  • Brett Lawrie not in Athletics lineup Saturday
    Brett Lawrie is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Max Muncy is getting the call at the hot corner and batting fifth in the A's lineup against opposing right-hander Nathan Karns. Lawrie should be back in there for Sunday's series finale. The 25-year-old is hitting .279/.310/.364 with two homers and 16 RBI in 43 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Duffy hits second homer
    Matt Duffy hit his second homer as part of a 3-for-5 night against the Rockies on Friday.

    Advice: Duffy has established himself as the Giants' best option at third base, for better or worse. He's not going to be much of an asset offensively, but he's certainly outplayed Casey McGehee to date. Rotoworld.com

  • Carpenter has three hits in loss to Royals
    Matt Carpenter went 3-for-4 with a walk Friday against the Royals.

    Advice: Carpenter had two singles and a double. The 29-year-old had 19 two-hit games this season coming into Friday's action, but this was his first three-hit game of the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Machado knocks in three runs vs. Marlins
    Manny Machado drove in three runs in Friday's 8-5 win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Machado went 2-for-5 on the night and knocked in runs with a ground out in the fifth and a two-run double in the eighth. The 22-year-old has shown good patience out of the leadoff spot for the Orioles and owns a solid .285/.346/.472 batting line with six home runs, 19 RBI, seven stolen bases, and 23 runs scored over 39 games. He has all the ingredients of a fantasy stud. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Longoria smacks three-run homer vs. A's
    Evan Longoria went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer, a walk, and his first stolen base of the season Friday against the Athletics.

    Advice: Longoria has now hit safely in nine out of his last 10 games, but his batting average has actually gone down from .283 to .282 during that time. He currently has five home runs, which puts him on pace for his worst power season since his injury-plagued season in 2012. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:29 pm
  • Frazier has RBI double vs. Indians
    Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored Friday against the Indians.

    Advice: Frazier hasn't homered since May 13, but he's hitting .360 (9-for-25) over his last seven games. With a .258/.351/.556 batting line to go along with 12 home runs, 24 RBI, and six stolen bases, the 29-year-old has been a force at the third base position for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Kang has RBI, SB in win over Mets
    Jung Ho Kang had an RBI single and a stolen base against the Mets on Friday.

    Advice: Kang has hit safely in five straight games and owns a .310/.372/.440 batting line with two home runs, 11 RBI, and three stolen bases through 29 games. He has pushed the struggling Jordy Mercer to the bench in recent days and deserves to be owned in more fantasy leagues right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Campbell 0-for-2 in loss to Pirates
    Eric Campbell went 0-for-2 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Campbell hit safely in each of his first three games after returning from the minors, but he's 0-for-14 over his past four games. David Wright (hamstring) is likely at least a week away from returning, but Mets manager Terry Collins should at least consider keeping Campbell near the bottom of the order until he does. Rotoworld.com

  • David Wright to begin rehab games next week
    David Wright (hamstring, back) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment at some point next week.

    Advice: Wright began taking batting practice on Friday and continues to make progress in his recovery from a right hamstring strain and a back injury that he suffered during rehab. Barring any further setbacks, he should rejoin the Mets in early June. Rotoworld.com

  • Pablo Sandoval (knee) out again on Friday
    Pablo Sandoval (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Sandoval remains available to pinch hit, but his left knee remains too sore when making throws. He hopes to return to the lineup at some point this weekend. Brock Holt is at third base Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Donaldson sitting out on Friday
    Josh Donaldson is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Friday.

    Advice: It appears to simply be a routine day of rest. Danny Valencia is handling third base with Donaldson out. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Semien getting a breather Friday
    Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

    Advice: New A's coach Ron Washington is putting Semien through drills prior to Friday's game as he seeks to improve the youngster's defense, so it's no surprise he's not in the lineup. Andy Parrino is handling shortstop. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays add Munenorl Kawasaki from Triple-A
    Blue Jays purchased the contract of INF Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The 33-year-old infielder will provide infield depth while Devon Travis is on the shelf with a shoulder injury. Through 22 games at Triple-A Buffalo, Kawasaki was hitting .232/.354/.290 with two RBI and four stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryant extends hit streak to 10, corks a HR
    Kris Bryant went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's victory over the Padres.

    Advice: His first inning bomb off Odrisamer Despaigne quickly gave the Cubs a lead they'd never relinquish. Bryant is riding a 10-game hitting streak. Though the power was slow to come in his first few weeks in the bigs, the rookie has corked four round-trippers during that 10-game streak. He's slashing .289/.411/.482 and just now looks to have gotten his feet under him at the sport's highest level. Bombs away. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:40 pm
  • Mike Aviles goes 4-for-5, homers
    Mike Aviles went 4-for-5 and homered against the White Sox in Thursday's win.

