    John Gant (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Rome on Tuesday.

  • Brad Boxberger (oblique) back from DL
    Rays activated RHP Brad Boxberger from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Boxberger has been limited to just one appearance this season due to abdominal and oblique injuries. He could see some save chances down the stretch if the Rays trade Alex Colome. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:31 pm
  • Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) lands on DL
    Rays placed OF Oswaldo Arcia on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 27, with a right elbow strain.

    Advice: Arcia suffered the injury nearly a week ago and hasn't felt right even after returning to action. It's unclear at this point how much time he might miss. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm

  • Lorenzo Cain returns from disabled list stint
    Royals activated OF Lorenzo Cain from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Cain missed exactly a month of action with a strained left hamstring but is ready to roll now after playing a couple rehab games. Brett Eibner was optioned in a corresponding move. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:20 pm
  • Ryan Weber recalled from Triple-A
    Braves recalled RHP Ryan Weber from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Weber has struggled in his five appearances with the big club this season, posting a 9.28 ERA. He'll work in middle relief. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:41 am

  • Justin Bour (ankle) set for rehab assignment
    Justin Bour (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A New Orleans on Friday.

  • Jarred Cosart lands with Padres in trade
    Padres acquired RHPs Jarred Cosart, Carter Capps and Luis Castillo and 1B Josh Naylor from the Marlins in exchange for RHPs Andrew Cashner, Colin Rea, Tayron Guerrero and cash considerations.

    Advice: Cosart is a formerly a nice prospect but is a couple years removed from any amount of success. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and will try to get his career back on track in a new organization. He figures to join the Padres' rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:34 am
  • Colin Rea heads to Marlins with Cashner
    Marlins acquired RHP Colin Rea from the Padres in the Andrew Cashner trade.

    Advice: Rea has put up a 4.98 ERA over 99 1/3 innings this season, but he's under team control through 2021 and could develop into a solid back-end starter. He should hold down the fifth spot in the Marlins' rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:28 am
  • Dexter Fowler still nursing some soreness
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Friday that Dexter Fowler is "not 100 percent over the soreness."

    Advice: Fowler sat out Sunday with "general soreness" before playing in four straight, but he's out of the lineup again Friday. It seems fair to question whether it might actually be Fowler's hamstring that's bothering him again and the Cubs just don't want to divulge that information. The veteran outfielder was activated from the disabled list a week ago after missing over a month of action. The Cubs have Jason Heyward in center field, Ben Zobrist in right and Javier Baez at second base Friday. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:04 am
  • Walker (foot) to make rehab start on Monday
    Taijuan Walker (foot) will make a rehab start with Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

    Advice: Walker got through another bullpen session Friday with no issues, clearing the way for his return to game action. He's only missed about three weeks of action, so Walker might need just the one rehab outing before rejoining the Mariners' rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:23 am
  • Jhonny Peralta (thumb) making progress
    Jhonny Peralta (thumb) will join the Cardinals in Miami as soon as Friday to resume on-field baseball activities.

    Advice: Peralta would prefer to avoid a rehab assignment as he works his way back from soreness in his surgically-repaired left thumb. He's eligible for activation early next week, although it's unclear whether he might possibly be ready by that time. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:36 am

  • Jarred Cosart parts of Andrew Cashner deal
    ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that Jarred Cosart is one of the pieces headed to San Diego in the Andrew Cashner/Colin Rea trade.

    Advice: It looks like we have all the details of the deal now, as Cashner and Rea will go to Miami and Cosart, first base prospect Josh Naylor and pitching prospect Luis Castillo will be sent to San Diego. Cosart was once a decent prospect but has flamed out the last couple seasons and been particularly awful this year with a 5.95 ERA in the majors and poor numbers at Triple-A, as well. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:26 am
  • Orioles discussing Erasmo Ramirez with Rays
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Orioles have had trade discussions with the Rays regarding Erasmo Ramirez.

    Advice: They would be interested in using Ramirez as a starter, as he evidently represents a backup plan after they missed out on Andrew Cashner. Ramirez has been used almost exclusively as a reliever this season and hasn't gone more than two innings since mid-May, so obviously it will take a bit for his stamina to be built back up. He holds a 3.90 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 46/16 K/BB ratio over 60 innings this season and is under team control through 2019. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am
  • Marlins also get Colin Rea in Cashner deal
    Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are also receiving Colin Rea in the Andrew Cashner trade.

