  • Miguel Cabrera expected to miss six weeks
    Miguel Cabrera is expected to be sidelined for six weeks with a grade 3 left calf strain.

    Advice: The Tigers had hoped that he would be ready to return shortly after the All-Star break, but it appears that the All-Star slugger will be on the shelf until late August. It will be interesting to see if the Tigers look to acquire a bat to replace Cabrera in the lineup, or if his untimely injury will force Dave Dombrowski to become a seller at the trade deadline.

  • Jose Iglesias not in Tigers lineup Saturday
    Jose Iglesias is not in the Tigers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a day of rest for the slick-fielding shortstop. Josh Wilson will draw a rare start in his place and bat eighth against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Rotoworld.com

  • Tigers place Miguel Cabrera (calf) on DL
    Tigers placed 1B Miguel Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left calf.

    Advice: It's the first time in Cabrera's career that he has been on the disabled list. This is a major blow to the Tigers and to fantasy owners, as the All-Star slugger was hitting an absurd .350/.456/.578 with 15 homers and 54 RBI on the season. The hope is that he will be able to return immediately after the All-Star break. In a corresponding move, Jefry Marte was recalled from Triple-A Toledo. Rotoworld.com

  • Reds have no interest in trading Todd Frazier
    Reds general manager Walt Jocketty clarified Thursday that the team will not trade third baseman Todd Frazier.

    Advice: The Reds are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline and have several pieces that should be very popular commodities. Frazier won't be one of them though. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing .281/.341/.600 with 25 homers, 54 RBI and eight stolen bases. Rotoworld.com

  • Cliff Pennington comes up big as Arizona wins
    Cliff Pennington delivered a game-tying single in the sixth and a game-ending sac fly in the 10th as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 4-3 on Friday.

    Advice: Pennington remains a fine utilityman, but the Diamondbacks haven't gotten a ton of use from him this year with Nick Ahmed playing well at short and Aaron Hill acting as the primary fallback at second and third. The runs batted in he collected tonight were just his sixth and seventh of the season, and it was also only his second multihit game. Rotoworld.com

  • Solarte triples in win over Cardinals
    Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Friday's win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Don't expect to see Solarte legging out triples on a regular basis. The three-bagger was his first of the season and just the second of his career. He's hitting .249/.299/.367 with three homers and 29 RBI for the 2015 campaign and shouldn't be relied upon in fantasy formats, despite the newfound existence of wheels on those feet. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Sano drives in first career run with single
    Miguel Sano collected his first major league RBI in Friday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: The all-universe prospect singled home Eddie Rosario in the second inning. He later added a double to finish 2-for-4. Sano did strike out twice, but Twin fans should be happy to see that he seems to be fitting in just fine to start his major league career. Sano hit .274/.374/.544 with 15 homers and 48 RBI through 66 Double-A games prior to his call-up. Rotoworld.com

  • Frazier finds tough sledding against Fiers
    Todd Frazier failed to pick up a hit in Friday's loss to the Brewers, finishing the game 0-for-3.

    Advice: The Reds managed just one extra-base hit in the entire contest and just one run, as the Brewers put up a rare beatdown to the tune of 12-1. Frazier's hit-less game does nothing to obscure what's been a great season to this point. The third baseman is currently slashing .281/.341/.600 with 25 homers, 54 RBI, 54 runs scored and eight steals. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:28 pm
  • Uribe's seventh-inning homer lifts Braves
    Juan Uribe hit a go-ahead solo home run in the seventh inning of Friday's 2-1 win over the Phillies.

    Advice: Uribe's solo shot off of Adam Morgan in the seventh inning snapped a 1-1 tie and served as the final run to score in the game. The bomb was his seventh of the season and gave him 18 RBI for the year. A dependable, if unspectacular, player throughout his career, Uribe is currently hitting a dependable, if unspectacular, .279/.330/.426. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:50 pm
  • Hernandez drives in lone run in loss to ATL
    Cesar Hernandez went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Hernandez's RBI single off Julio Teheran in the fourth inning would score the only run that the Phillies managed in the game. While his power is almost non-existent, he should continue to see at-bats as long as he's able to keep up the average portion of his .285/.374/.376 slash-line. Rotoworld.com

  • Ausmus not optimistic on Cabrera's injury
    Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said after Friday's game that he isn't optimistic that Miguel Cabrera (calf) will be able to avoid the disabled list.

    Advice: The All-Star slugger was forced to leave Friday's game against the Blue Jays after sustaining a left calf strain while running to second base in the fourth inning. He's set to undergo an MRI exam on Saturday, but it sounds as though the most logical scenario has him heading to the disabled list and returning after the All-Star break. The Tigers should have an update on his status after his MRI. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera (calf) set to undergo MRI
    Miguel Cabrera has been diagnosed with a left calf strain and is set to undergo an MRI exam.

