  • Flores out of Mets' lineup again Tuesday
    Wilmer Flores is out of the Mets' lineup again Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores has now been on the bench for three straight games following the additions of Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe. With Ruben Tejada as the regular shortstop, he will have to make the best of his opportunities as a bench player. Uribe is starting at third base Tuesday and Daniel Murphy will play second base.

  • Robertson (hand) begins rehab assignment
    Rays prospect SS Daniel Robertson (hand) started a rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League on Tuesday.

    Advice: He has been on the disabled list since early June after having his hamate bone in his left hand surgically removed. Prior to the injury, Robertson was batting .272/.347/.436 with 25 extra-base hits and 32 RBI through 49 games at Double-A Montgomery. The 21-year-old doesn’t come with the hype like some of the other shortstop prospects in the minor leagues, but he has the upside of an above-average everyday player thanks to his contact and on-base skills, strong defense and high baseball IQ. Robertson should be an option for the Rays at some point in 2016. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:07 am

  • Gregorius homers, knocks in 4 runs in a win
    Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a two-run single and a two-run home run as the Yankees downed the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Gregorius tied the game at 2-2 in the third inning when he drilled a two-run home run off of Matt Harrison. He added insurance in the seventh inning with a two-run single. It's only the fifth multi-RBI game of the season for the shortstop, who has left Yankees fans pining for Derek Jeter as he's hitting .248/.297/.340 with five home runs and 25 RBI.

  • Cabrera (hamstring) to be activated Tuesday
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.

    Advice: Cabrera played in his first rehab game with High-A Charlotte on Monday and evidently that's all he needed. The veteran shortstop will have missed just one day more than the minimum with a strained right hamstring. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:43 pm
  • Lindor's three-run homer not enough in a loss
    Francisco Lindor slugged a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Royals, finishing 1-for-5.

    Advice: The Indians had fallen behind 9-1 when Lindor brought them back in the game with a three-run home run off of Joe Blanton in the seventh inning. The 21-year-old has hit safely in six straight games and now owns a .260/.297/.377 batting line with four home runs and 15 RBI since making his major league debut on June 14.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:29 pm

  • Red Sox acquire Josh Rutledge from Angels
    Red Sox acquired INF Josh Rutledge from the Angels in exchange for OF Shane Victorino and cash.

    Advice: Rutledge entered spring training as the favorite to start at second base, but he lost out on that spot and has been at Triple-A Salt Lake all season, hitting .274/.323/.403. He's merely a depth guy at this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:10 pm

  • Mets asked Braves about Andrelton Simmons
    According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Mets asked the Braves about the availability of shortstop Andrelton Simmons, but "the conversation went nowhere."

    Advice: Olney says Atlanta "placed an unreachable price tag" on the 25-year-old. Simmons hasn't developed offensively as quickly as many were hoping, but he's a generational type of talent defensively and the kind of player the rebuilding Braves want to build around. Simmons is under contract with Atlanta through 2020 at some fairly reasonable rates. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:44 am
  • Asdrubal (hamstring) ready for rehab games
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is set to begin a rehab assignment Monday night with High-A Port Charlotte.

    Advice: Cabrera, who's been out since July 12 with a strained right hamstring, will play between five and seven innings in his first rehab game. The expectation is that his rehab assignment will be a short one. "He's a veteran guy, so he gives us as good a sense as anybody as to when he thinks he's ready," manager Kevin Cash said Sunday. "But I know he's itching to get back." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:00 am
  • Miguel Rojas leaves with shoulder injury
    Miguel Rojas was forced to leave Friday's game against the Padres due to a shoulder injury.

    Advice: He was replaced defensively be Adeiny Hechavarria. It isn't clear exactly what caused the issue, but it doesn't sound like it's a major injury. Expect him to return to the lineup in a couple of days. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:15 pm

  • Trevor Story cracks three doubles Saturday
    Rockies SS prospect Trevor Story collected three doubles Saturday in a win for Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Story has been ripping the cover off the ball with 15 hits in his last seven games. Since getting called up from Double-A New Britain on July 1, Story has hit .301 with a .663 slugging percentage. The power-hitting 22-year-old has 15 stolen bases to go with his 16 homers this year. Story has huge upside but it's going to be tough for him to find playing time in the major leagues with All-Star infielders Troy Tulowitzki, Nolan Arenado and D.J. LeMaheiu standing in his way.

  • Yankees DFA infielder Gregorio Petit
    Yankees designated INF Gregorio Petit for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a 40-man roster spot for reliever Nick Goody, who joined the Yankees on Saturday. Petit, 30, is a .254/.282/.358 career hitter in 82 major league games. There's a pretty good chance he clears waivers. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:21 pm

  • Tim Beckham delivers game-winner in eighth
    Tim Beckham delivered a two-run single in the eighth inning on Friday, leading the Rays to a come-from-behind 3-1 victory over the Orioles.

    Advice: The Rays entered the eighth trailing 1-0, but broke through with an RBI single by John Jaso to tie the game. After loading the bases with two outs, Beckham smacked a two-run single off Darren O'Day to put the Rays on top, and Jake McGee slammed the door the following inning. Beckham finished the night 1-for-2 plus a walk and is now hitting .236/.300/.453 with 18 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:29 pm

  • Lindor smacks homer in first to set tone
    Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday afternoon's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: The home run was Lindor's third of the season. He's hitting a relatively unimpressive .246/.284/.349 across 126 at-bats, but there's possible value to be had here in deeper AL-only formats so long as he continues to hit in the two-hole. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:03 pm
  • Segura fills up the box score against Indians
    Jean Segura did a bit of everything Tuesday, finishing 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base against the Indians.

    Advice: Segura was one of the few Brewers to find success against Indians starter Danny Salazar, hitting a two-run homer off him -- his first homer since June 5 -- in the second inning. The stolen base was his 14th of the year, and Segura is batting .282/.310/.361 overall in a decent bounce-back campaign. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:14 pm
  • Flores adds 2 hits, 2 RBI as Mets top Nats
    Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with a walk and two RBI as the Mets beat the Nationals 7-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores gave the Mets an early 1-0 lead in the fourth inning with a single, and added the final run in their four-run ninth inning with a ground out to make it 7-2. The infielder, playing second base for the better part of three-plus weeks, has a meager .252/.285/.387 triple-slash line with 10 home runs and 40 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:20 pm

  • Rojas (illness) enters game as pinch-runner
    Miguel Rojas (illness) entered Monday's game against the Diamondbacks as a pinch-runner.

    Advice: Rojas, who left Sunday's game due to illness, entered in the eighth inning and remained in the game to play defense. He should be good to go moving forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:43 am

  • Miguel Rojas leaves with upset stomach
    Miguel Rojas left Sunday's game versus the Phillies with an upset stomach.

  • Cabrera (hamstring) to resume activities
    Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) will resume baseball activities early this week.

    Advice: It shouldn't take him too long to get back up to speed since he's only missed a week of action. A return before the end of the month for Cabrera would seem to be possible. Rotoworld.com Jul 19, 8:59 am
