  • Carter hits 17th homer in win over Angels
    Chris Carter hit his 17th home run of the season against the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Carter hit a two-run dinger off Angels starter C.J. Wilson in the second inning, his only hit in four at-bats. He seems to be more boom-or-bust than usual of late -- Carter has five hits this month, but three of them have been homers. The 28-year-old is hitting a paltry .185/.297/.389 with 17 homers and 45 RBI overall. Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Cervelli has three-hit effort versus Twins
    Francisco Cervelli went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: The 29-year-old was a quiet pickup this past offseason after the Pirates lost Russell Martin, but he's been an offensive plus for the Bucs this year. The multi-hit game was Cervelli's fourth in a row, raising his line to .301/.367/.410 with 32 RBI and 32 runs scored on the season. Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Trevor Plouffe goes on paternity leave
    Twins placed 3B Trevor Plouffe on the paternity leave list.

    Advice: He can miss up to three games. Jorge Polanco has taken Plouffe's spot on the roster and we could see Miguel Sano get some time at third base the next couple days. Yesterday, 8:55 pm

  • Votto hits three-run homer in win over Cards
    Joey Votto went 3-for-3 with a three-run home run as the Reds shut out the Cardinals 4-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Votto hit a single and a double to go along with his three-run homer in the sixth inning. The multi-hit game was his eighth in his last 11 contests, including five three-hit outings. After a lull in early July, the 31-year-old is back to hitting a robust .311/.428/.538 with 19 homers, 51 RBI and 55 runs scored overall. Yesterday, 8:17 pm
  • Abreu homers among three hits, White Sox roll
    Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the White Sox jumped on the Red Sox 9-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Abreu had three of the team's 14 hits on the evening, hitting a two-run homer in the sixth before adding an RBI double in the eighth. The homer was his 16th of the year, giving him 56 RBI. The three-hit night extended his modest hitting streak to eight games while raising his overall line to .296/.349/.489. Yesterday, 7:44 pm
  • Hosmer leads Royals past Indians for a win
    Eric Hosmer was responsible for both runs as the Royals edged the Indians on Tuesday, finishing 3-for-4.

    Advice: Hosmer broke a 0-0 tie in the fourth inning with an RBI single, then broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the ninth with a solo home run off of Trevor Bauer. He broke a 25-game homerless drought last week and now has three round-trippers in his last seven games. Hosmer has 11 home runs overall with 55 RBI and a .313/.372/.478 batting line. Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • Freeman homers early, Braves defeated by O's
    Freddie Freeman went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run on Tuesday as the Braves lost 7-3 to the Orioles.

    Advice: Freeman, playing in his fourth game since being activated from the disabled list, staked the Braves to a 2-0 lead when he drilled a two-run home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez in the first inning. He's now 2-for-14 since being activated, but still owns a terrific .291/.359/.511 batting line along with 13 home runs and 43 RBI. Yesterday, 7:17 pm
  • Davis has 2 HR, 5 RBI to down the Braves
    Chris Davis crushed a pair of home runs to drive in five runs, helping the Orioles take down the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: The O's fell behind 2-0 in the top of the first inning, but Davis quickly responded with a three-run home run in the bottom half. He added a two-run shot in the second, with both blasts coming against Julio Teheran -- his only hits in four at-bats on the night. Davis is swinging a hot stick as he's homered five times in his last seven games, giving him 24 on the season with 65 RBI and a .243/.325/.497 line. Yesterday, 7:09 pm

  • Bautista (hamstring) expects to play Wed.
    Jose Bautista (hamstring) said after Tuesday's game that he's just dealing with a cramp and expects to play Wednesday.

    Advice: Bautista had to be lifted after pulling up while running out a groundball. It remains to be seen whether the Blue Jays are as optimistic as the outfielder is, but it does appear he's avoided a serious injury. Yesterday, 7:00 pm
  • Duda homers as Mets shut out the Padres
    Lucas Duda went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Mets to a win on Tuesday against the Padres.

    Advice: Duda staked the Mets to an early 2-0 lead when he drilled a James Shields offering over the fence in center field. Given how masterful Noah Syndergaard was on the mound, it was the only offense the Mets would need. Duda has three home runs in his last three games, giving him 15 on the season with 42 RBI and a .236/.338/.433 batting line. Yesterday, 6:45 pm
  • Bautista exits with apparent hamstring injury
    Jose Bautista left Tuesday's game versus the Phillies with an apparent right hamstring injury.

