  • Dietrich hit in head by liner in dugout
    X-rays came back negative after Derek Dietrich was hit in the back of the head by a line drive which ricocheted off a wall in the dugout during Sunday's game against the Braves.

    Advice: Dietrich went 3-for-3 with a home run, a walk, and a career-high four RBI before being hit by the liner in the ninth inning. He was on the ground for several minutes before eventually walking to the clubhouse, but never lost consciousness. He was expected to remain in Atlanta overnight for evaluation. The Marlins should have more information on his status on Monday. Yesterday, 9:26 pm
    4:10 pm vs Pit
  • Asdrubal Cabrera goes deep in loss to Dodgers
    Asdrubal Cabrera swatted a solo home run off of Clayton Kershaw on Sunday night, but it wasn't enough for the Mets to overcome the Dodgers.

    Advice: Cabrera's sixth-inning blast pulled the Mets to within a run at 2-1. It was the lone hit in four at-bats on the night for the shortstop who is now slashing .277/.330/.401 with four homers and 18 RBI on the season. Yesterday, 8:17 pm
  • Marcell Ozuna clubs 10th homer, Marlins roll
    Marcell Ozuna clubbed his 10th home run of the season as the Marlins topped the Braves 7-3 on Sunday in Atlanta.

    Advice: Ozuna's blast off Ian Krol put the icing on the cake in the final inning. He has had a resurgent season at the plate under the tutelage of hitting coach Barry Bonds, slashing a robust .344/.392/.598 with 10 long balls and 27 RBI. Yesterday, 6:46 pm
  • Cueto defeats Rockies to improve to 8-1
    Johnny Cueto earned his eighth victory of the season on Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits over six innings against the Rockies at Coors Field.

    Advice: The right-hander punched out five while walking two in the contest. He has been everything that the Giants could have hoped for thus far, registering a 2.31 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 72/14 K/BB ratio across 81 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling when he takes on Cardinals in St. Louis on Friday. Yesterday, 6:31 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez belts eighth homer in loss
    Carlos Gonzalez belted his eighth home run of the season as the Rockies fell to the Giants on Sunday afternoon in Colorado.

    Advice: His solo shot came in the eighth inning, after the outcome of the game had already been long decided. Gonzalez also singled in the ballgame, finishing the day 2-for-4 to raise his season slash to .297/.335/.484 to go along with eight homers and 18 RBI. Yesterday, 6:27 pm
  • Bradley pitches into eighth inning vs. Padres
    Archie Bradley pitched into the eighth inning Sunday in the Diamondbacks' 6-3 defeat of the Padres.

    Advice: Bradley gave up a run in the top of the second on a Christian Bethancourt RBI single, a run in the top of the top of the fifth on an Alexei Ramirez homer, and one more in the top of the eighth on a Wil Myers groundout. But he yielded only four total hits and one walk over 7 1/3 official frames while striking out nine. The former top prospect has been terrific this season at Triple-A Reno and might finally be ready to translate his strong minor league numbers to the major league level. There is legit fantasy upside here. Yesterday, 3:59 pm
  • Jay Bruce notches solo home run in lost cause
    Jay Bruce went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Bruce burned Jimmy Nelson for a long solo tater to right in the second inning. The bomb was his ninth of the season. Along with that homer tally, the 29-year-old outfielder is slashing .262/.317/.512 and has driven in 31 runs across 164 at-bats. Yesterday, 3:05 pm
  • Jimmy Nelson impresses in win over Reds
    Jimmy Nelson pitched well in Sunday's win over the Reds, allowing two runs on six hits over 7 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Nelson struck out five and walked two, with only a Jay Bruce solo homer and Tucker Barnhart RBI double play in the second inning doing damage to the scoreboard. The 26-year-old right-hander is in the midst of his best major league season and holds a 2.88 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 59/28 K/BB ratio through 11 starts (72 innings). He will look to continue his roll in a road date with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber. Yesterday, 3:00 pm
  • Yunel Escobar day-to-day with bruised wrist
    Yunel Escobar is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a bruised right wrist.

