  • Domingo Santana (elbow) scratched at Low-A
    Domingo Santana (elbow) was scratched from a rehab game Monday at Low-A Wisconsin.

    Advice: Santana is still experiencing tenderness in his right elbow and forearm, which obviously isn't a great sign. He's been on the disabled list since June 10. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:22 am

  • A's recall Max Muncy from AAA Nasvhille
    Athletics recalled INF/OF Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: Muncy is batting .257/.366/.314 in 41 plate appearances this season at the major league level. The 25-year-old infielder is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance, even if trades open up playing time for him. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:14 am

  • McKinney also headed to Yanks for Chapman
    Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports that outfield prospect Billy McKinney is also involved in the Aroldis Chapman trade.

    Advice: So now we have McKinney, shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, and right-hander Adam Warren heading to the Yankees along with a fourth unidentified piece. That is a massive haul for New York -- far better than what the Reds received from the Yankees for Chapman this past winter. McKinney has struggled this season at Double-A Tennessee, but he was considered a top-100 prospect leading into 2016 and the 2013 first-rounder is only 21 years old. Chicago landed McKinney from Oakland two years ago in the Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel trade. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:09 am

  • Cubs not making Kyle Schwarber available
    Cubs president Theo Epstein is making it clear that rehabbing slugger Kyle Schwarber is not available for trade, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

    Advice: Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is known to covet Schwarber, but Sherman says Epstein and Co. would not even discuss the 23-year-old as part of a possible return for Aroldis Chapman or Andrew Miller. Maybe a bigger fish will swim along and change Theo's mind, but it sure appears Schwarber will open the 2017 season in a Cubs uniform. He is done for the 2016 season following a major left knee injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:57 am

  • Kim (hamstring) on track to join O's on Tues.
    Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) will play one more rehab game with Double-A Bowie.

    Advice: He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sunday in his rehab debut, but to be fair the opposition was throwing a left-handed knuckleballer -- a difficult matchup for any hitter on short notice. Kim will try for better results Monday, but he'll remain on track to rejoin the Orioles on Tuesday no matter what goes down. The outfielder has been on the disabled list since July 19, retroactive to July 11, because of a strained right hamstring. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:02 am

  • Indians promoting Clint Frazier to Triple-A
    Indians outfield prospect Clint Frazier has been promoted to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Frazier earned the level bump by slashing .278/.357/.473 with 13 home runs, 25 doubles, 48 RBI, and 13 stolen bases in 88 games with Double-A Akron. The 21-year-old was drafted fifth overall in 2013 out of a high school in Georgia and has impressed at just about every turn. He was rated a top-50 prospect leading into the 2016 campaign by both MLB.com and Baseball America. Baseball Prospectus had him ranked 53rd. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:41 am

  • Indians promote Zimmer and Frazier to AAA
    Indians outfield prospect Bradley Zimmer has been promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: Fellow top outfield prospect Clint Frazier will join him on the move. Zimmer, 23, was slashing .252/.370/.472 with 14 home runs, 53 RBI, 31 stolen bases, and 57 runs scored through 92 games this season at the Double-A level. He needs to improve his overall plate discipline, but those counting stats are eye-popping to any fantasy baseball enthusiast. Zimmer was the 21st overall pick in 2014 out of the University of San Francisco. He should make his major league debut later this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:37 am

  • Tyler Collins (neck) slugs pinch-hit homer
    Tyler Collins (neck) slugged a pinch-hit solo homer Sunday in the Tigers' loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Collins' solo shot in the top of the ninth inning off Chicago closer David Robertson was part of a three-homer barrage that tied the game at 4-4. But the White Sox rallied in the bottom of the frame to grab the 5-4 walkoff win. Collins had been sidelined for a couple of days due to muscle spasms in his neck. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:23 am
  • Arcia goes 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sun.
    Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sunday in the Rays' loss to the A's.

    Advice: Arcia made an early exit from Saturday's game after suffering a mild right elbow strain and may have still been in some discomfort for Sunday afternoon's series finale in Oakland. Arcia, 25, is batting .226/.301/.387 with six homers and 19 RBI in 52 games this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:16 am

  • Reddick (back) plays inning of right field
    Josh Reddick (back) played an inning of right field Sunday in the A's defeat of the Rays.

