  • Colome (illness) to continue rehab stint Tue.
    Alex Colome (illness) will continue his minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: Colome, who is working his way back from pneumonia, allowed two runs in six innings across two rehab starts with High-A Charlotte. He's slated to throw four or five innings Tuesday and the next step could be for him to join the Rays' rotation.

  • Angels mapping out comeback plan for Hamilton
    Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Angels are mapping out a comeback plan for Josh Hamilton (shoulder) which could have him back with the team in early June.

    Advice: Hamilton, who is working his way back from shoulder surgery, is expected to report to the team's complex in Arizona "sooner rather than later" for two to three weeks of work in extended spring training. He would then go out on an official minor league rehab assignment. This doesn't necessarily mean that he will play for the Angels again, as his future with the team is still very much in question following his recent drug relapse. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported over the weekend that the two sides are discussing various scenarios to resolve the dispute, including a trade.

  • Mets place d'Arnaud (finger) on 15-day DL
    Mets placed C Travis d'Arnaud on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a fracture of his right little finger.

    Advice: D'Arnaud suffered the injury when he was hit in the hand by a pitch on Sunday. The plan calls for him to wear a splint for the next three weeks, after which he could be cleared for baseball activities if he's pain-free. He has a chance to rejoin the Mets by the end of May if there are no setbacks, which is good news under the circumstances. Prospect Kevin Plawecki has been called up and will get most of the playing time behind the plate.

  • Mets transfer RHP Wheeler to 60-day DL
    Mets transferred RHP Zack Wheeler from the 15-day disabled to the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for Kevin Plawecki on the Mets' 40-man roster. Wheeler underwent Tommy John surgery last month and also had his flexor pronator repaired. The expectation is that he'll be out through at least the first couple of months of the 2016 season.

  • Gregerson grabs third save in win vs Mariners
    Luke Gregerson picked up his third save of the season, closing out the Astros' 7-5 win over the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Gregerson brought the tying run to the plate after issuing a two-out walk to Kyle Seager, but he got Seth Smith to strike out swinging to end the ballgame. Gregerson remains unscored upon while converting all three save opportunities with a 7/1 K/BB ratio in seven innings.

  • Iwakuma mediocre again in a no-decision
    Hisashi Iwakuma turned in his third consecutive mediocre start, giving up four runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Iwakuma has been rather home run prone to start the year. He allowed two more on Monday night, giving him five in 16 1/3 innings to start the season. Overall, he gave up five hits, walked none, and struck out three. Iwakuma owns a 6.61 ERA and he has a good shot at lowering it as his next start comes against the Twins at home over the weekend.
    Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Wojciechowski lasts 4 innings in no-decision
    Asher Wojciechowski got a no-decision in Monday's win against the Mariners, yielding four runs in four innings.

    Advice: The right-hander allowed a bunch of base runners, as the Mariners racked up eight hits and drew two walks. Wojciechowski struck out six on the evening. Getting through the Mariners' tough lineup without allowing any home runs is an achievement at least. He'll get the Athletics on Oakland in his next start.
    Yesterday, 10:41 pm
  • Rasmus homers as Astros top the Mariners
    Colby Rasmus went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win against the Mariners.

    Advice: Rasmus broke a 2-2 tie with a fifth-inning home run off of Hisashi Iwakuma. As usual, he hasn't done much in the average or on-base percentage departments, but has hit for good power. Rasmus has a .200/.273/.500 with two home runs, a double, and a triple in 33 plate appearances.
    Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Valbuena powers Astros with a pair of homers
    Luis Valbuena hit a pair of solo home runs and lifted a sacrifice fly to help the Astros beat the Mariners on Monday.

    Advice: Valbuena hit his first homer in the first inning off of Hisashi Iwakuma and his second in the eighth inning against Danny Farquhar. Valbuena, pushed out of the picture with the Cubs by the impending arrival of Kris Bryant, has been a nice find for the Astros. He has five home runs, seven RBI, and a .244/.304/.634 slash line in 46 plate appearances.
    Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Shoemaker struggles again in a loss to A's
    Matt Shoemaker struggled on Monday, allowing five runs in three innings as the Angels lost 6-3 to the Athletics.

    Advice: Shoemaker allowed seven hits -- including home runs to Stephen Vogt and Marcus Semien -- while walking three and striking out two. The right-hander started the fourth inning but was promptly replaced after issuing a leadoff home run to Semien. Shoemaker owns a 6.46 ERA, which he'll try to lower in a weekend home start against the Rangers next.
    Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Semien homers as Athletics beat the Angels
    Marcus Semien went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday in a win over the Angels.

