  • Brian Dozier launches 17th homer in victory
    Brian Dozier launched his 17th home run on Friday, leading the Twins to a 2-1 victory over the Red Sox in Boston.

    Advice: Dozier tagged Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez for a solo shot in the second inning, pulling the Twins even at 1-1. He also added a pair of singles, finishing the night 3-for-3 plus a walk. He has been on fire at the plate in recent weeks and is now slashing.249/.335/.466 with 17 homers and 50 RBI on the season.

  • Jace Peterson hits fifth homer
    Jace Peterson hit his fifth homer Friday against the Rockies' Jason Motte.

    Advice: Peterson lost his job early this year and was sent down for a time, but he's been one of the Braves' best players this year, amassing a .743 OPS in 171 at-bats. Of course, with just 17 RBI, 23 runs scored and one steal in his 57 games, he still hasn't been able to do much for fantasy leaguers. That doesn't seem likely to change.

  • Jurickson Profar goes hitless in loss
    Jurickson Profar went 0-for-3 with a HBP on Friday to drop his average under .300 for the first time since his second game of the season.

    Advice: Profar is hitting .229 with just two extra-base hits (both homers) in 83 at-bats since June 11. He could get more consistent playing time now with Prince Fielder done, but the Rangers might get more production from giving those at-bats to Joey Gallo instead. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:26 pm
  • Jean Segura goes deep in loss to Reds
    Jean Segura had a nice night at the dish in Friday's loss to the Reds, going 2-for-3 with a solo home run.

    Advice: Segura got the game started out with a bang, launching a leadoff home run off of Dan Straily. He has been a terrific catalyst atop the D'Backs lineup this season, slashing .314/.359/.451 with eight long balls and 38 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 pm
  • Daniel Murphy leaves the yard in loss Friday
    Daniel Murphy clubbed his 19th home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Nationals past the Padres.

    Advice: Murphy's solo shot in the eighth inning pulled the Nats to within two runs at 5-3, but that would be as close as they would come. He continues to pummel the baseball, slashing .348/.387/.612 with 19 long balls, 70 RBI and three stolen bases in an impressive debut season with the Nats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 pm

  • Juan Uribe leaves game with head contusion
    Juan Uribe is considered day-to-day after leaving Friday's game with a head contusion.

    Advice: Uribe was hit in the helmet by a pitch, but seems to have avoided any type of serious injury. Expect him to return to the lineup at some point before the end of the weekend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:40 pm
  • Brad Miller not in Rays lineup on Friday
    Brad Miller is not in the Rays starting lineup for Friday's showdown against the Mariners.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against his former club with southpaw James Paxton on the hill for the Mariners. The hot-hitting Tim Beckham will start in his place at shortstop and bat seventh for the Rays on Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:44 pm

  • Brett Lawrie (hamstring) set to undergo MRI
    Brett Lawrie (hamstring) will undergo an MRI Friday.

Obviously more will be known about his status when the test results are in. Tyler Saladino is filling in at second base Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:38 pm

  • Matt Duffy (Achilles) nears rehab games
    Matt Duffy (Achilles) is a week away from beginning a rehab assignment.

    Advice: Duffy's recovery from a strained Achilles has come slowly, but he's finally turned a corner. It's unclear how many rehab games he'll need before being activated, but he would seem to be tracking toward an early August return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:35 pm

  • Joe Panik (concussion) experiences setback
    Joe Panik (concussion) didn't play in a scheduled rehab game Thursday because he "didn't feel good," according to Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

    Advice: Bochy didn't specifically say that it was a setback with Panik's concussion symptoms, but it's safe to say that that's the case. At this point it's unclear when the second baseman will resume his rehab assignment. He's been out of commission since late June. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:34 pm

  • Luis Sardinas recalled from Triple-A
    Mariners recalled INF Luis Sardinas from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: He's taking the roster spot of Mike Montgomery, who has been traded to the Cubs. Sardinas is hitting just .190/.215/.286 in the majors this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:13 am
  • Rays receiving inquiries on Steve Pearce
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Rays "are getting some calls" on Steve Pearce and there's a "decent chance he gets moved by the deadline."

    Advice: It makes sense that there would be interest in Pearce, as he's a versatile player who's having a great year with a .322/.393/.522 batting line. He's also owed less than $2 million for the rest of the season before hitting free agency this winter. Crasnick lists the Giants and Indians as clubs that are "among potential fits" for Pearce, with the Mets also a potential possibility. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:57 am

  • Steve Pearce not in Rays lineup Thursday
    Steve Pearce is not in the Rays starting lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: It's just a routine day off for Pearce, who played in two straight games after being activated from the disabled list on Tuesday. Look for him back in his customary cleanup spot in the order on Friday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:04 pm

  • Harrison not in Thursday's lineup
    Josh Harrison is not in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.

