  • Encarnacion out for second half of DH
    Edwin Encarnacion remains out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Encarnacion didn't start the first game either, though he drew a walk as a pinch-hitter. There's nothing to be concerned about here. Toronto is just having to get creative in a National League park. Rotoworld.com

    Ryan Zimmerman is not in the lineup for the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Zimmerman went 0-for-3 with an RBI in the early game, a 2-0 win for Washington. He will be available off the bench as the Nationals try to sweep the twin-billing. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Abreu (finger) remains sidelined Tuesday
    Jose Abreu (finger) is not in the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.

    Advice: Abreu hasn't played since leaving Friday's game against the Astros with irritation in his right index finger. It's something that has bothered Abreu off and on over the first two months of the 2015 regular season. He'll aim to return to action on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Colabello extends hitting streak to 12 games
    Chris Colabello had a single in four at-bats in a losing effort in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Colabello has now hit safely in 12 straight games. He's provided a huge boost to Toronto's battered outfield, posting a .364/.411/.556 batting line with four home runs and 14 RBI over 26 games, but we're very skeptical it's going to last. Rotoworld.com

  • Encarnacion out for first gm. of doubleheader
    Edwin Encarnacion is not in the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: In other words, the Blue Jays are going with the same lineup they planned to use on Monday, with Justin Smoak making the start at first base. Encarnacion is likely to be in the lineup for Game 2. Rotoworld.com

  • Bautista (shoulder) in RF for first gm. of DH
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) will start in right field for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Bautista was slated to play right field Monday before the game was postponed due to rain. He has been limited to DH duties since April 21 due to right shoulder inflammation, but has felt some improvement since a cortisone shot last week. We still wouldn't count on seeing him in right field on an everyday basis, but this is a good sign for the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com

  • Teixeira's grand slam powers Yanks past SEA
    Mark Teixeira walked and hit a grand slam in four plate appearances Monday, leading the Yankees past the Mariners.

    Advice: Teixeira knocked ace Felix Hernandez out of the game with his fifth-inning grand slam. At the rate he's going, he'll reach 30 home runs in a season for the first time since 2011. He's at 15 now along with 39 RBI and a .241/.358/.566 batting line. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols homers twice as Angels down Rays
    Albert Pujols crushed a pair of home runs, going 3-for-5 as the Angels topped the Rays on Monday.

    Advice: Pujols gave the Angels plenty of insurance with his homers. His first, in the fifth inning, extended the lead to 5-3. His second, in the eighth inning, made it 7-3. Pujols -- now with five home runs in his last five games -- has 533 round-trippers in his career, leaving him one short of tying Jimmie Foxx for 17th on the all-time leaderboard. Pujols also has 13 homers on the season along with 26 RBI and a .254/.304/.497 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Freeman homers, knocks in 3 vs. D'Backs
    Freddie Freeman homered and drove in three runs in a 3-for-5 effort as the Braves defeated the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Freeman pushed the Braves' lead to 5-0 in the fifth inning with a two-run home run. He added an RBI single in the sixth. The first baseman has predictably solid numbers, batting .297/.363/.503 with eight home runs and 29 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:28 pm
  • Gonzalez doubles twice in a 4-for-4 effort
    Adrian Gonzalez had a perfect night at the plate, going 4-for-4 with a walk and a pair of doubles as the Dodgers routed the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: In one night, Gonzalez exceeded the amount of hits he had accrued in his previous five ballgames. Despite reaching base five times, the Dodgers -- who scored 11 runs -- only brought him home once, in the eighth inning. The effort brings Gonzalez's OPS back up over 1.000. He has a .339/.415/.611 triple-slash line with 10 home runs and 35 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:50 pm
  • Alonso (shoulder) expected back on Tuesday
    Yonder Alonso (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: Alonso has just three hits in 16 at-bats during five rehab games so far, but the important thing is that his right shoulder is feeling fine. The first baseman was off to a .333/.427/.437 start this season with the Padres before landing on the disabled list in early May. Rotoworld.com

  • Duda not playing Monday due to stiff knee
    Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Tuesday due to stiffness in his right knee.

    Advice: Duda was hit by a pitch on the knee during Sunday's game. He was able to stay in that contest but obviously is feeling the effects a day later. The good news is that Duda thinks he'll be fine to play on Tuesday. Michael Cuddyer is at first base Monday, with Darrell Ceciliani covering left field. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Bautista (shoulder) starts in RF Monday
    Jose Bautista (shoulder) is starting in right field for the Blue Jays on Monday evening.

