    Advice: Joseph has 10 hits -- including three homers -- through his first 35 at-bats at the major league level. "We brought Joseph up here for a reason, to get a look at him," Mackanin said.

    Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week.

    Advice: Marte was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 22 with a sprained left thumb. He expects to be activated when first eligible and would seem to be on track to meet that goal. "He’s swinging the bat," Mariners skipper Scott Servais said Sunday. "I think he’s going to hit in the cage with the actual BP thrower (early this week). ... That’ll kind of be the last test. If he gets through that, he’ll be ready to go out on the rehab after." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:29 am

  • Flores (hamstring) goes 0-for-3 in return
    Wilmer Flores (hamstring) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in his return from the disabled list Sunday.

    Advice: Flores started at third base in this one. He's also expected to see significant playing time at first base while Lucas Duda recovers from a serious back injury. Flores has some power (16 homers last year) and is worthy of attention in deeper mixed fantasy leagues while he is receiving regular at-bats for the Mets. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:44 am

  • Austin Jackson leaves Sunday due to turf toe
    Austin Jackson was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Royals due to turf toe.

    Advice: As the White Sox bullpen was imploding once again on Sunday, Jackson pulled himself from the game due to the issue. While it doesn't sound like anything that will require a trip to the disabled list, he could be held out of the lineup for a day or two. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:39 pm

  • David Wright (neck) not in lineup on Sunday
    David Wright (neck) is not in the Mets starting lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: Manager Terry Collins made it sound as though Wright wouldn't be available on Monday as well. Wilmer Flores is starting in his place on Sunday and will continue to fill in while Wright is sidelined. Collins also made it clear that this neck issue is not related to the back injury that Wright has been battling, but could be connected to his sore shoulder. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:26 pm

  • Ryan Braun dealing with neck stiffness
    Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup for the second straight day Sunday due to neck stiffness/soreness.

    Advice: Add another injury to the list. Braun has also battled back and wrist injuries this season and has played just six out of the last 14 games. He's been outstanding when healthy, batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs. Braun's name keeps popping up in trade rumors, but his inability to stay on the field could hurt his market.

  • Ryan Braun (back) sitting out again Sunday
    Ryan Braun (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's missed two straight games and eight out of the last 14 contests with a variety of ailments. His back has been the most recent reason for his absence, so that's presumably why he's sitting again Sunday. Braun has been a beast this season when healthy, hitting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs, but he's had some trouble staying on the field. Alex Presley is in left field Sunday.

  • Braun is 'hot name out there' on trade market
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe was told by a National League scout that Ryan Braun is "the hot name out there" on the trade market.

    Advice: Braun is in the first year of a five-year, $105 million extension, but that no longer looks a deal-killer given that he's batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs this season. The scout told Cafardo that he thought the Astros, Cardinals, Red Sox, Phillies, Mets, Giants, and White Sox were potential landing spots for Braun. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:10 am

  • Wright's neck injury causing Mets concern
    David Wright (neck) is out of the Mets' lineup on Saturday, as the Mets have "a little concern" about the injury.

    Advice: Not much information is known about the neck injury and Ty Kelly will get the start in his place. With any bump or bruise with Wright, it's an immediate concern that it will become a nagging issue or that he will eventually land on the DL. The 33-year-old is only hitting .226/.350/.438 with seven home runs in 164 plate appearances this year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:33 pm

  • Ryan Braun not in Brewers lineup on Saturday
    Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

    Advice: Braun has battled a variety of ailments already this season, so giving him a breather to keep him fresh isn't a terrible idea, especially after he looked especially spry on Friday night with a pair of stolen bases. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he misses a juicy matchup against Alfredo Simon. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:09 am

  • Tommy Joseph not in Phillies lineup Saturday
    Tommy Joseph is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: He's inexplicably on the pine while the slumping Ryan Howard starts at first base and hits cleanup. Joseph is hitting .290/.294/.516 with two homers and four RBI in his first 31 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:40 am
  • Michael Conforto won't play first base
    The Mets have scrapped the idea of trying Michael Conforto out at first base.

    Advice: They kicked the idea around with Lucas Duda (back) slated to miss significant time but have ultimately decided against it. "Right now Michael has a lot on his plate and I don't need to add more to it," manager Terry Collins said. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:16 pm
  • Flores (hamstring) won't be activated Friday
    Wilmer Flores (hamstring) will not be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

    Advice: The Mets have decided to extend Flores' rehab assignment a bit longer, but he could still conceivably return sometime over the weekend. Flores is slated to take over at first base for the Mets with Lucas Duda (back) on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:08 am

  • Gallardo (shoulder) to throw simulated game
    Yovani Gallardo (shoulder) will throw a simulated game on Saturday.

