  • Josh Harrison sitting out on Sunday
    Josh Harrison is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    12:35 pm vs x Hou
  • J.J. Hardy (foot) has boot removed
    J.J. Hardy had the boot on his left foot removed and he will undergo a CT scan.

    Advice: A recent X-ray showed significant healing with Hardy's foot, but he's remained sore. Depends on what the CT scan shows, it sounds like he could resume baseball activities soon. Today, 9:26 am
    15-Day DL
    Top 7, 4-4 x @Cle
  • Kendrys Morales (finger) returns to lineup
    Kendrys Morales (finger) is back in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Morales hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sprained right finger, but he took batting practice Sunday without any issues. He's in the designated hitter spot and hitting fifth against Chris Sale and the White Sox. Today, 9:04 am
  • Mark Teixeira (neck) taking batting practice
    Mark Teixeira (neck) will take batting practice Sunday.

    Advice: If it goes well, he could be back in the lineup Monday. Teixeira hasn't played since Tuesday due to neck injury that's bothered him throughout May. Today, 8:37 am
    Top 7, 2-1 x @TB
  • Jimmy Rollins sitting out on Sunday
    Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Rollins has been on the bench for two straight games and four out of the last seven contests. He's hitting only .231/.288/.343 for the season. Tyler Saladino is at shortstop. Today, 8:24 am
  • Ryan Howard not starting against RHP
    Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's noteworthy because the Phils are facing a right-hander (John Lackey). Howard is batting only .154/.219/.346 and could start losing more and more playing time to Tommy Joseph. Philly also has Andres Blanco at second base over Cesar Hernandez. Today, 8:19 am
  • Pedro Alvarez not in Sunday's lineup
    Pedro Alvarez is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Alvarez has been benched in three of the last four games, and all three times the opponent has had a righty on the mound. The O's are going with Mark Trumbo as their designated hitter and Hyun-soo Kim and Nolan Reimold in left and right field, respectively. Today, 8:02 am
  • Michael Saunders not in Sunday's lineup
    Michael Saunders is absent from the Blue Jays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Ezequiel Carrera is left field. Russell Martin is also on the bench, as Josh Thole is catching R.A. Dickey, as usual. Today, 7:50 am
  • Jayson Werth sitting out on Sunday
    Jayson Werth is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Michael Taylor is in center field and Ben Revere is in left. Today, 7:49 am
  • Matt Adams (back) returns to Cards' lineup
    Matt Adams (back) is back in the Cardinals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Adams didn't start the last two games due to a back issue, although he delivered a pinch-hit, two-run double Saturday. He's batting .393/.443/.696 with four homers and 17 RBI this month. Today, 7:43 am
  • Hyun-soo Kim makes fourth straight start
    Hyun-soo Kim made his fourth straight start in left field Saturday.

    Advice: Rule 5 pick Joey Rickard has struggled of late, which has finally led to Kim getting an extended look. The 28-year-old has been terrific when given a chance this season, batting .386/.460/.455 across 50 plate appearances. He should continue to see regular at-bats if he keeps producing. "I just think he kind of brings some things we kind of need, some selectivity and kind of slow things down here and there," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "First of all, the guy’s going to have to get below .400 before you take him out. I’m not stupid. I don’t care how many at-bats or what kind of hits they are. At some point you go, ‘OK, let’s see.’ Like I told you, nobody really knows who he is or how good he can be." Today, 6:29 am
  • Matt Adams (back) gets pinch-hit double
    Matt Adams (back) knocked a pinch-hit, two-run double in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Adams hasn't started the last couple days due to a minor back issue, but he's fine. He could be in the lineup Sunday. Today, 5:25 am
  • Cliff Pennington activated from disabled list
    Angels activated INF Cliff Pennington from the 15-day disabled list.

    12:35 pm vs ^ Hou
  • Nunez picks up four hits in win
    Eduardo Nunez continued his dream season in Saturday’s 6-5 win over the Mariners, pounding out four hits, including his fifth homer of the year.