    Advice: Bautista pulled up lame while running out a groundball. It looked like a potentially significant injury, but we'll have to wait and see what the Blue Jays say after the game. Yesterday, 6:19 pm
  • Justin Turner has infection on leg
    Justin Turner is not playing Tuesday due to a pimple on his leg that became infected, necessitating a visit to the emergency room after he had a reaction to medication.

    Advice: Well, that's... appetizing. The Dodgers expect to know more on Turner later Tuesday, but he should be available to play Wednesday. Alberto Callaspo is at the hot corner Tuesday. Yesterday, 4:21 pm

  • Max Muncy recalled from Triple-A
    Athletics recalled INF Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: He's taking Ben Zobrist's spot on the roster. Muncy has hit only .203/.273/.367 with the big club this season. Yesterday, 4:01 pm
  • Adam Lind (back) returns to Tuesday's lineup
    Adam Lind (back) is back in the Brewers' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Lind missed a couple games with lower back stiffness, but he was available off the bench Monday and is ready to roll now. The first baseman is a good bet to be traded this week. Yesterday, 3:27 pm
  • Justin Turner not in Dodgers' lineup Tuesday
    Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for Turner. Alberto Callaspo is starting at third base against the A's. Yesterday, 2:50 pm

  • Rockies option Wilin Rosario to Triple-A
    Rockies optioned 1B Wilin Rosario to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: The move comes with odd timing given that Rosario is rumored to be on the trade block. The 26-year-old is batting just .273/.293/.426 in 69 games this season, but he does have some power and would make sense as a part-time DH for an American League team. Yesterday, 1:52 pm

  • Wil Myers (wrist) shut down for 5-6 days
    Wil Myers (wrist) won't take swings for the next 5-6 days.

    Advice: But the good news is that his lingering wrist discomfort is just a part of some general soreness that is expected after any procedure. Myers underwent went wrist surgery in mid-June and is out indefinitely. He was supposed to be back in mid-August. Yesterday, 1:47 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm @NYM
  • Ryan Zimmerman (foot) returns from 15-day DL
    Nationals activated 1B Ryan Zimmerman from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Zimmerman missed over a month and a half with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He went 1-for-15 on his rehab assignment and is batting just .209/.265/.346 in 234 plate appearances this season for the Nationals. Yesterday, 1:38 pm
  • Angels recall Navarro from Triple-A
    Angels recalled INF/OF Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: As expected, Navarro will replace Matt Joyce (concussion) on the active roster. The 29-year-old is batting .260/.306/.312 in 82 plate appearances this season and will serve as a left-handed bat off the bench. Yesterday, 1:03 pm
  • Brock Holt (knee) out again Tuesday night
    Brock Holt (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Holt sat out Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a hyperextended knee and he apparently needs at least another day. Jemile Weeks will fill in at second base again on Tuesday while Alejandro De Aza will get a shot out of No. 2 spot in the order. Yesterday, 12:25 pm

  • Olson hits two more home runs
    Athletics prospect 1B Matt Olson went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and five RBI on Monday for Double-A Midland.

    Advice: He’s batting .237/.376/.417 with 12 home runs, 25 doubles, 52 RBI and a 103/76 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 96 games in the Texas League. Olson has been on a power surge of late, as he now has four home runs in his last five games after hitting seven over his previous 91 contests at Midland. After clubbing 37 long balls last season at High-A Stockton and tallying 23 in his full-season debut the previous year, Olson’s sharp drop-off in home runs this season has been a disappointment. However, the good news is he’s continued to take walks (76) and reach base at a high clip (.376) despite facing older and more advanced pitching at the Double-A level. Yesterday, 11:22 am

  • Navarro expected to be called up Tuesday
    The Angels are expected to call up Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's possible that he'll replace Matt Joyce, who could be headed to the 7-day concussion disabled list. Navarro, 29, has a .260/.306/.312 batting line in 82 plate appearances with the Angels this season. Yesterday, 10:43 am
  • Nats to activate Zimmerman (foot) on Tuesday
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) will be activated from the disabled list for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

