    Advice: Travis is dealing with an injury on the third knuckle of his right hand. He received a cortisone shot on Tuesday. While he remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels, the 25-year-old second baseman said that his hand is feeling better. He should be able to get back into the lineup over the next few days barring a setback. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:46 pm

    Devon Travis (finger) remains out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Travis received a cortisone injection Tuesday for an issue with the third knuckle on his right hand. It's not clear when he might return. Darwin Barney is starting at second base and batting leadoff on Wednesday versus Angels right-hander Matt Shoemaker. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:42 pm

  • Moncada reaches five times in Tuesday's win
    Red Sox INF prospect Yoan Moncada reached base five times Tuesday in a victory for Double-A Portland.

    Advice: He walked a career-high four times and also slugged a three-run homer. Moncada has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games while raising his average 10 points. The 21-year-old has been a steady source of power and speed with 14 homers and 44 steals this season. A natural second baseman, Moncada can expedite his arrival in the big leagues by making a smooth transition to third. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:08 pm

  • DJ LeMahieu (wrist) sitting again Wednesday
    DJ LeMahieu (wrist) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Brewers.

    Advice: LeMahieu was a late scratch Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation and is apparently still dealing with some discomfort. Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth on Wednesday afternoon against Zach Davies. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:26 am

  • Utley day-to-day with lingering foot issue
    Chase Utley was removed from Tuesday's win over the Giants with a lingering foot issue.

    Advice: Utley didn't actually start the game, but he singled and scored as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning and stayed on for defense in the seventh before leaving in the eighth. "He's been maintenancing his foot for about a month," manager Dave Roberts said late Tuesday night. "That's why we had to get him out of the game. He couldn't stay on his feet any longer. Chase will be day to day." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:08 am
  • Addison Russell cranks two-run homer in win
    Addison Russell went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Russell cranked a two-run home run off Padres starter Christian Friedrich in the fifth inning. The dinger was his 19th of the season. For the campaign as a whole, the 22-year-old shortstop is slashing .251/.336/.445 across 418 at-bats. He has homered in each of his last three games, including a two-homer effort against the Rockies on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Cano singles twice in loss to former team
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: As a team, the Mariners managed just four hits on the evening. Cano was the only player to pick up more than one. The All-Star second baseman is in the midst of a fantastic campaign and is currently slashing .295/.349/.522 with 28 homers and 79 RBI across 508 at-bats. Fantasy second basemen don't get much better than that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Flores hits three-run shot in win over Cards
    Wilmer Flores hit a three-run home run as the Mets bested the Cardinals 7-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Getting a start against a lefty as per usual, Flores turned on an inside fastball in the first inning for the three-run dinger. It was his only hit in the game and Flores' 13th homer of the year. With first base still a big question mark and Flores' ability to hit left-handed pitching, the 25-year-old should continue to draw starts at the less-hot corner going forward. Flores is hitting .259/.315/.447 in 87 games total. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm

  • Perez' two-run triple leads Brewers past Rox
    Hernan Perez hit a two-run triple in the seventh inning to help the Brewers get past the Rockies 6-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: The hit was Perez' only one in four at-bats, but it was a big one. With two outs and an 0-2 count, Perez slashed a Carlos Estevez pitch down the right field line and into the corner, plating both Jonathan Villar and Ryan Braun to give the Brewers a late lead. It was just the latest noteworthy performance for the 25-year-old this year, who's hitting .282/.308/.458 with 11 homers, 43 RBI, 35 runs scored and 23 steals in 87 games played.

  • Dozier homers, scores twice against Tigers
    Brian Dozier went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Dozier hit a solo jack in the fifth inning, his 10th homer this month and 29th of the season. That's seventh-best in the American League, and it's now a single-season high for the 29-year-old. It's shaping up to be a career year on a few different fronts for Dozier, who is batting .268/.341/.536 with 75 RBI, 77 runs scored and 10 steals this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:58 pm
  • Saladino still sidelined by back discomfort
    Tyler Saladino missed a fourth straight start Tuesday due to back soreness.

    Advice: But the 27-year-old infielder did say Tuesday that it's "feeling better." Saladino hasn't appeared in a game for the White Sox since last Thursday. He had been serving as their primary starter at second base with Brett Lawrie (hamstring, quad, knee) on the disabled list. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:56 pm

  • Trea Turner goes 4-for-4 in loss to Orioles
    Trea Turner had three singles and a double in four trips to the plate on Tuesday versus the Orioles.