    Advice: Escobar was lifted from Sunday's game against the Astros after injuring his wrist while diving for a ball. Angels fans and fantasy owners alike can breathe a sigh of relief though the it's nothing serious and Escobar should return to the Angels lineup in a day or two. Yesterday, 2:13 pm
    6:05 pm vs Det
  • Yunel Escobar leaves game with wrist injury
    Yunel Escobar was removed from Sunday's game against the Astros with an apparent wrist injury.

    Advice: Escobar sustained the injury diving for a ground ball. The Angels have been decimated by injuries throughout the season, and it would be another big blow if they lose their leadoff hitter for any significant amount of time. Expect an update on his status shortly. Yesterday, 1:16 pm
    6:05 pm vs Det
  • Longoria hits RBI single for only Rays run
    Evan Longoria went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Longoria came through with an RBI single against Nathan Eovaldi in the third inning. It would provide the Rays' only run of the game. The veteran third baseman is hitting .254/.301/.461 with nine homers and 25 RBI across 193 at-bats. Yesterday, 1:05 pm
  • Carlos Gomez (ribs) to be activated Tuesday
    Carlos Gomez (ribs) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.

    Advice: Gomez will play his fifth and likely final rehab game on Sunday. He's 5-for-17 with one homer in his first four contests as he works his way back from a bruised left rib cage. "I think he's feeling a lot better, which is the number one priority," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of Gomez. "Getting production out of him is the second phase of this." Yesterday, 12:35 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Jimenez's rotation spot on shaky ground?
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that Ubaldo Jimenez is the "projected" starter for the club on Thursday.

    Advice: While Jimenez is currently penciled in to start, it sounds like it's not a guarantee that he'll take the ball that day. It's not a surprise that it appears the O's are considering a change, as the righty lasted just 1 2/3 innings Saturday and now holds a 6.36 ERA. Yesterday, 9:28 am
  • Archie Bradley recalled for Sunday start
    Diamondbacks recalled RHP Archie Bradley from Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: He will start on Sunday against the Padres in place of Shelby Miller (finger). Bradley holds a 6.26 ERA over 10 starts at the major league level, but he's put up a 1.99 ERA with 47 strikeouts over 40 2/3 frames at Reno this season. With Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) also on the shelf, Bradley could stick in the rotation for a while if he pitches well. He's worth a look in deeper formats. Yesterday, 9:19 am
  • Lincecum's Angels debut slated for June 12
    Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports that Tim Lincecum is expected to make his debut with the Angels on June 12.

    Advice: Lincecum threw approximately 75 pitches in an extended spring training game on Saturday and his next appearance will be with Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. He'll make one additional start for Salt Lake on June 7 before joining the Halos' rotation. "Everything felt pretty good," Lincecum said of his appearance in extended spring. "What I asked for and what the Angels are giving me is just time to move along at my own pace and figure out things that I need to." Yesterday, 7:40 am

  • Workman (elbow) pitching in extended spring
    Brandon Workman (elbow) has been making appearances in extended spring training games.

    Advice: Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Workman will remain in extended spring until short-season Lowell opens their season on June 17. He could be an option for the Red Sox' bullpen at some point in the second half. Yesterday, 6:32 am
    60-Day DL
    10:35 am @Bal
  • Hughes roughed up a bit in win
    Phil Hughes gave up four earned runs on nine hits and three walks in just 4 2/3 innings in Saturday’s win over the Mariners.

    Advice: It could’ve been worse. The Mariners had the bases loaded four different times against Hughes, but hitters went 0-for-4 with a double play in those situations. That helped the right-hander limit the damage, despite the 12 baserunners. He now has a 5.74 ERA with only 30 strikeouts in 53 1/3 innings and will next get the Rays at home. Saturday, 10:41 pm
  • Jimenez battered again, this time by Indians
    Ubaldo Jimenez gave up six runs for the third straight start -- although just three were earned -- in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: A fielding error in the first inning made three of the Indians' four runs unearned, but it's not as though Jimenez was much better. The right-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and walking three before exiting. He's now 2-6 with a 6.36 ERA for a team with aspirations of winning the AL East. It's hard to imagine they'll continue running him out there much longer when he's pitching like this, but his next scheduled start, until further notice, is set for Thursday against the Red Sox. Saturday, 5:18 pm
  • Longoria has homer, four RBI in win over NYY
    Evan Longoria went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI as the Rays beat the Yankees 9-5 on Saturday.

