  • Pederson (shoulder) out of lineup for Dodgers
    Joc Pederson (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    Advice: Pederson was diagnosed with a bruised AC joint in the right shoulder after he ran into the wall while tracking down -- and catching -- a long Chris Carter fly on Tuesday. He did not sustain any broken bones in the collision, but nobody can blame manager Dave Roberts for giving him a day off or two. Trayce Thompson will man center and bat sixth in Wednesday's game. Today, 1:42 pm

  • Curtis Granderson (calf) in lineup vs Nats
    Curtis Granderson (calf) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

    Advice: Granderson was lifted from Tuesday's game after a rain delay due to what manager Terry Collins termed a "small" calf strain. This has been an injury that has nagged Granderson in recent days -- it also forced him out of the lineup on Sunday -- but he is penciled into Wednesday's lineup as the leadoff hitter. Today, 1:27 pm
  • Hanley Ramirez day-to-day with side injury
    Hanley Ramirez is considered day-to-day with an injury to his right side.

    Advice: Ramirez tweaked something on a swing in the sixth inning on Wednesday against the Rays and was eventually pulled from the game. Hopefully it's not an oblique injury, but at least the Red Sox have an off day on Thursday. We should know more on Friday. Today, 12:20 pm

  • Rangers claim Surkamp off waivers
    Rangers claimed LHP Eric Surkamp off waivers from the Athletics; optioned him to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Surkamp was recently designated for assignment by the Athletics. He'll provide some left-handed depth for his new club. Today, 12:15 pm

  • Price strikes out 10 batters in loss
    David Price struck out 10 batters, but took the loss after allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Rays.

    Advice: Price surrendered a solo homer to Brandon Guyer in the second inning before giving up a three-spot in the third. The southpaw appeared to have righted the ship recently, but he has given up 10 runs in his last two starts while seeing his ERA increase from 4.24 to 4.74 in the process. On the bright side, Price leads the American League with 120 strikeouts. He’ll get the Rangers next. Today, 12:12 pm
  • Miller has two hits vs. BoSox on Wednesday
    Brad Miller went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Wednesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Miller got the start despite lefty David Price on the hill and still managed to have a nice day. Tim Beckham went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and hasn’t really hit anybody this season, so we could see more of Miller against left-handers in the future. Today, 12:11 pm

  • Hanley Ramirez exits with apparent injury
    Hanley Ramirez exited Wednesday's game against the Rays in the eighth inning with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Ramirez appeared to tweak his back on a swing in the sixth inning. He stayed in the game initially, but was replaced on defense in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Red Sox should provide an update after the game. Today, 11:47 am

  • Benintendi clubs four hits in Tuesday's loss
    Red Sox OF prospect Andrew Benintendi matched a career-high with four hits Tuesday in Double-A Portland's loss to Trenton.

    Advice: He contributed a pair of doubles and two singles. The 21-year-old has found his stroke this month by hitting .316 with three homers and 16 RBI. He's been especially productive over his last five games with 10 hits in that span. Left field has been a revolving door for the Red Sox this season and there's a chance we could see Benintendi in Boston before the year is over. Today, 10:47 am

  • Adam Plutko stars with seven scoreless innings
    Indians RHP prospect Adam Plutko buckled down and threw seven scoreless frames Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Columbus.

    Advice: He finished with five strikeouts and only one walk. The 24-year-old has made a seamless transition to Triple-A, winning two of his first three starts while providing a masterful 1.93 ERA. Opponents have hit just .182 over that span with 11 strikeouts in 66 at-bats. He's been a rock this year with 90 1/3 innings pitched over 16 outings. It's going to be tough for him to crack Cleveland's excellent starting rotation but Plutko might get a shot when rosters expand in September. Today, 10:41 am

  • Rasmus not in Wednesday's lineup
    Colby Rasmus is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Angels.

    Advice: Marwin Gonzalez will start in left field while Jake Marisnick plays center field. Carlos Gomez will serve as the designated hitter. Today, 10:23 am
  • Moya (knee) back in Wednesday's lineup
    Steven Moya (knee) is back in Wednesday's lineup against the Marlins.

