  • Moustakas (thumb) ties game as pinch-hitter
    Mike Moustakas (thumb) hit a game-tying, pinch-hit, two-run single on Tuesday versus the Nationals.

    Advice: Moustakas then scored the game-winning run on a Lorenzo Cain walkoff RBI single a few batters later. The third baseman was held out of Kansas City's starting lineup because of a nagging thumb contusion. He may be given another "bench day" on Wednesday. 41 minutes ago

  • Napoli (neck) drives in two in return Wed.
    Mike Napoli (neck) had a double, a walk, and two RBI in his return to action Tuesday.

    Advice: The veteran first baseman had been sidelined for a few days in a row because of some mild stiffness in his neck. It was clearly no big deal. Napoli, 34, is batting .210/.273/.420 with 13 RBI in 21 games this season. 46 minutes ago

  • Escobar has four-hit night in win over Nats
    Alcides Escobar went 4-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

    Advice: Escobar swatted four singles on the evening, including a big one with two outs in the ninth inning to extend the game for Lorenzo Cain, who promptly ended it with an RBI single of his own. The stolen base was Escobar's seventh of the season, third-most in the American League. Royals manager Ned Yost is a subscriber to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" theory, leaving Escobar atop a lineup that won the 2015 World Series despite Escobar's .259/.288/.321 line through 26 games. Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Blackmon cracks first homer of season
    Charlie Blackmon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Blackmon led off the contest with a solo home run against Padres starter Andrew Cashner in the top of the first inning. The dinger was his first of the 2016 campaign. A toe injury sidelined him for two weeks in April, but he has legitimate fantasy upside now that he is back in action. Last season, the 29-year-old outfielder slashed .287/.347/.450 with 17 homers, 58 RBI and 43 steals. A 20-20 season is not out of the question if he can maintain his health over the coming months. Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Roark alllows four runs to Royals in ND
    Tanner Roark gave up four runs over 7 1/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Royals.

    Advice: Roark exited with the lead but was let down by closer Jonathan Papelbon, denying him his third win. He gave up six hits, walking two while striking out four in the outing. Roark has been very good this season despite his 2-2 record, posting a 2.58 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with 34 strikeouts in 38 1/3 innings. A stiffer test will come Sunday when the Nationals visit the Cubs. Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Cashner rings up quality start vs Rockies
    Andrew Cashner managed a quality start in Tuesday's win over the Rockies, yielding three runs on five hits over six innings.

    Advice: Cashner was not brilliant by any stretch of the imagination, but he persevered long enough for the Padre bats to overcome an early 3-0 deficit. All three of those runs scored in the first two innings (two in the first, one in the second). For the evening as a whole, the 29-year-old right-hander struck out six and walked three. He will carry a 4.85 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 27/13 K/BB ratio (27 innings) into his next outing, a home date with the Mets. Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Seager busts game open with three-run homer
    Kyle Seager went 2-for-4 with a three run home run in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the A's.

    Advice: The Mariners already held a 5-1 lead when Seager strolled to the plate to face reliever Marc Rzepczynski with two runners on and nobody out in the eighth inning. He essentially put it out of reach with one swing of the bat, clocking a three-run home run to send the Oakland faithful home in a dour mood. Through his first 94 at-bats, Seager is slashing just .181/.274/.436 with five doubles, six homers and 17 RBI. The sky might be brightening, though, as Seager has notched three doubles, two homers and seven RBI over his last four games. Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Billy Burns singles twice in loss to Mariners
    Billy Burns went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and a steal in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: Burns scored the A's first run, coming home on a Jed Lowrie single in the sixth inning. Incidentally, Lowrie and Burns were the only two Athletic batters to finish the game with multiple hits. Outside of that small whirlpool of action (and a late Khris Davis homer), nothing doing for the home team against Hisashi Iwakuma and company. For the season as a whole, Burns is slashing .264/.302/.341 with three doubles, two triples and eight steals. He brings an obvious speed element to the table, if relatively little else. Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Springer's home run leads Astros past Twins
    George Springer hit a two-run home run and scored twice as the Astros topped the Twins 6-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Springer's two-run shot in the fourth inning was his second homer in as many games, giving him six in all. He's got 14 RBI and 16 runs scored to go with those six dingers. There are some highs and lows that come with the 26-year-old's offensive game, but he's hitting .274/.347/.500 through 27 games, a line the Astros will certainly take over a full season. Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Park connects for seventh homer versus Astros
    Byung-ho Park hit his seventh home run of the season Tuesday against the Astros.