    Advice: Longoria connected on a Michael Pineda pitch for a two-run shot in the second inning. The homer was his ninth of the season, giving him 24 RBI and 26 runs scored. The 30-year-old is slashing .254/.302/.466 overall. Saturday, 4:48 pm
  • Ozuna stays hot with three more hits
    Marcell Ozuna stayed hot Friday against the Braves by going 3-for-4 with an RBI double.

    Advice: Ozuna has now reached base safely in 34 consecutive games. The 25-year-old has hit safely in nine straight games, including six straight multi-hit games. He’s batting .343/.387/.591 overall. It appears that the breakout is upon us. Friday, 8:16 pm
  • Archie Bradley to start for D'Backs on Sunday
    Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale announced Friday that Archie Bradley will be recalled from Triple-A Reno to start in place of the injured Shelby Miller on Sunday.

    Advice: Bradley has been outstanding at Triple-A this year, but has again struggled in his spot starts with the big league club. While the talent is there, he makes for a risky fantasy proposition until he shows the ability to get major league hitters out on a consistent basis. Friday, 3:53 pm
  • Cabrera (back) returns to Mets' lineup Fri.
    Asdrubal Cabrera (back) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Cabrera had to leave Wednesday's game due to back spasms, but he rested up during the off day Thursday and is now ready to go. He's at shortstop and batting second against Julio Urias and the Dodgers. Friday, 12:19 pm
  • CarGo hits two-run homer in win over Red Sox
    Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

    Advice: CarGo jumped on a Clay Buchholz pitch in the fourth inning for the two-run shot. The homer was his sixth of the season, as he oddly has just 15 RBI but 29 runs scored in 45 games. He's been heating up in his last four games, going 8-for-16 to raise his overall line to .287/.328/.455. Thursday, 7:35 pm
  • Archie Bradley to replace Shelby Miller?
    Archie Bradley did not make his scheduled start Thursday for Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: Zack Godley got the start in his place. It looks like Bradley will make his next start in the major leagues. There's a good chance this has something to do with Shelby Miller, who has struggled all year while dealing with finger discomfort. Miller was scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Padres. Bradley has dominated in the minors this year with five wins and a 1.99 ERA. He hasn't been as successful in the majors, collecting a 7.84 ERA in two spot starts for the Diamondbacks. Thursday, 6:32 pm
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (back) hopes to play Friday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (back) hopes to return for Friday's series opener versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Cabrera made an early exit from Wednesday's series finale against the Nationals after experiencing back spasms. "All of a sudden, it locked up on him downstairs as he was stretching," Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday night. "He says he feels fine and will be ready for Friday. I hope he is." Cabrera is batting .283/.335/.392 with three home runs and 17 RBI in 46 games this season for New York. Thursday, 7:13 am
  • Ozuna drives in a pair in win over TB
    Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Ozuna got on base three times, but did most of his damage with a two-RBI single that beat the Rays' shift. He had been left for dead after hitting .229/.297/.410 in April, but the 25-year-old has torn the cover off the baseball in the month of May. On the season, he now owns a .331/.378/.587 slash line with nine homers and 25 RBI in 185 plate appearances. Wednesday, 8:18 pm
  • Carlos Gomez (ribs) hits homer at Double-A
    Carlos Gomez (ribs) hit a solo home run in a rehab game Wednesday night with Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: It was his first home run at any level of baseball since the calendar turned to 2016. Gomez ultimately finished the night 1-for-4 and is now 1-for-8 through two rehab games. The center fielder was batting just .182 with a .486 OPS in 34 games for Houston when he landed on the disabled list May 16 with a bruised left rib cage. He'll be back in the majors next week. Wednesday, 7:51 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Asdrubal Cabrera pulled due to back spasms
    Asdrubal Cabrera is day-to-day with back spasms.

