    Advice: If all goes according to plan, he could return to the Rockies' active roster by the weekend. Hundley has been on the disabled list since May 6 because of a left oblique strain.

    Advice: Ben Zobrist is leading off and playing right field in the Memorial Day game versus Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood. Jason Heyward is in center and hitting second. Rotoworld.com 42 minutes ago
  • Kyle Gibson (shoulder) to return Thursday
    Kyle Gibson (shoulder) is scheduled to return from the disabled list to start Saturday versus the Rays.

    Advice: Gibson allowed just one run and struck out eight batters over 9 1/3 innings in his two-game minor league rehab stint with High-A Fort Myers. But the right-hander will return Thursday to an unsightly 6.10 ERA and he remains a risky fantasy play in any matchup. Phil Hughes is headed to the bullpen to clear a rotation spot.

  • Romo (elbow) will not return before Thursday
    Sergio Romo (elbow) won't be activated from the disabled list before Thursday.

    Advice: Romo experienced some fatigue after making back-to-back rehab appearances last week at Triple-A Sacramento. But it doesn't sound like a major setback, and Romo is actually slated to pitch this Monday and Tuesday at High-A San Jose before possibly returning to the Giants on Thursday. The setup man has been on the disabled list since April 14 with a flexor muscle strain in his right arm. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am

  • White Sox recall J.B. Shuck from AAA level
    White Sox recalled OF J.B. Shuck from Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Shuck will start in center field and bat fifth for the White Sox on Monday afternoon against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey. Shuck is a .262/.311/.332 career hitter in 860 plate appearances at the major league level and can go on being ignored in standard fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:14 am

    Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week.

    Advice: Marte was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 22 with a sprained left thumb. He expects to be activated when first eligible and would seem to be on track to meet that goal. "He’s swinging the bat," Mariners skipper Scott Servais said Sunday. "I think he’s going to hit in the cage with the actual BP thrower (early this week). ... That’ll kind of be the last test. If he gets through that, he’ll be ready to go out on the rehab after." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:29 am

    Denard Span (hip) went 3-for-5 with a homer in his return to the Giants' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: That bruised right hip apparently wasn't too bad. Span is now slashing .268/.358/.363 with two home runs, 19 RBI, and 22 runs scored through 49 games this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:38 am
  • Teixeira (neck) lines out versus Rays
    Mark Teixeira (neck) was retired in his one at-bat in Sunday's win over the Rays.

    Advice: Teixeira has been held out of the Yankees' starting lineup since last Wednesday with renewed discomfort in his neck, but he was able to take batting practice ahead of Sunday's game and entered at first base in the seventh inning before lining out in the eighth. He might be ready to return to full-time duty on Monday. The veteran first baseman is batting .193/.292/.280 in 43 games this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:35 am

  • Ryan Braun dealing with neck stiffness
    Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup for the second straight day Sunday due to neck stiffness/soreness.

    Advice: Add another injury to the list. Braun has also battled back and wrist injuries this season and has played just six out of the last 14 games. He's been outstanding when healthy, batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs. Braun's name keeps popping up in trade rumors, but his inability to stay on the field could hurt his market.

  • Ryan Braun (back) sitting out again Sunday
    Ryan Braun (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's missed two straight games and eight out of the last 14 contests with a variety of ailments. His back has been the most recent reason for his absence, so that's presumably why he's sitting again Sunday. Braun has been a beast this season when healthy, hitting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs, but he's had some trouble staying on the field. Alex Presley is in left field Sunday.

  • Braun is 'hot name out there' on trade market
    Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe was told by a National League scout that Ryan Braun is "the hot name out there" on the trade market.

    Advice: Braun is in the first year of a five-year, $105 million extension, but that no longer looks a deal-killer given that he's batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs this season. The scout told Cafardo that he thought the Astros, Cardinals, Red Sox, Phillies, Mets, Giants, and White Sox were potential landing spots for Braun. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:10 am

    Buster Posey hit a pair of three-run home runs as the Giants outlasted the Rockies 10-5 on Saturday.

    Advice: Posey took Rockies starter Eddie Butler deep in the first inning before adding a second, three-run blast in the eighth. The two-homer game was his first of 2016, giving him seven bombs and 24 RBI overall. Posey is batting .268/.328/.470 through 45 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:34 pm
  • Dexter Fowler's leadoff home run sparks Cubs
    Dexter Fowler blasted a leadoff home run on Saturday, sparking the Cubs offense in a 4-1 victory over the Phillies.

  • Denard Span (hip) scratched from lineup
    Denard Span was scratched from the Giants starting lineup on Saturday due to a bruised right hip.

    Advice: Span is still dealing with a bit of soreness from crashing into the outfield wall earlier in the week, so manager Bruce Bochy felt he could get him a day off now that Hunter Pence had returned. Span should be back in the lineup on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:55 am
  • Mark Teixeira unlikely to return on Sunday
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Saturday that he doesn't expect Mark Teixeira (neck) to return on Sunday.