    Advice: Cabrera sustained the injury while running the bases during Friday's game against the Blue Jays. The Tigers will know more on his status after the MRI, but a trip to the disabled list could be in play here. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Cabrera leaves game with leg injury
    Miguel Cabrera was removed from Friday's game against the Blue Jays in the fourth inning due to an apparent hamstring injury.

    Advice: Cabrera was running to second base on a 3-2 pitch to Victor Martinez when he pulled up lame. He had to be assisted off the field by the training staff and was walking with a noticeable limp. The Tigers should have an update on his status soon, but any sort of extended absence would be a deadly blow to the Tigers chances of a postseason berth. Rotoworld.com

  • Christian Colon optioned to Triple-A
    Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: Colon hasn't been playing much of late and has picked up just one hit in 16 plate appearances since the beginning of June. Dusty Coleman has replaced him on the roster. Rotoworld.com

    Yankees recalled INF Gregorio Petit from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Petit has hit just .184/.238/.263 over 18 games with the Yanks this season. He'll operate in a utility infielder role. Rotoworld.com

  • Tomas knocks in a pair vs. the Rockies
    Yasmany Tomas smacked a two-run double in Thursday's win against the Rockies.

    Advice: The seventh-inning drive off of Scott Oberg plated A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt and gave the Diamondbacks a 5-1 lead in the eventual 8-1 victory. The Tomas investment looked like an early flop, but he's slashing a tasty .318/.359/.441 through 220 at-bats. If the power comes and the average doesn't suffer because of it, he's going to be a fantasy star. Rotoworld.com

  • Semien corks 7th HR in win vs. the Mariners
    Marcus Semien hit a solo homer in a 4-0 win versus Seattle on Thursday.

    Advice: Semien finished 1-for-3. His big contribution of the night was talking Roenis Elias deep in the fifth inning to give the A's a 3-0 cushion. Semien is slashing .259/.309/.402 and is on pace for 14 homers and 12 steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Solarte ejected from Thursday's game
    Yangervis Solarte was ejected from Thursday's game in the sixth inning for arguing a check-swing call.

    Advice: Solarte went 1-for-3 with a solo homer before home plate umpire Bob Davidson gave him the boot. His solo shot in the second inning snapped a 22-inning scoreless streak for San Diego. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:05 pm
  • Carpenter reaches base four times in loss
    Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, two walks, and two runs scored Thursday against the Padres.

    Advice: It was his first multi-hit game since June 18. Carpenter has seen his batting average fall 100 points from .378 to .278 since May 1. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:05 pm
  • Sano has infield single in MLB debut
    Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with an infield single in his major league debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano lined out to center field in his first at-bat before striking out swinging in his next two chances. The infield single came in the top of the ninth inning. The Twins plan to use the 22-year-old as their regular designated hitter for the time being, so his power upside is well worth the flier in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:36 pm
  • Sano batting sixth in MLB debut Thursday
    Miguel Sano will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth in his MLB debut Thursday against the Royals.

    Advice: Sano was called up Thursday after batting .274/.374/.544 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI over 66 games this season with Double-A Chattanooga. The 22-year-old offers massive power potential from the right side of the plate. He's expected to serve as the primary DH now that Kennys Vargas has been demoted, so he's well worth a flier in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:41 pm
  • Twins officially promote prospect Miguel Sano
    Twins recalled INF Miguel Sano from Double-A Chattanooga.

    Advice: Sano will take over as the Twins' regular designated hitter in Thursday's series opener against the Royals. The 22-year-old was sporting a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level and he's a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues for his massive power potential. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:57 am
  • Twins calling up top prospect Miguel Sano
    MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins are calling up prospect Miguel Sano.

    Advice: Kennys Vargas has already been optioned to Triple-A Rochester to open up a roster spot. Sano, 22, boasts a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level. He's primarily played third base in the minors, but look for the Twins to use him as their everyday designated hitter. Sano has been a consensus top-20 prospect for going on four years and is worth a shot in every mixed fantasy league for his power potential. Rotoworld.com

  • Steve Tolleson activated, then DFA'd

  • Solarte prevents Padres from getting no-hit
    Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

    Advice: Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • Uribe homers to prevent a shutout loss
    Juan Uribe homered in the ninth inning to prevent the Braves from suffering a shutout loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Braves entered the ninth inning down 6-0, but Uribe at least saved his team the indignity of a shutout, launching a solo home run to left field off of former Brave David Carpenter. Uribe has homered twice in his last three games, but has mostly struggled this season. Including his time with the Dodgers, he has five home runs, 16 RBI, and a .279/.333/.397 triple-slash line.

  • Hernandez to get a chance to stick at 2B?
    Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said Tuesday that he "would like to think that Cesar (Hernandez) has proven that he deserves a chance to be the everyday second baseman."

