  • Jung Ho Kang not in Pirates lineup Saturday
    Jung Ho Kang is not in the Pirates starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: As well as dealing with some off-field issues, Kang's performance at the plate has fallen off considerably in recent weeks. David Freese is starting in his place at third base on Saturday and will bat fifth against Aaron Nola and the Phillies. Rotoworld.com 52 minutes ago
  • Shawn O'Malley starting at shortstop Saturday
    Shawn O'Malley is starting at shortstop and batting ninth for the Mariners on Saturday.

    Advice: He gets the challenge of facing Jays' knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. With Ketel Marte on the disabled list, the door is open for O'Malley to see some extra time in the infield over the next week or so. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:08 am
  • Mariners place Ketel Marte on 15-day DL
    Mariners placed SS Ketel Marte on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 20, with mononucleosis.

    Advice: Marte has already missed a week of action with the illness, so while they wait on him to get well they'll utilize his roster spot elsewhere. David Rollins was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move to provide bullpen depth. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:20 am

  • Corey Seager goes 4-for-7 against Cards
    Corey Seager went 4-for-7 and knocked in a run against the Cardinals on Friday.

    Advice: Seager didn't hit for the kind of average we were hoping for early on, but he's all of the way up to .307 for the season now. He's batting .331 with 15 homers in his last 66 games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Trevor Story hits 24th homer
    Trevor Story collected his 24th homer Friday against the Braves.

    Advice: Story has now matched Troy Tulowitzki's homer total from his rookie season in 2007. The only shortstops to hit more than 24 as rookies were Nomar Garciaparra (30 in 1997) and Cal Ripken Jr. (28 while splitting time between short and third in 1982). Those two were Rookie of the Year winners. Time will tell is Story will be, too. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • 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
  • Reyes has three hits in win over Marlins
    Jose Reyes filled up the box score Friday against the Marlins by going 3-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored, and a stolen base.

    Advice: Reyes had a double and a pair of singles. He scored on a pair of sacrifice flies by Yoenis Cespedes. This was Reyes’ first three-hit game of the season and his first multi-hit game since July 10. He’s batting .250/.298/.538 overall. The Mets could use more games like this one from him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:52 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

  • Marcus Semien sitting out on Friday
    Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Danny Valencia is also sitting out, as the A's are going with Arismendy Alcantara at shortstop, Yonder Alonso at first base, Khris Davis in the designated hitter spot, Jake Smolinski in center field and Coco Crisp in left. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:46 pm
  • Corey Seager (flu) returns to Dodgers' lineup
    Corey Seager (flu) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Seager missed three days of action with the flu bug, but he's evidently feeling better. He's at shortstop and hitting second against Michael Wacha and the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:28 pm
  • Ketel Marte (mono) headed to disabled list
    Ketel Marte will be placed on the disabled list after being diagnosed with mononucleosis.

    Advice: Now it makes more sense why he's missed a week of action with what had been described as a stomach bug. Marte shouldn't need much more than another week before being activated. Shawn O'Malley and Luis Sardinas will share shortstop in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:02 pm
    15-Day DL

  • 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
  • Bregman in left field again Thursday
    Alex Bregman will start in left field for the second straight Thursday with Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Bregman made his first ever start in left field on Wednesday, as the Astros look ahead to where he could fit in the majors. Of course, the club just signed Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel, who figures to play third base once he's ready for the majors. With the way he's hitting, Bregman figures to make it to the majors first, but the added versatility will help his chances of getting regular at-bats down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:23 pm

  • Kang out of lineup Thursday
    Jung Ho Kang is not in Thursday's lineup versus the Brewers.

    Advice: Kang has completely fallen apart at the plate recently, hitting just .159 with zero homers and a .479 OPS over his last 16 games. David Freese is starting at third base Thursday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:17 pm
  • Padres optioned INF/OF Amarista to AAA
    Padres optioned INF/OF Alexi Amarista to Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: Amarista was sent out with Brett Wallace returning from the paternity leave list. The 27-year-old is batting .239/.299/.261 in 98 plate appearances at the major league level this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:07 pm