    Advice: Bautista was limited to designated hitter duties for over a month because of inflammation in his right shoulder and he will probably still need some days off from the outfield here and there over the next few weeks. Justin Smoak is starting at first base Monday at Nationals Park and Edwin Encarnacion is on the bench. Rotoworld.com

  • Brewers activate Jonathan Lucroy from the DL
    Brewers activated C Jonathan Lucroy from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Lucroy is back with the Brewers on Monday night in St. Louis after missing close to six weeks with a fractured left big toe. He was off to a poor start before the injury, but the 28-year-old catcher should be a strong fantasy bet going forward. He hit .301/.373/.465 with 53 doubles, 13 home runs, and 69 RBI in 153 games last season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:25 pm
  • Dominic Smith goes off for three hits Sunday
    Mets first base prospect Dominic Smith smashed three hits Sunday in a win for High-A St. Lucie.

    Advice: Smith drove in four runs to cap off an incredible weekend. On Saturday, the 19-year-old belted an 11th-inning walk-off home run, his second blast in 215 career minor league games. Smith's three-hit day Sunday extended his hitting streak to 13 games. The 2013 first-round pick batted .276 with 23 RBI in the month of May. Rotoworld.com

  • Abreu expects to return to lineup on Tuesday
    Jose Abreu (finger) expects to return to the White Sox lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: He left Friday's game after aggravating an existing finger injury, and sat out the remainder of the weekend as a precautionary measure. He'll have an extra day to rest with Monday's off-day before returning to the lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:51 pm
  • Freeman hits pinch-hit homer to help comeback
    Freddie Freeman hit a pinch-hit solo home run in the ninth inning of Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Freeman wasn't in the starting lineup, as today served as a rest day, but with the Braves trailing 5-3, he stepped to the plate and drilled a solo homer off Santiago Casilla to draw the team to within 5-4. A three-run triple by Jace Peterson would bring home the 7-5 win. Freeman is slashing a solid .289/.357/.484 this season, with seven homers, 26 RBI and 28 runs scored. While he's hitting a slightly cooler .276/.350/.410 in May, even his slumps don't look too horrible. Rotoworld.com

  • Freddie Freeman getting a breather Sunday
    Freddie Freeman is not in the Braves' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just receiving a breather. Chris Johnson is at first base in Freeman's place. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Abreu (finger) sitting out again Sunday
    Jose Abreu (finger) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Abreu left Friday's game with irritation in his right index finger and has now missed two straight starts. The White Sox are off Monday, so perhaps he'll be ready to go Tuesday after three days of rest. Adam LaRoche is at first base, Cole Gillespie is in the designated hitter spot and Gordon Beckham is at third base while Abreu sits. Rotoworld.com

  • Grandal's three-run homer propels Dodgers
    Yasmani Grandal went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Prior to Saturday's game, Grandal had been on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion suffered on May 22. His return went swimmingly. Grandal's three-run, 435-foot homer off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha in the sixth inning snapped a 1-1 tie and gave the Dodgers a lead they would not relinquish. The dinger was Grandal's fifth of the season and he's now driven in 20 runs to pair with a .292/.406/.491 slash line. While head injuries are tricky, owners should feel confident deploying the 26-year-old catcher in their lineups moving forward. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:32 pm
  • Albert Pujols tweaked groin on Friday
    Albert Pujols injured his groin in Friday's win against the Tigers.

    Advice: That prompted the Angels to call up Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake. Pujols will DH Saturday with Navarro getting the start at first base. Despite his low average (.250), Pujols is still a decent source of power for fantasy owners. He's tied for 11th in the American League with ten home runs this season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:07 pm
  • Dodgers activate catcher Grandal
    Dodgers activated catcher Yasmani Grandal from the seven-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: The Dodgers will go with three catchers for now, perhaps just in case Grandal has a setback. Grandal will go right back to doing the bulk of the catching. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:28 pm
  • Jose Abreu (finger) taking day off Saturday
    Jose Abreu (finger) is not in the White Sox starting lineup Saturday against the Astros.

    Advice: Abreu left Friday's game with irritation in his right index finger. It's something that has been lingering for a couple of weeks, but he could return Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:51 am
  • Jose Abreu (finger) unlikely to play Saturday
    Jose Abreu (finger) is unlikely to play on Saturday.

    Advice: The 28-year-old slugger was removed from Friday's game due to irritation in his right index finger and was sent for X-rays. Abreu initially sustained the injury two weeks ago during a game in Chicago and it has continued to bother him off and on since. Be sure to check the White Sox lineup before game time, but it would be surprising to see Abreu in there on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Yonder Alonso moves rehab up to Triple-A
    Yonder Alonso moved his minor league rehab assignment up to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

    Advice: He played in two games at High-A Lake Elsinore, going 1-for-6 with three walks before joining El Paso where he went 0-for-3 with a pair of walks and two runs scored on Friday. He's getting closer to a return to the Padres and could be activated from the disabled list at the beginning of next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Albert Pujols goes 3-for-4, homers
    Albert Pujols finished 3-for-4 with a homer against the Tigers on Friday.