    Advice: Nunez is now hitting .333/.363/.510 in one of the more unexpected performances of the year. He’s bounced around from third base to shortstop to second base defensively, which has helped his playing time remain high. Although his .366 BABIP suggests that his batting average should drop, he has an outside chance to hit double-digit homers and steal 20-plus bases. No shortstop did that in 2015. Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Suzuki removed after potential concussion
    Kurt Suzuki left Saturday's game against the Mariners after getting a foul ball to the face mask.

    Advice: The Twins are likely concerned that Suzuki suffered a concussion, but further information should come after the game. Juan Centano replaced the 32-year-old catcher, who was hitting .200/.257/.284 in 106 plate appearances. Yesterday, 8:36 pm
    1:10 pm x @Sea
  • Mark Teixeira unlikely to return on Sunday
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Saturday that he doesn't expect Mark Teixeira (neck) to return on Sunday.

    Advice: While he won't be ready on Sunday, Teixeira is inching close to a return and could rejoin the Bombers lineup on Monday. He has been sidelined since experiencing renewed discomfort in his neck on Wednesday. Yesterday, 11:47 am
    Top 7, 2-1 x @TB
  • Pedro Alvarez not in Friday's lineup
    Pedro Alvarez is not in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It's the second time in five games he's been on the bench even with a righty on the mound. Alvarez has just three hits in his last 24 at-bats and is down to .192/.296/.343 for the season. The Orioles are going with Hyun-soo Kim in left field, Nolan Reimold in right and Mark Trumbo in the designated hitter spot. Friday, 1:21 pm
  • Matt Adams (back) not in Friday's lineup
    Matt Adams (back) is not in the Cardinals' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Adams departed Thursday's game with mid-back stiffness. The good news is he expects to be available to pinch-hit. Brandon Moss is handling first base Friday. Friday, 11:40 am
  • Matt Adams leaves with mid-back stiffness
    Matt Adams left Thursday's game against the Nationals with mid-back stiffness.

    Advice: He went 1-for-2 with a single before exiting in the fifth inning. Brandon Moss, who began the game in left field, has moved to first base. Randal Grichuk came into play center field with Jeremy Hazelbaker moving from center to left. Adams will be reevaluated on Friday. Consider him day-to-day. Thursday, 6:04 pm
  • Morales out with sprained middle finger
    Kendrys Morales will miss 3-4 days with a sprained right middle finger.

    Advice: Morales wasn't in the lineup Wednesday against Minnesota and now we know why. Brett Eibner will fill in at DH Thursday against the White Sox. Morales hasn't found his stroke yet this year. So far, he's hitting just .187 with five homers in 45 appearances. Maybe the time off will do him some good. Thursday, 3:07 pm
  • Mark Teixeira (neck) receives cortisone shot
    Mark Teixeira received a cortisone injection for his sore neck on Thursday.

    Advice: He's expected to miss the next three games, including Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Blue Jays. Teixeira began experiencing renewed discomfort in his neck on Wednesday, but an MRI ruled out anything serious. He should back in action Sunday if the cortisone has the intended effect. Thursday, 11:04 am
    Top 7, 2-1 x @TB
  • Hyun-Soo Kim reaches four times
    Hyun-soo Kim got a rare start over Joey Rickard on Wednesday and went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a walk against the Astros.

    Advice: Ever since the season start, Kim has looked like the player the Orioles signed him to be. Maybe they should give him a real chance to show what he can do? He's 14-for-32 with three doubles, five walks and just two strikeouts in his very limited action. Wednesday, 8:13 pm
  • Mark Teixeira (neck) will have cortisone shot
    Mark Teixeira is scheduled to receive a cortisone shot for his renewed neck discomfort.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the club is not considering placing Teixeira on the disabled list yet, but he's going to have to miss at least a couple more games while the cortisone takes effect. The veteran first baseman underwent an MRI on Wednesday afternoon, which apparently showed no major structural damage. He has been bothered by neck spasms for much of May. Wednesday, 7:29 pm
    Top 7, 2-1 x @TB
  • Saunders homers in Wednesday's win over NYY
    Michael Saunders went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Wednesday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: The 29-year-old outfielder hasn't played 100-plus games since 2013 due to injuries, but he's now hitting .312/.379/.567 with 11 doubles, a triple, and nine homers in just 174 plate appearances. He is swinging the bat so well that he handled clean-up duties for the Blue Jays on Wednesday. His .385 BABIP suggests a serious change-of-fortune is around the corner, but anyone batting in the middle of a potent Blue Jays' lineup should be owned in all leagues. Wednesday, 7:22 pm
  • J.J. Hardy (foot) still feeling soreness
    J.J. Hardy continues to feel soreness in his fractured left foot.

