  • Posey has 3 hits in Giants 6th straight loss
    Buster Posey went 3-for-4 Tuesday in a 3-1 setback against the Pirates.

    Advice: Posey came into tonight in a 3-for-17 slump, so it was nice to see the big game, though it came without an extra-base hit, run scored or RBI. It was that kind of night for the offense, and it's been that kind of week for the Giants, who are free-falling. San Francisco has been outscored 27-6 during its current six-game losing streak.

  • J.P. Arencibia homers twice, drives in seven
    J.P. Arencibia had a ridiculous night at the plate Tuesday, finishing 4-for-5 with two doubles, two home runs and seven RBI against the Yankees.

    Advice: Arencibia connected on a solo shot in the fifth inning before blasting a grand slam in the seventh. His 12 total bases were a career high for a single game, and it was the eighth two-homer game of his career. The power has always been present, but his .183/.223/.404 line is what keeps him from being a fantasy option.

  • Teixeira homers, scores three times in win
    Mark Teixeira went 1-for-2 with a home run, three walks and three runs scored in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was a triumphant return to the lineup for the 34-year-old, who had missed more than a week with a lower left lat strain. The homer was his 18th in 78 games this year, and he's got 50 RBI to boot. Now healthy and, apparently, seeing the ball well, Teixeira can safely be inserted back into fantasy lineups going forward.

  • Gillaspie enjoys a multi-hit game as Sox win
    Conor Gillaspie singled three times in five at-bats, scoring once and driving in a run, as the White Sox enjoyed an easy 11-4 victory over the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's Gillaspie's fourth multi-hit game in his last five games. The third baseman has done nothing but hit all season, enjoying a .327/.379/.467 slash line with four home runs and 38 RBI.
    Yesterday, 7:51 pm
  • Martinez finishes with 3 hits as Tigers lose
    Victor Martinez singled three times in four at-bats, but the Tigers were routed by the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: The 35-year-old had been in a bit of a slump since the second half began, but he was able to enjoy his first three-hit night since June 14. Due to missing time with injuries, as well as the All-Star break, the veteran hasn't homered since July 3, but he still maintains an impressive .325/.387/.568 slash line with 21 home runs and 57 RBI. He's four home runs away from tying his career high of 25.
    Yesterday, 7:41 pm
  • Abreu homers, drives in four as White Sox win
    Jose Abreu went 3-for-4, hitting a two-run home run and a two-run double in Tuesday's trampling of the Tigers.

    Advice: Abreu added insult to injury, smoking his 31st home run in the seventh inning, accounting for the fifth and sixth runs in a seven-run frame. In the eighth, Abreu doubled in a pair of runs to make it 11-2. As a result, Abreu now leads the big leagues in RBI with 83. Just for good measure, the Cuban rookie also has a fantastic .299/.349/.632 slash line.
    Yesterday, 7:37 pm
  • Frazier puts Reds on the board in shutout
    Todd Frazier knocked in what turned out to be the deciding run, finishing 2-for-4 overall in Tuesday's 3-0 victory over the D'Backs.

    Advice: Frazier singled in Billy Hamilton in the first inning, giving the Reds a 1-0 lead. It would be all the offense Mike Leake needed, as the Reds' starter blanked the D'Backs over 7 2/3 innings. Jonathan Broxton and Aroldis Chapman combined to get the final four outs for the shutout. With Joey Votto out, Frazier and Devin Mesoraco have been the lifeblood of the struggling Reds' offense. The third baseman has a .280/.340/.475 slash line with 20 home runs, 55 RBI, and 16 stolen bases.
    Yesterday, 6:58 pm
  • Belt could be game-ready by this weekend
    Brandon Belt (concussion) could be cleared to begin a short rehab assignment or possibly be activated from the disabled list by this weekend.

    Advice: Belt passed a concussion test Monday, clearing the way for him to resume swinging a bat Tuesday. He'll incorporate additional activities as the week goes one before playing in games by the weekend. The first baseman has been out of action since July 19.