    Advice: We haven't heard anything about an injury, so Harrison is presumably getting a day of rest. Adam Frazier will start at second base and bat leadoff against Matt Garza, so he makes for an interesting value play in DFS. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:15 pm

  • Panik (head) plays seven innings at AAA
    Joe Panik (head) played seven innings of second base Wednesday night at Triple-A Sacramento.

    Advice: He also doubled and hit three pop-ups, finishing 1-for-4 in Sacramento's defeat of the Marlins' Triple-A affiliate from New Orleans. Panik remains on track to be activated from the concussion disabled list ahead of Friday night's series opener at Yankee Stadium. He has been on the shelf since June 29.

  • Harrison's daring dash delivers walk-off win
    Josh Harrison tripled and scored on a throwing error in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday, giving the Pirates a 3-2, walk-off win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Harrison crushed a Tyler Thornburg pitch to deep center field and busted it out of the box, thinking triple all the way. The relay throw then skipped past third baseman Hernan Perez, letting Harrison walk home as the winning run. It certainly wasn't the most conventional way to walk off, but the Bucs will take it. The triple was Harrison's fifth of the season, and the second baseman is hitting .270/.299/.373 overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:23 pm

  • Brian Dozier hits 16th home run
    Brian Dozier delivered his 16th homer Tuesday off the Tigers' Bruce Rondon.

    Advice: Dozier has nine homers in 26 games after hitting seven in his first 62. He's been one of the AL's very best players over the last month. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:41 pm
  • Matt Duffy (heel) said he had best day yet
    Matt Duffy (heel) ran Tuesday and called it his best day since landing on the disabled list.

    Advice: He also did some drills. Duffy is working out at the Giants' spring training complex in Arizona and should get going on a minor league rehab assignment before the end of July -- maybe even by early next week. He has been on the disabled list since June 20 because of a left Achilles strain. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:22 pm

    Advice: Panik was supposed to begin his rehab assignment Monday, but that game got rained out. He is still hoping to be activated for Friday's series opener against the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:37 pm

  • Rangers getting 'tons of calls' on Profar
    T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are getting "tons of calls" on Jurickson Profar.

    Advice: The Rangers' biggest need is starting pitching, so the question is whether they'll find anything that motivates them to trade Profar. Sullivan notes that the Rangers have interest in Matt Moore, Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly from the Rays, but that might not be enough to part with Profar. Sullivan also mentions the Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy as a potential target. Profar essentially missed two years due to shoulder issues, but he's still just 23 years old and has impressed with a .318/.366/.455 batting line in 142 plate appearances with the Rangers this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:13 am
  • Steve Pearce (hamstring) activated from DL

  • Murphy inadvertently breaks time with homer
    Daniel Murphy crushed a pinch-hit, game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning of Sunday's 18-inning loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Due to a hamstring injury, Murphy did not start the contest. He was healthy enough to pinch hit, though, and one swing was all it took. When he knotted the score at 1-1 with his solo homer off of Mark Melancon with two outs in the ninth, he probably didn't know the game would stretch on for another nine frames. At 18 innings, it turned out to be the longest game in Nationals history. For the season, Murphy is hitting a superlative .350/.388/.608 with 25 doubles, 18 homers and 67 RBI across 337 at-bats. It is still difficult to see him maintaining that beautiful triple-slash for the next two-and-a-half months, but he has done well enough to maintain it over the first three-and-a-half months, so who knows.

  • Daniel Murphy (hamstring) still sidelined Saturday

  • Josh Harrison goes 0-for-4 in loss on Friday
    Josh Harrison (foot) returned to the Pirates starting lineup on Friday, going 0-for-4 in a losing effort against the Nationals.

  • Dozier homers, drives in two runs in loss
    Brian Dozier homered and knocked in two runs Friday in a losing effort against the Indians.

    Advice: Dozier did all of the damage for the Twins’ offense on Friday, hitting a sacrifice fly in the first inning before adding a solo homer in the fourth. The 29-year-old started July slow after a ridiculous June, but he has now homered in each of his last two games. He has 15 homers on the year and owns a career-best .793 OPS. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:34 pm
  • Daniel Murphy dealing with hamstring soreness
    Daniel Murphy said after Friday's game that he's dealing with left hamstring soreness.
