  • Rockies prepared to trade Carlos Gonzalez
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies are planning to trade outfielder Carlos Gonzalez.

    Advice: And the timing couldn't be better, as Gonzalez went deep twice on Monday against the Cubs and now has 10 home runs this month. The 29-year-old is batting .278/.332/.520 with 20 home runs and 51 RBI overall this season. His injury history and contract could cause some teams to shy away, but he has the potential to be an impact bat for a contender. He's making $16 million this season and is owed $37 million from 2016-2017. Today, 6:44 am
  • Nats to activate Zimmerman (foot) on Tuesday
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) will be activated from the disabled list for Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

    Advice: The Nationals got Anthony Rendon back over the weekend and they are now prepared to add Jayson Werth and Zimmerman back into the mix. Sidelined since early June with plantar fasciitis, Zimmerman went just 1-for-15 during his minor league rehab assignment, but the important thing is that the rest has done him good. Today, 6:30 am
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Jayson Werth (wrist) to be activated Tuesday
    Jayson Werth (wrist) is set to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

    Advice: The Nationals will also get Ryan Zimmerman (foot) back on Tuesday. Werth, out since mid-May with two small fractures in his left wrist, batted .367 (11-for-30) with two doubles over nine minor league rehab games between High-A Potomac and Triple-A Syracuse. Today, 6:28 am
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Dee Gordon (thumb) hopes to be activated Tue.
    Dee Gordon (thumb) went 1-for-4 with a single and played seven innings in the field in a minor league rehab game Monday with High-A Jupiter.

    Advice: Gordon reported "no pain" with his dislocated left thumb and declared himself ready to be activated on Tuesday. "I'm not the training staff -- I'm going to go with whatever the organization wants me to do," said Gordon. "But I feel good and it was good to get back out there today." Today, 6:23 am
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Was
  • Segura (illness) hitless in return to lineup
    Jean Segura (illness) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Monday in his return to action against the Giants.

    Advice: Segura was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a sore throat, but he's back to normal now. The 25-year-old is batting .272/.301/.346 over 82 games this season. Today, 5:48 am
  • Mets not interested in reacquiring Jose Reyes
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are not interested in reacquiring Jose Reyes.

    Advice: Reyes is set to be traded to the Rockies (along with Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro, and Jesus Tinoco), but many expect that he will eventually be flipped elsewhere. The 32-year-old is owed $22 million per season through 2017, with a $22 million option or a $4 million buyout for 2018, which would likely be too expensive for the Mets unless the Rockies were to absorb a big chunk of his remaining salary. Reyes has also shown a decline in skills, both at the plate and in the field. He's batting .285 with four home runs and a .708 OPS over 69 games this season. Today, 5:30 am
  • Welington Castillo exits after HBP on elbow
    Welington Castillo left Monday's game versus the Mariners after being hit on the elbow by a pitch.

    Advice: Castillo didn't sound too optimistic about the injury after the game. "It doesn’t feel really good right now," he said. "We will see tomorrow." Jarrod Saltalamacchia would be in line for more playing time if Castillo is sidelined for a while. Yesterday, 11:26 pm
  • Chafin closes out 10-inning win over Mariners
    Andrew Chafin pitched a scoreless 10th inning, closing out Monday's 4-3 win against the Mariners.

    Advice: Regular closer Brad Ziegler had pitched on each of the previous three days, so Chafin filled in on Monday. He allowed a one-out hit to Kyle Seager, who advanced to second base on a ground out. The lefty then intentionally walked Robinson Cano before getting Seth Smith to strike out to end the game. Brad Ziegler will continue getting the ball in save opportunities for the D'Backs, but there's a chance he could be traded. In that case, Chafin would be a candidate to pick up saves. Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • Ray fires seven strong innings vs. Mariners
    Robbie Ray pitched well in a no-decision, halting the Mariners at two runs in seven innings in Monday's 10-inning victory.

