  • Ketel Marte (thumb) nearing rehab games
    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." Today, 6:29 am
    15-Day DL

  • 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. Today, 5:44 am

  • Span (hip) goes 3-for-5 in return Sunday
    Denard Span (hip) went 3-for-5 with a homer in his return to the Giants' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: That bruised right hip apparently wasn't too bad. Span is now slashing .268/.358/.363 with two home runs, 19 RBI, and 22 runs scored through 49 games this season. Today, 5:38 am
  • Teixeira (neck) lines out versus Rays
    Mark Teixeira (neck) was retired in his one at-bat in Sunday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Teixeira has been held out of the Yankees' starting lineup since last Wednesday with renewed discomfort in his neck, but he was able to take batting practice ahead of Sunday's game and entered at first base in the seventh inning before lining out in the eighth. He might be ready to return to full-time duty on Monday. The veteran first baseman is batting .193/.292/.280 in 43 games this season. Today, 5:35 am

  • Dietrich hit in head by liner in dugout
    X-rays came back negative after Derek Dietrich was hit in the back of the head by a line drive which ricocheted off a wall in the dugout during Sunday's game against the Braves.

    Advice: Dietrich went 3-for-3 with a home run, a walk, and a career-high four RBI before being hit by the liner in the ninth inning. He was on the ground for several minutes before eventually walking to the clubhouse, but never lost consciousness. He was expected to remain in Atlanta overnight for evaluation. The Marlins should have more information on his status on Monday. Yesterday, 9:26 pm
    4:10 pm vs Pit
  • Inciarte swipes third base in loss Sunday
    Ender Inciarte swiped his third base of the season in a losing effort against the Marlins on Sunday.

    Advice: Inciarte finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and also scored a run. He has struggled to get things going offensively since his return from the disabled list, slashing just .239/.323/.273 with no homers and two RBI. Yesterday, 6:41 pm
  • Yunel Escobar day-to-day with bruised wrist
    Yunel Escobar is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a bruised right wrist.

    Advice: Escobar was lifted from Sunday's game against the Astros after injuring his wrist while diving for a ball. Angels fans and fantasy owners alike can breathe a sigh of relief though the it's nothing serious and Escobar should return to the Angels lineup in a day or two. Yesterday, 2:13 pm
    6:05 pm vs Det
  • Brandon Moss rocks solo homer in loss
    Brandon Moss went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Moss worked over a Stephen Strasburg pitch for a solo home run in the fourth inning. At the time, it gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead. The Nationals would score three times in the bottom of the frame to take the advantage, one which they wouldn't relinquish on their way to a 10-2 win. For the season, Moss is slashing .222/.322/.484 with nine homers and 24 RBI across 126 at-bats. He makes for a nice fantasy power option, but that comes with a decided deficit in terms of average. Yesterday, 2:13 pm
  • Michael Wacha surrenders three to Nationals
    Michael Wacha turned in a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Nationals, surrendering three runs on four hits over six innings.

    Advice: The Nationals scored their runs off Wacha courtesy of an RBI single by Bryce Harper and a two-run single by Anthony Rendon in the fourth inning. This was by no means a magnificent outing by Wacha, but it was at least a slight step forward from his recent work. The 24-year-old right-hander entered Sunday's game having allowed 18 runs over his last three starts (15 innings). He will look to continue to improve by degrees in a home start against the Giants next time he takes the mound. Yesterday, 2:01 pm
  • Yunel Escobar leaves game with wrist injury
    Yunel Escobar was removed from Sunday's game against the Astros with an apparent wrist injury.

    Advice: Escobar sustained the injury diving for a ground ball. The Angels have been decimated by injuries throughout the season, and it would be another big blow if they lose their leadoff hitter for any significant amount of time. Expect an update on his status shortly. Yesterday, 1:16 pm
    6:05 pm vs Det
  • Carlos Gomez (ribs) to be activated Tuesday
    Carlos Gomez (ribs) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.