    Advice: Park continues to assault the pitches he makes contact with, driving a Collin McHugh offering off the second-deck facade in right field -- his opposite field -- in the sixth inning. He also had a strikeout for the ninth consecutive game, giving him 25 punchouts in 22 games to date. That's what you get with Park, and the Twins will live with it if he keeps hitting the ball hard when he does connect. He's hitting .250/.318/.605 overall. Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Santana hits first homer of 2016 vs. Astros
    Danny Santana went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Leading off the game, Santana took Astros starter Collin McHugh deep to get the Twins on the board. It also got him on the board, as the homer was his first in 12 games this season. It was also his first since his breakout 2014 season. A hamstring injury sidelined him early, but the 25-year-old is batting .283/.298/.391 with the homer and four steals and may once again be a cheap source of speed if he continues to find his way into the lineup regularly. Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Carter blasts two homers in defeat of Angels
    Chris Carter homered twice and had three RBI as the Brewers edged the Angels 5-4 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Carter hit a two-run homer in the third inning and added a solo shot in the fifth. He's now got nine home runs, third-most in the National League, with 21 RBI and 17 runs scored. The power production comes as a shock to no one; the fact that he's hitting .287/.356/.713 while doing it is the real story. That won't last, but the power should, for what it's worth. Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Lucroy stays hot, hits first homer of season
    Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

    Advice: Lucroy hit a two-run homer off Angels starter Nick Tropeano in the fifth inning, his first dinger of the year. He's now put up three straight multi-hit games with a double, triple and a homer in that span. The backstop is hitting .321/.387/.440 in 23 games. Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Tropeano battered for five runs by Brewers
    Nick Tropeano was knocked around for five runs, including three home runs, over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

    Advice: Tropeano saw firsthand what happens when the ball accidentally hits Chris Carter's bat, as Carter victimized the right-hander for two of his three homers allowed on the evening. In all, Tropeano gave up five hits and walked five. It was the first time he'd allowed more than two runs in a start this year, raising his ERA to a still-respectable 3.42. He'll try to get back on track Tuesday against the Cardinals in an interleague tilt. Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Guerra earns win in first major league start
    Junior Guerra allowed four runs over six innings to earn the win over the Angels in his 2016 debut on Tuesday.

    Advice: Guerra gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out three in the outing. The 31-year-old wasn't only making his 2016 debut, he was also making his first-ever MLB start. Guerra will try to make it two for two when he faces the Reds on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Moustakas absent Tues. due to thumb bruise
    Mike Moustakas is absent from the Royals' lineup Tuesday because of a bruised thumb.

    Advice: Moustakas originally bruised the thumb in Anaheim and then jammed it in Seattle. He might also sit out Wednesday. Christian Colon is starting at third base Tuesday night against Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark. Yesterday, 1:56 pm
    11:15 am vs Was
  • Mike Moustakas sitting again Tuesday night
    Mike Moustakas is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday.

    Advice: The thought was that he was just getting the day off on Monday, but it sounds like something could be up. The Royals should provide an update soon. Christian Colon is starting at third base versus Washington. Yesterday, 12:46 pm
    11:15 am vs Was
  • Brewers recall RHP Guerra from Triple-A
    Brewers recalled RHP Junior Guerra from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    Advice: Guerra will start Tuesday against the Angels. Claimed off waivers from the White Sox last October, the 31-year-old had a 4.63 ERA and 23/9 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings over four starts in Triple-A. He made three relief appearances for the White Sox last season, but this will be his first major league start. Fantasy owners have better options to choose from. Yesterday, 5:36 am
  • Mike Moustakas not in Monday's lineup
    Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Advice: He's just getting the day off. Christian Colon will cover third base and bat eighth versus left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Monday, 1:58 pm
    11:15 am vs Was
  • Carter flashes power with a pair of homers
    Chris Carter was locked in during Sunday's 14-5 obliteration of the Marlins, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of homers, three RBI and three runs scored.

    Advice: Not only did Carter homer twice, he also hit his 10th double of the season. The streaky slugger went yard with a two-run shot in the third inning and followed that up with a solo dinger just an inning later. After being non-tendered by the Astros over the winter, Carter is slashing a silly .278/.355/.671 with seven homers and 18 RBI for the Brew Crew. Fantasy owners should luxuriate in this hot stretch, because winter is coming. It always does with Carter. Sunday, 3:30 pm
  • Mike Napoli (neck) remains out of lineup
    Mike Napoli (neck) remained out of the Indians' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's sat out the last two contests with a stiff neck. Napoli should be fine in a day or two. Carlos Santana is filling in at first base. The Indians are also resting Michael Brantley and Juan Uribe on Sunday, as Rajai Davis is in left field and Jose Ramirez is at third base. Sunday, 9:20 am
    3:10 pm vs Det
  • Junior Guerra to start on Tuesday for Brewers
    The Brewers will recall Junior Guerra on Tuesday to make his first major league start against the Angels.