    Advice: Ray allowed six hits and two walks while striking out eight. The first run came in on Logan Morrison's RBI single in the fifth inning, and the second was courtesy Robinson Cano in the sixth on a solo homer. Ray has been terrific in 11 starts this year, boasting a 2.70 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 58/17 K/BB ratio over 66 2/3 innings. He'll face off with the Astros at Minute Maid Park in his next outing. Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Cano walks twice, homers, but Mariners lose
    Robinson Cano had a pair of walks and a solo home run in five plate appearances, but the Mariners fell to the Diamondbacks in 10 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Cano delivered a solo home run off of Robbie Ray in the sixth inning to reduce the Mariners' deficit to one run. He's had a torrid July, homering seven times while hitting .347 (33-for-95). As a result, his triple-slash line is up to .265/.309/.416 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI on the season. Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Castillo homers, D'Backs beat the Mariners
    Welington Castillo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Diamondbacks eked out a win over the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Castillo pushed the Diamondbacks' lead to 2-0 with a solo shot off of Mike Montgomery in the second inning. The catcher has gone yard six times in 122 plate appearances as a member of the Diamondbacks, giving him eight total along with 23 RBI. Castillo is carrying a .238/.324/.457 line as a National Leaguer. Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Dodgers discussing Guerrero in trade talks
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers have discussed parting with Alex Guerrero in trade talks.

    Advice: Guerrero has a clause in his contract that says he can become a free agent at the end of the season if he's traded, but the Los Angeles Times reported recently that he would consider waiving that right if it meant more money. Rosenthal says that the Dodgers, not surprisingly, are looking for pitching in return. Yesterday, 10:27 pm
  • Romo escapes trouble to earn second save
    Sergio Romo got out of hot water in the ninth inning to pick up his second save in Monday's 4-2 win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Carlos Gomez led off the inning, reaching first base on an infield single, but he was thrown out at second base attempting to steal on a controversial call. He was ejected from the game for arguing the call. With two outs, Romo then gave up a double to Scooter Gennett to bring the winning run to the plate, but struck out Jean Segura to end it. Romo has functioned as the set-up man for closer Santiago Casilla, so his save chances should continue coming in very rarely going forward. He was just giving Casilla an extra day of rest after he threw 35 pitches on back-to-back days. Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Lohse pitches into seventh, but loses to SFG
    Kyle Lohse yielded four runs over 6 2/3 innings, taking his 12th loss of the season on Monday versus the Giants.

    Advice: The Giants put up a three-spot in the fourth inning, which included a two-run Brandon Crawford home run. Gregor Blanco ripped a pinch-hit RBI double in the seventh. Lohse, overall, gave up five hits and three walks, and failed to register a strikeout. The right-hander owns an abysmal 6.24 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP and an 83/29 K/BB ratio over 119 2/3 innings. He faces the Cubs in a home start next. Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Troy Tulowitzki traded to Jays for Jose Reyes
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Troy Tulowitzki and LaTroy Hawkins have been traded to the Blue Jays for Jose Reyes and minor leaguers.

    Advice: Well, how about that for a late-night surprise? Offense certainly wasn't a need for Toronto given that they are leading baseball in runs by a wide margin, but they obviously saw an opportunity to make a strength even stronger. They're also improving their defense with the deal, as Reyes' defense has really gone south. Tulo is under contract through 2020 with a club option for 2021. Reyes might be flipped elsewhere, as dealing Tulo but then taking on Reyes' contract wouldn't mesh with the Rockies' rebuild. Colorado is reportedly set to receive Jeff Hoffman, Miguel Castro and one other minor leaguer in the deal. Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • 'Several teams' interested in Hisashi Iwakuma
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Mariners have heard from "several teams" interested in Hisashi Iwakuma.

    Advice: However, Morosi adds that Seattle "still hasn't committed firmly to trading him." The Mariners are, at best, on the fringe of the Wild Card race and Iwakuma is a free agent after this season, but it doesn't appear they're ready to give up yet. Iwakuma has been limited to just seven starts this season due to injury but has been really good the last three times out, allowing a total of just four runs. Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Gonzalez homers twice, but the Rockies lose
    Carlos Gonzalez homered twice in a 4-for-5 effort, but the Rockies lost to the Cubs on Monday.

    Advice: Gonzalez started the scoring when he drilled a two-run home run to left-center off of Kyle Hendricks in the third inning. He helped the Rockies rally for a four-run ninth inning, drilling a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning against Rafael Soriano. It wasn't a lead they would hold, however. Gonzalez has been on fire in July, racking up 10 multi-hit performances in 19 games. He has 20 home runs on the season with 51 RBI and a .278/.332/.520 triple-slash line. Yesterday, 8:42 pm
  • Alex Guerrero (back) served as defensive sub
    Alex Guerrero served as a late-inning defensive sub in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Guerrero was a late scratch from the Dodgers' starting lineup on Friday because of stiffness in his back and he hasn't made a plate appearance since. The 28-year-old Cuban utilityman has 10 home runs and 30 RBI in just 167 plate appearances this season. Yesterday, 5:58 am
  • CarGo stays hot as Rockies rout the Reds
    Carlos Gonzalez stayed red-hot on Sunday, blasting another pair of home runs and driving in six as the Rockies routed the Reds 17-7 at Coors Field.

