  • Peralta fills up the box score as D'Backs win
    David Peralta went 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, two RBI, and a run scored as the Diamondbacks defeated the Mariners 8-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Peralta gave the D'Backs an early 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first inning. He tacked on an RBI double in the third, and scored after singling in the sixth. He walked and stole second base in the seventh but was stranded. Peralta has put up great numbers this season, batting .278/.352/.495 with nine home runs and 45 RBI. Yesterday, 10:25 pm
  • Inciarte homers as D'Backs beat the Mariners
    Ender Inciarte had an RBI single and a solo home run in five at-bats Tuesday as the Diamondbacks ousted the Mariners.

    Advice: Inciarte drilled a solo home run to right field off of Hisashi Iwakuma in the fifth inning, extending the Diamondbacks' lead to 3-1. In the eighth, he hit an RBI single to make it an 8-3 game. Inciarte has been swinging a hot bat since coming off of the disabled list, batting .348 (16-for-46) in 11 games. Overall, he carries a .296/.323/.397 line with three home runs, 26 RBI, 41 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Cruz homers, but Mariners fall to the D'Backs
    Nelson Cruz hit a solo home run in a 1-for-4 effort as the Mariners dropped Tuesday's game to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: The Mariners had fallen behind 6-1 after the top of the sixth when Cruz got one back with a solo shot off of Zack Godley in the bottom half. It's his fifth home run in his last eight games, giving him 26 on the season with 61 RBI and a .309/.375/.559 batting line. Yesterday, 10:18 pm
  • Young belts grand slam, scores four runs
    Chris Young had a monster game Tuesday, finishing 3-for-6 with a grand slam, five RBI and four runs scored against the Rangers.

    Advice: Young came up with the bases loaded in the third inning and took Wandy Rodriguez deep for his 12th homer of the year. The grand slam was his second of the season. Young also had an RBI double in the sixth, his second double of the game. The 31-year-old is hitting .263/.315/.491 overall. Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Gregorius has four hits, 3 RBI vs. Rangers
    Didi Gregorius went 4-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored in a lopsided win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gregorius had a three-run triple in the Yankees' 11-run second inning. He added three more singles on the night, raising his batting average nine points with one huge game. Even with nights like Tuesday -- and Monday, when he went 3-for-4 with four RBI -- Gregorius is a defense-first shortstop who is hitting .257/.307/.354 on the year. Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Ryan collects three RBI in lopsided victory
    Brendan Ryan had two RBI doubles -- both coming in the second inning -- and finished 2-for-6 with three RBI in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Yankees batted around in an 11-run second inning, with Ryan providing a two-run double early before capping the scoring with another RBI double later in the inning. The offensive performance was unusual for Ryan, who had just eight RBI in 49 games all of last season. Ryan is hitting a deceptive .276/.323/.517 through 11 games this year. Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Peralta tosses six strong innings to beat SFG
    Wily Peralta allowed two runs in six innings, earning the win on Tuesday against the Giants.

    Advice: Peralta shut the Giants out through six innings, but allowed the first two hitters he faced in the seventh inning to reach base on a walk and a double. Reliever Will Smith came in and allowed both inherited runners to score on out-producing balls in play. Peralta, overall, gave up five hits and two walks while striking out three. He has a solid 3.90 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and a 38/16 K/BB ratio in 60 innings. He'll host the Cubs in his next start. Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Perez falls apart, yields eight runs to Yanks
    Martin Perez completely fell off the rails in the second inning Tuesday, serving up eight runs without recording an out in a loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: Perez cruised through the first inning, allowing a baserunner due to catcher's interference but otherwise getting through it unscathed. That was not the case in the second, when he gave up seven hits -- including three doubles -- and a HBP before being removed. Two more inherited runs scored after Perez left the game. Perez carried a 4.91 ERA into the contest, but he left with a 10.50 ERA and 2.33 WHIP through three starts. An interleague matchup with the Giants is in store on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Gillaspie has two hits, two RBI versus Astros
    Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gillaspie had an RBI double in the first inning before adding an RBI single an inning later. He's enjoyed his new digs through three games, going 5-for-12 with two doubles, three RBI and three runs scored as a member of the Angels. Gillaspie is hitting .249/.288/.378 on the year after being designated for assignment by the White Sox earlier in July. Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Kendrick has 2 of Dodgers' 3 hits in a loss
    Howie Kendrick went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Athletics.

