    Advice: McGehee went 0-for-3 before being removed from the game. He's 6-for-41 since July 17, dropping his overall line to .208/.277/.298. The Marlins aren't going anywhere, but it's hard to understand why they keep running him out there at this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:51 pm

    Lucas Duda went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.

    Brian McCann went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a three-run home run as the Yankees routed the Red Sox on Tuesday.

    Braves placed 1B Freddie Freeman on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

    Advice: A tough break for Freeman, who just recently returned from a right wrist contusion. He suffered the injury during Monday's game and will now require another extended absence. Chris Johnson and Joey Terdoslavich figure to fill in at first base. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:30 am

  • 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 Monday, 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 Monday, 9:04 pm
  • Solarte's 2 HR, 4 RBI power Padres to a win
    Yangervis Solarte hit two home runs, knocked in four runs, and drew a walk in five plate appearances in Monday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Solarte put the Padres on the board early with a first-inning solo home run against Wily Peralta. He added a three-run home run to cap off a six-run seventh inning. The third baseman is on a nine-game hitting streak, the most recent four of which have included multiple hits. Solarte owns a productive .266/.319/.418 batting line with seven home runs and 40 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:30 pm
  • Freddie Freeman suffers strained oblique
    Freddie Freeman was pulled from Monday's game versus the Giants with a right oblique strain.

    Advice: Well, at least he didn't aggravate his wrist injury. The Braves are calling Freeman day-to-day for the time being, but, as we all know, oblique injuries usually wind up leading to stints on the disabled list. Chris Johnson would be poised to take over at first base if Freeman misses significant time. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:13 pm

  • Freddie Freeman exits with undisclosed injury
    Freddie Freeman left Monday's game against the Giants with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: He didn't suffer an obvious injury but was replaced at first base by Chris Johnson in the top of the fifth inning. The worry has to be that Freeman re-injured his right wrist, but the Braves should offer more on his status later Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:39 pm

  • Adam Duvall homers in Louisville debut
    Reds 1B prospect Adam Duvall homered in his first game for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

    Advice: Duvall now has 27 round-trippers in 408 at-bats this year. There's no denying his immense power, but unfortunately Duvall is in the same position he was in San Francisco. With the Giants, he was blocked at first base by Brandon Belt. Now in Cincinnati, the same is true with Joey Votto. Duvall's best chance to crack the majors might be as a corner outfielder, though it's unclear if he can make that transition. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:51 pm

  • Duda continues home run barrage in victory
    Lucas Duda continued his home run barrage on Sunday, blasting a two-run homer off Jordan Zimmermann in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Nationals.

    Advice: With the victory, the Mets completed their sweep of the three-game weekend series against the Nationals and pulled even with their division rival for the top spot in the National League East. Duda has been on an absolute tear at the plate in recent days, blasting nine home runs and driving home 12 runs in his last eight ballgames. He finished the night 2-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.348/.489 with 21 homers and 50 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:04 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

  • 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
  • Rizzo homers in fourth straight game
    Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Rizzo launched his three-run homer off of Brewers starter Matt Garza in the third inning. It was his 20th of the year and pushed his RBI total to an even 60. After a prolonged power-drought that saw just one home run in 31 games, Rizzo's now homered in four straight games. He's hitting .290/.400/.531 over 373 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:43 pm
  • Duda homers twice, supplies go-ahead RBI
    Lucas Duda had a huge impact on Saturday's 3-2 win over the Nationals, hitting a pair of solo home runs and a go-ahead RBI double.

    Advice: The Mets brought Yoenis Cespedes over at the trade deadline to bolster a shoddy offense, but on Saturday, Duda did it all on his own. He launched a solo home run against Nationals starter Joe Ross in the fourth inning, then repeated the feat in the seventh. That second homer tied the game at 2-2. A frame later, he smacked an RBI double off Nationals reliever Matt Thornton to put the Mets up 3-2. This would stand as the final. Duda has produced multi-homer efforts in three of his last seven games to help boost his slash to .246/.347/.481 with 20 home runs and 48 RBI. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:27 pm
  • 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
  • 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
  • Rizzo homers in win over Brewers
    Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Rizzo has now gone deep in each of the last three games. The 25-year-old had just one home run in 31 games prior to this recent power surge. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:16 pm
  • Freeman belts 14th homer in loss to Phillies
    Freddie Freeman belted his 14th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday.

