  • Peterson's walkoff RBI guides Braves over MIL
    Jace Peterson hit a walkoff RBI single Saturday in the Braves' 3-2 extra-innings win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Peterson smacked a leadoff single in the bottom of the first inning but was caught trying to steal second base. His next hit of the game -- five at-bats later -- was a single to left-center field that scored Alberto Callaspo from third base in the bottom of the 11th inning. Peterson, 25, is batting .264/.336/.318 with four steals and 14 runs in 39 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Dustin Pedroia batting leadoff for Sox
    Dustin Pedroia will bat leadoff Saturday against the Angels.

    Advice: Pedroia hasn't batted leadoff since last season. His lifetime average in the leadoff spot is .264, much lower than his .303 clip hitting elsewhere. Mookie Betts typically hits leadoff for the Sox, but he's getting the day off. Rotoworld.com

  • Mookie Betts not in Red Sox lineup Saturday
    Mookie Betts is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Rusney Castillo is getting the start in center field, with Shane Victorino back in there in right field against opposing southpaw C.J. Wilson. Betts has fallen on hard times after a strong start to the season and is hitting just .232/.290/.387 with five homers and 22 RBI in 41 games on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • Bloomquist delivers two-run double in victory
    Willie Bloomquist delivered a two-run double on Saturday, leading the Mariners to a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Score one for the batter vs. pitcher DFS crowd, as Bloomquist entered the day 20-for-44 (.455) with seven extra-base hits lifetime against Mark Buehrle. His two-run double in the third inning increased the M's advantage to 3-1 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon, and he's now hitting .184/.205/.211 with three RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben Zobrist expected to rejoin A's on Monday
    Ben Zobrist (knee) is expected to be activated from the disabled list and rejoin the Athletics on Monday.

    Advice: He has been sidelined since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on April 28, and has made very quick work of his recovery which was initially expected to extend into mid-June. Before hitting the disabled list, Zobrist was hitting .240/.304/.400 with a homer and eight RBI in his first 14 games with the A's. 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

  • D.J. LeMahieu hits second homer
    D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: LeMahieu is bating .326, but between his placement at the bottom of the Rockies order and his poor baserunning, he's scored just 13 runs. Fortunately, he's driven in 20, which has resulted in some surprising early-season fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Rays option Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham
    Rays optioned INF Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: The 25-year-old infielder went 2-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season on Friday, but became a roster casualty as the Rays needed a fresh arm in the bullpen. While he has shown flashes, he's hitting just .224/.266/.459 on the year and could benefit from everyday at-bats at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Rosario goes 0-for-2
    Eddie Rosario struck out twice and was credited with a sac bunt during Friday's game against the White Sox.

    Advice: Since homering in his first major league at-bat, Rosario is 7-for-35 with one extra-base hit (a double) and a 15/1 K/BB ratio. But given his lousy Triple-A numbers, that shouldn't really come as any surprise. Instead of keeping him around as a backup, the Twins will probably return him to Triple-A soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Gregorius launches three-run homer in loss
    Didi Gregorius launched a three-run homer on Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Yankees to overcome the Rangers.

    Advice: His three-run shot, his first of the season, came off Rangers starter Colby Lewis in the fourth inning, cutting the Rangers lead to 7-4 at the time. He has been a major disappointment at the dish early in the season, slashing a mere .217/.278/.278 with 10 RBI. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Another huge night for Kipnis. He's now hitting .463 this month, with 12 multi-hit games. After finishing April with a .218 batting average, he now sits among the league leaders with a .337 batting average. Rotoworld.com

  • Odubel Herrera plates lone run in loss Friday
    Odubel Herrera went 1-for-3 and plated the Phillies lone run in Friday's loss to Max Scherzer and the Nationals.