    Advice: Semien went yard off of Matt Shoemaker in the fourth inning to boost the Athletics' lead to 5-3. The shortstop had been in a bit of a funk, going just 2-for-17 in his previous five games entering Monday.
    Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Dickerson nursing 'mild' plantar fasciitis
    Corey Dickerson had to leave Monday's game versus the Padres due to what Rockies manager Walt Weiss referred to as "mild" plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

    Advice: That Weiss is calling the ailment mild suggests that they'll try to avoid putting Dickerson on the disabled list for the time being. It's definitely and injury that can be nagging, though, so fantasy owners should have a contingency plan in place. Dickerson is batting .286/.314/.510 with two homers and 10 RBI this season. Drew Stubbs would stand to gain the extra playing time while Dickerson is out.
    Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Alonso plates three runs in rout of Rockies
    Yonder Alonso plated three runs in a 2-for-4 effort as the Padres ran roughshod over the Rockies 14-3 on Monday.

    Advice: Alonso singled in two runs in the first inning and added a sacrifice fly in the second. The first baseman entered the season as one of the weaker-hitting players at his position but has been on fire in his first 52 plate appearances, carrying a .364/.453/.477 triple-slash line with one home run and seven RBI.
    Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Despaigne superb again as Padres top Rockies
    Odrisamer Despaigne picked up his second win of the season against the Rockies on Monday, limiting them to two runs in 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Both runs scored in the fourth inning, when the Rockies enjoyed a pair of RBI singles, but they were too far behind for it to matter at that point. Despaigne gave up six hits and walked two while striking out five on the night. The right-hander has been excellent in three starts, owning a 1.47 ERA with a 0.34 WHIP and a 9/4 K/BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings. Despaigne will have to work against a tough Dodgers lineup at home in his next start.
    Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Norris doubles twice, scores 3 times in win
    Derek Norris doubled twice and singled in five at-bats in Monday's trampling of the Rockies.

    Advice: Norris scored all three times he was on base and even knocked in a run with a double in the fifth inning. Most of the offense Norris has shown so far has been in the form of singles, but he still boasts a productive .314/.340/.412 triple-slash line in 51 plate appearances.
    Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Travis d'Arnaud will be in splint for 3 weeks
    Travis d'Arnaud has a metacarpal fracture in his right hand and will be in a splint for the next three weeks.

    Advice: D'Arnaud will be allowed to resume baseball activities after those three weeks are up if the fracture is healed and he feels pain-free. The 26-year-old catcher suffered the injury Sunday when he was hit on the right hand by a pitch and it sounds like he'll be out until sometime in late May. Kevin Plawecki will be promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

  • Travis d'Arnaud diagnosed with fractured hand
    Travis d'Arnaud has been diagnosed with a fracture in his right hand.

    Advice: The Mets have now lost both d'Arnaud and Jerry Blevins to fractures in the same day. It's such rotten timing for d'Arnaud, who was off to a blistering .317/.356/.537 start at the plate. How long he'll be sidelined will depend on the specifics of the fracture, but obviously it's going to be an extended absence. Look for the Mets to promote Kevin Plawecki to fill in for d'Arnaud.

  • Travis d'Arnaud departs after HBP on hand
    Travis d'Arnaud left Sunday's game against the Marlins after being hit on the right hand/wrist by a pitch.

    Advice: D'Arnaud got plunked in the seventh inning by an A.J. Ramos offering on a half-swing. The young catcher is undoubtedly headed for X-rays to determine the extent of the damage. Losing d'Arnaud, who is off to a .317/.356/.537 start at the plate, would be a big blow for the Mets.

  • D'Arnaud homers in win over Marlins
    Travis d'Arnaud hit a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: The catcher finished the game 1-for-4 with the home run and solitary RBI. It was his second homer of the season and his ninth RBI. D'Arnaud is slashing .289/.317/.526 to this point. Last season, he hit 13 home runs in 421 at-bats, a number that certainly looks obtainable as he moves through his age-26 season.

  • Josh Hamilton filed for a divorce in February
    Court documents show Josh Hamilton has filed for divorce from his wife Katie in Tarrant County, Texas.

    Advice: Hamilton filed for divorce in late February, around the same time reports surfaced of his latest drug relapse. Hamilton was able to avoid suspension from Major League Baseball, much to the chagrin of his own team. The Angels don't want to pay the underachieving 33-year-old outfielder and have been publicly feuding with him since the spring. He hasn't even been healthy enough to play thanks to a shoulder injury. Los Angeles' five-year deal with Hamilton is looking worse by the day.

  • Halos and Hamilton attempt to resolve dispute
    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Angels and Josh Hamilton are in talks to resolve their dispute.

    Advice: The two sides are reportedly exploring multiple avenues that include trades, though nothing is believed to be close. Hamilton meanwhile continues to rehab his shoulder and isn't expected to return to the diamond until sometime in May.

  • Derek Norris not in Padres lineup Saturday
    Derek Norris is not in the Padres starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Cubs.

    Advice: It's a routine day of rest for Norris being a day game after a night game, but it's also noteworthy that it will be the second straight time that Will Nieves has caught for Tyson Ross. Expect to see Norris back in there on Sunday.
    Saturday, 8:34 am
  • Josh Hamilton doing baseball activities
    Angels manager Mike Scioscia confirmed Friday that Josh Hamilton (shoulder) has been doing some baseball activities.

