  • Jackie Bradley optioned to Triple-A
    Red Sox optioned OF Jackie Bradley to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Bradley has gone hitless in 11 at-bats in the majors this season. He has nothing left to prove in the minors, but the Red Sox simply have better options for their outfield at the moment.

  • Red Sox promote outfielder Rusney Castillo
    Red Sox recalled OF Rusney Castillo from Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Castillo is batting eighth Friday and starting in right field, where he should be a regular for the Red Sox most days going forward. The Cuban defector has dealt with a few injuries since spring training, but he batted .293/.341/.440 with two homers, 10 RBI and six stolen bases at Pawtucket to earn the promotion. His power/speed combo makes him worth starting in fantasy lineups right away.

  • Marcus Semien getting a breather Friday
    Marcus Semien is not in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

    Advice: New A's coach Ron Washington is putting Semien through drills prior to Friday's game as he seeks to improve the youngster's defense, so it's no surprise he's not in the lineup. Andy Parrino is handling shortstop.

  • Yasiel Puig (hamstring) 'feeling much better'
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is "feeling much better" and it "may not be that much longer" before he returns.

    Advice: Puig was shut down just over a week ago after having a setback with his left hamstring during his rehab assignment, but he's evidently made nice progress since then. The Dodgers have yet to reveal when the outfielder will re-start the rehab assignment, but it sounds like it could happen shortly.

    Today, 9:18 am
  • Braves inquired on catcher Jonathan Lucroy
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Braves inquired on Jonathan Lucroy but were told he was not available.

    Advice: The Brewers are going to be sellers prior to the trade deadline, but one guy they appear intent on keeping is Lucroy, who is under team control cheaply through 2017. Heyman adds that the Braves have been "disappointed" by the play of Christian Bethancourt, who is batting just .190/.215/.286 and hasn't been as good as expected defensively.

  • Yan Gomes (knee) to be activated Sunday
    Yan Gomes (knee) will be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

    Advice: He will start the series finale versus the Reds. Gomes will be catching a full nine innings for the first time on his rehab assignment on Friday, and the Indians will be careful with him initially upon his return, not playing him in back-to-back games. Brett Hayes had been filling in as the club's backup catch and will be sent down on Sunday.

  • Albert Pujols (hand) hopes to play Friday
    Albert Pujols (hand) hopes to play Friday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Pujols was hit in the lower part of his left hand by a pitch on Wednesday. He's still dealing with some swelling and is having some trouble gripping the bat, but already has felt some improvement.
    Yesterday, 1:58 pm
  • Pujols (hand) not in Angels' lineup Thursday
    Albert Pujols (hand) is not in the Angels' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Pujols was hit on the lower part of his left hand Wednesday by a Drew Hutchison pitch. X-rays showed no fractures, but he still has some soreness and bruising. Marc Krauss will start at first base and bat second Thursday in Toronto. Mike Trout will bat third.
    Yesterday, 12:29 pm
  • Cervelli (head) goes 0-for-4 in return Wed.
    Francisco Cervelli (head) went 0-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout in his return Wednesday.

    Advice: Cervelli was pulled from Tuesday's game after taking a foul tip off his mask, but he ultimately showed no concussion symptoms. The 29-year-old catcher is batting .286/.348/.352 in 31 games this season for the Pirates.
    Yesterday, 6:09 am
  • Pujols 'OK', day to day with hand contusion
    Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Albert Pujols is "OK" and will be day to day with a bruised hand.

    Advice: Dipoto added that there are no fractures or broken bones in Pujols' left hand or wrist. Pujols may sit out Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, but he should avoid a disabled list stint. He got struck with a Drew Hutchinson pitch on Wednesday night.
    Wednesday, 8:22 pm
  • Pujols undergoing tests on left hand, wrist
    Albert Pujols underwent tests on his left hand and wrist Wednesday night.

    Advice: The first baseman was hit by a Drew Hutchison pitch in the hand and wrist area during Wednesday's game, eventually necessitating his exit. The immediate diagnosis from the Angels was a left hand contusion, but that doesn't appear to be the end of the story. Reports had Pujols leaving the ballpark with a cast on his wrist. The results of Wednesday's tests, and Pujols' prognosis going forward, should be known Thursday.
    Wednesday, 7:07 pm
  • Pujols diagnosed with left hand contusion
    Albert Pujols has been diagnosed with a left hand contusion.

    Advice: It's a fortunate diagnosis, as it certainly seemed possible something was broken after he was hit by a Drew Hutchison pitch. It sounds like he'll only miss a day or two, but more should be known Thursday.
    Wednesday, 5:42 pm
  • Farrell: Rusney Castillo callup not imminent
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that a Rusney Castillo promotion is not imminent.