    Advice: That's a pretty good indication that his return to the starting lineup is imminent. Reddick has been bothered by a sore back since Saturday. It's nothing serious. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:13 am

  • Piscotty plates two in loss to Dodgers Sunday
    Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Cardinals fell to the Dodgers on Sunday night.

    Advice: Piscotty's two-run double off Adam Liberatore in the seventh inning pulled the Cardinals to within three runs at 9-6, but that would be as close as they would get. With the two-hit attack, Piscotty is now slashing an impressive .295/.366/.490 with 14 homers and 58 RBI on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Reimold crushes walkoff two-run HR vs. CLE
    Nolan Reimold launched a pinch-hit, walkoff two-run homer to end Sunday's 5-3 win over the Indians.

    Advice: Pinch-hitting for Julio Borbon, Reimold sent the fans home happy when he connected for a walkoff blast against Tribe reliever Cody Allen with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Those heroics are fine and dandy, but for the season, the veteran outfielder has collected just five homers and 13 RBI over 142 at-bats. He does not hold any fantasy value of note. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:29 pm
  • Bruce whacks three-run homer, drives in four
    Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, four RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's 9-8 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Bruce came through with an RBI single in the third inning for his first RBI. The other three would come when he slugged a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth with nobody out. That shot drew the Reds to within 9-8. They failed to scrape together a run to tie it up, though, falling to 38-60 in the process. That is through no fault of Mr. Jay Bruce, who is slashing a stellar .269/.324/.547 with 21 homers and 73 RBI over 349 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:39 pm
  • Pagan falls homer short of cycle in defeat
    Angel Pagan singled, doubled and triple in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Pagan finished 3-for-5, but alas, he couldn't find the power stroke and missed out on the cycle by a home run. The outfielder's three-hit afternoon pushed his triple-slash to .292/.337/.432. In terms of counting stats, he has five homers, 33 RBI, 37 runs scored and nine steals in 250 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:02 pm
  • Martin picks up lone hit in loss to Blue Jays
    Leonys Martin secured the Mariners' only hit in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Martin's little single was all the M's could manage against J.A. Happ and company. While he has had a few big moments this month -- including a two-homer performance against the White Sox on July 20 -- Martin has struggled for the most part since the calendar flipped. He entered Sunday's contest holding a soggy .188/.316/.359 triple-slash over 64 July at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:47 pm
  • Fowler sitting out with 'general soreness'
    Dexter Fowler is not in Sunday's lineup due to "general soreness," according to Cubs manager Joe Maddon.

    Advice: He could just be a little sore after playing two straight games following a disabled list stint. Fowler should be ready to go on Monday. Jason Heyward is in center field, Ben Zobrist is in left and Tommy La Stella is at second base Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:03 am

    Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) will do some running on Sunday.

    Advice: Royals manager Ned Yost said Sunday that Cain is getting close to beginning a rehab assignment. He's been on the shelf for nearly a month with a strained left hamstring but doesn't appear to be too far off from a return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:46 am

  • Mookie Betts (knee) out again on Sunday
    Mookie Betts (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's missed two straight starts after departing Friday's contest with a sore right knee. The good news is Betts is expected to be available off the bench and is hoping to be back in the lineup Monday. Brock Holt is in right field and Bryce Brentz is in left Sunday.

  • Andrew McCutchen sitting out on Sunday
    Andrew McCutchen is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a rare day off for the veteran outfielder. Starling Marte has slid over to center field, Gregory Polanco has moved to left and Matt Joyce is starting in right. The Pirates also have Sean Rodriguez at shortstop and David Freese at third base, as Jordy Mercer and Jung Ho Kang are on the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:58 am
  • Bryce Harper getting a day off on Sunday
    Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a rare day off for the slugger. Chris Heisey is handling right field in his place. The Nats also have Michael Taylor in center field and Trea Turner in the leadoff spot, as Ben Revere is on the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:39 am
  • Chris Colabello sent to Triple-A Buffalo
    Blue Jays reinstated 1B Chris Colabello from the restricted list; designated him off the 25-man roster.

    Advice: He's done with his PED suspension but won't be on the active roster. Colabello remains on the 40-man roster, but he'll just now have to work his way back up through the minors. Colabello was struggling before his suspension and hitting only .189/.262/.324 on his rehab assignment, so it's not a surprise that the Jays want him to continue to work on things in the minors.

  • Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles) hitless in return
    Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles) went 0-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Saturday.

    Advice: Carrera missed a few days of action with a sore Achilles. With Jose Bautista (toe) due back Monday, Carrera's time in the starting lineup is about to come to an end. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:47 am
  • Rosario nabs four hits, three runs versus Sox
    Eddie Rosario went a perfect 4-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

    Advice: All four of Rosario's hits were singles, but that's about all the fault you can find with his night Saturday. The 24-year-old has been a breath of fresh air since being recalled on July 2, batting .396 (21-for-53) with two homers, seven RBI and 11 runs scored. With the Twins going nowhere, it would behoove them to continue to find Rosario at-bats with the hope that this could finally be the breakout that has been promised for years. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:51 pm
  • Stanton breaks out with four hits, homer
    Giancarlo Stanton broke out of a miniature slump in a big way Saturday, finishing 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Marlins past the Mets 7-2.

    Advice: Stanton connected for a two-run home run in the third inning, later adding an RBI single. The big night broke a 6-for-27 (.222) stretch dating back to last week's All-Star break. The homer was his 21st of the season. The 26-year-old is hitting .241/.334/.495 with 55 RBI and 44 runs scored on the year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:13 pm
  • Arcia goes 2-for-3 with an RBI on Saturday
    Oswaldo Arcia went 2-for-3 with an RBI but the Rays lost on Saturday.

    Advice: He stroked an RBI single in the second inning and added a double later in the game. The part-time player is now batting .230 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 152 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:04 pm

  • Bruce blasts three-run bomb as Reds win
    Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run to lead the Reds to a 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Advice: The blast gave him 20 for the season with 69 RBI. He also doubled tonight. His .859 OPS is a nice gift for his owners after his sub-par 2014 and 2015 seasons. Bruce is highly likely to be traded in the next 10 days, but tonight he remained a key member of the team that drafted him in the first round in 2005. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:30 pm
  • Oswaldo Arcia suffers mild elbow strain
    Oswaldo Arcia suffered a mild right elbow strain on Saturday night against the Athletics.

    Advice: Arcia was in obvious pain after a hard swing in the top of the seventh inning. He was 2-for-3 with an RBI in the game and is batting .230/.306/.395 for the year. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:01 pm

  • Josh Reddick scratched with back soreness
    Josh Reddick was scratched from the A's lineup on Saturday due to back soreness.

    Advice: It sounds like a day-to-day type of thing. Reddick has posted a cool .295/.374/.433 batting line in 61 games this season and will be a big trade chip for the Athletics ahead of the August 1 non-waiver deadline. There is known to be interest from the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:19 pm

    Mookie Betts (knee) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Betts was removed from Friday's game due to what has been termed as minor soreness in his right knee, and Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to be safe and give him an extra day to rest. Expect to see him back atop the lineup for Sunday's series finale. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:27 pm

  • Fowler has monster game in return from DL
    Dexter Fowler celebrated his return from the disabled list by going 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three RBI, and two runs scored in Friday’s win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Fresh off missing a month and change with a hamstring injury, Fowler didn’t need any time to shake the rust. He made an immediate impact by socking a leadoff homer against Jimmy Nelson before adding an RBI double one inning later. The 30-year-old faded a bit in June prior to the injury, but he still owns a cool .298/.405/.504 batting line on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:50 pm

  • Many teams interested in outfielder Jay Bruce
    Jon Heyman of TodaysKnuckleball.com reports that the Indians, Rangers, Dodgers, and Blue Jays have interest in Jay Bruce.

    Advice: Heyman adds that the Nationals are "also on the periphery" of the market for Bruce, saying that "perhaps no outfielder is drawing as much interest" as the Red. Bruce was nearly traded to the Blue Jays over the winter, but that deal fell through due to a medical issue involving one of the players. Assuming he's traded, the team that acquires Bruce would have a $13 million option on him for next season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:01 pm
  • Piscotty hits pinch three-run homer Thursday
    Stephen Piscotty hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Piscotty was called on to hit for Matt Adams against lefty Ryan Buchter with two on and one out in a 5-2 game, and he delivered with a blast to center field that just eluded the glove of Travis Jankowski. The homer was Piscotty's 14th of the year to go with 56 RBI and 57 runs scored. The 25-year-old is hitting .297/.370/.497 in his first full campaign. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:46 pm
  • Betts hits leadoff homer in win over Twins
    Mookie Betts finished 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Twins on Thursday.