    Advice: While he won't be ready on Sunday, Teixeira is inching close to a return and could rejoin the Bombers lineup on Monday. He has been sidelined since experiencing renewed discomfort in his neck on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:47 am

  • Ryan Braun not in Brewers lineup on Saturday
    Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

    Advice: Braun has battled a variety of ailments already this season, so giving him a breather to keep him fresh isn't a terrible idea, especially after he looked especially spry on Friday night with a pair of stolen bases. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he misses a juicy matchup against Alfredo Simon. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:09 am

  • Piscotty slugs grand slam in win over Nats
    Stephen Piscotty launched a grand slam in a 6-2 win over the Nationals on Friday.

  • Will Smith (knee) nearing activation from DL
    Will Smith (knee) is expected to make back-to-back appearances with Triple-A Colorado Springs before being activated from the disabled list.

    Advice: He's already made two scoreless appearances for High-A Brevard County, striking out four over three innings. It's looking like Smith could be activated early next week if he can get a couple games under his belt over the weekend. Working his way back from an LCL tear in his right knee, Smith isn't a bad roster stash for those mining for saves. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:19 am

  • Braun connects for ninth homer against Braves
    Ryan Braun hit his ninth home run of the year in Thursday's win over the Braves.

    Advice: Braun belted a solo shot off Braves starter Matt Wisler in the fifth inning. He continues to produce when on the field, owning a .361/.427/.599 line with 30 RBI and 23 runs scored in 39 games. Staying between the white lines has been the tricky part, but his back seems to be feeling better and he should be ridden hard by fantasy owners while in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:07 pm

  • Ryan Braun leaves after rain delay
    Ryan Braun left Thursday's game against the Braves for precautionary reasons.

    Advice: He never came back after a one-hour, 19-minute rain delay in the seventh inning. It doesn't look like Braun is injured but after missing time with back and wrist injuries earlier this month, the Brewers weren't taking any chances. Braun went 1-for-3 with a solo home run before exiting. Kirk Nieuwenhuis replaced him in left field. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:03 pm

    Advice: He's expected to miss the next three games, including Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Blue Jays.

  • Evan Gattis homers, doubles in victory
    Evan Gattis had a two-run homer and a double to help the Astros edge the Orioles 4-3 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gattis made his second start of the year at catcher in this one. He's 11-for-31 with four homers since returning from the minors on May 16, so whether he's catching or DHing, he's going to be in the starting lineup most of the time for the foreseeable future.

  • Mark Teixeira (neck) will have cortisone shot
    Mark Teixeira is scheduled to receive a cortisone shot for his renewed neck discomfort.

    Advice: He was in the original lineup, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy ultimately elected to give the 32-year-old outfielder a day off for the matinee game versus the Padres. Span should be fine to return to action for Friday's series opener at Coors Field. Gregor Blanco is starting in center field Wednesday and Kelby Tomlinson is playing left.

  • Span scratched from the Giants' lineup Wed.
    Denard Span has been scratched from the Giants' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Padres.

    Ryan Braun hit his eighth home run of the season as the Brewers edged the Braves 2-1 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Braun took Julio Teheran deep in the fourth inning for a solo bomb, one of just three hits on the night against the Braves starter. It was his first home run since returning to the lineup after missing nearly a week with a sore back. When he's been in the lineup, Braun has been an offensive beast, batting .357/.419/.579 with eight homers, 29 RBI and 22 runs scored overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:38 pm

  • Will Smith (knee) ready for rehab assignment
    Will Smith (knee) will join High-A Brevard County to begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday.

    Advice: Smith suffered a torn LCL in his right knee late in spring training, losing out on an opportunity to open the 2016 season as the Brewers' closer. Jeremy Jeffress took that job and has run away with it, boasting a 2.37 ERA in 19 innings and 11 saves in 12 attempts. Smith, who had a 2.70 ERA and 91 strikeouts in 63 1/3 innings last year, still makes for a decent stash in fantasy leagues with deeper rosters. Rotoworld.com May 23, 6:22 am

  • Posey punishes Lester with two-run homer
    Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

    Advice: Posey boosted the Giants to a 4-1 lead with his third-inning homer against Cubs starter Jon Lester. They would tack on one more run in the frame to take a 5-1 lead. Two late runs by the Cubs were not enough to topple that deficit. For the season, Posey is hitting .274/.327/.438 with nine doubles, five homers and 17 RBI over 146 at-bats.

    Ketel Marte's X-rays came back negative.

    Advice: He sprained his thumb sliding into second Saturday against the Reds. Marte is hoping to return in a few days, though the club doesn't sound as optimistic.

  • Marte swipes two bags in win over Reds
    Ketel Marte went 1-for-3 with two stolen bases in Saturday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Marte singled to lead off the fifth inning before stealing second and eventually third base off the battery of John Lamb and Tucker Barnhart. The stolen bases were his fourth and fifth of the season after he stole eight in 57 games with the club last season.

Saturday's two-hit, two-walk games leaves his overall line at .335/.406/.521 with five homers, 25 RBI and 31 runs scored.

    Advice: Piscotty had a pair of RBI doubles in the high-scoring affair. His hot hitting has caused Cardinals manager Mike Matheny to take note, as the skipper moved Piscotty to cleanup for Thursday's contest. If he sticks there, it should mean more RBI opportunities for the 25-year-old. Piscotty is batting .329/.390/.516 with 25 RBI and 29 runs scored through 40 games. Rotoworld.com May 19, 9:32 pm
