  • Shane Victorino leaves with calf tightness
    Shane Victorino left Saturday's game with left calf tightness.

    Advice: Victorino tweaked his calf chasing down a fly ball in the third inning. Mookie Betts pinch-hit for him in his next at-bat. Victorino's body has really let him down the last few seasons. Including tonight, he's played just 50 of a possible 204 games since the start of 2014.

  • Beltran launches third homer in losing effort
    Carlos Beltran launched his third home run of the season in a losing effort against the Rangers on Saturday.

    Advice: His solo shot off Nick Martinez in the sixth inning did nothing more than putting a band aid on a stab wound, cutting the Bombers deficit to 13-1. Beltran has really struggled at the plate this season, slashing just .236/.268/.400 with three homers and 18 RBI.

  • Michael Morse not in Marlins lineup Saturday
    Michael Morse is once again not in the Marlins starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: At this point, it appears that the slumping slugger has been surpassed by Justin Bour as the team's starting first baseman. Morse is hitting a dreadful .213/.270/.291 with two homers, 10 RBI and a 38/8 K/BB ratio in 127 at-bats on the year.

  • Colabello goes deep as Jays fall to Mariners
    Chris Colabello blasted his third home run of the season in a losing effort against the Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: His solo shot off opposing starter James Paxton in the fourth inning pulled the Jays to within a run at 3-2, but that would be as close as they would get. He finished the afternoon 1-for-3 and also drew a walk. Colabello has provided an offensive spark since joining the Blue Jays lineup, slashing .379/.438/.591 with three long balls and 10 RBI. He's worth riding in deeper mixed leagues for as long as he remains a regular in the lineup.

  • Jordan Schafer does not need knee surgery
    Dr. James Andrews confirmed Saturday that Jordan Schafer will not require surgery on his injured right knee.

    Advice: It's good news for Schafer and for the Twins, who should have the speedy outfielder back in the fold at some point in June. In the meantime, Aaron Hicks will continue to see the bulk of playing time in center field.

  • Leonys Martin not in Rangers lineup Saturday
    Leonys Martin is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It appears as though the Rangers will continue to ride the hot hand, with Delino DeShields again starting in center field and hitting leadoff for the Rangers against opposing southpaw C.C. Sabathia. Look for Martin to return to the lineup on Sunday.

  • Athletics place Coco Crisp (neck) on DL
    Athletics placed OF Coco Crisp on the 15-day disabled list with compressed discs in his neck.

    Advice: There are no immediate plans for the off-injured outfielder to undergo surgery, but also no clear timetable for his return. At this stage, fantasy owners may be wise to cut bait and free up a roster spot.

  • Maybin swipes sixth base in loss to Brewers
    Cameron Maybin went 1-for-3 and swiped his sixth base of the season as the Braves were shut out by the Brewers on Friday.

    Advice: Maybin also drew a walk in the ballgame. He's seeing fairly regular playing time in the Braves outfield, and hit out of the second spot in the lineup on Friday, which makes him an interesting commodity in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues. With the 1-for-3 effort, Maybin is now hitting .258/.357/.423 on the year.

  • 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.

  • Colabello homers in loss to Mariners
    Chris Colabello was 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the Mariners.

    Advice: His ninth-inning blast off Fernando Rodney made things interesting, but Toronto's rally ultimately fell short. Colabello has been great since coming up from the minors earlier this month, batting .381 with two home runs, five doubles, and a .990 OPS over 17 games. Of course, he had a big start with the Twins last year before inevitably coming back down to Earth, so we wouldn't get too carried away in fantasy leagues.

  • 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.

  • Campbell 0-for-2 in loss to Pirates
    Eric Campbell went 0-for-2 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch in Friday's loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Campbell hit safely in each of his first three games after returning from the minors, but he's 0-for-14 over his past four games. David Wright (hamstring) is likely at least a week away from returning, but Mets manager Terry Collins should at least consider keeping Campbell near the bottom of the order until he does.

  • Arcia (hip) beginning rehab assignment Sunday
    Oswaldo Arcia (hip) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.

    Advice: He shouldn't need more than a few games before being activated. Arcia is still feeling some discomfort in his right hip when he throws, so he's likely slated for designated hitter duty initially upon his activation from the disabled list.

  • Coco Crisp (neck) won't have surgery
    Coco Crisp will not undergo surgery to repair his nagging neck injury.

    Advice: Crisp revealed via social media on Thursday that he received "disheartening news" about his neck after seeing a doctor, but the plan is to treat the ailment with rest and rehab. The alternative would be a potentially career-ending operation, so it's no surprise they chose the former route. The A's haven't decided yet whether to place Crisp on the disabled list.

  • Adonis Garcia optioned to Triple-A
    Braves optioned INF/OF Adonis Garcia to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Garcia had just two plate appearances while up with the big club, striking out in one and drawing a walk in the other. Ian Thomas has replaced him on the roster.

