  • Joey Gallo recalled from Triple-A
    Rangers recalled 3B/OF Joey Gallo from Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Gallo faded after a hot start with the Rangers and then hit just .195 after being demoted to Round Rock. Still, he's obviously very intriguing with his power and could get some starts in left field with Josh Hamilton (knee) limited to pinch-hitting duty at the moment. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:26 am
  • Arenado blasts 32nd homer among three hits
    Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored against the Diamondbacks in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Arenado had an RBI single in the first inning before hitting a solo homer in the third. The third baseman homered in both games of Tuesday's doubleheader, finishing 5-for-8 with three RBI and three runs scored on the day. The 24-year-old is enjoying a tremendous offensive season in Colorado, leading the league in both homers and RBI. Arenado is batting .280/.317/.556 with 32 homers, 77 runs scored and 98 RBI on the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Lawrie homers but A's drop game to Angels
    Brett Lawrie's only hit in four at-bats was a solo home run as the Athletics lost on Tuesday to the Angels.

    Advice: Lawrie gave the Athletics an early 1-0 lead, driving a Matt Shoemaker over the fence in left-center for his 14th home run of the year. He's batting .269/.308/.419 with 53 RBI in what has been another adequate season for the former top prospect. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:15 pm

  • Rendon has two-run double in loss to Cards
    Anthony Rendon had a two-run double and two runs scored against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rendon's two-run double in the third inning got the Nationals on the board, and he scored the third run of the game later in the inning. The double extended Rendon's modest hitting streak to 10 games, and he's hitting .375 (15-for-40) in that span. The good stretch has Rendon's overall line up to .268/.348/.366 as he continues to round into form after a number of injuries marred his first half. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Sano homers among three hits vs. White Sox
    Miguel Sano went 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored Tuesday against the White Sox.

    Advice: It was Sano's solo homer in the bottom of the seventh inning that tied the game and eventually allowed the Twins to come back and secure the win. The homer was his 14th through 50 games this year. He strikes out a lot, too, which was expected, but the Twins will take the whiffs when they come with a .295/.403/.608 line. At just 22 years old, Sano should continue to be a special player for years to come. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:45 pm

  • Escobar scores two runs in three-hit effort
    Eduardo Escobar went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Escobar had a pair of doubles in the game, but it was his RBI single in the second inning that got the Twins on the board against Chris Sale. He would come around to score later in the four-run frame. After a career campaign in 2014, Escobar is once again having a solid season at the dish, batting .261/.306/.441 with eight homers, 42 RBI and 37 runs scored in the Twin Cities.

  • Aaron Hill exits with hamstring injury
    Aaron Hill exited the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Rockies with a left hamstring injury.

    Advice: Hill has dealt with a sore hammy of late and aggravated it while legging out a double Tuesday. He's not going to go on the disabled list with rosters expanded, but Hill would figure to be unavailable for at least a few days. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:54 pm
  • X-rays on Mark Reynolds' wrist are clean
    X-rays on Mark Reynolds' right wrist came back negative.

    Advice: Reynolds was hit by a pitch in the third inning with the bases loaded to force in a run. He initially stayed in but eventually was pulled. He merely has a bruise, though, and is day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:26 pm

  • David Freese activated from disabled list
    Angels activated 3B David Freese from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Freese's return from a non-displaced fracture in his right index finger took much longer than expected, but he's finally ready to go. He'll return to a .240/.309/.397 batting line with 11 homers and is back at third base Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:51 pm
  • Indians activate Chris Johnson from DL
    Indians activated 1B/3B Chris Johnson from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Johnson was sidelined on August 14 due to an infection that stemmed from a spider bite. You can't make this stuff up. Between the Braves and Indians this season, he was hitting .259/.290/.351 with a pair of homers and 11 RBI across 174 at-bats. He had played in just six games with the Indians prior to his infection. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:45 am
  • Blue Jays call up INF Kawasaki
    Blue Jays recalled INF Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Kawasaki has bounced back and forth from the majors to the minors a few times this season while batting 3-for-18 (.167) over 14 games with the Blue Jays. The fan favorite will serve as a backup infielder for the final month of the regular season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 am
  • Astros recall INF Villar from Triple-A
    Astros recalled INF Jonathan Villar from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: The last of the Astros' first wave of September call-ups. Villar, 24, has batted .263/.317/.368 with one home run, seven RBI, and four steals over 38 games with the Astros this season. He'll serve as a backup infielder down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:26 am

  • Mets call up INF/OF Eric Campbell
    Mets recalled INF/OF Eric Campbell from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: Campbell received significant playing time with the Mets earlier this season, but he didn't do much with the opportunity, batting just .179/.301/.276 in 187 plate appearances. Now that the Mets have David Wright back and Juan Uribe in the fold, he's not likely to see the field much. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 am

  • Wallace adds pinch-hit RBI double in a win
    Brett Wallace pinch-hit and delivered an RBI double in Monday's 7-0 victory against the Rangers.