  • Ben Paulsen optioned to Triple-A
    Rockies optioned 1B Ben Paulsen to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Paulsen had 10 hits in 22 at-bats while up with the Rockies, but he's no longer needed with Justin Morneau back from the DL. He'll be back later this season.

  • Giants call up Travis Ishikawa from Triple-A
    Giants purchased the contract of 1B Travis Ishikawa from Triple-A Fresno.

    Advice: Ishikawa will help out at first base with Brandon Belt still recovering from a concussion. The 30-year-old was batting .271/.349/.446 with 11 homers and 45 RBI in 71 games at Fresno but is doubtful to hold fantasy value.
    Yesterday, 1:58 pm
  • Chris Davis sitting Tuesday due to an illness
    Chris Davis is out Tuesday because of an illness.

    Advice: Davis should be fine after a day or two of rest. Steve Pearce is at first base and Delmon Young is serving as the Orioles' DH on Tuesday night versus the Angels.
    Yesterday, 1:24 pm
  • Napoli out on Tuesday with swelling in finger
    Mike Napoli has some swelling in one of his fingers.

    Advice: It's the reason he's out of the Red Sox starting lineup for the second time in three games. Mike Carp, who's thought to be available via trade, is starting at first base for Boston on Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
    Yesterday, 1:20 pm
  • Davis not in Tuesday's lineup
    Chris Davis is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Angels.

    Yesterday, 12:18 pm
  • Napoli not in Tuesday's lineup
    Mike Napoli is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: This will be his second time out of the lineup in the past three games. We haven't heard anything about an injury, so perhaps the Red Sox are just using this as an opportunity to showcase Mike Carp, who is starting at first base Tuesday.
    Yesterday, 12:15 pm
  • Lucas Duda out of Tuesday's lineup
    Lucas Duda is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

    Advice: Duda has been the hottest hitter in the Mets' lineup of late, but he'll take a seat against left-hander Cole Hamels. Eric Campbell will make the start at first base.

  • Teixeira (lat) singles as pinch-hitter

    Yesterday, 12:47 am
  • Brandon Belt passes concussion test Monday
    Brandon Belt (concussion) passed a concussion test Monday.

    Advice: He could resume baseball activities as soon as Monday. It's obviously great news for the Giants, as Belt should rejoin the lineup in short order now that his post-concussion symptoms appear to be behind him. The first baseman has been out of action since July 19.

    Mark Teixeira (lat) is out of the Yankees' starting lineup again Monday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Teixeira hasn't played since last Saturday due to a lower left lat strain, but he came through an extensive workout Sunday with no issues. The Yankees remain hopeful that he'll be able to avoid a DL stint and return soon.
    Monday, 1:45 pm
  • Martinez delivers RBI double against Angels
    Victor Martinez had an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: The Tigers managed just three hits on the afternoon against Angels starter Hector Santiago and the Angels bullpen, with Martinez' first-inning double plating the only Tigers run. It was just his second RBI since the All-Star break after racking up 55 RBI in the first half. Martinez is hitting .320/.383/.566 and statistically still ranks among the best hitters in the American League with two months to play.
    Sunday, 5:20 pm
  • Duda sinks Brewers again with game-winning HR
    Lucas Duda hit his second game-winning home run in three days on Sunday, as his two-run homer proved to be the difference in the Mets' 2-0 win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Duda tortured the Brewers in the four-game set, hitting three homers and driving in six. He's got four home runs in his last six games to give him 18 on the season. The first baseman is batting .259/.356/.500 with 56 RBI and has put himself into the mixed league discussion with his recent power surge.
    Sunday, 3:37 pm

  • Belt still experiencing concussion symptoms
    Brandon Belt (head) is still experiencing post-concussion symptoms and has yet to be cleared for baseball activity.

    Advice: Belt is scheduled to see a specialist on Sunday, who will hopefully provide a clearer picture of what's going on and a timeline for his return. Adam Duvall will continue to see the bulk of the action at first base while he's sidelined.

  • Lonnie Chisenhall (illness) sitting out again
    Lonnie Chisenhall (illness) remained out of the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Mark Teixeira (lat) could return to the Yankees' lineup as soon as Tuesday.

