  • Gomes homers, but Indians drop game to LAA
    Yan Gomes finished 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Gomes clubbed a two-run home run in the first inning to extend the Indians' lead to 3-0. The backstop has swung a better bat since the beginning of July, but still has a measly .227/.254/.369 batting line on the year along with six home runs and 20 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Joseph homers, helping Orioles beat the A's
    Caleb Joseph hit an RBI double and a two-run home run in four at-bats on Monday, helping the Orioles to a 9-2 win against the Athletics.

    Advice: Joseph made it a 6-0 game with a two-run home run off of Jesse Chavez in the fourth inning. He tacked on an RBI double in the fifth inning to make it 8-1. Splitting time with Matt Wieters behind the plate, Joseph is hitting .250/.325/.429 with nine home runs and 37 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Davis clubs another homer as O's beat the A's
    Chris Davis went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Monday's win versus the Athletics.

    Advice: Davis gave the Orioles a 3-0 lead in the first inning when he took Jesse Chavez yard with a pair of ducks on the pond. He's homered in back-to-back games, and eight times in his last 13 games. Davis now owns a .245/.325/.508 batting line with 27 home runs and 75 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm

  • Blackmon's 4-hit night wasted as Rockies lose
    Charlie Blackmon registered four hits, including two doubles, in six at-bats on Monday as the Rockies were felled by the Mariners.

    Advice: Blackmon doubled to lead off the bottom of the first and came around to score on a Jose Reyes single. He added an RBI double in the sixth inning. It's been another fine year for the outfielder, who's hitting .298/.366/.471 with 12 home runs, 44 RBI, 29 stolen bases, and 64 runs scored. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Seager has a big night as Mariners edge Rocks
    Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, a solo home run, and three runs scored on Monday as the Mariners outlasted the Rockies.

    Advice: Seager hit the first of back-to-back home runs with Nelson Cruz. He also scored runs in the first and seventh innings. The third baseman had been in a slump, batting .133 (4-for-30) in his previous seven games. Seager's numbers on the season are solid, hitting .270/.329/.447 with 16 home runs and 44 RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Cruz belts 30th HR, Mariners hang on to win
    Nelson Cruz went 3-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run as the Mariners narrowly escaped with a win against the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Cruz went back-to-back with Kyle Seager in the second inning, extending the Mariners' lead to 6-1. It's his 30th homer of the year, marking only the third time he's crossed the 30-homer threshold in 11 big league seasons. (He's hit 29 twice, though.) Cruz has also knocked in 66 runs while hitting .321/.385/.590. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Lonnie Chisenhall departs with whiplash
    Lonnie Chisenhall left Monday's game against the Angels due to a cervical strain.

    Advice: It's a fancy way of saying he had whiplash, which he suffered after making a diving attempt in right field. Consider Chisenhall day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Abreu homers, but White Sox lose late to Rays
    Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Rays.

    Advice: Abreu tied the game up at 2-2 in the sixth inning when he drilled a two-run home run to center field off of Nate Karns. The first baseman has been on a power surge of late, homering five times in his last 11 games, giving him 19 on the year along with 64 RBI and a .299/.355/.510 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Sizemore homers, Rays rally late vs White Sox
    Grady Sizemore ripped a game-tying solo home run, aiding in a comeback win over the White Sox on Monday.

    Advice: Sizemore entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and doubled, then later scored. The next inning, he slugged a game-tying solo home run off of lefty reliever Zach Duke. Aside from a few productive games in early July shortly after joining the Rays, Sizemore hasn't done much at the plate, batting .241/.250/.448 with three home runs and eight RBI. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Justin Upton day-to-day with bruised thumb
    Justin Upton left Monday's game against the Brewers with a bruised right thumb.

    Advice: It had looked like Upton was pulled Monday simply to get him some rest with such a big lead, but apparently he's dealing with a big of a thumb issue. The Padres are calling him day-to-day for the time being, but he would figure to miss at least a game or two. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:40 pm
  • Conforto hits first MLB HR as the Mets roll
    Michael Conforto's first major league home run was a three-run home run that gave the Mets a lead they wouldn't relinquish on Monday versus the Marlins.

    Advice: The 22-year-old rookie was batting .211 (4-for-19) in his first six big league games entering Monday. With a pair of ducks on the pond, Conforto deposited a Tom Koehler offering over the fence in right field at Marlins Park to give the Mets a 3-0 lead. He finished 2-for-4. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:14 pm
  • Joe Panik (back) to have tests Tuesday
    Joe Panik is headed back to San Francisco to undergo tests on his ailing back.

