  • D.J. LeMahieu goes 3-for-4
    D.J. LeMahieu broke out of a slump with a 3-for-4 game Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: LeMahieu hadn't had a multihit game since June 11, even though he's been batting second and usually getting five plate appearances per game. His average, which stood at .351 on June 11, entered tonight at .293, but it's back up to .300 now. He's not a bad option in mixed leagues for as long as he bats second, but he'll probably end up back at the bottom of the order at some point. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores singles three times in loss to Dodgers
    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Flores knocked in a run with a single in the eighth inning. He's been absolutely sizzling this holiday weekend, with seven hits in his last 11 at-bats and back-to-back three-hit games. His recent hot stretch is not indicative of how he's been hitting all season, as he's slashing .248/.280/.398 with 10 homers and 35 RBI. The power and run-production are swell enough, but the average could use some work. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon swipes 29th bag in loss to Cubs
    Dee Gordon went 1-for-4 with two runs scored and his 29th stolen base of the season in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Gordon scored both of the Marlins' runs in the game. He's touched home plate 43 times this season and is slashing an impressive .344/.364/.423 with 29 steals. He swiped 64 bags for the Dodgers a year ago, a number that he's certainly capable of challenging with his new team. Rotoworld.com

  • Delino Deshields close to returning from DL
    Delino Deshields (hamstring) will be reevaluated after Saturday's workout.

    Advice: Deshields recently wrapped up a six-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock and is close to 100 percent. He should be activated from the disabled list in the next day or two. Texas has a crowded outfield now with Josh Hamilton, Leonys Martin and Shin-Soo Choo all seeing regular at-bats. Deshields had 13 steals in 48 games before his injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Flaherty optioned, could be back Monday
    Orioles optioned 2B Ryan Flaherty.

    Advice: The Orioles needed to make room for Jonathan Schoop. Flaherty could return to the roster as soon as Monday. That's when the O's are expected to place Nolan Reimold on the paternity list. Usually when someone gets sent down they have to stay in the minors for a minimum of 10 days, but that doesn't apply to players on paternity leave. Rotoworld.com

    Orioles activated Jonathan Schoop (knee) from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: He rejoined the Orioles in Chicago Saturday after completing a 10-game rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie and High-A Frederick. The 23-year-old hit .259 in nine games before a sprained PCL sent him to the disabled list in mid-April. Ryan Flaherty was optioned in the corresponding roster move. Rotoworld.com

  • Yangervis Solarte goes deep on Saturday
    Yangervis Solarte belted his fourth home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: His solo blast off Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez in the fourth inning wound up being the extent of the Padres offense in the contest. He finished the day 1-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.298/.378 with four homers and 30 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Valbuena has RBI single Saturday vs. Red Sox
    Luis Valbuena went 2-for-4 with RBI single Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: His RBI single in the ninth was the Astros' only offense of the day against Clay Buchholz. Through three months, Valbuena has had one of the strangest seasons to date. While he has 19 home runs and 36 RBI on the year, he's batting just .201 with a .281 on-base percentage. He could be pushed into a part-time role when Jed Lowrie is ready to come off the disabled list. Rotoworld.com

  • Cliff Pennington comes up big as Arizona wins
    Cliff Pennington delivered a game-tying single in the sixth and a game-ending sac fly in the 10th as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 4-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Pennington remains a fine utilityman, but the Diamondbacks haven't gotten a ton of use from him this year with Nick Ahmed playing well at short and Aaron Hill acting as the primary fallback at second and third. The runs batted in he collected tonight were just his sixth and seventh of the season, and it was also only his second multihit game. Rotoworld.com

  • Wilmer Flores goes 3-for-4 in Mets' win
    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with an RBI as the Mets beat the Dodgers 2-1 on Friday.