    Advice: The Nationals got Anthony Rendon back over the weekend and they are now prepared to add Jayson Werth and Zimmerman back into the mix. Sidelined since early June with plantar fasciitis, Zimmerman went just 1-for-15 during his minor league rehab assignment, but the important thing is that the rest has done him good. Yesterday, 6:30 am
  • Goldschmidt homers, draws 3 walks in a win
    Paul Goldschmidt drew three walks and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Monday's 10-inning win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Goldschmidt put the Diamondbacks up 1-0 in the first inning when he drilled a solo home run to left field off of Mike Montgomery. The Mariners didn't seem to have any interest in pitching to him after that, and with good reason: the first baseman is batting an absurd .346/.465/.611 with 22 home runs, 75 RBI, and 17 stolen bases. Goldschmidt also leads the majors in walks by a large margin with 82, 10 more than the next-highest total (Bryce Harper, 72). Monday, 10:40 pm
  • Jake Elmore optioned to Triple-A
    Rays optioned INF Jake Elmore to Triple-A Durham.

  • Morales knocks in three runs, KC tops Tribe
    Kendrys Morales knocked in three runs in a 3-for-5 effort Monday as the Royals topped the Indians.

    Advice: Morales hit a two-run double in the fifth inning, pushing the Royals' lead to 7-1. He then tacked on an RBI single in the seventh. The RBIs were his first in a week, but he's registered back-to-back three-hit games. He owns a helpful .287/.343/.457 triple-slash line with 12 home runs and 68 RBI on the year. Monday, 7:19 pm
  • Hosmer homers, knocks in four to down Indians
    Eric Hosmer had a big night in a win against the Indians on Monday, finishing 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI.

    Advice: Hosmer put the Royals on the board with three-run home run off of Cody Anderson in the first inning. He added an RBI single in the fifth. The first baseman appears to be back in the swing of things after a summer swoon, as he's resuscitated his batting line back up to .308/.368/.467 with 10 home runs and 53 RBI. Monday, 7:14 pm
  • Adam Lind (back) expects to play Tuesday
    Adam Lind (back) said Monday that he's feeling better and expects to return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Lind is missing a second straight start because of a tight lower back. He thinks he could be available to pinch-hit, though, and is aiming to return to action Tuesday. Lind is a good bet to be traded this week, with the Cardinals being one club that's in on him. Monday, 5:21 pm
  • Adam LaRoche to get two days off
    Adam LaRoche won't return to the lineup until Wednesday.

    Advice: The White Sox are giving the slumping designated hitter two days off to regroup. LaRoche is down to .212/.306/.347 for the season and hasn't homered since June 24. "Rochey can kind of work it out in the cage and have a couple of days knowing he can go in there and work on some stuff," manager Robin Ventura said. "He's trying to figure it out. You continue to do that. He'll be back in there to play. But for two days, he's going to ease the mind and not be in there." Monday, 5:01 pm
  • Joaquin Arias designated for assignment
    Giants designated INF Joaquin Arias for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears space on the roster for the return of Nori Aoki. Arias has been with the Giants since 2012 but was hitting just .207/.207/.276 this season. He'll clear waivers given his $1.45 million salary and should remain in the organization. Monday, 4:29 pm

  • Adam Lind (back) held out again Monday
    Adam Lind (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Monday.

    Advice: He's sat out the last two contests after exiting Saturday's game with lower back tightness. It's not considered more than a day-to-day thing at the moment, but it's worth noting that Lind has a history of back issues. The first baseman is known to have received trade interest from the Cardinals, among other clubs, but they'd obviously like to see him healthy first. Shane Peterson is at first base Monday. Monday, 1:45 pm
  • Brock Holt (knee) expected back on Tuesday
    Brock Holt (knee) is expected to return to the Red Sox' lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: Holt is sitting out Monday after having to leave Sunday's contest when he hyperextended his left knee. He's ultimately expected to be fine, though. Jemile Weeks is handling second base Monday. Monday, 1:40 pm

    Adam LaRoche is not in the White Sox lineup Monday.

    Advice: Adam Eaton will DH and J.B. Shuck will start in center field against Red Sox right-hander Joe Kelly. It's just a day off for LaRoche, who typically starts against righties. He's batting just .212/.306/.347 in 356 total plate appearances this season for Chicago. Monday, 12:29 pm
  • Cards 'don't appear high' on O's Chris Davis
    According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Cardinals "don't appear to be high" on Chris Davis.

