  • David Peralta not in D'Backs lineup Saturday
    David Peralta is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday.

    Advice: Ender Inciarte will get the start in left field while Mark Trumbo mans right field. The 27-year-old is slashing .258/.328/.483 with five homers and 24 RBI in 44 games on the season. He should be back in there for Sunday's series finale.

  • Yan Gomes to catch on Saturday and Sunday
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Friday that Yan Gomes will catch on Saturday and Sunday.

    Advice: It will be the first time this season that the backstop has caught consecutive games as he has been eased back into action in his return from the disabled list. The 27-year-old is struggling at the dish, hitting just .133/.156/.167 with one RBI and a 9/1 K/BB ratio in his first eight games.
    Today, 7:02 am
  • Jose Abreu (finger) unlikely to play Saturday
    Jose Abreu (finger) is unlikely to play on Saturday.

    Advice: The 28-year-old slugger was removed from Friday's game due to irritation in his right index finger and was sent for X-rays. Abreu initially sustained the injury two weeks ago during a game in Chicago and it has continued to bother him off and on since. Be sure to check the White Sox lineup before game time, but it would be surprising to see Abreu in there on Saturday.

  • Derek Norris delivers walkoff grand slam
    Derek Norris delivered a walkoff grand slam as the Padres beat the Pirates 6-2 on Friday.

    Advice: Rob Scahill walked the first batter he faced in a 2-2 game, then threw the ball away handling a sac bunt, putting runners on second and third. An intentional walk followed to lead the bases. Scahill almost escaped from there, getting grouders from Alexi Amarista and Yangervis Solarte that both resulted in outs at home. However, Norris ended it with a big blast. It was just his fourth homer, but he has 32 RBI already.
    Yesterday, 11:10 pm
  • Craig Kimbrel perfect in victory
    Craig Kimbrel recorded his first win in relief after pitching a perfect ninth in a tie game against the Pirates on Friday.

    Advice: Kimbrel struck out two of the three batters he faced. He hasn't thrown many perfect innings this year -- this was his first since May 8 -- but three nice outings in a row could be taken as an indication that he's on the right track.
    Yesterday, 11:07 pm
  • Buster Posey homers, doubles
    Buster Posey drove in three runs with a homer and a double as the Giants topped the Braves 4-2 on Friday.

    Advice: Following a quiet April, Posey has hit .333 with five homers, 17 RBI and 17 runs scored in May. He's also on pace to walk more than he's struck out for the first time in his career (17/20 K/BB).
    Yesterday, 11:02 pm
  • Trevor Bauer strikes out 10 Mariners
    Trevor Bauer allowed two runs over seven innings and struck out 10 against the Mariners on Friday.

    Advice: Bauer has pitched at least seven innings in four starts starts, giving up five runs over 29 1/3 innings during that span. He did take the loss tonight, but his ERA is down to 2.97.
    Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Robertson notches 10th save of season
    David Robertson pitched a scoreless 11th inning Friday against the Astros to convert his 10th save of the season.

    Advice: After blowing back-to-back saves earlier this week, Robertson bounced back nicely in this one, working around a two-out single to finish off the victory. The 30-year-old has a 2.49 ERA and 32/3 K/BB ratio over 21 2/3 innings of work this season and is clearly a top-tier closer in fantasy leagues.
    Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Nelson gives up four runs in no-decision
    Jimmy Nelson took a no-decision Friday after allowing four runs over six innings against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Nelson gave up seven hits, including a pair of solo home runs. While he didn't get the win, he struck out eight and didn't walk a batter, which is a good sign. He had walked nine batters over his previous two starts. The 25-year-old will bring a 3.90 ERA into a challenging assignment against the Cardinals on the road next week.
    Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Lind homers in loss to Diamondbacks
    Adam Lind went 3-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Lind launched a two-run homer off Rubby De La Rosa in the bottom of the third inning before adding an RBI double in the fifth. The 31-year-old came into Friday's action hitting just .187 this month. He'll likely be happy to see the calendar flip to June.

  • Peralta homers against Brewers on Fri.
    David Peralta went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, two walks, and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Batting out of the cleanup spot,, Peralta had an RBI double in the first inning and a solo homer in the third. The 27-year-old has quietly been very useful in fantasy leagues this season, batting .258 with five home runs, 24 RBI, and an .812 OPS over 44 games.
    Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Rendon plays seven inning in rehab game
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) played seven innings in a minor league rehab game with Double-A Harrisburg on Friday.

    Advice: Rendon went 1-for-4 at the plate with a single and three strikeouts. The most important take-away is that he was able to field his position without issue. The 24-year-old continues to work his way back from oblique and knee injuries and is on track to rejoin the Nationals before the end of next week.

