  • Jocketty: Reds haven't seen fair Bruce offer
    Reds president Walt Jocketty said Thursday that he hasn't received a great offer for Jay Bruce.

    Advice: "Clubs inquire about certain players, but they never want to trade you anything," Jocketty told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "So what’s the point? You wouldn’t believe some of the stuff." We'd expect those offers to improve over the next couple of days as we approach the August 1 trade deadline. Bruce, 29, boasts an .895 OPS with 25 home runs and 79 RBI in 95 games this season. He carries a $13 million team option for 2017. Rotoworld.com 35 minutes ago
  • White Sox option Ranaudo back to AAA
    White Sox optioned RHP Anthony Ranaudo to Triple-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Ranaudo allowed three runs on two hits (both homers) over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday night against the Cubs. He was actually working on a no-hitter before Kris Bryant went deep in the bottom of the sixth. Chris Sale has been reinstated from suspension in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

  • Mets dumpster-diving for relief help
    According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets have expressed trade interest in relievers Daniel Hudson, Jim Johnson, and Joe Smith.

    Advice: They're probably looking at several other options too. Hudson was setting himself up as a valuable trade chip for the Diamondbacks earlier this summer, but he has allowed 25 runs -- 20 earned -- over his last eight innings of work. Johnson and Smith both have season ERAs in the 4.00s. This is dumpster-diving. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago
  • Trayce Thompson (back) swinging bat
    Trayce Thompson (back) began swinging off a tee on Wednesday.

    Advice: And he said he's hoping to begin a minor league rehab assignment sometime next week. Thompson landed on the disabled list July 16, retroactive to July 11, with lower back irritation. He was slashing .225/.302/.436 with 13 homers and five stolen bases through 80 games this season for Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:14 am

  • Jonathan Villar out Thursday vs. Arizona
    Jonathan Villar is not in the Brewers' starting lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Villar was pulled from Wednesday night's game after committing multiple blunders at shortstop and on the basepaths. Brewers manager Craig Counsell was not impressed. Hernan Perez will fill in Thursday versus Arizona. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:44 am
  • Alfaro spouts off for four hits Wednesday
    Phillies C prospect Jorge Alfaro matched a season-high with four hits Wednesday in a win for Double-A Reading.

    Advice: He plated three runs as the Fightin Phils rolled to an easy 11-3 victory over visiting Binghamton. All of his hits were singles. Alfaro's big night came on the heels of a 3-for-20 slump that dropped his average from .297 to .287. Alfaro leads all Eastern League catchers in home runs (12) and RBI (53) this season. The 23-year-old was acquired from Texas last summer in the Cole Hamels trade. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:30 am

  • Jose Reyes (intercostal) doubtful for Friday
    Jose Reyes (intercostal) is doubtful for Friday.

    Advice: Reyes was diagnosed with a Grade 1 intercostal strain on Tuesday afternoon and is still dealing with some discomfort. Mets manager Terry Collins said he's not considering a disabled list stint at this point because the club has a string of games in American League parks next week. That would allow Reyes to DH, but it does seem like an odd strategy considering the veteran infielder suffered the injury on a swing. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:19 am

  • Cespedes out Thursday due to quad flareup
    Yoenis Cespedes is out of the Mets' lineup Thursday because he had a flareup with his quad.

    Advice: Cespedes missed a chunk of time earlier this month with a quad strain, and now it's rearing its ugly head again. Consider him day-to-day for now. Alejandro De Aza is in left field and Juan Lagares is in center field on Thursday afternoon against the Rockies. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:06 am

    Yoenis Cespedes is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Rockies.

    Advice: Alejandro De Aza is in left field and Juan Lagares is in center in the series opener versus Colorado. This is just a day of maintenance for Cespedes, who slugged a two-run homer on Wednesday against the Cardinals. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:49 am

  • KC trying to package Kennedy, Davis; to LAD?
    Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Royals are trying to package Ian Kennedy in a Wade Davis trade, with the Dodgers "a strong match."

    Advice: Los Angeles badly wants Davis, as reported earlier by Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, and the club has deep enough pockets to comfortably take on what remains on the ill-advised five-year, $70 million free agent contract that Kennedy received this winter from Kansas City. Kennedy has been a big disappointment in his first year with the Royals, currently holding a 4.41 ERA through 20 starts. He could eat some innings for a contender, but that's probably about it.

