  • Revere collects 4 hits in win vs. the Dodgers
    Ben Revere went 4-for-5 with a run scored and a steal in a 10-inning win versus the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: All four hits were singles, which is par for the course with Revere. The speedy but punchless outfielder is now slashing .300/.319/.329 through 18 games, a pinch above his career averages. Revere has never hit an MLB homer, but he's sixth in the NL with six steals after swiping 96 the past three seasons.

  • Dee Gordon cleared of possible concussion
    Dee Gordon was cleared of a possible concussion after Tuesday's game.

    Advice: Gordon left the contest after hitting his head on the Phillies' Jayson Nix's knee when he slid into third base on steal in the seventh inning. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that the second baseman looked a little "dazed" but passed the necessary tests. Still, it wouldn't be a surprise if the club gave him a day.

  • SP Ryu allows 2 runs in no-decision vs. Phils
    Hyun-Jin Ryu surrendered two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Tuesday.

    Advice: The South Korean southpaw struck out three, walked two, and allowed nine hits. Believe it or not, but this was only his second start out of six where he'd allowed so much as one earned run. Ryu owns a spectacular 2.12 ERA and 1.15 WHIP through 34 innings despite having coughed up eight runs (six earned) in just two innings against the Giants on April 4. He'll play host to the Rockies on Sunday.

  • Matt Albers nursing shoulder tightness
    Matt Albers wasn't available Tuesday and might not be Wednesday, either, due to right shoulder tightness.

    Advice: Albers isn't concerned, though, so he can probably safely be considered day-to-day. Josh Fields nailed down the save for the Astros on Tuesday with a 1-2-3 inning.

  • Castro goes 2-for-4 with a 2-run homer in win
    Jason Castro went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run homer, and two runs scored in Tuesday's triumph over the Mariners.

    Advice: Castro's two-run first-inning shot off Erasmo Ramirez gifted Houston a lead that Collin McHugh protected without drama. Castro entered this game batting .193, but he's been taking walks and hitting for some power, so tonight didn't come out of the blue. The 26-year-old backstop is now slashing .213/.329/.459 with four homers (ninth in AL) and nine RBI.

  • Mc-Who?: Recent callup dominant with 12 Ks
    Collin McHugh dazzled in his return to the majors, striking out 12 over 6 2/3 shutout frames in Tuesday's 5-2 victory against the Mariners.

    Advice: Where did this come from? McHugh, a December waiver claim from Colorado who couldn't crack Houston's Quad-A pitching corps until this very night due to Scott Feldman's injury, made Seattle look downright silly, declining to issue a free pass and scattering just three hits. The 26-year-old McHugh entered this game with a 8.94 ERA over nine starts and six relief appearances in the majors. And you wonder why we love baseball? McHugh's encore will come Sunday in Houston against the A's. We don't believe in Santa Claus, so buy in at your own risk.

  • Gregerson blows save; closer gig finished?
    Luke Gregerson allowed two runs on three hits to blow his third save in Tuesday's 5-4 setback against the Rangers.

    Advice: It could have been worse. Pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland blasted a double to lead off the ninth. Skipper Ron Washington had Robinson Chirinos lay down a bunt to get Moreland to third, and he called a risky suicide squeeze with Leonys Martin up. Martin's bunt came right back to Gregerson, who made a nifty shuffle to Derek Norris to nail Moreland, who may or may not have missed a sign. With two outs, Gregerson hung a pitch that Josh Wilson hammered for a game-tying double, and then Michael Choice singled him in. Gregerson is 3-for-6 in save conversions, and has punted two of his last three, so you have to wonder if Jim Johnson will enter the ninth inning the next time Oakland has a save opportunity.