    Advice: Homers in back-to-back games have given Pujols 10 for the year. Incredibly, he still has just 20 RBI, even though he's been hitting behind Mike Trout all season. One imagines he'll come around there, though. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:33 pm
  • Jose Abreu leaves game with irritated finger
    Jose Abreu was forced to leave Friday's game against the Astros due to irritation in his right index finger.

    Advice: It's an issue that cropped up earlier in the season as well for Abreu, causing him to depart from a game mid at-bat when he had difficulty gripping the bat. The injury doesn't appear to be very serious though, so consider the slugger day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Colabello's two-run blast powers Blue Jays
    Chris Colabello blasted a go-ahead two-run homer in the ninth inning on Friday, powering the Blue Jays to a come-from-behind 6-4 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

    Advice: It was Colabello's lone hit in four at-bats on the night, but certainly proved to be the critical blow in the ballgame. He has been a force the Blue Jays lineup since his callup, slashing .379/.432/.598 with four homers and 14 RBI. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues until he cools off. Rotoworld.com

  • Duda hits sixth homer in last seven games
    Lucas Duda blasted a solo home run Friday against the Marlins.

    Advice: Duda, who went 1-for-4 in the loss, has now gone deep six times in his last seven games. Through 48 games, the 29-year-old owns a healthy .304/.397/.550 batting line to go along with nine home runs and 24 RBI. Suddenly he's right on pace to duplicate his power production from last season. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:40 pm
  • Jose Bautista likely to play RF on Monday
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that he's optimistic Jose Bautista (shoulder) will be ready to play right field on Monday.

    Advice: Bautista has been limited to designated hitter duty since late April due to a sore right shoulder. He's been throwing regularly since receiving a cortisone shot last weekend, though, and hasn't had any setbacks. The Blue Jays will be in Washington on Monday and not have the DH spot available.

  • Pujols reaches base 3 times, homers in win
    Albert Pujols went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer, two walks and two runs scored in a 12-2 victory against the Tigers on Thursday.

    Advice: Pujols has nine homers -- putting him on a 30-pace clip -- but he isn't doing much else. He has only 19 RBI and has a rough .238/.294/.436 slash line. On a positive note, he's hit safely in six of seven and has four extra-base hits in that stretch. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He caught five innings in the contest. Lucroy has been sidelined since April 20 due to a broken big toe on his left foot. He's going to remain on his rehab assignment through the weekend before rejoining the Brewers on Monday in St. Louis. Rotoworld.com

    Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a triple and a two-run double as the White Sox beat the Blue Jays in 10 innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Abreu started the scoring, knocking in two with a double off of Marco Estrada in the third inning. He set up the White Sox to take the lead in the 10th inning with a leadoff triple. He then scored on an Adam LaRoche single. Abreu is batting .284/.346/.497 on the year with eight home runs and 29 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Duda homers twice to lead Mets past Phillies
    Lucas Duda hit a pair of solo home runs and a double in a 3-for-4 effort Wednesday as the Mets topped the Phillies.

    Advice: Duda started the scoring in the first inning with a solo shot off of Sean O'Sullivan. He victimized O'Sullivan again in the fifth with another solo blast, the last of four home runs the Mets hit against the Phillies' right-hander. Duda also had a multi-homer game on May 21, giving him five in his last six games. He has eight total on the season along with 23 RBI and a .305/.400/.539 batting line. Rotoworld.com

  • Gonzalez crosses 1,000 RBI mark for career
    Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run as the Dodgers enjoyed an easy win over the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez's fifth-inning two-run home run off of Julio Teheran marked his 10th long ball of the season and his 1,000th and 1,001st RBI's of his 12-year-career. The first baseman owns a stellar .344/.421/.638 batting line with 35 RBI on the season as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Abreu's HR, 4 RBI not enough in loss to Jays
    Jose Abreu went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and an RBI ground out in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Abreu gave the White Sox a short-lived 5-3 lead with a three-run home run to left field off of R.A. Dickey. He added an RBI ground out in the middle of a three-run eighth inning as well. The White Sox entered Tuesday's game averaging only 3.5 runs per game, the worst in the American League. But it's not Abreu's fault as he has eight home runs, 27 RBI, and a .274/.339/.476 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com

  • Bautista's 5 RBI helps Jays win a slugfest
    Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with three doubles and five RBI as the Blue Jays won in a slugfest against the White Sox.

    Advice: Bautista gave the Jays a 3-2 lead in the third inning with a two-run ground-rule double. He added a two-run double in the fifth to give the Jays a 6-5 lead, then tacked on one more run with his third double in the seventh to make it a 7-6 game. Bautista has knocked in at least one run in nine of his last 11 games and is now batting .231/.373/.485 with seven home runs and 30 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

Lucroy was batting just .133 with a .393 OPS in 12 games before the injury, but he can get it going in a hurry. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols delivers a walk-off RBI single vs. SDP
    Albert Pujols hit a broken-bat RBI single to help the Angels walk off winners in the bottom of the ninth against the Padres on Monday.