    Advice: Hernandez, 25, entered Tuesday batting .277/.365/.365 on the season and .328/.394/.406 in June. Chase Utley, meanwhile, is on the disabled list with an ankle injury and sports an ugly .179/.257/.275 line this season. It's hard to believe the Phils would bench Utley even given his struggles, and Mackanin did note that he didn't "want to get ahead of myself." However, if Hernandez keeps performing, it's possible. Notable is that the Phillies have a $15 million club option for 2016 on Utley that automatically vests if he reaches 500 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Carpenter out of Tuesday's lineup
    Matt Carpenter is out of Tuesday's lineup against the White Sox.

    Advice: Chris Sale is on the hill for the White Sox, so it's not a bad time to give Carpenter a bit of a breather. Mark Reynolds will start at third base while Xavier Scruggs plays first. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:04 pm
  • Tomas homers as D'Backs top the Dodgers
    Yasmany Tomas homered and walked in five trips to the plate Monday as the Diamondbacks took down the Dodgers.

    Advice: Tomas lined a two-run home run to left field in the sixth inning off of Yimi Garcia. It barely made it over the fence and was reviewed for fan interference, but was ultimately upheld. The power hasn't quite been there as often as the D'Backs would have liked, but Tomas has otherwise done a fine job at the plate in his first year in the majors, batting .314/.357/.440 with four home runs and 29 RBI.

  • Hernandez stays hot with 2 more hits in loss
    Cesar Hernandez's bat continued to stay hot as he went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run, and a stolen base in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Fresh off a four-hit performance on Sunday, Hernandez logged his fifth multi-hit performance in seven games on Monday. He knocked in the Phillies' first run in the first inning with an infield single and later came around to score on a balk. Hernandez is batting .277/.365/.365 with 25 runs scored, 16 RBI, and seven stolen bases and is now getting regular at-bats while Chase Utley is sidelined. It's not known yet when Utley returns, so those in daily leagues might find utility in Hernandez as a cheap source of stolen bases. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:49 pm
  • Hernandez's four-hit day contributes to a win
    Cesar Hernandez singled four times in as many at-bats, helping the Phillies in a win over the Nationals in the back end of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Advice: It's the second four-hit game of Hernandez's career, with the other occuring on September 28, 2013. The Phillies, despite scoring eight runs, only brought him home once, at the end of their four-run second inning. Hernandez has been hitting well as of late, logging multi-hit efforts in three of his last five games. With Chase Utley on the shelf, he should be a regular in the lineup. He's hitting .271/.361/.361 in 163 plate appearances. Rotoworld.com

  • Frazier slugs 25th home run as the Reds lose
    Todd Frazier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Mets on Sunday.

    Advice: Frazier tied the game up at 2-2 with a solo home run off of Steven Matz. The Reds were otherwise not able to accomplish much offensively. Frazier's career year continues, now sitting on 25 home runs with 53 RBI, eight stolen bases, and a .287/.350/.618 triple-slash line. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:41 pm
  • Paredes homers, reaches four times in win
    Jimmy Paredes went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Paredes reached base all four times he came to the plate, walking in his other two plate appearances. Paredes hit a two-run homer in the third inning before doubling and scoring in the sixth. Paredes continues to hit near the top of the Orioles' order in what has already been a career year for the journeyman. The 26-year-old is hitting .326/.352/.523 with nine homers, 36 RBI and 34 runs scored. Rotoworld.com

  • Juan Uribe goes deep in loss to Pirates
    Juan Uribe blasted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday.

    Advice: Uribe's solo shot off Francisco Liriano tied the game at 2-2 in the sixth inning, but that wound up being the extent of the team's offense in the ballgame. He finished the night 2-for-3 and also drew a walk and is now slashing .275/.332/.380 with four homers and 15 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Todd Frazier slugs 24th homer
    Todd Frazier went 3-for-6 and hit his 24th homer versus the Pirates on Thursday.

    Advice: 24 homers. That's five more than he hit in 150 games in 2013. He did step it up to 29 last year, but it looks like he'll blow right past that this season. He's hit .306 with eight homers and 10 doubles in June. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Carpenter (back) tallies RBI in return
    Matt Carpenter (back) hit an RBI single in his return to the Cardinals' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It was his only hit in four at-bats, and he got gunned down at second base trying to stretch the single into a double. Carpenter missed Tuesday's series opener with tightness around the middle of his back. He should start at third base again on Thursday night. Rotoworld.com

  • Yasmany Tomas goes 4-for-5 in victory
    Yasmany Tomas had a career-high four hits in five at-bats Wednesday as the Diamondbacks came back to beat the Rockies 8-7.

    Advice: Tomas singled in a run as part of the three-run rally in the ninth. He also had a double earlier in the game. Just when it looked like his average was finally starting to tumble some, he's back up to .328 now. That's even though he's sporting a 43/9 K/BB ratio in 189 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

    Yasmany Tomas (illness) is back in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Wednesday night in Denver.

    Advice: Tomas had to be scratched from Arizona's lineup Tuesday due to altitude sickness. He's obviously better-acclimated now. The 24-year-old Cuban has hit .315/.351/.429 with three home runs and 25 RBI through his first 53 games at the major league level. Rotoworld.com