    Advice: Gonzalez delivered an RBI single to start a 10-run third inning, which he finished with a two-run homer. He wasn't finished though, as he clobbered a three-run shot in the fifth to cap off his massive afternoon. He has now hit seven home runs in his last nine games and is slashing .270/.326/.497 on the season with 18 long balls and 47 RBI. Sunday, 5:22 pm
  • Jean Segura (sore throat) scratched
    Jean Segura was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a sore throat.

    Advice: He should be better in a day or two. Hector Gomez will take Segura's spot at shortstop. Sunday, 11:06 am
  • Dee Gordon (thumb) could be activated Tues.
    Dee Gordon (thumb) could be activated on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gordon will play in a rehab game with High-A Jupiter on Sunday and could get immediate clearance to return if it goes well. The speedy second baseman has been out since July 12 with a dislocated left thumb. He's batting .338/.359/.413 with 33 stolen bases in 84 games this season for the Marlins. Saturday, 6:12 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Was
  • Cano slugs three-run homer in M's loss
    Robinson Cano slugged a three-run homer Saturday in the Mariners' loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It was a fourth-inning shot to left field off Jays starter Drew Hutchison. Cano has been producing this entire month and is obviously capable of finishing strong. Saturday, 4:44 pm
  • Mets made push for Tulo, doubtful he's moved
    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Mets made a push for Troy Tulowitzki but came away with the impression that the Rockies will not move him.

    Advice: The Mets have the kind of young pitchers the Rockies should be trying to stockpile, but there has been no indication from the Colorado front office that Tulo is on the block. And it seems the Mets have now moved on to other offensive targets like Ben Zobrist, Jay Bruce, and Justin Upton. Tulowitzki, 30, is under contract with the Rockies through at least 2020. Saturday, 1:28 pm
  • Welington Castillo appears as pinch hitter
    Welington Castillo (hamstring) grounded out as a pinch hitter in Friday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Castillo was scratched from the D'Backs starting lineup on Wednesday due to tightness in his hamstring and hasn't started since. He's expected to get back behind the dish at some point over the weekend. Saturday, 5:38 am
  • CarGo has two-homer night against Reds
    Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo homers in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Make that five home runs in his last eight games. Who knows if the Rockies will actually deal CarGo before next Friday's non-waiver trade deadline, but the recent power surge is surely appreciated by the front office. Friday, 9:43 pm
  • Alex Guerrero scratched due to back stiffness
    Alex Guerrero was scratched from the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday due to back stiffness.

    Advice: He had been in line to make a rare start in left field, but his back acted up during pregame warmups. Kike Hernandez will take his place in left field and bat sixth for the Dodgers. Friday, 4:36 pm
  • Dee Gordon to take batting practice soon
    Dee Gordon (thumb) is scheduled to begin taking batting practice before the end of the week.

    Advice: The speedy infielder has been sidelined since July 12 due to a dislocated thumb. Once he's cleared for full baseball activities, he'll need a couple of games on a minor league rehab assignment before he's ready to rejoin the Marlins. Gordon remains hopeful for a return before the end of July. Thursday, 5:35 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm vs Was
  • Jose Reyes should be able to play on Friday
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Thursday that Jose Reyes was fine and should be able to play on Friday.

    Advice: Reyes was forced to leave Thursday's game after taking an errant throw off his face. Gibbons indicated he had been hit on the lips and was "spitting a little blood", but otherwise should be fine. Look for Reyes to be at his regular post atop the Blue Jays lineup on Friday. Thursday, 5:29 pm
  • Jose Reyes exits game with apparent injury
    Jose Reyes left Thursday game against the Athletics in the eighth inning with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Reyes appeared to injure himself in a collision at second base, potentially as a result of being hit by the ball. Ryan Goins replaced him at shortstop. The Blue Jays should pass along an update soon. Thursday, 2:50 pm
  • Iwakuma duels Price to standstill
    Hisashi Iwakuma earned a strong no-decision in Thursday afternoon's contest with the Tigers, allowing two runs on six hits over seven innings.