    Advice: Betts jumped on the first pitch he saw from Twins starter Tyler Duffey, leading off the game with a shot over the Green Monster. He added an RBI double in the Red Sox' four-run eighth inning. Betts now ranks among the league leaders in runs scored and runs batted in from the leadoff spot, a testament to the kind of year he's having. The five-tool beast is now hitting .306/.345/.527 with 19 homers, 62 RBI, 78 runs scored and 16 stolen bases on the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:09 pm

  • Collins remains out of Tigers' lineup
    Tyler Collins (neck) remains out of the Tigers' lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

    Advice: Collins was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to neck spasms and required a "chiropractic adjustment." Mike Aviles will get another start in the outfield. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:57 pm
  • Stanton sits Thursday night versus Phillies
    Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday night against the Phillies.

    Advice: Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and bat leadoff versus Philadelphia right-hander Jerad Eickhoff. Stanton is 1-for-12 (.083) so far in this four-game series. He had been on an offensive tear. Daily Slant: With Stanton out of the lineup, the Marlins will be missing their most potent bat, not to mention that typical leadoff man J.T. Realmuto will also get a night off. This is now a much improved spot for Jerad Eickhoff, who generally pitches well at home (.281 wOBA allowed, career 18.4 K-BB% with a 9.1 HR/FB rate). He also owns a 22.0 K% at home which is the highest mark among pitchers taking the hill tonight. Adam Wainwright and Steven Wright are still safer cash game targets, but Eickhoff is a perfectly suitable tournament target at a lower price tag. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:25 pm
  • Fowler (hamstring) to join Cubs this weekend
    Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said Dexter Fowler (hamstring) will rejoin the team this weekend in Milwaukee.

    Advice: The exact day of his arrival is unclear, but it could be Friday for the opener of the three-game series. Fowler appeared in both games of a doubleheader Wednesday with Triple-A Iowa, going 1-for-5 with a double and a walk. The 30-year-old center fielder will return to a shiny .290/.398/.483 batting line. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:26 am

  • Cubs looking at A's outfielder Josh Reddick
    According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Cubs are "looking at" A's outfielder Josh Reddick.

    Advice: Morosi notes that Cubs president Theo Epstein drafted Reddick in Boston back in 2006. It's been a frustrating 2016 for the 29-year-old outfielder, who missed part of May and most of June with a fractured thumb, but he has been a productive hitter when healthy for going on five years and he's only owed about $3 million on his current contract. Reddick can become a free agent this winter. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:43 am

  • Bradley Zimmer sets career-high with four hits
    Indians OF prospect Bradley Zimmer slugged a career-high four hits Wednesday in a win for Double-A Akron.

    Advice: All of his hits were singles. Zimmer has done a superb job since moving to the leadoff spot. In four games batting leadoff, he's hit .438 with two RBI and a .500 slugging percentage. The 23-year-old is still striking out too much (111 whiffs in 325 at-bats) but the power (14 HR, 52 RBI) and speed (31 steals on 43 attempts) have both been there. He's also scored 54 times this season, which ties him for seventh-most in the Eastern League. Zimmer went to Cleveland with the 21st overall pick in the 2014 draft after starring at the University of San Francisco. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:26 am

    Dexter Fowler (hamstring) went 1-for-5 with a double and a walk in a doubleheader Wednesday with Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Jorge Soler only played in the first game and went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts. Fowler should be ready to return to the Cubs' active roster this weekend if he can avoid a physical setback over the next couple of days. He's been on the disabled list since June 19 because of a right hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:08 am

  • Betts goes 3-for-5 and steals a base on Wed.
    Mookie Betts went 3-for-5, including two doubles, and stole a base on Wednesday.

    Advice: Betts is rocking an amazing .302/.342/.516 slash line with 18 homers, 75 runs, 60 RBI and 16 steals. He is on pace to easily surpass his totals from last year's breakout season in every category. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:36 pm

  • Harper crushes mammoth home run on Wed.
    Bryce Harper crushed a 449-foot home run and finished 1-for-3 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored on Wednesday.