  • Blue Jays sign Erik Kratz to minors deal
    Blue Jays signed C Erik Kratz to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: Kratz was designated for assignment by the Pirates on July 19 and elected to become a free agent a few days alter. He was 6-for-56 (.107) in Pittsburgh and is no more than a depth signing for the Blue Jays. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:05 am

  • Dodgers showing interest in RP Wade Davis
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Dodgers are showing interest in Royals closer Wade Davis.

    Advice: Los Angeles reportedly made a run at Aroldis Chapman this week before he landed with the Cubs. Davis hasn't been as dominant this year as he has been in years past, but the 30-year-old right-hander still ranks among the top relievers in baseball with his 1.60 ERA in 33 2/3 innings. He holds a $10 million team option for 2017, which is a relative bargain. It's not clear what a trade for an elite late-inning arm would do for Kenley Jansen's status as the Dodgers' closer. He has 30 saves this season and a 1.41 ERA in 44 2/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:21 am
  • Boxberger (oblique) on track for Friday
    Brad Boxberger made his second appearance in as many days Wednesday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Boxberger faced two batters, walking one and striking out the other. He is on track to rejoin the Rays' bullpen on Friday after missing nearly two full months with a left oblique strain. Boxberger also had an abdominal injury before that and has been limited to just one appearance this season at the major league level. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:01 am

  • Hammel allows one run in seven innings Wed.
    Jason Hammel led the Cubs to an 8-1 victory over the White Sox on Wednesday by tossing seven innings of one run baseball for his 10th win.

    Advice: The only run he allowed came on a home run by opposing pitcher Anthony Ranaudo. Hammel struck out seven batters, walked two and gave up just five hits. His record improves to 10-5 with a 3.23 ERA in 114 1/3 innings. Hammel draws two starts next week. The first will be at home versus the Marlins on Monday, then he will travel to Oakland for an interleague game using the designated hitter on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Ranaudo loses game in quality start on Wed.
    Anthony Ranaudo allowed three runs on two hits (both were homers) in 6 2/3 innings and took a loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He pitched five scoreless innings before faltering in the sixth inning. He gave up four bases-on-balls and struck out three. The only two hits he allowed were home runs to Kris Bryant and Javier Baez. Ranaudo launched a solo blast of his own in the fifth inning but that won't help his fantasy owners. He was making his first start since being called up from Triple-A. He made two relief appearances for the Rangers early in the season before the White Sox picked him up. It remains to be seen if he will stay in the White Sox' rotation moving forward. He is not a recommended pick-up in standard fantasy leagues despite tonight's solid outing.

  • Duffey could start Monday despite troubles
    Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Tyler Duffey has not been taken off his scheduled Monday start.

    Advice: Duffey was eviscerated to the tune of five runs on eight hits over 1 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Braves. Predictably, Molitor wasn't exactly jumping up-and-down at the prospect of handing the ball back to him for Monday's start against the Indians, but he did offer a half-hearted vote of confidence. "Right now he's scheduled to start Monday," Molitor said. "That's about all I can say about that right now." The 25-year-old right-hander holds a 6.12 ERA for the season as a whole. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Madson earns save but gives up a run on Wed.
    Ryan Madson pitched a shaky ninth inning but earned a save despite giving up a run on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has 22 saves but has also blown six already. At 7.36 K/9 Madson does not have the premium strikeout rate that is the hallmark of reliable closers. He has a 3.89 ERA in 44 innings and is a trade candidate this week. His owners may want to handcuff Ryan Dull quickly. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Tyler Duffey obliterated in loss to Braves
    Tyler Duffey was obliterated on Wednesday, giving up five runs on eight hits in just 1 1/3 innings in a losing effort against the Braves.

    Advice: Duffey walked one and didn't record a strikeout in the abbreviated outing. Just when Twins fans thought it couldn't get any worse after Duffey surrendered six runs over 2 1/3 innings his last time out, he was even worse against a struggling Braves offense on Wednesday. This could be the straw that forces him out of the Twins rotation before he has a chance to take on the Indians in Cleveland on Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:32 pm
  • Cespedes goes 2-for-4 with two-run bomb
    Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-4 with a two-run bomb on Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: The home run put the Mets ahead in the seventh inning but the Cardinals came back to win in the ninth. Cespedes has been banged up lately and missed some games, but he looked good tonight. He is slashing a whopping .297/.367/.566 but his counting stats have not been quite as pretty. He has 22 home runs, 49 runs and 58 RBI. His weak-hitting teammates haven't given him the support he needs to score and drive in runs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:03 pm

  • Reyes (intercostal) out until at least Friday
    Jose Reyes (intercostal strain) will not play until Friday at the earliest.