    Advice: Iwakuma and David Price were locked in a fun little pitcher's duel on Thursday. For most of the game, Price held a 2-1 advantage, but the M's managed to tie things up with a Mark Trumbo single in the seventh. They would go on to win in 12 innings, though Iwakuma was long gone by that point. For his part, the pitcher allowed a two-run double to Victor Martinez in the first inning before settling down to shutout the Tigers over the next six innings. He struck out seven and walked two on the day. After missing over two months with a strained lat muscle, the Japanese import finally appears to be rounding into form and should be seriously considered for deeper mixed-league formats. Overall, he's the owner of a 4.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 32/7 K/BB ratio over 42 innings. He's never posted an ERA higher than 3.52 in his career. He'll try to keep his good roll going in a home start against the Diamondbacks next time he toes the rubber. Thursday, 2:43 pm
  • Castillo (hamstring) remains out Thursday
    Welington Castillo (hamstring) remains out of Thursday's lineup.

    Advice: Castillo was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to left hamstring tightness and apparently needs another day. Oscar Hernandez will start behind the plate again. Thursday, 2:24 pm
  • Ray falls back to earth in loss to the Fish
    Robbie Ray coughed up five runs (four earned) across 4 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Ray whiffed four, issued three free passes and gave up five hits. It was a disappointing outing from the resurgent 23-year-old, who had allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his last nine starts coming in. We endorse Ray as a consistent NL-only play. Mixed leaguers may also want to take a look at Ray's upcoming two-start week; the matchup in Seattle is ideal, while the date in Houston brings risk. Wednesday, 10:01 pm
  • Castillo scratched with hamstring tightness
    Welington Castillo was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to left hamstring tightness.

    Advice: The injury appears to be new, as he hasn't missed any time due to hamstring tightness to this point. Oscar Hernandez will start behind the dish in his place Wednesday. Wednesday, 5:05 pm
  • Gonzalez's three-run homer not enough vs TEX
    Carlos Gonzalez smashed a three-run homer in Wednesday's 10-8 loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Gonzalez's three-run homer in the eighth inning tied the game at 8-all, but alas, the Rockies bullpen immediately blew the team's new-found lease on life. The outfielder would finish the game 1-for-4. After some tough sledding early in the season, the once-mighty slugger has shown signs of life in June and July and has pushed his overall slash-line to .258/.315/.455 to pair with 14 homers and 39 RBI. He's bounced back nicely from an injury-plagued 2014 and he could post a very good second half to the season if he's able to keep this going. Wednesday, 4:25 pm
  • Lohse pounded for five runs by Indians
    Kyle Lohse fooled nobody in Wednesday afternoon's loss to the Indians, surrendering five runs on 10 hits over five innings.

    Advice: Of the 10 hits Lohse allowed, two left the ballpark in the form of a solo home run by Francisco Lindor in the first inning and a three-run shot by Michael Brantley in the third. The veteran right-hander struck out three and walked three in the ugly outing. His numbers for the season? Also less than shiny, as he now holds a 6.29 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 83/26 K/BB ratio over 113 innings. Assuming he hasn't pitched his way out of the Brewer rotation, he'll take to the road to face the Giants in his next start. Wednesday, 2:39 pm
  • Segura fills up the box score against Indians
    Jean Segura did a bit of everything Tuesday, finishing 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base against the Indians.

    Advice: Segura was one of the few Brewers to find success against Indians starter Danny Salazar, hitting a two-run homer off him -- his first homer since June 5 -- in the second inning. The stolen base was his 14th of the year, and Segura is batting .282/.310/.361 overall in a decent bounce-back campaign. Tuesday, 8:14 pm
  • Werth (wrist) singles in rehab game
    Jayson Werth (wrist) went 1-for-3 with a single Monday in a minor league rehab game with Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Werth moved up to Triple-A after going 2-for-7 with two RBI and a walk over three rehab games with High-A Potomac. He should be ready to rejoin the Nationals in a few days. The veteran outfielder has been sidelined since mid-May with two small fractures in his left wrist. Tuesday, 8:36 am
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Tulowitzki homers as Rockies win a slugfest
    Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run as the Rockies took down the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Tulowitzki polished off a four-run second inning with a two-run home run off of Nick Martinez to make it a 7-0 game at the time. The shortstop has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 12 on the season with 52 RBI and a .320/.365/.502 triple-slash line. Monday, 9:21 pm
  • Cano homers again, but Mariners fall to DET
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Tigers on Monday.