    Advice: The majestic home run was a thing of beauty. It reached the upper deck in right field. Harper's .249/.391/.479 slash line pales in comparison to last year's .330/.460/.649 monster season. Much of the difference is due to his .245 BABIP this year. If that normalizes close to his .319 career BABIP he could carry his fantasy owners to the promised land in September. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:05 pm
  • Walk-off shot one of two homers for Martin
    Leonys Martin launched a walk-off solo home run to end Wednesday's 6-5, 11-inning win over the White Sox, his second homer of the game.

    Advice: Martin's first shot was of the two-run variety. He socked it off White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez in the second inning. The 28-year-old outfielder waited until the bottom of the 11th to crack homer No. 2, this one coming off reliever Dan Jennings. Unfortunately for Jennings, it would finish off the game. For the season, Martin is slashing .245/.324/.427 with 13 homers, 29 RBI and 10 steals over 274 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:16 pm
  • Colabello (suspension) strikes out five times
    Chris Colabello struck out five times in a rehab game with Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

    Advice: Colabello is serving out the tail-end of an 80-game suspension relating to a positive test for a performance enhancer. He will be eligible to return to the Blue Jays on July 23. Five strikeouts are never great, but this rehab assignment only serves the purpose of making sure that Colabello is seeing live at-bats prior to his return. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:28 pm

  • Ezequiel Carrera out with Achilles discomfort
    Ezequiel Carrera is sitting out Wednesday due to a recurrence of Achilles discomfort.

    Advice: Carrera first began having problems with the Achilles in late June. We'll call him day-to-day for now. Darwin Barney is starting in left field and Junior Lake is starting in right field Wednesday in Arizona.Daily Slant: With Carrera out of the lineup, it'll be Darwin Barney leading off against Patrick Corbin with Devon Travis hitting in the 8th spot. Barney's numbers certainly don't jump off the table, but hitting atop of a very potent Toronto order in a hitter-friendly environment makes him a viable punt play. Corbin has allowed a .399 wOBA and a 2.54 HR/9 rate when facing RH bats at home. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:58 am
  • Tyler Collins scratched with neck spasms
    Tyler Collins was scratched from the Tigers' lineup Wednesday because of neck spasms.

    Advice: Mike Aviles will draw the start in right field and bat seventh versus Twins right-hander Ervin Santana. Collins is probably going to be labeled as day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:49 am
  • Reddick hits cue shot walkoff single vs HOU
    Josh Reddick hit a walk-off, opposite-field RBI single to beat the Astros in the 10th inning of Tuesday night's 4-3 victory.

    Advice: Reddick didn't exactly scald the walk-off winner against Tony Sipp, but as the old adage goes, he just needed to hit it where they ain't. In this case, the Astros employed the shift when Reddick stepped to the plate. He proceeded to hit an opposite-field grounder that would have likely been gobbled up by Carlos Correa had the shift not been on. As is, the ball just squeaked through to score Marcus Semien. For the season as a whole, Reddick is slashing .298/.378/.439 with six homers and 23 RBI over 205 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:18 pm

  • Fowler to begin rehab assignment Tuesday
    Dexter Fowler (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll be joined by Jorge Soler, who is coming back from a hamstring injury. Fowler appeared in one rehab game for Low-A South Bend before the All-Star break but quickly abandoned it when he realized he wouldn't be ready for the All-Star Game in San Diego. He shouldn't need more than a few games to shake off the rust. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:04 pm

  • Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) out again Monday
    Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) is not in the Orioles' lineup Monday against the Yankees.

    Advice: He's still nursing a hamstring injury. Nolan Reimold is filling in at left field for the O's. Kim has now missed four straight games and could be headed to the disabled list if his condition doesn't improve quickly. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:59 pm

  • Cashman thinks Schwarber could hit 50 HR
    According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Yankees GM Brian Cashman covets Kyle Schwarber and believes he'd be a threat for 50 homers if he played at Yankee Stadium.

