  • Carlos Correa goes 3-for-5, hits fourth homer
    Carlos Correa went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI in the Astros' 16-4 rout of the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Correa was due to bust out with one of these; since hitting two home runs on April 6 he had remained quiet, going 23 straight games without a homer. There was no way American League pitchers were going to keep him down for much longer. He's back up to .276/.388/.469 for the year now. Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Astros recall Marisnick from Triple-A Fresno
    Astros recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Marisnick saw 10 at-bats in April, but the Astros optioned him to Triple-A at the end of the month after he managed just one hit (and six strikeouts) in his limited action. Still just 25, Marisnick slashed .236/.281/.383 with nine homers, 36 RBI, and 24 steals across 339 at-bats last season at the major league level. He won't see regular playing time, but if he can carve out a niche for himself, he at least makes for a speed option off the bench for fantasy owners in chasm-deep AL-only leagues. Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Jose Altuve hits eighth home run
    Jose Altuve went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI versus the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: That's eight homers in 106 at-bats for Altuve. In 2014, he had seven homers in 660 at-bats. He currently has five more extra-base hits (21) than he does strikeouts (16). Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Jason Castro homers, knocks in four
    Jason Castro went 2-for-3 with a homer, four RBI and two walks versus the Twins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Castro was hitting .175/.299/.263 with no homers through Monday's action. Now he has two homers in two days, and he's upped his RBI total from two to seven. Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • John Ryan Murphy goes 0-for-4
    John Ryan Murphy went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Wednesday, leaving him 3-for-40 on the season.

    Advice: At least the Twins pitchers had been performing much better with Murphy catching than with Kurt Suzuki behind the plate, well, at least until they gave up 16 runs in this one. The Twins might opt to send down Murphy to give him a chance to sort through his offensive struggles in the minors. Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Martin hits walk-off against the Rangers
    Russell Martin looped a walk-off single over the head of Nomar Mazara in right field to secure a 4-3 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Martin took reliever Tony Barnette to deep right field with the bases loaded to plate the winning run. It's been a difficult season for the 33-year-old catcher, as he's dealt with neck stiffness that has kept him from playing everyday and has hindered his abilities at the plate. He's hitting .169/.241/.183 and has just one extra-base hit all year, though his walk-off single would've been a double in any other situation. Yesterday, 7:25 pm
  • Castellanos collects two hits in loss
    Nick Castellanos was the only Tigers' hitter with multiple hits in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Tigers, going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.

    Advice: It was an uninspiring night at the plate for the entire Tigers' ballclub, as Corey Kluber carved them up in a five-hit shutout. Still, Castellanos continued his hot start to the season with a couple base hits. He now boasts a .378/.385/.589 slash line in 96 plate appearances. Yesterday, 5:57 pm
  • Blackmon notches single, double in win
    Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-3 with a double in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Blackmon missed a large chunk of April with a toe injury, but since his return to the lineup at the end of the month, he already has three two-hit games. Wednesday's double was his third of the season. While he is slashing a middling .240/.321/.400 through his first 50 at-bats, those numbers figure to rise as he re-acclimates to regular playing time. Last season, he hit .287/.347/.40 while cracking 17 homers, driving in 58 runs and swiping 43 bases. Yesterday, 3:25 pm
  • Bryce Harper slugs 10th home run of 2016
    Bryce Harper slugged his 10th home run of the season on Wednesday afternoon against the Royals.

    Advice: Harper opened the game's scoring in the top of the first inning with an RBI single to center field, kicking off a six-run frame for the visiting Nats. The 2015 National League MVP then went deep off Dillon Gee for a solo shot in the top of the fifth inning. He's sporting a 1.021 OPS on the season, even after wading through a mini slump last week. Yesterday, 2:25 pm
  • Brock Holt sits against Carlos Rodon
    Brock Holt is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest with the White Sox.

    Advice: Holt will sit against opposing southpaw starter Carlos Rodon. In his place, Chris Young earns a start in left field. Young is hitting sixth. This is nothing new for Holt. He has seen just nine at-bats all season against left-handed pitchers. Yesterday, 1:35 pm

  • Matt Carpenter getting day off Wednesday
    Matt Carpenter is getting a day off Wednesday.

    Advice: Ruben Tejada will start at third base and Aledmys Diaz will serve as the Cardinals' leadoff man. Carpenter is sitting on a .235/.372/.418 slash line in 27 games. Yesterday, 11:52 am
  • LeMahieu getting day off Wednesday vs. SD
    DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: LeMahieu has leveled off somewhat after his scorching start to the 2016 season and will take a day of mental and physical rest on Wednesday with the Rockies wrapping up a series in San Diego. Cristhian Adames is starting at second base and batting ninth in the matinee game versus Padres right-hander Cesar Vargas. Yesterday, 10:29 am
  • Markakis (family emergency) out Wednesday
    Nick Markakis is out of the Braves' starting lineup on Wednesday due to a family emergency.

