  • Lucroy shows off wheels with RBI triple
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-2 with an RBI triple and three total RBI in Sunday's win over the Reds.

    Advice: Lucroy drove in three of the five runs the Brewers scored in the game, picking up a sacrifice fly in the first inning, an RBI single in the third and an RBI triple in the seventh. The 29-year-old backstop has now been good for at least a pair of triples in each of his last five seasons. He is hitting a sharp .292/.353/.509 with eight homers and 26 RBI over 171 at-bats as the calendar readies to turn over to June. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:10 pm

  • Salvador Perez (quad) to miss 7-10 days
    Salvador Perez (quad) is expected to be sidelined for the next 7-10 days.

    Advice: An MRI on Perez's right quad and knee didn't reveal any structural damage, but he has a bad bruise and is surely very sore after Saturday's collision with Cheslor Cuthbert. The Royals have recalled Tony Cruz and he will share the catching duties with Drew Butera while Perez is on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:49 am

  • Suzuki removed after potential concussion
    Kurt Suzuki left Saturday's game against the Mariners after getting a foul ball to the face mask.

    Advice: The Twins are likely concerned that Suzuki suffered a concussion, but further information should come after the game. Juan Centano replaced the 32-year-old catcher, who was hitting .200/.257/.284 in 106 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:36 pm

  • Russell Martin homers, Jays rally to beat BOS
    Russell Martin homered and drove home three runs on Saturday as the Blue Jays rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Red Sox 10-9 on Saturday.

    Advice: Martin blasted his homer off Rick Porcello in the sixth inning, pulling the Jays to within three runs at 7-4. He added an RBI single as part of a four-run uprising to tie the game in the eighth inning.

  • Salvy Perez diagnosed with quad contusion
    Salvador Perez suffered a quad contusion after a scary collision with third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert on Saturday.

    Advice: It's unclear if Perez will avoid a trip to the disabled list, but this is nonetheless promising news for the Royals, as it appeared in real-time that the 26-year-old catcher suffered a significant knee injury. Now it's just a matter of determining the length of his absence. Perez is hitting .277/.313/.494 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 176 plate appearances in 2016. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:02 pm

  • Perez leaves game with apparent knee injury
    Salvador Perez was helped off the field with an apparent injury to his left knee after colliding with Cheslor Cuthbert.

    Advice: The Royals had already been snakebitten by injury in 2016, but this could spell disaster for the defending World Champs. Perez was hitting .277/.313/.494 with seven homers when he left Saturday's game. Keep tabs on this, as it appeared to be an injury that could force the 26-year-old catcher to miss significant time.

  • Derek Norris hits fifth homer in victory
    Derek Norris went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI and two walks against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    Advice: The Padres need more from Norris, not just so that they can win some games, but also because they want him to drive up his trade value in advance of the deadline. He's hit .224 with four homers in May after finishing April with a .156 average and one homer. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:25 pm

    Advice: Vazquez came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning which cut the Jays lead to 5-4. He has had a rough go of it at the plate this season, slashing a mere .223/.263/.330 with one homer and eight RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:10 pm

  • Hanigan (illness, neck) not starting Thursday
    Ryan Hanigan (illness, neck) is not in the Red Sox's lineup Thursday against the Rockies.

    Advice: He left Wednesday's game with an illness and is also battling neck stiffness. Christian Vazquez will draw another start behind the plate. Blake Swihart, who is starting in left field, will fill in if Vazquez leaves early. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:15 pm
  • Welington Castillo getting day off Thursday
    Welington Castillo will get a day of rest Thursday.

    Advice: Chris Herrmann is starting at catcher and batting sixth in the matinee versus Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole.