    Advice: It's the first four-hit night of the youngster's career. He also had a couple would-be stolen bases overturned by instant replay. Turner has stabilized the center field and leadoff spots for the Nationals, as he now sports a .320/.346/.536 batting line with four homers and 14 steals over 36 games.

  • Beckham leaves game with tight hamstring
    Tim Beckham left Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with a tight left hamstring.

    Advice: He was replaced in the lineup by Richie Shaffer before the top of the eighth inning, finishing the night 1-for-3 with a single. Beckham will be reevaluated by the Rays' medical team on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:11 pm

  • Peraza stays hot with two hits, two steals
    Jose Peraza singled twice and stole a pair of bases in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: He's now an incredible 9-for-19 at the plate since being recalled last week. There's not really a spot for Peraza to get regular starts once Zack Cozart (Achilles) is ready, but he's certainly playing well enough to force the Reds to make a tough decision. Perhaps they'll bench Scott Schebler. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:58 pm

    DJ LeMahieu was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation.

  • Devon Travis out Tuesday with knuckle issue
    Devon Travis is out Tuesday due to an issue with the third knuckle on his right hand.

    Advice: Travis received an injection and the Blue Jays are hoping he can return Wednesday. It doesn't sound like anything major. Darwin Barney is starting at second base and batting leadoff Tuesday versus the Angels. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:21 pm

  • Marlins place Dietrich (knee) on 15-day DL
    Marlins placed 2B Derek Dietrich on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion.

    Advice: The move was made retroactive to August 19. It clears a roster spot for Oswaldo Arcia, who was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay. Dietrich was an effective hitter before the All-Star break (.303 AVG in 231 at-bats) but has slumped in the second half by hitting only .195 over his last 77 at-bats.

  • Peraza goes 4-for-6 with three runs scored
    Jose Peraza finished 4-for-6 with three runs scored in the Reds' loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

    Advice: He doubled twice and singled twice, scoring runs in the third, fourth, and sixth innings. Peraza is now 9-for-15 with three RBI and five runs scored since his return to the major leagues on Monday and has lifted his batting average to .301. He's also swiped 10 bases in 36 games. The versatile 22-year-old is capable of continuing to provide sneaky fantasy value down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:50 pm

  • Russell hits pair of solo shots in Colorado
    Addison Russell hit a pair of solo homers Sunday in the Cubs' loss to the Rockies.

    Advice: He got to Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa in both the top of the fifth and the top of the seventh, but Colorado's offense produced 11 runs on 14 hits to take an 11-4 win. Russell finished the day 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored. He's up to 17 homers and 78 RBI for the year. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:20 pm
  • Utley rocks solo home run in win over Reds
    Chase Utley went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Sunday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Utley burned Anthony DeSclafani for a solo shot in the first inning and picked up an RBI single in the third. While the veteran second baseman is slashing a middling .256/.327/.399 this season, he has picked up six two-hit games in his last 10 contests. Utley can still be safely avoided in most fantasy formats, but his recent hot bat makes him an interesting DFS option. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:57 pm
  • Peraza has three hits, homer in return
    Jose Peraza went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Peraza celebrated his return to the Reds -- he had been recalled earlier in the day -- with easily his best game as a major leaguer to date. Also of note, he started at shortstop in the game after working at the position in the minors following his August 2 demotion. There's a reason he was a second baseman coming up through the minors, but if the Reds want to use him at short then more power to them. The added eligibility, should he acquire it, would make him a more interesting player come spring 2017. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:19 pm

  • Travis leads Jays with three hits, two RBI
    Devon Travis went 3-for-5 with two RBI as the Blue Jays edged the Indians 6-5 on Saturday.

    Advice: Travis knocked a two-run single in the second inning to get the Jays on the board, raising his RBI total to 37 in 68 games. The month of August has been good to the 25-year-old, who is now hitting .333 with three homers, 11 RBI and 10 runs this month. Travis has settled in atop the Jays lineup, hitting .298/.331/.473 overall. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:58 pm

  • Tyler Saladino still out with sore back
    Tyler Saladino is dealing with a sore back.

    Advice: Saladino wasn't in Saturday's lineup and it looks like he's iffy for Sunday as well. The 27-year-old has played a utility role for the White Sox this season, appearing at seven different positions. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:56 pm

  • Jose Peraza called back up by Reds Saturday
    Reds recalled INF/OF Jose Peraza from Triple-A Louisville.