    Advice: Markakis has been excused from the club to travel back to his home in Maryland, though he's expected to return for the Braves' weekend series against the Diamondbacks. Atlanta has a scheduled day off Thursday. Yesterday, 8:07 am
  • Blackmon cracks first homer of season
    Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Blackmon led off the contest with a solo home run against Padres starter Andrew Cashner in the top of the first inning. The dinger was his first of the 2016 campaign. A toe injury sidelined him for two weeks in April, but he has legitimate fantasy upside now that he is back in action. Last season, the 29-year-old outfielder slashed .287/.347/.450 with 17 homers, 58 RBI and 43 steals. A 20-20 season is not out of the question if he can maintain his health over the coming months. Tuesday, 10:12 pm
  • Rendon gets on the board with first '16 homer
    Anthony Rendon hit his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Rendon, the second batter of the game, took Royals starter Chris Young deep to start the scoring. It was a much-needed blast for the 25-year-old, who hasn't hit with much authority this season after missing most of 2015 with various injuries. Rendon has just two RBI to go with his one homer and he's hitting a rather pedestrian .240/.307/.317 despite batting high in one of the league's better lineups. Tuesday, 10:10 pm
  • Seager busts game open with three-run homer
    Kyle Seager went 2-for-4 with a three run home run in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the A's.

    Advice: The Mariners already held a 5-1 lead when Seager strolled to the plate to face reliever Marc Rzepczynski with two runners on and nobody out in the eighth inning. He essentially put it out of reach with one swing of the bat, clocking a three-run home run to send the Oakland faithful home in a dour mood. Through his first 94 at-bats, Seager is slashing just .181/.274/.436 with five doubles, six homers and 17 RBI. The sky might be brightening, though, as Seager has notched three doubles, two homers and seven RBI over his last four games. Tuesday, 10:00 pm
  • John Ryan Murphy exited from Monday's game
    John Ryan Murphy was ejected from Monday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Murphy was tossed after arguing balls and strikes while catching. He went 0-for-1 with a walk before being replaced by Kurt Suzuki behind the plate. Monday, 7:01 pm
  • Castellanos homers, drives in four in win
    Nick Castellanos went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and four total RBI in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Twins.

    Advice: The Twins actually held a 5-2 lead entering the sixth inning (such things do occur on occasion), at which point Castellanos cracked a three-run home run off starter Ricky Nolasco to tie the game at 5-5. Jarrod Saltalamacchia would provide the go-ahead RBI in the eighth inning as the Tigers improved to 14-10. For his part, Castellanos is hitting a cool .361/.371/.590 with four homers, 18 RBI and five doubles over 83 at-bats. He has accumulated eight hits over his last four games, with homers in two of his last three. Sunday, 3:09 pm
  • Seager goes deep in win over Royals
    Kyle Seager launched fifth home run of the season off Yordano Ventura in Saturday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Seager capped off a huge four-run first inning for the Mariners with a three-run blast. He followed it up with a double and a walk later in the game, making it a very productive night overall. The 28-year-old is only hitting .159/.266/.378 on the year but his .129 BABIP is by far the worst in the majors among qualified players. Expect his performance to skyrocket in the coming months, as that batted-ball luck sorts itself out. Saturday, 10:25 pm
  • Martin not ready to play back-to-back games
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Russell Martin (neck) isn't ready to play in back-to-back games yet.

    Advice: He's been battling neck stiffness for the past week. "He's not 100% that's for sure," said Gibbons. "He's gutting it out, really is what he's doing. But you can tell he's favouring it." Josh Thole is getting the start Saturday but Martin should be back behind the plate Sunday with Marcus Stroman on the mound. Saturday, 1:19 pm
  • Russell Martin not in Jays lineup Saturday
    Russell Martin is not in the Blue Jays starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.