    Advice: Cano tied the game at three apiece with his solo home run in the fifth inning against Alfredo Simon. It's his fifth home run of the month and ninth of the season, as the second baseman appears to have finally discovered his power stroke. Cano still owns a disappointing .255/.294/.393 batting line with 35 RBI. Monday, 7:21 pm
  • Jayson Werth moved to the 60-day DL
    Nationals transferred OF Jayson Werth from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: It's just a procedural move to clear a 40-man roster spot for new reliever Abel de los Santos. Werth, out since May 15 with fractures in his left wrist, should be ready to join the Nationals in about a week. Monday, 11:16 am
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Jayson Werth (wrist) continuing rehab at AAA
    Jayson Werth (wrist) will continue his rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Syracuse.

    Advice: Werth had two hits in seven at-bats at High-A Potomac. He has been out since the middle of May with two small fractures in his left wrist and was originally projected to remain sidelined until August, but the veteran outfielder now seems to be trending smoothly toward a late-July return. Werth can provide a nice boost for the Washington offense down the stretch and into October, even at age 36. Monday, 9:07 am
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Zimmerman goes 1-for-2 in first rehab game
    Ryan Zimmerman went 1-for-2 and played three innings defensively at first base in his first minor league rehab game at Double-A Harrisburg on Sunday.

    Advice: Zimmerman has been sidelined since early June due to plantar fasciitis. He isn't expected to need many rehab games before he's ready to rejoin the Nationals, and could be cleared to do so at some point next week. Jul 19, 1:54 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Zimmerman (foot) set for rehab assignment
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Sunday.

    Advice: Zimmerman was able to run the bases without any issues on Friday, clearing the way for his return to game action. The plantar fasciitis in his left foot is going to be an issue for the rest of the season, but he'll do his best to play through it. Zimmerman shouldn't need too many rehab games before being activated. Jul 19, 8:03 am
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Sergio Romo earns first save of the season
    Sergio Romo earned his first save of the season Saturday in the Giants' victory over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Romo entered in the eighth inning and retired the only batter he faced in that frame, so Giants manager Bruce Bochy just let him finish out the eventual 8-4 win. Santiago Casilla is still the closer in San Francisco. Jul 18, 9:02 pm
  • Iwakuma fans five in victory over Yankees
    Hisashi Iwakuma racked up five strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings as he defeated the Yankees in New York on Saturday.

    Advice: The right-hander allowed just two runs on five hits in the contest. All of the damage against him came on a two-run homer off the bat of Brian McCann in the fourth inning. After delivering a clunker in his return from the disabled list, Iwakuma has now won two consecutive starts and looks to be getting stronger as he goes. He'll take on the Tigers in Detroit his next time out on Thursday. Jul 18, 1:22 pm
  • Cano blasts pair of home runs to beat Yankees
    Robinson Cano blasted a pair of two-run home runs on Saturday, powering the Mariners to a 4-3 victory over the Yankees at his old stomping grounds in New York.

    Advice: It's the 14th time in Cano's career that he has recorded a multi-home run game, and the first time he has accomplished the feat as a Mariner. He got the Mariners on the board with a two-run shot off Michael Pineda in the first inning, then broke a 2-2 tie when he replicated the feat in the sixth. He finished the afternoon 3-for-4, raising his season slash to .254/.292/.387 to go along with his eight homers and 34 RBI. Jul 18, 1:22 pm
  • Zimmerman runs bases without issue Friday
    Ryan Zimmerman (foot) was able to run the bases without any issues on Friday.

    Advice: Zimmerman has missed the last month of action due to plantar fasciitis in his foot, but has made significant strides in his recovery in recent days. He should begin a minor league rehab assignment soon and is on track to rejoin the Nationals before the end of July. Jul 18, 9:10 am
    15-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Robbie Ray strikes out eight Giants
    Robbie Ray yielded two runs in five innings and struck out eight Friday against the Giants.

    Advice: It's a new career high in strikeouts for Ray. His last five starts haven't matched his first four, but he's still pitching plenty well enough to keep his rotation spot. With no walks tonight, he has a 46/12 K/BB ratio in 55 innings. Jul 17, 10:53 pm
