  • Mike Napoli homers, doubles
    Mike Napoli had a homer, an RBI double and a walk Wednesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Napoli has very quietly gong 12-for-36 with two homers and five doubles in 11 games since the All-Star break. The Red Sox still aren't going to get much of anything for him if they trade him now, but he might look more attractive if he keeps this up for a couple of more weeks. In the meantime, those desperate for power in mixed leagues might want to give him a look. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:48 pm

  • Yangervis Solarte goes 4-for-5
    Yangervis Solarte finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Solarte is playing fairly regularly with Will Middlebrooks in the minors and Cory Spangenberg on the DH, and he's hit well this month, batting .284 with three homers in 74 at-bats. There's no mixed-league value here at all, but he's giving the Padres a lift. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:38 pm
  • Lucas Duda hits three homers in losing cause
    Lucas Duda hit three homers to plate all three Mets runs Wednesday against the Padres.

    Advice: Oddly enough, the last player to have three homers to account for all of a team's runs was Duda's old competitor, Ike Davis, on July 8, 2012. The Mets lost that one to the Diamondbacks 6-3. Tonight, they lost 7-3. Duda has six homers in his last four games after hitting three in his previous 46 games. Hopefully, he can stay hot like he did in April. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:32 pm

  • Singleton homers, knocks in two in a win
    Jon Singleton went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI single, and a solo home run to help the Astros take down the Angels on Wednesday.

    Advice: Singleton pushed the Astros' lead to 4-1 in the seventh inning with a solo home run off of Garrett Richards, his first round-tripper of the year. He added an RBI single in the eighth to add insurance. It's only his second multi-hit game of the season as he hasn't exactly done a whole lot at the plate in 16 games, batting .205/.321/.318 with six RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:07 pm
  • Jonathan Lucroy swipes base in loss to Giants
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 and swiped his first base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Lucroy was one of the few bright spots in the Brewers offense on a day where they were shutout by Jake Peavy and company. The hard-hitting backstop is now hitting .257/.317/.350 with three homers and 22 RBI in 61 games on the season. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:34 pm
  • Logan Morrison leaves game with thumb injury
    Logan Morrison was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks with a minor thumb injury.

    Advice: It's unclear what exactly he did to injure the thumb, but it's believed to be a minor ailment. He's considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:50 pm

  • Justin Turner will miss a few more games
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Justin Turner will miss a few more games due to the infection in his leg.

    Advice: Turner was forced to sit out on Tuesday and Wednesday after a pimple in his leg became infected and required a trip to the emergency room. Look for Alberto Callaspo and Alex Guerrero to continue see additional playing time in his absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:56 pm

  • Mark Trumbo goes hitless in loss to D'Backs
    Mark Trumbo had a rough day at the dish against his former club on Wednesday, going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: It was a tough afternoon for most M's hitters against Patrick Corbin, though Trumbo's ineptitude stood out. He's now hitting just .245/.284/.424 on the season with 12 homers and 36 RBI. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:47 pm

  • Encarnacion scratched with a jammed finger
    Edwin Encarnacion has been scratched from the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday with a jammed finger.

    Advice: X-rays on the finger -- his left middle finger -- turned up negative. Encarnacion can be considered day-to-day for now. Chris Colabello is filling in at first base and batting cleanup Wednesday against the Phillies. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:34 pm
  • Angels designate Navarro for assignment
    Angels designated OF Efren Navarro for assignment.

    Advice: Anaheim needed to clear out roster spots for the arrival of David Murphy and David DeJesus. Navarro, 29, is a .248/.306/.328 career hitter at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:39 pm

  • Dodgers/Marlins deal could involve third team
    Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that there is a third team involved in the trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Bowden says the deal will be "bigger than expected." There's a good chance it means Morse will be flipped to another team, as the Dodgers have little use for him. We should know more details later Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:43 pm

  • Buster Posey getting a breather Wednesday
    Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off with it being a day game after a night game. Hector Sanchez is catching in Posey's place. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:28 am

  • Mark Reynolds (hand) doubles in return
    Mark Reynolds (hand) doubled in one of his three at-bats in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Reynolds missed a couple games with a bruised left hand, but he'll be fine. He's batting .230/.312/.395 with nine homers for the Cardinals this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:45 am

  • Carter hits 17th homer in win over Angels
    Chris Carter hit his 17th home run of the season against the Angels on Tuesday.