    Advice: Gallardo was cleared to face hitters after getting through a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday with no issues. It's possible he'll be cleared to begin a rehab assignment after the simulated game, although that hasn't been decided yet. "We’re hoping that [simulated game Saturday] goes well, and if that goes well, we’ve got to decide whether he needs to do that one more time or he goes out [for a rehab stint]," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

  • Braun connects for ninth homer against Braves
    Ryan Braun hit his ninth home run of the year in Thursday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Braun belted a solo shot off Braves starter Matt Wisler in the fifth inning. He continues to produce when on the field, owning a .361/.427/.599 line with 30 RBI and 23 runs scored in 39 games. Staying between the white lines has been the tricky part, but his back seems to be feeling better and he should be ridden hard by fantasy owners while in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:07 pm

    Ryan Braun left Thursday's game against the Braves for precautionary reasons.

    Advice: He never came back after a one-hour, 19-minute rain delay in the seventh inning. It doesn't look like Braun is injured but after missing time with back and wrist injuries earlier this month, the Brewers weren't taking any chances. Braun went 1-for-3 with a solo home run before exiting. Kirk Nieuwenhuis replaced him in left field. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:03 pm

    Advice: Ramirez got struck on the right foot by a Jorge De La Rosa pitch in the bottom of the fourth inning and was replaced at first base in the top of the fifth by Travis Shaw.

    Advice: Ramirez came up hobbling after a hit by pitch and was replaced at first base in the fifth inning by Travis Shaw, who had been held out of the starting lineup with a sore left hand.

  • Flores (hamstring) goes 2-for-3 on rehab
    Wilmer Flores (hamstring) went 2-for-3 in his rehab debut Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

  • Tommy Joseph homers in Phillies' loss
    Tommy Joseph doubled and ripped a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Joseph's dinger in the sixth inning tied the game before the Tigers went back ahead for good the next inning. Ryan Howard went 0-for-4 with a couple strikeouts in the same game, and you've got to wonder how long it will be before the Phillies give Joseph a shot as their everyday first baseman.

    Michael Conforto went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Conforto jumped on a Chase Anderson offering for a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning. The tater was his eighth of the season and boosted his RBI total to 24. He has homered in two of his last three games and is slashing .284/.358/.553 across 141 at-bats. After impressing in relatively limited action as a rookie last season, he is coming into his own as a fine young outfielder. Rotoworld.com May 22, 1:30 pm

    Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to be ready for activation from the disabled list when his 15 days are up.

"Everything indicates that it shouldn’t be anything longer than 15 days with Marte," Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "It’s not as bad as originally thought."

  • Posey punishes Lester with two-run homer
    Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Posey boosted the Giants to a 4-1 lead with his third-inning homer against Cubs starter Jon Lester. They would tack on one more run in the frame to take a 5-1 lead. Two late runs by the Cubs were not enough to topple that deficit. For the season, Posey is hitting .274/.327/.438 with nine doubles, five homers and 17 RBI over 146 at-bats.

    Ketel Marte's X-rays came back negative.

    Advice: He sprained his thumb sliding into second Saturday against the Reds. Marte is hoping to return in a few days, though the club doesn't sound as optimistic. Triple-A shortstop Chris Taylor is on his way to Cincinnati, which could be a sign that Marte is headed to the disabled list. If Marte does land on the DL, it won't be a long stay.

    Ketel Marte went 1-for-3 with two stolen bases in Saturday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Marte singled to lead off the fifth inning before stealing second and eventually third base off the battery of John Lamb and Tucker Barnhart. The stolen bases were his fourth and fifth of the season after he stole eight in 57 games with the club last season. The speedy shortstop actually left the game with a sprained left thumb following the stolen bases, so it remains to be seen how long he might be out with the injury. Rotoworld.com May 21, 4:10 pm

  • Ryan Braun hopes to return to lineup Sunday
    Ryan Braun (back) was able to take batting practice without issue on Saturday and hopes to return to the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Mets.

    Advice: The outfielder, who hasn't played since Tuesday, indicated Saturday that he was finally feeling much better. When he has been on the field, he has been a force this season, slashing .364/.429/.576 with seven homers, 28 RBI and two stolen bases. Unfortunately, back injuries can tend to linger and could be a recurring issue throughout the season. Rotoworld.com May 21, 11:57 am

  • Austin Jackson plates lone run in loss Friday
    Austin Jackson came through with a sacrifice fly in the second inning on Friday which wound up being his club's only offense in a loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Jackson also singled, finishing the night 1-for-2. As a team, they were only able to muster six total hits, all singles, against Dillon Gee and company. Jackson has had a rough go of it at the plate this season, hitting just .223/.288/.309 with no home runs and 14 RBI. Rotoworld.com May 20, 8:56 pm

  • Conforto launches go-ahead blast vs. Brewers
    Michael Conforto went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead two-run homer in a 3-2 win over the Brewers on Friday.

    Advice: The Mets were down 2-1 before Conforto launched an opposite-field blast off Wily Peralta in the bottom of the sixth inning. It was his seventh home run of the season. The 23-year-old entered Friday’s action with a .158 batting average this month, but perhaps this will get him going again. Rotoworld.com May 20, 6:58 pm

    David Wright is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Wright played the last two days after missing two games with renewed discomfort in his back. Manager Terry Collins said that the third baseman is just getting a night off in this one, though. Eric Campbell is at third base. Rotoworld.com May 20, 12:15 pm