    Advice: Castillo is currently in Miami for the birth of his child and Farrell indicated Tuesday that the Cuban outfielder could report to the Red Sox rather than head back to Triple-A Pawtucket, but that idea has apparently been nixed. Castillo will be back in the PawSox lineup on Thursday. He's batting .304/.355/.449 with two homers and six stolen bases in 17 games at Pawtucket.
    Wednesday, 1:33 pm
  • Francisco Cervelli (head) back in action Wed.
    Francisco Cervelli (head) is back in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: He exited Tuesday's game after taking a foul tip off his mask, but he went through a battery of tests and had no concussion symptoms. Cervelli is hitting .297/.355/.366 with nine RBI this season.
    Wednesday, 12:52 pm
  • Yan Gomes (knee) could return on Sunday
    Yan Gomes (knee) could be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

    Advice: Gomes will catch his first full game on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus on Friday. The likelihood is that he'll then join the Indians Saturday before being activated and playing on Sunday. Gomes is not expected to play in back-to-back games right away, as the Indians want to ease him back into things after he missed over a month with a right MCL sprain.

  • Lind blasts seventh homer in win over Tigers
    Adam Lind homered in a 2-for-5 effort as the Brewers took down the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lind hit the second of back-to-back-to-back home runs in the third inning against Anibal Sanchez. Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez hit the other two. Lind entered the game in a rut, going 2-for-24 over his last eight games. Nevertheless, he's still batting .295/.387/.543 with seven home runs and 19 RBI.
    Tuesday, 6:53 pm
  • Donaldson homers, but Jays fall to Angels
    Josh Donaldson accounted for both Blue Jays runs in Tuesday's loss to the Angels, going 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a solo home run.

    Advice: Donaldson put the Jays on top early with a first-inning home run against Hector Santiago. He broke a 1-1 tie in the fifth with a sacrifice fly. He was batting leadoff for just the third time this season. Donaldson is hitting .316/.382/.551 with nine home runs and 28 RBI.
    Tuesday, 6:42 pm
  • Cervelli exits after taking foul tip off mask
    Francisco Cervelli left Tuesday's game against the Twins after taking a foul tip off his mask.

    Advice: The Pirates are saying his exit was precautionary, so it doesn't sound like there are any concussion concerns. Cervelli might get a day of rest Wednesday, though.
    Tuesday, 6:28 pm
  • Farrell hints that Castillo could be up soon
    Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated Tuesday that Rusney Castillo could be promoted soon.

    Advice: Castillo is currently in Miami for the birth of his child, and Farrell hinted that the outfielder could be recalled by the big club after that rather than report back to Triple-A Pawtucket. "What's taken place is his timing, his ability to impact the baseball is starting to show up a little bit more," said Farrell. "He's returned home obviously for the birth of his child. That's going to be a couple of days. Whether or not we allow him to get a game under his belt at Pawtucket before possibly looking at a change here, those are all possibilities." Castillo has dealt with a few injuries since spring training, but he's healthy now and has hit .304/.355/.449 with two homers and six steals for Pawtucket. He figures to see the lion's share of playing time in right field upon his recall and should be scooped up now in any fantasy leagues where he might be available.
    Tuesday, 4:54 pm
  • Everth Cabrera (foot) could be back Friday
    Everth Cabrera (foot) could be activated from the 15-day disabled list this Friday.

    Advice: Cabrera has been out since May 7 because of a bone bruise in his left foot. He began a minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Norfolk this past weekend. J.J. Hardy is back on the Orioles' active roster, so Cabrera will be a utility infielder when he returns.
    Tuesday, 1:38 pm
  • Marisnick getting night off Tuesday vs. OAK
    Jake Marisnick is not in the Astros' lineup Tuesday.

    Advice: Marisnick got off to a terrific start this season, but he's batting just .156/.170/.178 over his last 13 games. He'll take a day of mental rest as Colby Rasmus plays center field and Preston Tucker starts in left against A's right-hander Sonny Gray.
    Tuesday, 1:22 pm
  • Morse batting seventh Tuesday
    Michael Morse will bat seventh Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Justin Bour got the start at first base, but Morse is back in there against Jeremy Hellickson. However, new Marlins manager Dan Jennings clearly wants to see him get it going before he considers putting him back near the middle of the order. The 33-year-old is batting just .208 with two home runs and a .553 OPS so far this season.