    Advice: According to Scioscia, "he has been "hitting and he's been running, but he needs to expand on that". It remains a murky situation, but Hamilton had lunch with several teammates on Friday and indicated his desire to return to the team. He isn't expected to be ready to take the field until sometime in May.

  • Asher Wojciechowski recalled from Triple-A
    Astros recalled RHP Asher Wojciechowski from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Wojciechowski had just been sent down Tuesday, but he returns to replace the injured Brad Peacock (intercostal). He figures to serve as the team's fifth starter.
    Friday, 12:51 pm
  • Colome (illness) set for second rehab start
    Alex Colome (illness) will make his second rehab start Thursday night with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Colome, who's recovering from pneumonia, tossed three scoreless innings in his rehab debut last Saturday. He could be cleared to join the Rays' patchwork rotation if his outing Thursday goes smoothly. The 26-year-old right-hander may carry some deep mixed league fantasy value when he does get that clearance.

  • D'Arnaud belts first homer in win vs. Phils
    Travis d'Arnaud hit his first home run of the season as the Mets topped the Phillies on Wednesday.

    Advice: D'Arnaud homered in the bottom of the second off of Jerome Williams to break a 1-1 tie. The catcher has started off well, batting .333 in 30 at-bats, and he's knocked in at least one run in seven of eight games. D'Arnaud could certainly emerge into an above-average offensive catcher this season.

  • Iwakuma takes a no-decision over five innings
    Hisashi Iwakuma allowed four runs in five innings, taking a no-decision in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Iwakuma's mediocre start to the 2015 season continues, as he had given up five runs in six innings to the Angels previously. The right-hander yielded six hits and walked three while striking out five against the Dodgers. Andre Ethier and Alex Guerrero both homered off of him. Iwakuma will try to turn things around in his next start at home against the Astros.
    Tuesday, 11:01 pm
  • Dickerson triples, scores three runs in a win
    Corey Dickerson went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a triple, and three runs scored as the Rockies earned a 4-1 win over the Giants on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dickerson brought in the Rockies' first run with a single in the second inning and later scored on a wild pitch. He singled and scored in the fourth, then led off the ninth inning with a triple and later came around to score an insurance run. Dickerson has been hitting quite well, having hit safely in seven of eight games with a .406 average, six extra-base hits, nine RBI, and eight runs scored in 34 plate appearances.
    Tuesday, 10:38 pm
  • Despaigne stymies D'Backs as Padres win
    Odrisamer Despaigne stymied the Diamondbacks over seven innings, allowing only one run, in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: Despaigne is filling in for the injured Ian Kennedy and pitched admirably, limiting the D'Backs to two hits and two walks while striking out three. Mark Trumbo knocked in the only run with a fourth-inning double. Despaigne should be ignored for fantasy purposes as his next start will come against the Rockies at Coors Field.
    Tuesday, 9:43 pm
  • Alonso homers in a losing effort vs. D'Backs
    Yonder Alonso homered in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Alonso went 1-for-4 on the evening and his second-inning solo home run off of Rubby De La Rosa barely made a dent as the D'Backs were leading 4-0 at the time. Alonso has cooled off since back-to-back three-hit games in games two and three of the regular season, but is still batting a cool .360 (9-for-25).
    Monday, 10:34 pm
  • Shoemaker notches quality start in win vs TEX
    Matt Shoemaker improved to 2-0, allowing three runs in 6 1/3 innings, as the Angels went on to a 6-3 win versus the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: The Rangers got to Shoemaker early, scoring three runs in the first inning, but then the right-hander settled down. On the evening, Shoemaker yielded six hits and a walk while striking out seven. He'll look to improve to 3-0 in his next start against the Astros in Houston.
    Monday, 8:54 pm
  • Asher Wojciechowski optioned to Triple-A
    Astros optioned RHP Asher Wojciechowski to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Wojciechowski had been scheduled to start Tuesday, but he was needed out of the bullpen Monday. Brad Peacock (hip) will now be activated from the disabled list to take the ball Tuesday instead. Wojciechowski tossed four scoreless relief innings Monday after allowing four runs over four frames in a start last week.
    Monday, 8:19 pm
  • Semien hits one of Athletics' three homers
    Marcus Semien singled and hit a solo home run in four trips to the plate in Monday's 8-1 victory versus the Astros.

    Advice: Semien pushed the Athletics' lead to 5-1 at the time with a fifth-inning solo homer off of Scott Feldman, one of the Athletics' three home runs on Monday night. The young shortstop is batting .323 (10-for-31) to start the season.
    Monday, 8:19 pm
  • Alex Colome to make rehab start Saturday
    Alex Colome (illness) will make his first minor league rehab start for High-A Charlotte on Saturday.

    Advice: Colome dealt with a nasty bout of pneumonia during the spring and is still building up his strength and working his way back. He's expected to need at least two rehab starts before he's an option to rejoin the Rays rotation.