  • Jake Smolinski recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled OF Jake Smolinski from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Smolinski batted just .140/.290/.220 batting line over 62 plate appearances for the Rangers earlier this season. He'll likely be around only for the weekend, as Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is due to be activated Monday.
    Yesterday, 1:12 pm
  • Michael Morse not in lineup Friday
    Michael Morse is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

    Advice: The slumping veteran has been seeing quite a bit of time off lately. Justin Bour is at first base in Morse's place.

  • Jackie Bradley optioned to Triple-A
    Red Sox optioned OF Jackie Bradley to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Bradley has gone hitless in 11 at-bats in the majors this season. He has nothing left to prove in the minors, but the Red Sox simply have better options for their outfield at the moment.

  • Cameron Maybin scores three times
    Batting second for the first time this season, Cameron Maybin went 1-for-4 with two RBI, a walk, a steal and three runs scored against the Brewers.

    Advice: That's a pretty good day considering that his average went down (from .256 to .255). If Maybin gets to keep hitting second, he'll likely turn into a modest asset in shallow mixed leagues.

  • Coco Crisp gets bad news about neck injury
    Coco Crisp said via Snapchat on Thursday that he got "disheartening news" about his neck injury, but would not elaborate.

    Advice: The oft-injured outfielder underwent an MRI on Thursday and is scheduled to meet with a doctor in Dallas on Friday. The Athletics should provide an update on his status then, but a trip to the disabled list certainly appears to be in order.

  • Maybin hitting second Thursday
    Cameron Maybin will hit second Thursday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Maybin has been buried in the eighth spot recently, but he's worthy of the promotion. The 28-year-old is hitting a cool .320 (16-for-50) this month. He's an appealing option in daily leagues Thursday.

  • Crisp (neck) to see doctor Friday
    Coco Crisp (neck) will get an MRI on Thursday and is scheduled to see a doctor in Dallas on Friday.

    Advice: It was originally reported that he would see a specialist on Thursday, but there was a scheduling conflict. Crisp left Tuesday's game with a neck issue that is similar to the problem he dealt with in 2014. It's possible he'll need another stint on the DL.

  • Victorino (calf) scratched from lineup Thu.
    Shane Victorino was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rangers due to general soreness which Red Sox manager John Farrell says is "centralized somewhat" in his left calf.

    Advice: Farrell is hopeful that the injury is a day-to-day situation. Daniel Nava will fill in and start in right field Thursday against the Rangers.
    Thursday, 1:38 pm
  • Victorino scratched from Sox lineup Thursday
    Shane Victorino has been scratched from the Red Sox lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

    Advice: It's just a night off. Daniel Nava will get the start in right field versus Rangers lefty Wandy Rodriguez.
    Thursday, 12:21 pm
  • Crisp to visit a neck specialist on Thursday
    Coco Crisp will visit a neck specialist in the Dallas area on Thursday morning.

    Advice: Crisp was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Astros with a neck injury and did not play Wednesday. It's similar to the neck problem that bothered him in 2014. The veteran outfielder could be headed to the disabled list.

  • Coco Crisp (neck) sitting out Wednesday
    Coco Crisp (neck) is not in the Athletics' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Crisp exited Tuesday's game with a neck issue that manager Bob Melvin admitted was similar to the nagging neck ailment the outfielder battled last season. He's considered day-to-day. Craig Gentry is in left field Wednesday.

  • Crisp's neck injury similar to last year's
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that the neck injury Coco Crisp suffered Tuesday is similar to the one he dealt with last season.

    Advice: Well, that's not encouraging. Crisp never was placed on the disabled list last season, but he was limited to just 126 games in 2014 while battling the neck ailment off and on. Melvin said that the outfielder is considered day-to-day. Crisp is off to a 2-for-45 start at the plate this season.

  • Martin hits pinch-hit homer in loss to BoSox
    Leonys Martin hit a pinch-hit home run in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Batting against Red Sox closer Koji Uehara in the ninth inning, Martin led off the inning with the solo blast. He's now got two home runs on the year and has lost some playing time to Rule 5 pick Delino DeShields in recent days.
    Tuesday, 7:55 pm
  • Coco Crisp leaves game with neck tightness
    Coco Crisp left Tuesday's game against the Astros with neck tightness.

    Advice: It's unclear how serious the ailment might be, but with Crisp's history of neck issues there has to be some concern. The A's should have an update on his status after Tuesday's game concludes.

  • Oswaldo Arcia (hip) nearing rehab assignment
    Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said Tuesday that Oswaldo Arcia (hip) is close to beginning a rehab assignment.

    Advice: Arcia resumed hitting in a batting cage last Friday and evidently things have progressed nicely since then. He has noted that his hip is more of an issue when he throws, so he could be pegged for designated hitter duty at least initially when he returns from the disabled list.