    Advice: Cabrera left Wednesday's game against the Nationals in the bottom of the first inning, with Matt Reynolds taking over at shortstop. Asdrubal apparently felt the discomfort during pregame warmups. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but you never know with the Mets and their recent rash of back issues. Wednesday, 10:28 am
  • Carlos Gomez (ribs) goes 0-for-3 in rehab
    Carlos Gomez (ribs) went 0-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch in his minor league rehab debut with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Gomez, on the 15-day disabled list since May 16 with a bruised left rib cage, should be ready to for activation when first eligible next week. He was batting just .182 with a .486 OPS over his first 34 games this season for Houston, but the dynamic 30-year-old center fielder seems like a pretty good buy-low target in standard fantasy leagues. Tuesday, 8:08 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Jimmy Nelson strikes out eight against Braves
    Jimmy Nelson struck out eight batters over six innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nelson scattered four hits and three walks, with only a Mallex Smith RBI triple in the fifth inning counting against him. Nelson has now turned in three straight starts of six innings or more with two runs or fewer allowed, lowering his season ERA to 2.92. Unfortunately for the 26-year-old, he's 0-1 in that three-game span and just 4-3 overall. Nelson will look for a better fate Sunday against the Reds. Tuesday, 7:21 pm
  • Carlos Gomez (rib cage) ready for rehab stint
    Carlos Gomez (rib cage) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: Gomez landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a bruised left rib cage. He's not eligible to return until the beginning of June, but getting a bunch of at-bats in the minors isn't the worst idea for him. He's batting just .182 with a .486 OPS in 34 games this season. Tuesday, 12:25 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Johnny Cueto goes nine to beat Padres
    Johnny Cueto pitched a two-hit shutout Monday against the Padres to improve to 7-1 on the season.

    Advice: There's no telling whether his elbow will hold up for the long haul, but Cueto is an elite hurler again following that rough spell in Kansas City. Evading the home run ball has always been his strongest suit, and now that he's in a pitcher's park, rather than hitter friendly Cincinnati, he's doing better than ever, serving up just two long balls in 75 2/3 innings to date this year. Monday, 10:27 pm
  • Marcell Ozuna homers again in Marlins' win
    Marcell Ozuna stayed hot Monday, going 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in a win over the Rays.

    Advice: Ozuna's blast to left field in the third inning off of Matt Moore was a mammoth shot measure at nearly 450 feet. The Marlins' outfielder has put together a fantastic May with a .397/.420/.705 batting line and five home runs over 21 games. He's up to .321/.364/.576 with nine dingers on the season. Monday, 8:11 pm
  • Lincecum throws simulated game
    Tim Lincecum threw a simulated game on Monday.

    Advice: Lincecum will throw one more before getting into game action with Triple-A Salt Lake. He's expected to make at least two starts in the minors before joining the Angels, which puts him on track for around mid-June. Monday, 3:02 pm

    6:05 pm vs Det
  • Ubaldo Jimenez blasted again in loss to Halos
    Ubaldo Jimenez was blasted again in Sunday's loss to the Angels, giving up six runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Jimenez walked three and struck out three in the contest. After scratching out a run in the second inning, the Angels erupted for five in the third. It's actually a minor miracle that Jimenez was able to regain his composure and pitch into the sixth inning. While he'll remain in the rotation for now, he owns a troublesome 6.04 ERA and 1.78 WHIP on the season and shouldn't be in any fantasy lineups for Saturday's start against the Indians in Cleveland. May 22, 5:21 pm
  • Hughes allows three runs over six in loss
    Phil Hughes allowed three earned runs over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Toronto scored all three of those runs in the top of the first, on solo homers by Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson and an RBI double from Troy Tulowitzki. Hughes did settle in after that, but he got very little help from the Minnesota offense in falling to 1-7 on the year. A road start against the Mariners is next. May 22, 1:48 pm
  • Bradley racks up 9 Ks in Saturday's win
    Diamondbacks RHP prospect Archie Bradley fanned nine over eight scoreless innings Saturday in a win for Triple-A Reno.

    Advice: He held Omaha to three hits while throwing 68 of his 108 pitches for strikes. Bradley has done a marvelous job for Reno this year, limiting opponents to a .191 average with 47 strikeouts in 136 at-bats. He's tied for second in the Pacific Coast League with five wins and is also second in ERA (1.99). The 23-year-old has been called up to the Diamondbacks twice this year, though neither start was particularly memorable (7.84 ERA over 10 1/3 innings). May 22, 11:58 am
  • Tim Lincecum to report to Triple-A soon
    Tim Lincecum is expected to join Triple-A Salt Lake's rotation around the end of May.