  • Bregman notches three hits in left field debut
    Astros SS/3B prospect Alex Bregman smashed three hits while starting in left field Wednesday in a win for Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: The 22-year-old has produced at least two hits in each of his last three games. Playing left field, a position Bregman had never played until Wednesday, is an interesting wrinkle in his development. Bregman is a shortstop by trade but has recently focused on third base because it's his clearest path to the major leagues. Now that Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel has been added to the mix, it might not be a bad idea for Bregman to get comfortable playing the outfield as well. The new top prospect in baseball should make his big league debut later this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:23 am

  • Seager (flu) remains out Thursday vs. Nats
    Corey Seager (flu) remains absent from the Dodgers' lineup Thursday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Seager is still battling that nasty flu bug that seems to be traveling from clubhouse to clubhouse. Chris Taylor will start at shortstop Thursday in Washington, D.C. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:52 am
  • Owings (foot) near return to Diamondbacks
    Chris Owings (foot) is expected to rejoin the Diamondbacks within the next week.

    Advice: Owings played in back-to-back rehab games with Triple-A Reno on Tuesday and Wednesday, going a combined 5-for-9 with a walk, four RBI, and two runs scored. He has been on the disabled list since June 11 due to a flareup of plantar fasciitis in his left foot. The righty-swinging 24-year-old can platoon in center field with lefty Michael Bourn.

  • Corey Seager (flu) remains out Wednesday
    Corey Seager (flu) remains out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Seager is one of the many major leaguers battling a stomach virus. Charlie Culberson will start at shortstop and bat eighth Wednesday versus the Nationals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:43 pm
  • Alex Bregman may start in LF on Wednesday
    Alex Bregman may get a start in left field on Wednesday at Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: He played third base Tuesday for the first time since his promotion from Double-A Corpus Christi. Bregman is adding some versatility while he knocks down the door for a callup to the major leagues. He's batting .312/.413/.601 with 20 home runs and seven stolen bases in 76 games this season between Double-A and Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:17 am

  • Alex Bregman starting at third base at AAA
    Alex Bregman is starting at third base for Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday night.

    Advice: It's his first start at the hot corner since his promotion from Double-A Corpus Christi. Third base is the clear spot for Bregman in Houston with Carlos Correa at shortstop and Jose Altuve at second base. The addition of Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel complicates things long term, but Bregman should beat Gurriel to the major leagues this year. These are good problems to have for Houston.

  • Ketel Marte (ankle, flu) out again Tuesday

  • Corey Seager out Tuesday versus Nationals
    Corey Seager is getting the day off Tuesday.

    Advice: Seager hit three doubles in Sunday's series finale against the Diamondbacks, but he'll take a seat in Tuesday's opener versus the Nationals and rookie right-hander Reynaldo Lopez. Chris Taylor is at shortstop. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:53 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
  • Trevor Story hits 22nd homer in victory
    Trevor Story went 2-for-3 with his 22nd homer and his sixth steal Monday to lead the Rockies to a 7-4 win over the Rays.

    Advice: The homer was a two-run shot off Drew Smyly. He also walked in the contest. Despite his propensity for striking out, he's been very steady at the plate these last couple of months. His OPS stands at .886 and still hasn't fallen below .850 at any point this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:56 pm

  • Reyes gets work in center field
    Jose Reyes got some work in center field over the weekend.

    Advice: Reyes' primary goal is getting more comfortable at third base, but he'll also continuing working in center field just in case. The Mets are also looking at Michael Conforto in center field, so anything is possible in this situation. No word on if Bartolo Colon has been ruled out as an option. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:04 pm

  • Kang hitless as struggles continue
    Jung Ho Kang went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in a loss to the Nationals on Friday.

    Advice: Kang started his season on a high note after making his way back from a torn meniscus and fractured tibia, but he’s batting just .143 (7-for-49) over his last 18 games.

  • Astros prospect Bregman not earning call-up
    Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that the team does not plan on calling up 3B/SS prospect Alex Bregman this weekend.

    Advice: ESPN's Jim Bowden reported on Tuesday that the Astros were "expected" to call up Bregman. That won't be the case unless Hinch and the team do an about face. Hinch wouldn't rule out a call to the bigs for later this season, though. The 22-year-old infield prospect is 14-for-36 (.389) in eight games at Triple-A Fresno since earning a promotion from Double-A. Eight of those 14 hits have either been homers or doubles. Prior to the season, Bregman ranked as MLB.com's No. 22 overall prospect. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:44 pm