  • Jose Abreu leaves game with irritated finger
    Jose Abreu was forced to leave Friday's game against the Astros due to irritation in his right index finger.

    Advice: It's an issue that cropped up earlier in the season as well for Abreu, causing him to depart from a game mid at-bat when he had difficulty gripping the bat. The injury doesn't appear to be very serious though, so consider the slugger day-to-day.
    Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Ramos has two hits in loss to Reds
    Wilson Ramos went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in a loss to the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: Ramos came into Friday's action with just one hit (a home run) in 21 at-bats over his last six games. That was after hitting safely in 19 out of 20 games. Fantasy owners will have to hope that this is the start of another hot streak.
    Yesterday, 7:23 pm
  • Jones singles, strikes out twice vs CWS
    Adam Jones went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

    Advice: Jones did hit a single against Chris Sale, but otherwise, he was held quiet. He hasn't had many of these kinds of games this season. For the year, Jones is hitting .313/.353/.472 with six homers, 25 RBI and 21 runs scored. His bat is one of the most consistent in the majors.
    Thursday, 1:09 pm
  • David Robertson probably won't pitch Thursday
    White Sox manager Robin Ventura said David Robertson probably won't pitch in Thursday's doubleheader.

    Advice: Robertson blew back-to-back saves on Tuesday and Wednesday, and Wednesday's appearance was a two-inning affair. Chicago will play the matchups if a save opportunity arises at some point Thursday at Camden Yards. Robertson still owns a shiny 2.61 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 31/3 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings this season and is not at all in danger of losing his job as the White Sox closer.
    Thursday, 8:30 am
  • Robertson bitten by Donaldson again, but wins
    David Robertson blew the save but vultured a win as the White Sox won 5-3 in 10 innings over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Advice: Robertson was victimized by Josh Donaldson on Tuesday as he hit a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. Donaldson bit him again on Wednesday, hitting a game-tying solo home run in the ninth. The White Sox rallied for two runs in the top of the 10th and Robertson tossed a scoreless bottom-half to grab the win. He's 4-1 and 9-for-12 in save chances with a 2.61 ERA and a 31/3 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings.
    Wednesday, 1:27 pm
  • Abreu doubles, triples, knocks in two in win
    Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a triple and a two-run double as the White Sox beat the Blue Jays in 10 innings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Abreu started the scoring, knocking in two with a double off of Marco Estrada in the third inning. He set up the White Sox to take the lead in the 10th inning with a leadoff triple. He then scored on an Adam LaRoche single. Abreu is batting .284/.346/.497 on the year with eight home runs and 29 RBI.
    Wednesday, 1:15 pm
  • Nick Hundley absent from lineup Wednesday
    Nick Hundley is not in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: It's simply a routine day off. Michael McKenry is at catcher in Hundley's place.
    Wednesday, 7:12 am
  • Yan Gomes sitting out on Wednesday
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: As expected, he hasn't been catching back-to-back games as he eased back into things in his return from the disabled list. Roberto Perez is behind the dish in Gomes' place.
    Wednesday, 6:32 am
  • Robertson serves up a walk-off 3-run homer
    David Robertson blew his second save on Tuesday, serving up a walk-off three-run home run in a loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Robertson, who got the final out of the eighth inning, entered the bottom of the ninth protecting a 9-7 lead. He allowed a lead-off single to Josh Thole, followed by a Jose Reyes double to bring up Josh Donaldson. Donaldson clubbed a walk-off three-run home run to right field. Robertson falls to 9-for-11 in save chances with a 2.41 ERA and a 29/2 K/BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings.
    Tuesday, 7:59 pm
  • Abreu's HR, 4 RBI not enough in loss to Jays
    Jose Abreu went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and an RBI ground out in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Abreu gave the White Sox a short-lived 5-3 lead with a three-run home run to left field off of R.A. Dickey. He added an RBI ground out in the middle of a three-run eighth inning as well. The White Sox entered Tuesday's game averaging only 3.5 runs per game, the worst in the American League. But it's not Abreu's fault as he has eight home runs, 27 RBI, and a .274/.339/.476 triple-slash line.
    Tuesday, 7:55 pm
  • Hundley launches fifth homer in loss to Reds
    Nick Hundley hit his fifth home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

    Advice: Hundley provided the only offense on the night for the Rox, as his fifth inning solo homer was one of the team's four hits. Hundley actually had two of them, as he finished 2-for-3 with the blast. Hundley how has five homers and 16 RBI to go with a .317/.356/.504 line as the team's everyday backstop.
    Tuesday, 7:13 pm
  • Rendon plays three innings in simulated game
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) played three innings Tuesday in a simulated game.

