The 33-year-old has cooled off considerably since being activated from the disabled list a month ago, but is still hitting a respectable .272/.315/.437 with seven home runs and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Khris Davis (knee) to be activated Tuesday
    Khris Davis (knee) is slated to return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Davis is ready to return now, but he played in five rehab games in five days through Sunday so the Brewers wanted to give him a day of rest before activating him. The outfielder missed five and a half weeks of action with a torn meniscus in his right knee. Rotoworld.com

  • Huntington says Polanco will not be demoted
    Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said that the idea of sending the struggling Gregory Polanco to Triple-A "hasn't even been a conversation."

    Advice: That's a very strong endorsement from Huntington. He elaborated by saying, "We believe Gregory Polanco is going to be a quality major league player but there are growing pains. There is an evolution for a young player." The 23-year-old outfielder is hitting .231/.300/.330 with three homers, 19 RBI and 17 steals across 273 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Gregory Polanco not in Sunday's lineup
    Gregory Polanco is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's rare to see Polanco sitting versus a righty, but Danny Salazar has fared a bit better against left-handed batters in his career. Josh Harrison is in right field Sunday, with Jung-Ho Kang handling third base. Rotoworld.com

  • Nolan Reimold to go on paternity leave
    Nolan Reimold is expected to go on the paternity list after Sunday's game.

    Advice: He can be away from the team for up to three days. The 31-year-old has played sparingly this year, making just 38 at-bats over 16 games. The 10-day minor league rehab window doesn't apply to players on paternity leave. That allows Ryan Flaherty to take Reimold's roster spot even though he was just optioned on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays designate Marc Krauss for assignment
    Rays designated 1B Marc Krauss for assignment.

  • Moss cranks two-run homer in win over Pirates
    Brandon Moss went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Moss launched his two-run shot off of Pirates starter Charlie Morton in the second inning. It was the first baseman's 14th bomb of the season and pushed his RBI total to 44. He might not hit for much average (currently .230), but his 14 homers put him on track to come close to--if not surpass--the career-high 30 he smacked in 2013. Moss is looking to post his fourth straight season with 20 or more long balls. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Moss homers, knocks in five
    Brandon Moss had a three-run homer and a two-run double Wednesday against the Rays.

    Advice: Moss's average has been slipping some, but the power has been consistent; he hit four homers in each of the first three months of the season. He's now driven in 42 runs in 72 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Marc Krauss strikes out twice
    Marc Krauss struck out in both of his at-bats Wednesday before being removed for a pinch-hitter.

    Advice: Incredibly, it's the second time in four games for the Rays that Krauss, a left-handed hitter, has been replaced by a right-handed pinch-hitter against a right-handed pitcher. Which makes one wonder why the Rays are playing him at first base or why they bothered acquiring him in the first place. He's 1-for-10 so far for the team. Rotoworld.com

  • Shane Robinson leaves after HBP on elbow
    Shane Robinson left Wednesday's game against the Reds after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch.

    Advice: Robinson stayed in to run the bases after being pelted by the Johnny Cueto offering, but he appeared to be in a lot of pain so it's no surprise he eventually exited. It's unclear whether he'll need to have X-rays. Rotoworld.com

  • Shane Robinson scratched due to the flu

  • Khris Davis (knee) to begin rehab assignment

  • Preston Tucker not in Astros lineup Saturday
    Preston Tucker is not in the Astros starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Evan Gattis is getting the start in left field for the Astros while Chris Carter plays first base and Jon Singleton serves as the team's designated hitter. Tucker, who has been extremely inconsistent in his rookie campaign, is hitting just .185/.243/.338 with two homers and eight RBI in the month of June. Rotoworld.com