  • Morse batting seventh Tuesday
    Michael Morse will bat seventh Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Justin Bour got the start at first base, but Morse is back in there against Jeremy Hellickson. However, new Marlins manager Dan Jennings clearly wants to see him get it going before he considers putting him back near the middle of the order. The 33-year-old is batting just .208 with two home runs and a .553 OPS so far this season.

  • Crisp hitless in four at-bats,has .045 AVG
    Coco Crisp went 0-for-4 with a walk in Monday's win against the Astros, lowering his batting average to .045.

    Advice: Crisp debuted on May 6 after undergoing elbow surgery in April. He's 2-for-44 with two singles and six walks. His struggles are reaching the two-week mark which may force the A's to move him more regularly towards the bottom of the lineup until he can right his ship.

  • Adonis Garcia called up by Braves
    Braves purchased the contract of INF/OF Adonis Garcia from Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Advice: Garcia, 30, earned the promotion by batting .351/.380/.455 over 34 games for Gwinnett. The Cuban defector gives the Braves versatility and will be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.

  • Beltran doubles in loss to Royals
    Carlos Beltran went 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Beltran hit his double in the ninth inning, but with the Yankees down 6-0, a comeback was not to be. The two-bagger was Beltran's 11th of the season. Every now and then, we see the ghosts of Beltrans of yore in the occasional double or rare home run, but these are just shades of the past, as Beltran is currently hitting .234/.271/.387 with a mere two homers.
    Sunday, 2:26 pm
  • Leonys Martin hitless in return to lineup
    Leonys Martin went hitless in four at-bats in his return to the lineup Saturday.

    Advice: It was his first game since he aggravated a wrist injury on Monday. Martin might not be 100 percent, but it appears he'll try to play through the ailment.
    Sunday, 5:12 am
  • Twins place Jordan Schafer (knee) on DL
    Twins placed OF Jordan Schafer on the 15-day disabled list with an MCL sprain in his right knee.

    Advice: The injury isn't believed to require surgery, but it's unclear when he will return. Aaron Hicks appears to be the most likely beneficiary, as he will remain with the team for another few weeks.

  • Mets recall Eric Campbell from Triple-A
    Mets recalled INF/OF Eric Campbell from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Campbell was with the team a couple of weeks ago, but hit just .200/.323/.320 with a homer in 50 at-bats. The 28-year-old will serve as bench depth for the Mets and won't hold any fantasy value.

  • Oswaldo Arcia (hip) hits in batting cage
    Oswaldo Arcia (hip) resumed hitting in a batting cage on Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's done any hitting since being placed on the disabled list on May 4 with right hip flexor strain. Arcia didn't feel any pain while swinging a bat, but he said his hip still bothers him a bit when he throws. There hasn't been a timetable set for his return.

  • Victorino goes 2-for-3 with a walk and a HR
    Shane Victorino finished 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer in Thursday's 2-1 win against the Mariners.

    Advice: It was his first homer of the year. Victorino had a .143/.302/.171 slash line when he was activated from the disabled list, but he's 3-for-6 with a walk, double and homer in the past two games, giving hope that the veteran can chip in against left-handers this year. The Hawaiian is 90 percent healthy, according to skipper John Farrell.
    Thursday, 10:07 pm
  • Carlos Beltran not in Yankees' lineup Thurs.
    Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees' lineup Thursday.

    Advice: Chris Young will start in right field as the Yankees wrap up a series at Tropicana Field. It's just a day of rest for the veteran Beltran, who's batting .221/.264/.372 with two home runs and 15 RBI in 30 games this year.
    Thursday, 12:51 pm
  • Leonys Martin (wrist) sitting again Thursday
    Leonys Martin (wrist) is out again Thursday.

    Advice: Rangers manager Jeff Banister acknowledged Wednesday night that Martin is going to be sidelined for several games after reaggravating his left wrist sprain on Monday. The center fielder was given a cortisone shot on Wednesday afternoon. Delino DeShields Jr. is playing center and hitting ninth for the Rangers in Thursday's matinee game against the Royals.
    Thursday, 8:04 am
  • Martin (wrist) likely to be out several days
    Leonys Martin (wrist) is likely to be sidelined for several days.

    Advice: "We’re going to let him work that soreness out," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. "Let’s see if we can’t clean him up and have him ready to go in a couple of days." Martin missed his second consecutive start Wednesday as a result of the injury, which he aggravated Monday. It sounds like he won't need a DL stint despite missing a few days of action.
    Wednesday, 7:00 pm
  • Rangers option Jake Smolinski to Triple-A
    Rangers optioned OF Jake Smolinski to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Smolinski posted a brutal .140/.290/.220 batting line over 62 plate appearances in his six-week stay with the big club. Mitch Moreland has been activated from the disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