    Advice: Gomez will play his fifth and likely final rehab game on Sunday. He's 5-for-17 with one homer in his first four contests as he works his way back from a bruised left rib cage. "I think he's feeling a lot better, which is the number one priority," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of Gomez. "Getting production out of him is the second phase of this." Yesterday, 12:35 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Kurt Suzuki (head) sitting out Sunday
    Kurt Suzuki (head) is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Suzuki left Saturday's game after taking a foul ball to the face mask. He's feeling better Sunday but will sit out as a precaution. Juan Centeno is behind the plate. Yesterday, 11:08 am
    1:05 pm @Oak
  • Jimenez's rotation spot on shaky ground?
    Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that Ubaldo Jimenez is the "projected" starter for the club on Thursday.

    Advice: While Jimenez is currently penciled in to start, it sounds like it's not a guarantee that he'll take the ball that day. It's not a surprise that it appears the O's are considering a change, as the righty lasted just 1 2/3 innings Saturday and now holds a 6.36 ERA. Yesterday, 9:28 am
  • Mark Teixeira (neck) taking batting practice
    Mark Teixeira (neck) will take batting practice Sunday.

    Advice: If it goes well, he could be back in the lineup Monday. Teixeira hasn't played since Tuesday due to neck injury that's bothered him throughout May. Yesterday, 8:37 am
    4:07 pm @Tor
  • Lincecum's Angels debut slated for June 12
    Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports that Tim Lincecum is expected to make his debut with the Angels on June 12.

    Advice: Lincecum threw approximately 75 pitches in an extended spring training game on Saturday and his next appearance will be with Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. He'll make one additional start for Salt Lake on June 7 before joining the Halos' rotation. "Everything felt pretty good," Lincecum said of his appearance in extended spring. "What I asked for and what the Angels are giving me is just time to move along at my own pace and figure out things that I need to." Yesterday, 7:40 am

  • Workman (elbow) pitching in extended spring
    Brandon Workman (elbow) has been making appearances in extended spring training games.

    Advice: Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Workman will remain in extended spring until short-season Lowell opens their season on June 17. He could be an option for the Red Sox' bullpen at some point in the second half. Yesterday, 6:32 am
    60-Day DL
    10:35 am @Bal
  • Hughes roughed up a bit in win
    Phil Hughes gave up four earned runs on nine hits and three walks in just 4 2/3 innings in Saturday’s win over the Mariners.

    Advice: It could’ve been worse. The Mariners had the bases loaded four different times against Hughes, but hitters went 0-for-4 with a double play in those situations. That helped the right-hander limit the damage, despite the 12 baserunners. He now has a 5.74 ERA with only 30 strikeouts in 53 1/3 innings and will next get the Rays at home. Saturday, 10:41 pm
  • Suzuki removed after potential concussion
    Kurt Suzuki left Saturday's game against the Mariners after getting a foul ball to the face mask.

    Advice: The Twins are likely concerned that Suzuki suffered a concussion, but further information should come after the game. Juan Centano replaced the 32-year-old catcher, who was hitting .200/.257/.284 in 106 plate appearances. Saturday, 8:36 pm
    1:05 pm @Oak
  • Jimenez battered again, this time by Indians
    Ubaldo Jimenez gave up six runs for the third straight start -- although just three were earned -- in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

    Advice: A fielding error in the first inning made three of the Indians' four runs unearned, but it's not as though Jimenez was much better. The right-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and walking three before exiting. He's now 2-6 with a 6.36 ERA for a team with aspirations of winning the AL East. It's hard to imagine they'll continue running him out there much longer when he's pitching like this, but his next scheduled start, until further notice, is set for Thursday against the Red Sox. Saturday, 5:18 pm
  • Denard Span (hip) scratched from lineup
    Denard Span was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Saturday due to a bruised right hip.