    Advice: Sonny Gray tossed a three-hit shutout, and Kendrick was responsible for two of those three hits. The second baseman entered the game 3-for-26 in his previous six games, losing nearly 30 points of OPS. He owns a .285/.333/.397 triple-slash line with seven home runs, 40 RBI, and 45 runs scored. Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Anderson solid over seven in tough-luck loss
    Brett Anderson allowed only two runs in seven innings but lost as the Dodgers were shut out by the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Anderson left his previous start due to Achilles irritation. He would have won on most nights, but he had the misfortune of opposing Sonny Gray. The lefty scattered five hits and a walk while striking out two. The A's pushed across a run in the first on Billy Butler's RBI ground out, and another in the seventh on Josh Reddick's solo home run. Anderson carries an excellent 3.29 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and an 81/31 K/BB ratio over 117 2/3 innings. He toes the rubber at Citizens Bank Park against the Phillies next. Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Gray dazzles in shutout against the Dodgers
    Sonny Gray tossed a three-hit shutout, beating the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Dodgers' only hits came in the fourth inning on a two-out Adrian Gonzalez double, in the seventh when Howie Kendrick led off with a single, and in the ninth when Kendrick kept hope alive with another single. Gray issued one walk and struck out nine in a 110-pitch effort. He's the AL leader in ERA at 2.16 with a 0.97 WHIP and a 124/36 K/BB ratio over 145 2/3 innings. He'll have a good opportunity to improve on that as he gets to face the struggling Indians at home next. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • McHugh allows five runs, gets win vs. Angels
    Collin McHugh allowed five runs over five innings but earned the win Tuesday against the Angels.

    Advice: McHugh wasn't terribly sharp -- he gave up seven hits and walked four in the game -- but he was the sharper of the two starters, and that was good enough to earn him the victory. It was still a less-than-encouraging showing from the 28-year-old, who now owns a 4.43 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 21 starts. He'll look for his 13th win of the year Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Polanco hits three-run double against Twins
    Gregory Polanco hit a three-run double in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: Polanco broke a tie with his bases-loaded double in the eighth inning. He came around to score later in the inning. The 23-year-old finished 1-for-5 in the game. Polanco has come through with some big hits this year but has been up and down, batting .243/.314/.358 with 30 RBI, 48 runs scored and 17 stolen bases on the season. Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Cervelli has three-hit effort versus Twins
    Francisco Cervelli went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

    Advice: The 29-year-old was a quiet pickup this past offseason after the Pirates lost Russell Martin, but he's been an offensive plus for the Bucs this year. The multi-hit game was Cervelli's fourth in a row, raising his line to .301/.367/.410 with 32 RBI and 32 runs scored on the season. Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Brewers activate Peralta from 15-day DL
    Brewers activated RHP Wily Peralta from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Peralta, who has been out for nearly two months with a left oblique strain, posted a 1.59 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings over three minor league rehab starts. He'll make his return to the Brewers' rotation Tuesday against the Giants. Yesterday, 10:10 am
  • Gregorius homers, knocks in 4 runs in a win
    Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a two-run single and a two-run home run as the Yankees downed the Rangers on Monday.

    Advice: Gregorius tied the game at 2-2 in the third inning when he drilled a two-run home run off of Matt Harrison. He added insurance in the seventh inning with a two-run single. It's only the fifth multi-RBI game of the season for the shortstop, who has left Yankees fans pining for Derek Jeter as he's hitting .248/.297/.340 with five home runs and 25 RBI. Monday, 8:31 pm
  • Polanco smacks double in loss to Nationals
    Gregory Polanco went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Polanco hit his double off Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez. It was his 21st two-bagger of the season. The 23-year-old is hitting a somewhat lackluster .243/.316/.359 with four homers, 26 RBI and 46 runs scored this season, though his .276/.375/.434 line for July likes slightly better. If still a little disappointing. Saturday, 8:30 pm
  • Wily Peralta (oblique) returns Tuesday vs. SF
    Wily Peralta (oblique) will return to the Brewers' rotation on Tuesday against the Giants.

    Advice: Peralta has been out since late May with a severe left oblique strain. He allowed just two runs and registered a 12/2 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 minor league rehab innings, so it should be safe to start the right-hander out of the gate in fantasy leagues. Milwaukee will roll with a six-man rotation for a bit. Saturday, 3:32 pm
  • Peralta (head) goes 1-for-3 in return Friday
    David Peralta (head) went 1-for-3 in his return to the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Peralta was drilled in the helmet by a Jose Fernandez pitch in a scary incident on Wednesday, but passed all of his concussion tests and looks to be good to go. He's/aving a nice season in the middle of the D'Backs lineup, slashing .273/.347/.492 with nine homers and 43 RBI in 88 games. Saturday, 5:44 am
  • Polanco homers, knocks in three runs in win
    Gregory Polanco had a big day at the plate Friday, going 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in a 7-5 win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Polanco hit a game-tying two-run homer to cap off a 12-pitch at-bat against Max Scherzer in the fifth inning. He then hit an RBI single in the sixth to give the Pirates a valuable insurance run. The 23-year-old hasn't progressed as hoped so far, but he's currently enjoying his best month of the season. Friday, 7:54 pm
  • Anderson (Achilles) throws bullpen session
    Brett Anderson (Achilles) threw a successful bullpen session on Friday.