    Advice: Moya missed three straight games with right knee soreness. He's batting seventh in his return against right-hander Tom Koehler. Today, 8:18 am
  • Dickerson (thumb) out again Wednesday
    Corey Dickerson (thumb) is out of the Rays' lineup again Wednesday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Dickerson has now been held out of the lineup for four straight games due to a sore thumb. Consider him day-to-day. Today, 6:49 am

  • Graveman yields four runs to Giants
    Kendall Graveman was unable to secure a quality start in Tuesday's no-decision against the Giants, allowing four runs on nine hits over five innings.

    Advice: Graveman entered Tuesday having surrendered two or fewer runs in his last three outings, but he was unable to find such success against the Giants, as they scored twice in the third inning and twice in the fourth. He will carry a 4.84 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 55/27 K/BB ratio (80 innings) into a home start against the Pirates next time he toes the rubber. Yesterday, 11:38 pm
  • Howard comes up clutch with go-ahead RBI walk
    Ryan Howard snapped a 3-3 tie with a bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning of Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Howard finished the game 0-for-3, but did manage two walks. His second free pass of the evening would be the key one, as he drew it against Brad Ziegler with the bases loaded to push the Phillies to a 4-3 advantage in the top of the ninth inning. They would win by that final score. Veteran slugger Howard is hitting just .151/.211/.349 this season and lost his starting job to Tommy Joseph earlier this month. Yesterday, 11:34 pm
  • Jake Lamb crunches homer, triple in loss
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

    Advice: Lamb's seventh-inning solo homer off David Hernandez boosted the Diamondbacks to a 3-2 advantage. They held that until the ninth inning, but the Phillies would come back with two runs in that frame to overcome the deficit. For the season, Lamb is slashing a strong .286/.366/.584 with 18 doubles, 16 homers and 52 RBI over 255 at-bats. The 25-year-old third baseman is plenty deserving of All-Star consideration. Yesterday, 11:28 pm
  • Chris Davis hits solo homer, double in win
    Chris Davis went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Davis struck for a solo home run to lead off the sixth inning. That was just a throat-clearing for the rest of the frame, as the Orioles would score six more times before the Padres managed to extricate themselves from the mess. Over his last five games, Davis has driven in 10 runs. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .247/.359/.517 with 19 homers and 52 RBI across 271 at-bats. Yesterday, 11:17 pm
  • Granderson fighting through calf strain
    Mets manager Terry Collins said that Curtis Granderson is dealing with a "small" calf strain.

    Advice: Granderson was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Nationals after he had issues getting loose following a rain delay. This calf strain also kept him out of action on Sunday, but doesn't sound like a potential long-term injury. Unless the Mets indicate otherwise, Granderson should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Pederson diagnosed with bruised AC joint
    Joc Pederson is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with a bruised AC joint in his right shoulder.

    Advice: Pederson crashed into the outfield wall at full speed to make a tremendous catch on Chris Carter. Luckily, he was able to avoid any fractures and should return to the lineup in a day or two. Yesterday, 8:58 pm
    5:10 pm x @Mil
  • Joc Pederson leaves game with shoulder injury
    Joc Pederson was removed from Tuesday's game against the Brewers with a right shoulder injury.

    Advice: Pederson slammed into the outfield wall after making a ridiculous catch to rob Chris Carter of extra bases. The Dodgers should provide an update on his status after he's examined. Yesterday, 8:10 pm
    5:10 pm x @Mil
  • Granderson pulled after long rain delay
    Curtis Granderson was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Nationals when he had difficulty getting loose after a long rain delay.

    Advice: The veteran outfielder has logged a lot of innings this season, so manager Terry Collins opted to play things safe when Granderson tightened up. He should be back in the lineup in the next day or two. Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Miller hits 10th home run in loss to Red Sox
    Brad Miller hit his 10th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: Miller connected with a Junichi Tazawa pitch in the seventh inning for the solo bomb. He's now homered four times in his last 11 games after hitting six in his first 58. Miller's .319 batting average over his last 12 games has his overall line up to .248/.299/.455. Yesterday, 7:41 pm
    W, 4-0 vs ^ Bos
  • Ramirez reaches five times in win over Rays
    Hanley Ramirez reached base five times Tuesday, collecting an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Rays.