    Advice: Reyes suffered a Grade 1 intercostal strain during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. He was administered an anti-inflammatory shot on Tuesday night. In terms of silver linings, Reyes at least avoided re-breaking the rib he fractured during the opening week of the 2015 season. He initially feared that Tuesday's injury might be a case of history repeating itself. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:02 pm

  • Bruce whacks solo homer as rumors swirl
    Jay Bruce went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

    Advice: Trade rumors have been bubbling around Bruce's name of late, with ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reporting that the Reds have been pushing dialogues with interested parties as they look to throw in the towel on the 2016 season. For the time being, though, Bruce still plies his trade with the Reds. And he still plies it well. Against the Giants, the slugger rocked a solo home run off Madison Bumgarner to lead off the seventh inning. The bomb snapped a 1-1 tie and stood as the difference in the 2-1 final. Bruce's trade value probably can't get much higher at this point. He is slashing a beautiful .271/.323/.572 with 25 homers and 79 RBI across 362 at-bats. The 29-year-old outfielder has launched home runs in five consecutive games and has homered seven times in his last 10 contests. That is how you increase your trade value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:27 pm
  • Report: Mariners have talked Bruce with Reds
    ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Mariners have "reached out" to the Reds regarding Jay Bruce.

    Advice: Crasnick reported on Tuesday that discussions regarding a Bruce trade have been picking up steam of late, with at least four teams showing legitimate interest in the slugger. This season, Bruce is hitting a stellar .271/.324/.567 with 24 homers and 78 RBI over 358 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:41 pm
  • Jose Reyes diagnosed with intercostal strain
    Jose Reyes has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 intercostal strain.

    Advice: Reyes went to a local hospital for tests after feeling a muscle tweak on his final swing of Tuesday afternoon's 3-2 loss to the Cardinals -- part of a traditional doubleheader at Citi Field. He did not play in the night game (a 3-1 win) and the Mets are expecting him to miss at least a couple of days. This could easily turn into a DL situation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm

  • Oakland sticking with Ryan Madson at closer
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that he will stick with Ryan Madson at closer.

    Advice: Madson blew his sixth save of the season in Monday's loss to the Rangers and has watched his ERA rise every month -- from 1.42 at the end of April, to 2.42 at the end of May, to 3.00 at the end of June, to the 3.77 mark where it sits now. Ryan Dull probably deserves a shot, but it's not going to happen yet. "At this point, we still have confidence in him," Melvin said of Madson. "He’s throwing as hard as he has all year here the last couple times out, he’s performed really well the last couple of times before (Monday)." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:50 pm
  • Reds 'pick up pace' on Jay Bruce trade talk
    According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Reds have "picked up the pace on Jay Bruce trade discussions."

    Advice: Crasnick says the Reds are talking to at least four teams and seeking a top prospect in return. Bruce has revitalized his market value this season, boasting an .889 OPS with 23 home runs and 77 RBI in 93 games. The 29-year-old corner outfielder is scheduled to become a free agent five days after the 2016 World Series. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:13 pm
  • Jay Bruce hits two homers in victory
    Jay Bruce hit a pair of two-run homers off Jake Peavy to lead the Reds to a 7-5 win over the Giants on Monday.

    Advice: One last hurrah for Bruce in a Reds uniform? It was his third two-homer game of the season, the others coming on April 7 and May 18. He's tied with teammate Adam Duvall for fifth place in the NL with 23 homers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:58 pm
  • Ryan Madson blows sixth save
    Ryan Madson took his sixth blown save after giving up a two-run homer to the Rangers in Monday's loss.