    Advice: Aviles is batting a cool .323 with three homers in 65 at-bats while primarily being used against lefties. It'd be nice if he were better at shortstop and more of an option over Jose Ramirez there, but as a platoon partner for Lonnie Chisenhall at third base, he's getting the job done. Rotoworld.com

  • Brock Holt goes 0-for-3 against Rangers
    Brock Holt went 0-for-3 with a walk and struck out looking to end the game Thursday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Holt's great start seems like a distance memory now; he's hitting .149 with one RBI in 47 at-bats since April 27. The Red Sox are playing him less with Shane Victorino (kind of) back, but he has started the last two days with Pablo Sandoval banged up. Rotoworld.com

    Thursday, 7:04 pm
  • David Freese homers, knocks in three
    David Freese had a two-run homer and an RBI double against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

    Advice: Freese had been 0-for-6 against R.A. Dickey and his knuckleball in his career, but he got a hold of a couple tonight. He's hit three homers in six games, and he's up to eight for the season. Less impressive are his .233 average and 37/9 K/BB ratio in 150 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Santana (back) returns to Indians' lineup
    Carlos Santana (back) is in the Indians' starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

  • Mets unsure on Wright (hammy) return
    The Mets aren't sure when David Wright (hamstring, back) will be ready to play minor league rehab games.

    Advice: Wright began to ramp up some baseball activities this week and is said to be "making progress," but the Mets aren't going to rush him. The veteran third baseman hit the disabled list on April 15 due to a right hamstring strain and his return has been delayed due to a back injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Seager ejected from Thursday's game
    Kyle Seager was ejected from Thursday's game against the Orioles in the fifth inning.

    Advice: Seager struck out looking in the top of the fifth inning and apparently didn't like the call, as he was tossed by home plate umpire John Tumpane. He went 2-for-3 with a run scored before exiting. Willie Bloomquist took over at third base. Rotoworld.com

  • Johnson (hand) on track to return next Thu.
    Chris Johnson (hand) is on track to be activated from the disabled list next Thursday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It was previously believed that he could be activated next Monday, but the Braves want him to play some rehab games first. The 30-year-old has been sidelined for three weeks with a fracture and bone bruises in his left hand. Rotoworld.com

  • Tomas strokes run-scoring double in first
    Yasmani Tomas went 2-for-5 with an RBI double in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: The double was Tomas' fifth of the season and the RBI his 12th. He was batting clean-up in the contest and looked the part, racking up his sixth straight multi-hit game. With the effort, he pushed his season slash to .349/.391/.442 over 86 at-bats. The 23-year-old really looks like he's starting to find his groove and should continue to produce, though cold spells are bound to crop up as pitchers adjust to his game. Rotoworld.com

  • Prado racks up three hits in loss to Snakes
    Martin Prado went 3-for-5 with an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: All three of Prado's hits were singles. In fact, of the Marlins' 12 hits as a team, only one, a J.T. Realmuto triple, went for extra-bases. The water torture netted the team six runs, which wasn't quite enough to come up on the right side of a 7-6 final score. Prado himself has managed just eight extra-base hits all season (six doubles, two home runs), which would explain the lackluster slugging in his .277/.313/.349 slash. Rotoworld.com

    Pablo Sandoval (knee) is out of the Red Sox starting lineup again on Thursday night.

    Advice: Pablo Sandoval left Tuesday's game after being hit on the left knee by a pitch and he did not make an appearance Wednesday. He still has some bruising around that knee. Brock Holt will start at third base for the Red Sox on Thursday against Rangers lefty Wandy Rodriguez. Rotoworld.com

  • Flaherty (groin) expected to begin rehab soon
    Ryan Flaherty (groin) is expected to begin playing in rehab games with Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday or Monday.

    Advice: Flaherty has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 12 because of a mild right groin strain. He should be ready to return when first eligible and will likely resume getting regular starts at second base for the Orioles, who will be without Jonathan Schoop (knee) until mid-July. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryant goes 1-for-3 with a run, RBI, SB
    Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with a stolen base, run and RBI in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Padres.

    Advice: Bryant is riding a nine-game hitting streak and has swiped a bag in two straight. Bryant didn't play in the first few weeks, but he's still on pace for 83 runs and 104 RBI. He has four homers, putting him on pace for 17. As long as he stays healthy, he's going to do better than that, which speaks well to his RBI potential. Rotoworld.com

  • Santana (back) expected to return Thursday
    Carlos Santana (back) is expected to return Thursday.

    Advice: Santana will miss his fourth straight game Wednesday with back spasms, but there has been significant progress. Santana, 29, is batting .220/.365/.341 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 35 games this season for the Tribe. Rotoworld.com

    Tests on Pablo Sandoval's left knee came back negative.