    Advice: Anderson has recovered nicely after having to exit Tuesday's start with irritation in his left Achilles and it appears he won't miss a turn in the rotation. He could take the ball as scheduled on Sunday or possibly be pushed back to Tuesday if Zack Greinke returns from paternity leave before then. Friday, 1:55 pm
  • Angels pick up Conor Gillaspie from White Sox
    Angels acquired 3B Conor Gillaspie from the White Sox in exchange for cash considerations.

    Advice: Gillaspie had been designated for assignment last weekend after hitting just .237/.276/.364 this season. Although he's been a disappointment in 2015, Gillaspie isn't a bad option to fill in for the injured David Freese (finger) for the next few weeks at third base. Friday, 10:05 am
  • David Peralta passes concussion tests
    David Peralta (head) passed all of his concussion tests and has been cleared to return to action.

    Advice: Peralta experienced a scare on Wednesday when he was beaned in the helmet by Jose Fernandez. He is not in the lineup on Thursday, though manager Chip Hale indicated it had been a planned day off. Thursday, 4:22 pm
  • Anderson (Achilles) to throw bullpen Friday
    Brett Anderson (Achilles) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Friday.

    Advice: Anderson did some throwing on flat ground Thursday, but his bullpen session will be the real test on if he'll be able to make Sunday's start against the Mets. The southpaw exited Tuesday's start with irritation in his left Achilles, but an MRI showed only minor inflammation. He's confident he'll be able to avoid a stint on the disabled list. Thursday, 2:30 pm
  • Cervelli (arm) back in Bucs lineup Thursday
    Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is back in the Pirates' starting lineup Thursday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Cervelli missed two games after taking a pitch off his right arm on Monday night. He is starting at catcher and batting seventh in Thursday's series opener at PNC Park. Thursday, 12:55 pm
  • Howie Kendrick out of LAD lineup Thursday
    Howie Kendrick is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Thursday evening against the Mets.

    Advice: Enrique Hernandez will start at second base. It's just a day of maintenance for the veteran Kendrick. Thursday, 12:02 pm
  • Gray holds the Blue Jays to 2 runs in 7 IP
    Sonny Gray fired seven innings of two-run ball, allowing nine hits, in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gray struck out three and walked two. The All-Star (he didn't pitch in the game) sits in the top 10 of the AL in most every major statistical category for a starter. Now 10-4 with a 2.30 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 115/35 K/BB ratio, Gray locks horns with the Dodgers next week. Wednesday, 11:02 pm
  • Collin McHugh goes seven strong in win
    Collin McHugh pitched seven innings of two-run ball Wednesday in a victory over the Red Sox.

    Advice: McHugh still has the unimpressive 4.25 ERA, but that's down from 5.04 a month ago. He's won five of his last seven starts, allowing no more than three earned runs in any of them. Wednesday, 8:35 pm
  • Peralta leaves after being hit in helmet
    David Peralta left Wednesday's game against the Marlins after being hit in the helmet by a pitch.

    Advice: It was a scary situation as a Jose Fernandez pitch caught Peralta in the ear hole. Peralta hit the ground but was able to sit up and eventually walk off the field under his own power. A.J. Pollock replaced Peralta in the game. The Diamondbacks should have a better outlook after the game. Wednesday, 8:35 pm
  • Cruz's two HR can't prevent a Mariners loss
    Nelson Cruz went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI, but the Mariners dropped Wednesday's contest to the Tigers.

    Advice: Cruz got back some of the runs the Mariners gave up in an eight-run third inning, taking Anibal Sanchez out to left field for a two-run home run in the fourth. He tacked on a solo home run in the sixth against Sanchez. Cruz homered on Tuesday, which ended a 13-game homerless drought. Perhaps he's rediscovered his power stroke. He has 24 home runs on the year with 57 RBI and a .304/.372/.554 triple-slash line. Wednesday, 7:23 pm
  • Perez knocked for four runs by Rockies
    Martin Perez allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits over six innings in Wednesday afternoon's no-decision against the Rockies.

    Advice: Perez walked four and struck out two in the contest. He was making his second start since being activated from the disabled list on July 13, having missed the entirety of the season to that point as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. In his two starts since his return, he's now allowed seven runs in 11 innings. Despite his somewhat expected struggles since coming back from the injury, he's worth a flier in deeper AL-only formats, though owners shouldn't expect too much. At least at this point. A home start against the Yankees looms on the schedule. Wednesday, 4:05 pm
  • Cervelli (wrist) out again Wednesday vs. KC
    Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is out of the Pirates' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Cervelli had a knot on his arm Tuesday after getting hit by a pitch on Monday night. He should be fine in a day or two. Chris Stewart will start behind the plate as the Royals wrap up a big three-game series in Kansas City. Wednesday, 1:34 pm
  • Minor inflammation in Anderson's Achilles
    An MRI on Brett Anderson's left Achilles showed only minor inflammation.

