  • Wilmer Flores plays hero in win over Nats
    Wilmer Flores clubbed a walk-off homer in the 12th inning to give the Mets a 2-1 win over the Nationals on Friday.

    Advice: You couldn't write it up any better. Flores, who cried on the field Wednesday night after believing that he had been traded to the Brewers, drove in both runs for the Mets on Friday night and was the most popular person at Citi Field. After hitting an RBI single in the fourth inning, he took Felipe Rivero deep to lead off the bottom of the 12th to end it. It was a feel-good moment for Flores and for the Mets, who are two games back of the Nationals in the NL East. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Gyorko plates three as Padres outlast Marlins
    Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-4 and drove home three runs on Friday as the Padres topped the Marlins 8-3 in 11 innings.

    Advice: Gyorko tied the game at 2-2 with an RBI single in the fourth inning and delivered a two-run single as part of a five-run uprising in the 11th. While he has picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks, he is still hitting just .233/.296/.350 with 21 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:31 pm
  • Dietrich slugs game-tying homer in ninth
    Derek Dietrich slugged a game-tying solo homer off Craig Kimbrel with two outs in the ninth inning on Friday.

    Advice: Unfortunately for the Marlins, his heroics went for naught as they fell in extra innings to the Padres. It was the lone hit in four at-bats on the night for Dietrich who is hitting .273/.373/.545 with six homers and eight RBI in his limited action this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:27 pm

  • Dodgers place Justin Turner on 15-day DL
    Dodgers placed INF Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28, with a skin infection on his right thigh.

    Advice: Alex Guerrero and Alberto Callaspo will continue to hold down the fort at the hot corner until Turner is ready to return. He's in the midst of an outstanding season offensively, slashing .323/.387/.563 with 13 homers and 44 RBI in just 254 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:55 pm

  • Robinson Cano (abdomen) out again Friday
    Robinson Cano (abdomen) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's likely to sit out through the weekend with a Grade 1 abdominal strain. The Mariners have brought up Ketel Marte for infield help while Cano recovers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:53 pm
  • Ketel Marte recalled from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled INF Ketel Marte from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Just 21, Marte has hit .314/.359/.410 with 20 steals at Tacoma this season. He'll likely handle second base for a while with Robinson Cano (abdomen) banged up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:48 pm
  • Joe Panik (back) returns to Giants' lineup
    Joe Panik (back) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.

  • Donovan Solano back from paternity leave

  • Marlins activate, then release Jeff Baker
    Marlins activated INF Jeff Baker from the 15-day disabled list; released hmi.

    Advice: Baker is apparently over his intercostal strain but is now looking for a new job. The 34-year-old has hit only .208/.288/.375 this season, but he's been a big weapon versus lefties in the past so someone figures to take a shot on him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:40 am

  • Devon Travis (shoulder) headed to DL
    Blue Jays placed 2B Devon Travis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 29, with a left shoulder strain.

    Advice: Travis re-injured his left shoulder on Tuesday. He was given a cortisone shot in hopes that he'd be able to power through the ailment, but apparently it hasn't had the desired effect. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 am

  • Eddie Rosario homers, triples, doubles
    Eddie Rosario missed the cycle by a single, knocked in three runs and scored three runs Thursday as the Twins beat the Mariners 9-5.

    Advice: Rosario was hitting .272/.296/.396 a week ago. Eight extra-base hits in five games have changed that in a hurry, pushing him up to .294/.316/.462. One would think his lack of plate discipline will catch up to him at some point, but even if that happens, his defense in left field will help him stay in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 pm

  • D.J. LeMahieu goes 3-for-4 against Cards
    D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 on Thursday, raising his average to .325.

    Advice: That's three three-hit games in four days for the NL All-Star. Still, LeMahieu's value is down since the start of the week, since he's now batting lower in the Rockies order following the Jose Reyes acquisition. With Reyes taking over the second spot, LeMahieu hit sixth tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:19 pm
  • Phillips fills it up: 2 HR, 7 RBI, 2 SB
    Brandon Phillips went 4-for-5 with two homers, seven RBI and two steals as the Reds smoked the Pirates 15-5 on Thursday.

    Advice: That's about as good of a game for fantasy purposes as you'll see. According to Baseball-Reference's Play Index, he's the first player since Ryan Spilborghs in 2009 with two homers and two steals in a game. He's just the third since at least 1914 with seven RBI and two steals, joining Mickey Mantle in 1962 and Gary Sheffield in 1995. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:09 pm
  • Brewers purchase contract of Elian Herrera
    Brewers purchased the contract of INF/OF Elian Herrera from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

  • Travis (shoulder) receives cortisone shot
    Devon Travis received a cortisone shot in his left shoulder on Wednesday.

    Advice: Travis left Tuesday's game after aggravating the injury. He's slated to rest Thursday before being reevaluated Friday, so a decision about a stint on the disabled list could be made at that time. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:56 pm

  • Lawrie's 4 hits, 4 RBI not enough to beat LAD
    Brett Lawrie went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a homer, three runs scored and four RBI in a loss Wednesday to the Dodgers.