    Advice: The run didn't matter, as Wallace's RBI double made it a 7-0 game in the eighth inning, but it marked the fourth consecutive time Wallace has pinch-hit and gotten a hit. He's operated in almost purely a bench role for the Padres, but has compiled a terrific .347/.418/.612 triple-slash line with three home runs and 12 RBI. The Padres have control of Wallace for three more years, and his performance in the second half of this season could help his case for more playing time in the future. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:10 pm

  • David Freese (finger) to be activated Tuesday
    David Freese (finger) will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

    Advice: The thought had been that he would be activated Monday, but the Angels have decided to wait until rosters expand Tuesday. Freese has been on the shelf since late July with a non-displaced fracture in his right index finger. He's hitting .240/.309/.397 with 11 homers this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:39 pm
  • Brett Lawrie (back) returns to lineup
    Brett Lawrie (back) is back in the Athletics' lineup Monday.

    Advice: Lawrie had to be scratched from Sunday's lineup after his back tightened up on him, but he's ready to go now. He's hit a disappointing .272/.309/.418 in his first season in Oakland. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:42 pm

  • Freese (finger) could be activated on Monday
    David Freese (finger) will join the Angels on Monday in Oakland and could be activated from the disabled list.

    Advice: Freese has been playing in rehab games with Triple-A Salt Lake for the past week with no lingering discomfort in his right index finger. He suffered a non-displaced fracture of that finger back in late July. Angels third basemen have hit a combined .183 with two homers in 36 games with Freese on the shelf, so he should return to a starting gig. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:02 am
  • Brett Lawrie scratched with back tightness
    Brett Lawrie was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to back tightness.

    Advice: It's an issue that crops up on Lawrie from time to time. Eric Sogard has taken his spot at second base. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:48 am

  • Sano (hamstring) back in Twins' lineup Sat.

  • Miguel Sano expected to return on Saturday
    Miguel Sano (hamstring) is expected to return to the Twins lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Sano sat out Friday's game as a precautionary measure due to a minor hamstring injury, but he's fully expected to be ready to go on Saturday. The 22-year-old is hitting an impressive .289/.394/.584 with 12 homers and 38 RBI in 47 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:04 am

  • Brett Lawrie hits long home run
    Brett Lawrie hit a 470-foot homer Friday in the loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The rest of Oakland's offense isn't doing a whole lot, but Lawrie has 14 hits in his last eight games, including three homers and three doubles. If anything, he's played a little better and stayed healthier than the A's should have expected this year. It just doesn't really make up for losing Josh Donaldson. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:22 pm
    12:35 pm vs ^ LAA
     
  • Miguel Sano nursing minor hamstring injury
    Miguel Sano is not playing Friday due to a minor right hamstring injury.

  • Eduardo Escobar homers twice in Twins' win
    Eduardo Escobar hit a pair of solo homers to lead the Twins to a 5-3 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

    Advice: That's three homers and three doubles in five games for Escobar, who has pushed his OPS over .700. He's going to finish out the season as the Twins' starting shortstop after spending much of the first half as a utilityman. Still, he doesn't really have a lot to offer mixed leaguers.

    Nolan Arenado is out of the Rockies' starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Braves.

"I ended up having an infection and they had to treat it with antibiotics," said Johnson. "The last two days I've finally been able to swing the bat." Johnson should be ready to return when rosters expand. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:21 am
  • Sano belts three-run blast in Twins' outburst

  • Sano jumps Twins to lead with two-run homer
    Miguel Sano went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer, a double and three strikeouts in Sunday's 12-inning win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Sano pounced on an offering by Kevin Gausman in the first inning, launching it for a two-run home run. The bomb was his 11th of the season. The 22-year-old has had no issues, at all, adjusting to major league pitching thus far. In 43 games, he's slashing .288/.397/.582 with those 11 bombs, plus 34 RBI. He's homered four times in his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com Aug 23, 3:28 pm

  • Rendon slugs three-run HR, Nats beat Brewers
    Anthony Rendon slugged a three-run homer in the Nationals' 9-5 defeat of the Brewers on Sunday.

    Advice: Rendon's three-run shot blew the game open in the bottom of the fifth inning. He's been swinging the bat well over the last couple of days and would seem very capable of a big push down the stretch. The 25-year-old is currently sitting on a disappointing .707 OPS.