    Advice: His run-scoring double in the second inning plated Maikel Franco and gave the Phillies an early 1-0 lead, but that would be the extent of their offense on the evening. Herrera also drew a walk in the ballgame and is now slashing .263/.300/.375 with 14 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis (shoulder) expected back when eligible
    Devon Travis (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on June 1 when first eligible.

    Advice: Travis was placed on the DL on Thursday after battling a left shoulder injury for a few days. It's a minor ailment, though, as he's been given a cortisone shot and should resume full workouts before long. The rookie had been scuffling at the dish of late before the DL move, batting just .162/.205/.243 over his previous 10 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Russell smacks a homer in win over Padres
    Addison Russell went 2-for-4 with a solo homer on Thursday in a win against the Padres.

    Advice: The seventh inning blast off Dale Thayer provided an insurance run in the 3-0 triumph. Slowly but surely, Russell is getting up to speed. The 21-year-old rookie slashed .179/.207/.286 in 28 April at-bats (14/1 K/BB rate) after his promotion, but now boasts a May OPS over .800. He has drawn four walks in the past six games after taking only three in his first 21. Rotoworld.com

  • Blue Jays place Devon Travis (shoulder) on DL
    Blue Jays placed INF Devon Travis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 17, with left shoulder inflammation.

    Advice: The Blue Jays had been playing it day-by-day with Travis who is dealing with a sore shoulder where he was hit by a line drive and then agitated with a swing during Saturday's game. His stay on the disabled list should be minimal, so expect him to rejoin the Jays lineup in early June. Rotoworld.com

  • Cano finishes with two singles in loss to BAL
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and a walk in Thursday's loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Cano was also caught stealing for the third time this season. The singles are nice to see, as his numbers are down across the board. If the season finished today, his .264/.305/.356 batting line would be the worst for his career. Thankfully for Cano and the Mariners, the season does not finish on May 21. Given that he hit .314/.382/.454 in 2014, this likely isn't a Safeco problem. Cano's merely in a bit of a rut. His numbers will right themselves over time. Rotoworld.com

  • Pearce wallops grand slam off Happ in first
    Steven Pearce hit a grand slam in the first inning of Thursday's 5-4 win over Mariners.

    Advice: Pearce hit the four-bagger off of J.A. Happ with two outs in the first inning. It was Pearce's fourth homer of the season and pushed his RBI count to 15. While he does have a little sneaky pop in his bat, it's not enough to overcome a .198/.275/.341 batting line. Continue to disregard him for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com

    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Thursday that the team still expects Devon Travis (shoulder) to avoid the disabled list.

    Advice: Travis is out of the lineup for the fifth straight game Thursday due to soreness in his left shoulder/collarbone. The Blue Jays could always backdate him on the disabled list as long as they keep him out of the lineup, but they don't think it will be necessary. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Rendon hit and took grounders on Wednesday
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) hit in a cage and took some grounders with the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rendon was placed on the disabled list before Opening Day with a sprained MCL in his left knee and he suffered a strained oblique in early May while rehabbing that knee injury. The Nationals will continue to take it slowly with the 24-year-old third baseman. He's eventually going to need a minor league rehab assignment and remains highly doubtful to debut before the end of May. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Kipnis tripled in the game, his third triple of the year. The second baseman has enjoyed a blazing hot May that has helped him raise his overall line to .338/.404/.510. He's currently fourth in the American League in batting average and sixth in the AL with 27 runs scored. Rotoworld.com

    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.

    Jason Kipnis went 3-for-6 with a go-ahead two-run homer in the ninth inning of Saturday's 10-8 win over the Rangers.

    Advice: The Indians entered the ninth inning down 8-7, but managed a big rally. After Jose Ramirez hit into a fielder's choice to tie the game at 8-8, Kipnis launched a two-run homer off of Neftali Feliz, who now has three blown saves on the season. The dramatic homer was just the continuation of a great season by Kipnis, who is hitting a stellar .340/.400/.510 with four homers, 17 RBI, 24 runs scored and five steals. Rotoworld.com