    Advice: He also stole a bag in the monster performance. Lawrie started at third tonight, but he's expected to also draw starts at second base in the wake of Tuesday's Ben Zobrist trade. He's slashing .280/.314/.412 and is on pace for 14 homers, 67 RBI, 54 runs and eight steals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:49 pm

  • Yangervis Solarte goes 4-for-5
    Yangervis Solarte finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Solarte is playing fairly regularly with Will Middlebrooks in the minors and Cory Spangenberg on the DH, and he's hit well this month, batting .284 with three homers in 74 at-bats. There's no mixed-league value here at all, but he's giving the Padres a lift. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:38 pm
  • Schoop homers as Orioles edge the Braves
    Jonathan Schoop went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run as the Orioles narrowly defeated the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Schoop's homer, in the third inning off of Michael Foltynewicz, turned out to be the deciding factor as it broke a scoreless tie in the Orioles' shutout. The second baseman has gone yard seven times in 27 games this season while knocking in 15 and batting .268/.310/.561. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:15 pm

  • Goins reaches base 3 times as the Jays win
    Ryan Goins went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI double in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Phillies.

    Advice: The Jays banged out 16 hits against the Phillies' pitching, so Goins' contributions were relative drops in the bucket. Still a productive night. He doubled in a run in the seventh to push the Jays' lead to 8-1 at the time. Goins has otherwise not done much at the dish, batting .227/.274/.323 with two home runs and 26 RBI.

  • Wilmer Flores heading to Brewers for Gomez
    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Wilmer Flores will head to the Brewers with Zack Wheeler in exchange for outfielder Carlos Gomez.

    Advice: It's unclear if he'll be utilized at shortstop for the Mets, or if he'll take over their vacancy at third base. The 23-year-old was hitting .249/.281/.379 with 10 homers and 40 RBI in 92 games with the Mets this season. It's a nice haul for the Brewers in exchange for a year-plus of Gomez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:17 pm
  • Justin Turner will miss a few more games
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Justin Turner will miss a few more games due to the infection in his leg.

    Advice: Turner was forced to sit out on Tuesday and Wednesday after a pimple in his leg became infected and required a trip to the emergency room. Look for Alberto Callaspo and Alex Guerrero to continue see additional playing time in his absence. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:56 pm

  • Baez goes yard twice in Tuesday's return
    Cubs SS prospect Javier Baez blasted two home runs Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: it was his first game back in Triple-A after missing close to two months with a broken finger. Tuesday marked Baez's third multi-homer game of 2015. He's dominated the minor leagues this season, hitting .325 across 157 at-bats while posting a stellar .399 on base percentage. The 22-year-old has come up in trade rumors and could be dealt ahead of Friday's deadline. Starlin Castro, the Cubs' current shortstop, could also be available. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:27 pm

  • Asdrubal Cabrera homers in Rays' loss
    Asdrubal Cabrera belted a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Cabrera's solo shot in the fifth inning represented the lone run for the Rays. He also gave it back and then some, as a crucial error by the shortstop in the seventh led to the Tigers' only two runs. Cabrera is batting just .231/.281/.373 for Tampa this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:54 am
  • Padres talking to Cubs about Javier Baez
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Padres have discussed Javier Baez with the Cubs.

    Advice: FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reported on Monday that they've also talked to the Cubs about Starlin Castro as they look for a long-term solution at shortstop. The Cubs are interested in a few of the Padres' starters, namely Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner, so the two sides could be a match. Baez has spent all season at Triple-A Iowa, batting .317/.387/.572 with 10 homers over 38 games in an injury-shortened campaign. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:39 am

    Advice: Cano initially was hurt while playing the field on Monday. The ailment isn't considered serious, as the Mariners are saying the MRI is precautionary. He's expected to travel with the M's for their road trip that begins Thursday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:30 am

  • Joe Panik (back) to sit out again Wednesday
    Joe Panik will miss a second straight game Wednesday due to back tightness.

    Advice: Panik noted that it wasn't one play that caused the injury, but rather it's just "one of those things" you have to deal with during a long season. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:24 am
  • Ryan collects three RBI in lopsided victory
    Brendan Ryan had two RBI doubles -- both coming in the second inning -- and finished 2-for-6 with three RBI in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Yankees batted around in an 11-run second inning, with Ryan providing a two-run double early before capping the scoring with another RBI double later in the inning. The offensive performance was unusual for Ryan, who had just eight RBI in 49 games all of last season. Ryan is hitting a deceptive .276/.323/.517 through 11 games this year.

