  • Domingo Santana (elbow) has 'big' setback
    Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Monday that Domingo Santana had a "big setback" with his right elbow.

    Advice: Santana was scratched from a rehab game on Monday after feeling continued soreness in his elbow. He'll be shut down for now, but suddenly his ability contribute at all in the second half is in question. Santana has been sidelined since June 7. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:43 pm

  • Rockies designate Barnes for assignment
    Rockies designated OF Brandon Barnes for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for David Dahl on the 40-man roster. Barnes owns an ugly .220/.250/.320 over 48 games with the Rockies this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:27 pm

  • Dahl batting sixth in MLB debut Monday
    Rockies purchased the contract of OF David Dahl from Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Dahl has officially been called up to the majors and will bat sixth and play left field in his major league debut Monday against the Orioles. The 22-year-old has batted .314/.394/.569 with 18 homers, 61 RBI, and 17 steals over 92 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. It's unclear how the playing time will shake out, but there could be a clear path if Carlos Gonzalez and/or Charlie Blackmon are traded. Obviously the fantasy potential is huge here, especially by virtue of playing half of his games in Coors Field. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:21 pm
  • Gardner not in Monday's lineup
    Brett Gardner is not in Monday's lineup versus the Astros.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against left-hander Dallas Keuchel. Rob Refsynder will start in left field and bat second.Daily Slant: Gardner, Alex Rodriguez and Brian McCann are all out of the lineup for the Yankees tonight. The Yankees don’t strike out much against southpaws (17.1%), but that’s about the only thing they have going for them in this match-up. They own the 4th worst wOBA (.304) and 3rd worst ISO (.127) against LHP and have been one of the poorest offenses on the road this season. Keuchel is still very good at keeping the ball on the ground (56.8 GB%) and has pitched much better in his home park over the last two seasons. He's allowed just a .293 wOBA to opposing hitters at home this year with a very respectable 4.6 Hd-Sft%, making him a viable target in any format. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:01 pm
  • Reddick (back) returns to A's lineup Monday
    Josh Reddick (back) has returned to the Athletics' starting lineup Monday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Reddick missed consecutive starts over the weekend due to back soreness, but he was able to play some defense on Sunday. It's not a major concern. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:44 pm
  • Cameron Maybin out Monday versus Red Sox
    Cameron Maybin is absent from the Tigers' starting lineup Monday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Andrew Romine will start in center field and bat ninth versus Boston lefty Drew Pomeranz. Maybin was also held out of action Sunday, so there could be an injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:43 pm

  • Altherr (wrist) shifts rehab to Triple-A
    Aaron Altherr (wrist) has shifted his rehab assignment to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Alther is batting .353/.511/.471 with one home run and two stolen bases in 11 minor league rehab games between the Gulf Coast League, High-A Clearwater, and Double-A Reading. Out all season with a torn tendon sheath in his left wrist, Altherr should be cleared to join the Phillies' outfield mix by the end of this week. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:40 am

  • Yanks pick up McKinney in Chapman trade
    Yankees acquired OF Billy McKinney, SS Gleyber Torres, RHP Adam Warren, and OF Rashad Crawford from the Cubs in exchange for LHP Aroldis Chapman.

    Advice: McKinney has struggled this season at Double-A Tennessee, batting just .252/.355/.322 with one home run in 88 games, but he was considered a top-100 prospect leading into the 2016 campaign and he's relatively young for the Double-A level at age 21. Chicago acquired McKinney from Oakland two years ago as part of the Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel trade. He'll try to get back on the radar in the Yankees' system. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:13 am

  • A's recall Max Muncy from AAA Nasvhille
    Athletics recalled INF/OF Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Muncy is batting .257/.366/.314 in 41 plate appearances this season at the major league level. The 25-year-old infielder is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance, even if trades open up playing time for him. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:14 am

  • McKinney also headed to Yanks for Chapman
    Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports that outfield prospect Billy McKinney is also involved in the Aroldis Chapman trade.