    Advice: St. Louis is known to be in search of an upgrade at first base, but the Cardinals' primary target seems to be the Brewers' Adam Lind. Crasnick says the Cards are "wary" of Davis' lofty strikeout totals, and it also probably helps that Lind carries a team-friendly option for 2016 whereas Davis is due to become a free agent.

  • Cardinals, Brewers have discussed Adam Lind
    Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have discussed a potential trade with the Brewers involving first baseman Adam Lind.

    Advice: St. Louis has needed a boost at first base ever since Matt Adams went down in late May with what's likely to be a season-ending quad injury. Mark Reynolds has struggled in a full-time role and the Cardinals aren't sure what to expect yet from rookie Stephen Piscotty. Lind, a left-handed hitter who's sitting on an .865 OPS, 16 home runs, and 58 RBI through 92 games, would be an absolutely perfect fit. The 32-year-old is making $7.5 million this season with a relatively-inexpensive $8 million club option for 2016. Monday, 6:06 am
  • Holt (knee) not expected to miss any time
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Sunday's game that he doesn't expect Brock Holt (knee) to miss any time.

    Advice: Holt was forced to leave Sunday's contest against the Tigers after hyperextending his left knee. It appears to be a minor issue though, so expect the All-Star to be in the lineup for Monday's series opener against the White Sox. Sunday, 9:21 pm

  • Plouffe knocks home run with single in ninth
    Trevor Plouffe went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Plouffe's RBI base knock off Yankees reliever Justin Wilson merely acted as cosmetic effect in the 7-2 loss. He's hitting .255/.315/.457 with 14 homers and 55 RBI and looks to be on his way to a 20+ homer season for the first time since 2012. Sunday, 2:24 pm

  • Myers (wrist) to be examined after setback
    Wil Myers will be examined after feeling discomfort in his ailing left wrist while swinging a bat on Saturday.

    Advice: The Padres are calling the examination precautionary, but obviously it's not a good sign. Myers was just cleared to resume swinging only a week ago after having surgery in mid-June to remove a bone spur in his left wrist. He had been expected back by mid-August, but we'll have to wait and see how big of a setback this is. Sunday, 11:11 am

  • Adam Lind (back) sitting out Sunday
    Adam Lind (back) is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Lind exited Saturday's game with lower back tightness and is considered day-to-day. Jonathan Lucroy is at first base, with Martin Maldonado behind the plate. Sunday, 9:53 am
  • Duda homers twice in beatdown rout of LAD
    Lucas Duda went 2-for-6 with a pair of solo home runs in Saturday's 15-2 demolition of the Dodgers.

    Advice: The Mets racked up 21 hits in the big win. Duda might have only had two of those, but both left the ballpark. He did his damage against the Dodgers bullpen, launching a solo shot in the sixth inning and another in the seventh. The two dingers gave him 14 on the year. He's also driven in 40 runs and is slashing .238/.340/.430. All of these numbers are down from a breakout 2014 campaign, though Duda has had his moments this season. Saturday, 7:59 pm
  • Abreu notches three RBI in win over Indians
    Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Saturday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Abreu did his damage with a pair of RBI singles, the first a two-RBI base knock off Indians starter Carlos Carrasco in the first inning. He would notch the other single in the ninth inning, pushing the score to 9-3. Abreu's hitting .289/.339/.473 with 15 homers and 52 RBI this season. He's not going to match the 36 homers he hit last season unless he goes on an epic power surge, but it's been a nice sophomore campaign even without quite as many pyrotechnics. Saturday, 7:13 pm
  • Lind removed from game with tight lower back
    Adam Lind left Saturday's game in the second inning after experiencing lower back tightness.