    Advice: Linececum is still throwing at extended spring training for now. He'll make at least two starts for Salt Lake before joining the Angels' rotation, putting him in line to return to the majors in mid-June if all goes well. May 22, 11:14 am

  • Jay Bruce (knee) back in lineup Sunday
    Jay Bruce (knee) is back in the Reds' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Bruce was a late scratch Saturday due to a sore left knee, but he's fine. He's in right field and batting fifth against Wade Miley and the Mariners. May 22, 7:19 am
  • Jay Bruce (knee) expects to return Sunday
    Jay Bruce (knee) expects to play on Sunday.

    Advice: He was a late scratch Saturday against Seattle. Bruce's knee is sore from running into the wall Friday night but it looks like the injury will only cost him one game. Tyler Holt got the nod in right field with Bruce sidelined on Saturday. May 21, 6:21 pm
  • Longoria hits eighth home run versus Tigers
    Evan Longoria hit his eighth home run of the season in a loss to the Tigers on Saturday.

    Advice: Longoria's solo homer in the sixth inning was the only offense the Rays could muster against Tigers starter Michael Fulmer. It was his second homer during a nine-game hitting streak during which he's 13-for-38 (.342) with five doubles and nine runs scored. The veteran third baseman is hitting .258/.303/.485 in 40 games this year. May 21, 5:23 pm
  • Carlos Gomez (ribs) could begin rehab soon
    Carlos Gomez (rib cage) worked out at Minute Maid Park on Saturday.

    Advice: He expects to do the same on Sunday. If that goes well, Gomez would likely begin a week-long rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi. The two-time All-Star has struggled mightily this year, hitting just .182 with 46 strikeouts in 121 at-bats. May 21, 2:34 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Jay Bruce (knee) scratched from Reds lineup
    Jay Bruce was scratched from the Reds starting lineup on Saturday due to soreness in his left knee.

    Advice: It'll be Tyler Holt starting in his place in right field and batting second for the Reds. The injury doesn't appear to be anything major, but is something worth monitoring going forward. Bruce is hitting .273/.329/.525 with eight homers and 27 RBI through 38 games this season. May 21, 12:02 pm
  • Carlos Gonzalez absent from Rockies lineup
    Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's tilt against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

    Advice: With left-hander Jon Niese on the hill for the Pirates, Walt Weiss figures it's a good day to give his oft-injured outfielder a breather. Lefty-masher Ryan Raburn is starting in his place and will bat fifth for the Rockies on Saturday. May 21, 9:34 am
  • Marcell Ozuna goes deep in loss to Nationals
    Marcell Ozuna clubbed his eighth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Nationals on Friday.

    Advice: His solo blast off Tanner Roark in the fourth inning accounted for the Marlins lone run in the contest. Ozuna finished the night 1-for-4. He's off to a terrific start to the 2016 campaign, slashing .303/.350/.533 with eight homers and 22 RBI. May 20, 7:07 pm
  • Lincecum likely to need 20-30 days in minors
    Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Friday that he expects Tim Lincecum to need 20-30 days in the minors before joining the major league rotation.

    Advice: That puts him in line to make his Angels' debut around the middle of June. Lincecum's one-year contract with the Angels became official on Friday, and Eppler says the veteran right-hander has "earned" the right to tell the club when he's ready to start a major league game.

  • Gomez (ribs) could resume activities soon
    The Astros are hopeful that Carlos Gomez (rib cage) will be ready to resume baseball activities early next week.

    Advice: "We're shooting for maybe next week sometime," manager A.J. Hinch said Thursday. "I'm going to talk to him today and I'll probably meet up with him over the weekend in Houston and we'll develop a plan, but we're hopeful to get him back into baseball activities by early next week." While Gomez appears close to resuming baseball activities, it might be a while before he is activated. The Astros could use most, if not all, of the allotted 20 days on a rehab assignment for Gomez to work on his swing after a really rough start to the season. May 20, 6:31 am
    15-Day DL