    Advice: A waiver claim from the White Sox last October, Guerra is a former infielder and reliever who turned 31 in January. He's put up a 4.63 ERA and 23/9 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings for Triple-A Colorado Springs this season. The right-hander is a wild card but could potentially be an interesting gamble in deeper leagues. Sunday, 9:13 am
  • Jonathan Lucroy not in Sunday's lineup
    Jonathan Lucroy is absent from the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: It's a routine day off. Martin Maldonado is doing the catching. Sunday, 7:38 am
  • Moustakas doubles in loss to the Mariners
    Mike Moustakas went 2-for-4 with his sixth double of the year in Saturday's defeat to the Mariners.

    Advice: Moustakas used to never be a viable starting option against a left-handed pitcher like Wade Miley, but he's really come into his own as a player. He's now hitting .375 with a pair of doubles and a homer against southpaws this year and was the only offensive threat against Miley all night. Overall, the 27-year-old has a .273/.333/.580 slash line with seven homers and 11 RBI in 22 games. Saturday, 10:33 pm
    11:15 am vs Was
  • Escobar goes scoreless in loss to Mariners
    Alcides Escobar went 0-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: The speedy shortstop is mired in a bit of a slump, going 4-for-35 (.114) over his last eight games. Manager Ned Yost continues to pencil him in atop the lineup, though, which is about the only good thing the 29-year-old has going for his fantasy value at the moment. Saturday, 10:28 pm
  • Seager goes deep in win over Royals
    Kyle Seager launched fifth home run of the season off Yordano Ventura in Saturday's win over the Royals.

    Advice: Seager capped off a huge four-run first inning for the Mariners with a three-run blast. He followed it up with a double and a walk later in the game, making it a very productive night overall. The 28-year-old is only hitting .159/.266/.378 on the year but his .129 BABIP is by far the worst in the majors among qualified players. Expect his performance to skyrocket in the coming months, as that batted-ball luck sorts itself out. Saturday, 10:25 pm
  • Burns smacks two-run single against Astros
    Billy Burns hit a two-run single in the second inning to lead the A's past the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: The A's managed just five hits, but his single with the bases loaded ended up being enough for the home side. Burns has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games to raise his line to .278/.321/.367. He's also doing his stolen base thing, racking up seven steals through the month of April. Saturday, 3:40 pm
  • Mike Napoli out with a stiff neck Saturday
    Mike Napoli (neck) is not in the Indians' lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

    Advice: He's out with a stiff neck. Napoli has already slugged four homers this year but he also has 33 strikeouts in only 78 at-bats. Carlos Santana will make his fourth start at first base. Saturday, 2:34 pm
    3:10 pm vs Det
  • Byung-ho Park clubs sixth home run in loss
    Byung-ho Park clubbed his sixth home run of the season on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Tigers.

    Advice: Park's fourth inning blast off of Jordan Zimmermann wound up being the club's only offense in the contest. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 with a strikeout and is now hitting .227/.288/.561 with a team-leading six homers and eight RBI on the year. Saturday, 2:05 pm
  • Byung-ho Park goes hitless in loss to Tigers
    Byung-ho Park had a rough day at the plate in Friday's loss to the Tigers, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

    Advice: It has been a struggle at the dish in the early going for the Korean import, slashing just .226/.290/.532 with five homers, seven RBI and a 21/5 K/BB ratio in 69 plate appearances. The power appears to be legit, but he'll need to make more consistent contact in order to be a real factor in fantasy leagues. Friday, 8:23 pm
  • Rockies activate Charlie Blackmon from DL
    Rockies activated OF Charlie Blackmon from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Blackmon missed two weeks of action with a toe injury but is back at his regular spot atop the Rockies lineup on Friday. Prior to his injury, Blackmon was hitting just .185/.241/.333 with no homers and three RBI in his first eight games. Friday, 3:38 pm
  • Roark goes seven scoreless vs. Phillies
    Tanner Roark didn’t factor into the decision, but fired seven scoreless frames against the Phillies on Thursday.