    Advice: Well, that's a relief. Anderson will try to play catch Thursday and, if it goes well, then throw his regular between-starts bullpen session on Friday. The left-hander could be ready to make Sunday's start against the Mets if he progress as hoped. Wednesday, 12:28 pm
  • Wily Peralta could make another rehab start
    Wily Peralta (oblique) could make another rehab start.

    Advice: Peralta has allowed just two runs with a 12/2 K/BB ratio over 11 1/3 rehab innings so far, going five innings and throwing 74 pitches in his last outing Tuesday. He'll join the Brewers in Arizona this weekend and could possibly start for them on Sunday, but it's possible the club will give him one more rehab start. Peralta has been out since late May with a strained left oblique. Wednesday, 9:35 am
  • No disabled list yet for Anderson (Achilles)
    Brett Anderson (Achilles) reported significant improvement on Wednesday.

    Advice: Anderson exited Tuesday's start with irritation in his left Achilles, but he's feeling much better and thinks he's avoided a serious injury. More will be known after he undergoes an MRI Wednesday, but the left-hander will avoid the disabled list for the time being and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly hasn't yet ruled out the southpaw for Sunday's start. Wednesday, 7:20 am
  • Cruz hits long home run in a win vs. Tigers
    Nelson Cruz hit a tape-measure solo home run in a 1-for-5 effort as the Mariners took down the Tigers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cruz extended the Mariners' lead to 5-1 when he drilled a no-doubter way over the center field fence at Comerica Park in the third inning off of Shane Greene. It's his first home run since July 3. He's certainly fallen off a bit in the AL home run race, currently sitting on 22 with 54 RBI and a .300/.369/.533 batting line. Tuesday, 8:07 pm
  • Anderson exited with irritation in Achilles
    Brett Anderson exited Tuesday's outing versus the Braves with irritation in his left Achilles.

    Advice: Anderson suffered the injury when he tried to field a pop-up and then kicked the ball. He'll undergo an MRI before more is known, but obviously when the Achilles is involved it has the potential to be a long-term thing. Anderson's injury history doesn't lend much optimism, either. Tuesday, 6:24 pm
  • Anderson exits with apparent foot injury
    Brett Anderson left Tuesday's start against the Braves with an apparently left ankle/foot injury.

    Advice: Anderson hurt himself in the third inning when he kicked a comebacker while awkwardly trying to make a play. The severity of the ailment isn't known yet, but the Dodgers should have more on his status later Tuesday. Tuesday, 5:09 pm
  • Cervelli (wrist) out of Pirates' lineup Tues.
    Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is out of the Pirates' lineup on Tuesday night against the Royals.

    Advice: Cervelli suffered some minor swelling in his right wrist Monday when he got hit by a pitch. He'll be available on Tuesday, but only in an emergency. Chris Stewart is starting at catcher for the Bucs at Kauffman Stadium. Tuesday, 2:44 pm
  • Francisco Cervelli leaves with sore wrist
    Francisco Cervelli left Monday's game versus the Royals with right wrist discomfort.

    Advice: Cervelli was hit by a pitch in the wrist and it eventually became too sore, forcing him from the game in the bottom of the seventh. It appears at this point that it's a day-to-day situation. Monday, 7:57 pm
  • Francisco Cervelli exits with apparent injury
    Francisco Cervelli left Monday's game against the Royals with an apparent injury.

    Advice: It's unclear what happened with Cervelli, but he was visited by the Pirates' trainer in the bottom of the seventh and then walked off the field. The club should have an update on him shortly. Monday, 7:43 pm
  • Kendrick logs three hits as Dodgers top Nats
    Howie Kendrick had three hits in four at-bats on Sunday as the Dodgers bested the Nationals 5-0.

    Advice: None of Kendrick's three singles amounted to anything, as he neither scored a run nor knocked one in. As the dog days of summer set in, Kendrick maintains a productive .296/.344/.414 batting line with seven home runs, 37 RBI, and 43 runs scored. Jul 19, 2:03 pm
  • Conor Gillaspie designated for assignment
    White Sox designated 3B Conor Gillaspie for assignment.

    Advice: Gillaspie has had an awful season, batting just .237/.276/.364, and has been on the bench mostly of late with the White Sox going with Tyler Saladino and Gordon Beckham at third base. It's possible he'll draw some interest on waivers from a team in need of corner infield help, but Gillaspie really isn't starting material. Jul 19, 7:59 am