    Advice: Ramirez had a couple of singles, including an RBI single in the seventh inning, to go along with three walks on the evening. He's now hit safely in seven straight games, scoring seven runs and driving in six in that stretch. The modest hitting streak has Ramirez' line up to .276/.348/.413 with 45 RBI and 42 runs scored. Yesterday, 7:29 pm

  • A's designate Surkamp for assignment
    Athletics designated LHP Eric Surkamp for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Nick Tepesch on the 40-man roster. Surkamp has posted an ugly 6.98 ERA in nine starts with the A's this season. Monday, 3:23 pm

  • Joc Pederson sitting against Francisco Liriano
    Joc Pederson is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Monday against the Pirates.

    Advice: It's no coincidence that the left-handed-hitting Pederson is getting the afternoon off with Francisco Liriano on the mound for Pittsburgh. Pederson also sat Saturday against left-hander Jeff Locke. Trayce Thompson will bat third and play center field. Pederson is still having contact issues (.236 AVG, 66 strikeouts) but his power numbers have been impressive (13 HR, .480 slugging percentage). Monday, 7:13 am
    5:10 pm x @Mil
  • Corey Dickerson nursing sore left thumb
    Corey Dickerson (thumb) missed Sunday's game with a sore left thumb.

    Advice: Dickerson won't be in the lineup Monday against Boston but he's hoping to return on Tuesday. The 27-year-old has struggled in his first year away from Coors Field, hitting just .209 with 13 HR and 34 RBI. Evan Longoria filled in as the DH Sunday against Baltimore. The Rays have sunk to the bottom of the AL East by losing 11 straight. Monday, 5:58 am
    W, 4-0 vs x Bos
  • Chris Davis rocks grand slam in O's victory
    Chris Davis connected for a first-inning grand slam in Sunday's 12-5 win over the Rays.

    Advice: Davis launched his granny off of Rays starter Drew Smyly in the first inning. He would later add a single to finish 2-for-4. The slugger is working to a .240/.355/.498 triple-slash with 18 homers and an even 50 RBI over 267 at-bats. It will take a nice second-half power push to reach the 47 dingers he hit in 2015. Sunday, 2:35 pm
  • Curtis Granderson sitting out on Sunday
    Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Brandon Nimmo is in right field for his major league debut Sunday, and Kelly Johnson is in left and in the leadoff spot. The Mets are also resting Asdrubal Cabrera and Travis d'Arnaud, as Matt Reynolds is at shortstop and Rene Rivera is catching. Sunday, 7:58 am
  • Steven Moya scratched with minor knee injury
    Steven Moya had to be scratched from Saturday's lineup due to soreness in his right knee.

    Advice: Moya fell awkwardly while losing a ball in the lights on Friday, but he says that's not the cause of his knee soreness. He's considered day-to-day. "Just a little soreness," he said. "It was not related to that play." Sunday, 6:49 am
  • Ramirez goes deep for the eight time of year
    Hanley Ramirez hit a solo home run as part of a 2-for-4 game in Texas on Saturday.

    Advice: The homer was Ramirez' eighth of the season. He is batting .270 with 40 runs, 44 RBI and five stolen bases this year. Saturday, 10:02 pm

  • A's option Surkamp to make room for Overton
    Athletics optioned LHP Eric Surkamp to Triple-A Nashville.

    Advice: The A's needed to clear a roster spot for Dillon Overton, who is set to make his major league debut on Saturday. With Surkamp back in the minors, Sean Manaea (elbow) should return to the A's rotation Wednesday against San Francisco. Surkamp is winless in nine starts this season with a disastrous 6.98 ERA. Saturday, 2:31 pm

  • Pederson not in Saturday's lineup
    Joc Pederson is not in Saturday's lineup against the Pirates.

    Advice: He'll take a seat against left-hander Jeff Locke. Trayce Thompson will start in center field while Scott Van Slyke will play left. Saturday, 12:53 pm
    5:10 pm x @Mil
  • Jake Lamb not in Saturday's lineup vs. COL
    Jake Lamb is not in Saturday's lineup versus the Rockies.