    Advice: Flores singled in the Mets' first run in the fourth and collected an infield single during the ninth-inning rally that decided the game. The three hits match his total from his previous six starts combined. He does have 10 homers this season, but getting on base just hasn't been a strength for him. Rotoworld.com

  • Gyorko's big day propels Padres over Cards
    Jedd Gyorko hit a game-tying homer in the seventh inning and a go-ahead RBI single in the ninth to help lead the Padres to a 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: Gyorko was just called up on June 30 to help fill in for the injured Cory Spangenberg (knee). He showed his worth on Friday when he homered off of the ever-dominant Michael Wacha in the seventh inning to tie the game at 1-1. He then helped ensure things wouldn't move to extras when he singled home Yangervis Solarte in the ninth inning to put the Padres up 2-1. Gyorko hit .283/.368/.500 with four home runs in 15 games for Triple-A El Paso after being sent down in early June and should see his share of playing time in the near future, though there's little to love on the fantasy front here.

  • Solarte triples in win over Cardinals
    Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Friday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Don't expect to see Solarte legging out triples on a regular basis. The three-bagger was his first of the season and just the second of his career. He's hitting .249/.299/.367 with three homers and 29 RBI for the 2015 campaign and shouldn't be relied upon in fantasy formats, despite the newfound existence of wheels on those feet. Rotoworld.com

  • Brad Miller delivers eighth homer
    Brad Miller collected his eighth homer and his 12th double Friday against the A's.

    Advice: It's Miller's second homer in four games. His struggles in limited action against left-handers have taken a toll on his numbers, but he's hitting .267/.357/.487 versus righties. Rotoworld.com

  • Wong struggles in 0-for-4 game
    Kolten Wong couldn't find any traction against the Padres on Friday, finishing the game 0-for-4.

    Advice: Wong struggled on Friday, but it's not indicative of what he's done on the whole this season. His triple-slash of .283/.341/.451 stands in the upper tier of his position offensively and he's hit nine homers while driving in 36 runs and scoring 42. At just 24 years of age, there's still room for offensive improvement here. Rotoworld.com

  • Dozier fails to find hit in five at-bats
    Brian Dozier went 0-for-5 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Ouchie. Rough game aside, Dozier is putting in a fine season and is currently slashing .260/.331/.514 with 16 homers, 40 RBI and seven steals. His combination of speed and power make him one of the best fantasy chips at his position. Rotoworld.com

  • Altuve collects three hits to lead hit parade
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Friday's 12-8, 10-inning win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Altuve's RBI single in the seventh inning scored two runs and gave the diminutive second baseman 35 batted in for the season. He's now put up back-to-back three-hit games and is working with a .303/.348/.424 slash-line for the year. With 90 hits through 74 games, Altuve is a near-lock to finish with 200+ hits as long as he stays healthy. Rotoworld.com

    Cesar Hernandez went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Hernandez's RBI single off Julio Teheran in the fourth inning would score the only run that the Phillies managed in the game. While his power is almost non-existent, he should continue to see at-bats as long as he's able to keep up the average portion of his .285/.374/.376 slash-line. Rotoworld.com

  • Mets reportedly willing to overpay on Zobrist
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets are willing to overpay to acquire Ben Zobrist from the Athletics.

    Advice: With the A's winning 12 of their last 18 games, there is hope within the organization that they could still make a run for the postseason, so at least for now Zobrist has been pulled off the trade block. That being said, you never want to give away leverage in a negotiating situation and now that the word is out A's general manager Billy Beane is likely to demand a king's ransom from the Mets in exchange for Zobrist.

  • Athletics not sellers at this point
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Athletics have "backed away from selling after winning more games recently."

    Advice: The A's have gone 12-6 over their last 18 games to pull within 6.5 games of a Wild Card spot. It's still quite a bit of ground to make up, but it's no surprise that they appear to want to ride things out for a while longer before making a decision on which direction to go. Heyman confirms a previous report that the Mets are one of many clubs in on Ben Zobrist. The Nationals, Cubs and Yankees have also been connected to the versatile Zobrist. Rotoworld.com

  • Brad Miller to remain M's starting shortstop
    Despite the return of Chris Taylor, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon clarified Thursday that Brad Miller will remain the team's starting shortstop.

