  • Cabrera leaves with mild groin strain Sunday
    Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Athletics with a mild groin strain.

    Advice: Cabrera felt a pop in his groin area while scurrying back to second base in the seventh inning. While he's sore, he thinks he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list and should return to the lineup in a couple of days. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez's 3 hits contribute to Astros' win
    Marwin Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored as the Astros held off the Tigers on Sunday.

    Advice: Jose Altuve wasn't in the lineup Sunday as he was getting a day of rest. Gonzalez took second base in his stead and performed admirably, contributing to a 10-run outburst on the afternoon. He's hitting .263/.271/.421 on the year with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 13 runs scored. Rotoworld.com

  • Simmons hits RBI single in low-scoring win
    Andrelton Simmons went 1-for-2 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: At the time Simmons hit his run-scoring single off of Jimmy Nelson in the sixth inning, it made the score 2-0. The Brewers would drive closer with a run in the seventh, but Simmons' RBI would ultimately stand as the barrier between victory and defeat. The RBI was his 18th of the year and Simmons is now hitting .248/.307/.394. He's cooled off a bit since a hot start. Rotoworld.com

  • Brock Holt removed after hit by line drive
    Brock Holt was removed early from Sunday's game against the Angels after he was struck in the arm by a line drive.

    Advice: Holt hung around for another few innings afterwards, but claimed he started to lose feeling in his arm as the game wore on. Pablo Sandoval replaced him and finished the game at third base for the Red Sox. Holt should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores manages two hits in drubbing by PIT
    Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Flores can proudly tell his grandchildren that he did not strike out against Francisco Liriano in a game that saw 12 strikeouts by the former Twin. Not only did Flores not strike out, he managed the only run for the Mets (on an RBI single in the fifth inning) and was the only Met to record more than one hit. He's hitting .252/.288/.417 with six homers and 16 RBI this season. Rotoworld.com

    Jean Segura (finger) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

    Advice: Segura will undergo an X-ray on Monday to see if his fractured right pinkie finger is healed. If it is, a decision will be made on whether he needs a short rehab assignment. Friday is the first day he's eligible to return from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com

  • Ruben Tejada to get long look at 3B
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Ruben Tejada will be given multiple starts at third base.

    Advice: Eric Campbell has really struggled at the hot corner, so the Mets will give Tejada a long look at the position. With David Wright (back) looking like he'll be sidelined for a while long, Tejada could settle into the position for a while if he plays well. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Iglesias (knee) has X-rays, MRI
    Jose Iglesias underwent X-rays and an MRI, which confirmed that he is merely dealing with a left knee contusion.

    Advice: Iglesias injured the knee when he collided with the Astros' Chris Carter on Saturday. He's not in Sunday's lineup but isn't expected to miss much time. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:20 am
  • Jose Iglesias (knee) not in Sunday's lineup
    Jose Iglesias (knee) is not in the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Iglesias banged knees with the Astros' Chris Carter on Saturday, forcing him from the game. He only has a bruise but is likely still pretty sore. Andrew Romine is at shortstop in his place. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:38 am
  • Jose Iglesias leaves early with bruised knee
    Jose Iglesias is day-to-day after leaving Saturday's game with a left knee contusion.

    Advice: He banged knees with Chris Carter on an infield single back in the third inning. Hernan Perez came in to pinch-run for Iglesias after he singled again in the fifth. Perez and Andrew Romine are candidates to fill in at shortstop if Iglesias misses time. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Espinosa not in Nats lineup Saturday
    Danny Espinosa is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Dan Uggla will get the start in his place and hit seventh against Cole Hamels and the Phillies. Look for Espinosa to be back in at his regular spot on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Ahmed comes up big in 13-inning win
    Nick Ahmed homered and delivered a game-winning single in the 13th as the Diamondbacks edged the Cubs 5-4 on Friday.

    Advice: Nick Ahmed? The homer was his first of 2015 and second in 174 major league at-bats. He raised his average from .l94 to .212 with his first three-hit game of the year. His defense has been terrific, which is why he won the job in the first place. Anything he offers with the bat is a bonus as far as the Diamondbacks are concerned. 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

  • 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

  • Hardy notches go-ahead RBI single in eighth
    J.J. Hardy broke a 4-4 tie in the eighth inning with an RBI single.

    Advice: Hardy hit the one-out single off of Danny Farquhar to score Chris Davis, helping the Orioles to push back the Mariners 5-4. He finished 1-for-4. In the 12 games he's played since being activated from the disabled list on May 7, Hardy is 9-for-46 with two homers, a double and four RBI. He's currently hitting .196/.229/.348. The numbers aren't particularly good, but we'll preach patience for the time being. Rotoworld.com

  • Cabrera lifts second home run in win over ATL
    Asdrubal Cabrera hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Cabrera hit a solo shot off Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz in the fourth inning, his only hit in four at-bats. Cabrera was given a prime opportunity early in the season, batting third for 23 games for manager Kevin Cash, but he failed to capitalize and has now been moved lower in the order. The infielder is batting just .214 with his two homers and 11 RBI in 39 games. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:14 pm
  • Santana batting leadoff Tuesday
    Danny Santana will bat leadoff Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It will be his first start out of the leadoff spot since April 29. Santana has hit safely in five straight games, but he still owns a .254/.270/.343 batting line on the year to go along with a 37/2 K/BB ratio. Batting leadoff certainly enhances his fantasy appeal, but it's not the best baseball move. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrelton Simmons sitting out Sunday
    Andrelton Simmons is not in the Braves' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's simply a day of rest. Pedro Ciriaco is at shortstop in Simmons' place. Rotoworld.com

  • Flores crushes grand slam against Brewers
    Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's 14-1 demolition of the Brewers.

    Advice: Flores' grand slam off Matt Garza accounted for four of the 10 runs the Mets scored in the fourth inning. With the slam, he now has six homers and 15 RBI. Flores provides a bit of pop for the Mets, but outside of that, there's nothing particularly flashy about his .250/.296/.454 batting line. Rotoworld.com
    May 16, 7:15 pm
  • Santana triples in win over Rays
    Danny Santana went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple in Friday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Santana's seventh-inning triple off of Rays starter Jake Odorizzi tied the game at 2-2. The shortstop would subsequently score on a Brian Dozier sacrifice fly to help seal the 3-2 win for the now 20-16 Twins. The triple was Santana's third of the season. He had seven three-baggers in 2014, a number that he's well on his way to surpassing. The rest of his numbers are a little less impressive, though, as he's hitting just .252/.269/.346 with no home runs, eight RBI and 17 runs scored, plus three steals. Rotoworld.com
    May 15, 8:44 pm
  • Hardy homers in loss to Angels
    J.J. Hardy went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: The homer was Hardy's second of the season. He hit it in the eighth inning off of Jered Weaver to break up Weaver's shutout, though the Orioles were unable to score another run and eventually fell 3-1. Hardy was activated from the disabled list on May 7 and has six hits (one double, two homers) in 28 at-bats since his return. Rotoworld.com