    Advice: With trade rumors swirling around Lind, the flareup comes with pretty awful timing. Shane Peterson took over at first base and may have to start there on Sunday. Lind struck out in his only at-bat Saturday against Diamondbacks right-hander Rubby De La Rosa. Saturday, 6:43 pm
  • Davis crushes grand slam in O's win
    Chris Davis launched a grand slam in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Davis unloaded on an Erasmo Ramirez offering with one out and the bases juiced in the third inning to give the Orioles a 4-0 lead. It was his 22nd homer of the season and pushed his RBI total to an even 60 on the year. The slugger has been in the zone of late, with three homers and two doubles in his last four games. That, on top of an ongoing eight-game hitting streak. He's currently hitting .242/.321/.487. On Friday, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reported that the Orioles were considering selling off some pieces at the trade deadline. Davis is one of those potential pieces, and with his recent hot stretch, he should draw interest as a rental from multiple teams if the team does, indeed, try to move him. Saturday, 5:44 pm

    Braves activated 1B Freddie Freeman from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Freeman has been sidelined since June 18 due to a bone bruise in his wrist, but the club apparently feels that he's ready to return without a lengthy minor league rehab assignment. Before hitting the DL, the 25-year-old slugger was hitting .299/.367/.520 with 12 homers and 41 RBI in 66 games. Saturday, 12:14 pm
  • Jose Bautista hits 21st homer
    Jose Bautista hit his 21st homer of the year Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: It was his 224th homer as a Blue Jay, moving him past Vernon Wells into second place on the franchise's all-time list. He's still 112 homers behind Carlos Delgado for first place. Friday, 10:32 pm
  • Votto has three hits, HR vs. Rockies
    Joey Votto went 3-for-5 with a solo homer Friday against the Rockies.

    Advice: He took John Axford deep with one out in the ninth inning to tie the ballgame, but the Rockies went on to win on a wild pitch in the next half-inning. Votto has been red-hot in recent days, hitting .593 (16-for-27) over his last seven games. He has improved his batting average from .277 to .302 during that time. Friday, 9:42 pm
  • Plouffe has three hits, homer vs. Yanks
    Trevor Plouffe went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Friday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Plouffe has gone deep in back-to-back games and now has four home runs in his last eight contests. He's batting .259 with 14 home runs and a .785 OPS on the year. He has a real chance at a 20-plus homer, 90-RBI season. Friday, 8:34 pm

  • Turner homers, knocks in two runs vs. Mets
    Justin Turner went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Mets.

    Advice: Turner had three extra-base hits on the night against his former team, including an RBI double in the first inning and a solo homer in the third. The 30-year-old has hit safely in six straight games and continues to have a fantastic year. He's batting .327 with 13 home runs and a .958 OPS. Friday, 7:04 pm

  • O's giving 'serious consideration' to selling
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Orioles are giving "serious consideration" to becoming sellers at the trade deadline.

    Advice: The reigning American League East champs have been disappointing so far in 2015, posting a 46-48 record. They sit just 4.5 games out of a Wild Card spot, though, so it would be a bit of a surprise to see them sell. If they would make such a decision, impending free agents like Chris Davis, Matt Wieters and Wei-Yin Chen could be on the move. Friday, 10:03 am

  • Davis homers in second consecutive game
    Chris Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Davis crushed a Masahiro Tanaka offering in the second inning, his 21st homer of the season. The solo bomb gave him 55 RBI for the year. He's rapidly closing in on his 2014 home run total, as he hit 26 long balls a season ago. After slashing just .196/.300/.404 in 2014, he's hitting .238/.317/.473 this year. It's been a nice bounce-back campaign for the slugger, who is too often judged against a monster 2013 campaign that, realistically, was never going to be repeated. Thursday, 1:03 pm

  • Goldschmidt collects a pair of hits in loss
    Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a walk, double and run scored in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Goldschmidt continues to torment pitchers amidst another lost season for Arizona. He's now slashing a ridiculous .343/.456/.603. The All-Star first baseman has become a five-category fantasy monster. He's on pace for 37 homers, 125 RBI, 106 runs and 30 steals. Wednesday, 10:04 pm
  • Hosmer hits first homer since June 19 vs. PIT
    Eric Hosmer hit his first home run since June 19, helping the Royals take down the Pirates on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hosmer finished 2-for-3 on the night. He tied the game up at one apiece in the fourth inning, drilling a solo home run to right field off of Charlie Morton. He's started to heat up over the last two weeks, bringing his triple-slash line back to .301/.361/.452 with nine home runs and 49 RBI. Wednesday, 7:55 pm
  • Davis homers, but Orioles fall to the Yankees
    Chris Davis finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Orioles came up short versus the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Advice: Davis halved the Orioles' deficit when he took Andrew Miller yard in the ninth inning, but the club otherwise wasn't able to do much. He hasn't been able to recapture the production that resulted in his third-place finish in AL MVP balloting in 2013, but he's still hitting a productive .238/.318/.466 with 20 home runs and 54 RBI. Wednesday, 6:51 pm

  • Lind homers, drives in four in loss to Tribe
    Adam Lind went off in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Indians, finishing the contest 4-for-5 with a two-run homer and four total RBI.

