  • 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

  • D'Arnaud's bat, legs lead Braves past Marlins
    Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in the Braves' 8-5 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

    Advice: D'Arnaud scored the first run of the game for the Braves in the third inning, motoring around from first base on Freddie Freeman's triple, and he added RBI hits in the sixth and eighth innings. The 29-year-old, who has played five different positions for the Braves this year, is batting a respectable .276/.349/.366 in 42 games. He's not much to look at, but those in deep NL-only leagues may want to take notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:14 pm

  • Espinosa has two homers, seven RBI in rout
    Danny Espinosa led the charge with two home runs and seven RBI as the Nationals routed the Reds 13-4 on Thursday.

    Advice: Espinosa made his two hits count, cranking a grand slam off Reds starter Brandon Finnegan in the third inning before launching a three-run blast a frame later. It was a strong finish to what was an impressive month for the 29-year-old, as he closes June with nine homers, 21 RBI and 21 runs scored in the month. Espinosa is doing everything he can to keep Trea Turner in the minors for another day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm

  • Peralta has two hits, homer in loss to Royals
    Jhonny Peralta went 2-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Royals on Thursday.

    Advice: The home run was Peralta's third in 20 games thus far this season. He's got 10 RBI and eight runs scored in those 20 games but is hitting just .232/.267/.415 after missing the first two months of the season following thumb surgery. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 pm

  • Ramiro Pena diagnosed with sprained ankle
    Ramiro Pena's MRI revealed a sprained ankle.

    Advice: Pena suffered the injury in last night's loss to Oakland. The injury will keep him out of the lineup for the next 5-7 days, though Pena could be available to pinch-hit this weekend. He's hit .400 with six RBI since arriving in the big leagues about three weeks ago. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:00 pm

  • Tim Anderson goes 3-for-4, draws a walk
    Tim Anderson went 3-for-4 and finally collected his first career walk Thursday against the Twins.

    Advice: Anderson entered the day with a 27/0 K/BB ratio in 82 at-bats. Fortunately, he was hitting .292 anyway (now .314), so the White Sox have kept him in the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:47 pm
  • Sean Rodriguez knocks in four runs
    Sean Rodriguez doubled twice and knocked in four runs Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Rodriguez entered the night with a .675 OPS and no homers in 65 at-bats in June, so he had cooled considerably after his fantastic start. Still, he's been a terrific asset for the Pirates with his production and versatility this year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:33 pm

  • Giants promote Ruben Tejada to majors
    Giants purchased the contract INF Ruben Tejada from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: The Giants picked up Tejada after the Cardinals released him at the beginning of June. He was hitting just .176/.225/.235 in 23 games with the Red Birds. The 26-year-old infielder is in the Giants' lineup for the first time on Wednesday, hitting ninth and playing third against the A's. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:21 pm

  • Descalso finishes perfect 3-for-3 in defeat
    Daniel Descalso went 3-for-3 with two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Descalso picked up an RBI single in the fourth and an RBI double in the ninth. The latter drew the Rockies to within 5-3, but they would not score again. While he has seen just 52 at-bats this season, the utility infielder has done a nice job with his opportunities and is hitting .385/.484/.519 with one homer and 16 RBI. Still, no fantasy upside exists here. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:05 pm
  • Kike Hernandez heading to DL with rib injury
    Dodgers placed OF Kike Hernandez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 28, with left rib cage inflammation.

    Advice: This one comes a bit out of left field, as there was little indication that Hernandez was dealing with any sort of a significant injury. Manager Dave Roberts shed a little light on the unexpected move to the disabled list, telling reporters that Hernandez has been fighting discomfort for the past two weeks. A timetable for his return should be solidified in the coming days. Prior to the disabled list trip, Hernandez owned an uninspiring .189/.280/.346 triple-slash across 143 plate appearances.

  • Russell slugs solo homer vs. Reds
    Addison Russell slugged a solo homer against the Reds on Wednesday.

    Advice: Russell finished the afternoon 1-for-3 with a walk. With a .236/.331/.388 batting line, the 22-year-old hasn’t taken the leap forward many fantasy owners were hoping for this season, but he’s up to eight homers and 41 RBI through 72 games. He’s obviously in a great spot to continue to amass fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:11 pm

  • Miller has two hits vs. BoSox on Wednesday
    Brad Miller went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Wednesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Miller got the start despite lefty David Price on the hill and still managed to have a nice day. Tim Beckham went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and hasn’t really hit anybody this season, so we could see more of Miller against left-handers in the future. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:11 pm

  • Cozart not in Wednesday's lineup
    Zack Cozart is not in Wednesday's lineup versus the Cubs.

    Advice: He's presumably getting a breather. Jose Peraza will start at shortstop while Billy Hamilton will slide into the leadoff spot. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:15 am

  • Javier Baez smacks grand slam Tuesday
    Javier Baez was hitless in his first six trips to the plate but launched a grand slam in his seventh at-bat in the 15th inning of Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Now that's how you turn your night around. Baez lifted a JJ Hoover offering over the center field wall, giving the Cubs some cushion in the extra-inning marathon. The free swinger is hitting just .256/.301/.430 with 40 strikeouts over 172 at-bats, but he's slugged seven homers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:03 pm

  • Miller hits 10th home run in loss to Red Sox
    Brad Miller hit his 10th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Miller connected with a Junichi Tazawa pitch in the seventh inning for the solo bomb. He's now homered four times in his last 11 games after hitting six in his first 58. Miller's .319 batting average over his last 12 games has his overall line up to .248/.299/.455. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:41 pm

  • Holt still dealing with concussion symptoms
    Brock Holt is still dealing with some symptoms from his concussion.

    Advice: Holt began a minor league rehab assignment last week and concussion specialist Micky Collins thinks that he could be able to push through his current symptoms. The Red Sox expect Holt to be activated on Friday if all goes well. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:35 pm

  • Cozart has triple, homer in win over Rangers
    Zack Cozart went 2-for-4 with a triple, home run and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: Cozart lined a two-run triple to center in the fifth inning before hitting a solo homer in the seventh. The home run was his 11th of the season, and it was his first triple this year. The 30-year-old is batting .284/.325/.513 in 62 games, on pace for the best offensive season of his career. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:26 pm