    Advice: Rendon even stole third base at one point in the game, which manager Matt Williams took as a sign that he's finally "uninhibited" by his oblique and knee injuries. Rendon should be ready to make his 2015 debut late next week if he's able to avoid further setbacks. The 24-year-old hit .287/.357/.473 with 21 home runs, 17 stolen bases, and 111 runs scored in 153 games last season for Washington.

  • Kimbrel allows Angels to walk off in the 9th
    Craig Kimbrel didn't take the loss, but allowed the Angels to walk off winners in the ninth inning on Monday.

    Advice: Kevin Quackenbush allowed the Angels to put runners on the corners with one out, prompting manager Bud Black to bring in Kimbrel to put out the fire. Kimbrel struck out Erick Aybar, then intentionally walked Mike Trout to load the bases for Albert Pujols. Kimbrel broke Pujols' bat, but the grounder snuck into left field for a walk-off single. Kimbrel wasn't charged with the run or the loss, but entered the appearance having allowed runs in seven of his previous 11 outings and he carries a miserable 5.63 ERA with a 17/5 K/BB ratio in 10 innings while going 11-for-12 in save chances.
    Monday, 9:26 pm
  • Ramos hits go-ahead homer vs. Cubs
    Wilson Ramos launched a go-ahead solo home run against the Cubs on Monday.

    Advice: His sixth-inning blast off Justin Grimm ended up being the difference in the ballgame. After hitting just one home run over his first 31 games this season, Ramos has gone deep twice in the last five games. He's hitting .285/.306/.394 on the year.
    Monday, 2:09 pm
  • Yan Gomes not in Indians' lineup on Monday
    Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' starting lineup on Monday afternoon versus the Rangers.

    Advice: Gomes went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his first game back from the disabled list Sunday. He had missed six weeks with an MCL sprain in his right knee. Roberto Perez is at catcher Monday versus Rangers righty Phil Klein.
    Monday, 9:48 am
  • Buster Posey not in Giants' lineup on Monday
    Buster Posey is out of the Giants' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Brewers.

    Advice: It's just a day of rest for Posey. Andrew Susac will catch Tim Lincecum and bat eighth at Miller Park.
    Monday, 9:11 am
  • Rendon to play in simulated game on Monday
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) is set to begin playing in simulated games on Monday.

    Advice: Rendon went through a workout with team on Sunday, taking batting practice in the cage and fielding ground balls at third base. He'll play either three or four innings on Monday and will progress from there. Barring any setbacks, he's on track to join the Nationals in early June.

  • Abreu smacks solo homer in loss to Twins
    Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

    Advice: Abreu hit his solo tater off of Kyle Gibson in the fourth inning. It would be the only run that the White Sox managed to score in the game. The dinger was Abreu's seventh and pushed his RBI total to 23. While he's not hitting at the monstrous level that he was in 2014, he's still posting a rock-solid .282/.349/.474 slash-line.
    Sunday, 2:27 pm
  • Lind fails to record hit against Foltynewicz
    Adam Lind went 0-for-3 with a strikeout and a walk in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

    Advice: Given that the Brewers managed just three hits total against Mike Foltynewicz and the Braves, Lind shouldn't feel too bad about taking the 0-for-3. The veteran first baseman has gone hit-less in his last eight at-bats, but is doing well on the macro level, with a .271/.361/.493 batting line, plus seven homers, 19 RBI and 17 runs scored.
    Sunday, 1:43 pm

  • Nelson walks five in loss to Braves
    Jimmy Nelson couldn't find the strike zone in Sunday's loss to the Braves, walking five as he allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Nelson threw just 60 of his 108 pitches for strikes. In addition to the five walks, he scattered five hits and struck out four. Both runs against him came in the sixth inning, when A.J. Pierzynski hit into a run-scoring fielder's choice and Andrelton Simmons managed an RBI single. When Nelson's able to control his stuff, he's an effective pitcher. He's posting a 3.67 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 47/23 K/BB ratio in 56 1/3 innings, numbers he'll take into a home start against the Diamondbacks next time through the rotation.
    Sunday, 1:37 pm
  • Bauer dominates Reds over 7 2/3 IP in a win
    Trevor Bauer limited the Reds to one run over 7 2/3 innings in a sterling performance en route to a win on Sunday.