    Advice: Lind took Indians starter Cody Anderson to task in the first inning when he launched a two-run homer off the rookie. He added an RBI single in the second and an RBI double in the ninth, ultimately driving in four of the five runs scored by the Brewers on the day. The long-time Blue Jay is posting a quietly fantastic season and is slashing .293/.374/.515 with 16 homers and 58 RBI over 307 at-bats. Wednesday, 2:48 pm
  • Cervelli (wrist) out again Wednesday vs. KC
    Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is out of the Pirates' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Cervelli had a knot on his arm Tuesday after getting hit by a pitch on Monday night. He should be fine in a day or two. Chris Stewart will start behind the plate as the Royals wrap up a big three-game series in Kansas City. Wednesday, 1:34 pm
  • Votto smacks solo homer in win over Cubs
    Joey Votto went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in Wednesday afternoon's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Votto took Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks deep for a solo home run in the fifth inning. The dinger was his 17th of the year. The veteran slugger struggled heading into the All-Star Break, but his bat has shown signs of life recently and he's recorded multiple hits in four of his last five games. Overall, he sports a .293/.406/.509 batting line with 17 homers, 45 RBI and 49 runs scored. Wednesday, 12:52 pm
  • Bautista homers in 3rd consecutive game
    Jose Bautista homered in his third consecutive game, aiding in Tuesday's 7-1 win against the Athletics.

    Advice: Bautista finished 1-for-5. He socked his 20th homer of the year in the sixth inning against Kendall Graveman, pushing the Jays' lead to 3-0 at the time. The All-Star was hampered in the first half by a shoulder injury, but used the break to receive treatment and it seems to have done the trick thus far. Along with the 20 dingers, Bautista has knocked in 64 and hit .240/.379/.510. Tuesday, 9:57 pm
  • Carter hits 16th homer in win over Red Sox
    Chris Carter went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Carter hit a two-run blast off Justin Masterson in the sixth inning, giving him 16 home runs on the year. The two hits matched his total for the month coming into the game, as Carter has been mired in an ugly stretch that has his line down to .190/.305/.393. The power is still there, obviously, and Carter is ferocious when hot, so perhaps Tuesday will be the start of something good. Tuesday, 9:32 pm
  • Turner belts 12th home run in loss to Braves
    Justin Turner hit his 12th home run of the season in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: A night after going 4-for-4 with three singles, Turner connected on a solo shot against Braves starter Alex Wood in Tuesday's contest. It ended up being his only hit on the night. The infielder continues to enjoy a breakout year in Los Angeles, as he's now hitting .322 with a .940 OPS and a career-high 12 homers. Tuesday, 7:48 pm

    Chris Carter (ankle) returned to the Astros' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: It's Carter's first start since he sprained his right ankle last Friday. He's being used in the designated hitter spot Tuesday, with Marwin Gonzalez covering first base. Tuesday, 7:00 pm
  • Cervelli (wrist) out of Pirates' lineup Tues.
    Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is out of the Pirates' lineup on Tuesday night against the Royals.

    Advice: Cervelli suffered some minor swelling in his right wrist Monday when he got hit by a pitch. He'll be available on Tuesday, but only in an emergency. Chris Stewart is starting at catcher for the Bucs at Kauffman Stadium. Tuesday, 2:44 pm
  • Freeman (wrist) nearing a rehab assignment
    Freddie Freeman (wrist) is expected to travel to Florida on Wednesday for 2-3 more days of working out.

    Advice: If that all goes well, he should then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment. David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution suspects that Freeman, who has been out since June 18 with a bone bruise in his wrist, could return to the Braves' active roster late next week in Philadelphia. Tuesday, 1:27 pm
  • Morales swats three-run homer but Royals lose
    Kendrys Morales swatted a two-run home run in a 1-for-5 effort as the Royals lost to the Pirates on Monday.