    Advice: Span is still dealing with a bit of soreness from crashing into the outfield wall earlier in the week, so manager Bruce Bochy felt he could get him a day off now that Hunter Pence had returned. Span should be back in the lineup on Sunday. Saturday, 11:55 am
  • Mark Teixeira unlikely to return on Sunday
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Saturday that he doesn't expect Mark Teixeira (neck) to return on Sunday.

    Advice: While he won't be ready on Sunday, Teixeira is inching close to a return and could rejoin the Bombers lineup on Monday. He has been sidelined since experiencing renewed discomfort in his neck on Wednesday. Saturday, 11:47 am
    4:07 pm @Tor
  • 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. Friday, 11:08 am
    10:10 am vs ^ CWS
  • Mark Teixeira (neck) receives cortisone shot
    Mark Teixeira received a cortisone injection for his sore neck on Thursday.

    Advice: He's expected to miss the next three games, including Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Blue Jays. Teixeira began experiencing renewed discomfort in his neck on Wednesday, but an MRI ruled out anything serious. He should back in action Sunday if the cortisone has the intended effect. Thursday, 11:04 am
    4:07 pm @Tor
  • Carlos Gomez (ribs) hits homer at Double-A
    Carlos Gomez (ribs) hit a solo home run in a rehab game Wednesday night with Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: It was his first home run at any level of baseball since the calendar turned to 2016. Gomez ultimately finished the night 1-for-4 and is now 1-for-8 through two rehab games. The center fielder was batting just .182 with a .486 OPS in 34 games for Houston when he landed on the disabled list May 16 with a bruised left rib cage. He'll be back in the majors next week. Wednesday, 7:51 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Mark Teixeira (neck) will have cortisone shot
    Mark Teixeira is scheduled to receive a cortisone shot for his renewed neck discomfort.

    Advice: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the club is not considering placing Teixeira on the disabled list yet, but he's going to have to miss at least a couple more games while the cortisone takes effect. The veteran first baseman underwent an MRI on Wednesday afternoon, which apparently showed no major structural damage. He has been bothered by neck spasms for much of May. Wednesday, 7:29 pm
    4:07 pm @Tor
  • Yankees send Mark Teixeira (neck) for MRI
    Mark Teixeira (neck) underwent an MRI on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Yankees are still waiting on the results of the MRI. Neck spasms have bothered Teixeira on-and-off throughout the month of May. A stint on the disabled list is in play if the testing results are not to the team's liking. Teixeira is hitting just .195/.294/.282 over 149 at-bats this season. Wednesday, 3:36 pm
    4:07 pm @Tor
  • Teixeira has neck flareup, sitting Wednesday
    Mark Teixeira is out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday with renewed neck discomfort.

    Advice: He has three homers in nine career at-bats against the Blue Jays' starter, Marco Estrada, so it's a big absence. Teixeira is considered day-to-day for now. Wednesday, 12:56 pm
    4:07 pm @Tor
  • Span getting normal day of rest Wednesday
    Denard Span is getting a normal day of rest Wednesday.

    Advice: He was in the original lineup, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy ultimately elected to give the 32-year-old outfielder a day off for the matinee game versus the Padres. Span should be fine to return to action for Friday's series opener at Coors Field. Gregor Blanco is starting in center field Wednesday and Kelby Tomlinson is playing left. Wednesday, 11:35 am
  • Span scratched from the Giants' lineup Wed.
    Denard Span has been scratched from the Giants' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Padres.