    Advice: So now we have McKinney, shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, and right-hander Adam Warren heading to the Yankees along with a fourth unidentified piece. That is a massive haul for New York -- far better than what the Reds received from the Yankees for Chapman this past winter. McKinney has struggled this season at Double-A Tennessee, but he was considered a top-100 prospect leading into 2016 and the 2013 first-rounder is only 21 years old. Chicago landed McKinney from Oakland two years ago in the Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel trade. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:09 am

  • Cubs not making Kyle Schwarber available
    Cubs president Theo Epstein is making it clear that rehabbing slugger Kyle Schwarber is not available for trade, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

    Advice: Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is known to covet Schwarber, but Sherman says Epstein and Co. would not even discuss the 23-year-old as part of a possible return for Aroldis Chapman or Andrew Miller. Maybe a bigger fish will swim along and change Theo's mind, but it sure appears Schwarber will open the 2017 season in a Cubs uniform. He is done for the 2016 season following a major left knee injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:57 am

  • Indians promoting Clint Frazier to Triple-A
    Indians outfield prospect Clint Frazier has been promoted to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Frazier earned the level bump by slashing .278/.357/.473 with 13 home runs, 25 doubles, 48 RBI, and 13 stolen bases in 88 games with Double-A Akron. The 21-year-old was drafted fifth overall in 2013 out of a high school in Georgia and has impressed at just about every turn. He was rated a top-50 prospect leading into the 2016 campaign by both MLB.com and Baseball America. Baseball Prospectus had him ranked 53rd. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:41 am

  • Tyler Collins (neck) slugs pinch-hit homer
    Tyler Collins (neck) slugged a pinch-hit solo homer Sunday in the Tigers' loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Collins' solo shot in the top of the ninth inning off Chicago closer David Robertson was part of a three-homer barrage that tied the game at 4-4. But the White Sox rallied in the bottom of the frame to grab the 5-4 walkoff win. Collins had been sidelined for a couple of days due to muscle spasms in his neck. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:23 am
  • 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 Today, 3:16 am

  • Reddick (back) plays inning of right field
    Josh Reddick (back) played an inning of right field Sunday in the A's defeat of the Rays.

    Advice: That's a pretty good indication that his return to the starting lineup is imminent. Reddick has been bothered by a sore back since Saturday. It's nothing serious. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:13 am
  • Piscotty plates two in loss to Dodgers Sunday
    Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Cardinals fell to the Dodgers on Sunday night.

    Advice: Piscotty's two-run double off Adam Liberatore in the seventh inning pulled the Cardinals to within three runs at 9-6, but that would be as close as they would get. With the two-hit attack, Piscotty is now slashing an impressive .295/.366/.490 with 14 homers and 58 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm

  • Rockies to designate Barnes for assignment
    The Rockies are expected to designate Brandon Barnes for assignment on Monday.

    Advice: The club plans to call up top prospect David Dahl on Sunday, and it looks as though Barnes will be the odd-man out. The 30-year-old outfielder has hit just .220/.250/.320 with no homers, eight RBI and a 30/3 K/BB ratio in 109 plate appearances with the big league club this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:28 pm

  • Rockies set to recall David Dahl on Monday
    The Rockies announced Sunday that top prospect David Dahl will be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

    Advice: The club gets the benefit of having a designated hitter for their series in Baltimore to begin the week, so they'll take a look at the sweet-swinging outfielder. With Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon on the trade block, Dahl could be up with the big league club to stay. The 22-year-old is hitting .314/.394/.569 with 18 homers, 61 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 92 games between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque this season. He's immediately an interesting commodity in all mixed leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:27 pm
  • Josh Reddick (back) out again on Sunday
    Josh Reddick (back) remained out of the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

  • Josh Reddick scratched with back soreness
    Josh Reddick was scratched from the A's lineup on Saturday due to back soreness.

    Advice: It sounds like a day-to-day type of thing. Reddick has posted a cool .295/.374/.433 batting line in 61 games this season and will be a big trade chip for the Athletics ahead of the August 1 non-waiver deadline. There is known to be interest from the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:19 pm
  • Mookie Betts (knee) absent from BoSox lineup
    Mookie Betts (knee) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Mookie Betts was forced to leave Friday's game against the Twins due to right knee soreness.

    Advice: Betts started the game off with a bang, belting a leadoff home run for the second consecutive night. It's unclear when exactly he sustained the injury, though it doesn't sound serious. Betts is listed as day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:43 pm
  • Piscotty hits pinch three-run homer Thursday

    Advice: Piscotty was called on to hit for Matt Adams against lefty Ryan Buchter with two on and one out in a 5-2 game, and he delivered with a blast to center field that just eluded the glove of Travis Jankowski. The homer was Piscotty's 14th of the year to go with 56 RBI and 57 runs scored. The 25-year-old is hitting .297/.370/.497 in his first full campaign. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:46 pm

The five-tool beast is now hitting .306/.345/.527 with 19 homers, 62 RBI, 78 runs scored and 16 stolen bases on the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:09 pm

  • Cubs looking at A's outfielder Josh Reddick
    According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Cubs are "looking at" A's outfielder Josh Reddick.