    Advice: He'll sit against left-hander Jorge De La Rosa. Brandon Drury will start at third base and bat seventh. Saturday, 10:34 am
  • Miller to serve as designated hitter Sat.
    Brad Miller will serve as the designated hitter in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Orioles.

    Advice: Corey Dickerson was the DH on Friday, but he's starting in left field Saturday. Tim Beckham will make the start at shortstop. Saturday, 8:09 am
    W, 4-0 vs ^ Bos
  • Jake Lamb goes 3-for-4, drives in three
    Jake Lamb had three hits, three RBI and three errors Friday against the Rockies.

    Advice: At least the bat mostly made up for the glove. Lamb tripled and doubled in the contest. He's sitting against a lot of left-handers, but he's currently sporting a .943 OPS, making him one of the NL's top hitters to date. Friday, 10:35 pm
  • Rasmus goes 4-for-5 with a home run on Friday
    Colby Rasmus filled the box score by going 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored on Friday versus the Royals.

    Advice: Rasmus played like an MVP for the first three weeks of the season but had been awful ever since. Tonight he cheered his owners up immensely. Rasmus has been very streaky throughout his career, so perhaps this game is the start of something good. He now has a .245 batting average with ten home runs, 26 runs, 39 RBI and four steals. Friday, 10:26 pm
  • Price gets pounded for six runs on Friday
    David Price was hammered by the Rangers for six earned runs on 12 base hits in only 2 1/3 innings on Friday and was lucky to escape with a no-decision when the Red Sox came back late to win the game.

    Advice: Price's ERA took a beating and is now back up to 4.68 in 102 innings. Considering he gave up so many hits in such a short time Price could have given up even more runs, but only two of the twelve hits went for extra bases and he didn't add to his misery by walking anyone. Price was terrible early in the season but had been pitching very effectively for a long time. This was his first clunker since a May 7th game against the Yankees. He should be one of the better pitchers in the league moving forward. Friday, 9:36 pm
  • Dickerson homers in loss to Orioles
    Corey Dickerson homered as part of a 2-for-4 night with two RBI on Friday.

    Advice: His home run in the first inning was his 13th of the year. Dickerson has struggled mightily since being traded from the Rockies to the Rays. He has a very unlucky .225 BABIP so perhaps better days are ahead for the 27-year-old outfielder. Friday, 7:26 pm
    W, 4-0 vs x Bos
  • Benintendi wasn't a candidate for promotion
    Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski said that prospect outfielder Andrew Benintendi wasn't a consideration to be called up Friday.

    Advice: Chris Young was placed on the disabled list Friday and the Red Sox called up Bryce Brentz instead. Dombrowski said that they are pleased with Benintendi's defense and baserunning and that it could play in the majors right now, but that he isn't quite ready offensively. The 21-year-old is batting .246/.297/.397 over 32 games since his promotion to Double-A Portland last month, but he has swung the bat much better recently. It might not be long before he forces the issue. Friday, 4:08 pm

  • Graveman limits Angels to two runs in win
    Kendall Graveman continued his recent turnaround with a nice effort in Thursday's win over the Angels, allowing two runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Graveman struck out just one, but other than a little two-run fourth inning, kept the scoreboard clean and clear of runs over his 6 2/3 innings of work. The 25-year-old right-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in each of his last three starts. Overall, he holds a 4.68 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 52/26 K/BB ratio across 75 innings. His numbers are trending in the right direction, but there is still work to do here. A road date with the Giants appears next on his schedule. Thursday, 10:16 pm
  • Jake Lamb launches two-run dinger in victory
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

    Advice: Oddly, while the Diamondbacks racked up 15 hits on the evening, they had just two of the extra-base species. Both came in the third inning, with Socrates Brito and Lamb each socking two-run home runs. For his part, Lamb has now homered four times in his last 10 games. He's hit to a strong .279/.360/.563 triple-slash with 17 doubles, 15 homers and 47 RBI over 240 at-bats. A trip to the All-Star Game is by no means a guarantee, but his numbers make him worthy of consideration at the very least. Thursday, 9:45 pm
  • Surkamp to start Friday instead of Saturday
    Eric Surkamp's start has been moved up to Friday.