It sounds like it's a vote of confidence from the skipper, but if Taylor continues to mash the baseball he'll find his way into more playing time soon enough. Rotoworld.com

    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with a HBP, an RBI and two runs scored in the Astros' 6-5 defeat of the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Altuve also swiped a pair of bases. He's hit in 10 straight games to push his average back up to .298. That doesn't quite measure up to last year, but though three months, he's given his fantasy owners exactly what they paid for. Rotoworld.com

    Brad Miller launched a two-run home run in a 2-for-4 effort as the Mariners shut the Padres out 5-0 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller took Ian Kennedy out to right-center in the fourth inning for a two-run homer, making it a 4-0 Mariners lead at the time. It's his seventh homer of the season. He looks certain to surpass his career high of 10 set last season. He's also knocked in 22 runs while batting a passable .237/.316/.404. Rotoworld.com

  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon hits inside-the-park homer, Fish win
    Dee Gordon hit a three-run, inside-the-park home run to help the Marlins best the Giants 5-3 on Tuesday.

    Advice: With two on in the second inning, Gordon lifted a ball to the right-center gap that rolled. Right fielder Gregor Blanco's misplay allowed the speedy Gordon to race around and score on the hit. Gordon finished with just the one hit in five at-bats. Through Tuesday's game, Gordon is hitting .351/.370/.429 with the one home run, 40 runs scored and 26 stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Hernandez to get a chance to stick at 2B?
    Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said Tuesday that he "would like to think that Cesar (Hernandez) has proven that he deserves a chance to be the everyday second baseman."

    Advice: Hernandez, 25, entered Tuesday batting .277/.365/.365 on the season and .328/.394/.406 in June. Chase Utley, meanwhile, is on the disabled list with an ankle injury and sports an ugly .179/.257/.275 line this season. It's hard to believe the Phils would bench Utley even given his struggles, and Mackanin did note that he didn't "want to get ahead of myself." However, if Hernandez keeps performing, it's possible. Notable is that the Phillies have a $15 million club option for 2016 on Utley that automatically vests if he reaches 500 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Hernandez stays hot with 2 more hits in loss
    Cesar Hernandez's bat continued to stay hot as he went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run, and a stolen base in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Fresh off a four-hit performance on Sunday, Hernandez logged his fifth multi-hit performance in seven games on Monday. He knocked in the Phillies' first run in the first inning with an infield single and later came around to score on a balk. Hernandez is batting .277/.365/.365 with 25 runs scored, 16 RBI, and seven stolen bases and is now getting regular at-bats while Chase Utley is sidelined. It's not known yet when Utley returns, so those in daily leagues might find utility in Hernandez as a cheap source of stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

    Cesar Hernandez singled four times in as many at-bats, helping the Phillies in a win over the Nationals in the back end of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Advice: It's the second four-hit game of Hernandez's career, with the other occuring on September 28, 2013. The Phillies, despite scoring eight runs, only brought him home once, at the end of their four-run second inning. Hernandez has been hitting well as of late, logging multi-hit efforts in three of his last five games. With Chase Utley on the shelf, he should be a regular in the lineup.

    Jimmy Paredes went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Paredes reached base all four times he came to the plate, walking in his other two plate appearances.

  • Turner hits 11th home run against Marlins
    Justin Turner hit his 11th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

    Advice: Turner took Marlins starter Tom Koehler deep in the first inning to give the Dodgers an early lead. He finished 2-for-4 with a single to go along with the homer. It has been a legitimate breakout year for the 30-year-old, who is hitting .320/.392/.584 with 36 RBI and 30 runs scored in 66 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Dozier hits 15th home run
    Brian Dozier went 3-for-4 with a leadoff home run in Friday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: His leadoff blast against Kyle Lohse gave the Twins an early lead, but the Brewers pounded out six runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back. Dozier is already up to 15 home runs through 71 games, so he has a really good chance to surpass his career-high of 23 from last season. Rotoworld.com

  • Forsythe stays hot against Red Sox
    Logan Forsythe was 3-for-5 with a run scored against the Red Sox on Friday.