  • Blake Swihart triples twice
    Blake Swihart tripled twice and knocked in two runs versus the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Advice: It doesn't look like Brock Holt will return within the next 7-10 days, giving Swihart some more time to establish himself as a long-term left field option for Boston. The team would probably prefer to return him to Triple-A when Holt returns, which would allow him to continue to get his reps in behind the plate, but if he hits, he'll make it a tough decision. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:57 pm
  • Martin goes deep twice in win over Yankees
    Russell Martin finally busted out of his power slump and hit a pair of homers in Wednesday's win over the Yankees.

    Advice: Martin had one extra-base hit, a double, in 136 plate appearances prior to Wednesday, but he took Ivan Nova deep for a solo shot in the sixth and followed up with a two-run homer off Chasen Shreve in the seventh. It's important to note that his neck has hindered his playing time and his overall performance in 2016. Although his neck stiffness won't magically disappear, Wednesday's big performance hopefully will kick off a positive run of play from Martin, who is now only hitting .181/.248/.236 on the season.

  • Ryan Hanigan exits with illness vs Rockies
    Ryan Hanigan was forced out of Wednesday's game against the Rockies due to an illness.

    Advice: Hanigan collected a single in his first at-bat, but was pulled for a pinch-hitting Christian Vasquez in the bottom of the fourth. The Red Sox forwarded that he is dealing with a bit of a bug. Consider him day-to-day. Hanigan is also fighting through a left hand contusion suffered over the weekend. Tough times for the veteran backstop. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:50 pm
  • Buster Posey will get the day off Wednesday
    Buster Posey is not in the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Padres.

    Advice: It's just a standard day of rest for Posey. Trevor Brown will get the start at catcher and bat eighth with the Padres throwing right-hander James Shields. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:22 am

  • Chirinos (forearm) could be ready on June 9?
    Robinson Chirinos (forearm) could be ready for activation from the 60-day disabled list when first eligible on June 9.

    Advice: That comes from beat writer Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Chirinos was given a recovery timetable of 10-12 weeks when he underwent surgery for a broken right ulna on April 11. He'd be coming in two weeks ahead of that. It's a promising injury update for a Rangers team that needs promising injury updates. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:10 pm

  • Stephen Vogt hits fourth homer
    Stephen Vogt had a solo homer and an RBI on an HBP against the Mariners on Monday night.

    Advice: That'll do. The homer off Taijuan Walker in the seventh accounted for the first run of the game for either team, and the HBP in the eighth helped add to Oakland's cushion. Vogt is hitting .252 with four homers this year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:02 pm

  • Salvador Perez's five-hit night paces Royals
    Salvador Perez went 5-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored in Monday's victory over the Twins.

    Advice: It was the first five-hit game of the All-Star catcher's career, and the slow-footed Perez even managed to mix in a triple among his five base knocks. Perez has a modest nine-game hitting streak going, and he's lifted his average from .226 to .270 over that stretch. Rotoworld.com May 23, 9:34 pm

  • Lucroy nets RBI single in low-scoring loss
    Jonathan Lucroy went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Lucroy gave the Brewers an oh-so-brief 1-0 lead with his RBI single off Noah Syndergaard in the top of the first inning. For the season, the 29-year-old backstop is slashing a hearty .287/.352/.473 with eight doubles, six homers and 17 RBI over 150 at-bats. Rotoworld.com May 22, 1:25 pm

    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.

  • Stephen Vogt not in Athletics lineup Saturday
    Stephen Vogt is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Given that it's a day game after a night game and Vogt has been a bit hobbled as of late, it's a good time to give him a rest. Matt McBride will work behind the dish for the A's and bat eighth against Masahiro Tanaka and the Yankees. Rotoworld.com May 21, 9:29 am

  • Blake Swihart recalled from Triple-A
    Red Sox recalled C/OF Blake Swihart from Triple-A Pawtucket.

  • Yan Gomes sitting Thursday against Cincinnati
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Thursday against the Reds.

    Advice: Instead it will be Chris Gimenez behind the plate. It appears to be a simple maintenance day for Gomes, who is hitting just .183. At least Gomes has found his power stroke, homering in three of his last five outings. Rotoworld.com May 19, 1:23 pm