    Advice: Roark held the Phillies to just two hits (both singles) and a pair of walks while striking out six. He now has 14 consecutive scoreless innings under his belt and owns a 2.03 ERA and 30/13 K/BB ratio in 31 innings over five starts. We wouldn’t count on more 15-strikeout games in his future, but he’s proving to be an asset in mixed leagues again in his return to the rotation. Thursday, 6:25 pm
  • Burns steals two bases in loss to Tigers
    Billy Burns went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, two runs scored, and two stolen bases Thursday against the Tigers.

    Advice: After drawing a walk in the third inning, Burns stole second and third base before eventually being brought home on a single by Josh Reddick. The speedster lost some playing time to Coco Crisp in the early part of the season, but he has been in the lineup pretty regularly of late. Burns has shown an elite contact rate so far, striking out just five times in 18 games, but it has led to a modest .268/.316/.366 batting line and just one RBI. On the bright side, he has six steals. Thursday, 5:18 pm
  • Cashner cashed for six runs in loss to Giants
    Andrew Cashner pitched poorly in Wednesday's 13-9 loss to the Giants, surrendering six runs (three earned) on four hits over 2 2/3 innings.

    Advice: Cashner struck out just two while walking four in what was generally a sloppy start to watch. The Giants wasted little time in putting up runs on Cashner's line, turning in a three-spot in the first inning and another three-spot in the third. The latter would knock Cashner out of the contest. With a 4.94 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 21/10 K/BB ratio across five starts (21 innings), he's made for an inconsistent fantasy option. The 29-year-old right-hander will play host to the Rockies in his next scheduled start. Wednesday, 4:08 pm
  • Blackmon (toe) to play nine innings at High-A
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) is scheduled to play nine innings of center field Wednesday with High-A Modesto.

    Advice: Blackmon went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his rehab debut on Tuesday, but the Rockies are more worried about his turf toe than any offensive results and he reported no physical issues during or after the game. Blackmon should be ready to rejoin Colorado's active roster this weekend if his toe continues to hold up. He's been on the shelf since April 13. Wednesday, 9:52 am
  • Moustakas clubs solo homer in loss to Angels
    Mike Moustakas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

    Advice: Moustakas opened the game promisingly enough, burning Angels starter Jered Weaver for a solo home run in the first inning. It would be his only hit on the evening, though, and an ineffective Edinson Volquez would ensure that the four runs scored by the Royals in the contest would fall in vain. Moustakas is hitting a shiny .267/.337/.613 with five doubles, seven homers and 11 RBI over his first 75 at-bats. Tuesday, 11:10 pm
    11:15 am vs Was
  • Santana has three hits in second game back
    Danny Santana went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

    Advice: Santana got the start in center field and batted leadoff. It wasn't all good -- he was caught stealing in the ninth inning of a tie game, but was bailed out by his teammates -- but it's hard to complain too much after he missed the past two weeks with a strained right hamstring. With Byron Buxton at Triple-A, Santana should see more starts in center, and possibly more atop the lineup as well, in the weeks ahead. Tuesday, 8:15 pm
  • Kyle Seager hits fourth homer
    Kyle Seager hit his fourth homer of the year Monday off the Astros' Doug Fister.

    Advice: Seager is still hitting just .141, but his slump might be nearing its end. It's not like he's been striking out a ton or struggling to hit for power... he should be just fine. Monday, 10:35 pm
  • Twins activate OF Danny Santana from the DL
    Twins activated OF Danny Santana from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: Santana missed two weeks with a strained right hamstring. He will return Monday to a semi-regular role in the Minnesota outfield with Byron Buxton getting sent to Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding roster move. Santana has some fantasy appeal as a base-stealer, but we wouldn't expect much consistency in any statistical department from the 25-year-old. Monday, 12:25 pm
  • Kyle Seager slugs three-run homer vs. Halos
    Kyle Seager hit a three-run homer in the Mariners' 9-4 defeat of the Angels on Sunday.

    Advice: The three-run shot off Angels starter Matt Shoemaker capped off a four-run opening frame for the visiting team. Seager has gotten off to a sluggish start at the plate this season, batting just .134/.227/.299, but he does have three home runs and nine RBI in 17 games. He'll get it all working eventually. Apr 24, 4:10 pm
  • Blackmon (toe) could return next weekend
    Charlie Blackmon (toe) could be activated from the disabled list next weekend.

    Advice: Blackmon took batting practice and went through outfield drills on Saturday in running shoes and will do the same thing on Sunday with cleats on. If that goes well, he should be ready to roll next weekend. The outfielder has been battling a turf toe injury. Apr 24, 10:56 am
  • Jonathan Lucroy sitting out on Sunday
    Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a day off. Martin Maldonado will catch in Lucroy's place. Apr 24, 7:29 am