    4:10 pm vs x Bal
  • Yan Gomes (knee) could return soon
    Yan Gomes (knee) will catch seven innings on Wednesday during his rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: That's after he catches five frames on Monday. Obviously the Indians will want him to go nine innings before considering activating him, but manager Terry Francona said it won't be necessary for Gomes to catch back-to-back games. He's expected back pretty soon. "We understand that especially being a catcher, he's not going to be built up to where you can start playing him back-to-back," Francona said. "As long as he's healthy, we can activate him. Having him catch three times a week is better than not. We have to make sure he's completely healthy, so he can play the game."

  • Donaldson batting leadoff for Jays on Monday
    Josh Donaldson is in the leadoff spot for the Blue Jays on Monday afternoon against the Angels.

    Advice: It's only his second time hitting leadoff for Toronto. Jose Bautista will bat second, Edwin Encarnacion will bat third, and Russell Martin is at cleanup against Anaheim left-hander C.J. Wilson. Donaldson has an impressive .307/.379/.527 slash line in 39 games with the Jays.
    Monday, 7:33 am
  • Jake Marisnick not in Astros lineup Saturday
    Jake Marisnick is not in the Astros starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It's just a routine day of rest for the outfielder who has struggled in recent weeks. Preston Tucker is starting in left field and batting fifth with Colby Rasmus manning center field.
    Saturday, 12:29 pm
  • Christian Yelich not in lineup on Saturday
    Christian Yelich is not in the Marlins starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Braves.

    Advice: It doesn't appear to be anything more than a day of rest for the struggling Yelich against opposing left-hander Alex Wood. Since returning from the disabled list, he's just 4-for-25 (.160) with nine strikeouts. Ichiro Suzuki will draw the start in left field and hit sixth for the Fish.
    Saturday, 7:07 am
  • Michael Morse not in Marlins lineup Saturday
    Michael Morse is not in the Marlins starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the struggling first baseman. Jeff Baker will get the start in his place and bat fifth against Braves southpaw Alex Wood.

  • Pujols hits first inning homer off Chen
    Albert Pujols hit a solo home run off of Wei-Yin Chen in Friday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: The home run would be Pujols only hit in a well-pitched game. The veteran slugger finished 1-for-4. After a hot start to the season, Pujols has cooled off to a .232/.287/.408 line. He's hit six home runs and has driven in 14 while scoring 16 runs.
    Friday, 6:57 pm
  • Cervelli drives in four runs in wild game
    Francisco Cervelli was 3-for-6 with four RBI in Friday's extra-innings loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: If you saw Cervelli cashing in four RBI at any point this season, get thee to a lottery ticket. He came into the game with four driven in for the entire season and left with the total doubled. Three of those RBI came via a bases clearing double in the sixth inning, but it was Cervelli's game-tying, ninth-inning RBI single off of Hector Rondon with two outs that proved to be one of the most dramatic hits in a game that saw the Cubs blow a 7-1 fifth-inning lead before they ultimately came back to win it in the bottom of the 12th.
    Friday, 4:28 pm
  • Yan Gomes to catch three innings Friday
    Yan Gomes (knee) will catch three innings on Friday for Class-A Lake County and will DH on Saturday.

    Advice: Gomes is recovering from a right MCL sprain. He's been rehabbing well and assuming there are no hiccups in the minors, he could be activated next week.

  • Lucroy (toe) cleared to catch bullpens
    Jonathan Lucroy (toe) has been cleared to catch bullpen sessions.

    Advice: The next and final step after that will be a clearance to begin running. The Brewers haven't set a firm timetable from Lucroy's return from a fractured left big toe, but he seems to be tracking towards an activation before the end of the month.

  • Yan Gomes (knee) set for rehab assignment
    Yan Gomes (knee) will begin a rehab assignment at Low-A Lake County on Friday.

    Advice: He'll either serve as the designated hitter or catcher on Friday and then be used at the other position Saturday. Gomes has recovered ahead of schedule from a right MCL sprain and it would seem likely that he'll be activated at some point next week if all goes well.

  • Jake Marisnick goes 0-for-5
    Jake Marisnick went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts Thursday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Marisnick hasn't responded well to last weekend's move into the leadoff spot, going 3-for-21 with 10 strikeouts, one walk and one run scored in five games. He might soon find himself batting ninth again.
    Thursday, 8:04 pm
  • Rusney Castillo (ankle) back in lineup Thurs.
    Rusney Castillo is back in the starting lineup on Thursday evening at Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Advice: Castillo was pulled from Wednesday's game after suffering a mild left ankle sprain. The 27-year-old Cuban outfielder is batting .280/.345/.340 with zero homers and four stolen bases in 13 games this season at Triple-A.
    Thursday, 10:55 am
  • Cervelli not in Pirates' lineup on Thursday
    Francisco Cervelli is not in the Pirates' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