    Advice: An MRI and cat scan will be part of the battery of tests he goes through. Panik was placed on the disabled list Monday with what the Giants are simply calling lower back inflammation for now, but they should get a better read on his status Tuesday. A clearer picture on his timetable should be known then. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:34 pm

  • Donovan Solano optioned to Triple-A
    Marlins optioned INF Donovan Solano to Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: Solano has managed just a .156/.194/.219 batting line over 46 games this season. The Marlins have elected to keep Miguel Rojas around as a utility infielder over him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:29 pm

  • Torii Hunter slugs solo homer in loss to Jays
    Torii Hunter slugged a solo home run Monday in the Twins' afternoon loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It was the only run Minnesota scored against David Price in his Blue Jays debut at Rogers Centre in Toronto. Hunter has 17 home runs and 56 RBI in 94 games this season, though that has come with a .249 average and .303 OBP. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:56 pm
  • Joe Panik (lower back) lands on disabled list
    Giants placed 2B Joe Panik on the 15-day disabled list with lower back inflammation.

    Advice: Panik admitted after Sunday's game that he's been bothered by back stiffness for the past couple of weeks. Hopefully a bit of time off will do the trick for the 24-year-old, who's enjoying a breakout 2015 season. Ehire Adrianza and callup Kelby Tomlinson figure to share playing time at second base while Panik is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:27 pm

  • Michael Morse starting at 1B on Monday
    Michael Morse is batting seventh and starting at first base Monday in his Pirates debut.

    Advice: Morse was acquired from the Dodgers in a July 31 deadline trade. He had been shipped from Miami to Los Angeles one day prior as part of a big 13-player, three-team swap. The 33-year-old first baseman has struggled mightily this season and probably won't suddenly take on significant fantasy value with Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:00 pm
  • Cruz crushes 440-foot homer against Twins
    Nelson Cruz went 2-for-5 with a long solo home run in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Twins.

    Advice: Cruz belted his prodigious bomb off of Twins closer Glen Perkins with two outs in the ninth. It was the first run that either team scored on the day. The Twins would tie it up in the bottom of the inning before the Mariners pushed across three runs in the 11th to pick up the victory. Cruz has been on fire of late, with homers in each of his last three games and five over his last eight. He's now hitting a sterling .317/.380/.581 with 29 homers and 65 RBI. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:41 pm
  • Joe Panik frustrated over back stiffness
    Joe Panik admitted after Sunday's game that his nagging back stiffness is not improving and that he's growing frustrated.

    Advice: Panik will see the trainers again on Monday, but it's starting to sound as though he may need a trip to the disabled list. Ehire Adrianza has been filling in during his absence, and would continue to do so should Panik get forced to the DL. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:12 pm

  • Davis provides Orioles' only offense with HR
    Chris Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's 6-1 loss to the Tigers.

    Advice: Davis provided the only blemish on the afternoon for the Tigers' young lefty Daniel Norris, homering in the fourth inning. The 1B/OF has matched last year's home run total at 26, and has also knocked in 72 runs while hitting .245/.327/.504. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:18 pm

  • Mets recall Michael Conforto from Triple-A
    Mets recalled OF Michael Conforto from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Conforto was just sent back down to the minor leagues on Saturday to make room on the active roster for Yoenis Cespedes. The 22-year-old is hitting .211 (4-for-19) with no homers and three RBI through his first six games in the big leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:41 pm
  • Joe Panik sitting out again with stiff back
    Joe Panik is not in Sunday's lineup due to nagging back stiffness.

    Advice: Panik played the last two days after missing two games with a stiff back, but now he's on the bench again. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that the infielder should be available off the bench, but he doesn't expect to start him for a few days. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Sunday.

  • Yan Gomes not in Sunday's lineup
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a simple day off. Roberto Perez will catch in Gomes' place. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:26 am
  • Lonnie Chisenhall homers for Indians
    Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians' only run Saturday against the A's.