    Advice: Martin has been battling a stiff neck off and on for the past week, so he'll take a seat again on Saturday. Josh Thole will get the start behind the dish on Saturday and will bat ninth against opposing right-hander Chris Archer. Saturday, 11:18 am
  • Rockies activate Charlie Blackmon from DL
    Rockies activated OF Charlie Blackmon from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Blackmon missed two weeks of action with a toe injury but is back at his regular spot atop the Rockies lineup on Friday. Prior to his injury, Blackmon was hitting just .185/.241/.333 with no homers and three RBI in his first eight games. Friday, 3:38 pm
  • Matt Carpenter can't find hit in shutout loss
    Matt Carpenter went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: As a team, the Cardinals managed just three hits on the evening, so Carpenter shouldn't feel too bad for his struggles. He is slashing .241/.394/.456 with three homers, four doubles, a pair of triples and 16 RBI over hits first 79 at-bats. Thursday, 9:16 pm
  • Markakis enjoys four-hit night versus Red Sox
    Nick Markakis went 4-for-5 with three RBI in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

    Advice: Markakis had a two-run single in the second inning before notching another RBI single two innings later. Playing for the Braves, Markakis has gone largely unnoticed this season, but all the veteran has done is bat .305/.412/.439 with 11 doubles, 19 RBI and nine runs scored. He's likely to be one of the few bright spots for the Braves this season. Thursday, 8:10 pm
  • Holt not in Thursday's lineup
    Brock Holt is not in Thursday's lineup against the Braves.

    Advice: Chris Young will make the start in left field despite right-hander Jhoulys Chacin on the mound. Holt is batting just .188/.293/.229 over his last 14 games. Thursday, 1:23 pm

  • Anthony Rendon getting day off Thursday
    Anthony Rendon is getting the day off Thursday.

    Advice: Stephen Drew will start at third base and bat seventh versus Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. It's just a day of rest for Rendon, who's off to a sluggish start. Thursday, 9:12 am
  • Jose Altuve homers, doubles twice in win
    Jose Altuve homered, doubled twice and scored three times Wednesday as the Astros topped the Mariners 7-4.

    Advice: Altuve has been a fantasy dynamo with his .330 average, six homers, 20 runs, 13 RBI and nine steals in 22 games in what amounts to one-seventh of a season. He has more homers this year than he did in 626 at-bats in 2013. Even in 2014, he had just seven homers in 660 at-bats. Thursday, 12:11 am
  • Russell Martin (neck) back in the Jays lineup
    Russell Martin (neck) is back in the Blue Jays' batting order Wednesday night against the White Sox.

    Advice: Martin has been in and out of the Toronto lineup because of a stiff neck. It's nothing serious. The veteran catcher is off to a rough start this season, slashing just .154/.237/.173 in 17 games played. He'll try to get it going against Chicago lefty Jose Quintana. Wednesday, 12:37 pm
  • Blackmon (toe) to play nine innings at High-A
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) is scheduled to play nine innings of center field Wednesday with High-A Modesto.

    Advice: Blackmon went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his rehab debut on Tuesday, but the Rockies are more worried about his turf toe than any offensive results and he reported no physical issues during or after the game. Blackmon should be ready to rejoin Colorado's active roster this weekend if his toe continues to hold up. He's been on the shelf since April 13. Wednesday, 9:52 am
  • Jose Altuve walks twice in depressing loss
    Jose Altuve went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: The Astros offense was nowhere to be found on Tuesday, with the team logging just three hits total against Nathan Karns and company. In addition to his two walks, Altuve also struck out once. The diminutive second baseman has done everything in his power to try to spark the team's winning ways from 2015 and is hitting .313/.412/.602 with five homers, 11 RBI and nine steals over 85 at-bats. Despite all of that happiness, the Astros sit at just 6-15. Tuesday, 11:34 pm
  • Russell Martin (neck) sitting again Tuesday
    Russell Martin (neck) will sit again Tuesday.

    Advice: And he might also sit out Wednesday ahead of Thursday's scheduled off day, but manager John Gibbons said he is not expected the absence to go on longer than that. Martin has been dealing with some neck stiffness. Josh Thole is behind the plate Tuesday versus the White Sox. Tuesday, 1:21 pm
  • Kyle Seager hits fourth homer
    Kyle Seager hit his fourth homer of the year Monday off the Astros' Doug Fister.

    Advice: Seager is still hitting just .141, but his slump might be nearing its end. It's not like he's been striking out a ton or struggling to hit for power... he should be just fine. Monday, 10:35 pm
  • Russell Martin (neck) out again Monday night
    Russell Martin (neck) is out again Monday versus the White Sox.

    Advice: Martin has been battling some neck stiffness and the Blue Jays don't want the minor issue to turn into something major. Consider the veteran catcher day-to-day. Josh Thole is filling in and batting ninth. Monday, 12:34 pm
  • Astros option Jake Marisnick to AAA Fresno
    Astros optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Marisnick was off to a dreadful 1-for-10 start this year in Houston, with six strikeouts and one walk in 12 games. He's better off getting regular playing time on the farm as he tries to work his way out of this early-season slump. Marisnick, 25, is buried on the Astros' talented outfield depth chart. Monday, 6:04 am