    Advice: Chris Stewart will catch Vance Worley and bat eighth. Cervelli is batting just .270/.330/.337 on the season.
    Thursday, 7:14 am
  • Pujols lifts sac fly in 11th to walk off LAA
    Albert Pujols's sacrifice fly in the 11th inning sent the Angels to a 2-1 walkoff win against the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Advice: With the bases loaded in the 11th, Pujols lifted a fly to Corey Dickerson which was shallow enough to give Dickerson at least a shot to gun down pinch runner Taylor Featherston, but the throw was errant. It was the third walkoff victory of the season for the Angels, who evened their second to 17-17. Pujols finished 1-for-4 with a double. He's slashing .231/.288/.388.
    Wednesday, 10:44 pm
  • Mattingly on Puig: 'He's going to be a while'
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly acknowledged to reporters on Wednesday that Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will be out at least another couple of weeks.

    Advice: "He's still hurt," said Mattingly. "He's going to be a while." Puig reaggravated his strained left hamstring Friday in a rehab game at High-A Rancho Cucamonga. The hamstring has been bothering the 24-year-old Cuban since the middle of April. Andre Ethier will continue to serve as the primary right fielder for Los Angeles.

  • Everth Cabrera (foot) set for rehab games
    Everth Cabrera (foot) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Norfolk.

    Advice: Cabrera has been on the disabled list since May 7 with a bruised left foot. An MRI taken last week turned up negative and he should be ready to rejoin the Orioles' active roster as soon as his 15 days are up.
    Wednesday, 1:35 pm
  • Gomes (knee) could begin rehab on Friday
    Yan Gomes (knee) could begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Lake County as soon as Friday.

    Advice: Gomes has recovered ahead of schedule from a right MCL sprain. It's not clear at this point how many rehab games he might need, but it sounds like it's possible he could be activated from the disabled list before the end of the month. The Tribe initially thought he could be out until as late as mid-June.

  • Castillo pulled with minor ankle injury
    Rusney Castillo was pulled from Wednesday's game for Triple-A Pawtucket for precautionary reasons with a mild left ankle sprain.

    Advice: The ailment reportedly didn't look very good, but evidently Castillo will be OK. He should be considered day-to-day. The Cuban defector was batting .271/.340/.333 for Pawtucket going into Wednesday's game.
    Wednesday, 11:02 am
  • Castillo suffers apparent hamstring injury
    Rusney Castillo had to leave Wednesday's game at Triple-A Pawtucket with an apparent left hamstring injury.

    Advice: Castillo hurt himself while stealing second base. He was down for a while and being tended to be trainers before eventually walking off the field on his own. It's been a rough couple months for Castillo, as he was slowed by an oblique issue in spring training and then had to deal with a shoulder ailment.
    Wednesday, 10:19 am
  • Donaldson homers as Blue Jays rout Orioles
    Josh Donaldson went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Donaldson broke a 2-2 tie with an RBI single in the seventh inning, then later scored on a passed ball. He tacked on in garbage time with a two-run home run in the eighth inning to make it 10-2. Donaldson is batting a terrific .319/.376/.556 with eight home runs and 24 RBI.
    Tuesday, 7:01 pm
  • MRI confirms setback for Puig (hamstring)
    An MRI on Yasiel Puig's left hamstring has confirmed that he suffered a setback during a rehab game last Friday.

    Advice: No further details are available at the moment, other than that the Dodgers will obviously hit the pause button on the outfielder's rehab. How big of a setback this might be isn't known at this point. Andre Ethier will continue to handle right field while Puig is sidelined.

  • Adam Lind not in Tuesday's lineup
    Adam Lind is not in Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

    Advice: He's taking a seat with left-hander Chris Sale on the hill for Chicago. Jason Rogers will start at first base.
    Tuesday, 12:26 pm
  • Gomes (knee) ramping up baseball activity
    Yan Gomes (knee) did agility drills in the outfield and ran the bases Tuesday.

    Advice: It's another encouraging step for Gomes, who suffered a moderate right MCL sprain on April 11. He's making progress, but it's unclear when he'll go out on a minor league rehab assignment.

  • Yelich's ninth-inning homer goes for naught
    Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's walk-off loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Yelich committed an error in the outfield which eventually led to the Dodgers taking a 2-1 lead in the seventh. He made up for it, drilling a go-ahead two-run home run off of Yimi Garcia in the ninth inning. It's the first homer of the year for Yelich, who missed some time with a herniated disc in his back. He's batting .200/.273/.267 but we should see his numbers rise sooner rather than later so long as he's healthy.