    Advice: Forsythe cooled off significantly earlier this month, but he's hitting .476 (20-for-42) over his last 11 games. With a .298/.378/.453 batting line to go along with eight home runs, 32 RBI, and seven steals, he's been a nice surprise for the Rays and fantasy owners alike. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon has three hits in loss to Dodgers
    Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Friday.

    Advice: Facing his former team, Gordon had half of the Marlins' hits on the night. The 27-year-old speedster has hit safely in nine straight games and currently leads the majors with a .356 batting average. Meanwhile, he's second in the majors with 26 steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Jonathan Schoop (knee) nearing activation
    Jonathan Schoop (knee) could be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

    Advice: That's only if Adam Jones (shoulder) has to go on the DL. If Jones doesn't, Schoop is likely to return Monday. Working his way back from a PCL tear in his left knee, Schoop is batting .273/.304/.773 over six rehab games and will play in a seventh game Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Altuve goes 3-for-4 in win
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-4 with, two doubles, three runs scored and two steals as the Astros' No. 3 hitter on Thursday.

    Advice: The Astros liked Carlos Correa's work in the two hole while Jose Altuve missed time last week with a hamstring injury, so Altuve has been hitting third since returning Monday. It doesn't hurt his fantasy value at all. Rotoworld.com

  • Kolten Wong knocks in two runs in win
    Kolten Wong went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk Thursday in the win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Wong was having a rough June until yesterday, but now he's 4-for-8 with a homer the last two days. It doesn't look like he'll be vacating the leadoff spot anytime soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Mets, A's have discussed Ben Zobrist trade
    According to John Harper of the New York Daily News, the Mets and A's have discussed a Ben Zobrist trade.

    Advice: Harper cites sources "on both sides" of the talks, though he adds that there's no indication a deal is close. Zobrist is a fit for just about every contending team because of his defensive versatility. The Nationals, who now lead the floundering Mets by 3 1/2 games in the National League East, are also known to have interest in the 34-year-old Zobrist. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Petit has batted just .200/.256/.286 with 13 strikeouts in 35 at-bats this season with the Yankees. The 30-year-old utility infielder is not a fantasy-relevant player. Rotoworld.com

  • Justin Turner hits three-run homer
    Justin Turner hit a three-run homer Wednesday in the Dodgers' 5-2 victory over the Cubs.

    Advice: Turner got just 33 at-bats in April and has started a mere 41 out of 73 games overall, but he's going to have to be a 2015 All-Star with the way he's performed. He's batting .323 with 10 homers in 167 at-bats. Since joining the Dodgers last year, he's hit .334 with 17 homers and 78 RBI in 455 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Mets discussing moving Flores to 2B
    Sources tell Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News that the Mets are discussing moving Wilmer Flores to second base.

    Advice: The move would shore up the keystone, where Dilson Herrera has looked largely overmatched at the plate, while also getting Ruben Tejada's bat in the lineup on a regular basis. In that scenario, Daniel Murphy -- close to returning from a strained left quad -- would play third base and possibly first at times. If and when David Wright returns, the Mets would have a decision to make. Flores is hitting .243/.277/.406 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Wong homers as Cardinals defeat the Marlins
    Kolten Wong went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Cardinals take down the Marlins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wong slugged a two-run home run to right field in the third inning against Mat Latos, giving the Cardinals a 2-1 lead. It's his second home run in his last four starts, now with nine on the year along with 32 RBI, six stolen bases, and a .282/.337/.454 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: DeShields said he hopes to be able to start a rehab assignment next week. DeShields has been on the disabled list since June 15 with a strained left hamstring, but it sounds as though he shouldn't need much more than the minimum 15 days. Rotoworld.com

  • Luis Valbuena homers twice against Angels
    Luis Valbuena hit his 18th and 19th homers Tuesday against the Angels.

    Advice: Valbuena might be having the most bizarre season of anyone in the league, what with his .195 average and a homer total that ranks second in the AL. He has just 47 hits, a full 40 percent of which were homers. He showed nice pop last year, too, but that resulted in 16 homers in 478 at-bats with the Cubs. His 19 homers this year have come in 240 at-bats. We doubt he'll keep hitting homers at this rate, but then, we would have said that a month ago, too. Rotoworld.com