    Advice: The A's have been trying to piece together their rotation with Rich Hill (groin) and Sean Manaea (elbow) both hurt. Surkamp was originally slated to start Saturday's game against the Angels but instead he'll move up a day and pitch on five days rest. Dillon Overton could be in line to start Saturday. The left-hander has won seven straight for Triple-A Nashville and would be pitching on normal rest. Zach Neal and Jesse Hahn are also candidates to start. Thursday, 5:27 pm

  • Steven Moya reaches three times in win
    Steven Moya doubled in a run and walked twice Thursday as the Tigers edged the Mariners 5-4 in 10 innings.

    Advice: Moya's second walk led to the winning run in the 10th, though he was removed for a pinch-runner after drawing it. It was pretty stunning to see him walking; he had a 15/1 K/BB ratio in 54 plate appearances entering the day. Even in Triple-A, he struck out six times for every time he walked. Moya has big-time power, but his approach leaves a whole lot to be desired, which is why we doubt he'll have lasting value in mixed leagues. Thursday, 2:17 pm
  • Moya's huge night leads the Tigers to victory
    Steven Moya launched two solo home runs to lead the Tigers to a 5-1 victory over the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Advice: The huge rookie finished the game 3-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored. After 53 at-bats he is hitting .321/.333/.623 with three longballs. Moya strikes out a ton and rarely walks, so don't expect a good batting average moving forward. But he will hit a lot of home runs as long as he makes enough contact to stay in the majors. Wednesday, 7:40 pm
  • Struggling Han-Ram dropped to seventh
    Hanley Ramirez has been dropped to seventh in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

    Advice: Ramirez is hitting just .179/.273/.269 in 67 June at-bats. He struck out twice in key spots during Tuesday's loss to the White Sox. His move to seventh in the lineup shouldn't be considered a long-term adjustment, more a breather. Wednesday, 1:36 pm

  • Jake Lamb slugs 14th home run of the year
    Jake Lamb slugged his 14th home run of the season Monday in the Diamondbacks' defeat of the Phillies.

    Advice: It was a two-run shot in the top of the first inning off Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson. Lamb had a massive four-game series in Philadelphia, going 9-for-17 with two homers and five RBI. He has a stellar .932 OPS and 45 RBI in 68 total games this year. Jun 20, 1:03 pm
  • Price fires eight innings of one-run ball
    David Price pitched admirably in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Mariners, allowing one run on eight hits over eight innings.

    Advice: Price struck out seven without walking a batter on the afternoon. Franklin Gutierrez rocked a solo homer off him in the fourth inning, but he otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. After scuffling through April and early May, the ace southpaw has been fantastic. He has made it through eight innings in each of his last three starts and has allowed two or fewer runs in six of his last eight outings. Price will carry a 4.24 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 109/24 K/BB ratio (99 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Rangers next time he takes the mound. Jun 19, 6:59 pm
  • Jake Lamb stays hot with double and triple
    Jake Lamb went 2-for-5 with two RBI in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 defeat of the Phillies on Sunday.

    Advice: Lamb drove in Paul Goldschmidt with an RBI double in the top of the sixth inning and then plated Goldy again with an RBI triple in the bottom of the ninth. He also went 2-for-4 with a home run on Saturday and 3-for-4 on Friday. The third baseman is enjoying a breakout season at age 25, now with a .917 OPS and 43 RBI in 67 games. Jun 19, 1:42 pm
  • Pederson homers, gets three hits at leadoff
    Joc Pederson led off for the first time this season and got three hits, including his 12th home run as the Dodgers beat the Brewers 10-6 on Saturday.

    Advice: Pederson finished 3-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored and one stolen base. The good game boosted his batting average up to a still-subpar .238 on the season. Pederson strikes out a lot and hits the ball in the air frequently, so his owners should not expect a good batting average from him any time soon. He is an odd fit as a leadoff hitter due to his .316 OBP and prodigious power. Right now Pederson is a second-division fantasy outfielder, but he has the potential to be a star if he can hone his natural talent into sharpened skills. Jun 19, 12:08 am
