth a shot in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:30 pm
  • Mets calling up prospect OF Brandon Nimmo
    The Mets are expected to call up prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo on Saturday.

    Advice: He's set to replace Michael Conforto, who will reportedly be demoted. The Mets' first-round pick from 2011, Nimmo has put himself back on the prospect map this season by batting .328/.409/.508 with five home runs, 37 RBI, and five stolen bases over 63 games this season in Triple-A. Of course, those numbers are in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, so they have to be taken with a grain of salt, but he figures to see plenty of playing time in the Mets' outfielder now that Conforto is headed to the minors. He's more of a wait-and-see option in mixed fantasy leagues, but he should be owned in NL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:06 am
  • Jennings out for first game of doubleheader
    Desmond Jennings is not in the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

    Advice: Jaff Decker will make the start in center field instead. Taylor Motter will play right field and Corey Dickerson is in left. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:06 am

  • Maybin nets three hits but Tigers lose
    Cameron Maybin continued his hot hitting with a 3-for-4 night at the plate on Friday.

    Advice: All three hits were singles. He also drew a walk. Maybin has hit only one home run in 34 games, but his .821 OPS is by far the best of his career. He is now batting .352/.413/.408 in his first season in the American League since his brief debut with the Tigers in 2007. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:52 pm
  • Will Venable designated for assignment
    Dodgers designated OF Will Venable for assignment.

    Advice: Signed less than two weeks ago, Venable picked up one hit in 10 at-bats during his brief time with the Dodgers. He'll likely clear waivers and accept an outright assignment in order to retain a big league contract. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:33 pm
    W, 5-0 vs x Col
     
  • Brandon Nimmo drives in four runs Wednesday
    Mets OF prospect Brandon Nimmo reached base four times in Wednesday's win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: He walked, doubled, singled twice and drove in four runs as the 51s outlasted Reno for a 12-10 win. The 2011 first-round pick has enjoyed a breakout year, hitting .329 with five homers, 37 RBI and five steals. He leads the Pacific Coast League with seven triples and is also sixth in one base percentage (.413). It's going to be hard for the Mets to keep Nimmo in the minor leagues if he continues to swing a hot bat. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:22 am
  • Blake Swihart (ankle) sheds walking boot
    Blake Swihart (ankle) is out of a walking boot and has been cleared for throwing.

    Advice: Red Sox manager John Farrell called the progress "encouraging" while also cautioning that Swihart is still a long way away from playing in games. Swihart suffered a severe left ankle sprain while jumping against an outfield wall back in early June. The initial thought was that he might miss the remainder of the 2016 season, but a return in August seems plausible. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:17 am

  • Cameron Maybin getting day off Thursday
    Cameron Maybin is sitting out Thursday.

    Advice: Andrew Romine will start in center field and bat ninth versus Mariners right-hander Adrian Sampson. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:57 am
  • Maybin has two-run triple against Mariners
    Cameron Maybin went 2-for-5 with a two-run triple and a run scored Monday against the Mariners.

    Advice: The fourth-inning triple was surprisingly the first of the year for the speedy Maybin, who now has 25 for his career. He's got 13 RBI and 19 runs scored in 30 games since coming off the disabled list, and the 29-year-old is batting a cool .354/.411/.416. If he keeps his spot near the top of the Tigers order, those counting stats should continue to swell as the season wears on. Rotoworld.com Jun 20, 9:02 pm