  • Altuve's first five-RBI game propels Astros
    Jose Altuve finished 3-for-5 with five RBI and a run scored in the Astros' 10-5 win over the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Altuve drove in runs in three different innings, proving to be in the right place at the right time on several occasions. He had an RBI single in the second, a two-run single in the fourth and a two-run double in the sixth. The five-RBI game was his first in 606 career games. The second baseman is batting .305/.349/.432 with nine homers, 48 RBI, 54 runs scored and 28 steals overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:48 pm
  • Kendrick has 2 of Dodgers' 3 hits in a loss
    Howie Kendrick went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Sonny Gray tossed a three-hit shutout, and Kendrick was responsible for two of those three hits. The second baseman entered the game 3-for-26 in his previous six games, losing nearly 30 points of OPS. He owns a .285/.333/.397 triple-slash line with seven home runs, 40 RBI, and 45 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • LeMahieu falls homer shy of cycle in Rox win
    D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and two runs scored in the Rockies' 7-2 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Advice: LeMahieu got the scoring started with an RBI double in the first inning, coming around to score later in the inning. He fell a homer shy of a cycle, but that's not terribly surprising given that he's hit just 13 homers in 469 career games. Still, the 27-year-old is on fire in July, riding an 18-game hitting streak en route to a .324/.381/.423 overall line. His 56 runs scored are eighth-most in the National League. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:44 pm
  • Travis hits leadoff HR, but Jays fall to PHI
    Devon Travis hit a leadoff home run in a 1-for-2 effort before leaving Tuesday's loss to the Phillies with a left shoulder injury.

    Advice: Travis was batting leadoff following the departure of shortstop Jose Reyes in the Troy Tulowitzki trade. He greeted Adam Morgan rudely with a home run to lead off the game. He struck out to end the second inning before leaving the game with a left shoulder injury, likely a re-aggravation of the issue which forced him to the disabled list for five weeks earlier this season. Travis has otherwise had a great season, batting .304/.361/.498 with eight home runs and 35 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:03 pm

    Advice: Travis will get the first crack at taking over the leadoff spot now that Jose Reyes has been traded to the Rockies.

    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.

  • Cano walks twice, homers, but Mariners lose
    Robinson Cano had a pair of walks and a solo home run in five plate appearances, but the Mariners fell to the Diamondbacks in 10 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Cano delivered a solo home run off of Robbie Ray in the sixth inning to reduce the Mariners' deficit to one run. He's had a torrid July, homering seven times while hitting .347 (33-for-95). As a result, his triple-slash line is up to .265/.309/.416 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:46 pm
  • 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 Monday, 7:43 pm
  • Pads shopping second baseman Jedd Gyorko
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Padres are shopping Jedd Gyorko "hard."

    Advice: Gyorko is batting just .212/.279/.333 in 652 plate appearances since the beginning of the 2014 season. That's right around the time he signed a five-year, $35 million contract extension with the Padres coming off a 2013 campaign in which he tallied 23 home runs and 63 RBI. The 26-year-old second baseman probably isn't going to draw much interest on his own, but maybe the Friars can throw him into a package with one of their more attractive trade chips. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:05 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 Monday, 7:00 am

  • Altuve singles twice in extras loss to Royals
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Altuve and two-hole hitter Marwin Gonzalez combined for four of the five hits that the Astros managed in the contest. The Mighty Mouse of a second baseman scored the lone run of the game for his team, touching home plate on a Carlos Correa sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. Altuve was treading in dark waters below his typical .300+ average, but he's heated up of late and is now hitting .304/.349/.432. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:13 pm
  • Cano slugs three-run homer in M's loss
    Robinson Cano slugged a three-run homer Saturday in the Mariners' loss to the Blue Jays.

  • Miami's Derek Dietrich drawing trade interest
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Marlins infielder Derek Dietrich is drawing trade interest.

    Advice: Rosenthal notes that Miami is willing to move Dietrich if the price is right, and MLB.com's Joe Frisaro adds that the Rays appear to want him. The 26-year-old has posted an excellent .301/.378/.548 batting line in 32 games this season and would take on much more fantasy value with a move to another team -- a team that will actually give him regular starts. The asking price might be high given that he's under contractual control through 2019. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:06 pm

    Jose Altuve went 4-for-5 and hit a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth as the Astros edged the Red Sox 5-4 on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the Astros' first walkoff blast of their very surprising season. Altuve also doubled and stole a base. He raised his average to .304, which is the highest he's finished a game at since May 21. This makes two homers and four doubles in his last seven games, which is quite a power surge for him.

  • Gyorko hits fifth home run in loss to Giants
    Jedd Gyorko hit his fifth home run of the season Wednesday against the Giants.

    Advice: Gyorko finished the game 1-for-4 with the solo homer. Power was supposed to be the second baseman's calling card, but it has dwindled quickly after he mashed 23 homers in his rookie season in 2013. Gyorko is batting just .222/.284/.350 through 63 games this year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:06 pm
  • Altuve reaches four times, scores two runs
    Jose Altuve went 2-for-3 with two walks, an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: As he's done for years, Altuve served as a catalyst for the Astros offense in the win. He walked to lead off the bottom of the first inning, stole second base and scored later in the inning. He added another run and an RBI single later in the game. Altuve is now hitting .296/.342/.419 with 49 runs scored, 41 RBI and an AL-best 27 steals on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:39 pm