    Advice: They wanted to acquire two starters at the deadline and have done it in one fell swoop. Like Cashner, Rea has had a shaky season with a 4.98 ERA over 99 1/3 innings. He's just 26 and is under team control through 2021 and the hope is that he'll develop into a solid back-end starter. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:36 am
  • Gillaspie singles twice in loss to Nationals
    Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: The Giants could only find five hits as a team against a locked in Tanner Roark. Gillaspie had himself two of those. He also picked up an RBI on a second-inning ground out. That makes three consecutive games in which he has driven in a run. Despite his recent quiet success, there is no true fantasy intrigue here. Gillaspie has just four home runs and 17 RBI for the season as a whole. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:57 pm
  • Ziegler, Han-Ram combine to blow save
    Brad Ziegler coughed up a 1-0 ninth-inning lead in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Ziegler entered in the ninth attempting to secure the win for David Price, who gave the Red Sox eight shutout innings. It was not to be. After loading the bases with one out, Ziegler surrendered an infield grounder to Daniel Nava. Enter Hanley Ramirez, who fired home in an attempt to secure the first out on what might have been a game-ending double play. That was the idea, anyway, but Ramirez sailed the throw high to allow two runners to race home. Ballgame. This was Ziegler's third blown save of the season, his first in eight appearances with the Red Sox since coming over from the Diamondbacks via trade earlier this month. He has now allowed runs in back-to-back appearances and might be in line for a breather as this four-game set with the Angels unfolds. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:36 pm
  • Taijuan Walker drawing heavy trade interest
    Taiwan Walker (foot) is drawing strong trade interest, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

    Advice: Nightengale didn't mention which teams were interested, though he did say there will be scouts on hand for Walker's bullpen session Friday at Wrigley Field. Walker pitched a simulated game on Wednesday and is close to returning from a foot injury. He could be a good fit for the Marlins who are looking to add a controllable starting pitcher. Walker won't hit free agency until 2021. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:19 pm
  • Boxberger (oblique) on track for Friday
    Brad Boxberger made his second appearance in as many days Wednesday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Boxberger faced two batters, walking one and striking out the other. He is on track to rejoin the Rays' bullpen on Friday after missing nearly two full months with a left oblique strain. Boxberger also had an abdominal injury before that and has been limited to just one appearance this season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:01 am
  • Gillaspie rocks solo homer in loss to Reds
    Conor Gillaspie went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Gillaspie connected for a solo home run off Dan Straily in the third inning. That would stand as the Giants' only run of the contest. It was Gillaspie's fourth dinger of the 2016 campaign. In addition to that quartet of taters, the 29-year-old third baseman is slashing .250/.298/.405 and has driven in 16 runs in 116 at-bats. He holds no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:17 pm
  • Ziegler yields go-ahead homer to Cabrera
    Brad Ziegler allowed a go-ahead homer in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday as the Red Sox fell to the Tigers.

    Advice: Ziegler entered a 3-3 game and retired the first two batters he faced -- Ian Kinsler and Jose Iglesias -- but Cabrera launched a two-out solo bomb to right-center to put the Tigers on top. Ziegler is still the best bet for save opportunities in Boston until Craig Kimbrel (knee) returns from the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:38 pm
  • Walker (foot) might only need one rehab start
    Mariners manager Scott Servais said that Taijuan Walker (foot) will be reevaluated after he makes his first start on a rehab assignment.

    Advice: Walker tossed a three-inning simulated game on Wednesday. He will have a bullpen session on Friday and (assuming no setbacks) could begin a minor league rehab assignment on Monday. Servais said that once he makes that start, the team will reevaluate to determine whether he is ready to be activated from the disabled list. Right foot tendinitis has plagued him this summer. He hasn't pitched since July 1. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:07 pm
  • Walker (foot) nearing rehab assignment
    Taijuan Walker (foot) threw a successful three-inning simulated game on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll throw a bullpen session in two days and could then be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment -- possibly as soon as Monday at Triple-A Tacoma. Walker has been on the disabled list since July 5 due to tendinitis in his right foot. He's on track for an early-August activation, assuming no setbacks. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:53 am
  • McAllister (hip) to make one more rehab app
    Zach McAllister (hip) is scheduled to make one more minor league rehab appearance.

    Advice: McAllister has allowed one run in three innings between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus. The righty was placed on the disabled list July 7 with a hip injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:04 pm
  • Walker (foot) to throw sim game Wed.
    Taijuan Walker (foot) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Wednesday.