    Advice: Teixeira went through an extensive workout Sunday morning and came out of it with no issues. He's missed the last week with a lower left lat strain but will avoid a trip to the disabled list. "Hopefully he's a player for us soon," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.
    Sunday, 7:43 am
  • Lonnie Chisenhall scratched due to illness
    Lonnie Chisenhall has been scratched from the lineup Saturday versus the Royals due to illness.

    Saturday, 3:56 pm
  • Yankees to make decision on Teixeira Sunday
    The Yankees will decide on Sunday whether Mark Teixeira (lat) will require a trip to the disabled list.

    Advice: Teixeira is scheduled to do stretching and running on the field before Saturday's game, then will do tee and toss on Sunday before a determination is made. He has been sidelined since Sunday with a lower left lat strain.
    Saturday, 8:57 am
  • Eric Hosmer appears as defensive replacement
    For the second straight night, Eric Hosmer (hand) entered Friday's game as a defensive replacement.

    Advice: Hosmer is dealing with a bruised right hand, and still hasn't been able to swing the bat. Expect it to be another day or two before he is able to return to the Royals starting lineup.
    Saturday, 1:35 am
  • Chris Davis homers to lead Orioles
    Chris Davis homered in the top of the 10th inning to break a 1-1 tie and lead the Orioles past the Mariners 2-1 on Friday.

    Advice: Davis hasn't had a whole lot of reason to celebrate this year, but he came through in a big spot tonight. It was his 17th homer in 310 at-bats this year, which is still a pretty good clip, even if it's well off last year's pace. The problem is that he has just 36 singles and 10 doubles on the year, leaving him with a .203 average.
    Friday, 10:47 pm
  • Duda delivers go-ahead blast against Brewers
    Lucas Duda delivered a go-ahead two-run homer in a 3-2 win over the Brewers on Friday.

    Advice: The Mets entered the top of the ninth inning down 3-0, but David Wright knocked in the first run with an RBI single and Duda followed with a long blast to right-center field. The 28-year-old has now gone deep three times in his last four games and is up to 17 home runs and 53 RBI on the year. It looks like the Mets made the right choice between him and Ike Davis.

  • Jose Abreu's 30th home run powers White Sox
    Jose Abreu launched his 30th home run of the season on Friday, powering the White Sox to a 9-5 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.

    Advice: The White Sox came out of the gate firing in this one, with a pair of singles to start the game followed by Abreu's three-run blast off Kevin Correia. He finished the night 2-for-5 with three RBI and a pair of runs scored, and is now hitting .292/.341/.620 with 30 long balls and 77 RBI in his first 353 big league at-bats. He's easily the favorite to take home Rookie of the Year honors in the American League.
    Friday, 8:13 pm
  • Teixeira not expected to return until Monday
    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Friday that he doesn't expect Mark Teixeira (lat) to return to the lineup until Monday at the earliest.

    Advice: That means the Yankees will play with a short bench for the remainder of the weekend rather than opting to put Teixeira on the disabled list. He has been sidelined since Sunday due to a lower left lat strain.
    Friday, 7:08 pm
  • Brandon Belt (concussion) makes progress
    Brandon Belt (concussion) reported improvement with his post-concussion symptoms on Friday, but there remains no clear timetable for his return at the moment.

    Advice: Belt is scheduled to see a specialist over the weekend in San Francisco. He's eligible to come off of the disabled list as soon as Sunday, but that looks like a longshot at this point.

    Advice: Belt will visit with a specialist this weekend in San Francisco. The first baseman has been sidelined for the last week after being hit with an errant throw during batting practice and his return is nowhere in sight. Perhaps there will be more clarity with his situation after he's seen the specialist.

  • Eric Hosmer enters as defensive replacement
    Eric Hosmer entered Thursday's game as a defensive replacement.

    Advice: Hosmer's bruised right hand leaves him unable to swing a bat at the moment, as he was pinch-hit for by Raul Ibanez. He could be limited to defensive work for a few more days.