    Advice: No word yet on the reason for the sudden absence. Gregor Blanco is now starting in center field and batting leadoff against Padres right-hander James Shields. Kelby Tomlinson will get a rate start in left field. Wednesday, 10:34 am
  • Michael Wacha pummeled for eight runs
    Michael Wacha was roughed up for eight runs over five innings of work in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: It was ugly from the get-go for Wacha in this one, as the Cubs saddled him with six runs before he could escape the first inning. He began to settle in a bit after that but was KO'd by a Jorge Soler two-run shot in the fifth. Wacha is in the midst of an awful stretch, as he's seen his ERA rise from 2.65 to 5.08 over his last four outings. He'll try to get back on track this weekend in Washington. Tuesday, 8:09 pm
  • Carlos Gomez (ribs) goes 0-for-3 in rehab
    Carlos Gomez (ribs) went 0-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch in his minor league rehab debut with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Gomez, on the 15-day disabled list since May 16 with a bruised left rib cage, should be ready to for activation when first eligible next week. He was batting just .182 with a .486 OPS over his first 34 games this season for Houston, but the dynamic 30-year-old center fielder seems like a pretty good buy-low target in standard fantasy leagues. Tuesday, 8:08 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Flores (hamstring) goes 2-for-3 on rehab
    Wilmer Flores (hamstring) went 2-for-3 in his rehab debut Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

    Advice: He also played seven innings at first base without issue. Flores is on track to return from the disabled list when first eligible this Friday night against the Dodgers and he could see a good amount of starts at first base with Lucas Duda (back) sidelined. Tuesday, 5:43 pm
    10:10 am vs ^ CWS
  • Carlos Gomez (rib cage) ready for rehab stint
    Carlos Gomez (rib cage) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

    Advice: Gomez landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a bruised left rib cage. He's not eligible to return until the beginning of June, but getting a bunch of at-bats in the minors isn't the worst idea for him. He's batting just .182 with a .486 OPS in 34 games this season. Tuesday, 12:25 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Lincecum throws simulated game
    Tim Lincecum threw a simulated game on Monday.

    Advice: Lincecum will throw one more before getting into game action with Triple-A Salt Lake. He's expected to make at least two starts in the minors before joining the Angels, which puts him on track for around mid-June. Monday, 3:02 pm

  • Ubaldo Jimenez blasted again in loss to Halos
    Ubaldo Jimenez was blasted again in Sunday's loss to the Angels, giving up six runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Jimenez walked three and struck out three in the contest. After scratching out a run in the second inning, the Angels erupted for five in the third. It's actually a minor miracle that Jimenez was able to regain his composure and pitch into the sixth inning. While he'll remain in the rotation for now, he owns a troublesome 6.04 ERA and 1.78 WHIP on the season and shouldn't be in any fantasy lineups for Saturday's start against the Indians in Cleveland. May 22, 5:21 pm
  • Hughes allows three runs over six in loss
    Phil Hughes allowed three earned runs over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Toronto scored all three of those runs in the top of the first, on solo homers by Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson and an RBI double from Troy Tulowitzki. Hughes did settle in after that, but he got very little help from the Minnesota offense in falling to 1-7 on the year. A road start against the Mariners is next. May 22, 1:48 pm
  • Tim Lincecum to report to Triple-A soon
    Tim Lincecum is expected to join Triple-A Salt Lake's rotation around the end of May.

    Advice: Linececum is still throwing at extended spring training for now. He'll make at least two starts for Salt Lake before joining the Angels' rotation, putting him in line to return to the majors in mid-June if all goes well. May 22, 11:14 am

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

    Advice: Marte sprained his left thumb on a slide Saturday but has apparently avoided a serious injury. "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." Shawn O'Malley is at shortstop for the M's on Sunday, but Chris Taylor has been recalled and figures to see the bulk of the starts at the position while Marte is out. May 22, 8:38 am
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm vs SD
  • Ketel Marte (thumb) placed on disabled list
    Mariners placed SS Ketel Marte on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left thumb.