  • Milone allows 3 runs in ND against Rangers
    Tommy Milone wasn't sharp in a no-decision against the Rangers on Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Milone wasn't fooling Rangers' batters, walking four and striking out just one. He owns a decent 4.24 ERA through three outings, but Milone has been fortunate to evade serious danger on multiple occasions, as his 1.53 WHIP and 9/6 K/BB ratio through 17 frames attest. The southpaw will take those numbers into an outing against the Astros and Tuesday darling Collin McHugh on Sunday.
    Yesterday, 10:18 pm
  • Martinez allows 4 runs (2 ER) in spot start
    Nick Martinez relinquished four runs -- two earned -- over five frames of a no-decision against the A's on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was the 23-year-old right-hander's second major league start, and he's expected to head right back to Triple-A Round Rock with Matt Harrison (back) coming back from the DL. Martinez's first start (three earned runs over six innings in a loss to the Rays), which came earlier this month, was also a one-day excursion to the majors. Expect him to ride the Round Rock-to-Arlington shuttle all season as needed for injury insurance.
    Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Dee Gordon exits with possible head injury
    Dee Gordon left Tuesday's game against the Phillies with a possible head injury.

    Advice: Gordon appeared to bang his head on the Phillies' Jayson Nix's knee when he slid into third base on steal in the seventh inning. He initially stayed in and scored on a Justin Turner RBI single but didn't take his position in the eighth. The Dodgers will surely put him through concussion tests before an update on his status is available.

  • Headley's homer gives Padres extra-inning win
    Chase Headley's 12th inning home run helped lead the Padres to a 2-1 win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

    Advice: The third baseman finished the game 2-for-4 with a walk. Facing Alfredo Figaro in extra innings, Headley deposited a pitch well over the right-center field wall to give his club the lead and, eventually, the win. Despite the heroics, it was just Headley's second home run of the year, and he has only seven RBI through 18 games.
    Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Gennett hits first home run in loss to Padres
    Scooter Gennett went 2-for-5 with his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: The second baseman accounted for all of the Brewers' runs in the game with his solo shot. Gennett also stole his second base of the year in the contest. After winning the starting second base job out of spring, Gennett is showing why with a .322/.355/.458 line through 20 games.
    Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Gallardo goes seven strong in no-decision
    Yovani Gallardo allowed just one run over seven innings but had to settle for a no-decision against the Padres on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was more of the same for Gallardo, who's been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the first month of play. He surrendered just five hits and two walks while striking out four, exiting after 93 pitches. The start leaves him with a 1.42 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in five starts. He'll next take the hill against the Cardinals on Monday.
    Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Kennedy limits Brewers to one run Tuesday
    Ian Kennedy limited the Brewers to one run on four hits over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

    Advice: The right-hander allowed four hits and three walks, with the only Brewers run coming on a Scooter Gennett home run. He also struck out five in the outing. He didn't get the win for his efforts, as Yovani Gallardo matched him pitch for pitch, but the start did manage to lower his ERA to 3.60 through five starts. His next will come Sunday at the Nationals.
    Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Nick Martinez recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled RHP Nick Martinez from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Martinez will start on Tuesday in Oakland in place of the injured Tanner Scheppers (elbow). The young righty allowed three runs over six frames against the Rays in his major league debut earlier this month. He's expected to make just the one start with Matt Harrison (back) coming back from the DL.
    Yesterday, 5:46 pm
  • Astros call up McHugh from Triple-A
    Astros recalled RHP Collin McHugh from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

    Advice: McHugh will replace the injury Scott Feldman (biceps) in the rotation and will start Tuesday night against the Mariners. The 26-year-old owns an 8.94 ERA over nine starts and six relief appearances in the majors and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
    Yesterday, 10:37 am
  • Mercer (ankle) strikes out as pinch-hitter
    Jordy Mercer (ankle) struck out as a pinch-hitter Monday against the Reds.

    Advice: Mercer left Friday's game after being spiked in the ankle and has been limited to pinch-hitting duties ever since. Consider him day-to-day for now.
    Yesterday, 1:37 am

  • Collin McHugh to start on Tuesday
    Collin McHugh will start on Tuesday in Seattle.

    Advice: He'll be taking the rotation spot of the injured Scott Feldman (biceps). McHugh's high pitch count at Triple-A Oklahoma City this season has been 73, so the Astros bullpen will certainly get some work Tuesday. The 26-year-old should be avoided in fantasy leagues.
    Monday, 8:33 pm
  • Khris Davis out with stomach bug
    Khris Davis was a late scratch from Monday's lineup due to a stomach bug.