    Advice: The Cubs are in the market for a late-inning reliever and the Yankees have a surplus of those with Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman both being floated as trade options. Cashman obviously has his sights set on Schwarber, but the Cubs have so far shown no interest in trading him, particularly for a rental like Chapman. Schwarber tore both his LCL and MCL in an outfield collision earlier this season. He's expected to be ready for Opening Day next year. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 9:57 am

  • Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) held out again
    Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) remained out of the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He is, however, listed on the lineup card as a reserve, so it appears Kim will avoid a disabled list stint for now. Joey Rickard is in left field. The O's are also giving Matt Wieters a day off, as Caleb Joseph is catching. Rotoworld.com Jul 17, 7:59 am

  • Pagan homers and goes 3-for-5
    Angel Pagan hit a two-run homer as part of a 3-for-5 night at the plate on Saturday.

    Advice: He is now hitting .282/.325/.414 with five home runs, 36 runs, 30 RBI and eight steals after spending a few weeks on the disabled list early in the year. Pagan stole enough bases to be valuable in fantasy leagues in his younger days, but now at 35 years old he is nothing more than an injury fill-in. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 9:54 pm
  • Piscotty gets two hits and two RBI
    Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Marlins on Saturday.

    Advice: His double in the third inning drove in two runs, which is more than his team would need to win the game. Piscotty is now batting .298/.375/.492 with 51 RBI and 55 runs scored in 325 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 7:17 pm
  • Martin doubles, triples in win over Astros
    Leonys Martin went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and run scored in Saturday's win over the Astros.

    Advice: Martin led off the sixth inning with a triple, his second of the season, and came around to score one batter later on a Robinson Cano RBI single. A hamstring injury in late May derailed what was looking to be a breakout year for the 28-year-old, and he's struggled since returning in mid-June. Martin is batting .249/.322/.418 with 11 home runs, 26 RBI, 36 runs scored and nine steals overall. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 7:06 pm
  • Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) to run on Sunday
    Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) will attempt to run on Sunday.

    Advice: Kim's last workout on Thursday did not go well and this could be his last chance to prove he's healthy before being placed on the disabled list. Nolan Reimold and Joey Rickard have split time in left field during Kim's absence. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 2:31 pm

  • Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) still not playing
    Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) is not in the Orioles' lineup Friday against the Rays.

    Advice: He's still battling a nagging hamstring injury. Nolan Reimold is handling left field with Joey Rickard getting the start in right. Kim said his hamstring is feeling better and is hopeful he'll avoid the disabled list. He's hitting a robust .329 over 152 at-bats this season. Rotoworld.com Jul 16, 11:26 am

  • Josh Reddick homers, scores four runs
    Josh Reddick reached four times, homered and scored four runs Friday in Oakland's 8-7 edging of Toronto.

    Advice: Reddick usually comes to the plate with two out and none on, so he's not often in a position to score (or drive in) runs. He had some fun tonight, though. It's the second time in his career that he's scored four runs in a game. He's just the second Athletic in the last two seasons to score four times; Coco Crisp did it on June 25.

  • Stanton goes 2-for-3 with a run and RBI
    Giancarlo Stanton continued his rebound, finishing 2-for-3 with a run and RBI on Friday.

    Advice: He also drew a walk. Stanton has really struggled to hit for average this year. Today's game lifts his line to .238/.335/.500 with 20 home runs, 41 runs and 51 RBI. Everyone knows he has super-human power but his owners need him to improve his batting average if he is going to be a fantasy star. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 9:34 pm
  • Domingo Santana (elbow) near rehab games
    Domingo Santana (elbow) is aiming to begin a minor league rehab assignment in a week or so.

    Advice: Santana has resumed baseball activities after a lengthy shutdown period. The young outfielder was placed on the disabled list June 10 with right elbow soreness and will continue to be eased back into action. We wouldn't expect to see him before mid-August or so.

    Advice: Cain has been taking batting practice and doing other light baseball activities for the last seven days without issue, and manager Ned Yost said Friday that the center fielder is "85 percent ready" for live games. Cain has been on the disabled list since June 29 because of a left hamstring strain. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 1:11 pm

  • Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) still out Friday
    Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) is out of the Orioles' starting lineup Friday versus the Rays.

Fowler has been on the disabled list since June 19 because of a right hamstring injury. He was forced to miss Tuesday night's MLB All-Star Game. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 8:29 am