    Advice: Madson has given up a whopping five homers and 10 runs in his last 12 innings of work, so his time as a closer could be coming to a close. Ryan Dull has looked like Oakland's best reliever all season long and is worthy of an opportunity. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:37 pm
  • Ranaudo to start vs. Cubs on Wednesday
    Anthony Ranaudo will start against the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ranaudo will start in place of Jacob Turner, who allowed 12 runs in 7 1/3 innings over two starts. Ranaudo posted a 3.03 ERA and 71/12 K/BB ratio over 92 innings in Triple-A this season, but obviously this is a matchup to avoid in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:34 pm

  • Boxberger (oblique) won't return before Fri.
    Brad Boxberger (oblique) will not be activated from the disabled list before Friday.

    Advice: Boxberger has allowed two runs in three innings on his minor league rehab assignment, and he has yet to pitch on back-to-back days. That is scheduled to happen this week, with the Rays likely hoping to see better results. Boxberger has been limited to one appearance at the major league level this season because of oblique and abdominal issues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:03 am

  • Bruce whacks three-run homer, drives in four
    Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, four RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's 9-8 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Bruce came through with an RBI single in the third inning for his first RBI. The other three would come when he slugged a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth with nobody out. That shot drew the Reds to within 9-8. They failed to scrape together a run to tie it up, though, falling to 38-60 in the process. That is through no fault of Mr. Jay Bruce, who is slashing a stellar .269/.324/.547 with 21 homers and 73 RBI over 349 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:39 pm
  • Reyes notches RBI triple in win over Marlins
    Jose Reyes went 1-for-5 with an RBI triple in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

    Advice: Reyes showed that despite his age (33), he still brings a strong speed element to play whenever he steps to the dish. In Sunday's case, he collected an RBI triple against Marlins starter Jose Urena in the third inning. Since the Mets called him up on July 5, the embattled third baseman is slashing .242/.284/.516 with three homers, eight RBI and three steals over the course of 62 at-bats. He has quietly picked up hits in eight of his last 10 games. He is worth a shot in NL-only and deeper mixed-league formats at this juncture. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:34 pm

  • Bruce blasts three-run bomb as Reds win
    Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run to lead the Reds to a 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Advice: The blast gave him 20 for the season with 69 RBI. He also doubled tonight. His .859 OPS is a nice gift for his owners after his sub-par 2014 and 2015 seasons. Bruce is highly likely to be traded in the next 10 days, but tonight he remained a key member of the team that drafted him in the first round in 2005. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:30 pm
  • Several teams inquiring on Wade Davis
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that several teams have called the Royals inquiring on the availability of closer Wade Davis.

    Advice: The Royals, who are considering selling at the trade deadline, are reportedly demanding a King's ransom for Davis. Heyman notes that the current asking price for Davis is higher than the Yankees are demanding for Aroldis Chapman. Davis is still under contract for a very affordable $10 million club option for next season, while Chapman hits free agency after the 2016 campaign, so there's certainly merit to asking for a higher price. Davis value shouldn't change much if he is dealt, as he's likely to close wherever he ends up. The Nationals are one club that Heyman notes have expressed interest in Davis. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:01 pm
  • Hammel gives up two runs in win
    Jason Hammel gave up two runs over five-plus innings Friday in a 5-2 win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Hammel was pulled after giving up a leadoff double in the sixth. All told, he gave up four hits and walked a pair while striking out four. After going winless in six straight starts, he has now won back-to-back outings. He has had a knack for falling apart in the second half in recent years, but he’s bucking that trend so far. He’ll take a 3.35 into a start against the crosstown White Sox next week. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:51 pm
  • Reyes has three hits in win over Marlins
    Jose Reyes filled up the box score Friday against the Marlins by going 3-for-5 with an RBI, two runs scored, and a stolen base.

    Advice: Reyes had a double and a pair of singles. He scored on a pair of sacrifice flies by Yoenis Cespedes. This was Reyes’ first three-hit game of the season and his first multi-hit game since July 10. He’s batting .250/.298/.538 overall. The Mets could use more games like this one from him.

  • Erik Kratz elects free agency
    Erik Kratz has elected free agency.

    Advice: Kratz cleared waivers after being designated for assignment, but he's decided to look for a gig elsewhere rather than accept a minor league assignment. He hit only .107 (6-for-56) with Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:03 pm

  • Many teams interested in outfielder Jay Bruce
    Jon Heyman of TodaysKnuckleball.com reports that the Indians, Rangers, Dodgers, and Blue Jays have interest in Jay Bruce.