    Advice: Marte suffered the injury while stealing a base on Saturday. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but the Mariners should have more later Sunday. Shawn O'Malley is at shortstop Sunday, but Chris Taylor has been recalled and figures to see the bulk of the starts at the position while Marte is out. May 22, 8:04 am
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm vs SD
  • Ketel Marte (thumb) not in lineup Sunday
    Ketel Marte (thumb) is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Marte left Saturday's game when he sprained his left thumb and could require a disabled list stint, although the club hasn't announced a move to this point. Shawn O'Malley is at shortstop for the M's on Sunday. Seattle also has Steve Clevenger at catcher over Chris Iannetta. May 22, 7:17 am
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm vs SD
  • Ketel Marte's X-rays come back negative
    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. May 21, 6:55 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm vs SD
  • Marte swipes two bags in win over Reds
    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. May 21, 4:10 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm vs SD
  • Ketel Marte leaves early with left hand injury
    Ketel Marte left Saturday's game against the Reds with a left hand injury.

    Advice: Marte appeared to hurt himself sliding into second base in the fifth inning. He went 1-for-3 with a steal before exiting. Marte was replaced at shortstop by utility man Sean O'Malley. The Mariners should update his condition after the game. May 21, 3:23 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm vs SD
  • Inciarte has RBI double in win over Phillies
    Ender Inciarte had an RBI double and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Inciarte's run-scoring double in the fourth inning got the scoring started and ended up being all Williams Perez and company would need on the afternoon. He then promptly stole third base, his first steal of the season after being slowed by a hamstring injury since early April. Inciarte stole 21 bases for the Diamondbacks last season and should have the green light with the bottom-dwelling Braves, so if his hamstring is feeling better the stolen base should be the first of many this year for the 25-year-old. May 21, 3:07 pm
  • Carlos Gomez (ribs) could begin rehab soon
    Carlos Gomez (rib cage) worked out at Minute Maid Park on Saturday.

    Advice: He expects to do the same on Sunday. If that goes well, Gomez would likely begin a week-long rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi. The two-time All-Star has struggled mightily this year, hitting just .182 with 46 strikeouts in 121 at-bats. May 21, 2:34 pm
    15-Day DL
    1:10 pm @Ari
  • Wilmer Flores to begin rehab on Tuesday
    Wilmer Flores (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday.

    Advice: Flores is expected to be activated from the disabled list as soon as he's eligible on Friday. He'll get a few games under his belt in the minor leagues to get his timing back before a return to a utility role with the Mets. May 21, 10:23 am
    10:10 am vs ^ CWS
  • Lincecum likely to need 20-30 days in minors
    Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Friday that he expects Tim Lincecum to need 20-30 days in the minors before joining the major league rotation.

    Advice: That puts him in line to make his Angels' debut around the middle of June. Lincecum's one-year contract with the Angels became official on Friday, and Eppler says the veteran right-hander has "earned" the right to tell the club when he's ready to start a major league game.

  • Gomez (ribs) could resume activities soon
    The Astros are hopeful that Carlos Gomez (rib cage) will be ready to resume baseball activities early next week.

    Advice: "We're shooting for maybe next week sometime," manager A.J. Hinch said Thursday. "I'm going to talk to him today and I'll probably meet up with him over the weekend in Houston and we'll develop a plan, but we're hopeful to get him back into baseball activities by early next week." While Gomez appears close to resuming baseball activities, it might be a while before he is activated. The Astros could use most, if not all, of the allotted 20 days on a rehab assignment for Gomez to work on his swing after a really rough start to the season. May 20, 6:31 am

  • Wacha gives up six runs in four-inning start
    Michael Wacha lasted just four innings Thursday, allowing six runs on eight hits in a no-decision against the Rockies.

    Advice: Wacha was staked to an early four-run lead but stumbled in the third, allowing two runs on a Trevor Story double, and four more runs in the fourth -- including RBI singles from the seventh-place hitter and the pitcher -- spelled his exit. It's the second straight start he's lasted just four innings, and his ERA is up to 4.03 with a 1.46 WHIP after the rough night. It doesn't get any easier for Wacha on Monday when he takes on the Cubs. May 19, 9:27 pm