    Advice: He's taking the place of Keyvius Sampson on the Reds roster. The speedy utility man has hit .250/.290/.284 with 10 swipes in only 93 plate appearances with the big league club this season. He's unlikely to see enough playing time to become relevant in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:49 am

    Trea Turner went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored as the Nationals topped the Braves 7-6 on Friday evening in Atlanta.

  • Cano cracks solo home run in loss to Angels
    Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Cano whacked a solo home run off Angels starter Matt Shoemaker in the first inning for his lone hit of the game. The dinger was his 27th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 75. The 27 homers are the most he has hit since he launched the same number with the Yankees in 2013. With about a month-and-a-half remaining in the season, the star second baseman needs six more home runs to tie the career-best 33 he notched four seasons ago. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:30 pm
  • Dozier launches 27th homer against Royals
    Brian Dozier hit his 27th home run of the year in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Dozier greeted Royals starter Dillon Gee rudely, homering to lead off the game. Little did Dozier and company know it would be the only run they would get against Gee and the Royals bullpen on the evening. Dozier is riding a nine-game hitting streak during which he's homered five times with 10 RBI and nine runs scored. His speed has disappeared -- Dozier's eight steals would be the lowest of his career -- but everything else is working for the 29-year-old, who's hitting .267/.341/.531 with 73 RBI and 73 runs scored overall. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:45 pm
  • LeMahieu scores three times as Rox best Nats
    DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-3 with a triple, a two-run home run and three runs scored as the Rockies topped the Nationals 6-2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: No one this side of the equator (sorry, that disqualifies you, Michael Phelps) is as hot as LeMahieu these days. The 28-year-old is now hitting .548 (17-for-31) with two home runs, five RBI and eight runs scored during an eight-game hitting streak, running his overall line to .342/.415/.498. LeMahieu is also fourth in the National League with 79 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:05 pm

  • Perez hits 10th homer in loss against Cubs
    Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 with his 10th home run of the season in Tuesday's nightcap against the Cubs.

    Advice: Perez hit what seemed like a meaningless homer with two outs in the ninth inning of a four-run game, but the Brewers put together a small rally to bring the tying run to the plate before Aroldis Chapman snuffed out the comeback attempt. The homer was the 10th for Perez in what is shaping up to be a breakout year for the 25-year-old. He's hitting .286/.312/.456 with 21 steals to go along with those 10 homers.

  • Utley has two HR, five RBI in return to Phila
    Chase Utley enjoyed his return to Philadelphia on Tuesday, launching a solo home run and a grand slam in a win over the Phillies.

    Advice: He took Vincent Velasquez deep in the fifth inning and then smacked a grand slam off of Michael Mariot in the seventh. It was quite a scene in Philly, as the Phillies' fans gave their former star a curtain call after each of his home runs. The veteran second baseman now has 10 longballs on the season and has recorded multiple hits in four of his last six games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:33 pm
  • DJ LeMahieu goes 4-for-4
    DJ LeMahieu had a 4-for-4 night at the plate Monday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Though he lacks the big power stroke, LeMahieu has been awesome at Coors Field this year, hitting .390 with a 24/36 K/BB ratio in 242 plate appearances. On the road, he's at a much more pedestrian, though still respectable, .288 with a 38/16 K/BB ratio in 239 plate appearances. It's just not all about the home run at Coors.

  • Cano slugs two-run homer on Saturday
    Robinson Cano slugged a key two-run homer to lift the Mariners over the Athletics on Saturday.

    Advice: The blast was his 26th of the season. He is batting .294 with 73 RBI and 75 runs scored. His .872 OPS is his best since joining the Mariners in 2014. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 10:23 pm
  • Flores' three hits help Mets win in extras
    Wilmer Flores went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Mets' 3-2, 11-inning win over the Padres on Saturday.

    Advice: Flores was having a good night before he came to the dish with runners on the corners and one out in the 11th inning. The 25-year-old hit a ground ball up the middle that second baseman Ryan Schimpf fielded but threw wide of catcher Christian Bethancourt, allowing the winning run to score and making Flores the hero. With the three-hit night, Flores is batting .255/.309/.434 with 11 homers, 33 RBI and 27 runs scored overall. Rotoworld.com Aug 13, 9:15 pm