    Advice: Heyman adds that the Nationals are "also on the periphery" of the market for Bruce, saying that "perhaps no outfielder is drawing as much interest" as the Red. Bruce was nearly traded to the Blue Jays over the winter, but that deal fell through due to a medical issue involving one of the players. Assuming he's traded, the team that acquires Bruce would have a $13 million option on him for next season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:01 pm
  • Villar hits seventh homer in loss to Pirates
    Jonathan Villar hit his seventh home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.

    Advice: Villar took Pirates starter Francisco Liriano deep for the solo shot in the third inning. He finished 1-for-4 in the game. The power is an added bonus -- Thursday's homer tied his single-season high -- but Villar's speed has been his selling point this year, as he still leads the National League with 34 swipes. The 25-year-old is hitting .301/.384/.430 in his breakout year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:44 pm
  • Duffey battered for six runs by Red Sox
    Tyler Duffey wasn't long for Thursday's game, allowing six runs on nine hits over 2 1/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: It perhaps should have been a sign that Duffey was in for a rough night when Mookie Betts hit the first pitch he saw over the Green Monster. Duffey would allow three runs in the frame and another three in the third inning before getting the hook. The loss was his first in over a month, but the right-hander owns an unsightly 5.71 ERA and 1.46 WHIP through 16 starts this year. An interleague date with the Braves is on tap for Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:02 pm
  • Kennedy bombed for seven earned runs in loss
    Ian Kennedy was shelled for seven earned runs in 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Indians.

    Advice: Cleveland went off for four home runs against Kennedy, with Mike Napoli, Jason Kipnis, Tyler Naquin, and Carlos Santana all getting in on the act. Naquin then homered again off Royals reliever Peter Moylan. Kennedy had been in a decent groove, but his ERA jumped from 3.86 to 4.28 on Wednesday afternoon in Kansas City. A matchup at home against the Angels is next. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:34 pm
  • Cespedes, Walker not in Mets' lineup Wed.
    Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' starting lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Neil Walker and Asdrubal Cabrera will also take a seat against Cubs righty Kyle Hendricks. Michael Conforto is starting in left field and Juan Lagares is in center field in the afternoon game at Wrigley Field. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:34 am

  • Boxberger (oblique) set for rehab game
    Brad Boxberger (oblique) will make another rehab appearance Thursday with High-A Charlotte.

    Advice: Boxberger allowed a solo home run in his rehab debut Monday with Charlotte, but he retried the other three batters he faced and Rays manager Kevin Cash offered a good report on the right-hander Tuesday evening. Boxberger has made just one appearance at the major league level this season due to abdominal and oblique injuries, so the Rays are probably going to ease him back. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:41 pm

  • Cespedes might not play CF on Tuesday
    Mets manager Terry Collins plans to talk to Yoenis Cespedes about whether it's a good idea for him to play center field on Tuesday.

    Advice: Collins said that Cespedes moved cautiously while playing left field on Monday, so he might not want to push it with his recent quad injury. The original plan called for Michael Conforto to make the start in left field on Tuesday and slide Cespedes back over to center field, but that could change now. Stay tuned.

    Advice: Reyes' primary goal is getting more comfortable at third base, but he'll also continuing working in center field just in case.

  • Cespedes to play CF on Tuesday
    Mets manager Terry Collins said that Yoenis Cespedes will play center field on Tuesday.

    Advice: Cespedes prefers to play left field, partially to protect his recent quad injury, but he'll slide over to center field on Tuesday in order to go Michael Conforto's bat in the lineup. However, the Mets don't plan to make this a regular thing. Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Monday that Conforto could see time in center field now that he's back from the minors. That's not an ideal alignment. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:27 pm

  • Yoenis Cespedes said he prefers left field
    Yoenis Cespedes said he'd prefer to stay in left field for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: He's spent most of the year in center but returned to the lineup as a left fielder on Sunday. Cespedes won the AL Gold Glove as a left fielder last season so he has plenty of experience at the position. Left field is certainly the less taxing of the two spots and Cespedes said his quad is only about 80-90 percent right now. If Cespedes becomes a permanent fixture in left field, it will be good news for Juan Lagares and Alejandro De Aza but bad news for Michael Conforto and Curtis Granderson, who have been used exclusively on the corners this year.