    Advice: Carter hit a two-run dinger off Angels starter C.J. Wilson in the second inning, his only hit in four at-bats. He seems to be more boom-or-bust than usual of late -- Carter has five hits this month, but three of them have been homers. The 28-year-old is hitting a paltry .185/.297/.389 with 17 homers and 45 RBI overall. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:37 pm

  • Cervelli has three-hit effort versus Twins
    Francisco Cervelli went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: The 29-year-old was a quiet pickup this past offseason after the Pirates lost Russell Martin, but he's been an offensive plus for the Bucs this year. The multi-hit game was Cervelli's fourth in a row, raising his line to .301/.367/.410 with 32 RBI and 32 runs scored on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Duda homers as Mets shut out the Padres
    Lucas Duda went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Mets to a win on Tuesday against the Padres.

    Advice: Duda staked the Mets to an early 2-0 lead when he drilled a James Shields offering over the fence in center field. Given how masterful Noah Syndergaard was on the mound, it was the only offense the Mets would need. Duda has three home runs in his last three games, giving him 15 on the season with 42 RBI and a .236/.338/.433 batting line. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:45 pm

  • Justin Turner has infection on leg
    Justin Turner is not playing Tuesday due to a pimple on his leg that became infected, necessitating a visit to the emergency room after he had a reaction to medication.

    Advice: Well, that's... appetizing. The Dodgers expect to know more on Turner later Tuesday, but he should be available to play Wednesday. Alberto Callaspo is at the hot corner Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:21 pm

  • Mark Reynolds nursing bruised hand
    Mark Reynolds is not playing Monday for a second straight day due to a bruised left hand.

    Advice: Reynolds was hit by a pitch during Saturday's game. He could be available to pinch-hit Monday, although he noted that he'd have to hold his bottom hand off the end of the bat because of how sore it is. Dan Johnson is at first base Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:39 pm

  • Lucroy singles in shutout loss to Snakes
    Jonathan Lucroy went 1-for-4 with a single in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: As a team, the Brewers managed just four total hits in the game. Lucroy's single was one of them. Quiet game on the whole for the Brew Crew. This season, the catcher is hitting .248/.312/.366 with three homers and 20 RBI. He missed a significant early chunk of the year with injury and if he can stay healthy, he's a better offensive player than those numbers would indicate. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:08 pm
  • Pirates showing interest in Napoli, Victorino
    According to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune, the Pirates have shown interest in acquiring Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino from the Red Sox.

    Advice: The Pirates continue to explore ways to upgrade their offense, even after the acquisition of Aramis Ramirez. While Napoli has struggled this season, he would make for a nice compliment to Pedro Alvarez at first base for the Buccos. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:23 pm

  • Duda homers twice in beatdown rout of LAD
    Lucas Duda went 2-for-6 with a pair of solo home runs in Saturday's 15-2 demolition of the Dodgers.

    Advice: The Mets racked up 21 hits in the big win. Duda might have only had two of those, but both left the ballpark. He did his damage against the Dodgers bullpen, launching a solo shot in the sixth inning and another in the seventh. The two dingers gave him 14 on the year. He's also driven in 40 runs and is slashing .238/.340/.430. All of these numbers are down from a breakout 2014 campaign, though Duda has had his moments this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:59 pm

  • Turner homers, knocks in two runs vs. Mets
    Justin Turner went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Mets.

    Advice: Turner had three extra-base hits on the night against his former team, including an RBI double in the first inning and a solo homer in the third. The 30-year-old has hit safely in six straight games and continues to have a fantastic year. He's batting .327 with 13 home runs and a .958 OPS. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:04 pm

  • Giants could bring back Michael Morse
    MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that Michael Morse "might just be dealt" to the Giants.

    Advice: Morse, of course, had a nice season for the Giants last year. However, he's hit only .206/.268/.310 during an injury-shortened 2015 campaign and is owed $8 million next season. Plus, the Giants don't really have a need for him other than a bat off the bench. It's hard to see a fit unless the Marlins pay down the bulk of what remains on his contract.

  • Mike Napoli homers, doubles twice
    Mike Napoli went 3-for-4 with a homer and two doubles against the Astros on Thursday.

    Advice: The second double really should have been caught, but it was a hard liner that went over Preston Tucker's head in a sort of "deer in the headlights" moment. Napoli's average is back up to .206 now after three weeks below the Mendoza Line. He still probably has a hot streak in him; it just remains to be seen whether it comes in Boston or not.