    Advice: Hardy underwent an X-ray last week, one which showed that his foot was healing up nicely. Manager Buck Showalter said on Wednesday that the veteran shortstop is still not to the point where he is ready to take part in any weight-bearing exercises, though. Hardy will head to the team's spring training complex in Sarasota to prepare for rehab work on Friday. He could return around mid-June if the soreness dissipates soon. Wednesday, 4:22 pm
    15-Day DL
    Top 7, 4-4 x @Cle
  • Yankees send Mark Teixeira (neck) for MRI
    Mark Teixeira (neck) underwent an MRI on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Yankees are still waiting on the results of the MRI. Neck spasms have bothered Teixeira on-and-off throughout the month of May. A stint on the disabled list is in play if the testing results are not to the team's liking. Teixeira is hitting just .195/.294/.282 over 149 at-bats this season. Wednesday, 3:36 pm
    Top 7, 2-1 x @TB
  • Teixeira has neck flareup, sitting Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday with renewed neck discomfort.

    Advice: He has three homers in nine career at-bats against the Blue Jays' starter, Marco Estrada, so it's a big absence. Teixeira is considered day-to-day for now. Wednesday, 12:56 pm
    Top 7, 2-1 x @TB
  • Alvarez connects for third homer vs. Astros
    Pedro Alvarez hit his third home run of the season Tuesday against the Astros.

    Advice: Alvarez hit a solo homer off Astros starter Doug Fister in the fifth inning, his only hit in five at-bats. The blast was his first since May 8. Thought to be a potential fantasy sleeper heading into the season after signing with the Orioles in March, the 29-year-old has instead batted .191/.300/.351 with three homers and 10 RBI in 32 games. Tuesday, 10:04 pm
  • Rollins out of White Sox lineup on Tuesday
    Jimmy Rollins is out of the White Sox lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Rollins is batting just .230/.290/.349 in 32 games this season and will continue to get regular days off. Tyler Saladino will start at shortstop and hit ninth Tuesday versus Indians right-hander Josh Tomlin. Tuesday, 12:57 pm
  • Harrison drives in two, swipes seventh base
    Josh Harrison went 2-for-4 with two RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored in the Pirates' 6-3 victory over the Rockies on Monday afternoon.

    Advice: Harrison hit an RBI single in the bottom of the second and then stole second base. He hit another RBI single in the third and scored on a line-drive single by pitcher Wilfredo Boscan. Harrison has registered a respectable .308/.337/.410 batting line with 23 RBI, seven steals, and 17 runs scored in 42 games this season. Monday, 1:10 pm
    Bot 1, 1-0 x @Tex
  • Pennington expected back when eligible
    Cliff Pennington (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday, the first day he's eligible.

    Advice: It's not a surprise, as Pennington resumed running less than a week after straining his hamstring. He'll be in line for regular at-bats once activated with Andrelton Simmons (thumb) on the shelf. May 22, 11:32 am

  • Kendrys Morales not in Sunday's lineup
    Kendrys Morales is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It appears he's just getting a day off. The Royals have Salvador Perez in the designated hitter spot and Drew Butera at catcher. May 22, 9:46 am
  • Ryan Howard expected to sit Sunday
    Ryan Howard is expected to be on the bench Sunday against right-hander Casey Kelly.

    Advice: Phillies manager Pete Mackanin plans to stick with Howard against righties for now despite his .161/.233/.381 batting line, but he'll give him a day off Sunday. If Howard's struggles continue, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Phils eventually give Tommy Joseph everyday at-bats at first base. "I might give Joseph a start [Sunday] just to clear Howie's head just a little bit," Mackanin said. "Then when we go to Detroit, we have the DH, so both of them can play, and we will go from there." May 22, 6:43 am
  • Adams homers and scores three runs in victory
    Matt Adams went 2-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored in a win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Advice: Adams drew the start at first base with lefty Robbie Ray on the mound, a sign that he's gained the trust of manager Mike Matheny, and he responded with the three-run effort. The homer came after Ray had exited, Adams' fourth dinger of the season. The big first baseman has used a strong month of May to raise his overall line to .291/.344/.477 with 17 RBI and 11 runs scored. May 21, 4:04 pm
  • Eduardo Nunez beats Jays with three-run shot
    Eduardo Nunez blasted a three-run homer in the eighth inning on Saturday, capping off a five-run inning that propelled the Twins to a 5-3 victory over J.A. Happ and the Blue Jays.