    Advice: Morales drilled a two-run home run to right field off of A.J. Burnett in the fifth inning, cutting the Royals' deficit to 7-4. He added an RBI on a ground out in the seventh. Morales is on a seven-game hitting streak, raising his batting line to .280/.339/.454 with 12 home runs and 65 RBI. Monday, 8:47 pm
  • Francisco Cervelli leaves with sore wrist
    Francisco Cervelli left Monday's game versus the Royals with right wrist discomfort.

    Advice: Cervelli was hit by a pitch in the wrist and it eventually became too sore, forcing him from the game in the bottom of the seventh. It appears at this point that it's a day-to-day situation. Monday, 7:57 pm
  • Francisco Cervelli exits with apparent injury
    Francisco Cervelli left Monday's game against the Royals with an apparent injury.

    Advice: It's unclear what happened with Cervelli, but he was visited by the Pirates' trainer in the bottom of the seventh and then walked off the field. The club should have an update on him shortly. Monday, 7:43 pm
  • Turner's four-hit night goes to waste in loss
    Justin Turner had four hits in as many at-bats, but the Dodgers fell to the Braves on Monday.

    Advice: Turner's four hits, three of which were singles, accounted for nothing as he neither scored a run nor brought one in. The 30-year-old has showed no signs of slowing down as he's hitting an outstanding .323/.389/.545 with 11 home runs and 40 RBI. Monday, 7:40 pm

  • Lucas Duda sitting out on Monday
    Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Monday.

    Advice: He's getting a breather after Sunday's 18-inning marathon with the Cardinals. Eric Campbell is at first base in Duda's place. Monday, 1:40 pm
  • Freeman (wrist) close to rehab assignment
    Freddie Freeman (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment in the next day or two.

    Advice: A recent MRI showed that Freeman still has fluid in his ailing right wrist, but the first baseman hit off a tee and took soft-toss Monday with no issues. He'll surely need to take regular batting practice before being cleared for game action, but it sounds like that should happen soon. A return before the end of the month looks possible. Monday, 1:34 pm
  • Chris Carter feeling better, not running yet
    Chris Carter (ankle) indicated Sunday that he's feeling much better, but he won't start running again until Tuesday.

    Advice: Carter suffered a sprained right ankle in Friday's game and has yet to return to the lineup. While he could give it a go on Tuesday, expect to see Jonathan Singleton at first base for the Astros for at least one more game. Jul 19, 7:19 pm
  • Zimmerman goes 1-for-2 in first rehab game
    Ryan Zimmerman went 1-for-2 and played three innings defensively at first base in his first minor league rehab game at Double-A Harrisburg on Sunday.

    Advice: Zimmerman has been sidelined since early June due to plantar fasciitis. He isn't expected to need many rehab games before he's ready to rejoin the Nationals, and could be cleared to do so at some point next week. Jul 19, 1:54 pm
  • Bautista homers again as Jays down Rays
    Jose Bautista singled and launched a two-run homer in Sunday's victory over the Rays.

    Advice: Chris Colabello put the Blue Jays on the board with a two-run blast in the fifth and Bautista provided some cushion with his longball in the eighth. It was Bautista's second straight game going deep, and he now has 19 home runs and 63 RBI on the season. It appears the treatment he underwent on his shoulder over the All-Star break worked. Jul 19, 12:43 pm
  • MRI shows fluid remains in Freeman's wrist
    An MRI showed that fluid still remains in Freddie Freeman's right wrist.

    Advice: Freeman was still able to take 30 dry swings on Sunday with 50-75 percent intensity, but obviously he's not going to be able to begin a rehab assignment on Sunday or Monday as previously hoped. He'll be re-evaluated later Sunday and there could be more know about a potential timetable for Freeman at that time. Jul 19, 12:01 pm
  • Chris Carter (ankle) out again Sunday
    Chris Carter (ankle) remained out of the Astros' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Carter tweaked his right ankle on Friday. He's expected to avoid the disabled list but could need a little more time. Jon Singleton is handling first base again. Jul 19, 9:12 am
  • Zimmerman (foot) set for rehab assignment
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Sunday.

    Advice: Zimmerman was able to run the bases without any issues on Friday, clearing the way for his return to game action. The plantar fasciitis in his left foot is going to be an issue for the rest of the season, but he'll do his best to play through it. Zimmerman shouldn't need too many rehab games before being activated. Jul 19, 8:03 am