  • Cervelli (arm) back in Bucs lineup Thursday
    Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is back in the Pirates' starting lineup Thursday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Cervelli missed two games after taking a pitch off his right arm on Monday night. He is starting at catcher and batting seventh in Thursday's series opener at PNC Park. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:55 pm
  • Posey has two hits, two RBI versus Padres
    Buster Posey went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Posey came through with a two-run double in the seventh inning that broke a 1-1 tie. It ended up being the game-winning RBI. The catcher is a hitting machine, owning an eight-game hitting streak that has his overall line up to .318/.384/.494 with 14 homers, 66 RBI and 48 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:05 pm

  • Cervelli (wrist) out again Wednesday vs. KC
    Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is out of the Pirates' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Cervelli had a knot on his arm Tuesday after getting hit by a pitch on Monday night. He should be fine in a day or two. Chris Stewart will start behind the plate as the Royals wrap up a big three-game series in Kansas City. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:34 pm
  • Encarnacion homers as Jays beat the A's
    Edwin Encarnacion walked twice and hit a solo home run in five plate appearances as the Blue Jays took down the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: The DH slugged a solo shot to left field in the second inning off of Kendall Graveman, putting the Jays up 1-0 early. Though Encarnacion's numbers are down compared to his previous three seasons, he has still managed a productive season, batting .233/.330/.459 with 19 home runs and 55 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:54 pm
  • Morse homers as Marlins top the D'Backs
    Michael Morse went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, helping the Marlins top the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Morse added insurance in a low-scoring affair, clubbing a solo home run to right field off of Jeremy Hellickson in the seventh inning. It was a rare sign of light at the plate for the veteran, who is hitting a paltry .211/.268/.316 with four home runs and 12 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:40 pm

  • Carter hits 16th homer in win over Red Sox
    Chris Carter went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: Carter hit a two-run blast off Justin Masterson in the sixth inning, giving him 16 home runs on the year. The two hits matched his total for the month coming into the game, as Carter has been mired in an ugly stretch that has his line down to .190/.305/.393. The power is still there, obviously, and Carter is ferocious when hot, so perhaps Tuesday will be the start of something good. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:32 pm

  • Turner belts 12th home run in loss to Braves
    Justin Turner hit his 12th home run of the season in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: A night after going 4-for-4 with three singles, Turner connected on a solo shot against Braves starter Alex Wood in Tuesday's contest. It ended up being his only hit on the night. The infielder continues to enjoy a breakout year in Los Angeles, as he's now hitting .322 with a .940 OPS and a career-high 12 homers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:48 pm

  • Jonathan Lucroy proposed extension in January
    Jonathan Lucroy revealed Tuesday that he proposed a long-term contract extension to the Brewers in January.

    Advice: "It was a proposal that would have kept me here for the rest of my career, most likely," Lucroy said. "We gave it to them in early January, and when we got to spring training, they informed us they weren't interested in doing anything at this point in time." Lucroy wouldn't reveal the details of the proposal, but it's really a moot point now. It's not surprising that the Brewers weren't in a rush to extend the catcher, as Lucroy is in the third season of a very team-friendly five-year, $11 million contract. The deal also includes a $5.25 million club option for 2017. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:22 pm
  • Buster Posey getting a breather Tuesday
    Buster Posey is not in the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Posey is hitless in 12 career at-bats versus Odrisamer Despaigne, so manager Bruce Bochy thought it would be a good time to get him a breather. Hector Sanchez is behind the dish. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:34 pm

  • Francisco Cervelli leaves with sore wrist
    Francisco Cervelli left Monday's game versus the Royals with right wrist discomfort.

    Advice: Cervelli was hit by a pitch in the wrist and it eventually became too sore, forcing him from the game in the bottom of the seventh. It appears at this point that it's a day-to-day situation. Rotoworld.com Jul 20, 7:57 pm
  • Francisco Cervelli exits with apparent injury
    Francisco Cervelli left Monday's game against the Royals with an apparent injury.

    Advice: It's unclear what happened with Cervelli, but he was visited by the Pirates' trainer in the bottom of the seventh and then walked off the field. The club should have an update on him shortly. Rotoworld.com Jul 20, 7:43 pm
  • Turner's four-hit night goes to waste in loss
    Justin Turner had four hits in as many at-bats, but the Dodgers fell to the Braves on Monday.

    Advice: Turner's four hits, three of which were singles, accounted for nothing as he neither scored a run nor brought one in. The 30-year-old has showed no signs of slowing down as he's hitting an outstanding .323/.389/.545 with 11 home runs and 40 RBI. Rotoworld.com Jul 20, 7:40 pm