    Advice: Chisenhall is 4-for-11 in three games since returning to the majors Thursday. Since he's likely to keep on starting in the outfield against righties, he should be a nice AL-only option the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:48 pm
  • Cruz smashes homer and double in loss
    Nelson Cruz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Cruz took Twins starter Kyle Gibson deep for a solo homer to lead off the sixth inning. The bomb was his 28th of the year. He's homered in four of his last seven games, including each of his last two. For the season, he's slashing .316/.380/.576 with the 28 homers and 64 RBI. Cruz will go through his cold streaks, as he did in a tough June, but when he's on, his bat is magical. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:01 pm
  • Blackmon doubles and triples to spark victory
    Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a double and triple in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: With the big game, Blackmon's now hit six triples. He's slashing .292/.361/.464 with 12 homers and 44 RBI. The Rockies are playing out the string, but that's not Blackmon's fault, and he's hitting toward career highs in multiple offensive categories to this point in the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Mets send down Michael Conforto
    Mets optioned OF Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: New York sent him down to make room for Yoenis Cespedes. Conforto got off to a good start (4-for-7 in his first two games), but went hitless over his last four contests. The 22-year-old should have plenty more chances to make an impact in the big leagues, but for now, he's better off getting regular at-bats in Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:49 pm
  • Rays recall Grady Sizemore from Triple-A
    Rays recalled OF Grady Sizemore from Triple-A Durham.

    Advice: He takes the place of Mikie Mahtook on the Rays roster. Prior to his demotion, the veteran outfielder was hitting .235/.245/.392 with two homers, seven RBI and a 13/1 K/BB ratio in 15 games with the Rays. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:09 am
  • Lonnie Chisenhall goes 3-for-4, doubles
    Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

    Advice: Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. Ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:05 am
  • Nelson Cruz goes 4-for-5, homers
    Nelson Cruz finished 4-for-5 with a homer and a double versus the Twins in Friday's win.

    Advice: After a month and a half of little production, Cruz has picked it back up again since the All-Star break, hitting six homers in his last 15 games. He remains a particularly strong DFS play whenever the Mariners are facing a mediocre lefty. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:43 pm
  • Abreu smacks two-run homer vs. Yankees
    Jose Abreu launched a two-run homer Friday in a losing effort against the Yankees.

    Advice: Abreu finished July with a flourish, batting .381 (16-for-42) with four home runs and 15 RBI over his last 11 games. He has hit safely in all of them. The 28-year-old is in a good situation in Chicago and it would be no surprise if he led the AL in homers over the final two months of the season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:44 pm
  • Pirates acquire Michael Morse for Jose Tabata
    Pirates acquired 1B/OF Michael Morse from the Dodgers in exchange for OF Jose Tabata.

    Advice: Morse was designated for assignment after the Dodgers picked him up in the three-team deal with the Marlins and Braves. He's hit only .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season but offers the Pirates an option at first base against left-handed pitching. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:23 pm
  • Joe Panik (back) returns to Giants' lineup
    Joe Panik (back) is back in the Giants' lineup Friday.

    Advice: Panik missed a couple games with a stiff back. He returns to a .309/.375/.440 batting line. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:28 pm

  • 'Nothing happening' on Upton trade front
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that there's "nothing happening" on the Justin Upton trade front and "it appears he's staying put at deadline."

    Advice: Things can always change, of course, but there has been surprisingly little trade rumors of late involving the outfielder. The Padres appear content to pick up a draft pick for Upton this winter rather than deal him for a trade package they deem unsatisfactory. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:19 pm
  • Donovan Solano back from paternity leave
    Marlins activated INF Donovan Solano from the paternity leave list.

    Advice: He'll return to his utility role. Solano is hitting an embarrassing .145/.185/.210 over 44 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:11 pm

  • Chris Davis homers, knocks in four runs
    Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, four RBI and a walk Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Davis has six homers in 13 games since the All-Star break and 25 overall. It's not nearly the same kind of season he had in 2013, not with his .244 average, but it's is a big improvement on what he did last year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:28 pm

  • Dodgers designate Morse for assignment
    Dodgers designated 1B Michael Morse for assignment.

    Advice: Morse was acquired on Thursday as part of the massive 13-player, three-team trade with the Marlins and Braves, but it's clear that he was just a salary dump. The 33-year-old is unlikely to attract much interest on waivers. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:34 pm
  • Indians recall Lonnie Chisenhall from AAA
    Indians recalled INF Lonnie Chisenhall from Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: With Brandon Moss shipped out of town, Chisenhall could see some action in the corner outfield, where he had been working in the minors. Unless he finds everyday at-bats though, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:00 pm
  • Upton hits homer in bizarre circumstances
    Justin Upton cracked a go-ahead three-run home run in the ninth inning of Thursday afternoon's 8-7 win over the Mets.