    Advice: Padres closer Craig Kimbrel was trying to clean up Kevin Quackenbush's mess and walked Mike Trout to load the bases with two outs to face Pujols. Pujols broke his bat, but was strong enough to drive a grounder into left field for the walk-off hit. He finished 1-for-5 on the night. The veteran first baseman is batting a mediocre .228/.280/.420 with eight home runs and 17 RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Abreu smacks solo homer in loss to Twins
    Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Abreu hit his solo tater off of Kyle Gibson in the fourth inning. It would be the only run that the White Sox managed to score in the game. The dinger was Abreu's seventh and pushed his RBI total to 23. While he's not hitting at the monstrous level that he was in 2014, he's still posting a rock-solid .282/.349/.474 slash-line.

    Edwin Encarnacion singled and ripped a two-run home run in Sunday's victory over the Mariners.

    Advice: Both Ryan Goins and Encarnacion went deep for the Jays in the fifth inning off of Taijuan Walker. Encarnacion still isn't hitting for average, but he's really found his power stroke of late with eight dingers over his last 16 contests. He has 12 homers and 32 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Alonso (shoulder) nearing rehab assignment
    Yonder Alonso (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Wednesday.

    Advice: Padres manager Bud Black seemed pessimistic less than a week ago about Alonso's recovery from a bone bruise in his right shoulder, but the first baseman has apparently made great progress since then. He'll hit on the field on Monday. "I was able to go through my routine, I was able to hit some balls off the tee and hit some balls off front toss. Day by day, I'm increasing my load," he said. "I'm feeling good, responded well to [Friday's] work." Rotoworld.com

    Yasmani Grandal (concussion) is expected to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible next Saturday.

    Advice: Grandal was placed on the DL Saturday with a mild concussion, but the Dodgers anticipate him being ready to play in a few days. He could play 2-3 rehab games before being activated. Rotoworld.com

  • Lucroy (toe) could be activated next weekend
    Jonathan Lucroy (toe) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as next weekend.

    Advice: Lucroy will have an X-ray Monday to see if his fractured left big toe is healed. If it is, he'll be cleared for a short rehab assignment and could be back in the Brewers' lineup next weekend when they take on the Diamondbacks. He's been on the shelf since mid-April. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Bautista (shoulder) gets cortisone shot
    Jose Bautista is not in Sunday's lineup after being given a cortisone shot for his ailing right shoulder.

    Advice: Bautista has been dealing with the shoulder malady for over a month now and just can't get over the hump. It appears at this point that he'll continue to play through it, although he'll have to keep doing it in the designated hitter spot. Rotoworld.com

  • Lucas Duda (hamstring) not in Sunday's lineup
    Lucas Duda is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday due to a tight hamstring.

    Advice: Duda tweaked the hamstring on a play at second base Saturday. It doesn't sound like more than a day-to-day concern, but the Mets will be careful. Michael Cuddyer is at first base Sunday, with John Mayberry covering left field. Rotoworld.com

  • Yasmani Grandal (concussion) placed on DL
    Dodgers placed C Yasmani Grandal on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    Advice: Grandal suffered the injury Friday when Padres first baseman Yangervis Solarte hit him with his backswing. The Dodgers think he'll be back to normal soon but understandably wanted to be cautious. We'd expect A.J. Ellis to do most of the catching in his absence, though Austin Barnes could see time there as well. Barnes was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Colabello goes deep as Jays fall to Mariners
    Chris Colabello blasted his third home run of the season in a losing effort against the Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

    Advice: His solo shot off opposing starter James Paxton in the fourth inning pulled the Jays to within a run at 3-2, but that would be as close as they would get. He finished the afternoon 1-for-3 and also drew a walk. Colabello has provided an offensive spark since joining the Blue Jays lineup, slashing .379/.438/.591 with three long balls and 10 RBI. He's worth riding in deeper mixed leagues for as long as he remains a regular in the lineup. Rotoworld.com

  • Yasmani Grandal day-to-day for now
    The Dodgers aren't sure whether Yasmani Grandal suffered a concussion Friday, but he won't play Saturday.

    Advice: It's possible Grandal will end up on the seven-day concussion DL, but that remains to be seen. A.J. Ellis will catch Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Pujols (hand) homers in return to lineup
    Albert Pujols (hand) went 2-for-6 with a solo home run and two runs scored in his return to the lineup Friday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Pujols sat out Thursday after being hit in the left hand by a pitch on Wednesday, but he thinks he can play through it. The 35-year-old is batting .235/.290/.436 with eight home runs and 16 RBI through 39 games this season. Rotoworld.com