    Advice: Mariners manager Scott Servais told reporters that he wants to see Walker "get after it" to really test his right foot. A minor league rehab game could follow if the workout goes smoothly. Walker has been on the disabled list since July 5 with lingering foot tendinitis. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:00 pm
  • Fowler (soreness) drives in run in return
    Dexter Fowler (soreness) went 1-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in his return to the lineup Monday against the Mariners.

    Advice: Fowler was held out of the starting lineup Sunday due to general soreness, but he felt well enough to serve as the designated hitter for Monday's interleague contest. Cubs manager Joe Maddon told Carrie Muskat of MLB.com that he's still getting in "baseball shape" after his hamstring injury, so he should be back up to speed soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:17 am
  • Cain to begin minor league rehab assignment
    Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: Cain, who has been out for about a month with a left hamstring strain, got the green light after doing some running over the weekend. Barring a setback, he appears on track for a return around the end of the month. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:27 am
  • Jarred Cosart spins five shutout innings
    Jarred Cosart held the Phillies off the scoreboard over five frames but took a no-decision Monday.

    Advice: Cosart held the Phils to just three hits and one walk, but he racked up a high pitch count (92) as he often does, leading to him being pulled after just five innings. With the Marlins almost surely slated to acquire a starter or two this week, Cosart could be sent back to Triple-A. If he gets another start, it will come this weekend versus the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:04 pm
  • Colin Rea registers quality start Monday
    Colin Rea walked four batters but managed to record a quality start Monday, allowing three runs over six frames in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Rea is still walking way too many guys for someone who doesn't miss a ton of bats. He was able to limit the damage somewhat but still took his second straight loss. The right-hander will carry an unappealing 4.98 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into this weekend's outing against the Reds. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:02 pm
  • Arcia goes 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sun.
    Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sunday in the Rays' loss to the A's.

    Advice: Arcia made an early exit from Saturday's game after suffering a mild right elbow strain and may have still been in some discomfort for Sunday afternoon's series finale in Oakland. Arcia, 25, is batting .226/.301/.387 with six homers and 19 RBI in 52 games this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:16 am

  • Boxberger (oblique) won't return before Fri.
    Brad Boxberger (oblique) will not be activated from the disabled list before Friday.

    Advice: Boxberger has allowed two runs in three innings on his minor league rehab assignment, and he has yet to pitch on back-to-back days. That is scheduled to happen this week, with the Rays likely hoping to see better results. Boxberger has been limited to one appearance at the major league level this season because of oblique and abdominal issues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:03 am
  • Jarred Cosart recalled from Triple-A
    Marlins recalled RHP Jarred Cosart from Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Cosart will join the rotation on Monday against the Phillies, starting in place of the injured Wei-Yin Chen (elbow). Given how often the Marlins have been connected to pitching heading into the trade deadline, it's possible it'll just be a spot start for Cosart, although he could change minds with a strong showing. He holds a 7.98 ERA in three starts for Miami this season and a 4.14 mark in 12 starts at New Orleans. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:40 pm
  • Fowler sitting out with 'general soreness'
    Dexter Fowler is not in Sunday's lineup due to "general soreness," according to Cubs manager Joe Maddon.

    Advice: He could just be a little sore after playing two straight games following a disabled list stint. Fowler should be ready to go on Monday. Jason Heyward is in center field, Ben Zobrist is in left and Tommy La Stella is at second base Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:03 am
  • Cain (hamstring) to do some running Sunday
    Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) will do some running on Sunday.

    Advice: Royals manager Ned Yost said Sunday that Cain is getting close to beginning a rehab assignment. He's been on the shelf for nearly a month with a strained left hamstring but doesn't appear to be too far off from a return. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:46 am
  • Arcia goes 2-for-3 with an RBI on Saturday
    Oswaldo Arcia went 2-for-3 with an RBI but the Rays lost on Saturday.

    Advice: He stroked an RBI single in the second inning and added a double later in the game. The part-time player is now batting .230 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 152 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:04 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Cosart to start Monday versus Phillies
    Jarred Cosart will be called up from Triple-A to start Monday against the Phillies.