    Advice: Bauer allowed only five hits with no walks and four strikeouts. His only mistake came in the seventh inning, resulting in a solo home run to Marlon Byrd. It's his third start in a row he's pitched into the eighth inning while allowing exactly one run. Bauer has certainly lived up to his prospect hype through nine starts this season, owning a 3.02 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and a 55/22 K/BB ratio in 56 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Mariners at Safeco Field next.
    Sunday, 1:23 pm
  • Wilson Ramos absent from Sunday's lineup
    Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Jose Lobaton is catching while Ramos rests.
    Sunday, 7:58 am
  • Yan Gomes (knee) activated from disabled list
    Indians activated C Yan Gomes from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Gomes wound up missing six weeks out of a projected 6-8 week timetable after he went down with a right MCL sprain. The Indians will not let him catch back-to-back games initially, so Roberto Perez will still see a decent amount of time behind the plate over the next couple weeks.
    Sunday, 5:29 am
  • Posey sitting out first game of doubleheader
    Buster Posey is not in the Giants lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Advice: He'll be back in there behind the plate for the nightcap. Andrew Susac is starting in his place behind the dish and will bat eighth against Jordan Lyles.
    Saturday, 10:42 am
  • Rendon to play in simulated games next week
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) took full batting practice for the first time on Saturday and has been cleared to begin playing in simulated games next week.

    Advice: He'll play in a few simulated games in Viera early in the week before heading out on a minor league rehab assignment. At this stage, barring any setbacks, he should be cleared to rejoin the Nationals in early June.

  • Adam Lind not in Friday's lineup

    Advice: He's receiving a day of rest with the Braves throwing lefty Alex Wood. Jason Rogers is starting at first base.

    1:10 pm vs ^ Ari
  • Yan Gomes (knee) to be activated Sunday
    Yan Gomes (knee) will be activated from the disabled list on Sunday.

    Advice: He will start the series finale versus the Reds. Gomes will be catching a full nine innings for the first time on his rehab assignment on Friday, and the Indians will be careful with him initially upon his return, not playing him in back-to-back games. Brett Hayes had been filling in as the club's backup catch and will be sent down on Sunday.
    Friday, 5:56 am
  • Posey goes off for 2B, HR, 3 hits vs. Dodgers
    Buster Posey went 3-for-4 with a double, homer, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 4-0 triumph versus the rival Dodgers.

    Advice: Posey entered the night as a strong play in daily leagues against the left-hander Brett Anderson, and he paid off for those investing handsomely. Interestingly, the homer came against right-hander Yimi Garcia, not Anderson. Posey, on an eight-game hitting streak, is slashing .308/.379/.476.
    Wednesday, 10:15 pm
  • Peralta knocks in three runs in D'Backs win
    David Peralta singled twice and knocked in three runs over five plate appearances in Wednesday's victory against the Marlins.

    Advice: Peralta knocked in a first-inning run on a ground out, added a sacrifice fly in the seventh, and added more insurance with an RBI single in the ninth. The outfielder maintains a productive .276/.327/.500 batting line with four home runs and 18 RBI.
    Wednesday, 7:25 pm
  • Rendon hit and took grounders on Wednesday
    Anthony Rendon (knee, oblique) hit in a cage and took some grounders with the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rendon was placed on the disabled list before Opening Day with a sprained MCL in his left knee and he suffered a strained oblique in early May while rehabbing that knee injury. The Nationals will continue to take it slowly with the 24-year-old third baseman. He's eventually going to need a minor league rehab assignment and remains highly doubtful to debut before the end of May.

  • Posey drives in a run and walks as Giants win
    Buster Posey went 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

    Advice: Posey broke a scoreless tie in the third inning with an RBI single to left-center off of Carlos Frias. As the Dodgers were shut out, it turned out to be the deciding hit. The catcher is now on a seven-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 14 of 16 games so far this month. Posey is batting .295/.369/.439 with six home runs and 19 RBI on the year.
    Tuesday, 10:23 pm
  • Kimbrel escapes with the save after a homer
    Craig Kimbrel allowed a solo home run but still picked up his 11th save as the Padres escaped with a 4-3 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Advice: Staked to a two-run lead, Kimbrel got two quick outs on strikeouts before Chris Coghlan took him out to center field for a solo home run. The flame-throwing right-hander got Mike Baxter to ground out to end the game. Kimbrel has been remarkably hittable this season as he has a 5.74 ERA and has allowed three home runs in 15 2/3 innings. Nevertheless, he's 11-for-12 in save chances with a 23/5 K/BB ratio.
    Tuesday, 10:11 pm
  • Norris doubles late to send Padres past Cubs
    Derek Norris went 1-for-4 with a tie-breaking two-run double as the Padres beat the Cubs on Tuesday.

    Advice: Norris broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the eighth inning when he brought in two runs with a double to left field off of Pedro Strop. The catcher is batting a productive .288/.317/.475 with three home runs and 25 home runs on the season.
    Tuesday, 9:59 pm
  • Bauer holds White Sox to one run in victory
    Trevor Bauer struck out seven over 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball Tuesday, leading the Indians to a 3-1 win over the White Sox.

    Advice: Bauer scattered four hits and three walks in the outing, his second straight allowing just one run in 7 1/3 innings. This time, though, he earned the win. It was his first since April 15, moving him to 3-1 with a 3.31 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. An interleague matchup with the Reds looms on Sunday.