  • Donaldson homers, but Jays fall to Angels
    Josh Donaldson accounted for both Blue Jays runs in Tuesday's loss to the Angels, going 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a solo home run.

    Advice: Donaldson put the Jays on top early with a first-inning home run against Hector Santiago. He broke a 1-1 tie in the fifth with a sacrifice fly. He was batting leadoff for just the third time this season. Donaldson is hitting .316/.382/.551 with nine home runs and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He did everything but swing a bat. Wright was placed on the disabled list April 15 with a right hamstring strain and suffered a back injury while rehabbing that strain. There's no exact timetable for the veteran third baseman's return, but he should be good by early June if he is able to avoid further setbacks. Rotoworld.com

    David Wright (hamstring, back) will resume baseball activities on Monday.

    Advice: It doesn't mean he's poised to return to the Mets' lineup soon, as Wright has been shut down for over a week and will need a rehab assignment eventually. Still, it's a nice step in the right direction after an absence that's dragged on longer than expected.

  • Tomas hits first career homer in loss to PHI
    Yasmany Tomas went 2-for-4 and hit his first career home run in a 7-5 loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

    Advice: Tomas cracked his first major league homer off of Ken Giles in the eighth inning. The run drew the Diamondbacks to within 7-5, but they couldn't muster any more offense and went on to lose by that score. Tomas had been dealing with a bit of a flu bug on Friday, but he looked no worse for the wear on Saturday. This season, the rookie import is hitting .297/.348/.375 with that one home run, nine RBI and eight runs scored over 64 at-bats. The power hasn't come, yet, but Tomas has proven that he can hit at the big league level and more home runs should come as he acclimates. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Campbell was with the team a couple of weeks ago, but hit just .200/.323/.320 with a homer in 50 at-bats. The 28-year-old will serve as bench depth for the Mets and won't hold any fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Pablo Sandoval continues to struggle vs. LHP
    Pablo Sandoval went 0-for-3 against J.A. Happ on Friday to fall to 2-for-37 against left-handers this season.

    Advice: Sandoval has killed righties, but he's looked positively helpless batting right-handed. Considering that he was bad last year, too, it's about time he considers joining the club, which already boasts Shane Victorino and Daniel Nava as members, and giving up switch-hitting. The Red Sox don't really have an alternative for him against lefties; Sandoval's backup, Brock Holt, is a left-handed hitter. Rotoworld.com

  • Longoria takes collar in loss to Twins
    Evan Longoria went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Longoria and the Rays were unable to manage much offense at all, as they were held to eight hits, only two of which went for extra bases. This season, Longoria is hitting .272/.367/.440 with four home runs, 14 RBI and 20 runs scored. The numbers aren't horrible, but they're a far cry from the monster stats the third baseman has posted in the past. Rotoworld.com

  • Bryant homers, drives in four vs Pirates
    Kris Bryant went 1-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Friday's 11-10 win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Bryant socked a three-run homer off Jeff Locke in the third inning. The young star added a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. The home run was Bryant's fourth of the season. After some predictable hiccups following his call-up, Bryant has come on strong over the last few weeks. He's now hitting .273/.407/.465 with four home runs, 24 RBI and 17 runs scored. Rotoworld.com

  • Wright (hamstring) could be cleared on Monday
    The Mets hope David Wright (hamstring, back) will be cleared to resume activities on Monday.

    Advice: Wright had a setback a week ago with a back issue and has recovered from it more slowly than expected. He seems to be doing better now, though, and could be cleared for a rehab assignment not long after resuming activities. The third baseman seems to be tracking towards and early June return.

  • Matt Carpenter's go-ahead homer beats Tribe
    Matt Carpenter slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the eighth inning to lead the Cardinals past the Indians 2-1 on Thursday afternoon.

    Advice: Carpenter struck out in his first three at-bats against Indians starter Trevor Bauer, but he got to face Marc Rzepczynski in his fourth at-bat and drove a ball over the center field wall to put the Cardinals ahead for good. Carpenter is now batting .322/.387/.612 with six home runs, 23 RBI, and 26 runs scored in 30 games this season. He missed the Cardinals' series in Pittsburgh last weekend due to extreme fatigue, but the 29-year-old third baseman says he feels great now. We believe it. Rotoworld.com

  • Arenado collects 2 more hits, including a 2B
    Nolan Arenado finished 2-for-5 with a double on Wednesday against the Angels.

    Advice: The wheels flew off the axis early in Denver this year -- the club has lost 11 straight, tied for the second longest futility streak in club history -- but Arenado has clearly entered the next stage of his development, giving fans at least one thing to tune in for. Arenado will contend for MVP trophies in the future, but he's staring down the barrel of another hopeless summer. He's now slashing .294/.328/.560 with six homers and 17 RBI in 28 games.