    Advice: Wei-Yin Chen has been scratched with an undisclosed injury. Cosart owns a rough 7.98 ERA in 14 2/3 innings this season at the MLB level and hasn't been dominant at Triple-A. There are better fantasy streaming options. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:45 pm
  • Oswaldo Arcia suffers mild elbow strain
    Oswaldo Arcia suffered a mild right elbow strain on Saturday night against the Athletics.

    Advice: Arcia was in obvious pain after a hard swing in the top of the seventh inning. He was 2-for-3 with an RBI in the game and is batting .230/.306/.395 for the year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:01 pm

  • Jhonny Peralta (thumb) nearing swings
    Jhonny Peralta (thumb) said he's hoping to begin swinging a bat in the next day or two.

    Advice: Peralta was placed on the 15-day disabled list July 19 with ongoing discomfort in his surgically-repaired left thumb. It sounds like he could be ready in mid-August, but this has become a lingering thing and it's possible there are more setbacks to come. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:55 pm

  • Fowler has monster game in return from DL
    Dexter Fowler celebrated his return from the disabled list by going 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three RBI, and two runs scored in Friday’s win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Fresh off missing a month and change with a hamstring injury, Fowler didn’t need any time to shake the rust. He made an immediate impact by socking a leadoff homer against Jimmy Nelson before adding an RBI double one inning later. The 30-year-old faded a bit in June prior to the injury, but he still owns a cool .298/.405/.504 batting line on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:50 pm
  • Dexter Fowler (hamstring) back from the DL
    Cubs activated OF Dexter Fowler from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Fowler's recovery from a strained right hamstring came along a little more slowly than expected, but he's ready to roll now. He's in center field and batting leadoff Friday against Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:55 pm
  • Taijuan Walker (foot) throws bullpen session
    Taijuan Walker (foot) threw a bullpens session Friday with no issues.

    Advice: He should be ready to make a rehab start soon. Walker has battled tendinitis in his right foot for a while now before finally being placed on the DL earlier this month, but it appears he's feeling better. He should return in late July or early August. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:00 pm
  • Fowler (hamstring) to join Cubs this weekend
    Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said Dexter Fowler (hamstring) will rejoin the team this weekend in Milwaukee.

    Advice: The exact day of his arrival is unclear, but it could be Friday for the opener of the three-game series. Fowler appeared in both games of a doubleheader Wednesday with Triple-A Iowa, going 1-for-5 with a double and a walk. The 30-year-old center fielder will return to a shiny .290/.398/.483 batting line. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:26 am
  • Fowler (hamstring) goes 1-for-5 in rehab
    Dexter Fowler (hamstring) went 1-for-5 with a double and a walk in a doubleheader Wednesday with Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Jorge Soler only played in the first game and went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts. Fowler should be ready to return to the Cubs' active roster this weekend if he can avoid a physical setback over the next couple of days. He's been on the disabled list since June 19 because of a right hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:08 am
  • Colin Rea allows four runs in loss to STL
    Colin Rea allowed four earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Rea was gifted a two-run lead in the top of the first inning but couldn't make it stick, yielding one run in the second, two in the fourth, and one more in the sixth. He has a 5.01 ERA for the year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:03 pm
  • Ziegler likely to see saves with Uehara down
    Brad Ziegler is likely to see regular save chances with Koji Uehara (pectoral) landing on the disabled list.

    Advice: Ziegler has made three scoreless appearances since joining the Red Sox, all in non-save situations. He has a 2.61 ERA in 41 1/3 innings for the year. Craig Kimbrel (knee) and Uehara are both out through at least mid-August, so Ziegler could suddenly have tremendous fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:23 am
  • Boxberger (oblique) set for rehab game
    Brad Boxberger (oblique) will make another rehab appearance Thursday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Boxberger allowed a solo home run in his rehab debut Monday with Charlotte, but he retried the other three batters he faced and Rays manager Kevin Cash offered a good report on the right-hander Tuesday evening. Boxberger has made just one appearance at the major league level this season due to abdominal and oblique injuries, so the Rays are probably going to ease him back. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:41 pm
  • Cardinals place Peralta (thumb) back on DL
    Cardinals placed 3B Jhonny Peralta on the 15-day disabled list with a left thumb injury.

    Advice: Peralta continues to experience nagging pain in his surgically-repaired left thumb. Hopefully a good two weeks of rest will finally solve the issue. He had batted just .221/.258/.416 in 30 games since his initial June 7 activation. Greg Garcia figures to see semi-regular action at third base in Peralta's absence. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:26 pm
    15-Day DL