    Advice: The Twins offense had been held in check all afternoon until the five-run explosion in the eighth. Nunez also doubled in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI. He's now hitting a cool .331/.367/.492 with three long balls and 17 RBI on the season. May 21, 1:57 pm
  • Jimmy Rollins remains out of White Sox lineup
    Jimmy Rollins is once again absent from the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's curious to see the veteran infielder get two days off in a row without any known ailment. Tyler Saladino is once again starting in his place and will bat ninth against Danny Duffy and the Royals. May 21, 8:30 am
  • Saunders has three hits, HR vs. Twins
    Michael Saunders went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Friday’s victory over the Twins.

    Advice: Make that seven homers for Saunders and three in his last nine games. After a lost 2015 season due to a knee injury, the 29-year-old has bounced back in a big way so far by batting .317/.382/.549 through 37 games. His .931 OPS leads the Blue Jays. How’s that for unlikely? May 20, 8:46 pm
  • Jimmy Rollins not in Friday's lineup
    Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's just getting a day off. Tyler Saladino is at shortstop. May 20, 12:30 pm
  • Cliff Pennington (hamstring) resumes running
    Cliff Pennington (hamstring) did some running on Thursday.

    Advice: Pennington is a week removed from a left hamstring strain. "I think he feels a lot more comfortable right now," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. It's unclear whether Pennington will require a rehab assignment before being activated, but he's making progress. May 20, 6:39 am

  • Adams collects four RBI in win over Rockies
    Matt Adams went 2-for-3 with four RBI in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Adams stepped to the plate with runners in scoring position in both the first and fourth innings, and he came through both times, twice knocking two-run singles as part of a 13-run barrage. The big first baseman continues to punish right-handed pitching as he's now got three homers and 13 RBI against righties as opposed to zero homers and three RBI against southpaws. Adams should continue to be deployed against right-handers, and he owns a .275/.333/.425 line overall. May 19, 9:36 pm
  • Rollins has stolen base, run scored vs. Stros
    Jimmy Rollins had a single, a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Rollins has found ways to contribute often, swiping his fourth base and scoring his 20th run in the game. He's hitting just .239/.297/.368 but isn't being pushed by Tyler Saladino for his starting job. May 19, 7:43 pm
  • Jayson Werth defers $10 million of 2016 salary
    According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Jayson Werth had $10 million of his 2016 salary deferred with five percent simple interest.

    Advice: That money will be paid back in 2018. Werth actually had his contract amended in October but the details weren't revealed until recently. The revised deal will net Werth an extra $1 million while giving the Nats some short-term financial flexibility. The Nats have already used some of that savings on a new deal for Stephen Strasburg. May 19, 6:48 pm
  • X-ray shows healing in J.J. Hardy's left foot
    A follow-up X-ray on J.J. Hardy's fractured left foot showed significant healing.

    Advice: The fracture is almost fully healed, Hardy told reporters Thursday. He'll head to the Orioles' spring training complex in Sarasota, Florida on Friday to begin ramping up his workouts toward full baseball activities. Then comes a minor league rehab assignment. The original timetable from May 2 had Hardy missing 6-8 weeks, and that still probably holds. May 19, 8:17 am

  • Mark Teixeira goes 0-for-5 against Arizona
    Mark Teixeira went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Teixeira wasn't supposed to be one of the Yankees' problems this year after his outstanding 2015, but here he is with a .203 average and about four times as many strikeouts (41) as RBI (11) in 133 at-bats. He's a big reason the team is struggling so mightily when it comes to scoring runs, and the Yankees should think about giving him some bench time after Alex Rodriguez returns. May 18, 10:12 pm