    Advice: The Phillies jumped out to an early 9-0 lead in this one, and Freeman's two-run shot in the eighth merely made it a 9-3 ballgame. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .288/.354/.509 to go along with 14 bombs and 45 RBI. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:30 pm

  • Dodgers place Justin Turner on 15-day DL
    Dodgers placed INF Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28, with a skin infection on his right thigh.

    Advice: Alex Guerrero and Alberto Callaspo will continue to hold down the fort at the hot corner until Turner is ready to return. He's in the midst of an outstanding season offensively, slashing .323/.387/.563 with 13 homers and 44 RBI in just 254 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:55 pm

  • Adam Duvall goes to Reds in Leake deal
    Reds acquired INF Adam Duvall and RHP Keury Mella from the Giants in exchange for RHP Mike Leake.

    Advice: Duvall, 26, hit 27 homers at Triple-A last season and has 26 so far in 2015, but he's been blocked at the major league level and not gotten much of a chance. Unfortunately for him, he's now blocked again in Cincinnati by Joey Votto and Todd Frazier. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:22 am

  • Anthony Rizzo goes 3-for-4, hits big homer
    Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and a double as the Cubs beat the Brewers 5-2 on Thursday.

    Advice: The Brewers were up 2-0 when Rizzo delivered his big blow in the eighth. The Cubs then added two runs in the ninth as insurance. Rizzo has homered in back-to-back games, so maybe his lengthy slump is coming to an end. He had just one homer in five weeks prior to yesterday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:28 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

  • 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
  • Yangervis Solarte goes 4-for-5
    Yangervis Solarte finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.

    Advice: Solarte is playing fairly regularly with Will Middlebrooks in the minors and Cory Spangenberg on the DH, and he's hit well this month, batting .284 with three homers in 74 at-bats. There's no mixed-league value here at all, but he's giving the Padres a lift. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:38 pm
  • Lucas Duda hits three homers in losing cause
    Lucas Duda hit three homers to plate all three Mets runs Wednesday against the Padres.

    Advice: Oddly enough, the last player to have three homers to account for all of a team's runs was Duda's old competitor, Ike Davis, on July 8, 2012. The Mets lost that one to the Diamondbacks 6-3. Tonight, they lost 7-3. Duda has six homers in his last four games after hitting three in his previous 46 games. Hopefully, he can stay hot like he did in April. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:32 pm
  • Justin Turner will miss a few more games
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Justin Turner will miss a few more games due to the infection in his leg.

    Advice: Turner was forced to sit out on Tuesday and Wednesday after a pimple in his leg became infected and required a trip to the emergency room. Look for Alberto Callaspo and Alex Guerrero to continue see additional playing time in his absence. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:56 pm

  • Rizzo hits two-run shot in win vs. Rockies
    Anthony Rizzo cranked a two-run homer in the Cubs' win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his first home run since July 7. Rizzo has been in an offensive rut, but he still owns a shiny .279/.393/.500 batting line on the season. And he's now up to 17 home runs and 53 RBI in 99 games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:02 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
  • Freeman homers early, Braves defeated by O's
    Freddie Freeman went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run on Tuesday as the Braves lost 7-3 to the Orioles.

    Advice: Freeman, playing in his fourth game since being activated from the disabled list, staked the Braves to a 2-0 lead when he drilled a two-run home run off of Ubaldo Jimenez in the first inning. He's now 2-for-14 since being activated, but still owns a terrific .291/.359/.511 batting line along with 13 home runs and 43 RBI. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:17 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

  • Duda homers as Mets shut out the Padres
    Lucas Duda went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Mets to a win on Tuesday against the Padres.

    Advice: Duda staked the Mets to an early 2-0 lead when he drilled a James Shields offering over the fence in center field. Given how masterful Noah Syndergaard was on the mound, it was the only offense the Mets would need. Duda has three home runs in his last three games, giving him 15 on the season with 42 RBI and a .236/.338/.433 batting line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:45 pm
  • Justin Turner has infection on leg
    Justin Turner is not playing Tuesday due to a pimple on his leg that became infected, necessitating a visit to the emergency room after he had a reaction to medication.

  • 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.