    Advice: It's been going around the Brewers' clubhouse. Elian Herrera is starting in left field Monday in Davis' place. Davis should be OK in a day or two.
    Monday, 4:56 pm
    5:10 pm vs   SD
  • Ben Revere not in Phillies' lineup
    Ben Revere is not in the Phillies' lineup Monday.

    Advice: He had started six straight after a three-game streak where Tony Gwynn Jr. was in center field, but Gwynn is back in there tonight. Revere is batting just .262/.284/.292 with five steals this season.

  • Gregerson picks up third save against Astros
    Luke Gregerson earned his third save of the season in Sunday's win over the Astros.

    Advice: Gregerson threw a scoreless ninth inning, striking out one, for the save. He's got a 1.69 ERA and 0.75 WHIP through 10 2/3 innings and although A's manager Bob Melvin has committed to a closer-by-committee, Gregerson has the kind of stuff to be an effective closer. For now, though, he simply remains a player to watch until the situation in Oakland becomes clearer.
    Sunday, 5:06 pm
  • Davis homers to give Brewers 14-inning win
    Khris Davis' 14th-inning home run gave the Brewers a 3-2 win over the Pirates on Sunday.

    Advice: Davis had three hits on the day, but none were bigger than his solo shot off Jeanmar Gomez. The home run was Davis' first of the season after smacking 11 in 136 at-bats last season, but his power is undoubted.

  • Jordy Mercer (ankle) out of lineup again
    Jordy Mercer (ankle) is out of the lineup again Sunday.

    Advice: Mercer was removed from Friday's game after getting spiked in the ankle. He was able to pinch-hit in Saturday's game but said that the area is still "tender." He'll test things out with some lateral movements Sunday before possibly returning to action Monday. Clint Barmes is at shortstop again Sunday.

  • Jordy Mercer flies out as a pinch-hitter
    Jordy Mercer flew out as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Mercer was removed from Friday's game after getting spiked in the ankle while trying to turn a double play. He seems likely to be back in the lineup Sunday.

  • Headley (biceps) back in Padres' lineup Sat.
    Chase Headley is back in the Padres' starting lineup on Saturday night against the Giants.

    Advice: Headley has been limited to pinch-hitting duties for much of this week because of a mild right biceps strain. He is batting fifth and playing third base Saturday.
    Saturday, 2:17 pm
  • Jordy Mercer (ankle) could be available Sat.
    Jordy Mercer (ankle) may be available off the bench Saturday night against the Brewers.

    Advice: Mercer was removed from Friday's game after getting spiked in the ankle while trying to turn a doubleplay in the fourth inning. He did not suffer a major injury.

  • Jason Castro not in Astros lineup on Saturday
    Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

    Advice: It appears to be just a routine day of rest for the young backstop after a night game on Friday. Carlos Corporan will get the call behind the dish and hit eighth against opposing southpaw Scott Kazmir.
    Saturday, 9:53 am
  • Jordy Mercer leaves early with ankle injury
    Jordy Mercer was removed from Friday's game against the Brewers in the fourth inning due to an ankle injury.

    Advice: Mercer sustained the injury earlier in the game when he was spiked while trying to turn a double play at second base. No word yet on the extent of the injury or how much time he may miss. Clint Barmes replaced him at shortstop.
    Friday, 5:06 pm

  • Nick Martinez to start on Tuesday
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Friday that Nick Martinez is likely to be recalled to start on Tuesday in place of the injured Tanner Scheppers (elbow).

    Advice: Martinez held his own in his major league debut earlier this month, allowing three runs over six frames against the Rays. He could be needed for more than one start, depending on when the Rangers bring Matt Harrison (back) back from the DL.
    Friday, 1:23 pm
  • Chase Headley picks up pinch-hit single
    Chase Headley delivered a pinch-hit single in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: Headley has missed two straight starts with a right biceps strain, but him being able to pinch-hit is a good sign that he'll be back in the lineup soon. The third baseman is batting just .176/.222/.275 in the early going.