    Advice: Morosi notes that Cubs president Theo Epstein drafted Reddick in Boston back in 2006. It's been a frustrating 2016 for the 29-year-old outfielder, who missed part of May and most of June with a fractured thumb, but he has been a productive hitter when healthy for going on five years and he's only owed about $3 million on his current contract. Reddick can become a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:43 am
  • Betts goes 3-for-5 and steals a base on Wed.
    Mookie Betts went 3-for-5, including two doubles, and stole a base on Wednesday.

    Advice: Betts is rocking an amazing .302/.342/.516 slash line with 18 homers, 75 runs, 60 RBI and 16 steals. He is on pace to easily surpass his totals from last year's breakout season in every category. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:36 pm
  • Tyler Collins scratched with neck spasms
    Tyler Collins was scratched from the Tigers' lineup Wednesday because of neck spasms.

    Advice: Mike Aviles will draw the start in right field and bat seventh versus Twins right-hander Ervin Santana. Collins is probably going to be labeled as day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:49 am
  • Reddick hits cue shot walkoff single vs HOU
    Josh Reddick hit a walk-off, opposite-field RBI single to beat the Astros in the 10th inning of Tuesday night's 4-3 victory.

    Advice: Reddick didn't exactly scald the walk-off winner against Tony Sipp, but as the old adage goes, he just needed to hit it where they ain't. In this case, the Astros employed the shift when Reddick stepped to the plate. He proceeded to hit an opposite-field grounder that would have likely been gobbled up by Carlos Correa had the shift not been on. As is, the ball just squeaked through to score Marcus Semien. For the season as a whole, Reddick is slashing .298/.378/.439 with six homers and 23 RBI over 205 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:18 pm
  • Altherr (wrist) moves to High-A on rehab
    Aaron Altherr (wrist) had his minor league rehab assignment transferred to High-A Clearwater.

    Advice: Altherr, who is working his way back from left wrist surgery, batted .375 with a homer, a double, six walks, and a 1.190 OPS over 23 plate appearances during his time with the Phillies' rookie league affiliate. His season originally appeared to be at risk, but he appears on track to be a significant contributor down the stretch. He's worth a stash in NL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 1:54 pm

  • Cashman thinks Schwarber could hit 50 HR
    According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Yankees GM Brian Cashman covets Kyle Schwarber and believes he'd be a threat for 50 homers if he played at Yankee Stadium.

    Advice: The Cubs are in the market for a late-inning reliever and the Yankees have a surplus of those with Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman both being floated as trade options. Cashman obviously has his sights set on Schwarber, but the Cubs have so far shown no interest in trading him, particularly for a rental like Chapman. Schwarber tore both his LCL and MCL in an outfield collision earlier this season. He's expected to be ready for Opening Day next year. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 9:57 am

    Advice: Gardner hit a solo shot off Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez, a lefty, in the third inning. The 32-year-old is having a bit of a down year with just six homers and 23 RBI, but he's got 50 runs scored hitting at or near the top of the Yankees lineup. Gardner is batting .257/.353/.363 overall. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 6:01 pm
  • Josh Reddick homers, scores four runs
    Josh Reddick reached four times, homered and scored four runs Friday in Oakland's 8-7 edging of Toronto.

    Advice: Reddick usually comes to the plate with two out and none on, so he's not often in a position to score (or drive in) runs. He had some fun tonight, though. It's the second time in his career that he's scored four runs in a game. He's just the second Athletic in the last two seasons to score four times; Coco Crisp did it on June 25. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 10:55 pm
  • Domingo Santana (elbow) near rehab games
    Domingo Santana (elbow) is aiming to begin a minor league rehab assignment in a week or so.

    Advice: Santana has resumed baseball activities after a lengthy shutdown period. The young outfielder was placed on the disabled list June 10 with right elbow soreness and will continue to be eased back into action. We wouldn't expect to see him before mid-August or so.