    Advice: This will go down as one of the stranger games of the season. The Mets held a 7-1 lead after six innings. This advantage was dropped to two runs after Derek Norris hit a grand slam in the seventh inning. And then the ninth inning happened. Mets closer Jeurys Familia recorded the first two outs of the inning easily enough, at which point, a string of storms hit and delayed the game for 44 minutes. You can probably guess what happened next. Familia returned to the game after the long delay, allowed two singles, then served up a three-run homer to Upton to give the Padres an 8-7 lead. This would hold as the final score, though not before another delay of over an hour. The baseball deities must have really wanted to enjoy this epic collapse. Upton's name has been swirling in trade rumors for weeks, but he's still with the Padres and it's not a given that he'll be moved. He's struggled over the last two months, but has now homered twice and driven in six in his last two games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:45 pm
  • Report: White Sox in on Upton, Cespedes
    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the White Sox are interested in Padres outfielder Justin Upton and Tigers outfielder Yoenis Cespedes.

    Advice: Such a scenario would have been unthinkable just a couple of weeks ago, but the White Sox have played much better of late and currently sit just 2 1/2 games back for a Wild Card spot. Both Upton and Cespedes would merely be rentals, but either could make a huge difference in the lineup for the suddenly-surging South Siders. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:11 pm
  • Dodgers acquire Michael Morse from Marlins
    Dodgers acquired 1B Michael Morse from the Marlins in the 13-player, three-team Mat Latos trade.

    Advice: Morse doesn't fit all that well on the Dodgers' current roster and it seems possible that they might turn around and designate him for assignment to clear room for some of the other players they acquired in this massive swap. Morse, 33, was batting just .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season for Miami. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:34 pm
  • Justin Upton hits 17th homer
    Justin Upton went 2-for-4 and hit his 17th homer Wednesday versus the Mets.

    Advice: He also had a sac fly and finished the night with three RBI. He's still batting just .186 in 156 at-bats since the beginning of June, but better days are surely ahead. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:35 pm
  • Dodgers/Marlins deal could involve third team
    Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM reports that there is a third team involved in the trade sending Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Bowden says the deal will be "bigger than expected." There's a good chance it means Morse will be flipped to another team, as the Dodgers have little use for him. We should know more details later Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:43 pm
  • Joe Panik (back) to sit out again Wednesday
    Joe Panik will miss a second straight game Wednesday due to back tightness.

    Advice: Panik noted that it wasn't one play that caused the injury, but rather it's just "one of those things" you have to deal with during a long season. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza will get another start at second base Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:24 am

  • Cruz homers, but Mariners fall to the D'Backs
    Nelson Cruz hit a solo home run in a 1-for-4 effort as the Mariners dropped Tuesday's game to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The Mariners had fallen behind 6-1 after the top of the sixth when Cruz got one back with a solo shot off of Zack Godley in the bottom half. It's his fifth home run in his last eight games, giving him 26 on the season with 61 RBI and a .309/.375/.559 batting line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:18 pm
  • Abreu homers among three hits, White Sox roll
    Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the White Sox jumped on the Red Sox 9-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Abreu had three of the team's 14 hits on the evening, hitting a two-run homer in the sixth before adding an RBI double in the eighth. The homer was his 16th of the year, giving him 56 RBI. The three-hit night extended his modest hitting streak to eight games while raising his overall line to .296/.349/.489. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:44 pm
  • Davis has 2 HR, 5 RBI to down the Braves
    Chris Davis crushed a pair of home runs to drive in five runs, helping the Orioles take down the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: The O's fell behind 2-0 in the top of the first inning, but Davis quickly responded with a three-run home run in the bottom half. He added a two-run shot in the second, with both blasts coming against Julio Teheran -- his only hits in four at-bats on the night. Davis is swinging a hot stick as he's homered five times in his last seven games, giving him 24 on the season with 65 RBI and a .243/.325/.497 line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 pm

Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate Tuesday night against the Royals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:01 pm

  • Orioles, Padres talking Justin Upton trade
    ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Orioles and Padres have discussed a trade that would send Justin Upton to Baltimore.

    Advice: The O's have been one of the clubs connected to Upton previously. However, Stark also notes that the deal could be expanded to include Andrew Cashner or Tyson Ross. It's unclear at this point how close something might be to getting done. The Orioles have been mentioned as a possible seller, but they sit just 3.5 games out of a Wild Card spot and this rumor would seem to indicate that they have no plans to give up on a playoff run. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:19 pm
  • Cards 'don't appear high' on O's Chris Davis
    According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Cardinals "don't appear to be high" on Chris Davis.

    Advice: St. Louis is known to be in search of an upgrade at first base, but the Cardinals' primary target seems to be the Brewers' Adam Lind. Crasnick says the Cards are "wary" of Davis' lofty strikeout totals, and it also probably helps that Lind carries a team-friendly option for 2016 whereas Davis is due to become a free agent.

  • Justin Upton powers Padres past Marlins
    Justin Upton clobbered his 16th home run of the season on Sunday, powering the Padres to a 4-2 victory over the visiting Marlins.

    Advice: Upton got the scoring started with his solo blast off Marlins starter Mat Latos in the second inning. He also singled and walked in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-3, raising his season slash to .251/.330/.429 to go along with 16 homers and 50 RBI. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 4:02 pm
  • Joseph drills a homer, helping O's best Rays
    Caleb Joseph went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win versus the Rays.

    Advice: Joseph took Matt Moore out to left-center in the fourth inning, extending the Orioles' lead to 5-0. The backstop has now registered multiple RBI in four of his last seven games, giving him 30 RBI on the season along with seven home runs and a .235/.306/.390 batting line. Rotoworld.com Jul 26, 1:06 pm
  • Hunter homers in second straight game vs NYY
    Torii Hunter went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 8-5 loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Hunter's three-run homer off of Yankees starter CC Sabathia in the third inning made the score 5-0 Twinkies. The team wouldn't score again in the contest, though, ultimately falling 8-5 as the Yankees completed a big comeback. Sad loss aside, Hunter's putting in a strong season for the Twins. The home run was his 16th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 53. He's hitting .254/.308/.443 and while his average has fallen off compared to recent seasons, he continues to mash for power and should pass the 20-homer mark for the 11th time in his career sometime in the next few weeks. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 7:33 pm
  • Abreu notches three RBI in win over Indians
    Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Saturday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Abreu did his damage with a pair of RBI singles, the first a two-RBI base knock off Indians starter Carlos Carrasco in the first inning. He would notch the other single in the ninth inning, pushing the score to 9-3. Abreu's hitting .289/.339/.473 with 15 homers and 52 RBI this season. He's not going to match the 36 homers he hit last season unless he goes on an epic power surge, but it's been a nice sophomore campaign even without quite as many pyrotechnics. Rotoworld.com Jul 25, 7:13 pm
  • Davis crushes grand slam in O's win
    Chris Davis launched a grand slam in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Davis unloaded on an Erasmo Ramirez offering with one out and the bases juiced in the third inning to give the Orioles a 4-0 lead. It was his 22nd homer of the season and pushed his RBI total to an even 60 on the year. The slugger has been in the zone of late, with three homers and two doubles in his last four games. That, on top of an ongoing eight-game hitting streak. He's currently hitting .242/.321/.487. On Friday, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reported that the Orioles were considering selling off some pieces at the trade deadline. Davis is one of those potential pieces, and with his recent hot stretch, he should draw interest as a rental from multiple teams if the team does, indeed, try to move him.

  • Mets unwilling to meet asking price for Upton
    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Mets and Padres have reached an impasse in trade talks for Justin Upton.

    Advice: The Padres are reportedly demanding at least one high-end prospect, possibly two, but the Mets have balked at the high asking price. While the two sides could certainly resume talks, it seems more likely that the Mets will target a lower-level outfielder such as Gerardo Parra from the Brewers, rather than mortgage any part of their future.

  • Blackmon scores winning run on wild pitch
    Charlie Blackmon scored the winning run on a wild pitch in Friday's 6-5 win over the Reds.

    Advice: With Ryan Mattheus pitching, Blackmon reached on an infield single with one out before stealing second base and moving over to third on a ground out from D.J. LeMahieu. Mattheus then threw a pitch in the dirt which trickled away from Tucker Barnhart and allowed Blackmon to scamper home with the winning run. Blackmon went 3-for-5 on the night and owns an impressive .296/.366/.466 batting line on the season. Rotoworld.com Jul 24, 9:45 pm
